unnamed 1

Jorja Smith has released a new 8-track project titled Be Right Back. The release is the first since her 2019 album Lost & Found and features the lead single “Bussdown.”

The new effort is string heavy in production and brings in imaginative songs for the listener.

“It’s called be right back because it’s just something I want my fans to have right now, this isn’t an album and these songs wouldn’t have made it,” Smith said of the release. “If I needed to make these songs, then someone needed to hear them too.”

Jorja will also be returning to the live circuit later this year and will be performing at Glastonbury’s live-streamed event on Saturday, May 22nd along with headlining London festival, All Points East on Friday, August 27th.

You can hear the new release below.

According to several confirmed reports, songwriter Justin Wright aka J. Wright was arrested on Monday and charged with first-degree murder of his 20-year-old girlfriend Wilanna Bibbs in Iowa.

The 31-year-old multi-platinum songwriter who has written songs for Future, Timbaland, 21 Savage, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled and others remains behind bars on a $500K cash-only bond.

The killing took place in Davenport, Iowa on Mother’s Day(May 9). Bibbs, a North Carolina resident, was pronounced dead at the scene.

“They were dating and Justin manipulated and controlled her, she was trying to leave,” a family member of Willanna Bibbs allegedly relayed to The Neighborhood Talk. “His mother bought her a ticket to come back to her son.”

Wright’s Camp Entertainment Worldwide was launched in 2011 and became one of the premier full-service entertainment companies in the industry. It was also reported that Wright was mentored by R. Kelly in the early stages of his career.

Lil Scrappy Shares Current Thoughts on Rap Career

lilscrappy

Make many entertainers in the industry, there comes a time where a performer has to make a decision to keep the coins flowing. In a sit-down with Big Facts Podcast, Darryl Raynard Richardson, better known as Lil Scrappy has an open conversation about some of the decisions he had to make in his career, one including becoming a cast member of the popular VH1 reality show, Love and Hip Hop.

Scrappy was asked if joining reality television as a rapper was like “signing a death certificate” for their music career. “Yeah, I’ve seen it happen,” the Atlanta native answered.  “Before I even got into it, I was looking at [it], I was like, ‘Damn.’”

“But I thought about, I was like, ‘Sh*t, I ain’t even got a Rap career right now, so, you know what I’m saying, I don’t even give a f*ck,’” he continued.  “I didn’t even give a f*ck. And then for real, like, when I say I’m connected with the god that created me, like, he put something in me. He was just—like Bank said man—‘Just keep that sh*t gangster, be yourself, my n*gga.’”

Scrappy then shared that in his early stages of becoming a reality tv star, he was told that production would not be following him heavily, just enough to capture his love life. “Even if that, if you not careful, it’ll f*ck your whole love life up. And it done f*cked every last one of mine up. Just destroyed it.”

Scrappy is currently married to Adi “Bambi” Richardson after tying the knot in 2017. The couple shares two beautiful children together, Xylo and Breland Richardson.

Black Man Charged With Murder After Shooting White Burglar In Oklahoma

Screen Shot 2021 05 14 at 9.20.01 AM

A report from the Atlanta Black Star confirms that a veteran and father of five is set for trial for first-degree murder after he fatally shot a burglar trying to break into his marijuana business.

34-year-old LaRue Bratcher fatally shot 42-year-old Daniel Hardwick back in May 2020 after Hardwick attempted to break into Bratcher’s grow operation for the second consecutive night in a row.

“He was trying to break in when the business owner, who was inside the business at the time, apparently opened fire with a handgun, striking and killing the man who was breaking in,” according to Master Sergeant Gary Knight.

Bratcher called 911 after the attempted robbery, but the police checked in with the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority and found out that Bratcher’s license was expired. This not only got Bratcher charged with growing marijuana without a license, but the district attorney came back and decided to charge Bratcher with first-degree murder.

Even though Bratcher acted in self defense, the district attorney argues that Bratcher’s actions were felonious because his marijuana license had expired. The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority recently changed its policy to allow cardholders to use their expired license while waiting for a new card to arrive.

Bratcher remains in jail until his trial is set to begin later this month.

TheSource.com will update this story as it develops.

Love and Hip Hop’s Prince Harty Calls Out Tory Lanez in Boxing Match

Tory Lanez Reportedly Pleads Not Guilty in Megan Thee Stallion Shooting Case

Love & Hip Hop Miami’s Prince seems to be calling out R&B singer Tory Lanez in a boxing match following reports of Tory allegedly striking Prince in the face at a nightclub. After posting a video to his Instagram account showing minor injuries, the popular promoter then petitioned for a chance to step in the ring with the Canadian singer.

“I feel like y’all genuinely feel like this man can walk up to me, smack me in mouth & just keep going like sh*t cool …. by himself,” Prince penned under the video. “I will BEAT THE SH*T OUT OF SHORTY LANEZ. But unfortunately, he has more money & is just way more lit than I am. So he can afford to keep big security n*ggas around to protect him EVERYWHERE he goes. Or pay for the Zoe’s in Miami to protect him. I’m forever alone, or with women. Only options available to me to retaliate will end up with me in prison, dead or seriously f*cked up .”

“So let’s do this … I’ll drop the lawsuit against you @torylanez if you let @triller & @celebrityboxing1 set up a fight between us,” he added. “So now you don’t have to run me a bag, & we can make a bag together. & really show the people what they want. That you’ll pop me in mouth & beat my ass. Cuz you can right? @johnnydonovan make it happen. Floyd fighting Logan, someone get us on the card.”

Despite Prince’s accusations, a rep for Tory stated that Tory was “nowhere near Prince at the time he alleges.”
