Normani Covers Rihanna, Aaliyah at ‘Sweetener World Tour’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:45 PM

Normani shined bright like a diamond during opening night of the “Sweetener World Tour.”

Before Ariana Grande took the stage at Albany’s Times Union Center on Monday night (Mar. 18), the former Fifth Harmony songstress dazzled fans with a stunning set of her own.

In addition to performing her singles “Waves” and “Love Lies” and Fifth Harmony classics like “Work From Home” and “Worth It,” Normani paid homage to her idols including Rihanna. Donning a sparkly black catsuit, she started the stripped-down medley with “Diamonds” before continuing with “Where Have You Been,” “We Found Love,” and “Run This Town.”

“We’re gonna take this moment to do a medley of one of my favorite artists who goes by the name of Rihanna,” Normani told the crowd. “I just think that she’s responsible for so many of my greatest memories.”

The performance was celebrated on social media, but not everyone was impressed. When one Twitter commenter asked why she was covering Rihanna, Normani shot back, “cause I can.”

During Monday’s show, Normani also honored the late Aaliyah with a cover of “One in a Million.” Watch her pay tribute to Babygirl below.

Soulja Boy Released From Jail, Says He’s ‘Not Going Out Like 6ix9ine’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:18 PM

Soulja Boy is a free man.

Just hours after being arrested for a probation violation on Friday (Mar. 15), Big Drako was released from custody. And he didn’t waste any time, returning to Instagram Live to celebrate his freedom.

“Yeah, ni**a, I’m out, ni**a!” said Soulja. “Big Drako, ni**a, I’m out of jail! This shit ain’t gon’ stop, bruh! Y’all got me fucked up! I had the biggest comeback of 2018, bruh!”

During his celebratory rant, he also cracked a joke at the expense of 6ix9ine, who remains in jail after accepting a plea deal in his federal racketeering case. “Ni**as tryna hate on me and shit, bruh. I’m not going out like 6ix9ine, bruh! You got me fucked up,” he added while showing off his intimate wristband.

Soulja said he was behind bars with the “Bloods and Crips” before declaring himself the “hottest rapper in the game.”

Despite his arrest, that didn’t stop him from taking the court at halftime during the Clippers vs. Bulls game at L.A.’s Staples Center, where he performed his 2007 hit “Crank That (Soulja Boy).”

Earlier in the day, he was arrested for a probation violation after police previously searched his Agoura Hills, Calif. home and found ammunition while investigating an alleged kidnapping. He was handcuffed and taken to a Van Nuys jail during a visit to his probation officer.

Soulja’s lawyer, Fred Minassian, tells TMZ that the judge released him pending a hearing on March 29. “There was no finding in regards to his probation violation,” says Minassian.

Drake and his son are closer than ever.

After coming to terms with fatherhood, Drake is apparently getting accustomed to his role as dad.

According to TMZ, the rapper is growing closer and closer to his son Adonis, telling everyone how much he adores the 1-year-old.

After a rocky start, Drake and his baby mama, Sophie Brussaux, now have a drama free relationship and have been “seamlessly” co-parenting Adonis, which in turn has led to a strong father-son bond. Drake reportedly FaceTimes Adonis every day and wants to be around him all the time, but his touring schedule gets in the way.

Drake Adonis Tattoo

According to sources, Drake sends photos of his son to friends and family and even has Adonis’ picture as his phone wallpaper. He also recently got a tattoo of his baby boy on his right forearm.

Drake rolled out the red carpet for Sophie when his “Assassination Vacation Tour” pulled into Paris this week. He also charters private jets so she and Adonis can fly to see him.

As for Adonis, he is following in his mother’s artistic footsteps. Sophie, who is a painter, has been teaching Adonis multiple languages and exposing him to art. For Christmas, he gifted his dad with his handprints in paint.

“Adonis > Picasso don’t @ me,” wrote his proud father.

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:53 PM

Hot on the heels of his new single, ScHoolboy Q unleashes the epic video for “Numb Numb Juice.”

In the ’90s-inspired clip, directed by Dave Free and Jack Begert, Q hops out his old school BMW like jack in the box while painting the street with a red roller. Wearing a gold Versace robe, he presides over a palatial mansion with naked women and stacks of cash, and even recreates Bad Boy’s classic “Mo Money Mo Problems” video—complete with red shiny jackets.

In the final scene, Groovy Q faces off with a rival on the roof of a downtown L.A. high-rise before bitch slapping him, sending him straight to hell. A wig-wearing Tyler, the Creator makes a cameo along with TDE’s own Jay Rock.

“Numb Numb Juice” is the lead single off Q’s long-awaited album, the follow-up to 2016’s Blank Face LP.

Mariah Carey rings up her pal from across the pond, Stefflon Don, for the remix to “A No No.”

Over a sample of Lil’ Kim’s ’90s classic “Crush On You” featuring The Notorious B.I.G., the Birmingham MC sets the track ablaze. “Burn down your house like Lisa Left Eye / Ain’t no ni**a left, aye,” raps Steff in her British-Jamaican accent.

“A No No” is the latest single off Mariah’s album Caution, which was released in November. Last week, she dropped the music video.

There were rumors that the remix would feature Cardi B and Lil’ Kim. During her appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” last fall, Mariah shared her wishes for a collaboration. “I would love for that to happen,” she told Andy Cohen. “I was hoping that the three of us could do a collaboration.”

Report: Drake and Future Ready ‘What a Time to Be Alive 2’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:33 PM

Drake and Future may be up to something.

The OVO and Freebandz rappers topped the charts with What a Time to Be Alive, and another installment may be on the way. OnSMASH reports that the two have completed a sequel to their 2015 collaborative project, which will feature “entirely new music” that was not left over from their past recording sessions.

It’s unclear if and when the project will drop. According to the report, Drake may be the deciding factor if WATTBA2 sees a release.

The original What a Time to Be Alive dropped in September 2015 featuring production from Metro Boomin and Southside. It opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and was certified platinum.

Neither Drake nor Future have addressed the rumors, but Future alluded to a busy year ahead. In January, he dropped his album The WIZRD and he is reportedly planning HNDRXX 2.

“2019 productive, it’s already productive. Every day I have something to do,” the prolific MC told Zane Lowe earlier this year. “Every day they have something for me to do, or I got some business to handle.”

Drake is also working on a new album of his own, the follow-up to last year’s Scorpion, and recently teased new music. He is currently on his “Assassination Vacation Tour” with Tory Lanez. The European trek kicked off March 10 and travels through April 26 in Amsterdam.

Nipsey Hussle and Meek Mill are bringing the heat this summer.

During a recent interview with Bootleg Kev and DJ Hed at L.A.’s Real 92.3, Nipsey revealed that he and Meek have a joint project in the works.

“We’ve been cutting ideas and just getting in. We got a couple records that’s gonna go off for the summer,” said the All Money In boss, who declined to reveal how many tracks they’ve recorded.

However, he did share that they’re eyeing a “summertime” release. “It’s not hard at all. We just got to lock in and get the records done,” he added.

Meek acknowledged the joint effort, retweeting Billboard’s story and adding a series of eyeball emojis.

Nipsey is also working on a new album of his own, the follow-up to last year’s Grammy-nominated Victory Lap. Last month, he dropped the lead single “Racks in the Middle” featuring Roddy Ricch and Hit-Boy.

Additionally, he is featured on an unnamed track off DJ Khaled’s upcoming album Father of Asahd, due in May. “It’s a solo record with somebody doing the hook,” he revealed. “It’s a real record. It’s a real Nipsey Hussle record.”

Kodak Black Show Gets Extra Security After Lil Wayne Beef

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:06 PM

New Orleans police are on high alert in the wake of Kodak Black’s beef with Lil Wayne.

The “ZEZE” rapper has a show scheduled at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts in Weezy’s hometown on Thursday (Mar. 14) and the venue is taking precautions to avoid any violence. According to TMZ, the venue’s owners are afraid that Kodak’s recent comments will have some Weezy fans out for revenge.

Last weekend, Kodak was at Miami’s LIV nightclub and expected to see Wayne. When he didn’t show, Kodak got upset and grabbed the mic, lashing out at his “Codeine Dreaming” collaborator.

“Where Lil Wayne at? … You fuckin’ maggot,” he told the crowd. “You should’ve died when you was a baby.”

After the LIV video surfaced, Lil Wayne’s daughter, Reginae Carter, came to her father’s defense. “You new lil rappers need to start giving props and respect to the Goat. My father don’t bother nobody,” she wrote. “He won’t even react to what was said . This man be in his own world so leave him tf alone.”

Kodak returned fire, calling her Wayne’s “little bald-headed daughter.” “Nobody ain’t say nothing to that little girl,” he said. “First of all, nobody ain’t say nothing about your daddy, so don’t be coming at me like that. I ain’t no shawty, I ain’t no peon.”

Reginae’s mother, Toya Wright, also weighed in (“Boy F#CK you”), prompting Kodak to respond: “@toyawright If I Ain’t Have No Girlfriend I’ll Fuck Da Shit Out Yo Fine Ass.”

Security at the Mahalia Jackson Theater will be monitoring social media for any threats about the show. New Orleans police will also provide extra security to ensure Kodak’s safety.

21 Savage Sued for $1 Million Over Club Gig

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:27 PM

21 Savage is facing more legal troubles.

The rapper is now being sued for $1 million after a club promoter says he blew off a 2016 gig. The District Attorney in Liberty County, Georgia recently dropped the case, deeming it a civil matter.

According to TMZ, the promoter, Sadaetirs Kent Smith, is taking Savage to court for allegedly bailing on the performance in September 2016. Smith also claims Savage never returned the $16,500 he had been paid.

In October 2016, the promoter got a felony warrant against Savage for theft by deception, but never pursued charges, until 21 was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Feb. 3. Smith is suing for $1 million, saying the breach of contract caused severe emotional distress.

Meanwhile, 21 Savage is facing deportation after being released on bond last month. He has applied for a visa to stay in the U.S., but the process could take years.

R. Kelly’s Girlfriends Defend Singer, Deny Being Brainwashed

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:12 PM

After R. Kelly’s explosive interview with Gayle King, where he denied allegations of sexual abuse, the singer’s live-in girlfriends are speaking out.

Sitting down with King for “CBS This Morning,” Azriel Clary, 21, and Joycelyn Savage, 23, who have been living with Kelly, defended their relationship with the 52-year-old singer, saying that they are in love with him.

During the tearful interview, they dismissed claims by their parents that they have been brainwashed, with Clary calling her father a “manipulative liar.” Clary also alleged that her parents tried to persuade her to film a sexual encounter with Kelly when she was underage.

“When I first met Robert, my parents told me to lie about my age,” said Clary. “So when I met him, he thought that I was 18. On top of that, when I was 17, my parents were actually making me, trying to get me to take photos with him, take sexual videos with him, all kinds of stuff… And they said, because if they ever have to blackmail him, what they’re trying to do now, they can use it against him, which is exactly what they’re doing.”

Savage concurred with Clary, accusing her parents of extortion. “Both our parents are basically out here trying to get money and scam ’cause they didn’t agree on what happened,” she said.

Added Clary, “My dad and my mom, they started to send threats to both me and [Kelly]. They said, ‘Oh, I’ll put all your naked pictures all over the world. I’m going to ruin you, I’m going to ruin him. If he doesn’t send $20,000 to this bank account by Monday, oh, I’m gonna put everything out there, and then $10,000 after that.’ You’re trying to solicit me like I’m some fucking ho. I’m not, I’m your child.”

Later in the interview, she broke down in tears. “I’m crying because you guys don’t know the truth, you guys are believing some fucking facade that our parents are saying,” said Clary. “This is all fucking lies for money and if you can’t see that, you’re ignorant and you’re stupid as fuck.”

Both women’s parents deny asking for or receiving any money from Kelly. “We have unequivocally denied allegations that the Savage family received money from Robert Kelly,” said Gerald Griggs, a lawyer for Savage’s parents. “At no point was money given to the Savage family, discussed with the Savage family, requested by the Savage family or offered to the Savage family.”

Kelly’s team told King that the singer would not be in the room for the interview, but he was reportedly present. “After the interview started, he was around the corner behind them,” said King. “But at points during the conversation he would cough very loudly so they were aware that he was there.”

During his interview with King, Kelly denied the sexual abuse charges, saying he is a victim of a smear campaign. An extended version of the interview is set to air Friday, March 8, at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Is Meek Mill Dissing Nicki Minaj and Her New Man on Leaked Snippet?

Posted by YeezysWorld on 12:54 PM

Meek Mill is taking aim at an ex on a leaked snippet of a new song.

On Monday (Mar. 4), Houston Rockets guard James Harden previewed an unreleased track from the Philly rapper on Instagram Stories. The song has raised eyebrows as it finds Meek rapping about an unnamed ex-girlfriend and her new man. But it has some fans wondering if the lyrics are about Nicki Minaj and her new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty.

“This shit beyond me, you were supposed to be my BeyoncΓ© / Now you this ni**a fiancΓ©e?” raps Meek. “Fuck you mean you feel a connection? / He listen to you, what? / This ni**a wear Balenciaga with boot-cut jeans / What the fuck you losing your mind? / Ayo, call my fucking phone back, yo.”

He continues to take shots at the unnamed couple. “Everytime you post this ni**a wanna smoke this ni**a / We just broke up last year, how you know this ni**a? / You was cheating on me or sleeping on me?” he continues. “Man, fuck all that / You with this bum-ass ni**a, he ain’t up like that / Real ni**a to a weirdo, he ain’t cut like that / Twelve rounds in that pussy, he don’t fuck like that.”

After the song surfaced, Meek responded to the speculation on Twitter. “Stop the bap I’m like on my 6 girl in the last 2 years let me live,” he tweeted. “Y’all gotta hear the whole thing first ….. just chill.”

Following Meek and Nicki’s breakup in 2016, Nicki has moved on with Petty. The two reportedly met when Nicki was a teenager living in Queens and reconnected late last year. They vacationed together for Nicki’s 36th birthday in December and have reportedly even discussed marriage.

50 Cent Developing TV Series About Sex Money Murder Gang

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:18 PM

50 Cent is expanding his television empire.

The rap mogul, who brought “Power” to the screen, is producing a new crime drama series inspired by New York City’s infamous Sex Money Murder gang and their leader Peter “Pistol Pete” Rollack.

Fif took to Instagram on Saturday (Mar. 2) to announce the news. “Oscar award winning producer @nicolerocklin partners with ya Boy 50 to create the hit Tv show Sex Money Murder ( The Pistol Pete story),” he captioned his post. “I get the πŸ’° bag.”

According to XXL, Sex Money Murder is a Blood sect that originated in the Soundview section of the Bronx around the late 1980s. Led by Pistol Pete, the organization had a reputation for peddling narcotics and violently dealing with rivals on the streets of NYC. In late 2000, Pete was charged with seven murders and sentenced to life without parole in federal prison.

The series will reportedly be based on author Jonathan Green’s 2018 book Sex Money Murder: A Story of Crack, Blood and Betrayal and produced by Nicole Rocklin, who won the Academy Award for Spotlight in 2016.

Fifty continues to make his mark on Hollywood. In addition to serving as executive producer of Starz’ hit series “Power,” he is developing a television show based on the rise and fall of Atlanta’s Black Mafia Family.

Cardi B Breaks RodeoHouston Attendance Record

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:12 PM

Cardi B is making more “Money” moves.

The Grammy-winning rapper set a record while making her debut at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo at NRG Park on Friday night (Mar. 1). Tickets sold out in 40 minutes, according to the Houston Chronicle.

A whopping 75,580 people showed up to party with Cardi, breaking the all-time paid attendance record and beating Garth Brooks’ second 2018 performance by three people.

Cardi dressed for the occasion, rocking a sparkly pink and blue cowgirl outfit, complete with matching hat, hair, and boots. Flanked by 10 dancers, she performed her biggest hits including “I Like It,” “Finesse,” and “Bodak Yellow.”

Taking to Instagram after the show, Cardi reflected on the milestone moment while standing alongside a picture of the late Selena, who inspired her “Please Me” video look. “I just want to say that I’m honored for beating the Houston Rodeo show,” said Cardi. “I was so nervous to perform in front of 75,000-plus people, but when I saw this picture, like, out of all the outfits that she wore…this was the inspiration for ‘Please Me.'”

Cardi’s performance on Black Heritage Day was reportedly a response to the criticism that plagued last year’s performer Leon Bridges. The Texas-born singer drew a paid attendance of 51,870, the lowest of 2018.

RodeoHouston has drawn some of the world’s biggest performers including BeyoncΓ©, Elvis Presley, Ariana Grande, Janet Jackson, Taylor Swift, and Justin Bieber.

Ty Dolla $ign Strikes Deal to Have Drug Charges Dropped

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:21 PM

Ty Dolla $ign could be off the hook in his drug possession case.

Last September, the singer and his crew were pulled over while driving outside Atlanta. During a search of the vehicle, officers discovered weed and arrested Ty. He was charged with possessing less than an ounce of marijuana and possession of cocaine.

After striking a deal with prosecutors last week, Ty’s record will be wiped clean as long as he remains out of trouble for the next few months.

According to court documents, obtained by TMZ, Ty must enter an online drug prevention program and refrain from weed and prescription drugs as part of Georgia’s Second Chance program, which typically lasts 13 weeks. He will also be subject to random drug testing.

If he complies with the terms, then all charges, two felonies and a misdemeanor, will be dropped.

The deal was struck after Ty’s attorney, Steve Sadow, met with prosecutors and pointed out weaknesses in the case.

Tyga Club Fight Erupts Over Repossessed Maybach

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:36 PM

Tyga was dragged out of Floyd Mayweather’s birthday party over the weekend, and now more details have emerged as to why.

Witnesses tell TMZ that moments before the incident inside Hollywood’s Sunset Room on Saturday night, Tyga was approached by several men who had leased him a white Maybach.

Tyga was paying $6,000 a month for the luxury vehicle, but he reportedly fell behind on his payments and the vehicle was repossessed last month. Tyga ran into the men at the party and an argument ensued before Tyga reportedly threatened them.

That’s when security grabbed the “Taste” rapper by the neck and dragged him out of the club. Cameras captured Tyga trying to pull a gun from his bodyguard’s holster before fleeing the scene in his Rolls-Royce.

The heated argument was triggered because Tyga felt the Maybach was unlawfully repossessed. This is the second Maybach Tyga has had repo’d. He also had his Ferrari taken back.

But the beef has already blown over. Tyga has apparently squashed his issues and made up with the repo men as well as the club bouncer.

Watch Bhad Bhabie’s ‘Bestie’ Video Featuring DMX

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:31 PM

Go bestie! Bhad Bhabie thrills in the video for her Kodak Black-assisted single “Bestie,” which features a surprise cameo from DMX.

The horror-themed clip stars Danielle Bregoli and her best friend, a masked psycho killer clown. After attacking a man with a mallet, they sit down to eat with their scared dinner guests, and the main course is the head of their victim, who raps Kodak’s verse. After some blatant product placement, Bhad Bhabie and her bestie dance in the kitchen and wreak more havoc.

The psycho clown eventually removes his mask to reveal himself as DMX. “I can’t go nowhere with this bitch again,” says X, who was released from prison last month after completing a one-year sentence for tax evasion. “She’s fuckin’ crazy.”

According to TMZ, Danielle is a big fan of X so she reached out and he was down. As for Kodak, he wasn’t able to fit the shoot into his schedule.

Watch the unlikely duo terrorize the neighborhood.

Ja Rule Blasts Critics After Halftime Performance Goes Viral

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:27 PM

Ja Rule can’t seem to catch a break.

Following the Fyre Festival fiasco, the rapper took the court for a halftime performance during the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves game on Saturday (Feb. 23). But not everyone was feeling it.

The set was billed as part of a ’90s-themed night, but Ja questioned why they booked a 2000s artist. “They said this is ’90s night, so they brought out a 2000s artist,” he laughed. “But my album came out in 1999, so I guess that counts.”

Ja tried to start his set, but tech issues caused a delay. “Are we ready?” he asked the crowd at Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum before receiving a tepid response. “I guess not,” he added.

Wearing a Bucks jersey, he went on to perform hits like “Livin’ It Up” and “I’m Real.” With three-and-a-half minutes left in halftime, the Bucks returned to the court to warm up while Ja was still performing.

The performance went viral and Ja was ridiculed on social media, with SB Nation calling it “the second-biggest disaster he’s been involved in.”

But Ja fired back at those knocking his performance. “Y’all really be on my dick,” he tweeted. “Let’s be CLEAR my sound was fucked up at first and didn’t come on when it was supposed to but I rocked that bitch… thanks for the love Milwaukee!!! Great win my streak continues… lol.”

Even the Timberwolves had some fun at Ja’s expense. “We too were hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray!!!” wrote the team’s official Twitter account.

In response, Ja put a curse on the Bucks’ opponent. “You just jinx yourself talking to the GOD this way… your CURSED NOW!!! You won’t win a championship for the next 30 years,” he tweeted. “AND KAT IS LEAVING!!! Apologize and I’ll lift the CURSE!!! kiss of death…”

Nicki Minaj Cancels Show Due to Technical Difficulties

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:21 PM

Nicki Minaj was forced to cancel her show in Slovakia Friday due to technical difficulties.

The rapper was scheduled to perform at Bratislava’s Ondrej Nepela Arena on the second stop of her “Nicki WRLD Tour,” but the venue couldn’t handle the technical aspects of her stage. According to TMZ, the transformers shut down and the arena suffered several outages as a result.

But despite the tech issues, Nicki still made an effort to spend time with her Barbz. She appeared on stage to explain to the audience what went wrong and spent several hours walking around the arena greeting fans.

“I want to say thank you so much for coming, but there’s something we have to tell you,” she said. “First of all, I fucking love you, number one. And we’ve been trying for hours to get the show to work and the building says they don’t have the power in this building to make this show work. And I feel horrible ’cause you guys have been here for hours and they’ve been trying everything they possibly can.”

Taking to Instagram, a heartbroken Nicki addressed the unexpected cancelation. “Gutted. Heart broken. I can’t believe my fans sometimes,” she wrote. “After waiting for hours & hours, they still tried to be understanding. Production was told the building does not have the power to facilitate my lifts (which don’t only move me below & very VERY high above the stage, but also move all our props, furniture, dancers, band, etc.), our lighting rig, fog, cryo, confetti, movies/visuals. They’d get the show powered up then the breaker would basically trip after a few mins.”

She also vowed to make it up to her Slovakian fans. “Slovakia, I love you so much & I’ll do everything in my power to get back to you as soon as I can,” she added. “I think the venue/promo team probably didn’t expect a rap show to have such over the top production. We run the risk of someone getting hurt if we start the show & smthng malfunctions mid-show. Sorry we couldn’t have a great night together.”

Some of my fans came from Austria, Nigeria, etc. I met w/a lot of them & they had the best, sweetest energy. I’m so disappointed. Slovakia, I love you so much & I’ll do everything in my power to get back to you as soon as I can. I think the venue/promo team probably didn’t expect a rap show to have such over the top production. We run the risk of someone getting hurt if we start the show & smthng malfunctions mid-show. Sorry we couldn’t have a great night together. We’ll be in Poland on Sunday @ a building that can facilitate our show. ♥πŸ™πŸ½
