PROSECUTORS WANT VIDEO CAMERAS BANNED FROM COURTROOM DURING RICO TRIAL DUE TO WITNESS SAFETY CONCERNS: According to Allhiphop, Fani Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County, has filed a motion to forbid videotaping of Young Thug‘s trial on the grounds that doing so might cause problems for the case’s witnesses. Willis said, “Several witnesses have expressed safety concerns to the State and they are concerned about the safety of themselves and their families should they choose to testify. The State is concerned that video recordings of witnesses’ and victims’ faces could endanger these individuals’ safety.” Willis also stated that the state is also worried about the impact on due process and the truth-finding function of the court proceeding but had no issues with audio recordings of the trial. However, if witnesses are aware that they are being videotaped and that their testimony may endanger their personal safety, they may be hesitant to testify and give complete information. Young Thug, real name Jeffery Williams and Gunna, real name Sergio Kitchens, were two of the 28 suspected YSL gang members/associates who were detained earlier this year and charged with various racketeering offenses.
ICE CUBE REVEALS WHY HE DECLINED VERZUZ BATTLES AGAINST LL COOL J AND SCARFACE: During an interview with Bootleg Kev, Ice Cube revealed why he turned down a Verzuz battle with LL Cool J and Scarface. He said, “I think they was talking LL at one point, they was talking Scarface at one point. I said, ‘No.’ Verzuz is good, but my concept would have been, ‘Yo, I’m a fan. You do this song for me.’ Like, okay, I get to have LL do my favorite LL songs and he gon’ have me do my favorite Ice Cube songs.” He continued, “And it’s not Verzuz, but it’s love. It’s like, ‘Yo, do this, and he do ‘Rock the Bells,’ and he asks me, ‘Yo, do ‘Once Upon a Time in the Projects.” That would have been my concept.” He added: “I can’t go against people I admire. LL is an OG to me in the game, so I can’t see it. Me and Scarface love each other, but we don’t communicate enough to do a Verzuz together. I don’t want it to be competition.”
