WORD ON THE CURB…

MISSY ELLIOTT WAS RECENTLY SELECTED FOR THE 2019 SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME, A FIRST FOR THE FEMALE RAPPERS WHO HAVE COME BEFORE HER. TO QUALIFY AND TO BE INDUCTED A SONGWRITER OR PERFORMER MUST HAVE WRITTEN HIT SONGS FOR AT LEAST 20 YEARS; ELLIOTT, WHO ARRIVED IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY WITH HITMAKER TIMBALAND, RELEASED HER FIRST STUDIO ALBUM “SUPA DUPA FLY,” WHICH DEBUTED AT NO. 3 ON THE BILLBOARD HOT 200 CHARTS, IN 1997, AND HAS SINCE WRITTEN HITS FOR WHITNEY HOUSTON, NICOLE WRAY, SWV, AND BEYONCÉ. JOINING HER ON THE LIST OF NOMINEES INCLUDE “GTFO” SINGER MARIAH CAREY, AND WRITER DALLAS AUSTIN, WHO’S WRITTEN FOR BOYZ II MEN, MONICA, AND TLC. AFTER VOTES ARE TALLIED, SIX SONGWRITERS WILL BE OFFICIALLY INDUCTED AT HALL’S 50TH ANNUAL INDUCTION & AWARDS GALA IN NEW YORK ON JUNE 13, 2019. IF INDUCTED, ELLIOTT WILL FOLLOW BEHIND THE TALENTS OF JAY-Z AND JERMAINE DUPRI.

SNOOP DOGG IS OFFICIALLY TELLING HIS LIFE STORY! THE 47-YEAR-OLD RAPPER, ACTOR AND PRODUCER are REPORTEDLY PREPPING A BIOPIC. DURING AN INTERVIEW SNOOP SHARES THAT THE PROJECT IS IN THE DEVELOPMENT PHASES, BUT DIRECTOR RYAN COOGLER AND PRODUCER/DIRECTOR LEE DANIELS ARE REPORTEDLY INVOLVED. SNOOP IS THE LATEST A-LISTER TO HAVE HIS LIFE STORY TOLD ON SCREEN. THE HIT FILM STRAIGHT OUT OF COMPTON SPARKED A PLETHORA OF INTEREST IN NEW BIOPICS. NO FURTHER DETAILS ABOUT THE BIOPIC HAVE BEEN RELEASED. IN OTHER NEWS, SNOOP IS CURRENTLY STARRING IN HIS STAGE PLAY, REDEMPTION OF A DOG.

 

AS WE CONTINUE TO KEEP ANGELA SIMMONS AND HER FAMILY LIFTED IN PRAYER DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME, THERE ARE NOW REPORTS THAT THE MAN SUSPECTED OF FATALLY SHOOTING ANGELA’S EX-FIANCE, SUTTON TENNYSON, HAS TURNED HIMSELF IN. A LAWYER FOR THE MAN, IDENTIFIED AS MICHAEL WILLIAMS, THAT HE TURNED HIMSELF INTO THE ATLANTA POLICE DEPARTMENT ON WEDNESDAY. WILLIAMS IS BEING CHARGED WITH MURDER. HIS ATTORNEY SAYS HIS CLIENT DENIES THE ALLEGATIONS THAT HE FATALLY SHOT SUTTON. IT’S UNCLEAR AT THIS TIME THE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN THE TWO MEN.

IF YOU’RE CELEBRATING A BIRTHDAY YOU’RE IN GOOD COMPANY:

  • SZA – 28
  • ERICA MENA – 31
  • KHIA – 41
