Rapsody Details How Kendrick Lamar Changed Her Life




Rapsody says working with Kendrick Lamar changed her life and career for the better.

The female rapper had a phenomenal year in 2017 and a big part of her success is attributed to Kendrick Lamar whom she worked with on his landmark album To Pimp A Butterfly. Now she is nominated for a Grammy awards for Best Rap Album for her latest project Laila’s Wisdom. She is the only female rapper to be nominated in the category this year. Aside from dropping her album last year, she released a handful of singles that did very well on the airwaves.

Speaking with Larry King in a recent interview, Rapsody details how Kendrick Lamar significantly impacted her career last year and put on a scale she never thought she would reach. “After I worked with Kendrick on To Pimp A Butterfly, it put me on a platform where he introduced me to a lot of people that necessarily weren’t paying attention,” the rapper said. K-Dot is also nominated in the Best Rap Album category for his album DAMN. “It feels good to compete with your friends, you can compete but in a healthy way,” she said.

Rapsody also opened up about her impression of Kendrick Lamar as the face of rap music currently, telling Larry King that he is a fearless and humble rapper, who is not afraid to rap about anything he feels like. She says he first met the Compton rapper back in 2011 through producer 9th Wonder. They were both fans of each other at the time and Kendrick was a big fan of the producer.

As far as being the only female rapper nominated in the rap album category at the Grammy’s, Rapsody says it’s bittersweet because she grew up seeing a platter of female emcees in the 1990s and now it seems like there can only be one female mainstream rapper at a time.

Cardi B Didn’t Want Offset To Get Neck Tattoo Of Her Name




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.

Kodak Black and XXXTentacion Highlights Legal Troubles in “Roll In Peace” Video


Kodak Black and XXXTentacion made fun of the court and their legal troubles in “Roll In Peace” video.

The Florida rappers teamed up on the new collaboration which was debut over the weekend and now we have the visuals. This clip will show you that Kodak and X have much more in common than we previously thought. They both wrestle with legal troubles last year and their public image has come under fire on more than one occasions. This video highlights those issues as both rappers continue to face retribution from the justice system and from some hip hop fans who openly criticized their music and public life.

The video starts out with a court setting with the judge walking in and taking his seat in front of an audience made up of manikins. XXXTentacion did not make a cameo in the video but a monologue from one of his social media videos before his recent court date in December was injected in the middle of the cut. “I was just given seven more charges by the state attorney’s office and now I have a court date on the 15th [December], so I would ask that everyone come to support me and to show the positive influence that I have,” he said.

Kodak Black shows off his playboy and flashy lifestyle by throwing stacks of cash everywhere. X could not appear in the video because of his house arrest. He has a mountain of legal troubles ahead of him after being slapped with more than a dozen new charges filed against him last month for tampering with a witness who his the victim. His next court date is set for later this month and he is facing years in prison from both his previous charges of assaulting and kidnapping a pregnant woman and his new charges.

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.

JAY-Z Trademark Jaybo From “The Story Of O.J.” Video


JAY-Z files a trademark to protect his Jaybo animated character from “The Story Of O.J.” video and it makes perfect sense.

Last week news surfaced that his 4:44 album inspired a book about finance and now this week the rapper filed a trademark to protect the beloved character Jaybo from one of the singles on the project where he raps about money and finance, “The Story Of O.J.” TMZ reported on Monday that JAY-Z filed the trademark under his company S. Carter Enterprises.

The Jaybo character was inspired by the famous Sambo character from the 1899 children’s book, The Story of Little Black Sambo. The character is often characterized as racist due to his depiction and JAY-Z’s single also has a racial tone. There is also some resemblance to the character Dumbo from the 1941 film which also sparked condemnation of racism.

“The Story of O.J.” is the first video to be released from the album and it received raved reviews among rap critics. There are already some talks that JAY-Z is planning to release some merchandise featuring the Jaybo character like mugs and T-Shirts, or perhaps he could be featured in some upcoming music videos. During a recent interview with iHeartRadio, Hov spoke about the meaning behind the single, saying it was just a song about “we as a culture, having a plan, how we’re gonna push this forward. We all make money, and then we all lose money, as artists especially.”

Lil Kim Responds To Eve Comments About Her On “The Talk”


Lil Kim wasn’t about to sit by and let Eve namedrop her on The Talk without a proper response.

The two female rap veterans are still friends, according to Kimmy Blanco, despite some recent statement from Eve on her show The Talk. The former Ruff Ryder rapper is a co-host on the CBS daily show and she often used her platform to discuss what’s happening in hip hop currently. In this segment in question, she details her early days in the music business where she was a big fan of Lil Kim who was already an established rapper.

“When I first started in the business, I’d been a big, big giant fan of Lil Kim,” she said. “And I just thought that there was this sisterhood in the music business, so I would run up to her and be like, ‘Oh my god Kim, oh my god, hey girl I love you so much. I just got signed, could you please be on my album?’ and whatever, and she’d just look at me, like, ‘Uh uh. Yeah. Ok.”

Eve says she then decided to stop going up to her, but at the time she just didn’t think Lil Kim hated her. Kimmy has since responded on Twitter saying that she is not the bad guy everyone making her out to be. “Why do you girls always do this to me? Trying to make me out to be the bad guy?I don’t remember it that way at all [Eve] is my girl that’s my baby y’all.We are not fighting.We are real friends.We can have this debate and still cuddle on the couch and watch a movie 2gether,” Lil Kim Tweeted, while telling Eve that she would love for a chance to come on her show to explain what went down.

Ninjaman Transfer From GP Over Beef With Vybz Kartel


Ninjaman was transferred from GP last week following a beef with Vybz Kartel and other inmates.

The Don Gorgon, who was sentenced to life in prison for murder, was involved in a feud with some other inmates while being housed at the Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre, also known as GP. He was subsequently transferred to the St Catherine Adult Correctional Centre, in Spanish Town. Sources told Dancehall HipHop that Ninjaman got upset because Vybz Kartel and other inmates were allowed to have certain electronics like flat screen TV and DVD players.

“He felt like Kartel was being treated better than him when he is a celebrity too,” sources said. “I think he was denied a request to get a flat screen TV and a DVD player in his quarters and that didn’t sit well with him. So when he complained about it, the other inmates got upset because its bringing too much attention because these things are illegal. It’s like he just came in and want to run the show, but you have to pay your dues.”

RELATED: How Ninjaman Conviction Could Shatter Vybz Kartel Appeal

We’re told that Some inmates are also angry at Ninjaman because he previously disrespected Vybz Kartel in interviews before going to prison and also advocate against a Ministry of National Security initiative to allow inmates to get conjugal visits. “The other men in prison weren’t too happy with him talking bad about Kartel during the Lizard trial and even after the sentence, so there were a lot of bad blood and tensions were high, so that’s why they transfer him to Spanish town to prevent war from breaking out,” sources added. “Plus he was the one who spoke out against inmates being allowed conjugal visits when the National Security Minister said he wanted to humanized inmates. It’s not a good look because now some men sees him as a traitor.”

Ninjaman attorney didn’t deny or confirmed the reports, but reliable police sources told us that the dancehall legend is currently being housed at Spanish Town prison and he is not too happy about it since conditions at that prison is far worse than GP.

Cardi B Blast King Yella Amidst Offset Beef


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.

Tekashi69 Confirms Lil Yachty Collaboration On The Way


Tekashi69, aka 6ix9ine, has confirmed that a collaboration with Lil Yachty is on the way.

6ix9ine has been having a steady climb in hip hop over the last year, but Yachty has had a bit of a tumultuous year with disappointed sales numbers for his debut album Teenage Emotions. He was also given the face of whack rappers last year and believe me there were plenty. Tekashi69 himself has been taking some heat from some rap fans who accused him of releasing trash music.

So can this two controversial rappers turn their image around with this new joint they have coming. The New York MC announced on Instagram that he and Yachty has some fire coming out tomorrow. “This might happen. Don’t get to hype cause I’ll kill this n**** and then finish myself idc no more. Gang gang KEKE TOMORROW,” Tekashi69 wrote on Instagram.

Lil Yachty opened up about the dismal first-week sales of his album Teenage Emotion, saying that he was confused at first. “Then the sales came back and it did 44,000 first week and I was devastated and so confused, I worked so hard,” he told Paper mag. “But I disconnected with my fans because I tried to do this other stuff, you know?”

Aside from dropping some new music, Tekashi69 has been dealing with some ongoing legal troubles. The “Kooda” rapper, born Daniel Hernandez, is facing years in prison after taking a plea deal for “three felony counts of Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance.” He was 18 years old at the time of the incident and the victim was 13. In New York, the crime carries a minimum sentence of 15 years.

50 Cent Launching Own Champagne and Working On New Album


50 Cent is planning to expand his liquor business and working on a new album.

The hip hop mogul has his footprints dotted across the entertainment business from music to movies and TV and even his own brand of vodka. Now 50 Cent is looking to expand his empire into the Champagne business. Perhaps it will be called Effen champagne. The rap titan is currently promoting his new movie “Den Of Thieves” starring himself, Gerard Butler, and O’Shea Jackson Jr.

50 Cent sat down for an interview with The New York Times where he revealed his plans to launch his new beverage and laying down some new tracks for his sixth album. “I also go over my projects,” he said, “I’m launching a Champagne next year because it’s my favorite drink. And I go over my scripts. I’m there for a few hours, usually alone, and since it’s Sunday, it’s quiet, and I can get a lot of work done.”

The G-Unit rapper says he spend his Sundays recording his new album and sometimes he would spend hours in the studio just vibing new songs with his producers. “On most Sundays, I go into the studio to record my music and meet my producers there,” he said. “There are no windows so it’s very easy to lose track of time. I could be there six hours and not even feel it. Right now I’m in the middle of recording my sixth album, but it’s as thrilling as my first.”

Last year summer, rumors surfaced that 50 Cent sold his stake in Effen vodka for $60 million, although he never confirmed the deal. In 2007 he also sold his shares in Vitamin Water for a reported $200 million. The hip hop mogul currently has one of the most successful shows on TV, Power. He also announced last year that he is currently developing three more shows for STARZ after reaching a new deal with the network.

Alkaline, Popcaan, Aidonia Leads 2018 Your View Awards Nominees


Alkaline, Popcaan, and Aidonia leads the 2018 Your View Awards nominees.

The YVA has rebranded this year to Your View Award and the producers are promising a bigger and better show set for February 24. The Your View Award is already stirring up some controversies with a major snub to Vybz Kartel due to some changes in the eligibility rules. Alkaline lead the list of nominees this year with six nods including Hottest Summer Song (Red Eye), Favorite Local and International artist, and other categorgies like Chart Topper and Collaboration.

Popcaan and Aidonia each have four nominations including nods in some of the same categories as Alkaline which means that the three of them are going head to head against each other for some of the most coveted trophies. Several other local acts who have done well in dancehall and reggae over the past year have received nominations including Spice, Shenseea, Mavado, Chronixx, Sean Paul, and more.

There are some rules for some categories in case you’re wondering why some artists didn’t get included for new categories like Album of the Year and Music Video Concept. “The YVA defines an album as having no less than five different tracks,” the Your View Awards said in a statement. “Sampler albums or albums which are compilation of tracks from other previously released albums are not eligible.”

Chris Brown Faces Criminal Charges Over Pet Monkey


Chris Brown is facing criminal charges and possible jail time over a pet monkey.

Last month, the “Fine China” singer bought the capuchin monkey for his daughter Royalty. He took some heat from animal rights group when he posted a video of the toddler playing with the monkey and now there could be some legal troubles on the way. Some folks think that the animal is a danger to the 3-year-old girl and really should be left in the wild. Chris Brown shot back saying the animal is perfectly safe and everyone should just take a chill pill.

Some people took the issue a step further and notified the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife about Chris Brown harboring the animal. An investigation is now underway to see if he break any laws. TMZ reported that Breezy never got a proper permit for the exotic pet. The singer has since surrendered the monkey to the Wildlife department after they got a search warrant to search his home. That’s a good move given what happened the last time that authorities converged on his home.

The case has already been referred to the L.A. City Attorney office and a misdemeanor charge could be coming Chris Brown’s way. If he is charged with harboring a restricted species without a permit, CB could face six months in jail and fined thousands of dollars. “As I leave my office in Downtown L.A. and walk past people sleeping on the street on my way to defend people charged by the City Attorney with selling medical marijuana … now spending taxpayer money on investigating monkey business, this completes the circle on his absurdity,” Chris Brown attorney Mark Geragos said.

Brown named the monkey Fiji and says he got the animal as a pet for his daughter ahead of her fourth birthday. Here is a video of Royalty playing with the monkey. The clip was posted by Breezy back in December last year.

Cardi B Equals Beyonce’s Billboard Chart Record


Cardi B joins Beyonce as the only two female artists in history to have four songs on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart top 10.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper keeps getting into more exclusive clubs when it comes to the Billboard chart and streaming charts history. It’s no secret that Cardi B had a phenomenal year in 2017 and the new year is already off to a banging start. Not only has she dropped some new music, they all charted on their debut week and now she is the second female artist in history to hold four spots in the top ten of the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart.

On Thursday, her new lead single “Bartier Cardi” featuring 21 Savage, reach the top ten on the chart. Her breakout hit “Bodak Yellow” is currently at No. 5, “Bartier Cardi” is at No. 9, “MotorSport” with Migos and Nicki Minaj is at No. 3, while “No Limit” with G-Eazy is at No. 2 on the chart. On the heels of her new milestone on Billboard, Cardi B is getting ready to perform at the upcoming Grammy Awards ceremony in New York later this months. She is also nominated for two Grammy’s and is hoping to at least walk away with one. No doubt a Grammy would help cement her place as a new force in hip hop to be reckoned with.

While Cardi B is only the second woman to achieve 4/10 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart, a couple male rappers have done it already. Eminem, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Drake, and Lil Wayne have all achieve the 4/10 on the chart.

Cardi B is currently working on her debut album, a project that she says that she is holding close to her heart to make sure its done properly. There are no release date or title for the project but I guess it will have something to do with Bardi, Cardi, or Bodak.

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.

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.

Lil Wayne Responds To Paternity Suit “I Am Not The Father” Of 15-Year-Old


Lil Wayne has responded to a paternity suit involving a 15-year-old and he is making it clear that he is not the father.

Keiotia Watson filed a paternity lawsuit against Lil Wayne in 2015 claiming that he is the father of her 15-year-old son, Dwayne, a name she gave him after his alleged father. She claimed that she slept with the rap icon back in 2001 and got pregnant. In her suit, she asked the court to name Lil Wayne as the father of her child and order him to pay her child support.

Lil Wayne pretty much ignored her case and she filed a default judgement and won, which means that Weezy would be required to pay her child support of $5,000 per month starting January 2016. Wayne is also required to cover the child’s medical and school expenses. The “A Milli” rapper is now responding to the paternity suit and one thing he is making clear, he is not the father of the teenager,” The Blast reported. He also claimed that Watson is lying because he never slept with her.

Wayne is also arguing that he was never made aware of the child until the lawsuit, so he was never given due process to investigate whether or not he is the child’s biological father. The rapper also claimed that Watson fraudulently obtained the judgement against him by lying and deception. “I am the loving father of four (4) children, all of whom I provided support for since birth. Up until now, I have never been involved in a child support case,” Lil Wayne said in his legal docs.

The Dedication 6 rapper added in his response to the suit that while he was residing in New Orleans in 2001, his schedule required him to travel out of town extensively. He said he did not acknowledged Dwayne Brown as his child and says its not possible that he is the father. Bottomline is, she wants a new trial and wants the suit dismiss.

Dr. Dre Reviving “Detox” Working On New Music


Dr. Dre is reportedly working on new music and plans to revive his shelved album Detox.

The last time that we heard anything about Detox was back in 2015 when Dr. Dre officially announced that the long-delayed concept album is dead, meaning it will never see the light of day. Now it’s 2018 and there are fresh reporting about the nearly two-decade old project. On Tuesday, ESPN reporter Chris Haynes reported on Twitter that he spoke directly to the legendary producer/rapper about the shelved album and he confirmed that he is working on a couple new songs.

That is some great news for Dre’s fans considering that he might have fans now who weren’t even born yet when he released his last album. It appears that Dr. Dre and his longtime friend and business partner, Jimmy Iovine, were at the Golden State Warriors practice yesterday when Haynes asked him about the album. “I asked Dr. Dre if Detox is permanently shelved and he replied, “I’m working on a couple songs right now. We’ll see,’” Haynes tweeted.

Here is a bit of a history about Detox. Dr. Dre first announced the album in 2002 and in the years following his announcement there have been numerous delays. It appears that he wasn’t too happy with the final product and constantly revamps it until 2015 he decided to leave it on his hard drive possibly. In 2009, Dre played the first official single in a Dr. Pepper commercial and announced that he would be dropping the project in 2010.

I asked Dr. Dre if Detox is permanently shelved and he replied, “I’m working on a couple songs right now. We’ll see.”

Fast forward to 2010 we got an announcement from both Dre and Jimmy Iovine that “Under Pressure” featuring JAY-Z will be the first official single off Detox. That year they dropped two more singles, “I Need A Doctor” featuring Eminem and Skylars Grey and “Kush.” In 2011, a few songs were leaked online including a song titled “Syllables featuring 50 Cent, Eminem, and JAY-Z. Between 2011 and 2014 a few songs popped up that were linked to Detox but was never confirmed. In 2011, 50 Cent did an interview where he said, the project might just be released as an EP. In 2014, Ice Cube said in an interview that the album would be released in August that year but that never happened.

The following year, Dr. Dre officially announced that Detox is dead because he just doesn’t like it. Seems he is now reviving the project.

Floyd Mayweather Clowns Conor McGregory On Twitter About Beef With Irish Cartels


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 Ended Partnership With H&M Amidst Racist Ad


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 To Making Music First Video Of Rapper Surface


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.

Vershon Pays Homage To Buju Banton, Vybz Kartel, Ninjaman In New Song


Vershon had Buju Banton, Vybz Kartel, Ninjaman and more on his mind when he was recording his new song “One More Day.”

The young dancehall deejay pays homage to three great reggae/dancehall icons who are currently incarcerated while also paying his respect to a few other acts who were murdered over the last few months. “I had a close one yesterday, jah put an angel over me, be strong and hold a firm meditation, one day things must get better, don’t you go down keep your head above the water, words from the great Buju Banton,” Vershon sings in the intro for the Dakrome Productions-produced single.

“When them talk me do like me no hear no man, nuff blame the system but me blame the devil, cuz’ a him make Worl’Boss deh a jail so long,” Vershons sings in the second verse. At the end of the song, he played some old recording of Buju Banton, Kartel and Ninjaman before their incarceration.

“Well I am going to tell you something, is one person you can’t beg for publicity stunt, almighty god, any one of you feel like you can play with god then something is going to reach you,” Ninjaman said while Kartel added in an old interview, “right now I am concern over both my life and both my freedom because maybe by now and next week you can hear that anything happen to Vybz Kartel.”

Did Vybz Kartel Confirmed He Is Recording Music In Prison


Vybz Kartel is either just trolling us or confirming that he has been recording music in prison.

Since December, Kartel has been very active on Instagram, a tool he used to keep his fans up-to-date with his new music and post new photos of himself and his kids. On Monday, he shared a meme which pretty much expressed how he feels about his haters. “When badmind a wait fi hear seh Vybz Kartel stop voice inna prison,” the meme reads. In short, he is taking shots at his haters who want to see him stop recording music behind bars.

In 2016, Vybz Kartel broke his silence about the controversial issue of him recording music in prison. Not only did he dismissed the claims, he also said electronic devices are not permitted in prison which begs the question how is he able to be on Instagram so frequently?

“I’ve always been a prolific songwriter, and I record at breakneck speed as well, so I have a lot of surplus material to choose from,” the dancehall deejay told Rolling Stone. “There is a recording studio at another correctional facility [in Jamaica] but none here … cellphones, laptops, or any Internet-capable instrument are prohibited items.”

That same year, the National Security Minister ordered the department of corrections to conduct an investigation to determine if Vybz Kartel and other musicians are illegally recording music in prison. The investigation came up empty-handed, but the prison reinforced its security operation while also installing cellphone jamming devices. It’s also illegal for Vybz Kartel to be recording music in prison and if caught, he could be sent to solitary confinement and faced other penalties.

Nevertheless, he has been dropping more music than even artists who are free and his team has been saying that his slew of new music s from previously recorded unreleased material. That still doesn’t explain how Kartel has been deejaying about things that are happening now and he has been incarcerated since 2011. Unless he is a time traveler.

Nas and Kelis Made Peace For Their Son With Custody Agreement


Nas and Kelis have made peace at least temporarily for the sake of their son.

The former couple reached a custody agreement in their ongoing custody battle over their 8-year-son. Just a few weeks ago, Nas complained to a judge that Kelis has been hostile to him and is preventing him from seeing his son as per their previous agreement, TMZ reported. There were some rumors that she might have been jealous of the rap icon dating rapper Nicki Minaj and perhaps this is mere coincidence, but they reached an agreement just days after news of the relationship’s demise surfaced.

The couple’s new agreement will see Nas has his son Knight for extended periods like weekends which begins on Fridays after school and runs through to Sunday night or Monday night if it’s a three-day weekend like when a holiday falls on Monday. This new setup will cover January through to March when they are expected to hammer out a more permanent custody agreement.

As part of the agreement, the couple agrees that both parties will not expose their son to social media, which means you will not see Nas or Kelis post any pictures of their son. In his most recent court filing, Nas called Kelis hostile and says she deliberately prevents him from spending quality time with his son. He argued that she only allows him to see Knight when it was convenient for her and has little regards for his wishes to see the 8-year-old. Seems co-parenting is harder than it seems, but at least these two came to the table and worked something out.

As for the rap legend’s career, many fans are hoping that they will get an album from him this year although no formal announcement was made. Nicki Minaj would have been a great stepmom but perhaps she wanted her own child.
