Westside Gunn Argues With Producer On Twitter

Westside Gunn found himself engaged in a Twitter dispute with a producer over a payment disagreement. The exchange started with a tweet from Ewonee, a beatmaker. He inquired about where to send his invoice for a song by Griselda artist Estee Nack. The beatmaker’s tweet came in response to a post claiming that Westside Gunn pays his producers well. Gunn took offense to Ewonee’s tweet. The rapper accused him of burning bridges by publicly calling him out and saying that Estee Nack had given the impression that the beat had been cleared.

Furthermore, Gunn expressed his disappointment. He went on to highlight his support for artists and emphasize the importance of communication. He mentioned his preference for working only with his team. This is due to what he perceived as a lack of vision and disrespect from others. Gunn concluded by stating that he would no longer accept beats unless he personally reached out to the producers. That is an unfortunate development for other beatmakers who may have wished to work with Westside Gunn.

Westside Gunn Had Time Today

Unfortunately for both Westside Gunn and Ewonee, that was not the end of the discussion. Ewonee responded to Gunn’s tweet. He stated that he was unaware his beat was used on Estee Nack’s album and that he didn’t receive credit. Gunn then assured him that he would remove the song from the project. He further advised him to privately address any future complaints about his work. In a separate tweet, Ewonee emphasized the need to recognize those who speak up and revealed that this was not the first time he had experienced issues regarding credit.

Gunn later reflected on the situation, expressing his frustration at always being portrayed as the “bad guy” despite his efforts to take care of his family, spread art and love, and positively influence others. He saw the backlash as a consequence of his success and acknowledged reaching a new level in his career, expressing gratitude to God. The Twitter spat highlighted a payment dispute between Westside Gunn and a producer, but it is hardly an isolated incident. Many producers complain of the same treatment. However, it does bring up the question of professionalism. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!

Juvenile Feels Slighted By His Exclusion From Essence Festival

Juvenile is disappointed with Essence Festival. They have excluded him from the lineup commemorating the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop in New Orleans, his hometown. The festival shared flyers representing the performers for each day. Juvenile noticed his absence from the “The South Got Something To Say” set curated by Jermaine Dupri. Other artists like Big Boi, Gucci Mane, Lil Jon, Ludacris, and T.I. were listed. However, Juvenile questioned how Essence Fest could overlook his significant contributions to the city’s hip-hop scene.

When a fan pointed out that “The South Has Something To Say” featured many Atlanta rappers, Juvenile expressed his disappointment. He then stated that the festival organizers had failed to understand the significance of his omission. In response, Juvenile took to promoting another festival called “Donna Fest.” There, he and Mannie Fresh will be performing. He emphasized his deep connection to the city and its culture. He also highlighted the presence of a live band, including Rebirth, and an array of diverse food vendors. Juvenile urged his followers to attend, emphasizing the affordable ticket price of $25.

Juvenile is a legendary figure in New Orleans rap. The rapper rose to fame during his time with Cash Money Records in the ’90s. He was involved with the Hot Boys alongside Lil Wayne, Turk, and B.G. He had a number of hugely successful hit songs. Included among those are “Back That Azz Up,” “Set It Off,” and “Slow Motion.” With such instantly recognizable songs, he has clearly made a lasting impact on the hip-hop genre.

During an interview at the 2023 Lovers and Friends Festival, Mannie Fresh expressed his belief that Juvenile’s “Back That Azz Up” is the greatest love song ever. He made this declaration while emphasizing the decline of dance music and fun in contemporary artists’ focus on toughness and gangsterism. Mannie Fresh expressed his love for seeing people smile and have a good time, advocating for the importance of embracing joy and fun in music. While calling “Back That Azz Up” the greatest love song ever is debatable, it is certainly a classic. What do you think of Juvenile’s exclusion from Essence Fest? Let us know in the comments!

Jack Harlow “F***in Sick” About Canceling Vegas Show

Jack Harlow has said he feels sick after having to cancel a concert. He expressed his disappointment on Twitter after announcing the cancellation of his Las Vegas show due to an airline issue. The Louisville rapper-turned-actor shared that his plane, which was grounded in Kentucky, was unable to take off. This led to the unfortunate cancellation of the scheduled performance.

In his statement, Harlow conveyed his frustration and regret. The rapper mentioned that it was the first time in his career that he had to miss his own show. Despite efforts to find alternative flights or transportation, the circumstances were beyond his control. He apologized to his fans, expressing his sadness at not being able to deliver the anticipated performance and fulfill their song requests. Jack Harlow, of course, assured that refunds would be provided. Then, he pledged to make it up to every single person who had planned to attend the show.

Harlow “Can’t Jump” On a Flight

In other news, Jack Harlow has been quite active on the acting front recently. Most notably, he appeared in a major role in Hulu’s White Men Can’t Jump. Social media was buzzing with concerns ever since the announcement of the rapper taking on the role originated by Woody Harrelson. People raised doubts about the suitability of the Kentucky native making his acting debut in such an iconic role. However, the release of the initial trailers provided some relief. Now that the film is available on Hulu, fans can judge Harlow’s acting skills for themselves. The new White Men Can’t Jump follows the familiar story of two unlikely friends, one black and one white, bonding over basketball.

In addition to the unexpected appearances by all-star athletes, many viewers seemed at least satisfied by Jack Harlow’s performance. One surprised tweet exclaimed, “Why is Jack Harlow actually acting omg.” Another user chimed in, “The new White Men Can’t Jump is funny asf I can’t lie. Thought the shit was gonna be corny as hell.” However, there are also several individuals who expressed serious dissatisfaction with the project after watching it. One particularly unimpressed viewer vented, “Just watched 30 minutes of the White Men Can’t Jump remake. Y’all are so lucky I don’t have powers because the movie is so bad that I would have destroyed the world.” Regardless, Jack Harlow managed to pull off something not many others could have in their first role.

GloRilla Reveals Which Zodiac Signs Are The Best In Bed

About a year ago, GloRilla emerged onto the music scene with her release of “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” produced by Hitkidd. The song gained immense popularity on TikTok, propelling it to reach No. 42 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It has since been certified gold by the RIAA and received a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Performance. Even iconic rapper Nas referenced GloRilla and her viral track in his own song, specifically mentioning her by name in the bonus track “Til My Last Breath” from his album King’s Disease III, where he raps about her and their connection. However, the success of “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” came with its share of drama. GloRilla faced legal issues with Hitkidd, who criticized her on Twitter, claiming that she and her team attempted to gain full ownership of the song. Despite the challenges, GloRilla’s life improved after the release, and now she expresses her criticism of those who believe in marriage, aligning with the lyrics of “F.N.F. (Let’s Go).”

In a tweet that has since been removed, GloRilla expressed her criticism towards those who still have faith in marriage. Although the tweet was deleted, The Shade Room managed to capture a screenshot of it. “So y’all believe in marriage in this generation?? I just couldn’t myself fw one n*gga for too long,” the rapper said. “N*ggas start n*gga-ing after da first 6 months & baby Ima start n*gga-ing right along with a n*gga.” While it presented an interesting perspective, it received backlash from some individuals. Many people who commented on The Shade Room’s post disagreed with GloRilla’s viewpoint. Now, the rapper is sharing her perspective on which zodiac signs are the best physical lovers.

GloRilla Wants To Know Who You Think Are The Best In Bed

In a recent tweet, GloRilla decided to reveal her picks for the best zodiac signs in bed. “I got da best head from a Libra,” the rapper revealed, “and da best [eggplant emoji] from a cancer… hby?” In the replies under the tweet, many fans revealed their personal opinions on the matter. Some agreed with GloRilla, while others gave completely different answers. Interestingly, as much as the rapper seems to be very forward on social media and in her music, she came off as far more shy when on live with Kai Cenat.

Although Kai Cenat is highly regarded as the Twitch king, it doesn’t mean he’s hesitant to make a move while live streaming. During his recent live stream with GloRilla, the two seemed to have made a connection. While on the stream, Kai asks GloRilla if she is in a relationship. She giggles and responds that she is not. Kai appears to be surprised by her answer, and she admits that he made her blush. This interaction is intriguing, considering GloRilla’s typically bold and tough rap persona. There is no information available on whether they exchanged contact information. What do you think of GloRilla’s latest tweet? Do you agree with her? Sound off in the comments below!

“Burna is carving out his own unique chamber. His new splash is something special,” he wrote. Fans in his replies were mostly in agreement with the take. “Very special. Burna actually has always been a unique artist all together [sic]. “He is not a regular artist,” one wrote. “His passion for music n the dedication n range of emotions that goes into it, his music is therapeutic, healing, inspiring n motivating.”

RZA is far from the first artist to sing Burna Boy’s praises either. Swizz Beatz recently claimed that he introduced Burna Boy to the United States. He made the claim during an appearance on Amazon Music’s Rotation Roundtables. “[I was the] first person to bring Burna Boy to the States,” he said. “Actually, he had a Ruff Ryders bandana on and I introduced him on the stage. When I was playing Fela Kuti, people thought I was being too African, and that’s how ignorant the energy was at that time. But I didn’t let that stop me from moving what I’m moving because it is what it is. It’s all educational. So we can’t be scared of the educational journey of something that sound different or feels different. So for me traveling the world, it’s a whole like — I can’t wait for people to listen to Ebo Taylor.”

RZA On Burna Boy’s New Track

Burna Boy released his major-label debut back in 2018 with his album, Outside. A year later, he won Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards. In 2023, Rolling Stone placed him on its list of the best 200 singers of all time.
