Scarface - I Seen A Man Die [Explicit]
Useiden uutislähteiden mukaan Houston-legenda Scarfacella on todettu keuhkosyöpä.
Houston Rapper Diagnosed With Cancer
Scarface is fighting for his life against an aggressive and deadly form of cancer, BOSSIP has learned.
The veteran Houston rapper is battling lung cancer after years of “chain-smoking” cigarettes and marijuana, according to a source close to the star.
Scarface, whose real name is Brad T. Jordan, has been receiving treatment for the lung disease in his native Houston at Memorial Hermann Medical Center, which is renown for exceptional oncological care, the source said.
We’re told his condition has been up and down, and he had a close call a few months ago, telephoning a loved one in tears to complain that he was having trouble breathing and he believed it was the end.
However, the former “Geto Boys” member was able to bounce back and has booked a number of performances and other engagements since. He is now set to be in New York City this weekend for a show at the Source360 Conference and Festival in Brooklyn.
Scarface has not commented on the diagnosis, and we’ve also repeatedly reached out to his lawyer for comment.
Lung cancer disproportionately impacts the African-American community compared with other ethnic groups, and African-Americans are more likely to develop the disease and die from it, according to the American Lung Association.

DAZ DILLINGER ARRESTED FOR MARIJUANA POSSESSION IN GEORGIA
Daz Dillinger has run into some legal trouble. According to court documents, Tha Dogg Pound co-founder was arrested late Tuesday night (Sept. 25) at his home in Powder Springs, Georgia and charged with multiple felonies related to the possession of marijuana. Cobb County Sheriff's Office records show that the g-funk pioneer, born Delmar Arnaud, was booked in jail shortly after midnight Wednesday morning. He took out a bond to pay his $15,000 bail and was released this afternoon.
Dillinger faces 12 felony counts of possession of a controlled substance and one felony count listed as "Purchase, Possession, Manufacture, Distribution, or Sale Of Marijuana [sic]."
TMZ reports that police officers seized 117 grams of marijuana from Dillinger's home in addition to 10 THC pods, THC oil, one THC vaporizer and a container labeled "Cannabis Lean." The arrest comes four months after Dillinger told TMZ that Los Angeles police stopped him to ask about "this Kanye West shit" after Daz posted a since-deleted Instagram video suggesting that Crips "fuck Kanye up" in the wake of Yeezy's pro-Donald Trump statements. Days later, Dillinger released a Kanye diss track. He teased a sequel on Instagram earlier this week. View Dillinger's booking information below.
Daz jäänyt kiinni hatsista heti sen jälkeen kun herra on naureskellut somessa Suge Knightin kohtalolle.

Tha Chill has endured plenty of trials and tribulations throughout his 48 years. Growing up in Compton, he was subjected to the violence of every day street life and spent an ample amount of time behind bars.
As a member of Compton’s Most Wanted, Tha Chill crafted stories about what he witnessed on the daily alongside fellow core member MC Eiht. His salvation has always been music. It helped him realize there were other paths he could take in life that didn’t involve gang banging.
“I didn’t know anything else,” Tha Chill tells HipHopDX. “If this is what it is, and this is how I’m living, this is what I’m accustomed to. Meaning, I didn’t know anything else to even know better. You see what I’m saying?
“But through music, I was able to visit Boise or Nebraska or different places, and I’m like, ‘Oh okay. People are living different.’ Music saved my life. If it wasn’t for music, I wouldn’t know how people were living in these different places and know there were other options.”
Back in June, Eiht revealed a new CMW album was imminent. Now, Tha Chill has announced its title — Gangsta Business.
“Me and Eiht was just talking ’bout that, like, ‘When we gonna start giving it to them?'” he explains. “I’m like, ‘Man, let’s start hitting them with the videos and getting the word out for the inquirers.’ So, it’s lookin’ like March .”
The project follows Eiht’s critically acclaimed solo album, Which Way Iz West, which was executive produced by DJ Premier and featured a laundry list of notable MCs, including Kurupt, Bumpy Knuckles, The Outlawz and The Lady Of Rage.
Tha Chill — who also just released a solo album called 4Wit80 — assures CMW fans Gangsta Business will have that same kind of high-profile roster. Weazel Loc, Suga Free, Too $hort, Kurupt and the Geto Boys’ Big Mike are a few of the artist expected to make appearances.
“It’s the wow factor,” he says. “You wouldn’t expect Eiht to get it in like that. These days, it has to be something special about us. We older cats. For the new cats, they gotta be like, ‘What’s so dope about these old dudes?’ It’s dope that Lady of Rage and Bumpy Knuckles straight coming from Compton, you wouldn’t even imagine that.
“That’s what we up into. That’s why I think this new Gangsta Business from CMW gonna have a lot to offer as well.”
As for the sound, Tha Chill says, “We still keeping it gangsta.”
Compton's Most Wanted -räppiryhmästä tuttu Tha Chill kertoi tiistaina HipHopDX:lle uudesta albumista, joka kantaa nimeä "Gangsta Business'. Levyn pitäisi ilmestyä alustavasti ensi vuoden puolella maaliskuussa. Compton-räppäri paljasti myös vierailijalistasta löytyvän sellaisia nimiä kuin Big Mike, Suga Free, Too $hort ja Kurupt.

New Orleans -räppäri C-Murderin mahdollisuus uusintaoikeudenkäyntiin on kumottu, vaikka kaksi silminnäkijää peruivat lausuntonsa viime vuonna. Räppärin väitetään ampuneen Steven Thomasin vuonna 2002 Louisianan Harveyssa tapahtuneessa ampumavälikohtauksessa.
Corey Miller, the rapper known as C-Murder, failed this week in a bid to have his conviction for a 2002 killing in Harvey thrown out or retried, after a judge ruled that the recantations of two witnesses in the case were not credible.
Judge Steven Enright of 24th Judicial District Court ruled Wednesday that Miller, who was convicted in 2009 of fatally shooting Steven Thomas in a Harvey nightclub in 2002, did not meet the burden of proof for post-conviction relief.
Miller's attorney had argued that his conviction should be thrown out, or at least that he should be granted a hearing to argue the matter in court.
Citing precedents, Enright wrote that recantations of previous testimony "are highly suspicious" and rarely rise to the level necessary to grant a new trial.
Except in rare circumstances, he wrote, "a new trial should not be granted on the basis of a recantation because it is tantamount to perjury so as to discredit the witness at a later trial."
Miller's attorney, Paul Barker, could not be reached for comment about whether he will appeal the ruling.
Miller, 47, is the younger brother of Percy Miller, the rap mogul better known as Master P.
His high-profile case was thrown back into the spotlight in June when the true-crime television series "Reasonable Doubt" focused on it, interviewing two witnesses who have now changed their stories. The two also filed sworn affidavits to that effect on behalf of Corey Miller, who is serving life in prison.
Kenneth Jordan said he was lying when he told police he saw Miller stand over the 16-year-old Thomas during a brawl at the Platinum Club on Jan. 12, 2002, and fire a single shot into his chest. He said investigators had threatened to charge him with killing his infant son, whose death was under investigation at the time, if he didn’t identify Miller as the shooter. The child's mother was later convicted of that murder.
In his affidavit, Kenneth Jordan said he saw another man with a dark complexion in a hoodie shoot Thomas.
The other witness, a security guard named Darnell Jordan, told the program that he saw no gun in Miller's waistband during the fight that preceded the shooting and that he had been tricked into testifying against Miller.
On Wednesday, after months of legal filings from the defense and prosecutors with Jefferson Parish District Attorney Paul Connick's office, Enright ruled that Miller's defense hadn't made its case.
Enright wrote that Kenneth Jordan's claim that he was offered leniency by investigators on unrelated charges was not credible because he provided no evidence other than his word and that it had been refuted by investigators. He also said there were inaccuracies in Jordan's affidavit, including the fact that he was never actually arrested in relation to the death of his daughter.
Also, Enright wrote, Jordan's claim that he had told prosecutors in 2003 he had lied was vague and that had that happened, it would have been in the files from the first trial, which were disclosed after the verdict was overturned.
As for Darnell Jordan, Enright wrote that he testified consistently before the grand jury, at Miller's first trial in 2003, which was later overturned, and at the 2009 trial in which he was convicted again. That conviction was upheld on direct appeal.
He wrote that Darnell Jordan told a detective the night of the shooting that he saw Miller shoot Thomas before he began changing his story in subsequent interviews with investigators. Then when it came time to testify, Jordan returned to his initial account, explaining he had been afraid that one of Miller's friends could try to hurt him if he told the truth.
"This testimony goes against petitioner's claim that Darnell Jordan was tricked into testifying as he did," Enright wrote.
The two recantations were not the only points raised by Miller's defense in its petition, but they were the most recent claims to be added to it and garnered the most public attention.
Enright had already ruled that most of the issues raised, including Miller's claim of innocence and claims about his right to a fair trial having been violated, were not subject to review in a petition for post-conviction relief.
Two final claims — of ineffective assistance of counsel at trial and on appeal — were still open, and Enright denied those Wednesday as well. He wrote that none of the issues cited rose to the level of rendering Miller's representation deficient. Matters of which witnesses were and were not to called to testify, for example, were part of the defense's trial strategy and not grounds for relief, he wrote.
