Offset’s Lawyer Says Rapper Is Being Targeted By Cops

Offset Arrested In Georgia Mugshot

Source: TMZ / TMZ

Offset got arrested riding all types of dirty, allegedly. However, the Migos rapper’s lawyer is asserting that his client is being targeted by law enforcement. 

Reports TMZ:

Attorney Drew Findling tells TMZ … his client broke NO LAWS, and cops used a lane change as a thinly veiled excuse to try and take the rapper down.

Findling, who also reps Gucci ManeKatt Williams and Trippie Redd, tells us, “It’s a common theme. We’re talking about a young, African-American man driving a shiny, beautiful luxury car and clad in designer clothes and watches and jewelry.”

Findling goes on … “Unfortunately people in his genre become a target for law enforcement who think that lifestyle is connected to some illegal activity … and that is a sad statement.”

We certainly don’t think Offset is a menace to society. But make sure youre on point if you’re a felon and in a car with someone with a firearm.

If his assistant was indeed licensed, then his lawyer has a very valid point.

However, getting (allegedly) bagged with the weed? With a newborn at home, the stakes are higher. Ya gotta do better, bruh.

Cardi B Becomes 1st Female Rapper To Top Billboard Hot 100 Chart Twice

Birthday Bash 2018

Cardi B is the queen of the Billboard Hot 100 charts after becoming the first female rapper to top the list twice. With “Bodak Yellow” and her current hit “I Like It,” Bardi’s staying power on the charts cannot be overlooked any longer.

Billboard reports:

Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin’s “I Like It” lifts from No. 2 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, granting Cardi B an unprecedented feat in the chart’s history, as she becomes the first female rapper with two No. 1s. She first reigned with her debut hit, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” for three weeks beginning Oct. 7, 2017.

Meanwhile, Latin music stars Bad Bunny and Balvin earn their first Hot 100 No. 1 each.

Cardi B’s Record Second Hot 100 No. 1: “Like” is the 1,076th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s archives, which dates to the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958, inception.

Thanks to “Bodak Yellow” and now “Like,” Cardi B passes four female rappers who previously topped the tally with one No. 1 apiece: Lauryn Hill, with “Doo Wop (That Thing),” for two weeks in 1998; Lil’ Kim, with “Lady Marmalade,” with Christina Aguilera, Mya and P!nk (five weeks, 2001); Shawnna, as featured on Ludacris’ “Stand Up” (one, 2003); and, Iggy Azalea, with “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX (seven, 2014).

While at the time it was uncertain why the Brooklyn native was denied entrance, HOT 97’s Ebro Darden has confirmed that he wasn’t invited to perform.  “Reason we didn’t have you on Summer Jam is cause you don’t know how to shut up bro” he explained on “You Played Yourself” segment during the Ebro In The Morning show.

Darden went on to detail how he was trying to give him some stage time but things went left. “I had a whole thing but I wasn’t gonna tell him in advance because his dumbass doesn’t know how to shut up,” Ebro said. “We had a whole plan. People was working. People really wanna help this kid but he doesn’t know how to shut up.”

The former executive turned on-air personality also alleges that Tekashi allegedly covered up his face tattoos to get pass security. “Well if Summer Jam really fell off so bad fam, why you outside with makeup on covering up your tattoos trying to get inside?”

The romance, if you want to call it that, between Blac Chyna and her teenaged struggle rapper boo piece YBN Almighty Jay has moved to a new level if rumors are true. The chatter on social media is that Chyna is expecting baby number three and the reactions are as expected on Twitter.

Chyna’s name began trending on Twitter late Monday afternoon after news reports from tabloid site Media Take Out that she was sporting a baby bump and that she even rubbed her tummy for cameras. Taking a look at the photos from the weekend report, it does appear that Chyna is carrying a little bundle of joy.

On Twitter, the comments have been raging and we’ve collected some of the chatter which can be seen below and on the following pages. While no person can never be fully prepared for fatherhood, YBN Almighty Jay can’t even legally buy a fifth of scotch yet, which he’s probably going to need if there is indeed babies on the horizon.

Many rappers claim they have blood on their hands but one former YouTube star took it to Charles Manson levels. A Mexican rapper tortured three people and then some.

Christian Omar Palma Gutierrez AKA QBA pleaded guilty to the deaths of Salomon Aceves Gastelum, 25, Daniel Diaz, 20, and Marco Avalos, 20. Apparently, the struggle MC was hired by the Jalisco New Generation drug cartel who allegedly paid him to kidnap the three students.

In court, he admitted to disposing of the bodies with acid after the trio’s disappearance last month. Chief investigator Lizette Torres alleges Gutierrez has assisted in three other murders.

QBA enjoyed a sizable online following via his social media channels where he had 125k subscribers on YouTube and 140K Facebook followers. Naturally, his struggle raps depicted gruesome violence, gunplay and more.

Gutierrez and the other suspects will be charged with aggravated kidnapping and murder.

DJ Jazzy Jeff Believes Chance The Rapper Would Be “A Really Good Fresh Prince”

32nd Annual Grammy Awards - Press Room

Source: Ron Galella, Ltd. / Getty

While in Poland for the Red Bull 3Style World Finals, DJ Jazzy Jeff sat down with HipHopDX and discussed his thoughts about the potential of a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air remix.

Jazzy Jeff declared that he believes Chance The Rapper would make a great successor to the Fresh Prince. Will Smith’s right-hand man stated, “Chance is a trailblazer and Will has always been a trailblazer,” Jazzy Jeff said.

Jazzy Jeff referred to Chance’s “light-hearted demeanor” with a “serious side” and how he’s “always smiling” as reasons why he would make a really good Fresh Prince.

The Philadelphia legend went on to praise Chance’s business acumen stating, “And I think for Chance to be as young as he is, to remain independent, to understand just even a little bit about the music industry, I think is great because it’s very easy to fall into those pitfalls. It’s very easy for someone to bring you a suitcase full of money, and it changes your entire perspective instead of realizing, ‘I probably could have 10 suitcases full of money if I just keep my product to myself.’”

Rumors of a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot have stirred up the internet. With this commentary from DJ Jazzy Jeff, the excitement will continue to rise. While we wait for updates, who do you believe would make a good Fresh Prince?

Chinx Was Killed Over 6 Year Beef With Rapper, Per NYPD

Last week, two men were finally arrested for the murder of Chinx. Details are emerging about what led to the French Montana-affiliated rapper’s death via a drive-by shooting in Queens. 

XXL spoke to  Lt. Richard Rudolph, Commanding Officer of the Queens South Homicide Squad, who offered up a theory the NYPD has about the shooting and murder.

Apparently, Chinx got into a fight with Quincy Homere, one of the men arrested for his death, while both were incarcerated in Rikers Island.

“We’re not exactly sure what the fight was about but our perpetrator Quincy probably got the worst of it and he wanted to get back at Chinx,” Rudolph told XXL.

He added, “When he saw Chinx’s career starting to blow, he took it real personal and figured that his [own] career was going south… It just festered inside of him.”

Rudolph also detailed how a verbal altercation outside a show in Philly is what probably led Homere, who was an aspiring rapper who went by Qwality, to exact fatal revenge. He also explained how Homere, the shooter, and his alleged accomplice, Jamar Hill, stalked Chinx the night he was killed.

Budding Film Critic Chance The Rapper Takes Shots At Rotten Tomatoes

Chance The Rapper wears many hats as an artist, activist, and entrepreneur. Apparently, the Chicago native is also a budding film critic and took to Twitter to effectively roast movie review site Rotten Tomatoes for what he felt was a terrible ranking. 

Chano posted on Friday morning that he was taking in the film The House starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler, and couldn’t fathom why the site gave it just 17 percent.

Yesterday I watched a movie that I never heard of. It had a 17% on @RottenTomatoes … it was funny as fuck. Wtf @RottenTomatoes,” Chance tweeted.

Chance then went in on Bulworth, which earned a 75 percent ranking. “Nah but y’all gave this shitty racist unfunny fucked up ego trip of a movie a SEVENTY FIVE?!?!” Chance added.

In the end, Chance Rotten Tomatoes rant was just him having a little fun. We’ve collected the tweets for viewing below and on the following pages.

MMG Rapper Fat Trel Free From Northern Virginia Jail

Fat Trel got knocked for using counterfeit bills at a Maryland casino in 2016, which was followed weeks later by an arrest in a Washington suburb for a variety of charges. The MMG rapper was released from a Northen Virginia detention center this weekend, with Gleesh taking using his Instagram page to celebrate his return.

Born Martrel Reeves, the 27-year-old Slutty Boyz captain was slapped with DWI, narcotics distribution, speeding, and driving with a revoked license charges.

Hot Boys Rapper Turk To Appear On Iyanla: Fix My Life [VIDEO]

Life hasn’t been easy for Hot Boy rapper Turk of Cash Money fame since his release from prison. The New Orleans native, and his wife, will be appearing on the forthcoming season of Iyanla: Fix My Life.

Turk’s episode happens to be the season premiere, airing Saturday, September 30  at 9 p.m. / 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

The season begins with Iyanla traveling to Memphis to work with former rapper Turk of Hot Boys fame, who once performed alongside megastar Lil Wayne. At 21 years old, Turk had platinum albums, money was abundant, and he had fallen in love with his new girlfriend, Erica. But only two months after meeting Erica, Turk’s life fell apart when he was involved in a shootout with police at his home.
Four years after his release, Turk and his wife Erica are struggling to save their marriage from Turk’s deep-seated paranoia stemming from the shooting and his fear that his former acquaintances are determined to get revenge. Iyanla also works with Erica to help her find her identity, which she has lost sight of through the multiple traumas she has suffered since she first met Turk. Ultimately, Iyanla works to uncover the layers of trauma in both of their lives that have prevented them from moving forward.

Sounds heavy.

We said it before and we will say it again: Alexander Wang, who celebrated his 10th anniversary this evening with a bold, in-your-face Spring 2016 show that spoke directly to his cool kid sensibilities, is a musical harbinger for the fashion world.

Soon after the lights went up on the runway, out from the speakers rumbled the voracious lyrics of underground hip-hop star Lady Leshurr. Née Melesha O’Garro, the 26-year-old British rapper possesses a streetwise personal style to match the collection, and her hit single “Queen’s Speech 3” was a fitting soundtrack to the clothes.

While not an American household name just yet, Leshurr has been a favorite around the Vogue offices for weeks now, and we reckon, is destined for music and fashion stardom too.

Struggle Rapper Named Thot King Busted For Child Porn [Photos]

A 23-year-old terrible rapper has been outed as an equally terrible human being after authorities say he recruited a minor for his Worldstar-ready music videos.

Columbus, Ohio police raided the home of Eric Chavis (also known by his amateur rap moniker Thot King) earlier today, August 20, and charged him with two counts of distribution of child pornography, 10TV reports. The Central Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force interviewed a 16-year who was involved in an April 2015 prostitution sting and she was allegedly promised an opportunity to be the Thot King’s trap queen.

According to federal sources, she arrived at Chavis’ apartment located on 2996 Barclay Square in Columbus and was given alcohol and marijuana to loosen up. The teen then engaged in the explicit videos that were subsequently distributed on social media, porn site and were even available on DVD for sale. Investigators say the victim appeared both nude and partially nude in the videos.

When the girl allegedly asked Thot King to take the XXX material out of circulation, he demanded sexual favors in exchange for his troubles. [Editor’s Note: WTF?!?]

Across town, the home of Chavis’ ex-girlfriend, Casey Casto, was also raided but she told the news that she feels Thot King’s separate seedy content (drugs, guns, etc.) was the motivation for that pillage. Castro’s father tells 10TV that their upstairs bedroom has been used as a porn shoot sight in the past. Chavis isn’t shy about the basis of his rap caricature, either. Music videos titled “Getting Head From a Thot”, “Lesbian World” and “Throw That Booty Back” have been polluting YouTube over the past year.

If convicted on the charges, the Thot King will have a prison throne for up to 20 years.

Take a look at some of the images of Chavis in action in the gallery below. Needless to say, most of these pictures are not workplace friendly.

Rapper Busta Rhymes Arrested, Charged With Assault

 

NEW YORK (AP) — Rapper Busta Rhymes has been charged with assault after allegedly throwing a protein drink at a Manhattan gym employee.

Authorities say 43-year-old Rhymes, whose real name is Trevor Tahiem Smith Jr., was arrested around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. The incident happened at Steel Gym in the city’s Chelsea neighborhood.

A spokesman for the New York Police Department says the Brooklyn-born rapper and the worker had been involved in a dispute that escalated. He says Rhymes allegedly threw a 17-ounce cardboard container of strawberry protein drink at the man, hitting him in the head. It wasn’t immediately known if there were injuries.

A lawyer for Rhymes, known for his songs “Gimme Some More” and “Dangerous,” tells The Daily News he’s confident Rhymes will beat the second degree assault charge.

Court information wasn’t immediately available.

50 Cent’s List Of Creditors Revealed, Rapper Owes $26 Million

(AllHipHop News) 50 Cent filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy does not mean the Hip Hop mogul is broke, but he does owe a lot of money to several different parties. TMZ has gained access to the list of 50’s creditors that was given to the bankruptcy judge.

[ALSO READ: 50 Cent Talks Making Fun Of Himself, Warns Others About Clowning His Bankruptcy Situation]

According to court documents, the G-Unit boss owes $ 137,880 to Bentley, $ 64,909 to American Express, $ 1,737 to his own grandfather, and others. 50 is also on the hook for a total of $ 23 million from two separate lawsuits. He lost a nearly $ 17 million suit to Sleek Audio in 2014, and a jury recently awarded $ 5 million to Lastonia Leviston after she sued 50 for releasing a sex tape of her online.

“I think we’re very clear in our papers that he’s engaged in numerous tactics to delay the eventual entry of a judgment in the state court litigation,” Elizabeth Austin, Leviston’s attorney, told The Washington Post. “We believe this bankruptcy is yet another one of those tactics.”

While the legal situations play out, the public should understand exactly where 50 stands financially. Forbes calculated 50 Cent’s net worth to be close to $ 155 million. California bankruptcy attorney Mark Markus explained to Mashable why 50’s bankruptcy filings does not equal him hurting for money.

“In Chapter 11 in particular, one usually has many assets — in fact, Chapter 11 is used to protect those assets while repaying creditors what they would get if the assets were liquidated,” said Markus. “So those who file Chapter 11 are definitely not broke.”

British Rapper Skepta Talks Working With Drake & Earl Sweatshirt For His “Konnichiwa” Album

(AllHipHop News) American audiences may not be as familiar with English grime artist Joseph “Skepta” Adenuga as music fans from across the pond, but Hip Hop stars from the States are well aware of the 32-year-old North London native.

[ALSO READ: Kanye West Releases “First Official” Video For “All Day”]

Skepta a got a huge shout-out from Kanye West at the BRIT Awards in February. The GOOD Music boss debuted his single “All Day” at the ceremony, and Ye hand-picked Skepta to gather 30 people to join him during the fire cannon filled televised performance.

Besides Mr. West, Skepta has also made fans out of OVO leader Drake and Odd Future affiliate Earl Sweatshirt. A new cover story with Fader reveals Skepta set up studio time with both North American rappers.

But the question was asked if Skepta’s collaborations with Drizzy and Earl will cause him to bend to their respective musical styles. Or does the emcee/producer expect for the two performers to fall into the sound being established for his upcoming Konnichiwa album?

“I put P Diddy on a f*cking grime tune. I don’t care what they feel about it. They have to come on my wave – that’s the only thing that’s going to give my album what it needs,” said Skepta. “I understand the objective now, and I ain’t going to f*cking America to shoot a video. They need to come to the roads with me.”

Skepta is serious about creating a project that reflects his experiences, his lifestyle, and his city. The Nigerian descendant recognized the contrasts between the atmosphere of London versus the glamorous vibe of Hollywood.

“England is so black and white, so plain, like a burger with nothing on it. No salad, nothing. That’s why it’s so real,” Skepta added.

He continued, “I want anybody from around the world to be able to listen to the album and know it comes from London – from the beats, not just the vocals.”

Young Money Rapper Flow Wanted In New Orleans Double Murder!

Police have obtained a warrant for the arrest of New Orleans rapper Widner “Flow” Degruy, who they said is wanted in connection with the double murder of two brothers last week.

Kendrick and Kendred Bishop, ages 22 and 18, were found shot early May 25 inside a black Kia sedan in the 4800 block of Bright Drive in eastern New Orleans. Both died there, police said. Investigators have not released information on a motive for the shooting.

NOPD said surveillance video showed Degruy, 23, and a second unidentified suspect “possibly running from the scene and making a purchase at a nearby store.” Degruy appears in the video wearing a dark colored hooded shirt, police said. The other suspect wears a hat and short pants.

Degruy was signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment label in 2012. He would face two charges of second-degree murder, police said, and was identified as a suspect during Detective Gregory Johnson’s investigation.
