So the entertainment world kind of has me at a stump right now. So just out of curiosity i was wondering what you guys thought. So in case you stumble upon this go ahead leave a comment, don’t be shy 😉
It seems as if the entire story was not told, or maybe even the truth was not told in regards to Kanye West’s “controversial” album cover and Wal-Mart banning it. See what Wal-Mart has to say about it after the jump.
Here is the official statement from Wal-Mart:
“We’re excited about Kanye West’s new album and we look forward to carrying it in our stores on November 22nd,” a Walmart spokesperson says in a statement provided to EW. “As always, it’s our standard practice to carry the edited parental advisory version. We did not reject the cover artwork and it was never presented to us to view.”
Is he trying to stir up controversy since the release date is the same date as Nicki Minaj and Lloyd Banks?
Raz-B finally spoke with Hip Hop Weekly’s Contributor Lathleen to answer all the questions that you want to hear. Why did B2K break up? How were you sexual abused and by who? When was the last time you spoke to Omarian? Plus more, his new album, which hits stores on 10/26, his 5-year-old son and his engagement to his finance. Raz-B held absolutely no bars, he is telling the truth, the WHOLE truth, let’s see if you can handle it.

With a troubled past, an unusual childhood and rumors swirling, he is not afraid to risk his public image to get a long kept message across to the world. Having been mislead by past mentors (Chris Stokes) and feeling forced to sexual interact with him along with other label-mates (Marques Houston), Thornton says “I’m not gay at all,” he continues “I don’t want anyone to feel sympathy for me, I just want some clarity so I can move on with my life.” Now engaged with a five-year-old son Thornton firmly speaks to me when talking about him, “it’s a whole different energy.” The truth and the message is what Thornton refuses to let haunt him. Phoning into Hip Hop Weekly he speaks on every last misconception the public may have, he starts from the very beginning:

She may have a disability but she looks stunting. Her name is Tanya Kiewitz a 35-year-old graphic designer who suffers from having her left arm end a little below her elbow. In an effort to bring awareness to all people with a disability she posed TOPLESS! Take a look.
This was to change the way people view handicap people. When you see this ad, is it possible to just stare at her in the eyes? Well that’s what she is requesting. The ad is saying “look at me in the eyes..I said the eyes” very powerful!
