No Burner With Timmy Turner: Desiigner’s Gun Charges Dropped

Featured Image

Rapper Desiigner has been released from jail after drug and gun charges against him were dropped.

He had been arrested on Thursday night, after police stopped the car he was in and found drugs inside. Police had been tipped to the car after another driver had claimed the rapper pulled a gun on them.

A search of the vehicle didn’t produce any guns. However, numerous drugs reportedly including Oxycontin, methadone and steroids were found.

There were five of them in the car, and all were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of drugs with intent to sell. The Panda rapper was additionally charged with felony criminal possession of a loaded weapon.

Both charges have however now been dropped, and Desiigner is now being arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on three misdemeanor counts of menacing and drug possession.

“There’s nothing here. There’s nothing recovered,” his attorney, Adam Konta, said. “There really is nothing here.”

“They tried to keep me in but when you’re doing right they can’t,” the 19-year old rapper said after posting bail.

“It’s dangerous to say that just because there were four black men in a car they had guns and drugs,” the attorney for Desiigner’s friends, Ian Niles said. “Who that was who reported needs to be figured out.”

However, KSA, during a press parley on his 70th birthday, disclosed that there was nothing between them, adding that the song was just a gimmick to drive home a message for a healthy relationship among the youth back then.

He said, “I didn’t have any crush on Onyeka then. Even before that song, we had recorded some songs together. She was (and still is) just a colleague. She is a good woman. We did that song just for us to teach the young people the essence of having a healthy relationship.

“Haba! How can I take another wife? Is that a curse or are you praying for me? I am not ready for any new wife.”

“It is just by his grace that He has made it possible for me to live up to this age. He alone has given me strength to perform. I love what I do and that is why I can never be tired. I came back from the US and I was told I had to perform somewhere and I went. I am never tired and my age will not slow me down.”

Iheanacho: Scoring In Derby, Dream Come True

Featured Image

Manchester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho has described scoring in the derby as a dream come true.

The young Nigerian scored the second goal after De Bruyne opened the scoring. And just before Ibrahimovic pulled one back for United.

Iheanacho was handed a starting position in the match, due to the suspension of Aguero and he showcased his talent.

“It is a dream come true to play in the Manchester derby and to get a winning goal,” he told Sky Sports. “I’m happy, I’m very happy, for my team, for everyone. They really worked hard to get the victory today.”

Iheanacho slotted home after a shot from De Bruyne rebounded off the post and straight to his feet, and he admitted there was some good fortune involved.

“It was about being in the right place at the right time,” he added. “I didn’t expect the shot, I didn’t expect it to hit the post and come back, but I’m happy to be in the right place and to score.”

“Brook Can Be World Number One”

Featured Image

According to Eddie Hearn, should Kell Brook emerge victorious against Gennady Golovkin, he should be considered the best in the world.

The British boxer went up two weight divisions to challenge the undefeated Kazakh for middleweight glory.

Since the retirement of Mayweather, Golovkin who is undefeated in 35 fights and has 32KOs is considered the best pound-for-pound boxer.

Brook is also yet to suffer a defeat in 36 fights and his promoter Hearn hopes ‘The Special One’ can become a worldwide star by toppling ‘GGG’.

“That’s why he’s taking this fight. The gamble of becoming the No 1 fighter in world, pound-for-pound,” Hearn told Sky Sports.

“Golovkin is the No 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Some agree some don’t. The majority agree. Therefore if Kell beats him, he’s No 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

“That’s why we’re taking this fight, to make that step, to become that global star. To become a global star, you’ve got to take risks.

“You can’t just wake-up in the morning, beat some bloke who is 26-5 and become the greatest fighter in the world. You’ve got to go and do something out of the ordinary and that is beating Gennady Golovkin.”

“I don’t think there is a welterweight that would beat Kell Brook. But now he’s moving up to middleweight where I think he will be a better fighter.

“If he wins, it’s huge. That’s what the gamble is, that’s what you’re playing for. You’re not playing for a good win, you’re playing to be the best and cement your legacy in the sport.”

Christensen: Chelsea Decides My Future

Featured Image

On loan Chelsea man Andreas Christensen has conceded his future will be decided by his parent club.

The Denmark international joined Borussia Mochengladbach on a two-year loan, but could return to Chelsea if asked to.

The Bundesliga club are keen to sign the 20-year-old at the end of the season on a permanent deal.

But the 20-year-old realises his future lies in the Stamford Bridge outfit’s hands.

“I do not know yet whether my future lies at Chelsea or Borussia Monchengladbach,” Christensen told Rheinischen Post.

“Maybe the decision is not mine to make. Perhaps I do not even have a choice. There is nothing I can do if Chelsea want me to return.

“But if I get to make the decision myself, I will take my time and take everything into consideration. It is not an easy decision.

“I like both clubs and do not want to compare them.”

Christensen has a contract with Chelsea until June 2020.

“He has a real football brain and understands football. You know really, it’s in his genes. I see him in the future at this club of course. He will spend his life in football, he is a football man.

US Open: Djokovic And Wawrinka To Play In Final

Featured Image

Novak Djokovic will play Stanislas Wawrinka in the final of the US Open, after they both won their semifinals.

The world number one beat world number ten, Frenchman Gael Monfils 6-3 6-2 3-6 6-2, in New York.

Stifling humidity was still a factor as Wawrinka beat Japan’s sixth seed Kei Nishikori 4-6 7-5 6-4 6-2.

“It’s really humid, really hot. I knew it would be tough,” said Wawrinka.

Djokovic, 29, had treatment on both shoulders during the first semi-final, while Monfils could barely move at times as conditions took their toll.

“Humid,” is how the Serb described it. “I think that’s all we were thinking about and feeling.”

Monfils robustly rejected the notion that he did not give his all, saying: “I think I tried my best.”

Djokovic will attempt to win his third US Open and 13th Grand Slam title on Sunday, while Wawrinka – who beat Djokovic in last year’s French Open final – is going for a third major victory and first at Flushing Meadows.
