According to the New York Post's law-enforcement sources, 106 & Park and Hot 97 DJ Megatron -- also known as Corey McGriff -- was out buying marijuana when he was shot dead near his home on Staten Island on Sunday morning. Investigators are still piecing together the events that led to the death of the radio and television personality. Though many believe that the murder was random, police are weighing the possibility of it being the result of a drug deal gone wrong or an assassination.

At the time of the murder, McGriff had left his four-year-old son alone at home, and only had $1 in his wallet. According to police, a girlfriend had been paying his bills despite his regular work on BET's 106 & Park music video show.

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
