Just when it looked like the Safaree and Erica Mena romance was headed to the edit pile in a Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood storyline, the couple are on Instagram looking stronger than ever. Although Mena went ham with the dramatics and trashed some roses Skaff Beezy sent to apologize for DM creeping, the loving birthday shoutout to her boo for his 38th birthday seems sweet and sincere.

From Mena’s IG:

Another candle on your cake, but it’s so much more than that. Another year of amazing memories, inside jokes, uncontrollable laughter, and a new year getting to call you my lover. I spent days upon days thinking about what in the world I could possibly do for you that would make this birthday amazing.

At the end of the lengthy, Mena dropped a not-so-subtle hint that she’s trying to bring a baby into the mix.

@safaree ♥ Another candle on your cake, but it's so much more than that. Another year of amazing memories, inside jokes, uncontrollable laughter, and a new year getting to call you my lover. I spent days upon days thinking about what in the world I could possibly do for you that would make this birthday amazing. I spent hours upon hours trying to figure out what in the world to get a man that gives me everything. Nothing could compare. Nothing was as sincere as me wishing you a happy day, not just today, but every day. It's simple, your happiness is my happiness. You came around and changed everything. You showed me I could be loved the way I love . We're still learning and growing as individuals while getting over past mistakes. We're learning that all we need is each other , all while making a family together . Overall: I am so lucky to have found a person like you in this crazy world, not many people are lucky in that way. I was already confident, goal driven, and lucky in life. I was already confident in myself, but you have made me really look at myself and love myself more than I already do. I was already goal driven, but you gave me more purpose ( Along with King) and determination to reach those goals, you gave me even more of a reason why. I was already lucky in this life, but you gave me someone to share that luck with and create our own. Thank you for helping me get by on those days I’m dying inside from missing my Daddy. Thank you for making me believe in the beautiful things in life, and thank you for being who you are. Happy birthday, my love. Here's to many more years of happiness together. P.S I have a feeling lol you make girls. Let’s make a Queen tonight with my eyes and your skin color. Seriously That’s Pure Perfection 😍

Safaree fired back with a loving salvo of his oww on his IG page:

Before I always had feelings of uncertainty and doubt in the back of my mind and it always made me an emotional wreck.. but this year I am happy with no doubts and so grateful for where I am in life and where I’m heading! In a world where people lose there life for noting i don’t take anything for granted and am super grateful. All I can say is Thank you mommy and Thank God and thank my beautiful wife to be for making me feel complete in everything i Do.

Salute to Safaree on his big day.

The fans asked and Cardi B has granted their wish. Trap’s Selena has finally dropped her long teased follow-up single.

As spotted on Complex back in December 2018 the Bronx bombshell shared an in-studio performance of an unreleased track. Wearing a “bute” little red dress and using a copious amount of finger guns, she proudly rapped “Cardi don’t need no more press!”. The brief clip took on a life of its’ own and naturally the Bardi Gang wanted those rachet feels asap. Five months later the completed song is here.

Earlier this week Belcalis started teasing the formal release with several film noire styled promotional pictures alerting the masses of the May 31 launch date. Well now “Press” is officially here.

PRESS DROPS AT MIDNIGHT!

A post shared by MOSTHATEDCARDI (@iamcardib) on

A little over the two-minute mark the new single finds Cardi in her comfort zone rapping on a mid-tempo bounce where she flips the title to the thirst of jealous females and the media who she has always had a love hate relationship with.

You can listen to “Press” below.

What glitters isn’t always gold. especially when it comes to social media. A style insider is facing prison time for running a swipes scam.

Bossip is reporting that a fashion blogger was arrested for racking up thousands of dollars worth of purchases on someone else’s good name. Using the handle @simplicityxstyle, Shaniqua Jordan has grown a credible online following by posting chic photos of herself sporting very well put together ensembles. Another ingredient to her sauce are the purposely obvious luxury brand logos.

Considering her profile is absent from any repeated wears a natural question to ask is where is she getting all this money? Well Connecticut police figured it out, allegedly.

Excuse me did you say 76 degrees ? Here I come …

A post shared by Shaniqua J. (@simplicityxstyle) on

In 2017 Jordan was arrested for using a Stamford woman’s debit card to make unlawful purchases. Apparently, the Brooklyn native racked up $3,300 dollars worth of goods without getting noticed. It wasn’t until she ordered an $18,000 Rolex watch from a retailer in California and asked it to be shipped to a FedEx facility near the victim’s household. The unusual request concerned the store thus they alerted local police. The lawmen asked they just ship an empty box and promptly arrested the scammer when she showed up to claim the delivery with a false driver’s license.

Louis Farrakhan Banned From Facebook & Instagram Alongside Right-Wing Nutballs

Nipsey Hussle's Celebration Of Life - Inside

Facebook and Instagram took measures to ban Min. Louis Farrakhan from its social media services, lumping him with a pair of Right-Wing extremists who also were banned. Joining Farrakhan on the outs with FB and IG are Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos.

Politico reports:

Facebook Thursday banned from its flagship social network and its subsidiary Instagram the Infowars site and its leader Alex Jones, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, saying their presence on the sites violated its policies against dangerous individuals and organizations.

“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”

Facebook last August cited violations of community standards in removing pages belonging to Jones and Infowars, notorious for peddling unfounded conspiracy theories. The action came amid a flurry of suspensions and content take-downs for Jones and Infowars, which were also booted from Google-owned YouTube, Twitter and other platforms.

The outlet adds that the services also banned Infowars contributor and “New Right” advocate Paul Joseph Watson, and right-wing activist Laura Loomer.

In 2018, Facebook removed a video of Farrakhan referring to Jews as “termites.”

Meek Mill Finally Returns To IG + Pays Respect To Fallen Hero

Meek Mill

Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill is back-back. The hip-hop star has returned to Instagram following a mini-hiatus from the social media giant.

On Tuesday, MM went to IG with a salute to late hip-hop artist Nipsey Hussle.

Last week, Meek hit up Twitter to explain why he suddenly deactivated his IG account.

Earlier this month, buzz developed about Meek pulling the plug on IG.

Meek Mill has had enough. The Philadelphia rapper is no stranger to social media causing tension in both his personal and professional life, and most recently, he decided to pull the plug on Instagram. Following his release from prison last April, Meek has seemingly found a balance between using his platform for interacting with fans, promoting his social justice initiative work and sharing some lighthearted personal thoughts. However, something may have struck a nerve over the weekend, leading him to deactivate his Instagram account. (REVOLT TV)

Last month, Meek Milly shared a few positive effects about Instagram going down worldwide for a few hours.

The issue seems to have spread world wide with social media users from all across Europe, America and Asia taking to Twitter to voice their frustration.

Twitter users complained that they were not able to access Facebook or Instagram on their desktops causing a disruption to their day.

The horror.

Peep some of the more poignant reactions to the minor inconvenience below. Another quick observation, social media slander is a universal language.

View this post on Instagram

A message from L O V E 🖤

A post shared by Diddy (@diddy) on

It’s no secret Diddy has been going through a lot as of late. He needs our support now more than ever.

After the mother of his children, Kim Porter, passed away, Diddy has been openly telling the public he messed up by never marrying her. The death of Nipsey Hussle has also affected the music mogul on a deep level, seeing as they worked closely together on the late rapper’s recent, and only, studio album Victory Lap.

In a new post, Diddy reveals he’s spent hours crying so he could “let that sh*t out.”

“I ain’t gonna lie, I been holding a lot of sh*t in lately. I just had a three-and-a-half-hour cry and let it all out — or as much as I could tap into,” he told his followers. “And that sh*t felt great. Sometimes you gotta let that sh*t out.”

Peep his full message up top and keep Diddy in your prayers.
