R&B/Pop star Chris Brown has announced his sixth album. Although there is not yet a release date, the Richmond, Virginia vet will title his 2012 Fortune album, X. The 23 year-old controversial figure’s upcoming album already has at least one high-profile Hip Hop guest, Kendrick Lamar.
The resulting collaboration, reportedly titled “Autumn Leaves” was described by Chris Breezy as “If you’re in your car just riding, it’s perfect. It just feels like a weather record—an emotional record. I feel a certain way when I hear it.” MTV, who conducted the interview, reported the song to have a tempo inspired by a heartbeat. Production on the album has been confirmed by Diplo, as well as former Timbaland protege and fellow V.A. native Danja (f/k/a Danjahandz).
As for the overall title, Chris claims it takes on a number of meanings. “The song and the album title ‘X’ has a couple different meanings,” explained the longtime Sony Records star. “It can refer to an ex-girlfriend, in terms of you always look forward to moving forward from. It’s also about being a reject in a sense. In me being myself, being able to grow up, me not always hanging around the right crowd or doing the right thing all the time—it’s me saying, ‘I’m over it. I’m past the bullsh– now.’”
Fortune was a #1 debut for Chris Brown, selling approximately 135,000 copies upon its June, 2012 release. It was Brown’s second #1.
Two days after an arrest warrant was issued for Atlanta, Georgia rapper Gucci Mane being charged with the assault of a United States soldier and war veteran, another victim is coming forward with additional allegations. According to Atlanta’s WSBTV Channel 2—the same outlet that initially reported the first assault, a fan was punched in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania after approaching Gucci Mane at a concert.
“I haven’t ever been so humiliated in my life and disrespected,” the victim, who asked only to be called TJ, told WSBTV on Monday (March 25). “He punched me on the left side of my face, right here in the jaw, knocking off my glasses.” The victim claims that the altercation at Philly’s Club Onyx caused him a chipped tooth and swelling of the face. The fan said that Gucci’s entourage prevented him from properly defending himself.
At present, Gucci Mane has yet to turn himself into police. This the latest in a long history of legal troubles for the 1017 Brick Squad leader, who’s been a longtime Warner Bros. Records artist throughout multiple incarcerations for battery and aggravated assault convictions in 2005 and 2011. This second assault report also follows a month where Gucci apparently kicked star protege and album collaborator Waka Flocka Flame out of his Brick Squad organization via Twitter. A label rep later said that Gucci’s account was “hacked.”
After months of controversy surrounding Snoop Lion’s religious conversion and name change, it looks like his documentary Reincarnated has finally secured a release.
According to a recent press release, Reincarnated has received a limited theatrical release beginning this March 15. The film, which is a joint production between VICE Films and Snoop’s own Snoopadelic Films, will debut in six cities across the country, including New York and Los Angeles.
Reincarnated documents the Long Beach, California rapper’s decision to join the Rastafari movement and the recording of his upcoming reggae album of the same name. The film was also officially selected to screen at the renowned Toronto International Film Festival.
Most recently, Bob Marley and the Wailers member Bunny Wailer criticized Snoop’s film and questioned the sincerity of his religious conversion. Despite Wailer’s criticism, Bob Marley’s son Rohan Marley defended Snoop and welcomed him to the movement.

Caleb Moore, an innovative freestyle snowmobile rider who was hurt in a crash at the Winter X Games in Colorado, died Thursday morning. He was 25.
Moore was being treated at a hospital in Grand Junction since the Jan. 24 crash. Family spokeswoman Chelsea Lawson confirmed his death, the first in the 18 year history of the X Games.
“He lived his life to the fullest. He was an inspiration,” Lawson said.
A former all-terrain vehicle racer, Moore switched over to snowmobiles as a teenager and quickly rose to the top of the sport. He won four Winter X Games medals, including a bronze last season when his younger brother, Colten, captured gold.
Caleb Moore was attempting a backflip in the freestyle event in Aspen when the skis on his 450-pound snowmobile caught the lip of the landing area, sending him flying over the handlebars. Moore landed face first into the snow with his snowmobile rolling over him.
Moore stayed down for quite some time, before walking off with help and going to a hospital to treat a concussion. Moore developed bleeding around his heart and was flown to a hospital in Grand Junction for surgery. The family later said that Moore, of Krum, Texas, also had a complication involving his brain.
Colten Moore was injured in a separate crash that same night. He suffered a separated pelvis in the spill.
The family said in a statement they were grateful for all the prayers and support they have received from people around the world.
X Games officials expressed their condolences and said Moore, a 4-time X Games medalist, would be remembered “for his natural passion for life and his deep love for his family and friends.”
B.C. Vaught, Caleb Moore’s agent for almost a decade, said he first saw Moore when he was racing an ATV in Minnesota and signed him up to star in some action sports movies.
Later, Moore wanted to make the switch from ATVs to snowmobiles and Vaught helped him. A natural talent, it only took Moore two weeks to master a difficult backflip.
Moore’s brother also got involved in snowmobiling, the close-knit duo pushing each other to become better.
Moore honed his skills in Krum, a town about 5,000 people 50 miles northwest of Dallas that rarely sees snow. Instead, he worked on tricks by launching his sled into a foam pit. After a brief training run on snow ramps in Michigan, he was ready for his sport’s biggest stage – the 2010 Winter X Games. Read the rest of this entry »

Two fugitive women were captured on Thursday in Memphis, one of which was wanted in connection with a bizarre murder.
Memphis hip hop model, Natasha Stewart, also known as Pebbelz Da Model, was questioned for the death of a Mississippi woman who was murdered by way of an injection of concrete into her buttocks. Pebbelz allegedly referred several people, some transgendered, to the “doctor” giving the illegal butt enhancements. Pebbelz was taken in on a Fugitive from Justice Warrant.
The friend she was with, 21-year-old Shannetria Newberry, was charged with aggravated assault, failure to appear on a felony case, bodily harm, and criminal forfeiture.
Both are being held at the Shelby County Jail in Tennessee.
Despite continuous requests for the former couple to let the overweight woman croon, it looks as though Deion Sanders and Pilar Sanders will carry their legal back and forth well into 2013. Pilar Sanders has recently vowed to continue fighting with her ex over custody of their two children. In response to losing the most recent custody battle in court, Pilar says she is a “victim of Deion’s celebrity status.”
More from Page Six:
At a Dallas court hearing on Wednesday, model and actress Pilar Sanders lost temporary custody of her two boys, who have been living with their NFL Network analyst and Hall of Famer father. The judge also reduced Pilar’s child support from $10,500 to $5,500 a month. She will retain custody of their daughter. Her publicist, Kali Bowyer, said, “Pilar has become a victim of Deion’s celebrity status, which has swayed the courts and blinded justice . . . It has become evident at this point that there is an absolute prejudice against Pilar, and this has become a completely one-sided court circus.” Pilar herself said, “I am sad that Deion has been able to keep my boys away from me since Oct. 26 — no Halloween, no Thanksgiving — and now he is threatening to keep them away from me for Christmas. . . . He is using our innocent children as a pawn in this ugly, ugly divorce.” The warring pair, whose battle began with an April domestic dispute at their home, are due back in court Jan. 9 to discuss child custody issues. Pilar wants their 13-year marriage annulled, and their drama-filled divorce case will go to a jury.
