Famed Director John Singleton Dead At 51

(Los Angeles, CA) – Reports have been conflicting since he suffered a massive stroke on April 17th, but now it appears the worst has been confirmed.  Legendary film director John Singleton has died.

Singleton checked himself into Cedars Sinai after returning from a trip to Costa Rica. He was experiencing problems with his legs and wasn’t feeling well.  He had a stroke in his hospital room.

Conflicting reports followed. Some said he was okay.  Others said he was in a coma and even after yesterday’s report that he was on life support and unresponsive, another report surfaced saying he was in a medically induced coma and that he was getting better by the day.  That obviously was not true.

The varying stories can most likely be attributed to the battle of his estate.  Allegedly, the family had been in a dispute over who should be granted conservatorship since he slipped into a coma.

Singleton made history after becoming the youngest person ever to be nominated for an Oscar, at the age of 24, for his film “Boyz In The Hood” He went on to direct projects of all genres including 2 Fast and Furious, Four Brothers and Black Snake Moan. He was also a producer on the highly acclaimed “Hustle and Flow”.

Most recently, his FX serious “Snowfall” was preparing for its third season.

Suge Knight Takes Plea Deal, Will Serve 28 Years in Prison

(Los Angeles, CA) – If there was ever a real bogey man, ask anybody in the music industry and they’d probably say Suge Knight was it.  Using a street mentality and no limit scare and enforcement tactics, the former football player was able to turn Death Row Records into one of the most profitable labels in the business. With a roster that once included Snoop Dogg, Tupac and Dr. Dre, it’s easy to see how Knight was able to build the empire that he did.

But in the faithful words of Reality star Nene Leakes,’You never win when you’re dirty.’ And that empire crumbled about as fast as it was built and life and business continued to roll downhill for knight.

His recent troubles involve manslaughter in which Suge was seen on video running over a man in his truck at a Compton burger establishment three years ago. His trial for murder, attmepted murder and hit-and-run was set to start with jury selection on Monday.  But, the former Death Row Executive was in court yesterday to enter a no contest plea to voluntary manslaughter and see a host of other charges dropped. In the deal, he’ll serve 28 years in prison.
