NEWS: 2 Chainz Robbed At Gunpoint, Shots Fired! [KingpinTV.net]

San Francisco police are investigating a brazen Sunday afternoon robbery involving rapper 2 Chainz. The G.O.O.D. Music hip hop star was reportedly robbed in broad daylight and shots were fired during the incident, reports TMZ.

A source with the SFPD told TMZ that they received a call about gunfire just after 4:30 pm PST and when they arrived on the scene the rapper did not want to fully cooperate. Chainz would only tell law enforcement that his wallet was stolen and he was fine.

According to the surveillance video from the scene, 2 Chainz appeared to be the intended target and was seen fleeing with his entourage like “cockroaches running from a flashlight.”

2 Chainz was in town to perform at the annual 106 KMEL Summer Jam concert in Oakland. He tweeted reaction to his performance at the show, but did not mention anything about the robbery.

The SFPD is currently going over video from the crime scene to identify suspects.

UPDATE – 9:17PM: TMZ initially reported that 2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco, but SF police spoke to Radio.com and said a member of 2 Chainz’s entourage, and not the rapper himself, was the victim. The rapper’s group was approached by a man with a gun, who fired a shot into the air. Everyone fled the scene, but one poor bastard fell down and the perpetrator proceeded to “rob him of an unknown item.” The suspect is still at large, and cops say all involved in the investigation “are being very uncooperative.”

NEWS: Ja Rule Gets Released From Jail! [KingpinTV.net]

Ja Rule was released from an upstate New York prison yesterday morning (February 21) after serving nearly two years for an illegal gun possession charge. The former Murder Inc. superstar now awaits word from the federal government on when he will begin his 28-month sentence for tax evasion.

The rapper, born Jeffrey Atkins, owed $1.1 million in back taxes and admitted to a federal court that he failed to pay taxes on the more than $3 million he earned from 2004 to 2006.

“I in no way attempted to deceive the government or do anything illegal,” Atkins said in court. “I was a young man who made a lot of money… I didn’t know how to deal with these finances, and I didn’t have people to guide me, so I made mistakes.”

U.S. Marshalls escorted the 36-year-old MC from Oneida County Jail this morning where he was being held in protective custody because of his high profile. He was released on his earliest possible date despite two misbehavior reports filed for unauthorized phone calls made in February 2012.

Atkins pleaded guilty in the gun case in 2010 after New York police found a loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun in his car when he was stopped for speeding.

The 2002 Grammy-nominee has plans to return to music after his release from federal prison and may be eligible to be released to a halfway house in less than six months according to his attorney, Stacey Richman. Richman also said that Ja is looking forward to his daughter’s graduation, adding, “he’s a devoted father.”

NEWS: Eight People Injured In Shooting Following Oklahoma City Thunder’s NBA Game! [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

Eight people were shot last night in Oklahoma City about 10 minutes after the Thunder beat the Los Angeles Lakers at Chesapeake Energy Arena to advance in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

All the victims were hospitalized and one remains in critical condition, Oklahoma City Police Department Captain Dexter Nelson said in a telephone interview. A pregnant woman was also treated for blunt trauma after the incident, which occurred in the Bricktown district of Oklahoma City, a club and restaurant area located a few blocks east of the arena, he said.

 Shortly after the Thunder-Lakers game a large crowd of people were moving toward parking lots and the Bricktown area, and there was some type of an altercation or scuffle between some people in the crowd,  Nelson said. “At least one subject pulled out a weapon and fired into the crowd.”

The Thunder beat the Lakers 106-90 to close the best-of- seven second-round NBA postseason series in five games. Nelson said police were unsure if the people involved in the incident had attended the game or if the altercation was basketball related.

The shooting occurred around 11:35 p.m. central time, Nelson said. The game ended around 11:22 p.m.

Police don’t have a suspect in custody as of this morning, Nelson said.

Information regarding the ages and genders of the victims haven’t been disclosed, Nelson said. Aside from the one victim in critical condition, all others were treated for non-life- threatening injuries.

NEWS: Young Buck Busted By Police On Federal Gun Charges!

Former G-Unit member Young Buck was busted this week on a federal gun charges and served with an indictment that could land him behind bars for ten years.

Details on Buck’s latest legal woes hit the Internet Monday (March 7) evening.

A notorious rapper from Nashville is in trouble again. Young Buck, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, is facing federal charges for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. Channel 4 was the only station in federal court Monday afternoon when the rapper was brought in in handcuffs to appear before the judge. As the indictment spells out, these latest charges could mean ten years in prison. He’s now facing federal charges. According to an indictment unsealed Monday, he’s charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a .40-caliber pistol and ammunition. Federal authorities say all this happened on or about Aug. 3. (WSMV News)

Despite the case’s seriousness, Buck has been allowed bail.

Brown pleaded not guilty, and his attorney said these charges came as a surprise to both he and his client. Brown is out on bond, but according to the terms of his release, he must surrender his passport. However, Young Buck is supposed to perform in Canada soon. So the judge is allowing the rapper to post $100,000 bond by Friday and then he’ll get his passport back. (WSMV News)

Last summer, Buck’s Tennessee home was raided by IRS agents.

After cutting ties with 50 Cent, Buck has found himself on the losing end of one fiscal battle after another. As previously reported, federal authorities raided his Nashville home last August, in an attempt to seize personal items to pay down his over $300,000 IRS bill. His belongings were set to be auctioned off, a move that was later stopped. (The Boom Box)

In October, G-Unit member Tony Yayo reflected on Buck’s publicized hardships.

“I feel sorry for the guy,” Yayo said about Buck’s financial woes. “It’s tough times right now. They had plaques up there, they had plaques up there [at the auction.] I’m talking about the record label plaques. Yeah, they had everything up there. They said Omarion got a $100,000 [in tax debt]. I think it’s about having the right people in your corner. One thing about G-Unit label, we always had accountants to take care of taxes. That’s one thing I can say about 50 Cent, he taught us a lot. With the tax thing, I learned everything I know from having accountants on the G-Unit staff…50 does give you talks about your money and the right thing you should do with your money. And he keeps it real about it. Instead of buying a new car or chains, he might say to invest in something. That’s the smartest thing to do for anybody to do in this industry…That’s one thing Buck did have, 50 did guide us the right way. If you spend a $100,000 in a matter of weeks, of course a guy with intelligence that’s your boss is gonna call you and say, ‘Yo, you’re spending a lot more money than I am and I have way more money than you.’ I think that’s what the issue comes down to…” (Shade 45)
