There are three things you never pack in your carry-on bag when catching a flight: A PlayStation 3 (I'm speaking from personal experience when I tell you it can easily be confused for a bomb), a baby and the choppa. Unfortunately, entertainers never seem to remember this simple rule. And so, yet another rapper has been busted for packing a strap.
The rapper, ironically named Strap is one-third of the Atlanta-based rap group Travis Porter. Officials say Strap had a Glock inside his carry-on.
One of the three rappers in the Atlanta-based group Travis Porter was arrested Wednesday for having a loaded gun in his bag at a security checkpoint at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, police said. The man was stopped at the checkpoint after a screener spotted a loaded .45-caliber Glock inside a carry-on bag, said Jonathan Allen with the Transportation Security Administration. Atlanta police identified the man as Harold Demetrius Duncan Jr., who goes by the name Strap. The TSA contacted airport police, who arrested Duncan, 21, shortly after 8 a.m., Allen said. Duncan, of Atlanta, was charged with carrying a weapon in an unauthorized location and booked into the Clayton County Jail, according to booking records.(AJC)
If you're ever on a plane that gets hijacked, you'd better pray there's a rapper on board.
In other news, as I was making my rounds on Twitter late last night, I couldn't help but notice Teyana Taylor's name had become a trending topic. I figured one of two things had happened: A) She had dropped some nudes or B) She had dropped some nudes. I was right and wrong at the same time, as it was later determined her account had been hacked after her cellphone was lost.
*Can't post the nude pic here, but seek and ye shall find. Ironically, the incident gives a whole new meaning to her song, "Google Me." Oh, the irony.*
Hmmm ... I seem to remember some other nudes of Teyana hitting the web before. Leak once, shame on you. Leak twice, shame on you. Either way, Taylor recently made headlines when she announced that she had been dropped from Pharrell's Interscope/Star Trak imprint despite never having dropped an album.
After a six year run with Interscope/Star Trak Records, Teyana Taylor has been released from her deal according to HipHopNews24-7.com. After the Harlem singer/rapper never saw her single "Google Me" take off, she seemingly hit the back burner. "I officially got my release from Star Trak/Interscope, I was signed for six years and there's a lot of stuff that comes with the industry."(Hip Hop Wired)
Six years, no album. Well, take this recent controversy and flip the script: When life gives you lemons, drop a mixtape. SOHH Watcha Think -- Were the pics really leaked or was it all a well-planned publicity scheme?
Speaking of schemes, check out Joe Budden's "Stay Schemin'" freestyle:
