Lil Yachty announced Tuesday night that his third LP is finished and he’s ready to drop it. Yachty posted on Instagram that his Lil Boat 3 album will drop on May 29.
The “Peek-a-Boo” rapper posted the cover art on his social media. In the tagline, it reads “the third and final installment in the Lil Boat series” meaning that Lil Boat’s next LP will bare a different title.
Yachty dropped his latest single “Oprah’s Bank Account” featuring Drake and DaBaby in March coincidentally (or maybe not) on the 2 year anniversary of the release of Lil Boat 2.
In the social media post announcing the release date, Yachty also noted that the LP will feature 19 new songs.
The Quality Control rapper is gearing up to release his fourth studio album. Since his last project, Nuthin’ 2 Prove, Yachty has lent his pen to his QC label mates. The “Who Want the Smoke” rapper co-wrote City Girls’ Summer anthem, “Act Up.” During the music video, Yachty even pauses Yung Miami to show her how she should recite a part in the verse.
Now that his album is done, Lil Yachty is focused on promotion. He took to Twitter recently to put the world on notice. He feels that people still discredit him, despite his past success as an artist.
Based on his tweet, it looks like Lil Boat is on a mission to wake a lot of people up with this upcoming album. Quality Control currently has an elite roster full of hitmakers, including Migos, Lil Baby and City Girls. Now that JT is back, City Girls are whole once again. The anticipation for the Girl Code intensified upon’s JT’s release. So far the duo has released two singles, “JT First Day Out” and “You Tried It.” After the success of “Act Up,” it is possible that Coach K or Pee will look to his pen for other upcoming projects on the label.
In the meantime, the Atlanta rapper is ready to take the first quarter of 2020 by storm. There has been no release date for an album, nor a single, but fans can expect something soon from Lil Boat.
You want to head into the new year with all of your bills squared away, that won’t be the case for Offset. A jeweler is claiming the “Clout” rapper owes him some money for jewels he purchased back in 2018.
According to TMZ, Cardi B’s husband owes $47,000 to a popular LA jeweler for some bling he bought over a year ago in October, and, of course, he got receipts.
Peter Marco of Extraordinary Jewels Beverly Hills is going after the Migos rapper for $47,000, for what he claims are unpaid fees from an October 2018 transaction at his store.The legal docs — obtained by TMZ — include a copy of an invoice allegedly showing Offset bought some bling for $110k, but only paid $63k at the time … leaving the balance of $47k.According to Marco … his legal team sent Offset a letter in early December demanding the payment within 7 days, but it looks like they didn’t get it. So now, the jeweler wants the full amount … plus interest and attorney fees.The lawsuit also names Quality Control Music COO, Kevin “Coach K” Lee, the music label the reps Offset’s rap group The Migos. A rep for Coach K reached out to the celebrity gossip site claiming Lee is “perplexed” as to why he is named in the lawsuit.
“A rep for Coach K tells us he’s absolutely perplexed as to why he’s included in the lawsuit. We’re told he had absolutely no knowledge of the sale and wasn’t involved in any capacity, nor does he know who Peter Marco is — the rep says K rarely even buys jewelry for himself — other than the occasional vintage watch from a seller in Atlanta.”
In shocking allegations from legal documents obtained by TMZ, Lira Galore is accusing Quality Control Music CEO P of physically assaulting her at least five times during the first eight months of her pregnancy with their daughter.
Galore says that in five separate incidents P, whose real name is Pierre Thomas, punched her and choked her repeatedly and in at least one incident, ripped her diamond ring from her finger, dislocating it.
Galore alleges that Thomas has tried to buy his way out of trouble with her, copping her a $50K SUV following an altercation last summer and broke the window on the same SUV in another physical confrontation just two weeks later.
The allegations arose after P filed for joint custody of their daughter in May, with Galore responding requesting sole physical custody because of Thomas’ alleged physically violent behavior.
P, who’s responsible for the success in careers of artists such as Migos, Cardi B, Lil Baby, and others, has an estimated worth of $50 million. Galore wants $15 million of his stash for her injuries.

They say there is no such thing as a dumb question? The Breakfast Club’s anchor DJ Envy put that to the test. The morning show host asked a head ass question about Yung Miami getting shot at during a drive-by shooting attempt despite being pregnant.
The incident in question took place on Friday during an interview with Quality Control’s CEO Pierre “P” Thomas and COO Kevin “Coach K” Lee. Envy asked the two men what was more shocking: Yung Miami getting pregnant or the rapper’s car getting laced with bullets while she was in it.
As you can imagine, the question of astronomically dumb proportions left P and Coach K with the most puzzled looks on their faces and understandably so.
Envy’s question got his EGGO waffle complexion looking self thrown in the toaster that it is Twitter with users roasting the DJ up and down timelines. We don’t know what Envy was thinking at the time, but he’s gotta do better. You can peep all the reactions to the ridiculous query in the gallery below.
Quality Control Music showcased an impressive cover art for Control The Streets Vol. 2 on their social media with a variety of private jets and with the release coming Friday, the team has shared their tracklist.
There’s a surge of female rappers rising from different parts of the world, and some controversy has emerged with it including ghostwriting.
Ghostwriting has always been shamed in Hip Hop, with the exception of female rappers, but it is normalized in the millennial Hip Hop game. Ghostwriters became a hot debate after Lil Yachty revealed that he was the main writer for City Girls’ smash hit, “Act Up.”
The duo doubled down on the claims and featured their label mate in the music video where he flexes his songwriting and cadence set up for Yung Miami to recite.
Despite the single’s success, there are still some people who want to deduct points because it wasn’t fully written by the Miami rap duo. A few leading ladies of the female Hip Hop circle took their stance including Caresha herself. She was prompted to sound off after an Instagram user boasted that JT is the rap talent keeping the City Girls afloat. “And you still know my sh** word for word NEXT,” she clapped back.
Cardi B had her follow up and defended Yung Miami’s claims. “I bet you rap that whole f**king song with your whole motherf**king heart, b**ch!” Cardi said. “I bet you use they accent though! You not using Lil Yachty accent, you using they accent! The f**k! Y’all be singing that song with y’all whole f**king chest. Y’all b**ches be hating.”
Other femcees chimed in like Asian Da Brat and Megan Thee Stallion who have both made it clear that they pen their own rhymes.
The new mom went on to talk about how blessed she is but also mentioned the pains of childbirth. “Blessed. My daughter is perfect,” the wrote. “However when I say giving birth ain’t no hoe… lord,” she added.
Meanwhile, no public announcement from Quality Control cofounder Pee but he did post a photo of himself and his little one on his IG Story.
More and more celebrities seem to be speaking out against The Shade Room as of late,Cardi B being one of them. Taking to Instagram, the “Clout” rapper had a lot to say about the mass media platform, insisting that it “fuels drama” between artists and more.
“This Water buffalo built b*tch, f*cking Angie, the owner of The Shade Room… because she knows that she’s not allowed to post me, so what does she do? She posts mad sh*t of people that she knows that I’m associated with,” Cardi claims.
“Everybody that they know that I’m cool with, they always try to get them set up for people to talk sh*t,” she goes on. “Offset donated $25,000 to the Ellen foundation for the kids in Africa. Did The Shade Room post it? No… have they posted any positive sh*t and investment talk that he’s been talking about in his interviews? No! But they sure posted the way he had drama with his baby mom. They sure posted about his court cases, right?”
Cardi continued by stating there seems to be a “hate campaign” against Quality Control. “That sh*t is getting wack!” she said “It’s trash… how do people want us to change? For what? Why change if y’all only post the f*ck sh*t that happens in our f*cking lives? Y’all don’t post the change, y’all don’t post the good, y’all don’t post the accomplishments. Y’all post the f*ck sh*t.”
She then went into discussing R. Kelly and Michael Jackson constantly going viral for alleged pedophilia. Responding to people who ask why are there documentaries about these artists, she said “Let me tell y’all why…because y’all make people feel like it’s OK to do so. Why wouldn’t a white caucasian person try to capitalize off the drama that happens in the urban, in the black entertainment business when Black-owned blogs capitalize off their own drama and problems? You don’t see Donald Trump, you don’t see Charlie Sheen sh*t going viral every year,” she adds.
The new mom ended her statements by saying that Black blogs capitalize off of Black drama, causing white publications to do the same. “Stop claiming that y’all for the people, when y’all fuel drama in between these artists,” she added.
Watch portions of what she had to say up top and see that part about R. Kelly and Michael Jackson here. Do you agree with all of her comments? It’s worth mentioning that Surviving R. Kelly was largely the work of dream hampton, a Black woman… and also, Donald Trump is literally always going viral for the f*ck sh*t he does — literally, every other day.
But to comment on her overall point, is The Shade Room bad for the culture? Chime in.
Rumors began swirling about that Cardi B was set to launch a lawsuit against the Quality Control Music but it appears the news isn’t true. In a now-deleted Instagram post, the Invasion Of Privacy star shot down the chatter against the lawsuit, while referring to Quality Control as “family.”
The “Money” rapper posted a screen grab on Wednesday of multiple news reports claiming she was suing the Atlanta label that puts out Migos’ music and poured cold water on them all with her caption.
“BIG F–KIN LIES wow !” she wrote. “This is sooo scary who come up with this ? Don’t ya know we family!”
The reports are tied to self-described “autograph hound” Giovanni Arnold’s lawsuit alleging that the famous couple orchestrated his beatdown after he asked the “Bodack Yellow” emcee for her autograph outside the Mark Hotel following last May’s Met Gala.
To show off how unbothered she was, Cardi concluded in her deleted IG post that all folks should be worried about is her song “Twerk” charting well and that her husband Offset’s new upcoming album is “beautiful.”
