-- Apparently, DJ Khaled's contract with E1 Records (formerly KOCH Records) expired after the release of his latest album Victory, which spawned the ultra successful single "All I Do Is Win". Well, after bring affiliated with them for years, it seems that DJ Khaled has taken steps towards the next stage in his career by signing a record deal Cash Money Records. The label that holds Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj and a long roster of artists, can now call DJ Khaled a labelmate as he is now a part of the family. No word on specific details of the contract, nor if any We The Best related artist will also jump on board with the new deal. However Derick G released photos and video of the actual contract signing, which occurred on a Yacht adorned with about a dozen bikini models standing around and looking pretty. [DerickG]

-- Rick Ross has another opponent to face it seems. Currently, there's no word where his court case with former drug heavyweight "Freeway Ricky Ross stands. And there's no word on the state of his musical battles with the foes 50 Cent and Young Jeezy are. But it seems that by the leaking of an unreleased 2 or 3 year old song called "King Boss" that Rick Ross recorded years ago - Houston's Slim Thug took offense to some of the lyrics that were obvious references to him. 

While Ross and Slim Thug did have their squabbles due to them both using

the "boss" moniker, things were squashed and they even made music

together. However, that all seems to have gone out the window now that

Slim Thug is taking to Twitter to reignite his beef with Rick Ross and

his group, Triple C's. [MTVNews]
