J.R. Smith needs to pay his bills. The Knicks guard has been ordered to pay $48,000 for a pair of Black Jesus pieces and other jewelry. It’s not a bill collector telling Smith to pay up, it’s a judge.
Don’t mess with Black Jesus … or YOU WILL PAY … just ask Knicks stud J.R. Smith, whose A$$ just lost a $48,000 lawsuit involving a diamond necklace that features an Afro-American rendition of the messiah. A jewelry company called Lemmerman’s sued Smith, claiming he ordered a bunch of bling back in 2010 — including a diamond chain, two Black Jesus pendants and some earrings — totaling $25,500 … but never paid. We’re told one Jesus pendant and chain cost roughly $15,000 alone. Lemmerman’s sued for $48,101 — which includes the jewelry bill plus interest and attorney’s fees — but Smith never responded to the suit … so a judge ruled in Lemmerman’s favor. Smith has now been ordered to pay the $48,000 asap … or else. Calls to Smith’s people weren’t returned.
It’s been over three years since the Clipse released their last album, Til The Casket Drops. The older of the Virginia rhyming brothers, No Malice, has revealed that a new projects is definitely in the works, but some details needs to be solidified first. The rapper formerly known as Malice spoke with Billboard about his brother Pusha T and their music plans for the near future, including a Clipse album thought to be titled As God As My Witness. ”It’s definitely [in] beginning stages, but Pusha and I have some serious things that we’re talking about and coming to agreement on,” said No Malice. “It’s a fitting title because pretty much everything that seems to be coming out has a religious theme… What I want the people to know is that, for me, this is not ‘cool’ — this is not a trend. This is the working power of Jesus in my life.” In June, No Malice plans to release his solo album, titled Hear Ye Him, via Re-Up Gangs. Though he has been more vocal about his God-fearing way of life recently, it has always been a part of his music, thus naturally creeping into Clipse’s, too. ”Here Ye Him is basically my take, my new direction,” explained No Malice. “A lot of people wonder if it was going to be gospel or Christian rap. I don’t really know what you would call this, but if you think anything’s soft about it, you’re going to have to wake up because I really believe there’s nothing touching this. It’s very real.” As for G.O.O.D. Music‘s Pusha T, his new album, My Name Is My Name, is also due out later this year. Let us know whether or not you’re looking forward to hearing No Malice’s new album in the comments.
Have you ever wondered how to properly throw up a gang sign or point one out? West Coast rapper, Game, gives you a comprehensive look on exactly how to gang bang in this video. Jayceon Taylor chopped it up with UberUrban and shows his handy work. This video helps you out if you want to spot a wannabe thug or correctly point out actual gangstas from tossing the menacing gestures. Bloods, Crips and each division of the gangs and their signs are explained in this viral video. ”I’m from Compton, really thugging. I done got shot throwing up gang signs. I got two dead brothers, that ain’t funny. RIP to my brother Charles and my brother Jovann who died recklessly. Got murdered, murder is still unsolved. That’s why gangbangin’ ain’t funny,” says the Jesus Piece rapper. ”So sometimes when you are throwing up your P or throwing up your B, you look like you are a bad man to me, or to a real gangster. You might want to watch it cause it gets kind of serious.” A proper disclaimer is aired at the beginning of this video not to try this outside of your home. However, something tells us this is going to come back to bite somebody in the butt very soon. Check out the full video down below.
Pitchfork TV returns with another installment of their very popular FRAMES series. This time, the publication catches up with Gary, IN’s own, Freddie Gibbs. Speaking of Gary, Gibbs tells the story of meeting the most famous person to ever come out of the small midwest city, Michael Jackson. “You would’ve thought Jesus came back. That was a real symbol of hope, just for that ni**a to come back because he hasn’t been back for a while. Gary ain’t got enough money to sing a note on the mic,” Gangsta Gibbs explained in the latest episode of FRAMES. “Mike came through the motherf**king KFC, dog. Bought all the honey barbecue wings. All the God damn original,” Gibbs says laughing. “He went through the drive through, ni**a, all you saw was him in the limo and you saw the God damn shiny glove stick his hand out the window and was waving at ni**as and s**t.” The story gets funnier as Gibbs, seemingly high as a kite, tells the website what the “King Of Pop” did once he received the chicken. Check out the latest episode of FRAMES below.
It appears that Kim Kardashian and her baby daddy had a “Come to Jesus” moment during their trip to Brazil. The reality TV star and her multi-platinum boyfriend Kanye West were in Rio de Janeiro to take in Carnival and posed like Jesus in front of the famous Christ the Redeemer statue.
50 Cent doesn’t think he, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo are linking up again anytime soon.
Completely contrary to what he said just weeks ago, 50 Cent says a reunion with Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo to form G-Unit probably won’t happen. ”Probably not,” admitted Fif in an interview with Ear Candy Mornings on Sirius Hip-Hop Nation. “I don’t know. You have people that go in different directions. ”If you have grown men involved in business transactions who are around each other… I’ve offered everything I could offer to G-Unit,” he continued. “I allowed them to be in front of an audience the entire time, to develop their own fan base, to recognize their attributes and their defects at that point. What do you do?” ”I don’t care what other people want. I give a fuck what they want,” concluded 50 bluntly. “A reunion? You can kiss my motherfucking ass as far as that’s concerned.”
Listen to the interview below :
This past summer, fans were disappointed to learn that the collaboration between Nas and Frank Ocean titled “No Such Thing As a White Jesus” had been lost when producer Hit-Boy’s hard drive has mistakenly taken from him. Now, in a recent interview with MTV, Hit-Boy said fans may finally be able to hear the track. Hit-Boy explained that the hard drive, which was returned to the “Niggas in Paris” producer this past November, was mixed-up with some of Kanye West’s engineers’ hard drives. With the hard drive now in his possession, however, Hit-Boy said he’s been working with Nas’ manager to find a proper avenue through which to release the song. ”[The hard drive] got mixed up with some drives that Kanye’s engineers had, and they finally they sent it back and I got the files now,” he said. “Nas’ manager reached out, and he’s excited. I don’t know exactly what’s gonna happen with it yet, but that song is gonna be heard by the world one day.” He continued, “Me and Frank went in the studio a while ago and he just wrote the hook, just blindly, we just wanted to create. He played it for Nas, and as soon as he played it he texted me and was like, ‘Yo, Nas went crazy’…it’s different from what you’re used to from me as for as far as the newer joints, as far as the energy joints. It’s like a real-life song.”
