JAY-Z’s “Brooklyn’s Finest” with Biggie Smalls started Tupac beef, Irv Gotti reveals

REVOLT’s “The Fat Joe Show” is one show from which people expect interesting stories from popular hip hop stars. Irv Gotti’s recent appearance saw the entrepreneur speaking about the initiation of JAY-Z’s former fued with the late Tupac Shakur.

Irv stated that the rapper’s collaboration with The Notorious B.I.G. on “Brooklyn’s Finest” initiated the popular beef between both the rappers, and he added that he was, at first, against the idea of JAY-Z doing the song.

He added that doubts were cast upon the ability of Hov to hold his own in a collaboration with Biggie. Moreover, there was also a worry that he may be dragged into the tension Big had with Tupac.

“That’s why ‘Pac was shitting on JAY because of ‘Brooklyn’s Finest,’” he said. “If Fay had twins/She’d probably have two Pacs,” he continued. “Get it? and JAY’s on the record with him so now he’s like, ‘Fuck you, ain’t no n-gga like me, fuck JAY-Z,’ and he starts bombing on JAY.”

Eventually, Tupac dissed JAY-Z in a few subsequent tracks. However, JAY’s clapback was not released due to the California rapper’s death.

“It never came out out of respect for the fact that he died,” DJ Clark Kent said in a past episode of the “A Waste of Time” podcast. “JAY did a record going at ‘Pac, but just as it was about to come out, son died…We performed it, though. We performed it once. You have to understand. The chip on JAY’s shoulder is so crazy, it’s just like he had to perform it.”

Although JAY-Z never got around to resolving the tensions between him and Tupac, Nas managed to meet up with Tupac backstage at the 1996 MTV Awards to realize that their feud was a result of a misunderstanding

“It was necessary for us to address the situation … We had to step to our business,” he said. “We had a great convo … He thought I was dissing him on the song “The Message.”

Bryson Tiller releases new single “Always Forever”

Bryson Tiller is back, after the release of his single “Inhale”. He returned with “Always Forever,” which witnessed productions from J-Louis, Teddy Walton, and CAMEone. In the song, Tiller can be seen singing a song about a girl who is not reciprocating his feelings for her:

“Yeah, you know I tried to stop, yeah, you know I tried, I tried to give you a little less of my time, startin’ to feel like I’m never in my right mind, in my right mind, is it the right time, babe?/

See you in the nighttime, babe, it’s nighttime, I wish you had feelings like mine, baby, feels like I’m still just a homie, actin’ like you don’t want me, yeah, no, oh, oh, shawty just don’t do it for me, you do it for me…/”

Three years ago, Bryson Tiller released his sophomore LP True To Self, wherein 19 tracks were featured with production from the likes of Boi-1da, Frank Dukes, !llmind, Keyz, T-Minus, and Wondagurl. With that album, Tiller enjoyed his first number one album on the Billboard 200, as 107,000 album equivalent units were sold during its first week of release. In 2015, his iconic debut album, T R A P S O U L, was released.

Bryson Tiller has been in the news for several reasons, such as attaining his high school diploma and writing a heartwarming letter to his late grandmother.

“Today, I realized I lost the most important woman in my life… I lost my mother at a very young age so I couldn’t really process what was happening. Today is the first time I carefully read the letter you wrote to me 4 years ago and I tried my hardest not to get tears on it or let it blow away in the wind.”

Fans can press play on “Always Forever” below.

Another white professor admits to pretending to be Black

Another white professor admits to pretending to be Black

After confessions by a college professor as well as an activist of Black Lives Matter activist, one more white person confessed that they have been pretending to be Black. CV Vitolo-Haddad — who uses nonbinary pronouns — stated that they are resigning from the University of Wisconsin-Madison on Medium, and they confessed about lying about their race.

“I am so deeply sorry for the ways you are hurting right now because of me,” they wrote in an essay titled, “A First Step.” “You have expressed confusion, shock, betrayal, anger, and mistrust. All of those things are a consequence of how I have navigated our relationships and the spaces we share.”

“I have let guesses about my ancestry become answers I wanted but couldn’t prove,” Vitolo-Haddad continued. “I have let people make assumptions when I should have corrected them.”

In another essay, they clarified that they are actually Italian, though they have been pretending to be Black and Cuban.

“It was my choice and error to identify any differently,” they wrote. “… When asked if I identify as Black, my answer should have always been ‘No.’ There were three separate instances I said otherwise.”

“I should have never entered Black organizing spaces,” the essay continued. “They are not my place. Once realizing this, it wasn’t sufficient to just leave; I should have explained that directly to the people who invited me and clarified my identity.”

The reports revealed that a job offer was presented by California State University, Fresno, which has been rescinded later. Later, a statement issued by the University of Wisconsin-Madison confirmed Vitolo-Haddad’s resignation as co-president of the university’s Teaching Assistants’ Association (TAA).

“We condemn CV Vitolo-Haddad’s appropriation of Black and Brown identities in no uncertain terms,” the TAA Executive Board and Racial Justice Committee of UW-Madison said in a statement. “They have resigned as co-president, and we have removed their access to our website, social media, and all other internal accounts.”

“We cannot speak for CV, but we as TAA leaders are profoundly sorry for the harm they have caused members of the Madison community by 1) claiming Black and Brown identities, 2) using those identities to silence and alienate activists in organizing spaces, and 3) manipulating and gaslighting Black and Brown community members who tried holding them accountable.”

Lil Wayne’s original version of ‘Tha Carter V’ will release this Friday

Lil Wayne’s original version of ‘Tha Carter V’ will release this Friday

Early birthday celebrations of Lil Wayne kicked off as exciting news emerged. It was on Monday (Sept. 21) that Mack Maine, the president of Young Money Entertainment and a frequent collaborator, practically announced two gifts – for Weezy’s garage and one for his fans.

The video was shared on Young Money’s Instagram, wherein Maine chose to announce that the original version of Wayne’s 2018 LP Tha Carter V will be released on Friday (Sept. 25). This news was announced as the rapper was driving the other present aimed at Wayne — an amethyst McLaren.

“I heard y’all always wanted that OG CV, ya heard?” Maine said while driving the flashy new car and playing what appeared to be an unreleased Wayne song. “I’m bumping that [CV] right there and I’m gon’ make sure y’all can bump it, too. Carter V Deluxe — OG Carter V — baby. Happy birthday, Tunechi! The GOAT!”

Then, Maine pulled up to Weezy, who maintained a smile while taking a video of his new car.

“Y’all saw that smile? That’s what I did it for,” Maine said. “That smile was priceless. Just to see my little brother smile like that, I feel like I did my job.”

Initially, Tha Carter V was supposed to release in 2014. But a revised version of the album was released four years later, due to a long feud with Birdman as well as a contractual dispute with Cash Money Records. Later, some tracks from the original version of the album were leaked, which include “Just Chill” with Justin Bieber and “Mute” featuring Big Sean. There is no clarity regarding which tracks- the ones that were leaked or never heard- will be released in the upcoming version.

That’s not all! Recently, Wayne also teased his fans with the series’ next installment. In an appearance on ESPN, the rapper stated that “Carter VI [is] coming soon,” but not before another sequel — No Ceilings 3.

“I got No Ceilings coming first,” he explained. “No Ceilings 3.”

These two projects come after Wayne’s Funeral album released this year.

Loon and Diddy Reunite After Former’s prison release

Loon and Diddy Reunite After Former’s prison release

Loon and Diddy Reunite After Former’s prison release

After his prison release, the rapper who was previously known as Loon reunited with Diddy.

It was on Sunday (Sept. 20), that the former Bad Boy signee posted pictures of the duo smiling, hugging, and talking to each other, as they got together at Diddy’s home in Los Angeles, California. “Everything is not what it seems,” he captioned the photo. “After all that we’ve been through, the love cannot be denied. We’ve traveled the world together, made millions together, and at times we may not have always agreed, but by Allah, if I hadn’t experienced the things that we went through, I wouldn’t have become the man that I am today!”

The duo first partnered up for Diddy’s “I Need A Girl” as well as its sequel, before Loon released his debut album in 2003 on Bad Boy Records. Back in 2008, Loon decided to quit being a part of the music industry, converted to the religion of Islam and became Amir Junaid Muhadith.

In the year 2011, Loon was charged with conspiracy of distributing more than one kilogram of heroin and he received a 14-year sentence. In 2012, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to distribute and possession with intent to distribute one kilogram or more of heroin. After serving 9 years of his prison sentence, he was released early, as US District Judge Terrence Boyle pointed out that the Coronavirus pandemic is an “extraordinary and compelling” reason, particularly because of his previous health issues. Moreover, Boyle deduced that Loon was not a societal threat.

After the news emerged about his release, Diddy took to social media to write “God is great. Welcome home. Get at me king. Love.”

Later, Loon spoke to “The Breakfast Club” and revealed that it would be “good” to chat with Diddy although he no longer intends on making music. “It would be a whole new space for us,” he said at the time. Speaking about his separation from Bad Boy Records, Loon explained that it was merely “business,” and that his relationship with Diddy did not deteriorate.
