Nicki Minaj Trends on Twitter After Fans Speculate the Rapper’s Huge 2020 Comeback

Nicki Minaj popped up on Twitter’s trending radar Thursday night after her fan base bombarded social media with speculation about her 2020 comeback. The hashtag #NickiMinajIsComing took over barb space as her dearest supporters gathered to investigate their queen’s whereabouts. The trigger of the uproar started on Instagram when the Queen rapper shared a flyer in her Insta stories of her upcoming appearance at popular hip-hop friendly Miami venue, Mr. Jones, on Wednesday, Jan. 29.

@NICKIMINAJ 💕 Wed Jan 29th // Reservations 305.602.3117 #MrJonesMiami #SuperBowl

Gepostet von Mr Jones Miami am Mittwoch, 22. Januar 2020

ً”@SMILEYNTHAHOOD @NickiMinaj has something up here sleeve and I’m definitely ready for whatever iscoming. I’m hoping it’s music bc I need some MUSIC!!!!,” one Twitter barb tweeted.

The Instagram story was Nicki’s first of 2020 and first out of her social media hiatus since November 9. Surprisingly, tagged to the show post was her former manager, Big Fendi. There is a chance the two have rekindled their business relationship, with the Mr. Jones gig as a result. That has yet to be confirmed. According to Yahoo Entertainment, Nicki brings in pretty big bucks from making club appearances with a reported average of $500,000.

The most recent sighting of Nicki was through the Instagram post of New Jersey rapper, Retch, who bumped into Nicki during a shopping trip at a undisclosed location.

Well, there is a new Nicki album in the works. During an appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ last June, she confirmed the making of a new album but when asked about a release date she admitted that she will be taking her time putting the project together.

At this point, Nicki’s hiatus trips are signature and telling. Telling that something is certainly up her sleeve whether if it is a personal mark or musical blessing. With a subtle end on the decade and her Queen of Rap identity, it is a matter of time and space for Minaj to bring in 2020 with a bang.

Diddy’s “Bad Boys for Life” Song Used as Inspiration Anthem for Pediatric Cancer Patients

A group of children battling pediatric cancer has gone viral after using Sean Diddy Combs’ “Bad Boys for Life” song as their inspirational anthem.

The children seen in the video have either beaten cancer or are still battling cancer. The children come from a non-profit organization called “Fighting all Monsters” located in Miami, Florida. In their last act, the organization gifted one hundred families with one thousand dollars each, with a special dedication to families that have lost their child throughout the Christmas holiday.

The children’s wanted to get the attention of the hip-hop mogul. “We aint going no where. We aint goin no where. We can’t be stopped now, cause its Bad Boys for Life,” the children sang the lyrics to Diddy’s song.

The group’s goal is to bring awareness to pediatric cancer. Statistics show that 43 kids a day are diagnosed with cancer. Snoop Dogg was seen making an appearance with the children, which only made the children eager to catch the attention of the man responsible for their unofficial anthem.

Sure enough, Diddy has seen the report of the children singing his song and responded. “WOW! I’M SO INSPIRED BY THIS,” he began on Instagram. “These kids are so strong and I’m humbled they’ve found strength in one of my songs. They are fearless and motivating me like nothing before.⁣ And of course I’ll dance with all of you! Every time I’m feeling my energy shift I get up and dance. Keeps my vibrations high!⁣ I’ll dance with y’all every day! Never stop believing and remember WE AIN’T GOING NOWHERE!!!!”

TMZ reports that since Diddy has shared the video of the children, there has been a huge amount of support. An Apple executive allegedly reached out to the organization inquiring about ways to help the organization, following a man who donated 21K worth of iPad’s from the company. Individuals have also reached out to volunteer with the non-profit organization.

YG Arrested in Connection with Alleged Robbery

Earlier this morning, Jan 24, YG was arrested in connection with an alleged robbery. According to TMZ, Los Angeles County Sherrif’s served a search warrant, as well as an arrest warrant, on his San Fernando Valley home at around 4 am PST. Around 9:30 am, YG was taken into police custody and booked on robbery charges.

YG is currently scheduled to perform at the Grammy Awards this Sunday alongside Meek Mill, DJ Khaled, Kirk Franklin and Roddy Ricch for the Nipsey Hussle Tribute.

Famous attorney Joe Tacopina has been tapped by YG for assistance with the matter.

“This arrest is one that caught YG completely off guard because there is no truth to them,” Tacopina said to TMZ. “YG has no idea what investigators are talking about and we have not been provided with any details … we are learning about this case through the media.”

“Rest assured, my client will be cleared of all charges, if they even survive past the arraignment,” he added.

YG has a performance scheduled at The Grammy’s Sunday where he will honor Nipsey Hussle … so the timing is suspect, to put it mildly.”

On July 3, 2019, YG’s SUV was involved in a high-speed chase which began in Compton, CA and ended in a police officer shootout in Inglewood, CA. An innocent 65-year-old man was killed in the shootout.

YG made had made a statement regarding the incident stating “I was nowhere near the scene of this incident and had been in a recording studio all day in Hollywood. I was there until after midnight on the Fourth of July and didn’t learn of these events until after they happened.”

A couple of weeks after the shooting, YG’s rental home in Hollywood Hills was raided and one person was arrested on a weapons charge.

It is still unknown whether YG’s arrest is related to the incident that occurred in July.

Lord Jamar Has Heard Eminem’s Latest Diss to Him and He is Not Impressed

It is time for Lord Jamar vs Eminem episode 206. It may not be that many but it sure seems like it, right?

Plenty of discussions is going on around Eminem’s Music To Be Murdered By and of course Jamar visited his friend VladTV and offered his response to disses toward him and the album as a whole.

“He made a whole song about me,” says Jamar.”‘Ain’t he talking about me? No!? I thought ‘Stepdad’ is the one he’s talking about me. Which song are you talking about? Oh the one where he had a little verse about me? Nah, that ain’t as good as the ‘Stepdad!’ ‘Stepdad’ is banging! That shit rocks! That’s a whole song about me!”

He would go on to address the proper diss “I Will,” which features three-fourths of Slaughterhouse and enters some preliminary shade by saying it “falls short” because Joe Budden isn’t featured.

“I know what this bitch ass said. And what? I’m still unscathed,” Jamar fired off. “Guess what, motherfuckerss still ain’t listening to that in the hood. They gotta read about it because again my point is proven, nobody listens to your fuckin shit.”

Here all the opinions from Lord Jamar himself below.

Bobby Shmurda to Drop a Mixtape From Prison

The streets are getting ready for Bobby Shmurda to come back after he finishes his time behind bars. A recent report reveals Bobby could have some music on the way before he is a free man.

Rising Brooklyn star Fivio Foreign pulled up on Ebro Darden for an interview and detailed Rowdy Rebel told him a mixtape is on the way from Shmurda.

“Bobby, he’s dropping a mixtape from jail,” Fivio told Darden. “I spoke to Rebel on the phone. He said, two weeks and he got some fire coming out. He’s going crazy.”

The last formal release we heard from Bobby was way back in 2014 when he dropped his two mixtapes Shmoney Shmurda and Shmurdaville, but Hip-Hop is eagerly awaiting his return.

Fivio has some heat on the way as well in the form of his debut album, which will be named The Bible.
