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.

The following month, rapper XXXTentacion visited Fredo Santana in the hospital and posted a video of the visit. “Been in here since Friday doctor say a ni*** had kidney failure an liver failure I’m getting back to normal sorry to all my fans turbo bandana will not be dropping tomorrow due to my health issues thanks for everyone who prayed for a n**** I wouldn’t wish this on my worse enemy,” he wrote.
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.”
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.

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!!! Gwan hold di faith mi don freedom is a must!!! #vybzkartel #seankingston #Gaza.”

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. Nicole Murphy famously appeared in the recent advertisement for Drake’s whiskey brand where the 6 God and his dad Dennis Graham also appeared in.

There are already some rumors about Drake and Nicole dating but we’re told that they are just friends and Drizzy just came out to support her. TMZ paparazzi caught up with her last night heading into a restaurant with her mom where she was told that GQ named her the hottest 50 of the year. “That’s sweet thank you, thank you GQ,” she said.
Evelyn Lozada has broken her silence about her rumored relationship with French Montana.
The former Basketball Wives star and the Coke Boy rapper have been rumored to be dating for the past few weeks, but one fan got her to do what the media couldn’t get her to do, confirm their relationship. The reality star posted a photo on IG on Thursday showing off her results from her intense training and naturally, fans flooded her comments about questions about French Montana.
“French really pounding your culo cakes into sazón huh?” one fan asked to which she responded saying, “Y sofrito.” The pair were spotted this week at a club in New York City. They were again spotted together in December at French Montana’s house while Evelyn Lozada was celebrating her birthday. She posted a few photos of herself with her cake and some French Vanilla Ciroc.
In 2012, French Montana released a song titled “Ocho Cinco” where he reference her so its been a while that he has his eyes set on the BBW beauty.
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.
What a great way to start my Year.Thank you Lord .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 I?n thesee songs and thanks guys for showing my second single BARTIER CARDI some love ???????????I love you
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.
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.
