A woman in Louisiana has become the victim of a brutal racist attack. Sharmeka Moffitt, 20, was set on fire by a group of men likely belonging to the well known hate group, Sunday (Oct. 21), and has been left in critical condition due to her injures.
“Both of her arms, and they are third degree burns, down her chest and legs-one. Basically her arms are real bad,” said her mother Edna Moffitt.
Moffitt was admitted to the LSU Medical Center in Shreveport. According to police, she phoned 911 from Civitan Park, at around 8 p.m. on the night of the incident. According to her recount, three men in white hoodies doused her in flammable liquid before setting her on fire and fleeing the scene, police confirmed. She distinguished the flames using water from a faucet before police arrived at the scene.
“This is a horrific event for our community,” said Franklin Parish Kevin Cobb. “It makes everyone uneasy. It is our hope that everyone stands together at this time, and follow the information that is gathered, follow the facts, follow the evidence, and hopefully that will lead us to justice in this case.”
Police have yet to classify the attack as a hate crime, but the FBI has signed on to investigate the possibility of the incident being racially charged.
In addition to being set on fire, the letters “K-K-K” were written into her car above a racial slur.
As of Monday (Oct. 22) no arrests had been made in the case.
The feud between Mobb Deep members Havoc and Prodigy has become an on-going dispute. Along the way, Havoc accused Prodigy of snitching and said that he was hiding his homosexuality. There was even a rumor of the two being involved in a physical altercation and disses have been handed out. However, in a recent interview Prodigy declined to speak badly of Havoc, shouting him out and saying he feels good.
When the topic of Havoc came up, Prodigy refused to speak badly of his Mobb brother. Instead, he focused on what he’s been up to since being released from jail and even shouted Hav out.
“I’m getting a lot of work done. It feels good,” he explained in the interview with ThisIs50. “I’m independent. I feel I’m in a good place right now. I feel good. I’m just gonna continue doing that. Shout out to Havoc too. Shout out to Hav. That’s my dog.”
Later in the interview, Prodigy did say that some “people deserve to get shot.”
“Some people just need that. Some people deserve to get shot,” he said. “Some people deserve to get shot and die. Certain people just deserve the worst shit to happen to them.”
However, when asked if he was talking about Havoc, he said that he wasn’t, adding, “Nah. Hav don’t deserve that.”
Prodigy was also asked if he has ever participated in homosexual activity. When asked, he replied, “Hell fuckin’ no. Hell no.”
It looks like with every new job comes new financial woes for “106 & Park” host Bow Wow. The bank that repossessed his Lamborghini is suing the rapper/host for the cost of repossession and auction. You most certainly read that correctly.
SunTrust Bank in Georgia is suing Bow Wow alleging he took out a business loan for $300,165. Bow Wow, whose real name is Shad Moss, agreed to fork over $4,730 a month for 84 months to wipe out the loan. According to bank records, the Cash Money artist began defaulting on payments and the bank repossessed the luxury sports car and auctioned it off for $161, 000. As if that weren’t enough, the bank added $25,000 onto Bow Wow’s bill calling it “repossession expenses.” In total, Mr. 106 still owes SunTrust Bank $21,371.
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened to the “Like You” rhymer. it was reported a while back Bo Wow was ducking and dodging a collection agency who wanted their $283,000. That debt stems from a Ferrari he stop making payments on.
People close to the rapper say all of Bow Wow’s financial issues are due to the crappy ex-managers he had. Now that he’s fired all of the shady business people around him and is starting fresh. He is also working with his new team to settle all debts he’s incurred.
The controversial Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation Of Islam, toured New York City yesterday (September 25th), making various stops in the Bronx, Harlem, Queens and Brooklyn, as well as Newark, NJ. Farrakhan visited housing projects and spoke to onlookers about stemming gun violence in inner-city communities, much like he’s done in his Chicago homebase, which has been plagued by shootings.
The theme of the Minister’s Harlem speech was self-sufficiency and self-empowerment in putting a stop to the violence. “You are looking for change to come but change will not come out of the sky,” Farrakhan told a crowd of 300, reports DNAInfo, in front of the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office building on 125th St.
“We are holding ourselves back. You can’t keep blaming the white man,” Farrakhan also reportedly said.
During Farrakhan’s tour of Harlem, he was accompanied by community leaders, activists and clergy including, Iesha Sekou of Street Corner Resources, Rev. Vernon Williams of the Harlem Clergy Community Leaders Coalition and Perfect Peace Ministries and Rev. Al Taylor of Man Up in Harlem.
It was a homecoming of sorts for Farrakhan, who was once head of Mosque No. 7 in Harlem, succeeding the late Malcolm X.
T.I. took a visit to BET’s 106 And Park yesterday. He’s laid relatively low since he’s been working on his new album Troubleman, and honestly, probably been trying to stay out of trouble as well. In this interview, T.I. talks to Rocsi about coming full circle since the last BET Hip-Hop Awards where he famously got knocked for having enough weapons to service a small army.
“I am proud to say that this year on the same day of the BET Hip-Hop Awards, I will close that chapter and be off probation on September 29th,” T.I. told the audience at BET. T.I. also announced another release date for his oft-delayed comeback album, Troubleman, which is now slated for December 18th. It will be interesting to see how T.I. being off probation will affect his music. Hit the jump to check out the video.
Tameka Raymond has filed paperwork to retry the custody case that gave her ex-husband, Usher, primary custody of their two sons. Tameka has accused Usher of buying the ruling in his favor, citing that his lawyers previously raised money for the judge presiding over the case.
Usher’s legal counsel was responsible for bringing in a large chunk of money for the judge’s 2008 re-election campaign.
The mother of five also feels that there was no evidence proving that she was unfit to care for the young boys. She has however called out Usher’s “past, current, and future inability” to take care of the children.
Tameka lost one of her older sons, 11-year-old Kile Glover, in July following a waterskiing accident, but fought to keep her custody hearing on schedule despite opposition from Usher.
With the battle somewhat behind him, Usher has returned back to his professional duties, performing at the iTunes Festival in London Saturday (Sept. 1).
“Man it’s just like shut-up and entertain, we don’t care about the personal stuff,” he joked of his fan’s thoughts on his very public relationship issues.
The 33-year-old has received support from his fans via Twitter, which likely helped him deal with the fight over his sons, that found him posting a photo of himself on Facebook looking somber and possibly crying. Tameka later blasted the picture as doctoring his true emotions, to garner public sympathy.
A judge has yet to rule on Tameka’s motion.
Michael Clarke Duncan, the actor most widely known for his role in The Green Mile has died, he was 54.
Duncan suffered cardiac arrest in July, but appeared to be on the mend. His fiancee, Apprentice star Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, broke the news to the Associated Press Monday (Sept. 3), revealing that he passed away earlier in the morning.
Stallworth is credited with saving Duncan’s life by her quick reaction to the medical scare two months ago. They were resting at home when he had the emergency, resulting in him being taken to a local hospital where he was later in listed in stable condition. She remained by his side throughout the ordeal.Doctors kept Duncan in the hospital to run extra tests on his heart.
The couple met at a Whole Food’s store in 2010, and have been close ever since.
Aside from appearing in the 1999 film alongside Oscar winner Tom Hanks, Duncan also appeared in films like The Scorpian King, and Sin City.
Fans were shocked when news broke that Beanie Sigel – already preparing to serve a two-year sentence for tax evasion – was arrested on drug charges earlier today. Now, in an exclusive from XXL, it looks like the Philadelphia emcee will begin serving his sentence earlier than anticipated.
The Broad Street Bully was supposed to begin serving his two-year bid on September 12, but now, after the recent arrest, authorities took him into custody today instead. Although the rapper’s lawyer Fortunato N. Perri did not indicate whether his client would serve any extra time for the arrest, he did say that he needs to review the specific nature of the arrest before moving forward with any kind of legal action.
“At this point, the Federal authorities will take him into custody and he’ll begin serving the sentence that he was going to start on September 12 anyway,” said Beans’ lawyer. “He had bail set on the new charges, but the Federal authorities have issued a detainer—a warrant, essentially—that will transfer him to Federal custody and he’ll start serving his sentence…we’re still reviewing the allegations and the circumstances of the arrest. I don’t don’t know a whole lot about the specifics at this point. We’re still reviewing specifics.”
As mentioned earlier, Sigel was arrested for possession of a bottle of codeine with the label scratched off and a bag prescription pills. A gun was also found the center dashboard of the vehicle in which Sigel had been riding.
