CHICAGO (CBS) — A community activist who was allowed to see videos from the fatal police shooting of Paul O’Neal before they were made public claimed they show an officer stomping the teen’s lifeless body after he was shot in the back.

Jedidiah Brown said he also heard police telling other officers to turn off their body cameras.

“I saw a police officer approach a lifeless O’Neal, face down to the ground, with three or four other officers over his body, screaming at him to put his hands behind his back, run up, stomp him in his back, and then grab his hands very violently, and put him in handcuffs, clearly lifeless,” he said.


CASH MARLEY of YCEMG found the perfect moment to drop his potent new single, “GET IT IN”, which is sure to be crowned the South’s HOTTEST new anthem. Marley’s banger introduces us all to new dimensions of dope Hip hop and will catapult him further into super stardom. The influential hip-hop rapper/producer’s music has two distinct sides: a uniformly strong rap side and a street side that is just as engaging and distinctive. When asked about what makes him tick, Cash Marley states, “I just wanna tell my story and help a ‪#‎hustla‬ get thru a day.”

Rozay added that he plans to release a new album before the end of 2016. ” (Pitchfork)


I’m hoping President Obama can establish an independent office of prosecutors to investigate police misconduct – it will eliminate the bad incentives that result in so many of these killers never being punished. Without consequences for the bad actors, these murders won’t end.


MIAMI — The text of Dwyane Wade’s letter to Miami, released Wednesday night to The Associated Press:


In the Nation of Hip Hop, iron sharpens iron, and when top Miami-Dade and Broward County independent artists came together last Saturday night in a dramatic, intense, roller coaster of a rap battle, one man reigned supreme, BENTLEY COOP.

I grabbed pictures, videos, and clippings from my Facebook family and friends to Honor a Musical Genius who I loved dearly…PRINCE ROGERS NELSON. Prince’s song “Adore You” in a way saved my life because everytime I became depressed as a kid, this was the song I played to lift my spirits high enough to face another day. Prince invented the Minneapolis sound and took on the music industry in his fight for creative freedom. At 57, he died way too f*cking young, found unresponsive in an elevator in Paisley Park studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. I’m taking this loss very hard. Prince was the very embodiment of Music.
