Sigh


lil wayne 2015

Bad news for Young Money fans: Lil Wayne and Birdman have yet to kiss and make up. Rolling Stone got on the phone with Weezy last week to talk about his bombshell of a $51 million lawsuit against his long-time label, and while the rapper remained understandably tightlipped about the whole thing (“That’s a legal matter, homeboy”), he did say that he and Birdman are no longer speaking.

Drake-Diddy-Revolt

What is it about club LIV in Miami that brings out the worst in people? Something aggro in the air at the legendary romper room of cut-out lycra dresses, white slacks, and indoor sunglasses…we’ve heard of fights involving Lebron’s mom, Teyana Taylor, and more. But on Sunday night, the massive Miami club was packed for DJ Khaled’s birthday party, and according to the rumor mill, Drake and Diddy had a physical altercation. This comes during the same weekend where Drake was accused by Chris Brown of having an affair with his now-ex-girlfriend Karrueche while he was in prison. (Drake sources seem to have planted a denial via TMZ)

Here’s what we know vs. what is being speculated…

beanie sigel shot

Absolutely terrible news. According to local New Jersey news reports, Beanie Sigel was shot this morning in the Jersey Shore suburb of Pleasantville. Press of Atlantic City reports he was shot in the torso and is being treated at the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.

Beanie was just released from prison in August, after serving two years on tax evasion. And since then he’s been confined to Philadelphia, staying at a halfway house. Not sure whether he had clearance to travel outside the state to NJ when he was shot.
This is a disturbing turn of events when things were just starting to look up. A few weeks ago Beanie sounded sharp on his first post-prison lyrical appearance with Young Chris.

Sigh. We’ll keep you updated.

Janay Rice, wife of Ray Rice, on Today Show with Matt Lauer
(Ray Rice’s wife Janay Rice, along with her um…very youthful looking mother, speaking about the ‘elevator incident’ to The Today Show‘s Matt Lauer.)

Is it possible that a man can love a woman and be a “good person” (whatever that means in 2014) and still knock her unconscious, drag her body like rolled up rug, and look at her, half-in half-out of an elevator, with drunken blankness? Perhaps. Anything is possible. But only time will tell (and it may never tell us, the public) if this is the case for controversial football star Ray Rice and his wife Janay. Ray won an appeal when a judge reversed the NFL’s indefinite suspension last week, so he is available for hire. Janay sat down with The Today Show to share her side of what happened in that Atlantic City elevator last spring, and why she not only went on to marry the man who punched her, but also stand by his side as the media, the public and the Baltimore Ravens (temporarily and for everyone’s own devices) made an example of Ray Rice.

Watch Janay and her mom,

snoop dogg iggy azalea beef

You’ve probably caught wind of the pathetic and pointless beef between Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea that’s been taking place on social media this week. It all started when Snoop, who dedicates his Instagram to recycling funnies from around the ‘net, posted an “Iggy Azalea No Make Up” meme, which didn’t sit too kindly with the Australian rapper (I mean, which girl would see the funny side of being called ugly?)

Hit the jump for the full breakdown…
