Sneaker Me Dope: Rick Ross Rocking $415 Balenciaga Kicks

Rick Ross was spotted in Miami, on the set of Jennifer Hudson “Think Like A Man” video shoot. Rozay was wearing a pair of $415 multicolored Balenciaga Patchwork sneakers, which are from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection. These sneakers feature the mixing and matching of suede, canvas, premium leather, and textured leather. Balenciaga was founded in 1914 by Cristóbal Balenciaga, a Spanish designer, born in the Basque Country, Spain. The upscale brand is now owned by Gucci. The men line of Balenciaga sneakers are really dope. I am addicted to these kicks. Don’t forgot to download Rozay’s latest mixtape, entitled Rich Forever. God Forgives, I Don’t coming soon.

Movie Premiere In Hollywood: Celebs Hit Up The “Dysfunctional Friends” Screening

Last night Wednesday (February 1), the stars flew to Hollywood for the premiere of Corey Grants upcoming movie Dysfunctional Friends. This Indie film will include an all-star line up of actors including Stacey Dash, Meagan Good, Hosea Canchez, Tatyana Ali, Persia White and more. According to NecoleBITCHIE,the movie is about the sudden death of a man named Dennis, who leaves the worth of his million-dollar estate to his closest friends from college, if and only if they can stay together in his house for one week. The catch is that no one can leave or the will is void and nobody will get their share. NFL superstar Terrell Owens made his first big screen appearance in the movie playing a character that was not much of a stretch from his own. “Action Jackson” is a football player who is engaged to the beautiful Lisa (Stacey Dash) but is not ready to settle down just yet.  Reverend Run’s daughter Vanessa Simmons also made her first movie debut, playing a mistress named ‘Hanna.‘”

Celebrities such as Christian Keyes, Vanessa Simmons, Datari Turner, Essence Atkins, Letoya Luckett, and Reagan Gomez-Preston attended the movie premiere. Peep the pictures below:

Silly Willy Says: Don Bleek Interviews Miami’s Fashion Designer Kenny G

Growing up in South Florida, Kenny G always had a love for music and fashion. He turned his dreams into reality. Kenny G was apart of a Hip-Hop crew called “Get Some Crew,” which sold over one-million albums. In 2008, Kenny G launched SillyWillySays. Patrick Peterson, Michael German and MMA fighter Debo are just a few celebrities who were seen rocking tee shirts from the SillyWillySays collection. For the Spring/Summer 2012 collections, we can expect more affordable clothing with a quality look. All of SillyWillySays shirts are sold in recyclable cans. I recently interviewed Kenny G. We talked about his clothing line, inspirations and of course, the empire he is building. You can order some of SillyWillySays tee-shirts and hats online at SillyWillySays.com. Peep my interview with Kenny G below:

What inspired you to create a clothing line?

My love for fashion is the reason why I started  SillyWillySays.

What is the inspiration behind your clothing line?

Recycling, my love for the earth and saving trees.

How did you come up with the name of your clothing line and why did you chose to name your clothing line SillyWillySays?

I was promoting a party and needed a cool way to get the word out about my party. Since I’ve  always been in the entertainment business mostly as a rapper, I would come up with catchy hooks, so I kept repeating names that rhyme and SillyWillySays was cool and very ear catching.

How do you come up with the slogans for the shirts?

Most saying are from things I see everyday or hear someone say that don’t make sense, funny or catchy.

How long have you been in the fashion industry and when exactly did your clothing line launched?

I have been doing this for about 3 years and we have always been a huge local brand. We launched worldwide June 2011.

Are You Ready For BMF Wives? Lisa Buford Sets The Record Straight & Tell It Like It Is

In the beginning of the year, I reported that Gricelda Chavez, Lisa Buford, Tiffany Gloster, and Tonesa Welch (pictured left to right) were filming a reality show based around the wives and girlfriends of the infamous drug kingpins BMF (Black Mafia Family). Most people in the Hip-Hop community are familiar with BMF, especially “Big Meech” who is currently serving over 30 years in prison for drug trafficking and running a continuing criminal enterprise. The organization, ran by Detroit brothers Terry and Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory had various associations in the Hip Hop community but met it’s fate in 2005, when over 30 members were arrested in a drug raid. The FBI believed that BMF was responsible for moving over 2,500 kilograms of cocaine a month throughout the US and prosecutors believed the organization had made over $270 million dollars. Terry’s wife Tonesa Welch, who calls herself the “First Lady of BMF,” appears to be the Shaunie O’Neal of this whole venture and hopes to help tell Terry’s side of the BMF story. Gricelda Chavez, who was involved with music producer Damon Thomas. Damon was a player in a BMF money-laundering scheme involving jewelry purchases and, when confronted with the evidence, agreed to cooperate with the government as a witness against Terry. Lisa Buford’s man “PJ” was a high-ranking BMF affiliate on Terry’s side of the organization. Tiffany Gloster and her man Jerry “J Rock” Davis were both indicted by the DEA on BMF-related charges in 2007. Tiffany served a two-year sentence for her part in helping to launder the proceeds from J Rock’s cocaine sales. J Rock is currently serving a sentence of 39 years and 10 months in prison.

Baller Alert recently caught-up with Buford for an exclusive interview and she sure did set the record straight. She talked about the motivation behind show, other cast members, negative comments made by Big Meech’s mother and much more. Below are some excerpts:

What was the motivation behind starting the ‘BMF Wives’ show?

Lisa: The motivation was to show the misconception of what type of women we are and a lot of the misconceptions of what we’ve gone through in our lives. It’s not just based around being BMF Wives. None of us just started as ‘BMF Wives’. We all have been exposed to a lot of things in our lives that a lot of young women have. So, it’s kind of to reach back and help some of these young girls not get caught up in that lifestyle.

Who are all of the cast members and what are your relation to each other?

Tonesa (Toni) Welch (far right) is Southwest T’s girlfriend of 16 years, might as well say wife. She’s one of my best friends. Tiffany Davis (2nd to right) is J Rock’s wife and I’ve known her since she was 16. I used to do Tiffany’s hair. My daughter is actually named after her. Grace (Gricelda) Chavez (far left) was dating Damon Thomas at the time. I just recently met her within the last 8 months so I don’t really know her like that. I don’t really even remember her from that time. I didn’t really see her around.
