The ongoing controversy surrounding the death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin has inspired rappers from all over the country to vent their frustrations on wax. First came Oakland's Mistah F.A.B.'s "God Don't Love Me (R.I.P. Trayvon Martin)," and then Plies, the street rapper from Florida, released "We Are Trayvon. " You can now add Baltimore to the list, too. This past Sunday, Los , the local rapper recently signed (again) to Diddy's Bad Boy Records, released "Wit My Hoodie On," a song that uses Martin-specific references as starting points for Los' personal reflections on losing his father, how the public views young black men and more.

The Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant, pastor of a Baltimore mega-church, stood on stage with Trayvon Martin's family, attorneys and Al Sharpton on Tuesday evening in a nationally televised news conference after a Florida special prosecutor announced that George Zimmerman would be charged with second-degree murder in the teen's death. "This is not a night of victory — this is a night of transition," he said. "Years from this moment, historians will have to write a new chapter. This is not a moment, but the beginning of a movement.

Would you believe this fashionista calls herself "a country bumpkin [originally] from Louisiana." We had quite the opposite reaction when we "glimpsed" Ashley Woolsey celebrating her 21st birthday by taking a quick shopping trip to White Marsh Mall. That, in itself, was quite a treat, because the Rosedale stay-at-home mom finds herself on a rather tight schedule, with a 7-month-old son. "Everything I do, he's the main focus. ... He's my No. 1." Woolsey doesn't believe in following trends.

Ray Rice is easily my favorite player to cover on the Ravens. I love the way he plays. I love the points he scores for my fantasy football teams. And I love the way he handles himself in the media: equal parts goofy and serious. Playing at a Pro Bowl level again this season, Rice is getting more and more attention these days. He has been featured in segments on ESPN and NFL Network in recent weeks, and he just did a fun interview with GQ. Highlight No. 1: Rice showed up at Rutgers as a freshman wearing a purple hoodie with his own picture on it. “You've got to realize, where I'm from -- New Rochelle High School versus Mount Vernon High School -- that's as big a rivalry as there is. We beat them my senior year and there was this great picture of me running over some guy. It got put on a purple hoodie and I wore that hoodie everywhere.” Highlight No. 2: Rice explained why to him, Baltimore isn't just “crab cakes and football.” “They say 'crab cakes and football,' but that doesn't really work for me. I'm allergic to shellfish, so I can't do crab cakes.

Baltimore County Police are searching for two men who robbed a Royal Farms store in Towson Friday morning and then robbed a person in the parking lot on their way out.

Near City Hall, 5-year-old Shalyn Lloyd stood wearing a green hoodie and carrying a sign that read: "Are we next?"

Wearing hoodies, members of Maryland Legislative Black Caucus this afternoon called upon the U.S. Department of Justice to examine a Florida law that has become controversial in the wake of the death of Trayvon Martin. "We believe justice has not been served," said Sen. Catherine Pugh, a Baltimore Democrat who leads the Black Caucus. "We want people in the city, state and country to realize we have to be more culturally sensitive. " "You should not make assumptions because of what someone is wearing ... or the color of their skin," Pugh said.

Last year, even as she grew weaker from an illness she'd had for many months, the Rev. Josephine Pinkard of Severna Park kept telling her daughter, Avanette, of a dream she couldn't get out of her head. "I see the roof [of your business] opening up, and God showering the place with blessings," she told Avanette, who owns Essential Essence, a Laurel day spa and beauty salon. "I see it growing by leaps and bounds." At the time, the imagery seemed absurd. The Pinkards had started the business in 1997, offering their Severna Park home as collateral for a loan.
