Frail,frightened and facing certain death is what was described regarding a neighborhood find according to an associate close to the Atlanta rapper/musician Lord Hector Diono whose also my boss. it's no secret that Hector never so much as check his mailbox without a firearm in his hand so imagine his surprise when an annoying sound outside his home studio in Decatur,Georgia kept finding it's way through his headphones on Thursday morning August 30. In traditional fashion Hector reportedly stepped outside to investigate the noise with a loaded handgun in his hand as his neighbors looked on in laughter to find the big bad threat to his paranoid being was a one pound kitten.
I found it hard to believe so I called our CEO myself and asked him to send me a photo because I know Lord Hector is allergic to cats and pet dander. He sent me the photo and admitted despite being allergic to cats he saved the stray kitten this morning after being disturbed by the feline's constant hunger cries outside his home studio during his morning cup of coffee. The kitten has been fed, bathed in Dawn dish washing liquid according to Hector, and has been named "Chico". It's not yet clear on when Hector will release the kitten to the proper authorities as this animal can upset Hector's personal wellness balance. On a personal note; Hector, whose responsible for creating, as well as the daily operations of the urban fashion online store "theiconshop.net" and music hits on iTunes,Rhapsody,and music releases around the world such as "Scarecrow" (The Final Chapter) ,30K, and "Mr. Predator" and I have known each other for eight years now and I know he might try to keep the animal simply because he was raised around cats thanks to his estranged mother and sister. I will try to keep you posted on this if he cares to keep me informed good luck Chico, and good luck Hector.
[UPDATE] Chico's a Girl!!!!! View recent pics of "Chicoleah Suelottie Diono™" Here

By Lord Hector Diono CEO Hood Watch Media: Lil Wayne was freed from Riker's Island on Thursday after serving eight months in a gun case, emerging with a hot new album, well-wishes from a former president and a deepened appreciation for fans.
His managers said he planned to head for his home in Miami.
"I was never scared, worried nor bothered by the situation" behind bars, Lil Wayne said through a website he set up to give fans a glimpse of his life in jail.
Lil Wayne, who had the best-selling album of 2008 and won a best rap album Grammy with "Tha Carter III," kept his career in gear while locked up for having a loaded gun on his tour bus in 2007.
His latest album, "I Am Not a Human Being" -- released while he was in solitary confinement in September -- hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last month.
President Barack Obama recently told Rolling Stone he has some Lil Wayne music on his iPod.
And former President Bill Clinton praised the rapper's abilities to a Pittsburgh radio station Tuesday, saying "what I hope will happen is that he has a good life now."
Lil Wayne, born Dwayne Carter Jr., pleaded guilty in October 2009 to attempted weapon possession, admitting he'd had a loaded, semi-automatic .40-caliber gun on his bus after a Manhattan concert.
He started a yearlong sentence in March but got time off for good behavior, despite a disciplinary knock that sent him to solitary
for the last month of his term. A charger and headphones for a digital music player were found in his cell in May, jail officials said. The items are considered contraband.
'bachelorette' contestant's death investigated: Julien Hug, who had vied for Jillian Harris's love on season five of "The Bachelorette," was found dead off a highway in the Southern California desert.
The 35-year-old San Diego man was on his way to help his family manage their newest restaurant in Palm Desert when he disappeared Monday, his father, Bertrand Hug, told KGTV San Diego.
"I am completely heartbroken for the Hug family, and my whole heart goes out to them today as they mourn a precious life that ended far too soon," Harris said in a statement.
"It's very difficult to find the words to express my condolences, but I will always remember Julien's gentle demeanor and kind heart, which will be sadly missed."
Riverside County Sheriff's Department Deputy Melissa Nieburger confirms that the body of a "deceased male adult" was found at 11 a.m. Wednesday in an unincorporated area called Pinyon Pines.
A Hug family spokesman late Wednesday confirmed the body was the former Bachelorette contestant's.
Hug, a tall hunky brunette, described himself on the show as an adventurer. "The sense of freedom that comes from sky diving is a big thrill," he said on the Season five opener, which showed him jumping out of a plane and cruising in a flashy red sports car.
Even though Hug only made it to Week Two of eliminations, he said he felt he had a connection with Harris.
"Jillian and Julien together forever," he said on the show. "That sounds great."
C'MON, GET BUSTED: Former "Partridge Family" heartthrob David Cassidy has been charged with driving under the influence in Florida.
The Florida Highway Patrol says his car was stopped around 6 p.m. Wednesday for weaving and nearly causing an accident.
Cassidy told a trooper that he had a glass of wine at lunch and a pain pill at 3:30 p.m.
Troopers reported finding a half-empty bottle of bourbon in the back seat.
Anyone check the bottle for Danny Bonaduce's fingerprints?
The FHP says Cassidy failed a field sobriety test and two breath tests. He was released from jail early Thursday.
His spokeswoman, Jo-Ann Geffen, told TMZ he took a pain pill and was tired from attending a funeral, but insists he was not drunk. That must've been some pain pill. By Lord Hector Diono CEO Hood Watch Media:By Lord Hector Diono CEO Hood Watch Media: Lil Wayne was freed from Riker's... more

Tuesday September 2, 2009 Source AP by Julie Zimmerman: It's an old wound rarely discussed by the Atlanta based African American Jewish recording artist Lord Hector Diono, born Lord Michael Chambers Rosenthorn. The topic was the 1992 rape conviction of former boxing Champion of the world, “Iron" Mike Tyson. We talked with the rapper about the events that took place and led to the charges being filed against the boxer by then 18 year old Desiree Washington a beauty pageant contestant from Rhode Island and a cousin to former Miss Black Rhode Island, Tonya Bustamante who at the time was engaged to the Atlanta rapper. Hector gave a statement to press corresponded Thomas Flassen of associated press UK May 9, 2006. "It was always a touchy subject to discuss with Tonya, and it was even harder trying to remain a good man to her and hold my tongue at the same time while this crap was being presented as an authentic case of rape, and with Dee being her cousin and all I didn't wanna cause friction between us, but it was plain as the nose on my face that cuz was so offended after her sexual interlude with Tyson that she decided to press rape charges". The rapper went on to say that he finally gave in to his convictions and against his better judgment ( keep the peace at all times) he expressed his discontent with the media and Miss Washington to his then fiance' Tonya Bustamante. Hector went on to say that initially Tonya didn't treat him different after she learned of his feelings toward her cousin but two years after the verdict was handed down by an Indianapolis jury, “guilty"; the relationship strained beyond reconciliation. Tonya Bustamante and Lord Hector Diono split up in the fall of 1994. Our sources later found that Tonya Bustamante appears to have seen things the way Hector saw them a full decade later. Sources concluded that after being silenced by fear and other family members for thirteen years, the cousin to Desiree Washington, and former fiance' to the rapper Lord Hector Diono had come forward with shocking new information about Ms. Washington's case against Mr. Tyson. The former Miss Black Rhode Island, concurred with the findings of famed attorney Alan M. Dershowitz as depicted in his book America on Trial - Inside the Legal Battles That Transformed Our Nation. In his book, Mr. Dershowitz illustrates the possibility that perhaps Mr. Tyson could have been innocent of the allegations of rape made against him by Ms. Washington. Ms. Bustamante supports Mr. Dershowitz's theories, but because she was serving as Miss Black Rhode Island at the time of the actual trial, though approached by the media on several occasions she kept her silence for fear of losing her crown had she gone public with her story. In speaking further with the rapper about the 1994 breakup he stated "perhaps in retrospect she may have ultimately lost a crown that may have very well proven to be the most meaningful crown of all, the title, Mrs. "Lord Hector Diono".
