Cardi B, Migos, & Security Team Cleared Over Last Year's Met Gala Attack

1553242081_5db6984c0e733f3fbab149c5244d6529.jpg



Rappers Cardi B and Migos can breathe a sigh of relief now that they’re off the hook for the fight that broke out after the Met Gala in May of last year. The fashion event is a place for the who’s who of the entertainment industry to walk the red carpet, and usually, nothing troublesome goes down. If anything, you may see a celebrity or two trip over a piece of couture threads, but that’s about as crazy as it gets.

That is, until last year when a fan, Giovanni Arnold, was allegedly harassing Cardi B. and crew for an autograph. Arnold walked alongside Cardi, but was getting a little too close for comfort. Before you know it, a scuffle broke out on the street right in front of The Mark Hotel. There were rumors that Arnold was suing Migos and Cardi for the assault and that the rappers’ security teams were in trouble with the law for the fight.

However, TMZ now reports that the team can rest easy because they won’t be facing charges in connection with the assault. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Arnold is refusing to cooperate with NYPD, even though he can clearly be seen in the video being wrestled to the ground. The case has reportedly been closed, and the team nor the rappers are being held responsible.

However, they all may still be facing a case, seeing that Arnold had hired attorney Daniel Szalkiewicz to represent him in a civil lawsuit where he claims that he had injuries on his face, neck, back, and various parts of his body.

Travis Scott & Kylie Jenner Visit Nas' Restaurant With Baby Stormi

1553237287_841a86dd5670f436f810e7fbd1adcf97.jpg



Contrary to reports that Travis Scott and girlfriend Kylie Jenner are having a difficult time with their relationship, the parents seemed as if all was well when they were caught by TMZ leaving the Los Angeles restaurant Sweet Chick, an eatery where fellow rapper Nas is named part owner. The couple has much to celebrate as Scott just broke the L.A. Forum venue records with multiple sold-out shows within a 12-month period, while also bringing in $1.7 million in just one night.

He also recently sat down with Nas for an interview for Playboy magazine where the old school and new school artists had an interesting dialogue about hip hop. “Speaking of a time before all this technology, it was like, ‘Okay, I rap.’ You had to get to this popular producer in your city,” Scott said. “He would hear your s**t, and maybe he’d let you record and give you a beat. Then he’d bring you to the DJ, and radio was the main problem.”

“But now it’s like, man, I got my own social media,” he continued. “I can drop my s**t. I can cater to my own followers. People can look at my s**t if they want to. It’s not like the radio, where somebody can stop people from hearing me. I can yell it loud right now: I want to rap! If people want to catch on to it, they can catch on to it. And then, if you want to explain what’s going on in your personal life, you talk to your fans too. Back then you had to do a press conference.”

Nas agreed. “You can reach the world faster—a lot faster than back then. That’s a great thing, because it was mind-boggling trying to figure out how to get this message out to people and market your record at the right time and then drop a single six weeks before the album. That’s gone.”

NAV & Meek Mill Link Up For "Tap" Single

1553233371_6bf21613b5509d7f9df5d49b556203d8.jpg



We might have received NAV’s Bad Habits sans Lil Uzi Vert, but the Toronto rapper still has a solid record on his hands. NAV’s sophomore studio project features the likes of Young Thug, Lil Durk and The Weeknd, who also acts as executive producer of the record, but his collaboration with Meek Mill on “Tap” has created a buzz with listeners. 

Bad Habits comes just a week after the surprise release of NAV’s Brown Boy EP, the first piece of music that we’ve heard in months from the XO artist. He’s been laying low in the cut on hiatus, taking a step back from the industry in solidarity with his good friend Vert who decided to retire from music. After XO Records label head Amir “Cash” Esmailian dropped the EP online, it was time for NAV to come back into the limelight and bless fans with some new tunes.

That didn’t come without just a hint of drama. NAV linked up with Vert and had his friend add a verse to the track “Habits,” but because Vert’s label heads DJ Drama and Don Cannon reportedly wouldn’t release his for the single, the track didn’t make the record. Drama addressed the rumors that he was at fault, denying all allegations. However, NAV was excited to work with Meek Mill on “Tap,” and the two rappers created a catchy single that fans can rock to.

Quotable Lyrics

In the trap, hang in places that you can’t go
Glock .40, he got smokey, yeah, the draco
Thousand nights on that corner eating egg-rolls
Bad b***h Puerto Rican, look like J. Lo, woah

Rich The Kid: "I'm Feeling Like The Hottest Rapper In The F**king World"

1553229464_9d08ada4e8df48a62217390573ad0cf9.jpg



The World is Your 2 is upon us, and it’s safe to say that the album is fire. So, how do you think Rich The Kid is feeling? “I’m feeling like the hottest rapper in the f**king world,” he said. Just hours before TWIY2 dropped, Rich chopped it up with Billboard for an exclusive one-on-one interview where he spoke in detail about his latest project. According to The Kid, this is the album of the year because he has hit after hit, not just a basic release with a few singles or “regular songs.”

“I record so much work, so when it’s time to do an album it’s like, I just pick the songs,” he said. “I got so much, so I’m coming back after this quick.” When asked how quick “quick” actually is, the rapper was coy about it and just repeated his same answer. “I like bringing the best out of the track,” Rich said. “When I do a track, I pick the beat. I got a very unique beat selection. So, after I make the song, I try to hear who I would hear on the song for the fans, not only for myself. So that’s how it goes [when it comes to] collaborating.”

“Me and Miguel did the record. It was dope,” the rapper said about linking up with R&B hitters Miguel and Ty Dolla $ign on “Woah.” “I did one verse to it and then I changed it when I got to New York. Then I sent it to Ty Dolla [and] he sent it back to me the same day in like, two hours. You already know it’s [a] smash.” Rich also said that he and Tory Lanez, who he collaborated with on “Tic Toc,” have quite a few records in the vault, so there’s always the possibility that they could work on a joint project. However, they aren’t committed to anything just yet and are just going with the flow.

Check out what else Rich The Kid had to say on the eve of his album release including what it’s like running his own record label, his past job working as a cashier at Wendy’s, and what it’s been like anticipating the birth of his son below:

Young Thug Allegedly Threatens to Slap YFN Lucci On Instagram Live

1553221702_c81f66217f44b2f5f32b721ab726dfd9.jpg



The long-standing beef between Young Thug and YFN Lucci is apparently still going because when Thug was on Instagram Live earlier today, he made it clear that he would still put those paws on Lucci. These two have been trading shadey remarks for years, including a back-and-forth argument on Twitter in regards to Thugger’s Tupac comparison.

“I dropped EBBTG on 2pac’s birthday because I’m the #newPac,” Thug shared on Twitter. Lucci jumped in to add his two cents writing, “Pac would’ve never wore a dress,” adding a clown emoji to the end of his response. Thug then asked, “Ulil mad or big mad peon” adding, “Doin to much could become a deep sleep.”

In this most recent Instagram video, Thug seems to be answering a viewer’s question about whether or not things could get physical with Lucci. “Man, of course I’m gon’ slap Lucci,” Thugger allegedly says. “I’mma slap the hell out y’all little n***a man. Stop playin’. Keep playin’ and know what time it is.”

Not long after the Tupac spat, Lucci sat down with Vlad TV and when asked about the beef, he denied that there was any ill-will between him and Thug. “I don’t have no issues with nobody,” said Lucci. “That’s unreal, but I ain’t got no problem with nobody.” These two have fallen out in the past when it’s come to Thug’s girlfriend Jerrika Karlae, as well. Lucci messaged Karlae, saying that he missed her. Thug snapped back, but eventually decided to shut down the argument after accusing Lucci of trying to start beef with him for clout. “U just tying to get on!” Thug said. “If any upcoming rapper wanna be put on, let’s make music…Cross out the devil and go with God please.”

Pastor John Gray’s Alleged Mistress Says They Had More Than An ‘Emotional’ Affair

Pastor John Gray and his wife Aventer made headlines when it was revealed their seemingly happy marriage was tainted with infidelity. While Pastor Gray assured fans it was only an “emotional” affair, recently discovered audio recordings paint a different picture.

A woman, who remains anonymous, says she and Gray had a physical relationship during an interview with Larry Reid, She says Gray once booked her a room in the same hotel as his wife, but Aventer found out. He left the woman a voicemail warning her that venter had read their text messages. The mystery woman says that she and Gray had Facetime sex, where he would speak in tongues after climaxing. And yes, they two had sex.

She told Reid that she and Gray had been friends for years, but things changed after the woman went through a domestic violence incident that left her vulnerable.

“It started with him—he likes to say—breathing life into me. So he was just there as far as talking to me, pretty much pastoring me, ministering to me. And I called on him to do a favor to a person that I knew that was struggling with some addiction issues. And so I called upon him to help with that. It was an employee of mine. That employee actually wound up speaking with him and it got him on the straight and narrow. So I sent him a text message telling him thank you. And he said, ‘Whatever you need.’ And I was like ‘Well thank you.’ And he said, ‘I’m talking about you.’

John Gray allegedly also offered her financial help when she fell on hard times.

“He would say, ‘The Lord told me that you need some money so go ahead and check your cash app. I already put money in your account.”

He also allegedly confided in her about his marriage and claimed Aventer didn’t satisfy him.

“I ran into an issue financially and he was just like absolutely. and it was a big deal. It was a really big thing. From that moment on, it started from there. It snowballed into ‘I just love you so much. I always loved you. I always thought about you. I always cared about you,’ the woman shared.

“Then he was going through the stuff with his wife and he was saying how he didn’t like her, didn’t love her, that he was never attracted to her, that he only married her because she looked good on paper.”

The woman also had voicemails of what seemed to be John Gray’s voice.

“When you get this message, delete it. My wife saw our text messages from Friday. She knows you were in the same hotel as me and she does not know that I went to your room. She doesn’t remember me leaving. She’s got your number,” he said.

Gray told the public he was only guilty of being  “inappropriate” because he carried on an “emotional” affair. Clearly there’s more to the story.

Listen to her story, below.

On the eve of his album release, Rich The Kid took to Instagram to show off his brand new, super shining chain. The World Is Yours 2 is set to be one of the most anticipated releases of the month, and to celebrate his latest musical feat, Rich treated himself to an expensive present. The spinning chain was reportedly commissioned by celebrity jeweler Eliantte and is said to have 250 carats of VS diamonds in addition to a Cuban link chain.

“Album tonight at 12 @eliantte you jus s**tted.. craziest chain in the world 🌎 #theworldisyours2,” he captioned a video of clip of his new chain on Instagram. The price of the one-of-a-kind jewelry came in at $425,000, so hopefully his security is right and tight because that’s a whole house he’s wearing around his neck. Meanwhile, fans are gearing up for Rich’s sophomore effort which boasts features that include Gunna, Young Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, NAV, Big Sean, Offset, A-Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and many more

The rapper’s single “Splashin'” is on TWIY2 and Rich sat down with Billboard to talk about how it only took him less than an hour to write and record the track. “Automatically, it just came to my head,” he said. “I didn’t even have to write it or anything. I just started recording, just put the headphones on and I just started recording the verse. It took me like 25 to 30 minutes to write the whole song.”

The World Is Yours 2 drops at midnight, tonight.

GettyImages-1128563400.jpg


The year kicked off in one of the most unexpected ways with Soulja Boy hopping on Instagram Live and giving what will likely go down as one of the best memes of the year. He may claim 2018 as the year of his comeback but we’re witnessing his career resurrect in front of us right now. While he’s been getting more bookings since his infamous “TYGA?!” clip and his subsequent Breakfast Club interview, he’ll, unfortunately, won’t be performing at Fordham University as part of their annual music festival.

According to The Blast, Fordham University Campus Activities Board has dropped Soulja Boy from their upcoming Spring Weekend Concert in NYC. The rapper was set to headline the festival but following his arrest for probation violation, the board removed Young Drako from the line-up.

“The Campus Activities Board has watched, along with our fellow Fordham students, the headlines that have been in the news as a result of Soulja Boy’s comeback,” the organization wrote in a statement. “After careful consideration, the Campus Activities Board has decided to remove Soulja Boy from the Spring Weekend concert lineup.”

They apologized to anyone who was “excited” to catch Soulja Boy live in concert.

Soulja Boy was arrested last week after he checked in probation officer. The rapper was arrested on a possible probation violation which stemmed from gun ammunition found inside the rapper’s home.
