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.”

NBA Youngboy's Chain Snatched From Entourage Member in North Carolina

(FreshAsFrankie) While on a tour stop in Greensboro, North Carolina, NBA Youngboy and his entourage faced some issues involving one of the rapper’s chain. A video surfaced of the rapper performing when one of his chains was snatched. However, the video shows that the chain was not taken directly from the rapper, but from a member of his crew.

Youngboy addressed the crowd, saying “You see that chain you just took off my partner’s neck? That ain’t his chain, that’s my chain. I ain’t really tripping off that sh*t because I got too much money. I will shoot this b***h up.”

Another video shows the rapper saying “Don’t go on Instagram acting like you took that b***h off my neck.” From there, he goes into another song and continues on with the show. Watch above.

Mase Says He’s Not Cool w/ Cam’ron; Shook Hand Out of Respect

Mase Drops "The Oracle" Diss Aimed at Cam'ron

(FreshAsFrankie) Mase made it clear that he is still not cool with Cam’ron, via an Instagram post.

The post featured a screenshot of their exchange where they both said they are still brothers. Mase’s caption for the post completely went against that idea, with the rapper saying “We’re not cool. I shook his hand ‘cause I won. That’s it. As a man that’s what you do after you win unanimously. TheOracle #mase @RSVPMase.”

So after the exchange of diss tracks and the few memes tossed around, it seems that Cam’ron and Mase were simply having a brotherly spat. After Cam dropped his response record, “Dinner Time,” to Mase’s “The Oracle,” to which many fans felt was tepid at best, the two Harlemites apparently chalked the entire thing up as good fun. Mase commented on a post telling Cam:

YOU STILL MY BROTHER IF YOU WOULD TO BE… This was just for bragging rights #mase #theoracle

Killa Cam followed up by responding:

yea this was fun.. u still my bro too. Glad I get to brag lol. So when u leaving Harlem again? 2mr?

It seems as though this was just one of the classic cases of rappers using their platforms to address some underlying issues as well as testing their skills against one another. Everyone will have to wait and see if this is entirely over.

Flavor Flav Gets New Variety Show Called "Flavor Flav's Vegas"
(FreshAsFrankie) Although Flavor Flav is part of one of the most iconic and impactful groups of all-time, the Public Enemy hypeman may be just as popular for his stint as a reality TV star. Flav jumped on the celebrity reality TV wave before it became the entertainment cash-cow it has become today. But aside from a few appearances here and there, Flav hasn’t been in the public eye as much as before but that seems to be changing.

Flavor Flav has just signed on to star in his own talk/variety show Flavor Flav’s Vegas. He said, “I always dreamed of being a variety show host, and I think it’s about time, […] And Las Vegas needs a talk show. I want to be the one to bring Vegas its first real live talk show. It won’t just be me interviewing guests, but also I’m going to have a variety of people coming through my show that are in movies, television, etc.”

Flavor Flav’s Vegas will be produced by Leon Knowles who has worked on shows such as Arsenio Hall Show, The Talk, Last Comic Standing and America’s Got Talent. Fans should also be in for a treat as Teddy Riley will be the show’s music director.

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith Deny Gifting Tyrese with $5 Million
(FreshAsFrankie) Tyrese claimed that his close friends Will and Jada Pinkett Smith lent him $5 million so that he could ‘afloat’ amid his custody case with his ex-wife. The singer/actor made the announcement of the donation on his social media account on Sunday writing, “I’ve been on with lawyers all day but our family and our sister Jada-Pinkett Smith and my brother Will Smith just sent us 5 million to help keep us afloat.”

He went as far as to continue to post allegations that he was still waiting for the check from the couple to clear. However, according to TMZ sources close to Will and Jada vehemently deny giving Tyrese any money. Reportedly, The Smiths are worried that Tyrese is having a mental breakdown while in the midst of the court battle with his ex-wife over the custody of their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla.

Cam Newton Rolls Eyes at Reporter; Abruptly Walks out of Press Conference

Cam Newton Rolls Eyes at Reporter; Abruptly Walks out of Press Conference

(FreshAsFrankie) Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton‘s contentious relationship with the media was exacerbated Wednesday after the 28-year-old walked out of a press conference mid-interview.

Things were going smoothly until a Charlotte Observer reporter questioned Newton about his team’s offense.

“The big plays, the big chunk plays that get you that energy you’re talking about, is this offense – I know you had several at Detroit and New England – do you guys have the wherewithal to do that consistently, week in and week out?” he asked.

Newton, visibly annoyed, rolled his eyes and simply responded, “Next question.” As a reporter began asking one, Newton abruptly turned and walked away from the podium.

The Panthers quickly went into damage control, chalking the incident up to Newton believing he had answered enough questions for the week.

“Cam didn’t intend to be discourteous toward any specific media member,” the team said in a statement. “In his mind after answering questions for nine minutes he had fulfilled his obligations.”

Newton was last in the news a couple of weeks ago when he mocked a female reporter for asking him about his receivers’ routes.

“It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes,” he said.

The comment created an enormous backlash, with Newton facing accusations of sexism.

I’ma take all the flow and I’ma body it b***h,” she said. “One day I’ma sound like Kodak [Black], the next day I’m a sound like Meek Mill, the next day I’ma sound like Migos. I don’t give a f**k.”

Jackboy is a member of Kodak’s crew Sniper Gang. He has songs on YouTube with millions of views. He was arrested on several felony charges back in August and was chased by police with a helicopter, according to AllHipHop.com.
