Hov slid the "Holy Grail" track over to Funkmaster Flex to do a midnight premiere of his first official single.  And even though many Samsung users reported not being able to download the album at midnight as promised (Samsung tweeted that they broke the internet), everyone was able to hear this new joint via Flex's site and Hot 97.

Justin kicks off the "Holy Grail" track crooning about being so in love. And he's going out of his mind trying to figure out how the woman truly feels about him.  Jay comes in rapping a few bars and samples Nirvana's "Teen Spirit" on one of them.

SCANDAL: Kerry Washington SECRETLY Marries San Francisco 49ers Cornerback Ezenwa Nnamdi Asomugha, County Clerk CONFIRMS

Posted: 03 Jul 2013 03:44 PM PDT

 photo teaserkw.jpg

While ABC's "Scandal" is on hiatus, its leading lady, Kerry Washington, has caused a scandal of her own by marrying San Francisco 46ners cornerback Ezenwa Nnamdi Asomugha. See their wedding certificate inside....


With a storyline straight out of her hit tv series, "Scandal", E! News confirms that Hollywood royalty, Kerry Washington, quietly wed 31-year-old San Francisco 49ers cornerback Ezenwa Nnamdi Asomugha on June 24 in Hailey, Idaho.  A rep from the county clerk's office told US Weekly

"It has been recorded in the Blaine County clerk's office that Nnamdi Asomugha and Kerry Washington have been married on the 24th of June in the town of Hailey, Idaho."

ABC News reports that Kerry's parents Earl and Valerie Washington signed the license as witnesses to the nuptials and Chisaraokwu Asomugha officiated the ceremony.

Sports gossip site was the first to report the nuptials, saying, "We just received word that actress Kerry Washington has married NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha."  

31-year-old Nnamdi, 31, is a three-time Pro Bowler, who played for the Oakland Raiders and the Philadelphia Eagles before signing with the 49ers this year.

Though the couple had been dating since last summer, their relationship was very "under the radar" and the marriage comes as a shock to most of Kerry's fans.   Previously, Kerry was engaged to actor David Moscow for three years until they parted ways in 2007.

A rep for Washington told ABC News, “I don’t comment on my client’s personal life.” And Nnamdi's rep said, “We don’t comment on our clients’ personal lives.”

Kerry is currently on the cover of Vanity Fair's August 2013 issue.

CHARGED! 50 Cent ACCUSED Of DOMESTIC ABUSE! Plus....He's Got A NEW (Secret) Baby Mama! (UPDATE)

Posted: 03 Jul 2013 02:29 PM PDT

 photo 50CentAfterEarthPremieresNYCPart3H7R2SFRKxAnxl.jpg

Rapper 50 Cent has been brought up on charges of domestic violence. Oh, and we just learned he has a brand new secret baby mama! And SHE's the victim.  Get the deets on the incident inside....

 photo x2_6f7971bb.jpg

The L.A. City Attorney's office has charged "In Da Club" rapper 50 Cent with 1 count of domestic violence and 4 counts of misdemeanor vandalism against a female victim whom he has a "child in common."

According to TMZ, on June 23, the rapper is accused of kicking his baby momma, Shaniqua Tompkins, Daphne Joy (shown above in 2011) and causing nearly $7,100 worth of damage to her Toluca Lake, Ca. condo.  If convicted on all counts, he could face up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines.  

While we're waiting for additional details to emerge, this incident isn't out of character for the rapper.  You'll recall that there was a reported incident of 50's entourage trashing the office of Shaniqua's lawyer and there was suspicion around who REALLY burned down Shaniqua's home in 2008.    


TMZ is now reporting that 50 Cent was accused of attacking former girlfriend Daphne Joy NOT Shaniqua Tompkins!  Apparently. Daphne had a baby for 50 Cent last fall and WE MISSED IT!  And for his part, 50 Cent has NEVER acknowledged having a second child. SMH.  

When TMZ asked baby momma #1, Shaniqua Tompkins for a comment, she told TMZ that she DID NOT files charges against 50.  Hmmmm. That only leaves Daphne in the mix....and we know she lives in Toluca Lake, Ca (just like the accuser)!

We'll keep you posted.
