Tiny's Hands Get Her Man In Trouble

Rapper T.I. got in serious trouble with prison officials after guards caught the famous inmate taking things too far during a visit from the wife.

TMZ reports and T.I.'s wife Tiny (a.k.a. Tameka Cottle) confirms that they were in a room alone together at the Arkansas State Prison when she made like MJ. (Performed a hand job)
According to state prison guidelines, inmates are allowed to kiss and embrace at the beginning and at the end of a visit as well as hold hands. However, "The inmate’s hands must remain in plain view of staff at all times." Same goes for the visitors. 
Tiny confirmed that as a result of their violation of the rules T.I. was sent to a  "Special Housing Unit" consisting of more security and less freedom. Tiny is waiting to here if and when she will be able to visit him soon.

Proven Innocent After 30 years

A Texas man declared innocent Tuesday after 30 years in prison had at least two chances to make parole and be set free if only he would admit he was a sex offender. But Cornelius Dupree Jr. refused to do so, doggedly maintaining his innocence in a 1979 rape and robbery, in the process serving more time for a crime he didn't commit than any other Texas inmate exonerated by DNA evidence. "Whatever your truth is, you have to stick with it," Dupree, 51, said Tuesday, minutes after a Dallas judge overturned his conviction. Nationally, only two others exonerated by DNA evidence spent more time in prison, according to the Innocence Project, a New York legal center that specializes in wrongful conviction cases and represented Dupree. James Bain was wrongly imprisoned for 35 years in Florida, and Lawrence McKinney spent more than 31 years in a Tennessee prison. Dupree was sentenced to 75 years in prison in 1980 for the rape and robbery of a 26-year-old Dallas woman a year earlier. H…

100 Years of Achievement Kappa Alpha Psi!!

Kappa Alpha Psi is the First African American Fraternity founded on a "White Collegiate/University Campus" and the Second African American Greek Letter Fraternity for Collegiate men. The fraternity was founded as Kappa Alpha Nu on the night of January 5, 1911 by ten African-American college students.

The decision upon the name Kappa Alpha Nu may have been to honor the Alpha Kappa Nu club which began in 1903 on the Indiana University campus, but there were too few registrants to assure continuing organization.

Some believe the Greek letters Kappa Alpha Nu were chosen as a tribute to Alpha Kappa Nu, but the name became an ethnic slur among racist factions. Founder Elder Watson Diggs, while observing a young initiate compete in a track meet, overheard fans referring to the member as a "Kappa Alpha Nig". After this occurrence a campaign to rename the fraternity ensued. The resolution to rename the group was adopted in December 1914 and the fraternity stated, "The …
