T.I. Says No One Can Outrap Him

T.I. is laying claim to the throne.

The King of the South went on Instagram Live to declare himself as one of the best to do it.

“Ain’t nobody fu**in’ with me, ni**a, none of ’em,” said Tip, who said that his peers are afraid to even collaborate with him. “To the point where they don’t even wanna be on the same record as me, ni**a, because they know they can’t f**k with me.”

A confident Tip went on to boast that no one has outrapped him on a record. “You ain’t never heard me on no record with nobody and they dusted me,” he continued. “It ain’t never happened, ni**a.”

“Ain’t nobody do this shit better than me, man,” he added. “Been doing this shit since I was 9 years old.”

When it comes to the competition, T.I. claims there is only a select group of MCs who are in his league, including JAY-Z, Nas, Lil Wayne, and Kanye West. “That’s who you need, JAY, Nas, Wayne, Ye… Pusha T,” he said.

Not everyone was in agreement though as fans debated Tip’s controversial claim. “We had the weakest verse on Swagga Like Us, his own damn song,” commented one person, noting T.I.’s 2008 collaboration with JAY-Z, T.I., Kanye, and Lil Wayne.

Another person argued that André 3000 “murdered” Tip on their 2012 collaboration “Sorry.”

T.I. may be thinking of retirement. Last year, he announced his “final album” Kill the King, the follow-up to 2020’s The L.I.B.R.A.

Amber Rose Addresses Resurfaced ‘Kartrashians’ Tweet

Amber Rose is distancing herself from an old tweet she made about Kanye West and the Kardashians.

Ye’s ex took to Instagram on Sunday (Jan. 16) after the 2015 tweet resurfaced amid the drama surrounding Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s divorce.

“@kanyewest I’ll leave that up to the Kartrashians to humiliate u when they’re done with u,” Amber wrote in the original tweet.

After the tweet went viral, the SlutWalk founder responded by disavowing the “immature” comment she made about Kim and her sisters.

“Man f**k that old ass tweet,” she wrote in her Instagram Story. “I never got an apology for his ’30 showers’ comment but f**k it. I started my SlutWalk and helped millions of women around the world stand up for themselves against slut shaming so something amazing came out of it.”

The mother of two apologized to the Kardashians, writing, “Kim nor her sisters deserved that tweet and y’all shouldn’t co-sign it either. Sh*t was old and immature of me to involve the KarDASHians in the mess HE made.”

“Moving forward….Learn from my mistakes,” she continued. “We all have kids and family’s life is hard enough right now for a lot of ppl. I just want to spread love and positivity.”

During a 2015 interview with “The Breakfast Club,” Ye dissed his ex by saying he had to “take 30 showers” before he got with his now-estranged wife.

Kim and Amber have seemingly been on good terms for a while now. In 2016, they squashed their beef and posted a selfie together.

Today In Hip Hop History: Paramount Pictures Released ‘Juice’ In Theaters 30 Years Ago

Screen Shot 2022 01 17 at 11.15.23 AM

On this date in 1992, Paramount Pictures presented the highly anticipated hood flick Juice, which stars a still rising rap star by the name of Tupac Shakur, who plays a crooked crimie from Uptown by the name of “Bishop”.

His co-star, Omar Epps(Higher Learning, In Too Deep), plays a local DJ with industry potential named “GQ”, alongside Jermaine “Huggy” Hopkins(Lean On Me) and Khalil Kain, who all form a loosely knit crew of truants who are headed in the wrong direction.

This movie was very instrumental in bringing Hip Hop artists onto the silver screen, with cameo appearances from Treach of Naughty By Nature, Queen Latifah, EPMD’s DJ Scratch and Special Ed. Juice also helped to introduce the soundtrack as a way to market movies for larger budgets.

For those who never took notice, it wasn’t until after ‘Pac made everyone love to hate his character Bishop that Shakur’s run-ins with the law became more frequent and his “Thug Life” persona became more noticeable and for its own intent, purposeful. Many will say that it was life imitating art. Some will say that this was the real Tupac; he was just being filmed.

DaniLeigh and Her Baby Daughter Test Positive For Covid

danileigh dababy baby covid

R&B singer DaniLeigh and her 5-month-old baby girl she shares with Dababy, tested positive for Covid. DaniLeigh took to Twitter this morning with the announcement and warning to others to stay protected from the virus.

“My baby and I have COVID we’re ok and will be ok … appreciate prayers stay masked up and inside y’all..” The “Easy” singer tweeted.

The 26-year-old singer welcomed her first baby, a lil bebe girl back in August of last year. She shares the child with Charlotte rapper DaBaby, making him a dad to four.

This news follows reports of assault charges that were filed on DaniLeigh when DaBaby accused the singer of striking him. An altercation that took place at the “Suge” rappers NC home surfaced online and the police got involved.

No word if DaniLeigh and her baby were exposed to the Omicron variant or not. The Omicron variant is highly transmissible but less severe than other variants. We hope they get well soon.

[WATCH] Kanye West On Punching Fan: That Blue Covid Mask Ain’t Stop That Knockout

Screen Shot 2022 01 17 at 10.52.44 AM

Kanye West has been through the media ringer since 2022 rang in, but the fashion and music mogul could potentially be facing a judge after allegedly punching out an autograph seeking fan in Los Angeles last week.

Even though ‘Ye is being investigated by the LAPD for knocking down 40-year-old Justin Poplawski with punches to the head and neck, Kanye sat down in an exclusive interview with Hollywood Unlocked‘s Jason Lee and says that the John Hancock seeking vet gave him “attitude” after Yeezy refused his request.

“It was 3 a.m. in front of [Soho] Warehouse,” Kanye says. “I’m saying, ‘You don’t know what I’m dealing with right now.’ I just finished these two songs, I came from the studio … And this dude, he just had this real attitude, like, ‘Whatchu gonna do?’”

He later adds, “I’ma just tell you, that blue COVID mask ain’t stop that knockout.”

In the interview, Yeezy doesn’t admit to hitting Poplawski, but he does admit that he was upset after his cousins came back with bad news about parenting issues between him and Kim Kardashian.

Kanye West’s Hollywood Unlocked interview came just days before the Chicago rap icon was forced to crash his daughter Chicago’s 4th birthday party this past Saturday(January 15). He was denied the location of the party until Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott sent him the address so that he could celebrate with his daughter.

Aaliyah Fans Highlight the Lack of Women Features in Forthcoming Album

Aaliyah's Mother Postpones Day of Remembrance ‘Due To The Behavior Of An Individual’ Who Visited Her ‘Resting Place To Promote A Book’

Aaliyah’s posthumous album Unstoppable is expected to be released sometime this month. Even though fans should be happy with all the new music coming their way, the feeling is more of disappointment rather than excitement.

According to HipHopDX the late singer’s uncle, Barry Hankerson, was recently a guest on The Geno Jones Show, where he spoke about the forthcoming album and its guest features. According to Hankerson, the album will have appearances by The WeekndDrakeSnoop DoggFuture, and Ne-Yo, and the estate feels confident with this output.

“One of the songs that’s out now is doing incredibly well. And that’s the song that she did with Weeknd,” Hankerson said. “Because of that success, we think it’ll only get better with people such as Ne-Yo and Snoop Dogg, Future, and Drake — one of her biggest fans. Those are the features that’ll be on the record and that’ll be out in January.”

Aaliyah’s fans instantly took to social media to voice their opinions after the statement by Geno was released. Fans ridiculed the late singer’s estate for allegedly wasting a golden opportunity in making a great album.

One of the biggest issues people have with Unstoppable is the lack of R&B representation on the album. Fans do not want an Aaliyah project to sound too Hip Hop, and they want an album with female artists as opposed to the feature list being male-dominated.

“Imagine having the opp to create a new Aaliyah album with an entire generation of women that were directly influenced (Ciara, Teyana, Tinashe, Normani, Jhene, CxH, H.E.R., Sevyn, etc.) but instead we get Snoop Dogg, Neyo, Future, CB, a weird Weeknd song…yikes,” a fan tweeted.

Despite fan reactions, Barry Hankerson isn’t giving in. During an August interview with Billboard, Hankerson broke down the plans for all of Aaliyah’s releases and how he’s living with all the hate that’s being thrown his way.
