Juvenile Reportedly Involved In Physical Altercation At A South Carolina Waffle House

A Waffle House in South Carolina was flipped upside down last weekend when the famed rapper reportedly engaged in a fight with an unidentified customer.

A Waffle House in South Carolina was flipped upside down last weekend. According to TMZ, famed rapper Juvenile reportedly engaged in a physical altercation with a customer (May 13).

The fight stemmed from a comment the unidentified person said as the New Orleans native entered the restaurant. "Juvenile here, here come all the hoes now," the patron allegedly uttered. Juvenile was with his wife during that time, and proceeded to confront the customer on his out of line statement.

Surveillance cameras showed the "Slow Motion" rapper exiting the Waffle House before things went to another level, but he re-entered and landed a punch on the unknown customer. The site states a police report wasn't filed.

Beyonce Speaks On Experimenting With A New Genre For ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ Album

Beyonce is gearing up to share a new project with fans, serving as her second output of musical content since the Emmy-nominated Homecoming documentary premiered on Netflix in April. In an interview with Good Morning America, the award-winning artist shared her vision behind The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack, which she executive produced.

“We’ve kind of created our own genre and I feel like the soundtrack is the first soundtrack where it becomes visual in your mind. The soundscape is more than just the music because each song tells the story of the film.” The compilation will arrive in tandem with the movie’s release on Friday (July 19).

On Tuesday (July 16), the tracklist was made public, featuring the vocals of Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Mr. Eazi, Jessie Reyez, Tiwa Savage, and Beyonce’s first born, Blue Ivy Carter who stars in the music video for “Spirit.”

Beyonce's statement on making the songs feel tangible rings true for Donald Glover, who voices the persona of adult Simba. The Grammy Award-winning artist said one resounding song in particular put into perspective his reality of being a father and seeing his own dad within himself. “I think the ‘Circle of Life’ as a child you hear that and you’re like it’s a good song and you understand it,” he said. “But I think as a father, I was holding my son the other day and walked past the mirror and I had my glasses on and I was like, ‘I look just like my dad.’”

For director Jon Favreau, experiencing the masses' reaction to just the film's trailer was an eye-opening experience. “You know you’re working in these dark rooms and it’s out there in the world. Millions of people have access to this and you feel people come together through that and it’s the best feeling in the world,” he said.

The Lion King live-action remake plans to dominate the weekend box office beginning July 19.

Suspect Arrested For Death Of Activist Sadie Roberts-Joseph

On Tuesday (July 16), Baton Rouge law enforcement arrested a man in connection to activist Sadie Roberts-Joseph’s death. NPR reports Ronn Jermaine Bell is suspected of murdering the 75-year-old and is believed to be a tenant in a building owned by Roberts-Joseph. Bell was overdue on $1,200 in rent. The Advocate also reports on the same day of her death (July 12), Roberts-Joseph made plans to reach out to Bell to discuss the outstanding rent.

Bell’s history within the criminal justice system dates back to 2006 when he was arrested for sexually battery of a minor. The registered sex offender, 38, was sentenced to seven years in prison. He was arrested again after his release for failure to pay a court fee.

Roberts-Joseph’s body was found in the trunk of her car and her death was initially ruled as a homicide. Authorities deemed the beloved patron passed from traumatic asphyxia, partly the result of suffocation. During the investigation, police officials discovered Bell’s DNA on Roberts-Joseph’s body and he was seen near the vehicle on video surveillance footage.

In 2001, Roberts-Jospeh established the Odell S. Williams Now and Then African-American Museum. She also founded the Community Against Drugs and Violence outlet and was deemed a “cultural legend” by the NAACP’s Baton Rouge branch. Angela Machen, Roberts-Joseph's daughter, said she hopes her mother's vision for the community and beyond continues to persevere. "All my mother ever wanted was for this community to come together," she said. "It's ironic that that happened in death. What she wanted to happen in life came to fruition in death. However, we will see to it that her legacy continues."

Bell now faces a first-degree murder charge.

Da Brat Defends Jermaine Dupri’s “Genius” After Comments About Female Rappers

Jermaine Dupri doesn't make a move without strategy, according to Da Brat who defended the So So Def founder’s recent comments about female rappers.

Speaking to a paparazzi at LAX airport Tuesday (July 17), Brat called Dupri a "genius" and detailed how his critique of female rappers ended up being a “good thing” because it helped start a conversation surrounding the lyrical diversity among women in rap.

“Everything Jermaine Dupri does, he does strategically,” she said. “You should be thankful that the conversation is even started now, because now the focus in on us [female rappers]. New [rappers], seasoned [rappers], legends…everybody’s commenting.”

Brat also pointed out that Dupri’s remark calling today's mainstream rapper’s “strippers” was in response to the interviewer asking for his thoughts on Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and Megan Thee Stallion.

“I love Jermaine Dupri, he’s very smart at what he does and there’s always a method to his madness,” Brat added before noting that Dupri's words were “absolutely taken out of context.”

Reactions to Dupri's comments were mixed. Several rappers refuted his assessment and others agreeing with him, but thanks to all of the negative and positive attention, Dupri announced that he will be hosting a So So Def Female Cypher.

After all the calls,DMs, angry tweets and other messages saying “I am a major gatekeeper in the hip hop world,why don’t I invest in a female who is out here hustling and making a name for herself?” I decided to create the #SoSoDefFemalecypher, details coming soon pic.twitter.com/Nyxl5KpPXZ
