Tekashi 69’s Associate Kooda B Was Sentenced To 54 Months For Chief Keef Shooting

Now that controversial rapper Tekashi 69 is (mostly) back on the streets, the fervor surrounding his case and the other members of the Nine Trey set has died down. However, the cases for many of the members were still ongoing as recently as this morning, when 69 associate Kooda B was sentenced to 54 months in prison, as reported by Complex. After his release, Kooda will be on probation for another three years.

Kooda pled guilty last year to assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering as the trigger man in an attempted shooting of Chicago rapper Chief Keef in New York in June 2018. During the trial, court documents revealed that Tekashi allegedly offered Kooda — real name Kintea McKenzie — $20,000 to shoot Keef outside the Times Square W Hotel. Kooda reportedly settled for just half of that. Tekashi implicated himself in the shooting by

The friends met for dinner at a local grill, according to the affidavit, where Gilliard had a glass of Merlot. Rind drank a Diet Coke. After the meal, the men drove to Rind’s apartment, where he showed Gilliard the two firearms.

As Hollywood TV shows returns to shooting, challenges abound

To watch scripted television in recent weeks is to believe Hollywood has steamrolled through the coronavirus pandemic. Fall shows, it would seem, are chronicling the grim interruptions to Americans’ lives without suffering any of their own.

But the up-to-the-minute plotlines gild what insiders say has been a very tumultuous time. Covid-19 and its restrictions have been taking a heavy toll on scripted television, forcing many productions to pause, budgets to rise, episode counts to be slashed and even some shows to be canceled outright. Much like college football, an attempted projection of normalcy conceals the chaos beneath.

“Every one of our shows in production has been touched in some way by quarantine,” said creator Greg Berlanti, who has nearly 20 active series across broadcast networks and streaming, including “Riverdale” on the CW, “You” on Netflix and this week’s “The Flight Attendant” on HBO Max. “You have to commend everyone who’s

‘Possessor’ star Tuppence Middleton on shooting 2020’s weirdest movie sex scene (exclusive)

Watch: Trailer for sci-fi thriller Possessor



Tuppence Middleton who is smiling and looking at the camera


Tuppence Middleton says director Brandon Cronenberg made her feel “totally secure” while shooting the strangest sex scene of the year for Possessor.

The film follows Andrea Riseborough’s assassin Tasya Vos, who carries out her kills by taking over the bodies of other people — in this case Christopher Abbott’s Colin.

Colin is dating Ava (Middleton) and it is her who’s the target of Vos’s plot, with the real prize control of Ava’s father’s (Sean Bean) company.

While possessing Colin’s body, Vos has sex with Ava in a psychedelic scene that Middleton describes to Yahoo Movies UK as “pretty abstract”.
