Irv Gotti Claims Trump & Racists Want Their White Women Back

The rapper claims the Kardashians/Jenner's alliance with hip-hop is driving old white men's racism. 

As Charlottesville became the new epicenter of racism and bigotry in the United States this past weekend, many searched for solutions and ways to explain the horrific displays of violence and hate. While Trump seemed to be at a loss for words, Irv Gotti offered his take on the current racial tensions, attributing its downward spiral to the Kardashian and Jenner family. According to the rapper, the family's – namely Kylie Jenner – alliance with hip-hop culture and their influence on a majority of today's youth is triggering old, racist white men.

In a rather lengthy post on Instagram, which has now been deleted, Irv Gotti spelled out exactly what he meant. He suggested Kylie's fondness for dating rappers like Tyga and Travis Scott is fueling a lot of the hatred we see in the news. "Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner’s daughter. Arguably the HOTTEST CHICK ON THE PLANET!! Dated Tyga!! Now dating Travis Scott!! 2 RAP N****S!! I think when Trump says. LETS MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. I think he is saying LETS GET OUR WOMEN BACK," Irv exclaimed in the message. "Cause the Hip Hop Culture has fu**ed up the whole sh*t. F**k it. I’m gonna say it. THE KARDASHIAN CLAN AND THE TWO JENNER DAUGHTERS. Has f***ed up the whole world."

The rapper says people shouldn't take his comments as shade though; Gotti has an affinity for Kylie and her sisters, as well as an admiration for Kris Jenner's management skills. Even so, he suggests white men and their families cannot stand the idea of their 15-year-old daughters following in their footsteps to date black men and align themselves with hip-hop. "Please anyone. This isn’t a message bashing the Kardashians Or Kylie and Kendall. They are dope to me," Gotti continued. "They are a part of this thing called Hip Hop CULTURE. So I love them and their success. Kris Jenner is a f**king Genius to me. I’m just stating what Racist Old White Men are mad about. It’s crystal clear."

While the Kardashian/Jenners undoubtedly have a mega influence on the younger generation and have successfully infiltrated the culture within the last couple of years, it's really hard to pinpoint them as catalysts of racism. Contrary to Gotti's comments, racism has been thriving far before the Kardashians eyed their first cute black guy or got their first set of cornrows. And the terrorist events that erupted in Charlottesville were simply a result of white supremacy rearing its ugly head.

Ty Dolla $ign Releases New Album Feat. Nicki Minaj, Roddy Ricch, Kanye West And More

After a three-year album hiatus, Ty Dolla $ign released his latest studio effort, Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, on Friday (Oct. 23).

The 25-track album features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi, FKA Twigs, Roddy Ricch, Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, 6lack, Young Thug, Music Soulchild, Skrillex, Quavo, Anderson Paak, Post Malone, Kanye West, and more.

Powered by previously released singles, “Ego Death,” Expensive” and By Yourself,” the new album flexes a different music muscle for the Grammy-nominated recording artists who steered clear of  making club records.

“I was intentionally trying to not make club songs [talking about] hoes and *itches and all the sh*t I used to talk about,” Ty told Vulture in a recent interview. “I was trying to, like, talk about my life, and what it is now, and really do something different with it. I got a daughter going to high school this year, and she’s paying attention, and all her friends are paying attention, so I can’t talk as crazy or do the crazy sh*t that I used to do.”

Kehlani Plays Bryson Tiller’s Love Interest In “Always Forever” Video

Kehlani stars as Tiller’s love interest in the intimate new music video for “Always Forever,” released on Thursday (Oct. 22).

The stunning visual, directed by Glenn Michael of Toronto’s Kid Studio, is a creative take on how a relationship can become your entire universe. Tyler and Kehlani cuddle up, kiss, and hold hand in the steamy visual, prompting some fans to question the chemistry between the two. They might look pretty cozy, but Kehlani and Tiller are just friends (Tiller welcomed a child with girlfriend Kendra Bailey last year).

Thank you for being solid.”

The post was deleted after fans in the comments continued to speculate if the two were an item. Kehlani shared a follow-up message on her Instagram Story explaining in part, “I post lengthy captions about all my friends. You would have to follow me to know that.”

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.
