drake4Yesterday reports were going wild surrounding YMCMB’s Tyga speaking against his label any saying how he doesn’t get along with Nicki Minaj and Drake. He expressed how he would like to go independent and that he think Drake is fake but he likes his music. Well Drake decided to go on Instagram late last night and “liked” several pictures of Tyga’s baby’s mother Blac Chyna. Does this seem like a publicity stunt or is their really issues within the YMCMB camp?

A police officer shot a teen who opened fire in St. Louis Wednesday. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said that the officer shot his weapon 17 times after “at least three” shots were fired at him. Right now it is not clear how many times the 18 year old suspect was hit. The officer that shot the 18 year old was off duty and a six year veteran of the St. Louis Police Department. The officer was not shot or hurt and an investigation will decide if the officer was justified with his behavior. Ferguson is about 16 miles from where this incident happened. 

ebola

Teams that are responsible for burying bodies of deceased Ebola patients in Africa are on strike. Sources say teams in two districts of Sierra Leone have gone on strike because they have not been paid their weekly risk allowance. The specialized teams are required to handle corpses due to the virus still being active in victims after they have died. The teams are said to not have been paid their weekly salary of $100 in two weeks. Health worker Tamba Nyandemoh says they bury 17-35 bodies a day. Last week there were 121 recorded deaths and new infections in a single day.

lebron-james-doesnt-just-like-he-loves-the-new-lebron-12-shoes-from-nike

Forbes and it’s annual ranking has unveiled the top sports brands. For the third year straight Nike sits at the top and is worth about $19 billion. That $19 billion is a $2 billion dollar increase from 2013, and $2.5 billion more than ESPN. The question is who is responsible for keeping Nike on it’s throne? That answer is LeBron James. Sources say for the first time since 2007 someone other than Tiger Woods is at the top , and LeBron’s brand is worth about $37 million and brought in $53 million OFF the court last year alone from endorsements with McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Upper Deck, and Nike. The LeBron 12 was supposed to be released in October but due to cosmetic issues the shoe will be released sooner than later.

twitter-logo

Twitter is now suing the Department of Justice and FBI for the right to release information on the government’s surveillance of it’s users. The goal for the lawsuit is to achieve more flexibility regarding what the company can say about the government requesting personal information of Twitter users. Twitter Inc. claims their First Amendment rights are violated by being prohibited to share the number of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court orders the receive to give out personal information for national security reasons. Back in April Twitter sent their Transparency Report to the FBI but the Department of Justice rejected the report because disclosing information on national security letters is prohibited by federal law.

Fraud

A woman out of Georgia has been accused of filing a fake Georgia state tax return. Brigitte Jackson filed a return claiming she was owed over $94 million dollars. LOL! She never got her check and contacted the state revenue about the delay. After some calls were made agents cut her a check and told her to go to a bank inside of a supermarket to cash it. The entire tax sting was caught on tape. Jackson’s cousin Darrius White also allegedly reported $99 million in income and has been charged. Did they really think they would get away with this???

drake4

Is Drake in hot water??? Well a well known stripper named Jhonni Blaze claims that after her and Drake spent the night together she was then threatened. The Houston stripper has accused Drake and his team of threatening her life after a sexual encounter the two had. Sources are reporting that police have launched and investigation around the accusations that Jhonni was threatened because Drake’s people were worried she would go blabbing to the media. Allegedly Drake’s people from his camp were sent to her house to threaten her. Jhonni Blaze is unsure if she wants to press charges. Another side to this story circulating is that Jhonni might be pregnant with his child…but you should know not to believe everything you hear by now… moving on..

#McFactz: A Sprinkle Of #EntertainmentNews and #HipHopNews :)

Jordin-Sparks-Jason-Derulo-split

More break ups continue to emerge as “Cuffing Season” has arrived! Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo reportedly have broken up and gone their separate ways. The two have been dating since September 2011 and were engaged last year but the two just couldn’t hold on any longer *cues awwws*. Sources say that Jason has been seen with a side chick by the name of Carmen Ortega. Although I have seen pictures of the two you never really know what is going on. Sources say that Jordin knew about the affair but decided to stay with Jason because he was her first. Girl ….

wizzzz

Wiz Khalifa finally speaks on his divorce! Pretty much Wiz is saying the divorce was over before Amber Rose caught him with another woman in bed. His statement clearly was “I just didn’t want to be married to her anymore.” Wiz doesn’t really believe he was cheating and explains how he already told his friends weeks before that the marriage was over. Amber is trying to earn over a million dollars from Wiz from a prenuptial agreement the two signed prior to marriage, she also wants full legal and physical custody of their one year old child Sebastian. Do you think telling your friends your marriage is over prior to divorcing justifies cheating??? Chile…

ja-rule1

Ja Rule says men wearing shirt- skirts is part of Hip Hop now! I know you have seen the fashion changing or repeating itself all the time, but lately in Hip Hop men have taken things a new route and embrace some sort of “feminization.” With male rappers wearing kilt skirts, painting their nails, using new words, and wearing shirt-skirts from a distance you might think something off the wall. Ja Rule addresses this topic and says “You know what? If You wanna shirt-skirt, go head get you a shirt skirt. Cause this is your generation.” Ja Rule says he does look back at some of his old pictures and wonder what the hell he was wearing then but he says it is apart of being young and growing up. Ja also adds that he doesn’t think this generation is looking at it as “feminine” but more so “fashionable.” Honey I’m all for fashion and please believe I am all for anybody expressing themselves through clothing, but grown men just should not be painting their nails anything but clear. I’m not even sure I’m okay with clear. LOL!

#McFactz: #RihannasPerformance #IggyAzalea has a #SCANDAL #VibeMagazine ENDS?!

rihanna

The NFL decided to cut Rihanna’s performance for CBS’s Thursday Night Football. Four days after Ray Rice was terminated due to domestic violence the CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus says “We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we needed to have the appropriate tone coverage.” The decision was most likely made due to Rihanna and Chris Browns domestic violence case a few years ago. The musical opener was replaced by a discussion with Roger Goodell’s recent comments about Ray Rice. Hm….

iggy2

Does she or does she not? Word has been spreading that Iggy Azalea has a sex tape out! The Australian rapper claims that it is not her at first but now her legal team is now saying it might actually be her. The tape is being shopped around specifically to Vivid Entertainment by an ex boyfriend. Vivid Entertainment was behind Kim Kardashian and Ray J’s sex tape and the offer is seven figures for Iggy. Let’s wait this out and see what happens …

vibe

Vibe Magazine is no longer going to be printed! While the company employs over 100 people they have laid off 19 people in a “reduction of force.” Vibe will focus on the internet and their online property. I used to get Vibe Magazine in the mail and I loved that magazine so this is a big change over to digital! Vibe was founded in 1993 by Quincy Jones.
