Lil Cease and Lil’ Kim were once close colleagues as part of the Junior M.A.F.I.A. clique established by the late Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace. At the inaugural B.I.G. Family Dinner event, Cease and Kim patched up their years-long beef.

Thanks to DJ Mister Cee, fans had an inside look at the B.I.G. Family Dinner with Lil Cease, Lil’ Kim and a host of others in attendance. The Queen Bee hosted the private affair on Tuesday (May 21) at a secret location, with the epic moment taking place right then and there.

Mister Cee’s Instagram featuring an image of Lil’ Kim and Lil Cease:

THE VIBES IS BEAUTIFUL IN HERE!!!! THIS WAS LONG OVERDUE!!! I’M SO PROUD OF YOU KIM!!!! SALUTE TO LANCE “UN” RIVERA @lanceunrivera & D ROCK @invisiblebully_

From there, the DJ posted a pair of clips showing Cease reaching across the aisle and offering the olive branch to Kim, which she appeared to accept according to the footage.

It’s all water under the bridge now. Hopefully, this means Lil Cease will be hopping on Lil’ Kim’s upcoming studio LP too.

Check out the footage below.

NBA YoungBoy was the target of an attempt on his life during a drive-by shooting that injured his girlfriend and cost a Hertz employee his life during Rolling Loud in Miami earlier this month. The Louisiana rapper and his record label, Atlantic Records, are offering to cover the funeral expenses for the slain man.


The Blast
reports:

Sources tell us NBA and Atlantic Records want to cover the funeral expenses for 43-year-old Mohamad Jradi, who died earlier this month during an attempt on the hip-hop star’s life.

Jradi was a Hertz rental car employee who unfortunately got caught in the spray of bullets when the hip-hop star and his entourage were targeted while exiting the Trump International Beach Resort Miami on their way to the Rolling Loud Music festival.

Along with Mohamad’s death, three others were injured in the shooting, including YoungBoy’s girlfriend and a 5-year-old boy.

We’re told Atlantic and YoungBoy are “heartbroken” over Jradi becoming a victim, and want to do anything they can to comfort the family.

NBA YoungBoy is currently in jail for a possible parole violation after taking to social media to declare revenge over the shooting attempt.

Master P Co-Star Fatboy SSE Popped For Weed During NJ Traffic Stop

Tidal X Lil Skies "Shelby" Album Release Show

Source: Johnny Nunez / Getty

Fatboy SSE, a social media entertainer set to co-star in Master P‘s upcoming film, was arrested during a New Jersey traffic stop after police discovered marijuana. There were also bench warrants out for his arrest which led to the search of his vehicle.

TMZ reports:

According to cops in Jersey City, Fatboy was pulled over Monday night for a traffic violation. He was in the car with 2 other guys — his manager and security guard — and when cops ran his license, they discovered it was suspended. First mistake.

Second mistake? They found outstanding bench warrants … which prompted a search of his car … which is when cops say they found the weed.

Cops arrested Fatboy — government name Tyriq Kimbrough — for 1 count of possession of weed and bail jumping for the 2 bench warrants. Adding insult to injury, cops also slapped him with tickets for failure to observe a signal and driving on the suspended license.

Fatboy — who has more than 5.5 million Instagram followers — remains in custody.

Fatboy SSE is set to star in I Got The Hook Up 2 this summer.

Nipsey Hussle’s Sister Granted Custody Of Late Rapper’s Daughter

Grammy Awards 2019 Arrivals

The custody ordeal regarding Nipsey Hussles daughter has come to an end of sorts after a judge granted that the late rapper’s sister will be the girl’s primary guardian. Since the rapper’s death in March, the girl has been with the family of the rapper after claiming mom Tanisha Foster was unfit.

TMZ reports:

Tanisha Foster was in court Monday, trying to regain custody of her 10-year-old girl. Emani has been living with Nispey’s sister, Samantha, since his death last March.

Nipsey’s family was in court and squared off with Tanisha, whom they believe is not fit to care for Emani. The hearing was sealed … but there’s another date scheduled in July.

Tanisha’s lawyer, Larry Lewellyn, tells TMZ he’s working with Nipsey’s family on a visitation schedule that will be in Emani’s best interest.

As for Tanisha … she left the courtroom crying and told us she’s “pissed off.”

Foster’s lawyer is reportedly working out a deal for a visitation schedule that serves the best interest of the daughter.

Jason Mitchell Dropped From ‘The Chi’ & Upcoming Netflix Flick Amid Misconduct Claims

US-ENTERTAINMENT-TELEVISION-SHOWTIME

Source: VALERIE MACON / Getty

Straight Outta Compton actor Jason Mitchell gained rave reviews in the role of N.W.A’s Eric “Eazy-E” Wright, catapulting him to several high-profile roles. Amid misconduct allegations, Mitchell has been booted from hit series The Chi, along with losing a leading role in an upcoming Netflix film.

Deadline exclusively reports:

Rising star actor Jason Mitchell (The Chi, Straight Outta Compton) is facing a career crisis over allegations of inappropriate behavior. The specifics are sketchy, but I hear the accusations were so serious they have led to Mitchell being dropped by his agency, UTA; management company, Authentic Talent & Literary Management; a Netflix movie he had been cast in as a lead, Desperados; and the successful Showtime drama he stars in, The Chi.

I hear the dismissal from dramedy Desperados, a Good Universe production for Netflix, came first. I hear the decision was made after the producers had received information about an alleged off-set incident. The incident was investigated immediately and thoroughly, leading to Mitchell’s termination from Desperados, in which he was to star opposite Nasim Pedrad, Anna Camp and Robbie Amell.

A rep for Good Universe confirmed Mitchell has left the movie, declining further comment.

Mitchell was also quickly fired by UTA and Authentic. (Reps for both companies confirmed to Deadline that Mitchell is no longer a client but would not comment further.)

Thus far, Mitchell nor his representatives have spoken publicly regarding the allegations.

Struggle Symbiote Kodak Black Hit With $500K Lawsuit While In The Joint

Kodak Black In Concert - Los Angeles, CA

Source: Scott Dudelson / Getty

Kodak Black is comfortably aligned with the struggle as evidenced by his pending cases and current situation that found him getting locked up during Rolling Loud weekend. While sitting in the can, the Florida rapper was slapped with a $500,000 lawsuit for bailing on a trio of shows in 2017.

The Blast reports:

According to court documents obtained by the Blast, promoter Nicholas Fitts wasted no time after Kodak was arrested, in hiring a process server to head over to the jail.

Only days after the rapper entered jail the concert promoter was able to serve Kodak with the lawsuit, which was filed last month.

Fitts is accusing Kodak of blowing off multiple concerts despite having a signed deal.

The suit claims Kodak was contractually bound to perform on March 3, 2017 in New York, but he never showed up. The rapper then agreed to do a “makeup date” in April 2017 but then again didn’t show up.

Fitts says he reluctantly agreed to give him another shot and scheduled a third show, but Kodak once again blew it off.

Kodak Black, legal name Bill K. Kapri, is being held at FDC Miami as he awaits charges.

Man Accused Of Killing Nipsey Hussle Got Into Funk With Neighbor Before Shooting

Rapper Nipsey Hussle's Alleged Killer Eric Holder Makes First Court Appearance

Source: Pool / Getty

As the case builds against Eric Holder, the man accused of shooting and killing California rapper Nipsey Hussle, it has come out that he may have had a fight with a neighbor prior to the incident. Two women claim Holder allegedly pistol-whipped a man over a botched drug deal.

TMZ reports:

The L.A. County DA’s Office got the account from 2 women who say a male friend told them he was attacked at his apartment by murder suspect Eric Holder … just an hour before Nipsey’s murder.

According to the statements … Holder lived in the same building as the guy and they sometimes hung out and smoked pot. The guy’s story goes like this — Holder showed up at his place around 2 PM on March 31, and he was pissed. He accused the neighbor of selling him weed that was laced with some other drug.

They went into the hallway to talk, and according to the statements … Holder was “breathing very heavily and appeared very excited and very agitated.” When Holder got more hostile, the neighbor tried to return to his apartment but was allegedly pistol-whipped in the back of the head.

If true, this could help prosecutors looking to throw the book at Holder.

Black Mississippi Strippers Awarded $3M In Workplace Discrimination Case

Gentlemen's Club Sign

Source: Mint Images / Getty

In the state capital of Jackson in Mississippi, five Black strippers were awarded $3.3 million in a workplace discrimination case. The women argued that their working conditions were far worse than that of their white counterparts.

The Independent reports:

Five African-American strippers have been awarded more than $3m (£2.36m) by a Mississippi jury after a judge ruled the women were forced to work in worse conditions than their white colleagues.

The women were awarded the damages following a year-long case against Danny’s Downtown Cabaret in Jackson, the state’s capital, which was sued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

The commission, which challenges workplace discrimination, said the club limited when black women could work and fined them $25 when they missed a shift. It alleged the white strippers were not subjected to those fines and were given flexible schedules.

The club was also accused of forcing black strippers to work at another Jackson establishment with lower pay and worse security, while Danny’s manager allegedly used a racial slur against a black dancer.

The lawyer for Danny’s is hoping to get the award reduced and if that effort fails, he promised to file an appeal.
