  1. Delilah is an elegant bar and restaurant in West Hollywood, California. Some of the most famous celebrities breeze in and out of the venue on a regular basis, and Tyga decided to take over Delilah for his 29th birthday. 29 is a big year for everyone because it's perceived as the last year of "youth." Once we hit our thirties, things like going to the club, acting wild at festivals, and living reckless in several regards, becomes abhorrent to others. Nobody wants to be the older guy in the club (except maybe those misplaced older guys in the club). With that in mind, Tyga celebrated his last year of unjudged youth with strippers, alcohol, and a Belly theme. According to In Touch Weekly, Tyga opted to have Delilah redone in a Belly theme. The famous gangster flick starring Nas and DMX had one of the most memorable movie openings in hood classic history. “He transformed the night spot Delilah into the nightclub scene from the gangster movie Belly,” an insider told In Touch. “We had burlesque dancers from 9-11 and exotic dancers from Crazy Girls from 11pm-2am and a 3D cake of Tyga at the strip club!” TMZ got their hands on footage from the party, and it looks like a wild time.

  2. Birdman blessed Toni Braxton with a massive engagement ring, but the veteran vocalist has lost the expensive piece of jewelry. Money isn't an issue for Birdman, but his fiancé losing a very important token of his love may rub him the wrong way. Braxton took to Twitter to reveal that she left her Louis Vuitton train case on a Delta Airline flight. "Hey @Delta I left my LV train case on my flight from JFK to LAX on Tuesday. It’s been impossible to get any type of assistance from anyone in the company!," she wrote. Braxton hopped back on Twitter the following day with what started out as good news. "Hey everyone, @delta located my LV Train Case! Yay!," she wrote before the story took a tragic turn. "Unfortunately most of my jewelry items are missing...including MY ENGAGEMENT RING! Whoever BORROWED it...PLEEEASE return it!!!!" She also took to Instagram to spread positive vibes, writing, "I’m optimistic that someone will find Bonnie and return her home!" Bonnie is an interesting name for a ring, but when a piece of jewelry is that precious, apparently you name it. View the full article

  4. The news of Tekashi 6ix9ine's apparent downfall has enraptured the entire hip-hop nation. Although many rap fans have claimed for months that the rainbow-haired rapper's antics would one day catch up to him, no one expected him to be rolled up into a RICO investigation. Hot 97's Ebro took a good fifteen minutes to break down his opinion of the situation, and as always, his views are jarring. Ebro began the segment by reading facts from, and uses the information to help set up his argument. "Did ya'll wanna end up in jail?" he rhetorically asks. Ebro also reads a statement, sent directly to Hot 97, from the New York Police Department. "NYPD told us, that by the end of the year -and this was maybe July [of] this year- so they were speaking then. They said Tekashi would either be dead or in jail," Ebro revealed. "Now, this comes this morning from our source at the NYPD," he continued, quoting the letter as proof. "We actually tried to warn him, but he refused to listen. His crew should have shielded him from being involved in any crime, because he was their chance to get out." Ebro also asserted that Tekashi's violent run-in with Elliot Grainge expedited the process of him getting locked up. Grainge is the son of one of the most powerful music executives on the planet, so Ebro believes that Tekashi's crew causing a shooting during what should have been a meeting with Grainge incentivized his father to pull some powerful strings. Although that is just speculation, it doesn't seem like a far-fetched circumstance. Ebro even claims that industry insiders alerted him that the Tekashi and Trippie Redd beef was manufactured just for clout and views. Grainge signed both Tekashi and Redd, adding even more interesting lines to this complicated story. In conclusion, after repeatedly affirming that Tekashi played himself, Ebro has no ill will toward the "Gummo" rapper. After reminding his audience that Tekashi was hot for maybe 18 months, he hammers home his point. "I would rather be proved wrong," he stated. "The energy should be, trying to hopefully teach some young people, 'you see what just happened?'" Is trolling, and being hot for less than two years, really worth Federal charges?

  5. Joyner Lucas challenged Tory Lanez to a rap battle on Monday night, and the Canadian artist responded immediately. Lanez stepped up to the challenge with the "Lucky You Freestyle," proving yet again that those who underestimate his rapping ability are dead wrong. Lucas has snapped back with a rapid response though. Entitled "Litty Freestyle," the scorching response takes shots at both Lanez and Trippie Redd. The entire battle came to fruition after Lanez claimed that he was better than Lucas, prompting the latter to sanction the contest. Lucas' response arrived quickly, and he calls for him and Lanez to collaborate by the songs end. It feels like a cop-out, or a well-planned ruse to incite excitement. "Litty Freestyle" is a banger despite that one flaw at the conclusion. On the chorus, Lucas cleverly uses Lanez's name to piece together a whirlwind flow. Check out the response below, and let us know who you think won the battle. Quotable Lyrics You know Joyner got a hotter flow I'ma do what Travis should have did awhile ago I'ma do what Drake should have did awhile ago Throw your ass off a cliff, make you say 'Geronimo' View the full article
  6. To say 2018 was an eventful year for Eminem would be an understatement. After missing the mark with 2017's Revival, Em faced a wave of criticism from hip-hop heads and fans, in general, over the project's pop-centric sound. Thankfully, he redeemed himself with the release of his surprise album, Kamikaze. The release of Kamikaze came with a wave of its own criticism and controversy, but it marked the return of Slim Shady to his die-hard fan base. Today, the rapper continues to push the project with a brand new line of merch. Larry Busacca/Getty Images Eminem fans can cop themselves a new line of Kamikaze merch during Black Friday Weekend. The rapper took to social media to announce the "Kamikaze Night Combat" line. "#KAMIKAZE NIGHT COMBAT - REPORT FOR DUTY THURSDAY AT 21:00," he wrote alongside a mysterious video teaser and a link to the Eminem merch store. The link to the Eminem store encourages fans to sign up for "First Access" to the merch drop. For now, the only items that can be seen are a military-influenced hoodie and a black long-sleeve t-shirt. In addition to the clothing items, Eminem will also be selling special edition vinyl and cassettes. While Em's been pushing Kamikaze, fans have been hoping that hits the road soon. The rapper announced February dates in Australia for "Rapture Tour." Hopefully, Eminem is plotting on a North American summer tour for 2019. View the full article
  7. Wendy Williams apparently upset Iggy Azalea during one of her television show aired on November 15. The host commented on the rapper's feud with Bhad Babie and while she seemed to side with Iggy, Wendy still made sure to throw some shade as usual. “We haven’t heard from Iggy since “Fancy” so technically she’s [Bhad Babie] right. Isn’t she from Australia? When did she develop a Blackcent? She probably bought that at the same place she bought her booty and her boobs. Oh puh-lease. That is good coin well spent. She looks great! I think Iggy Azalea is beautiful” She continued by asking her audience to "clap if you don’t think she’s beautiful." Then she asked the person who clapped if they were gay before turning her attention back to Iggy. “You’re 28 [Iggy], you’re a grown woman, you have a fledgling career that nobody cares about. This “Catch Me Outside” girl is the next big thing. You should act unbothered by it all.” Iggy was quick to retaliate on social media. She tweeted a rant that was deleted swiftly.“Imagine having to F*CK Wendy Williams. Like you gotta moan and put her titty in your mouth. Sometimes I disgust my own self. I guess I just feel like if you’re pushing 60 without ever having lived an entire year on this planet where we could deem you attractive let alone a serve with a voice that would make any d*** soft – you should keep it a whole lot cuter on certain commentary.” Jason Merritt/Getty Images View the full article
  8. We're about to get hit with some dope projects on Thanksgiving, but the project the majority of hip-hop heads are looking forward to is the forthcoming Dipset reunion album. The Harlem collective has been teasing the project for over a year since they stepped on the RapCaviarLive stage together in November 2017. Now, they are coming full force with their project, Diplomatic Ties. Ahead of its release, they share the official cover art for the project. The Diplomats have shared the official cover art for their new project, Diplomatic Ties which drops this week. The NSFW cover art consists of a close-up shot of a woman's chest with a tattoo of The Diplomats logo. It's simple, yet effective and definitely got us excited for what they have up their sleeves. Diplomatic Ties has already spawned a few singles. Following their RapCaviar reunion, they released their single, "Once Upon A Time," however, they didn't really kick off the campaign until a few weeks ago. The Diplomats released their single, "Sauce Boyz" with an accompanying video that left Juelz Santana victimized by the Internet's wrath. Earlier this week, they shared their single, "On God" which features Belly and production from Murda Beatz. Aside from the two artists featured on "On God," Jim Jones recently revealed a few of the names that will be featured on the project including Tory Lanez, 2 Chainz, The LOX, Dave East, and Don Q, among others. Keep your eyes peeled for Diplomatic Immunity. View the full article

Who all is in this movie? In addition to the aforementioned Oscar winners... Read More View the full article
  10. It's not uncommon for rappers to claim they're one of the best, if not the best, in the game. It's part of hip-hop's competitive spirit that keeps the craft alive. However, anyone who claims to be the best must be able to back it up. Smokepurpp recently got on the 'Gram to claim a position as one of the top 10 artists ever. Smokepurpp has made some bold claims in the past regarding his artistry and impact in music, but today, he wants everyone to know that he stands among the GOATs. The rapper shared a photo of himself brushing his teeth with the caption, "HEYYYYYYY if your reading thing PURPP IS TOP 10 ARTIST EVER : A FACT." Back in July, Purpp made some equally bold claims when he dubbed himself "the Kanye West of the next generation." Shortly after, he, alongside Lil Pump and BlocBoy JB, said that they helped change hip-hop, which isn't false. Over the past few years, Purpp and Pump have been at the forefront of the new wave of rappers and helped shine a light on "Soundcloud rap." Nicholas Hunt/Getty Images Smokepurpp is currently on the road with DJ Carnage and Gucci Mane for the "Usual Suspects" tour which kicked off earlier this month in St. Paul, MN. The tour has already hit cities like Chicago, Brooklyn, and Washington. The tour is set to conclude in San Francisco on Dec. 7. View the full article
  11. Jada Pinkett recounted a terrifying situation during an episode of Red Table Talk. The women's conversation focused on the issue of domestic violence which led Pinkett to tell a story about a former lover. The actress explained how she was leaving a restaurant with this ex-boyfriend who insisting on driving even though he had been drinking. “He started getting really aggressive in the car. Thank goodness I knew where I was and I knew how to get out of the car and get to the house. I ran to the house. I had to take my clothes off, take off my heels. I always travel with a black Russell hoodie and black Russell sweats.” She said she took “a big ol’ knife from the kitchen” after changing her outfit and hid inside her boyfriend’s son’s room. She waited for the man there until he entered the home “on the creepy creep, creep like he was going to sneak up on me.” A frightened Jada heard eventually came out of the bedroom but kept her distance when she commanded him to stay away from her. “He said the quintessential line you hear in movies all the time, ‘You think I would hurt you? I would never do that to you,'” Pinkett Smith recalled. View the full article
  12. 22 years after his passing and Tupac Shakur is still making headlines. Whether it be over the sale of handwritten notes or younger rappers slandering his name, Pac's just as relevant now as he was in the past. It's been over a decade since his estate shared any of his unreleased music, but it looks like we could be getting a new posthumous album from 'Pac this weekend. Tupac's Instagram account, which is handled by his estate, teased a new release that'll drop this Saturday (Nov. 24). The account shared a black-and-white photo of the rapper with "1998" written across his face and "Saturday 11/24" written underneath. "Sign up to be the first to know," it reads underneath the photo. As Complex pointed out, the date provided marks the 20th anniversary of Tupac's Greatest Hits album. Although his estate hasn't mentioned anything about it, it seems like it could be new music. However, it's also possible that it has something to do with a new clothing collection. In the link in the account's bio, it gives fans two options: "1998 - Be The First To Know" and "NEW APPAREL: 2018 Fall Collection." However, when you click on either one of them, it directs you to a countdown for Saturday. At this point, it's unsure what exactly to expect, but hopefully, it means we'll get some unreleased music from 'Pac soon. View the full article
  13. It feels like we haven't heard much from Derez De'Shon in recent times, but that's about to change soon. With a new project on the horizon, he prepares for its release with his new single, "Whaddup Doe." Derez De'Shon is back with his new single "Whaddup Doe" featuring Sacramento's own Mozzy. The track features production from London On Da Track who's been locked in the studio with Young Thug working on Barter 7. The song follows the release of "Beat The Odds" which features YFN Lucci. Derez De'Shon and Mozzy link up on a West Coast-influenced beat and deliver a party anthem. "Whaddup Doe" serves as the latest single off of De'Shon's new project, Pain 2 which is expected to drop on Dec. 14. Keep your eyes peeled for that project. Quotable Lyrics I made a quarter million in the trap I'm not a rap n***a, just kind of know how to rap The hooker finna overnight the pack It'll be there in the morning, just tell lil' whoadie relax View the full article
  14. Kanye West has endured an intense version of the usual public scrutiny reserved of celebrities. While the public was left confused about his recent behavior, especially in relation to his expression of political views, Kim Kardashian seemed to remain supportive of her husband. According to a report stemming from an insider's testimony, the couple is fortifying their bond with therapy session during this trying phase in their marriage. “She is trying to figure out how to cope with his illness and the fallout, specifically about his politics. She is supportive and it’s hard for her when people have reacted so strongly.” “She is trying to understand why people are so hateful. It’s been ugly. They had to up their security because Kanye supports Trump. They are working with former secret service.” Craig Barritt/Getty Images When speaking of his upcoming album Yhandi, Ye had revealed that he was no longer taking any medication to treat his mental health. The rapper had previously been given a diagnosis of bipolar disorder that he is now rejecting. “Everyone in his inner circle agrees that it’s for the best that Kim gets to sign off on everything to do with Kanye. Kim has been doing serious damage control and it’s finally starting to take effect now." View the full article

    Anderson .Paak "Oxnard" Review

    After years of grinding for success, what happens when you get everything you want? 2016 was an inescapable year for Anderson Paak but the narrative attached to his rise is what made it feel so genuine. The man can do anything: play the drums, sing funk and rap about stealing your girl with a wink. It’s this charisma, besides his innate songwriting talents, that made him stand out on Dr Dre’s Compton, and dropping a solo album and a collab with Knxwledge in 2016 seemed to only bolster this notion. It’s also this innate charisma that singlehandedly saves every stiff and awkward moment found in Oxnard. His first album for Aftermath, with Dre executively producing and a slew of production courtesy of Paak himself, 9th Wonder, Q-Tip, Mell and members of the Free Nationals, aims sky-high. Kicking it off with a two-song suite that starts with the sound of flutes and ends with a serious case of road head gone wrong; Oxnard is supposed to be stadium-level shit. Paak has a great voice; a honeyed rasp seemingly capable of doing anything and as a rapper, he's emotive and charismatic. It’s his singing voice, something you can describe with a series of exclamation points, is what drew in listeners and it’s this voice that you hear on lead single “Tints,” a busy, knocking jam that you’ll hear all year regardless of the weather outside. Yet Oxnard pushes this to the sidelines and prioritizes the latter. It largely works out because Paak can still coax engaging melodies out of his raps, even if they’re a bit stilted at times. “Who R U” shows just what he can do when he’s engaged in Rap Paak mode, bouncing off the walls as the off-kilter drums threaten to swallow the entire room whole. Yet when given a bigger palette to draw from, Paak stumbles. “6 Summers” starts off as a free-associative jam; Trump’s lovechild, Fela Kuti and gun reform weighing heavily on Paak's mind before the band tears the song apart at the midway point, rebuilding it into a simmering, West Coast burner that leaves you to wonder why we had to get through some awkward freestyling first. “Mansa Musa,” featuring Dre, feels far closer to the latter’s Compton than Paak’s vision here. Album closer “Left to Right” features some grossly misplaced patois that feels incredibly out of place at the end of a journey; a wild monologue as the movie credits close and the wide angle shot of a serene Los Angeles fades to black. One benefit of working with Dre is the upgraded Rolodex of names to call upon. Snoop Dogg takes a break from hanging out with Martha Stewart to take young listeners to school on the g-funk “Anywhere,” sounding absolutely thrilled to reminisce. BJ The Chicago Kid comes in with a joyous guest vocal on “Sweet Chick,” a further reminder of Anderson .Paak’s charisma because nobody else can say something quite as ridiculous as "she be watching anime while I'm laying dick" and sell it with a wink and a laugh. “Brother’s Keeper” attempts the same trick “6 Summers” tried, but to better success, sounding brewed in the California desert as .Paak and Pusha T trade off verses about regret and success. “Trippy” finds J.Cole continuing his year of stellar guest verses with one about using rental cars as a flex and trying to catch up with old flames. Then there’s “Cheers,” a eulogy to times and people gone by. Loss weighs heavy on the minds of .Paak and Q-Tip, who paints a stunning tribute to Phife Dawg. “My story ain't over, I'm still turnin' pages” Q-Tip raps, “But the picture I painted with you in it has faded” Oxnard is no failure but it faults under the weight of its crushing ambitions. Malibu and Yes Lawd! gave .Paak plenty of room to do his thing but worked wonders with limitations. Here, we have a Paak looking to figure out just what he can do with more. But Oxnard, with its sinuous mix of West Coast funk and hedonistic rap, proves that Anderson .Paak is one of the best today and has a classic (if not multiple) waiting. He’s been patient throughout his entire rise to the top; it only makes sense to apply the same logic to his superstar moment. View the full article
