More like Jacob the Jailer....

If you take a moment to scroll down you'll notice that I've placed mad labels on this post. I guess I'm having a hard time categorizing this foolishness.

(In)Famous jeweler of the Hip Hop Glitterati, Jacob Arabov aka Jacob the Jeweler, was sentenced to 30 months in prison and was slapped with a 2 million dollar fine this week.

"I got that work!!"

The crime?? Laundering Money, to the tune of over $270 million in narcotics earnings for a Detroit-based drug ring. No, that wasn't a typo...I said Detroit Drug Ring Fool!!!

My 2 cents: if hes working with over 270 million, you're only gonna fine him 2 million???
I can't get over the whole drug ring thing (unintentional rhyming, my bad).
I knew his ass was a little to interested in rap music.

Shit, I'm been Black since I was born and truthfully, I'm over rap music.

I never liked his pieces anyway. I guess it suited the idiots he was working/making it for.

I always knew something was up with that guy. I'm more shocked he got caught! Oh and I'm also in loooove with Hercules & Love Affair right now (check out Pnau, you might like that too)! Fab blog honey, since you know what's up in style and entertainment, I wanted to ask if you've heard about If Looks Could Kill yet? If not, I work for Toyota and I'm excited to to spread the word about these new interactive webisodes - and thought you might be interested in more info about it! They follow an aspiring fashion assistant, Bianca Turner (Femi Emiola, Wicked Wicked Games), who is a prime example of a woman who’s got it going on. I’m talking the dream job, a man who’s got all the ladies drooling, and the spice to keep it all together when hell hits the fan. Think James Bond meets Sanaa Lathan in “Something New”, Bianca is the girl who isn’t afraid to run in her Louboutin heels!

You’ll have to see what I’m talking about. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the first episode—Haute Pursuit—where Bianca’s handbag is stolen and the chase begins. Everyone knows you should never mess with a woman’s purse, haha. The 3rd episode To Paris With Love was released this week too! FYI: Don’t be surprised when you find yourself being reeled in like bait. That will make two of us!

I hope I didn’t overstep my bounds by directly contacting you. After viewing your blog and seeing how hip to the game you are when it comes to what’s hot and current, I figured this would be something that would catch your interest.

Looking forward to hearing from you doll!
