Meek Mill and Kendrick Lamar will both be gracing the stage at Powerhouse tomorrow in Philly and Meek is coming for Kendrick. He tweeted, “Aye @kendricklamar ima show you who king on this side at powerhouse Friday! #philly” and “Same stage 1 night! #oohkillem”. Meek then tweeted a video of his performance from a Powerhouse show a couple of years ago with the caption “And I been running my city b4 the deal! #powerhouse.” Hopefully everyone stays civil!

People Are Using Instagram to Sell Their Guns...and It’s Mostly Legal - Most people use instagram to showcase their selfies and duck faces but for some the photo/video sharing app is serving as a means to sell their guns. More and more private and professional dealers are selling, negotiating and show casing guns over IG. Everything from handguns to assault rifles to shotguns are being advertised and can be found simply by searching the gun name. IG doesn’t have an explicit policy against the sale of firearms and there’s no federal law that bans online sales so its technically legal. Critics are understandably concerned about the public safety aspect. An attorney with the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence said, “We are definitely concerned about the public safety implications of unregulated online gun sales, primarily the ability of sellers to skirt background checks and trafficking in firearms—both legal and illegal guns—to prohibited persons… There is no federal law prohibiting sales of firearms over the internet, and the ready availability of firearms through social applications presents yet another avenue for unlicensed sellers to transfer guns anonymously and without background checks. This loophole underscores the need for a universal background check requirement, so we can keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and other persons prohibited from having them.” One IG gun seller said that he assumes the sellers/buyers are following the law and says that he adheres to them because he is a “responsible gun owner”.
Lil Wayne Backs Nonprofit Group - Lil Wayne is giving back in a big way. He is using his celebrity to help raise funds for a Miami based group called Motivational Edge. The group provides inner city youth with after school programs that are focused on the arts. Wayne talks about how his involvement in music helped him to get out of the poverty-ridden neighborhood where he grew up. Wayne is encouraging people to donate by offering those who contribute the chance to win perks like signed merchandise. So far the group has raised $32K of their $200K goal.
Paula Deen Tweets About Cruise And Black Twitter Goes In - Paula Deen is trying to move on from the multi-million dollar backlash from her admitting to using racial slurs towards her employees. Deen is working on promoting the Paula Deen Cruise and tweeted “There're only a few spots left on the Paula Deen Cruise, y'all, so hurry up and reserve your cabin today.” Black Twitter was not having it and they subsequently went IN! Some of the hilarious responses included: “Roots: The Prequel RT @PaulaDeel There're only a few spots left on the Paula Deen Cruise, y'all, so hurry up and reserve your cabin today.” “Paula Deen tryna get boys on the Amistad. Ion care how many sugary/ buttery treats there are on board. I ain’t down”, and a retweet of Deen’s tweet along with a picture of a slave ship. Someone said “we fell for this in the 1790s.” There were comments like “I’ll be a one way yall,” Do we have to build the ship,” “with free silver bracelets.” Doesn’t look like Paula is going to be able to shake this dark cloud any time soon.

The Archbishop who performed the baptism said “As a nation we are celebrating the birth of someone who in due course will be the head of state. That's extraordinary.
