Childish Gambino Announces U.S. Arena Tour With Rae Sremmurd

Donald Glover is ready to hit the road all over again. 

Earlier this year, Donald Glover assured everyone he would be releasing his fourth and final album as Childish Gambino before retiring the alter-ego. But the Childish Gambino era is far from over, as Glover announced a 13-date arena tour throughout the United States, where he will be teaming up with Rae Sremmurd for the month of September. Other than an appearance at Governor's Ball last summer and an intimate show on the eve of the Grammy Awards this year, this marks Gambino's first tour in support of his Grammy-nominated 2016 album, Awaken, My Love!.

In the meantime, much of the 34-year-old's schedule is booked up with other endeavors. The "Terrified" artist has been cast to play the role of Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story movie, which will be hitting theaters in late May. The RCA Records artist has also been holed up on the set of The Lion King remake, where he is portraying the young king, Simba.

Glover's busy production schedule pushed his Atlanta series on a nearly two-year hiatus, as season two returned last Thursday (March 1) on FX. Donald was recently profiled in The New Yorker, where he also divulged on how he "Trojan-horsed" executives into green-lighting the show, in addition to a multitude of other topics.

Tory Lanez Sued For Alleged Attack In Miami Nightclub

Tory Lanez is facing legal trouble over an alleged altercation that went down inside Miami’s LIV nightclub last year. Christopher “Prince” Harty, an up-and-coming artist and Miami promoter who appeared on Love & Hip-Hop: Miami claims that Lanez attacked him last November.

The onetime reality star alleges that Lanez, along with his entourage and security team, punched and attacked him in the nightclub. According to reports, Prince claims to have suffered blunt force trauma to his head, neck, and chest, in addition to contusions, bruises and anxiety, as a result of the incident. He is suing for unspecified damages.

“They backed me into a corner, and once I was there, they started stomping on me, jumping me,” he recalled to NBC Miami.

He believes that the friction stemmed from an Instagram post about music. “They felt that I was insinuating that they stole the record from me, and I was just like, no, I would never do that, that was never my intention. I had no issue with him at all.”

A portion of the incident was captured on cellphone video. Prince stated that he knew Lanez prior to the run-in, and helped get him into clubs before.

His attorney, Marwan Porter of Porter Law Firm, called the violent incident “a chronic problem” with Lanez who is accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July. The 28-year-old recording artist has yet to publicly address either incident.

Cardi B Opens Up About Filing For Divorce From Offset

Cardi B took to Instagram Live on Friday (Sept. 18) to air out a few things about filing for divorce from Offset.

The Bronx rapper made it clear that she didn’t file for divorce as a publicity stunt to promote her upcoming album. “I’m not doing it for clout and on top of that I don’t need stunts to sell music,” she said. “I’m not [trying to] brag but don’t ever say I’m doing anything for clout. My first album is three-times platinum and I didn’t need no stunts to do that. My [“Wap”] single is no. 1 worldwide why would I need stunts to sell music? I don’t need stunts — [especially] when it comes to family — to sell anything, so don’t play yourself.”

As for the reason for the divorce filing, the estranged couple simply grew apart. “Nothing crazy out of this world happened, sometimes people really do grow apart. I been with this man for four years. I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man…sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments and the build up. You get tired sometimes and before something happens, you leave.”

“I just wanna' be a free bird,” Cardi said after questioning whether people secretly want infidelity to be the reason for the split.

“I am the f**king clout,” she added. “I never needed anything. I never needed no stunts to sell sh*t.Why would I need anything to sell my next album?”

Speaking of the new album, Cardi has been indecisive about choosing her next single because “WAP” did so well. “That means that my second single has to be even better.”

Towards the end of her venting session, Cardi reiterated that she’s focusing on her work, and revealed that she's starting new business for her daughter Kulture.
