NEWS: Young Jeezy Arrested For Battery & More! [KingpinTV.net]

Jeezy was arrested in Atlanta late last week for battery, false imprisonment and making terrorist threats in an incident involving his son. 

Jeezy, née Jay Wayne Jenkins, turned himself in to police Friday (Jan. 3) after a warrant was issued for the impending charges stemming from Sept. 2012, when he reportedly attacked his son in a bathroom. The scuffle allegedly included Jeezy throwing his son up against a shower door, punching him in the face, then dragging him into a bedroom to punch him more.

According to law enforcement documents, the 36-year-old also threatened to kill his son, saying, “I will put a bullet in your head right now,” and, “If I could get away with it, I would kill you.”

The minor’s name has not been publicized, but he is likely Jadarius “Lil Jeezy” Jenkins, Jeezy’s 17-year-old son, who the rapper threw a lavish Sweet 16 bash for just two months before their alleged fight.

Meawhile, Jeezy was released from custody after posting $45,000 bond and has neither confirmed nor denied the altercation. He does however believe things will be cleared up, so says his lawyer. “We have no doubt this matter will resolve itself appropriately,” the attorney said. “At this moment, Mr. Jenkins is thankful for the support of his fans and the respect for his family’s privacy.”

NEWS/VIDEO: Jermaine Dupri Hosts So So Def Reunion, Kris Ross STILL Wear Pants Backwards! [KingpinTV*net]

Jermaine Dupri held a reunion party for his entire So So Def roster past and present in Atlanta. Some of the notable artists that the CEO/rapper/producer attend were Da Brat, Xscape, Bone Crusher and few others. Notable artists missing were Bow Wow and Jagged Edge.

But the standout of all was probably the most bankable of all artists that were in the label, KRIS KROSS. Who showed up looking very different, with one Kris looking like a banker from England and the other Kris STILL wearing his pants backwards. Not sure if it was just for the reunion as a throwback, or if it’s his actually his wardrobe.

NEWS: Shawty Lo’s Reality TV Show, “All My Babies Mamas” Officially Canceled! [KingpinTV*net]

After sustained criticism from outsiders, Oxygen has canceled plans to air a reality show starring the rapper Shawty Lo and his unconventional extended family, The Daily Beast reports. The program, which was to be titled All My Babies’ Mamas, drew sharp criticism for a concept that was believed to promote negative stereotypes about African-American families.

In one of several online petitions started against the program, whose existence was revealed via a leaked promo, critics condemned the show’s producers for exploiting the situation of Lo, who has 11 children by 10 different women.

Sabrina Lamb, author of the most popular petition — which drew over 38,000 signatures — said the show’s most egregious offense would have been its impact on the children.

“This show is about more than a rapper and his girlfriends,” she said in an interview with The Daily Beast. “This is a show about kids who had no choice in how they came into the world. This show sets them up to be ridiculed and made fun of. None of us should be OK with that.”

In addition to petitions, the conservative group Parents Television Council had promised to boycott All My Babies’ Mamas. Oxygen formally announced the cancellation of the program in a statement to the media following initial reports of the axe falling.

“As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special. We will continue to develop compelling content that resonates with our young female viewers and drives the cultural conversation,” said an Oxygen rep.

 

The special was being produced by Liz Gately and Tony DiSanto of DiGa Vision.

NEWS: Gucci Mane Openly Disses Nas Out Of Nowhere, Talks Money! [KingpinTV*net]

Rap beefs seem to be popping up all over the place, and one of the key figures in a couple of the more notable beefs is Gucci Mane, who is never afraid to speak openly, or hate openly.  In a recent video of a behind the scenes shoot following Rocko, one of Gucci’s affiliates, Mane had some unflattering things to say about Nas.

Rocko was discussing with the man filming the scenes how impressed he was with Nas’ numbers on his most recent hit album Life Is Good, and how it was accomplished with minimal marketing and promotion. 

Gucci then came into the studio and chimed in, and said that the Queensbridge veteran actually doesn’t have much, even saying “Nas fucked up right now.”  He then continued to talk about the rides him and Rocko has, and insinuates Nas has nothing. 

“Did Nas make 150 blood money first week off a mixtape? Yeah, blood money. Nas fucked up right now,” Gucci said in an interview posted on Complex.  He then continued, speaking to Rocko, “You got a Rolls Royce. I just bought me a … Don’t you got a drop top and your brother got one with the hard top? You got the white one and I am getting the black one?,” then asks, “ Nas got one?”

It will be interesting to see if Nas catches wind of this and bothers responding, or if any type of friction comes out of this.

**BREAKING NEWS** – Jermaine Dupri Get Lamborghini Repo’ed, Owes $80K! [TekniqueTheKingpin.com]

Not only was Jermaine Dupri’s mega-expensive Lamborghini repossessed recently — now, the people who fronted him the cash to pay for it are out for blood … claiming the producer still owes them $80,000 for the car. Premier Financial Services filed new legal docs in Georgia Superior Court, claiming Jermaine financed the white 2005 Lamborghini Murcielago in 2006 — worth $330,000 — and agreed to make 58 monthly payments of $4,323. According to the docs, Jermaine dropped $70,000 up front for the car and successfully made the majority of payments — but for some reason … he dropped the ball in 2009, and failed to pay the remaining handful. As a result, PFS repossessed the car and sold it off for $115,000 — and now they’re out for the difference … insisting they hemorrhaged $79,095 in the deal-gone-wrong, and they’re suing Jermaine for their losses. Calls to Jermaine’s rep were not returned. (TMZ)
