YG Reveals Secret Project with Nipsey Hussle

Posted by Unknown on 3:09 PM

YG is making sure the Marathon continues.

While promoting his new album 4REAL 4REAL, which he dedicated to Nipsey Hussle, YG reflected on the loss of his close friend. “I feel like the homie was Jesus Christ on Earth. I’m like, ‘Damn, Jesus Christ was my friend,'” said YG during an interview with REAL 92.3’s “The Cruz Show.”

After Nipsey was killed outside his Marathon Clothing store in March, YG says he has seen an outpouring from people, who claim they were down with Nipsey’s movement, something that doesn’t sit well with the Compton rapper.

“I’m glad I got to tell the homie how I felt about him when he was here ’cause it’s a lot of motherfu**ers that coming out the woodworks like, ‘Oh, Nipsey this. Nipsey this,'” he said. “It’s like you bitchass ni**as wasn’t doing none of this when the homie was here. Now he gone, you wanna come out and do all this weird shit. I hate that shit.”

He also revealed that he and Nip were collaborating on an unspecified project prior to his death. “Before the homie went to heaven, we was working on a project, from like January to March,” said YG.

He didn’t reveal exactly what they were working on, but did say that it’s not music-related. “No, it’s something different,” he added. “What we got, what we started to work on, I’m glad that that happened because it’s something that we both wanted to start doing that’s outside of music. And it came from a conversation like, ‘Bro, we gotta do this.'”

He promises that their secret project will eventually come to fruition, adding, “It’s mandatory.”

YG previously spoke about projects that he and Nipsey were working on, including a joint album called 2 of Amerikkkaz Most Wanted. “We had so much shit in the works. TV shows that was being written, A album ‘2 OF AMERIKKKAZ MOST WANTED’ that we tried to work on twice but it never got done,” he wrote on Instagram following Nipsey’s death.

Meanwhile, YG is still grieving over the loss of his brother. “It’s crazy how life happened. The homie not supposed to be gone.”

To honor his friend, he has donated a portion of proceeds from his album to Nipsey’s children, 10-year-old Emani and 2-year-old Kross. “I put that ‘In Loving Memory of Nip’ on the album cover because I’m giving his kids a percentage of every song on the album. By time they get 18, from me, they gon’ have a bag,” he recently told Big Boy.

YG’s fourth album 4REAL 4REAL is out now featuring Meek Mill, Tyga, Ty Dolla $ign, G-Eazy, Kamaiyah, Boogie, and more.

Joyner Lucas and Logic Team Up on ‘ISIS’

Posted by Unknown on 1:42 PM

Joyner Lucas and Logic squash their beef and join forces on “ISIS.”

In the militaristic video, the rappers hit the front lines as soldiers leading an army of men. Lucas shouts out the “kids like me who got ADHD” before putting a gun to the head of an ISIS member, who turns out to be Logic.

“Push me, I’m Louis Vuitton / You at Target with your mom / On the internet, still hating on my last post / I just had a steak back at Mastro’s, my God!” raps Bobby Tarantino. “One time for the Grammy that I never got / Two times for the Garden that I sold out / Three times for the street crimes that I committed.”

With weapons drawn, the two continue to unleash brash rhymes. “Me and Joyner need a couple hearses / Double homicide, kill the beat and the verses,” adds Logic.

Prior to collaborating, the two had a rocky relationship. During a 2017 interview with “Everyday Struggle,” Lucas called out Logic for his race-related rhymes. “I think he can rap. But I feel like he tries to prove that he’s black too much for me,” he said. Logic alluded to the beef on Thursday, posting the “ISIS” video and writing, “What’s beef?”

“ISIS” follows Joyner’s viral video for “Devil’s Work,” where he asks God to bring back Tupac Shakur, Nipsey Hussle, and Michael Jackson in exchange for Suge Knight, R. Kelly, and Tomi Lahren, who lashed out at Lucas for her depiction.

Lucas is now gearing up to release his ADHD project and can be heard on Chris Brown’s upcoming album Indigo.

Nipsey Hussle’s Baby Mama Reportedly Wants to Manage His Estate

Posted by Unknown on 3:18 PM

Nipsey Hussle’s family is preparing for a showdown over his estate.

Tanisha Foster, the mother of Nipsey’s daughter Emani, will object to the appointment of the rapper’s brother, Sam Asghedom, as administrator of his estate, sources tell TMZ. Foster will reportedly not accept Sam as the manager of Nipsey’s fortune and may even request to be appointed administrator herself.

Since Nipsey died without a will, Sam has filed legal documents to be appointed the administrator of his brother’s estate, which is estimated at $2 million. A judge is set to rule on Sam’s request June 10.

Under California law, Nipsey’s two children, including 10-year-old Emani, and 2-year-old Kross (Nipsey’s son with Lauren London), would split the estate and each get around $1 million.

Meanwhile, Foster continues to fight for custody of Emani. If she’s successful, she would have control over the finances and would likely be entitled to use some of it to provide for her daughter. On Tuesday (May 21), a judge temporarily blocked Foster from having physical custody of Emani, who is living with Nipsey’s sister, Samantha Smith.

Foster has asked the probate judge to continue the custody hearing. According to TMZ, she and Nipsey’s family are not on good terms, and Foster will most likely object to Sam becoming the administrator.

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.”

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.
