Actor Terry Crews took time out yesterday to put Russell Simmons on blast via Twitter.

The former NFL player called the music mogul out over an email that Russell allegedly sent to him encouraging him to drop his recent sexual assault charges against Hollywood agent Adam Venit.

According to Crews, Venit, made a few inappropriate sexual gestures to him that included physically groping him at a party last year.

“Message Russell Simmons sent to me regarding my sexual assault case against Adam Venit of @WME: Dear @UncleRUSH—— NO ONE GETS A PASS,” he tweeted.

According to the posted screenshot, Simmons’s email said :

“Did he ever apologize Give the agent a pass ask that he be reinstated. With great love, all things are possible.”

Crews made it clear publicly to Simmons that no one gets a pass!

This alleged email from Simmons certainly isn’t making his own case any better as a woman has come forward with sexual assault accusations against him and director Brett Ratner.

Crews has made it clear that he will not be shamed as he’s done nothing wrong.

What do you think about the email allegedly sent by Simmons?


Justice League Is Enjoyable Despite Flaws

Lady DV reviews the new movie Justice League, which has the whole nation talking…

Warning: Some mild spoilers included.

(AllHipHop Features) Let me start this review of “Justice League” by saying that I didn’t really grow up on D.C. Comics. I was more into reading novels and the encyclopedia to say the least. So, I went into this green. However, the “Justice League” is almost a guaranteed win with some of the biggest super heroes in the history of comic culture.

The movie directed by Zack Snyder exuded stellar graphics and storyline was great, though the plot was a little predictable. At some points I felt like I was a character in the game ‘Heavenly Sword’ for Play Station all while learning the history of the worlds that seemed to intertwine into present day realities. It’s almost like D.C. Comics meets The Matrix.

A war breaks out between three worlds. Enter Steppenwolf played by Ciarán Hinds who is in search of three boxes which is referenced as “Mother”. Mother is the equivalent of the knife in the “Golden Child” starring Eddie Murphy (I Digress). A force that can either create or break mankind existence in the technological age.

Henry Cavil who plays Superman dies…Batman played by Ben Affleck and Wonder Women played by Gal Gadot decides to defend his legacy while dealing with a guilt only one knows if they are into the series, yes the tension and chemistry is that thick.

They enlist the help of Flash played by Ezra Miller, a socially awkward yet sarcastically and quizzically funny kid. He very much knows his powers but is more eager to make friends.

They also recruit Cyborg played by Ray Fisher who once was human and then robotically re-modified due to a severe scientific accident. Cyborg is also a product of “Mother” and the force that science has become.

Aquaman played by Jason Momoa is the heir and current ruler of the Atlantis underground. His macho demeanor gives strength to his already superhuman abilities .

Steppenwolf is wreaking havoc with two of the boxes in his possession at this point in search of the third. The Justice league then decide that they are going to bring Clark Kent aka Superman back to life to help fight the war. Well…lets just say they succeed but Superman comes back and it seems like they instantly feel like they made a mistake!

If you are looking for something to keep you on the edge of your seat and make you laugh, Justice League delivers. They take you through the underworlds of the Atlantis and a Grecian desert war so dangerous it’s threatening mankind’s existence.

Justice League is in theaters nationwide.


As you know, Stevie J told us a few months back that the Puerto Rican Princess, Joseline Hernandez was jealous of rap newcomer Cardi B and her success!

Jealous never looks good on folks, and this “Hate Me Now” diss track is making the reality star/rapper look even worse.

There have been years or rumors of alleged drug use on Joseline’s behalf, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she was under the influence while recording this.

“Y’all ready for tomorrow #hatemenow #JOSAVELI 😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌#exposingyouhoes I think ima drop a snippet 2night 👀,” posted Joseline.

Bonnie Bella’s mom raps,

“Drag a Bronx b-tch yea I said it bloody my ass you holler blood who the hell cosigned this HO?”

I would say Cardi B should take the high road and ignore Joseline, but nah…. Cardi get her!

What are your thoughts on Joseline’s diss record?


Meek Mill has been sentenced to 2-4 years in state prison for violating probation by a Philadelphia judge.

Jay-Z has denounced the judge’s decision, citing she overruled recommendations from other officials of the court.

“The sentence handed down by the Judge — against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer — is unjust and heavy handed,” Jay-Z. “We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career.”

Meek Mill is managed by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

Meek was arrested in two times this year, once in March and another time in August. Neither of those cases resulted in charges for the rapper but the judge still ruled he violated probation. The March case misdemeanor assault and the second incident was for reckless driving and reckless endangerment.


Migos apparently want in on The Lion King remake. One member of the group reached out to Disney via Twitter to suggest the “Bad and Boujee” rhymers take on roles in the forthcoming movie.

“3 Hyenas Lions King call us [Disney],” tweeted Quavo on Sunday.

The studio revealed the full cast of the new Lion King. Proud Migos fan Donald Glover is set to voice Simba with Beyoncé playing Nala, James Earl Jones playing Mufasa, Alfre Woodard playing Sarabi, and Chiwetel Ejiofor playing Scar.

Unfortunately for Quavo, the parts of the three hyenas have already been filled. Eric Andre (Azizi), Florence Kasumba (Shenzi), and Keegan-Michael Key (Kamari) are voicing Scar’s henchman.


A former pro wrestler is blasting Sean “Diddy” Combs over his name change, which the mogul announced on his 48th birthday.

Did he took to Instagram on Saturday (November 4) to reveal that he was no longer going to go by the moniker Diddy.

Instead, he rechristened himself Love, or Brother Love and the media is already referring to the Bad Boy CEO by that name.

The only problem is, the name Brother Love is already in use by a well-known pro wresting host, who is less than pleased with the man formerly known as Puffy, Puff Daddy and Diddy.

Bruce “Brother Love” Pritchard was a popular preacher-like character on the WWF (now the WWE), where he hosted his own show interviewing the popular wrestlers of the day.

Pritchard has remained active in wrestling for decades and still hosts his own podcast called “Something to Wrestle With.”

“Maybe it’s because he’s lost all originality. Maybe it’s because he’s irrelevant,” Brother Love fumed. “Maybe it’s because he just wants people to know who the hell he is and hope that he can capitalize off some of the fame that I created way back when!”

This actually isn’t the first time Diddy has been in a Dust-up over a name change.

Back in 2002, when he announced he was changing his name from Puff Daddy to Diddy, he was hit with legal action from a producer in the United Kingdom who used the same name.

In 2006, a judge ruled Diddy was allowed to use the name everywhere except for the United Kingdom, where Richard “Diddy” Dearlove has the right to the name.


The Little Rock, Arkansas Police Department is still worried about hip-hop music, after a mass shooting in the city over the summer.

In July, a rapper by the name of Finese2Tymes aka Ricky Hampton, was involved in a shootout that left 27 people wounded at the Power Ultra Lounge.

His bodyguard and another man were eventually charged in the shooting but it has left the city’s local nightclubs and the police department on edge when it comes to rap music.

Local Police Chief Kenton Buckner has fired off a letter to local officials, expressing his concern over an upcoming meet and greet featuring Cash Money rapper Jacquees.

Chief Buckner cited past violence at Jacquees’ shows in other states, although he did not expressly call for the cancellation of the event.

But Chief Buckner’s words carry weight in the local community after the shooting.

Earlier this month, a concert featuring Moneybagg Yo was canceled, after Chief Buckner sent out a similar letter expressing concern over past violence at his shows.

Jacquees’ meet and greet and concert are planned to go on a scheduled today (October 29).


Rapper Yo Gotti has been named a brand ambassador for Puma.

The “Down in the DM” hitmaker follows in the footsteps of previously announced ambassadors, including The Weeknd, his girlfriend Selena Gomez, and his fellow Roc Nation labelmates Rihanna and Big Sean.

“Puma has been an iconic name in the fashion world for decades,” the rapper says. “Their ability to remain at the top of the game in not only sportswear but in culture and fashion, is inspirational. I’m honored to be a part of that legacy.”

Yo Gotti will collaborate with designers on several products and programs involving the fashion brand.

“Yo Gotti’s creative talent, drive and genuine passion for his fans is the perfect match for Puma,” Allison Giorgio, vice president of marketing for Puma North America, says. “He is confident and isn’t afraid to take risks and we are so pleased to welcome him to Puma and can’t wait for his fans to see what he has in store for them through our collaboration.”

In addition to his new partnership, the 36-year-old released his ninth studio album, I Still Am today (October 27).

A documentary of the same name will debut exclusively on streaming service Tidal on the same day as the album release.


Big K.R.I.T. drafted some heavy hitters for his 4EVA Is A Mighty Long Time double album. The 22-track LP will host guest appearances by T.I., Lloyd, UGK, CeeLo Green, Jill Scott, Bilal, Robert Glasper Jr., and more.

“I’m talking more about love, being excited about life, understanding depression, vices and how we medicate ourselves for what’s going on,” explains K.R.I.T. “And then I got the aspect of finally finding yourself and being happy.”

4EVA Is A Mighty Long Time is K.R.I.T.’s first independent album since parting ways with Def Jam. Listeners can expect to hear the Mississippi emcee/producer cover his personal tumult as well as political topics such as police brutality and social unrest.

“This thing that we’re going through now isn’t new under the sun, and it’s probably not going to be the last time there’s so much inequality, so much hatred, so much violence,” says K.R.I.T.
