Remy Ma wins big at BET Awards

Remy Ma took home the award for Best Female Rapper last night at the BET awards breaking Nicki Minaj's 7 year streak! Remy definitely deserved the honor in my opinion. Someone pointed out the fact that Remy was the only nominee that actually released an album this year(her joint album with Fat Joe) which I didn't even realize. Female rappers have no problems putting out songs or getting on features but putting out albums is a totally different story. Congrats to Remy Ma for her win! Now as far as the BET awards is concerned, I was not home to watch the telecast as I was out being social. I did however had the ability to capture the most talked about moments and performances thanks to social media. One of the highlights of the night based on my seeings was the reunion of famed R&B group Xscape who sang a medley of their hits. Bruno Mars opened the show. Future and Kendrick Lamar performed the remix to "Mask Off". French Montana performed his hit single, "Unf…

Nicki Minaj's ex Safaree jumped by Meek Mill and his goons

This weekend is the BET awards(airing Sunday June 25 on BET) so there are a lot of festivities commemorating the telecast this week. DJ Khaled held a party at his mansion and Safaree was in attendance and upon leaving(I assume) he was greeted by Meek Mill exiting a SUV and being run up upon by some goons likely associated with Meek Mill. The video of the melee quickly made the rounds on all the blogs. Meek Mill responded on social media insisting that he was in the studio complete with pictures and the like. But upon closer inspection, Meek Mill was present during the melee once more footage of the video surfaced. What problem could Meek Mill possibly have with Safaree? Hmmm...could it be one Nicki Minaj? I don't EVER recall Safaree bad mouthing Meek Mill in the press unless I missed something. Prior to all this Safaree was photographed with Nicki's arch nemesis, Remy Ma and her husband Papoose. More as this story develops...

Nicki Minaj reveals upcoming collaboration with Trina

Nicki Minaj surprised fans when she revealed through Twitter that she and Trina have recently collaborated. The revelation caused a frenzy resulting in the news to cause "Nicki & Trina" to begin trending on Twitter. It's funny because some people were acting like this is the first collaboration between the rappers when it fact it will mark their fourth collaboration. Whose album will this collaboration appear on is unknown. Trina revealed the guest list on her upcoming album awhile ago and Nicki wasn't one of the guests unless things have changed. Maybe it could be for Nicki's album but she's been extremely tight lipped about it. Are you all looking forward to hearing this new collaboration between Trina and Nicki Minaj? In other Nicki Minaj news, the rapper revealed that she has two new songs on DJ Khaled's new album, "Grateful" which will be available tomorrow on June 23. The big question is if Nicki will be throwing more shots at Remy. I…

Beyoncé fans mad at Mathew Knowles

When news outlets started reporting that Beyoncé had secretly given birth to her twin babies, everyone in the Beyhive(and beyond) were ecstatic. But when the twins' grandfather, (the infamous)Mathew Knowles posted a congratulations to his daughter, fans were upset. Fans felt that Mathew should of respected Beyoncé enough to let her make her own formal announcement or even dad, Jay-Z. Personally I don't think anything was wrong with him doing this. He's excited about the birth of his grandchildren and we all knew that Beyoncé had had her babies. Also being the private person, Beyoncé is, she likely wasn't going to make an announcement(anytime soon) about the birth of her babies but I bet you she has footage of their birth and will share during her next album project(Beyoncé usually reveals video footage of her private life during her tours or during her new album projects). I do think some people acted out of order with this and that's okay if you disagree with me.…

Mobb Deep member Prodigy dead at age 42

Yesterday the news of Mobb Deep rapper, Prodigy's passing sent shockwaves through the music industry and on social media. Prodigy was 42 and had a lifelong battle with sickle cell anemia. Prodigy had been on tour before falling ill and took a few days off to recover. TV show host, Wendy Williams spoke on the late rapper today and revealed how he was supposed to perform at her Block Party next month. She also said that she ran into him two months prior on the street. R.I.P. Prodigy. One of Prodigy's former nemesis, Jay-Z has not only added the "hyphen" back to his name but has revealed that he will release his new album, "4:44" on June 30 via TIDAL and Sprint. The first song, "Adnis" is about his father and their estranged relationship. I haven't heard the song and as for the album I'm sure we can expect a collaboration with his wife, Beyoncé. Are you looking forward to Jay-Z's new album? In other music news..Keyshia Cole is joining &q…

Azealia Banks mad at singer for copying her style

Another day. Another Azealia Banks beef. This time Azealia is upset at up and coming singer SZA(whose new album, "Ctrl" debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 Charts) who she feels copied her style in her video for "Drew Barrymore"(which also features the famed actress). There was a still (click here to see it) floating around of SZA from her video that IMMEDIATELY reminded me of Azealia Banks' "Slay-Z" mixtape(click here to see it) when I seen it. Before I know it, Azealia was tweeting about it and of course social media picked up on as it will with their own thoughts. Now I will say the still of SZA was definitely influenced by Azealia. Now whether it was SZA herself or her costume designer for the video, the influence is obvious in my opinion. You know they say "imitation is the highest form of flattery". I don't have anything against SZA but I'm just stating the obvious. Of course Azealia went on to say how she had a boxing party an…

Azealia Banks speaks on collaborating with Iggy Azalea

Has hell frozen over? Well I was on Twitter earlier today and Azealia Banks was tweeting about doing a possible collaboration with her nemesis, Iggy Azalea much to the surprise of her followers(including myself). Azealia feels a possible collaboration would silence the (rap) girls this Summer if it were to happen. There has been no word if Iggy has responded yet. In the meantime, Azealia will drop a new single, "Escapades" this Friday June 23. Azealia also said that she's doing an interview with XXL magazine. In other music news, a teaser for the new season of VH1's "Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" features singer Keyshia Cole. The show will also star series regulars Ray J and Teairra Mari alongside new members singer, Brooke Valentine(song: "Girlfright") and Chanel West Coast(MTV show, "Ridiculousness"). Will you be watching the new season? The rumor of Keyshia Cole joining "LHHH" has been running rampant for awhile and now its…
