EXCLUSIVE: Jay-Z Talks With YBF About Business

Jay-Z and Lisa Price shout out TheYBF.com--Watch in HD here.

Jay-Z was here in D.C. all week and TheYBF.com had the fabulous opportunity to have a one-on-one in-person chat with Mr.


As you all know, YBF was on the scene for several Inaugural balls and events and parties over the last several days. Most celebs were nothing short of fabulous, YBF lovers, or just having a great time all around. But we came across a few celebs who need to recognize what's really hood. Here's the scoop: At the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball, Ashanti was being quite "Hollywood" and "didn't feel like posing for pictures" while in her VIP area. Not even for the sponsors of the event. And even frowned up and shooed people away. I find it odd--though--that as soon as the "other" type of Hollywood media asked for pics of her, she quickly obliged. I'm not saying Ashanti--but I'm just saying. Funny that I didn't know who it was she was so enthralled in her couch convo with until I saw the foolywang black and white fur coat on one person and way too small "cocktail" dress on the other. It became apparent it was Momager and sister Shi Shi. SMDH. No Nelly in site either. Basically people just don't recognize which media are really the ones keeping their names in the media... We hear that Beyonce was upset that she couldn't get to her hubby's concert rehearsal Monday afternoon because all of the streets around the venue were cut off. She reportedly pitched a fit because she didn't want to trek the 4 blocks in her stilettos in the extreme cold. the cops didn't care who she was and weren't budging. So her security turned around, took her and Jay-Z back tot heir hotel at the Mandarin Oriental, just for her to change into some more walk-worthy shoes. Gotta love it. More ish when you read the rest...

Oh Ray-J+EXCLUSIVE: Chris Paul's Baby Mama Drama Continued!

Sigh.  Some things just are not about to change in '09: Ray-J's new reality show is officially official.  It's called "For The Love Of Ray-J" and premieres Feb. 2nd at 10:30/9:30pm cst.    He's already named his girls and they're some doozies--upgraded from ish like Seesinz and Buckeey.  He's got Caviar and Cashmere and Unique and others.  Check out VH1 for the rest of the up close and personals with the "ladies".  Ray-J insists that his sow is the un-Flavor of Love and he respects his girls--and brings them on upscale trips like helicopter rides.  Stop laughing.  Make that money Ray-J. In other news, a story hit the net about my crush NBA baller Chris Paul and his girlfriend's new pregnancy.  That story said it was planned and the two are happier than pie--even though N.O. Hornet Chris may get disowned from his fam a la Kobe Bryant.  But we've got the real story from our source back home in New Orleans who is extremely close to the situation as well. Allegedly nothing was planned, and the girlfriend, Jada, has been trying to "trap" Chris for years, and no one except for Jada is happy about this situation.  Our exclusive lowdown is after the jump...
