Meek Mill wants to end his solitary confinement tenor and be placed with the general population at the prison he is currently housed.
Attorneys representing the Philly rapper filed legal docs this week requesting that he removed from solitary confinement because it can be detrimental to his mental health. According to his legal team, he is being mistreated because of his celebrity status and that is just not fair, TMZ reported. Officials say his solitary confinement is for his own safety.
Meek Mill is currently placed in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day and officials are saying that its the only way to protect him other inmates who intend to do him harm. But his attorneys are arguing that being in confinement for that amount of time has proven to be detrimental to the human psyche. Lawyers also argued in their legal docs that confinement is affecting his creativity because he has been writing and exercising and this is hindering him from effectively doing both.
As for the argument about his safety from other inmates, Meek’s attorney says that he will be respected being a part of the general prison population because of his celebrity status and past work in his community such as his willingness to give back. Meek Mill was sentenced to 2-4 years in a state prison for violating his probation by getting arrested twice this year. Although both cases were eventually dismissed, a judge still rules that he must go to prison for probation violation. The ruling and sentencing sparked outraged from the rapper’s fans and some of his celebrity peers who called the sentencing heavy-handed.
Meek Mill’s attorney says that the judge has been carrying an age-old grudge against the rapper because he once refused to remake a Boys II Men song that she asked him to do and also refused to work with a local artist manager that she has been linked to. Meek turned himself into authorities on November 8 when he started his sentencing.
Jennifer Hudson is back on the market after parting ways with her fiance of 10 years, David Otunga.
PEOPLE broke the news on Thursday citing a statement from the singer’s publicist that she has received a protective order against Otunga and that the couple split some months ago. “Today, Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé. Jennifer’s actions are solely taken in the best interest of their son,” the statement reads. The fitness model has remained silent about the split.
Jennifer Hudson, 36, and David Otunga, 37, have been dating since around 2007 and has an 8-year-old son, David Daniel Otunga Jr. The couple got engaged in 2008 a little less than a year of dating after Otunga surprised the R&B singer and popped the question. She said yes, but a wedding was never forthcoming.
In 2009, they welcome their first and only child and have remained together ever since despite not getting married. After getting engaged in 08, everything seems to be going well for Jennifer Hudson until tragedy struck her family. Around a month after she got engaged, her mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson, were fatally shot to death inside their Chicago home, while her 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, was found in the backseat of a car dead.
The singer’s former brother-in-law was convicted for the murders in 2012 and sent to prison.
Wiz Khalifa made headlines earlier this week when he told his fans that lean is lame.
In a PSA on his Instagram page a few days ago, Wiz called out rappers who regularly brags about drinking lean, also known as sizzurp. “When a lot of people follow one trend, or find themselves doing the same thing that everybody else is doing, you don’t really get somebody who speaks for the other side,” Khalifa said. “So I’m just going to go ahead and speak for the other side – lean is lame.”
Since Wednesday night, hip hop has been mourning the death of rising SoundCloud rapper Lil Peep who passed away of apparent drug overdose from anxiety med Xanax. His death renewed the call for young rappers to stay off drugs amidst a growing opioid epidemic in America. In an interview with Complex, Wiz Khalifa also spoke on the young rapper’s death and what it means for hip hop and drug use.
“I just feel like somebody has to speak up for people who don’t believe in that, or are really tired of seeing it,” the “See You Again” rapper said. “It’s unfortunate that Lil Peep had to die and stuff like that, but these are the things people are gonna start seeing and keep happening if they don’t really relax and fall back. I just want to be the responsible person and say something.”
Wiz also said that he got a couple friends that are drinking lean to this day and he tells them all the time that it’s wack. Perhaps Wiz Khalifa will bring more responsible rappers on board for a case to put an end to drug use in the culture and stop more young men and women from dying from drug overdose. Lil Peep is just the latest victim among celebrities, but ordinary people die everyday from drug use.

The female rap veteran is now a co-host of The Talk and on Wednesday she opened up about Nicki Minaj racy photo shoot for Paper Magazine where she posed semi-nude just barely covering up her ass-ets. According to Eve, Nicki is a nice person who is incredibly talented, but for her, she just can’t support these photos. The barbz weren’t too happy and went on the attack on Twitter.
“For me personally, as I started coming up in the business, I started realizing that young girls were looking up to me and younger people were looking up to me, and that, not that you want to be a role model, but it becomes what you become, it is what you are,” she said. Knowing how vicious Nicki Minaj fans can be, Eve ensure to let them know that she has nothing but love for The PinkPrint rapper. “As I’ve gotten older,” she added. “I’d just rather be a voice that’s uplifting. I can be a voice for those girls that might not have a voice, in a different way without showing myself off. For the Nicki fans, I love her, respect her. Go women in hip hop. It’s not my thing. I just don’t think it’s right. Personally.”
Eve shot back at Nicki Minaj’s fans on Twitter saying, “A lot of ya’ll need to calm down AND LISTEN to what I said. I am speaking from the place I am TODAY as WOMAN and how I feel NOW!” She also retweeted a tweet from one of her fans that told her that she doesn’t have to further explain herself.
“You don’t have to explain yourself to these kids. you clarified that on the show already. they hear what they want,” the tweet reads.
A lot of ya’ll need to calm down AND LISTEN to what I said. I am speaking from the place I am TODAY as WOMAN and how I feel NOW!!!

Eve is the stereotypical black person that likes to forget where she came from and turn her nose up to anything that doesn't fit her new 'persona' . Nicki Minaj doing the paper magazine shoot is nothing compared to her past. pic.twitter.com/z2nwHp2q7M

Ok Eve, Idk if it’s a good look “in this climate” to shame another successful black FEMALE rap artist for embracing her sexuality. Nicki Minaj ate that photo shoot and gave you CONFIDENCE in an era of slut shaming. Y’all trippin’ she a grown ass woman

SoundCloud rapper Lil Peep has reportedly died from a drug overdose, he was 21 years old at the time of his death.
The news came as a shock to many hip hop fans who have been following his music on SoundCloud over the past year.

Lil Peep reported took the drug on his tour bus where someone found him passed out. He was rushed to a local hospital where he was first listed in critical condition before news broke that he died. According to one person on social media who was on the scene, the rapper’s best friend Bexxy was standing outside the venue crying uncontrollably while yelling that he doesn’t want to be alive. He also told fans on Twitter that police have cautioned off the tour bus and treating it like a crime scene and fire and ambulance was on the scene as well.
Lil Peep, whose real name is Gustav Åhr, is known for singles like “Benz Truck,” “We Think Too Much,” “The Way I See Things,” “White Wine,” and “Star Shopping.” He is well known for mixing elements of rock with rap music. Some of his fans are also saying that he has been battling depression for quite some time and that may have contributed to his death. Peep released his first mixtape, Lil Peep Part One, in 2015 and in that same year he released two other mixtapes, Feelz and Live Forever.
