Cold Ca$e could be spending his life in prison. He and his family are making music instead 

As Thomas Sipes describes it, he’s lived a “hellacious” life. It was only a few years ago that Sipes, better known as East Coast rapper Cold Ca$e, found himself staring down 99 years in prison. He faced a third felony charge in California, a state where a “third strike” can mean life behind bars.“During that whole time it was like a transition time for me,” says Sipes. “I was trying to mature as a person and a father and I was trying to get out of the whole hustle game, get out of selling drugs and get away from street life.

Versace Sued By Employees

A former employee at a Pleasanton, California Versace store has filed a lawsuit accusing the high-end retailer of discrimination, not only against him, but towards its Black customers. The suit alleges that during his time as a clerk with the company, 23-year-old Christopher Sampiro was not afforded rest periods and was wrongfully terminated without having received payment for time worked. Sampiro also claims the store carried out a policy of having staff alert co-workers when a Black person entered the establishment by passing mention of it through a secret code.

According to Sampiro the experience began soon after he was hired. In the courts documents he claims to have been informed of the "D410 Code" during a new-employee training. Versace employees are naturally aware of the term, D410, as it is the code used for black clothing. But Sampiro says that while mentoring him on policies and procedures, a manager [who he doesn't name in the suit], told him the code was synonymous for Black customers before encouraging Sampiro to casually warn co-workers of a "D410" when a Black person entered the store. In response to the managers suggestion, Sampiro claims to have shared that he was himself in-fact, part African American. From that point on Sampiro says he was treated differently.

Within two weeks of the alleged D410 incident occurring, Sampiro was fired because he didn't "understand luxury," the lawsuit claims. Sampiro objects to the reason for his termination, saying that management refused him legitimate training following the uncomfortable encounter. Versace denies Sampiro's allegations and has requested that the Alameda County Superior Court dismiss the case. The case will be revisited during a March 21 status conference.

Antibiotics Burn Teen Inside Out

A California teen is in intensive care after she took a friend’s antibiotic and wound up with an ailment that is burning her body from the inside-out. Yaasmeen Castanada, 19, is fighting for her life in the burn unit of the University of California Irvine Medical Center after a diagnosis with a life-threatening drug reaction called Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.

On Thanksgiving, the sophomore at California State University, Los Angeles, and mother of a 4-month-old baby was coming down with cold symptoms and had a sore throat, so she took an antibiotic offered to her by a friend, Corona said on the web page for a medical fundraising campaign for Yaasmeen.

As the night went on, the teen’s eyes and throat began to burn, her eyes turned red and she was rushed to the hospital, according to her mother. Her body was covered with gigantic blisters. On Dec. 5, she underwent surgery on the top portion of her body, and hospital staff members have scraped the skin on her body to encourage new growth.

The syndrome is a rare and extreme reaction to medication or an infection, according to the Mayo Clinic. It can begin with flu-like symptoms, but results in the top layer of skin dying and shedding. Corona advises that people make sure they do not take others’ medications and also have an awareness about their own allergies.

TOPE (@itsTOPE) - "Again & Again"

Portland Producer and Rapper TOPE, born Anthony Anderson, has been known in some circles as one of Underground Hip Hop's best-kept secrets for some time now. As an up and coming artist, TOPE was best known for his prolific output as a solo rapper and also founding member of the groups Living Proof and TxE.

In early 2014 things started to move for TOPE with cosigns from Cody Chestnutt for his instrumental work and love from the Queen, Erykah Badu herself, for his Take Your Time music video. The release of TOPE's album BROKEBOYSYNDROME marked cosigns from XXL, 2Dopeboyz, The Source and many more.

The sky seemed to be the limit for TOPE as he packed up his bags and moved to California landing in Oakland and eventually moving to LA, then back to Oakland. A 28-city tour followed with TOPE leaking singles here and there to go along with show dates and tours. As time started to tick away the Portland music scene continued to grow and TOPE's career in California seem to have hit a wall. Still managing to land production credits for Slum Village, Gift Of Gab of Blackalicious, and Skyzoo - TOPE's solo music had all but disappeared.

3YRD (@iamlouvis @dontswetthisguy @MrBmo3) - "Yodel"

Who is 3YRD? If you asked who 3YRD is and what kind of music they create, you may get some different answers. Although the majority of their songs stay within the hip hop realm, Louvis, Tone, and Bmo each bring their own unique voices to the table as they try to stretch the boundaries of genres by using uncommon, cultural instruments to help bring their projects into a new-age life. Each project gives different feelings or emotions as they try to reflect the randomness of day to day life. 3YRD is a group of dedicated best friends that are fully committed to evolving, growing, and nurturing their music to help provide their fans something they can either sing, jump, dance, or even mosh to. Louvis Daniel Perry (Louvis) was born and raised in a small town in Northern California called Susanville. Growing up he loved music more than anything, while also living two lives being a sports superstar. Daniel was drafted out of High School from the 2015 MLB draft in the 13th Round by the Toronto Blue Jays. After deciding to go to college instead of signing to the pros, Daniels love for music blossomed into something great. He then met "Tone" in his first year of college who then inspired him to take music more seriously. After years of producing while playing college baseball, music took over Daniels passion for anything else. Meeting Brenden (Monte') was the tipping point for his love of music as they both came together to form something nobody has ever seen or heard. With that tipping point, 3YRD was created. Tone Antonio Woodard was Born in New Smyrna Beach, FL, and later moved and grew up in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Tone grew up around music as the majority of his mother’s side of the family are singers or musicians of some sort. He was shy growing up and took him years to be able to sing in front of others. He began to realize how gifted he indeed was once he began singing in choirs and a cappella groups throughout middle school, high school, and college. Music is one of the very few things that he holds near and dear to his heart. It brings him much joy to be blessed with a gift that allows him to move people with his voice through music. It is what he wants to do for the rest of his life. Tone met his best friend, Daniel Perry (Louvis), in college, where they jammed out every chance they could get not knowing the greatness they would create in the near future. Daniel brought light into Tone’s life at the time. Eventually, he was introduced to the one, and only Brenden Montoya (Bmo) and things only went up from there. Tone is so grateful for the two of them because they push him to be the best artist he can be and inspire him to go beyond his limits and comfort zones. Bmo Bmo is from a small town in Northern California called Loomis. His love for music started at a young age. He began writing songs when he was 8 years old and has been perfecting his craft ever since.

BlizzyBoy LJ (@BlizzyboyLj) - "Dior Weather"

BlizzyBoy LJ gives fans the music video for his song "Dior Weather," which can be found now on all digital streaming providers like Spotify, Apple and Tidal. On the song BlizzyBoy LJ raps about the feeling he had on a recent trip to Miami where he was fully draped in breezy, beach friendly, Chistian Dior clothing. The song's vibe rides the South Beach wave of BlizzyBoy LJ's trip to Miami, Florida, taking listeners on a musical journey to the exotic world of pristine beaches and warm weather. The video is everything a trip to paradise should be and shows palm trees, women in bikinis, the ocean and BlizzyBoy LJ speeding around Miami's Biscayne Bay in a Lamborghini. "It's everything that you're inspired to have when you have nothing. When you have nothing you hustle for vacations and a way out and things like that, so that's basically how the video was done in Miami. My music is flashy and East Coast, so fans can expect sh*t like this from me," BlizzyBoy LJ said. Recording the majority of his material out of Los Angeles, California and getting his mixing and mastering done in Santa Barbara, BlizzyBoy LJ is pooling together his resources for a relentless flow of flashy East Coast inspired music. "There's really no plan, it's just to keep putting out music, wherever it takes me, it takes me. My goal is to be the best me, hopefully the best me gives me the best outcome," he said. Brought up on the East Coast but residing in California, BlizzyBoy LJ has battled past the odds to reach this point in his career. First gaining fame on Twitter and Vine, BlizzyBoy LJ took his rap skills that he started developing at age 16 and combined it with the power of social media to make a career out of going viral with his freestyles.
