Mase comes back after “The Oracle” shook up the rap world last week with a new joint called “Rap Rushmore” ft. Diddy and Khaled.
Not sure how long this link will be up.
Nas and Diddy wearing obnoxious mink furs perform “Hate Me Now” at the sold-out Bad Boy Reunion at the Barclays Center.
Dipset fans rejoice. With a bunch of new projects dropping and officially reuniting with his Dipset brethen, Cam’ron seeks to get back to being on top. With recent runway appearances rocking designer capes with his sexy wifey Juju and hints of dropping a sneaker on instagram, Cam is fast making moves back in the fashion space which he along with Jim jones, and Juelz Santana firmly put their stamp on a decade ago. With mentor Dame Dash back in the fold full time, they have joined with Karmaloop to drop Dipset USA clothing. Feels like 2002 all over again? I say until he pulls out the pink fur and Range Rover the story is not complete. Dipset, DipSet, Dipset!!
Why everybody so mad at Mase?

I would like to commend the people over at Livesteez for doing this very important story because it needs to be addressed in the worst way. Where has all the money gone given to Black Churches since forever?
This is not a shot at churches who do good work in the community this is aimed those Pastors who have private jets and vacation in St. Tropez with Bey-Z. Check out an excerpt from their investigative story and make sure you visit their site and give some feedback.
LiveSteez research shows that Black churches, in aggregate, have collected more than $420 billion in tithes and donations since 1980. With a Senate investigation into the finances of several mega churches
underway, the “Prosperity Movement” has been the target of mounting criticism from inside and outside the Black Church. Specifically, the affluent ministries of The Reverend Creflo Dollar, Bishop Eddie Long
and others have drawn the attention – and ire – of some clergy and laypeople alike.
Researcher Henry E. Felder’s study of Blacks’ donation habits demonstrated per capita spending of $508 per year in 2009 dollars. Another source, Tyler Media Services, estimated that Black Church revenue
approached $17 billion in 2006.
One church, the Reverend Dollar’s World Changers, reported $69 million in 2006 income, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Mainstream politicians and Black community leaders are demanding a better accounting of the “return on investment” offered by churches to the communities that fund them. Meanwhile, legions of faithful
churchgoers defend their pastors and accuse their detractors of applying a double standard that ignores the largesse of wealthy, white televangelists, while underplaying the economic development and social service functions provided by the Black Church.
“The church has gotten caught up in materialism and greed, a lifestyle. Many ministers today want to live like celebrities and they want to be treated like celebrities. In other words, instead of the church standing with the community, the church has become self-serving. It has strayed away from its mission” according to Dr.Love Henry Whelchel, professor of church history at The Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta.
