Wedding Bells: T.I. & Tiny Officially Say I Do in Three Cities

T.I. and longtime girlfriend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle have officially tied the knot on Saturday, July 31, 2010 in Miami, according to MTV News. The nuptials are best described as a fairytale wedding! After exchanging vows at the courthouse on Friday, TI and Tiny did it up right on Miami’s Star Island Saturday. Tiny wore a Valentino gown and TI wore a white tuxedo by Prada. They arrived at the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage that looked like Cinderella’s pumpkin. The party even included fireworks.

The guest list reportedly included names like Kandi Burruss from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Young Dro, Yung LA and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, Usher, Nelly, Jermaine Dupri and more partied until the wee hours of the morning at Cameo Nightclub last night.  Rihanna was also spotted in the building after performing at American Airlines Arena. Bow Wow and Angela Simmons were there too. El DeBarge sang for the happy couple. After the wedding, the new Mr. and Mrs. Harris went to Atlanta and then Las Vegas for more celebrations.

Tiny’s rep Prince Kennedy denied rumors that the couple is to say “I do” in yet another locale. “A lot of people initially heard they were doing it in Hawaii. They are not,” says Kennedy.

Though it would seem the couple has made the wedding a big to-do, Tiny said earlier this year she wanted a “private” wedding and was waiting for the right moment to make it official.

“We living, we’re happy, we’re in love. I mean, it’s no doubt in my mind that he doesn’t love every piece of me and vice versa, so we’re just doing what’s comfortable and what works for us,” Tiny told Vibe magazine. “Tiny and T.I.: Not for the world. When we get ready to make a move, we will make it. We just can’t do it for everybody.”

Music News: Nelly’s Relative Murdered!

“He Was Not My Bodyguard, He Was My Cousin & My Friend!”

Grammy-winning rapper Nelly‘s cousin, Michael Johnson, was murdered this week in Missouri after being fatally shot. Based on reports, the murder took place on Wednesday (April 28).
A murder investigation is hitting close to home for St. Louis rap star, Nelly. Multiple sources close to Nelly tell News 11 the victim was one of Nelly’s bodyguards. The victim is 36 year old Michael Johnson sources describe him as Nelly’s left hand man, or someone who was by the rapper’s side providing security. St. Louis county police responded to a home on Nola, near north Hanley Wednesday night just before midnight. Johnson was shot several times. (KDVR News).

Further details suggest Johnson‘s death occurred at his home. A man who St. Louis hip-hop star Nelly referred to as his cousin (or, rather his “cuzzen”) was killed Wednesday night outside a home in the 8000 block of Nola, near the intersection of N. Hanley and St. Charles Rock Road. Michael Johnson, 36, was shot multiple times while leaving or entering the home in unincorporated St. Louis County. Police have no suspects or motives for the crime. (River Front Times).

Nelly has since confirmed the reports and aired out a local news station for its false reporting.

“Contrary to some reports micheal johnson wasnt my bodyguard!he was my cuzzen and my friend!!I will always luv n miss u MJ!!!!!,” he wrote late Thursday night. “Channel 2 stl don’t Ever have 2worry about another interview from me or a stlunatic ever again!!

Why would you channel 2 mix me giving away scholarships 2students with the murder of my cuzzen after I told u I didn’t want 2talk about it Ino its your right chnnel 2 but Y is it when a brother goes to do good they wanna make the bad the headline?thanx for the home town support After watching channel 2’s broadcast its clear to me about motives!my cuzzen deserved his own segment as well as the 2 deserving students!! I’m NEVER WATCHING CHANNEL 2 news in stl ever again!!! STLOUIS SPREAD THE WORD!!!” (Nelly’s Twitter)

Earlier this month, Nelly confronted alleged groupie Kat Stacks in an interview.

“Sweetheart, all you have to tell me is what hotel did we f*ck in,” Nelly said during a radio interview. “You have to tell me one that we’ve been f*cking around at for two months. Tell me one of them, please…I’ve been exposed? You lie. You can’t tell me one hotel. You can’t tell me one hotel in two months that you’ve seen me at ever in your life…And find that hotel we f*cked at because you said it was several of them. Why is it you can go into details about everybody else but me? Why we ain’t got no details? What happened? Get the f*ck out of here. I can’t even understand her. Let me go get my son. It’s to your best interest to quit with the lies. She knows she’s lying. I know one motherf*ck that didn’t touch her. I know one for sure.” (Shade 45)

No further details have been revealed as of now.

DMX To Headline International Tour After Release…

This summer, 38 year-old rapper DMX is all set to headline the 2009 Ambush 2.0 Tour. According to AllHipHop.com, the event will run nationwide from June through August, and will go international from September to December.

Confirmed opening acts for the tour include Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Rampage, Rah Diggah, and reportedly a different surprise guest at every city. Although the tour is definitely scheduled to take place, locations and dates are still being finalized.

The announcement that DMX will be headlining Ambush 2.0 comes during the multi-platinum rapper’s 90 day stint in prison. In February, X was put on “lockdown status” for threatening to assault a jail officer and then put on a diet of bread and water. Following the incident, he faced more jail time for throwing a tray of food at a corrections officer.

DMX is scheduled to be released from jail on April 30.

Rick Ross’ Triple C’s Ink Deal With Def Jam.

Rick Ross may have 50 Cent and his forthcoming album, “Deeper Than Rap”, on his mind, but the rapper recently took time out to provide a boost for his group, Carol City Cartel (Triple C’s).

Sources told AllHipHop.com that Ross has secured a distribution deal for the collective through Def Jam Records.

The new deal provided an opportunity for the Miami rapper to introduce the newest Triple C’s member, Young’n Breed.

The Maybach Music Group artist’s alliance with the group as well as the distribution deal comes as a major milestone for everyone involved.

“On my first trip ever to New York I showcased for LA Reid and celebrated our deal with Jay Z, Timbaland and Nas – it don’t get better than that,” Breed said.

Prior to the deal, Triple C’s was known for their association with Ross, who recently spent time in New York collaborating with R&B crooner Ryan Leslie for the song “Diamonds and Maybachs” and working out details for the video to the Nas-featured tune “Usual Suspects.”

The group, which also includes rappers Gunplay and Torch, has appeared on Ross’ debut album “Port of Miami” as well as the rap star’s 2008 sophomore opus “Trilla“.

The Def Jam deal comes as Ross gears up for the release of Deeper Than Rap. Maybach Music Group, Def Jam, XO Management and Serious Promotions will celebrate the album’s release on April 20. Invited guests for the event include Jay-Z, Nas and Timbaland. Deeper Than Rap is Ross’ follow-up to Trilla.

The release, which spawned the hit singles “The Boss” featuring T-Pain and “Here I Am” featuring Nelly and Avery Storm, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart upon its first week of release.

Ross, who is currently engaged in a war of words with rap rival 50 Cent, is currently enjoying the success of his latest hit, the John Legend-assisted “Magnificent.”

The tune is the first single from Deeper than Rap, which is slated to hit stores April 21.

Just In: Nelly Gambles Career On Vegas Variety Show!

According to We Party Fresh, Nelly is turning his attention away from music and putting all his chips on a Las Vegas variety TV show.

“Nelly’s Night in Vegas” is being pitched to networks as a weekly series that would feature Nelly and celebrity guests. He is working with NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” producer 25/7 Prods. on the effort.

Producers have already worked out a deal with Planet Hollywood to shoot the weekly talk show-variety hybrid at the hotel and casino, according to Variety.

Nelly would have his own sidekick and house band, as well as guests and performances. And what would a Vegas show be if it didn’t include an in-studio gaming element?

“I was thinking about what was missing on TV, and when this idea came about, it made sense for me,” said the rapper. “We do have talk shows, but no one’s speaking from the pop culture perspective. Let’s get a little more pop, a little more edge, a little bit younger, and not look like you’re sitting in the principal’s office. As a performer, that’s the type of show you look forward to going on.”

Wire Talk: Nelly & Ashanti’s Proposal – Not Approved by Mom?

According to Star Magazine, Nelly is ready to propose to his girlfriend of five years, Ashanti. But there’s just one problem: He can’t stand her mother, Tina Douglas!

Tina sticks her nose in everything because she’s also Ashanti’s manager,” a source tells Star. “She’s always pushing Ashanti to make more money, to always look great. It stresses her out, and Nelly doesn’t like that.”

The rapper, 34, has tried to encourage Ashanti, 28, to become more independent, but “Tina has such a strong personality that she’s kind of afraid of her.” Still, if the singer doesn’t put her mom in her place soon, she won’t be getting that rock she’s been hoping for.

“Before he makes her his wife,” adds the source, “Nelly wants to know that Ashanti can make decisions on her own.”
