Findling said the rapper successfully pushed his release date up by seeking and receiving credit for the days he spent in jail before his official sentence began, reported XXL.
"The reason for his release date is myself and my legal team took the position that he was not properly deemed and then credited for the time he was incarcerated while waiting for his case to go to court," Findling said. "We filed a series of motions after which being considered, the court signed an order in agreement with us. Bailor was sent to the Bureau of Prisons and his sentence was adjusted accordingly and he was released." Read more here.
Following the event, BBC Radio 1 issued a statement explaining the decision. They tweeted: "The safety of our artists is always our first priority. Sadly we felt there was a risk and had to cut Twenty One Pilots short. We're sad too."
Twenty One Pilots haven't yet commented on the decision. Joseph and Dun head out on a world tour today (May 31) in support of their fourth album Blurryface, which was released last year. Check out video of the incident here.
The video is a bleached out, beachy look at all things summer: ice cream, bicycle rides, boardwalks and of course beautiful women. "Blame it on the bikinis, party girls and martinis/ And the sunshine," Hunt sings. Summer, apparently, turns him into a wandering eye.
Shot from a first person POV-as if the camera were the man-the video follows his adventures down by the beach where he spends his time relaxing with one lady in particular. But he can't commit because it's summer. In the song, Hunt admits that he's too old to be playing such games, but he can't help how every May makes him want to let loose and enjoy being free. At least for the summer. Watch the video here.
The video features light animation that gives the whole thing a youthful flare. It begins with the sounds of a teenage boy snoring while title cards display an inspirational message for Fetty's fans: "A nobody high school dropout now known worldwide as Fetty. Celebrate everyday, roll something up and define your own path."
The video focuses on a young version of Fetty, played by another boy. He deals with a mom trying to get him out of bed in the morning, a teacher he doesn't want to listen to and friends who also want to "get Wiz Khalifa high" and have a good time instead of paying attention. In between shots of the boy going through his school day, Fetty stands in the halls of the high school and raps his verse wearing a massive smile. Watch it here.
The 8-track project largely showcases the Baton Rogue rapper with only one feature. OG Boobie Black appears on the track "Click House." The project moves away from the family-focused studio album Islah Gates released in 2016.
He named the album after his daughter, who also appeared in his music video for the track "Pride." Although questions about the kind of life he's giving his daughter come up on Murder for Hire II, Gates explores other territory.
At the end of the opening track, "F- It," Gates includes a message to listeners. "Hey, look, this is Kevin Gates, you heard, man? Appreciate you for joining me on this adventure that we about to go on, this is Murder for Hire II. Let's get into some s-." Read more and stream Murder for Hire II here.
The new versions were crafted by top DJs, including Lenno and Oliver Nelson. This move suggest that the former One Direction member will continue to enjoy a successful solo career.
His top-charting album Mind of Mine, which includes the original version of "Like I Would," also features the hit singles "Pillowtalk" and "Wrong." Check out the remixes here.
Law And Order was recorded at Monnow Valley Studios in Wales with producer Steve Evans - who's previously worked withy Robert Plant, Tax The Heart and Siouxie - and features contributions from Purson's Rosalie Cunningham.
"We put our hearts, souls, and a whole lotta blood sex magick into the making of this album," says frontman Luke Smyth, "We sincerely hope it blows minds and underwear clean open wide." Watch the documentary here.
Sleaze Roxx: I remember reading the reviews for [Frehley's Comet sophomore album] 'Second Sighting' and them being mixed. I guess someone had to be the 'fall guy' and I guess you were it in the eyes of critics and fans?
Tod Howarth: [Laughs] Of course! At first it hurt my feelings to a degree. I've learned to deal with it over the years. Listen, Ace is not a singer. He's a better singer now than he was at that time. When we were recording the albums, he wanted to sing. He knew he needed to sing because the fans wanted to hear him sing. You have to give the fans what they want because that would translate into album sales. I think the fact that I sang on half of the record and he sang on the other half of the record, the fans weren't too happy about it. So that's how things transpired and I got blamed for it.
Sleaze Roxx: Realistically, if you didn't sing those songs on 'Second Sighting' - than who would?
Tod Howarth: [Laughs] I know. They wouldn't have been on the record. Ace is a 'character' singer. It's like his laugh. It's identifiable. He has a certain style. He was never a singer where I've been singing since I was seven years old. I think people would have been happier listening to his style, his voice that to listen to my smooth vocals. Then again, there are people that really loved my vocals on that record yet they won't vocalize that. That's okay. You can't please everyone.
Sleaze Roxx: So when did things begin to go south with Frehley's Comet?
Tod Howarth: We ran out of money on the Iron Maiden tour. We were broke. We had to go home to reassess what we were going to do next. Around the middle of 1998, it was brought to my attention that I wouldn't be on the album and that Ace would be writing and singing all the songs.
There's several things wrong with that statement which I won't get into here. In the music industry, you make money from publishing, merchandising and touring if you're in a big enough band. Well, if I don't have any of those three, I don't have an income. How am I supposed to survive? I have heard this millions of times - "Oh, Ace fired Tod." Listen, Ace didn't fire Tod - Tod quit! There was no future for me there so I had to bow out. So after many attempts, I secured a solo deal though Simmons Records, oddly enough. It was right as the grunge thing was coming along so I got my ass kicked there. I was dropped and here comes Nirvana! [laughs]
Sleaze Roxx: You'd be open to a Frehley's Comet reunion show I imagine?
Tod Howarth: Oh for sure, if nothing else for the fans alone. We've talked about it but we've gotten a tepid response from Ace. I feel that from a business standpoint, it would behoove Ace to do it. Right now, Ace has some things going where he won't be paying much attention to a 'Comet' reunion at the moment. I don't think. In fact, Ace lives right here in San Diego! I met up with him at a book signing years ago and he has my contact information but I haven't heard from him. As I said, John and I would love to do it but it's in Ace's lap. He wants to do what he wants to do. Right now, my focus is Four By Fate.

Butler tells TeamRock Radio: "I'm gonna curate this art show. We're gonna choose 11 artists, one for each track on the record. Each artist gets assigned a song and the lyrics and however they feel inspired by the song, they will create a piece.
"The art space is booked right now and on the day of release we'll be having this art show for people to experience. There will be listening stations at every piece so people can hear the record and see the record and see what someone else saw when they were listening to that song." Read more here.
