One of the most complicated timepieces ever produced, it is known as the world’s greatest mechanical strikework marvel. The Roc Nation family is currently in the city’s Barker Hanger to watch the rap mogul present the medical center’s “Spirit Of Life Award” to his longtime friend “Big Jon” Platt. The award is the highest honor that the leading cancer research and treatment center bestows to recognize a philanthropic leader in music, film or entertainment. This year’s award will be presented to Platt, who is the Chairman and CEO of Warner/Chappell Music. Platt serves as a board member of the Songwriters’ Hall Of Fame, the Living Legends Foundation, and the Motown Museum; and has launched a scholarship program which awards scholarships to high school students from his hometown. Platt has been the longtime publishing agent for Shawn Carter, entering the role during the release period of Reasonable Doubt when he helped Jaÿ signed with EMI Publishing. At the time Platt had just created a system in which producers foot the entire bill for samples they use in his clients’ work—the traditional model had the producer and songwriter both share the licensing expense. When Jon left EMI in June 2012, he began to work overtime to bring Jay over to Warner/Chappell with him. In February 2013 they finalized a deal that meant W/C would administer the copyrights of both his own songs and those on the music publishing roster of Roc Nation. #JAYZ @vegas_jones @kodaklens

Lost One: Jay-Z & Beyoncé Cut Ties With Kanye & Kim Because Of Trump Support?

Don’t get your hopes up for Watch The Throne 2. Rumors are that The Carters have cancelled The Wests for good.

As per Hot New Hip Hop several media outlets are saying that Jay-Z and Beyoncé have cut all ties with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. The reason you ask? Donald Trump. The speculation originally stems from an exclusive report by Radar Online. The gossip site claims they spoke to a source close to the power couple who said they are “sick” of KimYe’s ongoing support of the President.

Their source spilled more tea regarding the sunken place rapper’s recent antics and clout chasing. “They are outraged over Kanye’s recent political rants. They think Kanye is a disgrace, and is only doing this for attention. Beyoncé and Jay-Z know that Kanye is seeing a future in politics, but they feel that they cannot associate themselves with them from this point forward. They want nothing to do with either one of them.”

This is not the first time they have reportedly put Kanye and Kim on ice since Jay and Bey skipped out on their wedding in 2014. In November of 2016 Yeezy went on one of his most infamous tirades ever essentially confirming the rumors of a rough patch with his former big brother and big sister.

Back in September ‘Ye hinted that he and Hov would soon link up to a sequel to their 2011 Throne album but at this rate it looks like a Neveruary release date.

50 Cent Flips Switch On Hot 97, Pete Davidson Covers Up Ariana Grande Tattoo, JAY-Z & Beyoncé Done-Done W/ KimYe?

50 Cent

Working Wednesday. We’re putting in that work-work today SOHH why not get things going with 50 Cent flipping the switch on Hot 97? Speaking of switching things up, how about “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson covering up his Ariana Grande-inspired tattoo? On a slightly random note, have JAY-Z and Beyoncé completely cut off KimYe? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Done-Done

Is 50 Cent trolling or is he really done messing with Hot 97? Turns out an issue with Hot 97 radio personality Ebro Darden has him showing full support to crosstown rival station Power 105.1? 50 Cent’s Twitter is on it:

Is 50 Cent going too hard? Do you think this is real? Could this all be a super PR stunt? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Gone Girl

Is there trouble in paradise for Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande? The engaged couple have really stayed out of the public spotlight notably once Grande’s ex-boyfriend Mac Miller died in California from a reported overdose. But now the Internet has spotted Davidson donning a covered up Grande-inspired tat on his neck. Page Six is on it:

Pete Davidson has done away with his “Dangerous Woman”-inspired neck tattoo. What once was Ariana Grande‘s famous bunny ears and mask combination is now a large heart with a small “A” next to it, but a source close to the couple told Page Six that this isn’t cause for concern about their relationship status. Our source told us that the “Saturday Night Live” star had it transformed to match a tattoo Grande had inked on her body. It’s unclear where Grande’s giant heart is located. (Page Six)

Could this be for a movie role? Think they’re done-done? Should fans start panicking? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Cancelled

Have JAY-Z and Beyoncé really cut off KimYe? The latest rumor is the couple aren’t messing with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian – at all. RadarOnline is on it:

The Carters Reportedly Want Zero Association with KimYe

Remember when Kanye West tweeted that Throne 2 was coming? Yeah, don’t hold your breath for that to come if it has to include JAY-Z. The Daily Mail reports Hov and Beyoncé have are “severing all ties” that lead to a relationship with Kanye West, in addition to Kim Kardashian.

Jay and Bey’s pullout from any interaction with the West-Kardashian union comes from their support and interaction with President Donald Trump. The mail stated the two believe that Ye’s political views are “bullshit” citing outrage at his latest political statements.

Recently, Kanye West has ruffled a ton of feathers. He placed the MAGA hat back on his head, made a controversial statement about the 13th Amendment, doubled down on his Donald Trump support and will be meeting with the President over lunch.

The Kardashians were on hand at the On The Run II tour when it swept through the West Coast but there were no known reports of any interaction with The Carters.

Don’t look for any reunions between these couples anytime soon.
