However, after checking the 26-year-old rapper’s car, police only retrieved 7 highly advanced paintball guns.

Before cops showed up, The “Futal Shuffle” rapper hopped on Instagram Live to show off one of his paintball guns that shot several rounds at once and even joked about the police showing up.

Uzi and his friends were later released and cited with tickets for their destructive behavior.

Recently, the rapper accidentally posted topless photos of herself laying on a couch on Instagram before quickly deleting them from social media.

Cardi just finished celebrating her 28th birthday in ATL where her once estranged husband Offset, surprised her with a costume Rolls Royce Truck.

The WAP rapper recently filed for divorce earlier this month after nearly three years with Offset in what she described as an “irretrievably broken” marriage in court docs.

It looks like Travis Scott has been treated very well since his latest Cactus Jack collab with McDonald’s because the rapper is sharing the wealth!

Now before you get too happy, just know he isn’t sharing his $50 million net worth, but he is buying fans PS5.

Recently, A fan tweeted the Cactus Jack artist saying, “aye Travis, I lost my PS5, could you hook it up?”

The rapper, who recently scored a No. 1 song on the hot 100 for his collab with M.I.A, responded, “That I can make happen!!!.”

 

The funny thing about all of this is that the lucky fan got lucky trolling.

He couldn’t have lost the console because it hasn’t even hit stores yet.

That’s right! Sony confirmed that the PS5 releases in all stores on November 12th, so he couldn’t have lost the console because it hasn’t even hit stores yet.

This isn’t the first time that Travis has hooked his fans up with some freebies.

In 2017, the rapper gave a fan one of his iced out rings for rapping all of the lyrics to his song, ‘3500’ at a concert.

I guess we can all agree that it sure does pay off to be a Travis fan!

Shortly after its release, many fans took to social media to point out that the Chicago rapper took shots at Tekashi 6ix9ine.

In his verse, Durk says, “I’m in the trenches, relax/Can you not play that lil’ boy in the club? ‘Cause we do not listen to rats.”

This isn’t the first time Lil Durk has publicly dissed 6ix9ine.

Durk first called the Brooklyn rapper a rat while speaking to Rob Markman on Genius’ For the Record series.

“You know what you did. If you not like that man, then stay away from these streets,” he said, referring to 6ix9ine’s Racketeering case where he gave information on former gang members, Anthony Ellison and Aljermiah leading to their convictions.

Back in June, 6ix9ine, who was fresh off his Nicki Minaj collaboration “Trollz” hitting No. 1, called out multiple rappers, including Durk, for not being able to reach his level of success.

“Laugh Now Cry Later” will appear on Drake’s next album, CERTIFIED LOVERBOY, set to drop before the end of the summer.

The City of Philadelphia is making strides in the right direction!

On Wednesday, Mayor Kenny announced that Philadelphia will waive all protest-related code violation notices issued from demonstrations surrounding police brutality.

Related: Philly Morning Show Receive a Citation From The City of Philadelphia

The waiver applies to any code violation notices given out between May 30 and June 30, including those for all forms of disorderly conduct as well as failure to disperse and curfew violations.

“My decision to waive these violations is not a statement on the validity of the individual citations,” Kenney said. “Rather, it is a recognition of the core concerns that caused thousands to demonstrate on the streets of Philadelphia. In waiving these notices, I recognize that those issues are vitally important, that the pain of those marching is very real, and that their message — Black lives matter — needs to be heard every day until systemic racism is fully eradicated from this city and nation.”

Anyone who has been issued a CVN and hasn’t paid won’t be held accountable. Those who have already paid the CVN and would like a refund can contact OAR at 215-567-2605.

Now, this is not to get confused with a get-out-of-jail-free card!

Those facing criminal matters with the District Attorney’s Office will still be held accountable.

The track tackles issues concerning racism and police brutality, an on-going problem in the black community recently triggered by the death of George Floyd and other unarmed African Americans. 

Listen to Hip Hop 103.9 Live

Cole released his first single of the year after Chicago rapper and activist, Noname called Cole and other rappers out for not speaking up during the Black Lives Movement. 

“There’s a young lady out there, she way smarter than me. I scrolled through her timeline in these wild times, and I started to read. She mad at these crackers. She mad at these capitalists, mad at these murder police. She mad at my n*ggas, she mad at our ignorance, she wears her heart on her sleeve. She mad at these celebrities, lowkey I be thinkin’ she talkin’ bout me.”

In the track, Cole also condemns the Chicago activist for looking down at people like him who were not blessed to be as educated as her.

“Just because you woke and I’m not, that sh*t ain’t no reason to talk like you’re better than me,” raps Cole.

The rapper has since come under fire for his lyrics criticizing Noname, causing Cole to clear the air via twitter.

“Follow Noname. I love and honor her as a leader in these times. She has done and is doing the reading and the listening and the learning on the path that she truly believes is the correct one for our people. Meanwhile, a n*gger like me just be rapping.”

A Philadelphia Whole Foods is under fire after terminating two employees for speaking up against giving free food to cops during the height of George Floyd protest.

Last week, Megan Murphy and her fellow employees were upset when they learned that their store’s team leader decided to give police officers free food and water while policing Black Lives Matter protests.

The decision caused many employees to protest the downtown location by sharing a post on social media, urging customers to call the company to demand them to stop serving cops.

Shortly after, Murphy says she was interrogated by Whole Food’s Global Asset Protection team for two hours before the decision was made to let her and another employee go.

Whole Foods has since released a statement alleging that Murphy was fired for a different post that was violent and offensive.

“We recognize employees’ rights to express themselves, however, we do not tolerate behavior or language that is obscene, abusive, threatening or vulgar directed towards Team Members or Team Leaders, and take threats of any kind very seriously,” a spokesperson for Whole Foods told Motherboard. “The Team Member was separated due to a major infraction, which we investigated after it was brought to our attention by fellow Team Members. We have a zero-tolerance policy for any retaliation, and we followed standard company practices when investigating the Team Member’s infractions and throughout the separation process.”

However, many of Murphy’s former co-workers believe that the company has been trying to get rid of her for a while since she was pushing union status

Last week, the music industry announced #Blackout2020 for June 2nd to protest the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and other African Americans who died under the hands of the law.

The blackout is a day where businesses are to disconnect from work and reconnect with communities affected by injustice.

Senior Director of Marketing at Atlantic, Jamilia Thomas released a statement saying, “The music industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. An industry that has profited predominantly from Black art. [We] are obligated to protect and empower the Black communities that have made [the music industry] disproportionately wealthy in ways that are measurable and transparent.”

Among Atlantic, labels including Columbia, Def Jam, Interscope, Sony, and Warner Music Group have also joined the cause.

Despite its initial purpose, the movement has since expanded beyond the music industry, with everyone on Instagram now participating in the blackout.

On Monday, videos surfaced of the 46-year-old African American man being strangled to death by an ex-officer — who is seen on camera with his knee in Floyd’s neck for allegedly forging a check.
