Hard at work preparing for the release of his Olympus EP, JC Flores has been keeping his fanbase happy with the release of several remixes to popular hits. The newest track to get the Flores makeover is Kid Ink‘s “Be Real” which features Detroit rapper Dej Loaf.
“I took a bit of the Dj Mustard, Nic Nac sounds and created my own version to it, by fusing West Coast, Texas Trill, Hip Hop, Reggaeton, and Dembow. I bring in a couple of surprise melodies that you may recognize as they are all made in the same key…”JC Flores


Miami Beach Police Officer Cleared In Graffiti Artist’s Taser Death

Prosecutors say that the officer in question committed no wrong doing in the 18 year old’s death and the court agrees

Officer Jorge Mercado was cleared of any criminal wrongdoing in a Florida courthouse yesterday in the Taser death of 18 year old graffiti artist REEFA aka Israel Hernandez-Llach back in 2013.

According to the State Attorney’s office, Florida law gives officers the right to use “any” force, since officer Mercado says that Hernandez-Llach was running towards him. Mercado was on administrative leave following the incident, but is now said to be back on active duty.

According to reports, REEFA was painting on an abandoned McDonald’s in Miami Beach when he was approached by officers on August 6, 2013. Hernandez-Llach was ordered to stop, but ran through alleyways, a building and over a fence before he was apprehended.

Witnesses say that after he was Tasered by the officers, they laughed and gave each other high fives as he lay motionless on the ground where he was pronounced dead.

Jorge Estomba, a spokesman for the artist’s family, said in a statement, “The family will continue the fight to have justice on behalf of their slain son.”

Seven Prison Officials Arrested For El Chapo’s Escape

Seven prison officials have been arrested for El Chapo’s escape and a long web of prison and government corruption is to blame

The Mexico Attorney General’s office issued arrest warrants Friday for seven prison officials who they presume have played a role in Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán‘s notorious escape from the Altiplano prison. They’ve also fired the head of the prison.

The method of escape is by far one of the most sophisticated civil engineering projects seen and obviously required a formidable team of experts, engineers and dedicated construction workers as well as a few people in high places. Nevertheless, some people believe that members of the government themselves were involved in order for “El Chapo” to facilitate such an extravagant escape for the second time.

Writer, Anabel Hernandez, who has extensively researched the Mexican Cartel and its government for her book Narcoland: The Mexican Drug Lords and their Godfathers, agrees. As part of her five-year-long research for her book, Hernandez claims that ex-president Vicente Fox started the war between Mexico’s cartels, telling Sam Clements of Vice that,

In January of 2001, something happened that changed the drug cartel game; the federal government helped El Chapo to get out of jail. So in that moment, the federal government started to protect just one cartel and fight against the others, which is when the war between the cartels started. Since El Chapo’s first release, the government has continued to conspire with the Sinaloa cartel.”

Mexican Drug Czar “El Chapo” Escapes From Prison

Authorities have launched a nationwide manhunt in Mexico for reputed drug kingpin Joaquin Guzman

Drug lord Joaquin Guzman, otherwise known as “El Chapo”, has escaped from Altiplano Federal Prison today in Mexico, according to the National Security Commission of Mexico.

Reportedly, Guzman escaped through a hole in his cell leading to a well lit, ventilated tunnel a kilometer long ,which led El Chapo to his freedom. Guzman was just re-captured last year after escaping from a high-security prison in 2001.

El Chapo is allegedly the head of the Sinaloa Cartel, arguably Mexico’s largest heroin trafficking operation. Guzman is wanted in the Unites States as well on several drug and organized crime charges, but has successfully been able to expand his heroin empire around the globe.

Guzman’s cell in the South central Mexican prison was found empty by guards and issued an APB alert immediately. will follow up on this story as it develops.

Cuba First Country To Stop Mother-To-Newborn Transmission Of AIDS And Syphilis

With advancement in science Cuba has now stopped the transmission of HIV/AIDS and syphilis from mothers to their babies

According to the World Health Organization(WHO) announcement made on Monday, Cuba is the first country in the world to stop the transmission of the HIV/AIDS virus from mother-to-baby as well as the transmission of the STD syphilis from mothers to their newborns. WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan stated,

Eliminating transmission of a virus is one of the greatest public health achievements possible. This is a major victory in our long fight against HIV and sexually transmitted infections, and an important step towards having an AIDS-free generation.”

AIDS is defined in some college medical terminology books as genealogical testing that went awry, but with advancements in tests and treatment scientists now hope to find a cure very soon. A Nigerian professor, Maduike Ezeibe, has produced an anti-viral drug for treating HIV/AIDS called Antivirt, though some have doubts about its authenticity. The professor at Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike (MOUAU) in Abia State, has insisted that his discovered treatment is real and effective.

In the United States, testing and treatment of pregnant women has brought down mother-to-child transmission rates by more than 90 percent. In 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 162 children were infected at birth. 14 percent of Americans with HIV don’t even know it, but with awareness perhaps there will be a cure in this decade. In the mean time, scientists will continue to combat the HIV/AIDS epidemic that has taken the lives of over 39 million people since it was discovered.
