In 2014, Rowdy Rebel and Bobby Shmurda added momentum to their GS9 crew’s rising popularity with the buzzing single, “Computers.” The track features a menacing beat by Lil Chriiz, and came on the heels of Bobby’s viral hit, “Hot Nigga.” While “Computers” didn’t make an impact on the Billboard charts at the time, it’s a […]
New Orleans Police state the shooting happened around 1:35 a.m. and Greatness was killed by a single bullet.
A friend of the late rapper told New Orleans Eyewitness News the shooting was unexpected, “Dude wasn’t into nothing but his music and his daughter … Wasn’t into nothing else man.”
Two suspects are being investigated. The car owned by Young Greatness was also stolen from the scene.
Young Greatness made a splash with his 2015 single “Moolah,” which was RIAA certified Gold. “Moolah” was released on Quality Control Records but was most recently signed to Cash Money Records.
He was 34-years-old at the time of death.

Floyd Mayweather has found himself in the middle of a nasty custody battle regarding his 17-year-old son and the mother of the boy. In new court filings, Josie Harris wants her son to return to Los Angeles from Las Vegas, citing that the boy is exposed to strippers and his father’s high-flying lifestyle but Mayweather is preparing his own counter.
The Blast reports:
Mayweather’s baby mama, Josie Harris, recently went to court and filed emergency documents, asking a judge to force The Champ to return their 17-year-old son, Zion, from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.
Harris, who has physical custody of their son, claims Zion recently fled her home in Valencia, CA and took off with Mayweather. She says the boy is in his last year of high-school, and is putting his graduation in jeopardy by blowing off class.
She also says the boxer’s lifestyle is not appropriate for a 17-year-old child, especially when he “needs to focus on finishing school,” and is hopefully preparing for college.
Harris points out that her ex is the owner and operator of a strip club in Vegas, The Girl Collection, and is “rarely home to personally supervise the children.” She says he throws “$2 million parties” and frequents strip clubs, and included social media posts from Mayweather of himself hanging out with strippers as examples in her court filing.
The outlet adds that Mayweather isn’t allowing his son to be around the dancers but instead he’s facilitating meetings with the likes of Warren Buffet, Kobe Bryant and more. In a court filing, Mayweather claims his son will flee his mother’s home if he’s returned and will leave in the streets. Because of this, Mayweather is taking care of his son for safety reasons.
Mayweather also cites that he lives a sober lifestyle and seems to insinuate that Harris does not do the same, thus creating an unsafe environment for the teen.
This matter will surely develop over time.

I knew when I met you at 16, it was something about you about us, I didn’t want to mess up. You stayed my friend even tho we both wanted to be more… We was scared. I didn’t want things to go left. We remained really good friends as we watch each other go through failed relationships. Finally after 3 years we decided to take a step out on fate, and date. When I got pregnant with Kiy I was so scared, you told me “I got you, I got us.” I dropped out of college, moved out my moms, stayed in Yg’s garage for a while (yup, that’s what love will do), then to your moms, until we got enough money to get our apt. No matter how much I pressured you “i don’t need a ring, let’s go to the court house” you never folded. Constantly reminding me that “That’s not what we doing, when I do it, I want to do it on my own cause that’s what u deserve” THIS moment was everything. Our kids reaction, our family and friends… I couldn’t have dreamed of a better moment. I love you. Thank you for always being a man of your word! We aren’t perfect by any means, some days we can’t stand each other but the love has NEVER left, 8 years I’m still in love, still will hop out of a trunk on that ass if u think about not talking to me (true story, ask Yg! I had them niggas shook) Moral of the story I’m so excited for this next chapter! I’m forever grateful and honored to be by your side for the rest of our life! @mustard (Thank you for always letting me be me and never trying to change who I am as a person)

You can now call her Hennessy with the tea.
Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have had beef for quite some time. One of the fued’s most notable moments came at New York’s fashion week. According to the Bronx nature, Nicki spoke ill words about Cardi’s daughter, Kulture. The footage from the function shows both emcees engaging in a possible altercation, along with other entourage members and bodyguards. Afterwards, Bardi was seen leaving the function, with one heel, a ripped dress and a huge knot on the side of her forehead.
Not too long ago, the “Money” artist explained that she had been receiving alarming texts from a plethora of unknown numbers. Well, Bardi’s sister, Hennessy Carolina, recently dug deeper into the specifics of the matter and defended her sister.
“Ya asking why I’m beefing with a fan base, but ya not asking why someone with so much influence would use their influence to manipulate their fans to spread so much negativity and hate!” said the fashion and television personality. Hennessy alludes to the fact that Nicki is responsible for the threatening texts.
“She leaked my sister’s number to her fan pages the same shit she did to Mariah Lynn,” she said. “Not one of you is waking up to death threats every day, made up stories that can effect my real life and real relationships.”
The post has since been deleted by Hennessy.
The beef between the two is bad enough for women in Hip-Hop. We rarely get to experience a female rapper rise to the top like both of these women have done. When threats began to occur, the feud has reached its peak and should now cease. We hope that the beef can be resolved sooner than later.
