LIL WAYNE MAKE GUINNESS BOOK

GossipCop.com reports Lil Wayne has just made this year’s edition of the Guinness Book of World Records. The rapper was recognized for being the only emcee with The Most U-S Hot 100 Hits (64). The rap mogul managed to beat out Rihanna, who holds the most number one singles in a year for a female.

· Do you think Wayne is numb to his success? Do you think he realizes just how well he’s doing compared to other rappers?

AND…

LIL WAYNE GOES PLATINUM!

Lil Wayne’s album sales continue to increase as the rapper’s Tha Carter IV just reached platinum status in only two weeks. The disc, which has stayed on top of the Billboard 200 chart for two consecutive weeks, sold an additional 218-thousand units, bringing his total to well over 1.1-million copies. Elsewhere, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch The Throne slipped to the number six spot while Beyonce’s 4 maintains the number 9 spot.

KREAYSHAWN TALKS RICK ROSS BEEF

So it looks like Kreayshawn is ready to put her beef with Rick Ross behind her. Just days after Rozay called the fem-cee a “dirty bitch” during an interview with XXL, the “Gucci Gucci” rapper told the U-K’s Urbanworld TV that she had DJ Khaled mediate the situation. She explained, “We worked everything out. As far as that, nothing’s popping off. It’s just a little rough patch at the VMAs, but we got all over it. It’s all over now.” The rapper, who called Ross “fake” in a recent freestyle, added that she’s often misunderstood when she’s really just a “funny, down to earth person.”

· Do you think Kreayshawn’s sense of humor will likely cause another beef?

GAME ALREADY BEGINS NEXT LP?

Even though he just released his R.E.D. Album less than a month ago, The Game has already begun recording his next project. The rapper revealed during a Ustream session that the title of his next LP will be Soundtrack To Chaos. In addition, he’s promising that his last offering on Interscope Records will not include any features. But don’t go thinking the next studio disc will be released anytime soon. In related news, the R.E.D. Album slipped to the number 18 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.

· The disc sold an additional 18-thousand copies, bringing his sales to over 155k.

SWIZZ BEATZ BUYS ALICIA KEYS A CAR

Just a day after rumors of Swizz Beatz allegedly sexting another woman, the hitmaker released a Twitpic of his wife, Alicia Keys, posing in front to a bright red luxury car he purchased her for his birthday. He tweeted, “The best part of my Bday today was my gift I made my wife because my Bday is her Bday.” Hmmm, make-up gift or devoted husband?

AND…

SWIZZ BEATZ’S MISTRESS ADMITS TO THEIR AFFAIR

We previously reported that things might be going bad between Swizz Beatz and his second wife, Alicia Keys. After several gossip sites reporting that the hitmaker allegedly sent a naked picture of himself to a woman named Christina Elizabeth, his alleged mistress is speaking out. While Swizz is yet to confirm or deny sending the pictures, Christina said in a statement sent to Bossip.com:

“I would like to confirm that the rumor about Swizz Beatz cheating on Mashonda with me is absolutely true. I would also like to confirm that the rumors about Swizz ‘sexting’ me, even in his present marriage, are absolutely true. I am also confirming that I lost my cell phone and someone else posted all the stuff that you see on the Internet. Even though Swizz offered and offered and offered to buy me things, the only thing I accepted was plane tickets to go see him. He’s a wonderful man and I had a great time with him as well as a great relationship. Of course he’ll deny the whole thing and of course Alicia will stand up for her man. It’s understood.”

ESTELLE ISSUES NEW SINGLE

After unleashing “Break My Heart” featuring Rick Ross, Estelle has released another great offering from her forthcoming third album, All Of Me. The British singer issued a new tune called “Thank You,” which was written by and includes background vocals from Akon. She told Rap-Up.com, “I wanted it to be something I felt through my heart, through my body, through my mind. By the time I got to the chorus of this song, I was damn near crying. It just resonated just SO much with me.” She added, “I play it for my guy friends and THEY even start crying. It’s just that kind of song. I’m honored to be able to bring it to you.”

· Do you plan on purchasing All Of Me? Do you think Estelle is underrated?

ERYKAH BADU BROKE UP WITH COMMON

For some reason, we always assumed that Common broke off his relationship with Erykah Badu, however, the rapper revealed it was actually the other way around. During an interview with Wendy Williams, he spilled, “[Erykah] handed it to me. I was in my hotel room on tour and she called me and was like, ‘Hey, I don’t wanna be in this relationship no more. I like someone else.’” Even though that was his “first love and first heartbreak,” the former couple has remained friends.

· In case you forgot, Common and Erykah dated between 2000 and 2002.
