IFWT Interview: King Los Talks Bad Boy Departure, Diddy’s ‘Nobody’ Rant, Putting The DMV On With Wale & More

King Los

Fresh off the release of his new mixtape, Zero Gravity II, I sat down to chop it up with King Los at 25 Degrees in Hollywood…….and had quite possibly the best milkshake of my life. Los and I, along with his longtime girlfriend Lola Monroe, had just left the Revolt studios across the street, catching YG’s show and bicken back bein’ bool with him and his 400 crew before hunger…and business…prevailed. I wanted to catch up with the Baltimore wordsmith to discuss his new project, and get the word straight from the horse’s mouth on his Bad Boy departure and all the rumors surrounding the recipient of Diddy’s epic rant sampled on Rick Ross’ Mastermind cut, “Nobody.”

In the last month alone, Los celebrated his son’s first birthday, his own birthday, released a thorough project that trended on Twitter for days, and embarked on a cross-country journey with longtime friend and collaborator, Kid Ink, for the “My Own Lane” tour…and that’s all surface stuff. An hour, 2 turkey burgers and that amazing milkshake later…I learned there’s so much more going on in this King’s court than most realize, and the future is looking royally good. Find out what he and Wale are plotting, what Weezy is inquiring and what Drake told him during a recent run-in below!

IFWT Exclusive Photos: Rihanna & Drake Canoodle In The Club After MTV Movie Awards

Drake and Rihanna hit Greystone

Rihanna and Drake have been the topic of many a conversation as of late, as they’ve all but flat out confirmed they’re a couple. From grinding on each other on stage to globe-trotting together and showing some PDA during public outings, ‘AubRih’ are definitely entertainment’s latest ‘it’ couple….should they actually be a couple, that is. Last night, they put their love on display once again, this time at one of their favorite clubs – Hollywood hotspot, Greystone Manor. My girl/fashion blogger Marisol happened to be in the building as well celebrating her 26th birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHICA!) and snapped some exclusive pics of the pair for IFWT! Hit the gallery for a few more of the night.

(Video) Ty Dolla $ign Brings Out Travi$ Scott For “Familiar” In Philly

Ty Dolla $ign x Travi$ Scott

On Saturday night, Ty Dolla $ign, Travi$ Scott and New Jersey up-and-comer Topaz Jones all hit the stage in Philly at the University of Pennsylvania. With Trav and Ty finally being on the same bill, the pair performed their collab “Familiar” together for the first time, a cut off Ty’s debut EP, Beach House. The track also features Chi-Town rapper Fredo Santana, who Ty performed the song with last month when he made his way to the Windy City. Since Ty and Trav are both the homies, I took the trip down to Philly, and figured while I was there, might as well record the performance for IFWT! Check out the footage below.

Dre Sinatra x YG x DJ Mustard x Ty Dolla $ign x Marisa Mendez at Greenhouse NYC

On Thursday night, the West Coast invaded NYC as Ty Dolla $ign, YG and DJ Mustard partied at New York hotspot, Greenhouse. With DJ Spade and Tali Gore on the 1′s and 2′s, the Pu$haz Ink crew popped bottles of Ace of Spades, Henny and more while turning up to cuts off YG’s new album My Krazy Life, Ty’s Beach House EP and the tons of singles DJ Mustard currently has topping the charts. I was so into it, I was throwing up W’s and all. LOL! (I blame it on the bottle of Henny that Ty’s DJ, Dre Sinatra, kept passing me.) Check out a few more pics from the night in the gallery. Shout to J. Rose!

Ty Dolla $ign Announces ‘Beach House’ Tour

Ty Dolla $ign

In support of his Beach House EP, Cali crooner Ty Dolla $ign will be hitting the road this Spring for the ‘Beach House’ tour. The 15-date trek will be mainly on the West Coast, kicking off April 29th in Fresno and wrapping up on May 22nd in his hometown of L.A. I’m going to need some East Coast dates in there ASAP though, so whoever handles that – get on it! Thanks in advance, LOL.

Speaking of the East coast, Ty will be appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Friday, performing his top-charting single “Paranoid” alongside The Roots. He also performed last night in Philly as part of Red Bull Sound Select’s concert series, and he definitely put on a good show! It was the first time in forever I actually left my phone alone and just watched the performance – no recording, no chatting backstage, no taking pics – and I truly enjoyed it. He’s one of my favorites! (If you missed our interview – check it out here.) Full list of tour dates and link to purchase tickets below.

Exclusive Details: Lil Wayne Shared A Jail Cell With Ashanti’s Stalker At Rikers!

Ashanti x Lil Wayne

Back in 2010, Lil Wayne did an 8-month bid at Rikers Island in New York, serving time for a gun charge he’d gotten in NYC in 2007. During his time there, he was locked up with a guy by the name of Devar Hurd…who was imprisoned for STALKING ASHANTI! Here’s the deal on that: Devar, a Chicago native who was in his early 30′s at the time, met ‘Shan at a gig back in 2009, and acquired her momager’s number under the guise of ‘doing business.’ From there, he began sending her explicit texts and D pics, which he would later claim were for her daughter. Enough was enough after one too many texts, and Tina Douglas had him locked up for stalking, receiving a full 2 years. Want to know the crazy part? This guy applied for an internship with me! I know him! More info below.

(Photos + Video) Machine Gun Kelly Takes Fans To The Beach For A Bonfire Party

MGK x EST

On Friday night, bad boys Machine Gun Kelly and French Montana were set to kick off Grammy weekend in L.A. with a joint concert, but it ended up being postponed at the last minute. Unfortunately, some of MGK’s fans had flown out from across the country for the show, while others had driven for hours, so he and his team wanted to make their trip worth their while. Getting in touch with them through Twitter, Team MGK ended up putting together a really dope night at the beach, bringing fans to a bonfire with drinks, food and of course, Machine Gun Kelly. The rapper sat and talked with the fans for hours, even playing some of his songs on his guitar and having them sing along. I’ve never seen anything like it, and I’m really glad I got to be a part of that! Check out a video of the night below and some pics in the gallery. #EST!
