Drake: "Shout Out To The Real DJs That Know About Real Music"

Round 9, 346

It appears as though Drake isn't letting up on his feud with Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex. At a New York Summer Sixteen after party, Drake took to the stage to remind the crowd his love for New York  is unwavering, however, he's just not a fan of one of the city's veteran DJs.

"Shout out to the real DJs keeping New York music alive. I don't mean going and playing the songs four weeks late and sh*t trying to sound cool, late night primetime on the radio 7 to 9 O'clock talking all that bullsh*t" Drake said. "I mean, shout out to the real DJs that know about the real music and sh*t like that. Shout out to New York City, it's love. You already know. My name is Drake, I'm here to f*ck with you tonight."

Thursday night (August 4) while fans were patiently waiting for Frank Ocean's sophomore project "Boys Don't Cry"  the Views artist used the Madison Square Garden stage to make his angst against Flex known. It didn't take long for the DJ to get wind of the comments and shortly after he took to Twitter to respond. Ebro was then corralled into the drama and for a smooth 15 minutes (as the young kids say) "the streets were hot."

Friday, Ebro weighed in and said Drake's quarrel with the station is in part because he revealed if Eminem were ever to ever lyrically challenge the "One Dance" artist he would fire back.

“What is this really about with Drake?” Ebro asked. “Is this really about the fact that I said we was joking about him making comments about Eminem? You think that’s what this is really about? Or is this about Flex? Or is this about all of it?”

Ebro later determined Drake is being overly sensitive.

“If you’re sensitive about something in the first place, any little thing can get you,” Ebro said.

Maybe Drizzy is being sensitive or maybe Flex, Ebro and Hot 97 are playing too much. Either way, this feud doesn't look like it's going to be put to bed anytime soon.

Chadwick Boseman Died Without Will, Wife Files To Become Administrator Of His Estate

Chadwick Boseman died without having a will in place. On Thursday (Oct. 15), Boseman’s widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, filed probate documents in a Los Angeles Superior Court to become administrator of his estate, which is reportedly valued at $939,000 in personal property and assets.

Boseman, a resident of California but a native of South Carolina, is survived by Ledward and his parents, who were listed on the documents along with his wife. Per California law, the spouse inherits community property and splits any separate property with the parents of the deceased. Boseman likely had additional assets in a separate trust.

The 43-year-old actor passed away in August, following a four-year battle with colon cancer, which he kept secret from mostly everyone around him with the exception of a few people in his circle. Boseman and Ledward were first linked in 2015, and tied the knot sometime this year.

The Black Panther star thanked Ledward during his acceptance speech at the Screen Actors Guild last year. “Simone, you're with me every day,” he said at the time. “I have to acknowledge you right now. Love you.”

Ice Cube Responds To Being Called A “Sell Out,” Denies Endorsing Donald Trump

Ice Cube has been fending off criticism for allegedly linking with Donald Trump to help him construct his “Platinum Plan” for Black America, but the West Coast rap legend says that he isn’t working with the president and responded to being called a “sell out” on social media.

When I got bus to school. Homies called me a sellout. When I started rapping in 1983. Bangers called me a sellout. When I left NWA. They called me a sellout. When I start doing movies. Rappers called me a sellout. When I started my own league. The arena said it was a sellout.😂

— Ice Cube (@icecube) October 16, 2020

Cube has been making the media rounds speaking to Rolling Stone, CNN's Cuomo Prime Time and Roland Martin over the last two days. In an interview with Martin on Thursday (Oct. 15), Cube discussed his Contract with Black America and clarified that he has not endorsed Trump, or worked with him in any capacity. However, Cube explained that Trump’s administration reached out to him about the CWBA, and apparently used some of his ideas for the “Platinum Plan.”

When asked to outline the similarities between both proposals, Cube seemed as though he was reviewing Trump’s “Platinum Plan” for the first time.

According to Politico, Cube traveled to Washington D.C. for a three-hour meeting with Jared Kushner and other senior Trump advisers. The story suggests that the meeting with Cube shows the extent to which Trump will go in hopes of making Black voters a centerpiece of his re-election bid.

Cube connected with Kushner through a mutual associate of his business partner Jeff Kwatinetz -- who is also the former business partner of ex-Trump strategist, Steven Bannon. Cube and his team reportedly continued meeting with Trump’s aides via conference call, and an additional in-person meeting (Cube did not attend).

The 51-year-old rapper-actor said that he was also contacted by Joe Biden’s campaign, but was told that the campaign wanted to wait until after the presidential election to get deeper into the CWBA.
