Creepset: Offset Crashed Cardi B Show To Beg Her To Take Him Back, Twitter Is Going Off

Offset misses Cardi B and wants her back desperately. The Migos rapper went as far as crashing her show, and it went as badly anyone with a woke eye to toxic relationships would expect. 

Bardi was headlining at the Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles Saturday night (Dec. 15) when Offset got the bright idea to interrupt her on stage and beg for her forgiveness. During a break in her performance, he brought out flowers that spelled “Take Me Back Cardi.”

Offset got on the mic and said he loved her and would do whatever it takes to get her back. But apparently embarrassing her on stage (i.e. at the office) was not the move, so shortly after he left the stage to scattered boos.

Twitter was not with the sh*ts, calling out dudes who think it’s cool to demand Cardi get back with a guy who she’s not particularly feeling, baby daddy or not. It wasn’t lost on many that Offset was being manipulative considering he was the one who cheated on her repeatedly, allegedly.

Rolling Loud is also getting dragged since they were surely involved in letting Offset interrupt the headlining act for selfish reasons.

However, Cardi isn’t with y’all bullying of Offset.

Peep the assortment of reactions in the gallery. Take notes and don’t be that guy.

T.I. Only Has To Pay Up $300 Fine In Disturbing The Peace Case

T.I. had a bit of legal trouble to contend with after getting into it with his gated community’s security guard last May, leading to a handful of charges. The rapper and actor pleaded no contest to the event and will pay a $300 fine to clear the matter with the courts.

The Blast reports:

The rapper’s lawyer, Steven Sadow, tells The Blast he was in court with T.I. on Thursday where he agreed to a sweet plea deal.

We’re told T.I. pled no contest to a city ordinance violation, which is basically cursing in public. He paid a $300 fine and all other charges were dropped.

Back in May, the rapper was arrested for simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness following an incident with a security guard, Euwan James, who works for the community where he lives.

T.I. told The Blast the incident was motivated by “white cops in a very white area.” He also said he never laid a hand on the guard. He pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Prosecutors claimed the rapper was “yelling profanities at Mr. James, including cuss words and racial slurs, contrary to the laws of this state.”

As the outlet states, this will all be behind Tip after paying off the fine.

Offset Inserted In Cardi B’s $15M Legal Tussle With Former Manager

While the legal union between Cardi B and Offset continues to be up in the air, a new legal development for the Bronx starlet has surfaced which brought her estranged husband into the fold. A former manager of Bardi launched a suit with the superstar firing back with her own countersuit which puts Offset in this precarious legal position.

The Blast reports:

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Offset (real name: Kiari Cephus) is listed as a witness who will be deposed in Cardi’s battle with Klenord “Shaft” Raphael. The Migos star will be asked what he knows about Cardi’s relationship with her former manager, the royalties she made and other aspects of the case he may have information about.

The deposition is set to take place before July and could be tricky given his current situation with Cardi.

As The Blast previously reported, Raphael sued Cardi B for $10 million claiming she breached their contract by ditching him as her manager.

Cardi B counter-sued Raphael seeking $15 million in damages, accusing him of screwing her over after she entrusted him and his companies with many aspects of her business affairs.

The outlet adds that Cardi B signed a deal with Shaft in 2015 without a lawyer present which stated he was due to see 20 percent of her earnings. Cardi’s side is saying that Shaft’s inability to provide monthly accounting and other related items voids the terms of their deal.

Kanye West Slams Ariana Grande For Using Twitter Rants To Promote Song

In the midst of Kanye West unloading on Drake via Twitter, folks on the sidelines definitely had their jokes locked and loaded as expected. However, when singer Ariana Grande used the moment to promote a new track between she and culture hopper Miley Cyrus, Yeezy didn’t take kindly to it.

TMZ reports:

Ariana did indeed make fun of the Kanye and Drake Friday, minimizing what Kanye says was a physical threat by Drake to him and his family. Ariana joked about “grown men arguing online,” grousing it was taking attention away from her new single.

Ye fired back that he knew Ariana “said this to be cool and didn’t mean no harm,” but he still felt it was shading him. Fair point.

He goes on to say, “All of this foolishness weighed on my mental health so @arianagrande …” In another post, he says, “No one would ever choose to end up in a mental hospital and diagnosed with a mental disorder but god chose me to publicly go through this journey and it is beautiful.”

If we dare to interpret … Kanye seems to be saying Ariana — for whom he says he has love — knows full well he’s bipolar yet she jumped into the fray for pure self-promotion and in the process upset him.

Check out Grande’s tweet below.

Cyrus also fired a tweet off towards ‘Ye and Drizzy’s beef, but he didn’t check her.

Since getting out the bing earlier this past summer Kodak Black‘s been out and about trying to do good for himself and people around him.

Today (Dec. 14) the Florida rapper continues his road to redemption by releasing his sophomore album Dying To Live and judging from the fact that it’s 16 cuts deep you know he spent more time in the studio than in the streets to get this one done.

 

A few weeks ago Big K.R.I.T. issued a “Glorious Challenge” for up and coming artists looking to turn some heads with their rap or singing skills but today the Mississippi rapper comes through with a trey bag to show and prove how potent his own work can be.

 

Coming back with some new work for his Shaolin fans and followers, Method Man returns with a brand new LP in Meth Lab 2: The Lithium. Featuring other OG MC’s such as Snoop Dogg, Redman and Sheek Louch along with fellow Killer Bees like Raekwon, Masta Killah and Cappadonna, the 15-track album is bound to give you all the feels of the mid and late 90’s.

 

YFN Lucci dropped a new EP titled 3: Future.

Prada Called Out For Racist Blackface Imagery, Twitter Begins Cancellation Process 

Prada Fashion Week

Someone, probably a number of people, at Prada played themselves. The luxury brand, and specifically its Soho, NYC store’s storefront, face criticism and backlash for a collection that looked strikingly similar to Blackface imagery that made it into a window display.

Reports CBS News:

Chinyere Ezie was walking past a Prada store in downtown Manhattan Thursday when she saw what she described as a “racist and denigrating” caricature being displayed in the front of the store. In a Facebook post, she described “shaking with anger.”

“Today after returning to NYC after a very emotional visit to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture including an exhibit on blackface, I walked past Prada’s Soho storefront only to be confronted with the very same racist and denigrating #blackface imagery,” she wrote. 

“History cannot continue to repeat itself,” she added. “Black America deserves better.” She also tweeted sarcastically, “Thanks to #blackface @Prada, now you can take #sambo home with you for the holidays.”

The Internet caught wind of Prada’s racism and has been going in, rightfully so.

Prada issued a statement that ridiculously meh.

“The Pradamalia are fantasy charms composed of elements of the Prada oeuvre. They are imaginary creatures not intended to have any reference to the real world and certainly not blackface. We abhor all forms of racism and racist imagery. We will withdraw all of the characters in question from display and circulation,” a Prada Group spokesperson told CBS News.

It’s 2018, and the blatant use of such imagery is not to be tolerated. Even more maddening is that surely dozens of people signed off on the collection—and that no one stopped the display from getting created.

No one at the company thought this was racist beforehand? Total fail.

Check out the most poignant Twitter reactions in the gallery. Is Prada canceled or nah?

A smart dude would just have a landline and keep it at that. Just sayin.’

Kodak Black meanwhile seems like he likes to play dress-up as he dons some 50’s attire while living in the burbs in the retro black-and-white visual to the Lil Pump assisted “Gnarly.” Lil Pump did not play along by the way.

Trick Daddy Offers Ebro The Fade Over Kodak Black Interview

Media personality Ebro Darden caught flak after inviting Kodak Black on his Hot 97 radio program and seemingly cornering him into the uncomfortable subject of the rapper’s sexual assault case. Trick Daddy, who also hails from Florida like Kodak, offered Ebro the taper and the fade but the host claims he was just trying to be real about the situation.

Sitting with Nadeska Alexis, Ebro explained on Beats1 that he wasn’t at all trying to paint Kodak as an evil person but does believe the issue of sexual assault deserves a discussion.

“I was trying to show him that we take it seriously,” Ebro said. “You’re a young guy, but I also have to acknowledge the people watching this, and we can’t just gloss this over and act like it didn’t happen.”

He added, “I acknowledged he had a tumultuous past,” he said. “I didn’t even want a response from him, I actually put it forward so that the people watching that know what he’s going through and either have been through sexual assault themselves, know some people who have and just know that it’s a serious conversation.”

Trick Daddy didn’t take kindly to the interview, which prompted Kodak to storm out from the chat which he later claimed was a bid to protect his career and image.

“Ebro, you tried a young n*gga. Kodak my lil n*gga, n*gga. If nobody ain’t gon step up, I’m a step up, n*gga. You tryna be a fake ass Charlamagne. There’s only one Charlamagne Tha God, p*ssy. Keep Kodak name out your mouth. I want smoke, n*gga,” Trick Daddy said.

Kids See Ghost rapper Kid Cudi hit up Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Red Table Talk series to open up about his mental health issues over the years. In a preview, he confesses that he was “ashamed” and so he didn’t let anyone know what was going on at first.

“I was really food at keeping my troubles hidden. Even from my friends,” he said in the clip, first posted by PEOPLE. “I really was good with that—and it’s scary because you hear people say ‘I had no clue.'”

“It was me,” he added, taking all blame away from anyone who might feel guilty about not recognizing the signs. “I really went out of my way to keep what I was going through hidden because I was ashamed.”

Watch him open up below. Red Table Talk airs Monday on Facebook Watch.
