Beef Settled: Frank Ocean & Travis Scott Worked Out ‘ASTROWORLD’ Issue Weeks Ago

Way Out West Festival Sweden - Day 1 - Performances

Source: Emelie Andersson/WENN.com / WENN

Frank Ocean was reportedly seeking a cease and desist order against Travis Scott over the singer’s appearance on the Houston rapper’s ASTROWORLD album. Ocean took to Tumblr to clear any concerns, saying that the pair worked out their legal differences weeks ago.

From Ocean’s Tumblr:

I THINK THE SONG SOUNDS COOL, I DID IT IN LIKE 20 MINUTES AND THE MIX SOUNDS THE WAY TRAVIS WANTED IT TO SOUND FOR HIS RECORD. I ALSO APPROVED IT BEFORE IT CAME OUT SO THE CEASE AND DESIST WASN’T ABOUT 🔊 IT WAS ABOUT 🏳️‍🌈. ME AND TRAVIS RESOLVED IT AMONGST OURSELVES WEEKS AGO. 💖

If we’re reading his post correctly, it appears that Ocean was not upset over the quality of his performance on the track “Carousel” as previously thought, but instead, the mild controversy that surrounded the rollout of ASTROWORLD with the removal of Trans model Amanda Lepore from the album cover.

Good thing it’s all settled as it is one of the several standout tracks on Scott’s chart-topping record.

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is overseeing a number of projects, which includes serving as an executive producer for the Starz network hit, Power. Taking time out of his busy schedule, the G-Unit mogul clowned Diddy and REVOLT while also propping up his series via Instagram.

“Hey l’m not ready to run a network but I’m already running Starz. what’s that sh*t you got called again puffy? Well l can help you fix that. LOL get the strap.#lecheminduroi #power,” Fif wrote Tuesday (July 3).

He followed with another post showing Diddy fighting with actor Colm Meaney in a still shot from the film Get Him To The Greek captioned with, “Come on man you can’t talk to puff any kinda way now the f*ck you think you me get the strap. #lecheminduroi.”

So far, Diddy hasn’t responded. Perhaps this means 50 Cent is ready to move on with his beef with Jim Jones now?

Kanye West Says Drake & Pusha T Beef Is Dead, Okay

Kanye West MAGA

Kanye West says a lot of things. Your MAGA hat wearing favorite rapper took to Twitter to suggest that the beef between his G.O.O.D. Music label President Pusha T and Drake has been deaded. 

“I’ve never been about beef    I’m about love    lines were crossed and it’s not good for anyone    so this is dead now,” tweeted Yeezy on Saturday (June 2).

So far, it’s been radio silence from Drake after Pusha Tea dropped “The Life of Adidon,” besides a statement trying to explain that ill-thought blackface photo shoot.

While Yeezy was basically a victim of collateral damage, the Pusha vs Drake beef has been sizzling for years (remember “The swag don’t match the sweaters?”). A passive-aggressive tweet won’t stop it.

Beef Update: J. Prince Made Drake Call Off Pusha T Response

J Prince is a certified triple OG and that was made evident over the weekend as it relates to the apparently now-defunct Pusha T and Drake beef. The Rap-A-Lot Records founder put in a call to Drizzy and told him not to respond further to his Virginia rival.

With rumors on the Internet that Drake had a reply in the can for “The Story Of Adidon,” a blistering track where Push alleged Drake fathered a child with former soft-core porn actress Sophie Brussaux, Prince has seen enough. The Houston native spoke with DTLR Radio personalities DJ Reddz and Fadam Got Da Juice, saying in the interview that things have gone too far

Citing that what Pusha engaged in with the track was “pig men mentality” by going after Drake’s parents and his ailing producer Noah “40” Shehib, Prince said that for Drake to respond would be giving in to the lowest part of himself and suggested he move on.

While few would question the directions and motives of J Prince considering his many power moves in both business and the streets, some might wonder if Drake lost this war of words due to the damaging attack of Pusha T. For now, all eyes are tuned towards Drake’s upcoming Scorpion album and a summer tour but now with this beef and its abrupt end hanging over his head.

Beef Alert: Chief Keef Shot At Outside New York Hotel

Berner Presents Hippie Hill

Source: Tim Mosenfelder / Getty

After the tough talk from Tekashi 6ix9ine, reports broke out this morning that Chief Keef was shot at this morning in front of a New York hotel. Tekashi named Keef and fellow Chicago rapper Lil Reese in a threatening message daring the Drill artists to kill him in 48 hours.

New York Post reports:

But the would-be assailant missed the mark, instead striking a sign in the front of the W Hotel on Broadway near West 47th St. around 5 a.m., sources added.

Cops are hunting for two men in connection to the shooting.

Chief Keef, who released his latest album The GloFiles (Pt. 1) last month and boasts 4.7 million followers on Instagram, may have been having a social media beef with a rival rapper from Brooklyn, according to a police source.

From the sounds of this, it appears that it will be a very hot summer.

Chinx Was Killed Over 6 Year Beef With Rapper, Per NYPD

Last week, two men were finally arrested for the murder of Chinx. Details are emerging about what led to the French Montana-affiliated rapper’s death via a drive-by shooting in Queens. 

XXL spoke to  Lt. Richard Rudolph, Commanding Officer of the Queens South Homicide Squad, who offered up a theory the NYPD has about the shooting and murder.

Apparently, Chinx got into a fight with Quincy Homere, one of the men arrested for his death, while both were incarcerated in Rikers Island.

“We’re not exactly sure what the fight was about but our perpetrator Quincy probably got the worst of it and he wanted to get back at Chinx,” Rudolph told XXL.

He added, “When he saw Chinx’s career starting to blow, he took it real personal and figured that his [own] career was going south… It just festered inside of him.”

Rudolph also detailed how a verbal altercation outside a show in Philly is what probably led Homere, who was an aspiring rapper who went by Qwality, to exact fatal revenge. He also explained how Homere, the shooter, and his alleged accomplice, Jamar Hill, stalked Chinx the night he was killed.

Azealia Banks Ends Struggle Beef With Nicki Minaj

Azealia Banks hopped out the witchcraft closet and got her name back in the rotation this week with a flurry of digs taken at the expense of Cardi B. The Harlem rapper’s feud with Nicki Minaj seemingly disappeared from the conversation in light Banks’ recent jabs, but she took to Instagram to squash the beef for good on Thursday.

Billboard reports:

Banks reached out to Minaj via direct message and lauded the “No Frauds” MC for her artistry and intellect. “I really do enjoy your artistry and think you’re so intelligent and clever,” said Banks. “You have a really brilliant art mind and often times remind me a lot of myself.”

To Banks’ surprise, Minaj responded and encouraged the embattled star to focus on her career. “You’re very talented & very smart,” she said. “Focus on what really matters from now on.” According to Banks, she “cried a bit when [Minaj] responded.”

Don’t expect the chummy feel-good vibes to be carried over to Cardi anytime soon.

Drake Talks Meek Mill Beef: “This Is How You Want To Play It?”

Drake sat down for an increasingly rare interview with The Fader for its 100th issue. Of course, he talked his beef with Meek Mill, an he let the chopper spray. 

Drizzy brought the situation up without the writer even having to ask, starting with when Funkmaster Flex pump faked everybody.

“I’m just gonna bring it up ‘cause it’s important to me,” Drake told The Fader. “I was at a charity kickball game—which we won, by the way—and my brother called me. He was just like, ‘I don’t know if you’re aware, but, yo, they’re trying to end us out here. They’re just spreading, like, propaganda. Where are you? You need to come here.’ So we all circled up at the studio, and sat there as Flex went on the air, and these guys flip-flopped [about how] they were gonna do this, that, and the third.”

Then, when Drake dropped “Charged Up, ” there no immediate retort.

Says The Fader:

When a reply to “Charged Up” didn’t come, Drake could hardly believe it. “This is a discussion about music, and no one’s putting forth any music?” he says, speaking with a furrowed brow, as if reliving his incredulity. “You guys are gonna leave this for me to do? This is how you want to play it? You guys didn’t think this through at all—nobody? You guys have high-ranking members watching over you. Nobody told you that this was a bad idea, to engage in this and not have something? You’re gonna engage in a conversation about writing music, and delivering music, with me? And not have anything to put forth on the table?”

Taking offense to Meek Mill failing to have worthy retaliation in the chamber, he figured he had to make a song that have vitriol, and could get radio play (see: “Back To Back”).

It was then that he decided to just go ahead and do another song. “I was like, ‘I’m gonna probably just finish this.’ And I know how I have to finish it. This has to literally become the song that people want to hear every single night, and it’s gonna be tough to exist during this summer when everybody wants to hear [this] song that isn’t necessarily in your favor.”

And there you have it.

The 100th issue of The Fader hits newsstands on October 27. Peep the full cover story, including his thoughts on ghostwriting, right here. Video of the cover shoot on the flip.

Das EFX And Lords of the Underground Explain Their 90’s Era “Beef”

The 90’s was such a dope period in Hip-Hop. There was a groundswell of tremendously talented MC’s coming out of every ‘hood all over the land. There was also a lot of beef. Lyrics were exchanged between Das EFX and Lords of the Underground, both of whom had similar imagery surrounding their groups. Das was “straight from the sewer” and Lords was from “the underground,” which caused some to think there was tension. And then, Mr. Funkee of the Lords rapped, “We dropped psycho and everybody thought that it was DAS……. it didn’t effect me! Real Hip-Hop fans were like “Ohhhhhhhhh…..”

However, the beef that we saw never fully manifested itself. To this date, the story was untold. Skoob & Krazy Drayz of Das EFX and Doitall of the Lords recently met at – ironically – 24 Hours of Peace, a community event in Newark, NJ. AllHipHop’s Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur talked to the guys about what went awry and how they eventually fixed it.

Drake/Meek Mill feud: What’s wrong with celeb beef culture

“Calling all Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift fans: Shots have been fired, this is not a drill.” That’s pretty much been the reaction of the Internet this week, after Cyrus gave an interview with Marie Claire, in which she called out Swift and the hypocrisy of the music industry’s sex/violence paradigm, as illustrated in her “Bad Blood” video. “I don't get the violence revenge thing,” declared Cyrus. “That's supposed to be a good example? And I'm a bad role model because I'm running around with my titties out? I'm not sure how titties are worse than guns.” YouTube: Taylor Swift – Bad Blood ft. Kendrick Lamar Cyrus has a point: The double-standard between sex and violence in American pop culture has been well-chronicled. But her invocation of Swift to make her point is still frustrating, because it feels like the beginning of just another celebrity feud. In music today, celebrity feud culture has somehow overtaken the industry, tearing down artists and distracting us from their work.This isn’t exactly a surprising turn of events. Best friend-collector that she is, Swift has been involved in a rather high amount of disagreements lately. Things bubbled over in last month’s Nicki Minajincident, wherein Minaj expressed her distaste with the lack of black women nominated at the MTVVMAs. Swift, apparently seeing this as a personal attack on her, responded indignantly. She eventually apologized, and it’s been radio silence between the two ever since. But not before Katy Perry, widely acknowledged as the target of “Bad Blood,” threw some not so subtle shade at Swift on Twitter. Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman…— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) July 22, 2015The feud didn’t stop there, amidst rumors that Rihanna was preparing a T-Swift diss track of her own. Even Canadian pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen was briefly thrown into the fray, when fans freaked out over the release of her single “Warm Blood,” and began contrasting it with Swift’s aforementioned anthem. As the Daily Dot’s own Alexandra Samuels notes, labeling the exchange as a “feud” isn’t necessarily fair, because it suggests that women like Minaj and Swift are not capable having a rational discussion about the state of entertainment. “The media's tendency to reduce serious arguments between women to petty quarrels is problematic, because it casts aside women like Minaj as ‘haters,’ rather than as creative minds who are also cultural influencers,” she writes. There is an intelligent debate to be had regarding representation in the music industry, and Minaj and Swift gave us a chance to have it. But in painting it as nothing but a “cat fight,” the message got lost on the Internet. @taylorswift13@NICKIMINAJ I was enjoying the cat fight! 🙀😿— Shanjid Alam Violet (@ShanjidAlam) July 24, 2015However, men aren’t any less susceptible to music’s celebrity feud machine, as evidenced by the recent back and forth between hip-hop artists Drake and Meek Mill. After Meek Mill took to Twitter to call out the Canadian rapper for using a ghostwriter on his contribution to Meek’s recent album, fireworks went off. What commenced was an exchange of diss tracks and tweets. This led to Drake’s seemingly triumphant performance at OVO fest in Toronto, where the crowd reveled as he took to the stage and projected a series of memes making fun of his aggressor.In painting it as nothing but a “cat fight,” the message got lost on the Internet. Feuds, or “beefs,” as the genre would oft describe them, are a tricky subject in hip-hop, because they are a major part of its history. In the past, feuds have elevated all parties involved to reach new creative heights. Look at the feud between Big Daddy Kane and Rakim, two hip-hop pioneers who exchanged subtle disses for years, determined to prove not just to each other that they were the best—but to themselves. But hip-hop’s most famous feud, the east coast/west coast dispute between Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G., ended up with blood being spilled on both sides: Shakur was shot dead in 1996, and Biggie was gunned down less than a year later.So without a doubt, competition in hip-hop is a mixed bag. In between his dual masterpieces Good Kid, M.A.A.D City and To Pimp A Butterfly, there was hardly a more exciting moment for hip-hop in 2013 than when Kendrick Lamar famously called out all his major rap peers on Big Sean’s “Control,”—including Big Sean himself. And when beef began to brew between Lamar and Drake that same year, it appeared as if everyone was going to emerge a winner. Here were two artists at the peak of their powers, each striving to be at the top of their game.YouTube: Big Sean – Control f. Kendrick Lamar & Jay ElectronicaThe Meek Mill/Drake feud, on the other hand, turned into something completely different. Regardless of whether Meek’s allegations against Drake were true, they were complicated by the fact that he was dating Drake’s labelmate, Nicki Minaj. And given that Drake was the more famous rapper, Mill received much harsher treatment from the media—and from the Internet, in particular. While the memes making fun of him started out as lighthearted and kind of funny, they quickly turned ugly on multiple levels. Pitchfork’s Meaghan Garvey asserts, “There was a distinct moment during the OVO Fest set where things immediately flipped from corny but ultimately harmless to legitimately toxic: an unfunny, badly-edited image of a bride and groom, with Nicki’s head edited onto the man and Meek’s onto the woman.” YouTube: Drake Performs "Back To Back" At OVO Fest 2015 (Meek Mill Diss)The feud was no longer about a competition to determine who was the better rapper—it was about sexism, masculinity, and the media’s unquenchable thirst for blood, the desire to see one person crowned a victor, standing over the carcass of the other’s career. Neither party came off looking great, and Drake especially did damage to his reputation as a sensitive and thoughtful rapper, all in some arbitrary struggle to win the Internet.While the memes making fun of him started out as lighthearted and kind of funny, they quickly turned ugly on multiple levels.The most fundamentally frustrating thing about celebrity feuds between musicians is that they distract us from the actual music. It has become impossible to talk about about popular artists without also discussing their personal lives. While an artist’s personal life can occasionally inform how we think about their music, it shouldn’t define it. Take Kanye West, for example. No matter how many awards and prizes he receive and how matter how much acclaim he accrues, there are some who will always see him as Kim Kardashian’s asshole husband. That’s what the resistance to having him play at the Glastonbury Festival and Toronto's Pan American Games was really about—not being able to see past the celebrity to the talent. The worst of all possible outcomes manifests in the trend of music journalism being covered like “lifestyle reporting,” as was first highlighted in Ted Gioia’s now infamous op-ed piece for the Daily Beast. I’ve just spent a very depressing afternoon looking through the leading music periodicals. And what did I learn? Pretty much what I expected. I found out what the chart-topping musicians are wearing (or, in many instances, not wearing). I got updates on their love life and learned whose marriages are on the rocks. I read updates on the legal proceedings of the rich and famous. I got insights into the food preferences and travel routines of megastars. Gioia can’t help but come off as a kind of cranky old man here. But while he’d be wrong to buy into the idea that pop music is worse today than ever before (a frequent trope in cranky, old man thinking), he’s correct in his observation that now more than ever before, we’re more focused on the artists than we are on their art. The trade-off is that on the Internet, we have more ways to feel connected to our favorite musicians, but we’re also inundated with invitations to stare one-sidedly into their personal lives, criticizing their every move from afar. When we follow artists on Instagram and Twitter, we think we get a sense of who they really are. But we forget that the best way to get a sense of who an artist is comes from listening to their music. Music has not gotten substantially worse in recent years, but music feuds have. And this is not good. It’s not good for women, it’s not good for men, and it’s not good for music in general. But most of all, it’s not good for us, the listeners.Chris Osterndorf is a freelance journalist whose work has appeared on websites such as Mic, Salon, xoJane, the Week, and more.

Drake Finally Addresses Meek Mill Beef [Photos]

Although it appeared that a full 24 hours were set to transpire without a peep from Drake regarding his “situation” with Meek Mill, it appears the Canadian superstar is definitely in the know of what’s going on.

In an Instagram private message now turned public with battle rapper Hitman Holla, Drake addresses to the situation after his pal in rhyme tossed a few words of encouragement his way.

“I see da foolishness, you know me & Showw not buying it.. U our guy keep killing u motivate niggas like us!,” Hitman Holla wrote before splicing in a few lyrics from “5 AM In Toronto.” Drake replied with his favorite praying hand emojis and responded with an instant classic message: “I signed up for greatness. This comes with it.”

The St. Louis representer also revealed that Drake had come in the clutch for him before saying, “Drake sent $ $ to my mama Breast Cancer Fund.. That’s my guy.. Lame ass Twitter ni***s stop it.. Deeper than Rap!”

According to Complex, Drake also liked a video from Skepta associate, KreptPlayDirty, which featured Skepta on the cover of a magazine with his new “frenemy” on another.

Drake’s silence most likely means there’s another “insert early morning time” in “insert big city” being prepped as they speak. Chances are Meek Mill is also on standby, seeing that he started the entire ordeal late last night.

Check out Drake’s response via DM and more from Hitman Holla on the following pages.

Something That Looks Like Beef Breaks Out Between Budden And Meek

Joe Budden’s comments on his podcast about Meek Mill may have been misconstrued by the Philly rapper. That didn’t stop the pair from having words for each other on Twitter. Click here for the previous report on this matter.

It all started when Joe Budden made a commentary about Meek and Nicki’s relationship as it corresponded with his public persona. Check out the previous comments.

Part of my problem with that is that Meek’s music is too hard. Meek’s music is too hard for me to look at him with this f*cking sappy f*ck sh*t. Be the hardcore guy that I’m sure she was attracted to at some point. It’s nasty. I hate everything about it. I’m glad a dark-skinned guy is behaving this way. Light-skinned n*ggas, we’re not moving like that…

Light-skinned guys, we’re used to getting the bad b*tch. He’s like this b*tch just stepped off a f*cking Mars and is the only girl. Oh my God, I just hate it all. But I do appreciate them both keeping the hope of love alive.

YG Admittedly Fought DJ Mustard Over IG Beef [VIDEO]

Though YG would not divulge how the fight went down or who threw the first punch, he admits that this wasn’t the first time he and the hit making producer have thrown hands.

Action Bronson & Azealia Banks Beef About Race [Photos]

Action Bronson and Azealia Banks got into a  good old-fashioned Twitter war today that involved Q-Tip, Solange Knowles, and Tyler the Creator, by default. To give a little back story, Banks has had her back up against the wall today because of her interview with Hot 97.

Since she made some interesting, and emotional points on Hot 97 talk, the talk about  race, and “cultural appropriation” trickled over into Twitterland. Bronson’s name was thrown into the conversation by way of a random tweet to Banks about “white people who can rap.”

The Queens rapper jumped on Banks for even mentioning his name, and everything got out of control from there. Banks called him a “tribute band” version of Ghostface Killah a “fat meatball,” and a myriad of other insults.

Bronson hit below the belt too. He mentioned melting off her “boy t*ts” and said she lacked  “sex appeal,” “talent”, and a fan base “outside Manchester, England”

That wasn’t even the end of it either. Q-Tip and Knowles were pulled in by Bronson’s tweet about “people” supporting Banks’s views, and  making her a “Civil Rights activist.”

He obviously got questioned about using the word “people,” but insists that it wasn’t about race.

Check some of the tweets in the gallery.
