Balitmore Police Under Fire For The Death Of An Unarmed Suspect!

Freddie Gray was injured after a confrontation with Baltimore Police. The city's mayor and police commissioner are trying to calm the controversy by demanding an investigation into this. Gray died of his injuries. The Department of Justice is looking into this.

These are not isolated incidents. This is a growing situation in which men of color are being killed by police. The perception of mistrust continues to grow. The Black and Latino communities have a strong mistrust of law enforcement. In the wake of five high profile shootings, one could think that this is not just isolated incidents by rogue cops. It's a systematic thought.

Most in law enforcement believe that Black men, Latino men, worshiping Muslims and illegal immigrants are naturally born criminals.

The agitators of the junk food media are quick to judge perception of Black men as criminals or victims of societal ills.

The Department of Justice is already investigating allegations of police brutality in the Baltimore Metropolitan Police.

Police are doing damage control after four officers handcuffed a man who was severely injured.

See if it wasn't for them pesky camera phones, the law can lie and say that the suspect put up a fight with officers. The not so good officers could plant evidence on an unarmed suspect and the law will release statements to the junk food media to paint the suspect as a no good criminal. The agitators will turn it into a political fray and the keyboard warriors will

Freddie Gray, 25 according to the law was in an area that is known for drug activity.

Yada, yada, yada! I don't buy that excuse. Only a court order can tell a man not to be in an area.

Just because a cop sees you in a drug activity zone, doesn't mean they have the right to search you or apprehend you without probable cause. That means, a cop can't arrest you because you're exiting a house they're observing for alleged drug activity. If the officer stops and questions you, you have a right to remain silent and the only thing you are advocating is your name.

The young man who the law apprehended was a low level suspect. He was unarmed. But somehow, the officers had to restrain him. The man was injured at the neck (by a spinal fracture around his neck) and died over the weekend.

We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of Freddie Gray.

Gray died a week after he suffered a broken vertabra after being arrested near Gilmor Homes in Sandtown-Winchester.

Police have not given a cause for Gray's injuries or specified why he was arrested, citing an investigation into the incident. Officials are expected to look into any criminal conduct by Gray and whether criminal charges against officers are warranted.

As a family attorney raised questions about the circumstances surrounding Gray's death, his stepfather, Richard Shipley, said relatives were too distraught to talk.

"He's gone," Shipley said. "What else is there to say?"

The Baltimore Sun reports that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts demand an investigation to what happened. They are committed to providing the public with information about the circumstances of Gray's death.

"I understand the frustration of the community and I take very seriously my obligation of transparency," Rawlings-Blake said. "However we also have to balance that with our obligation to ensure a proper and thorough investigation is undertaken. Therefore we have to move forward in a responsible way to determine all the facts of this incident so that we can provide the community with answers."

More than 100 protesters have gathered for two days outside the Western District station, demanding answers about what happened to Gray.

William "Billy" Murphy Jr., a lawyer for Gray's family, contradicted a Police Department timeline of the arrest, which said medics were called to the Western District station 30 minutes after the police van carrying Gray left the scene. Murphy said he has information indicating Gray was at the police station for an hour before medics were called.

"What we know is that while in police custody for committing no crime — for which they had no justification for making the arrest except he was a black man running — his spine was virtually severed, 80 percent severed, in the neck area," Murphy said. He called Gray's injuries "catastrophic."

Murphy said Gray "lapsed into a coma, died, was resuscitated, stayed in a coma and on Monday, underwent extensive surgery at Shock Trauma. "He clung to life for seven days," he said.

The attorney also said that the city has a camera above where the arrest occurred and requested that the footage be released to the public.

"We believe the police are keeping the circumstances of Freddie's death secret until they develop a version of events that will absolve them of all responsibility," Murphy said. "However, his family and the citizens of Baltimore deserve to know the real truth; and we will not stop until we get justice for Freddie."

Four bicycle officers tried to stop Gray about 9 a.m. on April 12 in the 1600 block of W. North Ave. for an alleged violation that police have not disclosed. He ran, police said, and the officers caught him and restrained him on the ground while awaiting backup.
Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is the mayor of Baltimore. She promises a credible investigation.
According to the police timeline, he was conscious and speaking when he was loaded into a van to be taken to the district station. Medics were called to the station, and he was taken to an area hospital, police said.

From the video, I heard Freddie screaming in pain. I see officers drag him to the police van.

I see him with his head down in a way like his neck may have been broken. 

And you happen to notice picture of the cops lifting Freddie!  It looks like they got him from a brick fence

Did the cops slam him near the bricks and snap his neck?

Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said police have interviewed community members and some officers involved in the incident. He declined to provide more details, citing the need to make sure the investigation is not compromised.

Explanation of what prompted the arrest, remains "a bit vague," according to Rodriguez. He said that officers in a high-crime area with drug problems suspected Gray was "immediately involved or had been recently involved in criminal activity."

From the earlier statement I stated, a cop can't judge a man by the area. He can just stop a person because he sees him in an area that has drug activity. The judge can order a person to not be in an area. Not the police. You have a right to be in any area of your choosing. 

Rodriguez said police "have no physical, video or any other evidence of an altercation" that would result in Gray's injuries.

"The question is how and why, and more importantly if there is anything contributory from our agency, how can we prevent that?" he said. "We're not there yet but we will get there."

Police are assembling a task force to review the incident, expected to include personnel across a range of departments, including training and lab prep personnel, as well as teams from homicide investigators and force investigation, Batts said.
The police drag a screaming Freddie Gray to the van. It was caught on camera.
An independent board also will review the administrative case against the officers, after State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby decides whether or not to file criminal charges and that case concludes. A spokeswoman for Mosby could not be reached Sunday.

Rawlings-Blake spokesman Kevin Harris said he does not know yet who will serve on the independent review board, which officials referred to as a "blue-ribbon" panel.

Officers involved have been placed on administrative leave as a matter of department policy.

In a statement posted to Twitter, the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 3, Baltimore's police union, asked for "no rush to judgment until the investigation is complete and all the facts are known."

"We thank Mayor Rawlings-Blake and Commissioner Batts for their leadership and welcome a thorough and complete investigation into the death of Mr. Gray, as we also agree that all lives matter," the union said.

Gray's family has declined to meet with police so far, Batts said. Police intend to try again this week.

"I extend my deepest sympathies to his family. I have no words to offer that will ease the pain that has resulted," Batts said.

"All lives matter," he added, in a nod to the "Black Lives Matter" mantra shouted at protests across the country in response to recent police brutality incidents.

The Wire is a show that was based off the works of the Baltimore Metropolitan Police.

Each season of The Wire introduces a different institution in the city of Baltimore. In chronological order they are: the illegal drug trade, the seaport system, the city government and bureaucracy, the school system, and the print news media, while continuing on characters/plots from previous seasons. The large cast consists mainly of character actors who are little known for their other roles, as well as numerous guest and recurring appearances by real-life Baltimore and Maryland figures. Simon has said that despite its presentation as a crime drama, the show is "really about the American city, and about how we live together. It's about how institutions have an effect on individuals. Whether one is a cop, a longshoreman, a drug dealer, a politician, a judge or a lawyer, all are ultimately compromised and must contend with whatever institution to which they are committed."

Despite receiving only average ratings and never winning major television awards, The Wire has been described by many critics as one of the greatest TV dramas of all time.

The show is recognized for its realistic portrayal of urban life, its literary thematics, and its uncommonly deep exploration of social and political themes.

The Cincinnati-Dayton Metroplex!

Cincinnati and Dayton may merge communities and form a metroplex. This is Interstate 71/75 through Covington, Kentucky. Coming down the "Cut In the Hill" you see the skyline of Cincinnati.

With the rise in population around Butler, Warren and Greene Counties, the Dayton metro area will eventually be a "suburb" of Cincinnati.

Cincinnati, the city that sits on the banks of the Ohio River, population 287,000 is the hub of Southwestern Ohio. Dayton, the city that sits in west central Ohio, population 137,000 is the hub of the Miami Valley.

Both cities are control access cities with Interstate 70 and Interstate 75 being the nation's most frequently traveled highways. Interstate 71 and Interstate 74 both serve regional hubs such as Indianapolis, Louisville, Columbus and Cleveland.

Cincinnati is a global leader in innovation and manufacturing. Dayton while struggling to survive is the hub of health care, military research and aviation history.

Wright Patterson Air Force base is the nation's most active military installation.

Cincinnati's metro area includes Southwestern Ohio, Southeastern Indiana and Northern Kentucky.

Dayton's metro area includes Troy, Xenia, and Eaton. Dayton suffered a setback. Springfield, Ohio and Richmond, Indiana are no longer part of the Dayton MSA.

Springfield's micropolitan area includes Yellow Springs, Urbana and New Carlisle.

The talk around town is Dayton and Cincinnati may eventually form a metroplex.

Interstate 75 traveling through Dayton Ohio.
The Mill Creek Expressway project is an ongoing issue. Interstate 75 travels through Cincinnati and heads northward towards Dayton. The  Mill Creek Expressway project will create a full access interchange at Hopple Street, an easier access to Interstate 74/US 52, elimination of left hand exits at Harrison Avenue, and improve access to Mitchell Avenue and The Norwood Lateral (SR 562).

The highway is going through some major improvements between the two cities and through Northwestern Ohio and Toledo.

Interstate 71 is also in the works. The Ohio Department of Transportation is trying to make a full interchange exit to serve the University of Cincinnati. The exit ramp for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive is underway. The exit will eliminate the Taft Road exit and make it easier to access UC, the Zoo and Xavier University.

The highway is being worked on through Warren County through Jeremiah Morrow Bridge and into Columbus, Ohio.

With that said, the Cincinnati and Dayton leaders are seeking solutions to ease up constant traffic congestion. The talk of a full service toll road and 3-digit highway comes into play.

Also there's focus on areas north of Cincinnati and south of Dayton.

Dayton is about 85% complete on its revitalization project. The project calls for the elimination of the left handed exits that used to serve downtown. It will be one single wide lane exit that serves to segments of Dayton's central business district.

The region grew with the addition of Austin Landing, The Premium Outlets of Cincinnati, Miami Valley Gaming, and the future Liberty Center shopping center.

Some areas are being worked on and the communities that the Interstate serves will be affected.

The Dayton Daily News notes that a key criteria for merging two metropolitan areas is if 25 percent of residents living in central counties of one metro — such as Greene, Miami and Montgomery counties of the Dayton area — commute to work in central counties of a neighboring metro — such as Butler, Warren, Clermont or Hamilton counties, or parts of Northern Kentucky, as part of the larger Cincinnati MSA — according to U.S. Office of Budget and Management standards. The counties must also be contiguous.

While the U.S. Census Bureau tracks population patterns, it’s up to the federal Budget and Management department to make the call on a metro merger, research by this newspaper found. The federal budget office did not respond to interview or information requests by deadline.

“When we work with employers considering coming to the region, they don’t consider geographical boundaries,” said Adam Jones, administrator of the Workforce Investment Board of Butler, Clermont and Warren Counties, a workforce development agency.

Metroplex, macro region or mega region — all ways to describe the growing Interstate-75 corridor — aren't formal government terms.

Rather, government officials will consider population patterns and common economic development and social relationships for changing the borders of a metropolitan area, according to information provided by the Census Bureau.

“It highlights and confirms … we ought to be doing what we’re doing today and work together,” said Cincinnati Vice Mayor David Mann, as a panelist at last Thursday’s Think Regional conference.

Think Regional brought together business, government and nonprofit leaders from throughout Cincinnati and Dayton at an all-day event held April 16 in West Chester Twp. to promote regional collaboration.
The Cincinnati MSA and Dayton MSA.
“We don’t really have a choice if we want to compete as a region,” said Mann, referring to the need for the urban cores and surrounding communities to work together.

The city of Dayton thinks about Cincinnati every day, but Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley would be happy if Cincinnati thought of Dayton at least twice a week, she joked as a speaker Thursday on the same panel with Mann.

“I have a real interest in Cincinnati thinking north,” Whaley said. “In describing where Dayton is… we are an hour north of Cincinnati.”

“When we’re selling Dayton, we’re selling Cincinnati and Southwest Ohio,” Whaley said.

As of the most recent rankings of America’s largest metropolitans, the Cincinnati Tristate falls 28th on the list with a population of 2,149,449, according to the Census Bureau. Those estimates are as of July 1, 2014. The Dayton area ranks 71st on the list with a population of 800,836.

A combined Cincinnati-Dayton metropolitan with 2,950,285 people would rank the region as the 18th largest in the U.S. behind San Diego-Carlsbad, Calif., and ahead of Tampa-St.Petersburg-Clearwater, Fla.

A government designation of the area as one instead of two separate metropolitans would make a big difference in marketing the area to outside businesses, said Johnna Reeder, president and chief executive officer of REDI Cincinnati, the nonprofit economic development agency in charge of attracting businesses to Greater Cincinnati.

“The positives are when you’re bigger, you’re seen as having more assets and that’s a good thing when you’re trying to compete on big projects,” Reeder said.

Continued growth and trade along the corridor between Cincinnati and Dayton will drive the need for more talks between Cincinnati- and Dayton-area leaders, said Phil Parker, president and chief executive officer of Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce.

“You start to see more people and more businesses living along that corridor, it starts to add up to the point when there will be a time when people say we need to meet with and speak with our counterparts along that corridor to see what we can do to come up with the advantages… of that one large metropolis,” Parker said.

“I think the jury’s still out on it because one of the things people don’t want to happen is they certainly don’t want Dayton to be the red-headed step child of an area when right now we have our own governmental bodies, zip codes, etc.,” he said.

I'll Have Mine On WHITE Bread!

Image via GoFundMe/Jim Boggess

There was a deli shop owner in America that wanted to show his pride. He introduced the White History Month for a promotional stunt. This stunt got him some attention.

Yeah, he's blaming the junk food media and those pesky activists.

The town of Flemington is embarrassed by this deli.

Jim Boggess of Jimbo's Deli has some negative publicity. This latest stunt managed to set the public ablaze. He posted on his business "Celebrate Your White Heritage in March. This is White History Month."

“[T]he bottom dropped out and customers were no longer coming into my deli, and now I am forced to close down my Deli and lose my American dream,” he wrote. “I have become heavily in debt and getting shut off notices from everywhere for both business and home. I don’t think I deserve this just because I wanted to be proud of being white and be able to celebrate my heritage like everyone else does.”
Wonder if he'll make my sandwich on Rye with lots of Black Forest ham.
Critics immediately pounced, questioning whether the sign was really to blame, prompting Boggess to post an update.

“Yes, you guys are right, the store wasn’t doing good before the sign was posted,” he wrote. “But it was doing good enough to keep the store open.”

He said after the sign was posted, business dried up.

The deli has mostly terrible reviews on Yelp.

His business shut down for the time being.

He wanted to start a GoFundMe page to gain success. But it only netted less than $300 in donations.

He wanted to do what Memories Pizza done when its owners stated they weren't going to serve customers they perceive as gay.

During the Indiana fiasco, a pizza shop outside of South Bend got media attention after they said they won't cater to gay couples. The pizza shop got death threats and the conservative agitators asked for their fans to support the pizza shop. The pizza shop netted over $100,000 in donations.

Ben Affleck: I Am Shocked! My Decedents Owned Slaves!

Ben Affleck reportedly wanted PBS to scrub his ancestor's ugly past.

As Warner Brothers release the trailer for the new Batman and Superman movie, many people are criticizing the picking of actor Ben Affleck as Batman.

Affleck was then Marvel's Daredevil and the movie was a colossal flop.

Now he emerges as Batman. Some claim the Dark Knight could damaged by Affleck.

He and then girlfriend Jennifer Lopez done the worst movie ever to exist. It's called Gigli

Now he's trying to bury his ancestors in the dirt, literally.

On the PBS program, Find Your Roots, hosted by Henry "Skip" Gates, there was a segment  "Roots of Freedom," which discusses his Freedom Rider mother, a Revolutionary War ancestor and his third great-grandfather. But according to a hacked Sony email posted by WikiLeaks on Thursday, Affleck reportedly asked PBS to edit out information about an ancestor who owned slaves.

In the email, "Finding Your Roots" host Henry Louis Gates Jr. emailed Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton for advice regarding the request, the New York Daily News reported. In the email dated July 22, 2014, Gates wrote, "For the first time, one of our guests has asked us to edit out something about one of his ancestors -- the fact that he owned slaves."

The Huffington Post reports Lynton replied, telling Gates to take it out if no one knew the material was already in the documentary. "I would take it out if no one knows," Lynton wrote, "but if it gets out that you are editing the material based on this kind of sensitivity then it gets tricky. Again, all things being equal I would definitely take it out."

Gates responded saying that removing the information would be "a violation of PBS rules, actually, even for Batman." The host later added that Affleck's ancestor "wasn't even a bad guy," noting that four or five of the other guests from the show that season, including Anderson Cooper, were descendants of slave owners.

Both Gates and PBS released statements on the network's website Friday regarding the hacked emails and the episode.

"Ultimately, I maintain editorial control on all of my projects and, with my producers, decide what will make for the most compelling program," Gates said. "In the case of Mr. Affleck -- we focused on what we felt were the most interesting aspects of his ancestry." The network expressed its support for Gates and his producers' "independent editorial judgment to choose the most compelling narrative."

In a statement to The Huffington Post, a representative for Sony criticized WikiLeaks for the “indexing of stolen employee and other private and privileged information.”

“We vehemently disagree with WikiLeaks’ assertion that this material belongs in the public domain and will continue to fight for the safety, security, and privacy of our company and its more than 6,000 employees," the statement read.

The Clowns Juggle Their Balls In New Hampshire!

The clown car is getting awfully full. 

A herd of Anti-Obama/Oppose Clinton candidates traveled inside that tiny car. They head directly to New Hampshire in their attempt to show the local Republicans how they can juggle their balls.

The current clowns running include The Stallmigos.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)

These three unaccomplished lawmakers were the first to announce their run.
Nashua. This is the Nashua River Dam.
Accompanying the three clowns are the first timers. They may announce their intentions soon.

New Jersey governor Chris Christie
Wisconsin governor Scott Walker
Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal
Ohio governor John Kaisch
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
George Pataki, former governor of New York
Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida
Bob Ehrlich, former governor of Maryland
Ben Carson, writer and former neurosurgeon
Donald Trump, real estate mogul, celebrity agitator and game show host

And the perennial candidates who ride in the trunk of the car. They may announce their intention to run as well.

Jim Gilmore, perennial candidate and former governor of Virginia
Carly Fiorina, perennial candidate and former Hewitt Packard executive
Rick Perry, perennial candidate and former governor of Texas
Rick Santorum, perennial candidate and former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania
Mike Huckbee, perennial candidate, former Arkansas governor and conservative agitator
Jack Fellure, perennial candidate for office

As expected the field for the nomination has the Republicans more excited. But seriously, the field is weak. The candidates from 2008 and 2012 were weak. I mean the field was a total embarrassment.
Manchester, New Hampshire
I can say the most serious ones as expected are Walker, Bush, Kasich and Christie. But Paul is a popular figure among the young Republicans.

The candidates who are minorities. Although there are two Hispanic men, one Black man, one Asian American man and one woman in the fold, they're regarded as White people in my opinion.

Cruz and Rubio are Hispanic. They both have family members who grew up in Cuba. They and "honorary" Hispanic Jeb Bush can speak fluent Spanish.

Carson is the only Black candidate to announce that he may put on the makeup.

Fiorina is the only woman who announced that she may put on the makeup.

Piyush "Bobby" Jindal is the only Asian American (South Indian decent) to announce he's putting on the makeup.

Rafel Edward Cruz (aka Ted) is the only candidate born in Canada. He was born to an American mother and Cuban father. He will face an onslaught of birther nonsense by his Republican critics.

Each of these candidates are going to bark Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama.

With Obama fatigue and lack of interest in all the candidates, it's likely a Republican could win this election. All the candidates lack the appeal to win over voters.

Because being the president doesn't mean you're going to get your way. Congress is currently controlled by Republicans. During the last two years of George W. Bush's presidency, he had Democrats control it. And in the last two years of Barack Obama, Republicans took back control of Congress.

Bush and Obama had rough second terms.

They are ignored by the junk food media and the media is chasing the next shinny coin.

If a Republican wins the White House, expect the Democrats to oppose everything the president proposes. Expect more gridlock and liberal agitators to be as nasty as the conservative agitators were to Obama.

I bet you money the moment one Republican secures enough votes to win the White House, the first liberal agitator will slam the president-elect and hope for failure. They'll say well if that old fart (Rush Limbaugh) hopes Obama fails, then its fair game.

Johnny Kemp Passed Away!

Johnny Kemp was a part of the New Jack Swing era.

Remember it's Friday night, and you just got paid. Well the hit single came from R&B singer Johnny Kemp. Tonight the Associated Press announced he had passed away in Jamaica.

He was big in the 1990s but that was the only hit that managed to top the charts. 

He was born in the Bahamas. He began his singing career at 13. He performed at nightclubs and when he decided to venture to the United States he settled in New York.

He released the album Secrets of Flying which contained "Just Got Paid" and "Dancin' With Myself".

He was a scheduled performer for the Tom Joyner Soul Cruise. He was found in Montego Bay in a watery pit.

He leaves behind a wife and two sons. 

Kemp is a veteran of the new jack swing era. The New Jack Swing is a mixture of hip-hop fused with R&B. The genre produced a smack dab of hits. Kemp was a part of the music.

We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of Johnny Kemp.

Young Thug: Thugger F. Stunna Conquers Weezy F. Baby!

The feud between Lil' Wayne and Birdman drags Young Thug into it.

Atlanta rapper Young Thug is feuding with Lil' Wayne. The rapper was brought into this feud because of Weezy's frustration with his former mentor Birdman.

Also the rapper used Tha Carter for his album title.  It comes at a time when Weezy F. Baby is fighting Cash Money Records over the scrapping of Tha Carter V.

Young Thug releases his mixtape/album Barter 6 (formerly The Carter 6). The album features Birdman, T.I., Boosie Badazz and Young Dolph. The album was marred with controversy because many of the fans feel that it was"disrespect" to Lil' Wayne.

Thugger was going to be sued by Lil' Wayne's lawyers for copyright infringement.
Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan released Rich Gang Tha Tour Pt. 1 & 2 on
The album was initially reported to be entitled Carter 6, a continuation of Lil Wayne's successful Tha Carter album series which had also been released by Cash Money Records.

This created controversy, as Wayne's scheduled album Tha Carter V had been repeatedly delayed amid a dispute between himself and Cash Money, who had reportedly refused to release the album.

Wayne subsequently became involved in legal proceedings against Cash Money and publicly criticized the label's owner (and Thug's mentor) Birdman, as well as responding negatively to Thug's decision to name the album after him.

Despite this, Thug claimed that he was not trying to be disrespectful, and that Wayne was his 'idol'.

Following a threat of legal action, Thug announced days prior to the release that the album was to be renamed it Barter 6, in line with the typical Blood gang practice of replacing the letter "C" with "B".

Lil' Wayne also aimed at the rapper for going full birthday suit. The album cover has Thug in the semi nude. 

A week ago, Weezy told his Mississippi fans, "Y’all let him know I said, 'Fuck ‘em,'"

Of course, Thuggwe fired a shot at Wayne. And to make it even interesting he fired shots at rhyming partner Rich Homie Quan after allegations of the rapper having a fling with Thugger's woman.

"Pussy boy I'll leave you dead and call it Dedication," Thugger raps.  While he's insisted many times that he once idolizes Lil' Wayne, some could interpret that line as a diss towards his idol, given that Wayne released a Dedication series of mixtapes.

T.I. is also on "Can't Tell." Yesterday (April 15), T.I. took the Atlanta, Georgia rapper's words as sincere when he addressed the purported rivalry he was having with Lil Wayne.  "'Everybody's making it a whole lot more,'" T.I. said Young Thug told him. "'I'm doing it to pay homage. That's my favorite rapper.'" reports that Barter 6 has been heavily publicized due in part to the emcee's statements. The rapper called his "Mamacita" collaborators — as well as his new boss, Birdman — his "lovers." Then there is his referring to Rich Homie Quan as "Bitch Homie Quan," as well as his Jay Z diss in a GQ interview.

The rise of Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan got the O.G.s of hip-hop worried. 

You wondering why Wayne aimed at Thug and Quan?
The infamous kiss. Birdman plants on on Lil' Wayne and former Cash Money rapper Gillie Da Kid made it public.
Lil' Wayne's I Am Not A Human Being 2 went Gold. Tha Carter IV was 2x Platinum. DatPiff has charted millions of downloads for almost every official mixtape Wayne puts out.

Weezy is doing just fine. But the feud with his longtime label is newsworthy. Wayne is the last original member of the label. He, Juvie (aka Juvenile), The B.G., Young Turk were the Hot Boys.

Birdman and then in house producer Mannie Fresh were The Big Tymers. 

Cash Money Records came to fame in the late 1990s with hit singles Back That Azz Up, Bling Bling, I Need A Hot Girl and #1 Stunna.

Young Thug was once affiliated with Gucci Mane's 1017 Brick Squad Records. 

He is managed by Rich Gang Music, Birdman's upstart music label.
