As we all know, Tekashi has been in prison for nearly a month with several criminal cases pending along with lawsuits.

Tekashi was locked away because of his affiliation to a local New York gang, that included racketeering. The NY rapper tried everything including giving nearly $1 million dollars along with passport to have bail.

The judge revoked the bail, as Tekashi is a target in the streets. Last year the rapper raised to stardom and made an international name for himself. It seems as though 6ix9ine past came back to haunt him. Back in 2015, Tekashi pled guilty for sexual acts with a minor.

Tekashi’s four-year probation sentence has been revoked and credit for time served has been received. In addition, 6ix9ine will serve one to three years behind bars for his guilty plea. This sentence is outside of other pending cases that will ensure Tekashi behind bars for possibly a life sentence.

Just last week, Tekashi’s released his first album “DUMMY BOY“, which debuted at #2 on the charts. Either way, the rapper has a long ways to go before he sees any freedom.

Top 3 reasons Why Jay-Z Runs The Rap Game

His consistency and hustle proves he’s better than most.

If you’re like us, when you walk into the typical neighborhood barbershop – it’s always a debate.

Some of the classic arguments that circle around is between Biggie & Tupac, Jordan & Kobe, Jadakiss & Sigel. There’s no getting around these arguments! And even with substantial points, either side is willing to change its opinion. Perhaps one of the biggest disputes is Jay-Z being the best rapper alive.

Listed below are my three reasons to support my belief that Jay-Z may possibly just be the best.

Hanging with the best

Often times we compare the greats by the timeline and events taking place.

Perhaps at the time when Jay first came on the scene, he was just another average rapper. But surely when he had his chance, Shawn Carter made it clear that the new kid on the block wasn’t taking any prisoners.

Jay got the chance to spit with the legendary Biggie, Big L, and LL Cool J. During the 90’s, Hov made a name for himself in the rap game proving that the Marcy projects native had what it took to become legendary. Starting an independent record label with Dame Dash was costly, but the necessary factor that would later lead him to stardom.

Let’s not forget that the 90’s had caliber artist like DMX, Ja-Rule, The Lox, Nas, Busta Rhymes, etc.

Consistency is everything

Surviving in the rap game for more than two singles is difficult in the current state of hip-hop.

The current build of the industry depends on up-tempo-beats, catchy hooks, and ‘jibberish’ lyrics. Most hip-hop fans will agree that the rap scene has been watered down ten times since the early 2000’s. Mr. Carter has managed to deliver us classic after classic since The Blueprint.

What started as the introduction for Kanye, is still considered a timeless classic to the masses. Many rappers haven’t been able to maintain consistency regarding dope lyrical features, and albums as a whole. Yes, Nas won battles, but Jay-Z without a doubt monetized his brand in every aspect through sales.

On top of being consistent with his music, he opened the door for rappers like Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Kanye, Young Gunz, and State Property to leave a mark in the book of Hip-Hop dynasties.

 

Jay-Z and Kanye West.

Still Relevant… Now.

Even with the commercial success that Jay-Z received throughout his career, he did not settle at just the music alone.

The music mogul has continued to reinvent himself outside the rap scene every way possible. From running his own record label (Roc-a-Fella now Roc Nation) to being the head at Def Jam. Jay started off with endorsements, that later led him to become a minority owner for the Brooklyn Nets. In addition, the New York rapper opened nightclubs (40/40 Club as one example) and even started a premium liquor line (Dusse). Jay-Z has always paired himself with relevant artist, despite his falling out with Kanye perhaps the duo were one of the strongest forces outside him and Beyonce.

NYPD Reveals a new Drone Program that has Civil Rights Groups Nervous

Nypd drones

According to CNN, the NYPD has recently announced that it will be using drones. 

Recording crime and going into hazardous areas will be the main uses for these drones. The increase in surveillance has many civil rights groups worried. Chris Dunn, Associate Legal Director of the New York Civil Liberties Union, said:

“Police cameras in the skies of New York City offer a new frontier for both public safety and abuses of power. When the NYPD provided us with an early look at a draft policy that would govern the department’s deployment of drones, the NYCLU expressed serious concerns. The NYPD did make some changes. We continue to believe the NYPD’s drone program poses a serious threat to New Yorkers’ privacy.”

You can find a video of the drones in action below. For more news, culture, and style, go to Hypefresh.
