A women who participated in multiple threesome escapades with R.Kelly and the alleged underaged female in the singer’s infamous sex tape testified yesterday in court about the sexual encounters. “[The sex tape] looks like it took place around the same time we had our first enounter,” Lisa Van Allen testified. “I recognized her body, her face, her hair, her breasts–especially her breasts, because back then, I felt like she was so much bigger than me. And I recognize his face, his bald head, his genitals, his back, everything.” Van Allen said the encounters took place between 1998 and 2000, when the girl in question was 14 through 16. [MTV News]

Def Jam executive Shakir Stewart was promoted from his post at sr. vice president of A&R, Def Jam Recordings, to executive vice president of Def Jam Recordings. The move, in essence, anoints Stewart as the replacement to Jay-Z, who served as president of the storied hip-hop label before stepping down from the post in December 2007. Stewart first joined Def Jam in 2004 and was instrumental in bringing Young Jeezy and Rick Ross to the label.

Former Game protege Ya Boy released his latest mixtape, I’m Bout To Murdah This Sh*T, today. The 13-track set features collaborations with Kurupt, Eastwood, among others. The Bay Area rapper’s debut album is due this fall.

    BIG up to Shakir Stewart, and Ya BOY… home team.. oh yeah R Kelly is a sexual predator just castrate that fuck to save him from targeting your daughter.

    Shout out to Shakir, congratulations and blessings, but I’m not so sure about that Jay-Z replacement business. It’s a move up, no doubt, but not the same office, title or responsibility. Plus, I’m pretty sure Shake can’t rap.
