DaBaby Hasn’t Smoked Weed Since New Year’s Eve

DaBaby is giving up weed.

The “Bop” rapper claims that he hasn’t smoked marijuana since New Year’s Eve. Taking to Twitter, DaBaby responded to a fan who said he looked “high as hell” in his photo.

But DaBaby said he hasn’t had any weed in his system since 2019. “I haven’t smoked since the ball dropped,” he added.

During his Q&A with fans, the Grammy-nominated artist also revealed that he stopped drinking liquor. “Wine Only,” he responded when someone asked what he had been drinking.

But he admitted that he had some tequila while hanging with friends. “But bruh nem had me on the Patron last night,” he said.

Over the weekend, video surfaced of DaBaby getting into an altercation with a hotel worker who filmed him. DaBaby claims he asked him not to because he was with his daughter. But the man took the video anyway, prompting DaBaby to physically attack him.

“That hotel worker you see me ‘pushing’ came up to me outside the hotel & asked could he record a video of me while I was holding my 2year old daughter,” he explained. “I calmly and respectfully said no and explained to him that him posting a video of me at the time would compromise the safety of me and my child by letting social media know where we were staying.”

He also threatened legal action against the hotel if they don’t provide footage of his interaction with the employee prior to the altercation. “I got a big pretty ass lawsuit otw with their name on it,” said DaBaby.

Lil Wayne Will Be On The Next Episode Of "Drink Champs"

Lil Wayne is always an interesting subject, whether he’s performing new unreleased music or promoting his new venture into the cannabis industry. That’s why it comes as pretty exciting news that Weezy will be the latest person to stop by N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN’s wildly popular Drink Champs podcast.

Giving us orders to ficially address Lil Wayne as “O.G. Wayne” from now on, the Drink Champs crew unveiled their special guest a little over an hour ago Instagram. Almost immediately, fans were begging for the DC team to drop the interview, or at the very least let the world know when we could expect to see it. As now, all we have is the caption that reads “STAY TUNED” accompanied by a #comingsoon hashtag, but we’re sure the wait will without a doubt be worth the entertainment. If Curren$y’s classic tale about almost dying while drinking lean with Lil Tunechi during his own 2016 Drink Champs interview says anything about the stories that Weezy can tell, let’s just say be prepared for pretty much anything. Can’t wait!

New episodes the Drink Champs podcast hosted by Noreaga & DJ EFN arrive on Fridays at 12AM ET, so expect Lil Wayne’s interview to arrive later this week.

DaBaby Claims That He Gave Up Weed On New Years

New year, new DaBaby. Many us make pledges on New Year’s Eve to change our lives for the better, and DaBaby is no different. It appears that the southern rapper has given up getting high in 2020. The revelation came on Sunday (January 19) when DaBaby posted a picture himself on Twitter. Draped in diamonds and rocking a Louis Vuitton sweatshirt, DaBaby was lowkey stunting for the picture. Fans soon began to comment on the picture, stating that DaBaby looked super high in the shot. One user tweeted, “Baby you look high asl in this one.” The rapper responded by simply writing, “I haven’t smoked since the ball dropped.”

Another user guessed that DaBaby was at least tipsy in the picture in question, which turned out to be true. “Wine Only,” stated DaBaby when asked if he still drinks. “But bruh nem had me on the Patron last night,” he admitted. Its possible that his arrest for possession marijuana last year is playing a role in how DaBaby wants to handle 2020. DaBaby is also in some new trouble after footage him assaulting a hotel worker went viral last week. DaBaby has already responded to that incident. 

 

Raz B’s New DUI Charge Might’ve Just Canceled Any Chance Of A B2K Reunion

If you thought there was any chance that Omarion was staging a surprise B2K reunion at the upcoming Millennium 2020 Tour, you can pretty much dead that! The group’s other other black sheep, Raz B, has just added another notch on his belt legal troubles after being booked on a DUI charge in California yesterday. 

While the former boy band superstar promised new music in 2020 (seen above), it’s looking like he’s just delivering more damning headlines that we’ve come accustomed to over the past few years. From reports last year that included eberything from an alleged strangulation assault on his girlfriend to even having his bag stolen on a Lyft ride — oh man, not the LV tote! — our boy B just can’t seem to catch a break. According to TMZ, the latest mishap occurred after Raz ran a red light in his Mercedes-Benz. After being pulled over by law enforcements — he claimed to be “lost and didn’t have his driver’s license” — the ficer smelled alcohol on his breath, which then led the “Bump, Bump, Bump” singer to fess up to drinking and smoking weed earlier that night. After failing the breathalyzer, Raz B was arrested and booked in Burbank, CA but was able to post his bail $5,000 and was released soon after.

Raz, we’re praying for you homie. Take a look below at the former B2K heartthrob during better days:

Stephen A. Smith Proposes Ridiculous Kyle Kuzma Lakers Trade

Stephen A. Smith has been known to dole out his fair share hot takes although, on Tuesday, he came through with a truly head-scratching proposal. During a segment on First Take, the panel was talking about what the Lakers would need to do in order to get to the next level and eventually become a bonafide championship contender. Smith said the Lakers would need to make a trade for a sharpshooter and that they should be looking towards the Phoenix Suns.

Smith decided the Lakers should trade young star Kyle Kuzma and a first-round pick in exchange for Devin Booker. Yes, the exact same Devin Booker with multiple 50-point games and the weight an entire franchise on his shoulders. Needless to say, Smith’s idea was certainly a shocking one.

Fans couldn’t believe what they were hearing and immediately reacted with “stay f the weed” jokes. Eventually, Smith had a Q & A later that day and one fan decided to step up and ask Smith about his recent proposal. Smith simply explained that he was creating hypothetical scenarios and that he doesn’t expect such a deal to actually take place.

Based on this latest trade proposal, it doesn’t seem like Smith will be an NBA general manager anytime soon although we’re sure he’d rather continue his role as an analyst anyway.

Lupus, which is the same condition J. Dilla battled prior to untimely passing, is a “long-term autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissue.

“Symptoms include inflammation, swelling, and damage to the joints, skin, kidneys, blood, heart, and lungs,” according to Medical News Today.

During a 2014 interview with The Breakfast Club, Trick said he stopped taking medication for the disease and self-medicates with coke-laced joints instead.

“When I smoke weed and coke, the worst thing that’s gonna happen to me is I’mma got to sleep or eat,” he said. “If I take Lupus medicine, I gotta take a pill for this pill, a pill for that pill… then I gotta go back to the doctor every Thursday and give them my money.”

Charges include possession of cocaine, possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon and driving with a suspended license.

Report: R. Kelly’s Girlfriend Azriel Clary Ready to Turn On Him

One of R. Kelly’s girlfriends may be turning her back on the singer.

Sources tell TMZ that Azriel Clary has come to a realization that Kelly manipulated her since she moved out of his Trump Tower condo and reconnected with her family. She is now considering working with the feds after a blowout fight with Kelly’s other girlfriend, Joycelyn Savage.

Clary is reportedly looking to help law enforcement with its investigation into Kelly, but is scared because she lied to federal agents in the past. She fears repercussions if she changes her story and tells the truth about what happened with her and Savage. She has also signed an NDA with Kelly and fears she could face legal action if she speaks out.

Clary maintains that she was telling the truth about Savage having with her when she was still a minor, which triggered their fight. Cops were called to Kelly’s Trump Tower unit after the explosive incident, which was captured by Clary on Instagram Live.

Clary alleges that Savage lied along with Kelly. “Rob has been lying to all of y’all,” Clary says in the video. “That is the sad fucking part about it. He been lying to all y’all asses. And he have people like me lying for him. That’s why we never watched the documentary.”

She also threatens to have Savage arrested. “Call a fuckin’ attorney. I want this bitch in jail with her man,” she adds. “You can go be Tweedledee and Tweedledum in a fucking jail cell. I want this bitch in jail.”

Savage later turned herself in and and was charged with domestic battery. Investigators are now reviewing the dispute between Clary and Savage, but are leaving it in the hands of the state authorities. However, the feds may be interested in speaking with Clary.

Clary previously defended Kelly and accused her own parents of extortion. “This is all fucking lies for money and if you can’t see that, you’re ignorant and you’re stupid as fuck,” she told Gayle King in an interview last year.

Kelly has pleaded not guilty to over a dozen -crime charges filed against him since February. The 53-year-old singer, who remains in federal custody, is scheduled to go on trial in his federal case in Chicago in April, and the following month in New York, with the state case in Chicago scheduled for Sept. 14.

Lil Wayne Smokes Big Weed & Plugs His Marijuana Brand

Cannabis connoisseur Lil Wayne wants to stay high at all times the day, depending on ultra-potent strains to keep his mind at ease. Much like a number other high-prile rappers, Tunechi is moving into the cannabis industry to make a buck producing some the finest marijuana products known to man, hawking them through his brand new GKUA Ultra Premium brand. While Weezy doesn’t have as extensive a weed background as Berner or Snoop Dogg, you can always catch him with a blunt in his mouth.

His relentless upward trajectory throughout 2019 was suddenly being halted and everyone just wanted to see him keep winning.

The producer, who’s made a name for himself in both hip-hop and electronic spaces, shared a glimpse his festivities on Instagram which included strippers and loud music.

After swiping, you’ll find an incredibly blurry photo Carnage seated in the background the first photo.
