Jay Z Sued for $20Million

According to The New York Daily News, Star Boxing’s Joe DeGuardia and Banner Promotions’ Artie Pelullo filed a suit last week in New York State Supreme court. DeGuardia and Pelullo claim Roc Nation attempted to steal boxer Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade away from them.
The complaint suggests Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports offered Andrade $550,000 to reject a fight DeGuardia and Pelullo negotiated with Showtime. Roc Nation then planned to buy out his contract and become his new promoter, according to the suit.
Andrade pulled out of the Showtime deal, but Roc Nation is being accused of not paying Andrade the $550,000. The lawsuit also claims R.N. never bought out Andrade’s contract from DeGuardia and Pelullo.
“Roc Nation’s promise to Andrade was made under false pretenses, namely, that Roc Nation was negotiating to purchase Andrade’s contract from the promoters and thereafter would negotiate a more lucrative bout for Andrade on HBO,” states the lawsuit. “Ultimately, Andrade agreed to Roc Nation’s false inducements and spurned the professional boxing match the promoters had negotiated with Showtime.”
Andrade is the former World Boxing Organization light middleweight champion. His record currently stands at 21-0, 14 KOs. The Rhode Island native has not fought since June of 2014, and the WBO stripped him of his title for inactivity.

Andre 3000 Will Co-Star In The Second Season Of ‘American Crime’

Andre 3000, who worked with Ridley in the Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side, will play an architect named Michael Lacroix. He’s well-respected and smart, but is he smart enough to defend his son from the crime he’s accused of?

Ridley is more excited about his partnership with Andre than Lacroix probably will be about the situation he’s faced with.

“Personally, I couldn’t be more excited than to work again with Andre,” Ridley said in a statement. “He is an amazing individual, a true artist, and ‘All Is by My Side’ is one of the reasons I was given the reins on American Crime. Folks at ABC were absolutely moved by Andre’s performance in the film, and by the overall language of cinema we used in telling the story. It’s fair to say American Crime might not exist were it not for our previous collaboration.”

American Crime is nominated for a whopping 10 Emmy awards, so the great Andre 3000 might have his shot at one, too, if he delivers in his starring role. Regina King, a recurring star in season one, will return as Andre’s wife.

Cincinnati Officer Indicted For Murder of Samuel DuBose

(CNN)University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing was indicted Wednesday on a murder charge in the shooting death of Samuel DuBose.
If convicted, Tensing could go to prison for life, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said in a news conference. Deters played body camera footage of the traffic stop shooting that appeared to contradict Tensing’s version of what happened.
“I’ve been doing this for over 30 years. This is the most asinine act I’ve ever seen a police officer make — totally unwarranted,” said Deters. “It’s an absolute tragedy in the year 2015 that anyone would behave in this manner. It was senseless.”

Scarface: Deeply Rooted Sept.4th


Scarface’s twelfth studio album, Deeply Rooted will arrive on September 4. For the second time in Brad Jordan’s 25-plus-year career, the MC will release a studio album apart from Rap-A-Lot Records. While the follow-up to 2008’s Emeritus may be released on his own Facemob Music imprint, the trimmings of the LP’s 15 tracks look anything but low-profile.
Nas, Rick Ross, John Legend, and Cee-Lo Green are among guests, in addition to fellow former Rap-A-Lot artist Z-Ro, who appears twice. Papa Rue, who worked extensively with ‘Face on 2010’s Dopeman Music project also appears greatly involved. Producers are said to include longtime Scarface affiliates Mike Dean and N.O. Joe.
