New Photo Of Tekashi 6ix9ine Surfaces Online; House Arrest Denied

Incarcerated and hated rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine has managed to remain relevant on the outside, despite the fact that his request to commute his sentence was denied. Maybe that explains the look on his face.

Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, is finishing a 24-month federal sentence for his role in a racketeering conspiracy with the Brooklyn-based Nine Trey Blood gang. An image of the troubled rapper and his girlfriend surfaced online, showing the “Get The Strap:” emcee sporting a white prison-issued fit and a serious mug for the cameras.

Last week, Tekashi’s lawyer Lance Lazzaro filed documents to have the disgraced rapper commute the rest of his sentence to home confinement due to security concerns, with the judge citing that Tekashi must “reflect the seriousness of his crimes.”

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Support The Community, Rents Out Movie Theater for People to See ‘Just Mercy’ for Free

With all of the high profile attention that Kanye and Kim get for silly things when they reach back to communities (especially those that they seemingly have no contact with), you have to take pause and congratulate them on their philanthropic efforts.

Thus we stop and salute them for paying for hundreds to see the social justice movie about Bryan Stevenson’s life, Just Mercy.

According to Koco ABC 5 News, Kimye did a theater buy out in Oklahoma City with a group called “Represent Justice.” OKC will not be the only city that they will sponsor movie visits to. They will also do screenings in Washington DC, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, and Miami.

There is a strong development in both of these Hip-Hop darlings lives that may have compelled their support: Kanye has recently converted to Christianity and according to the prophet Micah, he most do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with his God, and Kim has invested a sizable amount of energy in advocating for prisoners and probably inspired by Stevenson and his work.

Academy Voting Member Says Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Hustlers’ is ‘Not an Oscar Movie’

Social media was in a frenzy after the Academy announced the Oscars nominations last week. Users claimed a handful of actors were snubbed including Adam Sandler, Lupita Nyong’o, Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Lopez.

We may not know why the actors were excluded from this year’s award ceremony, but a voting member of the Academy didn’t hold back on why Lopez was “snubbed.”

“I would have been shocked if she did get it,” Terry Moore said. “First of all, Hustlers is not an ‘Oscar movie. It’s a little too rough around the edges, and I’m assuming some other people in the acting category didn’t see it. Florence Pugh seems to have gotten the J.Lo spot — maybe because Little Women is a [prestigious] movie and she’s a bright, new star. Actors tend to think of Jennifer Lopez as a phenomenon more than an actress, per se. [It’s like last year, when] Lady Gaga lost the Oscar to Olivia Colman — a real actor’s actor.”

Moore did applaud Sandler’s Uncut Gems performance but she added, “He does cheesy Netflix comedies that are really dumb… Unfortunately, actors become brands. Sandler’s brand doesn’t scream ‘Oscar,’ but Leo DiCaprio’s and Jonathan Pryce’s do… If Adam Sandler has another great film, he’ll be nominated. If Eddie Murphy has another great film, he’ll be nominated.”

It’s important to note that Moore is 91-years-old so Hustlers may not be her cup of tea. She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1952 and was once married to Howard Hughes.

Aaron Hernandez’s Lawyer Slams Documentary: ‘These Producers Lied Directly to My Face’

Netflix’s documentary exploring the life and conviction of Aaron Hernandez has been the talk of the weekend. The new series, Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez, examined the ex NFL star’s trial and revealed that he suffered from CTE, and allegedly had sexual relations with men.

After its premiere, Hernandez’s lawyer, Jose Baez, slammed the three-part docu-series. “I don’t give a damn about what some lame ass documentary has to say about Aaron,” Baez wrote on Instagram,. “I knew him, they did not and while he was far from perfect, they are not even close to the truth. People have no idea how documentaries are made, the truth is usually found on the cutting room floor. These producers lied directly to my face, so I don’t expect their money making scheme to be much better.”

In April 2017 Aaron Hernandez was serving a life sentence for the murder of his friend, Odin Lloyd when he was found hanging from his cell. He apparently committed suicide five days after he was acquitted for the double homicide, in an attempt to leave his fiance and daughter financially set.

Aside from all the tea that was spilled, it’s important to note that his brains showed severe signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy. This is a common disease found in football players caused by head trauma. The symptoms of this condition include mood swings and depression, and it was clear that Hernandez was unhappy at a point despite having all of his success.

What are your thoughts on the doc?

Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne Get Super Bossy with Hilarious Comedy about Friendship and Girl Power

It would seem that every time that Tiffany Haddish appears on the stage, you are sure to bust a gut laughing. You might not think the same about Rose Byrne but as a wing woman to Haddish, she is equally as funny. In their new film Like A Boss, the duo finds chemistry that is hard to come by and few people can say they have been able to achieve.

Just check out this trailer:

You will not be able to stop laughing from the start of the film to the end.

And while Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne are a not likely pairing but together they are a cross between Lucille & Ethrel and Richard Pryor & Gene Wilder.

The movie allowed for Haddish to show a refreshing side of her style of comedy. It is about two long-time friends who decided to start a cosmetic business. Rose Byrne who held her weight against the acclaimed funny woman, playing the straight-laced administrator to Haddish’s uber care-free creative.

The movie takes you on a journey to see what happens when money, friendship, and loyalty comes in to play. Is Girl power all you need? Or… do you need a level of allegiance and sisterhood.

Jim Jones Teases Dipset Movie Amid Juelz Santana’s Release

Dipset has definitely defined an era in Hip Hop, particularly on the East Coast. Like any other music group, they’ve had their issues but nevertheless, Cam’Ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and Freeky Zeekey left their imprint in music history.

Speaking with Nick Cannon, Jones revealed that when Juelz Santana is released they might work on an album and a film. “The Diplomat movie might be in the works when [Juelz] comes out. That’s probably more of our focus than anything,” he said. “People know we make music and there’s always a nostalgic value when we pop out and do music. But I do believe we got a story that needs to be seen in hip-hop like no other. I know people have a lot of their own glory story, but we really have an action flick that needs to be told. I swear to God.”

Juelz’s wife and baby’s mother, Kimbella, announced that he will be home this year. “Summer 2020 my HUSBAND will be home,” she wrote along with a new picture of Juelz. “We did our longest leg in the feds now we’re on our shortest leg count down til he comes, the kids and I are so looking forward to it!.”

[WATCH] ‘Charm City Kings’ Trailer Starring Meek Mill

Meek Mill is set to make his feature film debut in the upcoming bike film Charm City Kings this year.

The film follows a 14-year old boy played by, Jahi Di’Allo Winston, who is embraced by a dirt biker, played by the Philly rapper. Will Catlett, Teyonah Parris, Donielle Tremaine Hansley, and Kezii Curtis are all apart of the cast.

Angel Manuel Soto will helm the film, alongside Moonlight director, Barry Jenkins, who served as a co-writer. Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith are the executive producers, as per Pitchfork.

In recent Meek Mill news, the wrongful death lawsuit case that was filed against him in 2017 was dismissed. Jaquan Graves was fatally shot at the rapper’s Connecticut 2016 show.

Meek was hit with a separate lawsuit from Travis Ward’s estate, who was also killed during the shooting. Both estates proposed to settle for $3 million but that’s not happening.

Dame Dash Sues WeTV For Not Keeping His Son Sober On ‘Growing Up Hip Hop’

Former Roc-A-Fella executive claims that WeTV purposely kept his son inebriated against his will in order to boost their ratings on their popular reality show Growing Up Hip Hop.

According to a lawsuit obtained exclusively by TMZ, Damon Dash Sr. alleges that his son, Damon “Boogie” Dash Jr., was required to drink alcohol during his appearance on the show to increase viewership, even though they gave a verbal agreement that they’s keep the younger Dash sober.

Dash says that his family suffered “emotional distress” due to Boogie’s public drunkenness on the show, according to the suit.

Ex Philly Cop Files Defamation Lawsuit Against Meek Mill, JAY-Z Over ‘Free Meek’ Documentary

Meek Mill had an amazing year in 2019. Although he didn’t release much music, he made huge strides in prison reform and his personal case.

He was finally off of probation after getting a new judge and trial for his decade old case.The Philly emcee released the Free Meek project through Amazon documenting his struggles with the prison system.

But everyone didn’t view this moment as a W. Former Philadelphia police officer, Saqueta Williams, appeared in the doc on the Philly’s “Do Not Call” list. The list was compiled of 60 crooked cops who the District Attorney avoids calling due to their tainted credibility.

The list was described as unofficial and “names more than 60 cops whom the district attorney’s office avoids summoning to testify in court, due to credibility issues,” the lawsuit states. Williams argues that the inclusion of her name and photo is defamation and she wants money for the damages.

Williams was arrested for firing her gun during an off-duty altercation but was later acquitted. “It lends the impression to the ordinary person that she was a corrupt police officer. That she had lied or perjured herself, which is not true,” said Williams’ lawyer, Steven F. Marino. “That’s the foundation of the suit.”

Williams is the only officer on the list who is taking legal action against Meek Mill, JAY-Z, and Wenner Media.
