Common Weighs In On Drake and Serena Williams Hooking Up

Common Common gives Drake and Serena Williams his blessing. Back when the Common-Drake beef was happening, it was rumored that tennis player Serena Williams played a part-- she was coupled up with Common before the two parted ways, and then she reportedly linked up with Drizzy. Common later admitted that Serena was indeed the fueling factor, saying, "So unfortunately the war might have been over a girl, but at the time I never said that." Now that Drake and Serena may be rekindling their relationship, at least for that one time they were spotted making out at the back of restaurant, how does Common feel about it? Will old beef also be rekindled? Common was approached by TMZ, and he had nothing but nice things to say about Serena and Drake. The two have Com's blessing, "Serena is a friend of mine, as long as she happy I'm good. We dated, that's done, that's been done a long time ago, so it's now like we friends." He added a second time for good measure, "As long as she happy, I'm good."

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West To Receive $440k Settlement for Leaked Engagement Video

Kim Kardashian an Kanye West Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have successfully sued YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley for leaking their engagement video. Two years ago, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West sued the co-founder of YouTube, Chad Hurley, for leaking footage of their lavish engagement through his new venture MixBit. Hurley reportedly "manipulated" his way into AT&T Park in San Francisco, where the engagement took place, in front of Kanye and Kim's close friends and family. Although he had signed a confidentiality agreement, that didn't stop him from secretly filming the proposal and then leaking the video online-- he did receive a good fifteen minutes of fame, though. The issue has finally been settled, and the lawsuit will be dismissed as long as Hurley forks over $440,000 within the next few days.

Chief Keef Reportedly Named His Sons Middle Name After His New Record Label

chief Keef standing According to reports, Chief Keef has named his son’s middle name Filmon Dot Com, after his new record label "Film On." Celebrities and artists have always been known to name their children a little off the beaten path, but what Chief Keef has reportedly just done goes up there as one of the worst (or best) we’ve heard yet. According to DNAinfo, Chief Keef has reportedly named his new baby boy Sno “Filmon Dot Com” Cozart, which is named after his new record label, Film On. The news comes from Owen Phillips, a spokesman for Chief Keef's record label FilmOn, who says that the name was chosen "in order to promote" Keef's upcoming album Bang 3, which drops September 18. "Alki David has announced that Chief Keef and his newest baby mama have agreed to name the newborn Sno FilmOn Dot Com Cozart in order to promote the release of Sosa's double album Bang 3 with FilmOn Music and MondoTunes on September 18," Phillips says in official statement to DNAinfo. FYI, Alki David is a Greek billionaire who owns & operates the Film On label. Take note though that just hours earlier, we reported that this newborn baby’s mama is going after Sosa for child support and hasn’t spoken to him since conception. So now with reports saying she’s agreed to name her baby boy “Filmon Dot Com” it has me questioning the truth to all this. But either way, both stories come from very reliable sources so take as it is and we'll keep you posted. Listen to the audio behind Sosa’s weird new promo route below. (I swear we can’t make this stuff up)

Tyler The Creator Says He's Ban From the Uk for 3 to 5 years

Tyler The Creator Tyler, The Creator is reportedly not allowed in the UK due to lyrics from "Bastard" and "Goblin". Tyler, The Creator is set to perform at quite a few festivals in Europe this summer, but he won't be able to attend following a letter from the secretary of state that states he can not enter the UK for at least 3 years. Tyler delivered the bad news to fans via Twitter today. "Due to circumstances I won't be playing Reading, Leeds, Belfest, and other shows in the UK. Sucks and I'm sorry," he wrote. "Based on lyrics from 2009 I am not allowed in the UK for 3-5 years. Christian Clancy, who serves as Tyler's manager, gave a more in-depth report of the situation, detailing the letter Tyler received from the secretary. tyler has been banned from entering the UK for somewhere between 3 to 5 years per a letter from the secretary of state for the home department of the united kingdom. the letter specifically cites lyrics he wrote 6-7 years ago for his albums bastard and goblin – the type of lyrics he hasn’t written since… highlights from the letter include that his work “encourages violence and intolerance of homosexuality” and “fosters hatred with views thats seek to provoke others to terrorist acts..” i grew up on NWA, eminem and rage against the machine, so its hard to me to fully wrap my head this thought process and its implications. You can read this full thoughts here. We'll keep you updated on any developments, but it's looking like it's something of an irreversible decision.

Music Industry Execs Vote Rap As Most Despised Genre,Give Tidal a Year at Best

Jay Z Billboard's anonymous music industry poll found execs weighing in on their most despised genre, and the longevity of Tidal. Billboard sent out a poll to 50 or so of the top music industry execs earlier this year, and they've now begun to roll out the results. So far, the voters have not been kind to hip-hop, with the few categories that involved the genre coming out pretty negative. First off, rap came out on top for the question: "What genre of music do you despise the most?," with EDM and Pop coming in as runner-ups. Later on, the pretty biased question, "How Long Do You Give Tidal?" had 71% of voters answering "one year or less". Most of the praise was reserved for Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga, who were mentioned both in a question regarding artists to sign, as well as who should be running their own label. Elsewhere, Jimmy Iovine (who's known for his work with Dr. Dre, and is now in business with Apple) was named the most talented exec in the industry, while Mariah Carey listed as an artist execs would like to help make a comeback. Check out the first results from the poll here.

Chief Keef Caught Up In Another Child Support Controversy

chief Keef Chief Keef is alleged to be the father of another child for whom he refuses to pay child support. When Chief Keef fathered his first of many children at the young age of 16 and promptly got served with a request for child support, it was a sign of things to come for him. Since then, he's been almost constantly embroiled in one child support case or another (including at least three in the past two years), and today, another woman has filed documents asking for support for a child that's alleged to be Keef's. TMZ claims that Keef posted and quickly deleted a picture of the two month old child on his Instagram with the caption "The White Sosa" on Monday, but now his lawyer is saying the mother's claims are not true. It seems like Keef's either flip-flopping on this case, or the IG post was faked.

The Game Sued For Copyright Infringement for "Ryda" Artwork

the game An artist is suing The Game for allegedly stealing the "Ryda" single artwork from his Instagram. The Game's already in quite a bit of legal trouble, as he's currently being sued $10 million for an alleged sexual assault and facing up to three years in jail for punching an off-duty cop, and now he may have to cough up even more money. According to TMZ, rapper/designer named Ariza Obey is claiming that Game stole the artwork for the Dej Loaf-assisted single "Ryda" from his Instagram account. The single, released in April, came accompanied by artwork that shows a topless man and woman (neither of them being the artists featured on the track) embracing and wearing masks, which identical to a photo that appeared on Obey's IG account in January. His case claims that Game had access to the photo because "Love & Hip Hop" star Masika Kalysha reposted it. She's friends with Ray J, who shares a manager with Game, and somehow that strengthens Obey's case? We'll let you know how this one plays out. original and Ryda cover side by side

Amber Rose and Blac Chyna Reportedly Getting MTV Reality Show

Amber Rose an Blac Chyna Amber Rose and Blac Chyna may becoming to a TV screen near you. MTV snagged Tyga for his own reality TV show, with the recently debuted show "Kingin with Tyga," and now it appears as though the platform is eyeing his former lover, Blac Chyna, for her own reality gig. Blac Chyna and Amber Rose have become buddy-buddy since they both broke up with their rapper-baby-daddys. They even went as each other's date to the BET Awards this past year, and Amber stirred up some Kardashian beef when she defended Chyna and threw Kylie Jenner under the bus for dating Tyga. In May, rumors surfaced that Amber Rose was receiving her own talk show, however now the plot thickens, as TMZ reports that both Amber and Chyna are getting a reality TV show together. The premise of the show will reportedly center around both women juggling their career and children, it won't be "ratchet." We'll keep you posted when confirmation or more details arrive.

Chris Brown Gets Huge Tattoo on His Head

Chris Brown black jacket Chris Brown gets a tattoo that requires him to shave a huge portion of his hair off. The number of questionable life decisions Chris Brown has made now hovers somewhere in the hundreds, and while many of them are too horrible to find humor in, he's also given people plenty of reason to laugh at his expense. His latest "WTF" move is one of the latter. Announced to the world via a since-deleted Instagram post (I wonder what that comment section looked like), Breezy just got a huge tattoo on the back of his head. Somewhat resembling the face of the historic Venus De Milo statue, the tat takes up almost half of the back of the singer's head, and required him to shave off a good deal of his hair. Check out the picture below and let us know your thoughts. Chris Brown head tattoo

Drake and Serena Williams Rekindle the Flame?

Drake black tee Drake and Serena Williams appear to have rekindled the flame, as they were photographed making out in a Cincinnati restaurant. "My Way" may have been the Fetty Wap song Drake chose to bless with a guest verse earlier this year, but it might have more accurate if he had chosen "Again." He was just spotted making out with tennis star Serena Williams in a Cincinnati restaurant, and if you'll recall from his beef with Common a few years back, this wasn't his first encounter with her. The pair were photographed by TMZ (check the pics here) at a private room in upscale Cincy restaurant Sotto after Williams won the WTA tournament in the city on Sunday night. A few months prior, Drizzy was spotted cheering Williams on at Wimbledon. Back in 2011/2012, Drizzy and Williams' romance sparked diss tracks in the form of Rick Ross, Drake and French Montana's "Stay Schemin'" and Common's rebuttal, "Sweet." Now that Common and Williams have been split up for several years, this latest news shouldn't cause any problems, but you never know.

Rick Ross Getying Sued for $55,000 by Party Promoters

Ricky Ross Rick Ross didn't tweet/gram about their party enough. Promotional group Conexts is suing Rick Ross for $55,000 plus damages for not sufficiently promoting their Super Bowl party, per their agreement. The group planned to throw a party on January 30 at the Scottsdale Mall Amphitheater. According to TMZ, Ross was supposed to post daily on social media about the event for two weeks but only posted once, and the event was cancelled due to meager ticket sales. Rick got paid $55,000 upfront and was slated to receive an additional $55,000 after the party. Given that one promotional tweet from Lebron James' account is worth $140,000, they may have been underpaying him. But they're coming for that money regardless.

Police Interrupted Waka Flocka's "Workin" Video Shoot

Waka Flocka Waka Flocka's "Workin" video shoot was crashed by cops after neighbors complained about the noise. There's a part in Waka Flocka Flame's excellent new track "Workin" where he raps, "We're the young'ns going crazy shooting cops." In footage acquired by TMZ, you can hear Waka and a bunch of others rap this line during the song's video shoot last night... just before the police show up. The gossip site says they were called in by neighbors who complained about the shoot's volume and the audible profanity in the track. Despite the song's lyrics, Waka and his team proved themselves to be law abiding citizens, because they had all the correct permits to shoot the video at the location in question. No arrests were made, and the video shoot was allowed to go on after Big Homie Flock agreed to turn down the volume.

Dr.Dre Offers Apology To the "Women I've Hurt"

Dr. Dre "I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives." Between the unmitigated success of "Straight Outta Compton" and of its soundtrack, Dr. Dre has had a huge month. But theses successes have stirred up memories of the grisly assaults on women he allegedly perpetrated in the early '90s, while he was a member of N.W.A. Many have questioned their omission from the film, especially given that his assault on Dee Barnes was included in the original script. Today Dr. Dre addressed the issue in a statement released to the New York Times: "Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again. I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives." Though he has been reticent regarding the allegations in the past, he's been more willing to discuss them since the release of "Straight Outta Compton." In his Rolling Stone cover story with Ice Cube, he said “I made some fucking horrible mistakes in my life. I was young, fucking stupid. I would say all the allegations aren’t true—some of them are. Those are some of the things that I would like to take back. It was really fucked up. But I paid for those mistakes, and there’s no way in hell that I will ever make another mistake like that again.”

Dj Mustard Elaborates on "Fancy" and "Classic Man" Comments

Dj Mustard DJ Mustard clarifies his comments on Iggy Azaela's "Fancy" and Jidenna's "Classic Man," saying that he has no intention to sue. A few days ago, DJ Mustard stated what was already obvious to many people: Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" and Jidenna's "Classic Man" sound like complete "rip offs" of his style. The two tracks, the former of which is credited as a sample on the latter, have blown up in the wake of Mustard's popularity, but many were also quick to note that the producer's sound itself is pretty derivative of other eras and styles of music. Calling into Hot 97 today, Mustard clarified his remarks. He compared the influence that Roger Troutman, hyphy and G-funk had on his sound to a mac & cheese recipe that gets passed down through generations, changing a bit with each new incarnation. He also reiterated that he has no plans to sue anyone.

Daz Dillinger Says There Will Be A "Straight Outta Compton" Sequel that Focuses on Tupac and Snoop Dogg

Snoop and Pac Straight Outta Compton" "sequel, of sorts" is set to focus on Snoop Dogg and Tupac, according to Daz Dillinger. Very soon after a huge weekend for "Straight Outta Compton," it's become apparent that the film will set off a wave of additional rap biopics in Hollywood. The film has proven to studio executives that the genre can in fact be more profitable than, say, the movie "Notorious" was, and now rappers seem to be clamoring to get their stories told on the big screen. Earlier this week, Master P announced he was casting a film about his and No Limit's rise to fame, and now Dogg Pound veteran Daz Dillinger claims that a "Straight Outta Compton" "sequel, of sorts" is in the works. Speaking to TMZ, Daz said the film will mostly follow Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Warren G and himself, and is tentatively titled "Dogg Pound 4 Life." Dr. Dre and Ice Cube won't be involved in the production side of things this time, but Daz said Cube gave the film his "stamp of approval." Do you think it can live up to the quality of its predecessor?

Amber Rose Amber Rose was used as the face of an alleged prostitution ring out in L.A. without her knowledge or consent. Amber Rose may be a vocal supporter of bad bitches and MILFs everywhere, and she may be organizing a Slut Walk for Los Angeles in October, however, her business ventures don't foray into prostitution-- yet she was unwittingly used to lure young girls into a prostitution ring based in L.A. The strange story comes via TMZ this morning. An L.A. company is now being investigated by the LAPD for soliciting models "for a paid celebrity photoshoot and clothing line." One such model came forward and filed a police report on Monday, claiming that the company was attempting to bring her into their prostitution ring. According to the report, aspiring models who came across the company's Instagram ad (in the photo gallery above) would then contact the company, and they would be told that Amber Rose was the main person involved in choosing the models. The company would then set up a FaceTime session "with" Amber Rose, but in reality the video was grabbed from an old uStream Amber did with her fans-- the model, however, would see Amber Rose struggling with a bad connection before the FaceTime session failed entirely. Eventually, the company would set up the model on a date with a "rich guy." Prior to the date, they would text the model and ask if "they would be willing to be intimate." They would insinuate that this would help with their career and help their work with Amber Rose. The alleged video of Amber that was being used for the fake FaceTime sessions can be seen below.

Jay Z Drops "Summer Sauce 2" Playlist On Tidal

Jay Z Jay Z unleashes his second TIDAL-exclusive playlist, "Summer Sauce 2." Although Apple Music's new streaming service seems to be winning the competition, TIDAL hasn't given hope just yet. It's definitely hard to compete with Apple's Beats 1 radio show, especially when they have original radio programming hosted by Dr. Dre, Drake, Pharrell and others. Today TIDAL comes through with a new exclusive of their own, helmed by their own star power: Jay Z. Hov uploaded his own summer playlist, "Summer Sauce 2," which serves as the second Jay Z-curated playlist for TIDAL. Earlier in the summer he said his first playlist was causing "wars in the Carter house." The "Summer Sauce 2" playlist can be streamed exclusively on TIDAL here. It features the song that started it all, Meek Mill's "R.I.C.O." with Drake, "Stick Talk" from Future, 2 Chainz's "Watch Out," Rico Richie's "Poppin," A$AP Rocky's "Peso" and more. View a screenshot of the complete tracklist above. Are you feeling it?

A$ap Rocky is Being Sued By Fan Who Was Injured At A$ap Ferg Show

A$ap Rocky A fan is suing A$AP Rocky for the injuries caused by a different A$AP Mob member. Everybody's looking for a piece of the A$AP Mob wealth. A new lawsuit has surfaced against A$AP Rocky, it seems mainly because he's the richest member of the Mob. Krystina Clowes attended an A$AP Ferg show in 2013, where she was seriously injured by the mobbing crowd. She claims in her new lawsuit that A$AP Mob's Young Shabba crowd surfed that night, landing atop an unsuspecting fan (Clowes). She suffered a fractured vertebra, and says she's never fully recovered since. For her part, she says the reason she is suing Rocky out of the bunch is because the entire Mob has a history of crowd surfing, so they should all be held responsible. Clowes is seeking at minimum $75,000. [via]

The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" Hits #1 on the Hot 100

the weeknd "Can't Feel My Face" becomes The Weeknd's first number one hit. Just hours after I heard it blare from speakers behind the counter of a Subway on my lunch break, The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" has officially achieved the benchmark that we've all been expecting it to reach: the top spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. Billboard reports that the song just dethroned OMI's "Cheerleader," which spent four weeks at the top. "Can't Feel My Face" had already sat atop the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for four weeks, and it's not even Abel Tesfaye's only top ten song of the year. "Earned It" peaked at number three in May, and "The Hills" still sits at number eleven. With his sophomore album, Beauty Behind The Madness, dropping in just over two weeks, The Weeknd looks like he planned this whole thing out very well.

Migos Say They're Done With Their Next Album

migos Migos claim that their sophomore album is finished. When Migos released their debut album, Yung Rich Nation, a few weeks ago, they did so without Offset, who still remains behind bars after being arrested in April. Quavo and Takeoff said that he was present for 85% of the recording sessions, and listening to the album, it's clear that he's rarely absent from the tracks. What's shocking, though, is that Quavo is now claiming that the trio already have another album complete. In an interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Quavo and Takeoff claim that they have “another album that’s sitting back already. It’s all about timing.” They wouldn't share too many more details, but also discussed a track that they have with Lil Wayne in the vaults called "Fantastic," and said they'd love to collaborate with Nas.

Prince Inks Deal With Tidal, Announces Release Date For New Album "HITNRUN"

Prince Multi-platinum music icon Prince, and global music and entertainment platform TIDAL, today confirmed that the next release from the entertainer will be exclusively on TIDAL on September 7, 2015. The upcoming release, the experimental, HITNRUN, was first announced by his band, 3RDEYEGIRL, on BBC radio late last month, following the release of the critically praised first single, "HARDROCKLOVER". Minutes after the song was released on July 1st, critics raved with The Guardian saying, "Prince is back to his old sensual self 'ripping jeans' and 'making women scream' on this minimal slow jam." Billboard called the single "A dreamy rock song", and Rolling Stone described it as simply "Wild". "Super hardcore Prince fans that know every song he's ever recorded - we refer to them as 'The Purple Collective' or 'The Purple Army' - this album is absolutely for them, because it's super funky," reported 3RDEYEGIRL. "There are a lot of experimental sounds. It's just hit after hit and definitely caters to those fans who just love to hear what Prince has to say, rather than wanting to always hear that classic Purple Rain Prince sound." Prince worked with co-producer Joshua Welton on HITNRUN – Welton was also a co-producer on Prince's ARTOFFICIALAGE album, released late last year. The Prince/TIDAL partnership has been in the works for some months, but was quickly cemented out of mutual admiration and respect and a profound belief in artists' rights. The relationship began in May with TIDAL live streaming the first hour of Prince's RALLY 4 PEACE concert in Baltimore. TIDAL hosted live audio of the event and matched funds for donations made on TIDAL.com. The music icon stated, "After one meeting, it was obvious that Jay Z and the team he has assembled at TIDAL recognize and applaud the effort that real musicians put in2 their craft 2 achieve the very best they can at this pivotal time in the music industry. Secondly, TIDAL have honored Us with a non-restrictive arrangement that once again allows Us to continue making art in the fashion We've grown accustomed 2 and We're Extremely grateful 4 their generous support. And lastly, in the tech-savvy, real-time world We all live in 2day, everything is faster. From its conception and that one & only meeting, HITNRUN took about 90 days 2 prepare its release. If that's what freedom feels like, HITNRUN is what it sounds like." JAY Z added, "Prince has always been a visionary, a free-thinker. We're honored to offer his breadth of work, "1999," "Purple Rain," etc., music that has inspired so many, on TIDAL. We're also excited to be the home for his new upcoming album, HITNRUN. Both Prince and TIDAL share the belief that all creatives should have the opportunity to speak directly to those that love and support them. This partnership with Prince represents TIDAL's philosophy in its truest form, a 1 to 1 connection and direct delivery of artistry to the world." [Via Mi2n.com]

Drake Sends Subliminal Shots at Meek Mill During Festival Performance

Drake Drake says "I'm the Canadian guy making all the American guys mad" at his Squamish Festival performance. Until Drake drop his rumored "3 Peat" diss track, it looks like his beef with Meek Mill will be yielding increasingly unimportant runoff. This morning, a guy who wasn't dissed in the first place released a diss track in response to a diss track by another guy who wasn't directly dissed (confusing, we know), and now Drake's resorting to something a little less in-your-face than the meme warfare at OVO Fest at his shows. Performing at Squamish Festival over the weekend, Drizzy opted for a subliminal shot at Meek after a performance of "Back To Back," saying, "I'm the Canadian guy making all the American guys mad." This is a little more Drizzy's speed, in terms of his track record with beefs, but he may bare his teeth again if "3 Peat" ever drops.

Apparently Nicki Minaj Isn't Pregnant

Nicki Minaj Sources close to Nicki Minaj say she isn't pregnant with Meek Mill's child. On Saturday night, Nicki Minaj surprised the crowd attending her Pittsburgh "Pinkprint" tour stop by calling her tourmate (and boyfriend) Meek Mill her "baby father" onstage. She even quoted a tweet that contained footage of the exchange and didn't say whether or not she was messing with us. Today, "sources close to Nicki" have told TMZ that she is in fact not pregnant. The gossip site cites Nicki's habit of calling Lil Wayne her "baby daddy" in the past as reasoning for her use of the phrase, and then you have to consider that she also called Drake her "baby father" at Summer Jam last year.

Meek Mill Disses Drake in Charlotte NC

Meek mill Meek sent some more shots at Drizzy during tonight's "Pinkprint Tour" stop in Charlotte. It looks like the beef between Meek and Drake still continues. While in Charlotte, North Carolina Tuesday night for “The Pinkprint Tour,” Meek decided to take time out his “opening” set to spit a brand new verse directly aimed at Drizzy. Going acapella, Meek can be heard going at Drake’s past beef with YMCMB, spittin’ “Wayne don’t fuck with you, Stunna don’t fuck with you, Tyga don’t fuck with you.” He later went onto rap, “Everybody catching bullet holes, including Drake and the whole OVO,” which is presumably about last night’s shooting at the OVO after party. All this from Meek of course comes just 24 hours after Drake roasted him with internet memes all over his backdrop during last night’s OVO Fest. While we wait to see what happens, check out what fans have been posting on social media tonight in the meantime. What you think of it all? Should Meek fire back with a second diss record or take the "L"?
