Ginuwine And Tank Didn't Appreciate Tyrese's Comments About TGT

Looks like TGT fans will just have to find a hobby because this album isn't happening anytime soon.

TGT fans should probably find a hobby because it appears as though a sophomore album from the R&B trio isn't happening anytime soon. Tyrese and Ludacris stopped by The Breakfast Club Monday (April 10) to promote the eighth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, The Fate of The Furious. 

Now, before Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy could even begin to discuss the submarine, faster than the speed of sound cars and the over the top explosives in the film, Tyrese had to address a few things, namely the controversial comments about women and cosmetic surgery. He also touched on the hold up surrounding the new TGT album.

"I mean listen man," Tyrese said. "Ginuwine still wants an equal split."

Before explaining why the group hasn't gotten back into the studio, Tyrese expressed his love and respect for Tank and Ginuwine but said above all of that business is business.

"I want to make this short and sweet. At the end of the day I feel like we're all brothers, we're all family and all of the above, but let's say if Chris [Ludacris] for example is getting $200,000 a show and I'm getting $30,000 a show I think my motivation to split with Chris would be pretty obvious, because if I'm splitting with Chris then I'm getting way more at the end of the day per show." Tyrese said. "It's business. Outside of brotherhood, and you my dude and my family, it's business."

Ginuwine quickly got wind of Tyrese's claims that he was trying to mooch off him and took to Instagram to air his grievances.

Tank also offered his two cents on the matter and accused Tyrese of not being a team player.

"Tyrese feels he's better than me and G," Tank captioned. "Doesn't have more hits, hasn't sold more records but somehow he's better, SMH. We can't even get to the second album because n****s start with the David Ruffin sh*t."

Well people, let's take a poll. Tyrese is an actor and aside from the Fast and Furious, films, he's also had a recurring role in the Transformers sequels, and his last album Black Rose was the singer's first number one record on the Billboard 200.

But Ginuwine gave us classics such as "Pony" and "In Those Jeans" and Tank's vocal prowess cannot be denied. So, are G and Tank the background singers of TGT, or is Tyrese being a diva? Sound off in the comments.

Kanye West, EMI Working Towards Private Settlement

Kanye West and EMI could be close to settling their legal drama. Each party filed documents requesting a stay of the case to “explore the potential for a resolution,” The Blast reports.

West sued EMI in an effort to “gain freedom” from his contract, and to own his publishing. In the lawsuit, ‘Ye argued that his contract ended in 2010 under California law, which bars entertainers from being tethered to an agreement for more than seven years. The multi-Grammy winner, who signed the deal back in 2003, also accused the company of slavery because the contract doesn’t allow him to retire.

“Even if the contract were not lopsided in EMI’s favor (it is), even if its terms valued Mr. West’s artistic contributions in line with the spectacular success he has achieved for EMI (they do not), and even if EMI had not underpaid Mr. West what it owes him (EMI has), he would be entitled to be set free from its bonds,” the lawsuit reads.

EMI hit back with a countersuit filed in New York, instead of California. The suit pointed out that the 41-year-old rapper signed multiple contract extensions, in addition to accepting millions in advances.

According to The Blast, West and EMI now feel that putting a hold on the legal proceedings will be beneficial to both sides “and the Court by enabling the parties to engage in meaningful discussions in an attempt to resolve this action without having to incur the burden and expense of litigation and motion practice.”

Just like the Tina Snow artist, Thomas was a rapper who went by the name of Holly-Wood. With no doubt that her lyrical abilities rubbed off on her daughter, Thomas refused to let the "Tina Montana" emcee rap professionally until she turned 21. Beyond their bond, Megan Thee Stallion's mother doubled as her first assistant and manager.

In VIBE's NEXT feature, the 24-year-old artist revisited the moments her mother listened to her music. “Sometimes when we’re in the studio, I get her so hyped that she’s like, ‘Megan, I’m about to get in the booth and come out with another mixtape,’” she said.

There are currently no reports stating the cause of death.

Teachers Will Be Allowed To Carry Firearms In New Florida School Bill

A new bill has been approved by the Florida House committee that would allow the arming of teachers in classrooms.

The Sun-Sentinel reports the bill, gives educators the option to carry weapons on school grounds. The legislation was made following the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year. It also indicates that educators must have the approval of the school board before carrying a weapon school grounds.

For the teachers who volunteer, they are required to pass a psychological test as well as a drug test, participate in 144 hours of firearms training, and hold a valid concealed weapon permit.

The law was passed on Thursday (March 21) and advocates of the legislation believe that it would work to make the school safer while critics of the law have rejected it and do not feel as though teachers should play the role of law enforcement personnel in these schools. The main proponent for the legislation, as the Sun-Sentinel reported, Republican Rep. Jennifer Sullivan of Eustis advocated strongly for the law.

"The more people that are there to defend students, to defend other teachers, the better. If a teacher does not want to go through the program, I don't want them to go through the program." On the other side of the spectrum, Democratic Rep. Susan Valdes of Tampa had this to say, "teachers want to teach children and broaden children's minds. If they wanted to be a cop, they would have gone to the police academy and become a cop."
