Teen Responsible For Murder Of Juvenile’s Daughter Sentenced


Posted: Tuesday, September 14, 2010

The teen responsible for the murder of Juvenile’s four year old daughter, Jelani, and her mother, Gwinnett County Sheriff’s deputy Joy Deleston, and 11-year-old sister, Micaiah, in 2008 was sentenced on Friday (September 10) to two consecutive life sentences.

Anthony Tyrone Terrell, then 17, murdered his mother and sisters, following an argument with his mom about a girl he had over the house without supervision. He shot Deleston twice with her service gun in front of Micaiah, who started to scream. He turned to the pre-teen and shot her several times, and then went upstairs to find Jelani, who he kissed before aiming the gun at her chest and shooting her twice.

“I never planned what happened that day,” said Terrell while reading from a prepared statement before sentencing. “My mom and I got into a disagreement and things just spiraled out of control.”

Adding, “That night my plan was to take my own life, but in the end I was unable to shoot myself.”

Juvenile was not present at the hearing and did not attend his daughter’s funeral back in 2008. At that time, a representative for the Louisiana-bred rapper said that he skipped the services in order to prevent the extra media attention that his presence would have brought.


Juvenile Arrested For Marijuana Possession

Posted: Friday – February 26, 2010

Former Cash Money Hot Boy Juvenile and his producer Leroy Edwards were arrested Thursday (February 25), for possession of marijuana.

According to reports, police responded to a call from a neighbor who reported that they smelled marijuana smoke coming from the rappers home.

When police arrived at the house, according to reports, they were not only greeted by Juve’s producer who had a small amount of marijuana “on his person,” but a published report police states that “the presence of marijuana was strong” enough that it gave “probable cause” to search the rapper’s home.

Upon their search, police discovered a small amount of marijuana in a kitchen drawer, which Juvenile stated belonged to him.

Authorities said Juvenile and Edwards were booked with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and both have posted bond.
With all of the issues surrounding rappers and drugs, it seems as if Dr. Drew is going to have to start a new season of celebrity rehab, aptly titled Hip-Hop Edition…SMH.


Birdman Gives Words Of Advice For Lil Wayne

Posted: Thursday – December 3, 2009

“It’s about him right now. I got to deal with a situation I’ve never had to deal with in my life. It ain’t cool with me, but we have to live through it.”

Cash Money seems to be one of the last major labels still around even with the absence of former popular members Mannie Fresh and Juvenile. With Lil Wayne facing a possible year sentence there are questions of the future of Young Money.

Birdman recently spoke with the Associated Press about his latest album Priceless and advice that he has for his son Lil Wayne before he serves his time.

“To keep doing what he loves – music. That’s the only thing we’ve got. You take that away from us, we really don’t need to live. Music, that’s the only thing that gets the stress off your mind to make you feel better. It’s how good it sounds after you’ve done it. The enjoyment of it.”

Birdman says there won’t be a drought of music from Wayne while he’s away. “Of course. I don’t know how many. It’s up to him. It’s his world. My son is his own boss. Whatever he wants to do, we’ll back him up.”

Birdman compared their label to other labels on success. “Now I don’t see any top labels. I look around and see all those people who did it before me. To me, the labels, I don’t see no company with constant success with a clique. At some point, there was a lot of people doing this. It used to be crowded. I see a lot of people who have don’t it, and now don’t see them.”

Mannie Fresh Launches New Label, Signs Distribution Deal

Posted: Sunday – September 13, 2009

Acclaimed producer Mannie Fresh will seek to take his label Chubby Boy Records to greater heights via a newly-inked distribution deal with Deep Entertainment.

The deal represents Fresh’s plan to solidify his talents as a Hip-Hop producer while showcasing his diversity in other genres of music.

As a label, Deep Entertainment has slowly been making a name for itself in Hip-Hop culture due to its successful distribution of various mixtapes.

Mannie Fresh’s first rumored project will be Return of the Ballin’, which will serve as a follow-up to his 2004 debut The Mind of Mannie Fresh.

Fresh was instrumental in the explosion of Southern Hip-Hop through his tenure as Cash Money Record’s in-house producer from 1993-2005.

In that span, the New Orleans native’s beats were a staple of hit albums from Juvenile (400 Degreez ), Lil Wayne (Tha Block It Hot, Tha Carter ), B.G. (Chopper City in the Ghetto ), The Hot Boys (Guerrilla Warfare ), and the Big Tymers (Hood Rich ).

Realizing that labels have to be forward-thinking and daring in their marketing due to the ever-evolving music climate, Deep Entertainment Public Relations Director Nicole Murray plans to make Fresh a part of their proposed “independent music revolution.”

Deep Entertainment is a rising star among independent labels,” explained Murray to AllHipHop.com in a statement.

“Boasting the ability to pair creative, outside-the-box distribution channels as well as the traditional methods of retail and digital release with a full set of in house services including marketing, radio promotions and publicity, Deep Entertainment is revolutionizing the way independent music is released and received by the market place.”

Fresh’s Return of the Ballin’ is currently set for an October release. Afterward, the label expects to debut new acts from Fresh’s Chubby Boy label.

At press time, it is unknown if Fresh has retained his previous label deal with Def Jam South.
