Christina Milian is your latest celebrity to weigh in on what’s going on in the today’s society with it’s number one issue of police brutality. In the early hours of this morning she took to Twitter to let out her feelings on the situation, encouraging for all to stand together and finished with the hastag #AllLivesMatter…the twittersphere just wasn’t having it.
Rich Homie Quan screwing up (aka completely forgetting) Biggie’s lyrics at Hip-Hop Honors on Monday night was the flub heard ’round the world. Naturally, everyone has something to say about it, because as a hip-hop artist, there’s no reason you shouldn’t know “Get Money” word for word – no matter where you’re from! Not only that, but it’s not like you were called out of your seat and asked to perform it out of the blue. How could you be so unprepared to honor such a legend at a LIVE show?
Yesterday, TMZ reported that Lil Wayne had suffered another seizure – making it his third in under a month. According to their report, it occurred last week in Las Vegas, and he had been treated and was already home recovering. “False Alarm!” Weezy tweeted after the reports circulated. “I appreciate da prayers and konsern but I’m good!!! Luv!!!!”
Fetty Wap is out here living the dream. His love life has been a focal point of his career for the last year, as he’s been linked to multiple women in seemingly serious relationships, including Atlanta model Alexis Sky, his hometown girlfriend Yaya, his one-year-old daughter’s mother Lezhae, and reality star Masika Kalysha, who recently welcomed a daughter with him as well.
OVO Megan, the young cancer patient who has succumbed to her illness, was Drake’s biggest supporter. The Make-A-Wish foundation set up a meeting between the two in Miami a couple weeks back for Megan to meet her idol along with Rihanna, and now the two superstars share their heartfelt eulogies on IG to OVO Megan.
Chief Keef keeps it real (honorable these days) and says he only knows one song each from Pac and Biggie. It’s not that surprising tbh, I just wish more of this generation would speak up like him and not be afraid of what their older hip-hop peers thought. It’s not your fault you weren’t 17 or 18 when Pac and Biggie were running the game lol…you can still go back and learn your hip-hop roots if you’re a millenial, but it definitely does not have the same exact effect on you it had on people who experienced the Notorious B.I.G and Tupac in their prime during the 90s.
In the last 48 hours, two innocent lives were lost because of trigger-happy police. They were both black men. The cops were not. This is just the latest in an on-going issue between cops and people of color – or on an even broader scale (so you #AllLivesMatter people will actually pay attention,) cops with a God complex and innocent people who don’t deserve to die. There is no justification. Selling CDs doesn’t equal a death sentence. Selling cigarettes doesn’t equal a death sentence. Carrying a toy gun doesn’t equal a death sentence. And carrying a licensed weapon, rightfully informing the cop who stopped you for a busted tail light about it and reaching for your ID as asked also does not equal a death sentence.
Many are questioning that Drake will respond with a diss track of his own towards Joe Budden, so the Slaughterhouse MC might be taking a new tactic to draw out the boy. He writes (types) him a good ol fashion statement.
