Rappers need to be on alert because it seems as if they're being attacked more while minding their business in the streets. We reported earlier about rapper Skinnyfromthe9 getting assaulted and Adam 22 of No Jumper posting a clip of the altercation on his Twitter page. The violent altercation can be seen on the video as the attacker repeated punches Skinnyfromthe9 inside of a Hibachi restaurant before leaving the scene.
"The dude that hit me is a straight b***h. He came up to me while I was eating at a restaurant by myself with a girl and was like, 'Yo, I know you eatin' right now, but can I take a picture?' I got up, put my arm around him like we was gonna take a picture —like we was posin'— and the dude snuck me," he said. "And then we started wrestlin', and that's what happened. My face is fine. I still f**k b***hes. I still got all my jewelry - the dumbass didn't even get my jewelry. He tried."
Last month, rapper YBN Almighty Jay turned himself over to police after he was accused of robbing Skinnyfromthe9 of cash and jewelry. Jay adamantly denies the claims, but the incident created a division between the two rappers. The blood is apparently still bad between them as Jay hopped on Instagram to laugh at Skinnyfromthe9's reported beatdown.
"I got jumped this n***a got a beating," Jay wrote with eight laughing emojis. Skinny seemed amused as he responded, "He blocked me," adding, "This n***a got stripped his whole ass was on everybody's feed. I went to Texas...They stripped this n***a."

A few thousand dollars worth of missing money is enough to set someone on edge, but $1.5 million? Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball has reportedly severed ties with longtime friend and Big Baller apparel co-founder Alan Foster after over a million dollar has gone missing from his personal and business accounts. Ball told ESPN that Foster "used his access to my business and personal finances to enrich himself. As a result, I have decided to sever all ties with Alan, effective immediately."
Foster has known Ball since he was a seventh grader and helped in establishing the NBA star's Big Baller brand. ESPN reported on Foster's sketchy criminal past that includes a seven-year stint in prison for mail fraud and money laundering. "This dude is one of the smartest suckers ever," LaVar Ball told ESPN when speaking of Foster in 2017. "He knows how everything goes...He was like, 'I'll tell you what. You're going to put all the work in with your boys. I'll come back and run the agency. Whatever you need me to do. Let me do it, though.’”
Sources claim that Ball's financial adviser, Humble Lukanga of Life Line Financial Group, began to notice that something was wrong back in October. It's also said that Ball has been vocal about his concerns about Foster, but he's leaned on his father, LaVar Ball, to handle the situation. LaVar issued a statement to ESPN regarding the missing money and the split from Foster, calling the situation "devastating."
"I've always believed in the best in people. Regretfully, I put my complete trust in Alan Foster to manage my son's business affairs," LaVar said. "At the end of the day, family comes first, and I support Zo wholeheartedly. Together, we will make this right."
Darren Moore, Ball's personal manager said, "Alan Foster was more than a trusted adviser. He was a mentor, a father figure and someone Lonzo and I respected, loved and listened to. ... I'm proud of Lonzo for waking up and taking back his power. Together, we will fight for justice."
ESPN reports that Foster initially agreed for a sit down interview about the allegations, but ultimately didn't respond when they followed up with him. The Lakers declined to comment on the situation.

The Michael Jackson boycott is in full force these days following HBO's Leaving Neverland docuseries which explores Wade Robson and James Safechuck's allegations of child molestation at the hands of Michael Jackson. The docuseries prompted The Simpsons to remove the late singer's episode from syndication and the series entirely while Drake removed his posthumous collab with the iconic singer from his tour set. In Jordan Peele's latest film, Us, the director made reference to Michael Jackson which seemed to upset a few people. However, he explained that there was a symbolic meaning behind it.
Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesSpeaking to Variety at the premiere of Us, Jordan Peele explained one pop culture reference that caught everyone's attention. In the opening sequence, Lupita Nyong'o's character is a little girl when her dad wins her a "Thriller" t-shirt at an amusement park. She puts on the shirt before walking into a house of mirrors.
The reference of Michael Jackson didn't cause any sort of issues between the studio and director, according to Peele himself. “No, we start in the eighties and it’s an image of well documented duality and the film is about duality,” Peele said. He added that the reference is, “a tone-setter, and I think it sets a chilling tone, but one of much duality.”
Jordan Peele's Us serves as his directorial follow-up to 2017's critically acclaimed, Get Out.

Skinnyfromthe9 is probably more well known for the incidents he's involved in more so than the music he releases. Ever since he began to gain popularity, his name has been in headlines but not necessarily for the right reasons. Most recently, Adam22 of No Jumper recently shared a video of the rapper getting jumped in the middle of a restaurant.
Skinnyfromthe9 got into an altercation at Hibachi's earlier today with the footage from the fight posted to Adam22's Twitter page. The 14-second clip shows the rapper and another man wrestling before the attacker threw the rapper against a wall. The rapper has since issued a statement regarding the attack.
"The dude that hit me is a straight bitch. He came up to me while I was eating at a restaurant by myself with a girl and was like, 'Yo, I know you eatin' right now, but can I take a picture?' I got up, put my arm around him like we was gonna take a picture —like we was posin'— and the dude snuck me," he said. "And then we started wrestlin', and that's what happened. My face is fine. I still fuck bitches. I still got all my jewelry - the dumbass didn't even get my jewelry. He tried."
He continued to throw shots at Adam22 for posting the video and said the guy who attacked him didn't want to squabble up one-on-one.
"Dumbass nigga. He ran outside like a bitch," he added. "He would not fight me one on one. I would beat your ass, Adam, you a whole rat. Shut the fuck up. Skinny Gang. Where I'm from, when you wanna fight somebody, you go up to them and niggas square up. Niggas throw they sh*t up and fight it out. Not no bitch shit, where you go and sneak niggas. That's corny."
Peep his response below.

It looks like there may have been a feature missing from Nav's latest project but the rapper assured fans that it will arrive. Earlier today, the rapper hopped on Twitch with Ninja for a "Fortnite" session while they discussed the rapper's latest project, Bad Habits. The "first brown boy who got it poppin'" revealed that he and Future have some heat on the way.
Jon Kopaloff/Getty ImagesNav and Future are gearing up to drop some new heat in the future, the Toronto rapper confirmed during a live stream. "So, yeah, that song is gonna be with Future... Yeah, Nav featuring Future coming up, very soon," he told Ninja. "It's kind of like 'what's next, now?'" He added.
Over the years, Future's formed a strong bond with the XO crowd, collaborating with The Weeknd on two different occasions. Future also worked with Belly in the past on the song, "Frozen Water."
Aside from the Future collab, Nav shared some unfortunate news ahead of the release of his latest project. The rapper claimed that Don Cannon and DJ Drama weren't going to give him or the XO team clearance on Lil Uzi Vert's verse on "Habits."
"I know y’all wanted habits on the album," NAV wrote. "I had an open verse for the longest and Uzi blessed us one. Unfortunately DJ Drama and Don Cannon won’t clear his verse legally," he added.
Hopefully, we get that Uzi/Nav collab in the future but atleast we know that Nav got something on the way with The WZRD rapper.
