Finally Friday. It took some hard work this week but we've finally made it to Friday and what better way to celebrate than finding out Jay-Z's real age? Uh-oh. Speaking of finding out, it seems Rihanna didn't react to kindly when she found out how Chris Brown dumped her. Woman scorned? Speaking of women, did Lil Scrappy really have to go off on his fiancée? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Numbers Don't Lie

How old is Jay-Z? Cam'ron's called him 5-10 years older than he was during their beef and even Nas called him an old man when they were going at each other, but could everyone be wrong, even Wikipedia? Either Jay-Z has found the fountain of youth or there's an unknown relative no one knows about. New York Daily News has more:


Maybe Jay-Z was so interested in working on "The Great Gatsby" because he was around when the story was written. Ok, not likely. But how else can he explain this photo? A black-and-white snap taken in 1933 shows a man sitting on a gate in Harlem, and he bears striking resemblance to the famous rapper. Jay-Z, 43, probably isn't a time traveler, but the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture unearthed the photograph, calling attention to the mystery man sporting a newsboy hat and relaxed, suited demeanor. Initially pointed out by Buzzfeed, the man in the photo isn't too far off from the suave music mogul's style today. (New York Daily News)

Could this all be a case of Photoshopping applied to perfection, is Jay-Z really a time traveler or immortal, could he have a relative he didn't even know about? There's a lot to ponder here. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. No Cake For You

Chris Brown may have seemed pretty macho, announcing his break-up with Rihanna but did she get the last laugh? Probably not, but Rihanna definitely made sure to let her emotions out, especially in the manner that Chris announced the break-up. Chicago Sun Times is all over this:


While Rihanna and Chris Brown have made their latest breakup very public with dueling tweets, I've also learned that RiRi used a more old-fashioned approach to express her outrage at Brown: She picked up the phone and called him. A source close to Rihanna told this column Thursday, "She really blasted him, using language that made it sound like she never will get back with him again -- no matter what people think." The singer was especially infuriated by Brown's comment in an interview that he wasn't ready to be "wife-ing" someone as young as Rihanna. "She really thought that was a sexist, degrading thing for him to say," added the source, "Especially after all Rihanna endured after he beat her and all that." Though the ex-couple were both in New York the past few days, they never connected in person. As for Twitter, here's Rihanna's key one: "Settling is not an option! Nothing less than 100% loyalty, honesty, and respect!! Love ain't for kidz." (Chicago Sun Times)

Is there any chance Rihanna and Chris could get back together? Was all of this planned out, maybe even a publicity stunt or are they really done with one another? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Don't Start No Scrap Won't Be No Scrap

Is Lil Scrappy directing his anger at the wrong people? It was just a couple weeks ago when he was locked up in jail and Erica Dixon, along with his mom, were right by his side as he turned himself in. Well now it looks like Scrappy is one upset pup. Bossip has the scoop:


We recently reported on Momma Dee and Erica's fight on Twitter. The angry birds got into a heated fight over the love of Southern struggle rapper Scrappy. Erica has accused her baby daddy of being a deadbeat and failing to bring home the bacon through his non-existent rap career. Looks like the ring don't really mean a damn thing! (Bossip)

At the very least, Scrappy did not single Erica out although you can use your own assumptions and connect the dots. Hopefully they can iron things out and keep it moving. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

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