Young Buck Target Of Drive-By Shooting!– Tha Wire

On top of that, another shooting took play this weekend. Nipsey Hussle was performing in Arizona at a nightclub Friday when 13 people were shot. For all the details press play to hear Tha Wire, however as promised here's Nipseys full statement on the matter:
"My deepest thoughts and sympathies go out to the victims and their families who were affected by the tragic event that took place last night in Arizona, and I pray for the speed recovery for anyone involved. Contrary to current media reports, it's important to note that these shootings did NOT happen inside a venue, concert or show in which I was booked to perform, and at the time of the incident, I was in my hotel room. I grew up on the street of south central Los Angeles and have witnessed many tragedies in my lifetime. I never glorify any situation like this and think it is disgusting. Any fan of my music knows that I strongly oppose gun violence, and that I represent nothing but peace and progress through hard work...that anyone can overcome adversity no matter what your social status in life, which is clearly addressed on my latest release, "The Marathon Continues". Many people will wrongfully attribute this incident to the hip-hop culture, which is purely and simply false. The alleged shooters were not ticket holders for my performance. Regardless, this incident is a tragic reminder of circumstances that face our community every day, and my heart and prayers go out to the victims of this and all the other senseless acts of violence occurring every day in our communities.-Nipsey"

HERE'S TODAY'S BONUS STORY:
In what's gotta seem like a very bad dream, hackers have managed to break into Sony Musics archive. If that's not bad enough, the cyber crooks illegally downloaded more than 50,000 digital files. Of those files? Unreleased and never before heard music by Michael Jackson!
So you'll know, Sony bosses paid $250 million for Michael's entire back catalogue alone, of which hackers took in minutes. Including in Michael's unheard material was studio sessions from when he recorded "Off The Wall", "Thriller" and "Bad".
According to reports by the Britain Sunday Times, "Everything Sony purchased from the Michael Jackson estate was compromised. It caused them to check their systems and they found the breach. There was a degree of sophistication. Sony identified the weakness and plugged the gap."
