The-Dream Shares 75% Of His Catalog For $23M

 

LONDON – With a platinum pen that has written dynamite hits such as Rihanna’s “Umbrella” (No.1 in more than 20 countries), Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” (which nabbed the 2010 Grammy Award for Song of the Year) and Justin Bieber’s “Baby” (the most certified song EVER), it’s safe to say Terius Nash b.k.a. The-Dream is a damn good artist.

And instead of waiting for the aforementioned records (among several others) to trickle down into riches, the celebrated singer/songwriter has struck a deal with the Merck Mercuriadis-founded company Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited to sell off 75 percent of his catalog for a reported $23 million.

 

 

The deal includes 302 songs and Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited’s own resources will dole out the payment. The remaining 25 percent will be retained by The-Dream.

“It’s critical for us to set the highest standards with our first acquisition,” Mercuriadis, who once famously managed Elton John and Guns N’ Roses, told Music Business Worldwide. “The-Dream is not only arguably the culturally most important songwriter of his generation but he has written the marquee songs for the culturally most significant artists of our time including Beyoncé, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, JAY-Z and Kanye West.

“It’s an honor for this to not only be our first order of business but also to welcome Dream to our Advisory Board. He is a catalyst on so many levels and a big part of our future.”

The-Dream has a highly active career outside of his own solo projects. In the past year alone, he worked with Hip Hop Heavyweights such as JAY-Z, Nas and Kanye West, and appeared just as enthused to enter into his new situation.

“I’m proud to be part of this beautiful venture,” the 40-year-old star added. “Merck is a music titan who began his career well before I ever imagined having one. His futuristic views captured my attention and instantly made an impact. Merck sees me as I see myself. I sought out to be my generation’s Babyface and Dr. Dre, he sees the same. In making this decision I said to Merck, ‘I need a Jimmy Iovine in my life,’ not just to nurture my songs but to also help solidify the legacy I seek for myself and my songs even after I’m gone, for my children and beyond. His reply was simply ‘I Got it!, and after [that] came action like the one you see playing out today in real time.”

Music legend Nile Rodgers of Chic and “Get Lucky” fame also attended the big signing at the London Stock Exchange building.

ATLANTA, GA – It seems 21 Savage was following 50 Cent’s “get the strap” mantra over the weekend. The Slaughter Gang rapper was caught on camera flashing a gun in the middle of a brawl on Saturday (June 9).

According to TMZ, 21 was present at a Atlanta area event called the “Big Ass Pool Party” and a large group of people crashed the festivities. TMZ’s sources claim the  argument  began when one of the crashers began talking to a woman in 21’s clique. A crasher allegedly pulled out a gun, which prompted 21 to grab his own piece.

Video of the incident showed 21 grabbing a firearm as the brawl spilled out into a yard. One man was knocked to the ground in the skirmish, but no shots were fired. Police shut down the party upon their arrival.

It's been rumored for years that adult film star Kakey has gotten romantic with Drake, and now she's claiming that he bought her breast implants.

Gossip site Fameolous posted a screenshot of a comment thread on one of Kakey's Instagram posts. One user commented on her breasts, saying how they were "sittin nice [sic]," and she replied, "thanks to Drizzy." Drake has yet to respond to her claims.

Like many rap artists, Drake is no stranger to beef. But the latest involving Pusha T and his killer new diss track, “The Story of Adidon,” has left some fans and onlookers scratching their heads. Why was Drake in blackface? Where did Pusha get that photo? Does Drake really have a secret love child? And what’s all this about invoices and fashion wars, again?

On Tuesday, Pusha T dropped “The Story of Adidon” on YouTube without a lot of fanfare, but it immediately caused a sensation, garnering 2.5 million views in less than a day. And no wonder — was that Drake in blackface on the cover? (Yes. Yes it was.)

Pusha T Diss Drake. By saying Drake has a child from a kid from a stripper. Pusha T also stated that drake dad left him at the age of five. Pusha’s track was a full-on Drake diss, containing lyrics like, “Let’s have a heart-to-heart about your pride / Even though you’re multi, I see that your soul don’t look alive.” The song mocks Drake’s dad, skewers Drake’s attitude toward blackness, and accuses Drake of being a deadbeat dad to Adonis, the son he’s rumored to have fathered with a French woman named Sophie Brussaux, a former porn actress, in October 2017.

The hip-hop pantheon is broad, however at its center, the diversion remains a government. The possibility of sovereignty has since quite a while ago penetrated the progressing account, definitely bringing forth wars of progression; the idea of competing for the crown isn't completely new to the normal hip-bounce audience. Consider Kendrick Lamar's currently scandalous "Control" verse, in which he singled out every single conceivable inquirer. It doesn't make a difference your identity. There must be one, and by Kendrick's own particular confirmation, the position of authority is involved.

Enter J. Cole. Popular assessment has named him one of the trifectas of current GOAT contenders, close by Drake and the previously mentioned Kendrick. Normally, such grandiose family would naturally put him in nearness to the crown. He would, all things considered, have an immense armed force of help backing his claim. However, the wonderful shutting words on J Cole's "Fire Squad" ring out. While he may connect to the crown, this is on the grounds that he tries to decimate it for the sake of solidarity.

To fortify the idea, hope to "Note To Self," the end track of 2014 Forest Hills Drive. In the midst of a profoundly individual monolog of sorts, Cole paused for a moment to address the presence of hip-hop "crown," and the negative confinements expedited by a government. "I'm sad I needed to come grab the crown right snappy," he says, tending to Drake, Kendrick, and Wale. "I needed to do it to demonstrate n****s it ain't no more motherfuckin' crowns man. We gotta be the case, we gotta demonstrate these n***s men, it's affection at the best."

Maybe that is the place his notoriety for being a considerate God originated from. To many, Cole has turned into a "surfer-Jesus" model, wandering the lanes, shoeless, doling out intelligence while control rises behind exhausted eyes. He's not here for the battle, however, he is capable at it. Actually, few can show improvement over Jermaine. Be that as it may, it goes past that; the regard is clear in his connection with fans, who relax in his essence with worship. Watch the recording underneath, which finds an elite horde respecting his triumphant come back with rambunctious acclaim.

 

This week, Cole set the world ablaze with the unexpected to uncover of his up and coming collection K.O.D. In addition to the fact that it would drop within seven days of the underlying declaration, however, it would be joined by a string of private, allowed to-go to listening sessions for the fans. What's more, lo-and-view, the subjects landed by the thousand. Whole New York City squares were loaded with excited Cole supporters, who transparently talked about the rapper and his discography with the measure of adoration saved for a generational ability. What's more, with an inventory bragging Born Sinner, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, and 4 Your Eyez Only is it reasonable for say that Cole has earned that status?

From numerous points of view, the unexpected show evoked pictures of what Beatlemania probably felt like, Which J. Cole appears to rise above mortality. Watching film of the show can feel grinding now and again, because of the sheer volume of energized yells and shouts. However, there's a persona encompassing Cole that appears inconsistent with his sheer omnipresence. You once in a while observe his name in the features; the man has devoted himself to the music and arrives absolutely without anyone else terms. The steadfastness he's earned from his fans is crazy. It resembles a clique following, yet exponentially bigger.

The individuals who announce J. Cole to be the GOAT do as such gladly, with a feeling of respect. He could take two or three years off, and the force will stay unaltered. For example, the reaction to his underlying K.O.D. declaration, which landed around the same time Drake uncovered his collection title and discharge month. In some ways, it felt as though Cole grabbed Drizzy's thunder, in this way cementing himself as one of only a handful couple of who can. Assume he and Drake were to have dropped around the same time - who gets the first hearing in?

 

 

Normally, Cole's persona has rendered him a lightning pole for feedback, especially from the individuals who feel put off by the possibility of "cognizant rap." To be reasonable, marking Cole as a "cognizant rapper" can in some cases feel like a misnomer; genuine, he addresses racial and social shameful acts, but on the other hand, he's been known to be unrefined and unpleasant around the edges. This is, all things considered, the man who once diverted Eminem-around 99, rapping "My verbal AK's kill faggots, and I don't intend no insolence at whatever point I say faggot, affirm faggot?" Hardly the ideal example for political-rightness that some of his spoilers paint him to be.

By one means or another, you have best in class, self-claimed "trolls" like Lil Pump and Smokepurpp saying "fuck J. Cole" in a confused endeavor at clout pursuing; recall this went down sometime before "Gucci Gang" at any point flew off. Similarly for No Jumper's Adam22, who put Cole on impact more than once, notwithstanding comparing his fans to Juggalos; that is, until the point when he really ran into him and continued to cleanse all hints of any Cole related antagonism. Truth be told, Adam appeared to have left the experience feeling really lowered. That is, fundamentally, the Cole impact. It's anything but difficult to overlook how monstrous his shadow truly is. Maybe that is precisely what he needs.

So what would we be able to anticipate from the looming arrival of K.O.D, or King Overdose cut Kill Our Demonz cut Kidz On Drugz? Early impressions appear to recommend vocal experimentation, "808s", and subjects going from weed to his mom, to charges. At the season of composing this, the collection cover has as of late been disclosed, uncovering a scary, stimulating fever dream. However, there stands Cole, eyes wicked, enhanced in the articles of clothing of sovereignty. One thing is sure. The crown, which Cole so gladly obliterated every one of those years prior, appears to have been reforged. What's more, think about where it's sitting.

J. Cole New Album [KOD]

 

 

 

Apparently out of the blue, J. Cole reported for the current week he was dropping another studio collection titled KOD on Friday (April 20). Presently, the Dreamville originator has shared the cover art and tracklist for the album.

The cover craftsmanship includes the words "This collection is not the slightest bit expected to extol habit" and illustrations of a few youngsters tasting lean, grunting cocaine and smoking weed. As far as visitor recognizes, the puzzling "Execute Edward" is the sole recorded component.

The project will mark the Dreamville founder’s fifth studio album and follow-up to 2016’s 4 Your Eyes Only. 

Cole previewed the album during surprise shows in New York City on Monday (April 16) and London on Tuesday (April 17). No phones, cameras or bags were allowed inside.

This isn’t the first time Cole has dropped an album on short notice. In 2014, he released 2014 Forest Hill Drive with little to no promo and without any lead singles, and the album still went double platinum (with no features).

Check out the cover art and tracklist below.

Amy Locane, Melrose Place, Court order

 

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A former "Melrose Place" actress whose three-year prison term for a fatal 2010 auto crash sparked outrage from the victim's family and prompted legal appeals must return to court for a second re-sentencing.

 

A New Jersey appeals court ordered the new sentencing Friday for Amy Locane, writing that the trial judge's re-imposing of the same sentence last year didn't adhere to an earlier appellate ruling and didn't take into account the severity of the crime.

"The trial judge's legal analysis was not significantly different the second time he sentenced defendant than it was on the first," the three-judge panel wrote. They ordered the re-sentencing to take place before a different judge.

James Wronko, an attorney for Locane, said Friday he was preparing an appeal to file with the state Supreme Court. Wronko said Locane "clearly acknowledges her role in this case and is extremely remorseful for what occurred."

Locane, who acted in 13 episodes of the popular Fox series and also appeared in several movies, served about two-and-a-half years of a three-year sentence for the 2010 accident in Montgomery Township that killed 60-year-old Helene Seeman and seriously injured Seeman's husband, Fred. She was released in 2015.

Locane was convicted of vehicular manslaughter, assault by auto and other offenses and faced a sentencing range of five to 10 years on the most serious count.

Prosecutors had sought a seven-year sentence.

 

Locane's defense contended the crash was an accident and that a third motorist, whose car the actress had bumped into at a traffic light in the minutes before the accident, distracted her by honking at her and chasing her after being rear-ended.

Though the indictment charging Locane didn't mention intoxication, a state expert testified her blood-alcohol level was likely about three times the legal limit and that she was driving roughly 53 mph in a 35 mph zone at the time of the crash.

After the initial 2013 sentencing, the appeals court in 2016 ordered a re-sentencing and instructed state Superior Court Judge Robert Reed to offer additional justification for his decision to downgrade one of the charges and impose concurrent rather than consecutive sentences.

In Friday's opinion, the appeals court noted that while the jury convicted Locane of the lesser offense of second-degree vehicular manslaughter — prosecutors had sought aggravated manslaughter, a first-degree crime — Reed then downgraded that to a third-degree offense and imposed the lightest sentence available in that range.

"We fail to see on this record where the interest of justice demands a downgrade," the appeals court wrote. "Accordingly, we vacate the downgrade."

Wronko defended Reed's actions and said the judge was intimately familiar with the case and his imposed sentence accordingly.

"He's not known as a liberal defense judge," Wronko said. "He thought in his own evaluation that the appropriate sentence was three years in state prison."

Wronko said Locane could have to return to prison if a new judge upgrades the third-degree conviction to a second-degree conviction. A second-degree conviction carries a five-to-10-year prison sentence.

Halsey Exposes her Crotch (Panties On)

Singer-Songwriter Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, known professionally as Halsey, was caught with her dress "open".
Some commentators are reporting that this was a publicity stunt but we disagree. Look at that flirtatious split; this calamity (blessing for some) was bound to happen. Show those perfect legs girl.

Link to this post

Revelist stated,
Given the "daring" cut, Halsey knew that the gown came with some, um, risks, which is why she made sure to wear underwear under her dress. However, that didn't stop tabloids from reporting about her "exposed crotch."

Fed up with tabloids exploiting her image for clicks, Halsey took to Twitter to set the record straight.

"I had on an entire pair of high cut black underwear under the dress," Halsey tweeted. "You can’t slap a censor bar over black fabric and make everyone think my pu**y is out." "Tabloid culture never fails to surprise me," she added.

Anyway, Get it Halsey-YOU ARE crawfish spicy on Fat Tuesday.

Donald Trump Fires Back At JAY-Z Following CNN Interview

fter JAY-Z referred to Donald Trump as a “superbug” during the premiere of CNN’s The Van Jones Show on Saturday (January 27), the current POTUS fired back. On Sunday (January 28), Trump headed to his favorite mode of communication — Twitter — to respond to the Hip Hop giant and patted himself on the back for a decline in the African-American unemployment rate.

 

 

 

 

Trump’s retort was specifically aimed at Hov’s answer to Van Jones’ question about whether it’s acceptable for Trump “to say terrible things but put money in our pockets” amid Trump’s assertion that unemployment for African-Americans has dropped.

The 4:44 mastermind refuted that claim “because it’s not about money at the end of the day. Money doesn’t equate to happiness. It doesn’t. That’s missing the whole point.”

He added, “You treat people like human beings. That’s the main point. It goes back to the whole thing — ‘treat me really bad and pay me well.’ It’s not going to lead to happiness, it’s going to lead to, again, the same thing. Everyone’s going to be sick.”


As reported by CNN, there’s been a slight improvement. In 1990, only 11.3 percent of African-Americans had four-year college degrees, compared to 22 percent for whites, according to Census data. In 2017, those numbers had risen to 24 percent and 34.5 percent.

Hov was the first guest on The Van Jones Show and during the conversation, he opened up about his marriage to Beyoncé, the #MeToo movement and his critically acclaimed album, 4:44.

(The original version was published on January 27, 2018 and can be found below.)

JAY-Z already confessed his extramarital affair on his 14th studio album, 4:44. On the title track, he issued an apology to his wife Beyoncé and seemed genuinely haunted by his indiscretions.

“I apologize often womanize/ Took for my child to be born/ See through a woman’s eyes/ Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles/ Took me too long for this song/ I don’t deserve you,” he rapped. Now, as the first guest on The Van Jones Show on CNN, Hov explains in further detail why he decided to fight for his marriage.

“[She’s] my soul mate, the person I love,” he said. “For us, we chose to fight for our love. For our family. To give our kids a different outcome. To break that cycle for black men and women.”

He added, “We were never a celebrity couple — we were a couple that happened to be celebrities. We are real people.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the Hip Hop mogul touched on several politically charged topics, including the #MeToo movement. He believes it’s comparable to civil rights struggles.

“What we’re finding out?,” he asked. “It’s like racism — it existed the whole time. It’s almost like we normalized it. It’s the normalization of the things we do to survive. “I believe everything happens for a reason. Everything is a learning experience — the good, bad and the ugly. You know, this had to happen … What’s the alternative? You have to survive in America … things needed to be uncovered for the world to correct itself. … This had to happen for the world to purge itself.”

Although the full interview isn’t available (yet), watch a clip above where JAY-Z opens up about his firstborn daughter Blue Ivy, Trump’s “shithole”comment and the aforementioned #MeToo movement.

Nelly Accused Of Sexual Assault By 2 More Women

 

AUBURN, WA – Nelly was accused of sexual assault by 21-year-old Monique Greene and subsequently arrested last October. Now, two more women have come forward asserting the multi-platinum-selling rapper sexually assaulted them as well. According to The Daily Beast,new court documents filed earlier this week claim Nelly has made a habit out of inviting fans backstage where he touches them inappropriately and, in some cases, masturbates in front of them.

The document includes another incident involving two women from the United Kingdom, identified as Jane Doe 1 and 2, who allege Nelly assaulted them while he was overseas. One of them women says the 43-year-old artist called her a “cunt” after not consenting to intercourse.

The Daily Beast reached out to Greene’s attorney Karen K. Koehler who said one accuser is a sergeant in the U.S. military, while the other is an English mother who doesn’t want to relive the trauma of what allegedly happened to her.

“They didn’t ask for this,” Koehler said. “You’re hanging out with the artist and it’s fun and then things change … in an instant.”

Koehler also says more accusers are planning to come forward.

Nelly was arrested on October 7, 2017 in Auburn, Washington. He denies any sexual assault ever occurred and is planning to countersue Greene after she threatened to sue for defamation and sexual assault.

(An updated version of this article was published on December 20, 2017 and can be found below.)

Nelly’s rape accuser has been identified as Seattle club host Monique Greene. After initially being uncooperative with prosecutors, Greene now wants to sue the Country Grammar rapper for sexual assault and defamation, according to TMZ.

But Nelly’s attorney Scott Rosenblum said he plans to countersue. “It comes as no surprise that Ms. Greene filed a lawsuit against Nelly seeking money after we announced our intention to hold her accountable,” Rosenblum said. “We always believed her accusation was motivated by greed.”

The alleged incident occurred on the morning of October 7 after Nelly’s Seattle concert. Court documents obtained by TMZ say Greene was drinking with Nelly and his entourage before getting into an SUV with him. After being taken to his tour bus, which was parked in a Walmart parking lot, she allegedly sat on Nelly’s bed and he started masturbating. Despite Greene’s efforts to stop him, he then allegedly had sex with her against her will.

Greene reportedly said she was screaming that she wanted to leave. Consequently, an entourage member pushed her off the bus and Nelly promptly tossed her a $100 bill with the words, “Bye bye.”

In addition to the alleged sexual assault, Greene is also suing Nelly and his team for kicking off a “smear campaign” against her, saying she was only after “money, fame and notoriety.”

The second-degree rape charges against Nelly were dropped earlier this month.

(The last update on this article was published December 16, 2017 and can be found below.)

The moment a person is accused of sexual assault, their reputation is automatically soured — guilty or not. Nelly, the recent subject of an alleged rape case, plans to sue the woman who accused him of the crime to not only clear his name but also help sexual assault victims.

The “Hot In Herre” rapper’s attorney Scott Rosenblum told TMZ, “Nelly has suffered very real damage to his reputation. He has incurred economic loss and painfully has watched his family suffer. As a result Nelly is planning to proceed with litigation as the first step in restoring his reputation.”

He added, “This type of reckless false allegation cannot be tolerated as it is an affront to the real survivors of sexual assault.”

The 42-year-old rap vet was accused of sexual assault by a 21-year-old Seattle woman on October 7. She claimed the incident happened on a tour bus that was parked in a Walmart parking lot in Auburn, Washington.

Nelly was arrested but promptly released without charges. The woman later said she wanted to drop proceedings. Due to her unwillingness to cooperate with prosecutors, the case was officially dropped last week. Since day one, Nelly has proclaimed his innocence.

“Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation,” Nelly wrote on Twitter October 7. “I am completely innocent. I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation.”

(The last update of this article was published on December 13, 2017 and can be found below.)

Nelly’s rape case has been dropped, according to TMZ. The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office — based in Washington state — reportedly said the alleged victim’s unwillingness to cooperate made it impossible to proceed with the charges.

Consequently, Nelly wasn’t formally charged with a crime.

The alleged incident happened during the early hours of October 7 on Nelly’s tour bus after he’d just performed in Ridgefield, Washington. The “Hot In Herre” rapper was booked at a Des Moines jail by Auburn Police on charges of second degree rape but soon released.

He denied the allegations via Twitter.

“Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation,” he wrote. “I am completely innocent. I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation.”

The 21-year-old woman who accused Nelly of the crime later said she regretted calling police.

(The last update of this article was published on October 14, 2017 and can be found below.)

After a 21-year-old Washington woman accused Nelly of an alleged rape, the St. Louis rapper was arrested, but promptly released without charges pending a police investigation. The unidentified woman now wants police to drop the proceedings so she can go back to her normal college life.

A letter from the woman’s attorney, Karen Koehler, stated the alleged victim said she regretted calling 911 to report she’d been raped on Nelly’s tour bus after an Auburn, Washington concert on October 7, according to Buzzfeed. 

Although Commander Steve Stocker told BuzzFeed The Auburn Police Department will continue to investigate if any crime took place, the woman, who  still asserts the incident took place, has decided she will not be testifying in any criminal case.

“We do not live in a society where a 21-year-old college student can feel safe enough to pursue criminal charges against a celebrity for an alleged rape,” Koehler wrote. “As she cries alone in her apartment with mounting hysteria, she will learn that the celebrity and his lawyer are issuing public statements that her ‘allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness.’ That her agenda is ‘money, fame and notoriety.”

Koehler pointed out the stress of the entire fiasco has weighed heavily on her client. The woman also believes her privacy was compromised by police.

“People are saying horrible things already,” Koehler said. “She cannot handle this. She is about to break. She wants to close the door. She wants this to end. She just cannot bear it.”

On the other hand, Nelly’s attorney Scott Rosenblum insists the accuser’s story was a “fabrication” and is demanding a public apology.

“Her reckless accusation, once investigated thoroughly, was exposed for what it was — a fabrication,” Rosenblum told BuzzFeed. “A fabrication that has caused Nelly and his family to suffer emotionally and financially. It is not enough. This type of reckless allegation is an affront to women who are real victims of sexual assault.”

(The last update on this article was published on October 8, 2017 and can be found below.)

The story of the woman who was allegedly raped by Nelly has emerged in a new report by TMZ.

The alleged victim is a 21-year-old Seattle resident who claims to have met Nelly at a club. She and some friends were reportedly drinking at his table, got “tipsy” and left with Nelly’s crew for an after party.

The woman says she was then taken to Nelly’s tour bus where he tried to have sex with her despite her objections. According to the story, Nelly told her to “shut up” and said he wanted to have sex without a condom. She refused but he did so anyway.

After the alleged rape took place, she claims Nelly offered her money. When she turned down the offer, another woman approached and told her, “You gotta go.” This unidentified associate of Nelly kicked her off the tour bus and tossed $100 at her.

Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, said his client’s accuser has “zero credibility” and is making a “dangerous, fraudulent allegation.”

“It does not surprise me that she wanted to have her story publicized,” he told TMZ. “That is playbook 101 of a person with an agenda and clearly she has one. The agenda is money, fame and notoriety.”

(The original version of this article was published on October 7, 2017 and can found below.)

After being arrested for an alleged rape on Saturday morning (October 7), Nelly has been released without charges.

The St. Louis rapper’s lawyer Scott Rosenblum and manager Juliette Harris confirmed his release to USA Today. Nelly took to Twitter to deny the rape accusations in a series of tweets.

“Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation,” he wrote. “I am completely innocent. I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation.

“I do want to apologize to my loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting myself in a situation where I could be victimized by this false and defaming allegation,” he continued. “I also want to thank my fans for their unwavering support. They know me. I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim. Thank you.”

“To be absolutely clear. I have not been charged with a crime therefore no bail was required,” he added in a subsequent tweet. “I was released, pending further investigation.”

Following Nelly’s arrest for an alleged rape on Saturday morning (October 7), the 42-year-old rapper’s lawyer Scott Rosenblum has denied the incident.

“Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation,” Rosenblum said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.”

Nelly was booked into the SCORE Jail in Des Moines by Auburn Police on charges of second degree rape, according to Q13 Fox News. The SCORE Jail inmate roster currently doesn’t have a Cornell Iral Hayens, Jr. — Nelly’s real name — in its system.

This is a developing story.
