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 shouldn’t 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.

Drake And Diddy Reportedly Fought In Miami Last Night

This weekend was not the best for Drake. After being accused of dating Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend Karrueche, sources confirm that Drizzy got into a fight with Diddy. A witness told MTV News that the two tussled at LIV in Miami, while wrapping Art Basel at a party for DJ Khaled.

While the Internet has begun to buzz about the altercation having to do with Diddy’s girlfriend Cassie, the source asserts that the incident had nothing to do with her. MMG’s DJ Sam Sneaker also took to Twitter with details regarding the fight, alleging that Drake’s shoulder was dislocated, landing him in the hospital:


So far, Drake and Diddy have remained silent about the ordeal. Stay tuned for details as they come.

Rapper Beanie Sigel shot at Jersey Shore

Rapper Beanie Sigel was shot this morning in Pleasantville, N.J., and was being treated for a “life-threatening injury,” police said.

Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, was found about 9:25 a.m. inside a home on the 800 block of Spruce Ave.

A bullet had hit Sigel’s abdomen and exited through his back, said Pleasantville Chief Jose Ruiz.

Ruiz said investigators were waiting to question Sigel about the shooting. Another injured man found at the home was uncooperative. The second man, who refused medical treatment, was believed to be a friend or relative of Sigel’s, Ruiz said.

“He hasn’t offered anything,” Ruiz said, “and we’re waiting for Mr. Sigel to be able to speak to us.”

Investigators found ammunition and bullet casings outside the home.

It was unclear who shot Sigel or what he had been doing in Pleasantville, a community across the bay from Atlantic City.

Sigel, 40, has had a long history with the law. In 2003, the rapper was charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault after allegedly firing six shots at a nightclub door. Two people were injured. He was later aquitted. In 2005, he served 10 months in prison on weapons counts.

In 2006, Sigel was shot multiple times during a robbery in Philadelphia but was able to drive himself to a hospital for treatment.

In August, he moved to a halfway house after serving a two-year federal prison term for tax evasion. Sigel had been scheduled to be released from the halfway house tomorrow.

Two weeks before he was scheduled to report to the federal prison – and hours after the release of his sixth album, This Time – Sigel was arrested on drug and gun charges during a traffic stop on I-95 in Delaware County. He later pleaded guilty to possessing a controlled substance.

Rappers React To Grand Jury Decision In Eric Garner Case

Eric Garner was placed in a fatal chokehold by the NYPD a few months ago. The whole incident, which occurred in Staten Island, was caught on video including an unarmed Eric pleading for officers to stop because he could not breathe. Shortly after the homicide, the NYPD Police Commissioner made a statement saying that chokeholds were against department policy. Today, just two weeks after a no indictment decision in the Michael Brown case, the same decision was made in reference to Officer Daniel Pantaleo’s actions.

Although a federal investigation by the Department of Justice will commence into the case, protests began in New York City at around 5pm. Protestors, including J. Cole, marched the streets yelling, “no justice, no peace” as well as “we can’t breathe.” I was in Manhattan today and from what I saw, the protests were peaceful and will hopefully remain that way.


The hip-hop community took to their Twitter and Instagram accounts to voice their opinion on the case. More below.
