Nicki Minaj Drops a Shade-Filled Remix to Drake and Meek Mill’s ‘Going Bad’ on Queen Radio

Nicki Minaj returned to Queen Radio on Saturday afternoon and dropped a couple of remixes.

Then, she dropped a fiery remix to Drake and Meek Mill’s “Going Bad,” this time taking some shots.

“When you lose the queen, niggas friendly, dawg. It was just ‘back to back’ like Wembley, dawg,” Nicki raps. The line is obviously a reference to Drake & Meek ending their beef years after Drake’s “Back to Back” diss track.

She took a few more jabs in the song which you can listen to below.

BOW WOW Arrested For Alleged Assault On Ex-GF

Listen to what was shared by me today on Starrdom100 Radio by clicking Here!

Bow Wow was arrested in Atlanta early Saturday morning for allegedly beating a woman … a woman who was also arrested for allegedly beating him.

ATL cops told TMZ … there was some sort of dispute between Bow Wow and the woman at 4:15 AM Saturday. When they arrived, the woman claimed Bow Wow assaulted her. He claimed it was the opposite.

Both Bow Wow and the woman sustained visible, minor injuries.

Police identified the woman as Leslie Holden. She is Bow Wow’s on-and-off GF, and goes by Kiyomi Leslie. She’s also on “Growing Up Hip Hop” with the rapper.

Cops couldn’t figure out which one was the true aggressor, so they arrested both and charged them with misdemeanor battery.

Bow Wow has since then been released.

Tiffany Haddish, Set To Star in Female-Driven Reboot of ‘Jump Street’

According to reports, Tiffany Haddish is in talks with Sony to star in a reboot of the Jump Street franchise.

The upcoming spin-off is said to feature an all-female leading cast.

via Complex:

2012’s 21 Jump Street, the first film in the recent iteration of the series, was a reimagining of the late ’80’s police procedural of the same name. The action-comedy starred Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as undercover cops posing as high school students looking to bust a drug ring. The film was widely praised, scoring over $200 million at the box office and receiving a sequel two years later. 22 Jump Street became even more successful than its predecessor, as it went on to earn $331 million worldwide.

The premise of the all-female reboot would set Haddish as an undercover cop, but posing as the mother of a child also entering a school. Sources point to Awkwafina as being high on the list of names considered for the role of the student. Awkwafina’s stellar performances in this year’s hit films Crazy Rich Asians and Ocean’s 8 proved her to be a highly talented actress, so it is no surprise if she is in talks for the role.

Haddish has demonstrated her power as a comedic force in film, as the 2017 hit Girls Trip amassed over $140 million worldwide. In addition, her performance alongside Kevin Hart in Night School would propel the film to achieving the highest opening for a comedy this year.

Go Tiffany! She Ready!

A Few Quotes from Panel Discussions

#BlackGirlMagic

Don’t take no for an answer. Believe in yourself and have your own personal value—that’s how you will last in this industry for a long time.” – EnVogue

“To have black girl magic, it’s really recognizing that magic that’s in yourself first.” – Naturi Naughton

“Don’t let the brown [skin], don’t let the dark eyes, don’t let the natural hair stop you.” – Bernice Holmes

State of Black America: How to Make Our Voices Heard in this Political Climate

“None of us would have existed had it not been the backbone of our black women. Black women stood up and brought us back every time. We have got to be involved. We have to be sensitive to where we are—where we are with our voting rights, where we are with health care, where we are with gender rights?”  – Al Sharpton

“When I first began, my main objective was to just be good at rapping … but as time goes by, you start to realize that people are actually listening to you and you have things you want to say outside of music.” – Remy Ma

“It’s not easy. There’s not a short-term solution to handle things. You have to get into the trenches, you have to raise your voice as loud as you can even if sometimes you don’t understand what you’re fighting.” – Ashley G. Sharpton

Dating, Marriage, Love & The Internet: How to Make it All Work

“There’s too much of a stigma put on how you meet a person. God may use online dating more than he may use the church to bring you the right person because people can hide in church … find the person, however God brings them to you.” DeVon Franklin

“The worst mistake you can make is to get married before you know yourself.” Charreah K. Jackson

“The most important thing [about online dating] is honesty. You have to be honest” Kenya Moore

Living in The Gospel

“Let’s stop talking about what God can do and walk in what you can do. We should come to the table with everything he’s given us and let’s challenge each other in the church, so that we can use our skills, our talents for God to multiply that through obedience.” Dr. Stacie NC Grant

“We have to forgive debts for our debts to be forgiven. That’s the only way.” Brian Courtney Wilson

“You have to have time for God” Maranda Curtis

Circle of Sisters (COS) is the largest expo for women of color in New York City with more than 40,000 attendees. Produced and hosted by WBLS-FM/WLIB – AM and Emmis Communications, COS hosts a variety of panel discussions, seminars, gospel concert in addition to nearly 300 vendors and small businesses selling unique items and services.

Stephen Curry Takes a Shot at Producing for Hollywood

Stephen Curry, 30, is stepping into a new playing field which consists of producing films!

Via Variety:

His focus is no longer divided now that his wife, Ayesha, is weeks away from delivering their third child and first son, Canon W. Jack Curry. “I actually thought the baby was going to be here yesterday,” he says, nervously patting the mobile phone inside the pocket of his UnderArmour sweatpants. “It was kind of a false alarm. But I’m on alert right now.”

Fatherhood isn’t the only matter far from the basketball court that’s getting more of Curry’s attention today. The afternoon will take him to offices he keeps in Oakland for another new feature of his postseason: development meetings. He announced in April that he was getting into the entertainment business by way of a wide-ranging dealbetween the production company he had formed, Unanimous Media, and Sony Pictures Entertainment. The All-Star guard sat down with Variety to talk at length about the details of his new venture, including several films already in development — just one part of an ambitious partnership that aims to extend as far as video games, virtual reality and consumer products. But films and TV are the focus of the deal, with concentrations in three core areas: faith, family and sports.

When Curry saw a few years ago what Lebron James and other athletes were starting to do in the entertainment space, he was intrigued. He turned to Jeron Smith, a former Nike brand manager and White House deputy director of digital strategy during the Obama administration, for guidance.

“As we talked about what he wanted to do with his brand and where he wanted to go, he landed on this North Star: Stephen wants to inspire as many people as possible,” says Smith. “There’s no more effective way to touch broad audiences and inspire as many people than with the sharing and dissemination of content globally.”
