Bushwick Bill Released From Custody, No Longer Facing Deportation

Bushwick Bill is a free man. Facing the threat of deportation, after getting arrested in Atlanta last May for drug charges, XXLMag.com has learned that the former Geto Boy won his removal case, and was released from custody last Monday (October 18). XXL spoke to the Jamaican-born rapper and his lawyer to clarify his legal status in the country.

According to his attorney, Carlos Solomiany, when Bill was arrested five months ago for possession of marijuana, police did a background check and found out that along with carrying a green-card, he had three previous convictions on his record. After paying his bail, BB was transfered to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) who tried to initiate removal proceedings against him. But after last Thursday’s hearing on the case, the rap vet is “back to being a lawful permanent resident of the United States,” Solomiany said.

Although the misdemeanor charges are still pending, Solomiany is confident that the Small Souljah will not have to serve any more time behind bars, as he hopes to enroll him into a rehabilitation drug court program.

Fans first became aware of Chuckwick’s legal troubles when he failed to show for an appearance at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors last June, where he was scheduled to perform the Geto Boys’s classic song “Mind Playing Tricks on Me,” along with Willie D. Game took over in Bill’s absence.

Although the Little Big Man is now free, it doesn’t seem like fans will ever get to see the veteran Southern rap group together any time soon. XXL asked Bill if he plans on working with Willie D and Scarface again, and he said they didn’t seem interested in his new musical direction. His 2009 album, My Testimony of Redemption, saw the born-again rapper rhyming about his religious leanings.

“I don’t think any of them is interested,” he said of appearing on record with his former partners-in-rhyme. “I’ve never got the vibe that they would do a gospel song. ‘Cause when they talking about doing another Geto Boys album I said I would do it if I could rap like I’m rapping on my gospel album, I didn’t get a whole lot of cosigning on that from all the political parties concerned.”

Bill is currently working on his new album, The Road to Redemption. A court date has yet to be determined in his misdemeanor drug case.

Big Boi, Keri Hilson Surprise Thousands Of Students In Chicago

Atlanta natives Big Boi and Keri Hilson surprised 1000 high school students today (October 21st) in Chicago, Illinois.   

The superstar rapper and singer, along with MTV  News correspondent Tim Kash, spoke to the elated students as part of the Get Schooled National Challenge and Tour.  

The purpose of the tour is to engage students and encourage them to improve their high school graduation rates, with the goal of increasing college completion rates.  

"Before I started doing music, I was actually going to school to study child psychology, but, when I was in 11th grade, we went platinum," Big Boi revealed. "But I still finished and graduated with honors…you need that."

During the Youth Summit, Big Boi, Keri Hilson and Tim Kash engaged students in a conversation about the challenges they face as students, while encouraging the students to achieve their educational goals. 

Keri Hilson also performed her newest single "Pretty Girl Rock" during the Youth Summit. 

"I juggled a lot in high school," said Keri Hilson, who revealed that that she was co-captain of her high school basketball team, in addition to participating in theater.

"I had to learn balance," said Hilson. "I had to learn to prioritize my time. I think that is the key to making it through high school in life in general, is knowing what's important. attacking that and executing everything."

T.I. Sued Over 'Welcome Back Party' Before Heading To Prison

T.I. may be heading to prison for the next 11 months, but that has not stopped an angry promoter for suing the rap star over a canceled "Welcome Home" concert.

Carl D. Davis filed a lawsuit against T.I. in the United States District Court for the Southern Division of Alabama on October 18th,  

Davis claims he was supposed to host T.I.'s first "Welcome Back Party" which was supposed to be held at the Birmingham Jefferson Coliseum on May 28th, 2010.

According to Davis' lawsuit, he flew to Atlanta and gave over $80,000 to representatives for T.I. to confirm his performance.

Things began to sour when T.I. allegedly hit local radio station 95.7 FM and stated that he would host the party, but not perform.

T.I.'s announcement allegedly caused many fans to question the validity of the concert, resulting in an extreme amount of stress on Davis, who was ultimately hospitalized over the ordeal.

"Coupled with his financial expenditures since the inception of the agreement, Davis began to experience heavy stress, suffer chest pains, nausea, emotional distress and hospitalization because of the vast amount of investments he made," Davis' lawyer claims in the lawsuit.

According to Davis, he lost over $340,000, which was his entire life savings and is suing the rapper to recover some of his money.
