As the news of Aretha Franklin’s medical condition continues to spread, members of the Hip Hop and R&B community have come out in droves to show their support.

Franklin — who iconically earned the distinction as the Queen of Soul — is reportedly “gravely ill” in a Detroit hospital. WDIV-TV anchor Evrod Cassimy broke the news via Twitter on Monday morning (August 13).

“BREAKING NEWS: I am so saddened to report that the Queen of Soul and my good friend, Aretha Franklin is gravely ill,” he wrote. “I spoke with her family members this morning. She is asking for your prayers at this time. I’ll have more details as I’m allowed to release.”

According to Showbiz 411, Franklin was diagnosed with cancer in 2010. The 76-year-old’s last performances include the Elton John AIDS Foundation gala and the Philadelphia’s Mann Center last year.

Franklin was born in 1942 in Memphis, Tennessee. Over the course of her career, she’s pumped out 42 studio albums, culminating with 2017’s A Brand New Me. She’s responsible for timeless classics like “Respect” and “Son Of A Preacher Man.”

The 17x-Grammy Award winner’s music has been sampled by countless Hip Hop artists, including 3rd Bass, Mos Def (Yasiin Bey), Kanye West, Big Sean, Nas, EPMD, Outkast and Dr. Dre.

Missy Elliott, DJ Premier, Ciara, Mariah Carey are just a handful of those sending a little prayer to Ms. Franklin on social media.

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.

While starting reports had Lebron James declaring his choice this coming Tuesday, his office Klutch Sports has formally spilled the beans, declaring that James has inked a 4-year, $15.3 million manage the Los Angeles Lakers.

The fourth year of the agreement will accompany a player alternative and imprints the longest contract James has marked since marking an arrangement for a long time with the Heat in 2010.  

The general presumption was that Lebron would be made a beeline for the City of Angels normally to look toward another title winning time and to keep his family together as his 13-year old child is slated to play with the Sierra Canyon High School ball squad.

"On the off chance that everyone takes a gander at it with a child at that age, you would prefer not to be far from him amid that timeframe," Gary Payton noted prior in the year. "Amid the time that we're having, ball is educational time. I imagine that he needs a dad amid that time and that is it. I don't think LeBron is that sort of parent, I think he needs to associate with his child a considerable measure and see his child play a ton."

Los Angeles additionally gives another window of chance to James. As The Hollywood Reporter calls attention to, James additionally has his SpringHill Entertainment creation organization with Maverick Carter, and a move to Hollywood could make things all the more less demanding to monitor.

Right now, SpringHill has credits with Starz's Survivor's Remorse arrangement and is as of now creating reboots of exemplary movies like House Party and Space Jam.

 

 

LeBron James’ 4-year/$154 million contract averages out to 38,500,000 a year — or

$3,208,333.33 a month
or
$740,384.62 a week
or
$105,479.45 a day
or
$4,394.98 an hour.

So, there’s that.

ATLANTA, GA – It seems 21 Savage was following 50 Cent’s “get the strap” mantra over the weekend. The Slaughter Gang rapper was caught on camera flashing a gun in the middle of a brawl on Saturday (June 9).

According to TMZ, 21 was present at a Atlanta area event called the “Big Ass Pool Party” and a large group of people crashed the festivities. TMZ’s sources claim the  argument  began when one of the crashers began talking to a woman in 21’s clique. A crasher allegedly pulled out a gun, which prompted 21 to grab his own piece.

Video of the incident showed 21 grabbing a firearm as the brawl spilled out into a yard. One man was knocked to the ground in the skirmish, but no shots were fired. Police shut down the party upon their arrival.

Like many rap artists, Drake is no stranger to beef. But the latest involving Pusha T and his killer new diss track, “The Story of Adidon,” has left some fans and onlookers scratching their heads. Why was Drake in blackface? Where did Pusha get that photo? Does Drake really have a secret love child? And what’s all this about invoices and fashion wars, again?

On Tuesday, Pusha T dropped “The Story of Adidon” on YouTube without a lot of fanfare, but it immediately caused a sensation, garnering 2.5 million views in less than a day. And no wonder — was that Drake in blackface on the cover? (Yes. Yes it was.)

Pusha T Diss Drake. By saying Drake has a child from a kid from a stripper. Pusha T also stated that drake dad left him at the age of five. Pusha’s track was a full-on Drake diss, containing lyrics like, “Let’s have a heart-to-heart about your pride / Even though you’re multi, I see that your soul don’t look alive.” The song mocks Drake’s dad, skewers Drake’s attitude toward blackness, and accuses Drake of being a deadbeat dad to Adonis, the son he’s rumored to have fathered with a French woman named Sophie Brussaux, a former porn actress, in October 2017.

It seems Meek Mill and Drake’s beef is truly a thing of the past. A snippet of Meek rapping over The Notorious B.I.G.’s “What’s Beef” emerged online featuring a shoutout to the Drake. 

Meek and Drake were bitter enemies during one of the biggest beefs in recent Hip Hop history, instigated by the Dreamchasers boss calling out Drizzy for allegedly using ghostwriters in 2015. The two famously traded disses and insults before things finally settled down in 2017. Meek’s incarceration seemed to be the nail in the feud’s coffin, complete with Drake publicly lobbying for his rival’s release from prison.

In a recent interview with Hot 97, Meek entertained the idea of a collaboration with Drake. Prior to their feud, the two teamed up for 2015’s “R.I.C.O.” off the former’s Dreams Worth More Than Money album.

“It’s possible,” Meek told Hot 97’s Ebro Darden about working with Drizzy. “Everything is possible. I ain’t got no hate towards him and I don’t believe he got hate towards me. When I was in the situation, I seen in the media. He said ‘Free Meek Mill.’ That was when I’m at my down point, where I don’t really got anything going with music. A lot of people can say, ‘He wants to attach with what’s going on.’ I don’t really care about that. Before we had a little rap issue, I knew him as a person and he supported.”

A 28-year-old Arizona woman is accused of molesting two young children and selling videos of the acts on the internet.

Court documents and Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone say his office began investigating after receiving a tip from a friend of Harwood who discovered the videos after Harwood gave the friend access to her email account so he could help her play the Pokemon Go video game.

Arizona Central reports the children involved are 3 and 6 years old.

When confronted, she allegedly told police that she recorded the videos for a man she met online who offered to pay her to send them to him.

According to law enforcement, Harwood allegedly needed the money and did not want to disappoint the man, with whom she had been sexting for some time.

Harwood remained jailed Wednesday in lieu of $150,000 bond. It’s not immediately known whether she has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.

New River is a rural community 33 miles (53 kilometers) north of Phoenix.

The Sheriff's Office said they are pursuing a warrant to arrest the man who purchased the videos from Harwood.

It is dismal to declare that rising rapper Lil Lonnie has been murdered in a lethal shooting yesterday. XXL reports that Lonnie was murdered the previous evening, just before midnight. He was twenty-two.

Apparently, Lil Lonnie was driving a car when he was shot; afterward,  his car crash into the front of a house. The report indicates that he was shot multiple times, although other details are scarce at the moment. The WDAM indicates that Lonnie Taylor (the rapper's real name) was pronounced dead on arrival, but the woman riding with him managed to remain unharmed. Police claim that Lonnie's car was fired on from back of his car, which indicates that his shooters were most probably following him down Montebello Drive. 

Lonnie was on the rise in the South, with his popular mixtape They Know What’s Goin’ On landing him on top;  Now, Lonnie's life has ended, and his Instagram is being flooded with blessings and condolences. Sadly, these shootings continue to happen to up and coming artist, particularly in the South. Hopefully, those who murdered Lil Lonnie will be found and taken into custody. Our prayers go out to Lonnie's family. 

Rest in peace Lil Lonnie.
