On hand in City Hall was C.J. Wallace, the song of Biggie, and Chief Advisor Dr. Ingrid Lewis-Martin. Adams spoke to the impact of Biggie’s life and the work that he created that lives on today.

“Biggie Smalls is truly an icon. All of the elected officials, from the top executive in New York City, the public advocate and our attorney general, all grew up on Biggie Smalls,” Adams said.

According to NY1, Adams also highlighted the way Biggie navigated to stardom with the assistance of his mother, Voletta Wallace.

“He was raised by a single mom,” Adams said. “That’s why so many of us could relate to it. Just the love his mother showed. But what he did, that I believe was so much more significant, is that he was able to turn pain into purpose. He used his music to define what was happening in everyday life.”

Yesterday, the Empire State Building held a ceremony with Bad Boy Records, Atlantic, and Rhino Records to light the building red and blue with a crown spinning on top.

Wendy Williams Reportedly Not Happy With Wells Fargo Financial Guardian

Screen Shot 2022 05 08 at 8.28.10 AM 1

Last week it was reported that Wendy Williams was close to settling her dispute with Wells Fargo after the courts appointed a financial guardian to oversee her accounts. Page Six is reporting that Wendy is not on board with the new arrangements.

From Page Six

Wendy Williams isn’t happy with a court appointing her a financial guardian amid her lawsuit against Wells Fargo.

An attorney for the “How You Doin’?” host told Page Six in a statement Friday that Williams doesn’t want anyone but her to have control of her money in response to the Sun’s report about a judge’s decision to appoint a guardian.

“Please be advised that Wendy is not in agreement with the appointment of a financial guardian by the court. Wendy has been very clear that she does not want a financial guardian to tell her what she can and cannot do with her money,” La’Shawn Thomas said.

Thomas added that the talk show host, 57, “feels that she is capable” of hiring her own team who would work for her “and not the court.”

Thomas went so far as to suggest that Wells Fargo may have leaked the report “in an attempt to lessen the public outcry and regulatory scrutiny mounting around” the bank.

Dave Chappelle’s Attacker Charged with Attempted Murder in Separate Attack

Dave Chappelle's Attacker Charged with Attempted Murder From A Different Attack

Dave Chappelle‘s attacker has a new charge and it is completely unrelated to the Netflix is a Joke incident. According to Complex, L.A.’s District Attorney’s Office announced that 23-year-old Isaiah Lee was charged with attempted murder. The new charge is in connection with an incident from 2021.

According to authorities, Lee is accused of stabbing a roomate during an altercation at a housing apartment on Dec. 2. Lee pleaded not guilty.

“The publicity generated by the attack on Mr. Chappelle helped police solve this crime,” said LA County District Attorney George Gascón. “The incident that occurred at the Hollywood Bowl was misdemeanor conduct and rightfully referred to the City Attorney’s Office. Based on the nature and severity of the December attack, Mr. Lee is now facing felony charges which my office will prosecute.”

For his attack on Chappelle Lee was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon. At one point, Lee created a rap song called “Dave Chappell” in 2020, the song didn’t contain any messages that could assume harm would one day come to the A-List comedian.

The Los Angeles Police Department stated the man was carrying a “replica handgun” with a knife blade inside when he tackled Chappelle. After he tackled Chappelle, the man attempted to flee the area but was quickly surrounded and “stomped out,” as Chappelle alluded to onstage. Images and video from the scene show the damage to Lee’s body, most notably a severely disfigured arm.

SOURCE SPORTS: Deion Sanders Wants No Parts Of a “Private” Conversation With Nick Saban

Deion Sanders Drops Surprise Gems To Keep A Woman Happy

Jackson State University head coach Deion Sanders has no interest in taking a call from Alabama head coach Nick Saban anytime soon. Recently, Saban alleged Wednesday at a conference in Birmingham that Jackson State paid top recruit Travis Hunter $1 million to go to the HBCU and flip his commitment. He also accused Texas A&M of essentially buying players using NIL deals.

After his initial comments, Saban wanted to clear the air with Sanders, but he didn’t want any parts of it privately. Sanders is open to talking about everything public instead.

“I haven’t talked to Coach Saban. I’m sure he’s tried to call. We need to talk publicly — not privately. What you said was public. That doesn’t require a conversation. Let’s talk publicly and let everybody hear the conversation,” Sanders told Andscape on Thursday.

“You can’t do that publicly and call privately. No, no, no. I still love him. I admire him. I respect him. He’s the magna cum laude of college football and that’s what it’s going to be because he’s earned that.”

After Saban’s initial claim, Sanders first responded via Twitter with a clean and professional response.

Sanders said Hunter didn’t come to Jackson State, a Football Championship Subdivision school, to chase a dollar.

“I don’t make a million. Travis ain’t built like that. Travis ain’t chasing a dollar. Travis is chasing greatness. Travis and his family don’t get down like that. They never came to us in search of the bag. They’re not built like that. This kid wants to be great.”

Saban is looking crazy right now with his claims without proof. Alabama has been a dominant program, always attracting top recruits. NILs have leveled the playing field, and Saban has to adjust and not sound so bitter about it.

Bhad Bhabie Teases Her Pole Dancing Talents For Instagram: Watch

If there’s one thing that 19-year-old Bhad Bhabie – born Danielle Bregoli – is a pro at, it’s getting the word’s attention with ease. During the earlier years of her life, the Florida native rose to fame after a controversial stint on Dr. Phil, and since then, she’s only gotten more mature (and wealthy).

Back in April, the “Gucci Flip Flops” hitmaker claimed that she had earned $50 million thanks to her endeavours on OnlyFans, and when haters began to doubt her, she didn’t hesitate to pull out the receipts. “Go cry about it bitch,” she wrote in the caption of the alleged screenshot from her profile, flexing a fat payday.

If you’re not quite ready to subscribe to the recording artist’s OF account, you should consider checking out her Instagram, where she’s been teasing some mildly spicy content – including one photo/video dump from earlier this week that finds her showing off her pole dancing skills.

The young starlet wore a pale blue romper for her workout on the pole, which includes several racy cutouts in the front and smaller ones placed on her hips. She paired the look with some sky-high silver stripper heels, which only add inches to her already long legs as she spins around in what looks like her apartment.

In the final shot, we see Bhabie squatted over, looking away from the mirror while angling her camera to snap the perfect booty picture beside her Hello Kitty carpet.

Chalynn Drops Her First Single “What You Do” Under 4PF

Back in November of 2020, Lil Baby signed singer, Chalynn Monee, to his label, 4 Pockets Full, better known as 4PF. Not only did she become the first lady of the esteemed record company, but she also took the seat as the first R&B artist as well. Since joining the team nearly two years ago, the Georgia is just now giving her fans what they’ve been longing to hear. 

Yesterday (May 20), Chalynn dropped her very first single “What You Do.” The three-minute song is filled with guitar strums and bass, along with Chalynn’s light and seductive voice. The message of the song is about being submissive to your partner by accident. In her first verse, she sings, “You put me in a trance/You took over/Thinking ’bout things I can’t take back/Mind blown how you do that.”

Following up on the meaning of her track, the songstress goes into her catchy chorus. “What you do to me/It feels like you have full control over my body/I won’t fight it/I think I like it,” she harmonizes.

To accompany the record, she released a music video. Using a black and white aesthetic, Chalynn shows off some skin in the visual that now has over 20,000 views. 

Watch the video below, and stream the song on Apple Music and Spotify. 

Quotable Lyrics

Forbidden fruit, it’s yours
Come in my world, explore
Alter ego when I’m with you
You make me bad, bad

This is not Maslany’s first experience in the world of television. Fans of Orphan Black will recognize her as the central protagonist Sarah Manning. She also gained notoriety in her role as Sister Alice McKeegan in Perry Mason.
