One of hip hop’s BIG-gest mysteries has been solved. After 17 years, the afro-rocking cover baby of the Notorious B.I.G’s “Ready to Die” album has been found by the New York Daily News. So, did he grow up to look like Big?? Find out after the jump!! (NYDailyNews)– A high school senior who grew up in the Bronx says he’s that chubby-cheeked kid on the cover of “Ready to Die” – the acclaimed debut album by slain rapper, Notorious B.I.G.
“Every time people find out they ask me if I got a lot of money out of it,” Keithroy Yearwood, 18, told the Daily News.
He made only $150 for the two-hour modeling agency shoot, where he was shot in diapers, sporting a neatly picked-out Afro.
Released in 1994 by Sean (Diddy) Combs’ Bad Boy Records, “Ready to Die” sold 3.3 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
“I just want people to know that’s me,” Yearwood said. “The truth is finally coming out.”

It sounds like the meetings Katie Price had in Los Angeles last month paid off. The former glamour model has just been picked to host a new US TV show called, Make Me A Hunk.
The Mirror reports, “It’s a huge deal for Kate and she is thrilled. It’s the biggest gig of her career to date and the first time she will have fronted a TV show.” Apparently several different networks including ABC, E! and CW are bidding over the rights to the eight-episode show, where Katie will help transform geeks to studs.“Contrary to other reports, this deal was the reason she was in the States. American networks love all things British at the moment.” “They feel viewers will warm to Kate’s larger than life personality and blunt put-downs – although producers were startled at how sarcastic and rude she was to the gimpy guy in the pilot episode. But it worked, she toughened him up and worked her magic.”

It’s being reported from British newspaper The Sun that an “unknown source” has revealed that the power couple are set to appear on Dr. Dre’s final album, Detox that’s set to drop later this year. The report states that Hov & Dr. Dre have recorded a song with the chorus left open for Beyoncé to sing, this being Dr. Dre’s final release he personally wanted the couple to appear together on the project. This would be the first time the couple will appear on a song together since “Pray” off Jay-Z’s 2007 American Gangster LP. Let’s hope if it happens it won’t sound anything like Jay x Dre’s last collabo that leaked last year, “Pressure”.

Alejandra Jackson — the baby mama of Randy and Jermaine — has been living at the house with her kids, and the estate is going to court Tuesday trying to evict her.
The war over Michael Jackson’s family house has just heated up … because legal docs have just been filed with the court claiming La Toya Jackson …. NOT the Michael Jackson Estate … may actually own the home.
In new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Alejandra’s lawyer claims Michael may have held the property in joint tenancy with La Toya, so when Michael died his interest in the house would have automatically gone to La Toya.
We checked the records of the L.A. County Recorder, and the title is currently held as Michael Jackson J Decd [deceased]. And Michael Kane, Michael’s business manager, is listed as a co-owner. La Toya’s name is never mentioned.
TMZ broke the story … Katherine Jackson is trying to evict Alejandra and her kids.
We’ll be at the hearing tomorrow.
