BlocBoy JB Arrested For Drug Possession And Felony Gun Charge In Tennessee

A day before he was scheduled to perform at a music festival, rapper BlocBoy JB was arrested for a felony gun charge and drug possession in Shelby County, Tenn.

The Memphis area rapper (real name James Baker) was arrested on Thursday (May 2) and charged for being a "Convicted Felon in Possession of a handgun, speeding, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Possession of Controlled Substance Marijuana," per Fox 13 Memphis. The "Shoot" MC was slated to hit the stage at the Memphis In May Beale Street Music Festival on Friday (May 3).

Authorities say that the 22-year-old's arrest was part of a "multi-agency investigation," and around 20 people were taken into custody. Those taken into custody were hanging out at a house near Shelby Drive and Forest Hill Irene Road, and the incident took place in July 2018.

"Robert Griffin, Vice President of Marketing for Memphis in May, said they will announce any possible changes to the festival lineup once they receive more information," reports Commercial Appeal.

In February, BlocBoy turned himself into authorities for drug and gun possession. For this particular incident, he was charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun, and theft of property.

DJ Khaled Drops "Weather The Storm" Video Starring Meek Mill And Lil Baby

At this point, saying "another one" is redundant and exhausting. With that being said, DJ Khaled dropped another music video from his recently released album, Father of Asahd. The new visuals were for "Weather the Storm," starring Meek Mill and Lil Baby.

The black-and-white video shows the trio sharing a powerful message in front of a church choir. Both Meek and Lil Baby remind fans of the hurdles they had to jump over to make it to their spot. "I went from licks to most wanted to the top of the Forbes/F**ked up the trenches/I weather the storm/Young living legend, I be on that sh*t that these n***as ain't on," Meek spits.

As previously mentioned, "Weather the Storm" is the latest single to receive video treatment from Khaled's 11th studio album. The mega-producer previously dropped the videos for "Wish Wish," starring Cardi B and 21 Savage, the Nipsey Hussle and John Legend-assisted single, "Higher," "Just Us" with SZA, "Celebrate" featuring Travis Scott and Post Malone, and "Jealous" with Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, and Big Sean.

Aretha Franklin's Niece Discovers Handwritten Will Under Couch Cushions

Aretha Franklin's niece, Sabrina Owens, was sorting through her aunt's personal belongings when she discovered three handwritten wills scattered throughout her Oakland County, Michigan home, The Associated Press reports. It was originally believed that Franklin didn't leave a will behind.

Owens reportedly found one of the wills, which was written in 2010, under couch cushions. The other two, written in 2014, she came across in a locked cabinet. All three of the wills were filed in a probate court in Oakland County.

In the documents, Franklin requested that her son, Kecalf Franklin, be the personal representative of her estate, although he previously handed the reigns over to Owens. The 2014 document details which assets should go to which relative.

A statement from Owens said, "She remains neutral and wishes that all parties involved make wise choices on behalf of their mother, her rich legacy, the family and the Aretha Franklin estate."

It's been nearly one year since Aretha Franklin passed away in Aug. 2018. The legendary musician was 76 years old at the time of her death.

A hearing to confirm the validity of the wills is scheduled for June 12.
