Jus Bentley: Vivid Persona: Viralvoice Exclusive Interview

Jus Bentley: Vivid Persona 

A smile is worth a thousand words. Sometimes it invites you in, sometimes it hides the pain. It's all determined by what it takes to make the smile. Bentley at a young age, determined she would smile. Not just smile, but with ease and truth. Even if it would mean hurting herself or her family. She didn't hide behind what society sought her out to be, she embraced her truth. Music became an outlet early and a passion that couldn't be misguided. 
Without trying she teaches you to reach for the stars, to reach for your truth. Her music, her life, her goals is one to take notice. This is the exclusive interview of Jus Bentley: ONLY AT #V2

Suggested Listen: I Just want it all

#1 -Tell us who is Jus Bentley?
Jus Bentley is a humble young lady that has a very different view on life than most girls. Instead of rapping about sex or "pretty girl" things she looks at life from more of a "tomboy" perspective. Her attitude is often times raw and often can be compared to a young mans mentality. She is very money motivated & it shows though her raps. Her style is Aliyah or Missy Elliot motivated with the baggy clothes but still with a feminine touch such as make up , long hair , & accessories. Jus Bentley's message overall is to be true to who you are & to also show the world that women go through the same problems men do whether its backstabbers , jail , drugs , money , etc. 

#2 -How did you come up with that name? 
My name happened by mistake actually. A former member of the label I was under called me to be apart of there team & he asked me what my rap name was. I told him B money & he said no no that's to generic you need something that will make you stand out so I was like well I like "Bentley" and said yea me too just Bentley though right? And I thought he said "Jus Bentley" but he was saying just Bentley as in Bentley by itself. So the next day I went to the studio and the owner of the label said what's your name and I said Jus Bentley he said yea I like that so I've just keep it. It's working out luckily 

#3- So you grew up in Memphis TN, how was that?
Memphis has always been good to be. I moved around when I was little because of the divorce of my parents but I never had a so called "hard life" I mean there where days where better than others but I think that's everyone. I've pretty much been or stayed in every part of Memphis , it's not the best place to live but it's definitely a place that I'm proud to say I'm from. 

#4- Your open about your sexuality, how did that affect you growing up?
Being bisexual affected and still affects me today. I believe it's all about how you deal with it and how comfortable you are in your own skin. I knew by 8th grade that I wasn't like most girls. I was always with the boys either playing basketball , football , soccer it didn't matter I always felt and still feel like being a "tomboy" is apart of me. I love the skin I'm in & whether I marry a man or woman my number 1 priority is to be happy.
As far as growing up in a Christian household though it was more than frowned upon. My mother wasn't to find of finding out that her "perfect" daughter isn't so perfect. One day it just got to the point where she couldn't take it anymore and I was forced to live with my father. I have always been a daddy's girl so that didn't bother me but a child never wants to feel she isn't loved. Me and my mother are just now getting back to how it was before she knew but I don't think things will ever be the same. I mean I'm grown now so it's not much she can say but her thoughts of me still make me feel like I failed her. I think that's the hardest part of it all

#5- For anyone struggling with coming out with their sexuality what advice would you give them?
My advice would be to be comfortable in your skin. Come out when your ready , not when someone wants you too. 

#6-When was that moment that you got into hiphop like this is it?

I have always been into hip hop , but I think it didn't really click until I was about 9. My uncle was in a rap group and when I was younger I wanted to be just like him so when they would rehearse or write raps I would do the same and since then I haven't put the pen down yet

#7- Who is your favorite male and female MC off all time. 
Favorite male mc is hands down 2pac I mean that's poetry at its finest , it doesn't get any better than that
Favorite female mc goes to mc lyte & queen latifah I had to do both ahahahahaha oh wait can't forget missy tho , that's my girl 

#8- You recently jumped into IMBL(Iron Mouth Battle League) thats some tough competition, what made you do that?
Well , me and AC Dutch go way back and I was actually with him the night he told me he wanted to do a battle league and at first I kinda just was like yea ok watever but when I seem how professional and serious he was I knew that I had to be apart of it. 

#9- How does Jus Bentley Write and Record your music, like whats your process? 
Surprisingly I hate writing in the studio . I like to come already prepared with what I'm going to record & spend majority of the time mixing and tweaking. So when I get beats I listen to them all , listen again and jot down little notes for each one to see what I can write about. After that, I begin the actually writing process. When I'm done with all that I rehearse my lines till it becomes natural so when I record it doesn't sound like I'm reading and before I know it I have a mixtape

#10- For people who havent heard any of your music, what are the missing?
First off if you haven't heard my music WAKE UP! Lol Secondly their missing what a female rapper can bring to the table without having the "sex sells" mentality. I spit raw , vivid , and real stories of what either I or know someone who has been though. It doesn't get any better than that.

#11- So do you have and up and coming mixtape and what can we expect on it? 
I am working on an upcoming mixtape "No Days Off 2 " but there is no release date just yet. I'm still pushing "No Days Off" right now

#12- Any shout outs, or upcoming events and anything you want to drop to the people of #v2?
I just want to shout out my whole city and everyone who had supported me thus far. My second rap battle will be Aug 30th at The Renaissance 1588 Madison Ave at 6pm so I hope y'all come out and show support. I also have shirts , tank tops & hoodies available upon request so if you would like one of those email me atbookjusbentley901@gmail.com

Virginia Pastor & First Lady Charged With $1.2 Million Congregation Fraud Scheme

Virginia Pastor Accused Of Defrauding Congregation

A Virginia Pastor and his First Lady are accused of committing the ultimate sin against their congregation.
Terry Wayne Millender and Brenda Millender of Victorious Life Church are accused of defrauding members out of $1.2 million that they used for options trading and to buy their $1.75 million home.
Terry Wayne Millender, 52, the senior pastor of Victorious Life Church in Alexandria, along with his wife Brenda Millender, 56, both of Alexandria, and Grenetta Wells, 55, also of Alexandria and affiliated with the church, were indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday on charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering conspiracy.
Terry, Brenda and Grenetta operated a company called Micro-Enterprise Management Group, a Virginia company that alleged to help poor people in developing countries by providing small, short-term loans to start or expand existing businesses by working with a network of established micro-finance institutions, according to a press release.
The indictment claims some investors gave the Millenders sums totaling $40,000, $50,000, $84,000 and $400,000.
The representations were allegedly false and fraudulent. The money was allegedly used by the defendants to conduct risky trading on the foreign exchange currency market, options trading, payments toward the purchase of a $1.75 million residence for Terry and Brenda, and other personal expenses for the defendants, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Scottie Pippen Wants Full Custody Of Kids And No Alimony Paid To Larsa In Divorce

Guests attend the wedding ceremony of Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto, held at the Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church

Scottie Pippen Wants Full Custody Of Kids And No Alimony Paid To Larsa In Divorce

This Scottie and Larsa Pippen divorce is getting uglier than Scottie himself.
According to RadarOnline, the former (and bitter) NBA great is asking that the couple’s agreed upon prenuptial agreement be amended so that she doesn’t receive one red cent of his $50 million fortune.
Scottie also asked that he beGuests attend the wedding ceremony of Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto, held at the Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church granted FULL custody of their four small children (Scottie Jr., Preston, Justin and Sophia) AND permission to relocate the kids from Miami to Chicago.
“The Husband requests that this Court…allocates parental responsibility whereby the Husband is awarded ultimate responsibility over issues relating to education, health care, and general welfare of the minor children,” Scottie’s attorneys wrote.
He also announced he will file a Petition for Relocation on behalf of the children, and plans to whisk them away to Chicago, Illinois.
If forced to stay in Florida, Scottie said he should have the kids the “majority” of the time.
“If the Petition…is not granted, then it is in the minor children’s best interests that the Husband be awarded the majority of timesharing with the minor children during the pendency of this action and permanently thereafter,” the lawyers said.
Usually this is type of thing you hear the wife ask for, but Pip seems so adamant about all this that it kinda makes us wonder how much truth there is to the Future rumors.
What do you think Scottie saw or heard that has him upset? Is he under the influence of the petty purple reign?

Church Bans Fat People From Worship


Church Bans Fat People From Worship

The New Creation Church in Hillsboro, Oregon laid forth their holy decree that no chubby-lumpkins shall sit their large buttocks in the house of Gawd.
According to ChristianTimes, the church posted some quickly deleted “Worship Team Guidelines” to their website that got them in a bit of hot holy water with folks on the internet.
The church listed its requirements regarding dress codes, grooming and hygiene, attendance, attitude and holiness. Under grooming and hygiene, it required that the members should have “no excessive weight” to participate in the worship team.
“No Excessive weight. Weight is something that many people have to deal with. Make sure that you are taking care of your temple, exercising and eating properly,” the guideline stated.
But the flock wasn’t feeling that, so the church removed the tenet and apologized on their website
“There has been some media circulating about our Worship Team Guidelines. Forgive us if we offended anyone. That certainly was not our intention. These guidelines have never been used to discriminate against anyone and have never been enforced.”
Luckily for the congregation, Jesus loves all his children, even if they look like Precious…

Subway Jared's Ex Claims Company Knew He Was a Pedophile in Lawsuit

Article Image: Subway Jared's Ex Claims Company Knew He Was a Pedophile in Lawsuit
The ex-wife of former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle claims in a new lawsuit that the sandwich company knew he was pedophile years before it came out publicly.
Kate McLoughlin married Fogle back in 2010, and she says top executives at the company knew as early as 2004 and should have outed him. The suit claims the company could have saved her and their children from going through the emotional distress they currently have to endure if it acted on the knowledge. “A responsible corporation would take immediate action when hearing of this behavior, even if it was only allegations, Subway failed every test of corporate responsibility in its response to each of these complaints,” the lawsuit reads.
The suit also claims Subway was notified of Fogle’s “depravities” on three occasions. In one of these instances, a woman told the company’s CEO that Fogle admitted to having sex with children ages 9 to 16. The CEO responded by telling her that he did not want to hear any more about it and that Fogle would be good from here on out since he met a woman who would keep him “grounded.” That woman happened to be McLoughlin. Fogle was sentenced to 15 years and 8 months for child porn and sex with minors in November of last year.

5-Month Pregnant Woman Shot By Police

Article Image: 5-Months Pregnant Woman Shot By Police on WA Indian Reservation
Outrage rippled through Washington state over the weekend, after it was reported that police shot an armed woman suffering from mental illness, during what was supposed to be a wellness check. Renee Davis was five months pregnant with her fourth child when she was pronounced dead. She was 23-years-old.
Deputies of the King County Sheriff's Office arrived at Davis' residence, on the Muckleshoot Indian Reservation on Friday night, on Friday night, October 21. They were responding to a call about a suicidal woman who was armed in the presence of children. According to reports, Davis failed to respond to officers announcing their presence at her door, before they decided to force an entry into the premises. The deputies say while they did not see Davis, they caught a glimpse of the children in the home. Upon entering they spotted Davis gripping a firearm, at which point they let off multiple shots.
Some are drawing parallels between Davis' case and that of Korryn Gaines in Maryland on August 1, when police similarly barged into her home only to fire on her after finding her armed with a rifle. Gains also battled mental illness. Since the Gains' death, several other cases of mentally ill citizens whose lives have been claimed by police involved shootings, have occurred. In September the killing's of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, NC, and Alfred Olango in El Cajon, CA, during stand off's with police brought about an outpouring of calls for officers to approach such situations with a focus on de-escalation.
Davis' family has been meeting with lawyers and calling for answers, with her sister Danielle Bargala claiming to have known about Davis owning a rifle, but knowing nothing of a handgun. Other family members are calling for greater detail into the moments leading up to the shooting, with an interest in knowing what had been done to try to defuse the situation considering the police were aware they were dealing with someone suffering from mental illness.

Lil Wayne Admits to being Suicidal

Article Image: Lil Wayne Admits He Was Suicidal in Prison
Lil Wayne admits that he was "close to suicide" in his new book.
An excerpt from his new book “Gone Til November" reveals that Weezy suffered from depression and contemplated suicide during his 8-month stint at Rikers Island. “I ended up thinking about all types of s***. One thing that stood out was how I’ve never been this close to suicide before. It’s truly a new reality for me,” read the excerpt. “I was actually there when this kid that was in mental isolation tried to hang up. What’s really f**ked up is that it all could’ve been prevented if the (correctional officers) would’ve just brought him some water.”
Wayne goes on to explain that jail “desensitized” him. “Nobody really attends to [the boy] because they are used to them banging on their cells all the time yelling s***. And being that they’re so used to them banging, they didn’t pay him any mind, and by the time they got back there, he was trying to kill himself. And because I was in jail, I was like, ‘Damn, that n***a is crazy…Oh well, what are we eating tonight? Jail desensitizes a lot of things.” Wayne admitted to attempting suicide in Solange’s song “Mad.” “And when I attempted suicide, I didn’t die. Remember how mad I was on that day. Man, you gotta let it go before it get up in the way,” raps Wayne in his verse.
