Summertime in the City

video

Now i aint posting this on no glamorizing shit......but this shit kinda disturbed me...and the story goes......


By TARYN ASHERFOX 2 News
DETROIT - Seven teenagers are shot at a bus stop in Detroit, victims of what's believed to be a planned hit. As they lay in hospital beds, police are searching for the gunmen currently loose on the streets. There have been no arrests, and authorities are working to enhance surveillance video.
Two young men used a Shell gas station at the corner of West Warren and Southfield in Detroit to scope out their target. Police say they covered their faces, pulled out their guns, walked over to a nearby bus stop, called out a name and then fired a barrage of bullets into the crowd, shooting seven teens. Six of them are students at Cody Ninth Grade Academy ranging in age from 14 to 17 years old.
Police have now confiscated a surveillance video recorded at the Shell station and are using it to track down the shooters believed to be in their teens.
Authorities are still actively looking for the shooters who took off running down Longacre, hopped into a green minivan and sped away. Dogs were brought in to search for the suspects and their weapons. While that effort was unsuccessful, police did eventually locate a green minivan a mile away on Joy Road. Evidence technicians examining the vehicle to see if this is the same one used in the getaway.
This shooting was the second in two weeks a Detroit public high school offering summer classes. Witnesses tell FOX 2 the shooting was retaliation from a previous argument.
"We have not confirmed where this all initiated from. We're investigating that as we speak," said Detroit Police Dep. Chief Rod Liggons.
Police have still not released the names of the seven victims, four males and three females, nor have they released the surveillance video.
A Detroit Police source tells FOX 2 that two of the teens are in critical condition and another is in temporary serious condition at Sinai-Grace Hospital. In total, paramedics brought two boys, ages 14 and 16, and a girl, age 17, to Sinai-Grace.
Three other teenage students were taken to Henry Ford Dearborn Hospital. A fourth, 19-year-old victim is also being treated, but it is unknown if he is a student. FOX 2 has been able to confirm that all four victims brought to that hospital have non-life threatening injuries.

A year + A day = Prison Time...1 year anniversary of Hot Soup






















Yep its a classic....
Say what u want but on July 1st 2008 i released in my opinion my opus...this album was about the one thing that made me who i am...Detroit...it was about everything that was goin on in my life at the time...the story of Hot Soup actually starts in the year of 2002....fresh off a distribution and manufacturing case that i got probation for i decided to stop hustling and start doing what i felt i was put on this planet for and thats record music...so when i started i hooked up with the Eastside Chedda Boyz .....word...i was cool with Tuff Tone me and him use to battle everyday in high school(Northwestern)...to be exact..and when the song "Oh Boy" took off i hooked up with him to use they studio and start recording...it was a good look...but we all know the production style of The Chedda Boyz really didnt sit to well with me...so i was looking for some dope producers which lead me to meeting Bird....who was Denaun Porter's understudy at the time...he gave me a sweet deal on some beats and i started recording in a studio that him and Denaun shared in Greenfield Plaza....Which i titled "Hot Soup"...which the title is actually a play on "Illmatic"....the story of the title of Illmatic is that is was some type of lunchbox/cooler type joint called "Chillmatic"....but the c and h was missing and Nas thougt that was a dope word...and i was like shit chill which is cold....so i said hot ...and thouth about all the words that goes with it...after a couple wack ones...i came up with soup...which took on its own meaning to me...the quote is "when u get sick of wack music, get some Hot Soup".....sad to say that project never saw the light of day...got spins in my hood which some say that was the illest shit i did...which i think its the wackest....but i scrapped it and started working on the Resevor album which i will blog about later...so after all the shit we did with the Resevor album which was getting a meeting with
Roc-a-Fella Records....it was that Hot Soup album that got them to start fucking wit me....i recorded another album titled "Browntown" that never saw the light of day ....smh @ Roc a Fella
which i will post soon...so after i got home from NY caught another case and had to do 8 months...i wrote non stop in jail ....and pretty much wrote Hot Soup...me and Speed planned on making this album in 2003 .....so January of 2008 we decided that we was gonna finally make the album that we wanted to hear...we would talk all the time about making a album strictly dedicated to Detroit music done very classy that sounds dirty and brought drama and comedy at the same time...so after DSOM 3 which i recorded 3 songs off of Speed beats...we had our start...so Speed started making beats 24/7 and we was working on this album from Jan-June...i had started back hustling so i took whatever i could stack up and put it all into that album which was every bit of $3500 and havent looked back since....i havent sold a bag since then...and every now and then i will shoot a lil move nothing serious tho...cant say i went cold turkey but i been way more focused on music....so i wanna thank u to everyone that supported it....
