Kanye West Reportedly Seeks Restraining Order Against Daz Dillinger

Dillinger says the police had questions for him after his comments about West. 

Shortly after his high-profile tirade against Kanye West, Daz Dillinger claims law enforcement are now involved.

Dillinger shared on his Snapchat account West has talked to authorities about the West Coast's legend's call to action for crip members to approach the rapper. “Kanye put a restraining order on me,” he said. “F**k Kanye, I appreciate it.” Tha Dogg Pound MC recently called out the G.O.O.D Music founder for his statements on social media in a series of Instagram videos, which he eventually deleted.

Once The Game and Eric Benet claimed Daz's threats were serious, the LAPD felt compelled to question the LBC rapper about his viral threats. Daz recently recapped the encounter and posted it on his timeline.

However, at the end of Ye's infamous TMZ interview, he says he loves Daz and the Crips.

KANYE SAY HE 💙s DAZ & THE CRIPS

As of press time, there haven't been any reports of disgruntled members of the gang actually taking Daz's suggestion seriously. Also, no official paperwork has surfaced regarding the restraining order. However, in today's age of mass shootings and chemical warfare, it's better for Ye to be safe than sorry.

Daz's frustration stems from Kanye West's initial declaration of support for President Donald Trump. Since posting photos of himself wearing a MAGA hat and hanging out with far-right "free thinkers" like Candace Owens, Yeezy has felt the backlash from fellow artists, Chicago natives, activists, educators and fans alike.

VIBE reached out to the legendary West Coast producer/rapper to clarify his threats towards Kanye and he simply replied, “My new album Crip God is due soon & my new single “Fucc ‘Em Up!”

On Wednesday (May 2) he posted to social media the making of his single.

How ironic.

Five-Part Tupac Documentary Series In The Works

Tupac Shakur's estate has entered an agreement with famed director Allen Hughes to produce a thorough documentary on the former's life, Deadline reports. Hughes inked a deal with the slain rapper's holders that'll feature content of poetry and never-before-heard recordings. Per the news site, it's being described as "the first definitive, comprehensive project on Shakur with the full cooperation of the estate."

Hughes and Tupac's working relationship goes back to the '90s. Alongside his brother Albert Hughes, they directed Tupac's "Brenda's Got a Baby" music video. From there, they prepared to have the actor star in their debut film, Menace II Society, as Sharif (played by Vonte Sweet). However, Allen Hughes and Tupac engaged in a dispute which resulted in the former sustaining injuries from the latter's entourage. As a result, Tupac served 15 days in jail and later declined to be part of the film. Reports state Tupac wanted the role to be more substantial.

In a 2013 interview with MTV News, Hughes stated Tupac's impact during that time would've eclipsed the film. “If ‘Pac had been in the movie he would’ve outshined everyone," Hughes said. “It would’ve thrown the whole axis of the movie off if Tupac was in it, because he was bigger than the movie.”

Hughes recently directed The Defiant Ones that pinned a spotlight on music industry executive Jimmy Iovine and pivotal producer Dr. Dre's business acumen. Details on his latest venture are still forthcoming.

Baltimore Sergeant To Plead Guilty To Planting Evidence

A retired Baltimore police sergeant will enter a guilty plea next week after prosecutors allege he planted evidence at a 2014 crime scene.

According to The Baltimore Sun, Keith Gladstone was out to dinner with another officer when he received a frantic phone call from his mentee, Sgt. Wayne Jenkins who said he ran down a man with his car in Northeast Baltimore.

Gladstone allegedly got a BB gun from the trunk of his police car and drove it to the scene in question. When he arrived he “dropped the BB gun near a pickup truck” as the man named Demetric Simon laid on the ground injured. Per an indictment, Jenkins told another officer to move the BB gun closer to Simon.

During an interview with The Sun, Simon denies having any weapons on his person, especially a BB gun. “I never had no BB gun,” Simon last year. “I never aimed nothing at him. He ran me over because I was getting away.”

Gladstone and Jenkins often collaborated together with Jenkins going onto lead the corrupt Gun Trace Task Force Unit. He's now serving 25 years in federal prison.

New charges outline Jenkins wrote the false police statement against Simon, however, attributed it to another cop who was at the scene.

It appears Gladstone's unethical ways have caught up to him. He reportedly worked in high-ranking drug units despite misconduct accusations that included being reprimanded by a federal judge and also being found liable by a civil jury for assaulting a man in 2015 during an arrest.

Gladstone has been charged with conspiracy to deprive civil rights, conspiracy to commit offenses against the United States and witness tampering. If convicted of all three, he could face 20 years in prison.
