Word on the net is that Lil Phat from Trill ENT. was shot and killed! News broke on twitter that Lil Phat was involved in a shooting and has been pronounced dead. There is no new source on the incident yet, so we can only hope that this is just another twitter hash tag rumor. Webbie & Lil Trill have both sent out tweets paying respect to Lil Phat, so that is only raising more eyebrows. This story is still developing…
RIP TO MY LIL BROTHER PHAT! LIFE SO FUCKED UP! TRILL4LIFE

With the Hot 97 controversy dying down a little, Nicki is moving ahead with her plans for the single releases from her Gold album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. After being almost forced to answer by her fans, Nicki gave in to reveal that “Champion” featuring Drake, Young Jeezy and Nas will serve as the next Urban single from her sophomore disc which will be accompanied by a video.
It’s been an up and down couple of days for Nicki Minaj. On Sunday (June 3), she backed out of her Hot 97 Summer Jam performance after a perceived slight from the station’s personality, Peter Rosenberg. Today (June 6), though, her album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, has gone gold.
The sophomore effort from the rap titan sold 15,300 units this week, bringing the two month total to 508,100. Those one-week numbers were good enough to help the album jump nearly 10 slots on the Billboard 200, as it landed at No. 13 this week, after coming in at No. 22 previously.
Only one other rap album appeared in the top 30 of the charts, as Atlanta trio Travis Porter’s debut offering, From Day 1, hit No. 16. The strip club-ready music moved 14,300 copies, and was the fourth highest debut on the charts overall. The single “Ayy Ladies,” featuring Tyga continues to rest comfortably on the singles charts, while the follow up, “Ride Like That,” featuring Jeremih, is steadily gaining momentum. B.o.B’s Strange Clouds (No. 34) and Drake’s Take Care (No. 43) were the only two other rap albums to reach the top 50.
A bit further down the charts, both Kanye West and Lauryn Hill reemerged. Yeezy’s Graduation, first released back in 2007, sold 3,300 copies this week—good for No. 144 overall—after moving under 1,000 discs last week. Similarly, Lauryn Hill’s seminal debut, 1998′s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, hit No. 180 this week, after selling 2,600 copies.
