Sean Kingston just picked up another L ... and it wasn't cheap. The rapper's been ordered to pay $301,500 to NYC jeweler Aqua Master who sued him over 9 pieces of
jewelry but was never paid. The items included 2 diamond necklaces, a few gold chains, a ring and 2 watches. Making matters worse, Aqua says Sean flaunted the pieces on his IG. Aqua sued Sean back in 2016,
but the rapper never responded to the lawsuit, so the judge issued a default judgment. Aqua says
Sean made a halfhearted attempt to pay ...
sending 2 checks. But they later bounced. Sean's got issues with jewelers over the years.
He was sued in Florida and had already been ordered to pay another jeweler in 2015.
Nicki Minaj's brother, Jelani Maraj, faces up to life in prison for the rape of his stepdaughter but the 39-year-old's lawyer wants the conviction tossed.
According to a report from Page Six, Maraj's sentencing on Tuesday (Feb. 21) was put off for another month after his attorney filed a petition. A Nassau County Supreme Court Judge has yet to rule on the motion to vacate
the guilty verdict. Minaj's brother was found guilty of predatory sexual assault and acting in a manner injurious to a child on Nov. 9, 2017. The child, who was 11 years old at the time, is the daughter of Maraj's then-wife, Jacqueline Robinson. Police say they found Maraj's semen on the girl's pajamas, but according to the defense, the girl and her mother planted the evidence. Maraj's lawyers also argued that the mother and daughter tried to extort Maraj and Minaj for $25 million and claimed that allegations
such as Maraj coaching the girl on how to make anal sex less painful while he raped her were also made up. Reports claimed Minaj was going to testify on behalf of her brother but the rapper never took the stand. It was later reported that Minaj had not had a close relationship with Maraj since he was first charged with rape. In related news, Nicki has taken a break from social media to focus on her new album. The "No Frauds" rapper is reportedly working on the follow-up to her 2014 project, The Pinkprint.
Trey Songz is being accused of striking a woman he was partying with during NBA All-Star weekend ... JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us the woman filed a police report claiming Trey hit her in the face Saturday night while they were attending a Hollywood Hills party. She claims Trey got upset because she was talking to another man,
and hit her during an argument. We're told she left the party on her own to go to a hospital, and talked to police soon afterward. We're told her injuries were minor. The case will be reviewed by the L.A. City Attorney to determine
if Songz will be charged. We've reached out to his reps ... so far, no word back. The singer was sued in December for allegedly smacking a phone out of a woman's hand in a Philly strip club.
Young Dolph dodged another bullet by being the only in his crew to walk away from a Hollywood gun bust without handcuffs on his wrists ... JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us Dolph was the only one out of 4 guys to be released during a Sunday traffic stop. We're told the 3 guys he was rolling with were all arrested for possession of a firearm. Dolph was not strapped and, therefore, got off scot-free. We're told Dolph was a passenger in the vehicle,
and was released on the spot while his pals got hauled off to jail. Hopefully he grabbed the keys. The traffic stop went down in Hollywood ... not too far from where Dolph was shot in the ass late last year. Much better outcome this time around.
Considering he also took fire in North Carolina last year, you'd understand why Dolph's friends might be armed. We reached out to his camp ... no word back.

You can say what you want about Birdman, but there's no denying he built a dynasty in 1990s after launching Cash Money Records. A dynasty that, despite its issues,
is still pumping out hits to this day. The Cash Money CEO breaks down how it all came together in his new documentary, Before Anythang: The Cash Money Story, via Apple Music, which dropped Friday (Feb. 16). With Baby as the narrator, the film takes us back to the days before the bling, chronicling his entire life,
helped out by interviews from those who are close to the label founder. We hear intimate stories about his birth, family upbringing and factors that made him the man he is today. It also features throwback footage of CMR during its heyday, with appearances from Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Turk, B.G., Mannie Fresh and more.
“Being young, we just did what we felt we wanted to do,” he says in an early scene. “Couldn’t give, so we took. Uptown, everybody knows each other, everybody knows what everybody’s about. I love my neighborhood. I’ll never leave it.
But I’ma bring you back. Show you the life, before we had anything.” The project is executive produced by Baby and Ronald “Slim” Williams and co-executive producer Vernon Brown.
It looks like Birdman and Toni Braxton might have made it official and could be engaged to be married. The latest development in the rumored
relationship comes from the R&B singer herself, who revealed the news in the new trailer for season six of Braxton Family Values. In the promotional clip, Toni says she has an announcement to make before telling her sisters she engaged and showing off a huge canary-yellow diamond solitaire engagement ring. However,
Toni never confirms who she is engaged to in the brief clip. The Cash Money CEO and the R&B singer first sparked dating rumors back in 2016, when they appeared together at a performance at Atlanta's Fox Theater. Last year, Baby rushed to be by Toni's side when she was hospitalized for lupus. At the time, Toni's mom, Evelyn, seemed excited about the prospect of the two being together. "I think he is a nice man,"
Evelyn said. "I don’t care what others say about him. He is a nice man. He is full of respect." She added, "I met him years ago. Toni been knowing him... 15 years ago something like that. Ever since I’ve been knowing that man, he’s been phenomenal.
So let me say, I hope so." Last October, rumors began to circulate that the entertainers had already tied the knot, but they ended up shooting that speculation down.
Janet Jackson clearly believes in sticking to the mom-damentals of parenting -- which include pushing your own baby's stroller ... and
carrying your little one around yourself. Janet was spotted pushing around her 1-year-old son, Eissa, in London Monday as she joined some friends for lunch -- and even in the rain and all ... she was roughin' it. We assume the singer has
nannies on hand to help with some of the child care, especially since she's back to touring after giving birth last year, and has been pretty busy. Still ... Janet appears to be quite hands-on as a mother, 'cause baby Eissa has accompanied
her to lots of places lately. And Janet's usually the one carrying the kid around ... like here, here and here. One thing he definitely can't ask in the future ... what did you ever do for me, ma?
Beyonce showed Blue Ivy how it's done in the selfie department during the NBA All-Star Game, but to be honest doesn't look like the kid needs any advice.
Mother and daughter sat courtside Sunday evening at Staples Center along with grandma Tina Knowles, and her hubby, Richard Lawson. Looks like Jay-Z stayed home with the twins. Even without Jay, there was no shortage of celebs -- like Dave Chappelle,
Common, Cardi B, Jack Nicholson and many more ... packed the arena. As for Blue, who's only 6, it's not her first rodeo. The kid had front row seats to last year's All-Star Game in New Orleans. Stole the show there, too. Like mother, like daughter.
Kanye West was hangin' with Kendall Jenner's ex A$AP Rocky Saturday before performing for NBA All-Star Weekend. Kanye and A$AP were leaving his
Calabasas studio Saturday afternoon before the concert. Kanye performed with Kid Cudi Saturday night at an Adidas event in Downtown Los Angeles. Kanye first introduced Cudi, and then with Cudi's help, performed "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1"
which is off his 2016 album, "The Life of Pablo." It marks Kanye's first live performance in nearly a year.Kanye's been working on a new album for months. He's gone on a retreat several times in Wyoming by himself to write songs.
As for why he was in the studio with A$AP, we're guessing they might be doing a collab for his new album.
Shots were fired at a Nipsey Hussle album release party Saturday night in L.A., and someone got hit. Someone started shooting in the parking lot outside
World on Wheels, a roller skating rink in Venice. One person was shot in the thigh. Cops swarmed the area on the ground and in the air. The shooter got away and police were left high and dry after the victim refused to cooperate.
The shooting went down at around 11:30 PM. We're told people inside the roller rink freaked out ... many fearing it was a repeat of what happened Friday in Florida. Police didn't see Nipsey after the shooting.
It's unclear if he had already left. The party was unrelated to NBA All-Star weekend festivities. It was a celebration of Nipsey's album, "Victory Lap."
Rich the Kid's performance at a Hollywood nightclub as part of NBA All-Star Weekend was interrupted in a big way after a man was seen
brandishing a gun in the parking lot. Cops descended on Lure nightclub after getting the 911 call, and the video is gripping and dramatic. You see police with guns drawn ordering people out of their cars.
People inside the club ran for cover into the streets as an army of cops searched for the suspect. The parking lot is also used for the ArcLight theatre, which was showing "Black Panther." Unclear if the movie was interrupted. No suspect was found.
We've been getting reports that 2 Chainz has a new album on the way for a few months, and now the Atlanta rapper confirms the news by revealing
the name of his new project. But he didn't do it any old way. He decided to go all out and display the title on the side of a blimp that took off from the San Bernardino, Calif., airport on Thursday (Feb. 15). The upcoming release will be titled Rap or Go to the League. Tit expounded on the title in an Instagram post, saying it is a play on the old adage in the Black community that there are limited options out, similarly touched on by
The Notorious B.I.G on the track "Juicy": "Either you selling crack rock, or you got a wicked jump shot." The IG video shows the rapper's reaction to seeing the blimp for the first time. "We were one of the few people who kind of started the wave back in the Atlanta scene as far as billboards for hip-hop period, as far as it being a marketing tool," he says. "What other better marketing tool than a floating billboard."
It sounds like we will get a more serious side of the rapper on the new project."With the height of racial tensions across America I felt I should do my part in explaining some of the brain washing formulas used in my community, this album not only touches on those who did succeed thru entertainment but those who didn't," he captioned the video. "Welcome to Rap or Go TO THE LEAGUE ! My 5th solo studio album
and project that shows continued growth, success, and motivation which is playing a role in the shift of the trap paradigm ?????? #ROGTTL." Dos Links later formally announced the title during a performance at Def Jam's 2018 NBA All Star Weekend party on Friday (Feb. 16). Confirmation of the new album is coming fresh off the heels of Titty Boi blessing the masses with the new EP Rap or Go to the League will be 2 Chainz's follow-up album to Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, which dropped last July.
Waka Flocka Flame saved a fan from becoming roadkill by pulling her from oncoming traffic as she tried to snap a selfie with the rapper.
Waka Flocka was down in New Orleans this week for Mardi Gras when fans mobbed him on the way down to Bourbon Street.
A female fan, wearing a black jacket, attempts to snap a pic with the rapper, but in a split second, a cab comes flying out of nowhere. Waka Flocka, in yellow, pulls her from the road as onlookers shriek in fear. Craziest of all, it appears
the fan barely lifted her head from her phone to see if she got the photo. The cab did have a green light, so close call for sure!
After months of delivering blessings to others following Hurricane Harvey, Trae Tha Truth is getting a blessing of his own. On Thursday (Feb. 15), the Houston rapper revealed he has a daughter on the way.
Trae broke the news on Instagram, writing, "Baby Alert!! I've Just Been Notified..ISSA GIRL ????????...Lord Help Me...#AintNoBoyfriend #ImmaCryInTheCar #SheMustNotKnowWhoHerDaddyIs #JesusGrabTheWheel #KingTruthHavinADaughter #iishJustGotReal ????????????????????." While the sex of the child was just revealed,
Trae had previously told fans earlier this month that a baby was on the way. "!!!! Always Been Blessed To Bless Others... Well It Seems God Had A Blessing Of His Own For Me.... A New Lifeline To Add To My Legacy!!???????????????? #StayTuned #KingTruth," he posted on Feb. 6 along with a picture of the sonogram. Trae's charitable acts haven't only been limited to hurricane relief. Over the holidays, the rapper partnered with
Cigna to give Houston families in need a $71,000 shopping spree. "'Bless Those In Need' $71,000 Plus Shopping Spree ... We Are One!!! #KingTruth @reliefgang @cignatogether @jcpenney @djmrrogers Those Smiles Were Priceless," he wrote on IG. The rapper also recently teamed up with Motocross
star Josh Hansen to treat 60 families to a Supercross event. Hansen praised Trae for the work he's been doing, telling Fox Sports, “I saw what Trae was doing, and I told him, 'hey I want to be a part [of this] however I can.'"
One of Cardi B's reps has been telling people she's 3 to 4 months pregnant, but if she is, it's news to her fiance. We got Offset Friday
afternoon heading into Peter Marco Jewelers on Rodeo Drive, and he was clear as a bell ...
Cardi, he says, is not with child. The 26-year-old Migos member already has 3 bambinos -- 2, 2 and 8 -- and he says
no one's joining the brood anytime soon. Offset and Cardi are both in L.A. for NBA All-Star Weekend, where they're set to perform together.
Omar Epps improvised an action scene with a much older actress, and ended up sending her to the hospital ... according to a new suit filed by the actress.
Donzaleigh Abernathy claims she was filming a scene with Epps in May 2016 for the USA show "Shooter" where his character was supposed to murder her character, when he "completely deviated from the script" and "threw his left forearm with full force at [her] right arm," and broke it. Abernathy says she was 59 at the time,
and claims a much younger and stronger Epps was negligent and reckless in his handling of her during the scene. According to the docs ... along with breaking her arm, he also dropped her hard on the floor and injured her back. She claims production was stopped and she was rushed to the hospital. Abernathy is suing Epps,
along with Paramount Pictures, for negligence and assault and battery. She's asking for damages for her pain and suffering and wants her medical costs -- present and future -- covered.
A Brooklyn man who spent 18 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit wants a judge to throw out a $40,000 bill for child support he was unable to pay while locked up. Sundhe Moses, 42, was cleared in January of the 1995 drive-by shooting of 4-year-old Shamone Johnson. He was one of nearly a dozen people whose cases were overturned due to the questionable police tactics of now-retired NYPD Detective Louis Scarcella.
Last month, Moses filed papers in Brooklyn Family Court asking a judge to modify or erase his hefty child support bill because he was unable to earn an income through no fault of his own. “The reason that my arrears are the amount they are is because it accrued over a period of 18 1/2 years. During that time, I was incarcerated for a crime I did not commit and therefore was unable to pay,” Moses said in court documents. His ordeal highlights the unique obstacles the wrongfully convicted face upon reentering society. Moses is so broke he can’t afford a lawyer — and family court does not assign parents an attorney until they’re on the brink of going to jail for failure to pay child support. Yet Moses’ bank account was frozen last week due to the unpaid child support. He says his wages from the youth services group Good Shepherd are garnished — $160 of his $380 pay — and he now uses check-cashing businesses. “Many states treat incarceration as voluntary unemployment — and child support continues to
accrue while a convicted person is utterly incapable of earning a living,” said attorney Ron Kuby, who represents Moses in his criminal case. “It adds a crushing and utterly unfair burden to someone trying to get back on their feet. When the person is wrongfully convicted — it’s a ‘WTF!’ moment." At the time of the shooting that landed him behind bars, Moses was 19 and the father of an 8-month-old son, Shaquille. He was paroled in December 2013 for the drive-by at the Prospect Plaza Houses in Brownsville that also wounded four others. He spent the subsequent years fighting for his exoneration and reconnecting with his now-adult son, who is in the Army. Meanwhile, Moses was hit with a bill for a whopping $39,724.82, according to court documents. Nearly $10,000 of the total goes to public assistance and the rest to
Shaquille’s mother, he said. After more than four years of freedom, Moses has only been able to pay $7,247. "When a conviction is vacated in criminal court everything that happened reverses and you start over. I'm asking for family court to do the same thing and put me in the same position where I wouldn't owe anything," Moses told the Daily News. Efforts to reach Shaquille and his mom, Kawana Harper, were unsuccessful. Moses said he has only seen Harper in court since his release. “My son is grown and I want us to get along. When he was growing up he of course didn't know all of this was going on, but now he's aware and doesn't think it’s fair,” Moses said. City Councilwoman Inez Barron introduced a bill last month seeking social services for the family of the wrongfully convicted, more
than 10% of 110 exonerees nationwide as of October were from the state. Moses is expected to sue over his 18 years behind bars. But he must await a decision from prosecutors on whether they will retry his case before suing. The process of negotiating a settlement with the city can last years. Since 2014, more than 25 men and a woman were exonerated either by the Brooklyn district attorney’s Conviction Review
Unit or a judge. Nearly a dozen of those cases of wrongful convictions involved Scarcella. Cynthia Godsoe, an associate professor of law at Brooklyn Law School, noted Moses’ predicament could become more common as district attorneys throughout the city and state review questionable convictions.
“This is a major barrier for someone who is getting released from prison, especially someone who was found to be wrongfully convicted,” Godsoe said. Moses will be back in family court next month. “I don't know anyone in my situation and I don't know how this will go,” he said. Godsoe knew of little precedent for the judge to forgive the funds Moses owes to the mother of his child and the state. “There needs to be legislation to make child support more realistic, maybe a clause added for the wrongfully convicted. Child support is supposed to be in the best interest of child," Godsoe said. “It seems like the right thing to do ... to forgive this.”
Washington, DC — Diamond Rust, a 20-year-old woman from Southeast Washington, DC, was slammed on the ground and brutally arrested by a Metro transit police for not paying to get on a bus. All that happened right in front of her two children.
On Tuesday, Rust, together with her one-year-old son and two-year-old daughter, boarded a bus at Alabama Avenue in Southeast D.C. She reportedly walked past the fare box without paying and sat down. After a while, an undercover police approached her and demanded her to get off the bus. “I’m pacing back and forth like ‘can you hurry up?’ He said he felt threatened with me pacing back and forth,” Rust explained.
She admitted that she didn’t stop pacing and just kept walking. Police also claimed that she kept putting her hands in her pocket and ignoring the police’s commands. “He said I was resisting. He pushed me to the fence,” Rust recalled of the horrifying moment. According to the police report, Rust kept pulling away so the officer had to slam her to the ground to finish the arrest. She was with her two children at the time and they saw the violence.
“The girl lifted my face up and I seen her — my daughter like right there crying. That’s when I started crying,” Rust said. Rust suffers from a fractured knee, open wounds on the face, and four broken teeth. She was rushed to the hospital shortly after the arrest but she was more worried about how this would affect her children.
“My son he don’t even like looking at me now. My daughter keeps saying police did this to mommy.” Rust, a graduating student from Ballou STAY High School, has a DC One fare card which allows her to have a free bus ride. But she doesn’t have it with her on the day of the incident. A picture, however, shows her bag with cash and two smart trip cards.
When asked if she would have done anything differently, Rust told WUSA9, “No. because this is just the person I am.” Rust plans to file a complaint with Metro. Metro Transit Police haven’t further commented yet about the incident.
Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga cannot use their son's child therapist to make their custody case ... at least that's what the lawyer for the 8-year-old is demanding ... JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA has learned.
The lawyer the judge appointed to represent David Jr. has filed legal docs asking the judge to prohibit Jennifer or David from calling the therapist to the stand to testify about the boy's state of mind and how the custody war has affected him. We're told the reason the lawyer wants the protective order is so David Jr.
can feel comfortable opening up with his therapist about both parents, without fear they will learn what he said. Both sides, we're told, have been put on notice that David Jr.'s lawyer is asking the judge for the order. No decision has been made, but it's a good bet the judge will sign on.
Brace yourselves for some SERIOUS cuteness overload. Ciara and Russell Wilson posted these pics Thursday of 9-month-old bundle of joy, Sienna Princess.
The pics were taken by the star Seahawks QB (he's got great hands, ya know) and posted on their fan app, TraceMe. Sienna looks like, well, a princess ...
complete with Russell's trademark curly locks. She definitely steals the show, but ya gotta hand it to Ciara -- she's looking mighty flawless. Her son,
Future Zahir, looks dapper and seems to be enjoying the photo sesh. #FamilyGoals for damn sure.
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have separated, and all signs point to divorce. The couple issued a statement saying they are separating.
According to the statement, they made a mutual decision at the end of 2017 to split. The statement reads, "We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship." Jennifer was just at Amy Schumer's wedding Tuesday and Justin was not there. He was in New York over the
weekend when Jennifer was celebrating her 49th birthday in Malibu. The couple became engaged in 2012, 7 years after her split from Brad Pitt. She married Justin in 2015. JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA learned about their wedding at their Bel Air estate, which was super secret. Jennifer recently told Architectural
Digest about the difficulty of remodeling their Bel Air mansion as a couple, saying, "I figured out that immediately sayinig 'no!' to any suggestion is not the most collaborative move." They have no kids.
Lil Pump isn't taking his arrest Wednesday night seriously ... which is the biggest understatement of the week. We got the 17-year-old Thursday at 2:30 PM leaving Sylmar
Juvenile Court, and he was as hyped as ever, showing off his newly acquired jewelry ... an ankle monitor. He was also spittin' bars about popping Xanax and boasting about Gucci tats. ... Pump was arrested for firing a handgun into the door of his
San Fernando Valley residence. He had told cops intruders had fired from the outside in, but cops quickly realized it was the opposite -- that Pump was the shooter and there were no intruders. He was arrested and taken to a Juvenile detention center, because he's still a minor.
A Cardi B team member says she's pregnant -- 3 to 4 months along -- which would make her upcoming business deals and commitments tricky ... costing her big bucks. Sources close to the rapper tell JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA
... Cardi and her team expect to finish a new album before end of summer ... and the plan is to tie the release to a 2-month tour with Bruno Mars, which kicks off in September. When you do the math, you see the problem. If she's at the beginning of the second trimester, she'll give birth sometime in August. And there's more.
Cardi, who had a hugely successful Super Bowl commercial, has other commercial deals on the table. She also has offers to collab with other artists. On top of all that ... she's supposed to start filming a movie sometime next month, which could be problematic once she approaches her 5th month. And don't forget ... she's scheduled to perform at
Coachella in mid-April. If she's a no-show, that would be the second year in a row a huge act bailed because she was with child. As for how much money is on the line ... it varies from project to project, but as a point of reference -- Cardi gets around $100k a show and $60k for nightclub walk-throughs. Cardi says she's not pregnant, but time will certainly tell.
The two women, at first, were not sure why a police officer had approached their table at the Applebee’s in Independence, Mo. They had decided to eat at the restaurant on Friday after a day of shopping at the Independence mall, and their order of chicken wings and mozzarella sticks had just arrived.
The officer informed the women that the Applebee’s staff believed they had eaten at the restaurant the day before and had left without paying for their meals. The accusation seemed absurd to the two women, who began to insist that this was their first time dining at that Applebee’s. Moments later, after being “mocked, humiliated, and embarrassed,” they were kicked out of the restaurant because they were the same race as the people who allegedly committed the crime,
said Alexis Brison, one of the accused women, who posted a video of the incident on Facebook. When the Independence police officer first approached Brison and her friend’s table, they repeatedly explained to him that they had not previously visited the restaurant. The officer asked them, “Why are you yelling?” and “Put yourself in my shoes.” “Can we just pay for our food and leave, because we haven’t done anything?” one of the women asked. When one of the women appears to call someone for advice on what to do next, the officer asked the women why they were “getting worked up for nothing.”
“This is too much of an accusation to call it nothing,” one of the women responded. The woman then broke down crying, and the officer laughed, asking whether she was “really this emotional.” He then informed the women that the restaurant wanted them to pay for their food, leave and never return. “We deal with this all the time. Black people in America gotta deal with this all the time,” one of the women later tells him and the restaurant staff, according to the video. “This is what black people have to deal with.” By Tuesday, the video of the incident went viral, and was viewed an estimated 3.3 million times.
Applebee’s officials in a statement Monday apologized for the restaurant’s actions and said they had fired the manager, server and another employee involved. We do not tolerate racism, bigotry or harassment of any nature,” officials said. Applebee’s officials added that they were temporarily closing the Independence restaurant — about 10 miles east of Kansas City, Mo. — so that the staff could “regroup, reflect, learn and grow from this.” “We are reaching out to the guests involved to apologize directly. We know rebuilding trust with those affected by the incident will take time, and we look forward to finding resolution in the coming days,” officials said.
The Independence Police Department could not be immediately reached for comment. In her Facebook post, Brison wrote that “black people cannot continue to be treated this way,” especially during Black History Month. In 2016, Victoria’s Secret made headlines after a black woman was accused of stealing from an Alabama store. The store then kicked out all its black customers. Brison wrote that she later found out that the server who accused her and her friend of the crime remembered the suspects were two girls —
one who was skinny and one who wore makeup. “In 2018, is this really what we’re debased to? Our weight and whether or not we wore makeup. She could not recognize any facial features or any defining characteristics,” Brison wrote. She wrote: “This is a clear example of RACIAL PROFILING that should not be stood for. Just because we are black does not mean we are all criminals and I will not be treated as such.”
Nicki Minaj isn't missing, hiding or lying low because she's pregnant -- she's just been in beast mode working on making her next album a masterpiece. Sources close to Nicki tell us ... she
decided to ditch social media at the end of 2017 to fully focus on her music, which is why she's had no new posts since December 30. We're told she feels way more creative without the distractions of Instagram and Twitter.
Our sources say Minaj has been working night and day in the studio with major producers and rappers like Lil Wayne, Mack Maine and other Young Money acts ...
and she's going to continue to leave social media alone until the album's complete. Nicki's fans have expressed concern about her being MIA in 2018, which
culminated Monday with Wendy Williams launching a faux campaign on her show to help find her ... replete with a missing persons poster. But we're told all is well with Nicki -- she's happy, healthy, single and NOT pregnant, despite rumors.
As for the upcoming album ... our sources say some of the tracks are finished, and every song is going to be a hit. We're told it's expected to be released later this year ... and it's expected to be fire.
UPDATE!!!!!!!Nelly's attorney, Scott Rosenblum, tells us, "These allegations arose after Ms. Green amended her suit for money to include a reference to these claims. The fact that the police are investigating these claims is not new information and Nelly
welcomes a thorough investigation. Nelly is confident that once investigated, these claims will be determined to be disingenuous." He adds, "Nelly was accompanied by his girlfriend during this tour and she was at his side throughout. It is important that police investigate every allegation of this nature." Nelly is being criminally investigated for sexual assault in England ... JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA
has learned. The incident allegedly went down December 5 after Nelly's performance at Cliffs Pavilion in Essex. The accuser says she went to take a picture with Nelly and she says he placed his arm tightly behind her and asked if she could stay behind to talk to him. They went to his dressing room with her friends and she says he then asked her to come to a room next door. She claims once in the room he dropped his
pants and began masturbating in front of her. She also claims he put his hand on her top and tried pulling it off. She says he also tried kissing her as she tried to bolt from the room. The woman says Nelly put his right hand on the back of her head and his left hand on her shoulder, forced her head down, pushing his erect penis into her mouth.
She says she ran out of the room as he called her a c***. The woman says she didn't go to cops immediately because she didn't think she'd be believed. Essex police told cops they have begun a sexual assault investigation. The alleged incident occurred 2 months after another woman claimed Nelly raped her on his tour bus. He strongly denied it. We've reached out to Nelly's rep for comment ... so far no word back.
Fantasia Barrino's dealing with another family tragedy -- the death of her oldest nephew, Tyquan JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA has learned.
According to law enforcement sources ... the singer's 18-year-old nephew died of multiple gunshot wounds Tuesday morning following an argument at a Greensboro, North Carolina residential complex that spilled out into the street. Paramedics attempted life-saving measures on Ty, and he was transported to Moses Cone Hospital ...
but died shortly after. Cops have arrested a 21-year-old suspect, who's been charged with first degree murder. Barrino posted the sad news on her Instagram Tuesday, saying ... "Auntie is So Sorry Baby. RIP to my Oldest Nephew Please Pray for his Mother and my Brother & his Stepdad." Tyquan, who went by T.W., was the
son of Fantasia's musician brother, Ricco. Ricco tells JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA ... he's completely devastated, because he didn't get to see T.W. in the morning Tuesday like he usually does, and now he's gone. It's been a rough stretch for Fantasia's family ...
her brother Xavier has been in the hospital for months recovering from a critical motorcycle injury, as well.
Tamar Braxton's estranged husband is taking a very expensive L on a Rolls-Royce he once leased in Florida.
A Florida judge is ordering Vincent Herbert to fork over more than $65k after failing to make payments on a Rolls-Royce Wraith. According to docs, Vincent fell so far behind on the ride ... Manhattan Leasing Enterprises repo'd it.
They turned around and resold it, but since it was used, the company says it lost more than $62,000. Someone's gotta cover that, and the judge says that someone is Vincent, who never responded to Manhattan Leasing ...
so the judge entered a default judgment. The leasing co. is now trying to collect the cash in California, where Vincent lives. As Tamar might put it ... get in line.
Miley Cyrus has an obsessed fan who traveled cross-country -- without invitation -- to see her in person, and left some bizarre Facebook posts that forced cops to take him into custody ... JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA has learned.
The guy is from the Milwaukee area, and a couple of weeks ago he wrote several posts referencing taking a trip to see Miley. He claims he knows her address, how best to enter her home and says they'll "finally get together." There's also a creepy thank you to Miley for "getting rid of Liam" ...
and some rambling commentary about a "horrific act" he's going to pull off that will be on the news. The posts caught the attention of a concerned citizen, who alerted Milwaukee police. According to law enforcement sources ... Milwaukee PD contacted LAPD and the L.A. Sheriff's Department to give them a heads up, and good thing they
did. We're told the guy actually did make his way to Los Angeles -- cops located him on Monday, interviewed him and took him in for psychological evaluation. They can hold him for up to 72 hours. It's unclear if Miley was aware of the apparent danger. We've reached out to her legal team
Travis Scott's undergoing a metamorphosis, and we don't mean changing diapers -- turns out the arrival of Stormi Webster is having a major effect on Dad's music. Sources connected to the rapper tell JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA...
Travis has been on cloud nine since his first child's birth. Friends have noticed the normally stoic guy is now laughing a lot, and much calmer than usual. The best part, for fans at least, is we're told Travis' newfound peace is helping him hone his craft. He's been working on a new record, which his inner circle believes will be his best yet -- and our
sources say Stormi's getting props for it. Travis has been by Kylie Jenner's side before and after the birth, and we're told the new papa's become way more selective on which gigs he takes. As one source put it ... only serious cash will pry him away from his baby girl. Over the weekend, he was in his hometown of Missouri City,
Texas to get a key to the city -- and we're told he spent most of his free time on FaceTime with Kylie and Stormi. He's kinda like a doting sitcom dad now. Think Carl Winslow ... but with skills on the mic.
Kansas City Chiefs star running back Kareem Hunt was named in a police report by a 19-year-old woman who claims he shoved her during a heated hotel argument. But Hunt's friends told police the woman is lying -- claiming
SHE was the violent one who went berserk and called Kareem the N-word. Here's what EVERYBODY agrees on -- all the parties involved kicked things off Friday on a good note, tooling around Cleveland on a party bus and hitting at least 3 bars. Eventually they went back to the upscale hotel/apartment where 22-year-old Hunt has a residence -- the goal was to keep the party going. What ensued ...
two women were kicked out of Hunt's room and that's when the drama began. The Accuser's Side The accuser is a Kent State student who told police she was kicked out of the apartment because she didn't want to hook up with one of the men. The woman says she couldn't afford an Uber back to Kent State and
was too drunk to drive so she sat outside the apartment upset, trying to figure out how to get home. That's when a woman with Hunt's group came outside and told the accuser and her friend to go home. Kareem allegedly came out next and "shoved and pushed her" in an attempt to shoo her home. The accuser claims she suffered cuts and bruises to her knee, hand and chest. Hunt's Friends' Side But Hunt's friends paint a
different picture ... saying they refused to let the accuser and another female friend hang out when they learned the women were only 19 years old. One of Hunt's former college teammates told police the accuser went crazy after they were told to leave -- and "began calling him and Hunt the N-word and specifically she stated, 'F*ck you n*gger. You Ain't sh*t." The accuser allegedly punched one of Kareem's female friends in the face as she tried to deescalate the situation. Eventually cops were called to the scene and police took two reports. So far, no arrests have been made.
Mike Vick is officially out of the hole -- a judge has closed the book on his bankruptcy case after the ex-NFL star paid back more
than $17 million in debt. Vick filed for Chapter 11 back in 2008 after the infamous dog-fighting scandal -- when he lost his NFL salary and several lucrative endorsement deals. Vick owed approximately $17.6 MILLION to dozens
of creditors. But, Vick busted his ass to pay off his debts ever since he was reinstated with the Eagles in 2009. He reportedly made nearly $50 million in NFL salary in his 2nd stint in the league. According to the docs,
the outstanding debt was owed to Bank of America (related to one of his properties), BMW financial services, and his friendly neighborhood tax collector. Vick made his final
payment back in November -- and now a judge has officially closed the case, granting Vick's discharge and final decree. Congrats!
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested this weekend for domestic violence and possession of an assault weapon ... making this his 2nd arrest in a month. According to the Los Gatos Monte Sereno Police Department ...
Foster was arrested Sunday morning after cops responded to a welfare check and possible disturbance call. They say the 49ers star was arrested without incident. He was booked on three separate charges -- domestic violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon. No further details were
immediately available. Foster was also arrested in Alabama about a month ago to the day for marijuana possession. The 49ers responded by saying ...
"The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the report regarding Reuben Foster. We take matters of this nature seriously and are gathering all pertinent information."
Jeremy Sylvers -- best known as the kid actor who played Tyler in "Child's Play 3" -- is now a 34-year-old problem child for his mother ...
who's been busted for stealing her car. Law enforcement sources tell JAMZ RADIO STATION STATION ATLANTA ... Sylvers got into an argument with his mom at his L.A. home Friday because she wouldn't drive him somewhere in her car.
We're told he got physical, knocked her down and took her keys ... then drove off in her 2002 Honda CRV. Sylvers' mom called the cops, and we're told they returned to his home Saturday to follow up and he was there ... so they arrested him. Our sources say he's being booked on a felony charge of grand theft auto.
This isn't the Chucky movie star's first case of bad behavior either ... his ex-GF got a restraining order against him in 2014 after an alleged drunken rampage at a party. Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Cardi B isn't letting death threats from the Crips block her from a 6-figure payday over NBA All-Star Weekend -- it's all part of street life, as far as she's
concerned. Sources close to Cardi tell JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA ... she's sticking to her 3 scheduled appearances next week in L.A. -- including one with her fiance, Offset, and his Migos mates -- and she has no fear of gang retaliation. As we reported, the nightclubs hosting her events are beefing up, but
Cardi's viewing everything as business as usual. We're told she's reminding everyone on her team -- from record company execs on down -- she's from the streets, so nobody's stopping her bankroll. Our source says Cardi had no idea her use of the word "Flue" on IG would upset so many people, and that's why she
deleted it, but that's the ONLY thing she's changing. After all, we're told there's around $250k on the table for the weekend. In case you forgot, she makes money moves.
Beyonce's going long -- really long -- when it comes to her hair, but super short when it comes to her fashion. Any complaints?
Didn't think so. Bey and Jay-Z were in Miami Thursday night for some business and some pleasure -- and she showed off an extended new 'do -- down below her famous cakes -- while rocking a miniskirt for a dinner date.
She and Jay were leaving Mandolin restaurant with some friends ... one of whom seemed to be doing an homage to "Lemonade" with her ensemble. Earlier in the day they were at a JP Morgan event, also attended
by the likes of A-Rod, because, well ... money. They've all got tons of it. As for Bey's long and lovely goldilocks -- one word: Flawless.
Steve Harvey says the guy suing him for a gigantic commission for one of Harvey's charities is a fraud. Harvey just filed legal docs firing back at
Vincent Dimmock, who claimed in his lawsuit he struck a deal with Harvey back in April to raise $20 million, and in return he was promised 12.5% of everything he raked in. He says he got a bunch of A-listers on board and even a former President ... with pledges totaling $20 mil. Harvey is calling BS, saying Dimmock
originally reached out to him to promote an energy drink, and when that went nowhere Harvey says Dimmock pivoted and falsely told him he had a billionaire in his pocket who would invest big in Harvey's charity.
Steve says he actually flew to Austin to meet the billionaire, and it quickly became evident the guy didn't know Dimmock at all. What's more, Harvey says neither the billionaire nor anyone else connected to Dimmock invested a penny in any of his ventures. Harvey says the entire charade was part of a scheme for Dimmock to meet him.
The moron Logan Paul placed under citizens arrest for breaking into his house is already doing his time, after striking a plea deal ... JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA
has learned. The L.A. City Attorney's Office states ... the 20-year-old man appeared in court Thursday to enter a no contest plea for aggravated trespass. He got a 30 day jail sentence, 24 months probation
and must stay away from Logan's entire block. the YouTube star took matters into his own hands Tuesday night, arresting the guy for breaking into his San Fernando Valley home. He found the perp sitting in the living room ...
charging his phone. It's good news for Logan, who, let's be honest ... could use some.
Nas needs to open his fat wallet a lot more now to support his kid ... at least that's what Kelis is gunning for. Kelis just filed legal docs saying $8k a month ain't cuttin' it anymore in the child support department.
She says 8-year-old Knight has needs he didn't have 5 years ago when the order was put in place. She says Nas is doing way better now than he was when the judge ordered him to cough up the $8k monthly support,
so he's more than able to foot the bill for various expenses. She's not specific as to how much more she wants, but whatever she gets, she wants add-ons to the base ... namely, 50% of school-related costs, 50% of any child care Kelis needs,
and 50% of unreimbursed health care. The judge has yet to rule.
Nine years ago, a young man by the name of WAKA FLOCKA FLAME burst onto the hip-hop scene with the energetic track "O Let's Do It," which peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The Queens-born, Atlanta-raised musician's raps could've easily been mistaken for Southern trap, but paired with his rowdy tone and comedic (albeit violent) bars, Waka had a sound that was previously unheard.
Waka insists that he is in fact a trap music legend. "I’m the creator of 808s," the 31-year-old artist tells JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA
during a recent phone interview. To his credit, Chicago spitters like G Herbo admit the "Trap My Ass Off" rapper created a wave with his amped-up street tracks. He made his lifestyle sound fun, when in actuality it was a road with a dangerous path.
With nearly a decade-long discography under his belt, Waka Flocka is now a seasoned hip-hop artist with a résumé that extends way beyond the genre that made him a star.
"Bustin' At 'Em" and "No Hands," the triple-platinum banger with Wale and Roscoe Dash. While Waka's reuniting with the latter artist on his upcoming work, he insists that he's not retreading old ground. “No, we are not gonna do another ‘No Hands,’" he says.
he's held on tight to the fourth drive, and while there's still no set release date, he says his third studio album is set to drop soon.
XXL caught up with Waka Flocka Flame to go in-depth about Flockaveli II, why he's a big fan of 6ix9ine and how his time making EDM records has strengthened his raps.
XXL: What should fans expect from Flockaveli II other than what's already been released?
Waka Flocka Flame: I’m coming to fuckin' put my foot down. When Flockaveli II come out, muthafuckas gon be like, “Nah, that’s the Godfather.” Literally. That’s literally what people gon say. Flockaveli II is just attitude, man.
Do you have a specific song you’re excited for fans to hear?
Yeah, “Big Homie Flock."
It's just me. They gon be like “Hell yeah, this that Waka Flocka shit we want.” I always see people [and] they be like “When you gon put some Waka Flocka shit out, and not that EDM shit?” That’s what they always say.
I had to run the bag up.
Are there any features on Flockaveli II?
Only me and my artists. This ain’t a compilation CD.
Tell us about one of the new rap artists on your roster.
Bob Lennon—he’s like a mixture of Bob Marley and John Lennon. His music sounds like art, like culture. Never met an artist that could do a whole song in one take, every verse. He literally remembers the whole record in his head and he go record it and don’t listen to himself when he record it. Just the beat.
Which producers are you working with this time around?
I got a new producer, Luney G. I got a producer [named] Supah Mario. Lex Luger, Zaytoven, Southside, DY and Cicero.
Nice. It's dope that you’re still working with Lex Luger. What does that music sound like?
Like some gutta shit. This album, this is not radio music. I’m changing the style of radio music when I drop this.
What songs do you have with Lex on the album?
I got this record called “Flava,” “Trap Harder, Think Smarter”—that’s my shit. That’s my favorite Lex record. That shit’s hard!
The first Flockaveli made you a fan favorite. How does the Flockaveli II compare to the first one?
I’m not comparing them. I’m not trying to remake records. I’m not doing none of that. I want people to compare it. I wanna hear what people opinion is. I just know on Flockaveli II I’m snappin. Flockaveli II got a better delivery, better wordplay. It’s grimey.
The EDM lane has been treating you very well. What is the difference between EDM rap and hip-hop?
The concepts and delivery. [EDM likes] concept records, so I actually learned how to just stick to making concept records. EDM taught me how to rap.
How are the shows in comparison? EDM shows can get pretty crazy, but then again, your shows in general are, too.
Nothin' fuckin' with the hood clubs.
Which genre do you prefer?
Rap all day!
When it comes to new artists, who do you feel is taking over right now?
His energy—he's happy, havin fun, not giving a fuck what anybody say. And everything he know people hate the most, he’s just throwing it in their face and capitalizing off of it. To see a young teen do shit like that, that’s ill.
On a more personal note, what are your goals for 2018?
My goals for 2018 are to drop some dope music, launch at least two of my tech companies and watch my wife blossom as an artist. Watch her put an album out and just live and be happy. I feel like my wife’s gon' help bring R&B back. Real R&B. 2018—dope music, family smiling, companies launching. And I pray my water company takes flight.
You have a water company?
I partnered up with a guy that created the best water in the world. We have H12O6 in a bottle. Our water is called Vitale Life Structured Water.
That’s dope. And what about these tech companies you’re launching?
It’s kind of a little quiet, but they coming. I know one of them you are for sure finna use.
Which one is that?
It’s pertaining to merchandise, and things that people love buying that they can’t get their hands on at the time they see it.
You also have your weed strain.
I have my own weed farm, [too].
In Michigan, right?
Yes. I have Flockaveli OG, I have Thunder OG. We got gas. No numbers, man.
Most of your fans know that you’re vegan, and in past interviews you’ve said that you embarked on that journey because you had gained some weight. Why did you decide to make it a lifestyle?
I actually stopped eating vegan—I’m eating pescatarian [now]. Only for the fact that I was missing shrimp and lobster tails. I’ve been eating pescatarian [since the last] half of 2017. For the month of February I’m going on a strict diet, and I’m just going back clean.
I don’t wanna be called vegan; the word vegan scares me. So I kinda ran away from that name and that culture and what it stands for. When you say you’re vegan, you try to [act] like you’re better than people, and you’re chastising people. So I just stepped back from that, and now I became what you call a conscious eater. I said, “Let me create my own way of eating now.” And a conscious eater is a person that’s conscious of the things they put in they mouth, and to just to elaborate on that, it’s a person that, in detail, knows exactly what the product is made of that they put in their mouth. They know exactly what these products are doing. And I’m a conscious eater now.
Are Tammy and Charlie pescatarian, too?
Hell yeah, they love it. They on some “eat clean, we gotta know where it came from.
Who cooks more?
Oh, Tammy—she’s an ill chef. I never in my life tasted nothing that was nasty Tammy cooked.
What’s one of your favorite pescatarian meals?
Stuffed shrimp pepper. Tammy be making these stuffed shrimp pepper [whistles]. Them muthafuckas so good. Oh my God. Damn, I’m about to call her and tell her to make that.
Lonzo Ball is gonna be a daddy!! The L.A. Lakers superstar and his longtime girlfriend, Denise Garcia, are expecting a Baby Baller together ... JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA
has confirmed with multiple sources connected to the situation. Zo and Denise have been dating since their days at Chino Hills H.S. ... and we're told Denise's family is excited to meet the baby and already loves it unconditionally.
We're told Denise is 4 months pregnant. We're told the baby is very healthy.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott were not stumped when it came to choosing their baby's name, and we know that because of the blanket
purchased for them in late January. Sources tell us ... Kylie was showered with lavish gifts from Petit Tresor in Beverly Hills, and one item was a light grey baby alpaca blanket from a Kardashian sister. We're told the blanket was customized
to be XL-sized with "Stormi" embroidered on it in black, block lettering. As we reported ... Kylie's kiddo was born February 1. Our sources say the blanket's just one of the high-end gifts the family bought for Kylie/Stormi at the store.
Caitlyn Jenner apparently dropped around $3,000 on baby stuff. The items range from diaper bags at $250 a pop -- one for both Kylie and Travis --
to a $1,500 black and white stroller and a $1,000 white rocking sheep ... made from real sheepskin. Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Nothing can stop Remy Ma from canning Tamar Braxton's estranged husband, who's been cut from Remy's team for failing to be "super" ... JAMZ 101.5 HD 2 ATLANTA has learned.
Sources tell us Remy fired her recently-hired manager, Vincent Herbert, when she felt he was spending more time repairing his relationship with Tamar, than furthering Remy's career. We're told he came up short on promises of being a "super manager" for
Remy. We're told Remy's complaints include Vincent dropping the ball on basic manager duties like booking studio time, and scheduling performances. On the other hand, Remy wanted no part of Vincent's family drama --
Tamar filing for divorce and a baby mama allegation -- and our sources say that stuff was his focus. Short story long ... Vincent's out. Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Cardi B is dealing with a flood of threats from apparent gang members, thanks to a social media post that included a hardcore diss against the Crips.
On Monday, Cardi put up a shot of herself rocking a blue fur coat in Minneapolis. Her caption said, "I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin." It's that word "Flue" that has her in serious hot water -- it's a way to knock Crips favorite color, blue, without
using the actual word. Cardi's publicly stated she is a Blood, so the post -- which has more than a million likes -- pissed off the rival Crips, who not only left angry comments ... some flat-out threatened her. The rapper's scheduled to come to L.A. for NBA All-Star
festivities in about 10 days ... and her new enemies know it. One comment said, "@iamcardib this will not be accepted #DONTCOMETOLA." Another comment -- "Now why you go and do this f**k s**t Cardi. This is literally WestCoast Suicide ....
bitch betta get #neutral." For what it's worth -- within minutes of us reaching out to Cardi's people ... the "flue" caption was removed. Still no comment from Cardi though.
Meek Mill was blown away when he watched from prison as his beloved Eagles all danced to his song,
"Dreams and Nightmares," during the Super Bowl. Meek believes the song choice was a statement by the team that he was unjustly thrown in prison for a probation violation. He says, "I was encouraged injustice still matters to people," this according to his lawyer,
Joe Tacopina. The rapper says some members of the team have reached out to him and are fighting for his release. His song became an anthem
for the team throughout the playoffs as the team celebrated their victories in the locker room.
And, we're told, he got a huge kick when he saw Karl-Anthony Towns wearing a "Free Meek Mill" jersey on TV during the pregame warm-up. As for the championship ... "ecstatic."
Three Kardashian baby daddies are all taking a leap of faith ... that their baby mamas will give them proper custody and/or visitation without the benefit of a custody agreement. Sources connected to all three men tell JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA,
they never papered their financial and custodial arrangements. We're told Travis Scott and Kylie don't have anything in writing regarding custody or support of their newborn daughter. Same goes for Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian, although that may be a bit premature since she hasn't given birth. More interesting, perhaps,
is that we're told Scott Disick doesn't have a written custody agreement with Kourtney Kardashian. They have 3 kids and from what we hear, the only conflict involves Scott's sobriety. They have the option at any
time of trying to ink a custody arrangement or going to court for one if they can't do it on their own. As for Kanye and Kim ... no need for any agreement since they're hitched.
Birdman may have recently ran into some financial problems, but that didn't stop the Cash Money Records founder from placing an expensive bet on Sunday's (Feb. 4) Super Bowl matchup between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.
According to Philly rapper AR-Ab, he and Birdman made a $200,000 bet on the game and AR-Ab ended up winning after the Eagles beat the Patriots 41 to 33. It appears the original bet was set at $100,000 as the rapper wrote on Instagram, "Somebody Tell My OG @birdman5star $100,000 is a BET.... I Bet Da House On My #EAGLES." Following his original post, AR-Ab posted an update on IG revealing he actually won $200,000.
"Actually it was $200,000... I ain’t do nuffin but buy more houses and pay for my homies Lawyers and Appeal Lawyers," he wrote on a social media post. In related news, Birdman was ordered to immediately surrender the possession of keys and security system access to his 20,000-square-foot compound.
The mogul, who originally took a loan for the home in 2015, was embroiled in a fight with EMG Transfer Agent and was hit with a $12 million foreclosure lawsuit in December 2017. Birdman has also recently got back to music, teaming up with Toni Braxton on the song "Heart Away." A remix of Derez Deshon's "Hardaway,"
Birdman and Braxton put their own spin on the track. "I got something worth more than money/Go to church, free the birds on Sundays/So much pain, I took you away from it/When I pull up on you I'm stuntin'/You got a bad man feeling good/Got a rich nigga from the hood," Birdman spits.

Kim Kardashian West raked in 8 figures while selling out her latest fragrance ... and the entire advertising campaign was done on social media. Kim's new fragrance line,
Kimoji Hearts, sold out of its 300k-plus stock Sunday, only 4 days after it was released. Sources associated with the launch tell us total revenue for the 3 new fragrances -- Bae, Ride or Die & BFF -- topped the $10 million mark.
Kim plugged the scents hard on social media in a campaign that sent the fragrances to both her lovers and her haters, including Taylor Swift, Blac Chyna and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fans still trying to get a whiff of Kim shouldn't be discouraged though ...

Kevin Hart got HAMMERED at the Super Bowl -- and was so drunk , he dropped an F-Bomb live on the NFL Network. Can't really blame Hart ...
he's a hardcore Eagles fan and he had just watched his team beat the New England Patriots live in Minnesota. But when they brought him on the "NFL GameDay Prime" post-game show with Deion Sanders and company ...
he was hyped up, slurring and really, 3-sheets to the wind. After Deion personally escorted him off the stage -- Hart left ... and made a drunken Instagram video trying to explain himself. It's pretty hilarious. Enjoy the hangover.
Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was killed this weekend after being hit by a suspected drunk driver. According to Indiana State Police, Jackson and another man, Jeffrey Monroe, were struck early Sunday morning by a driver off of I-70 in Indianapolis. Both men were killed.
Cops say Jackson and Monroe were standing near a stopped vehicle on the shoulder of the highway when a black Ford F-150 truck swerved into their area and hit them. Police say they believe the driver of the truck, Alex Cabrera Gonsales, was intoxicated. He reportedly tried fleeing the scene on foot after the crash,
but he was apprehended by authorities. The Colts released a statement on Jackson's death, saying, in part ... "We were heartbroken to hear the news of Edwin Jackson’s passing. Edwin was loved by all in the Colts organization." A rep for the team added ...
"We are shocked and saddened by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of both men during this difficult time." Jackson was only 26 years old. RIP
Justin Timberlake's gonna have words with the audio guys, because they ruined his Super Bowl halftime performance.
JT hit the stage Sunday -- his first shot at redemption since the infamous Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction -- and this go-around didn't go much better. The singer was almost impossible to hear, sometimes muted and sometimes almost silent.
Meanwhile, his backup singers could be heard crystal clear. It's unclear if J.T. knew the mic was wonky. The halftime show should have been sponsored by Verizon ... and the answer is no.
P!nk appears to have beaten the flu ... 'cause she just nailed the National Anthem for Super Bowl LII. The pop singer was front and center Sunday to belt out the "Star-Spangled Banner" ahead of kickoff, and despite some earlier concerns
about being able to perform due to catching the flu ... P!nk killed it on the mic. As we reported ... P!nk was forecasting some potential trouble on Thursday during a rehearsal, saying she was praying she'd
be able to get over some flu symptoms that were bogging her down. Looks like she got over it and then some. On a side note ... no one appeared to kneel during her performance.
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are parents after she gave birth Thursday to a "beautiful and healthy" baby girl ... according to Kylie herself. Kylie made the announcement Sunday. She delivered her
firstborn at Cedars-Sinai in L.A., the same hospital where sisters Kim and Kourtney delivered their broods. Rob's daughter, Dream, was also born there. Kylie's kid came out at 4:43 PM weighing 8lbs and 9 ounces. JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA
announced the story in September that Kylie was pregnant with Travis' kid, but she's kept the pregnancy top secret. KJ never confirmed, and totally went underground ... staying out of the spotlight for the last 5 months. We finally got a shot of her a week ago, but even then she was wearing a baggy black sweatshirt. Now the question -- how long will she keep the new baby under wraps? Kylie addressed the secrecy in a statement, apologizing for keeping her fans in the dark.
Mel B's become a major thorn in the side of "America's Got Talent" producers, who now want to kick her to the curb ... and Queen Latifah's their first option to replace her. 'AGT' production sources tell JAMZ 101.5 HD1 ATLANTA
... Mel's been butting heads with people on set and producers think she comes with too much "baggage" for the amount of money the Spice Girl's getting paid. We're told the situation worsened while Mel was enmeshed in her intense divorce from Stephen Belafonte.
You'll recall ... she's feuded on camera with Simon Cowell ... tossing a drink at him, but we're told there's been even more tension behind the scenes. We're told producers wanna replace Mel with Queen Latifah by next season. One potential hurdle is the fact QL's
under contract with the FOX series, "Star." 'AGT' judge auditions begin in 5 weeks -- so, time ain't exactly on their side.Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Travis Scott may have tried to do too much the night before the Super Bowl, and now some of his fans are pissed they're not going to get to see him perform ... JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA
has learned. As we reported ... the rapper was scheduled to work a double shift Saturday night -- performing at a club in Minneapolis at 10:30, then hopping on a private jet to get to a gig in Vegas at 1:30 AM. However ... sources close to Travis tell us his appearance at Myth Nightclub in Minneapolis isn't happening now due to
weather and logistical reasons. We're told Gucci Mane will still be performing, and Travis is still set to make his Vegas show at Vegas Marquee Nightclub in The Cosmopolitan. According to a manager connected to Myth ...
promoters botched where Travis could land his jet in Minnesota -- it was too far away from the club to allow all the timing to work out for him. Refunds are reportedly being offered to bummed fans.

Receivers Terrell Owens and Randy Moss, linebackers Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher and safety Brian Dawkins were the modern-era players voted into the Hall on Saturday. They’re joined in the Hall by senior finalists Jerry Kramer and Robert Brazile, and contributor finalist Bobby Beathard. The voters spent more than eight hours Saturday debating the 15 modern-era finalists.
Finalists must get 80 percent of the vote to make it in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Lewis was as close to a lock of a first-ballot Hall of Famer as there can be. He was a 13-time Pro Bowler, two-time NFL defensive player of the year and a Super Bowl MVP. Lewis finished his career with a Super Bowl win at the end of the 2012 season, his second title with the Ravens, and from there it was clear he’d make it into Canton on the first try.
He made it easily despite pleading guilty to an obstruction of justice charge after two men were killed after Super Bowl XXXIV in Atlanta. Moss was one of the most electrifying players of the past few decades. He had an iconic rookie season, catching 17 touchdowns for a Minnesota Vikings team that went 15-1. His greatest season came in 2007, when he caught an NFL-record 23 touchdowns as the Patriots went 16-0. Moss is the only player in NFL history to post at least three seasons with at least 17 touchdowns. Owens’ snub each of the past two years, after being a finalist both times,
was controversial. He was a five-time All-Pro who is eighth all-time with 1,078 receptions, second in NFL history with 15,934 career receiving yards and third all-time with 153 receiving touchdowns. He announced on Saturday afternoon that his wait was over and he had made the Hall of Fame. He wasn’t at the ceremony, however, because said this week he planned to fly back to Los Angeles to play in a basketball game. “Long overdue, T.O,” said Brett Favre, who helped announced the new class on the “NFL Honors” show. “The numbers don’t lie.” Urlacher was a great linebacker for the Bears,
who have a long history of great linebackers, from 2000-12. He made it the first time he was on the ballot. He was an eight-time Pro Bowler, four-time All-Pro and 2005 defensive player of the year. It’s also fitting that Dawkins made it on such a big weekend for the Philadelphia Eagles, who play in Super Bowl LII on Sunday. Dawkins is one of the most popular players in Eagles history, as his fiery style fit well with the intense Philadelphia fans. Dawkins played 16 seasons, the final three with the Denver Broncos, and made nine Pro Bowls. Beathard’s career as an executive started in 1963 with the Kansas City Chiefs and lasted until 2000, his final season as San Diego Chargers general manager.
He was part of four Super Bowl teams, in 1972 and 1973 as the Miami Dolphina’ director of player personnel and in 1982 and 1987 as Washington Redskins general manager. Kramer, a five-time All-Pro for Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers teams of the 1960s, had to wait a long time for enshrinement. He was a finalist 10 times and didn’t get in, and his 11th time was as a senior finalist. The other senior finalist was Brazile, who played all 10 of his NFL seasons for the Houston Oilers and made seven Pro Bowls.
The good news coming from the Suge Knight camp has been few and far between these days. Now, his fiancee has been sentenced to three years in jail for helping him violate a court order. On Friday (Feb. 2),
Toi-Lin Kelly, 37, was sentenced for a probation violation stemming from Suge's upcoming murder trial for the 2015 death of Terry Carter, only months after agreeing to a plea deal to avoid jail, reports the Los Angeles Times. According to the Times report, the violation stems from Kelly helping Suge get around a court-ordered stipulation on his jailhouse phone calls. Kelly is charged with assisting
Suge arrange interviews with producers at BET about a documentary centered around Death Row Records. She is also accused of communicating with Knight via a private investigator, another no-no. "To me it's pretty blatant, and frankly, jaw-dropping," Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Douglas Sortino said, during the ruling.
Kelly was initially given probation last October, after she was
charged with violating a court order and accused of selling surveillance footage connected to Knight's murder trial to TMZ for $55,000. She pleaded no contest and was sentenced to five years probation, ordered to pay back the $55,000 in restitution and perform 100 hours of community service.
In other Suge-related news, last week, two of his former lawyers were arrested on accessory charges. It is unclear whether the two lawyers' charges are in relation to Suge's ongoing murder trial, but it appears they could be. "The case is very complex in nature, requiring further review by the Los Angeles County district attorney's office," the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement about the matter. Suge's trial is now set to begin in April.
Dae Dae recently got caught slipping, as he was arrested earlier this week on gun and drug charges. The Atlanta rapper was jailed on Thursday (Feb. 1), after being arrested in Green County, Ga., reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Greene County sheriff’s Capt. Lee Stancill tells the paper, “He’s being held on an active warrant from Fulton County.” On Thursday, Dae Dae, born Marquavis Goolsby, was the passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for speeding on I-20. “While the vehicle was pulling over, the deputy observed the front seat passenger crawl into the back seat,”
Stancill said. “After the vehicle stopped, the deputy made contact with the occupants of the vehicle and immediately smelled the odor of marijuana coming from inside the car.” Police located a gun on the floorboard of the vehicle, which they later found out was stolen. Dae Dae denied knowing the pistol was stolen.
Another gun was located under the passenger seat. The "New Wave" rapper was arrested on charges of theft by receiving stolen property, possession of marijuana of less than one ounce and crossing the guardlines with contraband, according to the report. The last charge stems from the
ATLien trying to stash weed in the backseat of the patrol car while he was being transported to jail.
The driver, Dontavious McCrary, was also arrested. He is charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Details on the reason for the warrant from Fulton County have not been released. Dae Dae dropped his 5 Reasons project last July.
P!nk's got the flu -- the nasty flu that's been spreading and intensifying this season -- and her illness could keep her from singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" on Super Bowl Sunday. Sources close to Super Bowl LII production tell JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA
... P!nk had a really tough time making it through her rehearsal Thursday night. We're told it didn't go smoothly ... and everyone involved didn't feel good when it was over. There's more cause for concern too -- P!nk managed to power through her pre-Super Bowl concert Friday at The Armory in Minneapolis ...
but had to rely to backup singers and the audience often to sing for her. She even had to cut off her track "Beautiful Trauma" shortly after starting, telling the crowd, "I can't do it. I hate this ... I can't do that song. I'm sorry."
The singer assured fans she's trying to fight through her illness and "practice the flu away," but as we know ... the flu's hit hard this year and takes a few days to recover ... even with rest. And it doesn't seem like
P!nk's resting too much. Still, she says she promises she's going to do her best. We've reached out to reps for SB52 to see what the backup plan is if P!nk can't sing the National Anthem ... so far, no word back.
Janet Jackson won't be teaming up with Justin Timberlake during the Super Bowl halftime
show to call back to their infamous "Nipplegate" performance, because she won't be there ... JAMZ 101.5 ATLANTA officially confirmed.
Janet tells JAMZ To put to rest any speculation or rumors as to whether I will be performing at the Super Bowl tomorrow: I will not." She adds .. "Thank you for your support and I do look forward to seeing you all very soon."
Timberlake said in a press conference earlier this week that Janet wouldn't be taking the stage with him ... but now we know for certain. We also got video of JT's rehearsal, and our sources say there won't be an 'N Sync reunion either, but Prince will be returning to the stage in Minnesota ... in hologram form.
Just a bit less than a week after the Judge handling Meek Mill's court case was ordered to release documents that potentially prove she's got some biases in regards to the rapper's legal battle, more bits pointing in that direction have surfaced.
On Wendesday (Jan. 31), Complex posted some documents calling our attention to Genece Brinkley, the judge responsible for sending the Philadelphia rapper to prison for two to four years. One doc spotlights Brinkley's relationship with Carla L. Wilson, a City of Philadelphia employee who penned a service letter for the judge's lawsuit against the city. Wilson's initials can be found at the bottom of the doc.
Just hearing the details of that one makes it sound not so great, but there's definitely a legal component. It turns out, Wilson and Brinkley's collaboration could be a violation of the Judicial Code of Conduct, which stipulates that courthouse judges and staff can't work together on personal affairs. The second doc is a 2011 police report. In it, Brinkley admits to having Wilson act as her "official witness" in the
firing of Detective Richard Pacell. Pacell acted as her repair man when he was off from his day job. Brinkley had Wilson come in to see the firing so she could have her in court as a witness. “I gave [Pacell] the Notice of Termination because I had concerns for my personal wellbeing. I asked my secretary (Carla Wilson) to go with me,” she says in the police report. Sounds like that could easily be another violation.
Judge Brinkley goes on to say Pacell became very upset upon his firing, and called her on her phone after he left. Brinkley then admits to putting Det. Pacell on speakerphone so Wilson could confirm that the exchange with the disgruntled detective had taken place when she appeared in court. Again, this definitely sounds like a personal matter. Additionally, the media outlet speaks of a May 25, 2016 incident in which
Judge Brinkley brought Wilson along with her as she visited Meek's community service session at Broad Street Ministry while they were both off the clock. Such behavior is irregular. These docs surface just a couple of days after a court clerk was fired for asking Meek Mill to help pay her son's college tuition.
Jay-Z is officially trying to lock down the Roc-A-Fella diamond hand sign for himself ... TMZ has learned.
The hip-hop mogul just filed legal docs to obtain exclusive rights to the iconic symbol -- which Jay's been flashing for years. He applied for a trademark to use the diamond hand sign in a variety of entertainment services in either music, video,
TV or film. Interestingly, Jay was sued over the symbol in 2005 by Diamond Dallas Page -- but the case was settled out of court, and it doesn't look like DDP ever trademarked it for himself. As far as hip-hop fans are concerned,
Jay's always owned the Roc symbol -- this would just make it official. "Throw your diamonds up 'cause we in this bitch another 'gain!"
Quavo allegedly beat the hell out of a famous jeweler during a Grammys after party at 1Oak in NYC ... JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA has learned.
The alleged victim, Eric the Jeweler, reported the incident to NYPD on Tuesday ... according to law enforcement sources. We're told Eric and Migos were in the club early Monday morning -- around 4:30 AM -- when smack talk over money Quavo allegedly owes Eric ... turned physical. Eric told cops he got jumped by Quavo
and another man who was partying with the group. Sources in the club tell us the other man was NOT Offset or Takeoff. We're told Eric got the hell out of the club with minor injuries to the face, but as he left noticed his $30,000 chain was missing. Eric's filed a robbery report with cops. He's kind of a big deal in the biz, having made
pieces for Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, French Montana and many more. We've reached out to a rep for Migos. Our law enforcement sources say NYPD wants to talk to all the members of the group, as well as their manager. Officers also want to review security cam footage from 1Oak.

n Lean Me" star Jermaine Hopkins is becoming the king of big breaks when it comes to pot busts. Jermaine pled guilty Wednesday to felony possession of marijuana ... according to court officials in Wake County, NC.
We're told Jermaine pled guilty and was sentenced to a minimum of 4 months in prison. Now, here's the break -- that sentence was suspended. That means Jermaine skates on jail time, and instead gets 24 months of supervised probation. If he screws up,
though, he'll be headed to the slammer. TMZ broke the story ... Jermaine was arrested back in October when cops found 5.7 lbs. of weed in his trunk. Jermaine also got probation in 2011 after he was busted for buying 200 freakin' lbs.
of ganja from an undercover cop. He'll now have to submit to drug testing as probation condition. FYI: North Cackalacky has not legalized marijuana, medicinal or recreational.
R. Kelly is getting away with his alleged sex cult because America doesn't care about underage black girls being victimized ...
according to the father of one of Kelly's girlfriends. Angelo Clary tells JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA ... his 20-year-old daughter, Azriel Clary?, is one of the singer's alleged victims. He's incredulous Kelly isn't facing the same fate as Harvey Weinstein or Bill Cosby -- and believes race is the only difference.
Angelo says Azriel was 17 when she met Kelly to discuss her music career. He and Azriel's mother were there,
but he claims Kelly slipped his number to Azriel when they weren't looking. Shortly after that, she moved in with him. Angelo hasn't seen her since, and last spoke to her 8 months ago. As we reported ...
Joycelyn Savage's family also accused Kelly of cutting them off from their daughter. Just like the Savage fam, Angelo says police told him there's nothing they can do unless Azriel claims she's being held against her will.
Disney star Adam Hicks?' world was crumbling long before his arrest for armed robbery, due to his brother doing time, and his mother passing away ... Adam's little brother, Tristan, was the driver in a 2014 car crash in Vegas
that killed a 17-year-old girl. Police say she died after she was ejected from the car. Tristan, who was 18 at the time, took off on foot. He was eventually arrested for fleeing the scene. Sources tell us
Adam had recently gone to Vegas to testify at his brother's parole hearing. Adam paid for Tristan's bail and most of his legal fees during the case. Things went further south a year later when Adam's mother, Lucy, died unexpectedly from a heart attack. We're told Tristan's accident had weighed heavily on her.
DMX just can't seem to catch a break. The veteran rapper is reportedly going back to jail "for failing to comply with conditions of his bail.", X was taken into custody on Tuesday (Jan. 30) after failing drug tests—a violation of his probation in his tax evasion case.
The rapper, who tested positive for opiates, cocaine and oxycodone, was ruled a flight risk by the judge. Last week, DMX was spotted at a St. Louis airport bar buying shots and preaching for customers. In a clip captured at the bar, the rapper can be seen discussing how meaningful his relationship with God is and tries to encourage others
to believe in his words. U.S. Attorney spokesperson Nicholas Biase says prosecutors referenced the recent video and said something appeared to be off with the rapper. Drinking is also a probation violation for the rapper who is supposed be rehabbing. "I'm saddened and disappointed. We'll have to deal with it accordingly," said DMX's
lawyer, Maury Richman, adding that he'll try to get the rapper back into a rehab program. X is set to be sentenced in March. In November, the veteran MC pleaded guilty to tax evasion, admitting that he engaged in a "multi-year scheme to conceal millions of dollars" from the IRS. The rapper is now facing a maximum of five years in prison and most pay restitution to the IRS.

It requires her ex, Tim Norman, to stay at least 100 yards away from her at all times. Jennifer's not satisfied though, and told us she'll be back in court. As for seeing Tim -- who's on OWN's reality show "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" -- in court? Jennifer claims he's a "sick person" who needs help. Looks like this drama will play out on the upcoming
season of "Basketball Wives" -- cameras were following Jennifer and her pal, Evelyn Lozada, outside court. Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
The only thing coming between Kim Kardashian and her fur coat is ... absolutely nothing. Kim fully exposed her right breast while posing in the fur, partially anyway.
She applied the blur, don't blame us. Not sure what her endgame is here -- she didn't caption the pic -- but it might have something to do with her hair. She debuted her Bo Derek-esque braids over the weekend, and got some flak for cultural appropriation.
If you're Kim, and you wanna distract people ... this is a great way to do it. What braids?? Boobs!!
Tyga seems to be back to his old tricks of refusing to pay money he owes, and this time he might get arrested for it ... JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA has learned.
There's a bench warrant out for the rapper after he failed to show up to a court hearing. Tyga was supposed to give the judge a rundown of his available assets to satisfy a $236k judgment against him....
Shyanne Riekena sued Tyga's company and won, claiming she sustained serious head injuries when a light stand came crashing down on her during one of his concerts. Tyga's company was eventually ordered to pony up, but she still hasn't been paid and the judgment has swelled to more than $250k. We've reached out to Tyga, so far no word back.
Kodak Black?'s inability to stay out of jail is hurting a concert promoter ... who's now suing to get his money back after paying him to perform. Corey Minniefield filed a lawsuit against the rapper claiming Kodak cashed a check for $45k
even though he never bothered to show up to earn his dough ... this according to legal docs obtained by JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA. In the docs, Corey says Kodak signed the agreement on February 28, 2017. Problem is ... that same day he was arrested for violating probation. We're told the promoter rescheduled him for a later date but he never showed again.
Corey's suing to get back the money he paid Kodak. Nicholas Fitts had the same problem ... alleging in a legal letter his lawyer fired off to Kodak's team that the rapper never performed in NY on March 3 (Kodak was in jail).
The concert was rescheduled for April 15 and 29 but Kodak was still in jail for violating probation again when he hit up a strip club. Fitts says he's out at least $123k on various booking fees and wants his money back ... or else.
A$AP Rocky recently found out the hard way why most big actors use stunt doubles. During the filming of the new movie, Monster, which the Harlem rapper plays a role in, he broke his nose during a fight scene. Monster, which is an adaptation of a Walter Dean Meyers book about a NYC teen that finds himself locked up on serious charges,
premiered at Sundance Film Festival last week. During an interview with Collider, Pretty Flacko and director Anthony Mandler talked about the especially intense scene. “So Rocky plays King, and John David Washington plays Bobo, and they are the antagonists of the film," explains Mandler. "Because we’re making a small movie and because we have method actors, they did the robbery and all their stunts,
which is like a vicious fight scene. So the gentleman who plays the bodega owner who gets murdered is a very big, tough guy. Like a Spanish, uptown, 260-pound [guy]. So [Rocky] and John David come in and we just go, and it’s a full-bore wrestling fight with a gun flying all over the place, and actually on one of the takes Rocky broke his nose.” The accident occurred with bad timing. “I had like a Vogue shoot like two days later," Rocky added.
“A few hours later that night I had a good headache.” The A$AP Mob member continues to expand his acting portfolio. After making his debut as Dom in the 2015 film, Dope, he had a roles as himself in Zoolander 2 in 2016 and the mockumentary, Pop Star: Never Stop, Never Stopping, the same year. He's also done voice-over work on HBO's Animals. Currently, Monster does not have a nationwide release date.
Nelly is firing back, as promised, at his rape accuser with a countersuit ... claiming she came on to him, and then lied about their sexual encounter to get him criminally prosecuted. Nelly filed the suit in Seattle Friday, and in the docs says ... Monique Greene made her way into his VIP section of the nightclub where he was headlining, and started enthusiastically flirting with him. He says he invited her to join him and others back on his tour bus.
Nelly insists they had consensual sex, and Greene only got pissed when one of his performers -- he told police it was a backup dancer -- entered the room to use his bathroom. He describes Greene as "aggressive and disruptive" and says she was asked to leave at that point. As we've reported, Greene called for an Uber and then called police to report the incident ... leading to Nelly's arrest for rape.
According to the docs, obtained by JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA, after Nelly's arrest ... Greene and her attorney made several statements on the Internet that falsely accused him of raping her. He says the statements were a clear and malicious attempt to get him prosecuted. Nelly adds her claims cost him money -- he was forced to cancel a scheduled performance -- and also damaged his reputation in the music biz. .. the criminal
case against the rapper was eventually dismissed when Greene refused to cooperate with prosecutors. He's also filed a motion to strike Greene's claim he sexually harassed at least 2 other women -- and wants her defamation suit against him dismissed because he has every right to publicly deny what he says is a false claim of rape.
The clerk of the court where Meek Mill was sentenced to prison for violating his probation slipped a note to Meek during the hearing, asking for money for her son's college tuition. JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA has obtained a note written by Wanda Chavarria and addressed to Mr. Williams (Meek's real names is Robert Rihmeek Williams) during his probation violation hearing.
Chavarria says she has bad credit and can't scrape together money for her son's tuition for his last semester at Virginia Commonwealth University. She says, "This will probably be my son's last semester at VCU if the tuition isn't
paid for this year and unfortunately with my bad credit, I am unable to secure a loan or cosign a loan for my son. Anything you can do is very much appreciated." The court clerk adds,
"Every little helps -- please donate what you can to keep him attending VCU." Chavarria tells JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA she did indeed slip Meek the note during the hearing, adding the judge didn't know about it. She says since Meek's from Philly and so is she, she thought he might do her a solid. Chavarria says Meek didn't give her any money, but her son stayed in school and will graduate in May. The judge in the case -- Genece Brinkley -- is under fire,
in part for allegedly asking Meek to rerecord a Boyz II Men song and include a shout-out to her. Meek's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, also says the judge tried to strong-arm Meek to fire Roc Nation as his manager and hire Charlie Mack, whom Tacopina says is a friend of the judge. Mack denies knowing Judge Brinkley.
