Sigh


george zimmerman kanye west boxing match

I don’t even know where to start with this, but here’s what we know so far. Last week it was reported that George Zimmerman had agreed to a celebrity (the term “celebrity” being used very loosely) boxing match. The racist, child murdering piece of shit former security guard was offered money to fight from boxing promoter Damon Feldman and, needless to say, the line for potential opponents was longer than people camping out for the Air Jordan Gamma Blue 11s.

The Game (as in the 6’5″, 240lbs former Blood gang member) and DMX (no introduction necessary) have both come forward hoping to get in the ring (or “beat the living fuck out him,” as X put it). But according to TMZ, it’s Kanye West who Zimmerman wants to fight. Promoters tell TMZ he wants to fight Ye because he attacks not only paparazzi, but “defenseless people.”

Reason #712 George Zimmerman should be rotting in a cell right now.

Moments after debuting his “Confident” video, Justin Bieber turned himself in to Toronto police on Wednesday night. Justin’s charges are elated to a December incident. Screaming fans and media covered Toronto’s 52 Division station while waiting for Bieber’s arrival, who was charged with criminal assault after allegedly assaulting a limo driver. According to TMZ, Justin will be booked for assault, given a citation, and released on his own recognizance.

The news comes hours after the pop star Bieber pleaded not guilty in Florida to charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license in Miami last week. There’s also an on going petition to have the Canadian star deported. The signatures are now passing the standard 100,000 signature mark and it now requires a response from the White House.

Chris Brown appeared in a Los Angeles court on Monday for a progress hearing. L.A. Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin revoked Chris Brown’s probation after the R&B star was hit with assault charges following an altercation in Washington D.C. earlier this year.

wale complex

Leave Wale off your end-of-year list, and receive an angry phone call full of threats. That’s what Complex Magazine discovered on Wednesday afternoon as the MMG rapper phoned Associate Editor Insanul Ahmed and expressed his outrage that The Gifted wasn’t included on their list of 50 Best Albums of 2013. Folarin’s emotions escalated over the three-minute call as he accused Complex of holding a personal bias and favoring albums like Juicy J’s Stay Trippy over his, before threatening physical violence.

I swear to God I’ll come to that office and start knocking n****s the f*ck out. Alright. I’ll see y’all tomorrow. Get the security ready.

We’re not going to sit here and pretend like this kind of thing hasn’t been happening since the dawn of hip-hop journalism, but threatening a publication and its staff for not giving your music love is no laughing matter. Come on, Wale.

nelson-mandela

One of the greatest leaders of modern times, Nelson Mandela, passed away Thursday afternoon at the age of 95. The revolutionary, politician, and former President of South Africa lost a well-documented long battle with illness. A transformative figure in world history, Mandela was remembered by various celebrities on various social media platforms moments after current South African president Jacob Zuma confirmed the tragic news.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nas, Justin Timberlake, Q-Tip, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, John Legend, Ludacris, Kelly Rowland, Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J, and more sent their prayers, wishes, and memories to Mandela on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and in Jay Z’s case his Life and Times website.

“It always seems impossible until it is done.” – Nelson Mandela

Thank you.

Rest In PEACE.

MissInfo.TV is sad to report that Nelson Mandela has passed away. The former president battled health issues in recent months, including a recurring lung infection that led to numerous hospitalizations. He was released from a South African prison after nearly 27 years and there’s no doubt that Mandela did everything in his power to lead his people out of Apartheid. South African President Jacob Zuma announced late Thursday that the statesman died from health complications at the age of 95. His legacy will undoubtly live on through all those inspired by his life and actions. Rest in peace to a true king.
