Morning click: Kenna climbs Kilimanjaro, Lloyd Banks arrested
- Another week, another star-studded trek to the summit of Mount Kiliminjaro. Yep, that's right. Kenna, Lupe Fiasco and Santigold (Jessica Biel and Emile Hirsch, too) are climbing to the top of the nearly 20,000 foot mountain for Summit on the Summit, which has the goal of raising awareness about the global clean water crisis.
- G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks recently made news for releasing his latest mix tape, "V5." More recently he made news for getting arrested for assault in Ontario, Canada. The story making the rounds: late arrival to a club, truncated performance, no payment, punches.
- A favorite pastime in recent years is complaining about a festival's lineup once the bands are announced. But, to put things in perspective, at least our festivals aren't being relocated due to threats from Al Qaeda. Mali's Festival au Desert was moved from its regular locale in the Saharan desert to the outskirts of Timbuktu due to security concerns. The festival featured popular Malian artists such as Amadou and Mariam, Salif Keita and Vieux Farka Touré. Deacon from Animal Collective also played.
