Just when you thought Amber Rose was prepared to behave amiably towards her ex-beau Kanye West, she drops a bombshell late night at a Los Angeles nightclub. After an undisclosed number of songs from the rapper/producer’s extensive catalogue were played, Amber Rose took to the mic to request the DJ, “Stop playing n*ggas I used to f*ck."
Brooklyn born emcee Joey Bada$$ took to Instagram to announce the First Annual “Steez Day Festival.” The show will take place on July 7, 2015 on Central Park’s historic SummerStage in Manhattan, New York.
In all of human culture there is no event more tragic than the funeral of a loved one. It is a time where family and friends gather to pay respect to the memory of the deceased and bond together over shared loss and grief. Unfortunately, funerals are also a time where long-held feuds between family members occasionally boil over and overshadow the somber event. This is what happened this past Saturday, March 29th at a funeral held in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Ever since mixtapes became a prominent fixture in hip-hop in the late-90s, artists and labels have tried various methods to make the release of albums feel more momentous. There have been special editions with extra songs, collector editions and even multiple covers like with Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

However, it appears that Young Money’s First Lady will have no such luck.
