Are Gold Teeth on the Come Up?

Forget about Master P, Nelly, and Snoop Dogg, gold teeth have gone to the girls. The latest blinging accessory for smile is a little gold. Teenage girls are the fastest-growing segment of their customer base.

"Three years ago, if a girl came in here and placed an order, it woulda been like, ‘Whaaat?’ " said Martin Montoya, who makes molds for the ladies at Gold Tooth Masters in Oakland. "Now girls are 15 percent of our business."

Today, grills (false tooth covers made of metal)are a multimillion-dollar business with so much competition — from storefront shops, the Internet and a small but growing number of dentists — that makers have dropped prices to less than $20 per tooth.

So cop your grillz ladies, goldgrilllz.net

Louis Vuitton files lawsuit on celebrities…Justin Bieber.

Louis Vuitton is getting sick and tired of celebrities hiring tailors to rip off their brand.

Justin Bieber wore a jacket to the Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas that caught the eye of fashionistas who thought the jacket was custom made by the iconic brand. A rep in the LV corporate office told reporters “The jacket Bieber is wearing is a cheap knockoff of the Louis Vuitton brand.” The rep pointed out the red LEVI’s tag on the jacket pocket as proof that the jacket is a counterfeit.

Too Short, in XXL Column, Gives Boys Advice To Turn Girls Out …

Really y’all!?

Hip Hop magazine XXL came up with the genius idea to give 45-year-old rapper, Todd Anthony Shaw aka Too Short an advice column for young boys.

[caption id=”” align=”alignleft” width=”168” caption=”Todd Anthony Shaw aka Too Short”][/caption]

Keep in mind that Too Short is known for his sexually explicit rhymes in songs like “Freaky Tales.” The rapper was arrested for assault in 2010 after an altercation related to his alleged attempt to bring underage girls backstage into his dressing room at a performance.

[caption id=”” align=”alignnone” width=”147” caption=”Vanessa Satten, the editor-in-chief of XXL “][/caption]

Vanessa Satten, the editor-in-chief of XXL really hit it out of the park  with this one but it gets worse.

Too Short took no time to get down and dirty by teaching   a process of “mind manipulation. The video has since been removed.While upbeat, child-themed music plays in the background. Too Short  directed women off camera to “cover their ears” to avoid being offended. Short then describes a scenario in graphic detail. “You push her up against the wall,” he continued. “You take your finger and put a little spit on it and you stick your finger in her underwear and you rub it on there and watch what happens.”

Too “When you get to late middle school, early high school and you start feeling a certain way about the girls… I’m gonna tell you a couple tricks,” Too Short said in the video. “A lot of the boys are going to be running around trying to get kisses from the girls… We’re going way past that. I’m taking you to the hole.”

Then, the 45-year-old rapper, whose real name is Todd Anthony Shaw, asks women off camera to “cover their ears” to avoid being offended. Short then describes a scenario in graphic detail. “You push her up against the wall,” he continued. “You take your finger and put a little spit on it and you stick your finger in her underwear and you rub it on there and watch what happens.”

Charing Ball, cultural critic and writer for The Root, questions why Too Short was given a platform for “giving fatherly advice” in the first place — particularly by a white female editor. “That is like Essence magazine hiring Don Imus to give black women hair care advice, or Rick Santorum being invited to an LGBT rights organization luncheon to speak about marriage equality,” she told theGrio.

Apparently, others felt equally outraged by the video and a petition calling for the ousting of XXL’s editor Vanessa Satten recently sprang up.

3GM wonders along with Charing Ball, cultural critic and writer for The Root, why Too Short was given a platform for “giving fatherly advice” in the first place — particularly by a white female editor. “That is like Essence magazine hiring Don Imus to give black women hair care advice, or Rick Santorum being invited to an LGBT rights organization luncheon to speak about marriage equality,”

Since the video came under fire, both Too Short and XXL editor Vanessa Satten have apologized.

“I want to apologize to anyone I may have offended with the XXL video interview I recently did,” Too Short stated. “When I got on camera I was in Too $hort mode and had a lapse of judgement.I would never advise a child or young man to do these things, it’s not how I get down. Although I have made my career on dirty raps, I have worked over the years to somewhat balance the content of my music with giving back to the community.”

Satten, XXL’s Editor-in-Chief, also apologized for the video’s release. “There has been some recent controversy surrounding a video interview with Too $hort that posted on XXLMag.com last week,” she said in a statement posted on the magazine’s website.

“Many readers found the tone and content of the interview to be offensive and were angered that it was allowed to post on the website,” Satten said. “I agree with their perspective. I do not see all content before it goes live. When I saw this video, I was truly offended and thought it crossed the line. I had it taken down immediately. I am disappointed that an employee decided to post it and I am putting internal procedures in place to make sure content like this does not go on the site. The video goes against my value system and represents poor judgment on behalf of the individual who posted it.”

It’s a mans world, and  nowhere is this more evident than in the world of Hip Hop.

New Sounds: Taylor J “Mental Dope”


Recently I’ve been introduced to a new artist, Taylor J. Straight from Minneapolis, Taylor has always been a fan of rap but began writing and doing his own rhymes at 11. Once Taylor J began high school, he joined a group with two other rappers after impressing them with a freestyle in the cafeteria. They performed at talent shows and other community events, but the other members stopped recording as they got older. Taylor J moved to Las Vegas for several months to pursue his music full-time—a trip that he says raised his ambitions. An 18 -hour drive from Minnesota and a dream brought Taylor J to the Atlanta’s music scene. “The Taylor J Takeover” campaign is establishing its place in Atlanta.He just let out his mix tape Mental Dope hosted by DJ Holiday. Luckily 3GM got the hookup and we have exclusive pictures of his release mix tape release party at Tongue and Groove Nightclub. Make sure you guys go download the mix tape! Check out the pics below:

New Music: Kanye West-Theraflu

The music god that is Kanye West dropped a new song entitled Theraflu. Spilling his heart out, he reveals  his love for Kim Kardashian,and admits he fell for her when she was with Kris Humphries. Personally I’m not surprised. The whole “we’re just friends” bull crap they kept trying to tell everyone never worked for me. Click below to hear the song:
