Hey, was only 47 years old Quest, love and black thought. Released a statement saying May he be remembered for his devotion to Islam, his loving brotherhood and his innovation. That's one of the most gifted emcees of all time, so it's a It's a big loss in hip hop music for sure. There's another story in the news today about musicians protest ng the use of their music and political campaigns. We hear about this all the time. And does it ever really work? I mean the cease and desist these these protests go on, but it seems like the political campaigns continue to use this music doesn't Yeah, it seems like they are just continuously ignored the cease and desist orders. And you know the artists that have been affected by this Neil Young, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, You know they they are, you know, kind of putting out a warning before they actually file Legal action against the politicians who have been doing this, most notably, it's been the Trump campaign that's been using artist music without permission. That's against the law. You're not. You're not supposed to do that. And you know it. They've been warned with the cease and desist orders. So yesterday, uh, a letter was sent by 50 musicians sent out to both the Democratic and Republican parties. To stop using music for political purposes without permission. The letter was signed by Elton John. All of the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Lionel Richie, the group Lincoln Park, Green Day. Elvis Costello, John Mellencamp, Lord Cyndi Lauper. Is a long long list of artists who are all participating in this And you know, the letter is basically saying that it's inappropriate to use this music because it implies that the artist supports a particular candidate or platform over another. And that's why permission should be, you know, given and when your you know when you're using somebody else's music for anything, whether it's radio or TV or music used in a public place or music you hear in a store when you walk in a restaurant. You're supposed to pay for all that It's the property of the musicians and the writers, So we'll see if this puts any teeth into it, and it stops happening. Or if politicians are just going to continue to ignore. This will see and now on to Dean Richards, lifestyles of the rich and famous and we have a house for sale to report.

It has a 50 foot private oceanfront beachfront real estate. Section to it the asking price on this very modest $7.9 million. They bought it from Evanston's own Jeremy Piven. For $6.6 million just a year ago. So you know if they come close to their asking price that's gonna make a $1,000,000 plus in Ah, year. Poor J. Lo Pour a rod. You know, Once they get rid of this, they're gonna have to figure out where to live. Well, they've only probably got about eight other home, another home in Miami, another home in the Hamptons, another home in Bel Air, and another in Encino, California For some reason, you keep that he keep that straight. I mean, I look at the pile of bills. I have it in the house and trying to keep up with things. And how do you do that? When you have all those houses? I guess you have staff to do that, right?
