T.I. REMEMBERS DOE B AT FUNERAL SERVICE

Posted on January 5, 2014 at 5:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Hundreds turned out to pay their respects to Doe B during a funeral service in Montgomery, Ala. on Saturday.

 

 

The 22-year-old rapper, born Glenn Lamar Thomas, was killed during a shooting at Montgomery nightclub Centennial Hill Bar & Grill last month. Troy University student Kimberle Johnson, 21, also lost her life.

 

According to the Montgomery Advertiser, an oversized crowd packed True Divine Baptist Church for the back-to-back services, during which friends and family of both victims spoke.

 

T.I., who signed Doe B to Grand Hustle Records in 2012, recalled a mature and composed young man.

 

“I admired Doe because as a young man at the age that he always presented himself to be more mature,” said Tip. “It’s very rare that you can find somebody at the age of 20-21 and sit them down in front of somebody that they aspire to be like and they are composed and poised and postured.”

 

He vowed to carry on his legacy. “One thing that I will never do, I’ll never let this young man’s hard work go to waste,” he continued. “I’ll never let his life be lived in vain. All of my resources, relationships, all of my efforts, all of my energy will be put forth to make sure that his dream lives on.”

 

Doe’s mother also shared fond memories of her son. “I’m going to miss him coming in saying ‘Lady, what you cooking?’ and I would say ‘whatever you want to eat I’m going to cook it,’” she said. “He would say ‘you know I love some of them chicken wings.’ He would have a whole crew with him and I’d have to cook enough for everybody.”

 

On Friday, a third victim, Tim Hamilton, died. The 20-year-old had been in critical condition in a Montgomery hospital since being shot.

 

Montgomery police have arrested two suspects in the case. Darius Thomas, 25, and Jason McWilliams, 25, were both charged with two counts of capital murder.

DRAKE'S "NOTHING WAS THE SAME" DEBUTS AT NO. 1

Posted on October 3, 2013 at 10:20 PM Comments comments (0)


Drake is back on top. The Toronto MC not only has the No. 1 album in the country, he also has the second-largest sales week of the year with Nothing Was the Same.

 

 

The third album from the 26-year-old debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 658,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

 

The only album to sell more copies in a week this year was Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, which opened with 968,000 in March.

 

Nothing Was the Same also marks Drake’s best week ever. His sophomore album, 2011’s Take Care, launched at No. 1 with 631,000, while his 2010 debut Thank Me Later posted first-week sales of 447,000.

 

Led by the top 10 singles “Started From the Bottom” and “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” NWTS also earns the biggest week for any hip-hop album since Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV bowed at No. 1 with 964,000 in September 2011.

 

Justin Timberlake is expected to knock Drake from the No. 1 spot next week with The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2. Early estimates have the album selling 325,000 copies in its opening week.
