Jeezy has carried the torch as a pioneer of the South's trap movement for over a decade, but now it seems that fire is soon going to burn out. The Snowman announced on Twitter on Thursday morning (March 22) that Thug Motivation 104 will be the final album of his decorated rap career. "As the Cold Summer tour comes to an end..
It was inspiring seeing my day one fans since my first album & class TM 101 come out every night. Now class is coming to an end. It's time for Graduation! My Last Album & Final Class: TM104 #TrustYaProcess," Jeezy reflectively concluded. The ATLien's career kicked off in 2005 with the classic Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101 and the 40-year-old continued to drop seven additional albums during his career blessing
fans with endless anthems and memorable moments throughout the journey. Jeezy recently shared his latest album, Pressure, on the 2017 anniversary of The Chronic and has been on the road in support of the project with Tee Grizzley since. Jeezy has yet to reveal a release date for his TM104 finale.
Just about a week after letting loose a preview, BlocBoy JB and 21 Savage have unveiled their new banger "Rover 2.0." The song is an updated version of a previous track from the Memphis rapper and a big-time slapper that definitely justifies the hype surrounding it. JB and 21 get grimy on the new cut.
"Headshot a nigga ass to see what his mind do/Catch him at a red light or a fuckin' drive-thru (that's on my mama)," BlocBoy spits. Nigga playin' with the crew like we ain't gon' shoot/Ooh-woo, now them grapes come through/First 48 and yellow tape keep you from comin' through." For his part, 21 infuses his typically icy, monotone flow into the hard-hitting Tay Keith track. "My baby mama with it, she'll mace ya/Every nigga with me on that gang stuff," he rhymes.
"Slaughter Gang, we came to shoot your kickback up (21)/Nigga disrespect me, he get shit bagged up (21)." It's a banger for sure. "Rover 2.0." follows BlocBoy JB's lauded collab "Look Alive" with Drake, which debuted in the top 5 of the Billboard charts and currently sits at No. 7. The video for the track has more than 80 million plays to date and put even more eyes on the Memphis rapper's "shoot dance." Next up for BlocBoy is his Simi mixtape, which is set to drop next month, and performances at Smokers Club Festival in Long Beach, Calif. on April 28 and the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami on May 13. “Only thing you can expect is to see me. It’s coming soon, real soon," he says of Simi. "I don’t know what I want to call it. It’s a project. It’s the best one, I think, so far."
Over the last few years or so, Diddy and Jay-Z have continually found themselves near the very top of Forbes' wealthiest acts in hip-hop list. Now, it looks like the two are combining their immense wealth to help Black people across the U.S. In a new GQ cover story, Diddy reveals that he and Hov have teamed up to create a new app designed to help people locate Black-owned businesses.
The idea, which is one that stems from the longstanding thought that Black people can empower themselves by building their collective wealth, is that their app will ultimately make it easier to help Black people help themselves. Diddy makes a point to say that won't stop Black people from shopping other places, but rather, it will help Black businesses grow. “This is not about taking away from any other community,” Diddy tells the pub. “We'll still go to Chinatown. We'll still buy Gucci!” He continued before laughing.
“But the application will make it possible for us to have an economic community. It's about blacks gaining economic power.” This news arrives just a day after it was revealed that Hov, who's voiced his issues with the justice system in the past, and Roc Nation were investing $3 million in a startup company by the name of Promise. The program is meant to be an alternative for non-violent offenders who can't afford to be in prison or make bail.
There's no word on when, exactly, Hov and Diddy's app will be hitting our iPhones and Androids, but it does seem like Diddy and Hov are hard at work on it. Here's to hoping we get more details really soon.
Meek Mill's lawyers are continuing their tireless efforts to free him and today (March 20) have filed a request to have Judge Genece Brinkley, who handed down his four-year sentence for violating probation, to be removed from the case.
Meek's legal team said that a primary reason they decided to file the petition for removal was that Judge Brinkley's personal attorney, Charles Peruto Jr., told the press he would sue Meek's legal and management team over their allegations that the judge attempted to extort the "Dreams and Nightmares" rapper. The documents allege that Judge Brinkley took "an unusual interest in, and trying to inject herself into,
[Meek Mill's] personal and professional life." Further, they assert that the case "involved a pattern of judicial (mis)conduct that has prejudiced the rights of a probationer and threatens to undermine the public's confidence in the integrity of the judicial system." In lay-mans terms, this means that Meek's team is following up at their promise to clap back at Judge Brinkley for handing down what they perceive as an overly harsh sentence due to her alleged personal vendetta against the rapper. In addition to filing for the judge to be removed,
they also have requested that Meek Mill be freed immediately on bail pending the proceedings. The last few weeks have been a roller coaster for Meek Mill, after his arresting officer was revealed to have been on the Philadelphia District Attorney's secret list of corrupt cops. He's also been granted a hearing for his Post Conviction Relief Act petition, which could potentially lead to his freedom soon.
The Nas versus Kelis custody battle over their 8-year-old son has thankfully come to an amicable end. The ex-couple has agreed to share joint legal as well as physical custody of their son Knight. The legal docs have not been made available but JAMZ RADIO ATALNAT says the negotiation is very specific to the point of who will be spending time with their son on varying holidays throughout the year, as they will be alternating birthdays with the New York rapper taking the even ones.
Just yesterday (March 19) it was reported that both of the artist's lawyers were firing off insults toward each other making hopes of an agreement grim. Kelis claims to sit in on a deposition when Nas' attorney reportedly referred to the singer's legal representation as a "fattie" and "dick." At the very end of 2017 Esco claimed Kelis was being "hostile" throughout the heated custody battle. The Queens MC previously believed his ex wasn't interested in coming to a mutually-beneficial agreement.
The "Milkshake" artist is also looking for more than the $8,000 a month Nas currently gives her as his net worth continues to skyrocket with a plethora of good investments ranging from Bitcoin to making $40 million by aligning with a doorbell company. It's good to see cooler heads prevail in this situation as the co-parents did right by their child. Nas and Kelis formerly tied the knot back in 2005 before divorcing five years later (May 2010).
If Rick Ross was in dire straits earlier this month, he didn't show it at all while doing TWO shows this weekend ... on both sides of the country.
A day after his first show since being hospitalized -- Ross jetted back to his hometown of Miami for a performance at LIV on Sunday ... and jumped onstage while he was there. It looked like a packed house ... Lil Wayne, Jason Derulo and rapper Fresh were also there. The place was decked out with signs reading,
"Welcome Back Rick Ross." Coming on the heels of his early Sunday morning gig in Vegas ... the Miami appearance wrapped up a weekend schedule that would be considered busy for anyone -- much less someone recovering from an apparent heart-related emergency. He's come a long way in less than 3 weeks.
NBA YoungBoy has been grabbed by the long arm of the law, because he's just been indicted for beating the hell out of his girlfriend ...
and one of the charges is kidnapping. A grand jury in Waycross, Georgia handed down the 2-count indictment for aggravated assault and kidnapping... you see YoungBoy and his GF in a hotel hallway, and he body slams her. As for the kidnapping charge ... he drags her into a hotel room and that's the basis of the charge.
The girlfriend did not want to press charges, saying they were just engaged in horseplay, but people on the Grand Jury didn't buy her story. YoungBoy was released from jail last week on $75k bond.
After spending 18 days in a Georgia jail on aggravated assault and kidnapping charges, YoungBoy Never Broke Again is a free man. According to the Ware County, Ga. Sheriff's Office,
the rapper was released from the Ware County Jail on $75,000 bond Thursday (March 15). While he's been silent on Instagram and Twitter following the news of his release, a video is circulating on social media in which a man who is presumably YoungBoy says, "Only thing they gotta do is free Kodak now." The Baton Rouge, La. rhymer, born Kentrell Gaulden, was arrested on Feb. 26 after being extradited to Georgia from Tallahassee, Fla.,
where he was initially locked up on Feb. 25 on a fugitive warrant. The arrest stems from an incident at a hotel in Waycross, Ga., where YoungBoy got into an altercation with his girlfriend, Jania. The violent incident was caught on hotel surveillance footage and surfaced shortly after the rapper's initial arrest. The video shows YoungBoy and Jania fighting in a hotel hallway. While she initially refuted claims that he assaulted her, the footage finds the 19-year-old 38 Baby rapper slamming his girlfriend to the ground outside of their room.
She's seen attempting to run away from him, but he tries pulling her back toward him roughly. During the commotion, hotel guests called the police, but YoungBoy and his girlfriend had fled the scene. Blood was found in the hotel room following the assault. After leaving Georgia, YoungBoy headed to Florida where he was scheduled to perform at The Moon nightclub. However, his tour bus was stopped by police before he could hit the stage. Authorities discovered the rapper had a warrant in Georgia for the alleged assault.
He was then taken into custody and charged with kidnapping and aggravated assault. On March 5, following his domestic violence-related arrest, prosecutors requested that a Baton Rouge, La. judge revoke the rapper's probation, while the Assistant District Attorney of the East Baton Rouge Parish deemed him "a threat to society and the safety of others." Prosecutors wanted him to serve a suspended 10-year prison term for his role in a non-fatal drive-by shooting that occurred in 2016. During his recent stay in jail, his forthcoming album,
Until Death Call My Name, was pushed back to an April 27 release date and he also let loose the Future-assisted song "Right or Wrong" earlier this week. His girlfriend Jania even previewed a track of her own while YoungBoy was behind bars, in which she raps about the assault. "Yeah, yeah, yeah, we good," she begins on the track. "He was pulling me, I was pulling him/That's how we like to play (that's just us)." Now that he's been released, YoungBoy will likely hit the studio to prepare for the release of Until Death Call My Name, a 13-track project featuring previously released songs "Outside Today" and "Solar Eclipse."Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Snapchat is doing crisis management after getting called out by Rihanna for allowing an ad to run on the social media platform that
poked fun of her domestic violence incident at the hands of Chris Brown. A rep from the National Network to End Domestic Violence tells JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA they were contacted by Snapchat Thursday asking if the social app could bring an NNEDV member onto it's board. The NNEDV rep we spoke to said their role
will be to educate the Snapchat staff on domestic abuse and what's appropriate to post, so they don't make similar mistakes again. Rihanna blasted the ailing social media platform for running an ad for a game app called "Would You Rather?" that disturbingly asked:
Would you rather "Slap Rihanna" or "Punch Chris Brown?" People were quick to call Snapchat tone deaf, and Snapchat rapidly made a mea culpa, calling the ad "disgusting" and admitting they made a "terrible mistake" by not putting the kibosh on it during the reviewing process.
Ray J and Princess Love are having a baby, and they've kept the sex of the kid under wraps -- but if you peep the registry they got for their shower ...
it's pretty clear they're having a girl. Ray and Princess' baby registry is littered with pink -- from onesies to cribs and literally everything in between -- so you can kinda only come to one logical conclusion. The gifts ain't cheap either. A baby basket made of cashmere runs about $2,800, while a travel crib costs about $300.
A lot of outfits range between $25 and $200 ... and a damn rocking sheep (horses are out apparently) will set their guests back nearly $1,000! Speaking of the actual baby shower ... sources tell us Ray J and Princess Love are hosting it this weekend in L.A. at a top-of-the-line hotel, and they're not skimping on expenses.
We're told the whole thing ended up costing more than $250,000. As we reported ... Ray J announced Princess was pregnant this past fall. The kid's due sometime this summer. Anything for baby ... girl.
After a video of Tory Lanez and Travis Scott getting in eachother's faces surfaced this week, Lanez has decided to speak out and make it known that there's no beef.
The footage, which surfaced on Tuesday (March 13) shows the two rappers on what appears to be the tour bus in a heated argument. It's hard to make out the words, but Tory can be heard saying "So, what you wanna do bro? Are we apologizing or you wanna shoot the fade, my nigga? Literally every person can get out of here and we can shoot the fade,
my nigga." Now the 'Memories Don't Die' artist has taken to Twitter to denounce any rumors of bad blood. "Me and @trvisXX been got passed this irrelevant ass argument a year and a half ago .. that's my dawg," he wrote. Travis Scott has yet to comment on the video. However, this is the second public mention
Tory Lanez is making about the argument, after he rapped about it on "Hate to Say," a track off his album which was released last week. "Me and Travis Scott almost fought at the Mala Luna/We both agreed shortly after that it was music," he raps. Given that both Tory Lanez and Travis Scott were on the lineup during the Mala Luna Festival in San Antonio,
Texas in October 2016, it's reasonable to believe the altercation might have taken place then. Good to hear that Tory Lanez and Travis Scott have buried the hatchet. Maybe we'll even get a collaboration out of them soon.
Kanye West's clothing company is being sued for allegedly ripping off camouflage patterns from a competing company.
Yeezy Apparel and Unknwn are being sued by Jordan Outdoor Enterprises over camo hoodies, camo thigh-high boots, cargo pants, hooded bomber jackets, shirts, boots and other stuff. The lawsuit claims Jordan has distinctive markings on its Realtree line and Kanye's companies ripped them off.
Kanye's companies have used Kim Kardashian to model some of the gear. According to the lawsuit, a rep from Yeezy contacted Jordan to discuss using the camo patterns, but when the folks at Jordan said Kanye's company needed to license the items, they went radio silent and then without authorization they
went ahead and copied the patterns. Jordan is asking a judge not only for damage, but to stop Kanye's company in their tracks from continuing to sell the items in question and to turn over and destroy the items that already exist.
YFN Lucci's debut EP Long Live Nut features the popular song "Everyday We Lit," which hit No. 33 on the Billboard Hot 100, but according to an Atlanta rapper,
Lucci stole the song. Rackboy Cam is now suing Lucci saying he jacked his song "Everything Be Lit" featuring Maino and Vado for his track "Everyday We Lit." According to legal documents obtained by JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA, Cam says his song came out first in 2015 and claims Lucci's 2017 song is virtually the same track,
especially the hook which features a similar melody. On "Everyday We Lit," YFN and PnB sing, "Everyday we lit, yeah, everyday we lit, yeah/Everyday we lit, yeah, everyday we lit, yeah," while on Cam's song, Maino sings, "Everything be lit/We lit, we lit." Rackboy Cam also argues that Lucci stole two of the main things Cam brags about in his song—jewelry and women. The rapper now wants a judge to pull
"Everyday We Lit" from the radio and halt all sales immediately. Cam also wants Lucci to hand over any profits he has made from the song. Last week, YFN Lucci dropped his debut album, Ray Ray From Summerhill.
The 20-track project includes features from Offset, YFN Trae Pound, Meek Mill, Dreezy and T.I. The album also includes the previously released songs "Boss Life" and "Street Kings." JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA has reached out to YFN Lucci's team at Warner Bros. Records for a comment on the lawsuit.Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Interscope Records has a new artist on their team after Chicago rapper Juice Wrld inked a deal with the label. According to a report from Billboard, a rep for Interscope confirmed the deal but wouldn't reveal specific details.
But sources claim the deal is worth more than $3 million and would give Juice a joint venture with the imprint. The 19-year-old rapper has made a name for himself on Soundcloud thanks to songs like "All Girls Are the Same" and "Old Me," the former which has surpassed 5 million streams on the website.
The rapper is also featured on a song that was previewed by Madeintyo in February. Following the news of his deal, Juice Wrld hopped on Instagram to celebrate. "Y’all see how good God is 999 Till I die bitch I’m blessed to have a winning team around me too @nolimit_gmoney 2018 I’m taking over the world ??????,"
he wrote. Juice also recently released a video for his "All Girls Are the Same" track, which is directed by fellow Windy City director, Cole Bennett. The animated video plays out like an acid trip on screen as the trippy visuals feature Jucie in various odd scenarios. The video has already racked up nearly 3 million views on YouTube.Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
The baseball player who punched and beat his girlfriend multiple times in a stadium stairwell PROPOSED to her after his arrest ... and she said, "Yes." JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA has learned ...
Danry Vasquez and his girlfriend are describing themselves as a "happy couple" ... roughly a year-and-a-half after he was arrested for the violent incident. Multiple sources tell us ... Danry's GF begged prosecutors not to push forward with criminal charges after the arrest and stuck by his side the entire time. In fact,
Vasquez posted a photo in Oct. 2016 showing the two smiling together and described her as "the person who is always with me in the good and the not so good!" "You are the love of my life and with you I will be until the end of the world princess!!!" The two got engaged around Nov. 2017. We're told the couple had been
dating since they were teenagers and the GF was adamant that the attack was "an isolated incident." We spoke with Danry's attorney who tells us, "I recall conversations about the extreme stress he was under and the pressures to perform that he was young.
Came to USA at a young age with no parents (accommodating him) and no guidance ... just his dreams. She never excused his behavior just loved him enough to believe they could move forward."Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Cardi B's set to pop out her baby this summer but, unlike Beyonce, she's not letting pregnancy stop her from performing at Coachella. Sources close to Cardi B tell JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA
... the rapper's due the first week of July and will be close to 7 months pregnant with Offset's kiddo when she takes the stage next month at Coachella. It's unclear if she'll dress to cover up what will most likely be a noticeable baby bump by the time she takes the stage.
Notice, she was more modest last week at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.... Cardi's people told nightclub staffers she's pregnant during Super Bowl weekend. She denied it, and so did her baby daddy ... but we're told the baby train's full steam ahead. Our sources say Cardi plans to remain in work mode until she pops.
For example, we're told she's spent the last 2 weeks buried in the studio to complete her debut album. She also fully intends to go on tour with Bruno Mars in September ... a whopping 2 months after giving birth to her first child. She's got a lot on the line --
about $100k per night of the tour, and the same goes for her Coachella dates. That's a lotta diapers.

Meek Mill won't get a fight from the District Attorney's Office on his motion to be released on bail ... JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA has learned.
The D.A. filed docs Wednesday saying there's a "strong showing of likelihood" that Meek's conviction will be reversed due to a police corruption scandal in Philly. Prosecutors point out hundreds of previous convictions have already been overturned, and they think Meek will follow suit, shortly.
As a result, prosecutors see no reason for Meek to be held without bail. As we reported, Meek's attorneys have filed several motions, including one for him to be released while the court decides whether to uphold the 2 to 4 year sentence he got from Judge Genece Brinkley. Meek's mother, Kathy Williams, tells JAMZ RADIO NETWORK ...
"I would like to thank the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office for carefully evaluating my son’s matter and not opposing the request for bail. The fact that Robert’s entire conviction could be overturned is a blessing and I pray that God gives Judge Brinkley the wisdom to make the right decision and allow my son to return home to his family. I truly believe justice will prevail.” Story developing ...

and Brielle's purse and wallet got jacked. It's unclear if cops have a suspect yet, but Kim seems pretty confident her security cams should help bust the perp. She tweeted out,

Juelz Santana's gun and drug possession charges just became more clear -- he allegedly had oxycodone on him during the airport bust ... JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us Juelz had eight oxycodone pills in his travel bag when he was arrested for unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance at Newark International Airport last week.
He's due in court Wednesday to face the drug charge. As we reported ... Juelz was arrested Monday after fleeing security when TSA found a gun in his carry-on bag in the x-ray tunnel. The drug charge is a felony, for which he's been formally charged.
Nick Gordon's girlfriend -- the one he was arrested for beating -- has fired off a letter to the judge saying it was all her fault. Laura Leal filed docs in Seminole County, Florida ... and
they include the letter asking the judge to lift the no-contact order. Laura says she needs Nick's love and guidance and wants to speak to her boyfriend again. In the letter, obtained by JAMZ RADIO, Laura says the case against Nick is not accurate, particularly when it comes to her alleged injuries on the night of Nick's arrest.
She writes, "Pictures were taken of my face the night of the incident because cops stated my lip was 'bleeding' when in all reality my lips were chapped and dry ... There was no marks on my face." Laura says she suffers from severe anger issues and the whole thing was a misunderstanding. She wrote, "I am seeking help and determined to take
the condition seriously as I have been diagnosed bipolar. He is not at blame, and should not be pushed into any trouble or consequences due to my actions." This all seems to line up with what Nick said when he called 911.... Nick sounded frantic, and cried as he said he "sounds so lame because I'm getting beat up by a woman."
Meek Mill made an appearance at a rally thrown for him in Philly this week -- but he did it from behind bars ... and over the phone.
The rapper phoned in to the Reform Philly rally Tuesday through his attorney, Joe Tacopina, who put him on speaker and let him talk into the mic. The rally is aimed at "Bringing Injustice to Light," and was partially created with Meek in mind ...
#Justice4Meek. Meek thanked his supporters for coming out and expressed his appreciation for their continued efforts to get him released from prison. He also talked about his love for Philly, as well as his rough upbringing.
He said his long probation sentence at age 18 held him down. Al Sharpton was in attendance, too, as was Meek's mom ... who held a banner in her son's name onstage. Jay-Z's music platform, Tidal, streamed the entire event.
Kanye West probably isn't gonna have to climb a mountain to wrap up his new album, 'cause he's got some friends tagging along with him now to make the hike easier.
Kanye went back to Wyoming this past week with a lot of other people ... we're told to work on his forthcoming album. He brought along his protege, Travis Scott ?and others. They all seem to be in Jackson Hole -- a valley between a couple mountain ranges in the state. Some other creative types that have been in the area recently, and who've been linked to Kanye, include producer Pi'erre Bourne and mogul ASAP Bari.
Rapper King Louie and The Dream -- both of whom have collaborated with Kanye -- are also there posing for the camera. Producer Jeff Bhasker and Travis' manager are in town as well.... Kanye hit the mountaintop retreat at least a couple different times last year to work on new music for his album. We were told he resorted to the retreat to get away and hone his craft.
Looks like he's recruited some help for the creative process. No word on a release date yet ... but you gotta hope it's nearing an end with this kind of fire power on deck. Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Lil Wayne and Birdman's run-in at LIV Nightclub was nothing out of the ordinary, at least for them, because they've been working on burying the hatchet for months ... JAMZ RADIO has learned.
Sources connected to the former Cash Money duo tell us the $51 million lawsuit between them is still very much on, but they've managed to separate that from their personal relationship. As our source put it, "They're family and that's bigger than money." We're told they've talked several times over the past few months,
and although it's no longer the father-son relationship they used to have, they ARE making an attempt to squash the beef. As for Sunday night's embrace at LIV -- Wayne had a section reserved downstairs, while Birdman was upstairs.
Neither knew the other was there until DJ Stevie J shouted them out. Birdman's son, Bryan Jr., came down and said "hello" to Weezy first, before Wayne stopped by Birdman's table where they hugged it out.
The music world's biggest power couple are hitting the road once again. On Monday morning (March 12), Beyonce uploaded three Instagram posts announcing the coming of her and Jay-Z's On the Run II Tour,

Bobbi Kristina Brown's ex, Nick Gordon, was the one who called cops and sounded frantic on the phone, claiming his girlfriend was losing it on him ...
according to the 911 call. In the audio, obtained by JAMZ RADIO NETWORK, you can hear Gordon crying and sobbing on the phone, saying he "sounds so lame because I'm getting beat up by a woman." He claims she threw a bottle at him. As we reported ... Gordon was taken into custody Saturday after police
responded to a possible domestic violence incident. He told cops his girlfriend, Laura Leal, had attacked him out of nowhere ... but she claims he beat her on the ride home from a bar. The arresting officer says he saw visible marks on Leal and placed Gordon under arrest. He'd been released on bail as of
Sunday evening. As for the Brown family, Bobby says he's willing to help Leal with services through the Bobbi Kristina Brown Serenity House in the hope she could avoid the same fate as his daughter. Gordon was arrested for another alleged domestic
violence incident last year as well. Gordon was under scrutiny in connection with Bobbi Kristina's death ... he even lost a wrongful death lawsuit, and is currently on the hook for $36 million to her estate.
11:37 AM PT -- According to the arrest report, obtained by JAMZ RADIO NETWORK, Gordon told cops his girlfriend refused to leave his residence after throwing a bottle at him and ripping his shirt. He claims she attacked him for no reason, and that she was "crazy."
But according to Gordon's GF, per police, she picked up Gordon from a bar and that while driving back he allegedly struck her in the right side of her face several times. She also says in the report that he pulled her hair and told her he should make her crash her car. Once home, she claims they got into another verbal altercation.
The arresting officer says he saw visible marks on the GF, and placed Gordon under arrest even though the woman refused to press charges. Nick Gordon, who has been under the microscope for years in the death of Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina, has been arrested for domestic violence. Gordon was arrested by cops in Seminole, Florida for an incident referred to as "battery-touch or strike." It is listed as a domestic violence case. He posted a $500 bond, but has not been released as of yet. As reported,
Gordon was under scrutiny in connection with Bobbi Kristina's death in 2015. There were allegations of domestic violence in the house just before she was found dead in a bathtub. The investigation has never been closed. Gordon lost a wrongful death suit and is on the hook for $36 million to Bobbi Kristina's estate. Gordon was also arrested in June, 2017 for domestic violence involving a new girlfriend, but the woman stopped cooperating and the charges were dropped.
The raven-haired mystery woman seen huddling in the sack with Odell Beckham Jr. appears to be an aspiring French Instagram model — who exclusively dished to The Post about allegedly scoring with the Giants wide receiver.
“I do not remember all of the evening, only that we met in a bar and then found ourselves at a hotel and we had passed the night together,” Laura Cuenca wrote in her native French during a private message exchange on Instagram. The two met March 8 at the Le Queen nightclub in Paris — and eventually wound up at the Four Seasons George V off the tony Champs-Élysées, she claimed. “He left the morning [after] to take his planes for Madrid,” she claimed, refusing to elaborate. Beckham, whose reps didn’t return calls for comment, was
in the City of Light at the time, posting pics from Paris on his own Instagram account throughout the first week of March. The gorgeous Gallic temptress — @ellcnc on Instagram — was identified Saturday by online sleuths as the person who uploaded the viral Friday night clip, Black Sports Online reported. The secretly filmed, 7-second video, likely first posted on Snapchat, shows the 25-year-old Giant holding what appears to be a thick, brown blunt in his left hand. The footage then pans to the woman, in bed alongside a card holding a suspicious-looking white substance.
It’s unclear if the video is edited to show the brunette bombshell or if she turns the lens on herself. Beckham, who appears unaware he is being filmed, can be heard uttering, “trying to get you to sleep with someone” in the clip. Cuenca — who has about 1,000 followers on Instagram — uploaded a video of herself there Thursday wearing what appears to be the same black tube top with laces up the sides as she wore in the video with Beckham. On Feb. 22, she also posted a photo of herself sporting the same
black-rimmed-glasses filter used in the Beckham clip. Other selfies show her luxuriating in a fur coat, sipping champagne and snacking on sushi. Her taste for the luxe life brought her to Italy and Spain in 2016, where she posted a video of herself at the Marina Beach Club in Valencia that August and photos at the Quality Hotel Atlantic Congress & Spa in Turin. The model would not confirm or deny if she posted the Beckham video. She asked to be compensated before revealing more. Beckham seemed to address the clip in a tweet
Friday, writing: “Old news still makes a good story….I guess. #CatchUpWereIn18.” Speculation has swirled over whether the bombshell video will affect the 25-year-old wideout’s shot at extending his rookie contract and become the highest-paid receiver in the NFL. Beckham is slated to earn $8.5 million in 2018, after his 2017 season was cut short due to a fractured left ankle. The Giants have said they are aware of the video, and would not comment. Beckham’s rep did not return a call.
Odell Beckham Jr gets plenty of attention on the football field, but this time the NFL player is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. The New York Giants wide receiver was caught on camera holding what appeared to be a suspicious brown cigarette. Next to him was a woman holding what looked to be a credit card in her hand,
with a white substance in front of her. Beckham, 25, can be heard telling the woman 'Trying to get you to sleep with...', before the three-second clip cuts out. The pair appear to be sitting on a bed, with a medium-sized pepperoni pizza in front of them. It remains unknown who filmed the video, which leaked on Friday night, or when or where it was filmed. The New York Giants are aware of the video, according to the New York Daily News. Beckham, who suffered an ankle surgery during Week 5 of the NFL 2017 season, has been in Los Angeles undergoing rehabilitation and checking in with the team.
The video comes just hours after speculation began on just how much money the star player could earn after Mike Evans' historic contract with Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers player scored a five-year $82.5million contract with the Florida team, the highest a receiver has ever earned in league history, according to NorthJersey.com. Many speculated that Beckham, who will be paid $8.459million next year on his rookie contract, could receive as much as $100million with his next deal. It remains unknown how the video could affect his
asking price - if at all. But this isn't the first time Beckham has gotten into trouble. Beckham punched a hole in the wall outside a locker room at Lambeau Field after a 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers. He also reportedly banged his head against the wall in anger after the season-ending Wild Card playoff game. And just a week before that, Beckham banged his head into a door and screamed after the Giants' 19-24 loss to
the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16. It was reported that Beckham had to be escorted into the locker room by John Mara. He also angered the Giants' co-owner earlier this year when he pretended to pee like a dog while celebrating a
touchdown against the Eagles in September. 'What he did was completely unacceptable,' Mara said. 'I told him that in no uncertain terms'. Mara and the team have yet to issue a statement on Beckham's video and the player has not commented on it.
Rapper Juelz Santana clearly had something to hide Friday when he tried going through security screening at Newark Liberty International Airport ... with a gun.
The rapper/actor was hoping to breeze through the checkpoint when the screener saw the firearm in the x-ray tunnel ... law enforcement sources tell JAMZ RADIO NETWORK. Apparently Santana knew what was up,
and he booked it, fleeing the airport. Cops from the Port Authority PD are now on the hunt for Santana. Bringing a weapon to an airport security checkpoint is an arrestable offense and if the gun is loaded the fine approaches $10k.
Drake was talkin' trash about the Houston Rockets Friday night during a game in Toronto, but after the Raptors snapped Houston's
17-game winning streak he became super gracious and invited his foes to chow down at his restaurant. Before sharing a meal, the rapper was front at center for 'Drake Night' at the game, where there was a big giveaway for fans -- special
shirts and what not. After Toronto achieved victory by a score of 108 to 105, Drake invited Chris Paul, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Clint Capela, Gerald Green and other members of the Rockets to have dinner at his new restaurant, Pick 6ix.
The dinner was sponsored and hosted by D'USSE and CP3. Interesting ... only one member of the Raptors was there ... DeMar DeRozan, the dude who made the game-winning shot.
After a serious health scare landed him in the hospital, Rick Ross is thankful to finally be home. On Thursday (March 8), the Rather
You Than Me rapper shared a message on Instagram, thanking his fans for the support. "Ain’t nothing like home ????????. I love y’all—WLR," Rozay wrote in the caption of a black-and-white photo of himself. The MMG boss was released from the hospital on March 5 after being found unresponsive in his Miami home on Thursday (March 1).
An ambulance was sent to Rozay's home after a person called 911 and described the rapper as "slobbing from the mouth" and breathing heavily earlier that night. Ross allegedly received respiratory treatment for what may have been pneumonia. Yesterday, the frantic 911 call placed by a male friend of Ross was revealed. During the phone call, the man mentions that Rozay was breathing heavily,
shaking in a cold sweat and even threw up on himself at one point. The man mentioned the rapper wasn't talking to him but did nod his head in response. While it's uncertain what exactly happened to Ross, a report from TMZ claimed the rapper was on a form of life support in the cardiac unit of the a Miami-area hospital.
The claim was quickly denied by Fat Trel, who confirmed Rozay was in the hospital but shot down the notion of him being on life support. "HE GOOD... HE IN DA HOSPITAL BUT HE IS NOT ON 'LIFE SUPPORT' ... HE GOOD," Fat Trel wrote on social media.Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com

Rick Ross? isn't the only person to suffer a medical emergency at his home recently ... his manager died there just months before Ross' hospitalization.
According to the investigation report ... cops were called to the rapper's Florida home on December 8 because Black Bo stopped breathing. He was found lying on his back on the bathroom floor when the officer arrived. Rick's manager was pronounced dead shortly after fire rescue arrived on scene. The captain noted there was vomit in the toilet.
According to the report ... Rick, Black and others were out partying the night before and didn't get back to Ross' home 'til around 5 AM. Rick told the cop Black didn't seem like himself at the club, and may not have been feeling well. One of Black's friends tried calling Black several times but he didn't answer, so he went into
his room and found him unresponsive in the bathroom. According to the report, the medical examiner determined Black's cause of death was atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease ... clogging of the arteries. Black Bo was 45. As we reported ... Da Boss had his own medical emergency at his home last week, coughing up blood and going in and out of consciousness until a friend called 911 to get him to the hospital. Rick's now back at home recovering.Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Since every NFL team is afraid to put him on a roster, Colin Kaepernick used his spare time to take in a movie -- as a VIP guest at a
NYC screening of "A Wrinkle in Time." Kaep -- rockin' his trademark fro and black leather jacket -- and his girlfriend, Nessa, showed up to the Walter Reade Theater for the special Oprah Magazine screening of the flick, which stars Oprah. The QB chopped it up with Gayle King on the red carpet -- and seemed to be all smiles.
Turns out, Kaep was invited by 'Wrinkle' director Ava DuVernay -- and thanked her with a special Twitter message after the flick. "Thank you @ava for inviting me and @nessnitty to the premiere of your brilliant film
A Wrinkle in Time! Continue to pave the way for Black women in Hollywood. I can't wait to see what's next!"

King Louie is going head-to-head with his record label after suing the company on March 2 for more than $50,000.
According to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times, the Windy City rapper alleges that Lawless, Inc. breached their contract agreement. Louie originally signed a deal with the label in 2012 for a contract that laid out an "exclusive artist and co-publishing agreement," the suit states. Under the agreement, the "32 Bars" artists was obligated to release five albums over five years. The agreement also allowed the label to sign contracts with other companies that would distribute the rapper's music.
But while Louie met all of the requirements set forth in the deal, he has no record of any distribution agreements. The record label allegedly breached the contract by failing to pay any royalties to Louie and according to the suit, Lawless hasn't provided records of royalties that were paid or owed to the rapper. "[King Louie's music] has received significant air time and digital play and otherwise generated significant purchases by the general public," the lawsuit reads. However, Louie is unable to determine how much money the songs made because Lawless hasn't granted him access to the records.
Louie is now seeking a judgement that would provide him with access to Lawless' financial records, as well as grant him any royalties that he is owed. In addition, the rapper also wants more than $50,000 in damages. King Louie rose to prominence in 2010. A mainstay in the Chicago hip-hop scene thanks to mixtape's like Drilluminati 2, the rapper eventually found himself on a track with Kanye West, appearing on Yeezy's "Send It Up" off the Yeezus album.
Usher and his wife were lovey-dovey just days ago and seemingly unbreakable ... which is why their split came as an utter shock to friends.
Sources close to the couple tell JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA ... Usher and Grace Miguel were in L.A. for a night at the movies just last week watching "Black Panther." We're told Usher brought his kids ... looking every bit like a close-knit family. As we reported ...
they were still together as of December and had been keeping a low profile ... with Usher's lawsuits and all. But, sources tell us Usher and Grace had been on the regular at restaurants and stayed at the same house together ... showing zero signs a split was looming. Another sign Usher and Grace didn't appear to be having marital problems --
just a few weeks ago, friends say they had been planning a vacay out of the country together. But then, Tuesday came ... Usher and Grace announced their split. The question ... what happened? Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Tommy Lee has now gone nuclear against his son, Brandon ...
not only does he want to press criminal charges, he wants a judge to order Brandon to stay clear of him. Sources connected to Tommy tell JAMZ RADIO STATION, Tommy was willing to withdraw the police report he filed after Brandon punched him in the face
during a heated argument over Brandon's mom, Pam Anderson. But, there was a string attached ... Tommy wanted his kid to apologize. Things changed dramatically after Brandon released a statement that the fight was the result of his dad's alcoholism.
Now Tommy is steadfast ... he wants his son charged with a crime and also wants a restraining order prohibiting the 21-year-old from going near him or his house.
Too Short's firing back at his rape accuser by revealing explicit text messages he says prove she "sexually pursued him," they were dating and there was no rape ...
JAMZ RADIO has learned. The rapper's attorneys filed docs Wednesday, claiming text messages from Teana Louis -- who's suing Short for sexual battery -- show they had a hot and heavy, consensual relationship. The salacious texts, in the docs obtained by JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA, include Teana telling Short she loves him and calling herself his wife. In another she refers to his "big penis" and the
fact she could see it through his pants. The most suggestive one reads, "Baby I wish you were here right now, just talking to u on the phone makes me wet." Too Short's high-profile lawyers, Rob Reichman and Sean Macias, say Teana has no evidence to back her claim of sexual assault, and she filed the suit purely to harass their client.
They say if she insists on continuing, they'll go after her legally for filing a frivolous suit. We broke the story ... Teana sued the rapper for allegedly sexually assaulting her multiple times between June and October 2016. Too Short told us the allegations were an extortion attempt ... which led to her refiling and tacking on a defamation claim, too.Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Gunna has drummed up a huge buzz since he's been rolling out his popular Drip Season mixtape series, and it looks like Gucci Mane
wants him on his team. The Atlanta veteran tweeted an offer earlier today (March 7) to sign the 24-year-old rapper for $1 million to his 1017 Records label. Although Gunna has yet to respond to the initial offer, Young Thug, who is the rising star's label head at YSL Records, already sent out a concrete rejection.
The Beautiful Thugger Girls hitmaker tweets back directly at Guwop, telling his ATL brother that he gave his artist the $1 million already to keep him on the YSL roster. There doesn't seem to be any beef over the business dealings between Thugger and Gucci, but we're sure Gucci isn't going to let an opportunity go too easily.
Gunna already made a lot of noise at the beginning of last month by dropping his Drip Season 3 tape, which has tons of guest features including Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Lil Yachty, Lil Durk, Nav, Lil Baby and more. Check out Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com

Pharrell got "GIRL" trademarked for music which applies to recordings, online books and other various medias, as well as electronics. Point being, he ain't done with the girl just yet.
Life coach Iyanla Vanzant believes folks should throw their support behind Mo’Nique because her Netflix boycott goes beyond just her personal pay issues.
“Mo’Nique can’t fight that battle by herself and people will not stand up for the battle or not stand up for the cause because it’s Mo’Nique, well, it didn’t start with Mo’Nique,” Vanzant told Madame Noir Tuesday, March 7. “So either we’re going to do it or we’re not, but don’t make this about Mo’Nique. It’s not about Mo’Nique. Mo’Nique is just saying what other people have refused to say.” The OWN Network personality weighed
in on the matter following the comic’s recent headline-making interviews where she continues to explain why she deserved more than $500,000 for a comedy special. Vanzant further pointed out that racism’s continued prevalence in America means people shouldn’t be surprised that Mo’Nique — who alleged Netflix engaged in “color bias” and “gender bias” when discussing her deal — was lowballed compared to Amy Schumer, who got $13 million, and Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock, who each got $20 million.
“Number one, we keep acting like we’re shocked and surprised that we still living in a racist country when the president can talk about bad hombres and s—-hole countries, what is that? Why aren’t we doing something about that right there? The mere fact that brown people in this country, that we have relegated to Mexicans and we forget about Dominicans and Salvadoreans and Panamanians and all the cocoa brown people
that he called bad hombres, we know that they get paid less than everybody else. So if we let them pay the brown people less, why do we think they won’t pay the Black people less? I don’t understand.”
The saga of Meek Mill's arrest continues,
yesterday it was revealed that the Philadelphia police officer who arrested Meek in 2007, a case that he's currently incarcerated for again after disobeying parole violations, has a history of corruption and was once investigated by federal authorities. The Philadelphia Inquirer has been pursuing a "secret list" of police officers that the District Attorney's office actively keeps off the witness stand due incidences of "lying, racial bias, or brutality." That list was released to the public today, and includes none other than
Officer Reginald Graham, who was a key player in the arrest and conviction of Meek in 2007 for gun and drug charges. He was the sole witness to testify against Meek at his 23008 trial. At the time, Meek Mill was 21, and was sentenced to 10 years probation for his crimes. In November, nearly 10 years after his conviction, Meek was found to have violated the terms of his probation and sentenced to four years in prison. The harsh sentence drew wide criticism from the hip-hop community and beyond,
and many artists such as Drake, Beyonce and Jay-Z have rallied for his freedom in the months since he's been in jail. The "corrupt" list includes 28 other police officers with reported incidents from lying on the stand to aiding in a prostitution ring. Officer Graham was investigated by federal authorities in 2013 for an undisclosed reason that is simply listed as "multiple incidences of corruption." He never faced any penalties because he retired before his hearing took place. This is good news for Meek and his lawyers,
who filed a Post-Conviction Relief Act petition a few weeks back. If they are granted the PCRA, it would throw out Meek's former conviction and make him eligible for a retrial. The documents submitted by Meek's lawyers alleged that Graham often stole money that was found during searches and arrests, beat up suspects and admitted at one point to another police officer that he beat up Meek in 2007 or 2008.
The act sparked similar motions from other inmates that feel they were wrongfully convicted by corrupt Philly cops. Given this new information, and that a second former Philly police officer has previously said on record that Graham lied about the circumstances surrounding Meek's arrest, hopefully this should be enough for Meek Mill to get another shot at justice.
Rihanna's got to be breathing a sigh of relief after finally selling the West Hollywood home she's been struggling to unload for almost 5 months.
RiRi purchased the 2,800 square foot pad in August of last year for $2.75 million. The singer had a quick change of heart because the 4 bedroom, 4 bath home was back on the market only 3 months later for $2.85 mil.
Then in January, the home was listed as a rental for $16.5k a month. It didn't seem like there were any takers, despite all the amenities, including a pool and a guesthouse. The home finally sold last week for the $2.85 million asking price,
so Rihanna walked away with an extra $100k. With real estate commissions and carrying costs, it looks like she gained what is probably an insignificant amount of money for her.
Trey Songz could be legally blocked from going near a woman who claims he struck her ... at least if attorney Lisa Bloom has her way. JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA
has learned Bloom is going to court Tuesday morning ... asking a judge for a restraining order on behalf of the woman who claims he struck her during NBA All-Star Weekend. the woman says she and Trey were at a Hollywood party when he hit her in the face out of jealousy because she was talking to another man. Bloom says in her legal docs Songz choked her client,
then began punching her in the face several times until she fell to the ground and he continued striking her until security pulled him off her. The woman says Songz was hitting with such force it was as if 2 men were fighting. She says she suffered bruises to her face and hand. The woman also says she was trying to get away and called an Uber, but Songz grabbed her cell phone and threw it down a hill. She says she had a second cell phone and he also took that and threw it down a hill. The woman filed a police report and
went to the hospital just after the incident. Cops are still investigating. She says she works in the nightclub industry and Songz frequents some of her clubs and she's scared of him ... which is why she's filing the restraining order. Songz's lawyer, Shawn Holley, tells JAMZ RADIO STATION, "Trey has not spoken with Ms. Buera nor has he attempted to speak with her since the night of the gathering." According to people connected to Songz,
the woman has tried reaching out to friends of Trey since the party, but they did not respond to her. Holley says there were witnesses present at the party who dispute the woman's account. Bloom tells JAMZ RADIO STATION , "We are taking this step today to protect my client's right to peacefully live and work, and we will continue to fully cooperate with law enforcement's investigation of this serious matter," adding,
"We are asking just one of them with a conscience to reach out to us and tell us what they saw." Songz is currently on probation for pleading guilty to 2 misdemeanors after he went crazy throwing anything he could find off stage at his concert in 2016. He also was sued by a fan after he allegedly smacked her phone out of her hand and into her face, breaking her glasses.
Michelle Obama came face-to-face with the toddler who went viral for staring at the ex-First Lady portrait -- and the new dynamic
duo had a dance party that deserves to go viral, too. Mrs. Obama met up with 2-year-old Parker Curry ... the little girl who was photographed last week as she stood, staring at Michelle's official portrait. Seems like Michelle took notice and
wanted to give the kid a taste of the real deal. Aside from dancing with her to Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," Michelle left Parker with a sweet message, saying ... "Keep on dreaming big for yourself...and maybe one day I'll proudly
look up at a portrait of you!" Inspirational stuff like this is kinda the Obamas' thing since leaving the office. This one should even get a smile out of Michelle's critics.Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Stacey Dash is going to have some stiff competition in her run for Congress, because we've learned one of the most popular politicians in Southern California is
about to throw her hat in the ring to oppose her. We've learned Compton Mayor Aja Brown will announce on Thursday that she is running for Congress in the 44th District ... which covers Compton, Watts, San Pedro and North Long Beach. Our sources say Brown had no intention of running as late as a week ago -- the day
Dash announced she's running for a seat in the House of Representatives. We're told a number of members from the California Congressional delegation contacted Brown and urged her to run against Dash. Brown has been an ambassador for Compton, often praising people like Kendrick Lamar who grew up in her
city and went on to greatness. A source who has interacted with Brown tells JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA the Compton Mayor has privately groused that Dash is "running for notoriety" and has no relationship with the district. Brown -- a Democrat -- is a super-popular mayor whose voice has been strong on various issues,
including protecting food programs and housing initiatives. We're told Brown herself feels it's by no means a shoo-in that she'll win, because of almost unparalleled voter apathy in the district. We're told, although she thinks the district is
heavily democratic, the Republicans just get out and vote more often.Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com
Rick Ross' hospitalization did more than just scare his family, it caused his daughter Toie's $100k Sweet 16 to get pushed back, too.
Sources close to Rick tell us the rapper booked a section of the Casa Casuarina -- formerly the Versace Mansion -- nearly 7 months ago for Toie's bash. We're told the party was slated for March 17, but after Rick was
rushed to the hospital last week, his family called to postpone the party as they didn't know how long the boss would be in for. Ross is known for throwing elaborate parties for his daughter, with performers like Rich Homie Quan,
Trina, Meek Mill and Ace Hood. We're told this year's event was going to be the biggest yet -- with hundreds of people invited, performances and several surprises for Toie.. Rick was released from the hospital Monday morning after a
4-day stay for apparent serious heart issues. Our sources say at this time, there's no makeup date scheduled at the Versace Mansion.
Aldon Smith has a warrant out for his arrest following an alleged domestic violence incident this weekend.
Law enforcement sources at the San Francisco Police Department tell us their Special Victims Unit has obtained a warrant for Smith's arrest on charges stemming from a DV incident he allegedly fled from this weekend.
The alleged victim is his fiancee. Cops tell us the charges listed on the warrant include willful infliction of corporal injury (aka DV), assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism -- all of which are misdemeanors. We're also told police are working with his legal counsel
to arrange a day and time for him to turn himself in and be processed. As we reported ... Smith checked himself into rehab with the help of his fiancee's parents. She told us she was worried about him and was only focused on getting him well again. The Raiders released Smith after the DV news broke.
Good news. After spending four days in the hospital, Rick Ross has been released and is at home on the mend. The Miami rapper was released early this morning (March 5), reports JAMZ RADIO SATION ATLANTA,
and will be receiving further in-home care. As previously reported, Rozay was found unresponsive in his Miami home on Thursday (March 1). An ambulance was called around 3:30 a.m., with the person on the line describing the rapper as "slobbing from the mouth" and breathing heavily earlier that night. He was rushed to the hospital, where he allegedly received respiratory treatment for possible pneumonia.
Things appeared to go downhill after reports started to circulate that Rozay had been placed on a life support machine that was assisting with his heart and lung function. Those reports were denied by MMG artist, Fat Trel, who helped get the word out on social media. "JUS TALKED 2 MY BIG HOMIE... HE GOOD...
HE IN DA HOSPITAL BUT HE IS NOT ON “LIFE SUPPORT” ... HE GOOD????????????," Trel wrote on Instagram. During the uncertain time, hip-hop artists hopped on social media to wish the Rather You Than Me rapper well, with everyone from Snoop Dogg, Missy Elliott, Gucci Mane, LL Cool J and Chuck D sending up prayers.
The health scare comes at a time when, outwardly, Ross looks to be the healthiest he's been in a while, after losing 100 pounds in recent years. Listen Live: www.jamz101fm.com

His blood alcohol level was a shocking .29. Miraculously, he was not seriously injured. Wilkos stated he's extremely remorseful and is already getting professional help.
Stevie J wouldn't put up in his child support case ... so he's getting locked up. The U.S. Attorney Southern District of NY, tells JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA ... the 'Love & Hip Hop' star will have to turn himself in to authorities April 10 for failure to pay child support.
Stevie owes more than $1.3 MILLION in back child support. These cases are usually handled in state court, but the amount owed, the length of time he was in arrears, and the fact that the people involved are in different states all make it a federal case. The judge also skewered Stevie for ID'ing his probation officer's name on social media....
Stevie pled guilty for failure to pay child support back in February 2017. He accepted full responsibility and had been ordered to fork over $1,304,835.86. He was also placed on probation for 3 years ... unless he paid off his tab sooner than that. At the time, federal prosecutors wanted Stevie to do hard time. They finally got their wish.
T.I. isn't just lifting the boycott on Houston's Restaurant, he's going to help the company with diversity training to ensure African-American customers never face racism there again.
Tip placed a boycott on the Houston's Restaurant chain last year after several alleged incidents of discrimination against African-American customers. The rapper's held several meetings with Houston's execs since then to address
the issues, and officially nixed the boycott last week. T.I. tells us the chain was more than willing to listen, change policies, and even wants him to take on a permanent gig with them moving forward. And no, it's not being a maître d'.
It looks like Jay-Z has finally responded to the threats George Zimmerman reportedly made toward him back in December. And he appeared to do so in the most Jay-Z way possible, with a mean subliminal shot. Yesterday (March 2),
DJ Khaled dropped his new single, "Top Off" featuring Jigga, Future and Beyonce. One of the most Conceited meme face-invoking moments on the track comes when Hov appears to send a shot at Zimmerman, the man infamously responsible for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012. "Meanwhile Georgie Porgie
sinnin' and sendin' me threats/Save your breath, you couldn't beat a flight of steps/Try that shit with a grown man/I'll kill that fuckboy with my own hand," Hov spits. Ouch. The bars seem to be a direct response to Zimmerman threatening the New York rap mogul a few months back. Jay is executive producing a documentary series on Trayvon Martin's
life. In December, Zimmerman claimed film crews made unannounced visits to his family members' homes in order to try and get interviews for the series, and the former neighborhood watchman was pissed. “I know how to handle people who fuck with me, I have since February 2012," he reportedly told The Blast, adding, “anyone who fucks with my parents will be fed to an alligator.” It sounds like Hov is willing to put the
beats on Zimmerman, but has plans on exposing him in a more diplomatic way. Jay's series, Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story is set to be released in July through the Paramount Network.
The hearse used to carry Martin Luther King Jr.'s body following his assassination is up for sale ... for the price of beachfront property.
After MLK Jr. was pronounced dead at St. Joseph's Hospital in Memphis on April 4, 1968, he was transported to the funeral home in this white 1966 Cadillac Superior Royale Coach with a black top. The hearse was used again the
day after his funeral to take his body to the airport. The current owner bought the hearse in 2007 -- after it was in storage for nearly 40 years -- and fully restored it to its original condition ... but wants to sell it now. We're told the seller
hopes it eventually ends up at the National Museum of African American History and Culture so it can be on display to the public ... but not before scoring him a huge payday. The hearse can be purchased right now for a cool $2.5 mil on Momentsintime.com.
Rick Ross is in a battle for his life, and his condition became so dicey Friday his family raced to the hospital is sheer panic.
Check out this photo ... we're told one of Rick's baby mamas and several companions poured into the white Rolls-Royce and gunned it for the hospital near Miami. They were in such a mad rush to see Rick when they arrived they didn't even shut the car doors....
Rick was hospitalized early Thursday morning after someone from his home called 911 to report a person in distress who was breathing heavily and unconscious. We've since learned Ross was placed on ECMO, a machine
which takes over heart and lung functions which also helps restore oxygen back into his blood. Our sources say the situation is dire.
Lil Pump and his crew got into a nasty car accident, and left the guy in the other ride at the scene in very bad shape ... according
to a new suit. A California man claims he was driving his Nissan Pathfinder in L.A. around 2:20 PM on October 11, 2017, when a 2006 Bentley containing the rapper, his manager and a couple other guys "violently collided" with the passenger side of his vehicle. According to the docs ... the man was pulled from his car
by Pump and his guys and left in the road -- despite being badly injured and unconscious. Instead of making sure he was okay, the man claims Pump's crew grabbed a large duffel bag from the Bentley's trunk and took off ... leaving the car behind, too. What's interesting here is a pic of Lil Pump looking pretty beat up
himself was posted online on October 13 -- 2 days after the alleged hit and run. The man's asking for damages for his injuries, pain and suffering and wants his medical bills covered. He also lists Warner Bros. Records in the suit, but as we reported ... the company no longer reps the rapper.
YoungBoy Never Broke Again was supposed to release his Until Death Call My Name album on Friday (March 2) but the project has now been
delayed until April 27. It's uncertain why the album has been pushed back but the rapper has run into legal problems and is currently being held without bail in prison in a kidnapping case. YoungBoy was originally arrested on Feb. 25 in Tallahassee, Fla. on an outstanding warrant before being extradited to Georgia.
The rapper was extradited to the state to face aggravated assault, kidnapping and weapons charges, which stem from an altercation he got into with his girlfriend, Jania, at a hotel in Waycross, Ga. Footage from the hotel shows YoungBoy slamming the woman into the ground outside of the hotel room, before
picking her up and roughly carrying her through the hallway. The rapper's girlfriend has since denied claims of domestic violence, saying the two were just horsing around. "Yeah, yeah, yeah, we good," Jania raps on a new song she released. "He was pulling me, I was pulling him/That's how we like to play (that's just us)."
YoungBoy revealed his upcoming album in January on Instagram, posting a pre-order link for the project. Although a full tracklist has yet to be revealed, the 13-song project will feature the tracks "Outside Today" and "Solar Eclipse."
4:50 PM PT -- Rick's family denies he is on ECMO. As we reported, they also denied he was hospitalized.
Rick Ross has been hooked up to a machine that's taking over the function of his heart and lungs ... according to sources connected to the music mogul. Rick is in a Miami area hospital getting treatment in the cardiac unit -- a strong sign he might have suffered a heart attack which manifested itself as respiratory issues early Thursday morning.
Rick was rushed to a hospital after a 911 caller reported he was unresponsive and "slobbing at the mouth." We're told doctors have put him on something called ECMO, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. It's a technique used
to oxygenate his blood outside of his body, before it's pumped back into his body. It's essentially a form of life support, and a clear sign of how dire the situation is.
On the heels of his fiery "Dark Knight Dummo" visual, Trippie Redd says he's worth $7 million and has been making some big purchases,
including a new house for his mom. On Wednesday (Feb. 28), the Canton, OH native posted a short snippet of him flying on a chandelier, appearing to tease a new video for his song "Wish" as it blared in the background. Trippie accompanied the video post with a heartfelt caption, where he claims to have purchased his mother a $300,000 home, "WISH I’m worth 7M now gods great please wish for what ever
you want just always make sure u meet god half way with that hard work ALBUM MODE. 1400/800 forever fuck these unicorn lookin mfs oh and P.S bought my mom a crib as well 300k not to mention that’s before I said new chain alert eternally Thankful came a long way from canton." On Tuesday (Feb. 27), Funkmaster Flex
called out a bunch of rappers he deemed as "wack" on Instagram. Trippie Redd took offense but was willing to a have constructive conversation with the radio personality commenting, "I fuck with you and maybe later you'll realize I'm way different from this un versatile ass niggas. I got goals set for this music shit." 6ix9ine and
Trippie have a longstanding feud that continues to spill over publicly on social media. Tekashi commented on DJ Akademik's Instagram post claiming the 18-year-old is lying about buying his mom a house, "Lol this nigga lie so much. He rented his mom Tonya an apartment in Ohio smh.. and his albums sold under 10,000 copies (flop)."
Forbes has released its annual wealthiest hip-hop artists list and the entrants in the top five aren't much different than last year, although there is a change at the top. While Diddy came in first in 2017 ahead of Jay-Z,
Hov now sits in first, upping his net worth from $810 million to $900 million thanks to the rising value of his Armand de Brignac champagne and D'Usse cognac. On top of that, the 4:44 rapper also has a nine-figure ownership stake in Roc Nation and Tidal. Although Jay may be in the No. 1 spot, Diddy isn't too far behind, increasing his net worth to $825 million.
The hip-hop mogul's net worth saw a slight increase of $5 million which may be due to tepid trends in the vodka and cable television world, but he is seeing growth in his ventures with DeLeon tequila and Diageo. Dr. Dre keeps his No. 3 spot but saw a big increase from $740 million to $770 million. The legendary producer could also leapfrog into first place next year when he receives a chunk of Apple stock that could be worth
over $100 million. As for the fourth and fifth spots, there's a major drop for Eminem and Drake who come in tied with $100 million. Drizzy was actually fifth on the list last year, behind Birdman with $90 million. If Jay-Z continues the kind of growth he saw from last year to this year, the Brooklyn artist could become hip-hop's first billionaire.
The rapper could also be joined by either Diddy or Dre, and like Hov said, "What's better than one billionaire? Two."
Ex-NFL player Jonathan Martin's alma mater wants to make sure he comes nowhere near the famous high school after his arrest with a shotgun.
Harvard-Westlake High School filed docs Thursday to get a restraining order against Martin. As we reported, police detained him last week after he posted a photo of a shotgun and ammo, and tagged the names of 2 former Harvard-Westlake classmates -- as well as 2 of his Dolphins teammates, including Richie Incognito.
Out of precaution, the private school campus was shut down when Martin posted the photo. Police eventually located him and detained him. He was carrying a gun with him at the time the police caught up to him.
Martin was scheduled to undergo psychiatric evaluation. It is unclear if the judge has approved the restraining order.
While he is still behind bars following his January arrest, Kodak Black enters not guilty pleas for both possession of ammunition as well as possession of marijuana. According to Local 10 WPLG, the Florida rapper pled
not guilty to the last remaining charges stemming from his arrest last month while appearing in Broward County court yesterday morning (Feb. 27). Black can be seen sporting another new hairstyle as well, having cut off his signature dreadlocks that he has been wearing over the last year or so. Yesterday (Feb. 27), Kodak's Twitter account tweeted "God's Plan" along with a prayer hands emoji in response to his
current circumstances. He will be back in court again on May 3 for his next hearing. Last week (Feb. 22), the State of Florida dropped charges against the Project Baby 2 entertainer of possession of a weapon or ammunition by a delinquent, grand theft of a firearm, and child neglect. Kodak was arrested on Jan. 18 after
the sheriff's office raided the rapper's home following an Instagram Live feed that displayed people around him smoking around his son and holding handguns. Authorities found 95 grams of marijuana in the household at the time, but Kodak's attorney has argued that it cannot be proved that the cannabis and handguns belong to the rapper.
Kodak is currently being held without bond, but we'll see if that changes in the near future. Check out Kodak Black in court below as well as his tweet response.
Desiigner is being sued by a woman who says he put her on blast, calling her a fraud after she helped his sister get into college ... JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA
has learned. Jessica Brown is pissed about the rapper's Instagram post from last August ... where he referred to her as a "fraud," and warned his followers to stay away from her and her "college scams."

Akon?'s learning the hard way that giving the cold shoulder never pays ... especially when it comes to lawsuits, cause now he's gotta cough up tons of dough.
Akon's been ordered to pay $164,786.99 to a company that leased him some space on the 66th floor of the Empire State Building for his fashion line, Aliaune Milano ... this according to legal docs obtained by.
The leasing company, GTFM, said Akon agreed in July of 2012 to pay $25k per month and did so until July of 2015 when he stopped paying rent. GTFM claims Akon's company finally left in January of 2016, owing almost
7 months of rent. GTFM had sued Akon, but the singer never responded to the lawsuit, so the judge issued a default judgment.
The "Teen Mom OG" hole created by Farrah Abraham's firing is being filled by another 'TM' alum, Mackenzie McKee ... JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA has learned.
Sources close to the production tell us the "Teen Mom 3" star, and fan fave, has officially joined the 'OG' cast, and she's already shooting scenes. As we told you, Farrah was 86'd and claimed, on her way out the door, MTV execs shamed her for doing porn. We're told 'TM' producers recently pitched Mackenzie the idea of joining 'OG.'
They were already shooting a 2-hour special with her about her mom's cancer battle. She was diagnosed earlier this year with stage 4 brain cancer. We're told Mackenzie agreed to step in for Farrah and she's been filming for more than a week now. You'll recall ... Mackenzie was part of the 'TM3' franchise before getting c
anceled after one season in 2013. She was very popular then, and fans have wanted to see her come back. While Farrah's off fighting Viacom and MTV in court ... it looks like 'Teen Mom'-sters are getting exactly what they wanted. We've reached out to MTV, but no word back yet.
NBA YoungBoy will be cooling off in jail for a while longer after his arrest for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend -- the judge just ordered him held without bail.
The 18-year-old rapper's been transferred to Georgia's Ware County Jail -- where he got a new mug shot -- and faced the judge...
YoungBoy was busted Saturday night in Tallahassee on a kidnapping warrant, related to the attack on his gf,
Jania. Cops say hotel surveillance video shows him body slamming her and then dragging her -- allegedly against her will --
back into the room. Jania has said they were just playing around, but the judge obviously ain't buying that. He's currently facing felony kidnapping and aggravated assault charges.
Apologies to Will Smith ... the 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' might be getting dethroned soon, 'cause there's a potential new heir being eyed for a TV reboot -- and he's a she ... JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA
has learned. The company that owns the rights to 'Fresh Prince' filed a few trademark applications seeking to lock down rights to "Fresh Princess" for a television program and virtually every other media platform. They're also looking to trademark the "Fresh Princess" on a bunch of merch -- including bags, backpacks,
animal collars and, of course, lots of clothing and footwear. As we reported ... the folks in control of 'FP' recently wanted trademarks for new 'Fresh Prince' toys, which fueled speculation a cartoon version of the hit '90s show was on the horizon ...
especially since Will seemed to endorse an animated take on the Banks. No word on whether Will would be involved with a female-focused reboot.
Tyler Perry is building a massive estate near his massive studio in Georgia. We're told he's been designing and building on the property for 3 years.
The mansion will be 35,000 square feet but that's not the craziest part. It sits on 1,200 acres, which Tyler will turn into an organic farm with horse and other animals. Our sources say Tyler wants his son to appreciate and
enjoy the land and the animals. The estate is near Tyler's 330-acre studio ... the one of the largest in Atlanta and the entire U.S.
He just made a deal with Viacom to produce a number of comedy and drama television episodes. Tyler spends about 9 months a year at the Atlanta studio and the remainder in L.A.
The Trayvon Martin documentary series Jay-Z has been working on now has a new trailer. Officially titled, Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story, Hov first revealed he would have a hand in the project last May.
Initially thought to be a joint venture with The Weinstein Company, the production will now go through the Paramount Network. Today (Feb. 26), we get the trailer for the series, which is short and to the point, only offering commentary on the February 2012 killing of Martin, a 17-year-old Florida teen, whose life was infamously taken by George Zimmerman, along with the lasting image of the young man rocking a hoodie.
"I don't want this to be swept under the rug," one voice says. "They say that time heals all wounds. It does not," someone else notes. According the description: "The six-part non-scripted documentary series will be the definitive look at one of the most talked-about and controversial events in the last decade that spurred the impactful worldwide 'Black Lives Matter' movement." Hov is executive producing the project along with Sybrina Fulton, Tracy Martin, Chachi Senior, Michael Gasparro, Jenner Furst,
Julia Willoughby Nason and Nick Sandow. It is co-directed by Furst abd Nason. The trailer reveals the series will air in July 2018. In related news, Hov recently traveled down to Florida to take part in the sixth annual Trayvon Martin Peace Walk & Peace Talk, put on by Trayvon's mother, Sybrina, and father, Tracy. While there, Jigga offered up some kind words about the slain teen. "It's a beautiful thing that Sybrina and Tracy are doing with their strength," Hov started. "Thank you, for being here. It's the support you
guys are showing, and the strength that Tracy, Sybrina and the family are showing. We want to make sure we stand in support and never forget. Trayvon serves as a beacon of light to all the people out here. So you guys will never have to go through the pain and the hurt that these guys went through. His name will sit alongside some of the greats who lost their life to push our culture forward."
Following his arrest over the weekend in Tallahassee, Fla., on a fugitive warrant, today (Feb. 26), YoungBoy Never Broke Again was extradited to Georgia to face aggravated assault, kidnapping and weapons charges. JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA
has confirmed with the Leon County Sheriff's Office that he has not been granted bond. The charges stem from an altercation the rapper got into with his girlfriend, Jania, at a hotel in Waycross, Ga. After his arrest, surveillance footage surfaced of the incident. The video, which was reportedly captured only hours before YoungBoy's arrest, shows the rapper slamming the woman to the ground outside of their room.
He then picks her up and roughly carries her about the hallway. People who heard the commotion called the police, but by the time they arrived, YoungBoy and his girl had fled. Following the incident, blood was found in the hotel room. The woman has denied NBA was trying to physically harm her, but at this point, it looks like the authorities will have to settle the issue. If he has to face legal consequences,
this would be a major setback for the bubbling rapper, born Kentrell Gaulden. The 19-year-old is only months removed from a prison bid. He was released from prison last May after pleading out on an attempted murder case. In that incident, NBA admitted to shooting a firearm on Baton Rouge's Kentucky Street on Nov. 2, 2016.
The shooting was believed to be in retaliation from the murder of Keondrae Ricks, who was killed on a nearby street earlier that day.
Kim Kardashian's revealing her baby girl's face for the first time ... and the Kardashian
genes are STRONG with this one. Kim posted the shot of Chicago West on Monday, and, in true family tradition, she's rocking a face filter for mom's IG story. The little girl is truly the spitting image of Kim ... especially in the eyes.
Chi, who was born on Jan. 15, has only been seen a couple of times before -- once swaddled in Aunt Kylie's arms, and another time in her stroller -- but
this is the first time we're really getting to see her. Say what ya want about Kanye West and Kim ... but this couple does NOT strike out when it comes to making good-looking kids.
FedEx will not follow in the footsteps of dozens of other corporations who have chosen to cut ties with the NRA.
The shipping company has been pressured by thousands to stop giving discounted rates to members of the NRA ... with many people threatening to stop using the company altogether. FedEx execs just issued a statement, saying, "FedEx is a common carrier under Federal law and therefore does not and will
not deny service or discriminate against any legal entity regardless of their policy positions or political views." The statement continues, "FedEx has never set or changed its rates for any of our millions of customers around
the world in response to their politics, beliefs or positions on issues." While it will not end NRA discounts, the company does take a stance on assault rifles, saying, "FedEx opposes assault rifles being in the hands of civilians."
Better late than never. Three years after its release, Vince Staples' "Norf Norf" track has reached gold status.
The Clams Casino-produced song was officially certified by the RIAA on Feb. 1. The banger was featured on Vince's 2015 album, Summertime '06.
