OAKLAND iSH: Oscar Grant Hearing & New Kev Choice Song



It has been 10 months since the Oscar Grant killing, but today is a big day for Officer Mehserle and the murder charges that are being brought against him. At noon there was a press conference a lot of local leaders and community members attended and at 2pm there is a hearing to determine whether the case should be held in another county.


Mehserle's attorney claims that the former Bart officer cannot receive a fair trial in Alameda County due to the outrage many Oaklanders feel about the situation. The main reason that Mehserle's camp wants the trial moved is because they believe the racial divide in the community is too big, and the relationship between the police and the locals too strained. I agree that a lot of people already have their mind made up, but you're telling me you can't find anyone in Alameda County without an anti-police bias? I don't believe that.


My biggest opposition to the location change is that the murder happened in Oakland, why should they move it some where else? This murder impacted our people and our community, not Contra Costa or any other county. He should have to answer to a group of peers in the location where he fatally shot Mr. Grant.






Coinciding with this press conference and the potential venue change, Kev Choice has released a song called "Hopefully" that speaks directly to the Oscar Grant killing. I am glad to see that artists have not forgotten about the killing and the social problems that are going on in our city. After the killing on New Years Day, everybody and their mama wanted to release a tribute song, but as time passed, silence took over. Now with the trial quickly approaching, we must stand up together and let everyone know that we have not forgotten. Food for thought and a song for dessert.

Check out the brand new single from Snoop Dogg featuring The Dream, “Gangsta Luv,” produced by Tricky Stewart. The new track comes from Snoop’s tenth studio album, Malice N Wonderland, due out December 8th.

You can’t say that Snoop doesn’t slightly reinvent himself every time to keep himself in the game. This track still encompasses Snoop’s “rhythm and gangsta,” but still has that catchy hook from The Dream that the radio needs.

Shyne Remains In Custody Due To Immigration Status


It looks like Shyne’s homecoming is on hold for the moment.

The former Bad Boy rapper (born Jamal Barrow) was scheduled to be released from prison Tuesday (October 6) after serving more than nine years of a 10-year sentence in connection with the 2001 Club New York shooting involving Diddy and Jennifer Lopez.

But his release is now under review, as representatives for the rapper revealed to MTV News that the Brooklyn MC is being detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at an unspecified facility in Western New York State. Officials are determining whether or not to deport the rapper, who was born in Belize, a rep explained.

“Shyne is currently in federal custody while his future immigration status is determined,” the rep said in a message to MTV News. Shyne attorney Oscar Michelen emphasized to MTV News on Tuesday afternoon that Shyne has not been released, contrary to media reports.

In August, a lawyer for Shyne said the rapper was “90 percent of the way home” after a judge ruled on his post-release supervision. The rapper received two and a half years of post-release supervision (probation, essentially) stemming from his conviction on first-degree assault and a host of other lesser charges. At the time of his sentencing, an official with the Department of Correction confirmed to MTV News that Shyne would have to complete at least eight years and seven months of his prison sentence.

For years, though, Shyne’s release date has been the subject of much confusion. Michelen acknowledged the subject had become urban legend, as the rumors started yearly that his client would be released. Michelen told MTV News in August that he believed a clerical error led to the incorrect assumptions.

“I think [the basis for the rumor] was created by a computer,” he explained, “because the Department of Corrections has a Web site where you can do an inmate lookup. And if you have the information, it will show you that [Shyne's] earlier release date was originally April [of this year] and then June. And we don’t now how that was in there. But it showed that. And then what would happen is before a release date, [an inmate] would get produced before a parole board, and in the institution, there would be rumors that [Shyne] was up for parole. I guess inmates or guards would spread the rumor.”

At press time, the status of Shyne’s release from prison remained unclear.

NEW MUSIC: USHER - “PAPERS” + ALBUM NEWS


♫ Usher - Papers
ALTERNATE LINK
R&B crooner Usher just released his last album, Here I Stand last year but is already ready to put on his sixth studio album. The first to leak of the material is the much anticipated, “Papers,” written and produced by Sean Garrett and Zaytoven.
The new album, tentatively titled Raymond vs. Raymond (it was originally announced that the new album would be titled Monster), is set to release December 8th, via LaFace/Jive Records. On the album, Usher is collaborating with Jermaine Dupri, Ester Dean, Jay-Z, Anthony Hamilton, Pharrell Williams and Adam Levine, just to name a few.
Very much different from Usher’s last effort, he’s told People Mag that the forthcoming album will be “racy, risky and edgy and sometimes about personal experiences.” And it’s no wonder, “Papers” was written months before Usher announced that he was filing for divorce.
