"8ruce Wayne" depicts 8rooklyn 8atman taking on Harley Queens as they initiate an unprovoked attack against Brooklyn's dark knight. The video was directed by 8rooklyn 8atman. @Controversenyc shot and edited the video that was filmed on location in the Don Cesar Hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Don Cesar Hotel was formerly a Veterans Affairs hospital and made the perfect backdrop for Harley Queens to run wild in the makeshift Arkham Asylum. "I want people to be entertained," said 8rooklyn 8atman. He continues "I'm not a typical artist and people may feel my get-up is a gimmick but it isn't. After being released from prison I wanted to be someone that my sons can look up to. That's why I started going by Brooklyn Batman. It allowed me to engage with my 4-year old son when I came home in a fun and positive way. I hope fans take away from this that I am Brooklyn Batman and my job is to motivate people through music and share how I overcame my own many struggles. Growing up in foster care, not being wanted, getting wrapped up in the system were all obstacles to me. However, a seed was planted and it grew out of concrete for me. It's time I plant some seeds to the fans and other people who might just need to hear something good. As I say in my verse on Bruce Wayne, 'if you are what you think then think you’re the shit!'" The Ultraviolet Pirates Tour headlines recording artist Riff Raff of Houston, Texas and Grammy-winning DJ, "The Mixtape King," Queens-born DJ Whoo Kid. JodyHighRoller Entertainment announced Brooklyn Batman's addition to the tour from August 14 to August 29, 2021, following an impressive showing during the United States southeast region leg of the tour.

Following the release of his book "Seeds in the Concrete," it sold over 5,000 copies. Brooklyn Batman also sells the books on tour as part of his merch. The Brooklyn-rapper performs with his band the Frontline Avengers. The Frontline Avengers include Qu3st Qu3st, Reck Savage, and RockstarODD and they act as an anchor to Brooklyn Batman's high-energy performances. Imurje Inc is the label. Brooklyn Batman is managed by One Brikk Worldwide.

The GlobeRunners - "The Cypher"

Recently GlobeRunners Entertainment, CEO and founder Hollyhood Bugz spoke to the press about his rising movement in New York City that’s quickly growing it's buzz in the streets of Brooklyn. Originally designed as a way to get kids off the streets, Hollyhood Bugz' new rap collective the GlobeRunners embodies Hip-Hop’s original spirit; get the kids off the streets and give them something constructive to do. Accompanied by Backdoor Movements CEO, BDM Smit, the GlobeRunners are pointed in the right direction away from crime and the confinements of jail, with a renewed focus on pushing the newest track, “The Cypher.” “I started making music when I was probably like 13 or 14 years old in a juvenile jail as a way to express myself. I kept seeing the kids on my block needing direction, so I’m just trying to creative platform to put the kids on my block in a position where they can be doing something constructive and be successful,” Hollyhood Bugz explained. “I’ve taken a lot of trips around the world and the kids see that. I feel like its something that the world should hear though too. After I went to jail and stuff like that, the fact that I became a success out here despite the troubled beginnings shows the youth they can do the same thing too. So this is way deeper than rap.” Inspired by the philanthropic nature of Jay-Z, Hollyhood Bugz draws inspiration from his fellow Brooklyn native that made it out and found ways to transform his community. “I’m inspired by Jay-Z’s music because he’s from Brooklyn in the projects and for him to be where he is now, that inspires me overall with my circumstances. So I just want to create this way for the youth to find their path,” Hollyhood Bugz said. Featuring a constantly developing roster at GlobeRunners Ent., Hollyhood Bugz has signed a host of talented and hungry artists including Willzbugatti, BiggsGTO, MaseratiMickey, Stellyhundo, Teddybucks and ShanPane. With ages ranging from 18-34, this Brooklyn based group collective puts one foot forward with,”The Cypher" and cohesive sound that goes far beyond the music. “We have about 7 artists on the first song, it’s just called The Cypher. We put them on a fire beat and we just showing our lyrical progression. WillzBugatti and BiggsGTO, they have a track out right now called Heartless and it’s kind of a melodic feel for the younger generation. Then we got an EP out called Take Money and it has 6 songs on there. Everything is on the EP, we just trying to get the best out of the music we are pushing.”

Gang Leader Sentenced To 20 Years


Devon “D-Bloc” Rodney, a former leader of the violent Brooklyn street gang “Six Tre Outlaw Gangsta Disciples Folk Nation,” was sentenced to 20 years in prison at the federal courthouse in Brooklyn, New York. It’s the FBI’s latest success in its campaign against America’s violent street gangs. A campaign with no end in sight.

As leader of the Six Tre set of the Folk Nation, a nationwide gang originating from Chicago that is now active in several U.S. cities and prisons, Rodney was eager to make his presence felt and establish dominance over the area’s criminal activity. Like most young gang leaders, though, he wasn’t exactly running a professional operation. It was violent and in your face.

They also targeted individual robbery victims, whom they lured to secluded areas in Brooklyn, via Internet advertisements on Craigslist, and then robbed at gunpoint. Empowered by the successful robberies, Rodney began ordering his underlings to attack rivals and enemies. The gang was eventually charged with four murders, three attempted murders, and two assaults. But as with most street gang violence, it often ended up hurting innocents more than the intended targets.

Spike Lee Rants Off

+Spike Lee has been heard on audio ranting off in Brooklyn. Speaking Tuesday night in Brooklyn, blocks away from his company headquarters and his father’s apartment, Spike Lee went off on how the neighborhood has changed.

The filmmaker, wearing a Knicks beanie, orange socks, blue Nikes, and “Defend Brooklyn” hoodie, was at Pratt Institute for a lecture in honor of African American History Month, surrounded by locals, when he was nearly asked a question about “the other side” of the gentrification debate.

“Let me just kill you right now,” Lee interrupted, “because there was some bullshit article in the New York Times saying ‘the good of gentrification.’” “I don’t believe that,” said Lee. And for the next seven minutes he explained, with passion, humor, and a fair amount of f-words.

Bobby Shmurda Pleads Not Guilty

Up-and-coming rapper Bobby Shmurda appeared in a New York City court on Thursday (Dec. 18) to face charges he moonlighted as a gun-toting member of a street gang that was behind several shootings, one fatal, during turf wars over drug trafficking.

Shmurda (real name: Ackquille Pollard) pleaded not guilty and was ordered held on $2 million bail at a hearing in state Supreme Court in Manhattan.

Bobby Shmurda Arrested After Long-Term NYPD Investigation

The Brooklyn-born Pollard is best known for the hit song “Hot Boy.” He also put out a music video that popularized a dance craze called the “Shmoney dance,” and reportedly signed a lucrative record deal.

His attorney, Howard Greenberg, said his client had been falsely accused.

“Does it make sense that he would resort to committing crimes when he has the world in the palm of his hand?” the lawyer said outside court. “It’s ridiculous.”

Police arrested Pollard on conspiracy, reckless endangerment and gun possession on Wednesday after he left a recording studio near Radio City Music Hall in midtown Manhattan. Police found two handguns and a small amount of crack cocaine in a car in which he was riding, authorities said.

Anatomy of a Hit: How Bobby Shmurda’s ‘Hot Boy’ Came to Life

An indictment naming Pollard charges more than 15 defendants with a variety of crimes including murder, attempted murder, assault and drug dealing. Police seized 21 guns during the investigation, 10 of them while making arrests on Wednesday.

The court papers allege that Pollard fired a gun toward a crowd of people outside a barber shop in Brooklyn earlier this year. They also say he was present last year during a confrontation between rival drug gangs outside a Brooklyn courthouse where shots were fired.

The evidence includes several recorded phone conversations, including some between Pollard and gang members serving time on Rikers Island, the indictment says. The gang used code words, referring to firearms as “tone” and “socks,” narcotics as “crills,” and shootings as “sun tan,” it says.

During a conversation on April 28, Pollard bragged, “I am two socks Bobby right now,” the indictment says.

A “Hot Boy” video posted on YouTube in August has been viewed tens of millions of times, and Pollard performed the song for a national television audience this month on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“My music is straight facts,” Pollard recently told New York magazine. “There are a lot of gangsters in my ‘hood.”

Pollard’s criminal history included two arrests for gun and drug possession, authorities said.

Wrongfully Imprisoned Man

A Brooklyn man who was freed from jail in April after spending 25 years in prison for a crime he did not commit plans to sue New York City for $162 million. Jonathan Fleming, 51, was sentenced to 25 years to life for the 1989 murder of Darryl Rush. Fleming, who insisted that he was in Orlando, Fla., at the time, was released after Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson‘s Conviction Review Unit learned that police coerced false testimony out of a crack addict in exchange for a deal.

By filing what’s called a notice of claim, Jonathan Fleming has made a first move toward suing the city over case that put him in prison for nearly 25 years. He was freed and his conviction dismissed in April after the Brooklyn district attorney’s office said it now agrees he had a valid alibi. According to the Associated Press, the city comptroller’s office offered no comment on the matter as of yesterday.
