LAPD, S.W.A.T Show Up At Chris Brown's House Due To Gun Allegations

...and CB is not having it.

Chris Brown woke up this morning to something he's none too pleased about.

Allegations swirled that the Royalty musician threatened a young woman with a gun after an argument in his Los Angeles home earlier this morning (Aug. 30).

According to TMZ, "Chris was in the house with several friends, including Ray J. They were talking and at one point Ray was getting a tattoo when some "uninvited guests" appeared inside the house and were asked to leave." The story starts to get a little muffled after that, with the woman who called 911 claiming that Brown pulled a gun on her after asking her and another woman to leave, while another person inside the house insists that Breezy was asleep the entire time.

"At some point Ray J left the house and when he got to the base of the driveway, police handcuffed him and seized his BMW," TMZ writes. "They checked his ID, uncuffed him and let him go, but kept his car as evidence."

Several news outlets are also reporting that the LAPD and the S.W.A.T are currently outside of Brown's house as part of the ongoing investigation, and are waiting for a warrant to search his home.

While heaps of drama and speculation is unfolding around him, the R&B star is posting Instagram videos voicing his disdain with the entire situation.

"So, I’m sleep half the damn night, I just wake up, all these mother f**kin' helicopter choppers is around," he says in one video posted not too long ago. "Come on, my ni**a. What the f**k else do y'all want from me, bro? Every three months y'all come up with somethin’ bro…what’s gonna be next? I’m gonna fart an elephant?”

In another video, Brown says that this is just good publicity for him (he even manages to plug his song "Grass Ain't Greener"), however, he continues to proclaim his innocence. He says that the police are "the worst gang in the world," and that they won't find any gun in his house.

Story developing.

The police haven't confirmed if there was a gun found at the singer's home.

One of the attendants at the gathering identified as Christian Bonilla took to Facebook to describe his version of what happened. Bonilla hints that the singer did argue with Baylee Curran and will provide more details on the incident with a future interview with TMZ.

Ty Dolla $ign Releases New Album Feat. Nicki Minaj, Roddy Ricch, Kanye West And More

After a three-year album hiatus, Ty Dolla $ign released his latest studio effort, Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, on Friday (Oct. 23).

The 25-track album features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi, FKA Twigs, Roddy Ricch, Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, 6lack, Young Thug, Music Soulchild, Skrillex, Quavo, Anderson Paak, Post Malone, Kanye West, and more.

Powered by previously released singles, “Ego Death,” Expensive” and By Yourself,” the new album flexes a different music muscle for the Grammy-nominated recording artists who steered clear of  making club records.

“I was intentionally trying to not make club songs [talking about] hoes and *itches and all the sh*t I used to talk about,” Ty told Vulture in a recent interview. “I was trying to, like, talk about my life, and what it is now, and really do something different with it. I got a daughter going to high school this year, and she’s paying attention, and all her friends are paying attention, so I can’t talk as crazy or do the crazy sh*t that I used to do.”

Jay Z Launches His Own Cannabis Brand

Jay Z is venturing into the world of cannabis. The  mogul officially announced the launch of his new cannabis brand, Monogram, on Friday (Oct. 23) marking his first product collaboration since becoming chief brand strategists of the Northern California-based dispensary, Caliva, last year.

“Monogram seeks to redefine what cannabis means to consumers today,” the company said in a press release. As many marijuana storefronts have implemented new rules amid the global pandemic, Monogram is also planing to launch an e-commerce sales option, “In an effort to provide a more tailored customer experience.”

Caliva and Hov opened their first Southern California storefront last year. Besides providing quality products, Hov aims to use his position at Caliva to help the formerly incarcerated (many of whom are not reaping the benefits of marijuana legalization) through advocacy, job training, and employee and workforce development.

According to the company website, Monogram uses “expert growers” to ensure that each marijuana flowers receives the “respect it deserves” in every stage of the growth process. Additionally, Monogram flowers are grown in small batches so that every plant gets “personalized attention.”
