Waka Flocka Flame Discusses Shooting

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame has addressed the last Tuesday (January 19) shooting in College Park, Georgia that left him injured.

During an interview with Atlanta radio station, Hot 107.9, Waka says that the incident was a hit and the suspect was sent to kill him, but got scared.

"I really can't breathe that good but I'll break it down right now," said Waka. "All I know is somebody was sent to kill me but he was so scared he let me get out the car - he hit me in my arm - trust me, he could have did his job. That's the word out to him and his people. I'm straight though, I just broke one of my ribs - I'll be out there. Shout out to everybody that's been hating on me."

So Icey associate DJ Holiday explained to XXL the extent of Waka's injuries last Thursday (January 21) and said that the 23-year-old rapper, whose real name is Juaqin Malphurs, is making good progress.

"He got shot in the arm and the other one hit him in the shoulder and it moved around and hit him [near his] lung...so he has a hard time breathing and moving. The bullet is lodged on the right side of his chest up under his arm, and that's where the most trauma was. He is a tough dude, [and] he makes jokes about it."

Waka was shot early Tuesday afternoon while at a Carwash on Old National Highway in College Park, GA by an unidentified assailant in what was initially thought to be a botched robbery.

T.I. Back In The Studio, Releasing New Album In 2010

T.I. is back in the studio and working on releasing a project in 2010, according to producer Jim Jonsin.

The self-proclaimed King of the South and Jonsin collaborated together in the past on Whatever You Like off of 2008's Paper Trail. As for the future, Jonsin says Tip is back like he never left and that right now his schedule permits him to work during the week and not on the weekend, but an album will be out this year.

"It doesn't seem like he missed a beat," said the producer during an interview. "He was so upbeat, his spirits were up, and he's excited to be out and working. He hasn't changed, he sounded exactly like he did when I talked to him months before he went in. He's back in the studio. I sent him some music via email. He can work during the week and not on the weekend, I believe. He's definitely working on an album for this year right now."

Music executive Kevin Liles tweeted about T.I.'s return to the studio shortly after Christmas of last year, but deleted the message shortly thereafter.

"My right hand went home to visit family & found his way to the studio. He said, 'Why wait for 2010, get it in now'? Love the attitude!" read the tweet.

Second Earthquake Hits Haiti

A 6.1 magnitude earthquake rocked Haiti on Tuesday (January 19), shaking buildings and sending panicked people running into the streets only eight days after the country's capital was devastated by a previous quake. The US Geological Survey said the quake hit at 6:03 a.m. about 35 miles west of the capital, near the town of Petit Goave.

Wails of terror rose from frightened survivors who are still coping with the cataclysmic aftermath of the 7.0-magnitude quake.

Prime Minister Jean-Marx said the government was sending planes and an overland team to check out the situation in Petit Goave, the centre of this morning aftershock.

Hundreds of thousands of Haitians remain homeless, hungry and in mourning - most still waiting for the benefits of a nearly $1 billion global aid campaign that has brought hundreds of doctors and thousands of troops to the impoverished Caribbean nation.

According to sources, at least one woman died of a heart attack, according to Eddy Thomas, private undertaker. She had a heart condition and the new quake finished her he said while pushing her body along the street on a mobile stretcher.

Lenis Batiste who is camped in Port-au-Prince with his two children said the latest quake felt really strong. "Each aftershock is frightening, we fell it right (pointing at his stomach) because after the last Tuesday you never know how strong it is going to be he said.

Ja Rule Facing 3 Years In Prison

Rapper Ja Rule, 33, appeared in New York City court yesterday (January 20) in an attempt to suppress evidence in his weapons-possessions case, but Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Richard Carruthers disagreed with his attorney's arguments and refused to throw it out.

The case stems from an arrest following a police stop after a July 2007 concert. After a full search of the car police found an unlicensed loaded .40 cal pistol and a small amount of marijuana. While in court yesterday, Ja Rule's attorneys argued that the search of the rapper's Maybach was unjustified, but prosecuted pointed out that the car had no insurance and a suspended registration.

The hearing was not a complete lost, however as the judge did dismiss Ja's statement to the police regarding the marijuana in his pocket. Ja Rule, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, has pleaded not guilty to the weapons-possession charge, which carries a minimum sentence of 3,5 years in prison.

According to the New York Post, following the hearing, Ja Rule's defense lawyer Stacey Richman said, "We disagree with the decision, but we'll tend to other issues now."

Those others issues include trying to discredit the methodology investigators used to match an extremely small amount of DNA retrieved from the gun to Ja Rule. He will remain free on bail until his next court date on March 3.

Markice "Kesan" Moore from MTV's reality show From G's To Gents turned himself in to police yesterday (January 20) after being sought by the Cobb County, GA police since last Thursday (January 14).

Kesan also revealed that there was an incident in July 2009 when his daughter fell out of her bed and broke her wrist while under his supervision, according to him that is the only accident he is accountable for. As far as the delay in turning himself into the police, he claims that he need time to "get everything in order" before going in.

Suge Knight Sued For Child Support

Former owner of Death Row Records, Suge Knight, is being sued for child support by the mother of his four-year-old child, Taz Maree Knight.

Tammie Renell Hawkins filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior court seeking support for Taz Knight, who was born in May 2005, but according to TMZ, by California law, support is based on the presumed income of the person coughing up the dough. According to documents, Suge's net income is a little over $1,200 a month, and therefore the most Hawkins can get monthly is $302.

The last couple of years have not been kind to the former rap mogul. Suge was once the head of Death Row Records, which at its peak earned over $100 million annually, and launched the careers of such artists Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Tupac Shakur, and Lady Of Rage. In 2006 though he was forced to file for bankruptcy, and eventually lost the record label.

The once most-feared man in the music industry has also been the butt of jokes, and target of shots from rappers. Recently in a freestyle, California rapper Game taunted Suge, saying: "It's 2010 and I said f*ck Suge! Everybody in this b*tch know what Game 'bout/ Suge took the same route...Let's vote, 2010, n*gga f*ck Death Row!"

Buju Banton Pleads Not Guilty In Drug Case

Reggae artist Buju Banton has pleaded not guilty to drug charges stemming from a December 2009 arrest in Florida.

Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, was arraigned Thursday (January 7) on a charge of conspiring to buy more than five kilograms of cocaine from an undercover law enforcement officer in Sarasota in December.

According to reports, during the court appearance the Jamaican singer did not request bail, but confirmed to Judge William Turnoff that he was waiving his bail hearing in Miami to be transferred to Tampa. If he had elected to post bond, he would be held by immigration officials until his trial date.

Banton's lawyer took the time to speak with the media after the hearing and insisted that his client is innocent, and is not interested in seeking a plea deal.

"He believes that because the indictment was filed out of Tampa, that's where the case should be defended," said his attorney, Herbert E. Walker III. "He's a very spiritual person. He has a lot of faith in God. He's confident he's going to be exonerated."

If convicted Banton could be sentenced to over 20 years in prison. He is currently being held in federal custody in Tampa, Florida.

Lloyd Banks Arrested On Assault & Robbery Charges

G-Unit's Lloyd Banks was arrested over the weekend in Ontario, Canada on assault, robbery, and forced confinement charges. Banks along with three other men are accused of assaulting local promoter Chris Hines of Chris Hines/Ultimate Entertainment.

According to reports, Banks, whose real name is Christopher Lloyd, was scheduled to perform a few of his songs at Club NV in Ontario at 9pm Friday night (January 8), but showed up well after midnight and performed only one song. Banks then got into a dispute with Hines at a local hotel over the performance and appearance fees after the promoter refused to pay, claiming the rapper did not fulfill the terms of the agreement.

From there Hines alleges that Banks along with Nicolas Sloane, Shawn McGee, and Tyrell Cooper held him in his hotel room against his will, and proceeded to assault and rob him. He suffered bruises and possible head trauma from the incident and was rushed to the hospital.

Banks, Sloane, McGee and Copper made a video court appearance on Sunday afternoon (January 10), and are due to appear in court again in the early part of this week. As of Sunday the four were still in police custody.
