    Rapper Dolla Killed in L.A. Mall

    Akon protégé Dolla was murdered Monday afternoon in LA's Beverly Center. The up-and-coming Atlanta rapper, born Roderick Anthony Burton II, was shot multiple times in a parking garage at the shopping mall, and was later pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He was 21. The suspected killer, 23-year-old Anthony Louis Berry, was arrested Monday night at L.A. International Airport. Airport police sergeant Jim Holcomb told the Associated Press that the alleged murderer didn't put up a fight: "As the officers approached the subject, they asked him, 'Do you know why we're here?' He put his (hands) in the air and said, 'Yes, I've got a gun in my waistband. Don't shoot me.'" Berry's semiautomatic handgun was then recovered and he was turned over to the LAPD. His bail is set at $1 million. There's no word yet on his motive.

    WTF: 50 Cent to Sing with Bette Midler?

    When he's not rhyming with his sadistic, rape-crazy pal Eminem, former crack-slangin' rapper 50 Cent has been planning another collaboration -- this time with "Wind Beneath My Wings" singer Bette Midler! The unlikely duo met when Midler's environmental group, the New York Restoration Project, built a public garden in the Queens, New York, neighborhood where 50 Cent was raised. And according to Midler, Fiddy (born Curtis Jackson) is thrilled about recording together. "He never asked how much [money]. He just said, 'Where do I sign?'" Midler told The Sun. "Little Jewish lady and the great big rapper. He's such a doll. I love him. He's gorgeous. I was hoping we'd sing songs from the Depression, but he's so young that I don't think he knows any of them.
