Drake Sues Woman Over False Pregnancy, Rape Claims

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:54 PM

Drake is taking legal action against a woman who claims he got her pregnant and made false rape allegations against him.

According to TMZ, the Toronto rapper is suing Layla Lace, who he met last year during his “Boy Meets World Tour” in Manchester, England. Following one of his concerts in February 2017, they had consensual sex at his hotel. “Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex,” according to the suit.

In the lawsuit, filed by celebrity lawyer Larry Stein, Drake claims Layla was upset when Drake sent her home rather than take her on tour with him. Drake says she created a “fantasy relationship” with him and would send him text messages, saying how much she missed him.

In April 2017, she took to Instagram, claiming she was pregnant. “So I guess still in this era this is the new thing that after you tell a dude you pregnant they stop answering they phone!!!” she wrote.

She also went on SiriusXM and announced that Drake got her pregnant, and allegedly threatened to publicly leak messages from him.

In May 2017, Layla demanded money for her alleged baby and threatened Drake with defamation after TMZ ran a story saying that he had never met her. Layla reportedly refused to take a paternity test. Drake says the whole thing was a scam and there is “no credible evidence of pregnancy.”

After her failed attempt, Layla went to authorities in New York and alleged Drake had raped her during their one-night stand. Layla reportedly hired a new lawyer who demanded money or else they would make the rape complaint public.

Manchester police interviewed Drake and ultimately cleared him. However, Layla sought millions of dollars in exchange for silence.

Drake is now seeking unspecified damages for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.

Machine Gun Kelly Accused of Tricking Fans Into Anti-Eminem Photo

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:42 PM

Machine Gun Kelly is coming under fire for duping fans into supporting his anti-Eminem movement.

During his opening set on Fall Out Boy’s “Mania Tour,” the Cleveland rapper performed his Eminem diss “Rap Devil.” But prior to the performance at Orlando’s Amway Center on Sunday (Sept. 16), MGK turned his back to the crowd for a photo and told them to put their middle fingers up.

He then took off his sweatshirt to reveal a T-shirt with Eminem’s “Killshot” artwork. It appeared to those not in attendance that fans were co-signing his Eminem attack, which did not sit well with everyone.

“Tell them the truth Kelly,” wrote one concertgoer. “Let them know this was Fall Out Boy’s crowd. Let your fans know that you had on a jacket and asked the crowd if they can put up their middle fingers up for a picture (not telling them what the picture is for). Tell them how you turned away from the crowd took off the jacket to expose that shirt then had the pic taken. Then got booed when you revealed that shirt to the crowd. Stop fakin.”

Another fan added, “So let’s talk about how this MGK guy seems to be pulling some desperate moves to try and act like he didn’t just get bodied by #Eminem.”

Fall Out Boy’s fans also called out MGK for his antics. “Stop using us Fall Out Boy fans as your pawn in this childish feud. It was ugly to exploit Fall Out Boy and us fans that way,” wrote the concertgoer. “None of us were there to see you. At least 90% of people there weren’t.”

MGK later posted the photo in question to Instagram. “He missed,” he wrote in the caption.

There is also video circulating of MGK performing “Rap Devil” to the sound of boos. While there was some disapproval, it appears that the video has been edited to make the booing sound worse than it was. The original video can be seen below.

Drake Breaks Record for Most Weeks at No. 1 in a Year

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:48 PM

Drake continues to make chart history.

The rapper’s smash “In My Feelings” tops the Billboard Hot 100 for a 10th week and breaks another record in the process. The 6 God now leads the Hot 100 for a 29th week in 2018, the most time atop the chart in a single year, thanks to his three Scorpion singles–“Feelings,” “Nice for What,” and “God’s Plan.” The previous record holder was Usher, who totaled 28 weeks at No. 1 in 2004.

Drake also becomes the first soloist with three songs that have topped the Hot 100 for at least 10 weeks each. They include “In My Feelings,” “God’s Plan,” and 2016’s “One Dance” featuring WizKid and Kyla.

Elsewhere in the top 10, Kanye West and Lil Pump’s “I Love It” debuts at No. 6. The song tops the Streaming Songs chart with 46.6 million first-week U.S. streams, thanks in part to the viral “I Love It” Challenge.

Cardi B’s Maroon 5 collaboration “Girls Like You” holds at No. 2 for a sixth week, followed by the Bad Bunny and J Balvin-assisted “I Like It” at No. 3. 6ix9ine’s “FEFE” featuring Nicki Minaj drops 4-7, and Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” sits at No. 8.

Drake Brings Out Meek Mill in Philadelphia

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:54 PM

It’s litty again. After squashing their beef and uniting on stage in Boston last weekend, Drake once again brought out Meek Mill during his show in Philadelphia on Saturday night (Sept. 15).

The Dreamchasers MC surprised the hometown crowd during the latest stop on Drake and Migos’ “Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour” at the Wells Fargo Center. Drizzy introduced the “king of Philly” and played hype man as Meek performed his “Dreams and Nightmares” intro before the two hugged it out onstage.

Following their reunion in Boston on Sept. 8, Drake reflected on bringing closure to the feud. “This really gave me peace of mind tonight,” he wrote on Instagram. “Healing and moving forward created one of the most electric and gratifying moments of my career. @meekmill I’m happy that you are home and that we could find our way back to our joint purpose.”

Saturday’s concert was the first of two Philly shows on the “Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour,” which returns to the Wells Fargo Center tonight before continuing to Nashville, Miami, New Orleans, and Dallas.

Eminem Denies Dissing Drake on ‘Kamikaze’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:27 PM

Slim Shady doesn’t have beef with the 6 God.

While he did take aim at Machine Gun Kelly, Joe Budden, and Tyler, the Creator on his surprise album Kamikaze, Eminem shuts down rumors that he was dissing Drake.

In the fourth and final installment of his interview with Sway, the Detroit rapper was asked about his controversial verse on Kamikaze. “You got some views, but you’re still below me / Mine are higher, so when you compare our views, you get overlooked / And I don’t say the hook unless I wrote the hook,” he raps on “Fall.”

Many interpreted the lyrics as a subliminal shot at Drake by referencing his 2016 album Views and his alleged ghostwriting. However, Eminem denies having any issues with the Scorpion rapper, who he collaborated with on “Forever” in 2009.

“Drake is always gonna be in my good graces because he did something for one of my daughter’s that I will never forget,” said Em. “He will always be in my graces with that. And I like Drake.”

He went on to clarify his ghostwriting comments. “What I’m telling you with these lines is I don’t know what’s real and what’s not at this point because you hear shit about this rapper, that rapper, whatever. I’m telling you that I don’t do it. Never have and never will. If I ever need a ghostwriter, I need to just fucking put the mic down. That’s my personal belief.”

While he doesn’t have an issue with rappers who use ghostwriters, he would never personally use one. “As far as anybody out here that does use ghostwriters, that’s fine. If that’s what you do, that’s fine. I’m telling you I don’t do it,” he continued. “Hip-hop, since it’s beginning, I was always under the impression that every rapper wrote their rhymes and when you heard about Kool Moe Dee battling Busy Bee it was who was bringing the best rhymes to the table. Who’s the cleverest and the wittiest. And then years later, fast forward, you hear Eazy-E saying, ‘Ice Cube writes the rhymes that I say.’ I remember hearing the line, but I just really didn’t care.”

As for Drake, Eminem remains a fan. “He makes great music. There’s not really even much you can say about it,” he said. “On this Kamikaze album, I feel like I was pretty direct about who I was kinda taking shots at. I wouldn’t send subliminals to Drake. There would be no reason for me to do that. But I am expressing to you that regardless of what any of these other dudes do, I have never, not even a line, not even anything. I wouldn’t be able to have fun with it if I couldn’t write it.”

The conversation turned to the Grammys, who Em calls out on “Fall.” “Then tell the Grammys to go and fuck themselves, they suck the blood from all the biggest artists like some leeches / So they nominate ’em, get ’em there, get a name to ’em / See the show, every parasite needs a host,” he raps.

Eminem, who has won 15 Grammys throughout his career, explains why he has beef with the awards show. “For whatever reason, they’re always pitching this hint that you might win Album of the Year, which used to be a big deal. I don’t think it’s a big deal now. Sat at home this year for the Grammys and watched Jay and Kendrick not get it. I felt like one of them should’ve got it. I felt like Joyner Lucas should’ve won a Grammy for ‘I’m Not Racist.'”

He reflected on his own loss in the major categories. “Every year we went, I would be up for Album of the Year and then the winner is Norah Jones. Who? And I’m not even trying to say anything bad about her music. At that point, I had never heard of her. And none of my friends did either. And then Steely Dan. OK, I know who Steely Dan is. Steely Dan back in the day. More than The Marshall Mathers LP impact? OK, fine. I watched 50 [Cent]. 50 did not win Best New Artist at the Grammys. Nobody since Snoop came out the gate like that. My first album didn’t do it. I never saw someone’s first album and the wave happen like he had. And then he doesn’t get it.”

He vows to never return to the Grammys again. “After that point in time, I was like don’t ever ask me to fucking come here again. Please do not ask me. My answer is no for a hundred million years. Never again will I fucking go to the Grammys.”

Elsewhere during Part 4, he addresses the end of D12. On Kamikaze‘s “Stepping Stone,” Em reveals that the group is officially over. “Done all we possibly can, I know we kept our hopes up / But the longer we spend livin’ this lie that we live,” he raps. “The less is left for closure, so let’s let this go / It’s not goodbye to our friendship, but D12 is over.”

He told Sway that he informed the other members of D12 that he was going to make the announcement before the song came out. “They got a heads up. I have not talked to Swift and Kuniva yet about the song, they just knew it was coming down the pipe,” said Em. “Proof was the glue that binded us all together. He did so much shit behind the scenes that I didn’t even realize and did things to keep us a group and motivate us. I think the conversation now going forward is to see if there’s anything we can do to help their solo careers.”

Eminem Unleashes Machine Gun Kelly Diss Track ‘Killshot’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:00 PM

Eminem fires back. Following Machine Gun Kelly’s “Rap Devil” diss, Eminem has responded with his own scathing diss track.

“When your fans become your haters,” says Em before bringing up Rihanna. “Rihanna just hit me on a text / Last night, I left hickeys on her neck.”

He continues, “How you gonna name yourself after a gun and you have a man bun?” before addressing MGK’s criticism that he’s too old for the rap game. “I’m 45, but I’m still outselling you,” says Em. “My biggest flops are your greatest hits.”

He goes on to call MGK a “broke bitch” and the “wack” version of him. “I’d rather be 80-year-old me than 20-year-old you,” he says. “You ain’t never made a list next to no Biggie, no JAY / Next to Taylor Swift and that Iggy ho / You about to really blow / Kelly, they’ll be putting your name next to Ja, next to Benzino / Die, motherfucker, like the last motherfucker saying Hailie in vain.”

In addition to calling him a “white toothpick,” Shady accuses him of wanting to be him. “You would suck a dick to fuckin’ be me for a second,” says Em. “Had enough of this tatted up mumble rapper / How the fuck can him and I battle? / He’ll have to fuck Kim in my flannel / I’ll give him my sandals / ‘Cause he knows long as I’m Shady, he’s gon’ have to live in my shadow.”

He also brings up MGK’s beef with G-Eazy (“We can all see you’re fuckin’ salty / ‘Cause Young Gerald’s balls deep inside of Halsey”) and even takes a controversial shot at Diddy. “Kellz, the day you put out a hit is the day Diddy admits that he put the hit out that got Pac killed,” he raps, later adding, “You know I’m just playing Diddy / You know I love you.”

He ends with a final warning: “Just leave my dick in your mouth and keep my daughter out it.”

Eminem dissed MGK on “Not Alike” off his surprise album Kamikaze, which inspired MGK’s “Rap Devil” diss.

Ariana Grande Was ‘Helpful and Effective’ in Mac Miller’s Sobriety

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:28 PM

Ariana Grande was “unbelievably involved and helpful” in getting her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller sober, according to one of the late rapper’s friends.

On Monday (Sept. 10), Shane Powers opened up about Miller’s battle with addiction on his podcast, “The Shane Show.” According to Powers, Grande had a positive influence on Miller when they were dating.

“They were very much in love and I have to say, she was incredible when he was first sobering up,” said Powers (via PEOPLE). “She was a fu**ing G to him. There could not have been anybody more supportive of him being sober than Ariana. I saw that, I was around it, I took phone calls from her. ‘How do I help? What do I do?’ This little girl was unbelievably involved and helpful to him being healthy.”

“Whether he’s an addict or not, the way that Mac partied was not healthy,” he added. “[And] there was no one in his life more ready to go to the wall for him when it came to him being sober. She was an unbelievably stabilizing force in his life and she was deeply helpful and effective in keeping Mac sober and helping him get sober. She was all about him being healthy. Period.”

Grande posted a tribute to Miller on Instagram and disabled her comments after trolls blamed her for Miller’s apparent overdose. The couple split in April after two years of dating.

Miller died at his Studio City, Calif., home on Friday (Sept. 7). He was 26. The cause of death is “deferred,” according to his death certificate. The L.A. County Coroner is still awaiting toxicology results, reports TMZ.

In the wake of his passing, the rapper’s music has seen a 970 percent increase in streams in the U.S., according to Billboard. His catalog earned 32.5 million streams, up from 3.04 million prior to his death.

Warrant Issued for Young Thug’s Arrest

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:42 PM

Young Thug has a warrant out for his arrest in Georgia.

A grand jury warrant was issued in DeKalb County after the Atlanta rapper was indicted on a series of drug possession charges, law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Just last week, a grand jury hit him with eight felony charges including possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone, and weed, as well as possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam, codeine (two counts), and a firearm.

The charges stem from Thug’s arrest last September in Georgia when cops booked him for possession of marijuana and tinted windows.

In August, Thugger was arrested on a felony gun charge while celebrating his 27th birthday and the release of his new project Slime Language in Hollywood.

Young Thug is currently on J. Cole’s “KOD Tour,” and has been teasing yet another project. On Sunday (Sept. 9), he tweeted, “Album in 2 days.”

Kanye West Says ‘Watch the Throne’ Sequel Is ‘Coming Soon’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:01 PM

A sequel to Watch the Throne is officially in the works.

Kanye West shocked fans when he tweeted “throne2 coming soon” on Saturday (Sept. 8), referring to the long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s collaborative album with JAY-Z, Watch the Throne.

The announcement is surprising as the two have had a contentious relationship in recent years. During his “Saint Pablo Tour” stop in Seattle in 2016, Kanye said that “there will never be a Watch the Throne 2,” revealing that he and JAY didn’t appear on the official version of Drake’s “Pop Style” due to issues between TIDAL and Apple Music.

“There will never be a Watch the Throne 2. You know why? Because that’s the reason why I wasn’t on the song,” he said. “I wasn’t on the song ’cause of Hov, ’cause of this TIDAL, Apple bullshit. And this shit be getting me tight every time I perform this motherfu**er.”

During the tour finale in Sacramento, Calif. later that year, Kanye called out JAY-Z and BeyoncΓ© for not taking his calls. “JAY-Z, I know you got killers,” he said. “Please don’t send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man.”

JAY made reference to Kanye on “Kill Jay Z” off 4:44: “You walkin’ around like you invincible / You dropped outta school, you lost your principles / I know people backstab you, I feel bad, too / But this ‘fuck everybody’ attitude ain’t natural / But you ain’t the same, this ain’t KumbaYe / But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye.”

During an interview with David Letterman’s “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” in April, JAY addressed their relationship. “That’s my brother,” he said. “We’re beyond friends. Really, like literally, my little brother is Kanye, and like your little brother, things happen sometimes.”

The original Watch the Throne, which spawned hits including “Ni**as in Paris,” “Otis,” and “No Church in the Wild,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and earned seven Grammy nominations.

Drake, G-Eazy Pay Tribute to Mac Miller at Shows

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:30 PM

The hip-hop community is mourning the loss of Mac Miller. Following his tragic death on Friday (Sept. 7), Drake and G-Eazy paid tribute to the late rapper during their shows.

The 6 God, who was in Boston for his “Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour,” dedicated Friday’s concert to the beloved MC. “Tonight, I want to dedicate this show to my late friend Mac Miller, who was always a kind man to me through this whole journey,” said Drake before launching into his Scorpion song “Emotionless.”

G-Eazy also honored his late friend during his “Endless Summer Tour” at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa, Fla. The Oakland rapper delivered an emotionally-charged performance of his Kehlani collaboration “Everything Will Be OK” while a photo of Miller was displayed on screen.

“Performed everything will be ok for you tonight and fuckin broke down on stage,” G-Eazy later wrote on Instagram. “Rest peacefully bro, we miss you.”

Earlier in the day, G-Eazy reflected on the tragic loss. “Completely devastated and heart broken I’m at a loss for words mac you were like a brother to me and were there for me in the hardest of times, especially this summer,” he said. “I can’t believe this is real. Please tell your friends and the people you care about you love them life is so fucking fragile. You will be missed and your music will live on forever through the millions of people you touched. Thank you for all you gave us, love you bro.”

Miller’s other friends and peers including J. Cole, Chance the Rapper, Snoop Dogg, Future, and Big Sean also took to social media to mourn the loss and pen heartfelt tributes.

Miller died of an apparent drug overdose on Friday at the age of 26. Following his death, his family released a statement. “Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26,” reads the statement. “He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time.”

Machine Gun Kelly Says Eminem Beef Is ‘Battle Between the Past and the Future’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:45 PM

Machine Gun Kelly still wants smoke with Eminem.

During a stop on Fall Out Boy’s “Mania Tour” in Em’s home state of Michigan on Thursday night (Sept. 6), MGK performed his “Rap Devil” diss track and issued a PSA about his feud with the Rap God.

“This is not a battle between Michigan and Ohio,” the Cleveland MC told the crowd at Grand Rapids’ Van Andel Arena (via Complex). “This is a battle between the past and the motherfuckin’ future. Knees weak of old age, the real Slim Shady can’t stand up.”

He then launched into “Rap Devil,” where he calls out his former idol for being the “big bad bully of the rap game” and trashes his music (“Still can’t cover up the fact your last four albums is as bad as your selfie”).

The diss was a response to “Not Alike” off Eminem’s surprise album Kamikaze. “If you wanna come at me with a sub, Machine Gun / And I’m talkin’ to you, but you already know who the f**k you are, Kelly,” raps Em. “I don’t use sublims and sure as f**k don’t sneak-diss / But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie.”

Now Eminem is reportedly readying a response to MGK’s diss. According to former D12 member Mr. Porter, Slim Shady has a reply in the works. “We doing something else right now, but trust me, we’ll get to it,” he told Culture Untold.

Joe Budden Says He’s ‘Been Better’ Than Eminem for a Decade

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:06 PM

Joe Budden is putting Eminem on blast.

After Slim Shady dissed him on his Kamikaze cut “Fall,” the Slaughterhouse MC clapped back at his former label boss during the latest episode of his “Joe Budden Podcast” on Wednesday (Sept. 5).

“News flash Em. I heard the album, and because I think you don’t really know all the members that were in the group [D12], I don’t really think you know our history,” said Budden. “Let me tell you what Joe Budden has thought this entire time. I’ve been better than you this entire fucking decade!”

“In my rapper brain, I’m a content ni**a. You gotta say something. You have not said anything for the better part of a whole fucking decade,” he added. “You have rhymed a bunch of words. Eminem is the best rhymer of words in the world, on the planet.”

He even insinuated that Em’s time is up. “How could I be mesmerized of someone that I think I’m better than? You’ve been in your cocoon so you’re unaware of a few things,” he said. “I don’t know what album y’all heard. I know a ni**a that knows it’s over. I heard a ni**a that’s fully aware that he has not said shit for about a decade now. I see a ni**a threatened by the other ni**as in the game.”

The disses didn’t stop there. “You fuckin’ superstar ni**as been sheltered and bored. MGK is right,” said Budden, referencing Machine Gun Kelly’s Eminem diss “Rap Devil.” “Y’all been slaves to your own fucking superstardom.”

Budden even threatened lyrical warfare on Em. “You inspire me the way my harsh criticism inspired you. You go spit something to make the superior MC, me, get out of his bed,” he said. “In the event you want to address me, you’ll do it outside of your album roll out. The second you do it, I’m on your ass. I am going to cut your fucking ass up.”

The two have been at odds since Joe called Em’s 2017 album Revival “trash.” Em responded on “Fall,” rapping, “Somebody tell Budden before I snap, he better fasten it / Or have his body baggage zipped / The closest thing he’s had to hits is smackin’ bitches.”

Lil Pump Headed to Jail for Probation Violation

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:12 PM

Lil Pump is headed behind bars.

The “Gucci Gang” rapper informed his fans that he is going to jail for “a couple of months” after being arrested for driving without a license. The arrest is a violation of his parole from an earlier offense where he fired a gun at his home in Los Angeles.

The 18-year-old was arrested in Miami on Aug. 29 for driving without a valid license after police discovered license plates on his Rolls-Royce belonged to a Mini Cooper.


A post shared by @ lilpump on Sep 3, 2018 at 4:04pm PDT

“Listen up y’all, I’m just gonna get straight to the point,” he told his 16 million Instagram followers. “Y’all seen what happened in Miami, I got arrested or whatever on some bullsh*t. I’m on probation in L.A. I just violated my P.O. so I’ve got to go in to do a couple of months.”

But he still plans to release new music in the interim. He said some “crazy ass sh*t” will drop while he’s away, telling fans, “Stay in school, don’t f**k up like me.”

Pump has been working on his second album Harverd Dropout, which is set for a Sept. 14 release. His “Harverd Dropout Tour” was set to kick off Sept. 28 in Denver, but it’s unclear how the tour dates will be affected.

Kim Kardashian Denies Hooking Up with Drake

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:33 PM

Kim Kardashian is putting an end to the rumors that she and Drake hooked up.

The speculation started when Drake rapped about “Kiki” on his Scorpion hit “In My Feelings.” Kiki is Kim’s family nickname and the color of one of her KKW Beauty lipsticks.

Drake’s “Sicko Mode” collaboration with Travis Scott also has people talking. “I crept down the block, made a right, cut the lights, paid the price,” he raps on the Astroworld cut.

According to TMZ, the two have mutual friends and are cordial when they run into each other, but there is no truth to the relationship rumors.

Additionally, sources say Kim has never slept with Drake before or after marriage.

The theory picked up steam during an episode of Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” with Nick Cannon. Host DJ Akademiks speculated that Kanye ended the Pusha-T vs. Drake feud because Drake had intel on Ye. “I think Drake smashed Kim K,” said Akademiks, while Cannon said it was not “that far off of a concept.”

But Kim herself put the rumors to rest on social media. “Never happened. End of story,” she responded to a post on The Shade Room.

Around the same time, Drake followed Kim on Instagram.

They jump in their drop-top and meet up with Breezy, who dances on the rooftop of a downtown L.A. building. The clip also features appearances from Ashanti, Scott Storch, and some white tigers.

“Now you’re callin’ me for attention, feenin’ for attention / Say you’re looking for that action,” sings Breezy over the Cool & Dre production.

“Attention” is a single off Fat Joe and Dre’s upcoming joint project Family Ties, due later this year.

Ariana Grande Pays Tribute to Aretha Franklin at Funeral

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:03 PM

R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Aretha Franklin’s life was celebrated during a star-studded ceremony in Detroit on Friday (Aug. 31).

Family members, friends, and even former presidents turned out to honor the Queen of Soul during the live-streamed, all-day funeral at Detroit’s Greater Grace Temple that featured musical tributes from Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Hudson, Chaka Khan, Fantasia, Faith Hill, and Ariana Grande.

Dressed in a black mini-skirt, the Sweetener star belted out Franklin’s 1967 classic “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” as former President Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and even Grande’s ex Big Sean looked on.

Following the performance, Bishop Charles H. Ellis III admitted that he wasn’t previously familiar with Ariana. “I’ve got to apologize because I have to brush up. My 28-year-old daughter tells me, ‘Dad! You are old at 60,'” he said as Ariana stood alongside him. “When I saw Ariana Grande on the program, I thought that was a new something at Taco Bell.”

Former President Bill Clinton also praised the Queen of Soul. “We started out, not as a president, a first lady, a senator, a secretary of state. We started out as, like, Aretha groupies or something,” he told the crowd.

Aretha Franklin died on Aug. 16 at her home in Detroit. She was 76.

New Music: Russ – ‘Serious’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:54 PM

After teaming up with Scott Storch on “The Flute Song,” Russ gets “Serious” on his latest single.

The R&B jam, which premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1, finds Russ confronting a complicated relationship. “Baby, take me serious,” he pleads.

“Serious” is the second release from Russ’ sophomore album, Zoo, the follow-up to his platinum debut There’s Really a Wolf. “This album, as far as like a theme and a mood, it’s really more personal than I’ve ever gone. I really dug deep. It’s really reflective of everything right now,” he told Beats 1. “It’s really telling of what it’s like to be famous. It’s not all glamour and a lot of it is really stressful and really high paranoia at times.”


The music is reflective of his current life and feeling like an outsider. “It’s like experiencing the best aspect of your life, while also experiencing some of the most negative aspects that have happened,” he explained. “It’s a really weird balance of living your dreams and all of these amazing things are happening, but then some of the most negative things that have ever happened to your life.”

Zoo arrives Sept. 7. Listen to “Serious” below.

Tyga Sues Cash Money & Young Money for $10 Million

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:04 PM

Tyga is suing Cash Money and Young Money, claiming they owe him millions.

The “Taste” rapper says he signed a deal in 2009 in which he would produce two albums for Young Money—2012’s Careless World: Rise of the Last King and 2013’s Hotel California.

According to the lawsuit, Cash Money and Young Money agreed to pay Tyga in 2016 all the royalties that he says were owed to him for years, but he didn’t receive anything. He has attempted to get paid, but has been unsuccessful. He is now seeking no less than $10 million.

Tyga claims Young Money shorted him “significant sums,” but he says this is strictly business and nothing personal with Wayne. “No Lil Wayne slander will be tolerated ever,” he tweeted. “That man changed my life.”

In October 2014, Tyga lashed out at Young Money, saying that his album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, was being “held hostage.” He also threatened to leak the project if they didn’t put it out. In June 2015, he released it for streaming exclusively on Spotify and then later on Apple Music.

Watch T.I. Perform His Classics for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:45 PM

T.I. is the latest artist to take over NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series.

Wearing a white Burberry hoodie, the King of the South held court with an orchestra of young musicians from the non-profit Atlanta Music Project to put a new spin on three of his biggest hits including “Rubber Band Man,” “What You Know,” and “Live Your Life.”

He also shared stories behind the music, like the time he found out that his home had been raided by police after shooting the video for “Rubber Band Man” with Puff Daddy. “That was a very bittersweet moment for me,” he said. “But I think that’s all in the essence of trap music. This music was about the elements that people had to endure in their lives every day and find a brighter side and make a way out of no way.”

He also shared some words of wisdom with his young collaborators. “You are able to do anything in the world that you wanna do in life. Don’t let anybody tell you what you can’t accomplish. Only thing between you and your dreams is your effort,” he said before going into “Live Your Life.”

This year marks the 15th anniversary of Tip’s sophomore album Trap Muzik. In addition to investing in the redevelopment of his Bankhead community in Atlanta, he plans to return to his roots on his next studio album, The Dime Trap.

Fan Rushes Stage at BeyoncΓ© & JAY-Z’s ‘On the Run II’ Tour

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:57 PM

A fan made a run for BeyoncΓ© and JAY-Z during their “On the Run II” tour.

Panic ensued as the Carters were exiting the stage following their performance at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday (Aug. 25). During the last moments of “APESHI*T,” an overzealous fan in a white jersey jumped on stage and tried to approach the couple as they headed backstage.

But backup dancers were quick to respond, chasing the man as he ran towards Bey and JAY before security joined in moments later. Concertgoers, who posted footage of the incident on social media, initially thought a fight was breaking out on stage.

Police eventually detained the 26-year-old man, named Anthony Charles Thomas Maxwell, and wrote up a citation for disorderly conduct. He was not taken into custody.

Maxwell apparently made some sort of contact with JAY-Z during the melee, but not with BeyoncΓ©. The couple was unharmed and won’t be pressing charges, according to a statement from the tour.

“At the end of last night’s show, we had an intoxicated male enter the stage,” reads the statement. “At this point, we had a controlled evacuation of all crew on the stage in order to safely defuse the situation. We are happy to confirm that nobody was hurt during the incident, and Mr. & Mrs. Carter are choosing not to press charges against the individual.

We would like to thank the hard work of our tour security who effectively restrained the individual and all of our dancers and team who handled the situation so professionally. Mr. & Mrs. Carter look forward to seeing you all tomorrow in Atlanta.”

Bey’s rep also assured fans that the couple was fine. “Thank you to all the fans for your concern,” the singer’s publicist wrote on Instagram. “They are fine and looking forward to the show tomorrow.”

Bey and Jay are in the middle of their “On the Run II” tour, which returns for a second night in Atlanta on Sunday and continues through Oct. 4 in Seattle.

#FunkFlexFacebookMessenger And How To Use It: Submit / Rate

#InFlexWeTrustFreestyle: #IFWT0006 – Anthony John [Full Video]

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:44 PM

Once a Month an opportunity will be given to an talented artist that hits the Top 10 inside the #FunkFlexFacebookMessenger… What are those opportunities you ask? First and foremost, the chance to spit next to Flex, as an rapper, for that to be in your art form portfolio… invaluable! But it doesn’t stop there as Flex and team find even more value to add for the artists… like this winner, Anthony John from Long Island…

Tat Wza IG | Twitter | Snapchat(Snapcode; Screenshot and ADD)

Anthony John got an opportunity to open for A Boogie & Jay Critch at #FunkFlexBirthdayBash and here’s what that looked like;

which as an independent artist that was an opportunity of a lifetime, all exposure is good exposure! Anthony John in one shot, by spending $30, grew his resume, the stage performance, and the chance to spit next to Funk Flex, which to the artists, might be the bigger prize! Here’s IFWT0006;

Now here’s the story told to one of our IFWT reporters, @Taya_freaknbaya

“Slaughterhouse , the L.O.X., Wu-Tang , some of the greatest rap groups of the 90s and early 2000s. If you had to pick your own members of your rap group who would they be? Long Island’s native Anthony John top picks were Big Sean, J.Cole, Pusha T, and T.I. Would you listen to their album ?
21-year-old Anthony understands what we mean when we say bars still matter! “It shows that you have some sort of creativity, and you actually care about the art form”. Anthony set the tone and made his presence known, rapping for the In Flex We Trust freestyle series. My first impression hearing him perform was – this guy has a flow like Eminem!
While studying Accounting at Malloy College, this senior devotes his time and energy into creating music with lyrical entendres. His biggest influences in Rap include Lil Wayne and Eminem. He praised both MCs for their technical ability and word play. “My favorite Lil Wayne project would be No Ceilings; he had all the metaphors, punch lines, bars, and just takes people’s beats and rip them apart.”
Although Anthony focuses on having bars, the majority of his time is spent appreciating R&B and Pop music. John’s dream features in R&B are the G.O.A.T.S. Usher and Chris Brown. “Usher is my third favorite artists; his vulnerability in his songs captivates me”. The goal for this MC is to sign at a label that allows him to control his originality and sound fully. He also would like to continue to push the envelope in music showing that technique is essential to this rap game. “Whatever you do, do it every day. Make sure you practice it.”
”Attention Span” is Anthony’s newest single featuring Crooked I, which is scheduled to drop on September 7th. As a teaser, Anthony will be releasing new freestyles to different Slaughterhouse beats every Friday during the month of August. You can find singles like “God Adjacent” and “Snap Shot” on Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud. Make sure you check out his In Flex We Trust freestyle and let us know what you think!”

Wiz Khalifa’s House Broken Into

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:33 PM

Wiz Khalifa is the latest house robbery victim.

The rapper’s home was broken into early Saturday morning (Aug. 25), but he avoided any loss because a house sitter was present when the incident occurred and scared off the robbers.

Law enforcement tells TMZ that two men wearing hoodies broke glass and entered Wiz’s house in the San Fernando Valley around 4:45 a.m. A member of Wiz’s crew was at the home and heard the noise. The burglars took off when they heard him come down.

No property was taken and the only damage was broken glass. Police are still investigating.

The robbery comes on the heels of other high-profile celebrity break-ins including John Mayer and Christina Milian. The “Dip It Low” singer and her boyfriend M. Pokora had their San Fernando Valley home broken into Friday. The thieves made off with jewelry and watches valued at around $100,000.

New Music: French Montana feat. Adam Levine – ‘Famous (Remix)’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:16 PM

French Montana taps Adam Levine for the remix to his Jungle Rules single “Famous.”

The video finds the Coke Boy reuniting with the Triplet Ghetto Kids from his “Unforgettable” video. They dance in front of the Suubi “Hope” Health Center, the hospital French rebuilt in partnership with the non-profit Mama Hope and Global Citizen.

“I’m excited to be on this song with French and have the proceeds go to something so special and that’s really making a difference,” said Levine in a statement.

All French’s digital royalties from the “Famous” remix will support the completion of Mama Hope’s Suubi “Hope” Health Center in Uganda, which will ultimately provide health access for over 450,000 people in 58 villages.

Following the release of the gold-certified Jungle Rules, which spawned the 5x-platinum hit “Unforgettable,” French has re-signed with Epic Records. He can also be heard on the title track to Liam Payne’s new EP First Time.
