Maino has some explaining to do…
Porn star, Mellanie Monroe says she was punched by Maino outside of a NYC club. The two were parked in a SVU outside of the Griffin when Maino began punching her then allegedly fled the scene. She says she suffered from leg pain after the incident. Maino has not yet been charged and has yet to respond to the claims. Ironically, around the same time last year, the Bed-Stuy rapper was arrested for driving with a suspended license. Apparently October is the month where Maino gets into these situations…let’s hope this isn’t a pattern. We’ll update you as more information becomes available.

It was my first video made with Windows Movie Maker, so please excuse any incongruities in it.
MC Jin, who was formerly on Ruff Ryders and gained fame for being 106 & Park‘s Freestyle Friday champion, returns with his new album XIV:LIV.
The LP revolves around the concept of whether someone’s 15 minutes of fame can really be up. Tracks like “Complicated” featuring Hollis and “Chinese New Year” show that his motivation is far from drained and wants to prove that he’s here to stay. It’s been about 10 years since his Ruff Ryders debut The Rest Is History, so it’ll be interesting to see how XIV:LIV unfolds.

President Barack Obama vowed to stand “side by side” with the Canadian government after shooting incidents rocked the country’s capital on Wednesday.
“It’s very important I think for us to recognize that, when it comes to dealing with terrorist activity, that Canada and the United States have to be entirely in sync,” Obama said, speaking from the Oval Office.
The president cautioned, however, that it’s too early to know what exactly motivated the shootings. Ottawa police have said multiple gunmen may have been involved in the incidents that left a soldier dead and multiple others injured.
“We don’t have enough information yet. So as we understand better exactly what happened, this obviously is something that we’ll make sure to factor in the ongoing efforts we have to counter terrorist attacks in our country. Every single day we have a whole lot of really smart, really dedicated, really hard-working people … who are monitoring risks and making sure we’re that we’re doing everything we need to do to protect the American people,” he said.
Obama also said since he had visited the Canadian parliament, the attack affected him in a personal way.
“I’m very familiar with that area and am reminded how warmly I was received and how wonderful the people there were. So obviously we’re all shaken by it,” he reflected. “But we’re going to do everything we can to make sure that we’re standing side by side with Canada at this difficult time.”
Love her or hate her, Masika Kalysha says she’s here to stay.
The model-actress-singer turned Love And Hip-Hop: Hollywood star has a slew of new projects she’s working on that she’s excited to unveil to the masses. First up: becoming the face of Ace of Diamonds gentlemen’s club in Las Vegas.
On Monday night’s episode of LHHH, Masika took fans behind the scenes of her photo shoot for Ace of Diamonds. Although distance and work for other projects has made it difficult to be hands on with the club, Masika says she’s preparing for a special performance at its grand opening.
“The club opens, I think, December 1,” she said. “I’m going to do a sexy little burlesque performance of my new single. It’s going to be really cute.”
In addition to helping promote Ace of Diamonds, she also mentioned that she’s been in the studio with her LHHH cast mate, Yung Berg and Jeremih, among others. Masika is gearing up for the release of her single “Bad,” to be featured on a still untitled project.
“Its an girls anthem to showcase,” Masika said of her single. “The song is a mix of rock, pop and R&B.”
And if seeing Masika plastered on a billboard and bumping through your speakers isn’t enough, she’s making her way to the big screen as well.
“I just finished working on a film called The Prey with Kevin Grevioux,” she revealed. “It’s an action film so it’s something a little different for me.”
The film also stars Danny Trejo and Nick Chinlund. The Prey is slated to hit theaters in December.
While Masika shot down hopes of the possibility of her own weekly event at Ace of Diamonds, hence #MasikaMondays, she did say that it helps when she wants to connect with her fans on social media. And as for the haters blowing up her mentions, she had this to say: “Get to know me, we’ll be here.”
