Have you ever been so upset with someone that you wanted to run them over? Well, an Arizona woman got that upset with her husband and is now serving three-and-a-half years in prison for it.
Why was she so upset? He didn’t vote in the 2012 presidential election. Apparently, she “believed the family would face hardship from his winning another term in office.” I guess she was right about that (though clearly not in the way she probably expected).
If it’s a day ending in Y, then there’s a good chance a new Clinton Foundation revelation will take place. This time, according to the Washington Post, the foundation received anywhere between $12 million to $26.4 million in “previously undisclosed payments from major corporations, universities, foreign sources and other groups.” These payments were for speeches given by Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton on behalf of the foundation.
“Knowing what we know now, I absolutely would have sent the Pacific Fleet out of Pearl Harbor on Dec. 4 to intercept the Japanese Fleet,” Cotton told the Washington Examiner during an interview in his Capitol Hill office. “I say that to highlight how foolish the question is. You don’t get to live life in reverse. What a leader has to do is make a decision, at the moment of decision, based on the best information he has. George Bush did that in 2002 and 2003 and he was supported by Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and John Kerry and every western country’s intelligence agency.”
This is the best answer to the Iraq War question that is being asked ad nauseam today. We can’t rule by hindsight. We can learn from it, which Senator Cotton does point out in the article, but we have to make decisions based on the information we have at any given time. It will always take years after a decision before that 20/20 hindsight kicks in.
Hip Hop pioneer Grandmaster Flash is joining the production team for the upcoming Netflix show The Get Down. The 57-year-old legendary DJ will serve as an associate producer and adviser for the Baz Luhrmann helmed drama.
Flash will also be portrayed in the series’ storyline by Mamoudou Athie. The Get Down is set in New York City during the 1970’s. Both fictitious characters and real life figures will be featured in the plot.
Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them — except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from CBGBs to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco — told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world … forever.
Grandmaster Flash was one of the instrumental artists of that era. He helped create innovations in the art of DJing that became standards in Hip Hop. His group, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, released the groundbreaking 1982 single “The Message,” and they were the first Hip Hop act inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.
Another one of Chinx’s closest friends have come forward to speak on his death. Max B called from behind bars to share his sympathies about his lost friend.
“This s–t is just senseless,” he said in audio posted by Revolt. “Ain’t even no explaining it. “We lost another young, inspiring brother.”
He said uncalled for killings like Chinx’s “take us back another 30, 40 years.” The Harlemnite went on to reminisce on he and Chinx’s friendship and said that they weren’t heard on wax together due to him standing trial at the time.
“We all used to be in my crib, French, me, him,” he said. “I’d be with Chinx every day, Chinx used to spend the night at my joint. We used to be making music and shit. People really don’t hear us on songs together because at the time he used to come stay in my spot, I was on trial, so I was goin’ through my own shit, I was stressed out, I wasn’t really making no music when I had started trial. So that’s the only reason people don’t hear us on songs together.”
Max also called for young black men to stop killing each other due tot he hostile climate between the black community and the police.
“They shooting us and getting away with it and we’re killing each other right on top of it.”
The Game’s search for the love on his life has been put on hold, and his tit-for-tat with Young Thug has something to do with it, TMZ reports.
While filming the show, titled She’s Got Game, he headed to New Orleans. The cameras followed him to a club appearance where he shouted threats at Young Thug during their brief feud. Sources reportedly said that Game also took his bodyguard’s gun and started waving it around, which scared the camera crew. They decided to go on strike when Young Thug posted a video on Instagram with a man in the back brandishing a gun as well. The crew reportedly felt that their lives were in danger.
The left coast rapper was supposed to visit Atlanta to continue looking for his special lady but it was then cancelled. It was agreed that no more filming in nightclubs would take place. No word on when they will start filming again.
