Rapper 21 Savage was released from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody. The rapper, whose birth name is She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, is a citizen of the United Kingdom who entered the United States legally in July 2005 and failed to depart under the terms of a nonimmigrant visa, ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said.

Netflix show Trigger Warning With Killer Mike, the rapper-turned-public personality goes to extreme lengths to shed light on systemic issues, often leading him to off-the-wall solutions, from creating educational porn to founding a sovereign nation within the US.
I really enjoy the fact that we came to Netflix with a good idea, and they had the faith in us to say, “We’re going to strip this idea all the way down.” It’s going to be Michael Moore-ish, in the way that I am the main character actually engaging the public. And I thought that added a swagger or an “in-your-faceness,” like early In Living Color or Chappelle’s Show. It brought a perspective that people hadn’t thought of, and Netflix allowed us to go in the world and do it.

Chris Brown is taking some extreme precautionary measures to assure his safety on the road. According to TMZ, the Heartbreak On A Full Moonsinger just bought a brand new Rezvani Tank that cost him $350,000 dollars.
Looking like a tank out of a superhero movie, the khaki-colored, bulletproof vehicle is indeed street legal and features a plethora of crazy accessories, including smoke screens, thermal night vision capability, which is viewable on the display screen, electric door handles to shock any approaching intruders, and easy deployable defensive spike strips, among other things. In addition, the vehicle can also withstand multiple rounds from automatic weapons too. In other words, it’s pretty much a war tank that’s street legal.
