Some fans believe his love for crust-only pizza makes 'Kiss as if food preferences determine how dope a legendary MC is.

During his press rounds for his latest film I Got The Hook Up 2, a movie that recently hit theaters last weekP dropped by The Breakfast Club and discussed a myriad of topics, including black filmmakers creating films both by and for the culture.
"You got to realize why it's so important," Master P said of black artists taking ownership of their work. "When we do a project like Black Panther, we didn't benefit off that man. Like, black people was in the movie and we were happy and excited, but it wasn't us." The responses to P's comment were divided, but in an interview with Rolling Out, P doubled down on his remarks.
P didn't seem all that concerned with those that had a problem with his Black Panther remarks because he dared them to find a lie in what he said. "I’ve been in the community 21 years giving back," the philanthropist said. "So if we don’t make successful projects, how can we give back, because they’re not going to give back to us. They’re not going to give back to the community. We have to invest in us. So I was able to give 126 people speaking roles in this movie. And we’re up for the Guinness Book of World Records for the most speaking roles in a theatrical film. That means that we are giving people opportunities."

Someone unleashed the Teyana Taylor's' inner beast and she didn't care who witnessed it. Taylor was at an event minding her business when she got into a confrontation with members of Floyd Mayweather's The Money Team. A witness captured the moment on camera and viewers can see that whatever went down was serious because Taylor was squared up and ready. 
Another man attempted to quell the situation by standing in front of Taylor, but she made sure that her grievances were heard.
Taylor asked one of the men from TMT a question, but instead of answering, he responded disrespectfully and called her out of her name. This angered the singer and she went off on him. After the social media outlet shared the Snapchat clip, Taylor jumped in the comments to clarify that she wasn't acting out of character over something insignificant.
"A persons tone can be at level 1 but DISRESPECT can be at level 100," she wrote. "Trust & believe if I’m going off on someone it’s w/ very good reasoning. I will not tolerate any disrespect from anyone, idc who the hell he work for." Snoop Dogg can be seen in the video clip standinig nearby, but he didn't seem to want to get involved in the altercation. He did, however, also share his thoughts on the situation in the video's comments.

Lil Wayne - Teases a Guest on Funeral Album

 

The last time Wayne cooked up a project, XXXTentacion, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar and others featured on the work. As reported by XXL, Weezy F Baby is planning on bringing Lil Baby along for the ride this time. Noting that he's worked with a ton of artists for Funeral, Wayne felt comfortable enough shouting out one of Atlanta's fastest rising young stars during his interview. "I’ve worked with a bunch of artists already," he told the publication. "I don’t want to give up the goods on too many. 
Lil Baby. I’m a big Lil Baby fan. So it was a swap type of thing. You send me a song, I send… that type of thing. But actually he demanded that he work with me. That’s a new thing these days. Back in the days when I was doing it, there was no such thing as you send me your song. You had to be in the studio with that person. He demanded that. So I respected that. We got to do the session together. We was out here in New York, not long ago. Probably a month ago. It was him, I and Big Sean."
Wayne isn't sure if Big Sean will end up on the final version of the track but for now, we can look forward to hearing "I Do It," the collab between Wayne and Baby. As for the production on Funeral, we can expect a lot from LoopHoles, Rio, London on da Track, MonstaBeatz, and more

Tay-K - Pleading Guilty to Armed Robbery

Image result for tay k

Tay-K of "The Race" fame is officially on trial. Tay-K has pleaded not guilty to an additional count of aggravated robbery, as well as one charge of capital murder. He has, however, pleaded guilty to two charges of armed robbery, with his defense attorney Jeff Kearney claiming that Tay-K indeed "agreed to participate in a robbery," though he did not possess awareness that a murder was to be committed. Unfortunately, the robbery ultimately went sour when Tay's associate Latharian Merritt claimed the life of Ethan Walker, a 21-year-old father who died from a gunshot wound to the stomach.
According to Kearney, the guilty plea is a sign that Tay "accepts responsibility" for committing the robbery. Still, he maintains that Tay-K had no inclination that Merrit “was going to go in and intentionally kill for no reason, intentionally kill Ethan Walker.” Moreover, he maintains that no amount of evidence could suggest otherwise. 
Opposition counter by suggesting Tay K was eager to involve himself in the robbery, claiming that he expressed willingness to "take care of" the situation upon learning there might be a gun in the place. He also claims that Tay-K and his associates entered the house with a pair of guns and brass knuckles, with the logic therefore being, "what else might he have expected." 
If Tay-K is indeed charged with capital murder, the punishment is life with the possibility of parole. Seeing as he has pleaded guilty to a pair of aggravated robbery charges, he's requesting probation. Unfortunately for Tay-K, he's also facing a second capital murder charge, which occurred during his "Race" when he allegedly shot and killed 23-year-old Mark Saldivar. Not only that, but he rounded things out with a reported assault on a 65-year old man named Skip Pepe.

A former rapper and reality star cursed at police and used racist language against an officer after he was arrested last month, according to newly released body cam footage.
The video shows Raymond “Benzino” Scott screaming anti-Asian slurs against one of the arresting officers as he was taken to jail for allegedly missing a court date.

Officers with the Brookhaven Police Department arrested Scott outside of his home on June 22. The rapper, producer and former cast member on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta has had multiple run-ins with law enforcement over the years.

Police noticed Scott’s car blocking traffic on Durden Road near Blackburn Park around 11 a.m. and decided to approach, according to a report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Scott drove away and into a nearby apartment complex, but by then the officers had performed a search on his license plate and discovered there was a warrant for his arrest, police said.

Ice Cube - Lamar Can Try Again Next Year

50 Cent - Has Tony Yayo under Debt

50 Cent Clarifies Relationship With Chaz Williams: "Why My Name In This Shit" 

Though Tony Yayo was not spared from the scolding, the original Unit member is nothing if not loyal, perhaps to a fault. In fact, Tony has consistently remained loyal to 50, even after being on the receiving end of a Fofty threat. Yet the show must go on, and some bonds can hold fast even amidst the tumultuous times. Perhaps there's still hope for the G-Unit boys. After all, Tony Yayo and 50 Cent recently put their differences aside and shared the stage during Oregon's "Whiskey Festival." 

On Yayo's IG, the Unit pals can be seen rocking the stage to "P.I.M.P," with Yayo going so far as to hashtag "#GUnit." Now, it's a far cry from seeing Buck and Fif up there, but perhaps there's hope for them yet. After all, G-Unit has been through animosity many-a-time, and it's likely the connection runs deeper than rap. Do you think the crew will be alright?

Remy Ma and Brittney Taylor 

Rapper Remy Ma — who is charged with punching a reality TV castmate of “Love & Hip Hop: New York” — claimed in Manhattan court Friday that her accuser is harassing her stepdaughter.
The Bronx rapper’s lawyer, Dawn Florio, told a Manhattan Criminal Court judge that she plans to hand over screenshots to prosecutors proving her client’s foe, TV personality Brittney Taylor, has been bothering Ma’s stepdaughter by phone and on social media.
Taylor “has actively been calling my client’s daughter as well as tagging her on social media,” Florio griped to reporters outside the courtroom. “Remy doesn’t want her daughter to be harassed by Brittney.”
the DA’s office has “an open mind” about the case and that she hopes to convince prosecutors to toss the charges against Ma by her next court appearance Sept. 26.
Ma’s real name is Reminisce Smith. Her stepdaughter is Dejanae Mackie, the daughter of her husband, rapper Papoose.
Neither Taylor nor her lawyer were in court Friday.

Mural of Sean Price - Tarnished

Image result for mural of sean price

Next month will make it four years since Hip-Hop artist Sean Price passed away. The member of Heltah Skeltah, Boot Camp Clik, and Random Axe was in top creative form. Although accolades came to Price during the 1990s alongside Rockness Monsta, the Brownsville, Brooklyn native had catapulted himself to elite status through solo releases like Monkey Barz and Mic Tyson. Since passing away in his sleep on August 8, 2015, the husband and father has become a beloved figure throughout the Hip-Hop community. 
Shortly after Sean’s passing, renowned artist and muralist MeresOne painted a tribute mural in Brooklyn. Like murals of Big L, Big Pun, and Biggie Smalls, the piece of art has become a Hip-Hop landmark, in the same streets in which Price made his home throughout his 43 years of life.  
Located at Kingston Avenue and Bergen Street in Crown Heights, that mural’s future is now in jeopardy. Sean’s wife (and sometimes musical collaborator), Bernadette Price, has informed fans that the building attached to the mural has been sold. The new owner allegedly has begun efforts to cover up a visual used in music videos by a host of Rap peers. 
“The new [owners] were caught about to paint over his face stating they were ordered to do so. However, I’m doing all that I can, for now, to not let this happen. However August 8 is around the corner, and I’m hoping they don’t violate his mural before then,” Bernadette writes. Ms. Price adds that if the mural is covered up, she is planning with MeresOne to paint another tribute. His label, Duck Down Music, Michael Rapaport, and host of Sean’s friends and peers have expressed their support.
Ambrosia For Heads has created a petition that Sean Price family, friends, and fans can sign to show the powers that be that is more than just a painting on a building.

52 year old songwriter/R&B and Hip Hop artist, Robert Sylvester Kelly (billed as R. Kelly) was arrested in New York less than 24 hours ago after indictments were issued to place Kelly under sex crime persecution.
The indictments were filed in 2 distinctive states both in Chicago (the artists hometown) and in New York.

According to the indictment in the state of Chicago, the case out of federal court was amounted to 13 count while in New York, 5 additional counts were put out.
R. Kelly maximum sentence can be instituted to 60 years to Life once all charges are placed in judgement.
