We got Soulja Boy in NYC Thursday, and he started bashing tons of rappers … with rapid-fire insults directed at Tyga, Famous Dex and KanyeWest. Hell, even Kanye’s buddy, Donald Trump, couldn’t escape Soulja’s wrath!
Soulja says Travis isn’t making a mistake by performing at the Super Bowl halftime show despite backlash from big names like Common… and it seems Travis can do no wrong in Soulja’s eyes, because he applauds TS for taking “Tyga’s bitch!”
As you know … Soulja and Tyga have been beefing all week over who had the bigger comeback in 2018, and the “Crank That” rapper is more than willing to pick a few more fights.
Watch … Soulja pisses all over Yeezys, disses Dex and trashes Tyga, all while promoting himself and taking credit for making music go digital.
Drake‘s keeping his friends close and his frenemy’s family even closer … based on who showed up to his New Year’s Eve bash.
As you know … Kanye West went onthe attack last weekend and issued a very public rebuke of Drake on NYE for following his wife on Instagram, but that didn’t stop Kim‘s sisters from having a good time at Drizzy’s champagne party.
Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott all attended The Mod Selection New Year’s Party Monday night at Delilah in L.A. — hosted by Drake — despite the bad blood currently between him and Ye.
It’s possible the rappers’ relationship’s on the mend … Drake unfollowed Kim on IG just hours before midnight on NYE, so perhaps that was enough to smooth things over and allow Kanye’s kin to hang out with Drake without backlash.
Kanye even tweeted on New Year’s Day “I love Drake 2019 we will all heal.”
Travis Scott is really feeling his Astroworld tour … because the “SICKO MODE” rapper is immortalizing his set design with an insane new piece of bling!
We’re told Travis dropped around $ 450,000 on this incredibly detailed chain and pendant. It’s pretty much the bling equivalent of his concert layout, complete with his mug in the middle of a Ferris wheel and the tracks of his roller coaster stage design.
These ain’t space rocks. Our sources say the pendant and chain feature 150 carats of VS diamonds and over 1,000 grams of gold!
Travis commissioned Eliantte to design and create the sick bling, and the celeb jeweler personally delivered it before Travis’ show at The Forum. That’s the kind of customer service $ 450k gets ya!
As you can see … the diamond and gold chain forms the tracks of the roller coaster Travis rides at his shows. The piece even has a diamond rocket ship, and it opens!
Safe to say Travis is gonna be the biggest baller at the Super Bowl!
Michael B. Jordan really doesn’t want to believe Travis Scott‘s joining Maroon 5 for the Super Bowl 53 Halftime Show … because he thinks it goes against what Trav should be standing for.
Much like Al Sharpton — who flat out calledScott a hypocrite when we talked to him — Jordan implies Travis is betraying the boycott against the NFL for how it’s treated Colin Kaepernick and its handling of the kneeling controversy.
MBJ says, “We’re still trying to stand behind something right now,” and suggests by taking the Super Bowl gig … the rapper’s setting the cause back.
The ‘Creed’ star’s still holding out hope it’s just a rumor, though … but as far as we know, it’s totally legit.
Al Sharpton is calling out Travis Scott for agreeing to perform at the Super Bowl … in fact, he’s calling him a hypocrite.
We got the Reverend Friday in a rainy NYC, and he couldn’t be stronger … he says Travis is betraying the NFL boycott by drawing people to the game by his presence with Maroon 5 during the half time show.
Sharpton feels strongly that people need to turn their backs on the NFL for what they did to Colin Kaepernick and others who expressed themselves by taking a knee to protest injustice.
His last line is rousing … “You can’t fight Jim Crow and then sit in the back of the bus.”
DC Young Fly says he’s down with Maroon 5 and Travis Scott performing at halftime of the Super Bowl … but he still feels the NFL made a huge mistake by passing over Atlanta rappers.
The ‘Wild ‘N Out’ star isn’t going full Jay-Z — trying to talk Travis out of performing — but he supports Colin Kaepernick and thinks the NFL is slapping ATL in the face by snubbing its hip-hop scene … and he warns a TON of people are gonna raise hell when the big game comes to town.
