If the bright light that came along with using naked photos as a PR stunt has already faded, then look no further than Twitter to reignite it. Yes, I’m talking to you, Yung Joc, who took to the micro-blogging site on Sunday to tell a twisted tale of a rabid dog, a trip to the hospital, and a coke-fueled fight between Katt Williams and DMX.
But he was just kidding! After all, he’s too busy suing Diddy, Bad Boy Records, and Block Entertainment (for failure to fulfill contractual obligations) to bother with promoting anything else (here and here).
But now, Russell Simmons has followed suit. Today, the Def Jam co-founder tweeted that he is planning on suing the company he helped build. No word as to why yet, but he did engage in a bit of name-calling (“bullies”).
However, everybody has to answer to somebody and Russell’s lawyers must have demanded he retract the impulsive statement, because the tweet has already been deleted.
Broadcasting potential legal affairs in 140 characters or less? Now, that’s hip-hop.
