Atlanta rapper Future has people thinking he's flaming former flame Ciara on the ridiculous low-low. Social media has taken notice to a rare Twitter appearance from Future Hendrixx following some CiCi drama.
The Senate is scheduled to have a key vote at noon Monday on a bill to reopen the government and fund it for three weeks, though it's unclear if this plan will win over enough Democrats to pass. The vote will come several hours after the workday for hundreds of thousands of furloughed federal employees was supposed to have begun, and comes three days after the government officially shut down Friday at midnight.

Democrats want to restore protections for 690,000 unauthorized immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, the so-called dreamers. Trump rescinded an executive order allowing them to stay in the country and gave Congress until March 5 to pass legislation. The Trump administration and GOP leaders are not willing to discuss immigration at the same time they are trying to fund the government. But since Senate Democratic votes are needed to pass a spending bill, the party has leverage and lawmakers are demanding that any legislation allow the dreamers to stay. Most Democrats in both houses are not willing to vote on Republican legislation that includes none of their priorities. (NJ)
Over the past few days, President Trump has taken direct aim at Democrats and boasted about Republicans.
Democrats are holding our Military hostage over their desire to have unchecked illegal immigration. Can't let that happen!
Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.'s!
Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz is still hurting from that historic New England Patriots comeback win against his hometown Falcons at last year's Super Bowl. The hip-hop veteran has flexed his love for sports by throwing some playful shade at the NFL G.O.A.T. Tom Brady.
Deuce went to Instagram last night (January 21) with a wild meme directed at Brady following his team's comeback 24-20 AFC Championship game win against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Atlanta rapper Quavo is giving fans a sneak peek at how much work he's putting in for an upcoming Snoop Dogg basketball game face-off. New footage has emerged of Quavo letting people know he's much more than a hitmaker.
Early Monday, Southern rapper 2 Chainz released a clip of himself and Quavo training for their celebrity game.
Recently, 2 Chainz announced plans to do a celebrity basketball game with Snoop Dogg at next month's NBA All-Star Weekend.
"I just got off the phone with my big homie, my big bro Snoop Dogg and we gonna do this GSPN thing for All-Star Weekend since the league ain't ever let me play in one of their games which is all good, all love. I did like what I do with most of my own things which is I'm going to create my own. Snoop came up with an idea to team up with adidas to do like a rappers versus rappers and it was going to be East versus West. I just got off the phone with him. We're going to do Trap picks, we started doing like blind picks already. Trinidad and Quavo, y'all already with me, y'all don't even know it yet."
New York rapper 50 Cent is back on his music grind. The hip-hop veteran has hit up social media to bless fans with some much-needed new music.
Fif went to Instagram Monday (January 22) to announce his Street King Immortal album is coming sooner than followers think. On the same post, Fif gave fans a preview of his new "Going Crazy" single with rap rookie PnB Rock.
New York rapper Cardi B is making some head-scratching comments this weekend. The hip-hop diva has weighed-in on the drama fiancé Offset sparked over the week with his usage of the word "queer" on a new song.
Cardi took to social media to come to his defense and also suggest there's a lack of educating people about socially offensive terms.
"He never acts uncomfortable. He just don't care and then when I asked him like, when I started seeing all this fuel, I was even talking to him like, 'Yo, what the f*ck is going on? Why would you use that word?' He literally told me, 'I didn't even know that was a word for gays.' He just really told me, 'I didn't.' And it has a different vocabulary on the dictionary. Now if that's a word that you guys said that it was a bad word for gays, I never even heard that word in the first place, why don't y'all educate people about it. A lot of people are not aware of what's wrong or right."
Why do rappers continue to bash the LGBTQ community? Y'all know what you're asking for when you write those lyrics in the studio. You don't sound cool or masculine-you sound a like bitch. If you're "straight" why would you be worried about a man taking another man to his bedroom? pic.twitter.com/SFORduMJxa
offset really wrote "i cannot vibe with queers", proofread that, went to the studio, recorded it, recorded ad libs over it, sent it to the producer who sent it to the label and throughout that whole process nobody thought it was a bad idea.
How can Offset say " I do not vibe with queers" when .... - collabed with Frank Ocean (a publically bisexual man) -wears and brags about all these brands made by gay men e.g. Alexander Wang, Tom Ford, Gucci, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen AND YOU CHEATED ON CARDI B BYEE
Cardi was talking about "trannys" and now Offset is saying "I do not vibe with queers". If you wanna ignore homophobia and transphobia just because it comes from a POC then full offence cause you are trash and I will not stand for it https://t.co/ngqCj1mPSU
