Bobby Shmurda Denied Bail Again!


Bobby Shmurda was back in court today facing charges on drug dealing and weapons possession.  The Brooklyn 21-year-old rapper has been in jail since December 17, 2014 with a bail currently set at $2 million.

According to Page Six, Shmurda’s new lawyer Alex Spiro asked for him to be released on bail, but it was once again denied as judge James Burke and the prosecution argued that the case against him got even stronger.

There is a new trial date of February 22 for the “Hot N****” rapper. Let’s just hope he doesnt continue to “hot” himself up.

Young Thug’s Goon Arrested In Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting

Lil Wayne’s tour bus was allegedly shot up by a guy who has very close ties to Wayne’s rival, Young Thug ..

Atlanta PD got an arrest warrant for the suspect, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, on May 21 … and he’s been charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a felon, and criminal gang activity.

We’re told by multiple sources in Atlanta that Winfrey has been Young Thug’s road manager — which is incredibly relevant since Thug’s been in a very public feud with Wayne for months.

Thug released a mixtape called “Tha Carter 6” — mocking Wayne’s long delayed album — but changed it to “Barter 6” when he was threatened with a lawsuit.

TMZ broke the story … Wayne’s bus got blasted back in April as he was leaving a club gig in Atlanta. Police say Winfrey was trying to gain status in the Bloods by “committing a high profile shooting of a rival rap artist.”

Winfrey’s mug shot is from a previous arrest for drug possession in Florida.

Young Thug Taking His Battle With Lil’ Wayne To The Next Level With His Latest Comments


Not long after laying low on his beef with the Young Money honcho, Thugger Thugger has decided to spark up some more beef with his latest comments.

“I’ma drop one more mixtape before my album. The album is called High Tunes. I’ma drop one more mixtape. I’ll probably name it Tha Carter V ’cause the original Carter V still ain’t came out yet, I don’t know what the f–k they doing, they slowcoaching. So I’ma put that muthafucka out for ’em. That’s how it’s going down. High Tunes.”

Let’s see how this ends…

Redman MTV Cribs Ep… 15 Years Later…


Whether you’re a Def Squad Head or a lover of pranksters, Redman’s episode of “MTV: Cribs” is that of legend. At a time when celebrities—especially rappers were showing gold-leaf wallpaper, infinity pools, personal chefs and garages that looked like Italian car dealerships, Reggie Noble was the antithesis.

In year 2000, Redman welcomed “Cribs” to his pad in Staten Island, New York. From a refrigerator/freezer that had both fish-sticks and a box of $1 bills, a tired shower-curtain, a messy floorspace, two turntables (and an early Stones Throw Records 12″), and a passed-out cousin on the carpet—Redman was a man of the people. Even with a platinum album, a movie deal, and a position as one of Def Jam Records’ flagship artists, Funk Doc was (and is) an Everyman.

Now 15 years old, Thrillst and author Chris Faraone looked back at the moment. “An Oral History of Redman’s Notorious MTV Cribs Episode” brings back Red’, MTV producers, and even the sleepy cousin to reflect on the moment.

“While everybody was trying to show a lavish house, the lavish life of living, that’s not always the case,” Redman explained, looking back. “Not every entertainer’s living lavish. They may have a more lavish set on the street, but it’s still real for a lot of cats out here in the entertainment game. We’re okay, but we’re not rich, and that’s what I wanted to display to my fans… I always try and think about what the ‘hood would say when I do things.”

Red’ added that he originally purchased the home in Shaolin as “a real-estate project,” but Method Man’s band-mate found he liked the seclusion of the townhouse, away from his Newark hometown, and the glamor of New York City.

“They show up fucking early,” Redman recalled, who was notably drowsy during the taping. “I wanted to at least clean up a bit, since I ain’t have any real furniture in there and shit, and I thought I had a little bit of time and I didn’t. When they knocked on the door I was still sleepy-eyed and they were like, ‘You know what, this is good, let’s just roll with it.” He adds, “We just winged it.” The history retrospective debunks the popular myth that the episode was staged, accentuated, or simply “faked” for humor and publicity’s sake. “Everything you see was real. It’s just everyday life for us.”

In a moment that has certainly been a highlight in Redman’s 25-year career, the MC stresses that being real is key. “Once you do things and keep things 100% with yourself, you can never lose.”

At a time when social media has allowed artists to be more accessible to fans, was Redman ahead of the curve in keeping it real during the last days of the “shiny suit era”?

The Game Threatens To Put Them Paws On Young Thug!!!


The Game continues to look to being the enforcer in these beefs.

Gearing up for the release of ‘The Documentary 2′ album, he’s back in the blogs, this time for trying to enter the beef between Young Thug and Lil’ Wayne.

The former G-Unit member was at a concert talking tough towards Thugger Thugger, for disrespecting Weezy.

“My nigga Tune ain’t never been Hollywood, he’s just Hollygrove… Anybody fuckin’ with Tune got a problem with me. I will f*** Young Thug up, on piru, nigga!”

Did Mayweather’s Hype Cause Shooting?

In his never ending fight for attention , the police now want to take boxing champ Floyd Mayweather in for questioning regarding the murder-suicide that left friend, Earl Hayes, and wife, Stephanie Mosely, dead. LAPD also received word that Mayweather was a witness to the incident, after FaceTiming with Hayes Monday morning when the shots were fired. Sources say Floyd challenged Hayes prior to the incident, saying “he was weak for not leaving her, as she was bad for his career…” More on what went down on the scene and following the incident after the jump!

Via TMZ:
Floyd Mayweather whipped his friend Earl Hayes into a frenzy over his wife’s infidelity … to the point Hayes gunned her down … and now the LAPD wants to sit the boxer down for questioning … multiple sources tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story … Floyd was on FaceTime with his rapper friend Monday morning when the shots were fired. Now we’re told, Floyd was telling Hayes he should leave his wife, Stephanie Moseley — a well-known backup dancer and star of VH1’s “Hit the Floor” — because she was bad for his career.

TMZ reports… Hayes was distraught over what he believed was repeated infidelity, including a fling he said Stephanie had with Trey Songz. One Mayweather source says Floyd challenged Hayes, saying he was weak for not leaving her. At that point, as Floyd was on FaceTime, Hayes went off and said he was going to gun down Stephanie. We’re told when the boxer realized Hayes was going to shoot Stephanie, he begged Hayes not to go through with it.

Our law enforcement sources say Hayes went into the bathroom and fired 10 to 12 shots as Stephanie was taking a bath. We’re told she was hit multiple times.  Neighbors who heard the shots called the LAPD and cops rushed to the scene, but when they got to the door they heard another shot and retreated. That shot was Hayes taking his own life.  The SWAT team showed up and broke down the door. Cops found Stephanie’s body in the bathtub and Hayes was in the bedroom.


J. Cole Added to Trick Trick’s “No Fly Zone”

Here we go again!!  Apparently the D-BO of Detroit, Trick Trick is at it again.  Trick Trick has long been known as a Hip Hop gatekeeper in Detroit either through music or literally not letting in artists he feels disrespect his native city.  Now, Trick may have a new artist to lay the “No Fly Zone” over. Recently releasing his “Fire Squad” song, which takes a shot at Eminem, among other rappers, J. Cole may have gotten himself in trouble with Trick Trick.  During the track, Cole raps:  “History repeats itself and that’s just how it goes,” then follows up with, “Same way that these rappers always bite each other’s flows / Same thing that my nigga Elvis did with rock ‘n’ roll / Justin Timberlake, Eminem and then Macklemore.”

On Instagram, Marv O’Neal posted a picture of a recent Facebook status he made about the situation, questioning J. Cole’s motives. Trick commented on it saying “He ain’t poppin “Shit Shit” is he?????  I will lock the gate on that nigga!”  He also said Cole was building “himself an ass Whippin.”  Earlier this year it was reported that Trick Trick imposed the so-called “No Fly Zone” on Rick Rossbecause he felt Ross never collaborates with artists from The D. The term stems from a song Trick did featuring Royce Da 5’9 of the same name.

I wonder what’s next, with all the drama that is going on in Ferguson and other cities around the world, you would think something like this wouldn’t be worth the press. But then again where are our priorities at right now.

Iggy Removes A$AP Tat


Back when Iggy Azalea and A$AP Rocky first came on the scene, Iggy tattooed the words “Live Love A$AP” on her fingers as an ode to her man (since it was the title of his mixtape.) When things didn’t work out, however, she crossed out the “A$AP”. She need up spazzing out on the media for focusing their attention on it. It was the talk on blog posts everywhere.

Clearly she didn’t enjoy the subject being a topic of conversation, and I’m willing to bet it’s because she was probably still a little salty over it. She eventually opened up about the situation with Complex Magazine, discussing the tattoo, whether she regrets the relationship and just how serious they were.

Iggy Stated… “I’d date somebody in the industry again, but the number one thing I regret saying publicly is that I fucking loved Rakim,” Iggy said of the relationship. She elaborated:

These are the things that happen when you say you love somebody in the media: Every person that person’s ever had sex with, who would still like to have sex with them, will say what a lame bitch you are. Every person who’s ever had sex with me, who wants to have sex with me still, will say how wack the guy is. Then, everybody who has an ulterior motive business-wise is gonna come at us and tell us every reason why we shouldn’t fuck with each other. Little seeds get planted. “Does she really love you? Did she say that because she’s using you for attention? You should be dating a black girl.” Blogs do voting polls: “Do you think they’re a good couple or not?” I fucking hated that. It’s not a song. It’s a relationship, and you’re not in it, by the way. It’s so sick to me. Also, you can never go out because people will take pictures of you or talk about what you’re doing, or if you’re having a fight. You’ll never be able to enjoy yourself in the capacity of a normal fucking human being ever again.

That’s kind of a lie, seeing how very public she is with Nick Young these days, but we get what she meant.

Did she regret the tat, though?  Iggy Continued…

I’ve never regretted it. I fucking loved him. I know he loved me, too. I felt like he was somebody I could count on who loved me for being me, and I don’t want to forget that. I would sacrifice a quarter of a pinky for those memories. That’s why I didn’t cross it out all the way, because if I’d covered it up all the way, that says I’m embarrassed. You shouldn’t be ashamed of the trials of becoming an adult. I wanted people to know I’m free for more possible love interests, but also not ashamed.

Welp, looks like that was a bit inaccurate too, as it appears she’s had it lasered off, judging by these paparazzi photos taken outside of a doctor’s office yesterday. Hey, things change when you fall in love, right?

Roc Nation Gets Fabolous…


Fabolous on MTV today made a major announcement that he signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation imprint (I’m unsure whether for a record label or for management) however Fabolous did confirm that Young OG will drop at digital retailers on Christmas, and the first single from the project will be called “Lituation.”  As for the album, it will be “very ’90s-inspired and ’90s themed,” just like his recent birthday party! Fab seems to embrace that golden era in hip-hop . Congrats on the Roc Nation move and can’t wait for this album to drop.
