According to the police report, YFN ignored orders to pull over as police trailed his ride in downtown Atlanta. The rapper did eventually get around to complying, but did so under duress, with officers having trained their guns on him as he slowly exited the vehicle. While no substance was recovered, the car reportedly reeked of marijuana. Three weapons were reportedly recovered.

Hillary Clinton backed by Beyoncé and Jay Z

The celebrity cavalry arrived for Hillary Clinton on Friday, as she took the stage with music icons Jay Z and Beyoncé in Cleveland, Ohio.

The power couple performed at a get-out-the-vote rally four days before the election, lighting up a crowd of thousands in the hopes of motivating them to get to the polls. Rapper Jay Z hosted a similar concert for Barack Obama in 2008 and declared to those in attendance in the battleground state: “Ohio, we are on the doorsteps of history.”

Adding he had “no ill will” toward Donald Trump, Jay Z, whose legal name is Shawn Carter, said the Republican nominee’s “conversation is divisive”.

“That’s not an evolved soul for me, so he cannot be my president. He cannot be our president.”

“Once you divide us, you weaken us,” he added.

The artist and producer shared the stage with Beyoncé, who elicited an unparalleled reception from the crowd of 10,000 people. The global superstar performed hits that included her feminist anthems Run the World (Girls) and Diva.

“There was a time when a woman’s opinion did not matter,” Beyoncé, a self-proclaimed feminist, said.

Urging the audience to cast their ballots, she stated her support for Clinton in no uncertain terms: “I’m with her.”

Although Beyoncé attended a fundraiser for Clinton in New York City last year, Friday night marked her most emphatic show of support for the former secretary of state.

Jay Z previewed the concert earlier this week in a post on Twitter, in which he quoted Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.

“We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented,” the quote read.

“Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.”

Hip-hop artists J. Cole, Chance the Rapper and Big Sean also performed on Friday night and underscored the importance of electing the first woman president of the US on 8 November.

The event was one of several efforts by Clinton’s campaign to harness the celebrity power backing her candidacy as voters head to the polls. Last week, Clinton appeared with actress and singer Jennifer Lopez at a concert in Miami also geared toward mobilizing voters to head to the polls. Other music events on Clinton’s behalf in the final week before the campaign included rocker Jon Bon Jovi in Pittsburgh and indie rock band The National in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Hollywood stars have additionally held organizing events for Clinton in key battleground states with the campaign in its final days.

Pop star Katy Perry, one of Clinton’s most vocal surrogates, campaigned on the Democratic nominee’s behalf in Nevada and was slated to appear in Philadelphia this weekend. Miley Cyrus sought to boost enthusiasm among young voters by door-knocking for Clinton at George Mason University in Virginia, while singer Pharrell Williams appeared with Clinton and Vermont senator Bernie Sanders at a rally in Raleigh, North Carolina on Thursday.

Attempt to Attack Ryan Lochte at DWTS

Dancing is NOT a contact sport.

ryan-lochte1

Ryan Lochte is far from being the most loved athlete in America right now… but we may have been underestimating just how hated he really is.
As you’ve probably heard, the Olympic swimmer did his best to impress during Monday night’s premiere of Dancing with the Stars — but his hard work was completely overshadowed by two protesters who rushed the stage!

While Carrie Ann Inaba was attempting to give her judge’s critique to Ryan and pro partner Cheryl Burke during the 2-hour episode, two men wearing anti-Lochte t-shirts were apprehended off-camera. 8

However, hours later on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Tom Bergeron actually shared found footage of the take down — and those men were straight-up TACKLED by security guards!
Rightfully so, of course… but this video is much more violent than we ever expect to see from ABC!!

Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa Sued Over Fence Collapse

Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa are being sued for egging on concert-goers just before a railing collapsed at one of their concerts.

Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa Sued Over Fence Collapse

The two artists are being sued by 17 attendees, who claim they were injured when the fencing collapsed during “The High Road” tour in Camden, New Jersey, on Aug. 5, according to TMZ. Snoop and Wiz reportedly yelled “Everybody in the motherf——g grass, bring your a– down here,” just before the fencing broke, according to the lawsuit.

The victims claim that by shouting that line, the pair ignited the stampede, which caused concert-goers to fall about 10 feet onto a slab of concrete. Nearly 40 people were hurt at the waterfront amphitheater event and several people were hospitalized after the collapse. One victim says that he suffered a fractured spine, the gossip site reported. Attendee Katie Colbridge tweeted that the mishap occurred when the duo switched stages. “A pile formed,” she tweeted. “It was when Wiz and Snoop came to the lawn on the smaller stage.”

Troy Ave Is Suing Irving Plaza

Troy Ave and his legal team announced that they have filed a lawsuit against Irving Plaza and Live Nation Worldwide on Monday, August 8. Assisted by attorney Scott Leemon, Troy [Roland Collins], appeared before reporters anticipating the rapper’s arrival, after word leaked over the weekend that he’d be holding a press conference before Irving Plaza.

“[If it weren’t] for their actions Troy never would have been shot, and none of the incidents that took place that night would have happened,” Leemon said, after informing members of the media that they had earlier filed the suit in Brooklyn Supreme Court. “He is the victim here. He did not bring a gun into this place, and we are seeking redress for the negligence.”

Claims included in the lawsuit contradict the prosecution’s presumption that the bullet wounds Troy sustained during the May 25 incident were self-inflicted, alleging that the same individual who had subsequently shot and killed friend and bodyguard Ronald McPhatter, had shot him twice. The suit goes on to claim that in the absence of a metal detector, the venue had allowed patrons and fellow artists into its VIP section without using a wand or procedural pat-down to check for weapons. He is suing for an unspecified sum, which includes the cost of legal fees.

Troy has been out on $500,000 bail since July 11. Visible on his ankle during the press conference was the tracking device he agreed to wear as a condition of his release. Regarding proximity Troy literally got about as close as he could to being returned behind bars, as he is forbidden from entering nightclubs, bars, or performing venues up until and through the duration of his trial.
