Suge Knight "Disappointed" Over Results Of Kanye West Meeting

Kanye West and Suge Knight attended a deposition this past Friday (June 18) in New York City regarding the night of the 2005 club shooting that took place in Miami.

According to reports, the rapper did not offer any information to the former rap mogul’s legal team as they questioned him for six hours behind closed doors. But West did deny having anything to do with the security arrangements at the venue.

“He [West] basically put his hands over his head and didn’t say anything for six hours,” said Knight’s lawyer Marc Brumer to the New York Post. “He evidently doesn’t know anything about anything, despite the fact that he hosted the party.”

Knight also commented on the session and said that he was not happy with the way things went. “I figured I could sit him down, man to man, and get this resolved. I’m disappointed,” he said. “My whole thing is: I’m not here to put nobody behind bars.”

Knight is suing West and the owner’s of the Shore Club in Miami for not providing enough security at the 2005 shindig. An unidentified gunman came into the party, which was being hosted by West, and opened fire. Knight was shot during the incident and suffered a shattered femur. He is seeking to recoup $200,000 in medical expenses and is looking for more than $1 million in total damages.

The trial for the civil suit is scheduled to begin on December 6th in Miami.

Diddy Changes Clique's Name To The Supreme Team

Originally known as The Supreme Team, Diddy’s rap super crew has changed their name after finding out that another group already owns the moniker. Now the collective, which includes Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Busta Rhymes, Fabolous, Red Cafe, DJ Khaled, and Diddy, himself, goes by the name Dream Team.

Diddy announced the name change via his Twitter account and during a recent interview, rapper Rick Ross went into further detail about the adjustment.

“Shout out to Irv Gotti and their whole movement, they’ve been repping the Supreme Team for a minute,” explained Ross. We were caught up in the moment; it just fit the situation so good. We kind just did our crew thing and ran with it.”

In the end though, Ross thinks that the new name fits the group better and draws comparison to the original Dream Team, which was made up of the 1992 gold-winning U.S. Olympic basketball team.

“I felt like the Dream Team was even more appropriate,” he said. “I felt that was the greatest team ever put together. They assembled the greatest players from each market on the same team and they went and took on the world. They conquered the world! Shout out to the Dream Team and the Supreme Team.”

Lil Boosie Says He's Innocent Of First Degree Murder Charges

Lil Boosie recently commented on the new first degree murder charges that were levied against him by Baton Rouge prosecutors. While being transferred from the Louisiana State Police headquarters, where he underwent questioning, to the East Baton Rouge jail, Lil Boosie told reporters, “I’m innocent. I’m completely innocent.”

The new charges stem from the murder of a 35-year-old Louisiana man by the name of Terry Boyd. Authorities are claiming that Boosie hired a hitman to take out Boyd, who was shot while inside his house by a gunman, who was outside the home.

The Trill Entertainment rapper was also hit with drug charges after police say he attempted to smuggle narcotics into the Dixon Hills Correctional Facility, where he has been serving out a four year sentence that links back to drug charges and parole violations he accrued in late 2009.

His girlfriend, Walnita Decuir, 25, along with Joshua Wilson, a former correctional officer at Dixon Hills, and another inmate were also hit with drug charges.

The police are looking to other similar crimes that were committed over the last year with the hopes of linking them to Boosie. “We’re investigating the others in a similar fashion,” said East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore. “We are investigating the common pattern of these killings and money.”

By the time the investigation ends, Boosie could be facing five additional murder charges. If convicted of the single murder charge he is facing now he could receive the death penalty.

Bun B Teaches At Rice University

Bun B has accepted to teach a course on Hip-Hop music and Religion at private Rice University in Houston, Texas. Starting from next Spring, Bun will be dealing with attendance-matters, office hours, reading lists and other things related to a teaching job: “I gotta set up a reading list and all this dumb sh*t, well not dumb sh*t, it's [real sh*t].”

As the rapper himself states in an interview (see video below), he will not be an easy-going Professor, but a very demanding and serious one, saying: “I will be looking to see who's in class everyday, you may get priority for perfect attendance. Pay attention to me, I'ma pay attention to you.”

However, Bun B is not just busy with his new profession, but also with a new album, his third solo LP, titled Trill O.G. The album features Tupac Shakur, Drake, T-Pain, Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti, Slim Thug, Young Jeezy, Raekwon and Pimp C. It is produced by DJ Premier and DJ Khalil.
