LL COOL J , LUPE FIASCO TIDBITS

Def Jam rapper LL Cool J appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Monday (March 12) night and confirmed his upcoming 50 Cent-helmed project, Exit 13, will be his last for the storied hip-hop label. "It's my last record on Def Jam, it's my 13th album, and I'm leaving," he told Kimmel. "My contract is up and it's time to move on." Previously the rapper hinted at his desire to defect due to Jay-Z's conflict of being both a Def Jam artist and the label's president, saying, "How am I gonna re-sign with the competition?" When pressed by Kimmel if his departure was indeed due to differences with Jay-Z, LL responded: "I wouldn't go that far with it," he said. "But for the most part ... I'm gone."

 

According to the Chicago Tribune, rapper Lupe Fiasco (born Wasalu Jaco) is expected to testify in the drug conspiracy trial of his 1st and 15th partner/music producer, Charles “Chili” Patton and his wife Inita. The couple was in court earlier in the month during opening statements in the trial, which is expected to last several weeks. The Pattons were charged in 2003 with running a drug enterprise that would have supplied more than 900 grams of heroin to buyers, said Assistant Cook County State's Atty. Patrick Coughlin. Court documents list the street value of the drugs at the time as nearly $950,000. Fiasco and Patton are partners on Fiasco’s record label, 1st and 15th, which released the rapper’s debut album Food and Liquor.
