The investigation into the Chesapeake shooting has revealed that the shooter, 31-year-old Andre Bing, left a “death note” where he describes feeling harassed by his coworkers. The six people he killed — before killings himself — have been identified as 38-year-old Brian Pendleton; 52-year-old Kellie Pyle; 43-year-old Lorenzo Gamble; 70-year-old Randy Blevins; 22-year-old Tyneka Johnson; and 16-year-old Fernando Chavez-Barron. He reportedly bought the 9mm handgun used in the shooting earlier that day.

According to eyewitnesses, the shooting was very targeted and Bing hunted specific people — even shot some of them repeatedly to make sure they were dead.

At least six people were injured, two of which are still in the hospital. One of them is in critical condition.

As Thanksgiving ’22 draws to a close, I am particularly thankful for songs that put you in a good mood. Songs like “When I Think of You” by Janet Jackson.

The critic class keeps telling us that songs that are heart-wrenching or make us “think” are the most important, but around here, we believe songs that make you happy matter the most. And I will die on that hill.

Ms. Jackson’s catalog is chock full of songs that lift your spirit, but there is something about “When I Think of You.” All the individual elements of the song are simple, but they come together is such a beautifully intricate way that can only be described as a masterpiece. Written and produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, the song was released as the third single from Control and would go on to become Janet’s first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making her and Michael the first — and to date, the only — siblings to have solo No. 1s on the chart.

Another reason to revisit this classic is that today just so happens to be Terry Lewis’ 66th birthday. He — along with Jimmy Jam — has helped craft some of the best music ever, and for that, we remain thankful.

A mugshot for Anderson Lee Aldrich, the monster who took five lives in Colorado Springs earlier this week, has been released. Before he was arrested, he was subdued by an army veteran named Richard Fierro, who tackled him and beat him with his own gun till he was unconscious. He was reportedly joined by a drag queen named Thomas James, who stomped the shooter while he was on the ground.

Fierro’s wife and daughter were among the 17 injured, and his daughter’s boyfriend, Raymond Green Vance, was one of the five killed.

The four others killed have been identified as Kelly Loving, Daniel Aston, Derrick Rump and Ashley Paugh.

Aldrich is being held without bond and has been preliminarily charged with five counts of first-degree murder and five counts of bias-motivated crimes causing bodily injury. The public defender representing him claims that he identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns.

When asked about the shooting, Aldrich’s father, MMA-fighter-turned-porn-star Aaron Franklin Brink (a.k.a. Dick Delaware), said, “I’m just glad he’s not gay.”

When we use the word “timeless,” we’re talking about songs like “Poison” by Bell Biv DeVoe.

Released as the debut single of the New Edition spinoff, “Poison” is the quintessential new jack swing song and arguably the foremost club banger in the history of recorded music. This shit SLAPS and remains one of the most quotable songs ever.

Written and produced by Dr. Freeze, “Poison” is a harbinger of sorts for what popular music would sound like for years to come. We’d seen hip-hop blended into sung music before, but not at that scale. In the video, BBD describe their sound as “mentally hip-hop smoothed out on the R&B tip with a pop appeal to it,” and they truly couldn’t have said it better.

“Poison” peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and ranked at No. 4 on the 1990 year-end chart.

Who would’ve ever thought?

Twenty-five years after their infamous rematch that ended in Mike Tyson chewing off a piece of Evander Holyfield’s ear, the two former heavyweight champions are partnering on a business venture that gives a nod to that headline-making moment.

The boxing greats came together to create Mike Bites, a line of ear-shaped edibles. In an interview with HuffPost, Tyson said, “If I was on cannabis, I wouldn’t have bit [Holyfield’s] ear!”

What a time.

In August of 1999, Eve released “Love Is Blind” (featuring Faith Evans) as the second single from her debut LP, Let There Be Eve…Ruff Ryders’ First Lady. The song is heart-wrenching, mostly true story about Eve’s best friend’s experience with an abusive boyfriend, who beat her even while she was pregnant with his child. The only difference between the song and the real-life events is that Eve’s friend escaped the relationship, while the character in the song is eventually killed by her abusive boyfriend, after which Eve kills him.

“Love Is Blind” wasn’t a major chart hit, but it is a standout in Eve’s catalog. Lyrically and delivery-wise, it is arguably Eve’s strongest performance and a perfect example of hip-hop as a storytelling art form.

On what is Eve’s 44th birthday, let’s revisit this classic.

This should come as no surprise to anyone who read the company’s statement announcing the end of its partnership with Kanye West.

During a shareholders call earlier today, Adidas executives confirmed plans to begin selling the Yeezy designs under a new name as early as 2023. They also estimate that the end of the partnership with Kanye may cost the company up to $500 million in lost revenue — initial estimates had put that figure at $246 million.

Kyrie Irving is learning the hard way about what happens when you play stupid games.

Just days after he was suspended indefinitely, the Brooklyn Nets have given the player a six-item ultimatum — including condemning the antisemitic documentary he posted — that needs to be satisfied in order to return. This comes after his soft apology posted on Instagram, which game a day after his suspension.

On Friday, Nike announced that it was suspending its partnership with the 30-year-old, whose deal with the company is one of its most lucrative. The suspension comes just days before the scheduled November 8 release of the Kyrie 8 sneakers, which have now been shelved.

Considering how often British acts take over the American charts, it’d be easy to assume we get to hear all of the UK’s best. However, there are many amazing Brits that never ventured stateside.

A fine example of such Brits is Shola Ama, an R&B singer who had a brief but successful run in the late ’90s. Though she was a teenager at the time — born in the same year as Aaliyah and Brandy — she sung like she had been on earth much longer. She scored four top 20 hits in the UK, including two that peaked in the top five.

One of her top five hits was a cover “You Might Need Somebody,” a song originally recorded in 1980 by Turley Richards and made famous by Randy Crawford’s 1981 cover. Quite simply, Shola Ama’s version towers over the others.

We’ll never know for sure how she would’ve fared in the American music market, but one thing’s for sure: Shola Ama is an amazing vocalist who every true R&B fan should know.
