Tyler The Creator Explains His UK Ban on Twitter



So yesterday we covered a story (see it here) about the California Rapper/Producer Tyler The Creator & how he has been banned from the United Kingdom, but today he confirmed on Twitter why this is happening. See Below.


Tyler's manager stated in a Tumblr post that the reason he's been banned is because of the controversial lyrics from his 2009 album bastard & his 2011 Goblin. The letter states "his music encourages violence & intolerance of homosexuality" as well as " fosters hatred with views that seek to provoke others to terrorist attacks"

The part about all of this that is so baffling to the world is the fact Tyler has been to the UK multiple times as stated by is manager Christian Clancy.

“..tyler has been to the UK over 20x in the last 5 years without incident (shows, in stores, meet and greets). we rented out a movie theatre last month in London for a private showing of napoleon dynamite for his fans. literally last month.”

If your a successful actor, musician, rapper or have anything to do with Hollywood & the media pretty sure you've either been sued, had issues with taxes (see my previous article ) or have embarrassed yourself into retirement.













Today is just another day for some shit like this to turn up in the headlines, the hit show "Empire" is being sued....AGAIN!!! what is this like the 5th time...Jon-Astor White is suing executive producers Danny Strong & Lee Daniels this was his idea & the show was supposed to be called "King Solomon" staring some huge names including Kanye West, Alicia Keys, John Goodman among many others.

Jon-Astor is looking at half a billion dollars ( $500 million ) for the show that he claims to be his own. White said the show would have been "the style and elegance of 'Dynasty' meets 'The Sopranos' with a sprinkling od 'The Godfather'.

Stay tuned for more people to sue "Empire" I'm sure this wont be the last.

T.I Owe's U.S Government Approximately 4.5 Million In Federal Taxes


It's not the first time we have seen celebrities avoid paying their taxes I mean lets not forget Martha Stewart who was forced to pay back $220,000 in back taxes before she was arrested for insider trading & of course we cant forget about Wesley Snipes who owed the U.S government a whopping 17 million in back taxes that landed him in jail on a 3 year sentence.

In most recent news it has been reported that Atlanta rapper T.I has been avoiding the U.S government like Snipes & Stewart only he fell in between the two figures mentioned above. T.I.P has 2 separate liens files on his behalf by the IRS. The first lien for an amount of $1,397,283.47 in unpaid taxes for 2012  & the second for the amount of $3,173,476.39 for unpaid personal taxes during 2013.

Seeing news like such makes me wonder how someone that according to Daily Mail Online  has a net worth of  $215 million cant pay his taxes, I mean don't they have accountants to handle this shit? Regardless of the circumstances the Atlanta rapper owns restaurants, clothing lines as well as he makes music to top it off. He's obviously a great rapper but someone in his team isn't doing their job as a result T.I isn't looking like the greatest business man these days.

MINI PLANETS OF TORONTO

So recently I discovered how to turn my panoramic photos I took with my Iphone 5s & Iphone 6 cameras & turned them into mini planet photo's as see below.
















Each photo was rendered into such a way with Adobe Photoshop of course, the first one above is my neighbourhood in Scarborough (Gerrard East).

If you follow my blog you know I enjoy taking photo's of Urban Toronto the art & structures around the city. In one of my previous articles I posted "Hard To Believe I Took These With My Iphone 5s" I explained how I will forever think highly of Apple because of the camera quality on their portable devices & their image processing software's just seem much better on Mac.

In the article I also posted some very amazing shots I took down at the bottom of the Scarborough Bluffs with my Iphone 5s, one of them was a picture of Lake Ontario that turned out absolutely amazing.(see the article here)

Like any photographer I took many pictures that I did not post here, they could have been on my Instagram @realfirstclass but tons of them don't make it up because I focus primarily on the  art of HipHop & my music. But I decided to take the panoramic pic below & morph it into what looks to me like a small Planet Earth!

The above photo is the Panoramic photo taken by the Iphone 5s & Below is the Mini Planet Photoshop edit in Colour also in Black & White, both photo's are different edit's though can you tell the difference?
