Iggy Azalea Shades Britney Spears over Lacklustre "Pretty Girls" Single

Iggy Azalea blames "Pretty Girls" flopping on Britney Spears' team's lack of promo. Girl power united on Britney Spears new single "Pretty Girls" which features Australian rapper Iggy Azalea. The song was pretty horrible, even our audience gave it a "NOT FEELING IT" rating (only thing worse is "MAKE IT STOP"). The song was pushed again with an over-the-top music video that didn't really make any sense. Although Iggy's had a few charting singles herself, this one, not so much. Iggy's quieted down on twitter in recent times, but she felt like taking to the platform to throw blame at Britney's team in regards to the underperforming record. In replying to a fan's tweet, Iggy said, "Its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc, unfortunately I'm just featured." She was even colder on her follow-up tweet, which says, "my comment is factual, it applies to any song. I dont have to suck the womans asshole 24/7 to be her friend, do i? bye girls."

Members Of N.W.A. Reunited To Perform At BET Experience

Ice Cube Ice Cube, MC Ren, and DJ Yella reunited on stage at the BET Experience. Last night's BET Experience event was something special, as it served as the first time Ice Cube, MC Ren, and DJ Yella had performed together since 1989. While Dr Dre unfortunately didn't make it out, the three former N.W.A. members still ripped through classic tracks, "Fuck The Police" and "Chin Check". Yet another west coast legend, Snoop Dogg, helped them out on the latter, while "Police" featured visuals of the McKinney pool incident, as well as other recorded instances of police brutality. Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock also performed as Black Hippy the same night. Check out footage of the performances below.

Cops Rolled Up On A Plies Video Shoot Thinking It Was A Hostage Situation

Plies Image The many guns in Plies' new video caused a misunderstanding with police. Florida police approached what they were told was a hostage situation this weekend, but it turned out to be nothing more than a Plies video shoot. Someone apparently called 911 after they saw Plies and another guy pointing guns at a third man, which they described as two black males holding a white man hostage. When the cops arrived, it was pretty clear what was actually going on, and while they discovered the weapons were unloaded, they advised against leaving a pile of artillery out in the open. The firearms were being used in a scene where Plies was meant to be picking up guns from Haitian gangsters. Now we're very interested to see the final product. Watch some footage from the scene below. http://www.tmz.com/videos/0_exssrh7x

Iggy Azalea's Ex-Boyfriend Hefe Wine Claims She Gave Him An STD

Iggy Azalea's ex-boyfriend Hefe Wine claims she gave him an STD, wants money for subsequent "mental anguish." Iggy Azalea's ex-boyfriend/rapper Hefe Wine refuses to go away. According to court papers obtained by Daily Mail, Hefe claims Iggy gave him an STD and is seeking payment for subsequent medical bills and "mental anguish." Hefe Wine continues to establish himself as one of the most prolific gold diggers of the new millenium, having previously stolen Iggy's laptop and attempting to pass off her music as his own and attempted to extort her by threatening to release a sex tape. Iggy actually addressed his STD threat back in 2014 (see below). Hefe released the following statement to XXL: “Let me see how I can start this. I had a contract on her, I have a contract on her and in spite of her going to sign with a different label, in spite of her lying that she’s not signed [to me], I took the high road. Even though contractually I could have just stopped it from the very beginning. I said, I’m just going to take the song I wrote and produced, the songs that I can lawfully put out, and put it out. When I did that and they got wind of it—it’s actually in iTunes and Warner Music put it out—they attacked it. Like, “Hey, you can’t put this out.” That’s when all of the smoke hit the fan.” Hard not to side with Iggy here. IGGY AZALEA ✔ @IGGYAZALEA I also was told yesterday via his lawyer if i do not settle out of court they will go to the press and say i gave him an STD, whats next? 11:31 AM - 17 Oct 2014 [via HipHopDX]

Kanye West Says He Recorded New Songs With Justin Vernon

Kanye West In The Spotlight Kanye West says he cut some tracks with Justin Vernon. While facing the haters at Glastonbury Saturday night, Kanye West brought out Justin Vernon of Bon Iver to croon on "Lost in the World" off MBDTF and "Hold My Liquor" off Yeezus, both of which he appeared on the studio version. Kanye revealed that he's been back in the studio with Vernon before queuing up "No Church In The Wild." “We did some more joints together,” he said.

The Game Says "Documentary 2" Is Coming In August, Reveals Huge Producers Involved

The Game Closeup The Game shares an update on his upcoming album, "The Documentary 2". It's difficult to do release a worthwhile sequel to a classic album 10 years removed, but it has been done. Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 is one of the few projects of it's kind to live up to the title, but Game's Documentary 2 seems poised to do the same. Speaking with Power 98 FM, Game revealed that his new album is now prepped for an August release date, and will feature production from heavyweights like Dr. Dre, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, Alchemist, DJ Premier and (the recently bankrupted) Scott Storch, many of whom contributed to the original album. The latest we heard from the album was the Drake-assisted "100". You can listen to the new single here. Watch the (barely audible) interview below. Do you think Game will succeed in creating a satisfying sequel to his beloved debut?

Meek Mill's BET After Party Attracted A Lot Of Cops

Meek Mill Closeup Meek Mill's BET afterparty in Hollywood brought out a good chunk of the LAPD. Police were taking no chances with BET afterparties this year. In what was likely a reaction to a shooting at an event following the awards in 2014, cops came were in abundance outside of Meek Mill's party last night. TMZ reports that a gaggle of cops showed up, both in cars and helicopters, shortly after the rapper's party hit capacity at around 12 AM. While a couple of party-goers were booked for disorderly conduct, the police presence didn't interfere with Meek's gathering at Playhouse Hollywood all that much. However, eyewitnesses claimed to have seen YG turned away from the doors when he opted out of a pat-down. Check out footage from the scene below. Think it was an overreaction?

Bobby Shmurda Arrested For Receiving "Sharpened Metal Instrument"

Bobby Shmurda Lookin Ass Bobby Shmurda arrested for "promoting prison contraband" after he received a "sharpened metal instrument." Bobby Shmurda can't catch a break. According to the prosecution at Bobby Shmurda's court appearance Wednesday, the rapper was arrested on June 23 on 1st degree charges of "promoting prison contraband" after he received a "sharpened metal instrument" on July 21. The charge will not be addressed at the October 5 trial date. “Promoting prison contraband" constitutes “knowingly and unlawfully introduc[ing] any dangerous contraband into a detention facility,” or, “Being a person confined in a detention facility [who] knowingly and unlawfully makes, obtains or possesses any dangerous contraband" according to the New York penal code. It is a Class D felony. Shmurda's latest charge will be heard in Bronx Criminal Court, the jurisdiction under which Rikers Island lies. [via HipHopDX]

Kanye West Told Young Thug He Wants To Do An Album Together

Young Thug Pic Young Thug says Kanye West compared him to Bob Marley and wants to do an album together. Young Thug let the cat out of the bag on some records he did with Kanye West way back in January, and while we're still patiently awaiting their arrival, their may be more new music down the road from the two rappers. According to Thug, Kanye was around during a couple of dates on he and Travi$ Scott's "Rodeo" tour, and at that point, Ye was more excited about his music than ever. "We [were] backstage at one of the tour dates at the Staples Center in L.A. and Kanye was backstage," Thug told RollingOut. "He had a Beats Pill and was like, ‘I wanna hear all of your music in the world that’s not out.’ So I was letting him hear all the music. Then he said I was like Bob Marley and he wanted to do an album with me. I was like, ‘Let’s roll!’ He’s a fan." As far as we know, Thug's upcoming debut album, Hy!£UN35, does not involve Kanye, but perhaps he'll have an executive-producer credit sometime in the future? Until then, he just has to worry about getting both his own and Rihanna's albums out there. Then again, he could be referring to "doing an album," as a Watch The Throne type deal, which would be a whole 'nother level. Think it'll happen?

Amber Rose Covered her Wiz Khalifa Tattoo with a Sleeve of Roses

Amber Rose covered her Wiz Khalifa tattoo with a fresh sleeve of roses. In the final step of ridding her life of Wiz Khalifa, Amber Rose removed her tattoo of his visage from her left arm, reports TMZ. TMZ's goons approached Rose recently as she hopped onto a motorized tricycle with her entire upper left arm wrapped in the type of white bandage typically used after a visit to the tattoo parlor. Rose deflected the reporter's questions, but her silence spoke volumes. A video taken by one of Rose's friends later surfaced that clearly depicted a fresh sleeve of roses tatted where Wiz's face used to be. See for yourself below.

Diddy Charged with 5 Counts after Confrontation with UCLA Basketball Coach

Diddy charged with 5 counts for assaulting UCLA football coach Sal Alosi. Diddy was charged with three counts of assault with deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats, and one count of battery after his altercation with UCLA football coach Sal Alosi yesterday, reports Sportscenter. Diddy was in attendance at a UCLA football spring strength and conditioning session to support his son, defensive back Justin Combs, when Alosi verbally tore into the younger Combs. "I don't care if your dad's here. This is UCLA. I'm going to treat you just like I treat everyone else," Alosi said according to TMZ. Diddy and his son reportedly confronted Alosi in his office following the practice. The details of the altercation remain undisclosed but Diddy ended up in custody at a UCLA campus jail with 50 Cent lampooning him on social media. UPDATE: 6/23 6:00 PM: Diddy's camp has released a statement, ESPN reports: "The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate. What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son." According to a UCLA statement, Diddy was arrested for "an alleged assault involving a weight-room kettlebell." According to TMZ, Justin Combs released a statement of his own: ”I thank God for having a father that’s always there for me.. Love you pops!” Diddy made bail Monday evening. [via HipHopDX] [via XXL]

Young Thug and London on DA Track Announce "Slime Season" Mixtape

Young Thug and London On Da Track announce a new mixtape effort. Hy!£UN35, Young Thug leaks have been popping up every other day lately, while the rapper preps his official debut album, Hy!£UN35. Although the Atlanta native doesn't appear too bothered by the leaks, he's taken to Instagram to reveal more official releases are on the way, with a joint mixtape produced by London On Da Track. Meanwhile, we're still waiting on the Metro Boomin' joint mixtape Metro Thuggin. The other month Thugga claimed his next mixtape would be titled Carter V, since Wayne's own Carter V hasn't seen the light of day yet. It looks like he's changed his mind, perhaps to avoid more legal beef, or perhaps Slime Season is a precursor. We'll have to wait and see. Check out the artwork we have for Slime Season above. No release date yet, but Thugger says it's on the way.

Lil Wayne Claims that Drake and Nicki Minaj Might Leave Young Money because of Birdman

Lil Wayne alleges that Birdman and Cash Money's incompetence will lead to Drake and Nicki Minaj leaving Young Money. The Lil Wayne/Birdman drama is far from over, although it's quieted down for a minute. Weezy has still been taking every opportunity possible to distance himself from his Cash Money affiliates, and he recently announced a release date for the Free Weezy Album, a non-apologetic jab at Birdman and CM, whom Wayne previously said was holding him prisoner. Following Wayne moving his lawsuit against Birdman to New Orleans, TMZ has unearthed new details on the situation. According to documents filed by Lil Wayne, the rapper claims that Birdman and Cash Money have mismanaged Young Money, including its biggest stars Drake and Nicki Minaj. The documents allege that Baby/CM haven't paid people whom they owe money too, they haven't handed over profits either, among other things. Weezy claims that they've been mishandled so badly that both Drake and Nicki Minaj will probably leave Young Money. We'll keep you posted if this sees a reply from Birdman and the Cash Money team.

Meek Mill Reveals Huge Features On "Dreams Worth More Than Money"

Meek Mill Performing Meek Mill's sophomore album will feature Drake, Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, and more. While it's rumored to be released later this month, we still don't know a whole lot about Meek Mill's upcoming sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. Following his interview with UK DJ Charlie Sloth, we now know some of the big names who will appear on the project. According to Meek, we'll be hearing Drake, The Weeknd, Swizz Beatz, Nicki Minaj, Future, and Chris Brown on the album, and possibly a few more guests. As far as when we'll be seeing the album, it's still anyone's guess, but we're hoping it will be sooner than later, because we're more excited than ever at this point. Which feature are you most excited for?

Kendrick Lamar Wrote "The Blacker The Berry" Soon After Trayvon Martin's Death

Kendrick Lamar Kendrick Lamar shares isight into "The Blacker The Berry," the "therapy" of "To Pimp A Butterfly," and being introduced to new fans through "Bad Blood". As much as Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly has been talked about, by critics, fans, and Kendrick himself, we're still learning new things about the album each time it's brought up. Seeing that it's probably the densest rap album in recent memory, it's not exactly surprising, and we're eager to hear Lamar reveal more of its intricacies in every interview. Speaking with the Guardian, the Compton rapper spoke about one of the most aggressive tracks on the album "The Blacker The Berry". While the song clearly deals with race and violence, and even mentions Trayvon Martin by name, Lamar revealed in the interview that the first draft of the record was actually written quite soon after the death of Martin. Read a few key excerpts from the interview, in which he talks about being inspired to write about tragic events like Trayvon's murder, his early experiences with music, and the strange introduction Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" will give him to certain listeners. On writing about Trayvon Martin: These are issues that if you come from that environment it’s inevitable to speak on. It’s already in your blood because I am Trayvon Martin, you know. I’m all of these kids. It’s already implanted in your brain to come out your mouth as soon as you’ve seen it on the TV. I had that track way before that, from the beginning to the end, and the incident just snapped it for me. On his mindset while recording TPAB: This album was therapy for me. I know it’ll be challenging for a listener who doesn’t know my music. The process of me making it is the same process the listener’s going to have to deal with, and that’s rolling with it. I had to roll with this record for two years but it was a fun experience. That’s the place I’m putting the listener in. On escaping violence through music: It was the counterweight to peer pressure. Whenever I wasn’t on the streets with my homeys I was in the studio. It was something that kept me out of trouble. So my mom would let me stay out till four in the morning because she knew I was doing that. On how listeners discovering him through "Bad Blood" will react to "TPAB": I don’t know. I know it’ll be challenging for a listener who doesn’t know my music. The process of me making it is the same process the listener’s going to have to deal with, and that’s rolling with it. I had to roll with this record for two years but it was a fun experience. That’s the place I’m putting the listener in.

Kanye West Hangs With Outkast, 2 Chainz & More At Atlanta Waffle House

Following his surprise performance at 107.9's Birthday Bash 20, Kanye joined a few of his favorite ATLiens at their favorite late night spot. Fonzworth Bentley appears to be the man who brought Ye out for the night, tweeting, "I mean if my boy is gonna be in the A I had to take em to the Waffle House". Also in attendance were Atlanta-based Ye-affiliates, 2 Chainz and CyHi The Prynce, as well as both Bog Boi and Andre 3000 of Outkast.

50 Cent Says Chris Brown And Kendrick Lamar Will Appear On "Street King Immortal"

50 Cent 50 Cent says Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, Kendrick Lamar will be featured on "Street King Immortal." In an interview with Hot 93.7 Hartford earlier this week, 50 Cent revealed he's been working on his forthcoming album Street King Immortal with Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar, and Ne-Yo. 50 Cent dropped "Get Low" last month, a track that featured Jeremih, 2 Chainz, and T.I. and will presumably appear on SKI.

Kendrick Lamar Shouts Out Lil B & Lil Wayne For Being Influential Artists

Kendrick Lamar Kendrick gives props to the 2 most influential rappers in the game - Lil B and Lil Wayne. Kendrick Lamar is not the type of dude to be chilling on Twitter shooting the shit -- he's tweeted 11 times in the last seven weeks -- so it's a bit of a surprise whenever he actually say something. Today he took the time to give a shoutout to the two artists he deems the most influential: Lil B and Lil Wayne. "Thank you BasedGod," he wrote. "Teaching us all how to swagg in videos. You and Wayne most influential. Thank you BasedGod." A couple months back Kendrick tweeted out that he considered Weezy "the most influential artist of this generation," so it appears he fucks with Wayne heavy. God knows he'll be bumping Free Weezy along with the rest of us when it drops on July 4. Kendrick Lamar ✔ @kendricklamar Thank you BasedGod. Teaching us all how to swagg in videos.

ScHoolboy Q Says He's Dropping His Album "After Jay Rock" On Twitter

[caption width=400" align="alignnone"]Schoolboy Q [Image Via Everyday Lavan Photography][/caption] ScHoolboy Q held a brief Twitter Q&A today, but later deleted it. ScHoolboy Q has been uncharacteristically quiet since the release of his debut physical album, Oxymoron, last year, surprisingly not even making an appearance on Kendrick Lamar's recent album, To Pimp A Butterfly. The lack of features we've heard from Q may have something to do with his focus on a follow-up LP, which he briefly spoke on in a Twitter Q&A today. "Da new one I'm wrkin on," ScHoolboy replied to a question about his favorite album he'd made, later revealing that he'd possibly be dropping it "after Jay Rock". Later on he answered a hater's question ("why ya music so garbage?") with "CuHz I dnt rap like da migos or future and sound like sHcoolboy Q no mAtter what." Of course, this instantly had people saying he was taking shots at the rappers he mentioned, which he laughed off; "smH lol ppl so stupid braH". All of the questions he answered were deleted shortly thereafter. Think we'll get Q's album later this year?

Empire's Taraji P. Henson Hospitalized

Terrance Howard & Taraji P. Henson Taraji P. Henson, most recently known for her role as Cookie on Empire, was treated for exhaustion Friday. Anyone who watches FOX's new show, Empire (and considering how big a hit it is, there should be a lot of you), know that Taraji P. Henson's portrayal of Cookie is the best part of the series. On Friday, Henson was hospitalized, but fans will be happy to hear she's making a quick recovery, with her rep confirming that the reason for the visit is fairly minor. "Taraji is going to be fine. It was mostly exhaustion," her people told ABC, which means that Season 2 of Empire, which is filming now in Chicago, should still make its September 23rd premiere date. Henson was already cracking jokes on Instagram as of yesterday, posting a photo of her IV, and captioning with a reference to her character in the show, and stressing that the hospital trip was really just a matter of her "doing too much". Check it out below.

Father's Day 2015 proved occasion for a rare Meek Mill-TIME Magazine connection, as Meek used the publication as a platform to write an open letter to his 4-year old son. He touched on what being a father means to him in light of never having had a father himself. He expressed fear and love regarding fatherhood, and looks forward to helping his son became a great man. Here are a couple excerpts from the letter: "With my career and my crazy schedule, sometimes it’s tough to be able to spend the amount of time with him that I want and that he deserves. After spending time away from him, one of my favorite things to do is get on my four wheeler with my little man in tow. Picture us riding around my neighborhood waving at all my neighbors. My son is fearless on his bike. Those are the moments I think about when I’m on the road." "I never had a strong male figure in my life. I didn’t have that person to teach me things fathers teach their sons because my father was killed when I was young. It was just me, my mom, and my sister, so I had to be the man of the house. When I was younger, I remember being able to speak to my father and then in the blink of an eye, he was gone. My mom played the role of both mom and dad. We had nothing growing up, so my mom worked any job she could find to provide for me and my sister. I love her so much for that. But as much as I appreciated everything my mother did for me, she couldn’t fill the space that a father should hold in a child’s life." Read the entire letter here. [via XXL]

Vince Staples Discusses Admiration For Vans Sneakers, Lil B, Jheri Curls

Vince Staples Vince Staples discusses Summertime '06, admiration for Vans, Lil B, jheri curls. Vince Staples sat down with HNHH recently for a insightful and comprehensive interview covering his upcoming album Summertime '06 from every conceivable angle. That said, Vince's recent interview with XXL had a couple humorous tidbits of its own... he had this to say when asked about the cultural impact of Vans when he was younger (when Vince had just turned 13 years old in summer '06): Oh, we thought we were skateboarders when we were younger. That shit was crazy. We used to think that we was super duper rappers, super duper terror kiddy backer three time niggas, so Vans was important for us growing up. And they cheap as hell and Lil B the Based God and The Pack’s “Got My Vans On But They Look Like Sneakers” took over middle school. But as far as Vans in the West Coast, that’s some regular shit, man. Everybody has a pair of Vans. They know what they’re doing. When asked what child actor he would want to play Summertime '06 in a film, he responded thusly: "Richie from Family Matters, because my nigga had the cold jheri curl, man. And that really has nothing to do with me, just more the appreciation of the curl, because the curl is a dead art form." [via XXL]

Fetty Wap Covers VIBE

Fetty Wap Performing Fetty Wap graces the cover of VIBE's new digital issue. Fetty Wap was recently on the cover of XXL as a member of its 2015 Freshman class, and today, he's popped up on the cover of another big-name publication. He's the cover star of VIBE's new issue. Read excerpts from his interview below, check out the cover in the gallery above and read the full thing here. VIBE: Your grandfather had a church and some of your family members played in the choir. But where did music start for you? Fetty Wap: Well, my mother, little sister and brother sing, but I liked to play drums. I started playing when I was three years old. Back then, I was watching my uncle play drums and my father play the keyboard in church.\ There’s a lot of R&B influence in your music. But was it rap music specifically that caught your attention? Or were there other genres that you were into? It was rap, definitely. I didn’t listen to music that much when I was young. It wasn’t until I found out about Gucci Mane. That was really when I got into music. My first iPod just had Guwop’s Chicken Talk mixtape on it at first. I remember when I got it, the first song I heard was “Chicken Talk” with DJ Burn One. Ever since then I was hooked. Were there any other rappers that really influenced you? Not really. You know… people still call me Gucci back where I’m from in Paterson. Now, they call me Wap, though. They’d be like “Gucc,” not Gucci all the time. That used to be my Facebook name — Fetty Guwap. One of my proudest moments in music was being featured on a Gucci song this year. Fetty Wap Vibe Cover

Usher And Justin Bieber Are Getting Sued For $10 Million

Justin Bieber & Usher An R&B singer named De Rico is suing Justin Bieber and Usher for $10 million. A R&B singer named De Rico is suing Justin Bieber and Usher for $10 million in damages for ripping off his song "Somebody to Love," reports Reuters. De Rico, otherwise known as Devin Copeland, is claiming that three Bieber-Usher tracks constitute copyright infringement by way of "beat pattern, time signature, and similar chords and lyrics." De Rico originally filed the lawsuit two years ago. It was initially thrown out by District Judge Arenda Wright Allen; the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia voted by a 3-0 margin on Thursday to return the case to Judge Allen. "After listening to the Copeland song and the Bieber and Usher songs as wholes, we conclude that their choruses are similar enough and also significant enough that a reasonable jury could find the songs intrinsically similar," Circuit Judge Pamela Harris wrote. Prediction: Bieber and Usher win. Any other predictions? [via HHDX]

A Former LAPD Detective Believes He Knows Who Shot Tupac

2 Pac A former LAPD detective believes he has the key to unlocking Tupac's murder. Scores of theories regarding Tupac's murder that fateful Las Vegas night in 1996 have circulated over the years, from the vaguely compelling to the utterly insane. Now Vice reports that a former LAPD detective named Russell Poole says he believes he knows the identity of the perpetrators. Poole's story goes like this: A jailhouse informant wrote a local crime reporter telling him that Malcolm Patton, his brother, and a Long Beach Crip named Donald Smith killed Tupac with assistance from Death Row security guard Reggie Wright, Jr. and Suge Knight's wife. The crime reporter than passed along the information to Poole. Poole spoke with Vice for the most part because he wants the 19-year ordeal to end. ”If this was Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra who got murdered, there would’ve been arrests a long time ago,” he said. “This case can be solved, but needs police follow-up. There are clues sitting right in front of the police. It’s a travesty of justice.” The veracity of as Patton's jailhouse statement/boast is hard to confirm, as many inmates would likely find going down in history as the dude who shot Tupac preferable to not going down in history at all. Nevertheless, it is an appealing story. Poole suggests that Tupac stole the lyrics to "Brenda's Got A Baby" from Smith, a.k.a. Death Row affiliate Lil 1/2 Dead (mentioned in Snoop Dogg's "Lil Ghetto Boy"), thus giving him a personal vendetta against Tupac. Story check out? [via XXL]

Bobby Shmurda's Lawyer Says The Industry Is Making An Example Of Him

Bobby Shmurda Bobby Shmurda's lawyer says Sony Music should have bailed him out of jail. Kenneth Alexander, attorney to Bobby Shmurda, told Doggie Diamonds in a recent interview that Sony Music should take care of his client's $2 million bail. "They didn't want to come in and make a bail for this young man," he said. "They wanted to capitalize on the energy that he had, but they wanted no parts of getting him out." Shmurda has expressed his desire to get of his deal with Epic Records, a division of Sony Music, as far back as February. Montgomery lamented that other rappers have shown little support for Shmurda beyond the occasional "Free Shmurda" blast on social media. "These rappers aren’t millionaires," he says. "They’re personalities and brands and that’s all they are." The above claims are to be expected from Shmurda's attorney, but Montgomery was nevertheless eloquent as he discussed what he believed to be the exploitation of his client. "It is my opinion that Ackquille Pollard aka Bobby Shmurda was made an example of," Montgomery said. "He represents a certain energy that is everywhere in this American space, I think even four corners of the Earth where you have black men who have very little resources and opportunity and they're taking advantage of what is available to them. I think he was made an example. Whenever you have a prosecutor send out pressers before they make an arrest and a perp walk, then there's something else going on." [via Hip HopDX]

Riff Raff Reveals "Peach Panther" Cover Art

Riff Raff Flexin Riff Raff shares artwork for his upcoming album "Peach Panther." The other week Riff Raff unveiled the title to his sophomore album, keeping the color theme alive with the title Peach Panther. He had actually tweeted about this album, and another, Purple Panther, back in December, saying he'd drop both June 1st but obviously that was never realized-- so it seems he's honed in on Peach Panther as his primary focus and sophomore effort. The Houston native, who has become increasingly buff since delivering his debut Neon Icon, touted some big theoretical features when speaking on the album, saying he "may" get Drake, Lil Wayne, and the Biebz. We'll have to see if those come to fruition, however one feature that appears legitimate is a Gucci Mane collaboration. The two artists have been teasing fans about a GuWop x Jody Highroller collab, and with the reveal of Peach Panther artwork, Gucci Mane has confirmed you can expect him on the release. Gucci Mane also tweeted to expect the album in summer 2015. Take a look at the cover art, which Riff Raff shared on Instagram, as well as Gucci's tweet below.

Curren$y & Sledgren Announce "Revolver"

Currensy Curren$y and Sledgren are working on "Revolver". Is it an EP or a film? Curren$y is always working on a new project, and while we know he and Wiz Khalifa already having something new up their sleeves, Spitta announced yet another collaborative project on Instagram recently. Revolver will pair him with the always impressive Sledgren for 6 "bullets," which could be code for six records, or something else entirely. Some fans have already assumed the project is an EP, but Spitta also namechecks CJ Wallis, who happens to be a filmmaker, making it seem as though "Revolver" may be a short film. Either way, it will seemingly feature some music from Spitta and Sledgren. No news on when it'll be released, but Curren$y doesn't generally make us wait very long. Of course, the rapper has already given us Pilot Talk 3 and Even More Saturday Night Car Tunes this year, so we'll have plenty to tide us over before Revolver is released.

50 Cent Threatens To Sue MediaTakeOut For Leaking La La Anthony Sex Scene From "Power"

50 Cent suggests MediaTakeOut have a lawsuit coming their way. 50 Cent doesn't like to be messed with. Recently, gossip site MediaTakeOut got a hold of a scene from the rapper's Starz TV show, "Power," and seeing that it was a sex scene starring actress La La Anthony, the site decided to post it up early. Fif isn't very happy about the leak, posting a video today in which he suggests MTO have a lawsuit comingthere way. “Shout out to MediaTakeOut for showing La La some love and showing her scene early,” he said. “For doing that, I’m not gonna take it personal, so don’t take it personal with me when they sue you til you’re blue in the face.” MTO has since taken the original page down, so perhaps they will be facing some legal consequences. We'll keep you posted with any new information. The second season of Power is airing now on Starz.

Kanye West Slept Through Part Of North West's Birthday Celebration

Kanye West apparently got some heavy eyelids during a "Frozen" sing-along show at Disneyland. The ambitious birthday celebration for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's daughter, Nori, certainly seemed a bit exhausting, and Kanye's power nap during a "Frozen" performance that day confirms it. The couple rented out the Disneyland theme park for Nori's 2nd birthday, and while plenty of photos show the family having a great time, a new picture has surfaced that shows Yeezy getting a bit of shut-eye. TMZ points out that an actress in the "Frozen" singalong performance at Disneyland noticed Ye wasn't as into the show as the rest of his party, writing on Facebook, “when you perform for the Kardashian family for North’s birthday…and Kanye sleeps through the whole show.” To be fair, the workaholic rapper was probably in the studio pretty late the night before, and a "Frozen" singalong sounds REALLY boring.
