Rap Star Lil Kim Connects With Biggie Through a Medium

In today’s side eye news –self proclaimed Hollywood medium, Tyler Henry, claims to make contact with rap queen Lil’ Kim’s late soulmate –Biggie. 

For those living on Mars, Christopher ‘Notorious Big/Biggie’ Wallace was a Brooklyn born rapper who has consistently been ranked as one of the greatest and most influential rappers of all time. He also founded the group Junior M.A.F.I.A. in which Lil’ Kim became the breakout international rap star. During the time, Biggie and Kim were also carrying on a torrid love affair while Biggie was married to soul singer, Faith Evans. Kim always claimed Biggie as her own man, despite his nuptials to another woman.

Prior to his death, Biggie was heavily involved in the growing East Coast–West Coast hip hop feud with rapper Tupac Shakur and Death Row records. 

On March 9, 1997, Wallace was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. His shooter is still unknown.

Personally, I don’t know how to feel about mediums because I’ve never spoken to one, but I do think this guy was privy to the same information that WE ALL were about Kim & Big’s “situationship.” I mean I didn’t feel like he stated any facts that we didn’t already know but whatever. Let the guy work.

Check out the clip, what do you think? Are mediums real or real phony?

Wife of Las Vegas sports handicapper, Frank Rosenthal, their life story was the focus of a novel, Casino, by author Nicholas Pileggi, and in the subsequent 1995 movie by the same name; her movie role was played by actress Sharon Stone. Born Geraldine “Geri” McGee, she met Anthony Spilotro, the best friend of Frank Rosenthal, at a gambling convention in Atlantic City, New Jersey, where she began an affair with him. She made her living as a “chip girl” (a good looking woman who hustled gamblers for a chip or two in exchange for temporary companionship) and as a part time topless dancer and occasional prostitute, hanging around the high rolling gamblers in the casinos, where she would move from gambler to gambler. Frank Rosenthal was a brilliant Chicago bookie and odds maker who made millions for the mafia, and was then sent to Las Vegas to recruit the casinos there for organized crime. Rosenthal brought with him his childhood friend and mafia muscleman, Anthony Spilotro, who introduced him to Geri, and soon Frank and Geri were a couple. Frank Rosenthal would soon make the Stardust into one of the leading sports gambling centers in Las Vegas , but on October 4, 1982, an attempt was made on his life by placing a bomb underneath his car. While the bombing attempt failed to kill him, it did bring government and media attention to Frank’s activities. The government quickly gathered sufficient evidence on him to tie him to organized crime, and with that information, the Nevada Gaming Commission ordered Rosenthal to remain out of casinos for the rest of his life. In the meantime, Frank had married Geri and they had two children. To compound Frank’s problems, Geri had become an alcoholic and drug abuser, and was engaging in numerous affairs, including resuming the one with Frank’s best friend Tony Spilotro. Their activities read like a Hollywood movie script, which it ironically became after their deaths. Shortly after Geri’s death, rumors spoke of Frank having her murdered, and he spent up to $50,000 to have an autopsy performed, in which the coroner ruled that she died from an accidental drug overdose of cocaine, valium and whiskey. In spite of her numerous affairs and other problems, she was considered a loving mother to her children. (bio by: Kit and Morgan Benson)

Book Review: Masking Evil by Carol Anne Davis

lauloulew

Occasionally, writers and publishing houses send me books to review. I’m a huge reader so any true crime books I can my hands on I devour. Masking Evil by Carol Anne Davis was definitely no exception.

What sets this book apart from the hundreds of true crime titles on the shelves at the moment is its format. The book covers an overview of 37 different cases of good men and women turned evil, from a charity worker who murdered his wives to a policewoman gone bad.

Davis writes almost as if she has first hand knowledge of the events of each crime, showing how thorough and detailed her research is. The snippets at the start of each chapter give an insight into what you can expect from each case, setting the scene and making this book incredibly hard to put down.

In every case, Davis does much more than just…

Georgia Church Car Jacker Arrested After Police Chase

Anyone who commits crimes on church grounds does not deserve a place to breathe in the free world. That’s just my personal opinion.

Lock these kind of people up away from the general population and toss the keys.


Channel 2 News (Atlanta):

The Alpharetta Police Department confirmed with Channel 2 Action News that a carjacking happened at a church Friday evening.

Police said Jason Taratoot, 31,  held the victim at gunpoint and stole a green Kia Soul at St. James Methodist Church.

An officer spotted the vehicle driving southbound on Georgia 400, and when Taratoot refused to stop, a short vehicle pursuit started.

The suspect attempted to run away, but was stopped by a police canine.

“Our investigation revealed the captured suspect was a wanted fugitive out of Cherokee County,” the department posted on its Facebook page.

The suspect faces numerous felony charges, including aggravated assault, theft of a motor vehicle and possession of a stolen firearm.

No one was hurt and the suspect is now in jail, according to officials.
