During her interview with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1, H.E.R. stated that she loves the Caribbean culture and wants to go all-in in celebrating it.
“Honestly I love Caribbean music,” H.E.R. tells Ebro. “I didn’t really have a full appreciation of it until I moved to New York, until I went to the East Coast, and I got into dancehall and I got into some of the more uptempo club records. I literally have been a huge fan of reggae since I was a young kid.”
News of a new reggae album serves as a follows behind H.E.R.’s June release Back Of My Mind which featured contributions from Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Baby, and Yung Bleu. The songstress also announced the return of her now sold-out Lights On Festival in Concord, Calif. The two-day event will feature performances by Erykah Badu, Bryson Tiller, and Keyshia Cole.
ASAP Rocky Charged With Felony Assault With a Firearm in Hollywood Shooting
Back in April, ASAP Rocky was arrested at LAX after returning to the states via a private jet, following his vacation with Rihanna in Barbados. The arrest stemmed from “an argument between two acquaintances” that escalated and resulted in “the suspect firing a handgun at the victim,” according to the LAPD.
This week, details surrounding the incident have been made public and it has now been reported that it was former A$AP Mob member, A$AP Relli, born Terell Ephron, who was the victim in this case. Out on bail, ASAP Rocky, born Rakim Mayers, has now been charged with two counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm. The Harlem native is expected to be arraigned in court on Wednesday, August 17.
“Discharging a gun in a public place is a serious offense that could have ended with tragic consequences not only for the person targeted but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood,” said Dist. Atty. George Gascón. “My office conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a special firearm allegation was warranted.”
