Rich Homie Quan was feeling some type of way after BET told him he was not performing at their awards ceremony anymore. The "Walk Thru" was reportedly scheduled to perform at the BET Awards but when he arrived for rehearsal, he was informed that he would instead be the headliner for the red carpet show, which he was not excited about.

Safaree Samuels takes to Twitter to inform everyone that he will not be able to attend the BET Awards' red carpet this year.
The 2015 BET Awards are tonight (June 28) as stars from Hip Hop and R&B will be making appearances, putting on performances and receiving hardware for their past year of work.

Bobby Shmurda arrested at Rikers Island for obtaining a shank from girlfriend Kimberly Rousseau during a June prison visit.
Bobby Shmurda's success came overnight with his initial hit "Hot Nigga," but since being signed to Epic Records, the rapper has been more known for out of the studio occurrences than musical ones.
The New York emcee is currently in jail and on trial for numerous weapons charges, among others, and now may be in even more hot water as he was reportedly arrested for obtaining a shank from his girlfriend during a recent prison visit.
According to the New York Daily News, Shmurda, real name Ackquille Pollard, was caught on June 21 after a guard allegedly saw his girlfriend, Kimberly Rousseau, pull a black latex glove balloon wrapped in black electrical tape out of her bra and give it to the rapper. According to a criminal complaint, the guard then opened the balloon and discovered a "sharpened metal object," which could've been used later as a weapon. They both would be subsequently charged with promoting prison contraband.
In May, it was reported that Bobby Shmurda was involved in a gang-related jail brawl during which he teamed up with three other Crip members against two Bloods in a fistfight. Prison guards at Otis Bantum Correctional Center used mace to break up the skirmish.
Bobby Shmurda, along with members of his GS9 crew, face over 100 charges including reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon, conspiracy to commit murder in the second degree and criminally using drug paraphernalia. If convicted on everything he faces 25 years in prison.

"Jefe said he can prove he received an STD by a 'preponderance of evidence,'" XXL reports. "Also reported is Williams request for a temporary restraining order to prevent Azalea from calling him and threatening him."
Jefe Wine claims that he and Iggy had a common law marriage, a claim that Iggy's legal team fought. In October, his lawyer reportedly told Azalea that they would go to the press alleging she gave him an STD if they did not settle the matter out of court.
"I also was told yesterday via his lawyer if i do not settle out of court they will go to the press and say i gave him an STD, whats next?" Iggy Azalea said in October.
"I had a contract on her," Jefe Wine says. "I have a contract on her and in spite of her going to sign with a different label, in spite of her lying that she's not signed [to me], I took the high road. Even though contractually I could have just stopped it from the very beginning. I said, 'I'm just going to take the song I wrote and produced, the songs that I can lawfully put out, and put it out.' When I did that and they got wind of it—it's actually in iTunes and Warner Music put it out—they attacked it. Like, 'Hey, you can't put this out.' That's when all of the smoke hit the fan."
Jefe Wine was involved in attempt to leak a sex tape featuring Iggy Azalea last year. Jefe Wine claimed that Iggy was aware she was being filmed. She threatened to sue if the tape was ever released.

A court hearing yesterday (June 25) featured the prosecution announcing Shmurda was re-arrested on Tuesday for possession of a "sharpened metal instrument" while incarcerated at Rikers Island jail. The "Hot N*gga" rhymer now has another separate felony charge for promoting prison contraband.

The unknown sources revealed that over the span of three years, Justin Combs was the victim of verbal abuse at the hands of Alosi, who is the strength and conditioning coach at UCLA.
Combs reportedly endured public humiliating and was also bullied by the coach.
Puff, who was allegedly already aware of the treatment, chose to approach Alosi when his son informed him that he had been told to leave the field and not return for the rest of summer.
Following his encounter with Alosi, the Bad Boy Records founder was arrested for reportedly getting into a fight with the coach. He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, making terrorist threats, and battery.
Days after the incident, a rep for Puff released the following statement:
"The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate. What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son. We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed."
Despite the reports, Gucci Mane will not be released from prison in July. Guwop's lawyer Drew Findling said that the reports that the Atlanta rep will be released in July are far from true.
"We do not know where that rumor came from, so that's just Internet and social media fabrication," Findling told MTV News. "We have no idea where that release date came from because we're still in the midst of resolving things with the Bureau of Prisons. There was some confusion on their part, about his release date. I can't get into specifics, but we're in the midst of corresponding with the Bureau of Prisons."
Findling said is working hard to get Gucci back on the streets though.
"I'm trying to iron out a specific release date for him, but that I can tell you that is not his release date. There's nothing formal about that. It's a product of social media."
Rumors began swirling that Gucci would be home soon when DJ Bankhead took to his Instagram and posted "JULY 11 MY HOMIE BACK IN THE STREETS SALUTE."
Gucci has been behind bars for two years serving a three-year sentence for federal gun charges.

A 2014 case against the singers has been reopened.
Justin Bieber and Usher have been sued by R&B singer De Rico, according to Reuters.
De Rico, whose given name is Devin Copeland, claims that three songs by Bieber and Usher ripped off his song "Somebody to Love."
The lawsuit is seeking $10 million in damages for copyright infringement of De Rico's "beat pattern, time signature, and similar chords and lyrics."
The original suit was dismissed by District Judge Arenda Wright Allen in 2014. The case was revisited today (June 18) by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia and a 3-0 vote found enough reason for the case to be reviewed.
"After listening to the Copeland song and the Bieber and Usher songs as wholes, we conclude that their choruses are similar enough and also significant enough that a reasonable jury could find the songs intrinsically similar," Circuit Judge Pamela Harris writes.
The singer says "this song went number one," referring to "Loyal."
Chris Brown had a warning for the crowd at a recent concert, telling those in attendance to watch against women, according to TMZ.
"Girls, they don't get your money," Brown says. "It's stupid. So trap niggas, thug niggas get your money. But be smart, man. Everybody be smart, man. I ain't judging nobody. I love everybody. I got more problems than the President. So can we party one last night? When I was in jail, this song went number one."
The singer was referencing "Loyal," his collaboration with Lil Wayne and Tyga.

When you things can't get any worse between Chris Brown and his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, they somehow seem to surprise us on a consist basis. Over the weekend, both Breezy and Tran had their opportunities to speak out the current status of their relationship.

The NAACP has released a statement addressing the uproar surrounding Rachel Dolezal, the president of the Spokane, WA NAACP chapter who has been identifying as black but is actually a white woman. In their statement, they are offering support to Dolezal and standing by her.
Baltimore, MD – For 106 years, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has held a long and proud tradition of receiving support from people of all faiths, races, colors and creeds. NAACP Spokane Washington Branch President Rachel Dolezal is enduring a legal issue with her family, and we respect her privacy in this matter. One's racial identity is not a qualifying criteria or disqualifying standard for NAACP leadership. The NAACP Alaska-Oregon-Washington State Conference stands behind Ms. Dolezal's advocacy record. In every corner of this country, the NAACP remains committed to securing political, educational, and economic justice for all people, and we encourage Americans of all stripes to become members and serve as leaders in our organization.
Hate language sent through mail and social media along with credible threats continue to be a serious issue for our units in the Pacific Northwest and across the nation. We take all threats seriously and encourage the FBI and the Department of Justice to fully investigate each occurrence.
Dolezal's parents, Ruthanne and Larry, revealed to the media that they are white and so is their daughter. In an interview with the Spokesman-Review, they said that she had been pretending to be a black woman since 2006 or 2007.
Dolezal is currently under investigation to determine whether she violated a code of ethics when she identified herself as white, black and American Indian on an application for the citizen police ombudsman commission, which she is the chair of.
Bow Wow also explains his Cash Money Records departure.
Bow Wow left Cash Money after six years without releasing his Underratedalbum. He says that he didn't realize how much time was going by while he was there given his work hosting 106 & Park, among other things.
"I had so many other things going on [besides music]," the rapper says to XXL. "Then 106 comes and I do that for two years. I was making so much money outside of rap that I was so comfortable, I wasn't even checking for music like that. I never even blew up the label's phone like, 'Yo, what's going on?' I never once tripped because I was cool. I was fortunate to have so many hustles that not doing one wasn't hurting me. The only thing that was hurting me was the fact that my fans would want music or I wanted to put out stuff. It was a situation that I wished worked out for the best, because any situation that I do, I want it to work. Anything you do in business, you want it to win."
He says that there was never any bad blood between him and the label.
"I had a great time over there," he says. "I had a chance to learn a lot from everybody. I'm still cool with them to this day. I have no problem with nobody over there. I'm just a non-confrontational dude. I just did my business the cool way and the respectable way because you never know when you might need somebody."
The multi-talented businessman also explains his name change. A year ago, he announced on Instagram that he was changing his stage name from Bow Wow to his given name, Shad Moss. He tells the magazine that he made the announcement because he is now known for more than music.
"I had to go to this CBS event and it was like, I can't come as Bow Wow," he says. "There's a different level of shit. As an actor, I'm standing next to Patricia Arquette—who's now an Oscar Award winner—and I have to align myself in this elite class. It's no different than when Jay Z goes as Shawn Carter when he's suited up handling other business."

Nicki Minaj reacts to ex Safaree Samuels' "Love The Most" record, via Twitter.
Earlier this week, Queens, New York rapper Nicki Minaj issued somewhat of a response to her ex, Safaree Samuels' new record, "Love The Most."
On the song, Samuels touches on his past relationship with Minaj, who is now dating fellow artist Meek Mill, and questions why he was always in the shadows during their relationship.
On "Love The Most," he raps: "What a shame it took a split for them to know I was your man / Got so tired of hiding and head high with no pride in it / Guess I wasn't cool enough 'cause in our pictures be hidin' it."
In her series of tweets, Minaj never mentioned Samuels by name, but did reference being cheated on and recalled taking "a person with me to fame & fortune." She then suggests that the person she's referring to end their pity party and "just live your life."
The couple broke up late last year after what was reportedly a 12-year long relationship.
While seemingly enjoying fatherhood to his daughter Royalty, Chris Brown has been having a rough time coping with his breakup from his ex-girlfriend of five years, Karrueche Tran. He recently stopped by the On Air With Ryan Seacrest show to talk about the emotional rollercoaster he's been on since finding out he was a father and losing his love.
When discussing moving on from Tran, the "Love More" singer said he is taking it "one day at a time."
"I can't promise anything and I can't jump over the moon, but it takes time for all wounds [to heal]. I take full responsibility for my actions and things that I've done in the past…"Of course I still love her, but mentally right now, I think everything takes time. I just need to focus on being the best father I can be."
The 26-year-old said that ever since he found out he was a father, he has matured more so he could take on this major responsibility.
"I think this was just a blessing in disguise with my daughter because I get a chance to look at her and teach her the right path and also be a father in my daughter's life. Just to see a smile on her face — just to see the littlest things — is emotional for me, so I just love that aspect of being able to be a father now."
Listen to the interview below to also hear him chat about new music and working with Jamie Foxx..
Chris Brown once again became the butt of many social media jokes after pics/video surfaced on him confronting ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran outside an L.A. nightspot. The R&B singer was even seen banging and yelling at Karrueche's door around 3:30 in the morning. The whole thing made CB look like an obsessive ex that didn't know when to let go.
TMZ got word that Chris was supposedly just acting on advice from mutual friends that told him Karrueche was looking to get back together. But it seems it was all a lie. The site reports:
Fact is, Karrueche never told anyone she wants back with Chris. According to our sources, she and Chris figured out the next day that they'd been had. We're told they're cutting off the so-called "friends" behind the conspiracy.
One of the most surprising moments from last night's Hot 97 Summer Jam was seeing 50 Cent and French Montana on stage together during Chris Brown's performance. It's no secret 50 and French have been beefing for a while, so having the New York reps stand in front of that tri-state crowd would seem to be a good sign for NYC.
Except French's boss may not be too happy about it. See, 50 has been calling out Diddy for over a year, saying he can't make hot music anymore and claiming his vodka brand Effen is better than Diddy's Ciroc. Fif even suggested French and Diddy were gay.
It appears Diddy felt some type of way about French showing up with 50 at Summer Jam. He posted a message on IG that said, "Never forget who was there for you when no one else was."
Lil' Kim just can't catch a break. Despite being a highly revered female emcee, she is criticized year round for her image.

Chris Brown reportedly tried to reunite with former girlfriend Karrueche Tran in Hollywood yesterday (June 4), but the encounter also led to the police pulling up outside her house.
"A police car pulled up outside Karrueche's house early this morning while Chris was there," TMZ reports. "Law enforcement sources tell us someone called cops to complain about the noise Chris and co. were making at her door. We're told officers spoke to Chris and Karrueche, but there was no evidence of a crime ... so no tickets, no arrests."
The pair was seen at the Playhouse nightclub. Chris Brown got the V.I.P. table next to Tran, much to the displeasure of the model.
"We're told KT was PISSED and left the club ... and Brown followed ... eventually weaseling his way into her SUV," TMZ reports. "Our sources connected to Karrueche say KT did NOT want him inside -- and dropped him off with his friends a short time later."
Chris Brown later went to her house at three in the morning, and she agreed to meet him at a diner.
"Once inside, we're told they began to argue and it escalated into a full-blown shouting match," TMZ says. "Eventually, Karrueche left the restaurant and returned home -- without Chris."
Oh Breezy! Chris Brown is back in the spotlight for allegedly doing something else crazy. Allegedly, his ill temper caused him to get into an altercation with a flight attendant. Apparently the singer was asked
to stop smoking, and he replied saying he paid $60,000 for the jet, so he owns it and everyone inside. Allegedly, Chris blew smoke in the flight attendant's face and told her she was too old to be on his jet because he likes his help to be peopled he'd actually have sex with. Wow. Brown's rep says the story is completely false.
The family of Terry Carter has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Suge Knight, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, TMZreports. Carter's wife and children filed the lawsuit claiming that Cube and Dre hired gang-affiliated security for protection while filming in rough L.A neighborhoods.
In the suit, the Carter family claims that some of those gang members started a fight and threatened Knight, which led to him retaliating and coming through the Tam's Burger's parking lot, killing Carter. Tam's Burgers is named in the lawsuit as well due to the family feeling that since criminal activity occurs there regularly that there should have been security on the premises.
Knight, who is facing murder and hit-and-run charges in Carter's death, is due back in court on July 7th .
James Carlton Winfrey surrendered on June 2nd and is now facing charges including criminal gang activity, terroristic threats, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a felon, discharging a firearm on or near a public highway and reckless conduct. On the warrant that was issued last week for Winfrey's arrest, it stated that he shot at the tour bus "in order to gain status in his criminal organization by committing a high profile shooting of a rival rap artist." Winfrey is reportedly affiliated with the Bloods gang.
The 25-year-old fired shots at two tour buses as they traveled along I-285 on April 26th after Weezy performed at Atlanta's Compound night club. The shooting caused $20,000 in damages. No one was injured.
Winfrey was already on probation after being convicted of drug possession in Florida last October. He is being held without bail.
Kelly Mayhew traveled from Maryland to New York in order to get black market body enhancements. The 34-year-old BET Network freelancer ended up losing her life after receiving butt injections in a "makeshift medical clinic" located in a Queens basement apartment.
The New York Daily News reports Mayhew and her mother visited the location where the unlicensed medical procedure was performed. The mother told police Mayhew started struggling to breathe after the silicone was injected into her buttocks. She later died at St. John's Episcopal Hospital.
Mayhew reportedly received five previous injections, and she was referred to the Queens illegal practitioner by a friend. Sources claim the dubious surgeon did not live at the residence where the injections were taking place, but a nurse's aide had resided at the apartment at one time.
"Some of [the women] had weird butts. I knew something was going on but I couldn't put my finger on it," said Joan Doyle, the owner of the house.
A spokesperson for New York City's medical examiner's office has stated Mayhew's initial autopsy was inconclusive, but the ME is conducting further studies. Police are investigating Mayhew's death.
The suspect that performed the injections fled the scene. The person that supposedly connected Mayhew to the "doctor" has since erased her social media accounts, according to Daily News sources.
"Our heart goes out to her family and we extend our deepest sympathies for their loss," said BET spokesman Jamie Owens in a statement.
Mayhew is not the first woman to die after getting butt injections. Tamara Blaine died in NYC in 2013, and Wykesha Reid died in Dallas earlier this year.
Butt augmentation has become a very popular procedure in recent years. Several female celebrities have been suspected of having the surgery done.
After T.I gave us hope that there was a ATL sequel on the way back in March, Lauren London has cautioned fans not to get too excited.
"It's not definitely in the works," she told The YBF. "I don't want to be the spokesperson for it. I don't want people take my word for it. So, no. Right now it is a concept and there's a lot of possibilities with that."
T.I uploaded flicks via IG earlier this year of he and London, Jason Weaver, Jackie Long, Albert Daniels and director Chris Robinson all on set the movie. The "No Mediocre" rapper went on to say in an interview that all the cast members were returning.
"Nobody's saying 'No, I'm not doing it,' regardless of any success they've assumed afterwards or how many other projects they have to work on," Tip said. "Everybody's coming back."
The doctor who was blamed for Kanye West's mother's death is hoping that his name can finally be cleared. Dr. Jan Adams said that it was in fact West's cousin, Stephan Scoggins, whose negligence once Dr. Donda West left the hospital led to her death, according to the New York Daily News.
"Most people that I run into think she died on the table, they don't even know this lady was home for a day," Adams told the News. "The truth hasn't been revealed."
Adams said that Scoggins, a registered nurse with a Ph.D in public health, cared for Dr. West after she left the hospital after her liposuction, breast reduction and tummy-tuck surgery, even though Adams recommended that she receive care at a private recovery center.
Adams claimed that Scoggins left Dr. West with friends who were not qualified to take care of her, did not hook up the patient monitors in her bedroom and did not answer calls when Dr. West needed to be tended to.
Dr. West was also took 20 Vicodins for pain and choked on her own vomit after laying flat in her bed. She died on Nov. 10th, 2007 and the coroner's report stated that medication used for pain and vomit were contributing factors to her death.
When confronted about the allegations, Scoggins told the Daily News that "it is absolutely not the case."
Kanye West has not commented on any of these claims.
The rapper was engaged to her longtime boyfriend Nick "Swaggy P" Young at his 30th birthday party on June 1.
The couple were surrounded by her closest friends and family, according to reports.
"It was a beautiful celebration for Nick with only his close friends and family," a source told E! News. "Nick completely surprised Iggy with the proposal. She was shocked and so excited and emotional at the same time.
"Nick has known for a long time Iggy was the one for him, but he was just waiting on the perfect time to pop the question," the source adds. "They both have gotten very close these passed few months and he can't think of anyone else to spend his life with but her. One of the most important things about Iggy is the way she is to his son."
Recently, Iggy called off a tour of the United States. This certainly allows her to focus on her personal life.
The New York Post reports Drizzy is speaking with Apple about joining the company as a guest DJ for iTunes Radio. The number of $19 million has apparently been thrown around during the discussions. Sources claim Pharrell Williams and David Guetta are possible partners as well.
According to the Post, Apple is also looking to one up its music streaming competitors by combining elements of Pandora, Spotify and YouTube. The new Apple Music roll out could include music and video streaming, artists' pages, and a post-it-yourself platform called Apple Connect.
Apple jumped head first into the "streaming wars" when the corporation purchased Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine's Beats Electronics for $3 billion last year. The buyout brought the streaming service Beats Music under the Apple umbrella.
