HHDX News Bits (Greg Street, Snoop's Wife & Ludacris)
Greg Street Certified Worldwide will feature appearances by Lil Wayne, Game, Soulja Boy, Kardinal Offishall, Rich Boy, Wale and others.
"The concept is breaking artists/introducing artist'sI want to be the source for real artists who want to do what they do and go hard in their lane," Greg Street told HipHopDX. "Hip-Hop is very diverse and a lot of critics try to compare artist to other artists and put them in boxes. And to me it's not right. If you're talented and have a good work ethic anything is possible."
The Mississippi native has been a DJ at V103 for close to 15 years and his show on V103 has secured the #1 rated Arbitron spot in all demographics.
As part of promotion for Greg Street Certified Worldwide, Greg Street will hold a "Good Day" Cookout Tour which will make stops in several cities and is free to everyone.
The first single off of the compilation "Good Day" with the Nappy Roots has already been featured on 106 and Park.
Shante Broadus, wife of rapper Snoop Dogg, has been cleared of driving under the influence of marijuana, after police failed to provide enough evidence against her. As DX reported earlier [click to read] the mother of three was pulled over in the early hours of June 14th while driving in Fullerton, California. She was detained and booked on DUI charges, however the Orange County District Attorney has rejected the case, claiming there was insufficient evidence to prove that her driving was impaired.
Snoop Dogg and Shante, high school sweethearts, have been married since 1997.
He didnt get to do his thing with Pepsi thanks to Bill OReilly, but it looks like Ludacris will get the last laugh as he has partnered with one of the biggest phone companies in the world.
In a move to keep their brand of product accessible to the youth, AT&T has landed a deal with Ludacris to supply them the outlet. This multi-million dollar contract is the first of its kind to be offered up from AT&T as far as Hip Hop acts are involved. Along with promoting AT&T products through online advertisements, Ludacris will also do a few television ad spots, one of which has already been shot and is expected to air in August.
The commercial follows the same scheme as the latest AT&T commercials, where Ludacris will lose phone service as an unexpected situation comes up. However, because of his inept service, he misses out on the action by not having AT&T.
This will also be Ludacris second phone commercial thus far as he did one in 2005 for Boost Mobile.
Featured alongside Kanye West and The Game, they rapped through their Boost mobile phones, with a full version of the song being released to the public soon afterward.
