Video: Da Brat Interview w/ The Hot Boyz on Power 92

Tone & Shag b.k.a. The Hot Boyz were able to snag one of the first interviews with a post-jail Da Brat.  She’s still on house arrest for the time being, and has some other requirements to fulfill before she’s all the way free, but she appears to be in good spirits and ready to work.  She has a book in the works, and hopes to return home to Chicago for some Harold’s and dipped Italian beef in the near future.

Lupe’s Lasers Hits #1, Moves 204k Copies

The numbers are in, and it’s official – Lupe’s Lasers has reached #1 on the charts, with over 204k copies sold.  Now, Hits Daily Double will probably be off by a few (give or take), but this is essentially the official number.  Lupe’s previous efforts Food & Liquor debuted at number 8 on the charts, with The Cool landing at number 14, making Lasers Lupe’s FIRST number one album on the US Billboard charts.  Salute that man.
