In the music video, which Joyner Lucas directed, the cheating rapper stands idly by while his vindictive ex-girlfriend breaks up all the expensive things he bought her.
The video opens with the ex-girlfriend cutting up his sneaker collection and pouring bleach on his clothes. Then she moves to the living room where she pours wine on his luxurious sofa, knifes the cushions, smashes his dining room table, and swings a bat at his computer monitor.
Through the destruction, Joyner raps:
“I broke your heart, huh?” You knew I was a f–k nigga from the start, huh? You should’ve listened when they said I was a dog, huh? You should’ve listened to your head when you had thoughts, huh?”

“You run your b-tch through the mud, you deserve that So you can feel it for yourself where it hurt at What goes around comes around, I know you heard that While you was creepin’, tell me, did it not occur that There’s niggas slidin’ in the DMs every AM, every PM Used to be like automatic, she would curve that.”
Popular Youtuber and Instagram influencer Omi in a Hellcat faces 514 years in prison after prosecutors indicted him and two associates in a scheme to sell copyrighted cable network programs to thousands of subscribers on his online firestick service.
Prosecutors say Omi, 36, and his two associates, Jesse Gonzales, 42, of Pico Rivera, Calif., and Michael Barone, 36, of Richmond Hill, N.Y., must forfeit nearly $35 million in assets, including over 50 luxury cars and motorcycles, as well as dozens of homes and businesses in Philadelphia.
Omi’s companies operated under different names, including Gears TV, Reboot, Reloaded and Gears.
Thousands of users paid a monthly fee to access premium cable TV and sports content through firesticks.
His illegal enterprise earned him over $30 million between March 2016 and November 2019 when his homes were raided by the feds, VladTV reports.
The Philadelphia native, real name Bill Omar Carrasquillo, is charged with conspiracy, violating the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, reproduction of a protected work, access device fraud, making false statements to a bank, income tax evasion and money laundering.
Federal agents seized nearly all of Omi’s assets in a raid in 2019. Feds also froze his girlfriend’s bank accounts.
Still, he continued to taunt the feds on his YouTube channel and in interviews with other influencers.
Omi’s lawyer, Donte Mills, stated his client is being falsely accused, and that his enterprise was legit.
“Mr. Carrasquillo tapped into a brand-new, unregulated industry and was very successful. Most people are called pioneers when they do that; Omar is called a criminal. The government assumes my client was not smart enough to do this legally because of his background. He is and we will prove that.”

The “Halo” singer added:
“I admire and respect all of you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. This is the first year that I really understand what it means to be alive and to live in the moment. It’s the first time that I have an understanding of how fragile life truly is, how hard life can be at times, and therefore how important it is to stop and smell the roses during the good times.
“I thought I knew that at 21 or 30… but I didn’t.
“The more mature I become, the more I understand and the deeper my joy grows. There’s a freedom and liberation knowing that I’ve made it to the other side of my sacrifice. I’m finally giving myself permission to enjoy the seeds I’ve worked so hard to plant my whole life.”
The “Lion King” star, pictured with daughter, Blue Ivy, then turned her attention to people who believe life is over at 40, stating, “This has absolutely been the best I’ve felt in my life. I’m so grateful to be GROWN, GROWN!”

Authorities have confirmed a body pulled out of the Illinois River is missing Illinois State University graduate student Jelani “JJ” Day.
The body was discovered floating near the south bank of the Illinois River on September 4, according to authorities.
The body was bloated and his features unrecognizable after being submerged in the water for days.
Jelani’s Chrysler 300 was found abandoned in a wooded area, near where the body was recovered.
The family was notified about the body, but police said identification of the remains could take weeks. A backlog of DNA cases delayed the identification process, police said.
The LaSalle County coroner’s office made the positive identification through forensic dental records and DNA on Friday, September 17 and announced their findings on Thursday, Sept. 23.
Jelani’s cause of death was tentatively ruled a suicide, since the body was recovered near the Illinois Rt. 251 Bridge.
Jelani, who was studying to be a speech pathologist, was last seen on surveillance video at a Bloomington marijuana dispensary on the morning of August 24.
The clothing Jelani wore outside the cannabis store were found neatly folded in his car.
His wallet was discarded about three blocks away from where his car was located, authorities say.
The Day family is heartbroken and demanding answers about how the investigation was conducted.
Jelani’s mom, Carmen Bolden Day said it was not like her son to go missing intentionally without telling anyone his whereabouts.
She doesn’t accept the tentative ruling of suicide as a cause of death.
“He wasn’t depressed. He didn’t have any kind of pressures that would make him want to escape from life,” she said. “So I do feel as if there was someone involved.”
“His dad actually has cancer and Jelani is the bone marrow match for his dad, and he would never abandon his father like that,” she told ABC7 Eyewitness News Wednesday. “He would come here in Chicago and visit him at Northwestern hospital, sit with him, you know, encourage him, pray with him.”
Day recalled the last phone conversation she had with her son.
“He said, ‘OK momma, I just wanted to hear your voice.’ And that’s what he did. He said that to me all the time,” she told Newsy. “He told me he was going to class and that he would call me later. He called me later on that night. (He) didn’t want nothing, we were just talking. And he said again, ‘OK momma, I’ll talk to you later. I just wanted to hear your voice.’ And that was our last conversation, on Monday the 23rd.”
Day’s family wrote Thursday on Facebook: “Our hearts are broken. We ask that you continue to pray for our family during what will be very hard days ahead.
“At this moment there are more questions than answers surrounding Jelani’s disappearance and death, and that is where we will focus our energy. As of this moment, we do not know what happened to Jelani and we will not stop until we do.”
Denzel Washington recently revealed what God has been telling him to do every time he prays.
The Academy Award-winning actor was among the speakers at a Christian men’s conference hosted by First Baptist Orlando in Florida on Saturday, The Cristian Post reports.
“At 66, getting ready to be 67, having just buried my mother, I made a promise to her and to God, not just to do good the right way, but to honor my mother and my father by the way I live my life, the rest of my days on this Earth. I’m here to serve, to help, to provide,” Washington shared at “The Better Man Event.”
“In every prayer, all I hear is: ‘Feed my sheep.’ That’s what God wants me to do,” the actor added.
“What’s that mean? What I found out in the last couple of years is there are all kinds of sheep. So that’s why I talk to experienced shepherds to help guide me.
“The world has changed. What is our role as a man? The John Wayne formula is not quite a fit right now. But strength, leadership, power, authority, guidance, patience are God’s gift to us as men. We have to cherish that, not abuse it.”

The “Malcolm X” star continued:
“[The Bible] says in the last days we’ll become lovers of ourselves. The number one photograph now is a selfie. So we all want to lead. We’re willing to do anything — ladies and young men — to be influential… Fame is a monster and we all have these ladders and battles, roads we have to walk in our given lives. Be you famous or whoever’s out there listening, we all have our individual challenges. It’s cliché [but] money, don’t make it better. It doesn’t. Fame just magnifies the problems and the opportunities.”
The three-time Golden Globes winner added:
“Stay on your knees. Watch me, but listen to God. I hope that the words in my mouth and the meditation of my heart are pleasing in God’s sight, but I’m human. I’m just like you. What I have will not keep me on this Earth for one more day. Share what you know, inspire who you can, seek advice. If you want to talk to one someone, talk to the one that can do something about it. Constantly develop those habits.”
Washington concluded by acknowledging that although he has money and fame, what he’s discovered is that one always needs to leave “room to learn.”
