Sinead OConnor slapped with lawsuit after alleging Arsenio Hall gave drugs to Prince
May 5, 2016 3:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound
While a criminal investigation into Princes death is still underway, Sinéad OConnor believes she knows where the Purple One was allegedly getting his drugs all these years.
Earlier this week, O’Connor accused Arsenio Hall of being Prince’s supplier. “Two words for the DEA investigating where prince got his drugs over the decades. Arsenio Hall (AKA Princes and Eddie Murphys b*tch),” she wrote in a Facebook post which has since been deleted.
She also accused the late-night host and comedian of drugging her in the past. “Anyone imagining prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land. Arsenio Ive reported you to the Carver County Sherrifs [sic] office. Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie murphys house. You best get tidying your man cave.”
Representatives for Hall quickly refuted O’Connor’s claims, calling them “absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd.” Now, it’s been revealed that Hall is filing a $5 million lawsuit against the singer.
As TMZ notes, in the suit Hall denies all of O’Connor’s accusations. He also describes her as “well known for her media antics and for seeking attention through inflammatory Facebook posts.”
For what it’s worth, O’Connor last made headlines after posting a suicide note to her Facebook page.

Dear White People is coming to Netflix as an original series
May 5, 2016 3:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound
If theres one flaw in writer/director Justin Simiens 2014 feature film Dear White People, it’s that it tries to squeeze too much story into its runtime. As our own Justin Gerber wrote in his review of the film, One cant help but think that Dear White People may have worked better as a miniseries.” Even so, Simiens film managed to expose issues of race and culture that are often swept under the rug and left us with ample fodder for discussion.
Those who want that discussion to continue will be pleased to hear that Netflix has given a series order to Dear White People. As Variety reports, Simien will write all 10 half-hour episodes of the show and direct the series premiere, which is expected to land on Netflix in 2017.
Simien has already expressed excitement for exploring his films themes through the medium of television. “During the films release, I had the pleasure to speak with hundreds of students and faculty across a variety of college campuses dealing with these very issues in real time, he said in a statement. Im so grateful to have this platform — not only to give a voice to those too often unheard in our culture, but to also tell great stories from new points of views.
The series will be produced by Lionsgate Television (Lionsgates Roadside Attractions released the original film). As the companys executive vice president of television, Chris Selak, noted, Our original film with Roadsid...

How a concert series in Torontos East End became a cookbook
May 5, 2016 2:27pm | Chart Attack
Feast in the East celebrates its 5 year anniversary at Anchored Social Club on Friday, May 6 (featuring Horse Lords, New Fries, Mimico, Carl Didur, and JFM) and Saturday, May 7 (with Matrox, Blonde Elvis, Germaphobes, and Castle If).
There are many physical and psychological barriers in cities preventing people from moving around as freely as they could. Torontos Don River is a bit of both. Theres no reason why people cant cross it there are more than enough bridges for that but many who live to its east know exactly just how difficult it can be to convince people from the west to make that trek, especially for a show.
With their Feast in the East concert series, Tad Michalak, Neil Rankin, and Katie Jensen have found success by using both music and food to do the coaxing for them. What started out as a house party became a monthly event, and is now a cookbook, the launch of which coincides with the concert series fifth anniversary.
The cookbook features recipes, visuals, and a two-tape compilation, all courtesy of the host of chefs, artists and bands who have been involved with one of the fifty-plus Feasts. Reaching such a milestone is as much a credit to Michalak, Rankin, and Jensen as it is to the community they've built. (You can find sample recipes and exclusive premieres of songs from Hooded Fang and ZONES from the compilation within this article.)
Skepta drops Lyrics featuring Novelist
May 5, 2016 2:25pm | Fact Magazine
We’re only hours away from Konnichiwa, and Skepta has teased another new track.
Dropped on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, ‘Lyrics’ features the Lewisham don himself Novelist and boasts some refreshingly skeletal production, with the kind of blips and low end thump that should have heads remembering grime’s first wave.
It’s yet another tantalizing taste of Skepta’s long-awaited Konnichiwa, which is set to drop tomorrow, Friday May 6. It comes at a time when Skepta seems poised to break the glass ceiling into another level of stardom, and with Drake and Kanye West in his court, he’s certainly got the right push.
Let’s hope that Konnichiwa, when it drops, gives Skepta the propulsion he needs to not only push his own name to the next level, but grime in general.
Listen to ‘Lyrics’ below, and look out for ‘Detox’ (feat. BBK) on Julie Adenuga’s Beats 1 show later this evening.
The post Skepta drops ‘Lyrics’ featuring Novelist appeared first on FACT Magazine: Music News, New Music..
