Former NBA guard Javaris Crittenton was sentenced to 23 years in prison and 17 years of probation on Wednesday after entering a guilty plea on charges related to the 2011 shooting death of an Atlanta woman.

Yesterday my bro Andre White celebrated his 5th Wedding Anniversary at 4th & Swift in downtown Atlanta. We were guest of Mr. Jerry Gresham and he made sure that it was a night to remember. When I pulled up to the restaurant my first thought was “this spot is DOPE” because it’s very hard to find parking in Atlanta so to have parking on the side of the establishment was a PLUS!
We were greeted by a very friendly staff that made sure we were taken care of. They even welcomed my 2 year old son and you already know that he is a handful. Check out photos of this great place with great food and make sure to stop by 4th and Swift!!

The most expensive seat—a fifth-row ringside view—was priced at $77,500. The “get-in” price, or cheapest ticket to attend the event, hit nearly $4,500 on Thursday.

According to Billboard, U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder ruled that Dr. Dre is entitled to be paid more royalities from the digital sales of his 1992 debut album than what he has been getting. The album can still be sold digitally, but Dre will now receive 100 percent of the monies from digital sales.
“For years, Death Row Records forgot about Dre when they continued to distribute his music digitally and combined his hits with weaker Death Row tracks in an attempt to elevate the stature of their other artists,” Dre’s lawyer Howard King wrote in a statement. “We are gratified that the federal court has unambiguously declared that Death Row has no right to engage in such tactics, and must hold all proceeds from these illicit distributions in trust for our client.”
