Spike Lee To Be Awarded Lifetime Achievement Oscar

"The board is proud to recognize our honorees' remarkable contributions," said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. "We'll be celebrating their achievements with the knowledge that the work they have accomplished – with passion, dedication and a desire to make a positive difference – will also enrich future generations."

Actress Gena Rowlands will also receive an honorary Lifetime Achievement Oscar. The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award will be presented to singer/dancer Debbie Reynolds.

Lee has been nominated twice for Oscars (Best Original Screenplay – Do the Right Thing, Best Documentary – 4 Little Girls). The lack of directing nods for Lee is widely considered one of the biggest career snubs in the industry. His filmography also includes Jungle Fever, Clockers, He Got Game, and Inside Man.

Scarface: I Don’t Like The Geto Boys Or None Of Those Albums

The ill-fated 2015 Geto Boys reunion was not what many fans hoped it would be. The legendary group talked about reforming for another album, but Scarface has made it clear he no longer wants to join Bushwick Bill and Willie D for new music.

[ALSO READ: Scarface Says He's Never Reuniting With The Geto Boys Again (VIDEO)]

In an interview with Noisey, Face took that sentiment even further. The Deeply Rooted album creator expressed his disdain for previous GB projects like The Geto Boys, We Can't Be Stopped, and Till Death Do Us Part.

"I don't like the Geto Boys at all. I don't like none of the albums, I don't like none of the songs," stated Scarface. "I'm done with that group, and I'm never going to be a part of it again. It's just a part of my life that I want to forget. The Geto Boys and I can't get no more money together. None. No more money."

According to Scarface, chemistry among the trio was not the problem. It was other things associated with the crew that has led him to being done with the Geto Boys. The Texas native revealed he regretted making The Foundation and called Da Good Da Bad & Da Ugly a "f*cking trash album."

"That was a time when Master P was taking over the airways, so J Prince wanted to Master P the game," explained Face about the making of Da Good Da Bad. "I was like 'wow like we f*cked up so bad trying to do Master P when we should've just continued to do us.' I feel like that was the fall of Rap-A-Lot Records to me."

Scarface did not hold back on his solo material either. He stated his dislike for The World is Yours, The Last of a Dying Breed, Balls and My Word, and My Homies Part 2. Face also referred to Made as his best lyrical work, The Diary as his Dark Side Of The Moon, and The Fix as his favorite.

Miley Cyrus Weighs In On Nicki Minaj’s VMA Criticism, Says Nicki Is “Not Too

Miley Cyrus is hosting the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Nicki Minaj is scheduled to perform at the showcase. Things could get awkward that night between the two superstars after Miley offered her thoughts on Nicki's critical tweets against MTV's nomination process.

[ALSO READ: Nicki Minaj Questions Why She Didn't Receive More VMA Nominations For "Anaconda"]

Back in July, Minaj questioned why her video for "Anaconda" was not nominated for Video Of The Year. She wrote, "When the 'other' girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get the nomination."

Taylor Swift responded to the Young Money rapper which led to a highly publicized social media exchange. The women eventually settled their issues in private.

Cyrus was asked about Nicki's comments during an interview with the New York Times. The VOTY VMA winner for "Wrecking Ball" felt Minaj made the situation about herself and not a greater racial cause. She even referred to the Queens native as not being a nice person.

Miley said:

You know what I always say? Not that this is jealousy, but jealousy does the opposite of what you want it to — that's a yoga mantra. People forget that the choices that they make and how they treat people in life affect you in a really big way. If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don't respect your statement because of the anger that came with it.

She continued:

If you want to make it about race, there's a way you could do that. But don't make it just about yourself. Say: "This is the reason why I think it's important to be nominated. There's girls everywhere with this body type.

What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It's not very polite. I think there's a way you speak to people with openness and love. You don't have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isn't even on what you wanted it to be about. Now you've just given E! News "Catfight! Taylor and Nicki Go at It."

I know you can make it seem like, Oh I just don't understand because I'm a white pop star. I know the statistics. I know what's going on in the world. But to be honest, I don't think MTV did that on purpose.

Music Executives Think Jay Z’s Tidal Will Fail In Less Than A Year

Despite numerous exclusives from artists like Beyoncé, Lil Wayne, Prince, and Madonna, the Tidal streaming service has been off to a rough start. The initial roll out of the Jay Z led platform faced criticism for coming off as elitist, and the $20 price for the premium option was viewed as too expensive.

All of this has led to many insiders wondering how long Tidal will be able to compete against Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming services. Billboard conducted a survey of over 50 top executives in the music business, and an overwhelming number of the brass believe Tidal will be dead by August 2016.

The survey also included respondents saying they believe Apple's Jimmy Iovine is the most talented executive in the business. Rap music was also named the most despised genre, and a majority feel the industry is unfair to artists.

Another recent survey showed consumers are not responding to the new Apple Music service. Research company MusicWatch surveyed 5,000 Apple users. Forty-eight percent of those questioned no longer use Apple Music and sixty-one percent turned off the auto-renewal option.

Tyga Ordered To Pay $70,000 To Landlord

A judge rules in the lawsuit over a Calabasas, California home.

Tyga did not show up to court yesterday (August 26) in the ongoing lawsuit between him and the owner of a home he claims he bought, TMZ reports.

The judge ruled that Tyga must pay the owner $70,000 in back rent. The owner initially sued the California rapper for not paying rent for two months.

Tyga is also facing a six-digit lawsuit for breaking a contract with a Las Vegas nightclub.

(This article was updated on July 30, 2015 and is as follows.)

Tyga says that he does not owe rent to anyone, but he is purchasing the house that he is reportedly being evicted from, according to TMZ.

The rapper says that he put down $200,000 on the home a year ago and was given permission to move in. The seller reportedly agreed to put the money in escrow, a third party where the money is held until agreed upon by buyer and seller.

Tyga claims the escrow was supposed to close months ago, but the seller failed to provide information to Tyga's bank that would have closed the deal.

"We evidently live in a world where a man's word is no longer your bond," Tyga's lawyer, Lee Hutton says.

(The original article in this thread was published on July 29, 2015 and is as follows.)

Tyga is being sued by the landlord of his Calabasas mansion for two months rent, according to TMZ.

The home Tyga previously shared with his ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna, rents for $25,000 a month.

His landlord says this isn't the first time the Young Money artist has been behind on his rent and says he has until Saturday to pay. If Tyga doesn't pay, the landlord will file for eviction and charge the "Rack City" rapper an additional $833.33 per day.

Tyga was previously sued in May for not paying rent at a different property for nearly $125,000 plus interest and is currently being sued by Last Kings co-founder for $1.6 million dollars.

Actor Who Played Tupac In N.W.A Biopic Is Working With John Singleton For Tupac

While portraying the late Tupac in the N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton, Marcc Rose caught the eye of director John Singleton and it looks like they will be working on a project of their own.

While promoting Compton, Rose spilled the beans about he and Singleton working on a Tupac biopic.

"Me and director John Singleton are trying to brainstorm and form together a proper biopic for him," the 23-year-old told Yahoo! News. "Hopefully if everything works out we can make it work."

It turns out that Rose was also a part of the first Tupac movie that Singleton was involved in but they both ended up cutting ties with the project back in April.

"When Singleton exited so did I," he said. "If the rights to the biopic are returned to Pac's mom, Afeni Shakur, John Singleton and I will be reassociated with it."

Dr. Dre Issues Statement Regarding Assaults Against Women

Apple also issues a statement.

Dr. Dre addresses the multiple allegations that he has physically abused women in a statement to The New York Times that was released today (August 21).

"Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life," the Aftermath label boss writes. "However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I've been married for 19 years and every day I'm working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I'm doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again."

Dr. Dre doesn't name specific victims in his statement, but makes a general apology.

"I apologize to the women I've hurt," he continues. "I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives."

Apple also makes a statement to The New York Times. Dre has worked with Apple since May 2014, which is when Apple bought the Beats company Dr. Dre co-founded.

"Dre has apologized for the mistakes he's made in the past and he's said that he's not the same person that he was 25 years ago," the Apple statement reads. "We believe his sincerity and after working with him for a year and a half, we have every reason to believe that he has changed."

Tairrie B, Dee Barnes & Michel'le Discuss Dr. Dre

Tairrie B, Dee Barnes and Michel'le also describe the decision to open up about their stories.

Tairrie B reached out to Barnes via Facebook to share their experiences.

"The initial conversation was like group therapy, to heal our wounds," Barnes says.

Tairrie B says that she wishes she would have addressed the situation where Dr. Dre allegedly punched her at a Grammy party in 1990.

"I had a lot of guilt," she says about not pressing charges. "Had I pressed charges, he would have had a strike against him. And maybe Michel'le would have stood up, too. Maybe it would have made him think."

Michel'le has also spoke about being beaten by Dr. Dre and why she was not portrayed in the movie.

"They told their story," she says. "I'm telling mine."

Dr. Dre also addressed the multiple allegations earlier this month during an interview with Rolling Stone. "I made some fucking horrible mistakes in my life," he said at the time.

Meek Mill Posts About Being On Nicki’s Tour

Earlier today (Aug. 20), Meek Mill, took to his Instagram account and posted performance footage from his recent appearance in Edmonton, Candada. In conjunction with The Pinkprint Tour, the Philly rapper is currently on the road with his girlfriend, Nicki Minaj, the tour's headliner.

In recent weeks, a dismal disagreement arose between Meek Mill and Drake. This prompted Drizzy to release the scathing "Back to Back" freestyle where his brazen bars challenged: "Is that a world tour or your girl's tour / I know you gotta be a thug for her / This ain't what she meant when she told you to open up more…"

As the social media skirmish between the two artists have fizzled out, Meek used an interesting caption for his IG post writing, "Last night on the #pinkprinttour #aka #mygirltour," the "I'm A Boss," rapper then added, "Edmonton Canada! Glad 2 b apart of it!"

In his war of waxed words, is this an instance of Meek Mill subliminally accepting defeat; or, is he continuing to show love to his boo, Nicki Minaj?

Woman Suing 2 Chainz For $5 Million Representing Herself

Christine Chisholm says "there's no reason" why she shouldn't win her case against 2 Chainz.

Christine Chisholm, the woman suing Atlanta, Georgia rapper 2 Chainz for $5 million over his "Thot" video, plans on representing herself in court. Chisholm shared the news while speaking exclusively with Charlotte, North Carolina news station WBTV.

The woman, who previously revealed that 2 Chainz associate Cap 1 invited her backstage, recalled being in "shock" upon finding out about the release of the video.

"Crazy," Chisholm said when asked what her life's been like following the release of the video. "I can't go out in public…Before the video had even started I was in the back room and we were just eating chicken wings. Actually, until the end, I really didn't even know if they were recording. And I didn't know that he was gonna post it on the blogs. I was just in shock."

Although Chisholm has chosen not to receive the assistance of any lawyers, she sees no reason why she should not win her case.

"I feel like if I'm just honest with everything that really happened then there's no reason why I wouldn't win," she said. "If I could see 2 Chainz, I would just be like, 'Where's my money?'"

Russell Poole, Detective In Biggie’s Murder Case, Dies

The former LAPD detective responsible for developing theories on the deaths of The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur, has died.

Russell Poole, the detective who handled the murder case for the late Notorious B.I.G. for a year, has died, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The publication reports that Poole was working on another cold case, and was meeting with detectives when he collapsed following a suspected heart attack. He later died at a local hospital.

"Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies at the Homicide Bureau reported that Russell Poole collapsed Wednesday morning, according to a sheriff's department official. He was meeting with detectives about a cold case when he collapsed and was unresponsive. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he died, the coroner's office said," the Los Angeles Times reports.

Poole has provided theories on the deaths of both Tupac Shakur and Biggie.

The former LAPD detective was also responsible for penning "LAbyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., the Implication of Death Row Records' Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal," a book which was released in 2003.

"The Russell Poole Theory," Poole's theory which suggested that the former head of Death Row security and Suge Knight's ex-wife put a hit on Shakur and Knight, was recently featured in Vice's "A Former LAPD Detective Thinks He Knows Who Killed Tupac" feature story.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Poole suspected that Biggie's death was retaliation for Shakur's death.

"I had a voice in my ear saying, 'Yeah man, if you want to stay relevant you gotta tap into the youth'," said Scarface. "I was saying to myself, 'If I go see him and get some youth music then I'll look like the 7 foot fifteen year old."

The man that is considered by many Hip Hop followers to be one of the greatest emcees of all time also talked about his upcoming album. In addition, the Deeply Rooted rhymer discussed his appreciation for New York City's role in the culture, his relationship with Eazy-E, being an indie artist, the business side of the industry, and ending his tour with Geto Boys.

"That's over," responded Face when asked about being on the road with Willie D and Bushwick Bill. "That's a page in history that is closed for me. I'm done. That's never going to happen again."

In June, the Geto Boys had started a Kickstarter campaign to fund a reunion album. It appears the supposed Habeas Corpus project is not happening anymore.

Amber Rose Wrongfully Caught Up In Alleged Prostitution Scam

A California company is being accused of using Amber Rose to lure aspiring models into prostitution. According to TMZ, Los Angeles police have launched an investigation into the alleged internet scam.

After viewing an ad on Instagram, the models thought Amber was the person selecting which one women would participate in a photo shoot. Rose does not appear to be directly involved in the situation.

The company also used an old video of Amber to make it appear the women were video conferencing with the celebrity. As the models called in, the footage would begin to break up and then eventually end.

One victim filed a report with the LAPD claiming the company attempted to set the women up with wealthy men. Then the models were asked if they would be willing to have sex with the men. The potential of getting placed on bigger projects was the incentive to sleep with their "dates."

Is The Def Jam Story The Next Hip-Hop Biopic?

Does this look familiar to you? Do you remember Krush Groove?

This movie is called "Krush Groove" and it was supposedly the story of early Def Jam, made in 1985! Here is the description:

In the movie, Russell Walker has signed all of the hottest acts to his Krush Groove record label, including Run-D.M.C., Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde (Alonzo Brown), and Kurtis Blow. Rick Rubin produces their records. When Run-D.M.C. has a hit record and Russell doesn't have the money to press records, he borrows money from a street hustler. At the same time, Russell and his brother Run are both competing for the heart of R&B singer-percussionist Sheila E. Also appearing in the film are LL Cool J, the Beastie Boys, New Edition, the Fat Boys and some of their songs, as well as others from the likes of Chaka Khan, Debbie Harry, and the Gap Band. Members of the R&B group Full Force also make a cameo in the film as bodyguards.

Anyway, that was a long, long time ago – 30 years! The word on the street is that a revised, more truthful look at Def Jam Records as a movement. I'm thinking it could happen and be an epic story! Thoughts?

Jay Z Performed A Diss Track Directed At 2Pac Live At The Apollo

With all the "beef" cooking this summer, it's no surprise stories of old battles are once again being brought up. DJ Clark Kent recently provided a brief history lesson about the situation between Jay Z and 2Pac.

The late, great emcee famously called out Jay on his The Don Killuminati cut "Bombs First," and Kent told A Waste of Time podcast Hov recorded a response but didn't release it out of respect for Pac's death.

The "Brooklyn's Finest" producer said:

Jay did a record going at Pac, but right as it was about to come out son died. We performed it though. You have to understand the chip on Jay's shoulder is so crazy. It's just like he had to perform it. We was at The Apollo. It was scathing. Crowds were like, "oh sh*t." It was super hard. If he was alive there would have been no coming back.

Miley Cyrus Compares Herself To Kendrick Lamar

The singer also explains why she is not viewed as a good role model.

Miley Cyrus expresses frustration at what she sees as double standards in a recent interview with Marie Claire.

"There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it," she says. "Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he's cool. I do it and I'm a druggie whore."

Cyrus started a non-profit called The Happy Hippy Foundation, which seeks to raise awareness about homelessness and the LBGTQ community. She has been allegedly dating Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell.

"I've been talking a lot about my being gender-fluid and gender-neutral," Cyrus says. "And some people snarl at that. They want to judge me. People need more conventional role models, I guess. But I just don't care to be that person."

Cyrus also questions why Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood," which features the singer in revealing clothing and beating men up in an office, is popular, while she is criticized for posing nude for various publications.

"I don't get the violence-revenge thing," she says. "That's supposed to be a good example? And I'm a bad role model because I'm running around with my titties out? I'm not sure how titties are worse than guns."

Meek Mill On Drake: “I’m Not Entertaining No Rap/Real Beef"

Meek Mill reportedly posts about his beef with Drake.

Meek Mill reportedly posted on Instagram that he is no longer going to beef with Drake.

"I'm not entertaining no rap/real beef over drake s/o a rapper!" the Meek Mill post says, according to a tweet from DJ Akademiks that was posted today (August 12). Meek Mill's purported post has since been removed.

Meek Mill, who appeared to initiate the beef last month when he said that Drake "don't write his own raps," says he should have never entertained the conflict.

"It won't bring me no money or success," he wrote. "Ima take blame for it even tho 'I can stand' anything I do or say and niggaz know…"

Later in the post, Meek Mill says that his status in the game makes him feel secure.

"I don't feel like I gotta try to prove myself to the people and end up in a real situation over this fake rap shit!" he wrote. "I'm just on some next level shit wit it tryna touch some real paper…Leave all that murder one shit in the streets."

Last month, Drake released the "Charged Up" song in response to Meek Mill's accusations, which was followed by Meek Mil's "Wanna Know" diss of the Canadian rapper. "Wanna Know" is no longer on the Philadelphia rapper's Soundcloud page.

Busta Rhymes Under Criminal Investigation For Alleged Threats At BET Awards

Investigators are looking to speak with Busta Rhymes concerning alleged threats he made at this year's BET Awards in Los Angeles. TMZ reports a woman named Kim Simpson filed a police report against Busta (born Trevor Smith).

[ALSO READ: Check Out Some Of The Best Memes From The 2015 BET Awards (PHOTOS)]

Simpson alleges her friend accidentally bumped into Busta while dancing at the award show. She claims the Brooklyn rapper replied by saying, "I'll bite you and not that kinda bite."

According to Simpson, Busta later told the two women "Don't make me slap you" after he was caught in a photograph being taken of reality star Deelishis. Simpson says Busta even charged at them before security broke it up.

Busta has faced legal issues in the past. In 2007, he was charged with third-degree assault for attacking a man that spat on his car. In 2009, the "Woo Hah!!" performer was ordered to pay a concert goer $75,000 for supposedly throwing water bottles at the fan. Earlier this month, Busta was arrested for assault in a Manhattan gym.

He maintains his story that he didn't kill Bobbi Kristina Brown, and that he was the person that loved her the most. It's easy to see how Gordon would be heartbroken, but heartbreak doesn't equal innocence. Do you think the lawsuit against Gordon is based on baseless allegations, or do you think he really is the reason for Brown's untimely death?

“Empire” Creator Lee Daniels & FOX To Be Sued By Marvin Gaye III

Marvin Gaye III says "Empire" was his idea.

Marvin Gaye III plans to file a lawsuit against Lee Daniels, FOX and others over their hit television show Empire, which Gaye says was his idea, according to TMZ.

In 2010, Gaye says that he registered the idea for a show called Diamonds & Ballads (aka Those Sons Of Riches!), a treatment that detailed a program about "a music based 'black' and 'hip' version of Dynasty ... with a little Sopranos."

Gaye says that Daniels' associates were pitched his treatment. He also says that, in 2014, Daniels says that he wanted to make a Black Dynasty.

Gaye's claim is not the only one questioning the ethics of Empire's production team. In December, 50 Cent said that the advertising for Empire was too similar to the promotion for Power, the Starz network program in which he stars and that he executive produces.

In February, Empire became the only primetime scripted series to grow in total viewers over each of its first five telecasts since at least 1991.

The second season of Empire is set to launch on FOX September 23.

Did Kendrick Lamar Send More Subliminals At Drake

Drake dismantled Meek Mill in short order, but the Toronto native may have to answer another rapper's verbal attacks. Dr. Dre's new album Compton: A Soundtrack features appearances by Aftermath emcee Kendrick Lamar, and some of K. Dot's bars have the Internet wondering if he was sending more shots toward Drizzy.

[ALSO READ: Dr. Dre To Donate Royalties From "Compton: A Soundtrack" To Fund Children's Art Facility]

Kendrick is featured on "Darkside/Gone" and "Deep Water" off Compton. "Darkside/Gone" includes the TDE representative mentioning enemies giving him energy. On his song "Energy," Drake raps "I got enemies, got a lot of enemies. Got a lot of people tryna drain me of my energy."

You scared of my heist now. But still I got enemies giving me energy. I wanna fight now. Subliminals sending me all of this hate. I thought I was holding the mic down.

– Kendrick, "Darkside/Gone"

On "Deep Water," Kendrick can be heard saying, "They nominated six to carry him… the beef is on his breath." Drake refers to himself as the "6 God."

Once upon a time I shot a n*gga on accident. I tried to kill him, but I guess I needed more practice then. That's when I realized banging wasn't for everybody. Switch it up before my enemy or the sheriff got me.

They liable to bury him. They nominated six to carry him. They worry him to death but he no vegetarian. The beef is on his breath inheriting the drama better than a Great White. N*gga, this is life in my aquarium.

– Kendrick, "Deep Water"

Both Kendrick and Drake have been suspected of sending subliminal shots at each other over the past two years. The verbal jousting began after K. Dot challenged his peers on Big Sean's "Control." The below-the-radar battle supposedly continued on with Drake's lines from "Sh!t (Remix)" and "Used To" as well as Kendrick's contribution to "Pay For It."

Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooter Says Birdman Should Be Held Liable

The alleged shooter named Birdman in new court documents.

Jimmy Winfrey, the man charged for shooting Lil Wayne's tour bus, is saying that Birdman should be held accountable for the crime as well, TMZ reports.

"[Birdman's] financial dispute with [Lil Wayne] is what ultimately led to the shooting," Winfrey says in new court documents.

In December, Lil Wayne said on Twitter that he wanted off Cash Money Records and he later sued Birdman for $8 million.

Because of this, "[Birdman] should be held liable as a party to the crime," the documents continue.

Last month, Birdman was named with Young Thug in an indictment for conspiracy in the shooting.

Birdman denied involvement in the shooting.

OG Maco & Migos Feud Over Social Media

Migos question OG Maco's ability to set trends, while OG Maco questions Migos' ability to sell albums.

As the feud between Drake and Meek Mill begins to simmer, it appears that a new beef is beginning to form. The latest rapper riff appears to be between Atlanta artists Migos and OG Maco.

An exchange took place on social media yesterday (August 6) after the official Twitter account for Migos sent the following tweet about OG Maco being unable to set a trend: "@DaFlippaMan Is In the Migo Family @OGMaco Let's See u Set a Trend!! #Rookie"

OG Maco responded back on Twitter by stating that "Half the rap game has already bit one of my flows or adlibs." He also questioned the album sales from the group's newly-released album, Yung Rich Nation.

"Half the rap game has already bit one of my flows or adlibs. Let me see them album sales figures!!!," OG Maco said in a tweet sent on August 6.

The Twitter spat continued back-and-forth, with Migos suggesting that their album will pay Maco's bills. OG Maco later stated that the only money he's received from a Migos was from the currently-incarcerated Offset.

"I never got a dolla from any Migo but Offset. Free him. I'm starting to think them album numbers locked up wit em," OG Maco tweeted.

Meek Mill Disses Drake, Says Nicki Minaj Reason For Feud

Meek Mill also questions if Drake started from the bottom.

Meek Mill performed a new Drake diss verse at the Camden, New Jersey stop of "The Pinkprint Tour" yesterday (August 6), PMG Vids reports. Camden is across the Delaware River from Mill's hometown of Philadelphia.

Meek Mill wore a red Philadelphia 76ers basketball jersey with the number 6, a nickname for Drake's hometown of Toronto.

The MMG rapper says his relationship with girlfriend Nicki Minaj is part of the reason for the beef with Drake.

"See I don't think it's bout no rapping it's about Nicki / He told us he was first in line but it got tricky / I still wake up with the lady that you said you first in line with," Mill raps, referencing Drake's verse on Nicki Minaj's "Only" where he says he's first in line to sleep with her.

Meek Milly also clowned Drake for his lack of street credit, saying he didn't really "Start From the Bottom," like the rapper claims on his cut from Nothing Was The Same. He also trolls Drake for his acting on Degrassi and says he is a snitch.

"See I represent the niggas the come from the bottom," Mill raps. "If you started from that, make some fucking noise / I said when I first seen my homie sitting in the casket / Is when I first went to get the ratchet / Shit is real, the fuck Drake sent you to do me like Emmett Till / And I can smell death in the air and you the kill / When you was still out in the field toting them Glocks / Man he was still wheelchair Jimmy rolling them blocks / My momma's used to holding Berettas when they is hot / Your momma used to peek out the window and call the cops / And the nerve of y'all niggas, saying you started from the bottom / When the real niggas dying, cops kill them, not a crime / All that bullshit you selling, real niggas never buy / Uh, I got word from the six, niggas say you testify."

Meek Mill dissed Drake two days earlier at the Charlotte, North Carolina stop of the tour.

The rappers have released three diss tracks between them and multiple jabs including Drake's performance at OVO fest.

The beef was ignited last month when Meek Mill accused Drake of using a ghostwriter.

“BET: Uncut” is Officially Returning on August 11th

ust two weeks ago, we learned Viacom Networks was looking to resurrect the popular BET: Uncut series – which instantly became one of the most talked about things on social media last month. We're assuming BET is trying to capitalize on #BlackTwitter and has announced that the late night video block is returning to TV this August 11th.

This marks the first time the series will air on the network since its cancellation in 2006, but will see a change in presentation with the addition of uncensored lyrics. Unlike the original program airing at 3:00am ET, the new revival will begin this Tuesday at 11:00pm ET. The scheduled time slot still questions us from a personal standpoint, due to sporting events still airing at the time, but it can always be DVR'd for later.

Lil Scrappy’s Baby Mama Claims Domestic Violence & Files Restraining Order

It seems like this custody battle is getting worse for Lil' Scrappy. There have been claims that Lil' Scrappy's baby mama, Love & Hip Hop's Erica Dixon, has filed a restraining order against Lil' Scrappy, and her reasoning is alleged domestic violence. It remains unclear if the said act of violence was committed against Erica or their daughter Emani. Apparently the judge felt there was enough evidence to grant Erica a temporary restraining order, and Lil' Scrappy has to stay away from Erica or face jail time. Well on the next season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta….

Chris Brown’s Baby Mother Demanding Supervised Visitation

Nia Guzman claims Chris Brown is unfit to watch their daughter by himself.

The ongoing saga between crooner Chris Brown and Nia Guzman, the mother of his daughter Royalty, has continued this month.

According to TMZ, Guzman "fears for the safety" of Royalty when she's alone with Brown, and is asking that a judge require Brown to be around at least one other person when he's with his daughter.

"Chris Brown's baby mama fears for the safety of their daughter when she's alone with him ... so she's asking a judge to ONLY allow him to see 1-year-old Royalty when someone else is around," TMZ reports. "We're told Guzman wants full custody because she thinks Chris is simply too irresponsible to care for a kid on his own and she believes he and his friends all have substance abuse issues. He thinks it's all just a ploy to get more child support."

Brown is currently seeking joint custody of one-year-old Royalty.

Over the past year, Guzman and Brown have continuously gone back and forth over matters concerning child support.

In May, Guzman claimed that the singer stopped paying his monthly child support payments of $2,500. It was also reported that payments from Brown stopped once Guzman demanded $15,000 a month in child support.

And in July, it was reported that Brown filed legal documents to establish paternity and to also have a judge set an amount for child support.

Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports Facing $20 Million Lawsuit

First Jay Z's streaming service Tidal was hit with a $50 million lawsuit by Cash Money's Birdman. Now Hov's other business Roc Nation Sports is facing a $20 million lawsuit from two boxing promoters.

[ALSO READ: Birdman Suing Jay Z's Tidal For $50 Million Over Lil Wayne Album]

According to The New York Daily News, Star Boxing's Joe DeGuardia and Banner Promotions' Artie Pelullo filed a suit last week in New York State Supreme court. DeGuardia and Pelullo claim Roc Nation attempted to steal boxer Demetrius "Boo Boo" Andrade away from them.

The complaint suggests Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports offered Andrade $550,000 to reject a fight DeGuardia and Pelullo negotiated with Showtime. Roc Nation then planned to buy out his contract and become his new promoter, according to the suit.

Andrade pulled out of the Showtime deal, but Roc Nation is being accused of not paying Andrade the $550,000. The lawsuit also claims R.N. never bought out Andrade's contract from DeGuardia and Pelullo.

"Roc Nation's promise to Andrade was made under false pretenses, namely, that Roc Nation was negotiating to purchase Andrade's contract from the promoters and thereafter would negotiate a more lucrative bout for Andrade on HBO," states the lawsuit. "Ultimately, Andrade agreed to Roc Nation's false inducements and spurned the professional boxing match the promoters had negotiated with Showtime."

Andrade is the former World Boxing Organization light middleweight champion. His record currently stands at 21-0, 14 KOs. The Rhode Island native has not fought since June of 2014, and the WBO stripped him of his title for inactivity.

The Roc Nation Sports boxing roster includes Andre Ward, Miguel Cotto, Javier Flores, and more. The management company also represents other athletes such as Kevin Durant, Dez Bryant, Robinson Cano, Victor Cruz, and Skylar Diggins.

Pays Like She Weighs: Kylie Reportedly to Pay $50K for Tyga’s Back Rent

Although in the eyes of the law, Kylie Jenner, is still not considered to be an adult, but her bank account has reportedly saved Tyga, a grown man, from a possible $50,000 lawsuit by his landlord. An insider has reportedly shared with RadarOnline that the KUWTK starlet isn't concerned about that amount of cash and claims, "To her, that amount of money is spent a week on a few purses."

According to the gossip site, the teen-aged tender roni has placed one restriction on Trans-Gate Tyga. The source has revealed that the raven-haired beauty allegedly asked Tyga to vacate his Calabasas, CA crib and move into her home. If it's true, this move will save the "Rack City" rapper over $25,000 a month.

The Kardashian-Jenner clan are purportedly up in arms about Kylie's decision to financially assist her struggling, boo. Given the fact that she'll soon be legally considered a woman, there is not much that they can do.

Is Tyga taking advantage of an impressionable young lady; or, is Captain Kylie putting her cape to good use?
