This is not a good time to be a rapper or a member of an entourage. Rappers are beefing up their security amid a rash of high-profile shootings and armed robberies targeting hip-hop figures.

2 people were killed, including a rapper, and four more wounded during shootouts at the Rolling Loud Music Festival in Miami Gardens, Florida over the weekend.

Police are still investigating other incidents of violence and mayhem at the three-day music festival. Rolling loud is slang for rolling ground up marijuana.

Rolling Loud's reputation guaranteed police and federal agencies would flood South Florida with arrest warrants in hand and face recognition technology on their smartphones.

Rappers Kodak Black, 21, and NBA Youngboy, 19, were arrested, as well as NBA player, Phoenix Suns forward Josh Jackson, 22, who refused to leave a VIP area at a nightclub. He was released on $1,000 bond.

Prior to Youngboy's arrest, he was targeted by three gunmen in a passing GMC Yukon who opened fire on his Cadillac Escalade outside the Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida on Mother's Day.

The rapper wasn't injured, but his 19-year-old girlfriend, Kaylyn Marie Long, was shot. She was transported to a hospital with a non life-threatening injury.

Youngboy's bodyguards, who were legally armed, returned fire. One of those bullets fatally struck 43-year-old Hertz Rent-a-Car employee Mohammad Jradi, who was sitting in his van across the street.

A 5-year-old boy was grazed by a bullet. He was treated and released by paramedics at the scene.

The rapper's bodyguards chased and tackled two of the suspects, who were taken into custody by police. Youngboy, whose real name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, performed during Sunday's festival lineup.

About 36 hours earlier, police say up-and-coming Chicago-Based rapper AAB Hellabandz was fatally shot outside the Cameo nightclub on Miami Beach. Police surveillance video showed people running and ducking behind cars as vehicles burned rubber out of the parking lot. Amid the chaos, the gunman jogged away.

Police say none of the shootings over the weekend were connected.

Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez said the 24-year-old rapper, who was born Ameer Golston, was not on the list of performers at Rolling Loud. He was wanted in Atlanta for attempted murder and armed robbery.

Golston is not believed to be involved in the attempted murder of Migos rapper Offset, who was inside a rehearsal studio that was riddled with bullets during a drive-by shooting last week. Offset and the Migos opened up for his wife, rapper Cardi B at Rolling Loud on Friday night.

Police don't think there's a connection between Golston's murder, the NBA Youngboy shooting or an incident involving two tour busses hired by a festival performer. No one was injured on the two buses when a passing car opened fire on Interstate 95 on Friday morning.

"It's all something we are investigating, but it is too early to tell" what ties, if any, exist, Rodriguez said.

Meanwhile, Rolling Loud organizers were unapologetic for their violence-marred festival. The festival's official Twitter account posted a message on Monday: "IF YOU DIDN’T ENJOY ROLLING LOUD DESPITE THE HICCUPS, STAY HOME NEXT YEAR...THIS IS HIP-HOP."

The Twitter account was later suspended, according to the AP.

    I wouldn't be surprised. They are still wearing Gucci and patronizing stores that discriminate against blacks.

  • MJF

    The Gucci ban was legit a week and a half. Snoop went on IG live the other day and asked if we're still boycotting Gucci because he has thousands of dollars worth of pieces he hasn't been able to wear. Do you hear the foolery? Nothing will change because we can't even stand together. My focus is on me, money and my family; I'm done tryna save the world.

    No. his ass really stayed there. Its my thought with this festival, with it being mother's day weekend, all of college graduations, proms and a few weddings too going on,that accom. were most likely hard to come by last weekend. who ELSE would have room at the inn other than Trump's ass? Nobody wants to stay there. my behind would have been WAYYYYY out 40 miles away driving in if it were ME. Not laying my head in anything that bears his name.

  • T Willis

    What are we standing for exactly? The r@c!@l insensitivity of a luxury brand? We should really work towards moving away from these “symbolic boycotts”. We have absolutely nothing tangible to gain by boycotting every luxury brand that creates a r@c!@lly insensitive piece of merchandise. We’re going to get to a point where no one takes us seriously and every outcry will be taken less and less seriously. Who cares who these rappers endorse and wear. If they’re not generating money for us or our upward mobility then that needs to be our barometer for boycott - not this silly sh*t involving Gucci or Barney’s.

    If it ain’t about money, then it don’t make cents. That needs to be our motto. F*ck a boycott that symbolic in nature only. And f*ck giving a f*ck about those who aren’t black, creating black businesses, and hiring black people. This needs to be our focus.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Japan and Africa aren’t analogous. The overwhelming majority of Africa was colonized for decades. The resources in Africa (if not controlled by the government) are controlled by whites and asians. The majority of Africa was riddled with civil wars because of the arbitrary lines drawn by whites and power grabs by rival factions. Many african countries didn’t receive independence until the 60s. Japan was put back together by The USA and it’s western allies while Africa was raped and pillaged by Europe which continues to this day.

  • Topic Influencer

  • CardiB’sAbs

  • MJF

    Yup. I'm not standing for anything actually, which was the jist of my entire paragraph. Have a good day!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    We’re going to get to a point where no one takes us seriously and every outcry will be taken less and less seriously.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I hate this sort of rhetoric. Who is taking us seriously now? Who was taking us seriously in 1773, 1863 or 1963? The oppressor does not get to determine what is considered oppression or the response to said oppression. We have to stop believing that "they" are going to take us serious and do right by use after we do XYZ.

    I get the point about symbolic boycotts, but financial boycotts are not symbolic. Any boycott that has a targeted financial impact has been successful. Every single one. The issue is follow through.

    WARNING:READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!
    Did you read what I wrote? "Hint: It's not the white man's fault." It's a perfect analogy because part of Japan was destroyed by nukes (The uranium bomb detonated over Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 had an explosive yield equal to 15,000 tonnes of TNT.killing and maiming 100'000s) and managed to become a 1st world country. In fact, Japan had two nukes dropped on it one in Nagasaki too. Hiroshima was rebuilt after the war, with help from the national government through the Hiroshima Peace Memorial City Construction Law passed in 1949. They organized and rebuilt their country. What do black folks do? BEG. We can't organize sh*t..! Sure, Japan had some influence of the USA no doubt about it. But they still managed to prosper. Why the f*ck with all the influence does Africa still continue to fail and Black Americans continue to kill up each other over a pair of sneakers?

    Africa has many more natural resources than Japan and much larger and still begging. Are black people that dam stupid??? It's always somebody else's fault. ALWAYS...it's the white man, it's the Asians. . We were colonized, we were tricked, blah, blah, blah. How about WE WERE and ARE DAM STUPID AND IGNORANT? What about that? Who the f*ck so deprived that someone else has to "give them independence?" Look, you and other "on the plantation" black folks can deny "reality" all you want. Black folks are screwed. We have a whole dam continent yet Africans by the hundreds-of-thousands risk their lives every year to come to where?...WHITE FOLKS COUNTRIES. I guess the colonization wasn't so bad now was it. It's no different in the states. Black folks want to leave black neighborhoods to come to where? Say it loud...to white neighborhoods and schools.

    South Africa is turning into a sh*t hole. Without learning how to maintain prosperity for the country, they want to take white folks farms and give it to black folks who are unable to maintain them. There are a few good black farmers in South Africa but that's not the majority. They will destroy it up just like how black folks tear up black neighborhoods. Zimbabwe went the same route and it was known as "The Bread Basket of Africa." It's a hellhole now. They kicked out all the whites the ones who were maintaining the prosperity. We're a pitiful bunch. Kill up each other over a shoe string.

    You may not like it, but I don't care. Intelligent "off the plantation" black folks understand exactly what I mean. I'm over it...! Tired of this constant senseless behavior of black culture. Yeah I said it. OK, go ahead and rant. I'm out got things to do. Not going to bother black folks in delusion. CHILE BYE TOODLES!
    WAKE UP!!!

    We didn’t have millionaires and billionaires in 1773, 1863, or 1963. The likelihood of us being taken seriously in 2019 is very possible because now we have the backing of our own millionaires, as well as other minorities on a global scale, thanks to social media. Our voices are no longer regulated to urban ghettos and barbershops. We now have the financial backing, the exposure, and an international platform to voice our grievances. That’s a huge shift from 1773, 1863, & 1963. The problems of today cannot be solve with the same solutions from 1773, 1863, & 1963. A boycott in the US, doesn’t have the same financial consequences that it had in 1963. We are living in a digital era of automation and bit coin. What luxury brands, like Gucci or Barney’s, can’t recoup from black people, can be gain 1000x over in other markets. So, yes, it’s not tangible and it’s very much symbolic in effort. Gucci isn’t employing our people. Their manufacturing companies aren’t even in the U. S.., so what exactly do we gain by boycotting them? It’s all ego and symbols with black people. The only moments of outrage and anger are almost always linked to some egotistical turf or ownership that we feel has been disrespected. As if that “ownership” - whether it be over a word or some painful caricature - somehow translates to monetary gain or employment for our ppl - which it doesn’t nor has it ever.

    Financial boycotts are futile for black people because the entities have absolutely nothing to gain by soliciting to black people. We aren’t organized and structured like the Jews or the g@ys. Sure we have millionaires and a couple of billionaires lol but we’re not unified. Our (limited) wealth & power is scattered and in disarray. We can’t successfully boycott anyone until we get our “house” in order. Starting with our people, we have to demand more from them. If they can shout all that “support black people! ??” when they want us to buy their clothing, music, beauty, etc then we need them to start opening manufacturing companies in our communities to employ our people. We have too many college graduates who graduate broke and in debt because they can’t find a job. We need our millionaires to help out by creating businesses and establishing a network for professionals - the same way the yts in the IV League. This is what I mean when I say we need to focus on issues that yield tangible results. Instead of worrying about Snoop supporting Gucci, we should look at how many businesses Snoop has created in the black community, how many black people does he employ? If it’s not substantial then ride his @$$ about that - not about whether he’s wearing Gucci lol. Our priorities are just all f*cked up.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    OT, Auntie can you do a story on a woman here in the DC area (Greenbelt MD) who was shot in the head in the parking lot of her job in broad daylight in front of tons of witnesses as she walked to her car. It was clearly a hired hit but it looks like it was one of those whodunit's moments because She was married to Ghanaian Soap Opera Star and she was also married to a locked up drug dealer she tried divorcing just last month. Just before his wife's murder The Actor scrubbed his IG page of all his wife's pics and posted about how important it is to be Faithful to him and how loyalty is everything. The husband also left his previous wife for this woman and married right after they divorced, he said his ex wife was not Submissive enough for him and how important it is for a man to be the lead. This story looks like a lifetime movie in the making. I am very curious to see if they find out who did it. Maybe the drug dealer put a hit out on her or maybe the actor felt betrayed and disrespected when he found out she was already married, or maybe the ex was a woman scorned? But it definitely wasn't random.

  • wigmon68

    Yeah, just the people that showed up for the festival. I am fairly certain, everyone must pass through metal detectors, so hard to get weapons into the actual event which is why the shootings occurred outside it. Heck, Lil Wayne refused to go through the security checks and didn't perform (my guess is he was packin and didn't want to get busted), so they took security to get in very seriously.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I don't disagree with your sentiment, necessarily. But, I agree with everything you are saying in support of it.

    We had black millionaires then. We do not have the backing of black millionaires and billionaires. As clearly evident in their actions (e.g., wearing Gucci, supporting Trump, etc.). We do not have the support of other minorities either. This is all wishful thinking and completely contrary to statistics and data.

    In regards to financial boycotts, I suggest you do some research. Blacks are one of the biggest consumers on earth.

    Just a year a ago I think, the new mayor for the beach was saying that they want to clean the beach up. They want to bring a certain crowd back.

    Been following on local news, they showed pics of husbands today.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    SMDH dayumm! That's just as bad when me and my boyfriend went to Johnny Rockets in NJ, the bill was $55 and by the time we got to the Hotel in NY that bastard charged $20,000 on his credit card but somehow it was $20,000 at Johnny Rockets. He never got the phone call the credit card company tried calling because we most have been in a bad area so I guess they left a message so when he called to check the purchase over the phone our Jaws dropped!!!!!! when it said $55 purchase then $20,000 purchase.... Of course they took care of it but just goes to show you it takes only a few minutes for ninja's to catch you slippin. he tipped that fool good too. smdh

  • Scromes1212

    That's cool but just keep that same energy for all 18 or 19 year olds. That's my only point

  • Scromes1212

    What cost 20 grand in Johnny Rockets lol?

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I didn't see the drug dealer pic is he black? I did see the actor's pic, he is kind of handsome but looks like he can be the devil if you get him wrong. It's something about his eyes that looks evil.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    That's what we was saying!!! like why would you let that go through! It made no since to use either but that's what the automatic phone thingy said. lol

  • NeverSurprised

    Actually, we had black millionaires looooong before the 1960s. At his death in 1875, that's EIGHTEEN seventy five, the only black broker on Wall St, Jeremiah Hamilton, had amassed a net worth of $2 mil dollars, mostly through various insurance scams. In today's dollars, his $2 mil would have been worrh bout.

    There is s very lobg list of successful black entrepreneurs going back generations. Annie Malone founded of Poro College, a commercial and educational business focused on cosmetics for black women, later developed a chemical that could straighten black women’s hair without causing damage to the hair or scalp. Through the school and the business, Malone created jobs for 75,000 women and amassed a net worrh of $14mil.

  • Sweetness

    Awwwh...man childs?...fatherless boys...double Awwwwwh ??

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I Don't understand why these rappers can't just make music make their millions and build empires like Ice Cube and woman beating ass Dre? even Snoop Dog is comfortable, these dumb kids today. smdh Like the KKK said we don't have to kill black folks no more because they are doing a good job of killing each other. smdh

  • oshh16

    I saw two black men

  • Yoni7

    OH MY!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    lol I stayed there too. The service was excellent! BUT it was long before that fool became President. He was just on his show at that time using very limited words so I THOUGHT he was okay back then. lol

  • Jordan’s Memory

    shidddd I wasn't boycotting shyt! I paid good money for my handbags and I had no problem rocking it during all this protest mess. lol

  • Jordan’s Memory

    He gets on my nerves! he always trying to tell people to get on the bandwagon and boycott something because SOMEBODY PISSED HIM OFF, he tried to do that at Houston's my favorite restaurant. I have never got anything less than great service while eating there. They got the best Filet mignon!!! lol but anyways, he wanna get an attitude because they didn't want his friends walking up in there dressing like whores and I don't blame them, so now he wanna call them racist. boy bye!

  • T Willis

    Yep and Madame CJ Walker. There weren’t “a lot” of black millionaires and they weren’t touted as millionaires back then for good reason.... although, I appreciate the trivia ??

  • Jordan’s Memory

    EXCELLENT!

  • EasyBreezy

    Chile.... I hate that you are correct.

  • sunni_daze

    All these rappers songs are ass and it makes me think that the industry is purposely signing these demonic and toxic people to destroy the minds and moral of the youth.

  • EasyBreezy

    Snoop's new low....damn!

  • T Willis

    You’re right, we had millionaires before 1963. That also wasn’t the point of my comment, but I like the deflection tactic lol. You know as well as I do that the black millionaires that existed back then weren’t touted as “black millionaires” because of Jim Crow laws and for their own safety. We really didn’t even learn of these individuals’s wealth until many years later, but I digress...

    If the research you’re implying is about that article on how black people have the spending power of a trillion, then, yeah, I’ve already researched lol. I also read that that number comes from the purchases of alcohol, beauty products, and tobacco. This only reinforces *my* point that financial boycotts are futile because we’re no unified and have no (unified) control over our spending power. We can’t force black ppl to not support Trumpf or to boycott Gucci when they’re broke, unemployed, and living in low income slums. Like I said, our efforts would be better spent holding black millionaires accountable - or the ones that solicit our support - like Jay when he started Tidal and started all that “black ppl need to support black!” Or Diddy and his campaign for black excellence. If they want our support then they need to use their money and their clout to employ black ppl.

    If you are in support of that then what’s the argument?

  • T Willis

    You don’t stand for anything and felt the need to post that on a black blog frequented by black ppl? Ok ??

  • T Willis

    This is more then juvenile stupidity. There’s something in the culture that encourages this type of reaction. We’ve all been 19, but we never acted out to this extent and gotten away with it. Celebrity or otherwise...

  • T Willis

    Lol that situation is different. We still don’t know what happened that night between CB & Rihanna. Rihanna admitted to going through his phone and hitting him first. Chris was wrong for what he did, but if Rihanna really did instigate the situation by going through his phone and throwing the first attack, then she was dead @$$ wrong too. Just because Chris won the fight doesn’t mean Rihanna wasn’t the initial agitator and aggressor. We know how females are and we know how quickly an @$$ beating can happen cause they slick with the mouth.

  • Look@m3

    LMAO I cant!!!

  • MJF

    I said what I said baby. Jesus loves you, have a blessed afternoon.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Chris Attoh is the husband

  • CaramelDrop

    Cerci deserved all that rage by herself She basically served those people a death sentence. I think Jon Sno will be ready to take the throne now.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    i now believe "Winter Is Coming" is actually jon snow...and what we have thought to be snow falling on the iron throne all this time is in fact ash from the battle. BTW: I HATED HATED them trying to romanticize Jamie and Cersi's incestuous relationship. I thought he would have just killed her.

  • Gloria

    Yep. You nailed it. That’s exactly what they are doing. They gotta keep the sheep sleep.

  • Gloria

    No. None of this happened inside the festival, except Kodak black getting arrested right before he was suppose to perform.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Been following this ..That wife who had NOT divorced her first husband (MAJOR BIG TIME DRUG DEALER) was living in THEIR HOUSE that bares both of their names with her 2nd husband (Actor). Sadly she lost her life but it seems she didn't choose her mates to well and was on some affairs of the heart stuff.....

  • Gloria

    I won’t be attending the festival ever again but I doubt that it will be cancelled. None of the shootings happened inside the festival and there wasn’t any crazy fights. The festival was ok, with exceptions to other things. All these rappers in one city (Miami) tho.... ish was bound to pop off

  • Eileen

    I agree! I am so TIRED of the demon industry I ment record industry destroying our men or whatever is left of them! They are sad little manchilds that prolly will NEVER marry, be good husbands and build in our community but they will spread their seed to some dumb little girl that is fatherless as well...smh

  • Marlika

  • Shamwow

    Omg I think it’s possible Arya might take down the dragon queen.

  • Shamwow

    Yes Jon was utterly disgusted. She lost him that day for sure.

  • Shamwow

    Lol I thought she roasted them because Kings Landing loyalty is as shifty as Varys. But she literally went against all of her “morals” then again after losing Missandei, Jorah, Two dragons, her husband and son. She’s like eff these people.

  • Shamwow

    How will anyone get close to kill her, Tyrion better not return home.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Flat out.

  • Kimocha

    I'm still disturbed by the fact that their IS a such thing as "Hip Hop Police".... To me it's just another form of racism and discrimination bc they don't have this for other genres of music!

  • E Ethel Ballys

    Preach...

  • Dowoop

    Tyrion and Sansa gonna reunite and sit on the iron throne together after Jon and Danaerys kill each other....lol I kid
