Meek Mill Wants The Drama To End Between Blueface And Yung Ro

"Y’all got these young bulls arguing about nothing!!!"

A debate about financial literacy between Blueface and rising rapper Yung Ro has turned ugly, leaving Meek Mill to interfere.

Let's back things up. Last week, Yung Ro shared on social media why he's not interested in buying jewelry. Given his new deal with Meek Mill's Dreamchasers label, some fans expected him to splurge on a few diamonds. "Listen, why would I walk around with $50K worth of jewelry on my neck, and my momma ain’t got no motherf**king house, my grandma still on dialysis," he said. "How am I gonna look to them? He just spent 50K on jewelry, it takes like 30K for my grandma to get off dialysis... Man s**t crazy! No, I got to get them right then you gonna see me icing myself up, you gonna see me walking in designer shoes."

His outlook prompted praise from rappers and celebrities but it also sparked a response from "Thotiana" rapper Blueface. Known mostly for his off-beat raps and jewelry, the rapper shared with his fans why he believes investing in jewelry could help boost the image of any rapper, including Yung Ro. He also questioned the details of Ro's deal.

"If you sign a deal and you can’t afford 50K for a chain and 50K to get yo granny off dialysis an another 100K for to put down on yo momma house you shouldn’t have signed that on Cryp," he said. "Invest in ya self a chain is more than a chain in this rap s**t its all about da image it’s not about how good you rap or how good you freestyle its 2020 it’s a popularity contest you get paid based off how cool you look an how much you appeal to your fan base it’s a new rapper every 5 min you gotta stick if you want longevity in this s**t why do think people notice if you don’t have a chain?"

The two have gone back and forth after Ro shared with fans the home he purchased for his mother while mentioned Blu's very nasty incident with his mother and sister. In July, the rapper kicked them both out of his home to allegedly move in his two girlfriends. Ro also shared a video of Blueface's sister rapping about the incident.

But Meek Mill is ready for the drama to end. "Let these youngins grind and stop gassing em to beef," he tweeted on Monday (Dec. 2). "I try to be quiet but I’m watching y’all tryna line my team with these bogus tricks! I don’t want any involvement in that s**t and 'Yes I am really cut like that' I’m tryna change a law right now!"

As he continues to focus his efforts on prison reform, the Grammy-nominated artist also wants his artist to remain focused without feeling pushed to engage in rap beefs. "Stop saying Meek Mill artist, 'It’s Young Ro' and stop putting my name with that kiddy s**t.. Meek Mill on some other s**t .... Do y’all. Post the owners of these major labels when artist popping s**t on the net! Y’all got these young bulls arguing about nothing!!!"

Jada Pinkett Smith Confirms Past Relationship With August Alsina

As promised, Jada Pinkett Smith brought herself to the infamous red table but she wasn’t alone. Will Smith joined his wife to address August Alsina’s claims in a special mini-episode of Red Table Talk that premiered on Friday (July 10).

Jada confirmed that she was once in a relationship with the 27-year-old singer while “separated” from Will. According to Jada, things with Alsina started out as a platonic friendship before turning into something more.

“As time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August,” she admitted.

The actress went on to clarify that Will never August “permission” to date her. “The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself,” she said. “I could see how he would perceive it as ‘permission' because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s not a home wrecker — which he’s not.

“I was in a lot of pain. I was broken. I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside of yourself, and luckily enough, you and I were going through a process of healing in a much different manner,” Jada told Will. “I would definitely say we did everything we could to get away from each other only to realize that that wasn’t possible.”

Later in the talk, Will asked Jada what she was looking for in August. “I just wanted to feel good,” she said. “And it was really a joy just to heal somebody.”

The couple, who have been together for 25 years, also revealed their relationship mantra: “We ride together. We die together. Bad marriage for life.”
