Former NOLA Mayor Brought Up On 21 Corruption Charges

Former New Orleans mayor, Ray Nagin who was mayor when Hurricane Katrina hit, has been brought up on 21 charges of corruption. Nagin rose to fame following his actions dealing with the aftermath of Katrina and making such remarks like NOLA would be a “chocolate city” as well as “God is mad at America.” He even wrote a book, “Katrina’s Secrets: Storms After the Storm.” Nagin plead guilty to the charges he is currently facing back in 2010 after his failed third attempt at being mayor. Although he won by a landslide when he ran to be mayor for his second term, his slow movement in rebuilding NOLA post Katrina is what ultimately made him lose his third run and drove him away from political offices in general. Nagin is being charged with a bunch of felonies including taking bribes. Find out more about his charges below. Julie A.

(Photos) Meek Mill Filed Court Papers To Sue The Philadelphia PD For WHAT !?!?

Damn though. Philadelphia PD f**ked up now! Meek Mill is suing his hometown police department, and more specifically officers Andre Boyer and Michael Vargas, because of his unnecessary arrest back in October. Police held Meek for nine hours before they let him go without any charges being pressed against him. While in custody the officers, “posted and published, or caused to be posted and published, on Instagram and other social media websites, depicting plaintiff in police custody, held plaintiff in custody against his will in a jail cell for approximately nine (9) hours, after which time plaintiff was released on November 1, 2012, at 4:30 a.m., without being charged with any criminal activity and having caused plaintiff to miss a scheduled promotional appearance in Atlanta, Georgia.” The courts papers are saying that his civil rights were violated in a major way. Meek (also known as Robert Williams – new to me, LoL) is suing for “anxiety and embarrassment associated with plaintiff being placed in a false light; and the anxiety and embarrassment of being seized, detained, confined and imprisoned against plaintiff’s will.” WoW! I say get them where it hurts – in their pockets! The police in Philly, Jersey, and NYC is always messing with somebody. What ya’ll think, should he sue or NOT? Let me know your thoughts. Drop down bottom and check out the court papers. JaaiR (JR)

(Video) The Truth With Elliott Wilson: Will Andre 3K Ever Make Another Album

For YN’s latest segment of “The Truth,” he weighs in on whether or not Andre 3000 will ever release another full album. Andre has been dodging an album since Outkast’s Idlewild back in 2006. Big Boi has been talking about a 3K album since 2010 when he was asked if we would hear new Outkast music. Recently it seemed after his verse on Tip’s “Sorry,” that Andre and Big Boi weren’t even really speaking then they both appeared on Frank Ocean’s “Pink Matter” and gave fans hope. That hope, sadly, was short lived when Andre straight out said that the music was not an Outkast project leaving many of us disappointed. For a while now, I have been thinking that we’ll never hear new music from Outkast and that Andre will not be releasing a new album, just a few verses here and there and it seems that YN has the same thought. Watch more below. Julie A.
