New Music: $ilk Money feat. André 3000 – ‘Decemba (Remix)’

Finishing off Septemba, André 3000 teams up with $ilk Money for a remix to “Decemba.”

Things get raunchy on the track, as Mr. Benjamin tells a story about his one-night encounter with a law enforcement official.

“The deputy spoke in a flirty tone,” he raps. “Dirty songs / She knew ’em all / She let me escape.”

And afterwards, 3 Stacks flexes “Da Art of Storytelling” to talk about their lovemaking and his demise. “I got my nut off,” he rhymes. “So there’ll be a part 2.”

The remix may be a surprise to some, but 3 Stacks even surprised the Divine Council crew’s Silk Money when they first met.

“I remember when we first met Andre,” he told Rolling Stone. “That shit blew the fuck out my mind. I didn’t know who the fuck this ni**a was. I was like, ‘This ni**a look just like André 3000.’ And it deadass was André 3000. He was like, ‘What’s up? I’m big fans of y’all.’ I was like, ‘We big fans of you!’ He sat next to us eating tomato soup and shit. That ni**a flew from Texas to New York just to see us perform. He was saying how we remind him of OutKast because he ain’t never heard anything like us. And I was blown away.”

Dre has been busy of late. In recent months, the ATLien has collaborated with Frank Ocean (“Solo Reprise”) and Travis Scott (“The Ends”). Plus, he’s got two guest spots on Kid Cudi’s now-delayed album Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin’.

DJ Mustard stays cool with his sophomore album Cold Summer, which is now available at all digital retailers.

Surprising fans with the impromptu release, the sequel to 2014’s 10 Summers finds the super-producer back in cahoots with his usual musical partners — YG, Ty Dolla $ign, and RJ — along with a bevy of superstar guests including Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, John Legend, Young Thug, Quavo, Jeremih, and more.

“This past year I’ve grown a lot, both as a producer and a DJ. You can hear it in my music,” said Mustard. “Touring oversees with Rihanna and seeing the fans I have all over the world inspired by me — it was motivation to release this album and not let them down.”

Fans got their first taste of Cold Summer earlier this year, when Mustard dropped his Nicki Minaj and Jeremih-assisted lead single “Don’t Hurt Me.”

Right on time, Mustard unleashes the tundra. Bundle up and stream Cold Summer below.

Officer Who Shot Terence Crutcher Claims She Went Deaf During Incident

The attorney representing Betty Shelby, the female officer who shot and killed Oklahoma man Terence Crutcher claims his client lost her hearing temporarily during the incident.

The lawyer claims Shelby suffered from an “auditory exclusion” during the shooting and wasn’t able to hear that her colleague Tyler Turnbough was ready to subdue Crutcher with his taser, according to The Grio. “She doesn’t have any recollection of that at all,” he said. The lawyer explained an auditory exclusion as a “phenomenon that sometimes occurs in stressful situations because the person experiencing it is so focuses on the critical incident.”

Using the impairment, Wood attempted to justify Shelby’s actions because she never had a reason to believe that Crutcher didn’t have a gun. “If you think someone has a gun, you don’t get your Taser out,” he said. The probable cause affidavit for the case tells a different story, one her defense is trying to undo. “Shelby reacted unreasonably by escalating the situation from a confrontation with Mr. Crutcher, who was not responding to verbal commands and was walking away from her with his hands held up, becoming emotionally involved to the point that she overreacted.”

“The video….clearly showed that Terence Crutcher did not have a weapon, that Terence was not belligerent, that Terence had his hands up, that Terence was not a threat,” said attorney Damario Solomon-Simmons who reps the Crutcher family. “When we saw that video, we knew there was no reason for Terence to be shot down in the street.”
