Jay-Z Addressed Meek Mill’s Prison Sentence During His Dallas Tour Stop

Jay-Z had some thoughts to share on Meek Mill’s harsh prison sentence.

After speaking out against the sentence on Facebook earlier this week, Jay addressed the crowd during his concert in Dallas on Tuesday night.

“He caught a charge when he was, like, 19,” Jay told the crowd. “He’s 30 now. He’s been on probation for 11 years. F—ing 11 years. Judge gave him two to four years because he got arrested for being on a bike and popping a f*cking wheelie.”

“This 4:44 album is all about us moving forward, moving past it,” he continued. “In order for us to move past the shit we going through, we have to address it. Everyone has to be just as outraged, [we] can’t look at it as a black and white issue, we have to look at it as a human issue.” 

 “Black people in particular, we have to get our shit together. We not second class to anybody, we’re equal to everybody. We deserved everything that everybody else gets — stop selling yourself short.” 

Check out what he had to say below.

 

Via Bilboard:

On Monday (Nov. 6), Meek Mill was sentenced two to four years in state prison for violating probation stemming from a 2008 gun and drug case. Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley, cited a failed drug test and a failure to comply with a court order restricting his travel as her basis for sentencing. 

The hip-hop community rallied behind the Wins and Losses MC and decried her egregious decision on social media. While T.I. and Nipsey Hussle left encouraging messages for Meek suggesting that he remains positive, rap luminary JAY-Z was critical of Brinkley’s decision, dubbing it “unjust and heavy handed” in a Facebook post.

Meanwhile, Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina vows to appeal his client’s ruling and tackle Brinkley’s decision, citing that she has a personal vendetta against the Philly rapper. “She’s enamored with him,” Tacopina tells Billboard. “She showed up at his community service for the homeless people. She showed up and sat at the table. She’s a judge. You could pull any judge in America and ask them how many times they’ve showed up at a community service for a probation and the answer is zero.”

Tacopina spoke to Billboard about what he called Brinkley’s “infatuation” with Mill, how she requested that he re-record a Boyz II Men song and shout her out, and how she wanted him to leave Roc Nation to sign with a friend of hers. These are edited excerpts from the conversation.

     Little Richard Hints He’s No Longer Gay

At age 84, Little Richard is opening up about his love for God and how despite people being gay or bi-sexual, the Lord still loves them. In the past, the rock ‘n’ roll legend described himself as ‘gay’, but now says he’s dedicating his final years to living holy “like Jesus”.  He also insisted men should live as men, and women should live as women, the way God intended.

“Give everything you’ve got to Jesus and you’ll feel oh, so much better.”

He continues,

“You know it’s just like everybody is turning one way or the other. This man here, when I first came into show business, they wanted you to look like everybody but yourself. And anybody come in show business, they’re gonna say you’re gay. Are you straight? Are you a homosexual something? They’re gonna say it. But the God, Jesus, made men, men, he made women, women, you know. And you’ve got to live the way God wants you to live. “

Richard, who no longer wears wig and make-up, also said that he believes if a person’s sexual orientation wasn’t in line with God’s design, that God is able to fix it.

“Regardless of whatever you are He loves you. I don’t care what you are. He loves you and He can save you, and He will save you and He can help you. He will help you. All you’ve got to do is say, ‘Lord, take me as I am. I’m a sinner.’ But we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. The only holy, righteous person is Jesus and He wants us to be just like Him because in order to go to Heaven, we’ve got to look like Him,” Richard said. “I don’t want to sing Rock and Roll no more. … I want to be holy like Jesus.”

Madonna Has Tupac Letter Ending Their Relationship Blocked From Auction

Tupac’s Letter To Madonna Ending Relationship Snagged!

Reportedly, a personal letter penned from the late Tupac Shakur to singer Madonna will no longer be put up for auction. A judge is said to have blocked the item. A spokesperson for Gotta Have Rock and Roll website and Lutz says,

“Madonna and her legal army have taken what we believe to be a completely baseless and meritless action to temporarily halt the sale of Ms. Lutz’s legal property. We believe that her intent is nothing more than to besmirch the good reputations of the auction house and Ms. Lutz. Madonna’s allegations will be vigorously challenged and refuted in a court of law in due course.”

The singer filed an emergency court order Tuesday in NYC to block the website gottahaverockandroll.com from selling the letter and a other personal memorabilia — including personally worn panties.

As previously reported, for years, it had been rumored that the pair had some type of relationship. And this letter,may confirm this. Written while he was in prison, Tupac appears to end their romantic relationship because of her race. He writes,

“For you to be seen with a black man wouldn’t in any way jeopardize your career, if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting. But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my ‘image’ I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was. I never meant to hurt you.”

He also hints that some type of disagreement happened between the two, over something that Madonna said about rappers and basketball players in an interview.

“An interview where you said, ‘I’m off to rehabilitate all the rappers and basketball players’ or something to that affect those words cut deep seeing how I had never known you to be with any other rappers besides myself. It was at this moment out of hurt and natural instinct to strike back and defend my heart and ego that I said a lot of things.”

‘Pac says that he still wants to be friends,

“I offer my friendship once again this time much stronger and focused. If you are still interested I would like to further discuss this with you but some of it couldn’t wait. I felt compelled to tell you … just in case anything happened.”

He also warns,
“Please be careful Madonna. Everyone is not as honorable as they seem. There are those whose hearts bleed with envy and evil. They would not hesitate to do you harm! Let my 5 bullets be proof of that!”

Madonna has not opened up to the public about the letter yet.

 

Kevin Hart Was Allegedly Caught Cheating On Pregnant Wife Eniko Parrish!

kevin hart allegedly cheating on eniko parrish

Is the fame and attention going to Kevin Hart’s head? Who knows.

The comedian just recently celebrated a birthday in Vegas and he was excited to share on his Instagram that his wife said “go have a good time”.

Well in the midst of having good times without the wifey around, the 38-year-old appears to have been caught cheating on Eniko Parrish, his PREGNANT wife of nearly a year, according to footage snapped by RadarOnline.com.

A video of the rendezvous reportedly shows Hart hooking up with a mystery brunette in a Lexus sedan outside his Miami Beach hotel around 5 a.m. on July 3.

The pair is said to have been exchanging some moments of passion for more than 20 minutes; at one point, the dad-to-be allegedly climbed into the passenger seat with his side chick!

“It’s obvious they were up to no good!” one insider told RadarOnline. “She kept looking over her shoulder, and Kevin was pop-eyed when another guest walked by.”

The pair had reportedly been partying together at Miami’s LIV nightclub earlier that evening. Parrish was nowhere to be found.

While Hart’s rep denied the cheating allegations, his own friends told RadarOnline that he may be on track for his second divorce.

“With his wife at home pregnant, Kevin’s behavior is way out of line. His friends are in total shock,” another source dished. “Eniko needs to be stress-free and feeling safe and secure. It’s disgusting that Kevin is doing this to her.”

 

This wouldn’t be the first time Hart’s been accused of cheating on Parrish: Back in February, an unnamed woman claimed Hart was unfaithful during a night out in Philadelphia, where he was filming the movie Untouchable.

Hart’s ex-wife Torrei has also accused the actor of cheating WITH Parrish while she was married to him, alleging “(Eniko) was his mistress and one of the reasons that broke up my family.”

Though the allegations of his infidelity are well-known, the source continued, “It’s still shocking that he seems more interested in chasing women than spending time with his wife.”

What are your thoughts on this? Is the fame taking Kevin Hart off course of what matters the most? I mean this is his second marriage so maybe he would rather be single during this time in his life, but with a new baby on the way, you would think he would be kicking back.

“What you’re seeing in regards to my relationship with 2Pac is not true. My relationship with Pac would have shown people a true—what he truly was. ‘Cause it’s one thing to see Pac’s persona, publicly, and who he was personally,” she said.

“I thought it was just handled in a very disrespectful way, and I felt like it was exploitive of me and Pac, how they used our relationship to sell a movie, and I just felt like it was tomb-raiding in regards to Pac,” she continued.

Jada also felt like those behind the film their relationship to sell the movie to the public.

“And if you’re really saying that you’re honoring a man’s legacy, then honor his legacy. And if you don’t have the story, fall back until you do,” she chastised. “I feel like we, as black people, we have got to protect those individuals that we say are important to us, to our history and to our culture. We cannot expect other people to do that if we’re not willing to do that ourselves. Pac is precious to us.”

Watch Jada’s full response below (starting around the 16:45-mark).

DMX Charged with 14 Counts of Tax Evasion, Faces 44 Years in Prison!

Image result for dmx 2017

DMX messed with the IRS and now he faces decades in jail. He’s been hit with 14 counts of tax evasion.

via TMZ:

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in NYC says DMX has concealed his income for several years and is now about $1.7 million in the red to the IRS. According to the indictment, X had cash pouring in during the early 2000s from a slew of hits. The feds even name checked “X Gon’ Give It to Ya” in the docs.

They say he was avoiding using any personal bank accounts, and using accounts of surrogates — including business managers — and lived mostly on cash.

According to the docs, when DMX appeared on “Celebrity Couples Therapy” he was supposed to be paid $125,000 — but when he got his initial check the proper taxes had been withheld … which didn’t sit well with him. The feds say he went back to producers and demanded a new check for the full amount … which he got.

In the indictment, prosecutors say he listed his income in 2011 and 2012 as “unknown” … when in reality he’d made $353k and $542k, respectively. In 2013, he finally did report income … of $10k. That number was a little off, according to feds, who say he actually hauled in $250k that year.

If DMX is convicted on all 14 counts, he’s looking at 44 years in federal lockup.

Man….we hate to hear that type of news. Gheesh DMX.
