Nicki Minaj Is Back On Instagram After Three Month Hiatus

Nicki Minaj is back on Instagram after taking a three-month hiatus.
The Young Money rapper stars in a new Mercedes-Benz commercial
and she posted the ad on her Instagram feed which is her first post
since December last year. This could be a clear sign that she is
gearing up to make a grand return to social media and to the music
scene. Nicki Minaj has been locked down in the studio for the past
three months working hard on her forthcoming album. We don’t have a
release date or title, but we know for sure it’s coming this year.
We’re told by sources inside her circle that she scrapped everything
that she worked on last year and make a fresh start with this
project. “She pretty much archived everything she recorded last
year and start this project with a clean blank slate and the risk and
hard work paid off because from what I heard so far is dope,
definitely will be her best project to date,” sources said.
In her post on her Instagram feed, Nicki Minaj proudly promoted
TIDAL and Mercedes-Benz. “I don’t say hi, I say “keys to the
Benz.” Link in bio for full commercial. @mercedesbenz #AClass in
partnership with @tidal #TIDALXMercedesBenz #Sponsored,” she
wrote in the caption.
In a recent interview, Birdman says Nicki Minaj has been focused
and working hard on her new album and that is the main reason why
she has been out of the public eye. His statement coincides with what
our people have been telling us over the past couple weeks. In that
said interview, the Cash Money Records head calls Nicki the “best
female rapper ever” in the history of rap. Quite a big statement but
most of her fans seem to agree and her next album will have a lot of
talking to do when it comes out.

Lil Wayne and Badman ends long time beef

After years of beef, it appears as though the drama between Lil Wayne and Birdman has finally come to a sudden end.

On Monday (March 26) morning, Baby posted a photo of himself and Weezy in a club. TMZ reported that the pic was taken at LIV on Sunday (March 25) night. This new shot comes two weeks after Birdman and Wayne were seen talking to one another at the same spot. The meet up that happened a couple weeks ago was during a 2 Chainz performance. But, this most recent get together was different because Wayne was actually hanging out with Birdman in his section.

“We’re told there was no talk of Wayne’s $51 million lawsuit against Birdman. Instead, they laughed and joked around, talked about the old times — and when it was all said and done … Birdman posted a pic with the caption “Me and my SON,” TMZ reads.

As for the two’s legal battle? The news outlet continues: “As for that legal issue, we’re told both have instructed their lawyers to hash out a plan that ends the legal feud, and releasing ‘Tha Carter V’ would be part of that agreement.”

After seeing the father and son’s IG picture, Young Money artist Drake was even excited for the reunion. Take a look at the pic and Drizzy’s reaction to it below.


Kodak Black Gets Green Light To Get GED Out Of Solitary

Kodak Black was given the green light by a judge to get GED after being released from solitary confinement.

On Monday, Kodak Black, real name Dieuson Octave, was released from solitary confinement after his attorney, Bradford Cohen, filed legal docs asking a judge to allow him access to a laptop and his tutor so that he can complete his GED which he started from before his arrest in January. The judge didn’t just approve the request, but also ordered his release from confinement.

This is a good sign for Kodak who is trying to continue his education. Now he will have access to a computer and his tutor will be able to visit him in jail for some lessons. Things are clearly now looking up for the Pompano Beach rapper who is facing mounting legal troubles ranging from a sexual misconduct case to probation violation and weed possession.

Last month, a judge dropped a gun and child endangerment charges against him after another judge denied him bond. Last week, Urban Islandz reported that Kodak Black was placed in solitary confinement for placing an unauthorized three-way call from jail. Then on Monday, he sent out a tweet telling his fans that he was let out of confinement. “Fresh out the bing… that boy @chrisbrown just dropped 10 racks on my books, that’s love,” he tweeted.


Cardi B Opens Up About Video Vixen Left Out #MeToo Movement

Cardi B says strippers and video vixens are being left behind in the #MeToo movement because no one believes them.

Cardi B is always outspoken about the struggles of strippers and vixens in the industry because that’s where she is coming from before becoming a household name as a rapper. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper says she has her own #MeToo experience but never really talk about them because no one will really believe vixens because of the hoe label placed on them.

The Bronx rapper gets candid in an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine where she touched on the movement that started last year that’s rocking Hollywood. “A lot of video vixens have spoke about this, and nobody gives a f**k,” she said. “When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, ‘You want to be on the cover of this magazine?’ Then they pull their d**ks out. I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, ‘So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter.’”

Of course, hip-hop wouldn’t be hip-hop without video vixens. These are the banging ladies you see shaking their booties in the clubs and in some of the most iconic music videos in rap history. There are some females who built their names from the ground up as a video vixen and some are actresses today and some have even become artists and reality show stars.

Even though vixens are important to the culture, they are not often given the same respects as models and actresses even though in a lot of cases they are faced with the same levels or even more sexual harassment in the industry. Cardi B is now saying she is on a mission to get some more respect for vixens because that’s where she is coming from.

Was 50 Cent Wishing Death Upon Rick Ross While Fighting For His Life?

50 Cent maybe hinting that he had something to do with Rick Ross
Rick Ross is currently in a Miami hospital fighting for his life and 50
Cent in on social media being petty. We all know that Fifty hates
Rozay’s guts but never knew it was this serious. But then again how
can we forget that Rozay’s baby mama is part of the reason why he
had to file for bankruptcy. Yes, he currently owes Lastonia Leviston
$5 million after losing a lawsuit she filed against him for posting an
explicit video of her getting down with another man.
Rick Ross was rushed to the hospital early Thursday morning after
someone at his Miami home found him having difficulty breathing.
There were some reports claiming that he was on life support, but his
protege Fat Trel denies those reports.
On Saturday, 50 Cent posted two photos on Instagram that speaks
for themselves. One of the pics is the infamous van Drago from the
classic film Rocky IV. Remember that famous scene where Drago
stands over Apollo Creed while he is dying and says, “If he dies, he
dies.” 50 Cent sure didn’t need a caption for that and the second
pic is that of Al Pacino from the cult classic movie Scarface .
Fifty is pretty much saying that if Rick Ross dies then he dies and
even some of his most hardened fans think that is taking it a bit too
far. “That is why you are struggling as a artist, because you are a f
up human bean (being),” one fan wrote in the comments while another
added, “You’re so wrong for this you have to be a sick person to
wish death on anyone even if you think they are your enemy man am
officially unfollowing 50 Cent.” Clearly, the “Get Rich Or Die Tryin”
doesn’t care about all of the criticisms he has been getting because
he later captioned the second pic, “Yeah I’m different.”

A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent) on

50 Cent and Rick Ross has a long history of beef with each other, but
mostly it’s been one-sided with the G-Unit rapper being the one to
entertain the feud the most on social media. The New York rap mogul
even sued Rozay in 2015 for sampling his classic hit “In Da Club” on
a diss track. That case was eventually settled out of court.

Yeah I’m different 🤫

Is Safaree Samuels Dating Juju?

Are Safaree Samuels and Juju dating?
The two Love and Hip Hop New York stars are fueling dating rumors
and some sources are saying if they are not already together, they
will be before the weekend is over. Nicki Minaj ex-boyfriend has been
in demand since his meat was leaked online a week ago. His people
told Mitego Sasa exclusively that his music sales and bookings

have gone through the roof and females have been turning out in
droves to his shows to get up close and personal with him.
But there is one female who is getting a lot of attention from Safaree
right now and that’s his Love and Hip Hop New York co-star Juju.
The pair was in Charlotte on Friday where Safaree had an event for
the CIAA weekend. The Jamaican born rapper posted a video of
himself and Juju in an Uber heading to Wild Wings to grab some food
with some friends. Sources confirmed that they did pull up at the
popular wing spot on East M.L.K. Blvd in Charlotte just after
“I called uber pool and juju was in here,” Safaree wrote. “This is
the 1st time I’m not listening to #hunnid & @iamjuju_ in here
hating!! Wild wings We on the wayyy! Straiitttt and don’t start y’all
mess pls!”
On a side note, right after Safaree photos leaked , newly single Juju
posted a photo of the two on her Instagram. She recently broke up
with Cam’ron and says she is single but not ready to mingle. Perhaps
she changed her mind after seeing SB’s massive patois meat
splattered all over the net.
Safaree also posted a video of himself signing his first boob where he
expressed how emotional he was afterward while reflecting on how
far he is coming since his breakup with Nicki Minaj. “I signed my 1st
boob today and dead azz got emotional after,” he wrote. “Signed a
bunch after .. necks hands and asses.. Im such a cancer life is
crazy. I’m grateful and still have alottttaaaaa of work to do… Thank
you to everyone supporting me! Straittttt.”
Safaree new single “Hunnid” is currently on iTunes and its fire.

Rihanna fans troll Chris Brown over birthday wish

Rihanna fans smell blood and Chris Brown is their target this time.
Breezy can’t get a break for even for doing something good. The “New
Flames” singer wished his ex-girlfriend Rihanna a happy 30th birthday
on Instagram yesterday and got hammered by her fans. Brown has since
disabled the comment section on the post because of the really nasty
comments that he was getting, but then the Navy take their trolling to
Some of Chris Brown fans pushed back at Rihanna Navy saying that he
should be forgiven for assaulting her several years ago. “Chris Brown
fans really want us to forgive his woman beating ass,” one fan wrote.
“Domestic abuse ISNT a mistake it’s a CONSCIOUS choice. Rihanna going
back to him didn’t excuse his behavior as most domestic abuse victims do
it continuously. He was cancelled after that & always will be.”
“Rihanna post the same photo Chris Brown post and STILL ain’t like the
man photo. I love bajan savagery,” another fan added. This is the
second time this month that Rihanna fans have attacked Chris Brown
for mentioning her on social media. Last week he tweeted that he would
like to go on tour with Rihanna, Beyonce, and Bruno Mars. The Navy and
Beyhive immediately went on the attack. Breezy has been getting a lot of
hate on social media when it comes to anything to do with his ex-
Sources told us that he is simply blocking out all the hate and noise and
do him. “He just blocks out all the unnecessary noise and continues to do
him so if he wants to wish RiRi a happy birthday then nothing wrong
with that,” sources said. “There are always these trolls on social media
who say the most and a lot of them are not even fans, they are just
social media trolls.”

DJ Khaled Gets Roasted On Twitter For Judging Dunks At NBA All-Star Weekend

DJ Khaled is currently getting roasted on Twitter for unfairly judging a dunk.

DJ Khaled was one of the guest judges at last night’s All-Star Weekend’s Verizon Slam Dunk contest and it ended badly for him because he has been getting hammered on Twitter. The rapper/producer was one of five judges on the panel, the other four are Mark Wahlberg, WNBA star Lisa Leslie, Chris Rock, and NBA legend Julius “Dr. J” Erving. While Larry Nance Jr., Victor Oladipo, Donovan Mitchell, and Dennis Smith Jr. all took part in the contest.

Dennis Smith Jr. put on a show for the fans and even the judges were so impressed that they all gave him a perfect score. Larry Nance Jr. also throws down an impressive double tap on the backboard to earn himself a perfect score. In the end, it was Michell who took home the trophy.

DJ Khaled was a bit harsh with some of the scores leading some viewers to air out their grouses on Twitter. One user even uploaded a video of Khaled from last year’s All Star game where he went on the court to show off his skills and ended up embarrassing himself.

“DJ Khaled is the worst judge. Don’t ever have him judge a dunk contest again. A 9? Really,” Gary vent while another user on Twitter added, “This was the dude judging the Dunk Contest. NBA gotta fire whoever thought having DJ Khaled judge the dunk contest would be a good idea.”


Kanye West Is Finally Back On Instagram Fans React

Kanye West suddenly popped up back on Instagram and fans are reacting.

On Valentine’s Day, Kanye surprised everyone when he made a post on his official Instagram account honoring his wife Kim Kardashian. He posted a picture of a card he got for her that reads “Happy Valentine’s Day babe.” Since then, Ye posted a series of posts of some famous couples including former President Barrack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, Diddy and Jennifer Lopez, Tupac and Aaliyah and more.

Kim Kardashian West posted a Valentine’s message for her husband as well. “I love you to infinity. Happy Valentine’s Day!!!” she wrote.

It’s been almost year since Kanye West deactivated his Instagram account. He joined the social media platform in 2016 and began posting stuff occasionally before deactivating his account in May last year. Despite being not very active, he has over 2.6 million followers and that number starts growing quickly since his return.

Seems his fans are super happy that the G.O.O.D. rapper has returned to social media. “The universe has answered our prayers the god is back and now we can get that new album, welcome back Ye,” one fan commented. It’s unclear if his return is a sign that he is about to drop new music.

Is Lil Wayne Executive Producing Nicki Minaj Fourth Album

Nicki Minaj is locked down working on her new album and we’re told that Lil Wayne is executive producing the project.

Speculations have been ripe in recent weeks about Nicki Minaj’s whereabouts and her absence from her once vibrant social media pages. Some of her critics even went as far as to suggest that she is MIA because she is recovering from another “plastic surgery.” The truth is, the Trinidadian rapper has been quietly working overtime on her next body of work and she has some help from Lil Wayne who we’re told is executive producing the project.

“C’mon we tune out all the unnecessary noise and focusing on the things that matter like this next Nicki album for the fans,” sources close to the Young Money rapper confirmed with Urban Islandz. “She working hard on the tape, she know the fans have been waiting a while for this but she wants to get this perfect. This will be a landmark album. We have Weezy and the whole team up in the studio and everyone is laser-focused and working over time.”

Nicki Minaj has been working on her fourth album since the beginning of last year. In March last year, she released three new singles “Regret In Your Tears,” “No Frauds” with Lil Wayne and Drake, and “Change It” with Weezy. Those three tracks were supposed to be on her new album but we’re told that she scrap that idea after the initial buzz around them quickly diminished.

“Social media is too much of a distraction right now so the aim is to go on a total blackout until the album is ready,” sources added. “So far we are happy with the way things are progressing and everyone is committed to the cause. We are not doing this for the haters, we doing it for the fans, the fans is all that matters.”

Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne reconnected at the top of 2017 following her split with Meek Mill. She and Drake also repaired their friendship that was damaged from his beef with her ex-boyfriend Meek Mill. There were some chatters that she had a role to play in the beef and Drizzy was upset about it.

We asked if Drake is involved in the album production or will be a guest feature but we didn’t get an answer for that.

DJ Khaled Brother-In-Law Murdered At A Bronx Super Bowl Party

DJ Khaled is mourning the death of his brother-in-law who was
murdered at a Super Bowl party in Brooklyn.
Jonathan Tuck, who is the brother of DJ Khaled’s fiance Nicole Tuck,
was shot and killed while watching the Super Bowl at an apartment
in the Bronx, TMZ reported. Sources say the 25-year-old got into an
argument and was shot in the apartment located on Washington Ave.
near E. 185th St. He was rushed to the St. Barnabas Hospital close
by where he was pronounced dead.
The NY Daily News reported that Tuck was at the apartment to buy
marijuana but other sources say he was just there to watch the
Super Bowl. One of his close friends, Brandon Davis, says he was a
good guy and was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. “He’s a
good guy,” Davis said. “He was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
There was no reason for him to be there.”
At the time of the shooting, DJ Khaled was watching the Super Bowl
live in Minneapolis, while his wife Nicole Tuck and her mother rushed
to the Bronx after getting news of the shooting. Sources say she is
devastated and Khaled is giving her some emotional support. So far
there is no arrest in the shooting, but law enforcement officials are
questioning a 34-year-old male who was reportedly on the scene.
DJ Khaled performed at the Grammys last week with Rihanna and
Bryson Tiller. The trio performed their No. 1 single “Wild Thoughts”
in a well received set. The rapper/producer is currently working on
his next album, due sometime this year.
Let’s send our prayers to Khaled and his family in the midst of this


JAY-Z showed Meek Mill some support at his
“4:44” concert in Philadelphia on Friday night.
Hov has been a staunched critic of the justice
system since the MMG rapper was sentenced
to 2-4 years in prison for probation violation.
The Roc Nation boss supported the
#FreeMeekMill movement during the Philly leg
of his “4:44 Tour” by playing the rapper’s hit
single “Dreams & Nightmares” during his set.
He leads the crowd on a “Free Meek Mill”
chant. The rap legend also penned an op-ed in
the New York Times last month throwing his
support behind Meek, while calling out the
justice system for its mass incarceration of
young black men.
Some Philadelphia 76ers players including Joel
Embiid and Ben Simmons were at the concert
showing their support for Meek Mill. The due

MILL.” The fans on Meek’s home turf poured
in their numbers to fill up the arena for a sold-
out crowd. JAY-Z also showed his support to
Colin Kaepernick by wearing his jersey at the
sold-out show. R&B singer Trey Songz and
rapper Yo Gotti were also showed up to show
his support and was also spotted at the after
“That sh*t [Kaepernick’s protest] is not about
inanimate objects,” Hov said. “It’s about
people dying. It’s about young people leaving
their house and never coming back home. And
it’s not a black and white issue. It’s a human
issue. Everybody should be fighting that.”
Meek Mill, real name Robert Williams, is
currently awaiting the outcome of his
emergency bail application. The Pennsylvania
Superior Court handed down a ruling last
month directing Judge Genece Brinkley to
make a ruling on the rapper’s bail . She is the
same judge who handed down the unjust
sentencing after she claimed that the rapper
broke his probation by getting arrested earlier
this year for breaking up a fight and popping
wheelies in the streets of New York.

Lil Wayne said that his new album Dedication 6

is coming very soon.

The Young Money rapper has been going through

some struggles with his label Cash Money and

former mentor and friend Birdman for the past

two years and that has significantly affected how

much new music he is able to put out. On

Thanksgiving Day, November 23, Lil Wayne wrote

a heartfelt thank you note to his fans while also

announcing that D6 coming sooner than later.

“Happy Thanksgiving,” the New Orleans rapper

wrote. “I’m so thankful for all my fans for

standing by me while I’m enduring this fight with

this label. I ain’t shit without y’all! D6 is coming

y’all way soon! Thank You.” Earlier this month,

his manager Cortez Bryant revealed that

Dedication 6 would arrive sometime in November.

The month is pretty much over but the project is

not forthcoming.

Wayne Over Royalties For “Carter 3”

Lil Wayne has been working on the mixtape since

last year when he announced that it would be a

collaboration between himself and DJ Drama.

There is no concrete word on what’s holding up

the project but sources are saying his legal

battle with Cash Money has a part to play on

how he releases new music. Wayne is suing

Birdman and Cash Money Records for $51 million

and also want a judge to release him from his

contract with the label.


Nicki Minaj Backs Out Testifying In Brother’s Rape Case

Nicki Minaj will not be testifying in her brother’s highly publicized

rape case and for good reasons.

The hip hop superstar’s older brother Jelani Maraj is currently on

trial for allegedly raping an 11-year-old girl. Last week, Page Six

reported that Nicki Minaj will be a star witness in the high profile trial

that could send her brother to prison for life. The 11-year-old victim

is his stepdaughter and she told authorities that Maraj had sex with

her up to four times per week. The rapper’s brother legal team also

told reporters that she will take the stand in his defense.

Despite the reports of Nicki Minaj testimony in the trial, sources told

Dapstream News  that she is fully supporting her brother, but will

not be taking the stand. “The talks of her [Nicki Minaj] testifying are

just not true,” sources told us. “She is supporting her brother by

paying his legal fees and giving him moral support, but she will not

be testifying.” We’re told that Nicki Minaj team strongly advised her

against testifying telling her that he could be damaging for her

brand. “It’s a difficult decision for her because this is her brother

and she loves her family, but this is just too much of a risk for her

brand,” sources around the Trinidadian rapper told us.

Jelani Maraj’s rape trial is currently underway in a long island court

and Nicki will not be going to court. Jelani’s wife, Jacqueline

Robinson, told Nicki Minaj that she could make the case go away for

$25 million. Of course, the rapper did not bite so the case now goes

to trial. The Assistant District Attorney Emma Slane told jurors in

court that the little girl’s younger brother, who was 8 years old at the

time, was the first person to reveal the sexual abuse to child services

who then called the cops.

Investigators got a search warrant and went to the house where they

recovered a pajama stained with her stepdad’s semen. The boy also

testified in the trial that his stepfather spanks him for walking in on

him having sex with his older sister in a spare bedroom. The defense

attorney says this is all a ply by their mother, Jacqueline Robinson,

to get money from Nicki Minaj, whom she has been obsessed with

from day one.

Meek Mill Says He Dumped Nicki Minaj Takes More Shots On IG

Meek Mill says that he was the one who broke up with Nicki Minaj

and not the other way around.

The first real clear hint that we got from Meek that he dumped Nicki

Minaj was when he released his single “1942 Flows.” The Young

Money rapper announced on Twitter in January this year that she is a

single woman again. At first, everyone thought that she was the one

who pulled the plug on the relationship but now we are learning that

Meek has been quietly saying that he was the one who dumped her.

“He was the one who broke up with her and we been always known

that from the beginning,” sources said. “Celebrities relationships are

usually never really private but that doesn’t mean someone will want

to come out and spill all the tea to score some points. These two

were dating and they broke up that happens all the time and I doubt it

really matters who broke up with who, the relationship is done it’s

over ni**as have moved on and go about their business.”

Meek is also making it clear to folks inside his circle that he is done

with her for good and has no interest in evening speaking to her. “No

am pretty sure there is no rekindling going down, homeboy said it out

his mouth and what they broke up over is a huge deal breaker,”

sources revealed. On his single “1942 Flows” Meek Mill most famous

line is, “Cut her off, act like she’s dead and it’s killing her / New

dawn, Hermes seats, I left the ceiling up / Just to get to kill ’em



Since their bitter break up eight months ago, Meek Mill and Nicki

Minaj have not spoken to each other and they often take shots at

each other on social media. In July, the “Wins and Loses” rapper fired

off a diss on Instagram calling out Nicki for having fake everything

and basically saying that she made him sick when she takes off


Cardi B Says Offset Still Haven’t Proposed

Cardi B shot down engagement rumors last night saying that her

boyfriend Offset still hasn’t proposed to her.

Rumors of their engagement have been floating around for the past

few weeks and only grew more intense last weekend. While on the

red carpet at Sunday night’s MTV VMAs, Charlamagne Tha God asked

her about the rumors and she immediately let it known that there is

no ring on her finger. “Do ya see a ring on my ring finger?” she

jokingly sang. She then held up her left ring finger to show the world

that there is no ring on it. “Boy, is you gon’ marry me?” she added.

Cardi B also hinted that she does want to marry Offset somebody,

but only when he is ready. So the big question now is she ready to

get married to him? I’m a woman and every woman, I think, wants to

get married and wants to have children,” she said. “It’s never too

early to get married now. You know, if you want to propose to me,

you can.” Charlamage then asked if that is not putting too much

pressure on Offset and she responded, “I put it down ain’t no

pressure, baby!”

Last week, Cardi B responded to an alleged diss from Nicki Minaj on

London On Da Track’s new single “No Flag” featuring 21 Savage and

Offset. “I don’t bother with these hoes, Don’t let these hoes BOTHER

Me, she tweeted. Nicki also said that she was not dissing the “Bodak

Yellow” rapper on her fiery verse. She also added that her verse was

written months ago presumably long before Cardi’s blow up in hip

hop. Their rumored beef has been going on for months now and both

have them have hinted that they are not beefing with each other. The

fans think otherwise.
