As TMZ reported - Ciara sued Future for $15 million back in February for calling her a bad mom. Future countersued but he's just had a change of heart, asking the judge to dismiss his case against her. Sources close to the rapper tell us he wants to calm the waters after scoring joint custody of baby Future. (TMZ)
Sources connected to the former couple say Ciara showed up in court asking for sole custody of their 1-year-old son, baby Future. She claimed Future was a bad parent who was not present in the child's life. We're told she and her lawyer also trash talked Future to the judge, saying he was a bad person. For his part, Future showed up and asked for joint custody, and the judge was squarely on his side, rejecting her arguments. (TMZ)
As you know, Ciara sued Future for $15 million for publicly trashing her and he filed a countersuit. According to sources, things are still very much in-progress - but whatever went down today led to Future deleting the tweets that started it all. Interestingly enough, deleting those tweets is part of what Ciara wanted in the first place. (Love B Scott)
Clarksville, TN up-and-comer Case Arnold departs from his usual wavy fare with today's offering, "Noise," but the result is no less catchy.
Paired with Atlanta artist-on-the-rise Zach Farlow, Case checks those trying to get on for their exaggerated accomplishments. Free P's infectious track provides the perfect background for these two to ride over and the end result is a song that will keep heads bobbing through the summer.
Hustle Gang leader T.I. recently put together a massive casting call for strippers to take over his new V Live gentlemen's club.
According to reports, Tip and his business partner put together an adult job fair for stripper hopefuls.
The rapper and his partner, Damon Cobbs, are launching a V Live in Atlanta later this month, so they held a job fair - of sorts - a few days ago. Recruiters were looking at several criteria beyond dancing skills. We're told a well-rounded butt, toned body and tight abs put most candidates over the top, and of course ... great personality was a must. (TMZ)
Outside of stripper auditions, T.I. recently spoke to SOHH about partnering up with rap mogul Jay Z's TIDAL streaming service.
"I think it's already distanced itself from the other platforms simply because we have more unique usages. There are things that you can come to TIDAL for that you can't go to the other two services and get. There are things that you can get on the TIDAL platform that you cannot get anywhere else." (SOHH)
"It exceeds exclusive music. Although it includes exclusive music, I don't know anywhere else where you can go and get something that's comparable to the TIDAL X performances or concert series. I don't know of another platform where you can go get that. I don't know of another platform where you could go get exclusive content like "Money & Violence" that has a cult following and dynamic feel of the culture and the community. I think it's diverse in a way that sets itself apart from many of the other considerable mentions in this league." (SOHH)

According to reports, Rocko believes he has Future on the hook for breaching a 2011 contract where he promised to release his first six albums through his A1 Recordings.
Rocko says Epic Records signed on to distribute the albums, but then things got tricky. In the suit, he says Future cut a side deal with Epic, which scored him huge multi-million dollar advances. Rocko says he was left out in the cold because Future stiffed him to the tune of 25% - the commission he's owed off those fat Epic advances. In addition, he says he's owed 20% of Future's earnings from touring, endorsements, etc ... (TMZ)
"Once we arrived at Summer Jam, there apparently was a riot that broke out in a section during another set. We were told that the station was forced by the city and the venue to cut us from the show. The festival organizers came to Future's dressing room and personally asked him to leave immediately. ... Future was crushed by the request but was told it was in the best interest and for everyone's safety that he leave. We couldn't be more disappointed but we promise our fans that in spite of the rocky start, we will do everything in our power to make this summer one for the history books!!! #SummerSixteen" (Billboard)
