Lil Durk To Surrender On Charges Connected To Atlanta Shooting

Lil Durk is a wanted man. The Atlanta Police Department reportedly issued an arrest warrant for the rapper in regards to his connection to a shooting that took place at Atlanta's popular fast-food restaurant, The Varsity, TMZ reports. According to Lil Durk, he has every intention of turning himself into the authorities.

Law enforcement wants to book Lil Durk on five felony charges, including criminal intent to commit murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and another charge of associating with a criminal street gang to participate in a crime.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ, officers responded to reports of a person shot at The Varsity around 5:45 am on Feb. 5, 2019. Upon their arrival, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. Police reportedly recovered 13 shell casings from a rifle and pistol at the scene and found a firearm. The victim was rushed to a hospital and underwent surgery.

After speaking to two witnesses, they were told the victim got into a verbal dispute with an unknown black male before the shooting. It is unclear if Lil Durk is believed to be the lone shooter at this time.

Following the arrest warrant, Durk turned to Instagram where he announced that he was "turning myself in tomorrow."

Police are still investigating the incident.

In a new interview with Essence, Aiko spoke on the “healing” properties of her music and discussed how she maintains privacy in the age of social media -- especially with all the chatter surrounding her relationship with Sean after the two seemingly broke up and got back together.

“The internet has made everyone aware of their opinion,” she said. “As many people as there are in the world, that’s how many opinions there are. If you let that many opinions affect your own opinion, and your own way of looking at things, you’re going to be so confused. I just love the feeling of taking that away from people; their need to have to say something or have to give their opinion because I personally have never been that way—well maybe when I was younger, or high or drunk.

“Whether it be something with me and Sean, or me and my daughter,” continued Aiko. “I share about one percent of my whole being with the internet. Even in my songs, that’s literally one moment that I’m talking about or when I felt that way. There’s so much more to my relationship with my [late] brother [Miyagi], or with my daughter, or with Sean. People hear a song like ‘Triggered’ and they’re like, ‘Oh, do we hate him now?’ In the grand scheme of things that was like a moment.”

Alicia Keys Honors Kobe Bryant With Performance of "Moonlight Sonata"

After helping honor Kobe Bryant's life during the Grammy Awards, musician Alicia Keys paid tribute to the future Hall of Fame basketball player again during Bryant's memorial service at the Staples Center.

On Monday, Feb. 24, Keys sat at a piano and joined an orchestra of violinists to play her version of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata." As Los Angeles Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka said of his friend, Bryant learned to play Beethoven's masterpiece by ear as a gift to his wife. But he didn't take lessons from a professional; in pure Kobe fashion, he learned to play the iconic composition by ear.

"Sitting down and taking lessons would be too easy. So I taught myself by ear," Bryant said, according to a story by Bleacher Report. "...If you just sit down and say, 'I'm going to learn this thing until I do,' there's not really much out there that you can't figure out eventually."

Keys, wearing a purple outfit, played the song as the jumbotron in Staples Center showed images of Bryant with his teenaged daughter Gianna. As the performance ended, she appeared to be fighting tears as she showed gratitude toward the audience and to her fellow musicians.

Kobe and Giana were among nine people who died in a helicopter crash on Sunday, January 26, 2020.
