Wu Tang affiliate Andre Roxx has filed a lawsuit against all news outlets that had falsely reported that he had cut his own penis off and attempted suicide. In 2014 a reporting error was made and Marques Johnson aka Andre Roxx suffered as a result. His name and image was tarnished as reports spread that he had castrated himself and attempted suicide. Roxx’ identity was mistaken and actually confused with another Wu Tang affiliate by the name of Christ Bearer, legal name “Andre Johnson.”
News outlets from TMZ to USA Today falsely reported the story and used Andre Roxx name and image. This all occurred while Andre Roxx was serving time behind bars and had no way to clear his name. The Roundtable Empire caught up with Roxx today to speak about the importance of his current lawsuit. “I have spent the better part of my life building a reputation as an artist. It is not perfect but everything it holds good and bad I had earned, until this story broke. I have no problems paying for my own sins but the sins of others is too heavy a weight. I want the name I earned back, nothing more, nothing less,” said Andre Roxx.
Stay tuned to The Roundtable Empire for further developments of this story…

The official video for “Retarded,” which can be seen below, is a short film that portrays both Lua Proc and Young Buck in street life fashion. The visual displays the gritty side of the game and how snitches most definitely get stitches.

The first single from the project has already been gifted to us. The track features a third Empire State rep, French Montana, and it’s titled “All The Way Up,” produced by Miami producer Edsclusive.
The new track definitely has the potential to be an early summer banger just like 2004’s “Lean Back”.

To add fuel to his flame, the Taylor Gang artist has recently released a 4-track EP titled And The Story Goes…
The new EP is accompanied by a nice short film that features a music video for each song. And The Story Goes… has a nice vibe to it and also includes a verse from Styles P. The visual shares some images of Chevy’s hometown and a fresh perspective nonetheless. Watch the short film below and let us know what you think.

Philadelphia rapper Gillie Da Kid is back with a certified banger titled “Im Da Man” featuring Baton Rouge native Boosie Badazz.
