“So I’ve been working on this project for the f*cking past week and I’m letting you know now this is the best f*cking project you’re gonna hear this f*cking year. You know how mad n*ggas put out projects and they got one song and they be like, ‘Oh sh*t, you heard that n*gga album or EP or mixtape or whatever,’ and they got one song? Every song on this f*cking project is a f*cking Billboard hit. It’s a f*cking banger. Watch the f*cking numbers. Watch the first week f*cking sales, man. You know the vibes.”

The tragic death of Black security guard Jemel Roberson at the hands of police as he was assisting in the arrest of a gunman is still under investigation. In the wake of the unfortunate incident, Kanye West has given the family of Roberson $150,000.

TMZ reports:

West heard the story of Jemel Roberson — who was gunned down by police after stopping a drunken man with a gun — and wanted to do whatever he could to lessen the burden on his family. West donated $150,000 to Roberson’s family Friday, the goal originally placed on a GoFundMe account for Roberson’s family was $10,000.

As we reported … Roberson was working security at Manny’s Blue Room Bar Sunday around 4 AM where several drunk customers were ordered out. One of those customers returned to the bar a short time later with a gun and opened fire.

Reports say Roberson returned fire, subdued the gunman and held him at gunpoint until police arrived … but when the police officer got to the scene, he shot Roberson, killing him.

The outlet adds that Roberson was working extra shifts just to secure enough money to make his son’s Christmas haul better this year.

Kanye West Reveals What He’s Working On Right Now & It’s Bigger Than G.O.O.D. Music

Kanye West

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has more than G.O.O.D. Music on his mind. The hip-hop star has announced he’s taking action following the devastating California wildfires.

Ye went to Twitter this week to reveal he’s taking action to help prevent community fires.

This week, reality TV star Kim Kardashian revealed Kanye reached out to President Donald Trump following an insensitive wildfires tweet.

“When he doesn’t agree with something like that fire comment he will screengrab [and] he will send it to the people close to [Trump] and say that maybe there should be a little more empathy in this,” Kardashian West said before her panel with CNN’s Van Jones at Variety and Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit at the Jeremy West Hollywood hotel. (Variety)

Kim also revealed what last-minute things she grabbed before evacuating their home.

Kardashian West told Variety that with just an hour to evacuate, they grabbed their computers and a hard drive containing digital files of their photo albums and videos as well as “my kids’ blankets, my childhood blanket that my grandma made me, things that you can’t really replace.” “All the other stuff doesn’t really matter,” she added. While evacuation orders have slowly been lifted, Kardashian West said they haven’t returned home just yet. “It’s smoky and my son has a little bit of asthma so it’s not really safe for him to go back,” she explained. (Variety)

A few days ago, the Trumpster hit up Twitter with his opinion on the forest fires.

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is letting fans insider the life of KimYe. The hip-hop wife has revealed Kanye West personally reached out to Team Donald Trump following dicey comments he made about the publicized California fires.

According to Kim, President Trump’s recent tweet about California forestry mismanagement causing the statewide destruction inspired Ye to reach out.

“When he doesn’t agree with something like that fire comment he will screengrab [and] he will send it to the people close to [Trump] and say that maybe there should be a little more empathy in this,” Kardashian West said before her panel with CNN’s Van Jones at Variety and Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit at the Jeremy West Hollywood hotel.

Lorde Calls Out Kanye West For “Jacking” Her “Melodrama” Tour Stage Design

Lorde accuses Kanye West of stealing stage design.

While everyone was celebrating Kanye West and Kid Cudi’s Camp Flog Gnaw performance, singer Lorde wasn’t feeling it too much.

Vengeance is mine saith the Lorde.

The “Royals” singer took to social media to call out the red-haired rapper for apparently “stealing” her glass box stage design she used during her “Melodrama” tour. To achieve the look, Lorde worked with designer Es Devlin who has also worked with Kanye West in the past.

Lorde’s fans immediately noticed the similarity between the designs prompting the singer to her thoughts on the alleged design theft. Of course, there were defenders of Yeezy’s use of the floating glass box during his performance pointing out Ye’s use of a floating platform during his last tour. But what might be the final nail in the coffin is Es Devlin pointing out the use of similar designs at other concerts in three separate posts.

Whatever the case, looks like Lorde might have overstepped here. Besides Ye got bigger things to worry about like his delayed “Yandhi” album. But we will let you decide on this one. You can peep all the fallout from the stage design controversy in the gallery below.

Smart Move: Kanye West and Kim Hired Private Firefighters To Save Hidden Hills Mansion

Kim K. and Kanye West are being praised after they hired a private team of firefighters to attend to their Hidden Hills mansion. Thanks to the smart move their $60 million home—and many other houses—are still standing, despite deadly California wildfires.

TMZ reports:

“…The blaze started to creep up on Kim and Kanye’s Hidden Hills mansion Friday after a mandatory evacuation of the area. The couple’s home sits at the end of a cul-de-sac and borders a field — meaning if their place went up in flames, it would start a domino effect on the whole neighborhood. Sources tell us Kim and Kanye hired a private team to battle the flames on their property. The team was armed with hoses, and also tirelessly dug ditches to create a fire break.”

The site reportedly spoke with the famous couple‘s neighbors, who’ve been thanking them for “putting a team on the front lines and saving their homes.” Shoutout to KimYe for being so clutch and let’s keep California in our prayers at this time.

Yeezy’s new album was supposed to drop on Black Friday. However, Kanye West has delayed the release of his new Yandhi album, again. 

Initially, the new project was supposed to drop in September, but that didn’t happen. Then it was thought to be dropping on November 23 aka Black Friday—now that ain’t happening either.

After linking with Kid Cudi to perform as Kids See Ghosts this past Sunday, Yeezy determined his new work just isn’t ready yet.

“It felt so good being on the stage last night with my brother Cudi. After performing again, I realize the new album I’ve been working on isn’t ready yet. I’ll announce the release date once it’s done. Thank you for understanding,” he tweeted last night (Nov. 12).

It goes without saying that Twitter is chiming in. Check out the reactions in the gallery.

Kanye West Salutes One Of Stan Lee’s Most Slept-On Marvel Comics Characters

Kanye West Saint West

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has acknowledged the death of Marvel Comics co-creator Stan Lee. The hip-hop star has hit up social media to salute Lee’s slept-on Nighthawk character.

Yeezy hit up Twitter to retweet a Nighthawk comic pic remembering Lee.

A few hours ago, R&B singer Ashanti shared footage of herself hanging out with Lee.

Yesterday, Lee’s daughter announced the crushing news to media outlets.

We’re told an ambulance rushed to Lee’s Hollywood Hills home early Monday morning and he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. We’re told that’s where he died. Lee had suffered several illnesses over the last year or so — he had a bout of pneumonia and vision issues. Stan started Marvel with Jack Kirby in 1961 with The Fantastic Four. He went on to create Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man and The Avengers. (TMZ)

A few months ago, Lee joked about not landing a huge cameo in this year’s Black Panther blockbuster.

While speaking with fellow creator Todd McFarlane earlier today at ACE Comic Con in Glendale, Arizona, Lee joked about his upcoming cameo in Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther. “I’m a little disappointed in my Black Panther cameo,” Lee joked. “I had wanted a great fight scene where I fight the Black Panther to a standstill.” (Comic Book)
