Tekashi 6ix9ine and his former associates are accused of running a gang.

Daniel Hernandez, better known as 6ix9ine, was arrested in New York City on Federal charges on November 18, TMZ reports and Pitchfork has confirmed with the U.S. Lawyer’s office. 6ix9ine’s ex-manager Shottie, born Kifano Jordan, and their affiliates, Faheem Walter aka Crippy, Jensel Butler or Ish, Jamel Jones, otherwise known as Mel Murda, and Fuguan Lovick aka Fu Banga were also arrested. They all face racketeering and guns charges. 6ix9ine said a week ago that he got rid of his entire team and canceled his tour.

As indicated by the eight-count indictment, seen by Pitchfork, Hernandez and alternate respondents “took an interest in the task and administration” of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. The indictment blames the alleged gang members for murder, burglary, ambush, drug dealing, and that’s just the beginning. Two of the charges Hernandez faces have a greatest punishment of life in prison. Pitchfork has emailed a delegate for 6ix9ine for input.

“As alleged in the indictment, this gang, which included platinum-selling rap artist Tekashi 6ix9ine, wreaked havoc on New York City, engaging in brazen acts of violence,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement. “Showing reckless indifference to others’ safety, members of the gang were allegedly involved in robberies and shootings, including a shooting inside the crowded Barclay’s Center, and a shooting in which an innocent bystander was hit.”

The gangbangers got charged on distributed drugs that included heroin, fentanyl, furanyl fentanyl, MDMA, dibutylone and marijuana all around Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx, according to prosecutors.

Many of 6ix9ine’s songs like his Billboard song “Gummo” include his claims about shooting people and other forms of violence. The artist is now in federal custody and is expected to be arraigned this Monday evening.

Stay tuned!

Davon Eddington was on the phone with his brother enjoying a beer in his own backyard. The pair was talking about the Lakers and LeBron James when Eddington casually quoted the infamous JAY-Z lyric, “I got 99 problems but a b—h ain’t one.”

A neighbor overhead his comment and came to the conclusion that he was beating his wife who was upstairs showering at the time. TMZ reports that police arrived to the scene with their guns already drawn.

Cops Called on Black Man for Singing JAY-Z's '99 Problems'

The situation was swiftly diffused once law enforcements learned that it was a big misunderstanding. Eddington explained how the incident went down in a video shared by TMZ.

“I end up walking around to the front of my house and I end up being met by police with guns drawn,” he says. “And another officer came running like, ‘No, no no, this is not how it happened. We kinda heard the conversation and he’s been on the phone the whole time.’ “It was like, ‘We apologize. It seems like you’ve been swatted.’”

Azealia Banks hopped on Instagram over the weekend to send a few direct shots at Kanye West.

She started off saying the Chicago rapper planned to steal a design that she created for him. Later on, she insisted that his wife, Kim Kardashian ruined him and will eventually leave him.

Addressing her Instagram live viewers, she said that Ye got upset that she sent him a heart emoji making it seem like it meant more than what it did. She proceeded to say the beauty mogul damaged the rapper and that we’re never getting the old Kanye back.

“He just does dumb shit on purpose for attention,” Banks says of the Yeezus rapper. “No clue what kind of role model he is trying to be for his kids by being a messy cunt. Truth is, Kim Kardashian ruined Kanye West and won’t be done with him until she’s sucked the last drop of blood,” Banks says. “We won’t be getting the old Kanye back ever. He is completely ruined.

Elsewhere in the rant, Azealia Banks she added fuel to the rumor that Kim K had an affair with Drake.

“Kim Kardashian is absolutely going to leave you,” Banks says in the video. “She’s already fucking gone. Say what you want to want about her, but in some sense, I’m feeling bad for her because you’re just a dummy. You just be acting dumb just to act dumb. Like, how is that sexy? I’m sorry. If I was Kim Kardashian, I would fuck Drake too.”

The Harlem rapper shared a Yeezy Modular Survival Kit which is the idea she said Ye tried to steal. In  case his fireproof community that he wants to build replicate Banks’ design, we know where we saw it first.

“Since everyone likes to drain me of my energy and runoff on the plug (me) – let me show you this genius product design I created for Kanye West,” she writes. “This is the YEEZY MODULAR SURVIVAL KIT. It contains an electric generator, a hot plate, a convection oven, a small cloth washer, and a mini-fridge. I came up with this idea as a disaster kit for camping. I designed it with Vadik Marmaledov for “YEEZY INDUSTRIES”.. kanye mentioned something about Kim Kardashian being jealous he was talking to me then ghosted, but I’m pretty sure it’s just sneaky Kanye’s way of trying to steal my idea and leave me out.”

A New Orleans man named Arthur Posey was literally arrested for saying he’s going to blow up the bathroom. As in he needed to take a s–t, but for some reason, someone thought that he was going to use a bomb.

Posey, 30, was at Willie’s Chicken Shack in the French Quarter of New Orleans when he made the alleged threat. The manager claims that that she got into a heated argument with Posey after lying and saying she didn’t know when the restaurant closed.

“Y’all about to close right now, because I’m going to get a bomb and blow this place up,” he said according to the manager. The Chicken Shack’s general manager advised her to call the police.

By the time the police arrived, Posey left but he was found at a nearby establishment. Although he explained that he simply wanted to use the bathroom, he was still charged with two counts of communicating false information of planned arson. Posey will also need to appear in court on Nov. 29 for a competency hearing.

According to TMZ the FEDS have evidence that could place Tekashi 6ix9ine behind bars for life. Following an interview with The Breakfast Club where 6ix 9ine exposed his former team, authorities allegedly alerted him that his ex-employees were plotting revenge.

TMZ reports:

6:54 PM PT — Legal docs — obtained by TMZ — detail some of the charges Tekashi has been indicted on and why prosecutors want the judge to deny him bail. Prosecutors say in April, Tekashi waited in a car outside an NYC office building and recorded while his manager and other associates robbed some of Tekashi’s rivals.

The incident where shots were fired at Barclays Center is also detailed … and describes earlier in the night, Tekashi was present while someone from his crew fired multiple shots at another vehicle. Finally, the docs describe an incident in July where Tekashi allegedly ordered a hit on a rival … a move that left one person shot in the foot.

The incident where shots were fired at Barclays Center is also detailed … and describes earlier in the night, Tekashi was present while someone from his crew fired multiple shots at another vehicle. Finally, the docs describe an incident in July where Tekashi allegedly ordered a hit on a rival … a move that left one person shot in the foot.

There’s also a photo of the gun recovered at Tekashi’s Brooklyn home back in September by the feds, an AR-15 style rifle.

 

4:49 PM PT — Tekashi has been denied bail for now and will remain in custody pending trial. His attorney, Lance Lazzaro, proposed Tekashi be released if he paid the court $750k, surrendered his passport and remain on house arrest, suggesting that he wouldn’t be a flight risk under those terms. Lazzaro’s request was shot down … but he plans to file an appeal with the judge during a bail hearing Tuesday.

Tekashi appeared calm in court, even though his hands and feet were shackled. His family, including his mother, was present during the arraignment.

3:30 PM PT — According to the 17-page indictment, obtained by TMZ, Tekashi is facing 6 counts … the most serious of which is discharging a firearm while committing a crime. That count carries a possible life sentence, and a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison.

His ex-manager, Shottie, is facing the same 6 counts.

Prosecutors say the acts of violence were intended to protect the gang’s drug biz, retaliate against rival gangs or promote Nine Trey’s rep on the streets.

2:55 PM PT — Tekashi and his crew conspired to commit a slew of crimes, including drug deals, armed robberies and shootings … according to the federal indictment.

The feds believe Tekashi himself pulled an armed robbery on April 3 along with his ex-manager, Shottie, and 2 other members of the Nine Trey Bloods. According to the docs, they robbed gang rivals at gunpoint.

The indictment also mentions the April 21 shooting incident at Barclays Center in Brooklyn … and fingers Fuguan Lovick as the trigger man.

The indictment, first reported by the NY Daily News, lists 17 counts dating back to 2013.

The feds also say Tekashi and associates were hawking heroin, fentanyl, MDMA and marijuana all over NYC.

Tekashi69, his recently fired manager and 2 other former associates are in federal custody after getting busted on racketeering charges — which almost certainly means the rapper’s going to prison … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us … 6ix9ine was arrested Sunday night by ATF agents in NYC, and the agents also hauled in his ex-manager, Shotti, at the same time. You’ll recall Tekashi had just fired Shottie and much of his management team last week.

One of the other suspects arrested is Faheem Walter — aka Crippy — who got shot a few weeks ago during the altercation with Tekashi’s record label head.

All 4 men are facing racketeering and firearms charges. We’re told the investigation was a joint effort by ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security.

It’s interesting, Tekashi was on “The Breakfast Club” just last week and admitted he only feared two things … God and the FBI.

Tekashi was already skating on thin ice. As we reported, the judge who gave him probation in his child sex case had warned him to keep his nose clean … or he’d be going straight to prison.

Whoever at Nike designed this latest pair of Air Max 97s must’ve been bumping “Lemon” by N.E.R.D and Rihanna, because the colorway chosen for these is sure to leave your eyes a bit acidic.



Arriving in what the Swoosh is branding as “Bright Citron,” this tasty AM97 release is far from sour, boasting a bold yellow hue on the upper, in addition to black and red accents featured throughout on the bold tongue tab all the way to the signature bubble-adorned midsole. The rest of the shoe keeps classic specs in place, including a sturdy, rugged texture and the Air bubble units on the inner midsole that give the shoe its name. Overall, these leave us with a pleasant taste, and we’re sure you all can agree.

Expect the Nike Air Max 97 Premium “Bright Citron” to arrive at the top of next month (December 1) for $170 USD at select NSW retailers and online. Take a closer look below:

After a stellar offering with Delivery 1 out of the Cali-based menswear retailer’s Fall 2018 collection, Beautiful Fül is back with another dose of fine-crafted Japanese denim, premium outwear and an collection of gear that’s rugged both in nature and overall quality.



Bringing back the Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man inspo that we saw in the previous set, the latest garbs pack a little more everyday wearability, especially when it comes to the French terry hoodies that utilize embroidered “cat” wranglers motifs. Another standout is the black Wrangler Flight Jacket, constructed from 100% cotton Japanese corduroy to keep you styling with the best of them without compromising a stitch of warmth. For those that can be a little more experimental with their personal style, a A 100% Italian calf suede trucker jacket is the route to go, and its cupro satin lining adds an even fresher feel that just embodies luxe vibes. No wonder they’ve got guys like Usher rocking their stuff!

Justine Skye spoke on her experiences with domestic violence on social media and in recent interviews.

The “Build” singer took to Instagram to explain the visuals to the song:

“As [Domestic Violence] Awareness month comes to an end.. the issue doesn’t just disappear. Recently I’ve had one of the scariest/heart breaking experiences in my life and it’s still hard for me to talk about. I felt stupid, angry, depressed.. blamed myself. Trying to figure out how someone who claimed they loved me so much could find such evil within themselves to hurt me mentally and physically. I had to find the strength within myself and I’m hoping that through this video I can motivate whoever else is going through this or worse, to do the same. You are strong, you are loved and you deserve so much better.”

As DV Awareness month comes to an end.. the issue doesn’t just disappear. Recently I’ve had one of the scariest/heart breaking experiences in my life and it’s still hard for me to talk about. I felt stupid, angry, depressed.. blamed myself. Trying to figure out how someone who claimed they loved me so much could find such evil within themselves to hurt me mentally and physically. Learned a lot about the people I chose to call my “friends”.. and about myself. I was one of those people who would be like “No man would ever put their hands on me! .. blah blah blah..” We all think we know what we’d do until it’s happening to you. Now, I’m not looking for sympathy and never thought this would be part of the story I’d be telling of my self.. unfortunately it is, but I won’t let it be what defines me. I had to find the strength within myself and I’m hoping that through this video I can motivate whoever else is going through this or worse, to do the same. You are strong, you are loved and you deserve so much better 💜 | Video link in bio

A post shared by 𝙅𝙪𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙚 𝙎𝙠𝙮𝙚 (@justineskye) on

The Brooklyn singer explicitly refrained from naming her abuser, but the Internet detectives identified him as Sheck Wes.

Fans began naming people who she was connected with and Skye subsequently liked a tweet that mentions the “Mo Bamba” rapper. “It’s probably tough as hell for her to watch her abuser’s star rise the way his has recently,” the user wrote.

After stirring up the pot, Justine Skye tweeted, “I never said who it was because I knew it wouldn’t matter to a lot of you,” she wrote. “It’s just something for you to talk about today. That’s just the reality of it. But I made a video about it in hopes that it can inspire someone else get away for their abusive partner.. That was my goal.”

Wes has not commented on the accusations.

Blac Chyna is all about her coin. She recently partnered with Whitenicious by Dencia for their forthcoming collection called “Whitenicious X Blac Chyna Diamond Illuminating & Lightening Cream.”

The product goes for $250 a jar, and the packaging is encrusted with Swarovski crystals. The cream is being marketed to both men and women of all skin types.

TMZ reports that Chyna has been using Whitenicious as a dark spot corrector for a few years to assist with her “hyperpigmentation.”

Chy reportedly felt confident about this new deal because she’s aware that women of color suffer from skin issues. However, she’s sure to receive tons of backlash for basically promoting European beauty standards to her community.

In other Blac Chyna related news, she is no longer receiving child support from her baby’s daddy, Rob Kardashian. But she’s clearly not hurting for money, as she just added another source of income.

Tory Lanez recently celebrated having the No. 1 album on Billboard rap charts with his junior album, Love Me Now? From the looks of one of his recent Instagram posts, he’s still living off the momentum of the project.

In a recent interview, the Toronto native teased that he had a “classic Lil Wayne verse” for the remix of his collection’s leading single, “Talk To Me.” “Watch your tongue for me as you talk to me, softly,” Weezy is heard spitting over the infectious beat.

There’s no telling when this remix will see the light of day. But does this sound like a classic Tunechi verse like Tory Lanez said it is?

Nicki Minaj hopped on the first thing smoking and took a trip all the way to Shanghai, China to perform for a music festival only to find out it was a big rip off.

Details of the entire ordeal have not been confirmed, but it appears to be one giant scandal.

Minaj arrived in China to play at the DWP China festival on November 18th alongside the likes of Blasterjaxx and Luis Fonsi. Although the organizers are blaming the 32-year-old rapper for not performing, a few days before she arrived in China the event’s website posted the following statement: “The event rumored to take place in Shanghai on 17th & 18th of November 2018 is an unauthorized use of DWP trademark. DWP as a brand, has no association with the event. The alleged lineup artwork of DWP China, which has been circulating online is unauthorized.”

Rumor has it that the Queen rapper was promised $3 million for the gig and was expecting 8,000 attendees, but there were only 1,000 in the small venue.

Nicki Minaj didn’t publicly comment on what really went down, but before jetting back to the states, she made this video for her fans and promised to be back with a “better partner.”

Diddy is clearly devastated by the shocking news of the death of his longtime ex-girlfriend and mother of three of his children, Kim Porter.

The model and actress was found dead in her home last week, and her cause of death will take at least 6 weeks to find out when the toxicology reports are completed. She was reportedly battling flu-like symptoms for weeks and complained about not feeling well before going to bed Wednesday night. There has been an outpour of condolences via social media since the news broke, and Diddy and his children finally spoke out.

“We were more than soulmates,” the mogul said in an emotional Instagram post. He continued to post archived footage of the duo sharing good times on his Instagram. He held a private memorial for her and there were reportedly hundreds of people in attendance including Pharrell, French Montana, Mary J. Blige and more.

The crib was filled with photos of Porter and her family and led by a candlelit walkway.

Taylor Swift is changing the game. The megastar has signed a new deal, which would move her to Universal Music Group. Variety reports UMG will be the “exclusive worldwide recorded music partner for Swift” with Republic Records serving as her partner. However, her new deal sparks a change for all artists as Universal will now realign the selling of Spotify shares owned by the company to provide money to their artists.

The terms of the deal are not stated by UMG or Swift beyond it being a multi-year deal. What Swift does detail in a letter that highlights the deal is the redistribution of Spotify equity.

“There was one condition that meant more to me than any other deal point. As part of my new contract with Universal Music Group, I asked that any sale of their Spotify shares result in a distribution of money to their artists, non-recoupable. They have generously agreed to this, at what they believe will be much better terms and paid out previously by other major labels. I see this is a sign that we are headed toward positive change for creators – a goal I’m never going to stop trying to help achieve, in whatever ways I can. I’m so happy to have Sir Lucian Grainge as a partner in these efforts.”

You can read the entire letter from Taylor Swift available on her Tumblr.

The running rumor throughout LeBron James’ career is that he called plenty of the shots within the organizations that he plays for. That has followed him to the Los Angeles Lakers, however, when asked about if his buddy Carmelo Anthony will be putting on the purple and gold, LeBron made sure to let everyone know that is not his call.

“I have no idea to be honest, that’s not a question to ask me,” LeBron said. “Right now, we have 15 rosters spots right? We don’t have a roster spot open right now, so that’s not a question for myself.”

Anthony’s time with the Rockets has come to a close and many teams are rumored to be interested. The Lakers are one, the Portland Trail Blazers and Philadelphia 76ers are among others. The direct reason for Melo’s departure is still a bit hazy. Anthony has not spoken regarding the team and all figures from inside the Rockets organization state Anthony was a good teammate and adapted to every role he was asked.

Currently, the Lakers are finding their stride on the court winning four out of their last five. In their latest win against the Miami HEAT, King James led the way with 51 points.

After a long, hard battle to become the first African American governor in the history of the sunshine state of Florida, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum as gracefully bowed out. Gillum, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Florida, conceded to his Republican adversary, former Rep. Ron DeSantis, on Saturday evening which ended the extended fight that saw the Tallahassee mayor retract his Election Day concession during a statewide recount.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat, in a video post, Gillum said, “R. Jai and I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Mr. DeSantis on becoming the next governor of the great state of Florida,” Gillum said in a Facebook video in which he appeared alongside his wife. “This has been the journey of our lives.”

The race was a hotly contested one that became symbolic of the nation’s issues with over race and class in the Trump era.

Those matters became a major focal point during the primary and escalated when DeSantis went on Fox News a day after the primary to extol Florida voters not to “monkey this up” by voting for Gillum.

DeSantis has been keeping a low profile ever since Election Day. He began to put together a gubernatorial transition team all the while there were demands for a recount.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has been everywhere promoting her new book and her work is already paying off. Her new memoir has already been moving plenty of units and it hasn’t been out a full week. Becoming reportedly has sold more than 725,000 copies on its first day making it one of the most successful book releases of the year so far.

The memoir also gave Random House, Crown’s parent company, its largest debut sales numbers of 2018. The company released a statement to the public that says, “Based on extraordinary account demand across all channels, from mass merchandisers to independent bookstores, the publisher has already gone back to press for an additional 800,000 hardcover copies, which will bring the total number of copies in print in the U.S. and Canada to 2.6 million. “

Describing her book on her website it says, “In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms.”

Much success to the First Lady Michelle Obama!
