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

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