The rapper was released and has continued to release hits.

American rapper Cassidy whose real name is Barry Adrian Reese is second on our list. The career of the now 38-year-old was just beginning to peak when he dropped his Billboard chart-topper “I’m a Hustler” in 2005. His success was however short-lived following his June 17, 2006 arrest.

A Philadelphia judge declared rapper Cassidy guilty Tuesday afternoon of involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of 22-year-old Desmond Hawkins and sentenced the rapper to 11 and a half to 23 months behind bars, plus probation.


He was also convicted of two counts of aggravated assault and possession of an instrument of crime for his involvement in the shooting.

The killings were allegedly in retaliation of murder of Hip-hop icon Mac Dre.

The rapper, who has a net worth of five million dollars, decided to share a chart that distinguishes the wealthy and the low classes.

The chart has sparked an online debate that might not end soon. If the graph got made by a famous person who gets a million-dollar worth of gifts on his birthday, we have to listen. 

The poorest people range between an income of zero dollars to five hundred thousand dollars in the graph. The next level is the middle class that ranges from $500,000 to 2 million dollars. 

After the middle class, we have the upper-middle category. Now, this class ranges between two million to four million US dollars.

According to the The Bigger Picture rapper, those who earn between ten million and thirty million dollars fall under the wealthy class.

There is a ‘poor’ rich people category ($30M-$80M), then the comfortably wealthy class ($80M-$150M), followed by the rich (150-200), seriously rich ($200M-$400M), Truly Rich ($400-$800), Filthy Rich ($800M- $2Billion), before we land to the most fortunate group the Super Rich($ 2Billion and above).

Where do you fall? Let us know below.

The internet is a phenomenon with a significant influence on people. The serious incident of a woman, Tessica Brown, who applied Gorilla Glue to her hair, was a hit, but not one to be replicated. But a Louisiana man tried it, and the aftermath was dire. 

Meet Len Martin, a 37-year-old man who tried to prove Tessica Brown wrong. Martin stated that the Gorilla Glue was not as strong as Tessica was trying to make. To prove her wrong, he took a red cup and applied the Gorilla Glue on it, then placed it on his mouth. His end game was he thought all he would need to remove was to lick it off. Boy, was he wrong!

Martin had to show up to the hospital with the cup stuck to his upper lip. The doctors were luckily able to take the cup off his lips through peeling, to which Martin described it as ‘painful.’ This came with a warning that if his lip did not heal properly, he would have to undergo surgery.  

From an internet joke to finding himself in the ER getting a ‘painful peeling’ to get the cup off his lip, Martin had a message for everyone attempting to do the ‘challenge.’ Martin said, “This is definitely not one to try. Let’s just stop this now. … It’s very harmful.”

Martin added that he did not do the stunt for fame, according to what fans had to say. He had learned his lesson just like Tessica Brown had. Here have a look at what fans were throwing his way:
