Kanye West Really Turns To Chicago, Shares Footage Of His Childhood Crib, Kim Kardashian & More

Kanye West

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is keeping his Instagram hand working overtime. The hip-hop star has returned to IG with fresh content straight from his Chicago hometown.

Over the past few hours, Yeezy has shared footage of himself and family going to his childhood home.

Since reactivating his Instagram page this week, Kanye has primarily shared posts of sketches.

Back in February, Kanye pulled the plug on IG and terminated his account.

Mercurial mad genius Kanye West has already deleted his Instagram account again after an all-too-brief return to praise his wife Kim Kardashian (and several other high-profile celebrity couples) on Valentine’s Day. Kanye originally deleted his accounts around eight months ago while recovering from an onstage meltdown during his Saint Pablo tour. The resulting public backlash and physical exhaustion of the tour caused him to retreat from public life while earning him a lawsuit and a very angry reference on Jay-Z’s Grammy-nominated album, 4:44.

A day prior, Kanye spent hours putting together pics some of the entertainment industry’s biggest current and former couples on his page.

He started with photos of Madonna and Sean Penn and Barack and Michelle Obama, and by the time he was finished, he had name-dropped Ellen DeGeneres, Sonny & Cher, John & Yoko, Dennis Rodman, David Bowie, Iman, JFK, Jackie O, Mick Jagger, Grace Jones, Serge Gainsbourg, Kid Rock, the dude from Sum 41, a fictional couple from “Sex & the City,” and so many others. The series ended, of course, with photos of West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. He’s since deactivated his account once more.) (Pitchfork)

Lauryn Hill is doing Lauryn Hill ish. In the latest drama, L Boogie has dropped Santigold and Nas from her tour, and didn’t really let people know about it, including the former. 

The Ms. Lauryn Hill The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill 20th Anniversary Tour was supposed to feature guests like the aforementioned as well as Dave Chapelle and SZA. However, the jig was up when a fan expressed disappointment that Santigold and Nas didn’t make the Portland date (Sept. 12).

Well, Santigold wasn’t about to be slandered and set the record straight that it wasn’t exactly her choice. “I’m sorry you paid to see us and we’re not there. That really bums me out. I’m also bummed that @MsLaurynHill and crew didn’t tell ppl why we’re not there. She took us off the bill,” tweeted Santigold.

Note that she @’d Ms. Hill, so the tea is scorching.

But there was more. She added, in response to another fan question: “Nope not sick. So sorry I wasn’t able to perform for you all. Note I saw from @MsLaurynHill Mgmt team read… “Due to production issues, The Miseducation 20th Anniversary Tour is unable to accommodate Santigold’s performance this evening.”

Oh word?

A day later (Sept. 14), Santigold shared she would no longer be on a number of dates, with only the cryptic “tour organizers’ decision” as an explanation.

The next date on the tour’s schedule is Sept. 18. at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

Machine Gun Kelly’s Goons Fade Actor Who Called Him a “P*ssy”

If you say something about Machine Gun Kelly to his face, he’ll have his goons handle it for him, allegedly. That’s what an actor who caught a vicious fade at the hands of the rapper’s entourage is claiming. 

Reports TMZ:

The violence started late Friday night in Atlanta … cops say MGK and his crew were in a restaurant bar when the actor named Gabriel “G-Rod” Rodriguez walked up to him with his phone out and started recording. In the video, obtained by TMZ, you see G-Rod point at MGK and say, “I’m gonna say it because it has to be said, you’re a pussy for going for family!” G-Rod tells us he was especially upset because he’s a husband and father of 3 kids.

Yeah, not a good convo starter.

In the video, MGK appears to shove G-Rod and turn the phone away. The video stops there, but G-Rod says that’s when 5 of MGK’s bodyguards swooped in and, as he puts it, MGK suddenly got tough and started challenging him. G-Rod claims Kelly shoved him. He says the bar manager immediately sided with the celebrity … and kicked out G-Rod.

But that was only the beginning of G-Rod’s struggle. He crossed paths with MGK again, and it didn’t go too well for him.

G-Rod says 2 hours later he was walking toward a Hampton’s Inn — across the street from the bar — when he noticed MGK and his crew hanging outside their tour bus. When they started barking at each other an Atlanta PD officer stepped in to cool things down, but G-Rod says MGK went off … calling the cop a “pussy” and “pig.” 

G-Rod says the officer did nothing in response — which pissed of G-Rod. He told us if a black or Latino person had said that to a cop … they’d immediately be tased or worse.

G-Rod says he went into the hotel lobby and MGK continued jawing at him … with all his bodyguards standing around him. G-Rod, who’s a pretty big dude, says he told them he’d fight each of them — one at a time — if they wanted a fight. Instead, he says the bodyguards all jumped him at once.

We’re not saying G-Rod deserved to get pummelled like a rag doll. But what did he expect calling a grown man, with goons, out of his name like that?

Just because the person is a celebrity, doesn’t mean you can not and will not catch the hands. Nevertheless, expect G-Rod to get a cash settlement out of court since there is footage of him catch the fade.
