Kevin Gates Is Not Opposed To Fighting Women

Kevin Gates is not against sleeping with his cousin, speaking out about Obama, and lately he is not opposed to fighting women either. Gates got into it with a group of girls during his recent Michigan show, and as the night went on he fought with a different girl during the same show. Allegedly, a few girls started grabbing him, and he decided to go after them. His security had to pull him back in from the crowd. Even if the women were harassing Gates, why not let security handle it before deciding to

fight women?!

NBC To Remake “The Wiz” As Live Television Musical

When the holiday season rolls back around at the end of 2015, television viewers will have the chance to see a new version of The Wiz. NBC has announced the network will air a live remake of the musical on

December 3.

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are set to produce. The duo handled the reigns of NBC's previous TV musicals The Sound Of Music and Peter Pan. Tony winner Kenny Leon (Holler If Ya Hear Me, A Raisin In The Sun) will direct the presentation, and Cirque du Soleil is involved in the production as well. The Leon directed Wiz will then move to Broadway in 2016.

"We love this yearly tradition and we're more excited than ever to not only bring another Broadway musical to America's living rooms, but also see it land on Broadway as well," said NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt. "It's a natural next step for our live musical events, and we're so pleased to be in business with this award-winning creative team and Scott Zeiger, president and managing director of Cirque du Soleil's new theatrical division. Cirque's incredible imagination will help bring the fantasy world of Oz vividly to life and give this great show a modern spin on the age-old story we all love."

The original The Wiz: The Super Soul Musical "Wonderful Wizard of Oz" opened on Broadway in 1975. The play won seven Tony Awards including Best Musical. The film adaptation of The Wiz was released in 1978. It featured an all-star cast including Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Nipsey Russell, Ted Ross, Lena Horne, and Richard Pryor.

NBC's decision to recreate The Wiz later this year comes on the heels of the massive success of the Hip Hop musical soap opera Empire. The Fox drama attracted an average of 16.5 million viewers for its two-part season finale on March 18.

Jay Z Says TIDAL Is Like "Fair Trade"

"If you put in work, everyone else, you go to work you get paid," Jay Z says. "That's fair trade. It's what our country is built on."

In the span of a few weeks Jay Z's new artist-owned streaming service has gone from an unknown foreign underdog to the talk of the town.

Yesterday, TIDAL launched with a showy press conference featuring more than a dozen high-profile artists that each reportedly own a stake in the company. Speaking with Billboard about the rollout, Jay Z explained why he chose to invest in streaming, align himself with fellow musicians as owners, and how the music industry has reacted to the push.

"For someone like me, I can go on tour," Jay Z said of a musician's options for making money. "But what about the people working on the record, the content creators and not just the artists? If they're not being compensated properly, then I think we'll lose some writers and producers and people like that who depend on fair trade. Some would probably have to take another job, and I think we'll lose some great writers in the process. Is it fair? No. If you put in work, everyone else, you go to work you get paid. That's fair trade. It's what our country is built on."

When asked if he encountered any major label backlash when presenting the idea around the industry, Jay offered that TIDAL isn't in competition with labels.

"I think the labels were a bit suspicious that we were creating a record company," he said. "It's not a record company; if anything, it's a record store. I have a record company. I don't want another label. I'm happy with what I'm doing. But some were suspicious. We had talks, like, 'Man, you guys also ought to bless this talent. We want you to be involved in this thing as well.' Again, we're not even against other streaming companies. We want everyone to do well. We just want to carve out our section and let our voice be heard."

While millions of dollars are on the line, Jay Z also speaks about TIDAL figuratively as a way of attacking the industry status quo.

"If everyone says, 'Wow, so many things have changed.' This has gotten better," he said. "I like what's happening. If Aloe Blacc and his writers, the guys he wrote with, are not seeing a $4,000 check from 168 million streams. They did their job, they worked, they done it. The people loved it, the people consumed it. Where'd it go? People didn't pay or stream Aloe Blacc's music for it to turn into vapor and go into the air. Where is it?"

T-Pain On Criticism For Using Aaliyah’s Vocals: When Someone Dies People Act L

Many music artists have sampled Baby Girl's voice on their songs. That includes T-Pain. He used Aaliyah's vocals for his The Iron Way mixtape cut "Girlfriend."

Pain hosted a listening session in New York for the project, and the Florida native was asked about receiving criticism for including Aaliyah on one of the tracks. His response drew negative reactions from the people in attendance, and they began to question if he was disparaging the "One In A Million" performer's legacy.

He stated:

I ain't discrediting Aaliyah in any kind of way, but you know how sometimes when people die… You know how somebody's an asshole their whole life, but when you go to their funeral it's like, "This guy is the greatest man that ever walked this Earth." [crowd moans]… You know what I'm saying… I'm not saying Aaliyah…

Because she passed nobody's good enough to be next to her. If she was still alive, then everybody would be saying, "Oh you're trying to be like Beyoncé." But now that she's passed, everybody's like, "Nobody can be like her." That's just how it is, and that's how people are. People just look for s**t to talk about.

Tyrese’s Ex-Wife Talks Years Of Abuse

Recently Tyrese made news for saying he felt his ex-wife would flee the country with their daughter; his ex-wife Norma has decided to speak out to MadameNoire.com about their relationship's turmoil. She stated that Tyrese was both physically and emotionally abusive to her. She also says she felt extremely irresponsible for not speaking up for years when the Ray Rice incident emerged.

"I felt so irresponsible at that moment because I wasn't taking responsibility as a woman and using my voice to perhaps alleviate those blows. It starts with words and then it becomes physical, but the words are what linger. The physical abuse heals quickly, but the emotional keeps coming back because you're so unsure of yourself."

She plans to start a women's empowerment campaign to help build self-esteem and confidence in women who experience the same issues. She also says despite what Tyrese is telling the public, she has no intention on fleeing the country with their daughter as she would never take her daughter away from her father.

Tyrese stopped by the Breakfast club to talk about several things. He ended up also discussing getting 50% custody of his daughter, if he really felt like his ex-wife would kidnap their daughter and if he abused his ex-wife

Dr. Dre Gave Me "Five Black Eyes," Michel'le Says

The "R&B Divas LA" actress/singer says Dr. Dre gave her "five black eyes" and "a cracked rib."

In a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, Dr. Dre's former girlfriend Michel'le shared gritty details about the abuse she suffered at the hands of the Aftermath Records founder.

While information about the domestic violence has long been public, Michel'le gave a firsthand account of her injuries during her sitdown with The Breakfast Club last week.

When asked about whether they used to "fist-fight," Michel'le said, "Well I tried. I was losing." Recounting her injuries specifically she confirmed that Dre broke her nose with a closed fist.

"I had five black eyes," she also said. "I have a cracked rib, I have scars that are just amazing. It was normal. Everybody that knew, it was the norm."

Recalling the origins of the abuse, Michel'le said Dr. Dre himself cried the first time he hit her.

"I do remember when he first he me," she said. "When he first gave me my very first black eye, we laid in the bed and he cried. He was crying and I was crying 'cause I was in shock and hurt and in pain. I don't know why he was crying, but he said, 'I'm really sorry.' I think that was the only time he ever said he was sorry. And he said, 'I'll never hit you in that eye again, okay?' And I was like, 'Yeah, okay.' And we fell asleep."

After dating Dre, Michel'le was in a relationship with Suge Knight who she said hit her once in their nearly decade-long stint together.

"One of the craziest things he ever did was when he tried to hit me," Michel'le said. "He only tried one time. And he was so strong that he open hand slapped me and threw my whole jaw out of [place]. I had to go to the emergency. He back hand slapped and it wouldn't go back. So I had to finally call him and say, 'You're gonna have to come take me to the emergency.' It was either that or the police was gonna have to take me."

Rich Homie Quan Assaults Security Guard After Being Denied Entry Into Miami Club

Rich Homie Quan allegedly got violent when he was denied entry into Miami's Club Liv at the Fontainebleau.

According to TMZ, the Atlanta native became livid when a security guard told him he could not enter through the VIP entrance because the club was full and that he had to wait in line with the regular folks. The "Walk Thru" rapper reportedly went on a cocky tangent yelling, "I'm Rich Homie Quan and I'm a rich millionaire, bitch. I'm coming through these doors. I'm with Flo Rida!"

A Miami Beach Police report says that Quan then punched the security guard twice, which broke his nose and busted his lip. The guard also said he was bashed in the back of his head by one of the rapper's entourage members.

After the attack, Quan and his crew escaped in a speedboat. Police are looking for him.

'Friday' movie coming back for 4/20

Hi, Felicia!

In honor of 4/20 and the 20th anniversary of the film "Friday," a special director's cut will be shown in 400 theaters nationwide for one night only, Buzzfeed reports.

The film starred Ice Cube as a young man who loses his job and spends a memorable day with his pot smoking/dealing friend Smokey, played by Chris Tucker. It spurred two sequels, "Next Friday" and "Friday After Next."

It's popularity has continued throughout the years, perhaps most famously in the phrase "Bye, Felicia," which is now a part of pop culture.

The phrase has become the ultimate way to dismiss a person or an idea and is based on a scene in which Ice Cube's Craig and Tucker's Smokey reject an attempt by Felicia, played by Angela Means, to borrow a car and some marijuana.

The showing will also include a 24-minute featurette with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast, titled "Friday Straight Up." The 1995 movie soundtrack, which went No. 1, will have a vinyl reissue on April 14.

"For the theaters, for New Line (Cinema), for the fans to want to pay homage to the movie in this way is cool," Ice Cube told Buzzfeed. "It lets you know how much people appreciate it and how much fun it is ... and it lets you know that 'Friday' is now a part of the American fabric."

Lil’ Wayne Reveals That Drake Slept With His Girlfriend In Upcoming Book

Lil' Wayne is reportedly writing a tell-all book and revealing that Drake once betrayed him. TMZ reports that Weezy is shopping around a book proposal to different publishers. In the proposal, the Young Money general claims that Drake slept with his then girlfriend while he was serving time on Rikers Island in New York. Wayne says that Drake visited him and told him "Yeah, it's true. Don't f–k with her like that cause I did f–k her."

After hearing that his girlfriend smashed the homie, Wayne writes that he was distraught.

"This is the type of s–t that a man never wants to find out when he's locked up. Or, maybe so, cause only God knows what I would have done if I wasn't locked up right now…"I woke up feeling f—d up about the f—d up day that I had … finding out that she f—d Drake was the absolute worst thing I could've ever found out…"As a man, honestly, that s–t hurt … and not because it was Drake, it could have been any man. It would've hurt the same."

Wayne writes that his girlfriend said she slept with Drake the day before she met him. He said that he was so depressed that he could not leave his cell for days.

There is no word on what else will be revealed in the book, like details on his current feud with Birdman.

A$AP Ferg: “Racism Been Over”

A$AP Ferg says Missy Elliott is one of his "biggest inspirations in life," praises J Dilla.

During a recent appearance on NPR's Microphone Check, A$AP Mob lyricist A$AP Ferg touched on a number of topics including Missy Elliott being one of his inspirations, being a current student of J Dilla, and his thoughts on racism.

In regards to racism, the Harlem, New York rapper revealed that in his opinion, it no longer exists. He then explained that it's classism and who has "the biggest money," that takes precedence in today's society.

"Racism been over," A$AP Ferg said, according to NPR.org. "It's the old people that keep on holding on to it. We don't hold on to that s—-. We don't know racism. We all like having — like my brother had white — my little brother had white girlfriends. And that's regular…I think that's classism. I don't think it's racism…Like, who got the biggest money. So we gon' keep these — we gon' oppress these people. They don't get nothing. And it's a pyramid. That's how the pyramid work. You need — everybody plays a position. You need all of these soldiers or whatever to keep the big man up there. I want to be the big man. I don't want to be like these guys holding the big man up."

Prior to sharing his thoughts on the absence of racism, A$AP Ferg referred to fellow rapper Missy Elliott as one of the "biggest inspirations in life." He also revealed that at this particular moment he's more concerned with absorbing knowledge from Missy than hopping on a collab with the rapper.

"She's been one of my biggest inspirations in life," he said. "Way before I was rapping, I was looking at Missy videos and loving her music. And just the visuals, I never imagined that I would one day be doing music and, you know, dope visuals like that as well. So just for us to share that moment with one another, that was the biggest thing for me…I'm not pressed to do music or nothing like that when it comes to these type of artists that I look up to because I have to — you have to understand I'm not — I have to just jump in the passenger seat when I'm with Missy or Timbaland and just learn. You know what I'm saying? Cause they got a lot of knowledge for me to absorb. So, I don't want to just be so quick to get a song done and then just keep bouncing with life. I want to enjoy this — I want this moment to last forever."

Another artist discussed during Ferg's interview with Microphone Check was the late J Dilla. The New York City wordsmith admitted that he's "still studying the guy," but also praised the producer for his innovativeness.

"Well, I'm still a student when it comes to J Dilla," A$AP Ferg said. "I'm still getting into his art and everything. But people say he was a master at mixing and looping beats, like before you had all of these new programs and everything like that. So I just love that about him. Like, he was real innovative and he was pushing the culture in that way. But I'm still studying the guy. And I'm very very curious to know what everybody love about him."

Migos Compare Themselves To Outkast

Is the ATL trio better than the ATL duo?

Migos is at the forefront of the "New Atlanta" movement. In just two years, they've coined their own flow, landed high-profile features from Justin Bieber and Drake, and they've even drawn comparisons to pop icons.

Now, in a new interview with Paper Magazine, the trio from Gwinnett County, Georgia is likening themselves to action heroes and ATL legends.

"We like the Transformers, we come together from different scenes," Takeoff says.

"We kind of like the new Outkast," Quavo adds. "They're comparing us to the Beatles. They're comparing us to legendary people. We didn't grow up listening to them but we knew of these people. We just wanted to be in that same name bracket. The people we grew up watching and listening to -- Outkast, Gucci Mane, Hot Boys, Lil Wayne, Master P -- all that type of stuff, we took those styles and made it our own."

Migos is also finding new ways to differentiate themselves. In addition to revealing that they take style cues from Slick Rick, the trio told Paper Mag that they currently have their own strain of marijuana.

"In Cali, we got the Migo Gas!," Takeoff says. "We got our own strain in California, man. Migo Gas."

Migos' debut studio album Y.R.N. Tha Album is scheduled to be released on June 16.

Black UVA Student Beaten By Police

A black University of Virginia student was brutally beaten by police over a ID discrepancy early Wednesday morning, ABC reports.

After 20-year-old Martese Johnson was denied entry into a bar on St. Patrick's Day for allegedly trying to use a fake ID, Alcoholic Beverage Control agents approached him and decided to arrest him. During his arrest his injuries were sustained, according to officials. The ABC agency, who is enforces alcohol laws, would not reveal any other details around the arrest.

A smartphone video shows the UVA junior being detained by the agents as a bystander screams "His head is bleeding!" and Johnson shouts expletives while on the ground. "I go to UVA you f—-g racists!" he yelled.

Students who witnessed the beating said that Johnson never resisted arrest and became injured when he was slammed into the ground. In a letter written by concerned students who witnessed this, they revealed that Johnson needed 10 stitches and described the officers' behavior as "animalistic" and "insensitive."

"After Martese was denied entry to the bar, he found himself suddenly flung to the ground, " read the letter."The brutish force used resulted in his head and bodily injuries. His treatment was unprovoked as he did not resist questioning or arrest. In confusion, with blood painting his face and creating a pool on the bricks of the corner, he yelled out for mercy. Though he lay bleeding and crying out, officers continued to hold him to the pavement, pinning him down, twisting his arm, with knees to his back until he was handcuffed."

Johnson was charged with public intoxication and obstruction of justice. According to the ABC agency, Johnson was treated for his injuries at the UVA Hospital Emergency Department.

In a statement, Johnson's lawyer Daniel P. Watkins revealed that Johnson is a double major studying Italian and Media Studies and is a member of the Eta Sigma chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.

The violent arrested sparked a rally at UVA's campus, which Johnson attended.

UVA president Teresa Sullivan released a statement about the incident.

"The safety and security of our students will always be my primary concern, and every member of our community should feel safe from the threat of bodily harm and other forms of violence," Sullivan wrote. "Today, as U.Va. students, faculty, and staff who share a set of deeply held values, we stand unified in our commitment to seeking the truth about this incident. And we stand united in our belief that equal treatment and equal justice are among our fundamental rights under the law."

Thug also named Michael Jackson but he's following in the footsteps of Wayne. On Tuesday (March 17), Thug shared an Instagram video of a remix to Lil Wayne's "Grindin."

Chris Brown Accuses Karrueche Of Turning Into A Thot

Photo via Karrueche's Instagram

Chris Brown has already showed us and even let us know on radio interviews that he doesn't know how to act on social media. He even went as far as to say that he will let people know how he feels even if he deletes it later. Not too long ago Brown and Karrueche got into a social media war, where Brown exposed their threesomes and accused Karrueche of messing with Drake. For the millionth time Karrueche said only one could take so much, but still ended up taking the singer back. After news broke of Brown's break baby, Karrueche claimed once again that she was done and has been going two weeks strong LOL. Karrueche recently posted the above photo on her Instagram with the caption "I'm president of the itty Bitty Committee." Brown had to comment on his former beau's post saying, "Thirst trap 101. continue to be a lady beautiful… U are perfect… Don't let the Thot form from anger." Should Karrueche or anyone else take advice from Breezy? LOL.

Is Blue Ivy’s Entourage Causing Preschool Problems?

Photo Via Beyonce's Instagram

Princess Blue Ivy is making some people unhappy.. According to In Touch Weekly Beyoncé and Jay Z's three-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, has her own entourage taking her to and from preschool — and the other parents are not happy about it! "A security motorcade drops her off and picks her up from school," an insider at Blue's West Hollywood preschool said "There are two cars and three bodyguards!" Allegedly Blue's entourage is causing traffic jams every morning and afternoon. "Beyoncé and Jay Z have made things a huge hassle," says the insider, adding, "Other celebrity kids get dropped off by one driver, not an entire staff." So the question is, is there security on hand all day outside of the school for Blue too? Are we the only ones that are surprised Blue goes to a regular preschool? Is this too much or just what is needed? After all little Blue is the offspring of Jay Z and Queen Bey!.

Young Thug Disses Rich Homie Quan Onstage & Then Clarifies

Young Thug calls out "Bitch Homie Quan" at a live show and then says there's no beef.

After putting out a good amount of music together through 2014 Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug seem to be on the outs.

Despite their shared success, Rich Homie Quan recently announced plans to distance himself from Rich Gang to focus on his solo career. Apparently in response, Young Thug dropped Rich Homie Quan's name as a diss at a recent live show and then backtracked on Instagram, claiming there's no beef between him and the Atlanta rapper.

While onstage during a stop on his tour with Travi$ Scott, Young Thug seems to reference Rich Homie Quan's public statement about stepping away from Rich Gang before calling him a "stupid lame" and then worse.

"Speaking of horses," Thug says. "You saw the fucking video, man. This stupid lame, that nigga tripping. That Bitch Homie Quan."

Suge Knight Says He’s Legally Blind In Left Eye

Sighs…here come the "I'm legally blind" jokes and references…

Suge Knight's defense in his murder case will be that he is legally blind in his left eye due to glaucoma, a side effect of diabetes.

Knight's attorney Matthew Fletcher is saying Knight hit the men because he didn't have a clear view of them.

TMZ reports:

"When Suge pulled back and struck Cle "Bone" Sloan the first time … he didn't have a clear view of his left side, which may have prevented him from turning left, which would have allowed him to escape down the street.

In addition, Terry Carter was on Suge's left side when he re-entered the parking lot, so Suge may not have clearly seen him before striking him with the truck.

Suge also claims Carter screamed something to the effect of, "Should I shoot him?" Fletcher says because of Suge's vision problem, he couldn't see that Carter was not brandishing a weapon."

This died just can't stay out of trouble. Always got some s*** goin! Anywho…P.O.P. Hol it down! (sorry I had to)

Chris Brown Responds To Nasty Social Media Comments About Alleged Daughter

Chris Brown has been hushed ever since it was alleged that he fathered a nine-month old daughter while in a relationship with his longtime girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. Though he has not addressed it publicly, trolls on Twitter and Instagram did and they have been bashing him endlessly. Breezy's been keeping busy while on the Between the Sheets tour with Trey Songz but decided to blow off some steam on his Instagram about all the hate being thrown his way.

In a now deleted post, he still did not say anything about his alleged daughter, but did have a mouthful for his naysayers.

chris brown IG

"Some of you ignorant human beings on here have yet to grasp the concept of your own lives," Breezy wrote in the caption. "This is for encouragement for anyone dealing with their own issues. Half of yall pages are private and the others look so damn depressing I understand why u feel like u have the right to say some of the most outrageous things possible. U don't have to like me but one thing is for sure… You all are looking though.. That's the diffeence between leadership and being a cancer to this planet. We have no real leaders or people to join together for great things anymore. At least not the youth… We will one day drown in a pool of our own negativity. Be blessed or be quiet."

The Between The Sheets tour wraps up on Mar. 19th in Hampton, VA.

Pharrell & Robin Thick Ordered To Pay $7.3 Million To Marvin Gaye's Estate Due T

Pharrell said the songs share "feel."

Pharrell, who recently made his G I R L album available for streaming online, spoke with XXL about his legal battle with Marvin Gaye's estate over Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines."

"I have the utmost respect, the most, utmost respect for Marvin Gaye and his music and he is one of the patriarchs," Pharrell says in the interview. "He is one of the best. But here's the thing—you can't trademark a groove. If I play a song—which a lot of my new hip-hop, rap records are—that's done in 6/8 time signature, Charlie Parker's family is not going to sue me for that. Do you understand what I'm saying? If I do a salsa beat right now, I know that Ricky Martin's family is not going to come looking for me.

"That's what we're dealing with," Pharrell continues. "We're dealing with the idea that someone feels like a groove is proprietary, and it's not. Music is, and the notes are, and when you look at the sheet music, then you'd know. And just for a bit of humor, the percussion that I use on 'Blurred Lines,' aside from the music notation being completely different, completely different—the sheet music is available online, by the way—but the percussion, I was trying to pretend that I was Marvin Gaye, and what he would do had he went down to Nashville and did a record with pentatonic harmonies, and more of a bluegrass chord structure. So unfortunately there's no comparison between the minor, bluesy chords he was playing and my major, bluegrass-y chords, and that's very plain to see for anyone who can read music."

In 2013, "Blurred Lines" was at the center of legal discussions between Pharrell, Robin Thicke and Marvin Gaye's family. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a lawsuit was filed on behalf of "Blurred Lines" makers in a California federal court in August. "Plaintiffs, who have the utmost respect for and admiration of Marvin Gaye, Funkadelic and their musical legacies, reluctantly file this action in the face of multiple adverse claims from alleged successors in interest to those artists," the lawsuit states. "Defendants continue to insist that plaintiffs' massively successful composition, 'Blurred Lines,' copies 'their' compositions."

On Monday (March 3), Pharrell spoke with HipHopDX about how he feels when he is referred to as a genius.

"A genius denotes someone who knows a lot on their own—self-contained," Pharrell said in the HipHopDX exclusive. "And I'm not. All of my work is a direct reaction to meeting all these very interesting people with whom I've collaborated. I've learned so much about their processes and who they were, and their vibes have inspired me. In that case, I just could not take authorship for my path. I know that I've elected to take some of the choices, turns and the direction that I've taken. But I know at the same time, there are these integral people in our lives from time to time who come in, give us direction and guide us. They tell us which way to go, and those are the people I feel like are just as much… They share the authorship for all of my successes...So I'm not comfortable in that. I would say I've had a lot of really, really, really good help. And I'm just thankful that people have seen something in me, and I was smart enough to allow them to guide me in the right direction. That's the closest to that term I could ever come to. I'm smart enough to listen to other people, but nowhere near genius."

Nick Gordon Says He Hates Bobby Brown In Dr. Phil Interview

Nick Gordon is spinning out of control. He sat down for a interview-turned-intervention with Dr. Phil and a preview has been released.

In the clip, Gordon is distraught over Bobbi Kristina still being in a coma and the loss of her mother Whitney Houston, who died in 2012.

"I miss Krissi and Whitney so much! I want them back," he said tearfully.

Gordon, who was being consoled by his mother Michelle, also revealed how he really feels about his girlfriend's father. "I hate Bobby Brown!," he shouted at Dr. Phil.

Bobby Brown's sister, Leolah, has cautioned Dr. Phil to not allow Gordon to tell his side of the story.

"Dr. Phil, With all due respect, Nick Gordon is under investigation for the attempted murder of my niece Bobby Kristina Brown," she said in a Facebook post. "We have strong evidence of foul play. Until this investigation is completed by law enforcement, I would ask that you or anyone else not provide this individual a platform to spin this situation to his benefit."

The 25-year-old stormed out after the TV doctor cautioned him to go to rehab, even though he obliged after the taping. The full interview will air on Dr. Phil on Mar. 11th.

Chris Johnson injured in fatal drive-by shooting

Jets running back Chris Johnson was shot in the shoulder in the early hours of Sunday morning in his hometown of Orlando, Fla.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said in a statement that one man died and two, including Johnson, were injured in a drive-by shooting at 4:09 a.m.

A source close to Johnson said he is in the hospital and is expected to be fine. Johnson spent last season with the Jets after six with the Titans. The Jets declined to pick up his option last month, making Johnson a free agent on Tuesday.

According to the Sheriff's statement, deputies responded to a shooting call and found the driver of a Jeep dead inside. Johnson and another man were on the sidewalk with gunshot wounds. The victims said a vehicle pulled up beside them at a red light and opened fire on the Jeep, according to the deputies.

The deceased driver was identified as Dreekins Oriko Johnson and the other injured man is named Reggie Johnson. It is unclear if they are relatives of Chris Johnson.

No arrests have been made.

Johnson had been arrested in January on a misdemeanor gun charge after he was pulled over in Orlando and police discovered two guns in his car that were not locked up properly.

Maino Beats Female Assault Charge

Maino was accused of sexual assault and all but found guilty in the public's collective eye. That notion has changed and the rapper was exonerated today.

Mellanie Monro accused the Brooklyn representative but now she has admitted to lying.

"Violence against women is an important issue in today's society," said Nicole Manini, Esq. of the Blanch Law Firm to hiphopwired.com. "As a female attorney, I find it completely offensive to actual victims of domestic violence and assault that Ms. Hennigan (aka Mellanie Monroe) would make these allegations against our client knowing that they were not true. False allegations of abuse and assault diminish the severity of such crimes real victims face and increase the fear that they will not be believed should they come forward against their assailants."

The charges against Maino and co-defendant Richard Holt have been dropped.

Hennigan was seen on cellphone using the N-word towards the men and then they sprayed her with champagne.

Erica Mena Boycotts LHHNY Reunion

Welp if Erica Mena is one of your Ratchet Love and Hip-Hop New York faves you may want to start looking for another.

The reality star has had enough and decided to skip out on the reunion opting to celebrate her sons' birthday in Florida.

Mena feels that since she's about to become Bow's wifey, she has a certain image to uphold.

Bossip reports:

""A lot of people cast this season were cast because of beef with her," a source close to Shad Moss' fiancé told Bossip, noting that Chrissy, Cyn Santana and Jhonni Blaze all had problems with Mena. "Erica was pretty much sick of the deflecting and the projecting of off other people's negativity."

Mena also has a history of turning up at the Love and Hip Hop reunion shows. Just last year, she laid hands on former cast member Nya Lee. With Blaze and others gunning to fight her, Mena simply decided she's not about that life.

"She's about to be somebody's wife," the source told Bossip, "and she didn't want to put herself in the type of space where that could happen."

Mena skipped shooting the Love and Hip Hop New York reunion Tuesday, and instead went to Florida to celebrate her son's birthday. Mena and show creator Mona Scott-Young privately filmed her portion of the reunion last week."

Threesomes, Fake Friends, & A Baby More To The Chris Brown Baby Mama Drama

Soooooooooooooo it seems to be MORE to the Chris Brown

BABY MAMA DRAMA. So out of nowhere, a 9 month old baby has emerged by model Nia Gonzalez. The crooner's on and off girlfriend Karrueche took to her twitter today to say that there is only so much one can take and she wishes Chris and his family the best because she doesn't want to participate in any baby mama drama. But there is allegedly more to this story. Rumor has it that Karruehe knew about their short lived love affair and that Gonzalez and Chris' ex boo Rihanna were friends. It has even been said that Karrueche's BFF Christina Millian is friends with the girl too. So when this baby was conceived were Chris, Karrueche, and Nia having threesomes or was this one of the infamous "celebrity break" babies? The problem with the break baby theory is Brown and Karreuche's breaks usually only last 24 hours. Karrueche was asking who is Nia, but apparently she has been hanging out with her lol. Even though Karrueche says she's done with Brown (for the millionth time) we believe she will be babysitting the child next week. We'll keep you posted.

The ATL-bred artist revealed the news by sharing two filtered photos from the set of the film via Instagram. In the first picture, Tip and castmates Jackie Long, Albert Daniels and Jason Weaver appear to be taking direction from the movie's director, Chris Robinson.

Tip captioned the image: "#ATL2 Get Ready."

The second photo depicts T.I. alongside his love interest (in the movie) Lauren London.

"Shad&New-New #ATL2 #KeepWatching" he wrote.

It has been nearly a decade since the film was released in '06. The movie served as T.I.'s first foray into acting.

While the film wasn't a major blockbuster success, it earned more than $21 million in theaters.

50 Cent: "Suge Was Going To Kill" Dr. Dre

The G-Unit rapper also says he considered buying Murder Inc.

G-Unit members 50 Cent, Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks appeared on The Breakfast Club yesterday (March 3). 50 detailed his relationship with Dr. Dre, which he would no longer say is a friendship.

"I don't call to talk to him for no reason," he says. "I think that relationship was business. For a long time, I was a New York Knick player in the middle of the LA locker room. Interscope was the West Coast when it was East Coast-West Coast going on, and I never really saw them respond properly to Game's disrespect when it happened 'cause they had some sort of allegiance to the West or something. I was like, ' You know I wrote the records?'"

50 also says that his strained relationship with Dr. Dre's business partner, Jimmy Iovine, didn't help the situation.

"Overall, I think the disconnect between me and Jimmy created the distance between me and Dre," 50 says.

Tony Yayo also expresses his discontent with Dr. Dre's support of G-Unit.

"We beat somebody up for Dr. Dre," he says. "I could say it now. No disrespect to LA, but it was a whole bunch of New York dudes beating somebody up for Dre. He's cool. I like his music and everything. I just feel when you beat somebody up I feel like they owe you a little bit."

50 Cent also suggests that Suge Knight was plotting to kill Dr. Dre because of Tupac's success at Death Row while Dre wasn't as productive. "Suge was gonna kill Dre."

"How do I keep him?" 50 asks pretending to be Suge later in the interview. "Maybe I'll give him Dre's half. I don't know. Something might have to happen to Dre."

50 Cent also says he was intrigued by rumors that he bought Murder Inc. He thought it would be a good way to end his beef with Ja Rule.

"It even made me look at what it would cost," 50 said. "I ain't gonna lie. I was like, 'Yo how much is it? How much would it be?' It would be cool to do that 'cause you can't. Just finish it off. In the laws it says when you destroy, destroy completely."

Chris Brown A Father?

Welp. All that talk of monogamy is out the window clearly if this is true.

TMZ is reporting that Breezy is the father of a 9-month-old baby girl.

"The baby's mother is a 31-year-old former model named Nia — who we're told has known Chris for several years.

Sources connected to both Nia and Chris tell us they are on very good terms — however they're not together romantically. We're told 25-year-old Chris is happy about being a father.

It does not appear there is a formal child support order in place — and we do not know the nature of any informal terms of support."

If there is any truth to this, we wonder how Karrueche feels about being a step-mommy…

“Empire” Star Jussie Smollett Gets Record Deal With Columbia

It almost seems as if art fully imitates life as one young star of Fox's hit show "Empire" now has a record deal.

Jussie Smollett, who plays the homosexual singer Jamal, revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he signed on the line with Columbia Records.

"There will be a Jussie Smollett album. I signed to Columbia. So darling [Laughs] I'm label mates with Beyoncé and Adele and Barbra Streisand," he said in the candid conversation.
Jussie said that he wouldn't reflect the reality depicted in "Empire," but rather a flavor all his own.

"It's going to be a whole different thing. Now, the Empire family will still have something to do with it. I would love for Terrence to come and oversee the production of all of the music," he said. "And I would love for Timbaland to come on and Jim Beanz. We've all talked and they're all down to work on it."

"Empire" has continually made gains in ratings and now clocks in 16.1 million viewers as of last week. The success hasn't fully been realized by Jussie.

It hasn't clicked yet. The other day I went to Whole Foods and bought some chewable Vitamin C and got mobbed by like 15 girls. Today I was seven minutes late to work and I'm never late to work. I have been late to work two times," he said. "But a van of women were in Whole Foods and I was there to get my salad for lunch. Literally, they come up and they're like "Jamal!" And I was late because they had to stay there and try to figure out how to use their camera phones."

"Empire" co-star Malik Yoba outted Jussie as gay in real life after the 25-year-old had previously been non-committal in interviews.

Ludacris & Wife Eudoxiee Expecting Their First Child

Via Eudoxiee's Instagram

My, my, my the Bridges family keeps growing. As we know Ludacris now has a one year old "break" baby with Tamika Fuller, but it seems as if the Bridges will have another baby running around as it looks like wife Eudoxiee is now pregnant. Both Ludacris and Eudoxiee took to their Instagram pages to post the same picture of Ludacris kissing Eudoxiee's stomach with the caption "Beautiful day on the beach." In the picture it is very evident that Eudoxiee has a new baby bump. There has been speculation that she was pregnant over the last few weeks as she's been wearing only baggy clothing and posting less full body shots than usual. Hey, Hip Hop siblings being born close in age by different women is nothing new. Look at Lil' Wayne and Diddy LOL.

Brownstone Singer Charmayne “Maxee” Maxwell Dead From Fall

Charmayne "Maxee"

Maxwell, a member of the 1990's R&B group Brownstone, passed away on Friday night, according to TMZ.

The site reports Maxwell's husband Carsten Soulshock came home and discovered the singer unconscious and bleeding. Paramedics were called to the home, and Maxwell was rushed to Cedars Sinai Hospital. Unfortunately, she died from loss of blood on the way to the facility.

Authorities believe the fatal gash on Maxwell's neck was the result of a broken wine glass. It is believed she fell and cut herself on the shattered glass. Police do not suspect foul play.

There are conflicting reports regarding Maxwell's death. BET is reporting she died in Denmark. There were also sites posting rumors Maxwell was suicidal before the incident. According to The Grio, her brother Brandon refuted the suicide claims on Twitter.

Brownstone is perhaps best well known for their 1995 Grammy nominated single "If You Love Me." Other R&B chart hits include "Grapevyne" and "I Can't Tell You Why." The group's debut album From the Bottom Up was certified platinum.

Rich Homie Quan Says He Feels Good About Whites Using The N-Word

Rich Homie Quan says he has no problem with white people using the N-word when reciting his lyrics.

Rich Homie Quan has been part of many hits over the past few years and definitely knows the DNA to a catchy song. One of those catchy joints is YG's "My Hitta," on which he was featured.

Recently sitting down with Vlad TV, the Atlanta native talked about white people using the N-word when reciting lyrics, as the uncensored version of the West Coast hit requires you to use it as you sing along to the hook.

"I feel good [about it], man," Quan said when asked about whites using the N-word. "Because it's that title trap. That's what we want people to do, it's like crossover music. I feel good man, I don't look nothing by it. I [don't have a bias] so it's good man. You make music so people recite it."

The former Rich Gang member was also asked whether racism in the south is more prevalent than other areas. He responded by explaining that he himself has not experienced very much racism in his life.

"I wouldn't say racism is worse in the south only because it was so hard in the south," he said. "I think people are nicer in the south now and they don't really go back to those days. I've seen very little racism since I've been living." Quan continued by saying he has experienced the most amount of racial tension in airports.

Also during the interview, Rich Homie Quan talked about how "My Hitta" came together and noted that Jeezy was the one who introduced him to YG.
