Bobby Shmurda’s Uncle Blasts Industry's Lack Of Support: ‘They’re Not Trying To Help Him’

Yesterday, (Jan 26) Bobby Shmurda and Migos gave their fans a sneak-peek of their Shmigo Gang mixtape. Despite his legal troubles the Brooklyn rapper hasn’t refrained from putting out new music.

But, his legal battles are far from over, as he remains behind bars. There have recently been a slew of reports stating that the Bobby Shmurda’s uncle and manager Debo Wilson, tried to steal $20,000 from him. Reports are also swirling that Wilson is filing a million-dollar lawsuit against his nephew for legal charges due to allegedly cancelled concert dates.

In a recent interview with Vlad TV, Wilson addressed the rumors behind these allegations. And he also took the chance to state that Bobby’s industry partners and fellow artists have abandoned him since his incarceration in December.

“We always was there for him. We put him in the right direction,” said Wilson. “When we left him, his shit’s been going downhill. He got all the dickkriding niggas in the industry that runs around behind him. They’re not trying to help him. All they’re trying to do is live off his fame. Now he’s locked up. Where all those artists at? Where they at?”

Wilson also claimed that other artist were giving his nephew drugs and pointing him in the wrong direction. He blamed all the accusations made against him for stealing money from Bobby on media reports. He pointed a finger at DJ Funkmaster Flex in particular.

“When I got motherfuckers like Funk Flex saying I’m shady, now I gotta say something,” Wilson declared. “Pussy nigga, you don’t know me, so don’t be calling me shady. Simple as that.”

Wilson claims he has tried to help get Bobby out of jail, but the rapper has not responded to his efforts. Listen to Debo Wilson’s full interview above.

Lil Wayne's 1999 Rap Notebook Is On Sale For $250K

If you have $250,000 laying around and fancy yourself a Lil Wayne fan then you can own his rap notebook from 1999.

Weezy was about 17 years old and part of the beloved rap group the Hot Boys when he penned his lyrics for songs "We On Fire" and "I Feel."

The owner of the notebook told TMZ he found it inside a car once owned by Cash Money. As a dealership employee, he rummaged through the backseat and located the prized possession.

Photos of the notebook show water damage, which the owner said was nearly destroyed during Hurricane Katrina.

The notebook was stored in a box in his garage and when the Category 5 storm hit, he evacuated. When he returned much of his belongings were destroyed except for the book. Moments In Time will reportedly handle the sale of the rare find.

Moments In Time has sold several hip-hop artifacts. In 2017, the company sold three pages in which the beloved rapper penned the lyrics to his classic "Dear Mama." Each page priced at $25,000. The company also sold the vehicles Biggie and Pac were killed in.

Weird flex, but okay.

LeBron James Has A Message For Los Angeles Lakers Fans

While the Los Angeles Lakers had less than an exhilarating season, its newest addition, LeBron James, isn't going to let the team's losing record deter him from championship pursuits. In an Instagram post, the 6'8" power forward reassured purple and gold fans that the franchise will be better and stronger next season.

"Believe me!" James began. "Promise #LakerNation the spell won't last much longer! I swear. The marathon continues!" The Lakers' record currently stands at 32 wins and 41 losses. In late February, after the team succumbed to a 110-105 defeat to the Memphis Grizzlies, James told reporters that the losing streak is something he can't adjust to.

"The last few years, everyone's so accustomed to the losses that I'm just not accustomed to. I'm not accustomed to it," he said, per USA Today. "I would never get comfortable with losing." Ahead of the 2018-19 season, James joined the team after leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time.

The 34-year-old pro-athlete has seen 13 playoffs since his tenure in the league. His postseason appearances have also amassed three NBA championship titles.
