Young Thug Released From Jail, On Strict Probation

Thugger is a changed man.

After spending six days in custody, Young Thug, born Jefferey Williams, has been released from jail.

Freed on Tuesday (Nov. 14), Superior Court Judge Gregory Adams ruled that Williams could go home on the condition that he submit to bi-weekly drug tests, undergo substance abuse counseling and frequently check in with his probation officer.

“I’m sorry for disobeying the court. I’m sorry for disobeying my PO and being here again,” Williams told the judge. “I just want to be home with my family and do right.”

Thug went on to say that during his time spent behind bars, he took the time to reflect and finally realize the example he's bad example he was setting for his kids and fans. “I gots sons, thats 10 and 11 years old. They look up to me. I even want them to think that going to jail – even if you're able to get right out of jail – is cool."

According to his lawyer, Williams also punished himself during his first 48 hours of his time in custody, spending a majority of the time in isolation and refusing to eat or drink. Booked at DeKalb County Jail on Nov. 8, Thugger was reportedly being held with no bond and would await trial from behind bars after failing to pass a routine drug test stemming from his 2017 arrest.

In Sept. 2017, the rapper was pulled over in Brookhaven, Georgia for illegally-tinted windows when cops found multiple drugs and a firearm in his possession. As a result of the arrest, Thug was charged with 8 felony accounts in Sept. 2018, including the possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone and marijuana. He's also charged with possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam, two counts of codeine possession and a firearm.

Later that month, Young Thug was busted during his Slime Language release party for the possession of an illegal firearm.

Nipsey Hussle Involved In L.A. Brawl After Being Mistaken For O.T. Genasis

Nipsey Hussle had a pretty eventful weekend. The rapper was reportedly involved in a brawl outside of a nightclub in West Hollywood on Sunday (Dec. 9). The only problem is, Nipsey wasn't the target; O.T. Genasis was.

The Victory Lap artist was reportedly outside of his girlfriend Lauren London's birthday bash at Nightingale's when the incident occurred. According to TMZ, several men approached Nipsey and his crew in the parking lot. A couple of them reportedly swung on the rapper before security was called to break up the situation.

While the brawl seemed random, but it apparently stemmed from an earlier interaction with O.T. Genasis. Earlier that night, the "Everybody Mad" rapper was reportedly spotted punching a man outside of the nightclub before chopping it up with Nipsey Hussle. TMZ reports that the unidentified man and friends were looking to even the score with O.T. Genasis and got mixed up because both him and Nipsey were wearing plaid shirts on the night of the incident. While it has not been confirmed, the situation looks like a typical case of mistaken identity.

Despite the drama, Nipsey seemed pretty unbothered when TMZ caught up with him outside of LAX. "That's life. We don't give that s**t no attention," Nipsey said about the altercation. "We workin' on music at this point. Do I got any bruises, any scratches? We workin' bro."

Ciara Requests Mediation With Future Over Son's Travel Schedule

Ciara has had enough of the back and forth with her ex Future over their son's travel schedule. Now, she's requesting help from the family court. The singer is reportedly asking the judge to force Future into mediation with her so they can hash out a travel schedule for their four-year-old, Future Jr.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Future has been a flake when it comes to keeping up with his visits with his son. He's allegedly missed scheduled visits and has frequently left baby Future with his mother or grandmother without spending time with him. The "Level Up" artist also noted that the constant traveling has been taxing on her son. So, she wants to figure out a schedule for his own wellbeing.

Ciara's legal team alleges that they attempted to straighten out a schedule without help from a judge, but were unsuccessful. If a judge will not grant a mandatory mediation, Ciara is requesting to settle the matter in a trial hearing.

Ciara and Future have had a very tumultuous relationship throughout the years. The former couple have been in and out of the courts regarding custody and child support. Hopefully, they will reach some middle ground in the new year.

Vic Mensa Apologized To XXXTentacion's Mother Over BET Freestyle Diss

Vic Mensa sparked controversy earlier this year after he took jabs at XXXTentacion's abusive past during a freestyle at the 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards. Many criticized the timing of his diss, saying he shouldn't have said it while X's mother was in attendance to accept her son's award. While Vic stated that he doesn't regret his comments, he admitted that he did apologize to X's mom.

"I actually reached out to his mother personally,” the rapper said during an appearance on radio's "The Breakfast Club" on Monday (Dec. 10). "I apologized to her because I didn’t know she would be in attendance… I wouldn’t walk back any of my statements because what I said, I meant. And some more truth came to light not long after."

He also mentioned that although his timing was inappropriate, his talking points were important and necessary. "At the end of the day, I do think that the conversation that I was trying to bring up and that I did bring up is a super necessary conversation," he continued. "Maybe the way of going about it was not the best for the time, but I think the conversation is one that had to be had – talking about violence against women and misogyny in hip-hop, but particularly violence against women. I had a lot of people on the low reach out to me and thank me for that."

As previously mentioned, XXXTentacion was accused of physically abusing his then-pregnant, ex-girlfriend. Vic's freestyle included the lines: "Only time you bear arms is in a wife beater, loser/Your favorite rapper is an abuser." Weeks after the viral diss, audio obtained by Pitchfork, revealed the rapper admitting to committing physical harm against her and others.
