After successfully dominating the music industry, YMCMB rapper Lil Wayne is now putting some focus inside his upcoming “Rebirth” clothing line. The name was taken from Weezy’s 2010 album. Weezy told XXL magazine in their July/August 2011 issue he wants to jump into the fashion business:

I just figure that I… I’m funky,” he explained. “I got that from my stylist, Marisa. I’m funky, like she say. I wear a whole buncha items at one time, you know what I mean? I be figuring you at least want one of them items. Like, ‘Damn, I’d love to have that safety pin he got on,’ you know what I mean? Anything. I got on these types of shoes, these shorts, this sweater… A year from now, I want all these items to be mine. Rebirth. I want—I just figure people want to be funky like me, so I got my clothing line.”

Sneaker Me Dope: Tyga Wearing Air Jordan 3 “Black/Cements”

YMCMB rapper Tyga was recently co-hosting BET’s “106 & Park” with Rocsi. On the set, Tyga was wearing a pair of Air Jordan 3 “Black/Cement.” These sneakers were originally released back in 1988. The Compton native will be releasing his new album Careless World this Fall. I respect what Tyga is doing for the new generation of Hip-Hop. Just like myself, Tyga represents the youth. He’s also doing a great job at branding himself. So far this year, Tyga has been on two tours. Later this Fall, he will be joining Kelly Rowland on Chris Brown’s upcoming tour.

Climbing Up The Success Ladder: Ethiopia Habtemariam Named To Head Universal Motown Records

According to TheWrap.com, Ethiopia Habtemariam was recently named to head Universal Motown Records. In the early 90’s Habtemariam started out as an intern at LaFace Records. Ethiopia is also Senior Vice President of Creative for Universal Music Publishing, where she was instrumental in signing such artists as Justin Beiber, Ciara, Polow Da Don, Chris Brown and Ludacris to publishing deals.

The ultimate goal is to get the labels working again.” She “strongly believed Motown should be youth-driven,” an individual close to the Habtemariam told TheWrap. “It’s all about youth. They’re the ones who open the doors.”

I’ve never met Habtemariam but a couple of people I associate with in the industry told me that she’s one of the kindest, sweetest people you could ever meet in the music industry.

Congrats Habtemariam from Don Bleek, Dollah Tha Rapper, Shakiel F., Rich Rosay and the entire YDBR & DG family.

What’s Beef? The Real Reason Why Lil Kim & Foxy Brown Grew To HATE Each Other With Interviews From Members Of Both Camps

In the June/July issue of Vibe magazine, the publication did an entire spread on Lil Kim, titled “Diary Of Kimberly Jones”. In the spread, Vibe spoke to some of Kim’s friends and former business partners as they gave an in-depth story about Kim’s career, how Kim met Biggie and how hurt she was when he was murdered, working on her debut album Hardcore, and they even talked about an altercation Kim had with Biggie’s ex-wife Faith Evans; which resulted in Kim pulling out a gun and threatening to blow Faith brains out. They also talked about Kim’s beef with Foxy Brown and how it all started. Below is the story on the Kim and Foxy beef. Tomorrow I will post more excerpts. Read the breakdown of the Kim and Foxy beef below:

As Kim’s star status grew, she had to share the spotlight with another female rapper, Inga “Foxy Brown” Marchand, whose debut album, Ill Na Na, dropped that same month.

Gavin Marchand (Foxy Brown’s brother): Kim and Foxy knew each other from Tasha [Smith], a mutual friend that lived on our block. Then they ended up in the same high school, Brooklyn College Academy. They were cool. But it wasn’t a sleep-over-your-house-type relationship.

Smith: [Foxy] was one of the leaders. The pack always followed her, and you always heard her mouth way down the block.

Rivera: They used to record demos in the same neighborhood studio, Daddy-O.

Daddy-O: Inga was the better rapper. But there was no question that Kim was more furious about her craft. I had to stop working with Inga because I watched her curse her mother out in her basement. Kim was never like that… I might play a song that I was working on with Inga to Kim. But Foxy was always interested in what Kim was doing. Kim was never interested in what Foxy was doing.

Shaka Don: Foxy used to call Kim all the time. And then she would [turn around and] dog Kim out to people. Kim finally told me to call [Foxy] and tell her to stop calling her phone. It seemed like everything Kim would do, Foxy would do it right after. Kim bought a Land Rover. Foxy bought a Land Rover in the same color. Kim colored her hair. Foxy got the same color.
