Netflix is adding more original programming to its already massive lineup, and the streaming service is throwing its hat in the music competition reality series ring. It was announced recently that Chance The Rapper, Cardi B and T.I. will serve as judges for the upcoming Rhythm + Flow show.

Billboard reports:

Netflix has tapped Chance the Rapper, Cardi B and T.I. to serve as judges for their new music competition show, which is coming to the streaming service next fall. Rhythm + Flow hopes to turn into rap’s American Idol, in search of the next superstar in hip-hop.

The Chicago native is encouraging unsigned artists who are ready and dedicated to apply to for a potential audition through Rhythm + Flow’s website. The competition will hold 10 one-hour episodes in total for the series, with auditions taking place in New York, Chicago and Atlanta. “Do you have what it takes,” Cardi captioned on Instagram in promotion of her latest venture.

Outside of the Coloring Book artist’s quest to discover burgeoning talent, Chano is lending his ability to assist in developing a feature musical titled Hope, which will be set up through MGM. The movie musical follows a group of teens who flip art into a community action. The project will be overseen by Chance’s frequent collaborator Nico Segal, formerly known as Donnie Trumpet.

The same week, Reebok’s president came forward and confirmed the company’s decision to work with the “Bodak Yellow” superstar.

“For us, she really is emblematic of what our brand has done well over the years and that is to be bold, provocative and uninhibited,” Matthew O’Toole, Reebok’s president, told WWD. “If we look at some of the things we’ve done with Allen Iverson or being the first to sign musicians, or more recently with Kerby [Jean-Raymond] of Pyer Moss, when we are at our best we are with people who are comfortable living out loud and Cardi fits that.” (Just Jared)

T.I. Pulls For Young Thug’s Freedom: “Free My Lil Bro – RIGHT GOT-D*MN NOW”

T.I.

The King of the South is making demands. Rap star T.I. is pouring out his support for jailed hip-hop affiliate Young Thug following a drug violation arrest.

Tip hit up Instagram Tuesday (November 13) to give Thugger a look and show his desire to have him freed.

Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill recently bashed the criminal system for ruthlessly throwing Thug behind bars.

A few days ago, buzz developed about Thug getting placed in jail for a failed drug test.

Young Thug (born: Jeffery Lamar Williams) has had his bond revoked and has been booked in Georgia’s DeKalb County Jail on felony drug and gun charges, the Blast reports and Pitchfork can confirm. According to court records viewed by Pitchfork, Williams failed a drug test prior to a scheduled arraignment this morning (November 8). The arraignment was tied to a September 2017 arrest, during which the rapper was cited for possession of marijuana, methamphetamine, and hydrocodone with intent to distribute. He was also found with codeine (two counts), a firearm, alprazolam (aka Xanax), and an amphetamine. (Pitchfork)

Prior to landing in handcuffs, Thug was expected to appear in court for a 2017 arrest case.

He was due in court today for an arraignment hearing for the charges, but was arrested on Wednesday morning for the failed drug test. The judge revoked his probation today. He was booked in Georgia’s DeKalb County Jail. (Stereogum)

T.I. Shares Disturbing Revelation After California Bar Shooter Coverage

T.I.

Grammy-winning rapper T.I. is way more woke than people realize. The King of the South went to social media this week to share his issues with the way media portrays the person responsible for mass shootings.

In light of this week’s shocking California shooting, Tip acknowledged how deceased Marine Ian David Long received an excuse from a media outlet.

This week, media reported on officials suggesting David Long suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder.

Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies in April checked in with the troubled 28-year-old, who was living at his mother’s home in Newbury Park, Calif., and found him acting “somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally,” Sheriff Geoff Dean said at a press conference. The heavily tattooed vet was evaluated by mental health professionals — but they concluded he didn’t need to be placed in a temporary psychiatric hold. (New York Post)

This week, the 28-year-old military veteran opened fire at a Cali bar and killed 12 people.

The gunman who opened fire late Wednesday night at a Southern California bar, killing 12 people, has been identified as 28-year-old Ian David Long, a veteran of the Marine Corps with a history of volatile behavior, PEOPLE confirms. Long was identified by the Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean at a Thursday morning news conference. Dean previously said that authorities believe the shooter acted alone when he attacked the Borderline Bar & Grill late Wednesday in Thousand Oaks. (People)

T.I. Gets Assault Charge Dropped, Still On The Hook For Public Drunkenness & Disorderly Conduct

T.I. Hosts Voter Registration Drive and Community Cookout

T.I. just got hit with some good news and bad news regarding his arrest this past May when he tried to enter his gated community. The good news is that prosecutors have dropped the charge of simple assault. The bad news is that they’ve decided to proceed with the public drunkenness and disorderly conduct charge.

According to AJC the Dime Trap artist will have to face the misdemeanor charge he caught when he got into it with a security guard who denied him entry into his own gated community earlier this year.

From AJC:

T.I., whose legal name is Clifford Harris Jr., is accused of the misdemeanor charges in Henry County court. The rapper was arrested May 16 after returning to his gated Eagle’s Landing community without his keys.

He asked the security guard, Euwan James, to let him in, and the guard initially refused. James eventually complied, and T.I went home. He returned to get the name of the guard’s supervisor, and things got heated, according to a Henry County police report.

T.I. is accused of being intoxicated when he confronted James and using “vulgar, profane, loud and unbecoming language.” Three counts of disorderly conduct are related to the rapper’s profane language, asking James to leave his guard shack to confront him and for goading him to a fight, prosecutors charged.

He allegedly told James, “Nobody will get you out of this” and “you have to look me in the eyes as a man,” according to charging documents.

T.I.’s defense attorney, Steve Sadow, takes issue with the third count of disorderly conduct. In a motion to dismiss, he claims T.I.’s words to the guard constitute expressive conduct, not an actual threat of a fight, court records show.

Luckily for Tip the simple assault charge was dropped when it was amended this past October, but unfortunately, the public drunkenness and disorderly conduct charge remains.

A jury trial is set to begin next February 4.

Assault Charge from T.I.’s May Assault Charge Dropped

Back in May, T.I. was arrested outside his home in Atlanta. Originally hit with three charges, one has been removed from the King’s legal issues. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports T.I.’s assault charge has been dropped.

While the assault charge is gone from T.I., he will still have to deal with his public drunkenness and disorderly conduct charges from the incident.

To remind you of the incident, a reportedly intoxicated T.I. was without his key to gain access to his home and community, eventually resulting in an arrest and bond release. The next step in T.I.’s case from this incident is a trial on February 4.

This charge being dropped is one less hurdle for T.I. to climb over. He is also being sued for a case of cryptocurrency confusion with investors, along with receiving controversy with his video with a Melania Trump imposter.

Stacey Abrams Receives Endorsement from Diddy for Governor of Georgia

It is no secret that Diddy has a knack for influencing history. Yesterday, the “Bad Boy for Life” took to Twitter to declare he has officially endorsed Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams for the position of governor of the state of Georgia. If Abrams campaign is victorious, she will become the first Black woman to become governor in America.

“Attention Georgia!!! I’m officially endorsing @staceyabrams for Governor,” Diddy wrote. “She is without a doubt the right person for the job. But the only way this can happen is if you get out and vote. Let your voice be heard, don’t let anything stop you from voting!! IT’S TIME TO FIGHT BACK.”

The tweet was accompanied with a video where the Hip-Hop tycoon is seen urging Georgia residents to vote for Abrams.

“It’s not just because of that. Its because she’s for the people. She’s behind the people. But right now she needs the people,” said Diddy.

Stacey Abrams is running against Brian Kemp of the Republican party for midterm elections. Hip-Hop notables have been active in support of Abrams’ historical campaign. Atlanta rap stars Jermaine Dupri, Ludacris, and T.I. have also expressed their support towards the vigorous candidate. In July, T.I. got the chance to interview Abrams for The Atlanta Voice where the two touched based matters in the likes of education reform and small businesses. According to The Cut, the campaign also received a boost from talk show legend Oprah last week when she rolled with Abrams’ team to knock on the doors Georgia residents and grace town halls.

“I’m here today for Stacey Abrams,” Oprah declared at a Georgia town hall. “I am here for the men and women who were lynched, humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed, and oppressed, for the right for equality at the polls.”

With the wide span of support Abrams is receiving, there is no doubt at her chance at making history.

T.I. Sued For $5 Million, Investors Want Money Back A.S.A.P For Failed Cryptocurrency

T.I. sued for failed cryptocurrency

Source: Bernard Smalls/iOne Digital

The self-proclaimed king of the south, T.I. is in some serious trouble. Investors are looking to recoup the money they invested into the rappers failed cryptocurrency scheme.

TMZ reports that instead of getting insanely rich, investors instead are flat out broke now and are now suing the “All About The Money” rapper for at least $5 million. The cryptocurrency called FLiK Token was created back in August 2017 by Atlanta businessman Ryan Felton and T.I.

Per TMZ:

The pissed off investors say the opening price was 6 cents per token, but Felton said it would be worth $14.99 within 15 months. Little quick math for ya — that would be a nearly 25,000% increase!!!

But, according to docs, obtained by TMZ, the get-rich-quick scheme backfired. About 2 dozen plaintiffs say the tokens initially jumped from 6 cents to 21 cents but cut to August 2018 … and they’re worth LESS than a penny, each.

The investors say Felton was all over social media talking about big-time investors, and claim he even insinuated Mark Cuban was coming on board. Additionally, Kevin Hart tweeted a pic of himself with Tip, congratulating him on the FLiK launch.

The group says the coins are virtually useless now, and the failed venture collectively cost them more than $2 million. The investors’ attorney tells us he filed the suit Thursday … going after Felton and T.I. for at least $5 million. 

Looks like the “Rubber Band Man” has a costly problem on his hands here. Won’t be surprised if he and his investor settle this ASAP. This latest issue joins the fallout he’s facing from the far-right who feel he should be canceled for the Melania Trump look-alike he had in a visual for a track off his Dime Trap album.
