Lil' Jon is out with a jam to get the ladies moving. But it's not exactly a club banger.

RICK ROSS: Dropped from Reebok
Really the surprise is in how long it took -- Reebok has canceled its endorsement deal with Rick Ross.
Rick, of course, has been taking non-stop heat for the "date-rape" lyrics in his song "U.O.E.N.O." He rhymes, "Put Molly all in the champagne/ She ain't even know it/ I took her home and I enjoy that/ She ain't even know it."
The company says,"Reebok holds our partners to a high standard, and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand. Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so. While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse."
JAY-Z: White House Responds
The White House is shooting down Jay-Z's claim that he got "White House clearance" for his trip to Cuba with Beyonce. In "Open Letter," which dropped this morning (Thursday), Jay rhymed, "I done turned Havana into Atlanta/ Boy from the hood, but got White House clearance."
President Obama's press secretary, Jay Carney, says there's no truth to the claim. He joked, "I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury... The White House, from the president on down, had nothing to do with anybody's...travel to Cuba. That is something that Treasury handles." Just to set the record straight, Carney also clarified, "It's a song. The president's not communicating with Jay-Z over this trip."
AZEALIA BANKS: A$AP Rocky Needs to Come Out
Azealia Banks is at it again -- this time she went off on fellow Harlem-ite A$AP Rocky for his advice on red lipstick.
Earlier this week, Rocky made it clear that dark skinned women shouldn't wear red lipstick, saying, “[They] can’t get away with that.” And being the beautiful chocolate woman she is, Azealia took to Twitter to address Rocky and his offensive comments.
