During an interview with Pandora, the “Lil Bebe” hitmaker revealed how the collaboration came together suddenly. “I actually showed him my record ‘Easy,’ and he was like, ‘Let me hop on this right now.’ I was like, ‘OK, crap.’ I didn’t have the files with me. I was like, ‘Oh no,'” she laughed.

The original “Easy” can be found on DaniLeigh’s debut album The Plan, which was released in November.

It’s unclear when the remix will drop, but DaniLeigh has been previewing it during her live shows since February. Listen to a snippet below.

Whitney Houston Estate Plans Hologram Tour and New Album

Posted by Unknown on 2:33 PM

Whitney Houston will live on as a hologram.

Seven years after her death, the late legend’s estate is planning a series of new projects, including a touring hologram, a potential Broadway musical, and an album of unreleased material.

In an interview with The New York Times, Whitney’s sister-in-law and former manager, Pat Houston, revealed why now was the right time. “Everything is about timing for me,” said Houston. “It’s been quite emotional for the past seven years. But now it’s about being strategic.”

The Whitney Houston Estate recently signed a deal with Primary Wave Music Publishing. As part of the agreement, Primary Wave will acquire 50 percent of the estate’s assets, including Houston’s music and film royalties, merchandising, and the right to exploit her name and likeness. The deal reportedly values the estate at $14 million.

Larry Mestel, Primary Wave’s founder, is already in talks with Broadway producers about a “musical and a Vegas-style spectacle,” while unreleased tracks from Whitney’s 1985 debut, Whitney Houston, will likely be included on an upcoming album.

“Whitney was America’s sweetheart, and the idea now is to remind people that that is what her legacy is,” said Mestel.

But the first order of business is a hologram, which is already under development. The Whitney hologram will perform the singer’s hits including “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” and “The Greatest Love of All” backed by her original band and backup singers, including her brother Gary.

“The hologram has taken precedence over everything,” said Pat Houston.

In 2016, a Houston hologram was slated to perform a duet of “I’m Every Woman” with Christina Aguilera during the season finale of “The Voice,” but was scrapped because it “was not ready to air,” according to Houston’s estate.

The estate is looking to revive Houston’s brand. The singer, who died at age 48, had 11 No. 1 hits and released seven albums throughout her illustrious career, including her final project I Look to You in 2009.

Future Gives Son a Rolex for His 5th Birthday

Posted by Unknown on 1:39 PM

He may only be five, but Baby Future is already rocking a Rollie.

In celebration of his son’s 5th birthday, his superstar father went all out by throwing a “Future 5” birthday party, inspired by DC Comics’ “The Flash.” He rented out an indoor race track with go-karts for Future and his friends. It was a family affair as Future’s mother and daughter were also in attendance.

“My big baby five,” Hndrxx wrote on Instagram Stories. “Thanks to everyone who came out and celebrated with my son. He happy so I’m happy and very grateful.”

Baby Future received lots of presents, but nothing could top the gift from his father, a brand new Rolex. His father filmed footage of his son opening his pricey gift.

“Thanks!” Baby Future told his dad.

That wasn’t the only celebration. Future’s mother and stepfather Russell Wilson also hosted a separate superhero-themed party for Baby Future, complete with rides, laser tag, and go-karts.

“Happy Birthday Sunshine! I can’t believe you’re 5 years old! Wow!! Mommy’s so proud of you! I love you so much!” said Ciara, while Russell also penned a heartfelt note to his stepson.

“From the moment we came into each other’s worlds to 5 yrs later, you changed my life & my heart for the better,” he said. “You are the greatest gift I couldve ever asked God for! I will always love you, guide you, teach you, & care for you. Happy 5th BDay Future! Papa Russ Loves you! @Ciara.”

Tyga Was Once Married to Tristan Thompson’s Baby Mama

Posted by Unknown on 2:36 PM

Tyga’s past is coming to light.

According to court records, obtained by TMZ, the rapper was once a married man. Tyga was wed to Jordan Craig, who has a baby with Khloé Kardashian’s ex Tristan Thompson.

Tyga and Jordan were married on September 6, 2010 and they filed for divorce exactly one month later. But Tyga may be looking to rekindle the flame. He recently started liking Jordan’s photos on Instagram.

Jordan Craig

To make things even more complicated, Tyga has a 6-year-old son with Blac Chyna, who also had a daughter with Robert Kardashian. Tyga previously dated Rob’s sister, Kylie Jenner. Meanwhile, Thompson has a 2-year-old son, Prince, with Jordan and a daughter, True, with Khloé.

Tristan may have shaded Tyga by posting (and later deleting) a photo of Prince on Friday, just hours after Tyga liked one of Jordan’s photos.

In other Tyga news, the rapper was supposed to perform at a San Diego nightclub on Friday night, but was a no show. He issued an apology on Instagram, but fans who purchased tickets may have a problem getting refunds. Management reportedly told the crowd, “Nothing could be done.”

Video: Tyler, The Creator – ‘EARFQUAKE’

Posted by Unknown on 2:48 PM

With his new album IGOR out now, Tyler, The Creator debuts the video for one of the standout tracks, “EARFQUAKE.”

The clip, which Tyler self-directed, stars Tracee Ellis Ross as Pearl Edwards, the host of an ’80s-themed talk show. She introduces her guest IGOR, whose blond bob she calls the “friendliest hair I’ve ever seen in my life.”

After some awkward banter, IGOR begins his performance, complete with a wind machine and piano. He eventually lights up a cigarette, despite being told not to, before the set catches on fire. He continues to perform, while a firefighter (also played by Tyler) extinguishes the flames.

“this video is so stupid but sick,” tweeted Tyler, who praised his “wonderful” co-star.

The Playboi Carti-assisted track can be found on Tyler’s new album IGOR, which also features Kanye West, Charlie Wilson, and CeeLo Green.

DJ Khaled to Donate Proceeds From ‘Higher’ to Nipsey Hussle’s Kids

Posted by Unknown on 2:12 PM

On Friday, DJ Khaled is set to release “Higher,” his collaboration with Nipsey Hussle.

In an open letter, Khaled spoke about the “soul-searching journey” to release the song, which also features John Legend and appears on his new album Father of Asahd.

“Recently, I embarked on a soul-searching journey down a road I never thought I would travel in a million years,” wrote Khaled. “It began when a tragedy robbed the world of an enlightened soul, a brother, a father, a partner and my friend, Nipsey Hussle.”

The music video, which will also debut Friday, was filmed atop a parking structure in Inglewood just days before Nipsey was killed outside his Marathon Clothing store in late March.

“Just days prior, he shared his energy and positivity with me on a video set for a song called, ‘Higher,'” added Khaled. “After much prayer and reflection; and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that moment with the world.”

All proceeds from the sale will benefit Nipsey’s two children, Emani and Kross. “The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul,” he said. “It is in this spirit, of moving forward, of preserving his mission that I, my co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100% of all our proceeds from ‘Higher’ to Nipsey’s children, Emani and Kross.”

Added John Legend, “Proud to be a part of this inspiring record with djkhaled and @nipseyhussle. We lost him too soon. The proceeds will go to his loved ones.”

Father of Asahd arrives at midnight. In addition to Nipsey and Legend, the album is expected to feature collaborations with Cardi B, Post Malone, SZA, Chris Brown, Big Sean, Meek Mill, and Travis Scott.

YNW Melly Says He Will Be ‘Coming Home’ From Jail

Posted by Unknown on 2:03 PM

YNW Melly is currently facing life in prison or possibly the death penalty in his double-murder trial.

Despite the serious allegations that he murdered his two friends, YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy, the “Murder on My Mind” rapper is hopeful that he will be “coming home” from jail.

During a nearly 22-minute phone call to his management team, which was posted on his Instagram page, Melly spoke to his fans from behind bars. “Melly shared a message for his fans,” wrote his team. “He appreciates all of your prayers and positive energy being sent his way.”

“I just want to let all my fans know that God is real,” says Melly (via Complex). “He has cleansed my soul, he has blessed me tremendously. […] He’s the reason I’m coming home.”

Some parts of the call are indecipherable due to the bad connection, but Melly goes on to thanks his fans for their support. “I love y’all so much,” he says. “I thank God for all y’all every day. Thank y’all for keeping me in your prayers.”

In February, the 19-year-old Florida rapper was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder stemming from the October 2018 shooting of his friends, Anthony Williams (YNW Sakchaser) and Christopher Thomas Jr. (YNW Juvy), near Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Cops say Melly and his friend Cortlen Henry (YNW Bortlen) shot the men and staged the crime to make it seem like their friends were killed during a drive-by shooting.

The State of Florida reportedly intends to seek the death penalty against Melly, who will remain in Broward County jail until a trial date has been set.

Lil Uzi Vert Says He’s Done with New Album

Posted by Unknown on 2:15 PM

The wait for Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake may finally be over.

During his performance at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami on Sunday (May 12), the Philadelphia rapper informed fans that he just completed the long-awaited project.

“I ain’t gonna lie, the other night, I finished the last song to the album,” he told the crowd at Hard Rock Stadium (via XXL). “So y’all ready for this motherfu**in’ album?” he asked as the crowd erupted in cheers.

“OK, bye,” said Uzi before dropping the mic and walking off stage.

In April, Uzi dropped a pair of singles, “That’s a Rack” and “Sanguine Paradise.” Prior to that, he released his “Free Uzi” track and signed a new management deal with Roc Nation.

Uzi’s oft-delayed sophomore album, the follow-up to 2017’s Luv Is Rage 2, has been a long time coming. In January, he announced that he was quitting music following issues with his label Generation Now.

In response to the “Free Uzi” movement, his Generation Now label bosses DJ Drama and Don Cannon gave Uzi their blessing to release Eternal Atake. “Uzi should put out EA out tomorrow or any day he wants,” Drama said in March. “He has me & Cannon’s total support and blessings to drop it!”

Offset Surprises Cardi B for Mother’s Day

Posted by Unknown on 2:45 PM

Cardi B celebrated her first Mother’s Day with some sweet surprises.

Following her set at Rolling Loud in Miami on Friday, Offset showered his wife with some lavish gifts including a pair of pink and red Birkin bags, which cost upwards of $12,000.

An emotional Cardi took to social media to show off her designer accessories. “I’m not saying I got the best husband ever, but I really got the best husband ever. Thank you, babe! I love you,” she gushed before hugging Offset.

This is Cardi’s first Mother’s Day with her daughter Kulture, who was born last July. The adorable baby can also be seen playing with an iPhone at the end of Cardi’s video, while her mother tells her to “take that out your mouth!”

Those weren’t the only gifts Offset gave Cardi. He also bought his-and-hers matching Audemars Piguet watches, iced out in diamonds.

A grateful Cardi thanked her husband for his generosity. “So happy,” she wrote. “I feel like the luckiest person in the world.”

Cardi has a lot to be thankful for this Mother’s Day. Earlier this week, she launched her second Fashion Nova collection, which has nearly sold out and raked in over $1 million in just 24 hours after going on sale.

Blac Chyna Allegedly Threatens Stylist with Knife

Posted by Unknown on 2:27 PM

Blac Chyna got into a confrontation with her hairdresser, which allegedly ended with Chyna pulling a knife on the stylist.

On Saturday morning (May 11), the model and her stylist were at Chyna’s San Fernando Valley home when an argument erupted over money Chyna alleged owed the hairdresser. According to TMZ, the woman filed a police report, claiming Chyna threatened her with a knife when the stylist asked for payment.

However, sources close to Chyna deny she pulled a knife, but claim the hairdresser threw soda cans at Chyna’s car during the melee.

Chyna’s 6-year-old son, King, whom she shares with Tyga, was supposedly present during the incident. Since a police report was filed, the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services will reportedly now get involved and perform a welfare check.

This isn’t the first time Chyna has had a confrontation with her staff. In January, police were called after she and her makeup artist got into a fight after the woman falsely claimed Chyna was drunk and endangering her daughter Dream.

Just last month, Chyna stirred even more controversy when she announced that she had been accepted to Harvard Business School Online. However, the school later denied her admission and claimed the acceptance letter was fake.

Chris Darden Withdraws From Nipsey Hussle Murder Case

Posted by Unknown on 2:48 PM

Christopher Darden, the attorney representing Nipsey Hussle’s alleged murderer Eric Holder, is quitting the case.

Darden, a former city prosecutor from the O.J. Simpson murder trial, filed a motion to withdraw as Holder’s defense attorney following death threats to him and his family.

“I cannot understand why in 2019 some people would deny a black man his 6th Amendment right to counsel of his choice,” writes Darden in a Facebook post. “Or why defending such a man should invite threats not only against me but against my children too.”

While he didn’t reveal the exact reasons behind his withdrawal (“I don’t know whether I will disclose them later or not”), he did have a message for those who threatened his life and his family’s. “To those who issued those threats to my children please pay close attention so there is no misunderstanding. Later. FUCK YOU!” he says. “As for me, I continue to thrive. I continue to be loved. I continue to walk with kings. And I will continue my pursuit of fairness and justice on behalf of my clients and others charged with crimes.”

Darden’s decision to defend Holder has been controversial, receiving backlash from the hip-hop community. But that hasn’t swayed him. “I will continue my pursuit of fairness and justice on behalf of my clients and others charged with crimes,” he adds. “After 25 years some of them still haven’t learned : Their lies and threats will never deter me from my mission.”

Holder has a hearing scheduled for Friday in L.A. Superior Court, which Darden says will be the last time he makes an appearance in court in the case.

Last month, Holder was arrested and charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon following the fatal shooting of Nipsey outside of his Marathon Clothing store.

Shots Fired at Studio Where Offset Was Recording

Posted by Unknown on 2:18 PM

Offset is safe after a shooting at a studio where he was recording.

Cops tell TMZ that the Migos rapper was inside Crossover Entertainment Group in Atlanta on Wednesday night (May 8) when it was riddled with bullets during a drive-by shooting. Officers responded after shots were fired into the building, but Offset left by the time authorities arrived.

At least one witness believes that Offset was the target of the shooting. Cops have yet to speak to the rapper, but are planning to contact him as they proceed with the investigation.

According to the Atlanta Police Department, passengers in a passing car opened fire at the studio around 9 p.m. The bullets damaged three vehicles as well as the building’s exterior and at least one apartment window. Someone reportedly was shot in the leg, but officers were unable to confirm.

The drive-by reportedly occurred shortly after Offset went outside for a few minutes. When the gunshots rang out, people inside the studio rushed to safety in another room until things settled down.

TMZ has obtained surveillance footage from the drive-by shooting, which shows someone leaning out of the passenger window of a moving vehicle while firing shots.

Lil Wayne Splits with Manager Cortez Bryant

Posted by Unknown on 1:55 PM

Lil Wayne is under new management.

The Young Money rapper parted ways with his longtime manager Cortez Bryant last year, it was recently revealed. According to The Blast, Wayne “terminated” Bryant and his Blueprint Group sometime in 2018. The split reportedly occurred prior to the release of Tha Carter V in September.

While neither has publicly addressed their relationship, Wayne alluded to problems during an interview with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” back in October. “I’m so into what I’m doing every day, meaning my craft, that when I have to go too far into something else, I put somebody else in charge of it when there’s somebody else that was in charge of it that messes up, then everything blows up,” he said. “And that’s how everything blew up. We just needed the debris to clear.”

Fans had become unhappy with Wayne’s management team following the lengthy delay of Tha Carter V, which was in limbo for several years while Wayne was involved in a legal battle with Cash Money.

Wayne is now reportedly being managed by his former assistant Devon Diaz and Young Money president Mack Maine. The rapper’s former lawyer, Ronald Sweeney, is suing Bryant and Maine, claiming they conspired to get him fired in order to keep money for themselves. Sweeney is suing for defamation and seeking unspecified damages for the millions he believes he lost from future Wayne commissions.

Nicki Minaj also recently split with Bryant, who along with Gee Roberson, managed her as part of Blueprint/Maverick Management.

Earlier this week, Wayne announced a co-headlining tour with blink-182. The 38-city trek kicks off June 27 in Columbus, Ohio, before hitting cities including Toronto, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Detroit, and Chicago.

Chris Brown Says ‘Indigo’ Will Feature 30 Tracks

Posted by Unknown on 2:45 PM

Chris Brown’s Indigo will be a star-studded celebration.

The singer, who celebrates his 30th birthday today, has revealed that his upcoming ninth album will feature a whopping 30 tracks. In response to an Instagram post about his chart stats, he let his fans in on the secret.

“IM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS INDIGO ALBUM NOW! ( oh, and just to let y’all in on a lil secret) IM TURNING 30 so there will be 30 songs on this one. SORRY NOT SORRY,” wrote Breezy.

Chris Brown Caption

He previously shared some of the guests who will appear on the 30 tracks including Drake, Justin Bieber, Tory Lanez, Tyga, Tank, H.E.R., Juvenile, Joyner Lucas, Gunna, and Juicy J. Nicki Minaj and G-Eazy also join Chris on the previously-released single “Wobble Up.”

While 30 tracks may sound like a lot, his last album featured even more music. 2017’s double-disc set Heartbreak on a Full Moon had 45 songs, while the deluxe edition contained a staggering 57 tracks.

And there’s plenty of more music waiting in the wings. In a 2017 interview with “Ebro in the Morning,” Brown revealed that he has no shortage of unreleased music. “In my phone alone, right now, I have like 800 songs that nobody’s heard,” he said. “Not bragging. It’s just that my work ethic only allows me to stay creative.”

Travis Scott and Kid Cudi Get Matching ‘Rager’ Tattoos

Posted by Unknown on 3:06 PM

Travis Scott celebrated his 28th birthday with friends and family during an epic rager.

On Tuesday (April 30), Kylie Jenner transformed a Universal Studios backlot into a gas station convenience store, complete with Travis-branded items including paper towels, glass cleaner, and laundry detergent, as well as a tattoo parlor. The birthday boy and billionaire beauty mogul got his-and-hers tattoos, while Travis and Kid Cudi got matching tattoos of their own.

The tats, done by NYC artist Jonboy, feature the word “Rager” on their hands. Scott’s photographer RAYSCORRUPTEDMIND shared a photo of the rappers holding up their hands while striking similar poses.

A post shared by c/s ∴jon✞boy∴ p/v (@jonboytattoo) on

Scott has long idolized Cudi, whose alter ego is Mr. Rager, and considers him his favorite artist. The two have collaborated on a series of songs including “Through the Late Night,” “Way Back,” and “Baptized in Fire.”

“I idolize Kid Cudi a lot,” Travis told Apple Music last year. “That’s like, my favorite artist. I think he can go bar for bar. Some people think JAY-Z is the best rapper. I feel like he can compete with that and still have his own wave. I fuck with him because he always had his own lingo. He created a world for kids like me, who wasn’t just the ultimate drug dealer. He created that vibe and that planet, where you can mack on bitches and still be smooth, and still feel like you’re the king scientist. Not everyone is as real as their music is. That artist comes once every decade.”

In addition to Cudi, Travis was also joined by Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Young Thug, French Montana, G-Eazy, and Machine Gun Kelly during his birthday bash.
