Pop Smoke Busts Out Racks + Racks: “N****s Said I Could’t Pay For My Bail”

Pop Smoke Video

Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke isn’t paying any mind to the rumors. The hip-hop newcomer has addressed his recent headline-generating arrest and bail.

Big Facts: On Wednesday, Pop hit up Instagram and shared a slideshow of pics holding onto stacks of cash.

High-Key Details: Recent reports claimed Pop’s mom had to put up her house to pay for his bail.

Now reports have surfaced noting the rapper pleaded not guilty during a hearing, and that his next court date will be taking place on February 3. Along with that, it was reported that Pop Smoke’s release was secured by his mom, who put up her house in order to ensure the release of her son. (VLAD TV)

Wait, There’s More: A few days ago, details surfaced on Pop’s New York arrest on a felony charge.

In court documents obtained by Complex, Pop Smoke is listed as being charged with Interstate Transportation of Stolen Motor Vehicle. He’s alleged to have “knowingly and intentionally” transported the vehicle “on or about and between” Nov. 5 and Dec. 3 of last year. A separate report from TMZ cites law enforcement sources as claiming that Pop Smoke first met the car’s owner at a recording studio in Los Angeles, at which point a “verbal agreement” regarding use of the car in a video was established. The car was allegedly agreed to be returned the following day, though the report states that didn’t happen, at which point the car was called in as stolen. (Complex)

Before You Go: Recently, Brooklyn rapper Casanova 2x shared his support for Smoke’s jail release.

DJ Khaled and Drake are up to something.

Just a day after he and his wife welcomed their second son, the We the Best mogul got right back to work. He hopped a plane to Toronto to link up with the 6 God at his new 35,000-square-foot Toronto mansion.

“WHEN GREATS CONNECT AND REAL FRIENDS/BROTHERS CONNECT . It’s always GREAT energy !” Khaled wrote on Instagram.

He also shared video of them playing basketball on Drake’s OVO court. “It was a tie,” he said.

During his 24 hours in Toronto, they also managed to find time to hit the studio. “It’s amazing what you can get done in 24 hours. I can’t wait to share these moments and real life Story wit you,” said Khaled before adding “DECADE SECURED” in a subsequent post.

Roc Nation’s Lenny S shared another photo of them in the studio along with more details about their recording sessions. “New Year. New Album,” he said. “The only problem with this session is deciding what monster to leave with!!! Stay Tuned!!!!!!

RiFF RAFF Comes Up W/ Big Win In Publicized $12 Million Sexual Assault Case

RiFF RAFF Bathroom Selfie

Texas hip-hop artist RiFF RAFF can exhale a huge sigh of relief. The rap veteran has reportedly had a civil sexual assault case from 2014 dropped with prejudice.

Big Facts: According to reports, the case has finally faded to black after looming over his head for over 5 years.

RiFF RAFF had never been arrested or charged with any such offense by the police. The Plaintiff’s civil suit, has now been dropped with prejudice. Having this dark cloud, which has hung over him for the last 5 years, dissipate, RiFF RAFF is ready to take his career to the next level and cement his name as one of the most exciting and innovative entertainers of modern times.

High-Key Details: Raff reportedly relied on heavy duty legal support to help put the case away.

RiFF RAFF and Jody Highroller Entertainment Inc. wishes to thank the combined legal team of Robert Garson of GS2Law, out of New York City, Chris Rusby of Rusby Law and Brent Ryman of Erickson, Thorpe & Swainston, both out of Reno, Nevada. Together, they have demonstrated the unwavering support and determination in making sure that the truth would prevail and reassured RIFF RAFF. Their counsel provided immense assurance during this difficult time. Most importantly RIFF RAFF wants to thank his fans for standing by him and your support has been incredibly important and will never be forgotten.

Wait, There’s More: In 2018, buzz developed about RiFF having to stand trial in May 2019 over the case.

RiFF RAFF is due to stand trial next year in a sexual assault case stemming from a 2014 incident at a Nevada brothel, court documents reviewed by Pitchfork have revealed. The civil case, which will come before a Washoe County, Nevada jury on May 28, 2019, was filed on October 23, 2014 and has not previously been reported publicly. (Pitchfork)

Before You Go: In June 2018, reports emerged about RiFF getting accused of sexually assaulting an Australian teenager.

In June, RiFF RAFF (née Horst Christian Simco) was accused of raping a 19-year-old Australian woman in 2013. The rapper soon saw his planned tour of Australia and New Zealand canceled, as well as a second allegation of sexual assault from a woman who was 17 at the time of the alleged incident. RiFF RAFF denied the allegations via a weird, since-deleted video, which saw him accompanied by an entertainment lawyer and a film director who claimed she was making a movie about the incident called “Trial By Media”.

Juice WRLD Died From Accidental Overdose

Juice WRLD’s cause of death has been revealed.

The Cook County Medical Examiner says the 21-year-old rapper, whose legal name was Jarad Anthony Higgins, died from an accidental overdose after toxic levels of oxycodone and codeine were found in his system.

“Higgins died as a result of oxycodone and codeine toxicity,” tweeted the Cook County Medical Examiner. “The manner of death is accident.”

Juice WRLD died last month after suffering a seizure and going into cardiac arrest after landing at Chicago’s Midway Airport. According to TMZ, he swallowed several Percocet pills in an attempt to hide them from the feds.

The feds seized 70 pounds of weed in vacuum-sealed bags that were stashed inside suitcases in the private jet, along with three registered guns. Two of Juice’s associates were arrested for gun possession.

Juice WRLD was open about his struggles with drug addiction. Last year, he tweeted that he was done with codeine. “Bae I’m sorry I be tweaking, you’ve put up with more than ppl know I know I be scaring you, fuck Codeine I’m done,” he told his girlfriend Ally Lotti. “I love you and im letting it be known publicly that ain’t shit fucking up the real love I found. Learn from this everyone. Addiction kills all but you can overcome.”

His music lives on. Last week, Eminem released his new album Music To Be Murdered By featuring a collaboration with Juice WRLD called “Godzilla.”

Roddy Ricch Debuts ‘Boom Boom Room’ Video

Ahead of his Grammy performance this weekend, Roddy Ricch takes a trip to the “Boom Boom Room” in the latest video from his chart-topping album Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial.

The Christian Breslaur-directed clip follows his journey inside the “Boom Boom Room” in the moments after a car crash. The Compton rapper is seen emerging from the wreck in the opening scene before spotting a sexy lady who leads him into the “Boom Boom Room” where he is surrounded by exotic women and whips. He grabs a stack of cash and makes it rain as dancers work the pole under black lights. But he soon realizes it was all a dream.

Ricch will perform a tribute to Nipsey Hussle alongside YG, Meek Mill, DJ Khaled, John Legend, and Kirk Franklin at the Grammys on Sunday. He is nominated for three awards including Best Rap Performance (“Racks in the Middle”), Best Rap Song (“Racks in the Middle”), and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (“Ballin’”).

“Boom Boom Room” is the latest visual from Roddy’s debut Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, which topped the charts and is currently No. 2 on the Billboard 200. His single “The Box” also became his first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Orlando Brown Claims Nick Cannon Gave Him Oral Sex

Nick Cannon is facing a strange accusation.

Former “That’s So Raven” actor Orlando Brown claims that the “Wild ‘N Out” star gave him oral sex. In a video posted online (via Complex), Brown shared the bizarre story.

“You want me to let everybody know? Okay, fine. Nick, I let you suck my dick,” said Brown. “I let Nick suck my dick. And I liked it. It was okay, fine. Nick, you sucked my dick. But everybody knows you did it as a female. But Nick you sucked my dick.”

He laughed while adding, “Nick been sucking dick.”

There’s no evidence to support his claim. Both Brown and Cannon were former child stars on Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel. Brown has a history of odd behavior. He previously claimed that he had a sexual relationship with his “That’s So Raven” co-star Raven-Symoné. He has also been arrested on drug charges. He opened up about his battles with mental health and drug and alcohol addiction in a 2018 interview with Dr. Phil.

Nick has not addressed his comments, but the accusation follows his feud with Eminem. On his diss track “The Invitation,” he accuses Em of engaging in oral sex with his chauffeur. “I heard your chauffeur got a video of you sucking a cock / You paid him off, then laid him off, now who really the op?” he raps. Eminem later denied the claim.

UPDATE: Nick Cannon has addressed Orlando Brown’s claims. At first he laughed it off, but then decided that it was something that deserved serious attention.

“But this is another crucial example of when we allow our young artists to be prematurely exposed by this demonic business and left out to fend for themselves,” he wrote. “We need better support systems for our youth and take care of our own. I watched various of this young brothers videos and all I see is a cry out for help.”

He instead wants to “embrace him” and get him the help he needs. “This actually hurts my heart to see that we have allowed Orlando, along with various other young gifted performers we grew up loving, to just dwindle away after these corporations made their billions off of them,” added Nick. “Now due to substance abuse and diagnosed psychiatric disorders our loved ones are now aimlessly begging for the attention they were once given , instead of the help they actually need.”

He ended by calling out the media for their role. “The most irresponsible parties involved in all of this is our media, specifically the ‘culturally conscious’. For us to continue to post slander and tear one another down for click bait to make these white supremacy propagated platforms more money is asinine and deplorable. These cannibalistic tactics only destroy ‘Us’.”

When I first saw this I thought it was fucking hilarious!!!! 🤣🍆💦😂😂😂 But then after putting a little cognitive effort and analytical thought to the situation,I figured what a great opportunity for a “teachable moment”! First off let me say I am praying for the young brother Orlando even though I don’t really know him personally, I have always loved and enjoyed his talent and have been a fan of his past work. He was fucking brilliant in Major Payne, and had us all laughing on “Thats So Raven”. But this is another crucial example of when we allow our young artists to be prematurely exposed by this demonic business and left out to fend for themselves. We need better support systems for our youth and take care of our own. I watched various of this young brothers videos and all I see is a cry out for help. So I don’t know if there are any real leaders or solid individuals in this young man’s life but let’s embrace him and tighten him up so he doesn’t become another lost victim to these hollywood circumstances. I indeed believe this brother has the God given talent to be on Wildnout but this definitely ain’t the way to audition, this actually hurts my heart to see that we have allowed Orlando, along with various other young gifted performers we grew up loving, to just dwindle away after these corporations made their billions off of them. Now due to substance abuse and diagnosed psychiatric disorders our loved ones are now aimlessly begging for the attention they were once given , instead of the help they actually need. All while we sit back and just laugh… The most irresponsible parties involved in all of this is our media, specifically the “culturally conscious”. For us to continue to post slander and tear one another down for click bait to make these white supremacy propagated platforms more money is asinine and deplorable. These cannibalistic tactics only destroy “Us”. Really, in post like this, who wins??? We might chuckle, joke, pass the gossip on through our low frequency vibrations but does it truly make you feel good??? Especially knowing that there are higher powers looking down at you. So I hold @iheartradio @complex @worldstar accountable!…

EXPLOSION! Right Before Their Big Weekend, Ex-CEO of the GRAMMYS Drops Major Bombs about Rape, Corrupt Voting Practices and How Dirty They Are Doing Black People

Days before The Grammys are set to air, the former CEO of The Recording Academy is fired and she is not going down with a fight or dropping a few major bombs.

Deborah Dugan was only the CEO of the Recording Academy for a short time and was reveling in his historic appointment. She was the organization’s first female in their C-Suite. Let go on Jan. 16th, last Thursday, she took no time to file a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) against the Academy.

In her complaint, she let loose with a ton of secrets that is sure to make this GRAMMY season blush. According to The NPR, one of those company secrets is that Neil Portnow, who held the job before her, raped a female artist in New York. [Clutch those pearls] She also revealed that despite his alleged sexual assault of another woman, she was forced by the chair of Recording Academy Board, John Poppo, to hire him as a “consultant” and basically making her presence in the position just a facade. His fee? Three-quarters of a cool M.

Another major bomb as that the Academy’s general counsel and former board chair, Joel Katz, sexually harassed her last year and before she took the CEO position, making her feel devalued.

Both Neil Portnow and Joel Katz have flat out called her a liar.

Portnow released a statement in Billboard that called her allegations “inaccurate, false and outrageous.”

“This document is filled with inaccurate, false and outrageous and terribly hurtful claims against me. The allegations of rape are ludicrous, and untrue. The suggestion that there was is disseminating a lie. The baseless complaint about my conduct referenced in the EEOC filing was immediately brought to the attention of the Board of Director’s Executive Committee. An in-depth independent investigation by experienced and highly regarded lawyers was conducted and I was completely exonerated. There was no basis for the allegations and once again I deny them unequivocally.”

Billboard, Former Recording Academy President Neil Portnow Responds to Rape and Other Allegations, Calling Them ‘Ludicrous and Untrue’, 1/22/20

Katz also released a statement through his lawyer, Howard Weitzman, stating in more eloquent words (of course) that she was bugging.

“Ms. Dugan’s allegations of harassment and her description of a dinner at the steakhouse in the Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel are false, and Mr. Katz categorically and emphatically denies her version of that evening.”

“Mr. Katz believed they had a productive and professional meeting in a restaurant where a number of members of the Board of Trustees of the Academy, and others, were dining.”

“Mr. Katz will cooperate in any and all investigations or lawsuits by telling the absolute and whole truth. Hopefully Ms. Dugan will do the same.”

NPR, statement given to the site from Attorney Howard Weitzman’s office.

Her allegations did not stop with that.

Dugan, according to Pitchfork, breaks down what she seems to be shocked at but many have been saying forever; the underrepresentation of women and minority groups at the show and with the awards.

She states what seems to be systemic racism and sexism by saying that they “routinely faced criticism for failing to honor Black artists,” and that the process is “ripe with corruption.”

The Academy is saying that something is ripe alright… maybe even past that… downright gone bad, and she is the bad fruit. They say that if she had those problems that these allegations never came up until she knew she was getting fired because she herself was harassing people. She was under investigation for allegedly bullying another female employee. The Academy alleges that Dugan wanted $22 million to step down.

Y’all clearly, she knows where the bodies are buried.

They gave this statement: “We regret that Music’s Biggest Night is being stolen from them by Ms. Dugan’s actions and we are working to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.”

According to the NPR, over the last 7 months, Dugan has been working hard to do some “major restructuring,” pledge to make the awards more gender and racially inclusive and diverse, measurable goals to achieve that goal and adding measures to enhance voting regarding the awards more transparent to the membership.

However, 10 days before the actual show, she was placed on administrative leave… essentially canning the whistleblower.

6ix9ine’s Girlfriend Defends His Snitching

6ixine’s girlfriend is standing by her man.

Despite the backlash following his snitching, Jade is showing her loyalty to her boyfriend. Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the model shared a new photo of the embattled rapper from jail where he is serving his 24-month sentence. Tekashi appears in all white with his hair in braids, his signature rainbow hair now faded.

Jade also addressed the hate 6ix9ine has been receiving since testifying against his former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members in exchange for a reduced sentence. She defended his snitching by saying that he had to do what’s best for him.

“They kidnapped you , they had sex with the mother of your child , they get caught on the phone trying to kill you & their stealing millions of dollars from you,” she began. “If you snitch , for the rest of your life people are gonna try to kill you for being a rat but if you don’t snitch , you’re doing 47 years in prison where they’re gonna kill you anyway because they were already talking about it .”

She compared his case to notorious mobster Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano. “Sammy the Bull kills 19 people and gets 5 years . You kill no one and gets 2 years . This shit is so fucked up,” she said before touting his accomplishments. “LMFAOOO they can’t break you , no one understands why people still love you and support you . 💕13X PLATINUM 💿 8X GOLD 📀 AND YOU HAD NO FRIENDS IN THIS INDUSTRY TO START OFF YOUR CAREER YOU TOLD EVERYONE SUCK YOUR DICK !!!”

She added, “THEY KNOW THE INTERNET HASN’T BEEN THE SAME SINCE YOU LEFT I LOVE YOU BABY #FREE YOU.”

Jade has remained loyal to Tekashi throughout his legal ordeals. She visits him in prison often and even has tattoos of the rapper on her body. For Christmas in 2018, he bought her a Mercedes G-Wagon.

But she’ll have to wait a little longer for their reunion. Just this week, a federal judge denied the rapper’s motion to serve his 24 months under home confinement. Tekashi had been facing a minimum of 47 years behind bars, which was reduced to two years. He has already served 14 months, which will count toward his sentence.
