Up-and-coming rapper TWISTED BLACK has been sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine.
The court hearing in Texas heard that the musician - real name TOMMY BURNS - was selling up to a kilogram of cocaine every three weeks throughout last year (05).
Alleged co-conspirator COURTNEY IGLEHART testified how Burns paid him $4,500 (GBP2,286) in February 2005 for a quarter of a kilogram of cocaine.
Twisted Black's debut album is set for release in 2007.
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
