Her song "Triggered (Freestyle)" sent out shock waves through social media, causing Jhené Aiko's fans to switch into attack mode. The single was a barrage of emotions regarding a failed relationship, and the public interpreted it as Jhené's way of sharing how she dealt with her 2018 breakup from Big Sean. Following the song's release, the rapper took some hits on social media as he was accused of infidelities or breaking the singer's heart.
Jhené later stated that her song was an outlet of frustrations and passions, and to prove that they were still good friends, the former couple shared photos of them spending time with each other at a beach. Just recently, it looked as if they were both enjoying a Hawaii vacation together, making them the most healthy celebrity exes of 2019.
The singer tweeted a message on Wednesday that gave fans a hint at how she overcame her "Triggered" moments and rid herself of resentment. "I use to be a jealous, bitter little b*tch when i was younger," she wrote. "Until i realized... there is love, happiness, wisdom, acceptance, peace and success in ABUNDANCE that we can ALL claim as our own and share with one another... so, why not do that sh*t? 🤷🏻♀️"
Jhené also dropped a sneak peek of her verse on the remix of Saweetie's "My Type" with City Girls. She called herself "J Henny" and spit a few bars. Let us know how you think she did.
Young Thug, Pop Smoke & A$AP Ferg Conquer This Week’s "FIRE EMOJI" Playlist
Tune in to our weekly mix of the biggest rap and R&B tracks.
This week’s FIRE EMOJI playlist profited an overflow of top-level content. As a result, many of our most deserving entrants had to be let go. With no more than 100 spots for grabs at any given time, the FIRE EMOJI playlist is not only a hot commodity but a test character and staying power.
This week, strong showings from Future, A$AP Ferg, Offset, Doja Cat and Jacquees create a logjam at the top of the order. Pop Smoke, for his part, was able to cement his claim to legitimacy by scoring a coveted Nicki Minaj verse on the remix to “Welcome to the Party.”
Elsewhere, Swae Lee was fortunate to have Drake on hand, rallying him to the finish line, his recent output doing little to arouse interest in the brotherly duo. “Won’t Be Late” will surely have the opposite, positive effect on his public profile.
Lastly, it was Young Thugger who reigned supreme in the week that was Sunday the 11th through Saturday the 17th of August – with So Much Fun landing not one but three spots on our list. Be sure to follow all of HNHH Spotify playlists below, and enjoy the wet season while supplies last.
DJ Envy Suffers Wrath Of The Internet Following Yung Miami Shooting Question
The public was appalled.
Sometimes moments occur during interviews that give viewers pause, and earlier today, The Breakfast Club's DJ Envy provided that moment. Quality Control Music founders Pierre "Pee" Thomas and Kevin "Coach K" Lee made their way to Hot 97's morning radio show to talk all things QCM in support of the label's recent release, Control the Streets, Volume 2. While there, the label heads discussed a myriad of subjects including the recent shooting involving City Girls' Yung Miami.
Last week, Yung Miami, real name Caresha Brownlee, was leaving a recording studio in Miami when an unknown assailant opened fire on her vehicle. Although her G-Wagon took multiple hits, the pregnant rapper was left unharmed. During Pee's interview with The Breakfast Club, he discussed what it was like to receive the frightening news of the shooting. Envy jumped in and asked, "What was more of a shock? When her car got shot or her being pregnant?" There's a brief awkward pause as Pee and Coach K seemed dumbfounded by the question. Envy answers his own inquiry and said, "It had to be her being pregnant."
"Nah, when her car got shot up," Pee replied. "That's scary." Envy attempted to recover the moment and continue the conversation, but the internet was not kind after the clip of the interview circulated. The Shade Room shared the video, prompting Envy's co-host, Charlamagne Tha God, to slide in the comments to say, "I have no idea why @djenvy talks." Check just a handful of Twitter responses from the thousands of social media reactions to Envy's question below.
Yung Miami Is All Smiles As She Dances With Growing Baby Bump
Yung Miami looks to be in good spirits.
Yung Miami was the subject of a shooting outside of her go-to Miami studio at the top of the month and by the grace of a higher power, she and her unborn baby managed to get out unscathed. After the fact, the City Girls rapper shared a statement to her fans on how she was holding up and it wasn’t good. “I keep looking at my pictures & all my mentions like it really could’ve been R.I.P.,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m really not okay!”
Thankfully, Yung Miami looks to be back to her regular happy self since she shared a video to her Instagram feed that sees her wining and smiling with her adorable growing baby bump. The “Twerk” rapper is wearing a green one-piece suit and glowing all at the same time.
After Yung got out safe from the shooting trolls had the audacity to make fun of the rapper but thankfully Cardi B came to her defense. “Y’all love to joke around! Just remember those little comments that y’all be doing for clout, that shit ain’t worth bad karma to you, bitch,” Cardi said. “‘Cause that karma come! Y’all want to be fucking funny in the comments, hoe? That shit come right back to you, bitch. Your baby father might get clapped up. Or your mama.”
Quality Control’s P Speaks On City Girl JT’s Prison Sentence
Might we get a City Girls album by year’s end?
Quality Control has been keeping their presence felt, most recently culminating in their compilatory Control The Streets: Volume 2. With features from Migos, Lil Baby, City Girls, Lil Yachty, DaBaby, and many more, the label clearly has no intention on slowing their breakneck pace – even if it means breaking the inherent promise of their namesake. While some feel as if the QC brand has diluted of late, others welcome the prolific drop rate. And look for it to get even more hectic upon JT’s release, and the City Girls reunion transpires in full.
Today, QC CEOs Coach K and P sat down with Rosenberg, Laura, and Ebro to discuss a variety of topics. Eventually, conversation turned to the incarcerated JT; though Yung Miami has been holding it down accordingly, the City Girls haven’t quite felt the same since she’s been gone. Luckily, P confirms that she’ll be right back to work the moment she touches down. “When JT come home she going to the halfway house,” confirms P, around the 34-minute mark. “But the great thing about the halfway house is they let you go on work release, so soon as she’s out she’s gonna be locked in the studio working,” explains P, providing a silver lining to the situation.
“Hopefully she’ll be out next month,” he suggests. “In a few weeks if everything go how it’s supposed to go.” As for now, JT is currently serving a bid for felony identity theft charges. Look for that to come to an end within the next couple of months, should all go according to plan. In the meantime, keep City Girls momentum alive by streaming Control The Streets 2 right here.
Quality Control "Control The Streets Vol. 2" Tracklist: Migos, Megan Thee Stallion, & More
“Control The Streets Vol. 2” is about to go crazy.
Get your magnifying glasses ready because Quality Control just announced the complete tracklist to their upcoming compilation project and it’s loaded with new material. Considering the fact that we’ve already heard nearly ten of the songs that are on the final cut for CTS2, we knew that it would be stacked to the brim. Our suspicion was confirmed when today, P and the rest of his team at QC shared the tracklist, which contains thirty-six songs.
The first half of the tape is dedicated to showing off the heavy artillery on Quality Control’s roster. Think the Migos, solo tracks from Takeoff, Quavo and Offset, the City Girls, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby and other heavy hitters at the label. There will be features from Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Meek Mill, Tee Grizzley, and others. The second half of the project is reserved for more of the unknown names that QC has to offer. 24 Heavy, Jordan Hollywood, Duke Deuce, YRN Murk, Street Bud, and others all have tracks on the compilation. Surprisingly enough, Cardi B will not be featured on Control The Streets Vol. 2, which has many of her fans commenting on the numerous social posts QC put up. In her defense, she’s not actually an official Quality Control-signed artist. She simply uses the label for management.
Which song are you most excited to hear. Check out the tracklist below.

Cardi B, French Montana, Yo Gotti & More Sued For Jacking A Beat Without Paying
DJ JMK is going after a group of recognized rappers.
Kirk Edwards who goes by DJ JMK has named a number of influential musicians in his lawsuit since he’s accusing them all of stealing samples from one of his tracks without giving him proper credit or paying. According to TMZ, Cardi B, French Montana, Yo Gotti, City Girls and Master P are all being called on for using the beat “Choppa Style,” that’s currently sitting with over nine-million views on YouTube.
JMK claims that Cardi B and City Girls used a sample of his track on their notable collaboration “Twerk” while Yo Gotti and French Montana sampled his beat on their 2017 hit “Oh Yeah.” According to legal documents, JMK says he made the beat in November of 2000 and would play his track at clubs he would DJ at. He says all the artists have “misappropriated many of the recognizable and key protected elements” when they illegally used his work. He’s suing for copyright infringement for an unspecified amount.
Speaking of Cardi B, the “Press” rapper recently clapped back at any trolls who were making fun of Yung Miami after she was the subject of a studio shooting. “Y’all love to joke around! Just remember those little comments that y’all be doing for clout, that shit ain’t worth bad karma to you, bitch,” Cardi said. “‘Cause that karma come! Y’all want to be fucking funny in the comments, hoe? That shit come right back to you, bitch. Your baby father might get clapped up. Or your mama.”
City Girls Upgraded To "City Girls With A Passport" Ahead Of QC’s Album Drop
Yung Miami and Quavo are revving up for “Control The Streets Vol. 2.”
The City Girls, singlehandedly represented by a pregnant Yung Miami, will stop at nothing to keep their momentum going strong. Early mock-ups of Quality Control’s upcoming group project, have the City Girls tapped for three spot appearances, the previously released “Come On” and two others titled “Leave Em Alone” and “Soakin Wet.”
For all we know, QC’s flagship duo could feature several more, upon its completion. They have, after all, captured the hearts of tweeners the World over by stammering out the gate, unpolished. I do say that with total and utter reverence.
To mark the occasion of Control The Streets Vol. 2’s imminent release, Yung Miami and Quavo have taken to Instagram in plugging the City Girls’ contributions on the project. The generally combative Yung Miami is of different sorts in the promotional poster, as she appears to poke fun at her struggles to maintain a passport in a previous lifetime. Yung Miami is landlocked no more.
As indicated above and below, Quality Control’s Control The Streets Vol. 2is slated to drop at the tail end of this week, boasting an impressive roster of talent: Migos, Lil Baby, DaBaby, Saweetie, PnB Rock, Playboi Carti, Gucci Mane, Young Thug and of course the City Girls. Are you intrigued?
Kodak Black Apologizes To Yung Miami & Southside: "I Realize How Petty That Move Was"
Kodak Black owns up to his petty actions.
Kodak Black's conflict with Southside and Yung Miami has come to a close, upon his realization he may have been "in the wrong" all along. Before sauntering off to the finish line, it's worth understanding the initial line of inquiry. Kodak Black let off some prison bars over his jail phone, then demanded that Southside produce the beat free of cost. In the same breath of conversation, Kodak raps about punching Yung Miami in her pregnant belly. Shocking yes, but not so much when come to think of it: Kodak Black's track record for lewd commentary is pretty startling.

From that point onward, Southside took to defending himself and his baby mother-to-be against Kodak Black trolls on Twitter. Yung Miami did the same moments later, telling a fan off with expletive language. "Poor ass n***a Kodak ain't dust shit," she wrote (indirectly) in the comments of a miscellaneous IG post.
For whatever reason, something came over Kodak Black in the past few days- for him to recant on his earlier statement. If I understand him correctly, he's labeled his earlier antics as a "gimmick" of some sort, in the spirit of "proper manhood." First, he hashtagged #YungMiami, then he wrote the following apology. You'd have to think a publicist was involved at some point or another.
