This is another step past Fat Joe and Jay Z’s longstanding beef, which was publicly put to rest when Jigga appeared on the “All the Way Up” remix last year. The Terror Squad rapper signed a management deal with Roc Nation, according to a press release. The New York rapper was posted up on his Instagram wearing the signature Roc Nation paper plane hat at the end of last year, but now his partnership with the house that Hov built is official. Fat Joe has reason to celebrate even before his   Plata o Plomo album with Remy Ma comes out next month. Mobbed the fuck up. Fat Joe and Remy Ma’s   Plata o Plomo   album is due out February 10 and the duo is also nominated for two Grammys for “All the Way Up.” The winners will be announced two days after the LP drops.

Upon being arrested this week, Taxstone was struck with a federal weapons possession charge. Given that Taxstone’s arrest took place nearly eight months after the backstage shooting, Fox 5 News reporter Lisa Evers recently offered some insight into what could have been behind the delay. Info is directly from the federal complaint which was unveiled in court today. “So, it seems like they either picked somebody up who wanted to bargain with them or get a reduced charge or something like that.”

According to #lisaevers .. During an appearance in court yesterday (January 17), the Tax Season   host’s bail was set at $500,000 with a handful of stipulations, including house arrest. He has not been charged with murder. DNAinfo reports that Taxstone, real name Daryl Campbell, was granted bail after Assistant District Attorney Hagan Scotten fought hard against his release. “He had a gun in his hand and he murdered someone,” Scotten said in court while fighting against Taxstone being released on bail. According to The Associated Press, defense attorney Kenneth Montgomery dismissed Scotten’s remarks and referred to Taxstone as a “smart, well-balanced person” and claimed that his client did not shoot and kill McPhatter. In regards to his bail, he was required to put up at least $350,000 in cash or property. “The other thing that he [Assistant District Attorney] said was in the past two months somebody started to talk,” Evers said in a video clip uploaded by DJ Akademiks. Popular podcaster   Taxstone   has posted bail and is on house arrest   following his arrest on Monday (January 16), according to Billboard. most likely someone was jammed up and singing like a bird to the Feds in the last 2 months in the #taxstone #troyave incident

Here is the breakdown of what the FEDS are claiming in court happened that night with #taxstone and #troyave … note … these are only allegations …but this is the narrative they have which is why they charged him with two counts of gun possession. Via @lisaevers
A video posted by DJ Akademiks (@akadmiks) on Jan 17, 2017 at 3:53pm PST Scotten expressed his belief that Taxstone let off the shot that ultimately killed Ronald “Banga” McPhatter   during a concert shooting at Irving Plaza   last May. Earlier in the week, it was reported that Taxstone’s DNA was believed to be found on “the trigger, hand grip and magazine” of the handgun police retrieved after the Irving Plaza shooting.

What Soulja Boy’s outburst means for the relationship between the two men is unclear. “These niggaz taking too long. It’s really only been a few weeks since Soulja Boy’s boxing bout with Chris Brown got confirmed, but it feels like it’s been a lot longer. Soulja Boy’s final tweet on the matter said that he’d be talking about the fight and other matters on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night talkshow. Soulja Boy is planning the fight?? this will go down in history!! Even if the fight never goes down, at least we’ll always have this UFC simulation… The rapper also wrote “Y’all know what I’m throwing the fight,” though by the sounds of it he means “throwing” like you’d throw a party — rather than what “throwing a fight” actually means when it comes to boxing. Hit me for tickets, they on sale now.”
The fight had originally been slated to be promoted by Mayweather Promotions. Fuck this shit, you need tickets, hit me, I’m running the show,” Soulja wrote in a series of now-deleted tweets. pic.twitter.com/aBMrRz4n7F

In the other deleted tweets, Soulja Boy claimed that the fight would go down in March, and that he would be the one renting the venue and selling the tickets: “This will be a Soulja Boy promotion. There has been confusion over who was really in charge of the bout since the earliest stages of its organization. Soulja Boy is certainly feeling the time drag, and took to Twitter on Tuesday (January 17) to call out those behind the fight for dragging their heels. For now, there doesn’t appear to be any Soulja Boy appearance scheduled. 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather wanted to   put on the show in Los Angeles or Las Vegas, while The Game’s manager Wack 100 said   that he was the one actually running things and that it would go down in Dubai. Floyd Mayweather was also coaching Soulja Boy for match.

“I fuck with him, I fuck with the Trump jersey,” the performer continued, in a ruse to get the fan to pass the jersey forward…
But as soon as Waka Flocka got his hands on the gear, down came his pants. Here's what Flocka thought about it.. That’s a Trump jersey right? Athens, GA – President-elect Donald Trump has struggled to find artists to play at his Inauguration Ceremony on Friday, but Waka Flocka has taken the level of disrespect to a whole new stratosphere. At first Waka seemed pretty chill about the political fashion statement, saying: “Hold that shit up bruh. Luckily, the footage was captured in all its graphic detail:
A fan showed @WakaFlocka a trump jersey while he was performing. Waka Flocka literally wiped his bare ass with a jersey bearing the name of the guy who’s going to be president in two days. If that doesn’t sum up the relationship between Donald Trump and the Hip Hop company then we’re not sure what does. When performing in Georgia on Monday night, the 30-year-old rapper noticed a fan holding up a jersey that said “Trump” on it. The crowd loved the act of rebellion, fist-pumping and cheering Waka Flocka for his unique protest.

The alleged upcoming fight between Brown and Soulja Boy has drawn criticism from various personalities, including Puff Daddy who claimed the drama was “killing the culture” with its “buffoonery and coonery.” Elliott mentioned the boxing matches were better than more deadly forms of violence. Tyson so graciously made a small cameo in his own video near the end. “Why not? Los Angeles, CA – As if the Soulja Boy and Chris Brown saga couldn’t get any more ridiculous. Mike is going to teach him how to knock his ass out. “I mentioned to him it would be fun to mess around in the studio and do some songs,” he said. Speaking with the record’s producer Damon Elliott, fans, haters and general onlookers alike can expect more to come. I’m saying this for the record. I sold 150 million albums and got a Grammy — and been nominated seven times. That’s manly to me.”
Though Soulja recruited Floyd Mayweather to be his trainer, Elliott already had an idea of how the fight would play out. Basically, I went back home, flew back to Vegas a couple of days later, got in the studio with him and we dropped the ‘If You Show Up’ joint.”
From Elliott’s perspective, it’s all fun and in the spirit of Hip Hop for Tyson. Dropping heat. “He’s always had a keen ear for music and he’s very educated in that world.”
According to Elliott, “If You Show Up” wasn’t even the first record they recorded together. I think there’s nothing wrong with two grown men putting gloves on, going in the ring and settling whatever it is. Wait and see what this is about…

Elliott says his friendship with Tyson goes back to their earlier teens and Kid Dynamite has always been into music. You had dance battles, rap battles and boxing goes back to the medieval days. “It’s not to hurt anybody’s feelings or cause chaos,” he said. If someone had a problem, you’d enter the ring and handle situations there. I’m saying it out of my mouth. We got back to the house and he mentioned in passing that Chris Brown wanted to be trained by him. “If he choreographs his fight right and puts together that combination right, he’s going to be a problem. Breezy’s trainer for the upcoming Dubai boxing match, Iron Mike Tyson himself, dropped his Soulja diss track “If You Show Up” Monday (January 17) and apparently, it’s only the beginning. “Everybody knows Mike, if he wants to get it popping, he’ll get it popping. I started dropping some beats and he started dropping some lyrics. “Damn right, we’re going to put some more singles out there and put a compilation together,” Elliott tells HipHopDX during a phone call. “Mike has watched me produce all types of artists from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony to Destiny’s Child,” he recalls. But, this is one of those records that is fun and I’m very proud of the way he rhymed and comes off. I’m like let’s do more.”

In studio. “Chris is a dancer who has wind, stamina and moves,” he said. The accompanying music video showcased lip syncing models as they partook in activities ranging from working out to beating up a beanie-wearing Deandre Way doppelganger. Yes, that means an album. “I think killing people isn’t a good representation of Hip Hop. That’s the old school mentality. In a recent interview with HipHopDX, he too picked Brown to be the last man standing, stating “when it comes to the real deal, throwing hands and knowing what you’re doing, I’m with Chris Brown cause I personally know that Chris Brown can really fight.”
When Elliott isn’t producing for the boxer-ternt-rapper, the Grammy Award-winning producer is working on the music for an upcoming Ronda Rousey documentary titled Through My Father’s Eyes, set to be released this spring. Mike is coming for real and I’m happy about it.”
Our CEO @damonelliott In The Studio With Mike Tyson. And, that’s going to be it.”
Celebrated professional boxer Adrien Broner also went on record with similar predictions. “I prefer boxing matches over people shooting each other,” he said. We did a lot of music together. Then, I was like we should go back in the studio and make a song just for fun. I had no idea he was fighting Soulja Boy. “He was like yeah, why not?

Tampa, FL – Today, January 17, would be an ideal time for Plies to hop on an “Ain’t Worried About Nothin’” freestyle because he’s obviously not pressed about being busted for driving under the influence. But being the avid and shrewd social media user he is, Plies (real name Algernod Lanier Washington) obviously knew the questions and conversation would be a brewing, so he took to Instagram to let the people know he was A-OK. (After being released on $500 bond, that is.)
“I Need A Tan Bih……,” he wrote for the caption of a photo of himself holding a glass full of a brownish glowing liquid, followed by a gaggle of laughing emojis and the hashtags “#Plies #RacksUpToMyEar #PurpleHeart? #RichNiggaShit #RanOffInDaPlugTwice #RitzCarlton.”
Plies’ last studio album arrived all the way back in 2010 in the form of Goon Affiliated, but that hasn’t stopped his hustle. The 40-year-old veteran Florida street poet was arrested earlier this morning and booked into the Tampa’s Hillsborough County Jail and with the alleged DUI, TMZ reports. As of press time, he has 4.8 million followers on Instagram to go with another 760,000 on Twitter.

This won’t be the first time we’ve seen Blake practice his acting chops on screen. The script will be written by Barnes under   Fox, while   Griffin and Kalil are assisting in production through their Mortal Media producing company. The 1992 film White Men Can’t Jump is getting a reboot courtesy of Black-ish creator Kenya Barnes, which is slated to feature NBA star Blake Griffin and   Carolina Panthers’ player   Ryan Kalil, Variety reports. He played alongside Chris Brown and Drake during that hilarious ESPY skit back in 2014 and he’s also starred in quite a few commercials including his popular Space Jam, Jordan Brand commercial. The original White Men Can’t Jump starred Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes as streetball   hustlers who start out as rivals over Harrelson’s ability to dunk and end up coming together.

The song, that appeared on LilWayneYMHQ, is supposedly called “Life of Mr. A Sneak Peek Of Lil Wayne's "Life Of Mr. Weezy’s camp reportedly did an internal investigation to try to find out who let the music leak and they made the notorious pharmaceutical exec promise he wouldn’t share any more of the tracks.

This comes after Martin Shkreli leaked some of   Tha Carter V on Periscope, claiming he obtained a copy of the legendary LP. The reason the world does not have Tha Carter V,   of course, is because Lil Wayne and Birdman are locked in an ongoing legal battle that started back in 2014 when, months after the project was supposed to come out, Tunechi demanded off the label. He then filed a $51 million lawsuit against his father figure and Cash Money. Birdman recently said on Beats 1 that fans will hear the LP, but Lil Wayne said not so fast. Lil Wayne fans are slowly getting to hear   Tha Carter V piece by piece and a new snippet of the much-anticipated project popped up on Instagram today (January 17).

It marks the first project to incorporate Bluetooth into the packaging, allowing it to be converted into a functional DJ set-up, as well as the first ever puzzle vinyl set, something that took over three years to produce.

I wouldn’t step to him, but who’s to say Steve Harvey can’t?”
He went on to address T.I.’s comments about people taking meetings with the President-elect and sees outspoken artists like T.I. We should be outside the White House gates protesting damn near every day (Laughs). “It’s like when [President Richard] Nixon had James Brown. Any person who is black or a person of color, he [Trump] is going to use it like the person is on his side and that’s not necessarily so. “Steve Harvey is an adult,” he says. However, he believes it’s unrealistic to think people are going to stay out of what goes on behind the White House doors. is an adult. People are human beings. “I’m sure Steve Harvey is looking at him eye to eye and cheek to cheek, not on his knees. We are all different.”
While countless readers throw in their own two cents on Trump, T.I., Harvey and everything in between, the Fear of a Black Planet creator is adamant about one thing. He’s stepping to him as a man, and expects him to be accountable and see what he’s doing for black folks. “T.I. They can take it. “Comments on social media is like going back to the grade school. Not every bark has a bite, but we at least need people that bark. a vital component to the future of this country and continuing a dialogue. “We can’t read none of these comments online,” he says. Los Angeles, CA – In light of T.I.’s Instagram rant about celebrities like Kanye West and Steve Harvey taking private meetings with President-elect Donald Trump, Public Enemy mastermind Chuck D caught wind of the situation and chimed in, likening   Trump’s intentions to just another publicity stunt. How we read the media has to be the answer.”
While it’s unclear what exactly Harvey and Trump discussed during their talk, having a few people on the inside could prove to be beneficial in the long run,   and Chuck doesn’t condemn Harvey for taking the meeting. Everybody can’t have the same role. Protests on this inauguration is very admirable from the artist community, especially black folk, but to think we going to stay out of that conversation on what goes on in the White House is naive. At the end of the day, they’re on the same team—just a different position. It’s like 7th grade all over again. “Of course it’s a publicity stunt,” Chuck D tells HipHopDX. Any adult over 18 shouldn’t pay the   commentary section any mind. We   need people that can bark, especially in the rap community. “The whole world should meet up with him [Trump] to keep this dude from going solo psycho on the planet,” Chuck D tells DX. Expect   a spitball and a milk cartoon, too.”
 
 
 

Big Boi’s other outings, 2010’s   Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty and 2012’s   Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors were both released under his Purple Ribbon imprint and Def Jam Recordings. Atlanta, GA – Has it really been 10 years since the last Outkast   album? “#MLK #newLP #StayTuned #DaddyFatSaxxx,” reads the caption for the Instagram video. Reid. 3000’s rep and Big Boi   later confirmed   that the song Guwop was referencing is a track for the aforementioned third solo LP. Other details remain scant but the album will be released under his deal with Epic Records, the label he signed with in 2014 that   reunited him with L.A. Big Boi took to his IG account to share with fans that his third solo album is ready to go live from the famous Stankonia Studios. In that time, Big Boi has kept active with a pair of solo albums and a collaborative EP with Phantogram, and now the ATLien announced the completion of his third solo outing by way of an Instagram video posted on MLK Day. Big Boi and Phantogram’s Big Grams project dropped in 2015 and since then he’s kept quiet on the music front for the most part. Check out Big Boi’s messages to the fans in the clip above. At 41, the rapper born Antwan Patton has remained active since he and Andre 3000’s last opus, 2006’s Idlewild soundtrack. (His dog grooming products empire, on the other hand…)
Gucci Mane got fans’ hopes up for a new project from Andre Three Stacks and Daddy Fat Sax when he said he recorded a verse for Outkast   last September, but that idea was quickly shot down by Mr.

Filled with gems like “Everybody talk shit behind the keys / I’mma sting like a venereal disease,” Tyson’s diss record throws jabs at Soulja’s social media thuggery. Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy serves as punching bag on the song, as Tyson raps about training Chris Brown for the pair’s upcoming boxing match while a cadre of models lip syncs the words while working out, splashing around in a jacuzzi and beating up a beanie-wearing Soulja Boy stand-in. The gloves are off and the bars are out on “If You Show Up,” a diss track Mike Tyson dropped earlier today (January 17). Tyson even appeared on Canibus’ “Second Round K.O.” record for a little trash-talking. Tyson himself makes only a brief appearance at the end of the video, standing menacingly outside of a building. “If You Show Up” doesn’t serve as Tyson’s first rap rodeo. Despite the release of Mike Tyson’s “If You Show Up,” added details on the match between Soulja Boy and Chris Brown have not been revealed. “If you show up, it’s going down / I’m gonna teach him how to knock your ass out,” Tyson raps on the song’s hook. In the late ’90s, the professional boxer jumped on board Team Canibus in the rapper’s feud against LL Cool J. In an Instagram post uploaded a week ago, Tyson promoted the song as featuring Chris Brown, but the crooner is noticeably absent from the final product.

The freestyles Eminem was gushing about featured Royce rapping over the instrumentals to Phresher’s “Wait A Minute,” as well as DJ Khaled and Jay Z’s “I Got The Keys.”
DX had high praise for Royce last year too, putting   his Tabernacle: Trust The Shooter project in the top spot of our Best Mixtapes Of 2016. A screen capture of the text from his “Big Bro,” which Royce shared on Instagram on Monday (January 16), stated the following:
“Really? Ur an asshole. I hate u. After the Slaughterhouse rapper let loose two flame-emoji-worthy freestyles, he received praise from Em via text. Die.”

Haaaa Big Bro….

“It’ll be a weird encounter, because the Secret Service guys are gonna be there, and they’re gonna be tapping the whole conversation. Drake was quick to pay tribute to President Barack Obama on Instagram as the outgoing President made his farewell speech, but it was a different member of the Obama clan that Drizzy had praise for on Monday.

Joey Bada$$ appreciated that endorsement just like Drake did, sharing the picture on his Instagram account, but quickly became paranoid that the Secret Service was keeping tabs on him. But nonetheless, I’m down.”
We imagine that Drake isn’t quite as worried as Joey was, if for no other reason than the Secret Service will probably has their hands full with the inauguration this week… “I’d love to thank Malia in person,” he told the   New York Post last July. | Make sure you get your official Pro Era gear from theproera.com! It’s not the first time that either of the Obama daughters has been seen wearing rap brands: Sasha’s older sister Malia was photographed wearing Joey Bada$$’s Pro Era line in January 2015.

After going on about Harvey and his appeal to black women, he touches on the Congressman John Lewis controversy and the fact that Martin Luther King Jr.’s son met up with Trump on his “god damn daddy’s birthday” for the observed holiday today (January 16). They get Kanye West. Watch the videos above. Instagram – In a series of three Instagram video posts, one of Hip Hop’s most politically outspoken artists, T.I., called out Kanye West and comedic powerhouse Steve Harvey for playing into Donald Trump’s “hidden agenda.” West and Harvey have both taken private meetings with the President-elect, which has caused an uproar across social media platforms and media outlets alike. “Attn.!!!! Be clear…. A video posted by TIP (@troubleman31) on Jan 16, 2017 at 11:39am PST

Ok so this how it all breaks down guys…. titled the first caption where he doesn’t mention any names. Be aware. Or Be Bamboozled!!!”

Attn.!!!!

His reps say that the Atlanta rapper was simply trying to enjoy the game and support his friends, including Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones. According to gossip site Hollywood Life, the Freebandz leader sent his ex-fiancée Ciara and her husband a bunch of Falcons jerseys with quarterback Matt Ryan’s number for their young son, Future Jr. Future witnessed the Atlanta Falcons take down the Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson from the sidelines, but he might not have stopped there. CiCi posted pictures on game day of Baby Future in Wilson’s #3 jersey and shared after the loss that she is thankful for her family even with the loss. But the source who leaked the jersey info says that’s not his intention at all. After the internet saw Future watching Russell Wilson lose, it couldn’t help but cry petty. “He doesn’t think it’s being petty. Future has been critical of Wilson acting as a father figure to his son, but it seems things are on the up-and-up between Future and Ciara, especially as she called off her $15 million defamation lawsuit against him. “Future loves his Falcons and was so impressed with Matt Ryan’s performance that immediately after the game he sent several child size Ryan jerseys to Ciara and Russell’s for his son to wear,” the source says. to the next playoff game and wants his son to support the   Falcons and be part of the winning squad with a phenomenal quarterback   as they make a run for the Super Bowl.”
In a report   from TMZ published today, Future’s team doesn’t say anything about the jerseys, but seconds the motion that he was not acting petty and insists he meant no harm by attending the game. He plans on bringing Future Jr.

On Sunday (January 15), Carter retweeted a photo of her father and the 19-year-old Kodak side by side that was captioned, “RT for Wayne Like for Kodak.” Carter added a caption in her retweet that read, “When Lil Wayne doesn’t even know who the heck Kodak is,” which was shared and liked nearly 3,000 times respectively. He   has been challenging Wayne on the so-called “Best Rapper Alive” title and clamoring for a boxing match, not unlike Soulja Boy and Chris Brown’s impending celebrity showdown. However, Weezy’s 18-year-old daughter Reginae Carter has chimed in on the lightly smoldering feud to illustrate her dad might simply not know who the Florida rapper is. When Lil Wayne doesn't even know who the heck Kodak is https://t.co/KqjRfD6H3C
— Love me (@reginae_carter1) January 16, 2017

Although it seems like it’d be a stretch that Wayne hasn’t heard of Kodak, he’s claimed in times past not to know a lot of today’s hottest rappers and instead focuses mainly on his own art. Kodak Black nor Lil Wayne have added to Reginae’s comments. Lil Wayne famously rapped on his huge 2010 “6 Foot 7 Foot” single, “real Gs move in silence like lasagna” and has kept that credo in ignoring Kodak Black’s attempts to draw him into war. Kodak scoffed at that possibility in a recent interview with The Breakfast Club   that featured many awkward moments.

Please don't let these politicians and pundits dilute the radical legacy of Dr. King: Well, the most pervasive mistake I have made was in believing that because our cause was just, we could be sure that the white ministers of the South, once their Christian consciences were challenged, would rise to our aid. Spread knowledge,accept truth,fight hate, oppose prejudice, abandon foolishness today in His Honor!!!!!#USorELSE

Even with nothing I am able. They call today's social justice leaders, black lives matter and others, criminals and terrorist. — Robert Glasper (@robertglasper) January 16, 2017

Not until 2000 did all states accept Dr. While many enjoy   the time off or even numerous parades taking place around the nation, Hip Hop’s greatest took a moment to reflect on King’s work via social media. GOD Bless #HappyBirthdayDoctorKing

Alex Haley: Can you recall any other mistakes you've made in leading the movement? So you don’t have to, DX has collected an assortment of different posts paying homage to a man whose fight against injustice using non-violence set a blueprint for many to follow.

— Jasiri X (@jasiri_x) January 16, 2017 Today marks the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s civil rights legacy as the country honors what would have been his 88th birthday yesterday (January 15). Please. #MLKday #LANDOFTHEFREE new song out Friday. King told me do my thing. I felt that white ministers would take our cause to the white power structures. See you then. mean by "Creative Suffering"? King's birthday as a national holiday. We should all have a dream that stands for something. He taught us through his example the value of courage, truth, justice, and compassion. King! Judge me by my enemies. — Lecrae (@lecrae) January 15, 2017

Woke up from a dream where Dr. As our movement unfolded, and direct appeals were made to white ministers, most folded their hands—and some even took stands against us. Day

They still trying to get/understand the vision, u were just cut different, Real Atown vet, salute the G.O.A.T Dr Martin Luther King! 1/20 12AM EST.

“I screw up on America’s Got Talent all the time,” he says. But anyone who knows about performing and having inner ear and stuff, things like that can go wrong a lot.”
After the Times Square set, Carey said that Dick Clark Productions was responsible for the disaster, but the studio said it had no responsibility for the poor performance. Cannon continues by saying his own experiences working in television, especially   as host of   America’s Got Talent, help him understand how it’s not the superstar’s fault for the debacle. They set her up. Appearing on   The Ellen DeGeneres Show   Carey’s ex-husband speaks on what he believes is behind all of the technical difficulties that rang in 2017. Kyle (@tkylemac) January 1, 2017 “When there’s people saying things in your ear, I think she got a little flustered, but being the diva that she is, she was like, I’m just gonna walk around and pose for seven minutes.”
And pose she did as her adoring fans still screamed her name. That was a distraction. “I think the government did that. This Vine will go down in history as the final moment of 2016 and it's perfect. https://t.co/3d82rH7vAj
