BEYONCE , NOTORIOUS B.I.G. TIDBITS

 

Beyoncé is searching for an all-female band to tour with for her second solo album, B'Day.  She’s holding open auditions for keyboard players, bassists, guitarists, horn players, percussionists and drummers around the country on Monday (June 12). Musicians have to be at least 18, should have a "look," be prepared to re-create "Work It Out" as performed on the "Beyoncé: Live at Wembley" DVD and be able to pull off at least a one-minute solo. If you have what it takes, bring a headshot and résumé to auditions at New Jersey's SST; Atlanta's Crossover Entertainment Studios; Burbank, California's Center Staging; Chicago's Pressure Point Recording Studios; or Houston's VT2 Studios. Finalists from local auditions must be available to fly to New York to perform for Beyoncé later in the week and must be available to begin working by June 20.

 

Lawyers representing the city of Los Angeles in the long-running Notorious B.I.G. (born Christopher Wallace) wrongful-death lawsuit lashed out against the slain rapper's family in court papers filed Tuesday according to The Associated Press. The attorneys accused the Wallace family of going to "odious" and "absurd" lengths to "satisfy their ambition to extract hundreds of millions of dollars" from the municipality. The city's attorneys allege the Wallace family misled the court by claiming city attorneys and the Los Angeles Police Department withheld informant statements and additional evidence, linking two rogue cops to the rapper's unsolved 1997 shooting death. One of the family's attorneys, Perry Sanders, has denied any deliberate attempts to deceive the court. Dorothy Wolpert, one of the city's attorneys, suggested in the filing that the Wallace family lied because they "were not happy with the way the trial was developing," and asked U.S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper, who declared a mistrial in the wrongful-death case last July, to pave the way for a new trial to commence "as soon as [the court's] calendar will allow."
