IFWT Exclusive: Maino Gives Us The REAL Story Of What Happened With The Porn Star!

Maino

Maino is currently being sought out by the NYPD for questioning, after an adult film star accused him of assaulting her inside of his truck after they partied at Griffin on Monday night with Drake, Ashanti, JR Smith and more. According to the police report filed by the porn star, Mellanie Monroe, “he started punching her and fled,” but I spoke directly to Maino and her story has quite a few holes in it.

Maino explains he met Mellanie about a year and a half ago on Twitter, and they exchanged phone numbers at the time. Though they’ve briefly text messaged since then, they hadn’t actually met until the party on Monday night. Prior to meeting and even that night, what was supposed to transpire between them was always quite clear – nothing more, nothing less. While in the club, both Maino and Mellanie were on the same page, made evident from what she was saying in text messages to him, and after the party, the “after-party” was supposed to be good to go. It wasn’t the same story once they got into their awaiting SUV, however.

DeJ Loaf

23-year-old Detroit native DeJ Loaf is experiencing a whirlwind right now, thanks to her song that so sweetly sings about catching bodies and leaving a b*tch n*gga’s head in pasta, “Try Me.” Released on her SoundCloud account in late July just for the hell of it, the pint-sized rapper/singer never dreamed that it would have her in New York City a mere 2 months later, discussing her reaction to Drake quoting it on Instagram or the likes of Wiz Khalifa and her favorite, E-40, hopping on for the remixes. But it has, and now DeJ is gearing up for the ride of her life. Backstage at Hot 97‘s ‘Who’s Next’ showcase on Thursday night, I caught up with lil’ DeJ to discuss her upbringing, her style, how “Try Me” came about, what we can expect next and more.

(Photos + Video) Ty Dolla $ign, Jhene Aiko & Raury Perform For vitaminwater x The FADER’s #uncapped Series

Raury x Jhene Aiko x Ty Dolla $ign x uncapped x Philly

On Tuesday night, The FADER and vitaminwater gathered Jhene Aiko, Ty Dolla $ign and newcomer Raury at The Skybox in Philly for their “Hydrate The Hustle” #uncapped series. If there’s a Ty Dolla $ign show in the tri-state area…or better yet anywhere in the U.S. when I don’t have to work…there’s a high chance I’m there, so I most definitely was in Philly goin’ up on a Tuesday.

First up was ATL singer Raury, who’s got quite the buzz on the underground, even having caught the attention of Kanye West recently. I hadn’t heard any of Raury’s music until the show, and I must say I was impressed, and I can see why the industry is buzzing about him being the “next big thing.” Backed by a full band and mixed in with high-energy performances of tracks from his recent Indigo Child mixtape, Raury also covered a few Nirvana and Queen songs…definitely winning me over with a childhood favorite of mine, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

(Photos) So Drake Is STILL Using Rihanna’s Image For “Days In The East” Performance

Drake x Rihanna 8.13.14

During his OVO Fest set earlier this month, Drake caused headlines when his “Days In The East” performance included quick flashes of Rihanna on the screen behind him, emblazoned with fire and in between flashes of the letter ‘6.’ Originally thought by media to be a roundabout way of calling his former flame “evil” or the devil, Drake took to Twitter to clarify that the 6 was simply in homage to his forthcoming album, Views From The 6, and that he thinks Rihanna is “a good girl.” (The 6 references 416 – Toronto’s area code.) However, he never explained why Rihanna’s picture was there, but credible outlets reported that it was because he was “bitter” that she doesn’t want him back, and that afterward, “his friends called him out for the picture and Drake has since regretted his decision.” Seems like that’s a bit inaccurate!

Unfortunately, Wayne still lost last night. LOL! Check out the full performance below.
