Childish Gambino Announces U.S. Arena Tour With Rae Sremmurd

Earlier this year, Donald Glover assured everyone he would be releasing his fourth and final album as Childish Gambino before retiring the alter-ego. But the Childish Gambino era is far from over, as Glover announced a 13-date arena tour throughout the United States, where he will be teaming up with Rae Sremmurd for the month of September. Other than an appearance at Governor's Ball last summer and an intimate show on the eve of the Grammy Awards this year, this marks Gambino's first tour in support of his Grammy-nominated 2016 album, Awaken, My Love!.

In the meantime, much of the 34-year-old's schedule is booked up with other endeavors. The "Terrified" artist has been cast to play the role of Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story movie, which will be hitting theaters in late May. The RCA Records artist has also been holed up on the set of The Lion King remake, where he is portraying the young king, Simba.

Glover's busy production schedule pushed his Atlanta series on a nearly two-year hiatus, as season two returned last Thursday (March 1) on FX. Donald was recently profiled in The New Yorker, where he also divulged on how he "Trojan-horsed" executives into green-lighting the show, in addition to a multitude of other topics.

John Singleton In Coma After Suffering From A Stroke

John Singleton is reportedly in a coma after suffering from a major stroke, TMZ reports.

The Boyz N the Hood filmmaker has reportedly been in the ICU since last weekend. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Singleton's mother, Sheila Ward, is asking a judge to appoint her temporary conservator of his work because he is "unable to properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter." Singleton was reportedly working on several projects and preparing to sign a lucrative settlement agreement at the time of his stroke, according to Ward.

As previously reported, Singleton suffered a stroke on April 17, after returning from Costa Rica. After experiencing problems with his legs, he reportedly checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he suffered a stroke in his hospital room.

Bun B's Lawyer Provides Update On Attempted Armed Robbery Aftermath

On Tuesday (April 24), Bun B confronted an armed robber, who was later identified as 20-year-old DeMonte Jackson. The latter attempted to rob the legendary rapper's home but acted swiftly with his own registered firearm. When Bun B's wife, Angela "Queenie" Walls answered a knock on the door, a masked Freeman entered with his weapon but was later met with the Trill rapper's fire and was detained at a hospital while being treated for his wounds.

In a statement provided to XXL, lawyer Charles Adams said he doesn't expect charges to be filed against the Texas native. "In Texas, you can defend your home. And if an armed home invader breaks into your home and puts a gun at your wife's head, you can shoot the guy if he's still in your home," Adams said. "Honestly, this might sound cheesy, thank God that Bun had a gun. Thank God that he was courageous enough to defend his home and his wife [Queenie]. And thank God Queenie was courageous enough to not let the man go upstairs."

As Queenie led Jackson to the garage, Bun B, born Bernard Freeman, became aware of the incident from another part of the house and opened fire on Jackson. The latter was charged with one count of burglary plus two levies of aggravated robbery.

Former Felons May Have To Pay Court Fines Before Voting In Florida

Florida made history when it passed Amendment 4 restoring voting rights to the state's nearly one million former felons.

However, on Wednesday (April 24) the GOP-House passed a bill that would require former felons to pay court fees, fine,s and restitution prior to voting. The Senate bill requires that just restitution be paid. If this measure is passed it could prohibit thousands of ex-cons from being able to vote.

The state reportedly also doesn't have a method to properly tally restitution and to create a system could cost millions. On Wednesday, the House considered a proposal by the Senate that would allot $2 million to hire more workers at the Florida Commission on Offender Review to review the applications of former felons.

That commission would then report their findings to local supervisors of elections.

“Obviously, the individual is responsible for determining whether they’ve completed all the terms of their own sentence,” Sen. Jeff Brandes “If they have questions, they should go to local supervisors of elections.”
