Saigon On Returning To 'Entourage', Tru-Life & Making Hip-Hop Gospel [Pg. 3]

How do you think jail might've affected Wayne?

That kid is an anomaly, man. He's a super-talent, so I think he's gonna adjust very well. The only thing I know from experience in jail is it changes your outlook on life, and I'm just hoping he don't come out with a bunch of songs about "I'm a changed man," because we don't wanna hear that shit. We want you to go back to being the rapper eater. [Laughs

He was actually locked up with another rapper, your friend Tru-Life. When’s the last time you spoke with Tru?

I haven't spoke to Tru in a few weeks. I'm waiting on his call now, but the last time we spoke, his case was looking good. Right now, he's in good spirits, he just misses his kids a lot. Other than that, he's strong. If everything works out for him, he should be home any day now.

Do you guys trade verses over the phone?

Oh, naw. I haven't heard none of his new stuff yet. [Laughs] It's funny because when I was locked up, I used to call him and we'd rap on the phone for hours. So the next time I catch him, he's definitely gon' have to spit something.

True. As for yourself, do you think you’d ever return to Entourage?

They called me and asked if I would be interested in coming back. I don't know what that could turn into, but I was like, 'Hell yeah, I'd be interested in coming back.' I think Eminem should come back as a reoccurring role. He'd be dope, ‘cause as great of an artist Eminem is, he still has this mystique about him. So, I'd like to see his humorous side in his everyday personality. This is a guy who dressed up with wigs and all that!

Would you try some unexpected acting roles?

Yeah, man. I just don't want it to be a hood role every single time. I wanna play a doctor or something, you know. See if I can pull that off. My dream role is to be a superhero like Hancock. On the EP, I just did a Mario Bros. song over, and I just shot a video like the old school Mario Bros. game. It's called "Get Busy." I do a little acting in the video. I'm talking about Mario in the song, but Mario is like a real person, and his girl gets kidnapped and he comes to get me to help to get his girl back.

Looking forward to that. How do you want the Greatest Story Never Told to change rap?

I want it to be something where somebody could play it for they sons, they mother, they grandmother, you know. I don't what it to be limited to hip-hop heads; that's why I got gospel-sounding songs. I got something for everybody. I just want people to know there's something for everybody on that record. You cannot put it in a box.

Beyonce Trolls Fans By Releasing Tongue-In-Cheek 'Formation' Tour Merch

While Beyonce was able to whet the Beyhive’s insatiable appetites with the Homecoming documentary chronicling her highly-favored Coachella performance, it looks like they’re still hungry for more.

It’s been nearly three full years since Bey embarked on the Formation World Tour, and fans have demanded concert footage of the show for virtually the entirety of those three years, to no avail.On the merch section of her website, new apparel advertising the Formation World Tour is available for purchase, and it’s delightfully petty.

Shirts adorned with “Where Is The FWT DVD?” is written all over the shirt, much to the chagrin of those who are eager to know the answer to that question. They are sold in white, gray, pink and light green, and go for $40 a pop.

Fear not, fans. There could be an answer about the footage's whereabouts sooner rather than later. As we reported, Bey signed a $60 million deal with Netflix, which will reportedly distribute three projects with the superstar. Two of those projects are carefully under wraps, but with the anniversary of the Formation World Tour’s start around the corner (April 27), we’d recommend you to stay on your toes.

Lemonade, the album accompanying the FWT, will be released to streaming services outside of Tidal on April 23, the third-anniversary of the album’s release.

Kylie Jenner Teases New Travis Scott Song In Makeup Promo

Kylie Jenner got a little help from her boyfriend Travis Scott in order to promote Kylie Cosmetics’ latest KYBROWS eyebrow pencil. In an ad promoting the upcoming product, Jenner utilizes the “SICKO MODE” musician’s reportedly-unreleased song as background music. In the trippy track, Scott says “she fill my mind up with ideas, I’m the highest in the room, hope I make it out of here…” While we’re not sure if new music is certainly on the way from the Grammy-nominated rapper, Jenner’s KYBROWS drops next week (April 29). Scott’s most recent project, ASTROWORLD, was released in 2018, and he continues to enjoy the fruits of his labor. His February ASTROWORLD tour stops at Los Angeles’ The Forum added him to the list of artists who have sold out the venue more than once in a 12-month span.

A NYPD Cop Falsely Arrested A Black Man Lied On The Paperwork, But Still Has His Job

A New York police officer has faced no punishment for falsely arresting a black man and lying on his police report about what a witness statement.

In June 2016, officer Xavier Gonzalez arrested investment adviser Darryl Williams at the 125th Street and Lexington Avenue subway station. Gonzalez alleged Williams, 58 at the time, pickpocketed straphangers on a 4 train.

Gonzalez was undercover at the time and wrote in his report that Anthony Osei, who was also on a northbound 4 train, said Williams stole his phone. However, Osei, a paint shop clerk, told the New York Daily News Gonzalez lied.

When Willaims sued the city and the NYPD over the arrest, Osei, swore in an affidavit, reviewed by The Daily News, he didn't tell officers Williams stole his phone.

“A cop came up to me and said, ‘Did he take your phone?' I said, ‘No, I have my phones and wallet.’ Two weeks later, I get a call from the prosecutor. I told them the same thing."

In court, Osei testified on Williams' behalf stating "I defended him (Williams) because it was the right thing to do.”

Williams worked at the Sanitation Department for nearly two decades when he was arrested. He had private clients and his financial license was suspended for two months. He spent $1,500.

There's a process called “arrest overtime” in which an arrest made toward the end of a cop's shift helps bolster his or her overtime pay. It's a beloved practice that drives up a cop's pension.

“I have no trust in cops anymore,” said Williams, 60, now retired. “He’s putting perfectly innocent people in handcuffs. People who don’t have the resources I have, they could go to jail for something they didn’t do."
