Teen killed in Greensboro shooting identified as

(FreshAsFrankie) Fantasia Barrino‘s dealing with another family tragedy — the death of her oldest nephew, Tyquan … TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources … the singer’s 18-year-old nephew died of multiple gunshot wounds Tuesday morning following an argument at a Greensboro, North Carolina residential complex that spilled out into the street.

Paramedics attempted life-saving measures on Ty, and he was transported to Moses Cone Hospital … but died shortly after. Cops have arrested a 21-year-old suspect, who’s been charged with first degree murder.

Barrino posted the sad news on her Instagram Tuesday, saying … “Auntie is So Sorry Baby. RIP to my Oldest Nephew Please Pray for his Mother and my Brother & his Stepdad.” Tyquan, who went by T.W., was the son of Fantasia’s musician brother, Ricco.

Ricco tells TMZ … he’s completely devastated, because he didn’t get to see T.W. in the morning Tuesday like he usually does, and now he’s gone.

It’s been a rough stretch for Fantasia’s family … her brother Xavier has been in the hospital for months recovering from a critical motorcycle injury, as well.TMZ

50 Cent Clowns Floyd Mayweather’s “Jumanji” Outfit

 50 Cent has trolled Floyd Mayweather Jr. for years, and the mending of their friendship after a tumultuous period between them doesn’t necessarily mean that he intends to stop. The hip-hop mogul just had to take a couple of moments out of his Saturday (February 10) to clown his TMT fam over the fashion sense exhibited in an image he hasn’t been able to get over.

For over a week, a photo of Mayweather standing next to Antonio Brown on the court before the Timberwolves recent game against the Bucks has been going viral – thanks to the bizarre aesthetic of their attire.

Mayweather and Brown were just a couple of celebrities in the house for what was a star-studded occasion leading to the Super Bowl in Minnesota. Despite being in the company of Gucci Mane, Rae Sremmurd, Lil Jon, coach Bill Belichick and others, it was the sporting world kings who stood out from the pack. Brown’s baby blue suit had some on social media wondering whether he was going Easter egg hunting, and Mayweather’s get-up had others cracking about him going hunting.

Champ I️ love you to death but where the f**k was you going in this outfit,” 50 wrote in the caption of his first Instagram post directed at Mayweather. He’d then put up a second image, which had the retired champ superimposed on a Jumanji poster. “Champ on his movie s**t that’s all. The Rock ain’t got shit on Champ,” the post read.

Kodak Black Talks About Street Life Being a Trap

 

(FreshAsFrankie) Kodak Black has had time to reflect on his life and circumstance while locked up on another disheartening parole violation. If one thing appears certain from how he opened up about it all in a recent series of tweets, it’s that he’s finally prepared to leave his past behind him and take better precaution about the company he keeps.

Kodak‘s most diehard fans have been kept content with the Florida rapper’s social media accounts maintaining a regular flow of activity since his return to Broward County Jail. From the release of his new track, “Erykah Badu,” to the posting of a new iced out Golden Acres 1800 Block medallion, the continuous music and materialism have served up proof that the grind won’t stop for the Sniper Gang family.

However, some of the more recent content surfacing on his Twitter page steers left from business and leisure and gets down to some of the personal demons he’s been dealing with. Tweets shared on February 7th, for example, speak philosophically about survival and sacrifice. On the 9th, the posts speaking on behalf of the rapper opened up about betrayal.

My Fake Friends Want me To Come Home So They Could Put Me Back In Jail .. And Even My Haters Screaming,” one tweet reads. The following tweet added: “The Streets Respect Failure and Stuff That Will Have You Doing Life In Prison.. Proving To Nobodies That You Still Hood.”

 

Kendrick Lamar Previews New Nike Cortez Collab

(FreshAsFrankie) After collaborating on a few pairs of Reebok Classics, Kendrick Lamar announced a switch from the brand to his partnership with Nike in the late summer of this year. In that time between wearing Vans and Nike’s Cortez silhouette, two shoes that are staples in fashion culture of LA, K. Dot has finally given fans a first look at his collaboration with the Nike. Of course, it would be a blood-red Cortez the rapper donned.

“DON’T TRIP. CORTEZ KENNY,” the rapper captioned the photo. Kendrick shared the preview of the show from backstage at LA’s Staples Center where he was in attendance for Kobe Bryant‘s jersey retirement ceremony. Kobe and Kendrick representing the greatness of the west coast recently did an interview together at Complex Con where they discuss their road to greatness.

Kendrick’s Nike Cortez houses a red, white, and black colorway with an accent ribbon on the top of the laces that reads “DON’T TRIP.” The Grammy-nominated is even throwing double entendres on his shoes. While representing the Black plight in his music, Kenny has also been sharing his appreciation for Chinese Culture and honors his alter ego, “Kung Fu Kenny”, the side of the shoe is embroidered with Chinese lettering.

Adrien Broner Offers Extra $86 in Child Support to Baby Mamas for Christmas

Adrien Broner Offers Extra $86 in Child Support to Baby Mamas for Christmas

(FreshAsFrankie) Just six days until Christmas, Adrien Broner shared a holiday message with the mother’s of his children on Tuesday (Dec. 19). The message was asking them, in addition to their monthly child support checks, if they would like an extra $86 this month to buy the children Christmas gifts. The boxer suggests that the check sent for the month of December should have been used to do gift shopping. Broner said if this generous offer is declined he’d be investing the money into Bitcoin.

The message reads:

“To all my baby mamas I send y’all monthly checks for my children if you don’t buy they Christmas gift with the money I provided I’ve saved 86$ more for y’all each so if y’all want it let me know if not I can keep my 344$ and buy more bitcoin.”

The 29-year-old then tagged his four baby mothers in the caption, “Just let me know Tesha Tiesha Shay Shay Talena” with the hashtag #BabyMamasMatter.

Following the post was a video previewing the video for his song “Pirate” off his latest mixtape Wanted, which dropped last week. Broner has since been promoting his freestyle of Tay-K’s “The Race.”

Do you agree with AB that child support during the holidays should be used to buy gifts for the children? Or do you feel like that’s an added expense? Let us know in the comments section below.
