Dee Barnes Is Officially Homeless


Last month Hip Hop journalism pioneer Dee Barnes reached out for help, telling fans she was about to be evicted [click here if you missed that].

Now Dee is officially homeless...

Dee Barnes confirmed her homeless status with a picture of herself standing in front of a U Haul truck with the hashtag #HOMELESS while wishing Rosetta Tharpe Happy Birthday.


Fun Fact: Dee Barnes was brutally assaulted by Dr. Dre after interviewing Ice Cube right after he left the rap group N.W.A. on her Fox show Pump It Up. Dee's career never recovered and the beating incident was famously cut from the N.W.A. biopic 'Straight Outta Compton [click here if you missed that]."

I don't know what's going on with this sista, but I see talent all over her, she needs to write a book on female empowerment. There is something on the horizon for her, keep ya head up sis, better days are coming.

Folks were laughing at that Cosby actor working at Trader Joes. And the singer driving an Uber. But grown ppl gotta do what they gotta do to keep a roof over their head. And that does not include begging. Good luck to her finding a job and a home.

dre probably has her blackballed from even being able to write a book about her experiences. it's irritating how good people have to suffer and deal with the most bullshit from trash ass humans.

I know Dre beat her ass back in the day but to make it seem like he's the reason why she's homeless over 20 years later? Something seems off.
