This week in hip-hop we experienced quite the roller coaster with new music releases, female rap drama, expected Tekashi 6ix9ine headlines, as well as the culture saying goodbyes to the late Marvel creator Stan Lee and the beloved ex-wife of Diddy, Kim Porter.
In Thursday’s breaking news, mother, model, and steady figure in the hip hop community Kim Porter passed away in her Toluca Lake home. While details are still surfacing on what caused the sudden death, the late 47-year old has had an outcry of condolences and prayers sent to her family and children Quincy Brown, Christian Combs, D’Lila and Jessie Combs, as well as ex-husband Sean Diddy Combs. We are continuing to send our deepest condolences to the Combs family.
While 6ix9ine continues to make some surprising, yet not so surprising headlines, the New York rapper has canceled his entire working staff. Taking to his social media to let everyone know that he let go of everyone from management to agents, he also canceled his upcoming tour and appearances.
Bryhana also spills the tea and kool-aid when it comes to Iggy Azalea and Bhad Bhabie’s Cardi B Party drama, disagrees with rapper Remy Ma saying she doesn’t believe Drake is a legend and she also let’s us know her favorite Too $hort lyric.
