Tierra Whack, Rapsody And More Praise Cardi B For Unity Among Female Rappers

Thursday night (July 11), Cardi B took to her favorite social media platform to shut down Jermaine Dupri's disparaging comments about female rappers but also gave credit to her peers like Rapsody and Tierra Whack.

"There's a lot of female rappers that be rapping they a** off that don't be talking about their p***y and y'all don't be supporting them and they mad dope," Cardi said while shining a light on Grammy-nominated artists like Rapsody and Tierra Whack. She also gave a shoutout to Cali's Kamaiyah and rising rapper Chika, also known as Oranicuhh.

"Let me tell y'all about some rappers that are really f***ing dope, that be rapping they a** off. I don't feel like they get the recognition that they deserve," she added.

"It takes a village," Rapsody wrote in an Instagram post about Cardi's video. "Reals [sic] ones always rise. Stay your authentic self always Cardi B. People ask me about the state of Hip Hop and women in it all the time. My answer is always it’s BEAUTIFUL! There are sooooo many dope ladies rockin! To the sisterhood....keep doing YOU....there’s room for us all," she continued.

In her Instagram stories Whack echoed the same sentiments. "This is the most thurlest move I've seen in a while! Thanks so much for sharing your platform queen!" Kamaiyah called Cardi her "best friend" and thanked her for "rockin with [her]" in response to the video on her Instagram page.

Chika and Doja Cat were a bit more sassy with their words since they also took Dupri's comments into account.

On Twitter Chika, whose social media handle is @Oranicuhh, used a thread to express why she felt Dupri was in the wrong for his comments. "What JD said was absolutely wrong. You shouldn't have to be spoon-fed female rappers. If he actually cared, he'd seek them out," she tweeted. "It's not his fault, it really does fall on the consumers (no shade) cuz we all be rapping our a**es off.  Y'all gotta support it too."

After jokingly calling Dupri the "best female rapper alive" in her Instagram stories, Doja Cat then went into a spiel in which she said, "Poppa Jam Jam let me tell you something, listen to me," she said. "You have to listen to music to know that it exists. The f**king ignorance is amazing to me. If you were right, then how do I know so many female rappers that are so qualified, and so talented and so clever, who don't just talk about sex, like I do. But there are women out there who talk about other things, sounds sexist."

It's safe to say the So So Def owner had it coming. Take this "scandal" as an opportunity to listen to dope voices of the female rappers mentioned, and prove Dupri wrong.

Baltimore Cop Under Investigation For Intentionally Coughing At Residents In Public Housing Complex

The Baltimore Police Department has launched an internal investigation after an officer was filmed intentionally coughing at residents while walking through a public housing complex in Southeast Baltimore.

“The Department takes COVID-19 very seriously and we do not condone any action by our members which may be perceived as making light of the COVID-19 pandemic, ” the Department said in a statement on Monday (April 6) according to CNN.

Video footage of the incident picks up as the officer walks towards a woman who addresses him as “officer friendly with the cherry cheeks.” The officer doesn’t respond verbally but begins coughing at the woman and continues coughing without covering his mouth as he walks past numerous residents.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison called the footage “disturbing.”

“It is not only disturbing, but incomprehensible, especially considering the high-level of strong and clear guidance that we have provided from the beginning, regarding COVID-19,”  Harrison said in the statement. “Members are always expected to be sensitive and professional to the community, but what we saw in the video is alarming because this pandemic is affecting lives not only nationally, worldwide, but right here in our own police department.”

The BPD confirmed on Monday that at least eight police officers and two civilian employees tested positive for COVID-19. According to WBAL-TV, 94 officers have been cleared to return to work after the department quarantined 305 officers amid the pandemic.

Kanye West, Mariah Carey And Tyler Perry To Join Joel Osteen For Virtual Easter Sunday Service

Joel Osteen is amping up the star power for Easter Sunday. Kanye West, Mariah Carey and Tyler Perry will join the Lakewood Church pastor’s virtual church service to be streamed online this Sunday (April 12).

“I don’t know that I did it too much. It just all came in to place,” Osteen told TMZ Live on Wednesday (April 8). The 57-year-old faith leader revealed that he’s known Carey “from years past” and that she reached out to him about paying tribute to healthcare workers and to do her part to “uplift the nation” during the coronavirus pandemic. Perry will be submitting a five-minute inspirational message, according to Osteen.

Although it’s unclear how West will contribute to the service, Osteen implied that the rapper’s Sunday Service choir will be involved. “I’m not so sure exactly what he’s going to do but he sent me a couple of pictures where it looks like they’re going to keep with the social distancing,” Osteen said of West and his choir. “He’ll figure out some way to do it. He just talked about wanting to partner with us on Easter to bring hope and inspiration to people.

“Especially when people are down and afraid I think this is a good time to lift people up,” added Osteen.

West and Osteen have teamed up before. The “Jesus Is King” rapper made an appearance at Lakewood Church last November where he addressed the congregation about his spiritual journey. The religious duo were reportedly  planned to take the show on the road for a tour of some sort.

Rapper And Model Chynna Rogers Dies at 25

Philly MC and model, Chynna has died, sources close to rapper confirmed.

“I can regrettably confirm Chynna passed away,” her manager John Miller told Stereogum via email. He added that her family said, “Chynna was deeply loved and will be sorely missed”.

The 25-year-old got her start in the industry after she signed to Ford Models when she was 14-years-old. On weekends, she'd travel New York City with the late A$AP Yams. It was the producer and creative who inspired the "seasonal depression" rapper to pursue her music career.

In the 2013, made waves with her single, "Selfie," followed by the hard-knocking "Glen Coco," before releasing her EP, I'm Not Here. This Isn't Happening in 2015. Two years later, Ms. Rogers released her EP, Music 2 Die 2 .

It's no secret that she struggled with opiate addiction. Back in 2017, the late rapper told VIBE that she was three years sober.

"I felt crazy. I didn't want to be a statistic. I didn't want to go out that way and people be like: 'I told you so," or glamorize it [drugs], because I don't feel like that," Chynna said to VIBE. "It was nerve-wracking to be open, but when you see how many more people who are dealing with the same thing, it's good to have some kind of example of someone you didn't expect to be going through it."

Chynna went on to explain how having a support system was instrumental in her battling addiction. "It was hard," she said. "I had to go away for a minute and I did detox, but it was a matter of having a really good support system of family and friends."

chynna you were fuckin hilarious bro... today was our last exchange of jokes & those i will miss the most. i can’t believe it idk how to

i love you. so very much.

my heart is officially iced.
