There seems to be a shimmer of light amidst the clouds of a swept Houston. Paul Wall is kissing away playa days of "Internet' pimpin' and is finally settling down. The rapper tied the knot this weekend with a low key ceremony, in his home town of Houston, Texas. Paul's doll is said to be "his long-term girlfriend, Crystal" and what a gem she is to have tagged the "People's Champ". As for more details of the wedding, "[we] don't know" but for Paul it had to be nothin' short of fabulous.

The who's who of hip hop littered the red carpet, on Tuesday, for the grand opening of Hova's Atlantic City club 40/40. Jay- Z and Beyonce bounced next to two more of Destiny's children, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland, as Diddy sang "I like". The star studded guest list also included Terrell Owens, Serena Williams, Eddie George, T.I. and Timbaland, all who arrived in limos and jets chartered by Hova himself. The new A.C. hot spot follows the design of the first New York location, with the addition of a bigger staircase and more space for plush partying. The club is equipped with an "A-Rod Room", a "Caesars Room", and an ESPN VIP room. Hova's partner in crime for this goldmine gala is Magic Johnson who said "when two people are doing big things and grew up the same way, just in different arenas, it's time for us to do things together. We have the same mindset; he dominated in his field, I dominated in my field. It's positive that the hip-hop arena and basketball arena cross over. It's all about entertainment." The two are surely blessed with the Midas touch of gold. After a successful night of partying it is on to the next big event for the man said to be "the best rapper alive". Jay heads to Philly for another Jay and friends show and then maybe wedding bling.or bells??

Catch See T.I. here, I'm Serious.

Chamillionaire, a native Houstonian, has taken time off of his "The Sound of Revenge" promoting to encourage the Houston Astros in their first time World Series appearance.

The single features fellow Houstonite, Lil' Flip, and has fans going crazy at Minute Made Park and on Houston highways, alike. In related news, Chams former Swishahouse partner and longtime friend, Paul Wall, is showing lyrical support as well.

Dipset daredevil, Cam'ron, is back in his New Jersey home today, after receiving two gunshots early this Sunday in D.C. Continuing the celebration of Howard University's Homecoming, Cam cruised from D.C.'s club H2O and became separated from his security. A car-jacker approached the lone driver at a red light and motioned for Cam'ron to get out of his 2006 Lamborghini. Refusing to part from his royal blue baby, the assailant then fired several shots, wounding both of Cam's arms. The courageous capo, bleeding, managed to drive himself to Howard University Hospital, where he remained until today. Cam's manager says "Cam'Ron will be just fine. He's in good spirits." He will be back to his playa self no time and reportedly, "he even asked the nurse for her phone number when he woke up."

Cam may be down but he's not out. Check out Down and Out.
