Radio Queen Angie Martinez Leaves HOT97 For Rival Station! Listen To Her Last Show Here...

What can we say? For a lot of us, we grew up with her. She is the "Voice of New York" --  QUEEN of Hip-Hop radio -- and no one can ever take her place. But now Angie Martinez's home for the last 25 years, has to look for a new person to attempt to fill her shoes. Angie made the shocking announcement this week that she is leaving NYC's HOT97/ Emmis Comunications, having her last show on Wednesday, June 18th 2014. 


For those who did not hear the live announcement, she explained on her social networks:
Today I resigned from HOT97. I am grateful to the Emmis family for my time with the company and the immeasurable way that it has shaped my life. We made history together in so many ways and I will cherish those memories and my friendships forever. This was one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to make but ultimately it is time to move on, to grow and to be challenged in new ways. Saying goodbye is always emotional and bitter sweet but I am extremely excited about the future. Thank you HOT97 and most importantly….the listeners… for an unimaginable journey. Today will be my last show ❤️ stay tuned…. Love, angie
Angie added,
Life has to move forward. Everything has its time and everything ends.
Just a day later, the world got the confirmation that Ang is not only leaving her home team for over 20 years, she has moved up a few dials to their rival station Power 105.1! If you have been following these two rival stations, this is big. The radio game has been shooken up.

Now that Angie is with Clear Channel communications she is not only with Power105.1 but she has also joined Miami's WMIB (103.5 FM), known as “The Beat.” Emmis, who is independently owned, gave Angie one show Mon- Fri. Clear Channel though operates more than 800 stations in the United States, more than any other broadcaster, so we assume Ang needed to spread her wings and get her syndication on, as she should!


Ms. Martinez’s departure is one of several recent changes at Hot 97. In March, Ebro Darden, the station’s program director, stepped down from that role but continued as the station’s morning host. Later that month, VH1 began broadcasting a reality show about the station, “This is Hot 97.”


For Angie's last show, she kept it all about her HOT97 family and her listeners... no big slew of celebs in the building. To us that means she will be digging into her 25 year plus celeb contact list and bringing out the big guns for her first new show. Can't wait to see what happens...

Word is, Angie's new show will start sometime in July. 


Congrats Ang, we will be looking for you!

HOT NEW MUSIC VIDEO: International Duo, Nico & Vinz "Am I Wrong"

When we first heard this song, we loved it right off the bat and thought two things, how inspiring and who the heck is this!?? We then began to vision our own view of the person we thought who sung it.... but got a refreshing surprise when we found out it was an African/ Norwegian duo! So we had to put you guys on.

If you haven't heard yet, the Norwegian duo's debut chart entry, "Am I Wrong," leapfrogged into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 dated June 7, just its sixth week on the tally. It seems as if this group has came out of nowhere, blowing up the scene, but these guys have been pushing this song itself since 2012, in their home country. They used to go by the name "Envy," but since crossing over to the United States they have decided to go with "Nico & Vinz."

"We always knew it was possible to reach outside of Norway with our music," 

says Nico Sereba.

Check out their song and official video for "Am I Wrong" below:

JR WRITER DISSES DIPSET & MORE IN JAIL FREESTYLE!! + WATCH OUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW!

The well-known rap group Dipset has been resurrecting lately --- with Cam'ron working on a new web music series --- and seems that group member JR Writer, who is currently incarcerated, is feeling a certain type of way about it!



JR has been working hard on HIS new mixtape, "I'm Done Talking,".... but JR's mixtape is from his jail cell.... and it appears that he is FAR from done talking. A phone recorded freestyle leaked this week of JR going off on his former Dipset camp, including Cam'ron and Dame Dash.

A few years back we spoke with JR about his affiliations with Dipset, being that they have not recorded as a group in a long time, and JR made it CLEAR as day.... he will forever be Dipset!

There was also rumors that JR was writing a lot of Dipset's stuff back in the day, hence the name "Writer."

Our girl, Dj Lady T went in for the kill..... was he Dipset's Ghost Writer???? JR answers that himself!

Listen to the freestyle and watch our exclusive interviews below:

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Beyonce's Sister, Solange, Physically Attacks Jay-Z!



UPDATE 05/15/2014:

Jay Z, Solange, and Beyonce released the joint statement moments ago, saying,

 "Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."

The statement continues, 

"The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different."
"We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."



ORIGINAL REPORT:

Looks like Beyonce's sister, Solange Knowles, had a bit of a gripe to pick with her sister's husband, Jay-Z... she was beating the CRAP OUT OF HIM in an elevator. 

It's all caught on tape. According to our sources, it went down at a Met Gala after party last week at the Standard Hotel in NYC.  In the video ... Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange step into the elevator ... and then Solange goes crazy, screaming at Jay before unleashing a violent attack. 

Hov seems to be pushing her away... Beyonce barley moves.

Jay-Z and Beyonce are very secretive, so you know Jay has to be super pissed this got out... definitely some exclusive stuff here! 

So far no word on what triggered the fight... but can we get that audio though?


Seems like Solange may be protecting her older sister? New footage has surfaced which shows Solange looking pissed leaving the Met Gala, Beyonce following her into the car. Jay-Z says he wants to be in a different car. 

Watch the FULL version of the footage here:

Clippers Owner SPEAKS OUT!! After NBA LIFE Suspension & Racist Audio Leaked By Mistress!!


UPDATE 05/05/2014: Donald Sterling is on the hunt to hire a major L.A. law firm to sue the NBA for suspending him and attempting to strip him of ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers


ORIGINAL REPORT: 

This guy has everyone talking this week!! Donald Sterling, the owner of the NBA Clippers, had some racist audio leak by his mistress and now he is in HOT water!!

Mr. Sterling is heard on the audio, telling his Black and Mexican Girlfriend to not attend games or be seen with Black people...



"It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?" 
 "You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want.  The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games."
"...Don't put him [Magic Johnson] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me.  And don't bring him to my games."


After this audio leaked:

NBA Commish Adam Silver made an announcement... saying the NBA has BANNED Sterling for LIFE and also fined him $2.5 million.The NBA Commissioner insists,
"I will do everything in my power" to "force" Sterling to sell the Clippers... 
"I fully expect to get the support I need from the other NBA owners to remove him," 
As for the ban, Sterling will not be allowed to attend any NBA games or practices ever again ... and will not be permitted inside any team facilities. 

The $2.5 million fine will be donated to anti-discrimination and tolerance efforts. 

Silver says the ban will only pertain to Donald -- and not to his family members. 

During the news conference, Silver said he was "personally outraged" by Sterling's comments...

"The hateful opinions are those of Mr. Sterling.  The views expressed by Mr. Sterling are deeply offensive and harmful." 
NBA Hall of Famer, Magic Johnson -- who Sterling did not want seen with his GF because he is Black -- has tweeted that he is "very happy and satisfied" with Silver's decision. 

We hear that Magic is also in talks of BUYING THE TEAM! But Sterling isn't having it!

Since the ban:

We hear Sterling has actually spoken out and says he is NOT selling the Clippers. 

According to reports, Sterling told Fox News' Jim Gray the team was NOT for sale. Gray said on Fox News he spoke with Sterling just before NBA Commish Adam Silver banned Sterling for life but did not report it until after the conference. 

The NBA Commissioner does say if 3/4 of the NBA owners get on board they can force Sterling to sell the team.  If that happens it looks like Sterling may well go to legal war.

This is not the first time Donald Sterling has had racist remarks either. Sterling was sued by the Department of Justice  in 2006 for housing discrimination. Though Sterling has no problem paying black people millions of dollars to play basketball, the feds allege that he refused to rent apartments in Beverly Hills and Koreatown to Black people, Spanish people and people with children.

And did we mention Sterling's wife is also currently suing his Girlfriend, for all the gifts Sterling splurged on her. .. including a home and Ferrari. This is a big 'ol MESS.


MISSED IT?!! LISTEN TO THE AUDIO THAT HAS DONALD STERLING IN HOT WATER BELOW.

OMG! Woman Accidentally Gets Pregnant With Another Couple’s Twins

Picture this. You're having trouble conceiving. You start undergoing fertility treatments. You finally get pregnant! You're happy. You're elated. You're going to be a mom! But then three months into your pregnancy, you find out that you were implanted with the wrong embryos. Oh, and P.S., you're pregnant with twins.

 "Mix-up" is a word best left out of sentences involving another word: pregnancy. But the two are making headlines together following yesterday's report that a woman in Rome became pregnant with twins after undergoing fertility treatment -- except the embryos she was implanted with weren't those of her and her partner.

 The woman wasn't alerted to the issue until she was three months along. The AFP reports the switch somehow happened on Dec. 4 at the Sandro Pertini Hospital in Rome. Four couples received treatment that day, and it's unclear whether any other improper pregnancies resulted.

There's also no word on how the mix-up came to light, though Rome's health authority said it learned there was "genetic incompatibility" between the parents and embryos on March 27. The country's health ministry is now investigating, and no further implantations are being done at the clinic. 

 far from the first time this has happened: In 2009 an Ohio woman implanted with the wrong embryos gave birth to a baby boy then handed him over to his biological parents; a 2000 in-vitro mix-up saw a San Francisco woman implanted with another couple's embryos as well. The Chronicle reports that the doctor immediately realized his mistake but didn't reveal it; Susan Buchweitz learned of this mistake 10 months after birth after a whistleblower tipped off the Medical Board of California. The biological father of her son sued for custody, and was granted shared custody in 2005.

OMG!! JERMAINE JACKSON SAYS "THERE WOULD BE NO MJ IF IT WEREN'T FOR HIM!!???" (VIDEO)



Did he really just say that???
Jermaine Jackson is so infuriated that Debbie Rowe, the biological mother of two of Micheal Jackson's kids, wants full custody that he claims HIMSELF & HIS BROTHERS made Micheal Jackson's entire career! 

Therefore they should have custody? *looks around confused*

Here's the story, Debbie Rowe is waging a legal war to get guardianship of the 2 kids she had with Michael Jackson ... and if she could she'd gladly take all 3.





Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Rowe is deeply concerned about the environment in the Jackson home.  She likes Katherine Jackson but believes she has gotten way too old to serve as guardian ... 
"Katherine's not connected with the kids or involved in their lives" 

Rowe told a friend.
Debbie believes MJ's brothers oppose her plan to seek guardianship because they know if that happens a huge chunk of the money Katherine gets from the MJ Estate -- more than $50K in child support -- will dry up.
Michael's brothers came out swinging, saying Rowe took Michael's money and then ran away from her kids and her responsibilities.

Our sources say Debbie Rowe is pissed but not surprised at the attack, insisting she never abandoned her kids. She says Michael constantly called her for parenting advice and she was always there for him and the children.
She also says Michael often told her the only sibling with any talent was Janet, and the others turned sponging off him into an art form. Ouch.
THAT alone must have pissed Jermaine Jackson off... he has talent, doesn't he?
Well, Jermaine is now saying Michael owes his whole career to his older siblings.

Telling TMZ, 
"If it wasn't for the Jackson 5 there would be no Michael Jackson.... That's what gave him the launching pad to become what he became." 


Ummmm..... we believe his parents are the ones who made him, if we are not mistaken.
Jermaine and Micheal were only 4 years a part so most speculate jealously on his part... that he did not become the biggest entertainer in the world like his brother.
Anyhow, Jermaine suggests he doesn't need the Micheal or the estate's money because he made a fortune with the Jackson 5 on his own..... tell that to his baby mama who's been hunting him down for child support for years.

You HAVE to watch him in this video.. around 2:17 it gets shocking:


Debbie Rowe is saying she wants to move the kids to her ranch in Palmdale, where she has a successful horse breeding business.

We have a feeling MJ is rolling over time and time again in his grave. Who do you think should have guardianship of MJ's children?
