Atlanta- Dayvon Daquan Bennett, also known as King Von, a Chicago Native was gunned down outside Monaco Hookah Lounge , 255 W. Trinity Ave. SW, a nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia after a reported argument happened between two groups which left three dead and three injured.
Two of the officers involved were in uniform working off-duty security jobs at the hookah lounge, and a third was on-duty nearby, according to police. None of the officers were injured.

According to ABC7, “The Georgia Bureau of Investigations was requested to respond and investigate the officer involved shooting aspect of the incident. APD homicide investigators also responded and are investigating the deaths. Officials said part of the investigations will include determining which individuals were struck by gunfire from the suspects and whether any were struck by gunfire from the officers.Charges are anticipated against the two suspects detained on-scene and additional charges are likely as the investigation continues, police said. The identities of the other victims are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.The investigation into the incident remains open and very active, officials said.”
King Von, a rising rapper known for his visceral storytelling, passed away in Atlanta on November 6th. Born and raised in Chicago’s O’Block neighborhood, Dayvon Bennett emerged from difficult circumstances to become one music’s most promising stars. The 26-year-old artist left us just as the world was beginning to grasp the depths of his talents. Last week, Von shared his debut album, Welcome To O’Block, offering a cinematic and vivid account of his origin story, providing an inside perspective on neighborhood life and the trauma wrought by the criminal justice system.
King Von was a luminary — a natural storyteller, an artist on the verge of superstardom who had so much more to give the world. He overcame myriad unjust circumstances yet remained steadfastly dedicated to giving back to the community that raised him, O’Block. He was a devoted father, a deeply loyal friend, and a man who took care of his people before himself. We are heartbroken for his family, his friends, his team, and his fans. Long live King Von.
We’ve experienced a New Moon in Virgo ♍️ September 17, 2020
This New Moon 🌑 gave us the support necessary to make practical plans, make new healthier lifestyle changes and manifest the success we desire. New Moons in general are really good for manifesting the things we need 🆚 the trivial things we have convinced ourselves we want.
The past Full Moon 🌕 in Pisces ♓️ September 1st, 2020
Gave us the room to release and remove the rose colored glasses of any illusive realities and “Truths” we tend to tell ourselves when we don’t want to release what’s not working.
It may have appeared to be difficult to see what aspects of our lives we need to release during that moon transit but the real truths showed us, nevertheless. Our responsibility during these transits was to be honest with ourselves of the things that are not working. That way we can operate well in the things that are working for us.
Virgo ♍️ energy is the sign of work, industry, mental health, and practicality. Pisces energy is the sign of dreams, visions, divine creativity and spirituality. The polar opposites can collide when there is awareness. For example faith is not something that should always be taken practically.
Just because you have faith that you will get a million dollars tomorrow doesn’t mean it’ll practically happen. Not to say it’s impossible but it’s not the most practical thing to bank on when you haven’t done the practical work.
This energy is preparing us for the transits happening in October. Now that Saturn 🪐 has gone direct (Sept. 29th) we now see the areas in our lives where we can implement discipline.
Discipline is freedom and what we need in order to set this new foundation in our lives. Adjusting to the world and it’s “new normal” is an illusion. We are the masters of our own destinies even in the midst of tragedy in this world.
Full Moon in Aries ♈️ October 1, 2020
Allows us to destroy, burn and release old structures that are outdated and no longer serving us. With the help of Mars in Retrograde (also in Aries) we have no choice but to be honest of our truest desires and the passions that drives us. All motives are being exposed and has been since Full Moon in Scorpio ♏️.
This energy encouraged us to take our mask off back in Taurus ♉️ season, leading us to be more vulnerable to change our spiritual value. Aries and Scorpio, both ruled by Mars is giving us the permission to be casket ready so we can transform and rise like the Phoenix that we are.
Trauma, fear and oppression is being unpacked with the help of Pluto in Capricorn ♑️ (until October 4th). Lion’s gate 8/8/2020 left us with the choice of being on the side of suffering or ascension.
When we allowed our egos and pride to stand down during Leo ♌️ Season we were able to see where things hurt so we can truly heal, release and transcend. The six (6) retrogrades & eclipse season during this summer was our blessing in disguise. Giving us time to slow down, feel and reevaluate the path we must follow to our destiny.
Now that we are in the midst of harvest season and Fall Equinox 🍂🍁 we can now reap the benefits of our labor. Not the regular nine (9) to five (5) physical work that we’re used to but that twenty- four seven (24/7) spiritual work that we were all well over due for.
As things go back to a more progressive time we can truly manifest fearlessly if we have truly been doing the work. Following the sun and moon cycles had been a lost art in our culture due to miseducation. Now that we have more astrologers, diviners, medicine men and women speaking up there’s no excuse to not question how we relate and connect to our universe. It is simply our birth right.
In the month of October. The season of death and transformation is truly amongst us. I believe most spiritual beings are more than ready to ascend and operate through our higher selves unapologetically.
Full moon in Aries ♈️ (Oct. 1st) allows us to initiate the destruction of anything that is not serving our higher selves. This cardinal fire is the beginning of “New Emotional Intelligence” I say.
Libra ♎️ Season is about partnerships whether marriage or business. Questions you may wanna ask yourself in this Venus ruled season is:
“Who am I willing to lay in bed with?”
“Am I comfortable with waking up with this energy everyday?”
“How do I relate to the people around me ?”
Are you included in this “New World Order”?
Refer to Kanye West Video “Famous” for symbolic reasons & reflect with friends about what you think Kanye was getting at.
By the time Scorpio season is here you should be comfortable with who you share your intimate space with. Whether it’s a friend, lover, business partner or spouse.
How is the intimate relationship with yourself? How do you value you? How do others value you? These are questions that will occur by the time Full Moon/Blue Moon in Taurus ♉️ arrives (Oct. 31st). Not just a Full Moon but a Blue Moon on Halloween.
This will surely be spiritually LIT 🔥 with the right intentions for self. Be sure to get your rituals and routines together like Virgo season taught us.
Until November my cosmic Sunflowers 🌻.

Allegedly Russell Wilson gifted the mothers of Future’s children each 10K College Funds for the shorties. The Wilson’s are always giving. This will help the children bond as a blended family providing them all with the same opportunity in life. This is a great form of charity to humanity because it’s a investment in making them good citizens of life. Scholarships are grants to learn for free purposes of course to create a union to produce great fruit(s).
The joining of marriage partners no matter if they’re independently wealthy, such as Ciara and Russell, establishes a estate and trust that provides a wealth of information and resources to learn how to help make humanity better; while having a rich life.
Some people are purely understanding of how truly great this is, and some feel like Future should snub him when in reality they should all just be grateful as a unit they are able to provide that level of lifestyle choices to their children as a collective. This should breed out jealousy between siblings with different fathers and status. This can help blend the multiple relationships and personalities of the situation.
Scholarship is a revenue donation to access other social commerce services, hence why tuition is a revenue and you can receive a credit for continuing education. Human Resources are very important for us to live life , as living beings we help bridge the gap with all life forms.
Even though all humans don’t go the virtuous cycle of life, it’s good to have the children introduced to a good life so that they can make choices. How they make their choices and what they do with the resources is not on you, because they will receive their fruits, good and bad.
Well TMZ has done it again, lying 🤥 saying it was a 1,000 people at a house party. The party was shared live by Tink Purcell, who confirmed via one of her videos that they “were out west being ratchet”, which was the one thing TMZ did report correctly. This was definitely a Komak production.
WGN reported at 11:50 am that a viral party was out south, that was a lie. They updated their story at 1:07 PM to reflect the facts. Which is a shame because they are actually located in the local area and should have access to the information to state facts. What do you think was their purpose for creating this narrative?
I mean out west throw more successful house parties then out south and their parties are most likely to last without drama because everyone knows everyone and they have a certain level of respect for one another. Let’s just use the Fefe’s as an example because ain’t no fefe happening out south.
If this was out south, it wouldn’t have probably made it until the police came, the police would have had to be summoned due to drama.
What Should We Take Away From This and How Can We Move Forward?
People are suffering from mental and behavior issues. They are trying their best to cope with being indoors and restricted. It’s hard and not everyone can do it especially if they don’t have their purpose figured out.
This was irresponsible of them all but we are not in the position to judge 👩🏾⚖️ them, we can educate ourselves as a community (speaking to “Black or Minority” Americans) on how this effects/affects us socially and economically. It makes us look 👀 a little crazy and that we have a lack of social skills for responsibility.
Those who have children, elders, or people in their life with preexisting conditions should care to be mindful of others. Your love ❤️ ones matter. You matter and I hope you know that. I wish for them to do some research on this matter outside of the news to accept the real information that we are being targeted for depopulation, so this is a serious matter for building immunity to the Rona aka coronavirus bka Covid 19.
Ye is really from a “tribe called check a hoe”, that is Chicago. Two of hip hop’s first billionaire artist are from New York and Chicago. What a wonderful time to be alive.
According to Forbes, Ye is worth 1.3 Billion United States 🇺🇸 Dollars 💵 but according to Ye, since he claims they can’t count, he’s worth 3.3 Billion. Allegedly Kanye reached out to Forbes after they published their annual billionaires list, according to Shade Room, because they didn’t put him on it.
He texted a staff member saying “You know what you’re doing”, adding to the conversation, “You’re toying with me and I’m not finna lye [sic] down and take it anymore in Jesus name”
“Forbes journalist Zack O’Malley Greenburg explained that when the magazine featured West on the cover of the magazine last year, they didn’t label him a billionaire.”, according to CNN.
In conclusion, it seems that he was undervalued if they didn’t label him a billionaire and he had to come forward with the receipts 🧾 to receive credit for his claim. Regardless, Ye is a Billionaire, that’s facts, and he wants the world 🌎 to know.
Bashar Barakah Jackson, known professionally as Pop Smoke, was an American rapper and songwriter whom home was invaded by two men with hoodies who fired multiple shots critically wounding Pop Smoke, as it was reported by TMZ. He was signed to Victor Victor Worldwide and Republic Records and released his first single “Welcome to the Party” in April 2019.
According to TMZ, this incident happened around 4:30 AM in the Hollywood Hills and he was rushed by Ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood where he was pronounced dead. His home was believed to be rented, and was owned by Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star Teddi Mellencamp‘s husband, Edwin Arroyave who owns several homes in LA.
One suspect was handcuffed but later released as he was determined not be involved. No one has been caught or identified; as far as we know according to TMZ. Unidentifiable source says his brother is one of the main suspects, allegedly.
Rest In Peace Pop.

Mike Dee, Pop’s Brother speaks out against the allegations from speculators and “public investigators”.
Pop Smoke 💨 murder also appears to be a target according to TMZ’s recent report as they share information supported by the surveillance footage.
“… you see 4 men approach the home at around 4:30 AM and sneak around back. A couple minutes pass before 3 of the 4 walk back up the side of the home to the front. The 4th apparently walked in the backdoor but no camera was trained on it. The next time you see the man, he exits through the front door of the house.”
It was reported that it was multiple shots fired inside the home only to have struck Pop Smoke according to the evidence provided to TMZ, there were no other victims.
FBG Duck, a Chicago Musical Illustrator, published a video recorded by Money Strong TV on his channel two days ago on Dec. 7, 2019; and with the apparent loss of legends from the City of Chicago, who are without a doubt gone too soon because of various tragic situations; he proclaims their affects in and on culture. In his illustrated story he mentions Jojo, Pappy, Zack TV, Lil Marc, Dooski, Nuski, Fredo Santana, LA Capone, Lil Mister, and Smylez. With the current loss of another great Chicago Legend Juice Wrld; and Famous Dex being recently hospitalized to recover from seizures, there is no concrete word if he has been released, there is much to be concerned about.
The murder and drug epidemic of Chicago has depreciated the circulation of producers in culture from the city, putting the ideas out there to be mocked by upcoming or lurking seasoned artist to develop from other markets. Every artist mentioned has a different level of success, impact, trade, and skill that contributed to the identity of who Chicago is in the urban culture world. A legend is someone who creates or develops a traditional story, who taps into their genius, and sculps a path for others to follow or to observe only to be influenced by their impact. No matter how well known the legend is globally, it can be very well known in pockets or wide areas to be proclaimed a legend.
Watch FBG Duck Declare Chicago Legends.
This brings attention to the social issues that we need to solve in Chicago, and beyond, that deal ultimately with poverty, civic engagement, health, and the brotherhood of humanity. His piece of art pushes towards conversations that need to be had to better our community and restore unity between the gangs or just those who are conflicted and need to heal in order to let go of past conflicts or traumas. In the words of FBG Duck, “just to show yourself a better you”, is worth the participation in helping leaders like him carry messages like this far and wide in the diaspora to help appreciate the progress made in the culture.
I’d like to send love and light to all of the families of our lost and slain ones, even those we lost to non violent tragic situations because we are all still suffering from a bigger issue. Our health, wealth, and our mind state suffers or take constant hits (Urban Dark Hue Beings) because we are in a constant state of oppression while walking dead. We must prescribe a remedy to our ignorance, discipline ourselves, and love one another because the world is depending on it. We are depending on it. You existence is dependent on it.
Ermias “Nipsey Hussle” Asghedom, age 33, born August 15, 1985 was shot and killed March 31, 2019 in Hyde Park LA area in front of his clothing store, The Marathon. It was reported first by TMZ and then reported by other sources.
I know it’s weird to mourn the lost of someone that you’ve never met but I felt his energy, he was a Ethiopian King. He was a long distance mentor, brother in spirit, and someone who I was happy to be chosen to represent and present the voiceless, or misrepresented. He is and will always be a pillar in our world, not just the Hip Hop Community. He used his voice for better. He lead change, he was a change agent. So with all do respect and honor to his character and his assassination as reported by LA’s Mayor Eric Garcetti and LAPD via CBSN, he was not a “tireless activist”, he was a man of the most high doing God’s work from the Organic Laws: Love, Truth, Freedom, Peace, and Justice, living Ma’at in his own way. Let’s set the record straight.
I will say that his murder is very questionable and so is the alleged killer, asking ” What ya’ll gone do ?”, on a alleged IG page: shittycuzz_0fficial or ima_god_in_da_streetz__ , where there is a claim made he’s innocent. Either way, none of what we assume will change the circumstances and bring him back, so I will digress.
I will say to never believe anything you hear and half of what you see because death hoax do happen. We do know that the CIA, FBI, and other government agencies have conspired to assassinate many for their political infusions. And Nipsey was one of those political infusions, who has his own mind, and amassed a lot of power independently which is known as a threat to some here in the U.S. or considered a Revolutionary Act.

I was invited to hang w/ Tarhonda on set, at which turned out to be a 90’s House Party. Appearances were made by: Chella H, Shawnna, John Blu, Sean Dale, Cold Heart of Crucial Conflict; and a gang of Auburn Gresham and Simeon kids (you know it was more than just us there lol). It was a great party and video shoot, and everyone was beautiful with dope vibes. It’s always good to be around good people.
