Update: according to Tweets from reporter Dean Meminger, Shmurda and the GS9 crew were arrested with 21 guns, pictured here. The two black guns (pictured here in close-up) were reportedly the ones Shmurda was personally carrying. The task force that made the arrests was investigating murders in the Canarsie and Flatbush areas of Brooklyn, and the prosecutor said that Rowdy Rebel, who was also arrested, was involved in a shooting and then performed a show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in the same clothes.

 Video inside Amber Rose Twerking For Bhris Brown

hiphop | By Carlton Black - 6 hours ago


Two of Hollywood’s hottest singles linked up at Supperclub early Friday morning for the usual turn up. Clearly, we are talking about Chris Brown and Amber Rose who were living the night life in Hollywood earlier today. It was a packed crowd and the two put on quite the show for the attendees.

Amber joined Chris on stage for a casual dance which went 0-to-100 real quick. Amber shook her cheeks on Chris’ groin area while he welcomed it with moves that complimented hers. The two went on to get a little touchy feely, then Brown took it to the next level as he started dry-humping her on stage. It’s quite the sight, hit the next two pages to watch the whole thing go down.

Amber Rose and Chris Brown as a couple coming soon?

On a side note, Chris Brown does backflips, sings, acts, got with Rihanna, Karrueche, your girlfriend, and Amber Rose? Kudos Mister Brown, kudos…

What the post says:

I just wanted to take time out to say I appreciate all of u who have supported my music over these past few years. A Lot of u have told me stories about how I have changed your life. You too have changed mine in ways that u can never imagine. Unfortunately, tonight is the night that I am actually moving away to Australia. Over the past couple years I have come to conclusion that this profession just isn't for me, so im going to venture out into new areas of life. I will always be an MC at heart, but this rap stuff just isn't for me. I hope Youguys can respect it. I've signed over my half of the funk volume label to my business partner Dame. I also wished Swizzz, Dizzy Wright and Jarren Benton good luck in their careers. Thank u all! I'm out. Sincerely, Marcus Jamal Hopson aka "Hopsin"

Iggy Azalea has just taken her feud with Azealia Banks another step further and she has slammed the rapper for being a bully, a bigot, and a miserable, angry human being.

The 24-year-old Fancy rappers comments come after Azealia said this in a radio interview on Thursday (December 18): The Grammys are supposed to be awards for artistic excellence Iggy Azaleas not excellent.

This is not the first time that the two rappers have feuded over Twitter.

Earlier this month, Azealia called Iggy out for staying silent on black issues like Ferguson and the Eric Garner verdict.

hiphop | By Avon_Barksdale - 6 hours ago


Joanne Chemisard, the aunt of late rapper Tupac Shakur, could be extradited from Cuba to complete her sentence for the murder of a New Jersey state trooper in 1973. She escaped prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba. Now that the U.S. has normalized relations with the country, authorities are hopeful she will be returned to an American prison. (New Jersey State Police / Facebook)

The aunt of late rapper Tupac Shakur could be extradited from Cuba after the U.S. moved to normalize relations with the country earlier this week.

Joanne Chesimard, who now lives in Cuba under the name Assata Shakur, was convicted of murdering a New Jersey state trooper in 1973. NECN reports that she escaped from prison and fled the U.S., eventually gaining asylum from Fidel Castro.


"Chesimard isn't the only fugitive down there wanted for a violent crime, and she's already been convicted, so it's a matter of bringing her back and sending her back to jail," the New Jersey State Police wrote in a post on their Facebook page. "There's other people that surround her that Castro has taken a liking to and it's been very, very difficult in their particular cases to have discussions to get them out."
Chesimard was the first woman ever to be added to the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists List, according to the L.A. Times. She was believed to be a member of the Black Liberation Army, a militant group that supported armed revolution against those who oppressed black Americans.

In May 1973, she was suspected in several bank robberies and pulled over by Troopers Werner Foerster and James Harper. The FBI said Foerster was shot execution-style. Harper was seriously wounded.

Chesimard was convicted in 1977 and broke out of prison in 1979 with the help of armed militants.

There is a $2 million reward leading to her arrest.

On Wednesday, the U.S. announced it would form diplomatic ties with Cuba after 50 years of hostility and open an embassy in Havana. This was accompanied by the release of American prisoner Alan Gross, who was arrested in 2009 for helping Jewish communities gain Internet access that bypassed government censorship.

 NBA Phil Jackson, Charles Barkley Exchange Shots Over Knicks Criticism

sports | By italiansteve - 6 hours ago

They were hundreds of miles away from one another, but Phil Jackson and Charles Barkley got into a little war of words on Thursday night.

Barkley, a TNT analyst, was calling the Knicks-Bulls game for the network.

Jackson apparently didn’t like what Barkley had to say.

The Knicks president tweeted during the broadcast:

*tweet embedded


Barkley responded at halftime by saying, “I can respect Phil Jackson ... But he’s too old to be tweeting.”

Barkley added: “He takes it personal when people talk about the triangle. ... You need players, the league has always been about players, and always will be.”

A minute later, Barkley concluded that...

*tweet embedded


Barkley is a longtime critic of the Knicks, but this season it’s hard to argue with anyone who is tough on the team.

New York fell to 5-23 with Thursday’s loss and is off to the worst start through 28 games in franchise history.

One issue for the Knicks, according to Barkley, is that their players in the final years of their contracts aren’t fully committed to the triangle.


“These guys aren’t trying to run the triangle and make it look pretty, they’re just trying to get numbers,” he said.

NFL Report: Mike Vick Says Playing for Redskins Would Be "Dream Come True"

sports | By italiansteve - 6 hours ago

At 34 years old, Jets quarterback Michael Vick believes he can still be a face of a franchise.

His one-year, $5 million deal expires in the offseason, and the chance New York's front office feels the same way about Vick and his capabilities is unlikely, which could leave the Virginia native back on the free agent market and searching for his fourth team since joining the league in 2001.

Vick's next home, however, would preferably be in the place where he grew up if the opportunity presented itself — telling Newsday that landing with the Redskins would be his most coveted destination.

"That's home,'' he said. "That's home for me. Don't get me excited. Don't get me excited.''
Vick later continued, saying he'd be open to playing for any organization, but the thought of returning to the area he played football during his high school and collegiate days entices him more than others.


"I'm open to playing for anybody that wants to win,'' Vick said. "But obviously, going back home, I mean, that'll be a dream come true. But I would hate to get my hopes up for something that wouldn't happen. So I can't even think about it right now."
It's never certain to say something would not happen with the controversy at the quarterback position for the Redskins this season, as it's been a week-to-week instance. Quarterback Robert Griffin III has yet to start and finish a game with a victory since November 3, 2013, while backup Kirk Cousins has thrown nine picks in five starts and Colt McCoy will finish the season on IR.

Vick hasn't been far off from the Redskins' quarterbacks in terms of performance this season, but he does believe his connection on the field with former teammate DeSean Jackson is different than any other quarterback in the league.

"I know his speed, I know his acceleration path, I know when he's coming out of his breaks," Vick said. "There's nobody that knows DeSean Jackson better than me."
If Vick finds his way to the nation's capital next season, becoming the future of the Redskins franchise obviously isn't a foreseen circumstance by any margin. Yet, he remains hopeful that day will still come.

"I can be the face of any franchise,'' he said. "Hopefully, there will be an opportunity for me in 2015. And that's what I'm looking forward to.''

NFL Defensive rookie of the year candidates: Aaron Donald, C.J. Mosley, or Khalil Mack?

sports | By Clyde - 6 hours ago


Rams DT Aaron Donald leads an impressive group of Defensive Rookie of the Year candidates.
As the NFL season closes in on the end of the regular season, ESPN Stats & Info looks at some of the leading candidates for the Defensive Rookie of the Year award.

DT Aaron Donald, Rams
Forget about Defensive Rookie of the Year for a minute. Donald has been one of the best defensive tackles in all of football this season.

Donald has 8.0 sacks while lined up as an interior pass rusher, trailing only Gerald McCoy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the most in the NFL this season (8.5) and Ndamukong Suh for the most by a rookie in the last seven seasons (10.0 in 2010).

Opponents have a Total QBR of 44 against the Rams in 388 dropbacks with Donald on the field. That would rank fourth in the NFL. The Rams have allowed a Total QBR of 74 in 147 dropbacks with Donald off the field, which would rank 31st.

Signature play: With just less than two minutes remaining in a Week 14 matchup against the Washington Redskins, Donald lined up as the left defensive tackle against right guard Chris Chester. Donald pushed Chester straight back eight yards as if the veteran werent even there and sacked Robert Griffin III.

ILB C.J. Mosley, Ravens
Mosley is another player whose numbers stack up against the best in the league, regardless of draft year.

Among all linebackers this season, Mosley ranks fifth in snaps (877), seventh in tackles (117), tied for second in interceptions (two) and 14th in disrupted dropbacks (10.0). All of those numbers are at least tied for first among rookie linebackers. The snaps and tackles lead all rookies.

Mosley has a knack for impact plays. He is one of three rookies with at least one sack, interception, forced fumble and fumble recovery this season. Bradley Roby of the Denver Broncos and Telvin Smith of the Jacksonville Jaguars are the other two.

Signature play: Mosley had a big fourth-quarter sack in Week 15 against the Jaguars, but his sack on "Monday Night Football" against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints might be the most impressive one to date. Mosley blitzed from his inside linebacker position, was held by center Jonathan Goodwin but still fought through for the sack. That knocked the Saints out of field goal range, and the Ravens eventually won the game.

OLB Khalil Mack, Raiders
Macks strong rookie season has flown under the radar during another rough year for the Oakland Raiders.

But the No. 5 overall pick, out of Buffalo, has led a Raiders defense that is above average in terms of defensive efficiency against the run and yards per rush. They lead the NFL in negative rushes allowed (69).

Mack alone has 27 tackles for a loss or no gain, the highest total among rookies and sixth among all defensive players. Mack trails J.J. Watt, Lavonte David, Justin Houston, Ryan Kerrigan and DeAndre Levy in tackles for loss or no gain. That is good company for a rookie to be in.

Signature play: Mack sacked San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick twice in a Week 14 win. On the second one, Mack lined up over the right guard, waited for left side of the line to collapse and showed great burst around the outside before he brought down Kaepernick to end the game.

Honorable Mentions
OLB Anthony Barr, Vikings:
70 tackles, 4.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and a rookie-high three fumble recoveries, including a scoop-and-score game-winner (on a fumble he forced) in overtime against the Buccaneers

ILB Chris Borland, 49ers: NFL-high 97 tackles since his first start in Week 7, when he took over for an injured Patrick Willis
:obamahmm2: All deserving imo

Image inside Jay Z And Beyonc 'LAWST' A $70M Bidding War On LA Mansion To 'Minecraft' Video Game Designer

hiphop | By Avon_Barksdale - 6 hours ago

Earlier this month, news broke about music’s power couple plotting on a luxurious Beverly Hills mansion priced at $85 million. But it seems like they weren’t able to lean on their status to win the bidding war on the home. According to a recent TMZ report, Jay Z and Beyonc lost out on the home to 35-year-old Swedish video game programmer Markus Persson.

Persson, who earned $2.5 billion after selling his company Mojang (creator of the popular video game Minecraft) to Microsoft, reportedly bought the 23,000 square foot home for $70 million. Although the couple made visits to the mansion plenty of times, they could not…or would not top his bid of $70 million.

Now that Los Angeles might be out of the picture, maybe the power couple will move to the U.K. to—you know—be closer to their new friends Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Sony TV Boss Dissed 'The Boondocks' Creator

movies | By goldenera - 5 hours ago


The Boondocks season 4 is the worst thing to ever happen to the series. Weeks before the season premiered, Aaron McGruder issued a statement that he was not involved with production in any way and now we think we know why.

It was strange to not see Aaron McGruders touch on the latest season of The Boondocks and it was greatly needed. The most recent and final season of The Boondocks was absolutely terrible and it should not exist. We recently had no real explanation as to why McGruder was not involved in season 4 of The Boondocks, but thanks to more Sony email leaks, we now have a bigger picture on what possibly transpired.

In an email exchange between Norm Aladjem (A. McGruders agent) and Sony executives, Aladjem demanded that the release of season 4 should in no way shape or form credit McGruder. Norm Aladjem stated the following regarding McGruders involvement with the final season of The Boondocks.

It would have only one purpose: to palm off Aarons good name and reputation regarding his lifes work by implying that he is associated with or endorses this season of the Boondocks.

Aladjem also warned Sony about what would happen if they did not pull McGruders name from the show before it premiered.

We will have no choice but to protect Aaron and his reputation by putting out a separate, contemporaneous release that separates and distances Aaron from this season. I do not think thats good for Aaron, or for Sony, or for the show.

A marketing officer at Sony Pictures Television paints a different scenario on what transpired. Sheraton Kalouria stated that it would be untrue for Sony not to credit McGruders involvement and that he was partially involved.

Head of Sony Pictures TV, Steve Mosko, completely slammed McGruder with the following statement.

fu*k em. Hes going to tweet sh*t anyway. The fight will create good press. Send it all my way. I wish he wrote this fast on show.

Whatever transpired between Sony TV and McGruder must have gotten pretty nasty, but here is what we figured happened.

Sony Pictures Television probably put a lot of pressure on McGruder to put out a new season of The Boondocks quickly. McGruder, who is somewhat a perfectionist, also loves creative control. With three great seasons under McGruders belt, I am quite confident that McGruder wanted to take his time and deliver another great season. The Boondocks executive producer Carl Jones once told me in an interview that studio executives can be a pain in the ass when it comes to deadlines. I think Sony Pictures TV grew impatient with McGruder and gave the responsibility of producing episodes to other writers. Aaron McGruder more than likely did not like his creative control being stripped away and wanted to distance himself from the final season.

A wise person once said this.

Do what you have to do, just take my name off of it, it wont be my vision.

The damning part about all of these emails is that Aaron McGruder already knew the final season would be sh*t before it even aired.

Article inside Bobby Shmurda Held On $2 Million Bail

hiphop | By Guvnor - 6 hours ago


The press conference for Bobby Shmurda and GS9′s indictment happened at 3:30 p.m., held by Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget G. Brennan. Bobby Shmurda was found with two guns, one on his lap and one lodged beside him in a car outside Quad Studios late last night, while three more guns were found hidden in the Studios stairwell, according to investigators. In all, 15 arrests were made and 21 guns were recovered.. Shmurda pled not guilty to currently-unspecified weapons and drug charges. Dean Meminger, Criminal Justice Reporter at NY1 News, was at the press conference and tweeted out photos of the guns that Shmurda and members of GS9 was allegedly busted with. Investigators say the crew owned considerable arsenal of guns for armed warfare. Bobbys next court appearance is Jan 29.

NYPD Commissioner Bratton was very stern while speaking about Shmurda and co., stating that life has no meaning to them and these are bad people, they shouldnt be celebrated. Bratton even went as far as to call them mindless thugs. Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan said Shmurda incorporated will be out of business for awhile and crack sales supplied the funds. They also blasted Epic Records for promoting them.

*tweet embedded


Bobby Shmurda and 12 other members of GS9 were arrested yesterday (Dec. 17) outside Quad Studios in New York City by NYPD. The arrests were a part of a long-term investigation by the agency and the New York Police Departments newly created Brooklyn South Violence Reduction Task Force that dates back at least to July, if not longer. Kati Cornell, director of public information for New Yorks special narcotics prosecutor states that a number of violent incidents as well as narcotics trafficking were took into account.

XXL has reached out to Epic representatives and Shmurdas lawyer and has not received a response. We will be updating this story as it develops.

 NBA The Struggle Cavs will now start Mike Miller at SG

sports | By ogballer32 - 6 hours ago

Mike Miller has missed the last seven games with lingering effects of a concussion. He notched four DNP-CDs before that, and is averaging just 12.2 minutes per game. Fortunately for the Cleveland Cavaliers, though, the sharp-shooting veteran is always ready when his name is called. Healthy enough to play for the first time since December 4, Miller will take the place of Shawn Marion as a starter in the Cavs game against the Brooklyn Nets tonight.

This surprising bit of news is courtesy of the Northeast Ohio Media Group. The consummate professional like Miller Marion reportedly took his benching in stride:

But not only will Miller be in uniform, sources say he will be inserted into the starting lineup at the two-guard position. Shawn Marion, who has been holding down the spot since the fourth game of the season, will come off the bench.

I just do whatever it takes to win, Marion told Northeast Ohio Media Group following the teams morning shootaround. Whatever coach needs me to do, Ill do it.

Marion was inserted as a starter for the fourth game of the season. The 36 year-old has been typically effective for Cleveland on defense this season, but is struggling to shoot from both the field and beyond the arc. The Cavaliers went 13-8 with him in the starting lineup.

Miller hasnt played enough to glean any meaningful concerns from his dismal numbers 30.4 percent shooting overall and 25 percent on three-pointers. He played at least 10 minutes in six consecutive games in early and mid-November, but fell out of favor a bit with David Blatt from there. It bears mentioning that Miller played 18 and 12 minutes, respectively, on the past two nights he was available perhaps an increased role for the former Memphis Grizzly is something Blatt has had in mind for awhile.

Theres been no word from Cavs camp on the means of this decision. While Miller will afford LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love with more space to operate on offense, hes not the defender that Marion is. On the flipside, shifting Marion to the bench could be in an effort to reduce James minutes load something the nearly 30 year-old four-time MVP recently stressed is necessary.

This is a somewhat strange move on the surface, but theres time to tinker for Cleveland. If Blatt has reason to believe that starting Miller and making Marion a reserve could help his team in the short and long runs, he should absolutely do so. Well see if hes right against the Nets on Friday night.

 Article inside 2 weeks after Beanie Sigel shooting, answers still elusive

hiphop | By Bundles - 6 hours ago

The crime has the makings of a movie script: Car chase. Gunshots. Famous Philadelphia rapper.

But the ending of the script - and the final clue that connects all the dots - remains missing.

Who shot Beanie Sigel?

The rapper is recovering at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City from wounds caused by a bullet that struck the abdomen and exited his back two weeks ago in Pleasantville, N.J.

Investigators say they have received little cooperation from Sigel's family and friends since the Dec. 5 shooting. Sigel is breathing with the aid of a tube and ventilator, and is unable to speak to investigators. Hospital officials said his family has asked them not to release information on his condition. Police last reported it to be critical but stable.

Detectives have searched two cars in connection with the case. One is a silver Lincoln, which was struck by at least two bullets, police said. It was found a block away from the 800 block of Spruce Avenue, where the shooting occurred about 9:30 a.m. Sigel's brother-in-law, Umar Salahuddin, 22, who lives on the street, told police the car belongs to him and was stolen during the incident.

Person of interest

The second car is a gray Honda Odyssey, which officers chased after seeing it flee the scene. A mile into the pursuit, a passenger, Ricky Childress, 31, jumped out of the moving car. Officers stopped to attend to Childress and later found the car, unoccupied, less than a mile away.

Childress, of Atlantic City, was questioned and eventually released, but police said he remains a "person of interest." The car he jumped out of is registered to Sigel's sister-in-law, Kamilah Salahuddin, 33, police said. It's unclear who was driving the car. Investigators have been unable to locate Kamilah Salahuddin, Umar's sister, and consider her a person of interest.

Lack of cooperation from Sigel's relatives, authorities say, has complicated the investigation. Detectives are relying on forensic evidence such as ballistics and fingerprints to piece together what happened.

'Two people'

"When you have a crime of interpersonal violence, there are two people who clearly know what happened: the suspect and the victim," Pleasantville Capt. Sean Riggin said Wednesday.

"When we don't have one of them" and the other one can't talk, he said, "that's going to have an obvious detrimental effect."

Pleasantville police have wavered on whether Sigel was an intended target.

Four days after the shooting, Lt. Danny Adcock said that Sigel was involved in something out of his control and that Sigel was at the "wrong place [at the] wrong time."

Later that week, however, Riggin said investigators were still determining whether Sigel was a target.

"We don't know who the intended target was," he said.

Riggin maintained that assertion this week.

He said ballistic evidence was found at the home where Sigel was discovered bleeding in the finished basement, but he declined to say whether an exchange of gunfire occurred. The home belongs to Umar Salahuddin, who is also being looked at for his involvement in the case.

Sigel had been staying at the home after a stint in a federal prison in Pennsylvania for tax evasion.

Sigel, 40, whose real name is Dwight Grant, grew up on Sigel Street in South Philadelphia and was nicknamed "Beanie" by his grandmother.

As a student at Delaplaine McDaniel Elementary School, he was a good storyteller, he told The Inquirer in 2012.

"You would get 10 or 20 spelling words," he said, "and you had to write each one in a sentence. But instead of just writing a sentence, I would write a story."

Sigel came out with albums such as The Truth, his debut in 2000, and This Time, released in 2012, mixing tales of time behind bars and expensive tastes in his lyrics.

For all his success, he also ran into trouble. In 2006, he was shot when a group of men tried to rob him in Philadelphia, police said.

In 2012, Sigel was arrested on drug-possession charges in Delaware County. That same year, he reported to federal prison in the tax-evasion case.

A news release prior to his incarceration said: "Rap star Beanie Sigel to release 'This Time' " - a reference to his album - "just prior to doing time."

Sigel's family could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Anyone with information on his case should call Pleasantville police at 609-641-6100.
