The Reason Why Kanye Doesn’t Smile

When's the least time you saw Kanye West smile? College Dropout days? Jk.

But its very rare to catch the oh-so-serious rapper cracking even a small grin these days.

Kanye detailed why he doesn't smile during a speech at the Daily Front Row's inaugural Fashion Los Angeles Awards.

E! News reports:

""Back when I was working on Yeezus, I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything," West said. "I looked at all these people's photos and they look so real and their outfits were incredible and they weren't smiling and people, you know the paparazzi, always come up to me, 'Why you not smiling?' and I think, not smiling makes me smile…When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling cause it just wouldn't look as cool.""

So there you have it. Kim isn't making him so unhappy that he can't bare to smile.

Did Lil Wayne & Young Thug Send Subliminal Shots At Each Other?

Ever since Lil Wayne went on his Twitter tirade expressing his desire to part ways from longtime label home

Cash Money, speculation that Birdman's new-found business relationship with Young Thug may have played a part in the dissension at YMCMB. Recent social media posts from Weezy and Thugger seem to suggest the two may be sending subliminal shots at each other during the Cash Money-Wayne rift.

Thug posted a video on his Instagram page revealing he and Birdman would be partying at Miami's LIV nightclub. The vid ended with the Atlanta rapper saying, "If you ain't at LIV n***a, you ain't living… We going to LIV. Whoever don't like it pull up, f**k n***a."

Birdman repeated Thug's "pull up" statement on his own IG post. He uploaded the flyer for the LIV event with the caption "RG [Rich Gang] pull up n***a."

Wayne returned to Twitter to announce he would be holding a party to celebrate the release of his Sorry 4 The Wait 2 mixtape in Miami Beach. The tweet also included the Young Money leader adding, "Go to LIV for what?"

Bobby Shmurda Has Gun Charge Dismissed

The 20-year old rapper still faces charges brought against him and 14 other GS9 members.

The Brooklyn District Attorney's office has announced that a gun case involving Bobby Shmurda will be dismissed in the coming weeks, according to Revolt.

Shmurda remains incarcerated at Rikers Island in New York after being arrested last month following an investigation by the NYPD and special Narcotics Gang Unit. The Brooklyn case set to be dismissed by the Brooklyn D.A. alleged that Shmurda, whose given name is Ackquille Pollard, fired a gun at a crowd of people near a barber shop.

Shmurda still faces the charges levied against him and his fellow GS9 members which include gun possession, murder, and conspiracy. The 20-year old rapper is currently being held on $2 million bail.

The rapper's lawyer, Howard Greenberg, also told Revolt that Shmurda is set for his upcoming trial date later this month.

"Brooklyn is done and now it's on to Manhattan, where we need to teach these adversaries a lesson," he said.

Greenberg also denied rumors that Shmurda was recently released on bail and separately that he had been critically injured in a jail brawl.

"Bullshit," Greenberg said. "Saw him yesterday (January 20) in court. He looked fantastic."

In a separate statement, Greenberg recently told XXL about upcoming plans for Shmurda's defense.

"The intermediate plan is if there is a superseding indictment on the 29th is to enter a plea of not guilty," he said. "The long term plan is to kick some ass and take no prisoners."

Drake’s Dad Moves Forward With Rap Plans

This is interesting to say the least, but Drake's Pop is continuing plans for a musical project. The only thing is Drake is not going to be a part of it. Now, that's not good for business when your son is one of the top artists in the world. Anyway, Mr. Dennis Graham is not letting that stop him and has found a new classy lady to help push his project.

UPDATE: Drake Leaves Pops Hanging, Dennis Graham Finds Female Rap Rookie

Here is Ze Monroe on some project with Yung Blac.

And here is a previous report:

Well, Graham tells TMZ he found his woman in rookie rapper Ze Monroe, and she's going to rhyme on his new song, "Kinda Crazy." The original plan was for Drake to guest star too, but he couldn't fit studio time into his schedule … but DG says there are no hard feelings. As for future family collabs? Dennis, who's in his early 60s, says he was asked to do a club gig near Coachella — where Drake's headlining — but adds he's not sure he can stay up that late.

Lil Wayne Will Reportedly Sue Birdman For $8 Million

Weezy will ask a judge to free him from Cash Money Records and Birdman's control, TMZ reports.

A day after it was reported that Birdman was frustrated with Lil Wayne, following the choice words used by the New Orleans rapper on the opening track of his Sorry For The Wait 2 mixtape, new reports are stating that Lil Wayne is claiming Birdman owes him $8 million as an advance for his last album.

It's unclear which album Lil Wayne is referring to, however according to new reports by TMZ, settlement talks between the two rappers have broken down and Lil Wayne is now preparing to sue Birdman Sr.

"The 2 titans tried coming to terms this week but it wasn't meant to be," the TMZ article says. "Now Wayne will ask a judge to declare him free of Cash Money and Birdman's control. Wayne says Birdman has violated their contract by withholding the release of his new album."

The report also adds that "Wayne will keep recording but he will release his works outside of the Cash Money umbrella."

This past Thursday (January 22) it was reported by TMZ that Birdman was angry with Lil Wayne for the string of references made on Sorry For The Wait 2's opening track, a remix of O.T. Genasis' "CoCo."

"Our sources say Birdman is angry on 2 fronts … that Wayne is trying to bail on a binding contract and even more personal, he's putting their relationship on blast," TMZ sources say.

Iggy Azalea Felt Hip Hop Lacked "Characters" Like Her

Iggy Azalea speaks on sparking a change in what's accepted in Hip Hop, during interview with GQ magazine.

Whether her music career lasts for a few years or until she's in her thirties, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea recently revealed that she has "sparked a change" in what is accepted in Hip Hop.

Iggy, who says she hopes for a lengthy career, spoke on the matter during a newly-released interview with GQ magazine.

"You never know how long you'll be in people's good graces, especially in this business," Iggy said, when asked what she wants her legacy to be. "So I hope it's long—but I could be here for three or four years and then be out, like most artists. So it depends. I might be here for a long time. At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change—that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop. And if I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35, that would be great."

After being accused of appropriating black culture by artists like Azealia Banks, Iggy was asked how she copes with criticism. According to the Australian musician, being nominated during award season helps her bite her tongue when it concerns criticism from fellow artists.

Azalea later declared that when she listened to Hip Hop growing up there weren't "enough characters" that represented her situation.

"Uh, awards season helps," she said. "Anytime where people get to choose who they want to have a voice and they choose me, I just think that makes it worth it. And that gives me the patience to just bite my tongue. When people choose me as the person they think should be speaking for them, I think, Well, I don't really care what someone in the industry or another artist has to say about it. Your opinion is biased anyway, because you want people to listen to your voice. So having actual people who choose me, it makes me think, I have a place, and I don't care what other people have to say about it. I was a fan of rap music growing up, and I didn't feel like there were enough characters that represented me and my situation. So I think it's needed."

Birdman Said To Be Pissed About Lil Wayne’s “Sorry 4 The Wait 2″

Lil Wayne released his new mixtape Sorry 4 The Wait 2 this week, and the New Orleans native used the project to throw a few shots at his current

record label. On the tape's first track – a remix to O.T. Genasis' "Coco," – Wayne further expressed his frustrations with his longtime label home.

[ALSO READ: Lil Wayne – Sorry 4 The Wait 2]

"Now I don't want no problems, I just want my money," Wayne rapped at one point on the song. He continued, "All I got is Young Money, no more Cash, n***a."

Later on the a separate track "Sh*t," Weezy spit, "Did my time at Cash Money. Time served and released, but this agent ain't free."

According to TMZ, Cash Money boss Bryan "Birdman" Williams is not pleased that his "son" chose to air out his frustrations on a record. The sites reports:

Our sources say Birdman is angry on 2 fronts … that Wayne is trying to bail on a binding contract and even more personal, he's putting their relationship on blast.

Apparently, Birdman is still unwilling to release Wayne from his contract at Cash Money without a legal fight, and the rapper's long-awaited Tha Carter V album will only be available on the label's terms.

Cosby’s TV Son Malcolm Jamal Warner Comments On Sexual Allegations

Actor Malcolm Jamal Warner has

finally commented on the drama that his TV dad has been going since 35 women accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

Warner, who was on "The Cosby Show" since its inception in the 80's, could not speak directly to the allegations, but said he considered Cosby a "friend and mentor."

"He's one of my mentors, and he's been very influential and played a big role in my life as a friend and mentor," Warner told Billboard. "Just as it's painful to hear any woman talk about sexual assault, whether true or not, it's just as painful to watch my friend and mentor go through this.

He continued, like Phylicia Rashad before him, to stress the importance of the vast entertainment legacy of his friend.

"I can't really speak on any of the allegations because obviously, I was not there. The Bill Cosby I know has been great to me and great for a lot of people. What he's done for comedy and television has been legendary and history-making" Warner said. "What he's done for the black community and education has been invaluable. That's the Bill Cosby I know. I can't speak on the other stuff."

Rreviously, Rashad had said that she felt there were other forces that were bent on destroying the legacy of "The Cosby Show," which showed an exceptional view of Black family life.

Another Cosby kid – Keshia Knight Pulliam – said, "Unfortunately, in the court of public opinion, everyone has formed their opinion, but we're still in America and you're innocent until proven guilty of any crimes," she said on the Today show.

Iggy Azalea Says She Changed The Hip Hop Game

After all the Iggy controversy, she finally sits with GQ magazine to talk about all the harsh words said to her after the Azealia Banks interview with Ebro, Rosenberg and Laura Stylez. Azealia vocally expressed she was not a fan of Iggy's pop rap, which sent social media haywire. This also includes a hip hop lesson from Qtip on twitter about the history of hiphop and why it means so much to hip hop artist.

GQ asked her a few questions about dealing with all the controversy.

Via GQ:

People say some harsh things about you. What helps you bear up under that?
Uh, awards season helps. Anytime where people get to choose who they want to have a voice and they choose me, I just think that makes it worth it. And that gives me the patience to just bite my tongue. When people choose me as the person they think should be speaking for them, I think, Well, I don't really care what someone in the industry or another artist has to say about it. Your opinion is biased anyway, because you want people to listen to your voice. So having actual people who choose me, it makes me think, I have a place, and I don't care what other people have to say about it. I was a fan of rap music growing up, and I didn't feel like there were enough characters that represented me and my situation. So I think it's needed.

Fast-forward to the end of your career. What do you want your legacy to be?
You never know how long you'll be in people's good graces, especially in this business. So I hope it's long—but I could be here for three or four years and then be out, like most artists. So it depends. I might be here for a long time. At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change—that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop.

Lil Wayne Disses Cash Money On "Sorry For The Wait 2"

"Cash Money is an army, I'm a one man army," Lil Wayne raps, "And if them niggas comin' for me, I'm goin' out like Tony."

With the release of his latest mixtape meant to tide fans over during the delay of his Carter V album, Lil Wayne takes the first few moments of his new Sorry For The Wait 2 project to confirm his riff with Cash Money Records and diss the label outright.

On the mixtape's first track, a remix of O.T. Genasis' "CoCo," Wayne claims responsibility for Cash Money's ongoing success and alludes to the label throughout: "Tha Carter gon' be late so I cooked up a tape," he says in the intro, "The garden's full of snakes so I had to escape."

"Who kept this shit together? Nigga, me, that's who," he raps in the opening bars, "Who was there when niggas left? Nigga, me, that's who / Cash Money is an army, I'm a one man army / And if them niggas comin' for me, I'm goin' out like Tony."

"Now I don't want no problems, I just want my money," he adds in the verse before referencing his alienation from the label: "Birdman Jr., more like Ugly Duckling."

Earlier in the song, Wayne references his ties to his own Young Money stars Drake and Nicki Minaj before announcing his departure from the label, saying, "I ain't trippin', I got Barbie, I got Drake too," and then later, "All I got is Young Money, no more Cash, nigga."

Wayne also seems to reference his longtime mentor Baby as the source of his issues at the label: "It's compensation over conversation / Lord I must got blurry vision, a nigga's got two faces," he raps.

On the mixtape's second track, "Sh!t," Lil Wayne also makes mention of his ongoing feud with Cash Money: "Did my time in Cash Money, time served and released," he raps, "But this agent ain't free, word, that's the word on these streets / But that shit is old news, that shit is so yesterweek."

TLC Starts A Kickstarter Campaign To Fund Their Final Album

Instead of looking to a record label for financial backing of their final album, TLC is reaching out to their fans. T-Boz and Chilli have started a Kickstarter campaign to welcome donations from their fans to fund their next project.

On their Kickstarter page, the duo stated they want to have creative control over this album and that it's important that their fans are hands on for this final LP.

"While major labels offer artists multimillion dollar recording and marketing budgets, they don't often give artists complete control of their own music," they wrote on their Kickstarter page. It is ESSENTIAL that we create our final album completely on our own terms, without any restrictions, with YOU."

Their goal is to raise $150,000 to pay for their recording sessions with their producers and engineer, booking producers, mixing sessions and more. Donations start at $5, but the bigger the donation the bigger the perk for the fan.

"We will send ALL BACKERS who pledge $5 or MORE a list of tracks we want to remix," T-Boz and Chilli wrote. YOU will vote on your favorite, and the track with the most votes will be included on the album!!"

The two are looking to enlist their key members from their original hit making team for the album, including singer/songwriter turned reality star Kandi Burruss.

Whitney Houston’s Family Slams Recent Lifetime Biopic

Coming on the heels of the universally panned Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, Lifetime admittedly did a far better job of portraying iconic singer Whitney Houston in their recent unauthorized biopic. Focusing primarily on her relationship with troubled bad boy Bobby Brown over the course of five years, it also sought to clear the air on their alleged drug use, showing Houston as the one who first introduced Brown to cocaine.


Though Angela Bassett received praise for her TV directorial debut, Houston's family stood against the project; resulting in Deborah Cox being brought in to provide the vocals as Houston's voice was not allowed to be used.

In a statement penned by her sister-in-law Pat Houston: "If you watch this movie, watch it knowing that Lifetime is notorious for making bad biopics of deceased celebrities and brace yourself for the worst. You should not be surprised that someone decided to do a made for TV biopic. And, I might add, without the family's blessing and despite her mother's request to not do this movie. It happens every day."

Nick Cannon files for divorce from Mariah Carey: report

Turns out, Nick Cannon will not always be Mariah Carey's baby.

The 34-year-old "America's Got Talent" host was reportedly the first one to file for divorce, ahead of his estranged wife on Dec. 12, according to TMZ.

The 44-year-old diva made headlines just one week before Cannon's reported filing when she showed up late to tape a segment for the Rockafeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting on Dec. 3.

She later took to Twitter to apologize for her tardiness.

"Last night's situation was beyond my control. I apologize to all that showed up, you know that I would never want to disappoint you," Carey wrote to her 15 million followers.

"You've kept me here, in your hearts, and I keep you in mine always. We are #lambily! #ThereForMe. I will be opening tonight's live show in Rockefeller center with "All I Want For Christmas Is You"!!!!"

Unfortunately for Carey, her day didn't get any better when she finally did take the stage.

The songstress was unable to reach some of her infamous high notes while singing Christmas classic, "All I Want for Christmas is You," which sparked massive criticism via social media following the rocky performance.

The terms of Cannon and Carey's divorce are not yet known, but the pair share 3-year-old twins together, Moroccan and Monroe.

They tied the knot in April 2008 and rumblings of their split began this past summer.

"We have been living in separate houses for a few months," Cannon told The Insider in August.

"(Right now) my main focus is my kids."

Carey revealed Thursday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that she she is heading to Las Vegas for a residency at Caesars Palace.

Cannon will allegedly not be benifting from the profits of her latest gig, TMZ added.

A rep for the starlet declined to comment on Mariah's personal life.

Florida Police Caught Using African-American Mugshots As Target Practice

A North Miami Beach police department is under fire, after being caught using criminal mugshots for target practice at a gun range often used for officer training. In an unbelievable coincidence, during a December visit to the range Sgt. Valerie Deant discovered that not only were the mugshots of minority offenders being used, one of the photos posted was that of her own brother, who had been arrested over 15 years ago in connection with a drag race.

Said Deant, "I was like why is my brother being used for target practice? There were like gunshots there and I cried a couple of times."

According to the Medley Firearms Training Center, the venue is often leased to local law enforcement agencies, who are allowed to choose their own target photos.

Though many are outraged at the racial implications of the act, North Miami Beach Police Chief J. Scott Dennis has denied that race played a part stating "Our policies were not violated. There is no discipline forthcoming from the individuals who were involved with this."

The singer's probation has been revoked after he traveled without permission for a performance last weekend.

Chris Brown had his probation revoked for traveling without approval and failing to complete required community service on schedule by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge earlier today (January 15), according to the Associated Press. Despite the ruling, Brown has been allowed to remain free for the time being. The singer was originally sentenced to five years of probation in 2009 after pleading guilty to felony assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna.

The singer's probation terms prohibit him from leaving Los Angeles County as of a recent order from probation officials last month. Brown was in violation of the order when he travelled to San Jose on Sunday (January 11) for a performance that ended after five concertgoers were shot at the venue and later hospitalized. Brown's defense attorney took the blame for the violation and told the judge "that his office incorrectly advised Brown that he didn't need permission to travel for the show."

A report filed by Brown's probation officer outlines his recent progress but also mentions concern for the safety of his performances, citing another of the singer's concerts last year that also featured unexpected gunshots.

"Though he has shown the ability to be compliant during long stretches of his probation grant, (Brown) continues a pattern of making choices that are counterproductive in his ability to be successful on probation," the singer's probation officer wrote. "There is also concern that when he performs or attends at (sic) some of his public events, people will get shot or seriously injured."

Separately, as a part of his original sentence, Brown was ordered to complete his mandated 1,000 hours of community service by the end of this month but has as many as 200 hours left according to the judge. Still, the judge noted Brown's "steady progress" on that aspect of his probation.

The latest incident is Brown's third probationary slip up since 2013. That year he was charged with a hit-and-run after an accident though the charge was later dismissed. Later in 2013 Brown was charged with misdemeanor assault after hitting a man in Washington, D.C. The same judge ordered Brown to attend a rehab center following the charge but he was expelled from the program last March.

Brown will face the judge again for a formal probation hearing on March 20.

Bill Cosby Under Fire Again After New Accuser Files Charges

Though many have argued that the accusations that Bill Cosby is currently facing occurred too long ago to establish concrete evidence, new accuser Chloe Goins has officially filed charges for an incident that she claims happened in 2008 at the Playboy Mansion. According to Goins, she was drugged and sexually assaulted by the fallen comedian and is now looking for her day in court.


After formally filing charges with the LAPD her lawyer advised "Ms. Goins is now determined to accomplish what so many other victims no longer have the opportunity to do— to be the girl that puts Mr. Cosby behind bars, where he belongs. Ms. Goins is here today to seek justice…She fully understands and accepts the immense responsibility that her decision to be here today carries.

The statement continued, "Apparently, Mr. Cosby feels brazen and confident enough in his actions to make jokes in his recent comedy shows about the 25 plus women that have been brave enough to come out and tell their stories of what he did to them." Her lawyer added, "Ms. Goins is certainly not joking…Mr. Cosby should and will be held accountable."

Indianapolis Colts Player Josh McNary Has Been Charged With Rape

Just days before their AFC Championship game, Indianapolis Colts player Josh McNary has been reportedly charged with rape, criminal confinement with bodily injury and battery resulting in bodily injury.

A 29-year-old woman accused an unknown man of sexually assaulting her on Dec. 1st. Police officials determined that McNary was a suspect after investigating a cell phone the woman said she took from her attacker's apartment.

The woman, whose identity has not been revealed, picked McNary out of a lineup of photos and said he looked familiar but could not say he was the culprit for sure. She claims that she and her attacker got into a physical altercation where she scratched his face, back, neck and shoulders before she was allegedly sexually assaulted.

McNary's lawyer, Ed Schrager, said that he denies the allegations but turned himself in to law enforcement officials in a "respectful and peaceful manner."

"The charges and affidavit publicly disseminated on Wednesday afternoon are not evidence of wrong doing but simply one side's story," Schrager said in a statement. "Joshua has full and confidence in the American way, including its justice system, which he pledged to protect and defend as a West Point graduate and lieutenant in the United States Army."

When McNary's home was investigated by police, he reportedly told them "I know why you're here" and had evidence of his own preserved for the police.

The Colts have also issued a statement saying they cannot give their thoughts on the situation due to not knowing many details.

"Unfortunately that's the limit of our knowledge," said the team, who have a 13-5 standing. "At this time we are very concerned and trying to find out what the relevant facts are, but we have insufficient information to venture any opinion. As we learn more we will make appropriate updates."

The Indianapolis Colts play the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game on Sunday, Jan. 19th.

Tupac Shakur Biopic To Start Filming In June

Randall Emmett, one of the producers of the Tupac biopic, says the film has been granted the rights to use Tupac's music.

A number of details about the upcoming biopic on Tupac Shakur were revealed during movie news site Collider's interview with Randall Emmett, one of the producers of the film. During his interview, Emmett confirmed that filming for the biopic is slated to begin in June.

The producer, who has also played a role in the film End Of Watch and the television show "Power," revealed that the biopic has been granted the rights to use music from Tupac in the film due to Morgan Creek Production's deal with the estate of the late rapper.

"That project is being put together for a June start date," Randall Emmett said in a video posted on "And we're still with Morgan Creek. And we're financing with them. Open Road is our U.S. distributor still for domestic. And the script is great. And we're ready to make the movie. And we're just figuring out—just prepping the logistics…Morgan Creek bought the rights to the music and we share 50 percent of the rights with Morgan Creek. So, Morgan Creek acquired all the music rights from the estate when they partnered with Tupac's mother."

In regards to what fans can expect from the film, Emmett says Tupac's early years will be represented as well as the pivotal years of his music career. He added that the West Coast versus East Coast rivalry may also be touched on in the biopic.

"I think that our story like a lot of biopics especially in the Hip Hop space will start at the beginning of his life," he said. "Kinda set up his beginnings and the people around him. And then go into kind of the key years leading up to the pinnacle of his success. Those three or four key years of his rise."

VH1 Cancels Sorority Sisters – Sort Of

It seems like VH1 is quietly killing their controversial show "Sorority Sisters."

The Atlanta Journal Constitution outlined the fiendish plot:

How badly does VH1 want to put this show into the grave? The final episode will start at the odd time of 11:10 p.m. and end just past midnight. Plus, it's not even being repeated later that night for West Coast consumption. And Friday tends to be a relatively low TV consumption night.

Some of the show's stars were suspended or expelled from their respective sororities as well.

On top of it all, advertisers had complained as well as a social media movement of African Americans and Greek letter organizations that demanded the show be cancelled.

It would seem they have gotten their wish.

2 Chainz & Nancy Grace Debate Marijuana Legislation

2 Chainz and Nancy Grace spar over the case of Michael Blevins, a 19-year old Ohio man who was caught videotaping himself forcing his 18-month old niece to smoke weed.

Atlanta, Georgia emcee, 2 Chainz debated marijuana legalization on Nancy Grace tonight (January 13) on HLN. During a snippet released, the talk show host used the case of Melvin Blevins as an example of why marijuana is a dangerous drug. The case involves a 19-year old man who videotaped himself forcing his 18-month old niece to smoke weed. A pawn shop clerk found the tape inside of a camera that Blevins pawned.

"I got something for you, Nancy," 2 Chainz said in response. "I'm from the urban community. I'm from the inner city and pawn shops are associated with a drug known as crack. Most of the time when people pawn things it's not to buy a sack of marijuana. It's to feed a high that's much more strenuous than a drug such as weed. I feel like that person had a problem that's probably deeper than weed. Maybe they was high on crack when they were doing that footage right there."

In her rebuttal, Grace asserted that she "...knows they were high on weed" because of the video evidence recovered. 2 Chainz responded with "I know crack, too," before comparing the legalization of marijuana to the legalization of alcohol.

"It's the same thing we talked about earlier, darling, with the legalization of alcohol," he said. "You'll find some footage like this but everyone is not doing this. Some people actually love their child. Some people know that that's obviously wrong. So there's nothing to really argue about. These people are imbeciles. You can't use this case to define a whole community."

The New York Daily News reported in 2009, that Michael Blevins was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to several weapons and drug charges in Columbus, Ohio. He was also accused of being a part of marijuana-trafficking ring. A WBNS-10tv report says drug enforcement agents found 2,000 pounds of marijuana during a raid on Blevins' home.

2 Chainz is expected to release his next mixtape, Tru Jack City on January 27.

Flavor Flav Indicted For Driving With A Suspended License

Flavor Flav will appear in court later this month facing a felony charge of driving with a suspended license.

Flavor Flav has been indicted on a felony charge of driving with a suspended license stemming from a 2014 arrest, according to Billboard. The Public Enemy rapper was arrested on January 9, 2014 on the Meadowbrook Parkway in New York and is now set to appear in a Long Island courtroom later this month.

The original charges were incurred while Flavor Flav was rushing to his mother's funeral just over a year ago and include two misdemeanors for aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in addition to a speeding violation.

A lawyer for the rapper declined to comment but is reportedly looking to reach a plea deal. A spokesperson for the District Attorney for Nassau County where Flavor Flav was arrested also declined to comment but confirmed his court date to be January 21.

Safaree Samuels Says He Helped Nicki Minaj Write Her Raps

SB opens up about his relationship with Nicki Minaj on Power 105.1 "The Breakfast Club."

A very public breakup -- centered around The Pinkprint album -- has placed Nicki Minaj and her former boyfriend Safaree Samuels in a position where they're sparring with one another via social media and press appearances.

Today (January 13), Safaree stopped by Power 105.1 The Breakfast Club to speak openly about his relationship with Nicki and why things seem to have crumbled.

"That was my soulmate," he says about their once-discreet relationship. "Me and her were calling all the shots."

Safaree also explains that their relationship originated in a group they both belonged to called The Hood$tarz. When things didn't work out, Nicki decided to go solo and SB supported her.

"Every time it came to writing raps," he says, "it was me, her and the beat. It got to the point where the respect was gone. I'm the one who packed my stuff and left.

"Everyone around her works for her," he continued. "I was being treated like an employee instead of her man."

Nicki's rumored relationship with Meek Mill was brought up and DJ Envy asked Safaree if he was the one that introduced her to Meek.

"Yeah," he replies. "But if that's who she decides to move on with, it is what it is. I'm not mad. I'm not bitter. If I wanted to make it work, I could've made it work. She can take a picture with whoever she wants, she can get married tomorrow and be pregnant the next day I will wish her the best, but when you try to pull me down and discredit what I've done for you, that's what's weak to me."

Safaree emphasized to the hosts that the "respect was gone." So, when he heard the harsh lyrics on Nicki's track "Only," he says that he was numb to it.

"As far as the 'Only' song, that's something on the outside people take as disrespect," he says. "Maybe, I've been dealing with it for so long, it seemed like the norm to me. I got numb to it."

Although it appears his ex has moved on, Safaree says he's not trying to rush into a new relationship.

"I need to learn myself right now because I lost myself, so I'm trying to build myself back up," he says. "I'm getting used to being around people again."

Terminally Ill Fan Dies One Day After Surprise Visit From Eminem

The terminally ill fan that Eminem visited last weekend (Jan. 11) has reportedly died. Gage Garmo, who had a rare bone cancer called Osteosarcoma, passed away one day after Eminem granted his dying wish by visiting his home and spending time with him.

After being told he only had one week to live, Garmo's family used Twitter to help grant his last wish. They set up the hashtag #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem in hopes of catching Slim Shady's attention. When it did, Em arranged to visit the 17-year-old's Michigan home, which is about 20 minutes from where he resides, and spent about an hour talking and hanging out with him. The family told TMZ that the visit really raised Garmo's spirits.

A candlelight vigil was held at Garmo's high school, Rochester High School, in his memory.

Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports management company has added another athlete tot heir roster. Boxer Andre Ward has reportedly signed on with the company's boxing division.

"We have signed Andre Ward and it's something we're very excited about," David Itskowitch, chief operating officer of Roc Nation Sports' boxing division, told ESPN. "It's just the beginning for us but it's a game-changer. He's one of the best fighters in the world."

We'll come up with names and come up with a date but we're excited to give him the opportunity to show he's one of the best in the world."

George Zimmerman Is Arrested Again For Aggravated Assault Charges

It looks like after dodging a long sentence in jail by being acquitted of second-degree murder charges for killing 17-year old Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman can't seem to live life without getting into trouble. Last night, Florida authorities have said that Zimmerman has been arrested for aggravated assault charges.

According to Associated Press, the 31 year old was arrested last night at 10 pm in Lake Mary, and is currently held at John E. Polk Correctional facility. Zimmerman was awaiting a court appearance that was scheduled at 9 am today.

George Zimmerman has had a very checkered past after his Trayvon Martin trial. The former Sanford resident has been arrested consistently for violent situations with his former wife and girlfriend.

This dude is starting to go to jail more than gangster rappers.

Snoop Dogg Targeted For Gay Bashing

A recent Instagram post from Tha Doggfather faces criticism from a man featured in the photo.

Snoop Dogg is being accused of gay bashing because of an Instagram post the Long Beach, California rapper published featuring a man named Cortez Booze, according to a TMZ report published yesterday (January 8).

"Cortez Booze tells TMZ ... 5 days ago the rapper posted a pic of him on Instagram with the caption, 'Whose auntcle is this?' " Tmz reports. "The pic triggered a torrent of hate ... people calling him f*****, shemale, confused, ugly, punk and a host of other slurs."

Booze said he will hire a lawyer to pursue action against the LBC rapper over the Instagram post of Booze's face posted January 3.

The "auntcle" image has over 40,000 likes and a slew of comments.

Snoop was embroiled in a social media maelstrom with Grammy nominee Iggy Azalea in October in which Snoop posted a photo clowning Iggy. She said that Snoop's meme's did not reflect his character in person.

"and for the record i only had an issue with the meme in the first place because he acts another way to my face, he even follows me," Iggy Azalea wrote on Twitter on October 14)

Snoop Dogg later buried the hatchet with a call to Iggy's mentor T.I.

"Boys and girls, I just got off the phone with my homeboy Tip, the King of Atlanta and it's officially over," Snoop said in an Instagram post. "No more bad talk. I apologize. Yeah. I apologize. I'm sorry. I won't do it again."

Snoop Dogg has not taken down the Instagram post of "aunctle" Cortez Booze, nor has he commented on his desired course of legal action.

Snoop's next album, Bush, which is due out in mid March, is produced by Pharrell Williams.

"Snoop's album is better than mine," Pharrell said in an interview with Los Angeles radio station Power 106's Big Boy's Neighborhood. "It's Snoop Dogg. You're gonna bug out from the approach of what we did. We're almost done. The songs are done. Now I'm just adding the finishing touches...But dude. Snoop's album is better than mine."

Beanie Sigel Did Not Have A Lung Removed

It was recently reported that Beanie Sigel had to have a lung removed while in the hospital after being shot in the stomach back in December. Now, someone from his camp has said Beans still has both of his lungs.

A source from the Philly native's management confirmed with XXL that Beans did have difficulties with one of his lungs, but it wasn't removed. The lung actually collapsed and had to be reinflated.

[ALSO READ: Beanie Sigel's Sister-In-Law Is Person Of Interest In Shooting]

TMZ falsely reported that his lung had to be removed because it was "riddled" with fragments from a bullet, which prevented doctors from saving it.

Beans was released from the hospital on Monday (Jan.5) after being there for almost a month, mostly in critical condition. The person who shot him still has not been caught.

Terrence Howard & Taraji P. Henson’s “Empire” Opens With Big Ratings

The reunion of Hustle & Flow co-stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson on the small screen is off to a great start. The new Fox drama series Empire, featuring Howard and Henson, premiered last night (January 7) to impressive ratings numbers.

[ALSO READ: 50 Cent Responds To Taraji P. Henson's "Empire" Versus "Power" Comments (VIDEO)]

Variety reports Empire is the biggest series launch for Fox since 2012. The show's 3.7 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 and 9.8 million average viewers topped the ratings numbers for the network's recent new programs Gotham and Red Band Society.

The Lee Daniels (Precious, The Butler) produced series even beat out ABC's Black-ish in the Wednesday 9:30 pm ET time slot (9.7 million to 6.3 million in total viewers). Empire came in right behind ABC's other breakout hit How to Get Away With Murder in the highly coveted adults 18-49 demographic (3.8 to 3.7).

This also means three of the top four new series in that demo were fronted by African-American leads – Empire, Black-ish, and How to Get Away With Murder. Viola Davis stars in Murder, and Black-ish is led by Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.

On Empire, Howard plays a former drug dealer that is now the head of a music company. Henson is his ex-wife that returns from prison to claim her share of the company. Gabourey Sidibe, Malik Yoba, Courtney Love, and Naomi Campbell also make appearances on the show.

Dr. Dre Reportedly Earned $20 Per Second In 2014

Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, and Drake among the artists featured on Sky Range's "Highest Paid Music Stars In 2014" list.

In a list compiled by Sky Range using data from Forbes, the website has listed the amounts various musicians made per second in 2014.

Thanks to the Beats Electronics deal with Apple, which was announced in May of last year, Dr. Dre towered over the other musicians featured on the "Highest Paid Music Stars In 2014" list. According to Sky Range, the former N.W.A. lyricist made approximately $20 per second in 2014.

Other artists featured at the top of the list include Taylor Swift ($2.03 per second), Justin Bieber ($2.54 per second), Beyonce ($3.65 per second), and Rihanna ($1.52 per second).

In addition to Dre, other Hip Hop artists to make it onto Sky Range's list include Jay Z ($1.90 per second), Diddy ($1.90 per second), and Drake ($1.05 per second).

Last year, Dr. Dre topped a number of Forbes' lists including their "Hip Hop Cash Kings 2014" and "World's Highest-Paid Musicians" lists.

According to Forbes' "World's Highest-Paid Musicians" list, Dre brought in $620 million in 2014 (before taxes).

Although the Compton, California rapper-turned-businessman was the highest-paid musician last year, Dre has kicked off 2015 at the center of a lawsuit filed by Monster against Beats By Dre.

According to Monster CEO Noel Lee, Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine "committed fraud in pirating the headphones away from Lee and Monster" with their Beats By Dre headphones.

Phylicia Rashad Speaks Out About Allegations Against Bill Cosby

After remaining silent during much of the fiasco, Phylicia Rashad has broken her silence about the sexual assault allegations against her former TV husband Bill Cosby.

In a recent interview, Rashad expressed concern for what these allegations were doing to the 77-year-old comedian's legacy.

"Forget these women," Rashad told Showbiz 411. "What you're seeing is the destruction of a legacy and I think it's orchestrated. I don't know why or who's doing it, but it's the legacy. And it's a legacy that is so important to the culture."

When asked how she felt about Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson claims of being drugged by Cosby, she responded with a dismissive "Oh please."

The former Mrs. Huxtable also defended Cosby's wife Camille, saying that she "is a tough woman, a smart woman" and that "she's no pushover." Rashad said she firmly believes that Mrs. Cosby has not been turning the other cheek while her husband violated woman for the past 50 years.

She also implied that someone other than the two dozen women who accused Cosby of rape are trying to keep him off of television. "And it's worked. All his contracts have been cancelled."

Due to these allegations, TV Land has taken The Cosby Show off of the air, NBC pulled the plug on a sitcom they were working on with Cosby and Netflix postponed the launch of one of his stand-up specials. Rashad questioned why someone would want to destroy the legacy of not only Cosby but The Cosby Show.

"This show represented America to the outside world. This was the American family. And now you're seeing it being destroyed. Why?"

Bill Cosby's wife, daughter and TV daughter Keisha Knight-Pulliam have come to his defense, but Cobsy himself has yet to issue a statement.

The Atlanta spitter took his new fiancee, Eudoxie Mbouguiengue, to dinner at a Georgia restaurant after the proposal and when they got home, he reportedly had a wedding dress, that was picked by his mother, laid out for her.

The two got married on the spot during a private ceremony at their home.

Migos Addresses Chief Keef Beef

"Our album should be out in the spring of 2015," Offset says.

Migos is at the forefront of Atlanta's revitalized Hip Hop movement.

Along with Rich Gang's Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug, the fast-rapping trio is "creating the new Atlanta."

In a recent interview with Vulture, Migos explained how although their counterparts are from different areas in Atlanta, they're each breaking ground on a new scene within the capital of Georgia.

"We bring the spaghetti, put it in the bowl, mix it together, and we make the new Atlanta," says Quavo, one-third of Migos. "[Quan and Thug] came from a whole 'nother side of the city. They got cities and buildings. They got blocks, but on Northside, where we're from, you got to get in a car and ride together. We turn out the suburbia areas."

Last year, Migos and Rich Gang collided on the track "New Atlanta." ATL veteran Jermaine Dupri joined the upstarts on the revamped version of his 2002 hit "Welcome to Atlanta."

After flooding the Internet last year with two mixtapes – No label 2, Rich Nigga Timelinethe crew says they are no longer making new music.

"We got our itinerary," Offset says. "Our album should be out in the spring of 2015."

When asked if they could provide further details on the project, which is a follow-up to its YRN mixtape, Quavo responded with his signature ad-lib: "You know, you just got to wait on it!"

Elsewhere in the interview, the trio provided some context to an image that was released on Twitter last month.

Within the filtered photo, which has since been deleted, Chief Keef and affiliate Tadoe stand side-by-side with Migos. Weeks before, Keef's GBE camp was blamed for allegedly stealing Quavo's chain in D.C.

"That was fake Internet beef," says Offset.

"We were in LA, and bosses made boss calls, and we made honcho calls, and we met like bosses," Quavo chimes in. "Now we are good. We're just keeping it moving, and making our money."

Keisha Knight-Pulliam Fired From Apprentice For Refusing To Call Bill Cosby

On Donald Trump's often controversial show Celebrity Apprentice, teams of celebrities work through a series of challenges in order to earn money for a charity of their choice. On January 4 the show debuted with a bang, as Keisha Knight-Pulliam, known for being the youngest daughter on The Cosby Show, was fired after refusing to call on her former television dad for help.

When asked to call Cosby (who is currently battling multiple allegations of sexual assault) and ask for a donation during a contest, Pulliam refused, revealing that the two had not spoken in years. She was then slammed by teammates prior to being let go by Trump who later took to Twitter to state, "This show was taped just before the terrible Bill Cosby revelations came to light. She still should have asked him for money-goes to charity."

Pulliam explained, "I have not talked to Bill Cosby on the phone in I don't know how long. So for me to pick up the phone, having not talked to you for five years, except for when we run into each other for a Cosby event, I feel that's not my place to do."

Beanie Sigel Awake After Shooting & Surgery

Beanie Sigel has been released from the hospital after being shot in December 2014.

After being shot in the abdomen near his home in New Jersey on Friday (December 5), Beanie Sigel was reportedly awake the same afternoon after leaving surgery. The latest news, which was delivered to The Associated Press by Pleasantville police Chief Jose Ruiz, comes after initial reports that the rapper's wounds were life-threatening.

According to Billboard, Sigel and another man were both injured outside the State Property emcee's home on the morning of December 5. Sigel was brought to the hospital for his injuries while the other man declined treatment and refused to cooperate.

Chief Jose Ruiz hinted that there might be "some type of family relationship" between Sigel and the other man.

"Apparently, there was a struggle of some type, which led to Mr. Grant being shot and that is all we have at this point," he added.

The altercation apparently took place shortly after Sigel took his children to school according to the rapper's lawyer Fortunato Perri Jr.

As previously reported by HipHopDX, Sigel was released from prison in August after a two-year bid in prison and spent time in a Philadelphia halfway house following the release.

Read the original story here for more information on the shooting and photos from the scene of the incident.

Hip Hop Album Sales Dropped Nearly 25% In 2014

Hip Hop CD sales dropped more than 29% in 2014.

After a year full of tepid commercial releases for Hip Hop, a new year-end report from Nielsen Music confirms that Rap album sales fell deeply in 2014 and suffered at nearly double the rate of the rest of the music industry.

According to Billboard's reporting of Nielsen Music's annual wrap-up, Hip Hop albums sold 24.1% less last year than in 2013 with CD sales specifically falling 29.6% over the same time period.

By contrast, digital sales fell 21.8% genre-wide. R&B sales fell even more sharply as the breakdown of "total/CD/digital percent declines were 25.1/29.0/19.6," according to the same report.

On the other hand, Hip Hop and R&B both spiked on streaming platforms with the genres contributing noticeably to an industry-wide 54 percent increase in streaming from the year before.

Album sales for all genres fell 11.2 percent to a collective 257 million units, while vinyl sales specifically were up 51.8 percent, despite only representing a 3.6 percent share of total album sales.

The latest annual report comes just weeks after J. Cole delivered the year's best first-week sales numbers of 2014.

Last month, 2014 Forrest Hills Drive sold just over 350,000 albums in its first week. Nicki Minaj followed suit shortly after, with the year's second biggest first-week sales at just under 200,000 units.

Got The Scoop On The New Dr. Dre Album

You heard it here first…

The word on the street is that Dr. Dre is plotting a new

album in 2015, but he will make his musical reintroduction in a most creative way. The word on the streets of Los Angeles is that Dre's new album will correspond with the release of the new NWA movie: Straight Outta Compton! I'm even hearing that it may be Detox as the soundtrack to the album. That's just the word. Nevertheless, I love what I am hearing. And then, Cube broke out the trailer in…Australia? What the…!? Anyway, it looks good. I just need them to show a bit more love to Ren and Yella!

Birdman’s Miami Condo Set To Be Foreclosed

Lil' Wayne isn't the only one that wants to cut ties with Birdman.

The Ivy Condo Association, who own the Cash Money CEO's Miami condo, reportedly filed court documents asking for the no.1 stunna's home to be foreclosed right before Christmas. Birdman has allegedly failed to pay $12,500 in unpaid fees and has written a slew of bounced checks to the association, which led to the condo board filing a lien on his condo back in November.

Birdman is becoming less of a stranger to cash money woes. He reportedly also has a $1.9 million federal tax lien and a $1 million lien from a construction company.

YG Threatens DJ Mustard; DJ Mustard Updates Beef Status

DJ Mustard posts a new photo and comment about his beef with YG, suggesting it may not have been real.

YG and DJ Mustard's working relationship dates back four years to YG's 2010 mixtape, The Real 4 Fingaz.

This year, Mustard produced more than half of the tracks on YG's debut album, My Krazy Life. Together, they topped the charts with singles like "My Nigga," "Left Right" and the Drake-assisted "Who Do You Love."

But today (December 29), their banner year took a turn for the worst when Mustard decided to air out his grievances with his West Coast comrade on Instagram.

In an Instagram post that has since been deleted, the award winning producer wrote: "Stop asking me about the YG shit !!! I don't know none of it on top of that I still ain't got paid for his album. So I don't give a fuck !!!!!"

Shortly after, YG responded by reposting the image, with a harsh caption.

"Fuck everybody that ain't got paid for my album," he wrote. "DJ Mustard I know where yo studio at nigga... & that's me sayin' 'Mustard on the beat hoe.' You ain't never paid me for that or yo album nigga."

The exchange escalated even further when Mustard reposted YG's response with his own threatening caption.

"I ain't for no sucka shit and this internet shit weak we can get down this won't be the first time," he wrote. "I'm finna pull up we can squabble up!"


YG has since shared a screen shot of outgoing calls to his long-time collaborator. Perhaps, they will talk things out before the situation sours even further.

For additional DJ Mustard coverage, watch the following DX Daily:

(December 29, 2014)

UPDATE: DJ Mustard posted on Instagram today (January 1) that his beef with YG may not have been legitimate.

"What ya thought a head up was gone end this ?! Jokes on yall dick heads !!!!" DJ Mustard wrote.
