Azealia Banks Calls Out Wild 'N' Out For Making Her Cry


Another week, another Azealia Banks drama. The "Anna Wintour" singer is accusing Nick Cannon and his Wild 'N, Out crew of prejudice. In a lengthy Instagram post, Azealia claims she was set up by the show and was slammed with derogatory jokes about her appearance and skin color.

"They planned this - hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon ass freestyle battles ,(not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home," she wrote. "I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist."

Banks also used the IG post to let the cast of the show know how she really feels. 

"The most disgustingly basic, local, cattle call “urban” pseudo comedic “FAT BECause You sit in a chair all day” greasy soul food induced south of the mason Dixon ,self hatred. Ass It#backwards, post-Jim crow , post traumatic slave disorder true self esteem less, Ward of the state CLOWNS with their low scale and highly UNimpressive resumes."


I did Wildin’ out today. There were tons of pre-planned colorist jokes and of course .... cry baby cried. Some little scrawny black Atlanta twink was prepared for me. They planned this - hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon ass freestyle battles ,(not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home. I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist, then all of a sudden a choir of the most disgustingly basic, local, cattle call “urban” pseudo comedic “FAT BECause You sit in a chair all day” greasy soul food induced south of the mason Dixon ,self hatred. Ass It#backwards, post-Jim crow , post traumatic slave disorder true self esteem less, Ward of the state CLOWNS with their low scale and highly UNimpressive resumes, start going off about how the beautiful Azealia Banks looks! I’ve never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else than I did in that moment. Yemaya was really on stage . Yemaya .....

Nick Cannon, the show's creator and host responded to Banks' accusations with an Instagram post of his own. "Don’t you hate when you create your own storms but forget your umbrella??," Nick captioned the post.


Nick may be alluding to the fact that Banks knows how to dish it out to the people (Nicki Minaj, Cardi B) but quickly plays the victim when she's on the receiving end. 

Azealia Banks is currently prepping the release of her album Fantasea II: The Second Wave.

Jadakiss Signs With Roc Nation


Securing the bag. Jadakiss revealed via his Instagram account on Friday (July 13) that he just signed a deal with JAY-'s Roc Nation label. The post shows Kiss signing papers at a desk with the caption, 

“Made another + move today @rocnation thank y’all for everything you’ve done! Now let’s get it."



It's still unclear if it's an artist or management deal, but whichever it is. Jada is sure to feel right at home with the label as The Lox are already signed to the Roc. The group released their first album in 16 years "Filthy America... It's Beautiful" in 2016 via the Imprint.

Roc Nation is home to artists such as Rihanna, Rapsody, J. Cole and Meek Mill.  Jadakiss hasn't released a solo album since 2015's Top 5 Dead Or Alive. His last full project was a collaborative effort with Fabolous titled "Friday On Elm Street."

Cardi B Gives Birth To Baby Girl


Cardi B and husband, Offset welcomed their first child together on Tuesday, July 10. Cardi revealed the daughter's name with a nude pregnancy shoot on Instagram. 

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

Baby Kulture's middle name comes from her father's first and last name (Kiari Cephus). Her name was also inspired by Migos' breakout album Culture released in 2017. 


"One morning in September we woke up and decided to get married," Bardi said on Instagram. "We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin. I said I do, with no dress no make up and no ring!"

Don't expect to see a public photo of baby Kulture anytime soon. TMZ reports the couple are not interested in presenting their new born to the public, "despite a flood of offers from media outlets."

Cardi B and Offset have reportedly turned down offers worth $100k from multiple magazines, websites and photo agencies. Sources close to the couple tell TMZ that they have no desire to make a deal and won't consider offers, not until their daughter is at least 5 or 6 months old. 

The 26-year old wants to use the time to focus on being a mom and bond with her baby.
