After a week behind bars, Rick Ross is a free man. The MMG mogul has been released from jail after posting $2 million bond.
He was arrested on June 24 and charged with kidnapping, aggravated battery, and aggravated assault. The arrest stemmed from an incident involving a confrontation between Ross and a groundskeeper at his home, formerly owned by Evander Holyfield. He allegedly pistol-whipped the man with a Glock 9MM pistol, causing injury to his jaw, neck, and teeth.
TMZ reported that during Ross’ bond hearing in Fayette County, Ga. on Wednesday the judge approved his release once he posted $2 million bond including $1 million equity from the ex-Holyfield mansion he owns and another local property, $500,000 surety bond (from a bail bondsman), and $500,000 in cash.
Ross’ attorney promised that the rapper would forfeit the entire Holyfield property to the county if he intimidates or threatens any witnesses.
According to Billboard, Meek Mill is heading for his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Industry forecasters suggest his latest release, Dreams Worth More Than Money, could move over 200,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 5. That should easily place the set atop the Billboard 200 chart when its top 10 is unveiled on Wednesday, July 10.
Meek Mill’s last album, 2012’s Dreams and Nightmares, debuted and peaked in the No. 2 slot with 165,000 sold in its first week, according to Nielsen Music. The album’s latest single — “All Eyes on You,” featuring girlfriend Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown — debuts at No. 81 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
Rihanna releases the long-awaited video for her Urban hit “Bitch Better Have My Money,” in which she co-directed alongside Megaforce. Rihanna also just made history by becoming the the first and only artist to sell 100 million digital sells. Congrats RiRi!!!
