DONALD TRUMP VS. JAY-Z

Jay-Z is ending a busy weekend, with some beef with the President of the United States.

Hov was a guest on “The Van Jones Show” on CNN on Saturday.

During Jay-Z’s 12-minute sit-down, he discussed a number of things, including his career, his family and of course politics, as the conversation centered on Trump’s infamous “s##thole” comments about African and Caribbean countries.

“Everyone feels anger, but after the anger, it’s really hurtful because he’s looking down on a whole population of people and he’s so misinformed because these places have beautiful people,” Jay-Z said.

“This is the leader of the free world speaking like this,” while labeling President Trump a “Superbug.”

Jay-Z’s comments drew condemnation from President Donald Trump, who responded in the usual fashion, via during Twitter early this morning (January 28), citing the low African-American unemployment rate in the country.

“Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!” President Donald Trump said.

“Black unemployment is at record lows thanks to a massiveness declining trend started in 2010. Congratulations @BarackObama,” Joe Scarborough Tweeted.

KODAK BLACK LEGAL TEAM BLASTS POLICE

Kodak Black and his legal team have their sights trained on several police officers with the Broward County Sheriff’s, over the way they treated the rapper’s two-year-old son.

Kodak’s house was raided on January 18th, by the Broward County Gang Unit.

The raid was prompted by an Instagram video Kodak posted five days earlier, where the two-year-old child was shown to be in the presence of marijuana smoke and guns.

Kodak’s lawyer told TheBlast that cops left the two-year-old “on the porch in a diaper and T-shirt staring at his father while he was in handcuffs, and did not get pants or shoes until Kodak’s legal team showed up and demanded the child be taken care of.”

Kodak’s lawyer has deposed three of the officers who took part in the raid, which was supposed to be a simple probation check.

The three officers are scheduled to be deposed on February 8th.

Kodak Black remains behind bars until his next hearing on February 23rd

Kodak is facing seven felony counts in connection with the raid, which turned up a small amount of marijuana and a stolen handgun.

 

NELLY FILES A COUNTER-LAWSUIT AGAINST ACCUSER

Nelly is firing back at his rape accuser, in a counter-lawsuit.

The Saint Louis rapper is making good on his promise to sue Monique Greene for what he claims are false allegations.

Nelly’s lawsuit claims Monique Greene made her way into the VIP section, where she flirted with the rapper.

Nelly admitted to having sex with the woman, although he claims it was consensual and police never pressed charges against him.

According to the lawsuit, the woman became upset when one of Nelly’s backup dancers barged into an area on the bus, where they were having sex.

Nelly’s lawsuit claims Monique Greene’s public allegations have damaged his public image, and also caused him to lose business and bookings.

QUAVO ACCUSED OF STEALING A BEAT?

The Migos have shaken up the world. But there is a new controversy surrounding the southern Giants and it has nothing to do with Culture II. Quavo stands accused of stealing an instrumental from an up and coming producer. I am not sure how true this is as far as the stealing part is concerned, but the accusation is real. Clearly, the producer is a small fry in the game which makes it all the more easier to steal from him if it is actually true. However, for now it is just bubbling under the surface on rap message boards and a little bit on social media. The Migos seem to be to be too talented to steal but as you know these things happen just about every single day. At the end of the day, artists, producers, and other creative’s are going to have to learn to protect their work before they send it in an unsolicited manner.
