Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, aka Peewee Roscoe, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison over the April 26th incident in which he is said to have shot at two tour buses in use by Lil Wayne and his camp. Winfrey, an associate of Young Thug who worked as his tour manager, implicated Birdman in the hit attempt in testimony revealed in August, citing Wayne’s $50 million lawsuit against the his longtime benefactor as the aggravating factor. He also reportedly called a phone linked to the Cash Money boss after the shooting. So basically, your man snitched on Birdman and still ended up with 10 years in prison. Somebody didn’t think something through here if you ask me.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Winfrey received a sentence of “20 years, including 10 to serve in prison,” so he will presumably be on parole or monitored release following his incarceration. Birdman has denied any involvement with the shooting, and expressed a desire to help find the person responsible. I imagine that since a known associate of Young Thug has now been convicted of the crime, Baby will be cutting ties with the Atlanta rapper immediately.
Well would you just look at the lineup on this freaking song. I have to tip my hat to Alc for tossing these guys together over this track, but also for that title, because I’ve been actively trying to incorporate the word “jabroni” into my vocabulary over the last few months.
Hus Kingpin and SmooVth let a new one called Cocaine Diaries” fly. Produced by Ra, this is a primer for an upcoming joint project from the Winners duo.
Last night, Jadakiss joined Larry Wilmore’s Nightly Show panel to discuss the recent rash of student protests against racism and the lack of action by administrators that has gripped the country. Also present were Jonathan Butler, who helped bring national attention to the issues on the campus of the University of Missouri with his hunger strike, and TNS contributor Grace Parra.

On Tuesday night at XOYO in London, Kanye West consigliere, DONDA capo and Off White purveyor Virgil Abloh treated guests to a (mostly) full listen of “Fade,” that song Kanye debuted during the Yeezy Season 2 show in NYC back in September. Watch and listen above, but of course this means absolutely nothing as the song could eventually be reworked completely, or never be released at all. As Ye told Vanity Fair: That song I played has been a year and a half in the making and it may be still a year from being complete.
