Now she wanna photo, you already know tho. One ring rules 'em all, that's the motto n*gga. Frodo. What's good young world? Ayo it's tax season: And no, black people, you can't claim Red Tails as a dependent, I don't care how many times you went to see it. But, you can be thankful you ain't got the tax man shakin' you down for over 100K, like the homie Bow Wow.
Maybe it was an oversight, maybe it was intentional, but Uncle Sam wants his racks. Late last year, was reported that Mr. Wow [pause] owed the IRS a nice chunk of change, but a recent report indicates the sum may be much more than previously thought.
In November, it was reported that Bow Wow owed over $90,000 in unpaid taxes from 2006. Now, TMZ reports, it appears as though Bow Wow is in more trouble with the IRS than originally thought. A new tax lien was filed on January 9 in Georgia, saying Bow Wow owes $15,279.62 for unpaid taxes from 2008 and another $19,700.91 from 2010. In sum, Bow Wow owes $126,086.14. (Hip Hop DX)
$126,086.14 in unpaid taxes. You know it's serious when the government wants their 14-cents. I think The RZA would agree that the sh*t is ... f*ckin' ridiculous. Dah well. I'm sure he'll pay up and all will be well again.
In other news ... GQ Magazine is known for its insightful articles, award-winning photos and 3,000 cologne ads per issue. But the popular men's mag is also known for it's annual crowning of 'Best Dressed Man.' This year, the award goes to UK rapper Tinie Tempah.
Rapper Tinie Tempah has been crowned this year's best-dressed man - while the Duke of Cambridge has dropped out of the annual list. The Wire star Idris Elba, The Dark Knight's Christian Bale, Kasabian guitarist Sergio Pizzorno and Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown ... The worst-dressed list is topped by US rapper Chris Brown.

Oh yeah: GQ named Chris Brown 'Worst Dressed Man.' Last year, I saw a homeless dude wearing a t-shirt that said, "Hi Hater." How Chris lost to that guy is beyond me.
The 'Everybody Hates Chris' campaign continues.
For those of you unfamiliar with rappers from across the pond, Tempah was the cat that bought the Back to the Future Nike's (aka The Marty McFly's) for over 35K last year. Yo don't wear them sh*ts in the hood bruh, you gonna really need a flying skateboard to get away.
British rapper Tinie Tempah has reportedly paid $37,500 in a charity auction for a pair of limited edition 2011 Nike Mag sneakers. The shoes, which are based on a design worn by Michael J. Fox's character Marty McFly in the 1989 movie Back to the Future Part II, have been produced in a run of 1500 pairs and are being sold 150 pairs at a time on eBay's Fashion Vault site.

SOHH Watcha Think -- Does a rapper's fashion sense influence how much you enjoy their music? Yo, before I roll out, I wanna leave you with Tyga's "Rack City" remix feat. Wale, Fabolous, Young Jeezy, Meek. Loso, T.I. and Meek did their thing on this joint. Enjoy.
