Last weekend, Trey Songz launched his eighth studio album Back Home, which includes 22 tracks and features from Summer Walker, Ty Dolla $ign, Davido, and Swae Lee. Recently, he also launched a new video for the album cut “I Know A Love,” which was dedicated to his one-year-old son Noah and includes production from Chad Paul and Troy Taylor:

“I know a love, nothin’ compares to you, somethin’ so real, it make me feel brand new, wanna be the one to catch you when you fall, I’m gon’ be here, that’s forever, that’s for sure/

’Cause I know a love that make a man feel good, I know a love I never knew I could, I’m so thankful, you’re a blessin’ from above, so amazin’, now I know a better love…/”

This visual was self-directed and looks at Trey Songz’s first year of fatherhood. He is seen feeding and lounging around with Noah, as he plays with his toys, and also enjoying FaceTime with his son, and also includes a collection of phone videos and still shots.

Back Home included two singles “Two Ways,” “Circles,” the title track, and “Riots 2020: How Many Times,” and the latter saw him returning to the Commonwealth state to assist his community battling against racism and systemic oppression. Back Home comes after Tremaine The Album, released in 2017, which is a top three effort on the Billboard 200 and included 15 cuts and a single feature from Songz’s artist MIKExANGEL.

Moreover, this month, Trey Songz was also diagnosed with Coronavirus and took to social media to make this announcement:  

“I’ve taken many tests as I’ve been out protesting, food drives — of course, I have a very young son at home. So, I get tested periodically and unfortunately, this time, it came back positive. … I will be taking it seriously. I will be self-quaranting. I will be in my home until I see a negative sign.”

Recently, Jacob Blake’s father revealed that Lil Wayne called his son when he was still in the hospital, and recovering following his shooting by a cop in Kenosha, Wisconsin police officer.

In a recent interview, Jacob Blake Sr. stated that the “Lollipop” emcee spoke to his son on a phone call, and the latter could not contain his excitement.

“He called him and you would’ve swore [Jacob] was a little boy, man,” he said. “I promised I wouldn’t get emotional with him on the phone, but when he hung up the phone I couldn’t stop my tears. He said, ‘Dad, I almost choked up and ran across the room.’ I said, ‘Yeah, you would’ve done that until you realized that wasn’t going to work too well for you.’”

“And he said, ‘Yeah, but it felt like I could Dad. I felt like I could,’” Blake Sr. continued. “I said, ‘Well, that’s what it was all about. That’s why he called. We love you, dude.’”

“He stayed on the phone maybe 12 to 15 minutes with me and his mother after the phone call. He was in good spirits last night and it was good for all of us because it’s been tough,” he added.

Blake got a phone call from his favorite rap artist along with a great gift- an accessible van.  

On August 23, Blake sustained several bullet injuries as he was shot while entering the vehicle with his young children. Initially, the officers were asked to come sort out a domestic incident. Attorney Benjamin Crump stated that Blake was trying to put an end to a physical dispute between two women.

According to witnesses, the encounter between Blake and the police was recorded on their cellphones. In the video footage, it could be seen that he struggled to go away from the officers before attempting to get inside his car. Then, Blake was grabbed by Officer Rusten Sheskey, following which he was shot seven times in the back.

Recently, he was released from the Milwaukee hospital and was admitted into a Chicago rehab facility. However, it is not clear as to for how long he must remain in the center. He is paralyzed from the waist down.

Almost eight years following the news of tragic death of Trayvon Martin, he will be honored in his native city.

A resolution to name one part of Northeast 16th Avenue with his name, was approved by Miami Dade-County commissioners. By the end of this week, the roadway outside of Martin’s high school Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High will be named Trayvon Martin Avenue.

“Although borne out of tragedy, a new generation of activists was inspired by Trayvon Martin’s death, and his name and image are recognized across the world and associated with the fight for social justice,” Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara Jordan wrote in the resolution. “This board appreciates the social justice reforms spurred by his death, recognizes all that his legacy could have been and would like to honor the life and memory of Trayvon Benjamin Martin.”

It was in February 2012 that Martin was fatally shot as he was returning from a convenience store in Sanford, Florida. According to gunman George Zimmerman, he was acting in self-defense and eventually, he was acquitted.

According to the memo, Martin “was a typical teenager who enjoyed playing video games, listening to music, watching movies and talking and texting on the phone.” The 17-year-old “was also developing advanced mechanical skills and…was known to be able to build and fix dirt bikes.” According to the reports, he was planning on attending a college at either the University of Miami or Florida A&M University, wherein he planned on pursuing aviation, but his “future dreams and goals were extinguished before he had a chance to achieve them.”

 

It was the death of Martin that led to the Black Lives Matter hashtag and the Trayvon Martin Foundation. Eventually, the former became a full-blown social justice organization. On the other hand, the latter was founded by Martin’s parents, and it helps to “raise awareness, initiate dialogue, and engage individuals about social justice issues and reforms.”

The memo stated that the fatal shooting “elicited national conversations about race relations, racial profiling, gun rights, stand your ground laws and was a catalyst that set nationwide demands for social justice in motion.”
