Troy Ave Released From Hospital

Troy Ave has been released from the hospital. Yesterday the New York rapper walked out of Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center. He was being treated there after being shot in both the head and the back on Christmas day.

Ave then posted a video to his Instagram saying,

“Shot in my head, shot in my back, GOD is Great Ya boi is back. From the bottom of my heart thank y’all 4 all the prayers.”

His lawyer John Stella told The New York Daily News Troy still has a bullet in his head and back.

“He is very sore the doctors told the family that he came dangerously close to having a spinal cord injury — but it looks like there’s no lasting damage from the wound track.”

The detectives say Troy and his girlfriend were stopped at an intersection in Brooklyn on Christmas day when an unidentified man approached the vehicle and started firing. His girlfriend was unharmed.

It’s been a long road for Chris Brown and Karrueche. They’ve been through plenty of break ups since 2012. However, last year the pair decided to end their relationship for good after Chris Brown had his baby Royalty from another woman.

But most recently in March, the two were involved in an heated argument on social media. Although, this wouldn’t be the first time Chris Brown has publicly addressed his ex. He shouted her out on the Usher and Zayn-assisted remix to “Back to Sleep” earlier this year. He said,

“You want me to say your name girl / OK, Karrueche.”

Kylie Jenner & Tyga Express Their Love In New Video

It’s no secret that Kylie Jenner and Tyga love the attention. The couple gave their fans a real look into their relationship during a short film called, “KYLIE.” Up close and personal the Venice-shot clip is actually a three-minute profile of Kylie. In the video Kylie is shown almost fully naked in a wet T-shirt while Tyga embraces her beauty.

The director of the video Sasha Samsanova explained to W magazine,

“It’s like you’re watching this person from a point of view that has never been seen before.”

Samsanova also said,

“It’s super raw footage, as soon as my shoots with Kylie come out, so many people write on my page and rant about how it’s all Photoshop, Photoshop, Photoshop. But the thing about this video is that there’s no post-production work whatsoever. It’s only cut together. It’s very raw, and we tried to keep it that way—no skin retouching, nothing.”

Although, Tyga only appears briefly in the video, caressing Kylie. The couple also make out during the end of the video. A while back when the two started dating, many people criticized their big age difference. Since then, the couple have gone through plenty of ups and downs in the public.

Nicki Minaj Will Replace J.Lo For New Year’s Eve Party


Nicki Minaj will be closing out 2016 with a bang! The rap queen has been chosen to host a New Year’s Eve party in Miami. In place of Jennifer Lopez.

J.Lo was originally scheduled to perform another New Year’s Eve bash, but she eventually backed out of what could have been a million-dollar payout.  According to TMZ it’s unclear how much Nicki will receive for the job, but it’s “significantly less.”

However, J.Lo will be celebrating the New Year at her Bel-Air home with her kids and family. An insider said,

“She was just so consumed with ‘Shades of Blue,’ her concert, and other obligations, getting on a plane for New Year’s just seemed too much, She wanted some personal and family time during the holidays.”

However, Nicki Minaj is ready for this event, and she has full approval of its promo picture. Not only is this event huge for Nicki, it’s also the night her concert special, “The Pinkprint Tour” is set to air on BET.

New Music: @TRINArockstarr – ‘Caroline’ Remix

The queen of Miami is back with a remix to “Caroline.” Rapping over hip hop artist Amine’s hit song,  she made it clear who the baddest bitch was, like she always does.

“Holy shit, this bitch is lit / It’s looking like it’s about time to fuck it up.”

While she may like the song, she also has a message for the song’s muse.

“I don’t want the fame, I just want the money.” “That bitch Caroline, that ho was a dummy / I ain’t ever laid down with a broke ass ni**a…I’m about my money.”

Amine’s song, “Caroline” has been a hit all this year, and reached No.12 on the Billboard Hot 100.

This remix is on Dynasty 6. Which dropped earlier this month on Trina’s 38th birthday.

Listen to “Caroline” remix now.

Eminem Previews His New Single

Is the real slim shady back with some new music? or was it a joke? He previewed some new music yesterday. Appearing on Shade 45’s annual “Hanukkah Radio” with Paul Rosenberg and DJ Whoo Kid. While his new single might have provoked a laugh. It sure wouldn’t of been the first time rapper Eminem has made some cruel lyrics.

In fact, some of Eminem’s best songs have had cruel lyrics in them. Songs like, “Cum on Everybody,” and “A** Like That.” Back in October he mentioned that a new album was in the works. He tweeted,

“Don’t worry, I’m working on an album! Here’s something meanwhile.”

Then he dropped his song, “Campaign Speech.” Which is an 8-minute song with plenty of crude rhymes. His new album currently has no release date. However, this will be his first album since 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
