Over the weekend, JoJo Simmons became the topic of conversation for all the wrong reasons when an image of him getting yoked up by Skull Gang member Hynief made it onto the Internets. Now, Hynief is explaining his side of story. Earlier this week, Simmons commented on the incident on video, forgoing any talk of retaliation to say, “All I been around is money all my life. I aint’ been around that thug or that gun sh-t all my life, that’s not what I do. What I do is I count money, and I f-ck b-tches, and I travel the world, and that’s what I do. I’m not on that violent sh-t.” True indeed.
We’ll keep the gist of this tomfoolery to a limit by giving you a quick run down of Hynief’s commentary.
Yes, he is down with Skull Gang but he is also “doing his own thing,” which is a mixtape called No Favors, coming soon.
As he stated on Instagram, Hynief gives no f-cks who JoJo’s daddy or uncle and also doesn’t care about getting blackballed by the music industry.
Juelz didn’t sanction JoJo getting run up on, Hynief says he just reacted.
Hynief says he didn’t punch JoJo, but he did “rough the lil ni–a up a little bit.”
He does not consider himself Juelz Santana‘s “goon.” Juelz is his “brother.”
Apparently, Hynief called Juelz while simultaneously having JoJo in a headlock.
Hynief and the dudes with him in the video (the Money Island Mafia), who look like they are about that life, give no f-cks about what the Crips were saying in JoJo’s video.
Also worth noting, we still don’t know who JoJo was calling.
When news hit of a Dipset 10th Anniversary show in New York, the Hip Hop world was more than excited. Now, during an interview with Hip Hop Since 1987, Juelz Santana explains why the show at B.B. Kings may not be the only reunion that fans can expect from the crew. ”We definitely going to get back in the studio and start working on some music and if the vibe is good and the music is coming out the way it’s supposed to come out. We going to put that record out,” Juelz said. The Dipset member also explained that the possible album would have to be “something close” to the first album the group dropped when they released Diplomatic Immunity in 2003. ”We’ve been talking about it, we want to do it right. The first Diplomatic Immunity album was a double-CD classic,” he said. “So if we give the people something, we got to give them something close to that.” Juelz also spoke about the March 25th anniversary show and explained that being back on the stage with his collegues feels only natural. ”It’s always good to be on stage with Cam and Jim,” he said. ”When you get on stage everything falls into place, everything feels good. I didn’t know 10 years went by so fast though, that’s a beautiful thing for us to be pushing that 10th Anniversary of Dipset, I’m proud of that. We set real high standards out there for crews so it’s a good thing.”
Watch the full interview below (via Hip Hop Since 1987):
Kat Stacks is out of prison and at it again, well sort of. Before prison, Kat was known for putting rappers on blast for pretty much anything. She posted pics of Soulja Boy with coke and a couple of times leaked rappers’ phone numbers to the public. She seemed to be everywhere before she got nabbed and taken into custody due to immigration issues. Now that she’s out of prison, she’s going at a new rapper but not for her usual bullsh*t. Kat set aim at Juelz for a comment that he made on her Instagram and Juelz fired back on Twitter. Apparently Kat’s close friend a rumored jump-off of Juelz, Jenna Shea, caught the comment and they didn’t appreciate it. Juelz made the comment in regards to Kat getting hit by a group of men and Kat dragged Kimbella’s name into he mix. I really was hoping this chick would just fade right away after being released but it seems that this bird just won’t go away. Watch what she said to Juelz below in the video and check his response in his tweets below video.
Juelz Santana got sentenced to two years probation after copping a plea deal.
Rapper Juelz Santana has been sentenced to two years probation for threatening his neighbor. According to Cliff View Pilot, his neighbor, whose name has not been released, initially intervened when Santana was beating his girlfriend and phoned the police in Englewood, New Jersey. He claims that Santana has since “threatened me with death” and was going to “kill me,” causing “problems in my marriage [and] my personal life. … I had to move out of fear. I pay more rent now. I’ve been having problems with my wife.” The Dipset member, who appeared in court yesterday and said nothing to the judge, dodged a prison sentence by entering a plea deal that “substantially” reduced possible penalties. The plea deal stemmed from three charges, two of which involve assaults. “One is an allegation against his girlfriend, the mother of his children,” said Assistant Bergen County Prosecutor Jessica Gomperts. “The second was an innocent bystander who intervened when James assaulted her.”
Santana only pleaded guilty to a single third-degree count of threatening the neighbor, who Gomberts says was “terrorized.” The rapper was allowed to keep his driver’s license because he needs it for work. “Probation would be a positive factor for the defendant,” said Superior Court Judge James Guida, “and incarceration an excessive hardship.” Juelz, who recently dropped his God Will’n mixtape, isn’t in the clear just yet. He is still facing chargesstemming from a police raid on his “Santana’s World” studios in Bergenfield two years ago, when cops found two loaded 9mm handguns, boxes of ammunitions and 17 dime bags of marijuana. He was alsoarrested for making terrorist threats and disorderly conduct in November 2011.
