The Entire Maybach Music Group Links To Promote Stalley’s Ohio [VIDEO]

September 26, 2014 in News by Trent Clark

Crew love is a beautiful thing when the support is real. In preparation for Stalley’s studio debut album Ohio, Rick Ross calls up the entire MMG empire (with the understandable exception of Meek Mill) to drive home the fact that it drops on October 27.

The clip starts off with The Bawse posted up in his luxury when he decides to give a DJ Scream a ring to inform him that the album’s distribution is on the move. From there, a game of rap celebrity phone tag ensues, which is all a direct reflection of their talent roster. Wale (who is currently working on his next project), DJ Khaled, Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood’s Omarion, Fat Trel, Rockie Fresh and the always-enigmatic Gunplay are also down for the ride through the 330 skyline.

Even through the smoke screen marketing ploy, Stalley has given his fans an authentic reason to be excited. He’s reunited with Rashad, the most influential producer he’s worked with in accordance to his sound, and the “Jackin’ Chevys” record (played on repeat throughout the clip) has both regions with “west” in their name bouncing with swag.

Check the MMG hotline video down below and pre-order the Stalley Ohio album on iTunes.

Insane Clown Posse Mask Prank Lands Murder Charge For Ohio Teens

September 17, 2014 in News by D.L. Chandler

A prank gone wrong in Ohio has left one teen dead and his friends charged with murder. The slain boy entered the home of a former friend wearing an Insane Clown Posse mask and was gunned down by a resident, and later died due to the negligence of his friends.

The bizarre incident took place in the early morning hours last Sunday in Prairie Township when Reb Barbee, 17, entered the home of Heather Tackett, who discovered Barbee standing over her 17-year-old’s bed in the dark. Using her boyfriend’s pistol, she shot Barbee who then fled with his pals.

The Columbus Dispatch has more:

Investigators say that Reb Barbee, 17, was behind the mask and had three friends help him sneak through a second-floor window of 8798 Hubbard Dr. S.

Despite a gunshot wound in his upper back, Barbee ran with his friends about a half-mile back to Barbee’s house at 635 Dovalon Place.

Nobody called 911. Not until an hour later, at 5:14 a.m. when Adam Pickens picked up the phone.

“Uh, I have a shot friend,” the 18-year-old told the dispatcher. “I really don’t know what to say.”

Pickens lied to the authorities in a bid to protect Barbee, who later died around 6 a.m. at OhioHealth Doctors Hospital. Pickens, Brandon J. Hamilton and Tyler R. Blazer, both 17, were arrested.

Hamilton and Blazer face delinquency counts of murder and complicity to aggravated burglary. Pickens will face the same charges in adult court and is currently being held on $250,000 bond.

Tackett said she was “devastated” by the incident.

Stalley Announces Title Of Major Label Debut [VIDEO]

August 24, 2014 in News by Trent Clark

Contrary to popular belief, Stalley didn’t rise to prominence when he signed to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music imprint. It was his formal debut Lincoln Way Nights: Intelligent Trunk Music with Ohio producer Rashad Thomas that placed his name amongst rap’s elite crop of newcomers.

From that point on, the thought-provoking MC has been building momentum without the traditional co-signs that has led up to the announcement of his major label debut which he simply–and fittingly–titled Ohio.

In a new vlog, Stalley explains that his debut album comes at a “pivotal time in his career” and will definitely please anyone who comes within earshot of the record.

“I’m really trying to give the people that sound again and get deeper into what ‘we’ started,” the bearded artist outlined. “It’s music that’s built for the cause but you can also enjoy it in your headphones or the computer, however you want to listen to it.”

Longtime fans will be pleased to know that Rashad is playing an integral role on the project as he breaks down the LP’s makeup. “The basis will definitely be a Ohio upbringing and the quality of the Midwest we want to bring to the table. I don’t think there’s been a clear representation of where we come from and that’s [our] main goal that it’s a cohesive idea of what we’re representing,” the acclaimed beatsmith stated.

R. Kelly Cut From Festival For Alleged Sexual Predator Past

July 30, 2014 in News by Trent Clark

The Columbus, OH Buckeyes recently banded together to treat R. Kelly like Chris Hanson would, should they ever meet.

Kelly was slated to headline Fashion Meets Music Festival in all his Pied Piper glory, but the singer’s past, which involves several allegations of inappropriate relationships with children, was too much to bear for concertgoers and they had him cut from the lineup altogether.

Reports The Columbus-Dispatch:

“We wanted to make sure we heard the Columbus listeners … to make a statement and support the city we live in,” said festival spokeswoman Melissa Dickson, who added that a public-relations firm is helping the event repair its image.

The decision to pull Kelly’s Nationwide show on Aug. 29 came late last week after Saintseneca, a Columbus band also set to play the festival, announced plans to cancel because of Kelly’s appearance. WCBE (90.5 FM) withdrew its sponsorship shortly after.

Those departures were preceded by a local duo, Damn the Witch Siren, which on July 3 abandoned their festival appearance because of Kelly’s history, which includes a 2008 acquittal on 14 counts of child pornography and a Chicago Sun-Times investigation linking the Grammy winner to underage girls.

Organizers of the Fashion Meets Music Festival, which is to take place in and around the Arena District on Aug. 29-31, issued a brief announcement last night via Facebook and Twitter to say the artist and event have “parted ways.”

Although Kellz has remained mum on the announcement, his publicist sent out a vague, indirect statement saying, “R. Kelly is sorry to disappoint his fans but looks forward to seeing them in the near future during one of his upcoming tours.”

Ohio Woman Takes #Prisonbae Mugshot, Complete Opposite Of Jeremy Meeks [Photo]

July 15, 2014 in News by Trent Clark

The hunt for viral mugshots have increased since the unexpected superstardom on Jeremy Meeks, but Angela Green’s jailhouse photo-pp following her arrest for refusing to leave a hotel room had quite the opposite effect.

Green, 34, of Cleveland, OH, took a rather unflattering mugshot photo after she remained uncooperative with the authorities who took her and male companion into custody.

Via Wickliffe Police Department:

On Saturday, 07/12/14, at approx. 1206 hrs., the management of the Quality Inn, 28600 Euclid, called the police department requesting assistance for guests who refused to leave. Responding officers found that a male and female had rented a room the previous evening and were to have checked out by 1100 and now would not leave.

Officers knocked on room 253 and the door was answered by a male and female. The officer explained that they needed to leave or rent the room for another day and the female became loud and uncooperative.

The officer identified the male, 24 year old Brian Baker of Cleveland, and attempted to identify the female; however, as the couple was being escorted from the building it was discovered that she had provided fictitious information. Once outside, the female continued to become loud and uncooperative and refused to identify herself.

After a brief struggle the female was arrested and transported to the WPD. The female was identified as, Angela Green, a 34 year old Cleveland resident. Green was charged with obstructing official business and eventually released on $354 cash bond.

Hit the flip to seen Angela’s ridiculous mugshot in full. Pucker up.

Indiana Man Caught Speeding In Ohio Had 48 Bombs In His Car [VIDEO]

January 9, 2014 in News by D.L. Chandler

An Indiana man caught speeding on New Year's Day in Ohio may have been trying to ring in 2014 in an entirely different fashion than most. After a police officer pulled over Andrew Scott Boguslawski for the moving violation, 48 bombs and a collection of weapons were later found.

Boguslawski, 43, got special attention from the officer just outside of the city of Columbus on Interstate 70 after noticing a curious bumper sticker that read, “If you can read this, you're in range.” From there, it all went downhill for Boguslawski after he told the cop he didn't have weapons in the car although a handle of a gun was protruding between his knees. The Madison Press has more.

From the Madison Press:

An Indiana man is in the Tri-County Regional Jail on a $1 million bond following his arrest with four guns and nearly 50 bombs.

Andrew Scott Boguslawski, 43, of Morris Hill, Ind., is being held, charged with one count of illegal manufacture or processing explosives, a felony of the second degree. He is set for a preliminary hearing Friday, Jan 10.

“I think there is a significant risk to the public,” said Assistant Madison County Prosecutor Nick Adkins, explaining the million dollar bond. “Until we can sort through the facts of this case and what we have here and what his intent was, it is necessary to keep the public safe.”

It was 11:40 at night when Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper William Davis clocked Boguslawski doing 85 in a 70 MPH zone. After asking about weapons and noticing the firearm, Officer Davis held Boguslawski until backup came. Investigators then found two handguns, two rifles, plans of a building and other materials along with the 48 bombs. Cops also seized a laptop, a GPS system and a camera.

What makes this case even stranger is that Boguslawski works in Indiana at a training facility for Navy Seals, but apparently has not made a formal statement about his plans with the explosives or why he was in Ohio. The prosecutor in the case says Boguslawski doesn't have a criminal history.

Get It In Ohio: Woman Stabs Sister Over Apple Fritters On Christmas

December 27, 2013 in News by Alvin Aqua Blanco

A woman in Akron, Ohio made clear that her Christmas spirit ends at apple fritters. Contisha Q. Hayes, 21, stabbed her sister,  Tamara D. Delaney, 21, in the chest on Christmas night after getting into a fight. 

Reports the Akron Beacon:

One sister is hospitalized and another is in jail after an argument over apple fritters ended in a stabbing. Akron police say they were called to the 900 block of Springdale Street around 11:30 p.m. Christmas night for a reported stabbing.

Investigators say one sister was in the kitchen making apple fritters when two other sisters “started to play fight” over the treat.

At one point, police say, one sister pulled the hair of the other sister.

The sister whose hair was pulled, Contisha Q. Hayes, pulled out a knife and stabbed her sister, Tamara D. Delaney, 21, in the chest.

Delaney was taken to Akron City Hospital for treatment of what authorities say was nonlife-threatening injuries.

Hayes, who was taken to Summit County Jail, was charged with felonious assault and not believing in the spirit of the Holidays.

Yeah, we totally made that second charge up. Check out Hayes' mugshot on the flip.

Ohio Cops Make $3.75 Million Marijuana Bust [PHOTOS]

November 26, 2013 in News by D.L. Chandler

In an elaborate undercover operation, authorities in Ohio seized nearly $4 million in marijuana shipped from medical dispensaries in California, Colorado, and Oregon. Along with the leaf itself, candies, drinks and brownies laced with the potent drug were also part of the haul.

According to the reports of several outlets, the Warren County Drug Task Force, Ohio State Highway Patrol and other officials worked in tandem across three Ohio counties to shut down the shipment of edible pot and weed. Warren, Montgomery and Drake counties were the areas the operation took place, taking down Bradley O'Neal, 26, and Casey Oakes, 27, with several other indictments to come.

O'Neal and Oakes purchased 100 pounds of marijuana for $180,000 in Warren County from undercover officers, resulting in cops establishing six search warrants across Montgomery and Drake counties. Each pound has a street value close to $5,000, said task force Commander John J. Burke.

The bust yielded an array of edible marijuana-laced items such as brownies, candies and drinks. Ohio has been dealing with an uptick in these manner of busts for the past year, which seems to have a connection with medical marijuana centers found on the West Coast.

Also on the national radar recently was the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's seizure last week of a truck that was supposed to be carrying Mexican squash into lower Texas but instead was hiding pounds of marijuana with a street value of $10.1 million.

The Warren County Drug Task Force press release can be read here.

Adam “Pacman” Jones Found Not Guilty In Woman Punching Case

October 9, 2013 in News by Alvin Aqua Blanco

The NFL's Adam "Pacman" Jones has ducked some trouble, this time. After claiming self-defense, the cornerback was found not guilty of punching a woman outside of a Cincinnati bar called Tin Roof back in June 2013.

TMZ reports:

A judge ruled in Jones' favor in the misdemeanor assault case stemming from the June 5 incident ... where he appeared to punch, or at least slap, the alleged victim as she stood in an outdoor area of the club.

But the attorney for the Cincinnati Bengals cornerback argued Jones was only acting in self-defense because the woman had hit him with a beer bottle.

The surveillance video clearly shows her making the first move -- and although prosecutors claimed Jones started everything by calling the woman and her friends "fat and ugly" ... that wasn't enough to convict.

Translation -- the judge told the woman to follow 3rd grade rules: Sticks and stones ...

Pacman Jones clearly has experience choosing great lawyers to represent him. He still hit a woman, though. Just saying.
