50 Cent Has One Question For "Power" Hottie La La: "Why The F**k Are [You] Looking Better & Better?"

New York rapper 50 Cent has his eyes on La La Anthony and there's nothing Carmelo can do about it. The G-Unit boss has put some respect on the "Power" actress' name.

Fif went to Instagram Sunday (June 25) to acknowledge La La's 38th birthday.

Last weekend, La La showed Carmelo Anthony some much-needed Father's Day love.



Thank you for being Kiyan's hero and a great dad. He's the luckiest boy in the world. HAPPY FATHER'S DAY @carmeloanthony

A post shared by LaLa (@lala) on Jun 18, 2017 at 10:51am PDT


In late May, buzz developed about La La hitting a roadblock in her divorce paperwork with her estranged husband.

Sources close to the ex-couple tell TMZ ... neither one is in any hurry to file divorce papers because they're happy with the way things are right now. We're told they're definitely not getting back together, but are working together to be there for their 10-year-old son. As our source puts the situation ... "Divorce isn't on the horizon." (TMZ)

Earlier the same month, Melo and La La reunited in New York City for Mother's Day.

We got the exes heading into Neta, a sushi joint in the Village, and there's nothing about the video that screams separated or bitter. Quite the contrary, both 'Melo and La La were straight-faced, but walked in together - he even held the door for her - as they entered with 10-year-old Kiyan. Afterward, the modern fam also scooped up some fro-yo. As we've reported ... both are committed to co-parenting Kiya through the split. Neither has filed divorce docs yet, but our sources say that's a certainty. (TMZ)

Nicki Minaj Puts Some Respeck On Her Own Name: "I Became The Most Awarded Female Rapper In History"

Young Money's Nicki Minaj wants fans and critics alike to pay close attention. The hip-hop diva has flexed her accomplishments since the start of 2017.

This weekend, the self-proclaimed Barbie hopped on Instagram to show off her mind-boggling music stats.


Hours prior, Nicki also made sure to show off her impact on the biggest music charts.


Recent reports claimed the rap star's #NickiMinajChallenge video series padded her numbers.

Nicki Minaj leaps 39-13 on the Social 50 chart dated July 1, and it's mostly thanks to her new namesake challenge. The Social 50 is powered by data tracked by music analytics company Next Big Sound and ranks the most popular artists on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Wikipedia, Instagram and Tumblr. The chart's methodology blends weekly additions of friends/fans/followers along with artist page views and engagement. The chart's latest tracking week ended June 15. (Billboard)

Music producer London On Da Track recently revealed he had new music on deck with Nicki.

"We definitely working. We got a lot of good news on the way. I'm not going to put too much on that either. The answer to that is good news. ... [Studio working with Nicki?] It's very comfortable. She's very straight-forward. I didn't see a flaw in her. We kind of just kicked off and vibed to the music. She's a very genuine woman. It worked out real good, and got a lot coming." (Billboard)

Lil' Kim Targeted By Cops, Queen BET Awards Robbery Suspect?
Screen Shot 2017-02-06 at 12.34.32 PM
Screen Shot 2017-02-06 at 12.34.39 PM

New York rapper Lil' Kim has some serious explaining to do. New reports claim her entourage allegedly robbed a woman over a BET Awards situation.

According to gossip buzz, Kim's camp robbed an unnamed person for not getting deposited money back after not liking a Los Angeles crib.

We're told Kim and her crew also left, but at 4 AM, a group of people showed up at the house with ski masks and weapons and got what they were after ... Kim's deposit check and cash, totaling at least $20k. Law enforcement sources say the robbers weren't done ... they also slashed all of the victim's tires and stole a hubcap. The LAPD has launched a robbery investigation. (TMZ)

Recently, reports surfaced about Kim having nearly a $2 million New Jersey mansion woe.

According to court papers, the rapper owes $1.9 million, including interest and taxes. Now that Lil Kim has been found in default, the home will hit the auction block. Foreclosure auctions are often delayed, and Lil Kim has until 10 days after the auction to come up with the funds to reclaim the house. If not, she has 30 days to vacate. (NJ.com)

Back in February, Kim revealed plans to hit up Los Angeles to work on new music.

Power Recap - In My Best Interest - Season 3, Episode 10
screen-shot-2016-09-25-at-9-37-39-pm
screen-shot-2016-09-25-at-9-38-10-pm

To appreciate the brilliance of Power's season three finale, you need to see EVERY episode. [1 - 9] This is not the episode to start watching Power. This episode takes us into season 4 which has already started production.

In this episode, Greg figures out that Mike is the mole and Angela screws Jamie one last time.

The Feds find the dead body of Ruiz. Greg searches the body and finds the wire that Ruiz was wearing when he met with Milan. Jamie, parked not too far from the scene, calls Angela to see if she knows anything. Angela is clueless.

Milan overhears that Jamie is about to close the deal with the Bassetts. While meeting with Tommy, Milan disrespects Petar which Tommy makes note of. Milan explains Jamie will be killed after he signs the paperwork with the Bassetts. Tommy is expected to deliver the final shot to Jamie.

Jamie breaks into Greg's apartment to see what evidence Greg could have against him. While searching the apartment, Jamie finds Angela's undergarments on the bed which upsets him. As Jamie leaves the apartment, he gets distracted, leaving behind evidence.

Prior to his death, Lobos warned Tommy and Ghost they were getting sloppy.

POWER TRIPPING

Greg meets up with his mentor and they review the audio Ruiz recorded. The audio indicates that Tommy and Ghost killed Lobos, however the audio will not stand in court. Greg pulls Jamie over in a routine traffic stop and attempts to get him to roll over on Angela. Jamie refuses to participate. Afterwards, Greg calls Mike to discuss the Lobos murder at his apartment. Greg tells Mike that he is confident that Angela is the leak until he gets a phone call from the Mexican Federal Police. Greg takes the call in private and suddenly has second doubts about Angela being the leak. Greg starts to realize that Mike is the mole. Mike comes clean and tries to persuade Greg to frame Angela to regain his reputation. Greg declines. Mike kills Greg and plants his phone in the apartment.

Let's keep it one hundred. Greg was stupid for trying to convince Mike to turn himself. What was he thinking?

.

Jamie tells Tasha that Tommy is changing and he's concerned. During his speech, he slips about "he helped him with Holly" which raises a red flag.

Tommy meets up with Petar and questions his allegiance to Milan. Tommy questions if Petar can be trusted and be part of his plan.

MJ from Internal Affairs meets with the Feds and names Greg Knox as the mole for Lobos. No one believes it, including Double Agent Mike. The IA also mentioned that there was "no signs of forced entry, unless he left the window open." Angela mentions that Greg never left his windows open.

Tasha tells Tommy that Jamie can never know she told him about Ruiz. Tommy tells Tasha he has a plan to get out from under Milan. Finally Tasha wants to know more about Holly's whereabouts, which Tommy dismisses and tells her to "stick to the plan."

Tommy tells Tasha "it's handled!" Who does he think he is? Olivia Pope. LOL

Angela questions Jamie about his whereabouts when Greg was killed [but she doesn't say Greg was killed]. Jamie tells Angela that Greg pulled him over and that he would do 'anything' to protect her. Angela tells Jamie now that the Lobos case is closed, she no longer wants anything to do with him.

Kanan Slim gives Tariq a package to deliever to his boy Ray-Ray. Tariq delivers the package to him. The package is a bag of guns and Ray Ray is an undercover cop who arrests Tariq. Ray Ray places Tariq in the squad car where Officer Jukebox is waiting. Jukebox plays the role of a police officer, tries to get Tariq to roll on who gave him the package. When Tariq refuses to snitch, the squad car pulls off. Suddenly, Kanan hops in the squad car and reveals this was a test to see if Tariq was a 'G.'

Kanan calling Tariq a G is a double entendre. 'G' as in gangster or Ghost.

Angela returns to Greg's apartment and finds fingerprints on the window that Greg never leaves open.

Jukebox, Ray Ray and Kanan return to the apartment with Tariq. Jukebox questions how rich Jamie is. Jukebox convinces Kanan that he is thinking small-time and should kidnap and ransom Tariq. "You get Ghost's money and kill his kid. Flawless victory."

Jukebox makes a reference to Disney's The Lion King. In real life, Jukebox is the voice of Tiana from The Princess and The Frog, another Disney movie.

Jamie throws a party at Truth to impress The Bassettes and to earn their business. Dre sneaks his boys into the club and warns them not to deviate from the plan. Milan sees Jamie sign the contract with The Bassettes which means it's time to kill Jamie. Jamie puts a gun in Milan's side and instructs him to look around the club. Each one of his men has been taken down by Dre's boys. Milan motions to Tatiana to help him, until Tasha puts a gun in her side as well. Milan is led downstairs and met by Tommy. Milan is driven to his warehouse and killed by Tommy and Ghost - together.

Jamie goes back to the club while Tommy confers with his new partner, Perta. Tommy's plan is to continue selling drugs in Jamie's clubs despite what Jamie thinks.

Tasha comes home and Tariq isn't there. Raina (Tariq's sister) indicates that Tariq is hanging out with his new friend Slim, who is a friend from their old neighborhood. This alerts Tasha who calls Tariq. Moments later, Tasha receives a picture of a passed out Tariq being held by a burnt arm and a message that reads, "If you want him back, you're gonna have to pay."

POWER OUTAGE
The Truth party is going great until Angela arrests Jamie in the club for the murder of Special Ageny Gregory Knox.

POWER COMMENTS
Wow. What an episode. What did you think? Was it everything you expected? What do you think is going to happen in Season 4 of Power? Will Michael Rainy Jr. (Tariq) outgrow Omari Hardwick (Jamie)?

DJ Self Clears Up Huge Meek Mill/Safaree Beef Rumor: "I Have To Address This"

Hip-hop personality DJ Self is clearing the air. The popular deejay has weighed-in on rumors of having major involvement in the overnight Meek Mill and Safaree Samuels altercation.

Self went Instagram last night (June 24) to remove himself from the mounted speculation.

"I don't really like to do things like this because I feel like this is corny. But to protect my name and my brand, I feel like I have to address this. Alright, now there was an issue that happened yesterday and both parties are friends of mine. I rock with both of them and I do not like to get in-between people's beef. If I do, I like to squash it as opposed to provoke it. Now it was no way, no how I could ever line somebody up or set somebody up. So it was impossible for me to do that because I didn't know either party was going to be there when I got there - if you watch the video, I was trying to mediate the situation. Hopefully these two brothers can get together and work it out. If they can't, at least coexist with each other. I just want the people to know I would never ever do anything."



The internet is undefeated. smh neva would I set up - line a man. I wish we all can make great music. We all was in a place at the wrong time. Let's make great music. Please stop listening to silly rumors. ...... watch the blogs don't post this, But promote the fuckery

Earlier this month, Eminem popped up at a Michigan high school graduation and blessed students with Beats By Dre headphones.

"What's up Class of 2017? This is Eminem. I just want to say congratulations to the graduating seniors of Flint Northwestern, Flint Southwestern and Flint Accelerated Learning Academy," blared the rapper's voice. "Congrats to all your guys' hard work, man. You earned this moment." After Eminem's acknowledgment, the graduates all learned they wouldn't just be receiving their diplomas. The rapper's foundation would also help provide a new set of Beats by Dre headphones to each graduate. (M Live)



In early June, Em revealed some must-have The Eminem Show 15th anniversary bundles.

Game's Still Ready To Whoop Meek Mill's Azz

West Coast rapper Game's still ready to throw down on Meek Mill. The hip-hop veteran has expressed an interest to see his rap rival in-person for an easy, breezy azz-whooping.

A screenshot has surfaced of Game responding to an Instagram user egging him on about Meek.

A few hours ago, Meek's rival Safaree Samuels accused him of having goons sent his way.

Meek Milly has since come forward to deny any involvement in the Safaree attack.


Last year, Safaree said Meek allegedly sparked his split from rap star Nicki Minaj.

When asked about this, SB revealed that The Game was onto something with that post. "[Meek] definitely was a big part as to why me and Nicki broke up," he admitted. As far as the beef goes, Samuels says "The Game is a beast." He adds: "'Pest Control' was one of the craziest diss records of all time in diss history. There's nothing to make of it. It's not even on no bias sh*t." (Rap-Up)
