Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Lobby White House for A$AP Rocky’s Release

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are working to free A$AP Rocky.

The couple has reportedly lobbied the White House to help release the rapper, who has been in Swedish jail for his alleged involvement in a street brawl. According to TMZ, President Trump is aware of Rocky’s situation Sweden and has his team working to get him freed.

Rocky was arrested July 2 over his alleged involvement in a street brawl in Stockholm. Swedish authorities plan to keep him in custody until July 19 while prosecutors decide whether to charge him for aggravated assault, despite video showing the alleged victim harassing and attacking him.

As soon as Kanye heard about A$AP’s predicament earlier this month, Kanye urged Kim to talk to Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who Kim previously worked with on her prison reform efforts. Kim informed Jared of the situation, and Jared took the info to Trump himself.

In addition to Kim and Kanye, Kareem Lanier and Pastor Darrell Scott of the White House’s Urban Revitalization Coalition, also helped connect ASAP’s management directly with Kushner through a phone call.

Trump reportedly told Kushner he believed A$AP was being held unfairly, and wanted to help. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is now actively working to get A$AP out of jail, thanks in large part to Kim’s efforts. A State Dept. member was supposed to arrive in Sweden Thursday.

Despite Pompeo’s efforts, Swedish authorities remain unmoved and there is fear that prosecutors might delay their decision even further and keep A$AP in custody.

Meanwhile, his friends and fans have taken to social media to share their support. Over 600,000 people, including Diddy, Justin Bieber, and Meek Mill, have signed a #JusticeForRocky petition on Change.org to urge Sweden to release him

Offset and Cardi B Perform ‘Clout’ on ‘Kimmel’

Offset and Cardi B bring “Clout” to “Kimmel.”

The power couple took over the streets of Hollywood while performing their Father of 4 collaboration on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday night (July 17). The Migos rapper stepped out of his car and onto his makeshift star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. While making his way down Hollywood Blvd., Offset performed the track while his social media stats were displayed on screen. Clout chasers, including Elvis Presley and Jason Voorhees, approached him for photos and followed him.

Fans went wild when his wife emerged from the car to spit her verse, wearing a colorful skintight bodysuit, before meeting up with her husband on stage to cap things off.

The couple also helped Kimmel translate the lyrics to “Clout” as part of his popular “New Lyrics for Old People” segment. Kimmel’s translation got the stamp of approval from the Hustlers star herself. “Some people don’t understand our lingo, and I think you would be really good…” said Cardi.

Cardi B Puts Big Respect On Donald Trump’s Worst Nightmare Ilhan Omar – “You Know You That B*tch When You Cause All This Conversation”

Cardi B

New York rapper Cardi B is getting political-political. The hip-hop diva took a moment away from music-making to put some major respect on politician Ilhan Omar.

Cardi went to Instagram last night to give Omar a major salute as President Donald Trump continues to take aim at her at rallies.

Yesterday, Trump made headlines after a crowd of North Carolina supporters shouted “send her back” aimed at Omar.

A fired-up crowd shouted its approval of President Donald Trump’s attacks on Somali-born Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and three of her colleagues Wednesday by chanting “Send her back!” Trump, emboldened by the House’s sound rejection of an effort to impeach him over racist commentary about the lawmakers just hours earlier, triggered the chant at his re-election rally in Greenville, North Carolina, by resuming his rhetorical assault on Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass. (NBC News)

Instead of going ghost, Omar stood proud and spoke up for herself on Twitter.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has also come forward to support Omar and single out Trump.

JAY-Z Might Super Low-Key Be A Fan Of Irv Gotti’s TALES Series: “Always Good Hearing From My Brother”

JAY-Z

Rap executive Irv Gotti might have just received one of the biggest “Tales” co-signs to date. The hip-hop veteran has hinted at receiving a m major salute from music icon JAY-Z.

On Thursday, Gotti shared a throwback pic of himself alongside JAY and referenced Young Hov congratulating him on his BET series’ success.

A few weeks ago, Gotti and Kanye West‘s much-hyped “Brothers” collaboration finally premiered during the “Tales” premiere.

After teasing the new track as part of BET’s Tales last month, Kanye West has finally revealed his new track alongside longtime collaborator Charlie Wilson, entitled “Brothers.” Produced by Irv Gotti and Murder Inc producer Seven (Channel 7), the track debuted on the show’s two-hour season premiere late Tuesday night. Reminiscent of the “Big Brother” sound from Ye’s Graduation era, the song relishes in much of the style that early Kanye fans have craved from the artist’s current and future projects. (Hypebeast)

In early July, Ye’s wife Kim Kardashian went to Twitter to plug BET’s “Tales” season premiere and remind followers “Brothers” will finally get released.

Last month, Gotti revealed Yeezy came into the picture for his “Tales” banger a couple years ago.

“As you guys know, with ‘Tales,’ I take existing songs and turn them into, like, a movie. When I approached Kanye back in October of 2017, I was like, ‘Yo, I wanna do something special for the culture. I love the hip-hop culture. I’m a huge, like, believer in the hip-hop culture and what it is and I want to do this for the culture.’ I know this sounds cliché-ish but it’s honest. I said, ‘Yo, let’s give them a new song. I’m going to make a two-hour movie to the song and it’ll be the season premiere.’ You know, Kanye rode out with me, man. He was like, ‘That’s a great thing.’” (TMZ)
