T.I. & MTV Sued for Showing Dead Body on TV


It looks like the "Road to Redemption" had a few bumps in it. Rap star T.I. (real name Clifford Harris Jr.) and MTV are both being sued by the family of Joseph Williams for including his deceased person in an episode of T.I.'s reality TV show about turning around the lives of seven troubled teens. T.I. used the late Mr. Williams as an example of a "hustler" who had taken the wrong path, taking one of the teenagers on "Road to Redemption" to see where a life of wrong-doing could lead. The elder Mr. Williams says that the family never gave MTV or anyone else permission to use their son's body on the reality show, they disapprove of his portrayal as a "hustler," the funeral home should have cremated him long before T.I. could make an example out of him, and that they are entitled to compensation for emotional damages. The episode in question aired over two years ago. Our thanks to VladTV and Ology for confirming the details of this story. We'll let you know if T.I. settles with the family or decides to fight it out in civil court.

Rain f/ Money May, Nathan NFG - "On Fire"

Hailing from South West London Rain has been putting it down since 2005. This talented 25 year old has already been tipped to do big things by a number of urban scene's tastemakers; Rain has previously been supported by DJ's such as Ras Kwame and DJ279 as well as having receiving radio-play from BBC Radio One, BBC 1Xtra, Choice FM and Kiss FM. Rain has also worked with some Hip-Hop's best producers including multi platinum producer Chad B and Tha Bizness who have worked with 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, T Pain and Drake. He has released a total of nine mixtapes and has a strong live performance and has performed at many events around the UK and overseas including performances in Tenerife, Barbados and the USA. Now in 2011 Rain gears up for his new mixtape 'London To QB' which is a collaboration project with Infamous Mobb's Ty Nitty and is set for release spring 2011. Before that though we have this excellent new single which sees Rain team up with R&B sensation Nathan who you may remember from his massive 2006 hit 'Come Into My Room' as well as fellow South London rapper Mayday. This track has massive crossover potential and just a taste of what's to come in the forthcoming weeks as we get ready for Rain's 'London To QB' release!!!

 

Please support and give this track the attention it deserves!
