Recently rumors have been circulating that there will be an Aaliyah posthumous album that will be executive produced by Drake and his producing partner Noah ’40′ Shebib. For years there have been rumors that a biopic will be released as well. Rumors on whether Missy
Elliott and Timberland who produced the majority of Aaliyah’s ‘ One In A Million’ album will be involved in the project. We aren’t sure if an Aaliyah album at this point will be a good idea. All of the material is over a decade old and probably unfinished songs. Even her verse on the newly released Track Enough Said with Drake sounds sketchy.
Her brother Rashad, jumped on her facebook page yesterday and claimed there is no Aaliyah album in the works that is endorsed by her family.
“there is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family.” -Rashad Haughton (regarding upcoming album release rumors)
Her label’s logo which is ran by her uncle Barry Hankerson was included on the official artwork that was released. This means the track is definitely supported by the label. Rashad’s rant on facebook could suggest that the project is not supported by the immediate family.
Miss Info, has stated that a solid source her that the posthumous project is happening and Timbaland is producing at least two songs.
On her facebook, Aaliyah’s brother also shut down rumors of a biopic in production by first posing the question, ‘Biopic Yes or No?’ and then posting,
“No female I’ve seen can play my sister.” -Rashad
We would like to see what comes out of this !

Recently, the cast of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta were in New York for a private screening and the audience and fans got the opportunity to ask the cast members a few questions.
K. Michelle was asked about her part in the show and why she’s just now telling her story regarding the alleged abuse that took place at the hands of Memphitz. One thing lead to another and K. Michelle began to express her feelings toward Memphitz’s wife, Toya Wright, calling her “D**k Drunk” and urging her to mind her business.
K. Michelle fully stated:
“I just got on the show basically to tell my story. I had been telling it. It wasn’t something that I just started to tell when the show came on. It’s just that they just started giving a fuck. I’ve been saying help me for a long ass time. And didn’t nobody care what I been through. So now all of a sudden it’s like wow, she’s doing this for the show. I tried to do it the right way, I didn’t say any names. And even when people rebutted and did things to me, I still tried to keep it pimping. But I’mma tell you one thing…if you wasn’t in that room, you need to shut the fuck up. And I’mma tell you one more thing…if I don’t come at you, then you don’t come for me because my story is my story. So, I don’t care if that’s your husband or not because at the end of the day, you look dick drunk. That’s what you look…dick drunk. You need to be quiet because ain’t nobody came for you. I let you be a woman, I let you do what you needed to do as a woman. I’m happy about your hair, your books. We all need to stick together as women. But what you won’t do…you can be ride or die for your man but don’t be riding for a cause that you don’t know shit about.”
