Now that he’s officially a U.S. citizen, Slick Rick is hitting the road on a victory tour. The Victory Tour begins with Kentucky Derby Festival’s “Waterfront Jam” on Tuesday, May 3, then travels to several cities across the Midwest and South. Of course a hometown show in New York City is in the works – Rick moved to the BX at age 11 from the UK. Details for NYC will be announced soon. “I’m celebrating a new beginning and am thankful for the many blessings already coming my way,” said Slick Rick. “One is the blessing of doing what I do best – perform – to celebrate the victory of citizenship after living in this country for so many years. We will celebrate in style.” Check out the full list of dates below.

DJ Khaled Missed Court Because Of ‘Formation’ Tour

ifwt_DJ Khaled x Jay Z

DJ Khaled had a warrant out for his arrest for about 5 seconds this week. But no worries – he didn’t play himself. On Tuesday, Khaled was scheduled for a court appearance for a boating violation, but he missed it as he prepared for this little thing called Beyonce’s WORLD TOUR. The warrant for missing the April 26 date was quickly lifted because “the defendant had not been served with the new information filed today by the prosecution,” and has since been rescheduled to May 17. Khaled has an off day from tour that day, so he should be able to make it…BUT – May 16 is in CA and May 18 is in Seattle, WA…would Khaled be willing to hop on a plane to take care of this? There’s no way his bus is making all of those dates, and you know he hates flying! Hmm!

Nardwuar is one of the best interviewers of our time, delving into his subjects’ past with crazy facts that only those they grew up with would know, making for genuine reactions we don’t get out of these celebs very often.

Though Nardwuar interviewed Drake back in 2010, a LOT has changed since then, so there’s a lot to cover. As we wait for this to drop, you can tune in to Beats 1 at 10pm EST tonight for the premiere of Views. Drizzy SZN.

Jersey City Street To Be Renamed After Kool & The Gang

The legendary Kool & the Gang are already a part of the New Jersey Hall of Fame (can’t lie – didn’t even know we had one,) so it’s only right that their hometown get a street named after them! Tomorrow, April 29, the portion of Maple from Pacific Avenue (where Ronald “Khalis” Bell and his brother Robert, aka “Kool,” grew up) to Whiton Street in Jersey City will be renamed Kool & the Gang Way. “It’s the equivalent of having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said Khalis. “I never dreamed of it. I’m humbled and honored. And it’s just amazing that it’s that corner where we grew up.” That’s really dope, and I’m proud to call that city home! Can’t wait to visit the street sign when it’s up!


Petey Pablo Files For Bankruptcy

ifwt_Petey Pablo

For the third time since 2009, Petey Pablo has filed for bankruptcy. The North Carolina rapper claims he only has around $50k in assets, with his liabilities in the same range. His creditors include the IRS, Planet Fitness, Enterprise, Ford Motor Credit, law firms and more. Petey’s two previous bankruptcy filings were dismissed after he’d failed to pay on his re-payment plan to creditors, so some of this is likely left over from years back. Having done a four-year bid from 2010 to 2014, it must have been tough to keep everything in order, particularly because he had no real income. Petey recently had a part on Empire, so hopefully he can turn that into something more and start paying these debts off!

Judge Confirms Prince Had No Will

ifwt_Prince

A judge has officially confirmed what Prince’s sister Tyka thought – he did not have a will. The bank he used for many years (which is the one Tyka named in her filed documents to start probate proceedings,) has been appointed to manage his assets, as well as become the administrator of Prince’s estate for the next 6 months. After the 6 month process, a personal representative can be appointed. It has a possibility of getting messy, as all 6 of Prince’s siblings (1 full, 5 half) are entitled to their equal share of his $150 million fortune. One would assume it would go to Tyka, who is Prince’s only full sibling, but you can’t be sure. As it was today, Prince’s half brother, Omarr Baker, appeared at the hearing.
