Arrest Made In Dolla's Murder

A Georgia man was booked Tuesday on suspicion of murdering up-and-coming Atlanta rapper Dolla in a brazen, broad daylight shooting outside an upscale West Hollywood mall.
Dolla, 21, was a popular protégé of chart-topping hip hop singer Akon, rapped on a 2007 single with T-Pain and was in Los Angeles working on a new album with Akon's Konvict Muzik label.
The suspect, Aubrey Louis Berry, 23, shot Dolla in the head at around 3 p.m. Monday in the parking area of the popular Beverly Center mall, cops said.
He fled the scene before officers arrived but was taken into custody less than two hours later at LAX airport.
"He was carrying a loaded firearm in the ticketing area when officers walked up and said 'Do you know what this is all about?' He got up, and said 'Yes I do. I have a gun in my waistband, don't shoot," Sgt. Jim Holcomb of the Los Angeles World Airports Police told the Daily News.
Holcomb said airport authorities got a description of the suspect around 4 p.m. Monday, and an unarmed traffic officer spotted Berry about 15 minutes later.
A woman entered the same terminal and said she was Berry's girlfriend, Holcomb said. Police questioned the woman and also were investigating a car returned to a Hertz rental lot at the airport that may have been the getaway vehicle, he said.
Dolla, whose real name is Roderick Anthony Burton, was waiting in the mall's parking valet area with another rapper, D.J. Shabbazz, when the shooting took place, Dolla's publicist Sue Vannasing told the Los Angeles Times.
She said Dolla had been involved in an altercation with other passengers on a recent flight from Atlanta to Los Angeles, but it's not clear if that incident was related to the shooting.
Cops have not released a motive.

Dizzee Rascal Drives A Mini

Dizzee Rascal says that despite being one of the biggest pop stars in the UK right now, he's still drives a Mini - because he refuses to pay high car insurance. The rapper, whose single 'Bonkers' is on its way to becoming one of the biggest-selling tracks of the year, says he's still wary of the credit crunch.

"I drive a mini right now," he admitted, adding "It just don't make no sense to throw that kind of money away on insurance" (The Sun).

Is Keeping It Real Just A Catch Phrase?

Early last week reports of Virgina resident Anthony Gonzalez had been charged for his involvement in a 10 million dollar drug ring. Gonzalez had been the manager of the Clipse, a duo knowing for their unique style of cocaine raps. Shortly after the announcement Malice released a video distancing himself from the drug trade that he raps about. Insisting that his his real life and the lifestyle he raps about are 2 different worlds. During his explanation of it just being entertainment Malice confirmed something that many of us already know, rappers are full of shit.

Since it's inception, hip hop has placed an emphasis on authenticity. This is one of the key elements that has given hip hop it's appeal, it's candidness and brutal honesty not seen in other genres. But does authenticity in hip hop still exist? The success of an artist like Asher Roth who doesn't fit the textbook image of a hip hop artist, nor does he try to, speaks volumes. The public appears to think no less of an artist because they don't fit a stereotype. That said one can question whether Roth's hit single "I Love College" would have had the same success if he was black.

The innovation in hip hop is gone and the industry has essentially become a game of follow the leader where everyone attempts to copy the success of past acts through imitation rather than originality. But can we really blame the artists? The success and popularity of artists like Gucci Mane who is more known for the authenticity of his street life than actual talent doesn't really help the situation. Gucci Man is never going to win an award for his musical or rapping talents, however he did kill someone.

As Jay-z once said, artists are afraid to be themselves. With doubt's of the marketability of their real lives artist often turn to the reliable and tested image, drug dealer. It is the music BUSINESS after all and at the end of the day and the point is to sell a product and make money.

Is authenticity still a requirement in hip hop or is it just a memory of the past that old heads and backpackers keep clinging to?
