A post shared by D-Nice (@dnice) on

During a CBS This Morning interview, D-Nice shared, “I literally just played what feels good. I wanted people to feel good. I wanted their experience to be lifted through music, just one song at a time.” And he’s done just that. While on live, his comment section is a constant stream of cheers, shout outs, and music-lovers asking, “Where the drinks at?” It feels like the best VIP section you’ll ever experience but from your living room. 

“No matter what your problems are, you can put on a good tune and it just takes you away and I was trying to do that,” he explained. “It wasn’t just the music, it was the whole experience and everyone escaping what’s going on today just for a few hours.”

While some of his neighbors have complained about the noise, D-Nice is committed to keeping the party going as the universal language of music is playing a vital role in keeping us all connected.

Jay Electronica & Joe Budden Used Their Twitter Fingers to Exchange Insults

mm

Published

It took 10 years for Jay Electronica to release his highly-anticipated album, A Written Testimony. While some are singing his praises, others are incredibly disappointed. One such person is former rapper turned media personality, Joe Budden. 

Budden used his platform, The Joe Budden Podcast episode Dry Snitching to express his disappointment. Budden proclaimed, “You’ve been missing for ten years- which is cool, ’cause you’ve been living life. But that confidence that I thought you might’ve been living life with is suppressed…that lens that I’m looking through paints the story of a different MC. And that MC is one that would get smacked around by Hov on every song.”

In response, Electronica took to Twitter and posted a video clip of DaBaby saying “fuck it,” directing the tweet at Rory, one of the co-hosts on Budden’s podcast.

Shortly after, Budden responded referring to Jay-Z’s performance on A Written Testimony, where he appears on eight of ten tracks. “I never got absolutely mopped around on my own project either… @ me, not Rory.”

Here’s how the rest of that conversation went:

The tirade ended with Electronica demanding credit for “lighting up” the podcast episode.

Electronica released A Written Testimony on Friday, March 13th. It’s his first solo album after more than ten years of delays with features by Jay-Z, The-Dream and Travis Scott, with additional production by The Alchemist, No ID, Swizz Beatz and Hit-Boy.

Wendy Williams Believes Nicki Minaj Damaged Her Brand By Marrying Kenneth Petty

mm

Published

on

We all know Wendy Williams is not one to hold her tongue during “Hot Topics.” Tuesday’s episode was no different as she addressed the recent headlines regarding Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty. During the segment, Williams discussed Petty’s current legal issues, which include a recent arrest for failure to register as a sex offender in the state of California. After briefing the audience on what transpired over the last few days, Williams pretty much implied that Minaj damaged her brand by marrying a convicted attempted rapist and murderer.

“You should’ve never married him, because now you’ve ruined everything about what your brand could be, again,” according to Williams. “You’re never gonna stand a chance when you’re with a man who pulls a knife at rape point … a molester … a registered sex offender. You’re never going to stand a chance with John Q. Public. Because there’s only one thing worse than touching children and pulling knives, and that’s murder. By the way, he did go to jail for manslaughter.” Williams then instructed her staff to “get to digging.”

According to TMZ , 41-year old Petty has officially taken care of the matter by registering as a sex offender following his arrest on federal charges for violating California’s Megan’s Law. However, that won’t keep Williams from dishing on the topic as she vowed to address it further on Wednesday’s show. 

Petty’s sex offender status is connected to his 1995 conviction of first-degree attempted rape for which he served a four year sentence. In addition to the 1995 conviction, Petty also served time for manslaughter in connection with a shooting in New York in 2002. He was released from prison in 2013. 

While some feel Williams should remain silent on the matter following the abrupt end of her marriage to ex-husband Kevin Hunter, others feel like its all fair in love and entertainment. 

What are your thoughts? Should Williams be the one to voice her concerns regarding Minaj’s marriage? Has Nicki damaged her brand?
