Big Boi credits a "music fairy" for leaking two collaborations with partner Andre 3000, that OutKast's label, Jive, tried to block from release. "They wouldn't let me put [the songs] on the album. But somehow it ended up on the Internet. I was happy, the fans wanted some new music. It's like a music fairy somewhere that's on the sides of the fans, [the tracks were] mixed and everything."

Video vixen/rapper Gloria Velez dissed Nicki Minaj on the radio recently, saying "I don't respect anything [Nicki does]. Did you see the MTV Music Awards? She was horrible, that was garbage...She can't even shake her fake butt, she can't dance, she sounded wack live. It's ok, she gets her butt implants, but it's a little ridiculous. It's not sexy anymore, you just see straight sex. I don't see her as classy or a barbie at all." She's no barbie, yo. [HipHopWired]
