TMZ reports that Suge Knight ran over and killed a man earlier today on a film set in Compton. After a fight broke out between Knight and two of his crew members, Knight got into his car and reversed, running over his friend Terry Carter, who emergency personnel were unable to resuscitate. Knight then apparently sped off. Two other men were also hit, and have been hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries. Knight was on the set of a film that features Game, Ice Cube, and Dr. Dre. Sources told TMZ that Knight took off because he feared for his safety due to his “frail health.” Last year, he was shot six times at a VMA pre-party.

Last year, Future performed at the fancy 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the tail-end of his European tour, and brought along his affiliate DJ Esco in his posse. As FADER found out, Esco ended up spending 56 days in a Dubai prison after he was arrested for marijuana possession when they arrived at the airport. “I wasn’t pissed that I was the one that got caught,” Esco told FADER. “I was more focused on how to get out then how I got in.” Here’s the gist of the story:

Over the weekend, rumors surfaced that Lil Wayne was considering suing Birdman for $8 million dollars for the delay of his next album, Tha Carter V. Well, the rumors are true, but he’s suing for a hell of a lot more — $51 million, to be precise. TMZ obtained a copy of the lawsuit, and it says that Cash Money violated Lil Wayne’s contract by withholding tens of millions of dollars and that, because Wayne hasn’t been paid the advance for his new album, he should be allowed to walk away from the label. But it doesn’t stop there: Wayne also wants the judge to declare him as the joint copyright holder for all Young Money recordings, which includes tracks from Drake and Nicki Minaj. Sources tell TMZ that Birdman can still put out Tha Carter V, but only if Wayne gets paid his promised $8 million advance, plus $2 million for the completion of the album. Looks like this is going to get messy…

Yeah, I’m a little unsure of that one. But how many tracks did they all work on together? I can’t imagine it would be more than one. I know Diplo & Sophie have been working a lot together though, so maybe his influence just rubbed off.

I assumed it was a boy because of the whole “prep school/brotherhood” aspect hinted at from the title, but who knows. Also gender is just a social construct etc etc
