Jay-Z and Beyonce Welcome Baby Girl, Blue Ivy Carter

By: Alvin Aqua Blanco

The most anticipated childbirth in Hip-Hop history finally happened; Beyoncé gave birth to Blue Ivy Carter in New York City on Saturday night (January 7). Jay-Z’s new bundle of joy was delivered via C-section in Lenox Hill Hospital, reports TMZ.

It was originally reported that the baby’s name is Ivy Blue Carter, but E! News made a correction, noting Hova is telling his friends it’s Blue Ivy. Jigga has an affinity for the color since the has reportedly been attempting to patent “Jay-Z Blue.” Rumors have been circulating for the last few weeks about when the singer was due, with some even wondering if the she was even pregnant. The latter lost those bets.

Rihanna took to Twitter to congratulate the couple on their new arrival. “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih,” she tweeted.

According to the NY Daily News, Beyoncé checked into Lenox Hill Hospital last night under the name “Ingrid Jackson,” and rented out its entire fourth floor for $1.3 million.

Now, when do we get to see the pictures?

PETA Goes After Dr. Dre Over Furry Headphones

by: Roman Wolfe

Hit producer/mogul Dr. Dre is in hot water with PETA over a new limited edition run of Beats by Dre headphones.

Dre, born Andre Young, has teamed with Oscar De La Renta to release a limited-edition line of Beats by Dre earmuff headphones, that are wrapped in fox fur.

Earlier in the week Michelle Cho, a representative for PETA, fired off a letter to Dr. Dre urging him to respect animal rights.

“We wanted to get in touch to urge you to keep fur and exotic-animal skins out of your Beats by Dre designs,” Michelle Cho wrote. “Foxes, minks, rabbits, and other animals—including cats and dogs—are bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, strangled with wire nooses, drowned, and even skinned alive for their pelts.”

Cho explained to Dr. Dre that most animals are killed for their fur in China, because there are no penalties for animal abuse want for farms.

Cho also provided Dr. Dre with a video featuring Eva Mendes, to educate himself on animal abuse.

Cho urged Dr. Dre to use his influence around the world to make a positive difference in the lives animals.

“You have a tremendous amount of influence on young people,” Cho continued. “Won’t you please consider using your platform to advocate kindness toward animals by pledging never to design with real fur and exotic skins?”

Dr. Dre’s Beats by Dre fox fur earmuff headphones retail for $695.

Common remixes Rick Ross “Stay Schemin”, Disses Drake

Common has extended his beef with Drake to another diss track . Com, who originally sparked the war of words with his salty cut “Sweet,” has recorded a remix to Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin” that originally featured Drake and French Montana.

Releasing the remix to MTV’s RapFix, Com photoshopped “That Hoe Ass Nigg%” where Drake’s name would be on cover art for the cut. He leaves Drake’s verse intact, which features lines including “I see no need to compete with niggas like y’all.”

Com unleashes on Drake on his following verse, even calling him out by name. “My motto is Chicago bitch, everybody know you’re sweet, what the problem is? / Don’t play dumb, I’m the one that acknowledged this,” “The rapper of the moment, the style he don’t own it / Acting all hard when he hardly like that / You gon’ mess around and make me catch a body like that / Don’t do it, ’cause every song you make Joe is really hoe music.”
