Dipset leader Cam'ron should consider getting into street politics. The hip-hop veteran has released a hilarious, must-watch public service announcement about getting text message curved.

A fresh clip has emerged of Killa Cam talking about the science of getting shut down by someone - digitally.

"This is a PSA about respecting the curve. If somebody hits you with 'K, I'll get back to you, I don't know, lol, you crazy,' it is all the curve and your job is to respect it. Some people try to keep going on after you give them these answers and they don't respect the curve. Now you're stepping in the dangerous territory of our friendship. If you wanna be friends with somebody and you're being curved, sometimes the curve is not permanent. Just accept it for that particular moment. A permanent curve is when you don't get even a 'K' back. And 'K' is for females, guys have to say 'OK.' Somebody who respects the curve is this man. They know they've been curved and they're figuring out their situation. Alright? Take advice, respect the curve."



Always gotta respeck the curve

A few days ago, buzz developed over a Dipset reunion going down next month in New York City.

DJ Khaled Bought Ashad The Best $100,000 B-Day Present He Can't Even Use
??
??

We The Best CEO DJ Khaled knows there's no limit to what his son Asahd can receive for his one-year birthday. The hip-hop producer has blessed his mini-me with an iced-out watch.

According to reports, Asahd received a massive $100,000 watch for his milestone born day.

Khaled's wife, Nicole Tuck, commissioned Haute Living - which also threw the birthday bash - to make a VERY nice watch for Asahd. The piece is laced with more than 600 diamonds which weigh in at 11.65 carats ... all for just over $100k. We're told the watch is a Franck Muller model in rose gold, with Asahd's name and birth date engraved on the back. It's also adult sized, and seeing as how Asahd just turned 1 ... he probably won't be ballin' out anytime soon. (TMZ)

Over the past few weeks, rap star T.I. has shared some hilarious Asahd pics.



Asahd: I need you to bring Heiress to the plane so she can come to my birthday party OG. Me: Is you out your little baby mind son? What you think this is young man? Ashad: Man watch out & get ya hand off my ride old head fo' I raise up out this stroller now. *Swipe* Me:Khaled... you here what ya son just trying to pull off over here? Khaled: Well we teach him impossible is nothing over here. Ain't that how you raise your sons? *Swipe* Me: Yeeeeeah U Right Bruh!!!!!

A post shared by TIP (@troubleman31) on Oct 14, 2017 at 8:46pm PDT




@asahdkhaled : So who handles Heiress' calendar? Me: That would be me & her 4 Big Brothers young man why do you ask? @asahdkhaled: Nevermind.... Put me down old head. Lol

A post shared by TIP (@troubleman31) on Sep 18, 2017 at 11:15am PDT


Over the summer, DJ Khaled credited Asahd for helping him overcome a 10-year fear of flying.

"I haven't flown in 10 years. 10 years. I haven't flown in 10 years. That's the only thing I had fear of flying. Asahd made me overcome my fear of flying. I love you."



GOD AND @asahdkhaled GOT ME !

A post shared by DJ KHALED (@djkhaled) on Aug 22, 2017 at 8:04pm PDT


In July, Young Money's Nicki Minaj rubbed elbows with Asahd.



Omg @asahdkhaled just stopped by to drop off my platinum plaque for #DoYouMind - this made my night. I'm so obsessed with him. Cuteness overload, I can't take it!!! @djkhaled

Blue Ivy Shows Where She Gets Her Dance Moves From (& It's Not JAY-Z)
In late August, JAY-Z provided insight on naming their recently born twins Rumi and Sir Carter.
"Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter," the "Smile" rapper, 47, said during the second part of his interview with Rap Radar podcast hosts Elliot Wilson and Brian "B.Dot" Miller, which was released on Friday, August 25. "And then Sir was, like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir." (Us Weekly)
In mid-July, rap star Nicki Minaj reacted to Bey's headline-generating twins pic. Earlier this year, Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy talked about giving JAY some parenting advice.
"Jay's usually the one that gives me counsel, so I was so happy to give him counsel on this. The thing that I said is that you really have to be prepared for double the love. ... You're used to getting love from one child, but when you get this incredible love from two kids and they're twins, it's truly a blessing and may God bless him and Beyoncé and the family and everybody out there that has kids-period. That's what really runs our lives, but to have twins is double the fun." ("Late Night With Seth Meyers")

Everyone's favorite celebrity kid Blue Ivy Carter does more than brush dirt off her shoulder. A new clip has gone viral of JAY-Z and Beyoncé's daughter turning up at a family member's birthday party.

The must-watch clip shows Blue flexing her dance skills to Big Sean's "Bounce Back" single.

Blue Ivy Carter has a knack for stealing the spotlight ... whether it's ballet dancing or dabbing ... and this video does not disappoint. Blue was at Solange Knowles' son's 13th birthday party over the weekend ... and when Big Sean's "Bounce Back" started blaring from the speakers the 5-year-old had no choice but to get her dab on. (TMZ)

R&B superstar Janet Jackson has the green light to hit the stage with Super Bowl LII halftime performer Justin Timberlake. The NFL has reportedly shut down rumors of banning Jackson from reuniting with Timberlake over their now-infamous boob-exposing 2004 incident.

According to a report, the National Football League could experience the same antic come February 2018.

If Justin Timberlake wants Janet Jackson in his halftime show, he can have Janet Jackson ... because there is NO official ban barring her from performing at Super Bowl 52, TMZ Sports has learned. After the nipplegate incident in 2004, Janet was seemingly blackballed by the NFL - she hasn't worked with the league since. We reached out to the league and we're told straight-up, "There's no ban." (TMZ)

Yesterday, Timberlake publicly announced he would grace the Super Bowl halftime show.

I DO have the time. Half the time...#PepsiHalftime #SBLII @Pepsi @NFL @JimmyFallon @FallonTonight pic.twitter.com/4Z4Dz29l3X

I DO have the time. Half the time... #PepsiHalftime #SBLII @Pepsi @NFL @JimmyFallon @FallonTonight

A post shared by Justin Timberlake (@justintimberlake) on Oct 22, 2017 at 5:00pm PDT


Last month, speculation developed over Timberlake possibly headlining next February's Super Bowl halftime show.

According to multiple sources, Justin Timberlake is the frontrunner to perform at next year's Super Bowl halftime show. It's hard to believe this February will mark 14 years since Timberlake's baring of Janet Jackson's right breast during halftime of Super Bowl XXXVIII at Houston's Reliant Stadium. (Variety)

A few weeks ago, the NFL addressed hype about Justin's longtime pal JAY-Z getting considered for the halftime set.

"No decisions have been made on the performer(s) and we are not going to speculate on particular artists," the NFL said in a statement on Wednesday. "Along with Pepsi, we know that we will put on a spectacular show. When it is time to announce her name we will do it. Or his name. Or their names." (Statement)

Chicago's Chance The Rapper has fired an unexpected shot at hip-hop talk show host Joe Budden. New footage has emerged of Chance name-dropping Budden during a live performance.

In the clip, Chance playfully checks Joey while rapping in front of a large crowd.



#chancetherapper takes shots at #joebudden on stage .

A post shared by DJ Akademiks (@akadmiks) on Oct 23, 2017 at 10:18am PDT


Recently, Joe Budden didn't bite his tongue when he reviewed Chance's "First World Problems."

"What the f*ck is Chance doing?" Budden exclaims during the rant. He then proceeds to call the track "Apollo rap" by suggesting because it's positive and church-themed, nobody can boo it out of respect. Budden, who brought out his "Bitter Joe" persona for the segment, proceeds to imitate Chance's style while Akademiks essentially tried to defend the song. (HHW)

A few weeks ago, Chance explained his issues with the rap veteran.

"I did a song and I was getting hit up all over the Internet because someone didn't like it, this talk show host, Joe Budden. You don't always have to have songs that everyone likes or always make music that the contemporary best or to fit in what's around. You can just make music and if you're confident enough, you'll probably get to perform it on late night." ("Robyn Neal TV")

Hollywood actress Kathy Griffin is not here for Lisa Bloom. The veteran comedienne has clapped back at every celebrity's favorite legal muscle and sparked a mini e-beef.

This week, Griffin and Bloom took to their respective social media accounts to blast one another.

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on Oct 23, 2017 at 10:33am PDT


Recently, Lisa Bloom revealed her issues with comedian Kevin Hart poking fun at a recent sex tape leak which included her client.

The spot, which started airing this week, is a slap in Montia's face ... according to her attorney, Lisa Bloom. She says both she and Montia find Kevin using the scandal "very distasteful" because Montia's enduring social media hacks, death threats and slut-shaming. Bloom says, "This stuff takes a toll mentally and physically, and now with this tour it's like this whole thing was a joke." (TMZ)

A$AP Rocky Names His No. 1 Priority & Says Don't Play Him: "Everything I Get On, I Body - I'm The Go

New York rapper A$AP Rocky is ready to end 2017 with a bang of new music. The hip-hop artist recently talked about putting together fresh audio heat.

In a GQ interview, Rocky admitted music is dominating his state of mind through the end of 2017.

"Right now, it's music," Rocky said when asked what his current priority is. "Last year was businesses and developing all our new artists. Playboi Carti went platinum. Smooky MarGielaa is on the rise. Twelvyy album came out. A$AP Ferg mixtape came out-he always got number ones and bangers. Nast, Addie, up next. Cozy Tapes Vol. 2 is out right now. Now it's all about me making music again." (GQ)

In the same Q&A, A$AP spoke up for his ability to slay collaborations.

"I can see why they think that sometimes," Rocky added when told some people may see him more focused on fashion than music. "I really wanted to take time out to show people I was an entrepreneur. I'm a businessman-you gotta take me serious. I can't help that I look good doing it. But if you just look at my catalog from this year, everything I get on, I body. I'm selective about what I get on. I'm particular. I wasn't really featuring with other artists. But this year, I'm showing n*ggas stop playing me, stop sleeping on me. I'm the god of this sh*t." (GQ)

Last month, Rocky revealed his intent to put the album out in the near future.

Recently, A$AP said fans could expect his album to drop before 2018.

"A.S.A.P. It's about to drop. [Before the year's over?] Yeah, for sure. For sure. [A.L.L.A] was ahead of its time. That was abnormal then, but in the near future, now in the present, it's going to be normal, trust me." (Complex)
