could be sentenced to more than a year in jail for the two assault charges
pending. He recently refused a deal that would have allowed him to plead
guilty to misdemeanor assault, enroll in an anger management class and
do community service, all to avoid potential jail time. This past Monday
(Mar. 26) Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Tanya Kennedy retracted a plea
deal that was made earlier this year and set a trial date for May 8.
That will be Rhymes judgment day. I bet he wont be spitting,
kicking or punching anyone up until that day
..well at least I
UPDATE! Atlantic Records recording artist DG Yolas recovery
looks to be promising according to his family. He is already up
and writing. Yola aint gonna let up, his family said in
a statement. He was shot in the face; the bullet went through one cheek
and out the other. He is currently recovering in an Atlanta hospital
where the doctors are optimistic that he will make a full and speedy
recovery. The incident took place in the early morning hours on Saturday,
March 24 during a failed robbery attempt. We are keeping you in our
prayers DG. His album, Gutta World is set to release this June.
If anything they
should arrest the cab driver for running all those lights!
that former G-Unit rapper, The Game, has a warrant out
for his arrest after he missed a court appearance in Manhattan this past
Thursday. The warrant stems from charges that The Game will face for impersonating
a police officer. Allegedly, The Game jumped into a cab and ordered the
driver to run several red lights, stating that he was an undercover police
officer. During the ride, the driver flagged down an officer and explained
the situation and the rapper was placed under arrest. In January, The
Game pleaded not guilty to the charges, hence his upcoming trial date
on June 13. I mean really, are they really going to punish the man for
saying that he was an officer?
UPDATE! The incredible Foxy Brown pleaded surprisingly not guilty
to tow misdemeanor charges that stem from a scuffle she was involved
in at a beauty supply store in Miami, Florida. According to Foxy she
is going to stand up and fight and take care of this. I
dont think she should stand up nor fight anything. If anything,
that woman needs to be placed in a confined area where she can ventilate
her erratic emotions. Thats the reason shes in the predicament
shes in now, all because she wanted to stand up and
fight!! Her trial date is set for June.
J. LO GETS THE BOOT FROM HER LATIN ROOTS! Yup, The nations
top Latin music chain, Ritmo Latino accused her of forgetting her
roots and banned all J. Lo CDs from its 50 stores. David Massry,
President of Ritmo, stated that J. Lo has refused personally
to promote her new CD in any of our stores. Just this past
Wednesday, Lopez was in the Bronx signing hundreds of autographs
at the F.Y.E. record store for fans who purchased new album. This
is a Spanish-language CD and if she wants to discriminate against
the Latin Community then we will not sell her product, said
Massry. Although Lopez could not be reached to comment her fans
came to her defense.
sums up this weeks rundown of the Inside Scoop on whats what in
Hip-Hop, until next week my humble readers, this is ya gurl Miss Hinds and Im
