Soulja Boy stays in suspect situations involving his cars. The tatted up struggle rapper’s latest dilemma involves his red Bentley and surveillance cameras the authorities use in L.A. to track down traffic scofflaws. SB’s prized Bentley has been impounded. This appears to be the same 2012 Bentley GT he proudly showed off in 2011 when he claimed to be one of the first to own the exotic vehicle. Now, it seems that Soulja Boy, or someone pushing his whip, was involved in a traffic accident with a man on a motorcycle. However, the automobile fled the scene. That’s when things start to really get interesting. Read the full story over at TMZ.

It’s tough being a Black man in Hollywood, even if your name is Sean “Diddy” Combs. Actually, in this case it’s a Black man’s pricey car and its occupants that go through the struggle.
Diddy caused a big commotion outside the most swanky place in L.A. today … well, it was actually Diddy’s car that triggered a guns-drawn response by L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies. We’ve learned Diddy had just been dropped off at the Soho House … an ultra-exclusive, private club in West Hollywood. Diddy’s bodyguard and another person drove Diddy’s $500,000 Maybach away from Soho, but they didn’t get far. We’re told someone called 911 and said someone inside the Maybach had a gun. At least 9 squad cars roared to the scene. Cops pulled their guns and ordered the occupants of the Maybach out of the car and made them lie prone on the ground, until they discovered there weren’t any guns. The street was closed down temporarily until deputies gave the all-clear.
“Snoop Lion 420 Festival” — a giant party being held in a Hollywood Hills mansion to celebrate all things cannab!s — started at 11:00 AM … but quickly crashed and burned thanks to a bunch of fuddy-duddy neighbors.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … multiple neighbors in the surrounding area complained about the noise levels and parking situation caused by hoards of weed-loving partygoers. The fact that the party didn’t have a permit didn’t help matters either.
Cops arrived and quickly shut it down, putting a kibosh on the all-night festivities.
Our sources say no one was cited and Snoop was not there.
We think it’s safe to say that Snoop will have no trouble finding another spot to celebrate 4/20.
Snoop Lion’s new album, Reincarnated, is in stores April 23.
This past Wednesday, ‘RnB Live Hollywood’ returned with their 5-year anniversary show at venue Mooba in Hollywood. The nights lead performer was soul songstress Marsha Ambrosius, who performed a sultry and soothing set of her fan favorites and some new tracks. One of the nights highlights was when the UK bred singer/songwriter was randomly joined by R&B veteran Aaron Hall, and the two dueted on “Piece of My Love” and “Say Yes.” Peep the video footage below:
R&B singer Robin Thicke, no longer wants to work with BET and the “Real Husbands of Hollywood” anymore. According to a gossip blog, Robin Thicke abruptly quit the show after making the cast and crew wait hours for him to show up to set. Thicke, singer no longer wants to be a cast member on the fake reality show sitcom because he feels it’s tarnishing his brand. He doesn’t believe he has the type of fans who watch BET. As you would expect, the executives over at BET are upset because Robin Thicke was looked at as the person who brought a little bit of crossover appeal to the show. Sources also say, a member of Thicke’s camp called the set after Thicke had the television crew waiting for hours to say, “Keep the check because Robin is not doing the show anymore.”
Will Smith has begun the promo run for his up-coming sci-fi epic “After Earth” but he can’t jump ahead to the future just yet. In a conversation with EW the megastar answered once and for all why he turned down the titular role in last year’s slavery themed revenge western, “Django: Unchained.” Jamie Foxx was eventually given the role of the freed slave turned bounty hunter, but it was originally offered to Smith. The “Men In Black” star admits that he felt the story was “brilliant” but that it was “Just not for me.” But why? “Django wasn’t the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead. The other character was the lead,” he confessed, referring to Christopher Waltz Dr. King . Smith added that he wanted Django to have more control over his fate. “I was like, ‘No, Quentin, I need to kill the bad guy!” Can you blame him? After this many years in Hollywood Will Smith has earned the right not to play second fiddle to anyone. Ever since it was revealed that Smith turned down “The Matrix” to do “Wild Wild West” every script he’s passed on has come under scrutiny. But we’re pretty sure that he took one look at who ultimately took down the slave master and realized that Django wasn’t quite what it was purported to be.
