Drake Celebrates 35th Birthday with ‘Narcos’-Themed Party

The Boy turns 35.

Drake rounded up his closest friends while celebrating at his Narcos-themed birthday party, dubbed “Chico Amante” (translation lover boy). The star-studded bash was held at Goya Studios in Hollywood on Saturday night with guests including Offset, Jack Harlow, Future, 24kGoldn, and Drake’s father, Dennis Graham.

In a nod to the Netflix series, tables were covered with money and bricks of fake cocaine, while “Chico Amante” merch was handed out to partygoers. Drizzy dressed for the occasion in a cowboy hat and boots, fringe jacket, and denim shirt with bolo tie.

French Montana led the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday” to Drake as he was presented with a massive cake modeled after Pablo Escobar.

The Certified Lover Boy received gifts including an iced-out owl-shaped chain with a photo of him and Adonis on the back.

Nicki Minaj was unable to make the party, but she wished the “GOAT” on Instagram, along with Drake’s other famous friends including DJ Khaled and Giveon.

Boosie Badazz Goes on Homophobic Twitter Rant Aimed at Lil Nas X

boosie getty images.0 750x400 1

Lil Nas X took to his Instagram live to tell his fans about a collaboration with Boosie Badazz, whose reaction was not kind at all. 

[Editor’s note: The article below, which quotes Boosie Badazz’s comments directed at Lil Nas X, contains potentially distressing language about suicide.]

The controversial rapper said to his fans, “I been working on this song with Lil Boosie, bro. I have this song with Lil Boosie, gonna come out.” This live recording began circulating on the internet and everyone took it as Lil Nas X “Trolling” again. Boosie Badazz took the joke differently, going on a homophobic Twitter rant suggesting the “Old Town Road” rapper commit suicide.

“STOP TROLLING ME F—– LOL!! U A WHOLE B—- PLAYING WITH A GANGSTA SMH U CAN KEEP SUCKING D— N GETTIN F—ED N YOUR A– N PEACE N #uhateyourself I WOULD TOO IF I WAS YOU LOL NASx IF YOU #commitsuicide YOU WOULD DO THIS WORLD A HUGE FAVOR NOBODY WANTS U HERE,” Badazz tweeted.

The Tweet has since been deleted for violating Twitter’s terms of service. Lil Nas X, who was recently honored as The Trevor Project’s Suicide Prevention Advocate of the Year, was yet to respond to Boosie Badazz. Now trending on Twitter because of Boosie’s hateful comments, Lil Nas X instead used his platform to tweet, “i am truly saddened. i have never been so mortified in my life. i can’t believe disney channel has yet to play halloween town this entire october.”

“Discrimination around sexuality and gender identity is still very real, and our community deserves to feel supported and totally free to be themselves,” Lil Nas X told listeners back in September when he was honored by the Trevor Project, which provides suicide prevention resources for LGBTQ+ youth and crisis interventions. “I often get messages from fans telling me about their struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts, and it made me realize that this was something bigger than myself. If using my voice and expressing myself in my music can help even one kid out there who feels alone, then it was all worth it.”

Boosie Badazz is known for speaking negatively about Lil Nas X several times over the past few months. In September, Lil Nas X stated the comments did not have any effect on him.

“I was listening to Boosie in the club the other day. I don’t really care. Honestly, I wish they didn’t say it, I guess,” Lil Nas said of the “Wipe Me Down” rapper during an appearance on The Breakfast Club. “But I like the music, I’m gonna listen to the music. If somebody got beef with me, that doesn’t mean I got beef with them.”

When asked if he would respond to the hateful messages, Lil Nas X stated, “Only if I have something really witty.”

Lil Nas X seems unbothered by the constant remarks made by Boosie Badazz on social media. Boosie, on the other hand, had his Instagram removed several times this year. At the beginning of October, he was removed from upcoming tour dates following an onstage brawl, and the rapper spent a day in jail as a result.

Boosie Badazz Unleashes Homophobic Rant on Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X and Boosie Badazz continue to be at war.

While on Instagram Live on Saturday morning, Nas trolled his followers by suggesting that he had a collaboration with Boosie despite their well-documented history.

“I’ve been working on this song with Lil Boosie, bro,” he said. “I have this song with Lil Boosie, gonna come out.”

Nas’ suggestion that they had a song together was enough to send Boosie off the handle. Taking to Twitter, the Baton Rouge rapper responded with a vile homophobic tirade against the “Industry Baby” hitmaker.

“STOP TROLLING ME F***OT LOL ‼ U A WHOLE BITCH PLAYING WITH A GANGSTA SMH U CAN KEEP SUCKING D**K N GETTIN F**KED N YOUR ASS N PEACE N #uhateyourself I WOULD TOO IF I WAS YOU LOL NASx,” he wrote.

During his unhinged rant, Boosie even went so far as to suggest that Nas kill himself. “IF YOU #commitsuicide YOU WOULD DO THIS WORLD A HUGE FAVOR 🙌🏾 NOBODY WANTS U HERE,” he added.

He spewed even more hate in his since-deleted tweets, writing “STOP PLAYING WITH THE STRAIGHT #F***OT LOL” and “#thinkaboutit NOBODY WANTS YOU HERE ‼

Later in the day, Nas appeared to respond to Boosie’s offensive comments in his typical trolling way.

“i am truly saddened. i have never been so mortified in my life,” he wrote before making light of the situation. “i can’t believe disney channel has yet to play halloween town this entire october.”

When recently asked about Boosie’s repeated attacks on him, Nas said he wasn’t fazed by it.

“I was listening to Boosie in the club the other day. I don’t really care. Honestly, I wish they didn’t say it, I guess,” he told “The Breakfast Club” in September. “But I like the music, I’m gonna listen to the music. If somebody got beef with me, that doesn’t mean I got beef with them.”

Meanwhile, Lil Nas X earned his third No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 this week with “Industry Baby” featuring Jack Harlow.

ICYMI: Cardi B Set for Criminal Court Hearing on Oct. 25

Cardi B Bathroom Selfie

The fall out of a 2018 strip club brawl has yet to end for Cardi B. The superstar rapper will be headed to Queens Criminal Court on Oct. 25 for a hearing.

CBS 2 News states, in 2019, Cardi entered a plea of not guilty to 12 counts of felony for attempted assault and a charge for reckless endangerment.

Cardi is accused of orchestrating the attack of two bartenders at a strip club in Queens. The Wattley sisters state Cardi and two of her friends threw glass bottles and drinks at them during a fight. One of the sisters says her head was slammed on the bar.

The attack was stated to have been coordinated on social media and was orchestrated due to one of the sisters allegedly having an affair with her husband Offset.

Cardi faces four years in prison if convicted.

ICYMI: Chris Brown Calls Kyrie Irving a “Hero” for Not Getting Vaccinated

Chris Brown Says He's 'Single With a Girlfriend' on Respectfully Justin Premiere

Kyrie Irving has been a hot topic across social media for days after the Brooklyn Nets dismissed him from the team for not complying with COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Critics of Irving include everybody from Magic Johnson to Stephen A. Smith. Chris Brown is on the other side and sees the superstar point guard as a hero.

Chris Breezy hit Instagram and shared a picture of Irving and would share his opinion.

“The real hero! I stand with my brother,” Brown wrote.. “Whoever don’t like it … go live your damn life. It’s his choice and a damn good one. Always in my brother’s corner.”

Last week, ESPN reported Nets general manager Sean Marks announced Irving has been sent away from the team until he decides to be fully vaccinated.

“My job here is to make what we deem as the best decision and best choices for the organization moving ahead as a whole, ” Marks said on Tuesday. “They’re not always ones that are going to be met with open arms and a thumbs-up. These are hard decisions. Just like I’m sure it wasn’t easy for Kyrie either to have to make that [decision] to not be around his teammates.”

Last month, the New York City vaccine mandate went into effect for anyone wishing to attend or play in events at Barclays Center or Madison Square Garden. Missing those games would drop Irving only being available for 43 regular-season games.

“Ultimately, this decision was Joe Tsai and myself, and this decision came down to what we felt was the right move for the organization at this time,” Marks said.

ICYMI: Yaya Mayweather Facing Up to 20 Years in Prison for Assault

Yaya Mayweather Says She's "The Happiest I've Ever Been" After Becoming a Mother

Yaya Mayweather joins Cardi B as public figures who are facing years behind bars. TheJasmineBrand reports Mayweather is facing 20 years behind bars for the stabbing of her NBA Youngboy’s baby mother, Lapattra Lashai Jacobs. The attack on Jacobs resulted in multiple serious injuries.

This past January, Mayweather and Youngboy had their first child together. The baby boy was the seventh overall for Youngboy. Before the birth of their son, the couple called it quits. Since then, Yaya seemed to be hung up over the rapper for a while. However, the boxing legend’s daughter took to her Instagram live to share that she’s the “happiest she’s ever been before.” Additionally, she admits that she “loves being a mother.”

In a recording of the Instagram live, Yaya looks visibly happy and radiant. While gushing about being a mother, Kentrall Jr. can be heard cooing in the background. “How’s Mom life? It’s amazing so good I love being a mother,” Yaya raved while answering a fan question.

Continuing on, she goes on to say “I’m honestly the happiest I’ve ever been like ever, it’s just amazing.” Pausing for a moment, she reads through comments on the live; choosing to ignore the negativity people projected in the live stream.

Youngboy is currently behind bars himself as his bond was denied and he will remain in jail until his trial, according to Complex. He is considered too dangerous to be released following his multiple charges of gun possession in Louisiana.

“[YoungBoy] is a danger to the community, [and] no condition or combination of conditions will reasonably assure the safety of any other person and the community,” the court documents read.

During the bond hearing, Judge Scott D. Johnson highlighted the past crimes committed by YoungBoy and the chase he led police on prior to his arrest.

In March, YoungBoy was transferred to FBI custody after the LAPD pulled him over. LAPD and federal authorities attempted to pull over NBA YoungBoy on an outstanding federal warrant, leading to a pursuit before YoungBoy hopped out and attempted to run from officers. A K-9 unit assisted in finding the star. Inside the car that YoungBoy abandoned was a firearm.

ICYMI: Trial Date Set For R. Kelly’s Federal Child Pornography Case In Chicago

R. Kelly in Court federal child pornography

R. Kelly is set to go on trial in his federal child pornography case in Chicago next summer.

A judge set an August 1st, 2022, trial date for Kelly’s case during a status hearing yesterday. The hearing was held more than three weeks after a jury convicted the singer in a separate racketeering case in Brooklyn’s federal court.

R. Kelly appeared virtually Wednesday morning with lawyer Steve Greenberg, who will continue representing him in the Chicago case.

According to ABC7 Chicago:

“The Chicago case, unfortunately for Robert, is far more serious,” Greenberg said. “Because it involves child pornography charges and charges that he obstructed justice in his earlier trial from, from the 2000s which was in state court here. The Chicago case actually carries much more severe penalties than the New York case, but we’re gonna fight for….we know the evidence in that case, we’re prepared we could go to trial tomorrow.”

YouTube deletes R. Kelly’s music from their platform following his guilty sex crimes verdict.

The Chicago native, who was found guilty September 24th, faces between 10 years and life in prison for his crimes.

Prosecutors presented searing testimonies from accusers to paint a picture of more than two decades of physical, sexual and emotional abuse by Robert Kelly. His sentencing for the Brooklyn verdict is set for May 4, 2022.

In Chicago, Kelly is facing charges of federal child pornography and obstruction of justice. There’s also separate aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges in Cook County, Illinois. The convicted racketeer has as an additional criminal case in Minnesota.

Despite being found guilty on federal sex crimes last month R. Kelly’s music sales have jumped 517-percent.
