TheSource Feed - Sat, 05/27/2017 - 2:07pm

During a recent sit down with NME, Migos and Lil Yachty  launched the debate over who is the greatest rapper of all time.

“For me, personally I could give it to [André 3000], man. Because I like him that much as a rapper,” said Offset. While Takeoff responded with: “Since you said 3K…Kendrick Lamar.”

Quavo, on the other hand, picked Jay Z. “I kind of respected the fact that my mans Jay Z is the greatest rapper right now, bro,” he said. “Straight up. You can’t mess with Jay when it’s time to come play. On some real shit, it took me a couple years to grow and understand that Jay is the guy.”

Yachty agreed with Takeoff’s choice, saying, “I ain’t gonna lie, though, I’m giving it to Kendrick, man.”

TABOO FALLS OUT WITH FERGIE OVER LABEL SWITCH

A Georgia Man Will Spend 10 Years Behind Bars Despite A Not Guilty Verdict

TheSource Feed - Sat, 05/27/2017 - 9:10am

Ramad Chatman was found not guilty after standing trial for an armed robbery at a Georgia convenience store, but will still spend 10 years in prison.

In 2014, the Lucky Lotto convenience store in Northern Georgia was robbed as an assailant held the clerk at gunpoint.

A dirty storefront and grainy video footage made it virtually impossible to establish any link to the actual robber.

All that witnesses could give investigators was that the attacker was “a black man in dark clothes.”

Sometime in 2015, after scrolling the Facebook, the clerk saw a photo of Ramad Chatman.

“It triggered something in me, and it just made me freak out,” she said of the photo.

Chatman, already on probation following his connection to a previous robbery, soon turned himself in on the pretense of ruling himself out of the investigation, as he professed his innocence.

He was put on trial.

Initially, Chatman attempted to enter an Alford plea deal where the defendant enters a guilty plea, but maintains their innocence because despite this, they feel they will lose at trial.

The judge presiding over the case refused the deal.

By the end of the trial the jury found Chatman not guilty of the charges of armed robbery and aggravated assault, however Judge John Niedrach had a differing opinion.

While the prosecution failed to convince the jury that Chatman committed the crime and there was never any concrete evidence outside of the clerk’s testimony that connected Chatman to the crime, Judge Niedrach was convinced that his implication was likely.

As a result, Chatman’s probation for a 2012 robbery in which a $120 television was stolen was revoked, and he is now serving a 10-year sentence for the original crime.

“Someone is suffering the consequence of this and it might be the wrong person,” said Mark Issa, attorney and legal analyst. “In fact, 12 jurors did not believe it was the right person.”

Had he never been arrested for the Lucky Lotto robbery, Ramad Chatman’s 5-year probation would have been complete in July.

Roc Nation & Grand Hustle’s Brandon Rossi Is Following Kanye West’s Blueprint For Success

TheSource Feed - Fri, 05/26/2017 - 4:49pm

Artist and producer Brandon Rossi is taking a similar route that Kanye West took year years ago: becoming a producer and then killing the game as an artist.

The Decatur, GA native was first profiled by The Source back in 2014  and like cake in the oven, he’s only continued to rise.

In his interview with The Source back in 2014, Rossi said that a friend once asked him what label he’d sign with if he had the opportunity to choose one. He told him that one day he envision himself signing with Jay-Z or Kanye West. His dreams came true in 2013, when he signed to RocNation as a writer/producer. “You can do anything in life as long as you truly believe in yourself,” he said back then.

Appearing on an episode of Scoop B Radio last week, Rossi expanded more on his growth.

“I come from a musical background,” Rossi told Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson. “My family played instruments and I kind of took it to college where I met a lot of people who were doing music.”

 

“I happened to meet Rico Love when I went to college and just from hanging in Atlanta, meeting people like Pierre Medor and began to just study and just nerve people and I used to bother them every day because I wanted to make beats because nobody wanted to give me beats so eventually I just learned to do it on my own. From there I just kept on practicing my skills with people in Atlanta just producing music and working on my skills and I did a couple records with Mase, I got on a couple Gangsta Grillz, I was just going in as hard as I could and eventually it landed me where I’m at right now.”

(Video) Miami Dolphins’ Neville Hewitt & Boomtown Fitness’ Eric Salvary Training In Offseason

TheSource Feed - Fri, 05/26/2017 - 4:05pm

The football offseason workouts sets the tone for the NFL’s regular season. The Miami Dolphins linebacker Neville Hewitt is making moves and has done so quietly every summer. The collaboration of local New Jersey football guru Ron James and Bootown Fitness’ Eric Salvary, while working out with Hewitt’s college teammate, Arnold Blackmon, out in New Jersey.

Hewitt stays game ready!

Hewitt started two games in 2015 and five last season while never missing a game overall. During his first season he played 53 more snaps on defense. But his special teams play must have stood out warranting the extra 67 snaps gained this season.

That’s a testament to a good support system.
