Does Kanye West Have An On-Wax Response To Wendy Williams Up His Sleeve?

Kanye West allegedly penned a response to Wendy Williams on an unreleased track.

After having it out with Wiz Khalifa in their now-squashed Twitter beef last week, Kanye West has reportedly found another target. This time, the rapper, who's seventh studio album will debut on Feb. 11, may have a response for Wendy Williams after she repeatedly questioned his sexuality. According to Daily Mail, West is eyeing his warpath with a remake of Aerosmith's 1994 hit “(Dude) Looks Like a Lady,” and altered the lyrics to blast the outspoken talk show host.

"You obsessed with me/ Keep testing me/ You may be wearing dresses, but you a man like me/ Got bigger hands than me/ Let me see, your birther please/ A dude in a wig that really wanna be me," West allegedly rhymed.

Sources close to Yeezy said that the viciousness of the track, which was recorded at a Los Angeles studio last week, is reminiscent of a classic diss cut released nearly 15 years ago.

"Kanye played the record for some of the artists he has been collaborating with in the studio and everyone was going crazy. It was really on the level of Nas' 'Ether' diss record to Jay-Z."

So why haven't we heard the allegedly epic record? According to sources, Kim Kardashian was afraid that the song would offend the transgender community, specifically her stepfather, Caitlyn Jenner, and requested it remain unreleased.

"Kim was concerned that Caitlyn [Jenner] would be offended by the record. It would appear as though Kanye was in some way attacking that movement instead of just targeting Wendy. She didn't want Kanye to be labelled transphobic."

Hopefully, the never-to-be-heard track is just a preview of what's to come on Yeezy's newest project.

Nebraska Murder Suspect Tries To Kill Himself During His Own Murder Trial

A Nebraska man charged with first-degree murder attempted to kill himself Monday (June 23)  during his own murder trial.

As a trial witness left the stand, Aubrey Trail randomly stood from his wheelchair and shouted before repeatedly slashing his neck with a small blade.

"Bailey is innocent, and I curse you all,” Trail yelled.

Trail fell to the floor after the outburst with blood spewing from his neck. Deputies reportedly tried to disarm Trail while ensuring his own safety, and shortly after a cleaning crew was dispatched to the courtroom to clean the mess.

Trail, 52, and his girlfriend, Bailey Boswell, 24, both face the death penalty if convicted of the suffocation and dismemberment of Sydney Loofe. Trail and Boswell met Loofe via the social media dating app, Tinder.

On Nov. 16, 2017, Loofe went missing after Boswell and Trail arranged a date. Shortly after their meeting, the couple denied any involvement in her disappearance. Then Boswell gathered the press to confess to killing 24-year-old Loofe accidentally while enacting a "sexual fantasy."

Trail's defense team still thinks despite Monday's episode they can get a fair trial. Saline County District Judge Vicky Johnson said she will question each juror individually in her chambers and instruct them to disregard Trail's actions.

Testimony was scheduled to resume Tuesday morning. (June 25)

50 Cent Says 'Power' Will Not End After Season 6: "I Changed My Mind"

Fans were shook after Starz announced that its popular series, Power, would end after its sixth season.  Nearly two months after the initial announcement, however, 50 Cent suggested the hit series is far from over. In fact, in a post on Instagram on Tuesday (June 25), Fif said more seasons are on the way.

"I Changed my mind. POWER is not going to be over after season 6," 50 captioned a post of himself. "This sh*t is too good."

Although 50 as acted as an executive producer on the series, his statement likely comes as a shock to the cast as well as its co-creator, Courtney A. Kemp.  Carmi Zlotnik, Starz's president of programming, also released a statement in May 2019, confirming the show's end.

"Season 6 brings us to the end of what we know is just the first chapter of the 'Power' story. However, as one chapter comes to an end, another will begin," Zlotnik said in a statement. "Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent have created a world rich with complex and dynamic characters and there are a number of stories we plan to tell as we continue to explore and expand the 'Power' universe."

All things considered, this is probably just another one of 50 Cent's trolling stunts. Nonetheless, it doesn't hurt to dream.
