Twenty-four years ago, Tupac Shakur began his year and a half sentence after being convicted of first-degree sexual assault. The rapper was incarcerated at the Clinton Correctional Facility in New York back in 1995 and while there, he married his girlfriend Keisha Morris. Unfortunately, their wedded bliss would dissolve into divorce just a year later.
Over the years, Tupac memorabilia have become hot commodities and have been auctioned off to the highest bidder. Heritage Auctions has gotten their hands on one of Pac's Clinton Correctional Facility identification cards and they're selling it off to the highest bidder. The I.D., which also holds the rapper's signature, was issued two weeks after Tupac was admitted and bids start at $2K beginning on July 1. While inside, Pac also drew some NSFW images for Morris that were recently auctioned off for $21,000.
Tupac served nine months of his sentence before being released. Just a few months before his discharge, the rapper sat down for an interview that has gone down as a historical moment in the rapper's short life. In it, Pac showcases his skills as a freestyling poet before he educates the masses on the the business of the prison system, what "thug life" really stands for to him, and the importance of weeding out the false narratives from people who say they care about underprivileged communities but have done nothing to help. Check it out below.

A Sheriff's deputy involved YG's recent run-in with the law is in trouble with his superiors, according to TMZ. We previously reported that over the weekend, YG was pulled over on the Sunset Strip after performing at 1 OAK nightclub. The rapper was accused of driving recklessly by weaving in and out of lanes while riding in his Lamborghini. 
Reports state that officers on the scene handcuffed YG because he became belligerent, but after he completed a field sobriety test and was shown to be sober, he was let go with a traffic citation. There were plenty of people around filming the incident, and in one video released to the press, a deputy gets into a verbal altercation with people on the street. He tells them to "shut up" before aggressively approaching them.
TMZ reports that they've spoken to law enforcement officials who say that the deputy in question was out of line and will be given counseling on how to deescalate situations. However, he will not be formally reprimanded nor will there be any sort of investigation into his unprofessional behavior.

The topic of reparations has once again gained traction following activist-author Ta-Nehisi Coates speaking at a U.S. House hearing on reparations. During the hearing, Coates clashed with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who stated a day earlier, “I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago for whom none of us currently living are responsible is a good idea. We’ve tried to deal with our original sin of slavery by fighting a civil war, by passing landmark civil rights legislation. We’ve elected an African American president.”
There are a number of celebrities who have spoken out in favor of reparations, but when TMZ caught up with former NBA star Charles Barkley, he wasn't sure how such a mandate would play out. The outspoken NBA on TNT commentator has often shared his political opinions and criticisms regarding American policies, and in the case of slavery in the United States, he believes that the government should, at the very least, issue an apology.
"It's a serious subject," Barkley said of reparations. "It's a very serious subject...I don't know how you would do it, that's the problem. It's a very serious subject and I don't think there's a right or a wrong answer. It can go either way, 'cause I don't know how you would do that actually."
"Too many people," he continued. "I don't know who would get it, who would not get it." The chatty cameraman kept encouraging the conversation as Barkley noted, "The government should apologize, but that has nothing to do with reparations, and I just don't know how you would do that."

Chris Brown Doesn't Want To Turn Over Phone In Assault Case To Protect Friends & Family: Report



We're officially on the countdown to the release of Chris Brown's highly anticipated album, Indigo. The record is set to drop this Friday, and as fans are preparing to lose their minds at midnight, Brown is still tangled in a court case that is hopefully working toward an end sooner than later. A woman only known as Jane Doe is suing Brown for an unspecified amount in damages claiming that when she went to his house for a party, she was given copious amounts of drugs before being sexually assaulted by one of Brown's friends. She also stated that he was walking around his home brandishing firearms.

Brown has adamantly denied her claims and has cooperated fully with the investigation, including allegedly allowing officials to complete a walkthrough of his home. Now, according to The Blast, Brown's accuser and her attorneys want Brown to turn over his cell phone to possibly track messages that were sent on the evening in question. The Blast claims to have obtained court documents where Brown is refusing the request because he fears that Doe will have full access to the private numbers of his famous friends and family members. In the documents, Brown reportedly states that the request is a form of harassment. A judge has yet to rule on the matter.

Over the years, Charlamagne Tha God has interviewed hundreds of influences, artists, politicians, and public figures on The Breakfast Club. The radio host isn't one to bite his tongue, a quality that has earned him a reputation as a comedian but has also gotten him into some trouble. There have been a few interview moments that have gone down in history as being awkwardly uncomfortable, and a handful that many thought would go sideways.
Charlamagne visited Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj's "Deep Cuts" to discuss various topics in the town hall forum setting, and to kick things off Minhaj asked him to name his most intense interview. There are a few we can think of: K. Michelle, Dame Dash, Desus & Mero, Onyx, and of course, Birdman.
"The most obvious answer would be the Birdman interview when he came in with like, six or seven guys and then all the goons filed out in a single file line," Charlamagne recalled. "But actually, the most intense one where I was like, alright this dude might knock my head off, was Nelly. You gotta think, Nelly is an athletic brother. He's in shape. He was very calm, and he just looked at me and he said to me, 'You know I keep retainers for guys like you cuz.' I understand that talk."
When asked what question prompted that response, Charlamagne said, "It was him being cold. I used to do this thing called 'The Freezer' where I was like, you're ice cold right now as a recording artist...he was actually on the show doing the interview and I told him he was cold to his face. Like, it wasn't too 'hot in here' for his career at that point. And I mean that with the best intentions Nelly. I still don't want no problems with you." Charlamagne also admitted that he never apologized but he did "shut the hell up."
Check out what else Charlamagne had to say about his anxiety, therapy, and healthy mental health practices below.

In a surprise move for fans, G-Eazy delivered a three-pack EP titled B-Sides on Tuesday morning. The 30-year-old rapper has been working on the follow up to his 2017 studio album The Beautiful & Damned, and until that project hits the streets, he's teased us with a trio of tracks. The only feature on this tracklist comes from Tyga who hops on the single "Bang." These two have previously collaborated with each other when the Legendary rapper had G-Eazy and Rich The Kid join him on his track "Girls Have Fun."
This time around, G-Eazy and Tyga deliver a summer jam that's meant to get the ladies on the dancefloor. Tyga loves to create party tracks crafted with the purpose of people having a good time, and both rappers do just that with "Bang." G-Eazy also recently reflected on his 2014 album These Things Happen by writing, "5 years ago today I dropped the album that changed everything for me and sent me all around the world, from the bay to the universe. Love to every single fan who’s been on this journey and supported from the jump! Can’t wait for the world to hear the next one..."
Quotable Lyrics
Believe me my belt got notches
Safe full of diamonds, a couple nice watches
Made some mistakes and they think they can stop us

G-Eazy Drops Off Three-Track EP "B-Sides"

   



It's been two years since G-Eazy has dropped a studio album and it looks like fans will have something new coming soon. The rapper has released new music since 2017's The Beautiful & Damned, including "West Coast" with YG, Blueface, and ALLBLACK as well as hopping on Chris Brown's "Wobble Up" with Nicki Minaj. While he hasn't fallen out of sight, fans are still ready for him to delvier his next record. 
The Bay Area artist is making sure that his supporters get a little taste of what he's been working by releasing a three-track EP that he simply titled B-Sides. The trio of songs only has one feature: Tyga. His collaboration with the Legendary rapper is a summer banger with Tyga holding down the catchy hook, while "Spectacular Now" is a more thoughtful, introspective track. Meanwhile, "It's Eazy" leans on the familiar Bay Area sound as G-Eazy boasts about his money and status. Check out the three-pack and let us know what you think.
Tracklist
1. Bang ft. Tyga
2. Spectacular Now
3. It's Eazy

The 2019 NBA Awards are a wrap and it was an emotional night for the winners. We previously reported that Shaquille O'Neal hosted the ceremony and began the event with a rap performance and opening monologue. The highlight of the evening was the Most Valuable Player award that went to Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks. At just 24-years-old, Antetokounmpo goes down in history as the third-youngest player to ever receive the award. He's also the second from Milwaukee team.

I'm going to do everything to help my team win. Every day that I step on the floor I think about my dad and that motivates me and pushes me to play harder and move forward. Even when my body's sore, even when I don't feel like playing, I always show up and do the right thing."

Prepare yourself for another Rolling Loud festival, this time in California's Bay Area. The hip hop music event recently took place in Miami and had its share of controversial moments. There were reports of gunfire, which officials claimed were false, resulting in a stampede of concert-goers trampling over each other to reach the exits. Lil Wayne reportedly dropped out of the show over security probes and Kodak Black was arrested before his performance and is still behind bars.
Hopefully, this next go-round will be smoother than the last as the festival has announced its Bay Area lineup. On Saturday, September 27, fans will enjoy the sounds of the Bay's G-Eazy along with Future, 21 Savage, Blueface, Gunna, Trippie Redd, Ski Mask The Slump God, SOB x RBE, Megan Thee Stallion, Yung Bans, Young Dolph, Kamaiyah, and surprisingly, Kodak Black is on the bill.
On Sunday, September 28, the lineup includes, Migos, Lil Uzi Vert, Juice WRLD, Playboi Carti, Tyga, Nav, Young Thug, Lil Yachty, DaBaby, Lil Mosey, Curren$y, Lil Gotit, Rico Nasty, Lil Keed, and more. Rolling Loud will soon be introducing their first ever New York event, so we'll keep you updated when more news is announced, along with their Los Angeles shows. Tickets for the Rolling Loud Bay Area goes on sale this Friday.

Before taking to the 2019 BET Awards stage on Sunday, Migos spent a few moments chatting with Entertainment Tonight on the blue carpet. The rap trio was questioned about their latest single "Stripper Bowl," a song inspired by a party of the same name that went down earlier this year. There were rumors that there was $500K spent at the exotic dancer-centered event, and Migos confirmed that the gossip was indeed true.
"We just wanted to have fun [and] enjoy our time," Quavo said. "Just being a great label, a great team, a great group. We got a lotta guys performing tonight from our label and we just want to enjoy a night in the town and bring all the money, bring all the ladies to Atlanta and just have fun. It's what we do." Takeoff added that because they had the Super Bowl in Atlanta, the only thing to do was to host a Stripper Bowl in their hometown.
ET's Kevin Frazier also wanted to know if Migos was going to contribute any music to Hustlers, the movie Cardi B is currently filming. "[She's] holding it down," Cardi's husband Offset said. "Can't give you all the shhh. I don't know, what you expect. Gotta wait and see." When asked about Cardi's legal issues, he said, "Nah, everything's good. We're gonna have the greatest performance. We're finna rock the stage. It's finna be beautiful."
After confirming that they would be performing "Clout," Frazier pressed the topic of Cardi's legal problems as he asked about them once again. "We blessed," Offset said before Quavo interjected in an attempt to shut down the conversation. Watch it all go down below.
