We all know that the world of hip hop is full of surprises of the good, bad and the ratchet kind. And the past few days have seen nothing different. Here’s a recap of notable incidents from the interwebs.
Tyga crashes his Lamborghini! The 23-year-old YMCMB rapper seems to be fine after the fender bender, but did he really have to Instagram a photo of his $387,000 car sitting on the side of an embankment? The caption reads “Just crashed my lambo.
Thank God for the seatbelt.” Comments on the photo ranged from “Are you okay” to “Money can’t buy you a brain.” Looks to me, he was just asking to be criticized. According to Yahoo! News, Tyga’s driving record is pretty spotty. Back in January, he was arrested during a Vegas traffic stop after a warrant was discovered. Here’s hoping that Tyga’s young money doesn’t cause too many problems in 2013.
Trey Songz was arrested for making it rain in the strip club! Apparently this incident happened at his album release party back in August, giving Trey a little more than poor album sales to worry about. He was allegedly throwing money at a woman and some of it hit her in the eye while celebrating at New York strip club. He was arrested November 1, and just had his first hearing. He’s due back before the judge in February.
Cassidy goes hard for “Condom Style” endorsement deal with Trojan! Anyone who has been anywhere near a TV, radio or computer in the last several months has come across Gangnam Style, by Korean rapper PSY. At last look, just so I could link the video for those who might have lived under a rock, the view count stood at 992,802,047.
All those views have inspired many a parody but Cassidy took it to the next level with a freestyle advocating safe sex. I chuckled all the way through it, but I totally appreciated the encouragement to protect one’s health. One of Cass’s biggest haters, Meek Mill took it to Instagram calling it “the worst song in the history of rapping.” I think Meek is just mad because…
Meek Mill can’t get on the (tour) bus! The Maybach Music tour was cancelled not too long ago due to the group of artists moving to Atlantic Records. However, that was truly the least of Meek’s worries. Just a few days ago, he was grounded from leaving Philly by a judge.
The order stems from his 2008 legal troubles and prevents him from attending any of the performances that he had scheduled, including trips to Africa and St. Thomas. As of December 18, the court has denied the request to lift the ban for performances. Dreams and Nightmares indeed, sir.
Eve wants you to know “She Bad Bad!” That’s right. Yes, you read that correctly. The pit bull in a skirt is back and she bad. A teaser for the track’s music video surfaced a few hours ago and it looks like Ms. E-v-e will be gracing the rap scene with her presence again very soon. The album, entitled Lip Lock will be released some time in 2013.
