Video: Chip Tha Ripper Talks ‘Gift Raps’ With Chuck Inglish

| May 24, 2010 | 7 Comments

You can now officially dead any speculation; the Chuck & Chip collaboration project Gift Raps is happening.   And it will be coming out sooner than you think.

Last week, Chuck tweeted that he and Chip had recorded the whole album in a 6 day span, and it sounded like “the future coming out of the trunk”.  After Chuck’s claim, I was curious to hear what they’d created, because when Chuck makes statements such as these, he backs it up in spades.   Dead serious.

Mr. Inglish and Kev from SLAB ENT (the company that handles all of Chip’s biz) insisted that I drop by The Blender (their Chicago recording heaquarters and homebase of the Blended Babies) to hear the goods, so of course I obliged.

Kanye West & Amber Rose’s Seven Figure Agreement?

| May 23, 2010 | 18 Comments

Celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton is reporting that Kanye has paid ex-girlfriend Amber Rose up to seven figures to keep her mouth shut and from revealing any details about their now-defunct relationship.  Talk about hitting the ultimate lick.  I’ve never so much as heard Amber speak and she’s become (somewhat) famous and now (supposedly) rich.  

Sources are saying that Kanye West has signed a multi-million dollar contract with ex-girlfriend Amber Rose to “silence” her from speaking about his personal life.

She reportedly agreed to never reveal any details about the rapper in return for cash.

An insider says, “It’s pretty common to have ‘silence’ agreements amongst entertainers. I heard that Amber’s getting seven figures to keep her lips closed.”
