Gunfire at Tekashi Video Shoot
Tekashi and Kanye West were at a video shoot in Beverly Hills when shots rang out at 10:25PM
At the stage for the video, a rented $80 million estate, approximately 8 shots were fired. Although no one was injured, there was damage to the home. At least one bullet destroyed a bedroom window.
Production was halted immediately and Kanye left the scene unscathed. Nicki was supposed to be at the shoot as well but she had not yet made it to the site.
The attack was allegedly a drive-by.
This is the 3rd shooting targeting Tekashi since his post-sentencing celebration. The rapper was charged with the use of a child in a sexual performance. Having only received a sentence of four years probation, it appears someone is unhappy with the judgment.
It is suspected that the shooting could be the result of a beef between Tekashi and YG. The two have been at odds since a video surfaced of Tekashi asking a fan to name a YG song.
Flop or Bop?: Blac Chyna Releases Single
Featuring Yo Gotti and Jeremih, Blac Chyna makes her Rap debut and fans are undecided.
When Chyna posted a photo of her in the studio a year ago, we all thought she was just posing for the gram. Let’s be honest. We’ve known Chyna as a staple in hip-hop but never on the opposite end of the mic. After suffering through some of these Soundcloud rappers, it’s hard to be excited about any new music. In interview Chyna did with XXL a year ago, she stated:
“When I do drop my music, I just don’t want it to be like ‘Okay, Chyna’s taking this for granted, she’s not serious about this.’ I want people to know that I am serious about this and I want to show my progression and my growth and whatnot.”
Many thought that maybe after dating so many rappers, Chyna had picked up a bit of their skill. Unfortunately, most of Twitter seems to agree that Chyna’s debut track is not it. Check out her verse below.

I’m not going to lie, she has potential. Her verse is pretty on brand. After all, she is rapping about scamming:
Talk that talk, but when it’s time to pop a band
You hop up here and you shook
Nothing better than them dollars, man
I fuck up more than your retirement
Chyna has tracks in the works with Swae Lee and has producers lined up to collaborate with her. Showing no signs of disappearing anytime soon, this single is not the last we’ll see of her.
Check out the rest of the song here.
YG’s Uber Slams into Someone’s Front Yard
The “Big Bank” rapper is lucky to be alive after his Uber crashes into a San Fernando Valley front yard. TMZ was able to capture footage of YG standing outside of the car looking confused and pictures of the SUV after the crash.
YG was riding in the backseat of the vehicle and didn’t sustain any injuries. No other vehicles were involved in the crash and there is no knowledge about how the driver got off the road or what was wrong with him.
As far as we know no one is injured.
