A$AP Rocky May Be Reimbursed For Wages Lost If Cleared Or Found Not Guilty: Report 

As A$AP Rocky has sat in a Swedish jail for the past three weeks, it's reported that he's lost out on an estimated $2 million worth of earnings. The United States government has reached out to Swedish officials in hopes of pleading a case for the 30-year-old rapper, but prosecutors have been steadfast in holding onto their laws. They claim they are approaching this case by the book, although there are many who believe that they are unjustly biased against Rocky because he's black. 

However, TMZ reports that there is a Swedish law that states if a person has been accused and charged with a crime, but is later cleared of the charges or found not guilty, he or she may be reimbursed for money that they lost while in custody. Of course, the keyword here is "may" and it isn't a certainty, but if A$AP is released and charges are dropped, he could recoup millions in lost wages. According to TMZ, Rocky makes, at a minimum, $100K per show.

Meanwhile, Rocky's famous friends are canceling their concerts in Sweden and calling for a boycott of the country. ScHoolboy Q, Tyga, G-Eazy, and Tyler, The Creator have all come forward in defense of Rocky. Rae Sremmurd's Slim Jxmmi recently stated, "I'm not going to Sweden. I'll go to Sweden when they let A$AP free...ain't nobody going to Sweden until they let A$AP free or they change they laws...When A$AP says Sweden is good, then we'll go to Sweden. If A$AP don't say Sweden's good, we ain't goin'."

Dina Hashem, Woman Behind XXXTentacion Joke, Gains Support From Other Comedians 

Rising comedienne Dina Hashem has been touring the stand-up circuit in hopes of catching her big break in order to reach fame by telling jokes, but it's doubtful that this is the way she wanted to obtain notoriety. Recently, Hashem has gained international attention after Comedy Central shared a clip of her telling a distasteful joke about late rapper XXXTentacion.

"He was shot, he was on his way to buy a car with $50K in cash and somebody shot him and took the money," she said. "Which is very tragic but I think also it would be a very good Venmo commercial. That's the first thing I thought when I heard that."

Thousands of XXXTentacion's friends and supporters called Hashem out on her remarks. Fans stormed her social media pages, some with threats, while music artists like Ski Mask The Slump God, Lil Pump, Juice Wrld, and DJ Scheme criticized her publicly. However, there were others who have supported Hashem through the scandal, many of whom are comedians and industry professionals. "If Eminem made the same joke @dinahashem_ did but it rhymed, it would get a billion plays on Spotify and no one would care," one comedian wrote. Check out some highlights from those who think that there are no limits in comedy.

R. Kelly's Girlfriend Azriel Clary Declares Her Love For R. Kelly 

One of R. Kelly's reported girlfriends is addressing rumors that she's been brainwashed by the disgraced singer. As Kelly sits in jail on 13 federal charges that could quite possibly put him away in prison for the remainder of his natural life, his girlfriends Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage continue to stand by their man. Clary recently shared a video to Snapchat that was recorded and uploaded to The Shade Room. It showed Clary trying on clothes while music was blasting, and the outlet claimed she was living her best life.

Clary caught wind of her screen-recorded Snapchats being shared on Instagram and she didn't appreciate what people had to say. In another series of videos, she told everyone to mind their business because she can do what she likes. "Whoever thought they was doing something by posting my story to The Shade Room and screenshotting it...okay, first of all, I've always had a f*cking phone. So, I don't get where people think, 'Oh my gosh, she has a phone, wow.' No, I've always had a phone. Just because my parents put it out there that I don't have a phone, that's them. I don't talk to my parents. I'm not in communication with my parents, and I don't want to talk to my parents."

She goes on to say that she's "a grown ass woman, 21 about to be 22." Clary says it's her choice of who she does and does not communicate with, and the criticisms she received from TSR's post is why she chooses not to share her business on social media. "People are going to say what they want. People are going to take whatever they want and turn it into whatever they want. But at the end of the day, let it be known that I am definitely in love with Robert f*cking Kelly."

Clary also addressed her parents giving interviews and stating that they want her to be happy. "I'm happy with R. Kelly, so let me live my f*cking life," she said. She denied claims that she was being held hostage by Kelly and shared that before he was arrested they were in Florida "turning up." She also called out people who keep bringing up his 2008 case, reminding them that he was acquitted of those child pornography charges. In the meantime, her father has made repeated public pleas for her to contact him or to come home. He even stated he would pay her expenses and find her a place to live.

Matt Barnes Wants Court To Reduce $7,500 Per Month Child Support Payments: Report 

Former NBA star Matt Barnes continues to battle it out in court with his ex-wife, Gloria Govan. The pair have been at odds for years over their now-11-year-old twin sons, and Barnes is hoping that the courts will reduce his child support payments. According to The Blast, Barnes has filed paperwork to examine Govan's finances because he's currently dishing out $7,500 per month in child support payments. Meanwhile, Govan is engaged to Los Angeles Sparks head coach and former NBA star Derek Fisher.

Barnes's attorneys claim that Govan told the court she doesn't have a job, but somehow she receives $1,250 monthly and lists monthly expenses of almost $20K. They believe that Fisher is helping her financially, and if that's the case, Barnes wants his lawyers and a judge to inspect Govan's financial records to see if he could drastically reduce his child support payments. By how much, you ask? Barnes is hoping to only have to pay $1,018 for both boys. For the record, at one point he was paying Govan $20K per month.

Meanwhile, Govan argues that Barnes owes her $20K from last year, not including his reduced $7,500 she says he didn't cough up in December. She also alleges that he has only paid half of his monthly payments for the majority of 2019. Earlier this year, Govan completed court-appointed anger management classes following an incident where she allegedly followed Barnes, who had their children in his car, and attempted to block his vehicle from moving. 

Megan Thee Stallion Hopes To Capitalize Off Of "Hot Girl Summer" By Trademarking Phrase 

Another popular saying, another attempt to trademark it. Megan Thee Stallion's "Hot Girl Summer" slogan has become its own viral sensation, and the rapper is reportedly making sure that she owns the phrase. The leader of the "Hot Girls" has been sharing how people can have their own "Hot Girl Summer," and it has become so popular that the fellas have come up with a City Boys movement of their own. Earlier this month, a fan on Twitter advised Megan that she should look into trademarking her slogan, and the rapper shared that "it’s been in the process."

Billboard claims that they've confirmed "Hot Girl Summer" is close to being trademarked by Thee Stallion, just in time for the rapper to release her forthcoming anthem that will reportedly share the same name. Megan shared a snippet of the track on social media and although it has yet to be released, it's already trending on Apple Music. Hopefully, Megan can secure that trademark because there are major, big-time brands using the catchphrase in strategic marketing to promote their sales, specials, and events.

In case you missed it, Megan shared the definition of her slogan by saying, "Being a Hot Girl is about being unapologetically YOU, having fun, being confident, living YOUR truth , being the life of the party etc." Meanwhile, we previously reported that Cardi B's attempt to trademark her signature "Okurr" saying was denied, as U.S. Patent and Trademark officials stated that her slogan is a "widely-used commonplace expression."

Waka Flocka Drops Empowering IG Clip: "Don't Be So Self-Serving" 

Fans have watched as Waka Flocka has been open and honest about the mistakes he's made in the past. He's shared his story on reality television, whether it be on Growing Up Hip Hop, Marriage Boot Camp, or his wedding special, Waka & Tammy Tie The Knot. On TV, during interviews, or on social media, Waka has stated that fatherhood has made him a changed man, and often he likes to share bits of wisdom with the public in hopes of inspiring them to make better decisions.

In a recent Instagram clip, the rapper offered up some advice. "Look, a n*gga gon' hate every day," he began. "If you choose to f*ck with it, that mean listen to it, pay attention to it, react to it, reply to it, however you wanna say it, you the idiot. Just like the n*gga speaking to you. Life perspective man, learn yours. Learn your choices. I don't know how you're making them [or] who you're making them for. Just don't be so self-serving."

He added that he wants people to step outside of themselves and to view the world in the eyes of another. "Think about others some time. Think about your actions and the sh*t you're doing and how it affects other people. I'm saying this in the most positive way. Nowhere near trying to be corny. Just tryin' to advise and empower you as a person so you can empower the things around you and the people around you."

Slim Jxmmi Supports Sweden Boycott, Shares Story Of Being Detained In Another Country 

Rae Sremmurd's Slim Jxmmi is standing in solidarity with A$AP Rocky as he refuses to visit Sweden while his friend is in jail. Rocky has been detained in a Swedish facility for three weeks and prosecutors look as if they're moving forward with assault charges against the rapper. The White House has reportedly been in talks with the Swedish government to aid in Rocky's release, but Swedish prosecutors are adamant that they do not follow American laws and will not be pressured by the United States government.

The world watched the viral videos of the assault that landed Rocky and members of his entourage in prison, and it's clear that they were reacting to being accosted, harassed, and stalked on the streets of Sweden. The two men following them will not face charges, and many are crying foul on the case against Rocky. Some of his friends have called for a boycott of the country including ScHoolboy Q, Tyga, and Tyler, The Creator.

Adding his name to that list is Slim Jxmmi who told a TMZ cameraman that he ran into some trouble of his own in another country. "When you're overseas, it's real tricky," Jxmmi said. "They laws is different. I had got detained for smoking a blunt at a festival so you gotta be real careful. But free A$AP because it's really not right...and when you think about it, they let G-Eazy go. Shout out to G-Eazy, that's my guy, but they let G-Eazy go for some wild sh*t. I don't wanna say it's 'cause of the color of his skin, but it looked wilder."

In May 2018, rapper G-Eazy was arrested in Sweden after he assaulted a bouncer. He was found with cocaine and was hauled off to jail, but G-Eazy was released just 48 hours later. Meanwhile, Jxmmi believes that Rocky and those who were arrested with him should be freed as soon as possible because their incarceration isn't fair. "In our hearts, in our spirits, we know that's not right. So, free A$AP. A$AP, man, I hope everything goes well." The rapper added that he is joining the boycott of Sweden. 

"I'm not going to Sweden," he said. "I'll go to Sweden when they let A$AP free...ain't nobody going to Sweden until they let A$AP free or they change they laws." Jxmmi added Swedish official should give A$AP all the money he could have earned traveling and performing. "When A$AP says Sweden is good, then we'll go to Sweden. If A$AP don't say Sweden's good, we ain't goin'."

Future & Lil Keed Collab On "Undefeated" 

He has yet to announce a formal forthcoming album following his SAVE ME project he dropped last month, but Future has been delivering new music as if there's something new brewing. Earlier this month he shared his track "100 Shooters" featuring Meek Mill and Doe Boy, and now Future is back with his Lil Keed-assisted single, "Undefeated."

Keed recently released his impressive debut mixtape Long Live Mexico, a 20-track project that was received well by fans. The up-and-coming rapper has been linking up with many of his fellow Atlanta artists, including Future, but none have mentored him like that of Young Thug. "He just wants to see everybody get the money," Keed said of Thugger when he sat down with us. "He doesn’t care if you make more money than him. He’ll say, 'I don’t care if my brothers make more money than me, I just want them to make the money and do what they gotta do with it.' You don’t have to be like him but just handle your business and you’re family."

Quotable Lyrics

Two loaded guns, I got double the shells
Count all the blue when I'm in the Chanel
Choppa in the Coupe and I move like a snail
You could smell all type of Kush in the air
Supply and demand and you movin' them bells

R. Kelly's Crisis Manager Darrell Johnson Steps Down "For Personal Reasons" 

Things have to be going way left for R. Kelly in order for his crisis manager to hand in his resignation. For months, Darrell Johnson has taken center stage to defend his client, often attempting to put out media fires that have been spread by the ever-growing news, speculation, and gossip surrounding the child pornography and sexual assault allegations against Kelly. 

"Mr. Kelly feels like the devil is working overtime in effort to try to destroy his musical legacy for selfish, personal enrichment," Johnson told TMZ back in May, adding that Kelly was remaining positive during these trying times. "We feel everything will line up right on track when it is all said and done." Following Kelly's latest arrest, Johnson delivered a press conference where one of Kelly's girlfriend's parents shouted at him to bring his daughter home. More recently, Johnson sat down with CBS This Morning and gave comments that made some believe that things may not be copacetic on the "Free R. Kelly" front.

When asked if he would allow his 20-year-old daughter to be alone in a room with his client, Johnson told Gayle King "Absolutely not. I wouldn’t leave my daughter with anybody that’s accused of pedophilia." Following that interview, CBS News reports that Johnson has issued a statement announcing that he is removing himself from Kelly's team.

"I step down as crisis manager for personal reasons," he said. "Mr. Kelly is in good hands with Mr. [Steve] Greenberg [Kelly's criminal defense attorney]." During his interview with King, Johnson described Kelly as "normal" and stated there was nothing in his actions that made Johnson suspicious. "They've indicted Mr. Kelly," Johnson said in his interview. "He's in jail right now. He will have his day in court, and they'll have to bring the evidence. And that's what has to be done. If the evidence stick, Mr. Kelly will spend the rest of his life in the penitentiary."
