Lecrae Partners with Love Beyond Walls To Plant Portable Wash Stations Around Atlanta Metro Area.

We here at Stuff Fly People Like are dedicated to bringing you all the good news in the midst of this Global pandemic called The Corona Virus.

And this is FLY! Multi Grammy Award-winning platinum selling artist, Lecrae (and friend of the Fly People) has partnered with Love Beyond Walls to plant portable hand washing stations around the Atlanta Metro Area, with the purpose of ensuring that homeless and displaced people have the option of cleaning their hands in response to Coronavirus (Covid19).

How Fly Is That?

Before the announcement, Stuff Fly People Like caught up with Lecrae to get the scoop, and this is what he had to say:

Stuff Fly People Like: “We heard that you are doing some great things in the city of Atlanta to help with this pandemic, can you tell us a little more about that?”

Lecrae: “Yes, my good friend Terence Lester runs a non profit called, Love Beyond Walls. I’ve worked with him for years to get involved to help people experiencing homelessness, to hear their stories and humanize them. And I’m taking my staff and my artist over to the Dignity Museum, that he created, just to help us wrap our minds around how to help people experiencing homelessness. During the pandemic, a lot of us are buying up the hand sanitizers, and we have the space at home to wash our hands, and we are not thinking about people who don’t have the means to wash their hands. People who are at risk, because they have tuberculosis or bronchitis from the conditions that they live in. So who is taking care of these folks? So Terrence and I got together, and I asked him, what can I do? And he said, I want to get some portable sinks to put out all over the city. And I asked him the cost, he told me, and my answer was, say no more, let’s do it. So I brought some portable sinks, and I partnered up with him, and we are going to put them throughout the city. So that people experiencing homelessness can have the opportunity to sanitize on a consistent basis.”

We can’t express how commendable this is!

The initiative kicked off at 10am Today, Thursday March 19th at Love Beyond Wall’s Center located at 3270 East Main Street, College Park, GA 30337.

Lecrae will join the Love Beyond Walls team at 10am to begin assembling the sinks after which they will be filled with water, loaded on trucks, and distributed to key locations frequented by the homeless in the Atlanta Metro Area.

Please spread the word!

Bishop Eddie Long Dies At The Age Of 63

It has been officially announced and confirmed that Bishop Eddie Long, head of Georgia-based megachurch has passed away at the age of 63. The church where Eddie presided, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church along with his wife First Lady Elder Vanessa Long confirmed his death as he was battling an aggressive form of cancer.

A statement first received by Atlanta Journal-Constitution said:

“New Birth Missionary Baptist Church celebrates the life and legacy of Bishop Eddie L. Long who is now spiritually healed and home with the Lord. Bishop Long, Senior Pastor of New Birth, transitioned from this life early Sunday morning after a gallant private fight with an aggressive form of cancer. As a man of God with unyielding faith, Bishop Long maintained his commitment to our Heavenly Father as he proclaimed that cancer would not kill his faith nor his spirit. First Lady Elder Vanessa Long, Bishop Long’s wife of 27 years offered the following. ‘I am confident through my belief in God that my husband is now resting in a better place. Although his transition leaves a void for those of us who loved him dearly, we can celebrate and be happy for him, knowing he’s at peace.’”

Rumors of his illness had been going on for a number of months and just recently Long attended one of his services on Oct. 9, 2016, after just coming out of the hospital, and spoke to his church advising that he was healed. This was just in time for his Pastoral Anniversary Service. He then later has a healing service for those currently in physical pain.

Close friends and loved ones have been deeply saddened by Eddie Long’s passing:

The Donald Trump Curse Starts: The Obama’s Dog Bites White House Guest

The Obama‘s are leaving the White House and the First Black Family’s dog wants no parts of strangers visiting the home. One of the Portuguese Water Dogs named Sunny was approached by an 18-year-old family friend and was bitten in the face as she attempted to kiss the dog.

TMZ reports:

We’re told the incident occurred Monday when the 18-year-old was visiting the White House. Sources connected to the girl tell us she went to pet and kiss Sunny, and the dog bit her on the face.

Sunny — a female Portuguese Water Dog — left a nasty gash under the girl’s eye. We’re told the Obamas’ family physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, checked her out and decided she needed stitches.

She’s gonna be okay, but we’re told she’ll likely have a small scar … which upset her. 

The bite is out of character for the breed, which typically is not aggressive in family situations. The Obamas have 2 Portuguese Water Dogs — 8-year-old Bo has the title,”First Dog.”

We reached out to the White House. No comment on the incident.

We’re glad she’s ok but let’s this be a lesson that you just can’t approach a dog when they’re not familiar with you.

But We Blame Trump at this point. Just sayin…

Soulja Mayweather aka Soulja Boy Home Was Burglarized Amidst Training Mode

As Soulja Boy is in training mode and actively busy on social media promoting the so-called fight with Chris Brown it seems that his house was burglarized. We wonder if Mayweather will train him to fight the burglars as well…

Image (3) Blankstare.gif for post 109767

TMZ reports:

Law enforcement sources tell us a man busted into Soulja’s Hollywood Hills home early Tuesday morning. After busting the front door down the crook nabbed $10k in cash and $12k in jewelry.

We’re told SB wasn’t home at the time of the burglary … but his house is wired with surveillance cameras, one of which captured the suspect’s image.

As recently reported, Soulja and Brown will be taking their frustrations to the boxing ring in Dubai. Chris is currently being trained by Mike Tyson.

The Game‘s manager, Wack 100 recently spoke on the fight with TMZ and says that Floyd and 50 Cent have to do with the alleged fight and that it is being completely controlled by West Coast gangs.

Thoughts?

The Word: Kanye West Cancels Second Leg of ‘Saint Pablo Tour’

Kanye West has officially cancelled the second leg of his Saint Pablo Tour.

Dates had yet to be announced along and no tickets had been sold at the time of the cancellation.

The news comes after Yeezy cancelled the remaining dates of the first leg following his hospitalization for dehydration, exhaustion, paranoia, and depression a few weeks back.

The tour was likely heading across the pond making stops in the U.K., France, and Germany. The “All of the Lights” artist need not fret cutting his tour short especially as his finances are concerned. Ye has an insurance policy in place which covers any profits lost or expenses as a result of cancellations due to health-related issues.

Good news for West who is currently recovering from his hospitalization and is said to be working on a new album. He’ll be able to focus on his recovery and spending time with his family.

Get well soon Kanye, looking forward to hearing the new music!

The Word: LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers Teammates Won’t Be Resting Their Heads In Trump Hotels

LeBron James the outspoken leader of the 2015-2016 NBA champions Cleveland Cavaliers won’t be gracing any Trump Hotels in the foreseeable future.

Bron and some of his Cavalier teammates will be breaking league protocol by refusing to stay in the Trump SoHo when the Cavs visit New York City to take on the Knicks. The move should come as no surprise, LeBron this past election was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton and gave her a ringing endorsement.

NY Mag reported:

“Cavaliers general manager David Griffin said on Monday that the team would find alternative accommodation for any players who don’t want to stay at a Trump property and that plans have been made for any “group that wants to be elsewhere to be together elsewhere.”

The Cavaliers are not the first team who vouched to avoid Trump properties in response to Trump being elected President. The Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks and Milwaukee Bucks also stated they will not be staying at any Trump Hotels.

The Cavaliers also were the last championship team to be honored by President Barack Obama at the White House this year.

The boycott is not only focusing on Trump’s property but athletes are already discussing if they would even visit the White House if invited by Trump. Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert has already stated if the Cavaliers repeat as champions (I hope they do) he will not be visiting the White House to meet with Trump.

Trump’s presidency is definitely filling the air with uncertainty sprinkled with a heavy dose of divisiveness as we don’t know what this man will do once he sets foot in the White House. One thing that is pretty certain folks ain’t here for Trump and the King is leading that parade.

The Word: Desiigner Has Been Cleared of All Charges Related Drug Arrest!

Desiigner got some great news regarding his drug arrest earlier this year. TMZ reports that the final charge for drug possession will go away clearing the Brooklyn rapper of all charges.

Sources close to the case revealed to TMZ that the D.A. moved to seal the case and dismiss the final charge. The move is considered to be “face-saving” one for authorities who already dropped other charges from the September arrest.

During that arrest Desiigner was initially charged with menacing, possession of a loaded weapon and intent to sell. It was later revealed that investigators didn’t find a weapon and the drugs turned out to be steroids more than likely prescribed to the rapper.

Desiigner himself wasn’t in court, but his two attorneys Ian Nyles and Stacy Richman were on his behalf and told TMZ “we’re happy he’s been exonerated, and happy with the investigation from the D.A.”.

Now that he is completely in the clear, the rapper can now completely focus on his still young music career.

Kevin Gates Will Spend 6 Months In Jail For Kicking A Fan

Kevin Gates can’t seem to get away from a few punches of negativity.

This time around, the Baton Rouge, Louisiana rapper got into a little altercation back in 2015 with a fan while performing in a Florida club. Planted in the front row, the alleged victim tugged on Gates’ short and he instantly reacted with quick kick, which in our opinion landed quite abruptly, but we will let you be the judge below.

Kevin’s wife, Dreka Gates took her feelings to social media saying:

According to TMZ, The judge sentenced him to 180 days in Polk County Jail, and he was immediately taken into custody.

Hopefully, Gates will learn from this incident and to not launch his foot at anyone for something that could have been avoided.

The Daily Word: RZA Opens Up About The Bizarre Incident That Took Place Between Azealia Banks and Russell Crowe

The RZA has finally broken his silence about the bizarre incident we reported on involving controversial rapper Azealia Banks and famed actor Russell Crowe. It’s not looking too good for Azealia once again who claimed she had receipts about what happened that night. RZA opens up about the night after Banks says she felt RZA “betrayed her” by not sticking up for her that night and doesn’t want to be associated with him “personally and professionally”.

GIF--Nope-No-way-Nah-no-Peter-Dinklage-Game-of-Thrones-GIF

To bring you up to speed if you don’t know exactly what happened, Azealia accused Russell Crowe of assaulting her by spitting on her and calling her the n-word. This all happened at a private dinner party Russell held at his Beverly Hills hotel suite. Multiple witnesses including the RZA backed Crowe insisting that Azealia was the one acting “erratic” and was the one slinging the n-word around before Crowe deposited her outside of his suite.

Today we get even more details from that night as the RZA opened up to his fans about the night and his dealings with the troubled rapper. In the lengthy Facebook post RZA talks about trying to help Azealia get back on her feet. He details the many times he has come to Azealia’s aid landing her a role in his new film Coco, securing her a record deal and even helping her out financially.

Azealia was brought to my attention while I was casting my next Film Coco. I heard the rumors of her problems in the industry but disregarded them with the rationality everyone is innocent until proven guilty. So my producer and I fought for her to be in the film and we succeeded. During the filming process things ran smooth and she delivered. Thus my only experience with her had been professional. The only brief social moment was at the wrap party. Therefore “I HAD NO REAL EXPERIENCE OF HER SOCIAL BEHAVIOR…”

A few weeks ago Azealia hit me up for some economic help and bong I gave a helping hand.
She then followed up asking me to help her get a record deal.
I called a friend and bong a record deal was on the table. The only clause my buddy gave was I be the filter because the word is “she is volatile”.
I called her and told her a deal was in the workings. She immediately, prematurely went to social media and claimed she signed a deal with RZA Yet no deal was signed.

He then follows that up with the full details of what happened that night in Crowe’s hotel suite pretty much corroborating with the other witnesses that night.

Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room she becomes loud and obnoxious.
There was nothing funny about her behavior. I felt a little embarrassed because she was my guest.
Still verbal abuse can be tolerated but when it goes physical…
Azealia threaten to cut a girl in the face with a glass, then actually grabs a glass and physically attacks for no logical reason.
