In a virtual show appearance with Jimmy Kimmel Live! on October 2, Astroworld rapper Travis Scott spoke about his past when he worked as a ball boy for the Houston Rockets back when he was in high school.

The rapper retrieved and supplied balls for the players when he worked for his hometown NBA team.

Travis told Kimmel, “It had to have been, probably like I wanna say it was my junior year in high school or senior year in high school, one of those transitions.”

It was the year we had Kyle Lowry, Rafer Alston, I think Chuck Hayes,” he added. 

When asked whether retired NBA star Yao Ming still played for the Rockets at the time Travis worked for the team, the rapper answered, “Yao Ming was there, but he was leaving. T-Mac [Tracy McGrady] was leaving. I think Yao Ming was at the end of his…Yeah, so we wasn’t too much of a star-studded team at that time.”

The 28-year-old rapper also talked about when Carmelo Anthony gifted him with an autographed piece of memorabilia. 

 “I remember Melo was on the [Denver] Nuggets ’cause one day…we weren’t supposed to talk to star athletes, so one day Melo signed…gave me his headband and signed his headband, which is so funny. He probably doesn’t even remember this,” said Travis. 

The rapper mentioned meeting the late Kobe Bryant who gave him a signed basketball and said he had plenty of cool memories. “I met Kobe there and he signed a ball for me.”

Hold it down for the team players. … We never tell,” he added.

TI has just released a new album and confirmed an urban legend that one of his friends peed on Drake during a quarrel a decade ago, in one of the songs.

Last Friday, the legendary artist released a new album. In one of the songs, We Did It Big, featuring pop star John Legend, TI remembers fun times with lost friends. One line confirmed the long-standing rumor that his late friend Cap peed on Drake during a drunken altercation that happened ten years ago.

As the story goes, the embarrassing incident happened during the shooting of the 2010 film Takers. Cap, Tip’s friend who was murdered in prison last year, got into a heated argument with the 6 God’s crew and ended up pissing on the Drizzy.

Caught a body, spent millions appealing your case/While I’m fighting my own, somehow got you home/So drunk in LA, end up pissing on Drake, shit/Fuck it, that’s still my brother since back in the trap house,” TI raps confirming the story.

Now the story is a rumor no more.

Meek Mill also referred to the story in a diss track aimed at Drake. In the 2015 song “Wanna Know,” released at the height of his beef with the Canadian rapper, Meek rapped:

You let Tip homie piss on you in a movie theater nigga, we ain’t forget/Real niggas back in style this shit is lit/This that Ja Rule shit and 50 Cent.”

The new album, The LIBRA, is TI’s 11th solo studio LP, which has 20 songs and features several artists, including Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg, Benny The Butcher, 21 Savage, Young Thug, and Lil Baby.

Why Wasn’t Bobby Shmurda Released from Prison?

Published

AP

Court documents reveal the reasons why Bobby Shmurda was denied parole in September.

As reported on TMZ, it appears the judicial system doesn’t believe that Shmurda has been fully rehabilitated.

What does that mean for Shmurda? He will have to serve his entire seven-year-sentence, which ends on December 11, 2021.

Bobby had told the parole board of his plans to resume his rap career and do outreach programs with youth who need guidance. According to transcripts, he told the board that he thinks he’s now a leader.

Shmurda also says he wants to get a high school G.E.D when he gets out.

While applying for his parole, the 26-year-old said he considers others in his decision-making, doesn’t have impulsive behavior anymore, and walks away from bad situations when they occur.

The rapper will now have to put his plans on hold since the board denied his parole during the parole hearing. The board members pointed out that the rapper has had ‘multiple’ violations while in prison, including drug possession, allegedly having a shank, and fighting.

Shmurda was arrested in 2014 and charged with conspiracy to commit murder, reckless endangerment, and drug and gun possession; charges against the others included murder, attempted murder, assault, and drug dealing.
