  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater

Rap artist arraigned on assault charges in NY

NEW YORK – Rapper Busta Rhymes was arraigned yesterday on an assault charge after he was reportedly accused of attacking a man for spitting on his car.

The New York Police Department released few details about the arrest, saying only that the incident occurred Aug. 12. Rhymes was arraigned on a charge of third-degree assault and was released on his own recognizance, said Barbara Thompson, spokeswoman for the Manhattan district attorney’s office. He is due back in court Oct. 24.

A lawyer for Rhymes, Scott Leemon, said the charge should have merited only a desk appearance ticket.

“This is payback by the NYPD,” he said.

Police said the rapper didn’t qualify for a desk appearance ticket because of the seriousness of the charge.

Police have wanted to interview Rhymes since the February shooting death of one of his bodyguards, Israel Ramirez.

Ramirez, 29, was killed outside a Brooklyn studio where Rhymes was recording a music video.

The performer and another bodyguard were sued the following month by a fan who says the two men beat him after he asked for the rapper’s autograph.

Police arrested Rhymes Saturday evening after he performed at the AmsterJam Music Festival on Randalls Island. The New York Post said police believe Rhymes beat a man who spat on his car near Gramercy Park.
