Gunshots were fired at rapper Lil Wayne’s tour bus during a stop in Atlanta early Sunday morning. Witnesses told police that there were two white suspect automobiles involved, “possibly a Corvette-style vehicle and an SUV,” says a police spokesperson. Officers were called to the Mandarin Oriental hotel at around 3:30 a.m. Sunday and found two tour buses had been shot multiple times after traveling on Atlanta highway I-285.
The tour buses pulled into a hotel after the shooting that occurred on the highway minutes after leaving the nightclub called Compound where the rap artist performed Saturday night.
TMZ reported Weezy and a few other Young Money execs and artists, including Lil Twist and Super Hood, were on board at least one of the buses at the time of the shooting.

“Wayne, born Dewayne Michael Carter, Jr., is 32 years old. He’s the father of four children — one daughter by his high school sweetheart and ex-wife Antonio “Toya” Carter, and three sons that were born in the same year by singer/songwriter Nivea Hamilton, actress Lauren London, and radio broadcaster Sarah Vivan.” From Wikipedia
Last month, police were called to the rapper’s Miami mansion over reports that four people had been shot. The incident was later reported to be a hoax.

Police said Friday that Kemp was found floating at a beach in Montego Bay on Thursday morning. Police said Kemp arrived in Jamaica on a cruise ship. Reach Media Inc. said Kemp had been scheduled to be on a Caribbean cruise this week. Kemp was nominated in 1989 for a Grammy Award for “Just Got Paid” in a category that included Bobby Brown and Luther Vandross. The song was a No. 1 hit on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart.
Rest in peace Johnny.
Former Jive Records executive Mickey “Memphitz” Wright Jr. lost his defamation case against the owners of VH1, producers of the network’s hit show “Love Hip Hop Atlanta” and his ex after his former girlfriend R & B singer Kimberly Michelle Pate (who was known on the show as K. Michelle) accused him of physical abuse and embezzlement on the show.
In the lawsuit filed Memphitz asked for $15 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages.
In depositions he acknowledged he got into a physical altercation with K Michelle in a Memphis hotel altercation in 2009 and had spent money from Jive Record’s budget for jewelry, not to help her career, and had sent a text message threatening to kill K. Michelle’s son. (Dayum son! Really?!)
He later tried to backtrack from say he didn’t. The judge wasn’t having any of that.

Michelle, who says she was beat by her ex -boyfriend Memphitz, had gone on a Twitter rant about his wife Toya Wright. Toya denies the allegations made against Memphitz. Despite the bitter feud between the ladies, K. Michelle’s graphic PSA is an attempt to help bring more awareness to the domestic abuse epidemic this country is in today.
While the abuse came out in 2012 and the lawsuit filed right after, the decision ended this past Friday, three years later. People are still talking about it though.
“We were having a normal argument and it would get more and more intense. We were fighting about a performance,” she says. “He ‘s the boss, I’m already big-mouthed and it just got ‘OK. I’m tired of this b**ch.” Things escalated from there. “I was smothered with a towel, ya hit me in my head with a [water] bottle I was bruised up.” It was nothing small, I was bruised up, I was bleeding. I was climbing crawling to get out the door.”
Hip-hop artist “Nelly” is facing felony drugs charges after he was arrested by Tennessee State Troopers Saturday morning in Putnam County.
Rapper Cornell Haynes, 40, commonly known by his stage name “Nelly” has been charged with felony drug possession after his bus was stopped for not having the correct ID stickers in Tennessee. He was with Brian Jones who was also arrested for having a handgun.
Nelly and Jones were taken to the Putnam County Jail. The Putnam County Sheriff’s office says Nelly’s bond amount was $10,000. They have already made bond.
The troopers discovered in the sleeper area a plastic bag that contained five colored crystal-type rocks that tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.
Further investigation revealed approximately 100 small Ziploc bags that are commonly associated with the sale of narcotics and numerous handguns, including a gold-plated 50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, a 45-caliber Tarus pistol, and a 500 magnum Smith and Wesson.

A Lex Luger production Dog Food is the latest from Rick Ross.
The duo, first meeting up for Teflon Don‘s strongest one-two punch (“B.M.F.“), have since done “Off The Boat” and the Hood Billionaire title track together, and now they return for one called “Dog Food.”
For a while I thought the first two seasons were a crazy roller coaster of a dream. An amazing fluke for Netflix who knocked it out of the park with characters like Crazy Eyes and Tasty. Then I saw it! The new trailer for Season Three, set to come out June 12th.
OITNB is definitely off the chain and had people comparing it to the female version of Oz from back in the day (seriously like twenty five years ago!) Prisoner Cell Block H. (Prisoner is a 1980’s Australian soap opera that is set in the Wentworth Detention Centre, a fictional women’s prison. In the United States and United Kingdom it was billed as Prisoner: Cell Block H, and in Canada as Caged Women.)
BTW, if you want something to watch while you wait for OITNB to come on in June then you can watch Wentworth on Netflix. A drama, Wentworth (which is based on the 1980s Australian show Prisoner I spoke of above) is pretty good and with plenty of accents.
So if you’ve binge watched Oz and The Wire and you’re waiting around until Orange Is The New Black Comes Back try these on for size. Seeing the cultural differences is a learning experience in itself. Not to worry though, Crazy Eyes will be back soon enough!
