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.

Although officers say Floyd resisted arrest, the video shows him pinned down to the ground with multiple police surrounding him as he screams, ” Please, please. I can’t breathe.”

The video has since sparked national protests with the latest coming from T.I, who is no stranger to advocating for African American rights.

The rapper is calling for Americans of color to come together to boycott retailers nationwide on July 7th in efforts to show the importance of losing the African American dollar.

T.I took to Instagram to announce what he is calling #BlackOut2020 by stating, “Nobody spends sh*t on this day. If you give af about the murders, lynchings, and oppression of people of color!! #USorELSE

While we cannot put a price on black lives, this movement is an act of solidarity meant to show legislators our power in numbers.

Stand up against police brutality on July 7th by refraining from making any purchases for the entire day.

T.I. Sued For $5M After Being Accused Of Defrauding Cryptocurrency Investors

Last year in 2017, rapper T.I. joined other hip-hop rappers to launch the new up and coming thing, cryptocurrency. He launched FLiK Tokens and now it seems a if the new venture didn’t work out so well. Now The King and his business partner with the tokens are being sued for allegedly defrauding roughly two dozen investors.

According to The Blast, Tip and his business partner, Ryan Felton, are being sued by a group of 25 investors who claimed they invested $1.3M into the new venture of Tip’s. They also said that Tip and Felton, used “social media, celebrity endorsements, and well-known industry experts to create the false impression that FLiK Tokens were a valuable liquid investment.” They also went on to say that they were under the impression that they were going to get Kevin Hart to join as the new face of the business venture and announce that he would be brought to FLiK token as a “owner of the business.”

The lawsuit also alleges that TIP and Felton hiked up the price of the FLiK Tokens once they got the money from the investors before they “dumped” their crypto-coins and then vanished. They said Felton created a new company that he said brought FLiK  “and speciously told investors that he had nothing to do with the new sham company.”

They also said, “Felton explained that the devaluation was caused, at least in part, because T.I. had given FLiK tokens to members of his family and friends who had sold massive amounts on coinexchange.com causing rapid devaluation.”

Now, the upset investors are suing T.I. and Felton for securities fraud. They’re asking for $5M in damages.

When it comes to her husband, Tiny Harris doesn’t play, whether or they’re on good terms or not.

Bernice Burgos learned that the hard way on Monday after getting in a social media spat with T.I.‘s estranged wife. It all started when the Instagram model posted a video of herself jamming to “Just Kickin’ It” by Tiny’s former group Xscape. Apparently, Tiny took that as shade and decided to let Bernice have it.

She commented under the petty video, see below:

It didn’t take long for Bernice to respond. Although she claimed she would not go back and forth via social media, she did offer to DM Tiny her number so that they can talk it out. In the same breath, she came for the singer’s look, saying that she doesn’t even look like the old Tiny from her Xscape days.

To wrap up all the shade, Bernice added that if T.I. was in fact laid up with his wife last night, then why was Tiny checking for her?

Adding fuel to the petty fire, Bernice liked a comment about Tiny committing adultery with Floyd Mayweather and liked another comment that read: “T.I. took vows, not Bernice.”

T.I. Shuts Down Haters Who Roasted His Tupac Inspired Outfit

Apparently, the internet decided to play a shady little game of “Who Wore It Better” between T.I. and Tupac following Tip’s performance at Pac’s Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Induction.

The self-proclaimed “King Of The South” performed “Keep Ya Head Up” and wore an exact replica of Pac’s outfit from the famous Death Row Records New York Times cover. A few folks on social media didn’t think Tip quite pulled off the look. One Twitter user even compared his vest to a woman’s bustier. SHA-DY!

https://twitter.com/NewarkIllmatic/status/850786533946904579

Since T.I. is known to keep his ear to the streets and them tweets, it didn’t take long for the “Whatever You Like” rapper to get wind of the comments. In response, he posted a side by side image of himself and Tupac in the matching outfits and shamed the younger generation for not missing the point of his wardrobe. “Ya’ll young, forever commentating, over-opinionated young muuuf-ckaz got sh-t to say ALWAYZ,” he writes in the caption.

He then draws a comparison to Rich Homie Quan‘s botched Biggie tribute where he forgot the words to “Get Money,” to further the point that millenials have no respect for those who paved the way. “Biggie sh-t went left because a muuuf-cka from YA’LL generation forgot the words,” he says of the incident.

 

 

Whew, looks like these comments really got under Tip’s skin. Despite the conflicting opinion on T.I.’s outfit, at least we can all collectively agree that he did Pac justice with his performance. Check out the clip below:

Black music’s elite was out and about during the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony that kicked off Friday (April 7) night showing homage to late rapper Tupac.

According to Billboard, Alicia Keys sang a medley of snippets of ‘Pac songs including “I Ain’t Mad at Cha” “Ambitionz As a Ridah” and “Changes.”

Snoop Dogg and YG performed “Gangsta Party,” Treach from Naughty by Nature did “Hail Mary,” and T.I. dressed up looking like Pac’s twin sang “Keep Ya Head Up.”

Snoop, who was friends with Pac, opened up the tribute saying reflecting on the 25 years since he was murdered, said, “When I sat down to gather my thoughts about my labelmate, my homie, my brother, there’s one thought I kept coming back to: that Tupac was an actual human being.”

He added: “While everyone now thinks of him as some thugged-out superhero,” Tupac was many things: “strong and vulnerable, hardheaded and intellectual, revolutionary and—oh yeah, don’t get it f—cked up—gangsta.”

Yaaasss!

 

Tupac was joined with a killer new class of artists including Pearl Jam, Journey, Yes, Electric Light Orchestra, Joan Baez and Chic’s Nile Rodgers, who was given the Award For Musical Excellence.

According to Rolling Stone, Pac is the sixth hip-hop artist to be inducted into the coveted Hall of Fame: Grandmaster Flash and Furious Five were inducted in 2007, Run DMC in 2009, the Beastie Boys in 2012, Public Enemy in 2013 and N.W.A. in 2016.

The entire Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony will air on HBO on April 29.

T.I.‘s latest alleged mistress has a lot to say about rumors that she wrecked his marriage to Tiny.

Bernice Burgos is over all of the chatter about her relationship with Tip, whatever it may happen to be.

Rumors about the pair began swirling after they started liking and commenting on each other’s Instagram pages. With reports of T.I.‘s marriage falling apart, many assume that it must have had something to do with Bernice–especially after there were unconfirmed whispers about an alleged rendezvous in Las Vegas.

But this weekend, enough was enough! According to TheJasmineBrand.com, Bernice went off after an Instagram user with the handle giselle30257 accused her of being a serial homewrecker.

“I had enough of the bullsh*t fake a*s stories! Always been a home wrecker? That home BEEN broken,” she stated on Instagram, The Jasmine Brand reports.

Without stating whether she actually has any in-person connection to T.I., Bernice contended that she doesn’t consider him to be married due to his recent separation. Of course, that opinion is based on a legally inaccurate argument.

“I’ve NEVER dealt with a married man in my life so please STOP trying to declass my character and my name!” she insisted. “Technically when a person files for divorce it’s saying they’re moving on with their lives & the marriage failed.”

She continued, “What happens after that is naturally both of them will find new ways to spend their time [and] new people to spend it with.”

It should be noted that two people who were once married are not legally considered single until after a divorce has been granted.

Before Bernice wrapped up, she referenced Tiny‘s dig at her dating history, stating, “NEVER have I been passed around I dealt with 1 man in the industry and now all of a sudden I’m a pass around?”
