–If you’re of the reality show era when Diddy made the members of Da Band walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn to retrieve some Juniors Cheesecake, then you should be familiar with Chopper, the group’s rap star from Louisiana. He hasn’t been in the limelight much since filming the popular 2000’s reality show, Making the Band,  but he’s making today headlines for sex trafficking allegations.

TMZ reports that the 35-year-old rapper was arrested earlier this month in Maryland and shipped off to Las Vegas where he will face sex trafficking charges. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, he allegedly sent an undercover cop Instagram messages “with an apparent offer to obtain money through prostitution.”

Part of authorities’ investigation was the use of Chopper’s Instagram posts that seemingly reference his trafficking operation. 

–The 2022 Super Bowl halftime show was certainly one to remember and now one lucky person will become the owner of the football used during the game, signed by the performers of the show.

According to Rolling Stone, the game ball signed by EminemDr. DreAnderson .PaakMary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar, will go up for auction for three days on May 12-14. 

Heritage Auctions will run the sale, and it’s expected to hit at least $1500. 

–Beef-prone rapper 6ix9nine posted a positive message to his Instagram over the weekend, announcing that he will try to give away at least $50,000 every week to someone in need. 

“I was going to spend 20,000 last night in the club but I didn’t get to do so but I spent it on something better,” he said while sharing a video of himself handing off a pile of cash to a family selling flowers on the side of a highway.
