In an ongoing war of words between exes, Nicki Minaj and her former boyfriend, reality star/rapper Safaree makes a never-heard-before claim that the Queen femcee stabbed him in the past in their relationship and he had to lie to the cops so that she wouldn’t go to jail.

Maybe Safaree doesn’t know, or maybe he does, but there is no statute of limitation for attempted murder.

Nicki denied everything. On God.

These two have been going at it since there were a few NYC radio DJs supported both of the artists, which didn’t go well with the former couple.

This all comes as Nicki’s highly anticipated Queen album remains in heavy rotation, but her off stage sagas seem to serve more attention than the music.

Do you want to see Family Guy on the big screen in live-action?

Two weeks ago, Twentieth Century Fox investors endorsed a $71.3 billion merger with Disney, in which Fox would surrender control of its film and TV resources. The acquisition has left the Fox group with numerous unanswered inquiries and in addition fears of mass cutbacks and undertaking cancelations.

Be that as it may, underneath all the misery was some fascinating news around one of Fox’s greatest hits. As indicated by the WSJ, the studio is contemplating on developing a Family Guy feature film that is rumored to be half live-action and half animated. This certainly sounds promising.

The Family Guy venture is one of a few Fox TV arrangement that is relied upon to hit the extra large screen, joining the beforehand declared Bob’s Burgers motion picture and The Simpsons 2.

Per WSJ:

[20th Century Fox CEO Stacey] Snider has emphasized a revamp of Fox’s approach to animation, bringing in a new partner to replace an expired deal with DreamWorks Animation after it was acquired by Comcast Corp. The film studio is partnering with the Fox television studio on a big-screen adaptation of the animated series Bob’s Burgers, a second Simpsons movie in development, and a Family Guy film that would mix animation with live action, said people with knowledge of the projects.

Bob’s Burgers is set to hit theaters in 2020, while The Simpsons sequel and Family Guy live-action film have not received release dates. Although reports of these alleged movies are gaining traction, there’s no telling if these projects will ever see the light of day.

Nicki Minaj is busy doing press runs for her latest album Queen, which dropped last Friday, but she had a couple minutes to drag DJ Self. On Monday, before Chun-Li’s appearance on Stephen Colbert late night show, she stopped by Clue Radio at Power 105.1 and things went left. It’s unclear where DJ Self appears in the equation, but she told him the three disrespectful words that no New Yorker wants to hear.

Apparently, the current Love and Hip Hop: New York reality star tried to speak badly about Cardi B to Nicki Minaj, hoping that’ll amuse the Queens native but his plan backfired. Additionally, in a since-deleted Instagram post, Self began dissing the “Barbie Dreams” rapper, saying that Bardi had the best female album this year. After that, Minaj went OFF! She claims the real reason why he’s upset is that not only did he not get an exclusive interview, but he didn’t even get acknowledged or a drop for his show.

With everything taken into account, it sounds like Self got upset that Nicki played him for the drop after he was talking sh** about Cardi, so then he hopped on social media trying to be funny and started an entire war that is scheduled to continue on Queen Radio on Beats 1 Radio on Thursday. Stay tuned to hear her side of the story.

Look at Nicki’s twitter tirade below:

Nick Cannon guarantees his new show about the Bay Area will be authentic because he has Oakland legends, E-40 and Too Short, on board as producers.

He reveals to TMZ he’s psyched about his forthcoming drama series, The Yay Area, since it will be centered around Northern California’s drug culture, and its association with Silicon Valley, biker gangs, and even the Black Panthers.

Nick is hoping that this show will be a combination of The Wire and The Sopranos. Now that he has Short and 40 included, he supposes things will move rapidly. A few networks are reportedly interested in the series, and he’s even digging into his own pockets to fund efforts.

He intends to begin shooting The Yay Area this Fall. Until then, Nick is so tied up with so many other gigs. He definitely doesn’t get enough sleep.

Quavo of the Migos is quite an athletic talent. After taking home the 2018 NBA Celebrity Game MVP trophy, he can now add an additional $10k to his bag,

Thanks to a bet with Drake, he’ll have some extra cash to spend. Considering Quavo scored 19 points, on 7 of 10 shooting at his break out NBA debut Drizzy should have known better to bet against Huncho on the basketball court.

Assuming Huncho didn’t possess Steph Curry’s limitless range, Drizzy thought banking on a half-court shot was a solid bet

Unfortunately, he doesn’t have Curry’s range and had to pay the price in full. Footage of the bet can be found on Quavo’s Instagram account. The caption reads, “H A L F C O U R T S H O T  You Can Be Next!!! Jus Pull Up… SHOOT FA THE 💰,” He is ready for all the smoke if you think you can win.

Press play and “Shooting For 10 Bandz” lets you know what’s at stake before Quavo sinks the shot, making it look easy, as you’ll notice he is wearing a pair of socks and Nike slides. Drake can’t follow up the shot. Luckily, this isn’t the last time we could see the OVO and Migos camps square off on the basketball court.

Last month we informed you Drizzy had a basketball kit collaboration with Nike, Well Huncho recently informed Billboard that the Migos vs. OVO basketball tournament was the part of the tour which he was most excited about. Our money is on Team Migos

Spike Lee’s critically acclaimed film, BlacKkKlansman turned in a solid profit for its opening weekend. Lee’s latest film debut the same weekend as $96.8 million debut of The Meg. Based on BlackKKKlansman’s $15 million budget, the Brooklyn director looks to cash in on his investment and then some.

Produced by Jordan Peele (Get Out), BlacKkKlansman is based on a true story that follows African American detective, Ron Stallworth, who permeates and exposes the Ku Klux Klan of Colorado Spring, CO in the late 1970s. Stallworth published his memoir of the same name back in 2014. The film also stars John David Washington (son of Denzel) and Lauren Harrier (Spider-Man: Homecoming).  The elder Washington and Lee, have collaborations that include, Mo’ Better Blues (1990) and Malcom X (1992).

“I knew my son was going to be a good actor, he is one,” said Denzel. “And I’m his dad, I’m a proud papa.”

BlacKkKlansman debuts on the one year anniversary of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA. The tragedy and shocking nature of Charlottesville was a reflection of the United State’s leadership or lack thereof. Focus Features’ president of distribution, Lisa Bunnell, spoke about the significance of timing the film’s release.

“The anniversary of Charlottesville was something that was very key to Spike,” said Bunnell. “The state of our country is such that we’re all feeling really conflicted and alone. This movie is a call to action, and a movie that brings people together.”

BlacKkKlansman is Spike Lee’s biggest film debut in over a decade. It currently holds a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. With the movie’s success after one weekend, it is only up from here. Be sure to check it out, in theaters now.

Canada’s premiere battle rap platform, King Of The Dot Entertainment or simply KOTD, celebrates its 10th birthday this week since its first event on 8/8/2008 in Toronto when it was founded by host Organik and RyanPVP. Developing in a grassroots manner like most other major battle rap platforms, KOTD started out physically in the streets and has developed to now being staged in large venues across Toronto, California, Calgary, Arizona, Vancouver, Michigan and more. Globally second only to the influential and groundbreaking SMACK / URLTV battle rap platform, KOTD has been particularly influential in the continued proliferation of battle rap internationally through its World Domination events as well as recent forays into the UK with Chalked Out. It has attracted the leading battlers from across North America, England, South Africa, The Philippines, Sweden, Norway, Australia and Scotland.

KOTD has hosted major battles with industry superstars Canibus, Madchild, 360, Conceited and Cassidy, is heavily co-signed by Drake and has seen many of the best from America and beyond head north to take on Canada’s best. Stars born out of KOTD include Charron (Wild ‘N’ Out, BET), Pat Stay, Bender (RIP) as well as many more who developed from the WRC / Grind Time era. Co-hosted battles include from the likes of The Alchemist, Drake, DJ Skee, Raekwon of Wu-Tang Clan, Method Man, MC Hammer, Too $hort, E-40, Sticky Fingaz of Onyx, Maestro Fresh Wes. These have helped contribute to KOTD amassing an impressive 1000+ battles with 708k subscribers and 202 million views on YouTube since 17 August 2018, only behind URL with 841k subscribers and 401 million views since 26 Oct 2009 in English.

KOTD has the highest viewed battle in English language, with LA’s Dizaster vs. Russia’s Oxxxymiron already at 11.8 million views – a figure only surpassed by Filipino and Russian language battles. Led by Organik, Gully TK, Bishop Brigante and Avi Rex, KOTD has pushed both battle rap and hip-hop measurably. Here’s hoping to another decade of battle on KOTD – hopefully captured expertly by Avocado.

Stay tuned for our of Top 10 KOTD battles of the first decade coming soon.

LaVar Ball is never one to not speak his mind. When it comes to President Donald Trump, Ball isn’t a fan. Asked by TMZ Sports if he thinks Trump is racist, Ball’s matter-of-fact reply was “yes…everybody knows that.”

President Trump has been a topic of discussion in NBA circles over the past couple of weeks as Lonzo’s new Lakers teammate – LeBron James – was recently the subject of an inflammatory Tweet from the president.

During a recent sit-down interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, James said that he would “never sit across” from the current president of the United States. James also went on to say that he thinks President Trump is using sports – and athletes – to try to divide people.

Lavar, though, doesn’t care about politics. What he wants is for LeBron to “come here and win for LA.” He also believes that “nobody’s worried about his political stance right now.”

Ball and Trump previously exchanged words last year when the president took credit for getting LiAngelo Ball out of China after LiAngelo and two UCLA basketball players admitted to shoplifting merchandise from a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou.

Days after reports circulated suggesting that Idris Elba is a top pick to play James Bond in the upcoming film, he tweeted: “My name’s Elba, Idris Elba”.

Fans are taking it as a major clue that he could be going to go up against the part when Daniel Craig leaves one year from now. There’ve been gossipy tidbits connecting Idris to the Bond part since 2014, which he’s neither confirmed or denied.

The 45-year-old British actor, best known for his parts in Star Trek, Luther and The Wire, has in the past said he’s too old, to take on the infamous role.

However, he’s never shied far from the hypothesis and has said he “feels like a national treasure” being connected to Bond.

Not long ago, reports said Bond movie boss, Barbara Broccoli said “it is time” to add some flavor to the part. Addressing the Daily Star, director Antoine Fuqua said that Broccoli had disclosed to her that she felt that a Black actor playing the popular role “will happen eventually.”

Issa Rae’s character, Issa, on her hit HBO series, Insecure, has a part-time job as a Lyft driver on the show but the actress revealed that she applied for the job position two years ago.

“I rented a car to write the first episodes [of the second season of the show] in December, and the rental car that I had, I drove it all the way to Malibu,” the Los Angeles told Page Six.

“I bought a full tank [of gas] but I didn’t use it. So I thought, ‘I’m not returning this car with all this gas. I paid for it — I’m just going to lose money.’ ”

Rae revealed that despite the growing success of her show after season 1, she applied to be a Lyft driver but was later denied.

“So I filled out the application. I got the sticker [to go on her car from Lyft] and then I got denied because I had some stupid traffic violation in 2014.”

Although her plan didn’t work out, it became the inspiration for her show.

“I told the writers how I tried to do that and they found it hilarious. And they asked, ‘What if people recognized you?’ But I wasn’t even thinking about that, because Season 2 [of ‘Insecure’] didn’t even come out yet. And it was in Malibu so I thought that I would be OK.”

She added, “There are so many creative people using ride sharing as a means to make some additional income, and Issa definitely needed that extra income.”

Kanye West’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show turned into a philosophy lesson. But one of the most notable parts of the episode was when the host asked Ye, after famously saying George Bush didn’t care about Black people, was he really convinced that Donald Trump “care[s] about black people or any people at all.” The Life of Saint Pablo rapper didn’t answer the question, just like he avoided it when Charlamagne asked him.

Two days later, Kanye says he wasn’t puzzled, he tweeted that he was thinking about his response to the important question and his thoughts were interrupted by a commercial break prompted by Jimmy.

“On Jimmy Kimmel we had a great time having a dialogue. I’m reading that I was stumped by a question,” read one of ‘Ye’s latest tweets. “Let me clarify the click bait. I wasn’t stumped. I wasn’t given a chance to answer the question.”

He continued: “The question was so important I took time to think. And then I was hit with the let’s go to commercial break. That interview showed strong personalities with different opinions having a civil conversation.” But in the end it seems to be all good between ‘Ye and Kimmel.

“I was so happy when I saw Jimmy walk out in the Yeezys,” read another tweet. “That was an olive branch. He lead with love. I appreciate Jimmy and his team. You guys are Jedi’s. much love.”

However, rapper G-Eazy (and a few tweeters) have called attention to that ‘Ye could undoubtedly answer the inquiry on Twitter. “We’re all still waiting on your answer, the floor is yours,” his tweet read.

Of course West took the time out to explain why he avoided the question for a second time, instead of just answering the question.

Star and creator of the hit show Insecure, Issa Rae stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about her upcoming third season on HBO.

During the show, Rae reveals how she used to be afraid of upsetting people in the industry when she was still a newbie to the big screen until she was given some hardcore no-frills advice by some hard hitters in Hollywood.

“I tend to be afraid of upsetting people and that will get you no where
As a show runner and being in the industry—just as a woman. Once your labeled difficult your career is kind of over with and no one wants to work with you. I have a great group of women I talk to, People I admire like Shonda Rhimes, Ava Duvernay, Debbie Allen, Mara Brock…”

The advice I got from them is—‘Don’t be afraid to be a bitch.’

Sony’s producers are highly considering having Idris Elba play the role of James Bond, and we are oh-so-serious this time around. According to The Indepedent, director Antoine Fuqua and producer Barbara Broccoli discussed switching up the physical attributes of the 007 agent and Elba is the number one pick.

In 2014, a hack at Sony revealed that Amy Pascal, then-studio and co-chair, believed that Elba should be the next actor to portray Bond. Anthony Horowitz, author of the Bond novels, disagreed and claimed the actor was “too street” to take on the role which brought national outrage, he later apologized.

Even though the actor’s name has been thrown into the 007 mix, he has denied the rumors for quite some time now. He also suggested the new look of Bond should be a woman. In Hollywood, who knows what’s to happen next. Stay tuned!

Spike Lee has been one of the most notorious filmmakers since as long as we could remember. Always sticking up for the culture and emphasizing the importance of social justice, his new movie is no different. Adding to his list of infamous projects is BlacKkKlansman, where the story revolves around veteran, Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), who was a black police officer who infiltrated the KKK and fooled their leader, David Duke (Topher Grace), into believing he was one of them.

The film takes place back in the ’70s. Washington owns his role as an undercover cop at Colorado Springs. During a student union event, Kwame Ture (Corey Hawkins) gives an exceptional Black Panther speech and it was during this moment that he met a beautiful activist, Patrice (Laura Harrier). She’s not your typical gal, she’s hardcore and dislikes any form of authority so with that being known, Stallworth hid his profession under wraps with hopes of pursuing her.

Harrier told VIBE why the character was so important to her, bringing up the fact that Patrice was influenced by a real life Black Panther activist, Kathleen Cleaver.

“What I really took away was how young she was when this was happening. Reading and seeing her at the height of the Panthers. They seem like these mythical heroes – she was 21, 22 at the time. she was this person that stood up for what she believed, and started to stand up for what she thought was right.”

Lee gave an additional comment when it came to Denzel Washington’s son, John David and his performance. He noted that an audition wasn’t even needed.

“I knew he could do it. I had 100 percent confidence in him. I did not ask him to audition or read for me. I said, ‘Here, let’s do it.’ And he delivered.”

Ron Stallworth decided to punctuate the 70s with a spotlighted exclamation point. The statement spoke loudly in 1979— like the drumbeat under Flash’s “Superrappin.” And in true Hip-Hop fashion, this brave and pioneering Black police officer disrupted the status quo of Colorado Springs.

First he did by being the first African-American hired as a police cadet (later undercover officer) in that city, and then by infiltrating the Klu Klux Klan, becoming a member of the notorious hate group. Of course, his membership made many in that organization sick with embarrassment and made a fool of one of its most obnoxious and arrogant leaders, David Duke.

This really happened…

A Black guy during the end of the 70s,  joined the KKK and had his membership certificate signed by the racist Duke himself. And while almost everyone thinks that their life should be made into a movie… this guy’s life really should’ve be made into a movie. Enter Jordon Peele and the one and only Spike Lee.

Peele (Executive Producer) and Lee (Co-Writer and Director) collaborated to bring this story to the big screen as the award winning BlacKkKlansman that is set to debut today. And while elite film festivals like Cannes and all of the trade ‘zines have boasted how dope this film is… we had to see it for ourselves, assess it through our unique cultural lens and see if it faired well against Spike’s classics like Malcolm X or Do The Right Thing.

We were not about to let “those” folks define what was poppin’ for us.

We saw it.

This movie was everything that we could have possibly hoped for and then some.

Let’s start with the cast.

Taking the lead is John David Washington. Morehouse man (no surprise, Spike’s films are riddled with Maroon Tigers). Former NFL Player (that’s a little shocking… who knew). Cinematic Legacy (His mom is Pauletta Washington and his dad Denzel). None of that matters… well it does but he didn’t need any of those things to validate him and or persuade critics to celebrate him in this role. He just was good. Real good.

Washington finessed this role and made us believe the Spikean interpolation of this biopic. Such strong presence on the screen, he made each and every other character in the film look a little less shiny …and let’s face it he was up there with some vets like Corey Hawkins, Topher Grace or Ryan Eggold that should have eclipsed him.

The Source was able to sit down and talk to leads John David (Ron Stallworth) and Laura Harrier (Patrice) to find out what made this film so special. The was light, yet respectful of the honor to rock these roles. Listen to both these millennials embrace the two-fold history of being in a Spike Lee Joint and acting in this period piece.

On Tuesday [August 7th], Kevin Gates conducted his first interview since being released from jail with Los Angeles radio station, REAL 92.3 LA. Gates sat with Bootleg Kev & DJ Hed doing his best to answer their questions but making it very clear that, in all actuality, he wasn’t prepared to do the interview at that particular time.

After being asked a number of questions Gates specifically stated, “How long we gotta do this? You have to think — I just come out of jail. I didn’t even get time to transition. I feel like I’m getting interrogated.”

Despite the apprehension due to the impromptu interview, Gates did in fact, confirm that he has been working on his upcoming project, Luca Brasi 3. According to Gates, the project is complete but he just doesn’t stop working so things could possibly be added or taken away. Luca Brasi 3 is the sequel to Gates’ two mixtapes, Luca Brasi and Luca Brasi 2 — yet, Luca Brasi 3 will be an album instead.

Stay tuned for an official release date for Kevin Gates’ first album release since his debut album, Islah, back in 2016. You can watch the REAL 92.3 LA interview below.
