We’re used to male artists tooting their own horn when it comes to what clothes, cars, jewelry, and houses they can afford, not to mention the women they can pull. We’re even used to hearing rappers like Kanye, Jay-Z, and Nas referring to themselves as “the best rapper alive” but now their modesty has been flushed down the drain in a whole different ball game; their skills in the bedroom.
None of us should take everything that comes out of these artists mouths as fact, but when a man is constantly making references to pleasuring a woman with a “hurricane tongue” or having women feeling like he invented sex, we simply can’t help but wonder; do they really got it like that?! Here are 15 artists who don’t shy away from mentioning the way they can get your juices flowing in the bedroom, on the staircase, on the balcony… and the list goes on and on:
When it comes to business, Ludacris doesn’t play. The rapper/actor recently filed a lawsuit against a Texas couple claiming they are infringing upon his record label’s namesake, Disturbing tha Peace, reports EUR.
According to the suit, Ludacris claims Demetri and Donna Evans-Brown are illegally using the phrase “Disturb the Pace” for their audio equipment business and musical recordings, says TMZ. Luda feels the phrase is too close to the phrase he trademarked in 2003, “Disturbing tha Peace.” He wants the court to order the couple to stop using the phrase. He is also seeking unspecified damages.
Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges founded Disturbing tha Peace in 2000 along with his manager, Chaka Zulu, and Zulu’s brother Jeff Dixon. Since Luda was having trouble landing a record deal, they started the label to release not only his music but artists from the “dirty South.” The label is now a subsidiary of Universal Music Group, and is distributed by The Island Def Jam Music Group.
According to Forbes, Ludacris is worth $12 million, earning that wealth from other business ventures like voiceovers for RadioShack, music sales, roles in films, and other projects. The rapper also owns a small equity state in Soul By Ludacris, a headphone brand, and half of Conjure, a cognac line, as reported by The Network Journal.

We already know Robert DeNiro loves the brown sugar so it really shouldn’t be a surprise that he’s hanging out with rappers on a random Thursday night, but then again it is. Probably the most unlikely of characters to attend rapper Young Jeezy’s It’s Tha World mixtape album release party in the ATL last night was in fact the actor who is every bit of an Italian-Irish New Yorker.
More interesting than his attendance though, is this pic of DeNiro giving Ludacris an earful — but of what we don’t know. Last time Robert was having a heart to heart with a rapper, he was setting Jay-z straight about reneging on a deal they had set in place. Though this interaction looks a little more lighthearted, we’d be lying if we said it didn’t cross our minds that ol’ Rob might be whispering a not-so-kind threat in Luda’s ear, or, who knows, maybe he’s just asking for directions to Magic City so he can see some skrippers.
Tell us your take on this uncanny convo and caption this pic for us.
If only Kelly Rowland put as much effort into her own solo albums (you know putting out more singles,making videos for her songs, and keeping up the momentum after songs like Motivation hit it big) as she did into playing the object of affection for rappers in their music videos, we think her singing career would be much better off. But apparently, the girl doesn’t care too much because she’s getting paid despite her non-focus on music. But we digress, check out this new video, in which she plays the love interest of Ludacris, in his new single “Representin.”
Despite it’s steamy tones, Luda and Kelly pretty much keep it rated PG in terms of on-screen affection. The video is well done nonetheless with a pretty good, relaxed beat to match. Kelly sounds great of course.
Let us know what you think. Is this a pass or play?
Wow, how things have changed! It seems like just yesterday when it was the cool thing for men in hip-hop to wear their white T-shits down to their knees with the baggy jeans sitting below their waste and a fitted cap to match. Or in an effort to be different, come off doing the absolute most. Well, it ain’t cool anymore! Some of the industry’s hottest male celebs have completely changed their style. They went from doing the least with their ensembles to tailored suits and a fresh fade! This is not to say that they looked bad that way, but damn do they look good this way!
We know that not everyone in a relationship wants to get married so we don’t even have to tackle that subject. But many of the women – some famous in their own right – on this list have been with their men for quite some time and have gone through many ups and downs just to stick around as a girlfriend. Do you think any of them will get married? Do you think they even want to? Check it out…
We’re not sure how much of that $10,000 came out of whose wallet, but we bet the majority of the cash was courtesy of “Southern Hospitality” rapper Ludacris.’
Wednesday night, he and his lady, Eudoxie, Monica, rapper Lil Scrappy, and DJ Infamous made it rain car payments, house notes, and school loans at Diamonds of ATL in the good ol’ dirty.
Though we’ve seen time and time again, Atlanta entertainers feel there’s no need for a special occasion to prove it ain’t trickin’ on strippers if you got it, the A-listers did come out for a purpose that night. They were there to celebrate Imfamouses’ 10-year anniversary as a DJ.
As you can see from the pics, the dancers weren’t the only ones working up a sweat. Luda was clearly perspiring over all of the T&A surrounding him, or perhaps it was the thought of dropping that kind of cash when he hasn’t had an album release or movie role in years. What he did have was a book bag stuffed with singles strapped tightly to his chest to make sure the strippers were the only one’s who reaped what he sowed. TMZ also has more pics of the hilarious expressions on his face as he threw out cash. He clearly had a good night.
FYI, if Ludacris becomes one of those dudes crying broke 10 years from now, these photos will be thrown back in his face. Also, Monica’s hubby Shannon Brown was nowhere to be found which makes me wonder if she don’t play that.

Some of the biggest hit songs contain lyrics we wouldn’t repeat to our mothers. Many of our favorite joints can be raunchy and even misogynistic, but sometimes a good beat is, well, a good beat. Take a look at this list of nasty songs that killed it on the charts
Missy Elliot “Work it”
Misdemeanor should have been fined for this dirty anthem. In 2002, Missy Elliot hit number two in the country with the lead single from her fourth album “Under Construction.” The video for the song also was a success: it gave Missy the 2003 MTV Music Award for Best Video.
Not on the bed, lay me on your sofa
Phone before you come, I need to shave my chocha
You do or you don’t or you will or won’t you
Go downtown and eat it like a vulture
We’ve all had a beef or two with someone we felt have done us dirty or stabbed us in the back. These celebs unfortunately let their problems play out in the court of public opinion and we all had front row seats. Some of them were actually friends at one point.
Can you remember your biggest beef with someone?Let’s see if you remember these…
