Soulja Boy faces lawsuit for allegedly beating pregnant ex-girlfriend into miscarriage

Soulja Boy steps out with new mystery girlfriend amid a sexual assault lawsuit filed by his ex.

The SODMG rapper is being sued by an alleged ex-girlfriend who claims she suffered a miscarriage after she was badly beaten by the rapper. The lawsuit was filed under the pseudonym Jane Doe, as the woman did not wish to reveal her identity. The anonymous ex-girlfriend is reportedly claiming that she was a victim of domestic violence for years during her relationship with the “Crank That” rapper. What made her cup overflow was the alleged loss of her child in 2015 by the hands of her former lover.

The woman claims that Soulja Boy became violent and irate and began punching her in the face and chest until she could not manage to stand. She explains that after falling to the ground due to the impact of his attack, she curled her body to protect her stomach and the child she was carrying while covering her head with her hands. Soulja allegedly continued his abuse by kicking her all over her body and in her stomach, after which she suffered a miscarriage.

The unnamed woman also made reference to other violent attacks carried out by the rapper. She claims that in 2017, Soulja went into another violent rage because he thought she was leaving him. During that incident, she received blows to her face and her breasts. The incident was so severe that the rapper’s security guard had to step in to put an end to the beatdown.

Another incident in 2018 allegedly occurred while the rapper was filming a reality TV series. She says this incident, which was another conversation that turned violent, was caught on the night vision camera. The incident, which was aired on the WeTV network in early 2019, documents the rapper yelling at her during the attack.

The yearly attacks continued in 2019 when Soulja threatened her life as he “tightly gripped” her neck and choked her. This took place after she refused his efforts to revitalize the relationship following her decision to move out of the home she shared with the rapper. These incidents were amplified by the numerous threats the rapper dished out if there was any refusal to have sex.

The woman is now reportedly suing for assault, gender violence, sexual battery, and more. Soulja Boy, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, has had several legal issues over the years, from firearm possession to violating his probation to assaulting a former assistant. The assistant had claimed that Soulja Boy was repeatedly abusive, which the rapper denied.

Soulja Boy has since responded in some tweets he has since deleted. He also shared this photo of himself with a mystery female before quickly deleting it.

Joe Bidden Clears The Air Details Why His Podcast Implode, Rory Breaks Silence

If it’s one thing that’s guaranteed with Joe Budden, it’s that he’s not going to hold back, and he’s always going to speak his truth.

The ex-rapper decided to speak directly to the fans of his The Joe Budden Podcast and delivered a 30-minute explanation of why the show imploded earlier today, May 13. It was reported yesterday, May 12, that he fired Rory on the air after some questions were raised about sponsorship and endorsement deals.

As the news spread via social media, it became a dominant topic on Twitter. Mal hasn’t made any statement as yet, but Joe Budden had a lot to say about why the show, as we know it, might be gone for good.

“I’m not skirting around my career successes because these two gentlemen may see it another way,” Joe Budden began. “That can’t continue to happen. The way that I go about conducting business cannot be affected by people that cannot affect it. That’s what’s been going on since the second year of the Spotify deal,” he shared.

He also took the time out to address the accusations that he had been somehow stealing from his co-hosts. In the snippet of conversation that was played yesterday, it seems the trio’s real argument was over money.

“There’s been a lot of nasty accusations of thievery and questions about shit from n-ggas who can’t question me about shit and I can’t say that because we’re friends. If you don’t seal it up, it can come back to bite you again. These n-ggas been beefing about accounting for three years. Nothing you say matters in the accounting,” he continued.

Even though fans knew there was some tension between the team after Rory and Mal went on strike in March, Budden admitted that the issues ran deeper than what was made public knowledge. He said it was only a matter of time before he knew that things would boil over.

“I believe at the time of the implosion, these gentlemen didn’t have any idea what was in their contract. I believe they didn’t read it. I think they negotiated it, but do I think they were all the way aware of what the contract said? No. Do I think in their accounting mission, did they find out what the contract said? Yes.”

Joe Budden added that even though he, Rory and Mal, were good friends, he did not believe that it gave them the right to know about all the financial details and bookkeeping. He said this was because he had a duty to protect the podcast and network, which at the end of the day is his multi-million dollar venture.

“I got too much going on for these two brothers come and tell me how this thing is supposed to run and all of the accounting that people provided was fraudulent,” Budden said. “Bitch, where did the check come from that you cashed?” he questioned.

He added that he believed that they felt there was a lot more money in the Spotify deal than what he told them. He also chose to clear the air on that.

“I think they think the Spotify deal was worth a lot more than whatever I reported. They might think I’m pulling something else funny with a deal from somewhere else and I made tens of millions of dollars and reported it as one million and pocketed the money,” he added.

He also confirmed that the show is not over as he intends to carry on The Joe Budden Podcast, most likely by himself or with guest speakers like he did when the rest of the team went on strike. He added that he also wanted to speak with Mal alone, but he hadn’t returned any of his numerous phone calls and texts. He also has no problem having a conversation with Rory if it comes down to that. It looks like we’ll just have to wait and see what happens with the team from this point.

Rory also broke his silence on his firing from the podcast and is rumored to be seeking legal advice. “Mannn .. what an era .. thank you to everyone that listened, supported, told their friends about us, bought a subscription, ticket, or merch .. any value starts & ends with y’all .. I’ll get to that messy shit soon but in the meantime I’m here to celebrate an amazing run!! Love,” he tweeted.

J. Cole’s Freestyle Earned Him Some Backlash For This Bill Cosby Line

J. Cole kicked off his return to music with a fire freestyle but it didn’t come without controversy.

The Carolina native may have been missing from the scene for a bit, but he clearly didn’t take any time off. J. Cole is the type of rapper who probably writes bars in his sleep, so it was no surprise when he dropped by The LA Leakers to deliver a couple of flawless freestyles over some throwback tracks.

When presented with the instrumentals for Souls of Mischief’s “93 Til Infinity”, Cole didn’t hesitate to pour out his honey smooth flow, quickly getting to the real point—explaining that he knows he’s the best, even if he doesn’t always get the accolades he deserves.

“This is chess better check your board/Who gave the world more fire but got less reward?” he rhymes. “No stress, my only guess is that less is more/More or less, hundred G’s in my dresser drawer.”

He goes on to reference his lavish lifestyle and womanizing tendencies, not untypical of many rap lyrics. However, what is untypical is Cole’s highly elevated wordplay and use of clever callbacks and complicated rhyme schemes.

“Walking contradiction, my description,” he spits, accurately pointing out his ability to be both stereotypical and entirely unique at the same time.

J. Cole goes on to deliver another freestyle that shows off his fast-rapping skills. Although he isn’t necessarily known as one of the quickest spitting rappers in the game, he definitely has flows in his arsenal that would get many other rappers tongue-tied. Rapping over the slow southern beat for Mike Jones’ “Still Tippin”, J. Cole expertly juxtaposes the track’s drawl with a rapid-fire verse that addresses the many ways in which he sets himself apart from other popular rappers, as well as his gratitude for how far he’s come.

For good measure, Cole also throws in a Bill Cosby reference that manages to be cringeworthy and genius at the same time.

Luckily for J. Cole fans, the rapper has much more to offer following these freestyles. His sixth studio album, The Off Season, drops Friday, May 14th.

R&B Singer Tank Reveals He’s Going Completely Deaf

R&B legend Tank revealed that he’s going deaf among some other sudden health issues.

The singer revealed the shocking news to his fans via Instagram on Wednesday when he posted a video explaining what’s been happening. While he is getting a ton of support, especially from his core fans, we’re all praying for a speedy recovery as everyone rally to offer prayers and well wishes.

“I’m going completely deaf in my right ear and I’m kind of losing sound in my left,” Tank said in the video before revealing that he has been getting medical attention. “I’m dizzy, can’t walk a straight line. All of this out of nowhere. Don’t know how or why. Seen the doctors and got MRIs and all that good stuff going on.”

In a somber mood, Tank also assured fans that he is by no means giving up despite the seriousness of the situation.

“It still hasn’t given me a reason to stop feeling like I can do and be everything that I’ve set out to be,” he continues. “The goals are still the same — to be great, to be the greatest. And I wanna say that to you, too. No matter what you’re going through, no matter where you find yourself, whether your body’s failing you, whether your mind is failing you, whether your spirit is failing you, keep going, keep pushing.”

Tank says he will be documenting his journey as a means to help others going through similar situations to know they’re not alone and that they can get through it. Meanwhile, the R&B crooner has been getting an overwhelming amount of support not just from fans alone but also from his peers in the industry, including Kevin Hart, his wife Zena Foster, and 112 singer Daron.

“Prayers up king stay strong and stay positive Love u champ,” Kevin Hart wrote.

Soulja Boy Responds To Ex-Girlfriend’s Sexual Battery Lawsuit

Soulja Boy called out his ex-girlfriend in his response to her lawsuit for sexual battery.

While Soulja Boy‘s name has been thrust back into the spotlight with his latest hit, “She Make It Clap,” it’s the recent allegations filed against him on Tuesday, May 11, that have been securing headlines all over the country. The rapper recently broke his silence on the controversy through a string of tweets.

The woman, who did not wish to reveal her identity, filed the lawsuit under the pseudonym, Jane Doe, claiming that she was being abused by the rapper for years, TMZ reported. The complainant said she suffered a miscarriage in 2015 as a result of the severe beatings she received from the rapper.

On Wednesday, May 12, Soulja Boy took to Twitter to respond to the anonymous woman’s claims with several tweets, all insisting that the matter is only being brought to the courts because the complainant is looking for a major payout.

“Will somebody come get they broke a*s daughter,” he fired off on Twitter while adding, “At the end of the day, sometimes us men just pick the wrong females to be with. I’m a legend I can’t date a b*m b*tch that’s out.”

“A man provides everything and all you provide is an attitude? Stop it you gonna get cut off. P***y is everywhere. Simple,” he continued without any denial of the acts he’s now being sought for.

He continued, “At the end of the day you can’t force nobody to be with you. If somebody don’t want you no more let them go don’t try and blackmail them to be with you. That’s evil.”

This tweet, though agreeable, totally contradicts the reports of the woman. The anonymous Jane Doe claimed that she was physically abused multiple times, including when she tried to leave the relationship. But there is one view the two seem to share… that the relationship was toxic.

“How you gone be broke, don’t have a job, no goals, no ambition, nothing going for yourself in life at all. And on top of that toxic? Like come on nobody putting up with that sh*t.”

In another tweet, he added, “Keep it G some of these ho*s just pure toxic.”

It has not been revealed how long the two were in a relationship. However, court filings by Jane Doe hinted that things became rocky in 2015 when she lost her unborn child. This apparently set the pace for other incidents of abuse, such as a 2018 attack that was caught on a night vision camera while the rapper was filming a reality TV series. The female in question mentioned that the incident was aired on the WeTV network in early 2019. She also made reference to a number of other violent attacks and threats, many of which came about through her refusal to have sex.

She is allegedly suing for assault, battery, gender violence, and more.

Badda General, Liquid & Wayne Marshall Tackles Trafalgar Road Shooting In New Song

The phone conversations between Jamaican-based entertainer ZJ Liquid and US-based deejay Badda General continue with their new track “Current Events.” The new release differs from their previous tracks as a result of a melodic hook from Jamaican Youtuber and reggae artist Wayne Marshall.

Liquid and Badda have been delivering their brand of comedic social commentary for the better part of last year with collaborative singles such as “State of The Union” and “Barrel.” The latter was recently remixed by UK-based dancehall artist Stylo G and Ghanian dancehall superstar Shatta Wale.

While the deejays maintain their usual comedic stance for “Current Events,” the basis of their argument is far from hilarious. The skit sees Badda reaching out to Liquid as he usually does. This time the call is to check if his longtime friend is doing okay, following his review of the daring police takedown of 3 criminals on Trafalgar Road in Kingston on Monday. The two Montegonian natives have been friends for more than two decades, forging their friendship as selectors on the Montego Bay circuit during the late 90s.

Badda and Liquid go line for line as they comment on the actions of the criminals, police, taxi operators caught in the crossfire, as well as the state of Jamaica’s crime problem.

“The Place Hot Streets Crazy Dem yout ya mash works daily / You no hear wa dem do the man a Swallow Field / You No Hear Wa Dem Do The Old Lady,” Marshall questions in the chorus.

The Joe Budden Podcast Crash And Burn After Firing Rory And Blast Mal

The Joe Budden Podcast might be coming to a permanent end after Joey exploded and fired Rory before blasting Mal.

It’s not business as usual with hosts of The Joe Budden Podcast, and the show may have come to its end following quite an exchange earlier today, May 12. Many believed that after co-hosts Rory and Mal went on strike, the working relationship had been repaired. That definitely doesn’t seem to be the case after Episode 437: “You Want It To Be One Way.”

Joe Budden has already allegedly taken down the episode just an hour after posting it, but in the age of social media, that was enough time for several recordings of the incident to pop up on Twitter.

In one clip, Budden can be heard complaining about contracts, advertisers, and money. At one point, he says: “You bring it, you eat different, I bring it, I eat different. You ni**ers ain’t brought sh*t.”

Joe Budden goes on to say: “Y’all will not continue to treat me this way. Y’all not going to continue to treat these people this way. Y’all take that f$ckin’ dark energy, that arrogance and entitlement somewhere else. I say all of that to say, we gonna do this since Rory feels like he has so many options,” he’s heard saying.

Later on, he adds: “Somehow he still feels he’s running the show. He still feels like he has choices and options. He feels like he’s entitled to more. Rory, you are in breach of your contract, and from this point forward, you are fired! And you’re not welcome back.

A clearly upset Budden goes on to say: “Mal, I’m the person that has to say that. The gall of you to think you are deserving the way that I am.”

Twitter user @TheDarknessDev posted up the alleged heated confrontation.

It didn’t take long for Joe Budden’s former Everyday Struggle co-host Akademiks to jump on the issue and let his fans know that he’d be speaking on the matter. He Tweeted: “See y’all on twitch today at 3 p.m. Classic stream incoming. I promise.”

Just about two months ago, Rory and Mal went on strike following an argument. The crew recently reunited on April 28. It looks like the dream is over, though as Joe Budden acknowledged that the show was over with a tweet early Wednesday morning, writing, “Helluva run. God bless!”

Helluva run!! God bless.

JetsonMade Explains Why He Turned Down Rihanna For J. Cole

Producer JetsonMade explains why he opted to work with J. Cole instead of Rihanna.

Many of music’s biggest producers would have possibly sold a kidney to secure a collaboration with Rihanna, but not JetsonMade. The young beatmaker
recently revealed that when the bad gal summoned him, he decided to pass on the opportunity, opting to work with J. Cole instead.

JetsonMade was chatting it up on a recent interview when he made the big reveal.

“I was really supposed to go work with Rihanna. I swear to god, I skipped out on that shit to go work with Cole,” he said before showing love to both parties. “Shout out to Rihanna though, I hope we can get in there. It was more personal. Cole reached out to me personally, I was at this man’s house, like, f**k that, I’m going with this n***a.”

Jetson has been making extensive strides in his career over the last couple of years through his work with DaBaby, having produced the rapper’s breakout single “Suge.” His credits now include the likes of “What’s Poppin,” which featured Jack Harlow, as well as work from Roddy Ricch, Playboi Carti, and Youngboy Never Broke Again.

J. Cole is considered one of the industry’s greatest song writers, and with the release of his latest album only days away, the spotlight is firmly on the “Workout” rapper. Jetson has also been cast into the limelight for his work on Cole’s recent release “Lion King On Ice.”

100% true story lol one of the toughest decisions we had to make. But shoutout to @KingOfQueenz and @JColeNC, go stream Lion King On Ice rn! pic.twitter.com/t7PblSjF8C

Many have applauded the 23-year-old producers for his recent accomplishment. However, they felt that a RiRi collab would have been more impactful to his career and could possibly help with breaking into the Pop realm. Still, others have hinted that while this means that Rihanna is working on new music and could be releasing her R9 project, it doesn’t guarantee that his production would be selected from the many others on her chopping block.

Lapattra Jacobs Speak On Relationship With NBA YoungBoy

Lapattra Jacobs, one of NBA YoungBoy‘s baby mothers, has disclosed that she would have still been in a relationship with the rapper if she had not been attacked and stabbed by Iyanna Mayweather last year.

Jacobs was hospitalized with severe stab wounds inflicted by Mayweather, who at the time was NBA YoungBoy‘s girlfriend. The knife attack happened in April of last year at YoungBoy’s Houston home, where Mayweather caught the young rapper and Jacobs, who was reportedly pregnant at the time with his child.

An altercation ensued that left Jacobs nursing wounds and Yaya looking to face some time in prison. After the incident, Mayweather was released on $30,000 bail and was ordered to stay at least 1,000 feet from Jacobs.

A few months after the incident, Lapattra took to Instagram Live to show her wounds, noting that she could not fully extend her arm that was sitting in a cast from her elbow. She also later removed the cast to show her followers that her hand lacked mobility.

On Monday, May 10, Jacobs went live on Instagram, seemingly healed from the wounds that were inflicted but still somewhat scarred from the incident. During her Live, she discussed her relationship with YoungBoy.

“He’s still young, so he ain’t ready to settle down. In my mind, I know cause I’m older than him so I know a young person really not ready to settle down,” she said.

However, she added that even though she was aware that he was for the streets at the time, she would have still been “low key” with the rapper if she was not attacked.

Yaya, who is the daughter of the famous boxer Floyd Mayweather, had been in a tumultuous relationship with YoungBoy since the end of 2018. She welcomed their son Kentrell Jr. in January this year and is still showing loyalty to her baby daddy. Reports are that the father of seven should be welcoming his eight with his ‘former’ girlfriend, Jazlyn Mychelle. The two reportedly rekindled during the rapper’s time in jail. YoungBoy is currently in police custody after he was arrested in March on felony charges, following a wild pursuit in Los Angeles. He is currently awaiting trial.

Chris Brown’s Birthday Bash Shut Down By LAPD

Chris Brown has never been accused of not knowing how to party.

The superstar singer celebrated his 32nd birthday this week with a huge event at his house on Wednesday, which also happened to be Cinco de Mayo. The party, which has held in Tarzana, CA, reportedly became so large and loud that the neighbors called the police, who escorted guests out of the area.

According to TMZ, the night saw around 500 attendees, and ABC7 reported that neighbors were complaining about the 300 cars parked outside Brown’s home. After speaking with Chris Brown’s onsite security team, the police asked that the music be turned down and partygoers asked to leave.

Of course, getting that many people out of a neighborhood at 2am is a feat of its own. Police cars reportedly helped direct traffic and multiple helicopters recorded the situation from above. The cops involved did report that guests were very cooperative when leaving the party.

Chris Brown has yet to speak out about the incident or the party, but video clips shared online show the singer enjoying his celebration and turning up to some of his own hits. Considering his history, it seems unlikely that Brown is very rattled by the experience.

In 2019, cops were called to the same home for a similar reason, except this time, it wasn’t a party that drew far too many people to Chris’ house. Brown took to Instagram to share his home address with his millions of followers, announcing that he was hosting a yard sale where fans could score some of his pre-worn designer items at a discounted price.

Chris Brown intended to donate a portion of the proceeds to charity, but LAPD quickly tried to shut the event down by claiming the singer needed a permit to sell out of his house. However, Chris’ legal team fought for his right to have the yard sale, which continued as planned while police patrolled the area out of fear that crowds would become too large. Clearly, Chris still isn’t concerned with the impact of large crowds, even in the middle of a pandemic.

T-Pain Says Producers Deserve More Credit For Hits: “Y’all really just like the beats”

T-Pain says producers deserve way more credit for their work.

The 35-year-old rapper/producer is calling on music fans to show love to the correct musical maestros with his latest tweet. T-Pain wants listeners to venture beyond the sometimes incoherent lyrical delivery heard on many of his recent releases and give praises to the producers who craft the beats which power several of those modern hits.

“The producers are the ones that deserve all the clout,” he declared before explaining his stance, “because y’all really don’t be liking these songs, y’all really just like the beats. When you hear a certain producer’s tag you don’t give a f***k who’s on it because you know you gon like the beat. give them they flowers fr.”

The “Bartender” singer, who is still active to this day, is armed with at least a decade and a half of experience in the industry, which makes him a perfect spokesperson for the pre-mumble rap era. T-Pain didn’t throw shades at any song or rapper in particular. Nonetheless, he was still forced to defend his assessment in a follow-up post a few hours later.

“Notice I said “y’all don’t be liking THESE songs” y’all know what f__kin songs I’m taking about. If I was talking about any other era I would’ve said “THOSE songs” we on the same page but y’all ain’t reading between. Feel me?.”

— T-Pain (@TPAIN) May 10, 2021

While it’s hard to pinpoint who exactly started the mumble-rap movement, many have credited Future with the deed through his 2012 track “Tony Montana.” The rapper has previously revealed that he was under the influence while recording the song and has slurred his words. The trend has been adopted by a host of new hip-hop talents all across the world, and his showing no signs of slowing down.

The breakout hit that was produced by Will A Fool not only earned Future a promising Drake collab but also a place in hip-hop history. Sadly, the name Will A Fool doesn’t get the same recognition as Future. Nearly a decade has passed since the release of “Tony Montana,” yet Pain’s beckoning of fans to provide producers with the same love they show rappers is still prevalent.

Hopefully, his latest tweet will result in the likes of JetsonMade, Metro Boomin, SethInTheKitchen, J. White Did It, Wheezy, Supah Mario, Brandon Finessin, Section 8, 30 Roc, Take a Daytrip, ChopsquadDJ, Earl on the Beat, Tay Keith, and a host of others being household names.

Do you think producers should get more credit for hit songs?

While summer is known for its numerous parties and outdoor events, that may not be the reality for Jamaica in 2021.

Trey Songz Being Investigated For Alleged Hit-And-Run

A woman is accusing artist Trey Songz of hit-and-run in which she says he hit her car, leaving her suffering an injury to her hand before driving off.

The woman has reported the incident to the police, which has been confirmed by police according to Celebrity news site TMZ.

According to the police, what appeared to be an incident of road rage went a little too far as the “Na Na” singer and the woman were involved in an argument while they were sitting in their respective cars. The incident occurred around midnight on Thursday, police say.

The argument reportedly escalated, and the woman alleges that Trey Songz used his car to bump into the woman’s car. At this point, she gets out of her car to confront him, but she says he then speeds off, hitting her hand in the process.

She then reported the matter to the police who took a report. However, the artist had already left the scene of the accident.

Meanwhile, the artist has denied the allegations TMZ reported.

This latest incident is just one of a few incidents showing the artist having an uncontrollable anger problem. He’s presently facing a lawsuit for allegedly punching a bartender who was working at a Cardi B concert in 2019. Songz allegedly stood on the bar but became enraged after he was moved off, hitting the bartender in the head.

He also recently narrowly escaped charges after an altercation at a Kansas City playoff game with a police officer. That incident stemmed from the artist refusing to wear a mask.

50 Cent Already Picking Up Awards In Texas While Living His Best Life

50 Cent already making his presence felt in Texas after moving from the Tri-State area.

50 Cent seems to be fitting in well with his new home state, having finally decided to cut the cord on New York and moving to Texas. A week after making the announcement, the hip hop legend and movie producer shared his latest achievement on Saturday, a win in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, where his Le Chemin du Roi champagne was named Grand Champion in the International Wine Competition.

The artist shared his excitement with ABC 13 news. “When they told me I won, I almost fainted. I was really excited,” 50 said. “I am very proud of this.”

Two couples, Demetra and Frank Jones and Leticia and Stephen Trauber, jointly purchased the rapper’s wine for $160,000. He shared the details on his Instagram official account, which included a true Texas-style trophy- a large saddle with Reverse Grand Champion Best Of Show 2021 etched on the side near the Rodeo Houston logo.

The rapper said, “They told me everybody who’s somebody in Houston is at the @rodeohouston,” he wrote. “I won reserve grand champion best in show. #lecheminduroi.”

The rapper also shared his experience getting accustomed to the culture of his new home after he lost out on a bid for a wine. “Man there are some people in Texas that got a lot of money,” he wrote. “I bid $175,000 for a bottle of wine and i still lost.”

The rapper recently moved to Texas and shared over the past week that he is now a resident of Houston. He said he would explain to his fans later about his move, but his signal “#greenlightgang” is definitely a hint as to the real purpose of the artist’s move, as we know has everything to do with his latest contract with Starz for Black Mafia Family production.

50 Cent and Fat Joe Unite In Support Snoop Dogg’s Mother

50 Cent and Snoop Dogg rally to support Snoop Dogg and his family amid his mother’s sudden illness.

With Mother’s Day today, May 9, it must be a heart-wrenching time for veteran rapper Snoop Dogg. Just a few days ago, he took to Instagram to let fans know that his mom wasn’t doing well. He asked fans for their prayers even though he didn’t spell out exactly what her ailment was.

From his tone in the video and his urgency, it seems that she’s in some sort of dire circumstance. “Gotta stay strong, keep pushing on,” he said in one part of the video before adding: “They say God don’t put nothing on your shoulders you can’t handle. I’m being tested right now, y’all. Make sure y’all pray for me and my family.”

Snoop Dogg is a favorite in the Hip-Hop world, and soon fans from all over the globe, as well as fellow rap artists, started flooding the post with positive energy as they tried to give the “May Family” rapper support. Veterans like E-40, KXNG Crooked, Warren G, and others offered up their prayers.

In another post, Snoop wrote: “Mama thank u for having me could of gave me up but u raised a family.”

Earlier this month, Jay-Z also gifted Lebron James his own limited edition bottle. Lebron posted a video of the gift on his Instagram page while thanking the rapper.

D’ussé cognac special edition bottles are worth thousands of dollars. A signed bottle of the 1969 Anniversaire edition reportedly sold for $52,000 at a Sotheby’s auction back in March.

DJ Khaled’s album has already been racking up numbers on all major platforms. In the first week of its release, the album secured 95,000 album equivalent sales. It is expected to debut at number 1 atop the Billboard 200 chart.

“Khaled Khaled” features 29 rappers and singers on 13 songs. The featured acts include Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, and Nas. Several Dancehall acts such as Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, and Buju Banton are also featured.

Several of the album’s music videos were filmed on location in Jamaica. Khaled has so far released six music videos while promising that more are on the way.

Lil Uzi Vert & JT Heats Up The Cover Of Arena Homme +’s, Fans React

Lil Uzi Vert and JT only recently went public with their romance, but the rappers are now ready to flaunt their relationship with a sexy photoshoot. 

Posing for a new magazine cover, the couple appeared on Arena Homme+ in their underwear. The picture shows JT lovingly stroking Uzi’s chest and stomach as she gazes up at him with adoration. Lil Uzi Vert, on the other hand, wears a digitally enhanced diamond on his forehead and a look of vague confusion. While the picture was a big step for their relationship, the cover seems to have inspired more questions than congratulations.

The first and most obvious detail of the photograph that has fans confused is the unrealistic height difference between Uzi and JT.  Uzi is known to be fairly short, maybe only a few inches taller than JT. However, the photo makes him out to be at least a foot taller than his girlfriend. Fans spotted the difference immediately, posting the glaring question, “What they got him standing on?”

Other people were too distracted by Uzi’s face to notice the height debacle. He does appear to have a dumbfounded expression and his face almost seems out of place entirely.  “Why it look like they photo shopped his head on his body,” asked one person.  “He couldn’t make another face,” remarked another.

The somewhat odd picture was not the only published photo from the Homme+ shoot, however.  The fashion magazine also featured a closeup of Uzi, a rapper who has earned his title as a hip hop fashion icon.

It is not uncommon for rappers to receive criticism when they venture into the world of high fashion, and this may just be another instance of a visual aesthetic flying over the heads of some music fans.  Either way, JT and Uzi seem to be lucky in love and there is nothing wrong with showing off their good fortune.

Jada Kingdom Addresses Suicide Rumors & Speak On Weight Loss

Jada Kingdom has once again taken to social media to address rumors claiming that she tried to commit suicide.

The dancehall singer took to Instagram live, alongside a friend, to speak about several stories that have been circulating in the media in recent weeks. The first issue she touched on was rumors of her having had plastic surgery. Jada Kingdom said, “Bear in mind a so gyal born, shape good run inna the family.”

Checking to ensure that her friend was understanding her patois, Jada Kingdom continued, “Shape good run inna the family. Wi never just walk and just pick it up so, a God gi wi. So it did unda deh areddi, girl did just thicka dan she fi thick. And gyal did look nice from morning. Period.”

“So everybody inna mi inbox a talk bout how mi do surgery pon mi stomach, f**k you!” the singer added.

Jada Kingdom then went on to make a shocking revelation, telling viewers that she had been diagnosed with diabetes in 2016, in addition to suffering from bipolar depression. She said, “I was eating a bunch of foolishness, everything fried. Rice was my best friend.” She explained that her weight would fluctuate weekly, and due to being depressed nothing mattered to her.

“I was ready to die,” the singer said. “To be honest mi give thanks fi Verse because if a neva fi Verse, honestly mi feel like mi woulda like lost certain way. Verse literally is like one of the best thing weh eva happen to mi inna mi entire f**king life.”

She spoke on eating better, doing liquid diets, becoming a pescatarian for over two years, and generally starting to take better care of her body. Now that she is a better version of herself, Jada said people are just stuck on who she was in the past.

Addressing rumors of skin bleaching, she stated, “Mi nah bleach. Eat clean, live clean, pray, trust God, that’s it.” She again dismissed rumors that she was doing drugs, saying her personality is just naturally lit. The singer recently posted another video on her Instagram story where she cursed out haters for spreading rumors that she was taking cocaine.

Jada also dispelled rumors that she was beefing with another female artiste, saying, “I ain’t got no beef with nobody.”

On the matter of her alleged hospitalization and subsequent suicide watch placement, the Dancehall singer said this was an outright lie. “This rumor was going around, saying I was in the hospital, that I tried to commit suicide, that’s a lie. That’s a f**king lie. I needed a social media detox and I took a two week break and that was the best two weeks of my f**king life. You guys should try it,” she added.

The singer ended her live video by warning fans to be careful who they trust. She also encouraged persons interested in music not to give up, as they will encounter challenges and have failures, but they should remain determined.

On a lighter note, Jada and her friend also showed off some dancing skills as she hopped onto Spice’s #GoDownDeh challenge. Wining her waistline and showing some serious knee strength, Jada bellowed, “Yuh nuh bad like mi Spice, Yuh nuh bad like me,” while her friend cheered her on. Sadly Jada wasn’t able to keep up as she hilariously fell over onto the ground.

Spice reposted the IG Live clip and added the caption, “@jadakingdom yuh see me ? Mi don’t trouble people until dem trouble me, and yuh see how mi never trouble you and yuh call up mi name say mi no bad like Yuh? Aright den WATCH MI AND YUH (When mi wake up later) #godowndehchallenge get serious now.”

The two artists have a beautiful friendship that is blossoming right before their fans’ eyes, and they love every minute of it. Spice has now promised to go Live on Instagram to take Jada on, and her bevy of fans are already declaring her the winner.

Nicki Minaj’s “LLC” Hit No. 1 As Her Fans Rally Behind The Single

It’s been a minute since fans heard anything new from rapper Nicki Minaj, but now she has a number one single.

Of course, she featured on a few tracks in 2019 and 2020 as a guest, but she hasn’t dropped a solo effort since her last studio album, Queen, in 2018. That’s primarily because she’s in sort of a pre-retirement phase, having said that she’s taking time to focus on her family and raising her newborn son with her husband, Kenneth Petty.

That isn’t stopping her ascendency on the charts, though. Even though she’s basically out of the game somehow, she’s still scoring hits. Thursday night, May 7, Nicki Minaj hit single “LLC” was given a sudden push by her loyal fans, aka the Barbz. The love from her fans has pushed “LLC” into the Top 30 on US iTunes for the first time.

According to social media page, Rap God, “LLC” becomes Nicki Minaj’s best performing single Globally in 2021 in just 8 hours.”

The Barbz made it their priority to try and encourage their leader to put out new music. So they got together and launched the “LLC Party” on Twitter. Soon after, the initiative “LLC Party” became the No. 1 trending topic in the United States and worldwide with over 133,000 tweets. Even Doja Cat encouraged the Brabz by telling them to stream the song on her Instagram Story.

The track also entered the Top 40 of the iTunes US Chart for the first time since its release some three years ago. Her fans could also be responding to Joe Budden’s call for her not to release music right now. In other words, Joe Budden thinks that Nicki Minaj should extend her hiatus from music. He made the statements during an episode of The Joe Budden Podcast where he, Mal, and Rory were discussing whether DJ Khaled’s Khaled Khaled was a hit or miss.

“Did you not just hear everything we said about Khaled dropping during COVID,” Budden asked Mal. “You want Nicki to drop right now? Nicki, I love you, I wish you and your family well, and that’s what I got.” It seems the fans have spoken, and they are patiently awaiting Nicki’s new music, if it’s even in the works.

Doja Cat says “Keep Streaming LLC For Good Dick”

Nicki Minaj Should Extend Her Hiatus From Music Says Joe Budden

After years of hitmaking and trendsetting, Nicki Minaj decided to take a well-earned break from her explosive career to spend time with her new husband and baby boy. Since her conspicuous absence from music, fans have continuously expressed their eagerness for new material.  However, not everyone agrees that it is the right time for the Barbz to return to the rap game. 

On a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, Joe, Rory, and Mal debated about Nicki’s return to the scene after reviewing DJ Khaled’s newly dropped project, Khaled Khaled.

Confident that the world is ready for a Nicki Minaj comeback, Mal declared, “It’s time.  It’s time for a Nicki album.” Joe Budden was clearly surprised by Mal’s opinion, replying, “Did you not just hear everything we said about Khaled dropping during COVID? You want Nicki to drop right now?” 

Clarifying that his opinion doesn’t necessarily reflect poorly on Nicki, Joe added, “Nicki, I love you, I wish you and your family well, and that’s what I got.”  It seems Budden thinks that dropping an album right now is a poor business decision, but Minaj fans are likely to disagree.

Many people in the hip hop world have been discussing Nicki Minaj’s place in music recently, particularly since critics and influencers have a hard time not pitting female rappers against each other. Since we are beginning to see increasingly more women rappers have just as much success as their male counterparts, fans and industry commentators are also more tempted to rank and categorize the ladies of rap instead of seeing them as the dynamic and multi-faceted forces that they are.

RELATED: Joe Budden To The Grammys, “Nicki Minaj Needs Her Flowers”

However, rapper Russ recently took to Twitter to make a strong point about the timing of Nicki Minaj’s career, saying, “Imagine if TikTok was out during Nicki Minaj blowin up era…numbers woulda been astronomical lmao.  Did it on em, only, anaconda, twerk it, FEELING MYSELF Man, soooo many like bruh lmao sh*t was already outta here but that woulda been insane lol.” 

It’s true that Nicki has some of the most memorable and highly animated rap songs of the last couple decades, so it is easy to imagine the endless TikTok dances she would have inspired.  But of course, it is never too late to make a Nicki Minaj track go viral on TikTok!

50 Cent On Being In Juvenile Detention At 15: “I made a lot of mistakes”

50 Cent shared a photo of himself in Juvenile Detention when he was 15 years old while alluding to his troubled past.

The rap icon is among one of the most successful rappers turned businessmen in the music industry, and his artistic ability is just beginning as his creative genius as a television producer shows how multitalented he is.

50 Cent‘s journey, though, has not been without its challenges that are not exactly unique to him as an African American man. The rapper delved into the past as he shared an earlier memory as a teenager when he was in a Juvenile Detention Center.

The “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” rapper posted a throwback photo of himself at a juvenile detention center when he was just 15 years old.

In the caption, 50 Cent reflected on the harsh childhood he experienced growing up in South Jamaica, Queens, New York, a neighborhood that is plagued by gang violence and drug dealing that led to his earlier decisions in life. He also paid tribute to his late grandmother, who was there for him.

“Yo i was 15 in this picture,” he wrote. “on the South Side you have to grow up faster. I made a lot of mistakes I was already in juvie, I remember my Nana coming to see me, she is my angel. she love me unconditionally.”

A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent)

The rapper has spoken about his past many times, even as he is now an inspiration for many people. His life was one characterized by hardship. He was raised by his mother, a drug dealer who later died in a fire while he was 8 years old. He was then raised by his grandmother and began boxing at a neighborhood gym at 11 years old. But his life wasn’t as simple as it sounded. At 12 years old, he was selling crack cocaine even as his grandparents thought he was in after-school programs.

While that became a constant part of his life, he was also his grandmother’s “baby” as he once said when talking about toughing it out in the streets at his age but being loved by his grandmother. In 2015, he spoke about living with his grandmother – “I was outside hustling but I still had to talk my grandmother into letting me walk home from school myself. I said to her ‘Look, I’m bigger than you know.’”

His grandmother passed away in 2014, and he noted that her death had a phenomenal impact on him. “she was the love of my life.”

He has also shared many hilarious moments he shared with his grandmother with his fans, including one in a tweet while he was at her house and she made him take out the trash- “I can’t [believe] my grand mothers [sic] making me take Out the garbage. I’m rich f**k this I’m going home I don’t need this sh*t.”

Konshens Announces New Project “Konshens Remix Pack”

Dancehall hitmaker Konshens was full of surprises today when he offloaded the “Konshens Remix Pack.”

As the name suggests, the project involves the dancehall deejay adding fiery verses and previously unheard vocals on popular local and international tracks. Konshens wears his creativity on his sleeve for this one, providing fans with 9 tracks of pure heat. The “Winner” singer gave fans a taste of his remixing abilities a decade ago when he dropped his version of Kelly Rowland, Lil Wayne, and DJ Drama’s 2011 hit single “Motivation.”

His track titled “Different” focused on switching things up in the bedroom, a core theme of many of the deejay’s songs. The same lesson is taught on this surprise release, which his team labeled as “a DJ pack for DJs and fans.”

The first track owes its beat to Kalan.FrFr’s song “Scoring.” Track 2 is all about his 2012 hit “Gal A Bubble” being refitted to match the beat of African super-star Wizkid’s 2019 hit “Joro.”

Konshens also layers his lyrics over songs such as Mooski’s “Track Star,” Wizkid, and Burna Boy’s “Ginger”, on which Projexx is featured, and an ode to his teenage daughter via Coi LeRay’s “No More Parties.”

Notably, Konshens has officially answered the calls of fans who were urging the deejay to remix Dexta Dap’s “Call Me If” in November last year.

The calls came after Konshens did an unofficial remix of the track that inspired a ‘Call Me If Challenge’ when Dexta Daps re-posted the video on his own Instagram page.

The remix not only found favor with fans but also with several other Dancehall entertainers including, Beenie Man, Demarco, Bounty Killer, and Kemar Highcon. Fans commented that they could not imagine the song being any better until Konshens’ remix. In addition, many fans claimed, even while the challenge started to gain traction, that Konshens had already won.

Fans are, therefore, happy to see deejay’s third track, “Call Me If Nuttin,” being the official remix to Dexta Dap’s 2020 single. Shaneil Muir flourished in 2020, and her track “3D” had a lot to do with that. It was simply a no-brainer from Konshens to trade lyrics with the sassy Shaneil on this one.

The project was aided on its way with work from his current manager Silent Addy – Bashment Records, along with Disco Neil, who engineered the project.

Konshens is impressively making big moves, having his name circulating in the media over the last three weeks following the release of “Pay For It,” featuring the queen of dancehall, Spice.

The song has been propagating wildly across platforms since its release on April 15, so much that the song is still trending on YouTube. Fans are predicting a successful and productive year for the deejay.

Meek Mill Shares Photo Of His Son Czar With Milano Flexing Big Chain & Burberry

Meek Mill son with Milano is flexing his jewelry and designer gears.

On the eve of his first birthday, Meek Mill is celebrating his baby boy. The rapper took to Instagram to celebrate the significant milestone today (May 5). In the celebratory post shockingly accompanied by a photo of Czar, Meek said, “Happy bday czar love you tomar your first big day!!!! [diamond emojis] can’t wait to see you love you!!!” Czar is pictured wearing a white button-front shirt that is open, blue jeans, Burberry bucket hat, and diamond chains.

The baby boy is Meek Mill’s son from a short-lived relationship with entrepreneur and designer Milan Harris, also known as Milano. The two secretly dated for several months before it was revealed that she was carrying the rapper’s child. Unfortunately, they separated shortly after the child’s birth in July of last year.

Addressing the breakup, Meek Mill at the time said, “Me and Milano decided to remain friends and build our child as separate parents … we still have mad love for each other but we both came to a understanding.”

A post shared by Meek Mill (@meekmill)

He added, “no fall out either just moving forward! Still love! This for protection so social media wont think we moving wrong.”

Prior to dating Milano, Meek Mill dated Nicki Minaj. The couple dated for two years before breaking it off in 2016. Minaj subsequently married Kenneth Petty in October 2019. They recently welcomed a baby boy of their own last September.

Czar is Meek’s third child. The rapper has two sons – Murad and Rihmeek from a previous relationship.

Czar shares his birthday with his dad, who will be turning 34 years old tomorrow. In announcing the birth of his baby boy last year, Meek mentioned that they shared a special bond. He tweeted, “Milano dropped me off a king on my birthday! #thebestgift”

Fans have joined in with Meek Mill in celebrating his son. One Instagram user commented, “Awww he look like Papi… happy birthday big boy.” Another commented, “He’s so adorable [heart emojis].”

Fans also highlight that this is the first time they’ve gotten a glimpse of the baby. They have now gone on to speculate that Meek and Milano must be having a fallout as they doubt she granted him permission to post the photo. Since his birth, Milano has made it a point to disguise the baby’s identity in photos.

Either way, we’re all glad we finally got to set our eyes on their adorable baby boy. Happy birthday, Czar!

G Herbo Hit With New Charge For Lying To Feds in Fraud Case: Reports

The U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts has filed another charge against G Herbo as his fraud case gets underway.

G Herbo, whose real name is Herbert Wright III, has been charged for lying and failing to notify authorities that he is familiar with one of his co-defendants in the ongoing fraud case. Herbo allegedly lied to a federal agent while he was being interviewed.

According to the authorities, Herbert Wright III, also known as Herbo, Lil Herb and G Herbo-(his most common rap moniker), and ‘Herbert Light,’ “knowingly and willfully made the following materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements and representations in a matter within the jurisdiction of the executive branch of the Government of the United States, that is, during a voluntary interview with a special agent of the United States Secret Service and a special agent of the (FBI),” the document reads, according to The Shade Room.

The co-defendant in question is Antonio Strong, who is a known friend and business associate of G Herbo. The charges read that G Herbo did not tell the federal agent interviewing him that he gave Strong money nor that he received anything of value from him, and he also denied a direct connection to Strong.

The FBI alleges that G Herbo and Strong have been friends since 2016, and the two shared a close relationship with frequent contact. It is also alleged that he gave Strong money and received “private jet charters, luxury accommodations, and exotic car rentals” from him in exchange.

Now, the authorities are moving to connect the current charge against Herbo to the original fraud case. There should be no issues with doing this, as Herbo had signed an earlier document approving this. It’s unclear what his defense position is regarding the new charge.

The rapper is slated to return to court as he answers to the charges, which alleged that he is part of a multimillion fraud ring that used stolen credit card information to pay for luxury items, including a lavish vacation to Jamaica last year. His ex-girlfriend Ari Fletcher is reportedly a prosecution witness in the case.

DJ Akademiks Alleges Gucci Mane’s Wife Keyshia Ka’oir & Yo Gotti Dated

DJ Akademiks is often known for saying controversial things. Some of his rants often irk the personalities he discusses, and now it seems that he is rehashing an old rumor about Gucci Mane’s wife that fans of the rapper are not happy about.

In a discussion, DJ Akademiks brought up that Keysha Ka’oir allegedly slept with Yo Gotti while Gucci Mane was locked up. He used that alleged rumor as an example to set the tone for his discussion as he asked his co-panelist how they would react to their wife’s past if it was similar.

“all these n****s up in here can’t get over a girl’s past. Gucci had to. Would yall get over your girl’s past that she F**d a n***a… would yall wife- let’s put it to a random girl, like Shaquesha, you wifing Shaquesha if you get locked up and she fucks your man who lives across town that yall kinda OK but I ain’t saying yall off but she knows y’all homies a lil bit?” he asked.

The respondents to the discussion did not agree with Akademiks that there would be a problem with being with a woman like that. However, another person can be heard saying “shoutout to Gucci Mane’s wife as he believed she was a different type of woman and didn’t belong in that conversation.

A woman can also be heard joining the conversation and is heard saying they should use another couple in the industry as Keysha Ka’oir is not in the industry. However, Akademiks didn’t agree with the woman.

“Hold on now, I’ma be really respectful as I talk about this. Because if we really talking about Gucci and his wife, a lot of yall n****a know Gucci is wildin’, Y’all know allegedly Gucci wife while he was locked up slept with Yo Gotti. Right? Allegedly,” he emphasized.

“That’s why he cussed Angela Yee out if y’all noticed Let me ask y’all now, Gucci’s wife is a queen I agree but all y’all n***gas up in here can’t get over a girl’s past but Gucci had to. Would y’all get over y’all girl’s past?”

Akademiks goes on to say that at the time of the alleged incidents he is speaking of, “Gucci was f***ing mad bitches but the girl he was always gonna settle down for that he had extra shit for was Keysha Ka’oir. Anyway…he wasn’t with the whole time, he was also running around a little and when she decided to do her a little bit she was with allegedly-Yo Gotti. Most of Y’all demonize any firl that was ever with another rapper that y’all can recognize. Gucci married this girl because he realized she was a good girl who held it down and who also helped him out with a lot of shit. Y’all couldn’t get over that,” he said.

Akademiks later clarified that the pair was not together when Keysha allegedly was involved with Yo Gotti.

It’s unclear what the entire conversation was about and why Akademiks chose to bring Gucci Mane and Keysha Ka’oir up in the conversation. A 10-minute screen recording of Akademiks YouTube channel was posted on a Reddit thread as fans discussed how long they thought before Guwop went after Akademiks for disrespecting his wife.

The other part of the conversation also discussed Saweetie and Quavo’s break up and the material things in the relationship, such as the Birkin bags and the luxury cars he gifted to her.

Later in the conversation, Akademiks also went on to discuss how much Keysha Ka’oir helped Gucci Mane as he went through jail for seven years, his rehab journey or even using his money to invest so that he can have money when he returned from jail.

“Gucci is a demon he prolyl f**ked every girl in the industry, she got past that…he gotta atleast get past that because she didn’t cheat. They weren’t together. Gucci was in the streets. So I can’t knoc Gucci for that. You know how hard it is to get a chick that’s gonna hold you down despite the other bullshit? You can find any girl to f***k but you won’t a girl who gon hold you down when you can’t physically there, who gon make sure your mama taken care.”

Minister Marion Hall Says Critics Are Why She Don’t Post More Photos

Minister Marion Hall, formerly Lady Saw, says social media critics are to be blamed for her not wanting to share more photos.

The former Queen of Dancehall, who is now a minister, has once again sparked controversy about how a Christian should be adorned, following a now-deleted post on social media. The former “Queen of the Dancehall” posted a picture of herself on Instagram on Monday, April 4, clad in a white mini dress showing some serious cleavage. She paired her outfit with a plaid jacket, a white handbag, and heels creating a look that shocked many.

In the caption, she wrote, “I wanted to post my pictures from Saturday when I went out to eat by the beach, However, I held back because I know some of you will judge me over my outfit. Don’t even start!!!”

The picture has since been circulating on social media, with critics showing their distaste in the Minister’s outfit, while others expressed that it’s not their place to judge.

Some social media users speculated that the photo was reminiscent of her days as Dancehall veteran ‘Lady Saw,’ while others just found the photo “too sexy” for a minister.

Beneath Hall’s original post, fans and followers showed nothing less than love and appreciation, but perhaps the attention that the post had garnered led her to delete it some hours later.

This is not the first time that the Minister has come under public scrutiny for her attire, and perhaps, it was these same critics she was warning, “don’t even start!”

In early February, the gospel deejay had to clap back at critics who condemned her for wearing a low-cut blouse. The Minister, who was in Miami on a lunch date with her friends, captioned that post, ‘Public service announcement for the holier-than-thou fashion police, Minister Marion Hall is a sexy Christian.”

Hall later posted a video on social media addressing the trolls who questioned her faith, saying, “God cares for what is behind the heart…not my boobs. If that’s all you see I guess they look good right? I’m still a Christian. I’m still Marion, not Lady Saw.… I’m so blessed and I love my body… I’m a sexy Christian.”

However, amid the recent criticisms, Hall says she will be holding back on what she shares on social media. What do you think of her latest photo?

Yungeen Ace Details His Encounter With 6ix9ine At His Show

Yungeen Ace is continuing to deny that he had a run-in backstage with fellow rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine during the rapper’s concert.

In and Instagram live stream with DJ Akademiks, 6ix9ine claimed that Florida rapper Yungeen Ace was backstage his show in Miami last week. 6ix9ine also claimed that the rapper, who he’s had beef with, walked right by him and did not step to him.

The beef between the two first started when Yungeen Ace called out Tekashi 6ix9ine for snitching and said he didn’t respect him. Ace did make a point, however, that he would work with 6ix9ine if given the opportunity as it was just business. Needless to say, the comment didn’t sit well with Tekashi, who was recently released from prison after serving a reduced sentence in exchange for his testimony which implicated several members of his former gang.

Speaking in the interview with DJ Akademiks, Tekashi said, “F*ck all that. Yungeen Ace was at my show yesterday. F*ck all of the things that we talking about. Street rappers were at my show yesterday. If they want the static, I was there. He was at the show. He was backstage, he seen me, everything.”

The “Who I Smoke” rapper responded to Tekashi on his Instagram story, sharing the post with 6ix9ine’s claim and writing, “Mann dis ni**a so cap bra [laughing emoji]..wdf.”

Yungeen Ace’s denial story was sadly short-lived, as DJ Akademiks, who the rapper has also had beef with, later dug up a photo that showed the rapper was indeed at the Trillerfest event where Tekashi performed.

Yungeen Ace later explained the encounter in a live stream, saying he did see Tekashi, but the encounter did not quite happen how 6ix9ine said it did.

In the video, Ace said, “that ni**a was scared as f**k man.. then the nigga said he ain’t know me but he seen me in there. These ni**as trippin. This ni**a was in a car. This ni**a rolled past only time I seen this guy.”

Ace went on to say that Tekashi was masked up, with his chains tucked, and he was basically hiding in his car.

Fans have since been calling out Ace, stating that he’s a straight-up liar. One user commented, “Thought he wasn’t there?” while another added, “You said you never seen him.”

On the other hand, one Tekashi 6ix9ine supporter declared, “THEY ALL TALK HOT ON THE INTERNET BUT CAN’T EVEN TOUCH HIM IN REAL LIFE.”

Fans are now anxiously awaiting 69’s response to the ‘he said, he said’ saga.

Govana And Fivio Foreign Link Up For A “Movie”

Govana and Fivio Foreign drop the visual for their new collaboration, “Movie.”

While Jamaica remains under curfew, the dancehall hitmaker traveled to Brooklyn to shoot the video with fast-rising New York rapper Fivio Foreign. The JLShotThat-directed cut saw Govi pulling up to a block party where Fivio and his crew were enjoying refreshments with plenty of females strutting their stuff. The cut was shot last month, and the two artists have been teasing it over the past several weeks.

“See me out with me army we do this all day / Nineties to conace nah say floss yeah / Hallow tip in a the cartridge fi the 40 / Me a roll with some Haitians so braff yeah / Get paid in six figure tell a b*tch ni**a / Next time address me by me last name,” Govana spits.

Govana has cemented himself as one of the leading artists of the current generation of dancehall acts. The 4th Genna deejay has been steadily building out his catalog over the past few years while showing both class and experience anytime he decides to put out a record.

Fivio Foreign spent the last decade steadily building a name for himself in the hip hop scene. He was originally known as Lite Fivio while rapping in the underground scene in New York, but would later change his name to Fivio Foreign in 2013. The move proved to be good for the now 31-year-old rapper who has since scored some big hits, including his appearance on Drake’s “Demons” last year, which peaked at 34 on the Hot 100 chart.

Alkaline’s “Top Prize” Album Tops Streaming Charts Ahead Of Release

Alkaline says his sophomore album shows growth and experience as the body of work making its presence felt on international charts ahead of its release.

With several weeks to go before the release of his second studio album, Alkaline is already dominating the charts. His album Top Prize is the #1 pre-ordered album on all major streaming platforms, including Amazon and iTunes. Alkaline’s fans have been showing up for the artiste as they await the May 14 release of the album.

As of the time of this publication, the album was #1 in pre-orders internationally and for the Reggae charts on Amazon. Sales have also landed “Top Prize” in the best selling charts in Amazon’s Caribbean category.

On the iTunes platform, “Top Prize” secured the top prize, peaking at number 1 on the US Reggae Album chart. It also peaked at the #2 spot on the global all genres chart before falling into #4 for worldwide pre-order sales.

This is a big deal for the Vendetta artiste, who recently secured his place in history when he became the first Jamaican and Caribbean artiste to perform on streaming service Audiomack’s Acoustic, visual series. Alkaline performed the song “Cree,” which is one of the 14 tracks to be featured on his upcoming album.

The performance, which is featured on Audiomack’s YouTube channel, is #6 on Trending in Jamaica and has more than 238,000 views.

In another history-making move, the “Ocean Wave” singer also became the face of Spotify’s first Caribbean-focused playlist. The “Back A Yard” playlist was released following Spotify’s major expansion into 83 additional countries.

In addition to the track titled “Top Prize,” Alkaline’s album will feature works such as “Medicine,” “Payroll,” “Ocean Wave,” “More Life,” “Hostage,” and “Cree.” Fans are already debating and forecasting which track will be their favorite.

“Top Prize,” the single, has already been making waves of its own, amassing millions of streams across multiple platforms. The song has over 2.5 million views on YouTube alone.

Alkaline’s PR rep, Shuzzr, told Urban Islandz, “The level of artistry, growth and dominance Alkaline has demonstrated over the years is incomparable. As an independent artist he continues to break barriers globally and expand the genre’s footprint in mainstream and new media markets; in the coming weeks he will give fans a ‘soulful jam’ of tracks. Our client’s product and approach is meticulous and the results can be seen from the respect and support he receives from his fans worldwide.”

Shuzzr added, “The level of artistry, growth and dominance Alkaline has demonstrated over the years is incomparable.”

Alkaline says that the project is a reflection of his growth and experience after being in the music industry for a decade. “This album is timely as with my experiences, the lessons learned and growth overtime, it is only fair that I bring everything full circle,” Alkaline told us. “All the Detta fans who have been a part of the movement from day one will appreciate it and even those who have just come to realize the fact will enjoy it… It bad! Lol.”

Alkaline’s debut album “New Level Unlocked” peaked at #1 on the Billboard Reggae chart in 2016. It also spent 18 consecutive weeks on the chart. With fans already showing heavy support for “Top Prize,” it will be interesting to see how it truly compares in the coming weeks.

Jada Kingdom Finds A Way To Drop New Music Amid Lawsuit

When you can’t beat them, join them. It seems dancehall singjay Jada Kingdom has decided to follow this old adage in hopes of getting away from her current record label. She’s reportedly found a loophole that she believes will help her to start back releasing new music as she continues to battle against her former manager.

Earlier this year, in February, she opened up about some of the obstacles she was facing. She also let fans know that she wouldn’t be releasing music anytime soon, mostly because of what she called “industry politics” and a lack of management.

The “Green Dreams” singer has somehow found a way to put out new music. She elatedly shared the news with her followers on Instagram yesterday (May 3).
“Since I can’t release any new music yet, mi aguh remix some of my fav songs right now,” she wrote in an Instagram Story. “Let’s go crazy!” she added. She also revealed what the first remix would be.

Jada shared that the first remix, due any day now, will be “D’yani’s Feelings,”. As with most loopholes, there’s a catch. “The artist of the original song will be uploading my remix,” Jada Kingdom said, before adding “YOUTUBE ONLY. Badmind yuh cyah stop mi!!!”

Jada Kingdom received a lot of media attention recently, mostly because of an ongoing legal battle with her former management team, Pop Style. She was with the company for the last four years. Even though it’s not clear when they became angry with each other, the company has already filed a defamation lawsuit against the artist. The lawsuit, which was filed last month, claims that she allegedly made libelous remarks about them during an Instagram Live video.

During that Live, Jada shared her excitement about having found a new management team.

“Mi excited fi see how everything a go turn out. Mi cya wait fi drop new music,” she said. “Mi waiting, just ready fi go crazy as I should have been doing from day f**king one… There’s just so much sh*t and how mi get by is creating music, laughing, see the good inna everything regardless. Everything a go work out,” she continued.
