Friday rap-up in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• R. Kelly missed his court date on Wednesday because his tour bus was stopped by police in Utah. Now a judge may stop the singer’s tour by putting him in jail as punishment for the Wednesday no-show. “These are extraordinary matters to have these breaks given to you and then nobody shows up,” said the judge. “I don’t know what I am going to do. I have to consider it.” Better consider the potential courthouse protests if the scheduled Friday concert in Chicago is canceled.
• Remy Ma was denied the opportunity to perform at concerts in Europe. A judge refused to return the rapper’s passport. Remy Ma is facing charges of shooting a friend at a New York nightclub. The judge declared, “Given the circumstances and the seriousness of the charges, and the fact that she has pending intimidation charges, I’m not prepared to let the defendant travel out of the country.” Maybe she can replace R. Kelly on Friday in Chicago.
