15-Year-Old White Rapper Signs Million Dollar Deal With Warner/ Chappell

Most teenagers slave over hot grills at fast food joints or babysit neighborhood kids for cash during the summer. Not Chris Miles though. Meet Warner/Chappell's newest 15-year-old signee, who recently inked a $1.5 million deal with Warner/ Chappell.

TMZ reports that the Long Island native first garnered attention when he auditioned for the show America's Got Talent. While the teen MC didn't make the cut, he still hustled and dropped a 15-track mixtape called Growing Pains. He also managed to nab a spot on Cam'ron's song "Let Me Work" from the Harlemite's Ghetto Heaven Vol. 1 'tape.

Miles reportedly bagged an $182,500 advance for his debut album and could make a million more depending on the success of his first LP. Watch him showcase his best skills in the video for "32 Bar Acapella" (above) and look out for his single "Perfect" to drop tomorrow.

Blac Chyna Reportedly Calls Soulja Boy "Immature And Thirsty" After Split

After a whirlwind (almost two-week) romance, Blac Chyna and Soulja Boy have officially called it quits. And to add insult to injury, it seems like things did not end on a good note.

According to TMZ, a source close to the reality star and mother-of-two said that she reportedly called her ex-beau “immature and thirsty.” Additionally, Chyna is seemingly glad they’re over.

Previously reported by Page Six, the “Kiss Me Thru The Phone” rapper alluded to never officially dating the 30-year-old. “What I look like dating Blac Chyna lmao I’m in a relationship with Tiona Fernan stop playing with me lol,” Soulja Boy wrote on Twitter. Since then, the tweet has been deleted.

In another now-deleted tweet, he also revealed he thinks Chyna hacked into his phone. “Blac Chyna hacked my phone. Smh I didn’t tweet that last tweet apology. I left my phone at her house smh,” he tweeted.

While their relationship fell apart, the 28-year-old rapper is now focusing on his career. He recently revealed on Twitter a new album is in the works and even asked fans for some investment advice.

Cardi B Defends Khloé Kardashian Amid Cheating Scandal

Cardi B is stepping up to defend Khloe Kardashian after reports broke out that her boyfriend Tristan Thompson cheated with Jordyn Woods, who happens to be the best friend of Khloe's younger sister, Kylie Jenner. In a video on Instagram Live on Thursday (Feb. 21), Cardi suggested that Khloe should not be continuously mocked and humiliated.

"I’m seeing this whole Khloé Kardashian thing where everybody is celebrating that that happened to her. And it’s like, why?" The Bronx native asked in the video. "I know the Kardashians have done f**ked up sh*t before and everything, but I think karma got them when the last situation happened to short before she gave birth."

Cardi, who also went through a public debacle with her husband Offset for his infidelities, went on to state that people should not wish for the downfall of women, especially mothers. "Whatever karma they ‘deserve,’ it already happened. So why do you keep wishing that on a woman? Especially a woman who has a daughter," She added. "Why do we wish that on each other?"

She continued: "We know that our heart is literally bleeding, and you just want to die and you can’t sleep. You can’t escape it when you’re sleeping because you actually dream about it. It’s mainly the women in the comments. Why do you guys manifest and be happy off of that? She already learned her lesson."

She also offered some advice to Khloe about the current state of her relationship."Do what your heart feel like doing," Cardi told the reality star. "At the end of the day, everybody wanna act like they date deacons and pastors and their relationship is perfect."

Jussie Smollet Reportedly Cut From ‘Empire’s Last Two Episodes Of Upcoming Season

Shortly after news surfaced of Jussie Smollett facing charges of disorderly conduct and lying to police officials about a hate crime, the actor will not appear in Empire’s last two episodes, The Hollywood Reporter states. The announcement was made public by the FOX series’ executive producers on Friday morning (Feb. 22).

In a statement, the show’s gatekeepers described the past weeks’ instances as “incredibly emotional.” To keep a neutral working environment, the executive producers decided this decision would be best to sidestep any obstacles on set.

“While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out,” the statement reads. “We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

Smollett, 36, stated he was attacked by two men who hurled homophobic and racial slurs at him. The incident, which occurred in mid-January in the early hours of the morning in Chicago, was immediately investigated by local authorities. Recently, officials arrived at the conclusion that Smollett reportedly falsified information. Two men who were questioned, brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo, told law enforcement officials that Smollett contracted them to carry out the assault. They also claimed Smollett paid them $3,500.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson alleges Smollett planned the occurrence “to promote his career.” Johnson also addressed Smollett’s recollection that a noose was placed around his neck. “Why would anyone, especially an African-American man, use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations?” Johnson said during a press conference on Thursday (Feb. 21). “How could someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol and see an opportunity to manipulate that symbol to further his own public profile? How can an individual who’s been embraced by the city of Chicago turn around and slap everyone in this city in the face by making these false claims?”

As Smollett expressed his innocence to those at Empire, his attorney issued a statement backing his guiltlessness. “Mr. Smollett is a young man of impeccable character and integrity who fiercely and solemnly maintains his innocence and feels betrayed by a system that apparently wants to skip due process and proceed directly to sentencing.”

If Smollett is found guilty, he faces one to three years in prison.
