Tekashi 6ix9ine Sued By Miami Over “Stoopid”

Tekashi 6ix9ine still isn’t clear of all his legal troubles. A Miami rapper is suing the infamous snitch over his hit song “Stoopid.”

Yung Gordon is coming for his coins because the Brooklyn rapper and his producer used his vocals for the song without bothering to tell him, allegedly.

Reports Page Six:

Rapper Yung Gordon, whose real name is Seth Gordon, filed his copyright infringement lawsuit in Brooklyn federal court just weeks after a Manhattan judge sentenced Tekashi to two years in prison on racketeering charges.

Certain versions of “Stoopid,” released in October 2018, contain a snippet of Gordon belting out a few lines, his lawsuit charges.

“Y’all already know, it be the boy Yung Gordon/ You rockin’ with Take Money Promotions/ Ay Take Money Promotions/ Give ’em that new s–t, no fool s–t/ Oh Yeah, let’s go,” Gordon raps in versions of “Stoopid” that have been taken down from the Spotify streaming-music service.

Gordon says he emailed the 9-second “drop” to Tekashi’s producer — and says he was never advised that it would be used in the song prior to its release.

It is unspecified how much money Gordon is seeking. But considering Tekashi already has a new record deal despite not being due to be released until this summer, he’s looking for the bag.

Tekashi was originally going to do 47 years in the bing for drug conspiracy charges. However, the rapper took to the stand and started dropping dime on everybody. Because of his gratuitous, despite pleading guilty, a judge sentenced him to 2 years (including his time already served).

Struggle Soldier Sean Kingston Detained & Released By Cops, Searched for Gun

Sean Kingston arrest

Source: TMZ / TMZ

Hey, we’re sure Sean Kingston has plenty of fans who think he’s one of the all-time great singers. He also has a number of jewelers mad at him for stiffing them on payments and seems to find himself wrapped in the struggle every six or so months.

The latest debacle the “Suicidal” singer found himself in was getting detained by police as they searched to see if he was carrying a firearm.

Wit, the crooner may have been packing?

Reports TMZ:

However, a witness says Sean brought the heat on himself.

An eyewitness tells TMZ … he saw something different at Dino’s. He says Sean’s car was blocking the exit in the parking lot so no one could leave, and that pissed off some patrons.  The eyewitness went on to say Sean himself got angry and began throwing ice cubes at the glass windows of the restaurant, which created a loud noise.

This guy.

You Nice, Lord: The 20th Anniversary Of Ghostface Killah’s ‘Supreme Clientele’

Loud Records 25th Anniversary Concert

Source: Johnny Nunez / Getty

February on the east coast, especially north of the Carolinas, places a familiar winter chill over the cities and towns that make up the region. A common theme of the lower temps is music that fits the barren trees and concrete backdrops, and Ghostface Killah‘s sublime album Supreme Clientele, celebrating its 20th anniversary today, embodies the best of that audio tradition.

With the turn of the century, the Wu-Tang Clan became a household name and a steady string of solo releases from the founding members set in motion the crew’s dominance within the culture. Method Man’s November 1994 debut album Tical, Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s March 1995 debut Return To The 36 Chambers, Raekwon’s August 1995 debut Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, and GZA’s November 1995 second album, his first under the Wu-Tang banner, Liquid Swords, all cemented RZA as the visionary of the sprawling collective.

In October 1996, Ghostface Killah’s debut Ironman gave way to the manic and impassioned delivery of the once-mysterious swordsman, with plenty of assistance from his brethren in Raekwon, Cappadonna, and RZA’s guiding hand on production. And 1997’s Wu-Tang Forever double-disc featuring the entire Clan along with other releases from U-God, Sunz Of Man, Killah Priest, Killarmy and other We affiliates ended out the decade.

Supreme Clientele was a welcomed shift in sound from Ironman and highlighted other producers aside from the RZA, who still oversaw the project’s sonic direction and produced around half of the songs. The end result of the project was more lyrically dense than Ghostface’s previous efforts. And while GFK’s freewheeling style was refined, there was also a tangible level of renewed hunger present in his verses along with sprinklings of street tales, fly imagery, and Five Percent Nation teachings.

Consider the opening track “Nutmeg,” and the stream of consciousness displayed throughout:

Bout it, bout it, Lord forgive me, Ms. Sally shouted
Tracey got shot in the face, my house was overcrowded
You fake cats done heard it first
On how I sh*tted on your turf that time, Cuban Link verse yo
Check out the rap kingpin, summertime, fine jewelry dripping
Face to the box, I seen your ear twitching
As soon as I drove off, Cap’ came to me with three sawed-offs
Give one to Rae’, let’s season they broth

This was followed by the word wizardry of the following track “One” which featured more of Ghost’s random stylings:

Ayo, we at the weed gate, waiting for jake
We want eight ravioli bags, two thirsty villains yelling bellyaches
Heavyweight rhyme writers, hitting the grass that’s the ripest
Pull out this kite from this white b*tch
Talking ’bout, “Dear Ghost, you the only n*gga I know
Like when the cops come, you never hide your toast”
Guest starred in mad sh*t, CBL, Ice Water metallic
Past tense placed in gold caskets
Dru Hill bitches, specialist lounging at the mosque
Suede kufi wrap, undercover dentist
Rhymes is made of garlic, never in the target when the NARCs hit
Rumor is you might start to spit
You nice Lord, sweet daddy Grace, wind lifted
On the dancefloor, makeover’s free followed by gauze
Duncan Hines monument cakes, we never half-baked
Alaskan, sexcapade, push your new court dates
Trauma, hands is like candy canes, lay my balls on ice
The branches in my weed be the vein
Swimsuit issue, darts sent truly from the heart, boo, I miss you
See daddy rock a wristful

There isn’t much of a narrative present across Supreme Clientele, although Ghost’s penchant for storytelling was on display on tracks like “Saturday Nite” and “Child’s Play” but for the most part, it was just darts upon darts.

Two strong posse cuts, “Buck 50” featuring Redman and Wu members Method Man and Cappadona, and “Wu Banga 101” with GZA, Cappadonna, Masta Killah, and Raekwon are notable for their potency. The late Lord Superb also shined brightly on the tracks “Ghost Deini” and “We Made It” while “Cherchez La Ghost” became an unexpected club hit with U-God on the assist.

Ghostface’s momentum continued in the following year with his album Bulletproof Wallets ahead of moving to Def Jam Records in 2004 with the release of The Pretty Toney Album. Ghost is still going as he approaches his 50th birthday this coming May, this after dropping Ghostface Killahs last year.

The high quality of Supreme Clientele has allowed it to retain its influence over the past two decades as it inspired the current generation’s leaders of the underground in Griselda, with Westside Gunn naming his second studio album Supreme Blientele in tribute.

Ask any Wu-Tang Clan fan and they’ll rattle off their picks for the best of the crew’s best material, but a significant portion of that group will undoubtedly name Supreme Clientele as their favorite for good reason. From start to finish, Toney Starks’ microphone prowess and passion are undeniable and, for many listeners, it remains his crown jewel. You nice, lord, indeed.

Take a listen to the classic Supreme Clientele below.

Former 112 Frontman Q Stands With Mase Regarding Diddy Publishing Beef

2019 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards

Source: Prince Williams / Getty

Sean “Diddy” Combs was the target of an Instagram rant from Mason “Mase” Betha, who claims he’s been fighting to get his publishing rights back from the Bad Boy Records founder. Former 112 lead singer Q says he stands with Mase and his group also signed a similar deal back in the 1990s.

 

TMZ caught up with the singer born Quinnes Parker as he walked about Washington, D.C.  After leaving 112 back in 2018, Q has been doing his own thing but no doubt caught wind of his former Bad Boy label mate’s missive at Puff.  While Q believes that Diddy should release the publishing rights back to Mase and himself, he did say that the mogul didn’t exactly swindle them as those contracts were standard back in the day.

Check out the video from TMZ below.

Meek Mill Does #AskMeek Twitter Q&A and Man Alive…

Super Bowl LIV - San Francisco 49ers v Kansas City Chiefs

Source: Ronald Martinez / Getty

Meek Mill might have wanted to let his recent kerfuffle with Nicki Minaj cool off for a while. But nevertheless, the Philly rapper held an #AskMeek Q&A today (Feb. 7) and Twitter exercised everything but chill.

Like come on, y’all really asked this man about his knees and french fries on these Internets?

We did get some interesting info. Like, apparently Meek Mill prefers Ishkabibbles but he’ll be opening his own cheesesteak restaurant in Philly soon.

But for the most part, there a whole heaping full of slander. Those Barbz clearly have long memories.

But the people I was running against would come and tear the posters down” she remembered. Cortez in turned served the store owners with postcards that they would stuff into each patron’s brown paper bags.

Jay-Z Details His Final Convo With Kobe Bryant During Columbia Lecture Series

Jay-Z Details His Final Conversation With Kobe Bryant

Source: Ronald Martinez / Getty

Pretty much everyone that has directly interacted with Kobe Bryant has shared a story about the late NBA superstar. Speaking at his lecture series in partnership with Columbia University, JAY-Z got candid about his final conversation with Bryant.

Jigga was asked by an attendee about his deep relationship with sports with his agency, and the passing of Kobe Bryant, Hov revealed that the final conversations with Bryant were primarily about the joy he got watching his 13-year-old daughter play the sport he loved.

“Kobe was a guy that looked up to me, and we’ve hung out multiple times. He was last at my house on New Year’s, and he was just in the greatest space that I’ve seen him in. One of the last things he said to me was, ‘You’ve got to see Gianna play basketball.’ And that was one of the most hurtful things, because he was so proud.”

Hov further added that he could tell by the look on Kobe’s face that he knew Gianna was destined for sports greatness. “I looked and him and said, ‘Oh, she’s going to be the best female basketball player in the world,’” he told Kobe. “He was just so proud of what he said. So that’s really a tough one, and my wife and I have taken that really tough. Just a great human being and was in a great space in his life.”

Deep.

Kobe and Gianna were among nine people who tragically died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, last month. Bryant’s wife Vanessa has been very active on Instagram sharing, reflecting on the lives of her late husband and daughter and even sharing videos from a ceremony from Gianna’s school where they retired the young basketball star’s no.2 jersey.

The date for Kobe and Gianna’s memorial service at the Staple’s Center has also been set as well.

Toxicology Report Shows Bobbi Kristina’s Fiancé Nick Gordon Overdosed On Heroin

The tragic story of Bobbi Kristina continues to get even more unfortunate. Nick Gordon’s cause of death has been confirmed and it is what a lot of thought it was.

Page Six is reporting that the autopsy on Nick Gordon has been finalized and the results point to substance abuse. TMZ states that he died from overdose of heroin. According to the documentation he was found unresponsive on New Years Day with some sort of black fluid coming from his mouth at a hotel in Maitland, Florida. As Thirty Mile Zone states that “black discharge is sometimes related to a foam cone that comes out of the mouth and nostrils after an opioid OD”.

This announcement brings the Bobbi Kristina narrative to a stranger closure albeit her life was lost in the process. In 2015 Whitney Houston’s daughter died from lobar pneumonia after being in a coma for nearly six months. That January Gordon and another friend found her face down in a bathtub in her home in Alpharetta, Georgia. In a fate of what has to be twisted irony her mother died in a similar fashion in 2018 at the Beverley Hills Hilton hotel. Surprisingly hundred of celebrities, performers, executives and music insiders continued to party at the same property while her body was being examined by medical professionals.

Gordon was found legally responsible for her untimely passing. In turn Brown’s family won a ruling that Nick would pay them 36 million dollars in a wrongful death case. You can hear the 911 call below.

R. Kelly Appears In Court Via Livestream, Judge Sets A July Trial Date

R Kelly Appears In Court in Chicago For Status Hearing

Source: Pool / Getty

The trials and tribulations of R. Kelly continue to unfold in a court of law and we don’t feel a single bit of sorry for him.

After suffering a bad toenail infection and having hernia surgery, R. Kelly finally made his appearance in a Brooklyn court… via video. According to Page Six the embattled R&B singer was streamed into the courtroom live from a Chi-Town prison where he currently resides as he awaits his upcoming trials for his alleged crimes against many young women.

The “Trapped in the Closet” singer, who is now trapped in a Chicago lockup, kept mostly quiet and looked attentive as he appeared at the hearing on a video screen. He listened with his brow furrowed and his fingers laced, occasionally biting his lower lip.

“Good afternoon, ma’am,” Kelly, wearing an orange, short-sleeved jail top, said to Brooklyn Federal Judge Ann Donnelly as the hearing began.

Being that this is as high a profile as a case can get, the Brooklyn judge noted that she’d have to go through ” hundreds of potential jurors” before things can officially get underway. Though the trial was scheduled to being this past May, the judge presiding over it felt it was “unrealistic” and pushed it back to a July 7 date as Kelly’s federal trial in Chicago begins this coming April.

Donnelly said Kelly’s trial would need a pool of about 200 potential jurors and she expects about to send out 500 questionnaires to pre-screen candidates.

“We need to leave enough time to get our jury in place,” the judge said.

Given Kelly’s past popularity in the Hip-Hop culture, he might be seeing an mostly white and/or young jury sitting on the sidelines. Just sayin.’

Kelly is currently facing charges which include sex trafficking, racketeering and child pornography. The Donnelly expects the trial to last three to four weeks.
