Just from watching some of those reality shows she been on of late, you could tell that Da Brat had an attitude problem that would eventually catch up with her:
Rap star Shawntae Harris, better known as Da Brat, has been sentenced to three years in prison for hitting a hostess in the head with a rum bottle during an altercation at a suburban Atlanta nightclub last fall.
The 34-year-old Harris pleaded guilty today (Aug. 22) to aggravated assault in DeKalb County. She was sentenced to 10 years, to serve three, and must also complete 200 hours of community service, receive substance abuse treatment, undergo mental evaluation and attend anger management classes.
Authorities said Harris was at a private Halloween party at Studio 72, a club in Tucker, when she struck then-Atlanta Falcons cheerleader Shayla Stevens, who was working part-time as a hostess for the event.

Talk about memorable characters. Just found out that Julius Carry III who played Sho'Nuff in the '80s classic "The Last Dragon" passed away on Tuesday. There's a tribute on his co-star Taimak's official MySpace page. R.I.P. to the baddest.
This is what you get for siding with Cam'Ron:
It seems hip-hop mogul Damon Dash may be an entrepreneur, but he's certainly not in the business of paying the bills. The NY Post is now reporting that the Eastern Savings Bank has filed suit against him, "charging the Roc-a-Fella Records co-founder hasn't made a payment on his $78,504.20-a-month mortgage since January."
The $7.3M mortgage is split between two properties, at both 25 N. Moore Street and 79 Laight Street, and Dash and his wife (Rachel Roy) have been warned in writing that they are in danger of losing both. The Daily News adds that the suit "cites numerous judgments against Dash in which he was ordered to pay more than $2 million in New York state taxes, more than $100,000 in federal taxes and $95,000 in unpaid rent to the landlord of the W.39th St. building that houses Damon Dash Enterprises." Last year he "sued his accountant for allegedly costing him millions of dollars by filing faulty tax returns."

This could be the greatest invention since the remote control. Seriously.
CITRUS COUNTY -- It’s happened to all of us.
"I decided to go wash up, walked into a bathroom and somebody literally annihilated the bathroom," said inventor Robert smith.
But unlike most of us, Smith did more than hold his breath. He spent several years, countless hours and thousands of dollars to invent the odorless toilet.
"When you believe in something, you've got to give it your all," said Smith
The VIP odorless toilet installs the same as most standard toilets. Smith’s patented odor removal system fits in the back of the toilet and operates on 12 volts.
Before number two, you lift the handle up. That activates a small fan that through several holes in the bowl begins to suck the stink. The fan shuts off when you flush.
Smith said you don’t have to worry about germs or bacteria because they’re sucked down with the gas.

I'm just shocked at this news and damn he was only 50! I still remember seeing "The Original Kings of Comedy" for the first time in the theater and literally crying from laughing so hard during Bernie's act. He'll be missed by many.

Includes the Benjamin Bixby Oxford Button-Collar Shirt (form his new clothesline). What can you say, the man's got style (like you didn't know that already). Now if only he and Big Boi can get together to drop an Outkast, a real one, not two solos glued together.

SPIN does an investigation on what the fuck ever happened to D'Angelo (basically booze & the over-the-top reaction to the infamous "How Does It Feel" vid are the blame), who hasn't release an LP in like 8 years. Nice feature, but my only question is: shouldn't VIBE be doing this kind of stuff instead of a mostly rock-n-roll rag like SPIN?
