Shaneil Muir Looks To Koffee As The Blueprint For Dancehall Success

Shaneil Muir is hungry for success, and she is looking to reggae music’s prize, Koffee, for inspiration.

The “Yamabella” singer made her appearance on TVJ’s ER with host, Anthony Miller where she answered questions about her position on her journey to success and where she desires to be. Shaneil Muir hails Koffee for her success at such a young age and see the young lyricist as the blueprint for success in dancehall in this era.

“Koffee has won a Grammy at a tender age. When I look at that and see how young she is and how talented she is to be in that position and to be rewarded for such hard work that she has done. I’m like I need to know what’s going on behind that business right there. What is it that can push me and help to grow myself, grow my craft.”

The 21-year-old Koffee, whose real name is Mikayla Simpson, won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 2019, making her the youngest person and only woman to be awarded in this category.

In 2016, Muir entered the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall talent show and was one of the finalists. Still, her recent fame/success is still new to her as she continues to climb the ranks in the dancehall space. During her interview with Miller, she expressed that she is careful not to spoil a good thing.

“Obviously this is a new environment for me. I’ve never been at this place. I’ve never been in this position,” she explained.

The “The Pain” singer revealed that she is looking forward to collaborating with many different talents and also releasing new singles for herself, and fans are excited to see what the artiste is coming with next.

Shaneil Muir was one of the breakout artists in 2020.

DJ Khaled Lives His Best Life In Jamaica But Some Locals Questioned Gov Curfew

DJ Khaled is living his best life in Jamaica while promoting the island to his global audience, but some locals are questioning government curfew orders.

International music producer DJ Khaled has always had a serious love affair with Jamaica. So much so that he vacations here on a regular basis and is even now currently on the island working on his latest album slated for release sometime soon. DJ Khaled has always been quite vocal about his love for the island, and once he hits the shores, his fans and followers can expect posts from him detailing his trip. He has certainly become an ‘ambassador” of sorts when it comes to promoting Jamaica.

This trip is no different, as he hangs out at the spot he refers to as “Holy Mountain.” Khaled has been busy posting shots of his time on the island, which many have suspected will be featured in projects for the upcoming album. He has also been meeting up with quite a lot of top Jamaican recording artists, including Buju Banton, Capleton, Barrington Levy, and Bounty Killer. It’s safe to say his new album will definitely have a Jamaican flair to it.

Along with sharing photos of himself and the aforementioned artists, he has also been sharing videos and photos of himself. These have, of course, drawn the attention of the Jamaican populace. Many have praised him for always showing Jamaica in a positive light. Others have pointed out that Khaled seems to have been afforded the privilege of moving freely irrespective of the current curfew measures in place across the island.

He has been spotted with his team taking photos and videos on the beach and other popular areas, including rivers and waterfalls. One user noted: “So police run me a me yard cause me deh river buy nah run….u know what man nvm.”

The “We The Best” mogul also took some time to plug Jamaica soft drink brand Ting.

He is seen hanging out with what looks like lifeguards with a bottle of Ting in hand. In a very Jamaican-sounding voice, he says, “Some man a drink soda man like mi a drink Ting.”

Khaled’s next album will be his 12th studio album and will be titled “Khaled Khaled.” He has already gotten some big names from hip hop on the album, including Post Malone, H.E.R, and Migos. This trip to Jamaica seems to be a further addition to what is expected to be another hit album for him. What are your thoughts on Khaled being given “leeway” to hang out at the beaches and rivers during the all-island curfew?

Saweetie Reacts To Quavo Saying He Repo’d Her Bentley

Saweetie has responded to Qauvo’s claim that he had repossessed the Bentley he gifted her last Christmas in the most creative of ways.

In a recently posted TikTok video, Saweetie is seemingly telling the public that she still holds the keys to the car. The video, labeled “FRENEMIES PT. 1,” shows Saweetie searching for her keys and insinuates that her best friend, who she also plays, has stolen them. After the best friend denies taking them, the two embrace each other while Saweetie’s recent song featuring Doja Cat titled “Best Friend” plays in the background. The camera zooms in on the best friend holding the keys to the Bentley with a sly smile on her face.

The video captioned: “I know das wrong! Besties or Frenemies?” Quavo claimed he had took back the Bentley in a snippet of a track that was shared a few days ago. “Lil’ bitty b*tch, She slimy and she sneaky, taking back that Bentley.”

@officialsaweetie

I know das wrong! Besties or Frenemies ? ? #bestfriend #bestfriendchallenge

? Best Friend (feat. Doja Cat) – Saweetie

The snippet came after a rough breakup between the two rappers last month. The “Tap In” rapper announced she was single, following speculation from fans that the two had unfollowed each other on Instagram. Quavo responded in a tweet, saying, “I had love for you and disappointed you did all that. You are not the woman I thought you were. I wish you nothing but the best.” To which Saweetie responded with a simple: “Take care.”

The two did not reveal a specific reason for their sour break up, but when surveillance footage of the two rappers fighting in an elevator surfaced, Saweetie told the media, “This unfortunate incident happened a year ago, while we have reconciled since then and moved past this particular disagreement, there were simply too many other hurdles to overcome in our relationship and we have both since moved on.”

Master P Says Hip Hop Need A Union Amid Death Of DMX

Master P is calling on rappers to get together to prevent further cases similar to DMX’s case. He has suggested the creation of a hip-hop union.

While he said that he is also praying for the rapper, he told a TMZ cameraman that a proper hip-hop union could help a lot of at-risk rappers who need support from their own community. Master P also suggested that DMX’s, real name Earl Simmons, an overdose could have been prevented. He explained his vision was similar to retired basketball players who often become analysts or coaches.

“DMX is an icon. I just hate that we have to wait for something to happen to one of us before everybody really starts saying how much they care and love you. We got to figure out how to prevent that,” Master P said.

He added that it was time to have a frank conversation about the way forward for Hip-Hop artists who may be suffering. “The truth hurts– drugs done killed a lot of our great ones. It’s sent a lot of them to prison. I’m praying for DMX and his family. I hope that people start celebrating these icons while they’re alive. Imagine all the stuff that we could have prevented for DMX to help him. I feel like hip-hop needs some type of union. The NBA has it. What happens when a guy falls off after he done sold millions and millions of records? We need that,” he continued.

To get such a union going, it would take a new education drive on issues such as financing.

“I think it starts with education. I want to really start educating our people and letting them see that– even LeBron and KD, Kyrie Irving, everybody that represents Black Lives Matter, when the NBA talks about they’re putting money back into HBCUs, I want to see where that money go at,” he added.

He continued: “The education that we can invest in the next generation, we can prevent this. If you look at all the heroes and stars that we lost.”

DMX died on Friday, April 9, 2021, after spending a week in the hospital on life support. The entire hip hop community has been reacting to his untimely death with tributes from all over the world pouring in.

Kodak Black Shares He Misses NBA YoungBoy & Wants Them To Do A Collab

Despite having once been close friends, Kodak Black and NBA Youngboy have been steadily dissing each other online since 2020. It’s not clear what caused their bond to fall apart, but Kodak seems to be taking the high road in multiple instances lately, including when it comes to his beef with NBA.

Kodak Black was released from prison earlier this year following a pardon from former President Trump, and it appears that his experience with incarceration helped him to see some situations in a new light. Following Youngboy Never Broke Again’s arrest last month, Black responded to followers online asking if he was happy to hear the news.

“Nah, I ain’t happy YB went to jail,” he replied during an Instagram Live session. “F*ck I’m happy he went to jail for? That was my lil bruh at one point. The f*ck I’m happy for? We street n***as, that could be anybody.”

Not only does Kodak clearly not wish jail on anybody following his own time spent behind bars, but he also seems ready to consider NBA a friend again. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, Kodak took his sentiments a step further in a more recent IG Live video during which he admits that he misses his old friend.

“Free that boy!” Kodak says while cozily wrapped up in a blanket. “I miss that boy, I can’t even lie about that one. I can’t even lie about that one, ya heard?”

Many fans hope that this change of heart means a collaboration between the two rappers might be in the cards in the near future, but for now, NBA remains in jail. He was arrested by federal authorities in Los Angeles due to an outstanding warrant and may have increased his sentence by feeling from officers when they attempted to pull him over. Only time will tell when these two friends can be reunited to finally reconcile their beef in person.

Ashanti Iced Flo Rida Dating Rumors After Spotted On Yacht Together

Ashanti says Flo Rida is her brother amid fresh dating rumors after he shared pics of them on a yacht.

For years the rumor mill has consistently tried to put Flo Rida and Ashanti together as a couple. That’s mainly because the two have shared such a long and enduring friendship. The rumors died down for a while but were freshly stoked up once again after the rapper recently posted pictures of himself with Ashanti sharing a vacation together at the Garza Blanca Resort & Spa in Cancun, Mexico.

Fans immediately started to excitedly ponder if the two were, in fact, together. It didn’t help that Ashanti was showing off her body in the pics. TheShaderoom caught wind of the pics and started to infer that maybe the two were really romantically involved. That was almost immediately shut down by Ashanti herself, who once again let fans know that they are just friends and that she considers the “My House” singer to be family.

The “Foolish” singer commented: “Aht aht Flo is my brother. We’re family! Celebrating my sis @liltuneshi bday!!! Happy Birthday Bink!” With those words, she effectively shut down any gossip that the two could be dating, much to the disappointment of some fans who feel that they would make an awesome power couple.

The rapper posted a series of photos of himself enjoying the sun beachside with Ashanti in the background. In one of the pictures, Ashanti could be seen lounging in a Dior bikini on a yacht right next to Flo Rida, who was also wearing a Dior tank top. He captioned that post: “If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint, I will change my expression, and smile.’”

Ashanti also showed off her body in a printed bikini while taking in the tropical views poolside. Fans thought for sure it was a romantic partnership when Flo Rida responded to her pictures with flame emojis in the comments. Other reports indicated that it was Ashanti’s sister Shia’s birthday, and she joined them on the mini-vacay.

50 Cent Avoids Fight With Diddy For Dating His Baby Mama Daphne Joy

50 Cent says he’s not about to get into a fight with Diddy for dating his baby mama, Daphne Joy.

For years there have been rumors of a possible rift between two of hip hop’s biggest megastars, 50 Cent and Sean “Diddy” Combs. The rumors may have started circulating over allegations that Diddy owed the Black Mafia Family for some of his success. There have also been talks of a possible rift over Vodka brands. Whatever the case may be, both have stated they have no issues despite the rumors circulating in the media.

It seems a new topic has emerged to throw gossip-mongers into another tizzy about Fifty and Diddy’s relationship. This time the subject is none other than one of Fifty’s former flames Daphne Joy, who also happen to share a son with Fifty. Earlier this week, paparazzi shots surfaced online of Daphne and Diddy cozying up together.

This, of course, sparked rumors of another possible cause for an alleged rift between both rappers. However, the G-Unit rapper took to social media to “clear the air.” He posted one of the photos with Diddy and Daphne with the caption: “Nah me and puff fight over business sh*t, If he like the girl he like the girl ? I don’t give a f***. #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.”

Fans and followers also threw in their bit, letting their opinions known on the comments he made. Some praised him for his stance, while others poked fun about the entire situation.

Fifty and Daphne seem to have a good relationship and even recently spent the holiday with her and their son.

DMX Complete An Entire Album Of Work Before Death

DMX recorded an entire album of new music before his death.

The hip hop world is still in shock after the sudden loss of DMX, a legend in the rap game and arguably one of the best to ever grab the mic. Although DMX’s death will be felt among fans and music industry friends for many years to come, a forthcoming project by the Ruff Ryders alum has been confirmed by his friend and collaborator, Darrin “Dee” Dean.

During an interview with Fox 5 New York, Dean revealed that he and X spent the early part of 2020 working on a new album in Nashville following a road trip in an RV. Dee was not afraid to set expectations high for the project, saying, “It’s sad that he’s not gonna be here, but the music…This album right here is special. Like you probably never heard no music like you heard on this one that we did right now.”

From a public perspective, DMX seemed to be doing well in recent months. His manager, Craig Brodhead, and producer Swizz Beatz had both gone on record to report that DMX was healthy, motivated, and looking forward to the next chapter of his career. Speaking on the unreleased project, Brodhead said, “He was excited about it. He couldn’t wait to promote it and get out there with the music.”

The project was to be DMX’s first release following a new deal with Def Jam signed in 2019. The excitement surrounding the album was already heightened when X namedropped several of his recent collaborators during one of his final interviews, including Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, Usher, and the late Pop Smoke.

DMX reminded the world what he was made of in July of last year when he went head-to-head and hit for hit with fellow rap icon Snoop Dogg on Verzuz, the incredibly popular music platform that stirred up nostalgia in millions of hip hop and R&B fans throughout the pandemic. Hearing X’s extensive catalog of hits hyped-up fans in anticipation of new music, and although DMX has tragically joined the ranks of talented rappers taken far too soon, he left us with the gift of a final album.

Additionally, X was reportedly working on a show about fatherhood in which he planned to introduce his kids to each other for the first time, and an HBO documentary featuring the rapper is said to have finished filming before his death. DMX passed away on Friday at the age of 50 after suffering a heart attack.

As customary these days, almost every overseas artists touching down in Jamaica checks in with the Unruly Boss. A video posted by Quavo showed the two artists hanging out. The Migos rapper is seen shirtless and wearing some three-quarter pants, while Popcaan is stylish with an orange graphic t-shirt and chambray button-down shirt with his jewelry. Offset and Takeoff were not in the clip but were probably somewhere close hanging out.

“What we doing?” Quavo asks in the video, to which Popcaan responds, “Vroom, Outside.”

This might be a good move for the Atlanta rapper to escape some bad press recently regarding his ex-girlfriend Saweetie happening Stateside. Urban Islandz reported on a leaked song snippet of Quavo rapping about taking back the Bentley he gifted Saweetie in December as a Christmas present. The ex-couple was also forced to issue statements addressing a leaked video of an altercation between them from last year in Los Angeles. Despite it triggering a police investigation, both said the incident was unfortunate, and they’ve already moved past it.

Master P Almost Fight Kobe Bryant Forcing Lamar Odom To Step In

Master P almost had a brawl with Kobe Bryant, according to a tale from Lamar Odom.

Kobe Bryant is still being remembered a year after his death. The self-proclaimed Mamba player is known for his drive and competitive spirit and will go down in history as one of basketball’s greatest. He was also competitive and demanded respect on his own turf, especially from those who stepped foot on his training grounds.

One of those moments was recalled by Laker player Lamar Odom who says that Master P once showed up at a Laker’s practice session, and immediately, he and Bryant clashed- almost coming to blows with Master P.

In an interview with Vlad TV, Odom said the men’s headstrong personalities clashed immediately. “The aura, the energy or the timing of it, [Kobe] wasn’t really kinda feeling it,” he began. “You gotta understand, these are two alpha males and their own, in what they do. [it was] Awkward. You feel me? So I’m from the street so I can peep it.”

Odom said he stepped between both men to quell a possible physical altercation. “So, I’m tryin’ to just dead it, but it was awkward. It wasn’t like, getting in the middle, but I’m just gonna check both of they temperatures and make sure they cool. I’m gonna use my Jamaica, Queens instinct. The energy was just off between them.”

While Odom couldn’t recall the exact dates, it was around the 2004-2005 season in which the Lakers disappointingly missed the playoffs. Odom and Bryant were teammates from 2004-2011.

Kobe Bryant a Phony

It seems that Master P wasn’t fond of Kobe, having himself had a pair of training camp stints in the 1990s, and he’s been very critical of Kobe even after that incident.

In 2015, he called out Kobe for being “phony” when he reached out after Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel.

“I’m talking about Kobe,” he said. “All this man wanted to do was play basketball. Kobe was his friend and he like owned the team. He could’ve got [Lamar] back on the team. Even in that situation, I think [Lamar] was just searching for love. His biggest problem was where the people were at that he showed love to. It’s phony,” Master P had then said.

NBA YoungBoy Looks Happy In Jail As He Smiled For A Photo With Inmates

NBA YoungBoy looks happy in jail in a leaked photo.

YoungBoy Never Broke Again has had his fair share of run-ins with the law and jail stints. The rapper was only relieved of probation just over a year ago, and while he has made an attempt to stay on the right side of the law since he hasn’t managed the feat for long. His most recent arrest followed his attempt to flee the police when they tried to detain him, which certainly will not look good in court. The rapper is reportedly facing up to ten years on federal charges.

In spite of his legal woes and detention, NBA YoungBoy appears to be in good spirits behind bars. The Top rapper is seen in a newly surfaced photo showing off an unusually bright smile in the company of four other jailbirds. Clad in his orange jumpsuit with his hair braided, YoungBoy is cheering out rather hard as he poses in the center of the photo. While some fans are relieved to see the rapper seemingly doing well, others are questioning his apparent contentment.

DJ Akademiks shared the photo on Instagram on Wednesday (April 7), and it invited thousands of comments from fans and critics alike. “He looks like he having a little too much fun,” one fan wrote. Others chimed in with, “Nah no one can like jail that much” and “He look happier than he do when he free.” Perhaps jail is something you can get used to after enough visits. One commenter claimed that the rapper’s jail mates were fans and that he is “chilling” on the inside.

What seems to be a common opinion is that NBA YoungBoy was never seen smiling like this when he was out in civilization. The Kanye West effect seems to be activated by a lockup. While he is expected to do some real jail time this time around, some fans still have faith that his legal team will pull through. “Ima be real, ik he might be facing some years or that’s what people say. But sum telling me he ain’t gone be in there for long,” one supporter said. “He looks
like he bouta snitch,” another jested.

NBA YoungBoy is currently facing federal possession charges stemming from his arrest in September. His lawyer maintains that he was not in possession of any firearms. The rapper was denied bond for failing to do a court-ordered drug test per his previous bond conditions.

Cardi B Puts Offset On Alert Says This Year It’s All About Getting Her Worth

Cardi B is making sure the public aware that she knows her worth and some fans are pointing to Offset.

The “Up” rapper admitted that she has settled for less in the past, but NO MORE. Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, has signed numerous deals with big brands, including Uber and Facebook. However, in an interview for the cover of XXL, the rapper informed readers that she plans to get even richer, as she deserves all this and more.

“I feel like I’ve been on deals before that like, yeah, I got paid, but I feel like I deserved more. And I made sure this year that I get everything I deserve. Not just on music deals but on everything,” The 28-year-old said.

Cardi B, who is born of a Dominican father and a Trinidadian mother, also spoke about race and gender and the role it plays when assessing her value in the entertainment industry.

“For example, sometimes I feel like a company might see, you know, a girl like me, a colored girl like me. I’m a colored girl and I’m from the ‘hood and sh*t. And they might be like, ‘Oh, we could offer her a $2 million advance.’ And the company is gonna make out of you, probably fu**ing $50 million, $100 million. And you settle for $2 million because they think that you’re so thirsty for that money that they just gonna give you the $2 million,” she said.

The Grammy award-winning rapper assessed the realities of being a black woman in the entertainment industry, as much as she does not like to blame racial issues in America.

“It’s just like, sometimes you do see that race really matters and sh*t because I’ve been seeing some influencers, that are not, you know, like me. Caucasian influencers. And they’re getting paid big money. I’m a whole artist. And there is other artists that I know how much they’re getting paid,” She explained.

She added that she has been doing her research and has realized that she was “ripped the f**k off” but has made up her mind that she will no longer be accepting mediocrity but will, in fact, be going for what she deserves.

By doing this, the rapper said she had surrounded herself with good people and credited her husband, rapper Offset, for his financial advice. Still, some fans thinks she should also asked for what she deserves from Offset as they point out to his past infidelity.

Cardi B Shares Steamy Studio Session With Offset While Recording “Um Yea”

Ever wonder what it’s like when Cardi B and Offset record music in the studio?

Cardi B is super into her husband, Offset, and she has not shied away from sharing the gory details of their romantic relationship as unsolicited as the details might be. According to Cardi, she doesn’t want to give fans any fake awkward romance stories as she proceeds to disclose one very detailed encounter when she and her husband first started dating.

The “Up” rapper shocked fans when she reminisced on a song the two collaborated on – “Um Yea,” as she shared a short clip on Twitter of an encounter the two had when the song was recorded in 2017.

According to Cardi B, it was the first time she and Offset, who is now her husband, got into the studio together. The recording of the song, however, caused things to get steamy between the two.

“I don’t want to give you this weird, fake a– romantic, awkward story, but, um, I remember this one time when I was in the studio with Offset and he was doing ‘Um Yea,’ the song that me and him have together,” she began.

The 57 seconds drama continued as Cardi described watching Offset, who was also looking at her. “He was spitting it out of nowhere and while he was doing the song and everything he kept looking at me and grinding and smiling and s–t while he was making the song and then I told him I want to get on the song,” she explained. “So I just started writing my verse and everything and he was looking at me like, ‘awww s–t girl!”

Cardi B is not known for subtlety, but the voice note ended with her saying, “we f**ked. Right after, so, Um Yea.” Of course, her fans found her ability to tell a story hilarious, while others criticized her for sharing the grimy details which her daughter, Kulture, might one day come across on the internet.

Sean Paul Praised Masicka For His Versatility To Deejay On Trap Or Dancehall Beats

Sean Paul will only give Masicka a pass for using trap beats in dancehall.

The dancehall icon has never been one to shy away from giving his opinion when it comes to Jamaica’s music, and this time around, he is sharing his thoughts on some of the genre’s newcomers. During an interview with Anthony Miller, Sean Paul spoke about some acts that have been dabbling in the new Trap sounds which have emerged from the island in recent years.

The dancehall legend named Masicka as the artiste that he thinks is the most “versatile” of these new entertainers while suggesting that some are better suited and equipped to compose songs within the realm of trap-dancehall versus the old school dancehall beats.

Sean Paul says that a lot of the younger dancehall artists are sounding way better on trap beats than traditional dancehall riddims.

When Miller asked him for examples of names who he considered fit this pattern, he reluctantly named Gage and Skillibeng as two such acts.

Masicka has a rare talent in dancehall

On the contrary, Sean Paul says Masicka “does it “effortlessly” and as a result, he respects him for it. He went on to add, “I have seen him go on a Trap-Dancehall type a track, an I seen him go on a dancehall track an him sound dope on di both a dem.”

SP is not the first major act to point this out as back in 2019, Bounty Killer and Mr. Vegas had alluded to something of a similar nature in reference to dancehall artists and reggae beats.

Bounty Killer had come out placing blame at the feet of the producers for “watering down” the music. He proposed for producers to stick to the more authentic sounds as introducing Trap and Island Pop somehow seem to cripple some artiste ability to be able to deejay the regular way on a dancehall track.

Mr. Vegas also echoed similar sentiments after Bounty made his statement and blamed it on the young producers who he classified as “stifling the artiste.” He pointed out that most of the newer producers did not even know how to play an instrument and, as such, could not differentiate if they were even off-key. He stated they were more heavily reliant on computer software programs to create their sounds.

YG Uploaded Censored Version Of “Meet The Flockers” After YouTube Yanked It

YG released censored version of “Meet The Flockers” after YouTube yanked the original.

As the disturbing and ugly trend of hurting Asian people continues in the US, some social media companies have been trying to be proactive in removing any anti-Asian hate speech from their platforms. YouTube was one of the first to announce stricter measures aimed at weeding out any vitriol that appeared on its platform that might be perceived as hatred towards Asian people.

They stayed true to their word and have already begun to remove a lot of videos. The first sign that some rappers will be affected by their decisions is the removal of YG‘s song “Meet The Flockers,” which has been removed from the platform. The song tells a story of committing a robbery in an Asian neighborhood.

At first, YouTube didn’t look like they would be targeting music videos, but it seems after several calls from critics and mounting pressure, they decided to take the song off the site. Both the track and the video have vanished. What’s interesting is that if you search for YG’s “Meet The Flockers” on YouTube, you’ll be directed to a video that has news coverage about a robbery that was allegedly inspired by the song.

Some fans have tried to re-upload the song, which resulted in a number of low-quality audio that youTube will more than likely delete soon. Some live performances of the song remain for viewing.

Over the last two weeks, there has been a significant upsurge in violence towards Asian people, with the trend gaining momentum. In one of the latest attacks, which seems to mostly target elderly Asians, a woman was sadly stabbed to death in California while walking her dogs. Authorities believe that the attacks are motivated by the perception that all Asians somehow caused the Coronavirus pandemic. So far, authorities have labeled most of these acts as hate crimes.

Inside Lil Wayne’s New $15 Million Mansion In Hidden Hills Next To Kylie Jenner

Lil Wayne splurged over $15 million on a new manson on the West Coast.

Weezy is now the talk of the town as he joins celebrities like Kylie Jenner in Hidden Hills. The “Lollipop” rapper has recently unveiled his sweet, new mansion in the high-profile gated community. The new piece of real estate has reportedly cost him 15.4 million dollars!

The five-time Grammy-winning artiste is now the neighbor of American model and businesswoman Kylie Jenner. The palace, as it is dubbed by the public, is roughly a 12,135 sq. ft. custom estate with 7.5 baths, 7 beds, and an open floor plan with panoramic views.

The other luxurious sections inside the mansion include the wine display, entertainer’s lounge, chef’s kitchen, home theater, and breakfast room. We must not fail to mention the exterior sections, which include the pool, multiple patios, a basketball court, and a guest house.

Lil Wayne’s luck seemed to have made a turn since he was granted clemency by former President of the United States, Donald Trump, in January this year. The rap star was among a list of 140 people who had their sentences commuted or were pardoned by the former President on his last day in office.

Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to the charge of possession of firearm by a convicted felon in relation to a December 2019 incident. It is reported that when police searched his private jet in Miami, the rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Micheal Carter Jr., was found carrying a gun and bullets. He was facing up to 10 years in prison but, after meeting and endorsing Trump during the campaign for elections last year, he was pardoned in January.

The “How to Love” rapper is known as one of the biggest and most influential artists of his generation and is a multiplatinum-selling artist.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Gets Fan Love In Dominican Republic From Screaming Kids

Seems Tekashi 6ix9ine has officially taken a break from music again and is spending some time in the Dominican Republic.

The “FEFE” rapper shared a video to his Instagram account in which he was seen greeting a few natives, who all seemed befuddled by his appearance. Tekashi 6ix9ine didn’t journey to the region empty-handed, as he provided money to the crowd that gathered to greet him.

69 captions his post: “To all my fans I love you.. I’m sorry I been away from music. In all reality, I’m not happy. The fame and the money doesn’t mean anything to me because it doesn’t bring me joy. I say all this because when your chasing your dreams in life remember God comes first. Never lose sight of that. He blesses you in life because he sees the good in your heart and with that blessing you learn to bless others. I will continue my journey to find happiness within myself and find the joy I once had.”

The post has seemingly shown a different side of 6ix9ine from what fans are accustomed to. This is also the first Instagram post in nearly three weeks from the notorious troll.

The source of 6ix9ine’s unhappiness may have also come from his relationship issues, upon Jade’s confirmation that the two have broken up and even revealing she covered up his tattoo. The two have been together since 2018 during, as 6ix9ine took on the legal issues stacked against him and the high-profile trial.

The breakup came as a shock to many, as 6ix9ine had just made headlines days earlier for gifting her with Channel handbags costing $50,000.

Others have also speculated that the source of his unhappiness is stemming from the hatred he has received following his decision to provide information against his fellow gang members.

G Herbo Granted Permission To Communicate With Brother & Team

G Herbo was successful in having a judge vary the conditions of his release so that he is able to communicate with members of his team and his brother, even as the fraud trial gets underway within a month.

The rapper is facing federal charges laid last December in which he and his fellow associates were accused of stealing identifications and money valuing more than $1 million in luxury purchases that also included a vacation to Jamaica.

G Herbo, who is expecting a baby with his girlfriend Taina, has denied any criminal involvement in the charges. The indictment also shows that some facts appear to say that G Herbo was aware of a named suspect involved in fraud but there is no direct link to him. He has since been released on several conditions of bail which included prohibitions on contact for particular persons. One of those people includes his ex-girlfriend Ari Fletcher who is testifying for the prosecution, as well as some of the members of his team and his half- brother.

However, his legal team filed documents this week for a review of the conditions by the court and was successful in getting six people removed from the list which includes his manager, business partner, tour manager and his half- brother.

According to the documents, part of the conditions of his release requires that he is to maintain employment which is affected his ability to not be in contact with his team, which if he is to continue making music and touring, would need him to be able to speak to his team unhindered.

Migos’ Takeoff Escape Charges In Sexual Assault Case

Takeoff escape charges in his 2020 sexual assault case.

Migos have been in the news for pretty contentious reasons over the last few days. They can record at least one win after Takeoff‘s pending sexual assault case has been dropped because of a lack of evidence. Just last week, the rappers were being described as toxic following the now infamous Quavo and Saweetie elevator video, which surfaced on social media.

The former couple cleared that incident up quickly when they said that it was simply an “unfortunate incident.” The news that charges have been dropped against Takeoff came from TMZ.

They stated that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office decided not to move forward with prosecuting Takeoff for the sexual assault charges brought against him because of “insufficient evidence.”

The 26-year-old Migos rapper faced the charges last year in August when he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a party in August 2020. According to TMZ, the decision came after “countless hours” of investigating on the part of the musician’s attorney Drew Findling. He said, “The allegations were patently and provably false.”

In the original lawsuit, the woman who was not identified accused the Georgia-born recording artist of sexual assault and battery. She also said that Takeoff made her “extremely uncomfortable” at a party in Los Angeles. She further alleged that he took advantage of her in a bedroom. Even though no criminal charges will be filed, he could still face a civil lawsuit from the alleged victim.

Since the new first broke, Takeoff always maintained his innocence and vehemently denied the accusations. Now that things seemed to have settled down for the trio, fans are hoping they head back to the studio to produce their highly anticipated album Culture III.

Nicki Minaj First Solo Female Rapper To Get 1 Billion Views On YouTube With ‘Anaconda’

Nicki Minaj now the first female rapper to reach 1 billion streams on YouTube for a solo song.

Nicki Minaj has reached another milestone in her very illustrious career after her hit track “Anaconda” hit the one billion view mark on YouTube. Over the years, Minaj has been considered one of, if not the most celebrated female rap artists in the game. However, there are still others who feel that she is often not given the accolades she deserves.

Although she has managed to achieve so much over the years and has had numerous chart-topping songs and albums, it seems she has never been officially recognized by major industry players like the Recording Academy. She has been snubbed on numerous occasions by the Grammy team, yet, this has never deterred her ability to continue churning out quality music.

“Anaconda” was released in 2014 off Nicki Minaj’s third studio album, “The Pinkprint.” Interestingly, this is Minaj’s sixth video to surpass the 1 billion view mark on YouTube. It has also become the first video by a female solo rapper to achieve this feat.

It seems “Anaconda” had been destined for greatness from the get-go, with over 19 million views on Youtube on the first day of its release. Minaj received tremendous backlash for the visuals and was deemed “desperate” to get her records sold. The video was later ranked the 13th greatest video of the decade courtesy of Billboard.

Although Nicki Minaj has only done four studio albums, those albums along wither mixtapes and singles have managed to push her to the pinnacle of the rap market. She has managed to break and set numerous records including, the first woman to have 100 tracks on the Billboard Hot 100. With 18 top ten hits, she has without a doubt set the benchmark for female rappers.

From her very first album, “Pink Friday” to “Queen,” Minaj has managed to carve out her own space and has remained consistent in doing so. What are your thoughts on her latest achievement?

NBA YoungBoy Dodges RICO Charge, Still Faces Up To 10 Years, Lawyer Explains

YoungBoy Never broke again is reportedly facing a federal gun charge and is likely to do time.

An attorney who uncovered inside information revealed on social media that NBA YoungBoy’s recent arrest might result in jail time. The rapper is facing a federal charge for possession of a firearm by a felon. The arrest warrant that was issued reportedly stemmed from his September detainment when he was arrested for possession of drugs and a stolen firearm. According to reports NBA YoungBoy has been charged with one count of illegal possession of firearms by a felon, and possession of an unregistered weapon.

In the video shared by the lawyer, he explained, “Got the update on YoungBoy. He’s facing a federal charge for felon possession of a firearm. Carries with it a sentence of between five and ten years,” said the lawyer. “He didn’t get hit with the RICO charge. This, however, is a very serious charge. He has priors, also, when they tried to arrest him he ran and they found a gun in the car he ran from.”

The lawyer further explained in his lengthy caption that the rapper would most likely have to serve a sentence considering his previous legal woes and the fact that he not only ran from police when they tried to make the arrest but also that a firearm was recovered from the vehicle. “No Rico. Felon in possession of a firearm. When feds charge that they are going to have strong evidence like DNA or fingerprints or something else tying you to the firearm,” the lawyer explained.

“While typically this isn’t the most serious charge, when you have a guy with priors involving guns, and the guy who ran from Cops when they try to arrest him and then the cops found a gun in the car he ran from, that is all going to be a very big problem. Bail will be tough. And it’s going to be very hard to avoid jail time.”

NBA YoungBoy, who is a father of 7, has had a troubled road replete with legal woes. The 21-year-old was aiming to turn things around after he finally got off of house arrest and probation near the end of 2019. Check back with Urban Islandz for more on this developing story.

With a catchy and fast-paced beat, the lyrics are well-matched to the rhythm. Vybz Kartel dials down on the usual punch and keen wordplay that the “Fever” singer is known for.

The opening lines of the song leave little to the imagination. In the intro, Vybz Kartel sings, “Tight yuh tight me gyal… Pat yuh good hole… Underneath yuh nah freeze, a nuh snow.” The remaining lyrics are just as sexual, with various descriptions of his bedroom shenanigans.

The video is the perfect complement to the words he delivers. It features several scenes of scantily clad females who make it their duty to shake what their mama provided. In one of the opening scenes, the dancer is captured in a one piece bikini gyrating on a bed while performing numerous acrobatic moves. Vybz Kartel remains incarcerated for murder, and as such, he does not appear in his music videos. However, that has not stopped him from giving his fans a show.

The video and song is a hit with fans, one of whom commented on YouTube that, “Vybz Kartel knows how to make women feel special.. No other artiste does that.” Another fan commented, “A weh u find da thickazz ya me g? No regret watching this video at all.”

Judging from the responses, “Stress Out, Stress Out” is already on its way to becoming a favorite for the Gaza Boss’ fans.

Mavado Tributes Late Mother In New Song “Never Give Up”

Mavado tributes his late mother in his new song, “Never Give Up.”

Amidst what is no doubt one of the rockiest moments in his life, Mavado has given us a new anthem in his latest release, “Never Give Up.” The single, which was released today (March 26) by Good Good Productions, has already made its way to YouTube’s trending list. The Zum-produced track seems to be a sort of social commentary on the latest happenings in the Dancehall artiste’s life.

Mavado, unfortunately, lost his mother two weeks ago and has been in mourning since. The singjay has posted several tributes to her on his Instagram page, including a video memory collage that features clips from birthday celebrations and interactions with her grandchildren. In one of his latest tributes, alongside a picture of his mother, Mavado wrote, “I can just imagine you in heaven with this beautiful smile Mama, I still can’t believe you not here anymore.”

Mavado reflect on mom’s death and son imprisoned in new music

As the artiste struggled to come to terms with his mother’s death, he was hit by another blow. His eighteen-year-old son Dante Brooks was sentenced to life in prison for murder a week ago. He is to serve at least 22 years in prison before the possibility of parole. While the father has not directly commented on his son’s conviction, it’s safe to say that he is heartbroken. In an Instagram post earlier this year, Mavado accused the court system of being unfair while vowing to fight for his son and co-accused Andre Hinds. The Gully Gad said, “It’s like my son was found guilty before trial, but I’m going to point out everything and the injustice one day at a time.”

Fast forward to today’s release, in which Mavado sings of his impending comeback. Lines from the song reference his late mother’s prayers and enemies setting traps for him and his son.

In commenting on his son’s dilemma, Mavado sings, “Mi affi mek it through the storm nuh matter what a gwaan… How much real youths weh gone, mi son a run remand.”

Other featured lines include, “Wah me do, bounce back pon dem like abracadabra… Waan get mi down but mi up like viagra.” “Fi stop mi them coulda neva… People die but Legends live forever.”

The song is ultimately extremely relatable with a catchy hook that will have fans singing it over and over again. While it is no doubt based on the circumstances Mavado is facing right now, it is also relatable for anyone who is facing struggles, and this will make it popular among fans.

Comments on the single have largely been filled with love and support for the singer.

One fan said, “Swear this man never disappoint me yet always could relate to all his song mavado fans will never give up on u or in our life.”

Another commented, “Nuff thing vado guh through this year who knows, knows…rate how him take the negative events inna him life and turn it into motivation for the fans dem. #NeverGiveUp.”

Mavado “We Nah Listen”

Mavado also dropped a second single titled “We Nah Listen” featured on the Big Time Riddim, produced by One Time Music.

Raz-B’s Ex-Girlfriend Says He Sexual Assaulted Her Leaving He Hospitalized

Kallee Brooks is exposing Raz-B for allegedly physically and sexually assaulting her while they were together.

Raz-B has been accused of abusing his former girlfriend Kallee Brookes in the past, but even after photos of her injuries surfaced following his 2019 arrest for reportedly strangling her in a parking lot, he was let off due to a “lack of evidence.” Now Brookes has taken to TikTok to give a rundown of what she endured during the relationship with the B2K singer. She admitted that she protected him several times out of fear until it got to a point where he allegedly raped her.

“First he gave me a black eye and I told everyone I did it to protect him,” the actress-singer said. “Then he strangled me in a parking lot where he said he was going to kill me. I didn’t press charges because I thought it was all my fault.” As previously mentioned, Raz-B was arrested following that incident. However, he was later released. Brookes shared photos of her black eye as well as the audio of the 911 call from the 2019 incident in the TikTok video.

She went on to share how Raz-B would then try to overcompensate and apologize. She recalled that he had put a “large down payment” on a vehicle for her and said he wouldn’t hurt her again. After his apology, he unsurprisingly went back on his word, and Kallee alleges that he even had nonconsensual sex with her and got her pregnant. “I was afraid of him and didn’t know how to get away until finally, he held me down, had sex with me against my will, impregnated me, put me in the hospital,” she explained with a photo of her curled up in a hospital bed in the background. It was at this point that Brookes says she “finally had the courage to get away from him.”

The video has gone viral on TikTok, and fans are weighing in on the heart-wrenching tales across social media networks. Brookes captioned the video “This is why I have trust issues” with a straight face emoji, and it begins with the question, “What’s a f***ked up thing that your ex did to you?” Check out the TikTok below.

DaniLeigh Worries Fans With Latest Post After Bout With “Snowfall” Actor Amin Joseph

DaniLeigh has once again found herself at the center of controversy. DaniLeigh came under heavy criticism this morning when she tried to shade a much-loved television series highly regarded by the black community.

It all started when the singer tweeted, “Am I the only one that can’t get into snowfall,” referencing the FX crime series, which has just been renewed for a fifth season. Fans of the show have been hype over the renewal, sharing their excitement on various social media channels. Despite this, it seems DaniLeigh just wasn’t here for it, expressing her disdain for the show in the now-deleted tweet.

Needless to say, fans of the show weren’t having it. One upset Twitter user said, “I knew i didn’t like DaniLeigh, now sis reaching trying to get people to not like Snowfall with her.” Another added that “It takes a level of blackness AND intelligence to understand snowfall’s greatness….”

And as if the backlash from the show’s fans wasn’t enough, one of the main actors, Amin Joseph, added fire to the flames, boldly telling DaniLeigh, “It’s a black thang, you wouldn’t understand.”

The “No Limits” singer famously claimed that she was 39% West African, and fans had a field day disputing it.

That claim came amidst backlash for her song “Yellow Bone”. Critics called out the singer for being a colorist for bragging in the song’s lyrics that “Yellow bone” was what her man wanted. The singer had been dating rapper DaBaby, and many thought the line was a dig at his ex, who is dark-skinned. Needless to say, many were displeased with the song and its lyrics. There were several calls to boycott her music, and many social media users celebrated when DaBaby recently called it quits on the relationship.

A post shared by 2Cool2Blog (@2cool2bl0g)

While many were happy to see DaniLeigh being shaded so publicly over her dislike for Snowfall, there was at least one person who shared her views on the series. A Twitter user argued that “Its alot of ppl that don’t watch snowfall because they can’t get it into. Everything is not always about color. Yall not trashing them dam Kardashians. Just because someone rich say something people play follow the leader. I like @DaniLeigh and I live @SnowfallFX.”

Sadly, it seems the backlash has finally taken its toll on the singer as she later took to Instagram and posted a heartbreaking message on Story.

“I feel like I cry every other day..I just want my life to change already…I don’t wanna be here no more..I got no real love around me,” she expressed.

Fans are now sending out well wishes as they pray for the singer. One user wrote, “Y’all push her too far to the edge. She can’t post nothing without y’all attacking her. Praying for her.”

Perhaps this will help the singer push through as we all hope that she is doing okay.

Eminem Creates Billboard History With “Curtain Call: The Hits”

Eminem’s old music is still creating chart history.

Eminem has been at the center of many controversies over the years. Fans are divided on his greatness in the rap genre, but his indelible mark has already been made, and his name will always be called in those considered the greatest to ever spit rhymes. He seemed destined for greatness from his first major-label released album, “The Slim Shady LP,” in 1996, and he didn’t disappoint over the years.

His greatest hits collection, called “Curtain Call: The Hits,” which he dropped in 2005, has already been certified 7x-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and not surprisingly so since it’s a collection of his top tracks like “Lose Yourself “and “Guilty Conscience” featuring veteran rap mogul Dr. Dre. Following the release of the 17-track project, it easily occupied the top spot on the Billboard 200.

Now comes news that the album has created Billboard history as, according to Forbes, it is now the first Hip Hop record to spend a full decade on the Billboard 200. Another report from Chart Data confirmed that “Curtain Call” had reached a whopping 520 weeks on the latest chart dated March 27.

The album joins the top 10 of others to do well. The list includes some major names in music like Bob Marley and the Wailers’ “Legend,” which stayed on the charts for 669 weeks. Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon holds the record with 958 weeks. “Curtain Call” is number six on the list.

By now, the “Rap God” singer is used to smashing records as last January 2020, he became the first artist to have ten consecutive number-one debut albums on the Billboard 200. That album “Music To Be Murdered” would go on to sell close to 300,000 total album-equivalent units in its opening week. The 48-year-old doesn’t really show any signs of slowing down, and why would he, considering he has 13 No. 1 singles and 15 Grammy Awards and still flows as fast as when he was a young rapper.

Govana Drops Visual For Anti-Badmind Anthem “Big Dreams”

Govana once again graces us with fresh quality content while frowning on “badmind” haters.

The dancehall deejay released what fans are saying is another big hit. The song titled “Big Dreams” was released on Wednesday and already making it to the trending lits, with a count that is still rapidly increasing. Released through the Quantanium Records label, the 3 minutes 16 second song tells a story of a man who was cut down because of his “Big Dreams.”

The song and video are dominated by the theme of jealousy and envy. The video opens on an all-white scene. The main protagonist sees a man waking up in a bed with white sheets, dressed in full white, representing success and great accomplishments. He is met with a lady, also wearing white who offers him a set of fancy jewelry and sends him through a door.

At the other side of the door, he is then met with a woman in a white top and black jeans, who offers him a glass of wine leads him to a white Maserati. But after a while, the jewelry and the car begin to fade. The same man is then seen in less lavish attire, sleeping, before being smothered with a plastic bag. The lavish settings represented his dreams and aspirations which are cut short when he is smothered to death.

Govana appears in the video at regular intervals smoking and singing as if he is the narrator of the story. The video suggests that this is a personal story for the artiste as an old photo of a young boy in khakis standing with his hands folded, captioned “Live On” is the final thing seen before it ends.

He sings “Mankind unkind, wicked and vicious, devil was an angel who can we trust?” This line seemed to be the favorite of fans who flooded the comment section with fire emojis.
