50 Cent continues to antagonize Young Buck over the Nashville-bred artist’s alleged transsexual relationship. Now, a full-fledged beef has emerged after the G-Unit leader taunted his own artist Instagram on Wednesday (April 24).

“Young buck is almost ready to drop his album,” 50 wrote. “He worked hard on this project, I told him his personal choice to date a tran sexual will confuse some of his core audience but with the support of the LGBT he should be fine. New heat coming soon.”

#50Cent on #YoungBuck 👀😩

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

Buck jumped on Instagram Live and slammed his longtime collaborator in response.

“I thought you was 50 Cent,” he said. “I’ve been around you for a long time. I thought you had some real nigga tendencies, homie. I’m a phone call away or a face-to-face meeting away with anything. Nigga, you a real-life sucka trying to manipulate the fans’ minds and play with these people. Telling these people all these ol’ fake ass, false ass lies and shit.”

He also claimed 50 is sabotaging his career behind the scenes. The veteran rapper suggested they should settle their dispute in a rap battle.

“I’m trying to fulfill whatever was there to keep it moving,” Buck said. “You’re trying to sabotage me, pull my music down, send cease and desists everywhere, put up little posts and jokes for laughs while you do weak ass shit behind my back and try to keep me tied to a contract. If you such a real nigga, why don’t you let me go? You understand? And we’ll fight the battle like that. Whatchu scared for, sucka? Line me up like Ja Rule, nigga. Go bar-for-bar with me, nigga. Play that game. You scared? You wanna do sucka shit. You ain’t gonna get away from me though.”

He continued, “All ya little gay games you playing and all that ol’ sucka ass shit you doing around here on social media, this shit don’t work, homie. You understand what I’m saying? Get the fuck out of here. Nigga, you ain’t had a hit—you ain’t even been involved in music. I dare you to pick up a mic and come this way. Nigga, I’ma slice yo ass up … I’ma get away from yo bitch ass and get up out this contract, then I’ma serve you.”

Buck wrapped up his rant by reiterating his challenge and taking a few more shots at 50.

“We gonna see who Ja Rule who, bitch,” he declared. “I’m talking ’bout pick up a microphone, sucka. Fuck all this social media game … You know I’m your partner. I know what’s going on. You know I know you don’t even be running your social media accounts and shit. You dig what I’m saying? You know I know what’s going on. Let’s keep it 100. I’m talking about real raw, pick up a microphone. This is the essence of Hip Hop, nigga. I’ma slice yo ass, nigga … You’re a better comedian than you are a rapper or an actor, nigga. And Power ain’t shit no more. We don’t even watch that shit no more.”

He concluded, “You have these folks thinking a nigga out here with a fucking transsexual. Why you doing shit like this? Man, we looking at you laughing at you, homie. And then you wanna hold me on a contract. You serious? You gonna tell ’em everything, tell ’em the truth. Tell ’em what you really doing. Tell ’em ’bout them cease and desists you sending out. You’re trying to pull my music down. Let’s be real. Let’s speak factual shit. Let’s not try to hide it away from the fans, throw rocks and hide your hands. You know you’re good at throwing rocks and hiding your hands. Don’t forget, nigga, I know you now. Don’t forget I can play your game too.”

“For many folks, the ending ( the Smollett case), the way it went, we’ll talk about it and learn from that,” Kim told the Chicago Tribune. “I don’t think it’s unreasonable to question … if you think there’s two levels justice.”

Kim detailed to the publicaiton how it’s been hard to explain to her children what’s the truth and what’s a lie considering her children are on social media. “They’re social-media creatures, and this thing is crazy,” she explained.

“The hardest part has been sitting with my daughters and dispelling rumors. … It’s like where’s the responsibility? So it’s been hard for them, harder for them than for me. Do not feel bad for me. I signed up for this. But we have to have a responsibility for truth, always.”

Should you be interested in hearing the ficial version “Algorythm,” all you need to do is download the App and partake accordingly. It’s not entirely dissimilar to Radiohead’s “Polyfauna,” which launched back in 2014. With “Pharos,” users will find themselves staring at a 3D world, where they can trigger aural phenomena by pointing their screen at neon symbols. Eventually, you’ll be able to build the full song, which may prove too large an ask for the impatient folk. 

How do you feel about experimental releases such as this? Are you feeling it, or are you simply hear for the streaming? 

Lil Nas X On "Old Town Road" Critiques: "I Do Not Give A F*ck What Dave East Is Saying"

When you’re the owner the number one song in the country, you can justifiably go on your merry way without caring about anybody’s critique. There are clearly a large number people messing with your song so if a few people don’t like it, you can just brush it f. That’s the mentality that Lil Nas X has right now. His hit single “Old Town Road” has been a surprising success, helping the previously-unknown artist reach the top the Billboard chart and finally dethroning the ever-popular NBA YoungBoy on the YouTube streaming charts. When Dave East said he thinks “Old Town Road” is “wack,” LNX took that in one ear and it went right out the other. Why you ask? Because he’s got the number one song in the country.

During an interview on the Zach Sang Show, Lil Nas X spoke about the criticism he’s faced for his country-laced banger, brushing it all f. When asked about the Dave East situation, Nas X told the hosts that he doesn’t even care at this point. “I honestly have gotten this question so many times, it’s like, I have the No. 1 song in the country,” explained the artist. “I do not give a fuck about what Dave East is saying.”

His comments could easily be misinterpreted as a diss but it feels like he means no ill will towards the New York spitter. Lil Nas X is just doing his thing and obviously, there are more folks that like the track than dislike it so he’s doing something right.

Dee Barnes Didn’t "Confirm Nor Deny" Dr. Dre Sexual Assault Question From Wendy Williams

New York, NY – Dee Barnes sat down with Wendy Williams on Thursday (April 18) for an episode of The Wendy Williams Show to discuss her housing plight, the derailing of her Hip Hop journalism career and what exactly happened the night Dr. Dre viciously attacked her at a Hollywood industry party in 1991.

During their conversation, Williams pressed the former Pump It Up! host for all the sordid details.

“I run into the women’s restroom,” she explained around the 9:45-minute mark. “He follows me into the women’s restroom.”

Williams asked what happened in the restroom, but Barnes pumped the brakes when asked if she was sexually assaulted. Barnes became temporarily frozen with emotion and couldn’t immediately respond. The empathetic host urged her to “tell your story.”

Barnes went on, “He continued to assault me in the women’s restroom.” Williams injected with, “Did he sexually assault you?” but Barnes replied, “I’m not comfortable talking about everything right now” with tears in her eyes.

Although Barnes’ silence spoke volumes (as Williams also pointed out), she didn’t exactly affirm a sexual assault occurred.

“I did not confirm nor deny,” she tells HipHopDX. “The book will explain.”

Barnes has been working on a book about her life tentatively titled Music, Myth and Misogyny: Memoirs Of A Female MC.  Toward the end of Barnes’ segment, Williams offered to publish her book as well as help make a movie about her story.

She also threw in another $15,000 along with Hotels.com to help her out of her precarious situation.

Barnes credited the DX story on her GoFundMe page and The Wendy Williams Show for getting the word out. The music community and beyond truly rose to the occasion and took her campaign from roughly $3,000 to over $30,000 in a matter of a few days.

Chuck D, actress Ellen Barkin, comedian Sinbad, actor Jon Cryer and Ferrari Sheppard were just a few of those rallying around Barnes. The story was picked up by numerous publications — from People Magazine to Essence — and celebrities such as Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, Mike D’s wife Tamra Davis, Green Book actor Mahershala Ali and MC Serch donated to the cause.

Check out some of the reactions below.

Chicago, IL – Rising Chicago rapper King Von is searching for revenge in the music video for his latest slap “Cousins” featuring JusBlow600.

As the old adage goes: “It be your own people.”

“Cousins” is the follow-up to the Drill spitter’s storytelling breakout track “Crazy Story,” which currently possesses over 25 million YouTube plays.

Back in March, Von and Durk spoke with incarcerated “Murder On My Mind” rapper YNW Melly and gave him some words of encouragement back, assuring him that he’ll be out soon. The interaction between Melly and the two OTF members livestreamed on Instagram Live.

You read that right, folks. According to Variety, Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj will be heading on tour together later this year. The two just linked up with G-Eazy on “Wobble Up” and they may have more planned because, while an exact schedule has not yet been shared, one tour date in New Jersey popped up for September 13 at the Prudential Center. It’s currently unclear whether the two will be co-headlining or if Minaj is a support act for Brown. The way it’s being listed on the Prudential website makes it seem like the latter is more likely, but we wouldn’t expect Nicki Minaj to be okay with taking second billing. After all, they’ve both enjoyed long, successful careers.

This news comes just a day after Nicki decided to part ways with her longtime managers, entering a new stage in her pressional career. Will you be shelling out some cash to witness both these tremendous artists on tour?

Pelicans Believe Anthony Davis Is Open To Staying In New Orleans

Anthony Davis and his precious unibrow dominated NBA conversation for about a month during his trade request fiasco. Davis made it clear to the franchise that he didn’t want to play for them anymore and that he wished to be traded. Many believed the Lakers were the prime destination for Davis although the Pelicans refused to do a deal. At the last game the season, Davis was a healthy scratch and wore a “That’s All Folks” shirt, pretty well-teasing everyone that that was his last game with the Pelicans.

Well, it seems as though there is a chance Davis could be back with the Pelicans after all. Newly appointed president basketball operations for the Pelicans, David Griffin, said Anthony Davis is actually open to staying with the team, according to The Athletic’s Will Guillory. This is pretty shocking news considering where the two were just a little while ago. 

Griffin explained that he spoke to Davis’ agent Rich Paul and said AD has to be “all in” if he wants the Pelicans to keep him. If not, there is a strong chance he’ll be dealt.

For now, though, there is some optimism within the Pelicans organization although it remains to be seen how long that will last.

Kim Kardashian Responds To "Stay In Your Lane" Shade Surrounding Lawyer Ambitions

Kim Kardashian‘s lobbying efforts surrounding prison reform sparked much chatter these past few years. Her sit-down with 45th US president Donald Trump was step one to granting freedom clemency to former inmates Alice Marie Johnson, Matthew Charles and viral case, Cyntoia Brown. Her success in such endeavours even got folks calling Ms. Kardashian West the “Prison Reform Princess.”

In an interview with Extra, Kanye West applauded his wife’s good deeds and was first to announce Kim was going to law school. Though the statement was then considered another one Kanye’s verbal faux pas, Kim Kardashian later confirmed its validity. Today, in an uplifting Instagram post, the reality TV star explained how her deep involvement in criminal justice reform has inspired her to pursue a legal career. In the thick previous allegations surrounding her new goal, Kim faced harsh clap back from the public. While nay-sayers urged Kim to “stay in her lane,” others accused her using fame and financial privilege to by-pass the regular Juris Doctor acquisition process. 

“I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.” I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit your dreams, and the accomplishment new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn’t care who you are. This option is available to anyone who’s state allows it.”

Furthermore, the mother three insisted on letting the world know she meant serious business and remained adamant about earning her stripes the regular way.

“My weekends are spent away from my kids while I read and study. I work all day, put my kids to bed and spend my nights studying. There are times I feel overwhelmed and when I feel like I can’t do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me.”

It is important to consider Kim’s track record does show a commitment to fight for the underprivileged and socially disadvantaged, populations which may solely benefit from additional support. Hence, we can only wish Kim K. best luck.
