Another idiot that doesn't know enough not to get behind the wheel and drive with no licence? There has to be a virus going around among celebrities and singers that saps the brain cells that tell them not to drive drunk or while suspended. Either that or they're just plain stupid. We read about at least one a week.
Truly sad!

Here we go again with this free advertisement for the idiots when they come to NY. It's always a ticket and notice in the paper. In future, anytime I should happen to come upon one of these scenes, I will yell loudly He's got a gun and I will point to the jackass rapper or entertainer and hope that one of the cops accidentally shoot them or go upside their head with a gun butt. It's a guarantee that the publicists will stop this 'Go to NYC and get stopped by the police game'.

What an idiot. He should have beat a woman senseless because then he could have appeared on Dancing with the Stars. They support domestic violence.

He has no talent. Ten years into the future, he will have 10 baby moma's, 10 drug arrests, be broke, and living with some fat, white trash girl. Why do you even report on these guys?

If you don't know who he is then WHY are you commenting????? So many of you a**holes are RACIST, plain and simple. You think you're so funny hiding behind your keyboards when none of you would say this bulls**t to a black person's face. Black does not equal thug. Nor does being a rapper make you stupid or untalented. Just because you don't know who Jim Jones is doesn't mean he's not successful in your lily white eyes. He's obvoiusly doing better than ALL of us combined because he's not sitting at a desk working 8-5 talking s**t about other folks. Some of you really need to get a life and a bit of humanity wouldn't hurt either. Dumba**es......
