Meek Mill Makes His Return to the Stage at Rolling Loud Festival

In November 2017, Meek Mill was sentenced to two-to-four years in prison after violating parole on petty criminal charges, and after months of protests, petitions, and multiple appeals by the MMG rapper’s legal team, Meek was released from prison last month.

And ever since his release, the Philadelphia-born and raised hip-hop artist has been on a media tour speaking about his experience in prison, how he’s grown as an individual, and how his story can spark prison and judicial reform so that unheard voices don’t become a cog in the prison industrial complex.

Now, Meek Mill has finally returned to the stage for the first time since his release as a surprise guest at this year’s Rolling Loud music festival in Miami, Florida. Meek was introduced by none other than DJ Khaled and was met with roars and gratitude from the crowd.

Meek then went on to perform hits like “On The Regular” and “Litty” alongside Tory Lanez, but also took time to address his wrongful sentencing stating the following, “They tried to take my freedom, they tried to crush my dreams… But now we in Miami going the f*** up.”

Meek has become an influential pillar and somewhat of a martyr in the culture due to his faults and the corruption of the justice system, and it looks like the universe has a bigger plan for the hip-hop artist. With that said, check out Meek on the stage for the first time after being locked up.

Aly Raisman Suing U.S. Olympic Committee

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman filed suit against the U.S. Olympic Committee for failing to take action to prevent former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University team doctor Larry Nassar from molesting hundreds of young athletes, according to news reports.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in California but announced Friday, accuses the committee of bungling its response to sexual abuse allegations against Nassar, who is now serving a long prison term for sex crimes.

“After all this time, they remain unwilling to conduct a full investigation, and without a solid understanding of how this happened, it is delusional to think sufficient changes can be implemented,” Raisman said in a statement, according to NBC. “I refuse to wait any longer for these organizations to do the right thing. It is my hope that the legal process will hold them accountable and enable the change that is so desperately needed.”

A USA Gymnastics trainer was sometimes present during treatment sessions where Nassar abused young athletes at the Karolyi Ranch, Raisman alleges in the suit, according to NBC News.

Raisman, in recent interviews, has accused the USOC of ignoring allegations against Nassar and threatening her not to tell how he molested her under the guise of treatment.

“I was told [by USA Gymnastics] to be quiet,” Raisman told ESPN in January. “And I think that when somebody in high power is telling you to be quiet, right when they realized you are abused, I think that that is a threat. USA Gymnastics just said, ‘We’re handling this. We got this. Like, stop asking us questions.’”

Raisman, a gold medalist who competed at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, was among more than 100 women who alleged Nassar sexually abused them. He pleaded guilty to child pornography and sexual assault charges and was sentenced to lengthy prison terms.

The USOC did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The group’s CEO, Scott Blackmun, resigned on Wednesday after a cancer diagnosis.

“Under his leadership, USOC has focused nearly all its efforts on money and medals while the safety of our athletes has taken a back seat,” attorney John Manly, who represents many of Nassar’s victims, including Raisman, said in a statement.

Former Congresswoman Gets 5 Years for Pocketing Bogus Charity Money

Former Florida Democratic congresswoman, Corrine Brown, has been sentenced to five years in prison for mail, wire and tax fraud involving a sham charity, according to Fox News. Brown was pocketing hundreds of thousands of dollars from donors that thought their money was going to a charity. But in reality, the charity was a sham.

Brown, along with her chief of staff, Elias “Ronnie” Simmons, solicited donations for One Door for Education and informed the donors that the money would be funding scholarships for minority students. Brown & Simmons raised more than $800,000 but only $1,200 was awarded as scholarships. The money that was pocketed was spent on lavish events if it didn’t go straight into the congresswoman’s bank account.

A federal judge sentenced Brown on 18 crimes that ranged from conspiracy to fraud.

“It is a sad day for everyone. It is a sad day for this community,” Judge Timothy Corrigan said in court, according to The Associated Press. “I was impressed with all the outpouring of support for you and it’s a tribute to you and the work you’ve done … and that makes it more tragic and sad.”

After being elected to the house in 1992, Brown served 12 terms. She became one of the first three African-American lawmakers from Florida to be elected to Congress. Brown was indicted last year on 24-counts and lost last year’s election because of it.

Brown has blamed Simmons for all the wrongdoings. Though Judge Corrigan didn’t believe the explanation, he did lessen Brown’s sentence. Brown’s lawyer vowed to appeal.

Z-Ro Arrested For Aggravated Assault
Police arrested McVey after his ex-girlfriend, Brittany Bullock AKA Just Brittany, filed a complaint with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office about an incident she claims occurred in April near West Side Forest in the Katy area.

According to the complaint, on April 29, Bullock arrived at McVey’s residence to discuss the canceling of a dinner date.

Z-Ro Arrested For Aggravated Assault

Upon her arrival, Bullock claims McVey began to slap, punch and drag her throughout the residence while holding a pistol.

She told police the attack lasted roughly an hour and a half and said she was assaulted so many times “she eventually got sick and threw up.”

Z-Ro Arrested For Aggravated Assault

At one point, Bullock asked to go to the restroom, where she began recording with her phone. The alleged assault continued once she left the restroom.

Police said they could hear McVey state “you’re dead” in the recording as well as sounds that appeared to be slapping.

Police also heard Bullock state “why did you just push me” and “get your fu**ing hands from around my neck.” They also heard Bullock crying and asking McVey to stop.

McVey is being held without bond.

Watch OJ Simpson Parole LIVE

The Juice could once again be loose.

Imprisoned former football star O.J. Simpson has a parole hearing this week that could see him released from a medium-security Nevada prison as early as Oct. 1. While lawyers familiar with Simpson’s case say the now 70-year-old diabetic is likely to make parole, what his life outside of the prison walls will be like is still very much up for debate.

“The big question is, if Simpson is paroled, how would he be received? With open arms? Slammed doors?” columnist Scott Ostler wrote in Simpson’s hometown newspaper, the San Francisco Chronicle. “He would be retried a million times in the court of public opinion, gossip TV and social media. Psychopathic murderer or frame-up victim? Rehabilitated soul or consummate con man?”

There is renewed interest in the Simpson saga in the wake of last year’s highly popular FX miniseries and Academy Award-winning ESPN documentary.
