On this day in 1999, Mobb Deep released their fourth LP, Murda Muzik. Coming after a three year pause and numerous release date push-backs, Murda Muzik did everything but disappoint. Peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart and shipping 1,000,000 copies in the year of its release prove that commercially this album was a success. The album also earned the #6 spot on the Canadian album charts.
Aside from its monetary success, the album was a hit. During a time in rap where Diddy and Master P were calling the shots a project of this caliber came with much surprise and admiration. Havoc and Prodigy‘s stark realism and imagery depicting the darker side of humor nature in the streets brought necessary contrast to a game flooded with gold watch/diamond chain rap. Havoc’s style of production, although majority unchanged from his previous work, was also a shift away from the norm of the ’99 to the 2000. This album has most definitely earned its respect and acclaim.
Kim Kardashian stopped by the Ellen Degeneres Show today [April 27] and revealed how much the robbery in Paris last year changed her life.
I mean, I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me. I, like, don’t want to start crying, but I feel like that was so meant to happen to me. Like, I’m such a different person. It was meant to happen to me. I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things.
Kim went on to explain that she isn’t as materialistic as she once was, and is happy that this version of her will be raising North and Saint Wests.
I’m so happy that my kids get this me and that this is who I’m raising my kids. Because I just don’t care about that stuff anymore, you know? I really don’t.
Kodak Black was found guilty of violating his house arrest and may be going back to jail for up to eight years.
Kodak had several violations including going to a strip club without his probation officer’s permission and allegedly assaulting a bartender. However, a witness testified on Kodak’s behalf saying he didn’t assault anyone and that he actually got assaulted when the bartender grabbed his genitals according to UpRoxx.
He also violated house arrest by appearing in Miami-Dade strip club for Adrien Broner’s boxing, again without his probation officer’s permission. His failure to complete anger management classes after getting kicked out of a session for excessively burping was also a violating of his probation. But thats not the worse part — he allegedly grabbed the counselor to prevent her from calling the police when he refused to leave.
Judge Thomas M. Lynch made the ruling on Wednesday [April 26], which came as a shock to some. Considering that he had a witness who cleared him of one situation, and he claimed the Miami-Dade strip club appearance was work related.
The “Tunnel Vision” rapper has been behind bars since February, and we have to wait until May 4th to find out the verdict.

Delaware police remain in a standoff with a man connected to the fatal shooting a state trooper Wednesday, authorities said.
The suspect has been barricaded inside a Middletown, Del., home for nearly 12 hours, as authorities try coaxing him to surrender.
Cops said they blew out several windows of the home, but haven’t been able to enter it yet.
The man is armed, police said, and has fired at authorities into this morning.
He’s one of two people connected with the Wednesday afternoon shooting of Cpl. Stephen J. Ballard at a nearby Wawa convenience store.
Two suspects pulled up to the store in Bear, Del., around noon Wednesday, cops said. One got out of a car, let off several shots and took off.
Ballard, 32, was struck and rushed to a hospital where he later died, Delaware State Police said.
A motive for the shooting hasn’t been disclosed.
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter said Wednesday that her planned speech at the University of California at Berkeley this week was canceled amid mounting concerns about potentially violent protests.
Coulter said in an email that the Young America’s Foundation canceled her appearance scheduled for Thursday, ordering her not to go to the Berkeley campus. The university realized that the group “wasn’t serious and dropped ongoing negotiations over a room,” she wrote. “Everyone who should be for free speech has turned tail and run.”
The university sent a message to the campus community Wednesday in the midst of uncertainty over whether, or when, Coulter might come to campus. After the university originally canceled her speech for Thursday and instead invited her to speak there next week, Coulter had vowed to speak anyway; with the university not offering a venue, campus Republican groups had been discussing her possibly appearing on a public plaza, where security would have been challenging.
Before Coulter’s cancellation, the university was girding for potentially violent protests on campus on Thursday, when she was expected to give a speech, potentially on Sproul Plaza, a sprawling open area known for gatherings and demonstrations.
United Airlines will offer passengers up to $10,000 (£7,700) for giving up their seats on overbooked flights as part of its efforts to repair the damage to its reputation after widespread condemnation over the forcible removal of a passenger.
An inquiry was launched after footage recorded by passengers at Chicago O’Hare airport and watched by millions globally showed David Dao, 69, being yanked from his seat on a Louisville-bound flight to make room for crew.
According to his lawyer, Dao lost two front teeth, incurred concussion and broke his nose. The Vietnamese American physician found the experience “more horrifying and harrowing” than the fall of Saigon, his lawyer said.
n Wednesday, United’s reputation suffered another blow after a potentially record-breaking giant rabbit died in its care. The 3ft (90cm) animal, called Simon, was found dead in the cargo hold when the flight arrived at O’Hare airport from London Heathrow, and an investigation has since been launched.
The offer of increased compensation came after rival Delta outlined plans to offer up to $9,950 in such cases.
United said it would “increase customer compensation incentives for voluntary denied boarding up to $10,000”, and also promised action to reduce overbooking and improve customer satisfaction.
“Our goal is to reduce incidents of involuntary denial of boarding to as close to zero as possible and become a more customer-focused airline,” the carrier said.
United also said it would no longer call police to stop passengers boarding, nor would passengers who were seated be required to give up their place on overbooked flights.
Crews would be booked on flights 60 minutes before departure, and staff would undergo annual training to handle “the most difficult situations”, an inquiry report said.
United will also adopt a “no questions asked” policy on permanently lost baggage from June, paying customers $1,500 for the value of the bag and its contents.
Baton Rouge rapper Kevin Gates, who canceled a New Orleans performance in October due to “unforeseen incarceration,” knows where he’ll be spending the next 30 months: In prison.
That’s the sentence Gates received Wednesday on a felony gun possession charge in a 2013 Illinois case.
The Cook County Sheriff’s Office in Illinois says Kevin appeared in court Wednesday and pled guilty to his original charge of felony gun possession. Remember, the outstanding weapons-related warrant popped up the same day he completed his sentence in Florida for kicking a woman in the face at one of his shows.
The warrant was issued because Kevin failed to appear in court for the 2013 case.
We’re told Kevin, who has been in jail since March 30, will be transferred to the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Kevin Gate’s charges carried a max of 10 years in prison. So, he made out good with the 30-months!
