Kanye Feuds with Drake

mm

Published

on

A flurry of tweets erupted from Kanye West’s Twitter account. Alleging Drake threatened him, Kanye says Drake has gone too far.

“No tough talk either”

At 10pm EST, Kanye began his tweet streak, calling out Drake’s shady behavior. In the 4-hour-long tirade, he implied Drake was responsible for the hospitalized Pusha T concertgoer that rushed the stage. He also credited Drake for the death of XXXTentacion and arrest of Tekashi69. Saying “I got a family and kids”, it seems Kanye may fear for his safety.

“I need my apologies now!”

Calling him “disrespectful to all people with mental health conditions”, Kanye implored Drake to work things out. In the past, Drake has held an extensive feud with Kid Cudi, who famously struggles with depression. Going for the low blow after being name-checked for having ghost writers, Drake said this in “Two Birds, One Stone”:

“You stay xanned and perc’d up, so when reality set in, you don’t gotta face/Look what happens soon as you talk to me crazy/Is you crazy?”

The track, released while Kid Cudi was seeking care in a rehabilitation facility, sent him into a tizzy, promising retaliation upon release. But Cudi would need to aim twice if he wanted retribution, as Kanye was credited as a writer for the diss. Despite championing for the normalization of mental health care discussion in recent years, Kanye does not have clean hands either.

While no one is entirely sure what caused the beef, tweets about 2 hours into Kanye’s rant hinted why. Blaming Travis Scott, Drake drew his ire for dissing him in “Sicko Mode”. Claiming “Trav is my family and let this met throw sneak disses at me for clout”, Kanye says he heard there was more to Drake’s verse insulting him.

Drake Ki Ki-ing

Through it all, Drake seemed to be amused by his meltdown, allegedly sending “purple emojis” to Kim. He even requested clearance for “Say What’s Real”. Kanye ultimately denied the request for the sample.

Upcoming Diss Track?

Never one to stand idly by when it comes to family, Kim eventually popped out to defend her man.

Completely sidestepping Lil Wayne’s discovery of Drake, many said Kimberly should’ve just sat there and ate her food.

This whole thing is just so messy!!!

While there’s no indication there’s been a resolution to their disagreement, Kanye says “don’t sneak diss or diss at all”.

What do you think about this situation? Is the King of Calabasas really about that action or is he bluffing?

#BBHMM: The Game’s Royalties Seized Until $7.4 Million Judgment Paid

mm

Published

on

The Game’s attempt to avoid paying a $7M judgment after losing a sexual assault case has been put to a halt by a judge. Ruling in favor of Priscilla Rainey, who accused the rapper of sexual battery, a judge has seized the royalties of The Game’s catalogue until the debt is paid.

In 2015, Rainey lodged a complaint that the rapper assaulted her, forcing his hand beneath her dress to touch her bare genitals and buttocks. While The Game denied these allegations in court and on social media, the judge ruled in Rainey’s favor that he should pay $7.4 million to make amends. Approaching the court after months had passed without receiving any payment, Priscilla was determined to get what she owed from her abuser. The battle for restitution against the “How We Do” rapper began March 1st 2018, when Rainey filed documents demanding financial records.

Looking to prove The Game had been hiding money to avoid paying the judgment, Rainey hired several private investigators that stated he’d diverted millions. In addition to hiding cash, the investigation uncovered he’d acquired assets under pseudonyms controlled by himself and his business management. Now, with a new ruling, The Game has been informed that his royalties will be seized by Priscilla until the $7.4 million balance is paid.

According to court documents, “commission, royalties, contract receivables, deferred compensation, income, wages, payroll, salary, and accounts receivable” are all up for grabs. Should The Game attempt to disobey the court’s decision, he could be found in contempt of court and face some jail time.

So So Deaf: Jermaine Dupri Critiques the State of Female Rap

mm

Published

on

During an interview, Jermaine Dupri was asked by two hosts to name his favorite female rapper. Believing he’d list Megan Thee Stallion or Cardi B, Dupri’s response caught both the hosts and music aficionados off guard. Comparing the current roster of popular femcees to “strippers”, Dupri’s glaring act of misogyny has gotten him checked by the artists themselves.

For decades, airwaves have been flooded with male artists rapping about their sexual prowess, bevy of hos, material expenditures, and sale of drugs. But Jermaine Dupri doesn’t find fault with the repetitive, and occasionally elementary, lyrics of his peers. His ire was directed toward women whose bars are about celebrating their bodies, turning up in the club, and dominating men. Failing to note the similarities in what content is released by both men and women in the rap game, Dupri posed a weak argument that female rap lacks lyrical diversity.

As pointed out in Cardi’s response video, there are plenty of female rappers that don’t write about their bodies at all, they simply don’t receive equal support. And as the acting CEO of So So Def, you’d think Jermaine Dupri would take the initiative to seek out talent that raises what he believes is the bar. But no, the “Grammy award winning songwriter and producer” has no female rapper signed to his label aside from Da Brat and Tyeler Reign. Tyeler is the winner of the fifth season of The Rap Game who unsurprisingly still raps about money and designer labels, the very things Dupri would find unimpressive.

Female rappers have been vocal in their disagreement of Dupri’s piss-poor analysis. Both Doja Cat and Cardi B made statements disagreeing with his comments. Ari Lennox even dropped a diss track as a response to his ignorance. But the best rebuttals have been references of Dupri’s track record. Twitter users have been quick to remind us that JD has a history of dismissing the career trajectories of women with potential to be powerhouses in the industry. Perhaps after this wake up call, Jermaine Dupri will take a bit of Doja Cat’s advice and look for the artists he wants to uplift.
