Cam'ron got his start as a rapper early. The "Hey Ma" rapper became known among Harlem at a young age for being able to deliver ruthless bars seemingly on command. Now, Killer Cam has given fans a glimpse of those early days in a new Instagram post on Saturday.
In the video, a 19-year-old Cam'ron spits in a cypher from way back in March of 1995. "Before DIPSET IT WAS BBO then COC!!!" wrote Cam in the caption. "This is footage is In ST Nick PJ’s, These are the bars u get when u spar with @rsvpmase #BigL #BloodShed and @therealherbmcgruff (in a good way) every week. Still wasn’t taking rap serious tho. This was a month after I got kicked out of college. Still thought I was going to the NBA. So I got a 8 ball to hold me over till I got back into school. Never went back tho." The rapper promised that there's more where this footage comes from, writing, "I’ll post part 2 on Monday!!"

The video was taken three years before Cam'ron released his debut single "Horse & Carriage," a collaboration with Ma$e. Eventually, Cam'ron, Ma$e, and their other Harlem friends Big L and Bloodshed formed Children of the Corn, a rap super group.
Ma$e and Cam have been beefing in recent years. Earlier this month, Ma$e admitted that he regretted getting on bad terms with his old friend. A few days later, Ma$e posted a video of himself calling the rapper, and it looks like their beef has now officially been squashed.
Keep your eyes on Cam'ron's IG for more of these trips down memory lane. He's been known to often post snapshots from his past with industry legends.

Everyone knows Draymond Green loves a good rivalry, and it looks like one of the rivalries he's been cultivating will be played out on Christmas. For a while now, Draymond and Grizzlies star Ja Morant have been talking trash, and the Christmas game will finally give them an opportunity to do more than talk. Both players celebrated the news on Twitter.
"We got what we wanted Dray," Morant wrote on the social media platform after hearing the news. Draymond responded, "That's the power of your voice Young! Let's goooo!" He added that after the game, which is scheduled for the day, he wants Ja to come to his place. "Bring the fam to the crib for dinner after," Green wrote.
The two faced off against each other in West semifinals, with the Warriors coming out on top after six games. The series got heated quickly, with trash talking, accusations of dirty play, and close games escalating the rivalry between the two teams.
Back in June, Draymond responded to some of the chirping Morant was doing on Twitter. "Now, talking s**t to the team that won a championship after they beat you after they win a championship is an entirely different level of oblivion. It doesn’t get much more oblivious than that," Draymond said on his podcast. "So I think now, they’re going to get their reality check. And it’s not that they will still be able to win. They may still be able to win, but they’re going to realize how much harder it is for them to win. And now because they’re talking the way they’re talking, they better lose that oblivion, because they better understand these moments now are huge."
Only time will tell who can back up their talk.

This past Friday (August 12), Megan Thee Stallion dropped her album, Traumazine. Equipped with 18 songs, the project included features from artists like Key Glock, Latto, Lucky Daye, Jhené Aiko, and many other talents. She also collaborated with a rapper who was on the rise before he got locked up-- Pooh Shiesty.
Together, the two worked to produce the eighth song on the project, "Who Me." Produced by KTOE, a 23-year-old Toronto native, the beat was filled with bass and ringing sounds, making it distinct from the other records. Seconds after the song started, Megan hit the ground running with one of her most memorable adlibs, "Real hot girl sh*t."
Right away, she went into her verse, rapping about her riches, sex life, and the incident that changed the course of her career. "I feel Biggie/Who shot you? But everybody know who shot me, b*tch," the H-Town hottie said in reference to the ongoing trial between her and Tory Lanez. Without diving too deeply into it, though, her next line was, "Now let's stop speaking on that topic/Look at this new sh*t on my wrist."
After she finished, the Memphis native came in, speaking about a plethora of topics ranging from his type of women to catching opps. Stream the record below.
She got french tips on her hands
But she keep pink polish up on her fett
Knew she was locked in
The day she poured a cup of wock' with me

Last month, Cardi B appeared on the cover of Vogue Singapore, much to the adoration of her fans. She also claimed that she's focusing on her next album, and released a new single, "Hot Shit," with Kanye West and Lil Durk. But prioritizing her music doesn't mean Cardi's not keeping up her Vogue-worthy looks.
In a recent post on Instagram, Cardi let fans in on her secret to healthy hair. According to Cardi, the key is in the onion. "My last 2 washes I been boiling onions and using the water to wash my hair," the rapper wrote. She continued by saying this is a tried a true technique for her. "I used to do this 6 years ago when I started my healthy hair growth journey," she said. "I stopped cause I got really lazy."
Cardi was also quick to assure people that the strong stench onions carry is not present in her process. "Its odorless," she claimed. "And I notice that it’s been giving a shine to my hair."
Cardi's isn't alone in this haircare strategy. According to Healthline, Onions carry "compounds that may help to enhance dry, damaged hair." People who use the vegetable say that it also can help with hair growth and impede graying. Proceed with caution, however. As the influencer @iamjuju_ noted in the comments of Cardi's post, "I have to try boiling the onions .. I was juicing them and left it too long .. & for an entire year, anytime my hair was blowed out or straightened it smelled like Sofrito."

Last week, Kim Kardashian called it quits with her boyfriend of nine months, Pete Davidson. While neither of them have addressed it, Kanye West wasted no time trolling their breakup. West took to his Instagram account and shared a newspaper with the headline "SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28.”
Aside from Ye, the public is also having fun at Kim and Pete's expense. The mother of four has been trending on sports gambling sites as users place bets on who she'll get into a relationship with next. Being that Kim has an extensive list of former partners, people online are intrigued to see where her love life will go.
Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty ImagesOne list that has been circulating online consists of 20 possible candidates. Ranked from most to least likely, the top five men are CNN commentator, Van Jones; Kim's former fling, Ray J; father of eight, Nick Cannon; singer and actor, Jamie Foxx; and Captain America actor, Chris Evans. Amongst these men is also her ex-husband, Kanye West.
Other wealthy men on the list included Elon Musk, Harry Styles, Michael B. Jordan, Eminem, and others. As of now, Kim has yet to make a comment regarding the sports websites.
In other news regarding the 41-year-old, she recently announced a brand collaboration with Beats by Dre. Her edition of the Fit Pro earbuds come in different shades of nude. When talking about the inspiration behind the color palette, she shared, "I wanted to break away from the idea that headphones have to be colorful to make a statement."

Kylie Jenner's been celebrating her 25th birthday in a variety of ways, and now her partner Travis Scott has added to the festivities. Scott's been away in London for his first solo concert since Astroworld at the O2 Arena. It's safe to say the artist can still draw a crowd, as he sold over a million dollars in merch, setting a record in the UK.
It looks like some of this money was used to wow Jenner with quite the over-the-top birthday gift. In a video, Kylie showed off the Houston rapper's big gift, an inordinate amount of roses covering nearly the entirety of her Holmby Hills mansion.
Scott, who has two kids with Kylie, seems to have ordered a whole Netherlands-worth of flowers for his girlfriend. There must be few pink and purple flowers left on earth that are not currently wilting inside Kylie's home.
It has been a pretty good bday for Kylie. She had a huge yacht party with members of her family, including Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and her daughter Stormi. Jenner posted a video of the party on TikTok, writing, "best bday," along with two butterfly emojis.
@kyliejennerbest bday 🦋🦋
♬ original sound - Kylie JennerThings seems to be going swimmingly for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star. She recently hinted at perhaps having more children with Travis, and wedding rumors have been swirling around the couple for a while now. Additionally, perhaps in anticipation of her big day, Instagram made changes to its platform after Kylie and Kim complained about its new features.

Yung Miami, whose real name is Caresha Brownlee, started her podcast, Caresha Please, back in June and it's made quite the impression on social media users. She's had sit-down conversations with her love interest, Diddy, and one of hip-hop's freakiest men, Kevin Gates. Now, the mother of two has returned with her best friends, JT and Saucy Santana.
She teased the trailer for the show on August 10 and it was released the following day. It's garnered over one million views thus far and fans and supporters can't stop talking about the hour-and-a-half long episode. Together, the three artists talked about their sex life, music careers, and their relationships-- to which JT had a lot to say.

It's no secret that JT is madly in love with her man, Lil Uzi Vert. The two have been together since 2019, and it seems like their feelings for each other are still intact. "Uzi literally would do any and everything for me,” she told her friends, "but I don’t flex it no mo'." She then went on the reveal that the "Money Longer" artist pays all of her bills.
"We live together," she stated, "he [pays] all the bills. I don’t pay a bill. I don’t even know what the first of the month is... Like I don’t pay a bill, I’m put up. Because b*tch, who doing that?”
Despite being head over heels for Uzi, she assured Miami and Santana that she is still a "city girl" after they started to tease her, "My man [knows.]"

Britney Spears has been having a tough time with her ex's as of late. One of her ex-husbands, Kevin Federline, recently posted a video of Spears in an argument with their two sons. Federline wrote, "I can not sit back and let my sons be accused in this way after what they’ve been through. As much as it hurts us, we decided as a family to post these videos the boys took when they were 11 & 12." Spears' lawyer defended her, as did many of her fans and peers.
Spears is now in a new marriage with Sam Asghari, and the couple was harassed by another ex of Spears', Jason Alexander (no, not the Seinfeld one). Back in June, when the pop icon and Asghari tied the knot, Alexander broke into Spears' Thousand Oaks home. He livestreamed entering the estate and walking up to Britney's bedroom door, which was locked because she was getting for ready for the wedding inside. Alexander was eventually forcibly removed from the property, but managed to damage a door and attack a security guard before he left.
Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesThis past weekend, Alexander reportedly appeared in court in Ventura County, where he pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors. The judge on the case issued a protective order prohibiting Alexander from coming within 100 yards of the "Toxic" singer along with the security guard he attacked. The judge also reportedly sentenced Alexander to 64 days in jail, which he has already served. The prosecutors on the case dropped the additional charges of felony stalking and misdemeanor vandalism.
Alexander and Spears were married for less than three days back in 2004. Those 72 hours must have been magical for Alexander, because it seems he still hasn't moved on.

Last week, rapper Kodak Black expressed his frustrations with NBA Youngboy's fan base. After Kodak, whose real name is Bill Kapri, went on Instagram live and called all recent rap albums "mid," YB's fans did what they usually do-- troll. They instantly took to the Florida native's comments and wrote things like "YB better."
Joel Auerbach/Getty ImagesThis prompted Kodak to hop on Twitter and write, "Bra I Like YoungBoy Music ITS JUST THIS N*GGA FANS HOMIE ! OR WHOEVER TF BEHIND ALL THIS #YBBETTER SH*T. THAT SH*T BE IRRITATING [straight face emoji] AND CANT NOBODY ELSE SAY THEY DONT FEEL ME , A N*GGA TOO REAL I AINT HATING ON NO F*CKIN BODY I JUST SAY WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE SCARED TO SAY."
Youngboy, born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, caught Kodak's remarks and decided to leave him a message in an IG post. After he talked about his latest project, The Last Slimeto, he concluded his message by adding, "P.S. you don't like my fans I don't like you "p*ssy." Following this, things went haywire.
Kodak went on a Twitter rant last night, making posts that seemed to align with his disagreement with the Louisiana native. "B*tch A** N*gga KNOW FIRSTHAND I STAND UP TO DAT SMOKE! I Could Never B P*ssy BIG MONKEY NUTS #YOUKNOW FR FR!," is what the 25-year-old wrote online.
He also added, "N*GGAS GET ON THIS NET & PLAY STUPID," before saying that respect is earned. Following his constant tweeting, Kodak's profile was disabled. As of now, Youngboy has yet to respond to his posts.

Martha Stewart has been keeping an eye on Pete Davidson's love life. Back in May, she ran into Davidson and his then-girlfriend Kim Kardashian, and she spoke highly of them. "They’re fun," she said. "They’re very nice together." Now that Davidson and Kardashian are through, some fans started to wonder if there was anything brewing between the cooking icon and the comedian.
Stewart, however, was quick to shoot the rumors down, though she does see the appeal. "He is a charming boy who is finding his way," she remarked when The Daily Mail asked if she and Davidson had a romantic future. It seems she wants to keep things platonic, saying, "Pete Davidson is like the son I never had."
Jason Mendez/Getty ImagesThe rumor mill began to churn about a possible relationship between the 81-year-old and 28-year-old when a photo of Stewart and Davidson holding hands made the rounds on Twitter. The photo was taken at the White House Correspondents' Dinner back in April, and Kim Kardashian is in the picture as well. "We should've seen this coming," wrote @gennefer on Twitter, with the photo attached.
Meanwhile, in the realm of romantic relationships which actually happened, Davidson and Kardashian seem to be keeping things cordial. One source close to them said, "They have a lot of love and respect for each other, but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship." Apparently, they are hoping to remain friends. Meanwhile, Kanye West has been watching on, celebrating the relationship's demise from the sidelines.
