Yayo relied on Instagram to send his warning shot while Nas announced his Sweet Chick restaurant franchise is feeding government employees impacted by the shutdown.

As of Friday, the Federal Aviation Administration grounded flights heading to New York’s LaGuardia Airport.
Citing safety concerns stemming from a shortage of air traffic control staff, the FAA’s decision to halt all incoming traffic to one of the country’s largest airports is a significant, if not altogether unexpected development as the government shutdown is expected to drag into its sixth week. Earlier this week the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, the Air Line Pilots Association, and Association of Flight Attendants-CWA issued a joint statement regarding their “growing concern for the safety and security of our members, our airlines, and the traveling public due to the government shutdown.” (Splinter News)
