Good news for Lil Boosie fans. The New Orleans rapper, who has been incarcerated since 2009, is scheduled to walk out of prison on Aug. 18, 2014.
According to NOLA.com, the date is on record with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections. Once Boosie is out of prison, he will remain under supervision through June 17, 2018, according to the agency’s communications director, Pam Laborde.
Speculations on when Boosie, real name Terrance Hatch, will be freed have been a topic of conversation on the Internet. Rumor has it that he would be released in November but that month came and went with no freed Boosie.
Even Rick Ross said the same thing in an interview with Power 105.1. “I’m going to put a bag on the table for that boy,” he told the Breakfast Club. “You never know.”
Boosie was sent to prison on a probation violation and marijuana possession charges in 2009, and had his sentence extended after he pleaded guilty for attempting to smuggle narcotics into the prison. The 31-year-old rapper was also facing a murder rap for the shooting death of Terry Boyd in 2009, but was acquitted in 2012.
Since news of Boosie’s impending release, fans on Twitter have been tweeting #FreeBoosie on their timelines.

Merdith Barber, a self-professed Redskins fan, is the VCU student who posted texts she says came from RG3 on his wedding day (July 6). She contacted us yesterday to clarify some information in our Sunday post and eventually went into saleswoman mode to get us to buy what she says are “inappropriate” photos RG3 sent to her.
A wild negotiation started via email and @Mere__eventually broke off the conversation when our offer of $500, for everything but the d**k pics, wasn’t to her liking.
The site decided to post all of the lusty evidence the blonde bimbo sent them and it looks like RG3 was really trying to get it popping with somebody other than his wife…
And now…the alleged freak pics.
Meredith even posted tickets and gifts the baller made it rain on the Hooters ho:
Rapper Young Jeezy was arrested in Atlanta for battery, false imprisonment, and making terroristic threats against his own son … TMZ has learned.
According to the charging documents — obtained by TMZ — Jeezy got into a fight with his son in a bathroom and he threw his son into the glass shower door, causing the son to hit his head. Then Jeezy allegedly punched him in the face, dragged him into the bedroom, threw him on the bed and pummeled him.
The docs go on — claiming Jeezy choked his son and said, “I will kill you.” According to police docs, Jeezy’s son claims his dad said, “I will put a bullet in your head right now,” adding, “If I could get away with it, I would kill you.” The incident allegedly occurred in Sept., 2012.
We’ve learned Jeezy turned himself in to authorities Friday after a grand jury warrant for each charge was issued. He bonded out soon after for $45,000.
Jeezy’s attorney tells TMZ, “We have no doubt this matter will resolve itself appropriately. At this moment, Mr. Jenkins is thankful for the support of his fans and the respect for his family’s privacy.”

Former G-Unit rapper Mazaradi Fox was shot and killed Friday January 3 in his hometown of Queens, NY. Fox was 42.
50 Cent offered his condolences.
“Saddened by the news of Mazaradi’s tragic passing my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends,” 50 Cent said in Twitter.
The murder occurred roughly at 4:10 pm Friday by shooter that was wearing a ski mask, according to the New York Daily News. When a white SUV pulled up, Fox was shot multiple times, along with others in the area.
Fox signed to G-Unit in 2007, but never put out an album on the iconic label. By 2008, he was off G-Unit.
Rapper Kayo Redd, younger brother of hip-hop star Waka Flocka Flame, died yesterday in Atlanta.
Redd recently released a mixtape, Redd Kisses, and promoted it just hours before he died. The cause of his death has not been officially released; conflicting reports pin it to a shooting in his old neighborhood or suicide. The latter has been reported with an alleged, distraught tweet from Waka that is no longer visible in his feed.
Waka Flocka Flame’s Home Raided
Waka Flocka took to Twitter yesterday to mourn his sibling, first posting, “God please bless me.” About seven hours later, he added, “Ya Big Brother love you Kayo” and posted a 15-second photo montage of Redd. Their mother, Debra Antney, also eulogized Redd last night with a single post: “I just lost another son.”
The personal tragedy is the latest in a series for Waka Flocka, who lost another brother in a car accident when he was 13; Antney told Vibe that the loss caused the future rapper to act out and blame himself. In 2011, Slim Dunkin, a member of Waka’s Brick Squad Monopoly crew and a frequent collaborator, was murdered during an argument in a recording studio.

So sad. The up-and-coming rapper from Montgomery, Ala. was killed early in the morning on Dec. 28, dying from a reported gunshot wound. He was only 22 years old.
A violent shooting has tragically taken another young rapper. Doe B (real name Glenn Thomas), who was part of T.I.‘s hip-hop collective Hustle Gang, was unfortunately shot and killed after performing early in the morning on Dec. 28 in his hometown of Montgomery, Ala. He was just 22 years old.
Doe B: Rapper Shot & Killed
The fatal shooting reportedly occurred at Centennial Hill Bar and Grill, according to Rap-Up. Another woman, 21-year-old Kim Johnson, was also killed in the shooting, All Hip Hop reports.
Doe B – ‘Let Me Find Out (Remix)’
T.I., who signed Doe B to his record label, broke the news with a sad, heartfelt post on Instagram:
RIP to my lil brother Doe B. We gon miss you my n****. U’ll never be forgotten & U WILL NOT DIE IN VAIN. We Love U champ. Always. Just rest now my n****…. WE GOT IT From here.
A rep for Doe B’s management then sadly confirmed the death as well, tweeting:
NEW YORK — “He wrote all them love songs and still don’t know how to treat a b*tch” Responded Aisha Atkin’s rapper Ja Rule’s wife in an opening statement during her MTV exclusive “Married Life After Prison” set to air later this month. “We spent 10 plus years building our marriage but it only took him two to decide he’d rather suck a d*ck than be with his wife” Ja Rule was sentenced to two years in jail for a gun charge and released earlier in 2013 when he presumably returned to life with his family, but according to Aisha that is simply not the case. “He returned home alright; To get his shit and leave” She claims that Ja Rule real name Jeffery Atkins simply told her that he was sleeping with his personal trainer and not until later did she find out that not only was he a man, but his prison cell mate. Aisha admits that she hopes this is just a phase, but is now convinced that the whole 50 cent thing was not just a silly rap feud, but more than likely a crush.
Sources connected to the NBA star tell us people on Lamar’s side, and on the Kardashian side have not been able to find Lamar or contact him for nearly 72 hours — and we’re told the main concern is he’s hiding out while doing crack cocaine.
As TMZ first reported … Khloe Kardashian threw him out of the house Wednesday after attempting an intervention which Lamar squarely rejected.
We’ve already told you Lamar’s been battling addiction for at least 2 years — and even reluctantly agreed to go to rehab in San Diego a year ago … although he bailed after 3 weeks.
Our sources tell us Lamar has gone off the hinges since basketball season ended and he became a free agent.
We’re told his drug addiction is the core reason why his marriage to Khloe has fallen apart.
Short story … everyone’s worried.
It all started with a traffic stop around midnight near I-40 and Meridian. Police tell us the officer suspected drug activity onboard the bus and ordered everyone out. Someone then locked the bus and refused to leave, holding police at bay for nine hours.
SLIDESHOW: Bus pulled over, 11 arrested.
According to TMZ, the bus was pulled over around midnight because its taillights were out but when officers approached the vehicle, they reported signs of drug use and wanted to board the bus. That’s when the driver locked the door.
After several hours, Oklahoma City police towed the bus to the police training facility at NW 8th and Portland, and according to TMZ, there were still people on board the bus at that time.
Around 9:00 am, officers obtained a search warrant and entered the bus where they arrested several people. There were several attorneys on the scene but would not say who they were representing.
Police arrested 11 people, including the bus driver, on state misdemeanor charges of obstruction.
[Street News] Who Should Respond To Kendrick Lamar’s “King Of New York” Boast?
“I’m usually homeboys with the same niggas I’m rhymin’ with/But this is hip-hop and them niggas should know what time it is/And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale/Pusha T, Meek Mills, A$AP Rocky, Drake/Big Sean, Jay Electron’, Tyler, Mac Miller/I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you niggas/Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas/They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas”
Last night, Twitter went crazy.
Funkmaster Flex premiered one of Big Sean’s tracks that didn’t make the cut for Hall Of Fame. “Control (HOF)” features a dark beat by No I.D., but due to sample clearances, the seven-minute affair will live on the Internet. So after several listens, what’s the takeaway? Kendrick bodies the beat. No wait, K. Dot murders it, blasting everyone from Big Sean to Drake and even claims he’s the King of New York.
The discussion is far from over. During the wee hours of the night, hip-hop heads and rappers commented on Kendrick’s verse. His call to arms definitely put a battery pack in the backs of a few MCs, who are more than likely cooking up their responses right now. We’ve got our fingers crossed that someone from NY will step up and put on for their city.
In the meantime, who do you think should respond first? Joey Bada$$ seemed adamant to fire off some rhymes, as well as Fab who tweeted this morning, “any studios open yet?” We’re waiting NY…
[Street News] C Murder Attends Grandmother’s Funeral!

“Being able to just sit & have a conversation w/my uncle @iamcmurder was a blessing,” Romeo tweeted. “We gonna get you home Uncle C! Love ya #bestmoment #ripbigmamma.”
[Street News] Young Scooter Speaks From Jail On Chief Keef, Gucci Mane And His New Mixtape
XXL: First off, how are you right now? How’s your mind state?
Young Scooter: I’m ready to get out and get back to my fans. Get ready to do what I need to do.
What’s your day-to-day like?
Really just be writing, and watching TV. There really ain’t too much to do. [Laughs] [I’m] not writing a lot, because I don’t write when I’m on the street, I just go in the booth. I don’t write. So the writing is really new to me, I’ve really just been putting it together like that. From time to time I write, but really I’ve just been doing a lot of thinking.
Got it. So since you’ve been locked up, Chief Keef has signed to Brick Squad. Did you have any part in that?
Yeah, Gucci told me that he and Keef were putting something together, but Chief Keef, that’s my brother. I’ve talked to him since I’ve been in. He know what’s up.
Music-wise, what can fans expect when you come out?
More good music for the streets and more inspirational music. More of the same way, just uptempo. A lot of energy with my music, just turn it up a notch.
Did you write From The Cell Block To Your Block before you went in?
Yeah I had a lot of songs before I came in. Yeah. Actually, I’m releasing it before I get out. I’m releasing the mixtape August 26th, and it’s crazy. It’s like 16 songs on there. Just for my fans, like I’ve got a lot of music, even the music I recorded before I came in. I got 2 albums already recorded, mixtapes, everything. It’s crazy.
Gucci was your reportedly your bunkmate at one point. What did you two talk about?
We just really talking about how we don’t need to be in this situation, how we really have got to do better. We’ve got a lot of fans, a lot of people depending on us, mainly our family and kids. For being a rapper, we’ve got a lot of fans, and they don’t want to see us incarcerated. And both of us being in the same cell that was like kind of crazy.
How do you stay up-to-date with information now? Do people come visit and give you updates or is it through TV?
Nah just my team. I’ve got a team, my Black Migo team, they’re doing what they need to do for me. Like Keisha, Sean.
So, you’re out in 50 days. Name a couple things that you can’t wait to do as soon as you’re a free man.
I can’t wait to see my kids, get back to doing what I’m doing. I can’t wait to keep counting some money. I can’t wait to get back to my fans and just to the studio really. I can’t wait get back and smoke some herbs. [Laughs]
Twitter is still going crazy for you with the #FreeScooter movement. Do you think, after you get out, being incarcerated is going to put you on another level?
Yeah I think it would. I don’t got no music that will make me fail. Like I said, my music is for the struggle, and people who are trying to get some money. I’m not trying to make no slow music. Not saying slow music, because that’s not bad. I’m just trying to say the type of music I’m making is money making. Count music.
What have you learned in the rap game since you’ve started?
Well in the rap game I learned that you’ve gotta—it’s all about talent, you can’t just rush into it because it takes years to get hot. Not even years, it’s really about a song, or nobody just going to buy into your music if you’re just saying anything. So it’s got to be the right time and the right song. You’ve really got to make a name for yourself to keep going and just don’t give up. You’ve got to keep going.
[Street News] Two Video Models Seeking $20 Million From Tyga In Lawsuits Over “Make It Nasty” Video
In documents obtained by TMZ, the women claim they were also told an uncut version of the video would never see the light of day, but one was released via Tyga’s Twitter account on July 28. The three women are suing for breach of contract, invasion of privacy and fraud.
UPDATE: Two of the women suing Tyga for allegedly showing their nipples without their consent in the “Make It Nasty” video have put a price tag on their issue with the YMCMB rapper. According to TMZ, Elizabeth Velasquez and Azia Davies recently filed new court documents this month and are seeking $10 million a piece in punitive damages.
[Street News] Chief Keef & Lil Durk Beef Sparked After Battle of Tweets
The first signs of the beef came when Chief Keef tweeted at Durk, “What happen to OTF? U ain’t rocking with it?”
Two days later, Durk responded with several tweets and retweets of his own.
“Dats like praying on DA weak lol we got DA city #OTF300,” tweeted Durk.
Despite his anger however, Durk made it clear he doesn’t intend on starting a GBE vs. OTF war. The underlying reason for the beef is so far unknown, but it definitely only involves Chief Keef.
“S/o to @lilreese300 and @fredosantana300 for bin 100 and not #fufu #squaaaaaad,” tweeted Durk.
During the exchange of tweets, Atlanta rapper and GBE enemy Soulja Boy somehow got mixed up in everything as well. Durk warned that this beef wouldn’t be so tame, since he’s no Soulja Boy.
“Warning, I’m not #souljaboy dis sh*t can get ugly,” tweeted Durk.
And if cooler heads cannot prevail, the beef may very well get ugly. Keef and Durk both spoke of guns in their exchange of tweets, expressing their willingness to turn things violent.
“How many guns dese f**k n*ggas gone make me grab?” tweeted Keef.
Hopefully, none. We’ll be keeping an eye on this beef as it progresses.
Nicki Files Restraining Order Against DJ Khaled After Proposal
As everyone is quite aware of now, Khaled went on MTV Thursday to profess his undying love for Nicki, and even asked her to take his hand in marriage. With that proposal, Khaled whipped out a 10-karat diamond ring worth $500,000. But, despite his efforts, everyone was still left wondering–is this real?
According to HipHop365, Nicki found no endearment in Khaled’s proposal, and actually saw it as just the latest move in a long list of questionable actions. He’s sent her flowers several times, showed up at her shows all across the country, and has been overall overbearing. The Young Money rapper reportedly filed for a restraining order against Khaled in the state of New York.
Although, could both of these artists be staging this whole drama? YMCMB publicity stunts certainly aren’t unheard of, as Nicki and Drake pretended to get married back in 2010 as a publicity stunt hoax.
Nicki still hasn’t spoke publicly about the ordeal.
Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy – “We don’t like the blacks either”
“Let’s milk this for all its worth. Let’s wait until this gay thing dies down a little, then I will release another statement that says that we don’t like blacks either. Now, they’re protected by those stupid discrimination laws so we’ll need to be careful, but I think it will work. I mean hey, it’s not like it’s a lie. We’ll have another Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day before you know it!”
When confronted, Cathy defended his comments:
“We are a private company with a deeply personal belief system. We are lucky to live in a country where we are allowed to practice those beliefs. We abide by all of the discrimination laws and we welcome colored folk in our restaurants. I even hire them to work in my restaurants. We do not discriminate against anyone because of their color. However, if I’m being honest, we really don’t care for them. That is my opinion and I have a right to express it.”
While Mr. Cathy does have a right to his opinion, his statement is sure to spark an outcry from the African American community, people who believe in equality and anyone with a modicum of intelligence. However, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, “the number of radical hate groups and militias has exploded in recent years” so he will likely find himself again with many supporters. In fact, “the number of radical ‘anti-government’ militia groups increased from 150 to 1,274 during the years of the Obama presidency. There have been more homegrown domestic terrorism attacks by right-wing groups than by international terrorists during his presidency as well…. [There’s] a generalized feeling that ‘this is not the country my Christian white forefathers built. We’ve got to take this country back.’” Since the vast majority of these groups are made up of right-wing conservatives, Cathy’s latest campaign will successfully establish Chick-fil-A as the official sponsor for right-wing hate groups.

JOE, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE,
NOW, IF YOU ADD ALL THOSE TICKET SALES UP YOU ARE TALKING BILLIONS!
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE 20/20 VISION TOUR WAS DUE TO KICK OFF IN MIAMI – HE CANCELED AND HE QUOTED:
“I REFUSE TO ENTERTAIN A STATE WHO’S GOVERNMENT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO SHOOT-N-KILL UN-ARMED TEENAGERS!”
Looking back to the mid-2000s, Max explained the The Byrdgang had a seniority system, which he believes was inspired by The Diplomats. “Jim [Jones], all of them. They was just fucking it up. They was under this impression—I think they all adopted this from Cam’ron—they were all into this impression that the new guys must pay the dues,” said Max B, who co-wrote Jones’ biggest hit to date in “We Fly High (Ballin’).” Max remembers stating his frustrations, after he was reportedly receiving $300 for his role in shows. “‘Number one: I [write] all the fucking records around here. Number two: all the records we producing in the studio—these are fucking singles you puttin’ out, radio spins! Where’s my shit? Why when I go perform at a show, and you making excess amount of dollars, you making [$10-15,000] how the fuck is you giving me $300? I’m doing eight, nine fucking records! I’m out here sweatin’ too! When you got drama and beef in different cities, and motherfuckers is throwing chairs on the stage—they throwin’ them shits at me too! I want money.’ This is what all the beef start stemmin’ from.”
While shows were one place of tensions, The Byrdgang’s ensemble recording schedules were another. “There was arguments, there was disrespect every night in the studio. To where, I didn’t want to go in. Some nights he had to call me: ‘Yo, come and work.’ ‘I don’t wanna go. I don’t like this shit no more.'”
“I got out on bail in 2007, summertime. My bail was like $1.5 million,” recalls Max B who spent early 2007 in Bergen County Jail awaiting trial for the murder charges he was later convicted of. “No way I think I’m gettin’ out. I’m thinking, ‘Who’s gonna come get me.’ But we found a way. My tangible songs, I was able to sell some publishing to those, for some money. When I got out of prison, my buzz got bigger, I became more recognized.” The tensions still existed in the studio, despite Max’s dire legal woes. “And when I came home this time, it was the same thing with these guys in the studio. No recognition, like, ‘Come on, give me my proper due. Where’s the etiquette here?'”
In the time Max B was out on bail, the Amalgam artist strategically timed his rise to fame with publicly announcing beef on his former mentor. “This time I was so flared up and angry. I had got some songs on the radio, and then waited till them songs got in rotation with [Funkmaster] Flex, and let everybody get a little glimpse of me this time, I put out another mixtape. And then once I knew I had the buzz, I went in the studio, stole a few more records, my records, and I started something I knew the city, the Rap game, was gonna eat up. I started a beef. I had to. It was me against the world.”
Since 2007, Max B has remained in beef with Jim Jones. French Montana, who included Biggaveli on his Excuse My French intro, also was involved with the dispute during Max’s incarceration.
