BREAKING NEWS: Frank Ocean & Crew Run Up On Chris Brown; Chris Defends Himself By Punching Ocean In The Face

chrisfrank1

This needs to really stop before someone gets hurt! In the past, Chris Brown & Frank Ocean had issues but I thought they made peace. Apparently, they didn’t! Over this past weekend, Brown and Ocean got into a fight in Los Angeles over a parking spot. It is being reported that Ocean and his crew started the fight by blocking Brown from leaving, which resulted into Brown punching Ocean in the face. Below is how TMZ is reporting the story:

Chris Brown was involved in an all-out brawl with Frank Ocean Sunday night, and sources connected with Chris insist Ocean started it. Chris was at Westlake Studio in the L.A. area listening to one of the artists he represents.  The sources say as Chris went to leave, Frank Ocean and his crew blocked Chris from leaving. The sources say Frank said, “This is my studio, this is my parking spot.” We’re told Chris went to shake Frank’s hand … and that’s when one of Frank’s people attacked Chris.  Sources connected with Chris say one of Chris’ friends jumped in front and hit Frank’s friend. Sources connected with Chris say Frank then came at Chris … Chris pushed him away and they started brawling. The police were called and are on scene now.

UPDATE 10:45PM PT: Police have cleared the scene. We’re told Chris Brown was not there when officers arrived — but they did speak to Frank Ocean. At this point … we’re told no one wants to press charges, and no arrests have been made.

UPDATE 3:00 AM PT:  Cops say they will continue to investigate and want to speak with Chris Brown.  They refer to Ocean as “the victim” because he’s the one who stuck around and spoke with police.  Ocean said the fight started over a parking space (how L.A.) and Brown punched him.  There were 6 people involved in the fight.

BREAKING NEWS: Up & Coming Harlem Rapper Dominic Lord Signs Major Record Deal With Geffen

The bidding war is over! Congrats goes out to up & coming Harlem rapper Dominic Lord. He just signed a major record deal with Geffen Records via Gee Robinson. This makes Dominic the first artist to sign to Geffen since Gee Robinson has been appointed Chairman of the prominent label back in 2011. Gee Robinson also serves as co-CEO of Hip Hop Since 1978, the management firm that handles Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Drake and more.

Back in August, I labeled Dominic “the next rising star to come out of Harlem”. Before he dropped his mixtape, Fashion Show, Dominic sat in meetings with Geffen, Warner Bros, Def Jam and more. Obviously, Geffen offered him the best deal. Dominic was an early member of the A$AP movement with Rocky, Ferg, Bari, Nast and others.

Dominic is being represented my music manager Steven Victor (Pusha T’s manager) and  entertainment lawyer Theo Sedlmayr (50 Cent, Chief Keef). He has also been in the studio with Stargate, Hudson Mohawke and Benny Blanco. He is currently on the California coast working with producer Young Chop.

This 18-year-old kid is very talented! He has a bright future ahead of him. Dominic, welcome to the music industry, give it all you have and take your talents pass the stars.

President Obama Re-elected!

Many of us are extremely happy that the election is over and we can finally return to a sense of normalcy this morning.  With the re-election of President Obama there seems to be a consensus from the right-wing folks who think that the President’s re-election is due to Americans voting for him because we depend on social programs that are “hand-outs.” To that I say workers have paid $5 trillion into the Social Security system above what has been spent in the last 75 years. The money goes into the Treasury, and the Treasury gives the SSA (Social Security Administration) treasury bonds. So, in essence, $5 trillion of the national debt is owed to the SSA, which means that it is owed to us, the American workers who have paid and are continually paying into the system for all our working lives. Getting your own money back is not a handout.

The same goes for SNAP (food stamps), disaster relief, unemployment, and so forth. That’s not to say that there are some people out there who don’t abuse the system, but that’s like saying one crooked cop makes all cops crooked. Most of us pay our taxes into the Treasury in the belief that if things go bad for us, and we need help, that help will be there for us, and if we don’t need that help our fellow citizens will. Getting the money back that we paid in is no more a “hand-out” than having your insurance company pay to repair your car is a “hand-out.”

What are your thoughts?
