Dripping with Flair

Weekly Buzz

Former pro wrestler Ric Flair got married at 68 last week, and befitting a wedding with guests like Dennis Rodman, he walked up to the altar in a white suit while Offset’s Ric Flair Drip played in the background.

50 Cent (along with the rest of G-Unit) complained about the lack of originality in the Rap game with Snoop, the irony was lost on them about complaining about originality while 50 was wearing the exact same shirt in a different color as the guy next to him was wearing. It looks like both their moms went to the same sale at Marshall’s and then they showed up on the first day of school accidentally matching. The plus side was Snoop’s amazing impression of Mumble Rap.

— Mac Miller

Mac Miller died of a drug overdose in his home this week, he and I were the same age and I still remember when he released his first mixtape K.I.D.S. our senior year of high school. He was an artist constantly trying to improve his craft, maturing from the frat rap on his early albums to actually singing on his latest albums with each one being better than the last. It is a shame that we will never see what he could have become.

Queen of Sore Losers

Weekly Buzz

Nicki Minaj has been losing her mind over losing the #1 album spot to Travis Scott for the past 2 weeks. She has been going on rants on Twitter, blaming everyone from Travis to her own Label. She says that Travis has been cheating to boost his sales by juicing his numbers. Which is an interesting accusation from someone who decided to show the maximum amount of her breasts possible on the album cover and coincidentally go crazy the same week her album came out. Near the end of her rant she posted the classic "I'm not mad I can't believe people thought I was really mad I was being sarcastic" tweet. Then in a really weird twist compared herself trying to get streaming numbers to count on Billboard to Harriet Tubman freeing slaves.

Dave and Busted

Weekly Buzz

Young Thug released an album this week to coincide with his birthday, but unfortunately ended up getting arrested at his own birthday party at Dave and Busters. He rented out an entire DnB restaurant for his birthday party and somehow bumped into a police car outside which led to his car being searched and guns being found. That's got to be as poorly as a birthday party at Dave and Busters has ever ended, especially if the whole place was rented out.

Late Night Short Circuit

Weekly Buzz

Kanye went on Jimmy Kimmel's show doing his best impersonation of a human, but it was still a poor job. The interview is extremely awkward, it reminded me of when you talk to someone who is really weird at a party and you ask if they are on drugs and they are sober. Somehow them being sober is much more disturbing than if they listen off a bunch of drugs they were on to explain their weird behavior and interactions. Kanye also stood up James Corden who tried to book him 3 times for Carpool Karaoke but Kanye just kept cancelling at the last minute and cost the show $45k. I didn't really need this story to know that Kanye has a one star Uber rating, I doubt he has ever arrived for a ride on time in his life. 

Speaking of Late night shows, here is the Mean Tweets clip for Rappers that came out this week (and yes it is a life goal of mine to have my tweet featured on here).

Confessions

Weekly Buzz

I wish that musicians would stop being scumbags so I could write about fun stuff but instead here I am with another week focused on R. Kelly, best known for believing he can fly past the criminal justice system and create a sex cult with underage girls. He just released a 19 minute song addressing the issue called "I Admit It". This is not a joke I'm making, he released a song that has only ever been matched with OJ's book If I Did It in terms of narcissism so huge that you can't stand people not knowing you did the crime you walked free from. Set aside the fact that I would rather get braces again than listen to a 19 minute R. Kelly song, this thing is extremely insane. In “I Admit,” R. Kelly asks, “What’s the definition of a cult?/What’s the definition of a sex slave?/Go to the dictionary, look it up/Let me know I’ll be here waiting.” look it up. Did you get back from dictionary.com fast enough to know that grooming a 14 year old girl to be your sex "pet" as a 51 year old fits nicely with that definition? He also says inin the song: "They say I’m abusing these women/What the fuck, that’s some absurd shit/They brainwashed?/Really?/Kidnapped?/Really?/Can’t eat?/Really?/Real talk, that shit sound silly" 

To that I say REALLY

Rolling Dirty

Weekly Buzz

Just ten days after the birth of his daughter Offset was arrested after allegedly making an illegal lane change on the highway. Officers found less than an ounce of weed and a weapon in the car, which may cause some legal trouble for the ex-felon. He should be able to avoid some charges with some good lawyers which he can probably spend some of the over 100k in cash that was found in his car by police. 

Rapper 6ix9ine was robbed, pistol whipped, and kidnapped and gave an interview this week about the experience. He seems to believe that someone in his inner circle set him up to be robbed of the over 800k in jewelry he was wearing. He said he thought that he was going to be murdered so he gave into the kidnappers demands and is now re-evaluating the people he keeps around him and how he is living his life. He mentioned following 21 Savage's example, who has given up jewelry and has been donating hundreds of thousands to causes close to his heart.

WhoPac

Weekly Buzz

New information has come out about who killed Tupac after the Mike Tyson fight at the MGM in 1996. Keef D has confessed on camera to being a passenger in the car and that his nephew Orlando Anderson was the shooter, he died two years later in a shootout in a parking garage over a dispute about money. He had motive because Tupac had allegedly assaulted him two hours prior. There are conflicting reports however, including the linked article (shown below) I was shown to click on next after I read the details of this confession to post here.

2018-07-09 06-46-35_Tupac murder_ Why Orlando Anderson was never charged over Vegas shooting _ Daily.png

Pretty impossible to tell which is more likely, the police were incompetent in gaining confessions from people who were bragging about the crime to their friends and getting them to turn on each other, or Tupac was posting selfies in 2011 to YouTube as this other article claims and faked his own death to avoid a life of money, respect, and success.

Speaking of criminal cases that feel like they never end, Chris Brown was arrested after a show in Florida for previously having assaulted a photographer. He posted what is most definitely a fair and meaningful bail for a serial assaulter who is insanely rich of $2,000.

On another track he goes further, “Yesterday morning was crazy, I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe / That shit is in stone, sealed and signed / She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine / Sandy used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time/ Shit, we only met two times, two times! / And both times were nothing like the new times/ Now it’s rough times/ I’m out here on frontlines, trying to make sure that I see him sometimes/ It’s breaking my spirit/ Single father, I hate when I hear it / I used to challenge my parents on every album / Now I’m embarrassed to tell ’em I ended up as a co-parent / Always promised the family unit / I wanted it to be different because I been through it, but this is the harsh truth now.”

Karma

Weekly Buzz

I've written several times on here about rapper XXXTentacion and his history of assaulting, abusing, and threatening women. He mercilessly beat his pregnant girlfriend, threatening to kill her, their unborn child, and her family. Last week he was killed in a robbery while he was driving. His death has lead to his music breaking streaming records on Spotify. Meanwhile his ex has been trying to raise money for reconstructive eye surgery as he had fractured her cheek bone in several spots and she is facing potentially permanent blindness in that eye. His legacy and his end was one of violence, his music an afterthought.

Prince + King Push

Weekly Buzz

It looks like I was right, the beef between Drake and Pusha T is over, with no response back from Drake after Pusha released a scathing track accusing him of neglecting a secret child he had with a Pornstar. I think this is probably because Drake is a Raptors fan so he is used on getting dunked on and taking an "L" in public, then trying to befriend the guy who clowned him afterwards. Credit has been given to Drake's mentor J. Prince, CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records, for talking him out of retaliating and squashing the conflict. Drake allegedly had a song ready to "end" Pusha T and Kanye's careers, that seems doubtful because Kanye has been trying really hard lately to end his own career and has been unsuccessful.

So Ye

Weekly Buzz

Of course Kanye releases an album whose cover reads "I hate being Bi-Polar its awesome", one week after I am writing about Mental Health Awareness in music. Rather than expound on that, I'll just update you all on the feud between Pusha T and Drake which has escalated to say the least. Pusha T release a song accusing Drake of neglecting his child that he allegedly had with a Pornstar.  He also released an old photo of Drake that has him wearing blackface, which caused Drake to have to defend the photo and provide context and an apology. Pretty much everyone has been getting dragged into it with rumors that A$AP Rocky told Pusha T about it because A$AP used to date her. A$AP Rocky was pretty emphatic in his denial with the only part I can quote here being "RIDIN HARRY POTTER STICK 2 FIND DA SNITCH". Everyone is waiting to see what Drake does in response, most likely he will release a less venomous song that gets higher on the charts and then he will go on tour.

Mental Health Awareness Month

Weekly Buzz

I normally try to avoid writing about rap beef's that are clearly publicity stunts, but Drake has released to diss songs aimed at and in direct response to Pusha T's jabs at him on his new album. In addition to multiple songs sniping at each other, Drake also claimed he wanted compensation for helping boost awareness for Pusha's new album including sending him an invoice on Instagram for $100k “For professional services rendered re: promotional assistance and career reviving.”

Brockhampton has kicked out a member of their group this week after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced about him. The group issued a statement and has distanced themselves from him and appears to have sided with his accusers rather than siding with him out of loyalty and trying to discredit the accusers which seams to be more the norm. This is in stark contrast to R. Kelly who this week was seen in a video making a toast and referencing the social media movement to get him kicked out of the music industry for creating a sex cult full of underage girls that he has manipulated and abused. In the new video he says "They should have did this shit 30 years ago", he also says that with people still supporting him that he isn't going anywhere. Unfortunately, both those things are true, until people do something to take action against these disgusting men in power they will remain there.

Last week rapper Lil Xan keyed his own car, then made a YouTube video explaining that he is mentally ill and wasn't able to stop himself from destroying his own property. He said he feels like a slave to his management who won't let him drive his own car or use it. He says in the video that he knows that people will make fun of him for doing this but he doesn't care because it is his mental illness forcing him to act out in this way about his anger. 

Bryson Tiller opened up about his battle with depression as well, after his wildly successful debut album Trapsoul in 2015 he started to suffer from depression. He accredits it to not being able to handle the negative criticism he faced online. He says that it caused his second album to suffer in both sales and quality because he was in a "dark place... it hindered me from everything you know, my creative process, everything". He says he has been feeling better and hasn't been depressed since 2017 and is looking forward to working on his next album.

Mental Health Awareness Month

Weekly Buzz

1-800-273-8255 is the number for the suicide prevention hotline, that logic chose to use as the title of his song to help raise awareness for mental health resources. His performance at the Grammy's tripled calls to the hotline. In the Netflix series Rapture, the rapper is featured and talks about the challenges he has had with anxiety and stretching himself too thin. I highly recommend watching it, although it heavily features his wife who he has since filed for divorce from which makes it tough to watch.
