Young Thug Associate Arrested for Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting

Friday, May 29th, 2015

youngthug-winfrey

Back in April, when an unidentified shooter let off at Lil Wayne’s tour bus after an Atlanta show, the smart money was on Young Thug being somehow involved. It appears the Atlanta police were thinking the same thing and they have now arrested Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, whom TMZ reports works as a tour manager for Thug, in connection with the shooting. As you probably know, Wayne and Thug have been involved in a public back and forth over the Carter 6 title, the affections of Birdman and the open spot as the rightful heir to the Iron Throne Cash Money empire.

Since he got out of jail, Meek has been giving us steady, calculated drops rather than flooding the streets with product, but it looks like that’s about to change as he has a new mixtape planned for June 5th called Meek Season.

Sad news today as it has been reported that Chinx, Coke Boys MC and close consigliere of French Montana, was shot and killed early Sunday morning in Queens. Chinx was riding in a silver Porsche near Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive when a shooter in another vehicle opened fire, killing the rapper and critically injuring a passenger. The senseless murder comes at a time when Chinx was well on his way to establishing himself as a notable artist in his own right after years of paying dues alongside French. We send our condolences to his friends and family.

Cam’ron Explains Federal Reserve Delay, Plans Solo LP for December

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Speaking to Revolt, Cam’ron explains that himself and A-Trak had to delay their Federal Reserve project because of their individual touring commitments, but he promises that the album is still on track to drop this fall. He also says that he may drop Purple Haze 2, which he reiterates will be his final solo album, in December, but that’s not set in stone. Since he’s working on an official color with Pantone, he may drop something related to that collaboration at the end of the year instead and leave PH2 for 2016. Either way something is dropping in December.

Kanye Changed The Name of His New Album

Monday, May 4th, 2015

Kanye took to Twitter yesterday to announce that he has changed the title of his new album to SWISH. At first I thought he was fucking with us or just tweeting without thinking, possibly gassed up by the ongoing NBA Playoffs. But no, in his very next tweet he says he might still change it again, but for the time being the title is SWISH. Which is a cool I guess. I have to say it’s better than So Help Me God, a title so generic I have literally had to look it up multiple times because it completely escaped me, including just now before writing this very post.

Suge’s Attorney Says Floyd Mayweather is Posting Bail

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Suge Knight’s attorney today shared his client’s bail strategy with reporters working the ongoing murder case:

“My understanding is that Suge’s going to be bailed out this coming week. We think Mr. Mayweather is going to win the championship and then come champion the day again. They’re good friends and there’s no reason he shouldn’t and we believe that will happen.”

I hear that.

UPDATED: Members of Floyd’s Money Team denied that the champ would be posting Suge’s bail.

At a performance in Orlando this past weekend, Nas told the crowd he’ll be dropping a new album this Summer. If he keeps his word, that will be his first new project since 2012′s Life is Good. After spending the last year or so basking in the glory of the 20th anniversary of Illmatic, I’d say that boy is about due.

One of two tour buses that Wayne and his entourage were rolling in following a performance in the Atlanta area was shot at multiple times. The incident occurred shortly after Wayne appeared at the club Compound and the buses were leaving the area. Apparently nobody was hurt, but police were called to the Mandarin Oriental hotel on Peachtree by someone in Wayne’s camp to report the shooting.

Meanwhile, in Wayne’s home state, Young Thug was getting boo’d during a performance.

UPDATED: TMZ reports that Wayne exchanged heated words with several hecklers in the club, some of whom were tossed by security, prior to the shooting.

Check out some video from the scene below.
