NEWS: A$AP Yams, Founding A$AP Mob Member, Passes Away! [KingpinTV.net]

ASAP Yams

ASAP Yams, the co-founder and managerial visionary of ASAP Mob, has died. No further details are available at the moment, but several members of ASAP Mob have confirmed his death on social media. He was 26 years old.

Yams, born Steven Rodriguez, grew up in Harlem and became obsessed with rap music at an early age. As a teenager, he interned with Harlem’s legendary Diplomats Records, began managing some local producers, and sold mixtapes on the side. In 2007, at age 17, he co-founded ASAP Mob with ASAP Bari and ASAP Illz; they linked up with ASAP Rocky and ASAP Ferg a year later. By 2010 Yams was becoming an online tastemaker due to his Tumblr; by 2011, Rocky’s “Purple Swag” and “Peso” put the group on the map and the crew began signing major-label deals; and by 2013, Rocky’s official debut album Long.Live.A$AP debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. That rise can partly be attributed to Yams’ business savvy and aesthetic vision. He was a behind-the-scenes guy who ASAP Mob’s publicist once described as “the backbone of the operation.” Continue reading

VIDEO: Cam’Ron & A-Trak ft. Juelz Santana – “Dipsh*ts” [KingpinTV.net]

Cam'Ron & A-Trak (Feat. Juelz Santana) - Dipsh*ts

A-Trak and Cam’ron are back! Summer anthem “Dipsh*ts” features uncut Cam’ron slick talk over triumphant instrumental blasts from A-Trak, Oliver and Just Blaze, a Dipset-repping Juelz Santana on the hook, and “Champagne Dame” (aka Federal Reserve executive producer Damon Dash) providing a legendary, song closing rant, complete with “Foooooooool’s Gold” shout!

This Federal Reserve cut gets the epic video it deserves thanks to director Ricky Saiz, who follows up his work for Beyonce and Supreme with another iconic clip, capturing the rugged glory and inimitable fashion sense of Harlem and the Diplomats with true uptown-meets-downtown flair. From kids in airbrushed A-Trak tees to Cam’s floor-length mink, it’s the most style you’ll see in a video all year.

**TRIBUTE** :: R.I.P. Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls! [KingpinTV.net]


“The Best of Notorious B.I.G. Mixtape” by DJ M-Rock (free listen/download)

Born as Christopher Wallace on May 21, 1972, in Brooklyn, New York, Biggie Smalls, also known as Notorious B.I.G., became a drug dealer at a young age. He started experimenting with music as a teenager and, not long after, befriended Sean “Puffy” Combs. His 1994 debut album, Ready to Die, was a smash hit, and his long-running feud with fellow rapper, Tupac Shakur, helped to shape his career. His second and final studio album was “Life After Death”, which went on to become a diamond 10+ million sold classic. Biggie was shot and killed in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997.

NEWS: NFL Player Da’Quan Bowers Arrested At LaGuardia Airport For Carrying A Gun! [KingpinTV.net]

According to Marc Sessler at NFL.com: A loaded .40 caliber firearm was discovered among Da’Quan Bowers’ possessions at a flight check-in counter, per WNBC-TV. The two-year pro was set to board a US Airways flight to Raleigh, N.C. A spokeswoman for the Queen’s District Attorney’s Office confirmed to NFL Network that Bowers has been charged with two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Bowers has a court appointment scheduled for Monday night. Bowers, out of Clemson University, started six games as a rookie and none last season for the Bucs, compiling just 13 tackles in 10 appearances. Bowers was activated from the physically unable to perform list in October after tearing his Achilles tendon in May, but has failed to live up to his second-round draft status from 2011.

UPDATE: Bucs general manager Mark Dominik said in a statement to The Tampa Bay Times the team was aware of the situation and was “gathering information.” “We will withhold comment until we know all the facts,” Dominik said in a statement. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Bower’s arrest “will be reviewed under our league policies.”

NEWS: Amber Patrice Riley Of “GLEE” Fame, In Huge Dispute With NYC Nightclub! [KingpinTV*net]

“Glee” star Amber Patrice Riley threw a childish self-important temper tantrum last night at a NYC nightclub — all because the club refused to supply her 30-PERSON party with an arsenal of free booze — this according to the nightclub in question.

In case you missed it, Amber went off the rails on Twitter last night when WIP nightclub put the kibosh on her party plans — writing, “Never in my life have I dealt with such disrespect. That club @WIPNewYork on Vandam street, they are CROOKS and LIARS!”

FYI — WIP nightclub is the place where the infamous Drake vs. Chris Brown brawl went down earlier this year.

But a rep for WIP says the club wasn’t being unreasonable when it refused admission to Riley and her massive entourage. The rep says, “Ms. Riley’s team had contacted management before her arrival to work out her table arrangements which included the purchase of bottles as well as a bottle on the house.

Upon arrival, her party of 30 people refused to purchase any bottles, so they did not enter.” It’s almost like they’re in business to make money. 

Calls to Amber’s camp weren’t returned.

NEWS/VIDEO: Specific Details On The Drake VS. Chris Brown Fight Last Night! [www.TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

Chris Brown sustained a nasty gash on his chin — apparently a wound from a bottle attack — after his entourage allegedly clashed with Drake’s crew in a NYC nightclub brawl.

It’s been confirmed with the NYPD that the two singers’ crews got into a fight at WIP nightclub — 5 people were injured in the melee.

NYPD arrived on the scene after receiving a call between 4 and 5am. Chris and Drake were not present when cops arrived.

We’re told there were no critical injuries … just bumps, bruises and lacerations. No arrests were made.

After the fight, Brown tweeted a photo of his injury … along with the message, “How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol… Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!.”

The photo and the message have since been removed from Brown’s Twitter page.

There are reports the two started throwing blows (and bottles!) over Chris’ ex girlfriend, Rihanna, who Drake is rumored to have hooked up with.

A few hours before the brawl, there was footage of Drake leaving the London hotel … surrounded by some diesel-sized hired muscle. No word if they were involved in the bar fight, but wow … that would be scary.

We’re told both Brown and Drake had been hanging out in the VIP section … when Drake began pointing and yelling at Brown.

Brown began yelling back … and that’s when members of both entourages rushed in and began shoving each other.

With tensions running high, someone threw a bottle — which set the whole thing off … and the shoving turned to punches.

We’re told club security rushed in to break up the fight … and called police for backup. Brown and Drake left the scene by the time cops showed up … but several members of their entourages remained at the club. Multiple members of both crews required medical assistance.

We’re told the club suffered some serious damage in the fight — including busted up tables, broken mirrors, shattered lighting and glass scratches all over the floors.

10:15 AM PT — A witness who was inside the club says … Chris Brown did NOT send any bottles over to Drake’s table, despite several reports to the contrary.

10:55 AM PT — Drake’s rep just issued a statement about the incident, insisting Drizzy wasn’t involved in the brawl at all … the beef was between CB and another rapper named Meek Mill.

Drake is adamant … he is not responsible for the bloody gash on Chris Brown’s face … claiming he was simply leaving the nightclub when the brawl broke out … but sources tell us, the fight started after Chris Brown and a rapper at Drake’s table started trash talking each other.

The rapper hanging with Drake — Meek Mill — was screaming at Chris and Chris was giving it right back to Meek Mill. One of Chris’ lieutenants was also involved in the screaming match.

Our sources would NOT say what specifically they were arguing about — partly out of fear that someone will get hurt. But we are told the argument was NOT over Rihanna.

One source says Chris was hurt when Meek Mill hit him with a bottle.

A rep for Drake says … “Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.I.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began.”

The rep adds, “[Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.”

Chris Brown’s bodyguard Big Pat was also hospitalized last night with a GIANT GASH on his forehead, following the massive bottle-hurling brawl at W.i.P nightclub in NYC.

The photo surfaced on Twitter earlier today — showing Big Pat in a hospital gurney, blood gushing all over the place. It’s unclear exactly how BP got hurt or who’s responsible for the damage.

Thankfully, looks like the guy’s okay — he showed up moments ago outside Chris’ NYC hotel, badly scabbed up … but walking nonetheless.

Drake flashed his middle finger, engaged in serious trash talk, and drafted several other rappers to join his posse … minutes before the all out brawl with Chris Brown, according to multiple witnesses in the club.

We’re told the tension started building when Drake gave the middle finger to one of Chris’ bodyguards and shouted … “I’m about to go whoop that ass!” Chris’ entourage then returned fire with a few hand gestures of their own.

Witnesses — who were very close to the action — tell us that Drake felt disrespected … even though he started the exchange … and went to get backup from his boys Meek Mills, Juelz Santana, and Trav B.

At this point, we’re told Drake got loud and shouted at Chris … “You be on that ho s**t on Twitter n***a” — a clear reference to a recent Twitter war between Chris, Drake, and Meek … all over who’s banging Rihanna.

Moments later we’re told Chris’ security guards got irate, pushing and shoving began between Meek, Juelz and Chris’ posse — and you know the rest.

Interestingly, everyone agrees Drake never got physically involved in the brawl — even though his mouth … and hand … sparked it all.

**BREAKING NEWS** – Ja Rule Gets Sentenced To 28 Months In Jail!

Rapper Jeffrey Atkins, also known as Ja Rule, was sentenced Monday to 28 months in prison for failing to file tax returns with the IRS after admitting that he did not file his taxes for five years, the Justice Department said in a news release Monday.

The 35-year-old performer from Saddle River, New Jersey, had pleaded guilty to three of five counts before U.S. Magistrate Judge Patty Shwartz, who imposed the sentence in Newark federal court.

From 2004 through 2008, Atkins received royalties from ASJA Inc. and performance income from Rule Tours Inc., but failed to file returns that would have mandated he pay the government $1,137,912, the release said. Though he pleaded guilty to charges related only to the first three years, he will pay back taxes and penalties for all five, it said.

“Taxpayers do not have the luxury of deciding whether to comply with laws,” Shwartz said in sentencing. She further sentenced Atkins to a year of supervised release.

The prison term announced Monday is to run concurrent with a previous sentence Atkins is serving on unrelated state charges.

Last month, Atkins turned himself in for a two-year prison sentence in New York after pleading guilty in December to attempted criminal possession of a weapon after police found a loaded semi-automatic firearm — with the serial number scratched off — hidden in the back seat of his luxury Maybach sedan, according to a statement from the Manhattan’s district attorney.

MOVIE TRAILER: A Tribe Called Quest – “Beats, Rhymes, & Life” (documentary)

Michael Rapaport will be hitting the road this summer with his documentary on hip-hop legends A Tribe Called Quest, “Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest.” The roll out across the country starts July 8 in New York City and Los Angeles.  

“I’ll be all over the place ­ wherever they want to send me,” says Rapaport, a first-time director with more than 20 years of acting credits, among them “True Romance,” “Mighty Aphrodite” and the TV series “Prison Break.”   

The film, a Sony Pictures Classics release, will play another 32 cities as it is released to a handful of theaters at a time. “Beats, Rhymes & Life” will play San Francisco, Chicago and Washington, D.C., on its second week, San Diego, Boston, Philadelphia, Minneapolis and Atlanta beginning July 22.   

The current run ends Aug. 12 when it premieres in 10 cities, among them New Orleans, Indianapolis and Pittsburgh. The film will be screened Wednesday (Apr. 27) at the Tribeca Film Festival.   

A fan of A Tribe Called Quest since its first recordings in 1989, Rapaport decided the band was worthy of a documentary while he was watching it perform in 1998 at New York’s Tramps nightclub. In 2006, while attending a reunion show at L.A.’s Wiltern Theatre, he decided he was the one to do it, financing it with his own credit cards.   

“There was no time to wait,” he said. “As an actor I have been a part of so many movies that seem like they are about to fall apart. The indie filmmakers who inspire me are the ones who go and do it, no matter what that means. Fortunately since then I have received (some financing).”   

Using performances and interviews from the 2008 Rock the Bells festivals that they headlined, the four members of A Tribe Called Quest trace their history from the borough of Queens to the formation of the group in 1988 and the release of five albums between 1990 and 1998. Considered the most artistically ambitious rap group of the 1990s, “Beats, Rhymes & Life” is also the title of Tribe’s only No. 1 album on the Billboard Top 200.   

Since the film’s debut at the Sundance Film Festival three months ago, Tribe leader Q-Tip has sent out mixed messages about the film, saying he had problems with it and that ATCQ fans should go see it. (Billboard)
