Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill Get Into Heated Argument

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill came face to face during Grammy weekend and it didn’t go well.

The former couple got into a heated argument at Maxfield in West Hollywood on Friday. TMZ obtained video of the shouting match, which took place in front of customers at the high-end retailer.

“There’s 50 people outside. We’re good,” says Nicki, to which someone else responds, “There are 100 people outside.”

It’s unclear who started the argument, but things quickly escalated. Nicki’s husband Kenneth Petty also got involved. “She ain’t talking to you no more. Can’t talk to me one-on-one,” says a voice that appears to be Petty.

He calls Meek a “pussy ni**a” before Meek responds by calling him a “pussy n**a.” Nicki can also be heard shouting at Meek, calling him a bitch and seemingly saying that he can’t get over her.

Meek reportedly had to be held back and escorted out of the store by his own security team and the Maxfield staff.

Rapper Retch happened to be at the store at the same time and snapped photos with both separately. At first, Nicki thought Retch was part of Meek’s team and tried to confront him, but when she realized he was not connected, she happily posed for a pic.

Meek and Nicki started dating in 2015 before announcing their breakup in January 2017. Nicki addressed her ex on “Barbie Dreams,” rapping, “Meek still be in my DMs, I be havin’ to duck him.”

In October, Nicki married Petty, her childhood sweetheart, in a private ceremony.

Machine Gun Kelly Blasts Eminem for Posting Meme

Machine Gun Kelly is back for more.

The Cleveland rapper took to Twitter to take another shot at Eminem. In a since-deleted tweet, MGK insinuated that Em is desperate for relevancy after the Detroit rapper participated in the viral Dolly Parton Challenge, posting four profile photos for LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Tinder (or Grindr in Em’s case).

After seeing the meme, MGK called out his 47-year-old rival. “50 year old artists tryna be relevant to the youth by posting trending meme’s is something i never thought i’d see #2020,” he wrote.

Eminem previously declared that their long-running beef was over on “Unaccommodating” off his new album Music To Be Murdered By. “But when they ask me is the war finished with MGK? Of course it is,” raps Slim Shady. “I cleansed him of his mortal sins, I’m God and the Lord forgives, even the devil worshippers / I’m moving on.”

MGK was not impressed, slamming Eminem and his album. “mad af I just stepped out a loud room to hear this bullshit,” he tweeted. “he’s been rich and mad for 20 years straight.”

The Game Says Cops Targeted YG During Grammy Weekend

YG was arrested at his home Friday on robbery charges.

The Game for one was outraged by the arrest of his fellow Compton MC, which came just days before the Grammys where YG is set to perform during a tribute to Nipsey Hussle.

“They know that YG was supposed to be on the Grammys,” Game told TMZ. “The Grammys gave ni**as an opportunity to put on for Nip and of course the LAPD, they gon’ come through and hate. Wake a man up after he been through everything he been through at 4 a.m. in the morning taking him to jail when he excelling in life. That shit trash.”

He says that YG was targeted because cops wanted to derail his Nipsey tribute. “People knocking on doors taking this man away from his kid during a celebratory weekend for Nip,” he added.

YG was taken into custody on Friday morning after L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at his home with a search warrant related to an on-going criminal investigation involving a robbery. He was released Friday night on $250,000 bail and is expected to appear in court on Jan. 28.

The “Big Bank” rapper is slated to perform alongside John Legend, DJ Khaled, Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, and Kirk Franklin as part of a tribute to Nipsey Hussle at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday.

Megan Thee Stallion Enlists SZA, Kehlani, and Pharrell for Debut Album

Megan Thee Stallion is coming in hot.

Fresh off the release of her new single “B.I.T.C.H.,” the Houston hottie is revealing some of the big names on her highly-anticipated debut album Suga. In an interview with Apple Music’s Beats 1, Meg said the album will feature collaborations with SZA, Juicy J, and Pharrell.

“My friend SZA, she pulled up on me in the studio, because we have a song that’s gonna be on my album too and it was so fire making that song with her,” she said. “Juicy J produced it. We know I love Juicy J. So yeah, we got a lot of bangers on that album.”

She was also recently in the studio with Pharrell for four days cooking up some hits. “I’m working on my album and I definitely just really appreciate good music. And Pharrell is just somebody that you know knows good music,” she said. “We locked in the studio for about four days and we got some fire.”

The super-producer even gave her a nickname, Megan the Machine. “He calls me the Machine. Megan the Machine. Because I got in there and I was knocking them verses out so quick and knocking them songs out. You gotta get in the studio and you gotta show Pharrell what you can do. So as quick as he knocking them out, I’m back dooring and knocking them out. So he was like, ‘Oh, you a machine.’ And I was like, ‘Damn. Pharrell called me a machine. That’s great.’”

The album, which follows her mixtapes Fever and Tina Snow, is named after her newest alter ego Suga (“She’s besties with Tina Snow”) and is also said to feature Kehlani, according to a press release.

“A lot of the features that I have and a lot of beat selections that I have on this album, I feel like it’s gonna be way different than things that I have already put out. So I feel like it’s gonna be super epic.”

On Friday, Meg released the first track off the album, “B.I.T.C.H.,” which samples Tupac’s “Ratha Be Ya Ni**a.” “I had to respect the legends,” she said. “I had just finished doing a show. I cannot remember what state I was in, but I had left my show and I was about to take a shower. And I had hit my A&R and I’m like, ‘I wanna remake ‘Ni**a’ by Tupac.’ So he literally sent the beat like, the next day. I wrote a little bit of it on the plane and then I wrote the rest of it in my next hotel room in the next state. And boom, I literally just went to record it in Vegas like the next week after that.”

Megan also recently collaborated with Normani on “Diamonds” off the Birds of Prey soundtrack. “She’s bomb and she’s another Houston girl. So I definitely was like, ‘We gotta get the two Texas girls on this song.’”

Chance the Rapper to Revive ‘Punk’d’

Chance the Rapper is bringing back “Punk’d.”

The Grammy-winning rapper will take over as host of the groundbreaking prank show. The original MTV series, which was hosted by Ashton Kutcher from 2003-2007, will be reimagined for a new generation and will be available exclusively on Quibi’s mobile video platform.

Chance will also serve as director of the reboot, which promises “new laughs, new hoaxes, and new celebrity ‘marks’ in bite-sized episodes.” And as always, no one is safe. Hidden cameras will be placed to catch all the action.

“Punk’d is one of MTV’s most iconic franchises,” said Chance in a statement. “I grew up watching this show and it’s surreal to be in the driver’s seat this time around on Quibi.”

The trailer offers a first look at some of the wild pranks in store including a gorilla stunt with Megan Thee Stallion and another with a car explosion.

The series is set to premiere April 6. Quibi will feature original content made for mobile viewing with episodes delivered in 10 minutes or less. Offset and Keke Palmer are also set to debut programming on the platform.

YG Arrested in Connection with Robbery

YG was arrested and booked for robbery on Friday.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the rapper’s San Fernando Valley home around 4 a.m. with a search and arrest warrant related to a robbery case.

YG’s vehicle was involved in a high-speed chase back in July, which ended in a deadly shootout. Police were called to apprehend a DUI suspect in his Escalade. While they were chasing the suspect, someone in the SUV allegedly opened fire, killing a 65-year-old man on a bike.

YG previously denied any involvement. “I was nowhere near the scene of this incident and had been in a recording studio all day in Hollywood,” he told TMZ. “I was there until after midnight on the Fourth of July and didn’t learn of these events until after they happened.”

It’s unclear if the Friday morning raid is related to that case. A couple weeks after the shooting, a Hollywood Hills home leased by YG was raided and at least one person was arrested for a weapons charge. YG was not present during that raid.

The Compton MC is currently in custody and is being transported to a jail to be booked for robbery. He is slated to perform during a tribute to Nipsey Hussle at the Grammys on Sunday. It’s unclear if this will affect the performance.

Following his arrest, his fellow rapper The Game tweeted: “Funny how @YG gets arrested the weekend of the Grammy’s when he’s supposed to hit the stage in Nip’s honor. #LAPDtheBiggestGangHere.”

Lauren London Reveals Nipsey Hussle PUMA Collection

The Marathon continues.

Lauren London has revealed a first look at PUMA x The Marathon Clothing’s new collection honoring Nipsey Hussle. The collaboration, titled “Hussle and Motivate,” will feature reissued key pieces from Puma’s debut collection with the late rapper.

“To continue honoring the vision and legacy of Nipsey Hussle, PUMA and The Marathon Clothing are reissuing their debut collection together,” PUMA said in a statement to Newsweek.

The campaign stars Nipsey’s family and friends including London and YG, as well as Nipsey’s All Money In artists J. Stone, Killa Twan, and Pacman Da Gunman, who model black and red tracksuits in the promo images.

London also shared another photo wearing a white tee that reads: “We (The Marathon Clothing) honor the endurance and unwavering faith of those that never quit. Our products represent their testimony. Life is a marathon.”

The first PUMA x TMC Collection dropped in September 2019 and sold out quickly. The reissue will launch on Feb. 1 at select retailers and on PUMA.com, and includes co-branded tracksuits and T-shirts featuring checkered patterns and TMC motifs, as well as PUMA’s signature California sneakers in black and white. Prices will range from $40 to $100.

Last month, London debuted a video for PUMA’s “Forever Stronger” campaign. The three-and-a-half-minute clip, which was created by the actress herself, serves as a heartfelt tribute to her late boyfriend.

All net proceeds from the sale of the PUMA x TMC Collection will go directly to the Neighborhood “Nip” Foundation, which empowers the South Los Angeles community and neighborhoods alike across the globe.

Chris Brown and Afro B Join GASHI and DJ Snake on ‘Safety 2020’

GASHI re-ups for 2020 with the remix to “Safety” featuring Chris Brown and Afro B.

Over the hypnotizing rhythm, produced by DJ Snake, Mally Mall, and Space Primates, Breezy adds his smooth touch. “True love just makes it hard (Yes, it does) / Sometimes you go too far,” he sings.

The original version of “Safety,” which has been streamed and viewed over 25 million times, appears on GASHI’s self-titled debut album. Later this year, GASHI will launch a headlining tour across North America in support of the album.

Breezy recently collaborated with H.E.R. on the remix to “Slide.” Earlier this week, Afro B dropped his own remix of “Amina” from his album Afrowave 3 featuring Wande Coal and Team Salut.

Megan Thee Stallion Drops New Single ‘B.I.T.C.H.’

Megan Thee Stallion is that “B.I.T.C.H.”

The Houston hottie launches the first track off her highly-anticipated debut album. Meg demands respect on the bossy anthem, which samples Tupac Shakur’s All Eyez on Me classic “Ratha Be Ya Ni**a” and Bootsy Collins’ “I’d Rather Be With You.”

“Why you wanna play with me? / You know I’m undefeated,” she raps. “A real hot girl know how to keep a ni**a heated / You say you want respect / Well treat me how you wanna be treated / You told me keep it real but you don’t practice what you preachin’.”

“B.I.T.C.H.” arrives ahead of her debut, which will introduce her new alter ego Suga (“She’s besties with Tina Snow”). Fans can also expect a collaboration with Pharrell. The two were recently in the studio cooking up new music.

“I felt like my mixtapes were me flirting with my fans,” Meg told NPR last year. “I never wanted to do an album ’cause I was like, ‘Oh, that feel like marriage. That’s a commitment.’ But now, I’m ready to settle down with an album.”

Expect the heat wave to continue all year long. The Hot Girl is slated to perform at Coachella in April. She and Normani have also collaborated on “Diamonds” off Birds of Prey: The Album, which drops Feb. 7.
