After reuniting at onstage at a performance earlier this year, major speculation came about that a new album from the reunited Hot Boyz would be dropping this year. Lil Wayne even mentioned it at that concert. But as Wayne basks in his own success and now has signed a freshman phenom known as Drake that has the music world buzzing, his old crew has been put back on the backburner. Juvenile recently spoke on the subject. "They already gave me some money on that project but I don't really know what happened to that," Juvie said in an interview with XXL about reunion. "I would love to give people a concrete answer but all I can tell you is I did receive some money for that project. I don't know what happened with the business on everybody else so I can only speak on a Juvenile standpoint."
All you weed heads are going to love this … Fox News is reporting … You’ve heard about using marijuana and drugs derived from it to keep some of the side effects of toxic cancer chemotherapy in check. But what if smoking marijuana for 10 to 20 years could actually protect against certain tumors?
In a study, researchers have found that long-term pot smokers were roughly 62 percent less likely to develop head and neck cancers than people who did not smoke pot.The new study featured 434 patients with head and neck cancers, which include tumors in the mouth, tongue, nose, sinuses, throat and lymph nodes in the neck, and 547 individuals without these cancers seen in the Greater Boston area from December 1999 to December 2003.

Everything that we wanted to know about the Rihanna Chris Brown Fight was released today… The night of the big fight Rihanna told the officer she got into an argument with Chris Brown over something that had occurred at an event they were at earlier in the evening.
“The victim said she became enraged and slammed both of her fists against the dashboard on the passenger side of the car they were in. She reported that the defendant then pulled the vehicle over and reached over her with his right hand. He opened the car door and tried to force the victim out.”
According to the report, Brown was unable to shove Rihanna out of the car because she was wearing a seatbelt.
The report continues, “When he could not force her to exit, he took his right hand and shoved her head against the passenger window of the car. ”
“The victim then faced the defendant and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand. He then continued driving.”
“As he drove, he continued to punch the victim in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand.”
Rihanna told cops the “assault caused her mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter over her clothing and the inside of the car.”
Rihanna told cops after Brown “stopped his first assault .. she looked in the mirror and saw her eye beginning to swell.
[Brown] looked at [Rihanna] and said ‘I’m going to beat the shit out of you when we get home! You wait and see!’”
Rihanna told police she tried to call her personal assistant, but she didn’t pick up — but Rihanna says she “pretended to talk, saying, ‘I’m on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there.’”
Rihanna says she pulled the act “because she did not want to get beat anymore.”
But after Rihanna’s fake phone conversation, she claims Brown “looked at [Rihanna] and said, “You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I’m really going to kill you!”
Rihanna told cops that Brown unleashed a second wave of punches, “during which time [Rihanna] interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face.” He continued to punch her on her left arm, which caused a contusion on her left tricep.
At that point Rihanna tried texting her assistant. Brown threw the phone out of the car, stopped the vehicle and Rihanna then tried opening her door to get out, but Brown sped off and the door shut with Rihanna inside.
Brown placed Rihanna in a headlock while he drove, then bit her on her left ear. The car eventually stopped and Rihanna took the keys out of the ignition, and Brown began to punch her again in the face and arms. He placed her in a headlock and started applying pressure to her carotid artery. She couldn’t breathe and began to lose consciousness. She tried freeing herself, and Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers and then released her.
Rihanna took off her shoe and tried breaking the passenger window, and he continued to punch her.
Eventually, Brown got out of the car. Rihanna opened the door and continued screaming. Brown began punching her again. He got back in the car and screamed “Where are my f***ing keys?” He got out, looked for the keys in vain, and when he could not find them removed several CDs and walked away.
Officers were called and observed numerous contusions and abrasions to Rihanna’s face and forehead, as well as bruising on her left arm. There were other injuries as well.
Investigators determined Brown was wearing a large ring on his right hand which caused several of Rihanna’s injuries.
