A recent court ruling has resulted in R Kelly losing a significant amount of money from his commissary account. The court ruled that $27,828 be seized from the account and placed into a new interest-bearing account. This money will cover a $900 court fine and will also be applied towards victim restitution, once the amount owed is determined. Although R Kelly is not broke as a result of this ruling, he only has $500 remaining in his commissary account.

The music festival scene has become oversaturated in recent years. Smaller festivals have struggled to keep up with the bigger, well-known events. This was evident when Travis Scott’s performance at Day N Vegas was cancelled due to low ticket sales. The event was moved to a less desirable weekend because of competition from other venues, which likely contributed to the poor sales.
That’s all the news for this break; let’s get back to the music.
