The Game And Meek Mill Squash Beef: "I Support Everything Hip-Hop"

The war is over. 

While many fans were focused on Meek Mill's previous beef with Drake, it turns out Meek was also engaged in another feud with The Game. But in the spirit of new beginnings, Game revealed on Monday (Dec. 3) that their feud is finally over nearly three years after it began.

"Had beef wit a n***a that could’ve ended in bloodshed either way," The Game wrote in a post about his beef with Meek on Instagram. "We had differences but when it all boiled down, we were once friends in & out of music. As young African American men we grew up in similar situations where a lifespan for us was 21 years of age & that is still the age in which most of us coming from where we come from think we’ll never make it to."

He went on to express how happy he is that Meek is out of jail. "I say all that to say, life is short & the day after @meekmill got out of jail, he called me & we talked for an hour.. not about the beef but about new beginnings & what the future holds for us as seasoned hip hop artists," he continued. "That was a few months back & my n***a has done everything he said he would do in the conversation we had. Real n***a shit, I never wished jail on you & I was genuinely happy when you got released."

For those who are a little behind on the drama, Meek and Game's beef reportedly stems from an incident that went down at a club in 2016. "It was Meek's first time back in L.A. since his whole house arrest and he couldn't move," he told Billboard at the time. Things went downhill after Game sent a bottle over to Meek's table and encouraged him to leave the club early so he didn't get robbed.

"Meek leaves the club, then an hour later, Sean Kingston gets robbed, knocked in the head. [They] took his jewelry, ran through his crew so we left," Game added. "Later, Sean Kingston called me 15 minutes after that and he was like 'Game, that's f**ked up. Meek told me you set me up'... I [privy] you to what was going on in the city so you could cover your ass and just be aware," he said of Meek, "and then you went and turned that into something else."

This isn't the only beef that Meek has squashed this year. He also made up with Drake in Sept. 2018. Shoutout to rappers breaking bread and getting along for the sake of the culture. Check out The Game's full post below.

Janet Jackson To Be Inducted Into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Janet Jackson is among the many musicians who will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 2019 class.

Ms. Jackson, Radiohead, The Cure, Stevie Nicks, Roxy Music, Def Leppard, and the Zombies are the very talented musicians who will be honored at the 34th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The highly-coveted ceremony will be held on Mar. 29 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Jackson, whose career spans several decades, responded to the exciting news with a tweet. “We did it u guys,” she wrote with a purple heart. “Thank U for all your love and support. #RockHall2019.”

This has been a banner year for Jackson. Earlier this year, she performed at the 2018 Essence Festival, Billboard Music Awards, Panorama Music Festival, and the Global Citizens Festival. She also teamed up with Reggaeton artist Daddy Yankee for a new single, “Made For Now.”

“I'm deeply humbled and grateful for this award. I believe for all the challenges we live at a glorious moment in history,” she said during her Icon Award acceptance speech at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. “It's a moment at long last that's made it clear that we will no longer be controlled, manipulated or abused."

Congrats to all of the inductees.

Sir Elton John Covers Khalid's "Young Dumb And Broke"

Khalid has had the opportunity to cover songs from some legendary musicians like Tracy Chapman. Now, the tables have turned. Sir Elton John recently covered the Texan’s 2017 hit “Young Dumb & Broke.”

The “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” musician reworked Khalid’s American Teen track for the Spotify Singles series. In a statement, he praised the young musician’s growth, and he called the song “one of [his] favorites.” Khalid can be heard at the end of the Elton version singing along.

“I discovered Khalid’s music a few years ago, and have been a fan ever since,” Sir Elton wrote. “We finally met when I played his home town of El Paso last year. It’s a thrill to be a small part of any new artist’s journey, and it’s been wonderful to see his star continue to rise and rise. ‘Young Dumb & Broke’ is a fabulous song, one of my favorites, and I’m really pleased that he liked my cover enough to contribute vocals.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Sir Elton has praised members of the newer generation of music. His song “Rocket Man” is sampled in Young Thug’s On The Rvn EP. In the past, he’s sung Thugger’s praises, namely in a 2015 interview with Noisey, where he noted he enjoyed how he pushed the boundaries of hip-hop.

Miley Cyrus Is Making Music With Mike Will Made It Again After Dissing Hip-Hop

Miley Cyrus recently revealed she’ll be reuniting with Mike Will Made It on her upcoming album, which could be considered a controversial move since shunning hip-hop last year. In a recent interview with the radio station 95.5 PLJ, Cyrus explained that her next album will feature a wide range of genres, one of being hip-hop.

“A song that [Mark Ronson] and I have done together is more rock driven, modern Debbie Harry or Joan Jett,” she said. “Then we've got songs with Mike Will [Made It] that lean more hip-hop and songs with Andrew Wyatt that lean more pop/alternative. I just have kind of everything."

This revelation comes a year after the former Hannah Montana star called out hip-hop and distanced herself from the genre in a interview with Billboard, which prompted many to label her as a culture vulture.

“But I also love that new Kendrick [Lamar] song [‘Humble’]: ‘Show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks,’” she said in the interview. “I love that because it’s not ‘Come sit on my d**k, suck on my c**k.’ I can’t listen to that anymore. That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my c**k’ — I am so not that.”

For her fourth-album Bangerz, the former Hannah Montana star called on Mike Will to executive produce the effort. Pharrell Williams and will.i.am to work on the production. French Montana, Future, Nelly and Ludacris were also featured artists on the project.

Cyrus’s recent country-pop/rock effort, Younger Now, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 with 45,000 equivalent units sold in its first week. The project as a whole failed to garner any certification from the RIAA.
