Kim Kardashian is slowly transforming from reality show star and entrepreneur to a bonafide lawyer. Although she hasn’t passed her bar yet, she’s getting some real-life experience for when she does. She helped release dozens inmates over the past few months and she continues to put in work to help release other wrongly accused inmates. However, she’s not only using her help for non-famous people but also for some her associates and friends including A$AP Rocky. After reports emerged claiming that she and Kanye reached out to Trumpito to aid in the situation, Kim confirmed the news on Twitter.

Kim Kardashian had a big thank you give out to Donald Trump as well as Jared Kushner and other government ficials who’ve been trying to help A$AP Rocky get released from prison in Sweden. Rocky’s been locked up for two weeks and tomorrow (July 19th), prosecutors in Sweden will have to make the decision whether they’ll law charges on the rapper.
“Thank you @realDonaldTrump, @SecPompeo, Jared Kushner & everyone involved with the efforts to Free ASAP Rocky & his two friends,” she wrote. “Your commitment to justice reform is so appreciated.”
It’s unsure what Trump’s commitment to justice reform is but apparently, Kim knows something we don’t. We’ll find out soon whether Rocky will remain in the custody Swedish ficials.
Blueface, the riddle wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in blue. Since his arrival onto the game, the f-beat wonder has won hearts and made enemies in seemingly equal measure. Driven by the unexpected smash hit “Thotiana,” which cemented him as a leading man unwilling to foot the bill, Blueface’s strangely comedic lines proved stubbornly endearing – perhaps against one’s own sense better judgment. Today, following a recent familial spat between himself, his mother, and his sister, Blueface took a break from juggling matching girlfriends to make some bold claims.

“That’s on my mom and my sis, I’m the best lyricist in the muthafu*kin’ game,” declares Blueface, invoking his kin. “I might not have the best flow, sound, I don’t know what the fu*k ya’ll be listening to when ya’ll be listening to this other bullshit, but when it come to wordplay??? Cuz. ‘I’m at the Ritz Carlton hotel blowing zips / This is a non-smoking room, but can’t no ho-tell me shit / cause bitch I’m the shit!’ Oh my fu*king goodness!”
In his defense, his cited line was kinda nice, was it not? Though he’ll probably alienate many looking to discredit his thesis on an immediate basis, perhaps Blueface’s lyrics deserve a second examination. Or perhaps Blueface is simply taking a moment for a spot mischief, given how easy it is to provoke fans into a discussion. What do you think? Is he outrapping his peers in any criteria whatsoever?
The hip-hop tycoon has listed his longtime home in Woodland Hills, Calif. for $5.25 million. According to the Los Angeles Times, the 16,200-square-foot French country-style manor sits on more than half an acre in the guard-gated community of Westchester County Estates.
Built in 1987 and extensively updated, the eight-bedroom, 13-bath estate has an expansive gated driveway, four-car garage, and two kitchens, plus a 250-bottle wine cellar, movie theater, and an elevator. The family room includes a custom 150-gallon fish tank, while the grand lanai features a wet bar and an indoor jacuzzi.
The landscaped grounds hold an Olympic-sized saltwater pool, patios, and fire pit. A flat-screen television is built into the sitting area near the pool.
The 54-year-old founder and chief executive of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics, who Forbesnamed the second wealthiest rapper with $800 million, bought the home in 1999 for $2.35 million.
He owns multiple properties in the Los Angeles area, including a Brentwood estate that he bought from Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen for $40 million in 2014. Last year, he purchased a Calabasas compound with a recording studio for $4.9 million. His real estate portfolio also includes a $4.7 Malibu mansion and a $2.25 million home in Pacific Palisades.

Google has suspended ticket resale company Viagogo from paid advertising in search results.
The ban is global and immediate, which could severely impact the company’s ability to function.
Viagogo has been facing extreme regulatory scrutiny in the UK, particularly from the Competition and Markets Authority. The ticketing group initially ignored repeated warnings to comply with consumer law, arguing that its business practices are legal.
Viagogo is based in Switzerland but sells thousands of tickets to UK live music, sport, and theater events.
British MPs encouraged consumers to boycott the ticket resale platform and even criticized Google for allowing Viagogo to buy ad space. The Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport select committee noted that Viagogo misleads consumers while urging greater action. Many consumers find the site by stumbling upon its ads from Google search results.
Viagogo has also faced accusations of when it resold tickets to a cancer charity benefit. These allegations were hefty enough that Google reviewed the issue. Now, the company announced that it found Viagogo in breach of its advertising policies and would begin removing its ads.
Viagogo often targets search results for artists and events, even those that have . Ed Sheeran publicly called out the company for its shady practices after fans were sold invalid tickets on the platform. Viagogo still appears in Google search results, but not in any paid advertising slots.
A Google spokesperson commented on the banning, saying:
“When people use our platform for help in purchasing tickets, we want to make sure that they have an experience they can trust. This is why we have strict policies and take necessary action when we find an advertiser in breach.”
An undercover investigation by The Guardian last year unearthed plenty of unsavory behavior, including outright bypassing of consumer laws. An open letter signed by the Football Association, several MPs, and the trade body UK Music urged Google to ban Viagogo from buying ads.
At this point, it feels odd to thrust each XXL Freshman into an acapella freestyle, even if their approach to music detes from the delivery straightforward bars. Yet tradition can be important, the cypher remains one XXL’s main attractions for their annual freshman classes. The acapella joints, however, let’s call them hit or miss. Especially when more melodic artists step to the plate, a detion from their expected comfort zone. Yet Lil Mosey does not balk at a challenge, and made sure to rise to the occasion with some dazed bars.
“Just need new money don’t need no new friends,” raps Mosey, “2016 turned 5 to a 10, hundred round gun shoot a n***a in his face now, pull up on a n***a and leave him face down.” He proceeds to whip into a smooth flow in his closing stanzas, ending on with an emphatic “gang” and a glimpse at his chosen timepiece. While he’s not likely to elicit a cry “BARS” from Funk Flex, Mosey acquaints himself nicely to the format, raising interest as to how he’ll perform once the cypher rolls around.
Check out his brief freestyle below, and sound f – are you enjoying this rollout Freshman Freestyles? Or is it time for XXL to retire the segment altogether?
The Last Poets are not only considered one of the greatest spoken-word artists in history but also a cornerstone in the early foundation of Hip Hop. This is why HipHopDX is proud to premiere a new video for group member Abiodun Oyewole’s song “New York, New York” from the upcoming Windows on the World soundtrack, which is scheduled to drop through Ropeadope Records.
The track was originally featured on The Last Poets’ 1970 self-titled album. “New York, New York” has also been sampled on songs such as Ice-T’s “NY NY” from his 7th Deadly Sin album and Niggaz Wit Hats’ “Guerrillas in the Midst” from the Fear of The Black Hat soundtrack.
According to the pioneering poet, the poem is still relevant in the era of Donald Trump’s presidency.
“It was really a revelation to hear and do the poem ‘New York, New York,’” Oyewole said. “I didn’t realize how relevant it was today. There are some outstanding poets around today, but Hip Hop is capturing the ears of our youth more so than poetry.”
He continued, “This is a very significant time in America. It is a very pivotal time where there will be a serious changing of the guards. Trump is the last bit of hope for the old guards. Poets and songwriters should be writing about the world we want to live in so we the people can make it happen.”
Starring Ryan Guzman and Edward James Olmos, Windows on the World tells the story of a Mexican son’s search for his missing, undocumented father working at the World Trade Center on 9/11. Though a release date hasn’t been announced for the film, Windows on the World is making the festival rounds.

Los Angeles, CA – Da Brat and Jermaine Dupri have developed a close-knit relationship over the past 27 years. After Kriss Kross introduced Brat to the So So Def label head in the early ’90s, she was signed to the imprint and the rest is history.
So it’s really no surprise Brat is defending Dupri’s controversial comment about “strippers rapping” — but she has her reasons.
TMZ caught the veteran Hip Hop artist at the Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday (July 16) and asked her what she thought about his statement.
“Anything Jermaine Dupri does is done strategically,” she said. “He knows what he’s doing. He’s a genius. You should be thankful that the conversation has even started on female rappers because now the focus is absolutely on us female rappers — new, seasoned, legends, all that. Everybody’s coming.”
Brat also made it clear Dupri’s statement was taken out of context. She says Dupri was asked if he prefers Nicki Minaj or Cardi B, but the question was edited out.
“Go back and look at the whole interview,” she insisted. “You didn’t hear the part where they asked him to choose between Nicki and Cardi.”
In terms of getting any more details, Brat refused to comment further.
“I said what I had to say,” she said. “I love Jermaine Dupri. He’s very smart at what he does. There’s always a method to his madness. His comment was taken out of context. But that’s ok, it’s a good thing. Now we talkin’ about everybody and it’s awesome. Everybody’s coming. It’s awesome. I love it. This conversation needed to be a had a long time ago.”
Durpi enraged former Bronx stripper-turned rap superstar Cardi with his People Magazine interview.
“They all rapping about the same thing,” he said. “I don’t think they’re showing us who is the best rapper. For me, it’s like strippers rapping. As far as rap goes, I’m not getting ‘who is the best rapper.’ I’m getting, like, you got a story about you dancing in the club, YOU got a story about you dancing in the club, you got a story…OK. Who’s gonna be the rapper?”
Cardi quickly fired back Instagram and defended her music.
“First of all, I rap about my pussy because she’s my best friend,” she said. “And second of all, it seems like that’s what people wanna hear.
“When I did ‘Be Careful,’ people was talking mad shit in the beginning, like, ‘What the fuck is this? This is not what I expected. I expected this, I expected that.’ So it’s like, if that’s what people ain’t tryna hear, then I’ma start rapping about my pussy again.”
Ever since Ayesha Curry spoke candidly about how she receives “zero male attention“ compared to the amount women throwing themselves at her husband, Steph, she has become a lightning rod for criticism in the social media landscape. From trolls labelling her an attention seeker and telling her to “stay in the kitchen,” to fans making lewd comments on live TV, everything Ayesha does is receiving more attention that ever before.
The most recent example: A video Ayesha playfully hitting the Milly Rock for Steph. As soon as the video was posted, both trolls and Ayesha’s supporters swarmed to twitter to share their opinion.
For instance, one commenter posted: “she really milly rock like missionary her favorite position.” Another responded, “y’all worried about Ayesha Curry milly Rock and she opening her 4th restaurant owns a wine company and banking with the cookware.”

Drake is facing legal action from a woman who claims that she sustained a brain injury after a beer bottle was hurled at her head during his concert.
Amanda Giovacco, a 24-year-old Staten Island woman, has filed a lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court, stemming from the incident, which occurred on Aug. 8, 2016. In her suit, she alleges that Madison Square Garden, Live Nation, a food vendor, and Drake were negligent in allowing a crowd to get raucous enough that someone would toss a glass bottle at her head.
“Amanda Giovacco, was violently struck by a beer bottle that was thrown while attending the Drake concert, was maliciously and without just cause provocation, subjected to a battery,” read the court papers, obtained by Page Six.
She claims that the defendants didn’t have adequate security at the venue and negligently served “excessive amounts of alcohol” to concertgoers in glass bottles instead of plastic cups. The court documents also allege that the defendants failed to control the “rowdy” crowd and that “Drake has a history of violence at his concerts.”
Giovacco claims that she “sustained a traumatic brain injury and seizures,” both of which are, “preventing her from attending medical school.”
Her lawyer, Joseph Napoli, said, “Madison Square Garden, the promoter and Drake should have prevented bottles from coming in or circulating within the building and being thrown at a concert.”
Rick Ross has announced a release date for his 10th album Port of Miami 2. The long-awaited sequel to his debut arrives on Aug. 9, 13 years after the original Port of Miami.
He has also revealed the cover, which pays homage to the 2006 artwork and finds Ross holding a pendant featuring a photo of his late friend and manager Black Bo, who passed away in 2017.
In the dramatic trailer, Rozay is baptized in water. “I sat in a room alone, no television, no music, I just listened to my heart beat,” he says. “Are you just standing there or does your heart beat? Was you meant to die? Did you want to live or was you born to kill? Listen to my heart beat.”
So far, Port of Miami 2 has spawned the Swizz Beatz-assisted single “BIG TYME” and “Act a Fool” featuring Wale.
“Port of Miami started me on this journey,” said the MMG boss. “It’s only right I bring it back to where it all started. For my day ones to the new ones, this album is for you. Tenth studio album. Get ready. Ride with me. It’s time.”

Kawhi Leonard was one the biggest free agents on the market during the NBA fseason and in the end, he signed a three-year, $103 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers. The deal comes with a player option in the third year which means the two-time NBA champion has all the leverage moving forward. With Leonard and Paul George on the roster, the Clippers are in prime position to go deep in the playfs this season. While this may be true, there are still some people around the league who have a bad taste in their mouth over the way he left the San Antonio Spurs.
In a recent article by Ric Bucher Bleacher Report, an anonymous general manager had some harsh criticism Leonard. “Kawhi is great getting his, but he doesn’t elevate anyone,” they said. “He doesn’t rally his team.”
Other executives around the league were more complimentary Leonard although they did admit that he isn’t the vocal leader that other players have proven themselves to be. “He does have leadership qualities,” one executive said.“It depends on how you define ‘leader.’ He’s obviously not vocal, and he’s not a galvanizer. He does it with his work ethic and by example.”
Regardless how you feel about Leonard, there is no denying he is a great talent that can turn any team into a contender. It would be interesting to know which GM said this as it would probably give some context as to why this person has that opinion.
