People are LOVE-ing Serena Williams the rapper. The tennis star recorded a demo for B Major Music Group, which is owned by Baltiore Raven Bryant McKinnie. The Game praised Williams’ beats saying that she has “raw skills” and is a “really talented artist.” 60 seconds of the track was released by TMZ. In it, Williams raps, “I ball hard, no tennis racquet / I can see these haters through my Gucci glasses.”
Williams, who is from Compton, also dated rapper Common for two years, which adds to her street cred.

I can see her doing big things.”
No resolution to the NBA lockout yet, but the entire New Jersey Nets team has been given clearance to attend Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries wedding. Despite previous concerns that the no player-owner contact rule would prevent the Nets from attending the jersey chasing wedding of the century, all players and team personnel got the OK to go Saturday’s nuptials.
The Nets made the cut, after the bride-to-be had to disinvite 50 guests at the last minute because of over crowding. The fire department deemed the venue unsafe with guests, TV equipment and production crew on location. E! is filming the Kardashian-Humphries wedding in a four hour-two part TV special.
Other sports celebrities who made the guest-list are Venus and Serena Williams, Carmelo Anthony (Mr. La La Vazquez) and brother-in-law Lamar Odom. However, it appears as though Reggie Bush’s invite was lost in the mail!
