'There's nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael's crown and become the new King,' Kanye West says. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Following Michael Jackson's death on June 25, Kanye West claims he will become the next King of Pop, replacing the late singer. "You know everyone loves and respects Michael but times change. It's so sad to see Michael gone but it makes a path for a new King of Pop and I'm willing to take that on," so he told polomike.
On what makes him deserve the title, Kanye said, "There's nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael's crown and become the new King." The rapper then added, "First there was Elvis [Presley], then there was Michael, now in the 21st century it's Kanye's time to rule. I have nothing but respect for Michael but someone needs to pick up where he left off and there's nobody better than me to do that. I am the new King of Pop."
Furthermore, Kanye reportedly has reached out to the Jackson family to obtain official permission to use the title but so far received no response from them. It is believed that the family is still mourning over Michael's death.
"King of Pop" was a honorific title popularized by Elizabeth Taylor when she presented Michael Jackson with Artist of the Decade prize around 1989. At that time, the British-American actress proclaimed Michael, who has sold million copies of records, as "the true king of pop, rock and soul."
Kanye needs to quit it.

So, earlier this week, it was confirmed that Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush officially broke up. While, it was reported that their relationship ended because of long periods apart, rumors are surfacing that Kanye West may have contributed.
According to polomike.com, Bush saw text messages from the rapper/producer on Kim's phone and wasn't too happy about it.
An insider tells the news organization that Bush flipped out, due to the nature of the messages.
"Reggie saw text messages on Kim's phone from Kanye West and flipped out on her," the source tells polomike.
"The texts referenced a night they hung out, how much fun he had, how hot Kim was, and more racy things that got Reggie's imagination running."
The source said Bush confront Kim about the texts, and the couple had a huge fight, resulting in the break-up. Both reportedly realized there was trust issues, and agreed to end things.
"They realized there were trust issues on both sides, and couldn't go forward," the source told polomike.
At press time, the rumors were unconfirmed. Both West and Kim's camps were not available for comment.

In a polomike.com exclusive report:
Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush have called it quits, a rep for the reality star confirmed to polomike.com.
Kim, 28, began dating the 24-year-old NFL star in April 2007.
According to a source close to the former couple, the split was a “mutual decision.”
In June, Kim hit her blog to dispel rumors the two were set to walk down the aisle.“Nobody cheated. This was just a case of conflicting schedules and their lives going in different directions,” the source told polomike.com.
“I am not engaged!!!” she wrote at the time. “I don’t know where all this comes from!… Don’t worry guys, you will be the first to know if and when I get engaged!!… Well after I tell my family, of course!”
The couple first met at the 2007 ESPY Awards after they were introduced by mutual friend – and Reggie’s former USC teammate, fellow NFL star Matt Leinart.
“We met at the  ESPY Awards,” Kim previously told polomike.com of her initial encounter with Reggie. “My stepdad, Bruce, and I were walking to our seats and Matt called my name. When I went over, he was sitting with Reggie…. Matt introduced me to the love of my life and we will always be grateful.”
Under the unusually lucrative agreement he struck with Aspire/Young Money/Cash Money Records distributed through Universal, Drake received a $2-million advance. He retains the publishing rights to his songs and cedes only around 25% of his music sales revenues to the label as a “distribution fee,” his managers said. By contrast, the overwhelming majority of new artists sign financially restrictive “360 deals” that sap their touring and merchandise income and offer much more restrictive profit-sharing.
“The record company doesn’t have any ownership of Drake,” Bryant said. “The label does not have participation on profits. They don’t have ownership of his masters. We control his entire career. Those deals don’t happen anymore.”
There hasn’t been an upcoming artist with such a big buzz since 50 Cents debut in 2003. Drake has sold out concerts from his So Far So Gone Mixtape. The leading single “Best I Ever Had” has been receiving more then 1300 spins on radio, and has sold 600,000 digital downloads. He’s been featured on records with Jay-Z, Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna and Fabolous. He’s currently working on his debut album “ Thank Me Later” and will embark a 22-city tour starting July 27th with Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, and Soulja Boy in “Young Money Presents: America’s Most Wanted Music Festival”.
After his Houston office and storage unit were searched, and law enforcement officials announced that they believe Murray administered the lethal dose of propofol to Jackson, his Las Vegas home is now being raided by Federal agents.
"They're searching Dr. Murray's residence and office. They're executing a search warrant. They're continuing to look for records and other aspects of the investigation. They're just looking for any information they need to help [in the investigation]," a law enforcement source tells PEOPLE.
Murray has yet to be indicted on any charges, but police are seeking a third interview with the doctor.

The day after Kelis gives birth to Knight Jones, a judge orders Nas to pay some hefty child and spousal support…
The Associated Press reports:
A judge [Judge Louis Meisinger] has ordered Nas to pay Kelis nearly $44,000 in monthly support for the near future…
The two have been sparring over support payments for several months, with Kelis contending that Nas hasn’t paid many of the costs of her pregnancy and her expenses. Nas’ attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, told the judge that the rapper has paid some expenses and the former couple’s health insurance has been maintained.
Kaplan proposed paying Kelis a one-time payment of $20,000 until the judge could settle on an appropriate spousal and child support amount at a later hearing.
Meisinger rejected that offer, saying more money per month would be needed to accommodate Kelis’ lifestyle and was warranted based on income declarations filed with the court.

A polomike.com Exclusive Off the Where Amazing Happens mixtape Mike Classic with his new single "SEE RIGHT THRU TO YOU".
Posted by PoloMike.com at 6:46 AM
“Kelis claims Nas raked in $11 million for his album deal. Nas fired back in legal papers, “I did not receive even half that amount”… claiming it’s more like $4 mil. Nas claims his income is declining, and he’s only pulling in $147,165 a month.
As for what he spends … $71,371.96 a month, which includes $10,000 a month in clothing/hair/toiletries/personal effects.
Kelis, who is about to give birth to their child, claims Nas hasn’t paid a penny for child or spousal support since he left her. Nas, who says he wants to be “fully involved” in the parenting of their child, claims he’s agreed to pay $350 for a stroller, $450 for a baby sling and $1,598 for two cribs.
Nas thinks $5,000 a month is reasonable for child support since the kid will just be a newborn.”
Kelis is due any day now….

Forbes dropped their annual Hip-Hop Cash Kings list of rap’s biggest earners today.
The past year has been even crueler to rap than it's been to Wall Street. Over the past 12 months, hip-hop's top 20 earners banked $300 million, down 40% from a year ago. The culprit: declining record sales and the disappearance of the mega-deals that once enriched hip-hop stars and corporate executives alike. Still, rising stars like Akon and T-Pain continue to brighten the hip-hop firmament, finding ever more creative ways to make money.
The Complete List:
1. Jay-Z - 35 Million

Chris Brown recently started wearing his new chain he bought and it makes a huge statement… OOPs. Yep thats exactly what it says in colorful diamonds. and on the back is a picture of him. This was done by a jeweler name Jason and it costs and whopping $300,000. Here’s what Jason had to say on the chain and I guess the whole thing about the word OOPs:
“Chris has been a client of mine for some time now”, says Jason. “It’s always a pleasure to work him because it gives me a chance to be creative. He came to me with a great idea and I am very pleased with the finished product”.

As much as we as a site (polomike.com) tend to wish we could just ignore all talk about LeBron James’ future as a Cavalier, we realistically know better. This season is going to be as much about the future plans of LeBron as it will be about the Cavaliers’ latest title chase, so be forewarned. Having said that, though, the news doesn’t always have to be bad.
Sure, it seems like the news that always creates the biggest waves comes whenever a rumor is spread that “sources believe LeBron is going to play wherever Chris Bosh plays” or something of that manner. The kind of news that has LeBron leaving Cleveland is the kind of news that makes headlines. But every once in a while, you get more reaffirming rumors for Cavs fans, and the news this morning is the good kind of rumor.
ESPN’s Chris Broussard is reporting that a source very close to Trevor Ariza has informed him that LeBron told Ariza in a phone call that he would be in Cleveland beyond 2010. Broussard writes:
In a last-ditch effort to recruit Trevor Ariza away from the Houston Rockets, LeBron James told Ariza he would remain with the Cavaliers past 2010, according to a person close to Ariza.
Even that wasn’t enough to get Ariza, who verbally committed to join the Rockets last Thursday, to change his mind and go to Cleveland.
But the Cavaliers will gladly settle for the consolation prize; if indeed James’ statement to Ariza was more than an empty sales pitch.
“Trevor asked LeBron if he would be in Cleveland after next season,” the source said. “And LeBron said, ‘I’ll be there. Of course, I’ll be there.’”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair and a woman were found shot to death Saturday afternoon inside a condominium in downtown Nashville, police said.
Police spokesman Don Aaron said authorities were still investigating the shootings and that no suspects were in custody.
"I don't have any answers for you now as to what's happened, who's responsible," Aaron said.
Aaron said the 36-year-old McNair died of a gunshot wound to the head. He said police tentatively identified the woman, but did not release her name.
"There are persons who were around the complex today, visitors, who have been taken to headquarters for questioning, just to see what they know, what they may have seen," he said.
Aaron said officers went to the scene after receiving a call about injured persons inside the condo.
"When police officers arrived in response to that call, they found two individuals who had been shot to death inside the residence," he said.
The condominium is one that McNair was known to frequent, but police spokeswoman Kristin Mumford said she didn't know if he was the owner.
McNair played 13 seasons in the NFL and led the Titans within a yard of forcing overtime in the 2000 Super Bowl, which they lost 23-16 to the St. Louis Rams. He also played for the Baltimore Ravens before retiring in April 2008.
"We don't know the details, but it is a terrible tragedy and our hearts go out to the families involved," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
"We are saddened and shocked to hear the news of Steve McNair's passing today," Titans owner Bud Adams said in a statement. "He was one of the finest players to play for our organization and one of the most beloved players by our fans. He played with unquestioned heart and leadership and led us to places that we had never reached, including our only Super Bowl."
