Are you hype for Shine?
And what do you think about no features from MMG mates Rick Ross and Meek Mill for the second straight Wale album?
The Life Of Pablo was the first LP to go number one via streaming only back in April of 2016.
The project was originally a TIDAL exclusive. But when ‘Ye expanded it out, he only put it on streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music; it was never available for download (save for a moment on his website) and never had a physical copy.
The RIAA certified TLOP platinum this week, making it the first album ever to hit a million sales via streaming only.
Since 1500 streams is the equivalent to one one album sale, that means TLOP has been streamed at least 1.5 billion times.
Rick Ross just struck a huge plea deal in the 2015 kidnapping case in which he was accused of holding his groundskeeper hostage and pistol-whipping him.
According to TMZ, Rozay pled no contest to one felony count of aggravated assault, and the other felony charges were dismissed. He also had to pay a fine of $10,000. Once paid, the felony count will be permanently removed from his record.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BSf_-IsB3s9/embed/captioned/?cr=1&v=7The judge did give Ross five years probation since he pled no contest to several misdemeanors including battery, assault, two counts of aiming a gun at someone and having less than one ounce of marijuana on him. But he’ll be able to travel freely during the probation.
Right after receiving the news, Ross spoke outside the courtroom.
“First and foremost. God is great,” he said. “I respect and appreciate how the court chose to resolve not only myself but my co-defendant’s cases. It is important to both of us that we put this situation behind us for the benefits of my mother, my sister, my family, friends, all my fans and supporters.”
When he got home, Ross recorded himself removing the ankle monitor that he’s been wearing since first being charged and he couldn’t look happier.
Meek Mill and DJ Khaled congratulated the rapper on their Instagram pages, which you can see below.
On Sunday, Thug posted a couple possible sub-tweets which could have been in reference to getting that last charge dropped.
Thug has been riding quite the winning streak these days. In addition to doing his thing on Rick Ross’ single “Trap Trap Trap,” we also recognized his guest spot on “Sacrifices,” off Drake’s
album playlist More Life, as being the best rap verse for the month of March. Plus, you can also catch Thugger floating on “Heatstroke” by Calvin Harris featuring Ariana Grande and Pharrell. Thug really can’t lose right now, and luckily, his lawyers are here to make sure nothing stands in his way.
Back in September of 1996, Suge Knight was driving the BMW that got riddled with the bullets that killed 2Pac. While it was always thought that 2Pac was the intended target (due to a scuffle that went down at the Tyson fight Suge and ‘Pac were attending), Knight is now saying he was the one they were shooting at.
This new information comes from a signed affidavit that Knight’s attorney Thaddeus Culpepper released. Knight says that it was his ex-wife Sharitha and former Death Row security chief Reggie Wright, Jr. who were behind the hit, and it was Knight, not ‘Pac, who they were gunning for. This information is reportedly in the new documentary Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton, and Knight says everything they presented in this doc is true.
A spokesperson for the film reportedly told Music News that “Culpepper told Carlin individually that not only did Knight confirm the events as portrayed in Compton, which portray Knight was the intended target and Shakur as collateral damage, as true, but also goes on to allege that these 1996 events may have been the first in a history of attempts on Knight’s life, culminating in the recent attempted killing of Knight at the 1OAK Club in Los Angeles, where Knight was shot six times.”
Interestingly enough, Knight was adamant that he wouldn’t tell the police who killed ‘Pac if he knew who it was just two months after ‘Pac died. On national television, no less.
Reggie Wright Jr. told AllHipHop in 2015 that multiple people have tried to connect him with 2Pac’s death, and that “all these people are dropping dead. I keep telling people God don’t like ugly. I hope people learn a lesson from this.” That’s eerie as f*ck, and can be taken a couple of different ways. Either way, there’s currently no word on if authorities will be pursuing more with Wright.
