Rick Ross Announces New Album and Single
This week Rozay made his press run to debut his new single featuring “Sorry” featuring Chris Brown. But he brought another surprise with him, a couple more actually:
Ross announced that his unexpected album ‘Black Market’ will release in December and he even had an album cover ready.
Except his second surprise may have even topped that. Ross brought Lira Galore to each of his interviews with The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 and Hot 97. In his interview the Power 105.1 crew, he speaks on his feud with 50 Cent, his thoughts on the Drake vs. Meek battle, and his legal situation.
He’s currently out on $2 million bail and is on home confinement but his vast estate with the 40 room mansion doesn’t look like much of a punishment.
Matt Barnes and Derek Fisher Fight at Barnes Ex-Wife LA Party
Matt Barnes recently spoke to ESPN on the reported incident between himself and Derek Fisher.
Originally, the story reported that Barnes drove 95 miles to his ex-wife’s home, Gloria Govan, to confront Fisher during Govan’s house party in Los Angeles. Fisher is said to be dating Govan for some months now.
Barnes told ESPN that he was at his LA home during the time of the incident so he took the 15 minute drive to check in on his children who were over Govan’s home.
"I can't believe people think I was some maniac driving 95 miles and listening to Tupac to go beat somebody up," Barnes said. "No. I live 15 minutes away and I was going over to check on my kids because they seemed uncomfortable. That was my main reason for going over there."
Fisher hasn’t commented on the story but you can read the full update here.
