Waka's Security Should Be Charged Claims Mother

Although Waka Flocka Flames may have been the victim during a shooting on February 16th that resulted in the arrests of six men, the Atlanta rapper is not in the clear just yet. 
Parents of the North Carolna men was charged with shooting up Waka Flocka's tour bus want charges to be brought against the rapper's security guards, raising the claim that members in the Waka's entourage fired the first shots. 

The mother of Antonio Stukes, who was shot in the shoulder during the altercation, claimed there was another side to the story. 

Antonio Stukes' lawyer claimed his client was there simply to meet Waka Flocka Flames about a record deal. 

Stukes claims he was caught in the cross-fire when two vehicles open-fired upon the tour bus, which was being fitted with a new stereo system at Car Stereo Warehouse.

"Just don't listen to one side of the story because there is always another side," Stukes' mother Antoinette told The Charlotte Observer.

Stukes' mother is organizing a rally along with the other mothers of the men charged.

"So us parents are trying to get together so they can hear our cry and release our kids," Stukes said. "I don't understand why they are not locked up or being questioned for shooting at people."

Surveillance video of the shooting exists, but police and the store have refused to release the tape, despite offers as high as $5,000 dollars for the footage.

All men have been charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling.

Philly Rapper Young Reek Joins Police force Cops Investigate

The Internal Affairs division in the Philadelphia Police Department has opened an investigation into police officer Robert Acevedo Jr., after finding out his past as a former gangster rapper.
Robert Acevedo Jr. is a philadelphia artist better known as Young Reek. In 2009, he was even named Best Latin Artist at the Philly Hip-Hop Award in 2009.

 Police began the investigation after learning of his rap videos, and the fact that he won an out-of-court settlement against the Philadelphia police in 2008, for police brutality.

Acevedo joined the Philadelphia police department in 2010, after giving up his career as a rapper, according to FOP Treasurer John Ruane.

But his conduct in his rap videos has investigators worried about his ability to serve and protect the community, despite the fact that his father is a retired Philadelphia police officer.

In the track "Top Gunnaz," Acevedo, aka "Young Reek," threatens to shoot people and kill people and also alludes to smoking.

Despite the settlement against the police for police brutality, its his rap career that has sparked the investigation in regards to a possible conflict of interest when it comes to serving the public.

"You may have a conflict of conscience but not a conflict of interest here," said former Philadelphia Police Commissioner John Timoney. "I don't know how it didn't come up in background check, but even if it did, the issues that disqualify you are drug testing and prior contact with the justice system. Being litigious won't disqualify you."

The real Rick Ross says that his legal battle with his rappin' namesake is far from over, and that his forthcoming biopic will be "the black Godfather."
Rick Donnell Ross, the man who bares the unfortunate title of having been the "kingpin of crack" during the 1980s, is currently having trouble convincing some people that he is even who he says he is. When a new generation hears the name “Rick Ross” they instantly think of a rotund rapper from Miami, and not the diminutive drug dealer from Los Angeles. The South Central native, who acquired his nickname “Freeway” from the collection of properties he owned at one time near the Harbor Freeway, is fighting to reclaim the name he made simultaneously infamous and illustrious while running an enormous empire that stretched from California to Cincinnati.   the recent dismissal a
his lawsuit against rapper rick ross does not signal the end of his quest to let the world know who “the real Rick Ross” is, (but that he would consider calling off his legal hounds if his rappin’ namesake will just “tell everybody that he really wanted to be me”).
Having spent almost the entirety of the ‘90s and ‘00s behind bars, Ross also revealed what contact he had with the then burgeoning Hip Hop scene in Los Angeles during the ‘80s, and how he “coulda been Eazy-E back then, with money” if not for a former business partner of Dr. Dre telling him to “leave Rap alone.” 
And maybe most notably, the man who once made tens of millions of dollars monthly while pushing up to 100 kilos of cocaine weekly (courtesy of a C.I.A.-sponsored connect who was “fundraising” on behalf of the Reagan administration-backed Nicaraguan Contras) revealed how his jaw-dropping life story (first revealed in part to the masses by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb) is shaping up to become one of the most impressive biopics ever made.
