So not too long ago we posted about the release of the new Lebron X EXT’s (or the Denim Brons as I like to call them) and there’s already been an altercation. A man was shot to death over the weekend outside of Wish in Atlanta. The crazy part about this story is that the guy that got shot was actually attempting to rob other people in line for their sneaker money. When the would be robber came up to do his thing, a man reportedly shot him dead and then stepped right back in line so he didn’t lose his place. No one has been charged as the police are likely treating this as a case of pure self defense. “He [the shooter] really stood up for all of us,” said Taylor White, who told Channel 2 news that he was in line when the shooting happened. “I salute the homie that did that.” Crazy stuff man.
We have some bittersweet news to report about DJ/Super Producer AraabMuzik. He was shot earlier today in a failed robbery attempt. According to Seattle’s very own Avatar Darko, he was shot after the people robbing him couldn’t get anything from him. He’s currently in the hospital but is doing okay. Glad to hear this didn’t end up too bad and he’ll be fine.
Lil’ Wayne was out in Los Angeles shooting a music video on Tuesday and apparently had multiple seizures again which lead to him ending up in the hospital. This isn’t the first time Weezy’s had a problem with seizures due to a lack of sleep and overworking. Hopefully this time he really gets the help he needs and realizes that work isn’t everything.

Social media just went up 100 levels with this new invention. Paintbot just created this new bot that shoots paintballs when Tweeted a certain hashtag. We’re not in any place to decribe the technicalities of this but click HERE for all the info.
Last night after his show in Philly, French Montana’s crowd got shot at very close to where his tour bus was. Two people were injured and one died from the incident. Watch the video below for more info.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Rick Ross ever since the shooting. It’s only right that Sway gets the first crack at talking to him about the incident. So here’s their mini-interview on the red carpet at the Grammys.
Uncle Luke has been in the rap game for a very long time, so he knows all about the ups and downs of have a career in this industry. He personally wrote a letter earlier today addressing Rick Ross about his recent beef with gang members and the shooting. Here it is…
Dear Rick Ross:
As someone who survived several rap beefs, I’m going to give you some advice. You need to seriously address the threats and attempts on your life. You have worked hard to become a big name in hip-hop. You’ve paid your dues and you’ve grown lyrically since the release of your debut album, Port of Miami, in 2006. You’ve arrived, buddy.
But all this gangster bullshit is jeopardizing your career. No club or arena is going to risk people getting shot. You can forget about doing any tours or CD signings. And if you can’t make money, watch how fast Warner Bros. Records turns on you. I know from experience how venues and the music industry would like to black ball you.
According to the video description, this kid is anywhere from 18-24 months old. Seriously couldn’t believe what we just watched. Someone sign this kid already!
After the shooting that occurred the other day, Rick Ross is not taking any more chances. According to TMZ he has officially hired a 24-hour armed security squad. Before this Rick Ross would always have armed security at major events and concerts, but now he has realized that it might be necessary at all times with the amount of threats he has been receiving. Sources close to Ross say that the birthday shooting was an eye opening experience which lead to the decision.
No matter what happens, the beef lives on between 50 Cent and Rick Ross. After hearing about the shooting this morning 50 took to Twitter/Instagram and claims that the shooting was staged since there were no bullet holes in the car. His caption reads “Hahaha fat boy hit the building?lol it looks staged to me. No hole’s in da car.”
