Nelly Accuser Makes Interesting Request to Judge

The woman who accused Nelly of raping her has gone to court and asked a judge to order him not to do to other women what she says he did to her. Monique Greene filed new legal docs in her lawsuit against the rapper, in which she is asking for an injunction against both Nelly and…his penis.

Greene describes in detail Nelly’s MO in what she says is a plot to sexually assault women. She says he seeks out “beautiful women of color” at his concerts, typically “with beautiful faces and curvy figures.” She says a member of his entourage will invite the women and friends backstage. She says Nelly “is particularly attracted to women who were resistant.”

She says at some point Nelly will begin masturbating in front of the women “with the expectation that presenting himself would entitle him to sexual gratification and that the women were drawn to and could not resist his penis.” She says if a woman resists he “sexually accosts and/or assaults her” and this includes ejaculating on the woman’s body.

Chuuwee & Khalisol – Tiger Woods (Video)

Chuuwee gears up yet for another album release in his Dystopia series. Setting fans up for part 003, Chuuwee teams up with New Mexico rhymesmith and producer Khalisol, who produced the entire album. The music video for the song Tiger Woods is the first leak from the album. The album is called PassOver because that’s the next holiday after Sabbath (released as an intermission album in November 2017). However in the storyline of the series, this is the breaking point. This is that moment when you feel as things can’t get worse and you’re just praying for them to “pass over.” Unfortunately in this series things only get worse.

Growlz – Sauce Boss + Rude Machine

CR135 - GROWLZ SAUCE MACHINE-FINAL

Circus Records continue their first round of releases for 2018 with a brand new 2-track single from the California-based Growlz. With his debut single on Circus “Gang of Killerz” seeing support from titans within the scene such as Zeds Dead, Excision, Datsik, Dirtyphonics, Mayhem, Crissy Criss, Slum Dogz, Reid Speed and Cutline amongst many more, there’s evidently big things in store for the young producer, and this release is no exception.

The A-side, entitled “Sauce Boss” is a ruthless break-laden monster of a tune, making use of some of the most uniquely original sounds in recent memory in a perfectly complex arrangement, while the second half–the aptly-titled “Rude Machine” – makes use of festival-hyping leads before making way for a guttural drop designed to both excite and destroy. There’s little doubt that these two tunes are going to be seeing a serious amount of airtime across the bass music circuit, and moreover we can only imagine that this is just the latest in a string of seriously heavyweight releases from Growlz throughout the next year.

DMX Seen Preaching In Airport Bar

Rapper DMX Arraigned In Court After Tax Evasion Charges

DMX is in rehab for substance abuse, but alcohol may not be one of those substance, after he was seen preaching … in a Chili’s bar. X was at the airport bar and grill Monday night in St. Louis when he started breaking down what The LAWD has done for him in times of need. He’d been in town for a concert with E-40, but obviously still felt like spreading the word before leaving town.

According to TMZ, X was buying everyone shots, and even a few for himself. His lawyer, Murray Richman, says he’s surprised because X is supposed to be traveling with his sober coach. If you don’t know, X has been given the green light to travel quite a bit as he completes his rehab, which include shows this week in NYC.

Teck-Zilla – Jetsoul Musique (Instrumentals)

jetsoul musique

Over the years, Nigerian-born, Montreal-based producer Teck-Zilla has amassed an impressive discography brimming with unique instrumental projects that detail his own personal experiences, and also showcasing his admiration of certain artists. And with Jetsoul Musique, the gifted beatsmith paints a sonic picture of the entire flight process, from boarding, to turbulence, to the oh-so-sweet feeling of reaching your destination.

The five tracks on Jetsoul Musique center on a more sublime-sounding Hip-Hop, though that’s not to say this is some vanilla, smooth-Jazz portrayal of Boom bap. There’s both classic and modern sounds permeating through these beats, be it the shape-shifting form of “Inflight Musique” or the outright slapper that is the second half of “Turbulence Musique.” There’s more peaceful moments, too, like on the absolutely serene opening cut “Takeoff Musique” and the R&B-tinged brass of “Landing Musique.”

Teck crafted these beats after feeling particularly inspired by his frequent travels, which often take him to Montreal, London, and Lagos. It’s on those long-haul trips that he began crafting the bones of Jetsoul Musique, which you should absolutely bump the next time you’re getting ready for a flight. If nothing else, these buttery instrumentals are sure to mellow you out.

As was reported, Dolph came under fire while shopping in Hollywood, where e was struck in the butt, but recovered just fine. When it comes to other rappers avoiding trouble, like Kodak Black, who just got sent back to jail, Dolph’s advice is simple. Duck and cover, and remember the bag.
