Draya Michele Seeks Inspiration From Ciara's Marriage Following Break Up

Draya Michele is newly single and everybody knows about it since the reality star has been posting subliminal shots at her ex-fiance Orlando Scandrick for weeks now. “Don’t hug a clown. Don’t kiss a clown. You’ll get their makeup on your face and everyone will know,” she wrote in one tweet, while another read: “People be waaaaaaacccckkkkk when you take a step back and look at them.”

While we can’t confirm the reason behind their break-up all sings allude to the idea that maybe Orlando did Draya dirty. In the meantime, Draya’s been keeping busy by hitting the gym and working on her physique but every now and then she’s been tempted to drop off another line about her single status. The latest share to Draya’s Instagram story is a re-shared image of Ciara’s husband Russell Wilson and her son, Future Jr. The caption reads, “What I gotta do?”

Considering how Ciara has previously expressed that she prayed for Russell to come into her life, maybe Draya’s hoping for a similar blessing. “I prayed for a God-fearing man; I prayed for discernment; I prayed for wisdom, to really learn from the wisdom that I gained from the experience I was going through. I prayed for a man that loved kids because obviously, me having my son— if you’re going to love me, you [have to] love him,” Ciara previously admitted

Draya may have to keep praying a little longer. 

Karlie Redd Rushed To ICU Following Brutal "Love & Hip-Hop" Fight: Report

Reality star Karlie Redd is always caught up in some crazy drama that is usually partly scripted for Love & Hip Hop. We’ve seen her name attached to some crazy headlines, including some stories about shit-stained sheets, sex toy lines, and much more. This past week, the rumor mill has been swirling and, apparently, Karlie up and got herself in a major fight inside of an Atlanta nightclub. She was reportedly injured so badly during the brawl that she was forced to the hospital, where she was later admitted to the ICU.

According to an unconfirmed report by AllHipHop, Karlie Redd has been released from the hospital after being involved in a violent altercation at a party. It is not clear how many people jumped the star or if she had provoked her attackers. However, Redd appears to be alright and is reportedly recovering from the trauma.

Social media has been reacting to the gossip news all week, wondering amongst themselves who could have been responsible for sending her to the intensive care unit. Clearly, her injuries must have been bad if she was deemed an appropriate patient for the ICU. It is also currently unknown whether or not cameras were rolling during the fight so, if we’re lucky, this might make it to TV next season. 

Get well soon, Karlie.

Meek Mill Trolls Tekashi 6ix9ine Over New Prison Photo

Meek Mill is not a very big fan of Tekashi 6ix9ine. In fact, he straight up doesn’t like the kid. Throughout the last year and a bit, the Philadelphia superstar has voiced his opinion on the rainbow-haired rapper on several occasions, using him as an example of why you should never snitch, participating in the meme barrage during his trial, and referring to him as a “vicious kid.” I think it’s fair to say that, upon 6ix9ine’s release from prison, he won’t be reaching out to Meek Mill for a feature. Last night, the Brooklyn native’s girlfriend shared an update after her man was denied the chance to go home early to serve the remainder of his sentence from the comfort of his own crib. The statement was accompanied by a new photo of Tekashi and, lurking in the comments, Meek Mill made sure to come through with some more quick work.

Jade’s picture with Tekashi69 was reposted by The Shade Room, among other outlets, and Meek Mill took the time to compliment/troll the rapper on his get-up. Realizing that he will need to likely enter a witness protection program against his own will, Meek wrote: “That witness protection drip.”

Although his hair is darker, there are still signs of multicolor dye, which begs the question… who has been touching up this man’s hair? How do you think 69 is looking these days?

Tyrese Suggests Cop Thriller "Black And Blue" Was "Suppressed" Due To Racism

Not every film will be a hit at the box office, but Tyrese Gibson claims he knows exactly why his movie Black and Blue wasn’t a commercial success. The film stars Naomi Harris as a New Orleans officer who happens to capture the police shooting death of a drug dealer on her body cam. She later realizes that corrupt officers are responsible and links up with the one person she knows will help her stay alive while bringing down the wicked powers that be.

The film had a budget of $12 million and brought in almost $23 million. The action-thriller wasn’t the blockbuster success that producers had hoped for, especially with a cast that also included Frank Grillo, Mike Colter, Reid Scott, and Tyrese Gibson. The latter recently took to his Instagram page to share his thoughts on the movie’s lack of momentum, citing that racism was a key factor.

In an Instagram video, Tyrese shared that he’d received Blu-Ray versions of his film. He started off by saying he doesn’t usually pull the “race card,” but he’s “speaking facts.” He added, “When Black and Blue was in theaters, they never put the name on the marquee unless you specifically went to the front desk to request the movie, you didn’t even know the movie was playing in certain theaters. So many people were all over the internet going public about what was going on. And we know.”

The Fast & Furious star said that “CG and special effects” films receive so much recognition because “they just want to turn a profit. I get it. I’m apart of that game, too. But when you do movies like this that speaks to the culture, that speaks to the reality of what we have to live every single day, sh*t can get a little uncomfortable.” Although the movie was “suppressed,” the actor said he was “so proud” to have been involved with Black and Blue.

Check out Tyrese’s full video and the trailer for Black and Blue below. If you’ve seen the movie, let us know if it’s worth watching.

Sacramento’s Bugbee Talks New Hit, Upcoming Album & West Coast Hip Hop

Music videos are an essential part of storytelling in Hip Hop.

For Sacramento rapper Bugbee, they are a means of making astonishing movies with impressive lyrics and catchy hooks. The 26-year-old saw an influx of attention last year from his Above Average project and now he’s back for more. Today, Bugbee treats fans to his brand new video for “Fast Money,” a slow-motion banger accompanied by cinematic visuals.

“The “Fast Money” record represents getting to the bag by any means necessary,” Bugbee exclusively states. Check out the video and our interview below.

How did you initially get into writing and recording music?

I was selling weed to a dude in college who had a studio. He heard me freestyling one night and offered to give me his audio equipment to record and I dove in, kept learning, investing in myself and never looked back.

What is the inspiration behind the “Fast Money” visuals?

The “Fast Money” record represents getting to the bag by any means necessary. In life, there will always be obstacles whether women, friends, distractions in between you and what you desire and the only thing that’s really stopping you is you.

When people listen to the song, what do you want them to take away from it?

I want the listener to be motivated, inspired or any way able escape reality through the music.

Is there anyone in particular that you’ve been working with heavily to produce your next project?

My entire catalog thus far has been produced exclusively by Ted DIGTL with some co-production from Jon Wiilde. We have created our own ecosystem and were continuing to build a sound original to us that comes from the heart and soul. They remain as the collaborators I’m most excited to continue to work with.

What can people expect to hear on your forthcoming full-length release?

Desperado drops January 20th, this project is full of bangers, a lot of high energy music that really encompasses a lot of the skills and tools we have in the shed. Some would call it hip hop but we take pride in taking risks in genre-bending sound when we are in the lab cooking up. Call it what you want, ultimately, we want to create amazing, timeless music. The season has only just begun.

As far as music goes, what do you want people to remember you as?

People will always recognize the real from the fake. I want everyone to see me for me. I’m not a one-dimensional person at all so I don’t like to make one-dimensional music and I think this project reflects that. I want to continue to be an originator who inspires the listener.

Missy Elliott Tearfully Reflects On Illness: "I Couldn't Even Hold A Pen To Write"

Things were a tad emotional at TV One’s annual Urban Honors awards in Washington, D.C. Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott was given the Music Innovation Award, an honor that was presented to her by longtime friend Lil Kim. It was a tender moment on stage as Missy took a moment to thank Kim for being family to her for all of these decades.

“First I want to thank Lil Kim cause… It’s hard to find people in the industry that become like family,” Missy began. “We’re beyond cameras, you know, getting in front of cameras and pretending that we are family. We are truly family. She’s been my sister for so long and I always have looked up to her because when I first seen her, you know, I always been a big girl. Kim had on the little swimsuits on and I was like, ‘Oh, nah, I ain’t finna do that.’ Internet ain’t out but I’ll shut it down in the future if I pull that stunt.” The audience laughed as she continued, “But, you are a trailblazer and an innovator yourself and I want you to know that.”

She also made sure to give a shout out to Da Brat, noting that the former So So Def rapper was her “sister.” Later on during her speech, Missy became choked up. “When I look back over my life,” she said as she started to cry. The audience clapped and cheered her on and Lil Kim stood by her side and encouraged her to continue. “I was sick. I couldn’t even hold a pen to write. And it was so much to say give up. But as I stand here with all of you, I thank you ’cause it’s so much talent in this room.” Watch her emotional speech in full below.
