rich-homie-quan

Rich Homie Quan is sorry. The Atlanta rapper made headlines after VH1’s “Hip Hop Honors” on Monday night (Jul. 12). RHQ joined Lil’ Kim to perform The Notorious B.I.G.’s verse off Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s “Get Money.” The moment on stage quickly turned bad as Rich Homie Quan got a lyric wrong, rapping “play Nintendo with Cease and Alamo” instead of “Cease and Nino.” He had trouble finishing the verse as Lil’ Kim quickly stepped in to carry the song. Soon after, the hiccup turned into a frenzy on social media as heavy backlash and memes were directed to RHQ.

A day after the incident, Rich Homie Quan took to Instagram to issue an apology.

nick-young-iggy-azalea

Iggy Azalea has nothing to hide. The “Fancy” rapper took to Twitter early Thursday morning (Jun. 30), revealing the cause of her break-up with NBA player and fiancé Nick Young. “I broke up with Nick because I found out he had brought other women into our home while I was away and caught them on the security footage,” said the Australian native on Twitter.

I have never even been told by nick that his baby mother is pregnant so if this is true I’m finding out via E news,” Iggy also said, referring to a report by E! News that Young got his ex-girlfriend Keonna Green four months pregnant with their now second child.

Together since 2011, the couple officially called it quits earlier this month, with Young’s infidelity being questioned after he was caught in a cheating scandal after video surfaced of the 31-year-old speaking about an encounter with another woman.

drake views

It’s been almost a full 24 since Drake’s long-awaited Views LP was released on iTunes, which is more than enough time for you to unequivocally decide whether the album is either “classic” or “trash” (just kidding). Early on, it’s clear Views is Aubrey Graham’s love letter to Toronto, a multi-seasonal, Take Care-sounding journey of hip-hop supremacy and romantic redemption. There are Rihanna and Future appearances, DMX and Mary J. Blige samples, and just enough corny lines thrown in for good measure (“got so many chains they call me Chaining Tatum”).

So, while we continue to let Views properly sink in before his next “arsenal of songs” inevitably take over the summer of ’16, here’s what the Internet has been saying about Drake’s new album so far.
