Meek Mill’s new track “What’s Free” features Rick Ross, Jay-Z, and subliminals. Throughout the track, the rappers take aim at mumble rappers, lost friends, and the prison industrial complex.

 

Started from Roc Nation

There’s been lots of love lost between Jay-Z and Kanye. Having given the rapper his start as a producer, Jay-Z and Ye have worked together for quite some time. Ye officially signed on to Roc-A-Fella in 2002. By 2007, their working relationship blossomed into a friendship which Kanye discussed in his track “Big Brother.” 2011 saw their collaborative album Watch The Throne.

The future for the two of them looked bright but, things took a turn once Kanye began a relationship with Kim Kardashian. When the couple wed in 2014, Beyoncé sent her thoughts via Instagram. Kanye’s response regarding the power couple’s absence left much to be desired.

“All that, I wouldn’t even speak on. It doesn’t even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that’s all that matters to me.”

Bad Blood

Since then, Kanye and Jay have been at odds. They scrapped the possibility of Watch the Throne 2 and Kanye lamented that their children don’t play together. After the lack of contact following Kim’s robbery in Paris, their relationship dissolved completely. The public meltdown Ye had during a concert and differing political views saw to that. Now, Jay-Z has taken aim at his fallen brother saying:

“No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and Ye

They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA

I ain’t one of these house n*ggas you bought

My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours

My spou- (C’mon man)”

Jay-Z had not been publicly critical of Kanye’s political rants, but a source close to Beyoncé had the tea on their thoughts. According to a source that contacted RadarOnline, Jay and Bey have been done with Kanye Kardashian since October. Fed up with his political “bullshit”, the source said:

“They are outraged over Kanye’s political rants. They think Kanye is a disgrace, and is only doing this for attention. Beyoncé and Jay-Z know that Kanye is seeing a future in politics, but they feel that they cannot associate themselves with them from this point forward. They want nothing to do with either one of them.”

Jay continued to roast Ye in the song with, “Enjoy your chains, what’s your employer name with the hair piece?” He then let the haters know he was “sugar-free, seasoned but I’m salt-free.”

Grab your headphones and get ready, honey. If the rest of the album is as good as this song, it’s going to be one for the books.

Harvey Weinstein Allegedly Reaches $44 Million Lawsuit Settlement

Published

on

According to several news outlets, disgraced entertainment mogul Harvey Weinstein has reached a $44 million settlement with several of his accusers and creditors. With $30 million going to survivors of his depravity and $14 million going to legal fees, Weinstein still isn’t out of the water just yet. The former famed producer is set to go to trial for his many criminal charges in New York this September.

Accused of sexual harassment by more than 80 women, Harvey Weinstein is attempting to settle out of court before standing trial. He is currently only facing criminal charges for sexual violence against two women despite the many complaints waged against him. Since sexual harassment is deemed a civil violation, the outcome of this settlement could set a horrific standard for the treatment of victims of sexual misconduct.

The total sum of $44 million is set to be paid by insurance policies. However, that is contingent upon the finalization of the current agreement. The current deal states $30 million would be split between alleged victims, creditors of his former studio, and some former employees. But there will be no vindication for Weinstein in light of the #MeToo movement which has shed light on many injustices within and outside of the entertainment industry.

As Weinstein continues to hold to his “not guilty” plea, onlookers will have to await the beginning of his criminal trial, which is set for September 9th.

Jussie Smollett’s Case File Unsealed, Prosecution Details Public

Published

on

In a completely unexpected move, a Cook County judge has ordered Jussie Smollett’s case file to be unsealed. The “Empire” actor was facing 16 charges that were all abruptly dropped by prosecution. His attorney then worked to ensure case particulars would never see the light of day under the guise of maintaining Jussie’s privacy. However, Circuit Judge Steven Watkins has stated the media presence of Smollett and his attorneys proclaiming his innocence has made the need for a sealed case file unnecessary. Now, news media outlets are scrambling to uncover the details of Jussie’s hate crime.

What’s Done In The Dark

Thursday, Judge Watkins read from a 10-page ruling, citing the actions of Smollett were “not the actions of a person seeking to maintain his privacy or simply be let alone.” While acknowledging his status as an actor and performer in the public eye, Watkins expressed where he found fault in Jussie’s behavior. Continuing, “it was not necessary for him to address this so publicly and to such an extent,” Watkins ruled the court could not find good cause to keep the case records sealed.

An attorney from Jussie Smollett’s team would not comment on whether they would attempt to appeal Watkins’ decision. But there was little to be gained immediately from the ruling. As news reps wait for the criminal file to be unsealed, they have access to just a 192-page document which primarily contains the media’s objections to the sealing of the file. However, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office believes more shall be revealed June 3rd.

Family Feud: Kevin Hunter Jr Arrested for Assaulting Father

No one wins when the family feuds! Kevin Hunter Jr. has been arrested for assault after getting into an altercation with his father, the estranged husband of Wendy Williams. According to TMZ, the argument popped off after Senior told Junior “he needed to work hard on his own without Wendy’s handouts.” Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Wendy Williams took her son Kevin Jr. to their family home in New Jersey early Wednesday morning. Needing to grab a few things, Junior expected to just run in and pick up his belongings. But things got dicey when he bumped into his father.

While some sources are reporting that the two Kevins haven’t been on good terms, things were amicable between them early on. They left the home and went to a store together, where the argument would later take place.

Arguing in the parking lot over Kevin Sr.’s recent demand for spousal support, they father and son didn’t see eye-to-eye. Senior claimed that his son was being brainwashed by Wendy to reject him and then things turned violent. Kevin Senior placed his son in a headlock leaving Kevin Junior to punch him in the nose to escape the hold.

The argument was a continuation of a discussion of a night earlier that got aggressive. Tuesday evening, Kevin Senior told his son that he needed to carve out his own path for success without Wendy’s money. More than a bit ironic considering Kevin’s affair with Sharina Hudson was funded nearly entirely by Wendy’s coins.

After police were contacted to settle the dispute, Kevin Hunter Jr. was carried away in cuffs and charged with assault. However, Kevin Hunter Sr. claims he isn’t going to pursue the matter legally. In a statement concerning his relationship with his son, all Kevin Hunter Sr had to say was, “I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. This are not always how they appear.”
