Rick Ross
Rappers Rick Ross and Meek Mill and singers Wale and Omarion have been named in a new lawsuit over a London gig that never took place.

The promoter claims he also paid for the stars' flights and expenses, amounting to $93,281.26 (£58,300), according to

Review: MMG 'Self Made, Vol. 3': As Money Pours In, Originality Drops A Smidgen

September 24th, 2013 6:20pm EDT
Let’s just cut to the chase… this is the third Maybach Music Group compilation.  That’s a statement in itself.  While the saying is that “third time’s charm”, this particular installment actually seems to be less enthralling than the previous installment. Sure, there is plenty of gangsta to respire here, but this time there is a lack of that surefire juggernaut like “Power Circle” or the coolest funeral arrangement tune “Bury Me A G”.  Maybe Rick Ross spent a little too much time counting his bread, but this feels much more like a compilation.  Oh well.

Self Made 3 opens with “Lil Snupe In...

Who Is The Best Dancer In Music?

November 17th, 2010 9:00am EST
Who is the best dancer in the music game today? Well, the answer to that question is open for discussion, and up to you to decide. The art form of dance however, aside from the creation of music, has remained the secondary form of artistic expression of main importance in music entertainment.

Here are a few of today's top performers in music for whom the medium of dance has become second nature.

Omarion Says Bisexual Women Lack 'Class'

November 11th, 2009 8:29am EST
R&B singer Omarion has taken a sly swipe at Kanye West's bisexual girlfriend Amber Rose, insisting he'd never date a woman who liked males and females because they lack "class."

The "Ice Box" hitmaker, 24, was rumored to have secretly married a bisexual stripper earlier this year, but he has laughed off the reports and claims he is not even dating.
