If anyone was close to a computer and was able to access Instagram or Twitter, then you would have been thoroughly entertained by the foolishness that is Rob Kardashian.
Rob finally realized that he has been bamboozled by his baby mother, Blac Chyna. It all started when Rob said he received videos of Blac Chyna with an alleged lover. Things only got worse from there….
Rob says Chyna dumped him as soon as his sister Kylie dumped Chyna’s baby daddy Tyga.
T.I also jumped into the madness adding his 2 cents.
Rob posted a SnapChat of him repo’ing Chyna’s whips.
Let’s pray that Rob finds peace and true happiness. Either way it’s an unfortunate situation.
Earlier this year R&B singer Trey Songz was arrested for assaulting a police officer in Detroit after his mic was cut during his set at Big Show at the Joe.
This week a judge ruled Trey’s SnapChat stories and mugshot can be used against him in court. Five days before the incident in Detroit Trey got kicked out of the MGM Casino, right here in D.C. and made a SnapChat story saying ‘F**k the police!” and put up his middle finger in his Detroit arrest booking photo.
Monday a judge ruled both the SnapChat story and the booking photo may be admitted to evidence to “show Trey’s disregard for police.” Trey’s attorneys had been in negotiations to lessen his charges but prosecutors decided not to offer a plea deal.
He is being charged with assaulting a police officer causing injury and aggravated assault, both felonies. The trial date is set for Sept. 12.
Albert “Prodigy” Johnson, solo rapper and a member of Mobb Deep, passed away at the age 42 on yesterday.
According to TMZ, Prodigy died in Las Vegas. He was in the city as part of the “Art of Rap Tour” with Ghostface Killah, Onyx, KRS-One, and Ice-T.
An official statement was released via his rep through Billboard.
“It is with extreme sadness and disbelief that we confirm the death of our dear friend Albert Johnson, better known to millions of fans as Prodigy of legendary NY rap duo Mobb Deep.” “We would like to thank everyone for respecting the family’s privacy at this time.”
Many fans, artists, producers, and members of the Hip-Hop community have expressed an outpouring of love and hurt for the legendary rapper. Everyone from Nas, Nicki Minaj, Q-Tip, A$AP Rocky, and more have taken to IG and Twitter to memorialize his passing. When you think of NYC 90’s/00’s hip hop, you automatically recall a classic Mobb Depp record. R.I.P Prodigy your legacy will continue to carry on.
As I speculated on Flood the Block Radio, about a new possible JAY-Z album, the latter was confirmed earlier this week. The project 4:44 is due June 30 and will be exclusively through TIDAL and Sprint.
Now it has been reported that he will be heading on the road in support of the new project.
According to Page Six, the tour was originally planned for this Summer. “It was originally planned for summer but has been moved to fall because of the kids.”
The last time JAY hit the road was with Beyonce for the “On the Run” tour in 2014.
