    One man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in the shooting of rapper Young Dolph in the heart of Hollywood’s tourist district, police said. Corey McClendon, 43, was arrested near Highland Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard shortly after the Tuesday afternoon attack and has been booked on suspicion of attempted murder, according to Det. Megan Aguilar, an LAPD spokeswoman. It was not clear whether McClendon fired the gun or was simply involved in the brawl that preceded the shooting near one of the city’s most popular tourist destinations, Aguilar said. Young Dolph, a 32-year-old Memphis-area rapper whose real name...

    Stay away from bath salts, folks. Resident crazy person/rapper “XXXTentacion” released a new music video on Tuesday in which he hangs a young white child with rope while he, a black child and an audience look on. I wish that was the only disturbing thing in this video. I’m just going to leave this list of the atrocities in the video here. During the explicit and highly disturbing race-baiting display, XXXTentacion (whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy by the way) also: *Beat a high school teacher with a sex toy *Rapped about “putting a hole in your parents” *Bragged about...

    For a rapper whose debut single was called "Unorthodox," Joey Bada$$ isn't one to accept conventional wisdom. Defying widespread warnings, he proudly stared at the solar eclipse without protection. It didn't turn out to be a great idea. The rapper cancelled three shows starting Wednesday as he complained about his vision. The 22-year-old Brooklyn rapper on Monday shared on social media that he was gazing into the sky without special glasses as the United States witnessed its first coast-to-coast total eclipse in nearly a century. "This ain't the first solar eclipse and I'm pretty sure our ancestors ain't have no...

    R Kelly has denied canceled upcoming concerts scheduled as part of his After Party tour just weeks after doing the same over allegations of running a sex cult. The 50-year-old singer took to Instagram to share a short video to refute TMZ's Monday report that he had scuttled two shows in Louisiana, one in Dallas and another in Los Angeles. In the short clip he says: 'Yo what's up Mt. Pleasant, Michigan it's your boy Kells and I just want y'all to know that I'm five minutes away from your city, I'm ready to do my thing and I want...

    An Atlanta rapper who previously claimed to have been shot on at least 11 different occasions — and who in December, after being wounded, proclaimed "God made me bulletproof" — was shot and killed Sunday, reports CBS affiliate WGCL. Jibril Abdur-Rahman, 28, who was better known as Yung Mazi, was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds inside the Urban Pie pizza shop in Atlanta's Kirkwood neighborhood, police said. The restaurant was less than 200 feet from a police station. WGCL reports that officers heard the gunshots, but the perpetrator got away before police arrived. In a video posted to YouTube...

    <p>Rap super producer P. Diddy — real name Sean Combs — says he has been silent about the current state politics because black people “don’t give a f*ck about” President Donald Trump. “Politically, the way my mind is thinking—I ain’t with no marching,” Diddy told the Daily Beast. “If I come in the battlefield, I wanna be coming to the battlefield ready. Also, honestly, that’s why you haven’t really seen me show up on certain things.”</p>

    An FBI translator assigned to investigate a German rapper-turned-terrorist instead traveled to Syria to marry him, according to CNN. Daniela Greene lied to the FBI about her whereabouts and warned her new husband, Denis Cuspert, about the investigation. Cuspert, who rapped under the name Deso Dogg, has been featured in videos for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria holding severed human heads, CNN reports. According to the report, Greene realized she had made a mistake just weeks after marrying Cuspert. She then fled back to the U.S., where she was arrested and agreed to cooperate with authorities.

A warrant in the amount of $1 million was issued for his arrest....

    On Sunday, Snoop Dogg dropped the new music video for his Nightfall remix of BadBadNotGood’s track “Lavender” featuring Kaytranada. The video depicts a world full of mad clowns, and actor Michael Rapaport plays a clown father who is the target of police brutality. In his lyrics, Snoop addresses police brutality and racial profiling: “Trying to keep from dying in these muthaf***in’ streets / F*** the police / From a black man’s point of view.” The politically charged video also features a parody clown version of President Trump called “Ronald Klump.” The video presents a satirical look at the current political...

    Snoop Dogg stars in a new politically-charged music video that sees the rapper pull a gun on and “shoot” a parody clown version of President Donald Trump. Visuals for “Lavender,” a song that first appeared on BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada’s IV, show a clown-faced President “Ronald Klump” holding a press conference where he announces a plan to “deport all dogs.” “The ban that this motherf*cker tried to put up; him winning the presidency,” Snoop says is what inspired the concept of that part of the video, Billboard reports. The dog deportation plan spurs Snoop Dogg and a gang of armed men...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is reaching out to the African-American community these days, and in a new interview with Newsweek, at least part of that community is reaching back. Chicago rapper, actor, and White House invitee Common doesn’t seem to be persuaded by Trump’s newfound concern for black voters, if this interview is any indication: “America wouldn’t be taking a step back… we’d be taking 12 steps back [if Trump becomes president],” the Chicago-born musician and activist tells Newsweek. “It would be returning to some of the mentality of racism we’ve seen in the mid-Sixties, in the civil rights...

    For some reason, playing a song in which 50 percent of the lyrics are the exact phrase “smack my bitch up” for an accused domestic abuser didn’t quite sit right with people, leading the Cubs to issue the following formal apology: "The selection of this track showed a lack of judgment and sensitivity to an important issue. We have terminated our relationship with the employee responsible for making the selection and will be implementing stronger controls to review and approve music before public broadcast during our games."

He says the man drove off after Dre recorded video of him.

    It’s not everyday you see an artist speaking positively about our Second Amendment rights. That’s what makes Smo’s new song “We the People” so refreshing. Smo, the country rapper famous for “Kickin’ It In Tennessee” and “American Made“, released a fiery new track for the 4th of July. The powerful song “We the People” bemoans the state of our country and the erosion of our rights and liberties. The track is a departure from his previous lighthearted songs that focused more on muddin’ than political revolution. It’s great to see an artist standing behind his beliefs, especially when so many...
