I feel so bad for Michael Vick. I really do….but I feel obligated to tell y’all what’s going on. This week, Mike not only put his Atlanta home on the market, he has now purchased a condo in Miami, Florida.
You may be scratching your head and asking….”so….why would he buy a home in Florida when he can’t even leave Virginia??” Well…my friends….here’s the deal.
Just like O.J., Mike has been schooled!….it is rumored that Mike is headed towards bankruptcy and since Florida’s laws allow somewhat of a safehaven for propery owners (remember how O.J. Simpson fled to Florida from California to avoid paying anything on the judgment in the Goldman’s civil lawsuit?), Mike appears to be purchasing property there so that he can retain some of his wealth…..Anywhoo, Mike’s little brother, Marcus Vick (who has an impressive criminal past of his own) is currently keeping the pad warm. They may end up roomates, being that Marcus was also released from his team (the Miami Dolphins) in May of this year. (Source)
Michael & Marcus Vick
Looks like Cliff will be home for the holidays after all!! The jugde in the T.I. aka Clifford Harris case just ruled that T.I. can be released on a $3.3 million dollar bond.
The conditions of Harris’ release from jail are that he cannot leave his house except for medical emergencies or for court appearances, he is allowed three visitors at a time after they have been subjected to a criminals background check and he can not have direct or indirect contact with any witnesses or informants in the case against him. Harris cannot have any safes in his house or car; law enforcement officers found a biometric safe in his house when they searched it on Oct. 13, the same day he was arrested.

On how the streets have changed:
Is there a character in American Gangster you would parallel to your days in the trap? I can’t even compare myself back in that day simply
Here’s the latest mug shot for Kid Rock. Rock a/k/a “Pamela Anderson’s Ex”, a/k/a “Kid Pebble”, a/k/a “Robert James Ritchie” was arrested in the “A” this weekend for fighting at an Atlanta area Waffle House.
Police said Ritchie was finishing up a post-show meal at a Waffle House on Buford Highway about 5:15 a.m. Sunday when a customer recognized a woman in his entourage and began exchanging words with her.
Ritchie joined in the altercation, which soon escalated into a physical fight between the rocker and the man, Harlen DeJon Akins, 39.
Soon, five other men in his entourage — including the guitarist and the bass player in his band, Twisted Brown Trucker — jumped into the fray, and the fight spilled from inside the restaurant into the parking lot, said police spokeswoman Mekka Parish.
When the brawl ended, Ritchie and his group got into their tour bus and left the scene. An officer pulled the bus over at Buford Highway and Lenox Road, and all five men were booked into jail on the misdemeanor battery charge. (Source)
See…..WHITE folks get arrested too…
I reported eariler that T.I. was a no-show at the BET awards that was filming in Atlanta this weekend. The information I received was that his home was being searched by the feds. Apparently they found weapons and silencers in his home….
Harris, 27, was charged with two felonies — possession of three unregistered machine guns and two silencers, and possession of firearms by a convicted felon. The arrest was made in the parking lot of a downtown shopping center, which a witness identified as the Walgreens drug store at the corner of North and Piedmont avenues.
Harris was arrested after allegedly trying to purchase the guns from a “cooperating witness” with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. According to federal officials, the witness had been cooperating with authorities since Wednesday, when he was arrested on charges of trying to purchase guns from a federal agent. The witness has been working as Harris’ bodyguard since July, authorities said. (Source)
I just received a text that T.I.’s home is currently being searched by the feds. A few moments later, I found that the Atlanta Journal is reporting that T.I. was arrested this afternoon at 2:30 coming out of Walgreens Drug Store in Downtown Atlanta. Sources have confirmed that T.I. is a no show at the BET awards show which is currently being taped. I sincerely hope that Tip hasn’t slipped up again and I’m keeping him in my prayers. We definately don’t need any more negativity involving hip-hop. FREE T.I. ~ ASAP….ASAP! (Source)
