Bobby Shmurda's Trial Delayed Until May

Will Brooklyn's Bobby Shmurda ever get out?

Bobby Shmurda has been waiting on a trial for 419 days after being arrest all the way back on December 17, 2014. He has appealed his $2 million bail seven times since then, but the judge has denied him his bail each time.
Now the Brooklyn emcee has hit yet another obstacle to freedom, albeit a slightly different one than reducing his bail. Judge Abraham Clott, who took the case on after previous Judge James Burke left in January, has decided to split up the group of men arrested in conjunction with Shmurda and try them on different dates.
The original February 22 date will now only be a trail for Rashid “Rasha” Derrisant and Alex “A-Rod” Crandon. A second trial date has been set for May 11, during which Ackquille Pollard (real name of Bobby Shmurda), Chad “Rowdy Rebel” Marshall, Santino “Cueno” Boderick and Nicolas “Montana Flea” McCoy will appear before the court.
It’s unclear if the split has to do with which charges are being brought against which parties, or if the involvement and severity of sentencing will be reduced for one group. Shmurda is being charged with conspiracy to commit murder in the second degree, reckless endangerment, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of criminally using drug paraphernalia.
Previously, there was hope that Wu-Tang album owner Martin Shkreli would bail the rapper out, but since his arrest by the FBI those plans have been put on hold.

CONFIRMED!!! Will Smith Says "Bad Boys 3" Is "Definitely" Happening

Will Smith drops a bombshell in his interview.

“Bad Boys II” is undoubtedly a classic action film. Michael Bay directed the movie in all his explosive glory, with stars Will Smith and Marin Lawrence providing excellent chemistry that carried the plot through more than a few holes. However, despite rumors and fans clamoring for more, the 2003 action film has never been slated for a sequel. That is, until we heard it from the horse’s mouth.
Will Smith appeared on a BBC Radio 1Xtra show and spoke on a number of topics, but most importantly he had this to say about recently reconnecting with his old co-star Martin Lawrence: I saw Martin [Lawrence] a few weeks ago," Smith retold, "I haven't seen him in about two years. We looked at each other. We hugged. In that moment, we knew we were making another Bad Boys. We're definitely doing another one.”
Somehow (how??) the host doesn’t ask any follow up questions about that bombshell, but we’re inclined to believe Smith can make it happen with his incredibly deep pocketbooks. A quick look at IMDB reveals not only a “Bad Boys 3,” but also a “Bad Boys 4.” None of this guarantees the films will be made, but between Will Smith’s quote and these other signs, we’re willing to believe the Bad Boys series is the next film in line to get the “Fast and the Furious” franchise treatment.

Lil Wayne Reportedly Hit With $900,000 Tax Lien

Lil Wayne has some more unpaid taxes to take care of.

Back in 2014, it was reported that Lil Wayneowed over $12 million in back-taxes, and sources are now claiming that the rapper owes another $900,000 to the IRS.

According to theJasmineBrand, Weezy is being tapped for exactly $868,079.89, the lien being delivered on February 1st in Florida. It's said that this particular amount is from his 2014 assessment, though it's not clear if the rapper has paid off the previous $12 million debt he previously held.

According to HotNewHipHop.com, Lil Wayne owns at least $30 million worth of art, so it shouldn't be too tough for the rapper to pay off that amount, and if he doesn't cough up the cash, the IRS could always seize some of his paintings.

Kanye West Says Bill Cosby Is Innocent

Kanye West has defended Bill Cosby on Twitter.

Bill Cosby is in the middle of a very serious sexual assault investigation which has seen over 60 women come forward with stories of his abuse. While most public figures who have spoken out on the issue have shown support for the alleged victims, a few have assumed Cosby's innocence. Kanye West is now one of those people.
So far, he's only tweeted once about the issue, but his stance is very clear. This is sure to spark a conversation, and hopefully it's one that Kanye and others can learn from.

Adidas Will Give $1 Million To Anyone Who Can Break The 40-Yard-Dash Record

 Adidas ups the ante this year.

As if the promise of an NFL career isn’t enough, adidas has added a pretty hefty carrot to the end of the proverbial stick. The athletic apparel brand is offering a cool $1 million to anyone who can break the current 40-yard-dash record. There’s a catch, of course – the record has to be broken in adidas cleats.
The contest is a very clever marketing maneuver for adidas, because any player in the combine without a pre-existing shoe deal will most certainly lace up in adidas cleats. They have nothing to lose and everything to gain by doing so. The current record of 4.24 seconds was set eight years ago by Arizona Cardinals running back Chris Johnson.
For those unfamiliar, the 40-yard-dash is one of many physical tests that the NFL has prospective players perform ahead of the NFL draft in May. Whether it deserves the distinction or not, the 40-yard-dash has become a sort of celebrity among the NFL Combine events.
The 2016 NFL Scouting Combine begins on February 23, and adidas hopes everyone will be look a little closer at the cleats this year. If you happen to be competing in the event, be sure to check the official rules.

Kanye West's Yeezy Season 4 Will Focus On Children's Clothing

Kanye West's next clothing line is for the lil ones.

With both the (recently re-named) TLOP and Yeezy Season 3 dropping this week, Kanye West has a lot on his plate, but it hasn't stopped him from thinking about what's coming next. Among his many tweets over the last day was an a hint about his next fashion line, Yeezy Season 4, which was a major surprise.
According to Ye, S4 will be all "kid's clothing," which will be a major turnaround from his past three collections, but as a father of two kids (who he keeps very stylish), and someone who continues to challenge himself, we do see his reasoning.
Does this mean he'll also be entering the children's sneaker game as well? Only time will tell.

Check out his tweet below. Think parents will be opening their wallets for his next venture?

American Musician Pharrell Is Now The Co-Owner Of G-Star

Pharrell Williams adds another fashion brand to his growing portfolio of companies.
Pharrell Williams has always been a fashion icon, among his many other talents. He recently bought back full control of Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream, clothing and fashion labels he popularized in the mid 2000’s. His next move is a much bigger one, as Pharrell has been named co-owner of the Dutch denim brand G-Star RAW.
Labeled a “strategic partnership,” Pharrell will “be immersed in the company on many creative levels, from collections, to advertising and business strategy.” So rather than Pharrell purchasing a stake in the company, it appears this partnership is more in line with a highly visible brand partnership than a back-room business deal.
Only positive words flowed between the two parties. “G-Star is an independently minded and forward thinking company," states Pharrell Williams. "I believe they will be the definitive jeans brand of the 21st century. I am looking forward to being part of that mission and to co-create G-Star's future..."
Pharrell’s company Bionic Yarn previously partnered with G-Star to create RAW for the Oceans, a line of denim products created using recycled ocean plastic. It was during that partnership that the musician and denim brand realized they had great synergy, and decided to continue working together at a higher level. Both parties made the announcement via Twitter and a press release.

Flav was fined $685 in both cases. Not bad in the context of Flav's history of legal imbroglios.
