Frenzy Friday. It's a frenzy heading into Memorial Day Weekend as we kick things off with Drake's obsessed celebrity fan Amanda Bynes running into more legal woes. Speaking of legal woes, it turns out the law is going to end up costing Chief Keef some money. With money still on your mind, contestants had a hard time trying to earn some during "Jeopardy" recently thanks to a rapping Alex Trebeck? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Slow Money Better Than No Money

It looks like Chief Keef is going to have to suffer the consequence that comes with being arrested. Turns out a performance he is supposed to have tomororw night is not going down due to an arrest in Atlanta a few days ago. Journal Sentinel has more:

Chicago rapper Keith "Chief Keef" Cozart, who was arrested earlier this week in Atlanta, will not perform Saturday at 618 Live on Water as planned, reports WTMJ-TV (Channel 4) In January, Cozart was ordered to spend about two months in juvenile detention for violating probation on a weapons conviction. He had received probation for pointing a gun at police in 2012. (JS Online)

It might sound like local news to you, but those shows add up. With child support and handfuls of court cases on his calendar, Chief could end up having even more legal drama in his life when Uncle Sam comes asking for those taxes. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. No Lie

It looks like one of the smartest decisions Drake may have ever made was ignorning all of the outrageous tweets and shout-outs from former child actress turned into Hollywood star Amanda Bynes. It seems like she just can't keep out of trouble, getting arrested in New York City last night? Could she have needed the Drizzy 3 Stroke? TMZ is all over this:

Amanda Bynes was arrested in her NYC apartment Thursday night for marijuana possession and throwing evidence out the window ... TMZ has learned. According to law enforcement sources ... a building official called police after spotting Amanda in the lobby with a joint, acting erratically and talking to herself. We're told when cops arrived they knocked at her door and she let them in. Our sources say when police saw the bong Amanda quickly tossed it out the window ... which fortunately didn't hit anyone on the street below. Amanda, who was wearing a platinum blonde wig, was placed under arrest and went ballistic, yelling, "Don't you know who I am?" She was booked for criminal possession of pot, as well as reckless endangerment and FELONY tampering with evidence. Our law enforcement sources say Amanda was briefly taken to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation and then taken to the station for booking. But the cop shot wasn't the last stop. A cuffed Amanda was then taken to night court just before midnight. She's still there in a holding cell, waiting for a judge. She should get a hearing sometime this AM. (TMZ)

It's pretty sad because despite being someone who looks very outside of hip-hop, she's shown love to artists like Kid Cudi, Drake and yet gone off on them too as well as Jay-Z. Did Drake save his career and maybe even his life by not dealing with Amanda's constant requests for him to smash her? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Wrap-It-Up

Did it take more than 20 years to get Alex Trebeck to kick some rhymes on Jeopardy? Not quite, but it's still something funny to watch as he asks serious questions to contestants hoping to get some big bucks in their pockets. Complex has the footage:

Jeopardy held the College Championship Semi-Final episode on May 15 with a category called "I Got Mad Hip-Hop Skillz." It's just as amazingly awkward as you'd expect it to be--the contestants can't even keep a straight face when Alex Trebeck is rapping the lyrics. Sure, the contestants didn't know a Snoop Dogg lyric nor an LL Cool J one (No, that's not Tupac!) but they did get Kanye West and Beastie Boys right, at least. Trebeck's cadence is generally correct, which is, for what it is, impressive. Watch the hilarious video above--and note how Trebeck pronounces Louis Vuitton. (Complex)

You can't knock Alex for trying. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
