Cardi B is debunking allegations that she physically and verbally abused a former security guard working at a medical clinic during her pregnancy. According to TMZ, Emani Ellis filed a lawsuit against the Bronx rapper on claims that she was assaulted, struck and spat on by Cardi B. Witnesses have already denied these allegations but Cardi put them to rest herself.
"Why don’t you guys post the part where the doctor office said that that’s not what happen ?and if I assaulted why she didn’t press charges ? Why would I put my hands on some1 twice my size by myself while I’m experiencing sharp pain 4 months pregnant ?" She wrote on Twitter.
The alleged assault occurred on Feb. 24th, 2018, before Cardi had announced her pregnancy. Ellis alleged that she was attacked by Cardi who also used racial slurs against her. This apparently went down at a medical clinic while Cardi was pregnant but witnesses have denied the validity of Ellis' statement as well. Sources say that Ellis attempted to record video or take photos of Cardi but the rapper attempted to stop her because she didn't want to get filmed at the doctor's office.
It didn't end there, though. Ellis reportedly refused and got hospital towards Cardi before things escalated. Fortunately, building staff intervened before things for physical which debunks Ellis' allegations.
Ellis filed a suit against Cardi B for assault, battery and infliction of emotional distress. She claims that Cardi "then used her celebrity status to get [Ellis] fired from her job as a security guard." However, this isn't true, according to a rep from the building, Cardi's doctor and the patient coordinator got Ellis fired because she invaded Cardi's privacy.

Pop Smoke’s Rival 22Gz Comments On His Death
Brooklyn rapper 22Gz never got along with Pop Smoke but, despite their beef, he sent his condolences to the late rapper's family.
Earning his keep in the Brooklyn rap scene, 22Gz is well-known for being close to Kodak Black. The drill rapper has also found himself in numerous feuds over the last couple of years, including a heated one with Pop Smoke. As you surely know by now, Pop Smoke was shot and killed in what appears to have been a targetted hit in the Hollywood Hills this week. Just a few days have passed since his murder but, already, so many people have spoken out about what Smoke meant to the New York drill community. Despite their differences, 22Gz ended up actually putting their beef to the side to send his condolences to the friends and family of the deceased rapper, taking to Twitter to do so.

"All beef aside, I feel sorry for boy," wrote 22Gz. "This type of stuff is the reason I move with who I move with and move the way we move. Becoming another casualty isn’t that plan for any of us. Sleep in peace to homie. May his family find peace in all of this madness. Idk about y’all. But I’m about growth and development. Not dissing black men who die from senseless violence. So please keep the negative comments to yourself please!"
Good on him for being the bigger man. While they may not have liked each other, 22Gz knows that the death of Pop Smoke is emblematic of an issue that is worsening every day.
Russell Westbrook Taunts Klay Thompson & Gets Back a Smug Smirk
Russell Westbrook had some harsh words for the Warriors bench.
Russell Westbrook has consistently been one of the scrappiest players in the entire NBA. He's never been afraid to dish out his fair share of trash talk and he continues to be one of the best players in the league, especially when it comes to racking up triple-doubles. Last night, Westbrook's Houston Rockets were dominating the Golden State Warriors which is a team Westbrook has some history with. The Rockets were blowing out the Warriors by 35 points with just six minutes to go and that's when Westbrook decided to take action.
As you can see in the clip below, Westbrook goes up to the Warriors bench and begins chastizing Andrew Wiggins and Klay Thompson. Wiggins simply smiles in Westbrook's direction while Thompson gives the Rockets superstar a smug smirk. Eventually, Westbrook was escorted away and kicked out of the match.
The Rockets got the last laugh in the end as they improved to 35-20 on the season and are fifth in the Western Conference. Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors are last in the entire league with an abysmal record of 12-44. Still, the Warriors have three championships in the last five years which is something Westbrook can't really say anything about considering he has zero.
We're sure the next time these two play, it will be filled with dramatics.
Trae Young Calls Out Jimmy Butler After 50-Point Performance
Atlanta Hawks' Trae Young waited months to get back at Jimmy Butler, and he seized the opportunity after his career-high 50 points.
Atlanta Hawks' All Star point guard Trae Young notched another milestone on Thursday night, as he dropped a career-high 50 points in a 129-124 victory over the Miami Heat. Young, who scored the final 10 points of the game, connected on 8 of 15 three-point attempts, 18 of 19 free throws, and 1 of 1 post-game trolls. Following the game, the second-year superstar called out fellow All Star Jimmy Butler, referencing an instagram post by Butler back in December.

The Young-Butler back-and-forth started when Young proclaimed "It's over!" late in the fourth quarter of a December matchup between the two teams. As it turns out, the game was not over, as the Hawks blew a six-point lead in the final minute and ultimately lost in overtime. At the time, Butler trolled Young on IG by posting, "This man @traeyoung is a teller of the future. he was right. game WAS over!"
Months after that exchange, Young finally got redemption. He tweeted the following shortly after Atlanta's W on Thursday night: "...and FYI @JimmyButler was right, I can see the future... I saw tonight happening awhile ago."
Young, 21, has improved his game in every aspect this season, averaging 30.1 points to go along with 9.2 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Young became the fourth-youngest player to ever score 50 points in a game, joining LeBron James (who did it three times), Devin Booker and Brandon Jennings. He is also the first Hawks player to score 50 since Shareef Abdur-Rahim did it in 2001.
Check out some highlights from his career night in the tweet embedded below.
Meek Mill Seems To Respond To 50 Cent Saying He Was Ready To Punch Him
50 Cent is on a press run, which means plenty of juicy quotes to get everyone going including one about Meek Mill
During his Breakfast Club chat, 50 reflected upon Meek's notorious beef with Drake, which spun off into a beef between Meek and Fif.
"People who pick fights with people who don't want to fight. Those are punks. Meek Mill when I ran into him finally, he said come here let me talk to you like a man. Pulled me to the side. Talking to him and I was looking at him, and I wanted to punch him. The stuff that he said, I wanted to punch him. And I didn't, I just looked at him and was like 'Yo, I don't understand why you felt like that. Because he's a battle artist, that's where you come from. So when he says something to Drake and doesn't respond and Drake says something back, I'm going 'What happened?' I was waiting for you and then you didn't say nothing back. And he felt like I was kicking him when he was down because of the momentum Drake had," 50 remembered.
While Meek didn't name any names, he seemed to respond to 50 having his name in his mouth by jumping on his favorite medium of Twitter with this:
It’s not a coincidence all these people bringing my name up at once lol I been moving too right and certain people not feeling it because most of these guys can’t get in the room! I been outside for years in the field!!! Now I’m helping changing laws now and freeing people— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) February 15, 2020
"It’s not a coincidence all these people bringing my name up at once lol I been moving too right and certain people not feeling it because most of these guys can’t get in the room! I been outside for years in the field!!! Now I’m helping changing laws now and freeing people," Meek typed.
Meek seems to be talking about one than one person. In addition to 50, another veteran of the Drake beef Quentin Miller had some things to say about Mill this week.
Kehlani Calls Out Joe Budden For Mocking Her YG Breakup Song
Joe Budden and co-hosts ripped apart Kehlani's breakup track about YG on the latest episode of their podcast.
Over the past week, two songs have been released that chronicle Kehlani and YG's relationship. The first one, "Konclusions", was a collaboration between the two artists and was shared on Valentine's Day. It announced that the on-and-off couple was back on good terms. Just three days later, Kehlani dropped a solo track, "Valentine's Day (Shameful)", detailing that she was now splitting from the Compton rapper.
On the latest episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, which uses a photo of Kehlani as its header, Budden, Rory and Mal pick apart the breakup track. "I feel like I've been hoodwinked cause it was just last week we came on this podcast, Rory made me listen to a YG and Kehlani song," Budden says. "I hated it on the first listen and then by the second listen I loved it. I was with this new image of YG in love and making songs like he was in love."
After giving the disclaimer that he messes with Kehlani's music, Budden proceeds to mock all the lyrics on "Valentine's Day (Shameful)" with his pals. "Somebody explain the woman's brain to me. You were immature three days ago?," he quips at one point. The crew goes on to laugh at certain platitudes she uses on the song and doubt the validity of her account.
Kehlani took to Twitter to respond to this unflattering breakdown of her vulnerable song. "joe budden is joke," she wrote in a since-deleted tweet. When a fan explained how upset she was to hear Budden & Co. go in on the singer like that, Kehlani replied, "disgusting." She then directly addressed Budden by replying to one his tweets: "the amount of misinformation and lies and lameness in this episode about me and you used my face is... lol gotta love it." Budden tried de-escalate the situation by flippantly responding, "We love you, it's jokes... feel better." He then appeared to shade her with a follow-up tweet that read, "I’m bout sick of you artists… never a peep through years of praise but wanna jump outta windows when you hear something you don’t like… newsflash, i am not friends with you n****s."
Nick Cannon Accuses Eminem Of Launching Pill Popping In Rap
Nick Cannon, once again, sits down with Vlad TV to discuss Eminem’s influence in pushing drug culture.
Nick Cannon might be able to teach a masterclass on Eminem with the amount of analysis he has on the Music To Be Murdered rapper. In his most recent sit down with Vlad TV, the two began with a discussion surrounding the feds finding drugs and guns on Lil Wayne‘s plane before shifting to Juice WRLD’s death.

Eventually, the two treaded into the conversation of drug culture in hip-hop. Although rappers have talked about drugs for years, Nick Cannon and Vlad agreed Em was one of the first rappers to “push” pill-popping in the rap game. “In fact, his first CD had a drawing of pills being broken in half,” Vlad added.
“I idolized Snoop. We smoke weed. All this pill poppin’ generation — I idolize E-40. We sell drugs, we don’t take ’em,” Cannon said. “I only know to place the blame on people who control the indoctrinated institutionalization. Someone has to bring this stuff to us. Someone has to glorify this stuff in order for us to do it. And only reason I’m saying that is because I believe it’s our duty to shift it.”
Nick Cannon, who 50 Cent recently dubbed “legendary corny,” listed off a slew of things that should be deemed cool instead of the use of drugs, such as education, learning about stocks, and adopting a plant-based diet.
Peep the full interview below.
Jay-Z and Nas Song, Produced By Just Blaze, Surfaces Online
Some might say the beef between Jay-Z and Nas produced some of the best battle songs in rap history with the "Takeover" and "Ether."
Their collabs after that have gotten a lot of attention too, whether it was the cut "Black Republicans" "Success" or "BBC."
Nas' song "The Scientist," produced by Just Blaze, has been living on the Internet for almost 10 years. But a version with Jay-Z's vocals on it was recently leaked.
"Hovito Brigante, my own people that got me / That’s what I get for snoozin’, moving too sloppy / I’m back brilliant, my brains is back in the building / The lights back on the fridge, you dig?” spits Jay in the snippet.
What's your favorite Jay-Z, Nas collab?
2 Chainz Still Puts Fear In Jack Thriller Years After Beef Escalated
Jack Thriller admits to saying “disrespectful” things about 2 Chainz in the past, and even though it’s been years, he’s still afraid of the rapper.
The story of Jack Thriller’s beef with 2 Chainz is a tale that has been told and retold for years. The comedian got himself into a bit of trouble with the Atlanta rapper years ago, and many weren’t sure why these two unlikely foes were going at one another. Thriller recently visited Hot 107.9 and took responsibility for stirring up hostility with 2 Chainz and he dropped the reason why he decided to square up in the first place.

“We got into it because he didn’t like me and I wanted to be his friend,” Jack Thriller said. “And I had got in my feelings. That was on some hoe sh*t and when he just didn’t react to me the way I wanted him to react to me, I threw a fit. I said something that I shouldn’t have said and I took it way too far on some clout-chasing, treasure trolly type sh*t. It got outta hand and I was really disrespectful to that guy. It was so uncalled for, so unwarranted and I’m a big fan. So, even when I tried to be mad, I couldn’t ’cause he kept on coming out with hit after hit after hit.”
“I felt so stupid ’cause I love him,” he continued. “But when I would see him and to see the hate in his eyes and the anger and the malice. He looked like he wanted to reach in and take my good eye and squeeze that b*tch, throw it on the ground, stomp that mother f*cker and put it out like a cigarette.”
Years ago, Jack Thriller was a guest on Drink Champs and they called 2 Chainz during the episode. Let’s just say things escalated quickly when Chainz lost his cool and said anything with Jack’s blood is “p*ssy.” Thriller added, “He said when he gon’ see me, it’s on ‘on sight.’ I’m not as mad as he is, that’s why I’m scared.” The two men haven’t spoken since that time. “If I find out where he at, I’m not gon’ go there,” Jack joked.
He also said he’s sent the rapper Edible Arrangements and singing telegrams with apologies, but he’s still making sure he avoids 2 Chainz at all costs. Watch the clip of his interview below.
