Hopefully this is the end of it all. We can't be serious all the time. With all the craziness going on in the world, every little escape or distractions are necessary sometimes just to add laughter in our lives because 'Laughter Is Healing.' I'm all for a friendly rap battle. As long as they keep it that way.
Video Below, Warning Graphic Content: University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing, was indicted Wednesday on a murder charge in the shooting death of Samuel DuBose. It all started when unarmed Samuel DuBose was pulled over by Tensing during a July 19 traffic stop over an alleged missing license tag. 43-year-old Samuel DuBose, a father of 13 was driving a 1998 Honda Accord around 6:30pm, when Tensing signaled for him to pulled over. After coming to a stop, the two were involved in small talk. Where are you heading, is this your vehicle, why are your plates missing and may I see your license. Wearing his bodycam, Tensing asked DuBose if he had his license a few times. As the conversation between the two about his license continue, DuBose did not have his license. Tensing asked him to step out of the vehicle and Pulled the door open a few inches, DuBose pulls it closed and says, 'I didn't do nothing, man.' DuBose turns the key and revs the engine. The car slowly started to move. He did not attack the office. Within seconds, Tensing pulled his weapon and shot DuBose in the head, killing him execution style.
Thank God For The Bodycam: Tensing lied in the police report. Two officers who appeared on the scene later also repeated his lie. Tensing said, he was being dragged along the car and feared for his life. Shooting was his only option due to that fear. Tensing surrendered to authorities shortly after news of the indictment broke. His arraignment is scheduled for Thursday. He was also terminated from his job. Before the video was released, speaking to reporters, Tensing's attorney said that he believes the officer feared for his life and was dragged by DuBose's car. "The guy jams the keys in the ignition," Stew Mathews told CNN. "Turns the car on, jams it in the drive and mashes the accelerator. He wasn't slowly pulling away. (Tensing) feared for his life. He thought he was going to be sucked under the car that was pulling away from him. He thought he was going to get sucked under and killed." Tensing will be facing life in prison, if convicted, per the Hamilton County Prosecutor.
The murder and voluntary manslaughter charges were announced by ProsecutorJoe Deters Wednesday. He said that, Tensing 'purposely killed DuBose' and 'should never have been a police officer' He said that Tensing lied. "I've been doing this for over 30 years. This is the most asinine act I've ever seen a police officer make -- totally unwarranted," said Deters. "It's an absolute tragedy in the year 2015 that anyone would behave in this manner. It was senseless." "People want to believe that Mr. DuBose had done something violent towards the officer -- he did not. He did not at all. I feel so sorry for his family and what they lost, and I feel sorry for the community, too," said Deters.
Audrey DuBose, the mother of Samuel DuBose also held a press conference. She’s being comforted by her children, son Aubrey DuBose (top left image) and daughter Terina Allen (bottom left). She told reporters that she is grateful "everything was uncovered" in her son's shooting. "I want everybody to just lift up their heads in prayer, and thank God because this one did not go unsolved and hidden," said Audrey DuBose.
"We're going to continue to fight together with God. "The family attorney Mark O'Mara (top right and middle right image), said that he's glad for the video because he does not believe there would have been an indictment if there hadn't been video available.
"We've now made a huge first step because in a situation where sometimes people believe that officers are not held accountable for their actions. In this case, one is being held accountable. So Cincinnati is showing the rest of us how to do this right." Bottom right image is Samuel DuBose and a few of his children. Watch the press conference and indictment announcement below.

Praying for the family. Also continue to pray for the families of Tamir Rice in Cleveland, Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina and more. All African American unarmed male, murdered by police officers.

With countless of hits and collaborations under their belt, their friendship seemed to be going well.
After Minaj 12 years relationship to Safaree Samuels ended because he left her, stating that he felt more like "The Help" and not her man, she quickly moved on.
Rapper Meek Mill who has always have the hearts for Minaj is now her new man and they're currently on a world tour together. Minaj rebound relationship looks picture perfect, but that hasn't stopped her from blasting her ex Safaree. Meek also joined into the drama, which led Safaree to released a diss track after being silent for such a long time. Read more and listen to the track here.
Meek didn’t stop there, he decided to also disrespect another person very close to Minaj, her friend and label mate Drake. Read his Tweets below.
He continued with more Tweets below.
Drake helped Meek Mill crossover into mainstream with the hit song "Amen." Drake is also on one of the hit songs on his current album, where the current beef came from. Drake also wore a "Free Meek T. Shirt while on tour when Mill was incarcerated, which is why many are wondering why did Mill decided to disrespect Drake. He claimed that the verse from Drake on the track from his latest album wasn't written by Drake. Drake has always held Nicki Minaj down, even having her back during the Lil Kim and Minaj saga, so many are wondering what happened to her loyalty and why is she sitting back watching her new man disrespect people she love or loved. After a few days, Drake released his first diss track Charged Up listen below. He was calm intentionally on the record, basically saying that Meek isn't worth him breaking a sweat over, but he has come back harder in his new diss record called, Back to Back.

Lifeline Diss Track Released '12 Years A Slave Anyway': Safaree Samuels Vs. Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill
Song on the bottom, if updated on the backstory, skip down to listen: Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels had a relationship for twelve years. They started in a group together and Nicki decided to continue as a solo artist because the group did not do well. Samuels stood by her side through it all. What's strange was that although their inner circle and fans could tell that they were an item, Nicki never publicly claimed Samuels until they broke up. Samuel did a sit down interview with the Breakfasts Club a while ago after the breakup and told them that he left the relationship after years of feeling like he was the help and not her man.
Samuels hits back with the message below.
Minaj quickly moved on with rapper Meek Mill. They're currently on a successful tour together. The current drama between Nicki and Safaree, all started when MTV annouced the Video Music Award (VMA) nominations. Nicki Minaj was nominated three times. She Tweeted her thank you to MTV for her nominations, but apparently she wasn't happy about not being nominated for Video of The Year for her song Anaconda. She was also not happy about her Feeling My Self song ft. Beyonce not being nominated. Read more here. After her outburst about the nomination, her current man rapper Meek Mill, decided to start a Twitter war of his own. Going at Drake and Safaree Samuels. Meek has been extremely disrespectful to Samuels since becoming involved with Minaj. He made a video a while ago about wanting to be with Minaj, while she was in a relationship with Samuels. Meek now has Nicki, had the number one album in the country, on a very successful tour with the woman he claimed he love, so many are confuse why is he checking for the other man if he's happy. The same question is being asked to Nicki because she has constantly tried to speak not so pleasant about her ex. She made an entire album about their relationship and he said nothing. He made one song "Love The Most" and she went on a Twitter rant. Also co-signed when someone called him corny. After all this madness, Drake released "Charged Up" apparently geared towards Meek Mill. Take a listen below.
Drama Continues: On Safaree's Birthday earlier this month, he Tweeted about someone emailing him attempting to ruin his Birthday. Everyone speculated that it was Nicki. Read the Tweet below.
Sources of Samuel contacted TMZ saying that Meek Mill should stop worrying about him and focus on his relationship with Nicki because she's still in contact with him. Nicki responded by Tweeting that Meek knows and see all the communication between the two of them, in the Tweet below.
With the constant drama, Meek Mill calling him Gay for a dance battle video he did when he was 17-year-old and all the jabs at him, he has stayed humble and quite. Refusing to disrespect Minaj, but it seems that he can only take so much. He announced in the Tweet below, earlier in the week that he was releasing new music.
Well, the wait is over and the track is finally here. Listen below or click here if the video below doesn't play or is removed. Since leaving Minaj after twelve years together, Safaree is now dating gorgeous actress and model Zashia Santiago, images below.

Can We All Just Get Along: Samuels made a great point, if you're happy with your new relationship, why continue to assassinate his character. I hope that they all get it together soon. There are bigger issues going on in the world and these rich people with an amazing platform to raise awareness on these issues, are out here going after each other.
Whitney Houston was an icon. Her incredible voice led her to many successes. The singer, model and actress was great at everything she did. One of pop music’s best-selling artists, Houston was the greatest. She soon met and married, singer Bobby Brown. Houston soon became a mother as well. With more music recorded, an incredible acting career, a loving husband by her side and their adorable daughter Bobbi Kristina, Whitney was on top of the world. As her star shine in front of the flashing lights, she battled with the darkness of drug abuse behind close doors. Those demons did not outshine the natural gift from God which was her voice. Her role in the movie The Bodyguard changed her career for the better and her hit song I Will Always Love You became the best-selling single by a woman in music and cemented it place in history. She continued her acting career including films, Waiting to Exhale and The Preacher's Wife. Houston last starring role was in the movie Sparkle. This was one of the last major projects she worked on before her untimely death.
Houston was found unresponsive in her guest room bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. She accidentally drowned. Cocaine and heart disease were listed as contributing factor in her death, per the Coroner’s report. The singer was in town to attend her mentor Clive Davis Pre-Grammys Gala when she was found unresponsive in her bathtub.
Houston beautiful daughter Bobby Kristina Brown, promised to carry on her mother's legacy. She quickly signed on for some acting jobs and said that she was in the process of working on music.
With so much pain, she decided to turn to someone who she trusted and has been by her side for a long time. She found love and confided in her childhood friend, Nick Gordon. She announced that they were married. Whitney took Gordon in as her child and family members referred to him as her son. Although the pain of losing a love one never goes away, it seems that Bobby Kristina life was slowly coming back together and that she was learning how to cope.
It all changed, when she was found unresponsive in a bathtub by Nick Gordon and a friend in January. CPR was given by Gordon and a friend. She was taken to the North Fulton Hospital alive. With her long road ahead, her father Bobby Brown, came out while by her side at hospital, saying that his daughter and Gordon were never married. She was moved to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA and finally to Hospice care.
Knowing that her mother was also found unresponsive in a bathtub, during her untimely death, made the news about Bobbi Kristina being found that way very strange and devastating. During my segment with TMZ Live below, it was announced that the swelling in her brain decreased. We were all excited, when that new broke in February. Although we had our concerns, we were all hoping for the best. Hearing that she was moved to Hospice care a few weeks ago and now the news that, Bobbi Kristina is no longer with us, is very disappointing and sad. Praying for the family. Watch a video tribute below. Bobbi Kristina and her mother Whitney Houston moments together.
One of my very first appearance on national television with TMZ Live. I was on a segment about Whitney Houston and Bobbi Brown daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. This was at the beginning when it was announced that the swelling in her brain decreased. My face appeared at the 3:12 (Bottom right) mark and I start to speak at the 4:20 mark. Air date: 02/02/2015. Although we had our concerns, we were all hoping for the best and that the discussion about her brain swelling decrease was a start of more great news to come, so today is definitely a very sad day. Watch the clip below. Praying for the family. The image above, was my look for that day. There was nothing to smile about. I took the images to screen test before the segment. Also watch the YouTube video below of Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina moments together.
28-year-old Sandra Bland from Chicago, left her home in the surburban area for a new start and new position in the agricultural department at her alma mater Prairie View A&M, where she graduated from in May 2009, located in Waller County Texas. Bland's older sister said of her new start; "she was euphoric about the opportunity."
Bland's new start quickly came to an abrupt end when a routine traffic stop went horribly wrong. July 10, while driving a silver Hyundai Azera, Bland was pulled over in south Waller County on FM 1098 near Prairie View A&M. State trooper, Brain Encinia said that she was pulled over for failing to signal a lane change.
He wrote her a warning ticket. Things quickly escalates when he asked her to put out her cigarette (which is not against the law to smoke in your vehicle), when she asked why and told him that she was in her vehicle and shouldn't have to, he asked her to stepped out of her vehicle without informing her why. Encinia pulls out a Taser and said, "I will light you up," Bland stepped away from her vehicle. They're move away from the dashcam's view. The audio recorded what was being said. She pulls out her cell phone and attempted to record the encounter. Bland was oredered to put it away. She was hancuff, forced to the ground and taken to jail. Three days after her arrest, Bland was found dead from apparent "self-inflicted asphyxiation" in her cell in a Texas jail. With so many inconsistency with the story, the family is seeking more answers and the outrage of another person of color dying again while in police custody continues. The fight to raise awareness continues. Watch the full video below and a few videos from Bland "Sandy Speaks," a segment she did on Facebook.
Family and friends gathered on Saturday for Bland's funeral. They promised to keep fighting for justice. Hundreds of people attended the funeral near the Chicago suburb where she grew up. That was follwed by the celebration of her life.
In the image above, are Geneva Reed-Veal (center and Bland's mother), Bland's sisters Sharon Cooper (standing up, fourth right) and Shante Needham (seated, third right).
Mourners are embraced by Bland's family as they honor her by wearing T. Shirts with the hashtag "Sandy Speaks," which was a segment she did on her Facebook page. Watch a few of her videos below.
Months before Bland's death, she posted on Facebook that, she suffered from depression and post traumatic stress disorder. That post is being used in the case to confirm that her death was suicide, however Rev. Theresa Dear (in the above image,) spoke to reporters while outside of DuPage African Methodist Episcopal Church. She said that, "friends and family continue to have those doubts, even as authorities release documents in support of their conclusion it was suicide and will continue to seek justice." Below is a short clip from Bland's funeral arrival, videos from "Sandy Speaks" and the almost hour long video of her arrest.
Praying for your family Sandra Bland. May your beautiful soul rest peacefully. We will continue to fight for justice. In "Sandy Speak," may your voice and fight for justice live on.

Fix It Jesus Twitter Beef: Nicki Minaj Vs. MTV & Taylor Swift Her Man Meek Mill Vs. Drake & Safaree Samuels
It all started yesterday when MTV annouced the Video Music Award (VMA) nominations. Nicki Minaj was nominated three times. She Tweeted her thank you to MTV for her nominations, but apparently she wasn't happy about not being nominated for Video of The Year for her song Anaconda. She was also not happy about her Feeling My Self song ft. Beyonce not being nominated. She went on a rant. During one of her Tweets, she wrote that if her videos had all skinny women in it, it probably would've been nominated. Taylor Swift who fit the discription and had women of such discription in her videos, took the Tweet personal and responded to Minaj. Read the exchange below. After that went away, Minaj new man rapper Meek Mill decided that he too wanted in on the Twitter drama and started his online rant towards Drake. Read the Tweets below as well.
From old images above and Tweets, it shows that Drake respected Meek. Drake was also on his crossover hit Amen, so it was a total surprise when Meek Mill decided to go after Drake last night in a few Tweets below.
He continued his rant against Drake and as if that wasn't enough, he decided to throw a few jabs at his now woman Nicki Minaj ex Safaree Samuels. Read below.
Most said that Meek would wake up and claim that his account was hacked, but judging from his early morning Tweets above, he's not taking anything he wrote back. Drake did not respond and Safaree didn’t either. It was later revealed that Meek is upset because Drake didn't show up to his home coming and that he's also upset because Drake didn't post his album on social media. This is not his first time getting upset about someone not helping him promote his album. He went after rapper Wale as well a few years ago. There's an old video of Safaree who's from Jamaica dancing a traditional dance and Meek went after him for the way he was dancing and allegedly referred to him as Gay. Sometimes silience is the best medicine to negative energy. Meek now looks like he's been arguing with himself. Safaree being about all things positive, simply realized that people would be watching his social media pages for a response, so he did what any smart business man would do, he posted the image below to Instagram promoting his mix tape, It Is What It Is.
Since leaving Minaj after twelve years together, Safaree is now dating gorgeous actress and model Zashia Santiago, images above. Meek Mill made a video a while ago about wanting to be with Nicki Minaj, he has Nicki, had the number one album in the country, on a very successful tour with the woman he claimed he love, so why is he still checking for her ex is the question many were asking yesterday when all this happened. Get it together people. Be grateful for your blessings because it can all be taken away in a hearbeat. Comedian Michael Blackson decided to join in on the fun. Basketball player Brandon Jennings and blogger Perez Hilton also had a few words to add to all this. View below.
Update: Marie Claire decided to join in and explain what Nicki Minaj meant by speaking out against MTV Video of The Year Award snub for her video Anaconda. Minaj Re-Tweeted the article. Hopefully she can finally let this go. She did receive three nominations. Go get that win Nicki Minaj.
