Yesterday the Grand Jury made the decision not to bring charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo for the choking death of Eric Garner. Now the Justice Department says that an investigation will be launched on a federal level through a statement that was released by U.S. District Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. Loretta Lynch says.. “Since the death of Eric Garner in July, our office has monitored this case carefully. At the outset, informed by prior experience and in keeping with the standard practice in these types of cases in New York, the local investigation proceeded first. As the Attorney General explained earlier tonight, because the local investigation has come to a close, the Justice Department will now move forward with its own independent inquiry to determine whether federal civil rights laws have been violated. The investigation will be conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. The investigation will be fair and thorough, and it will be conducted as expeditiously as possible.”

North Carolina’s own J. Cole has some lyrics on his new album “2014 Forrest Hills Drive” that have people talking. On a track called “Fire Squad” Cole somewhat calls out Eminem, Iggy Azalea, Macklemore and Justin Timberlake for possibly being culture vultures in Hip Hop. The rapper spit on the track .. “History repeats itself and that’s just how it goes / Same way that these rappers always bite each other’s flows/ Same thing that my nigga Elvis did with rock ‘n’ roll / Justin Timberlake, Eminem and then Macklemore.” “While silly nigga argue over who gon’ snatch the crown / Look around my nigga, White people have snatched the sound / This year I’ll be probably go to the awards dappered down / Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile/I’m just playin’, but all good jokes contain true shit / Same rope you climb up on. They’ll hang you with.” How do those lyrics make you feel?

Last night after the Grand Jury decided not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner many celebrities and artists took to social media to express themselves. One of those artists was Azealia Banks. Azealia made a few hot and fiery points while saying a few things on people’s minds. The rappers was quoted saying .. “The media is trying to scare black people into believing that our lives are worthless.” “I need to sit down with the NAACP and talk about how we’re going to fix this sh*t we call “Black America” cause it’s a f*cking mess.” “First reform needs to be public school texts books… The indoctrination of the young black mind begins in those school books.” “its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen… Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren’t huh?” “If you’re down to ride with us b*tch you gotta RIDE ALL THE WAY. ” Banks then sent a warning to T.I. who is always chiming in trying to fix Iggy’s problems. “AND I DARE THAT SHOE-SHINING COON T.I TO SAY SOMETHING.” -Banks Does Azealia Banks have a point or is she just talking?

A police officer shot a teen who opened fire in St. Louis Wednesday. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said that the officer shot his weapon 17 times after “at least three” shots were fired at him. Right now it is not clear how many times the 18 year old suspect was hit. The officer that shot the 18 year old was off duty and a six year veteran of the St. Louis Police Department. The officer was not shot or hurt and an investigation will decide if the officer was justified with his behavior. Ferguson is about 16 miles from where this incident happened. 

ebola

Teams that are responsible for burying bodies of deceased Ebola patients in Africa are on strike. Sources say teams in two districts of Sierra Leone have gone on strike because they have not been paid their weekly risk allowance. The specialized teams are required to handle corpses due to the virus still being active in victims after they have died. The teams are said to not have been paid their weekly salary of $100 in two weeks. Health worker Tamba Nyandemoh says they bury 17-35 bodies a day. Last week there were 121 recorded deaths and new infections in a single day.

lebron-james-doesnt-just-like-he-loves-the-new-lebron-12-shoes-from-nike

Forbes and it’s annual ranking has unveiled the top sports brands. For the third year straight Nike sits at the top and is worth about $19 billion. That $19 billion is a $2 billion dollar increase from 2013, and $2.5 billion more than ESPN. The question is who is responsible for keeping Nike on it’s throne? That answer is LeBron James. Sources say for the first time since 2007 someone other than Tiger Woods is at the top , and LeBron’s brand is worth about $37 million and brought in $53 million OFF the court last year alone from endorsements with McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Upper Deck, and Nike. The LeBron 12 was supposed to be released in October but due to cosmetic issues the shoe will be released sooner than later.

twitter-logo

Twitter is now suing the Department of Justice and FBI for the right to release information on the government’s surveillance of it’s users. The goal for the lawsuit is to achieve more flexibility regarding what the company can say about the government requesting personal information of Twitter users. Twitter Inc. claims their First Amendment rights are violated by being prohibited to share the number of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court orders the receive to give out personal information for national security reasons. Back in April Twitter sent their Transparency Report to the FBI but the Department of Justice rejected the report because disclosing information on national security letters is prohibited by federal law.

Fraud

A woman out of Georgia has been accused of filing a fake Georgia state tax return. Brigitte Jackson filed a return claiming she was owed over $94 million dollars. LOL! She never got her check and contacted the state revenue about the delay. After some calls were made agents cut her a check and told her to go to a bank inside of a supermarket to cash it. The entire tax sting was caught on tape. Jackson’s cousin Darrius White also allegedly reported $99 million in income and has been charged. Did they really think they would get away with this???

Remember Jordan Davis? The 17 year old who was shot by a man for his music being too loud? His killer Michael Dunn was found guilty of first degree murder on Wednesday. The 47 year old took the stand in his own defense in the case. The closing arguments of the case by prosecutor Erin Wolfson pretty much did it for Dunn. Wolfson and other prosecutors proved Michael Dunn shot with the purpose to kill when he fired 10 rounds into the SUV that Jordan Davis and three of his friends were in.

Jordin-Sparks-Jason-Derulo-split

More break ups continue to emerge as “Cuffing Season” has arrived! Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo reportedly have broken up and gone their separate ways. The two have been dating since September 2011 and were engaged last year but the two just couldn’t hold on any longer *cues awwws*. Sources say that Jason has been seen with a side chick by the name of Carmen Ortega. Although I have seen pictures of the two you never really know what is going on. Sources say that Jordin knew about the affair but decided to stay with Jason because he was her first. Girl ….

wizzzz

Wiz Khalifa finally speaks on his divorce! Pretty much Wiz is saying the divorce was over before Amber Rose caught him with another woman in bed. His statement clearly was “I just didn’t want to be married to her anymore.” Wiz doesn’t really believe he was cheating and explains how he already told his friends weeks before that the marriage was over. Amber is trying to earn over a million dollars from Wiz from a prenuptial agreement the two signed prior to marriage, she also wants full legal and physical custody of their one year old child Sebastian. Do you think telling your friends your marriage is over prior to divorcing justifies cheating??? Chile…

ja-rule1

Ja Rule says men wearing shirt- skirts is part of Hip Hop now! I know you have seen the fashion changing or repeating itself all the time, but lately in Hip Hop men have taken things a new route and embrace some sort of “feminization.” With male rappers wearing kilt skirts, painting their nails, using new words, and wearing shirt-skirts from a distance you might think something off the wall. Ja Rule addresses this topic and says “You know what? If You wanna shirt-skirt, go head get you a shirt skirt. Cause this is your generation.” Ja Rule says he does look back at some of his old pictures and wonder what the hell he was wearing then but he says it is apart of being young and growing up. Ja also adds that he doesn’t think this generation is looking at it as “feminine” but more so “fashionable.” Honey I’m all for fashion and please believe I am all for anybody expressing themselves through clothing, but grown men just should not be painting their nails anything but clear. I’m not even sure I’m okay with clear. LOL!

#McFactz: #RihannasPerformance #IggyAzalea has a #SCANDAL #VibeMagazine ENDS?!

rihanna

The NFL decided to cut Rihanna’s performance for CBS’s Thursday Night Football. Four days after Ray Rice was terminated due to domestic violence the CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus says “We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we needed to have the appropriate tone coverage.” The decision was most likely made due to Rihanna and Chris Browns domestic violence case a few years ago. The musical opener was replaced by a discussion with Roger Goodell’s recent comments about Ray Rice. Hm….

Does she or does she not? Word has been spreading that Iggy Azalea has a sex tape out!

Let’s wait this out and see what happens …

vibe

Vibe Magazine is no longer going to be printed! While the company employs over 100 people they have laid off 19 people in a “reduction of force.” Vibe will focus on the internet and their online property. I used to get Vibe Magazine in the mail and I loved that magazine so this is a big change over to digital! Vibe was founded in 1993 by Quincy Jones.

loveandhiphop

Love and Hip Hop Season 3 came to a close last night and the reunion show still ended with some drama. Part 3 of the reunion pretty much shows talks after fights with different perspectives. Benzino and Althea get a chance to discuss their views on their fall out from Stevie J and Joseline but Benzino kept coaching Althea to say “No Comment.” Joseline expresses that she will “beat your ass” male or female if she feels some type of way when she is upset and Stevie J asks Joseline to tell the producers that they are married. Hmm…anyway MiMi still defends her sex tape with Nikko and the audience and cast alone with viewers at home all voted and felt Nikko released the sex tape himself. Season 3 was full of drama but you just couldn’t help but watch..until next time!
