#CelebNews Michael Jordan Offering Buyer Of His Chicago Area Mansion Every Pair Of Air Jordans To Sweeten The Deal!

MJ has an offer for the perfect sneaker head and aspiring home buyer. According to reports; Michael Jordan’s Chicago-area mansion has been patiently waiting for a buyer for more than three years now and the NBA legend is going to creative measures to get it off the market.

According to his luxury real estate agent Kofi Nartey, the cash cow who steps up to the free throw line of the property with be rewarded with every pair of Air Jordans ever created as a bonus.

Nartey tells Maxim that the buyer doesn’t exactly have to be a sneakerhead and there could possibly be an alternate enticing deal of their choosing.

“If the price is right, we can make almost anything happen,” Nartey says.

Money talks while everything else walks but the he 56,000-square-foot house in Highland Park, Illinois has seen its stock plumment since it was first put on the market in 2012. While the initial asking price was a cool $29 million, it is now available for $14.9 million, which could be considered a steal if you are into secluded areas of the Midwesteren United States.

You know what else talks? The house, apparently. A realtor ad for the property (seen above) has been gaining infamy for it employs the same trashing-talking overtone Michael Jordan used in his playing days to brag about the pad’s amenities (full-court basketball court, a movie theater, 15 bathrooms, five fireplaces, a 500-bottle wine cellar, cigar room with a walk-in humidor, a full gym fitness center, an infinity pool, tennis court, putting green) compared to the rest of the neighborhood.

***INTERESTING TO SAY THE LEAST*** #CelebNews Meek Mill Raps Over Drake’s “Back To Back” Instrumental!

Not really sure what Meek Mill is up to nowadays. We do know he's not afraid of beef... Obviously. HipHopWired reports: This is audio footage of Meek Mill allegedly rapping over Drake’s “Back To Back” instrumental. 

Let’s keep in mind we don’t actually see the Philly rapper spitting over the same beat that made him an Internet punchline.

 There is no way Meek would actually think dropping a diss song over this of all instrumentals is a good look, right? Some savvy troll threw some Meek vocals over the beat, right? Right?! Well, this is the same man that said he was done beefing over social media, and then.

***ITS FINALLY OVER*** #CelebNews Jay Z & Timbaland Win “Big Pimpin” Lawsuit!

Jigga and Timbo win big case after years of going back and forth to court. 

HipHopWired Reports: After several delays, motions, filings and false starts (eight years worth to be exact), the “Big Pimpin” lawsuit has reached a ruling. Thankfully for those who tend to side with the artists, defendants Jay Z and Timbaland have emerged victorious. 

According to the Associated Press, U.S. District Judge Christina A. Snyder ruled in favor of the Hip-Hop behemoths today (October 21) stating that Osama Ahmed Fahmy, the alleged heir of “Khosara Khosara” artist Baligh Hamdi, did not have the right to pursue a copyright infringement claim and tossed the case like a perfect Andy Dalton spiral. 

Fahmy had previously attempted to stall out the rappers by claiming to be sick and use a six-year-old deposition in his stead, but the case proceeded as scheduled and didn’t even make it to a jury. 

Both Jay Z and Timbaland had argued that they legally cleared the sample through the record label, EMI Arabia. 

Despite the ruling in the “Big Pimpin” lawsuit, attorney Pete Ross blasted Judge Snyder’s decision, calling it “completely wrong,” most likely with his fist shaking in the air as he sped away down the street. 

Ross also revealed he plans to appeal the case.

Between being accused of physically assaulting one of his fans, to creating controversy with his comments towards President Obama, the Louisiana rapper’s disapproval rating his plummeted tremendously. This past weekend, he ensured a bit of a happiness for himself by marrying his longtime girlfriend Dreka Haynes. 

And we can proudly report that the woman is not his cousin. 

“[It’s] the best thing I ever did,” Gates wrote on one his Instagram pictures, that showcased the newlyweds walking down the aisle. From the looks of things, veteran rapper Starlito also served as the best man.

“Y’all gotta go ask Dreka if y’all could borrow some of her Royal Pickle (🍆) from here on out,” he quipped.
