Oakland Is Going To Start Giving Reparations To Their Residents Who Have Marijuana Convictions


Weed is legal in Oakland now, but it wasn’t always, and there are many residents who have charges due to the popular (and harmless) drug. Back in May, Oakland City Council began plans to help boost their legal medical cannabis industry, which is projected to grow into a $40 billion industry in the U.S. by 2020. One of the proposals was that people who have been locked up for a weed-related charge – who are currently ineligible to have a legal license to sell weed because of their felonies – would not only be eligible, but moved to the TOP of the eligibility list as well. AKA, they’d be made a priority to approve first, as reparations for their previous charges.

(Photo) Precious! Ludacris Finally Shares Photo Of Daughters Cadence & Cai


Ludacris is the father to three beautiful girls – Karma, who was born in 2001 to Luda’s then-girlfriend, Cai, who was born in 2013 to a woman who Luda’d had a fling with, and Cadence, born last summer to Luda’s wife, Eudoxie. Up until now, Luda and Eudoxie hadn’t shared a photo of Cadence, and though we saw pics of Cai early on, we haven’t seen her in some time either, as Luda battled out rights with her mother in court (and continues to.) Finally, Luda shared photos of both Cai and Cadence last night at a charity event, and boy, they are definitely daddy’s twins! Check out the adorable pics below.

Dhea Sodano has been in the picture since 2011, though many keep thinking she’s gone as Wayne steps out with various women, most notably Christina in 2014 and 2015. However, Dhea’s always popped up for the most important moments in Wayne’s World – holidays, birthdays, big shows, etc. – and was once again by his side as he blew out the candles on his cake at home in MIA.

Spotify Is In Talks To Buy Soundcloud


Soundcloud is currently the streaming service of choice for most artists, as it allows their music to get out to the masses without anyone having to pay a subscription fee. Though they recently launched a paid service earlier this year, it remains separate from the free streaming, and the two have co-existed rather peacefully. That may change with talks of a new deal, however.

(Video) Beanie Sigel Addresses Getting Punched By Meek’s Crew


This whole Meek Mill vs. The Game beef keeps getting bigger and bigger, adding more people into the mix as it rolls along. Beanie Sigel jumped in last week, adding a few bars on Meek’s diss track to Game, and reportedly helping write the lyrics to Omelly’s part as well. When he disclosed that he’d helped, however, he was promptly knocked out by an affiliate of Meek’s, Teefy Bey.
