2Pac's Sister Is Suing Tom Whalley For Embezzlement

2pac Reportedly Wanted To Go After Common Amidst Ice Cube Beef

Back in the mid-90s, amidst the fiery rap feud between Common and Ice Cube, an unexpected name reportedly desired to step in – none other than the legendary 2Pac. The revelation surfaces courtesy of Napoleon, an ex-member of Outlawz and a close associate of the enigmatic rapper. During a candid conversation with The Art Of Dialogue, Napoleon unveils an untold chapter of the overlooked Common vs Ice Cube rivalry, shedding light on 2Pac’s contemplations.

“I remember when the East Coast-West Coast thing was heating up, I think Common and Cube was going through their beef, like they were dissing each other,” Napoleon said. “I remember ‘Pac was like, ‘See, if I was cool with Cube right now, I’d be going after Common for him, but now I’m staying out of it.’”

Curiously, the only factor that seemed to deter 2Pac from jumping into the fray was a lingering discord he shared with Cube during that period. Despite this, Napoleon asserts that 2Pac held a profound respect for Cube. Napoleon concludes with a reflective note, expressing gratitude that 2Pac refrained from targeting Common, surmising that the two would have forged a unique connection.

Recent weeks have witnessed a surge in curiosity surrounding 2Pac’s narrative. The spark ignited with a recent police raid at a Las Vegas residence, unveiled to be linked to the ongoing investigation into 2Pac’s tragic demise. This property belonged to Keefe D, a figure long intertwined with the rapper’s unsolved murder.

Adding to the intrigue, a substantial buzz emanated from the sale of a ring worn by 2Pac during one of his final public appearances. What are your thoughts on 2Pac’s contemplation to engage with Common amidst his feud with Ice Cube? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

DJ Khaled's Shocking Twerking Video Leaves Hip Hop Stars Speechless

DJ Khaled’s Shocking Twerking Video Leaves Hip Hop Stars Speechless

DJ Khaled, known for his sense of humor, recently stirred up a storm among his Hip Hop peers with a viral video that seemingly shows him twerking in a swimming pool. The clip, shared on Akademiks’ Instagram page, features Khaled diving into the pool and swimming underwater while a song by Danny Towers, DJ Scheme, Ski Mask the Slump God, and Luh Tyler plays in the background. However, the video quickly cuts to an overweight man, who bears a resemblance to Khaled, twerking beneath the water’s surface. Although the video’s origin remains unclear, many rappers had strong reactions.

Outraged by what he saw, Wack 100 commented, “WTF DID I JUST SEE. NAW MAN THE WORLD IS CHANGING. THIS ISN’T WHAT WE DO… JUST ASK THE COMMUNITY.” On the other hand, Rick Ross took a lighter approach, writing, “Haaa” to express his amusement.

This isn’t the first time DJ Khaled has made headlines for a booty-shaking video. In May 2021, during the holy month of Ramadan, he faced backlash from fellow Muslims for sharing a clip of bikini-clad women twerking. The footage came from the music video shoot for his collaboration “Body In Motion” with Bryson Tiller, Lil Baby, and Roddy Ricch. Fans reminded Khaled of the significance of Ramadan, urging him to adhere to his religion and drawing attention to the ongoing conflict in Palestine. DJ Khaled’s twerking antics may have caused a stir, but it seems he won’t be shaking it in anyone’s pool anytime soon.

Singer Adele (33) announced this Wednesday afternoon on which day her long-awaited and brand new album ’30’ will be released. Make a note in your diary, the date is Friday 19 November.

“I learned a lot of things about myself during this process”

Adele also shared a personal story with the announcement. “I’m nowhere near where I hoped to be when I started this three years ago. The opposite even. I always fall back on routine to feel safe. I’ve always done that. And yet I went for it, even though it was a tangle of inner turmoil. I’ve learned a lot of things about myself during this process.’

She continues: ‘I gradually got along with it and I think I really found myself again. I would even dare to say that I have never had such a peaceful feeling in my life. That’s why I’m now ready to release my album.’

The singer says that she has had a lot of support from her best friend: ‘He was my best friend during this turbulent period in my life. When I wrote it, it was the friend who came over and cheered me up with a bottle of wine and a takeaway. The wise friend who gave the best advice. But also brought out the one who wanted it in me. The friend who stays up all night for you and holds your hand, while you cry incessantly. (….) But above all the friend who always came to check on me, even if I didn’t do that myself anymore, because I was so devoured by grief. I’ve repacked myself and rebuilt everything again and that’s what my album is about.’

Adele fans have already had to wait five years for new music from the singer. The new song ‘Easy On Me’ will be released on October 15th.

Kanye West Puts Ranch Up For Sale For $11 million

If you are still looking for a ranch on a large piece of land in the American state of Wyoming, you can report to Kanye West (44). The rapper has put his ranch there for sale for 11 million dollars.

The sale of Kanye, who is currently in divorce from Kim Kardashian, does not mean the musician’s departure from Wyoming. He has a ranch there, which is a lot bigger. The farm that is for sale stands on a plot of 1500 hectares. According to the New York Post, the land around the ranch he is currently holding is almost twice as large.

Kanye’s love for rural Wyoming was rumored to have been a major factor in the rapper’s divorce from the reality star. He would have liked to have spent more time in the state in the middle of America with their children North (8), Saint (5), Chicago (3) and Psalm (2), while she preferred to stay with her family in California.

Controversial Music Singer R. Kelly Increasingly Popular THEURBANSPOTLIGHT.COM

Controversial Music Singer R. Kelly Increasingly Popular

The sales figures of American singer R. Kelly (54) have risen sharply since he was found guilty of human trafficking. According to ‘Rolling Stone’, his album sales have risen more than 500 percent since the ruling on September 27. Streaming figures also show growth, according to the American music magazine.

The 54-year-old has sexually abused women and girls and had them abused. The singer would have used his celebrity to influence the women and girls. But the lawsuit and the jury’s verdict have apparently had a positive effect on the sales figures of the singer, who faces a life sentence.

Also, the popularity of the singer in general has risen. While his music was still streamed an average of about 5.4 million times a week in 2017, this has increased to 6.4 million times a week in 2021.

On Wednesday, YouTube announced that R. Kelly’s official channels had been removed. In any case, the video clips can no longer be viewed there.

Pooh Shiesty Going For Trial Will The Rapper Get A Life Sentence In Prison THEURBANSPOTLIGHT.COM

Pooh Shiesty Going For Trial – Will The Rapper Get A Life Sentence In Prison?

Lontrell “Pooh Shiesty” Williams, a Memphis artist, surrendered to authorities in July. Pooh Shiesty was said to be involved in a shooting incident. Pooh Shiesty surrendered shortly after hearing that the police had an arrest warrant against him.

According to XXL Magazine, Williams was accused of shooting a security guard. The alleged occurrence took place during Memorial Day weekend. There is genuine video evidence of the event. Despite the fact that the video footage does not clearly indicate who fired the shot, authorities obtained an arrest warrant for him. His career was just beginning to take off. However, his career came to a screeching halt after this incident.

Nonetheless, if found guilty, Williams will face some severe penalties. Originally, Williams was supposed to appear in court on December 19th. However, according to The Source, Williams switched his mind about the delay. And attorneys for both sides agree. As a result, William’s hearing has been rescheduled for October 25th. A four-count federal indictment had been brought against him. The maximum possible sentence for WILLIAMS is life imprisonment.

From what I’ve seen, I don’t think Williams will get much time. Of course, there are aspects of the case that are problematic for Williams. His showing off hundred-dollar bills on Instagram and a Louis Vuitton bag with over $40,000 in cash might be the nail in his coffin.
