A Texas judge lost his patience with a juvenile Crips gang member who removed his ankle monitor and shot a 1-year-old baby. The judge sentenced the 12-year-old to 7 years in a juvenile detention center.

The boy broke down and cried during a Zoom detention hearing in September. But the judge told him to save his tears.

"Every time you come in here you cry. You know that, right?" Judge Kim told rapper Lil Rodneyy. "Every single time, you beg me for one more chance. You swear to God, 'On my mama's name,' 'I'm not gonna cut off the monitor, I'm not gonna run off,'" said judge Kim.

The boy, who also answers to "30 Shotz," admitted he cut off his ankle monitor to attend a friend's funeral. But he couldn't recall the friend's name. He told the judge he only knew the friend by his nickname.

The boy's grandfather, who helped raise him, also attended the Zoom hearing.

Judge Kim told the boy he would be detained in a juvenile detention center until he turned 19.

Rodneyy's mother was interviewed after the hearing. She is a single mom who gave birth to Rodneyy when she was 16.

The boy's father abandoned his family, and Rodneyy's mom chooses not to seek child support. She said she was sent away to prison twice when the boy was a toddler. Rodneyy was raised by her father, who lovingly refers to his grandfather as "Paw paw."

Rapper DMX is holding daily Bible studies on Instagram.com amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The 49-year-old Mount Vernon native began holding Bible study online last week to minister to those who are still on quarantine in their homes.

The rapper, who became a born again Christian in between prison stints, took to Instagram Live on Friday to preach to the unwashed masses.

The father-of-15, born Earl Simmons, has spoken candidly about his addiction to rock cocaine and other hard drugs. He began smoking marijuana laced with the drug when he was 14.

On February 10, 2016, DMX was found unresponsive in a Ramada Inn parking lot in Yonkers. A bystander said he snorted an unknown substance before collapsing. No drugs were found on the property.

Rapper Jeezy and "The Real" co-host Jeannie Mai got engaged on March 27 - less than a year after they began dating.

The couple made their relationship Instagram Official in September, after dating just a few months.

While Jeannie says she has met her "equal" in the 42-year-old rap mogul, Jeezy's friends say he is having second thoughts.

Jeezy, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins, is said to be "annoyed" that Jeannie's name always comes before his in news articles.

While urban blogs showed Jeezy some respect, mainstream news outlets gave Jeannie the shine -- which doesn't sit well with the "Thug Motivation" rapper.

Sources say Jeezy is not pleased that his friends believe Jeannie is using him for a come up.

PEOPLE magazine broke the engagement news on Monday, April 6, with the headline: "Jeannie Mai and Jeezy Are Engaged! Inside Their 'Quarantine Date Night' Proposal."

Entertainment Tonight's headline reads: "Jeannie Mai and Jeezy Are Engaged."

E! News also gave Jeannie top billing: "Jeannie Mai & Jeezy Are Engaged!"

London's Daily Mail also lead off with Jeannie in its headline: "'YES': The Real's Jeannie Mai confirms engagement to Jeezy after rapper pops the question during 'quarantine date night."

Jeezy's fans wonder when did Jeannie Mai become a bigger star than their rap idol?

Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

Macho men like Jeezy are used to being the king of his castle and wearing the pants in the relationship. They don't do well in relationships where the woman has more power and fame.

Sources say Jeannie, 41, began dating Jeezy because a Black man will always be viewed as her lesser in society.

Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

Jeezy was previously engaged to an African businesswoman (pictured). He claimed her infant daughter as his own.

Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

There are rumors that Jeannie is pregnant with Jeezy's 2nd child (he also has a grown son). But the pregnancy rumors are unconfirmed.

A$AP Rocky joins the league of rappers whose sex tapes were leaked online for promotional purposes. You know how it goes: rapper, singer falls off and a sex tape or d**k pic leaks.

Although his face is not seen, the tattoos on his lower torso line up with Rocky's.

The 31-year-old "Cockiness" rapper was dragged because Twitter users were not impressed with his average length or girth. Apparently he's too "short" for their liking.

Many of them were upset that he wasted their precious time that they will never get back.

How embarrassing for A$AP.

The hip-hop world is mourning the sudden death of up-and-coming rapper Juice Wrld. The 21-year-old Chicago-born rapper, real name Jarad Higgins, went into cardiac arrest and died early Sunday after an apparent accidental overdose of Percocet.

Percocet is a Schedule II narcotic that contains Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and the opioid oxycodone (OxyContin).

Federal agents were waiting inside a private hangar at Chicago's Midway Airport for the rapper's jet to arrive at 1:30 a.m. Agents reportedly received a tip from the pilot that the plane was loaded with drugs.

A search of the plane turned up 41 "vacuum-sealed" bags of marijuana, six bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup with no labels, two 9 mm pistols, a .40-caliber pistol, a high-capacity ammunition magazine and metal-piercing bullets, law enforcement sources told The Tribune.

No one in the rapper's entourage claimed ownership of the drugs and no charges were filed.

Higgins may have panicked and swallowed a handful of Percocets because the feds searched his private plane in November too.

According to TMZ, customs agents conducted a search of a private plane on November 18 at LAX airport. Higgins was on his way to Sydney, Australia when his plane was searched.

via TMZ -- We're told drug-sniffing dogs were all over Juice and co. and their luggage. It's unclear if agents found anything -- we do know the plane was eventually allowed to take off with Juice on board.

TMZ broke the story ... Homeland Security agents, operating under an FBI task force, searched Juice WRLD's private jet early Sunday morning when it landed at Chicago's Midway Airport.

Rapper Juice Wrld reportedly swallowed several Percocet pills to hide them from police before they could search him at an airport.

Juice Wrld, real name Jarad Higgins, reportedly swallowed the narcotic painkillers after arriving on a private jet at Chicago's Midway Airport around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8.

The rapper and his entourage were detained in a private hangar away from the main airport terminal while federal drug agents conducted searches of their bags.

The feds and other officers were waiting for the plane to arrive from Los Angeles after the pilot called ahead to inform police that the rapper was traveling with guns and 70 pounds of marijuana.

As the agents were going through two carts of luggage, Higgins — "began convulsing (and) going into a seizure," sources tell The Chicago Tribune. An agent administered two doses of Narcan, an emergency treatment to reverse the effects of opioid overdose.

Medics revived Higgins but he was disoriented and bleeding from the mouth after possibly biting his tongue.

The Chicago-born rapper, who turned 21 on Dec. 2, went into cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead at a local hospital at 3:14 a.m, about an hour after he collapsed.

A search of the plane turned up 41 "vacuum-sealed" bags of marijuana, six bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup with no labels, two 9 mm pistols, a .40-caliber pistol, a high-capacity ammunition magazine and metal-piercing bullets, law enforcement sources told The Tribune.

No one on board the flight claimed ownership of the drugs and no charges were filed. Two security guards were arrested for carrying loaded weapons inside an airport.

Percocet is a Schedule II narcotic that contains Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and the opioid oxycodone (OxyContin). Percocet sells for $10-$40 per pill on the street. OxyContin can fetch $40-$80 per pill on the street.

Rappers usually take the pills with lean, aka purple drank. Lean is a concoction of codeine cough syrup, Jolly Rancher candy and a soda beverage.

Lean and Percocets or OxyContin are the drugs of choice for rappers like Juice Wrld who rapped extensively about his drug addictions in his songs.

Rapper Joyner Lucas criticized other rappers for glorifying drug use.

"Juice wrld was 21," Lucas tweeted on Monday. "He was a product of our generation of rappers who glorified drugs and made it cool. Im blaming Yal n***** for this shit. all that lean and pills n***** glorify and talk about. You teaching the kids to do it. Smh you happy now?Rip @JuiceWorlddd. Gone too soon."

Canadian rapper Drake mourned Juice in an Instagram post, saying "I would like to see all the younger talent live longer and I hate waking up hearing another story filled with blessings was cut short".

Two armed security guards who were with rapper Juice Wrld when he went into cardiac arrest and died early Sunday were arrested for carrying loaded weapons inside an airport.

The 21-year-old Chicago-born rapper suffered a medical emergency after arriving on a private jet at Chicago's Midway Airport just after 2 a.m.

Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told The NY Post the rapper, real name Jarad Anthony Higgins, was seen "basically convulsing" inside a private hangar away from the main terminal at the airport.

Other reports noted that Higgins was frothing at the mouth. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead around 3:15 a.m. Sunday.

An autopsy will be conducted on Monday by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Higgins was with a group of about 10 to 12 people - including his entourage of hangers ons, the airplane crew and two armed security guards who were relieved of their weapons by Chicago police.

According to Page Six, the guards had conceal and carry permits valid in the state of Illinois, but the permits didn't allow them to bring loaded weapons inside an airport.

The two men were arrested and charged with misdemeanor gun violations, said Guglielmi. He added that everyone cooperated with police including the two men who were detained.

Higgins shot to fame in 2018 with the release of his SoundCloud EP Goodbye & Good Riddance. The platinum EP featured hit singles "Lucid Dreams", "All Girls Are the Same", "Wasted" (ft. Lil Uzi Vert), "Lean Wit Me, "Armed & Dangerous", and more.

Higgins won the Top New Artist trophy at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in May.

He rapped extensively about his dependency on opioid painkillers and prescription cough medicine containing codeine.

In interviews he talked about mental illness and how he believed mental illness was neglected in the Black community.

He also embraced being a role model to young people struggling with drug addiction. He told Vulture magazine that substance abusers need sympathy, not judgment.

"The way that you help somebody out, reach out to someone, offer them a helping hand, offer them a hug, whatever. The way that you do that is not, I repeat, not, by pointing the finger. Telling them that they're stupid, they're fucking up their life, whatever. Telling them they're a piece of shit for doing what they're doing. That is not the way at all. The way to lead people is to walk, not even in front of them — side [by] side, holding their hand emotionally through music or whatever you do."

Rapper Juice WRLD is dead after suffering a heart attack at Chicago's Midway Airport on Sunday, Dec. 8.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said a 21-year-old male suffered a "medical emergency" after getting off a private jet at a hangar away from the main terminal at Midway Airport.

Langford said the male was in "cardiac arrest" before he was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Juice WRLD, born Jarad Higgins, made a name for himself in 2018 with the release of his SoundCloud EP, Goodbye & Good Riddance. The EP featured his surprise hit single "Lucid Dreams".

The moody single, told from the standpoint of a heartbroken lad whose girlfriend left him, prompted Interscope Records to offer the 20-year-old budding rap star a $3 million recording contract.

The music video for "Lucid Dreams" was dark and morbid.

    You left me falling and landing inside my grave
    I know that you want me dead
    I take prescriptions to make me feel A-OK
    I know it's all in my head

With the popularity of his follow-up single "All Girls Are the Same,", Higgins left Chicago's Southside behind him and settled into a leased Beverly Hills mansion, complete with a recording studio and enough space for his newfound friends.

"I went from sitting on the couch in my mom's house watching TV to being in Los Angeles around all these big people, being able to record any time I want," he told Billboard magazine.

Higgins was raised by his single mother in Chicago. He described his absentee father as "in and out" of his life while growing up.

He frequently praised his single mother for influencing his musical taste and not letting him listen to rap. "[My mother] is a very religious person who loves gospel music," he explained in an interview with The Gulf Times. "She stopped me listening to rap. I'd hear some rap thanks to my cousins but not much. I was primarily into pop and rock which my mother considered as more acceptable."

Higgins's mixtape WRLD on Drugs, a collaborative effort with rapper Future, peaked at Number 2 on the album charts.

In most of his songs he rapped about his dependency on lean, aka purple drank and sizzurp. Lean is a concoction of codeine cough syrup and hard candy mixed in a soda beverage.

On his single "Candles," off his EP Goodbye & Good Riddance, Higgins rapped "Don't pray for me/ Just give me drugs."

In an interview with Billboard magazine in March, Higgins, pictured left, suggested his struggles with drug addiction may be due to his absentee father, who passed away in June.

"I didn't have a man giving me no type of guidance. My father wasn't in my life like that," he said. "So listening to this grown-ass man rap about lean, I'm like, 'Well, that sounds really appealing.'"

Higgins embraced his status as a role model to his young fans:

"I look at it like this - you can't change a motherfucker's life by pointing and judging. It takes a motherfucker that has been through the same shit to say, 'I understand how it feels. We're going to get through this together.'"
