Ray J is back making headlines with a brand new mixtape single titled "Did That."
Featuring a thinly-veiled reference to his "work" with Kim Kardashian, the song (which is also available on iTunes for some reason) finds Ray singing heavily-autotuned vocals about regrets, one of which being "fucking bitches on camera." He never mentions Kim by name, but as TMZ points out, it's...

Bobby Shmurda has been getting plenty of celebrity endorsements, with everyone from Beyonce to Justin Bieber hitting his iconic "Shmoney Dance" in some way or another. Rihanna is the latest star to pay tribute, not quite Shmoney Dancing, but making up for it by turning up to "Hot Nigga" in a bikini with a blunt in hand-- in other words, in the most Rihanna way possible.
Since the tragic demise...

It’s hard out there for the life of a rappers wife or that ride-or-die chick. Once you beat out the competition; the gold diggers, video vixens and schemers, and officially accept the title, your public image changes, usually for the worse. The role of the rappers wife includes extended alone time, which can make you feel like a single mother, cheating allegations and a hedonistic lifestyle...
