His fans said he offered hope, advocated self-improvement and financially invested in the community, which has long struggled with violent crime.

His debut studio album, “Victory Lap,” was nominated for best rap album at the Grammys last year and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard chart. He had two children, Kross and Emani.
Atlanta rapper 21 Savage has been arrested as of Sunday by immigration officials who say he is illegally present in the United States.
The rapper, whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, came to the US in July 2005 aged 12 and failed to leave when his visa expired a year later, officials said.
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman said he is being held for removal proceedings.

‘Love and Hip Hop’ star Yandy Smith got maced Sunday afternoon while protesting jail conditions.
The reality star was among the crowd protesting outside the Metropolitan Detention Center, a federal facility in Brooklyn, when the macing happened. Due to an electrical fire, the Metropolitan Detention Center has been without heat and electricity since January 28th.
During the protest, which was broadcasted live on her Instagram account, she would correspond with the inmates by telling them to bang on their windows as she asked questions. When she asked if they had not received their blankets, the banging was heard loud and clear. When she asked if the heat had not been cut on, they banged, which let us know they were still freezing.
Smith, who was visibly emotional, was outraged at reports from the New York City Mayor’s Office that the inmates were sent blankets and hand-warmers while temperatures were below freezing. The inmates confirmed that they had not received anything. The MDC has been without heat and electricity for about a week, putting inmates are risk for serious health issues. The New York Times noted that inmates with sleep apnea cannot use their sleep machines because there is no electricity, putting them at risk for a stroke. Without electricity, the inmates can’t call their loved ones nor can they request refills for their medication. They also can’t use their toilets and there’s no hot water. Visiting hours have also been canceled. This jail houses over 1,600 men.
This matter hits close to home for Smith, whose husband Mendeecees Harris is currently incarcerated on drug related charges. Smith was also hurt during the protest according to a video that was posted by her close friend.
Nicki Minaj returned to Queen Radio on Saturday afternoon and dropped a couple of remixes.
Then, she dropped a fiery remix to Drake and Meek Mill’s “Going Bad,” this time taking some shots.
“When you lose the queen, niggas friendly, dawg. It was just ‘back to back’ like Wembley, dawg,” Nicki raps. The line is obviously a reference to Drake & Meek ending their beef years after Drake’s “Back to Back” diss track.
She took a few more jabs in the song which you can listen to below.
On Monday (Jan. 28), Pepsi unveiled its highly anticipated Super Bowl LIII commercial, starring Cardi B, Steve Carrell and Lil Jon. The 60-second clip, titled “More Than OK,” centers around the exchange between a waiter and a customer at a diner. When ordering a Coke, the waiter asks, “Is Pepsi OK?” Carrell then appears in the booth behind her to show why Pepsi is “more than OK!”
To prove a point, he gets Lil Jon, who delivers his signature catchphrase, “O-KAYYY!”
Cardi B, shimmering in a blue and silver jacket, bursts through the doors while her hit “I Like It” plays. “Okurrr!” she says before grabbing a diamond-studded Pepsi can and walking through the diner!
Whew chile, Sammie is at it again, and this time causing some definite friction for the lovers in the bedroom with his latest single! The 31-year-old singer connected with rapper Lil Baby for a smooth track titled “Times 10.” In my MJ voice let me say, “you wanna be starting something”, and that is definitely what he has done, for the lovers of course. With over 20 years in the game, Sammie has always managed to keep the ladies mesmerized with his vocals and relate able music on experiences with love. This single takes me back, giving me 90s vibes, and I definitely feel this song will be on the playlist for every couple on Valentine’s night!
On the steamy track, he sings about reciprocating sexual acts with his love interest. “When you freakin’ me, baby, anything goes/But when you go down, I know you care and it shows/I’ll return the favor, baby, times ten…”
Honey Sammie out here just trying to let that future wifey know that he is not stingy in the bedroom!
Sammie took to Instagram recently to announce that in his forthcoming album, which will be dropping soon, he will be more open with us. He has always been pretty transparent in his music career, so it comes as no surprise.
“On my forthcoming album, I’m exposing myself. My triumphs, my losses. My lies, my infidelities, hell even me recently having my heart broken for the first time in my life….I was hurt while creating this album.”
I know ladies you are thinking after hearing “Times 10” it’s a bit hard to imagine Sammie having a broken heart, like who would want to break his heart?! After all, he is the first child star of the millennial which we all crushed over the years! Let that sink in.
