Local Brooklyn Rapper Saves Teenage Girl From Alleged Child Predator

One creep picked the wrong day to mess with innocent New Yorkers. 

Sexual assault is real in New York City -- unfortunately. Ladies, in case you were asking yourself where are the men who will stand up for women, well look no further than local Brooklyn rapper, Moise Morancy. A 21-year old aspiring rapper/actor who, for today, is a hero out here in these streets.

In a viral video, Morancy was filmed restraining a middle-aged looking man who allegedly touched a teenage girl without her consent. He held him down for about 20 mins after before authorities arrived.

He warned all sexual predators in the video, “Muthafuc*as that touch a girl without her permission, this is what imma do to you,” as he held him by the collar. “Don’t you ever do that s–t again, you hear me? He was touching a little girl, and then I defended her.”

According to the NY Daily News, Morancy was returning home from putting the finishing touches on his debut mixtape, “Chronicles of A Ghetto Rose” when he witnessed the victim “careess her leg” without her consent.

“I’m sitting at the back of the bus when this drunk guy gets on, saying all types of sexual s--t to this little girl sitting next to me,” Morancy wrote on his Facebook page. “At first he started caressing her hand and I saw how uncomfortable it made her...so she let go and put her hands in her pocket. He then proceeded to forcibly do it again.”

After a passenger called 911, NYPD officers then got on the bus and arrested the alleged perp, Pablo Levano, and then detained Morancy. In a quote given to the NY Daily News, Morancy said that he was very confused when the officers put handcuffs on him. “They started to detain me, and I was confused. I felt criminalized,” said Morancy.

However, things took a brighter turn after an NYPD sergeant, a black man, ordered his released. “He was black, and he told me I was a hero, which I was surprised to hear,” Morancy said. “It gave me a different perspective on the NYPD because I have had prior run-ins with the police because I have been racially profiled.”

Levano is currently being held at Rikers Island and has been charged with forcible touching, child endangerment and harassment. He has a $2,000 bond or $1,000 cash bond.

As for Morancy, we hope that his bars is as dope as his heart.

Kanye West To Debut ‘Nebuchadnezzar’ Opera At Hollywood Bowl

Kanye West will debut his new opera, Nebuchadnezzar, at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles Sunday (Nov. 24). The opera acts as an expression of the 42-year-old rapper’s “commitment to both his faith and ever-expanding musical palette,” according to West's record label, Def Jam.

Directed by Vanessa Beecroft, Nebuchadnezzar will feature Ye’s Sunday Service Collective, along with singer Peter Collins, and the group Infinity Song.

The production meshes elements of gospel, opera and fine art into an “innovative performance structure,” and is an original adaptation of the biblical story of the Babylonian King from the Book of Daniel. The story, set in 6th century B.C., recounts Nebuchadnezzar’s transition from “wicked, impure, self-declared ruler to a true believer who finds salvation in his faith.”

Nebuchadnezzar is the first large-scale production from West this year, outside of his Sunday Service performances. Last week, the father of four traveled to Houston where he made a guest appearance at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church.

West and the Sunday Service choir also popped up at a Texas jail for an impromptu performance that was attended by around 200 inmates.

Tickets for Nebuchadnezzar can be purchased on Ticketmaster.com.

Slick Woods Reveals Skin Cancer Diagnosis

Slick Woods is battling skin cancer. The 23-year-old model revealed that she will undergo chemotherapy treatment in an Instagram post on Tuesday (Nov. 19).

Woods later confirmed to The Shade Room  that she has stage 3 melanoma, and its reportedly spreading. Woods is “fighting for her life,” according to the website.

Stage three melanoma is an advanced form of the skin cancer that can spread from the skin cells to the lymph nodes. As reported by Self.com, a 2016 medical study found that black people are less likely to contract skin cancer, but more likely to be diagnosed in later stages.

Despite the cancer diagnosis, Woods appears to be keeping her spirits up. She shared another message on Instagram this week captioned, “Stop treating me like a victim.”

The Los Angeles native, whose birth name is Simone Thompson, has worked with Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Yeezy and more. She is best known for appearing in numerous fashion campaigns for Rihanna’s ever-expanding Fenty empire, even while pregnant. Woods went into labor shortly after walking in Rihanna's Savage x Fenty fashion show last year.

She welcomed her son, Saphir, in September 2018.

Harris also pointed posted to her Instagram Story, “I was in love with you the moment I first saw you,” TMZ reports.

The newborn is the first child for Harris and the second for Brown, who has a 5-year-old daughter, Royalty. Although Breezy has never directly addressed rumors about Harris being pregnant he may have dropped at least one clue. In May, Brown commented “BM BAD” on Harris’ Instagram account leading fans to believe that he was referring to her as his baby’s mother.

Aside from reportedly welcoming a new bundle of joy, the Virginia native’s “No Guidance” collaboration with Drake received a Grammy nod on Wednesday. Brown is also up for two  trophies at the 2019 American Music Awards, which air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, on Nov. 24.
