Looks like anyone who copped an iPhone can benefit from Allhiphop.com’s iTunes promo. A pretty decent playlist that’s being given away for free, no fee.

After mackin her Maserati on Hollywood Boulevard, looks like Evie Eve has to rock the state-issued jewelry….an alcohol-detecting ankle bracelet

Who knew LRG was created by a couple of dudes from O.C. , but according to this article, looks like it’ll take more than Kanye’s support to keep the hypebeasts purchasing their gear.

Presidential hopeful, Brack Obama, aka “Mr. $32.5 Million ” talked to New York’s Hot 97 about being a fan of the Jigga man.

bgdboom has up a Little Brother concert review and Solange Knowles Birthday Party.
