Bobby Shmurda Affiliate Curses Out Judge Before Receiving 117.5 To 130 Years Sentence

Twenty-three-year-old Santino Boderick was charged with 20 felonies, yet turned down a plea deal that would've required him to serve 15 years in prison.

Bobby Shmurda's co-defendant in a Brooklyn gang conspiracy case was removed from a Manhattan courtroom on Thursday (Jan. 19) for telling a judge "suck my d**k" before receiving his sentence of over a century behind bars.

Santino Boderick hurled a plethora of expletives at Justice Abraham Clott including "F**k you!" Clott, however, remained calm and had the 23-year-old removed from the courtroom where he eventually read Boderick's 117.5 to 130-year sentence.

Boderick was convicted of a host of charges including 20 felonies stemming from several gang-related shootings, along with conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder and possession of a weapon. According to Page Six, Boderick turned down a plea deal in September 2016, which would have required him to serve a total of 15 years in prison.

However, "Hot N***a" artist Bobby Shmurda took a plea deal in December 2016 and was sentenced to seven years. This isn't the first time one of Shmurda's affiliates received a lengthy sentence. In May 2016, 24-year-old Rashid Derissant, former member of GS29, was given 98 years behind bars for attempted murder, murder and assault.

Black Women's Equal Pay Day Addresses Race And Gender Biases In The Work Place

As of 2017, black women who work full-time yearly will make 61 cents for every dollar earned by white men, and that gap will total to $23,653 less for the full year, as reported by The Center for American Progress. 

August 22 is Black Women's Equal Pay Day, and the conversation generates a buzz of the huge pay gap among black women and their fellow counterparts. According to the American Civil Liberties Union, "Black women would need to work more than 60 years to earn what a white man earns in 40 years."

#BlackWomensEqualPay has taken Twitter by storm with personal testimonies, stories, and insight on the discrimination black women face in the workplace. CNBC reports that (April 2) was a historic day as it marked that the average women had earned the same pay as men from the previous year.

"The race and gender pay gap facing Black women in this country is not new and not only continues to erode black women's economic standing, but also the hampers the economic stability of their families and our greater economy," said Jocelyn Frye, a senior fellow with CAP's Women's Initiative.

United States of Women report statistics circling around the black women pay gap including labor force, the LGBTQ community, and more.

1. In 2017, Black women’s labor force participation rate was 60.3%, compared with roughly 56% for white women, Asian American women & Latinx women.

But this higher labor force participation rate has not translated into higher earnings...#BlackWomensEqualPay#BlackWomenCantWait

3. Black women earn an estimated $946,120 less than white, non-Hispanic men over the course of a 40-year career. #BlackWomensEqualPay #BlackWomenCantWait#BlackWomensEqualPayDay

6. 64% of Black mothers are the primary or sole breadwinners for their family. #BlackWomensEqualPay#BlackWomensEqualPayDay #BlackWomenCantWait

Jermaine Dupri Says Jay-Z Didn't Advise Him To Turn Down NFL Deal

After Bryan-Michael Cox and DJ Funkmaster Flex made separate claims that Jay-Z advised Jermaine Dupri to turn down a deal with the NFL, the record producer, songwriter, and rapper sat down with Big Tigger on Atlanta's V103 Wednesday (Aug. 21) to deny the claims.

Dupri said his deal with the league was to "curate a series of free shows held at Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park" and the event would happen before the Super Bowl. In 2018, the rapper took to his Instagram with the official post.

A post shared by Jermaine Dupri (@jermainedupri) on Oct 26, 2018 at 8:20am PDT

"He and I never had a conversation where he told me 'don't do what you're doing," the So So Def producer said. "What our conversation was, 'You know what side I'm on, I understand what you're doing.' That's what the conversation was."

Here's a quick timeline of the alleged rumors:

Cox joined a Twitter live stream with LoolaTV on Wednesday (Aug. 14) to make the claim that Jay-Z advised Dupri to turn down an NFL partnership. "We're also talking about a guy who single-handedly picked up the phone and called Jermaine to tell him not to do it ... not even a year ago."
