Nicki Minaj was the special musical guest for Saturday Night Lives season Finale. She hit the staged dressed as the videogame character that her current single & alter ego is named after. She brought snippets of her Chun-Li video to life onstage.
This is one of her best recent performances in our opinion.
You’ve been warned. Following “Bodak Yellow” and “Bartier Cardi,” Cardi B is putting her man on blast with her third single “Be Careful,” which seems to be inspired by her real life romance with Offset.
The Bronx rapper, who is rumored to be pregnant with fiancé Offset’s child, calls out her man over his infidelity. “I wanna get married, like the Curries, Steph and Ayesha shit,” she raps. “But we more like Belly, Tommy and Keisha shit / Gave you TLC, you wanna creep and shit / Poured out my whole heart to a piece of shit.”
Over the Vinylz, Boi-1da, and Frank Dukes production, she warns him not to mess with her heart. “It’s not a threat, it’s a warning / Be careful with me,” she raps, while borrowing lyrics from Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor.”
Cardi’s highly-anticipated debut album Invasion of Privacy arrives April 6. The following day, she will perform on “SNL” and Coachella later in the month.
“Yeah but you know basically it was kinda mutual,” said Cam’ron. “For me it just wasn’t fun anymore, I met JuJu in 2002, she was my friend before we started being serious. That was my homegirl and everything was fun. Once Instagram came out, I”m the one promoting her on Instagram, marketing her, showing her body, showing how beautiful she is without being too distasteful about it—[but] basically, it stopped being fun.
Then it started getting serious. ‘Why you following her?!’ ‘Why you liking this person picture?!’ That was my best friend for years and I think she felt that way too.”
JuJu and Roxxi’s beef apparently started when JuJu’s sister commented on Cam being seen out with one of his friends, a white woman named Cole. Roxxi jumped in to defend the woman and JuJu also jumped in leading Roxxi to completely fabricate rumors she was sleeping with Cam.
“Hell no, that’s my homegirl. Word to my son, I never touched her, kissed her, nothing,” said Cam’ron. “Roxxi came at JuJu and started acting like we were f*** to make JuJu mad. They [Roxxi and JuJu] know each other, we all hang out. Everybody knows I’m not f**** Roxxi, JuJu knows I’m not f**** Roxxi.”
He also added that he didn’t try to stop their public beef because he didn’t want to get in between two women arguing and added that JuJu’s next boyfriend will have “the best girl in the world.”
Oh Cam, luckily it looks like JuJu’s doing just fine without him.
Prodigy of Mobb Deep has died at age 42. A publicist for the group confirmed to XXL that he was found unconscious this morning and has passed away.
Mobb’s publicist sent XXL the following statement: “It is with extreme sadness and disbelief that we confirm the death of our dear friend Albert Johnson, better known to millions of fans as Prodigy of legendary NY rap duo Mobb Deep. Prodigy was hospitalized a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis. As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth. The exact causes of death have yet to be determined. We would like to thank everyone for respecting the family’s privacy at this time.” For his entire career, Prodigy was a master wordsmith, handling the lyrical heft for Mobb Deep while Havoc paved the way as one of New York’s premier producers. Now we will forever mourn the loss of one of the greatest rappers of all time.
We send our condolences to P’s family, friends and colleagues.
