Word on the curb is West Coast legenary rapper, Snoop Dogg feels he’s at the same level as East Coast rapper, Jay Z when it comes to a verses battle. He suggested he and Jigga get together and toss their hits back and forth for fans live on Instagram. Jay Z hasn’t responded (of course he hasn’t) but I’m happy Snoop is that confident to say this out loud! That takes a lot of chutzpah and Snoop does have plenty of it! (SOURCE)
The music industry lost a legend last week and one of the most notable faces (and names) in the game is expressing his grief; confessing his deep loss for more than a mentor but a father-figure.
Sean “Diddy” Combs finally broke his silence about the untimely death of music giant, Andre Harrell who passed away at the age of 59 due to heart failure.
He took to his social media platforms to share his grief and sadness saying Harrell was more than a mentor but a father (Diddy lost his real father at the age of 2) . Diddy got his start in the music business by Andre Harrell who started Uptown Records and jumpstarted may careers of talented and award-winning artists like Mary J Blige, Jodeci, the late Heavy D and more!

Finally, the tragic and untimely death of unarmed black man, Ahmaud Arbery (age 25), who was gunned down in broad daylight while jogging in a Brunswick, Georgia neighborhood by father and son, Gregory and Travis McMichael, has stirred up many familiar emotions within the black community.
We’re still trying to heal for the other young lives (black and unarmed) lost at the hands of white men; some police officers (Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Freddy Gray, Trayvon Martin)
The two men who are accused of killing Arbery in February have been arrested and denied bail.
The family and legal team of Ahmaud are urging the state and federal justice leaders to sentence all involved with life or death.
Arbery’s mother, Wanda Cooper-Jones told TMZ that the decision to want them to die is because “Coming from my point of view, my son died, so they should die as well.” (SOURCE)
