Rapper 6ix9ine arrested after allegedly choking 16-year-old

He was reportedly detained by police at JFK Airport... Rapper 6ix9ine (also known as Tekashi69) has been arrested by police in New York in relation to a outstanding warrant from Texas. The arrest is believed to be connected to an alleged altercation that occurred in January 2018. A 16-year-old claimed that they were choked by the musician, real name Daniel Hernandez, at Houston’s Galeria Mall. Representatives for the rapper are yet to comment on the arrest. The star’s arrest was initially reported by TMZ, before subsequent confirmation from the New York Police Department. He was reportedly detained by police at JFK Airport as he returned from his European tour. Although achieving prominence with the song ‘Gummo’, 6ix9ine’s career has been fraught with legal issues. In 2015, he pled guilty to a felony count of a use of a child in a sexual performance. The charge originated from videos that featured a 13-year-old girl. In one video, she is seen naked and sitting in the rapper’s lap. In another, Hernandez is seen  “making a thrusting motion with his pelvis and smacking her on her buttocks“ while the girl performed oral sex on another man. In May this year, he was also detained for assaulting a police officer and driving without a license.

Lil Kim Throws Major Shade at Nicki Minaj

The beef that never ends, Lil Kim has taken another shot at Nicki Minaj in a countless exchange of words and verses between the two female emcees dating all the way back to 2007. I have to laugh. Spilling all the tea on my documentary. ?☕?♥? — Chun-Li (@NICKIMINAJ) June 20, 2018 This eleven-year beef started back when Nicki Minaj was accused of stealing a classic 1996 Lil Kim look for her 2007 mixtape Playtime is Over. Kim decided Nicki was impeding and stealing her image, while Nicki claimed she was simply just the next biggest rapper to take over the game. Lil' Kim says she "doesn't know" Nicki Minaj as she praises Cardi B. ? pic.twitter.com/IlMPUSh6o9 — Entertainment Tonight (@etnow) June 22, 2018 Nicki started calling herself the "Queen of Rap," and the two exchanged diss tracks for the next three years. In a 2010 interview with ​Power 105.1, Lil Kim said the two will never be able to make amends. When asked on the red carpet by ​EW for Paris Hilton's Boohoo fashion line Thursday night (June 21) what she thought of Cardi B and Nicki Minaj,  Lil Kim reignited the beef, stating, "You know, Cardi is my girl! I don't know the other one." "Cardi is my girl and so I'm so excited for my girl Cardi," she continued to praise the rapper. "I can't wait for her to have the baby. I love you, Cardi!" The truth of it all, is that there would be no Nicki Minaj without Lil Kim's legacy, and while Lil Kim expects "homage" or Nicki bowing down, there is a place in hip-hop for more than one female MC to dominate, and that's exactly what's ​happening again with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B in 2018. Their ​beef started in a similar way, with Nicki expecting love or homage to her legacy when Cardi took the scene. like Lil Kim and Nicki appearing on Birdman's "Grindin' Making Money" despite feud rumors, the same happened on Migos' "Motorsport (feat. Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.") With Kim refusing to acknowledge Nicki's existence, expect the decade-old beef to have Nicki rearing the dungeon dragon back out once more.

We were not being told where he was and couldn't get the full picture. Even from the doctor. My mother was worried sick." The 63-year-old added, "He's very very frail, he doesn't have long.

Controversial hip-hop hitmaker XXXTentacion was shot and killed on Monday in Florida, Broward Sheriff's Office confirmed. He was 20 years old.

TMZ first reported news of the rapper's death. XXXTentacion (real name Jahseh Onfroy), was reportedly leaving a motorcycle dealer in his car when a gunman opened fire, according to TMZ... Video footage circulating on the Internet appeared to show Onfroy lying in his car motionless following the shooting. TMZ reports that the police received a dispatch call describing a pair of suspects who drove away after the shooting. Xxxtentacion has been shot dead. #tmz #xxxtentacion A post shared by TMZ (@tmz_tv) on Jun 18, 2018 at 3:19pm PDT According to a statement from the Broward County Sheriff's Office, officers investigated "a developing incident regarding a Shooting located at: 3671 N. Dixie Hwy., Deerfield Beach. Regional Communications received a call of a shooting at the above location at 3:57 p.m. An adult male victim was transported to an area hospital." The Broward County Sheriff's Office subsequently tweeted that "the adult male that was taken to the hospital has been pronounced dead" at approximately 5:30 p.m. A representative for the rapper did not immediately respond to a request for comment. XXXTentacion’s rise began at the end of 2015, when the then 17-year-old rapper uploaded “Look At Me!” to SoundCloud. The song – an aggressively abrasive track that lasts just over two minutes – would become his calling card. It sounded like nothing else in hip-hop – the beat was pure noise and XXX's vocals are more screamed than rapped – and catapulted him to success over the course of the next year. XXXTentacion quickly became the face of SoundCloud Rap, a nascent, if ill-defined, genre of music that sprang out of South Florida via a loosely affiliated collection of young artists that prized raw emotionality and bluntly functional songwriting over anything else. In “Look At Me!,” the scene had its first hit, and in Onfroy, its first star.

(LISTEN TO AUDIO) BEYONCÉ AND JAY-Z JUST MADE EVERYONE GO ‘APE SHIT’ WITH A SURPRISE JOINT ALBUM

This is not a drill: Beyoncé and Jay-Z just dropped an entire joint album without any announcement or hype whatsoever. Because it's not like music's most powerful couple needs album promo anyway! Everything Is Love abruptly hit Tidal on Saturday afternoon (July 16) under the name The Carters. The collaborative album spans nine songs, clocks in at just over 38 minutes, and features both Bey and Jay on every track. One of those cuts, "APESHIT," already has a full-length music video that's also available on Tidal. The cinematic vid was shot on location at The Louvre in Paris, and was teased by Beyoncé on Instagram. A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on Jun 16, 2018 at 2:29pm PDT Rumors about a Bey and Jay collaborative album have long swirled, and they escalated in March when the couple announced their joint stadium trek, On The Run II. The tour kicked off earlier this month in the U.K. and begins its North American leg on July 25. Looks like fans are going to have a lot of new music to get them hyped before then. If you don't have a Tidal account — and somehow aren't succumbing to the pressure to subscribe — you can listen to 30-second previews of the new songs below. Happy listening!
