Freddie Gibbs and two other victims were shot at after a performance in Brooklyn, New York.

Freddie Gibbs saw a bit of drama last night after capping off a successful performance at Rough Trade in Brooklyn. After the show ended, the rapper was shot at multiple times although thankfully he suffered no significant injuries, but two members of his entourage can’t say the same.

The NY Post reports that Gangsta Gibbs and two other members of his entourage were sitting in his black SUV at North 9th Street near Wythe Avenue when shots were fired at his vehicle. Gibbs thought he was the intended target of the shots, although he left unharmed. Reports say Gibbs’ DJ was hit in the leg, while another victim was hit in the hand. A law enforcement source says that it was a single gunman involved, and he opened fire at around 1:13 AM.

Gibbs reportedly told the NY Post outside of Rough Trade, “They tried to kill Tupac. They tried to kill me. I’m still alive.” He also took to Instagram after the shooting to write, “Yep. Still livin. Thanks NYC.”

Both victims were brought to Bellevue Hospital and are currently in stable condition. No arrests have been made, but we’ll keep you updated.


Chief Keef decides to upload four new projects to his YouTube channel.

With Chief Keef’s new-found freedom, all rules are going out the window. The rapper has been dropping a lot of leaks lately, but he’s topped all of those by uploading four new mixtapes to his YouTube today.

There aren’t any tracklists or credits listed, so it’ll be a bit of a guessing game when you listen. We’ll update you once/if tracklists arrive. For now, we’ve got a stream of a Crashing Computers (50-minute long mixtape), UFOverload2(also a 50-minute mixtape), B4 Da EP (26-minute EP) and finally, Mansion Musick (45 minutes worth of music).

If they become available for download, you’ll be able to grab them in our mixtape section.

Suge Knight and Katt Williams have been arrested on robbery charges that stem from an incident with a female photographer.

Suge Knight hasn’t been having a great year. After recovering from a bullet wound that left him hospitalized, Knight (along with comedian Katt Williams) has been accused of stealing a photographer’s camera. Both men were arrested on robbery charges, reports XXL.

According to the DA’s press release, “the two men are suspected of stealing the camera of an independent on Sept. 5 outside a studio in Beverly Hills.” Bail was set for Williams at $75,000 for Williams and one million for Suge, who has a prior conviction for assault with a deadly weapon.

If convicted, Williams faces seven years in custody, and Suge faces 30 to life in state prison.


The Toronto Raptors aren’t the only squad to have created a position in their organization for a rapper/super fan. Ted Leonsis, the owner of the Washington Wizards, has announced that Wale will serve as the teams ‘creative liaison,’ and his first job will be to perform during player intros during their home opener this Saturday.

What else does a ‘creative liaison do? Glad you were wondering…

Wale will also be aiding in social media promotions and merchandise designs for the Wizards throughout the 2014-15 season. The DC native seems happy about his new gig, although he doesn’t have a prestige title like ‘global ambassador’ which Drake has locked down in Toronto.

“I’m excited to start building as the creative liaison for the Washington Wizards,” said Wale. “As a D.C. native and lifelong Wizards fan, this is truly an exciting and organic relationship for me. We’ve got some exciting projects up our sleeve that will roll out throughout the season.”
