Following the Soul Train Awards in 1997, artists and industry leaders came together at Vibe's afterparty at the side in L.A. That get-together was shut down early because of over-crowding, so many of the partygoers, including Notorious BIG and his crew, made their way out to their awaiting vehicles.
A little before 1:00 a.m. as he sat at a red light in the passenger seat of a GMC Suburban, Biggie was shot and killed by unknown assailants. Of the four bullets that hit him, only one was fatal. Jermaine Dupri has a vivid memory when it comes to that fateful evening because, according to him, he almost got into Biggie's truck that night.
"Everybody was there, it was like a party," Dupri told PEOPLE. "Everybody was at this afterparty in L.A. and me and Big we just had a great relationship so we was just talking before the party was over. He was talking about going to this Outkast party. One thing that Big...once you was his friend, he was just looking out for you, always. We came outside [and] his truck pulled up. My truck was still, I was still waiting for my truck and he didn't want me to stand outside and wait 'til my car came. He wasn't gon' leave me just standing out there, so he was like jump in. As I was getting in, my truck pulled up. So it's like that, that moment...it could've been, wow."
He said the near-miss of being the vehicle didn't bother him, but the loss of his friend tore him up. "Biggie leaving was like, crushing to me, though," he stated. "Somebody so talented, such a great heart. Just to see that happen to them through this music situation. It's crazy." He added, "It happened so fast. 'Cause even when the information came, I was pulling up to the Outkast party and somebody called me and was like, 'Biggie got...' I'm like, no way. That can't be." 
Ominously, Dupri ended the story by saying, "I do know what business I'm in, and I do know that this business has a dark side."

North Carolina artists Stunna 4 Vegas and DaBaby have joined forces on their single "Ashley." The track comes from Stunna's May release Big 4x, Stunna's debut Billion Dollar Baby Entertainment record. The two have been collaborating for quite some time as Stunna admitted that before he inked a deal with DaBaby, he was reaching out to the "Goin Baby" rapper to pay him for a verse. The two collaborated and their song "Animal" was a hit, so the pair have been working together ever since.
On "Ashley," the two trade verses—three each—making for a nearly-five minute song with no chorus. The music video is inspired by The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and features the two rappers dressed in their best '90s attire as they throw a backyard, mansion house-party. Judging by the 'fits, Stunna plays the part of Will while DaBaby rocks more of a Carlton look. Check it out and let us know what you think.

It's been an interesting last few weeks for Apryl Jones. First, she was captured in photos laying in bed next to Fizz from B2K, the same group that includes Omarion, the father of Apryl's two children. Then, Moniece Slaughter, Fizz's ex and mother of his son, came forward with allegations that Fizz and Apryl are not only in a relationship, but they're living together and she's pregnant. Later, a video went viral showing Apryl bragging about all the men in the industry who are trying to sleep with her including The Game, A$AP Rocky, Kevin Durant, Paul Pierce, Shaquille O'Neal, and Fizz.
Apryl will even make an appearance on the next episode of Black Ink Chicago where she states that she and Ryan Henry haven't sex..."yet." Now that VH1 is setting the stages for their upcoming season of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, they've roped Apryl in for a sit-down interview where she, once again, gets candid about...well...everything.

The reality star says that her return to LHHH will show a different side of her because during her first go-round she was in a relationship with Omarion and pregnant. She shared that she couldn't have a good time with the others on the show, so she's hoping to reveal more of her true self. She had no problem talking about her relationship with Fizz, who she calls by his real first name, Dreux.
"My relationship with Dreux, he's someone who I've considered to be an angel sent into my life," she said. "I've known him for some years, but we've definitely gotten closer over the past two to three years. He has been there through the course of the sh*t that I deal with with the father of my kids, just helping me in that aspect. I'm a single mom. I have no family in L.A. and it's awesome to have a friend who chooses to do what's right, to be there and support his friend, to make sure that I am healthy mentally. Honestly, he's just an angel sent into my life and I'm just truly honestly grateful for him."
As far as her relationship with Omarion is concerned, Apryl matter-of-factly stated that there isn't one. She admitted that they are having difficulty co-parenting and the way they are now is the worst it has ever been. However, just because she and Omarion are on the outs doesn't mean she's hooked up with Fizz. According to Apryl, they're just friends. 
"I have fallen in love with best friends before," Apryl said. "I'm not opposed to...like I wouldn't or couldn't fall in love with him. But I think where we are is where we are." She claimed that both she and Fizz are messed up from their past relationships, but if they did want to enter into something serious, they would probably go to therapy first. They have talked about their feelings for one another, but they want to go about it the right way.
She also isn't opposed to sleeping with him, either. "A b*tch needs some d*ck and I'd rather give it to a person that's my friend as opposed to someone who is just a guy that I'm knowing. He's deserving of the p*ssy. Let's just be really honest. Dreaux is definitely deserving of the p*ssy. If I decide to give it to him one day I would be proud of that because I have given guys my vagina that don't deserve it."
Moniece wasted no time responding to the video by commenting, "Finally. The truth. The truth I can respect. The involuntary lying to my face is what will turn me back into the old me. Cuz see a blatant lie, is worse than saying nothing at all, especially when I didn’t ask. The lie is also an insult to my intelligence." 
View this post on InstagramApryl Jones is no stranger to the LA scene, but she is BACK and ready to live her best life...with a special friend. 👀 Are you happy to see her return to the show? #LHHH premieres MONDAY AUGUST 5 at 8/7c on @VH1 😱

He let the world know that his latest project is completed, so all fans can do is wait on A$AP Ferg to drop his forthcoming album, Floor Seats. To continue the hype surrounding the record's release, Ferg dropped a new single of the same name with an accompanying visual. In the music video, Ferg and his crew grab their bikes and roll through the streets of New York before linking up with a few other members of their entourage at a house party.
Last month, Ferg chatted with Zane Lowe for Beats 1 and shared what listeners can expect from Floor Seats. "It's the floor seats to my life," he said. "A lot of people, they see artists and famous people sitting on the floor, but they don't know what it's like, they don't know what the VIP access is like, and that's what I'm giving people on this album, is the VIP access to my life."
Quotable Lyrics
Hit the 'Gram wit a pic
Whole computer catch a glitch

Rapping husband and wife duo Offset and Cardi B's collaboration "Clout" quickly became a hit, but not everyone has a firm grasp on what the pair are spitting bars about. The track is featured on Offset's debut solo record Father of 4, a project that showed the Migos rapper could stand on his own. 
While "old heads" are often the targets of criticisms over their objections of new artists and music, Jimmy Kimmel is hoping that he can bridge the gap between old school and new school. Offset and Cardi were guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and thanks to another edition of  New Lyrics for Old People, everyone has a better insight into what Offset and Cardi were saying.
"Straight out the streets to a penthouse, Miami Beach, yayo," the rapper said to which Kimmel translated, "I came from humble beginnings and now I own a condominium in Florida...yayo." Then Offset rapped, "Swapping out cars with my b*tch, I bought her the Lambo she bought me the Wraith." Cardi said, "That's me," while pointing to herself and smiling. Kimmel translated, "That means, uh, his wife and I exchanged cars and jewelry, is that correct?" Cardi enthusiastically nodded.
The next line was, "Get the wealth, put it up for my seeds, no cure for the IG disease." Kimmel said, "Seeds are kids, right. So, I'm saving my money for my children and I love Instagram. A lot." Cardi got a few lines in of her own. "I say, 'Whole lotta people need to hear this, it's a lotta names on my hit list." Kimmel said, "Ok, that means everyone listen closely because I'm upset with a lot of you." 
Things got a tad awkward when she spit her rhyme, "P*ssy still wet like a big b*tch." Unfortunately, Kimmel didn't translate that one correctly so Cardi had to divvy up an explanation. Check out the enter translation experience below.

While there are folks out there wondering whether the City Boys or the Hot Girls are having a better summer, Stevie J. and Faith Evans are living their best lives on vacation. The couple has recently been on the receiving end of break up rumors after social media sleuths claimed that the pair unfollowed each other on Instagram. However, the husband and wife assured reporters that their marriage was just fine as they were spotted recently at ESSENCE Fest.
The unlikely pair shocked fans when it came to light that they married on a whim in Las Vegas. Stevie was a producer for Bad Boy Records and worked on a number of tracks for Faith's late ex-husband, Notorious B.I.G. Stevie and Faith have weathered the storms of accusations that Stevie, who has developed a reputation as a reality television playboy, couldn't remain faithful, but it looks as if Faith has set him on the right path.
"Happy Anniversary FRJ ⚜️ Truth is - the one you love is always near, you’ll never know," Stevie wrote in an Instagram post. "Just love each friend or loved one wholeheartedly & unconditionally. The universe hand delivered My Angel, supremely honored. This life of yours hasn’t been easy though you carried your cross without complaints now lay all of your cares on my shoulders, please. Amen."
Meanwhile, Stevie continues to battle it out in court with his ex and former Love & Hip Hop Atlanta co-star Joseline Hernandez over their daughter Bonnie Bella.

It's a sad day for She's Gotta Have It fans as it is reported that Netflix has canceled the show after only two seasons. Spike Lee's remake of his cult classic film of the same name follows the story of Lee's 1986 original as it chronicled the polyamorous, artistic life of Nola Darling as she navigates through self-discovery, art, love, and unconventional relationships. DeWanda Wise starred as the principal character and acted alongside Ilfenesh Hadera, Anthony Ramos, Lyric Bent, Chyna Layne, Cleo Anthony, and Fat Joe. 
Ted Sarandos, the Chief Content Officer at Netflix issued a statement about the cancelation by saying, “Spike Lee is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and we’re thrilled he brought the series She’s Gotta Have It(1986, based on his first feature film) to Netflix. While this is our last season, we’re very proud that it will be on our service for years to come, and excited to be working with Spike on his upcoming Netflix film Da 5 Bloods.”

Lee's forthcoming Netflix film is reportedly about a group of friends who are also Vietnam War veterans. They return to the places where they faced tragedies in battle as they hunt for both the remains of a friend they lost in the war along with buried treasure. The film stars Giancarlo Esposito (who also worked with Lee on Do the Right Thing), Delroy Lindo (who worked with Lee on Malcolm X, Crooklyn, & Clockers), Clarke Peters (who worked with Lee on Red Hook Summer), and Isiah Whitlock Jr. (who worked with Lee on She Hate Me, 25th Hour, Red Hook Summer, Chi-Raq and BlacKkKlansman).

It's been a difficult road for Lamar Odom. He's battled trauma, pain, abuse, addictions, a near-death experience, and recovery. He is now facing a life without basketball, something that is counted as yet another loss, as it was recently announced that he's been deactivated from the BIG3 League. The former Los Angeles Lakers star shared his disappointment with the league's decision on Instagram, but he made it clear that he's walking away from his brief experience with a positive outlook.
Days later, the Darkness To Light best-selling author decided to be transparent with his 473,000 followers on IG in hopes of inspiring them with his story. "We think we live, but many of us we really don’t; we are on auto pilot," Odom wrote. "We are not even aware of this until conflict knocks down our doors. These moments or periods make us reflect back on ourselves. Who is really in control of my life? Me or my past? Have I become everything I hated? My beautiful escape from the pain of life has always been basketball. The first thing I did when I heard that my Mom passed away, was run to my childhood court in Lincoln park and escape there. Being deactivated from the Big 3 has made me realize that I can no longer depend on basketball to find emotional relief from the inevitable hurdles of life. I've made a decision to stop this time, reflect for real and not run away or escape - not into basketball or anything else."
Odom said that in this time, he's dedicated to rebuilding his relationships with his children because he doesn't want them to inherit his dysfunctions and traumas. "Together with my daughter Destiny and the mother of my children, Liza Morales, I am going to use this opportunity to connect to my children and break the cycle of my past," he wrote. "All three of us have been through extreme difficulties, individually and as a family, that we have not spoken about."
He also announced that he's partnered with MicDrop, a motivational public speaking firm that helps people heal through effective communication. The company shared a promo video starring Odom that begins with them asking if the sports star is happy. He responds by telling them no. When they ask why not, he quickly states that there are many reasons, none of which he wanted to talk about. Check it out below.

Someone unleashed the Teyana Taylor's' inner beast and she didn't care who witnessed it. Taylor was at an event minding her business when she got into a confrontation with members of Floyd Mayweather's The Money Team. A witness captured the moment on camera and viewers can see that whatever went down was serious because Taylor was squared up and ready. Another man attempted to quell the situation by standing in front of Taylor, but she made sure that her grievances were heard.
According to The Shade Room, Taylor asked one of the men from TMT a question, but instead of answering, he responded disrespectfully and called her out of her name. This angered the singer and she went off on him. After the social media outlet shared the Snapchat clip, Taylor jumped in the comments to clarify that she wasn't acting out of character over something insignificant.
"A persons tone can be at level 1 but DISRESPECT can be at level 100," she wrote. "Trust & believe if I’m going off on someone it’s w/ very good reasoning. I will not tolerate any disrespect from anyone, idc who the hell he work for." Snoop Dogg can be seen in the video clip standinig nearby, but he didn't seem to want to get involved in the altercation. He did, however, also share his thoughts on the situation in the video's comments.
"She from Harlem. Don’t. Play with my niece 💙💙," he wrote. Lil Duval said that this behavior isn't anything new. "That’s normal everyday teyana 😂😂😂😂😂," he joked.
