Atlanta Rapper Body Found – Bambino Gold, Edward Reeves And Kendrick Stokes

The bodies of Atlanta rapper, Bambino Gold (Edward Reeves) and his cousin, Kendrick Stokes, were found in Alabama.  Bambino was only 29-years-old and Kendrick was 30.  Violence is ruining the hip-hop industry.  Hip-hop recently passed rock as the most popular genre in the United States but artists continue to die at early ages.




Edward Reeves was born on May 5, 1988 in Montgomery, AL.  He was one of six children, raised by his single mother, Aidea Harris.  She described to reporters that it is stressful to think that someone has done something this cruel to her child and she couldn’t be there to protect him.

Bambino started hustling before he was a teenager.  Growing up, he loved hip-hop and eventually moved to Atlanta.  His life changed after he was seen on a Hood Affairs DVD free styling for Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka.

In 2014, Bambino released his mixtape, Trappin’ Made It Happen.  The project featured numerous artists including Lil Boosie and production by Big Boi.  
Bambino lived a difficult life.  In the following video he discusses being shot in the face and he offers some useful advice.

Katherine Ross Ridenhour – Facebook, Instagram, Husband

Katherine Ross Ridenhour is the 23-year-old high school teacher who was arrested for having a sexual relationship with a student.  The Charlotte Observer reports that Ridenhour had a consensual relationship with a 17-year-old student at Cox Mill High School in North Carolina.  Scroll down to see pics from Katherine’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.




Like Hunter Day, another teacher who was recently arrested for sexual misconduct, Katherine taught science.  Unlike Day, Ridenhour did not cheat on her husband because she isn’t married.  Ridenhour graduated from Liberty University in 2016 and was hired by Cox High School in August of the same year.  She was the school’s cheerleading coach and science teacher.

Researchers are blaming the educator sexual misconduct epidemic on access.  We live in a connected world where students and teachers have access to social media at all times thanks to their mobile devices.  Social media networks like Snapchat and Instagram enable educators to communicate with students at all times.

Teachers Katherine’s age are Millennials who are just as tech savvy as the students they teach.  While social media can be used in innovative ways to help students learn, academia is not prepared for its dangers therefore it should be banned from schools.

Anika/Boo Boo Kitty

Some chill pills. Seriously. And maybe a copy of Machiavelli’s The Prince, so she has a better sense of political maneuvering, assuming that your real-life Anika also employs the same sloppy tactics.  Anika is played by Grace Byers.  She just released the book, I Am Enough, a great gift for your favorite Boo Boo Kitty fan.

Porsha

Amazon

Cat toys for her new office pet and ear plugs for when Cookie, or, his or her boss yells at them at work. Perhaps throw in some resume paper so they can get a new job.  Porsha loves bright lipstick just as much as she loves Cookie.  Buy your favorite Empire fan Taraji P. Henson’s Mac Viva Glam lipstick.

Becky

Amazon

More respect for being a dutiful assistant! Especially if you know a Becky who has a boss like Andre, who doesn’t exactly respect her.  Becky is played by Gabourey Sidibe and she recently released the book, This Is Just My Face: Try Not To Stare.  Buy it for your favorite Empire fan.

Tiana

Amazon

Pepper spray if it’s legal in your area, or maybe just some self-defense lessons so your Tiana friend never has to experience what actual Tiana experience in the lobby of Lyon Dynasty.  Buy your favorite Empire fan “Drip Drop” because the song never gets old!

Thirsty Rawlings

Amazon

What do you get the man who has all the gadgets in the world? Maybe just an Amazon gift card and see what crazy thing he digs up on that website.  Thirsty is played by Andre Royo aka Bubbles from The Wire.  If your favorite Empire fan isn’t familiar with The Wire buy them the complete series.

Lucious Lyon

Amazon

For the Lucious in your life, I’d say money in any form would be the ideal gift — cash, checks, gift cards, you name it. But if you feel like getting creative, a strategy game like Risk, Settlers of Catan, or Pandemic might be up his or her alley, too

Henson introduced the world to Cookie Lyon in Empire‘s first season.  Henson is responsible for a substantial amount of the show’s success.  Can you believe that she’s been an underpaid actress for most of her career?

Hakeem Lyon

The youngest Lyon son enjoys the finer things in life. Fine booze, killer threads, and actual spotlight will do the trick for the Hakeem in your life.  Cookie Lyon is Hakeem’s mother on the series but his real mother, Andria Mayberry recently released a book.  Buy it for your favorite Hakeem Lyon fan.

Jamal Lyon

Amazon

For the soulful singer-songwriter, the Jamal in your life would probably enjoy an lined old-school music notebook. Based on Jamal’s new-found love of art, a blank canvas and some paints may stimulate his or her imagination. And if the Jamal in your life also falls in love with photographers, perhaps a new DSLR camera is on their Christmas list.  Jamal is played by Jussie Smollett.  Buy his first movie, The Skinny for your favorite Empire fan.

Andre Lyon

Amazon

Your Andre is a complicated, but spiritual and intelligent person. A snazzy day planner for 2016 could be the perfect gift, as well as spiritual book from the inspirational section of Amazon.  Andre is played by Trai Byers.  His wife, Grace Byers recently released the book I Am Enough.  Buy it for your favorite member of #TeamBooBooKitty.
