Young Thug & YFN Lucci Reignite Feud Following "Slap" Comments

Read more >>>

It was a busy evening for Young Thug and YFN Lucci last night. The two ignored Lil Duval's "Living My Best Life" advice and went back and for on Instagram to reignite a beef after Thugger got on Instagram Live and said that he would slap Lucci. The two rappers have had a long-standing feud that goes back years and at one point it escalated when Lucci messaged Thug's girlfriend Jerrika Karlae, causing the two to throw out empty threats. They've laid low ever since and haven't had much to say to one another, but the dust was kicked up once again with Thugger's "slap" comments.

Lucci snapped back by posting a video to his Instagram story where he made it clear that Thugger wasn't slapping anybody. Across the screen, he wrote the word "f****t," and called Thug a "punching bag" as his friends instigated in the background. 

Not to be outdone, Thugger returns with yet another video, this time telling Lucci that he would "slap the s**t out your lil bum ass." Thug said as soon as he sees Lucci things are going to turn physical as he continues to promise to put hands on him.

To round things to a close, Lucci posts a clip of himself zooming in and out of his grill as he tagged Karlae in the video. He also wrote, "Ya husband ain't nun," with a laughing cat emoji. Hopefully, these two can keep the peace, and if not, put their grievances on wax so we can at least get a few good bars off of this instead of any actual violence.

Read more >>>

As R. Kelly's attorneys prepare his defense for his upcoming trial, the singer's ex-wife and children are reportedly set to star in the next season of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta. Drea Kelly and her three children will appear on the WEtv show, and according to The Blasttwo of their three kids are still minors, and typically, when underage children are set to be on reality television, both parents need to give permission. However, since Kelly allegedly hasn't had contact with his children for years, Drea moved forward with the contract without him.

It is still unknown how much Kelly will be a topic of conversation on the show, but The Blast claims that the focus of the family's storyline will be on 21-year-old Joann, also known under her stage name Buku Abi. The show will give her a platform for her singing career. Just days ago Kelly took to Instagram to break his social media silence by singing Joann happy birthday.

Meanwhile, Kelly's lawyers have a long, hard road ahead of them. TMZ reports that they're in the midst of shaping his defense, and in order to do so, they're requesting copies of the alleged sex tapes that the prosecution claims are of Kelly and underage girls. Steven Greenberg, Kelly's attorney, tells TMZ that he should begin receiving the prosecution's materials as early as next week, however, they don't know exactly what will arrive.

Greenberg further claims that once he receives the alleged sex tapes, he plans on ordering a complete forensic analysis of the materials if he believes that his client is featured on them. If not, then they're going to pick up speed an attempt to start the trial as soon as possible. It's also reported that Kelly, who can't leave the state of Illinois, has been trying to book shows overseas in order to bring in some money.

Cardi B, Migos, & Security Team Cleared Over Last Year's Met Gala Attack

Read more >>>

Rappers Cardi B and Migos can breathe a sigh of relief now that they're off the hook for the fight that broke out after the Met Gala in May of last year. The fashion event is a place for the who's who of the entertainment industry to walk the red carpet, and usually, nothing troublesome goes down. If anything, you may see a celebrity or two trip over a piece of couture threads, but that's about as crazy as it gets.

That is, until last year when a fan, Giovanni Arnold, was allegedly harassing Cardi B. and crew for an autograph. Arnold walked alongside Cardi, but was getting a little too close for comfort. Before you know it, a scuffle broke out on the street right in front of The Mark Hotel. There were rumors that Arnold was suing Migos and Cardi for the assault and that the rappers' security teams were in trouble with the law for the fight.

However, TMZ now reports that the team can rest easy because they won't be facing charges in connection with the assault. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Arnold is refusing to cooperate with NYPD, even though he can clearly be seen in the video being wrestled to the ground. The case has reportedly been closed, and the team nor the rappers are being held responsible.

However, they all may still be facing a case, seeing that Arnold had hired attorney Daniel Szalkiewicz to represent him in a civil lawsuit where he claims that he had injuries on his face, neck, back, and various parts of his body.

Wendy Williams' Husband Kevin Hunter Speaks Out About Wife's Sobriety

It's been a trying time for talk show host Wendy Williams. She recently admitted that she's been residing in a sober living home to battle her addictions to cocaine and crack cocaine. She's openly admitted that in the past, she was once a barely functioning addict, and after taking a leave from her show, she's back, with new struggles.

"For some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house," she revealed. "And you know I've had a struggle with cocaine in my past. And I never went to a place to get the treatment. I don't know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped."

That news came right in the midst of some personal drama as reports ran wild that Williams' husband was carrying on an affair. After tearfully admitting that she was living in a sober residence, photos surfaced of Williams' husband, Kevin Hunter, on vacation with his mistress. This is allegedly what has caused Willaims to go through her downward spiral, including reports that allege the mistress may even be pregnant.

Hunter and Williams have been married since 1997 and although he hasn't had much to say during this time, he finally broke his silence when he offered up a hopeful update to ET. “Wendy is doing well. We’re doing well as a family. We are moving forward with working on her sobriety and doing the work to help others, not just ourselves,” he said. "It is a family process. Anybody that has to deal with this knows this a family process… and we are dealing with it and moving forward.”


Travis Scott & Kylie Jenner Visit Nas' Restaurant With Baby Stormi

Contrary to reports that Travis Scott and girlfriend Kylie Jenner are having a difficult time with their relationship, the parents seemed as if all was well when they were caught by TMZ leaving the Los Angeles restaurant Sweet Chick, an eatery where fellow rapper Nas is named part owner. The couple has much to celebrate as Scott just broke the L.A. Forum venue records with multiple sold-out shows within a 12-month period, while also bringing in $1.7 million in just one night.

He also recently sat down with Nas for an interview for Playboy magazine where the old school and new school artists had an interesting dialogue about hip hop. "Speaking of a time before all this technology, it was like, 'Okay, I rap.' You had to get to this popular producer in your city," Scott said. "He would hear your s**t, and maybe he’d let you record and give you a beat. Then he’d bring you to the DJ, and radio was the main problem."

"But now it’s like, man, I got my own social media," he continued. "I can drop my s**t. I can cater to my own followers. People can look at my s**t if they want to. It’s not like the radio, where somebody can stop people from hearing me. I can yell it loud right now: I want to rap! If people want to catch on to it, they can catch on to it. And then, if you want to explain what’s going on in your personal life, you talk to your fans too. Back then you had to do a press conference."

Nas agreed. "You can reach the world faster—a lot faster than back then. That’s a great thing, because it was mind-boggling trying to figure out how to get this message out to people and market your record at the right time and then drop a single six weeks before the album. That’s gone."
