After months of anticipation, Drake has dropped his 4th studio album entitled Views. The Canadian rapper has been teasing fans and music connoisseurs for quite some time about the album’s official title and release date.

 

Several weeks prior to the album’s release, Drake introduced fans to two singles from the album. The single entitled “Pop Style”, featuring Kanye West and Jay-Z, serves an eerie melody underlining the strong lyrical prowess of Jay-Z and Kanye who are rightfully credited on the song as “the throne.” While the second single “One Dance” featuring Wiz Kid provides the perfect afro-punk melody for approaching summer. These distinct singles left fans eager to lay ear to the album and the wait is finally over!

Birdman’s recent rant on power 105.1’s morning show, The Breakfast Clubl, has generated countless memes and comedic reenactments while establishing the ultimate comeback for the summer. The popularity of the phrase “put some respek on my name” has thrust Birdman back into the spotlight while ruffling feathers, and creating division among those who agreed with the rapper’s approach and those who were left confused and amused.

With the undeniable power of social media and internet popularity, the question isn’t whether or not one agrees with Birdman’s decision to “pull up” on the Breakfast club, but rather whether Birdman will be able to capitalize on this recent controversy and turn “respek” into album sales.

Welcome to Eastchester Gardens, home to some of the Bronx’s nefarious criminals and the streets are talking, or at least they will be now that the NYPD is on the move and are taking everyone that’s guilty as prisoners! According to NY1 members of the 2Fly and BMB  (Big Money Bosses) gangs were arrested and will be indicted on various charges.

Around 2 a.m. today in the Bronx, in what’s being speculated as the LARGEST gang take-down in New York City’s history, in a collaborative effort, the NYPD’s Bronx Gang Squad, U.S. Homeland Security, the DEA and ATF arrested 120 alleged rival gang members and their affiliates at multiple New York City Housing Authority developments in the borough, including the Eastchester Gardens Houses. Prosecutors say it is the most people indicted at once in New York City history.

The charges included but were not limited to, Illegal use of firearms, narcotics, drug trafficking in school districts, conspiracy and racketeering.Their arraignment is scheduled to take place in the Federal District Court in Manhattan. Since 2007, officials said the turf war between the two groups has led to shootings, stabbings, slashings, beatings and robberies.

According to the indictment, leaders of BMB referred to themselves as Big Suits, and had subcategories signifying rank, such as Burberry Suits, Louis Suits, Gucci Suits, Ferragamo Suits, and Sean John Suits.The indictments also identified the suspects by theatrical aliases ranging from “Money Making Kenny”, “Broadway”  “Mark the Gritty Shark” and “Wayne Brady”!

2Fly YGz, a.k.a 2Fly, operated around the Eastchester Gardens public housing project in the Bronx and in the vicinity of Gun Hill Road, much of their crimes were committed against rival gangs specifically BMB and Slut Gang who’s territorial claim was in the White Plains Road and Boston Road areas.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara said members of the 2Fly and BMB gangs were also connected to several homicides including the the murder of 92-year-old Sadie Mitchell who was struck and killed by a stray bullet in 2009 whiles in her Williamsbridge apartment,the 2014 shooting death of Keshon Potterfield on 232nd street, stabbing deaths of Alexander Walters, 17 in 2012 and 15 year old Jeffrey Delmore near East Gun Hill Road; Donville Simpson, also 17, shot to death in 2013.

120 arrested in massive NYC gang sweep

“We bring these charges so that all New Yorkers, including those in public housing can live their lives as they deserve; Free of drugs, free of guns, and free of gang violence,” the U.S. Attorney said.

“These gang members do not belong on our streets, instead they belong exactly where they’re going, in federal prison for many years where they won’t be surrounded by their buddies, they won’t be close to their families, and they’ll no longer be free to terrorize the neighborhoods in which they grew up,” Bratton added.

Angel Melendez, head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations claimed that between the two gangs 1,800 shots had been fired among them and was responsible for the deaths of 39 people.

“Those arrested today allegedly used violence and fear to intimidate people who live within and around the Eastchester Gardens public housing,” said Angel Melendez, head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations.

It was a sigh of relief and a happy day for residents of Eastchester Gardens who praised the surprise action of the Law enforcers.

“Finally we’re going to be able to sit outside with our children and grandchildren without having to worry,” said Donna Fischer, 61. “We’re getting our development back from these criminals.”

Beyonce & JayZ

Two years ago it didn’t look like Beyoncé and Jay Z were going to make it to their next wedding anniversary. Their marriage was at breaking point and they were barely talking. The couple was forced to make a choice: save the relationship or live separate lives.

“They had been having problems for years,” reveals a source close to the couple. “There was a constant commitment issue between them and in the end they were barely speaking. Beyoncé didn’t fully trust Jay and it was hard for her to get past that.”

And so began an intense period of reflection for the couple, continues the insider. “They went to a lot of counseling and have been working on their issues ever since. They had help to get them through it.”

The line that left most onlookers wanting to know more was in the song “Sorry” that ended with, “he better call Becky with the good hair.” Who is Becky you might ask?

The Beyhive has no chill. Repellent anyone?

She’s till #trending and people are still sipping on that #lemonade, however the real question that everybody wants to know and that has the world in a buzz is, who’s the “becky with the good hair?”

If you haven’t watched the HBO lemonade special as yet, nor have you hypnotically subscribed to Tidal to listen to the album of the same title, then you must live under a rock or maybe you’re becky!!!!

The internet has been buzzing since Saturday with suspicion ever since bey dropped this line “He better call Becky with the good hair” that cheeky and direct line she spits at the end of the song “Sorry” made Twitter, instagram and the internet on the whole crazy with the Becky memes, quips, anectotes and jokes, but that’s only the normal people that didn’t take the line too serious, the beyhive on the other hand did what most of these stans, i mean fans tend to do and started bullying all the usual suspects and even some unsuspecting ones, but with the beyhive the only untouchable person on the planet is Queen Bey herself and maybe Obama!

the witch hunt list

Rachel Roy

Rita Ora

If there is one loyal group of fans on this planet it is the “beyhive” and if you cant afford the most toxic insect repellent, then i suggest you jump int a body of water, everybody knows bees cant get wet! The beyhive will come for you if you say even the slightest thing deemed negative of miss yonce’ just ask Kid rock, he got out the insect repellent and still go stung! Rachel Roy was no exception as a matter of fact no one on the witch hunt list was!

Rachel Roy

Y’all all remember the infamous Elevator fight where Solange went H A M on Jay’z for allegedly flirting with Roy at the Met Gala and Roy has since denied those allegations, however that didn’t stop the beyhive from going in on her once “Sorry” dropped,but Roy fueled the speculation by posting this on her Instagram which has since been deleted. The ‘hive wasted no time in letting her know how they truly felt.

 

INSTA

 

Rita Ora

The “Body on me” singer was not exempt from the sting. Last year was a crazy year for Ora who had several touchy moments with Bey’s husband, enough to have gotten her stung from the hive for hugging him at the Met Gala Ball and for being rumored to have hooked up with Jay after she was signed to RocNation, but Rita has always denied those rumors, but this was not why the hive was attacking her now it was because she posted this pic on her instagram.  rita-ora-lemonade

The hive had it all wrong though, because this picture was posted days before the world had heard about lemonade. to add insult to injury, ora was seen on the scene wearing the same Givenchy dress Bey wore in the documentary! I think she should have consulted with the beyhive before making this very “smart” decsion.

Ora has since responded to the rumors saying ‘I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumors are false,’ she tweeted I have the utmost respect for Beyonce.

One thing is for sure the Beyhive may not be the best source for factual information,but they are surely loyal! So for the sake of false accusations and the entire Hollywood industry becoming extinct, dying from bee stings, will the real “Becky with the good hair” please stand up!
