The Millenium Tour, featuring B2K, Pretty Ricky, and Lloyd, hasn’t even been going on for a week and B2K member Raz B announced that he’s leaving the tour. According to the singer, he says that former manager and cousin Chris Stokes’ presence around the tour makes him uneasy, this after he accused the mogul of sexually abusing him and others in 2007, but it appears Raz B is going to continue on the road.

In a video clip shared by The Shade Room, Raz B speaks to his fans and says that because of Stokes that he doesn’t “feel safe” and made a plea to his B2K bandmate Omarion that he’s willing to have a conversation about staying on board but seems committed to leaving.

“Raz B is officially off the tour. I don’t feel safe because I feel like Chris Stokes is around. So guess what? I’m off the tour. Good luck to everybody,” Raz B says.

He adds in the clip that he’ll stay on board if Omarion wills it so but also hints at willing to do a tell-all about Stokes in the same vein as Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly. In an Instagram story post from this morning (March 13), Raz B announced in so many words that he’s going to remain on the tour.

Russell Westbrook Offers Jazz Fan & Wife The Hands, Twitter Chimes In #RussellWestbrook

Oklahoma City Thunder v Utah Jazz

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook has the reputation of being an intense player and that passion was on display Monday night (March 11). During his team’s visit to the Utah Jazz’s home court, Westbrook got into it with a fan who he claims used racist taunts which prompted him to threaten the man and his wife with the hands.

As reported by NBA.com, the fan allegedly said something to Westbrook to the effect of “get down on your knees like you used to” which certainly are fighting words. The All-Star responded with the fire as expected.

“I promise you. You think I’m playing? I swear to god. I swear to god. I’ll f*ck you up. You and your wife, I’ll f*ck you up. Nah, f*ck that! Nah, f*ck that! I promise you. On everything I love. Everything I love, I promise you. I swear to god,” Westbrook was heard saying.

After the game, Westbrook addressed the matter and said that if he to do it all over again, he would.

From NBA.com:

“For me, I’m just not going to continue to take disrespect for my family,” said Westbrook after the game, per ESPN’s Tim MacMahon. “I just think there’s got to be something done. There’s got to be some consequences for those type of people that come to the game just to say and do whatever they want to say. I don’t think it’s fair to the players — not just to me, but I don’t think it’s fair to the players.

“And if I had to do it again, I would say the same exact thing, because I truly will stand up for myself, for my family, for my kids, for my wife, for my mom, for my dad every single time. I expect anybody else to do the same. So that’s kind of where I’m at with the whole situation. As for beating up his wife, I have never put my hand on a woman; I never will. Never been in any domestic violence before. Never have before, but once he said the comment, his wife repeated the same thing to me as well. So that’s kind of how that started.

Yikes.

Twitter had plenty to say about the exchange and we caught the reactions below.

YesJulz Came For Karen Civil & Scottie Beam, Gets Gathered By Stringy Ponytail

It’s the year 2019 and, unfortunately, YesJulz is still a thing. The so-called influencer and brand took shots at Karen Civil and Scottie Beam and that got the Internets to gathering up the culture vulture by her stringy ponytail.

YesJulz Goddard was a guest on the Easily Offended podcast with Murda Mook, ItsBizKit, and Movie Matt. In a widely-shared snippet of the podcast episode, YesJulz tries to explain the reasoning behind her asking to wear a shirt that featured the “N-Word” on the front and then demanded her respect for bringing Rolling Loud to prominence among her other claims to fame.

In that snippet, YesJulz was asked about who has been attacking her credibility and hse immediately went to the aforementioned Karen Civil and Scottie Beam, both who came ready with their own manner of smoke. YesJulz didn’t back down from the heat but it isn’t looking too sweet for her out here in these Twitter streets.

Check out the reactions to YesJulz mentioning Karen Civil and Scottie Beam by name below.

Canibus famously rapped on his LL Cool J takedown track “Second Round K.O.” that the “greatest rapper of all time died on March 9th” in reference to the late, great Biggie Smalls. Fans on Twitter are currently honoring the legendary Notorious B.I.G. and made “#RIPBigge” a top trending topic.

The Notorious B.I.G., born Christopher Wallace on May 21, 1972, was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting on this day in 1997 after attending a star-studded party in Los Angeles. To this day, police have yet to solve the case and speculation about who ordered the hit on one of the game’s biggest rappers of the time is still high.

Although his career was cut far too short, The Notorious B.I.G. left behind a potent and resonant legacy. We’ve collected fans online praising Biggie Smalls below.

R. Kelly’s ‘CBS This Morning’ Interview Airs, Twitter Gets R&Pee Singer Out The Paint

Gayle King interviews R. Kelly

Source: CBS News screenshot / CBS News screenshot

Tuesday night (March 5), teaser clips and images of R. Kelly‘s CBS This Morning interview with Gayle King hit the online airwaves and reactions were swift and passionate. This morning (March 6), the interview aired in full and Twitter is getting the Pied Piper of R&Pee out the paint.

Kelly sat down with King for 80 minutes yesterday and at one point, Kelly tearfully defended his actions while saying his accusers are lying on him in his words.

“I’m very tired of all of the lies. I’ve been hearing things, and you know, and seeing things on the blogs, and you know, you know, I’m just tired,” Kelly said early on. He was then asked by King by which lies caused him the most distress and he ran down a list of things.

“Oh my God. Um — all of them, got little girls trapped in the basement… helicopters over my house trying to rescue someone that doesn’t need rescuing because they’re not in my house,” Kelly added. “Handcuffing people, starving people. I have a harem, what you call it – a cult. I don’t even really know what a cult is. But I know I don’t have one.”

Right.

The trending topic #rkellyinterview took off this morning and boy, are they cooking R. Kelly right now. We’ve got some of the reactions below.

White GOP Congressman Slammed For Trotting Out Black Trumper During Cohen Hearing

Former Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Testifies Before House Oversight Committee

Source: Chip Somodevilla / Getty

GOP Congressman Mark Meadows went to the “I have Black friends” trope during the Hosue Oversight Committee hearing with Michael Cohen. Meadows trotted out a Black employee of President Donald Trump in a bid to prove the former business mogul isn’t racist to which Rep. Rashida Tlaib called out as just that, causing Meadows to have a fit.

Raw Story writes:

“Just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them does not mean they aren’t racist and…the fact someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee, is alone racist in itself,” Tlaib said during her opening remarks.

Meadows immediately began trying to interrupt the Palestinian-American congresswoman and later brought up that he has nieces and nephews who are “people of color.”

The outlet noted that Rep. Meadows has a history of saying questionably racist remarks, including the tired birther argument regarding President Barack Obama.

Twitter threw some jabs towards Meadows’ direction after he demanded Tlaib’s comments be struck from the record although chairman Rep. Elijah Cummings allowed her to continue despite frequent interruptions.

Tommy Ain’t My Boy: De La Soul’s Back Catalog Coming To Streaming Services But At A Cost

Celebrities Visit SiriusXM - February 26, 2019

Source: Roy Rochlin / Getty

Q-Tip famously rapped the iconic line, “Industry rule number four-thousand-and-eighty/Record company people are shady” and De La Soul has learned that lesson firsthand this week. Taking to social media, the Plugs let fans know that while their back catalog will be coming to streaming services, the royalty splits will be quite imbalanced in favor of the label.

On Monday (Feb. 25), the De La Soul Instagram page had news for hopeful fans that seemed to signal that their older albums will be available to all DSPs soon.

“Dear fans…just got off the phone with Tommy Boy Records…negotiations (or lack there of) to release our catalog on all streaming platforms..uh oh,” read the post.

It was followed today (Feb. 26) with a post of both good and bad news depending on where one stands.

“Dear Fans…The music WILL be released digitally,” the post opens. It continued with, “After 30 long years of good music and paying their debt to Hip Hop, De La Soul unfortunately, will not taste the fruit of their labor. Your purchases will roughly go 90% Tommy Boy, 10% De La. Thank you. Sincerely Yours, #thephantom2milliondollardebt.”

While the release of the music is a music lover’s dream, the fact that the split is unfair has some fans reacting on Twitter and we have those reactions below.

In a cryptic tweet, Solange Knowles has social media ablaze after announcing her appearance on one of the most popular social media sites from the early 2000s. The singer has shared news of a BlackPlanet takeover with some fans speculating this is part of a new album rollout.

Owned by Urban One Inc., the largest Black-owned media company in the nation, BlackPlanet got its start in 2001 as a precursor to similar online gathering spaces such as Myspace and the like. With its specific focus towards Black audiences, BlackPlanet helped spark the birth of MiGente and AsianAve although BP remained the most popular of the three.

BlackPlanet features some glossy new makeovers and Solange’s page is complete with all the bells and whistles. Along with a live section announcing upcoming show dates, the dossier section lists a series of images of Solange. Fans can also sign up for a newsletter to keep up with the stylish artist.

Twitter reactions have been pouring in fast and swift and we’ve captured some of them below.
