Florida Death Row Inmate Confesses to O. J. Simpson Murders The serial killer told his family that he did it

A new documentary which airs November 21 on Investigation Discovery claims Florida death row inmate Glen Rogers killed O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994.

In the documentary “My Brother the Serial Killer,” Clay Rogers, Glen Rogers’ brother, gives an interview to filmmakers in which he says, “I’m absolutely certain that my brother killed Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman.”

Glen Rogers was working as a house painter in Los Angeles at the time of the murders, according to the documentary. A few weeks before Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were killed, Rogers told his brother and sister he was hanging around with Brown and said she was rich and he was going to “take her down.”Image

The mother of rapper “Andre 3000” has died, according to his publicist.

There are unconfirmed reports that Sharon Benjamin-Hodo was found dead in her metro-Atlanta home.

She was the founder of the starlight camp for underprivileged children, which she ran out of her husband’s church,

The family asked for continued support of the starlight camp in lieu of flowers. Andre 3000’s mother died in her sleep early Tuesday at her Georgia home, a representative for the rapper at the firm Sunshine Sachs said Wednesday. Sharon Benjamin-Hodo was 58.

She died in Rex, Ga. No other details were provided.

Benjamin-Hodo was the founder of The Starlight Camp, a program that supports underprivileged children. It is part of the New Morning Light Missionary Baptist Church in Conley, Ga. She is survived by her husband, Robert Hodo, who is the church’s pastor.

Rapper Chief Keef clocked at 110 mph on Edens

Rapper Keith F. Cozart, better known as Chief Keef, was arrested when he blew past police going 110 mph on the Edens Expressway, Northfield officials said.

Monday’s arrest comes a week after Cozart was charged with disorderly conduct after Georgia police say hotel security smelled marijuana smoke coming from his room.

Cozart, 17, was behind the wheel of a 2011 BMW X6 M, heading north about 3:45 a.m. at Winnetka Road, when a Northfield police officer spotted him, said Northfield Deputy Chief Claude Casaletto.

“He was clocked at 110 in a 55 mph zone,” Casaletto said. “The officers typically sit off on the shoulder and wait for speeders. He came up as a high number.”

The officer pulled over Cozart and found three other men in the car with him. He was taken into custody, and one of the passengers was allowed to drive the BMW away. Casaletto said.

Cozart was brought to a police station and was cited for going 110 in a 55 mph zone and having too many passengers, the deputy chief said. Cozart has a driver’s permit which only allows one passenger with him.

The police report listed Cozart’s address as in the 600 block of Pfingsten Road in nearby Northbrook. He is scheduled to appear in courtroom 101 at the Skokie Courthouse at 10:30 a.m. on June 17, said Casaletto.

Last week Monday, Cozart was arrested at the LeMeridan Hotel at 111 Perimeter Center West in Dunwoody, north of Atlanta, according to a spokesman for the Dunwoody Police Department.

Hotel security alerted police shortly before 3 p.m. about illegal drug activity at the hotel. The security told police they had noticed a smell of marijuana coming from the room. Officers arrived and spoke with Cozart, then arrested him for disorderly conduct for smoking marijuana, according to a police report.

When told of Cozart’s other run-ins with the law, Casaletto said of Monday’s arrest: “It’s negative publicity as far as we’re concerned.”

Vallejo rapper sentenced for human trafficking in Contra Costa County and throughout Bay Area

A 38-year-old Vallejo rapper was sentenced Friday to five years and eight months in state prison for the sex trafficking of women he kept in prostitution against their will.

Joel Williams, who released an album under the monikerImage through the notorious Thizz Nation label in April, was convicted by a jury in April of four felonies — human trafficking, pimping, pandering and drug furnishing and transportation — and misdemeanor battery. He was sentenced by Judge Mary Ann O’Malley.

“There were three woman in this guy’s stable that he manipulated through sex, emotional control, physical violence and drugs,” deputy district attorney Chad Mahalich said. “The physical effects were seen through photos, but the emotional and mental effects will be lifelong for everyone involved.

“All these girls came from a troubled background, and he kicked them down and made them feel worthless,” Mahalich said.

Concord police arrested Williams on the human trafficking charges in 2012 after he beat one of the victims in a motel room, and she escaped. The woman told police that Williams had been forcing her to prostitute herself all over the Bay Area.

Williams last released a CD for Thizz Nation in 2008. The label evolved from but is unaffiliated with the label managing the music made by revered Vallejo rapper Mac Dre before he was shot and killed in Kansas City, Mo., in 2004.

The Thizz Nation CEO and many of its rappers were indicted


in federal court in April 2012 as part of a massive drug-trafficking case. Williams was interviewed by investigators but not charged in that case.

Warrant for Rapper Tim Dog, Despite Death Reports

tim

Lack of a death certificate or of a burial site and sparse obituary information led to talk in hip-hop circles that rapper Tim Dog, who owes thousands of dollars to women he was convicted of swindling, faked his own death in February.

The 46-year-old, whose real name is Timothy Blair, is best known for a 1990s song “F— Compton” that criticized West Coast rappers.

Numerous media organizations have reported or referred to his death from diabetes complications, many citing hip-hop magazine, The Source. The story has since disappeared from its website and efforts to reach editors there weren’t immediately successful.

One of the swindling victims from Mississippi told prosecutors that restitution payments to her stopped coming in around the same time Blair was reported dead, said Steven Jubera, the Desoto County prosecutor handling the case. He has since found no death records or any proof of where or how Blair died, so he sought an arrest warrant Tuesday, alleging the rapper hasn’t paid restitution from the 2011 grand larceny conviction. A judge approved it.

“I have no proof that he’s dead, so I have to presume that he’s alive,” Jubera said.

Blair was sentenced in August 2011 to 14 days in jail and five years on probation for swindling $32,000 from a woman who met him on an online dating site four years earlier. He was ordered to pay about $19,000 in restitution.

Blair is from New York, but had been living in Atlanta. The Fulton County medical examiner’s office there said there was no record of his death.

Those at the front desk of the high rise listed as his last address said they didn’t know of anyone by the name Timothy Blair living there. An email to his daughter wasn’t immediately returned.

Attorney Stan Little, listed in court records as Blair’s attorney in the larceny case, did not immediately respond to a phone message left at his office Thursday.

In a story earlier this month about rappers dying in their 40s from various ailments, The Associated Press reported Blair’s death, but did not say when he died or give a cause. Neither did many other media reports.

The Mississippi woman who accused Blair of scamming her was featured last year on “Dateline NBC,” along with other women he had persuaded to give him money.

Esther Pilgrim, of Southaven, Miss., told the program she opened credit cards to get money to invest in Tim Dog albums that Blair said he was producing.

After meeting online, the two spent time together in person at Blair’s home in Atlanta. In the Dateline program, Blair said Pilgrim wrecked the record deal and cost him hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Eminem publisher sues Facebook, says tech giant appropriated rapper’s song

Eminem’s song publisher is suing Facebook and its ad agency, claiming they infringed the Detroit rapper’s copyright.

In the 12-page complaint, filed Monday evening in Detroit federal court, Ferndale-based Eight Mile Style contends that a Facebook ad that was broadcast online April 4 copied music from Eminem’s 2000 song “Under the Influence.”

The 30-second ad, dubbed “Airplane,” was featured in a webcast by Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg to announce Facebook Home, an interface for Android phones. Some viewers at the time noted a similarity between the ad’s music and Eminem’s song.

Eight Mile Style oversees rights and licensing for Eminem’s song catalog.

The complaint claims the ad agency, Wieden+Kennedy of Portland, Ore., copied Eminem’s music “in an effort to curry favor with Facebook by catering to Zuckerberg’s personal likes and interests, and/or to invoke the same irreverent theme” of the rapper’s song.

A Facebook spokesperson declined to comment on the suit. The Free Press has contacted an attorney for Wieden+Kennedy seeking comment.

A version of the commercial featuring new music was posted to YouTube several days later. That version has also since aired on television.

The lawsuit contends the alteration “was an admission that Facebook knew it had infringed” on the Eminem song.

This isn’t the first time Eight Mile Style has taken on a tech giant: Apple Inc. reached an out-of-court settlement with the publisher in 2005 after using Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” in an iPod commercial without permission.

Audi agreed to a settlement in 2011 after using a “Lose Yourself” sound-alike song in a European promotional clip.

The Facebook Home media event took place in early April — the same week that web sleuths made headlines by purportedly turning up the old Angelfire homepage of a teenage Zuckerberg.

That site includes an “About Me” page that cites Eminem’s best-known persona: “Hi, my name is … Slim Shady. No, really, my name is Slim Shady. Just kidding, my name is Mark.”

Further twisting the plot: Wieden+Kennedy was the firm behind Eminem’s famed Super Bowl spot with Chrysler in 2011 — which featured an authorized version of “Lose Yourself.”

Eight Mile Style had directly complained to the ad agency in April about the Facebook ad music. In an April 29 response obtained by the Free Press, a Wieden+Kennedy attorney argued that Eight Mile Style had no grounds to assert copyright, saying the Eminem song passage had itself been copied from Michael Jackson’s 1991 song “Give In to Me.”

In the letter, attorney Guy Cohen attributed the writing and production of “Under the Influence” to periodic Eminem collaborator Dr. Dre, who Cohen contended “has a long, well-documented history of copyright infringement.”

“Under the Influence” was in fact cowritten by D12 and produced by the Bass Brothers, the Detroit duo who handled much of the rapper’s work at the time.

“I find it so arrogant, after they did so well with the Chrysler-Eminem campaign, that they would say Dr. Dre stole this from Michael Jackson,” said Eight Mile Style head Joel Martin.

Even setting aside any Michael Jackson issue, Cohen wrote, the music in the original Facebook spot “simply is not substantially similar” to the Eminem song.

Moreover, he wrote, Wieden+Kennedy has “taken steps to ensure that the earlier version of (the Facebook ad) is no longer publicly available.”

Famous Vodka, making a name for itself

ImageA novel idea, an delightful decanter, another excellent vodka springs from an unexpected source.  With a soul bred in Poland, harvested in Idaho, and cultivated in Austin, Texas, the live music capital of the world, Famous Vodka is a legendary composition, bottle and contents alike.

Handcrafted in small batches, Famous joins the ranks of Ultimat and Pasternak; excellent, traditionally inspired, potato-distilled vodkas.  Touted as “a superior vodka that hits all the right notes,” Famous’ musically inclined creators have hit with a smooth and delicious product, too rarely associated with American vodkas.

Outstanding in its original form and flavor, Famous also offers Famous Rose, an unprecedented, and divinely refreshing infusion of rose water. Light and thrilling, Famous Rose is a subtle spirit with none of the perfume angst that the name might inspire.

Famous pours well into any cocktail, yet possesses a smoothness necessary for a stand-alone martini.  True to the their lyrical nature, Famous’ creators sing the praises of their own Famous Anthem:

Drink it neat, or start a mix.  This potato vodka is characteristically luxurious and creamy while remaining crisp and clean.  It is pleasurable to the palate with minimal burn.  Its composition is pure while its tones need no other accompaniment.  Throw in just a few rocks and you are ready to roll.
Famous Rose is a delicious re-mix of the original hit..a lusty cameo from a new element.

Famous Vodka is making its popularity felt in the Southwest.  Distribution is expanding, but you needn’t wait to get it in your area.  Any BevMo, or specialty liquor store can, and will order a bottle for you.  Ask for this service often enough, and they might start carrying it.

Famous vodka supports local music ,local radio,and overall good times.

Candice Glover Wins 12th Season of ‘American Idol’

 

 

 

 

The third time’s the charm for Candice Glover on “American Idol.”

 

The booming 23-year-old R&B vocalist from St. Helena Island, S.C., won the Fox singing competition after auditioning a trio of times and making it to the finals this year. Glover looked stunned when “Idol” host Ryan Seacrest announced she bested soulful 22-year-old country singer Kree Harrison from Woodville, Texas.

 

Glover said backstage after winning she learned to “have fun, live in the moment and be confident.”

 

“Because in previous years I wasn’t, so that’s definitely the key if you want to audition for the show or have a career,” she said.

 

After her crowning, an emotional Glover sobbed her way through her new single “I Am Beautiful.”

 

Glover’s win marks the first time a female and a nonwhite singer has won the competition since Jordin Sparks dominated the sixth season in 2007. The previous five winners — Phillip Phillips, Scotty McCreery, Lee DeWyze, Kris Allen and David Cook — were all Caucasian guitar players, known to “Idol” fans as WGWGs, or white guys with guitars.

 

The lack of a female champion for the past five years was mocked in a finale bit featuring the female finalists, in cahoots with Sparks, jokingly sabotaging this season’s five male contestants.

 

“The good news is ‘Idol’ leftovers have been doing really well on ‘The Voice,'” Sparks teased.

Besides the coronation of Glover, Thursday’s finale also served as a farewell for Randy Jackson, the show’s last remaining original judge who announced last week that he’s leaving “Idol” to focus on his record label and other business opportunities. Jackson served as a judge on all 12 seasons of “Idol.” He first appeared on the panel alongside Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul when the competition debuted in 2002, becoming famous for his easygoing “yo, dawg” rapport with contestants.

 

“I love everybody that walked on this show,” Jackson said. He added, “Hopefully, I touched their lives a little bit. They certainly touched mine.”

 

Grammy- and Oscar-winning former “Idol” finalist Jennifer Hudson returned for Thursday’s finale to duet with Glover on Natalie Cole’s “Inseparable.”

 

“I look up to her and, honestly, she is so successful after this show, and I really admire her,” said Glover backstage. “I finally got a chance to not only meet her but sing with her.”

 

Hudson was among the guest stars who helped fill out the two-hour finale show, including Psy, Frankie Valli, Emeli Sande, Jessie J, Aretha Franklin and former “Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez. Current “Idol” judges Keith Urban and Mariah Carey — along with Jackson on bass — also performed.

 

Jackson previously declared Wednesday’s three-song showdown a dead heat between Harrison and Glover, who have both once been among the show’s low vote-getters during the finals.

 

“The title is freaking amazing, and I’m so proud of Candice, but for me, I’m so thankful I could even stand next to her on the finale,” said Harrison, who now lives in Nashville, Tenn.

 

Last year’s finale between Phillips and budding pop diva Jessica Sanchez brought in 132 million votes. The vote totals for Thursday’s finale weren’t shared with viewers.
