Drake Responds After Boosie Badazz Calls Out Kanye West

Boosie Badazz wants Kanye West to leave Drake alone.

The Baton Rouge rapper called out the Yeezy mogul after he kept bringing up Drake in his tweets. “@kanyewest WHY U CANT KEEP DRAKE OUT YO MOUTH BRA🤷🏽‍♂️IM GO SAY IT,” Boosie tweeted along with the hashtag #stophatin.

According to Boosie, Kanye’s obsessive tweeting about Drake is a sign of jealousy. “YOU SHOWING STR8 JEALOUSY N YOU AINT EVEN GOTTA DO THAT 🤷🏽‍♂️U RICH RICH NI**A 💰SMH,” he added.

Boosie’s tweet didn’t go unnoticed by Drake himself, who showed his approval by liking a repost of the comment on Akademiks’ Instagram page.

Kanye continues to mention Drake in his tweets. Earlier in the week, he demanded an apology from him and J. Cole. “I need a publicly apology from J Cole and Drake to start with immediately … I’m Nat Turner … I’m fighting for us,” he tweeted.

He also brought up Drake while discussing his plans to help artists gain freedom from major labels, and jokingly excluded Drake.

“WE’RE GONIG TO TRANSPARENTLY CHANGE EVERY ALBUM DEAL EVERY PUBLISHING DEAL EVERY MERCH DEAL EVERY TOURING DEAL EXCEPT FOR DRAKE’S DEALS,” he declared, adding, “JUST KIDDING … I LOVE DRAKE TOO … ALL ARTIST MUST BE FREE.”

Drake has not directly responded to Ye, but he previously addressed their rift, which was exacerbated by his beef with Pusha-T. “Things have changed. I’m not just some kid that’s a fan anymore,” he told TIDAL’s “Rap Radar” podcast last year. “Now we have personal situations, and like I said, a lot of his issues with me, I can’t fix them for him.”

Cardi B Opens Up About Divorce From Offset

Cardi B is breaking her silence about her divorce from Offset.

Taking to Instagram Live on Friday, the “WAP” rapper addressed fans for the first time since filing divorce papers on Tuesday. After thanking fans for their support, she said that she has “not shed one tear” over their separation and revealed that the divorce was not a result of Offset’s cheating.

“Every single time that this guy has done something so crazy, so fu**ed up and it hits the media, I’m always crying, I’m always stressed out, I’m sad because I don’t like that type of shit,” said Cardi. “This time, I wasn’t crying. You want to know why? The reason for my divorce is not because of none of that shit that ever happened before. It’s not ’cause of cheating.”

There were rumors that Offset was expecting a baby with another woman, which Cardi denied. “I’m seeing people be like, ‘Oh, he has a baby on the way.’ That’s a whole fu**ing complete lie. That’s the second time people are trying to pin babies over here. No, that’s bullshit.”

The couple briefly separated in 2018 over Offset’s infidelity, but later reconciled after Offset pleaded with his wife to take him back.

“I just got tired of f**king arguing,” she continued. “I got tired of not seeing things eye-to-eye. When you feel like it’s just not the same anymore, before you actually get cheated on, I’d rather just leave.”

According to Cardi, the couple just grew apart. “I been with this man for four years,” she said. “I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man…sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments, of the build-ups. You get tired sometimes and before something bad happens, before you get left, before you get cheated on, sometimes you just wanna leave. What is so bad about that?”

She decided to end the relationship before things got worse. “Y’all want me to get cheated on 15 times before I leave? You want this ni**a to have a kid before I leave? No, sometimes you wanna stop it before it gets to that.”

Cardi says Offset’s infidelity would have come to light if there was any truth. “We all know that Set is really sloppy when it comes to fu**in’ around. I’m sure it would have been something out now. No, just leave it.”

For now, she’s happy to be single. “I just wanna be a free bird,” she said.

On Tuesday, Cardi filed for divorce from her husband of three years, saying the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and “there are no prospects for a reconciliation.” She and Offset will continue to co-parent their daughter Kulture and Cardi will not seek spousal or child support.

Cardi is not allowing her divorce to put a damper on her birthday plans. The rapper, who turns 28 next month, said she may go to Miami or the Dominican Republic to celebrate.

Eminem Has Recorded a Remix of Kanye West’s ‘Use This Gospel’

Kanye West is spreading the gospel with some help from Eminem.

During his tweetstorm on Friday, the Yeezy mogul revealed that Eminem recorded a remix of his Jesus Is King track “Use This Gospel,” which was produced by Dr. Dre.

“@Eminem THANK YOU FOR RAPPING ON THE DR DRE REMIX OF USE THIS GOSPEL,” tweeted a grateful Ye.

He went on to share his admiration for Marshall Mathers. “I HAVW [sic] ALWAYS LOVED AND RESPECTED YOU AND IM HONORED TO HAVE YOU BLESS THIS SONG,” he said, adding that “Use This Gospel” is his daughter North’s “favorite Kanye West song of all time.”

The only other time Kanye and Em have collaborated was on 2009’s “Forever,” which also featured Drake and Lil Wayne.

In November, Kanye announced that Dr. Dre was producing a sequel to Jesus Is King. Snoop Dogg recently revealed that he also collaborated with Ye on an untitled track at the request of Dre.

“The ni**a mind sound like he right, he in the right spirit, he rapping this shit,” Snoop told “The Breakfast Club.” “The shit he saying is spiritual, it’s dope. And I tell him, ‘Ni**a, you back.’”

In a separate tweet, Kanye said that he wants to help Taylor Swift get back her masters from Scooter Braun. Last year, Justin Bieber’s manager acquired Swift’s six-album catalog when he purchased her old record label, Big Machine.

He also vowed to help other artists gain freedom from their labels while jokingly excluding Drake. “WE’RE GONIG TO TRANSPARENTLY CHANGE EVERY ALBUM DEAL EVERY PUBLISHING DEAL EVERY MERCH DEAL EVERY TOURING DEAL EXCEPT FOR DRAKE’S DEALS,” he tweeted, adding, “JUST KIDDING … I LOVE DRAKE TOO … ALL ARTIST MUST BE FREE.”

The Weeknd May Have a New Album Ready Once Quarantine Is Over

More XO.

Just six months after the release of After Hours, The Weeknd is readying his next move. In an interview for the cover of Rolling Stone, Abel revealed that he may have another album ready to drop once the pandemic dies down.

“I might have another album ready to go by the time this quarantine is over,” he tells the magazine.

He has spent the last four months “cooped up” at his L.A. condo producing new songs out of a makeshift studio in between binging on Korean horror films.

Fans can expect a reinvention from the Canadian singer, who refuses to put himself in a box. “I’m guilty of wanting to outdo my last album,” he says. “But it’s never like, ‘I’ve got to do the same type of song.’ I’m so happy I’m not like that. My palette is so wide.”

According to Rolling Stone, the new music is a “whole different world from After Hours.” “I’m trying to find a perfect balance with the film and the music, and so far it’s going really well,” he adds. “I think I might have cracked the code.”

The self-proclaimed “workaholic” has also been writing a secretive screenplay. “I can’t talk about it too much yet,” he teases. “I really want it to be official.”

After Hours debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in March and spawned hits including “Heartless” and “Blinding Lights,” which is currently No. 5 on the Hot 100.

Kanye West Says He’s the New Head of Adidas, Trashes Puma

After a 12-hour lockout, Kanye West returned to Twitter with a big announcement.

In his latest series of tweets on Friday, Ye announced that he is the new head of Adidas, home to his popular Yeezy brand.

“I am the head of adidas,” he told his 31 million followers.

As part of his new role, he says he wants to bring rivals Adidas and Puma back together, and mend his relationship with JAY-Z. “I will bring adidas and puma back together and bring me and jay back together,” he said before taking shots at Puma.

“all pumas designs are embarrassingly trash,” added Ye, “but I will personally design puma and adidas and make everything ok.”

JAY-Z has a partnership with Puma, along with many of Kanye’s peers including Pusha-T, Big Sean, Meek Mill, and J. Cole.

Kanye released his first Adidas Yeezy sneaker in 2015 and his partnership with the German sportswear company has been lucrative. According to Forbes, his Yeezy sneaker empire is valued at $1.3 billion.

He previously complained about his lack of a board seat at Adidas and Gap and even threatened to walk away from both companies unless they put him on their corporate boards. “In risk or no risk of losing whatever deal possible, I am not on the board at Adidas. I am not on the board at Gap,” West said during his presidential campaign rally in July. “And that has to change today, or I walk away.”

During Friday’s Twitter spree, he also called for the release of Suge Knight and Larry Hoover.

Big Sean Confirms New TWENTY88 Album

Big Sean has another sequel on deck.

After dropping Detroit 2 earlier this month, the rapper reveals that a follow-up to TWENTY88’s debut album is in the works. During his interview with Hot 97’s “Ebro in the Morning,” Sean was asked whether he and Jhené Aiko were working on another joint project.

“I hope so, I think so,” he said.

In a Q&A session with fans on Reddit, he confirmed that a sequel is happening. “Are you guys working on a new TWENTY88 album?” asked one fan, to which Sean responded, “It’s in the works :).”

Big Sean Reddit

In 2016, Sean hinted at another TWENTY88 album. “Luv to everybody who supported @TWENTY88, feels like we really started something special in 2016,” he tweeted. “See you next year.”

For now, the duo can be heard on “Time In” off Detroit 2. They also worked together on “None of Your Concern” off Jhené’s latest album Chilombo.

Speaking with Hot 97, Sean also shared what it’s like to collaborate with his girlfriend. “Collabing with [Jhené] is like one of the easiest things ever. When we both are in the mood, ’cause when you in a relationship, it’s like sometimes you can be irritated with each other,” he said. “Over nothing too.”

He went on to share more insight into their relationship. “Me and her be having good conversation. It doesn’t ever really turn to arguments… Her granddad was a lawyer, so she’s very debatable. She would have been a good lawyer for sure.”

TWENTY88’s self-titled debut album was released in April 2016 and debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200.
