Vybz Kartel previews two new raunchy singles for the Christmas holiday.
The Gazanation boss teased the upcoming singles, “My Boo” and “Watch Over Us,” on his Instagram last night. The songs were produced by TJ Records and could arrive as early as this weekend, sources told us. “LIKE I SAID!!!…GAZAGURLZ LETS PARTY TOGETHER THIS CHRISTMAS.WANNA BE MY BOO? COMING SOON,” Kartel wrote. We’re told that the singles could arrive as early as tomorrow night.
“Think of these two tracks as a Christmas treat for the ladies from the Worl’Boss,” sources said. “TJ [Records] had these tracks in the vault for a little while and we think its the right time to release them. The single “My Boo” is a bit of a dancehall love song that will showcase Kartel’s versatility. You will find that The Teacha won’t come with the same style and flow with every song, it’s always something different.”
Since around August, Vybz Kartel has been dropping an average of two songs per week and is showing no signs of slowing down. This week he already released one song and could drop two more by tomorrow. Despite being behind bars since 2011, Kartel seems like he is the hardest working artist in dancehall currently.
Wiz Khalifa made headlines earlier this week when he told his fans that lean is lame.
In a PSA on his Instagram page a few days ago, Wiz called out rappers who regularly brags about drinking lean, also known as sizzurp. “When a lot of people follow one trend, or find themselves doing the same thing that everybody else is doing, you don’t really get somebody who speaks for the other side,” Khalifa said. “So I’m just going to go ahead and speak for the other side – lean is lame.”
Since Wednesday night, hip hop has been mourning the death of rising SoundCloud rapper Lil Peep who passed away of apparent drug overdose from anxiety med Xanax. His death renewed the call for young rappers to stay off drugs amidst a growing opioid epidemic in America. In an interview with Complex, Wiz Khalifa also spoke on the young rapper’s death and what it means for hip hop and drug use.
“I just feel like somebody has to speak up for people who don’t believe in that, or are really tired of seeing it,” the “See You Again” rapper said. “It’s unfortunate that Lil Peep had to die and stuff like that, but these are the things people are gonna start seeing and keep happening if they don’t really relax and fall back. I just want to be the responsible person and say something.”
Wiz also said that he got a couple friends that are drinking lean to this day and he tells them all the time that it’s wack. Perhaps Wiz Khalifa will bring more responsible rappers on board for a case to put an end to drug use in the culture and stop more young men and women from dying from drug overdose. Lil Peep is just the latest victim among celebrities, but ordinary people die everyday from drug use.
Watch the interview below and the video Wiz posted on IG.
The Florida rapper broke the news on Monday night on Instagram that he got jumped by Migos and their gang in Los Angeles. He also posted a short video clip showing Takeoff fleeing the scene while he and a few men yelled for him to turn around and fight him. At that time there wasn’t any real footage of the fight except that XXXTentacion has some scared including what he said is a stab wound from the melee.
Seems someone from Migos gang now decided to share a video from the fight that shows X on the ground and another unidentified man on top of him. Some folks are saying that it was actually Takeoff who was on top of the “Look At Me” rapper beating him to a pulp. Others are saying that the guys beating up X were affiliates of Migos and no member of the actual Migos group, Quavo, Offset, or Takeoff, are actually in the video that shows the fight. None of the Migos members have said anything publicly about the fight, we have only heard from XXXTentacion so far and he said he will not be pressing charges or calling the cops.
XXXTentacion hinted during one of his video rants that he might sue Migos over the fight and make a lot of money. “They also didn’t get arrested because of me, just so ya know, your life was in my hands,” X wrote. He also wanted his rivals to fight him one on one instead of attacking him in a pack. The beef between the two sides started when Offset called out XXXTentacion for disrespecting Drake earlier this year, but this is the first time that they are having a running with each other.
Jordin Sparks stunned her fans on Tuesday when she revealed that she is pregnant and now a married woman.
It’s been only a couple months since she has been dating fitness model Dana Isaiah so things are moving by quickly following her very public and bitter breakup last year from Sage the Gemini. “We’re both really excited,” Sparks told PEOPLE during an interview. The couple also appears in the upcoming issue of People magazine where fans will learn more about their romance.
The couple got married in July of this year in Hawaii in front of a small group of friends. The former “American Idol” winner told People that she found out that she was pregnant back in August. Sparks first Dana’s family back in February during the Super Bowl weekend in Houston. They spoke with each other for a month before they officially met for the first time in Los Angeles.
“A couple days after we had actually met, I was like in my head ‘That’s going to be my husband! That’s my husband right there,’” she said. “When I’m with him, I feel comfort and safety and calm and peace, and those aren’t things that I normally felt. So it was a little wake-up call for me.”
Seems Migos claimed another victing and this time its XXXTentacion.
The Lauderhill rapper confirmed in a video her posted on Instagram on Monday night that Migos jumped him in L.A. There is no word yet from the Atlanta rap trio, but Cardi B posted a video of herself and Offset basically confirming that he wasn’t there. The video clip we saw only shows Takeoff basically taking off from the scene and someone in the background like X and his crew yelling at the Migos member and his security.
“Before you heard it from anybody else, I got jumped in L.A. by some pu**y ass n***** and they jumped me,” X confirmed. “Nobody gave me the faith of a one on one, ni**a, nobody gave me the respect of a one on one and I painted that n***a while he was on the ground. Fuck the Migos, straight up… Y’all ni**a had the chance to kill me. How you have fire and ain’t shoot me after all the sh*t I been talking. How the f**k you ain’t shoot me. Yall ni**a p***y as f**k.”
X also shared some words for one Migos member, Takeoff, in the caption of the video he posted on Instagram. “LOOK AT PU**Y ASS LIFT OFF RUNNINNNGGGG HAHAHHAA, I AINT GON LIE, I SMACKED THE FYE OUT THE BACK OFF THAT BOY SECURITY GUARD BALD AH HEAD AHAHAHHAHAH @yrntakeoff @migos LOLOL HOW YALL LEFT YALL HOMEBOY AHAHAHAHA,” he wrote.
XXXTentacion also posted a pic of Cardi B assuring her that he has no beef with her, despite his issues with Migos. “Just letting u kno rn bae… i dont got no pressure witchu… i bump bodak orange when I shower… i love u,” he wrote.
XXXTentacion then posted another video pushing some positive message. Watch the clip below.
Thousands of fans poured out in Philadelphia on Monday for a Free Meek Mill rally.
The Dreamchasers rapper is currently serving 2-4 years in a state prison in Pennsylvania for probation violation. But his sentencing last week sparked a national debate about the criminal justice system and now his fans are demanding a review of the controversial sentence. Both hip hop fans and the rapper’s celebrity peers have been weighing in on the case and most are in agreement that the sentence was heavy-handed and unjust.
The rally started at 5 p.m. on Monday at Philadelphia’s Criminal Justice Center and the crowd later marched through the streets. There is no word yet on if any celebrities attended the rally, but some members of Meek Mill’s Dreamchaser crew were there to support the rapper. NFL star and the leader of the new wave of anti social injustice, Colin Kaepernick, has also weighed in with a message on Twitter.
“Sadly there are Black folks going through the same radicalized injustice(s) within the justice system that Meek Mill has experienced for over a decade EVERY SINGLE DAY,” he wrote. “This requires more than just gradual reform in laws—It requires a swift overhaul.”
The video clip below, show a section of the large crowd rapping Meek Mill’s intro to his album, Dreams and Nightmares. There are a lot of allegations around the judge in Meek Mill case, some sources say she was carrying a grudge against the Philly rapper and even comes from the same section of Philadelphia where Meek’s from. The latest allegation is that she tried to get the rapper to leave his management company Roc Nation and signed with a local Philly manager.

“When she requests he leaves his current management Roc Nation—which is one of the most important management companies in the world—and goes back to a local Philadelphia guy who has a spotted past because she had a personal relationship with him as manager, again, she’s doing something that a judge would never be doing, having a personal interest,” Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, told Billboard.
Desiigner and PnB Rock are on the verge of dropping a joint album.
Desiigner is currently working on his own upcoming album The Life Of Desiigner but so far there is no release date for the project. Now there are talks that he is working on a joint LP with PnB Rock. The Brooklyn rapper announced the project on Twitter a few days ago. “PNB AND DESIIGNER ALBUM… coming soon,” he tweeted. Desiigner has come under criticism from some rap fans recently who claimed that he dropped off. He responded on Instagram saying that he is far from dropped off.
“For all them haters out there man,” the rapper said while showing off his house and luxury car. “I don’t want to hear all that sh*t about Desiigner fell off, Desiigner never fell nowhere. I fell into a motherf***** mansion that I just bought in L.A., you know what am saying. Thank you to all my fans the album coming soon.”
The “Panda” rapper has been relatively quiet since score hit breakout hit single and a couple other notable collaborations. Earlier this year, he released a music video for his song with Gucci Mane, “Liife.” The “Tiimmy Turner” MC has been teasing his upcoming album and a mixtape for the past couple of months so naturally some fans are saying that they don’t believe that he will drop a project with PnB Rock anytime soon. So now its up to Desiigner to prove his haters wrong and drop something, whether it be his own personal project or this joint effort.
PnB Rock is currently gearing up to release his own debut album, Catch These Vibes, and earlier this year he released his GTTM: Going Thru The Motions mixtape. He then went on to get featured on XXL Freshman Class of 2017 which help further push his career this year.
PNB AND DESIIGNER ALBUM ???? ?? @pnbrock coming Soon

In case you do not know, Tyrese has been going through a lot over the past couple of weeks, with allegations from his ex-wife that he abused their 10-year-old daughter. She eventually got out a restraining order against him that triggered a bitter custody battle. At one point, Tyrese posted a video on Instagram of himself crying over the ordeal but that’s not all that went down. He later posted that Will and Jada Smith gave him $5 million to help with his legal fees because he is broke. 50 Cent trolled the Baby Boy actor for crying on the Gram.
Turns out the Will and Jada story was a lie and 50 Cent has already pounced on it. Sources say Will Smith has denied Tyrese story saying that the couple never gave him the money. The rapper posted a screenshot of the story on Balleralert. “Wait so this fool just made some sh*t up. LOL Will like I ain’t give him that #50centralbet tonight 10:30 PM on BET,” 50 Cent wrote. He then posted a video of the R&B singer saying he is waiting on the wire for his Will Smith check. The clip is a mashup of movies scenes from both Tyrese and Will Smith and it’s hilarious.
Tyrese is proclaiming that he is broke and cannot even afford to pay his legal fees but celebrities have been known to portray being broke to avoid paying an enormous child support. In this case, Gibson’s baby mama is asking for a reported $80,000 per month. So clearly, he does not want to be paying that enormous amount in child support, so he is wining and squealing down to the very end hoping that the judge will have sympathy on his and significantly lower the child support amount that his baby mama is asking for.
Last weekend, Nicki posted a video of herself and her girls hanging out drinking some wine and smoking blunts. According to Safaree, Nicki is now in her mid 30s and that’s when she decided to take up smoking. The Love and Hip Hop star says his ex need help and he hopes that she gets it. Some of Nicki Minaj’s fans, aka Barbz. have started attacking Safaree accusing him of stalking Minaj on social media.
If you wait to your mid 30’s to pick up a habit and show it off like it’s cool, you need help. I feel sorry for you. Stop,” Safaree said. He didn’t name anyone when making his statement but everyone already point fingers towards the Young Money rapper. Nicki doesn’t seems like the hardcore smoking type so perhaps she was just hanging with friends and just taking a hit off something. Safaree even said it that Nicki wasn’t a smoker when they were together. Perhaps he is just concerned about her well being.

Lil Uzi Vert and Nav have teamed up for a new single “Wanted You” dropping on Friday, but will likely be released on Thursday night.
The XO artist announced the track on Instagram on Wednesday telling his fans it’s coming tomorrow night. The Toronto singer joined forces with Metro Boomin during the summer to release a new project titled Perfect Timing. Since then he has kept a low profile but that’s about to change. Lil Uzi Vert has developed a close working relationship with the XO family through touring with The Weeknd. One of the biggest singles of his career is titled “XO Tour Life.”
Nav posted the artwork for the single “Wanted You” around two hours ago on IG with the caption, “Tomorrow night.” He didn’t reveal any additional details about the project other than to confirm that it’s coming on Thursday night. Seems like it will be a banger too so stay tuned to Dancehallhiphop.com because we will be posting it as soon as it drops midnight tomorrow night. He didn’t reveal who is the producer behind the record but we all know that Nav likes to handle the productions for his singles so don’t be surprised if he is also credited as the producer.
Lil Uzi Vert and Nav have worked together in the past including on a few singles off the Perfect Timing project in July. Uzi Vert is featured on the singles “A$AP Ferg” and “NAVUZIMETRO#PT2.” Nav celebrated his 28th birthday in Toronto last weekend and you can bet that this single was on repeat at the party. “This last year been the best year of my life Wanna thank everyone who helped it be that way,” he told his fans on Instagram. Lil Uzi Vert also released his debut solo album Luv Is Rage 2 during the summer.
Shortly after getting her ring, Cardi B posted a video showing off her 8-karat rock while listening to Vanessa Bling 2011 dancehall banger “Everything Fi Hold Him.” Bardi got a lot of shoutout from her Jamaican fan base for posting the clip and now she is getting some major props from Vanessa Bling herself.
“Cardi B always support my music even before she buss and get big in the music business,” Bling said. “I rate her and love how she’s a true hustler. She’s a real girl and I’m glad for her. I love how she never give up and always kept pushing for greatness.”
Cardi B is currently working on a collaboration with Vanessa Bling’s former mentor Vybz Kartel. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper was in Jamaica last week shooting a new music video with Rvssian and doing some recording for her upcoming album. Do you think Cardi B and Vanessa Bling should work on a collaboration?
Bling has been touring extensively Europe and Africa over the past couple of weeks and so far she said the journey has been great. She posted a pic of herself yesterday in Jerusalem praying. “Today is a happy day for me #Jerusalem this is where my Father was put to rest I only see this place on TV Christmas time. Now am here DEAR LORD I THANK YOU,” she wrote.
The Pompano Beach rapper played a snippet of the song at his concert on Sunday night. Kodak Black has dissed Lil Wayne in the past but it looks like the two have put those differences behind them and are now making music together.A video surfaced on social media today showing Lil Kodak on stage his recent concert while his DJ cued up the yet to be released collaborative single.
The clip shows Kodak walking around the stage rocking to the single with his cup in hand while the audience went wild. The Florida rapper went after Lil Wayne earlier this year shortly after his released from prison. He had some very hard words for the Young Money rap legend and at one point even said that he wanted to knock Weezy out. “Tell Lil Wayne fight me,” he said on Instagram. He also urged Wayne to get inside the boxing ring with him so that they can settle the debate on who is the best rapper alive.
Kodak has been having a great year in hip hop with two major projects under his belt so far, Painting Pictures and Project Baby 2. He also released a joint mixtape with fellow Florida native Plies titled F.E.M.A: Finesse. Elevate. Motivate.
As for Lil Wayne, he has been having a tumultuous year with his ongoing legal battle with Birdman and Cash Money Records. In July, he released a mixtape titled In Tune We Trust but his oft-delayed album Tha Carter V has yet to see the light of day. Earlier this year, Birdman revealed that the album will be released this year but the year is almost over the project is nowhere to be found. Weezy is suing the label for $51 million and also said he wants a judge to release him from his contract.
Meek Mill is taking his 2-4 years prison sentence for probation violation positively.
The “Dreams and Nightmares” rapper has shared his reaction to news that he is going back to prison and could be gone for a while. “We go to war for our freedom,” he wrote on Instagram on Monday. “They say we equal I used to wanna play I like Randall and be a Eagle I used to play the quarterback my homie would go receiver that was until the football got flattened by a dope needle on the pavement.”
Meek Mill turned up to court in Philadelphia on Monday with his attorney, Brian McMonagle, where he learned his fate. A judge ruled that he violated his probation when he got arrested in St. Louis earlier this year for an alleged fight with an airport employee, and again this summer in New York City for popping wheelies on his motorcycle in the streets of NY. He was charged with assault in the St. Louis case and for reckless driving and endangerment for the New York case.
Both charges were eventually dropped after he took a plea deal, but the judge rule that he violated his parole just by getting arrested. This is a big blow to Meek Mill who has been rehabilitating his image over the last few years with a number of charitable initiatives and getting more involve in his community. Meek has been getting some support from some of his celebrity peers like Kevin Hart who shared a supporting message.
“Praying for my brother [Meek Mill] right now,” Hart wrote. “God sometimes puts the toughest battles on his strongest soldiers. I’m here for you man!!!! My brother for life… Always here for you man!!! This storm will pass… Stay strong & keep your head up.”
Meek Mill will have to serve a minimum of two years in prison for violating his probation and could serve as much as four years.
We go to war for our freedom … they say we equal …. i used to wanna play i like Randall and be a Eagle …. i used to play the quarterback my homie would go receiver … that was until the football got flattened by a dope needle … on the pavement
Praying for my brother @meekmill right now. God sometimes puts the toughest battles on his strongest soldiers. I'm here for you man!!!! My brother for life…Always here for you man!!! This storm will pass…Stay strong & keep your head up ????????????
