Remy Ma boasted that she responded in 48 hours on “ShEther,” her blistering lyrical chopper spray at Nicki Minaj. Two days later, and all we’ve gotten from Ms. Minaj is deleted tweets toward Trey Songz and more Instagram posts. There are those—mostly “Barbs”—who feel that Nicki Minaj need not respond. That’s not how this Hip-Hop ish works. You want to be the Queen of Rap, you better handle your business when someone worthy comes for your neck.

Meek Mill played himself. The Philly rapper posted a series of videos on social that showed him urging a homeless man to do 20 push up for $20. This is the same Meek Mill who constantly lets fans know about how much his chains cost, how many foreign whips he drives and of course the expensive watches he wears. Thus $20 is a pittance, or maybe not since it is his money to do with as he chooses. However, this is exceptionally juvenile behavior. And Meek Mill is 29.

Tru Life posted a pic of himself with Jim Jones and a few other friends at the Roc Nation offices with a caption that read “No caption needed.” At its height, the drama between Jim Jones and Tru Life was the kind of stuff that helped move street DVD’s like weight and kept the block hot with talk about the former having his $10k gold cables taken by Life and his … Read entire story.
