Crime, Drive By, and Family: Two Men Arrested and Charged In Connection To The Murder of Rapper Chinx Drugz @balleralert Two Men Arrested and Charged In Connection To The Murder of Rapper Chinx Drugz - blogged by @MsJennyb (via @lisaevers) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Two years after the fatal drive-by shooting that claimed the life of New York rapper, ChinxDrugz, the NYPD have finally made an arrest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, 32-year-old Quincy Homere was arrested on Thursday and has since been charged with murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fox 5 NY reporter, Lisa Evers shared a video of the suspect on social media, which showed Homere covering up his face as police brought him inside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shortly after the video surfaced, TMZ reported that a second suspect was also charged in connection to the crime. 26-year-old Jamar Hill was charged with murder, assault and criminal possession. According to TMZ, both men were already serving jail time on unrelated charges when they were arrested and charged for Chinx’s death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although it remains unclear what led police to the suspects or what exactly linked them to the murder, as it stands, the family and friends of the late rapper will receive some justice.

We finally are recognizing the long-term impacts," Biden said, specifying that women should be able to receive long-term help at such centers. "It's the next great frontier I want to be part of." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During his speech, he also highlighted the bravery of those who have been subjected to sexual assault and have shared their stories in recent media. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "It's hard to come forward … don't let this slow up," Biden said. "This is time to fundamentally change the culture of how women are treated in American society ... The culture is changing because so many brave women — knowing they were going to be vilified — are coming forward. Look at all these men have rightfully lost, now. Million dollar contracts! That wouldn't have happened a year ago, five years ago, 10 years ago, so keep pushing,” said Biden. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Entertainment Weekly reports the centers are still in its early stages of preparation. This isn’t the first time the two have made efforts to diminish sexual harassment and assault. Back in October, Gaga and Biden teamed up to promote ItsOnUs, a non-profit that educates people on how to target and prevent sexual assault on college campuses.

One, in particular, was TreyGanem, a 46-year-old businessman who heard about the shooting and drove 100 miles to Sutherland Springs to give the victims a proper goodbye. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ganem runs a casket design company in Edna, Texas, a small town just east of Sutherland Springs. He and his seven employees build personalized caskets that typically cost about $3,500. However, he's offered to create custom-made coffins for people whose lives were taken that Sunday at First Baptist Church. He currently has 15 requests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When I first started five years ago, children burned in a fire in Edna, Texas. I donated caskets to the family. I knew the kids” he told CNN. “It was the most emotional time in my life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He shared the same sentiments about SutherlandSprings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Immediately my heart opened up and I was like ‘yes, we can do this,'” he said. “It’s a small town. People that felt like they were safe ended up in this tragedy.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ganem's caskets are always personalized and will range from fitting younger victims to older victims. In this case, his smallest is for a 1-year-old girl. The casket maker says he sees what he does as a way to help families get through this depressing time.

They never show up to any of your events, wish you well, or just there to be a supportive friend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many of us are excellent friends and try to be positive in every aspect of our life. At times, we feel cheated out of the friendship because you have shown your support and loyalty towards them but haven’t received the energy back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, it’s time to get rid of the vibe killers. I️ know this sounds like an easy thing to do but you have some people that do not realize the company they have allowed in their corner until it’s too late. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The positivity that you have constantly shared with your so called “friends,” needs to be redirected towards your endeavors. Don’t stop being positive. Just give it to those that will appreciate it as much as you do.

As Trump continues to reverse Obama-era legislations, alongside Jeff Sessions, who is eager to reignite the war on drugs, Jay Z shared his thoughts on Trump and the current state of politics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I believe that we are resilient, especially us as black people and especially the culture. We’ve been through so much more than this guy,” he said. “This guy, I’m looking at him like, man, this is a joke, with all – I can’t even say with all due respect – with all disrespect.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Until everyone is free, no one is free,” Jay added. “Period. That’s just a fact. We are all linked some kind of way. So if you oppress a certain people, everyone is in danger, karmically and in real life. If I’m being oppressed and you have this big, nice mansion, I’m coming inside there. That’s going to happen, that’s just how life is.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the country is struggling with racial injustices and increased hate crimes in the wake of the Donald Trump era, Hov believes it is something that we, as a nation and culture, can overcome. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I don’t think that this is happening if we weren’t prepared to handle it,” he said. “I’m just looking forward to what’s next after that, because usually when things are darkest, then light is on its way.

AyeshaCurry, best known for her work as a chef, author, television personality and dedicated mother-of-two will now be the newest face of the beauty brand, COVERGIRL. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “My philosophy is all about seeking joy and creating balance in life. I’ve shared a lot about how I do this with food, family and faith, but now = through my partnership with COVERGIRL – I want to share how makeup helps create those moments of happiness, confidence and self-expression,” Curry said. “People love when I post about beauty on social media, and of course it’s a big part of prepping for my TV show or an event. But I’m also a working mom without much time to spare, so I’ve figured out how to dial my looks way up or way down, and also to use make up as a way of bonding with my daughters.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The self-taught chef, with the help and support of her husband, used her life-long interest in food to build her brand. The idea, which started as a blog and slowly turned itself into a YouTube channel, ultimately transformed into a TV show called “Ayesha’s Home Kitchen.” Curry’s drive and constant pursuit of her passion is what drew the brand to her, as COVERGIRL continues to partner with people who “fearlessly and relentlessly pursue their passions and boldly express themselves to the world.” Mrs. Curry exemplifies just that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We love a self-proclaimed beauty junkie who speaks her mind and offers strong viewpoints and perspectives,” SVP Ukonwa Ojo said of the brand. “Ayesha has a joyful energy and a big personality, but she’s also extremely relatable. Dealing with things that so many woman face – from raising two children to running a business, to creating healthy meals for her family – she’s found a way to create balance. COVERGIRL loves spotlighting inspiring stories of women achieving their dreams, and inspiring other women to do the same.”
