The 27-year-old, whose real name is Inga Marchand, turned herself in to detectives at the 77 Precinct at around 2:30 p.m. yesterday afternoon. She was charged with felony assault, menacing, harassment and criminal possession of a weapon. Brown was arraigned last night and released on $5,000 bail. Her next court date is Sept. 26.
Police say the trouble-prone rapper, who is on parole, was accused of assaulting her 25-year-old neighbor on July 30 at around 6:50 p.m. at the corner of Carlton Avenue and Prospect Place. The rapper allegedly smacked the woman with her cell phone, a Blackberry, during an argument.
The victim was reportedly taken to Brooklyn Hospital for loosening of the teeth, swelling of the lip and swelling of the right eye. She filed a complaint with police, and after an investigation, the rapper agreed to turn herself in yesterday.
It’s a shame that the Foxy of today is a bonafide mess. She either wants to go to jail or is just flat out crazy.SMH…
This one has been generating a buzz on the net as of late. Kel Mitchell, of ‘Keanan and Kel‘ fame, stars in this hilarious spoof of R. Kelly and Usher’s ‘Same Girl’. I don’t usually find Kel funny, but I can’t deny that this had me cracking up. Check it out.
What do you think of the vid?
R&B songstress Mya performed her new single ‘Ridin’ at the Spotlight Live in New York a few weeks back. I’m really liking the track and felt Mya did the song justice live. Mya’s long-awaited (and serially delayed) album ‘Liberation’ is confirmed for a September 18th release – here’s hoping that the date sticks. Be on the lookout for a potential Mya feature in the weeks and months ahead.
What do you think of the performance?
HHDX: Fifty, I just wanted to know… how’d you manage to get Ciara to forget about Lil’ Bow Wow?
50 Cent: [Laughs] You’re a nut, man! They came at me about doing the song and I heard the joint. It was before her album came out and I was thinking that she’s the future of R&B. People love Beyoncé, but look at how long she’s been around! I think that she’s dope, though. But I’m about the future of the business and her [Ciara] and Chris Brown are just that. They’re going to be the best things out in a lil’ bit. But as far as what people think between me and her, man… [laughs], the video did that.
I suppose the man is entitled to his own opinion, but come on now lol. I’ve always (and continue to) give props to Ciara for avoiding the ‘Beyonce Curse’ that so many R&B chicks suffer from. However, I don’t think any other female is giving Beyonce a run for her money – in terms of being the total package.
Not sure how to read into this one. The quote makes it seem like she has a problem with Hip Hop, but I just see it as her telling it like it is. Nothing she’s done prior to now has been Hip Hop influenced, so why would her album be?
