Clint Massey, who raps under the name RondoNumbaNine, brags in one of his videos about his ability to "meet face to face, put a hole in your face, still beat the case. " "Glock go blah , damn, that's great," he raps. Now the 17-year-old Chicago rapper is charged with first-degree murder in a shooting, and investigators say there's a fingerprint, witnesses and video footage that connect him to the killing, according to local media reports. Massey appeared in court Sunday, where he was ordered held in lieu of $2-million bail on suspicion of being part of a two-gunman team that shot and killed a livery driver in Chicago's South Side in February.

Washington Wizards big man Nene has been suspended for one game by the NBA after grabbing, shoving and threatening to strike Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler in Game 3 of their playoff series on Friday night. In a closely contested, back-and-forth game that Chicago eventually won, 100-97, the 6-foot-11 Brazilian was ejected with 8 1/2 minutes left in the fourth quarter after he took exception to Butler bumping into him and incited a brief scuffle. The two players jostled after the bump, coming toe to toe and forehead to forehead before Nene grabbed Butler around the neck.

The gig: Michael Dubin, 35, is chief executive and co-founder of Dollar Shave Club, a subscription service that delivers razors and laughs. When Dubin released a YouTube video in March 2012 introducing his company, where members can get razors starting at $1 a month (plus $2 in shipping) delivered to their door, he had no idea the replenishable razor blades were going to be such a big hit. The goofy video went viral, orders poured in (12,000 in the first two days) and the company's website, DollarShaveClub, crashed in the first hour.

A woman was videotaped over Easter weekend removing a large stuffed yellow duck from the grave of an Ohio child. Now, Frieda Kay Shade, 54, has been charged with theft. Ontario, Ohio, police set up a surveillance camera near the grave site of Hayden Cole Sheridan, nicknamed Tank, in July 2012 because the child's parents said items left there were continually disappearing, Detective Jon Sigler told the Los Angeles Times. It took two years, but now Scott and Jaclyn Sheridan believe they've caught a thief.

BEIJING - Zhu Ruifeng fancies himself a Chinese version of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a citizen journalist who is plying his trade online. In 2006, he started the People's Supervision website, which breaks stories about official corruption in China. He has had a couple of scoops - one about the widespread use of expired vaccines and others about crooked party apparatchiks - but nothing that's gotten the reaction of a sexually explicit 36-second video released last week. The video shows a paunchy Communist Party official in flagrante delicto with an 18-year-old woman in Chongqing.

Don't call it a trend just yet, but it seems the movie industry is taking a liking to Instagram's new video feature. Last month, Facebook introduced 15-second video recording for Instagram as a response to rival Twitter's Vine service, which allows videos of up to six seconds. There may only be a nine-second difference, but those few extra moments are starting to make movie magic. This week, the Ashton Kutcher-led Steve Jobs biopic, titled "Jobs," was the first to roll out a movie trailer using the Instagram tool.

Poor Kate Upton. Can't a bikini-clad bombshell dance the "cat daddy" in peace?  The answer would appear to be no, judging by this week's controversy over a steamy shoot with fashion photographer Terry Richardson that had Upton taking a break from posing to show off her cat daddy skills. In a video posted  Monday to Richardson's blog Terry's Diary, Upton, on a break between shots, performs the cat daddy, a dance move made popular by the group the Rej3ctz and Chris Brown.

AMMAN, Jordan -- Video has surfaced that appears to show antitank guided missiles in the hands of a rebel faction operating in southern Syria, the latest indication that sophisticated U.S. weaponry is making its way to antigovernment fighters in Syria. The video, posted April 13 on YouTube, seems to depict a fighter from a group called the Omari Brigades firing a BGM-71 TOW missile at what appears to be a bunkered Syrian army tank. Although other videos circulating on the Internet have shown rebel groups in northern Syria firing TOW missiles, this marks the first time the U.S.-made weapon has appeared publicly in the arsenal of insurgents in southern Syria, a key front close to the Jordanian border.

After conquering the desert with star-studded sets at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival the last two weekends, Pharrell Williams' iron-clad grip on the pop conversation continues with his latest video, “Marilyn Monroe.” The video, which debuted Wednesday, doesn't boast much of a plot. It does, however, offer plenty of gorgeous women, flashy choreographed vignettes and lots of shots of his beloved, oversize hat. There's even an appearance by Kelly Osbourne. Here are five things we learned from watching: PHOTOS: Faces of Coachella 2014 1. He loves all kinds of women, OK. Pharrell faced some pretty harsh, and woefully unfair, criticism when he released the cover art to his album “Girl,” which featured him and three women all clad in robes and sunglasses.

Over the last year, Lord Huron has quietly become one of the breakout stories of L.A. indie music. Like their kindred spirits Local Natives, the experimental folk project has road-dogged its way to selling out two nights at the Fonda Theatre earlier this year. Ben Schneider and his bandmates have cultivated a bit of Old West mystery along the way, and Lord Huron's new video for "Ends of the Earth" elaborates on that with a gorgeously animated new clip.  Director Kevin Donelan spins a silhouetted tale of an outlaw's lost love on the railroads.

After spending 2013 ensconced in Brooklyn, the MTV Video Music Awards return to Southern California this year, landing Aug. 24 at the Forum in Inglewood. It will mark the first awards show at the arena since it reopened earlier this year after a $100-million makeover by Madison Square Garden Co. "Every year we ask the question, 'How do we do it differently?'" MTV President Stephen Friedman told The Times. "We had never done it at the Forum. When we heard it was being overhauled and really elevated in terms of quality and sound and look, this year we felt like the Forum would be a perfect place to do it. " The VMA ceremony has been held in a variety of locations over the years, last year at the Barclays Center arena in Brooklyn, and previously at Staples Center and the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, and Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Oprah Winfrey's cable network is in trouble, entertainment business reporter Joe Flint says in this video. Created 15 months ago in partnership with cable television giant Discovery Communications, the Oprah Winfrey Network was expected to get off to a good start by tapping the 6 million fans who were watching Winfrey's talk show in syndication.  Instead, OWN is averaging just 259,000 viewers in prime time, according to Nielsen. Winfrey said on "CBS This Morning" that the channel has been much harder to get off the ground than she expected, reporter Meg James writes today on our sister blog, Company Town.

A video making the rounds on the Internet shows a squid-topped dish. Soy sauce is poured on the squid and it begins flinging its tentacles. It even looks like it might be making a run for it at one point. It can be disturbing when your dinner moves around. Now Discovery Networks has an explainer (video above), telling why the squid -- which is indeed dead -- moves and whether the animal is feeling any pain. Both the video and the explainer are decidedly unappetizing, yet a little fascinating too.  Some of those who had seen the video, as the site notes, were disgusted by the apparent cruelty.
