Days after Atlanta rapper Jeezy was arrested for possession of an assault rifle, fellow artist Drumma Boy has spoken out about the incident. According to the producer, he spoke to Jeezy just days before the arrest.
Drumma then commented on Jeezy’s “homeboys” and those associated with the rapper stepping up to “take that charge.”
Los Angeles emcee The Game collected over a dozen artists for his tribute song dedicated to Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager gunned down by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.
“Don’t Shoot” features Diddy, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh, Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank.
It appears the fifth time was the charm for Wiz Khalifa. The Atlantic Records rap star’s latest album, Blacc Hollywood, will open in the number one spot on the Billboard 200 album chart. This gives Wiz his first chart topper.
Blacc Hollywood sold around 90,000 units in its opening week. While those numbers were lower than the first week totals for his previous major label LPs Rolling Papers (197,000) and O.N.I.F.C. (148,000), they were enough to land Wiz at number one above the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack.
Good to be home. Yesterday (August 28th) Suge Knight returned home after being hospitalized for four days following a shooting altercation this past Sunday (August 24th) in West Hollywood.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Corina informed the New York Daily News that Knight was going to be questioned again regarding the shooting yesterday. Knight has reportedly been uncooperative with the police investigation with a law enforcement official informing the news publication that “we doubt he’s going to tell us anything. That’s typical in cases like this.”
G-Unit fans rejoiced when the group reunited this year, but one of the former members was not invited to take part in the reformed collective. After repeatedly going back-and-forth on whether he was open to getting back with the Unit, at the moment Game does not seem interested connecting with 50 Cent and crew.
“F*ck G-Unit! They can suck my d**k!” Game yelled at recent concert.
After repeatedly mocking Floyd Mayweather's reading ability, 50 Cent says the boxer is also struggling when it comes to finances and a diverse business portfolio.
"Floyd is one-dimensional," 50 says in an interview with XXL's Miranda Johnson. "The Money Team concept is one-dimensional. We actually started pushing it during the recession. It was cool ’cause his viewership was going up but it’s not actually the right message for me and who I am."
According to comedian Katt Williams, former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight was attempting to save another person when he was shot six times while at a West Hollywood, California nightclub during the weekend of the MTV Video Music Awards.
Williams, who says he was “with Suge” at the time of the shooting, revealed that only “an idiot” would believe that Knight was the person targeted in the shooting. He didn’t share the name of the person he believes was targeted, but did mention Chris Brown during his conversation with TMZ.
15 years of being Shady is about to be rewarded. Earlier today (August 25th) Eminem announced that he will be releasing Shady XV, a 2-CD compilation album commemorating Shady Records’ 15 year anniversary.
The 2-CD compilation album will feature the label’s hits such as “In Da Club”, “Lose Yourself” and others as well as a full CD of new material. Eminem is also giving out 500 limited edition “ShadyXV” T-Shirts.
50 Cent says that Eminem is one of his best friends and that the Detroit rapper’s talent makes some people uncomfortable.
“Hip Hop is Black music, without question, and, unfortunately for some people, it’s tough to accept that you have a White artist that does it better than Black artists,” 50 Cent says during an interview with Music Choice. "It is what it is. You can get like whoever you think is the best Black artist and stand them face-to-face in a room with Em and he will eat that [guy] alive. Right now if you had 'em prepare themselves, whatever way they would have to prepare themselves to come battle…I bet what I have, everything” that Eminem would win.
