Chris Lighty Found Dead In His Apartment

According to the New York Daily News, Hip Hop mogul Chris Lighty was found dead in his apartment from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot to the head.
Lighty, 44 — a longtime manager of 50 Cent, Diddy, Ja Rule and Mariah Carey — was found dead inside his South Riverdale apartment about 11:30 a.m., police sources said.
It appeared he died from a bullet to his head, sources said. A gun was recovered next to his body.
Law enforcement sources said Lighty — who divorced his wife, Veronica, last year — may have been dealing with financial struggles, including owing about $5 million to the IRS.
Our condolences to the friends and family of Chris Lighty.

Beanie Sigel Arrested… Again

According to Philly’s local news, the Broadstreet Bully was found with $4,650 cash, a bottle of codeine w/ a scratched off label and several prescription pills wrapped in plastic bags.

Thedetroitzuu : what does this painting mean or represent?

Kid Tef : Basically it's the ying and yang theory. To me good and evil represents the balance in life in which you can learn from both. You have to go through hell to get to heaven. You can't win for losing. You don't truly know what it is to win unless you have loss. Lucifer was an angel at one point in time meaning that god created this being for a reason.

Thedetroitzuu : Thats very deep. I also see that it looks like a black Jesus is being depicted?

@RomeCee Jay Mastermind and Rome Cee - The Greatness
