Suge Knight, Katt Williams Arrested for Robbery

Hip-hop mogul Suge Knight and actor-comedian Katt Williams were arrested Wednesday on “suspicion of stealing a camera from a female photographer,” according to Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Knight was taken into custody Wednesday in Las Vegas. Williams was arrested while appearing in court on a separate assault case. The pair are accused of taking the camera of an unnamed “celebrity photographer” in Beverly Hills in September and have each been charged with one count of robbery. If convicted, Williams faces up to seven years in prison, while Knight faces 30 years due to a prior conviction for assault with a deadly weapon.

This isn’t the first legal run-in for the duo. According to TMZ, Knight and Williams got into a fight at a Los Angeles nightclub hours after Williams was released from jail in 2012. One week earlier, the two received citations after a “disturbance,” according to TMZ. Williams was reportedly waiting in front of a Subway shop while Knight, who has acted as Williams’ tour manager, was getting a manicure/pedicure at a nail salon when police arrived. Williams was cited for parking too close to a fire hydrant. Knight’s ticket was based on outstanding traffic warrants.

In August, Knight was shot six times in the stomach and arm while partying at a Los Angeles nightclub before the MTV Video Music Awards. “People were screaming and yelling and most ran out immediately,” a witness to the scene told Us Weekly. “The floor was covered with glass from everyone dropping their drinks.” Despite being shot, Knight was able to exit the club on his accord and later laughed off the incident.

“One thing my father always taught me, no matter what it is, you never give up, you never quit if you start something,” Knight said. “When you walk in a place, you walk in one way and no matter what goes on, you leave the same — as a man. I was shot, and I wanted to make sure I got to the right place to patch some of these holes up.”

In July, Williams was sued by his former tour manager for assault and battery who claimed that Williams hit him “with such force and power that he was rendered unconscious for a period of 90 seconds.” The case is still pending.

Birdman Addresses Drake & Tyga Beef

G-Unit Member Kidd Kidd Says Those Who Hate 50 Cent’s Group “Hate Hip-Hop”

There’s a new G-Unit mini documentary making the rounds, and — surprise! — it’s full of outlandish statements from one of hip-hop’s best-known crews.

Relative newcomer Kidd Kidd, who joined the label in 2011 after getting shot six times, said that those who hate on G-Unit are really just hating on the entire game.

“The chemistry that we have is just… it’s ridiculous,” Kidd Kidd told the XXL video crew (via HipHopDX). “You’re not gonna hear that nowhere else. It’s nobody else that’s in our lane talking about the things that we’re talking about. Doing the things that we’re doing. And how we doing it. So, the reunion is perfect. You can’t hate on it. If you hating on it that mean you hate hip-hop. You know? That mean you hate the whole rap culture…If you hating on me, you hating on yourself. Because at one time you was me. You was me. You didn’t have nothing…I was that dude. And I got put in a great position. And who wouldn’t want to be here right now. Just the reunion period, man is great. It’s the perfect timing right now cause everybody went through they own differences. And as you can see it came back. That’s what brothers do.”
50 Cent also chimed in with a pretty solid point.
“Nelly, the St. Lunatics, Eminem and D12, were different setups because their lead artist out of those crews had music that was so effective that it took a large period of time before the record labels and other people wanted to hear everyone else that was connected to it,” 50 Cent said. “Like me, I was conscious of them because we had already been rapping together so much. The world is acknowledging 50 Cent as a talented artist. The rest of them are just there as sidekicks and just that they’re people that I pinpointed and selected as real talents. You heard me, Tony Yayo, and Banks’ voice in the very beginning. 50 Cent Is The Future, all those early tapes, mixtapes. My life is the backdrop to G-Unit. The energy that was connected to the entire brand is 50 Cent.”

Ray J Blasts Tyga Over Kylie Jenner Relationship Rumors

Earlier this month, reports began to pour in that Wayne put plans to release Tyga’s new music at a screeching halt when he found out about the possible fling and now Ray is giving his two cents.
Ray famously (or, infamously, however you look at it) dated Kim Kardashian, which might explain why he feels so passionately about Jenner’s dating.
“My girl like Blac Chyna, so Tyga need to get back with Blac Chyna,” Ray J told TMZ. “We fucking with her. He needs to stop fucking with little kids. Trust me, if he wanna fuck with a Kardashian he need to do it the right way. Believe that.”

The Game’s New Album ‘Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf’ Debuts At No. 7 on Billboard 200 Following Lukewarm Reviews

The Game released his latest album Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf last week and the album received overall lukewarm reviews. The album debuted No. 7 on the Billboard 200.
According to HipHopDX, Blood Moon sold 32,734 copies in its first week on the shelves. It was the first album from Game’s newly established label Blood Money Entertainment.

HipHopDX gave Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf 3 out of 5 X’s, similar to reviews previously reported.
“On his previous Jesus Piece, Game was able to take Trap, heavy features, new trends and weave them into an overarching theme of a thug persona struggling with his faith,” DX contributor Dean Mayorga wrote. “Now, with most of these very same components, he finds himself lost.”
The editors of hotnewhiphop rated the album at 73 percent, while the audience rating trailed behind at 66 percent:
While The Game has built up a reputation for putting out consistent albums, Year of the Wolf is, unfortunately, not one of them.
Game doesn’t quite get the respect he deserves. Sometimes things like his habitual name dropping and controversy divert attention from the fact that he has been one of the most consistent rappers over the last decade. Since the release of his debut, The Documentary, he’s delivered a series critically acclaimed albums, out-rapped many of his counterparts and at one point, was one of the only rappers popping on West coast. However, with the release of his latest effort, Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf, he’s offered another reason for fans to forgot just how good he is. From a production standpoint, Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf also falters. The Grammy Award-nominated rapper normally surrounds himself with stellar production. Here, Game seems more concerned with chasing trends like with the DJ Mustard produced “Or Nah” and the Mustard rip-offs “On One” and “Take That.” He rides the Atlanta wave on a cut like “Fuck Yo Feelings.”
