Wifisfuneral Discusses Being Jumped At XXXTentacion's Concert

"I didn’t think that they would do whatever they were doing."

Palm Beach MC Wifisfuneral made headlines this week after footage of him being attacked by concert goers after jumping into the crowd at XXXTentacion's opening show of his Revenge Tour in Houston, TX made the rounds. The 20-year-old was subsequently taken to the hospital after the incident, where he was treated for minor injuries.

The Black Heart Revenge rapper recently spoke about the attack, where he said that he attempted stage diving into the crowd four other times during the show before the incident occurred.

"First and foremost, I want to clarify that that wasn’t the first stage dive I actually did—that was probably like the fifth stage dive that I did,” he said. “The first stage dive that I did was during Kin$oul’s performance. And the crowd was f**kin’ with it. I stage dived two to three more times during Kid Trunks’ set, crowd was lit. They were asking me to come in the crowd. The fans weren’t malicious at all. The fans weren’t aiming to be like ‘You know what, we’re gonna set up this kid’ or ‘You know what, we’re gonna go to this Members Only show and just f**k up anyone we see.’ They were there purely to finally see all of us as a whole together and be like ‘Wow, I can finally say I saw all of Members Only together.’"

Wifi also noted that he noticed a few "really f**king mad" men in the crowd, and he believes that the attack was a set up of sorts.

"Supposedly some guy was telling the other two guys ‘Stand your position,’" he explained. "So I don’t know if it was a setup for me, or if it was a setup in general for anybody in Members Only for them to make an example, but at the end of the day I’m coolin’, bruh. They did all that sh*t, I was unconscious for a good ten seconds..."

Wifi said that the attackers "slit [his] head open a little bit," and he had a few bruises, but he's on the road the recovery and he's going back on stage soon. He'll also be gifting fans with a new mixtape called Boy Who Cried Wolf.

"This sh*t not knocking me down in any form or way,” he said. “This sh*t is not gonna stop me from making money. So regardless of this happening or not, that’s nothing."

Jeezy Seemingly Challenges T.I. To A Verzuz Battle

An ATLien edition of Verzuz could be on the way. Jeezy appeared to challenge T.I. to a friendly battle after the Grand Hustle frontman “respectfully” shot down an offer from Busta Rhymes.

Without directly naming Tip, Jeezy posted a cryptic video message on Instagram on Wednesday (Oct. 21) subtly calling out his potential rival. “I don’t know what you’re avoiding me for. I’ll tell you what though, since it means that much to you put a date on it,” said Jeezy.

Tip jokingly replied in the comments, “Could this long time constituent of mine be referring to me???”

The Verzuz battle isn’t confirmed just yet but fans are already excited at the thought of two of ATL’s finest going toe-to-toe. In the meantime, Swizzy and Timbaland are still prepping the lineup for Verzuz season two, and revealed that Busta threw his hat in the ring. “He’s ready for any type of Verzuz action coming his way,” Swizzy told Jimmy Fallon.

Busta also confirmed to Fat Joe that’s he's down to go up against T.I.

But it doesn't look like the Verzuz showdown will be happening as Tip responded back citing a “generational gap” between him and Busta.

“I didn’t know we were reaching back through generations. That’s a huge generational gap there isnt it? I have a huge amount of respect for you,” noted Tip. “An exponential amount of respect.”

Watch his full response to Busta below.

Stevie Wonder Leaves Motown Records, Drops 2 New Songs

2020 has been a year of change for a lot of people, including Stevie Wonder. The music legend announced that his time with Motown Records has come to an end after spending his entire career on the record label.

Wonder, 70, held a virtual press conference on Tuesday (Oct. 13) where he revealed that he left the label and is releasing music under his own imprint, What the Fuss Records, named after his 2005 single, “So What the Fuss.” Wonder’s record label inked a distribution deal with Republic Records, meaning he will stay in the Universal Music Group family, per The Hollywood Reporter.

In addition to the label reveal, Wonder debuted two new songs: “Can’t Put it in the Hands of Fate,” featuring Rapsody, Cordae, Chika and Busta Rhymes, and the Gary Clark Jr.-assisted track, “Where Is Our Love Song.” Proceeds from the latter song will go to the non-profit Feeding America.

Wonder was just 11 years old when music veteran, Berry Gordy, signed him to Motown in 1961. Over the last 60 years, Wonder has released more than 40 albums, which includes his 23 solo studio albums, several live albums, collaborative projects, and soundtrack albums. The Michigan native and 25-time Grammy winner has sold over 100 million records (making him one of the best-selling recording artists in history).

Last year, Wonder stepped back from the stage to undergo kidney transplant surgery. “I was blessed with a new kidney and that happened on Dec. 6, 2019,” he said during the press conference. “Since I have been released from the hospital, I've had nurses that have made sure I have my medicine on time and I'm going to take it for as long as I have to — even if it's for the rest of my life.”

“I feel great. My voice feels great,”continued Wonder. “I told my daughter, Aisha, I'm going to be like five years younger than you now.' I said, 'I'm gonna go from being 70 to like 40.’ I feel like I'm about 40 right now and I just thank everyone for their prayers and love. I'm feeling great.”

Billboard Music Awards 2020: Watch Performances From Brandy, Ty Dolla $ign, Doja Cat And More

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards went off without a hitch. Hosted by Kelly Clarkson, Wednesday's (Oct. 14) show opened with the multi-platinum selling singer performing “Higher Love” alongside Sheila E. on the drums.

The big night included performances from Brandy and Ty Dolla $ign, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Doja Cat, Sia, En Vogue, Demi Lovato, Bad Bunny, and more. Khaled, Lizzo, Lil Nas X, Billy Eilish, Post Malone ( who took home nine awards), and BTS were among the night’s big winners, along with Killer Mike, who received the first ever Billboard Change Maker Award.

Lizzo gave a powerful speech after accepting her award for Top Song Sales Artist. “I just want to say I’ve been thinking a lot about suppression and the voices that refuse to be suppressed and I wonder would I be standing here right now if it weren’t for the big Black women who refused to have their voice suppressed,” she said.

“If you’re at home right now and you’re thinking about changing yourself, this is your sign to remain who you are. When people try to suppress something, it’s because they’re afraid of your power. So whether it’s through music, protests, or your right to vote, use your power, use your voice and refuse to be suppressed.”

The socially-distanced award show, which was broadcast from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, featured a virtual audience.

Watch some of the performances below.
