    Church for Thugs - 50 Cent decides to be a little more selfish on upcoming LP Black Magic.

    The Pros of Khon's - Occasional outburst aside, Midtown's boutique bar is as laid-back as it is hip.

    Scott Ritter has just walked back into the soft light and currently calm atmosphere of Khon's Bar (2808 Milam). He picks up the cell phone he's left at the bar, clicks the screen on, then shouts "OH YES, MOTHERFUCKER!" to nobody in particular. ...
