Rumor Report: Cardi B And Meek Mill Spotted In The Studio?

Ooh.

It looks like Bronx-bred MC Cardi B and Philly's very own Meek Mill have been hard at work in the studio together whipping up new material.

According to TMZ, "Cardi recently stepped into the studio with none other than Meek Mill to lay down some material that'll be used in a forthcoming song. We're told they cranked out hooks and verses -- all of which is fair game for a final product that's yet to be released."

While it's not entirely clear what they were actually working on, Meek does in fact have a new album in the works, and last week, they spotted rubbing elbows and talking it up during Billboard's 2018 R&B Hip-Hop Power Players party. Plus, they're both apart of Atlantic Records, so a joint track is certainly not far-fetched.

If this is indeed a collaboration, this has the potential to be a huge hit. However, it also adds fuel to the massive flame between Bardi and current nemesis, Nicki Minaj, who is Meek Mill's ex-girlfriend. The twosome were embroiled in a war of words that turned physical during New York Fashion Week last month, rumored to have been started over Minaj "liking" comments about Cardi's parenting skills.

'Us' Nabs Title Of Biggest Opening Weekend For An Original Horror Film

Jordan Peele’s second major film Us dropped over the weekend (Mar. 22), and much like its predecessor Get Out, it’s a monster of a hit.

According to reports, Us’ debut was the best opening for an original horror film in history, bringing in $70.25 million during its opening weekend. Its massively successful weekend also secures its spot as the third-best horror movie debut in history, behind the remakes of It and Halloween.

“Internationally, “Us” earned $16.7 million, bringing its total worldwide tally to $86.9 million,” reports CNBC.

Us tells the story of Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong’o), a woman who is traumatized by an experience she had as a child. When unexpected visitors who look exactly like her and her family pay a visit to their beach house several years later, she, her husband (Winston Duke) and children have to help her combat her fears and demons.

CNBC reveals that early projections for her film were close to $50 million. However, strong ticket sales prompted analysts to change their estimates.

"The film took in $29 million between Thursday previews and Friday night showings, a strong start for a horror film that doesn’t have the benefit of a major franchise fueling ticket sales," the report continues.

Attorney Michael Avenatti Charged With Reportedly Attempting To Extort Nike

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who is representing many women in the high-profile R. Kelly criminal sexual abuse case, was arrested and charged with reportedly attempting to extort millions of dollars out of Nike. He is being charged with wire and bank fraud.

Avenatti was taken into custody in New York, and is alleged to have threatened to cancel a press conference if Nike did not pay a client $1.5 million, in addition to hiring him and a co-conspirator to conduct an internal investigation for a fee of over $10 million. According to the Wall Street Journal, the co-conspirator is celebrity attorney Mark Garagos, who was hired as a member of Jussie Smollett’s legal defense team.

“Before news of his charges, Avenatti posted a tweet saying he would be holding a press conference to disclose a ‘major high school/college basketball scandal’ perpetrated by Nike that he claimed to have uncovered,” Bloomberg News reports. “’This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball.’”

Prosecutors say that Avenatti, who also represented Stormy Daniels in her high-profile case against Donald Trump, was reportedly working with an “amateur basketball coach” whose team had a contract with Nike.

Earlier this year, Avenatti reportedly received a tape of R. Kelly having sex with a teenage girl, which is reportedly being used as evidence in the musician’s sexual abuse case, which is currently underway in Chicago.

Big Sean Shares How Therapy Helped Him Find Clarity

Big Sean has reached a new point in his life and career that provided a much-needed moment of clarity. The Detroit native shared personal news on Instagram that he sought therapy in order to re-center his focus. The revelation arrived a day before his 31st birthday (March 25).

In a trio of Instagram video messages, the "One Man Can Change The World" rapper explained his stance and what he was missing from his life that led him to contract professional assistance. "I got a good therapist," he said. "I was blessed enough to talk to some super spiritual people, and they made me realize one thing that I was missing in my life, one thing I was missing was clarity...clarity about who was around me, what I was doing. Even the music which is my happiness, my joy, that was always an escape for me, was starting to feel like a burden. It was starting to feel like a job."

In a previous interview with Billboard, Big Sean revealed his battle with not only depression but also anxiety. "I never really took the time out to nurture myself, to take care of myself. It took me a lot of depression having a lot of anxiety to realize something was off," he said. "I've been getting myself together, getting my mind right, so I have been taking better care of myself," he continued before stating he was working on music.

That sentiment was echoed in Sean's recent revelation, assuring fans that he's still nurturing his passion for music. The last full-length project, Double or Nothing with producer Metro Boomin, was released in 2017.
