Young Thug Dodges 2015 Drug And Gun Charges Thanks To Overzealous Cops

That was a close one. 

Young Thug may have a lot of other problems, but his 2015 drug and weapons charge isn't one of them. A court reportedly threw out his 2015 legal case in which he was charged with multiple counts of possession, due to an illegal police search of his Georgia home, TMZ reports.

Back in July 2015, Thugger's Sandy Springs home was subject to a police raid in which cops found weapons and illegal drugs. The "Them" rapper was reportedly arrested on the scene and charged with felony cocaine and marijuana possession, as well as three counts of felony gun possession, according to police reports.

While the charges seemed to hold up at first, Thug's lawyers reportedly argued that the police who searched the rapper's residence did so without a legal warrant, according to TMZ. The court subsequently sided with the rapper, forcing a district attorney to drop all charges, except for the marijuana offense.

In the past two years, Thug has found himself at the center of many legals cases. Earlier in March 2017, it was revealed that he was accused of allegedly assaulting a woman. In December 2016, the rapper was arrested in a mall in Atlanta for missing a court case for another incident. So it may be a victory today, but Thug's legal squad might want to advise the rapper on changing his behavior before one of these cases ends up sticking.

Meek Mill Responds To Comedian Michael Rapaport's Critique

While Meek Mill's pregame performance at the NBA All-Star game on Sunday (Feb. 17) may have been praised by many on Twitter, there was one person who was not impressed by the Philadelphia rapper's appearance. Comedian/actor Michael Rapaport used his Twitter account to critique Mill, but the latter didn't hold his tongue back either.

"Aye @michaelrapaport don't ever use the word trash when you speaking on nothing from our culture unless you tryna get trashed," Meek wrote. "#2 who gave you authorization to be speaking on us? #3 what you charging now?"

A couple of tweets after his first response to Rapaport, the "Going Bad" rapper posted a picture with the New York City native who he claims "wanted a selfie" with him.

The tweets that got Mill fired up by the 48-year-old entertainer featured references about the rapper's previous beef with Drake and his, in Rapaport's opinion, incapability to rap on beat.

"Where I'm from, if you get dragged by DRAKE & don't respond you're & always will be WACK," Rapaport started.

Where I’m from, if you get dragged by DRAKE & don’t respond you’re & always will be WACK.

Rico Nasty Teams Up With Zack Fox To Release Meme Filled Video For "Sandy"

Rico Nasty might not appear in her new video, but the memes will make you stay anyway.

Over the weekend, the rapper and rage connoisseur dropped a music video her new track "Sandy." Directed by comedian Zack Fox, the Kenny Beats produced tune brings out the best in Rico as she enjoys her warranted glow-up while comparing her lifted moments to Spongebob Squarepants' other bestie, Sandy Cheeks. “Smoking out the bowl like a b***h named Sandy / I’m original that’s why the b***hes can’t stand me.”

Her chemistry with Kenny Beats has always been strong (listen to "Trust Issues), but Zack's varied selection of memes will take you back to the days of lurking on Failblog before memes were a popular Internet snack.

In addition to releasing tracks like “Big D**k Energy,” and “Roof,” the Brooklyn native dropped Countin Up, a documentary powered by The Fader to highlight her journey in the music industry and motherhood.

Check out the "Sandy" video up top and the Countin Up documentary below.

Cardi B And Blueface Release Music Video For “Thotiana” Remix

Cardi B is on a hot streak since taking home the Grammy Award (Feb. 10) for Best Rap Album (Invasion of Privacy). The Bronx native’s triumph at the annual showcase kept her steady on a path of musical domination since releasing her second collaboration with Bruno Mars (“Please Me”) and recently, the remix to Blueface’s “Thotiana.”

Decked out in a red bandana-print outfit, Cardi appears in the Cole Bennett-directed visual to spit a sensual verse. “Bust is, bust it, I’m a savage/ Bi**h, throw it back like a 10-year challenge/ Take him to the crib, the I push him on the sofa/ Have his breath smelling like pu**y and mimosa.”

In April 2018, Cardi B unveiled her debut album to fanfare. Since then, the mother-of-one has remained a dominant figure in the music industry and she hopes to further solidify that presence with her upcoming sophomore project. “Hopefully I can get my album done around the same time that Invasion of Privacy came out,” she previously said. “I don’t know how possible that’s gonna to be because I feel like I’m gonna be extremely, extremely busy.”

Until then, watch the "Thotiana (Remix)" video above.
