Guess Which Rappers Are In Trouble?? AGAIN !
Rappers are always in and out of legal trouble and we've got the latest on the drama with Jeezy, Jim Jones, and Nicki Minaj. Find out more when you read on...
Jim Jones pleaded guilty to assault charge resulting from a car crash on Tuesday. After the car crash, Jones attacked the driver, pushed him into the highway twice, and threw his car keys into oncoming traffic. Jones agreed to take a 10 week management course. He seemed to agree with the verdict tweeting, "Anger mngment was the result, smh. well duhhhh been needing tht."
Jones also said that it's best people focus on his positive community service, like a 12 week high school course that he teaches about the music industry.
Let's hope Jimmy, who's had a history of run-ins with the law, learns from his anger management classes.
Young Jeezy was arrested in the Bahamas over the weekend. No word on what the rapper did to cause his arrest yet. But the streets have been buzzing saying weed is involved. Jeezy was slated to perform a concert there, but was taken into the police station instead. Reports say that Jeezy was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was arrested and released the same day, and later performed at a club. Go figure.
Some government officials in Trinidad are heated about Nicki Minaj's recent concert in the country. Nicki's not in trouble herslf, but the promoters of the Localise Itt Concert she was a part of, are.
The government claims the island was overcharged for her performance. Out of the $825k budget for the show, Nicki and her entourage received close to $400k. The event planners-- Daryl Braxton of D Project Records and Sport and Youth Affairs Minister Anil Roberts--also paid $60k for Nicki to stay at Hilton Hotel.
The government has now called for an official audit of the event organizers and the concert. The promoters claim that the expenses were justified because of the amount of exposure the country has received since it was featured on Nicki's new MTV documentary. The government says that because of the expensive concert, there is no money left to hold community events such as a health fair and peace march.
Well that's a doozy. But, to be fair, being mad at Nicki actually doesn't make sense. She has her rider and requests just like any other artist, and it's up to the promoter if they want to pay it or not. And the promoters did. So...
Speaking of Nicki, here's her new video preview with Kanye and co. for "Monster". The full vid drops soon. And by the way, today she's celebrating her 26th birthday. I wonder what her gifts will be....
