DMX Bai Revoked, Judge Orders House Arrest

DMX received a tongue lashing and a heavy handed warning as the judge presiding over his tax evasion case confronted him for his irresponsible behavior while out on bail. However, he got to go home despite having failed several drug tests over the past month.

Judge Jed Rakoff had apparently had enough with the 46-year-old Yonkers rapper prior to his late arriving at a bail hearing at Manhattan Federal Court on Friday, August 11. It had been a mere one day since news got out that X recently broke the terms of his bond arrangement by leaving the state to visit family in St. Louis, and he was already sparing the rapper from having to pay some pretty serious repercussions for a different violation. According to Rakoff, DMX has tested positive for cocaine, marijuana, and opiates on four occasions in less than four weeks.

Attorney Murray Richman went to bat for his client, by reminding the judge that Simmons has a problem with substance abuse, but Rakoff reportedly wasn’t having it, firing back, “It sounds like total self-denial.” In response to the infraction, Rakoff ordered X to serve house arrest with an electronic bracelet on his ankle and warned that “it will be the end of his career and the end of living a decent life,” if the rapper jumps bail.

Before dismissing DMX, Judge Rakoff turned his focus solely on Richman, saying, ”The lesson he seems to have learned over the last few weeks is Murray Richman will always get him off.”

Doctor ‘knocked out’ as he’s forcibly removed from overbooked plane

United Airlines had asked four passengers to leave at random after realising that a flight to Louisville from Chicago last night was overbooked.

However, when no one agreed to take up their offer of $800 and a free hotel stay, the airline began to pick passengers at random.

But the passenger had refused telling staff that he was doctor and needed to see his patients in the morning.

Footage, shot by passenger Audra Bridges, shows the passenger strike his head as he is removed.

She said that after initially being removed the doctor made his way back on the plane but had a bloody face and seemed disorientated, before being removed again.

She told the Courier Journal:that after a young couple had left voluntarily, the doctor had refused leading to the confrontation.

‘Everyone was shocked and appalled,’ she said. ‘There were several children on the flight as well that were very upset.’

The man was the only passenger forcibly removed form the flight, United Airlines said.

They added: ‘Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked,” the spokesperson said. “After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate.

‘We apologize for the overbook situation. Further details on the removed customer should be directed to authorities.’

Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 Episode 1 Recap

Have you missed the ladies of Potomac in their absence from our screens?

If so, then The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 Episode 1 was most definitely the episode you were craving. It had it all: Catfights, Fashion and a whole lot of shade.

When the episode got underway, Gizelle Bryant was trying on a new wig and implying she knew better than Beyonce. “Becky and all of her good hair don’t have nothin’ on me.” Yeah, we believe you Gizelle. If that was not self-centered enough, Gizelle then pleaded with her hairdresser to let her speak about her new boyfriend.

“Can we talk about my man? … Kevin. … I dunno if we’re gonna mingle, but we’re at least gonna give it a shot.” Um, Gizelle, it sure seems like you don’t know much about your man. “If he comes in a short package, that’s fine. As long as not everything is short,” she concluded.

After that, we checked in with Charrisse — who was no longer reeling from the events that paved the way for her husband to ditch her. “Charrisse last year was a very unhappy person and holding onto damaged goods. … Charrisse don’t live here anymore.”

Charrisse also revealed that she sent a cease and desist letter to Charrisse for chatting smack about her to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

Meanwhile, Ashley revealed that things between her and Michael were not good and part of that was down to their restaurant not doing good business.

“We’re eight months in, and it’s been a very difficult time. … People weren’t really digging our food.” She then opened up about their dire finances, saying, “Michael has invested over 1.5 million dollars, and he’s taking care of it until we make ends meet. It’s putting a strain on my relationship.”

That’s a whole lot of money to invest in something that appears to be failing. Ashley was not the only cast member struggling with dire straits on the financial side of things. Robyn revealed that things were not going well. “As a result of all of our financial challenges, our house ended up going into foreclosure.” She then opened up about her husband, Juan and his desire to become a couple again. “Juan wants us to be a couple again, but there’s a block up that’s preventing me from looking at our situation as a relationship.”

After that, Charisse revealed that her husband wanted to part ways with her. “He’s wanting a divorce.” She continued, “I decided that you know what? My children are what’s important. … We haven’t talked about it so much. … Hopefully, he gets a job.”

Later, Gizelle stirred up some drama for Charrisse. Robyn was trying to bring the feud to an end, but defended Charrisse in the process. “I don’t feel like she was calling you a whore. … Didn’t she say something like, ‘I’m not going around calling you a whore?’”

“You were wrong for putting her business out there.”

However, Robyn’s words were not enough to tone down Gizelle, who went forward with some more claims about her former friend. “She has told me she cheats on Eddie,” Gizelle claimed. Is she lying? We have no idea.

At the Manifest Your Destiny competition charity event, Gizelle tried to stir up some more drama. This time it was all down to a dancer named Teon who was grinding on Ashley. Ashley did win first place in the competition, but Charrisse was too busy turning her attentions to Gizelle.

“I did not call you a f–king whore. Don’t let the zip code fool you, baby.” Gizelle seemed to retreat, but is she just biding her time to ruin Charrisse’s life?

LHH’s Mendeecees Denied Shorter Sentence

Mendeecees Harris is going to have to do all his time. The Love & Hip Hop star was denied his request to have his 8-year sentence for drug trafficking reduced.

LHH Mendeecees Denied Shorter Sentence
According to the Democrat & Chronicle, in early March, U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci Jr. denied Harris’ request to have his federal drug distribution sentence lessened by up to a third.

Harris claims that he was actually a mule, rather than a proper drug dealer, and this was not considered when he was sentenced.

LHH Mendeecees Denied Shorter Sentence
Reportedly, Harris’ attorney, Dawn Florio, argued that Harris was a “minor player” in the interstate drug trafficking network he was a part of.
Reports D&C:

In her papers, she highlighted the community work performed by Harris, who pleaded guilty to the crime and forfeited $170,000 he earned from the show and public appearances while awaiting his sentencing.
As often as two to four times a week before his sentencing, Harris met with youth organizations, imploring the teenagers and kids to stay away from crime, Florio wrote.
“Youth sent about 100 letters to Harris, thanking him and relaying how inspirational his presentations were to them,” Florio wrote, noting that Harris has a job once he leaves prison. He is expected to return to the show once free.
Prosecutors responded that, while Harris was not a kingpin in the network, his role could not be considered minimal. Harris and two others admitted to the drug trafficking from 2006 to 2008, and are now in prison. The leader, Ronald Walker, received a 10-year sentence and forfeited $1.5 million, a 2012 Land Rover, and properties in Queens and Georgia.

Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

Trigger fingers turned to Twitter fingers earlier this month, when Lil Wayne aka Tunechi aka Weezy aka Mr. Carter appeared to quit the rap game via social media.

Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

Lil Wayne’s illustrious career began at the tender age of 9, when the prepubescent NOLA native joined Cash Money Records. That is, Weezy dropped his first platinum-selling record when Drake was still prepping for his Bar Mitzvah. In 2005, he founded his own label imprint, Young Money Entertainment. His sixth album, Tha Carter III, was an embarrassment of riches. If Lil Wayne had only given us “Lollipop,” it would have been enough—let alone “Got Money” and “A Milli.”

Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

Unfortunately, like countless artists before him, FKA Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. fell victim to his own demons. Aforementioned demons included an inexplicable desire to make rock music, which led to 2010’s Rebirth, a 12-track disaster that the Los Angeles Times called “one of the worst albums of the year.” Like Blake Lively getting her racist Goop on or Kate Upton offering unsolicited opinions on American race relations, Lil Wayne learned a hard and fast lesson about staying in his lane. In March of the same year, the rapper started serving an eight-month jail sentence for criminal possession of a weapon. He even dropped a Lucious Lyon-esque incarcerated album, in a semi-successful attempt to erase the memory of his Fall Out Boy collaboration. Having ridden out more ups and downs than a Real Housewife during the Hamptons rosé shortage, Weezy remains a hip hop legend, and one of the best-selling artists of all time.

But on Sept. 3, the rapper tweeted, “I am now defenseless and mentally defeated and I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I’m dun.” He continued, “Ain’t looking for sympathy, just serenity…I’m good y’all don’t trip.” In a new interview with commentator Skip Bayless on his Fox Sports 1 show Undisputed, Wayne confirmed his retirement with a caveat: He’ll get back to work, when and if Cash Money Records settles his alleged back pay. Or in Wayne’s words, “Gimme mine and I’ll walk free.”

Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

This isn’t the first time Lil Wayne has trashed Cash Money. In 2014, the rapper fired shots at his mentor Birdman over a label dispute. After countless delays of Tha Carter V, the rapper’s fifth and final Carter album, Wayne broke down: “I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain’t that easy,” he wrote on Twitter. “I am a prisoner and so is my creativity.” The next year, Wayne confirmed the dissolution of his decade-long relationship with the label, filing a $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money. In the suit, Weezy claims that Birdman’s decision to delay Tha Carter V is in violation with his contract. He’s seeking to terminate his ties to Cash Money once and for all, taking his Young Money protégées with him—a roster that includes Drake and Nicki Minaj.

Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

In the wake of Wayne’s onstage invocations to “Fuck Cash Money,” fans were not surprised to learn that Weezy and Birdman were no longer on speaking terms. In July 2015, the rapper released his album “Free Weezy” in an exclusive Tidal deal, rapping, “Rest in peace to the Cash Money Weezy / Gone but not forgotten.” Birdman and his entourage allegedly responded by pelting the Cash Money turncoat with drinks and water bottles from the VIP section of Miami’s Club LIV. And because Birdman and Lil Wayne are serious power players and not Love and Hip-Hop: Miami cast members, Birdman also sued Jay Z and Tidal, citing Cash Money’s exclusive rights to Lil Wayne’s music. In his first interview since the controversy began, Birdman told journalist Angie Martinez, “Wayne is my son no matter what. That ain’t never gonna change.”

Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

Along with their daddy issues and hip-hop dynasty drama, Lil Wayne and Birdman also failed to distinguish their beef from an episode of Empire with a January 2016 club reconciliation. The duo returned to the room where it happened—Miami’s Club LIV—to make nice, with Birdman announcing, “This my motherfucking son, and I’ma die for him, I’ma live for him, and I’ll motherfucking kill for him. That ain’t never changed. YMCMB for life.” But off-brand Lucious Lyon stunting aside, Wayne and his mentor’s professional beef is still raw. The Cash Money lawsuit has reportedly hit an impasse, and fans are dubious that Weezy will be freed anytime soon. Still, like I always say, if Drake could wait seven years for Rihanna to text him back, you can wait another year or two for Tha Carter V. Maybe Wayne will follow the lead of other YMCMB discontents and ditch the label for Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music—we hear he’ll sign just about anyone these days.

Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

But Wayne’s legal woes haven’t scared away his diehard fan base. After announcing his retirement via Twitter, the rapper received an immediate virtual outpouring. Chance the Rapper tweeted, “I just wanna remind you that absolutely nothing and no one in this world can defeat you. Tell them devils back back.” Missy Elliott joined in, adding, “Prayers up 4 whatever u may be enduring right now this too will pass & may u find PEACE…I will always be a fan of your work.” Even hip-hop’s resident bleach blonde super villain (there’s always one) got all up in his feelings: Chris Brown shared a picture with Wayne on his Instagram, captioned, “This man helped my career in so many ways and has inspired me to live life!!! FOREVER WILL BE THE GREATEST RAPPER ALIVE!!!! NONe OF YOU RAPPERS WOULDNT EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START. REALISTICALLY MOST OF YALL ARE HIS STUDENTS AND DONT WANT TO ADMIT IT!!!” I, for one, would not be comforted by Chris Brown screaming at me in caps lock, but I guess it’s the thought that counts.
Drake once again followed in Brown’s footsteps, Instagramming a tribute to the hip-hop trailblazer and promising, “We are fighting until you get yours. Freedom to drop music and peace of mind.” As one of the most profitable moving pieces in the ongoing Cash Money/Lil Wayne litigation, Drake’s support is invaluable. But the sweetest Weezy shout-out came by way of Kendrick Lamar, who posted a possibly under-the-influence video of himself rapping some early Lil Wayne lyrics, before begging, “N***as talking about retiring and shit. Fuck that! Retire, quitting rap, whatever you wanna call it…Fuck that!” The expletive-laden video gets even less quotable from there, but Lamar’s plea to his hip-hop idol strikes an emotional chord.

Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

Before you join the masses wailing in the streets and rending Yeezy garments apart, take solace in the fact that Lil Wayne is no recluse. The rapper performed on the Made in America festival stage just hours after his Twitter retirement. He also debuted a theme song he created for Undisputed. And just a few days ago, Wayne released a full track called “Grateful” featuring Gudda Gudda. The song swells and sermonizes about a new chapter in Weezy’s life, bragging, “They can’t put no more Weezy Baby out, that’s that Cash Money vasectomy.”

Ditching Birdman once and for all seems like the only way for Wayne to spread his wings and soar—ideally, not toward another rock album. That being said, Weezy’s personal demons are as numerous as his ongoing litigations. The 33-year-old suffers from epilepsy, and his frequent health problems have been increasingly well covered—this summer alone, Wayne likely suffered three seizures in just four weeks. It doesn’t take a team of detectives to draw a connection between Wayne’s hospital visits and his predilection for Lean, a thick cocktail that consists of promethazine, codeine cough syrup, and, for the more culinary-inclined connoisseur, Jolly Ranchers to taste. According to an addiction specialist, sippers gradually increase their Lean tolerance, and have to drink more to get their desired high. The more Lean you drink, the more likely you are to suffer some of the more serious effects, such as seizures. In June, Wayne allegedly downed three 16-oz bottles of Lean just hours before suffering multiple seizures aboard his private jet. We’re all for Kendrick’s heartfelt mash-up, but maybe one of Weezy’s acolytes should be telling their epileptic idol to step away from the codeine? Clearly, the opiate is starting to go to his head.
