Rapper Juelz Santana Pleads Not Guilty To Weapons And Drug Charges

Juelz Santana pleaded not guilty to drug and gun charges stemming from an incident at the Newark Airport last week. The rapper is expected to appear in court on April 9. Last week authorities revealed that they found a loaded .38-caliber handgun in Santana’s carry-on bag. Airport personnel also said that they found oxycodone pills that Santana did not have prescription for. Santana allegedly fled the scene after learning that his carry-on bag has been confiscated, leaving two bags behind. A day later, Santana turned himself in to the authorities. Santana is required to stay in jail while investigation is still ongoing.  The rapper nor his rep have  yet to release a statement regarding the incident.

Philadelphia DA Says Meek Mill Could Be Released Soon On Bail

The Philadelphia District Attorney’s office said Wednesday it may consider releasing rapper Meek Mill from prison on bail as he appeals his conviction, in the wake of claims that Meek’s arresting officer lied under oath. Prosecutors have said “in the event (Mill’s) conviction is reversed … the risk of an unjust or disproportionate sentence having been served exists,” the motion reads. “That risk increases as long as (Mill) remains in custody.” Mill’s attorney Joe Tacopina said he is “very pleased” by the DA’s filing. The latest news from the DA’s office comes shortly after the rapper’s mother publicly pleaded with him to “step in” and help her son. Mill was sentenced in November to two to four years for violating probation, stemming from a 2008 drug and weapon possession conviction for which he was in prison for eight months.

Woman Accusing Singer Trey Songz Of Assault Speaks Out

A woman who claims singer Trey Songz choked and hit her in a jealous rage last month is speaking out – and according to her attorney, they want Songz arrested. Andrea Buera, 27, described the alleged assault in her first public comments Tuesday, appearing alongside lawyer Lisa Bloom. Buera said of the alleged Feb. 17 assault, “I was attending an afterparty when Trey began yelling at me, choking me, punching me, and ultimately he knocked me to the ground.  While I was on the ground, he continued punching me, and he did not stop until his security pulled him off of me. People stood and watched, and some scurried away,” she said. “When I called an Uber, he threw my phones over a cliff.” Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Neverson, is cooperating with authorities, his lawyer Shawn Holley said Tuesday. Last week, a Los Angeles judge ordered Neverson to stay at least 100 yards away from Buera and not attempt to contact her directly.

Ultimately, that’s what we’re looking do do.” The camps will be funded by Edmonds and Murray, and Babyface hopes he can pass on his knowledge and show songwriters and producers what it takes to achieve their big break.

Lil Wayne Threatens Concertgoers After Fan Throws Water Bottle On Stage

Lil Wayne lashed out on stage after a fan threw a water bottle in his direction. The rapper was performing at the Jumanji Festival in Sydney, Australia, over the weekend where he made a threat about how his crew has pistols.  Wayne stopped the music to address the audience by saying: “Where I’m from… we don’t throw s–t on stage because all my n—-s got pistols and they don’t know who to shoot at.” He then declared that if the audience threw anything else he would exit the stage and be the “bigger person… because I don’t want to kill everybody.”  It is unclear how serious Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, was about his crew carrying guns, given that Australia has some of the strictest gun laws in the world.
