Uncle Ben has been serving way more than rice this week.
Following the release of the now infamous radio brawl video with Matt, Peter has been feeling himself. It has been reported that he has been given a reality show by Bravo (release date and title still unknown) about his “businesses” in Charlotte and Atlanta. He stopped by The Breakfast Club this week to speak on the Matt Jordan fight, but also dropped a few thoughts on Phaedra Parks. “I never liked her…She never showed her reality. She definitely is a different person off camera then she is on camera. She pushed “dumb dumb” (Porsha) to do all her dirty work… She always contradicted herself. She was the girl with the prayer cloth, but she would always wear the most provocative stuff”. He called her vindictive and described how she disappeared for a week before Apollo went to jail, criticizing her for taking the kids too. He also spoke about being the “King of Charlotte”. (Okay Peter)
Fast forward to the end of this week, Peter declared himself the “King of Miami”. In an Instagram live video, Peter stated that there would be no Blackness celebrated on South Beach if it wasn’t for him. “I took Puff, I took Russell (Simmons), I took Dre, I took all of them down there for the first time. Never been to Miami Beach”. He proceeded to take shots, stating
“Luke came after me, I was there first. So don’t be acting like Miami ain’t my town. It is my town and I could come back and take that any time”.
Of course, Uncle Luke responded “You don’t run Miami, nobody runs Miami. Miami is made up of Trick Daddy, Ball Greezy, Trina. Miami is made up of Rick Ross, Pit Bull, Flo-rida. All I did was pave the way, so you and nobody else can try to erase my history. I brought Hip Hop to South Beach…” He proceeded to call Peter a “settler” (as well as DJ Khaled). The exchange continued, with Peter posting another video, slightly backtracking but trying to maintain his original stance.
Peter, the only thing you are the king of is not paying bills. You know you can’t go back to Miami and take over anything. If that was the case, you wouldn’t keep moving to more affordable markets (From NY to ATL, and then to Charlotte). Your history of having success and then losing it, it seems like a revolving door of failure. I need you to keep a business open for at least five years before you start getting cocky. Don’t let this glimpse of fame go to your head, let it go to your wallet. Get your coins up and keep them up before you start coming for people.
Are you here for Uncle Ben, aka Peter, aka the King of Everything?
Rolling Ray Undergoes Surgery After Wig Catches On Fire
Social media star Rolling Ray underwent surgery Tuesday morning to treat serious burns on his body after his terrible wig accident last week.
In a series of IG stories, he let his audience follow along as he prepped for surgery.
Last week Rolling Ray announced he was hospitalized after his wig caught on fire! During a January 13 Instagram Live session hosted straight from his hospital bedside, he showed his severely burnt and damaged face telling viewers his “whole skin, legs, arms, feet, and everything” were burned.
In a more recent Live, Ray explained the incident that led to his whole wig catching on fire: an unfortunate smoking accident. “It just, like, lit on fire when I tried to light the cigarette,” he recounted. “So I get to trying to snatch the wig off. B***h, the fire goes to my f*****g shirt, to my feet, to my legs, to my back. It’s a fire everywhere, it’s a fire in the whole room.”
Of course the internet trolled him in a disgusting display of ableism and heartlessness. Comments like “Rolling Ray should have stopped, dropped, and rolled” and “karma’s a b***h” had social media conflicted in its feelings about his accident. His sensation comes from his harsh and, often, below-the-belt reads (just last month he told Yung Miami to “dig (sic) up” her dead baby father. However, the criticism didn’t stop him from responding on Twitter.
Rolling Ray might be problematic as all get-out, but we do not tolerate ableism here. We wish him well as he heals.
Fantasia Reveals Gender of Baby On the Way!
On Tuesday singer-songwriter and “American Idol” winner Fantasia Barrino took to social media to reveal that she is having a baby girl, her first child with husband Kendall Taylor.
In a series of Instagram stories, Fantasia showed pink fireworks being shot off during a gender reveal party, to her and her hubby’s excitement! She continued by sharing what her daughter-to-be’s name will be: Keziah London Taylor.
The news comes after the couple revealed they had struggled to conceive since their 2015 marriage. During a November episode of her IG Live show “Taylor Talks,” she described continuously praying for a child with her husband. Fantasia, a deeply devout Christian, was obviously elated when she shared the news.
“God I Want To Thank You!” she said in an Instagram caption. “You Gave Us A Seed even when the Doctor said that one of my Tubes [was] Closed you said Different. @salute1st I Love You King and I can’t wait to see who He or She acts Like.”
We can see Fantasia and family are all super excited to be welcoming a baby girl into their lives. All congratulations to her.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Getting Divorced, Report Says
In a story published Tuesday evening, Page Six is reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced, with the two already in settlement talks. The news comes after the couple spent the holiday season separately – Kanye at his ranch outside Cody, Wyoming, Kim and the kids with her famous family in southern California.
A source close to Kardashian was quoted saying, “Kim got Kanye to go up there so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.” Kardashian, 40, and West, 43, are said to be splitting because of marital problems directly related to Kanye’s very public mental health struggles.
For several years the rapper’s various antics have caused fans to worry. After coming out as a Trump supporter, West then announced his own 2020 presidential bid under a new political party: the Birthday Party. At a campaign rally in South Carolina, he was seen rambling, debating individual audience members, and at times, crying. In various interviews, he has rambled on almost incoherently, and his tweetstorms are now infamous.
For her part, Kim has always supported her husband and has openly discussed the difficulties of their marriage. Back in June, she shared on social media, “Anyone who has [bipolar disorder] or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand… People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual (has) to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
It appears she has finally reached her limit in the union with the unnamed source saying, “She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s**t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Separately, a source close to Kanye alleges the rapper is sick of his wife and her family, which might have some truth to it since he has tweeted some pretty nasty things about them in the past. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” he said in a now-deleted July tweet. Recently, he hasn’t been featured on his wife’s Instagram and has largely remained out of the public eye.
With the news yet to be confirmed, the “divorce is imminent” reports are just rumors for now. We’ll be following the news as more information comes out.
