Yung Texxus a.k.a. Mista Green enters the scene, introducing a new level of versatility while rejuvenating a sound the rap game has been missing. Born in 1984 on the 1st day of new beginnings in Killeen, Texas, Yung Texxus was introduced to an eclectic range of music in his own home with a mother who was an aspiring singer and uncle who was in an upcoming rap group during an era where hip hop was premature and never tampered with. He took an immediate liking to being an artist, as his uncle would compose verses for him to recite. This instantaneously ignited Texxus’ passion as he wrote his first rap in the fifth grade. Yung Texxus dropped his 808-heavy trap-music inspired track “Donald Trumpin” off his third installment of his mixtape “Throw Aways III: The Final Chapter.”
There calling this verdict of not guilty OJ #2
Casey Anthony has been found not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. The jury declined to convict her of either first degree murder or manslaughter. Sentencing on the guilty counts will be held on 9 a.m. Thursday. The maximum sentence applicable in this case is four years, but having already served two and a half years behind bars, Casey Anthony stands to serve one and a half years.
As her lies unraveled, it became apparent that Casey Anthony had created a fictional world in which she made up a job at Universal Studios and a dozen people who were friends, co-workers, lovers, babysitters and even Caylee’s playmates.
Jurors watched hours of jailhouse tapes in which Casey Anthony elaborated on her lie about the babysitter, offering extensive details about this fictional nanny.
The defense argued that Caylee drowned in the family pool and her body was found by George Anthony, who then helped dispose of Caylee’s body. The lawyer contended that George Anthony used his experience as a former police detective to deflect any suspicion away from himself and on to his daughter.
An alleged mistress of George Anthony testified that he described Caylee’s disappeareance as an “accident that snowballed out of control.” George Anthony denied having an affair with the woman.
The testimony wasn’t the only thing to shock the courtroom. Verbal sparring between Baez and prosecutor Ashton led to threats by Judge Perry of expulsion from the court and lengthy sidebars.
