NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans rapper Young Greatness was shot and killed in his home town early Monday morning, according to friends. He was 34-years-old.
Young Greatness, who's given name is Theodore Jones, was fatally shot while outside the Waffle House in the 2900 block of Elysian Fields Avenue.
According to NOPD, the shooting occurred around 1:35 a.m. When officers arrived at the scene they found the victim with a single gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead on the scene. #rapper #music
People Are Talking About Kanye’s Meeting With Donald Trump
Lil Wayne Feature Kendrick on his Carter V Album. Now you know once you put Kendrick Lamar on a track its over.
Lil James has a problem at school and he needs Diesel and Bozo to handle it. He good. They gonna take the charge.
They grew up just 15 miles apart — one in an apartment in The Bronx, the other in a house in Queens.
The ugly rivalry between two of the top women of rap smoldered for more than a year before exploding Friday when the hip-hop hellions had it out, WWE-style, at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons bash during Fashion Week.
First, a Minaj security guard threw an elbow at Cardi’s head in a lobby of The Plaza hotel.
Then Cardi threw a red platform shoe at Minaj.
At one point, new mom Cardi shouted at Minaj, “Let them talk about my daughter again!” before storming away from her in a huff, a fan video shows.
Minaj reportedly “didn’t even flinch” as Cardi B was led out of the party.
Cardi was, of course, hobbling due to her lost platform. But the look on her face was triumphant.
The pair’s clash dates back to May 2017, when Minaj name-dropped Offset — and his rap group Migos — in her collaboration with Katy Perry, called “Swish Swish.”
Silly rap beefs just get me more checks
My life is a movie, I’m never off set
Me and my amigos (no, not Offset).
Swish Swish, awww I got them upset!
The jab by Minaj, 35, didn’t sit well with Cardi, 25, who took to Instagram Live at the time to dish on “fake” people in the industry.
“A bitch like me, I was happier when I was macking in the hood,” she wrote.
“This s–t right here is so fake. When I used to be a regular bitch from The Bronx — a ’hood bitch — when somebody used to be fake to me it was cool because I could approach a bitch and punch her.”
A few months later, Minaj seemingly took another dig at her foe in a verse for the song “No Flag,” which also features Offset and Migos.
I heard these labels tryna make another me
Everything you getting little hoe is ’cause of me.
The Trinidad and Tobago-born artist quickly denied the lyrics were about Cardi.
Minaj and Cardi continued to jab at one another throughout last year, making headlines once again after featuring on the same song, “Motorsport,” in August 2017.
Minaj, a rap veteran, felt that the up-and-comer didn’t pay her proper respects.
“The only thing with Cardi that really, really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after ‘Motorsport’ came out,” the “Anaconda” rapper told Beats 1 radio’s Zane Lowe this past April.
“I remember when I first came in the game, if a female of that stature had done a feature with me on it, I would only be singing their praises and saying thank you.”
Cardi countered that she’d already kowtowed plenty.
“I already said she’s an amazing artist, paid my respect to her,” she also told Lowe.
“What do people expect? Y’all want me to say something bad. I’m not falling for that.”
Their feud superheated when Minaj seemed to insult Cardi’s talent in an August interview with Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal.
“It’s silly now to compare me to women, because there’s no women that can come in right now [and] realistically can put up the stats,” she blustered.
Hours later, Cardi responded on Instagram Live, saying she was “sick and tired of people trying to discredit me.”
During the opening ceremony, she refers to herself as “The Empress” — a cheeky nod to Minaj’s newly released album, “The Queen.”
Minaj seemed to rub more salt in Cardi’s wounds — with stinging lyrics on her new album “Queen.”
They done went to witch doctors to bury the Barbie
But I double back, kill bitches, bury the body.
Fans were convinced the artist says “Bardi” — Cardi’s nickname — instead of “body.”
The animosity continues despite their shared hardscrabble upbringings.
Minaj’s father worked as a financial executive, her mother in payroll, and were both staunchly religious gospel singers. But her father struggled with drugs and alcohol, fueling a violent temper that led him to burn down their family home when Nicki was 4 years old.
“He was attempting to kill my mother. She got out before it burned all the way down,” she told Details magazine.
By 16, Cardi claims to have joined the Bloods gang; by 19 she was a stripper.
She credits stripping with helping her escape poverty and a violent relationship.
“It really saved me from a lot of things. When I started stripping I went back to school,” she said.
Friday’s wild scuffle unfolded after Minaj supposedly mouthed off to Cardi about her skills as a parent, which set the “Bodak Yellow” rapper into a rage, throwing punches, pulling hair and even throwing her cherry-red platform.
But others say Cardi may have been looking to pick a fight when she “aggressively approached” the self-proclaimed queen of rap and said, “Let me tell you something,” as she lunged toward Minaj, TMZ reported.
When security personnel tried to break up the catfight, Cardi was elbowed in the forehead, leaving her with a sizable welt and a torn red dress.
“It was ripped totally down the back. Her ass was showing,” a fashionista told Page Six of the scene. Coincidentally, a day earlier, Minaj’s dress had also torn, revealing her own derriere.
Minaj was “completely unfazed” after the rumble at The Plaza and told police she does not wish to file charges against her foe, sources told Page Six.
She continued to party after Cardi was led away.
“Nicki walked through the crowd in the ballroom with her team,” said a guest.
“She was with her bodyguards saying ‘Hi’ to people . . . then she went up to an area with couches and watched Christina Aguilera perform.”
Outside the event, Cardi told cops she also did not wish to press charges.
“No,” she said. “I just want to leave.”
But she wasn’t totally over the fight.
“I’ve let a lot of s–t slide! I let you sneak-diss me, I let you lie on me,” Cardi ranted in an Instagram post at approximately 12:14 a.m. Saturday.
“But when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are f–kin off!!
“Bitches talk s–t in they raps but in real life they p-ssy!! This s–t really is for entertainment!” the rapper added.
Days after the chart-topping artist made the announcement, a handful of fans have come forward to reveal they were one of the lucky few to receive cash from the Astroworld creator. Although it’s unclear if Scott spent the entire $100,000, one fan — Peter Valdriz — received $800 from the musician to help cover costs for his mother’s funeral.
Valdriz told TMZ his 51-year-old mother passed away last week due to complications from a brain virus.
OK I GOT 75K LEFT. SEND YOUR CASH TAG AND TWEET #ASTROWORLD TO BE NEXT!!— TRAVIS SCOTT (@trvisXX) August 15, 2018
“For not much but hope can help,” Travis Scott wrote in a message that accompanied his $800 gift to Valdriz.
In return, Valdriz offered his thanks to Scott.
“Knowing that someone is out there trying to help us during this difficult time means the world to us,” Valdriz said while speaking to TMZ. “I personally want to thank Travis Scott for really making a tough day for my family into a day we can cherish.”
"How dare you bite the hand that feeds you,” Nicki said Tuesday morning.
Safaree responded, writing, “Unless I really cared still I could not let the mention of someone's name get me that riled up.”
Nicki clapped back with a series of tweets about their relationship and specifically took a moment to drag Safaree’s hairline into the conversation.
Samuels continued responding to his exes tweets, arguing that their relationship ended because it was too toxic. He also claimed Nicki once cut him so badly he almost died, and that she was allegedly cheating on him with Meek years before their split.
Most importantly, Safaree clarified that he and Tyga don't have the same hairline treatment doctors.
Before raging an online battle with her ex, Minaj had her Twitter fingers aimed at DJ Self over some disparaging comments he made about her album. Nicki claimed Self only made those statements because she'd refused to be affectionate toward him, but he quickly rebuked that claim.
This is also related to her beef with Safaree, because both Self and Samuels are part of the Love & Hip Hop network of shows, and are cool.
Self-appeared opposite Cardi B in several scenes, while the Bronx rapper was on LAHH for two seasons. This week, Self-seemed to suggest that Nicki's album didn't deliver as much as Cardi's. In response, Nicki promised to spill what Self formerly said about the "I Like It" rapper. No one says Cardi's name directly, but it's quite obvious given Cardi and Self's turbulent history together on the show.
It's impressive that Minaj is finding time to drag everyone online in between press stops for her new album. We'll have to wait and see if all this drama has any effect on her streaming numbers, but as they say, all press is good press. *sips tea*
Blac Chyna was photographed without her usual bum.
If this photo is anything to go by, Blac Chyna's having second thoughts about her famous butt implants. The opposite of the usual before and after photos, the one on the left shows her fully pumped up with filler, while in the righ-hand photo she looks thoroughly drained. Ms. Chyna could be taking a similar route to Kylie Jenner, who recently stopped using lip filler after having a kid. Blac Chyna has not had a kid recently, but she is dating a very young man.
YBN Almighty Jay, who is 18, has been Blac Chyna's main (if inconsistent) love interest recently. She's been harshly criticized for it so far and doubtless will be again after these photos. Considering the photos in relation to her recent relationships a certain Kanye West line comes to mind: "Blac Chyna fuckin' Rob, helped him with the weight." The line could now be reversed to include YBN Almighty Jay and some weight being surgically removed.

Lil James is too much. "Ok momma you can get 5 and you don't have to pay me back."
Offset done got himself into some trouble #Roomates! He is currently sitting behind bars after cops pulled Offset over and allegedly spotted a weapon up in the car.
According to TMZ, sources told the site that he was cruising outside Atlanta in his whip when he was pulled over for tinted windows. A witness said officers found one gun in his SUV. The problem with this is that Offset is a convicted felon and is currently on probation.
We will keep you updated on this story.
LONDON – With a platinum pen that has written dynamite hits such as Rihanna’s “Umbrella” (No.1 in more than 20 countries), Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” (which nabbed the 2010 Grammy Award for Song of the Year) and Justin Bieber’s “Baby” (the most certified song EVER), it’s safe to say Terius Nash b.k.a. The-Dream is a damn good artist.
And instead of waiting for the aforementioned records (among several others) to trickle down into riches, the celebrated singer/songwriter has struck a deal with the Merck Mercuriadis-founded company Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited to sell off 75 percent of his catalog for a reported $23 million.
The deal includes 302 songs and Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited’s own resources will dole out the payment. The remaining 25 percent will be retained by The-Dream.
“It’s critical for us to set the highest standards with our first acquisition,” Mercuriadis, who once famously managed Elton John and Guns N’ Roses, told Music Business Worldwide. “The-Dream is not only arguably the culturally most important songwriter of his generation but he has written the marquee songs for the culturally most significant artists of our time including Beyoncé, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, JAY-Z and Kanye West.
“It’s an honor for this to not only be our first order of business but also to welcome Dream to our Advisory Board. He is a catalyst on so many levels and a big part of our future.”
The-Dream has a highly active career outside of his own solo projects. In the past year alone, he worked with Hip Hop Heavyweights such as JAY-Z, Nas and Kanye West, and appeared just as enthused to enter into his new situation.
“I’m proud to be part of this beautiful venture,” the 40-year-old star added. “Merck is a music titan who began his career well before I ever imagined having one. His futuristic views captured my attention and instantly made an impact. Merck sees me as I see myself. I sought out to be my generation’s Babyface and Dr. Dre, he sees the same. In making this decision I said to Merck, ‘I need a Jimmy Iovine in my life,’ not just to nurture my songs but to also help solidify the legacy I seek for myself and my songs even after I’m gone, for my children and beyond. His reply was simply ‘I Got it!, and after [that] came action like the one you see playing out today in real time.”
Music legend Nile Rodgers of Chic and “Get Lucky” fame also attended the big signing at the London Stock Exchange building.
The pop/R&B queen — who is ranked at #53 on the list – pulled in $355 million this year, while her Hip Hop mogul husband JAY-Z yielded a whopping $900 million.
Their immense wealth is nothing the couple is shy about owning. On the song “Boss,” which is taken from their joint album EVERYTHING IS LOVE, Beyoncé raps, “My great-great-grandchildren already rich. That’s a lot of brown children on your Forbes list.”
Hov’s fortune comes from various business endeavors, including TIDAL and Sprint’s subsequent investment, which valued the company at $600 million.
Beyoncé, on the other hand, makes most of her money from touring, endorsements and album sales. However, she does own a healthy slice of TIDAL as well.
The couple is currently overseas in the middle of their On The Run II Tour, which hits the U.S. on July 25. They are scheduled to headline the 2018 Global Citizen Festival in South Africa this December.
