G-Unit rapper Young Buck will serve seven months in prison after violating his probation.
His sentence was confirmed by Billboard earlier this week. Buck was sentenced in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday. He violated the conditions of his probation when he threatened to burn down the house of his ex-girlfriend. The rapper allegedly came to her home, kicked her door in and made some serious threats. Tennessee District Attorney David Rivera said that Buck was attempting to get back property that was his from her home. He was arrested after the incident and was told by the court that he was not permitted to have any contact with her. He violated those conditions when he called her more than 100 times.
Buck took to Instagram earlier this week to let his fans know that he was going back to jail by stating,“Things ain’t go as plan today. Lost my freedom again. Lord knows how much I’m gonna miss my Mother, children, my girl, my Real friends and family. I want @50cent @tonyyayo @kiddkiddrllnr @loydbanks AND ALL MY FANS TO HOLD ME DOWN!!!!See y’all soon.. STAY UP..AND WILL KEEP YALL UPDATED..GOTTA GO.”
Snoop Dogg stopped by The Breakfast Club this week and gave details on the railing collapse at one of his recent shows in Camden, New Jersey.
“It was a little accident. But you know, everybody was alright so, I can’t really speak on it too much, I was just hoping that nobody was seriously injured and nobody was,” Snoop said. “We reached out to the people that did get injured, and they [are] alright. And um, they know it wasn’t out fault.” The accident happened during Snoop’s tour with Wiz Khalifa. “When you [are] doing a concert and something like that happens, how do you deal with it? Right there on the spot? And then afterwards.”
Snoop said he wanted to know if the victims were ok after the accident, but security rushed them out of the building. The protocol for accidents makes it hard for an artist to show concern, according to the rapper. “I want to make sure that they’re ok. I’m just thankful that nobody was seriously injured,” he said. The rappers had to leave right after the collapse.
During the ‘Wu-Tang Forever’ era, a few members swarmed Tim Westwood’s radio show in the UK. For over 50 minutes, members RZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, U-God, Masta Killa and Method Man displayed their individual special techniques over various instrumentals. Suuuuu!

With the exception of a continued vendetta towards Hot 97, Drake closed his Summer Sixteen swing through Madison Square Garden with numerous gestures of love, one of which manifested itself in him bringing out a couple of New York groups whose presence together exemplifies unity. J. Cole was brought out to share the stage with his generational rival, as were the once estranged Fat Joe and Remy Ma. Then there was Dipset, who came out to rock the house with anthems “Oh Boy”, “Hey Ma”, and “Gangsta Music,” only, missing from the group long-anticipated to someday bury the hatchet for a reunion, was their Capo, Jim Jones. Many fans of the Harlem hit-makers were left resorting to the conclusion that beef persists between Jones and Diplomats original, Cam’ron. Cam’ron has since clarified that Jones’ exclusion wasn’t intentional.
“Juelz called me and told me that Drake called him and wanted us to come out … I seen that on the Gram too. People going, ‘Why y’all ain’t bring Jim up?’ It’s not my show. I don’t conduct the show. It’s not Cam presents Drake. Juelz called me and he said, ‘Drake wants you to come out to the show tonight.’ And it was that simple,” Cam told This is 50, about how their cameo came together. “Everybody wants a long drawn out story like yo, this happened, this happened…”
Unbeknownst to him, Jones actually was in fact in the building, enjoying the event with his son. He would Instagram a photo of his boy taking in the show, with a #DipSet hashtag in the caption that ended “humility is my biggest lesson.” Cam went on to remind listeners that Jones is a man who he came up with and continues to consider family, dismissing the idea that he’d take it as far as some have imagined he has. “Jim’s issues with me or whatever… I know Jim’s moms and kids, his son rather, and his sisters,” he said. “As hard as I would go against somebody else, I wouldn’t go hard on Jim like that. That’s still my man regardless of what people see in the public or media or whatever.”
