But there were still a few artists who got caught in Shady’s lyrical crosshairs, including Machine Gun Kelly and Joe Budden. And although it’s minimal, Em also sends a tiny shot in Trippie Redd’s direction on the track “Marsh.”
“Then he said kill MCs/Trippie Redd, with pills and lean/Sipping meds in the limousine/Getting head, guillotine,” Em spits.
Now, Trippie is responding to the mention on one his Instagram Stories.
“Niggas be 50 beefing wit a 15yr old,” he wrote. His sentiment was followed by a peace sign emoji and sleepy face emoji, indicating Trippie is tired the drama.
Budden also responded to Em’s perceived disses on Music To Be Murdered By during a recent episode The Joe Budden Podcast.
The track “I Will” reunites Slaughterhouse vets Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5’9 and KXNG Crooked. In addition to Budden being noticeably missing, many people assumed the line, “Your group is f the chain, but you’re the weakest link” is about Budden — but he denied it. He said the line is actually about Lord Jamar, another one Em’s foes.
“The Em line in that song, when he was tearing Lord Jamar’s ass up on old group flips, that led to ‘Your group is f the chain, but you’re the weakest link,’” he says around the 47-minute mark. “In a song featuring members ] Slaughterhouse, I could see how that looked like it was about Joe. Joe says it was not.
“That’s about Lord Jamar, obviously, if you listen to the eight bars coming before it. You listeners can] get your panties out the bunch.”
The former Everyday Struggle host then addressed “Lock It Up” featuring Anderson .Paak in which Eminem raps, “Try’na save at Kroger, so why would I give a fuck about back-stabbin’ Trader Joe for?”
“Trader Joe, Trader Joe, Trader Joe — that’s hurtful,” he says. “Laughs] That’s not right! Laughing] That’s fensive, man. Trader Joe? I’m Joe. Laughs] You’re telling me Joe is a traitor?”
Budden concluded, “The same way I feel like Eminem] should stop dissing Lord Jamar, he should stop dissing me. Laughs],” he says. “Hey, whatever we had—that exchange when you did all the multi-day interview segments with Sway Calloway], and whenever I said whatever I said on the pod’, it a moment in time.
“We had our exchange. It’s over. In 2020, I can’t harbor negativity not only towards one the best rappers, but somebody I’m not angry at. That’s what I gotta stop doin’. I don’t be mad at the people I come in and kill. There’s no hostility after that.”
The NFL wide receiver showed f his Nipsey-inspired Rolls-Royce Cullinan on social media, sharing photos the vehicle’s interior and rims decked out in the Crips’ signature blue colors. The car’s doors also feature custom lighting projecting Nipsey’s likeness on the ground.
“The game is sold not to be told !!” Jackson wrote on Instagram. “@nipseyhussle you already know I had to do it Loco NipBlu.”
The Nipsey-themed Rolls-Royce isn’t the first time Jackson has paid homage to the slain MC. The former Pro Bowler, a fellow Crenshaw native like Nipsey, has also sported Neighborhood Nip’s image and quotes on his cleats during NFL games.
Jackson upped the ante his tribute last season by auctioning f his game-worn cleats and donating the proceeds to the Neighborhood Nip Foundation.

Lizzo continues to rack up those career milestones. Just ahead the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards — where’s she nominated in eight major categories — the pop powerhouse has unveiled her first Rolling Stone cover.
The cover shot features Lizzo surrounded by two half-naked men kneeling at her feet holding bouquets lilies as they look up at her adoringly. Lizzo is draped in a flowery body suit and a green shall thrown over her head.
“Behold, a big grrrl in her natural habitat,” she wrote on Instagram. “@Rollingstone cover by @david_lachapelle.”
During the Rolling Stone interview, Lizzo marvels at where she is in her career today. Her No. 1 Billboard single “Truth Hurts” didn’t actually explode until years after it was initially released — but she always knew she had something special.
“When we were making it we knew it was ahead its time,” she says. “Now we have the pro that these songs are timeless. They will connect when they need to connect.”
In terms the seemingly constant barrage fat shamers who visit her social media pages daily, Lizzo is unfazed and reveals she made peace with her body a long time ago.
“I’ve come to terms with body dysmorphia and evolved,” she says. “The body-positive movement is doing the same thing. We’re growing together, and it’s growing pains, but I’m just glad that I’m attached to something so organic and alive.”
But Lizzo says she doesn’t want that to be the sole focus her career.
“I’m so much more than that,” she explains. “Because I actually present that, I have a whole career. It’s not a trend.”
The Grammy Awards take place on Sunday (January 26) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Until then, check out more the photos from Lizzo’s Rolling Stone shoot below.

“As a black woman, I make music for people, from an experience that is from a black woman… I’m making music that hopefully makes other people feel good and helps me discover self-love. That message I want to go directly to black women, big black women, black trans women. Period.” – Lizzo for @rollingstone by @david_lachapelle . . . @brettalannelson @marko_monroe @iwantalexx @theshelbyswain @erierinailz
Miami, Florida – The platinum-selling trio DoItAll, Mr. Funke and DJ Lord Jazz (collectively known as Lords Of The Underground) rose to prominence in the early 90s, with their first two albums spawning post-Golden Era essentials “Chief Rocka” and “Tic Toc” — among others.
Though their third and fourth releases, which dropped in 1999 and 2007 respectively, may have slipped under the mainstream radar, the group (now in their 27th year) has remained remarkably active.
After the release their last group album, House Of Lords, the trio all worked on solo releases — Doitall’s 2010 American Du project (which includes the Pete Rock-produced “Surrender”) being the first. Lord Jazz’s 2012 The Plain Dealer was next, followed by Mr Funke’s Deus Ex Machina Pt 1, which dropped in 2017.
Still, it’s been 13 years since fans have gotten a collective body work from the trio. That all changes in 2020, as they prepare to drop their fifth studio album, So Legendary — announced earlier this year alongside the first single “Insomnia.”
According to Lord Jazz, the new album was simply a matter time — and the group is back for the long haul.
“We love and are always recording,” Jazz tells HipHopDX. So Legendary is produced entirely by German production team The Snowgoons, who’ve developed a reputation in recent years for putting golden era heavyweights back on the map.
“Working with Snowgoons was a no brainer for me,” he notes. “These guys have dope beats and a great work ethic … I like that about them. The new project is definitely for both our fans and Snowgoons fans — we combined forces and knocked it out.”
Jazz explains that he first became aware the Goons while living in Paris, France, from 2000 to 2012. “I would see them while doing gigs in Germany and all around Europe. I love their albums and what they have contributed to Hip Hop. Our European management (Latfro Agency) actually suggested that we do the album and made it happen.”
The project was recorded in Germany while the group was on tour. “On our days f we would record,” he says. “Hip Hop is about whats going on in your surroundings, so Du and Funke are actually painting a picture what was happening while in Germany, listen to the verses.
“It was a plus that we were all together vibing in the studio and not in three different places,” he adds.
With 2023 marking their 30-year milestone, Jazz says he hopes Lords Of The Underground’s legacy will be longevity, positivity and great music that never degraded women.
“It’s up to us to write our own history because if we don’t somebody else will — and it won’t be authentic,” he says. “We strongly believe in helping others like Harriet Tubman did … Doitall is heavy into politics and making a big impact not only in his City Newark but worldwide. I’m starting a DJ course at the school Arts in Florida and teaching students about music and the great influence it has in the world.”
As for what keeps Jazz creativity motivated after almost three decades is simple: his family.
“My kids and wife keep me motivated. I have to provide for them so I’m always motivated and doing what I have to do,” he explains. “Creatively, just waking up and seeing the sun and breathing fresh air is motivation for me.
“My daughter DJ Glo keeps me on my Ps and Qs with the latest music,” he adds with a laugh. “She’s also a DJ, producer, actress and plays three different instruments … that’s motivation enough for me.”
The Lords Of The Underground’s long-awaited fifth album, So Legendary produced by The Snowgoons is coming soon. The group is also on tour in Europe this April. Jazz is also working on an EP with Jersey artist Tru Trilla.

Who is ready for a brand new episode from “The Martin Garrix Show”? We’ve already seen many the music producer’s adventures during the YouTube series and now it’s time that we witness another one. In this brand new clip you’ll see Martin’s Sziget adventures, so make sure to check it out below!
“You want me to tell everybody and let everybody know that — fine. Nick, I let you suck my dick,” he says in the clip. “OK, fine. I said it. I let Nick suck my dick — and I liked it. It was OK. It was fine. Nick, you sucked my dick. But everybody knows you did it as a female but Nick, you sucked my dick.
“I don’t want to say that. Nick been sucking dick laughs]. Nick, you know you’ve been sucking dick. You don’t want me on Wild ‘N Out. Nick been sucking dick. Everybody in the world gonna be like, ‘Nick been sucking dick.’
Several people in the comment section are accusing Brown being high on crack, while others are skeptical the claim altogether. In particular, the line about Cannon being “a female” as he allegedly performed the elicit act raised a few eyebrows.
Over the past few years, Brown has been arrested numerous times. In June 2018, he was busted with crack cocaine in Las Vegas while wandering around an area known for prostitution and illegal drug activity. Six months later, he was arrested a fifth time for breaking into his friend’s restaurant and attempting to change the locks.
In December 2018, Brown appeared on the Dr. Phil show where he insisted he was four years sober, was the son Michael Jackson and had four children “that he knows ” and didn’t remember their ages or names accurately. The host expressed concern about his mental health.
Brown started his career as a child actor on shows such as That’s So Raven and The Jamie Foxx Show.
Claymation Amazonian women and a post-apocalyptic Toronto are the focus PartyNextDoor’s latest video “Loyal.”
The new visual, which dropped on Tuesday (January 12), stars a claymation version PND as he tracks down three gigantic women wreaking havoc in Canada’s most populated city. OVO co-founder Drake, who sings on the track, is noticeably absent from short feature, animated or otherwise.
In the clip, the city Toronto has been taken over by a trio massive, scantily clad women. The Canadian government, who has tried and failed to reclaim the capital city, calls in PartyNextDoor for assistance.When the Canadian singer-songwriter arrives on the scene to find half-naked women who are several stories tall, the mission goes awry.
The video’s creator William Child has several other music video credits to his name. He created the video for “Disco Shit”by 03 Greedo and Kenny Beats featuring Freddie Gibbs. He’s also the brains behind the visuals for “Someone Else” by Emotional Oranges.
“Loyal” is one two songs released by PND ahead his upcoming album. Late last year, the 26-year-old musician told fans Twitter to expect a new album sometime in January 2020. Neither an album title nor ficial release date has been announced.
Watch the video up top.
Album in January

Megan Thee Stallion & Lizzo Stunt With Their Beyoncé Ivy Park Shipments Amid Plus-Size Community Criticism
Megan posted an Instagram video herself twerking to Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” as she received her box from Ivy Park.
The rising rap superstar captioned the video, “Omg what’s in theee boxxxxx. Thank you Beyoncé Ivy Park.”
Pop phenom Lizzo posted a video her own on Instagram, acting out City Girls’ “This for Rachael,” alongside her creative director Quinn Wilson.
Both women have been proud Beyhive members as well as sharing the hometown – Houston – along with the celebrated pop icon. The athleisure collection ficially launched on January 17 with celebrities and influencers receiving boxes.
Their shipments came at a time when the collection has been facing backlash for the lack inclusivity from the plus-size community. The controversy began when essayist Candice Marie Benbow and blogger LaToya T. Wright pointed out the faux pas. Many fans have been voicing their opinions over the lack sizes beyond XL in the collection – for both men and women.
Wright composed an essay on her blog Curvy Fashionista regarding the exclusion, even going as far as to point out Beyonce’s emphasis on inclusivity in a December 2019 press release for the collection.
Check out Benbow’s Twitter post below.
We can love her and still say Bey is wrong for Ivy Park’s size exclusion.
You can’t celebrate the inclusivity your other projects, having plus size dancers and background singers, but ignore us *again* when it comes to this.
The exclusion is intentional and I’m tired.

Shortly after the incarcerated rapper’s alleged girlfriend shared a photo 6ix9ine her Instagram account, the Dream Chaser Records founder hopped in the comment section to remind 6ix9ine he’s still a snitch.
“That witness protection drip,” he wrote.
In the photo, 6ix9ine’s signature rainbow-colored hair has been replaced by dark brown roots and dirty blonde tips. He’s dressed in an all-white prison jumpsuit and all-white sneakers, making his tattoos appear even more prominent.

The caption on the photo has seemingly infuriated the mother 6ix9ine’s child Sara Molina who had plenty vitriol for his current ride-or-die. Molina took issue with the line about her that read, “they had sex with the mother your child.”
“Bitch don’t mention me if you ain’t gonna see me,” Molina responded in an Instagram post. “You’re weak asf, imagine sleeping with a nigga, while he still with his baby moms, ENDING UP WITH THE NIGGA, BUT YOU STILL MENTIONING ME FOR WHAT. He not even hugging you or kissing you. boy look like he’s dying inside standing right next to you. you the only one that looks happy dummy.”
6ix9ine was sentenced in his racketeering case last month.
In addition to the 14 months he’s already served, Judge Paul A. Engelmayer sentenced him to 24 months in prison with five years supervised release, 300 hours community service and a $35,000 fine.
