Mike WiLL Made-It is ready to complete his Ransom 2 project, but he's missing the contribution from none other than Gucci Mane. Only problem, the Atlanta rapper has been incarcerated since 2013 on weapons charges. While he managed to stay prolific so far thanks to a few collaborators, his collaboration on Ransom 2 has been blocked by federal law enforcement officers, as Mike points out in a series of tweets:

Mike Twitter:

By Davis Hunyh

Remember when Jay Z made headlines two years ago for releasing a new cologne? Well, it looks like Hov's got "99 Problems" and the 'Gold' cologne company is one of them. The company is alleging Jay Z hasn't been holding up his part of the deal, which were mainly public appearances, failing to show up on several public outings including Good Morning America, a cover story with Women's Wear Daily and "rejected five prototypes for an 18-carat gold capped bottle designed by Jacob the Jeweler for a customer contests.” It should be noted, Hov’s cologne was the best-selling celebrity fragrance in 2014 and Perfumania Holdings Inc. were forcasting sales of $35 million in 2015, instead, only brought in roughly $6 million and Perfumania Holdings Inc. claims it’s because Jay wasn't properly promoting the fragrance.
