Erykah Badu Clarifies Reports Of Stalker At Her Home

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 Gets Stopped By Cops Just So They Can Say Hi

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 Issues Warning To Offset Don’t Go Eric Benet “Take JAY-Z Advice”

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.

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.

Last weekend hackers started leaking explicit videos of Cardi B online and also a video allegedly of Offset with another woman in a hotel room.

Following his running with Spice, Beenie Man is again at odds with another female dancehall artist.

Pamputtae uploaded a video on her Instagram last weekend blasting Beenie Man and the promoters of Ghetto Splash in Kingston for not allowing her to perform. “Mi forget say them show is a all man show and no female no fi be there, them no fi put no female on there cuz me a the only female in the venue and them no want me fi perform,” she rants. “Beenie Man know say a me fi perform and him a hurry fi work and him have how much song.”

The video has since went viral forcing Beenie Man to respond and give his side of the story. According to the Doc, Pamputtae is ungrateful because she did got a chance to perform but the crowd just wasn’t feeling her. “I was booked to performed at 4 o’clock and when he arrived at the venue some minutes to four, he heard that Pamputtae wanted to perform. The dancehall legend said he orchestrated for her to get some stage time, and this is how she repays him. Nevertheless, she made it clear that she will not return to the annual show for another performance.

Rick Ross Reacts To Birdman Defaulting On $12 Million Mansion Loan

Rick Ross is once again trolling Birdman for defaulting on a $12 million loan against his Miami mansion.

Rozay and Baby beef goes back to last year and it seems the MMG rapper is still angry about the Cash Money honcho handling of the Lil Wayne situation. So when Ross got wind of the news about Birdman possibly loosing his mansion in Miami, he pounce on the opportunity to fired off more shots at his enemy.

“Mack Maine let Wayne know you can forget about it $ Bryan can’t pay his rent, someone dm this link,” Rozay wrote on a SnapChat video he posted which includes the screenshot of the story. “You mean you move to Miami take out a loan on the mansion, then took out another loan on the mansion, and you still ain’t paid you lil ni**as,” Rozay said while hinting that Birdman wants to mess up his new girlfriend, Tony Braxton, life. “You ain’t have no money in six-seven years, ni**a. You should have came and borrowed some from Rozay. Now you want to f**k that old lady life up too. You probably borrowing some money from her.”

Rick Ross then jokingly said that he probably should buy Birdman’s mansion on the water front in Miami and use it to park his boat.

Alkaline Disses Tony Matterhorn To His Face For Playing Vybz Kartel Music

Alkaline and his goons almost put paws on Tony Matterhorn for playing Vybz Kartel music.

Matterhorn was the designated disc jockey at Alkaline’s birthday bash at Club Euro in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Friday night. The venue was jam packed to maximum capacity with Vendetta fans pouring in to see the young dancehall deejay. Sources told us that the veteran sound system selector was playing music from several different dancehall acts including some who has beef with “Suave” deejay like Tommy Lee Sparta and Popcaan.

Our source say things took a turn for the worst when Matterhorn played a Vybz Kartel song and that’s when Alkaline and a few of his goons made their way on stage and took the microphone. “Matterhorn know wa yo a bombocl*** do inno a Vendetta place yo deh don’t gwaan like yo waan come style the thing because we can style the thing to,” Alka told the DJ in front of his face. “But hear what for the love of my fans we naan go do that, but yo a pu**y for that wa yo just do. Me and yo a friends but no try do them style deh, but hear wa a gwaan differently… For my fans mi just waan say big up everybody wa forward for the show.”

The video clip below gives you a preview of the showdown and you can see one of Alkaline goons standing next to Tony Matterhorn looking like he was ready to brawl with the veteran selector. Thankfully cooler heads prevailed and things didn’t ended badly. Perhaps if this show was in Jamaica then it would likely ended differently. The show was a huge success for Alkaline and his team and now sources inside his circle are telling us that it will likely be an annual event going forward.

Cardi B is Fiance Of The Year Buys Offset A Rolls-Royce and Rolex For His Birthday

Offset is the real winner and Cardi B is the gunning for fiance of the year.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper surprises her fiance with a brand new Rolls-Royce wraith for his 26th birthday Last Thursday and he was ecstatic about his new toy. These cars retail for around $320,000 so some of Cardi B’s fans are social media were criticizing the move especially since she only broke onto the scene this year. But she shot back saying that her financial advisor told her that she can afford to make the purchase.

With a number one song this year and massive success as a guest artist on other singles, plus an album on the way, Cardi B can more than afford to shell down $300K on a new car. After all she just purchased a brand new Bentley SUV for herself. Bardi hosted a birthday bash for Offset at The MacArthur in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday night and a bunch of celebrities came out for the party including Migos members Quavo and Takeoff. Other celebs like Swae Lee, Big Sean, Lil Yachty, Ashanti, and G-Eazy were also at the party.

At the end of the party, Cardi B surprised Offset with the white-and-red Rolls-Royce Wraith outside the venue while fans looked on. It’s safe to say that the Migos rapper has had as good as a year as Bardi. The two got engaged in October during the 2017 Power 99’s Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia. Offset proposed to her on stage with a giant diamond engagement ring cost over $500,000. Their engagement came just days after the two broke up and aired it all out on social media.

Congratulations to Offset for bagging one of the baddest chicks in hip hop and she is kind hearted too and knows how to make her man happy.

XXXTentacion Arrested Slapped With Seven New Felony Charges

XXXTentacion will be spending Christmas behind bars.

The South Florida rapper was arrested this morning when he appeared in court for a hearing on his assault case. The prosecution added seven more felony charges to his name including witness harassment and witness tampering. The judge also ruled that he violated the conditions of his bail from his original arrest and was immediately taken into custody by police officers, TMZ reported. This means that X will be in jail until his trial.

The prosecutor argued in court in Miami-Dade County on Friday that XXXTentacion coerced the ex-girlfriend, the same female he is accused of assaulting, to drop the case. The “Look At Me” rapper presented a document earlier this month allegedly signed by his ex-girlfriend saying that she wishes to drop the case. The prosecutor questioned the validity of the document and announced that more charges are coming.

Earlier this week, XXXTentacion released a statement to his fans on Instagram apologizing for letting them down. At the time he knew there was a strong possibility he would get arrested at his court hearing today. “Court date is on the 15th 9:00 am here is my court information, if I am taken into custody, I want to tell everyone I’ve let down I apologize, I tried my best, I really did,” he wrote.

Chris Brown and Kevin McCall Reignite Their Old Beef

Chris Brown and Kevin McCall are at each other’s throat again.

We thought that the two singers squashed their beef ages ago, but apparently not. McCall fired off a series of posts on Instagram last weekend bashing Chris Brown and members of his OHB crew for threatening and stalking him. He is also saying that he has no issues with Breezy and his crew but he is ready for a one-on-one fight with the “Loyal” singer. Brown didn’t respond to that offer, but one member of his crew name Sinko did.

“Chris Brown is supposed to be a gangster, right,” McCall said. “Why every time he get into something with another man — one person — he gotta have a gang come help him? Chris Brown, you from out of town, my n***a. My whole city will turn up on you’re ass if you keep it up.”

Sinko says that McCall has been calling members of the OHB crew trying to get them to squash the beef with Breezy. “Don’t let this ni**a fool you, ni**as don’t want smoke,” Sinko said. “He got mutual homies hitting me on his behalf to squash beef! Now it’s no passes, you give a ni**a a inch and they take a mile. We winning over here, staye out our lane, youdon’t wanna crash that cheap car you can’t afford to get fixed.”

Kevin McCall later posted a series of videos saying its all love and that he has no issues with Brown and his crew. He is basically saying that some guys around Chris are jealous of him and are only coming after him because of that jealousy. Breezy did not comment on the beef himself, but he gave his stamp of approval by liking the post made by Sinko. Check out some of the videos and the heated exchange on Instagram below.

R. Kelly Atlanta Home Burglary Suspect Turns Self Into Police

R. Kelly can now breathe a sigh of relief after his home burglary suspect turns himself into police.

The R&B legend’s Georgia home was burglarized last week after someone forced themselves into the mansion located in Johns Creek, just outside of Atlanta. The singer posted a video on social media over the weekend showing his empty house where the burglar, who has now been identified as Alfonso Walker, took everything including electronics and jewelry. TMZ reported that Walker turned himself into Johns Creek Police Department on Monday, nearly a week after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Walker was booked on 2 counts of theft by deception, 2 counts of theft by taking, and 2 counts of burglary. He faces years in prison if found guilty on all counts. According to the police report, Alfonso Walker hired other individuals to clean out R. Kelly’s house and later sold the stolen goods on the black market. Kelly identified the suspect as a part-time employee.

The burglary incident took place over the Thanksgiving weekend when the burglars hit R. Kelly’s two Atlanta properties cleaning them out of everything that they could get hands on. The thieves took TVs, furniture, washer dryer, and other household appliances are all gone.

…Still encouraged. Still blessed.

Lil Pump Tosses Microphone At An Unruly Fan At His Concert: Watch

Lil Pump had enough of an unruly fan at his concert and then his microphone came flying.

The “Gucci Gang” rapper was performing at a concert in Connecticut on Monday night when the incident took place. The incident came just a day after another video surfaced online showing the rapper roasting a police officer for kicking him out of his hotel room. It’s unclear what took place at the concert in Wallingford, Connecticut to get him so riled up, but it appears that the fan in question threw something onto the stage and that infuriated Pump who threw his microphone back at the fan.

“Come up here and do that sh*t, pu**y,” the MC said. It appears the fan said something back and that’s when he tossed his microphone towards said fan. All that went down while “All the Smoke” by 21 Savage was being played in the background. Lil Pump later went on Instagram Live to explain to his fans what took place that lead to the show ended prematurely.

“If you was at that Connecticut show… sh*t ended ’cause some stupid ass ni**a thought he was funny and he threw some sh*t onstage and he got his ass socked,” he said. “B*tch, don’t you ever try to do no stupid sh*t while I’m performing you f**kin’ dumbass. Of course you gon’ get your stupid ass socked—f**kin’ goofy. I’m sorry to everybody.”

Lil Pump is currently working on a new solo mixtape as well as a joint album with Lil Yachty. There aren’t any release dates yet for those projects but sources are saying that they could arrive at the top of the new year. The viral rapper is currently smiling after getting a $345,000 advance from Warner Bros. for his upcoming debut album. Coupled that with the success of his single “Gucci Gang” makes him already a millionaire at just 17 years old. Look out for what’s to come in 2018 for this rapper.

Vybz Kartel Previews Song About Domestic Violence Against Women

Vybz Kartel is dropping at least five new songs this month.

The aced dancehall deejay is closing out the year on a high and already he his looking beyond 2017, putting his fans on high alert for a flurry of new singles at the top of the new year. Vybz Kartel previews a new song on Instagram tentatively titled “One Box.” The snippet drew some criticism from some dancehall fans who are accusing him of promoting domestic violence against women. The cover art for the single features a female with a black with her finger over her lips.

In all fairness to Kartel, the song seems to be centered around a female who is dating a man who beats her for going home late. Whether or not Kartel is promoting domestic violence is up for debate. “One box in a yo face, just true yo reach home late, Jesus Christ good thing yo never dweet whole day, dead yo would a dead same place, the boy waan kill yo for your pum pum,” Kartel deejay over a dancehall beat.

It’s also fair game to let the full song be released before making a proper judgment on whether or not he is promoting the beating of women by men. “Sooooo people just listened to likkle (few) line and crying bout promotion of domestic violence. Lets hear the whole song nuh!!” one fan wrote in the comments.

#vybzkartel preview his next hit .. #onebox

A post shared by DancehallHipHop (@dancehallhiphop) on Dec 7, 2017 at 3:39pm PST

“Don’t like the theme of this song nothing to dance to here. Domestic violence is no joke some men will listen to that theme and use it as an instruction manual,” another fan wrote. Our Gazanation sources confirmed that the song will be released in January.

Vybz Kartel has been dropping an average of two songs per week since the start of fall this year.

Migos & Joe Budden Beef Far From Over Quavo Previews Diss Track

Migos and Joe Budden beef is far from over.

The Atlanta rap trio previewed a Joe Budden diss track on Twitter on Wednesday that ignites a firestorm including a response from Joe Budden. Who can forget Migos and Budden’s tense confrontation at the BET Awards pre-show in June. The Slaughterhouse rapper was partaking in an interview with the group when things quickly went south. Eventually, security manages to separate them before it went into an all-out brawl.

Migos hasn’t forgotten and is about to let their feelings be known in an upcoming track, due on Friday. The rap group shared a preview of the song on Instagram today. In the short clip, you can hear Quavo name-dropping the veteran rapper while indicating that he is ready for war. “Ice tray a n***a floodin’, ice, ice, ice / If a n***a hatin’ call him Joe Budden (pu**y!!) / Coupe outside and its press button / Fa**** ni*** mad cuz your b**ch f***ing / f*** it ice trader gang,” Quavo raps over a trap beat.

RELATED: Migos & Joe Budden Got Into Heated Confrontation At BET Awards

Joe Budden already took notice of the potential diss and responded on Twitter. “Quavo want smoke ? Lol,” the Everyday Struggle co-host tweeted. “Soon as it’s all peace he decides to unleash this lyrical venom in my direction… that’s crazy smh. @QuavoStuntin i am your OG & you will respect me as such.” This response indicates that Budden might be planning to dust off his mic and lay down a response in the studio. Let’s hope these guys keep this beef in the studio. Last year, the “Pump It Up” rapper fired off a series of diss tracks aimed at Drake, but the Toronto rapper never bite. In one of his diss records, he also took shots at JAY-Z and Meek Mill.

Several of his fans on social media were skeptical about the event and thought that he was just using it as a PR move amidst his ongoing assault case involving his ex-girlfriend.

XXXTentacion says that he organized the event to give support to those who were raped or went through any form of post-traumatic experience. He also asked attendees not to bring any form of negative energy to a place where he said its all about support. Sadly the event never took place because some folks vandalized the venue among other things.

“It was my fault completely that the event was cancelled,” he stated. “I put the venue address out, which caused the venue to get spray painted,” he added. He also clarified that the performance will be separate from the make-up anti-rape event, explaining that “I’m doing a free performance, free of charge, to make up for the fact that I didn’t get this done on time.”

He didn’t reveal when he will be performing at the planned free concert, but XXXTentacion has been working hard to rehabilitate his image in recent months. He also signed a new deal with Capital Records and the label seems to be helping him with his legal troubles.

Popcaan has finally hit back at some of Vybz Kartel fans who are criticizing him on social media.

On Tuesday night, the Unruly Boss took some time out to mingle with his fans on Instagram Live but things didn’t go according to plan.

Shaniqua Brown go nyam out your muma. A we build Gaza bumbo hole. Which part Gaza a sell because everybody want to buy the Gaza.”

Popcaan also took timeout to give Vybz Kartel props despite some recent statement from the Gazanation boss that he doesn’t want to hear it from the OVO Unruly deejay. “Big up Vybz Kartel you hear that, a nuff youths Kartel help, so you done know we forever rate Kartel,” the deejay said. “But we no beg friend from now boy, from you no rate we, we don’t rate you either, and you don’t have to listen to we music.”

Is Kodak Black Engaged To Girlfriend Cuban Doll ?

Kodak Black is dropping some hints that he is engaged to girlfriend Cuban Doll.

The Pompano Beach rapper posted a video of himself and his Cuban Doll goofing around about being engaged except in the end she said that she is married to the money. Kodak tossed a large stack of cash on the ground and took off one of his expensive rings and gave to her. Just a few days ago the “Tunnel Vision” rapper hinted on Instagram that he is ready to settle down.

“I want to wife someone up this is my goal right now,” he said. Kodak Black has been trying to stay out of trouble over the last few months after getting some jail time earlier this year for probation violation. He also has some pending legal hurdles that he has to clear before he is able to live a normal life. In October, he was indicted for first degree criminal sexual conduct and faces up to 30 years in prison if he is convicted.

Watch the video below and stay tune for Kodak Black’s wedding plans.

Popcaan went HAM on Alkaline on Instagram Live last night.

The Unruly Boss took some time out his busy schedule to talk with his fans on Instagram Live last night and let’s just say it did not go according to plan. While taking questions from his fans, one fan asked him to give the Vendetta boss a shout-out and well you can watch the video below to see what happened next. Popcaan lost it after reading that question and resorted to blasting the fan as well as his dancehall nemesis.

“Mi no beg bumbocl**t friend from no boy or gal inno,” Popcaan yelled. “Alkaline a batty boy bout big up Alkaline wha happen to you pu**y. How me fi big up f****t on bad man live how me fi do that. Alkaline them a batty boy them so don’t ramp with me, me will kick one of unnu in unnu face to. Don’t call no mullet name on me timeline.”

The Game Drops Freestyle “I turned 38 and I’m still rapping still”

The Game is celebrating his 38th birthday today (November 29) with a fire freestyle.

The Compton rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, posted three clips on his Instagram today showing a bottle of Hennessy beside a candle and himself in the background rapping a cappella. In the first clip, he started out by taking a jab at JAY-Z who famously responded to him in his song “The Prelude.” “I used to think rapping at 38 was eww / Until I turned 38 and I’m still rapping still,” Game raps.

“I used to think rapping at 38 was ill / When last year alone I grossed about 38 mill / I know I ain’t quite 38 but still / The flow so Special got a .38 feel / The real is back,” JAY-Z raps in “The Prelude.” Hip Hop fans things that it was a response to The Game’s line in the classic single “It’s Okay (One Blood)” featuring Junior Reid where he took a shot at Hov. “What DJ gonna turn down the thirty-eight snub? / You thirty-eight and you still rapping? Urgh / I’m 26 nigga, so is the dubs,” Game raps.

“Chill slow movement these days / Everybody wonna ball am cool with it these days / Yeah just happy a ni**a made it / If me and a ni**a meet I ain’t even wonna say it / But this morning am off Hennessy ni**a,” he continues. The Game also took a jab at Meek Mill being in prison and we all know about the deep rooted hatred between the two rappers. “F*** jail I wouldn’t wish it on my enemy,” he raps. He then went into a past controversial topic where he named a number of famous women that he has had intimate relationships with. “I smashed everything except Nicki, Bey, and Rihanna,” he raps after hinting that he didn’t want to embarrass Kanye West by naming Kim Kardashian on the list of women he smashed.

Mr. Vegas Reacts To Tommy Lee Sparta Statement On Mobay Flooding

Mr. Vegas has shared his reaction to Tommy Lee Sparta’s statement on the recent flooding in Montego Bay.

Last week, heavy rain in Jamaica’s second city left down town Montego Bay and some surrounding areas flooded and millions of dollars in damages to property and infrastructure. Tommy Lee Sparta who is one of the most recognized artists from the area shared video footage and photos on Instagram showing the aftermath.

Montego Bay unno see that god a show unno a sign, the killing need to stop take this as a warning plz we need to come together n put a stop against crime n violence god don’t like wah gwan,” the Guzu Musiq deejay said. He also got some support for his statement from fellow dancehall artists like Bounty Killer and Razor B. Earlier this year he also spoke out against crime that has been crippling the city during a performance at Margueritaville.

A post shared by Tommy Lee Sparta (@tommyleesparta) on Nov 23, 2017 at 6:54am PST

Mr. Vegas begs to differ with Tommy Lee saying that judgement day is not here as yet. “God vex wid the whole world. So how comes Parliament and their members that has implemented the ‘one world order system’ nuh flood out,” the dancehall veteran said. “Day of Judgement nuh come yet,” he said. “Matthew 24:6 says ‘You will hear of wars and rumours of wars but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”

XXXTentacion “I’ve Been Mentally Alone For A Very Long Time”

XXXTentacion is speaking out amidst criticism about his mental state and why he is a troubled rapper.

The Lauderhill rapper has been having a successful year, but it comes at the expense of his life getting a lot more scrutiny. He was also embroiled in a number of controversies that took place this year like his recent fight with some guys that he thought were Migos and it turns out to be not them and he later had to apologize to Takeoff. He was also rocked with rumors of him being suicidal and some fans starting to think that its all a publicity stunt.

“I love the way people will throw negativity on my name but have no clue what I’ve been through,” he wrote on Instagram Stories. “Let me clear something up, the reason I don’t have a complete grasp on my emotions is because I’ve been through sh*t that has f***ed me up emotionally when I was younger. Imagine being at least 6 to 7 years old watching your uncle hang from a noose all because of a woman, and then having someone you f*** with killing themselves with no consideration at all to you. Imagine being locked up and in and out of programs from the age of twelve until this f***ing year, ni**a, I don’t have a mom or dad around, I was alone, I was homeless, my family gave up on me, only person there for me was my grandma.”

XXXTentacion says that he never grew up with a father figure or an older brother in his life to guide him. “I’m emotionally f***ed up and insensitive because I’ve been mentally alone for a very f***ing long time, and I fear, and feel like I’ll never know what it feels like to be truly loved by another human [being],” he added. X told his fans on Instagram that he thinks about ending his life everyday. “If you think ending my life isn’t on my mind all the time you f***ing stupid, it’s these kids keeping me alive, it’s these kids that are the reason why I’m able to do what what I do, not these media platforms, these kids believe me, these kids see the fu***ng pain in my eyes.

Cam’ron Responds To Mase With New Diss Track “Dinner Time”

Just when we thought that Cam’ron and Mase made peace, the Dipset rapper offload a new diss track “Dinner Time.”

The former Bad Boy MC surprised fans last week Friday when he released a scathing diss track “The Oracle.” The song was the number one topic in hip hop over the weekend with Mase ripping Cam’ron on every line on the single. After taking shots at Mase all weekend on social media, Cam finally coughs up a response in the form of a song and he went in on the rapper turn pastor then rapper again.

“But who you talking tough to? Blinky just snuffed you / Puff f***ed you, we’ve seen in those binoculars / Passed you to 50, he was finger popping ya / Then he took it back like a fly b*tch that was popular / You’re 42 still saying “Ain’t no stopping ya” / You know my deals—liquor, movie, and flashy kicks / How you talking deals? Your last deal was ’96,” Cam’ron raps over a trippy beat. The Dipset emcee also denied allegations that he had sex with his own sister, saying that he doesn’t even have a sister. The diss track “Dinner Time” was produced by The Heatmakerz, who also produced another Dipset record that surfaced a few days ago that features both Jim Jones and Cam.

Over the weekend, the two rap veterans exchanged comments on Instagram signaling that they might have made peace and bury the hatchet. YOU STILL MY BROTHER IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE…This was just for bragging rights #mase #theoracle,” Mase wrote to which Cam’ron replied, “Yea this was fun.. u still my bro too. Glad I get to brag lol. So when u leaving Harlem again? 2mr?” The Bad Boy rap legend then followed up with another post on Instagram. “Sometimes You Can Be Better Than Your Critics. #Mase #theOracle Keep All Secret Love… If it’s real post it or don’t tell me about it at all. #mase #theOracle,” he wrote in the caption of an iconic photo of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.

Dancehall Artists Reacts To Ninjaman Murder Conviction


The local dancehall fraternity has been reacting to Ninjaman murder conviction earlier this week.

The dancehall legend and his two co-accused are staring down a life sentence after being found guilty for killing 20-year-old Ricardo Johnson in March 2009. The conviction in Jamaica’s Supreme Court sent shock-waves through the dancehall community. Several of his peers in the genre including Bounty Killer, Mavado, D’Angel, and Bling Dawg have shared their reaction. “He was my first DJ Jah know star,” Mavado wrote.

“This is a very sad time for me right now I’ve know Ninja Man to be someone you can talk with in any situation, one that is always quick to resolve problems, especially the ones that often times develop amongst artist in the music industry,” D’Angel wrote on Instagram while asking for the deejay to get a second chance. “I’ve learnt to gain respect for Ninja throughout the years even more because I’ve seen how he helped a lot of people in need all over a man with a BIG heart.”

Bling Dawg wrote a lengthy statement condemning some fans who are attacking Ninjaman amidst his conviction. Bounty Killer repost that statement. “As I read the comments made towards you People are so cruel these days not knowing what truly happen that’s why me stay in a My Rass lane and no chat up to people cause at your low no BODY GIVES A F**K my prayers goes out to the two side of the family affected by this case I’m not a judge and I wasn’t there when whatever happen but I will say your a true legend. I send my blessing to you and the victims family and may god be with you all,” the dancehall deejay wrote.

John Legend Wife Chrissy Teigen Announced Pregnancy With Second Child


John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen are expecting their second child.

The model announced that she is pregnant in a hilarious video posted on social media on Tuesday. The short clip features the couple’s first child Luna making the big revelation. “What’s in here?” Teigen asked the big sister to be, to which she responded saying, “baby.” In an effort to clear up any speculation, not that there would be any, Chrissy Teigen says the baby belongs to John Legend.

“It’s John’s!” she captioned the video. The R&B singer then shared the Instagram post on his Twitter page where he added some baby and hearts emojis. Legend then jokingly commented on her video saying, “Maury will have the final word on this.”

John and Teigen currently have a 19-month-old baby girl named Luna who came into the world in April 2016. Earlier this year, the Lip Sync Battle host announced that the couple’s next baby will be a boy. “Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy. So. Yeah,” she wrote on Twitter.

Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy. So. Yeah.
