The Georgia native hit up Instagram Friday to announce Black has had multiple Florida weapons charges dropped. Instead of putting down a massive caption, Yachty used a bunch of praying hands emojis to celebrate the news.

🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾” -Lil Yachty’s Instagram

High-Key Details

According to Black’s legal muscle, he avoided at least 10-plus years behind bars with some charges getting dropped. Kodak’s lawyer and the Florida State Attorney put together a deal for him to enter a court-ordered drug treatment.

We’re told both felony charges of ‘possession of a firearm by a prohibited person,’ have been dismissed — which could have carried a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. Kodak’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, tells The Blast, “The State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and her team sat down with me and listened to everything I had to say about Kodak.” (The Blast)

Wait, There’s More

Black is reportedly suffering in prison. A shocking post recently went viral from the jailed star’s Instagram account claiming guards brutally beat the hip-hop entertainer. The report came from inmates at the high-security prison in Big Sandy, Kentucky.

“We just heard from fellow inmates at Max. Penitentiary Big Sandy KY. In regards to @kodakblack treatment. He couldn’t call himself as he is not allowed phone or visitation for 6 months as punishment for the incident in Miami, even though that has been the case since September, they refuse to give him credit for that time. Friday night he was badly beaten while in cuffs, by 7 guards at Big Sandy KY. They struck him in the head repeatedly with a metal object, Then after one of the guards flicked his genitals and said “you’re not so gangster now, you’re gonna need bigger balls to survive”. We have notified his counsel @lawronin and he advised he will be asking for a full investigation by @thejusticedept and the FBI” – Kodak Black’s Instagram

Before You Go

Hip-hop heavyweight French Montana recently said Kodak kept it strictly business when making music together. During a chat with radio veteran Big Boy, he shared a serious yet hilarious story about shooting the “Lockjaw” video. When asked who was the most difficult to work with, French took no time to answer with the Florida rapper’s name.

“Definitely probably Kodak. Not difficult, but it just, my boy, he’s about that life. It was just, me and him didn’t have one conversation while shooting the [‘Lockjaw’] video, he just growled at me. But that’s my dawg.”

Black Lives Matter Takes Over Donald Trump’s Neighborhood W/ Mayor Renaming Street In Honor Of George Floyd Supporters

Black Lives Matter Plaza

The Black Lives Matter movement is coming to Donald Trump‘s doorstep – literally. The Washington, DC mayor has renamed a street close to the White House ‘Black Lives Matter Plaza’ and has a mural on deck to honor George Floyd protestors.

Black Lives Matter x DC

According to reports, the mayor has also given the green light for city crews to paint a mural honoring peaceful demonstrators at the nation’s capital pushing for a permanent end to police brutality.

Muralists painted “BLACK LIVES MATTER” in roughly 50-foot-wide yellow letters on a section of 16th Street that sits just in front of Lafayette Park, the site of huge protests over the death of George Floyd, a black man who was pinned to the ground with a white police officer’s knee on his neck for nearly nine minutes in Minneapolis. The area — near historic St. John’s Church — is where protesters were forcibly removed on Monday evening just before Trump walked through Lafayette Park to pose in front of the church for photographs while holding a Bible.  (USA Today)

Mayor Muriel Bowser hasn’t received all positive reactions. There are some people taking a major issue with the mayor’s approval of the painted ‘Black Lives Matter’ street and said specific action against law enforcement policies needed to take place.

“This is a performative distraction from real policy changes. Bowser has consistently been on the wrong side of BLMDC history. This is to appease white liberals while ignoring our demands. Black Lives Matter means defund the police.” -Black Lives Matter DC’s Twitter

Wait, There’s More

On Friday, Mayor Bowser specifically called out President Trump. She requested he remove federal law enforcement and military from the city.

“I request that @realDonaldTrump withdraw all extraordinary federal law enforcement and military presence from our city.” -Mayor Bowser’s Twitter

Before You Go

Earlier in the week, Trump’s daughter made an unexpected move in support of Black Lives Matter. Tiffany went to her social media pages to promote BLM by contributing to Blackout Tuesday.

Watch Swae Lee Cover Puff Daddy’s ‘I’ll Be Missing You’

Swae Lee is paying tribute to the lives lost.

After a week of Black Lives Matter protests across the country, the Rae Sremmurd crooner has turned to music to share his pain and uplift during trying times.

“I just wanted to use my voice to do something positive, so I’ma sing a little tune for y’all,” said Swae in the two-minute clip, which he shared on Instagram.

While seated in front of his computer, he performed a cover of Puff Daddy’s 1997 hit “I’ll Be Missing You” with its poignant lyrics. “Every step I take, every move I make / Every single day, every time I pray / I’ll be missing you,” he sings. “Thinkin’ of the day, when you went away / What a life to take, what a bond to break / I’ll be missing you.”

The video ended with a message: “Stay safe. See you soon!”

Earlier in the week, Swae joined demonstrations in Miami to protest police brutality and racial inequality. “The voices of humanity are being heard now more than ever !!!!” he said. “Feel the power of unity we have always been stronger as one …putting our differences aside is the biggest step for mankind.”

Prior to the pandemic, Swae had been working on his solo album. In March, he released a video for his single “Someone Said.”

Kanye West Pays For George Floyd Daughter’s College Fund

As it was reported yesterday, Chi-Town born rap mogul Kanye West donated $2 million to the families and legal teams of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and Geroge Floyd, however, Yeezus has also reportedly fully paid the tuition for George Floyd’s daughter, Gianna Floyd.

West has also donated to several Black owned businesses in his hometown, just in time for the arrests of the four Minnesota Police officers involved in the death of George Floyd.

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison announced just two days ago that Derek Chauvin, the ex-officer who had his knee on George Floyd’s neck, which killed him, had his charges upgraded to second degree murder while the other officers, Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao are all charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and abetting second-degree manslaughter.

Many other celebrities have taken their star power to the streets to stand in support of justice for George Floyd including Nick Cannon, Jamie Foxx, Michael B. Jordan, Trey Songz as well as Bun B and Trae The Truth, who organized a rally earlier this week in Floyd’s hometown of Houston to protest police violence.

Tory Lanez Calls His One-Time Foe Drake A Living Legend For One Reason Alone: “Forever The Goat”

Tory Lanez Calls Drake GOAT

Rap crooner Tory Lanez has nothing but love for the 6 God. The hip-hop singer went online this week to deliver a major salute to one-time foe Drake and label him the greatest of all time.

Tory x Drake

This week, Tory Lanez hit up Instagram with footage of himself turning up to some Drake as he showed love for his fellow Canadian friend. In the clip, he also calls the fellow Toronto native a living legend based solely off his music’s vibes from a massive penthouse.

Tory Lanez living his best life 🌃 .” -Tory Lanez’s Instagram

Tory Lanez shows his love for Drake

High-Key Details

Back in August 2018, Drake and Tory shocked Toronto fans. The one-time rap foes united on-stage at Drizzy’s 8th annual OVO Fest concert for an unforgettable moment.

“I wanna say something. Look, I want every young person in this building to look at what’s happening – I want you to understand something. You see this guy right here? We had problems with each other, we had never even met each other, I met the man and he’s a great guy!”

Wait, There’s More

A few months prior, Troy confirmed ending a nasty feud with the 6 God. Lanez also vowed to keep small details connected to their feud between them.

“It’s about music at this point. It was a couple other things around it [other than a phone call] but it’s between me and him. I think for it to him the way it happened, it was meant to happen that way. For whatever the reasons around it were, it’s between me and him. I’m good.” (Hot 97)

Before You Go

In May 2017, a report surfaced about Drake and Tory ending their beef through mutual contacts.

Sources connected to the rappers tell TMZ … Drizzy and Tory ended their years-long beef after mutual friends got in their ears about the pettiness. We’re told the phone call was placed by one of Tory’s pals to one of Drake’s — the intermediaries then put both rappers on the horn. That ultimately led to the NYC meeting where they took the peace summit Instagram shot. (TMZ)

Call Of Duty Follows Grand Theft Auto’s Lead W/ Black Lives Matter In-Game Statement

Call of Duty Modern Warfare George Floyd Black Lives Matter

Activision’s Call of Duty knows the importance of Black Lives Matter. The huge gaming franchise has added a new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in-game message to show its support for the protests happening around the world.

Call of Duty x BLM

As of Friday morning, gamers will now be greeted with a message when they load up the video game. It also reportedly appears when switching to separate in-game modes.

Infinity Ward just released an update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare that adds a splash screen message in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Players are being told they need to update their client upon finishing multiplayer games, and once they do, the message appears on screen. “Our community is hurting,” the statement reads. “The systemic inequalities our community experiences are once again center stage. Call of Duty and Infinity Ward stand for equality and inclusion. We stand against the racism and injustice our Black community endures. Until change happens and Black Lives Matter, we will never truly be the community we strive to be.” (The Verge)

High-Key Details

On Thursday, another huge video game franchise showed its support for Black Lives Matter and the life of slain black man George Floyd. Powerhouse company Rockstar’s biggest titles temporarily shut down in Floyd’s memory. The statement showed the company’s commitment to supporting Black Lives Matter around the globe and especially in the United States.

Black Lives Matter. To honor the legacy of George Floyd, today, 6/4/20, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. ET, we will be shutting down access to our online games, Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online. -Rockstar Games’ Twitter

Wait, There’s More

The shutdown time period coincided with memorial services taking place for Floyd. Various high-profile celebrities showed support and attended the live-streamed event in Minneapolis.

A somber and defiant memorial for George Floyd in Minneapolis gave way to a 10th night of protests on Thursday as thousands of demonstrators again poured into the nation’s streets, crowding outside City Hall in Seattle and marching across the Brooklyn Bridge. The Rev. Al Sharpton, who gave a eulogy for Mr. Floyd, pledged that his death would be a catalyst for change, after video showed a white police officer kneeling on Mr. Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes as he lay face down and handcuffed on the pavement, saying “I can’t breathe.” The tragedy, Mr. Sharpton said, was also a symbolic message: “Get your knee off our necks.” (New York Times)

Before You Go

A few specific standouts from the service included Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish and Martin Luther King III. Rev. Jesse Jackson also played a huge role at the event by praying over Floyd’s casket and Rev. Al Sharpton spoke big words about the George’s family dealing with the death’s aftermath.

“It would be inadequate if you did not regard the life and love and celebration the family wants,” Sharpton said. “But it would also be inadequate … if you acted as though we’re at a funeral that happened under natural circumstances. … The family is not independent of the community,” he said. “The family wants to see something happen.” (Mass Live)
