Tasty Tuesday. It's all about the finer tastes in life today and if there's one person that has a thing for the juicy, it's Rick Ross and his plans to announce a new LP title on New Year's Day. We might be guessing all day to figure out what it is, just like trying to figure out what's up with rap mogul Russell Simmons playing boy-toy to his current girlfriend and ex-wife Kimora Lee Simmons? Big ballin'? With all due respect, that's big pimpin', but nothing like Chris Brown stuck in the middle of Rihanna and Karrueche Tran fighting to the death for him. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Work, Work, Work

Rick Ross might be one of the hardest working artists in hip-hop right now, maybe right up there with Drake. If he's not on every song on the radio, he's making sure his artists Wale, Meek Mill and more are getting spins. But what would a New Year be without new music or at least a new album title from The Boss? All Hip Hop Rumors has more:


Miami Hip-Hop star Rick Ross has announced the date he will reveal the title of his next album. Rick Ross is currently putting the finishing touches on his sixth studio album, the follow-up to last year's Gold selling effort, God Forgives, I Don't. The rapper revealed that he will ring in the New Year, by releasing the name of his album title on January 1. (All Hip Hop Rumors)

This should be interesting to say the least. Ross has never really put out a wack album title when you think about it. Deeper Than Rap, Teflon Don, God Forgives, I Don't. Those all sound like titles from a Martin Scorsese-directed picture. How can Ross up the ante this time around? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Big Ballin' Is My Hobby

Russell Simmons is forever going to be known as the first hip-hop icon to have quite possibly the sexiest business-minded wife in Kimora Lee Simmons. It was sad to see things fizzle out in the mid-2000's between them, but it looks like they've still got a great relationship. Not every ex-husband can hit the beach with his sweet ol' thang and his current lil' thang latched on to him. TMZ has the proof:


Russell Simmons could teach Halle Berry a thing or two about breaking up. He's on such good terms with ex-wife Kimora Lee, he kicked it with her AND new GF Hana Nitsche Wednesday on the beach in St. Barths. Simmons and Kimora Lee divorced in 2009 ... but they stayed unusually and refreshingly close post-split ... sometimes vacationing together with their respective SOs. (TMZ)

Is Russell Simmons just one lucky guy? Considering the money he's paying Kimora Lee in child support for their two daughters, you would think that he'd be a bit more salty (no pun intended considering they're at the beach). #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Gladiators

Have you ever seen a once-hated guy get fought over by two gorgeous women as much as Chris Brown does? You would think he is Richie Rich the way he has these two women going to extreme measures just to be spotted with him. Rihanna and Karreuche Tran are proving there will be no stopping them until Chris has made up his mind. RumorFix has more:


Chris Brown's on-again off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran greeted her Instagram followers on Christmas morning with a picture of herself wearing a Chris Brown t-shirt with the caption: "Good morning." That photograph's online life was cut short after Brown was spotted being affectionate with ex-girlfriend Rihanna during Tuesday's Los Angeles Lakers game; just hours after sharing the snap, Tran deleted the image. Rihanna then tweeted out this image of herself and Brown, titling the flick: "Thug life." (RumorFix)

Shouldn't Chris just stop things right here and say enough is enough? On second thought, if you're getting this much free press and having two women fight over you having already stated you want both of them, is there any real reason he should pull the brakes on this hype? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
