Hip-Hop Rumors: Rick Ross Might Be In Hot Water Over This Trayvon Lyric!

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 28-02-2014


Rick Ross caught a bad one (date rape rap line). Nicki just caught one (Malcolm X). Lil Wayne caught one (Emmett Till rap). But its looking like Rozay might have a very bad situation on his hand. FIRST of all, you can go listen to his new album right here. —— >>>

RELATED: Rick Ross’ “Mastermind” Now Available For Streaming

But, here is the catch. On the song “Black & White,” Ross may have picked his words poorly. TheGrio.com is saying that he rapped the following on the song.

Too close to a ni**a as a mother**king bomb
Trayvon Martin, I’m never missing my target
B*tch ni**as hating, tell me it’s what I’m parking
Wingstop owner, lend me pepper aroma
Young, black ni**a, barely got a diploma

They also say the following:

The line in question appears on the track “Black & White” with Ross comparing his success in the music industry to the death of Martin, and the acquittal of George Zimmerman.
This is the latest incident where cultural sensitivity and hip-hop music have collided.

TODAY is the anniversary of Trayvon’s murder by George Zimmerman. The following represents how I felt when I heard this rap. DAMN…time for some meaningless online boycotts and protest write ups.

Hip-Hop Rumors: Its Official : Drake and Rihanna Are An Item…

Hip-Hop Rumors: Its Official : Drake and Rihanna Are An Item…

Drake is living the life of a playboy for real. Dude has been linked to so many chicks, its crazy. But, its being reported that he and Rihanna linked up for real in Paris. I don’t know if this is a case of the evil media blowing stuff up, but it sure seems like its the truth.

It seems like this happened at a club in Paris and they were oblivious to anything going on around them. Then, there was dinner in Parsi. And Drake DJ’d somewhere and she was there.

They also were at a concert too. Here is the footage.

I wonder what Zoe Kravitz is going to say.

Together again: Rihanna and Drake hit another French night spot together on Monday night

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 28-02-2014

This is interesting. I GUESS. But, the fact is, Nicki Minaj and Safaree have been a couple for a minute now. One the low though. Now, they are not so on the low and they are out and about and in love. So, some tipster hit me on my email and told me that Safaree is really close to locking in with Nicki. That’s right…asking her to marry him. It seems like it could be true. Safaree recently got a second Nicki Minaj tat. He’s clearly on some forever ish. I heard this will either be very low key or a straight up secret like they were when they first started.

Here is the first one.

I WANT YOU BACK! Robin Thicke Breaks Down On Stage About Separation, Says "I’m Not Going Without A Fight!"

Robin Thicke may still be a day late and a dollar short.  He returned to his self-titled tour Thursday and revealed to the crowd that he’s fighting for his marriage!  Deets inside…

We’ve heard "friends" of the Patton-Thickes and sources speak out about Robin Thicke’s attempts to get his wife Paula back.  But Thursday night was the first time we heard it straight from the horse’s mouth.  And he’s making it known he’s not going anywhere without putting up a fight.

At the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA, Robin finally returned to the stage after missing a few dates due to "vocal issues"….which seem to have been more like "separation issues".

A concert goer tells us he revealed this to the sparse crowd right before launching into "Lost Without You":

"Y’all know I’m going through a separation, but I’m not going without a fight.  I want my baby back."

We’re told he even got a little "choked up" during a few of his songs. 

Check out video below:

Something tells us he’s going to have to come harder than this for Paula to forgive his recent booty grabbing, groupie-kissing, twerking with Miley Cyrus antics.

Da Brat Loses $6 Million In Lawsuit

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 28-02-2014

(AllHipHop News) Da Brat has been commanded to pay $6.4 million to a women she hit with a rum bottle by an Atlanta.

In 2007, the rapper hit a former cheerleader, Shayla Stevens, in the head and subsequently served almost three years in jail.

Stevens waged a war in civil court and the judge sided with her.

Da Brat, real name Shawntae Harris, Harris, was ordered to pay Stevens $3.7 million in compensatory damages and also additional $2.7 million in punitive damages.

Da Brat’s lawyer disagreed with the verdict.

“I’m baffled,” Attorney B.J. Bernstein told the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “She owned up to what happened when it happened and was punished.”

Stevens argued that the attack caused her lifelong injuries to her brain.

Da Brat may appeal the decision.

She is presently still on probation as punishment for the attack.

STUNNERS! YBF Celebs Shine At Essence’s Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 27-02-2014

The gorgeous ones made their way to the 2014 Essence Black Women In Hollywood luncheon this afternoon at the Beverly Hilton.  Get your fill of fabness with honoree Lupita Nyong’o, Kerry Washington, Brandy, and lots more…


 photo ScreenShot2014-02-27at81634PM_zpsd4053b75.png

Lupita is snatching awards and taking names as we get even closer to Oscar night.  Today in Beverly Hills, the 12 Years A Slave actress rocked a white embroidered crop top and pencil skirt by Giambattista Valli with matching white pumps by Sophia Webster.  And she was honored with the Breakthrough Performance of the Year award at the Essence Black Women In Hollywood luncheon.  

She was absolutely smitten with her award, and had the whole room teary eyed with her acceptance speech.  Here’s an excerpt:

I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin, I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin. And my one prayer to God, the miracle worker, was that I would wake up lighter-skinned. The morning would come and I would be so excited about seeing my new skin that I would refuse to look down at myself until I was in front of a mirror because I wanted to see my fair face first. And every day I experienced the same disappointment of being just as dark as I was the day before. I tried to negotiate with God, I told him I would stop stealing sugar cubes at night if he gave me what I wanted, I would listen to my mother’s every word and never lose my school sweater again if he just made me a little lighter. But I guess God was unimpressed with my bargaining chips because He never listened.

And when I was a teenager my self-hate grew worse, as you can imagine happens with adolescence. My mother reminded me often that she thought that I was beautiful but that was no conservation, she’s my mother, of course she’s supposed to think I am beautiful. And then…Alek Wek. A celebrated model, she was dark as night, she was on all of the runways and in every magazine and everyone was talking about how beautiful she was. Even Oprah called her beautiful and that made it a fact. I couldn’t believe that people were embracing a woman who looked so much like me, as beautiful. My complexion had always been an obstacle to overcome and all of a sudden Oprah was telling me it wasn’t. It was perplexing and I wanted to reject it because I had begun to enjoy the seduction of inadequacy. But a flower couldn’t help but bloom inside of me, when I saw Alek I inadvertently saw a reflection of myself that I could not deny. Now, I had a spring in my step because I felt more seen, more appreciated by the far away gatekeepers of beauty. But around me the preference for my skin prevailed, to the courters that I thought mattered I was still unbeautiful. And my mother again would say to me you can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you and these words plagued and bothered me; I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be.

Kim Kardashian Harassed By Blackface, Racist Kanye West Impersonator

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 27-02-2014

(AlHipHop News) Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have seemingly become a couple bullseyes for racists now and a new exploit supports the notion.

A man ran up on Kim dressed as Kanye West in black face during a ball dance in Austria.

Kim was paid $500,000 to act as the date of Richard Lugner, a business man who paid for her to attend the Vienna Annual Opera Ball.

When the man harassed Kim, she left the venue when she still had an hour and a half to stay, per her contract with Lugner. The business man later conducted an interview where he said that “Kim its annoying me.”

While Kim was taking pictures with Lugner, the man in black face showed up and impersonated Kanye West. Another, separate racist man asked her to dance and she rejected the idea stating she could not dance very well, according to a TMZ report.

After declining, the other man reportedly asked could she would dance if the orchestra played “N***ers in Vienna,” and obvious play on Kanye West’s Jay Z helmed hit “N***as in Paris.” Kim completely abandoned the effort at that time. Also, Kim says that Lugner tried to get her alone and acted too aggressive.

The whole incident is reportedly caught on tape by Kim’s reality show shooters.

The always eclectic Pharrell Williams pissed off a lot of black woman when he released his new album cover last week.

His second solo release is slated to be in stores on March 3, but it looks like G I R L is missing someone important or so we thought.

The soon to be 41 year-old chatted with Power 105.1′s ‘The Breakfast Club’ on Thursday (February 27) about the controversy and says a black woman is represented and he’s standing right next to her! Interesting..

Check out a snippets of his comments, as well as the full audio below:

What really disappointed me is they jumped the gun, because the one I’m standing closest to is black. She’s a black girl from Wisconsin that I used to date over ten years ago or maybe like twelve years ago.

That just must suck for people to just look at something and to assume that they know what’s going on. And if they just bothered to listen to my album, they would know that my album is just an ode to women period. And the one thing I was just trying to help and aid in changing is that crazy statuesque standard of you gotta be white, **** and thin for you to be beautiful.

…What is this conversation? So is my President not black? Is Lenny Kravitz not one of our greatest rockers? I mean what are we talking about? Is Lisa Bonet in or out? … And I’m not mad because I understand that plight. My dad is a dark skin man.. Have I lived it specifically? Yeah I’m a black man… Of course I’m doing this for us. What are you talking about man? My mom is a black woman that is a huge part of my business. My business is run by another black woman and I’m married to a black woman. What are you talking about?

Blah blah blah! If you take a listen to his full answer below, he contradicts himself numerous times. If you want to reach all women, why not have ALL women represented? The women on the cover represent Westernized standards of beauty and that’s the truth. Not to mention, I’m a woman and I listened to his album on iTunes radio and it wasn’t all that. I only liked the song “Happy”..

Just keep it real Pharrell and say “That’s the cover I chose. Deal with it.” All this “extraness” is not needed because it isn’t genuine. Furthermore, he is only pandering to women because everyone knows that we are the only ones who spend real money on music. It’s a business y’all! The only color he is checking for is that green!

Kanye is always surprising his fans with innovative things and early Thursday (February 27) he announced that “Yeezus” will be hitting theater screens near you.

In a movie trailer posted on his official website, the 36 year-old announced that a Hype Williams directed flick (mostly of tour footage) would be released.

This isn’t the first time ‘Ye has taken his music the to the screens. Remember 2010′s Runaway and 2012′s Cruel Summer? Should be interesting…
