“You wanted a reality show host as president. Well, now you’re on Survivor,” joked 50. He continued in the caption saying, “yeah we fucked up big time, but we gonna be alright watch. LOL.”
Being from Queens, New York, 50 may have been set f by Trump coming at New York in recent days, placing blame on the city and mulling a Quarantine on the state New York and surrounding area. Saturday, Trump tweeted, “I am giving consideration to a QUARANTINE developing ‘hot spots,’ New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. A decision will be made, one way or another, shortly.” He described a potential quarantine as “short,” citing “two-weeks” for New York.
In the last 24 hours, 67 died in New York City from the virus. There are 29,158 confirmed cases in the city. The borough Queens, specifically, is the worst-hit area in the nation. There are 9,228 cases in Queens, making up 32% the total cases in New York City. Across the United States, the CDC reports 103,321 confirmed cases and 1,668 deaths.
Experts expect that the virus may not peak for another three weeks at the earliest.
Often, “Old Heads” in hip hop are criticized for not giving new generations artists the benefit the doubt. As generations grow and evolve, there will always be some hint division, but elders have complained that some youngsters aren’t giving them the respect they deserve. This isn’t an absolute, because Lil Baby made it clear that he may have achieved more than others at his age, but it doesn’t mean their successes should be compared.

During a recent chat with Ebro Darden for Rap Life, the radio and podcast host mentioned Jay Z in the conversation. Ebro noted that Lil Baby is 25-years-old with all his success, adding that Jay hadn’t even released his classic debut album Reasonable Doubt at his age (Hov was 26 when he shared that album). “I can’t compare myself to nobody in that gap ’cause it is a lotta more sh*t nowadays,” Baby said. “I got a whole Instagram with 10 million followers. No way Jay Z and them had that]. It’s so many different ways where I won’t even let that get ‘caught in my head.”
The Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Queens, New York City, was shown filled to the brim with Coronavirus patients seeking medical care in a disturbing new Facebook video. The emergency room the hospital in question was crammed with defeated-looking patients on gurneys, pushed side-by-side. Patients were also shown sitting in chairs waiting to be assessed by a medical pressional. At the beginning the clip, a distressed employee can be heard asking, “Who is the sickest patient who] needs to go up?”
“I don’t know,” responds another voice. The video is a perfect illustration how condensed and crowded hospitals have become since the coronavirus pandemic escalated, particularly in the United States and specifically in New York. The clip was posted on Thursday by a Facebook user after an anonymous hospital worker had sent it to them. At the time it was posted, Queens was leading New York City as bearing the highest percentage reported cases coronavirus out all five NYC boroughs, with 7,362 reported cases infection. Out the 4,720 patients hospitalized citywide, at least 850 were being treated in the ICU. In response to the video, a spokesman for the hospital simply said that the footage was “unauthorized.”
Britney Spears may not be timing her 100 metre sprints correctly, as she claimed to have run that distance in less than 6 seconds, which is just over half the time it took Usain Bolt in his 2009 record-breaking sprint. In recent years, the former pop star has become well-known for keeping up with her fitness, ten documenting her workouts social media. Britney is certainly no stranger to the gym, but her latest exercise achievement seems highly implausible. Brit took to Instagram on Wednesday to share her self-progress, claiming to have sprinted 100 metres in just under 6 seconds.
“Ran my first 5 !!!!” she wrote on a screenshot her timer with the timestamp “00:05.97” on it. “Getting over your fear pushing it in the beginning is key…once I did that I hit 5 !!!!! Usually I run 6 or 7 …. my first try was 9 …. and now I did it whoop !!!!! 100 meter dash.” Despite her excitement, fans were immediately suspicious Britney’s claims. Many were quick to point out that Usain Bolt currently holds the world record for the fastest 100 metre sprint, with 9.58 seconds. The sprinter set the world record at the 2009 Berlin World Athletics Championships, and has yet to be beaten by any other athlete. Considering she herself is not a pressional athlete nor has she been extensively trained in the sport, it seems highly unlikely that Britney would be able to beat Usain’s sprinting record so easily.

“So you broke the 100m world record?” one user asked her. “Are we just going to ignore the fact she has just beaten usain bolt (The world record holder) by 3 seconds???” another commented. “100 metres in under 6 seconds,” wrote another. “Watch out usain bolt.” Some her followers pointed out that she had recently broken her foot, so her supposed world-record-breaking feat would be even more impressive, if it were true. “Britney Spears, world record breaker,” one her fans said. “I believe you, Queen!”
Another day, another challenge. Recently, celebrities went viral after clips them singing John Lennon’s “Imagine” circulated online. Later, Tyler Perry called on his famous friends to flex their vocal skills while singing “He’s Got The Whole World in His Hands.” The song is hailed as a religious Negro Spiritual but is sung worldwide by people all ethnic backgrounds.
Mariah Carey is undeniably one the most celebrated singers in the world, so it was only a matter time before she added her flawless vocals to the challenge. The Queen the Lambs shared a clip herself belting out a variety octaves as she sang the song’s simple lyrics. Mariah Carey has fans that are dedicated through and through, but after the video went viral, many people took to social media to vocalize their disapproval. Watch Mariah sing her version #HesGotTheWholeWorldChallenge and let us know what you think.
Some couples are using this time social distancing to get a little space from one another while others decided to be quarantined together. Rapper Jeezy and his girlfriend Jeannie Mai are staying in and using this mandatory time at home to connect more with their families. On Monday (March 23), Jeannie told E! that because The Real is on pause for the moment, all the show’s hosts are spending time connecting with their viewers through social media.
Fans aren’t the only ones connecting. Yesterday, Jeannie shared a video on her Instagram page that shows her mother, Oli Mai, and Jeezy enjoying a family movie night. It looks like he’s introducing her to a classic black film that we’d say everyone needs to see at least once: Coming to America. We don’t know which is more entertaining, the movie itself or Jeezy singing, “She’s your queen to be…” Check it out below and let us know what movies you think are a must-watch during this quarantine.
Before this got picked up by The Shade Room or any other would-be gossip outlets, Lil’ Kim had to clear the air: she and Tory Lanez are not a thing. The two are close friends, getting to know each other through years common experience in the music industry, and now they’re working together on some new songs.
In a series pictures uploaded to Lil’ Kim’s Instagram page, the legendary rapstress revealed that in pre-quarantine times, she was in the studio with Tory Lanez where they started working on Queen Bee’s next studio album. To celebrate the occasion, they cuddled up and gave the camera some tongue action, which is why Kim needed to clarify.

“Anybody who knows me knows that I love this man and that he’s one my biggest music idols,” wrote Lil’ Kim about Tory Lanez. “And before y’all get started wit ya mess me and my friend @torylanez (and one the executive producer’s my next album) and I oop! We just be having so much fun when we be working in the studio!! I guess it’s safe to say I’m a big fan Toronto!!”
Thankfully, she uploaded the disclaimer because we all know how this would have turned out. Weeks rumors have been avoided thanks to Lil’ Kim’s due diligence. You can’t deny it though… they look low-key cute together.
The Queen Bee is back to making new music. Days ago, Lil Kim shared a video clip herself, Fivio Foreign, and the whole crew getting down in the studio. There wasn’t much social distancing going on because they were too busy jamming to Fivio’s single “Wetty.” He slid in Lil Kim’s comments and wrote, “We went Viral 🔥🔥🔥❗️” and dropped by the following day to add, “Queen 👑 💙.”
She may be hush-hush about whether or not she’s collaborating with her fellow Brooklyn emcee, but Lil Kim did let fans know that she’s been held up in the studio with Tory Lanez. Kim posted a trio photos that showed the 9 rapper hugged up with a very happy Tory. “Anybody who knows me knows that I love this man and that he’s one my biggest music idols 🤩,” the rap icon penned in the caption. “I can’t wait for us to get out this damn quarantine. 😷.”
Before the rumor mill could try and theorize about their relationship, Kim nipped any untrue speculations in the bud. She also fered up a bit information and revealed that Tory Lanez was putting together some magic for her upcoming record. “And before y’all get started wit ya mess me and my friend @torylanez (and one the executive producer’s my next album) and I oop! 🙊 😂,” Lil Kim added. “We just be having so much fun when we be working in the studio!! I guess it’s safe to say I’m a big fan Toronto!! 😂🇨🇦🙌🏽.”
Check out the clip Lil Kim with Fivio Foreign and see her flicks with Tory Lanez below.
The unpredictable events of 2020 haven’t slowed Wiz Khalifa’s musical hustle down one bit.
For his next hit hopeful, the Mcqueen And The Violet Fog owner connects with his Left Coast brethren Tyga for “Contact,” a party-ready single that pushes the limits of social distancing.
“Bitches wanna talk to me, can’t contact/Hit my nigga from the plug, he the contact/And we only do big contracts/Woah, kush thrown, get your contact!” they flow in unison on the chorus atop a tantalizing Ronny J beat.

A growing number of artists are using Instagram Live to connect with their fans and peers as the coronavirus pandemic continues its global rampage.
Boogie Down Productions DJ D-Nice ignited a viral dance party over the weekend with over 100,000 people. Presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, former First Lady Michelle Obama, Rihanna, Drake, Erykah Badu and Russell Simmons were just a few of the famous names scrolling across the Instagram screen.
DJ Premier also got things popping on Saturday night (March 21), which also happened to be his 54th birthday. Lord Finesse, Alchemist, Apathy and the aforementioned Def Jam Recordings co-founder were all tuned in as the legendary producer played cuts from the Beastie Boys, Gang Starr and more.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Here are some Instagram accounts to watch as the weeks of self-quarantine roll on.
The neo-soul goddess announced her “Quarantine Concert Series: Apocalypse One- Live,” which she describes as an “interactive, intimate experience from my bedroom.” Keep an eye on her account as she continues to provide updates.
Of course, D-Nice will go down in history for his epic Instagram Live party on Saturday (March 22). The list of famous names who joined the session was staggering. In addition to the ones previously mentioned, Will Smith, De La Soul, Black Thought, Bun B, 2 Live Crew’s Uncle Luke, Queen Latifah, Preemo and Ms. Badu also tuned in to see what D-Nice was throwing down.
The Jurassic 5 turntablist is working on something special. He’s expected to go live by Thursday (March 26), so any Ozomatli, J5 or underground Los Angeles Hip Hop fans need to keep an eye on his account.
Eiht’s fellow Compton’s Most Wanted MC Tha Chill has also been getting funky on Instagram Live. From classics such as Digital Underground’s “Humpty Dance” to the West Coast gangta rap he’s famous for spitting, Tha Chill knows how to keep things moving.
Bay Area Hip Hop staple DJ Fresh hopped on Instagram Live to give his fans a little taste of what he’s been working on recently. Surrounded by multiple keyboards and other studio equipment, he delivers some heat. Tune in.
Over the weekend, Bun B and his wife Angela “Queenie” Walls found themselves involved in a tense altercation, which appeared to have started after a woman allegedly called Queenie the n-word and threatened to shoot her. The incident in question transpired in the parking lot a Whataburger, and while Bun only started filming after the insult was flung, the aftermath paints a clear picture as to what transpired.
“The woman] decided to call us a n***a today,” explains Bun, in the middle a parking lot stand-f. “She felt like calling me a n***a.” Queenie chimes in that she also threatened to shoot her, inviting the challenge. As the stalemate continues, Bun explains that it all started in the Whataburger drive-through line when the woman lost her patience with the queue and pulled up alongside the couple’s car. “She told Queenie she was going to shoot her and then got out and called us a ‘stupid n***a.'”

“She just had to say n***a,” marvels Bun. “And that she was going to shoot my beautiful wife. She must not know what happened the last time a n***a threatened to shoot my wife. Guess who got shot. It wasn’t my wife.” Before long, a policeman hits the scene and Bun patiently breaks it down, eventually finishing up his Livestream as the ficer checks his ID.
The saga picks up once the stalemate has ended, with Bun B and Queenie hitting up a nearby Walgreens store and discovering the woman’s vehicle parked outside. Queenie proceeds to march into the store, donning her protective mask for good measure, hellbent on laying down a masterclass in consequence. It doesn’t take long for their paths to cross, and Queenie begins laying into the woman. “Surprise!” she declares. “You remember me? I’m still that n***a? Am I still that n***a?” The woman, clearly defeated, utters a meek “no.”
Bun closes out the Livestream with a word warning. “Be careful what you say to people and think you just going to walk away from it,” he states. “Be very careful.”
Bun B and his wife’s simple trip to Whataburger turned into a huge mess for the couple.
The UGK legend used Instagram Live to document the aftermath of an incident in which a woman allegedly called his wife Angela “Queenie” Walls the n-word and threatened to shoot her in the fast food joint’s parking lot.
Bun’s livestream showed the woman filming them too as both cars were at a standstill for a few minutes. The veteran MC and his wife detailed what happened to his followers before police arrived at the scene, leading to them sharing what went down with the cops.
“So the [drive-thru] line extended out into the street; she pulled up and was blowing [her horn] at us to move,” Bun told an officer. “We told her to wait, we’re not moving yet. She told my wife she was gonna threaten to shoot my wife, then she got out the car and called my wife ‘a stupid nigger.’ I have everything on video.”
Presidential hopefuls Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, Diddy, Oprah, former First Lady Michelle Obama, Rihanna, Missy Elliott and Will Smith were among the roughly 100,000 people who tuned in to D-Nice’s Instagram Live “social distancing” party on Saturday (March 21).
The Boogie Down Productions O.G. kicked off the festivities on Wednesday (March 18) in an effort to combat the isolation the coronavirus is forcing on people and by the weekend, the event was on fire.
D-Nice wrote about the momentous occasion on Instagram and expressed his utter shock at the number of celebrities who joined.
“I never would’ve imagined that the best party I would create and DJ would be from the comfort of my own home,” he captioned a photo of himself. “Homeschool is a thing! Yesterday was absolutely insane. The amount of artists and friends that virtually partied with me far exceeded my expectations. I’m feeling nothing but gratitude.

“Thanks to all of you that supported. This has been a great way to keep our spirits high. Blessings! Sending some love to my family. Shout out to all of my industry execs! Much love to all of the artists.”
D-Nice went on to list everyone by name, which also included Jennifer Lopez, Drake, Naomi Campbell, De La Soul, Black Thought, Bun B, Donnie Wahlberg, 2 Live Crew’s Uncle Luke, Russell Simmons, Mary J. Blige, DJ Khaled, T.I., Common, Queen Latifah, Stretch Armstrong, DJ Premier and Erykah Badu.
Frankly, the list is staggering. D-Nice’s Instagram account is definitely one to watch as the coronavirus continues its rampage.

An old conversation between Kanye West and Taylor Swift about the song “Famous” has surfaced online.
In the clip, ‘Ye asks the pop star for permission to use the line, “For all my Southside niggas that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have /Why? I made that bitch famous” — only, he left out the words ‘that bitch.’
Kanye eventually stumbled around the question, “What if later in the song I was also to have said, ‘I made her famous?’” to which Swifts asked, “Did you say that?”
“Yes, it might have happened,” Ye replied. Swift responded, “Well, what am I going to do about it? It’s kind of like, whatever at this point. You gotta tell the story the way it happened to you and the way that you experienced it. You honestly didn’t know who I was before that.
“It doesn’t matter if I sold seven million of that album before you did that, which is what happened. You didn’t know who I was before that. It’s fine. But yeah, I can’t wait to hear it.”
The full conversation is wildly different from the one Kim Kardashian leaked in 2016. It’s now painfully obvious it was edited to make it sound like Swift approved of the line.
“I think this is a really cool thing to have,” Kanye said about the lyric.
Swift replied, “I know, it’s like a compliment, kind of [laughs]. Yeah, I mean, what’s dope about the line is it’s very tongue-in-cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice. For you to ask me if I’d be OK with it, I really appreciate it. I’d never expect you to tell me about a line in your song.”
“Relationships are more important than punchlines,” Ye concluded.
Following the “Famous” song, Swift retreated from the public spotlight, a period that was captured in the recent Netflix doc about Swift, Miss Americana.
In 2016, she addressed the controversy, writing, “Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it doesn’t happen. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to be calling ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world.
“Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship.”
Just a reminder for those who don’t seem to understand.
Kanye never told Taylor about the part of the song where he calls her a bitch. Taylor was NOT lying.
As a result of the newly surfaced clip, #KanyeWestPartyIsOver is trending on Twitter. Naturally, the platform exploded with reactions to this revelation.
Kim Kardashian Leaks Footage Proving Kanye West Got Taylor Swift’s Permission For “Famous”, Taylor Swift Responds
July 17, 2016
Some Swift fans exposed other celebrities who supported (and didn’t support) Kanye at the time, while others accused both Kardashian and Ye of simply being terrible people.
Check out some of the reactions below.
let’s all remember that kanye let crowds of people at his concerts scream “fuck taylor swift” for absolutely no reason other than the fact he wanted to humiliate her and end her career. well, #KanyeWestIsOverParty. that’s it’s that’s the tweet. pic.twitter.com/HUG2yKd9dc
Kanye and Kim really watched everything Taylor built crumble. They watched as it destroyed her mental health to the point of self-isolation. They watched and said nothing. And for what? A shitty lyric in a song no one remembers now? #KanyeWestIsOverPartypic.twitter.com/78Qj0yrh1J
Taylor rebuilt her whole career because of every lie kanye said, made an album that sold millions, had a single that went #1 and filled several stadiums, while this rat did nothing and today the truth is out. I ALWAYS KNEW #KanyeWestIsOverParty pic.twitter.com/WQAfe9o5Rm
Taylor Swift did this after being called a snake for something she told the truth about, with a term she did nothing to deserve, but she didn’t let that stop her, instead she went on and made an unforgettable, record breaking tour, that’s a true queen🖤 #KanyeWestIsOverPartypic.twitter.com/dEAFAT6SJE
TaylorSwiftIsOverParty trended because Kimye recorded a phone call and edited it to target, bully and mass attack Taylor Swift. #KanyeWestIsOverParty is trending because the full phone call leaked proving Kimye lied about everything.
