When Big Butts Kill: A Woman Reveals Her Experience With Illegal Butt Injections

Some women get their butts enhanced illegally and actually live to tell about it. We caught up with a 29-year-old New Jersey clothing boutique owner who got shots of an unknown substance to enhance her derriere at some random woman’s house. The woman, Anivia Cruz-Dilworth was arrested late last year for botched surgeries, which landed several women in the hospital with serious complications.

As far as our boutique owner, who chose to remain anonymous for this interview, she has had her bigger butt for over a year and a half without any complications but she regrets having gone through with it despite increased attention.

Here she explains how pop culture’s obsession with women like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez lead her to getting shot up with some unknown liquid that was in a Poland Spring bottle.⎯Starrene Rhett

What procedure did you have done?

I got injections.

Is that the hydrogel?

We don’t know what it is, she went to jail for⎯it was about 9 people that she did and they ended up in the hospital.

You didn’t even go to a licensed surgeon, this changes everything!

No. We’re really talking about what’s going on in the street right now. I was in NJ. What’s going on over here is that girls want bigger butts. People are doing their butts over here and I don’t know what she was putting in it they said it was something that had to do with cement from home depot and she was injecting it into people and she⎯it was 7 months ago because she got locked up recently and charged wit malpractice. If you look on the Internet you’ll see the article, you’ll see her picture.

So it was someone different who did the British girl who died recently, right?

I know of that but it’s not her but all of them are using the same things to inject and with the British girl it didn’t go well with her body system. It broke down her body and the rest of the girls [in NJ]⎯one they were doing butt injections at the back of the salon and I guess they were finished and as they were walking to the door somebody burst open.

Wow, so you’re one of the lucky ones.

Yep. I’m one of the lucky ones. I don’t know what she put in me and I just had a tragic accident in October where I broke my neck front and back. I broke my c4 and my c5. I was in Miami on vacation and I got in the car with my sister’s friend and he was drinking and he flipped the jeep 5 times and they had to cut me out the back so I don’t think anything abnormal is in me because I had to do two surgeries and they went through my whole body and didn’t see anything abnormal. But some people use⎯like, there’s a guy in Jersey who uses animal fat and injects girls with it and Anivia, the girl who was doing everyone⎯she was using⎯you know the lining of the walls that you use to cement⎯that clear stuff? She was using that. You can find her all over the Internet, just look up “injections,” they’re from New Brunswick. She did about 20 people that got sick.

How much did you pay?

It’s $500.

That must have been a significant step down from what a surgeon would charge.

Yes. If you did the natural surgery it would have been like $3,500.

So why would you go to an unlicensed woman not knowing anything about her or what she uses?

My friend did it and she looked good. I mean, I already have a butt but I guess it was vanity. A lot of people say that people don’t pay attention to things but it’s⎯you know how you see all these videos with women with the big booties? It’s like I need to have a big booty for somebody to want me⎯well that’s the concept I get from the whole thing and that’s where that came in. everybody is seeing all these people with big booties on TV and they want it so I found a way to get it, not knowing that it can make you sick.

In an interview on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, the hip-hop artist spoke about how his project is somewhat of a guessing game when figuring out when the tracks were actually created. "You just play them. You kind of got to guess like, 'What year did he make this one?'" he said. "Some of the songs are, like, ten years old, 12 years old, and some of them are, like, as early as, like a year and a half ago."

He also teased to a partnership with the creation of the Hip-Hop Museum that's slated to come to the Bronx by 2022.

Check out the full interview below and stream the project below.

Lil Baby Says He Previously Paid Gunna To Write Raps He Practiced To

Lil Baby's inspiration to perfect his craft was greatly inspired by Gunna in a very creative way.

Unearthed by Genius, Lil Baby spoke to German hip-hop platform 16 Bars about his early days in the game. The rapper, who earned a BET Award for Best New Artist this year says he paid Gunna to write raps for him in order to practice his own raps.

While none of the songs Gunna were released, they have been used as reference tracks during the duos studio sessions.

"I done paid Gunna to write my songs. I never put the songs out but like when I first started rapping I used to pay him like $100 like 'I'ma give you $100 write something for me so I can try to learn to go in and record it," the Street Gossip rapper said.

Their tightknit friendship in and out of the studio also was considered teachable moments for the rapper. "That's how I used to practice and try to get it right because I just started rapping out of nowhere."

Gunna told Rolling Stone that he was the inspiration for Lil Baby to take his craft seriously. "I kinda helped push [Lil Baby] a little bit to go harder," Gunna said. "He didn't really care about [rapping] that much. He was being him, just chilling. I was critiquing his music, but also letting him know it sounded good, he should keep going, [offering] words of encouragement."

Lil Baby and Da Baby released a track entitled "Baby" Wednesday (July 17), he pulled up on verse one and the chorus of the new hit single.

Heating up verse one with these bars, it looks like the $100 sessions with Gunna paid off.

Swedish Prosecutors Opt To Keep A$AP Rocky Detained For Another Week

Since the tail-end of June, A$AP Rocky and two of his friends have been detained in Sweden as police officials investigate a physical altercation involving the rapper’s entourage and two unidentified men. According to the Associated Press, authorities will now keep Rocky and his friends in custody until July 25 until a court appearance.

In an interview with Complex, Congressman Adriano Espaillat, who’s also advocating on Rocky’s behalf, discussed the claim that the Harlem native poses as a flight risk, that’s why his detainment is a point of contention.

“They don’t have to keep him in jail. If he has a court appearance, first and foremost, it should be done expeditiously,” Espaillat said. “It shouldn’t be a long, protracted wait because that’s damaging in itself. So you got to wait a couple of months just to tell that you’re innocent? And then you’re away from your family and your work for several months? That’s not fair. That’s not just. I think that not only is it incumbent upon the Swedish authorities to release him or have him see a judge as quickly as possible. And for that to be done expeditiously without any further financial damages to him and his family.”

During the altercation, Rocky posted footage of the reported harassment, boasting his case of self-defense.
