New York, NY – Before Wendy Williams became the colorful talk show host she is today, she was knee-deep in radio. During her time on the air, she claimed Diddy once sent the three women from the group Total to assault her. Total was one the signature acts on Bad Boy Records at the time.
She recalled the incident on a recent episode The Wendy Williams Show but didn’t name names.
“Once upon a time, there was music mogul who sent his all-girl group to beat my ass in front the radio station,” she says around the 21:30-minute mark. “I finish my shift, round up my headphones to see everyone lined up on the side the window, looking down at the sidewalk.
“And I’m going downstairs, and my new boyfriend at the time, the bad Kevin … and I go downstairs to see this girl group jump out a gypsy cab to come after me to kick my ass. I’m like, ‘For what?’ You know what I said was true. You all are broke and you were living in projects and that was that.”
Williams assured her audience the story would be played out in her Lifetime documentary. She told the same story several years back on the radio but identified the women by name.
She said “them Total bitches” — “three fighting broads” — did take a taxi to confront her while her coworkers encouraged it. Her then-boyfriend Kevin Hunter ultimately stopped the fight.
Aaron Paul Compares The Breaking Bad Ending To The Game OF Thrones Ending | El Camino – Extra Butter
Aaron Paul is back as Jesse Pinkman in a new Netflix movie called El Camino A Breaking Bad Movie. The movie starts right where Breaking Bad left off with Pinkman’s dramatic escape from captivity that we see close out the Felina episode. In El Camino Jesse must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future. This gripping thriller is written and directed by Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad and believe it or not while Vince has directed 5 episodes of Breaking Bad, 5 episodes of Better Call Saul and 2 episodes of The X Files, this is his feature film directorial debut.
I had the opportunity to sit down with Aaron Paul to talk about El Camino and reprising the role of Pinkman, The role that garnered multiple awards and Breaking Bad as a whole garnered over 50 nominations. Aaron recalls “I get a call from Vince, as I was walking the streets of New York, and he says I have an idea for a movie, I want to tell the story of what happens to Jesse after he escapes the compound.” Vince would go on to ask Aaron if he would be interested in this role, “I said of course. I say this all the time, I would follow Vince into a fire.”
Paul goes on to explain how much the character of Jesse Pinkman means to him, referring to him as a real person and ending with how he loves the guy. Breaking Bad is widely considered the best show to ever air on television with a lot of people thinking it’s only rival is Game Of Thrones. I asked Aaron about the Game Of Thrones finale and the backlash it got vs the perfect ending of Breaking Bad.
He opened up saying, “The thing is people, don’t want good things to end. So everyone is looking t this art under a big magnifying glass so they are so picky. But it is very hard to nail the landing.” Adding how the Breaking Bad team did an excellent job of wrapping up the show. He also goes on to say he loves how Game Of Thrones ended saying he watched the last episode 3 times. Then naming the second to last episode as “some of the greatest hour and a half of cinema I’ve ever seen in my life.”
Now those are big words.
Buffalo, NY – There are two sides to every story — and the city Buffalo is no different. For those who have never set foot on the holy grounds that birthed the almighty Griselda conglomerate, they’ve primarily had a singular and consistent narrative life in the city.
Rapper 7xvethegenius is looking to diversify that, with the release her opus 7xve is Love, which
“Buffalo is a huge ghetto, and all that grimy shit certainly exists, but there is another side to the story,” she tells HipHopDX. “A more hopeful side, the side that creates Keisha Plum poems and Rick James pizzazz.”
7xve has been bubbling for a while now, coming up in proximity to Griselda — most recently hitting the road to support longtime friend Benny The Butcher.
“We’ve had multiple talks throughout the years just about how to get in the doors the industry … We both knew as soon as somebody figured it out, it would be over,” she says. “Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, and Benny figured it out, now I gotta introduce the world to a different lens the same city you’ve heard a lot about from the Griselda Family.”

My focus level is different. Coming back to Buffalo after hitting these shows is doing something else to me. I was gonna start dropping projects in April to get yall into where I'm going musically. But I have something to say NOW I gotta set the tone first. Peace to @getbenny for changing the standard. I'm on my way to the studio as I type this. New music coming this month… 📷 @likerook
Her 10-song follow-up to April’s The Calm Before mixtape was purposely titled 7xve is Love to help people understand the spelling her name. “I am the definition what love is,” she says, breaking down the project’s mantra.
“I wanted to create a body work that represents every dimension how I perceive love to be. Love is calm, love is aggressive, love is playful and upbeat … but, love is also a real feeling and connection to the soul,” she explains. “That’s what I wanted this project to invoke: all the feelings what love is or is perceived to be.”
Beyond the conceptual vision, she also points to the fact that as a female MC (a term she suggests should be retired), she feels compelled to represent others like her from her hometown accurately. It’s a niche she suggests isn’t currently being filled.
“I appreciate the content, sound and style other rappers, I really do, but there is a whole other existence and side women out here, that to me, hasn’t been correctly represented, according to my perspective,” she says.
“The ‘on the grind, high achieving, feminine, educated, from the hood to the CEO, money-making’ type woman. We need a soundtrack for our lives too. One that’s not overly conscious, and we can listen to while we roll-up. That’s what this project is.”
Ultimately, the project is meant to etch her name into the tapestry Buffalo’s elite. Or, as she confidently labels it, “A calm introduction to the highest quality lyrical street art,” from the city’s east side.
“Conway always tells me it’s my turn, that they opened the doors for me and others from the city to come through,” she notes. “I’m here to introduce the world to the rest the story.”
