Did Rapper PnB ROCK Ignore The Red Flags of Imminent Danger?

“I never got robbed in my life” – PnB Rock

Rapper PNB Rock

DJ Akademiks talked to PnB Rock about violence in LA and how the rapper diffused a hostile situation. LA is synonymous with the murders of Biggie and Tupac, said DJ Akademiks. The host went on to say that LA is a little “spooky.” PnB Rock said the crime life in Los Angeles is much different than where he is from.

To add Insult to Injury Reportedly there was Trouble with Family of PnB ROCK Getting His Body Released to Send Back to Philadelphia

The body of PnB Rock is reportedly headed home. But it appears the process was far from easy.

Days after the rapper was shot and killed in Los Angeles, his brother took to Instagram to address some of the conflict between the family and the medical examiner.

“We been having trouble getting my brother back to Philadelphia,” PnB Meen wrote on Instagram. “The state of Los Angeles claiming they have some type of law, going against our as Muslims. Now I have no clue when his Janazah. It’s not right, yo. It’s goin on a week. Prayers up. I got you bro an ya daughters.”

Janazah is a Muslim funeral ritual in which an individual is typically buried within 24 hours of their death. Sources told TMZ the rapper’s mother flew from Philadelphia to LA as soon as soon she received word about PnB Rock’s shooting. After identifying her son as the victim, the mother demanded the medical examiner to immediately release the body for religious purposes. The examiner reportedly refused, saying they couldn’t release the body at the time because it was part of a homicide investigation. Sources say the back-and-forth became so tense that police were called to the coroner’s office to de-escalate the situation.

“Speak into existence the life you dreamed about having”

Courtney Ward Thompkins
Courtney Ward-Thompkins

Producer, writer and content creator of scripted and unscripted television Courtney Ward-Thompkins is not afraid to live her dreams out loud. After interning with LaFace records she discovered her love for working in the entertainment industry. It’s not uncommon for someone who started in the music industry to navigate their way into the world of film and television.

Once Thompkins paved her way in the film industry through obtaining several titles such as production secretary, production manager , production coordinator, travel coordinator, doing overnights, and the list goes on. She was able to learn the in’s and outs of the industry; the do’s and what not to do and felt the urgency to share her knowledge with others. She believed all the information she obtained over the years would be extremely beneficial to newcomers just starting out to help them better navigate their way through the industry. This brings us to the creation of Courtney Ward’s Seminar. Check out her interview with Jonell Whitt from Rolling Out.

Camping, Glamping and Jammin Festival returns on 8/27 with the Slutty Vegan Truck

Tickets begin at $89 per vehicle up to 5 occupants plus taxes and fees; that’s less than $20 per person.

Camping , Glamping & Jammin Overnight Festival Returns to the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers on August 27th With Slutty Vegan Food Truck

“During the pandemic I went to a drive-in movie theater that played old movies and films that most people weren’t familiar with. However, the drive-in was full to capacity and the cars kept coming. People were partying around their cars and not really paying attention to the movies. I immediately thought if this was a concert instead of these movies it would be off the chain,” – Mark Skeete

Glam Out Your Tent Any Way You Like!

Camping , Glamping, & Jammin Atlanta’s only overnight music festival is an idea that was brought to fruition when event founder Mark Skeete came to the realization that he was already surrounded by a community of people who enjoy partying under the stars all night long. All he needed to do was execute the process to get things rolling.

“During the pandemic I went to a drive-in movie theater that played old movies and films that most people weren’t familiar with. However, the drive-in was full to capacity and the cars kept coming. People were partying around their cars and not really paying attention to the movies. I immediately thought if this was a concert instead of these movies it would be off the chain,” exclaims Mark Skeete.

It was at that very moment Skeete realized that he could capitalize on the drive-in movie audience but instead, he could offer a new concept and came up with the overnight drive-in festival, “camping, glamping & jammin.” This would be a drive-in concert, stand-up comedy show, silent after party and more. It would take place from sundown to sunrise, 6pm until 6am. DATDRIVEIN was created and “camping, glamping & jammin” became the staple event.

This event aims to introduce the culture to a new experience. It’s an alternative to the club that allows for a group of attendees to congregate outdoors within the confines of their own space, a campsite, tent, car or RV. Attendees can catch a concert, comedy show, dance, sing, laugh, eat, sleep, wake up and party some more. Not intended to be the boy’s scouts camp of yesterday, some attendees’ tents are decorated with blow up couches, living rooms and queen size mattresses, and bedrooms. It’s better than some folks’ homes . You can glam your tent out anyway you like for a chance to win a Free Slutty Vegan meal at ‘Camping Glamping & Jammin’. That’s right! This year the crew with the best tricked out tent receives a free Slutty Vegan Meal package for up to 5 people.

On August 27th ‘Camping Glamping & Jammin’ will take place at the Georgia International Horse Park from 6pm-6am. 5 DJ’S, 5 COMEDIANS, LIVE BAND, SURPRISE Artists Tribute to The YO! MTV RAP & VIDEO SOUL ERA and more. The Slutty Vegan Food Truck is Rolling in to ‘Camping Glamping & Jammin’ from 7pm til 12am. Tickets are available for sale at http://www.datdrivein.com.

Tickets begin at $89 per vehicle up to 5 occupants plus taxes and fees; that’s less than $20 per person.

Tents Fit Full & Queen Size Bed, Sofa, Breakfast or Coffee Table,

Security Will Be On Site! It’s going to be an awesome time!

Hefe Wine Drops Documentary ‘When Thugs Fly’ on Tubi March 4th

Houston native Hefe Wine released the documentary ‘When Thugs Fly’ on Friday March 4, 2022 on Tubi . The documentary is a memoir chronicling the life of Hefe Wine aka Wine-O aka Nuwine aka WINE, from his young teenage years leaving home at 14 years of age; up until he hit a level of success in the rap game on through his adult hood.

‘When Thugs Fly’, the documentary has several teachable moments, especially for young black men trying to navigate their way through life. Times are truly different today than they were for African Americans in the days of Martin Luther King Jr. and civil rights leaders in his day. But what you will see is how Hefe Wine (like other young black men) will face certain obstacles almost every black man will encounter in his lifetime. Will he experience consequences for his choices?

At the end of the day no matter what shade of brown or black your skin is. If you are an African American in America you will be judged. Parents make sure your young African American boys and girls have knowledge about their culture and understand their history. They must be prepared and understand they have choices and options.

Restaurateur Ebony Austin had an amazing 2021 despite worldwide pandemic

(l-r)(Former Mayoral Candidate Antonio Brown, Mayor Joy B Day, Jr. Restaurateur ,Owner Ebony Austin, Actress Naturi Naughton, City of Jonesboro Manager Ricky L Clark

Owner of Nouveau Bar & Grill Ebony Austin has had an amazing 2021. Despite national pandemic conditions. In a city where social justice was top of the list, riots and rallies month after month, waterboys attacking the public, a wing shortage and mask mandates were mask on then mask off; Austin refused to let anything stand in her way.

From giving back consistently Ebony truly believed in the quote “If you do good to others God will definitely do his part to make sure you prosper.” (The elaborate version of karma)

Let’s go down Memory Lane and see how it started and where we are now. In January 2021 Ebony Austin was a part of her first docs-series where she got to tell her story in, “Making of a Mogul” an independent film project. Tanya Sam former (Real Housewives of Atlanta castmate was Host). February there was Valentine’s Day for couples at Nouveau with an entire Valentine Day menu. In March Ebony was offered a board member position with the BIRTHRIGHT organization. Also it was on the night of February 22, 2021 Austin agreed to a mentorship program and to employ the kids of the Birthright organization and participate in Motivation Monday every Monday night going forward.

In March the Nouveau Owner had the pleasure of welcoming the Baddest Chick “Rapper Trina” to experience the Mimosa Jam Sunday Brunch on the Balcony. There was even a surprise visit from Rapper Flo Rida. That Sunday was definitely one for the history books. Later that month she celebrated her first national feature in Sheen Magazine’s April issue featuring Influencer/reality star Pretty V on the cover. The the month ended with a fundraiser to help several families who were victims of “child sex trafficking” . The event was very emotional as families told their experiences. Ebony donated her event for 4 hours so families could gather and gain support from each other while the organization went live with media to raise funds.

April Showers not only brought in May flowers but also brought in Reality Star from OWN TV Martell Holt who absolutely loved the Nouveau experience and even had the viewing party for season 2 at the establishment. The month of April was the bittersweet end of the ad campaign Nouveau rain for 3 issues of the “Buckhead Life Magazine.”

Clearly Nouveau had a stellar first quarter of 2021 coming off of a terrible year in 2020 of lockdowns and longtime business owners having to shut their doors for good. The springtime zipped by and by summer Nouveau’s patio was packed and the upstairs balcony patio dining was booked and busy. Weekends turned into 2-hour waits and lines wrapped around the corner. Nouveau was now the official lunch hot spot.

Ebony was a regular Monday morning face on the (23 year old ) infamous Rolling Out A.M. show for several weeks discussing what’s new on her menu, worldwide events and local news. The IGNITE RESOURCE CENTER of College Park held a Charity Gala for the BIRTHRIGHT TEEN AGILE Leadership Program. Then the Mayor of Jonesboro declared July 25th Ebony Austin Day! It was also the day the 2nd Nouveau location was birthed! How beautiful to see this Chicago native live out her dreams and get her flowers while she is alive and has many years to go.

At the Grand Opening Ebony Austin presented one of the High School Bands in Clayton County with a check for $5000.00. In the month of November for Thanksgiving, Nouveau Jonesboro gifted over 600 turkeys and full meal packages to families in the community. Actors Naturi Naughton and Marlo Hampton were on deck to help along with several volunteers.

To top the ending of 2021 on a very high note the owner Ebony Austin (female African American Business Owner ) was announced and presented with an award from the city of College Park as “Business Person of the Year” for all her Charitable Contributions to the community and running her business with style and grace. A true asset to the community.

This award from the City of College Park for “Businessperson of the Year” is where all the efforts of 2021 led to

Ebony blessed the children of the community with over 80,000 worth of toys. From Huffy Bikes, flatscreen vizio televisions, chromebooks, toys, games, trampolines, video games and everything a child could dream of to make their Christmas Day the best day ever. There were 50 Christmas full dinners given away as well as six $1000.00 scholarships to students in college and preparing to go to college. Truly Ebony Austin and Nouveau Bar & Grill Restaurants are a Class Act addition to the community.

Actors Thomas Q Jones and Michael Anthony in TV ONE Original Movie “One Day at Christmas”

After being stuck in a train station on Christmas Eve, two strangers actors (Thomas Q Jones) and (Asia’h Epperson) meet in a bar, only to lose contact a few hours later. They reconnect after a series of unexpected events, but on much more complicated terms.

Thomas Q Jones was feeling ambushed into what appeared to be “the perfect marriage”. However while his heart was stuck on this lady he met at a bar (Asiah’h Epperson), she was busy in a relationship she settled for with (Michael Anthony) after finding out her prince charming had a whole fiancé.

Will the two find their way back to each other? You will have to tune in to TV ONE on Sunday December 12th at 8pm Eastern.

nouveau Restaurant Owner Opens 2nd Location in Jonesboro Georgia

Owner Ebony Austin receives Proclamation from the Mayor of Jonesboro declaring July 25th Official “Ebony Austin Day” for all her work in the community through philanthropy.

City Manager Ricky L Clark, Mayor Joy B Day, Owner Ebony Austin

The City of Jonesboro will truly be changed forever after the Grand Opening of Nouveau @ Broad Street in Jonesboro, GA. The opening of this restaurant is part of the ‘Broad Street Project’ to bring Black businesses back to downtown Jonesboro. On July 25th we entered the building of the new restaurant (after we made a pit stop at the Stella Rosa Wine truck for samples of their new flavors); but once we were checked in we couldn’t help but notice that on the wall was a beautiful media mural that captured the moments from the beginning of Owner Ebony Austin’s journey from Chicago to the historical city of College Park on Main street where she birthed her first official Nouveau Bar & Grill location. We spotted “The Producer’s Channel TV’ on the wall and we were totally not only caught off guard but honored that our work of recognizing amazing restaurants had not gone unnoticed. We were truly grateful and honored.

The VIP escort/bodyguard ushered us into the VIP room where we were served Grey Goose Essence cocktails (Strawberry & Lemonade), and delicious cupcakes. The location used to be a firehouse but the way they transformed the building was truly amazing. Looking out the glassdoors there was a beautiful stage & a lawn filled with tables and people who were so excited to be in this black owned venue which truly represented Black Excellence.

The show started with an amazing performance by the Jonesboro High School Band. Afterwards the Owner of Nouveau, a beautiful Black female business woman Ebony Austin presented the Jonesboro High School Band leader with a check for the band for $5000.00. The team was so elated. They also had a special announcement: They were invited to perform at the White House for 4th of July celebration in 2022.

After the Mayor totally shocked everyone reading the Proclamation from the City of Jonesboro to Ebony Austin and stating that July 25th will Officially be ‘Ebony Austin Day’ in the city of Jonesboro. There wasn’t a dry eye on the stage or in the audience as everyone was truly surprised of the growth of this Southside of Chicago native business woman. Congratulations Ebony!

Now it was time for the real show to begin: BET’s Encore cast member Nivea opened up the show and she looked amazing! There was a little mic trouble but she just kept right on singing. Next up was the singer RL, formerly of the group NEXT. RL took us right down memory lane with songs we love love to sing. From hits he wrote ending with “WIFEY”. Then we learned a fun fact that ‘Lil Mo’ was actually singing background.

The night ended with an amazing performance by ‘ Lil Mo’. I almost forgot Lil Mo was a triple threat! She’s not only an amazing singer and rapper, Lil Mo is an all around entertainer/radio host with personality bursting through the ceiling. After her dynamic performance Yung Joc ‘the MC’ of the night, kindly took the mic back and called Ms. Shyneka to the stage. Joc challenged Ms Shyneka to a friendly karaoke contest & I think Joc might have won that round esp since Ms Shyneka was lipsynching . Next they found someone in the audience who was having relationship issues to prove “The Love Doc Joc” was real with his advice.

Before we end this article, we can’t forget to mention the food was absolutely amazing! It was being passed out all night long. There was the Spinach Dip, Chicken & Waffles, Shrimp, Salmon, Crab meat & Grits, and Buffalo Shrimp w Blue Cheese were the samples the guests got to choose from. Rave reviews were coming from people all around as the table talk banter continued all night long.

Everyone thought that Volvo Cars of Marietta had their XC60 Black 2021 vehicle out on the side of the stage as a give away prize. I soon realized it was one of the branded sponsors for the event. Oh what an amazing night. Please check out the photos in the gallery.
