NEWS: Bobby Shmurda Arrested For Drug Possession & Shootings! [KingpinTV.net]

Brooklyn native and up-and-coming rapper Bobby Shmurda was arrested alongside his group GS9 last night in Manhattan. Upon leaving Quad Studio in Times Square the NYPD Brooklyn Gang Task Force had concluded a lengthy investigation which allegedly involved numerous weapon complaints and narcotics trafficking.

The NYPD hasn’t revealed any information yet as its a closed document case. But various sources reveal $52,000 worth of crack (262 grams of crack), a pound of marijuana, $40K in cash, 3 hand guns, and an AR-15 Riffle were apprehended.

His attorney Howard Greenberg claims this is “a bunch of bullsh*t”. Claiming that Bobby’s only crime is fame. This is due to Howard’s claims that the government hates rap, and by extension rappers.

Bobby broke into the scene earlier this year for his record “Hot Nigga”, which was a remix to Lloyd Banks’ “Jackpot.” He’s also successfully released an EP titled Shmurda She Wrote. Stay tuned as more information is revealed.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday. 

Shumurda was arrested in October for smoking a jointwith two friends while double parked on a Brooklyn street … and in June for possession of a weapon.

UPDATE: 4:39 PM

Details emerge on Bobby’s arrest. A press conference at One Police Plaza was just held with Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan & Commissioner Benjamin Bratton. Officers had confiscated 21 firearms during the course of their investigation with 10 being confiscated last night, which Prosecutors alleged were purchased via crack sales. The NYPD detailed that this was an ongoing investigation which had lasted over two years. Bobby has plead not guilty on conspiracy to commit 2nd degree murder, conspiracy to commit 2nd degree assault, and gun & drug charges.

Bail has been set at $2 million. If found guilty Bobby could face a mandatory minimum 10 year sentence which extends up to life. His GS9 counterpart, Rowdy Rebel featured on a slew of hits including the “Hot Nigga” remix, is facing more serious charges. Prosecutors allege that at one point Rowdy shot a man in Brooklyn and then performed immediately after in the same clothes at the Barclays Center. Fifteen members of the crew currently sit behind bars.

This is ultimately a crusade against rap music. The NYPD is placing some blame on Music Execs. who sign these artists, saying rap music glorifies and encourages misogyny and violence. Stay tuned as more details emerge.

NEWS: The Real Reason Diddy Punched Drake In The Face! [KingpinTV.net]

Diddy assaulted Drake early Monday morning because of a feud over a song.

As we reported, Diddy punched Drake at LIV nightclub in Miami Beach, and we were told it was because Diddy felt disrespected by the rapper, and now we know why.

Our sources say, producer Boi-1da had given both Diddy and Drake a song to record more than 8 months ago. We’re told Diddy sat on the song, which frustrated Drake because he wanted to record it. So recently Drake recorded the song on his own and it did well, which pissed Diddy off.

According to our sources, the song that sparked the fight was “0 to 100/ The Catch Up” which was just nominated for two Grammys — Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.

Diddy saw Drake at LIV Monday for the first time since the song was released. Sources close to Diddy say he confronted Drake, who just blew him off, and that’s when Diddy said, “You’ll never disrespect me again,” and then punched him.

We’re told Drake ended up at an ER because in the ruckus he hit his shoulder and exacerbated an old injury.

NEWS: Details On Beanie Sigel Being Shot! [KingpinTV.net]

Philadelphia rapper Beanie Sigel has been shot after an apparent fight outside a Jersey Shore home, police tell NBC10. His attorney believes the rapper was not the intended target.

The shooting happened around 9:45 a.m. outside Sigel’s home along the 800 block of Spruce Avenue in Pleasantville, New Jersey, police said.

Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, was hit in the back, his attorney Fortunato Perri, Jr. told NBC10. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition and is currently in surgery. Police originally believed Sigel was shot in the stomach.

Perri, Jr. said Sigel had just returned home from dropping his kids off at school when he came upon some sort of physical altercation near his house. The attorney said it appears Sigel was not the intended victim.

The 40-year-old rapper was released from federal prison in August after serving a two-year sentence for tax evasion. The Internal Revenue Service said he owed more than $728,000 in back taxes.

He was moved to a halfway house in Philadelphia after his release. His probation ends on Saturday, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The rapper was wearing a monitoring bracelet on his ankle at the time of the shooting, police said.

In 2013, Sigel was also sentenced to six to 23 months in prison after pleading guilty to a drug possession charge in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

Sigel was formerly signed to Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records before the two rappers broke ties following a public fight.

This isn’t the first time Sigel was shot. He was hit in the arm during a 2006 shooting in Philadelphia.

NEWS: Jay Z Buys Company His Favorite Champagne “Ace Of Spades” [KingpinTV.net]

In the late 90′s, you would be hard-pressed to find a more ardent proponent of high-end Champagne Cristal, than Jay Z. Fast forward to 2006, however, and things took a very negative turn when Frederic Rouzaud, managing director of Louis Roederer, the company that produces Cristal, had some not too kind words for his new found Hip-Hop clientele. When asked if Cristal’s growing association with Hip-Hop could tarnish the brand, Rouzaud replied: “That’s a good question, but what can we do? We can’t forbid people from buying it. I’m sure Dom Perignon or Krug would be delighted to have their business.”

After years of trumpeting the product (presumably with no compensation), Jay Z took great offense at those comments and staged a very high profile boycott of Cristal and the Hip-Hop Nation followed him. Since then, Jay has become a business unto himself and luxury companies like Hublot and Barneys have gladly welcomed an association with his brand…and paid handsomely for it. That likely has been satisfaction sweeter than the taste of Cristal for Mr. Carter, but today, he’s taken a step that is likely even more satisfying. For the 8 years since his boycott of Cristal, Jay has been name-checking Ace of Spades as his Champagne of choice and now, he is the beverage’s proud owner. Sovereign Brands, former owner of Ace of Spades released the following statement:

“We are proud to announce that Sovereign Brands, a New York-based wine and spirits company owned by the Berish family, has sold its interest in the Armand de Brignac (“Ace of Spades”) Champagne brand to a new company led by the globally renowned Shawn “JAY Z” Carter”…We have had a wonderful relationship with Jay Z throughout the years since he first discovered Armand de Brignac. He became interested in owning the brand and made us an offer we simply couldn’t refuse.”

Salute to Jay Z who now truly does “spit vintage flows.” (AFH)

CONCERT VIDEO: T-Pain Performs An Intimate Acoustic Concert Without Autotune, Amazing! [KingpinTV.net]

T-Pain’s fingerprints are all over pop, R&B and hip-hop. He wasn’t the first musician to use Auto-Tune as an instrument — he noticed it on a Jennifer Lopez remix, and remembers “Deep” well — but it was, as he says, his style. For a while, in the mid-2000s, he lived at the top of the charts. He dominated that brief moment of our lives when ringtones were a thing. He was celebrated as an innovator, and he happily took his talents where he was invited, which was everywhere.

But somewhere along the way, somebody got it twisted. “People felt like I was using it to sound good,” says T-Pain, in an interview that will air on All Things Considered. “But I was just using it to sound different.”

He just turned 30, but T-Pain has already done enough to drop a greatest hits albumnext week. We asked him if he’d grace the Tiny Desk without any embellishment or effects to show what’s really made his career: his voice, and those songs. (NPR Music)

SET LIST

“Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)”

Suge Knight and Katt Williams got busted today for allegedly snatching a camera from a female photographer in Beverly Hills.

The alleged incident went down back on Sept. 5 outside a studio … according to the L.A. County D.A.

Katt was arrested this morning when he showed up in court for an assault case — and TMZ obtained Suge’s mug shot (above on the right) … taken after he was nabbed in Las Vegas. They were booked for robbery.

Both men have lengthy rap sheets … and as a result the D.A.’s Office says Suge could face 30 years to life in state prison — while Williams could be nailed for up to 7 years.

NEWS/VIDEO: Drake Rushes Back Into Club After Friend Gets Punched In Face! [KingpinTV.net]

Drake threw a whole lot of cash away Sunday … but he wasn’t making it rain — the rapper was rushing into a club he had just left in a fury, looking like he was ready for a fight.

Drake was celebrating his birthday at Club Stadium in Washington D.C. Saturday night/early Sunday … and we don’t know why, but Drizzy was carrying what looked like thousands of bucks.

Some people inside the club claimed they saw someone punch a member of Drake’s crew … which could have triggered his temper. The rumour right now is it’s his DJ, Future The Prince (we hope not cause that’s our fam). We’re still trying to find out more.

Someone in Drake’s entourage was heads up enough to retrieve most of the loot.
