Jeezy Covers ‘The Source’ http://rapradar.com/2014/09/02/jeezy-covers-the-source/ http://rapradar.com/2014/09/02/jeezy-covers-the-source/#comments Tue, 02 Sep 2014 22:30:30 +0000 http://rapradar.com/?p=327839 Watching You.

All eyes have certainly been on Jeezy lately, but all focus is directed on 1-of-2 covers of the 2014 Power 30/SOURCE360. Catch a few excerpts from his cover story below.

On Ferguson:

I just feel like, when things like this happen, you have to build trust within the community. They did all the wrong things. Instead of going there and trying to resolve the situation, they went in there with tasers, riot guns and riot forces, and you can’t come to my neighborhood and not expect us to stand up for what we believe in. You know, that type of sh*t happens in Iraq, that doesn’t happen in Ferguson.

Chris Brown Pleads Guilty To D.C. Assault http://rapradar.com/2014/09/02/chris-brown-pleads-guilty-to-d-c-assault/ http://rapradar.com/2014/09/02/chris-brown-pleads-guilty-to-d-c-assault/#comments Tue, 02 Sep 2014 22:18:14 +0000 http://rapradar.com/?p=283784 Here’s The Deal.

Chris Brown dodged going back to jail when he took the plea deal in D.C. court today for his misdemeanor assault charge. The judge gave him “time already served” when he served his 108 days in L.A. for violating his Rihanna assault case. Do you understand?



After being credited with time served, Chris Brown completed his 131 days and was released from jail shorty after midnight. Once freed, Breezy tweeted:

Humbled and Blessed. Back to the Music and the Fans. Thank you GOD


Chris Brown was sentenced to a year in jail on a probation violation. The violation stems from him being kicked out of rehab in March. The judge is considering his 234 days already served, leaving him with only 131 days left.

In addition to his sentence, Chris was ordered to complete 700 hours of community service, attend anger management sessions and stand trial for his D.C. assault case.
