Yung Berg Addresses Robbery Rumors, Reality TV Show In The Works (Pg. 3)

Why do you think the media is constantly throwing dirt on your name?

I know I'm responsible for creating some of that negative energy toward myself, and take responsibility for all my own actions. I know I’ve done some things in my past that may have people looking at me crazy but at the same time I can’t control what a media outlet is going to write about me. I can’t worry about that.

The most recent has been UK rapper Rowdy-T claiming that he robbed you and took your Batman charm. He even posted pictures with it online. Can you at least clear that up?

Nothing has been taken from me that has any real value to me. Unless they take my vocal chords, my ability to make a beat, or hum a melody than I feel like I haven’t lost anything. Anything that’s materialistic I can get back.

Was that your jewelry that Rowdy posted pictures of?

I don’t even want to talk about that because this shall pass, too. My music is what is going to stick around, and I don’t want anything to take the focus off that. As far as anything else, I’m just not going to talk about it because people are going to believe whatever they want. I don’t get into the WWF side of things. I’m trying to be like Smokey Robinson with a catalog of hit records. I can’t be worried about what goes on Internet sites. That doesn’t generate any money for me.

Got it. So you’re at least okay? Not injured or harmed in any way?

I’m beautiful, man. I’m like a newborn baby. There’s nothing wrong with me or anything. The only person I have beef with is the Devil.

What else can we expect from you?

I’m working on a new reality TV show. I feel like there are a lot of misconceptions about the guy that I really am. You’ve heard me speak a lot of different ways, but I’ve changed and grown. I came in the game when I was 21 years old, and I wasn’t cookie-cutter ready. I want people to understand my mistakes. Nothing is going to break me now. I’m still at my condo making hit records with five, six different girls coming to see me everyday. I can’t be a guy that’s upset over anything.

Waka Flocka Flame Say He’s Dedicating His Life To Suicide Prevention And Mental Health Awareness

With the month of May being Mental Health Awareness Month, Waka Flocka Flame shared a major announcement with fans. The rapper and reality star is dedicating his life to suicide prevention and mental health awareness, he shared on Monday (May 25).

“I’m officially dedicating my life to suicide prevention and mental illness! Ya’ll not alone Waka Flocka Flame is with ya’ll now,” he tweeted.

Waka’s younger brother, Coades “Kayo Redd” Scott, died by suicide in 2013. In a follow-up tweet, Waka revealed that he’s slowly learning to accept his brother’s passing.

“You have no idea how it feel[s] to wanna [take] your own life man…my little brother took his own life man…and I deal with this fact every birthday because his birthday [is] the day after mines [sic] June 1st. This year I’m officially accepting the fact that he’s in a better place.”

The 33-year-old recording artist, whose other brother was killed in 2000, opened up about losing his younger brother in a 2017 episode of The Therapist, where he revealed that Kao tried to get in contact with him prior to committing suicide.

“Before my little brother died, I ain’t pick up the phone and I seen him call. I was like, ‘f**k lemme call Kayo back, as soon as this s**t lover.’ And I called him back, no answer.”

“What if I would’ve picked that call up? What the f**k is my little brother going through that made my little brother kill himself?”

2 Chainz’s Atlanta Restaurant Shut Down Over Social Distancing Violations

Less than a month after reopening, 2 Chainz’s Escobar Restaurant & Tapas has been temporarily shut down for violating the state’s social distancing guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Department of Public Health and Safety cited the eatery on Sunday (May 24), after receiving complaints about the number of customers inside the restaurant and bar. Georgia guidelines limits occupancy to 10 patrons per 300 square feet.

“When I entered the establishment, the entire facility was full of patrons, shoulder to shoulder, and was unable to enter safely,” a DPS officer wrote in an incident reports according to Atlanta’s WSB-TV. The DPS officer also observed the “same violations” that caused DPS to issue an initial warning to the facility.

The manager on duty had security clear out the room but State Police ordered Escobar to close on Monday (May 25) after the violations were not fixed. Various videos posted to Escobar’s Instagram Story prove that the venue was indeed packed with customers.

In April, Georgia’s governor announced that restaurants, hair salons, and other businesses could reopen for in-person service despite the state's rising cases of COVID-19. Escobar, which had been serving takeout orders only, faced backlash after revealing plans to reopen for dine-in service following the governor’s announcement. The restaurant decided to remain closed for a little while longer and fed several of Atlanta’s homeless before fully reopening in early May.

Doja Cat Speaks Out After Being Accused Of Joining White Supremacist Chat Rooms

After trending online for the entire Memorial Day Weekend, Doja Cat publicly addressed allegations of racism and engaging in white supremacist chat rooms on Tiny Chat.

On Sunday (May 24), the “Say So” rapper posted a lengthy Instagram statement in response to numerous tweets exposing her alleged online activity, including saying “n**ger” in a predominately white video chat room and recording a song named after a racial slur.

“I’ve used public chat rooms to socialize since I was a child. I shouldn’t have been on some of those chat room sites, but I personally have never been involved in any racist conversations,” Doja explained in the statement. “I’m sorry to everyone that I offended.”

“I’m a black woman,” she added. “Half of my family is black from South Africa and I’m very prude of where I came from.”
