Daily New (33)

Rapper Nipsey Hussle was killed Sunday afternoon, shot in broad daylight outside of his store in South Los Angeles, leaving two other people wounded, police said.
Hussle, known as much for his music as for his civic efforts in South L.A., was shot in multiple times about 3:20 p.m. and rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He was 33.
Los Angeles police closed off the area at West Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard. Shortly before 7 p.m., officers were canvassing the area near The Marathon Store at 3420 W. Slauson Ave., searching for a suspect who police said had fled either on foot or in a vehicle.
A crowd of hundreds of mourners also gathered outside the store on Sunday evening, playing Hussle’s music as the sun set. Elsewhere, several of Hussle’s fellow rappers and other celebrities took to social media to share their shock and condolences.

 

Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, was an up-and-coming hip-hop artist, who after releasing his highly anticipated debut album “Victory Lap” in 2018, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap Album.
Hussle grew up in South L.A. in the 1990s. He made no secret of his early life in a street gang, saying in a 2014 interview with YouTube channel Vlad TV, that he had joined the Rollin’ 60s, a notorious Crips gang clique, as a teenager.
“We dealt with death, with murder,” he told The Times in 2018. “It was like living in a war zone, where people die on these blocks and everybody is a little bit immune to it. I guess they call it post-traumatic stress, when you have people that have been at war for such a long time. I think L.A. suffers from that because it’s not normal yet we embrace it like it is after a while.”
Hussle was equally well-known in South L.A. for his work as a community organizer.
He was involved in the new Destination Crenshaw arts project. And he opened a co-working space named Vector 90 in the Crenshaw district, designed to call attention to the lack of diversity in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The goal of the co-working space, Hussle told The Times in 2018, was to serve as a conduit between underrepresented groups and corporate partners in Silicon Valley and beyond.
Hussle developed a deep love of both music and technology while growing up.
"In our culture, there's a narrative that says, 'Follow the athletes, follow the entertainers,'" he told The Times in 2018. "And that's cool but there should be something that says, 'Follow Elon Musk, follow [Mark] Zuckerberg.’ I think that with me being influential as an artist and young and coming from the inner city, it makes sense for me to be one of the people that's waving that flag."
Hussle combined his interests in several entrepreneurial pursuits, including the store outside of which he was shot. He called it a “smart store” because visitors could use an app to enhance their experience while shopping for his fashion brand, the Marathon Clothing.
Times staff writer Sonaiya Kelley contributed to this story.

Travis Scott During his $100,000 Twitter Giveaway

Those who weren’t blessed with a few coins from Travis Scott during his $100,000 Twitter giveaway this week can be happy to know some of it went to a good cause.

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.

 “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.”

Blac Chyna's Butt Implants Have Disappeared

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.

The-Dream Shares 75% Of His Catalog For $23M

 

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.

Forbes magazine released its list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women earlier this week. According to Forbes, Beyoncé and JAY-Z are worth a combined $1.255 billion.

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.
