Cardi B’s “Muscle” Arrested By Feds For Selling Crack

New York, NY – A man who allegedly helped Cardi B deliver a strip club beatdown last year has been arrested. According to Page Six, alleged Brooklyn gangbanger Jefferey Bush was taken into custody on Thursday (August 22) for selling more than $12,000 worth of crack.

Authorities reportedly raided his house on Thursday morning and discovered a bag “believed to be crack,” pills, weed, a scale and nearly $15,000 in cash.

Bush pleaded not guilty at an arraignment in Brooklyn federal court later that day and is currently being held without bail. Prosecutors insist his connection to the Grammy Award-winning rapper makes him a “flight risk.”

“Based on the defendant’s profit from just the crack sales … as well as the celebrity connection with [Cardi B], he has myriad means at his disposal to enable his flight,” a detention memo states.

Prosecutors explained in court documents that Bush is a known member of the 5-9 Brims Bloods street gang. He stands accused of slinging a total of 280 grams of crack in Williamsburg at least six times between February and April.

Last August, Bush was with Cardi and her entourage at Angels Strip Club in Queens when they allegedly hurled bottles of champagne at two female bartenders and slammed one of their heads into the bar. Cardi believed one of the women had slept with her husband Offset.

In June, Cardi pleaded not guilty to assault charges stemming from the 2018 brawl.

Cardi is facing 12 charges, including two counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury. Other charges include misdemeanor reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy and harassment. If convicted, she could face up to four years in prison.

Bush, on the other hand, is expected back in court on September 10.

“I can accept that the life I’ve chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% the time. What I cannot accept is being told I’m lying to cover up a crime I haven’t committed. I have nothing to hide,” she wrote. “It is no secret that I was into partying in my teens and early 20’s. I have not only smoked, but advocated for weed, I’ve experimented with drugs, my biggest song to date is about dancing on molly and snorting lines in the bathroom.”

Miley went on to detail a time when she was 17 and lost a huge WalMart deal for ripping a bong, how she cheated on her exes, got kicked out Hotel Transylvania for ordering a penis cake and even touched on her numerous nudes.

“But the truth is, once Liam & I reconciled,I meant it, & I was committed. There are NO secrets to uncover here. I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring. I’ve grown up in front you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP,” she added. “I can admit to a lot things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because cheating. Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will.”

The Last Song actress concluded with: “BUT at this point I had to make a healthy decision for myself to leave a previous life behind. I am the healthiest and happiest I have been in a long time. You can say I am a twerking, pot smoking , foul mouthed hillbilly but I am not a liar.”

50 Cent Says He Has a ‘Drug Problem’ After Smoking with Snoop Dogg

50 Cent has an addiction thanks to Snoop Dogg.

During his Tycoon Pool Party in New Jersey over the weekend, the West Coast OG offered 50 a hit from his joint. At first, the “Power” producer turned it down, suggesting that the weed would make him pass out. But he eventually gave into peer pressure and was seen on camera getting high off Snoop’s supply.

50 even joked that Tha Doggfather got him hooked on drugs. “@snoopdogg made me smoke,” he captioned his Instagram video. “Damn now I got a drug problem.”

50, who was a former drug dealer, has refrained from drugs and alcohol in the past. “I don’t actually use drugs,” he told Piers Morgan during a 2011 interview. “It was an easy option. You can either take $10 or $5 that you spent on buying weed to smoke it or put it in your pocket.”

Snoop and 50’s friendship has remained strong since their 2003 “P.I.M.P.” collaboration. They recently performed together at a show in Brooklyn. Afterwards, Snoop “stole” 50’s custom Versace Lamborghini before it was returned to its rightful owner.

While Snoop made it into 50’s pool party, Wendy Williams was apparently turned down at the door. 50 posted a video of the talk show host being denied entry, but she eventually made it in and took a photo with Snoop.

During an episode his “Hotboxin” podcast, Iron Mike spoke about his 40-acre ranch in California City, where he revealed just how much he loves the powerful plant.

50 Cent: "Snoop Dogg Made Me Smoke, Now I Got A Drug Problem"

There was a lot to talk about at the Tycoon Pool Party this weekend. With 50 Cent as the master ceremonies and Casanova, Trey Songz, Snoop Dogg, O.T. Genasis, DJ Whoo Kid, and others in attendance, it was the place to be. There are still parties going on this week but for the most part, Fif is reliving all the craziness that took place in the water. Yesterday, we wrote about Snoop Dogg’s hilarious attempt at going viral, smoking out a “police ficer” before he stripped out his uniform and “quit his job.” Now, Fiddy is telling his own stories about Snoop’s ever-powerful weed.

We all know that the Doggfather smokes only the best bud in the world. He’s an experienced stoner and he won’t be seen near anything that resembles some mid. Only the loudest the loud for Uncle Snoop. 50 Cent is admittedly not as seasoned as his friend when it comes to marijuana so when he took a puff from Snoop’s blunt, he damn-near lost his mind. In fact, if you ask him, Snoop is the reason he’s now addicted to drugs.

The rapper-turned-entrepreneur shared a video recap the weekend’s events, calling out Snoop for getting him hooked on pot. With Sheck Wes playing in the background, Fif decided to take a drag on the wood but he didn’t know how hard the weed would hit him. “@snoopdogg made me smoke. Damn now I got a drug problem,” wrote the superstar on his social pages. Do you think he’ll be asking him for rehab money?

50 Cent Reveals How Snoop Dogg ‘Stole’ His Lamborghini

50 Cent is putting Snoop Dogg on blast.

The “Power” executive producer recounted how Snoop Dogg “stole” his car during his appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” Both rappers were performing at the Masters of Ceremony concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in June when Snoop surprised him by showing up on stage to perform their “P.I.M.P. (Remix).” But when 50 got off stage, his custom Versace Lamborghini Aventador was missing.

He thought I tricked him into a performance, but he offered to perform.”

“50 Cent, ni**a owe me some money, so I’m just gonna take the ni**a car right now,” said Snoop. “50, I’ma gonna take your car cuz till you give me my money.”


Atmosphere Braves Colorado Winter For "Earring" Video Featuring Musab

Rocky Mountains, CO – The ever-consistent duo of Atmosphere — Sean “Slug” Daley and Anthony “Ant” Davis — is back with a new video for “Earring” featuring Musab, one of 12 tracks on 2018’s Mi Vida Local.

Directed by Colin Floom, the visual is set in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains and shows Slug and Musab making an arduous trek by horse and buggy through the frigid terrain as they reflect on their lives.

Fans of Slug may noticed the mustache he had to grow for the video. In an interview with High Times, he explained how the extra facial hair was definitely strange. During a stop in Missouri as part of the Mi Vida Local Tour last year, he felt like the audience was staring at him in a weird way.

“It was different than what I’m used to,” he said. “I’m trying to figure out like, ‘Why are these people looking at me like this?’ So I brought it up to the audience. ‘Of course, you’re gonna stare at us because we’re on the stage but right now, I’m feeling kind of weird about the way you guys are looking at me.’ And as I’m saying this, it dawns on me, ‘Oh man, I have a mustache now and even I’m not used it.’ Nobody is. I look like Cheech. I forgot!

“I went on this fucking rant about how people treat you differently when you have different kinds of facial hair. Usually, I’ve always had this weird little soul patch and people don’t treat you that weird for that. They just kind of laugh at you. With the mustache, people kind of look at me like I’m like I’m supposed to sell them weed. I was fully in the middle of edible world when this was all going on. Had I not been in edible world, this would have not even crossed my mind.”

With the mustache gone, Slug is heading back to Colorado next month for two Atmosphere shows in Denver at the Mission Ballroom.

Mike Tyson is arguably one the best boxers all-time, if not for his power alone.

Ice Cube Rattles Off His Top 5 Favorite MCs

Los Angeles, CA – Ice Cube was a recent guest on Power 106 FM’s Nick Cannon Mornings where he broached a variety of topics. The conversation kicked off with Cannon praising Cube for his undeniable impact on Hip Hop culture.

But ultimately, the discussion turned to Cube’s Top 5 MCs and the BIG3 co-creator had no problem naming his favorites.

“I always look at the influencers, the pioneers, the ones who virtually created a style or flavor all they own,” he said. “So my greats are people like Melle Mel, Ice-T, Chuck D, KRS-One and I’ll put Rakim in there.

“To me, those are the trendsetters, the ones who changed the trajectory of the game in a major way. It was about skills and talent, and really having their own style and taking it and running with it.”

Cannon then spoke about the perceived lack of leaders in the Hip Hop space. Cube explained he’d witnessed a shift in the early ’90s from more politically-charged lyrics to what he dubbed “escapism rap.”

“I saw that shift happen around ’93,” he said. “It went from focusing on the rappers that really have something to say about our condition to the rappers who just wanted to escape our condition through weed, women, jewelry, cars, money … it’s escapism. Now pills — all that stuff is escapism rap and it’s easier to accept because when you listening to somebody who’s really telling you the real, it’s hard. Them records are not easy to listen to sometimes, especially when you know that they’re talking directly to you.

“Some people, when they go to kick it and go get entertained, they don’t want to hear all that — they wanna just party. That’s what we’ve been fighting against … not caring, not really worried about tomorrow type music over the ones that make you think, the ones that make you focus, the ones that make you change your behavior, the ones who trying to help you get out the situation you in.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Cube talked about the BIG3, the ills of social media and the next Friday movie.

Mac Miller’s "K.I.D.S" Is A Reminder Of Simpler Times

An artist is ten analyzed on the basis their collected works. As we rarely have a chance to encounter those we appreciate from afar, the music helps bridge an otherwise uncrossable gap. Though it, we can share laughs, insight, and even go so far as to build a psychological prile. We can track one’s evolution, both artistic and personal, by watching their discography unfold in real-time. And when they’re gone, the music serves as a reminder their story, be it one triumph, tragedy or both. For Mac Miller, one the formative chapters was his beloved mixtape K.I.D.S, which was released on this very day, nine years ago.

Mac Miller's "K.I.D.S" Is A Reminder Of Simpler Times

Given the more serious tone entrenched within his last three major releases, it’s interesting to look back at Mac at his most carefree. Where Swimming found him wading in serene waters, and Watching Movies found him surrendering to the pros and cons hedonism, K.I.D.S. retains an endearing sense innocence throughout. We’ve ten heard his peers praise Mac’s selfless character and giving nature. Nowhere are those qualities more evident than here. From the minute Kickin’ Incredibly Dope Shit kicks f, the production aesthetic is both warm and welcoming, the perfect backdrop for Mac to deliver the polar antithesis to “struggle bars.” Though some were quick to pigeonhole the young lyricist as a subsect the dreaded “frat bro rap” subgenre, Mac’s designs were hardly nefarious enough to merit such labels. With desires smoking weed, kicking back, and one day seeing his music in stores, Mac’s approach to song-crafting was undeniably wholesome.

Curiously, K.I.D.S also provides an anchoring point, encapsulating Mac at his most low-stakes. As his career progressed, his music became far darker in nature, both musically and lyrically. His battle with substance abuse was no secret, and some his most critically acclaimed projects arose during the height his personal maelstrom. To call K.I.D.S a reminder simpler times is an understatement; not unlike revisiting Eminem’s Infinite after listening to The Marshall Mathers LP, or Kanye West’s College Dropout after a Dark Twisted Fantasy session. It may not be Mac at his most artistically fulfilling, but the callback to an age innocence gives Mac’s cult classic a bittersweet quality it didn’t always have. Now, on the day K.I.D.S turns nine, why not take a listen to one the new mixtape era’s star-making projects? Given everything that has transpired since its release, perhaps you’ll find it sitting comfortably beneath a new light.
