lilwayneBET has expressed remorse over a performance by Lil Wayne, Drake and Young Money Records that involved underage girls during songs “Best I Ever Had” and “Every Girl.” The songs, which have overt sexual references, were performed during the Sunday BET Awards ’09 show as a bevy of young girls danced on stage. The group of girls consisted of Lil Wayne’s daughters and her friends. In an exclusive statement, BET has responded to the criticism and the public outcry over the segment. “BET Networks deeply regrets the performance by Young Money at the BET AWARDS ’09 (featuring Lil Wayne, Drake, Gudda Gudda and Mack Maine),” a BET representative told AllHipHop.com exclusively. “Elements of the performance were unplanned and should not have happened.” In the aftermath of the show, many have expressed outrage over the outing by Young Money, which was set amid a show dedicated to the late Michael Jackson. —————————-} CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

56904878MP002_DMCRather than keep the issue a private, family matter, Reverend Run will address the drug arrest of his son Joseph “JoJo” Simmons on an upcoming episode of Run’s House. On May 8, JoJo was arrested after buying marijuana in Washington Heights. Along with criminal possession charges, the 19 year old teen was slapped with reckless endangerment for crashing his BMW into a parked car in an attempt to flee. The episode shows Russell Simmons reminding his now reverend brother on his own past before being quick to condemn his young son. “I did smoke weed, but that’s not the point. I’m hoping we can say something to him so that he won’t continue to get a rap sheet. Because if he ever does something again, they don’t just slap him on the wrist.” The Run’s House episode will air on MTV this Monday (June 22) at 10PM.

Max B Found Guilty Of Manslaughter

Posted in ***EXCLUSIVE***, Hip Hop, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2009 by theblogunion

Former Dipset affiliate Max B was found guilty of manslaughter and conspiracy to commit robbery Tuesday (June 9) after a judge ruled over the case in a New Jersey courtroom.

According to the rapper’s attorney, Gerald Saluti, Max B (born Charles Wingate) was found guilty on nine of the 11 counts he was facing. The charges stem from a theft that involved the rapper, Kelvin Leerdam and Max’s former girlfriend Gina Conway. Conway eventually turned state’s evidence against the men.

Max B was accused of leading the trio to steal upward of $30,000 from two men. The incident went awry, however, when Leerdam allegedly shot one of the men.

Conway testified in the case that Max B wasn’t present at a hotel room he rented at the time of the crime. The rapper’s attorney spoke to MTV News on Tuesday and expressed frustration about Conway’s testimony.

“They found him guilty of conspiracy to commit robbery. There’s a very specific definition of robbery, by force,” Saluti explained. “Then they found him guilty of aggravated manslaughter, instead of unintentional murder. The theory on which they convicted him leads to conspiracy.

“It’s boggling,” Saluti continued. “The witness [Conway] said the plan wasn’t to rob but to go in there and steal money with no one there.”

Saluti previously filed a motion on Max’s behalf to separate his case from Leerdam’s since the second man was allegedly believed to be the shooter. The attorney said he feels his client should be facing lesser charges based on the evidence presented. He has filed an appeal with the court, and a motion should be made within 10 days, Saluti said.

Sentencing for Max B is set for July 31.

Mike Tyson’s daughter on life support

Posted in ***EXCLUSIVE***, News, Sports with tags , , , , on May 26, 2009 by theblogunion

cannes tyson photocall 2 170508PHOENIX (AP) — Boxer Mike Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter is on life support after she was found with her neck on a treadmill cable Monday, police said.

The girl’s 7-year-old brother found her on a treadmill with her neck on a cable attached to the exercise machine at their Phoenix home, police Sgt. Andy Hill said, calling it a “tragic accident.”

The boy told the girl’s mother, who was in another room. She took the girl off the cable, called 911 and tried to revive her.

Responding officers and firefighters performed CPR on the girl as they rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she was in “extremely critical condition” and on life support, Hill said.

“Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console — it’s kind of a loop,” Hill said. “Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it.”

Hill said former heavyweight champion Tyson had been in Las Vegas but flew to Phoenix immediately after learning of the accident. Police didn’t release the girl’s name.

Tyson could not immediately be reached for comment. Calls to three of his representatives were either not returned or not answered.

Brief footage from local TV station KTVK showed Tyson arriving at the hospital in a white button-up and black pants, and looking around with a frown before going inside.

Hill said everything in the investigation pointed to an accident. “There’s nothing in the investigation that revealed anything suspicious,” he said.

He added that responding to calls involving children is an officer’s most difficult duty.

“Those are the things that stay with you in your career,” he said. “We always hope for a miracle — not to have the worst happen to a child.”
