Fetty Wap’s Paterson High School Is Now Investigating His “Wake Up” Video

Fetty Wap’s “Wake Up” video has caused an investigation at Eastside High School in Paterson, NJ. I can’t say that I’m surprised at this news! The video was shot there, as it’s the school that the “Trap Queen” rapper attended before dropping out to pursue other avenues, and the questionable imagery in the final product has district administrators none too pleased. I’m sure I was not the only one a bit taken aback upon my first watch of the video last week, as scenes inside the school’s halls included a twerking stripper equipped with a pole, “students” (paid extras, likely of age) drinking 40s and other behavior one wouldn’t think a school would approve for a video that will be seen worldwide… And it turns out, they didn’t.

Zayn Malik Responds To Critics Saying He Bit His Album Artwork Off Lil Wayne

Former One Direction singer Zayn Malik is out on his own, and he recently released the cover art for his upcoming solo album. Featuring a photo from his childhood, updated with his tattoos from adulthood, many couldn’t help but notice Mind of Mine‘s striking resemblance to Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III cover – and promptly called Zayn out on it. Zayn has now responded via Twitter, explaining he’s “not tryna be no rapper,” and that his ideas have been with him “a long time.” Longer than 2008 – when C3 was released, though? Doubt it! He also RT’d a fan who noted that other artists have long been using their baby pictures for cover art (funny how all of their examples were rappers that Zayn is “not tryna be”), but the difference is clearly the tattoos. What do you think? Check out the comparisons in the gallery and let us know your thoughts! Mind of Mine is slated for release on March 25.

T.I. Apologizes For Saying He Wouldn’t Want A Woman To Be President Of The U.S.

Earlier today, T.I.’s interview with DJ Whoo Kid on Shade 45 was posted on the web. As politics became a topic of convo between the Atlanta rapper and the DJ, Tip shared his thoughts on a woman (like Hillary Clinton) running for President:

“Not to be sexist, but I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Just because every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. Every other position. But the president, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally and later they make very permanent cemented decisions and then later, it’s kinda like, it didn’t happen or they didn’t mean for it to happen. I sure would hate to just set off a nuke.”

Naturally, this was not taken kindly by the social media world, and almost immediately, Tip has issued an apology for his apathetic statements.


Rich Homie Quan Under Fire AGAIN After ANOTHER Song With Rape Lyrics Leaks

Okay, I went up to bat for this guy after the first rapeish kind of song leaked, but I can’t defend him after the same thing happened for a second time. C’mon, Rich Homie Quan! Last month, an old song of Quan’s made its way to the web, causing controversy because of the following lyrics:

“Don’t want your ho, just want that cookie from her/ She tried to resist so I took it from her/ How you gonna tell me no/ You must not know who I am/”

Quan later issued an apology, explaining that the song was unfinished and never intended to be released and that he would never condone rape, adding that his lawyer was working on its removal from the web. Unfortunately, less than a month later, he’s in the same exact situation.


Rich Homie Quan Under Fire For Leaked Track Alluding To Rape

Before I get into this article, I just want to say that I was listening to Eminem’s first album the other day, and thinking how much more outrage it would spark now then back in the late 90’s. Now I know he had his fair share of protestors and media outrage, but my goodness, people can’t even sneeze anymore without offending someone. Now on to this new controversy… On a recently-leaked track (meaning he didn’t intend for it to be released) named “I Made It,” Rich Homie Quan is accused of glorifying rape. Here are the lyrics in question:

“Don’t want your ho, just want that cookie from her/ She tried to resist so I took it from her/ How you gonna tell me no/ You must not know who I am/”


Zendaya Didn’t Get Approval From Her PR Team Before Responding To Giuliana Rancic

I came across an article today that revealed that Zendaya didn’t consult her PR team before responding to Giuliana Rancic’s racist statements on Fashion Police last week, and I’m actually impressed. As perfectly classy and mature as her response was, I was almost sure her publicist had a hand in tweaking it at least a little, but nope! “Zendaya did not consult her PR team before going ahead and issuing the statement,” an insider said “It is probably better that Zendaya didn’t because she would have been advised against it!”
