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.
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.
Things were definitely sugar & spice and all things nice for HGTV star Egypt Sherrod and her husband DJ Fadelf. The invitation only celebration was held at an intimate event space in the West Midtown district of Atlanta. The room was filled with beautiful images of the happy couple as well as a center wall saluting their new baby girl—Harper Skye. Tables were adorned with pink and green floral arrangements.Attendees also enjoyed southern cuisine provided by Chef Johnnie Winston. Egypt looked amazing wearing a fitted hot pink dress designed by former reality star and fashion designer Reco Chapple.
Some of Atlanta’s most prestigious attended the event, including actress, producer and director Terri J. Vaughn, former music executive and author Sheri Riley, Sister Circle host Rashan Ali, Praise 102.5 radio personalities Darlene McCoy, Willie Moore Jr., Greenleaf star Lamman Rucker, comedienne and actress Kiana Dancie, media maven Ebony Steele and many more!
The event was brought together so elegantly by none other than Jakeem Smith of Jay Productions Agency!

This year was beyond all expectations,” says Charlie Morgan, Senior Vice President/Market Manager WBLS/WLIB. “From the panel discussions to the music performances, star-studded gospel concert and vendor marketplace, Circle of Sisters was a success.

The day was filled with today’s hottest celebrities from the stage and screen – actors, performers and music artists. From TONY Award-Winning Cynthia Erivo to Power’sNaturi Naughton to R&B singer and Real Housewife of Atlanta’s Kenya Moore as well as renowned preacher, author, producer Devon Franklin and our favorite couple David and Tamela Mann — all gave the community ‘honest and real’ conversation.

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