Watch what you drink next time you’re in a strip club.

Four NYC exotic dancers targeted wealthy professionals, spiking their drinks with molly and tricking them into spending upwards of $200,000 in one night.

The victims, included a banker, an attorney, and a doctor. All allege that they showed up to a strip club, where they were allegedly drugged and then driven to Scores in Manhattan and RedHouse in Queens where they were charged extravagant amounts for private rooms, food and “other services.”

The four women, Samantha Barbash, Roselyn Keo, Marsi Rosen, and Karina Pascucci are being accused of doing this several times with different men over a period of four months.

Per StereoGum:

Chicago footwork pioneer Rashad Harden, aka DJ Rashad, is dead. Tweets from friends and collaborators DJ Godfather, DJ Spinn, and Chance The Rapper confirmed Harden’s death.

According to The Chicago Sun-Times, he was found dead today on Chicago’s West Side with drugs and drug paraphernalia found nearby; police suspect a drug overdose. An autopsy is scheduled for Sunday. An official statement will be released Monday morning according to Harden’s publicist.

Harden got his start in the Chicago music scene as a member of dance troupes during his high school years then moved on to spinning records at parties. As a DJ he helped to develop footwork, a style of house music oriented around dance battles that evolved from juke to include skittering, chopped-up beats and walls of noise. As the most prominent member of the Teklife crew, he became a global ambassador for the footwork genre. His most recent album, 2013′s Double Cup, was released on the influential British label Hyperdub, representing a bridge between US and UK bass music.

Harden is survived by a son, Chad, age 9. He was 35. R.I.P.

Rashad’s EP We On 1 was set to drop this Monday. You can stream it below

Ronald “Ra Diggs” Herron was arrested and charged in a 23-count racketeering indictment. Diggs could go away for life if convicted.

While on the streets, Diggs was considered the boss in the Gowanhas Houses in Brooklyn New York. After raiging supreme over the homes, Diggas was actually brought down thanks to littering.

Herron was stopped after he was seen throwing a gum wrapper out the window of the car he was driving. Officers searched him and realized that he was wearing a bullet proof vest.

“I stopped hundreds of people in my career and he’s first person who was wearing body armor,” Police Officer Carlos Anchundia testified in Brooklyn Federal Court recently.

 

Herron has been tied to 3 murders as well as drug dealing. There is allegedly video evidence of undercover officers buying drugs from members of Herron’s crew.

The prosecution is apparently using testimony from Herron’s former associates, his own rap lyrics from YouTube videos, and his tweets against him. Yes tweets.

Diggas was quickly becoming more known for his rapping ability. According to the New York Post, Herron found his way on the feds’ radar around 2000. He was shot by a drug rival in Gowanus and allegedly ordered his associates to kill the gunman two days later, according to court papers.

Herron rapped these lyrics: “I don’t respect the shooter because he shot me in the legs and two days later he was dead, the little n—–. See, if he was smart he would have shot me in the head because I can get ya shot from my hospital bed.

He beat the murder rap and returned to the streets in 2007. Herron allegedly killed Richard Russo in the elevator of a Gowanus building in 2008 and Victor Zapata in a Wyckoff courtyard in 2009.

If found guilty, he could face life in prison

My dude Darryl Nice just sent me over some visulas from D.R.U.G.S #ISED/Land of Flyy. Check out some of their latest designs and more below

Rob Ford

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted Wednesday to buying illegal drugs, as he  faced a heated city council session on whether lawmakers would formally urge the  admitted crack-smoking pol to step down.

City Councilor Denzil Minnan-Wong, a former Ford ally and potential mayoral  candidate, asked Ford if he had purchased illegal drugs in the past two years.  After a brief pause, the 44-year-old said, “Yes, I have,” the Globe and  Mail reports.

The City Council is interviewing Ford before taking up a bipartisan petition  signed by 30 of the city’s 44 council members, urging Ford to apologize to the  city, resign, seek drug treatment and cooperate in a police drug investigation.  Council members do not have the authority to remove Ford, but the motion serves  as a symbolic measure to pressure the mayor to step down.

The disgraced mayor later said he felt he was still a role model for  Toronto youth despite his recent drug scandal. Ford confessed last week to using  crack cocaine, after months of denials. Wednesday’s meeting is the first time  he’s acknowledged illegally purchasing drugs.

young-dro-4

In a recent interview, Young Dro spoke about how his ex was the reason he made his hit “F.D.B.”

His ex and baby mother Tamika decided to have her say in the matter, and reached out to Bossip, where she wrote a sincere letter from her point of view. She claims that Dro only lives 30 minutes away from their daughter, and hasn’t seen her in the past two years.

“I feel that i should say something because I have been quiet about this since this song [FDB] became the “babymomma anthem” since it’s release. I am tired of hearing his fabricated interviews using me as the backdrop or storyline to FDB, It’s ridiculous. Yes it’s been 2 years not 3 as he stated that he has seen his little girl. Djuans whole segment on the FDB IS COMPLETELY FABRICATED. He lies so much ITS SICKENING,the only time he is not lying is when his mouth is SHUT. I Have lived in the same house for 7 years and NOT ONCE IN THE 2 YEARS HAS HE DROVE TO SEE HIS DAUGHTER(wheres the effort?) We live 30 mins away! I am not the typical “babymamma” that witholds the child for personal vindictive reasons. I have moved on and so has he.”

Tamika also claims that she suspended Dro’s visiting rights with their daughter after he allegedly “chose NOT to complete the rehab treatment center he was in which was our agreement.” She adds that, “I won’t go into details of the choice of drug(s) (let’s just say it ain’t the color green)because I respect my daughter enough not to completely air out our dirty laundry(and I’m ITCHING to do it) because at the end of the day that’s still her father and she has to live with this.”

Ceelo Green

“The Voice” judge Ceelo Green was cleared of all charges of sexual assault made by a woman who claims he slipped something in her drink, as the D.A. rejected the sexual assault case on Monday morning. However, the “Crazy” singer was charged with the felony of furnishing ecstasy, according to TMZ.

Authorities reportedly had problems believing the woman’s story after she told them that she and CeeLo had been dating for months and had already been intimate. The drug charges came about after he referenced ecstasy during a taped conversation with the woman. It’s expected that he’ll get probation for the offense.
