Morning Coffee 8.18.08

Jamaica’s track team is runnin’ tings over in Beijing, with the island’s women sprinters, Shelly-Ann Fraser, Sherone Simpson and Kerron Stewart, taking the gold, silver and bronze medals respectfully in the 100 meters and Usain Bolt beating his own damn record. Bullet, bullet, bullet!! {NYTimes}

Miami Rapper, Rick Ross allegedly whooped it real hard (or actually got his boys to whoop it real hard) on DJ Vlad at the Ozone Awards. At least that’s what Vlad, who’s suing Ross for $4 million, says. Apparently it was retaliation for putting Ricky’s former life as a correctional officer on blast. {MTV}

I admit it. I have love for Britney Spears. So I’m kinda pumped that her “Piece of Me” music video is up for the VMA’s Video of the Year. She’s up against, Chris Brown, Jonas Bros, Pussycat Dolls and the Ting Tings. {Rolling Stone}

Hella people from the Grand Canyon area have evacuated their homes due to flooding caused by the collapse of the Redlands Dam early Sunday. Damn. {Globe and Mail}
