Remy Ma was found guilty of attempted murder yesterday and could face 25 years in prison.
One of our law enforcement sources informed us: 'Latina inmates at Rikers were ecstatic about the verdict.'
The beatdown Remy put on Gloria Velez may come back to haunt Remy if she's housed at Rikers.
Gloria Velez is respected in some sectors of the hispanic community and female inmates have always been a large segment of her fanbase.
A Latina inmate looking to make a name for herself may go after Remy in retaliation.'
Remy may be a marked woman from behind bars when she gets locked down and may have to align herself with a black set for protection or she may be put in protective custody for her safety.

Married comedic actor, Mike Epps, has been named in a paternity suit brought by a woman in Georgia who gave birth in December 2007. Randy Kessler, the woman's lawyer, says Epps has refused to submit to a paternity test or provide any support for the child, saying, "We are not asking for the moon, we are just asking him to take a paternity test. Once the tests are completed and paternity is confirmed, hopefully, Mr. Epps will do the right thing and begin to provide for his child." Kessler says he and his client initially wanted to work things out privately, but those efforts have been ignored by Epps and his camp. The paternity suit was filed in early February, and since then, Kessler says he has sent five letters and made a number of phone calls to Epps' lawyers -- and all he got back was silence.

Police say they arrested a Kansas City teenager after her 2-year-old child and two other toddlers ate crack cocaine.
Police say 17-year-old Tasha Cole admitted that she left the children with a friend while she went out to sell drugs earlier this week. Jackson County prosecutors on Thursday charged Cole with four felony counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Court records show that she returned to find the youngsters playing with a plate where she had cut the cocaine. After Cole told relatives what had happened, police said, one of them wanted the children to be taken to a hospital. At first Cole balked, but she took her son to a hospital when he had a seizure.

Mr. Bandana man is due in court today after he was arrested in Jersey last week with some weed, hollow point bullets and an inordinate amount of Jolly Ranchers.
Abraham said he smelled marijuana and saw a green leafy substance on the center console as well as marijuana roaches and Dutch Master and White Owl cigars used to make blunts.
Santana, who was born in Harlem, also had a hand-rolled cigar laced with marijuana in his shoe, cops said.
In the trunk, police said they found 29 hollow-point bullets wrapped in a sock and $19,500 rolled in small bundles and hidden in a plastic bag filled with "hundreds of Jolly Rancher" candies.
Those hollow points could be a problem, but I think he’ll skate on the candies.

Interestingly, Harrelson's best friend was Charles Rodgers, 3rd photo, also a top assassin, who was allegedly in Dallas with Harrelson during JFK's assassination according to conspiracy theorists.
In 1968, Harrelson was hired to kill businessman Sam Degelia. He would serve time in Leavenworth for the murder. After being released, Harrelson’s wife gave birth to a son, Woody, who later achieved fame as an actor on “Cheers.”

Two officers in New South Wales are facing breach of privacy charges after they told 26-year-old Garrick Jacobson, who was being held last September for being suspected of theft, that according to their records his girlfriend was once a man.
The cops reportedly disclosed the information illegally while booking Garrick on suspicion of theft. One cop used a police computer to check out the man's blonde girlfriend, Brigitte Fell (above) and discovered Fell had been born a man!
The cop shouted across the room, "Your girl's a bloke!"
Garrick continued to insist that Fell was female, the officers then showed him a printout that indicated her original sex. One of them blurted out: "See, it's a guy."
Both officers have pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Fell admits she kept her sex-change secret from her boyfriend of only two months.
Brigitte Fell underwent a sex change operation in 1996. She said Jacobson was never told because "he was temperamental enough."
After the cops disclosed her secret, he ended up going to Fell's place to confront her. She says, "He was beating the hell out of me. Then I fell off a balcony."
She said, "My whole face was broken," suffering a concussion, later waking up with blood all over her. My life is ruined."
Fell said only 3-4 people knew. Jacobson, upon returning to the station, said he went to her house "to cut her hair off ... she was a she-man.
Brigitte Fell plans to file a lawsuit against the two cops.

Freddie (New York Freddie) Myers was the top black kingpin in New York during the 70's and early 80's. He would amass a $300 million dollar fortune. He was also known to buy out fur stores (racks of furs at one time). He also wore tailored Italian suits. His clothing bill came to $50,000 per day ($100,000 per day in today's dollars). In his documentary, Myers has photos of himself partying with Stevie Wonder and Muhammad Ali.
In order to move a lot of heroin. Myers used his Italian mob connections. He also flew French chemists to Italy to process raw opium into heroin.
One weekend, he decided to take a trip to Las Vegas to attend a championship fight. He sat down next to a well dressed black man who admired his $200,000 diamond crusted watch. The man inquired about buying the watch but Myers refused. The man would later introduce himself as Frank Matthews.
Frank Matthews was also a legendary drug kingpin in New York and law enforcement considers him one of the smartest kingpins who ever lived. He was also the only Black man involved in the French Connection pipeline.
When they arrived in Las Vegas, they realized they were both in town to see the fight and they were staying at the same hotel.
Matthews' limo transported them to the Sands and Myers was impressed that Matthews had rented two penthouse suites normally reserved for celebrities and high rollers. The suites were named "The Frank Sinatra Suite," and "The Sammy Davis, Jr.," suite.
They kept in touch after they returned to New York. Myers was astounded when he visited Matthews place of operation, "The Ponderosa." Matthews' informed him that his workers moved 85 kilos a day.
In 1972, Frank Matthews jumped bail with $400 million dollars and hasn't been seen since.
Freddie Myers was arrested in 1983 on drug charges and served 24 years. He was released from prison in 2007.

As TMZ first reported last night, The Game finally showed up to Twin Towers to serve his weapons-possession sentence, and we've learned that he'll be a "keep away" while inside, meaning that he'll be segregated from the general population while in the joint.
The rapper (real name: Jayceon Taylor) turned up to turn himself in late Sunday night, accompanied by his uber-lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley, and dozens of his friends and supporters wearing "Free The Game" t-shirts. We're told that he was described as being "his usual self" upon check-in.
The Game is supposed to serve 60 days, but we're told that he might not serve even half that many.
Some folks are telling me that after the incident, Papoose’s DJ (who was with him at the time) was admitted to the hospital, but I have no confirmation on that.
Meanwhile, other insiders have reached out to me to say that they do not agree with some of the details on Thisis50.com, they claim that Fat Joe was never punched in the face, that “the only scratches on Joe are on his hands,” and that he was only with 4 people, not 9. They also insist that Cassidy was not the set-up man for this altercation. According to them, there were a number of artists all gathered on the same floor of the hotel, which was the holding location before the concert. So I’m sure its only a matter of time before other versions of the incident comes out from the many people who were on scene.
But there is one thing that is very clear….the motive. According to witnesses, when Fat Joe confronted Papoose, he said he had a problem with Papoose being on a recent radio show with 50 Cent, where 50 was laughing and making fun of him and his family.
The irony of the situation is that 50 has often been criticized for picking fights with artists just because they’ve worked with his enemies (i.e. beefing with Jada and Joe after they worked with Ja).
But now Papoose is feeling the same heat for appearing alongside 50.

Just when we thought the industry was actually maturing, these fools go off and get into the rumble of the century. Here are three theories I have in regards to this situation....ILL BE BACK! Oh and now I understand why Papoose and Max B had words......
1. Why did Cassidy invite Papoose up to his room for a random "TALK"?
2. While the rumble was taking place, it's kind of convenient how Cassidy and his people weren't touched, thus giving us reason to believe this was a perfectly executed set up.
3. What do Fat Joe and Papoose have to beef about?
On Thursday February 28, 2008 Rapper 50 Cent was hosting New York City Radio and had Invited several rappers to join him on the show including Max B, Papoose and Remy Ma. While 50 Cent was interviewing Max B, Papoose walked into the studio. When Max B went to say whats up to him and give him a pound thats when Papoose told him "put your hand away, what's up with that slick shit you was saying about Kay Slay on the internet?"
Before Max B could reply, Papoose went to approach him, but fortunately 50 Cent was able to get in the middle of the two rappers and seperate them.Papoose when he arrived at the Power 105.1 FM studio and met with M...On Friday Feb 29 in North Corolina Papoose,Cassidy,Fat Joe,Gucci Mane,Yo Gotti,and Fabolous were booked to perform at The Criquet Arena. Before the show could go on, the Main Event happened earlier at The Holiday Inn Hotel in North Carolina, where the rappers had been staying at .
Sources from Cassidy's crew tell us that Cassidy had asked Papoose to come to his room so they could talk. Papoose eventually came to his room and while the two rappers were talking, all of the sudden Fat Joe and 9 Members of his Entourage storm right into Cassidy's room. Fat Joe suddenly starts yelling at Papoose, "You Got A Problem With Me?" and Papoose replied, "No, do you have a problem?" When Fat Joe responds " yeah, I got a problem with you," thats when Papoose swung at Fat Joe, punching him in the face twice.
Before you knew it all hell broke loose. Sources tell us that Fat Joe and his crew rushed the rapper and Hotel security had to seperate the fight before Law Enforcement could get to the Hotel. Sources tells us that they heard Papoose yelling at Joe, "Come on Bitch ass nigga lets take this shit outside give me a fair one. Props to ThisIs50.Com for breaking this story.....Stay tuned for more details!
