6ix9ine Faces Life in Prison

Posted by YeezysWorld on 7:33 PM

6ix9ine is facing serious jail time following his arrest on racketeering and firearms charges.

According to a 17-page federal indictment, obtained by TMZ, Tekashi and his Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods were charged with six counts, including discharging a firearm while committing a crime, which carries a possible life sentence and a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison.

His ex-manager, Kifano “Shotti” Jordan, is facing the same six counts. On April 3, Tekashi, Jordan, Butler, and Walter robbed gang rivals at gunpoint, according to the indictment charges. A shooting occurred April 21 inside Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and Tekashi’s associate Fuguan “Fu Banga” Lovick is named as the shooter.

The indictment lists eight counts for an array of crimes to maintain the gang’s “power, territory, and profits,” reports the New York Daily News. Prosecutors claim that members of Nine Trey sold heroin, fentanyl, MDMA, and weed in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.

Tekashi appeared in court on Monday (Nov. 19) with his hands and feet shackled. His family, including his mother, were present during the arraignment. He was denied bail and will remain in custody pending trial.

Last week, Tekashi fired his entire team including his manager, publicist, and booking agent, and canceled his upcoming U.S. tour. During an interview with “The Breakfast Club,” he revealed his two fears. “Only two things I’m scared of in life, God first and the FBI,” he said.

Snoop Dogg cemented his place in Hollywood history on Monday (Nov. 19).

Four days before the 25th anniversary of his debut album Doggystyle, the rap icon was honored with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Dr. Dre, Quincy Jones, Pharrell, Ty Dolla $ign, Warren G, and Jimmy Kimmel were on hand to honor hip-hop’s OG. Dre took fans on a trip down memory lane in praise of his friend. “A true diamond in the rough. Snoop is just pure raw talent. Nobody sounds like Snoop,” he said. “His style and charisma made me feel like he was destined to be a superstar. He’s got that ‘It’ factor.”

With Snoop by his side, Quincy Jones also took the podium to salute his “nephew and slender homie.” “This man is very special in my life. I would not be up at 11 in the morning,” said the legendary producer. “I’m so enormously proud of everything you’ve achieved professionally and personally too. … You are not just an artist and an entertainer, you are a visionary and you deserve this star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and every other recognition that comes your way.”

Jimmy Kimmel brought the laughs during his speech. “I know you won’t remember any of this in half an hour, but you’ve been such a good friend to me and I want to say congratulations and thank you,” he said. “If there’s anyone who deserves Hollywood’s highest honor, it’s Snoop Doggy Dogg.”

Then it was time for the man of the hour to speak. He thanked his family, friends, and most importantly, himself. “I wanna thank me for being me at all times. Snoop Dogg, you a bad motherfu**er,” said Tha Doggfather.

After unveiling his star in front of the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard where Kimmel’s show is recorded, the 47-year-old entertainer posed for photos alongside his wife Shante Broadus, daughter Cori, son Cordell, and grandson Zion.

Snoop’s star is the 2,651st since the completion of the Walk of Fame in 1961.

6ix9ine and three of his associates are in federal custody after being arrested on Sunday night (Nov. 18), according to the New York Police Department and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.

The 22-year-old rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was arrested on racketeering and firearms charges. 6ix9ine’s associates, ex-manager Kifano Jordan (“Shotti”), Jensel Butler (“Ish”), and Faheem Walter (“Crippy”) were also taken into custody.

Last week, Tekashi fired his management team including Shotti and canceled his upcoming U.S. tour. During an interview with “The Breakfast Club,” he revealed his two fears—God and the Feds. “Only two things I’m scared of in life, God first and the FBI,” he said.

The “FEFE” hitmaker was recently given four years probation in his child sex case, but the judge warned him that he could be resentenced and face prison time if he didn’t stay out of trouble.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on Monday afternoon.

6ix9ine is gearing up to release his debut album Dummy Boy on Friday featuring appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and Tory Lanez.

The G.O.O.D. Music rapper called out “The Breakfast Club” hosts for making fun of his voice while promoting Power 105.1’s Change 4 Change charity radiothon, to which he also made a donation.

But Desiigner was not down with the disrespect and clapped back after the on-air moment. “I’m a grown ass man. You and Envy, I will slap the shit out y’all,” he said in an Instagram video. “Don’t play with me.”

He also issued a stern warning. “I’m doing something good for change. I’m changing the world,” he said. “Y’all ni**as making fun of my voice. Bro, I will beat the shit out both of y’all. Charlamagne, you won’t come back up here without none of your North Carolina ni**as. And Envy, guaranteed bro, I see you bro, you got a nice little family, bro.”

However, he still encouraged his fans to donate to the cause. “Still donate to mental health. Still donate to Power 105,” he said, while thanking Angela Yee.

Two years since their collaborative EP, Birdman and Jacquees are once again Lost at Sea.

The Cash Money duo explores uncharted waters on Lost at Sea 2, inspired by an experience on Birdman’s yacht when they were “literally lost at sea.”

Following the video for the first single “Presidential,” Birdman and Jacquees plan to release one video per week starting Nov. 20 through Dec. 18.

“When we do Lost at Sea, I get to flow different,” said Jacquees. “People know me for R&B but can hear that rap in there with the R&B on this. Stunna is one of the greatest. What I love the most is I get to show everybody a different side of my artistry and what I can do.”

Birdman shared praise for his young protΓ©gΓ©. “This young man is the future,” he said. “Lost at Sea is a vibe. It’s that Rich Gang lifestyle. The chemistry we had was right from the moment I met him. So, we did a full album this time, and we got three, four, and five already recorded. He’s my little brother. I do believe he’s going to be on the of the biggest artists in the game. When you listen to this, I want you to know that.”

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:42 AM

Yes Lawd! Anderson .Paak’s long-awaited album Oxnard is finally here.

The Aftermath signee delivers the follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed Malibu and the last album in his beach series. Executive produced by Dr. Dre, the 10-track set includes the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Tints,” plus appearances from Q-Tip, J. Cole, Snoop Dogg, Pusha-T, and BJ the Chicago Kid.

“This album is bringing the things that I’ve learned from going out and experiencing life outside of my comfort zone and outside of my natural habitat,” .Paak told Apple Music. “I had to leave and go into the bigger city, into the world, and learn all these things, and now I’m bringing it back to my home front.”

He credits Dre for allowing him freedom. “Dre is just trying to have the most fun,” he told EW. “I almost have to scale him back a lot of times. Like ‘Let’s go back to the hook, Dre!’ He just wants to make the craziest music ever. Yeah, it was pure creative bliss.”

To celebrate the album’s release, .Paak will host Andy’s Oxnard Carnival in his hometown on Saturday (Nov. 17) with free rides, food, and games.

Stream Mariah Carey’s New Album ‘Caution’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:18 AM

MC is back. Four years since her last album, the legendary Mariah Carey returns with her 15th studio album Caution.

Boasting 10 tracks, the hybrid hip-hop/R&B album features the Mustard-produced single “With You” as well as “GTFO” and “The Distance” with Ty Dolla $ign. Elsewhere, Slick Rick and Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes guest on the standout “Giving Me Life,” while Gunna delivers a verse on the trap-influenced “Stay Strong Love You.” Production comes courtesy of Timbaland (“8th Grade,” “Portrait”), Jermaine Dupri (“A No No”), Skrillex (“The Distance”), Nineteen85 (“GTFO”), and Poo Bear (“One Mo’ Gen”).

The album title was inspired by the title track. “The funny thing is I didn’t call it Caution because I’m, like, ‘Ooh, I am being cautious,'” Mariah told the U.K.’s Metro. “It’s just because of a song called ‘Caution.’ It’s more of a wary love song.”

As she releases the new project, the soundtrack to her 2001 movie Glitter has also returned to the charts in a big way. Thanks to her loyal “Lambily,” the album surged to No. 1 on iTunes Tops Albums chart, 17 years after the movie’s release.

Mariah will hit the road in support of Caution. Her 22-city “Caution World Tour” kicks off in Dallas on Feb. 27 and hits cities including Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto, Atlantic City, Philadelphia, and more through April 6.

TKO. Hip-hop and R&B’s biggest names align for Creed II: The Album.

Executive producer Mike WiLL Made-It assembles an all-star lineup for the official soundtrack to the Ryan Coogler-directed film. The 15-track companion project features collaborations with hip-hop heavyweights including Lil Wayne, J. Cole, Rae Sremmurd, Kodak Black, YG, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, ScHoolboy Q, and more.

Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell team up on “The Mantra,” while Nicki Minaj joins A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg on “Runnin.” Nas and Rick Ross unite for “Check,” and Ella Mai delivers the anthemic “Love Me Like That (Champion Love).”

“I approached the music by first watching Creed II and then creating a playlist of songs people could work out to, chill to, vibe to or to get them through any struggle which matched specific scenes in the movie,” Mike WiLL told Variety. “It’s important to show the new generation that soundtracks can be just as exciting as traditional albums if put in the hands of the right curator. After people hear the music, I want them to say movie soundtracks are back.”

Creed II, the latest installment in the Rocky franchise starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, opens in theaters Nov. 21.
