A contributor the publication reported that Budden can be performing within the upcoming BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher, the place he can be launched by Eminem, all folks. On paper, such an concept was hardly far-fetched. Yet the web site has since issued a retraction, claiming that Budden is not going to, the truth is, be contributing to the cypher. Seeing as we reported on their story, we too bear some accountability in spreading the narrative; for that, we apologize.
Apparently, Budden’s administration knowledgeable The Source that their contributor had it mistaken, which leads us to marvel how such a mix-up might need occurred within the first place. Perhaps the contributor merely mixed-up Joe Budden with one other rapper, and Eminem for, say, G-Eazy or one thing. Perhaps Budden’s involvement is certainly factual, and administration is solely protecting bases to make sure a shock. Perhaps The Source’s unique report was fictitious from the leap.

HipHopDX then counter-sued with a defamation suit against the rapper for allegedly tarnishing their reputation by dubbing them “fake news.” However, a new reports indicates they’ve partially settled in their legal battle.

He added, “We have not agreed to resolve the counter-claim filed against him at this time. We plan to aggressively litigate that matter, as we believe it is frivolous and an unfounded attempt to abridge Mr. Jackson’s First Amendment right free speech.”
After HipHopDX filed the counter-suit, 50 said the website was threatening his right to freedom speech.

YBN Nahmir got a little bored earlier and decided to make a quick Google search for his own net worth. While he can easily go on his banking app or open up the safe so he can get counting, Nahmir wanted to make sure the people knew just how much he’s earned over the last year. His rise happened very quickly and, unlike most other rappers, he brought his boys with him as the YBN crew is mostly just members his Xbox Live hangout. With Almighty Jay and Cordae doing their thing, the collective is inherently different stylistically but Nahmir has been out for the longest and has had more time to pad his pockets. With Google sharing inaccurate information about him, he wanted to make sure everybody knew just how rich he actually is.
While he did not specify exactly how much money he’s earned since he started releasing music, Nahmir likely has way more than $50K at this point his career. When he saw that was the number Google was throwing out when people searched for his net worth, he had to make a post about it. He wrote, “y’all ever gone update this?,” tagging the search engine in the process in his attempt to get them to reflect his actual earnings.
Nahmir isn’t the only person frustrated about what Google says they have made in their career as Lil Pump recently took a similar approach, saying that the corporation got him “fucked up.” Who knows what Nahmir has actually made in his life but if we’re being realistic, it’s way more than $50K.
50 Cent’s legal troubles continue to grow by the day. A little over a month a go, the rapper sued hip hop publication HipHopDX for publishing his photo without proper consent. In addition, Fif accused the website publishing “fake news” on him, although the publication contested these claims. Now, HipHopDX has filed a defamation lawsuit against 50 Cent for allegedly trying to sabotage their brand through social media posts.
The Blast reports that 50 Cent has been hit with a defamation lawsuit from HipHopDX for branding them “fake news” and attempting to sabotage their reputation and credibility. The website said in court documents that they’ve reported on 50 Cent truthfully. However, 50 Cent’s attack on them social media after telling his millions followers the website was spreading lies and labeled them “as a bogus news outlet that does not check its facts.”
“The celebrity known as 50 Cent has maliciously used his power and influence to falsely attack a small, independent media company for its unfavorable but entirely truthful content,” the lawsuit claims. “In late June 2018, it exposed as false certain public statements made by 50 Cent claiming to have sold the rights to a three-word catchphrase for a million dollars.”
They added, “False attacks by celebrities and public figures on journalists and media companies, branding them as ‘fake news,’ have become a powerful weapon for pulling readers away from otherwise respected sources. These are not merely political or public relations issues for media companies. Rather, they are attacks on a business and constitute classic defamation – false assertions to the public that are intended to, and do, damage a person or company in their pressional reputation.”
While 50 Cent initially sued the company for copyright infringement over a photo they used, the company argued that Fif didn’t own the rights to the photo but instead “allegedly obtained the rights to for the sole purpose bringing this lawsuit.”
The website denies all allegations in Fif’s lawsuit against them. They’re demanding $3M in damages.
The Game and his manager, Wack 100, have had serious issues with Tekashi 6ix9ine in the past. Their beef earlier this year was highly publicized as Tr3yway and Wack 100 traded shots in a battle the managers. When Tekashi showed up for his court appearance in Texas earlier this week, many outlets were publishing stories about the fact. Hip Hop Overload was one them, writing a headline that Wack 100 had clowned 6ix9ine for hiring security to defend himself from J Prince and his goons. While the story was partly factual, Wack 100 never mentioned J Prince’s name or even the rapper’s Houston location. He simply made a post on Instagram about his security and how 69 is “very safe now.” Noticing the publication had butchered his quote, Wack 100 stepped in and called them out, correcting them and clarifying his comments.
Noting that by spreading fake news, the website is “trying to bring unnecessary violence to the culture,” Wack cleared up what was said in the original post. Attacking Hip Hop Overload, he wrote, “YOU PUNK B-TCH MUTHAFUCKAS WILL BE THE REASON WHY INNOCENT PEOPLE GET HURT. IF YOUR GOING TO REPORT SOMETHING REPORT IT IN THE CORRECT MANNER.” As he did not say anything about 6ix9ine being scared anybody or mention the city he was in, he specified that he was not entirely apologizing to Tekashi but that he was sick the media spewing nonsense out his words.
In fact, he only made the “safe” comment since he sometimes uses the same security team for his family. This is the furthest thing from a truce but it looks like Wack 100 is starting to understand 6ix9ine’s motives a little more.
It turns out maybe Nicki Minaj didn’t buy a pricey gift for Cardi B after hearing that she had given birth. First all, congratulations to Offset and Cardi B on welcoming Kulture into the world. The baby’s name has been critiqued by some and admired by others but everybody is happy that the baby is healthy. Until a few moments ago, it was reported that Nicki Minaj had extended an olive branch to Cardi, somewhat unusual considering their questionable history, gifting the rapper with a $5K gift basket for baby Kulture. While the gesture would have been absolutely commendable, it turns out it was fake news.
According to TMZ, Cardi saw the reports and decided to have her team call up Petit Trésor, the shop the basket was reportedly purchased at, to get the tracking information. With there only being one location in West Hollywood, Bardi’s team came to the realization that Nicki never actually bought the gift. It’s been getting difficult to keep track what she’s received since she’s gotten tons presents after giving birth. The store’s owner gave them the unfortunate news that Nicki had not purchased anything from the shop.
With the two having had a mild beef earlier in the year, it was surprising, and great to hear that Nicki was trying to amend their relationship. However, it looks as though there’s still some bad blood.
Weezy F Baby and the F is for… False Alarm. After fans were going crazy with speculation that the release Tha Carter V could be imminent because a billboard that popped up to promote the project, all our hopes were quickly shut down. A viral post on Twitter showed what appeared to be a billboard set up by Lil Wayne and his team to build anticipation for the fifth installment in his Carter series. While it’s likely arriving before the end the year since he’s no longer being held back by Cash Money, the album’s promotional campaign has not yet started, unfortunately.
Tunechi fans jumped out their seats when they saw the billboard online, which read, “The F is for Five” with the V emphasized as a roman numeral. Although it appeared to be legit, one internet user was quick to point out that they had already seen the exact background from the image being circulated. The Los Angeles billboard actually dates from 2016 from a Postmates advertising campaign, which obviously has nothing to with Lil Wayne. Somebody simply decided to get slick with Photoshop and fool us all into thinking Carter V was coming soon. Although the project may still arrive in the coming weeks or months, its promotion has not begun.
The rapper’s team has not commented on the false advertisements as yet. Weezy recently told fans that he had a meeting about the potential release date for Tha Carter V. Whether or not he goes all out with billboards, the album is still very likely going to be one the highest-selling ones the year.
Just because you’re famous, it doesn’t mean your intellectual property automatically becomes public domain. 50 Cent is reserving his right to sue HipHopDX for publishing a photo him without his consent. The photo in question shows 50 Cent posing with Bellator MMA executives. The staged photograph obviously hit 50 close to home, because he certainly felt he should be breaking the news first, whatever it is they were negotiating in the boardroom.
The court documents also accuse HipHopDX publishing fake news, in an article that falsely claims the rapper/mogul sold his “Get the Strap” catchphrase to the MMA promotion for a cool $1 million. The pictures HipHopDX had no right to publish has since been legally claimed by TMZ and is available for viewing on their website.
The same day the dubious article surfaced, 50 Cent jumped on social media posting, “This s**t is fake news Justin Ivey (the writer), you better go fact check. Matter fact I’m gonna sue you and this website for using my picture.” It appears Curtis more than backed up his claim. The scourge that is “fake news” continues to be a thorn in the side good journalists, who so ten get lumped together with speculative pieces such as the one 50 Cent is fighting tooth and nail to expose.
Get the Strap!
