Somebody Got Beef With Beyonce

Wow. What do we have here? Beyonce is a hate magnet. The super star singer can’t seem to get a break these days and apparently Kerry Washington is the latest culprit. Now, this is definitely not from the “horse’s mouth,” but a source at Dish Nation says that Kerry is mad at B for staying with Jay. Peep the un-scientifcal data:

Emmy nominated TV star Kerry Washington has privately ripped the singer for not doing enough to empower young African American girls.
The 37-year-old star of the hit ABC show, who’s a political activist and outspoken feminist, “hates how Beyonce relies on her body and sexual innuendo to sell records,” an insider told Dish Nation.

“Kerry thinks Beyonce should spend less time shaking her booty and more time pushing other agendas, like the value of education and healthy eating, as well as promoting book reading.”

“To Kerry, it seems like Beyonce is sending a message to young women that standing by your man, even if he cheats on you, is perfectly acceptable. While Kerry’s peers, like Beyonce, exploit themselves for career advancement, she’s happy to keep her private life under wraps and let her talent do the talking. Kerry wishes Beyonce would do the same.”

Mike Tyson: Jamie Foxx Will Play Me In My Biopic

Jamie Foxx and Mike Tyson are soon to be linked together forever. During a recent interview, Mike Tyson revealed that Foxx and himself are in discussions for Foxx to portray the former heavyweight champion in an upcoming biopic.

Tyson reveals that “within a year to 18 months” an as-of-yet untitled biopic of his life will begin production with Foxx as the lead actor. According to Tyson, Foxx will portray him through multiple stages of his life with the aid of the same technology that transformed Brad Pitt in 2009’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:

Within a year to 18 months, we’re going to do the Mike Tyson story and he’s going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie’s pretty much my age so he can’t portray me but they have this new system.

In May, Foxx appeared on Live With Kelly and Michael discussing his interest to play Tyson. According to Foxx, he actually dressed up as Tyson and spent time with the controversial ex-boxer before the two ever agreed to do the film:

I got a chance to hang out with Mike when Mike was at his height and I watched [him] go from his height to where he is now, and I talked to him about doing his story. I think that story would be fantastic … and I had my makeup artist dress me up as Mike Tyson … People were literally coming up asking for autographs. So hopefully, Mike, if you’re listening, let’s make history.

Tyson says that Martin Scorsece will be involved in the film.

Judge Rules Against Donlad Sterling, Approves Los Angeles Clippers’ Sale
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and millions of others can breathe a sigh of relief. Yesterday (July 28th), 

Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas approved of that the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion.

The judge decided that Shelly Sterling acted in the interest of the Sterling Family Trust, which owned the team, after two doctors determined Donald Sterling to be suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Shelly was also awarded the invocation of Section 1310(b) of the California Probate Code which stipulates that even if Donald Sterling appeals, it can not stop the sale of the team.

Donald Sterling was not in attendance when the judge gave his verdict but his attorney Bobby Samini stated “he didn’t take it too hard” and “he just said, ‘Keep fighting.'” Shelly Sterling on the other hand was so excited she began promoting the Clippers immediately outside the courtroom after the verdict:

This is going to be a good thing for the city, for the league for my family and for all of us. Come see the Clippers next year.

The judge’s final decision will be reached on August 13th and the attorneys for Shelly and Ballmer state the sale of the Clippers should be finalized on August 15th.

Stephen A. Smith Suspension Exposes ESPN’s Bigger Problem

ESPN has a problem. It wants to be in the thick of things, to be part of every major debate pertaining to sports. But its commentators and analysts – rooted as they are in trade deadlines and X’s and O’s – can be loose cannons, occasionally getting in over their heads when pressed to address topics that go beyond their areas of expertise.

Stephen A. Smith – suspended for his remarks about domestic violence pertaining to the NFL’s questionable action regarding Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice – is just the latest to engender controversy in one of these scenarios.

First, Smith awkwardly suggested that women can play a role in provoking situations of domestic violence. Then he began apologizing and seeking to clarify those remarks via Twitter. Then he went on air and apologized some more. And then ESPN still opted to discipline him.

But the channel can’t really have it both ways. If the goal is to be provocative – and those participating in these free-for-alls are, inevitably, encouraged to be colorful and bicker – it only stands to reason people are occasionally going to say questionable or offensive things, especially when tackling hot-button political issues.

At this point, it’s hard to keep track of all the flare-ups. There was basketball analyst Chris Broussard expressing his faith-based disapproval of homosexuality in relation to Jason Collins becoming the NBA’s first openly gay player. Rob Parker was suspended for questioning quarterback Robert Griffin III’s “blackness.” Mike Ditka called Jonathan Martin a “baby,” saying he wouldn’t want to coach him, for the bullying accusations that resulted in the NFL acting against Miami Dolphins teammate Richie Incognito. Elsewhere, another former coach, Tony Dungy, created headaches for NBC Sports with his comments about Michael Sam.

And so it goes. Athletes are people, after all, and thus the stories about them can be as ugly and troubling as anything humanity can dredge up. But a channel that obsesses so relentlessly over what city LeBron James calls home is often ill-equipped to do a quick pivot and deal with matters that touch on harassment (workplace or sexual), gay rights or race.

ESPN has taken some steps to bolster its journalistic bona fides, from hiring Keith Olbermann – who, love him or hate him, has a background in covering news that goes well beyond the playing field – to columnist Jason Whitlock. For the most part, though, the network is too often left relying on whoever’s available to cover the story of the moment – a prisoner, like virtually everyone else, of the vagaries of the 24-hour news cycle.

Corporate justice is never dispensed with complete uniformity in these instances, and one can argue till the cows come home about who made comments that merited a suspension and who didn’t.

The bottom line, though, is that if ESPN continues to cover the breadth of sports in all its messy, complicated glory – and expects to do so by featuring people who spend most of their time preoccupied with the minutia of the game – well, let’s just say the PR department should keep several versions of a boilerplate apology on file, just in case.

Inside the crumbling marriage of Jay Z and Beyoncé

They are one of the most famous couples on earth, yet intensely private — rarely allowing a glimpse of anything but the picture of a marriage and partnership that is constantly, blissfully happy.

But a source who has been close to Beyoncé and Jay Z for years tells The Post that all is not well — and hasn’t been for quite some time.

This is the first peek behind the firewall that is Beyoncé and Jay Z Inc. — what drew them together, why they’re headed for a split and why love was never the thing that held them together.

It was a master stroke of marketing: She gave him class, he gave her cred.

“There’s still something there, even though it’s not going to last,” says the source. “Business is always part of the equation. They know they’re the king and queen of hip-hop — and really, all of music. Neither wants to lose that.”

Their current “On the Run” tour is predicted to gross $100 million, according to Forbes — which also ranked Beyoncé the world’s most powerful celebrity of 2014, with Jay Z ranked sixth.

Billboard ranked the couple No. 1 on their February 2014 Power 100 list. Their combined net worth, according the International Business Times, is nearly $1 billion.

But in the weeks since Beyoncé’s sister Solange was caught attacking Jay Z in a hotel elevator after the Met Gala, the couple’s tightly controlled image has been crumbling.

And while they’ve been pushing back, kissing on stage and playing happy family on Instagram, the source says Jay and Bey are permanently broken, and that both are at fault.

“Knowing them as I do, obviously there’s a little something to certain rumors,” the source says. “When your man or your woman isn’t getting it done for you, and I’m talking emotionally, not necessarily sexually…they keep things quiet.”

Not for much longer.

‘They’re the only sharks’

When Jay Z and Beyoncé first got together in 1999, she was a star but a sheltered one.

At 19, she still lived with her parents in Houston — dad Matthew, who quit his job at Xerox to manage her career with Destiny’s Child, and mom Tina, who became the group’s stylist. She hinted at being a virgin, and it’s reported that she left school at 14.

Jay Z, then 30, had emerged from the Brooklyn projects as a hip-hop powerhouse. Having released his critically acclaimed debut “Reasonable Doubt” in 1996, he had a breakthrough commercial smash with 1998’s “Vol. 2…Hard Knock Life.”

A year later, Jay Z was arrested for allegedly stabbing producer Lance “Un” Rivera in a dispute over bootlegging; Jay pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and walked away with three years’ probation.

Jay Z and Beyoncé have always been circumspect about the beginnings of their romance, even as they stoked intrigue with their collaborations.

After breaking with Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé’s next project was a duet with Jay on his “’03 Bonnie and Clyde,” and in the video, they played a hip-hop version of the outlaw couple.

When Beyoncé released her first solo album, 2003’s “Dangerously in Love,” Jay appeared on two tracks — including the first single and video for “Crazy in Love.”

It was a master stroke of marketing: She gave him class, he gave her cred.

Jay Z was infatuated with Beyoncé, says the source, but the bottom line was business; he knew he could do big things for her, and together they could be a juggernaut.

For Beyoncé, however, it was a slower burn. According to an interview with the Web site Celebuzz, her uncle Larry Beyince said that initially his niece had no interest.

“He was after her and she wasn’t,” Beyince said. “She told me she wasn’t too fond of him…I guess she wasn’t attracted to him.”

The source says Beyoncé was most interested in Jay’s mind. “Jay’s a kingmaker; she recognized that. This was a come-up for her, no question. She had to learn the ropes as presented by Jay — but really, this was mostly about business.” As for dating others, he says, “they each had guilty pleasures.”

The source believes that, along the way, she did really fall for Jay Z, and her parents, who had groomed Beyoncé to be a star from a very young age, were fine with it — for a time.


But Matthew Knowles — who was described by former Destiny’s Child member LaTavia Roberson as “a drill sergeant” who made the girls work hours a day, seven days a week — slowly found himself edged out of his daughter’s life and career by Jay Z.

Beyoncé had gone from one man to another, never truly being on her own.

“There’s no bigger controller than Jay,” the source says. “She’s great, but she’d be a little lower on the totem pole if it weren’t for hooking up with him.”

In terms of ambition, talent, business acumen and work ethic, Beyoncé and Jay Z were perfectly matched. “They are solid, solid business people who know what they’re doing,” says the source, with Jay the mastermind.

Their image, joint and separate, is based on exclusivity and unavailability; everything from the drop date of an album (2013’s “Beyoncé,” with its surprise one-day onslaught of 14 tracks and 17 videos) to a baby (Blue Ivy, born on a cleared-out hospital floor in NYC) is shrouded in mystery.

Instead of interviews, they post to Instagram or drop clues in their lyrics.

Beyoncé herself has spent every single day since 2005 being trailed by her own personal camera crew, which documents each waking moment of her life.

In 2013, Beyoncé told GQ magazine that she stores the footage in a climate-controlled warehouse based on the NBC library.

“I now know that yes, I am powerful,” she told GQ. “I’m more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand.”

“They don’t subscribe to that ‘teach-a-person-to-fish’ thing,” says the source. “They’ll give you a fish once in a while, but they let everyone know that they’re the only sharks in the water.”

Jay hangs with some of the crew from [his company] Roc Nation, but he’s doing bigger things than even they can keep up with. And Beyoncé only really gives her sister Solange and [ex-Destiny’s Child members] Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams any real love. But even they can’t swing by without first getting clearance.”


And it can be hard to stay in touch — Beyoncé and Jay Z both change their cellphone numbers every two weeks.

Even other celebrities aren’t immune to quality control. It’s not who they hang out with, says the source — “it’s who hangs out with them.” According to the source, they shunned Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s wedding because it was too low-rent for the Jay Z/Beyoncé brand. “They are guarding like hell their status,” the source says. “Beyoncé wasn’t going to allow a Kardashian to socially climb her. And Jay didn’t want Kanye with Kim — he thinks it’s bad for business. I think Jay lost a little respect for Kanye there.”

‘Business first’

Over the past few months, says the source, Beyoncé has been losing respect for Jay Z and, ever on-brand, she’s been dropping hints.

While performing “Resentment” during the couple’s June 28 show in Cincinnati, Beyoncé changed the lyrics from “Been ridin’ with you for six years” to “Been ridin’ with you for 12 years.” That would reference the year they became a couple.

“Solange was like, ‘Enough is enough — you must be [screwing] Rihanna.’

 - Solange, according to source

And after the lyric “I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me,” Beyoncé tacked on the lines, “She ain’t even half of me/That bitch will never be.”

Recent photos show that the “IV” tattooed on her ring finger — for her birthday, Jay’s birthday, and their wedding date — has been erased.

The source says the elevator fight after the Met Ball was really over Jay’s protégé Rihanna, who he allegedly planned to meet later that night at his 40/40 club.

“Solange was like, ‘Enough is enough — you must be [screwing] Rihanna,’” says the source. “To many people who know them, they know it’s not out of the realm of possibility.”

Today, the source says, it’s not whether they’ll split, but how they’ll split — adding that the only time Jay and Beyoncé are really together is on stage. They’re allegedly traveling with marriage counselors, but Jay — as he’s always done — spends much of his time on the phone, tending to business.

“His phone’s constantly ringing,” says the source, “Jay trying to make deal after deal.”

Calls to representatives for the couple by The Post were not returned.

The question now is whether to stay married while essentially living separate lives — becoming the Bill and Hillary of hip-hop — or publicly divorce.

Ultimately, it will be about the brand.

“There’s face-saving involved — they don’t want to be looked at like other celebrities out there,” says the source. “They are business people first, entertainers second. Husband and wife comes somewhere down the line.”

Study Shows Lack Of Racial and Gender Diversity Among Writers For MTV, HBO, Disn

For MTV, 42% of their writers were women and only 22% were minorities.  HBO, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, Starz, Fox, USA Network, Spike TV and FX had under 25% of their writers being minorities and/or women.

Tiny Reacts To Floyd Mayweather Comments

Tiny supports Mayweather's claims that his press conference quotes were misreported.

After a Floyd Mayweather press conference comment about an alleged sexual relationship with the wife of T.I. was apparently taken out of context, Tiny herself responded and supported the boxer's claims that the quote was misreported.

In an Instagram post last weekMayweather wrote the following: "At the press conference, I said ' he thinks I was f*cking his b*tch'. I DID NOT say ' I was f*cking his b*tch'. I've never been with Tiny sexually. I respect her situation and I thinks she's a good person. I would never disrespect a marriage.

Visiting The Rickey Smiley Morning Show in support of her new single and to address the situation, Tiny agreed that "he didn't say that."

"Actually, I went back to it because first of all that is so untrue, she said. "I could just not imagine him saying, 'Oh yeah, I did that.' So, I had to go back [and] put my earbuds on so I could really, really hear. When he says it he said, 'He thought...' but when he says it his head is kind of like turned to the side. If you look at his mouth, his mouth is moving, he's saying, 'He thought.' So, he didn't really say that for real, for real. Everybody took it and the press, that's what they do. But he didn't say that 'cause that never happened. He's never been in a room with me by myself. Anytime that he's been around me it's been people like this. So I couldn't imagine him saying, 'Yeah, I did that.'"

Responding to comments that it "wasn't cool" that the boxer referred to her by the "B word," Tiny said, "Yeah well, you know, I can't say that it was. You right."

Whitney Houston’s Mom Says No One Working On The Lifetime Biopic Knew Whitney
A mother will always defend her daughter. In a recently released statement, Cissy Houston slams the upcoming Lifetime biopic about Whitney Houston’s relationship with Bobby Brown, claims the family is not involved in the film.

Back in May, Whitney Houston’s co-star in  the film “Waiting To Exhale”, Angela Basset was announced as the director of the upcoming Lifetime biopic. While Bassett starred in the movie with her, she admitted to Entertainment Weekly on June 26th that she does not consider the two to have ever had a close relationship:

No, I don’t. I can’t. I can’t say that, but I think that I had an opportunity, of course, to appreciate and love her from afar and then to spend time with her in a working situation.

According to Cissy Houston’s statement obtained by Entertainment Tonight, “Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family’s objections.” She does not name Bassett by name but does remark that the people working on the film did not have intimate knowledge of Houston’s life:

No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby. In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her.

At the end of the statement, Cissy writes “Please please let her rest.”

Whitney Houston’s music will be featured in the Lifetime biopic, however they will be covers sang by Deborah Cox due to Lifetime’s inability to secure her song rights.

Memphis Bleek Confirms Jay Z Ghostwrote For Him

Memphis Bleek says he and Jay Z have an "older brother, little brother relationship."

Among the various artists featured on Jay Z’s debut album, Reasonable Doubt was Brooklyn rapper and long-time friend of Jay Z's, Memphis Bleek. Bleek spoke on his addition to the album, which was a verse on the track “Coming Of Age,” during a newly-published interview with Vlad TV.

He revealed that his verse on “Coming Of Age” was actually ghostwritten by Jay Z. Bleek added that Jay Z had a set plan in mind for the album and revealed that despite spitting a verse that Jay wrote, he “still had to do my thing” once the song was released.

“No, he wrote it,” Bleek said. “He had it already written. That’s all Jay’s plan. Remember—Come on, I was 14, 15-years-old. You think [that] was my vision then? Yeah, I just read it and spit it myself. I don’t need a demo version. Come on, this is not ballet dancing. I know how to rhyme. All you gotta do is tell me what to say I’mma say it. So, that’s what it was. It just, you know, like I said it’s his album. It’s his record. He wanted it his way. And at the end of the day after that song went off I still had to do my thing.”

Prior to speaking on his verse on "Coming Of Age," Memphis Bleek detailed the type of relationship he has with Jay Z. He says he’s always seen the rapper as an older brother or uncle figure who wanted better for those in his Brooklyn neighborhood.

“Jay is like—You would say an older brother,” he said. “Like an uncle to me. Like that. Say he come through the projects or whatever and I’m in the building hustling, Jay the type of dude like ‘Yo, let me see what you got. You ain’t got nothing.’ Show ‘em the work. He’ll throw your shit away. Like ‘Yo, you better get out of here. I’mma tell your moms you hustling.’ He was the older dude that didn’t want that for us. You know what I’m saying? So, as far as relationships we didn’t hangout. I didn’t go to The Roxy with them or nothing like that back then. It was just like older brother, little brother relationship. And then like once I told him I knew how to rhyme it was just all she wrote from there. It was like ‘Why not help the little guy from my building?’”

In addition to a feature from Memphis Bleek, Jay Z’s Reasonable Doubt also included guest appearances from Foxy Brown, The Notorious B.I.G., and Mary J. Blige.

Ray J Charged With 10 Crimes; Sexual Battery Charge Clarified

Ray J faces 10 charges, including misdemeanor sexual battery charge, four counts of resisting arrest, three counts of assault and battery and two counts of vandalism. His sexual battery charge was recently clarified by TMZ.

The Los Angeles County D.A. has charged Ray J with 10 crimes, according to TMZ

One charge that the D.A. and the police disagree on is regarding sexual battery. 

As reported in May, following Ray J's arrest in Beverly Hills, California, TMZ said the following of the incident: "He somehow made contact with a woman's butt and that's why cops were called. They determined it was not a sexual battery. The contact was 'incidental.'" 

The D.A. disagrees, TMZ now reports. 

After leaving the Beverly Hills bar, Ray J was reportedly arrested, but he also kicked out a window of a police vehicle and spit on an officer. The singer would later say he was claustrophobic, which caused him to kick the window out. 

Ray J has been charged with a misdemeanor battery charge, four counts of resisting arrest, three counts of assault and battery and two counts of vandalism. As TMZ reports, all of Ray J's charges are misdemeanors.

It may not seem like it, but it has been two years since Kendrick Lamar released his debut

major label album good kid, m.A.A.d city. That’s partly due to the fact that Kendrick dominated 2013 from just one verse off Big Sean’s “Control” and his seven Grammy nominations kept his name in the news in 2014.

K. Dot is now hard at work on his next studio project, and according to Complex the Compton emcee has already recorded 30-40 songs for the album. Producers Tae Beast and Sounwave are on board for the GKMC follow-up as well as Kendrick’s mentor Dr. Dre. The currently untitled LP is likely to hit stores in the fourth quarter of this year.

Even with the overwhelming commercial and critical success of good kid, m.A.A.d city, Kendrick states he does not feel pressure to match what he accomplished with his groundbreaking last project.

“If I keep focusing on, ‘I need to make something better than good kid,’ it’s going to be just that,” says Kendrick. “That’s not challenging yourself. I don’t want to become that person reflecting on what has been done. What I’m doing now is the question. I’m only as good as my last word, my last hook, my last bridge.”

The platinum selling artist seems centered on his need for creative progress. For Kendrick, the process of making music is similar to seeking a higher state of consciousness.

“This is truly a blessing from a higher power, and as long as I understand that there’s really no limitations to what I can do. Everything is forward with me,” said Kendrick. “When I’m in the studio I’m looking for creativity I haven’t matched yet, a feeling I haven’t felt. It’s a high. When you look at people like Jay Z, Nas, Dr. Dre, these people are established, but they love music and they love that high. You always want that feeling of creativity.”

Former Destiny’s Child Member Arrested For Disorderly Conduct
During their run, Destiny Child’s went through several line up changes. One version of the girl group featured Beyoncé Knowles,

Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, and Farrah Franklin.

Farrah only lasted in DC for a few months and has been virtually out of the limelight since, except for occasional run ins with the law. Now the California native is back in the news once again for another arrest.

The Daily Mail reports Franklin was arrested on Sunday morning in South Carolina for disorderly conduct. The singer was said to have been partying with football players Ricky Sapp and Da’Quan Bowers.

The police were called after Franklin left Sapp’s apartment alone. She was later found in a stranger’s front yard believed to be “highly intoxicated.”

Sapp and Bowers told authorities they believed Franklin had been doing drugs. Franklin apparently told police she wanted to sleep in the woods because she had nowhere else to go. She was arrested and then released on bond.

This is the second time Franklin has been arrested for disorderly conduct. She was also taken into custody in 2011 in Los Angeles for the same offense.

Zendaya Coleman Explains Why She Was Not “Morally Okay” Playing Aaliyah In B
Trying to be someone else is hard enough when it’s not one of the most revered artists in R&B of the past 20 years. In a recent interview, the actress originally set to

play Aaliyah in the upcoming Lifetime biopic Aaliyah: Princess of R&B.

Last Friday (July 18th), Alexandra Shipp was announced as the new star of the Aaliyah biopic after Zendaya Coleman dropped out last month. According to Coleman’s three part Instagram message, she did not feel “morally okay moving forward with the production” for a number of reasons, one being disagreements with Aaliyah’s family over music rights and more:

The reason I chose not to do the Aaliyah movie had nothing to do with the haters or people telling me I couldn’t do it. I wasn’t talented enough or I wasn’t black enough. The main reasons were the production value wasn’t there. There were complications with the music rights and I felt like it wasn’t being handled delicately considering the situation and I tried my best to reach out to the family on my own.

Days after Coleman was announced as the lead actress in the Lifetime movie, Aaliyah’s uncle and former manager Barry Hankerson informed TMZ that Aaliyah’s family was displeased with Lifetime’s refusal to involve members of the family. Hankerson claimed that the family would block any usage of Aaliyah’s music in the film.

Ma$e Abandons Church To Return To The Rap Game

Not again.

TMZ is reporting that once again Ma$e is jumping ship and leaving his followers in the dust to pursue rap.

“On-again, off-again rapper/pastor Mase has officially left his parishioners of the El Elyon International Church high and dry … and has run back to the rap game full time.

Mase, who “retired” from rap in 1999 to pursue a career in the ministry, built up thousands of followers split into two churches in Atlanta and Phoenix … preaching the virtues of marriage and family values.

That all came crashing down earlier this year when Mase and his wife divorced, causing most of his flock to flee in anger. As for those stalwart loyalists, well Mase says … screw them.

He’s dropped all ties with both churches and is playing regular rap gigs around L.A., jumping back into his former lifestyle hardcore.”

Let us pray.

Beyonce Goes Left On Jay-Z Groupies

Welp, insiders claim Bey went Joe Clark a few days ago during a stop on the On The Run tour, tossing Hov’s groupies out the door, but not before having a few choice words.

Star Magazine reports:

“According to sources Beyonce recently had a major meltdown during her On the Run tour with hubby Jay Z, 44, over the constant flow of sexy groupies that make their way backstage.

“Jay had all these women in his room, and Beyonce ordered everyone out,” says a tour insider, who adds the couple have separate but adjacent dressing rooms.

“She called the women cockroaches and said they need to be fumigated. She gave death stares to every person as they filed out one by one.””

If this is true, Queen Bey ain’t playing no games. But who could blame her? #thesehoesaintgotnomanners.

Dame Dash Blasts Kanye West For Being Disloyal
Dame Dash’s 2014 public statements have been mostly occupied with taking shots at what he calls “culture vultures” in Hip Hop, but the mogul turned his attention to one of his former Roc-A-Fella brethren in a recent interview. While speaking with Shade 45, Dame

called out Kanye West for not being more supportive of the Roc co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke after his incarceration.

[ALSO READ: Dame Dash Explains Difference Between Working “With” & Working “For” Corporate (VIDEO)]

I’m a little tight with Kanye because he hasn’t reached out to Biggs. I don’t like that s**t. So, Kanye, holla at me. I don’t like that s**t… Biggs was the one that was like, ‘Yo, Dame. Pay attention to what Kanye’s doing. Make sure you send him that music.’ No one’s reaching back. Certain n***as have, that’s why I’m not calling everybody out, but Kanye hasn’t. And he hasn’t checked on his kids. He hasn’t checked on his family. No trial. And the s**t I’m hearing him complain about is irrelevant based on the fact that he doesn’t look back to the people that helped him. So period, until he holla at me – we gotta have a conversation. Period.

Kareem “Biggs” Burke pled guilty to conspiring to distribute more than 100 kilos of marijuana in 2012. He was sentenced to 5 years in prison. Biggs played a huge part in the founding of Roc-A-Fella along with Dash and flagship artist Jay Z in 1995. Kanye was brought onto the roster in the early 2000′s.

Could this be the end of Beyoncé and Jay Z?

Beyoncé and Jay Z have more than 99 problems and only “divine intervention” can save the troubled marriage, a source close to the powerful couple has told The Post.

While Jay Z seemingly is the one most at fault, he’s also the one doing all in his power to keep the couple together, even hiring marriage counselors who are believed to be traveling with the super duo on their tour, the source said.

“They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing . . . This is a huge concert tour and they’ve already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front,” the source said.

Despite the tens of millions the couple will pocket from the current tour, this will certainly be their last and the end of the tour could officially spell the end of the marriage, the source said.

“There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed,” the source said, admitting that he thought things would get better after the birth of the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

“For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family,” the source said.

“But, after a while, Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey. They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn’t.”

Meek Mill Will Reportedly Remain In Jail Until September

A lawyer for Meek Mill says that two requests for emergency hearings for the rapper have been denied.

It appears that Philly rapper Meek Mill will remain in jail until at least September. According to a news report from, one of the Maybach Music Group musician’s lawyers, Christopher Warren, requested an emergency hearing, which was later rejected by the judge who sentenced Meek.

Warren revealed to that he’s unaware of why exactly the rapper was jailed in the first place.

"All I'm asking for is a hearing to learn why [his jailing] is constitutional and they won't even give me that," Warren said.

Although Warren’s requests were turned down, the lawyer says he now plans on filing a writ of mandamus. The writ of mandamus is an order, which asks that a higher court demand that the judge in the matter, Judge Genece Brinkley, hold an emergency hearing for Meek.

"The last thing I want to do is go running to another judge to tell another judge what to do. But we have no choice," the lawyer said.

Warren plans on filing the order on Monday (July 21).

Meek Mill was arrested earlier this month over what was reportedly his behavior while on probation, he previously posed with a gun in a picture posted on Instagram, and was sentenced to three to six months in jail.

Days after Meek’s arrest, Maybach Music Group founder Rick Ross issued a statement on the matter.

“Yesterday, my brother, Meek Mill ran into some unfortunate legal issues,” Ross said in the second half of his statement. “It happens. However, his team, our team, will continue to execute Meek’s plan as close to schedule as possible. His album is coming. We ask that the fans and the media continue to support him and his music during this time. He’ll be home soon. ‘Dreams Are Worth More Than Money’, and family is worth more than Everything. MMG FOR LIFE.”

New Actress Playing Aaliyah In Upcoming Biopic Revealed
Aaliyah was One In A Million and finding an actress to

play her may have the same odds. Today (July 18th) the lead actress for Aaliyah:Princess of R&B has been replaced and the new actress was recently revealed.

Last month, Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman dropped out as playing the late R&B legend for undisclosed reasons. Nickelodeon star Alexandra Shipp has been tapped as her replacement according to The Hollywood Reporter. Shipp has acted in Nickelodeon’s House of Anubis and is slated to appear in the upcoming Drumline 2A New Beat.

Coleman faced criticism when she was announced as acting as Aaliyah in the upcoming film due to her skin complexion. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Debra Martin Chase, exec producer of the biopic, addressed the controversy:

I’m African-American. What does that mean? She’s biracial, but she identifies as black. She has a very strong black father. It’s very narrow and short-sighted. It’s not the world we live in today. And she, like you, like all of us, encompasses all her cultural experiences and heritage. And most importantly, she physically resembles her.

Check out a picture of Alexandra Shipp below:

Nick Young: Iggy Azaela Was Affected By BET Awards Backlash Caused By Nicki Mina
There is no NBA basketball happening outside of unbearably unwatchable Summer League games so Los Angeles Lakers’

shooting guard Nick Young is now using his time to speak out for his girlfriend. In a recent interview, Young admits that Azaela was negatively affected by the backlash she received after Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech at last month’s BET Awards.

During her acceptance speech after winning the Best Female Rapper award for the fifth straight year, Minaj remarked that  “when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it” and thanked BET for honoring authenticity. While Azaela posted on her personal Instagram account that she was “unbothered by anything that happened at the BET Awards”, her boyfriend says different to New York Daily News:

I had to deal with the aftermath of all that. When she came home and was going through her phones, hearing everybody talking trash about her. I had to be there for her.

On July 2nd, Minaj posted on her personal Twitter account that she has “congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud.”

Linda Perry Says Beyonce Takes Credit For Songs She Didn’t Write Because She

Beyonce has apparently taken the

adage “giving credit where credit is due” in the wrong direction. In a recent Reddit AMA session, fame Rock artist, Linda Perry addressed Beyonce taking songwriting credits for songs she did not write.

According to Perry, Beyonce and other artists similar to Beyonce take songwriting credits for songs they don’t write due to the assistance their fame gives the song’s popularity:

Thats not songwriting but some of these artists believe if it wasnt for them your song would never get out there so they take a cut just because they are who they are. but everyone knows the real truth even Beyonce. She is talented but in a completely different way.

On numerous occasions Beyonce has stated or intimated that she wrote her hit song “Irreplacable”, particularly in a 2008 Marie Claire where she states “‘I’m sure people think I wrote it about [Jay-Z] or something, but… the obvious person is not the person at all. In a 2012 interview with The Breakfast Club, Ne-Yo, one of the co-writers for “Irreplacable” stated Beyonce only wrote the background harmonies for the song.

Stevie J and Benzino Go To War Over Nude Photo Leak

Damn. These dudes really define frenemies. I thought they were boys, but its seems like they are not. Stevie J has images of Benzino’s Ex in a compromised position of sex and proceed to leak them. And Zino went off. Maybe they are boys. I dunno. Nevertheless, some people are saying that they are only beefing to keep their jobs on “Love & Hip-Hop” and that this is as manufactured as a Barbie doll.

Peep how it went down:

R. Kelly Announces Plan To Drop R&B For Another Genre On Future Album
The self-proclaimed “Pied

Piper of R&B” is looking to jump into another genre of music. R. Kelly announced at Chicago’s 24th Annual Chosen Few Picnic Weekend that he plans to go in a different direction for a future album.

[ALSO READ: R. Kelly Talks Black Panties, Lady Gaga, & Classic Songs In CRWN Interview]

“I’m working on a house album right now, and I want y’all to know, it’s coming,” said Kelly. “Y’all know I love music, and I feel like I can do anything when it comes to music because I am music. Just like y’all.”

Kelly’s last LP was 2013′s Black Panties. He is also working on an album called White Panties. It’s not clear if White Panties will be the house music project.

When speaking about White Panties with V Magazine earlier this year, the singer-songwriter said, “You can expect a whole other level.”

He added, “I always follow what my spirit tells me to do. When I get into the studio I write from my heart. I try to write life and not songs. People live life and when you write life you’re going to mess around and touch somebody’s heart, and they’ll relate to you and what you’re singing about.”

Fights Highlight "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" Reunion

An argument between Stevie J and Benzino reportedly leads to several fights during "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" reunion taping.

Although regular taping for the third season of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” concluded months ago, drama between castmates has continued and reportedly reached its peak during the taping of the season three reunion yesterday (July 15).

According to various sources, including TMZ, a huge brawl broke out when Benzino began to poke fun of Stevie J and his alleged wife Joseline Hernandez’ use of drugs. The insult ultimately led to several fights involving Benzino, Benzino’s fiancée Althea Heart, Stevie J, Joseline, Waka Flocka Flame’s mother and fiancée, and Mimi Faust, the mother of Stevie J’s daughter.

After Benzino was confronted by Stevie J who was stopped by security, Joseline reportedly attacked Benzino’s fiancée, Althea.

The fight between Althea and Joseline then gave way to a handful of other fights at the reunion.

TMZ reports that 911 was eventually called and three people were treated due to their injuries.

It is unclear what set off the brawl, but Stevie J and Benzino have been at odds with one another after the producer leaked a naked picture of Benzino’s fiancée, Althea.

Following yesterday’s taping for the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” reunion, a handful of those present at the taping turned to Twitter to share their thoughts on what happened.

Benzino’s fiancée denied rumors that Joseline was jumped and says she was merely defending herself when she attacked Joseline.

Joseline briefly addressed the brawl in a tweet sent yesterday.

It’s currently unclear when the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” reunion will air.

Young Joc Headed To Divorce Court

Honestly I had no idea Young Joc was even married considering his behavior on LHHATL this season, but yes Joc is indeed married and his wife is fed up with the reality TV shenanigans and is filing for divorce.

TMZ reports:

The wife of “Love and Hip Hop” star Yung Joc must have finally reached her tolerance level of watching her hubby and his sidepiece on TV … so she’s pulling the plug on their marriage.

Alexandria Robinson filed to divorce the 31-year-old rapper. They were high school sweethearts and have been married for 13 years. They have 3 kids.

Alexandria acknowledges in her docs … she and Joc have been separated since Feb. 2012.

She wants the works — spousal and child support. She says she only pulls in $1,875 a month. But she’s banking on getting royalties from his music publishing rights.

Not surprisingly, Alexandria cites adultery as grounds for the divorce.

Joc’s been carrying on a high profile relationship with Karlie Redd on “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.” They live together on the show. And get this … the GF gets really pissed off when she suspected he cheated on her.”

Now why are you just now filing them papers?

Rick Ross Addresses Meek Mill, Wale Feud

Rick Ross: "As soon as the tweets went out, I spoke to both of them on the phone."

Rick Ross has addressed the recent feud between Meek Mill and Wale

"It’s a misunderstanding," Rick Ross says in an interview with Bullett. "As soon as the tweets went out, I spoke to both of them on the phone. Those two guys, they’re brothers. At the end of the day, they’re brothers and it’s time to turn up right now. It’s time for all of us to turn up and stay turned up, you know what I mean? But it’s all love between those two and everybody knows that.

"That’s why you seen whatever was said, the little brotherly jabs and then that was it," Ross adds. "That’s all you’re going to see. They’re two real dudes, two successful dudes, and we all came from the same place. When I first brought them on the team, we all drove to our first video set together. It was just us three, and I felt we all was at the bottom at the time. You know, Wale was in his new situation, Meek in his first situation, and me in my very first situation being a CEO, being a bawse with my own label deal. So we all was on the same flow, and once we mention that, it’s all good."

Still, Ross says he understands this type of incident can happen in the industry.

"You know certain things will occur," he says. "That’s just the nature of the game. There’s going to be dust kicked up at every arena, and you should all expect that. But at the same time, we’re focused on what we came for." 

Earlier this month, Meek Mill called Wale a "cornball" and criticized him via Twitter for not supporting his projects. Wale responded with a message on Instagram denying allegations that he doesn't support his fellow MMG member

During the interview with Bullett, Ross also says he's on the look out for several artists, including K Kutta, Iceberg and Troy Ave. He also says there's a chance he will start his own clothing line. In the piece, he also reveals what he's got coming up next.

"We just finished writing our first film," he says. "We’re still in the final works. We haven’t released the title or nothing like that, but I want to begin production and filming before the year’s out, so maybe as early as next summer we can do something."

Chris Brown's Rihanna Relationship Addressed By Tearful Karrueche Tran

Karrueche Tran explains why it was heartbreaking to see Chris Brown and Rihanna reunite.

Model Karrueche Tran, who has been romantically linked to Chris Brown, recently addressed the singer's relationship with Rihanna.

"Just keeping a level head and positivity," Tran says in an interview with Just Keke. "I've never dated a celebrity before so it was very new to me. Paparazzi and all that. And then, even the situation with Rihanna...People tuned into this so much was because it's relatable. I have girlfriends, I have family who's gone through the same situation. It's the case of the ex. We all go through it. However, in this case, my boyfriend is a celebrity whose ex-girlfriend is an even bigger...So not only am I fighting a battle with her, I'm fighting about it with her 14 million fans." 

Tran says the most difficult part of her relationship with Brown has been "the heartbreak." When speaking about this, the model becomes tearful. The interview excerpt is below. 

In 2009, Chris Brown assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna. Eventually, the two reconciled. In 2012, Rihanna said the pair would likely always love one another. Last year, Brown acknowledged that he and Rihanna reunited, but also confirmed they had broken up soon after.

“This is a major musical event that belongs on HBO,” said HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. “It’s going to be a night to remember.”

The cable network has featured both artists before. Beyonce: X10 is currently running on the channel. The ten-part music series features segments from Bey’s “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.”

The “Drunk In Love” singer also debuted her Life Is But A Dream documentary on HBO in 2013. That same year Jay premiered his Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film via the network as well.

Bessie also stars Michael K. Williams, Mo’Nique, Khandi Alexander, Charles S. Dutton, and Oliver Platt. It is currently being filmed in Atlanta with director Dee Rees (Pariah, Eventual Salvation) at the helm.

Drake, Chris Brown Reportedly Reconcile, Pictured In Studio

Drake and Chris Brown have reportedly set differences aside.

Drake and Chris Brown have reportedly reconciled. The news comes from a Billboard report and the release of a video featuring Chris Brown and Drake in a recording studio

Billboard reports that Brown and Drake have reconciled citing a Chris Brown Facebook post. According to Billboard, Brown updated his Facebook account recently, saying, “Hangin' with Drake in the studio.”

This coincides with the release of a video featuring Chris Brown in the studio with Drake, one published today (October 3) by Room 187's YouTube channel, as per The video, which features the two artists seemingly at peace, can be viewed below, though it is unclear when the footage was filmed. The footage also features Justin Bieber, who does not appear to have the tattoos he has donned in recent months. The video also features "Forever" as the main track of the clip. "Forever" was released in 2008.

Chris Brown and Drake have had a tumultuous relationship in recent years. In 2012, the two were reportedly involved in a brawl. The two eventually sued one another as a result of their reported nightclub scuffle. In April, Drake dissed Chris Brown in an interview. He also said that he was not interested in battling Chris Brown at the time because he felt no one would be interested in that match-up.

“His insecurities are the reason I make better music than him,” added Drizzy.

"It's not me and Kendrick [Lamar]," Drake said. "It's not me and [Jay Z]. You're not gonna get anything out of it. I don't want to hear that man rap. No one wants to hear me rap against him. I really do this shit. You're not even going to get anything out of it."

In March, Chris Brown spoke about Drake on Jeezy's "R.I.P." remix.  

"Dearly departed, I bought a plane I departed," Chris Brown says on the track. "And if you started from the bottom, go on and come out the closet."

The line was a reference to Drake's single, "Started From The Bottom" off the Ontario rapper's new release, Nothing Was The Same.


(October 3, 2013)

UPDATE: A new report has been published that says Drake and Chris Brown have allegedly reconciled, a report printed by Rap Radar

Beyond this, the duo has also reportedly hit the studio recently. Drake and Brown were photographed next to one another in a studio, an image that is below via RR. It is unclear when the image was taken, but RR's report was published today (July 11).

Kanye West Rant Setlist Revealed In Funny Or Die Parody

Kanye West's rants are parodied by Funny Or Die as the site publishes a setlist that includes a "17 minute rant about why I'm mad at Louis Vuitton right now."

Kanye West's rants are the subject of a recent Funny Or Die parody piece.

The comedic site published a parody setlist said to be for a Kanye West show. The setlist features two songs followed by a "17 minute rant about why I'm mad at Louis Vuitton right now." The setlist continues with "Good Life" before moving on to a "20 minute rant about how I invented the concept of leather sweatpants." 

The setlist continues with variations of the above, all leading up to "BIG RANT," which includes more rants. Finally, the setlist ends with "Fart into microphone and talk for 20 minutes about how good it smells."

Kanye West's rants have gained attention throughout the rapper's Yeezus Tour sets, as well as the emcee's various festival performances. 

Kanye West recently made headlines with rants during his Wireless Festival performances. During one of his sets at the festival, West said the following: 

“How many people wanna contribute something to the world? I know ya’ll might have seen some of my interviews and seen me on TV, but what I was saying the whole time is—I’m not particularly angry or anything like that—they taking the idea of celebrity and trying to make me seem like I’m stupid or something. You know, when I take these meetings and shit people will talk to you like you stupid or something...I’m not gonna call no names out, I’m not gonna mention Nike or nothing like that. I’m not gonna say no names or anything. But if you a creative and you wanna create and you just wanna create more this is exactly what I’ve been fighting for. So, if you hear me talking about Louis Vuitton or the Gucci Group or anything like that, I’m not dissing Louis Vuitton. I’m not dissing the Gucci Group and shit. I’m just saying don’t discriminate against me because I’m a Black man or because I’m a celebrity and tell me I can’t create. You know damn well no Black guys or celebrities making Louis Vuitton nothing. They let Pharrell make those glasses, and we liked’em right? They let me make those shoes and we liked’em right? They said, ‘No, no, no nigga. Not no more. That’s too much.’”

The parody setlist is as follows:

LeBron James Confirms Cleveland Cavaliers Return

Freddie Gibbs, Q-Tip and N.O.R.E. are among artists who've reacted to LeBron James' return to Cleveland.

LeBron James, who played the first seven of his 11 seasons in the NBA with the Cleveland Caveliers before moving to win two championships in four years with the Miami Heat, says he's returning to his original team. 

"Before anyone ever cared where I would play basketball, I was a kid from Northeast Ohio," LeBron James says in a letter written on Sports Illustrated. "It’s where I walked. It’s where I ran. It’s where I cried. It’s where I bled. It holds a special place in my heart. People there have seen me grow up. I sometimes feel like I’m their son. Their passion can be overwhelming. But it drives me. I want to give them hope when I can. I want to inspire them when I can. My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now."

L.A. Bloods Set Reportedly Co-Signs Chris Brown
Last week

Chris Brown was caught apparently throwing up gang signs at a club in Los Angeles. Reports later connected Brown’s hand motions to Compton’s Fruit Town Piru Bloods set.

[ALSO READ: Hip Hop Rumors: Chris Brown Caught Throwing Up Gang Signs]

TMZ reportedly spoke with Piru members to get more information about the R&B singer’s association with the gang. While the site reports Brown has not been officially initiated, he has been accepted as an affiliate.

The connection between the Bloods and Brown is not because the “Loyal” performer supports or takes part any in criminal or gang related activity. It is his charitable work and community support that the set appreciates.

According to TMZ, Brown gets the Fruit Town co-sign because:

- He’s hired several of them to work for him … giving their Compton community an economic boost
- Chris comes to the hood and hangs out with them
- He shot a music video in the neighborhood … and even included some of them in the vid
- He donated a thousand pairs of new shoes to Compton kids

"I just wanted to come out and participate and bring my help to the families and everybody that took a loss in this situation," Meek Mill says, "'cause I be feeling like nine times out of 10 they never really use us in a way that it could benefit the community, so you know I come out and use myself.

"Only time I'm really on the news or on the radio it's something about probation,” he continues. "I feel like I'm in a position [where] I could be able to help these people so easily, get donations and get things they need to help them with their losses right now so you know I'm gonna do it."

The amount of Meek Mill’s donation has not been publicized.

Jay Z, DMX, Public Enemy Albums Among Def Jam's "Most Notable Albums"

Green Label has compiled a list of "30 Years Of Def Jam: The Label's 10 Most Notable Albums."

Launched in the mid-1980s, Def Jam Recordings is one of the most revered imprints in Rap history. 

"Responsible for everyone from Kanye West and Rick Ross to Ja Rule and The Roots, Def Jam continues to keep us partying while occasionally thinking,” the Green Label story says. "Its cherished back catalog ranges from the politically charged energy of Public Enemy’s It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back to The Blueprint by Jay Z, which is considered to be one of the best in the rapper’s long discography.”

In addition to those Public Enemy and Jay Z albums, the article also names Slick Rick’s The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick as one of Def Jam’s “10 Most Notable Albums.”

"Full of zany humor, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick found him taking a royal approach, and commanding respect due to his gaudy jewelry and lyrical prowess,” the article says. "One of the golden age’s most respected orators, songs like 'Mona Lisa,' 'Teenage Love,' 'Children’s Story,' and 'Hey Young World' are still held in high esteem and recited verbatim.”

Beyonce’s Father Hit With Second Paternity Suit In Four Years
While Beyonce was Destiny’s Child, her father may have been flirting with disaster. Yesterday (July 7th) reports surfaced involving former lingerie model TaQoya Branscomb alleging Matthew Knowles fathered a child with her back in 2010.

The current 30 year old real estate agent Branscomb claims Knowles fathered her daughter whom lives in Harris County, Texas. Branscomb is filing a paternity suit against Knowles in Texas. Branscomb is requesting a DNA test, child support and for financial compensation for lawyer fees.

This is the second paternity suit Knowles has incurred in the past four years. In 2010, Knowles admitted to fathering  Alexsandra Wright’s son and in 2013 was ordered to pay child support to her.

Solange Breaks Her Silence

FINALLY! We get insight on why the elevator beatdown took place….SIKE.

PageSix reports:

“In an interview with Lucky Magazine, Beyoncé’s singer sister glosses over her infamous elevator beatdown of brother-in-law Jay Z, calling the shocking showdown “that thing.”


“What’s important is that my family and I are all good,” said Solange, who got dolled up in ’60s chic for the mag’s August issue. “What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.””

Sighs. From the looks of things we’ll never get any answers, at least not the ones we want. If only the tape had audio…#inaperfectworld.

Jay-Z And Beyonce Cut All Ties From Ye and Kim

Ok, so maybe Jay and Ye aren’t as close as they were, but is it because of Yeezy’s choice of who he decided to wife up?

OK! Magazine claims sources are saying that hip-hop’s favorite couple is fed up with having any ties with the newlyweds.

“An insider tells OK! that Jay Z and Beyonce have ceased all contact with pal Kanye West and his bride Kim Kardashian, who had spent the last two years pushing to get closer to the stars.

“When the rappers were on tour, Beyonce was forced to sit with Kim at shows and hang with her after, and she put up with it through gritted teeth,” says the source.

Now the newlyweds have even been spending more time at their New York apartment, just two blocks away from Jay and Beyonce’s home there, in a bid to get North to Bond with Blue Ivy. However, the insider says the superstars are fed up with being associated with the Kardashian brand.

“Bey and Jay feel like they’ve been dragged through the mud with all the drama surrounding their absence at the Kimye wedding,” says the source, adding that Jay has actually been moving away from his former BFF for some time. “Jay made it clear to Kanye that he doesn’t approve of the choices hes making in his personal life and it will end in disaster for his career.””

Lil Wayne's Young Money Sued, Risks Losing Website Domain Name

Lil Wayne is being sued by the business that sold his company the domain name for

Lil Wayne's Young Money is being sued, according to TMZ.

The lawsuit claims that the company that owned, a business meant to help young entrepreneurs manage and make money, existed before there was a Young Money imprint. They reportedly sold the domain name to the Rap label. 

They sold the domain name in 2011 for $600,000. At the time, their sale also stipulated that if Young Money didn't make payments on time, the imprint would forfeit and the domain name would return to the seller. Lil Wayne's Young Money reportedly still owes $250,000 and has disregarded its obligation to pay, according to the report. The sellers are now suing for the domain name. 

Young Money has yet to comment on the lawsuit. 

Young Money released Rise Of An Empire earlier this year, a compilation project that features appearances from Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake. "This compilation is a very special release for the label," Young Money Entertainment Chief Operating Officer [COO] Cortez Bryant said of the effort when it was released. "We Are Young Money helped launch the careers of our first generation of acts with Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga. Even though we've been honored with accolades as a company, our hunger hasn't diminished or dwindled. We're hungrier than ever, and we're still building. That goes hand-in-hand with the title Young Money: Rise Of An Empire. We're not going anywhere. We don't plan on stopping—ever. Our goal is the expansion of this Empire with the next generation of kings and queens ruling."

XXL Lists "The 25 Most Anticipated Albums For The Rest Of 2014"

XXL picks albums by 50 Cent, Common, G-Unit, Lil Wayne and Kendrick Lamar on this list.

XXL has published a list titled "The 25 Most Anticipated Albums For The Rest Of 2014."

50 Cent makes the list with Street King Immortal. The effort, set to be released in September, is slated to be the rapper's second album this year, following Animal Ambition.

"50 surprised everybody by announcing that Animal Ambition would be an album, and then released every record on the project before it even came out and still debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200," XXL says. "He’s been absolutely everywhere in the past few months, and with a G-Unit album set to be on the way in November, he doesn’t look to be going anywhere any time soon. As for what that means for Street King Immortal, it’s hard to tell, but if he can produce more gems like 'Hold On' and 'Pilot,' Fif might really be all the way back." 

Beyond the 50 Cent album, XXL also lists Action Bronson's Mr. Wonderful, G-Unit's upcoming album which does not have a name, Kendrick Lamar's sophomore effort which also doesn't have a title and Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V.

Common's Nobody's Smiling also makes the list, a project the rapper recently discussed. 

"That's why I'm making Nobody's Smiling," Com said during a recent interview. "That's why it's not just the music, but the movement of the fact that I'm not happy. I'm from Chicago. I'm not happy we losing people... people getting shot over things that ain't even necessary. I can't even act like I know every situation, why it happens, but some of it... it's become part of... a way of life. People don't value life as much as we can, as much as we should. When I hear about people dying it's just like man, what do I have to do to change it. There's people out in the field right now doing grassroots movements that work everyday towards stopping violence in Chicago and all around the country but I'm like, 'This is where I'm from, I've been blessed enough to chase my dream, go after my dream and I want to provide the same for people where I come from."
