Neal Brennan Reveals R. Kelly Tried to Press Dave Chappelle Over Infamous Skit

Throughout the fall out of the Surviving R. Kelly docu-series, many recalled to the pop culture references toward R. Kelly’s rumored history. The most notable one was Dave Chappelle’s “Piss On You” skit from Chappelle’s Show, which is now confirmed to have ruffled the feathers of the “Pied Pieper of R&B.”

Co-creator of Chappelle’s Show, Neal Brennan, recently made an appearance on The Breakfast Club and while talking about the legendary skit, he revealed that R. Kelly wanted to fight Chappelle and sent “goons” to press him during a trip to Chicago.

R. Kelly wanted to fight Dave,” Brennan detailed. “His goons stepped to Dave in Chicago and Dave’s goons intervened. The goons negotiated.”

Check out a clip from Neal’s time below and be sure to check out the full interview here.

Mac Miller’s Parents Plan To Accept Their Son’s ‘Rap Album Of The Year’ Award At The Grammys

The parents of deceased Pittsburgh rap mainstay Mac Miller will be in attendance at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Miller’s Swimming album was posthumously nominated for Album Of The Year and according to TMZ, the Millers will be present to accept the award in his name if he wins.

Tragedy struck last year when Miller passed away from an accidental overdose in his California home. He was only 26 years old.

According to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner, Miller, 26, passed away from “mixed drug toxicity,” that included “fentanyl, cocaine and ethanol.” “The manner of death was certified as an accident,” according to RadarOnline.

Last year, several rappers paid tribute to the fallen rapper through song, including Travis Scott and Post Malone.

Quavo Invites Clemson Football Team to Quality Control HQ

Quavo wants to show Trump how champions are supposed to be treated.

It is a common tradition for every college and professional team to visit the White House upon winning a championship. Since Trump’s presidential term, many teams have denied the invitation to visit the White House. The Golden State Warriors have won 2 championships since POTUS 45 took office. They have denied the visit for consecutive years. They are the favorite to three-peat as NBA champions, so we won’t be surprised if they don’t show up again.

The 2019 College Football Champion Clemson Tigers were the first team to visit the White House a week after their win over Alabama. They were greeted with a fast food buffet for a meal upon entering the White House dining room.

Earlier in the day, Trump said he was going to order fast food when the team arrived.

“I think we are going to serve McDonald’s Wendy’s and Burger King’d with some pizza,” he said. “I would think that’s their favorite food.”

With many of White House staff out due to the government shutdown, Trump purchased the cheapest food he could find.

“Of all the crazy things Trump said and did over the weekend, this might be the craziest,” said Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show Monday night.

Although Trump is a notorious tweeter, he forgot to use spell check when tweeting about the visit.

Many of the Clemson players said the visit was a joke after being treated as such. Well, Quavo caught wind of this and has extended an invitation to the Clemson Tigers. Although Honcho is a perceived Georgia Bulldogs fan, he wants to show Trump how you should treat a National Champion. It is obvious that Quavo knows more about hospitality than Trump. He is homegrown in Southern roots. As for Trump, it is unsure if he is homegrown in any aspect of hospitality. Hopefully, the Tigers take Quavo up on his offer.

Lil Wayne Gets a Custom OVO 6 Chain Made for Drake

Lil Wayne gifts his protege with a custom chain.

After releasing Tha Carter V last October, Weezy is one of the happiest rappers alive. The project was put on hold for a number of years but was finally released on the latter part of 2018. Although it was long overdue, it was well received by fans.

The “Uproar” rap legend signed Drake to Young Money back in 2009. Since then the Young Money roster has had a decade worth of success with Drizzy, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga. While Drake and Nicki have been the biggest Young Money artist over the last 10 years, Tyga’s 2018 comeback puts him back in the conversation of successful Weezy proteges.

To start the year, Wayne is in a gift-giving mood. Drake is known as the 6 God, stemming from his hometown Toronto. Lil Wayne went to popular jeweler Elliot to get Drake a new custom “6” chain. As you can imagine, the chain is dripped in diamonds. In addition to the new chain, Drizzy recently signed a residency deal for $10 million in Las Vegas.

Elliot is a popular jeweler to all the biggest stars in the game such as Offset, Future and more. His popular hashtag #ShouldaWentToElliot is a testament to his reputation. We can’t wait to see the “Nonstop” superstar sport his new gift. Peep the custom made piece below.

Fenty Family Feud: Rihanna Sues Her Father Over Her Brand Name

It looks like Rihanna wasn’t playing when she said, “Please don’t call me on my bluff. Pay me what you owe me.” Not even her father is exempt from payment.

In fact, the “Bitch Better Have My Money” songstress is willing to fight her in court to ensure she receives every penny.

The Fenty family feud ensued after Ronald Fenty established Fenty Entertainment in 2017. Fenty Ent is a talent development company. On the contrary, Rih trademarked the family name to use on an assortment of businesses including beauty products, and clothing.

Rihanna alleges her father and his company are profiting from a name she worked tirelessly to build. Furthermore, she says that in 2015, her father and his business associates falsely presented themselves as her representatives. In doing so they were able to swindle promoters out of millions of dollars.

Perhaps their most brazen attempt was booking the singer for 15 shows throughout Latin America for a price of $15 million. Shockingly, all of this shady business was conducted without her knowledge.

Despite multiple cease and desist order sent to Mr. Fenty on his daughter’s behalf he proceeded to file a “Fenty” trademark request for resort boutiques. Ultimately he was unsuccessful.

As a result of continued underhanded business practices by her dad, Rihanna is requesting a judge placed an injunction on her dad using the name Fenty as well as payment for damages.
