A few days ago, fellow West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle said B's East Coast ties made her unable to fully understand the Bloods/Crips West culture.
“She’s from New York. There’s a different reality to gang banging on the East Coast than there is in L.A. This is a 30-40 year culture out here. People died in the ’80s. Uncles and homies got killed behind this thing. So there’s a different level of sensitivity. ... The disrespect happens when you go public and you not in the privacy of your hood or your homies." (Big Boy TV)

West Coast rapper Game doesn't want Cardi B to have to watch her back. The hip-hop veteran has revealed a personal conversation he had with her over now-infamous drama she generated over a Bloods/Crips-related social media post.

This past weekend, Game dished on talking to the rap star and said they ironed things out. The Los Angeles native also said anyone upset at Cardi could rest assured she didn't mean any disrespect toward the Crips.

"That's dangerous sh*t but I talked to Cardi and she understands the politics of LA and she's still who she is, that's to be respected. But there's a position here that has to be respected. But all in all, Cardi came through, had a good time - I didn't help to diffuse sh*t, everybody who they are. ... I like Cardi B, I like her music, I like what she stands for. She represents who I am and where I come from and everybody that's overly tripping just needs to chill. She's a good girl, we hollered about it, she ain't mean nothing." (TMZ)

(Big Boy TV)





Earlier this month, reports surfaced about Cardi catching heat and gang threats over a Crip-related Instagram post.

On Monday, Cardi put up a shot of herself rocking a blue fur coat in Minneapolis. Her caption said, "I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin." It's that word "Flue" that has her in serious hot water - it's a way to knock Crips favorite color, blue, without using the actual word. Cardi's publicly stated she is a Blood, so the post - which has more than a million likes - pissed off the rival Crips, who not only left angry comments ... some flat-out threatened her. The rapper's scheduled to come to L.A. for NBA All-Star festivities in about 10 days ... and her new enemies know it. One comment said, "@iamcardib this will not be accepted #DONTCOMETOLA." (TMZ)

Subsequently, Cardi has edited the pic to make it captionless and banned commenting.

Hollywood actress Karrueche Tran has social media scratching its heads. The 29-year-old entertainer has low-key and high-key hit up a couple male celebrities with some thirsty-looking public messages.

This past weekend, KT sparked the Internet's attention by going at both Migos' Quavo and Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan.

— Urano Metria (@ItsChibuike_) February 18, 2018

However, some media outlets have suggested the tweets may have a connection to MTV show "Safeword."

Looking back at the previous guests on Safeword and the dangerous tweets they were forced to send out, it's pretty easy to see the similarities. For instance, Amber Rose had to send out a tweet at Beyoncé, where she claimed to be "Becky with the short hair," and another that called Tyga's music "trash." On another episode, Young M.A was forced to tweet disparaging comments at Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill. (HNHH)



Karrueche has since come forward to explain the backstory behind her jaw-dropping comments.

@MTVSafeWord hacked my accounts.
I swear none of that stuff that was posted was me. It was @mtvsafeword!

— Karrueche Tran (@karrueche) February 18, 2018

A few days ago, cameras spotted Karrueche and rumored boyfriend NFL free agent Victor Cruz looking more than comfy with one another.

Hollywood superstar Michael B. Jordan is loving those Black Panther opening weekend numbers. Everyone's favorite on-screen bad guy has reacted to the box office sales his Marvel Studios flick has generated after just 72 hours.

In a new Instagram Story clip, Jordan speaks on the massive Black Panther ticket sales and positive results of people hitting their local theaters.

"218 [million dollars]. Woo. See what happens when we support each other? Ain't nothing we can't do. You show up, you show out. You see what happens? It's crazy. It's just the beginning though. Let the movement continue."

After just a few days, Black Panther has already banked nearly $200 million in ticket sales.

The epic box-office debut of “Black Panther,” the first Marvel superhero movie with an African-American in the title role, will force Hollywood to reassess the work it gives black actors and filmmakers and lead to better roles for minorities and women. The movie from Walt Disney Co.’s superhero factory opened with estimated weekend sales of $192 million, ComScore Inc. said Sunday in an email, setting a record for a February opening and likely becoming the biggest movie ever starring a largely black cast. Analysts were forecasting about as much as $185 million for Friday through Sunday. (Fortune)

Some publications estimate Black Panther will make $218 million by tonight and easily bank the money it cost to create the film.

That number means that “Black Panther,” starring Chadwick Boseman and directed by Ryan Coogler, has doubled its original tracking in less than a month. The film, which carries an estimated $200 million production cost, had been tracking to bring in between an impressive $100 and $120 million when first estimates emerged on Jan. 25. Since then, “Black Panther” has become a must-see movie for many moviegoers, underlined when Thursday previews brought in $25.2 million, the largest Thursday night preview gross for a February opener and the second-largest preview gross for a Marvel film.

A few days ago, Kylie Jenner shocked the Internet by sharing a pic of her new baby and sharing the mystery girl's name.

Earlier the same week, her sister Kim Kardashian gushed over Kylie and her boyfriend Travis Scott's newborn baby.
Mommy Kylie!!! You did it!!! I'm so incredibly proud of the woman you have grown up to be and I know that you are going to be the best mom to your new baby girl!

I am so proud that you do what you want to do and live your life the way you want, you will pass down all of those amazing qualities to your baby girl. You were made to be a mom! I love you! (Kim Kardashian West)

Texas rapper Travis Scott might not like paparazzi but that didn't stop him from low-key dishing on his daughter's beauty. The Houston native gave a few words on the arrival of his mini-me Stormi Webster.

This past weekend, paps pulled up on Scott and tried to get him to cave in about Kylie Jenner's baby girl.

"She's beautiful," Scott told paparazzi when asked how his baby is." (TMZ)

Migos' Offset doesn't need Valentine's Day to arrive in order to bless his fiancée with overwhelming presents. The hip-hop star went the extra mile to remind Cardi B just how much he loves her this past weekend.

Cardi hopped on Instagram Sunday (February 18) to show a massive stuffed teddy bear gift from Off.

Earlier the same week, a report went viral about B possibly having a bun in the oven based on her actions at a Super Bowl LII Maxim party.

At that event there were 2 VIP areas ... one at the side of the stage that was reserved for talent and football players, and the other in the back of the venue which was reserved specifically for Cardi and her entourage. Our sources say after Cardi performed, a venue staffer asked her team if they could escort her back to her VIP room, where alcohol was flowing. One of Cardi's reps then said she didn't want to be in a "party atmosphere" and preferred to stay in the area by the stage and drink Fiji water. The rep then told the staffer Cardi was 3 to 4 months pregnant. (TMZ)

In a recent interview, Hollywood actress Jennifer "J. Lo" Lopez announced she has a new song called "Dinero" with Cardi coming out.

And as far as those rumors about her collaborating with Cardi B, she says they’re all true! “I feel like you already know that I collaborated with Cardi B,” she said laughing. “I do have a record coming out with her and it’s coming out soon. The name of the song is 'Dinero.' I don’t know what the video is going to be yet but we’ll see what we come up with.” (Latina)

Music mogul Diddy is 100 percent here for the Migos entertainment biz takeover. The hip-hop icon has saluted the trio on their recent successes from a chart-topping Culture II album release to highlighting this past NBA All-Star Weekend festivities.

Puff Daddy went to Instagram Monday (February 19) to give Quavo, Offset and Takeoff the ultimate salutes.

Last night, the Migos and rap-rock group N.E.R.D. performed for the NBA All-Star halftime show.



The hip-hop group's Culture II has reached a billion streams faster than any other music act.

During the All-Star tipoff event on the Capitol lot, Quality Control/Motown/Capitol's Migos (whose "Stir Fry" is practically the NBA theme song) receive a plaque commemorating their unreal streaming numbers. The trio got to 1 billion streams faster than any group ever with Culture II, causing Steve Barnett to become so giddy he could barely execute his turnaround jump shot. Still: Nothin' but net. (HITS Daily Double)

In a new interview, Migos' Offset and Quavo talked about coming up short at the recent Grammy Awards show.

Speaking to NME in this week’s magazine, Offset said: “They cheated us.” “There was nothing bigger than the f*cking ‘Culture’ album this whole last year,” Quavo asserted. “They’re scared to handle the three-headed monster… Ooh! [But] we’ll be back next year… WE’LL BE F*CKING BACK NEXT YEAR.” (NME)

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West's Christmas presents for Kim Kardashian have really paid off this month. New reports claim Ye's $100,000 purchase of stock in giant companies like Amazon and Adidas for Kim have fattened her wallet.

According to a new report, Kanye's $100,000 gamble in four major brands has already made Kim $36,000 richer.

As we reported, Ye hooked up his wife for Xmas with $100k of stock from 4 blue-chip companies - Amazon, Apple, Disney and Adidas ... along with some more traditional stocking stuffers. Since Kim scored the gifts, 2 of the 4 stocks - Amazon and Adidas - have continued to surge, and are up about $24k and $11k respectively. Disney is down almost $2k and Apple's dipped a bit as well. All in all ... Kim's $400k portfolio is currently valued at $431,800 as of Friday's close. (TMZ)



Last week, Kim took the spotlight off herself and showcased her daughter North West.



My baby girl is so big now!

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Feb 16, 2018 at 2:16pm PST


A few days ago, Kanye shocked fans by deleting his Instagram page just 24 hours after returning from a major hiatus.

Mercurial mad genius Kanye West has already deleted his Instagram account again after an all-too-brief return to praise his wife Kim Kardashian (and several other high-profile celebrity couples) on Valentine’s Day. Kanye originally deleted his accounts around eight months ago while recovering from an onstage meltdown during his Saint Pablo tour. The resulting public backlash and physical exhaustion of the tour caused him to retreat from public life while earning him a lawsuit and a very angry reference on Jay-Z’s Grammy-nominated album, 4:44. (Uproxx)

Recently, Kanye spent hours putting together some of the entertainment industry's biggest current and former couples just in time for Valentine's Day.

He started with photos of Madonna and Sean Penn and Barack and Michelle Obama, and by the time he was finished, he had name-dropped Ellen DeGeneres, Sonny & Cher, John & Yoko, Dennis Rodman, David Bowie, Iman, JFK, Jackie O, Mick Jagger, Grace Jones, Serge Gainsbourg, Kid Rock, the dude from Sum 41, a fictional couple from “Sex & the City,” and so many others. The series ended, of course, with photos of West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. He’s since deactivated his account once more.) (Pitchfork)

New York rapper Cardi B can't turn a blind eye to the Florida high school shooting. The hip-hop diva has come forward to weigh-in on the trend of youth violence and offer a possible solution to end the epidemic.

In a new Instagram clip, the "Bodak Yellow" star suggested bullying is at the heart of these fatal attacks.

"I see a lot of high schoolers, middle schoolers, even elementary schoolers even though they're not supposed to be watching me - I've been seeing a lot of school shootings happening and the school shootings never look like the jock, the cheerleader, the popular kid. It's always a kid that's a little bit socially awkward and everything and I feel like one of the best ways to prevent these types of tragedies is to stop picking on these little kids. Stop bullying these kids. The devil speaks to you the most when you feel helpless. Stop picking on them. If you see this kid and you know he's a little weird or this girl, that's a little not like you, compliment them them. Say hi to them. That should feel better than picking on somebody that you know is not gonna do something to you. Like, you're mad p*ssy for even picking on somebody that you know is not gonna defend themself. Stop picking on these kids, y'all."

R&B singers Chris Brown and Alicia Keys really, really, really like Black Panther. The soulful stars have hit up social media to co-sign the box office smash hit.

Both Chris Breezy and Alicia went to their Instagram pages Sunday (February 18) to boast about the must-watch superhero movie.

After just a few days, Black Panther has already banked nearly $200 million in ticket sales.

The epic box-office debut of “Black Panther,” the first Marvel superhero movie with an African-American in the title role, will force Hollywood to reassess the work it gives black actors and filmmakers and lead to better roles for minorities and women. The movie from Walt Disney Co.’s superhero factory opened with estimated weekend sales of $192 million, ComScore Inc. said Sunday in an email, setting a record for a February opening and likely becoming the biggest movie ever starring a largely black cast. Analysts were forecasting about as much as $185 million for Friday through Sunday. (Fortune)

Some publications estimate Black Panther will make $218 million by tonight and easily bank the money it cost to create the film.

That number means that “Black Panther,” starring Chadwick Boseman and directed by Ryan Coogler, has doubled its original tracking in less than a month. The film, which carries an estimated $200 million production cost, had been tracking to bring in between an impressive $100 and $120 million when first estimates emerged on Jan. 25. Since then, “Black Panther” has become a must-see movie for many moviegoers, underlined when Thursday previews brought in $25.2 million, the largest Thursday night preview gross for a February opener and the second-largest preview gross for a Marvel film. (Variety)

Additional publications believe the Chadwick Boseman movie could make even more during this holiday weekend.

Disney is reporting Sunday estimates of $192M over three days for Black Panther and $218M over four. However, Black Panther domination is far from over. Industry estimates believe it’s significantly higher at $195.3M three-day for Marvel’s Black Panther and a $225.7M four-day, and that’s because hourlies are flying off the grid, with some analysts’ four-day projections at $230M. (Deadline)
