EXCLUSIVE: Did Madonna Try to Bag Big Daddy Kane???? #SheHadTheChance

For years, Big Daddy Kane fans wondered what exactly was up with him and Madonna.

Rumors definitely started to swirl when the “R.A.W.” rapper, got all the way raw with her in the 1992 book, SEX.  Especially when it was revealed that she and Tupac had a brief fling, it is quite plausible that she shot her shot with when she included him in her first literary project.

The photo book explored sex on all types of levels and was consider explicit and pornographic in the 90s. Kane didn’t help. In his spread, he played boy toy to Naomi Campbell and Madonna for some of the most erotic portrayals of art that Hip-Hop had ever seen at the time.

A more mature Kane looks back on that time in his life, and finally tells fans if the “Material Girl” was trying to kick it to him.

The Source: When did you transform from a battle rapper to a sex symbol?

Big Daddy Kane: I guess after the records. When we start putting songs out I guess the female audience changed the whole perspective. It turned into something else.

Was it a conscious thought or an evolution of your person?

Well…  growing up I was ugly, because I was dark-skinned. So I wasn’t used to women hollering at me and saying that I was fine. So that was some new shit when I started making records. I was like “Oh, word!!!” (laughter) I grew up in the LL Cool J/ El Debarge era. So I was like “Oh, word? I’ll take it.”

And then the book….

Oh Madonna?

Did she holler at you? Was she like “I need to talk to you.”

We were doing a promo tour for Warner. Bros. But it was in an upper class hospital. And you know the white kids in the hospitals were sick, they didn’t know who I was. They recognized Madonna and Color Me Badd. And Madonna was talking to them and was like, “This is Big Daddy Kane, a famous rapper. Let me hear you say ‘Ain’t No Half Steppin’” And I am like “Wow… Madonna knows my shit.” She was just showing love. She saw what the situation was, and that I shouldn’t have been there. But then afterwards, she told me she was doing a book and she thought that I was attractive and she would like for me to be in it. And I was like “I would be honored.” And she was like “but its gonna be nude photos.” And I was like “Shit… even better.” (Laughter)

Did she try to holler?

Nah…

Why not?

Or if she did, I didn’t know. I mean.. she was just rather friendly. You know when I go there to the photoshoot… Me, her and Naomi Campbell… 

She tried to holler…

I mean we in photos with my finger up inside of her and she never said “Yo… put something else it.”  If that was a chance for her to shoot her shot… what better time than that? So, I don’t think she tried to holler.

So what happened when you got back to Brooklyn? Did you friends look at you differently?

The people that got love was like “That’s amazing. This dude is up there with ‘Borderline.’ Wow!” And then you had the haters who were like “what you doing with that white woman? You selling out. That’s pop stuff.”  But those same people are gentrified like a mf now.

Guess, she kept her composure and didn’t get some of Mr. Chocolate.

Gillie the King Reveals His Top 5 Rap Groups of All Time… What Philly Group Makes His List?

Gillie the King is the King of Philadelphia.

According to those who are in the know in The City of Brotherly Love…  few things musically goes through the city without him knowing. When Smack White decided to bring his Ultimate Rap League to Philly, Gillie was front and center to watch Cassidy go up against Arsonal (and then he left before the battle was over).  Needless to say, his opinion is respected.

So on one of his most recent episode of his podcast, Million Dollaz Worth of Game with his cousin, Wallo and producer Dev, he listed is Top 5 Rap Groups of all time. What makes the entire exchange hilarious is to see how the trio struggles with coming up with just 5 groups for the list.

The first inkling that no one was coming to full agreement, was when Wallo protested on the three hosts having a combined list (with good reason). Check out the following lists (and those who were knocked off the list).

Gillie the King

First List

  1. Mobb Deep
  2. NWA
  3. Bone Thugs N Harmony
  4. Migos
  5. EPMD

Then Gillie adds that he forgot about RUN DMC and takes WuTang Clan from Dev.

Second List

  1. NWA
  2. RUN DMC
  3. Bone Thugs N Harmony
  4. WuTang Clan

Third List

  1. NWA
  2. WuTang Clan
  3. Mobb Deep
  4. Bone Thugs N Harmony
  5. Major Figgas

Wallo

  1. Public Enemy
  2. NWA
  3. WuTang Clan
  4. RUN DMC
  5. Mobb Deep

Dev Nasty

  1. Mobb Deep
  2. WuTang Clan
  3. Fugees
  4. NWA
  5. RUNDMC

First argument was over Public Enemy, whereas Gillie called them “vigilantes” and says that his cousin walked around with a big red clock like Flavor Flav. They also mention OutKast and Migos. After a certain point, the idea of Top 5 went out the window. The three proved one point: It is impossible to do a top anything with so many amazing lyricists- 40 years into Hip-Hop.

Another funny point, but actually important to note. The Roots did not make Gillie’s list. He mentioned that the Hip-Hop band has never invited him to perform at their legendary picnic. Didn’t we start this off that Gillie is the King of Philly? Whoever is calling the shots…. Ahmir… Black Thought… James Poyser… Kamal Gray… make sure next year his invite finds a way to the MDW offices. We are sure folk would love to see him rip the set.

Fort Worth Cop Charged With Murdering Atatiana Jefferson in her Own Home

Fort Worth police officer, Aaron Dean has been charged with the murder of Atatiana Jefferson and his bail was set to $200,000.

Dean gunned down 28-year-old Jefferson through her bedroom window while responding to a neighbor who requested that the department perform a welfare check. During the time of the shooting, the victim was playing video games with her 8-year-old nephew.

Dean resigned on Monday before being terminated or answering any questions, but his records will indicate that he was dishonorably discharged. Police Chief Ed Kraus added that Dean has not been cooperative with the investigation, but it will continue to be underway as though he’s still an officer.

During a press conference, Kraus stated that the FBI has been contacted in regards to a possible civil rights investigation, on top of the criminal investigation. “Nobody looked at that video and said there was any doubt that this officer acted inappropriately,” Krause said in reference to body cam footage from the shooting.

Additionally, The New York Times reports that Kraus expressed his regrets for the police department releasing a photo of a firearm beneath the window of Jefferson’s bedroom. Krause declined to comment if the victim was holding it or if Dean saw it before shooting, but the family’s attorney argued that she was licensed to carry.

“We’re homeowners in the state of Texas,” Krause said. “I can’t imagine most of us — if we thought we had somebody outside our house that shouldn’t be and we had access to a firearm — that we wouldn’t act very similarly to how she acted.”

Aaron Dean joined the force in April 2018.

The Notorious B.I.G., Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan Nominated for 2020 Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame

The nominees for the 2020 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame are in and more than half of the acts are first-time nominees.

The Notorious B.I.G and Whitney Houston are among the first-time nominees alongside Pat Benatar, Dave Matthews Band, The Doobie Brothers, Motörhead, Soundgarden, T. Rex, and Thin Lizzy. Returning nominees are Depeche Mode (two previous noms), Judas Priest (nominated for Class of 2018), Kraftwerk (nominated five previous times), MC5 (nominated four times before), Nine Inch Nails (nominated two times before), Rufus featuring Chaka Khan (three previous noms) and Todd Rundgren (nominated for Class of 2019).

Following the induction ceremony that took place in Brooklyn this year, the RRHOF will return to Cleveland, Ohio for its 35th annual ceremony in May 2020.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame class is selected by an international body of 1,000 people, however, fans can impact the vote. Starting today, October 15th until January 10, 2020, fans can go online on RockHall.com to cast a vote.

Arguably one of the best rappers in Hip Hop history, if inducted, Biggie Smalls would only be the second solo Hip Hop act to be inducted into the Hall of Fame after Tupac Shakur (2017).

Travis Scott’s “Highest in the Room” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Travis Scott’s star power is radiating. The Houston native dropped his “Highest in the Room” single last week and it will debut at the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

“Highest in the Room” is the first song from the Astroworld rapper to open up at the top of the chart mountain. The song is also No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart at 59 million streams and No. 2 on the Digital Sales Chart at 51,000. The new release moves Lizzo and “Truth Hurts” from a run at the top that went six weeks long.

If fans are looking for the single to sprout the Astroworld follow-up, don’t look too hard. Scott revealed that he is not rushing out an album when he recently spoke with Zane Lowe. With a single performing like this, why would he?

Aside from dominating Billboard charts, Travis Scott also took over the sneaker game this past weekend as his Retro 6 “Cactus Jack” was released by Jordan Brand, selling out instantly.

If you have yet to hear “Highest in the Room,” stream it below.

Cuba Gooding Jr. Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Three Additional Women

Cuba Gooding Jr. was already facing accusations of sexual misconduct from a night in a New York City nightclub, now three new accusers have accused the actor, one of which will bring a new charge against him. TMZ reports the total number of women that have accused Gooding now stands at five.

Gooding began court proceedings last week for the incident this summer, while in court a second woman came forth, resulting in an indictment for an October 2018 encounter. The Oscar-winner is set to be arranged on Tuesday, which will provide further details of the incident.

Mark Heller, the lawyer for Gooding Jr., states the actor will plead not guilty to the charge and the accuser is only coming forward because he was previously arrested. Heller also states the second accuser sought a settlement previously but he and his client would not “be shaken down.”

The three additional incidents occurred in 2008, 2013, and 2015. As of now, no charges have been filed. Page Six details the sexual misconduct in Manhattan is similar to other incidents in area bars and restaurants, specifically grabbing a woman’s butt in a 2013 incident. Gooding was arrested in June after grabbing a woman’s breasts without consent. Gooding was stated to be “heavily intoxicated” at the time.

DMX Reportedly Checked Himself Into Rehab to Avoid Relapsing

We reported yesterday that DMX checked himself back into rehab, but this time it was a precaution to avoid anymore legal troubles.

A source close to the rapper told TMZ the stress of him performing and one of his kids being in-and-out of the hospital has him tempted to use again. He’s aware that he needed help to balance his work and personal life without being under the influence.

Relapsing puts his freedom on the line, and the source reportedly told the tabloid that he wants to continue to support his family, friends and entertain his fans.

DMX is currently on probation and if he fails a drug test, he’s going back to the slammer.

After checking himself back into a rehab facility, the Yonkers rapper had to cancel all upcoming shows to prioritize his sobriety.

The Ruff Ryder has struggled with drug addiction and has been to jail a couple times due to drug-related offenses. He was recently released from prison at the top of the year for tax evasion.

The “How’s It Going Down” rapper was recently photographed for a GQ cover looking well and healthy. We’re hoping that he continues to stay on course to his road to sobriety.

The Minister addresses how “the wicked” seem to attack those who choose to do the right thing. Perhaps spotlighting those who have thrown rocks at him, or giving a basic spiritual principle to his followers, either way he spoke to the hearts of many with this one.

One of the most profound observances from The Minister is when he addressed the current state of world politics and war. Minister Farrakhan believes that war is brewing, and that the world has to be prepared for the impending conflict.

In addition to war talk, God is displeased with not only our country’s politics, but many of our social politics.

Another powerful move was the actual call for ecumenical atonement. He did not only address Muslims, but Christians and Jews also.

How can one prove that they are “real” Muslims, Christians or Jews? We have to do the work of the prophets and touch the people. The Minister beckoned the community to abandon their holy houses and go out to those in need on the streets.

Ebro Denies TMZ Reports of Hot 97 Banning 6ix9ine’s Music

Earlier today, TMZ reported that Hot 97 plans to ban Tekashi 6ix9ine’s music when he gets out of prison. Ebro addressed the report earlier this morning on the Ebro In The Morning radio show, saying he would never talk to anyone from TMZ. He name-dropped a number of the station’s DJs that played Tekashi 6ix9ine’s music, including Funk Flex, DJ Drewski, and DJ Wallah.

The headline on TMZ read, “Tekashi 6ix9ine, Hot 97  Shunning Music Unless… “According to Ebro, that was a false statement.

“I don’t care what people say ’cause when that Tekashi music come out, guess what I’m doing? I’m playing it everyday,” he says.

“Goofball NY n***as created Tekashi 6ix9ine and supported the streets,’” Ebro said. “When he drops new music imma play that sh*t every day just to sh*t on y’all stupid f**ks.”

Some of 6ix9ine’s fans chimed in on the situation. Ebro responded by calling him a pedestrian who doesn’t know sh*t.

Prior to his arrest, Tekashi 6ix9ine was the king of trolling online. He often taunted a number of rappers and it worked in his favor. Ebro believes the TMZ story is gearing up to place 6ix9ine right where he left off. It will be interesting to see once he is released.

Last week, 6ix9ine signed a deal worth $10 million with his former label 10K Projects, for an English and Spanish album. The guy who was once facing close to 57 years in prison for his unlawful activity with the Nine Tr3 bloods will allegedly be released before Christmas of this year.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé Rumored to Have Shot New Video in Los Angeles

Is it time for The Carters to release some new music on us? The Sun details Jay-Z and Beyoncé are adding to their list of collaborative hits and have created a new visual for it that is described as “steamy.”

“It’s one of her most extravagant and expensive shoots,” an insider said to The Sun.

“It was mostly filmed in LA and has a highly choreographed routine and also a steamy, romantic scene. She is working with some new creatives and is ready to change things up.”

The last time the two joined forces on a track was earlier this year when Hov appeared on Mrs. Carter The Gift album, which was inspired by The Lion King. Last year, they joined forces for the On the Run II Tour, which brought in $253.5 million.
