Street Bud broke down after Dupri gave him the fifth spot on the Hit List.  His mom, Cori wiped away his tears and reminded him that he’s very talented.  Lil Bri was also disappointed and thought she deserved better than the fourth spot on the Hit List.

Ricci Bitti struggled in her studio session with Keke but she still managed to earn the third spot on the Hit List.  RapUnzel’s mother, Tiki thought she deserved the number 1 spot on the list but Jordan’s performance was amazing.

Jay-Z is not the only popular artist Tony has worked with.  On The Rap Game, Jermaine Dupri revealed that Royster has also worked with Rihanna.  Dupri is doing a great job showing kids that there are numerous music related careers available.  Everyone wants to be Beyonce but Tony Royster Jr. is proof that you can have a successful career as a musician without being as famous as Beyonce.

Drake And Meek Mill Squash Beef – Family Feud Remix

Drake teamed up with Lil Wayne for a remix to Jay Z’s “Family Feud.” Drake squashes his beef with Meek Mill in his verse: “I need paper long like “A Milli” verse, or too long like a sentence from a Philly judge.  F*** is the point in all the beefing when we really blood? Nobody wins when the family feuds.”

Judge Genece E. Brinkley

Drake is referring to Judge Genece E. Brinkley.  On November 6, 2017, she sent Meek Mill to jail for two-to-four years.  This is the first time Drake has delivered positive lyrics about Meek since their beef.  In the last few months, Drake has been using social media to show that he no longer has beef with Meek.  In July, Drizzy liked an Instagram post that listed Meek’s credentials.

At a recent concert, Drake gave a fan holding a “Free Meek Mill” sign a shout out.  Jay Z’s positive message in “Family Feud” is working.  Jay has exchanged shot with numerous rappers throughout his career and understands that “nobody wins when the family feuds.”

In Drake’s 2010 track “Light Up”, Jay warned the Toronto rapper about beefing with other emcees: “Drake, here’s how they gon’ come at you, with silly rap feuds, tryin’ to distract you.” Earlier this year, Kanye West went on a rant explaining that Jay blocked the release of Drake’s “Pop Style” featuring Kanye because Jay was upset about Drake and Meek’s beef.
The following video shows a teaser of Jay Z’s original version of “Family Feud.”

It looks like Jay Z is getting his way.  I would love to hear Drake and Meek Mill on a track once Meek is released from prison.  I’m also still waiting for Jay and Kanye to squash their beef and release some new music.  Jay should listen to his own advice because, “Nobody wins when the family feuds.”

Andre From Empire Singing

In episode 9 of Empire‘s fourth season, “Slave To Memory” we’ll finally get to hear Andre Lyon sing! The video below shows him performing “Superstar.” The song was originally written in 1969 by Bonnie Bramlett, Leon Russell and Delaney Bramlett.  “Superstar” has been a hit for numerous artists including Cher and The Carpenters.

The first season of Fox’s record-breaking hip-hop drama series showed us how talented Trai Byers was as an actor.  We instantly fell in love with the character as we watched him struggle through depression.

It’s difficult for Andre to get the attention he deserves with Lucious, Jamal and Hakeem being music sensations and Cookie being sensational period.  Many fans of the show don’t know that Trai has a beautiful voice!

The following video shows him performing Stevie Wonder’s “Lately”:

The show’s season 2 finale just aired but we already miss Trai Byers! Let’s take a look at his Top 10 Instagram pics to celebrate how wonderful he is!

6. When he’s having sweet dream.

5. When he looks into her eyes.

I love you my Queen. I call you Queen because that’s what you are… simply, subtly, elegantly, magnanimously. You use the kingdom of your heart to house others – The crown on your head to show humility, that it takes a humbling of self, a servant, to truly represent nobility – The shimmering gown of you to reveal that the most beautiful clothes you will ever possess can never be be judged from the outside, but the inside. To simply say that I’m proud of you is an understatement, I’m proud of your life. You’re not merely the woman the world expects to see, but the woman that God designed you to be. It motivates me more than my words can express. You are real but you are also magic, and no “how”, “why”, “when”, or “where” can claim or explain the existence that is you…only Grace can do that, and Grace comes from God! I jump for joy at the thought of what lies ahead for you! And no matter what storm, frustration, attack, or misunderstanding, know that my feet are planted next to yours forever! I love you baby…with every particle of my existence. Happy Birthday Queen @ladygracebyers

A Ghetto Christmas Carol – XXXTentacion New EP

XXXTentacion just released his new EP, A Ghetto Christmas Carol.  EP is short for extended play which usually includes more songs than a single but less tracks than a full album.  XXXTentacion explained that he released the EP as an early Christmas present because his freedom is being tested.

XXXTentacion recently revealed that he’s facing 7 new charges for witness tampering.  The rapper asked his fans to show up to court on December 15, 2017 to support him.  In October of 2016, the rapper was charged with aggravated battery, false imprisonment and domestic battery by strangulation.

Details of the abuse leaked online and if the allegations are true, X will most likely be sentenced to at least a year in jail.  X’s celebrity status could help him or hurt him.  In 2011, Floyd Mayweather Jr. was sentenced to 90 days in jail after he pled guilty to battery.

One of Mayweather’s sons, Koraun gave a statement to the police.  Koraun’s statement was just as disturbing as the testimony from X’s victim.  Koraun told the police that he saw his father hit and kick his mother.  The victim in X’s case claims that X kicked, slapped and head-butted her.

Is Joyner Lucas Black? – Race (Video)

Joyner Lucas is half black.  His father is black and his mother is white.  In the track below, the rapper explains how difficult his youth was because of his ethnicity.  Joyner broke the Internet with the video for his new song “I’m Not Racist.”  The video features a white man with a “Make America Great Again” hat on dropping N bombs left and right.
The video is alarming at first.  Joyner sounds like Eminem and the white person wearing the Donald Trump hat appears to be delivering the offensive lyrics.  The song is about not feeling sorry for black people who complain about slavery.  He pretends to be a racist and uses powerful lyrics to get his point across.

Lucas pokes fun at the “I’m not racist” phrase that racist people love using.  Anytime you feel the urge to use that phrase please think again.  The person you’re speaking to has most likely heard the phrase a countless number of times so it’s pointless.
Who Is Joyner Lucas? I'm Not Racist
Who Is Joyner Lucas? I’m Not Racist
Joyner Lucas uses his lyrics to tell stories.  While many rappers avoid the current racial divide, Joyner doesn’t hesitate to discuss it through his controversial songs.  The easiest way to make a problem worse is to ignore it so we can all learn a valuable lesson from Joyner Lucas: Never hush your voice for someone’s comfort.  Speak your mind and make people uncomfortable.

Is Janice Freeman Transgender?

The rumor that Janice Freeman is transgender is false.  She was born a female and is still a female.  Janice performed Collective Soul’s hit song “Shine” in the last episode of The Voice.  During the first half of her performance, Janice was drowned out by the band.  She has a strong voice so I wasn’t expecting the band to over power her.

Janice Freeman was born on June 9, 1985 in Covina, California.  She has been through ups and downs throughout her life.  She gave birth to her daughter, Hannah, in 2006.  Hannah’s father sadly passed away from cancer when Hannah was only 4-years-old.  Janice had to be strong as a single parent, explaining her determination to win the competition.

In 2012, Janice was diagnosed with cervical cancer.  Many of us complain about spilled milk.  Hannah’s father died from cancer and then 2 years later, her mother was diagnosed with cancer.  The next time you feel like you can’t handle one of life’s obstacles, think about what Janice and Hannah have been through.

Janice fought cervical cancer and survived.  Now she is fighting to survive this competition so she can provide a solid foundation for Hannah’s future.

Who Is Prince’s Next Of Kin?

Prince’s younger sister, Tyka, was seen on episode 4 of Empire‘s fourth season, “Bleeding War.” She attended Bella’s Prince-inspired birthday party.  Cookie asks if Prince celebrated birthdays.  Tyka removes her shades and shrugs her shoulders.

We recently published an article on how Prince could have died from the flu, especially considering the fact he was in Atlanta.  We also published an article on Prince being a Christian.


Prince’s next of kin is his younger sister, Tyka Nelson.  Tyka is Prince’s only full-blooded sibling.  Tyka and Prince have 3 half-sisters and 4 half-brothers.

Tyka was teased as a kid and it crushed her confidence.  City Pages reports that Tyka began writing songs when she was 10 and started smoking weed when she was 13.

Yesterday Tyka thanked fans outside of Prince’s Paisley Park Studios.  She told Prince’s fans how much he loved them.
