Yet, in the case Tenney’s lawsuit against the organization, the 21-year old claims that FaZe have tied him down to a contract that limits his ability to realize his full-earning potential through sponsorships, and other gaming ventures. Tenney’s attorney is adamant that FaZe’s restrictive measures are in violation the Californian law.

“That Gamer Agreement is grossly oppressive, onerous, and one-sided,” writes Bryan Freedman, the attorney currently representing Tenney at this early stage the legal proceedings. “Faze Clan uses its illegal Gamer Contracts to limit Tenney to deals sourced exclusively by Faze Clan and to prevent Tenney from exploring deals presented by others; deals that are potentially superior to deals procured by Faze Clan; and deals that are not saddled with an eighty percent (80%) finder’s fee.”

FaZe Clan specializes in eSports competition based around popular titles such as Call Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, FIFA, Overwatch, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. Tfue’s particular field expertise lies within the realm competitive Fortnite Battle Royale.

Kodak Black Offers To Pay For Funeral Of STEM School Shooting Hero

Last week, two suspected shooters killed eight people in an attack on Denver, Colorado’s STEM School Highlands Ranch. One the students who lost his life was 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo, a young man who had hopes one day becoming an engineer. Unfortunately, his life was cut short after Castillo reportedly lunged at one the shooters in an effort to save his classmates—many that he considered to be like family.

As Castillo’s story has made headlines, the teenage robotics enthusiast has been hailed a hero. Kodak Black has also heard Castillo’s valiant effort and according to The Blasthe wants to pay for the family’s funeral expenses to allete any financial burdens. Kodak’s attorney sent a message to the family that reads:

“First let me tell you words cannot describe my sorrow for your situation. You raised an amazing young man that did an amazing thing. I know that those words cannot provide as much comfort as you and your wife deserve. I have a client that wished me to reach out and extend an fer for him to pay for any and all funeral expenses, as well as establish a scholarship in his name. Your son truly represents the inherent good in people. Again, I am sorry for your loss.”

Kodak reportedly also wants to set aside $10,000 for an annual scholarship in Castillo’s name. The money will be given to “a student going to college wanting to study in the science and engineering areas.” The rapper recently dished out $12,500 to help 14-year-old Paige Cook purchase notebooks for her campaign as she wanted to make sure everyone in her school’s low-income district had supplies for their classes.

"Avengers: Endgame" Will Be Hitting Disney+ This Winter

Cue audible grumbling from executives over at Netflix and Amazon. Disney has once again taken to flexing their billion-dollar property, revealing their “endgame” in bringing the climactic Avengers film to their Disney+ streaming service. While the move is an obvious one, it may very well work wonders in converting casual Netflix subscribers, many whom recently enjoyed a batch  Marvel content, including Infinity War’s arrival last Christmas. Now, history is set to repeat itself, as Endgame will be coming to Disney+ exclusively on December 11th. 

Interested parties should take note that Disney+ will be launching on November 12th, bringing several promising new shows into the fold. Many MCU properties are already tapped to join, including series centering on Loki, Hawkeye, Vision & Scarlet Witch, and Falcon & The Winter Soldier. There’s also Jon Favreau – himself a member the MCU – and his Mandalorian series, which should work wonders in revitalizing a Star Wars brand that has proven divisive late.

Have you heard enough to make the conversion? If so, did Endgame play a role in influencing your decision?

Houston, TX – Trae Tha Truth’s Relief Gang was back in action Tuesday night (May 7) to help fellow Houston residents dealing with flash flooding. The veteran MC and his crew were patrolling the city to aid anyone stranded in high-water locations.

93.7 The Beat’s Mr. Rogers and Trae used social media to connect with those in need. The Relief Gang’s efforts involved transporting students that had been stuck at Woodridge Forest Middle School in the Greater Houston area.

Kawhi Leonard Re-signing With Raptors Is A "Serious Consideration Now": Report

Kawhi Leonard was traded to the Toronto Raptors in the fseason and while everyone knew Leonard would be a great player for the team, no one really expected him to want to stay for more than a season. The former NBA Finals MVP has been rumored to want to play in Los Angeles, with the Clippers being the frontrunner to land him in the fseason. Now though, the Raptors are winning and are tied 2-2 in their second-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers.

With Kawhi on the Raptors, they are a powerhouse team in the Eastern Conference. Thanks to the franchise’s recent winning culture, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski believes there is a chance that Kawhi could return to Toronto next season.

Per “The Woj Pod”:

“Kawhi Leonard just felt all along, it was going to take the full year to sell him on Toronto. It wasn’t going to be done in training camp or by Christmas or by the trade deadline. But I do think they’ve made progress with him. I think they’ve made pretty good progress with him from the sense I have. They put themselves in it. And when Kawhi showed up there, I’m not sure he imagined any future in Toronto. I do think it’s a serious consideration now.”

If the Raptors get eliminated by the 76ers, there is a stronger chance that he will want to leave, although if they can get themselves to the NBA Finals, it wouldn’t be surprising if Leonard would want to come back.

Where do you think the Raptors superstar should go?

Hoodrich Pablo Juan Talks Growing Up Muslim, Gucci Mane’s Wisdom, & Nipsey Hussle In "On The Come Up"

Hoodrich Pablo Juan was nice enough to help us launch this season’s “On The Come Up” premiere twos days before his BLO mixtape is due for delivery. BLO The Movie, as it’s being pegged, sees Juan complete a change in his stance, as a rapper, and on a more personal level. Juan is perhaps best known for his nonchalant, hush delivery, but as you’ll soon find out, there’s a whole lot more to his “Pablo Juan” personage, including a timeline the middle years before he set foot in Atlanta, Georgia. 

“I ain’t really fit in when I was a kid – I was more a standout,” Juan says, beginning the come up trail in his place birth, Newark, New Jersey. From that point onward, the conversation reaches a level comfort, with Juan opening up about his Muslim upbringing, his affinity for Louis Farrakhan, his relationship with 1017 boss Gucci Mane, and a host other subjects too.

“Being Muslim, growing up, we did nothing nobody did,” Hoodrich freely admitted. “Imagine everybody coming out on Christmas with gifts…” On the subject his isolation, Juan also breaks down the early influence vegetarianism in his household, imparted by his parents, and informed by several generations practice. His own father becomes so involved in the local Muslim fraternity, that he left his job as a security marshal to become a full-time minister in their local principality. Unsurprisingly, Pablo Juan has a lot reverence for his father’s strength in character, an ambiguous trait he hopes to embody in his adult life.

As for his early influences in the rap game, Hoodrich lists Rocko, Future, Young Scooter, Boosie Badazz, Three 6 Mafia, and Gucci Mane, the project manager on all things 1017 Eskimo. Although out all the name he could muster, Pimp C holds the highest rank in his heart or hearts. There’s even a point in the interview where Hoodrich Pablo Juan channels his younger self by performing bits and parts  Three 6’s “Who Run It,” complete with the admissible grunts a one Crunchy Black.

The burden pro lies in their “Screaming Slatt” duet released in February. Aside from the benchmark created by Gucci Mane (or his vision), Hoodrich can see himself donning the mantle a CEO in the next 5 to 10 years just like his Guwop did some time ago.

"Sonic The Hedgehog" Trailer: Why Was Coolio’s "Gangsta’s Paradise" Used?

Earlier today, Paramount Pictures premiered the trailer for the upcoming movie Sonic The Hedgehog. The film called onto a star-studded cast which includes Jim Carrey as the supervillain “Robotnik,” Tika Sumpter (A Madea Christmas) and James Marsden (X-Men) amongst many others. Despite a freshly redesigned take on the iconic and fast-footed juvenile delinquent “Sonic,” fans were left with several inquiries after viewing the trailer. While some were disappointed with Sonic’s look and predictable a not-so-great film, others were more concerned with the song chosen to lead the released trailer. 

Coolio’s 1995-smash hit “Gangsta’s paradise” was used throughout the trailer for the anticipated Sonic film and fans are wondering why. That is especially considering the countless original songs featured in previous Sonic games and related products. In addition, the trailer hints at no relation with the song whatsoever which has since left everyone quite puzzled.

As such, the song’s inclusion has sparked a few theories. A suggestion brought forth by Complex concerning the use the song relates back to its 1990s link. Moreover, the theory entails that both Sonic and the aforementioned tune rose to prominence in the 90s, which would explain its use in the trailer. Though somewhat convincing, the question still remains.
