Luckily, the diplomatic prowess Ant The Ladies Man came through to mediate the situation, and 50 made sure to bring the “Bow Wow Wars” to an amicable end. “So I just got f the phone with my man Ant,” begins 50, in a state the union sorts. “He called me telling me Bow Wow reached out and actually gave him the money, so we cool and shit. But I was about to do something to that n***a. That n***a stole my motherfuckin’ money. You know what I mean? You throw the money for the dancers and shit, and this n***a picking the money up and taking it home with him?” At this moment, 50’s face falls, his disappointment in Bow Wow’s strip club etiquette evident. Still, he’s taken it upon himself to exercise forgiveness, and continues declaring the armistice.
“Now that I’ve got my money, I’m wishing Bow Wow peace, happiness, all the blessings that can come to him,” says 50, with a laugh. “But ya’ll leave him alone! He feeling all kind pressure. Motherfuckers on his page like ‘you owe 50 money motherfucker! You better pay!'” He proceeds to act out Bow Wow’s flustered demeanor, a brief glimmer character acting chops once displayed in “Things Fall Apart.”
We previously reported on Blac Chyna’s new reality television show, The Real Blac Chyna, which is scheduled to air on Zeus next month. From the mini preview we’ve gotten thus far which was shared by Chyna, we knew to expect a drama-filled season. The show has not even aired yet and the drama involved is already pouring f the screen. Rob Kardashian, who shares a daughter with Chyna by the name Dream, filed paperwork to prohibit his baby mother from putting their daughter on the show. A threatening letter was sent to Chyna and hinted that the former couple’s 50/50 joint custody would not allow their daughter on camera without Rob’s consent. Blac clapped back immediately by calling Rob a hypocrite as she did not say anything when Rob allowed Dream on an episode Keeping Up With The Kardashians without her approval. She alleges the sneaky move was done in a “desperate attempt to boost the dismal ratings for their stale and contrived show.”
While the two are still working out this issue, a super trailer for the upcoming series has dropped and it’s looking real spicy. Clearly, Tokyo Toni will play an essential role in the series considering her ever-so persistent animosity with Blac Chyna. We also get a glimpse Blac Chyna’s reaction to the Harvard scandal and more. Check the trailer below.
The boxer took to social media to call out 50 Cent for blocking him on Instagram, telling him that he might need to borrow a million dollars soon. When news got back to Fiddy though, he was not impressed. “Fuck you AB, we still mad about that money you made us lose on the fight,” joked Curtis on his own page, rubbing in the loss. “Yeah I blocked your ass because you fucking up the money.”
Commenting on his own post, Fif added some more, thinking it’s about time he gives Broner an ultimatum. “IM STARTING TO FEEL LIKE YOU OWE ME AB. So have something for me by Monday,” he wrote.
Uh oh. You better pay up AB because when it comes to 50 Cent’s wrath, you don’t want to be on the wrong side. Broner does pack a powerful punch though…
We’ve been actively reporting on the numbers tied to the recent installment to the X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix. And from the beginning its roll-out in theatres, it has been doing poorly. To begin, the disappointing box fice number related to Dark Phoenix’s debut meant the movie had the worst opening in the franchise’s history with a meager $14 million dollars nationwide and $33 million over the weekend. Moreover, the L’s continued being taken upon the movie’s second week wherein sales plummeted by 83%, only bringing in $2.438 million dollars during its second week. Many have blamed the movie’s underperformance as a result “franchise fatigue,” something Men In Black: International slightly experienced but not as badly. Moreover, the director behind the movie has now spoken and is taking full responsibility for the movie doing so badly.
According to People, Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg took blame during an interview with The Business Podcast: “This weekend for me was certainly more disappointing then I’d anticipated, but I was anticipating or bracing for a tough weekend. I’d always felt like we had a tough date for this particular movie.” In addition, Kinberg adds thatAvengers: Endgame’s huge success did not help, “Coming out 5-6 weeks after what will be the biggest, or second biggest movie in the history cinema that happens to also be in the genre superheroes was tough for us. But I wouldn’t blame it on the weekend, like it clearly is a movie that didn’t connect. That’s on me.”
The streaming era has made many artists, including some your faves, to dilute the quality the project by inflating the number songs that are included on the tracklist. Drake, for example, gave fans a 25-track double disc project with Scorpion. MigosCulture II included 24 songs that ran for nearly two hours. But before them, Chris Brown’s Heartbreak On A Full Moon included a tracklist that was the nearly length the two projects combined. Breezy confirmed that his new album, Indigo will also be a lengthy effort, except not as long with Heartbreak that held 45 tracks in total.
Keeping to his promise, Breezy’s new project, INDIGO will consist 30 songs as well as three bonus tracks. The album includes the features that he previously mentioned.

A visual for the song is set to drop soon and we’re sure that it’ll hit the #1 spot on the chart.

Not long after Griselda’s own Benny The Butcher revealed the release date for his upcoming The Plugs I Met, Westside Gunn came forward to detail his own upcoming endeavor. Yesterday, the entrepreneurial emcee shared the news that his FLYGOD IS AN AWESOME GOD album will be arriving on July 5th, though he’s opting to keep additional information close to the chest. One might be inclined to guess that Conway, Benny, and Daringer will be gracing the album, though given Westside’s extensive network, the sky is the limit.
The project marks his first full-length album since last year’s Supreme Blientele,a gritty serving Buffalo hip-hop styled after Ghostface’s classic a similar title. We can only assume that FLYGOD IS AN AWESOME GOD will bring forth more the same classic Gunn sound. Given that Griselda is ficially part the Shady Records family, perhaps we can expect Em and his camp to shine an additional spotlight on Westside’s upcoming effort; though a feature is unlikely, one has to wonder how Shady will factor into the movements moving forward. Perhaps we’ll soon find out.

Run The Jewels — the motley Hip Hop duo of Killer Mike and El-P — has been working on their next album for years. On Monday morning (June 17), it looked like fans finally had a release date for Run The Jewels 4, their aptly titled follow-up to 2016’s Run The Jewels 3.
After posting a photo of two hands clinking pint glasses emblazoned with the RTJ logo, the post quickly and mysteriously disappeared. But, those who were paying attention saw a release date in the caption that read, “9.7.19.”
The same image was later shared to their Instagram Story — minus the caption.
Mike and El Producto have been dropping hints the album is close to being unveiled to the public. Late last month, they posted a photo of themselves with producer extraordinaire Rick Rubin and revealed they’d spent the past week at his Malibu recording studio wrapping things up.
Last December, El-P teased a 2019 release date, but didn’t elaborate . Now, it looks like Run The Jewels 4 could arrive on September 7. It’s yet to be determined why the post was removed. We’ll just have to wait and see.

“This collective victory would not have happened had we not stood united in the face cultural normalization, one the most dangerous tools used to penetrate our society.”
So far, Bhad is still set to hit the stage in Tel Aviv and has yet to respond to the cancellation.

Young Thug is an enigma. Though he has yet to truly establish himself among the Billboard Elite, the man called Jeffery has won hearts time and time again. With stellar features, a respectable discography, and his best charting single to date in “The London,” Thug remains an unpredictable wild card in an occasionally predictable game; you’ll rarely find him at the top the charts, but he’ll occupy a few top tier spots on many a year-end roundup list. Still, he’s not without surprises. Today, the Slime King found himself on the receiving end his first Diamond Plaque.

It’s been a quiet, but certainly effective run for Rick Ross. Though his releases have been infrequent, his verses on Meek Mill‘s “What’s Free,” Denzel Curry‘s “Birdz,” Jim Jones‘ “State Of the Union” and Drake‘s “Money In The Grave” have been among his best in recent memory. In fact, it’s safe to say that Renzel has been focused and lyrically sharp, to the point where Port Of Miami 2 is one the year’s most anticipated drops. And while some feel sequels are seldom capable surpassing the original, Ross’ triumphant run speaks to a man ready and willing to be the exception.

Though we have yet to receive a single since he came through with “Florida Boy” and “Green Gucci Suit” back in 2017, Ross has once again kicked f the Port Of Miami 2 hype with an imposing IG post. His caption speaks to a coming storm, the likes which only “the Boss” can conjure. “Time to open the flood gates,” he captions, prompting hyped responses from both Timbland and Charlamagne Tha God.
As now, Port Of Miami 2 has yet to land a release date. Yet this latest post makes it clear that Ross is gearing up, and the time couldn’t be better. We could really use a new album from Rick Ross, could we not?
