HipHopDX – This week in Hip Hop, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony got into an increasingly bizarre beef with Migos and 21 Savage. Also, Master P referred to Kodak Black as the police for flexing guns and money on social media. Lastly, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s lawyer worked on securing a $1.5 million bail package for his client.
Bone Thugs-n-Harmony & Migos Feud
Things got weirder when Bizzy Bone came at Migos and 21 on Instagram Live and threatened them with a musket.
“You think I’m playin’ with you, don’t you?” he said in the video. “I’ll blow your muthafuckin’ head off. Let me tell you something. Let me tell you something. Who the fuck you think you talkin’ to? You ain’t the only nigga with guns.”
To make things even weirder, Bizzy’s rant was interrupted by cops knocking on his door.

Master P Calls Kodak Black “The Police”
View this post on Instagram
2019 I’m investing my energy, time, and money into movies because movies can’t talk back. If you want to be successful it’s ok to say you don’t know everything. It’s ok to reach out to people who have been there before you. Put your trust and faith in God. Just remember the same people you tried to play games with on the way up you might need on the way down. I realized I can’t change or save people because you have to want to do that yourself. Don’t be afraid to grow up. Most importantly never burn relationships with people that kept it 100 with you.
Kodak Black and Master P’s mentor-mentee relationship has deteriorated.
During an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Kodak claimed the No Limit boss was asking him for money to be his mentor. P responded by calling out the controversial rapper for “telling on himself” by toting guns and money on social media.
“A lot of these artists, when you try to help them, they say something crazy,” the Hip Hop mogul said. “The only thing I was trying to do with the little boy was help him. Everything you doing on social media is telling on yourself.
“You’re the police because you’re telling on yourself. You’re putting guns. You’re putting money up. You got 150 Gs, but you can’t give 10 Gs back to the community or school you went to.”

#DXCLUSIVES: Andreao Heard, Stro Elliot & Everyone We Lost In 2018
Surviving The Bad Boy Curse: “Crush On You” Producer Andreao Heard Talks Career & New Label
Andreao Heard produced Lil Kim’s 1997 hit single “Crush On You” and spoke with HipHopDX’s Riley Wallace about how it came to be. He also detailed how he ended up working with Michael Jackson after leaving Bad Boy Records, thus avoiding the “Bad Boy Curse.”
“I don’t think he anticipated that I was going to be able to achieve that once I left him,” Heard said of Diddy. “I was probably the only one that didn’t suffer from the Bad Boy curse … they all tried it, but I was probably the only one that came out of there.”
