Earlier this week, it was widely reported that Jay Z and Beyonce were purchasing the rights to the Confederate flag. The story originated from a website called NewsWatch33 who “spoke” with the couple’s lawyer about the political statement and savvy business move.

“My clients are adamant about purchasing the rights to the Rebel Confederate flag,” their lawyer Ralph Hammerstein allegedly told NewsWatch33.

“They have expressed deep concern regarding the flag and how it is tearing apart our nation. Mr. and Mrs. Carter wants to assist in the abolishment of the flag by purchasing the resell rights to the Confederate flag. If my clients are successful, purchasing the rights would mean that anyone who wants to produce merchandise using the Confederate flag would have to get permission from Mr. and Mrs. Carter. My clients have expressed that they are not looking to profit from the use of the flag, but rather prevent any further use of the flag on merchandise.”

HipHollywood’s Head Honcho Kevin Frazier could have used that piece of advice before stopping by “The Raw Word” on Wednesday, but unfortunately, we didn’t get to him in time. We kid, we kid. It’s more like the “Entertainment Tonight” host got a dose of his own medicine.

Before his chat with “TRW” hosts Michael Eric Dyson, Claudia Jordan and executive producer and guest co-host, Ice-T, HH stopped by the set to get the inside scoop on if they planned on grilling our guy like he’s had to do to so many celebs himself. Instantly, Jordan began plotting her revenge, “he catches people off-guard all the time,” Claudia quipped, “so let him come here and he will find out for himself what the question are because he’s gotten me a couple times.”

Luckily, when Kevin did show up, the two played nice. Check out the clip below and be sure to head to for local listings.
