Sometimes Hip Hop can move at a pace too frantic for even the most devoted fan to keep up with. Albums and mixtapes are released at breakneck speed, careers are made and broken with the swipe of a pen, and somewhere in between all the madness actual music (the quality of which vacillates between excellent and god awful) is being made. Twitter provides a nice summary of everything 140 characters at a time. And if you’re the type that would rather not be bothered with stepping into the Twitterverse to catch up on the latest in Hip Hop, we’ve filtered through the top rapper’s tweets and consolidated all the week’s events into one convenient feed.
This week, OutKast performs in their hometown of Atlanta and J. Cole’s debut album turns three.
Amber Rose Calls Wiz Khalifa A Cheater
Please stop with the fake stories. I would never ever ever cheat on my husband in a million years I think u guys know this…..
— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) September 25, 2014
Unfortunately my now ex husband can’t say the same….
— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) September 25, 2014
The break-up between Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose caught us all by surprise. What we weren’t given was a reason for the divorce, until now. While defending herself against rumors of infidelity, Amber calls out Wiz for cheating during their marriage. Per TMZ, Amber claims Wiz has been cheating on her for months during his “Under The Influence” tour this past summer. On top of the divorce, she is asking for full custody of their one-and-a-half year-old son Sebastian.
Happy 32nd Birthday, Lil Wayne
Hold up hold up hold up…. Bday Boy!!
— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) September 27, 2014
— Christina Milian (@ChristinaMilian) September 25, 2014
A big happy birthday to Lil Tunechi himself as he turns 32 on September 27. Lil Wayne, founder of Young Money, has had a quite a career, and it is not ending soon. While still on the road for the “Drake Vs Lil Wayne” tour, Weezy manages to make a pit stop to celebrate his day of birth at Lure nightclub in Hollywood on September 25. This was apparently a surprise party thrown by his rumored girlfriend Christina Milian, whose own birthday is just one day prior (September 26). She posted a photo of a skateboard-shaped cake with the words “Happy Birthday Tunechi.”
OutKast Performs In Atlanta
— Big Boi (@BigBoi) September 28, 2014
It’s only fitting for a group who formed in Atlanta and are celebrating 20 years of music to go back to the ATL and perform for the city that loves them. OutKast has a weekend-long set of shows dubbed #ATLast weekend. Big Boi has been sharing pictures from the show and this particular picture was taken on the second night. The duo didn’t stay on the stage along as they were joined by Goodie Mobb’s Bigg Gipp and Sleepy Brown for their individual features.
J. Cole’s Debut Album Turns Three
Can’t believe it’s been three years today since we released Sideline Story, truly been a ride and nothing but blessings #Dreamville
— Ibrahim H. (@KingOfQueenz) September 27, 2014
Since J. Cole doesn’t tweet much, we looked at his right-hand man Ibrahim “IB” Hamad’s Twitter account to get a nice little story about J. Cole’s debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story. On September 27, Cole’s first album turned three. Ibrahim talked about the label predicting only 60,000 in sales on the first week. When the numbers came out, it sold 115,000 in the first day and 220,000 in the first week. Hard work always pays off.
Big Sean’s “IDFWU” Single Is Always Relevant
#IDFWU… So relevant right now
— Big Sean (@BigSean) September 25, 2014
It was pretty clear that Big Sean made “I Don’t Fuck With You” with one target in mind: his ex fiancee Naya Rivera. Here’s a quick little back story on why he may be upset with the actress. Once upon a time, they were engaged and later, they broke up. It looks like she kept the wedding date and dress and ended up marrying someone else months after she broke off her engagement to the G.O.O.D. Music rapper. On top of being an angry “diss” track, the hook is definitely catchy, making it relevant for almost every occasion.
Rick Ross Shares Picture Of Meek Mill From Jail
— Hood Billionaire (@rickyrozay) September 27, 2014
Out of sight, out of mind. The phrase doesn’t apply in this case. While Meek Mill is still serving time, his Maybach Music Group family still has his back. Rick Ross shared a picture of the Philadelphia native with the caption, “almost at the door,” hinting that he may be released soon. Grey is a dull color for a sweatsuit but besides the fashion, Meek looks to be in good spirits. Check out the full story, here.
Soulja Boy Says K. Michelle Smells
K Michelle pussy smell like shit
— Soulja Boy (@souljaboy) September 23, 2014
Twitter feud of the week: Soulja Boy and K. Michelle have no shame in publicizing their distaste for one another. K. Michelle initiated the quarrel, directly calling Soulja Boy out on Power 105’s The Breakfast Club. While we commend him for standing up for himself, his comeback is a great reflection of his young age. Interestingly enough, the two have never met in real life. That should be a fun run-in.
Q-Tip Roots Derek Jeter On In Final Home Game
Incredible!!!!!!!! #2 the captain!!! Goes out like a champ!!!
— QTip (@QtipTheAbstract) September 26, 2014
All eyes were on Derek Jeter when he played his final game at Yankee Stadium on Friday (September 26). Q-Tip and the rest of the world were rooting for the shortstop either from the stands or from their living rooms. Needless to say, Jeter played one hell of a game and went out the right way with many of his celebrity friends in the crowd, including Jay Z. Not sure if Q-Tip was also in the stands but the cheering remains the same regardless.
Iggy Azalea Responds To Rah Digga’s Claim She’s Not Hip Hop
I honestly don’t really mind if I’m described as rap or pop. My passion is purely making music and entertaining.
— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) September 24, 2014
In a recent interview with Thisis50 Radio, New Jersey rapper Rah Digga calls out Iggy Azalea claiming she an artist she could just not get into. She stated after listening to her album, she is everything but Hip Hop. Iggy responded via Twitter claiming she does not mind what genre of music people perceive her as, as long as she is making the music she loves. No one can be mad at that.
