Tyler The Creator, DJ Khaled
Tyler The Creator Addresses DJ Khaled Feud Over #1 Album: 'This N***a Had Every Person In The Industry On That Album'
Tyler The Creator is speaking out about his beef with DJ Khaled. DJ Khaled sparked the feud when Tyler's IGOR album beat DJ Khaled's Father of Asahd for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. Both projects were released on May 17.
DJ Khaled was accused of subliminally dissing Tyler in a video. DJ Khaled said,
"I gotta say this, too. I make albums so people can play it and you actually hear it. You know, drive in the car and you hear another car playin' it. You know, go to the barbershop and you hear them playin' it. You know, turn the radio on and you hear them playin' it. You know, it's playin' everywhere. It's called great music. It's called albums that you actually hear the songs - not no mysterious sh*t and you never hear it. Pon your dome!"
Tyler seemed to respond.
Now, he has more to say, after pointing out he didn't have too many fans of his 2015 Cherry Bomb project.
"I'm just saying people f***ing hated that f***ing [Cherry Bomb] album. I put [IGOR] out and it [landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart], and again, I don't make s*** to be first week or be radio or whatever, but for this work of art and that album cover and these videos and me doing this suit wig thing and having these progressions and this distorted this and that, and these melodies and this stuff like that, beat ... "
He then pointed out that DJ Khaled had lots of popular artists featured on his album.
"...and this is no disrespect to Khaled or anyone, but this n***a had every person in the industry, everyone on that f***ing album. Everyone. Everyone. Cardi B. 21 Savage. Travis Scott. Post Malone. Beyoncé. Jay. Everyone who sells billions of records and the fact that I beat him with this that isn't parallel to all the popping music right now was f***ing crazy, bro."

Meghan McCain Reveals Recent Miscarriage 'To The End Of My Days I Will Remember This Child'
Sad news for Meghan McCain. The View co-host revealed that she suffered a major loss recently.
In an op-ed for The New York Times, McCain spoke out for the first time about a miscarriage she had a few of weeks ago.
"I knew I was pregnant before I formally knew I was pregnant. My body told me in all the ways women are familiar with. It told me in the same ways that I was miscarrying. The confirmation from my doctor came the day of that photo shoot, at the worst possible time."
She went on to say,
"This was not supposed to be public knowledge. I have had my share of public grief and public joy. I wish this grief-the grief of a little life begun and then lost-could remain private."
Still, McCain who was expecting a baby girl added that she wants her story to shine on a light on the 3 million children lost each year. She also wants to end the stigma around miscarriages.
"Miscarriage is a pain too often unacknowledged. Yet it is real, and what we have lost is real. We feel sorrow and we weep because our babies were real."
She said to this day she asks herself,
"the same question every mother asks who loves and loses a child: Why? Why was this light and joy held before us, and then the world where this child drew breath cast into shadow? Why was an innocent life created in the image of God and then abruptly snuffed out?"
McCain revealed that she first blamed herself before coming to terms with the loss.
"Perhaps it was wrong of me to choose to be a professional woman, working in a high-pressure, high-visibility, high-stress field, still bearing the burden of the recent loss of my father and facing on top of that the arrows that come with public life. This is not a complaint. This is reality. I blamed my age, I blamed my personality. I blamed everything and anything a person could think of, and what followed was a deep opening of shame."
"Life and death are beyond our power. I had a miscarriage. I loved my baby, and I always will. To the end of my days I will remember this child-and whatever children come will not obscure that. I have love for my child. I have love for all the women who, like me, were briefly in the sisterhood of motherhood, hoping, praying and nursing joy within us, until the day the joy was over."
McCain also lost her father, honorable Senator John McCain to cancer last year.
John McCain, Meghan McCain
Meghan is married to conservative journalist Ben Domenech. They tied the knot on Nov. 21, 2017.
Prayers and thoughts for Meghan during her tough time!

Donald Trump, A$AP Rocky
Donald Trump Vows To 'Personally Vouch' For A$AP Rocky's Bail
President Donald Trump has stepped up to help get A$AP Rocky out of jail in Sweden.
Trump revealed on Twitter he's already spoken with the Prime Minister in the country, Stefan Löfven, who promised that the jailed rapper would not be mistreated. Trump added that they have plans to speak again in the near future.
"Just had a very good call with @SwedishPM Stefan Löfven who assured me that American citizen A$AP Rocky will be treated fairly. Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative....
....Our teams will be talking further, and we agreed to speak again in the next 48 hours!"
His move came after he spoke with Kanye West, who along with his wife Kim Kardashian West, lobbied the White House for A$AP Rocky's release earlier this week. Trump tweeted,
"Just spoke to @KanyeWest about his friend A$AP Rocky's incarceration. I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky. So many people would like to see this quickly resolved!"
He was also hopeful about A$AP Rocky's release in a press conference. Kardashian thanked Trump on Twitter for his efforts.
"Thank you @realDonaldTrump @SecPompeo, Jared Kushner & everyone involved with the efforts to Free ASAP Rocky & his two friends. Your commitment to justice reform is so appreciated"
A$AP Rocky is currently being held as prosecutors decide if they are going to charge him with assault after he was seen getting into a fight. He has been there for more than two weeks, and a judge ruled Friday that he'll have to stay because he's considered a flight risk.
Still, there's a clear double standard against A$AP Rocky, compared to rapper G-Eazy who was also arrested in Sweden last year. He was accused of attacking a security guard and possessing cocaine.
Jada Pinkett Smith shared her thoughts on Twitter.
Jada Pinkett Smith
"Hold it ... G-Eazy got to strike a deal a day and half after possession of drugs and assault charges??? But you're holding Rocky. We got the message loud and clear Sweden. Trust me ... we got it."
Even G-Eazy spoke out and agreed that "systemic racism" is at play.
"Facts. This is the sad truth...The difference between me and Rocky's treatment and process in Sweden brings to mind two concepts that disgustingly go hand in hand: white privilege and systemic racism. Let's call it what it is. He should not be behind bars right now. My heart goes out to my brother @asaprocky and his team. We're riding for yall. #JusticeForRocky #FreeRocky"

Business is booming in marijuana and Mathew Knowles is the latest celebrity to enter the lucrative industry.
Mathew & Beyonce
According to reports, the 67-year-old business man, who is father to Beyonce and Solange Knowles, has signed on as chief marketing officer of Bangi Inc., a company that buys and leases real estate for weed farms and dispensaries.
Knowles explains Bangi's role,
"We are buying land .?.?. We'll lease it back to the growers, the dispensaries, the extraction companies."
He will be putting together their global marketing campaign.
Meanwhile, Knowles' son-in-law, Jay Z, has also entered the same business.
He's been named the Chief Brand Strategist for Caliva, a privately-owned cannabis company in San Jose, California. He's already signed on to a multi-year partnership. The key part of his role will be to assist with social justice issues over the legalization of marijuana. He's also set to help with job training for former inmates and push strategies that will improve the representation of the previously incarcerated in the weed industry. Jay-Z explained why he contacted the company in his search for a partnership in the marijuana field.
"Anything I do, I want to do correctly and at the highest level. With all the potential in the cannabis industry, Caliva's expertise and ethos make them the best partners for this endeavor. We want to create something amazing, have fun in the process, do good and bring people along the way."
Knowles admits that he was unaware of Jigga's deal and learned in the press about it.
"I found out the way you found out. [I thought,] 'How ironic.' I called my people, [and was like,] 'Damn, I wish mine would have come out first!' The same week is cool. Neither one of us knew what the other was doing."
