What Happened This Year in Hip Hop...2010
The year 2010 has come to a screeching halt, and quite fast it seems; so I decided to reflect on what happened in my favorite sector of entertainment which is hip-hop. The year 2010 has been quite a year for some of our hip-hop entertainers. There is no doubting that this year has had it share of up and downs within the music entertainment industry in general; from T.I and Tiny's arrest to the untimely death of Teena Marie, the year 2010, has been truly remarkable for some, and unforgetable for others. As a reflected on some of the incidents that occured this year, I decided to hub them. I would also like to know what are some of your most memorable moments in hip-hop for the year 2010. Please join me in taking a trip down memory lane into the five of my most memorable moments in hip-hop 2010.
Rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny goes to jail....
Let me first start by saying that I love T.I., and it just seems that he can't get a break. I have always been a fan of his music but, I am loving the man that he has become. The conceded, hot headed, extremely handsome hip hop entertainer, has evolved into quite a man. I admire his effort's to change, and his strong faith. I was deeply saddened, when I heard that he had gotten in trouble again. I personally think that he's targeted; nevertheless he always seems to prevail. I know that he's sorry but, like the man that I know he is, he accepts full responsibility for his actions, as he steadfastly approaches the road to redemption. I wish him the best as I will continue to forgive him and support him and his music. I love his music, and absolutely adore his persona. He is extremely talented and remorseful, which both reflect in his latest debut with featuring Chris Brown. The Song is entitled " Get Back Up". If u forgot what happened with he and Tiny allow me to sum it up.
In September, 2010, L.A. Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Rapper T.I., (Clifford Harris)and his wife Tiny, (Tameka Cottle), were pulled over after making an illegal U-turn, and that police who had stopped the rapper and his wife smelled marijuana in his car. The Sheriff’s Office also confirms that the controlled substance discovered in the vehicle was Ecstasy.
While on probation, T.I.,who is currently en route back to Atlanta, is prohibited from committing any crimes or possessing any controlled substances, and he’s required to submit drug tests and undergo drug and alcohol treatment. So an arrest on drug possession while on probation could lead to more time behind bars. Will that be the case here? Only time will tell, as the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Atlanta says T.I.’s case is currently under review. “The probation office is in the process of determining what happened and will make a recommendation regarding Mr. Harris when they have all the facts,” U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates says. Once the probation office has thoroughly reviewed the details and context of the case, it will decide whether to bring it back to the U.S. Attorney’s office, which originally prosecuted the rapper on the federal gun charges.
Rapper Lil Wayne Finally Goes To Jail
After dodging several sentencing attempts,rapper, born Dwayne Carter Jr., ( Lil Wayne),appeared in a Manhattan courtroom on Monday (March 8),2010, where he was placed in handcuffs and taken into custody to start serving his term immediately. He plead guilty in October to attempted gun possession and admitted to having a loaded weapon on his tour bus in 2007.
T. I. Weds Tiny
After exchanging vows in a Miami Beach courthouse on Friday, T.I. and Tiny celebrated their marriage with a fairytale wedding on the exclusive Star Island on Saturday (July 31).The bride and groom both wore white and arrived in a horse-drawn carriage. They were joined by some of their celebrity friends including Usher, Nelly, Ashanti, Jermaine Dupri, Angela Simmons, Bow Wow, Diamond, and Kim Porter. Monica, Antonia “Toya” Carter, and Kandi Burruss were bridesmaids. El DeBarge serenaded the newlyweds before the magical evening culminated with fireworks over the water. Mr. and Mrs. Harris jetted off to Atlanta and Las Vegas where the party continued
Ironically Enough Swiss Beatz Wed Alicia Keys on the same day that T.I. Wedded Tiny
Friends and family gathered to celebrate the marriage of Alicia Keys and Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean on the French island of Corsica on Saturday (July 31). The pregnant bride wore a white one-shoulder Vera Wang gown and the groom looked sharp in a Tom Ford tux and Christian Louboutin Oxfords.
Teena Marie's Untimely Death
Perhaps the most memorable for me of 2010, is the death of Teena Marie, a Grammy Award-nominated R&B singer died at the age of 54 while in her home which is located in Pasadena. Apparently Marie died peacefully in her sleep, during Sunday nap.Teena (Tina) Marie leaves a daughter behind named Alia Rose who is best known for singing under the pseudonym “Rose Le Beau”.
Although there has been no official cause of death released as of yet, there is speculation that it was due to a grand mal seizure because of the violent muscle contractions and as well a loss of consciousness which presented only one month prior to her death.
