Rick Ross And Foxy Brown To Announce Engagement?



According to weekly print publication Hip-Hop Weekly , Rick Ross and Foxy Brown 's romantic relationship is not the publicity stunt that many skeptics wagered. Or, if it is, the Brooklyn/Miami couple is taking things a bit further.
The issue cover story alleges that Foxy has vacated her northern New Jersey home to live with the recent rap superstar in his Miami mansion. The highlight of the "exclusive report" is speculation that the couple will announce their secret engagement to the public during tomorrow's (June 24) airing of the BET Awards .
Both artists have released albums this year. Ross ' Trilla remained the top-selling Hip Hop album prior to Lil Wayne 's release of Tha Carter III . Foxy 's Brooklyn's Don Diva has not fared as well on the charts or in critical response. Already, Brown admitted displeasure with her label and then-management over the project.

Shaq Takes Aim At Kobe (Again)



Phoenix Suns center, Shaquille O’Neal spit a freestyle in a New York nightclub that was aimed at former teammate Kobe Bryant .

Taped alongside Corey Gunz , Shaq rhymes lines like “You know how I be. Last week Kobe couldn’t do without me.” and a crowd joining chant of “ Kobe , tell me how my ass tastes.” That   can be seen in a video courtesy of TMZ.com .

The 2007-2008 MVP took his Los Angeles Lakers to the NBA Finals , only to lose 4-2 to the Boston Celtics.

Shaq also takes claim that Kobe Bryant is the reason his divorce came to surface as Kobe alleged that O’Neal paid up to $1 million to a women to keep quiet during his 2004 rape investigation.

“That’s why I’m getting divorced. He said Shaq gave a bitch a mil. I don’t do that cause my name is Shaquille . I love 'em. I don’t leave 'em. I got a vasectomy, now I can’t breed 'em.”

Shaq later reached out to ESPN 's Stephen A. Smith today (Monday) and issued the following statement, saying the freestyle was " done in fun. "

"I was freestyling. That's all. It was all done in fun. Nothing serious whatsoever. That is what emcees do. They freestyle when called upon. I'm totally cool with Kobe . No issue at all. And by the way, don't forget, six albums, two platinum, two gold. Anybody who knows me knows I'm a funny freestyler. Check the NBA DVD when I was wrapping about Vlade Divac during my first championship run. Please tell everybody don't make something out of nothing."
