Snoop To Face Off Against Terrell Owens In 'Snoop Bowl'

Rapper Snoop Dogg has announced details for his eighth annual "Snoop Bowl," which will take place in Miami, Florida this year.

Snoop Dogg will coach his team, The Snoop Dogg All-Stars, who will face off against a local team led by Buffalo Bills' wide receiver Terrell Owens and Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter.

The two teams will face off at Miami's Traz Powell Stadium, where Owens and Porter hope to put a dent in Snoop's All-Stars' nearly unblemished record.

"I am happy that we've been doing this event for eight years - the kids love it and I do too," Snoop Dogg told AllHipHop.com. "The future NFL stars play in this game annually and its fun to watch the kids imitate there favorite NFL stars. The Snoop Bowl is as big as the Super Bowl to every kid playing organized football in the USA because they aspire to play against my team or to be coached by Coach Snoop 'The Great.' I love being me wouldn't you like to be an All Star too?"

The event is being sponsored by Title Sports Drink and Snoop Dogg's Snoop Youth Football League, which has garnered praise from the Wall Street Journal to the LA Times and numerous other outlets.

"We're very proud to be involved in such a great event," Kevin Sepe, President of Title Sports Drink added. "It allows us to both sponsor youth football at its finest and hydrate some of our future stars."

In addition to raising over $100,000 since its inception, the Snoop Bowl and the SYFL are noted for the quality of players the league has produced.

This year, nine players on Los Angeles' undefeated Crenshaw High School football team rise through the ranks of the league.

"I also want to thank Title Sports Drink for stepping up to participate in something that is not only good for the community but a ton of fun, ya dig?" Snoop added.

Snoop Dogg's 8th Annual Snoop Bowl kicks off February 6th at 1:30pm at Traz Powell Stadium in Miami.

Fans can purchase tickets online at www.ticketalternative.com or at the gate. Tickets are $10 for children 12 and under and $20 for ages 13 and up.

Blueface Reportedly Facing Prison Time For Unregistered Handgun Possession

According to The Blast, rapper Blueface could face jail time for unregistered handgun possession.

A few weeks ago, the "Thotiana" MC was arrested for possession of a fully-loaded handgun in Los Angeles. The charge is a felony, and carries a maximum of three years behind bars. Coupled with an existing firearm charge, this spells trouble for the California native.

"Back in November, Blueface was busted in Santa Clarita, CA for his alleged involvement in a robbery and vehicle-to-vehicle gunfight," writes The Blast. "He was in a car that crashed into the center divider on the freeway, and he was arrested on a $50,000 bond for assault with a deadly weapon." The rapper (born Jonathan Porter) is due back in court next week.

Despite issues within his personal life, the 22-year-old's professional life continues to thrive. His hit song "Thotiana" currently sits at the No. 20 slot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Rappers such as YG, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have put their respective spins on the track, and Young M.A. reportedly teased her own version of the song in a now-deleted clip posted to her Instagram.

Stockton Launches Basic Income Program Gifting Residents With $500 A Month

Stockton, California has launched its basic income plan gifting dozens of residents with $500 a month, the Huffington Post reports.

Last year, Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs responded to criticism over the program which was designed to help close the poverty gap as residents struggle to stay afloat amid California's skyrocketing rent prices and increase in homelessness.

The basic income plan -- the first of its kind to be launched by a U.S. city -- was announced by Tubbs and the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration (SEED) in 2017. Under the program, 130 residents will receive a monthly stipend via prepaid debit cards for the next 18 months.

Exciting! Congrats to the team, the city, and to the recipients. We’ve learned so much getting to this point and I am looking forward to learning more. Stockton lead the way @stocktondemo #ReinventStockton https://t.co/j2OPkA4zG8

Stockton's median household income is just under $50,000 a year. Residents are chosen through an “algorithm” to make sure that the selection is representative of the community’s diversity.

The money is funded by a grant from the Economic Security Project, in addition to other funds raised, Tubbs said.

“There’s no restriction on how people can use the money,” he pointed out. “If people use it for drugs and alcohol that’s there prerogative. [But] if I didn’t believe in the capacity of the folks who elected me to make good decisions, I probably shouldn’t be mayor.”
