It was a rough morning for hip-hop as two people were arrested and Gucci Mane was briefly detained during a raid on Waka Flocka Flame’s Georgia home, and DMX was sentenced to yet another year in prison.

According to a search warrant obtained by TMZ, police raided Waka Flocka's house seeking "marijuana, articles, pictures, and communications relating to gangs and gang paraphernalia." Waka wasn't home at the time, but police told TMZ that marijuana, prescription drugs and two firearms were found. Two men were arrested in the raid and charged with possession of less than an ounce of weed; Gucci Mane, who was also in the house at the time, was briefly detained and later released. He and Waka are both members of the 1017 Brick Squad collective.

Today Waka posted several messages about the incident on one of his Twitter accounts: "The folks just kick my door n good thing i left for court lol ... N they fuck my whole house up talking bout they got a tip ...... Hello i fucking rap .... Next time (po po) get a better tip ... If i dont stand for nothing i'll never b shit and thats real talk."

Waka Flocka was shot in what he described as a botched robbery in January, and was arrested for probation violation in March.

Meanwhile, DMX, who was arrested for a probation violation in Arizona last month, was sentenced to a year in prison on the charge this morning — his sixth stint behind bars in the state. The MC said late last month that a sip of alcohol during one of his concerts led to his arrest on multiple charges, including probation violation, failure to submit to drug testing and several drug charges.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
