Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine Signs $10 Million Record Deal From Prison

https://themindunleashed.com/2019/10/rapper-tekashi-6ix9ine-signs-10-million-record-deal-from-prison.html

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine

(TMU) — The controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine claims that he has signed a $10 million record deal while in prison awaiting sentencing on racketeering and firearms charges that he has already pled guilty to. The deal is reportedly with the rapper’s former label 10K, and demands two albums, one in English and another in Spanish, although the record company has declined to comment on the deal.

Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, recently testified in court in a very public trial in order to get his sentence significantly reduced.

Hernandez was initially arrested back in November of 2018 and was facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 47 years, until agreeing to cooperate with federal prosecutors against his former fellow gang members in the Nine Trey Bloods. His testimony resulted in successful guilty verdicts in the cases of Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack.

Hernandez will finally be sentenced on December 18, and he is hoping to serve as little jail time as possible for his cooperation. However, the rapper has become a pop-culture joke since the details of his testimony went viral last month. He is also now a total pariah in the hip-hop industry, and it is unlikely that anyone would want to tour or collaborate with him after his testimony.

While on the stand, Hernandez dropped every name that he possibly could, even high profile artists who didn’t have anything to do with the case, including Cardi B and Jim Jones. After his testimony, Hernandez was expected to have no choice but to join witness protection, as snitching against the ‘Bloods’ is historically a death sentence. Hernandez does not seem to have any fear of assassination though, and wants to return to his career as soon as he gets out of jail.

Shortly after the testimony, legendary rapper T.I. predicted that Hernandez would have no problem returning to the streets, because it is now incredibly common for people to cooperate with the authorities when they get in trouble.

“It’s a bunch of rats walking ’round right now. And that’s the thing that really hurts. They riding ’round with somebody they know done told in they hood right now, because, ‘Well, he didn’t tell on me.’ This cat can come home and throw parties and the parties be popping. It be full. If muthaf**kas don’t fuck with rats, how the hell is this party so packed? And everybody know how cous’ came home. Everybody know what happened,” T.I said in an interview with Big Boy of Real 92.3.

Southwest US Church Leaders Accused of Building Empire on Captive and Enslaved Homeless Labor

https://themindunleashed.com/2019/09/us-church-leaders-building-empire-homeless-labor.html

Church Leaders Homeless Labor

(TMU) — Southern California Christian ministry leaders are facing severe criminal charges from prosecutors who allege that they systematically kept homeless people and recovering drug addicts in captivity, subject them to forced labor and threatened to seize their children if they don’t bend to the will of church leaders.

Long considered an open secret on the streets of California’s cities, homeless victims are alleged by prosecutors to have been subjected to severe rights violations, as well as charges of conspiracy, benefits fraud, and document servitude.

A dozen leaders from Imperial Valley Ministries (IVM) in El Centro faced arraignment in a federal court on Wednesday for their exploitation of rehabilitating drug addicts through its network of faith-based group homes in the state.

Church leader and former pastor Victor Gonzalez, 40, of Brownsville, Texas, and his 39-year-old wife, Susan Christine Leyva, were among those charged.

Homeless people selling candy or begging for donations to sponsor their “recovery” or “rescue” missions have been a common sight in the Golden State for years. As AP reports:

“The leader of a Southern California ministry charged with using deadbolt locks to detain homeless residents and making them turn over panhandling money was no fly-by-night operator. Imperial Valley Ministries was known in the remote desert region for decades of work helping drug addicts turn their lives around.”

In addition to operating five group homes in Southern California, IVM church leaders also control around 30 churches throughout the U.S. and Mexico. Locations included Los Angeles; San Jose, California; Phoenix; Oklahoma City; St. Louis; Louisville, Kentucky; and Memphis, Tennessee, reports AP.

At a press conference, Robert Brewer, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of California said:

“The indictment alleges an appalling abuse of power by church officials who preyed on vulnerable homeless people with promises of a warm bed and meals.

These victims were held captive, stripped of their humble financial means, their identification, their freedom and their dignity.”

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9kcK-a75is?feature=oembed&w=500&h=281]

Since 2013, victims in California and neighboring states were allegedly lured to the homes with promises of free food, shelter, and emotional and spiritual support meant to get them back on to their feet.

Participants were forced to surrender all belongings as well as their passports, drivers’ licenses and documents before being cut off from their families and locked into their rooms with doors nailed shut or sealed with multiple deadbolts, the indictment said.

Leaders at the non-denominational Christian church also forced homeless people to beg for donations for nine hours per day, six days per week.

A list of 29 rules forced adult victims to live in cult-like isolation from the outside world. Rules included a ban on adult victims leaving group homes alone and a ban on communicating with family members or even making phone calls in general because “only God loved them now,” the ministry claimed.

“You can’t go to the front yard, unless told so by the counselor,” the rules read. In some cases, those who entertained notions that they could leave were told that the ministry would snatch their children.

Residents’ shower time was restricted to five minutes while victims were instructed to “at no time” lock their bathroom doors. The list even demands that “you are not to discuss things of the world.”

The leaders also took the money that was gathered by participants and even stole the victims’ welfare benefits and food stamps or Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) cards, prosecutors claim. Prosecutors say that one diabetic resident was refused food or medicine for their low blood sugar.

Another rule explained:

“If receiving any income, 10 per cent will go to tithes, 30 per cent to the home…and the rest will be put away for you by the director.”

“None of the above rules apply to the pastor or his family,” the list added.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

A statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office said:

“Windows were nailed shut at some group home locations, leading a desperate 17-year-old victim to break a window, escape, and run to a neighboring property to call police.”

FBI Special Agent Scott Brunner announced:

“Human trafficking robs victims of their most basic human rights.

Victims of human trafficking are often unseen by society, left pleading in silence.

Today, the FBI is proud to break up the labor trafficking alleged to have been committed by the leaders of Imperial Valley Ministries in Imperial Valley and San Diego.”

U.S. Attorney Brewer remarked:

“This is the most significant labor trafficking prosecution in this district in many years.

[Prosecuted] cases are few and far between because many victims live in captivity and fear, powerless to report the crimes against them.”

Love the Way You Lie

“Love the Way You Lie” is a song recorded by the American rapper Eminem, featuring Barbadian singer Rihanna, from Eminem’s seventh studio album Recovery (2010).

The singer and songwriter Skylar Grey wrote and recorded a demo of the song alongside the producer Alex da Kid when she felt she was in an abusive romantic relationship with the music industry.

Eminem wrote the verses and chose Rihanna to sing the chorus, resulting in a collaboration influenced by their past experiences in difficult relationships.

Recording sessions were held in Ferndale, Michigan, and Dublin, Ireland.

Backed by guitar, piano and violin, the track is a midtempo hip-hop ballad with a pop refrain, sung by Rihanna, and describes two lovers who refuse to separate despite being in a dangerous love–hate relationship.

Interscope Records released the song in June 2010 as the second single from Recovery.

Critics praised its melody but were divided on thematic aspects such as poignancy and accuracy.

Eminem promoted the single with performances at the 2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo, the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and festivals.

The music video, directed by Joseph Kahn, stars Dominic Monaghan and Megan Fox in a violent relationship and shows Eminem and Rihanna in front of a burning house.

The clip had a mixed reception due to scenes of domestic violence.

Reporters suggested that the song and its accompanying video were influenced by Eminem’s and Rihanna’s relationships with their respective ex-lovers Kimberly Scott and Chris Brown.

Critics listed “Love the Way You Lie” among the best tracks of 2010 and of Eminem’s career.

The song won many awards and received five Grammy nominations. It is Eminem’s best-selling single and ranked number one on several record charts, including the United States’ Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks.

The single sold six million copies in the US and one million in the UK. Musical acts such as Cher Lloyd and The Band Perry have performed cover versions.

Rihanna has said that the theme of domestic violence, a topic on which she claims many people do not have insight, is what makes the song effective. She later recorded “Love the Way You Lie (Part II)”, narrated mostly from her perspective.

George II (George Augustus; German: Georg II. August; 30 October / 9 November 1683O.S./N.S. – 25 October 1760) was King of Great Britain and Ireland, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg (Hanover) and a prince-elector of the Holy Roman Empire from 11 June 1727 (O.S.) until his death in 1760.
George was the last British monarch born outside Great Britain: he was born and brought up in northern Germany.

His grandmother, Sophia of Hanover, became second in line to the British throne after about 50 Catholics higher in line were excluded by the Act of Settlement 1701 and the Acts of Union 1707, which restricted the succession to Protestants.

After the deaths of Sophia and Anne, Queen of Great Britain, in 1714, his father George I, Elector of Hanover, inherited the British throne.

In the first years of his father’s reign as king, George was associated with opposition politicians, until they rejoined the governing party in 1720.

As king from 1727, George exercised little control over British domestic policy, which was largely controlled by the Parliament of Great Britain.

As elector, he spent twelve summers in Hanover, where he had more direct control over government policy.

He had a difficult relationship with his eldest son, Frederick, who supported the parliamentary opposition.

During the War of the Austrian Succession, George participated at the Battle of Dettingen in 1743, and thus became the last British monarch to lead an army in battle.

In 1745, supporters of the Catholic claimant to the British throne, James Francis Edward Stuart (“The Old Pretender”), led by James’s son Charles Edward Stuart (“The Young Pretender” or “Bonnie Prince Charlie”), attempted and failed to depose George in the last of the Jacobite rebellions.

Frederick died unexpectedly in 1751, nine years before his father, so George II was ultimately succeeded by his grandson, George III.

For two centuries after George II’s death, history tended to view him with disdain, concentrating on his mistresses, short temper, and boorishness. Since then, most scholars have reassessed his legacy and conclude that he held and exercised influence in foreign policy and military appointments.

Siblings

Siblings play a unique role in one another lives that simulates the companionship of parents as well as the influence and assistance of friends.

Because siblings often grow up in the same household, they have a large amount of exposure to one another, like other members of the immediate family.

However, though a sibling relationship can have both hierarchical and reciprocal elements, this relationship tends to be more egalitarian and symmetrical than with family members of other generations.

Furthermore, sibling relationships often reflect the overall condition of cohesiveness within a family.

Siblings generally spend more time with each other during childhood than they do with parents or anyone else, and sibling relationships are often the longest-lasting relationship in individuals’ lives.

Incest between siblings is most often short-term innocent sexual experimentation by children, but has been an intentional practice among some historical ruling families.
