BMF Boss Big Meech Has Words Of Wisdom For Rapper Meek Mill

I normally don’t entertain Hip Hop social media beef, but every now and then I step outside my comfort zone. What the hay –right? You only live once.

At any rate, rappers The Game and Meek Mill are currently beefing. The Game insists that Meek Mill ‘snitched’ on him about a robbery that took place of pop singer Sean Kingston’s jewels at a concert some time back. [Click Here] to catch up on the backstory.

The beef has now spilled over into social media — and the underworld apparently, with Big Meech reaching out to Meek Mill from prison via a virtual kite. 

Rappers Meek Mill (R) and The Game (L)


Via Bossip: 

Game surprised just about everybody after the release of his “92 Bars” diss to Meek Mill. Meek has been something of a target after (depending on who you talk to) losing the rap battle against Drake. With Meek and Game being street rappers there’s a chance things could get ugly, which is probably why Big Meech decided to reach out. 


Big Meech, former leader of the notorious Black Mafia Gang, allegedly reached out to Meek to dole out some words of wisdom. Here’s what he had to say:

“I was trying to holler at you for a min[ute] so hopefully I can say something to you that means something before them dudes out there force your hand and make you crash and lose everything out there you work[ed] hard to get,” Meech wrote. “Wanna see you on top successful where you belong not in prison over avoidable dumb shit,” he added.

Shoutout to Big Meech for stepping in ‘big homie’ style to try to squash the unnecessary beef. We need more big homies out there to step in when needed because today’s kids think nonsense is the way to go. (Side note:) I wonder why he reached out to Meek Mill and not both? 

In any case, these rappers have got to stop all this quarreling and put out some hot music worth listening to. The rap game is now a shell of its former self. Social media thugging has become the new way of promoting mixtapes and airing out grievances, and I have to admit, I’m not a fan. I’m from the days where –if you had a problem you would pick up the phone, or as my little brother says, “pull up.” 

Meek Mill also had a message for Game

“U wanna fight? Next morning a diss raps…… Then the pre-order links. THE JIG IS UP YALL GUYS REAL RAPPERS!”

Feds Raid ‘Mob Daughter’ Victoria Gotti’s Long Island Mansion & Queens Auto Store Run By Her Sons


According to The Daily Mail — Victoria Gotti, daughter of Gambino Family crime boss John Gotti and star of reality TV show ‘Growing Up Gotti,’ had her home raided by federal agents Wednesday.

Her sprawling mansion in Old Westbury, Long Island, was visited by IRS agents executing a search warrant obtained from Brooklyn US Attorney’s office.

At the same time, just after dawn, the Queens auto parts store run by her sons was also raided, dnainfo reported.

Why the Gotti mansion – featured heavily in the show – and the parts shop, located on Liberty Avenue near Sutphin Boulevard in Jamaica, were raided isn’t yet known.

The parts shop used to belong to Gotti’s ex-husband, Carmine Agnello, but he gave it up after serving nine years in prison on racketeering charges, separating from Victoria and moving to Cleveland.

The shop is now run by their three sons, Carmine, John and Frank Gotti Agnello.
All three sons, and their mom, were featured in ‘Growing Up Gotti,’ which ran from 2004-2007 on A&E.

As well as her TV appearances, Victoria Gotti also wrote a series of thriller novels in the 2000s.

Victoria Gotti dumped Agnello 12 years ago after he was exposed for cheating on her with his Queens secretary – and was also convicted of racketeering.

Jamaican Gangster Dudus Coke’s Ex-Lieutenant Acquitted

Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke

According to Jamaica Observer– Harry McLeod, the reputed ‘ex-lieutenant’ of former Tivoli Gardens don Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, was yesterday acquitted of several criminal charges as the prosecution was unable to mount a case against him.
The 46 year-old, otherwise called Harry Dog, was acquitted of charges of larceny, receiving a stolen motor vehicle, and forgery when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court.McLeod, who was represented by Peter Champagnie and Kemar Robinson, was acquitted after the prosecution said it was unable to make out a case against him, prompting the court to order the return of his vehicle.

Charges against McLeod came after the vehicle was allegedly found in Tivoli Gardens with 4,000 rounds of ammunition in it during the May 2010 operation to apprehend Coke, who was wanted in the United States on drugs and gunrunning charges. The vehicle, with McLeod’s documents, was allegedly found in front of Coke’s Presidential Click office.

This acquittal comes two years after McLeod was freed of ammunition charges after 42 rounds of ammunition were allegedly found in his Oxford Road, New Kingston apartment when he was held in 2011.

He was arrested after the police listed him as a “major person of interest” in relation to crimes committed in the Kingston Western Police Division.

Chicago aka “Chi-Raq” Hits 500th Homicide Of 2016 Over Labor Day Weekend

Chicago’s 500th homicide of the year happened over Labor Day weekend, according to the Chicago Tribune.

That number carries a lot of weight for the city — not just in quantity, but in meaning: 2016 is now the deadliest year in two decades.

CHICAGO VS. OTHER CITIES

When you compare Chicago’s homicide rate to that of other big cities in the country — New York and Los Angeles, for example — it tops the list.

But Chicago is not the homicide capital of the United States.

New Orleans, St. Louis, Detroit, Baltimore and Newark all have higher rates when you drill down the data per capita.

However, this doesn’t tell the entire story of Chicago’s bloodshed. There’s another statistic that points to a disturbing trend the city is facing: a surge.

WHAT 500 MEANS

In the early 2000s, the homicide rate in Chicago held steady, but it began an upward tick in 2014 and has been increasing ever since.

But 2016 is the deadliest year in two decades when it comes to homicide rates.

Chicago hit 500 homicides before the end of the summer. In 2015, the city had 480 homicides total.

The day-to-day breakdown of those figures is alarming. For example, there were 12 murders on Father’s Day weekend alone. The youngest victim was just 16.

THE GUN PROBLEM

A lot of the homicides in Chicago are gun-related. There are nearly 82 shootings per week. In just one weekend in August, there were eight gun-related homicides and 64 non-fatal shootings.

Chicago has strict gun laws, which is why many gun rights advocates point to it as evidence that tighter regulation doesn’t equal less crime. But Chicago’s gun violence problem is more complicated. Sixty percent of the guns used in shootings were purchased out of state.

Illinois governor Bruce Rauner recently signed a new gun control law that imposes harsher penalties on those who bring in guns from out of state to sell and do not have gun-owner ID cards.

WHO’S TO BLAME?

There’s a deeply rooted distrust of Chicago’s police force.

The city’s police department has been under review for months in the wake of high-profile officer-involved shootings, including that of Laquan McDonald.

That independent task force has accused the police of institutional racism, saying they “have no regard for the sanctity of life when it comes to people of color.”

But the other side of this battle is the street crime in Chicago, which has led to the killing of innocent bystanders and kept residents shut inside their homes out of fear.

Englewood resident Stephanie Armas, 43, said she taught her kids from a very young age what to do when they hear gunshots.

“If you live in a society where (your children) have to learn to duck and dodge bullets, you have to teach them how to duck a dodge bullets,” Armas said on September 1. “That’s all you can do.”

Some Chicagoans partly blame the violence on economic struggles and lack of jobs. However, Chicago’s unemployment rate fell from 6.1% in 2015 to 5.5% in 2016.

THE PEOPLE

We often point to Chicago’s alarming homicide numbers, but the real tragedy in this city are the victims and the families left behind.

They are the ones who face this violence every day, the ones who stand over gravestones, the ones who’ve lost hundreds of sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers.
