Where are these facilities today?  Places for young people to go to instead of the street corners.  A recreational center should be opened in urban areas to help get young people off the streets and to help fine-tune their talents and skills and reduce their tendencies towards violence….

There used to be several facilities throughout urban areas that kept our young people off the street corners. It was a place they could go to and get involved in something more positive and productive other than what we see from them today. It was a place they could go to and socialize peacefully. It kept them from the crossfire of the many gang shootings, the “in your face” drug sales and the temptations of wanting to be a part of such “traps” like these. It gave them something better to do with their time.  Recreational centers  kept them from the crazy and senseless SH$% they are now doing.

I say we put these facilities back in urban areas and restore some, if not all, of the unity, the peace, and the harmony that once flowed through these neighborhoods; because what we are seeing today and where it looks to be headed, is ridiculous..

GREEN MILE STAR– Michael Clarke Duncan, nominated for an Academy Award for his role in the 1999 film “The Green Mile,” died Monday morning at age 54, according to a representative for his family.
Duncan “suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered,” a written statement from Joy Fehily said.
Clarke died at a Los Angeles hospital where he had been since having the heart attack more than seven weeks ago.
According to TMZ, it was Duncan’s girlfriend Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, a reality star and former contestant on “The Apprentice,” who had acted quickly and provided lifesaving efforts when he had the heart attack.

Most recently he was on the TV series, “The Finder,” on the Fox network.
His co-star Mercedes Masohn tweeted: “Today is a sad day. Michael Clark Duncan passed away this morning. Known for his moving performance in The Green Mile. RIP MCD. You’ll b missed.”
Read other tributes to the late actor
According to Entertainment Weekly, the TV series was canceled in May.
A towering and hulking figure, the 6-foot-5-inch Duncan also was known for his deep voice.
A Chicago native, Duncan went to college at Alcorn State University in Mississippi with plans to major in communications, but he dropped out and moved home.
In his 20s, he worked digging ditches for Peoples Gas during the day and as a bouncer at night. He told CNN in 1999 that his coworkers at the gas company called him “Hollywood” because he’d often talk about becoming a movie star.
“I’d be digging a ditch and they’d say, ‘Hey, man, Bruce Willis wants to talk to you about a movie.’ And they’d just crack up laughing,” he said while doing press for ‘The Green Mile.’
“Those coworkers had no way of knowing how that joke would turn on them.”
In 1990, he decided to measure up his nickname and he moved to Los Angeles. He worked as a bodyguard then got a part in a commercial as a drill sergeant.
More roles followed — often ones that depended more on his 315-pound frame than his acting ability. He was a guard in “Back in Business,” a bouncer in “A Night at the Roxbury,” a bouncer for 2 Live Crew in “The Players Club,” and a bouncer at a bar in the Warren Beatty film “Bulworth.”
In 1998, he landed his first significant movie part, playing Bear in the film “Armageddon,” where a crew of drillers from an oil rig save the Earth from an asteroid.
“Armageddon” was the beginning of his friendship with Bruce Willis. They appeared in four films together. And it was Willis who called ‘The Green Mile’ director Frank Darabont to put in a good word for Duncan.
In the Oscar-nominated film, Duncan played John Coffey, the huge black man wrongly convicted in a Louisiana town for the rapes and murders of two white girls. Coffey has supernatural powers, though; his hands can heal, even bring back the dead.
A microcosm of faith, Coffey is a messenger of hope and lost hope who develops a relationship with Tom Hanks’ character, a guard named Paul Edgecomb.
Film critic Roger Ebert wrote that Duncan’s performance “is both acting and being.” Ebert tweeted Monday that Duncan was “A striking screen presence.”
Duncan was nominated for an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor, which was won that year by Michael Caine for “The Cider House Rules.”
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who starred with Duncan in the movie “The Scorpion King” said on Twitter: “When something happens, we always say it happens for a reason … Michael Clarke Duncan 12/10/57 – 9/3/12 I’ll miss you my brother.”
According to the Internet Movie Database, Duncan had two completed projects that have yet to be released on a nationwide basis. He is slated to appear in “The Challenger,” a boxing movie written and directed by Kent Moran. He will also appear in the Robert Townsend film, “In the Hive,” about an alternative school for boys who have been kicked out of other schools.
One of his co-stars in that film was Vivica A. Fox.
“My heart is shocked and saddened!! RIP Micheal Clark Duncan. U were the most gentle giant and the most gracious of a man! U wont b 4gotten! ” she tweeted.

It’s no secret, New York isn’t one of Lil Wayne’s favorite places to visit. Tunechi has expressed his feelings about performing in the city before, but when Weezy told MTV News earlier this week that he doesn’t like the Big Apple his comments caused quite a stir. Why now? Why didn’t Lil Wayne’s detractors come to light when he first told New Yorkers how he felt about doing shows in their town?

It was July 22, 2007, when the YMCMB juggernaut took the stage at the Beacon Theatre for his first headlining show in New York City. MTV News was on hand to shoot the show, and watched as Wayne got searched by police upon entering the venue. Once Tune finally took the stage, he expressed his frustrations to the crowd.

Lil Wayne’s feelings toward New York are nothing new. Yet, when Tunechi told MTV News this week that he doesn’t like the Big Apple, it sparked a public outcry. But in fact, the very first time Wayne made his distaste for NYC known — there was no outrage at all.

It was July 22, 2007, when the YMCMB juggernaut took the stage at the Beacon Theatre for his first headlining show in New York City. MTV News was on hand to shoot the show, and watched as Wayne got searched by police upon entering the venue. Once Tune finally took the stage, he expressed his frustrations to the crowd.

“Let me tell y’all somethin’: I just went through the worst f—in’ feelin’ ever backstage with y’all security and y’all police,” an aggravated Weezy said as the crowd cheered him. “So, I’m here to tell y’all this will be one of the only times you’ll see me on a New York stage, the way they’re treating me right now.”

The sold-out Beacon showered their rap hero with applause as he tore through his set rocking a vintage Run-DMC T-shirt. Outside of the venue, however, rappers feuded with police. Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, DJ Khaled and Kanye West were all on hand to rock with Weezy that night. “Going into the show, I felt like I was going to prison,” Khaled revealed to MTV News later that year.

But for Wayne, leaving the show was the worst part. After the concert, his bus was searched by police, who arrested him on charges of gun possession. Wayne eventually pleaded guilty and was given a yearlong sentence. In 2010, the rap star served an eight-month bid in New York’s Riker’s Island. It seems obvious that the Big Apple holds a ton of bad memories for the MC.

So when MTV News caught up with Wayne on Monday in Las Vegas, and he told us, “You know, flat out, I don’t like New York,” it was clear to us that he wasn’t referring to the city’s citizens or the rap community.

In fact, Wayne went on to say how he had an “awesome” time performing in the city with his YMCMB protégé é Nicki Minaj during her August 14 show at the Roseland Ballroom. Still, DJs at NY’s Hot 97 radio station — who have been carrying on a feud with Weezy and Nicki Minaj — charged that the multiplatinum spitter had disrespected New Yorkers and fielded a number of calls from riled-up listeners.

New York State Sen. Malcolm Smith took things a step further and held a Times Square press conference on Wednesday demanding that Tunechi apologize to the city. But we’ll probably see Tha Carter X before we see Lil Wayne say “I’m sorry.”

T.I “Go Get it”

Two years after releasing “Teflon Don”, Rick Ross was back full pledge with his fifth studio album “God Forgives, I Don’t”. The rapper returned to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200 after falling short of ruling the chart with his previous record in 2010.

It became Rozay’s fourth chart topper, joining his first three No. 1 albums; 2006’s “Port of Miami”, 2008’s “Trilla” and 2009’s “Deeper Than Rap”. It also marked his best sales week, surpassing the 198,000 sales number posted by “Trilla”.

His latest album boasted his collaboration works with the likes of Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Usher and Drake. “[It] is a very dark story. It’s extremely lyrical, the music is next level. I’m expecting nothing but the biggest results,” he once said.

Among those collaborations, Rozay called his track with Dre and Hov a “masterpiece.” He gushed of the appropriately-titled song “3 Kings”, “I feel it’s the biggest collaboration in hip-hop. Not just this year, maybe previous years.”
