Cardi B Releases New Single "Money"

"I was born to flex, diamonds on my neck..."

Cardi B revealed on social media Monday night (Oct. 22) that her newest single since releasing her debut album Invasion Of Privacy will drop this week. It looks like her new gift came early.

The song, titled “Money,” was expected to drop on Thursday (Oct. 25), but on Tuesday (Oct. 23), the song was released. The cover art for the single features the Bronx-bred musician squatting down in a gold-plated room with an assortment of jewels and accessories covering her arms. She has an ornate headpiece on that covers her eyes, and her elaborate tattoo is on display since she is perceivably naked.

“I was born to flex, diamonds on my neck," she says in the chorus over a piano-trap heavy beat. "...but nothin' in this world that I like more than checks." The lyrics reference claims that she "went pop," her daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus and even Black Panther's "Wakanda."

MY SINGLE “MONEY” WILL BE OUT THIS THURSDAY 12:30pm,” the “Money Bag” MC wrote on her social media pages on Monday night. Billboard reveals that in a now-deleted Instagram post, she reportedly teased the single last week.

Cardi also revealed that her husband Offset will come out with his solo album very soon. In an Instagram post of the recent Billboard top 10 songs, she wrote, ”MOMMY SHARK & DADDY SHARK #1 #2. My single coming this week, Set album coming soon.” Her collaborator and Takeoff’s Migos cohort/family member Quavo recently celebrated his solo album Quavo Huncho debuting at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.

Arrest Warrant Issued On Mother Of Nipsey Hussle's Daughter Amid Custody Case

An arrest warrant has reportedly been issued for Tanisha Foster, the mother of Nipsey Hussle's daughter, TMZ reports. The warrant was filed after Foster failed to appear in court for a DUI case.

Tanisha Foster was reportedly busted for DUI in Los Angeles a few years ago. She pled no contest to one of the charges and was sentenced to three years probation. Foster skipped out on her court date on May 15, however, which resulted in her probation being revoked and a bench warrant for her arrest being issued.

The arrest warrant was issued in the middle of Foster's battle for custody of her and Nipsey Hussle's daughter, 10-year-old Emani. Nip's sister, Samantha Smith reportedly filed for guardianship of her niece following the rapper's untimely death. Smith and the rest of Nip's family claim Foster is not a stable parent.

Both parties appeared in court last Tuesday (May 14). Foster reportedly broke down in tears after seeing her daughter for the first time in months. A judge reportedly cleared the courtroom and gave the mom and daughter 20 minutes together. A judge has yet to rule on the custody of Emani.

Report: DaBaby's Crew Allegedly Beat Stoughton Rapper Into Coma

DaBaby was forced to bail on his headlining concert at a nightclub in Lawrence, Massachusetts after his crew and another artist got into a brutal altercation.

The incident reportedly took place last Friday (May 17) at the Centro Nightclub. According to TMZ, it all started when local rapper Don Trag approached DaBaby for a photo and was turned down. Trag was reportedly on the concert bill for the night. Despite the rejection, the Trag persisted. Some witnesses said he put his hands on DaBaby's security first. In response, DaBaby's team swarmed Trag and began beating him up, Derek Lamire, the associate promoting the event for NTS Entertainment told TMZ.

In video obtained by the celebrity site, DaBaby appears to be looking on while Trag gets pummeled by his security. After the beating, the victim was reportedly taken to the hospital on a stretcher. A police spokesperson confirmed that cops responded to the scene early Saturday morning (May 18), but were unable to get witnesses to cooperate.

According to the Trag's mother, the artist returned to the hospital after passing out at her home. She said he is now in a coma fighting for his life. The victim's brother also told TMZ that Trag has significant brain and neck swelling and "is not doing well." Trag's family has reportedly contacted a lawyer about the incident.

It's unclear if DaBaby or his team will be charged in the incident.

Travis Scott Donates Merch Sales To Planned Parenthood

Many celebrities are taking a stand amid Alabama's HB 314 law, which restricts doctors from performing abortion procedures within state lines. During the 2019 Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama on Friday (May 17), Travis Scott decided to donate all of the profits from his concert merch sales to Planned Parenthood.

"I wanna donate my net profits from my merch today to Planned Parenthood," Trav announced midway through his set. Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization that provides reproductive health care to women, including pregnancy screenings and abortions. "We feel for those in Alabama. I love you all," he added. "I just want everyone to know that love is the strongest thing that we can have...So to anyone out there; man, woman. I wanna dedicate this song to you."

Travis is not the only hip-hop artist that has shared his disapproval of Alabama's abortion law. Offset, Rihanna, Waka Flocka, and Lupe Fiasco also discussed their frustrations on social media. "We should pass a bill that rapist get the death penalty," Waka wrote, while Offset compared the law to a form of slavery.

Check out Travis Scott's full announcement from the Hangout Musical Festival in the video below.
