Rick Ross Sex Tape Allegations, Pitbull Hooks Up With Kodak, and More Local Hip-Hop News

Rick Ross controversies are back in the news again. It seems that constant foe 50 Cent used his website (ThisIs50.com) to post this unclear video of someone with a close resemblance to Rick Ross in a racy video clip. It was said to have been recorded way before Ross became famous. However, Teflon Don quickly took to Twitter to dispel the tape rumors, saying: "just saw the so called sex tape..the n*gga had a louie flag in back pocket but forgot the tattooes..#fail." So according to Ross, it's not him. Let's see how this turns out. I'm sure it's not the last we'll hear of this sex tape if 50 Cent has anything to do with it. [Allhiphop]
