“He keeps them blue pills on deck to let the younger chicks have it.” ~Anonymous James Brown told our blind item to get his first perm. Know why? Because The Godfather of Soul recognized a real playa when he met our mystery man. When Lisa Raye crossed paths with the Reverend — whose 13-years her senior — it wasn’t long before he was paying her to hit that. Don’t believe me.. Just ask Roland Martin. During the early 80’s he made the FBI’s hit list. That’s when the Feds tried settin’ the brother up — using an undercover posing as a South American drug kingpin — who offered up our blind item ‘thousands of dollars’ for him to arrange a top cocaine connect. The operation went bust. Know why? Because this Brooklyn brother smelled a rat and walked away from the sting. Today, he’s banking on Jay Z to persuade Barneys to cut him a check [straight pimp’in], promising Barneys’ New Slave he’ll make the boycott go away.
