*Ex-army sergeant #AkeishaNorris has filed a lawsuit against rapper #YoungDolph after she claims she was fired for twerking to his music in a viral video he shared, causing a mental breakdown.

The video in question was posted Sept. 2018, and it featured Norris dancing along to one of his tracks, @allhiphopcom reports. Dolph eventually took the video and put it on his website in the lead-up to the release of Role Model. Afterward, her superiors in the Army National Guard saw the clip and disciplined Norris. She was relieved of her duty as sergeant while on active duty in Kuwait, and she was subsequently sent back to the United States.

“[Norris] was called before her superior officers and disciplined, leading to a mental breakdown. As a result, she was sent back to the United States and dismissed from the military,” said her lawyer Keith Altman. In the legal docs, Norris said that she used to be friendly with Dolph, and has claimed that she developed PTSD after he posted her image without her consent. She is suing the rapper for invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

She is also seeking punitive damages and compensatory damages for financial loss. She claims that Dolph humiliated her, caused mental anguish, and damaged her reputation.

Aaliyah Book Titled ‘Baby Girl: Better Known As Aaliyah’ Dropping in 2021

Book Cover Provided by Atria Books / Simon & Schuster

*Christmas has come early for Aaliyah fans, as an upcoming book has been announced that will chronicle her life and career. 

According to Billboard, “Baby Girl: Better Known As Aaliyah” will drop Aug. 17, 2021, under Simon & Schuster/Atria Books. 

Written by journalist and author Kathy Iandoli, the title “will focus on the span of Aaliyah’s life and career — from her earliest beginnings singing in Detroit all the way through to her game-changing musical era with Timbaland, Missy Elliott, and the late Static Major,” revealed in a press release. “The book also includes a deep dive into her tumultuously abusive entanglement with R. Kelly and an intense investigation on the crash that ended her life.” 

Says Iandoli: “I wrote this book as an Aaliyah fan. This is for all of us who for the last twenty years can spot her influence everywhere, while wishing she was still here. I left no stone unturned, and I hope I’ve added to her legacy properly.”

News of the book follows confirmation from Aaliyah’s estate that they are bringing her music to streaming services.

“To our loyal fans: We are excited to announce that communication has commenced between the estate and various record labels about the status of Aaliyah’s music catalogue, as well as its availability on streaming platforms in the near future,” read the announcement from Aaliyah’s Twitter account. “Thank you for your continued love and support. More updates to come!”

Check out the official announcement via the Twitter embed above.

In a 2016 story from Complex on the singer’s uncle, Barry Hankerson, who owns her catalog under his Blackground Records label, writer Stephen Witt said of the absence of Aaliyah’s music on the internet,  “Aaliyah’s internet absence is different—there’s no logic to it. It’s not an artistic statement or a play for more money, and there’s no dedicated Aaliyah-only streaming service in the works.”

Witt continued, “Instead, there’s a single, stubborn man, sitting on a catalog that includes almost all of her most famous work. … The situation puts her entire musical legacy at risk of fading from memory. Year by year, streaming accounts for a greater portion of an artist’s visibility and reverence among the next generation of listeners. And he refuses to budge.”

The rapper detailed his role in a statement, noting that he will help the company with creative decisions, outreach efforts and strategy — focusing on the social justice issues surrounding legalization, Rolling Stone reported.

Per a statement, Jay’s efforts will include “advocacy, job training and overall employee and workforce development.”

“Anything I do, I want to do correctly and at the highest level,” the hip-hop star said in a statement at the time. “With all the potential in the cannabis industry, Caliva’s expertise and ethos make them the best partners for this endeavor. We want to create something amazing, have fun in the process, do good and bring people along the way.”

After conducting an extensive search to find the perfect partner in the cannabis industry, Jay-Z reached out to Caliva. 

“For Jay-Z to seek out Caliva as a partner is humbling and confirms our mission of being the most trusted name in cannabis,” says Caliva CEO, Dennis O’Malley. “To find that we were in complete alignment around our values and ethos was just a home run. We believe this partnership is unparalleled in this or any business and we could not be more pleased to be working with him and have him as our Chief Brand Strategist.”

Jigga is the latest rapper to enter the legal marijuana business. He joins the likes of Snoop Dogg, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Freddie Gibbs and Juicy J and Cypress Hill’s B-Real.

Landlord Threatens to Double Rent If Biden is Elected: ‘If Trump Wins, We All Win’ (Watch)

The landlord of a trailer park in Fort Morgan allegedly sent a note to residents warning rent would most likely double in price if Joe Biden becomes president.

*The landlord of a trailer park in Colorado got creative with his attempt at voter intimidation by threatening to double the rent collected from his tenants if Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins the presidential election.

The Washington Post reports that the short note was allegedly sent to residents by the owner of a Fort Morgan, Colo., trailer park on Monday, claiming that a Democratic victory would lead to “more in taxes, utilities, gasoline, groceries, new permits, fees and regulations … everything!”

“This also means YOUR RENT will be increased to cover these expenses,” the note continued. “Most likely, rent would DOUBLE in price!”

The stark letter, which residents shared with KUSA, irritated tenants and outraged some Colorado Democrats who on Thursday called the note “fearmongering” and a “scare tactic.” The Colorado secretary of state’s office has forwarded complaints about the letter to the state attorney general, KUSA reported.

“We can’t control how this whole election goes,” Cindy Marquez, one of the trailer park’s residents, told KUSA. “We can’t control what everyone else does, you know, we can’t control the results.”

Colorado state Sen. Julie Gonzales (D) said in a tweet Thursday that several tenants had reached out to her about whether the letter was legal. Although she did not weigh in on the legal question, Gonzales said the letter was unacceptable.
