A suspect in the 2015 murder of rapper Chinx has been arrested. Quincy Homere, 32, of Long Island faces the following charges: murder, attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
Chinx,31, whose real name is Lionel Pickens, was gunned down in his Porsche back in May of 2015. The fatal shooting occurred in Queens at a red light near Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive, according to police.
Chinx was shot multiple times in the torso and taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. The rapper's friend, who was also in the car, suffered gunshot wounds to his back.
... or not.
Coldwater, MI — Last July, Tiffany McNeil would walk into the Branch County Jail in handcuffs only to leave in a stretcher moments later after being brutally assaulted by a police officer and knocked unconscious.
What happened while McNeil, 31, was being processed into jail that fateful day is now the subject of a federal lawsuit alleging that police used excessive force and then lied about what happened. The incident—in which a half dozen cops stood by and watched their brother in blue smash a handcuffed woman’s face into the pavement—was also captured on video.
“It was absolutely egregious, disgusting, thug-like conduct,” McNeil’s attorney, Solomon Radner, said. “You don’t expect that from police officers, and it shouldn’t be tolerated.”
On July 24, police were called to McNeil’s home by her husband during an argument. According to the lawsuit, McNeil had been drinking which sparked the argument.
McNeil was arrested and brought to the Branch County Jail to be processed for the incident. As police bring her into the secured entrance, we can see this disturbing scenario unfold.
The woman-beating cop, identified in the lawsuit as Lewis Eastmead, is seen shoving McNeil’s face into the concrete wall for several minutes. The entire time, McNeil is non-combative and not resisting in the least—not to mention, she’s in handcuffs.
All of the sudden, the officer begins pressing her face into the wall with both hands before pulling her backward and slamming her face-first into the concrete floor. McNeil was knocked out immediately.
During the attack on the restrained woman, five other cops watched as their brother in blue degraded the young woman by shoving her face into the wall and not a single one of them intervened as he slammed her to the floor.
In a most disturbing image, once Eastmead realizes McNeil is knocked unconscious, he rolls his victim over to reveal a puddle of blood on the floor coming from the massive gash in her head.
“I told you to relax,” the officer yells, with his knee now on McNeil’s back as she lay motionless on the ground.
For nearly 15 minutes, police prodded the unconscious woman as she lay entirely unresponsive on the concrete. Finally, EMTs arrive and bring her to the hospital where, according to Radner, McNeil received 17 stitches and was treated for a concussion.
After being treated in the hospital, police charged McNeil with felony resisting a police officer. To justify this charge, police then lied on their report, claiming McNeil was being “combative” and “actively resisting arrest,” according to the lawsuit.
Obviously, McNeil was not being combative as we can clearly see that fact in the video. She was doing nothing wrong when Eastmead attacked her.
Radner explained that police brought the felony charge against her to force her into taking a plea deal for the domestic misdemeanor charge to which she pleaded no contest. The felony resisting charge was then dropped.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Eastmead and about a dozen other officers and police department supervisors, including the officers who witnessed the incident, are listed among the defendants, with some identified by name and others listed as John Doe. McNeil is also suing the city of Coldwater.
Along with the excessive force claim, the lawsuit alleges unreasonable seizure; abuse of process and malicious prosecution; that the other police officers failed to intervene “to prevent the violation of Ms. McNeil’s constitutional rights,” and that city failed to properly screen, train and supervise its police officers. It seeks at least $75,000 in damages.
As for Eastmead, he is still a cop on the Coldwater force.
Last week @konceptjones asked me about trying to flip 30 dollars worth of bitcoin into a few hundred, so I thought it would be good to get more people into trading bitcoin. It's unconventional, and I had a lot of doubts about it, but since starting in January I have made good money.
This is what I started with. Now this is what I have today.
The second photo is the important one for this first post. You can see that my current portfolio is actually made up of virtual currencies that are not bitcoin, even though the value is given at the top in bitcoin and US dollars. The trick to really making this money is trading your bitcoin for the other currencies, then trading back when bitcoin experiences price drops. Right now it's at an all time high, and is primed to reach $2,000.00 USD. If it hits there it seems likely that there will be retrace in that time. Right now a good chunk of my portfolio is made up of something called GNT (Golem Network Token). It's technically not a currency, but actually a token that users can exchange in order to access the Golem Network. The golem network is a super computer, made up of a network of computers, that users can use to help them perform demanding tasks. For example, doing computer generated graphics requires a lot of computer power and can take a long time. To make it faster, someone could use their GNT to access the network and do the work in much less time. Currently, the tech is still in Alpha, but if you have some bitcoin to spare I would suggest grabbing some now since the price is still quite low.
That's it for my first post. I'll do a second post later to cover how to sell your bitcoins, and another one on when to sell to get the most money.
Good luck trading
Metro Boomin is clearly a fan of the days where one producer and one rapper would team up to record an entire project. This year alone, Metro laced the beats for Gucci Mane's DropTopWop, Nav's Perfect Timing, and Offset & 21 Savage's Without Warning. Today, the prolific Atlanta producer has announced yet another addition to his repertoire - a collaboration album with Detroit rapper Big Sean, called Double Or Nothing. The news was confirmed in an interview with Billboard, who spoke to the duo at their rented house in California.
Metro opens up by explaining why he prefers the single-producer, citing a few key classics as examples. "I was born in ’93,” he says, “and a lot of projects [from that era] had one producer, maybe two. They sounded more cohesive -- better as a whole.” Metro had previously collaborated with Big Sean's I Decided single "Bounce Back," as well as two other tracks from that album. Most recently, they teamed up to deliver "Pull Up N Wreck" with 21 Savage. And while Metro's signature sound has since went on to shape the hip-hop landscape, Double Or Nothing will reportedly find him exploring new styles and genres.
Apparently, the project was made in both Atlanta and Los Angeles, with plenty of spontaneous writing sessions. Basically, Metro would make a beat on the spot, and Sean would follow-suit with lyrics. Sean alleges "on some tracks, the playback will bleed into the microphone, because they recorded without a vocal booth or even a pair of headphones."
While there has yet to be a release date for Double Or Nothing, you never know with these "surprise" albums. It could be dropping next week, or next year for all we know. What do ya'll think about this one? Did you like Metro and Sean's previous work? Sound off below, and stay tuned for more news on this pleasant surprise.
I was at the store the other day looking at board games and thinking of getting some shit I've never played, like Risk.
Is Risk hard? I know the gist of the game but don't know how to play it.
For me it's Michelle Beisner of the NFL Network.
shes a freak for sure.
What producer has the best tag and as soon as it drops you know it's gonna be a dope song?
I am curious.
I see alot of potential on the IC and everyone has a specialty that sets them apart..
do you guys realize the people that you may look up to our see in business setting are not that good at their job but they do have the belief that their gift or what they can show as a gift makes them money?
we all have that it.
what are yours?
Dope interview, he dropped game about the music industry, sampling and how hip hop could be out the door the way jazz and R&B did with all the white artists
