50 Cent is not letting up. The rapper has been the propagator of the phrase "No Diddy" on social media, as a means of clowning disgraced mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs. He's used it on during interviews and IG captions, but the phrase reached new levels of attention on April 24 when Gucci Mane dropped the song "TakeDat." Gucci goes at the Bad Boy founder for four minutes straight by saying "No Diddy" after every line, and 50 absolutely loved it. He was such a fan of Gucci's diss, in fact, that he reposted it on his own Instagram profile with an endorsement.

"Oh sh*t," 50 wrote in the caption. "Wop took dat hit. This Diddy POPPED." Nobody has been more openly critical of Diddy than 50, especially once the criminal allegations started to roll in. He posted pics from the raid on Diddy's house in March, and even found time to praise a woman holding a "No Diddy" sign during a ceremony in Shreveport. The "21 Questions" rapper added insult to injury by talking to Diddy directly in the caption. "That's what you get f*cking wit me," he added. Fans flocked to the comment section, suggesting that 50 hop on the "TakeDat" remix.

50 Cent and Gucci Mane have historically been on the same. 50 supported the Atlanta legend when he dropped a diss track against Jeezy titled "Rumors" in 2022. The track had a bar referencing the "ghost of Pookie," and 50 hopped on Instagram Live to rap along while doing his best Gucci Mane impression. 50 had previously had beef with Young Jeezy himself, so there was no love lost between rivals. 50 and Gucci, who have often been compared to one another, also collaborated on the 2013 song "Recently."

The G-Unit mogul is continuing his anti-Diddy campaign behind the scenes. In December, he announced plans to release a documentary focusing on Diddy's various sexual crimes. "The Diddy documentary is in development through G-Unit Film and Television with 50 serving as executive producer," a rep said. The proceeds from the documentary will be donated to victims of sexual assault and rape. A release date has not yet been announced.

Lil Nas X has really kept fans waiting. His debut album, MONTERO, was a huge breakthrough release in 2021, earning a platinum certification and three Grammy nominations. The rapper been has been quiet in subsequent years, however, despite confirming that his next release will be a sequel to his breakthrough mixtape, NASARATI. There have been leaks, teasers, and official lead singles for NASARATI 2, but 2024 seems to be the years fans will actually get to hear it. Lil Nas X's latest single, "Trust Me," only supports this theory.

Lil Nas X teased "Trust Me" in March, but he finally blessed fans with the full version on April 24. The song differs drastically from the rapper's previous teaser, "Lean On My Body," which opted for a more melodic, pop-rap approach. "Trust Me," by contrast, goes for a harder, more gritty sound. This can be registered in the single artwork, which sees the often flamboyantly dressed Nas X rocking a tank top and jean shorts. The "Industry Baby" rapper focuses on his teenage years and the difficulty he had coming to terms with his sexuality. "Back in middle school, I was fiending for d*ck," he raps. "7th grade, sending my homies some pics. Daddy never knew what I did as a kid, he would've crucified me but..."

Lil Nas X Talks About His Struggles As A Teen

The second verse lays out Lil Nas X's struggles in the current day. He raps about health concerns, wealth goals, and his insecurities as a pop star. The transparency extends the the chorus: "Anytime I'm wrong I'll admit it, why not," he sings. "Rather tell the truth than pretend, why lie?." Nas X has always been honest with his music, and "Trust Me" is a reminder than he can do so over a simple, catchy hip-hop beat. The song is currently streaming on SoundCloud, which is where NASARATI 2 will eventually be released.

What are your thoughts on this brand-new song, "Trust Me," by Lil Nas X? Does the rapper keep his hot streak going? Do you like the stripped-down approach to the production? Do you think NASARATI 2 will be Nas X's best project yet? We want to hear what you have to say, so be sure to leave your takes in the comments section.

Usher has a reputation for being a smooth talker. He's built an entire career on it, from his music to his effortless dance moves onstage. The R&B icon learned that he isn't the only one in the family who has game, however. He took to Instagram on April 24 to reveal that his son, Naviyd, snatched his phone so that he could slide in the DMs of his current favorite artist: PinkPantheress. The revelation would have been funny on its own, but Usher decided to document the entire incident with screenshots and quotes.

Usher recounted his confusion upon realizing he had a DM interaction with someone he didn't know. "So, a week or so ago my son, Naviyd, stole my phone so he could dm his favorite artist @pinkpantheress," he wrote. "Now I just so happened to check my DMs earlier this past week and saw a message exchange from someone with a Powerpuff girl as their profile pic. So I'm like the hell is this." The R&B singer then realized what had happened when he clicked on the pic. "I open it and I'm like oh this boy done DMd this girl from my damn phone," he added.

You can scroll through Naviyd's entire DM conversation below. The highlight is undoubtedly the message where Naviyd, 15, claims to have exposed his dad to Pantheress' music. "I put him onto masterpieces," he wrote with a salute emoji.

Usher reached out to PinkPantheress to apologize, but the pop star took it in stride. "Don't apologize," she responded. "Happy to have this interaction. I'd love to host y'all at the next show." Usher pretended that he was going to prevent his son from going to the show "because he did the MOST just to connect with her on my account," but he relented. Naviyd even got a chance to meet PinkPantheress and take photos with her backstage. The DM long shot worked out!

Usher and PinkPantheress have not officially collaborated on a song, but they've been the recipient of several viral mashups on TikTok. The most popular mashup combines Usher's "Burn" with Pantheress' single "Just for Me." Usher has also praised the current generation of R&B stars. "I'm very happy that there's a new installation of R&B artists who care to be authentic to what they are creating, inspired by artists of the past," he told Billboard. "Everybody who has ever said to me that R&B is dead sounds crazy."

Logic is a conceptual dude. His second album, The Incredible True Story, was about a group of friends flying around the universe in spaceship. His third album, Everybody, was about a man who died and was subsequently reincarnated in different bodies. The Maryland rapper has kept it simple since he came out of retirement. His latest project, however, has restored some of his ambition. Ultra 85, the upcoming Logic album, will coincide with the release of a novel of the same name.

Logic confirmed the existence of the novel via Instagram on April 24. He not treated fans to what the cover art looked like, but provided some context for the novel (and presumably, the album). "In the year 2115, when the Earth is no longer inhabitable, the remainder of humanity lives in Babel, a giant space station," he wrote in the caption. "Two pilots, Quentin and Kai, must find the planet Paradise, where only the most promising citizens are allowed to live." The rapper explained that his main characters will be forced to confront the fact that "Paradise" is not all it's cracked up to be.

Logic's Novel Will Conclude A Long-Running Story

The plot details for Ultra 85 confirms that it will be a sequel to The Incredible True Story and Everybody. It will mark the completion of the titular story, nearly a decade later. Ultra 85 will also be the second time Logic pairs an album up with a companion novel. He released the novel Supermarket in 2017, which came with a titular album in which Logic explored the rock and punk genres. The latter was panned by most critics, but the novel was actually given positive notices.

Ultra 85 is currently available for pre-order on Simon & Schuster. It will be released on September 17. Fans have flocked to the comment section to speculate whether the accompanying album will drop on the same day. Both the Supermarket album and novel dropped on March 26, 2019, so it stands to reason the rapper would trot out a similar rollout for Ultra 85. Logic previously claimed that Ultra 85 would be his last album, but he's since clarified his statement. He told a Reddit user during a Q&A that he will always make music, but that Ultra 85 will be his last album under the "Logic" moniker. The rapper first teased Ultra 85 back in 2018, though it has gone through several iterations since.

The second single from the album, "44ever," was released April 19.

Tokyo Toni is someone who never fails to keep her followers entertained, and her latest freestyle is certainly no exception. Earlier this week, the iconic mother of Angela White, FKA Blac Chyna, took to social media to spit some bars for her fans. As expected, she threw plenty of shade along the way, namely towards Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B.

The Finding Love ASAP star is known to have issues with Cardi, as she's both a fan and friend of one of the femcee's longtime rivals, Nicki Minaj. During Nicki's infamous feud with Meg after the drop of "Hiss," she also sided with the "FTCU" performer. She's since accused Cardi B of stealing her look and sneak dissing her, and slammed any Meg supporter to cross her path.

Tokyo kept her disses short and simple, but they still managed to pack a punch. "Nicki Minaj, shout-out," she rhymes. "Cardi B lost out. Megan thotted out." Clearly, Tokyo Toni isn't dodging any kind of smoke these days. It's to be seen whether or not either of the rappers will respond. Fortunately for them, they're in good company, as the reality star has also previously dissed Beyonce, Karlissa Saffold, and many more. She even recently went after Rick Ross in another freestyle, calling the hitmaker a "fat bald b*tch."

"Maybach Music? What the f**k is that?" Tokyo also rapped. "The ni**a's a rat / He got the police friends and that." What do you think of Tokyo Toni's new freestyle? What about her dissing Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B? Are you surprised? Do you think Nicki Minaj is glad she got a shout-out?

MGK has spent most of his career battling other artists. He's aimed confrontational bars at the likes of Jack Harlow, G-Eazy, and most famously, Eminem. He hasn't always come out on top (most fans think Eminem took his head off), but that's beside the point. The bottom line is that he's shown a willingness to get in the ring when he has an issue with someone. It may be due of this reputation that MGK clarified he has no problem with Taylor Swift. The rapper-turned-rock star stated, unequivocally, that he doesn't want to suffer the ire of "Swifties."

The topic came about during a recent episode of the YouTube series First We Feast. MGK and Trippie Redd took turns giving each other difficult prompts, and the former got a doozy involving Swift. Redd dared MGK to name three negative things about the "Antihero" singer. "You offered to pay $1 million if Travis Kelce would come play for the Cleveland Browns," the rapper noted. "Burn that bridge by saying three mean things about Taylor Swift." MGK immediately rejected the prompt, despite Redd's teasing. "Jesus Christ, I just - bro, she's very nice," MGK asserted. "She's very, very nice."

MGK Claimed That Taylor Swift Is A "Saint"

Redd's teasing continued, which spurred MGK to state his reasoning. "Ladies and gentleman," he stated. You've got to be out of your muthaf**king mind if you think I want any smoke with that fanbase." MGK's unadulterated support continued: "Also, Taylor is a saint and she's very nice to me." MGK's fandom is not surprising, given that he was pictured partying alongside Swift and Kelce at the Super Bowl. The "Tickets to My Downfall" singer was also seen attending Swift's "Eras Tour" in August 2023.

MGK and Trippie Redd recently dropped the collab EP Genre: Sadboy. The former made his name in the world of pop-punk over the last couple years, but he recently told Audacy that he's going to be returning to rap music. "I'm going to make a rap album for myself," he announced. "For no other reason, no point to prove, no chip on my shoulder... If I keep doing things to prove things to people, I'm going to, one, drive myself crazy and, two, not make a good product."

It's no secret that Kanye West is a man of many endeavors, and recently, reports surfaced claiming he'll be adding yet another to the list. According to TMZ, Ye plans to open a brand new "Yeezy porn" studio as early as this summer. He's teaming up with Stormy Daniels' ex Mike Moz for the unexpected venture. Ye shared the news officially on his YouTube channel today, alongside a brief message.

While Ye appears to be on his way to breaking new ground, not all of his fans are thrilled about it. Amid the reports, he's received a great deal of backlash online. Religious supporters, and those who recall him admitting to having a porn addiction, continue to criticize him for the bold move. According to Adam22, however, he could have a positive impact on the industry as a whole.

Kanye West Says Adult Content Is On The Way

During a recent interview with TMZ, the No Jumper host weighed in on the reports of Ye's new venture. He also offered the mogul some words of advice. "The main thing that I think that Kanye could bring to the porn world, aside from just more eyeballs, would just be him sort of adding to the aesthetic component," he explained.

"Cuz if you look at the brands that have come out over the years that have really kind of changed things in terms of porn, I think just like creating new imagery and like changing up the visuals. Cuz porn does tend to get kind of stale," he also added.
