Luxury watch Jacob Arabov just doesn’t miss. Back in 2008, Jacob known mostly as “Jacob the Jeweler” was sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Arabov, who was 43 at the time, was arrested in 2006 at his E. 57th St. jewelry store and charged with conspiring to launder about $270 million for the Detroit-based Black Mafia Family.

He was one of dozens arrested in a seven-year federal investigation. The feds also seized 1,100 pounds of cocaine and $19 million in cash.

Basically, Jacob Arabov knows a lot about Tony Montana.

“Hardcore” Album by Lil Kim Turns 25

LIL KIM: Hardcore (1996)

Lil Kim’s Hardcore album as well as this poster was legendary.

Hard to believe it’s been 25 WHOLE YEARS since this album dropped. It’s showing my age. Lil Kim is iconic. Her style, her swagg, her rhymes & delivery were like no other. Every teen age girl from the hood wanted to be Lil Kim the Queen Bee! She was so dope & I can’t imagine hip hop with out her. We love you Kim!

Criminal Trail of Former “Empire” Actor Jesse Smollet Set to Begin Today

Wow! I didn’t even know he was facing a criminal trial for this. Smh imagine setting yourself up then catching a charge for setting yourself up.


Did anybody ever figure out why he did this? What in the heck was the ultimate purpose of all of this? What was the end game?

Insider — The criminal trial of actor Jussie Smollett, who is accused of staging a hate crime against himself, is set to begin Monday after years of delays.

In January 2019, Smollett reported to Chicago police that he had been attacked by two men wearing ski masks while walking home from a Subway sandwich shop around 2 a.m., claiming they shouted racist and homophobic slurs and referenced former President Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again.” He also said the men placed a noose around his neck.

At the time of the attack, Smollett, who is Black and openly gay, was starring on the TV show “Empire,” which filmed in Chicago.

Shortly after the attack, which was first investigated as a hate crime, police and prosecutors said they believed Smollett himself had staged it. He was accused of making a false report to police and was charged with felony disorderly conduct.
