At least seven bullet holes pierced the front and rear driver-side windows.An employee at the coffee shop said Pickens looked lifeless in the driver seat when cops arrived at the scene.The police came and they opened up the door," said Bibekanada Das, who was working in the kitchen when the shooting occurred.
"All you could see was the guy laid out in the seat."
Emergency responders rushed both victims to Jamaica Hospital, where Pickens died and the younger man was listed in critical but stable condition, police said.Pickens performed hours before the fatal shooting at Club Red Wolf in Brooklyn, his Twitter page indicated.In 2009, Pickens released his first solo album, "Hurry Up & Die Vol. 1: Get Ya Casket On."

The legendary B. B. King, whose world-weary voice and wailing guitar lifted him from the cotton fields of Mississippi to a global stage and the apex of American blues, died Thursday in Las Vegas. He was 89.
His death was reported early Friday by The Associated Press, citing his lawyer, Brent Bryson, and by CNN, citing his daughter, Patty King.
Mr. King married country blues to big-city rhythms and created a sound instantly recognizable to millions: a stinging guitar with a shimmering vibrato, notes that coiled and leapt like an animal, and a voice that groaned and bent with the weight of lust, longing and lost love.
“I wanted to connect my guitar to human emotions,” Mr. King said in his autobiography, “Blues All Around Me” (1996), written with David Ritz.
Your legacy lives on through your music. R.I.P to B.B. King Blue icon .

Angie Stone's daughter Diamond , definitely has a f*ucked up grill after the fight that got Angie arrested, but the reason her teeth fell out might be because she failed to get a root canal some years ago, instead of a hit from her mother.
Angie admitted to cops she did indeed hit Diamond with a metal jewelry stand in self defense. Diamond says the stand knocked out two of her teeth.
People close to Angie say , the teeth fell out because they'd been rotting out of Diamond's mouth long before the fight. In fact, Diamond agree's to her teeth being rotten but says -- "It don't matter if my teeth were rotten or not ... I could have gotten a root canal, but she finished the job." Reported TMZ.
Diamond also disputes her mother's claim she was acting in self defense ,saying that the fight started with both women yelling,and says Angie grabbed the stand to threaten her. She claims it only got physical when she threatened to call cops.Diamond admits wrestling her mother to ground at that point, and says her brother had to break up the scrap.
Angie was arrested and charged here is her mug shot .

Suge Knight drove to a Tam's Burgers in Compton where Dr. Dre was filming footage connected with the NWA movie, "Straight Outta Compton." Suge had been kicked out of another location shoot 20 minutes earlier that same night, and he claims he went to the burger joint to make peace with Dre.
Suge claims he was not trying to run either man over but instead was trying to escape out of fear he would be killed. Suge's lawyer claims Bone and Terry both had guns. Check out the video. As Bone lays on the ground you clearly see another man walk up, remove something from Bone and put it in his waistband.
Suge claims that multiple people in the crowd, including Terry Carter,were threatening to shoot him.
Seems like every time he gets into a situation he has an excuse for his reckless behavior. Will it fly this time in court?

Chris Brown is the proud father of a 9-month-old baby girl ... HipHopSwagga has learned.
The baby's mother is a 31-year-old former model named Nia -- who we're told has known Chris for several years. Seen in the picture below.
People connected to both Nia and Chris tell us they are on very good terms ,however they're not together romantically. We're told 25-year-old Chris is happy about being a father.
It does not appear there is a formal child support order in place ,and we do not know the nature of any informal terms of support as of yet.
We did learn that Nia named the kid Royalty. What we don't know ... whether she consulted Chris before inking the birth certificate. Chris and Nia got it on summer of 2013 and she gave birth 9 months ago. As we reported, Karrueche was blindsided ... she had no idea until minutes before It was blasted all over the Internet .
As for Chris' involvement ,we're told he calls Nia regularly and now says he wants to openly participate in raising the baby. Nia and Royalty live in Texas, and Chris says he'll gladly fly there regularly to parent her.
