Trey Songz Slapped With Probation For Detroit Concert Meltdown

Detroit, MI – Don’t touch Trey Songz’s microphone. If he’s taking too long, just let him continue without any problems. That was the 32-year-old singer’s message during his explosive Detroit tantrum that saw him ripping up the Joe Louis Arena stage in December 2016. A police ficer was also injured during the episode.

Despite the serious nature the incident, Trigga Trey reportedly walked out court on Friday (August 18) with 18 months probation after pleading guilty to two misdemeanor charges disturbing the peace. He must also attend anger management classes and submit to drug tests.

According to Wayne County prosecutors, in accordance with Trey’s plea, charges aggravated assault, and resisting and obstructing a police ficer were dismissed.

Video the occurrence shows a visually agitated Trey practically taunting the event staff while performing.

“If they cut me f remember it, and text whoever you want to and tweet whoever you want to about it,” he says to the crowd. “Because if a nigga cut me f, I’m going the fuck crazy.”

After telling the staff to cut him f, the footage then shows him throwing equipment around the stage in the dark after the event staff evidently pulled the plug. He was later arrested for resisting and malicious destruction property.

Trigga Trey tweeted “Glory be to God” on Twitter early Friday after the arraignment.

Shaq Throws More Shade At LaVar Ball

It appears that Shaq Diesel’s diss track toward LaVar Ball last month wasn’t the last word in the rivalry. Shaq came back this weekend with more shade for the head the Big Baller Brand.

Shaq spent some time spinning records at the Rehab Pool Party at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas this past weekend. DJ Whoo Kid, one the pioneers Hip Hop’s mixtape scene, was in attendance. He asked Shaq about the progress his beef with Ball. “I don’t even know who that is … Never heard him,” Shaq responded. Whoo Kid jumped in with his own words on the subject. “Fuck that nigga,” he added.

“He heard us though,” Shaq said, smiling.

In July, Shaq released a three-minute diss track toward Ball where he talked about his basketball skills and the Big Baller Brand. He brought up recent words from Ball, who made it clear that he felt he could beat Shaq in basketball.

“You beatin’ me? That’s a bunch bologna/You think you Mailman, you ain’t even Jeff Malone,” he responded. Toward the end the track, Shaq traded in disses for compliments as he let Ball know just how good his kids are at basketball.  “You’ve done a great job, I love how your sons play/ And lil ‘Melo too, attitude hella cool/ Jumper wet wet like two thots in a pool,” he admitted.

Ball responded to Shaq’s song by calling him old and irrelevant.

Can someone set up the one-on-one match already?

Parookaville proves itself as a true European festival contender

Something special just happened outside Düsseldorf: Germany’s largest electronic music festival, . The festival just had its third annual anniversary, and it was, in a word, insane.

Parookaville proves itself as a true European festival contender

Founded in 2014, Parookaville has had great success in delivering the world’s biggest DJs straight to Germany’s largest dance music scene. This year, the ground served home to more than 80,000 attendees, complete with 10 stages and more than 200 artists on the lineup.

As one Europe’s largest electronic music festivals, it was interesting to compare the experience here to that American festivals. In comparing a festival like Parookaville to something like or even , some obvious differences were apparent.

One big difference seems to be drug use. I don’t know if it’s Germany’s love  beer as an alternative, but I was shocked at how few drugs were being consumed at Parookaville. Speaking solely for American festivals, almost every attendee can share some kind story by weekend’s end where they witnessed someone at the festival deep in a “K-Hole” or heard a friend buying “fake molly.” In Germany, however, I did not witness a single person noticeably intoxicated on drugs. After making a note this at the end the day one, I chalked it up to “Germans love beer” and maybe I just didn’t see enough the festival yet. Stiff security, maybe? Wrong. Parookaville had some the most lax — yet most pressional — workers I’ve ever seen at a festival. Aside from a group friends who posed as “stage crew,” only to be almost immediately busted during the artist’s set, the weekend went without any major hiccups. Note to “stage crew”: if you’re going to make it in, don’t give yourself up by jumping on stage and trying to dance with . Parookaville provided a fun and safe atmosphere for all, and it was so memorable. Music lovers came out to truly listen and enjoy.

Parookaville provided a great environment for a festival, combining both immaculate and historic grounds, with a stacked and diverse lineup. Parookaville proves itself as a true European festival contenderWhile the lineup was techno-heavy, it catered to many other genres electronic music as well, including what possibly might be one the most epic bass-heavy stage days we’ve seen yet, thanks to BOOTSHAUS. Check out the lineup (at right) just for Saturday alone.

If you’re looking for that festival “second-wind” in an industry that is always searching for new and fresh material, Parookaville is the answer. In their third installment, they truly have built something special in the hills  Germany.

One major thing to note about Parookaville was the stellar production quality their live stream and set replays. Quite honestly, this may be the best-looking live stream I’ve ever seen. From the camera work to the quality the stream, I haven’t seen many that can compare with the job their production team did this year. Bravo! MagentaMusik 360 provided full coverage for Parookaville 2017 and a select number set replays can be found .
