Filed by amkr03eydamkr03eyd

Drake and New Orleans bounce artist Big Freedia are facing a new lawsuit.

TMZ reports Samuel Nicholas III, who goes by Sam Skully, claims the Toronto superstar used his beat for “In My Feelings” featuring Freedia. Nicholas is also accusing Drake jacking his beat for Drizzy’s massive hit, “Nice For What”

According to court documents, Nicholas believes they used a sample from his 2000 cut “Roll Call” but never asked for permission or fered any money.

Nicholas says he originally released the beat on a CD almost 20 years ago and didn’t realize it had been stolen until “In My Feelings” and “Nice For What” started dominating Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Nicholas is seeking damages from Asylum Records, Cash Money Records and Republic Records. Drake hasn’t responded to the suit publicly.

Big Rich Town: Lala Anthony, Joseph Sikora & Lela Loren Talk Paying 50 Cent, ‘Power’ Final Season & More

Filed by Alvera CastaldoAlvera Castaldo

It’s a bittersweet time for Power fans these days. On one hand, their favorite show is finally returning after a year long wait. On the other end, this is the last and finale season of the hit STARZ show.

That’s right. Season 6 of POWER, — which airs this Sunday, August 25th — will be the last time we get to see Ghost, Tommy, Lakeisha, and Tasha run the streets of New York and commit crime together. But fortunately for viewers, some of the show’s characters may get a chance to tell their own stories once the season wraps.

According to STARZ:

Season 6 brings us to the end of what we know is just the first chapter of the Power story. However, as one chapter comes to an end, another will begin. [Creator] Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent have created a world rich with complex and dynamic characters and there are a number of stories we plan to tell as we continue to explore and expand the Power universe.”

I got a chance to chat with Lala Anthony (who plays Lakeisha), Joseph Sikora (who plays Tommy) and Lela Loren (who plays Angela) as they dished on everything from their feelings about the show ending to advice for folks who owe 50 Cent money. As for Lala, the 38-year old actress says the Power cast was like family behind the scenes, and she’ll miss coming to work with them.

“It’s sad that it’s coming to an end. You get use to the characters, you get use to people behind the characters. You become family. It’s more than just coming to work and acting and leaving. You become part of each other’s lives. In that way you’re sad it’s ending, but real friendships don’t end because of a show ending. You hope that these friendships will continue after.”

As for folks who’ve been famously called out for owing 50 Cent money, Joseph Sikora says pay up! As for who’s #teamTommy or #teamghost, check out the full video above to see what the cast had to say. Catch Power:The Final Betrayal when it airs on STARS, August 25th.


#DXCLUSIVE: The Good People Enlist A-F-R-O & Termanology For "Sidewalk Barbecue" Video

Filed by Yun PinkertonYun Pinkerton

The Good People are continuing their campaign for The Summer EP by dropping a new video directed by Shock B. The duo Emskee and Saint have teamed with A-F-R-O and Termanology to premiere some visuals for their collaborative track “Sidewalk Barbecue.”

“In the same spirit as Main Source’s ‘Live At The Barbecue,’ we wanted to do a joint with some today’s top spitters, so we reached out to A-F-R-O and Termanology to be on this track with us,” Saint tells HipHopDX. “If you notice, the song has the same structure as ‘Live At The Barbecue’ — four 16-bar verses with a four-bar hook in between them.”

He continues, “I got the idea for the title from the barbecues people would have in front their buildings when I used to live up in Harlem. In fact, we shot the video on the same corner I lived on, so it looks exactly how I picture it in my head when I think a sidewalk barbecue.”

Watch The Good People’s “Sidewalk Barbecue” video featuring A-F-R-O and Termanology above. Stream their EP below.

Dame Dash Says It's Common Knowledge JAY-Z "Ain't Shit"

Filed by tr21ktr21k

Los Angeles, CA – JAY-Z has been a heavy topic conversation since announcing he and Roc Nation had partnered up with the National Football League. According to Funkmaster Flex, he once deterred Jermaine Dupri from getting involved with the pressional football league because it would be a bad look.

Now, Dame Dash is saying moves like that are common for the Hip Hop billionaire. During an interview with the No Jumper podcast, Dash made it abundantly clear where he stands.

“Everyone knows Jay ain’t shit,” he says. “Listen, if you ask anyone in the industry, it’s common knowledge that Jay ain’t shit. He’s about the bag. We all know that. He’s self preserving. Period.

“It’s just the people he does it to don’t have Beyoncé next to them. They don’t have that kind a power. This dude here, everyone’s looking. It’s not even like a secret.”

With a blunt and a lighter in his hand, the Roc-A-Fella co-founder then goes on to say Hov used to do that with women Dame was interested in at the time.

“I’d be like, ‘Yo, she asked me to do this’ and he’d be like, ‘I wouldn’t do it,’” he explains. “The next day he’s wifed her.”

He adds, “If you look under the hood, all the answers will reveal themselves.
