50 Cent and Birdman Joke About Buying $9 Million Bugatti

Posted by Unknown on 3:09 PM

50 Cent may be looking up to upgrade his custom Lamborghini.

Bugatti recently unveiled its latest limited-edition model. The Bugatti Centodieci will cost $9 million and only 10 will be made.

But the supercar—which goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.4 seconds—may be a little too expensive, even for 50’s taste. The G-Unit mogul reposted a CNN article with the headline and shared his own take on the ultra-expensive whip. “9 mill wait, we must get the building the car in too πŸ€” they going to far,” he wrote.

50 already owns a Lamborghini Aventador, which costs around $400,000. 50 revealed that Snoop Dogg “stole” the custom Versace-wrapped vehicle after their recent show in Brooklyn.

While Fif may not be in the market for a $9 million car, Birdman is looking to add one to his collection. The Cash Money millionaire, who grossed $20 million in 2018 according to Forbes, told 50 that he wants in.

“Fuk that 5 we need that shit,” he commented on 50’s IG post.

Birdman is already a member of the exclusive Bugatti owners club. He previously purchased a $2 million Bugatti Veyron. “It’s something that everybody ain’t gonna get, so that’s my love for it,” he told DUB magazine in 2011.

Stream Snoh Aalegra’s Album ‘- Ugh, those feels again’

Posted by Unknown on 2:18 PM

Nearly two years since releasing her breakout debut FEELS, Snoh Aalegra returns with the sequel – Ugh, those feels again.

The album, which was executive produced by No I.D., features 14 R&B-driven tracks which pull inspiration from her idols, including Prince, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson, as well as her experiences as a Swedish woman of Iranian descent who is coming into her own.

Unlike FEELS, which she describes as “more emo,” the sequel has a more upbeat tone. “I would say the first half is a little more happy and then the B-side, the second half of the album, goes back to the old FEELS a little,” she told Ebro on Beats 1.

It’s been a long journey for the 31-year-old singer-songwriter, who was only 18 when she released her first album. “It’s shaped me a lot and given me thicker skin and I really appreciate everything good that’s coming for me,” she said. “And I’m happy that I didn’t make it when I was 18 ’cause I probably wasn’t ready for it then. I would maybe lose my head.”

– Ugh has already earned praise from fans and critics alike. “Ugh is a ‘real album,’ with a unified yet ever-changing sound and vibe,” wrote Variety.

50 Cent Reveals How Snoop Dogg ‘Stole’ His Lamborghini

Posted by Unknown on 2:28 PM

50 Cent is putting Snoop Dogg on blast.

The “Power” executive producer recounted how Snoop Dogg “stole” his car during his appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” Both rappers were performing at the Masters of Ceremony concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in June when Snoop surprised him by showing up on stage to perform their “P.I.M.P. (Remix).” But when 50 got off stage, his custom Versace Lamborghini Aventador was missing.

“I came out and the car was gone,” said Fif. “He walked by the car, saw the car and was like, I don’t know if it was jealous feelings or something, but he actually went to the car and got in the car ’cause the keys are in there.”

50 was searching for the car before he found out that the valet had given it to Snoop. “And the guy that’s supposed to be like the valet parker, I was like, ‘Where did the car go? And he was like, ‘Snoop took the car.’ I said, ‘What?’ I’m like how you just let him take my car. ‘Cause Snoop be [smoking weed] a lot. I think he thought that was his car for a minute.”

50 believes Snoop may have taken the car in exchange for the performance. “Later I made a tape saying that I owed him for the performance because he feel like you got me performing for free and you got cars like this out here. He thought I tricked him into a performance, but he offered to perform.”

50 previously described the incident on Instagram, revealing that Snoop may have taken the car as payment for showing up and performing with him. Snoop even documented himself backstage stealing the car, which he said was “made for a Crip.”

“50 Cent, ni**a owe me some money, so I’m just gonna take the ni**a car right now,” said Snoop. “50, I’ma gonna take your car cuz till you give me my money.”

Tomi Lahren Blasts JAY-Z-NFL Partnership

Posted by Unknown on 2:33 PM

JAY-Z and the NFL are teaming up on a music and social justice campaign, but not everyone is happy about it.

Taking to Twitter, Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren slammed the partnership between the league and JAY-Z’s Roc Nation. “Jay-Z will be consulting with the NFL for the Super Bowl halftime show and other performances because apparently the league doesn’t hate America and law enforcement officers at a level satisfactory enough for the former drug dealer,” tweeted the conservative political commentator.

JAY-Z has criticized the NFL over its treatment of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He, along with Rihanna, turned down the opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show. “I said no to the Super Bowl: You need me, I don’t need you / Every night we in the endzone, tell the NFL we in stadiums to,” he rapped on The Carters’ “APESHIT.”

As part of the NFL deal, JAY-Z and Roc Nation will serve as the league’s “live music entertainment strategists,” consulting on entertainment programs including the halftime show. Additionally, the partnership will support the league’s activism campaign, Inspire Change, which supports criminal justice reform, economic growth opportunities, and educational progress.

“With its global reach, the National Football League has the platform and opportunity to inspire change across the country,” said JAY-Z. “Roc Nation has shown that entertainment and enacting change are not mutually exclusive ideas — instead, we unify them. This partnership is an opportunity to strengthen the fabric of communities across America.”

Lahren frequently speaks out against the hip-hop community. She came under fire over her comments about 21 Savage and his immigration case and has sparred with Cardi B on social media. Most recently, she and Joyner Lucas faced off over his “Devil’s Work” video.

Despite Lahren’s comments, rappers including T.I. have applauded JAY-Z for the NFL partnership.

Kodak Black Apologizes to Yung Miami for Threatening to Hit Her

Posted by Unknown on 2:48 PM

Kodak Black is showing remorse after he threatened violence against Yung Miami.

The “ZEZE” rapper, who is in jail on weapons charges, rapped about punching the pregnant City Girls rapper in the stomach on a recent freestyle that he recorded in jail.

“I bought Yung Miami a ring, she wanted 808’s baby,” he rapped in the clip, which he shared on Instagram. “When I see her I’ma hit that bitch in her stomach / The way I keep this shit too real / They say I’m fuckin’ up my money.”

Now Kodak is backing off his “petty” remarks. Taking to Twitter on Saturday (Aug. 10), he issued an apology of sorts. “#YungMiami Gimmicks Are For Suckas, As I Sit Back I Realize How Petty That Move Was And As A Man It’s Certain Things We Refrain From,” he tweeted.

He also apologized to the father of Miami’s unborn child, Southside of production duo 808 Mafia. “@sizzle808MAFIA Ain’t No Smoke Wit You Bra Fuck That Lame Shit I Pray Y’all Have A Healthy Baby And Live A Prosperous Life,” he said, adding, “Besides Bitch We Got More Hits To Make.”

Yung Miami, who announced her pregnancy in June, starred in Kodak’s video for “Christmas in Miami,” during which he proposed to her with a Ring Pop.

Following Kodak’s violent freestyle, her boyfriend Southside fired back on Instagram Stories. “Somebody tell Kodak suck a dick,” wrote the Atlanta beatmaker. “How ’bout that? And get up out of jail first, pussy.”

Yung Miami also weighed in. After a commenter dissed her and Southside on Instagram (“Kodak dusted u lil mama now this 808 ni**a big mad”), she responded, “Poor ass ni**a Kodak ain’t dust shit!”

Kodak remains behind bars after being arrested on weapons charges for allegedly making false statements on gun applications. He was denied bond and will remain in a Florida jail cell at least until September when his trial gets underway.

Last week, Yung Miami was targeted during a drive-by shooting in Miami. The pregnant rapper was riding in her Mercedes G-Wagon when shots were fired at the vehicle, but she was not hit.

Drake Gets Beatles Tattoo to Celebrate Chart Record

Posted by Unknown on 2:48 PM

Drake has more slaps than The Beatles, and he’s making it known.

The 6 God got a new tattoo to celebrate his record-breaking chart feat. The ink on his left forearm, which was revealed by Word On Road, shows the Toronto rapper standing in front of The Beatles in an image inspired by the band’s Abbey Road album cover. Drizzy leads the pack, while the four band members walk behind him in a single-file line down the crosswalk on Abbey Road in London.

Drizzy’s play on the iconic 1969 cover art is a nod to him passing The Beatles for the second-most top 10s in the history of the Billboard Hot 100. He achieved this with “Money in the Grave” featuring Rick Ross in June. He now has 35 top 10 hits, behind only Madonna, who leads with 38.

Drake rapped about the milestone (“I got more slaps than The Beatles”) on Meek Mill’s “Going Bad,” which was a reference to him surpassing The Beatles’ record for most top 10 hits on the Hot 100 in a single year.

Earlier this month, he dropped his Care Package project featuring fan favorites that were previously unavailable on streaming services. It is expected to debut at No. 1 on next week’s Billboard 200.

He has also been hard at work on a new album. During the London stop on his “Assassination Vacation Tour” in April, Drizzy revealed that he’s already started recording and plans to return with a new album in 2020.

Mystikal Injures Himself After Falling Offstage

Posted by Unknown on 3:15 PM

Danger! Mystikal took a scary tumble while on stage during a recent show.

The New Orleans rapper was performing on Thursday night in Tampa when the incident took place. Within 30 seconds of running onstage, he tumbled to the floor below. In the video footage, obtained by TMZ, security helps him back up, but he was clearly in pain.

Despite the injury, he continued performing hits like “It Ain’t My Fault” for the next 45 minutes while seated at the edge of the stage. But the pain was so bad that he eventually had to cut his set by more than half and was helped offstage because he couldn’t walk.

According to a concertgoer, something was obviously wrong. Mystikal was reportedly heard saying, “Man, I need an ambulance.”

Members of his crew guided him offstage without putting weight on the injured leg. It’s unclear if he went to the hospital.

As for what caused the fall, he apparently slipped. An eyewitness says a drink fell before Mystikal’s performance and it splashed all over the stage.

Kanye West Housing Project Could Be Torn Down

Posted by Unknown on 3:26 PM

Kanye West’s new housing project is in jeopardy of being torn down.

The futuristic, egalitarian community that is being built on the 300 acres of land he owns in Calabasas has encountered issues with the L.A. County Dept. of Public Works. According to TMZ, inspectors visited the four dome-like prototype structures after several neighbors complained and determined the project violates the building code.

On July 18, one of the neighbors contacted the Dept. after reportedly hearing construction on the property late at night. An inspector came out and spoke with the site manager, who said the domes were part of a “production” and were only temporary. Building permits are not required for temporary structures.

The Dept. received a second complaint of construction noise about a week ago. The inspector came out again, and noticed that the domes were sitting atop a concrete foundation and determined they did not appear temporary. As a result, plans and building permits are required.

Kanye and his team have 45 days to secure property permits. If they don’t submit plans and get building permits by Sept. 15, the structures must be torn down.

A source close to Kanye tells TMZ that the structures were always intended to be temporary. The concrete base was necessary to secure the structure for safety reasons, but will eventually be removed along with the prototypes. They have been in touch with the County and intend to comply with the requirements.

Kanye has been building the dome-like structures with the hopes of revolutionizing the design for new age homes and breaking down class barriers.

Rihanna, Cardi B Call Out Trump After Mass Shootings

Posted by Unknown on 1:56 PM

Rihanna and Cardi B are taking on Trump.

The music superstars took to social media on Sunday (Aug. 4) to call out the President after two mass shootings left at least 29 dead and 53 injured over the course of just 13 hours.

On Saturday, a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, leaving 20 dead and 26 injured. Less than a day later, nine people were killed and at least 27 were injured at a popular bar in downtown Dayton, Ohio.

The El Paso shooting is being investigated as a possible hate crime after the discovery of a racist, anti-immigrant manifesto posted online by the alleged killer, a 21-year-old white man from Allen, Texas.

Following the deadly attacks, several celebrities including Rihanna have spoken out. In a message to her 166 million followers across Twitter and Instagram, the singer condemned Trump for not doing more to combat terrorism in the United States.

“Um… Donald, you spelt ‘terrorism’ wrong! Your country had 2 terrorist attacks back to back hours apart leaving almost 30 innocent people dead,” she began. “This, just days after yet another terrorist attack in California, where a terrorist was able to LEGALLY purchase an assault rifle (AK-47) in Vegas, then drive hours to a food festival in Cali leaving 6 more people dead including a young infant baby boy!”

She continued, “Imagine a world where it’s easier to get an AK-47 than a VISA! Imagine a world where they build a wall to keep terrorists IN AMERICA!!!”

She also shared her condolences for the victims of the senseless violence. “My prayers and deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims from Texas, California, and Ohio! I’m so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY!” she said.

Cardi B also weighed in on Twitter, accusing the President of inciting “racist” rhetoric, which has led to increased violence in the country. “We have enough information already! Both of the shooters are white supremacist terrorist with intentions to kill minority’s,” she wrote in response to Trump’s tweet. “Law enforcement took rapid action but what are YOU going to do to control some of your RACIST SUPPORTERS?”

When someone told her that she should stay in her lane, Cardi clapped back. “This is not beyond my scoop this is my country and I’m tired!” she wrote. “I get it you are a conservative you and you can support who you want but you can’t ignore the slowly but surely racial war that going on in this country that are the reasons of these tragedy.”

Cardi has been active with getting young voters engaged in politics ahead of the 2020 presidential election. She recently sat down with Senator Bernie Sanders to discuss canceling student debt, climate change, and raising minimum wage.

Following this weekend’s mass shootings, John Legend also took Trump to task for inciting hatred. “When we condemn the racist venom coming from the President’s mouth and point out the bigotry of his policies, it’s not an academic question, it’s not a political game, it’s about life and death,” tweeted the Grammy-winning singer. “The President regularly inspires killers. He is a part of the problem.”

According to the non-profit Gun Violence Archive, there have been over 250 mass shootings this year in the United States. Earlier this week, two people were shot and killed at a Walmart in Southaven, Mississippi, and three people were killed by gunfire at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California.
