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.”
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.
50 Cent to Teairra Mari: “Where is my money?!”
Emerging victorious from the revenge porn lawsuit filed against him in May 2018, 50 Cent is wasting no time collecting his debt. Posting multiple photos to Instagram, Fiddy says Teairra better get him his money.
If there is one person you never want to de indebted to, it’s 50 Cent. He has been relentless in his pursuit of payment since winning his lawsuit 4 days ago. Filed in May 2018, Teairra Mari alleged 50 Cent was responsible for the leak of her racy photos and videos. However, a Los Angeles judge dismissed all claims against 50 Cent and ordered Teairra to pay $30,618. Originally, Fiddy demanded $161,550 to cover all legal expenses, but the judge declined, awarding him less than half of the requested amount.
Fiddy’s involvement in the case was questionable by all accounts. At the time, Teairra was dating Akbar Abdul-Ahad, a friend of 50. When she found out her boyfriend was cheating on her, she broke up with him. Shortly after, she saw images and video of herself on Akbar’s Instagram. 50 reposted the images, which Teairra says were uploaded “clearly to humiliate me”. During a press conference, Teairra alongside her representation, Lisa Bloom, released an emotional statement and announced they were pursuing legal action against 50. To counter her claims, Akbar posted audio clips of Teairra allegedly discussing the case, stating Fiddy was targeted for his friendship with her ex.
Now, 50 has taken to IG to get his laughs at Teairra’s expense. His heckling includes captions like, “Now Teairra you can cough up the money or 🧐 you can go with R. Kelly and sh*t in a bucket. LOL”.
In his recent jab, he says Teairra “better catch a date” to run him his coin.
“Not On My Watch” Iyanla Criticizes R Kelly, His Team
Iyanla Vanzant has added herself to the growing number of public figures denouncing R. Kelly and his controversy. During an interview with Sway, Iyanla admitted the singer came to her for help and she declined.
Proving some things are too much even for her, Iyanla told Sway during his morning show that R. Kelly reached out for her services. However, the Fix My Life life coach says R. Kelly “didn’t have…the emotional capacity. Just didn’t have it. And I know, based on what I was looking at — the paces that I would have to take him through — it would have been brutal.”
While she recognizes that R. Kelly is in dire need of mental health care, Iyanla doesn’t agree that he deserves prison. Suggesting incarceration is not the answer, Iyanla said the following on Twitter:
While I do not condone the behavior that has been shown by R. Kelly, it is important that we as a society understand that it represents a symptom of a bigger problem, which is that we do not honor, value, or protect our children.”
Referencing the admission by R. Kelly and supported by his brother Carey’s corroboration, Iyanla thinks of R. Kelly as a damaged boy who grew to become a damaged man. “I would never ever condone, or justify anything that he’s been accused of doing. but locking him up in jail? It’s not the answer… He’s sick… Just like the people he allegedly committed these acts with — they’re sick. This needs to be massive healing — them, him, all of them.”
Iyanla then said that the team surrounding R. Kelly is catching more heat from her than Kelly himself.
“The ones who gave the notes to the high school girls, the ones who sat around the studio knowing there was a bedroom in the middle of the recording studio. The ones who knew those girls were in there, the ones who didn’t care enough about him to hire a tutor to teach him how to read. I have issue with that…as well as with what he did.”
As Lady Gaga, and now Celine Dion, have stepped forward to condemn R. Kelly and remove their collaborative songs from streaming services, Kanye West has come forward…but not in the way you think. During a strange rant in front of a Black choir singing spirituals, Kanye took a moment between their songs to share his opinion. stating:
“They want art from the artist, but anytime they do anything erratic, they just gonna pull up the full documentaries on him. And then, they gonna come with the Michael documentary.”
While the excerpt seen earlier was alarming, Kim Kardashian has taken to Twitter to clear any suspicions that Kanye was referring to R. Kelly.
Kim Kardashian West has since released the full video for context on Kanye’s comments, adding:
“I want to make it very clear, he is not condoning anyone’s actions or unacceptable disgusting behavior. My husband’s words are being taken out of context due to timing.”
Let me be clear: jail is the answer for all of them. Put R. Kelly under the jail with his White Walker brother, Bruce, and call it a damn day. Let the people that helped R. Kelly face justice as well. We are not equipped, at this moment, for alternative justice that includes sipping green tea and sitting in a prayer circle. That’s just my take.
The Girls Are Fighting! Blac Chyna Throws Drink At Alexis Skyy
Love & Hip Hop’s Alexis Skyy got into an altercation with Blac Chyna at a private party in LA. After sharing a section, Skyy claims Chyna threw a drink and told her to leave.
Drop the pin!
Sometimes sh*t goes down when there’s $1000 in the club! Alexis Skyy took to Instagram following an altercation where she alleges Blac Chyna threw a drink at her and used drugs. Skyy claims that out of nowhere, the former Rob & Chyna star just flipped out, causing security to intervene.
Skyy wasn’t one to back down, continuously trying to reach out and touch Chyna, pushing past guests and screaming. After she left the premises, Alexis went on IG Live to share her side of the story, stating:
“I’m sitting down, minding my business, somebody said, ‘Yo, Chyna is at the party, she want to kick it wit you. So I went over there, I sat with her, we kicked it, we had a drink or two. After the second drink, we had some Red Bull, and out of nowhere this bitch starts, ‘Bitch, you gotta get the f—k up out of my section.’ I said, ‘Who the f—k are you talking to?’ She’s like, ‘You gotta get up right now.’”
Alexis continued, “So at that point, she starts throwing a drink, and when you start throwing drinks, I start throwing hands.”
Chyna didn’t post anything about the night aside from an unbothered selfie, but Alexis kept arguing by herself. In a since deleted post, Alexis said “Since you wanna throw a drink & run……I’m not leaving until u walk outside these gates!!! So see me b*tch!!!!”
In bitter baby mama fashion, Rob Kardashian has posted his support for Alexis Skyy, stating she was his WCW. Chyna has not responded to requests for comment.
