Failed Dave Chappelle Attacker Previously Wrote Song About The Comedian

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: Supplied by WENN.com / WENN The story behind the recent attack on Dave Chappelle continues to get weirder. The culprit previously wrote a song about the comedian and the bars were mired in struggle. As per Raw Story the recent attempt to harm the comic is much more layered than anyone originally thought. On Wednesday, May 4 TMZ reported that Isaiah Lee had penned a song referencing Chappelle. As expected the track falls just as short as when he tried to rush the stage at the Hollywood Bowl. Titled “Dave Chappell”, yes you read that correctly, the 2020 song takes aim at the Half Baked star but the effort is largely underwhelming with lyrics like “laugh at you n***ers a joke” repeated over and over. Additionally, NONAME_TRAPPER (his stage name), s...

Leaked testimony from Haiti suspects says plan was to arrest, not kill president

A group of Colombians and Haitian Americans suspected of assassinating Haitian President Jovenel Moise told investigators they were there to arrest him, not kill him, the Miami Herald and a person familiar with the matter said on Sunday. Moise was shot dead early on Wednesday at his Port-au-Prince home by what Haitian authorities say was a unit of assassins made up of 26 Colombians and two Haitian Americans, plunging the troubled Caribbean nation into deeper turmoil. The murder and uncertainty about who hatched the plot is the latest in a succession of blows to hit the struggling country, which has appealed for international help. Washington has so far rebuffed Haiti’s request for troops, though a senior U.S. official said on Sunday that Washington was sending a technical team to assess th...

The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) says that its leader, Sheik Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, is not an enemy of Nigeria.
