Chuck Taylor shares that he’s been thinking about making moves to a different label.

Game has revealed that he is considering signing with Cash Money Records after his Interscope Records contract is fulfilled. With only one more album left on the plate following the August 23rd release of R.E.D. Album, the Compton, California native explains that he plans on abandoning Interscope and signing with the house that Birdman and Slim built.

“We been playing with the idea of going over to Cash Money or trying to marry that and Black Wall Street,” he told XXLMag.com. “So, we’ll figure it out before the end of the day. I definitely think that’s where I’ll probably end up. Cause they winning, they want to win and I been winning and want to continue to win.”

Game, who explained that his relationship with Birdman dates back to before he dropped his debut The Documentary, has collaborated with Cash Money’s Lil Wayne several times throughout his career. On an unreleased track from R.E.D. Album titled “All I Know,” Chuck Taylor speaks on the label proposal.

Man Says Lil Boosie Paid Him $15G’s To Kill Rapper Nussie

90wqwl585x320

Prosecutors have accused rapper Lil Boosie of paying $15,000 to have rival rapper Christopher “Nussie” Jackson murdered.

Prosecutors played a videotaped statement from Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding in court this week.

Louding confessed to detectives that Lil Boosie wanted Nussie killed, after the rapper was allegedly disrespectful to one of Lil Boosie’s associates during an altercation.

According to The Advocate, Lil Boosie hired Louding and another associated named Michael “Ghost” Judson to murder Nussie, as well as another man named Terry Boyd.

Only Michael Louding is on trial for the murder of Christopher “Nussie” Jackson, because Judson is dead.

Louding’s trial for murdering Nussie is just the start, as he has been charged with five other murders between 2009 and 2010.

Rapper Lil Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, is also charged with first-degree murder in one of the killings.

Prosecutors claim to have evidence that Lil Boosie hired Louding to shoot a man named Terry Boyd in October of 2009.

Lil Boosie, 28, was not charged in the death of Christopher “Nussie” Jackson, because he did not have direct contact with Michael Louding prior to Nussie’s murder.

Earlier this week, Lil Boosie was accused of attempting to smuggle drugs into a second state prison in Louisiana.

The rapper was indicted for trying to smuggle codeine into Angola State Prison, as well as the Dixon Correctional Institute at Jackson, where he was previously incarcerated, while serving a 10-year sentence for possession of marijuana.

Prosecutors are still debating if they are going to seek the death penalty against Lil Boosie.

Lil Boosie Charged With Smuggling Drugs Into Prison

Maybe you’ve only heard of Lil Boosie in passing, or perhaps you’ve never heard of him at all. His songs have never earned regular local radio play, and his influence west of the Rockies is usually relegated to street rap diehards and those who read their RSS feed intravenously.

But in the South, his influence is omnipresent, crossing racial and class divides. He’s a cult figure with a mass following, a high-top faded and ferocious performer perennially enduring some sort of struggle (whether it’s women, diabetes or triumphing over illegal downloading to buy a candy-painted car).

From his first days as a member of C-Loc’s Concentration Camp clique to being promoted as the next Trill star by Pimp C, to his classic mixtapes, to a trio of solo albums released on Asylum Records, Boosie has earned a reputation as one of the rawest rappers in the South, a region known for unfiltered flamboyant personas.

Alas, it’s also a region known for the frequency with which its most popular artists are incarcerated. Over the last few years, T.I., Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, Mystikal and Lil Boosie have been incarcerated for various indiscretions. Yet Boosie’s charges trump them all.

While it’s dificult to parse his current legal woes, at the moment he is facing charges ranging from ordering the murder of rivals (a charge that could get him the death penalty) to various conspiracy charges to distribute and smuggle narcotics into a federal penitiary. And on Monday, he was indicted on charges of trying to smuggle codeine into a second state prison. The indictment comes from a May 25 charge that Boosie and two local men had been attempting to smuggle in the banned substance. If convicted, it could lead to two to four years being tacked onto Boosie’s prison time.

Ignoring speculation about his guilt or innocence, it’s sad to watch one of the most singular voices of his generation get shut down. With his sinister amphibian croak, Boosie rapped about many of the same tropes as his peers, but he always conveyed greater anguish, sincerity and unfiltered passion. He created music to triumph over adversity, which resonated with anyone going through any sort of woe. He also stole the show on “Wipe Me Down,” which remains one of the funnest songs of all time.

Recently, a bootleg mixtape compilation of his most recent work has cropped up. Downloading it is recommended. Of local interest is “California,” a paean to the streets of L.A. and its most famous cash crop.

DMX Released From Prison

Rap star DMX has been released from an Arizona state prison after serving an extra week behind bars for failing a drug test while incarcerated.

Arizona Department of Corrections spokesman Bill Lamoreaux says family members were at the facility in Yuma to pick up the multi-platinum selling recording artist Tuesday.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was given a year in prison in December after his probation was revoked for failing to submit to drug testing and driving on a suspended license.

The 40-year-old Simmons was credited with 117 days he had already served.

Simmons had been earning 20 cents an hour as a porter.

Foxy Brown Suing New York City For $100 Millon

A couple days after having a restraining order violation charge dropped against her, Foxy Brown is now seeking legal retribution of her own.

The restraining order was originally filed due to an earlier charge, initiated by Arlene Raymond, Foxy Brown’s neighbor, in 2007. Brown allegedly threw and hit Ms. Raymond with a Blackberry. The artist was arrested and released on $50,000 bail.

Now, the plaintiff, Raymond, claims Brown became very agitated towards her for staring in her direction. Brown proceeded to walk up to her and begin yelling. Ms. Raymond then claims that Brown “bent over and thrust her buttocks, and said, ‘kiss my ass’”. Brown’s manager on the other hand claims Brown was making her way to her car, when the neighbor initiated an altercation.

Regardless of what happened, the ‘mooning’ case was later dismissed when Ms. Raymond refused to testify. On July 12th, Justice John Walsh cleared Foxy Brown of the misdemeanor charge of violating an order of protection.

The legal battle may now switch sides, this time with Brown in the plaintiff’s seat. Her lawyer, Salvatore Strazullo, told the New York Post that his client, Brown, plans to sue the ADA, Assistant District Attorney’s office, for $100 million in damages.

Strazullo said the initial charges were “malicious”, and the ADA should never have gone after his client, Brown, in the first place. “Do we want our tax dollars going for this?” Strazullo commented.
