Meek Mill Reportedly Arrested By NYPD On Instagram Live

New York, NY – Meek Mill is reportedly in police custody after being arrested for reckless endangerment late Thursday night (August 17). He was stopped on 10th Avenue and Dyckman in New York City for riding his dirt bike through the streets. The interaction with police was caught on incident that was caught on Instagram Live.

In the video, Meek can be heard asking, “What I do?”

The ficer responds, “You weren’t riding on a motorcycle yesterday? Yesterday, right? I got pictures you, I got videos you running up and down.”

Meek replies, “I just came from a basketball game. I just want to know my rights.”

He’s then asked to get out the car and the audio gets a little muddled before Meek is heard discussing the situation with whoever else was in the car.

The incident was provoked by a since-deleted Instagram post Meek made on Wednesday (August 16) that showed him riding bikes and quads through the 34th precinct without a helmet, which reportedly violated traffic laws.

He is apparently being held at the 34th precinct awaiting his arraignment.

The Wins & Losses rapper was in town to perform on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon!.

Chris Brown Goes Into Graphic Detail About Night He Beat Rihanna

Chris Brown opens up about the night he assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna in a new documentary titled Chris Brown: Welcome To My Life. The R&B megastar explains he met her for the first time when he was 15 years old backstage at a New York concert and that their relationship soon blossomed into a “fairytale.”

Two years later, the fairytale came to a screeching halt when Brown confessed he’d had sex with a particular woman before they were together, losing RiRi’s trust. “From there it went downhill,” Brown said.

On February 8, 2009, he says a fight between the couple broke out in his Lamborghini after she went through his text messages and found a message from someone he was involved with in the past. Brown claims the Barbados-born singer said she hated him and began to hit him.

“I remember she tried to kick me, but then I really hit her, with a closed fist, like I punched her,” Brown said. “I busted her lip. When I saw it, I was in shock. I was like, ‘Fuck, why the hell did I hit her?’ From there, she just spit in my face … like spit blood in my face and it enraged me even more. It was a real on fight in the car.”

Brown said he tried to calm things down, but she was trying to throw his cell phone out the car window. “She grabbed my neck and when she do that, I actually bite her arm as I’m driving,” he continued. “It’s just like a petty fight.”

Towards the end the interview, he explains they were both in tears as he swore to her he was telling the truth. After taking his keys, she got out the car and screamed, “He’s trying to kill me.”

The rest is history. Brown was convicted for felony assault soon after the incident and sentenced to five years probation. The photo Rihanna’s injuries has been widely circulated over the years, something Brown still has difficulties seeing.

“That’s not me, bro,” he says. “I hate it to this day. That’s going to haunt me forever.”

Meet Hamster: the latest masked producer on the scene

Inspired by the illusion rapidly moving forward only to discover one’s stuck in the proverbial hamster wheel comes Hamster, Los Angeles’ newly rising mysteriously masked-producer.

Debuting the solo moniker live just last month July 8 at LA’s Troubador alongside local collaborators Ari, Lee, LeyeT, and Serena Foster comes a electronic pop heavy masked figure who— here at Dancing Astronaut— is raising a lot questions.

First and foremost, why the hamster head?

While Hamster’s been producing pop and EDM tracks for rising stars in the LA scene now over the last few years, the artist only began releasing his own tracks under the unbeknownst solo moniker in August  last year.

Digging through the artist’s YouTube yields his earliest video below featuring Tosh, titled “Anthem Of The Summer,” a club-ready track which after listening through is indeed living up to its name.

Landing on Spotify’s Viral Hits playlist with his song, “City Limits” and at number eight on the streaming giant’s United States Viral 50 back in April, it’s clear Hamster’s wheels have been spinning for quite some time now.

Sixteen videos currently grace his YouTube page including a stellar track entitled, “City Limits” and a new song featuring longtime LA-based artist Serena Foster titled “On The Run,” that was released just last week.

Watch the two videos for those tracks below, and be sure to keep an eye out for this Hamster who will likely be rotating the musical release wheel again soon.

50 Cent Claims STARZ Thinks He Leaked "Power" Episodes

New York, NY – There’s a new wrinkle in the antagonistic relationship between 50 Cent and STARZ.

The G-Unit head honcho, who produces Power and portrays one its main characters, says the premium cable channel blames him for leaking the final three episodes the hit show’s fourth season.

“STARZ thinks I leaked my own show,” he wrote on Instagram. “anyway if you have on demand catch POWER tonight 12:00AM. If not Sunday 9:00PM it is LOL #50Centralbet.”

50’s claim comes on the heels him expressing discontent with STARZ over their handling the TV series. The network refused to give the show two extra episodes for its fourth season, which did not sit well with the veteran MC.

“I woke up feeling a little different about POWER this morning,” he wrote on Instagram in July. “If the biggest show on your net work doesn’t mean anything, what does your network mean STARZ? I’m taking my talents to south beach fuck this.”

While 50 might be frustrated, leaking episodes his own show would be taking it to a new level. STARZ is still looking for the culprit and plans to take legal action against them.

“The final three episodes Power’s fourth season were leaked online due to a breach the press screening room,” a STARZ spokesperson said in a statement issued on August 9. “This seems to be a case password sharing that resulted in homemade videos the episodes which were taped f a TV screen and posted online. STARZ has begun forensic investigations and will take legal action against the responsible parties.”

STARZ Vows Legal Action Over Leaked "Power" Episodes

In the age the internet, leaks television shows have become increasingly commonplace, and the latest series to fall victim to a hacker is STARZ drama Power.

This week, the final three episodes Power’s current fourth season leaked online in a less-than-sophisticated way.

The episodes appeared on Facebook, shared by someone who claimed to have gotten a password to the press screening website where members the media get early access, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The man filmed himself watching the episodes on a cracked iPhone, all the while providing occasional commentary and at one point filming his own face, according to Torrent Freak.

Given the severity the leak the final Power episodes, STARZ has launched an investigation into the matter. They also revealed their plans to take legal action against those responsible.

“The final three episodes Power’s fourth season were leaked online due to a breach the press screening room,” a STARZ spokesperson said. “This seems to be a case password sharing that resulted in homemade videos the episodes which were taped f a TV screen and posted online. STARZ has begun forensic investigations and will take legal action against the responsible parties.”

As the network begins its investigation for the Power perps, they have since taken down their press portal.

Executive produced by rapper 50 Cent, Power premiered in 2014, and has already received the green light for a fifth season. Earlier this year, it was reported that Power is second only to HBO behemoth Game Of Thrones in premium cable show ratings.
