Gospel artist Kirk Franklin is facing difficult times this week when he announced that his sister was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

He revealed the news in an Instagram post saying “I now feel the weight of wondering if I could’ve done more…”

It’s not clear what caused his sister’s long sentence.

However, Kirk has been pretty public about the struggles she’s faced, including an addiction to crack-cocaine. In a 2015 interview, Kirk said, “For over ten years, my younger sister was incarcerated in a facility here in Texas. She was in love with a young man who was drug dealer. He introduced her to not only selling drugs, but using as well. When he was arrested for drug trafficking, she was arrested along with him. After she served her time, she was brought before the review board who determined she was ready to be released and brought back into society. The documents were signed and she was set free… but only on paper.”

Kirk continued, “After a few months back into the free world, it became obvious to me rather quickly that my sister was still in prison. It’s what they call being institutionalized. She quickly started using again, becoming very reckless with her body, which turned into her using it as a means to pay for her habit.”

With more talk about prison reform and harsh sentencing, questions do arise on if Kirk’s sister deserved her 30 year sentence in the first place. Is it because of distributing drugs? Using? If she’s been committed to an institution before, shouldn’t her intervention be in the form of rehabilitation instead of prison?

Kirk has yet to go into details about his next steps following the intense news, but we’ll continue to keep you updated if anything major should surface.

Every member of Migos plays a vital role in the constant success of the group.

But for some reason, lots of folks sleep on the fire emcee that is Kirsnick Khari “Takeoff” Ball.

Takeoff may have been left off of “Bad and Boujee” (or was he?), but he certainly made up for it by having the hottest verse on every Migos track since then.

In honor of the ad lib god’s 24th birthday, check out a few moments when Takeoff was probably your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper.

Watch: This Man Prevents An 18-Foot Python From Killing Him

Things got real up in West Bengal, India recently when a forest range officer was handling a 18-foot python.

According to Catch News, Sanjoy Dutta was rescuing the snake from a village.

Sounds heroic right?

Only problem is, Sanjoy made the wrong move when he tried to pose with the snake for a selfie.

Video shows Sanjoy taking selfies with the locals when he starts to lose control of the snake. At one point, the python even wrapped around his neck and the villagers had to assist with detangling him.

If Sanjoy didn’t receive help, the python could have squeezed his life out. According to the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, it is considered animal cruelty to pose with a snake or perform other stunts with it.

So yea…Sanjoy was basically trying to floss for the camera and ended up risking his life while doing it. Next time don’t sign the snake up for a photo op.

You can watch the chilling footage for yourself below!

Dr. Dre Is Making A Marvin Gaye Movie & These Actors Could Ace The Lead Role

Universal Pictures And Legendary Pictures' Premiere Of 'Straight Outta Compton' - Arrivals

Dr. Dre will have a hand in bringing an iconic singer to life — the one and only Motown crooner Marvin Gaye. 

According to Variety, Dre is in the early stages of getting the project moving and the rights for Gaye’s music have already been secured.

This isn’t the first attempt at a Marvin Gaye flick. Directors like F. Gary Gray and actors like Jesse L. Martin and Lenny Kravitz have tried to bring a Gaye story to life. But until now, none of these projects were authorized by Gaye’s family.

With Dre getting the green light, it seems we can take the idea seriously now. Casting alone should be interesting. Gaye had a long career with hits like “What’s Going On,” “Sexual Healing,” and “Let’s Get It On” until he was fatally shot by his father at age 44 following a family dispute.

Whoever they get to play the legend will definitely have their work cut out for them. Swipe through for some people who could probably take on the sultry crooner!
