V Exclusive: Yung Berg [Pg 2.]

Okay I guess we believe you [laughs], plus you do shout out Wiz and Taylor Gang in the song…
And the crazy thing is Wiz has been my peoples for at least four years now. I kind of was like "Yo should I ask?" and I know how Wiz is and I did that song so long ago and it's just coincidence that they had a situation but I know Wiz is a real easy going person and he's not sweating it and I'm not sweating it either.

Your tracklisting also show’s a record called “After The Club” with Ray J, is that in the “Sexy Can I” vein?
It's really not like anything you heard Ray-J on before –the beat is so 2011, so in the future. The beat is so out of here and it's a club record.

Oh boy, does that mean it's fist pump friendly?
[Laughs] It's like a happy medium between Urban and Euro-Pop. Me and Ray went in there and worganically did the record. It happened real fast and I left LA, because we did it around All-Star weekend time, and I came back to Miami and I put the final touches on it.

Do you think this record can be as big as you guys’ first collab?
Nah, this is just one of those records that I would want to put out there to test the waters. I actually have a record called "Sexy Can I Pt. 2" that's on my album.

So it's literally titled "Sexy Can I Part 2"?
Sure is.

When can we expect to hear that?
Fall. We're shooting a video in the summertime. The record features me, Ray-J and Sean Kingston. So it's a real big movie. It's literally "Sexy Can I pt 2." It's produced by Detail –the same producer who produced "Sexy Can I." It's me and Ray going back and forth all over again. It's the same type of tempo, same type of record, same type of chant just in a 2011 form.

Okay so we gotta ask, are you still comfortable rocking flashy jewelry?
On some real shit back in the day when I was buying those big ass chains and shit, I felt like that was a part of me being Yung Berg. But me growing up and being Christian, being Mr. Ward, and who I really I am, I toned down. I'm not going to be with the big gaudy chains because people would look and they would say "Well, this nigga still ain't learn his lesson." I learned my lesson. I'm going to have jewelry but it's going to be more upscale and common. It's not going to be catching just the nigga eye.

It also seems like face tatts catch that type of. You actually have a few, do you think you'd get some more?

NYPD Cop Believed To Have Been Killed In 1999 Is Actually Still Alive

It was believed that NYPD cop Vincent Ling died as a result of gunshot wounds back in 1999. However, on Monday (Mar. 19), it was discovered that he's alive and well, after cops tracked down his supposed killer.

Per the New York Daily News, Lester Pearson, Ling's killer, was arrested at his home in Jacksonville, Fla. A wanted man in several states, authorities reported that Ling’s killer was in custody.

After NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill tweeted that they caught Ling's killer in Florida, they later had to take back their report, as they discovered Ling didn't die as a result of his injuries. They said that a "misread" of the attempted murder warrant "led to confusion."

"Ling was off duty when he was shot. Because he worked undercover, his name was not released at the time of the incident," the Daily News writes. "News reports of the time say he spent at least a month in the hospital, and was partly paralyzed by a bullet lodged in his spine."

Reports say that Ling is now 47 years old, and records indicate that he lives in The Bronx. He could not be reached for comment, and the NYPD did not answer questions regarding how they discovered he was alive.

"Pearson had been living in Jacksonville under the name Michael Davis with his girlfriend and several children. He performed as a rapper named Monsta Kodi and has more than 100,000 Instagram followers," the Daily News says of Ling's alleged killer. They lived in the same neighborhood and had beef; Pearson once dated Ling's sister.

Jordyn Woods Reportedly “Flooded” With Business Deals

Jordyn Woods' start to 2019 was relatively rough but things are starting to smooth out for the 21-year-old, according to The Blast. The media outlet reports that following her cheating scandal with NBA player Tristan Thompson and her appearance on the Facebook show, Red Table Talk, Woods received numerous deals from overseas businesses.

The Blast revealed that sources involved with the deals disclosed that Woods along with her "momager," Elizabeth Woods will leave for London at the end of the month to sign "several new deals." Many of the opportunities being offered to the California native revolve around the beauty industry, including a new line for her eyelash brand.

Although Woods' mother may be her manager, she has marketing genius Sheeraz Hasan to thank for her new, lucrative deals. Hasan, who has coincidentally worked with Kim Kardashian, has handled deals between Hollywood and the Middle East for Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Logan Paul just to name a few. He is the brain behind Woods' upcoming trip to London, and a later trip to Dubai which she reportedly teased on her Instagram Story with a video showcasing her mother and Hasan.

Kyle Massey Denies Sexual Misconduct Allegations: Do Not 'Jump To Conclusions'

Former Disney Channel star Kyle Massey came under fire over the weekend after being accused of sending sexually explicit material to a teenage girl. The 27-year-old is vehemently denying the allegations in a statement.

"No child should ever be exposed to sexually explicit materials and I unequivocally and categorically deny any alleged misconduct," said Massey through his lawyer Lee Hutton in a statement to TMZ. He also urged the public "not to jump to conclusions based on the allegations alone but reserve judgment until the whole story comes to light, proving these allegations baseless.”

The gossip site broke the story that the former That's So Raven actor was being sued by the family of the teenager for $1.5 million. The suit alleges that Massey send a photo of his erect penis to the girl via Snapchat in Dec. 2018.

Court documents claim that the teenager is an aspiring actress who has known Massey since she was four years old. He remained close with the family and acted as a "father figure" of sorts to the girl. She reached out to him in November 2018 about auditioning for the spinoff of his show, Cory In The House.
