CeeLo Green Falls Off Horse During Tribute Party To Shawty Lo

CeeLo Green hilariously fell off his horse during Wednesday’s (March 22) tribute party to late Atlanta legend Shawty Lo. While many might find it unfortunate that such a mishap occurred on a day of remembrance, people seemed more dedicated to celebrating his life through a good time. Moreover, CeeLo decided to show everyone up by arriving on horseback, and actually held his own for some time. However, then someone startled the horse, they took a tumble, and brought the Goodie Mob MC down with them. Radio personality Lil Bankhead of V-103 captured it all, but the crowd presumably kept enjoying what would’ve been Shawty’s 47th birthday.

Furthermore, the event took place at The BANK in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, and many other famous friends attended. For example, T.I. and DJ Street Greg were there, as were Lo’s D4L partners Fabo and Mook-B. Shawty Lo tragically passed away in 2016 after a single-car accident in Fulton County. His solo albums, such as Units in the City, contributed to his already impactful legacy as a member of ATL’s D4L. Their hit “Laffy Taffy” landed at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in 2006, and his solo track “Dey Know” made a big impact.

Tragically, CeeLo recently spoke on another close friend who left him far too soon: Gangsta Boo of Three 6 Mafia. Moreover, he shared their last text message exchanges, which was an invitation for her and the rest of the rap group to be on his next Gnarls Barkley album. “I know you fought sis we love you unconditionally and we still gone ride for you baby boo,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Boo is my sister,” the 47-year-old expressed. “She a big Homegirl to my son he hurting we hurting! She is the queen a icon and innovator those that knew her knew that she was extremely intelligent. Hard ,real but sweet and kind at the same time. We #family round here! We all came up together and put the #south on our backs at the same time and took it to the top. I’m glad she got the opportunity to represent articulate and speak so well on all of the major platforms here recently and was given her flowers and she knew she was loved.” As always, come back to HNHH for the latest on CeeLo Green. Rest In Peace Shawty Lo, Rest In Peace Gangsta Boo.


Diddy Honors Biggie Smalls On Anniversary Of His Passing

It’s been 26 years to the day since hip-hop lost one of its most impactful, resonant, and powerful voices. While the tragedy of his passing isn’t lost on anyone, millions around the world continue to keep The Notorious B.I.G. alive. For example, Diddy made an Instagram post on Thursday (March 9) honoring Biggie on the anniversary of his tragic death in Los Angeles. “There will NEVER be another,” Puff wrote as a caption to a video of a B.I.G. interview. “The GREATEST RAPPER OF ALL TIME. Today we celebrate and honor you king. Love and miss you!!”

In that clip, the legendary MC spoke on maintaining his originality, freshness, and unique voice as an artist. “Don’t be the fool to just sit back and do it because somebody else is doing it,” the Brooklyn native expressed. “Because those of you who do just gon’ follow in somebody else’s footsteps, and you just gon’ be a shadow. Who wanna be a shadow for the rest of their life, you know what I’m saying? If you got a lil’ something’ that you know how to do, progress that and keep trying. I mean, God knows what could happen. That’s what I did. Just kept on walking, just happened to get to the right ends.”

Most recently, Nas spoke on how Biggie influenced his classic album It Was Written, shortly before the anniversary of his death arrived. “Biggie made it different, where you can’t just be the hot dude that they liked from New York to Connecticut to Virginia,” he expressed. “You got to hit the mainstream. You got to touch the world.” Elsewhere in the interview, he said that they inspired each other in many different ways. For example, Nas working with Dr. Dre possibly opened up the doors for Biggie to work with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.

Meanwhile, this year will also mark what would’ve been Big’s 51st birthday in May. Last year, Lil’ Kim penned an inspiring message for his 50th. “He was more than just a rapper more than an artist; he was an educator, he was a poet, obviously a writer. He was a prophet, he was here to do more than just make some songs or record a couple of albums, which is at the end of the day, that’s what he did. And he did way more than that in his spare time.” Join us in honoring Biggie Smalls with your favorite tracks, albums, or moments in the comments, and if you don’t know, now you know.

De La Soul Share Tribute To Trugoy The Dove

De La Soul just shared a touching Instagram tribute to their fallen member David Jude Jolicoeur, better known as Dave, J.D. Dove, or Trugoy the Dove. Moreover, member Maseo penned a dedication on the group’s official Instagram page, along with a picture of them signing their first record deal with Tommy Boy. “Dave, thank you so much for being in my life,” Plug Three wrote. “Although you and I would argue like hell, we would both admit when we were wrong and totally come full circle and say, ‘I Love You.’ I want to truly thank you for having the birds eye view of our collective vision to be a group.”

“Before Trugoy The Dove, I met J.D. Dove aside being called Dave in 1985,” he continued. “I remember your mom calling you Dove, so you’ve always had wings. So go on and fly into the light, Merce and I will make sure your legacy is well preserved. ‘We Are De La Soul’ for life and after life, but obviously, it will never be the same. On one end I’m happy you no longer have to suffer the pain of your condition. On the other hand I’m extremely upset at the fact that you’re not here to celebrate and enjoy what we worked and fought so hard to achieve.”

Also, Posdonous penned a message of his own on their page as well, calling Dave “the heart of the group. You brought so much creativity, energy, and passion to our music. Your influence will be felt for years to come. Your passing is a great loss not only to us, but also to the entire hip-hop community. You were a true artist who used music to inspire and uplift others. You will be deeply missed by all who knew you.”

“We would like to say thank you Dave for being a big brother,” Plug One concluded. “Thank you for being a friend, thank you for the wise words placed in your verses, thank you for the music you produced that is loved by so many. Thank you for never wanting to compromise the quality of our brand, thank you for helping us become a group that will remain etched in the timeline of hip hop culture as well as the fabric of music.” Read Posdonous’ tribute below and join HNHH in celebrating the life and indelible impact of Plug Two.
Long Live Trugoy The Dove.

De La Soul’s Tribute From Posdonous

Ice-T Says He Almost Turned Down Grammys Appearance

Ice-T says that he nearly turned down Questlove’s request to have him perform at the 2023 Grammy Awards. Ice-T was among the dozens of artists to take the stage during the hip-hop 50 tribute performance. He reflected on the show during an interview with ET beforehand. He says that it’s good “to see all these legends together and you’re not here for a funeral.”

“Questlove calls me up and he says, ‘All right, you gotta come to L.A. this weekend… It’s a big performance, I got you in the lineup,’” he recalled. “And I was still hesitant ’cause it’s a long travel, But then he says, ‘You don’t want to be sitting at home watching this show, saying you should’ve been there.”

“Real talk, unfortunately, that’s usually the only time we all get together and see each other,” Ice-T shared. “So the Grammys brought us together.” He then reflected on days when there was no representation for hip-hop at the Grammys. “I got one of the early GRAMMYs with Quincy Jones, you know, but I felt Quincy kinda snuck us in the backdoor.”

From there, he compared the experience to that of last year’s Super Bowl. Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar all performed at the event. Ice-T continued: “They got everybody, they got all the hoodlums in here. We don’t get invited to this type of party! The people that were raised by us are now the people making the decisions, and so what a difference a day makes. You see Dr. Dre doing the Super Bowl with 50 Cent, Eminem, all the outlaws. That means that the culture has really broadened to where the people in power are our children.”

In addition to Ice-T, Run-D.M.C., Rakim, Public Enemy, and many more legends made appearances on Sunday night. Younger artists such as Lil Baby and Lil Uzi Vert also took the stage. LL Cool J hosted the tribute while Questlove directed and co-produced it.
