Hip-Hop Rumors: LMAO!!!!!!!! Nicki Minaj Gets Ghetto At Steakhouse!

Nicki Minaj

They say you can’t buy class!

Nicki Minaj has come from rags to riches, but TMZ broke a story that is basically a sin in the world of foodies. “We” love A1 steak cause. We just do! It pretty much makes everything taste good with all those spices and salt. But, Nicki went and did a dastardly, dastardly deed! She was eating at BOA, a fancy restaurant and committed a sin. The upscale spot  had a chef cook her a steak. And Nicki, in the middle of her meal, demanded that somebody go and get her some damn A1 steak sauce. They did just that: THEY WENT OUTSIDE OF THE RESTAURANT AND GOT HER SOME FREAKIN’ A1 STEAK SAUCE. This is such a diss to the chef! LOL! That chef is probably on suicide watch right now. Anyway, Nicki clearly isn’t Hollywood yet so f**k American Idol. Rock on, K-Mart! She’s real as real gets. She still eats her food, no matter how fancy, with A1.

Man, A1 better get her an endorsement deal, because she reportedly ALWAYS eats her meat with A1. She has me thinking all freaky right now. Shame on me.

Man shot near Merchandise Mart


An unidentified 47-year-old man was brought to Northwestern Memorial Hospital  after he was shot in the head this morning near the Merchandise Mart.  It  appears to be a graze wound and police say he is expected to survive.

Early reports from the scene say the victim gave a thumbs-up as he was being  put into an ambulance.

Police say the victim worked in the West Mart Center, formerly known as the  Apparel Center, across the street from the Merchandise Mart.

He was apparently walking in through the dock area near the corner of Kinzie  and Kingsbury shortly before 6 a.m., when witnesses say they heard two quick  shots, saw the victim fall and a masked man in dark clothing run west across the  Kinzie Street bridge — then disappear.

Detectives made quick work of gathering evidence and clearing the scene.

Police have not released a description of the suspect or a motive for the  shooting.

The West Mart Center is home to a Holiday Inn, Comcast SportsNet, and the  Chicago Sun-Times.  It is across the street from the East Bank Club, where  Mayor Rahm Emanuel and other celebrities like Oprah Winfrey work out.

Aurora ends 2012 with no homicides

By Dan Hinkel, Chicago Tribune reporter9:28 p.m. CST, January 1, 2013

      While Chicagoans saw the city’s homicides rise past 500 last year, residents of the state’s second largest city, Aurora, quietly observed a milestone of their own — a year without a slaying.
The slaying-free year was Aurora’s first in recent times, police Sgt. Matt Thomas said.

     Aurora, a city of about 200,000 on the Fox River west of Chicago, notched 25 homicides in 2002, but totals have dropped recently, according to FBI statistics. There were five in 2009, four in 2010 and two in 2011, according to the FBI.
During the city’s more violent years, Aurora police and city officials blamed gang tensions, in part, for higher slaying totals, according to media reports. Thomas attributed the drop to “proactive police work.”
“We changed our tactics up and have been successful,” he said.

2 teens on West Side among 15 shot, 3 fatally, on New Year’s Day

 Staff report7:29 p.m. CST, January 1, 2013

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Two teenagers were shot and seriously wounded this afternoon in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, among at least 15 people shot since midnight Monday, three of them fatally, authorities said. Paramedics were called about 4:30 p.m. to the 2600 block of West Chicago Avenue for two people who’d been shot, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford.
They were both taken in serious to critical condition to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, said Langford.

Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala said the victims, both males in their teens, were shot in the chest and their conditions had stabilized at Stroger.

Earlier, a man was shot to death in the 4500 block of South Champlain Avenue, in what was believed to be the second homicide of the new year.

What appears to have been the third homicide of 2013 took place about two hours after the Champlain killing. About 4:56 p.m. in the Gage Park neighborhood, a man was shot in the chest in a possible drive-by shooting in the 5800 block of South Sacramento Avenue, Zala said about 7 p.m. He had no further details to release.

The man, identified as Devonta Grisson, 19, of the 6700 block of South Artesian Avenue, was declared dead on the scene at 5:05 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.


Gov. wants to toss NCAA sanctions against PSU

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s governor says he intends to file a federal antitrust lawsuit against the NCAA in an effort to overturn what he said were ”harsh penalties” against Penn State because of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Gov. Tom Corbett, flanked by members of his staff and current and former students and athletes from the school, says the NCAA punished students, the community and businesses around the university, not the former assistant football coach who molested children.

The sanctions imposed in July included a $60 million fine for child abuse prevention grants, a four-year bowl game ban for the university’s marquee football program and the forfeiture of 112 wins.

Corbett says the lawsuit to be filed later Wednesday would show the NCAA actions were overreaching and unlawful

49ers add Billy Cundiff, carrying two kickers

The San Francisco 49ers are so concerned about David Akers they are going to carry two kickers on their 53-man roster heading toward their divisional round playoff game in 1 ½ weeks.

Veteran Billy Cundiff was signed Tuesday giving coach Jim Harbaugh an option as preparations continue. It’s not definite the Niners will have two kickers on the 53-man roster come next weekend, but it’s certainly possible.

Cundiff won a two-man tryout with Justin Medlock, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. Akers has been inconsistent this season, particularly from beyond 40 yards, but Harbaugh has stuck with him to this point.

It was quite a competition as Cundiff made all 22 field-goal attempts and Medlock was 21 of 22, according to Barrows.

The Niners waived outside linebacker Eric Bakhtiari in order to make room for Cundiff.

Rehabbing Rose joins Bulls in Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. — Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose traveled with the team Tuesday night to Florida and will be with them all week as he continues his rehab from a torn left ACL.

This is the first trip with the Bulls for the former MVP since tearing his ACL in the first game of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers on April 28. Rose was rehabbing in the Los Angeles area when the Bulls faced the  Clippers on Nov. 17, but this will mark the first time Rose has accompanied the team and its medical staff since his surgery May 12.

It is still unclear as to when Rose will return to the floor, but Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau admitted recently that Rose has started doing the non-contact drills in practice. Thibodeau has stated repeatedly that Rose is still ‘a ways away’ from playing in a game and hasn’t started taking contact in practice.

Rose has been running and cutting for several weeks and seems to be in better spirits around the United Center and the Berto Center. The Bulls play the Orlando Magic on Wednesday and the Miami Heat on Friday.

As Rose continues his rehab, the Bulls shored up their point guard rotation by fully guaranteeing Nate Robinson‘s contract for the rest of the season, according to a source familiar with the situation. The Chicago Tribune reported earlier that Robinson’s deal would be guaranteed. The move did not come as a surprise given that Robinson, who signed a partially guaranteed deal as a free agent before the season, has been a spark-plug off the Bulls’ bench this year, scoring 11 points and dishing out four assists a game.
