A Los Angeles federal judge has ordered Nicki Minaj‘s husband, Kenneth Petty, to serve “up to” 120 days on home detention for “making threatening remarks toward a specific individual while in the company of someone with a criminal record.”
The specific individual in question is Offset, Cardi B’s husband. Last week, Kenneth Petty and his entourage posted numerous videos on Instagram Stories in which they made threats against the former Migos rapper and expressed intentions to locate and harm him. Petty exclaimed, “You n**gas are nervous, man. You boys are p**sy for real. You b**ches are nervous.” He then posed the question, “What’s up, man? What’s going on? What are y’all trying to do?”
Further into the video, Petty continued, “We’re out here to talk, right? Let’s talk, but you know we ain’t talking, though. P**sy a n**ga, I don’t know who y’all think y’all are playing with.”
On the morning of September 16th, Offset took to his Instagram Story to publicly address the group of men, referring to them as “broke.” In his video, he said, “I am getting off the jet. What are these n**gas talking about?” He then concluded with, “These n**gas are broke. We’re hopping off jets, b**ch. These n**gas are standing outside.”
Meghann Cunnif, who posted the filing, stated that the probation officer and judge did not require an external report or complaint to take action in this matter. She also noted that Offset and Cardi B appeared unfazed by the threats, with Offset responding to the situation by laughing about it in a video as he disembarked from a jet. The rapper was en route to see Deion Sanders at a Colorado game.

Kodak Black Arrested For Cocaine Possession & Evidence Tampering
On Thursday (Dec. 7), Kodak Black faced legal troubles once again as he was apprehended for cocaine possession and evidence tampering in Plantation, Florida. NBC Miami reported that the Florida native was taken into custody at Broward County Jail, with additional charges of improperly parking or stopping a vehicle and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.
The incident unfolded when an officer noticed Black’s Bentley SUV parked in a roadway. Upon approaching, the officer discovered Black asleep in the driver’s seat, detecting a strong odor of burnt cannabis coming from the vehicle. Upon further inspection, the officer found a cup in the door smelling of alcohol, as well as “cannabis wrapping paper and suspect cannabis residue” in the center console. After instructing Black to exit the SUV, he nonchalantly mentioned there was only some weed inside.
A while later, the officer observed white powder falling from Black, leading to suspicion of attempting to discard illegal narcotics. The report detailed, “The powder was visible due to the strong scene lights of my patrol vehicle.” Approaching Black, the officer noticed his mouth was “full of white powder,” leading to this arrest. White rock-like substances on the ground were identified as Percocet by Black, but subsequent testing confirmed it to be cocaine.
Black’s recent arrest comes on the heels of his July 2022 arrest, where he faced charges of drug trafficking. Authorities discovered 31 pills, alleged to be oxycodone, in his possession, along with over $70,000 in cash.
Tsu Surf Sentenced to Five Years in Prison and $15,000 Fine After Pleading Guilty to RICO Conspiracy and Weapons Charges
Rahjon Cox, known as Tsu Surf, has been sentenced to five years in prison, three years of supervised release, and fined $15,000 by U.S. District Judge Susan D. Wigenton following his October 2022 federal RICO indictment, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office District of New Jersey.
The charges included one count of racketeering conspiracy and one count of possession of firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon. Additionally, the 32-year-old was accused of active involvement in the Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips sect, particularly with the Silverbacc Gorillas (SBG).
Initially, the stakes were even higher, with Surf confronting the possibility of a 30-year prison term. The racketeering conspiracy charge alone carried a maximum sentence of 20 years, and the felon in possession of a weapon charge could lead to an additional 10 years behind bars. Both charges also carried a fine of up to $250,000. However, in a pivotal moment, the DISPARU rapper altered his plea to guilty in April 2023, acknowledging his role in the racketeering conspiracy and admitting to possessing firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon.
The legal shift unfolded during a virtual courtroom session on Thursday, April 27, as Cox pleaded guilty to two counts outlined in the superseding indictment—specifically, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) conspiracy and possession of firearms and ammunition by a convicted felon.

Diddy Steps Down As Chairman of REVOLT
Sean Combs, widely known as Diddy, has decided to step down from his role as Chairman of REVOLT following accusations of sexual assault by three women. The decision was communicated through an official statement posted on REVOLT’s Instagram page, affirming a commitment to their mission of creating meaningful content for the culture and amplifying the voices of Black people.
“Sean Combs has stepped down from his position as chairman of Revolt,” the statement reads. “While Mr. Combs has previously had no operational or day-to-day role in the business, this decision helps to ensure that Revolt remains steadfastly focused on our mission to create meaningful content for the culture and amplify the voices of all Black people throughout this country and the African diaspora.”
This announcement follows legal action initiated by Cassie, a former Bad Boy artist and Diddy’s ex-girlfriend. Cassie, born Cassandra Ventura, brought forth allegations of control, rape, and prolonged physical abuse spanning over a decade against Diddy (born Sean Combs) on Thursday, Nov. 18. Remarkably, within a swift 24-hour period, the two parties have managed to reach a settlement.
In a statement, Ventura remarked, “I have opted for an amicable resolution, securing terms that provide me with a measure of control. I extend my gratitude to my family, fans, and legal team for their unwavering support.”
Diddy, in response to the amicable resolution, expressed, “I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.”
Regrettably, this resolution was shortly followed by accusations from Joi Dickerson-Neal, who accused Diddy of sexual assault and ‘revenge porn’ within a mere 24 hours of settling with Cassie. The complaint details allegations that Combs “drugged, sexually assaulted, and abused” Joi, and fell victim to “revenge porn” orchestrated and disseminated by the rapper.
Adding to the complexity of the situation, a third lawsuit, filed by a Jane Doe, alleges that Diddy and R&B singer Aaron Hall took turns raping her and her friends at Hall’s apartment sometime between 1990 and 1991. A representative for Combs vehemently dismissed this lawsuit as “fabricated claims.”
