The last week has been full of excitement with tons of things going on up and around the city including the Latin Billboard Awards and all kinds of parties on and throughout the week that have been poppin’ off. Here’s a quick run of news bites…

1) Rick Ross in the New York Times – Ricky makes it into the New York Times. Check out this legendary interview with the NYC based publication. The photo taken for the story is also pretty dope (pictured above) – Click here to read it.

2) DTR Sales update – Rick Ross is slated to sell about 150,000 copies of his third studio album, Deeper Than Rap – and pretty much ensuring his third straight #1 album. Asher Roth will most likely come in second with about 80,000 sold.

3) Ace Hood serving that second Def Jam album – Ace Hood has been quite busy as of late. Word is he was busy at hand doing a promotional album shoot this past Tuesday in Miami. He was also filming the video to his new single yesterday (Wednesday) with Akon and T-Pain – directed by Gil Greezy. More details coming soon…

4) 305 INK – Chris Nunez, most notable from the popular reality show, Miami Ink was recently interviewed by Format Magazine. Its a great interview that gives insight to what he’s been up to since the show stopped production. Click Here to read it

5) MTV NEWS making their rounds in The 305 – It seems that MTV News is working on a special series around Miami hip-hop artists as their cameras have been spotted doing interviews with Ted Lucas, Shonie, Pitbull, Cool-N-Dre, Rick Ross and others. Most likely, this will be for a Memorial Day Weekend segment or what not, but only time will tell. We already saw a portion of their Rick Ross segment leak earlier today. We’ll keep you posted…
