Police claim Gray was apprehended without force, though bystanders have suggested otherwise, and video evidence shows Gray screaming while being forced into the police's van. What happened next is still being investigated, though by the time Gray arrived at the police station, he was unresponsive, unable to talk or breathe.

    Isn't it crazy how some rappers just refuse to retire? Take Jay Z for example, he retired about a decade ago and that lasted all of no time at all. It's hard to put down something you truly love, and even though rap is a young man's sport, this list is dedicated to those who hardly age.

    Charts Don’t Lie: November 24
    Nov 24, 2013 at 06:55am
    This week we have two new-comers on Charts Don't Lie, the first being buzzing singer Jhene Aiko and the latter, veteran in the game, Bun B. Jhene Aiko pulled pretty good numbers for her debut EP, leaving us hopeful for what's to come from the West Coast native. Her buzz will only continue to climb leading up to the release of her debut album, Soul(ed) Out, and so dropping the EP was definitely a good look for the singer. The EP was projected to move 25-30k, but surpassed 30k with 33,000 units opening week.

    Although reluctant at first, Bun B has readily accepted the title of "OG". The Houston rap legend explained his embrace of the term in a recent interview with Power 105's Breakfast Club, in which he discussed his early struggles as a Southern rap artist, his break on Jay Z's "Big Pimpin'," as well as the tropes of current Houston music. "We had to fight the hard fight." Bun said of UGK's attempts to break through in a New York dominated industry. "It wasn't as hard as the Geto boys and the people who came before us."

    The all red "Legends of the Summer" Jordans that were worn during the Jay-Z/Justin Timberlake tour had sneakerheads hopeful that these tonal kicks would someday hit retail. It doesn't seem like they will be released, which means the pairs that were made are that much more exclusive.
