Quavo & Saweetie Avoid Criminal Charges in Elevator Fight Incident

Quavo and Saweetie have managed to avoid any criminal charges against them in the elevator fight incident, the video of which leaked in March.Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the case was referred to the L.A. City Attorney’s Office, which declined to file any charges in the matter. Based on the evidence, which is a surveillance video of the then couple fighting in an elevator in an apartment complex in North Hollywood a year ago, there is no likelihood of any conviction happening.Earlier reports suggested that cops wanted to talk to the both of them over the footage. Both Quavo and Saweetie have not made a big deal out of the video surfacing, which tells us that it was just an escalated situation between a couple rather than a harmful altercation.“We had an unfortunate situation almost a year ago that we both learned and moved on from. I haven’t physically abused Saweetie and have real gratitude for what we did share overall,” Quavo said at the time. “This unfortunate incident happened a year ago, while we have reconciled since then and moved past this particular disagreement, there were simply too many other hurdles to overcome in our relationship and we have both since moved on,” Saweetie’s spokesperson said. “I kindly ask that everyone respect my privacy during this time.”“I’ve learned that the world doesn’t stop for anybody,” Saweetie, 27, told W magazine in an interview released on Wednesday. “And it’s for sure not going to stop for me just because I got my heart broke. I was grateful to be doing the photoshoot. I was like, I can deal with all this later.”

The hip-hop community has united to support the rap icon, from fans and followers, to friends and family like E-40, Warren G and LL Cool J.

In honor of his first birthday on Thursday (May 6), the Dream Chasers rapper has revealed the first full photo of his baby boy, Czar. The birthday boy looks dapper in his designer fit including a Burberry bucket hat and jeans while wearing two icy chains around his neck.

Kendrick Lamar, DJ Khaled, Russ & More Announced as Investors in MixedByAli’s EngineEars

TDE’s acclaimed engineer MixedByAli launched his EngineEars platform last year in order to transform the way engineers, songwriters and producers run their businesses and get work in the industry.Today, the 31-year old engineer, real name Derek Ali, has announced the completion of a $1 Million pre-seed round of investing. And there are some recognizable names who have shown faith in the concept.They include: Kendrick Lamar, Roddy Ricch, Russ, Mustard, DJ Khaled, YG, Ella Mai, Bas, Smino, Masego, Cardogotwings, Young Guru, Kenny Beats, Ibrahim Hamad of Dreamville, La Mar Taylor of XO, Meko Yohannes of 10Summers, and indie-record label EQT. The investments are led by Slauson & Co., founded by Austin Clements and Ajay Relan.“For over two years I’ve been taking my time really understanding the real problems in my industry. From all of this research, what I/ve realized is that the problem is there are minimal tools provided to audio engineers to set us up for success, and very little access for artist and labels to search and instantly book talented engineers for their projects. This is why we created the solution EngineEars,” said Ali in a statement.“From acquiring clients and scheduling new projects, managing file storage and project archiving, to tracking payments, EngineEars provides audio engineers with the tools to operate their business whilst democratizing access to high quality engineering for artists globally,” he added. “Audio engineers exist behind the curtain and are put to the side too often as the independent music industry grows. This is why we raised our pre-seed, to hire the best talent and develop the best platform for music creatives.”EngineEars’ senior management team is madde of COO Dan Maynard (Co-founder of the Canadian Apparel Company, Noble Gentlemen Trading), CTO Luke Sorenson (former Senior Software Engineer at Google), and Market Advisor Jacob Shamberge.

Trey Songz Sued for Allegedly Punching Bartender

5 seconds ago

Trey Songz may be off the hook in his fight with cops, but he’s facing new allegations.
The R&B star is being sued for battery by a bartender at the Hollywood Palladium, who says he was working at the bar during Cardi B’s Fashion Nova launch party on May 9, 2019 when Trey jumped on the bar to sit and watch the show.
In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the bartender claims Trey ignored his warning not to sit on the bar, so he put his hand on Trey’s back to get his attention. That’s when the “Bottoms Up” singer allegedly turned around and punched the bartender in the head with a closed fist. He then looked at the other bartenders blankly and continued watching the show.
The bartender claims he suffered physical pain and emotional and psychological injury as a result of the alleged attack, and is suing for damages.
Last week, it was reported that Trey won’t face criminal charges for his physical altercation with cops at an NFL playoff game in Kansas City earlier this year. Trey was arrested, but the prosecutor decided not to file charges against him due to insufficient evidence.

He was different, too. He’s a great guy, though. Wayne, too.”
Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti may not have been around as long, but they had an undeniable impact on Trippie. “Listening to Uzi’s shit back in 2015-16, that shit was different,” he said. “And Carti, at that time.
