Police Officer Who Shot & Killed Laquan McDonald Doesn’t Have The Cleanest Background


Over a 14-year bid as a police officer, Jason Van Dyke has had 18 complaints filed agains him; eight of which were alleged excessive force, two involved the use of a firearm-not including the October 2014 shooting of Laquan McDonald. Even with all of these complaints under Van Dyke’s belt, there is nothing that shows he was ever disciplined.

LAX Is Developing A Private Terminal Just For The Celebs


Los Angeles Airport is by far the most overrun with paparazzi, as it’s also the most likely airport to find a celeb at any given moment. Candid photos of your favorite actor or singer looking a mess in their travel gear hit the web daily, but lucky for them (particularly Kanye,) that may soon be a thing of the past.

Earlier this week, the Board of Airport Commissioners approved a private terminal at LAX just for celebs, so as to avoid walking amongst paparazzi and common folk alike. They’ll have to shell out between $$1,500-$1,800 to use it, but they’ll be privy to fancy lounges, special catering and separate security and border checkpoints. They’re also promised just 60 steps to their transportation, so there will no longer be that long walk where they’re harassed by paparazzi the entire way.

(Photo+Video) Chris Brown Gives Out 2,000 Thanksgiving Turkeys In Jamaica, Queens


Chris Brown was spotted Wednesday giving out Thanksgiving turkeys to residents in Jamaica, Queens. Brown and several friends, including 50 Cent, reportedly handed out 2000 turkeys out of the back of a truck to dozens of people. Breezy captured the event on photos and videos posted to his IG account. In one of the posts he challenged his fellow celebs to give back saying,

I honestly challenge the celebrities. We think about ourselves all the time and take everything for granted. Driving nice cars, jewelry, pretending to be something we aren’t. Let’s give back because it’s the right thing to do. #OHB

XO Rapper Belly Signs To Roc Nation


Canadian rapper Belly has been in the game for a minute now, dating back to an album titled The Revolution that he released way back in 2007. Since then, he’s worked a lot behind-the-scenes, and more recently, linked up with and forged a bond with fellow Canadian, The Weeknd. Together, the pair co-wrote six of Weeknd‘s songs – including his smash “The Hills” – and now, Belly is ready for the big leagues. His new deal with Jay Z‘s Roc Nation imprint will certainly help.

“I think I just got the right ears with it to the point where Jay Z was interested and heard it and invited me over,” Belly tells Billboard. “And we had a conversation and that was that, you know? A man’s handshake, that’s all it takes sometimes.”

Rich Homie Quan Counter-Sued By His Former Label, Think It’s A Game Entertainment

Rich Homie Quan

Back in August, Rich Homie Quan filed a lawsuit against his former label, Think It’s A Game Entertainment. In the $2 million suit, Quan accused T.I.G.‘s owner of stealing his money to buy himself a home in Atlanta, pocketing way too much from the deal Quan had signed with Def Jam for distribution of his singles, “Flex” and “Type Of Way.”

Now T.I.G. is firing back, and they say that their former client’s lawsuit is “baseless.” They’ve counter-sued Quan, accusing him of breaching their contract, and they’re also demanding an injunction against him from releasing any music, as well as prohibiting him from signing with another record label. This could get nasty!

(Photos) Boosie Badazz Posts (Then Deletes) That He Has Cancer

Boosie Badazz

It’s been an interesting week of posting-and-deleting for rapper Boosie Badazz. He kicked off the week with a rant about “gay sh*t” on television, upset that homosexuality is all over his screen ever since he came home from jail last year. He later deleted the post amid backlash (as one would expect,) and today, he’s revealed a much more serious issue: he’s reportedly been diagnosed with cancer in his kidneys.

“I need all my fans to pray for me,” Boosie wrote with a photo of himself at a dinner table. “Doctor just told me I have cancer on my kidneys. Prayer is power, that’s why I’m letting the world know prayfaboosie.”

Wu-Tang’s 1-of-1 Million Dollar ‘Once Upon A Time In Shaolin’ Album Has Been Sold


Early last year, the Wu-Tang Clan announced that they’d be getting together for a new album, though this time, it’d be much different than any other project they’d worked on. The 31-song Once Upon A Time In Shaolin was revealed to be a one-of-one, and the only way you could hear it would be by forking over a million dollars…or waiting for 88 years.

Welp, the option for the former is now gone, so you’ll have to wait the 88 years until its new owner is allowed to release it to the public. Though the buyer has not been revealed, they’ve been identified as a “private American collector,” and it’s said that they paid “millions” for the album. 31 brand new Wu songs and skits is not all they received, however.
