Hmmm?


dr dre justin night

Dr. Dre is arguably rap’s greatest mentor, having helped to mould Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent and — to a lesser extent — Kendrick Lamar into bona fide superstars. Far away from Long Beach, Detroit, Queens or Compton, however, it appears The Doctor may have found his new secret weapon.

kanye west king louie

Worried that Kanye West’s new album will be full of soft ballads with Paul McCartney? Fear not, because Yeezy was spotted in the studio with Mr. Drilluminati himself, King Louie, last night. As Fake Shore Drive’s Andrew Barber pointed out a few days ago, King L was invited to Kanye’s Hollywood home (where Consequence is currently staying), presumably to work on his forthcoming LP. Of course, King Louie lent his gruff vocals to the Yeezus cut “Send It Up,” so it wouldn’t be crazy to hope for a second collaboration on this new project.

In the meantime, you can catch Kanye on Ellen this Thursday (January 29), where he’ll be talking about his new album, amongst other things.

Check out a screenshot of King Louie’s invitation from Kanye below…

iggy azalea

Iggy Iggy, Iggy, can’t you see? Sometimes your words just irritate me.

Forbes caught plenty of flack when they claimed Iggy Azalea was “running hip-hop” in an article last May (they were eventually forced to reword the title), and the latest bit of press on the Aussie raper is already garnering the same warm, positive response. Speaking with GQ for their upcoming February issue, Iggy essentially crowned herself one of rap’s modern day game-changers.

Joey Bada$$ reportedly got caught up with the wrong side of the law in Australia while performing at the Falls Festival near Byron Bay in New South Wales. Apparently, a 20-year-old security guard stopped Joey and asked him for credentials as he was heading to the stage. Things must have gotten heated because the man allegedly suffered a broken nose thanks to Bada$$’ fists. Billboard reports that he received medical attention and was brought to a hospital afterwards.

According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the Brooklyn rapper, age 19, was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm,” and must head back to Australian court on March 19. Police arrested Joey, and he was taken into custody for 1 night.

Update: Joey Bada$$’s camp released this statement.

“Joey can confirm that there was a misunderstanding with security at the Byron Falls Festival show, which resulted in charges being laid,” the rapper’s representative, Bradley Bledsoe, said in a statement, adding: “After fully cooperating with police, Joey was granted bail and entered a plea of not guilty to the charge.”

kurupt

“Mr. Sterling, I don’t have a problem with this guy,” says Kurupt. “He’s a great guy.” These were the exact words muttered from the West Coast rapper during an interview with Vlad TV. Back when the former L.A. Clippers coached was disgraced for making racist remarks, Kurupt was spotted leaving V. Stiviano’s house shortly after the scandal broke. At the time, we had no idea why or how he even knew her — but we now know they are close friends.

“He’s a good man. They took a good man down. He ain’t done nothing to nobody. Who did he harm? What’s the crime?”

Honestly, I’m so confused.

According to sources, Boi-1da handed both Puff and Drake a record over 8 months ago but Drizzy was getting frustrated with waiting around and released the song on his own (and it performed well).
