You’ve seen the top, bottom and all sides of Atlanta. But Chilly Chills going to show you heart of it.

Chilly Chills says that he is approaching music with what is called the “boiling frog method.”

“People hear some of my songs and just get caught up in the beat,” he says. “It’s like the boiling frog method.  You can sit a frog in a pot of water, and start to boil it. At first it just feels like a jacuzzi. But after a while, it relaxes and falls asleep. After that it dies from the heat. People are going to get so caught up in the beat that when they finally do catch on to what I’m saying, it’s too late, I already have them.” 

If you couldn’t tell, Chilly Chills loves to use metaphors. It’s that way of thinking and how he applies it to his music that has made him one of the rising stars in Atlanta’s highly competitive rap scene. While he already has the blessings of some of the city’s OGs, he is out to guide people who are his age and younger. Whether that’s through music, donating money to local schools or being a spokesperson for the anti-tobacco Fresh Empire campaign.

“I’m gonna make a shift in the culture,” he says. “It’s gonna hit the fan. It’s gonna fee like when NASA blasts one of their rockets, but says that they didn’t do it.”

Who: Chilly Chills was born and raised in the Mechanicsville community of Atlanta. It’s the part of town that T.I.’s ATL movie was heavily centered around.

Credentials: Both Kanye West and Andre 3000 have gave him musical blessings. He has opened for J. Cole and performed at SXSW and A3C.

Fun Fact: Chilly Chills is actually a name and a phrase. His original nickname was just “Chilly,” but he tends to be chill most times, so “Chilly, chills.” He also attended both Alabama State University and the University of Alabama to study Communications.

Ride or die might be your everyday motto, but the NYPD is making sure you do so on legally registered motorbikes. On Tuesday the NYPD took to Facebook Live to crush a gang of illegal dirt bikes and ATVs it had seized from people who rode them on the streets, parks, and in the projects.

The video, which shows two bulldozers rolling over and crushing an array of colorful dirt bikes and ATVs, is meant to demonstrate to the ride and hide rebels who operate illegal street vehicles when police aren’t looking that the NYPD aren’t just going to take away your prized possession. They’re going to hurt your feelings afterwards too.

According to the NYPost, commissioner Bill Bratton is fed up with the use of illegal street rides and wants to send a message to anyone who thinks they can fly under his radar.

Reports New York Post:

“We want to send out a very strong message to the nitwits and knuckleheads who insist on operating these illegal vehicles on the streets, sidewalks, parks, and housing developments of the city of New York, creating extraordinary danger not only for themselves but more importantly for the public,” said Bratton after the crushing…

Bratton warned that the NYPD will continue to confiscate and “crush” the bikes, which he referred to as “a plague on the city.”

Chief of Patrol Carlos Gomez spoke of the danger of the vehicles, saying they “can be very intimidating.”

“If you’re driving down the public streets or highways and these groups of motorcycles pass by you it’s certainly intimidating and it projects a sense of recklessness, a sense of lawlessness in our city,” said Gomez.

While 679 of these vehicles have been confiscated this year alone the outlawed rides haven’t been linked to any deadly accidents (bright side?).

Watch the video yourself and sound off on whether or not this will make a difference in how dudes get around in the streets.

Columbia University student Nayla Kidd went missing earlier this month, sparking a flurry of worry among her family in Kentucky and the school staff in New York. Kidd has been found safely and has since dropped out of Columbia to begin a new life in Brooklyn.

As reported by the New York Daily News, the 19-year-old kid disappeared from the online grid over two weeks ago with her Facebook page and other means of contact being totally shut off. Kidd said she took her profile offline and suspended her phone account as she’s ready to leave Columbia and just live on her own in New York.

From the Daily News:

Nayla Kidd, 19, the Columbia University sophomore who changed her cell phone and bank account numbers, pulled down her Facebook page and vanished earlier this month, has been found safe and sound, police said Monday.

“Basically, she just wanted to get away from it all,” said a police source. “She rented a place in Brooklyn.”

“She didn’t want to be at school anymore.”

Sources said Kidd reopened her bank account using her new East Williamsburg address. She was reunited with her mom on Monday.

The hipsters got themselves another one. Drats. This is also where we mention Kidd was at Columbia on a full scholarship at the School of Engineering and Applied Science.

Master P and ex-wife Sonya Miller have been embroiled in a bitter series of legal ongoings since their split in 2013. The No Limit general suffered another financial blow when he was ordered by a judge to hand over $825,000 to his ex-wife, which counts towards back child and spousal support payments.

TMZ reports:

Master P will not be collecting his reality show payday … instead the entire lump sum of nearly a million bucks will go directly to his longtime estranged wife.

The judge in their ongoing war over child and spousal support ordered Master P to hand over $825,000 — his salary for Season 2 of “Master P’s Family Empire” — to Sonya Miller. According to docs, that amount will cover back child and spousal support payments.

The judge said the amount will also be used to secure future support.

Miller said that her ex-husband has been stingy with the family fortune, which TMZ says is valued around $200 million, down from $350 million in 2013. And because the hits don’t stop, Master P has to also pay his ex-wife’s lawyer $15,000.

The situation has caused a strain between the former couple’s children Romeo and Cymphonique and their mom after they both went public about Miller’s aims in going after their father’s finances.

When word got out that LeBron James signed a lifetime deal with Nike, we all knew it wasn’t for chump change. We’ve now gotten confirmation that the deal is worth a cool $1 billion, at minimum. 

GQ caught up with Maverick Carter, King James’ high school buddy and business partner. While playing coy at first, Carter confirmed that they hit the motherlode thanks to the Swoosh.

Says GQ:

So you just negotiated an unprecedented lifetime contract for LeBron with Nike. What’s your secret to being a great negotiator?
You have to go into the room understanding a couple things. You have to know what you want. You have to know how to clearly articulate those things. You have to know what’s important to the other side and what they want. Be able to articulate those things, too. And then you have to be willing to not take everything. If you go into the negotiation like, I’m gonna get every dollar, every piece of real estate—I’m just gonna take this guy’s fucking pants off—you may be able to do that once, maybe twice, but after that, people aren’t going to want to do business with you. When you’re negotiating something like the Nike deal, it’s gonna last a lifetime, literally. The minute this negotiation’s over, we’re gonna work with these people every day. So you don’t want to leave them with a bad feeling.

How much was the deal for?
I can’t say.

Come on, Mav! Can you ballpark it?
What are people saying?

Kanye said a billion. So a billion.
[Maverick smiles and points one finger skyward.]

Actually, but that’s just the baseline.

Holy sh*t.
Yeah. It’s a fantastic deal. Nike feels great about the deal. That’s the most important thing. As great as I feel, as great as LeBron feels—Nike feels fantastic about it. It’s the largest deal in the history of the company. Their hope is he makes even more. And our hope is that, too, obviously.

LeBron James still has plenty of shoes to sell.

Peep the full story over at GQ.

The world stood in horror after details that the terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapped well over 200 schoolgirls from the Chibok region in Nigeria in 2014. Details are still developing but the first of the 219 girls that were captured has been found in the African nation by civilians searching the area near where the kidnapping took place.

BBC News reports that Amina Ali Nkek was found suffering from some trauma and with child by a group of vigilantes who have banded together to find the missing girls. She was found by one of the armed civilians in Sambisa Forest in Borno State near the border with Cameroon.

BBC News writes:

Amina was reportedly identified by a civilian fighter who recognised her. The fighter belonged to the Civilian Joint Task Force (JTF), a vigilante group set up to help fight Boko Haram.

Hosea Abana Tsambido, the chairman of the Chibok community in the capital, Abuja, told the BBC that Amina was found by the vigilantes after venturing into the forest to search for firewood.

Sources told the BBC she came from the town of Mbalala, south of Chibok, from where 25 of the kidnapped girls came. A neighbour in Mbalala told the BBC that Amina was found with a baby.

According to additional reports from the AFP, the now 19-year-old was reunited with her mother on Tuesday. Her father died in the two years she was in captivity.

There has been a recent number of offensives launched by the Nigerian Army in Borno State in direct correlation with the kidnapping and stamping out Boko Haram’s harsh reign.

Michel’le is following in Whitney Houston, Aaliyah and Toni Braxton’s footsteps and bringing her story to the Lifetime channel.

Deadline reports:

The film details the life of the singer, who was discovered at a young age by N.W.A’s Eazy-E and became a platinum artist on Ruthless Records. Dr. Dre’s girlfriend for more than a decade and later married to Suge Knight, Michel’le was there for N.W.A’s wild ride, with all of its dramatic ups and down. Finally, after years of silence, she is ready to reveal her side of the story…Curtis Hamilton will portray Dr. Dre. Additionally, R. Marcos Taylor, who starred as music executive Knight in Straight Outta Compton, will reprise his role in The Michel’le Story.

The high-pitched singer has every right to have her story told. To be Dr. Dre’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child as well as Suge Knight‘s ex-wife, is was perplexing to see how she was completely left out of the story line in the blockbuster film Straight Outta Compton.

She has let her voice be heard [no pun intended] in a series of DJ Vlad interviews where she’s talked about her relationships with both Dr. Dre and Knight.

[embedded content]

In one clip she explained why she thinks she was not asked to be involved in the movie.

She says:

“I was told that I wasn’t in it, which I’m really happy about. That’s Ice Cube’s version of his life. Why would Dre put me in? I mean ’cause if they start from where they start from I was just a quiet girlfriend who got beat up and told to sit down and shut up.”

Michel’le will be portrayed by Rhyon Nicole Brown, best known for her role as Lizzie Sutton on ABC Family’s Lincoln Heights.
