A Spike Lee-directed 15-minute spoof film, “Lovers & Haters” starring Carey as herself and a karaoke function are billed as bonus features. The DVD will be available through an exclusive retail deal with Best Buy starting Dec. 4.
Houston rappers Chamillionaire and Paul Wall are collaborating again for the first time since their well-publicized split a few years ago. The track, the Texas Street Takeover Version of Chamillionaire’s single, “Won’t Let You Down” (from his latest LP, Ultimate Victory) also features Slim Thug, Lil Keke, Mike Jones, Trae, Bun B, Z-Ro and Pimp C. The newly-recorded version appears on the fourth installment of his Mixtape Messiah series in stores Dec. 18. Childhood friends Chamillionaire and Paul Wall recorded together as members of the group Color Changin’ Click before they each pursued their own major-distribution deals separately. As a surprise to their fans, they performed together on stage for the first time earlier this month during the BET Black College Tour. To hear the remix, visit www.myspace.com/chamillionaire.
Rapper/actor Romeo “Lil’ Romeo” Miller will be graduating from Beverly Hills High School this spring as an honor student with a full scholarship to play basketball for University of Southern California. “This is the most important thing I've had to do, and hopefully it sends a message to kids across the country that education is more important than money,” Miller told The Associated Press. “Getting a college scholarship is more important than winning an American Music Award, and I plan to be the best student-athlete I can be.” One ranking service, Hoopersonly.com charts Miller as one of the top 15 high school point guards in the nation with an average of 15 points and 9 assists a game.
New evidence has surfaced in the ongoing Christoper "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace wrongful death suit. Several new defendants, including Marion "Suge" Knight and police office Rafael Perez can be included in the case, a federal judge in Los Angeles tentatively ruled, reports The Associated Press. In her decision, U. S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper wrote that new evidence shows that Perez was on duty that night and may have been at the scene. Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace was killed outside the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997. A previous lawsuit ended in a mistrial in 1997. While many theories have surfaced about his murder, no one has ever been tried or convicted for the crime. Perez and his former partner, David Mack, both with ties to Death Row Records and both implicated in L.A.'s notorious Ramparts police corruption scandal, have long denied responsibility for the murder.
