Ja Rule Says He Beat 50 Cent Up With Bat & Crutch In "Unruly" Book

Ja Rule says he's beaten 50 Cent up with a bat and a crutch on different occasions.

Ja Rule recalls his feud with 50 Cent in his book, Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Being a Man, according to NY Daily News.

In 2000, Ja Rule says he was involved in a fight with 50. 

“50 tried to swing on me, but I dipped, then I hit him with the baby Louisville Slugger,” Ja Rule writes. “Bam! I dropped the bat. I pulled the shirt over his head. I started catching him left, right, uppercut.”

Ja Rule says 50 Cent's entourage ran from the situation. 

Rule also says he also beat 50 Cent up with a crutch he got from someone in his camp with a broken foot at the time.

“I hit him with the crutch,” he says. “We proceeded to whip his ass. I was putting in my work. 50 was crunched in the corner. I slammed the big Tannoy speaker down on him.”

Rule also says 50 Cent snitched on him. 

“When they [the Feds] asked him who he thought had shot him, it would make sense that 50 would have said, ‘Ja Rule, Irv Gotti and Murder Inc.,’ ” Ja Rule writes about the 2000 incident in which 50 Cent was shot nine times.

50 has denied cooperating with law enforcement officials. Nevertheless, Rule says 50 "secretly led them through his recordings for the answers they were looking for." 

“50 was a crazed man on a mission to destroy me," he says. 

Ja Rule spoke about his feud with 50 Cent in September 2013

“It was a lot going on in that time frame,” Ja said at the time. “You got the federal indictment. Here’s what it is, it was orchestrated very well. He was a part of the juggernauts at that moment. Eminem, Dre, they were very, very big in what they were doing as well. So, as we were big over on our side they were also big on their side. And as everything started to crumble for us as far as we didn’t have a label home anymore, ya understand? There was a lot of things that were falling apart for us. It was easy for him to get people to turn on. And there was things that were behind the scenes that y’all don’t see that also made us seem more irrelevant. Like we couldn’t go to awards shows.”

Chris Brown Facing Jail Time After Plea Deal Falls Apart

Chris Brown was close to striking a deal that would have kept him out of jail.

Chris Brown and the attorneys involved in the singer’s case regarding his alleged October assault outside of a Washington, D.C. hotel were close to agreeing on a plea deal in the case, but the agreement was not reached, according to the AP.

Brown may face jail time now that his defense team and prosecutors did not agree on what Brown would say happened during the 2013 incident. 

The singer was reportedly approached at approximately 4:30 am October 27 by two women who wanted to take a picture with him in front of the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., according to law enforcement. When two men attempted to get into the photo, Brown allegedly used a gay slur before allegedly throwing a punch at the alleged victim.

At the time of the alleged incident, Brown was on probation for his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna and the Washington, D.C. incident could be viewed a violation of his probation. If so, he could be sentenced to prison for up to four years.

The prosecutor in the case said today (June 25) that their team offered Brown and his team a deal in which he would plead guilty to simple assault and time served, according to the AP story. The deal fell apart because the defense and prosecution were unable to agree on what happened during the Washington incident. 

"They wanted him to read from a script that wasn't true,” Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos said after the hearing.

The trial regarding this incident was scheduled for September 8.

Rick Ross Speaks On Not Performing At Detroit Concert
After two days of news stories about why Rick Ross decided to cancel his headlining performance at Hot 107.5′s Summer Jamz 17 in Detroit, the man himself speaks out about the incident. In an

interview with Felisha Monet of 99 Jamz, Ross says he never made it to the venue and never spoke to anyone directly about being blocked from the event.

[ALSO READ: Rick Ross Blocked From Performing In Detroit; Reportedly “In Fear Of His Life”]

“The team head over to the gig, so my team is always in front of me. Just to make it clear, I never even made it to the venue,” said Ross. “Me and whoever this gentleman is – we never crossed paths. He never spoke with Rozay, and I expect him to clarify that.”

The “gentleman” Ross is likely referring to is rapper Trick Trick. There were reports that it was Trick who orchestrated the blockade that prevented Ross from entering Chene Park Amphitheater where Summer Jamz was being held. Allegedly, Trick had placed the Maybach Music Group leader on a “No Fly Zone” list which meant the two would have needed to speak before Ross could perform.

“The caravan is on the way to the venue. They get there, and someone has locked the gates to the venue,” explained Ross. “This I didn’t see myself - there was supposed to be gentlemen here who were talking with the police, and it was very peaceful for my team that made it there. They didn’t even know it was a problem.”

Ross says he then went to a local casino, and it was there that he heard it was supposedly a “gang” outside Chene Park waiting for him.

“That’s totally false,” said Ross. “I let that breath for a whole day just expecting somebody to step up and say that’s not true. No one spoke to MMG.”

Ross’ statement is different from what the promoters of Summer Jamz have said about his reason for not performing. Hot 107.5′s program director Jay Hicks said Ross was met by 100 people outside and was “in fear of his life.”

Shahida Mausi of The Right Productions, Inc, which manages and operates Chene Park, said there were 100-150 people outside the site led by “a local rapper” that “prevented and threatened to harm Ross if he entered the grounds to perform at Chene Park Amphitheater.”

“FYI, if this is the scenario, I didn’t see it. Rozay ain’t make it to the venue,” adds Ross. “For any upcoming artists don’t never feel the need to shoot your way into any venue to perform. You not getting paid for that.”

Chris Brown Goes Ape Over Rihanna Played In The Club

Chris Brown is still clearly not over Rihanna, and made it painfully obvious in a L.A. nightclub, when he demanded that the DJ played her songs.

Star Magazine says:

“An employee at L.A. hookah lounge The Spot tells Star that the singer threw a fit during a recent visit when the DJ queued up songs by his ex. “Chris was in good spirits until Rihanna’s song “Diamonds” started playing,” the eyewitness explains. “Suddenly, he was fuming, pacing around like he was about to start a fight!”

Never one to take the high road, Chris brattily demanded that the DJ strike RiRi from the playlist. “Things got pretty heated,” the employee recalls, adding that the DJ retaliated by playing “Started From the Bottom” by Rihanna’s on-off boyfriend Drake!
“Chris was absolutely livid,” the spy adds. “Thankfully, the DJ laughed and changed the song — but it did make a few good minutes of entertainment at Chris’ expense!”

Talk about case of the ex…

Authorities Say Shooting Involving Schoolboy Q Seemed To Be Targeted
Top Dawg Entertainment emcee Schoolboy Q was involved in a shooting that took place outside the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado on Thursday night.

While Schoolboy was not harmed after shots were reportedly fired into a SUV, three other people in the vehicle were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Authorities believe the incident was not a random act.

[ALSO READ: Three People Shot Following Nas, Flying Lotus, Schoolboy Q Concert]

“This is not just a coincidence. We think there is probably more to it than that,” stated Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Jacki Kelley. “It does seem to be more targeted than random.”

The shooting took place in the parking lot outside Red Rocks, but the victims managed to drive into Denver where they were stopped by police. Schoolboy and another uninjured person were briefly detained by officers at the scene, but no one in his entourage was arrested.

The three suffering from gunshot wounds were eventually taken to Denver Health Medical Center. One victim has already been released.

No arrests have been made as of yet, but authorities claims to have received numerous tips about the incident. According to reports, police are looking for a man armed with a rifle. It is still unclear if Schoolboy was the target of the attack.

“We’re trying to identify and locate the suspect,” said Kelley.

Aaliyah Biopic To Cover R. Kelly Marriage

The Lifetime network is scheduled to begin production on "Aaliyah: Princess of R&B" this summer.

With production scheduled to start this summer, a Lifetime network film chronicling the life and career of R&B singer Aaliyah will reportedly incorporate a long denied marriage to R. Kelly.

In 1994, Aaliyah and R. Kelly were reportedly married while the Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number singer was 15 years old (Kelly was 27). While both artists denied the claims, Vibe published a copy of a marriage certificate with Aaliyah’s age falsified as 18. The singer’s parents reportedly annulled the marriage the following year.

According to Rolling Stone, the Lifetime network movie Aaliyah: Princess of R&B is built on a 2002 biography of the singer titled Aaliyah: More Than a Woman.

In a comment published by the New York Post, the Lifetime movie’s executive producer Debra Martin Chase claims that the R. Kelly narrative "will be explored with care." 

"Aaliyah’s personal and professional relationship with R. Kelly will be explored with care in the film as we set out to depict her life with the utmost respect," she said. "Above all else, it’s our hope to inspire an entirely new generation with her music and larger-than-life talent."

Still, Rolling Stone reports that the singer’s family has publicly denounced the Lifetime production, saying, “she deserves to have a tribute much more grand than a television network debut.”

"Aaliyah was more than a singer, she was–and is still–an American music icon whose legacy continues to live on and influence today’s music culture, just as Ray Charles, Notorious B.I.G., Selena and Johnny Cash," a statement released by the family said.

"Considering the magnitude of her fans’ affection alone, she deserves to have a tribute much more grand than a television network debut that won’t even consider the perspectives of those who were closest to Aaliyah," the statement said. "Disregarding the families and dishonoring the legacies of celebrated figures who have passed on, big networks want to exploit their stories for a buck.  We’re here to make it clear that it’s not okay!"

Disney Channel alumni Zendaya has been cast for the role of Aaliyah and is slated to record at least four of the singer’s original tracks for the movie.

Rick Ross Blocked From Performing In Detroit; Reportedly “In Fear Of His Life
Rick Ross was

scheduled to headline HOT 107.5′s Summer Jamz 17 in Detroit this weekend, but reports coming out of the city is that the Maybach Music Group boss was not allowed to hit the stage.

[ALSO READ: Rick Ross Permanently Brands Himself “Rich Forever” With New Face Tattoo]

When it was time for Ross to perform an announcement was made that the Mastermind rapper did not make it into the venue. He was reportedly stopped by large group of people outside.

“We had Rick Ross right outside here tonight. At about 11 o’clock, when he was pulling up to come into Chene Park, he was met by 100 individuals outside,” 107.5′s program director Jay Hicks told the crowd. “We have tried to pull every resource together and asked him to come back. He is in fear of his life.”

HotHipHopDetroit.com reports rapper Trick Trick may have placed Ross in the “No Fly Zone” which is also the name of the Goon Sqwad member’s new single. That would mean Rozay cannot enter Detroit without the approval of Trick aka “The Mayor of Detroit.”

“[Ross] may never come back to Detroit,” Hicks added.

Is Tim Duncan’s Ex Outing Him As Gay?

Tim Duncan was just on the top of the world a few days ago, after winning the NBA Championship, but now he’s taking an L in the tabloids. According to BlackMediaScoop.com, Tim and his wife Amy entered into divorce proceedings in March. In June, the rumors of him having a gay relationship with his best friend emerge. But, it seems that Amy hired an investigator to dig up this dirt. She didn’t just start some crap on a blog. She allegedly unearthed evidence that Tim had an affair with a man while they were married.

Here is the rest of the run down:

An anonymous source claims that Duncan met his male lover during his college years and lived together throughout college, as well as years afterward. The source claims the alleged lover even lived with Duncan and Amy during the their first two years of marriage, before Duncan finally bought the man a condo of his own.
The source claims that Duncan is now working to have a gag order placed on Amy to keep his bisexuality a secret. “Amy treated Tim like a bitch throughout their marriage because she knew he was f**^*ng his BFF. Tim knows Amy was cheating on him but he’s willing to give her whatever she wants, because he doesn’t want Amy to tell the world that he’s bisexual.”
Here is Tim, his estranged wife and the man she claims tore them apart – allegedly!

Tim's lover in the middle...hmm

Talk about dirty ballin’ – sheesh!

Wiz Khalifa Named In Lawsuit Over Alleged Assault & Battery
Taylor Gang leader Wiz Khalifa was among the

defendants named in a lawsuit filed in West Virginia.

Ryan Smith is suing Khalifa (born Cameron Thomaz), along with Rostrum Records, 4.0 Entertainment, Tunez and Cue LLC, Daryl Tyler Jr., Drew Ellison of HowFlyHipHop, Leyonne Pryce, Courtney Williams, and 40 unnamed others, for an alleged assault that took place on April 11, 2013.

[ALSO READ: Kanye West Hit With $800,000 Lawsuit Over Sample]

According to The West Virginia Record, Smith claims he was attacked at the Tunez and Cue restaurant in Morgantown, and as a result he suffered a broken jaw and other injuries which led to him undergoing reconstructive surgery and dental work.

The suit states the defendants’ acts and omissions were the direct cause of Smith’s loss of income, disability, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. The complaint was filed on May 26 in Monongalia Circuit Court.

Smith says he attended the Taylor Gang Goodstock Tour event organized by Rostrum Records, 4.0, and HowFlyHipHop at Tunez and Cue. During an intermission Tyler and the unknown defendants allegedly started an “unprovoked” assault against Smith. The alleged attackers were said to be contracted by the named defendants.

Artists Videos May Soon Be Deleted From YouTube
It appears Google-owned YouTube is now involved in the “major vs. indie” debate that has been ongoing in the music industry for years. According to reports, 

the video streaming site is on the verge of completely deleting content from some independent artists.

[ALSO READ: Buckshot & Ebro Have Heated Debate About Hip Hop Radio, Battle Rap & “Minor Artists”]

YouTube is set to add a subscription service in the coming days. Reportedly named YouTube Music Pass, the new service will allow users to avoid ads and download music directly from the site.

“Music Pass” has led to new licensing deals with major labels and 90% of the industry, but indie labels are reportedly being offered “highly unfavorable” terms as compared to the big companies.

Some indies are refusing to participate. The independents argue they account for 35% percent of all music traffic on YouTube and that should be justification for a percentage of the revenue from Music Pass.

Google apparently has responded by threatening to omit the independents from the new YouTube service and remove their videos from the free site as well. Videos on Vevo should stay active since the site has separate licensing agreements.

“While we wish that we had 100% success rate, we understand that is not likely an achievable goal and therefore it is our responsibility to our users and the industry to launch the enhanced music experience,” stated Vice President and Global Head of Business at YouTube Robert Kyncl.

This development could have an enormous negative effect on the success of independent artists. Forbes‘ Hugh McIntyre writes:

Perhaps more important is the fact that many up-and-coming artists may have a harder time sharing their music and videos… Barring lesser-known names from the most popular streaming site in the world could seriously damage the growth of independent artists, and hurt the careers of future stars.

It is not clear at the moment how Google’s decision will affect unsigned acts.

Lil Wayne has announced that he is set to release two new albums this year.

Kim Kardashian Talks Down on Baby Blue

Kimmy Cakes may have gotten a little beside herself and her nanny is spilling the beans…

Life and Style is reporting that the porn reality star is full of herself and her baby, and even speaks ill of baby Blue Ivy.

“All moms think their kid’s the cutest – but most don’t go as far a s saying unkind things about other children! Yet when Kim Kardashian, 33, praises North, 1, it sometimes comes at the expense of Beyonce’s mini-me.

“She brags that Nori is cuter than Blue Ivy,” dishes an insider. ‘She loves it.’”

It’s ok to praise your child, but to do it at another kid’s expense by throwing them under the bus is a different story.

And then you wonder why Jay and Bey declined that wedding invite…

Aaliyah’s Family Working To Halt Lifetime Biopic
The Lifetime network recently announced its plans to turn the life of R&B singer Aaliyah into a TV movie, but the family of the late performer reportedly does not approve of the

channel producing a biopic about her.

[ALSO READ: Aaliyah Biopic Headed To Lifetime Network]

TMZ reports Barry Hankerson, Aaliyah’s uncle and owner of her label Blackground Records, is upset Lifetime did not contact the family about the movie. Hankerson also expressed his desire to have a film about his niece be a full theatrical motion picture and not a television production.

Hankerson adds the family will try to block any use of Aaliyah’s music in the film, and they have hired an attorney in order to get the movie shut down completely. Lifetime’s Aaliyah: Princess of R&B was set to feature Disney Channel regular Zendaya Coleman in the starring role.

Since her death in 2001, the presentation of Aaliyah’s likeness has been a contentious topic. On the music end, Drake wanted to release a posthumous album using her vocals, but fans of the One In A Million star rejected the idea when it was reported that Aaliyah’s longtime musical partners Timbaland and Missy Elliott would not be involved in the process.

Drake’s producer Noah “40″ Shebib later admitted negative reaction to a Drizzy/Baby Girl LP without Tim and Missy contributed to the project being cancelled.

Young Thug, Migos Sign With Lyor Cohen, Kevin Liles & Todd Moscowitz's 300 Label

Kevin Liles looking to reward artists "taking risks" with his new record label, 300.

Following the release of Young Thug’s debut single “Stoner” in October of last year, there has been much confusion surrounding the Atlanta, Georgia rapper’s label situation.

During a recent interview with Revolt, record executive Kevin Liles confirmed that Thug is in fact signed to his 300 label, which Complex reports is an imprint of Atlantic Records.

“Our business motto is this, if you’re out there taking risks, we wanna reward you with a great deal,” Liles said while speaking with Revolt. “There should be no cookie-cutter deal. There should be a smorgasbord of deals that we could do with entrepreneurs. We built a platform, similar to what we did with Roc-A-Fella, Murder Inc., Disturbing Tha Peace, Ruff Ryders, we just provided platforms for people to build companies.”

Prior to this week’s announcement, it was reported that Young Thug had signed with Cash Money Records. The rapper allegedly made the reveal while walking into a club with Birdman during NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans in February.

“Yeah,” Young Thug said, according to a Mass Appeal story published in February. “I signed.”

It was also rumored that Young Thug had signed with Gucci Mane’s Brick Squad Records. The rapper has appeared on several mixtapes and records pushed by the label.

In addition to Young Thug, Atlanta rap trio Migos have also reportedly signed with Liles, Todd Moscowitz, and Lyor Cohen's 300 label.

FIFA Bans Beats by Dre Headphones From 2014 World Cup

The World Cup may be the only event where one can claim the world is watching with a high degree of certainty, so it’s advertising heaven. Today (June 17th), reports surface that FIFA’s existing licensing agreement with Sony has forced them to ban World Cup players from wearing Beats by Dre headphones.

On June 5th, days before the World Cup began, Beats Electronics released a five minute mini movie entitled “The Game Before The Game” featuring World Cup players as well as Lil Wayne and other celebrities. Even though the video has amassed over 11 million views on YouTube, FIFA has banned players from wearing the headphones in the World Cup stadiums and during media events. Sony, official partner with FIFA has provided the players with headphones to wear during those times they are not permitted to wear any other headphone brand.

This is Beats Electronics second attempt at circumventing FIFA’s licensing rule. During the 2012 Olympics in London, the headphone maker provided headphones to the U.S. Basketball team, which included Lebron James who had a stake in the company at the time.

Jay Z Launches "40/40" Beverage In Duane Reade, Walgreens Stores

The beverage is described as an "Arnold Palmer-esque drink."

Jay Z has released his “40/40” drink in Duane Reade and Walgreens stores in the United States, according to Forbes.

The beverage, which retails for $1.99, is named after his nightclub of the same name and is described in the Forbes story as "an Arnold Palmer-esque drink” that is "intended for sports-loving males.”

Distributed by Go N’Syde, a company helmed by former Def Jam Recordings executive Kevin Liles, the Jay Z beverage also "includes an augmented reality tie-in that allows customers to point a smartphone at the container and call up a content platform connected to each act,” the Forbes article says.

“We have great tasting beverage,” Liles says. “But the second part of it is providing a new network for the brands or icons to communicate with their fans. I call it disrupting the consumer packaged goods industry by having your products actually talk to you.”

Mariah Carey has also released the Butterfly beverage through Go N’Syde.

Whoa! Chris Brown And Justin Bieber Crews Clash


I heard this one last night and I mulled it over and was like…REALLY? Chris Brown just just outta the bing and there are already rumors that he’s clashing. And Justin Bieber is out here calling people the N-Word and wanting to join the KKK (or something like that). And they go into the studio? So, over the weekend they reportedly went into the studio together and everything was reportedly “la la la,” I am hearing something else.

I am hearing from sources close that the crews got to fighting! This all went down supposedly at the Record Plant in Hollywood. Apparently they got into it right outside of the studio in the wee hours over the weekend. But, it had to be bad, because people were seemingly frantic to get out of there. They were Ubering and calling cabs like mad people. There were presumably a lot of girls there too. Hoping that Breezy doesn’t get himself into any more trouble Also, hoping Justin…ahhhh never mind.

Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith Cleared By Child Protective Services Following In

The couple is cleared by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) following an investigation regarding their 13-year-old daughter, Willow.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have been cleared by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), according to Radar Online

Jada Pinkett-Smith has commented on the image that appeared to spark the investigation. "Here's the deal: There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation," she said. "You guys are projecting your trash onto it and you're acting like covert pedophiles, and that's not cool."

Kanye West & Rick Rubin Working On "Yeezus" Follow-Up

Rick Rubin confirms that he is working with Kanye West on an upcoming album.

Rick Rubin has confirmed that he is working on new music with Kanye West.

Rubin made this announcement during a recent interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, according to NME. "Rubin previously helped produce the 2013 album Yeezus and confirmed that recording on a follow up has begun while chatting to BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe as part of a special interview which will be broadcast in four parts (Monday [through] Thursday) next week."

According to the report, Rubin and West are gathering vocal ideas. 

"Kanye West is coming in and we’re starting looking at vocal ideas for things for the next album," Rubin says.

Recently, Billboard published a report about a 2014 Kanye West album. In the report, Rubin was named among many acts set to contribute to the effort. Mike WiLL Made-It, Q-Tip, French Montana, Young Chop, Young Thug, James Blake, DJ Mustard and Tyga were also mentioned. 

West's last offering was critically acclaimed by some. For instance, HipHopDX awarded Yeezus with a 4.5 out of 5 in its review. However, it was criticized by many, also. 50 Cent, for example, said the following of the project“It doesn’t feel like Hip-Hop to me," he said. "It feels like a fusion of something else, like a weird combination of dance music sounds and stuff. It’s just him being an artist, you don’t have to agree with everything an artist does.

The Notorious B.I.G.'s Mother, Voletta Wallace, Explains Lil' Kim Rift In Unrele

"I was offended and I let her know," Voletta Wallace said of Lil' Kim. "She didn't like it and I don't give a hoot."

In a piece of unreleased footage from 2005 published to VladTV, mother of The Notorious B.I.G.Voletta Wallace explains the rift between herself and Lil' Kim following the rapper’s death.

“After my son’s death, believe it or not, Lil' Kim and I were close,” Voletta Wallace said. “But I guess she doesn’t—I’m a woman who speaks my mind. Sometimes you say things, the truth hurts, and you take it the wrong way. I did not like the way she was [parading around] national television and radio about Biggie, the love of her life. Her heart, her nose, her mouth, her butt, every part of her. Christopher is not here to defend himself. I was offended. I was offended and I let her know. She didn’t like it and I don’t give a hoot. As far as Lil’ Cease is concerned, they’re all struggling. Christopher is not here. He was a figure in their life that they looked up to and he was not here and everybody just go their separate ways. The ways that they went wasn’t the straight way. As a result they all went down the toilet. But I wish them all well. I might tell them to go to hell and mind their own damn business but deep down I wish them well.”

Asked how the group politics may have differed if her son was still alive, Wallace shared feeling like everybody would “be taking care of their business.”

“If Christopher was here today I know Kim wouldn’t be in jail. Lil’ Cease wouldn’t be on national radio yapping his mouth. They’d be taking care of their business, making beautiful music. But, hey, let’s not complain about spilled milk. It happens.”

The unreleased footage corresponds with a 2005 interview with SOHH released the same year. During the interview, Voletta Wallace also touches on her opinion of her son’s posthumously released music.

“You know when I hear posthumous stuff that makes me feel good because it's telling me that they have a great deal of respect for my son,” she said. “They love his work. They love his art. And they just want to be a part of Biggie, so it makes me feel closer to him. The only time I feel upset or violated is when they use it without asking. So when I hear something on the radio, I have to ask, ‘Did I give permission for that?’ And sometimes they say ‘yes,’ sometimes they say ‘no.’ And if they say ‘no,’ I really feel offended, not only offended but angry. Because I feel that it's downright disrespectful.”

Kanye Shades Jay-Z For Missing Wedding

This was bound to happen.

According to RadarOnline:

“Kris Jenner may claim that Jay Z and Beyonce’s shocking no-show at daughter Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Italian wedding “was the last thing on anyone’s mind”— but it seems the groom is actually fuming.

During his June 7 performance at the X Games in Austin, Texas, West, 37, suspiciously changed his lyrics to exclude his onetime best friend and music collaborator’s name.

In his song “Cold,” the star usually raps “Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.” But in his latest concert, West simply left “Jay” out of the line.

And in West’s tune “Blood on the Leaves,” he typically spews “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to Jay-Z.” In the first performance since his opulent wedding weekend, he said “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to (silence).”

Looks like West can’t take his mind off Jay Z and Beyonce’s snub.

As Radar exclusively reported, insiders say Beyonce actually refers to Kardashian as a “scandalous social climbing wh*re” behind her back, and Jay Z brushed off the extravagant Kimye wedding, calling it a “circus.””

Kanye West Hit With $800,000 Lawsuit Over Sample
So far the summer of 2014 has been a

season of celebration for Kanye West, but the Chicago rapper/producer did received some bad news recently. According to Radar Online, Ye is facing a lawsuit from The Persuaders producer Robert Poindexter.

[ALSO READ: “Kanye West’s New Testament” Short Film Released (VIDEO)]

In court docs filed in federal court, Poindexter accuses West of illegally using a sample from The Persuaders 1972 song “Trying Girls Out (the Composition)” for Ye’s “Girls Girls Girls (Remix)” off Freshman Adjustment 2. The sample was also used for Jay Z’s version which appears as a bonus track on The Blueprint.

Apparently a previous suit was thrown out earlier this year, because Kanye refused to respond. Poindexter is now seeking $800,000 in punitive damages in this case.

Late last year, West was also sued by singer Ricky Spicer from the group The Ponderosa Twins plus One. The former child star claimed Kanye used his voice on 1971′s “Bound” without permission for the Yeezus track “Bound 2.”

County Jail. The reality show star was arrested for allegedly owing $1 million in child support to former girlfriend Carol Bennett – the mother of two of Jordan’s children.

Prosecutors claim Stevie J was capable of paying the $6,600/month established in 1999 (later raised to $8,600 in 2011), but he has missed payments for the 17-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl repeatedly.

Dr. Dre's Beats Electronics Sale Nets LeBron James Multi-Million Payout

LeBron James made tens of millions of dollars in cash and stock upon Beats Electronics' sale to Apple.

LeBron James made more than $30 million in cash and stock when Apple purchased Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine’s Beats Electronics for $3 billion last month, according to Business Insider.

The story says the Miami Heat forward has owned a stake in the company since 2008. 

Iovine said in a statement last month that the Beats alliance with Apple is fitting.

“I’ve always known in my heart that Beats belonged with Apple,” Jimmy Iovine said at the time. “The idea when we started the company was inspired by Apple’s unmatched ability to marry culture and technology. Apple’s deep commitment to music fans, artists, songwriters and the music industry is something special.”

Donald Sterling Refuses Sale Of Los Angeles Clippers, Accuses NBA of “Discrimi
Less than three hours before the

San Antonio Spurs put on the greatest offensive display in an NBA Finals half, Donald Sterling accused the NBA of “discriminatory practices.” In a statement released yesterday (June 10th) the banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling explained why he was rejecting the recent $2 billion sale of the Clippers and accused the NBA of its own discrimination.

On June 3rd, Donald Sterling informed NBC4 at a charity event that he was “felt fabulous” about the Los Angeles Clippers being sold to ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and “Everything is every way it should be.” On June 9th, Sterling issued a letter entitled “The Team is not for Sale” and alleged that he was never ok with the sale of the team:

While my position may not be popular, I believe that my rights to privacy and the preservation of my rights to due process should not be trampled.

In a following statement from Sterling, released yesterday, he accused the NBA of being “hypocrites and bullies” and feels that hypocrisy has influenced their punitive decision regarding his banishment from the NBA and forced sale of his team:

The NBA has a history of discriminatory practices which is supported by numerous lawsuits filed by NBA employees claiming gender based discrimination. Adam Silver has worked for the NBA since 1992. He must know about the discriminatory practices of the NBA which are all matters of public record. The reason Adam Silver is focused on the sale, instead of the larger social issues, is because doing so would require him to examine the NBA’s own discriminatory practices, including those that occurred under his many years in leadership.

Sterling later accuses the NBA Commissioner Adam Silver of focusing his time and efforst on “signing autographs for TMZ.” On May 30th, Shelly Sterling indemnified the NBA against any lawsuit from Donald Sterling, which essentially means the Sterling trust would cover any NBA legal fees and damages from the lawsuit. Silver responded during the halftime telecast of Game 3 of the NBA Finals claiming he “has no idea what he’s talking about.”

Shelly Sterling will be in probate court later today (June 11th) to receive an emergency order on the team.

Check out Donald Sterling’s full statement below:

Behind The Scenes Drama Of The BET Awards

The damn show hasn’t even started and there’s already a bunch of backstage drama.

MediaTakeout reports that a reliable source shared with them that the show is already “changing s*** around,” due to trying to accommodate bigger stars.

“The BET awards are forever changing sh*t around – performers, announcers even the entire layout at the last minute to accommodate for bigger name stars. Anywho, August Alsina was in talks for performing up until last week. They fit him into schedule and everything . . . until CB got released and (BET Awards head) Stephen Hill was quick to call Chris people to arrange a surprise performance of Loyal and Show me. Stephen isn’t stupid, he knows Chris’s first time performance out of jail will bring in viewers.

Long story short August (even tho he’s cool with CB) thinks their energy is too similar and it’s his time now – and the producers will have to make a choice. [So he's NOT going to be performing].

Same thing for [Nicki] Minaj. She’s on this urban show tour to reintroduce herself as a serious rapper and does not want Iggy performing. But Stephen wants to capitalize off the buzz she has right now, on the flip side he doesn’t want to alienate Nicki and her crew….”

Andre 3000 Says He's Recording New Material

Andre 3000 discussed making a new round of material.

Andre 3000 says that he is working on new music, according hiphopwired.com

The story says that the OutKast rapper is working on new music and that he is in no rush to release it, statements he reportedly made while attending the 2014 Governors Ball Festival in New York City Saturday (June 7).

In June 2013, CeeLo Green spoke about his hopes for Andre 3000 following the passing of the OutKast rapper's mother last year.

"I'm hoping this really makes him angry enough to be artful again," CeeLo told HipHopDX at the time. "That's what I want for him...When I lost my mother, I feel like I definitely took on her energy...I was not the same person. I took on her will. I pray and wish [Andre 3000] the same positive cause and effect. I hope he gets something constructive out of it."

Two months later, BET executive Steven Hill said that he and Andre 3000 had discussed the rapper’s album.

Andre 3000's representatives addressed Hill’s tweet. "Regarding reports of a specific plan to release an album in early 2014," Andre 3000's rep told Billboard.com, "there is no official confirmation on that report."

Also in August 2013, CeeLo Green recounted a conversation he had with Andre 3000 regarding the OutKast rapper's musical future. 

"He just said he had a severe case of stage fright and just kind of been away from the game and didn't know if he could truly live up..." CeeLo said during a Goodie Mob interview with MTV. "Ah, I just feel like I'm talking too much personal stuff. I hope he don't mind. But he just said he was bothered by this bar that had been set and maybe he wants to do something different. He'll always be his worse competition, his worse critic and maybe he don't want to live up to what people think he should do...He's exceptional and has always been ahead of his time anyway. So anything he decides to do, next year or the year after that, we'll still be catching with what's on his mind."

Chief Keef Reportedly Evicted From Mansion

Chief Keef's landlord says the rapper was a good tenant, neighbors say Keef's time spent in Highland Park was "horrible."

Despite claims from Chief Keef’s landlord stating that the Chicago rapper was a good tenant, various sources have reported that the musician was in fact evicted from his home in Highland Park, a suburb of Lake County, Illinois this week.

According to RedEyeChicago.com, Keef was reportedly evicted this morning (June 10) after Lake County police officers arrived at his mansion. The site reports that officers confirmed the eviction, which stemmed from a May 7 court hearing held due to the $30,000 Keef was behind in rent.

Although police were reportedly on scene, Keef’s landlord, Bal K. Bansal says the rapper’s departure from the home was “mutual.”

"This is mutual," Bansal said. "It is not an eviction."

Others in the Illinois neighborhood claim that Chief Keef’s time spent in Highland Park was "horrible."

"It's been horrible," Ken Cooper, Keef’s neighbor said, according to RedEyeChicago.com. "They were certainly not good tenants."

This doesn’t serve as the first time the rapper has found himself in legal trouble over unpaid rent. In September of last year, it was reported that Chief Keef was sued for $10,000 in back rent by his landlord for the months of July and August.

New Sex Tape For Mimi And Niko

Well, this ain’t really new, because I told you that there was a part two coming. I will say that I was wrong about one thing: Mimi actually made a lot of money off this porno tape. Well, you already know…part 2 is coming, but with a twist. MediaTakeOut is reporting that they are going to make it a threesome. I don’t know if its a man or a woman, but I hope its a woman. Maybe it will be another Love and Hip-Hop ATL member so that somebody else can get paid too.

Jay Z Spotted Wearing Women's Jersey

Jay Z was seen wearing a piece from high fashion brand Rodarte in NYC earlier this week.

According to a recent report from Complex News, Jay Z was spotted wearing a woman’s shirt from clothing brand Rodarte earlier this month.

Originally reported by GQ, Jay was seen wearing the jersey from the brand’s current Spring/Summer line while out and about in New York City with Beyonce.

Complex named Jay alongside other rappers like Young Thug and Kid Cudi for wearing clothing often associated with women’s fashion.

The Rodarte jersey in question is currently available from retailers like Shopbop and The Corner beginning at a price of $388 and up. One of the retailers describes the jersey as a “technical mesh Rodarte pullover” that “pairs the look of a sports jersey with a clever twist on fashion. Scorpion mascots details the short sleeves, and ‘Rodarte 05’ lettering details the front.”

TLC Slams Rihanna for Showing Too Much Skin; Rihanna Strikes Back

Rihanna has never been shy about showing some skin, but she made some major shockwaves when she showed up in a sheer, sparkling gown at the Council of Fashion Designers Awards on Monday. The outfit left almost nothing to the imagination, and even less when she twerked for friends in a video that went viral. And all this came after she made headlines for posing nude in French magazine Liu.

[Related: Rihanna's Sparkly Sheer Dress, and More Stars' Riskiest Looks at the CFDA Awards]

TLC was not impressed. The groundbreaking female R&B duo spoke out on the Sunrise morning show in Australia, where they're currently playing sold-out shows. The Grammy-winning group criticized the "Diamonds" singer for constantly flaunting her body and using sex to sell records.

TLC discusses Rihanna at the 2:00 mark in the video below:

"Every time I see you, you don't have to be naked," said Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins.

"We became the biggest girl selling group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot," she added. "We could go around too with booby cakes [breasts] out all day long," she said.

"It's easy to sell sex," they added. 'It's hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say, 'Oh, TLC must be jealous,' but I call a spade a spade," T-Boz added.

Harsh criticism, to be sure, but it appears that RiRi may end up having the last laugh. In a clever, strategic maneuver, she changed her Twitter header to a photo of the members of TLC... topless. Oops! So while TLC may have had a valid point, Rihanna cleverly undermined them by making them look like hypocrites.

DishNation reports:

“”Jay Z is so enamored with his superstar wife’s style and image that he’s urging his longtime protégé Rihanna to clean up her bad girl image by dressing and acting more like Queen Bey.

The rap mogul – who discovered the Barbados-born beauty nearly a decade ago — recently signed Rihanna to his Roc Nation record label.

Now, a music industry insider tells Dish Nation, “Jay is trying to shape a less ghetto, more elegant image for Rihanna. He wants her to ditch the sheer dresses” – like the nearly nude one she wore to the June 2nd CDFA Awards – “and the marijuana logos and references.

“Jay warned Rihanna that he runs a tight ship. He suggested she tone down her drinking, smoking and partying and go on juice cleanse to rid her body of toxins.”

“Jay also told Rihanna to curtail some of her more outrageous social media posts.”

Not so coincidentally, Rihanna quit Instagram last month.

But the Jigga Man pulled out the big gun when he asked Beyonce – whom Rihanna once referred to as “gorgeous, a stab to my self esteem” – to mentor the ‘Diamonds’ singer.

Says the source, “Beyonce is giving Rihanna tips on speaking more eloquently in interviews and she went through her wardrobe and tossed out some of the wilder stuff, like too-short denim daisy dukes and leather chaps.”

“Beyonce also suggested less garish wigs and makeup, and she’s pushing for a moratorium on Rihanna getting anymore tattoos.”

“Jay also banned Rihanna from any future communication with Chris Brown and he was a driving force behind Rihanna dumping Drake, because he’s dissed Jay in the past.””

Looks like Hov refuses to take a loss…Rihanna better hop onboard quick!

Justin Bieber Reportedly Caught On Tape Singing About “Killing A N*gger”

Justin Bieber was hit was a major controversy recently when a video of him at age 15 making a racist joke surfaced online.

Bieber apologized for the five-year old clip saying, “As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was okay to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance.”

Bieber may need to prepare another statement, because The Sun reports to have another video of the Canadian performer using racially insensitive language. In the second clip, Bieber reportedly alters the words of his song “One Less Lonely Girl” to “One Less Lonely N****r.”

He also supposedly makes a reference to joining the white supremacist group the Ku Klux Klan and jokes about killing a n****r. There is no information about when the alleged tape was made.

“Unfortunately this is the devastating reality of how Justin has behaved and reveals his attitude toward such a deeply emotive subject,” a source told The Sun. “People need to see this. Normal kids in society do not make these kind of jokes. He is protected by a network of staff, but the camera doesn’t lie. This is the real Justin.”

According to TMZ, the person who had possession of the first tape reached out to Bieber’s camp to sell the video to them for $1 million. They eventually took the price down to $500,000, but Bieber’s representatives refused to purchase the footage, because they believed it would not be that harmful since the star was only 15 at the time.

Bieber has worked with many Hip Hop artists throughout his career including Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, Drake, Chance The Rapper, Lil Wayne, Future, and Migos. He is also signed to Usher Raymond’s label RBMG with Scooter Braun.

Hip Hop Album Sales: Week Ending 06/01/2014

Mariah Carey's "Me. I Am MariahThe Elusive Chanteuse," Michael Jackson's "Xscape" and Iggy Azalea's "The New Classic" are this week's Top 3 albums in Rap and R&B.

This week's Billboard Top 200 Albums chart features several R&B and Hip Hop acts. The top act is Mariah Carey, as the singer's first week sales for Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse are revealed. Michael Jackson continues to chart with Xscape in the project's third week of availability. Meanwhile, Iggy Azalea remains in the Top 10 with The New Classic.

Mariah Carey's Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse Arrives At #3

Mariah Carey's Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse album is the #3 album this week. The project, which can be streamed here, sold 58,580 copies. The project is based on a self-portrait that the singer crafted as a child. The portrait appears on the back cover of the disc. “Please don’t judge me for such a simplistic title," Carey said when she announced the project. "Come on, I was only three and a half." The Elusive Chanteuse is Mariah's new nickname, the singer says. 

Michal Jackson's Xscape Falls To #7

Michael Jackson's Xscape continues to chart. This week, the project's third week of availability, the effort sold 34,905 units. This is a 48 percent decrease from last week's sales. Overall, the set has sold 258,914 units. Epic Records recently spoke about the album. "Jackson’s essence and integrity, creating the best music you’ve never heard," Epic said.  

Iggy Azalea's The New Classic Remains In Top 10

Iggy Azalea's The New Classic continues to chart in the Top 10. The album sold 18,262 units this week, a 16 percent drop from the effort's last week sales. Overall, The New Classic has sold 145,603 copies. The project earned a 2.5 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review"The New Classic is a musical throne upon which the new blonde princess of Pop can rest her ample posterior," DX says in its review. "As Rap and Pop synergize again—yet this time without significantly embarrassing results—it opens the gate for Iggy Azalea to have an opportunity to shine. Sometimes, when Pop marketing and urban music perfectly commingle, we get Michael Jackson’s Thriller. In other cases, Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic aims high, but ultimately falls flat."

G-Unit Explains How They Ended Their Beef
50 Cent is either a master

marketer, a compassionate man or an odd mixture of both. Last night (June 1st), hours after releasing their first song together in years, G-Unit confirmed that a new album is in the works.

At the after-party for the screening of the 50 Cent-executive produced show Power, all of the members of G-Unit confirmed that their past differences are behind them and they are currently working on a new album. In the interview with XXL, Yayo explained how their brotherly connection made it easier for the group members to reconcile:

We just sat at the table, and it happened—that’s it. It feels good. We’re brothers. There’s nothing we can’t work out. Brothers fight all the time. We just dropped a new record. We working. We just taking it one day at a time.

Less than three months ago, 50 Cent was on Sirius XM’s Town Hall series and claimed “Young Buck, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo are the same person to me.” During the interview he explains what changed his opinion of the members:

I can do it. I have a compass, a moral compass that comes from my corner on 134th Street. We supposed to behave and respond to each other a certain way. We supposed to hustle to eat. We supposed to get what we supposed to get, not have things handed to us because nobody never gave me nothing. It may be my fault for enabling them at points. I expected them to continue to get what they want immediately. And then now having everybody back in the circle, the morale is great. They all ready to work. They been on ice long enough.

50 Cent’s new album  Animal Ambition is available today.

Justin Bieber Releases Statement Regarding Racist Remarks

Justin Bieber apologizes for using N-word in racist remarks.

Justin Bieber has released a statement regarding footage that was released of him making racist remarks as a 15-year-old

Bieber's statement is as follows, according to TMZ.

"As a kid, I didn't understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was ok to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn't realize at the time that it wasn't funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance. Thanks to friends and family I learned from my mistakes and grew up and apologized for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public I need to apologize again to all those I have offended.

I'm very sorry. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake. I was a kid then and I am a man now who knows my responsibility to the world and to not make that mistake again. Ignorance has no place in our society and I hope the sharing of my faults can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say but telling the truth is always what's right.

Five years ago I made a reckless and immature mistake and I'm grateful to those close to me who helped me learn those lessons as a young man. Once again....I'm sorry."

In the video, which can be seen here, the singer asks why Black people are afraid of chain saws and uses the N-word in his answer to his question.
