Rapper Casanova Leaves Fellow Rappers A Message as He Turns Himself Into Authorities
Looks like after Casanova made headlines yesterday, the Brooklyn based-rapper decided to turn himself into authorities. According to reports, Casanova was named along with 17 others in connection to a racketeering case. Casanova, who given name is Caswell Senior, 34, faces racketeering conspiracy, firearm possession, and conspiracy to distribute controlled substances as part of an indictment unsealed in Manhattan federal court Tuesday. The other 17 suspects in the indictment were already in custody. Casanova left this message on social media to help other rappers. The ‘Get The Strap’ rapper warns other rappers of being targets and maintains his innocence.
Rapper Casanova Wanted By FBI
Casanova (real name Caswell Senior) is wanted by the FBI. The FBI released an old mugshot of the 34-year old rapper with the caption:
“We are still looking for Caswell Senior, aka Casanova, in connection with this case. He has connections to both NY and NJ. If you have information about his whereabouts, please call us at 1-800-CALL-FBI.”
Reports say Casanova’s name was given to them in an indictment following the arrest and charging of 17 other alleged members of the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation.
“The violence and drug activity committed by these gang members threatened the safety of our communities and placed innocent lives at risk. But thanks to the partnership and hard work of all law enforcement agencies involved in this investigation, we were able to stop this violent criminal organization — and show that Gorilla Stone is actually not ‘untouchable.’”
They are asking for any help finding the rapper, but something tells us they are on their own with this one.
LeBron James Agrees To 2-Year $85 Million Extension With Los Angeles Lakers
Looks like LeBron James has just sealed the deal for another two year $85 Million Extension with the Los Angeles Lakers. This may seem like a no brainer for some, being that Jmaes helped the franchise win its 17th NBA championship but the official news surfaced Wednesday and the contract runs through 2023.
King James 16-year old son Bronny (LeBron James, Jr.) is a popular basketball player in his own right, for obvious reasons, and he’s caught the eye of many professionals already in the league. Rumor has it that he has plans to enter into the NBA League after high school as well. Talk about an entire WINNING! Congrats to LeBron James and his family!

Beyoncé Reportedly Being Subpoenaed In ‘Black Is King’ Legal Battle
Beyoncé is allegedly being subpoenaed in a lawsuit over her Disney film, ‘Black Is King.’ The lawsuit was filed by a resident of Shelter Island, a town where filming took place for the project. Beyoncé filmed on a historical site, Sylvester Manor, for a “substantial fee” and had them sign NDA paperwork. A resident by the name of Michael Gaynor is taking legal action. He says,
“I’m a very wealthy person, and I’m able to defend myself when I’m treated unfairly in my community. What we find so beautiful about Shelter Island is its historical nature, it’s a very simple place, untouched, but increasingly the fact is that if you’re wealthy on the island you’ll be treated one way, and it’s different for everyone else.”
Along with Gaynor’s claims, another resident spoke out and shares similar opinions about the matter.
“The residents here are sick of the town board. We think they give favors to elites like Beyoncé. They don’t care about the Ambulance Corps or the Meals on Wheels programs — they’re only for rich people.”
Reports say, Gaynor attempted to serve the subpoena to Beyoncé at her East Hampton mansion, but the court documents state:
“It has now been over a month since Beyoncé was served with the Subpoena, and she has not objected to any of the Subpoena .?.?. nor has she provided any justification for her failure to respond.”
“This Court should compel Beyoncé to comply .?.?. within 14 days issuing a warrant for a Sheriff to bring her to be deposed — or order her to pay costs, penalties, and damages.”
Beyoncé nor her team has commented on the matter at this time.

Boosie could use your thoughts and prayers and a couple hundred dollars from you, if possible.
As you know Boosie was shot in Dallas, TX last Saturday (Nov. 14) on his 38th birthday.
Since being shot in the leg, Boosie has been having a hard time recovering. The ‘Set it Off’ rapper posted a message on his new IG page:
“Yes I’m not doing that good I have a short amount of time to find a specialist doctor who’s work on fixing body parts, that cost hundreds of thousands…”
He said considering the cost he’ll have to pay, he’s charging $500 for promos.
Boosie’s manager confirms that despite having issues after the shooting, Boosie’s leg isn’t getting amputated. Despite all of the conflicting reports regarding his condition, we hear that he successfully underwent surgery and is home recovering.
Fresh Prince Reunion Special Allowed Original Aunt Vivian to Set the record Straight!
The Fresh Prince Reunion special went down yesterday on #HBOMax and the entire cast reunited to spill tea on what really went down during and after the success of the show.
The original Aunt Vivian we fell in love with, Janet Hubert, finally got a chance to share how she felt about being called ‘difficult’ by her former cast members and how it scarred her career. She also shared never before details about her personal life, abusive marriage and more!
She told Will Smith:
“What you didn’t realize either was I was going through a lot at home. You didn’t know. Very abusive marriage.”
She said she parted ways with the show after she was “offered a bad deal.”
“They said, ‘You’ve got two months and two weeks of work and you cannot work anywhere else.’ So that meant my salary was cut. I had a new baby and a husband who was out of work. So I said no. I did not accept their offer. I was never fired. So the misconception was always put out there. I was trapped. What could I do? So they said, ‘Okay, then we’re going to recast your role.’ And I said, ‘What can I say?’ I was hurt deeply, deeply.”
The #FreshPrinceReunion is now streaming on #HBOMax.
The beloved 90s sitcom, Saved By The Bell, returns with an all new reboot Wednesday, Nov. 25 to NBCUniversal’s new streaming service, Peacock, which launched back in July. Last year, NBC announced plans to reboot the nostalgic sitcom which originally followed characters Zack Morris, Kelly Kapowski, A.C. Slater, and Screech through high school and eventually, college and adult life.
This has certainly been a nostalgic time for television as many shows welcomed a reboot, as we saw with Gossip Girl and Charmed, or a new home for streaming like we saw with Netflix’s number of classic sitcoms like Girlfriends and Moesha. It was only a matter of time before Saved By The Bell joined the bandwagon of shows hoping to evoke that feeling of sentimentality.
Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Mario Lopez star in the new series, reprising their roles as Jessie Spano and A.C. Slater. John Michael Higgins also stars as Principal Toddman alongside the new class featuring Belmont Cameli, Dexter Darden, Mitchell Hoog, Alycia Pascual-Peña, Josie Totah and Haskiri Velazquez.
The Hollywood Reporter announced on January 6 that Josie Totah would star. Totah will play Lexi, described by Hollywood Reporter as “a beautiful, sharp-tongued cheerleader and the most popular girl at Bayside High, who is both admired and feared by her fellow students.” Totah, who came out as transgender in 2018, said at the TCAs that playing a transgender student on TV that wasn’t all about her identity was an incredible opportunity. “She’s in theater, she’s evil, and she just happens to be transgender…. I can’t wait for people to be able to see themselves onscreen in that way.”
Totah will be joined by original cast members and fresh faces in Hollywood. Most recently, Peacock released a first-look photo of Lark Voorhies reprising her role as fashionista Lisa Turtle in the revival.
Now, the reboot series has tapped rapper, Lil Yachty to recreate the catchy theme song.
Not everything needs a remix, but one thing about Lil Yachty’s team is that they always secure him a bag with countless opportunities in television, advertisements and now, Saved By The Bell. Not mad at it at all, though we do prefer the original. Is it a hit or miss?
We have high hopes that the show’s revival will not disappoint with a new plot that is relevant to today’s time and important issues. Tune into the all new Saved By The Bell Nov. 25 on Peacock.
Michael B. Jordan Is The New “Sexiest Man Alive!”
Michael B Jordan has officially been named the Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine.
“It’s a cool feeling. You know, everybody always made that joke, like, ‘Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get.’ But it’s a good club to be a part of.”
Now we have to say, the ladies have repeatedly made him their #MCM for his hot body in movies like Creed and Black Panther. This year, Jordan has become much more vocal, using his platform to demand inclusion for the black community in Hollywood and social injustices. We love it when he’s fine and intelligent! Congrats MJB!

TORY LANEZ OFFICIALLY PLEADS ‘NOT GUILTY’
Rapper Tory Lanez has officially pleaded not guilty Wednesday to using a semiautomatic firearm to shoot and wound “Savage” singer Megan Thee Stallion during an incident in July.
His lawyer Shawn Holley entered the plea on his behalf after a Los Angeles judge previously ordered Lanez to stay 100 yards away from Megan and surrender any firearms, a courtroom source confirmed.
