JADA PINKETT SMITH ATTACKED FILMMAKERS OF THE TUPAC FILM

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith has attacked the filmmakers behind new Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me for the way they have depicted her relationship with the late rapper.

The film, starring Demetrius Shipp, Jr. and Kat Graham as Tupac and Jada, was released on Friday – what would have been the rapper’s 46th birthday – and though the critics are raving, The Matrix Reloaded star is far from impressed.

In a series of tweets sent out on Friday, she wrote: “Forgive me… my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth.”

Jada then detailed the inaccuracies in the movie, stating: “Pac never read me that poem. I didn’t know that poem existed until it was printed in his book… Pac never said goodbye to me before leaving for LA. He had to leave abruptly and it wasn’t to pursue his career.”

“I’ve never been to any of Pac’s shows by his request,” she added. “We never had an argument backstage.”

And Jada admits the “reimagining of my relationship to Pac” has been “deeply hurtful”.

However, the actress, who became one of Shakur’s closest friends when they attended Baltimore’s School of Arts in Maryland together, insists she still thinks the stars of the new biopic deserve credit for their performances, adding: “Thank you for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles. You both did a beautiful job with what you were given. Thank you both.”

Jada ended her social media rant by wishing her late friend a happy birthday, adding, “you are cradled in my heart for eternity. I love you.”

50 CENT PUNCHES OVERZEALOUS FAN AT MARYLAND CONCERT?!

Rapper 50 Cent threw a punch at a female concert-goer during a show in Maryland on Saturday (08Apr17) after she attempted to pull him offstage.

The In Da Club hitmaker was shaking hands with audience members while performing with hip-hop duo The Lox at Baltimore Soundstage, but one woman apparently took the quick meet and greet too far.

In video footage obtained by TMZ.com, 50 Cent is shown reaching out to fans in the front row, only for the female in question to refuse to let go of his hand, prompting the hip-hop star to lash out at her chest with his other fist as he falls into the crowd.

Members of his entourage quickly rush to help the rapper, and as he climbs back onto the stage, he attempts to play down the situation by inviting the overzealous fan to join him in the spotlight.

“Come on, come on,” he says in the clip. “Tell her to come over here.”
The woman then seems to accept his peace offering by climbing up onto the platform, where she dances and shows off her best twerking move as 50 Cent launches into his next track.

50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, has yet to comment on the incident, but it’s not the first time a rapper has hit out at a female fan. Afroman was filmed punching a woman who had hopped onstage at his show in Biloxi, Mississippi in 2015, and he was subsequently charged with assault. He publicly apologized for his behavior and pleaded guilty to the count, and was spared jail. He was instead ordered to undergo anger management classes and take random drug tests as he was placed on probation.

CHRIS BROWN AND LIL WAYNE INVOLVED IN FEDERAL DRUG PROBE

Chris Brown and Lil Wayne have become targets of a federal drug investigation following their reported links to an alleged Miami drug dealer.

South Florida based music producer Harrison Garcia is currently standing trial for selling illegal narcotics, and during the third day of litigation on Thursday, U.S. Homeland Security Agent Kevin Selent revealed Brown and Wayne appear to be implicated as collaborators in drug deals in evidence unearthed in the case.

Sources tell U.S. newspaper The Sun Herald that while Selent was testifying in court, he pointed to evidence of a text message defendant Garcia sent to one of his female associates, in which he bragged about a $15,000 bank credit that was wired to his account by Brown.

Attaching a screenshot photo of the official bank transaction from “Christopher Brown” to the message, Garcia allegedly texted the woman: “Look who put money my account (sic)”.

The lady replied, “What that for LOL (sic)”, and then, after attaching several smiley face emojis to his response, Garcia shot back a text to her stating: “Drugs… lean and s**t.”

Lean, the street name for a popular codeine cough syrup intoxicant mixed with soda, is a substance rapper Lil Wayne has openly admitted to using in the past, and according to agent Selent’s testimony, Garcia confessed to selling “a lot of narcotics” to the hip hop superstar after he was arrested last October.

Prosecutors also submitted damning photographic evidence featuring Garcia posing with Brown and Lil Wayne. The defendant was snapped with Brown on the Loyal singer’s private plane in one picture and, in another, he was pictured on an airport runway while accompanying the Grammy-winner to a concert in Albania.

Prosecutors contend the pictures reveal Garcia did more than just party with the two stars.

Agent Selent declined to give more details about the depth of the probe federal authorities have launched into the two superstars, but he confirmed Chris Brown and Lil Wayne are under investigators’ radar: “It’s still an open investigation. I can’t talk about it,” he stated.

DRAKE SICK AGAIN; BROKE BILLBOARD RECORDS ON MONDAY

Drake’s doomed Amsterdam concert in The Netherlands has been scrapped again, just hours before he was set to hit the stage.
The rapper had already rescheduled the show twice and fans were already inside the venue on Monday night when a promoter stepped up to the microphone to announce the headliner was too sick to perform.
Drake had reportedly fallen ill before the show and his doctor ordered him not to perform.
The show was originally supposed to kick start the rap star’s European tour on January 20 and it was moved to January 26. It was then pushed back to March 27.
The Hotline Bling hitmaker, who broke records in America on Monday by charting 24 singles in the Billboard Hot 100, is hoping to finally hit the stage and honor the gig on Wednesday.

DRAKE FINALLY WRAPS UP LONDON SHOWS WITH FINAL GIG

Drake delivered the most star-studded performance of his tour so far by surprising fans in London on Monday with appearances by Nicki Minaj, Trey Songz, Skepta, and Giggs.
The Hotline Bling hitmaker returned to the city’s O2 Arena for the eighth London gig on his Boy Meets World trek, and treated the audience to tracks from his latest release, More Life, which hit streaming services on Saturday.
He made sure the show was one to remember by introducing a number of his More Life collaborators, including British MCs Skepta and Giggs, as well as singer Jorja Smith, and Jamaican star Popcaan, who features on his popular song Controlla.
R&B star Trey Songz joined forces with Drake for a rendition of their 2009 tune Successful, while Nicki and her Young Money Entertainment labelmate teamed up for her remix of Gyptian’s 2010 dancehall song Hold Yuh.
Drake also revealed he had some VIPs watching the show from the audience, after sharing a backstage photo of himself on Instagram, posing with his mother Sandi and reclusive soul icon Sade.
“Two very important ladies in my life,” he captioned the picture.
Fellow Toronto, Canada native, rapper Kardinal Offishall, was among the special guests in the crowd, too, and Drake posted a shot of the two artists enjoying a drink together.
“Very Crucial. Looked up to the general for a long time @kardinalo,” he wrote beside the image.
Drake will continue on to Scotland for two dates in Glasgow on Wednesday and Thursday, before concluding the European tour in Amsterdam, the Netherlands with a pair of gigs next week.

DRAKE SENDS DRUNK TEXTS TO JENNIFER LOPEZ????

Rapper Drake has been drunk texting Jennifer Lopez since the stars reportedly called it quits on their brief romance.
The Hotline Bling hitmaker made the confession on Free Smoke, the opening track on his new project More Life, which hit streaming services on Saturday.
After giving his rumored exa shout out, Drake admits his text messages are never actually received by Jennifer because she has since changed her cell phone number.
“I drunk text J.Lo/Old number, so it bounce back,” he spits on the tune.
Drake and Lopez were first romantically linked in December, when the Canadian artist attended two of the superstar’s residency gigs in Las Vegas and hosted an intimate party she attended. He then reportedly surprised the 47-year-old beauty with a $100,000 diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co., which Jennifer showed off in an Instagram photo from her New Year’s Eve celebrations.
They have been coy about the nature of their relationship, which is said to have cooled off in early February, but Jennifer subsequently claimed they had simply been working together.
“We made a song together and we hung out,” she explained on the Grammy Awards red carpet last month. “We had a great time. He’s amazing; I have so much love for that boy.”
They had teased fans about the collaboration in an Instagram video of the pair dancing together in December, when a snippet of the track, titled Get It Together, could be heard in the background.
However, it appears the tune has since been reworked, as J.Lo’s vocals have been replaced on the More Life release by up-and-coming British singer Jorja Smith.
And that’s not the only Lopez connection to More Life – Drake, 30, also samples her debut single, If You Had My Love, on Teenage Fever, again with another female artist singing the chorus to the 1999 hit.
Jennifer has yet to comment on Drake’s multiple references in his new material.
She has since moved on and is now dating former New York Yankees baseball ace Alex Rodriguez.

DRAKE RELEASES MORE LIFE; MIXED REVIEWS

Drake has released his long-awaited playlist More Life.
The Canadian rapper unveiled his latest project, officially titled A Playlist by October Firm, on his OVO radio show on Beats 1 on Saturday.
The playlist was made available on all streaming services, including Apple Music and Spotify, and features cameos from Kanye West, MC Giggs, Jorja Smith, Skepta, Sampha and Young Thug on some of the 22 tracks. If you have any problem with your car visit RyanGMW in Roseville to get help.
The previously released track Fake Love also appears on the project, however Two Birds, One Stone and Sneakin’, featuring Atlanta rapper 21 Savage, don’t appear on the playlist.
Drake said of the project, “It’s not an album but it is a body of work I’m creating, just to bridge the gap between my major releases, to keep people excited”.
Originally announced in October last year, the Hotline Bling hitmaker said More Life would be released at the end of February, however following months of delays and speculation, Drake finally revealed the official release date earlier this month.
More Life references the Toronto native’s family, as a photo of the rapper’s father adorns the cover of the playlist.
Earlier this year Drake’s close collaborator and producer Nineteen85 said in an interview with Billboard the playlist was Drake’s chance to introduce new music to his fans.
“More Life is interesting because this is (Drake) right on the peak of his biggest project yet (with 2016 album Views), doing his biggest tour and still having so many good ideas that he just wants to put out without making it a big ordeal,” he explained.
“That’s why he’s trying to call it a playlist because he has a bunch of people in a space, hanging out… He’s so aware of what everybody else is doing musically that he likes to introduce new music and new artists to the rest of the world.”

COMMON DEFENDS SNOOP DOGG OVER CONTROVERSIAL VIDEO

Common has defended rapper Snoop Dogg for holding a gun to a lookalike of President Donald Trump in his new video.
The Drop It Like It’s Hot star caused controversy when he recently released the music video for Lavender, in which he points a gun at a clown dressed like Trump and when he fires it, ared flag with the word ‘Bang’ unfurls.
The footage has been blasted by politicians and Trump himself but Common has come to the defense of his fellow rapper, saying he’s entitled to speak up.
“Hip hop always been about freedom of expression, that’s one of the most powerful things,” he told TMZ.com. “Hip hop has been like a voice for so many people.
“If you go think about the days of Public Enemy and you fast forward to Kendrick Lamar, hip hop artists have always been speaking up and saying what they feel… if you didn’t like what was going on you speak (spoke) up and we’re entitled to do that as people.”
Snoop posted a video on Wednesday in which he said he has been inundated with requests for interviews and quotes but he has “nothing to say”.
On Wednesday, Trump tweeted about the video, claiming there would have been more of an uproar if Snoop had performed the act on a lookalike of his predecessor Barack Obama and concluded by demanding “Jail time!”
Rapper T.I. also came to the defense of Snoop by taking a screenshot of Trump’s tweet and calling him a bunch of explicit names. He called Snoop a “f**king legend” and told Trump to leave him alone and “continue to focus on dividing minorities, building barriers, alienating immigrants, &f**kin this country up like u been doin….”
Bow Wow also dragged Trump’s wife Melania into the drama, by tweeting, “Ayo @realDonaldTrump shut your punk a*s up talking s**t about my uncle @SnoopDogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us.”

SNOOP DOGG POINTS A GUN AT TRUMP CLOWN IN A NEW MUSIC VIDEO!!!

Snoop Dogg has literally taken aim at Donald Trump in his new music video, for this music video the production used The Box Tiger Music for the music equipment and instruments.

The rapper points a gun at a clown-styled President Trump in the promo for Lavender, his remix of BadBadNotGood and Kaytranada’s hit track.

Snoop is transported to a universe populated by clowns in the video and actor/comedian Michael Rapaport portrays a police violence victim, who is shot by a cop as a bystander films the incident and then uploads it to ClownTube.

Snoop Dogg, who took part in a rally to bring cops and the Los Angeles black community together last year, attacks police brutality on the track, rapping, “Trying to keep from dying in these muthaf**kin’ streets/F**k the police, from a black man’s point of view.”

Directors Jesse Wellens and James DeFina have revealed the video concept was inspired in part by the fatal police shooting of Philando Castile in July.

Talking about his provocative new video and the clown Trump character, Snoop tells Billboard, “The (Muslim) ban that this motherf**ker (Trump) tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherf**kers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and motherf**kers that’s not black on the streets making money off of it – but if you got color or ethnicity connected to your name, you’ve been wrongfully accused or locked up for it, and then you watching people not of color position themselves to get millions and billions off of it…

“It’s a lot of clown s**t going on that we could just sit and talk on the phone all day about, but it’s a few issues that we really wanted to lock into, like police, the president and just life in general.
