Published

on

There has been constant series of unfortunate events in Meek mill’s life for the two years. Crushed in a beef with drake he could not keep up with and the recent separation with long time girlfriend Nicki Minaj, the rapper ends up bagging up another headline concerning last december’s shooting in Oakdale. Two men were killed and another two injured after gunfire erupted outside a his concert in Wallingford, Connecticut few days before New years eve. Grieving, The family of one of the New Haven man who was shot and killed following a show decided to file a lawsuit last Tuesday against the venue and, the rapper.

Travis Ward was gunned down in the parking lot of the Wallingford facility on Dec. 30, 2016 as he was celebrating his 31st birthday with his family. Jaquan Graves, 20, also from New Haven was also killed. No arrests have been made.

Two others were injured including Nathan Mitchell, who also is a party in the lawsuit filed in Waterbury Superior Court by New Haven attorney Joel Faxon. Mitchell and Ward did not know each other.

The lawsuit alleges that Oakdale and concert promoters didn’t provide enough security or take measures to control the crowd even though they were aware other Meek Mill’s concerts had ended in gun violence.

“With song titles like ‘body count’ and ‘oh kill’em’ that praise indiscriminate killing and mayhem, the potential for tragic incidents like this should have been properly anticipated and planned for by Meek Mill, his concert promoters and the Oakdale Theatre,” Faxon said Tuesday.

The lawsuit seeks more than $15,000 in damages. Ward was shot several times and died at the scene. He had attended the concert with family members celebrating his birthday. Mitchell was shot once in the right side.

The lawsuit claims that security for the concert was “grossly understaffed” and since the shooting Oakdale has significantly increased security but “far too late for Ward,” the lawsuit said.

Meek Mill is a well-known rap artist. Violence has broken out at other concerts of his. In both Danbury and Wilmington, Del. there were shootings outside of the concert venue once the show ended.

“The venue security was grossly understaffed and ill-equipped to deal with the hazardous environment presented by any Meek Mill concert,” Faxon said. “A strong police presence was required. They were innocent bystanders who ended up in a war zone.”

The shooting occurred moments after the concert ended as people exited into the parking lot. Ward was apparently caught in the crossfire as shots rang out. Faxon said there was no evidence he was targeted and Ward didn’t have a weapon.

Wallingford police interviewed several people who were at the concert with the victims. State Police recovered several shell casings but no weapons were found.

Meek Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, had been under house arrest for violating probation for the fourth time in eight years for a gun and drug conviction. Mill, who grew up in Philadelphia, lost his father and a cousin to gun violence.

A video posted on YouTube appears to show Meek Mill leaving the Oakdale when a shot is fired.

“Look, there’s Meek,” a male voice says, and then the shot is heard. A security guard approaches the person shooting video and tells him and his friends to get down.

Drakeo The Ruler Drops “GTA VI” & “Backflip Or Sumn” Recorded From Prison

Published

on

Drakeo The Ruler is still incarcerated, awaiting a retrial in connection with a murder case that he was already acquitted for.

On July 25, 2019, he was acquitted of his murder and attempted murder charges in a Compton courthouse. However, the district attorney decided to refile charges of criminal gang conspiracy and shooting from a motor vehicle in August, two counts that resulted in a hung jury during his initial trial.

However, he will not let that get in his way as he continues to be one of West Coast’s most promising and original voices, and now back with two new singles recorded through jail phones from forthcoming ‘Thank You for Using GTL’ project.

“GTA VI” and “Backflip Or Sumn” have became instantaneously two must-listen-to songs that thrive to introduce his upcoming 18-track effort ‘Thank You For Using GTL’ inspired by the raps he sent to producer JoogSzn over the inmate telephone systems used in for-profit prisons. However the grainy voice still rides the beat with ease.

Earlier this week, Drakeo dropped his “Vintage & Adventurous” including the not-so-subtle shot at the early release of a particular New York-based rapper. “Tell the truth, I am not 6ix9ine,” he proclaims. A number of collaborators teamed up to remix his greatest hits on Free Drakeo earlier this year including guest appearances by Danny Brown and Maxo Kream.

Earl Sweatshirt held absolutely nothing back when he blessed the “Ion Rap Beef” Remix, opening with a defiant, “F*ck the D.A., free the Ruler/ Sex cancelled, I went right for that medulla/ Talkin’ spicy hella easy, n*ggas hide behind computers.”
