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.
It's been rumored for years that adult film star Kakey has gotten romantic with Drake, and now she's claiming that he bought her breast implants.
Gossip site Fameolous posted a screenshot of a comment thread on one of Kakey's Instagram posts. One user commented on her breasts, saying how they were "sittin nice [sic]," and she replied, "thanks to Drizzy." Drake has yet to respond to her claims.
Check out the message up top.
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.

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.

Examining the "current state of hip-hop" and if we really need to "blame" anyone at all.
This past weekend was set ablaze with the release of J. Cole’s fifth studio album, KOD, also known as Kids on Drugs, King Overdosed and Kill Our Demons. Still freshly released, in KOD, the North Carolina rapper offers listeners everything from food for thought to fire Instagram quotes by exploring several topics including drug abuse, depression and modern day relationships. Cole World fans know to expect only realness from the rapper, and so Mr. Dreamville chose to unapologetically chime in on the current state of today’s hip-hop. Via the song “1985,” rumoured to be aimed at young rapper Lil Pump, Cole acknowledges a sonic change in hip-hop. The rapper quotes that “everything’s commercial and its pop now, trap drums is the shit that’s hot now.” Cole goes on to describe how the new wave of hip-hop artists are spewing lyrics riddled with, or about, behaviours that are harmful to the black narrative, simply for the sake of (sometimes temporary) monetary gain.
Following Cole’s poignant and conversation-starting album release, an interview with Soundcloud darling and cult favorite Russ somehow resurfaced. Therein, the “What They Want” rapper blamed producers for the prominence of “wack music” in today’s Hip Hop. He put emphasis on producers’ failure to provide artists with both the distinctive and high quality production offered by super-producers of eras bygone, including Dr. Dre and Timbaland. According to the Atlanta-based artist, “pedantic, everything sounds the same, 140 BPM shit” is now rampant in today’s hip-hop and producers are to blame. "People blame the rappers for the state of hip-hop, but rappers are not making the music. You gotta blame the producers," he says in the interview.
Albeit a 2017 interview, it remains timely given the many conversations that are currently being had across the internet and in real life when it comes to the current state hip-hop-- a battle seemingly being waged between the “young” and the “old.” Russ’ comments, now fresh in minds across the industry, sparked reactions from several high-ranked producers who were not afraid to clap back. In a forthright picture and tweet, Metro responded by calling Russ “wack in spirit.”Grammy-award winning producer Frank Dukes (his name should sound familiar as a producer for The Weeknd, Rihanna, Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, Camila Cabello, Post Malone and more-- to show the breadth of his talent)-- voiced on twitter: “Lol Russ is a joke. What he said might actually be offensive if he didn't make rap for people who are scared of rap.” Even the producer behind Lil Pump’s budding summer record “Gucci Gang,” BigHead, contributed to the matter by blaming Russ for constantly sharing his “weak ass” opinion and holding a negative “know it all, I’m perfect but everyone else sucks and Hip Hop is ruined” attitude. Interestingly, producer Southside brought in race as an aggravating factor. “Don’t speak on black producers. And I’mma say this shit for the last time, cause’ you’re not black,” said the beatsmith matter-of-factly in an Instagram live stream. Southside also highlighted that a comparison could not be established with the likes of Dr. Dre because times have changed since, and so has music.
The following debacle leaves one question remaining for all hip-hop lovers: who is responsible for "the current state of hip-hop"? The question itself seems to leave a sour taste on the genre overall-- "the current state," as if to say, it needs a remedy. The question itself then, seems to lead with a bias-- let’s just keep that in mind, but we won't be tackling that particular question here.
To some, the sound of today’s hip-hop may prove to be melodically repetitive. Artists such as Future, Migos and Lil Uzi Vert are amongst the chart-toppers of today’s hip-hop. Briefly, all offer relatively familiar trap-based drums and a penchant for repetitive, simple, if not catchy as fuck, lyrics. On the other hand, the recent success of Kendrick Lamar in acquiring a Pulitzer Prize for his lyrically-charged project DAMN. also comes to mind. He is indeed a chart-topper and award-winner from today’s current crop of hip-hop. Instrumentally versatile, the album also includes Lamar’s second number one Billboard 100 single “Humble” which holds a BPM of 150, indubitably close to the “140 BPM” style Russ mentions. Yet, the lyrical content and method of delivery offered by Lamar remains complex, multifaceted and as such, uniquely him. Are the beats really responsible for “wack music”? Or is artistic individuality what makes the difference? And if that’s the case-- isn’t subjectivity what makes art? Who is to say what’s “wack”? Artistic individuality is just that. Individual. Art.
Statistically it seems music accompanied by instrumentals with kicks, snares, catchy string sections and heavy 808s prevail. Trap records like Rich The Kid’s “Plug Walk,” Migos’ “Walk It Talk It,” and XXXTentacion’s “Sad!” were quick to soar to the top of the charts altogether while accumulating mass plays on streaming services. In fact, each stated record currently ranks on the Billboard Hot 100 for weeks now. However, contrary to Russ’ statements, only one of those songs holds a close BPM of 146, while the others fall well below 100 BPM. To play devil’s advocate, the number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 right now is Drake’s women-empowering “Nice For What” -- with a 93 BPM, and a classic hip-hop sample.
What about the type of music that may still recall the 90s boom-bap era where Nas, Mos Def and Rakim records were what’s hot and strong bars overcame any beat? Carriers of this style of hip hop, perhaps we could look to Royce Da 5’9 and Flatbush Zombies, do not seem to garner the same level of attention from mainstream media or evenfans of hip hop as a whole. Three singles were released by Royce Da 5’9 since the year began, namely “Stay Woke” (162 BPM), “Dumb” featuring Boogie (178 BPM) and “Boblo Boat” featuring J. Cole (158 BPM). Yet, none of these records have gotten as much clout and recognition. They are unseen on the charts and unheard on the radio. The same cannot be said of tracks like Lil Pump’s “Esskeetit.” A song which not only quickly snatched a seat on the Billboard charts shortly after its release and debuted at 2.2 million streams on Spotify, but also ironically carries exactlya 140 BPM. Furthermore, simply look at the monthly Spotify listeners for Royce -- 816,022, versus, let’s say, Migos -- 27,330,915, or even Lil Pump - 11,558,527. J. Cole currently hovers in between the latter two, with 15,218,314 monthly listeners. However, we know, J. Cole broke records on both Spotify and Apple music when it comes to first-day streaming: and so, what played the biggest role in that, the beat selection (he veered further into the 808s and trap drums than previous, as if to make a point), the lyrics/artistic content, or the listener?
Streaming rates, chart-positioning and related statistics ultimately reflect what appeals to the listeners, to the fans at large: these numbers will only multiply if someone is listening. Thus, maybe it is worth considering the role that the listeners play. Who chooses what dominates the radio? What trends? What track or artist is hot, worthy of replay, and here to stay, ultimately? The people.
Some may argue that the instrumental is what makes a song top the charts, regardless of lyrical content. Others may say a good set of bars will yield success despite the sound it’s tracked to. However, one thing can be sure and it is that music remains at the service of those who consume it. Whether you enjoy listening to “Ric Flair Drip” on Sundays while cleaning the house or prefer studying to J. Cole’s take on poverty and the black narrative in “Window Pain,” music remains a subjective pleasure, the listeners alone have the power to choose what will ultimately make up “the current state of hip-hop.”
Editor’s note: We have no issues with "the current state of hip-hop." We like it.
