ICYMI: Congress Launches Investigation Into Live Nation For Role In Astroworld Tragedy

Congress will launch an investigation into the Astroworld concert that claimed the lives of 10 people.

The House Oversight Committee hearing will focus on Live Nation’s role in the planning and safety of the November event. The committee is requesting information from the entertainment company by early January, with a briefing to follow.

CNN reported, in a letter to Live Nation, the congress committee said,

“Recent reports raise serious concerns about whether your company took adequate steps to ensure the safety of the 50,000 concertgoers who attended Astroworld Festival. The panel noted reports of inadequate security and medical staff at the venue, the placement of barricades, and a failure to heed warning signs.”

Travis Scott breaks his silence on all the events that occurred that fatal night in an exclusive interview with Power 105’s Charlamagne Tha God.

According to reports, what happened during Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival follows a long line of other tragic events involving Live Nation. The entertainment company has faced lawsuits over safety issues in the past.

Records on the OSHA website show that Live Nation has been fined or sued on a variety of issues over the past decade. Including an incident in 2018 when someone was struck in the head by a 6-foot metal post and hospitalized.

In an incident in 2012, an employee died after falling through a “false ceiling” on a stage. The person wasn’t wearing any safety belts or other protection.

Due to the horrific injuries and fatal casualties at Astroworld, Travis Scott, Drake, and Live Nation are currently named in multiple lawsuits upwards of two billion dollars.

ICYMI: Jay-Z Signs JAMLA's Reuben Vincent To Roc Nation

Jay-Z expands his Roc Nation roster with Reuben Vincent.

The label confirmed over the weekend that they have signed the 20-year-old rapper/producer Reuben Vincent. In a statement, the Charlotte native explained it has always been his dream to sign with Roc Nation and called the experience “so crazy.”

“Man, it’s so crazy like, I remember being a kid like 5 or 10 years old watching Fade to Black on TV seeing Hov sell out Madison Square Garden,” Reuben said.

“And then man, I remember getting on the bus and my friends asked me, ‘If you could ever sign a deal somebody, who would it be?’ And my first answer was Roc Nation.”

Vincent added, “To me, that was just a dream. But one thing I didn’t know back then, was that some dreams stay dreams and some dreams come true. Welcome to JamRoc.”

Reuben Vincent has released two projects with JAMLA Records including 2017s “Myers Park” and 2020’s “Boy Meets World.”

The “No Problems’ rapper took to twitter to share his gratitude. “Signing to Roc Nation is a dream come true…I’m honestly still soaking it all in. 4ever grateful and thankful. Now it’s time to do what I said I set out to do in this game. Hov, you got you one.”

Drakeo The Ruler's Mom Shares Details From A Witness Surrounding Fatal Stabbing

Drakeo The Ruler’s mother reveals details surrounding her son’s fatal stabbing.

During an interview with Rolling Stone, Darrylene Corniel shared that she plans to take legal action after her son Drakeo was fatally stabbed in the neck while at the Once Upon a Time in LA music festival.

Drakeo’s mom reveals new information was given to her by an alleged witness she’d spoken to. Corniel stated that there were about 40 to 60 people in the vicinity, and a large number of people reportedly arrived backstage around the same time as YG.

According to reports, the fatal stabbing of Drakeo the Ruler came amid an ongoing feud with fellow Los Angeles artist YG, and allegedly Drakeo threatened to kill him just months before this incident.

However, the investigating police nor anyone else has come forward to suggest YG was involved in the incident that led to Drakeo, 28, being fatally stabbed.

Corniel stated that her son was backstage with a small group of people, that included his younger brother, Devonte Caldwell, also known by Ralfy the Plug.

“Everything just happened so quickly,” Corniel told Rolling Stone. “They started trying to jump them.”

Drakeo’s mother shared that her younger son, Ralfy the Plug attempted to protect Drakeo to no avail.

“He was trying to fight, but when he turned around, he could see his brother with blood gushing out of him,” she explained. “He was like, ‘Did they stab you?’ It was like, there were so many of them.”

She added that because his death was reportedly ruled a homicide, she was not able to touch his deceased body.

“He was hit in his neck, I saw him when I went to the hospital.” “They said it’s a homicide, so I wasn’t able to hug him or kiss him or anything like that.” Corniel detailed, “I had to look at him through a window.”

Drakeo The Ruler’s mom made clear that she will not rest until she receives justice for her son, adding that she also plans to sue as she feels the venue’s security failed to do their job properly.

“We plan to sue,” she shared. “This happened backstage at an event. Someone has to be held accountable.”

The California Highway Patrol, which is leading the investigation, told reporters Sunday night “there’s nothing credible” to suggest any of the other performers at the Once Upon a Time in LA music festival were involved.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu Dead at Age 90 | The Source

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has passed away at age 90. The Nobel Peace Prize-winning cleric was a leader of the movement to end apartheid in South Africa.

Archbishop Tutu battled various illnesses for years and was admitted to the hospital multiple times. An official cause of death has not been mentioned.

South African President Cyril RAmaphosa called Tutu “a patriot without equal” in a statement to CNN:

“A man of extraordinary intellect, integrity and invincibility against the forces of apartheid, he was also tender and vulnerable in his compassion for those who had suffered oppression, injustice and violence under apartheid, and oppressed and downtrodden people around the world.”

In his life’s work, Tutu was instrumental at the end of apartheid, which was an official policy of racial segregation. Once apartheid ended, Tutu assumed the rule of the chair of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, aside from the recently freed Nelson Mandela who became president.

“He was larger than life, and for so many in South Africa and around the world his life has been a blessing,” the Nelson Mandela Foundation said in a statement. “His contributions to struggles against injustice, locally and globally, are matched only by the depth of his thinking about the making of liberatory futures for human societies.”

President Barack Obama referred to Archbishop Tutu as a “mentor” in a statement. He awarded Archbishop Tutu with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.

“Archbishop Tutu was grounded in the struggle for liberation and justice in his own country, but also concerned with injustice everywhere. He never lost his impish sense of humor and willingness to find humanity in his adversaries,” said Obama.

Lil Jon Says Busta Rhymes Would "Smoke" Jay-Z in VERZUZ

JAY-Z appeared in a Twitter Spaces conversation with Alicia Keys Tuesday night. Rob Markman asked him would he ever take the VERZUZ stage, and JAY-Z made his stance loud and clear: “No one can stand on that stage with me.”

Hov would add, ” “It’s not a chance in hell that anyone can stand on that stage with me.”

“No one can stand on that stage with me. It’s not a chance in hell that anyone can stand on that stage with me.”

Hearing that comment, Lil Jon hit social media and shared his opinion. “BUSTA WILL SMOKE JAY Z,” he wrote to Hollywood Unlocked.

In September, Fat Joe appeared on Instagram Live and revealed that while fans want to see Busta Rhymes on the VERZUZ stage, it may not happen anytime soon. Joe states everyone is scared of Busta.

“Busta Rhymes has a problem with a Verzuz. Fat Joe scared to do Verzuz against Busta Rhymes and so is everybody else,” Fat Joe said. “You gotta understand, sometimes you ever notice, you see boxers and they knock everybody out? People be scared to fight those boxers. Busta Rhymes is gonna out-rap, out-perform anybody that goes up in the Verzuz with him. That’s a fact!”

Last year, Busta Rhymes was actively looking for a VERZUZ battle. After a possible battle with T.I. came and went, Busta spoke with Complex and revealed he would also be up for a battle with Eminem, Lil Wayne, and JAY-Z. Even more, he said he would take on more than one artist at one time.

$100 Billion in Covid Relief Funds Through PPP Loans

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the government has made a surplus of financial relief available. A new report notes criminals have made off with nearly $100 billion of that relief.

According to CNBC, the Secret Service noted the stolen funds come from fraudsters of the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program, the Economic Injury Disaster Loan program, and an additional program to assist in unemployment funds nationwide.

Over $2.3 billion stolen funds have been recovered, leading to the arrest of over 100 suspects, ranging from organized groups to single individuals. Since the pandemic’s start, the government has distributed $3.5 billion in Covid relief money.

The Secret Service has nominated Assistant Special Agent in Charge Roy Dotson to the position of National Pandemic Fraud Recovery Coordinator to manage the fraud cases across the nation.

“I’ve been in law enforcement for over 29 years and worked some complex fraud investigations for 20 plus years, and I’ve never seen something at this scale,” Dotson said.

“There’s no doubt that the programs were easily accessible online. And so, with that, comes the opportunity for bad actors to get into that mix,” he said. “It was necessary to try to get these funds out to people that were truly hurting, and no fault of anybody.”
