2 Chainz is being sued for $5 million in damages for releasing a video titled “#Is This Your Thot?” making fun of a woman who was backstage at one of his shows. Christine Chisolm says one of Chainz friends, Cap 1, invited her to come backstage at a concert back in March of 2014. What she didn’t expect was the humiliation that came with the all-access pass. In the lawsuit, she claims that after the clip of the rapper calling her a “Thot” on video went viral, she lost her job at a barbershop because the owner didn’t appreciate the negative attention the shop was getting. She also said she gets harassed in public and the video has ruined her reputation. The clip managed to get over 10 million views in the first couple weeks after being posted. By the way, in case you were unaware — while some may consider “Thot” a term of endearment, many use it as an acronym meaning “that hoe over there.” The original video has been deleted, but you can still find copies of it on Youtube.

YG has broken his silence since being shot this month in a Los Angeles recording studio.
The Compton MC tells Billboard that he wasn't actually shot three times -- he claims that the bullet “went in, went out and went back in again." And though he has no idea who did it, he's absolutely certain it wasn’t a rival gang member. YG boasts “I’m a hard guy to kill,” while brushing the whole thing off as “a little incident... I got shot in my hip, but I’m all right.”
But YG realizes he was fortunate. “I got lucky because a main artery is right there, right around the groin. The bullet didn’t go that deep and it didn’t hit any bones.” He did go to the hospital, but he says the next night he went right back to the studio to resume work on his second album, Still Krazy.
Bobby Shmurda is facing new felony charges as he awaits his trial in New York City for alleged weapons and drug possession.
Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Pollard, reportedly was observed being passed a jailhouse shiv last week as he awaited his upcoming hearing -- which was supposed to begin today (Thursday) but has now been pushed back to October. Shmurda’s scheduled to appear in a Bronx, New York criminal court tomorrow on the shank charge.
Shmurda’s attorney, Kenneth Montgomery, announced this afternoon that his client had been offered a plea deal of eight years in prison with five years probation if he copped to criminal possession of a weapon, though he appears unlikely to take that deal at this time.
Shmurda’s friend and co-defendant, Chad “Rowdy Rebel” Marshall, rejected a similar offer of seven years in prison and five years of probation. (Bossip)
