Alkaline is trolling Tony Matterhorn amidst a one-year ban on his music.
After weeks of being silent, Matterhorn snapped last weekend at a party where he declared that a ban on Alkaline music for the rest of the year is in order. The veteran sound system selector hurled some expletives at the Vendetta deejay and his fans in an act of defiance amidst criticism. “Me say me a give Alkaline one year bom***** ban, who no like it s*** your mother,” he told the crowd before dropping Vybz Kartel single “InfraRed.”
Moments after the clip went viral, Alkaline posted a video of a young fan wilding-out to his 2016 smash hit “Champion Boy.” If this is not a clear sign that the beef between these two is nowhere near over, then perhaps it’s one big publicity stunt. It’s not the later, we’re told Tony Matterhorn is really angry and feels disrespected the way Alkaline dealt with the situation in Florida last month. This is just his way of venting his anger rather than getting into a physical confrontation which could end badly for all parties.
“He is just being the bigger man and he is the bigger man so this is just his way of sending a message rather than taking up a gun and behave badly,” a rep for the disc jockey said.
Tory Lanez announced the release date for his upcoming project Memories Don’t Lie.
The Canadian singer will be releasing his forthcoming album in less than two month, 39 days to be exact. Tory Lanez crack the mainstream market two years ago his island flavored project “I Told You” but since then he has been a bit silent on the music scene leaving fans yearning for his next body of work. Over the past months he has been teasing some new singles believed to be part of the upcoming project.
“MEMORIES DONT DIE – 3/2 …. 39 DAYS LEFT,” Lanez wrote on Instagram while announcing a March 2, 2018 release date for the album Memories Don’t Life. The singer also revealed a trailer for the project showing him standing in front of a G Wagon SUV. “A real father wants to know that by the time there child hits, you know 22, 25, you would love to know that your child gone so far beyond anything you’ve ever accomplished,” a voice over said in the short clip.
He also showed some clips from his childhood and images of himself as a father with his own son. The trailer help builds the hype around the project in a year when there are some highly anticipated hip hop albums. So far we’ve heard three singles that will potentially be on the album including “Real Things” with Future.

Rick Ross shut down his baby mama Tia Kemp after she ousted him as a bad father.
Rozay posted a picture of himself and his beautiful daughter and Kemp immediately posted a few messages on her IG story ousting the rap mogul as a bad father. She wanted to know why he hasn’t visited their son in over six months. Usually Rick Ross ignore her rants on social media about him but this time it seems she struck a chord when she brought his close friend and former manager Black Bo, who passed away in December, into their feud.
“You would think after finding ya best friend Black dead n ya crib last month would make u wanna cleanse ya heart,” she wrote. “But the ppl around u won’t tell u wats right So I will.. U riding with the Devil.” Sources told us that didn’t sit well with Rock Ross who felt like she is being a thorn in his side for months and its now time to put her in her place.
“Seems everytime I post a picture of me with my beautiful daughter, she always has some negative energy, so I want to clear this up,” Ross said. “Just because her mother beat your ass she has nothing to do with that, take that ass whooping like a champ that ain’t got nothing to do with her… It’s all love you can’t feed all of your ten siblings off my little man.”
Rick Ross daughter and Tia Kemp got into a fight a few years back so perhaps that was what Rozay was referring to. The MMG rapper and his baby mama had a previous running in October last year.

Hip-Hop is mourning the death of rapper Fredo Santana who passed away this morning from kidney and liver failure.
Santana, whose real name is Derrick Coleman, was age 27 at the time of his death. The full details surrounding his death is not yet available to the public, but his close friend Maxo Kream confirmed his passing on Instagram just moments ago. “Damn man I’m lost for words right now I’m cryin my ass off Fredo I love yu B**ch RIP a real Savage,” Kream wrote.
Since then a number of his rap peers including Drake, Lil Pump, ASAP Twelvy, among others have posted their condolences on social media. “Rest In Peace Santana, Drizzy wrote while Twelvy added, “Forever honorable we gonna miss you Fredo. His large fan base have also been sharing their responses on Twitter with most folks in a state of disbelief over his death.
Fredo Santana is a product of the vibrant Chicago rap scene. He has worked with the likes of Drake, Lil Reese, Chief Keef, and Kendrick Lamar. One of his most recent songs is “Been Savage” released in the fall of last year and has been doing good. Fredo posted a photo of himself in the hospital in October last year after suffering kidney and liver failure. Seems he never recovered from his health problems. Last year September, he publicly ridiculed fellow rapper Russ speaking out against the rampant drug use in hip hop. “Until I can stop thinking bout my dead homies an the trauma that I been thru in my life that’s when I’ll stop,” he tweeted.

Ja Rule got time today. The New York rapper clap back at 50 Cent threat to knock him out on sight.
Someone on Twitter said 50 Cent and Ja Rule beef is old enough to drive and it’s true. These two rappers have been beefing for close to two decades and now they want to bring it back to the forefront of hip hop like we still living in 2003. Yesterday, Fiddy and his Den Of Thieves co-star Oshea Jackson Jr did an interview on Big Boy’s Neighborhood as they continue their promotional run for their new movie which is in theaters now.
Oshea brought Ja Rule up in the interview saying, “I told 50 when I met him ‘I like Ja Rule. I was a fan, then 50 Cent came out… I threw the [Ja Rule’s] CD right out my grandma car. It’s not for me. Nope!” Big Boy seized on the opportunity to ask 50 Cent if he ever ran into his old rap rival since the peak of their beef and if he ran into him now what would he do. Fif says says he would put Ja Rule to sleep on sight. He also admitted to taking the same flight as Ja once but he didn’t act on his instinct. “As soon as you get to the airport it becomes federal,” he said.
Ja Rule woke up this morning and felt like he needed to respond and created a Twitter frenzy in the moment with some fans thinking that they are trying to bring back that old beef. “Fun hip hop FACT: @50cent is PU***,” Rule tweeted before going on a tweeting spree about his old beef with Fif. “Lol you sure you want to do this ? You remember what happened last time?” one fan asked to which he responded, “Yeah I do @50cent got beat up, stabbed and shot what do you remember.”
@50cent says he will put #JaRule to sleep if he ever sees him ??? Fif and @osheajacksonjr here telling a funny ass story… #DenOfTheives – in theatres TOMORROW ??
Do you think 50 Cent and Ja Rule should just get into the boxing ring and settle this beef once and for all or should they go in the studio and record a couple diss tracks? Comment below.
Yeah I do @50cent got beat up, stabbed and shot what do you remember??? ? https://t.co/NDq3fLoLtr

Migos rapper Offset issued a lengthy apology for using a homophobic slur in his new song “Boss Life” with YFN Lucci.
The song was released last month and the video for the single was premiered earlier this week and since then Offset has come under fire for one line in his verse. “I cannot vibe with queers (hun hun), I got the heart of a bear (huh),” the Atlanta MC raps. Folks on Twitter attacked him mercilessly calling him homophobic among other things.
Offset has since come to his own defense by issuing an apology on Instagram while letting everyone know that he wasn’t referring to gay individuals when he used the word queer in his lyrics. “I didn’t write the line about gay people,” he wrote. “I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I’m not in a place where I’m hating like that.
Offset posted a screenshot of the meaning of the word taken from Google. “When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation,” he added. “To me that “queer” I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd. I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E I’m offended I offended anybody.”
Offset also spoke to his fans on IG Live where he further explains his stance on the issue and responded to the backlash.

Last year, Migos rapper Quavo also came under fire from some hip hop fans when he responded to a question about fellow rapper iLoveMakonnen coming out as gay. iLoveMakonnen received a lot of support from fans and when Quavo was asked about the support he has been receiving, he responded saying, “That’s because the world is f***** up.”
Cardi B has jump to Offset defense yet again amidst growing backlash from some fans.
The Migos rapper has been feeling the heat from fans today over a homophobic lyrics in his new single with YFN Lucci, “Boss Life.” One fan took it one step further to tell Cardi B that she deserves better and that proves to be a big mistake. We all know that Bardi is quick to clap back at fans on social media and this is no different except that she didn’t upload a video rant about it, just a simple response on Twitter.
“Cardi, you deserves someone better than Offset (I will always love you and respect your choices),” the fan wrote. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper quickly responded saying, “Don’t tell [me] about who I deserve with him or not you don’t know how he matured me. before I met him I ain’t had a lawyer, business management and I was insecure about my music he gave me confidence and help me get my business situated.”
She has since deleted that tweet, but not before folks got a screenshot of it. She also posted another tweet defending her response after some fans still wasn’t satisfied. “People are just too miserable for me I’m sorry I’m to blessed to be dealing with ya sh*t today. The negativity is not going to tarnish my feelings from these blessings and opportunities I’m getting. Have a good day.”

Drake started following his baby mama on Instagram and his fans are freaking out.
For months now an adult film star name Sophie Brussaux has been rumored to be pregnant for Drake. He has been silent on the reports while she has been posting baby bump photos on IG. Here is the tea, she recently gave birth and everyone have been holding their breath waiting to find out if he is really the father. Since giving birth, she made her Instagram private perhaps because she doesn’t want her baby photos go public.
Drake suddenly started following her (@SophieKnowsBetter) and some fans think that its a confirmation that he is the father of her baby. “So 6 God started following his baby mama on lol and then he wants to have us convinced that he is not the father, c’mon bro you have no street cred to lose if you just admit it,” one fan commented while a female fan added, “OMG Drake just followed that haux they say he knocked up am dying please tell me this is not real.”
Drake previously dated Rihanna and Maliah Michel. Last year he was linked to Jennifer Lopez and since the beginning of the year, he has been rumored to rekindle his relationship with actress Zoe Kravitz.

Future and Zaytoven hints at a possible Beast Mode 2 coming soon.
The producer uploaded a photo of himself and the Atlanta rapper on IG on Monday with the caption being peace sign emoji. Some fans took it as a confirmation that Beast Mode 2 is coming soon. This month marks three years since they dropped the first installment in the mixtape series. While neither gave any concrete confirmation, they drop enough hint to fuel rumors that the project is on the way and could arrive as early as this week.
During an interview last year, Zaytoven spoke about working on the follow up project with Future while alluding to the rapper’s busy schedule as part of the reason why fans have not gotten the second installment in the mixtape series. He also spoke about the chemistry in the studio between the two saying that the project left a hunger for them to continue working together. Last year alone Future released three projects which is a bit of the norm for the “Mask Off” rapper, so you can expect a ton of new music from him this year and hopefully that will start with Beast Mode 2.
Zaytoven and Future will make a cameo in the upcoming Sony film Superfly. They were both spotted on set recently with Director X, who is directing the movie starred by Jason Mitchell and Trevor Jackson. 21 Savage was also spotted on the set and the Freebandz emcee is task with producing the soundtrack.
Cardi B objected to Offset when he told her that he was going to get a tattoo of her.
The Migos rapper broke the number one rule on dating, never tattoo the name of the person you’re dating even if it’s your husband or wife. In this case, Cardi B and Offset are engaged, but still, people do break up and divorce rates are at an all-time high right now. Nevertheless, the Atlanta rapper hit up his favorite tattoo artist recently and got himself a tattoo of the “Bodak Yellow” rapper on his neck.
The tat depicts Cardi B as a Power Puff Girl with her name under it the image in large letters. Some fans think that Offset instantly lost all of his street creds the moment he debuts the new ink, while others think he is just plain old dumb. But sources are saying he just wanted to prove to her just how much she means to him even after she objected to it. “She was flattered but not too happy that he did and for a number of reasons because now this puts extra pressure on her to also get his name tatted on her and I don’t think she wants to get any more tattoos,” sources said. “Matter of fact she regrets the large one she has now and wished she could get read of it. A lot of people see her and her gangsta vibe, but she is not big on tattoos.
Dancehall HipHop was also told that Cardi B’s favorite cartoon growing up was Power Puff Girls and that’s the reason why Offset got a tattoo with that theme. The tat is also symbolic in that it shows her as a strong woman. Sources added that Bardi has since warmed up to the tattoo and feels the gesture shows her how much he loves her.
#offset gets Cardi B name tatted on him. Would u tattoo ur girl/man name on u?? At what point of the relationship would u do it? Via @theshaderoom
The tattoo comes in the wake of a cheating scandal plaguing the couple’s relationship after hackers hack his iCloud account and started leaking videos and photos. There is also a rumored explicit tape floating around of the two, prompting Cardi B to fire off a letter from her attorney to stop the leaking.
Joe Budden is insisting that Eminem new album is trash and now 50 Cent is threatening to put hands on him.
Just before his departure from Everyday Struggle last month, Joe Budden openly criticized Eminem new album Revival calling it trash. Despite getting heavy backlash from Em fans, the Slaughterhouse rapper stands firm about his remarks, insisting that it’s the worst music the Detroit rapper ever released throughout his entire career. The criticism is particularly striking given that Bidden has always been an Eminem ally.
Rappers like 50 Cent and D12 member Bizarre have been going after the rapper turn podcaster on social media. The G-Unit emcee took it a step further and threaten to give Joe a proper beat down when he sees him. “That was a bad idea, look you got a little ass whopping coming. It’s not a big deal, you will get over it. ?#denofthieves Jan 19,” 50 wrote while using the opportunity to promote his new movie Den of Thieves.
Joe Budden is now off Everyday Struggle and rumored to have a new show coming after signing a new deal with Revolt TV. Despite his harsh criticism of Revival, the album debut at No. 1 on Billboard 200 and is currently at No. 6 in its third week on the chart. The album sold 267,000 copies in the first week with 197,000 copies being from traditional album sales.
That was a bad idea, look you got a little ass whopping coming. It’s not a big deal, you will get over it. ?#denofthieves Jan 19
Cardi B has had enough of King Yella speaking bad on her name.
Over the past week, Chicago rapper King Yella has been slandering Cardi B on social media telling his fans that he got with her before she was famous and even before she hooked up with Offset. Dancehall HipHop reported last week that Offset called up Yella on FaceTime and threatened to put hands on him if he doesn’t leave his girlfriend alone and as expected that threatened was not taken seriously.
Cardi B is now speaking up for herself and not only did she denied having anything serious with him in the past, she also claimed that she only knows King Yella as an acquaintance of her ex-fiance Tommy. You can watch the expletives laced video clip she posted on IG below. Bottom line is, Bardi says she never indulged in anything inappropriate with the Chicago rapper who has been posting photos of them together on his IG profile.
Offset is reportedly very angry with Yella for talking smack about Cardi B and things could escalate into a full-on feud that could play out in the streets.

Chris Brown dropped a 45-track album in December and now he has a joint mixtape with Jacquees coming out.
Jacquees posted a video of himself and Breezy in the studio vibing to some new music while announcing that a joint project is on the way. “We dropping a mixtape f**k it,” he wrote. Breezy has been having an impressive run over the past few months and his hard work is paying off because the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) recently named him as one of the most successful R&B artists of all-time.
His massive Heartbreak on a Full Moon album was released in December with more than 45 songs and that project is already platinum. Last month, he was also awarded 40 plaques from the RIAA from some old and new songs that were certified gold and platinum but he never got his plaques.
Jacquees didn’t shed any more light on the new joint mixtape, so we don’t have a title or release date, but here is a video from their studio session.
Chris Brown also has some new music coming out with Joyner Lucas who announced on Twitter last week that the singer will be rapping on their new joint. “You ever heard Michael Jackson rap? Lol well Me and @chrisbrown got a lot of heat in the oven. No bull**** tho, breezy mite be my new favorite rapper. you’ll see,” he tweeted.
Last weekend, Chris Brown previews two new singles on Instagram that he has been working on since the start of the year. Let’s not for forget that he revealed in an interview in October that he has over 800 unreleased songs on his iPhone walking around with, so he is sitting on enough new music to release plenty albums for the rest of his career. Watch a clip below of Chris Brown and Jacquees in the studio.

Floyd Mayweather is feeling extra petty today and Conor McGregor is on his mind.
At the moment Mayweather is winning this ongoing beef between the fight fighters on the mere fact that he defeated McGregor in an actual fight last year and bank hundreds of millions of dollars on top of it. There are some fresh talks about a followup fight but this time it could be an MMA fight which Conor McGregor is advocating for. It’s still not clear if the boxing legend will come back out of retirement for that one, perhaps he will if the money is right.
On Wednesday, Floyd Mayweather tweeted a rumored story about Conor McGregor having issues with some Irish cartels and that there may be a hit out on his head. According to the reporting, McGregor allegedly punched a member of the Irish Cartel sometime last year and there is a hit out on his head for almost a million euros. “I already f***ed you up in 2017 now they about to f*** you up in 2018. You’re about to start your new year off with a bang,” the boxer tweeted.
McGregor has since responded to the tweet saying, “I am the cartel.” These two fighters should take this beef off of social media and into the ring, perhaps MMA style this time.
Just throw them both away ?? #FloydMayweather #ConorMcGregor
G-Eazy is the latest celebrity to cut ties with H&M amidst racist ad that went viral.
The fashion brand has been getting some heat on social media since yesterday after it posted an ad on social media that wrecks of racism. Several celebrities who have been doing business with H&M have since cut ties including The Weeknd, who announced in a scathing tweet that he will immediately end his partnership with the brand. G-Eazy announced on Instagram on Wednesday that he too will end his partnership.
“Over the past months I was genuinely excited about launching my upcoming line and collaboration with @HM… Unfortunately, after seeing the disturbing image yesterday, my excitement over our global campaign quickly evaporated, and I’ve decided at this time our partnership needs to end,” Eazy wrote. The rapper added that he cannot allow his name to be associated with H&M as the brand quickly becomes toxic to any celebrity that does business with the company.
“I can’t allow for my name and brand to be associated with a company that could let this happen. I hope that this situation will serve as the wake up call that H&M and other companies need to get on track and become racially and culturally aware, as well as more diverse at every level,” he added.
H&M has since released a statement apologizing for the ad while vowing to get to the bottom of what happened.
Over the past months I was genuinely excited about launching my upcoming line and collaboration with @HM… Unfortunately, after seeing the disturbing image yesterday, my excitement over our global campaign quickly evaporated, and I've decided at this time our partnership needs to end. Whether an oblivious oversight or not, it's truly sad and disturbing that in 2018, something so racially and culturally insensitive could pass by the eyes of so many (stylist, photographer, creative and marketing teams) and be deemed acceptable. I can't allow for my name and brand to be associated with a company that could let this happen. I hope that this situation will serve as the wake up call that H&M and other companies need to get on track and become racially and culturally aware, as well as more diverse at every level.
Kevin Gates is back home and already he is working on some new music.
The number one rule for rappers getting out of prison is to strike while the iron is hot. Kevin Gates has been trending on Twitter since his release from prison on Wednesday so what better time to drop some new music. Akademiks posted a video showing the Baton Rouge rapper at his home with some friends listening to some unreleased music.
Kevin Gates also posted a simple message for his fans on Instagram saying, “I’m him.” His fans on Twitter have been celebrating his return home but it’s still not clear when we will get some new music. Gates was sentenced to 30 months in prison for a gun charge in Illinois last year but only served 9 before he was released on parole. As a condition of his probation, he cannot be in possession of any firearm and music be supervised at all times.
At the very least we can expect an album from the Louisiana rapper this year now that he is free to hit the studio.
#kevingates officially out of prison and back home.
In December we got a new single from Dej Loaf titled “Big Ole Boss” and now she is hinting that her long-awaited album, Liberated, is ready.
The last solo body of work we received from Dej Loaf was her 2016 mixtape All Jokes Aside. Last year, she released a joint mixtape with Jacquees, F**k A Friend Zone. Though she has released at least four mixtapes and an EP since 2012, we’ve yet to get her long-awaited debut album. Last year she announced that she is working on a new project called Liberated but so far there have been no further details.
On Monday, Dej Loaf posted a preview of a new song on Instagram where she drops some hints about her upcoming album. “Express yourself it’s been building up gradually who ready for the album?” she wrote. In a recent interview with Paper magazine, she opened up about the pressure she has been feeling to deliver her best work yet.
“I think it’s been a year and a half since people have seen me,” she said. “I took that time off and I was working. You don’t know how they’re going to react. It’s definitely pressure, though. I just want to be who they saw me as, but also have them understand my growth in the music. That’s what I focused on this go-round.”
Listen to a preview of her new music below.

Vybz Kartel is celebrating his 42nd birthday today (January 7th) in good spirit.
The incarcerated dancehall legend received a family visit from his kids who were brought to GP on Sunday afternoon. A rep for his label told us that he is in good spirit as he marks another milestone in his life and career. “The Worl’Boss is in great spirit and despite his incarceration, there are a lot of things to be thankful for,” his rep said.

Vybz Kartel started his dancehall career in the early 90s as part of the group Vibes Cartel. The group was later disbanded and he took on the name Vybz Kartel by just changing up the spelling. However, his big success didn’t come until the early 2000s when Bounty Killer took him under his wings and lifted him up from an underground act to the mainstream of dancehall.
Bounty Killer, along with several other affiliated dancehall entertainers including Sean Kingston, Popcaan and NotNice have since wished Vybz Kartel a happy birthday on social media. “1time fi a real G long live.. #morelife,” Popcaan wrote while Sean Kingston added, “Happy birthday to the greatest in dancehall music period… @vybzkartel 1 more year Pon dem!!!

Nicole Murphy celebrated her 50th birthday at a posh party in Beverly Hills where Drake was in attendance.
You can hardly tell that Eddie Murphy’s baby mama is 50 because she would rival plenty females in their 30s. The model celebrated her big five O on Friday night at a super exclusive bash in Bev Hills. Drake was at the party all suited up and lots of Virginia Black whiskey was flowing.

Offset called up Chi-Town rapper King Yella on FaceTime and threatened him over Cardi B.
The Migos rapper is angry because Yella has been releasing old photos of himself and Cardi B while claiming that he used to bang her. Of course, Offset knew from the get-go what he was getting himself into when he decided to put a ring on the former Love and Hip Hop New York star. After all, she was once a stripper and she has never been shy about it and when you get famous people will always bring up your past and your life is amplified ten folds.
Nevertheless, King Yella decided to take a direct shot at Offset which means he wants smoke. “We had yo b***h first @offsetyrn @iamcardib interview out now on @zacktv1,” he said while promoting an interview he did about Cardi B. He then posted a video of himself on FaceTime with Offset where you can hear the Migos rapper in the background threatening to give him a beat down.
This comes a day after hackers leaked new footage allegedly of Offset cheating on Cardi B. The Atlanta rapper has not reacted to those rumors.

Young M.A. has stepped forward to address her massive weight loss.
Reports have been circulating in recent weeks that the “OOOUUU” rapper has lost a ton of weight. Now she is confirming the speculations via her Instagram account and announcing some new music. Young M.A. didn’t wait until the new year to start her weight loss journey, but she did wait for the year to start to prep her new music. She revealed that she went on a strict diet regiment and regular exercise to drop 20 pounds in two months.
She cut meat from her diet including chicken, beef, pork, lamb, and turkey. Young M.A. also significantly slash her alcohol intake to only drinking occasionally in a social setting. Her discipline paid off big time. Here is what she wrote:
“To all my supporters that keep saying I lost weight.. yes it was on purpose lol I’ve stop eating meat (beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb…) I cut my liquor intake into “occasionally only” lol.. I’ve been in the gym consistently… and I’ve been watching my calorie intake.. it was discipline for me of course. In 2 months I’ve dropped 20 pounds.. Always wanted to change my diet but wasn’t mentally ready for it at first.. Honestly since I’ve changed my diet I’ve been less exhausted.. I wake up with full energy.. and also mentally I feel good… I just want to say to all my supporters if you are not happy with anything in your life you have the power to change it! Only you! I love you all! God bless! More music on the way btw! Let’s get it! #2018 #YoungMA #Lyfe.”
Young M.A. accomplished what even some of the most hardcore fitness fanatic finds difficult, dropping twenty pounds in a mere two months. The result is she feeling better physically and mentally. DJ Khaled is also looking to drop some weight after he became the newest face of Weight Watcher’s.

Cardi B is dominating Billboard Hot 100 to kick off her New Year.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper became only the third artist in history and the first rapper to have their first three Billboard Hot 100 songs to chart in the top ten simultaneously. The only other two artists to achieve this are Ashanti and The Beatles, according to Billboard. Cardi B joined the elites among artists last year when her debut single “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” topped the chart making her the first female rapper since Lauryn Hill in the late 1990s to top the chart with a solo record.
Now Cardi B is making more history for herself once again on the most recognized music chart on the planet, the Billboard Hot 100. Her song with G-Eazy and ASAP Rocky, “No Limit” jumps one place this week to No. 4, while Migos’ “MotorSport” with Cardi B and Nicki Minaj holds firm at No. 7 on the chart this week. That’s two singles in the top ten where she is a guest artist on, but her debut single “Bodak Yellow” saw some resurgence over the holidays and jumped two places from No. 12 to 10 on the chart.
“What a great way to start my Year.Thank you Lord,” Cardi B wrote on Instagram. “Only you and i know how much i pray to you.These last few weeks been too much for me but my Lord always find a way to uplift me .Thank you to my fans ,DJS ,Team for the support .Thanks to all the artist who featured me In these songs and thanks guys for showing my second single BARTIER CARDI some love I love you.”
It’s very much possible that she can achieve four songs simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 if her new single “Bartier Cardi” continues to gain momentum. The song made its debut on the chart at No. 14 and over the holidays it was a top trending song on some major streaming platforms. Further down on the chart, Cardi B can be found on another song “La Modelo” with latin singer Ozuna which entered the chart at No. 52. “LA MODELO HAS ALSO ENTER THE HOT 100 at number 52 .Thank you guys for the support this honestly one of my favorite songs .Thank you @ozunapr por darme la oportunidad,” Bardi wrote on Instagram.

Tamar Braxton went lights out on Instagram after denying that she is back with her estrange husband Vincent Herbert.
The R&B singer was spotted on Tuesday arriving at the LAX with Herbert and their son and that triggered rumors that they are back together. Tamar quickly took to her Instagram to shot down the reports that she is back with her ex after getting him arrested on Christmas Day. She claim that the arrest was caused by a heated argument due to jealousy and intoxication. Fast forward to the second day in the new year and they were spotted traveling together like most civilize family do.
“NOPE! Sorry! Not together but since the craziness the other day, we DID agree to create a better environment for son!!” she wrote on IG. “P.s. we also agreed not to speak on this anymore in public after this! My son can read and he’s not dumb #2018goals #praymystrengthinthelord.”
After writing that on Instagram she then deleted her account. If you go on her profile on IG this is the page you will come across “user not found.” Perhaps a social media break is the best thing for her right now because you just can’t stop the media from writing about your personal life as a celebrity.
#TamarBraxton confirms that she and #VinceHerbert are not together, but they are creating a better environment for their son (view earlier post)
Erykah Badu has stepped forward to clarify reports of a stalker invading her home.
Moments after cops pulled her over in Dallas on New Year’s Eve, reports surfaced claiming that Erykah Badu had a running with a stalker at her home. The good news is, there wasn’t actually a stalker at her home and the bad news is a fan learned the hard way to never just popped up at a celebrity home or else you will find yourself behind bars even if its innocent.
“Peace and love Dallas, Texas,” she said in a video posted on Instagram. “In response to a story about a stalker breaking in, there was no breaking so stop it… story overblown. The only thing that happened was there was a kid on Twitter who follows me, has the hots for me, came over, wanted to look at me and do some music with me. He made a bad decision and then decided that this might not be the best thing and left.”
Erykah Badu says that her neighbors called the cops and reported that a strange kid was walking around the neighborhood asking if she lives there. She said the cops showed up and took the kid to the bus station and sent him home. Long story short, there wasn’t a stalker breaking in her home situation, just an overzealous fan made a bad decision to show up at her home.

Erykah Badu got pulled over by cops so that they can say hi.
In weird news to kick off the new year, Erykah Badu got stopped by cops in Dallas on New Year’s Eve and it turns out that it was for nothing. She posted a video on Instagram laughing about the whole thing but some fans were not so much amused given the current relationship between cops and people of color. Fortunately for her, this stop was merely for the cops to say hi to a celebrity.
“Okay it’s New Year’s Eve and I just got pulled over and why are you pulling me over,” she said while turning her camera towards the cop who said, “Because I wanted to say hi.” It appears that Erykah Badu also had a young child in the car with her at the time. “I would’ve pulled you over…made u step out the car, take pictures with me and call my mama so she could say hi too,” one fan wrote.
Some fans weren’t so amused about it. “Lies they know they were trying to catch you slippen but nah your never slippin,” another fan said.
WTF BABYLON !! HAPPY NEW YEAERZZZZ!
Cardi B is threatening to make Offset go Eric Benet if he pulls another stunt again.
JAY-Z coined the phrase on his single “Kill JAY-Z” off his 4:44 album. “You almost went Eric Benét, Let the baddest girl in the world get away, I don’t even know what else to say, Ni**a, never go Eric Benét!” Hov raps. During her performance at the Holiday Hip Hop Festival in Mississippi last night, Cardi B fired off a stern warning to her fiance Offset using some lines this time from Beyonce’s Lemonade.
“I let a ni**a know though. You do that sh*t again, you gon’ lose your wife,” Cardi B said in reminiscence of the famous lines on Beyonce’s single “Don’t Hurt Yourself” where she sings, “Uh, this is your final warning, You know I give you life, If you try this sh*t again, You gon lose your wife.”
Cardi B and Offset were recently embroiled in some cheating drama that aired out on social media after hackers leaked a video showing the Migos rapper allegedly cheating on his fiancee with another female inside a hotel room back in September of this year. He has since denied the allegations and seems she has forgiven him for any miss steps but not without a stern warning. The hackers who somehow got into Offset’s iCloud account also leaked explicit videos of Cardi B online and says that they have a full sex tape of the two.
The pair started dating earlier this year while they were working together on a song. They were first spotted out in public together at the Super Bowl and since then they have been inseparable. In October, they broke up for a few days after airing out each other on social media, but then got engaged a few days later when Offset proposed to her on stage at the Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia with a giant diamond ring cost north of $500,000.

NEW YORK, NY – MARCH 30: (L-R) Remy Ma and Papoose attend Breaking Boundaries presented by Women On The Move And HerSource With NYU & OBE at NYU on March 30, 2017 in New York City. (Photo by Johnny Nunez/WireImage)
Papoose confirmed on Twitter that Remy Ma is pregnant with the couple’s first child.
The Love and Hip Hop New York couple has some good news to share with their fans for the holiday. Papoose shared a photo from an ultrasound room and also a few pics of the two doing some pottery artwork. “Hand made these bowls, for our unborn child. #pottery #blacklove,” he wrote on IG. The caption maybe a bit cryptic but he did say clearly “unborn child.”
The caption could mean anything but certainly baby making is among the many meanings. It could also mean that they are just getting check up to make sure that they are healthy to make a baby or simply just trolling us. If the couple are indeed expecting, then Pap is in for an adventurous 2018.
Earlier this year, Papoose and Remy Ma opened up about her painful miscarriage. “This was a hard time for me & my husband & we thought long and hard before deciding to share this part of our lives with you all,” she wrote in the caption. “I was totally against it but in a fit of crying @papoosepapoose said ” you are not the only one going thru this , we will get thru it” …made me realize how many women like myself experience the same thing and don’t have a strong partner by their side to say it will be alright.”
After trying to have a child for a while their dreams may have finally be coming through. Remy Ma has a son name Jayson from a previous relationship.
Hand made these bowls, for our unborn child. #pottery #blacklove
