"BE YOURSELF OR FIND YOURSELF BT YOURSELF"
Lamar set the record straight during an interview with The Breakfast Club at Power 105.1's Powerhouse 2013 concert in New York over the weekend, explaining that the Drizzy jabs (like his BET Hip Hop Awards cypher line: "Nothing been the same since they dropped 'Control'/And tucked the sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes") shouldn't be taken seriously. "I was having fun rapping," Lamar said. "Hip hop is a sport, people are gonna dissect lyrics and that's what it's about at the end of the day. I've got noting against Drake."
He even complimented Drake's latest release, adding, "He put out a great album again, he's doing his thing."
No word yet on how the OVO rhymer feels about Lamar's olive branch, but he wasn't too moved by the "Control" diss to begin with. Speaking to Billboard over the summer, Drake brushed off the controversial verse as "ambitious" and not much more.
A month later, he told Hot 97's Angie Martinez that Lamar went too far. "Because there's a lot of people that were mentioned that I feel like can't really go back and f--k with that guy after that."
Meanwhile, the West Coaster's "King of New York" quip is still eliciting rap responses, the latest of which came from Fabolous, also on hand for Powerhouse. "The thing about Kendrick saying he's king, don't ask me how I took it n---a," Fab told the crowd during his set. "The real n----s know all the kings come from Brooklyn, n---a!"
DMX has been released after being apprehended for driving with a suspended license and driving without insurance, reports his rep in a statement to BET.com. "DMX was released at 9:46 p.m. Eastern, Monday night [Nov. 4]. He was arrested on minor traffic charges and spent only three hours in jail."
DMX has been arrested for driving with a suspended license, TMZ reports. The Ruff Ryder was also caught driving without insurance in an unlicensed vehicle. He was on his way to a South Carolina airport. The troubled rapper (real name: Earl Simmons) is currently in custody and waiting to appear before a judge.
A rep for the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport says officers recognized X as soon as he pulled up to the terminal and were well aware of his arrest record. Apart from multiple suspended license charges, he was also arrested twice in the past three months for marijuana possession and a DUI.
The "Party Up" seemed to be making progress at cleaning up his life after his release from jail in 2011, but has been backsliding in a big way in the past year. He filed for bankruptcy last April and opened up to Dr. Phil about his addiction and arrests this past summer.
The newly-engaged couple claim that Hurley wasn't invited to the event, and once he made his way in, he, "proceeded to try to turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting the images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else," reads the lawsuit.
For Kimye, beyond it being a private family moment, it's money. E! cameras were already there ¯
the network airs Keeping Up With the Kardashians ¯ and Hurley was asked to sign a confidentiality agreement.
Kimye says Hurley literally stole their shine because, since he sold YouTube (to Google for $1.65 billion), his other Internet ideas have been flops, and he wanted to direct traffic to his new launch, MixBit. They claim Hurley did this by sending a press release out about the bootleg footage, and tweeting a link to it to his 500,000 followers.
They are seeking an undisclosed amount from him and his company, Avos Systems Inc.
The singer recently started the online campaign against cyberbullying, citing one site in particular for posting upsetting comments about her 16-year-old son. "I can't describe the anger I felt at my son being ridiculed continuously by MediaTakeOut.com," Chilli wrote.
"My son had no choice in who his mother was just like many other celebrity kids do not. It isn’t fair that our children have to deal with cyberbullying because of the career choice of their parents. Anyone under the age of 18 should not be ridiculed or targeted by MediaTakeOut.com or any other website."
She added that it's not just a matter of pride, it's a health issue for the child and the community. "Kids who experience bullying are more likely to experience mental health issues that affect their ability to sleep, eating patterns, loss of interest in activities, health complaints, and decreased academic achievement. These issues can continue to persist in the victim through adulthood. In a minimal number of cases targets of bullying may retaliate by using extreme violence. For instance, 12 out of the 15 school shooters in the 1990s were victims of bullying. Victims of bullying are also 2 to 9 times more likely to consider committing suicide."
Fred Mwangagahunga, editor of MediaTakeOut, has since issued a public apology and a promised to "take action" against the staffer responsible for the posts and put in place "safeguards" to make sure it doesn't happen again.
"MediaTakeOut.com has a strict policy against criticizing children, whether children of celebrities or otherwise. It's not clear how an article that clearly violated our stated policy was published, but rest assured that I will get to the bottom of it," he wrote. "Our sincere apologies go out to Tron, Chilli, his family and anyone else that were offended by our comments."
The rift between Drake and Nicki Minaj may be deeper than we think. The YMCMB artists were thick as thieves until their friendship went through a rough patch last year (as Drake described in lyrics from his track "Tuscan Leather"). In a recent interview, the "Started From the Bottom" rapper implied their beef was behind them, but Minaj tells a different story.
In an interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Nicki was asked if she would be following Drake's lead in not putting any YMCMB artists on her new album. "No, I'm Young Money 'til the death of me," Nicki responded. "Drake can do what Drake do but Nicki Minaj is a whole different person. I think your team is your team. Who gives a f*** about trying to be different? I'm always going to want my team to be a part of my project, no matter what, in some way."
Not a direct diss against Drake, but Minaj's comments could understandably be construed as a side-eye toward her one-time pal.
Firetrucks raced to Kenneth "Babyface" Edwards' L.A. mansion Saturday (Nov. 2) after a blaze broke out in one of the bathrooms, TMZ reports.
An in-home sprinkler system extinguished the fire before responders arrived at the scene, according to a source. Although nothing major was torched in the fire, the home sustained water damage. No injuries were reported.
A rep for the 54-year-old musician/producer could not confirm that he was around at the time, but said the residence was occupied.
The house fire comes just under a month after the music veteran received a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame in early October. A co-founder of LaFace records, alongside L.A. Reid, the 10-time Grammy winner, is credited for penning and producing hits for the likes of TLC, Janet Jackson, Madonna and Mariah Carey.
His latest project, Love, Marriage, Divorce, is a joint album with Toni Braxton and is due out Nov. 25.
Eminem's third studio album, The Marshall Mathers LP, is hailed by some as the best project from his future hall of fame collection. Critically acclaimed, 21 million in worldwide sales, and notables like "The Real Slim Shady" kicked his career into high gear and next month Em seemingly returns to his roots with The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
With the clock ticking on the unfinished project pressure is mounting, Em explains in the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine. "Right now I'm probably working harder than I've ever worked in my life," he says. "Calling it The Marshall Mathers LP obviously I knew that there might be certain expectations.
"I wouldn't want to call it that just for the sake of calling it that. I had to make sure I had the right songs — and just when you think you got it, you listen and you're like, 'F---, man! I feel like it needs this or that to paint a whole picture.'"
Helping in landscaping Em's vision is Rick Rubin. The legendary beat master and mind behind Def Jam Records produced "Berzerk," the album's lead single. "Getting him was like, 'Holy s---!'" says the Detroit MC. "As many genres of music that he is able to f--- with, he's like Yoda. I couldn't do it. You sit me there with a rock group, I don't know the first f---ing thing about banging on the drums."
Aside from the title, the album isn't "necessarily a sequel," but a "revisitation" of the first installment. "So there's not gonna be, like, continuations of every old song on there or anything like that," Em explains. "To me, it's more about the vibe, and it's more about the nostalgia."
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's proposal video was leaked to the Internet and the couple plans to sue, TMZ reports. Unofficial footage landed on the 'net not long after West popped the question at San Francisco's AT&T Park.
Sources say the couple has an idea of who secretly recorded and leaked the video. The person involved signed a confidentiality agreement and broke the contract by uploading the footage.
'Ye, 36, proposed to his girlfriend on her 33rd birthday Monday (Oct. 21) with her family and their infant daughter, North West, on hand. The Chicago rapper dropped a reported $30,000 to rent out the park and $1.6 million on a 15-carat diamond engagement ring. West also arranged for "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" to flash across a scoreboard and commissioned a 50-piece orchestra to play the reality star's favorite song, Lana Del Ray's "Young and Beautiful."
