Celebrity News: Lil' Scrappy Enters Drug Rehab

Atlanta rapper, Lil' Scrappy aka Darryl Richardson allegedly admits he has been hooked on marijuana and needs rehab.  He also denies it is a publicity stunt to go into rehab for 30 days.  His drug rehab will be on the reality show (Love and Hip Hop) he stars on, allegedly.  At least he's getting help with his drug addiction, the average rapper probably would not go public to admit they need it. 

When we watched the following video, we have to admit 'Lil' Scrappy sounds honest.  He just happened to be on a reality show and it would be very helpful for the producer to show it, so other rappers whom are hooked on any type of drug would be encouraged to seek help.   Although, 'Lil' Scrappy took a drug test and failed, it does not mean he cannot combat his addiction.  Thank God, he is starting a positive chain reaction.   

We wish 'Lil' Scrappy aka Darryl Richardson the best and God bless him.

Hip Hop Examiner's take on Tim Dog Faking His Own Death

Many of you probably saw the coverage on "Dateline" of Tim Dog aka Tony Blair owing a woman over 2 million dollars can recall how serious that case was.   One of the thing's we've noticed since he's supposed to be dead is that his website is still up as though he is yet alive.   Of course, we've seen a few other dead music artists whom yet have their websites up by record companies, but Tim Dog supposedly is broke and very dead since last Valentine's day.

Strangely, Tim Dog's family never revealed a death certificate or any proof of his burial.   Even his good friend refused to speak at his funeral, because his family did not even show him any proof of his death.   

Before you look at this following news coverage of the prosecuting attorney speaking out about Tim Dog allegedly faking his death.   Go see his website @, there is no mention of his death.  The wording still sounds like he yet is walking around somewhere: " Tim is currently at the helm of Rap Legends Recordings based in Atlanta, Georgia. Tim has been performing and producing various projects like Project X "Iconic" and the American Gangstaz "The Indictment."   Do you feel he is still alive, because his website is still active?

Hip Hop News: Late Rapper Tim Dog's Mysterious Death, Arrest Warrant Issued

Although, Tim Dog aka Tony Blair is supposed to be dead after a seizure, but there is no death certificate to prove it.  There is no proof of him being buried at any cemetery and nobody has mentioned where he died, according to  It should be obvious he's hiding out somewhere, we're not crazy.

Mississippi prosecutor Steven Juber has opened up a case against the rapper, after not able to find proof of his death.  The reason why Juber needed evidence is because back in 2011, Juber was convicted of grand larceny.  Allegedly, he targeted a woman by the name of Ester Pilgrim for money that he claimed would be used to resurrect his music career.

We sincerely hope Juber and investigator find Tim Dog, because he needs to come clean for what he has done to this lady and now, faking his own death.

Hip Hop News: Chicago rapper Chief Keef arrested near Atlanta

Another rapper we have never heard of, a Chicago rapper by the name of Chief Keef has been arrested near Atlanta for drug possession.  No wonder we have a lot of rebellion going on within the black community, too many African Americans filling their heads with this hip hop/rap music, which comes from many music artists who rebellious themselves. 

According to, Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was arrested for disorderly conduct, after security at the hotel "observed smoke and a smell of marijuana from a room," according to Dunwoody, Ga., police. 

We really wish these rappers would find another career and get themselves together, too many of them are not being an example to our youth.

Hip Hop News: 13-year-old rapper Lil Mouse accused of threatening third grader

This is a shame, this 13-year-old rapper, Lil Mouse aka Dwayne Wade we never heard of threatened to kill a third grader, which is half his age.  You know, bullies always threaten people much smaller than them, never do they attack others whom are the same size or older.  Actually, his show name fits who he is and he should not be going around threatening young kids and no one else. 

Whomever is the parent of Lil Mouse, they ought to be ashamed of themselves allowing him to rap.  Why not make him study and when he's 16 years old, get a a part time job?   Rapping is not teaching him a thing about respect.  According to, there were shots this past March at Lil Mouse house party.   Where is this youngster's parents?  Who is raising him, because he seems to have too much control to have a house party at such a young age.  

The grandmother of this third grader says she already lost one child, she's not about to lose another.  On the following video, you will hear her discuss how she has been threatened by even some parents of gangsters.

HHE readers, we need to start sending a word out to parents not to allow their children to get involved with hip hop and rap music, because it seems as though they want quick money and the dangerous lifestyle that goes with it.  Furthermore, if these parents of these alleged gangsters would have God in their lives, then young teens like Lil Mouse would probably think twice about picking on other kids.

Celebrity News: Hip-hop mogul Damon Dash in Debt and near eviction from mansion

This is Damon Dash today, much different than the one who was rich and famous among the hip hop celebrity elite, years ago.  It's funny how when you are no longer popular, you stand alone trying to stay indoors.  Spiritually, Dash is being made for an example to reveal, you can only have your fame and fortune for so long, but when you lose it, there are is no one to help. 

Allegedly, according to,  Hip-hop mogul Damon Dash is so deeply in debt that he claims in court documents he faces imminent eviction from a rented mansion in suburban Carmel, N.Y.  Also, Dash lost a pair of multimillion-dollar Tribeca lofts to foreclosure in 2010, with $7.3 million left on the massive mortgages.

If Damon Dash ever sold his soul to the Devil as this following video allegedly pointed out, what did it do for him?  Many may have enjoyed their fame and fortune after joining the Illuminati, but it only last for so long, because they do not have Jesus Christ.

Hip Hop News: Mourners Preparing to Say Goodbye to Chris Kelly at his Funeral

Mourners are preparing to pay their last respects to Chris Kelly.  As you already know, the 34-year old was found dead in his home and police suspect it was a drug overdose.   Chris Kelly was the duo rapper of Kris Kross with Chris Smith back in the 1990's.   This is very sad to realize how time flies and now he's gone.

Family and friends of the late rapper, Chris Kelly are attending the Jackson Memorial Baptist Church in Atlanta.  

Let us leave this thought with you, if you cannot rap, you can find something else to do in life.   Kelly's cousin allegedly mentioned on the following news video that like a lot of child celebrities, he had a hard time dealing with not being popular like he was, at first.   However, there is no excuse for turning to drugs.  God gave us intelligence and He expects and wants us to use our brains and other abilities He has given to us.   God has a plan for all of our lives and we sincerely feel it is not His will for us to live our lives rapping and/or dancing, rather than doing something else to become successful in life.  Therefore, it is time that all African Americans whom are so distraught of not ever being a star to turn to Jesus and ask Him want He wants them to do and then, just go for it.  It may not be easy at first, but life is never easy, we just have be creative and stop putting ourselves in a category as only being known as rappers, singers and hip hop celebrities.  For too long, some African Americans have not exercise various abilities outside of the rap/hip hop music industry.   Also, let us realize this fact, God is so much greater than rap and hip hop and it is He who should be worshiped, never should we feel life is over, because a certain phase in our life is not what it used to be.

 May Chris Kelly rest in peace, he was too young to die like many other previous rappers.

When you hear this video, it's sad how we can overhear Chris Kelly's mother allegedly say, "it's 9:00 o'clock in the morning."   This guy was on his way to living a very short life.   Kelly sounds like he was drugged on this video.  Now, if he took drugs early in the morning on a regular basis, possibly almost every morning, no wonder he's dead now.   However, anytime you take drugs at any hour, you're already cutting your life, very short.

Hip Hop News: Gucci Mane Released From Jail

Rapper Gucci Mane maybe released from jail, but as the Word of God says in Galatians 6:7.  Therefore, although he is out of jail, there is a higher judge.   Allegedly, Gucci Mane has offended someone once before and he can only keep verbally and physically abusing people for so long before it all comes back to him. 

According to TMZ at, we learned that Gucci Mane is due back in court, later on this month.  So, it's really not over yet.  However, like many other rappers and hip hop music artists, he just may get off, because of his celebrity status.  A lot of times, some celebrities are released from jail, because there are confidential deals made between someone in the judicial system and their attorneys, allegedly.   Like we mentioned in our introduction, whatever happens, Gucci Mane will have to reap what he sows, one way or another, if he does not repent.
