1. No Place Like Halloween Horror Nights
Iggy Azalea knows how to have fun even when she’s not on the stage or on a dating outing with bae Playboi Carti. The hip-hop diva is living her best life by getting scared to death? Her IG is on it:
We all know Cam’ron keeps computers ‘puting—we hope his lawyers can as well. The Diplomats front man has been hit with a fresh lawsuit stemming from his last studio effort.
The New York Post is reporting that photographer Eli Reed has filed a claim alleging that Killa unlawfully used his work for the cover of The Program. The 2017 release features a black and white photo of seven young kids playing on top of an abandoned car. This same picture graces the photog’s 2015 book Eli Reed: A Long Walk Home.
He asserts that Cam “displayed the Photograph at the point of sale of the mixtape, plastered the Photograph all over merchandise, created videos on his social media pages featuring the Photograph, and even promoted his collaboration with Reebok using the Photograph, all without the least regard for Reed’s intellectual property rights.”
As expected the “Get Em Girls” rapper had his reasons for incorporating the image into his album roll out. According to court filings he never bothered to seek approval as the photo is “in black-and-white, and was presumed to be old and in the public domain.” Reed is seeking damages, all profits from The Program and an injunction stopping the Harlem native from using the shot.
Music isn’t the only thing in this game you need permission before you use it.
Cam’Ron is being sued by photographer Ellis Reed over the Harlem image that was used for his recent mixtape entitled The Program.
The image of the street scene was taken in Harlem over 30 years ago and appears in Reed’s photo book Black In America, which he considers some of his best work.
The lawsuit reads, “He has displayed the Photograph at the point of sale of the mixtape, plastered the Photograph all over merchandise, created videos on his social media pages featuring the Photograph, and even promoted his collaboration with Reebok using the Photograph, all without the least regard for Reed’s intellectual property rights.”
Cam’Ron, whose real name is Cqmeron Giles, is being sued by Ellis for copyright infringement.
New York rapper Cam’ron knows there’s some women out there with their men completely in check. The hip-hop veteran took a break from music-making to share a hilarious clip illustrating some struggles guys go through.
Killa Cam went to Instagram Friday (September 28) with an epic video from comedian Donovan.
New York rapper Cam’ron is all about everyone’s relationship goals – notably the male hip-hop fans struggling to find bae the perfect gift. The Diplomat boss has announced a fresh line of female hoodies.
“I actually came to Miami when he [Drake] was working on his album. I just played him my music from my album, and he heard “No Stylist” and fell in love with it and he was like ‘this is the one you and me should come out with’. I remember I came to Miami, it was me, him and Bad Bunny. We was at my boy Dave’s place, a bunch of ladies, a bunch of you know Miami vibes. You know Miami vice vibes. … I be trying to catch him, he on the road I be on the road but every time we get tougher we gotta make sure we do at least one that’s gonna be classic you know for the youth out there. Show that bond cause I knew my brother since I started, he was on my first single “Pop That” and before that he was on “Stay Schemin’” with me and [Rick] Ross so it’s like when we make music it’s more of a brothership. I mean with people like us at this level of our career like we don’t do stuff for money anymore.” (Beats 1)
“See it’s this thing with me being from the Bronx, where hip-hop started the mecca of hip-hop, I always felt like it got overlooked when it came to fashion. And I feel like people that changed fashion was the icons that we looked up to like Slick Rick when he came out with 40 chains on all the vintage looks and even brings it up to date. When Cam’ron came out with the pink Mink and everybody you know it’s just people that changed culture because everybody thinks if you go to Fashion Week you know how to dress. That’s not, there’s ninety nine point nine people out there that don’t go to Fashion Week they could dress better than anybody on that runway. We want to give that dope boy on the corner.” (Beats 1)
