Five people were arrested during the filming of a video featuring rap stars French Montana, Busta Rhymes and Ja Rule in Brooklyn, officials said Saturday.
Three men and two women — including the set security guard — were facing weapons and drug charges after plainclothes cops infiltrated the shoot behind a Fulton St. Bravo Supermarket in East New York at about 6:15 p.m. and spotted the illegal hardware,
Cocaine, marijuana and molly were also discovered, officials said.
Those arrested included 35-year-old security guard Frank Bartlett, who had a defaced firearm in his waistband, 32-year-old Ronald James, who was seen passing a Derringer pistol to his girlfriend, Ebonee Eastmond, 27 — who was also arrested — and Edward Elkins, who had a semiautomatic pistol in a shopping bag between his feet, cops said.

At this point, I just want to know what it would take for a cop to found guilty of ANY violence-related charge in a court of law. Not only was Officer Michael Brelo acquitted of manslaughter, but also the lesser charge of felonious assault. Do you think he was he justified in his actions?
Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced today that all six officers being charged for the death of Freddie Gray have been indicted by a Grand Jury. They are set to be arraigned on July 2. More to come as the story develops.

My name is Gobi M. Rahimi and I had the honor of directing and producing Tupac Shakur’s music videos during his time at Death Row Records.
A few weeks before Pac was shot, I wrote the letter that Tupac signed, firing Suge Knight and his lawyer David Kenner. After that, the tension between Tupac and his label soared to new heights. Continue reading →
There’s no way to sugar coat this: mass-produced dairy products are simply a mucus-causing, disease-fueling cocktail marketed as the would-be saviors to fight osteoporosis. For many of us, almond milk seems like the perfect replacement.
It turns out it may not be the case, at least considering the way commercial almond milks are being made. Continue reading →

The NBA should have a contest whereas one dunker wins a chance to compete against the NBA’s best. It would bring some life back into the contest. With that being said never heard of this guy aptly named Jordan (Kilganon) or his previous dunks but this caught my eye and is post worthy. Oh yeah he is only 6′ 1.

Well…if this is true, he better keep all racist and antagonistic remarks about the violence in urban communities to himself from now on. This is the definition of hypocrisy.
According to a source familiar with the facts of the case, a court-appointed forensic examiner testified at a closed hearing that O’Reilly’s daughter claimed to have witnessed her father dragging McPhilmy down a staircase by her neck, apparently unaware that the daughter was watching. The precise date of the alleged incident is unclear, but appears to have occurred before the couple separated in 2010. The same source indicated that the daughter, who is 16 years old, told the forensic examiner about the incident within the past year.
The apparent domestic violence assault would be the latest in a series of revelations about O’Reilly’s disturbing treatment of his family members, and his ex-wife in particular.
This question was posed in the comments on Shade Room. Is Meek Mill a hypocrite for his dissociation with the same hood that he still raps about and made him famous and rich? The death of Chinx Drugz is another tragic death in the world of rap music that never seems to end. #BlacklivesMatter
How did he forget to add the rash of police shootings of unarmed black men and women (and the US becoming a certified police state) to his list of things more important than the Kardashians? Maybe I have my priorities wrong. Then again I live in the real world.
Kardashians app: Young app developer James Shamsi has created an AdBlock version of the Kardashians, called KardBlock. How does it work? Is this real? The Times’s Christy Khoshaba has the details.
The Game stopped by Ferguson, MO yesterday to visit Michael Brown’s memorial and meet with his family. That wasn’t the extent of his stay, however.
The Compton native was also in a giving mood and took it upon himself to buy 100 Happy Meals, which he also helped cook and serve to the local youth as part of his Robin Hood Project. You can check out the rest of the pics and videos here. Salute to Game for stepping up and spreading some love.
The Dark Skin ActivistRashida Strober slams Power 105.1 radio jock Charlemagne for his idiotic oxymoronic statements that ‘white nubian’ queens were in. This is all not surprising coming from a man who recently bleached his skin after being teased mercilessly by the public at large for dark spots on his face. Colorism is a serious issue in the black community and I commend Rashida for having the cojones to tackle this issue head on.

My brothers and sisters in Jamaica are in crisis with the bleaching of their skin as evidenced by this woman in this video. Outside of the blatant self hate they have for their beautiful melanated skin, the health complications down the line will be severe at best. I cannot wait for the day this practice is finally stomped out in the Caribbean and in parts of Africa. To check out the original of this practice check out the movie Setting The Tone after the cut..
Hip-hop rapper Tiny Doo’s real name is Brandon Duncan, and he ended up in jail for eight months awaiting trial on charges he conspired to commit a series of gang related shootings around San Diego, Calif. Prosecutors at the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office didn’t say he shot the gun or drove the getaway car in these shootings; Instead they said he profited from the shootings through his gangster rap album, “No Safety.”
“There was no way in the world that these people were going to be able to to charge me with shootings based on what I rap about in my music,” says Duncan.
The District Attorney’s Office charged Duncan under 182.5 of the California Penal Code which states that anyone “who willfully promotes, furthers, assists, or benefits” from felonious criminal conduct by a gang is guilty of conspiracy to commit that felony. Continue reading →
