    Steve Harvey is being sued by a guy who claims he was hired by the TV mogul to raise $20 million for the Steve and Marjorie Foundation as well as other ventures and got royally stiffed.

    Vincent Dimmock claims he struck a deal with Harvey in April to raise the $20 mil, and in return he says he was promised 12.5% of everything he brought in. Dimmock says in the lawsuit he had access to high-level execs, A-list entertainers and political figures including a former President, and he got pledges for $20 mil.

    According to the suit, Dimmock delivered on the first million but Harvey refused to pay him his commission.

    Dimmock claims Harvey never intended to pay him and then goes on to make various allegations.

    Dimmock says he introduced Harvey to an investor in May, and during their meeting he allegedly disparaged women, blamed Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry for giving him bad financial advice and also blamed Barack Obama for Harvey’s “disastrous meeting with Donald Trump.”

    He says Harvey and his foundation were in bad financial shape because of a series of P.R. gaffes, including mocking Asian men and meeting with Trump.

    We reached out to Harvey’s agent, Todd Frank, who tells TMZ, “It sounds fake. Steve is the most loyal guy in the world. I’ve never been stiffed on a commission from Steve Harvey in 21 years.”

    Jeezy has resurfaced on the scene with two singles with rap newbie Tee Grizzley and the legendary Puff Daddy, sparking speculation that his eighth studio album would be on the way. Last week, the Atlanta rapper announced his project Pressure with its accompanying cover art. Jeezy is keeping the momentum going by revealing the project’s full tracklist along with its star-studded lineup on Instagram. “#PRESSURE 12/15 pre-order Now JeezyShop.com #TrustYaProcess#SnowSeason,” he captioned the photo.

    The album will contain thirteen tracks, and with the number of features, Jeezy will only be performing solo on four tracks. Apart from “Cold Summer” featuring Tee Grizzley and “Bottles Up” featuring Diddy, which we’ve heard already, the album will also feature guest appearances from artists Payroll Giovanni, Kendrick Lamar, Trey Songz, Wizkid, J. Cole, Kodak Black, YG, 2 Chainz, Tory Lanez, and Rick Ross. It’s always interesting how ahead of social commentary Jeezy has been with his previous projects, how he incorporates these names should make for another solid project.

    Jeezy and T.I. Recently revealed that they were interested in completing their collaborative project Dope Boy Academy if Jeezy is working on music that could happen come the new year.

    Take a look at the tracklisting above, what track are you most anticipating? In the meantime, Pressure is slated to stop December 15th.

    In light of the highly charged protests by NFL players which involve taking a knee during the National Anthem, hip-hop legend Luther Campbell hopped on Instagram to point out what he sees as hypocritic behavior by the players.

    “My message to NFL players how could you take a knee and say you’re protesting systemic racism when you have a white agent some who are well-documented in their share of broke players,” Uncle Luke wrote on Tuesday.

    The 2 Live Crew rhymer accompanied his post with the iconic photo of athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos raising their fists in a Black Power salute at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City.

    “Now for the player’s that put up the black power fist in protest. Putting up the Black Fist is Black Power empowerment of black people. How do you put up the black power fist when you don’t support empowerment of black people by not hiring black representation or even interviewing them. That’s why I owners don’t respect your opinion,” wrote Campbell.

    On Monday it was reported that the NFL had attempted to bribe players in an effort to end the ratings-damaging protests, offering up $100 million to causes including the United Negro College Fund.

    After weeks of Eminem’s new album being teased in the form of an elaborate joke based around a fake prescription medication used to treat “Atrox Rithimus,” the release date for Revival has finally been disclosed.

    On Tuesday, Dr. Dre posted a video to his Instagram which at first glance appeared to be another “Revival” medication spoof. This one was special, however, because it features company spokesperson Trevor announcing what we’ve known all along – Revival is the name of Eminem’s upcoming album – and something we didn’t know until now: the album will be dropping on Dec. 15.

    “If you happen to run into me out on the street, please don’t ask me anything about the album,” says Trevor in the reveal video. “Em told me he likes to keep people guessing. Just kidding, I…don’t know s**t…I’ve never met Eminem.”

    “Walk on Water” featuring Beyonce is the only single to be released from the album so far. The Detroit rapper gave an emotional performance of the track while appearing as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live earlier this month, with frequent collaborator Sklar Grey filling in for Bey.

    Em also performed his classic hits “Stan” and “Love the Way You Lie,” with Grey performing Rihanna’s part.

    Check out the reveal video up top.

    HOLLYWOOD, CA - DECEMBER 08: Big Sean (L) and Naya Rivera arrive at the 15th Annual Trevor Project Benefit held at Hollywood Palladium on December 8, 2013 in Hollywood, California. (Photo by Michael Tran/FilmMagic)

    Big Sean (L) and Naya Rivera were once engaged.

    Detroit rapper, Big Sean, was once engaged to Naya Rivera, one of the stars of the hit show Glee. Naya was in a relationship with the rapper from March 2013 to April 2014. At one point, they were planning to marry but their wedding was called off. In her autobiography, Sorry Not Sorry, Rivera claims that Big Sean called off their wedding via the internet after she caught him alone with,  Ariana Grande.

    We’d been fighting for five straight days while he was traveling, and then on the one day that he was back in LA, he said he didn’t want to see me,” she wrote in her autobiography Sorry, Not Sorry, in which she also reveals how she had an abortion while filming Glee. Well, asshole, I’ve got a key to your house. I walk in, go downstairs, and guess what little girl is sitting cross-legged on the couch listening to music? It rhymes with ‘Smariana Schmande.’

    The Diplomats are back! The legendary rap group released a new Heatmakerz-produced track entitled “Once Upon A Time” and it gives us all the late 1990s- early 2000s Harlem feels.

    Only Jim Jones and Cam’ron appear on the song. But, their barz sound as hot as ever. Jones spits: “Try to blackball me, so I ask him where the hoop at (ballin’)/ In the SOHO in LA asking the valet where the coupe at (what up with that?)/ 80 for the jet that meet with Jay and then I flew back (facts)/ The Ace of Spade. they put up on my tab a extra two stacks/ Signing my deal, they asked if I would sign for a mil (for what?).”

    Cam’ron jumps in and says the most shocking part of the entire song. “No disrespecting the ladies, word from my team (why),” Killa Cam raps. “That’s the reason Dame smacked Harvey Weinstein/ On the set of Paid In Full, y’all gave him hell about it/ Some foul s**t happened once, Capo, tell ’em about it.”

    With this verse, Killa confirmed that Dash fought Weinstein on the set of 2002’s Paid In Full, which Weinstein was involved with producing, along with the Roc-A-Fella co-founder. Back then, many knew that the two clashed onset of the movie. So, in light of all of the recent sexual assault allegations surrounding the disgraced Hollywood exec, Cam decided to speak about the altercation on The Diplomats’ new song. Listen to “Once Upon A Time” below.

    **WARNING: Explicit language**

    Just last month, Dash also did an interview discussing his beef with Weinstein from years ago. You can check that out below, as well.

    Well, well, well.

    Here we are again, speculating about whether Toni Braxton secretly jumped the broom with Brian “Birdman” Williams.

     

     

    The legendary singer was spotted with a huge piece of artillery on her left hand during Sunday night’s taping of the 2017 Soul Train Music Awards.

    The lovebirds have repeatedly denied that they took the long walk to the chapel, but the flash from this gigantic ring has us asking questions. Braxton was on hand to perform and accept the Don Cornelius Award at the ceremony, bringing along sons Diezel and Denimas her dates.

     

     

    So what do you think beauties, is Ms. Braxton now Mrs. Williams?

    Meek Mill
    11.6.2017 

    Meek Mill is going to prison.

    A Philadelphia judge has sentenced the rapper to 2-4 years in prison for violating the terms of his probation on a 2009 drug and weapons case, according to TMZ.

    The Wins & Losses rapper, born Robert Williams, learned his fate during a court appearance on Monday (Nov. 6). The sentence follows an arrest for fighting at a St. Louis airport and for reckless driving in New York City.

    Meek previously violated probation in 2014, when he was sentenced to 3-6 months in jail. “Sir, I didn’t want to do this but you made me do this,” said Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley at the time. “After all the years I tried to get you on the right track.”

    In 2015, he violated parole due to unapproved travel and urine test failure. The following year, he was sentenced to three months house arrest, which was eventually extended because of his inability to complete community service duties.

    Tyrese can breathe a little easier, because the investigation by child services into the alleged beating of his 10-year-old daughter has been closed.

    Sources close to Tyrese tell The Blast the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services closed their investigation and will not be seeking any criminal charges against the actor.

    The investigation was initially launched as protocol after Tyrese’s ex-wife, Norma Gibson, claimed in documents he hit their daughter so hard she was unable to sit afterwards.

    Tyrese and Norma have been locked in court for the majority of the past two weeks, and the drama has been non-stop.

    From flying planes over schools, to hospital visits and crying videos, the ex-couple continues to battle over the permanent restraining order and custody agreement.

    They are all currently in court, we’ll keep you updated as we get more info.
