Man Behind ‘Joanne The Scammer’ Speaks Out In First Interview

Joanne The Scammer is a bad b*tch who scams men out of millions, but the guy behind the bad wigs and fur coats is far different. Branden Miller was adopted at a young age to white parents, and only found out he was of Black and Puerto Rican decent when a family friend let the secret slip at 17.


(Photos) Clearly, Young Metro Trusts The FADER

Welp, looks like FADER mag can put away their bulletproof vests. They’ve obtained the trust of young Metro Boomin, and thus he appears on the cover of their April/May 2016 issue. Thanks to Future rapping the now-infamous tagline, the successful producer is now seeing a lot more mainstream fame, and is even selling his own merchandise. Sitting down with FADER, he discusses how he OJ The Juiceman was the first rapper to give him a shot, how his mother was so supportive she’d drive him roundtrip from St. Louis to Atlanta weekend after weekend so he could work with OJ, how he’s working on Views From The 6 and more. It’s a REALLY great read.

Drake On Meek Mill Beef: “You guys didn’t think this through at all—nobody?”

Drake will cover The FADER’s 100th issue, and he’s certainly making it an interesting one. For the first time, the OVO rapper is addressing the Meek Mill beef head on, and I’m sure that his comments are going to set Meek off once again! “This is a discussion about music, and no one’s putting forth any music?” Drizzy said in the interview. “You guys are gonna leave this for me to do? This is how you want to play it? You guys didn’t think this through at all—nobody? You guys have high-ranking members watching over you. Nobody told you that this was a bad idea, to engage in this and not have something? You’re gonna engage in a conversation about writing music, and delivering music, with me? And not have anything to put forth on the table?”


Meek Mill On Nicki Minaj: “It’s definitely real…but it ain’t really time to get married yet…”

Rumors of an engagement surrounded Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill last month, when Nicki began sporting a gorgeous rock on her special finger that was gifted from her MMG boo. As the rumors continued to swirl, the pair neither confirmed nor denied the reports – leading more to believe that it was definitely the real deal. However, Meek has finally addressed them in his cover story with The FADER…and sorry Omeeka fans, but it’s not an engagement…yet. “It’s definitely real,” told the magazine about the relationship, “but it ain’t really time to get married yet. We’re still learning each other, feeling each other out.”

(Photos) Migos Cover The FADER…And Wish Drake DIDN’T Jump On “Versace”?!

Coinciding with the release of their new mixtape Rich N*gga Timeline today, The FADER announced that the Migos trio will cover their December/January issue, on newsstands December 9. With photos released online along with a preview of the interview, I came across quite the interesting tidbit said by Pierre “Pee” Thomas, co-founder of Quality Control Music (which I guess is their crew/label?) “It was a gift and a curse,” Pee said of Drake jumping on and consequently blowing up their breakout single, ‘Versace.’ “Sometimes I really wish he had never jumped on it…it was gonna blow without him.” Interesting…and most certainly overly-confident…but I do get it. They had to constantly stand in Drake’s shadow for quite some time following the record, and a lot of their success was attributed to him “discovering” their song, rather than simply their talent. Still, I probably wouldn’t have said that. What do you guys think?
