After years of teasing a solo project, Quavo is finally on his way to delivering his dolo debut and we now have the visuals for his first single.

In “L A M B T A L K” one third of the Migos flosses in front of a gang of Lamborghinis before the herd of Italian luxury automobiles take flight on the freeway. We wonder if Quavo did this “L A M B T A L K” dance after hustling Drake out of those 10 G’s.

Speaking of G’s, TDE’s newest artist Reason lets off his first clip under the TDE umbrella with “The Soul” where we witness REASON’s journey from the streets to the booth.

Teyana Taylor is not a fan of Jeremih. The R&B crooner, who just popped up on the cover of Playboy, took to Twitter to air out the singer and announce she is leaving his tour.

The first tweet announced her departure from the Later That Night Tour.

“I’ve been extremely mistreated on this tour so on that note i will NO longer continue to stay on the #LaterThatNightTour because if I do ima end up knocking this n*gga out. I’m sorry to all who has already purchased tickets to see me I will make sure everyone gets refunded!,” she tweeted.

But then, besides the fade threat, she dropped the hammer.

“Lazy, sneaky, jealous, conniving, selish, lame ass nigga! Don’t ever try to play me Petunia! They come to see me then 80% of the room leave after MY SET! work my ass off every city, every night! You’ve done nothing this whole tour but act like a DIVA in ya princess chair,” tweeted Taylor, @’ing Jeremih, so you know that it’s real.

We don’t want no smoke with Teyana Taylor. As for her Playboy cover, you can see it on the flip.

Ski Beatz Says He Literally Trashed An Entire Jay-Z Album & Big L Records In The 90’s

It’s no secret that many rappers leave behind a ton of unreleased songs and freestyles that may or may not ever see the light of day. It sucks when that unheard material belongs to some of today’s music icons and it’s especially painful to learn that they’ve been lost in the sands of time forever.

In an interview with DJBooth, producer Ski Beatz reveals that to be the case with some of his 90’s produced cuts which featured the likes of a pre-Reasonable Doubt Jay-Z, “Ebonics” era Big L, and “Coolie High” times Camp Lo. In the interview the Hip-Hop producer remembers that he didn’t just leave his Jigga and Big L produced songs on the cutting room floor, he literally trashed them and left them never to be heard again. What?!

“Around the time I was working for [Big] L, that’s when he passed,” Ski tells me over the phone. “Nobody heard the songs, and I did all those songs on ADAT http://tapes. Around that time, that’s when the whole Pro Tools and the wholecomputer thing started to come into play. I wasn’t even thinking about the future… Any ADATs I had, I just got rid of all of my ADATs and went into thecomputer world. I didn’t make [copies] of anything that we did.”

And if you thought that was bad, peep what he said about his Jay-Z produced cuts.

“That goes for a lot of JAY-Z. Before Reasonable Doubt, we had a whole album that we did, that nobody has ever heard. I did it on ADAT, and when I got rid of all the ADAT, I got rid of all the Big L stuff, all the JAY-Z stuff. Even unreleased Camp Lo music. I wasn’t even thinking.”

A. Whole. Album. This was classic Jay-Z. Hungry to make a name for himself Jay-Z. “I’d rather die enormous than live dormant that’s how we on it” Jay-Z. Heaven only knows what kind of gems ended up in a landfill somewhere.

Looks like we’ll have to add this to the list of legendary lost projects like Method Man’s original Tical album that was doomed to a flooded studio and that original Havoc produced Biggie record that Hav said was superior to Life After Death‘s “Last Dayz.”

Who Shot Ya?: Gunfire On Set Of 50 Cent and Tekashi69 Video

Shots were fired on the set of a video starring 50 Cent and Tekashi69 last night (August 14). It went down in Brooklyn, but none of the rappers on the set were a target, allegedly.

According to TMZ, witnesses say someone in a white Porsche, with New Jersey plates, rolled up and started licking off shots, possibly 11 in total. Per the authorities, the shells later found were from a 9mm firearm.

Besides 50 and Tekashi, other rappers on the scene included Uncle Murda—it was the video shoot for “Get The Strap” song—and Casanova. The latter previously had a beef with Casanova that has been squashed, and coincidentally turned himself into police today (August 15) due to his alleged involvement in a woman’s assault in a Chelsea, NYC diner.

Per the New York Daily News, the video shoot went down in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Fortunately, no one was hit by the gunfire.

Considering all the aforementioned rappers, don’t expect them to cooperate with authorities when it comes to finding the shooter.

Hairline Money: Drake Lost $10K To Quavo On A Single Half-Court Shot 

Though he’s the team ambassador for the Toronto Raptors franchise, an actual member of the basketball team Drake is not. Drake proved as much when he lost 10 bands to Quavo on a half-court shot and once again proved that his game leaves much to be desired.

The L took place earlier this past weekend during the Aubrey and The Three Migos tour when the headliners touched down in Kansas City for a Sunday night show. Before kicking off the concert Drizzy and Quavo decided to bet $10,000 on a single half-court shot and sho’nuff the 2018 Celebrity All-Star MVP Steph Curry’d his shot with a flick of the wrist. Drake meanwhile began construction on his next OVO flagship store in Kansas City after putting up a foundation size brick that rocked off the back of the rim (at least he didn’t air ball it as he’s known to do).

Will Drake never learn?

While Drake’s been racking up W’s like a Wu-Tang fan who can’t get enough Wu-Wear gear, 2018’s been putting quite a few L’s on the King of The North’s lap. Whether it was Pusha T’s scathing hot cup of tea being poured out for public consumption or Drizzy’s tour bus getting towed last week, much to the delight of his numerous haters Drake has been learning what it feels like to lose. That being said he still has his eight number 1 album of his career in Scorpion doing damage on the charts and he’s still the object of many women’s affection. In other words, he’s still taking home the chip regardless of how many L’s he took this season.

But just for the record, Drake needs to stop believing so much in his basketball game.

Hip-Hop Based Political Party Eyeing LL Cool J Or Busta Rhymes To Run For NY Governor

With a proven bigot in office, the Hip-Hop community now is taking political matters into their hands. A new party has been launched and is seeking the help of some legendary MC’s for representation.

Spearheaded by Jineea Butler, founder of the Hip Hop Union and Republican congressional candidate, the New American Party has been formed to advocate the interests and needs of urban communities.

The new political group is aiming to bring on some noted MC’s for representation. According to Butler she has been in communication with Busta Rhymes about potentially running in the New York Governor ballot. She has also reached out to LL Cool J who has yet to formally respond.

Jineea explains that securing top tier Rap talent as the face of the party will help drive awareness and votes. “We’re looking for somebody that can energize the vote so we can clear the 50,000 votes (needed to secure a guaranteed ballot line the next four years) and someone who resonates with millennials and young folks” she explained.

Even though her plans might be groundbreaking, time is against her. In order to secure a spot for the New American Party they would have to get 15,000 signatures via nomination petitions by August 21. However Butler remains confident she can get it done. “Part of what we want to show is that we can pull out large numbers in a short amount of time, that people can get involved in the political spectrum, and it’s worth the investment into the opportunity,” she claimed. “We’ve already got boots on the ground on this.”

Helping with this initiative is Eric B. of legendary Rap group Eric B. & Rakim. As of press time, Busta has not committed to a political run.

Elon Musk Shoots Down Azealia Bird Blast, Says He Never Met Her

Earlier this week, Azealia Banks dropped a wild bombshell of a claim that she was holed up in one of Elon Musk’s homes waiting on his girlfriend, Grimes, to record some music. According to Musk, the Tesla boss says he’s never met the Harlem rapper and a spokesperson stated her claims about Musk using drugs are unfounded.

Gizmodo reports:

Azealia Banks, the prodigious MC who remains a Twitter villain even after being banned from the service and an underground rapper even after being dropped from multiple record labels, let loose on Instagram after an allegedly disastrous weekend at Elon Musk’s home to see Grimes, Musk’s girlfriend and a fellow musician.

However, when reached via Twitter direct messages, Musk told Gizmodo that he “has never even met [Banks] or communicated with her in any way.” In other words, he doesn’t know her.

A Tesla spokesperson told our sister site, Jalopnik, that the claims were “complete nonsense,” but Banks is a veteran of long and nonsensical beefs. She’s feuded with everyone from Sarah Palin to Nick Cannon. And, like both Musk’s Space X endeavors, wants her future beefs to be interplanetary.

Yikes.

It appears that Banks is selling some brand new wolf tickets, making it tough to root for her despite her musical talent. Shouldn’t be too long before another social media meltdown gets unleashed to the masses.

Robert Glasper Put Lauryn Hill On Full Blast, Says Singer Cheated Musicians Out Of Money 

Creative Arts Emmy Awards 2017 Day 1 - Press Room

Robert Glasper has reached the no f*cks given portion of his career, and it showed in a recent interview. During the chat, the award-winning jazz and R&B musician and August Greene member aired out Lauryn Hill for her shady dealings and said that the singer hasn’t done enough to behave in the way she does.

As reported in full by our sister site Madame Noire, Glasper was a guest on 97.9’s The Mad Hatta Show and was prompted to speak on his time working with the former Fugees star. Glasper held nothing back and was quite passionate in expressing his disdain for how Hill treated him and his fellow musicians back in 2008 to the point of nearly docking his pay after she was apparently dissatisfied with how they were learning her backing music despite 10-hour practice sessions she allegedly changed daily.

From Madame Noire:

Host: Do you feel like y’all were messing up though?

Not at all. It was a superband.
She has a thing of—she likes to fire bands. I can name you—I can rattle off 15 guys off the top of my head. She will go on tour with a band and in the city that they’re doing a show, she’ll hold auditions for her band. One of my boys flew to Japan to do shows in Japan. While she’s in Japan, she’s holding auditions in the hotel, in the ballroom for her band. That’s super gangsta! And nothing’s wrong. The bands are good. She gets the best musicians. She just has a thing.

Anyway, the last rehearsal they go around to everybody, basically like ‘If you’re not cool, you can leave.’ I didn’t need that gig. I’m making money of my own. I have my own career at that time. I was eating a beef patty, I’ll never forget it. And I said, ‘When I finish my beef patty, I’m going home so y’all can do what y’all need to do.’

But look, I’m the principle piano player. I know they need me. The gig’s tomorrow. So I’m like, I’m going home. I walk out. The manager runs— first of all, before she even came in, the MD, my friend said, ‘Just so you know, don’t look her in the eye and you have to call her Ms. Hill.

The entire interview is worth a watch. Check out Robert Glasper letting the gat spray on Lauryn Hill in the clip below at the 27-minute mark.
