Jay, Jay Z, and Meek Mill: JAY-Z Pens Report In Support Of Meek Mill: "Probation ls A Trap And We Must Fight For Meek And Everyone Else Unjustly Sent To Prison" @balleralert JAY-Z Pens Report In Support Of Meek Mill: "Probation Is A Trap And We Must Fight For Meek And Everyone Else Unjustly Sent To Prison" - blogged by @baetoven_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an opinion piece for the NewYorkTimes titled, “The Criminal Justice System Stalks Black People Like Meek Mill," JAYZ outlined flaws in the criminal justice system and continued his support of his Roc Nation artist in the wake of Meek’s recent prison sentence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jay-Z begins by arguing that "For about a decade, [Meek]'s been stalked by a system that considers the slightest infraction a justification for locking him back inside." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "What’s happening to MeekMill is just one example of how our criminal justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people every day," the "4:44" artist wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Probation is a trap and we must fight for Meek and everyone else unjustly sent to prison," he continued. "It’s time we highlight the random ways people trapped in the criminal justice system are punished every day. The system treats them as a danger to society, consistently monitors and follows them for any minor infraction — with the goal of putting them back in prison." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jay-Z concluded the piece by directing readers to Color of Change, an organization that advocates for courts to treat people on parole or probation in Philadelphia more fairly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The music mogul, who previously called Meek's sentence "unjust and heavy-handed" also stopped his show in Dallas last week to denounce Meek's two to four-year prison sentence.

College, Joe Biden, and Lady Gaga: Lady Gaga and Joe Biden Are Teaming Up to Develop Trauma Centers for Emotional and Physical Abuse Victims @balleralert Lady Gaga and Joe Biden Are Teaming Up to Develop Trauma Centers for Emotional and Physical Abuse Victims - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Former vice president Joe Biden and Grammy-winning artist LadyGaga are coming together to create trauma centers for victims of physical and emotional abuse. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Biden discussed him and Gaga’s plans on Monday at Glamour’s Women of the Year Summit in New York City. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Women who are abused end up having long-term physical and physiological problems ... We finally are recognizing the long-term impacts," Biden said, specifying that women should be able to receive long-term help at such centers. "It's the next great frontier I want to be part of." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During his speech, he also highlighted the bravery of those who have been subjected to sexual assault and have shared their stories in recent media. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "It's hard to come forward … don't let this slow up," Biden said. "This is time to fundamentally change the culture of how women are treated in American society ... The culture is changing because so many brave women — knowing they were going to be vilified — are coming forward. Look at all these men have rightfully lost, now. Million dollar contracts! That wouldn't have happened a year ago, five years ago, 10 years ago, so keep pushing,” said Biden. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Entertainment Weekly reports the centers are still in its early stages of preparation. This isn’t the first time the two have made efforts to diminish sexual harassment and assault. Back in October, Gaga and Biden teamed up to promote ItsOnUs, a non-profit that educates people on how to target and prevent sexual assault on college campuses.

A$AP Rocky, Beyonce, and Billboard: Cardi B Makes History With First Three Top 10s on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart Simultaneously @balleralert Cardi B Makes History With First Three Top 10s on Billboard's Hot R&B-Hip-Hop Songs Chart Simultaneously - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2017 is CardiB’s year, from a number one record, to a surprise engagement to several historical feats. Just months after the Bronx rapper made hip-hop history with her smash hit, “Bodak Yellow,” Billboard reports that she has done it again with two more hits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cardi B has become the first woman to chart her first three entries on Billboard’s Hot R&B-Hip-Hop Songs chart in the top 10 simultaneously. With ‘Bodak Yellow’ still doing numbers, coasting at No. 2, Migos’ ‘Motorsport’ featuring Cardi B and NickiMinaj debuted at No. 5. Finally, G-Eazy’s ‘No Limit’ featuring Cardi B and A$AP Rocky moved from 12 to 9 on the chart, completing the rapper’s hip-hop history trifecta. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The feat also makes Cardi the first artist to do so since Fetty Wap in 2015. According to Billboard, the accomplishment lands Cardi among only five other female artists, who were able to post three simultaneous top 10s at any point in her career, which includes, Ashanti, Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Beyoncé and Rihanna.
