Amongst the BeyHive’s attack on Rachel Roy, another name came up on the list of potential Becky’s with the good hair: Rita Ora. The singer had been signed to Roc Nation for quite some time, and only just left earlier this year…on VERY bad terms. It was odd, considering how much time and money was invested into her from Jay Z personally, walking her into radio stations and having her with him often back in 2012 and 2013. After some digging, the BeyHive uncovered other odd “coincidences” – like Rita wearing the same dress from Bey’s “Formation” video this week (after Lemonade dropped,) and posting to Snapchat wearing a bra with lemons on it and what appeared to be a necklace with a J. (Upon further inspection, the letter is an R. Also, I believe that this is an OLD Snap that has resurfaced, as evidenced by the time stamp in the corner that’s no longer part of the app.)
Just last week, Bryson Tiller took to Instagram to reveal that his debut album, TRAPSOUL, had officially gone gold. This means that since its release in October 2015, it had sold and/or streamed over 500,000 copies. Turns out, he was sharing the news over a month late, and now there’s an even bigger update: TRAPSOUL is platinum! “so a few days ago, we told everyone that this album went Gold. They actually told me it went Gold a month or so ago but wanted me to wait until my Radio City Show to tell people,” Bryson began in an Instagram post today. “Well…. Right after the show they surprised me and told me that T R A P S O U L is officially a Platinum Album. words cannot explain how i feel. thank you if you bought this, you changed my life.” Wow, how amazing is that?! Congrats, Pen Griffey!

Philly’s own, Quilly, has been reportedly shot as one of the five shootings in four hours that took place in Philadelphia yesterday morning. Fortunately, he has survived but is in critical condition as of now. Read the full story after the jump.
Despite dealing with drama back home, Future is keeping his professional life booming, and appears on the cover of GQ this month for their annual style issue. “Wide-brimmed hats are to the slurring, swerving Atlanta rapper born Nayvadius Wilburn what white suits are to Tom Wolfe: an instantly recognizable daily uniform,” the mag writes. “Look closely at these three and you’ll notice they’re all the same basic style. They’ve got the teardrop crown of a traditional fedora, and the brims have an Outback flair.”
