It's a story almost too odd to already be cliche: Hammond, Indiana police literally pulled the plug on a holographic Chief Keef performance. It's the second time in as many weeks that such a Keef show has been shut down, after a similar appearance was previously shut down in Chicago.

Performing as a hologram is somewhat necessary for Chief Keef in the Midwest, due to several outstanding arrest warrants. The performance shutdowns were allegedly based on safety fears.

50 Cent recently filed for bankruptcy in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Hartford, Connecticut. More specifically, he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

However, 50 Cent is downplaying the significance of the filing as simply a smart business decision to reorganize his financial affairs.

Rihanna seems to have stalkers everywhere. Last year, a New York City Judge called Kevin McGlynn a "ticking time bomb who is wholly fixated on [Rihanna]" after he staked her New York apartment and sent threatening letters.

Have no fear! Snoop Dogg is coming to the rescue! Well, not really. However, he is investing millions of dollars in a weed delivery service aimed at making access to marijuana safer and easier.
