A video seems to show Fetty Wap getting involved in an altercation with Raheem Thomas.

Following a shootout in Paterson, New Jersey, Sunday morning, Fetty Wap was robbed of his gold chain and cash. Raheem “Fuzz” Thomas, who’s had a long standing feud with the “Trap Queen” rapper, has been booked for aggravated assault and multiple gun possession charges in relation with the incident.

Monday, a TMZ video reportedly showing Fetty and his group in an altercation with Thomas’ crew surfaced. In the clip, Fuzz supposedly wears a bright red jacket and cap and a white shirt and pants. He brandishes a handgun that has everybody shook in the deli. The gossip website claims Fetty falls to the floor. The rapper had already had his chain snatched by then, sources say.

Apparently, the “My Way” emcee has been a regular at the deli for years and had never caused trouble before. Check out the video below.

Drake Breaks Hot 100 Records: Most Hits Among Solo Artists & Most Simultaneously Charted Songs

drake-performing-1476093359-article-0

 

As Drake‘s new album More Life blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 (dated April 8), the hip-hop superstar smashes records on the Billboard Hot 100.

Most notably, with all 22 tracks from the set, as well as two others, on the Hot 100 at once, Drake passes Lil Wayne for the most charted titles among soloists (154) in the Hot 100’s 58-year history, while breaking his own mark for the most simultaneously charted Hot 100 titles in a week (24).

Drake also rewrites his own record for the most Hot 100 debuts in a week, sending 21 songs, all from More Life, onto the list for the first time.

Drake’s ‘More Life’ Bows at No. 1 on Billboard 200 & Sets Streaming Record

First, Drake takes over as the soloist with the most Hot 100 appearances dating to the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958, inception. With 21 debuts, he ups his count to 154 visits, blowing past Lil Wayne (135), who had held the mark among solo artists since October 2012, when he passed Elvis Presley, 109 to 108; notably, Presley’s career predated the Hot 100’s origin by more than two years. Among all acts, only the cast of Fox’s Glee (a rotating troupe with certain members present throughout the TV show’s six-season run in 2009-15) boasts more: 207.

Here is an updated count of the acts with the most Hot 100 entries all-time:

207, Glee Cast
154, Drake
135, Lil Wayne
108, Elvis Presley
91, James Brown
87, Jay Z
82, Chris Brown
81, Kanye West
77, Nicki Minaj
75, Ray Charles

Drake’s coronation as the soloist with the most charted Hot 100 titles occurs a week after Nicki Minaj passed Aretha Franklin (76 to 73, as of last week) for the highest total among female soloists; Franklin had held that honor for nearly 40 years. (This week, Minaj adds her 77th Hot 100 entry, as Jason Derulo‘s “Swalla,” featuring Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign, debuts at No. 98.)

Of his 154 Hot 100 titles, Drake has charted 103 as a lead artist (or 67 percent of his total). Only the Glee Cast (207) and Presley (108) have notched more entries as leads, showing lead billing on all of their charted titles.

As for the single-week record for the most charted Hot 100 entries, Drake’s 24 on the new April 8-dated list passes his own mark of 20, which he logged on the Hot 100 dated May 21, 2016,  the week that his prior album Views debuted atop the Billboard 200.

Additionally, Drake’s 21 Hot 100 debuts on the April 8 chart are the most in a single week, topping the 16 songs, all from Views, that bowed on May 21, 2016.

And, one more historic total: With all 22 tracks from More Life on the new Hot 100, Drake breaks the record for the most simultaneously charted Hot 100 titles from a single album, lifting past the 18 each for Views (May 21, 2016) and The Weeknd‘s Starboy (Dec. 17, 2016); like Views, the latter set tied the record the week that it arrived atop the Billboard 200.

Here is a look at the record 24 songs that Drake places on the April 8-dated Hot 100:

No. 8, “Passionfruit” (debut)
No. 9, “Portland,” feat. Quavo and Travis Scott (debut)
No. 15, “Fake Love” (up from No. 31 in its 22nd week after reaching No. 8 in February)
No. 18, “Free Smoke” (debut)
No. 29, “Gyalchester” (debut)
No. 35, “Teenage Fever” (debut)
No. 36, “Sacrifices,” feat. 2 Chainz and Young Thug (debut)
No. 38, “Blem” (debut)
No. 40, “No Long Talk,” feat. Giggs (debut)

No. 84, “No Frauds,” Nicki Minaj, Drake & Lil Wayne (down from No. 14 in its second week)

Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ Tops Hot 100; Drake Debuts Two in Top 10

With “Passionfruit” and “Portland” debuting at Nos. 8 and 9 on the Hot 100, respectively, Drake is just the second artist to notch simultaneous top 10 debuts, following Ed Sheeran, whose “Shape of You” (the No. 1 song on the chart for a ninth week on the April 8 survey) and “Castle on the Hill” entered at Nos. 1 and 6, respectively, on Jan. 28. Drake’s two new Hot 100 top 10s up his count to 20 for his career as he becomes the 17th act to hit that milestone. (Madonna leads all acts with 38 top 10s.)

Streaming is the main driver for each of More Life‘s Hot 100-charted songs this week. As previously reported, the set drew a record 384.8 million streams for its songs in its first week (ending March 23), according to Nielsen Music, besting the 245.1 million song streams that Views‘ songs garnered in their first frame.

On the Billboard 200, More Life vaults in at No. 1 with 505,000 equivalent album units in its opening week.

The Hot 100, Billboard 200 and all Billboard charts will update tomorrow (March 28) on Billboard.com.

The long-awaited mixtape from the Based God might finally see the light of day.

Despite Lil B’s notoriety for dropping an unfathomable volume of music, his Black Ken mixtape has never seen the light of day despite first getting artwork in 2010. He sent his Based God followers into a frenzy at the end of 2016 when he announced the Black Ken would finally be dropping. Now we have a more concrete idea of when “soon” really is.

In a tweet sent out Sunday morning, Lil B confirmed the album was still in the works and “should be ready next moth or 2.” He also calls it a “masterpiece for the world” and promises more artwork to go along with it.

Lil B black Ken mixtape should be ready next month or 2. will be a masterpiece for the world and more rare Lil B art coming be ready – Lil B

 

Lil B has released one song from the mixtape already, “My House” produced by Metro Boomin. He’s previously dedicated the album to a slew of people in the hip hop industry, including Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Charles Hamilton, Iggy Azalea and Vince Staples.

Snoop Dogg to Induct Tupac Shakur Into Rock Hall

Snoop Dogg will induct his late friend Tupac Shakur into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the April 7th ceremony in Brooklyn, Rolling Stone has confirmed.

The two rappers collaborated on All Eyez on Me‘s “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,” and Snoop Dogg has often taken credit for bringing Shakur to Death Row.

News of Snoop Dogg’s involvement first surfaced Sunday in a TMZ report that stated the rapper and potentially Dr. Dre, who was enshrined in the Rock Hall with N.W.A in 2016, would participate in a three-song musical tribute to Shakur that included the hit single “California Love.”

However, Rolling Stone has learned that the final lineup for the all-star Shakur tribute has not been cemented.

In a 2015 interview with Michael Rappaport, Snoop Dogg reminisced about meeting Shakur for the first time at a wrap party for the film Poetic Justice, which starred Shakur and Janet Jackson. The two rappers were aware of each other’s music but had never met; however, they soon bonded during a smoking session. Eventually, Shakur aligned with Snoop and Dr. Dre on Death Row Records.

“‘Pac brought a spirit to the studio that was different than anybody we ever worked with,” Snoop said of the rapper in another interview. “He had a spirit – like this nigga could be in three different rooms at one time makin’ music. He would never listen to it.”

The 2017 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame also includes Pearl Jam, Yes, Joan Baez, Journey and Electric Light Orchestra. The ceremony takes place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on April 7th.
