6 of the remaining venues on the "Nicki WRLD" can not guarantee the Barbies of a foolproof live performance expertise.
In mild of latest manufacturing points, Nicki Minaj is stopping at nothing to make sure that all remaining Nicki WRLD concert events go off with no hitch. TMZ contacted venues that will likely be internet hosting upcoming Nicki WRLD dates to see what measures Nicki has taken to stop any additional hiccups - each single final one of them responding favorably to the inquiry: "electrical energy" is atop their checklist of considerations main into the large day(s).
As of this writing, 10 concert events stay on Nicki Minaj's European itinerary. The 4 venues from which TMZ obtained the nod, are these located in Birmingham (England), Glasgow (Scotland), Amsterdam (Holland), and Zurich (Switzerland).
The different 6 venues on the live performance grid look like extra reticent, as a result of because it stands: no less than just a few of them will likely be counting on Nicki Minaj's know-how and no their very own. The Frankfurt (Germany) gig, specifically, runs the chance of repeating the identical electrical energy points that occurred in Bratislava and Bordeaux, as a result of for that purpose alone - that and, the venue's in-house employees is not precisely glowing in confidence heading into their March 22nd reserving.

TMZ remains to be awaiting phrase from the opposite 5 venues that have not been accounted for to this point. Barbies in Ireland, England, Germany, Switzerland, and Luxembourg, are being requested to maintain their fingers in lieu of the potential dangers concerned. Although the cancelations are little question a blemish on Nicki Minaj's report to paying followers, it is grow to be fairly clear that every one "tech points" are by the way a results of the rapper's overarching ambition in relation to setting new benchmarks. It appears that Nicki Minaj would a lot fairly see herself come up brief than placed on a subpar present, particularly at these ticket costs. I will maintain my fingers crossed, now you do the same.
Trippie Redd Lashes Out At Bow Wow: "You're Not From Ohio"
Ohio is certainly not the most glamorous state to come out in terms rap. Although Kid Cudi, Machine Gun Kelly, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Bow Wow and Trippie Redd have all made it out the state, it is not necessarily a musical hub like New York or Los Angeles. Quickly becoming one the biggest names to come out Ohio, Trippie Redd had some selective words for Bow Wow after comments were made about him owning the city. Shad Moss made it big out Columbus and, while he originally claimed Ohio, he has recently been claiming Atlanta. Trippie appears to have taken issue with the comments and has lashed out on social media.
"You don't run this motherf---er over here. You're not from Ohio," said Trippie in an Instagram post. The "Love Scars" artist tagged Shad directly in the clip, making sure he caught wind the comments. Bow Wow indeed saw the post and chimed in, saying he's not about to entertain a beef with Trippie. "What i look like going to war with a kid," wrote Moss before claiming he will let it slide. Trippie's response was a vicious tirade against Bow Wow, calling him every name in the book from a "bitch ass n---a" to a "sissy ass n---a."
Check out the video below, as well as Bow Wow's response. Who do you think runs Ohio at this point? Is it any the two?

Regional Rankings 2017: Best Cities & Regions In Hip Hop This Year
To kick f our 2017 year-end coverage, we're reintroducing a feature we skipped last year, the regional ranking. In 2015, we compiled a ranked list the most popping scenes located in cities, regions, or states, taking into consideration established artists dropping albums as well as up-and-coming talent bubbling below the surface. That year, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Toronto finished first through third.

In the two years that have followed, rap (and music in general) has become even less tied to physical location, with cross-country collaborations or even partnerships (think Playboi Carti and Key! with A$AP Mob or Isaiah Rashad with TDE) becoming more common, relocation in pursuit stardom (think Metro Boomin moving from St. Louis to Atlanta) becoming more common, and SoundCloud continuing to rise as a platform that can propel artists from small towns in the middle nowhere to stardom. In 2017, we've seen an unprecedented number kids like Trippie Redd and Tay-K emerge from cities with little to no previous rep (Canton, Ohio and Dallas, Texas) and score viral hits and/or powerful co-signs. That reveals not only a more decentralized music industry, but also one that increasingly understands how to gauge and capitalize upon youth trends that happen away from more tried-and-true channels. If we were still relying on dusty A&Rs more so than YouTube view counts, then Diggy Simmons would be topping the charts while Cardi B still danced in New York clubs.
