Timbaland Announces Final Album, Ludacris Gets Honored, Rick Ross Puts Wings Over Guns?

Working Wednesday. It’s a day filled with doing work, so why not get things started with Timbaland announcing his final album? Speaking of rappers nearing retirement, is Ludacris near the end of his career and being honored as a true contributor to the culture? Someone trying to contribute a positive element to the game is Rick Ross, weighing wings over guns? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Long Run

Is Timbaland getting ready to retire? Not quite. He’s had a great run in the music biz but it looks like he’s going to hang up the microphone on doing his own albums. Rolling Stone is on it:

What do you mean it’s your Purple Rain?
It’s my grand finale. It’s my voila. This is why you call me Timbaland. This is why you say I’m the greatest who ever did it.

Grand finale? That implies that it’s the last one.
It could be, for like me doing solo, because it’s not about me. It’s about my artists, so you know, I’m just being the teacher. The people that I birth, I want to help them shape their careers because they have longevity. Mine, I’m at a stage where I want to enjoy my wife, I want to enjoy my family a little bit more. I just want to enjoy life. I worked so hard to get to this point that I haven’t really sat down to enjoy life the way I should enjoy it.

It ain’t spending money, it’s just simpleness of life, and I just want to get back to it. Like, when I was a kid going to high school dating a girl, you know? Treating life like we just had each other. When you’re in this music world, it’s hard to do that. So I’ll probably take a break. (Rolling Stone)

If you have time to spare, check out the Rolling Stone interview. Timbaland dishes out some great gems. Would Timbaland ending his solo albums run be a good or bad thing? Could this give him more time to help other artists? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Stand Up

Can we call Ludacris a hip-hop mogul? It sounds like a joke when you initially think about it but when you really look at everything he’s accomplished, from music to movies, is it too crazy to imagine? News Net 5 has info on his newest accomplishment:

Rapper LUDACRIS will be honored with the President’s Award at the Broadcast Music, Inc. R&B/Hip-Hop Awards in Los Angeles next month (Aug13).

The Area Codes hitmaker will be feted in recognition of his achievements in songwriting and his global influence over the past 16 years of his career.

Announcing the news, BMI Vice President Catherine Brewton says, “We are proud to be honoring Ludacris with our President’s Award. He is a hometown hero to the city of Atlanta, who has had a remarkable career in music, film and television.

“His consistency in the industry, as well as his outreach in the community proves he is more than deserving of the BMI President’s Award.” (News Net 5)

Is Ludacris going to go down as one of hip-hop’s best artists outside of just rapping? Is he a role model? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Wing Or Die

How focused is Rick Ross on making positive contributions to the world? Or at least to the local community? The “Bawse” is sending a message everyone should appreciate it. Radio has the scoop:

Rick Ross wants you to enjoy the wings at the Dallas-based chicken chain, Wingstop, which he bought back in April. But preferably without a gun by your side.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Ricky Rozay spoke out about bringing firearms into public places like restaurants saying, “I support the right to bear arms, I do. I’m a licensed carrier.” But, “When I go into public places, when I go out and I enter certain places, I believe it’s best to leave your firearm in your vehicle. Go in and enjoy your meal.”

Ross’ opinions on the topic may have something to do with the events in March of 2013 when he was ambushed by gunmen who shot at his Rolls-Royce in Florida. In March 2013, Ross was ambushed by gunmen who shot at his Rolls Royce on a Florida street. It was reported that Ross was carrying a 9 mm handgun with 12 live rounds at the time of the drive by shooting. (Radio)

Could Rick Ross’ message be heard? Will things change? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

Amber Rose Undresses Her Twerk Skills, DMX Screams For Mercy, KimYe Pregnancy On Hold?

Turnt Up Tuesday. It’s a day to get turnt up so why not start things off with Amber Rose talking about twerking? Even though there’s no twerking involved with DMX, seeing him scream for dear life is a bunch of entertainment by itself. A couple allegedly screaming these days is Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Is a second pregnancy on hold? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. The Art of Twerk

Who is the best twerker alive? Could it really be Amber Rose? She recently talked about her own skills and why she plopped down on Wiz Khalifa for their special wedding day. Hello Beautiful is up on it:

Remember that really sexy Instagram video of Amber Rose twerking in what appeared to her wedding dress? Well, we caught up with the “School Dance” actress and guess what?! False alarm.
Amber Rose is known for her killer curves (and platinum blonde fade) yet some fans were shocked when the Muva Rose Bud did something as daring as twerk in her wedding dress. But Amb says, “That twerk video was not in my wedding dress. That was like a rehearsal dinner that we had before the wedding and it just happened to be white. My wedding dress was way more banging than that.”
And, despite what you may be thinking Wiz Khalifa did not care. “He knows I love him to death. He knows I like to have fun. He knows I’m a bit obnoxious sometimes and that’s who he married.” (Hello Beautiful)

Does this change your opinion of Amber Rose? Can you look past the curves and see how special of a woman she really is? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Bring It

Is DMX the toughest rapper in the game? You wouldn’t think so after seeing him scream for dear mercy in Florida not too long ago. There’s some pretty funny footage floating online that you’ve gotta peep. TMZ has the clip:

DMX lost his damn mind riding the Sling Shot in Orlando … and thank the lord someone had the good sense to record the whole thing.

X had our editors working overtime to bleep all the expletives he was hurling out … and that was before the ride even started! Once X got shot up in the air … all bets were off.

The video is amazing on so many levels, but perhaps the best part … it’s the rare clip of DMX that doesn’t end with him in handcuffs. (TMZ)

Should DMX give up the rapping and really consider being a full-time actor? His antics are pretty funny, no? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. KimYe Drama Continues

Is the media obsessed with the KimYe story? It seems it’s either what’s happening in Jay Z and Beyoncé’s marriage or the KimYe show. Could this all be gossip at the end of the day? RumorFix has the latest chapter:

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s plans to have a second child have been put on hold, according to Radar Online.

The gossip blog insists Kanye is “resisting because he is going to be going on a world wide tour after the release of his upcoming album,” also adding that “”The couple doesn’t even have their own house to live in! It’s just too much chaos for Kanye to handle.”

Sources close to the couple continue to tell that site that the dup have “constant fight” over their differences in lifestyle choices. “Kanye can’t understand Kim’s love of just lounging around for days at a time.”

“By all appearances, Kim looks like she has it all – a perfect husband, and a beautiful daughter – but the light and joy in her eyes is gone,” an insider continues to spill.
But Kimmy “is absolutely determined to get pregnant.” “Kanye can never say to no to her in the bedroom,” an insider claims. “Their sex life is over the top, and Kim is boasting it’s only a matter of time until she is pregnant again, so stay tuned!” (RumorFix)

Will everything die down? Are KimYe paying attention to all of this? Are we seeing the end of Kanye and Kim already? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

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

Chris Brown Likes Rihanna, Cash Money Hottie’s New Side Piece, KimYe Problems Already?

Moving Monday. We’re moving all over the place, so why not get things started with Chris Brown liking Rihanna all over again? Speaking of liking, does a certain Cash Money princess like a new side piece? Former side pieces-turned-married couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are together but are there real problems in paradise? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

[Editor's Note: The views expressed in this column do not necessarily reflect those of SOHH]

1. Like, Like

Is there any chance we’re going to see Chris Brown and Rihanna romantically hooking up again? Probably not but that doesn’t slow down the media and gossip reports after Chris appeared to like something of Rihanna’s. Bossip is on it:

Remember when we told you that Rihanna may or may not be plotting a Breezy reunion (again) now that he and Krunchy Karrueche are on the rocks????

Well it looks like she might not be the only one having a moment of nostalgia…

Over the weekend a Chrihanna fan made an edited photo of Breezy and his Bajan banger looking blissful in bed.

Chris apparently saw the photo and was pleased, so he gave it a little “like” action. (Bossip)

Are Rihanna and Chris up to something? Is this a recipe for disaster? Will something really go down now? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Cash Money Shot

Is Paris Hilton still signed to Cash Money Records? She probably has no money problems either way but she definitely has some love in the air this summer. RumorFix has the shot:

Paris Hilton had a heavy make-out session with a mystery man on the beach in Malibu on Sunday.

The socialite, who was thought to still be in a relationship with model River Viiperi, pretty much confirmed that is no longer the case with this overzealous public display of affection.

The 33-year-old frolicked in the ocean and took in some boogie boarding with her new beau while showing off her beach bod in a brown crocheted monokini.

What do you think of Paris’ new man? (RumorFix)

So does this mean Paris Hilton is ‘not’ working on her Cash Money Records debut or could she be juggling two things at once? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Uh-Oh

Could KimYe already be in trouble? They have been seen together on numerous occasions and everything suggests they are living the life. But is it all fake? RadarOnline is on it:

According to the U.K.’s Sun, the rapper, 37- who will continue traveling the country on his 53-date Yeezus tour through August- will drop an album overnight, much like how Beyonce released her self-titled fifth record without any prior promotion last December.

“Kanye has been working hard on the album for a lot of this year, but he’s known for cutting deadlines so it’s better if he can just put it out at the last minute,” a source tells the newspaper. (Radar Online)

Could things get better? Is Kanye just in work mode? Any chance this is just some bad gossip? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

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

Ludacris & Eudoxie’s First Baby Bump, James Harden Smashing Joe Budden’s Ex-Wifey, Diddy Responsible For French & Khloé?

Freaking Friday. It’s a day full of freaky-ness, so why not get things started with Ludacris and Eudoxie having a baby on the way? Speaking of babies, is Joe Budden‘s ex-baby girl messing with NBA superstar James Harden? With couples still on your mind, is Diddy responsible for putting Khloé Kardashian and French Montana? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Baby Love

Is Ludacris ready to have another baby? After his daughter being born a few months ago quietly with an alleged side piece, it looks like his real girl Eudoxie is sporting a baby bump? Bossip has the info:

ATL rapper Ludacris and his lady love Eudoxie have been laying pretty low this year after the “break baby” drama that followed them into 2014, but is there something else that their keeping under wraps?

Eudoxie, who is known for her curvaceously fit body, posted a photo recently that got more than a few folks thinking that she and Luda might be headed for parenthood for the first time together.

Hmmmm. It definitely looks like there could be some baby bumpin’ going on judging from this photo, riiiigght? But Eudoxie didn’t let the confusion linger for long. Hit the flip to see her response to the million dollar question of whether or not she’s got a lil Luda bun in her oven. (Bossip)

Is Ludacris expecting a new baby? Will this couple finally take the next step in their journey of life? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Love & Basketball

Can you see Tahiry and James Harden really dating? He’s been known to love the ladies, especially the vixen but is he really going the full mile with Tahiry? Bossip is once again on it:

Does your baller-bae get your passport stamped up like James Harden? Baller Alert is reporting reality star and model Tahiry was spotted alongside Houston Rockets star James Harden in Asia this week, specifically in China where the two took pics at The Great Wall and thought no one would notice. (Bossip)

Could this be a case of more than friends? Are these two just having a good time? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Take That, Take That

Who is responsible for putting French Montana and Khloé Kardashian? According to them, it’s the man responsible for inventing the remix. XXL Mag has the skinny:

One of hip-hop’s hottest couples spoke about their relationship for the first time. French Montana and Khloe Kardashian visited Angie Martinez at Power 105.1 and they discussed their relationship. How did they French and Khloe get together? “It was Puff,” says French. “Puff was the one that put us together. I was like Puff—I forgot how it went. It was me, Gabby, Ross, Puff, Meek. Everybody was in the studio. Scott [Disick, Kourtney’s husband] was there. Scott was drunk. I was, ‘I got a party tomorrow’ and everybody was like, ‘we all coming.’ She [Khloe Kardashian] was like ‘Hell yeah, I wanna go.’ Next day Puff was like ‘hit her’ to come to the party. We end up not going to the party. We just end up chillin’. But nah, she cool peoples. We rockin’.” (XXL Mag)

Is Diddy the new match-maker? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

Nicki Minaj Makes Guys Drool, Sweat & Moan In Her G-String

Thirsty Thursday. It’s a day filled with thirst so why not begin and end the day with Nicki Minaj being azz-tastic in a g-string? All this, really, coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. That’s All She Wrote

It’s very rare to have an entire day of gossip boil down to one particular item but when you look at what Nicki Minaj did. Well, RumorFix has the shot:

Oh-la-la!

Nicki Minaj is going bottoms up to promote her new hit single “Anaconda.”

The singer took to her social media to debut the front cover art for the song, which hits iTunes on Monday. The G-string clad star is seen with her legs wide open taking a squat while peering over her left shoulder in a very seductive fashion. (RumorFix)

Is there any denying Nicki Minaj is the hottest in the game? Could this have been a reminder to everyone still stuck over Iggy Azalea and thinking she might be running it for the females? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. Seriously. Could you handle any more? This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
