A student at Tennessee State University has been accused of contaminating her roommate's beverage with toilet water as part of a cruel prank that was caught on video. Tierni Williams, 20, was arrested on Tuesday on a single count of adulteration of food, liquid with bodily injury in connection to the incident that allegedly left her residence hall roommate at TSU feeling sick to her stomach. According to an arrest warrant, on October 5, the victim complained of unexplained weight loss, appetite suppression and digestive problems. She then learned through Snapchat that Williams had allegedly poured water from the toilet into her water bottles,
which were on Williams' side of the room. The warrant states that Williams was captured on video drawing water from the bathroom in a Styrofoam cup and adding it to bottled water belonging to her roommate.

Another week, another example of South Park's unexpected use of hip-hop. This one comes in the form of a new Killer Mike verse as the Run The Jewels rapper spits about mass incarceration... in nursing homes. The episode, titled "Hummels & Heroin," is a commentary on the current opioid crisis plaguing the U.S., and at some point, it compares living in a nursing home to being in prison. With his knack for political raps, Killer Mike was a natural choice to deliver a verse about the subject. “They put me here to die, left me angry and alone/For the crime of being old,
they threw me in this nursing home," Killer Mike spits on the track, before going on to use the same language sociologists use to describe the fundamental flaws of mass incarceration. As we alluded to before, South Park has either used or referenced hip-hop in three episodes so far this season. In the first episode of season 21, the show had a character perform a gruesome version of Kendrick Lamar's "Humble." A week later, Eric Cartman spoofed Logic's suicide-prevention song “1-800-273-8255.″ Listen to Killer Mike's bars about nursing homes below and read our list of South Park's funniest hip-hop moments when you're done listening.
This past Tuesday (Oct. 17), Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka'oir—now known as Keyshia Ka'oir-Davis—finally tied the knot, and their celebration was an epic one. How epic? Well, it turns out Gucci and his new wife helped themselves to a delicious-looking $75,000 wedding cake after the ceremony. Making it even crazier was Gucci slicing it with a literal sword. Seriously. According to TMZ, the cake was baked by Edda Martinez and Edda's Cake Designs over the course of three days. The baking might not even have been the hardest part, though, as planning for it took three months. The cake, which stood at 10-feet tall, included 8,000 handmade sugar flowers, 2,5000 Swarovski crystals (for decoration), red velvet, carrot, Jamaican rum cake, banana nut and amaretto.
Needless to say, that sounds amazing, and it almost makes you feel sad Gucci and Keyshia had to chop it all up with the Edda's-provided sword. Gucci and Keyshia's wedding was televised for BET's new miniseries, The Mane Event, a show chronicling the preparation for the couple's wedding. Attending the wedding itself, which served as the first episode, were the likes of Lil Yachty, Big Sean, Jhene Aiko, 2 Chainz and his wife Kesha, PeeWee Longway and much more. Peep Gucci and Keyshia's cake for yourself below. Watch Guwop slice it with a sword beneath the photo. In the vid, you can hear FIfth Harmony's Gucci-assisted single "Down" playing in the background.
Halloween is quickly approaching, and if you're thinking of going to Las Vegas, Drai's nightclub might make you confirm those plans. The famous venue is recruiting some major names for their Horror Story Halloween Celebration, including Future, Rae Sremmurd, Lil Wayne and even Trey Songz. According to reports, Drai's is hosting a five-night party series on top of The Cromwell on Oct. 26-29, as well as Halloween evening on Oct. 31. To kick things off on Thursday, DJ Crooked will be performing a killer set for clubgoers in honor of his own
birthday celebration, followed by Trigga on Friday. Future is slated to hit the stage on Saturday evening, and Weezy will be closing out the weekend on Sunday. Halloween night, however, belongs to Rae Sremmurd, as the "Black Beatles" duo will ring in the actual holiday. Fans who attend the concert on Halloween, however, could have a chance to win a $10,000 prize, as the group with the best coordinated costumes will split the cash.
The nightclub will not permit any attendees wearing masks. Vegas might just be the go-to spot this Halloween season, but we're sure there are tons of other parties being planned for fans in other areas. We'll keep you posted on any other plans that other rappers might be hosting.
When he's not going back and forth with angry Eminem fans on Twitter and giving his critique on different topics, Vince Staples is a creative machine flowing with a slew of ideas. His latest lightbulb spark comes with a pitch for FX, as he reveals his desire to direct the next season of American Horror Story. The Long Beach native tweets about his idea for the popular series, explaining that it would be about a blackout in the projects, but gives no further details. He even tags the FX network Twitter account, as well as the official American Horror Story account,
naming his idea "African American Horror Story." Hopefully Vince's tweets will push the show's creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk to ask for a meeting with the Big Fish Theory MC to talk more about the potential idea. If this actually happens, this wouldn't be the first time Staples dabbles in Hollywood. Recently, his "BagBak" single was featured in the trailer for the highly-anticipated Black Panther movie. He's also been on the small screen before, having made appearances on different shows, including The Daily Show and more.
Playboi Carti and Lil Uzi Vert are each having a monumental year, and now they want to celebrate their successes together on the road for the 16*29 Tour. The two hip-hop stars, who are big fans of one another, will be hitting up 18 cities and venues across the United States for the tour, which is slated to kick off next month, though it hasn't been officially announced yet.
Dates for the tour popped up online earlier this week naming G Herbo and SOB x RBE as fellow supporting acts, with festivities starting on Nov. 17 in Denver, Colo. While the pre-sale is slated to start tomorrow (Oct. 19), and general tickets are scheduled to open to the public on Oct. 20, the undetermined venue in Charlotte, N.C. won't be available for sale until Oct. 31. Dates have already appeared on Ticketmaster.
The major tour follows in the footsteps of Uzi and Carti's anticipated joint project, which they have been teasing since last month. There is no word on when the project may hit fans' ears, but the 16*29 Tour may provide a platform to premiere some new music for both rappers.

Ezekiel Elliott is eligible to play once again ... after being granted a temporary restraining order from a New York Southern District Court. As a result, Zeke's suspension has been put on hold for 14 days -- meaning the Cowboys RB can take the field for the team's next two games against the 49ers and Redskins, barring any further proceedings.
Last Thursday, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the preliminary injunction that prohibited the league from imposing the six-game suspension. Today's temporary restraining order now puts the 6-game ban back on ice.
Blac Chyna didn't get beaten up by Rob Kardashian as she claims ... SHE was the aggressor in a cocaine-fueled rage ... so say sources connected to the Kardashians. TMZ broke the story to JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 RADIO ATLANTA... Chyna is suing Rob, Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kim, Kylie and Kendall, claiming they conspired to torpedo her reality show and also caused her great pain over an alleged domestic violence incident in April. She says Rob knocked her to the ground and hit her in a rage. Our Kardashian sources say the real story is this ... they claim the day before the incident, Chyna was using coke and drinking alcohol from morning till night.
They say later that night Chyna and Rob went to a strip club and Chyna got a stripper to come home with them. We're told Chyna partied with the stripper all night long, doing more coke and continuing her drinking binge while Rob watched Dream and King Cairo. Our sources say Rob confronted Chyna the next morning, kicking the stripper out, calling Chyna irresponsible. He claims she went ballistic, hitting him, throwing things at him and berating him. Rob insists he only defended himself and never struck her. The sources say Rob actually had an appointment that day with the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services, which had an open case against Chyna. He says he protected her by not mentioning the incident.
Shawn Holley, the Kardashian lawyer, tells JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 ATLANTA, "We have witness statements and other evidence which will demonstrate conclusively that it is Chyna -- not Rob -- who is the violent and aggressive abuser." Our Kardashian source claims Chyna tried shaking the family down for millions before filing suit. We reached out to Chyna's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, who said, "There's no excuse for domestic violence." She did not comment on the allegations against her client.
If Travis Barker's looking for another side project it should be party planning ... because the 14th birthday bash he threw his son, Landon, shamed just about every over-the-top Sweet 16. Travis turned his backyard into a mini-concert and the headliner was Lil Pump. Pump's got the No. 3 album on the charts, so it's a big deal.
We're told there were around 100 guests, including Stevie Wonder's kids and other celeb spawns. Coolest part ... Landon got to share the stage with Pump and had a Louis Vuitton x Supreme-themed duffel bag cake. The teen summed it up perfectly ... "Last night was a movie."
Blac Chyna is now suing the entire Kardashian family saying they were responsible for putting the kibosh on her reality show with Rob, costing her a fortune -- but E! sources are saying that's BS, and there are emails that prove it. Chyna claims the Kardashians interfered with the shooting of "Rob & Chyna" to the point E! network pulled the plug, claiming production was impossible. In the lawsuit, obtained by JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 ATLANTA, Chyna says the network, the production company and the stars of the show -- herself and Rob -- were all on board to shoot a 2nd season. According to the suit, the Kardashians used their "power and influence over the E! network to kill the second season." However, our network sources say the couple split at the beginning of the show's first season, so a second was doubtful from the beginning.
However, sources connected to the network tell us they have documentation showing the reason the show was not picked up is because Chyna was making it impossible -- she refused to be in the same room as Rob ... so there would be no plausible way to shoot another season. We're also told E! was unhappy with anemic ratings. Chyna is also suing the family for battery over her claims Rob brutalized during an April domestic violence incident. In the suit, she says Rob grabbed her phone, knocked her to the ground ... and she ended up calling their son King's nanny for help. She claims Rob flipped out and tore her bedroom door off at the hinges.
She also claims Rob repeatedly threatened to kill himself, and the suit includes text messages where Rob says things like, "I'm literally on the verge of killing myself and u couldn't care less." She's also included a photo she says is Rob's hand filled with pills he was threatening to take to kill himself if she didn't immediately respond to his text.
After Boosie BadAzz's brother allegedly stole more than $300,000 from him, the sibling will not be charged. According to a report from JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 RADIO ATLANTA, the district attorney handling Taquari Hatch's case has refused to file charges against him, even though police booked him for allegedly taking $361,000 for Boosie's account. Hatch was originally hit with identity theft and fraud charges after cops discovered he was posing as Boosie to authorize multiple wire transfers. The brother has also maintained his innocence, saying in a video, "Knowing that you innocent is piece of mind that's priceless, and that's what I got in this situation." He added, "For the people that matter to me, all it's gonna take is a
little time for me to clear my name." Boosie recently spoke to XXL about his brother, revealing he cut his sibling off. "I’ve been going through this my whole life with money," the rapper said. "Money brings greed and this shit hurt me. I cut him off. I ain’t got time for that. That’s over $400,000. I don’t spend money out the bank. That was my kids' money. It just made me not to trust anybody. You learn from your mistakes. He’ll hurt more than I will." While it's uncertain if Hatch actually did steal the money, Boosie said he was hurt by the incident and revealed it was the first time he cried since being released from jail. "I ain’t cry since I came home [from prison] and that was the first time I did," he told us. "But it will be aight. That’s why God keep me here. He put me through all this crazy stuff and gives me a way to talk about it. So on the album you’ll hear about it." Up next for Boosie, the rapper is preparing for the release of his next album, BooPac, which is scheduled to release on Dec. 15.
Thirty-four years after his body was found abandoned on a power line, Georgia authorities believe they’ve finally solved the murder of 23-year-old Timothy Coggins. A decades-old investigation into Coggins’ death resulted in the arrests of five people Friday, Oct. 14, including two law enforcement officers accused of hindering the investigation, local station 11ALive reported. Authorities now believe the crime was racially-motivated. Coggins’ body was discovered on Oct. 9, 1983, in a grassy area near power lines in the city of Sunnyside, Ga. In a statement, the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office said the young man had been “brutally murdered” and showed visible signs of trauma on his body. “This was not meant to kill — this was meant to send a message,” Spalding County Sheriff Darrel Dix said during a news conference. “This was brutal.” Investigators questioned suspects and witnesses at the time, and spoke with people who knew Coggins, but the case ultimately went cold. This past March, however, new evidence came to light that prompted police to reexamine the case, Dix said.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation officially reopened the case in July. “We started getting phone calls from people that remembered it happening,” the sheriff said. “From people that were not even living in Georgia anymore were calling, saying, ‘I’ve held this in for the last 34 years and I’ve been afraid to say anything about it — but now I feel like I need to talk about it.’ And they did.” Thanks to the newly gathered evidence, local authorities were able to arrest five people Friday in connection with Coggins’ killing. Frankie Gebhardt, 59, and Bill Moore, Sr., 58, were arrested on numerous charges including murder, aggravated assault and concealing the death of another, according to 11Alive. Both were denied bond at a hearing Saturday morning. Lamar Bunn, an officer with the Milner Police Department, and his mother,
Sandra Bunn, were also arrested and charged with obstruction. Meanwhile, Gregory Huffman, a detention officer with the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office, was also charged with obstruction and violating his oath of office. Huffman was terminated from his job after his arrest and was being held on $35,000 for both charges. At the news conference, Dix said there was no doubt in investigators’ minds that Coggins’ murder was racially motivated, adding that if it the crime were committed today, it would be prosecuted as a hate crime. All of the suspects are white. “The goal in this whole thing is to get justice for Timothy Coggins and to get justice for the Coggins family,” Dix said. Several members of the slain man’s family were present at
Friday’s news conference when the arrests were announced. The family thanked the sheriff’s office and GBI for re-opening the case into their loved one’s death. “We know that there’s been tireless nights and we know that you guys have put in so many hours making sure that these people were brought to justice …’ ” said Coggins’ niece, Heather Coggins, according to WSB-TV. “The only unfortunate part in this is that our grandparents, Timothy Coggins’ parents, are not able to see this today.” Dix said there could be more arrests as authorities continue to investigate.
Blac Chyna and Tyga are willing to play nice with each other and even hang out together in public again, but only on one small -- yet growing -- condition ... namely, their son. Sources connected to the former couple tell JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 ATLANTA ... Chyna and Tyga's unexpected reunion this weekend for King Cairo's 5th birthday party at Six Flags was at least 2 months in the making, and mostly thanks to King's nanny.
We're told the nanny convinced the feuding exes to make peace during a 3-way phone convo. The impetus for burying the hatchet -- King was about to start kindergarten, which meant there would be upcoming activities requiring co-parenting. Before the peace summit, our sources say Chyna didn't even have Tyga's phone number -
but now the feeling is they're cool being near each other ... as long as King's third-wheeling. If nothing else, opening communication lines should help 'em avoid planning disasters like doubling up King's birthday themes.
Fresh off the release of his latest album, Mr. Davis, Gucci Mane has been announced as the face of Reebok Classic's new campaign. The campaign will focus on the company's latest iteration of its classic sneaker, the Workout Plus. Originally launched in 1986 as a fitness sneaker, the Workout Plus has seen a resurgence in recent years. "We are excited to welcome Gucci Mane to the Reebok family,” said Todd Krinsky, General Manager of Reebok Classic. “Gucci Mane has a deep heritage in music and lifestyle and natural ties to the Workout. We look forward to working together on the upcoming campaign.”
The rapper also praised the partnership, saying he was excited to join the Reebok family.

Elvis Presley Enterprises runs a disease-infested hotel where the water is full of bacteria infiltrating guests' lungs ... according to a new lawsuit. The company that runs all things Elvis has just been sued by Jennifer Walker, who says she stayed at the Guest House at Graceland this summer -- and contracted Legionnaires' disease during the vacay. Walker says she spent a lot of time at the hotel pool and hot tub and started suffering symptoms of the chronic lung affliction
-- such as coughing, difficulty breathing and loss of appetite -- and was diagnosed with Legionnaires' later that same month. According to the suit, a county health department investigation of the hotel -- which is right next to Graceland -- found the sprinkler system tested positive for Legionnella bacteria.
There have been other deaths allegedly tied to an outbreak at the hotel, and EPE is already facing a wrongful death lawsuit. Walker is suing for negligence and wants an unspecified amount in damages. To be clear, she is not suing Elvis' estate or the actual Graceland property.
The Migos are hard at work on the follow up to their platinum album, Culture. And we are about to get a new taste of the project. Quavo recently announced that the LP's new single will be coming out shortly. Hopping on Twitter, the Atlanta rapper revealed the good news to fans tweeting, "Bout to Drop The Single Off C U L T U R E 2 soon...." The group has been stacking records in anticipation of the LP, which is still sans a release date. "We got a lot of records. We got records with Ty Dolla $ign, records with Big Sean, records with Drake, records with Travis...we gon' keep it going," Quavo recently said, during an interview with MTV News' Gaby Wilson.
"Oooh, we on the way with it. Just like Culture 2. Just wait on it!" he added. The group has more than an album in the works. It was recently announced that they are putting together a movie, with Quavo writing the script. "I'm a '90s baby and all my favorite movies got all my dope artists in 'em," said Quavo Scorsese in a recent sit down, before listing films the group is inspired by. "Juice, Menace II Society, all the Snoop Dogg movies, Master P movies, I Got the Hook-Up, Baller Blockin' the Big Tymers movie. That's what we're doing right now. We're looking into the script." Big things poppin.'
NeNe Leakes will no longer be hosting the Xscape reunion tour after dropping a disgusting rape clapback at a heckler during one of her stand-up gigs. Xscape released a statement Thursday morning saying they were "dismayed" by NeNe's remarks. Although NeNe apologized, Xscape emphasized they came to the decision as supporters of all women, and stand by all female rape victims. They added, "This tour is for and about our fans
and we want to provide an entertaining and enjoyable experience for every single person who attends." They also wished NeNe the best as she "navigates this very difficult period." NeNe got booed last weekend in Oakland when she said she hoped a heckler got raped by their Uber driver. The 'Real Housewives' star apologized later saying she regretted uttering the words, especially as she is an abuse victim herself.
An illegal immigrant accused of beheading his mother in March may have the charges against him dropped, a local television station reported. Oliver Mauricio Funes-Machado, 18, has been accused of beheading his 35-year-old mother at their home in North Carolina on March 6. WNCN reported a judge is expected to sign an order that will drop the first degree murder charges against him after he ruled he’s not mentally competent to stand trial. After Funes-Machado allegedly decapitated his mother, Yesenia Funes Beatriz Machado, he walked out of his home “carrying a knife in one hand and a severed human head in the other,” an affidavit reportedly stated. The man reportedly told a 911 dispatcher he stabbed his mother “like eight times,”
left the knife “in her mouth” and beheaded her “because I felt like it,” according to an earlier report from WNCN. Funes-Machado was described in March as a “pretty profoundly disturbed young man” by a public defender, who, according to a family friend, said he was “very isolated.” Boyd Sturges, attorney for Funes-Machado, said that if there comes a time when his client is found to be competent to stand trial, he’ll be re-charged. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed in March that Funes-Machado is in the country illegally, and is originally from Honduras. If the judge signs the order, Funes-Machado will reportedly be involuntarily committed to an unknown facility in the town of Butner, around 20 minutes away from Durham. Until then, Funes-Machado is being held at Central Prison in Raleigh.
A 22-year-old woman who was shot and killed by police after crashing into an officer with her car was an aspiring lawyer, her relatives have said. Cariann Hithon had been celebrating her birthday when she crashed her black BMW into three vehicles in Miami. As a crowd gathered around her car, Ms Hithon sped forwards, knocking one Florida police officer to the ground before another quickly fired three shots at her. Her car then swerved across the road and crashed. Ms Hithon was taken to a nearby hospital where she died of her wounds. The police officer she hit, David Cajuso, has been released from hospital and is recovering at home,
the Miami Beach police department said. According to the Miami Herald, investigators believe Ms Hithon and her friend, who got out of the car before she accelerated, had been drinking heavily. In social media footage of the shooting, one bystander can be heard saying the driver was "drunk as sh**." Cary Hithon said his daughter's actions were "out of character." He told CBS Miami the aspiring lawyer "wanted to make a difference in the lives of people who weren't as fortunate as her." She had recently transferred from Hampton University in Virginia to Temple University in Philadelphia and was expected to graduate with a degree in political sciences. Prosecutors have opened an inquiry into whether police acted lawfully in shooting and killing Ms Hithon. Listen Live JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 Atlanta Newest Hip Hop and R&B Station.com
Sounds like Rick Ross has responded to Birdman's rant. "You a year late and five years late paying that man his money. Pay that man his money," Ross says in the video below. "Stop with the jokes. Bring that shit. Bring it." Later on, he says, "Shut up and pay n***as." The Birdman and Lil Wayne beef seems to be at a quieter place these days, but fans of Weezy still aren't backing down against the Cash Money CEO for offering up the money he allegedly owes. Fans, friends and more have been riding hard for Wayne against Baby on social media for the past year or so, and now, Birdman is responding to the comments.
Going on Instagram Live for fans and critics to hear him speak, the hip-hop mogul addresses those that keep telling him he needs to pay Lil Wayne the money he owes him. Not only does he call Weezy his son, and assures fans that he's going to make sure he's straight, he then goes in on critics and tells them to not play with him. "On G though, right? I be hearing all you niggas talking about this Lil Wayne shit. Lil Wayne this, Lil Wayne that," he says in the video. "Bitch, Lil Wayne my son. I raised him. He ain't had nothin', and I brought him to be something, and he got some. Bitch, you think I ain't gonna make sure
he straight? Suck a nigga dick, bitch. I'm gonna show all you pussy niggas that got in my business, fuck you nigga. I'm gonna show you don't play with me, nigga. I'm what you call a fucking real mastermind." Further along in the 11-minute stream, Birdman continues to come hard at the critics by calling them "pussy" and insinuates that things could get worse amongst him and Weezy if people keep pressing him.
Playboi Carti is nominated for two awards at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards, but before the rapper could take home any trophies, Carti hit the stage to perform his biggest hits, "Wokeuplikethis" and "Magnolia." While rocking an "I love New York" sweater, Carti performed a portion of "Wokeuplikethis." The rapper was then joined by a number of female backup dancers and some dudes from his crew to perform "Magnolia." As Carti rapped,
the dancers milly rocked and Harlem shaked across the stage. Carti is up for the Best New Hip-Hop Artist award and Best Mixtape for his self-titled project. See the full list of 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards winners here.
Cardi B wins Best New Hip-Hop Artist and much more at the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards Tuesday night (Oct. 10). She beats out Aminé, Kodak Black, Playboi Carti and Tee Grizzley. "I want to thank everybody again, but I want to thank Jesus," she says while accepting the award onstage. "This has been one of the greatest nights of my life but you, you're going to make it better," Cardi continued while pointing at her boyfriend Offset.
The Bronx native is probably one of the hottest artists out right now, period. Her single "Bodak Yellow" is now the longest running No. 1 single from a solo female rapper in Hot 100 history—she has surpassed Lauryn Hill‘s “Doo Wop (That Thing)”, which previously held the title in 1998. The record has already reached platinum status and also helped her own dentist triple her business since the song’s release. Earlier in the night at the awards show,
the 24-year-old rapper performed "Bodak Yellow" and won Hustler of the Year. Cardi B also won Single of the Year for "Bodak Yellow," Made-You-Look Award (Best Hip-Hop Style) and Best Mixtape for Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 2. In total, she walked away with five awards. The BET Hip Hop Awards were previously filmed in Miami on Oct. 6.
Lil B is never one to bite his tongue, but on Tuesday (Oct. 10), it was revealed the rapper’s recent comments led to a suspension from Facebook. According to a report from Motherboard, a Facebook representative confirmed the rapper has been banned for 30 days after violating the website’s hate speech policies. It’s uncertain what Lil B said, as Facebook revealed the offending posts had been deleted from the site. On Monday (Oct. 9), the rapper tweeted about the incident, writing, “Found out Facebook banned me for 30 days because I was talking about white people…
got it.” As of late, Lil B has been actively discussing social issues on Twitter and Facebook, such as race in America, double standards around visual codes and the legacy of slave ownership in the U.S. While it’s uncertain when the ban went into effect, the rapper had also previously tweeted about it on Oct. 4, writing, “Everyone let the world no that lil b Facebook has been blocked and I can’t log in!

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is the latest to stir up controversy regarding the NFL protests, as he recently stated that any Cowboys player that “disrespects” the flag won’t play, and Common has some serious thoughts on the matter. The veteran rapper, who has always been vocal about social issues, and he claims Jones is showing his “slave owner mentality” in his handling of the protests. Common believes Jones’ attitude is unpatriotic based on the fact that this country encourages freedom of speech and the right to protest for beliefs. “To me, it’s an owner mentality,” Common told JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 ATLANTA.
“It’s like a slave owner mentality, to be honest. Like, ‘You gonna do what I say on this.’ Nobody disrespecting the jib, they’re just saying this is how I want to place my body during this anthem.” The “Glory” MC also says players should be able to kneel for what they believe in, and even makes reference to the poem that the National Anthem is based on, which makes a mention of slavery. ”If somebody says, ‘I’m kneeling for what I believe in,’ then they should be able to do that because that’s what this country is about.” Listen Live www.jamz101atl.com CHECK US OUT.

Papa Bear took several of his kids, including Baby Future and daughter London, to the Happiest Place on Earth. Friends, like Jus Bleezy, and other family members tagged along for the weekend adventure. Sources tell JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 Atlanta Newest Hip Hop and R&B Station
the rapper's making the most of downtime in the middle of his Hndrxx World Tour -- and he was into it ... even taking time to pump up his 3-year-old son for a spin on the carousel. No word on if Future hit up Tomorrowland ... but ya gotta figure.
2 Chainz has a lotta nerve skipping out on his Rolls-Royce tab ... according to a high-end auto broker who's suing to get the dough. Highline Holdings Group says 2 Chainz hired them to lock down a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead, but when it came time to pay, the rapper was a little absent-minded. According to the docs, obtained by JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 ATLANTA Newest Hip Hop Station, Highline negotiated a $262,212 price,
to which Chainz agreed and paid most of that sum.
He had an outstanding balance of $18,317, and when Highline contacted him he refused to fork over one more penny ...
according to the suit. Even though the exotic ride was delivered to his home in Georgia, the broker insists 2 Chainz won't pay. Highline's suing to get the balance plus interest. So far, no word from 2 Chainz.
Al Sharpton says he's ready to call for a boycott over ESPN's suspension of Jemele Hill -- telling TMZ Sports, "We will not stand for her to be suspended." Sharpton says it's "outrageous" for ESPN to bench Hill for her tweets about Cowboys owner Jerry Jones -- since she was merely trying to instruct fans upset with JJ's comments on how they could be heard. As we previously reported, Jones said he would bench any player who disrespected the flag. Hill tweeted, to concerned fans --
"If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers." ESPN suspended Hill for 2 weeks claiming she violated the network's social media policy. Sharpton says if the network doesn't back off Hill soon, there will be hell to pay. Kevin Durant says he's 100% behind Jemele Hill "standing up for what she believes in" ... telling TMZ Sports he totally supports the embattled ESPN star. "I'm behind Jemele --
I support her," Durant told us outside Poppy in L.A. Donald Trump came at ESPN on Friday for Hill's "white supremacist" tweet -- demanding the network "apologize for untruth" ... this after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called Hill's comment a "fireable offense."
Of course, KD has his own issues with POTUS -- remember when he told us he "don't f**k with" the Donald? Yeah, not a fan ... but still, having an MVP publicly support Hill is a HUGE deal.
Judge Mathis has Jemele Hill's back in a big way -- and says if she tried to sue ESPN over her 2-week suspension, "I think she'd win." "I support her 100% in everything she has done to express her 1st amendment rights," Mathis told us ... "and if it violates policy of ESPN then perhaps ESPN has a policy that's unconstitutional." Mathis says he has no doubt Hill would be victorious in court -- but a nasty drawn-out legal battle could cost Jemele her career ... and she needs to decide if the juice is worth the squeeze. ESPN has suspended "SportsCenter" anchor Jemele Hill for 2 weeks -- after she "violated social media guidelines" by encouraging people upset with Jerry Jones to boycott his sponsors.
Hill was reacting to the Dallas Cowboys owners' statement that any players who "disrespect the flag" will not play for his team. "If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers. Don't place the burden squarely on the players," Hill tweeted. There were more tweets -- each with the same sentiment. ESPN clearly feels Hill crossed the line and hit her with a 2-week suspension. "Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines," ESPN says. "She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet.
In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such actions would have consequences. Hence this decision." Hill had been in hot water before ... after calling Donald Trump a "white supremacist."
It's not exactly a dream ad for Jack in the Box ... Ralphie May chowed down on Jalapeno Poppers and a Chicken Sandwich at 1 AM Friday, and 10 hours later he was dead. We now know Ralphie's last hours. After performing at Harrah's Thursday night, he and a few other comedians went to Jack in the Box, got take out and went to the
private residence where Ralphie was staying with a fellow comedian. Ralphie took his bag of food into his room at around 1 AM, shut the door and that's the last time anyone saw him alive. He had a habit of sleeping until noon, so no one thought of checking on him, until Ralphie's assistant showed up just after 12 PM and opened his bedroom door. The assistant found Ralphie unconscious on the floor.
We're told it appears he was sitting on the side of the bed when the heart attack struck and he fell over. Paramedics came but said there was nothing they could do. He was dead. We're told there were no drugs found. In fact, Ralphie famously carried a vape pen, but it had been a long stretch since he used it. One source who was with him nightly says although Ralphie had been battling pneumonia for 6 weeks, he was "80 to 90% better" the night before he died. We're also told he was in good spirits, although there was one serious source of conflict ...
his divorce and his estranged wife. Ralphie felt his wife would not let go of their marriage and was trying to punish him, using their 2 kids as a weapon. People in Ralphie's life are extremely upset, because his estranged wife now has complete control of his estate since the divorce was not final. We're told she had closed off many of the people who were close to Ralphie and worked with him.
Rapper Nelly has finally broken his silence about the second-degree rape allegations made against him, HotNewHipHop (HNHH) reported. In a series of tweets Saturday, the St. Louis-born rapper thanked his fans for their love and support and also apologized for the embarrassment that he has brought to them. At the same time, Nelly also maintained his innocence. “Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation. I am completely innocent, I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation,” Nelly tweeted.
"I do want to apologize to my loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting myself in a situation where I could be victimized by this false and defaming allegation," he wrote in another tweet. "In other words, Y'all know damn well I ain't do no dumb S--- like this..!! Love," Nelly wrote in one of the tweets. “I also want to thank my fans for their unwavering support. They know me. I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim. Thank you,” his tweet read. Hours after he was released, Nelly sent out another tweet informing his fans about his release.
“To be absolutely clear. I have not been charged with a crime, therefore, no bail was required. I was released, pending further investigation,” he wrote. Nelly was arrested Saturday morning after a woman lodged a complaint against the rapper stating that he had sexually assaulted her on a tour bus after a show in Auburn, Washington, HNHH reported. In an email to USA Today, his lawyer Scott Rosenblum said: "Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation. Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation."
This is not the first time the rapper has faced an arrest. In 2015, he was arrested by Putnam County Sheriff's Department (PCSD) in Cookeville, Tennessee, for felony possession of drugs, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Nelly was released the following day on bail. Born Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., the 42-year-old rapper is a three-time Grammy winner. He had produced a number of hits including "Hot in Herre" and "Dilemma." He has been referred to as “one of the biggest stars of the new millennium” by journalist Peter Shapiro. He has been ranked as the fourth best-selling rap artist in American history with 21 million albums sold in the U.S.
Cornell Haynes Jr., better known as the rapper Nelly, was taken into custody Saturday in Washington state after a woman told police he raped her. Police arrested Nelly in the early morning and took him to a jail in Des Moines, Washington, according to a report from the police department in nearby Auburn. He was booked for investigation of rape in the second-degree and released a few hours later. The report says a woman called 911 at 3:48 a.m. Saturday to report the alleged assault, which she says occurred on Nelly's tour bus. Police said Nelly, 42, had performed at the White River Amphitheater in King County just hours before the phone call was made. He was arrested "after patrol officers investigated the incident," according to the report.
Nelly tweeted Saturday afternoon that he is "completely innocent" and confident he will be vindicated. "I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation," he wrote. "I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation." Nelly's attorney, Scott Rosenblum, said the "allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness." "I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges," Rosenblum said in a statement. "Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation."
Nelly was once one of the reigning kings of hip-hop. He shot to fame nearly 20 years ago with the track "Country Grammar." During the height of his career, he won three Grammy awards and regularly appeared on the Billboard 200. The rapper has had previous run-ins with the law. In 2015, Nelly pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to E! News.
Cam Newton has, after a little over a day that has almost felt like weeks, issued his apology for remarks made to Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue at a Wednesday press conference. "After careful thought, I understand that my word choice was extremely degrading and disrespectful to women," he said. "And to be honest that was not my intentions. If you are a person who took offense to what I said,
I sincerely apologize. I'm a man who tries to be a positive role model in my community and tries to use my platform to inspire others. I take ownership to everything that comes with that and what I did was extremely unacceptable." Newton continued, saying that he's a father to two daughters, and tries to inspire them to be whomever they want to be. Your thoughts? Call JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 ATLANTA 404-351-4222 www.jamz101atl.com
Just when you’ve think you’ve heard every Rick Pitino scandal there is, the Louisville beat is there to remind you there’s more dirt. It appeared as if Pitino had gotten nothing more than a slap on the wrist when he received a five-game suspension for the upcoming season. That punishment came after the news broke that a former director of basketball operations had been providing exotic dancers and prostitutes to players and recruits for several years. Since then, Pitino’s career has had a domino effect. In October of 2014 in an interview with Campus Insiders’
Seth Davis, Pitino called for shoe companies to be less influential in the recruiting process. However, he said it was a difficult issue to address considering his “pockets are lined with shoe money.” Fans never knew the extent of that comment until now. A week after being suspended indefinitely because of his involvement in a federal bribery scandal, a new development has reached the surface. The Courier-Journal reported that the Cardinal coach has been receiving 98 percent of the money from Louisville’s current deal with Adidas. This a deal that former Louisville Athletic Director Tom Jurich claimed was for the department and the student athletes. “It’s for the athletic department,” Jurich said. “It’s for these student-athletes.
It’s been earmarked for them.” Not so much. The report claims that Pitino raked in $3 million over a two-year span, while the athletic department only received $35,000. Over the past nine years, he has made an estimated $145 million just off of the Adidas deal, per the report. The current contract expires July 1. Many are questioning how much money Louisville coaches will receive from the new Adidas contract, which is worth $79 million over 10 years. Seeing that Louisville is currently under investigation for reportedly funneling $100,000 to a recruit through Adidas, the future of the partnership is drenched with uncertainty.
Dwyane Wade could not help but praise his wife after she opening up about her fertility struggle. The NBA star, 35, wrote a tweet in support of his wife, actress Gabrielle Union, 44, who revealed that she had experienced “eight or nine miscarriages.” “My wife is one strong individual!!!” Wade tweeted. The Being Mary Jane star opened up about her struggles with infertility in her new book, We’re Going to Need More Wine — excerpted exclusively in the new issue of PEOPLE. “I have had eight or nine miscarriages,” Union writes in the book. “For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant — I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle.”
But even after enduring three years of failed IVF cycles and being constantly bloated from the hormones, Union writes that she and Wade “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.” The couple married in August 2014, and she quickly got the hang of raising three boys: Wade’s nephew Dahveon Morris, 16, and sons from a previous marriage Zaire, 15, and Zion, 10 (Wade’s third son Xavier, 3, conceived with another woman while Wade and Union were broken up, lives with his mother).
“I never wanted kids,” she tells PEOPLE. “Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I’d rather be than with them.” “For so many women, and not just women in the spotlight, people feel very entitled to know, ‘Do you want kids?'” she says. “A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say ‘no’ because that’s a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on. People mean so well, but they have no idea the harm or frustration it can cause.” For more on Gabrielle Union’s infertility struggles, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.

CAM NEWTON DISSES 'FEMALE' REPORTER ... Reporter's Pissed and she’s understandably upset. via TMZ: The Carolina Panthers QB was taking questions from the media when Jourdan Rodrigue asked how he felt about WR Devin Funchess being more physical when running his routes. Newton laughed and then said, “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.” Jourdan — who covers the Panthers for the Charlotte Observer —
replied on Twitter, “I don’t think it’s ‘funny’ to be a female and talk about routes. I think it’s my job.” When asked if anyone spoke with Cam after the incident she said, “I spoke with him after and it was worse.” “I chose not to share, because I have an actual job to do today and one he will not keep me from.”
Nia Guzman has been accused of intimidating an ex-friend who claims to be a witness in her custody battle with Chris Brown. via TMZ: The ex-friend, Skakur Sozahdah, is requesting a restraining order against Brown’s baby mama — and in the docs she says Nia’s been parking in front of her house and “sprinkling a weird substance” in her yard. Shakur also claims Nia’s been texting her like crazy and bad-mouthing her and other family members. As for why? According to the docs, Nia’s been begging Shakur for a face-to-face meeting.
Shakur claims she’s a witness in Nia’s custody battle over 3-year-old Royalty … and thinks Nia is using scare tactics so she won’t testify against her. Nia denies the allegations, and according to a rep … she hasn’t seen Shakur since early 2017. Still, the judge granted the restraining order, forcing Nia to stay 50 yards away from Shakur. Shakur is the same woman Nia accused of threatening her, and in fact got a restraining order against her on Tuesday. This whole situation is an unnecessary mess.
There’s definite bad blood brewing between NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak. On her way back from the cast trip to Barcelona, NeNe took to Instagram to take several shots at Kim for allegedly making comments about NeNe living in a ‘roach infested’ home.
We’re not sure when Kim’s comments about NeNe’s home were made (since Kim didn’t go on the trip) and NeNe didn’t mention anyone by name in her post — BUT her hashtags made it perfectly clear she’s talking about Kim. She added: #jealousprejudicebitch
The next time you see Gabrielle Union looking a little bloated, you may not want to speculate about her possible impending motherhood. The “Being Mary Jane” star is once again opening up about IVF treatment. But this time, she’s revealing she’s had several miscarriages in the last three years. “I have had eight or nine miscarriages,” Union wrote in her memoir, “We’re Gonna Need More Wine,” in an excerpt obtained by People magazine. “For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant — I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle.” Union admitted she didn’t always want children. However, something changed after she wed Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dwyane Wade in 2014. She became a stepmother to his three children and helped raise his nephew. Then, she realized “there was no place I’d rather be than with them.” “For so many women — and not just women in the spotlight — people feel very entitled to know, ‘Do you want kids?’” Union wrote. “A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say ‘no’ because that’s a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on. People mean so well, but they have no idea the harm or frustration it can cause.” Union knows that all too well as she has had to combat pregnancy rumors throughout her marriage. Last year, she took to Twitter to shut down such reports.
Lil Wayne has missed 15 important birthdays if you believe the woman who claims her son was fathered by the rapper. Keiotia Watson claims in legal docs she had a sexual relationship with Wayne back in June 2001 and he got her pregnant. She says their son -- named Dwayne, Weezy's government name -- was born in February 2002. Watson went to court 2 years ago to establish paternity and get child support.
A Louisiana judge ruled in her favor and ordered Wayne to fork over $5k a month, but he hasn't paid a dime. Our Wayne sources say he hasn't paid because he was never served with legal papers or notified he's legally the father. One source close to Wayne says the rapper plans to take a paternity test and if he's the dad he'll take full responsibility and pay the piper. Weezy has 4 other children (3 sons and a daughter) with 4 different baby mamas .... the list may well grow by 1.

Travis Scott may have the range like James Harden has but he definitely doesn’t have the NBA star’s jumpshot. During a recent Houston Rockets team practice, the “Butterfly Effect” rapper got to show off his basketball skills but clearly didn’t impress Harden. After throwing up a few bricks, Harden can be heard making fun of La Flame’s jumper. Despite a few bad shots, Scott was able to get a rhythm and eventually made a couple shots, including two three pointers in a row. While Scott’s ball skills may not be the greatest,
if there’s one thing the rapper knows how to do well, it’s a tour. After wrapping up his Birds Eye View Tour, which included a giant mechanical bird on stage, Scott wants to bring rides to his next trek. During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the rapper said the tour for his next project, AstroWorld, will double as an amusement park. “I don’t know why it hasn’t been done already – I think people just don’t do shit. Who makes stages these days that are cool?” he said. But before Scott goes on tour again, the rapper may be expecting a child.
According to recent reports from TMZ, Travis and Kylie Jenner are expecting a baby girl. The gossip site reports that Scott has been telling his friends about the news and claims Kylie is already five months pregnant.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Fans of rapper Lil Wayne will be offered refunds after he refused to pass through a security check to enter a South Carolina arena, and skipped the concert. A statement Sunday by managers of the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia says Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., refused to enter the building when security workers sought to apply “the venue’s standard safety procedures.”
The arena’s management says it wasn’t willing to make an exception for the headliner of Saturday night’s show “and jeopardize safety.” Tory Lanez, 2 Chainz and Cardi B performed as scheduled. Lil Wayne’s representative did not respond to an email seeking comment Sunday. He spent eight months in a New York City jail for gun possession after police found the weapon on his tour bus as he left a 2007 concert.

What's Gucci? Oh, just rampant sexual harassment at one of its high-end stores ... so claims an ex-employee in a new lawsuit. Chanel Falasco is suing the giant luxury brand claiming her manager at the downtown Chicago store followed her into a storage room and pulled out his penis. According to the suit, he also bombarded her with crude comments about her ass and gave her the nickname ... "booty." In docs, obtained by TMZ,
Falasco says the manager tried kissing her and grabbed her by the neck, torso and ass. She claims in 2015 she was mortified when he pulled down his pants in the storage room ... and told her to perform oral sex on him, or "at least just touch it." Falasco says she complained to a higher-up, but Gucci didn't do nearly enough to address the situation ... especially because it knew the manager had behaved inappropriately with other employees before. She's suing for unspecified damages. We've reached out to Gucci, so far no word back.
U.S. Postal Service letter carrier Gabriel Anno found his workday interrupted Wednesday when police arrested him. Fountain County prosecutors accused 25-year-old Anno of dealing marijuana, dealing in controlled substances, possession of cocaine, possession of a machine gun, possession of marijuana and controlled substances.

Kenya Moore's husband is still MIA for the filming of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," and it's cost her a lot of moola, a trip to Spain and maybe her gig itself. 'RHOA' production sources tell us, the cast is on its annual trip for the show -- this time in Barcelona -- except for Kenya. We're told she was invited initially and in the lead up to the trip even participated in scenes where the cast was talking about it. But then ... producers
yanked her invite. Why? Our sources say Bravo told Kenya she needed to film scenes leading up to the trip with hubby Marc Daly, ?but he wasn't down. Producers felt she was just making more excuses for Marc's lack of participation, so the invite got yanked. 'Housewives' get paid per episode, and now Kenya will miss out on some big paychecks. As we reported ... producers gave Kenya an ultimatum -- get your hubby on 'RHOA' or get phased out. It seems the latter is happening.
Khloe Kardashian's boyfriend is going to be her baby daddy now ... so he's stepping up his real estate game for the sake of his family. Our Kardashian sources tell us ... Tristan Thompson's plan to simply rent a place in L.A. went out the window as soon as the couple found out she was pregnant. Now we're told he's looking to buy a pad in Bel Air, Bev Hills or the Hollywood Hills.
As we reported ... Khloe and Tristan were out hunting for a rental for him in July, looking for places in the $60k a month range. Our sources say now that he's planning to become an L.A. homeowner ... his budget's around $20 million. We're told Tristan wants his own place in the city so they don't have to drive back to Khloe's house in Calabasas ... which is about an hour away. And he probably wants to design his own baby room, too. Listen Live Atlanta's Newest Hip Hop and R&B Station: www.jamz101atl.com
LAS VEGAS, Nevada, Oct 2 (Reuters) - A gunman killed at least 50 people and wounded more than 200 at a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday, raining down rapid fire from the 32nd floor of a hotel for several minutes before he was shot dead by police. The death toll, which police emphasized was preliminary and tentative, would make the attack the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, eclipsing last year's massacre of 49 people at an Orlando night club. Thousands of panicked people fled the scene, in some cases trampling one another as law enforcement officers scrambled to locate and kill the gunman. Shocked concertgoers, some with blood on their clothes, wandered the streets after the attack. Police identified the gunman as area resident Stephen Paddock, 64, but said they had no
information yet about his motive. He was not believed to be connected to any militant group, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters. "We have no idea what his belief system was," Lombardo said. "Right now, we believe he was the sole aggressor and the scene is static." "We've located numerous firearms within the room that he occupied," Lombardo said. Authorities believed they had located Paddock's roommate, who they identified as Marilou Danley. He gave no details of whether she was suspected of involvement in the attack but described her as an "associate." Police had located two cars that belonged to the suspect. The dead included one off-duty police officer, while at least one other officer was critically injured, Lombardo said. Police warned the death toll may rise. Video taken of the attack showed panicked crowds fleeing as sustained rapid gunfire ripped through the area.
Las Vegas's casinos, nightclubs and shopping draw some 3.5 million visitors from around the world each year and the area was packed with visitors when the shooting broke out shortly after 10 p.m. (0400 GMT). Mike McGarry, a 53-year-old financial adviser from Philadelphia, said he was at the concert when he heard hundreds of shots ring out. "It was crazy - I laid on top of the kids. They're 20. I'm 53. I lived a good life," McGarry said. The back of his shirt bore footmarks, after people ran over him in the panicked crowd. Many casinos in
the area locked their doors during the incident to keep out any potential attackers, some using handcuffs to do so, according to witnesses. "Caesar's Palace had locked their doors. They wouldn't let you in," said Adam Mitchell, a 31-year-old tourist visiting from Britain. The shooting broke out on the last night of the three-day Route 91 Harvest festival, a sold-out event attended by thousands and featuring top acts such as Eric Church, Sam Hunt and Jason Aldean. "Tonight has been beyond horrific," Aldean said in a statement on Instagram. "It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night."
The rampage was reminiscent of a mass shooting at a Paris rock concert in November 2015 that killed 89 people, part of a coordinated attack by Islamist militants that left 130 dead. The concert venue was in an outdoor area known as Las Vegas Village, across the Strip from the Mandalay Bay and the Luxor hotels. "Our thoughts & prayers are with the victims of last night's tragic events," the Mandalay Bay said on Twitter.

Earlier this week, 43-year-old Corey McClendon was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in the shooting that left Memphis rapper Young Dolph hospitalized in Hollywood. But today (Sept. 29), Greg Risling, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, said McClendon had been released by police earlier Friday after prosecutors asked for “further investigation.” Risling didn’t say what kind of investigation was being sought, according to USA Today. “Under California law, if you are arrested and booked and no charges are filed within 48 hours, you have to be released,” said Risling. He also said police had to gather more evidence, “come back to us with a case and then [the district attorney] will decide whether to file charges.
” McClendon was held for 48 hours on $1 million bond as a suspect in the shooting of Dolph in the valet parking area of a Loews Hotel. He is an affiliate of Yo Gotti, the fellow Memphis rapper who’s had public issues with Dolph for years now. Gotti was initially reported to be a person of interest, but the LAPD later denied that. Police said Dolph got into an argument with three men outside the Loews Hotel when one of them knocked him down and shot him multiple times with a handgun. The three men reportedly fled,
with one taking off in a golden Cadillac Escalade before ditching it nearby. Police are still looking for two more suspects. After managing to drag himself into a Shoe Palace nearby, Dolph was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery. He is now said to be in stable condition.

"America's Next Top Model" winner Eva Marcille has a real chance of joining next season's cast of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' because she's already stirring the pot with a few cameos. 'RHOA' is currently filming season 10. Our production sources tell us Eva shot with the cast last Friday at an event for Kandi Burruss and she did so well, they've made her a part-time cast member. We're told
Eva's able to throw shade with the best of them but can also put on a smile for the ladies when she needs to. Producers hope her on-cam success continues so they can bring her on full-time for season 11. As we reported ... Eva's already filmed a few scenes with NeNe Leakes. It's unclear who, if anyone, she'd replace next year ... but one thing is for sure ... those Housewives are ruthless.
Former Bad Boy Records singer/producer Mario Winans got arrested for some serious deadbeat daddery ... as in $178,000 ... TMZ has learned. Sheriff's deputies took Mario -- who featured on Diddy's hit, "I Need a Girl Part 2" -- into custody Wednesday in Bergen County, New Jersey for failure to pay back child support. According to docs, he's supposed to be paying $3,500 per month for his kid ... so he's clearly way behind. In docs,
Mario says he makes about $3,000 per month off his songwriting. He told the court he could secure a loan to immediately pay offr $10,000 off the debt. That satisfied the judge enough that Winans was released, but with a GPS ankle monitor.

Diddy and DJ Khaled are deep in negotiations with Fox for a new talent competition show, "The Four," and this one's different from all the rest. Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ, neither of them have signed but negotiations are far along. We're told there will be 4 judges -- Diddy is the mogul, DJ Khaled is the producer ... there will also be a songwriter, and the 4th judge will be a performer. At least one of the remaining 2 spots will be a woman.
The centerpiece of the show will be contemporary pop with an emphasis on hip hop. It will be an ongoing battle, with new competitors trying to knock out the front-runners. In the end, the winner will get the entire judges panel behind them to launch their career -- a mogul, a producer, a songwriter, and someone to perform onstage with. No word on when the show will premiere, but it sounds different ... and interesting.
Two temporary crew members on tour with The Weeknd are under criminal investigation after a woman claims she was raped backstage following the singer's show ... but we're told The Weeknd was out of the building before the alleged crime went down. Law enforcement sources tell us a woman filed a report with the Ohio State University police station early Wednesday morning, claiming she was raped following The Weeknd's show at the Schottenstein Center. Sources with knowledge of the situation tell us the woman was in a backstage area with two crew members. Our sources say it's possible one
of the suspects filmed the attack. We're told employees hired for the tour can vary from city to city ... the two suspects are not a part of The Weeknd's inner circle. According to the police report, cops believe everyone was drunk during the alleged rape. The report says "hands, feet and teeth" were the "weapons" used in the sexual asault. The Weeknd had left the arena before the alleged rape and is not involved. The XO Tour Manager and Live Nation Team tell us, "Upon learning of the accusations that two members of our tour staff are facing, we immediately terminated their employment. We are working with the authorities to ensure they have access to any information or assistance they may need." We're told the incident is under investigation and no arrests have been made.
Taylor Swift just got served a can of whoop ass ... courtesy of Cardi B, whose track "Bodak Yellow" just bumped T-Swizzle from the top of the singles chart. We got Cardi Monday at Atlantic Records in NYC where she was celebrating her spot on the
Billboard Hot 100 throne with champagne and shade ... which she hilariously threw at Taylor during a speech you gotta see. Cardi's only the second female rapper to top the Hot 100 without featuring someone else on the song. Lauryn Hill was the last to do it with "Doo Wop (That Thing)" in 1998. Congrats, Cardi!
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are having a baby girl ... sources directly connected with the couple tell JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 ATLANTA. TMZ broke the story ... Kylie is pregnant and Travis has been telling friends about the sex of the baby, but now family sources tell us Travis wasn't lyin'. We've also learned Travis has been privately telling friends about the pregnancy for nearly 2 months, and Kylie is around 5 months pregnant.
What's interesting about the timing ... Kim and Kanye are also expecting a baby via surrogate, and their kid is due around mid January. That means their baby will be born around the same time as Kylie's. BTW, we broke the story ... Kim and Kanye are also having a girl. Maybe a discount at Cedars is in the works.
The New York Knicks have reached agreement on a trade to send All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder, league sources told The Vertical. The Thunder will send center Enes Kanter, forward Doug McDermott and a 2018 second-round draft pick from the Chicago Bulls to the Knicks, league sources told The Vertical. A trade call is planned for Monday, with Anthony expected to waive his no-trade clause, league sources said. For Oklahoma City, the acquisition of Anthony pairs him with two elite
All-Stars in guard Russell Westbrook and forward Paul George. The Thunder traded for both George and Anthony this summer with the mindset of contending for a championship and competing with star-studded teams in Golden State and Houston. Anthony had long wanted a trade to the Houston Rockets in the offseason, but opened up his list of desired destinations recently and accepted the trade to Oklahoma City on Saturday.
Authorities who are on the hunt for the Kevin Hart extortionists now believe they will catch the culprits ... based on a treasure trove of evidence they've just seized. TMZ broke the story, search warrants have already been executed and now we know the information authorities have amassed connects multiple people they believe were involved in the plot to squeeze 7 figures from Hart in return for keeping the sex tape secret. We're told phone records seized are critical ... showing who called who and when. But we know authorities also have their sights set on cellphones and computer hard drives.
As for who the culprits are ... authorities are keeping that close to the vest, but we're told none of the suspects are part of Kevin's world. We're told there were a number of people partying with Kevin and sex tape partner Montia Sabbag, and most if not all of them knew her, but Kevin knew none of them. We're told Sabbag and her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, are scheduled to meet with investigators, but not before next Wednesday. You would think they'd want to meet her earlier, but that's not the case. Our sources say investigators want to analyze all the information they get from the warrants before sitting with Sabbag, because they will help them hone in on the questions they want to ask her. Sabbag insisted at her news conference she was not part of the extortion plot.
8:30 AM PT -- Lebron James just responded to Donald Trump uninviting the Warriors to the White House. "U bum Stephen Curry already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" Donald Trump is on the attack against athletes who attack him ... and this time it's basketball. Trump is apparently outraged the Golden State Warriors are reluctant to go the The White House for the traditional meet-and-greet when a team wins a championship. Steph Curry said Friday his team would meet soon and discuss on whether they should go.
Coach Steve Kerr had previously said the same thing. Trump just dis-invited Steph ... in fact he's slamming the White House door shut on the entire team, saying, "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore the invitation is withdrawn." ESPN's Jemele Hill, who got disciplined for her Trump attack, just tweeted at Steph, "Hey Stephen Curry, welcome to the club bro." Trump, who's been compiling an enemy's list that rivals Richard Nixon's, went after the NFL Friday during a speech, telling owners to fire those "sons of bitches" who take a knee during the National Anthem.
Serena Williams posted another picture of baby Alexis Olympia Ohanian and this time around her eyes are wide open. However, what is striking in the photo is the fact that Williams is the one with her eyes closed this time around. In the photograph, both mom and daughter show off their muscles. While the tennis champion star is trying to catch some sleep and cuddling a teddy bear, baby Olympia is yawning and flexing her tiny biceps.
It is presumed that Williams’ fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, is the one who took the intimate photo. The picture has received beautiful comments such as the ones selected below: “This warms my heart. What beautiful photo.” “Olympia is already flexing her ...
On Tuesday (Sept. 19), Cardi B says she was put in a chokehold by a New York City cop but now, the New York Police Department is disputing the claims. According to a report from TMZ, NYPD Assistant Commissioner Peter Donald said a full investigation was conducted by the department but proof of the chokehold happening could not be found. Donald says commanders in each precinct around the area where the “Bodak Yellow” rapper says the incident occurred could not find any records or surveillance video that supported Cardi’s claims. The rapper had previously tweeted, “I can’t believe this cop put me on a choke hole [sic] just now shit is crazy these NY cops don’t know how to do they job FUCK 12.” When asked by a fan on Twitter if the cop was White,
Cardi confirmed he was. The Bronx native has refused to offer more details of the alleged incident, which has led the department to believe the chokehold never happened. The NYPD has asked Cardi B to come forward and talk. In music-related news, Cardi is preparing for the release of her debut album but recently revealed it may take a little longer for it to drop. “I wanted to drop next month,” she said in a recent interview, referring to her initial October release. “Every single time I think I got all the 10 songs I’m like, I’m buggin’. These ain’t it. It’s just like, damn I’m competing with myself. I’m competing with the goddamn No. 2 record [on the Billboard Hot 100] and stuff.” Neither Cardi B or her team has yet to respond to the latest NYPD claims.
The woman who pointed a gun at the cashier at the Kardashian's DASH store has been arrested. Cops were able to use surveillance video to track down the woman seen here brandishing a knife. She's 35-year-old Maria Medrano. Cops went to her home Thursday night, executed a search warrant and found 2 airsoft guns ... similar to the one
used by the perp in the first assault. TMZ broke the story, the person who entered the store knocked down merch, left, and then came back wielding a knife, and that's when she was caught on surveillance video. Medrano's been booked for assault and criminal threats. She's being held on $50,000 bail.
Some of the most famous photos of Tupac Shakur have been stolen and slapped on shirts at a couple popular retail stores, and the photog wants justice ... according to a new lawsuit. Chi Modu, known for his portraits of hip-hop artists, claims a merchandising company used his Pac pics without permission to produce a bunch of apparel. According to the docs ...
the company then sold the shirts to Urban Outfitters and Macy's, which sold them to the public ... also allegedly without Modu's consent. Modu admits he had an agreement with the merchandising company to use his Tupac photos at one time,
but it expired in July 2016 ... and he says the dirty business came afterward. The photog wants all the stores' profits from the shirts, along with damages. We reached out to Urban and Macy's ... no word back so far.
Scoring backstage passes for Chance the Rapper was the worst VIP experience ever ... according to a fan who's suing for a header she took during the Chi-town concert. The woman says she had a wristband for meet and greet access to Chance during his 2016 Magnificent Coloring Day Festival. Sweet score, right? Wrong ... according
to the fan who says she was on her way backstage when she tripped over a chain that was left unsecured, and on the floor of a tunnel. She says she was slammed to the ground and was injured, though she's not specific about her boo-boos. In the suit, she says the concert promoter, AEG Live, had a duty to keep the grounds safe ... but failed miserably. She's suing the music giant for damages. Chance is not a defendant in the case.
Kevin Hart and his pregnant wife, Eniko, are putting his sex tape/extortion case on a side burner for at least one day because they're still putting on a super expensive baby shower amid the scandal. According to docs, obtained by JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 ATLANTA, Kevin and Eniko are dropping serious cash for a 'Lion King' themed shower on Oct. 1 at the Calamigos Beach Club in Malibu. The venue will be decked out in leopard print and safari animals pics -- and a Hart family photo "with a silhouette of pregnant Eniko leading the way."
They're also having an "Experience Bar" where guests can sample exotic foods and dress up like tribal warriors -- and a game show similar to "The Price Is Right" where guests can win prizes. All set to 'Lion King' music, of course. It don't come cheap -- according to the docs, the whole shebang is costing them $117,855. But that includes $1,500 for a chimp in a diaper ... so it's a steal. We're thinking Kevin's gift budget might go up slightly though.
U.S. Police release disturbing CCTV footage of the moment Drake's friend was murdered Yahoo Celebrity UK Stephanie Soteriou,Yahoo Celebrity UK 7 hours ago Reactions Sign in to like Reblog on Tumblr Share Tweet Email Toronto police have made the decision to release shocking CCTV footage that shows the moment a close friend of rapper Drake was murdered in an ambush. Anthony Soares was shot dead by two masked gunmen as he waited to be buzzed into an apartment building just before 3am on September 14. The men opened fire through a glass door at close range,
with Soares having nowhere to run as the men gunned him down before fleeing into a waiting getaway car. Security cameras caught the entire attack, as well as catching the four-door, white Ford Fusion car that allowed the attackers to escape as 33-year-old Soares died on the ground. Authorities have made the decision to release the disturbing footage in a bid to identify the killers, with Homicide Detective Sergeant Gary Giroux explaining: “In essence, the deceased was trapped between the inner foyer area and the offenders, who were on the opposite side of the glass.” Following his brutal murder, Drake took to Instagram to pay tribute to his friend.
Sharing a photo of Soares, who was father to a young daughter, the star wrote: “RIP to one of our family members… Our brother… I still can’t even believe this morning was real. “It was a honour to have shared years together and I will always keep your memory alive.” Detective Sergeant Giroux urged Drake to use his fame to try and find the culprits, saying: “Many of the family members have met Drake and I certainly would encourage him, through his tweets, to encourage anybody within the community to come forward with regards to any information they may have that might assist in solving his friend’s murder.” Anyone with information on Anthony Soares’ murder is asked to contact Toronto police on 416-808-7400,

The woman at the center of the Kevin Hart sex-extortion scandal has officially identified herself and is ready to set the record straight. On Tuesday, high-powered lawyer Lisa Bloom tweeted that she is now representing “the woman at the center of the Kevin Hart scandal,” identifying her as Montia Sabbag. Sabbag, whom Bloom writes is an “actress and model,” will address the brewing scandal during a press conference Wednesday morning,
the lawyer tweeted. According to Bloom, Sabbag “was briefly involved with Kevin Hart a month ago. Since that time, she has been the subject of false, vicious attacks on her character.” At the press conference, Bloom says she and Sabbag “will speak out … about the true facts of this situation, and will announce their next legal move.”
Bravo’s Georgia peaches are back -- and juicier than ever! The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns for its landmark 10th season this November, with two familiar faces: NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak Biermann. The original Housewives are back and -- surprise -- NeNe is full-time! Previous reports stated the 49-year-old reality star would only recur on the new season. From the looks of the trailer, NeNe and Kim come to play -- and so did the rest of the returning cast: Kenya Moore, Sheree Whitfield, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams. Kim looks to be involved in a lot of the drama. She seemingly bonds with Porsha, who asks her, “You my new Frack?” It’s a reference to Phaedra Parks (the “Frack” to Porsha’s “Frick”), who is not returning to the series after the shocking season nine reunion that left most of the cast not speaking to her.
The rest of the group doesn’t seem so interested in Porsha, though. NeNe even dubs her “a bad friend.” Kim also appears to have concerns for NeNe and how much she’s drinking -- and has a blowout fight with Kenya, bigger than their Chateau Sheree showdown in last season’s finale. At one point, Kenya makes a call to 911 to file a report, but it’s unclear if it’s about Kim. The season will document Kenya’s unexpected wedding and her co-stars’ less-than-supportive reactions to the news. It looks like Kenya is keeping her husband away from the cameras -- and the women. Her closest friend in the group, Cynthia, hasn’t even met him!
“Let’s play a game,” cast friend Marlo Hampton tells the group. “How many believe that Kenya’s really married?” Cynthia Bailey’s budding -- and apparently controversial -- romance will also be chronicled, but her ex, Peter Thomas, isn’t totally out of the picture. In fact, he tells the other ladies’ husbands, “Cynthia and I will get back together.” Sheree Whitfield also has a new love interest -- an incarcerated man! NeNe calls the unidentified gentleman “a con artist.”The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s new season premieres Sunday, Nov. 5, at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
Family and friends of Kenneka Jenkins, a teenager found dead last week in the freezer of a Chicago-area hotel, want the FBI to investigate after local police said they don’t suspect foul play. Jenkins, 19, went missing Sept. 8. Her body was found two days later in a walk-in freezer at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont. Rosemont police said they are investigating a death, not a homicide. About 100 people, led by Jenkins’ mother, Teresa Martin, gathered Saturday in Douglas Park for a memorial ceremony. After that, 30 attendees marched to the FBI’s Chicago field office seeking to get the bureau to investigate, according to the Chicago Tribune. Martin said she believes local police are covering up the motive behind her daughter’s death. Surveillance video released on Friday by Rosemont police has been altered, she said.
“It doesn’t make sense ? and I’m not a professional, but the FBI from what I heard ? they are professionals,” Martin told WGN-TV. No one from the FBI met with the protesters on Saturday, and they left after speaking with the media. Rosemont police said the video shows a seemingly intoxicated teen stumbling into the hotel kitchen area. No footage of Jenkins walking into the freezer has been released, according to “Inside Edition.” An attorney for the family released this statement: “Despite request for all evidence, we have only been provided snippets of video, none of which shows Kenneka Jenkins walking into a freezer. The family has not been provided any video or other evidence of Kenneka Jenkins walking into a freezer.” Meanwhile, the medical examiner’s office said it won’t rule on the cause of death until it gets toxicology results, according to CNN. Jenkins’ loved ones,
however, said authorities are dragging their feet. Community leader Mark Carter is protesting the police handling of the investigation by organizing a monthlong boycott of Rosemont businesses. “If we can’t get the answers that we want, then we must cause Rosemont an economic hardship,” Carter told WGN-TV. “They must feel this. No cover up. You will not cover up the death of our children. This has gone on for far too long.” This article originally appeared on HuffPost.
Entertainment Amid Cheating Claims, Kevin Hart's Ex Claims He Was With Current Wife While Still Married to Her Inside Edition Inside Edition 18 hours ago Reactions Sign in to like Reblog on Tumblr Share Tweet Email As Kevin Hart’s personal life is thrown into the spotlight amid cheating allegations, his ex-wife has some explosive claims of her own as she reveals to Inside Edition what it was like to be the first Mrs. Hart. Torrei Hart, 39, was the comedian’s college sweetheart. The pair was married in 2003. “When I met him, he was selling sneakers,” she told Inside Edition. “He starts to get fame and I’m feeling, okay, well, a little left behind. We grew apart.” She and Hart divorced in 2011 and he went on to marry his second wife, Eniko Parrish, in 2016. But Torrei Hart is speculating that her ex-husband’s past relationships overlapped, saying “lies and infidelity” led to the demise of their marriage. In a recent comedy special, Hart has reportedly admitted to cheating on Torrei. “Yes, people, I cheated. Am I ashamed of it? No, no I’m not,” he said during Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain. “Do I wish I could take it back? No, no I don’t.” Torrei said the jokes were made at her expense. “I have an ex-husband who has repeatedly used me in his stand-up routine,” she said. “For years, I had to endure that.” The uproar started when Eniko Hart shared a photo from her wedding, writing that she and Hart had marked eight years together and one year married. "Forever to go!" she wrote. But Kevin and Torrei divorced six years ago. Eniko Hart claimed on Instagram that the couple was separated and living in separate homes when she began dating Hart and that she was "never a secret." But Torrei disputed that, telling Inside Edition: "I was like, what 'never a secret?' She said we were separated, not living together. That's a lie. We were very much not separated." When asked whether she thought her ex-husband was capable of cheating again,
Torrei Hart looked to her own experience with him as the telling indicator. “I can’t say yes, I can’t say no,” she said. “All I can say is if it happened to me, it could happen to anyone.” Now Hart has come under fire for allegedly being unfaithful to Eniko, who is seven months pregnant. The funnyman took to Instagram to admit he had been caught on camera with another woman. “I made a bad error in judgement and put myself in an environment where only bad things can happen and they did,” he said. “In doing that, I know that I am going to hurt the people closest to me, who I've talked to and apologized to, being my wife and my kids.” The footage triggered a multimillion-dollar extortion plot, he said. According to published reports, a man thought to be Hart was captured on camera getting "cozy" with an unidentified woman in a club, and later in a bedroom.
The woman and multiple accomplices reportedly demanded $10 million in exchange for the promise that the "sexually provocative" video would not be released. “It’s a s***ty moment. It’s a s***ty moment when you know you are wrong and there’s no excuses for your wrong behavior,” Hart said. “At the end of the day, man, I just simply got to do better. But I’m also not going to allow a person to have financial gain off of my mistakes. In this particular situation that was what was attempted. I said I’d rather fess up to my mistakes.” The LAPD and FBI are investigating the alleged extortion plot.
What else is there to say about R. Kelly that hasn't already been said before? The socially inept, but legendary, singer-songwriter-producer has a storied history of questionable sexual choices, which recently came to a head this summer when BuzzFeed published a bombshell story about an alleged "sex cult" being orchestrated by Kelly. Despite an incredible amount of research in the initial story—and the follow-ups that came after—Kelly vehemently denies any wrongdoing. That hasn't stopped his alleged victims from speaking out. Jerhonda Pace is the latest who has stepped up to tell her side of the story. In an interview with day-time talk show
The Real, Pace shared grim details about what it was like to live under Kelly's thumb. She began by claiming there was a female trainer who taught her and other young women how to "please" Kelly. Pace, who was 16 at the time, said she had previously lost her virginity to Kelly when she was introduced to this mystery trainer. "The trainer, it’s a woman—she trains you to please him sexually," Pace said. "She told me how to please him, and she also taught me what I liked." Pace further detailed their first encounter: "I got invited to his tour bus. I went out to his tour bus and you have him naked and her naked, and I’m looking like, ‘OK, what is this?' Because Rob[ert Kelly] is the one who took my virginity."
Pace says Kelly told her not to worry, saying, "She’s going to teach you everything you need to know." When asked how she felt when Kelly would threaten her with a spanking, Pace revealed that it was much more than a sexual thing. "It's very frightening," Pace said, becoming emotional. "He would slap you in your face. He would physically harm you, and he would put you in a room, and he would lock you in a room for days." During another part of the conversation, Pace told The Real hosts how she would up escaping Kelly's clutches. According to Pace, Kelly was preparing for a party when she came up with a plot. "I told him my uncle lived a few doors down and I wanted to go to my uncle's house to grab some shoes," Pace said. "And he was like, 'OK, well when you get there, you get the shoes and you come right back.' And at that moment, when I knew I got out the house, I was like, 'I'm not going back. I refuse.' I wasn't going back."
Taylor's rep tells JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 ATLANTA, "This is a ridiculous claim and nothing more than a money grab. The law is simple and clear. They do not have a case."Taylor Swift's massive hit "Shake it Off" was not really hers ... so claim 2 accomplished songwriters who wrote a hit song with similar lyrics 16 years ago ... at least that's what they're saying in a new lawsuit. Sean Hall and Nathan Butler say they wrote a song entitled "Playas Gon' Play" back in 2001, and it Hit #81 on Billboard Hot 100.
It was recorded by a big girl group, 3LW. Among the lyrics ... "Playas, they gonna play and haters, they gonna hate." Not hard to figure out the rest. Hall and Butler say 20% of "Shake it Off" is their song. BTW, Butler has worked with the Backstreet Boys, Christina Milian, Aaron Carter and Victoria Beckham. Hall has worked with Justin Bieber, Lionel Richie, Pink and Maroon 5. Butler is being repped by Gerard Fox Law and Julian Everly Shervington Wright. They want a ton of money.
