Eminem Attacks Trump in BET Cypher

Never one to be shy with his words, Eminem made a blistering return to the music scene via a passionate takedown of Donald Trump in a freestyle broadcast on BET’s Hip-Hop Awards.

Filmed Friday in his hometown of Detroit, the Grammy Award winner went after the president in a nearly five-minute cypher performance, where he referred to Trump as a “bitch,” and called him out for his handling of Charlottesville, and his recent attack on the NFL player protests.

In what Eminem has deemed “The Storm,” he rapped, “This is his form of distraction/ Plus, he gets an enormous reaction/ When he attacks the NFL, so we focus on that/ Instead of talking about Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada/ All of these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers.”

Trump wasn’t the rapper’s only target, as he had a strong message for people who claim to be supporters of both men. “And any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his,” he continued. “I’m drawing in the sand a line/ You’re either for or against/ And if you can’t decide who you like more in your split/ On who you should stand beside/ I’ll do it for you with this/ F— you.”

Raising his fist in the air, a move he says is for former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began the national anthem kneeling movement, Eminem concluded, “The rest of America stand up. We love our military and we love our country, but we f—ing hate Trump.”

Trey Songz Takes Plea Deal

It looks like Trey Songz – AKA Tremaine Neverson – got himself into some trouble, and this time it’s not anything to do with Halle Berry! E! News confirmed today the 32-year-old R & B singer, pleaded guilty to not one but two misdemeanor charges of disturbing the public.

Trey Songz Pleads Guilty To Two Misdemeanors

And what did he do exactly? Apparently, his arrest occurred because he wouldn’t get off the stage at the Joe Louis Arena on the 28th of December 2016.

When Songz was performing with other artists including, Young M.A., as well as Lil’ Yachty, organizers told him his time on the stage was coming to a close, so he freaked out.

Sources from the Detroit Police Department claim the singer became aggressive and visibly aggravated.

He grabbed microphones as well as monitors from the stage and started chucking them off into the crowd.

An insider said to E! News the Detroit Police attempted to de-escalate the situation but the singer continued to snap out.

Because of his actions, he was summarily arrested then taken into custody for the destruction of property and resisting arrest.

He stood in front of the court the following morning and was released on a bond of $25,000.

Lucky for Trey, he was given the option of pleading guilty and avoiding several convictions.

Trey took part in a plea deal, where the charges of resisting and obstructing justice, as well as aggravated assault were alleviated.

Unfortunately, for the singer, he was sentenced to 18 months of probation. If that isn’t bad enough, Songz has to take classes for anger management and will submit to screenings for substance abuse as well as pay restitution for his crimes. Hopefully, Trey learned from his mistakes and won’t do it again. However, we can’t help but wonder what is his side of the story?

R Kelly Hires Bill Cosby’s Lawyer

R Kelly has reportedly hired Bill Cosby’s lawyer to help him wade through the latest round of sexual assault allegations leveled against him.

Monique Pressley specializes in in civil litigation, crisis management and communications. According to The Daily Mail, she joined Kelly’s legal team following last week’s explosive Buzzfeed report alleging Kelly of holding several women in a sex cult.

Pressley previously represented Cosby in his own sexual assault case before stepping down last August.

It’s unclear whether Kelly is currently under investigation. Consequence of Sound has reached out to various law enforcement officials; the Johns Creek Police Department confirmed a welfare check back in December 2016, but Kelly’s residence was vacant when officers arrived. Other law enforcement officials declined comment.

Written by veteran Chicago journalist Jim DeRogatis, the Buzzfeed article alleges Kelly of brainwashing, grooming, and imprisoning six different women at his homes in both Chicago and Georgia. The story came to light after the family of one woman, 19-year-old Jocelyn Savage, reached out to DeRogatis. Three members of Kelly’s inner circle subsequently corroborated the parents’ allegations. Savage’s parents say their daughter has completely cut off communication with them and they fear she is suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.

In a subsequent interview with TMZ, Savage disputed her parents’ account, saying, “I am totally fine. I’m happy where I’m at. Everything is okay with me.” She said she hasn’t spoke to her parents in “five or six months” due to “everything they’ve been causing, problems in my life, saying [I’m a] hostage and being held against my will.” However, she became flustered and refused to answer TMZ’s questions regarding her whereabouts and whether or not she’s with other people.

For his part, Kelly released a terse, threatening statement through his other attorney, Linda Mensch. “Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed at the recent revelations attributed to him,” the statement reads. “Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”

DRAKE LIL WAYNE TATTOO IS WEEZY APPROVED!!

Lil Wayne was completely caught off guard by Drake’s new tat honoring him when his prodigy sent him a photo of it … 5 months ago!!!


That’s right … Drake’s new arm ink went unnoticed for almost a half a year, at least to the general populous. We’re told Drizzy got it while overseas and sent Wayne a pic when it was done, and Wayne was beyond floored and honored, since loyalty’s a big deal with him.

The tat’s on Drake’s tricep, so it’s covered by the average t-shirt, which explains why no one picked up on it sooner.

As for returning the favor, no word yet on that … space on Lil Wayne’s already heavily tatted bod is pretty limited.

Jay Z Announces New Album ‘4:44’ For June 30

As if Jay Z didn’t have enough on his hands, the hip-hop legend has just shared details on a new album, 4:44. But you won’t be able to buy it or stream it just anywhere.

The album will drop June 30 for subscribers of Sprint or Jay Z’s Tidal platform through what’s pitched as a first-of-its-kind partnership between both companies.

Chatter on a new Hov LP heated up in recent weeks, and the entrepreneur and music man threw fuel on that fire last week with a mysterious campaign which saw the numbers “4:44” and the date “6.30.17” dished up on posters and online.

The plot thickened in the hours before midnight when a teaser video appeared on Tidal. Then the big revealed happened as the clock struck twelve.

The corporate partnership behind the U.S. release is the first in a series of music exclusives, according to a joint statement, and it follows the announcement in January that Tidal sold a 33 percent stake in the company to Sprint for $200 million, giving it access to the telecom company’s 45 million customers. Outside the U.S., 4:44 will be available to stream only on Tidal for now. It’s unclear for how long the exclusive window will last, though Billboard has reached out to reps for comment.

As part of the U.S. campaign, Tidal and Sprint have pledged support to the 1Million Project, an educational initiative from Sprint and the Sprint Foundation that will assist 1 million low-income U.S. high school students who aren’t connected to the Web at home.

News on the surprise album release caps an eventful week during which Jay Z and his wife Beyonce welcomed twins and the artist was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, becoming the first rapper to achieve that honor. The new LP is the followup to 2013’s Magna Carta… Holy Grail, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

On Twitter Saturday, Nicki Minaj began the night mentioning she was reviewing entries for a contest in which fans made lip-sync videos to her song “Regret in Your Tears” with the prize joining Minaj at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards or chilling with her in the studio.

Then a fan tweeted Minja asking if she would pay his tuition. “Show me straight A’s that I can verify w/ur school and I’ll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious. Shld I set it up?” Nicki responded.

Within a few minutes, Minaj started taking requests to pay for tuition and other college expenses with the requirement that you show proof of a 4.0 GPA.
