Lil Kim "Beyond Upset" Her Album Release Has Been Pushed Back

Instagram – Lil Kim announced her first studio album in 14 years was on its way last month. However, according to a recent Instagram Story, the release date has been pushed back.

The project — titled 9 — was originally expected to arrive on May 17, but Kim says due to label issues, there’s no telling when it will drop.

“EOne has pushed back the date of my album y’all if you have an issue take it up with them,” Kim wrote on her Instagram Story. “This has nothing to do with me. I am beyond upset with this and couldn’t wait to show you all what I’ve been working on.”

Kim added she was also frustrated with Spotify.

“Also Spotify is hating on me,” she continued. “I can’t understand why after all of the favors I’ve done for them. Direct all of your energy towards them too.”

Kim’s official studio album, The Naked Truth, hit the shelves in 2005, although she’s continued to drop mixtapes over the last 10 years. Lil Kim Season arrived in 2016. Her most recent single, “Go Awff,” made the rounds in February.

While fans await 9, Kim is whetting their appetites with another new single titled “No Auto Blanco.”

Halle Berry decided to come through with the ultimate thirst-trap her Instagram account. The Academy Award recipient fered fans a glimpse into her #SundaySelfCare routine by sharing a photo herself in a bathtub. Herein, the 52-year old actress looks right at us with a playful grin as she evidently enjoys relaxing in her foamy-bubble bath. She even holds onto a few bubbles as though we’re not the ones currently melting. The picture is tied to the following caption: “It’s been a really long day, but still making time for #SelfCareSunday with my bubble bath.” What does your #SelfCareSunday routine look like and most importantly, does it look as good as Halle Berry’s?

Last week, the actress gifted us with another thirst trap through her Snapchat account. In the latter, the “Monster’s Ball” star laid bare and comfortable with a jean jacket and nothing underneath. Leave it up to Halle to have everyone’s curiosity piquing like so. This is the second thirst trap in the span a week, hence fans may want to stay glued to her socials for more. Who knows? Maybe she’s on a streak these days. Either way, we are not ones to complain. 

Tyga Reportedly Drops $10M Lawsuit Against Birdman & Cash Money Records

Los Angeles, CA – Tyga put an end to his legal battle with Birdman. T-Raww dismissed all claims against Cash Money Records and Young Money Entertainment after suing them for $10 million, according to documents obtained by The Blast.

Tyga filed a lawsuit last year in which he claimed the labels owed him money following his 2016 exit. The “Taste” creator sued for a breach of contract, alleging unpaid royalties for 2012’s Careless World and 2013’s Hotel California albums.

Cash Money disputed Tyga’s allegations and sought to get the case thrown out by a judge, but a possible settlement was discussed.

After settlement talks broke down, Birdman responded to the suit by asserting Tyga actually owed the label money. The Cash Money boss said T-Raww was paid advances that were never recouped.

The case was officially closed after Tyga dropped all claims against his former labels.

YNW Melly Reportedly Facing Death Penalty In Double Murder Case

Miramar, FL – The State of Florida is reportedly seeking the death penalty for YNW Melly after he allegedly killed two members of his fellow YNW crew last October.

TMZ reports the State is confident it can “prove beyond a reasonable doubt” Melly murdered both men —  YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy — for financial gain.

According to the legal docs, the State called it an especially heinous crime and said Melly committed homicide in a “cold, calculated and premeditated manner.” Officials also believe Melly is a criminal gang member.

Florida is one of 30 states that still allow capital punishment.

Melly was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder in February. He pleaded not guilty last month.

Following an investigation, police determined Melly and YNW Bortlen staged the scene to look like a drive-by shooting. They then allegedly drove around with the two dead bodies in the Jeep Compass — where police think the shooting occurred — before dropping them off at a local ER.

Nipsey Hussle Shooting Victim Out Of Jail

Los Angeles, CA – One of the two men who was shot alongside Nipsey Hussle has been released from jail. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department website, Kerry Lathan was released from a California detention center on Saturday (April 20), 12 days after his initial arrest.

The former Rolling ’60s Crip was struck by a bullet near his spine on March 31, the day of Nip’s murder. He’d been released from prison seven months earlier after serving 25 years for a murder charge.

After receiving treatment at the hospital, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation arrested Lathan on a parole violation for associating with a known gang member.

Lauren Noriega, Lathan’s attorney, said the 56-year-old man was simply an innocent bystander. Contrary to previous reports, Lathan said he wasn’t there to meet Nipsey for clothing.

“He wasn’t there to propose any business to Nipsey,” Noriega told KABC-TV. “He had no idea that Nipsey would be there.”

Lathan explained it was “by chance” he was near the Grammy Award-nominated rapper when the gunman approached them.

In an interview with VladTV, Lathan said, “When I go in there, they didn’t have the white [shirts] that I wanted. I said, ‘When y’all gon’ get that in again?’ He said, ‘Well, there go Nipsey in the lot. Go talk to him.’ And I talked to him.

“He said, ‘That’ll be about a week, bro.’ I said, ‘OK.’ And when I said it, it was all bad.”

Last Thursday (April 18), The Department of Corrections announced it will drop the allegations against Lathan. He still has a bullet in his back from the tragic shooting and has trouble walking due to a chip in his pelvis.

Noriega said Lathan immediately began to cry when he found out he was being released from custody.

“He’s very excited to get back to his family,” Noriega said.

Nipsey’s funeral was held on April 11 at the Los Angeles Staples Center, where thousands of people showed up to pay their respects. In the wake of his murder, the intersection of Crenshaw and Slauson — where the shooting occurred — has been renamed Nipsey Hussle Square.

I was like, ‘What’s just some raunchy shit?’ So before I went in the booth, I said, ‘No homo y’all.’ All my boys was in the room. And I started saying crazy shit. But I came out and I was like, ‘Y’all watch, this is about to blow up.’”

“Act Up” continues to blow up the charts. It currently sits at No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.

T.I. Reportedly Sued For $10M Over "Bankroll Mafia" Name

Gwinnett County, GA – A Georgia man by the name of Nicholas Partridge is reportedly suing T.I. for $10 million. According to Bossip, Partridge previously sued the Hustle Gang boss for theft of intellectual property for allegedly co-opting the name “Bankroll Mafia.” Now, he wants the $10 million to compensate his loss.

Partridge says he created the name and idea for “Bankroll Mafia” in 2014 when he was behind bars at the Gwinnett County Jail. He explained while he was protective custody, he’d pass the time by drawing. The suit says this was when he created the “Bankroll Mafia” brand and company. By the time he was released in October 2014, he noticed Tip had adopted the “Bankroll Mafia” name.

In 2016, Tip dropped the Bankroll Mafia album as part of the Bankroll Mafia group featuring Young Thug, Shad da God, PeeWee Roscoe, Lil Duke, London Jae and, of course, T.I.

Partridge insists he never gave Tip permission to use the name and wants to be reimbursed for the financial loss he says he suffered.

The Family Hustle star has yet to respond publicly to the suit.
