Rapper Gunplay on Dropped Charges: "First Thing I Am Going to Do Today Is Smoke a Joint"

Categories: Crime, Music News
Gunplay is off da hook.
Sometimes you end up in the wrong place, at the wrong time, with the wrong people. And subsequently arrested, tried, and sent up the river for being a shmuck who couldn't prove they were innocent even though they were.

Other times, criminals get away with shit in broad daylight. This is usually due to a technicality.

When it comes to Def Jam and Maybach Music Group recording artist (and Carol City native) Gunplay (a.k.a. Richard Morales Jr.) and his recent assault charges, it seems like the Teflon Don padawan is all about door number two. More »



Rick Ross: Grammy Week, Stepping Into Rival Turf, and Accepting Death

Fuck a hater
Rozay's Bentley ate a clip full bullets last week, and the man made a song, hired an arsenal of mercenaries, and stepped into the home turf of the guy whose name he stole.

Grammy weekend is here, and Rick Ross is gonna either live or die in L.A.

We expect he'll grab an award or two, smoke some of Cali's finest, and be back home in time for lunch at Wing Stop.

Charles Manson Writes Marilyn Manson and Five Other of the Madman's Top Musical Moments

Categories: Crime
Alongside Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger pathetically begging Hell's Angels beating the shit out of hippies to "cool it" at the disastrous Altamont Free Concert of 1969, Charles Manson is the ultimate symbol of flower-power corroding, fermenting, and rotting until it transformed into the nihilistic sleaze of the 1970s.

Sure, free love, drugs, etc. sounds great on paper. And, honestly, it looks pretty good in practice, too. But what happens when megalomania and mental illness team up with psychedelic libertarianism? A big fucking mess, that's what.

Thankfully, Manson has been locked up in San Quentin Prison ever he was convicted for the heinous murders he orchestrated with his brainwashed goons, The Family.

Every now and then, though, Ol' Charley ends up back on the pop culture radar. Most recently, the cult leader and serial killer was trending on Da Goog for writing a completely incomprehensible letter to perennial goth rocker, Marilyn Manson. This isn't the first time the sick sad world of C. Manson has overlapped with that of the music industry.

After the jump, check out Charlie Manson's Top 5 Musical Moments. More »

Harley Flanagan, Cro-Mags Founder, Goes on Stabbing and Biting Rampage

He used to be such a sweet hardcore kid

News sources have been reporting on Cro-Mags founder and bassist, Harley Flanagan, going on an inspired stabbing and biting melee in the VIP area of the Webster Hall during the CBGB Festival this past July 6. The 42-year old punk rocker, MMA enthusiast, and Krishna follower supposedly gained access to the VIP section of the venue with his CBGB pass that he was entitled to use thanks in part to a panel discussion he had been a part of the day prior.

All this PMA allegedly stems from his exclusion from performing with the Cro-Mags during this particular festival and to try and explain how this band has juggled lineups since its inception in 1981 would be far too long-winded for these digital pages. We can just assume that at this moment, Flanagan is probably not getting along with John Joseph and that only one version of the Cro-Mags is performing.

The two victims of Flanagan's attack are William Berario who received a cut above his eye as well as bites on the face (Bath salts? Weed? Cannibalism du jour?) and current Cro-Mags bass player, Michael "The Gook" Couls. Coincidence? Hmmm...

Willie Nelson, John Forté, and Other Musicians Busted With Drugs

I Love Weed
​What do all the Beatles, George Michael, and Lil Wayne have in common? At one point or another, they've been busted with dope. 

The list of musicians who have been accused of drug-related crimes is staggering. And since this week's cover story is about the cocaine-related conviction of Grammy-winning reggae Buju Banton, it seems fitting to take a look at a few notable cases of the musically inclined getting caught with mind-altering substances.

Machine Gun Kelly Leaves Fort Lauderdale and Gets Arrested: Criminal Foreshadowing in Videos

Categories: Crime, Music News
Thumbnail image for mgkpromopic.jpg
He's thinking, "Stupid, stupid, stupid."

Just last Thursday, County Grind attended a particularly wild concert that included some near-nudity, stage diving, and lots of masturbation chatter. The show was that of Machine Gun Kelly, the Cleveland rapper whose gift is his ability to spit out lyrics as fast as, well, a machine gun.

After the rapper left Fort Lauderdale, he and his crew headed to Orlando, and then Saint Pete, where he ended up in a jail cell. According to MTV and Twitter, it was in the slammer that MGK uncovered that the inmates recognized him. That was probably pretty neat and fortuitous for an up-and-coming, strikingly skinny, rowdy, white-guy rapper. He was charged with disorderly conduct and released on bail.

Let's take a minute to watch a few MGK videos that foreshadow last night's events. They hint at a lifestyle that is, you know, criminal.

DJ Laz's Gun Connected With Miramar Murder-Suicide

Categories: Crime
Damn, chico! DJ Laz, the man who kept much of South Florida sane and entertained during our commutes, is connected with a murder-suicide that occurred last weekend. Our news-breaking brothers at Riptide reported that "The gun used in the Sunday murder-suicide was Laz's semiautomatic small-caliber pistol. [Laz] contacted police after hearing about the incident and discovering that one of his guns had gone missing."

Lazaro Mendez has been a staple on South Florida radio for decades. His classic Mega Mixes and Traffic Jams set the standard for Miami house-party DJs. His work with Pitbull, Gloria Estefan, and 1-800 Need Help TV spots have increased his profile in the past ten years.

Outkast's Big Boi Arrested for Drug Possession in Miami (Mug Shot)

Categories: Crime
No, Big Boi was not carrying any assault rifles at the time of arrest.
Outkast's Big Boi was arrested in Miami Sunday afternoon facing felony drug possession charges, according to Miami-Dade Corrections. According to TMZ, the rapper (real name Antwan Patton) was busted by customs and border patrol when exiting a cruise with his family and the other half of Outkast, Andre 3000.

Update: He has since been released.

His partner in rhyme famously rapped "No drugs or alcohol so I can get the signal clear as day" back on the duo's 1996 hit "ATLiens" and has kept that a part of his lifestyle ever since, but Daddy Fat Sax reportedly had controlled substances MDMA powder, ecstasy pills, and Viagra (no prescription) on his person. Each carries a separate charge of possession of a controlled substance, and he was additionally charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Aggravated-Battery Suspect Brisco Throws Birthday Party

Well, if there's any doubt as to why Opa-Locka rapper Brisco is running from the cops, just check out his Facebook page. Late last week, it was reported that the past DJ Khaled and Lil Wayne collaborator was sought in connection with the beating of an 18-year-old man.

Updated 4:55 p.m.: Brisco turned himself in to North Miami Police on Monday.

Since then, though, photos of Brisco celebrating his own birthday have emerged.

Brisco, real name British Alexander Mitchell, reportedly "began to pummel [the victim], to beat him, strike him, punch him, knocking him unconscious and sending him to the hospital," according to North Miami police. According to the man, who has since been released from the hospital, Brisco then fled in a white Range Rover... to an undisclosed bunker filled with crepe paper and party hats.
