The single was produced by PGF and the video was directed by Nick Margetic. According to B Free, “Sometimes collaborations can feel awkward or forced, but with Diggy it was natural from the second I landed.”

Issa Rae Engaged to Longtime Boyfriend Louis Diame

HBO's Official Golden Globe Awards After Party - Arrivals

Issa Rae is engaged!

The 34-year-old actress is set to marry longtime boyfriend Louis Diame.

via People:

Rae’s Insecure costars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji confirmed the news while walking the red carpet at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards over the weekend.

“We’re very excited for her,” Orji told Entertainment Tonight ,with Ellis adding, “We all found out in different ways because we’re all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways.”

Orji said she couldn’t be more excited for her on-screen best friend.

“The reaction was all the same, like, ‘You out here in these streets getting married, boo!?’ That was the reaction,” she said.

Rae also attended the NAACP Image Awards, but she did not comment on her current relationship status. Her rep is not commenting.

And during her appearance on The View on Monday, she played coy when asked about her ring, saying, “I have a lot of rings on my fingers.”

Rumors of her engagement first began to swirl after she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her recent Essence magazine cover.

Rae and Diame have largely kept their relationship out of the spotlight, though the businessman has accompanied the actress on several red carpets over the years.

Rae has said that she prefers to keep her personal life private.

“I get so much feedback about everything,” she told Marie Claire last year. “The one thing I don’t need feedback on is who I’m sleeping with.”

While speaking with Vogue, Rae expressed a similar sentiment, saying she isn’t interested in hearing fans “input” about her love life.

“I don’t want any input,” she said. “As a writer, you put everything on the table. I’ll take input on kids if I’m going to have kids. How do I not kill the kids? Work? Give me the input. Any other aspect of my life? Give me the input. But who I’m f*cking? No, I don’t need input. I’m good.”

Congrats Issa!

Wendy Williams and Husband Kevin Hunter Are Reportedly Considering Separation

Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter are said to be “laying the groundwork for separation” after 22 years of marriage amid this latest round of infidelity, love child, and relapse rumors.

The daytime chat show queen has been married to Hunter since November 1997, a union dogged by rumors of Hunter’s infidelity in recent years.

Now sources say Williams and Hunter are exploring what a separation would look like, even though he remains her long-time manager. They are both partners in Wendy Williams Productions, the company that produces her popular daytime show.

A source told us: “There is a discussion about what happens now — everyone is asking, ‘How can they possibly stay together?’ Wendy still loves Kevin, but her health is at stake.

“They are so tangled up together in business, so they are carefully looking at what a separation could entail. It will be difficult.”

Williams and Hunter own a multi-million-dollar home in Livingston, NJ, and are the parents of 18-year-old son Kevin Jr.

Earlier this month, Williams finally admitted she is battling an addiction to alcohol and drugs — and confirmed that she currently is living in a sober facility in Queens.

We reported how it was Hunter’s decision to send his wife there — much to the concern of others close to her. But she has been allowed out to film her show on weekdays. Next week she’ll be off the air on a hiatus planned before her life spiraled into this new scandal.

“Long week,” Williams said at the beginning of her daily Hot Topics segment on Friday, as she dropped a throat lozenge into her mug.

Hopefully this leads to Wendy Williams being able to finally be free of the drama and get back focus on her life and goals.

Nipsey Hussle’s death was felt deeply in Crenshaw, the neighborhood where he grew up and maintained a regular presence after becoming a Grammy-nominated artist. His fans said he offered hope, advocated self-improvement and financially invested in the community, which has long struggled with violent crime. He opened a co-working space dedicated to increasing diversity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and planned to meet Monday with police officials to discuss ways to prevent gang violence.

His debut studio album, “Victory Lap,” was nominated for best rap album at the Grammys last year and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard chart. He had two children, Kross and Emani.

Rapper 21 Savage’ Arrested by US Immigration Force

Atlanta rapper 21 Savage has been arrested as of Sunday by immigration officials who say he is illegally present in the United States.

The rapper, whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, came to the US in July 2005 aged 12 and failed to leave when his visa expired a year later, officials said.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman said he is being held for removal proceedings.

A CNN reporter quoted an ICE spokesman as saying: “His whole public persona is false”.

“Mr. Abraham-Joseph is presently in ICE custody in Georgia and has been placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts,” ICE said in a statement. “ICE will now await the outcome of his case before a federal immigration judge to determine future actions.”
An attorney for Abraham-Joseph said his representatives were working to secure his release.
This is a developing story.

‘Love and Hip Hop’ Star Yandy Smith Maced While Protesting Jail Conditions in Brooklyn [VIDEO]

‘Love and Hip Hop’ star Yandy Smith got maced Sunday afternoon while protesting jail conditions.

The reality star was among the crowd protesting outside the Metropolitan Detention Center, a federal facility in Brooklyn, when the macing happened. Due to an electrical fire, the Metropolitan Detention Center has been without heat and electricity since January 28th.

via Madame Noire:

During the protest, which was broadcasted live on her Instagram account, she would correspond with the inmates by telling them to bang on their windows as she asked questions. When she asked if they had not received their blankets, the banging was heard loud and clear. When she asked if the heat had not been cut on, they banged, which let us know they were still freezing.

Smith, who was visibly emotional, was outraged at reports from the New York City Mayor’s Office that the inmates were sent blankets and hand-warmers while temperatures were below freezing. The inmates confirmed that they had not received anything. The MDC has been without heat and electricity for about a week, putting inmates are risk for serious health issues. The New York Times noted that inmates with sleep apnea cannot use their sleep machines because there is no electricity, putting them at risk for a stroke. Without electricity, the inmates can’t call their loved ones nor can they request refills for their medication. They also can’t use their toilets and there’s no hot water. Visiting hours have also been canceled. This jail houses over 1,600 men.

This matter hits close to home for Smith, whose husband Mendeecees Harris is currently incarcerated on drug related charges. Smith was also hurt during the protest according to a video that was posted by her close friend.
