Ronny Kash Hits Hard with Consistent Music @_RONNYKASH_

unnamed

Ronny Kash came through with a new single titled “Drip Thru Yo Party” 3 months ago that racked up over 40K views on YouTube. Now he’s back with another one! Born in March 1999, the young artist had a love for music since his elementary school days. His father, Clockboy Skrap, continued to introduce Hip Hop to him and his brother, Qari Beatz. The two siblings stood alongside each other and became self-made musicians as they continued to explore the game of rap together.

Along the way, Kash decided to kick it up a notch and launched Kash Mafia. The movement started out locally as he took over San Antonio with not only his music but his fashion sense as well. The Tone City rapper isn’t stopping any time soon, releasing a single 3 months ago titled “Drip Thru Yo Party” and he’s back with another one for the win.

[MUIS NEWS] Kash Doll Rejects Nicki Minaj’s Offer to Talk to Asian Doll on ‘Queen Radio’

index

Nicki Minaj’s attempts at playing peacemaker fall just a bit short. On Tuesday night (Sept. 25), the Queen artist invited Kash Doll and Asian Doll onto her forthcoming episode Queen Radio, a move that appears to be one designed to mediate issues between two artists who’ve beefed with each other in the recent past. Kash Doll wasn’t having it.

Nicki was the one to send the invite, tweeting, “Ok @kashdoll @ImAsianDoll let’s have a chat on the next episode of #QueenRadio #QueenTingz Sending love to the both of you. ♥️” Responding to the tweet, Kash Doll made known indifference toward Asian Doll as well her unwillingness to accept Nicki’s invitation.

“I’m straight… imma just ignore it she’s not even a Doll no more anyway she changed her name to Asian da brat… and that was my only issue,” Kash Doll wrote in response to Nicki.

From there, Nicki announced that if Kash Doll wouldn’t appear, Asian Doll would. After that, Kash Doll responded by letting loose some of her reasoning for not pulling up on the show.

“I’ll kick it with Nicki any day buttttt I’m not tryna listen to somebody yell and call me bitchez and make up shit… I’m straight,” she wrote. Unrelenting, Nicki responded by saying she wouldn’t let something like that happen.

“Oh you must not know I’d never allow that,” wrote Nicki. ““WE” won’t be making fools out of ourselves. Number 1 radio show on Apple. By a black woman from south side Jamaica, Queens NEW YORK CITY. Oh but they don’t hear me tho. #QueenRadio you’ll see on the next episode. Trust ♥️”

She later added an additional tweet, though it’s unclear if it’s a sub at Kash Doll or not. “Guess who’s getting CSOTD? ,” she wrote, referring to her “Cocksucker of the Day Award” she delivers during each episode of Queen Radio. The first “award” was given to Travis Scott’s manager, Irving Azoff.

Although Kash Doll says she no longer has any issues with Asian Doll, the two were seemingly in conflict this past summer. At the time, Kash Doll claimed the feud was a one-sided one over a man she wasn’t even interested in.

Asian Doll hasn’t spoken out directly on this situation, but she’s always made it clear that she idolizes Nicki, and Nicki herself says Asian Doll is taking a trip to Queen Radio. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next.

[MUSIC NEWS] Daz Dillinger Arrested for Marijuana Possession in Georgia

180926-Daz-Dillinger-827×620

Daz Dillinger has run into some legal trouble. According to court documents, Tha Dogg Pound co-founder was arrested late Tuesday night (Sept. 25) at his home in Powder Springs, Georgia and charged with multiple felonies related to the possession of marijuana.

Cobb County Sheriff’s Office records show that the g-funk pioneer, born Delmar Arnaud, was booked in jail shortly after midnight Wednesday morning. He took out a bond to pay his $15,000 bail and was released this afternoon.

Dillinger faces 12 felony counts of possession of a controlled substance and one felony count listed as “Purchase, Possession, Manufacture, Distribution, or Sale Of Marijuana [sic].”

TMZ reports that police officers seized 117 grams of marijuana from Dillinger’s home in addition to 10 THC pods, THC oil, one THC vaporizer and a container labeled “Cannabis Lean.”

The arrest comes four months after Dillinger told TMZ that Los Angeles police stopped him to ask about “this Kanye West shit” after Daz posted a since-deleted Instagram video suggesting that Crips “fuck Kanye up” in the wake of Yeezy’s pro-Donald Trump statements. Days later, Dillinger released a Kanye diss track. He teased a sequel on Instagram earlier this week.

[NEWS] Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years for drugging, sexually assaulting

0925-bill-cosby-mugshot-montgomery-county-jail-2

Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby will serve three to 10 years in state prison, Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O’Neill ruled on Tuesday. The former television superstar, who traded on a squeaky clean, fatherly image, was sentenced after being found guilty of three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault in April in one of the most widely publicized trials in modern history.

Cosby’s legal team asked that he be released on bail, pending his appeal. However, the judge denied that request. He will be sent to prison immediately as Judge O’Neill deemed that he could “quite possibly be a danger to the community.”

The sentence is significantly lighter than the possible maximum sentence for his crimes, each of which carry up to 10 years in prison, meaning he could have served a 30 year maximum sentence. However, District Attorney Kevin Steel asked O’Neill Monday to sentence Cosby, 81, to five to 10 years in state prison. However, Cosby’s defense team argued that even that would cause “excessive hardship” to the elderly star.

“What does an 81-year-old man do in prison?” attorney Joseph Green asked the court. “How does he fight off the people who are trying to extort him, or walk to the mess hall?”

However, Cosby’s accuser, Andrea Constand, as well as the more than 60 women who have come forward with allegations against him in recent years, argued that the man once heralded as “America’s Dad” should not get a pass for his crimes just because of his age and status.

“I wasn’t sure what had actually happened but the pain spoke volumes,” Constand said in an impact statement to the court. “The shame was overwhelming. Self-doubt and confusion kept me from turning to my family or friends as I normally did. I felt completely alone, unable to trust anyone, including myself.”

Cosby’s sentence comes after a lengthy trial that resulted in one mistrial and an eventual guilty verdict, over accusations from former Temple University employee Constand. He was found to have drugged and sexually assaulted Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. Since then, multiple women have come forward against “The Cosby Show” star with similar allegations of assault.

“So to say that he’s too old to do that — to say that he should get a pass, because it’s taken this long to catch up to what he’s done?” Steele said, his voice rising. “What they’re asking for is a ‘get out of jail free’ card.”

The first part of the sentencing hearings focused on the prosecution’s efforts to label Cosby a sexually violent predator. Despite efforts from Cosby’s defense team to argue that he is no longer a threat to anyone, Judge O’Neil ruled Tuesday that Cosby will be given that label. The classification means that Cosby must undergo lifetime counseling and report quarterly to authorities. His name will appear on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbors, schools and victims.

Cosby’s trial was heralded as the first major celebrity trial of the #MeToo movement, and the first to result in a conviction. Cosby’s reputation sank after comedian Hannibal Buress brought up the numerous sexual assault allegations against the comic in 2014. Since then, more than 60 women have come forward with allegations against him.

“The victims cannot be un-raped. Unfortunately, all we can do is hold the perpetrator accountable,” said Gianna Constand, the victim’s mother, who testified Monday that her daughter’s buoyant personality was forever changed after the attack.

More than a decade prior, Constand sued Cosby in 2005, settling for nearly $3.4 million. In the deposition for that case, Cosby admitted to buying Quaaludes and giving women drugs and alcohol before sex – although he said every interaction was consensual. Constand’s allegations were the only ones that could bring about a criminal case against Cosby as many of the other women’s accusations fell outside the statute of limitations.

[MUSIC NEWS] Dr. Dre’s TV Series Rejected by Apple CEO Due to Violence

1537803624_4b3cbfd03bd720f6cd1109f16b9c82e5

Dr. Dre’s TV plans hit a bump in the road. On Saturday (Sept. 22), the Wall Street Journal reported that Vital Signs, which is a semi-autobiographical drama Dre produced for Apple, was rejected by Apple CEO Tim Cook for being too violent.

Apparently Cook saw the six-episode series himself before telling Interscope Cofounder and current Apple exec Jimmy Iovine that the show featured too much violent content. In addition to gun violence, the show also includes scenes with cocaine use and at least one orgy. Neither Dre nor Cook have spoken about the show’s apparent rejection.

l Signs was originally announced back in the winter of 2016 and it’s been revealed that Michael K. Williams, Sam Rockwell and Ian McShane were stars on the show. At the time, it was reported that each episode of the series was supposed to be “focusing on a different emotion and how Dre’s character deals with it.”

While Vital Signs is pretty much no more, that doesn’t mean Dre has had any time off. Back in July, it was reported that the Good Doctor was mixing and mastering Anderson .Paak’s Oxnard album. On Sept. 12, Dr. Dre used his Instagram account to announce the completion of the job.

In the caption for his celebratory post, which included an image of himself with .Paak, Dre let loose the good news. “Just finished mixing the album. It’s a celebration bitches!!”

We may not be getting to see Vital Signs, but at least more of Dre’s handy work will make its way into the world soon.

[MUSIC NEWS] Jay-Z and Beyonce Surprise Teen With $100,000 Scholarship During On the Run II Tour Stop in Arizona

beyonce-jay-z

Jay-Z and Beyonce are on a mission to gift 11 lucky students with a $100,000 scholarships and during their Arizona stop on the On the Run II Tour on Wednesday (Sept. 19), the couple surprised Mikayla Lowry with the gift.

Lowry was one of 19 Boys and Girls Club students who attended the show for free and was made aware of her award when DJ Khaled announced her as the winner. “They said my name, and I was like, ‘what?'” the teen said.

Money should be no issue for Jay, who recently topped Forbes’ annual list of the world’s highest-paid hip-hop acts. While Hov came in second last year to Diddy, the Brooklyn rapper took the top spot this year thanks to the $76.5 million he earned.

In related news, the man who rushed the stage during Jay and Beyonce’s stop in Atlanta was charged with simple battery. Although the couple said they wouldn’t be pressing charges, Atlanta police pursued their own. The man was originally issued a citation for disorderly conduct after he ran on stage and made contact with Hov.

Hov and Bey still have a few more scholarships to give out and will announce the winners during their stops in Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara, Calif., Seattle and more. The On the Run II Tour wraps up on Oct. 4 in Seattle.

[MUSIC NEWS] Joe Budden Says Diddy Plans to Respond to Eminem’s Claim That He Had Tupac Shakur Killed

mqdefault

It looks like Diddy isn’t about to let Eminem’s “Killshot” name-drop, which saw the Detroit rapper accuse the mogul of having Tupac Shakur killed, go un-checked. According to Joe Budden, who works as a host of his own eponymous podcast and as a TV personality on State of the Culture on the Puffy-owned Revolt TV, Diddy is handling the situation.

Speaking on an episode of The Joe Budden Podcast this past Tuesday (Sept. 19), Budden, who was also a focus of Em’s “Killshot” wrath, says a behind-the-scenes conversation with Puff let him know the Bad Boy Records founder wasn’t going to let Em’s controversial implication go unresponded to.

“Nothing to speculate about. Nothing to talk about,” Budden says. “Puff said it’s in his hands and he said I can tell ya. That’s the end of that. He said, ‘Yeah, there’s nothing to say about it. It’s in my hands.’ He’s wild. Period.”

Budden doesn’t get any more specific, but it’s clear that Diddy would have a reason to be displeased with Em’s bar. On “Killshot,” which is a diss song responding to Machine Gun Kelly’s Em diss, “Rap Devil,” Em references the theory that Diddy had Shakur set up to be shot and killed in Las Vegas 22 years ago.

“Killshot, I will not fail, I’m with the Doc still/But this idiot’s boss pops pills and tells him he’s got skills/But, Kells, the day you put out a hit’s the day Diddy admits/That he put the hit out that got Pac killed,” Em raps on the track.

Em ends “Killshot” by saying he’s just playing around, but according to Budden, that wasn’t quite enough for Diddy.
