Hip-hop legend Eric B. has been released on bail after two weeks in custody over an old warrant — leaving him terrified for his future on the hit TV show “Blue Bloods,” according to a report.

The Eric B. & Rakim icon, real name Eric Barrier, had been held at the Bergen County Jail in New Jersey since October 28 on a 2002 bench warrant for failing to appear 17 years ago at sentencing after he admitted to an assault.

The arrest came just days after he made his debut on “Blue Bloods” — and left him “literally at wits’ end and overcome with anxiety” over his future on the CBS show, his attorney, Patrick Toscano, told NJ.com. Read more in Page Six.

kanye-west-madKanye West was recently named one of the world’s wealthiest hip hop artists by Forbes, with the publication estimating his net worth at $240 million. West, however, wants you to know he’s not a millionaire — he’s a billionaire. The rapper floated the idea of legally changing his name to “Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West,” just so everyone knows it.

Kanye dropped bombshell after bombshell in NYC, where he spoke at the Fast Company Innovation Festival. Seated next to Yeezy designer Steven Smith … Ye told the crowd, matter-of-factly, he will be running for President.
He didn’t get the reaction he was expecting … at all. The audience laughed, and Kanye stared back with a deadpan look and said, “What y’all laughing at?”
He went on to make the point that by 2024, Yeezy brand “will have created so many jobs, I’m not gonna run [for President], I’ll walk.” There was an uncomfortable silence following that, and he went on to say celebrities are terrified to speak their minds, including himself.

Please stop buying his bullshit… this dude is bat-fuck crazy. We’re swiping left!
