Martin Shkreli wants to bail out Bobby Shmurda and pay his defense. The total bill can be as high as 4 million dollars.
I am glad that he owned up and took responsibility concerning their present indictment and incarceration and took the onus off of Epic Records to bail them out. Over the last year we have heard people including 50 Cent, and Dr. Boyce Watkins call on LA Reid to bail out Bobby Shmurda. LA Reid on a recent Rap Radar podcast explained why he could not bail out Bobby and he was pretty much slammed after the fact. The audio of his recent interview with Revolt TV is kinda muddy so I am posting the transcript below:

“It’s a waiting process right now,” Rowdy said, “My spirits are good, I ain’t letting nothing drag me down or what God has planned for me. It’s all in God’s hands.”
Maintaining the music behind bars, he goes on to add, “Only update I got right now, is that I’m about to drop a mixtape since I know the streets have been waiting. Its’ called Shmoney Keeps Calling, and even though I’m locked out that shit keeps calling me.”
And as far as Epic’s defense, he commented, “I didn’t expect Epic to get us out, because at the end of the day we’re not the best of friends, they just signed us to their company. They don’t feel the pain that my family and friends feel, but on the business side, they did invest in us. They don’t really owe us nothing.”
Terrible news just struck the Duck Down Family and rap world in general.
According to reports from family and friends, rapper Sean Price died suddenly this morning in his sleep at his home in Brooklyn. Price was 43 years old.
The cause of death is not known at this time, however an update will be made following the release of an autopsy report.
Price entered the rap game under the moniker “Ruck” along with his partner Rock as the group Heltah Skeltah, the famed duo from the Brooklyn Hip Hop collective Boot Camp Clik. In the past decade, Price revamped his career as a solo artist using his given name of Sean Price, releasing several projects including his latest, Mic Tyson, which arguably one of the best albums of 2013. via THE SOURCE

This is hardbody.
If there was ever a time that the People in communities across the U.S. needed to come together, it’s now. While images and videos of the Baltimore protesters’ exemplary model of unity continue to pour in by the hour, it is unfortunate that that spirit of solidarity has not spread throughout the rest of the country and penetrated the hearts of others. I truly wonder what the motive could have possibly been to lead these men to opening fire on a group of 300 people that were just leaving a funeral service. Many of whom were with their loved ones and simply wanted to pay respects to someone who had passed. Little did some of them know, they would have to start making plans to attend two more. It’s even more saddening to hear that one of the men that died in this senseless act of violence was killed in front of his son. For what? When will this vicious cycle end? Let this be a reminder that although the solidarity shown in places like Ferguson and Baltimore is a step in the right direction, it is something that must not be fleeting. We have to be as unrelenting in our struggle for unity amongst the People as the opposing forces are in their efforts to keep us divided.
I offer my condolences to all those affected by this tragedy.
Six people were shot — two fatally — Monday night during a drive-by shooting outside a Brooklyn church where funeral services were being held, police sources and witnesses said.
More than 300 people were leaving the service at Emmanuel Church of God on Flatbush Ave. near Foster Ave. at about 8:30 p.m. when a gunman fired up to 15 shots into the crowd from a silver SUV.
“It sounded like a war … boom, boom, boom,” said witness Carlo Stamand, 60, who owns the nearby Cafe Creole restaurant. “I ran. I went inside my business. After that, the police came.
Witness Angela Diggs, 50, was worshiping at another church nearby when the congregants’ prayers were drowned out by gunfire.
“We didn’t come out,” she said. “We just continued praying for whatever was happening out there. Praying that nobody died.”
Diggs’ prayers weren’t answered.
They need to drop the whole tape already but he has been hitting on all cylinders with these.
One of the best to ever do it.

The ass waxer, the drug money stasher
Who is advising Bill? Or has Bill just lost his mind along with the support of the mainstream media? Who told him to dress in some pajamas and speak on a rotary phone to his fans? I am lost.

Wise words from Mr. Shakur.
Hip Hop superstar Rick Ross sits down with Zack O’ Malley Greenburg in Wingstop in Brooklyn, to discuss his perceived low placement on their hugely popular Hip Hop Cash Kings list. Ross kinda dodges the direct questions and if he really wants to be in the top five with Dr. Dre, Jay Z, Diddy, and 50 Cent he will need to do much bigger tours and not a paltry 18 shows last year.

Brooklyn’s Barclays Center is going green. Developer Forest City Ratner Cos. is planning to cover the arena’s blue and white roof with 130,000 square feet of “small plants and a soil-like cover,” according to The Wall Street Journal.
The reasons for the greenification are two-fold: it will make the view for the nearby Atlantic Yards residential tower a whole lot nicer, and it will help muffle loud noise from concerts
Construction on the first tower of Atlantic Yards’ 6,400-apartment complex has already started, and Forest City is banking on the view of the new, aesthetic roof as a selling point. Three of the 15 residential buildings will be right next to the Brooklyn venue.
On yesterday, the NY Daily News featured the men of We Make Us Better, a campaign started in Bed-Stuy to actively support, unite and empower the Black community.

After a spate of recent muggings and robberies, a group of 20 Bedford-Stuyvesant men started escorting people home as they got off the train and are walking through the neighborhood reaching out to young men.
“We’re about encouraging males to be involved, because you don’t see men in their 20s, 30s and 40s involved in the community anymore, so we’re trying to bridge that gap.”
Once a week – on random evenings – the men walk subway riders home from the Utica Ave. train station. They also sponsored a neighborhood outreach walk earlier this month, stopping to talk to young men hanging out on the corners.
Love his energy today, but is this really gonna change anything tomorrow.
