DJ Beestroh

A popular radio DJ has been charged with aggravated assault following an alleged "shootout" with DeKalb police at a local nightclub early Monday.

Ronald Robinson, 39, aka DJ Beestroh, was shot in the lower abdomen by police at the Velvet Room, according to a source who witnessed the melee. Robinson is in stable condition, DeKalb police Capt. Stephen Fore told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Beestroh was spinning at a listening party for rapper Rick Ross, hosted by Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs at the Velvet Room, a nightclub in the 3300 block of Chamblee Tucker Road.

“For whatever unknown reasons, it appears that this DJ who was involved in the shooting with some others turned and shot at the officers, and that’s when they returned fire,” said DeKalb Public Safety Director Cedric Alexander, according to the AJC. But friends (who were at the scene) are telling a different story.

Drake looking crazy
I know it doesn't seem like it from this recent interview with XXL mag, but rapper Drake really does care what you think about him and his wack music. If he didn't, he wouldn't speak on it, would he?

... as for people's opinions and sh*t like that, it's all good. That's what's going to happen. You know people are entitled to their opinion and it takes a certain type of individual to really come online and give their opinion of your music, positive or negative. I don't know if you do it, but I can't say I've ever gone online and posted underneath someone's song, and be like, 'Dope song, son.' Or, 'That sh*t is wack.' I've never done that before. It's just a certain community of people that really feel like that's their outlet and I know that me and my friends aren't any of them so I don't know who those people are and I can't really take their opinion too close to heart just because I'm not really sure what those people are made of and if their opinion's even valid so I just kind of keep it moving.

And here's what Drake had to say about you pesky photographers always catching him looking like.... himself:

I always get caught in the worst, most unphotogenic poses ever. Now people follow me with cameras and are just clicking away and I always feel like I just look mad different in pictures. I hate seeing pictures of myself online when I'm leaving a spot or whatever. I just always get caught laughing 'cause I'm always outside making jokes or whatever with the people, but I always end up looking so stupid like that's the sh*t that I'm always like, 'Man, I wish that didn't happen,' you know?

Note to Drake: It's not the paparazzi, son. That's how you look every day.
