Jay Z might be having marital issues with Beyonce, but he might have more with this paternity suit.Recently, a video has surfaced of Wanda Satterthwaite, stating that she is in support of her son Rymir Satterthwaite's legal case with the Hip Hop mogul.Wanda claims that she gave birth to Hov's love child over 20 years ago, and nothing has been done to confirm that Jay-Z's the actual father, until recently.According to Radar Online the suit has been observed by the Supreme Court for fraud and collusion, which allegedly helped Hov finesse his way out of getting a DNA test.Rymir made several attempts to get Jay Z to do a DNA test, however, the aspiring rapper filed a civil suit in 2014 after failing multiple times.Check out Wanda Satterthwaite's official statement below.
Rumor has it that Jay Z may be in the process of recording a response to his wife, Beyonce's, 'Lemonade'. We wonder what he will call this answer to the album that has all of the women going crazy. The music mogul is supposedly recording his own version of the event. According to US Weekly,"Jay is working on his album telling his side of things"We aren't sure if this is true or not, but it would make an incredible year of music, and it might even bring us another joint tour from the power couple. I honestly don't even believe 'Lemonade' was completely a true testimony of problems in their marriage. It seems more like the two are marketing geniuses. Zendaya has even revealed that Jay was around for a lot of the filming of the 'Lemonade' special. 'Lemonade' just seemed to shine light on topics and themes that most women can relate to. Do you think 'Lemonade' was Bey's truth or just another work of art

(AllHipHop News) After a year of big press firings, hirings, controversy and varying reports on the numbers, Tidal has officially released it's first year tallies for it's subscribers.
As the Jay Z fronted company glides into its sophomore year of existence, tomorrow marks the first anniversary of the famed New York City launch that pictured a host of entertainers as they signed up to be partial owners of Tidal.
Since then the streaming service has pulled in over 2.5 million subscribers in the U.S. alone.
With over a half million subscribers abroad, Tidal's total of subscribers now surpasses over 3 million users.
To date Tidal has a few tiers for subscribers ranging from $9.99/month to $19.99/month for hi-fidelity lossless content.
But despite the ups and downs, stars like Beyoncé, Madonna, Kanye West, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys, and J. Cole have remain as part owners of Tidal also benefitting from the revenue earned.
According to Billboard, Kanye's streams for his project The Life of Pablo exceeded 250,000,000 streams in the first 10 days of its release.
After the project released, reports surfaced that Kanye had doubled the subscribers of Tidal.
"I believe in Tidal and what the team is doing to affect the change the music industry needs," said interim chief executive Peter Tonstad in a statement last April amid falling numbers. "We're streamlining the company and refocusing our resources to ensure the platform continues to grow, and listeners can make a connection to their favorite artists. No one else is doing this."
Of the 3 million subscribers around 1.35 million signed up for the hi-fidelity, lossless audio/video tier ($19.99), which allows users to access about 40 million songs and 130,000 videos and live streams.
Old beefs die hard. It seems like Jaz-O, Jay Z's mentor and former rap partner, is not here for letting sleeping dogs lie. Jaz-O recently tweeted something fairly obscure, suggesting he had some video of Harlem street cats robbing Jay Z.
And that's that.
Anybody know anything about this? I mean, what dudes walk around with a big ass camcorder and videotape this? It seems implausible to me, because it was so drastically different back in those days. The tweet was also, supposedly deleted afterward.
(AllHipHop News) Long Beach emcee Vince Staples is never one to hold his tongue. From his sharp lyrics on projects like Summertime '06 to his piercing statements in Time Magazine about the 90's and the "Golden Era" of Hip-Hop, Vince has a propensity to catch headlines with his barbed public statements.
Vince struck again yesterday at the SXSW Spotify stage when Vince took the time to call out Spotify for their minimal payments to artists.
Vince also made some racially charged comments to a mostly white crowd - this according to Austin, Texas music site Austin360. Below are a few quotes:
"I'm not the most polite person on stage," Vince said after performing his track "Lift Me Up," the second song on Summertime '06.
"I know you're all at SXSW like, 'Let's watch the Black people rap,'" Vince said, "it's almost like a real show,"
"Shout out to Spotify. Thank you for giving me this check to make up for what you've done to me and all my musical friends," he told fans at the SXSW concert.
"Listen to your favorite album 1000, 2000 times so everybody can get an album sale," Vince said.
A young man by the name of Rymir Satterthwaite has been claiming to be the son of Jay Z for a while. He's also been trying to force Jay Z to take a paternity test. While attempting to go forward with the paternity suit, both Satterthwaite and his mother Wanda were financially unprepared to deal with or take on the enormity of their cases. Interestingly enough, the young aspiring rapper resembles Jay Z. Satterthwaite stated he only wants to push on with it so he can get confirmation that Jay Z is his biological father. Now, there are rumors that a few friends and relatives of Rymir have said that Rymir knows who his real father is, but he enjoys the attention the lawsuit gives him. Allegedly he thinks the lawsuit will get Jay Z to pay him settlement/hush money. Sources say he brags that Beyonce must know his name because of the lawsuit. His cousin has claimed that his mother was obsessed with Jay Z back in the day, and this is why she isn't intervening. What are your thoughts?
