Rick Ross is in legal trouble for the second time this month. The MMG boss has been arrested on charges of aggravated battery and kidnapping. Rozay and his bodyguard, Nadrian Lateef James, fought and pistol-whipped with a man who was working on Ross’ new mansion. The kidnapping charges are due to someone inside the mansion’s refusal to open up the mansion’s gates upon the arrival of officers. The incident occurred two weeks ago but the U.S. Marshalls were called in by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department a few days ago as they often are in “high profile and dangerous warrants.”
Earlier in the month, Ross was arrested for marijuana possession following a traffic stop due to his tinted windows. Both arrests occured in Fayette County, Georgia.
On June 12 YG was shot at Studio City California. The rapper was working on his sophomore album at the time. Aside from some features here and there, YG has been relatively quiet and few details have been released about his upcoming album. The 25-year-old rapper sat down with Billboard to preview 8 songs from Still Krazy and open up about the shooting.
When asked about the incident, if he knows who shot him, and how many times he was shot YG replied:
A little incident. I got shot in my hip, but I’m all right…I don’t know, and it don’t matter. I got lucky because a main artery is right there, right around the groin. The bullet didn’t go that deep, and it didn’t hit any bones…Nah, I got shot one time. It was three bullet holes because it went in, went out and went back in again…It was not gang-related at all. It just happened out of the blue. We don’t know who did it, we don’t know why. We don’t know nothing.
“Twisted Your Fingers,” a song on the album is about him being shot and when asked if it was hard for him to write about the incident he said,
Was it hard to write about the situation? No, not at all. I mention it and talk about it on the record and let everyone know what and let everyone know whatever they going to know. I’ve been through real shit and I still go through real shit, and I made it in sticky situations and turned the negative into a positive.
YG went on to say that so far DJ Mustard has a song on the album but he’s still “figuring it all out.”
Riding off the success of his sophomore album, “To Pimp A Butterfly,” Kendrick Lamar is already discussig his next move. Plotting on his next project, the Compton MC spoke on what his third major label release will be about – or at least what we can expect.
I know exactly what I want to say next. Everything is going to make sense – not only to myself but to anybody who wants to understand life and music. Everything will make a little more sense.
He not only has us scratching our heads but our ears are itching to hear what more he can offer, musically.
