A new report from TMZ reveals that a member of Fetty Wap’s team fired first in the robbery and shooting that occurred early yesterday morning in the rapper’s hometown of Paterson, NJ. That same person then Cheddar Bob’d themselves (aka shot himself in the thigh, SMH!)


(Photos) Nicki Minaj Throws Some More Shade At Trey Songz

Nicki Minaj isn’t done with Trey Songz just yet. The Pinkprint rapper has been upset with Trigga since Remy Ma’s “SHEther” diss was released, when she felt that he didn’t deny Remy’s allegations they’d slept together fast enough. From there, she dissed him on Twitter and said that she is responsible for his success, and he followed up with an interview saying that she didn’t have a major hit before he came around. To add to the petty party, Nicki decided to remind Trey that he once opened for HER on tour, and did so in the most indirect and shady way possible. LOL! Check out what she said below.


(Photos) Did You Know That Drake Has A Sister?

Apparently, Drake has a half-sister on his father’s side, who is just two years younger than him AND from the same city. According to Wikipedia, Drake’s parents split when he was five…so perhaps this was one of the reasons? What we do know is her name is Steph, she has three kids (so maybe those are the nieces that Drake has rapped about) and she’s proud of her big bro. Check out pics of her below!


(Photos) Random: Check Out This Flirtatious Exchange Between Mindy Kaling & Senator Cory Booker

On last week’s episode of The Mindy Project, the show’s star Mindy Kaling made a joke about former Newark, New Jersey mayor and current state Senator, Cory Booker. “Cory Booker? I can’t believe he came,” her character said. “I guess anything to get out of Newark, huh?” This prompted a funny response from Sen. Booker – which then sparked quite a flirty exchange. Hmm! These two would be a pretty cute couple…

(Photos) Eminem’s Daughter Hailie Is Your Every Day College Student

Eminem’s daughter, Hailie Jade Mathers, is now in college and enjoying a pretty low-key life. She has a boyfriend, appears to be into the “Insta-fashions” and does her makeup like Kylie Jenner and every other 20-something with a wifi connection these days. One interesting thing is her IG name, though. Going by the handle @hailiescott1, Hailie is using her mother’s maiden name, instead of her father’s last name – despite that being her real name. It’s possible she just didn’t want the attention, but I don’t know – could there be some trouble there? We all know how much Em adores his Hailie Jade, so that’s definitely an eyebrow-raiser!


XXL Releases Their First Round of 2017 Freshman Potentials

It’s that time of year again! XXL will soon be releasing their annual Freshman list. Each year, 10 of the hottest upcoming acts make the cut – 9 of which are hand-picked by the XXL staff, the tenth being voted in by fans. XXL releases all of their options on a voting site, allowing fans to vote every four hours for their favorite(s). Be smart about your votes, though! The artists on this list include the ones XXL has already chosen, but of course they don’t want to let you know which ones they are and ruin the surprise! My advice is to vote for your favorite acts that are lesser known on the list, as the more popular ones are likely to have already made the cut.


RIP: The Young Fan Who Received A FaceTime Call From Beyoncé Last Week Has Passed Away

We’re saddened to report the death of Ebony Banks, the cancer-stricken teen who just last week received a FaceTime call from her absolute favorite artist, Beyoncé.

According to Houston publication KHOU, Ebony lost her battle just four days later. Below is a photo of a beautiful vigil they put together for her. Rest in peace, beautiful.


Guess Which Famous Rapper Nicki Minaj Turned Down For 2010 Single “Right Thru Me”

“Right Thru Me” was one of the singles off of Nicki Minaj’s debut album, Pink Friday, in 2010. The song doesn’t have any features, as Nicki sings about a relationship with someone who seemingly knows her better than she knows herself. In a Twitter Q&A over the weekend, Nicki revealed that the song almost had a big-name feature, but she ultimately turned them down because the song was just too personal for her. Instead, she gave this person a spot on another song on the album, “Blazin.” Guess who it is yet? Kanye West!
