Rap-A-Lot Records CEO J Prince wants Pusha-T to know he doesn’t want any 6 God smoke. The hip-hop executive has warned King Push about coming after his longtime protégé.
In a new video, Prince said Pusha needs to stop talking about Drake and focus on other things.
The Rap-A-Lot Records CEO told us Pusha’s nothing more than an ant, and he issued a warning for the rapper. Some might hear that warning as more of a threat, but he says Pusha’s got nothing to worry about, but only because he’s not on Drake’s level. Despite the fact both Drake and Pusha have been dredging up … J Prince assured us it’s over and done. (TMZ)
This week, Pusha-T revealed Drake’s pal Noah “40” Shebib played a key role in having ammunition for his “Story of Adidon” diss song.
“The information came from 40. It didn’t come from Kanye. At all. 40 is sleeping with a woman. He talks to her daily, five, six hours a day, provides opportunity for her. Ultimately speaks on how he’s disgruntled about certain things. Notoriety and things involving Drake and his career and so forth. With that also came the fact that Drake has a child. With that also came the trip that everybody took to go see the child and bring him gifts. All of this information.” (The Joe Budden Podcast)
This week, The LOX’s Styles P weighed-in on Pusha and Drake’s now-defunct summer feud.
“In rap, rappers feel like they have to engage – I feel like it was a lot of legitimate factors he left out the situation. Pusha-T just dropped an album. He dropped a diss record the next day and mentioned his wife. He could have not did a record and straight up punched Drake in the face when he seen him because that’s a violation. Once you bring somebody family [into the battle], you don’t know how Pusha-T, he just got married, you don’t know how his wife feel. You threw her in the battle and then you’re asking him to follow a guideline. That’s off the question. Then something else you’re asking him is to not follow tradition. Pusha-T is not a new rapper, he’s been around for a while. There’s no rules in this. He’s heard it all when he’s heard beef. He’s heard it all. And then Drake, you’re the biggest guy in the game, just chill. There’s nothing wrong with that. It shouldn’t have been a battle. I like Drake’s music, I think he’s a star. I put him up there with Kanye, Puff, he’s a star. But I think we’re beginning to forget a lot of rules in this culture with the stars and we start switching them around – I don’t got nothing against Drake but how does a guy say what’s the rules in a rap battle who had a ghostwriter before? That’s not fair, dog. You’re letting a dude who had a ghostwriter say what we can do in the dirt. Nah dog, you gotta stay up there. And you’re beautiful up there. But don’t come down here. You can’t change the rules.” (Hot 97)
Nothing is wrong with not engaging in warfare it’s actually the wiser thing to do . But never engage and expect rules . That’s with rap or the streets ..

A few days ago, Drake explained his motivation behind not releasing a career-ending diss song aimed at Kanye West and Pusha-T.
“I got home and I just listened back to it, and I was like, man, this is not something I ever wanna be remembered for,” he said. “This is not even a place that I necessarily want to go. And to all the people who enjoy that, I tip my hat to you. By the way, hell of a chess move. The song, I thought it was trash. But the chess move was genius. Back against the wall. I either go all the way filthy or I fall back and I have this sort of chink in my armor for the rest of time to a rap purist. Which is fine, I can live with that. I would much rather live with that than the things that I was about to… the research I did, the things that I was gonna say, and the places that I was gonna go. Not only for him, but the other guy too.” (“The Shop”)

Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. went vintage-vintage for Throwback Thursday. The sports mogul jumped on social media this week to reflect on a couple of his past fighting foes.
Money Mayweather hit up Instagram Thursday (October 18) to taunt boxing veteran Oscar De La Hoya and Canelo Alvarez.

#TBT It didn’t matter if Canelo ate his PED steak or not this night, this was by far the easiest fight of my career! Connor McQuitter was a way better fighter than Canelo's cheating ass and I beat the brakes off him too! It takes me 36 mins or less to make $300 million plus. It literally takes me 1 night and 1 fight to make what you might make in 5 years and 11 fights! So really, who's still winning? You do the math!
This week, Canelo called out Mayweather and shared his interest in having a rematch with the living legend.
Canelo Alvarez says he’s sick of watching Floyd Mayweather try to make fights that hurt the sport of boxing — like Conor and Khabib — and says if he really wants a challenge, LET’S REMATCH! “He wants to continue hurting boxing by making fights that don’t make sense … and not giving boxing the credibility it deserves,” Canelo tells TMZ Sports. “If he wants to return, I ask him to look my way to give a great fight to the fans.” (TMZ)
A few days ago, Floyd announced his interest in boxing UFC superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“What I exactly said is CBS, Showtime, MGM Grand, get that check book ready because you already know I’m Floyd Money Mayweather. I’m in the check-cashing business. I’m about that money. We fighting. I mean, I’m my own boss. So I can’t say what’s going on on Khabib’s end but on my end, we can make it happen. Then I saw on IG and social media he put, basically he’ll fight but he doesn’t want to fight in Vegas. Of course we know Vegas is the fighting capitol and after the fight you have to conduct yourself as a professional. Not just inside the ring but outside the ring. You must conduct yourself as a professional and it was a big melee. I haven’t had a chance to see it but from what I heard it was a crazy melee [after UFC 229].

The kicks that grace NBA courts are just as important as the basketballs that bounce on them. Players are known for signing lucrative sneaker deals with companies or in the rare case of Lonzo Ball start your own company. Kyle Kuzma took things to another level by partnering with an actual sneaker marketplace.
Yesterday (Oct 18), GOAT announced its partnership with the budding Los Angeles Lakers forward making him their official brand ambassador. The announcement is a first between a current NBA player and a sneaker reselling company. As part of Kuzma’s ambassadorship, he will rock “rare and highly-coveted Nike sneakers” on and off the court.
The hope is by seeing the sneakers on the court it will drive sneakerheads to either GOAT’s app or website where they can purchase current and rare sneakers or as we like to call them grails. The company which is based out of Los Angeles boasts an impressive collection of 75,000 pairs extraordinary footwear finds.
This latest deal is one of many already made by the young NBA star. He currently has a working relationship with Nike and announced back in June a partnership with Humbyl Coin, a cryptocurrency that is geared towards fantasy sports. Kyle definitely is finding ways to expand his coins beyond the game of basketball and should be commended for it. It also will help he has one of the best business minds in sports in LeBron James on his team as so he can definitely pick his brain for more advice.

Rihanna is taking a knee with Kap.
The pop superstar has reportedly turned down an offer to headline next year’s Super Bowl LIII halftime show in support of Colin Kaepernick, reports Us Weekly.
“The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” says the insider. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.”
Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality and systemic racism. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has not played since the 2016 season as a result of the controversy. He has filed a grievance against the league, accusing them of colluding to keep him off the field.
After Rihanna declined, the NFL offered the show to Maroon 5. While no official announcement has been made, Adam Levine and his band will reportedly headline the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show. There are also rumors that Cardi B and Travis Scott will join them during the performance at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Feb. 3.
Rihanna is not the first artist to decline the Super Bowl. JAY-Z also reportedly turned down an offer to headline this year’s halftime show in Minnesota in support of Kaepernick.
“I said no to the Super Bowl / You need me, I don’t need you,” the Roc Nation mogul rapped on “APESHIT” off The Carters’ Everything Is Love album.

After cursing TMZ out on her social media, Cardi B hit up Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk all about the paparazzi, motherhood, and what she didn’t know about childbirth. The “Get Up 10” rapper claims her daughter, Kulture Kiari, “broke” her little lady parts.
She told Kimmel that she loves being a mom: “It’s the best,” she said. “It’s like ‘oh my gosh I should have had you when I was a teenager. This is what I was missing my whole life, I love you.'” Unfortunately, no one told her what it was going to take to welcome her mini-me into this world. Speaking on giving birth, Cardi confessed “It was totally hard, it broke my vagina…nobody told me they were going to stitch my vagina. People just be like, ‘oh, you know, when you give birth, it’s gonna hurt’ but nobody tells you.”
Still, Cardi reveals she definitely wants to have a few more kids with her husband Offset. Watch her talk about that, what she would do as Mayor of NYC, and more in the accompanying clips.
