Mac Miller's 3rd Studio Album Is Done

Mac Miller Mac Miller's 3rd album will drop imminently. Mac Miller announced today via a string of tweets that his 3rd studio album is finally finished. Two days ago we broke down the long and winding road Miller took to piece together the album. Indeed, as he wrote today, it took him 9 different albums that will never see the light of day before he got what he wanted. "I am now listening to the finished album for the first time and it was worth every step that was this journey," he wrote. "Everything is happening exactly how it's supposed to. You will hear soon. Very soon. I can't wait for you guys to hear it. I've never felt this good about a project before." Stay tuned for his 3rd studio album dropping imminently.

R. Kelly Announces "Buffet" Album Release Date

R.Kelly R. Kelly preps his new album, "Buffet," for September. R. Kelly is prepping a follow up to 2013's Black Panties, with another title overloaded with sexual undertones, Buffet. It's been a minute since we heard from Kellz, he did appear on a recent King Los track "Glory to the Lord," but apart from that music has been slim. It sounds like his album is nearing completion, as he's announced the release date on Instagram today. Buffet's release date coincides with a show he's doing at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn-- September 25th being the date of the show and the album's release. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, July 31st. View the Instagram post below. Are you excited to hear a new album from the r'n'b singer?

Ice Cube Says The "Straight Outta Compton" Soundtrack is Dropping This Week

Ice Cube,Dr. Dre an Friend The "Straight Outta Compton" soundtrack, rumored to feature new music from Kendrick Lamar, Eminem and Dr. Dre, is apparently dropping on Friday. Long in-the-works N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton" is finally scheduled to drop two weeks from Friday (on August 14th), but what about its almost equally-hyped soundtrack? Earlier this month, we got word from director F. Gary Gray that Dr. Dre would be executive producing, and it would feature Eminem and Kendrick Lamar, which only made for more anticipation. Yesterday, Ice Cube let slip that the album will arrive on Friday. Speaking with Gray, Jason Mitchell (who plays Eazy-E in the film) and his son on Power 99, Cube announced that the soundtrack will drop this Friday, August 1st. No other details were shared. In the rest of the interview, the cast and crew members of "Straight Outta Compton" discuss a possible reunion tour, police violence and Suge Knight.

Meek Mill Booed In Toronto Last Night

Meek Mill Meek Mill showed up late to last night's Canadian "Pinkprint" tour show, and he was booed by the audience. Although Norm Kelly advised against it, Meek Mill headed to the Six last night for a stop on "The Pinkprint" tour with Nicki Minaj. The Philly native was hit with a (second) diss record from Drake several hours after the Toronto show, perhaps a calculated move on Drake's part. Meek was set to go on stage at 8 PM, however his presence wasn't made until 10 PM. Reports say that the rapper was held up at the Canadian border, unsurprisingly considering he does have a record. When he finally arrived at the Molson Ampitheatre, fans (or non-fans) were upset, and booed him when he hit the stage. Meek only got through four records before calling it quits.

VH1 Announces Premiere Date For The Game's New Reality Series "She Got Game"

the Game The premiere of The Game's reality dating show "She's Got Game" is fast approaching. The Game's reality dating show "She's Got Game" is fast approaching, with VH1 setting the premiere for Aug. 10 at 9 p.m. According to VH1, the show's premise is as follows: "At the outset of the series, 10 of The Game's celebrity friends will be tapped as matchmakers. Each of these celebs (men and women), will put forward who they believe to be his perfect girl. Whether it is a beauty from the Bronx or a corn-fed farmer's daughter in Kansas, the celebrities are free to choose any woman they think will win The Game's heart. With his future in mind and each celeb's pride on the line, you'd best believe that the stakes are high. "On the first episode, 10 women will arrive at The Game's Los Angeles mansion with the expectation that they'll be moving in. Once the kick-off party gets going, The Game will announce that all 10 women will actually be accompanying him on an upcoming tour that starts...the next day. The first show is in Los Angeles and then it's off to the rest of the country. The women will be whisked away to a private jet waiting nearby and set off on an insane adventure. "Over the next 9 episodes, The Game and the girls will travel in style from Las Vegas to Miami and everything in between via private jet, tour bus, boat, and of course, luxury cars. In each city they'll get to know The Game better by going on extraordinary dates, seeing the city, and making connections with him. The girls will learn to live life on the road to see what his life is really like as The Game performs and makes appearances in cities all across America. In every city, the party ends for one of the girls who is sent packing. In the end, only one woman will be able to say She's Got Game." Sounds incredible. The Game is a veteran in the world of reality TV, having previously starred in VH1 show "Marrying The Game," which followed his family life and relationship with then-fiance Tiffney Cambridge. "She's Got Game" promises to be even better.

David Banner Sues Young Money Over Alleged Unpaid Royalties

David Banner David Banner is looking for over $100,000 in royalties for his contributions to the Young Money catalog. Cash Money doesn't exactly have the best reputation with paying its artists, and generally, producers get an even stiffer deal. From Mannie Fresh to Bangladesh, we've seen many beatmakers express frustration with collecting what they're owed from the label, and today, David Banner has joined the club. The Mississippi songwriter has filed a lawsuit with Young Money (the imprint Wayne is currently attempting to cut from teh Cash Money Umbrella), claiming he was promised $137,787.19 in royalties back in 2012. The tracks named are Tha Carter III's batshit banger, "La La," and experimental fan favorite, "Pussy Monster," (which, as far as we know, never appeared on an official project). He also says he's owed $15,392.57 alone for We Are Young Money album cut, "Streets Is Watchin'". With the legal battles between Wayne and Birdman still raging, it's not clear who'll have to pay the bill on this one. We'll keep you up to dat with any new information.

Fetty Wap the First Male Rapper to Have Two Top Ten Singles Since Lil Wayne

Ferry Wap Fetty Wap makes history. Fetty Wap clocked on the Billboard charts this week with "Trap Queen"at No. 6 and "My Way" feat. Monty at No. 7, making him the first male rapper to hold down two concurrent Top 10 singles since Lil Wayne accomplished the feat in 2011 with "She Will" & "How To Love." "Trap Queen" is now in its 27th week in the Top 100, while "My Way" skyrocketed from No. 87 to the No. 7 spot this week. Fetty's "679" is currently positioned at No. 18, making him the first male rapper with three songs in the top 20 at the same time since Eminem, who accomplished the feat in 2013 with "The Monster," "Rap God," and "Berzerk." Fetty is sitting with rare company.

Young Thug Waives His Preliminary Hearing In Terroristic Threats Case

Young Thug Young Thug chose to waive his preliminary hearing in court. Young Thug recently had a string of different charges brought against him. First, he was arrested for making "terroristic threats" to a mall security guard, after he threatened to shoot the mall cop in his face. Following that, after the police raided his home, he racked up more charges on drugs and weapons. He's out on bail for the former arrest, and was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing in DeKalb County court on Monday. He waived that option though, meaning the case will proceed directly to trial-- a preliminary hearing would have given him a chance to have the case thrown out if there was not sufficient evidence. We'll keep you posted as the case goes to trial. [via AJC]

Charlamagne the god Gives Funk Flex "Donkey Of the Day"

Funk Flex Charlamange Tha God bestows the "Donkey of the Day" honor to Funk Flex. Yesterday, Funkmaster Flex dropped the ball (or, Meek Mill dropped the ball and therefore Funk Flex could not catch the metaphorical ball), when the Meek Mill diss track he promised Hot 97 listeners fell through. Instead, Meek trolled fans on twitter with a fake "diss" track, and a petition was started to boot Funkmaster Flex off the air. The Ls keep coming this morning, as competing radio personality, Charlamagne Tha God, gave Funk his "Donkey of the Day" award for disappointing listeners. Hot 97 and Power 105.1 personalities have been known to beef, this actually follows up Peter Rosenberg calling out C Tha God on twitter the other week. Do you think Funk deserves "Donkey of the Day"? Listen to the audio clip from the announcement below, where Charlmagne breaks it down. He actually groups Flex in the same category of other recent disappointing "80s icons," Bill Cosby and Hulk Hogan, and calls this the "passing of his credibility and career."

Ice-T & CoCo are Expecting Their First Child Together

Ice-T and Coco Ice-T and Coco announced that they're expecting their first child together early this morning. Ice-T and Coco Austin have been married for 14 years, and while Ice already has 2 children from previous relationships (as well as a 20-year-old grandson), he and Coco have no children of their own, but that will be changing very soon. Coco shared the news today on Twitter, she's pregnant -- and has been for a while. According to Austin, the announcement was first made on her new talk show with Ice-T, which was recorded last week, but won't air until August 3rd. "It was a really awesome moment. I cried," Coco said of alerting the live studio audience to the pregnancy. "It was a nice feeling to know that the world knows and I don't have to hide it." Ice-T echoed Coco's excitement on Twitter this morning, taken aback by the positive reception to the news. "We want to say ThankYou to everyone for the overwhelming LOVE you are sending us! We appreciate you," he wrote. Look out for their new talk show, Ice & Coco (which looks a whole lot like the similarly titled, Regis & Kelly) on August 3rd.

The Weeknd Speaks On "Beauty Behind The Madness" in NY Times Profile

The Weeknd The Weeknd aims to step out from behind the shadows, and into full-fledged pop stardom, on "Beauty Behind the Madness." The Weeknd recently announced his new album, a sophomore effort to follow up Kiss Land, or his third album if you count Trilogy. The project, Beauty Behind the Madness, has already seen the success of two singles, "Can't Feel My Face" and "The Hills." In a new profile of Abel Tesfaye by The New York Times, we delve deeper into the once-mysterious singer's past, as well as the road leading up to Beauty Behind the Madness, and what to expect from it. The article from Jon Caramanica (which he says on twitter was four years in the making) juxtaposes The Weeknd's desire to be worldwide famous, on the scale of Michael Jackson, against his penchant for obscurity, and coming to terms with the fact that he does he want to be a pop idol. Apparently, this was all in mind during the creation of BBHM, and it sounds a bit calculated, from The Weeknd's "50 Shades of Grey" hit "Earned It" to his Ariana Grande collaboration, "Love Me Harder," everything is leading up to that pop stardom desire. The Weeknd admitted to wanting to change his tact, "I felt I had to change who I was," he told Caramanica in the profile. "These kids, you know, they don’t have a Michael Jackson. They don’t have a Prince. They don’t have a Whitney. Who else is there? Who else can really do it at this point?" As the story continues, Tesfaye details growing up in Scarborough, Ontario, Ethiopian influences, dropping out of high school at 17, and doing just about any and every drug available to him, before properly transcending into The Weeknd, getting co-signs from OVO, and developing a cult following. Following Kiss Land's release, the singer was unimpressed with the numbers the record did. The head of urban A&R at his label, Wendy Goldstein, spoke on that impacting his decisions for the next LP: "The underperforming of that record in his own expectations of what it was supposed to do shook him to his core," Goldstein says. "I said, ‘You wanna be the biggest in the world?’ He said, ‘I absolutely wanna be the biggest in the world.’ " This led to Goldstein tapping Max Martin for BBHM, as The Weeknd aimed to make pop records that still had his trademark sensibilities. "If I’m gonna be the biggest in the world," The Weeknd told Goldstein, ‘"I need a handful of songs like that." After Martin's team presented the singer with a bunch of pre-written material, The Weeknd rejected everything, and the two collaborated from scratch. Nearing the end of the profile, we get to hear about the oft-rumored relationship The Weeknd has with model Bella Hadid. When asked if he's in love, he says, "I don’t know, to be honest with you. I don’t think so. Maybe. It’s no, it’s yes, it’s maybe." As for the forthcoming, highly anticipated album: "It’s about me being who I am and stepping out of my comfort zone to try to feel something else besides what I’ve been feeling the past four years." He continued, "Ups and downs. In my past albums, there were never ups." Beauty Behind the Madness drops August 28th. Read the full NY Times story here.

Chris Brown Begs to Leave The Phillipines

Chris Brown Chris Brown does not like it in the Philippines. Chris Brown really wants to leave the Philippines. The singer is currently moored in Manila after the Philippine Department of Justice blocked his attempt to exit the country as his plane sat on the tarmac ready to head to his next show in Hong Kong. It's only been a day or two, but he's already going stir crazy. In a new Instagram post, he got down as his knees and begged to anyone who was listening for help. “Please, please let us leave!” he said before getting up and successfully executing a backflip. Looks like he's hoping President Obama might call in a favor on his behalf, based on his caption: “OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Previously Breezy hit the worm and his whip as he pretended to go through customs. He appears to have a pretty dope setup over there in Manila, so hard to feel too bad for him.

Taylor Swift Apologizes to Nicki Minaj

Taylor Swift Taylor Swift offers an apology to Nicki Minaj, following the misunderstanding about Nicki's VMAs rant. Here goes the second apology of the day, in an unrelated beef to the Meek Mill/Drake incident. Meek Mill formally apologized to his boo Nicki Minaj during their show last night (although he shouted out Drizzy, he didn't publicly apologize, yet). Now T Swift has hopped on twitter to publicly apologize to Nicki Minaj for misconstruing her rant against the MTV VMAs. When Nicki Minaj found out that, somehow, "Anaconda" wasn't nominated for Video of the Year at the annual awards show, she went off on twitter, questioning whether it was because of her race/the fact she is a female MC. Taylor Swift joined the conversation, thinking that she was pitting women against each other. "I've done nothing but love & support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..," she wrote, to which the Barbz leader replied, "Huh? U must not be reading my tweets. Didn't say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u should speak on this." Now Taylor has cleared the air, tweeting, "I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I'm sorry, Nicki."

Rick Ross Takes Shots at 50 Cent On Wing Stop Remix

Rick Ross Red Tee Rick Ross takes aim at 50 Cent in new lyrics found on his "Wing Stop" remix. Rick Ross and 50 Cent have been at odds with each other for a minute. Their feud started in 2009, supposedly at the BET Awards, and things spiraled out from there. 50 went on to expose Rozay's background as a correctional officer, and got Ross' baby mama involved. You may recall he also released a series of cartoons poking fun at "Officer Ricky." Obviously we've seen some of the aftermath of this beef recently, what with 50 Cent now having to pay Lavonia Leviston $5 million for posting her sex tape online. This, on top of a previous lawsuit with Sleek Audio, seems to have put 50's financial situation over the edge, as he filed for bankruptcy. Rick Ross responded to 50's filing in the opening bars on the MMG "Wing Stop" remix, which dropped this morning. On the record he mentions 50's alias, Pimpin Curly. He also says that he "ethered" 50 years ago. What do you think? "50's financial woes I never speak of them, years ago Pimpin Curly, you know we ethered them, at the Mayweather fight and I got my gun tucked, second row and I'm smiling just like I'm Young Buck." Listen to the full record here.

Eminem might Be an "Honorary" N.W.A. Member on their Reunion Tour

Eminem Eminem may serve as an 'honorary member" in a reunited N.W.A. With the Straight Outta Compton film right around the corner, there's been a lot of talk about N.W.A. in recent months, and a few of the members even reunited on stage. Apparently, the studio behind the movie is looking to launch an official N.W.A. tour in Europe, this time with all surviving members, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, MC Ren​, Ice Cube in tow, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, another notable MC may be filling a spot as well. Universal Chief Donna Langley says that if the tour gets off the ground, Eminem may perform as an "honorary member," saying "We don't have anything settled yet with everyone's schedules, but we think it can create a lot of buzz." No word on what Em's duties in the group will be, but having him perform the verses of Eazy-E (who passed away in 1995) may be a bit controversial. Would you go see this tour? Let us know in the comments.

Kirko Bangz Signs With 300 Entertainment

Kirko Bangz Kirko Bangz is 300's latest signee. Just yesterday, Houston's Kirko Bangz linked up with Fetty Wap, the most recent signee at Lyor Cohen's 300 Entertainment label, and now he's announced that he's also been brought into the fold at the label. Today he joins his "Worry Bout It" co-conspirator as a 300 Entertainment artist. Joining Wap, Migos and Young Thug at the label, Bangz cites his past work with co-founder Todd Moscowitz as one of the reasons for his decision: “I had a lot of success with Todd Moscowitz with ‘Drank In My Cup,’ and I’ve been working with Selim for over four years, so doing this partnership with them is just like I’m going back to the home team. I feel like LeBron James, except I’m going to win the championship. This is the #LMGTakeover.” Let's see what this does for his career

Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj Blow $40,000 at Strip Club

Meek mill and nicki minaj closeup Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj endorse these strippers. Nicki Minaj is quite a catch. Not only is she one of the best rappers in the game, she's also totally down to hit the strip club (though "I Endorse These Strippers" should have made you well aware of both those facts already). Meek Mill and Nicki hit up V Live Houston over the weekend, and made sure to "Throw Sum Mo" to the dancers, reportedly going through close to $40,000. The couple has a lot to celebrate, with the Pinkprint tour opening to a huge audience in Dallas, and Meek earning the third highest rap sales week of the year thus far. If that doesn't merit a trip to one of H-Town's best strip clubs, we're not sure what does.

Chris Brown Reportedly Suspects Close Friends in Home Invasion

Chris Brown Red Flannel Those responsible for the recent home invasion of Chris Brown may be closer to the singer than previously reported. We already knew that Chris Brown's mother believed that the singer's friends were responsible for the recent robbery of his home, but it seems both Chris and the police are on the same page. TMZ reports that police believe members of the Bloods could have been involved in the crime, as well as a club promoter who apparently knew Brown was keeping $50 grand in a safe within his home. Both the cops and Brown are now said to suspect people close to him. Another source cited by the publication alleged that Chris has already been urged to cut certain friends off. So far, no arrests have been made. We'll keep you posted on any updates on the situation.

DJ Khaled Counter-Suing Jeweler Over Fake Diamonds

Dj Khaled red jacket DJ Khaled is now counter-suing the jewelry company that accused him of failing to pay for merchandise. DJ Khaled is a pretty blingy dude, and while we generally assume his jewelry is real, it seems the DJ may have been rocking some fake diamonds, but apparently, he paid for them as if they were legit. Rafaello & Co. launched a lawsuit against Khaled when he allegedly failed to pay his bill, but he's now counter-suing the company for a number of things, including giving him some fake merchandise. While Khaled admits to doing business with the company from 2008 to 2013, he claims that whether he returned am item or bought it, no receipts were ever exchanged, and those being presented for the lawsuit were drawn up after the fact. He went on to accuse Rafaello & Co. of selling him what was said to be a gold Cuban link chain with 98 diamonds for $110,000. He says the jewelry was worth less than $30,000 in reality, making his $240,000 insurance for the piece extremely unnecessary. The jeweler's original suit alleged that Khaled had requested a number of items for a 15-day "try out," but never returned the jewelry or paid for the merchandise. Seems like someone's lying here. Whose side are you on?

Drake Debuted a New Song At His Barber's Wedding

Drake Gray sweatsuit Drake debuted new music over the weekend, at his barber's wedding. Does Drake Season ever end? The rapper continues to keep a chokehold on the rap game, from his participation in Apple Music's Beats 1 radio, to his co-sign remixes, to his features, the rapper can seemingly do no wrong. Following the debut of his anticipated "Energy" music video, he hinted at a Views From The 6 release date which has yet to be confirmed. Nonetheless he's definitely getting us ready, with his string of recent remixes, and features for Future ("Where Ya At"), Majid Jordan ("My Love"), The Game ("100"), Meek Mill ("R.I.C.O.")and Juicy J ("Tryna Fuck"). Today a preview of a new song which Drake debuted at his barber's recent wedding has been unearthed, thanks to the efforts of KTT. Drizzy sings over the drum-riddled production in the short snippet that we have, which some users are saying is the long-rumored remix of D.R.A.M.'s "Cha Cha." We'll have to wait for the full version of the record to surface. Check out thie short snippet below, let us know what you think. Drizzy also shared a bunch of photos from the wedding on Instagram.

Boosie Badazz Annual Party Shutdown By Baton Rouge City Government

Boosie Badazz A Boosie Badazz endorsed event was shut down by city officials for fear of violence. A Boosie Badazz-hosted event called the Black & White Affair was supposed to take place today, but after over a decade of annual celebrations, the Baton Rouge government has decided to put a stop to the event. "We were informed that the powers that be from City Government (including the Mayor) have CANCELLED our Black & White event scheduled at the River Center this Saturday. Our legal team is diligently working on this matter," T.J. Jackson, an organizer of the party wrote on Instagram. According to Jackson, after speaking with city officials, it was pointed out that Boosie was thought of as a danger. "They did mention that there are some concerns because of Boosie,” he explained. “They said they think it might be a threat of danger of violence, and they don’t want that to split open to downtown." Jackson defended the rapper. "He loves Baton Rouge dearly," he argued, "but that’s why he moved from here, so he wouldn’t have to deal with this type of scrutiny and judgment." Here's hoping they can get things together next year.

Future's "DS2" Sales Projections Just Got a Huge Boost

Future Future will be having a bigger sales week than previously reported. Future's hype seems to be at an all-time high, but while the initial first week sales projections for his new album, DS2, eclipsed those of his previous two albums, the number didn't seem to match the buzz. While internet hype is by no means a measure of an album's performance on the charts, it looks like the numbers were actually lowballed. While HDD first reported that DS2 would move around 75k, they've now upped the prediction to 125-135k in sales, and 135-145 with streams. This is quite a boost for Fewtch, who could possibly pull ahead of A$AP Rocky for the fourth biggest rap debut of 2015. He should land at number one without contest. What do you think of the numbers? Are they more representative of where Future's at right now?

Jeremih Arrested for DUI

Jeremih Jeremih spent the early hours of his birthday in jail after being arrested for a DUI. Today marks Jeremih's 28th birthday, and things got off to an unfortunate start for the R&B star early this morning. Driving through the San Fernando Valley around 2:15 AM, he was pulled over by California Highway Patrol arrested on a misdemeanor DUI charge. TMZ reports that Jeremih spent the rest of the night behind bars, but posted bail (which was set at $15,000) around 11 this morning. We'll keep you updated on the case. In other Jeremih related news, his Late Nights: The Album remains delayed as ever. The Hits Daily Double-announced date of July 17th has come and gone with no sign of it, not to mention the fact that the early, digital-only release never surfaced. Hopefully this new charge against Jeremih doesn't cause any further delays.

Eminem Says Hip Hop "In A Good Place Right Now"

Eminem Eminem believes hip hop is in good hands. In a new interview with the New York Times, Eminem stated his belief that hip hop is in a good place in 2015. The interview mostly addressed Eminem's role and experience working on the soundtrack for the upcoming 50 Cent-produced film Southpaw, but also took the time to share his opinion on the state of the genre. Here's what he had to say: "I try to stay up on everything that’s out. I love [Lil] Wayne, Drake, Big Sean, Schoolboy Q. I love Kendrick [Lamar]. I just try to pay attention to what’s out. Wayne puts out a new song, and my ears perk up. There are certain artists that make me do that just because of the caliber that they rhyme at — it’s like candy to me. Kendrick, the way he puts albums together — front to back, they’re like pieces of art. But hip-hop needs Drake, too. Hip-hop needs Big Sean. I feel like hip-hop is in a good place right now. There’s this balance of things going on, and it feels like some of the best rappers are the most successful. Sometimes that’s not the case."

Birdman is Suing Tidal Over Lil Wayne's "Free Weezy" Album

Birdman Birdman is now taking aim at Jay Z's TIDAL in a new lawsuit. Yeeesh. This Birdman/Lil Wayne beef is getting confusing, and is definitely far from over. We've heard Lil Wayne going at his Cash Money counterparts on his recent project FWA, and recently the two reportedly clashed while at the same Miami nightclub. As if that wasn't enough, it's now being reported/rumored that Young Thug and Birdman were behind the shooting at Lil Wayne's tour bus the other month. Now back to the legal side of things, Birdman is suing TIDAL over the Free Weezy Album. The lawsuit, which was obtained by TMZ, claims that TIDAL is an "illegal intermeddler" and that Cash Money exclusively owns the rights to Lil Wayne's music. The lawsuit throws a few jabs at Jay Z's streaming service, stating that streaming FWA was "a desperate and illegal attempt to save their struggling streaming service." According to the suit, TIDAL claims that Weezy gave them the rights to stream his music in return for an ownership stake in the company. Cash Money retaliates by quoting portions of Wayne's contract, which specifically says that Wayne does not have the power to license his own music. It doesn't end there, CM actually throws shots at the album itself, saying it got "tepid reviews" and could hurt Cash Money. Birdman is suing TIDAL for $50 million.

Young Thug Facing New Drug and Weapons Felony Charges

young thug and birdman Young Thug hit with fresh drug and weapons charges. Young Thug is facing drug and weapon charges after his home was raided yesterday afternoon, reports Mike Petchenik. Thug was arrested Wednesday morning arrest for threatening to shoot a security guard. This pair of charges is unrelated to his being named in an indictment that alleges he and Birdman were a part of a conspiracy to kill Lil Wayne. This is getting pretty ridiculous. It's hard to keep all the facts straight. Here is a rough timeline: 7/15 6am: Thug arrested without incident from his house in Sandy Springs, GA for making terrorists threats to a mall security guard. 7/15 1:30pm: ATF and Sandy Springs police raid Thug's house. 7/15 9:00pm: Thug named in the Lil Wayne conspiracy indictment. 7/16 10am: Thug reportedly charged with drug and weapons charges. He remains detained at DeKalb County Jail. As of last night his bail was set at $11,200. That number is likely much higher now.

Tyga is Being Sued By Former Last Kings Collaborator

Tyga Last Kings Tyga is facing a new lawsuit from a former business partner. Tyga is in the news once more today, and once again, it's not on a positive note. The rapper, who recently dropped The Gold Album for free on Spotify enraging Birdman, is now being sued by his former business partner. According to the documents filed, Chuon Guen Lee states that she formed the clothing line, Last Kings, with Tyga in January 2013. She says T-Raww promised to promote it heavily and get it inside popular chains like Tilly's. However, none of that happened, instead she claims that Tyga ran off with half a million in merchandise and started another company, with another partner, Egypt Kings. Guen Lee is now suing Tyga and his new partner for $1.6 million. A rep for Tyga has since responded to these allegations, stating, "These, like other allegations, are completely false. This was a business relationship that went sour and was ended last year. We learned of the complaint via TMZ and are aware that individuals will continue to attempt to cash in on Tyga's success."

Susan Sarandon Thanks Asap Rocky and Action Bronson for "1 Train" Shoutout

Susan Sarandon Susan Sarandon may be 68 years old, but she's still got her ear to the streets-- it just takes her a couple of years to hear things. Apparently, Sarandon just took in ASAP Rocky's "1 Train," and one line in particular caught her attention; "You see us scramblin', sellin' Susan Sarandon/ The cloud of smoke like the Phantom." The reference came from Action Bronson, who Sarandon mentioned alongside Rocky in a tweet thanking them for the shout out. Not only that, she offered to let them explain the line in a smoke session, writing "Not sure what it means, but let’s blaze one & talk about it some time." We know through Rocky's infatuation with Kathy Griffin that he already has a thing for older women, so we're interested to see how this plays out. Bronson has already replied with the title of one of Susan's most iconic films, "THELMA AND LOUISE!!!!," a movie we're not surprised he's a fan of. For future reference, any reference to a "white girl" by a rapper has the potential to be a stand-in for cocaine. See Migos' "Hannah Montana" for further examples.

TDE's Youtube Channel Has been "Terminated" due to Copyrite Infringement

Kendrick Lamar Grammy performance photo The Top Dawg Entertainment YouTube channel has been shut down. TDE hasn't had a very good week when it comes to copyright claims. Yesterday, news of a lawsuit over the image used on Kendrick Lamar's "The Blacker The Berry" artwork made the rounds, and today, it's been discovered that the label's YouTube page has been "terminated". "Top Dawg Entertainment has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted," reads the message when attempting to access the TDE YoutUbe page. It's unclear if the incidents are related, but we wouldn't be surprised if they were. No one from the TDE camp have commented on the shut down thus far. Chances are, TDE will be able to have the channel reinstated after they work things out with YouTube. There were 191 videos hosted on it, so we hope they'll get things back up-and-running soon.

Future Responds to OG Maco's Comments

Future Image file Future tells OG Maco to start rapping "church bible verses" and talk to him in-person. Last week, Future announced his new album Dirty Sprite 2, and Twitter immediately exploded with excitement. There was one exception though. OG Maco took the chance to go on a rant about hip hop's drug culture and his belief that Future has "destroyed countless lives by making it cool to be a drug addict," attracting the ire of the #FutureHive. Just now, Future fielded some questions on Huffington Post, and one pertained to Maco's rant. Responding to Maco's comments, Future said, "He need to start rapping church bible verses, and then he won't have an opinion on hip hop. He'll talk about Kirk Franklin." Going on, he said: "The young people inspire me. They inspire some things I say and things I do, because the generations have changed. I don’t think I'm destroying lives, it's up to the people to do what they do." He wasn't ready to address Maco directly, instead saying: "OG Maco gonna have to see me and say that to my face. All that Twitter, I’m not with that. But he should say that to me. When I see him, I'ma see him, and if he don’t say nothing, I'm not gonna respect it. But if he say it in my face, he not gonna get the response I'm saying right now. But besides that, I'ma go live my life and not think about him." After ethering Maco, Future proceeded to do the same to Russell Wilson, saying that Ciara never made him wait for sex. Watch the full interview below.

Kendrick Lamar facing Lawsuit Over "The Blacker The Berry" Artwork

Kendrick Lamar The photographer of Kendrick Lamar's "The Blacker The Berry" image is suing him for not licensing the photograph. Kendrick Lamar is the subject of a new lawsuit, which also names Interscope and Aftermath as plaintiffs. The lawsuit comes from a photographer who alleges Kendrick stole his image of a mother breastfeeding for the single art of his single "The Blacker The Berry" off To Pimp A Butterfly. Giordano Cipriani, the photographer, is suing K. Dot and his labels, claiming he took the photo during a 2011 trip to Africa. He says Kendrick never asked permission to use the photo, nor did his record labels pay him for it. The lawsuit was filed July 10th in New York Federal Court according to Bossip. Cipriani is asking the judge for an injunction to stop Kendrick from using the image, as well as damages for the unauthorized use of the image. Cipriani is a freelance photographer and says he makes his living off licensing his images-- he wants Kendrick to fork over $150,000 for each time the image was used, as well, he wants the TDE rapper to pay his lawyer fees.

Meek Mill Celebrates #1 Album With Jay Z, Fabolous, & Kevin Hart

Meek Mill an Jay Z Couples Night Meek Mill celebrates big-time "DWMTM" sales numbers with Jay Z, Fabolous, Kevin Hart, & cupcakes. After putting up whopper first week sales numbers, Meek Mill had great cause to celebrate. And celebrate he did, by getting down with Jay Z at Roc Nation HQ Wednesday afternoon, munching on gourmet miniature cupcakes and sipping on Ace of Spades champagne. Him and Jay then linked up with fellow Philadelphian Kevin Hart and Fabolous that night for Hart's show at Madison Square Garden. We already knew Meek was on top of the rap game, but cupcakes and champagne with Hova sealed the deal. Pretty safe to say that Joe Budden has never enjoyed that particular honor.

Lil Wayne on Young Thug's "Barter 6";"I Appreciate Everything About it ,If he Is Really A Fan"

Lil Wayne waving Lil Wayne speaks candidly about the difference between his own "500 Degreez" and Young Thug's "Barter 6". Lil Wayne made a special call into Q93 last night to talk about his upcoming Lil Weezyana Fest, an event that will see him reuniting with the Hot Boys (minus the incarcerated B.G., we assume) on stage. Things quickly turned into a history lesson, as Wayne shared some stories of his early days recording with Juvenile and the boys. According to Wayne, Birdman and the rest of Cash Money found it hard to see passed Juvie, who they saw as the star of the Hot Boys at the time, but according to Weezy, it was Juvenile who would take him and aside and tell him that he had a special talent. Later on, he got into his third studio album, 500 Degreez, a clear reference to Juvie's multi-platinum 400 Degreez, which he explained was mainly the label's way of saying they would survive Juvenile's departure. "The whole team wasn't really behind me with that album, said Wayne. "The only thing Baby was really behind about that was that it was 500 Degreez. That it was a rebelling album. We were supposed to be showing that Juvie was gone, and that we were still here. That's what Cash Money tried to sell with that album. The next album it was more-- we gave in to whatever Wayne's doing... and that's when the Carter became Tha Carter." He then addressed the similarity some have pointed out between 500 Degreez, and Young Thug's Barter 6; a tribute to Wayne's own series that the two have not seen eye to eye on in the past. Surprisingly, Weezy had some very kind words for Thug. "Here's the difference-- when we did it, we had no problem saying we don't need no Juvie, this is 500 Degreez. [Thug] came out and said 'I'm naming my album such and such because of props, and because I'm such a fan'," he explained. "That's a totally different approach. I'd have to be some kind of monster to overlook that... I'm not that type of person. My mama ain't raise me [like that]... I'd have to be a monster for me to be like 'I don't believe you'. If he say it's from the heart and he's some kind of fan... I love him, hell, thanks bruh. I appreciate everything about it if he's a fan." Does this mean Young Thug and Lil Wayne can get in the studio together sometime soon? Listen to the full interview below. The Thug comments come at the 17:30 mark.

Ciara and Russell Wilson are Abstaining from Sex

Ciara and Russell Wilson Ciara and her current boyfriend Russell Wilson are doing it "Jesus' way." We all knew that Ciara was in for quite a different relationship than she had with Future when she started dating Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson-- the former recently rapped "I didn't want to fuck the bitch, the molly made me fuck her even though she average," and the latter posts daily Bible verses on Twitter. It's now apparent that she went from "Body Party"ing it up with Mr. Freebandz to complete celibacy with Wilson. During a recent Q&A session at a church, Wilson revealed that he and Ciara have been abstaining from sex in their relationship, and shared the story of the divine intervention that led him to this decision: “I was looking at her in the mirror. She was sitting there and God spoke to me. He said, ’I need you to lead her.’ He said, ‘No, I want you, and need you to lead her'... “I told her, ’What would you do if we took all that ’extra stuff’ off the table, and just did it Jesus’ way?’” What does "extra stuff" mean? He clarified, “We’re talking about sex.” “I ain’t gonna lie to y’all now,” he added. “I need you to pray for us. I know y’all have seen her on the screen. If there’s a 10, she’s a 15. So, I need y’all to pray for me.” Watch the interview below. The section in question begins around 24 minutes in

Rick Ross Reportedly Prepping New Album "Black Dollar"

Rick Ross Suited Up Rick Ross readies a new album while he deals with charges of aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and kidnapping. Rick Ross is free at the moment, after making his $2 million bail. The MMG boss, once a prison guard himself, was locked up after kidnapping and assaulting the caretaker of his property.

Ross' lawyer, Adamma McKinnon, told The Daily Beast "her client isn’t fretting the charges" and, on top of that, he's in pretty good spirits as he preps a new album, which McKinnon said was tentatively titled Black Dollar. She also alleged Ross is being targeted because he's famous. "He’s someone who has reached a certain plateau and there are people after celebrities like [Roberts] and looking for monetary gain," McKinnon said. Stay tuned as Ross' legal troubles, and his new album, unfold.

Miguel believes He makes "better music" than Frank Ocean

Miguel photo Miguel prefers his own music to that of Frank Ocean. In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, Miguel asserted the belief that his music is superior to that of Frank Ocean. “I wouldn’t say we were friends,” he said. “To be completely honest—and no disrespect to anyone—I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around.” It's easy to see why Miguel sees himself in competition with Frank Ocean and feels the need to assert his dominance vis-a-vis Frank. Not only is Frank Ocean an extraordinary talent and one of the most highly regarded R&B singers in the world, him and Miguel always drop their shit at the same time. Miguel dropped his debut album All I Want Is You in 2010 three months before Ocean released nostalgia, Ultra, and then he dropped Kaleidoscope Dream in 2012 two months after Ocean release Channel Orange. Now Miguel just dropped WILDHEART last week and Ocean's upcoming project should be out later this summer. What do you make of Miguel's comments? [via PnP]
