I'm gonna let POWER return on my birthday. Now   she’s planning on suing Mr. Curtis Jackson for the punching incident. POWER, BMF, Tomorrow Today. Her legal representative   Warren Brown called Fiddy’s behavior “cowardly.”
In the meantime, 50 has recently turned to Instagram to give an update on the next season of his highly popular crime drama   Power. The woman, named Donnetta Derr, was brought on stage and eventually   twerked for the crowd. Make sure you put STARZ in your cable package. A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent) on Apr 13, 2017 at 10:53pm PDT Footage from the concert appeared to show the woman pulling 50 off the stage and into the crowd after he’d reached out to shake hands. As he stumbled forward, he socked her in the chest. According to TMZ, Derr went to a lawyer after taking a trip to the hospital. This season is even better then the last. Looks like 50 Cent may be getting into a legal battle   for punching an overly enthusiastic female audience member   during a show last week in Baltimore. Coming soon!!!

The disappearance of any hard feelings over the secret album debacle was evident on Twitter as fans hastily offered praise for Kendrick’s Coachella performance. Indio, CA – Despite a handful of   theories involving the possible link between the Easter holiday and the release of a secret Kendrick Lamar album, rumors of a new K-Dot project dropping on Sunday (April 16) proved to be nothing more than fantasy. The grief was short-lived for Kendrick fans though, given that the Compton rhymer’s performance at Coachella proved to be a worthy consolation prize. Embed from Getty Images

Serving as headliner on Sunday, the rapper weaved his way through both new and old material as he performed everything from “Money Trees” to a handful of DAMN tracks, including “DNA” and “Element.”

Although Kendrick primarily rocked the stage solo, he did welcome some   surprise guests.



A Yelp page for The Madison Club features a similar set of one-star reviews. Although The Madison Club in La Quinta, California was once named one of the “Best Damn Clubs” in the country, Drake isn’t here for the country club/private residence he stayed at over   Coachella weekend. Drake also accused the establishment of racial profiling. In an Instagram post that has since been deleted, the Canadian crooner/rapper referred to the private residential community and country club as “the most offensive place” he’s every stayed at. “The most offensive place I have ever stayed at in my life with staff who pick and choose who they are going to accommodate based on racial profiling,” Drake wrote in the caption to his Instagram post, which included a photo of The Madison Club logo. You don’t mess with Drizzy and not get dragged. The Facebook page for the country club/residence, which describes itself as “the most exclusive private residential community in La Quinta, California,” is now littered with less-than-favorable reviews and is sitting at a score of 2.9. A golf membership at the country club is $250,000, while golf dues are $3,625 a month, according to this real estate website. Here’s a screen capture of the Instagram post. “Y’all upset Drake and his crew. The Madison Club has yet to respond publicly to Drake’s allegations. Consisting of luxury estate residences and villas, homes at The Madison Club sell for millions. Here take an L and have a seat with United Airlines you’re done,” one Facebook user wrote. “Don’t ever disrespect the 6 God again you donkeys. Watch how you speak on his name,” another user added.



The footage appears to be from March 18, 2016. No charges were ever laid against Cole as a result of the raid, as his producer Elite explained to Complex   last December: “They go downstairs and all they see is a studio … It’s just crazy ironic because out of anybody, they picked the wrong person.

Introspective lyrics, a stripped-back piano-laden beat, and a wholesome music video? He’s out here doing extremely positive things for the community and for young artists.”
The incident did inspire Cole’s song “Neighbors,” which is about white neighbors assuming the black people in their affluent neighborhood are there selling drugs. The whole thing screams “Platinum with no features … again.” On a more uplifting note, the documentary, directed by Scott Lazer, also featured a new J. J. Cole track, a minute of which can be seen   in the video below. Cole, as well as CCTV footage of the SWAT raid on the artist’s home recording studio that inspired the track “Neighbors.”
The documentary, which aired Saturday night, revealed the footage that shows several heavily armed SWAT team officers kicking in the doors of the studio. New J. The new   4 Your Eyez Only   HBO documentary features a teaser of some new music from J. Cole is the last person to do anything like that.

However, the misunderstanding has since been cleared up. It became clear that New York artist Sam Spratt had been working on Logic’s album cover since before Freddie Gibbs   was acquitted of sexual assault in Austria last September. Both Logic’s   Everybody   and Gibb’s   You Only Live 2wice   album artwork featured European Renaissance-style paintings, prompting Gibbs to call out Logic on Instagram. Blessings. Gibbs shared a screenshot of both men smiling widely while chatting to each other, with the caption: “I guess we both like fine art ?,” and tagging Logic. Freddie Gibbs and Logic have worked through their differences after Gibbs called out Logic for using an album trailer and cover art similar in concept to his own. Gibbs had originally written: “Dear @logic301 I hope you purchase my album on Friday due to the fact that you just blatantly jocked my shit.
