Dang! Can a man just order a burger and fries with two packs of ketchup without getting arrested? Well according to TMZ, “Love and Hip Hop” star Rich Dollaz was a arrested Sunday night outside of Edgewater, New Jersey police headquarters. Supposedly Rich Dollaz and a few friends double parked their vehicle just to make a quick run inside of Five Guys to grab a burger and jet. Well I guess they weren’t quick enough because police went over to write Dollaz a ticket and when they ran the license plate the officer discovered there was a warrant out for his arrest. Guess what it was for? CHILD SUPPORT! Come to find out the homie Rich Dollaz owes $11,000 in child support. Cops arrested Rich Dollaz and hauled him to Hudson County Jail where he’s still in custody.

[Platinum DJ of the Week] @THEDJDOLLAR

Hey Y’all!

It’s Your Gyrl, Ms. Carmen aka Platinum Voice PR bringing another Platinum DJ to you! I had the pleasure of meeting DJ Dollar at the Core DJs Retreat in Miami and  in Jackson, MS. I must say that I was very impressed with this young man. Please take the time to read this and I’m sure you’ll be impressed as well.






Success has been written and etched in stone, when your birth name is Dollar. Achieving aspirations and goals are DJ Dollar’s focus and settling for less is not an option for this West African native.  Dollar  Agbemadon, better known as DJ Dollar was born in Accra, Ghana on September 23, 1992 to Joseph and Monique Agbemadon. Dollar, the youngest of three siblings, has spent most of his time in schools in Ghana; Crown Prince Academy, Morning Star school and Lincoln Community School.  Currently, he is attending West Virginia University majoring Business administration with a minor in PR and French.


Throughout the years, DJ Dollar has devoted a significant amount of time and energy to music. Devoting a significant amount of time and energy to music in his teens and his love for the art of DJing gave him a strong positive affirmation to pursue this as a full-time business. In 2005, DJ Dollar was given the opportunity to turn his admiration into reality at a college party in Brittany, France. “By simply performing a baby scratch several times on the record, I felt a strong positive feeling that run through my body” says DJ Dollar.

In 2008, completing school was a high priority, so Dollar had to focus on his education. Promoters began to hire him for high school dances, picnics and talent shows in 2010. This was a confirmation that DJ Dollar has a career awaiting him.  “Its a business, my main goal is to keep dj’ing, grow my brand and reputation; but on the business side of things, I have the dream of opening a high-class lounge in West Africa”.

In 2011, after graduating high school, he wasn’t able to start college due to a series of family misfortunes. However, this didn’t discourage him, it encouraged him to press forward. DJ Dollar contacted his mentor from Ghana, DJ Peekay, and began interning as a junior DJ, to see how to control the crowd with music.  DJ Peekay extended an invitation to his home to teach Dollar the basic method of beat matching.  “It was the only instructional session he has ever given me to date. He speaks in parables every single time; let’s me explore on my own, like how he learnt on his own and he has made it to the top” says Dollar. With limited funds, he bought a Numark Mixdeck Pro 1st Generation and dj’d his first party at his former high school. Gigs didn’t stop for Dollar, although he couldn’t afford a laptop or a Serato box. One of my main goals is “making music a universal language” “If someone like @djnabsinlab who has made it still stays up late to PRACTICE then I’ll never stop practicing.”

Late December of 2011, Dollar started his first semester at West Virginia University and immediately made friends throughout the campus. During this time, he faced a major loss in the family, his brother suddenly passed on, Dollar wanted to make his brother proud because he was a big supporter.   His first event was the “2012 Africa night”; then followed by a graduation party in May for a Ghanaian, who just graduated from the university. His sister, who is a big supporter, helped him purchase his first console, a Numark NS7, which had Serato itch built-in.  At this time, his career started picking up, gaining gigs from private events in the summer to university events – in the late fall.

With his popularity increasing daily, he began working with locals, DJ Fiesto and DJ Monstalung, at hip hop showcases, tailgate parties and a bar named “Chic n Bones.. In Spring of 2013, Dollar became the university’s DJ and started branching out into weddings, more corporate events and building a team.  “Two of my main mentors, who have always been with me in Morgantown, DJ Arthur King (CEO of MYRADIO NETWORK and Power 909 FM) and DJ Monstalung (CEO of PartyMonstas)”. DJ Arthur King gave him a slot on his radio station and guided him on how to be a “Radio DJ”. DJ Monstalung made him a key person in the Morgantown hip hop scene.




Hosting parties became fairly interesting and Dollar knew that this could catapult his career into another stratosphere. Hosting a party with DJ JAM MASTER J’SON, the son of the legendary RUN DMC DJ, Jam Master Jay was the most memorable experience of a lifetime.  The hosting didn’t stop after that, in Fall of 2013, he hosted a Pusha T after party when he came to WVU.  “I had the great pleasure of opening up for the “World Famous G-Unit DJ,  DJ Whoo Kid. I couldn’t believe he was standing next to me.  I have listened to him since I was 13!” Another mentor, “Core DJ”, DJ Schemes, an alumnus of WVU,  when he came for the homecoming weekend,  he advised him on several things. After DJ Schemes’ advice, “I kept hitting the road and ended up doing shows in Cincinnati too. I have fans that love me out there!” says Dollar.

DJ Dollar knows that he has to travel outside of his limits, to effectively network with other DJs. Recently, he traveled to Miami, Florida for his first “Core DJs” retreat, where he met the world-renowned DJ Scratch,  the 1988 New Music Seminar Battle For World Supremacy DJ Champion, 3 Time Grammy-Nominated Multi-Platinum Producer, The 2010 “Master Of The Mix” Winner & The 2012 & 2013 Global Spin Awards Turntablist Of The Year.

Candidly speaking,  “I’m an aspiring Core DJ. Core DJs opened my eyes to the world of music business and made me realize that djing these days is more than just an art. I’m an entrepreneur studying business administration in college and a good DJ”.

That was only half of the equation, though. Lil Kim’s princess popped it up for the shot, which looked a test shot for a Johnson’s ad. The corporation may want to give Kim a call about an endorsement deal. Just saying!

Originally posted on Hot 107.5:

Danity Kane is just days away from releasing the final album they’ll ever drop as a group. The remaining members of the group went their separate ways this summer after a fight broke out between Dawn Richard and Aubrey O’Day. You might not want to hold your breath for a tour to promote this album, but at least they didn’t leave fans high and dry without a final release.

In their first post-breakup single, “All In A Day’s Work,” the girls sing about balancing their hustle and home life. It’s hard work being fabulous and handling your business, but some women just make it look easy

It’s Not Over! Pebbles Files New Lawsuit Over VH1’s TLC Biopic

Originally posted on Hot 107.9:

tlc and pebbles

It’s been a year since VH1 aired “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story,” and Perri “Pebbles” Reid is still mad about how the network made her look.

Filing a $40 million lawsuit against Viacom was simply not enough for Pebbles. reports that she claims the film has ruined her life in a new lawsuit (That’s right. Another one!), where she states that she was grossly misrepresented.

According to court documents, Pebbles believes that “CrazySexyCool” discredited her character by depicting her as a dishonest, cut-throat businesswoman that would stop at nothing to squeeze every last dime she could out of TLC. The group’s ex-manager argues that contrary to her portrayal in the movie as a cheat, she poured her time and money into the mission of making TLC one of the best-selling girl groups ever.

President Obama Trolls Heckler To Perfection [VIDEO]

Originally posted on Hot 107.9:


While in his hometown of Chicago, President Barack Obama decided to cast his 2014 midterm votes a little early. And although “Chiraq” has had its fair share of issues and/or conflicts, we’d never expect the Commander in Chief to face anything peculiar, right?

Well, it doesn’t look like that was the case on this particular day. While behind the voters booth, a man by the name of Mike Jones — no pun intended — walked by and warned the president, “Don’t touch my girlfriend,” who happened to be standing directly next to the POTUS in another booth. In a very calm, monotone voice, President Obama responded, “You know, I wasn’t planning on it.” The room began to erupt in laughter, which continued for a few good minutes. It seems like Mike didn’t really know who he decided to step in the ring with, as the first lady’s husband began to…
