Police have finally released official dashcam footage of Laquan McDonald being fatally shot 16 times by a police officer as he was walking away from a chaotic scene involving several police officers. Officer Jason Van Dyke was charged with first-degree murder earlier today in regards to the incident, and a Chicago prosecutor had this to say about the incident.
I’ve been a prosecutor for nearly 30 years. I have personally investigated and prosecuted numerous cases of police misconduct and public corruption, I’ve been involved in hundreds of murder investigations and trials, and I’ve seen some of the most violent and graphic evidence and crime scene photos that you can only imagine. To watch a 17-year-old young man die in such a violent manner is simply disturbing and I have absolutely no doubt that this video will tear at the hearts of all Chicagoans.
The dash cam footage clearly shows McDonald walking away, and not towards Van Dyke, but his attorney has continued to argue that his client did not “act inappropriately” during the incident.
Officers were on the scene responding to a 911 call that someone was stealing cars on the south side of the city. McDonald was armed with a knife, but Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel maintains that Van Dyke violated McDonald’s trust “at every level.”
Canadian rapper Belly has been a mainstay behind the scenes, helping to craft music for several stars within the industry, most notably his comrade The Weeknd, whom he collaborated with on “Might Not” and assisted in writing 6 tunes from his Beauty Behind the Madness album. This extensive work is what helped Belly build his name and reputation amongst industry insiders, while also cultivating his own following.
Today it is being reported that Belly has officially signed on to join the roster of JAY Z‘s Roc Nation. Speaking with Billboard, he revealed that it was a mere conversation that led to the deal.
I think I just got the right ears with it to the point where Jay Z was interested and heard it and invited me over,” Belly says during an interview with Billboard. “And we had a conversation and that was that, you know? A man’s handshake, that’s all it takes sometimes.
With the announcement, Belly also took the opportunity to reveal some new content. The first one being the very eerie visual for “No Option,” one of the standout cuts from his Up For Days project released back in May. While he was at it, Belly doubled down and also unveiled “Money Go.” The track is produced by Velous, Swanky Music/Coke Boys artist/producer who famously produced Kanye West‘s “All Day” amongst other work. Check out both below.
You’ll have to excuse us with a late pass on this one because we were too busy selfishly listening to this project before we wanted to share it with you guys. Harlem is ringing with a new voice in Hip-Hop and it’s coming from a singer, Tim Vocals. This new album, which stands for Real N*gga Bars, only weighs in at 10 tracks but spans various sounds to keep your music ADD satisfied. You might expect his lyrics to be coming out of a rapper’s mouth but he adds melodies that a lot of rappers are attempting to compose and failing. There are classic R&B vibes on this as well as what R&B should be sounding like in 2015. It also contains features from Smoke DZA, Vinny Chase, Da$h, and others.
We can already see the Youtube covers of these songs popping up…
You can stream it below and purchase it on iTunes.

After transitioning from acting to music a few years ago, Mack Wilds made a big splash with his debut album New York: A Love Story, even earning a Grammy nomination. The 26-year-old has released new music sporadically within the past 12 months and was featured in Adele’s much talked about video for “Hello.” Today, he returns with a brand new cut titled “Love In The 90z,” which harkens back to everyone’s favorite decade, much like the material found on his debut. There is no word on whether or not the record will appear on any set projects but by the sound of “Love In The 90z,” 90s aficionados might be in store for a doozy.

A Chicago police officer accused of shooting and killing an African American teen last year has been charged in his murder.
In a statement released by the State’s Attorney’s office, Officer Jason Van Dyke has been charged in the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald in 2014.
Since the shooting death of McDonald, family and community leaders have been fighting to have the video released of the shooting. A judge requested the dash cam video to be released by Wednesday. Those who viewed the tape say the teen appeared to have had a small knife and was walking away when Officer Van Dyke began shooting and didn’t stop until the teen fell.
An autopsy was performed on McDonald and it appears he was shot at least two times in his back. It also shows PCP and hallucinogenic drugs were in his system at the time of his death.
McDonald’s death isn’t the only one being investigated by Chicago police. Superintendent Paul McCarthy is recommending the firing of officer Dante Servin in the death of 22-year-old Rekia Boyd in 2012. McCarthy says that Servin showed “incredibly poor judgement” before shooting Boyd. Servin was acquitted in the murder of Boyd back in April.
