Eric Benét Claps Back at JAY-Z on Twitter for “4:44” Diss

JAY-Z’s latest album 4:44 is today’s hottest topic in entertainment news. Fans are loving the personal Tidal/Sprint exclusive, while others are fiercely analyzing it as a response to Beyoncé’s Lemonade.

However, taking a note out of Taylor Swift’s book, there’s one person who would like to be excluded from the narrative.

In the album’s opening track, “Kill Jay-Z,” the rapper admits to cheating on his wife, Beyoncé. Jay compares his situation to musician Eric Benét, who cheated on ex-wife Halle Berry and lost her because of it.

“You almost went Eric Benét / Let the baddest girl in the world get away / I don’t even know what else to say / N*gga, never go Eric Benét.”

Benét married Berry in 2001, but separated of after two years after he was caught cheating on the Oscar-winning actress. Their divorce was finalized in 2005.

Now happily married and a father of two, Benét has responded to Jay’s diss.

Benét admitted to People magazine in 2005 that he was unfaithful to Berry, but that he never had sex with any other woman. He said his brief stint in rehab for sex addiction (at the suggestion of Berry’s mother) was a last-ditch effort to save his marriage.

“We all know I cheated. It was out there. [But] I never did have sexual intercourse with anyone while I was with Halle…

“I’m not a sex addict. I wanted to save my marriage and do anything necessary to do that. I went [to rehab] and heard other people’s stories and realized this is really not my struggle.”

Benét married Manuela Testolini (Prince’s ex-wife) in 2011 and the couple have two daughters.

How to Stream & Listen to JAY-Z’s New “4:44” Album

Hov is officially back!

Hot on the heels of his induction into the songwriter’s hall of fame, JAY-Z has returned with his highly-anticipated 13th studio album 4:44, much to the delight of the internet. But how can you listen to it? What options do you have to stream it online? Keep reading to find out!

According to Tidal.com, the album is a Tidal exclusive, meaning that it is only available to stream via that platform, which is owned by JAY-Z, so as of right now, the easiest way to listen to 4:44 is through Tidal.

But it won’t always be like that. Variety reports that after a week of streaming exclusively on Tidal, the album will eventually be released on other streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music. And, if you’re reading this, you probably want to listen to it not now, but RIGHT now.

If you’re a Tidal member already, then you can just fire up the app and get to listening. But if you’re not, then, sucks to be you, because thanks to Tidal’s new deal with Sprint — which purchased a 33 percent stake in the service earlier this year AND gave them a $75 million budget for exclusives as part of its $200 million investment — only Sprint subscribers are able to sign up for Tidal and obtain access to the album for the time being.

During 4:44‘s promotion, each trailer noted that the new album would only be available via sprint.tidal.com, which means that it’s currently only available to pre-existing subscribers of Tidal and Sprint users. If you don’t have Sprint and failed to subscribe to Tidal before June 26th, then unfortunately, you will NOT be able to stream it through Tidal.

In other words, you can sign up for Tidal and listen to everything in their library EXCEPT for 4:44. So, for those of you who like to try and “game the system” by signing up for a 30-day trial just to cancel on the 30th day, you won’t be able to do this to listen to 4:44.

Go on ahead and try to sign up for an account (which you’ll be able to do), then try to stream 4:44, and you’ll be presented with the following message:

So… the question remains, HOW THE HELL DO I LISTEN TO 4:44?!? Well, if you’re neither a subscriber of Tidal nor Sprint, then you’re in luck! But only for today (Fri, Jun. 30).

For the next 24 hours, fans can stream the album for free via iHeartRadio. As of 12:01 a.m. EST, 4:44 will air in its entirety across iHeartRadio’s 160 Pop, Rhythm and Urban radio stations throughout the country.

The album, along with commentary from the Hip Hop mogul, will continue to play throughout the day on iHeartRadio’s Rhythm and Urban stations until July 1st at midnight. And if iHeartRadio isn’t available in your market (CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT), you can listen to the album via their website, iHeart.com.

“This is a perfect storm of sharing music with fans,” JAY-Z said in a statement. “Sprint allows for and promotes creative freedom. Every artist strives for support of their vision, and I have that in not just a partnership with Sprint but also in iHeart.”

Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said in another statement, “We’re giving customers an incredible opportunity to be among the first to experience [Jay’s] new album 4:44. Our loyal, existing customers, and customers who switch to Sprint, can experience the album exclusively, plus access a complimentary six-month trial of TIDAL HiFi, giving them access to content they can’t get anywhere else.”

4:44, which was produced entirely by No I.D., marks JAY-Z’s first album release since 2013’s Magna Carta Holy Grail. The new album features 10 tracks with appearances by his wife Beyoncé (“Family Feud”), Frank Ocean (“Caught Their Eyes”), Damian Marley (“Bam”), Kim Burrell (“4:44”), The-Dream (“Marcy Me”), his mother Gloria Carter (“Smile”) and even his 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy (“Legacy”).

The 35-minute album also comes with an animated visual directed by JAY-Z and Mark Romanek called “The Story of O.J.”

Check out the full tracklisting for 4:44 below:

1. Kill Jay Z
2. The Story of O.J.
3. Smile (feat. Gloria Carter)
4. Caught Their Eyes (feat. Frank Ocean)
5. 4:44
6. Family Feud
7. Bam (feat. Damian Marley)

From Boy Toys to Swingers Parties, Ladies of Potomac Throws Class Out the Window in RHOP Reunion Trailer

Even though many of us still haven’t recovered from the last one, another Real Housewives reunion is on its way. And based on the trailer that just dropped, the ladies of Potomac left their much-talked about class at home to hash out all the drama from season 2.

Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Potomac was only 12 episodes, but it was jam-packed with drama and shade. Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, Monique Samuels, and Ashley Darby all gathered for a two-part reunion and it doesn’t look like any fences were mended. In fact, some friendships may be worse off than before.

The greatest point of tension seems to be from the mother hens of the group, Karen and Charrisse. The two had an established friendship prior to the show, but now each woman is fighting the be the “Grand Dame of Potomac.” Things get real nasty when marriages and infidelity comes up.

Karen: “You’ve been dating three men and it don’t look good in the street of Potomac.”

Charrisse: “People say you have a boyfriend. Do I talk about that? Blue Eyes or whatever his name is?”

Karen: “You’re a f**king liar!”

Charrisse is currently separated and seeking a divorce from NBA/college basketball coach Eddie Jordan. Meanwhile, Karen has been married to, as she calls him, the “Black Bill Gates” Raymond Huger for 20 years. However, many of the ladies wondered if the couple was secretly having financial issues this season.

Ashley, whose marriage is definitely on the rocks, even accuses Charrisse of throwing swinger parties: “I did hear you used to have some interesting parties Charisse. And apparently it didn’t stay platonic.”

Ugh! Not another sex dungeon controversy?!?

Other highlights from the trailer include: Gizelle and Monique continuing to trade cheap shots at each other, Robyn shutting down Ashley for meddling in her unconventional relationship with live-in-ex-husband Juan Dixon, Juan attempting to explain cheating rumors, and Ashley making an announcement about her marriage.

The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 finale airs July 2nd. Part one of the juicy reunion airs July 9th on Bravo.

Police Find Venus Williams at Fault for Fatal Car Crash

Tennis champion Venus Williams has been found at fault of a car crash that ultimately lead to a 78-year-old’s death.

On Thursday (Jun. 29), Palm Beach Gardens, Florida police announced that Venus was at fault of a June 9th car accident that sent a 78-year-old man to ICU after suffering a severe head trauma. The man died 14 days later. Police have concluded Venus was “at fault for violating the right of way of [the other driver].”

Linda Barson, the victim’s wife and driver of the vehicle, suffered broken bones and other injuries.

The accident occurred at a major intersection in Palm Beach Gardens on June 9th. According to the police report, Venus darted into the intersection to beat a changing light, but was left exposed due to a traffic backup. The driver of the other vehicle stated she was unable to stop and T-boned Venus’ SUV. The police report did not indicate how fast Barson was going at the point of impact

TMZ obtained the police report and posted a diagram of the accident.

Through her attorney, Malcolm Cunningham, Venus expressed her condolences to the family and gave more insight into the tragic matter. The statement reads:

“Ms. Williams entered the intersection on a green light. The police report estimates that Ms. Williams was traveling at 5 mph when Mrs. Barson crashed into her. Authorities did not issue Ms. Williams with any citations or traffic violations.

“This is an unfortunate accident and Venus expresses her deepest condolences to the family who lost a loved one.”

It is currently unclear if the 7-time Grand Slam champion will face any charges or citations. Police say it does not appear she was under the influence or distracted by an electronic device at the time of the accident.

Lamar Odom Discusses 2015 Coma & Sobriety With Wendy Williams, Reveals He No Longer Speaks to the Kardashians

Lamar Odom is opening up about his life since his 2015 coma. The former NBA champion discussed how he’s coping with sobriety and revealed to Wendy Williams he no longer speaks with the Kardashians.

In a Wendy Williams interview that aired Tuesday (Jun. 28), Odom said he is no longer doing drugs, but admitted he does continue to consume alcohol. He says battling addiction is a slow process, but focusing on his relationship with his children motivates him to remain sober.

“I’m working hard on rebuilding my relationship with them. I lost a lot of time with them from being high, so I’m trying to work on getting that time back, reestablishing those relationships, especially with my son.”

He reflected on the events leading to his coma in 2015. “I think that was God just trying to talk to me and get me to stop doing whatever I was doing,” he told Williams.

Despite a toxicology report that stated he had cocaine in his system at the time of the incident, Odom maintains that he did not do drugs before falling into a coma. He emphatically denied the report’s results when the host brought it up. “OK, but I didn’t,” he said matter-of-factly.

Taking an extended pause, Williams proceeded with the interview by discussing his recovery once waking up after his four-day coma.

He also says he didn’t have sex with the two women that were also in his room and bed at the Nevada brothel.

Lamar’s ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, and her famous family was also a prominent topic of discussion during the 16-minute interview. Even though he was a successful NBA star when meeting Khloe, he admitted that being involved with her catapulted him to a level of fame he wasn’t used to.

“A million miles per hour, so many things happen that you’re not accustomed to, especially with women. It’s overwhelming a little bit, overwhelming for me and even for the people that were close to me I think it was overwhelming.”

Williams began to ask if he would ever get back together with Khloe, but before she could even get it out, he said “No.”

“I say that with no offense to her—that would be the best for both of us you, know what I’m saying? We have to keep our distance.”

Odom also revealed he hasn’t spoken to Rob Kardashian, someone he used to consider a brother. He hasn’t even men Rob’s infant daughter, Dream. “I guess it’s maybe because I hurt his sister too much,” he assumed. “I would have a problem with me too… I mean if she was my sister.”

In fact, he said it’s been a minute since he’s talked to anyone in the Kardashian family, including Scott Disick, who also struggles with substance abuse. “It is the way it is,” he concluded.

Hassan Jameel: Some Things to Know About Rihanna’s Billionaire Boyfriend

The Nancy Drews of Twitter cracked the case. We now know the identity of the mystery man Rihanna was caught getting hot and heavy with in Spain. And the man is quite the catch!

Here are a few things you need to know about Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel, Rihanna’s new man.

Hassan Jameel is heir to his family’s $1.5 billion fortune and company, Abdul Latif Jameel Domestic, the sole Toyota distributor in Saudi Arabia.

Hassan is the heir to one of the largest car companies in the world. The 29-year-old is currently the deputy president and vice chairman of Abdul Latif Jameel Domestic.

The family business is the largest Toyota distributor in Saudi Arabia. The company is reportedly worth $1.5 billion, and in 2016, Forbes ranked the Jameel family as No. 12 on the list of richest families in the Middle East.

The company has had the exclusive rights to distribute Toyota cars in Saudi Arabia since 1955. Guinness World Records honored the company in 2014 noting that “the name Toyota Corolla has appeared in more cars than any other win an excess of 37 million produced world-wide.”

The Saudi Arabian Prince of Toyota could be aiming to break the Guinness World Record for largest Toyota car parade.

Speaking of Guinness World Records, Hassan is apparently prepared to break another one. In 2013, he accepted the challenge to break the record for largest Toyota car parade.

However, a Guinness rep told TMZ that no applications to break such a record has yet been from Saudia Arabia, Hassan, or Abdul Latif Jameel Domestic. The rep did state that Colombia and South Africa had filed applications, though.

The current record was set in 2015 by Toyota Cyprus with 742 cars. At the time, Abdul Latif Jameel Domestic had also reportedly sold 14.1 million cars dating back to 1966.

Though not a pro soccer player as suspected, Hassan does own Saudi Arabia’s professional soccer league.

When photos of Rihanna’s poolside makeout session with the mystery man first surfaced, it was suggested he was a Spanish soccer player, given Rihanna was vacationing in Spain. While he’s not a pro soccer player, Hassan does have ties to the sport. His family actually owns Saudi Arabia’s soccer league.

Currently comprised of 14 teams, the Saudi Professional League is the premier soccer league in Saudi Arabia. It’s owned by Hassan’s wealthy family and is actually officially known as the Jameel League (for sponsorship reasons).

The 29-year-old businessman was previously linked to Naomi Campbell and is possibly the cause of the current rift between Naomi and Rihanna.

Hassan is no stranger to dating celebrities. He was linked to supermodel Naomi Campbell in 2016. Campbell brought Hassan as her date/plus one to several events.

Though it was never confirmed if they were romantically involved or just friends, the two looked rather comfortable with each other at the British Summer Time Festival in London in July 2016.

This may also explain the sudden rift between Rihanna and Campbell. The two former friends are rarely seen together and recently unfollowed each other on Instagram. Campbell addressed the issue during a March episode of Watch What Happens Live! but gave a shady answer.

“Everything’s fine. Of course it’s fine,” she said. But when host Andy Cohen caught the shade, the model added, “I’m an actress now, Andy.”

Could Hassan be the reason Rihanna and Naomi no longer see it for each other?

The relationship between Rihanna and Hassan is not only hot, but is reportedly getting very serious.

It’s currently unclear when Rihanna and Hassan started dating or how they met. However, a source told The Sun the relationship seems to be getting serious.

“This relationship is the real deal. Rihanna has told friends she’s in love with him and seems completely smitten.”

The two had been keeping their romance private until they were snapped by the pool at their luxury villa in Spain earlier this week. The Sun source added:

“They’ve been spending a lot of time together away from prying eyes and are really serious. They’re really enjoying each other’s company.”

Rihanna and Hasson were also spotted in Ibiza looking very happy.

While she’s had her fun, the singer has not exactly been lucky in finding love. Maybe she’s actually found Mr. Right or at least, Mr. Right Now. The billion-dollar fortune doesn’t hurt either.

Halle Berry Says Her Oscar Win Did Nothing for Hollywood Diversity: “That Moment Really Meant Nothing”

Flashback to 2002: Halle Berry becomes the first black woman to take home the Oscar for Best Actress.

Acknowledging the greats, Dorothy Dandridge, Diahann Carroll, Lena Horne and her peers, Jada Pinkett (Smith), Angela Bassett, and Vivica A. Fox, Berry says “[This moment is for] every nameless, faceless woman of color that now has a chance because this door tonight has been opened.”

Unfortunately, it seems the door is still closed. 15 years after her win, Halle Berry remains the only woman of color to hold the Academy Award for Best Actress and this fact has left her “profoundly hurt” and “saddened.”

The actress opened up to Teen Vogue’s editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth to discuss race and diversity in film. The two briefly talked about her historic Oscar win and because of the lack of progress, not only within the Academy voting process, but also in the industry, Berry says her shining moment was basically meaningless.

“Wow, that moment really meant nothing. It meant nothing. I thought it meant something but I think it meant nothing.”

She was also disheartened by the Oscars “blackout” in 2015, when out of 20 nominations, no person of color was nominated in the acting categories. “It was probably one of my lowest professional moments,” Berry said.

However, the veteran actress is becoming more proactive in making a change. She has conversations with other Academy members to contemplate ways to increase diversity. She also wants to serve as a producer more and try her hand at directing so that she can personally create more opportunities for people of color.

Most importantly, she says more stories centering people of color need to be told.

“Black people, people of color only have a chance to win [an Oscar] based on how much product that we’re allowed to put out. So, that says to me, we need more people of color writing, directing, producing, not just staring.

We have to start telling stories that include us. And if stories don’t include us, we have to start asking ‘Why can’t that be a person of color?’ ‘Why can’t that white male character be a black woman?’ ‘Why can’t it?’ We have to start pushing the envelope and asking these questions.”

While there is clearly more work to do, changes are already starting to be seen. In 2017, Moonlight became the first film featuring an all-black cast to win Best Picture. Mahershala Ali and Viola Davis both took home trophies in the supporting categories and five other actors of color were also nominated.

Rihanna Caught in Hot Poolside Makeout Session With Mystery Man During Vacation in Spain

Rihanna’s got a new man! The singer was caught making out with a mystery guy in a pool in Spain.

Rihanna’s love life is always a popular topic of discussion, because we never quite know what’s going on. This time is no different. The singer was spotted canoodling with a mystery man on Monday (Jun. 26) while she vacations in Spain.

The twosome’s hot and heavy make out session was captured on camera by a stealthy paparazzo.

Between kisses, Rihanna and her new boo were seen laughing, smoking, and sipping champagne. The two later retreated into the luxury villa she been staying in.

Rhianna broke up with on/off again boyfriend Drake in October 2016. In recent years, she has also been linked to Leonardo DiCaprio, Travis Scott, and Matt Kemp.

While we don’t know who the handsome dark-haired companion in Spain is, she does seem to be enjoying his company.

Joseline Dragged for Attacking Stevie J’s Daughter Savannah on Twitter

Leave it up to Joseline Hernandez to turn an attempted apology into another insult. The Puerto Rican Princess is currently being dragged on Twitter after calling Stevie J’s 18-year-old daughter a “hoe.”

Joseline doesn’t have the greatest relationship with Stevie’s children, particularly his daughter Savannah. During a conversation with Mimi Faust on Monday’s (Jun. 27) Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta episode, Savannah said Joseline was “toxic” for her father.

“I just hope that our family — me, you, Eva, Sade, Steven, Dorian — all of us can stay together. For the sake of all of us. She’s so toxic to him.”

Joseline responded to the criticism on Twitter Tuesday (Jun. 27) and she some choice words for the 18-year-old.

One Twitter user felt the LHHATL star crossed the line by coming for her (almost) step-child and pointed out that she wouldn’t like it if someone treated her newborn, Bonnie Bella, like that. “Step up to the plate girl,” the user wrote.

But Joseline was hearing none of it.

The tweets stirred up Twitter and many were quick to call out Joseline for being in the wrong. With nearly 16K mentions, “Joseline” became a top 10 trending topic.

In a previous episode, Joseline sat down with Stevie and his two oldest daughters Savannah and Sade to apologize how her actions in retaliation to their father have hurt them. (FYI: In case you didn’t know, Joseline said some pretty sick things about Stevie and Mimi’s daughter Eva, who is also Sade and Savannah’s little sister)

However, the “apology” went all the way left, causing Savannah to become upset. Savannah was retelling the encounter to Mimi in Monday’s (Jun. 26) episode.

Unfortunately, Savannah shouldn’t expect an apology anytime soon. In fact, this situation seems to be growing worse by the minute.

Power Season 4 Premiere Recap: Ghost is Locked Up, Tasha is Fed Up, and Dre is Gonna Get Himself F**ked Up

Way back in the first season of Power, when we were first introduced to the “big rich town” and its colorful cast of characters, James St. Patrick aka “Ghost” was trying to be the “biggest goddamn drug dealer in New York City.”

By the time Season 3 rolled along, Ghost no longer wanted to be Ghost. He spent the entire season trying to erase his drug kingpin persona in favor of his business/family man image. His only problem was that no matter how much he tried to be the good guy, his past would always come back to haunt him, forcing him back into his old patterns.

Ghost is a perfect, living, breathing example of “wearing too many hats” or “spreading yourself too thin.” With him juggling so many different personalities, he was bound to end up where he is now, which is a helluva rut.

Season 4 of Power picks up literally where Season 3 left off. Ghost has been arrested for the murder of FBI agent Greg Knox, which is ironic, considering he had nothing to do with Knox’s death. Yes, Ghost has killed several people in the past, but only in his world would he be accused of a murder he didn’t commit, thanks to a nosy, ill-informed girlfriend.

PREVIOUSLY: Power Season 3 Finale Recap — What Is Ghost Gonna Do Now That Everything Has Gone to Hell?

As we all know from the Season 3 finale, Knox was killed by fellow cop Miguel Sandoval (aka “Mike”) for knowing too much, but no one in the world of Power is aware of this, except for Mike of course. The murder is pinned on Ghost (to Mike’s relief) all because he chose to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thanks to a careless slip-up, his fingerprints were discovered at the scene of the crime (Greg’s apartment) and Angela is convinced that her former flame is a murderer and Ghost would be crazy to think he can convince her otherwise.

Ghost is locked up, and they won’t let him out.

In the opening scenes of Episode 401, “When I Get Out,” as Ghost is being processed, his memory flashbacks to the times when his wife (Tasha) and his best friend (Tommy) tried to warn him about his side chick (Angela), but he just wouldn’t listen. I would bet real money that Ghost wishes he would have listened to them, but it’s too late for that now. He’s in jail for allegedly murdering a federal agent, and it honestly doesn’t look like he’ll be seeing freedom anytime soon.

The fact that Ghost is in jail for being an alleged cop killer makes him an easy target for the guards, especially one in particular named “Williams” (played by the late Charlie Murphy), who makes it clear early on that he’s going to be a problem.

Meanwhile, Tasha is back at home frantically trying to contact her husband to let him know about the ransom text she got about Tariq, but the prison guards won’t let him answer. When he points out that it could be an emergency, Angela quips, “We can send an NYPD cruiser by your place if you’d like,” and Ghost gives her one of those “if looks could kill” stares.

As this is happening, we see Sandoval about to dispose of the murder weapon, but he gets a phonecall informing him that Ghost has been arrested for Greg’s murder, so he decides to hold onto the gun. This guy is pretty shady, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he tries to plant it on someone. Besides, it will be pretty difficult for them to prosecute Ghost without a murder weapon.

While Ghost is in police custody, Angela tries to act like she’s enjoying seeing him helpless, but you can tell she still has feelings for this man. In fact, when she gets back to her apartment, she’s looking all sad and distraught and dramatically drops her wine on the floor. Girl, bye! You’re the one who put him in jail in the first place. You don’t even have a right to be sad.

Later, Ghost uses his only phone call to talk to his lawyer, Joe Proctor, who advises him to “keep your mouth and your sphincter shut.” Proctor, who has his own problems back home (his baby mama is a psychopathic drug addict), urges Ghost to be strong and he promises him that he’ll have him out of jail ASAP. Proctor then calls Tasha to loop her in on everything that happened.

Later, when Proctor goes to the jail, Ghost maintains his innocence, but the lawyer points out that they have DNA evidence and fingerprints against him. Ghost admits to being in the apartment to get the recording that could have exposed him and Tommy’s drug operation. “You told me I needed to get that recording,” Ghost says. “Yeah, I didn’t tell you to break into an FBI agent’s apartment to get it,” Proctor responds. “And I didn’t tell you to kill him!” Proctor clearly isn’t convinced that Ghost is as innocent as he claims.

“I need my kids to know I didn’t do this,” Ghost asserts, but Proctor says their first priority is getting him out on bail. Until then, Proctor advises Ghost to act like “legit club owner James St. Patrick and you wouldn’t know what to do with a gun if it fell in your lap.”

Prior to Ghost’s bail hearing, Angela runs into Proctor, who basically tells her that he knows exactly what she’s up to. “You know he didn’t do this. You’re just angry because he left you to go back with his wife,” he tells her. “This is revenge. You’re trying to ruin his life,” which, SHE IS!

Angela thinks this is “her case,” but because she f**ked not only the victim, but also the murder suspect, she’s informed by the new DA, John Mak (played by Sung Kang of the Fast & Furious franchise), that she’ll only be able to spectate.

At the hearing, Ghost pleads not guilty, and the judge seems like she’s leaning in Ghost’s favor, but ultimately denies bail until his trial. “You can’t think I did this,” Ghost says to Angela on his way out of the courtroom. “You’re right, Jamie. I know you did it,” she replies. (Insert obligatory eye roll here)

Back at the jail, Williams (Charlie Murphy) continues to antagonize Ghost, accusing him of “resisting.” He and another guard take Ghost to a secluded area and beat the crap out of him with their billy clubs. It looks like Ghost, the accused “cop killer,” is going to have a rough time in prison.
