Brooklyn Teen Kai Rizzuto Hauled In 1,000lb Grander Marlin In Hawaii

Monday, February 23rd, 2015


A New York City teenager made the biggest catch of his life when he reeled in a 1,058-pound blue marlin off the coast of Hawaii.

Kai Rizzuto’s catch came in about 300 pounds short of the International Game Fish Association’s 1982 world record for blue marlin, which was caught in nearby Kaaiwi Point, about 10 miles up the Kona coast.

Kai, who lives in Brooklyn, visits his grandfather on the Big Island every year. He has been fishing since he was 2 and apprenticed as a deckhand on a charter boat two summers ago.

Before this, the biggest fish Kai caught was about 55 pounds, he told CNN. By comparison, this week’s catch came in at 14 feet long, about “five times as big as me” in terms of weight and twice his height, including the bill.

“He has quite a bit of experience in big game fishing, but this was the first time that he has been the guy on the rod and reel for a blue marlin,” Jim Rizzuto said.

Kai and his grandfather were out on the charter boat Ihu Nui — Hawaiian for “big nose” — near Kahaluu Beach along the Kona coast, on the west side of the Big Island, when he hooked the big fish Wednesday.

“It was jumping straight out of the water, fully breached, shaking its head trying to free itself,” Kai told CNN. “I was really hoping and praying that nothing would happen to this fish and that it wouldn’t break off [the line].”

It took Kai about 30 minutes to reel in the fish, which was so long that the tail end of it was hanging off the 45-foot boat, Jim Rizzuto said. From there, it took four people to lift the fish into the boat.

“This fish came to the boat dead, upside down on its back, there was no chance of reviving it,” he said. “By and large, we try and release every blue marlin we can as a conservation measure, but sometimes in a hard fight the fish dies and there is nothing you can do.”

Instead, the fish will be used for food, Rizzuto said. He estimates it can feed “a couple of hundred people.”

“Blue marlin is a high-quality protein. They have been eaten here forever, so when we get a very special fish like this, you turn it over to a fish cutter that makes sure everyone who wants a piece gets a piece.”

As Kai heads back to New York on Saturday, he returns with a few blisters on his hand and an unforgettable story that is drawing attention worldwide.

It also has invigorated his interest in marine biology, he said.

“This makes me want to go into ocean science or to study the bigger creatures out there,” Kai said. “Maybe I want to be a captain. I want to keep my options open.”

The high school junior has plenty of time to figure it out. For now, he’s enjoying the glory.

This weekend, Chris Brown and his longtime girlfriend Karrueche Tran called it quits in a very public way, going back and forth on Twitter and Instagram, both accusing the other of foul play that ended their relationship. Brown even brought Drake into the picture, accusing Karrueche of taking trips to Toronto to date the “0-100” rapper while he was locked behind bars in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, sources reveal Drake is upset over the allegation and fully denies dating Tran, citing that he’s most known for hooking up with thicker women and that Karrueche simply isn’t his type.

“Drake’s an a** man. Think about it, all the strippers he gets with … the first [one] out of his type was Rihanna.” Because she’s, you know, Rihanna. Drizzy did admit to hanging out with Tran in his hometown, but only because she is friends with the woman he was actually hooking up with.

Check out pics of Karrueche, Chris and Drizzy above. Do you believe Drake when he says Tran isn’t his type and nothing happened? Sound off below.

(WPVI) — Philadelphia police have released video of a woman’s abduction in Germantown – and now say it appears to be a random kidnapping.

The missing woman is identified as 22-year-old Carlesha Freeland-Gaither.

The video shows the incident at 9:40 p.m. on Sunday on the 100 block of West Coulter Street.

You can see someone park a 2000-2002 dark gray metallic 4-door Ford Taurus with Pennsylvania plates by the street.

A man in a hooded sweatshirt gets out of the car and goes out of view, but then comes back dragging Freeland-Gaither.

She is seen struggling against her abductor while being dragged down the street.

Police say she kicked out both rear windows just before the car sped away.

While audio was not released by the surveillance video, investigators say it was clear that Freeland-Gaither did not know her abductor.

Because of the seemingly random nature of the case, police have called in the FBI for help.

HEAT MUSIC ANALYSIS FEATURE: Mystikal Pays Homage To The Godfather of Soul with single, Hit Me

Mystikal Pays Homage To The Godfather of Soul with single, Hit Me

Elements of hip hop represent a synthesis at its best. The way of life we love to bask in is a scaffold starting with archetypical musicians that were born in the 19th and 20th century. Although naysayers sometimes attempt to shun the foundational fathers of African American urban music, it’s merely an impossibility to separate the model embedded within us from the earliest soul and funk records.
James Brown, an American icon and trendsetter truly earned his moniker, “The Godfather Of Soul”.
Years later below the Mason-Dixon Line, New Orleans gave birth to “The Black Prince Of The South”.
So what’s the point?
The energy level first seen in our legendary superstar Brown manifested within “the man right chea”: Mystikal. His unique voice accompanied by New Orleans heavyweight producers Cise (Precise) and KLC fused smoothly with his repetitive ability to leave listeners and audiences in awe with catchy, comical tongue-twisting lyrics.
After years of success starting with Big Boy Records and No Limit Records, Mystikal is back on the scene.
So what’s this article about?
Mystikal’s ability to not only indirectly emulate the “Godfather of Soul” while still maintaining his uniqueness and originality, but his accountability as a creative. If one is really a hip hop connoisseur, then he will always pay homage to the roots of his craft.
Mystikal does a great job in representing and honoring the late James Brown with a KLC produced single, “Hit Me,” earning him a spot on the Rolling Stone Top 100 songs list of 2013.
The Heat Magazine wanted to point out this foreshadowing single as the world gets a closer look at the life of James Brown in the newly released blockbuster film, Get On Up. Be sure to check out the film and educate yourself on Brown who was a gem in American Music.

Gabrielle Union Blames Herself for Dwyane Wade’s Cheating Ways

Friday, January 10th, 2014


The star of BET’s original scripted TV series Being Mary Jane said her acting schedule got in the way of their relationship and the distance between them caused Wade to go astray.

“[When Dwyane and I broke up briefly in 2013], it was because of distance and scheduling,” she said. “I finished filming the show, then I flew to Vegas right away to start shooting Think Like a Man Too. I couldn’t take time off, and I missed some quality togetherness we desperately needed.”
Union doesn’t believe that men are innately wired to cheat. Instead, she believes the 31-year-old NBA superstar stepped out on her because she wasn’t affectionate enough or available to him when he wanted to get frisky in the bedroom.

Gabby, who acknowledges she is self-centered, said she plans to be more affectionate with Wade, and to initiate an open door policy to be available for sex whenever Wade is in the mood.

So far the change in her attitude seems to be working for the couple.

“Dwyane generally gets up before I do to go to the gym, and he’s never left without kissing me and telling me he loves me,” said Union. “As for me, I am complimentary to the point where I am almost a little Chester the Molester-y. I think he’s so delicious. Watching him get out of the shower never gets old. Never. It’s not like he ever wonders what I’m thinking, but usually he’s thinking, She needs a cold shower!”

Union said their 10-year age difference was a non-factor when she met Wade, who is raising two sons from a previous marriage and a nephew as well.

“After I had a heart-crushing breakup with yet another immature jerk, I thought, it can’t be any worse if I date a fetus. Let’s just see what happens,” said Union. “Turned out he’d been on his own since he was 15. He had wisdom that comes with facing an insane amount of adversity. He’s sweet, funny, honest about his shortcomings. When I put my preconceived notions to the side, I found someone cool.”
