Dick Gregory, the pioneering satirist who transformed cool humor into a barbed force for civil rights in the 1960s, then veered from his craft for a life devoted to protest and fasting in the name of assorted social causes, health regimens and conspiracy theories, died Saturday in Washington.

YG is facing a serious lawsuit. According to a report by “Uproxx,” poet Henry Russell, otherwise known as Grimmis, is taking YG to court for unpaid royalties. Russell claims he’s never been paid for his poems used on the “My Krazy Life Tracks” “Who Do You Love” and “Bicken Back Being Bool.” The lawsuit alleges that YG promised to share the revenues of the songs with Russell but never did. Russell is suing YG, DJ Mustard, Universal Music Group and 400 Wayz for copyright infringement and fraud.
He is survived by 11 children, who came together for a joint tribute. After sharing individually, they spoke as one: “He will always be our king.” In one touching, emotional moment, the older children helped his youngest say goodbye.
