The family of the late Notorious B.I.G. has filed another wrongful-death lawsuit against the City of Los Angeles, according to documents obtained by TMZ. The new suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, involves state-related claims and names two ex-police officers as co-defendants. The rapper's mother, two children and widow, singer Faith Evans, are suing for unspecified general, compensatory and punitive damages.
Ghostface Killah is scheduled to headline the third annual "Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival" this summer. The festival, which will take place on 5 days in June, will also feature performances from Consequence, Skillz, and Tanya Morgan. Ghostface will take the stage on the festival's last day (June 23). "Ghost is simply in his own category," said Festival Chair Wes Jackson via a statement. "His track record of hits is over 10 years long. He has rocked with everyone from Beyonce to MF Doom. Who else can say that? His versatility and borderless creativity is exactly what the BHF is all about. As we move park- wide we couldn't ask for a better MC at the top of the bill."
