Aminé Explains Why He Disagrees With Tory Lanez Saying Rap Is In A Horrible Place

(AllHipHop News) Adam Aminé Daniel was set up to be one of the next big Hip Hop stars when he was chosen for the 2017 XXL Freshman Class. After dropping the Good for You album in 2017 and the OnePointFive mixtape in 2018, Aminé was relatively quiet in 2019.The 25-year-old rapper is now back with "Shimmy." Aminé premiered the new single on Apple Music, and he spoke to Lowkey on the streaming platform about another body of work potentially arriving soon.
"I definitely, definitely, definitely have a project coming. That’s a fact. That’s the most information I can give," offered Aminé. "I feel like I’m here to stay now. I feel like I paid my dues. I’m still gonna pay my dues for the rest of my life. I’m not trying to shy away from being humble in any way. I think that’s super important. But on a fun tip, I do believe I’m in my bag."

Lowkey also asked the Portland native about Tory Lanez's comments from November 2019 where the Canadian said he felt like rap is in a horrible place at the moment. Aminé responded by name-dropping a squad of lyricists from Buffalo, a veteran from Long Island, and a crossover megastar from the Bronx.
"I really f*ck with Tory. I like his music a lot. But I kind of disagree. I think Hip Hop is in a really cool place right now," Aminé told Lowkey. "Like Griselda and Roc Marciano are taking over, and it's like dope to see that because you don’t get to see that happen a lot."
The "Caroline" hitmaker added, "Fans and the general public are getting smarter. They’re just out here, honestly, open to all kinds of genres. Like a kid could be listening to Griselda and then Cardi [B] in the same playlist... I think Hip Hop is in a good place. That’s my opinion. I listen to all these guys."

Megan Thee Stallion Reveals Tentative Release Date for Debut Album ‘Suga’

Megan Thee Stallion has been working on her debut album Suga for the past few months with Kehlani, SZA, Pharrell and Juicy J being some of the confirmed contributors.


While her single ‘B.I.T.C.H.‘ continues to rise up on the charts, she is featured on the cover of latest issue of Rollingstone alongside SZA and Normani. In a special and separate feature, Megan has also sat down with the publication for an interview about her new music, finishing college, her rise to success, passing of her mother, the crazy rumors about her private life on the internet and more.

During the chat, Megan reveals that she’s hoping to release her album Suga on May 2nd which is her mom’s birthday. That falls on a Saturday so perhaps May 1st can work for her. Check out a few excerpts below. The full feature is here.
On working with Pharrell:
“I would go in and write a song and the beat would sound one way, but by the time he gets done to it, it’s a whole new song,” Megan says. “I had never worked with a producer before that goes back in on his own beats and changes a bunch of stuff, like post-production. ‘Wow, these beats don’t even be done? That’s crazy.’ ”

On trying to expand her sound:
“When I started making music, I was making music that I liked,” Megan says. “I’m making ratchet shit, turn up shit. I’m doing me. I wasn’t thinking about anybody else in my music. I wasn’t thinking about kids, and I’m not thinking about other races. I wasn’t thinking about anybody but me and my brand, but when I go and I see these other artists, and when I go to some of my friend’s shows, and I’m looking at who’s in the crowd, and I’m looking at even my god-sister, they’re six, seven, eight, and they’re singing my songs. I’m like, ‘Okay. Let me give y’all something a little deeper, because I definitely want to grow with my music. I want to grow up with my music. That was me making music as a freshman in college.”

On G-Eazy and other rumors:
“These are my immediate girlfriends, and we all have a lot of guy friends,” she says. “But now, it’s just a public thing. People think that if I’m hanging out with anybody, it got to be, ‘Oh, they’re having sex.’ Why can’t I just be turnt up with my friend tonight?” she asks. “They’re just doing this shit because they want some attention, and I cannot feed into it. I have a little anxiety, because I’m still going through the grief from losing my mother and my grandmother. Then I have to get on the internet and see these motherfuckers talking about me? That shit really be pissing me off sometimes.”

Boosie Badazz Reveals His Mom's Reaction To His Comments About Dwyane Wade's Transgender Daughter Zaya

(AllHipHop News) Torrence "Boosie Badazz" Hatch Jr. was one of the most vocal complainers about Dwyane Wade's decision to support his 12-year-old child's gender transition. The Baton Rouge-raised rapper claimed Wade went "too f*cking far" and begged the NBA great not to "cut his d*ck off."The backlash to Boosie's comments about Zaya Wade came almost instantly. Critics called the 37-year-old recording artist transphobic and accused him of perpetuating hatred toward a minor.
Baller Alert caught up with Boosie to get his thoughts on the negative reactions to his previous statements. Apparently, Hatch's own parent had something to say about his recent actions on Instagram.
“That’s just how I felt. People gotta understand it’s how I feel," said Boosie. "Even my mama got on my ass yesterday. My mama called me early in the morning and got on my ass, talking about, ‘Stay off social media! That’s their family. You stay out people’s business!'"
He added, "I was just speaking how I felt. Everybody got their own opinions in life. Everyone feels a certain type of way about certain things. I just sometimes be the one to talk about it. When the kids involved, it’s tender to my heart.”

When asked if it ever okay to tell someone else how to parent their child, Boosie responded, "Not really, but when I feel you wrong, you wrong. People have told me how to parent my children when I was wrong." 
The "Wipe Me Down" rhymer also addressed his call for a boycott of Planet Fitness after he accused a particular location in Georgia of barring him from entering. Boosie suggested his opinion about the Wade family was the reason he was kicked out of the gym.
"I feel like they're gaining up on me now. I should've shut my ass up," stated Boosie about the Planet Fitness situation. A company spokesperson told People, "Planet Fitness does not tolerate harassment or discrimination of any kind. In this instance, a guest was asked to leave after refusing to comply with gym policies and harassing club staff."

High-Key Details: The disturbing footage has made its rounds online and shows six-year-old Kaia Rolle being arrested.

The police body camera videos are disturbing. They show two Orlando police officers arresting 6-year-old Kaia Rolle as she pleads with officers for a “second chance.””Help me,” Kaia says between sobs as her hands are restrained with a zip tie.”You can tell me what happened in the car, OK?” one officer responds as he begins to walk her outside.”I don’t want to go to the police car,” Kaia said while she wept. “Please.” (CNN)

Wait, There’s More: The officers reportedly received a call to deal with Rolle after she allegedly had a tantrum toward school staff members.

In a police report, authorities said police were responding to a report that the 6-year-old had “battered three staff members by kicking and punching them” at her school, the Lucious and Emma Nixon Academy in Orlando. The child’s grandmother has previously told local media in Florida that her granddaughter suffers from a sleep disorder that the family was working to resolve, which was why she was experiencing some behavioral issues. (NBC News)

Before You To: To make matters worse, Kaia had a mugshot taken at an off-site location.

Kaia was processed at a juvenile facility and had to use a step stool for her mug shot, Kirkland told the paper. State attorney Aramis D. Ayala said after the incident that her office never intended to move forward with charges against Kaia. “I refuse to knowingly play any role in the school-to-prison pipeline at any age,” she said afterward. (Washington Post)

Jay-Z, Yo Gotti & Team ROC File Second Lawsuit Against Mississippi Department Of Corrections

(AllHipHop News) Team Roc, the philanthropic arm of Roc Nation, is continuing its legal fight against the poor prison conditions in Mississippi. Hip Hop recording artists Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and Mario “Yo Gotti” Mims are again backing a second civil lawsuit against the MS Department of Corrections.Jay-Z, Yo Gotti, and Team ROC are seeking a court order that forces the MSDOC to immediately address the deadly situation at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman. The plaintiffs are also calling on officials to develop a plan that will eliminate the health and safety risks within 90 days.
The lawsuit includes over 150 inmates giving firsthand accounts on their deplorable circumstances in the Mississippi prison system. There have been complaints of lack of clean water, adequate food, electricity, heat, access to healthcare, and clothing.
Some of the accounts from inmates include:
“Many times, the food is adulterated with rat feces, cockroaches, rocks, bird droppings, and other foreign matter.”
“The toilets routinely back up and flood the prison cells, which allows fecal matter, urine, and water to cover the floors and drain out into the housing unit’s common space…the portable water system at Parchman is contaminated with human feces, presumably from the sewer system.”
“Prisoner-on-prisoner violence is rampant, and, at times, is facilitated by corrupt guards seeking to curry favor with inmates. Plaintiffs have witnessed instances where guards have provided cell keys to inmates so they could assault, and sometimes kill, other inmates.”
“Many inmates, including Plaintiffs, are in dire need of medical care for cancer, lupus, serious heart defects, Rheumatoid Arthritis, deteriorating joints and muscles, swollen prostate glands, and open, festering wounds.”
“[Inmates] insert their own catheters, treat their own stab wounds, vomit up blood, teeter on the verge of diabetic comas, and suffer through seizures without medical care. Even a broken neck can go without treatment at Parchman, with the inmate being left to suffer through his injury while sleeping on exposed, steel bedsprings with no mattress.”
“So bad is the medical care at Parchman that inmates have resorted to lighting fires in conditions of total confinement, where escape from smoke and flames is impossible, simply to draw attention to emergent medical issues occurring in the housing units.”
Additionally, the conditions inside Parchman have been documented on video by people living in the facility. On February 26, Roc Nation released an 18-minute Parchman Prison Public Service Announcement with footage from inside the penitentiary.
Since December 2019, at least nine inmate deaths have occurred at Parchman as a result of suicides, homicides, and miscellaneous cases. There have been at least eighteen deaths throughout the Mississippi prison system over that time.

BLACK-ISH Star Deon Cole Shares Some Low-Key Hilarious Austin Powers + Selena Memes After Cringe Bell Bottoms Outfit

Hollywood actor Deon Cole is starting to realize the Internet is really undefeated. The popular comic has come forward to applaud social media for coming at his neck with some playful memes inspired by his recent bell bottoms outfit.

Big Facts: On Wednesday, Cole hit up his Instagram page with some epic jokes.

View this post on Instagram Lmfao!!!! Now I hate y’all for making these. Lolololol!!! y’all can kiss my ass!!! JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA A post shared by Deon Cole (@deoncole) on Feb 26, 2020 at 12:43pm PST

Whoever put self hate in black people? WON!!! We have to find out the origin of this problem, BREAK THE CYCLE! We can’t keep sweeping this problem under the rug. This is bigger than my bell bottoms. #justakidfromthechi #itsbiggerthanmybellbottoms A post shared by Deon Cole (@deoncole) on Feb 26, 2020 at 2:08pm PST

High-Key Details: On Tuesday, Cole jumped on IG with over 15 minutes of footage addressing the hate his fashion statement recently created.

“What’s up y’all, I want to talk about this real quick – first of all let me say this, I am a comic, number one. I like to have live moments, I like things to be live. Any event I’ve ever been to, I have a track record. You can see a track record of outfits I’ve worn. I’ve had horseshoes, seahorses, all kinds of prints, all kinds of colors – I’ve always had the balls to wear what I wanted to wear and with that comes opinions. Now everyone is entitled to their opinion, everybody, I accept that – if you want to call my outfit the worst outfit you’ve ever seen in your life, you have that opinion. You’re supposed to. You ain’t supposed to like everything. … The part that I’m tripping over about this is the hate. The hate that I have been receiving because I wore a bell bottom valor velvet suit has been unreal. I’ve been told I’ve been called a ‘b*tch a** n*gga, f*ggot,’ I’ve been told I’m gonna get my a** whooped. … Motherf*ckers have denounced me from being funny – because of a suit. It wasn’t even a whole suit.”

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Deon Cole (@deoncole) on Feb 25, 2020 at 9:11am PSTWait, There’s More: The Chicago native also explained his love for the disco era as the motivation behind his outfit.

“Why was it so far-fetched for me to pay homage to an era that I love through Gucci, wearing a suit, a bell bottom suit that led y’all to go, ‘He gay,’ he a f*g,’ and all this other stuff. I’ve got tough skin, I’m a comic – but the hatred that you all spewed was crazy to me. And it’s always against our own kind – it’s crazy how you can look at me and put all your anger into me – but won’t put your anger into the right situations. It’s like a mismanagement of anger.”

Before You Go: Deon’s outfit initially sparked an internal war of words between himself and troll legend Snoop Dogg in his Instagram comments section.
