According to reports, law enforcement found Porter’s lifeless body Thursday in California.

Kim Porter, the model and actress who dated Diddy for 13 years, was found dead Thursday at her L.A. area home … TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us they got a call to Porter’s Toluca Lake home around noon. According to emergency dispatch audio the call came in as a patient in cardiac arrest. A source connected to Kim tells us she’d been suffering flu-like symptoms, and possibly pneumonia, for several weeks, but it’s still unclear what exactly caused her death. Another source says Kim had contacted her doctor just yesterday complaining she wasn’t feeling any better. (TMZ)

Diddy’s representative confirmed the tragic and unexpected passing.

“Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter,” the musician’s rep tells Us in a statement. “I ask that you give the families privacy at this time.” LAPD Officer Jeff Lee also tells Us: “I can confirm that there is an investigation underway in the 10300 block of Woodbridge. That call came out at 11:38 this morning. And there is a female deceased at the scene. We are sending our homicide detectives over there to find out whether or not foul play was involved.” (Us Weekly)

Ella Mai Performs on ‘SNL’

Ella Mai’s breakout year continues. After earning her first top 5 smash with “Boo’d Up” and touring with Bruno Mars, the British songstress made her debut on the Steve Carell-hosted episode of “SNL” this weekend.

For her first performance of the night, the 24-year-old took over Studio 8H to perform her Mustard-produced hit “Boo’d Up.” Joined by a band and backup singers, a smiling Ella belted out the soulful song, which was certified 3x platinum.

She returned to perform “Trip” off her self-titled debut, which dropped last month. Standing in front of a bench with chain-link fence backdrop, she recreated the music video for the song, delivering her sweet harmonies while accompanied by a pair of backup singers.

Starting next year, you can catch Ella live on “The Debut Tour.” The North American leg of the global trek kicks off Feb. 12 in Vancouver and runs through March.

She can also be heard on “Love Me Like That (Champion Love)” off the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced Creed II: The Album.

Today In Hip Hop History: LL Cool J Dropped His Debut Album ‘Radio’ 33 Years Ago

On this date in 1985, James Todd Smith better known as LL Cool J, dropped his first full length LP on Def Jam Records. Primarily produced by Rick Rubin besides “I Need A Beat”, which was produced by DJ Jazzy Jay, Radio was a pivotal LP for not only LL and Def Jam, but for an evolving Hip Hop landscape that had just seen the rapid decline of b-boying and jams in the park. This was also the era in which the crack epidemic hit the streets and all of the major players used LL Cool J as the prototype image of how a hustler is supposed to look.

Songs like “I Can’t Live Without My Radio” and “Rock The Bells” dominated airwaves as well as influenced other artists of that time period with his braggadocios content and virtually forceful delivery. The song that actually got Cool J the deal with Def Jam, “I Need A Beat”, was written and recorded when LL was only 15 years old, making him not only Def Jam’s first solo artist, but also their youngest.

Salute to Cool J, Rick Rubin, Russell Simmons, Jazzy Jay and everyone at Def Jam from that era that help put together this timeless classic!

Conor McGregor Channels His Inner Notorious B.I.G. W/ Sky’s The Limit Lyrics

Conor McGregor

UFC superstar Conor McGregor is more than just inspired by the late Notorious B.I.G. The MMA fighter hit up social media this weekend to show a little respect to the iconic hip-hop mogul.

Conor hit up Instagram last night (November 17) with a quote from B.I.G.’s “Sky’s The Limit” classic.

Earlier this month, Conor jumped on social media to explain just how much boxing god Mike Tyson meant to him.

I went to see Mike Tyson last night in the Helix, Dublin, Ireland. I love and respect Mike Tyson. And I love the Helix. I won my first World Title here, and also my second. It was good to meet you Mike. You spoke some things about me in the past which I did not like and I was happy to speak to you face to face, put it to bed and have some fun. You are in good spirits and I was happy to see this! I will always have the height of respect for you! Some decisions you have made around your finances I do not agree with. As a fighter you must fight here. The most. And this is a fight that never ends. It is even a fight that we pass on to our next in line. Our blood line. Make sure you stay switched on with those around you at all times. You have good people around you now, I can tell. But stay switched on. Your Marijuana strain that you grow on your own ranch “KO Kush” is really nice. It was an honour to taste it and I wish you and your team all the best with this endeavor. Just remember, if someone tries to rip you. Rip their nose off their face. You are a fighting icon and deserve endless love and respect! And from me, you will always have it! Don’t let anyone take anything from you. You owe nobody nothing. It is you who is owed. Always remember that. I love you Mike! Iron Mike Tyson! Here is an iconic photograph as a gift from me to you, from head photographer at @mcgregorproductions , @ginger_beard_photos

Last month, McGregor reflected on his headline-generating UFC 229 pay-per-view fight loss to opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov.

View this post on Instagram

Thoughts on my last fight. Round 1. I believe from a sport standpoint, round 1 was his. Top position against the fence. Zero position advancement or damage inflicted. But top position. From a fight standpoint the first round is mine. Actual shots landed and a willingness to engage. Straight left early. Knee to the head on the low shot. Elbows in any and all tie up scenarios. Opponent just holding the legs against the fence for almost the entire round. Round 2 he is running away around the cage before being blessed with a right hand that changed the course of the round, and the fight. It was a nice shot. After the shot I bounced back up to engage instantly, but again he dipped under to disengage. That is the sport and it was a smart move that led to a dominant round, so no issue. Well played. If I stay switched on and give his stand up even a little more respect, that right hand never gets close and we are talking completely different now. I gave his upright fighting no respect in preparation. No specific stand up spars whatsoever. Attacking grapplers/wrestlers only. That won’t happen again. I also gave my attacking grappling no respect. To defense minded. Lessons. Listen to nobody but yourself on your skill set. You are the master of your own universe. I am the master of this. I must take my own advice. Round 3. After the worst round of my fighting career, I come back and win this round. Again walking forward, walking him down, and willing to engage. Round 4. My recovery was not where it could have been here. That is my fault. Although winning the early exchanges in 4, he dips under again and I end up in a bad position with over 3 on the clock. I work to regain position and end up upright, with my back to the fence. A stable position. Here however, I made a critical error of abandoning my over hook at this crucial time, exposing the back, and I end up beaten fair and square. What can I say? It was a great fight and it was my pleasure. I will be back with my confidence high. Fully prepared. If it is not the rematch right away, no problem. I will face the next in line. It’s all me always, anyway. See you soon my fighting fans I love you all ❤
