(AllHipHop News) Police in Atlanta are one step closer to catching the gunman who shot Atlanta rapper Yung Mazi inside of a Waffle House.
The incident occurred on December 27th, when Yung Mazi was inside the restaurant and a gunman walked in and open fire.
Mazi was struck once in the shoulder, and taken to the hospital, treated and released.
He told police officers he had no idea who the gunman was, or why he was shot.
Police hope the surveillance footage will help identify the unknown gunman.
Yung Mazi, who claims he’s been shot over 10 times, believes “God has made him bulletproof.”
(AllHipHop News) It’s been a rough week for Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy, who’s in the middle of a gang/social media feud with R&B singer, Chris Brown.
Luckily, Soulja wasn’t home when the burglary occurred, but sources said that the bandit’s face was captured on film.
Now, Soulja could be facing legal action from the landlord of the mansion, who claims the rapper is nothing but a troublemaker who is thousands of dollars behind on his rent.
It’s all too much for the landlord who is citing Soulja Boy’s recent arrest on gun charges and probation violation, in addition to the recent burglary and Soulja’s apparent cash problems, as the reason for his issues with the rap star.
If Soulja doesn’t cough up the money by the end of the week, the landlord is planning legal action against the rapper, who frequently showcases the lavish mansion on his Instagram and Snapchat social media networks.Tweet
(AllHipHop News) Sorry Atlanta fans. The popular series will not be returning to television this year.
Deadline reports season two of the Donald Glover-led FX comedy series is scheduled to air in 2018.
Glover’s production schedule is causing the delay in more Atlanta episodes.
The Stone Mountain, Georgia representative is set to star as a young Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo Star Wars prequel.
FX is “fully supportive” of the postponement.
“We are thrilled for him,” stated the network’s CEO John Landgraf about Glover’s turn as Lando.
The cable channel’s openness to waiting a year for more shows could be due to the fact Atlanta was a commercial and critical success.
Atlanta’s premiere episode drew the highest viewers for cable comedy since 2013.
The Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy was also rewarded to Atlanta.
There are also reports that Glover signed a production deal with FX.
“Atlanta was just the beginning, the breakout comedy of the year and a series revered as much for its originality as its honest look at the experience of being aspiring, young and black in that legendary city,” said Nick Grad, president of Original Programming for FX. “We’re proud to partner with Donald in an overall deal that will allow him to continue turning his creative vision into incredible television.”Tweet
(AllHipHop Rumors) The headlines were stunning and the “fake news” went bonkers on poor Flo Rida.
Celebrity guests have been turning down Trump administration requests to perform at the inauguration ceremony in droves but one rapper may have agreed…
A source close to rapper Flo Rida tells Radar Online he’s set to perform at the inauguration, and will even get $1 million for it!
Well people went crazy after RadarOnline published this tidbit of info. People went IN on the Florida rapper, his rap style and even his hairline. WHY? FAKE NEWS!!!!
GossipCop shot the rumor down, but the damage was done!
Flo Rida is NOT performing at Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration, despite an inaccurate webloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We’re told it’s “B.S.”
And, Flo Rida even took a stand against Trump previously and people didn’t praise him for it.
Flo Rida, however, is the same rapper that pulled out of performing at the 2015 Miss USA pageant after Trump made comments about Mexicans being “rapists.” The site notes this in its piece, but then alleges that the rapper has accepted the supposed $1 million offer because he has tax problems.
Salute, Flo Rida. He has the mainstream on smash and the IRS on his back. That mean’s he’s making a lot of money.Tweet
(AllHipHop News) Kodak Black’s most recent interview with The Breakfast Club aired today, and the radio show sit down was filled with several awkward moments.
The Q&A began with Charlamagne Tha God asking a masked Kodak about his decision to challenge Lil Wayne to a fight for the “Best Rapper Alive” title.
Kodak ignored CTG’s question and then told Angela Yee, “I don’t even want to talk about him. He’s too old… That’s what I said. Y’all ain’t finna have me tweeting right now.”
Later in the conversation, Charlamagne brought up Wayne again.
“Were you upset when Lil Wayne said he didn’t know who you were?” asked the host.
“Yeah that. N-gga, you know who I am. Nicki Minaj knows who I am,” said the South Florida rapper.
Yee attempted to defend Wayne by suggesting the Young Money head “lives in a bubble” and may not be aware of what’s happening outside his own immediate world.
“He just don’t wanna say, ‘Yeah I know bruh,'” Kodak responded. “Cause he knows I’m pressure.”
In a 2016 interview, Lil Wayne did state he was not familiar with new artists Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, or Kodak Black.
“I swear to God I didn’t know you were saying people’s names just now, so that should probably answer that question. I just do my own thing,” said Wayne.
Kodak answered back with a tweet that read, “Lil Wayne ain’t the best f-cking rapper alive… I am.”Tweet
(AllHipHop News) For some reason, Meek Mill decided to throw himself in the middle of the recent talk about celebrity boxing.
The Dreamchasers leader called out his longtime rival Drake to put on the gloves, and Meek even suggested his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj could be the ring girl.
Surprisingly, Meek turned his attention back to Drake after the Toronto native announced he would no longer perform his Grammy-nominated diss track “Back To Back.”
While Drake and Nicki have yet to respond to the challenge, two other Meek Mill adversaries have offered to take on the “Litty” rhymer.
“I’ll beat dat ass for free & Nicki can be the get a ring girl,” wrote The Game on Instagram. “Everybody uncle face having ass.”
Fellow former Nicki beau Safaree posted, “Drake don’t got time but I do.”
Safaree has been taking shots at Meek for years.

(AllHipHop News) A local Wisconsin police department spent days answering phone calls from people hoping to speak with Lil Uzi Vert.
Apparently, an unknown prankster posted the Baraboo PD’s non-emergency phone number on several social media sites claiming it belongs to the Philadelphia-raised rapper.
“Our communications center has been inundated with phone calls asking for a specific rapper by the name of ‘Lil Uzi,’” said Baraboo Police Captain Robert Sinden.
The calls began on January 10, and the department received between 100 to 200 calls for Uzi per hour.
“I’ve never heard of that artist,” Sinden added. “But he must be somewhat popular.”
Baraboo PD was worried the high amount of calls would occupy the dispatch center, and they were forced to change the non-emergency phone number for after regular work hours to a recorded line.
As of Thursday, the phone Lil Uzi Vert calls had decreased, but some individuals continue to dial into the police.Tweet
(AllHipHop Rumors) Meek Mill has suddenly decided to ride the wave of Soulja Boy and Chris Brown (more infamously known as BHRIS BROWN.
Meek Mill said he would be willing to fight Drake live on PPV for a cool $5 Million. Now, he wasn’t talking that before he and Nickl broke up, but OK. Not mad at the prospect of these guys fighting.
Only thing is, Drake would never do it. Crazy thing is, Drake would probably win! However, we never know since Meek hails from Philly so he has a Broad Street shot at victory.
BUT, we all remember this:
What’s even funnier is that Meek said Nicki can be the ring girl. What are they going to fight for her honor?
How crazy is it that these guys were pretty cool at one point.

(AllHipHop News) An activist is urging Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead to donate their Coachella fees to pro-LGBTQ groups via a new petition.
The move is in response to reports that billionaire Philip Anschutz, owner of Coachella parent company AEG Live, which operates Goldenvoice, the company that launched the festival in 1999, has donated significant funds to groups supporting anti-Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer (LGBTQ) agendas.
Now a petition set up on the Care2 website by activist Sarah Rose calls on the headline acts for the upcoming music festival in Indio, California to consider giving their appearance fees to LGBTQ support organisations such as The Trevor Project, Trans Lifeline and the Human Rights Campaign.
“As a transgender woman and advocate for the LGBTQ community, my genuine hope is that these artists can turn a bad situation into a positive one,” Care2 LGBTQ issues advocate Sarah Rose told Billboard of the petition which has gathered signatures from more than 5,600 supporters. “I’m a diehard music fan and a musician myself, and I strongly believe that music shouldn’t be used as a means to discriminate.”
When Coachella confirmed its 2017 lineup earlier this month, a number of controversial reports emerged, which tied Anschutz to anti-LGBTQ and climate change denial groups over the years.
The 77-year-old businessman, whose company also promoted 2016’s most lucrative festival, Desert Trip, denied the allegations, shooting down reports that he has worked against the LGBTQ community as “fake news” and “garbage.”
In a statement, Anschutz said that he was proud that his businesses employed people from diverse backgrounds and that he withdrew support for any anti-LGBTQ groups once he became aware of their discriminatory agendas.
Coachella will be held from April 14-16 and April 21-23 of this year.Tweet
(AllHipHop News) Brooklyn rapper Joey Badass is celebrating the success of his hit single “Devastated,” which has been certified gold.
The RIAA certified the record on January 6 for moving over 500,000 units of the song, which he debuted at Coachella on in April of 2016.
“No words mane just utter bliss and elation. We on our way to greatness and all it ever took was patience,” Joey said referencing the inspirational lyrics of the song.
“Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years. #Grateful. AABA coming soon just wait on it!!!” Joey exclaimed.
Joey also explained his recent hiatus from social media, while promising his fans a “special treat” as he readies A.B.B.A.
“I’m sure you guys noticed I haven’t been f##king with social media lately because I’ve been focused on the music but this is something worthy of posting,” Joey Badass promised.Tweet
The Weeknd drops a video for his song “Party Monster”Tweet
Apple is making a stronger push into creating original, video content in order to compete with Spotify. The company, which purchased Dr. Dre’s Beats By Dre in $3 billion for May of 2015, is reportedly working with the super-producer on an untitled show. While details were scant, the Wall Street Journal confirmed the unnamed show is in the works, as Apple snaps up the rights to other high-profile originals, like “Carpool Karoake.”
Rapper Young Thug received some bad news today, when he learned there is a warrant out for his arrest. It looks like Jeffery failed to show up in court a second time to face charges over a tinted window. Young Thug was already arrested once in December at an Atlanta mall over the tint, and now he’s wanted again for missing his court date.
Lil Yachty fans will rejoice upon hearing news about his upcoming debut album. Yachty has revealed his first official album will be titled Teenage Emotions. “My fans are so loyal and dedicated that I don’t care that much about winning people over,” Lil Yachty told MTV. “I know it’s gonna change and people will eventually give my s##t a chance, bro.”Tweet
(AllHipHop Rumors) Lawd Charlie Sheen is so disrespectful. It must be the drugs!
Although Rihanna has been pretty positive and peaceful lately, she still at one time was the Queen of Petty and the Queen of Clap Backs. Let’s see if she responds to old crazy Sheen. I’m honestly just patiently waiting for her to do so!
Apparently Charlie Sheen still hasn’t gotten over Rihanna’s alleged dismissal from back in 2014. Sheen previously blasted the singer after claiming that she rejected to meet his girlfriend while they all dined at an LA restaurant.
Sheen, being reckless as usual, took to Twitter to chronicle the experience in a wild rant. Sheen certainly had time as he wrote.
“so, I took my gal out to dinner last night with her best friends for her Bday. we heard Rihanna was present as well. I sent a request over to her table to introduce my fiancé Scotty to her, as she is a huge fan. (personally I couldn’t pick her out of a line-up at gunpoint) well, the word we received back was that there were too many paps outside and it just wasn’t possible at this time. At this time? AT THIS TIME?? lemme guess, we’re to reschedule another random 11 million to 1 encounter with her some other night…? no biggie for me; it would have been 84 interminable seconds of chugging Draino and “please kill me now” that I’d never get back. My Gal, however, was NOT OK with it. Nice impression you left behind, Bday or not. Sorry we’re not KOOL enough to warrant a blessing from the Princess. (or in this case the Village idiot) you see THIS is the reason that I ALWAYS take the time. THIS is why I’m in this thing 31 awesome years. Good will and common courtesy, carefully established over time to exist radically in concert with a code of gratitude! See ya on the way down, (we always do) and actually, it was a pleasure NOT meeting you. clearly we have NOTHING in common when it comes to respect for those who’ve gone before you. I’m guessing you needed those precious 84 seconds to situate that bad wig before you left the restaurant.”
Sheen recently stopped by Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live’ to chat with Andy Cohen, and let’s just say he hadn’t forgotten about the Rihanna encounter at all.
Andy, in typical Andy fashion, couldn’t wait to stir up some drama.
Cohen asked whether he and Rihanna ever managed to settle their differences.
“Oh, that b—h. No, no, no. No, she abandoned common courtesy and common sense,” replied Sheen.
Rihanna responded to the 2014 incident with a tweet that read,
“If that old queen don’t get ha diapers out of a bunch.”
Bad gal RiRi hasn’t responded yet, but I sure bet that when she does it’ll be good. I feel like Sheen overacted both times. What are your thoughts?

(AllHipHop News) Erykah Badu has been announced as an honoree at Essence’s Black Women in Music celebration.
The 45-year-old singer is to be recognized for her work at an invite-only gala hosted by the magazine on February 9th, in Los Angeles.
The event is to take place during Grammy Week, and will also honor those nominated at the Grammy Awards, taking place on February 12.
Essence’s gala will coincide with the 20th anniversary of Erykah’s debut album Baduizm, which took home a Grammy award for best R&B album thanks to its hits such as “On & On” and “Next Lifetime.”
“From the time that she first hit the scene with Baduizm, we all fell in love with the genius that is Erykah Badu,” Essence editor-in-chief Vanessa De Luca said in a press release.
Other stars previously recognized at Essence’s Black Women in Music gala include Mary J. Blige, Solange Knowles, Kelly Rowland, Jill Scott and Janelle Monae.Tweet
(AllHipHop Rumors) Petty level 100!
After news spread that Future fans were circulating a petition to have Future sing the National Anthem at the Atlanta Falcons Vs. the Seattle Seahawks game spread, we just learned that the Atlanta Falcon’s official DJ, DJ Jay Envy has confirmed that he will indeed be playing Future’s music during the team’s play off game this weekend.
This is petty indeed. They just won’t let the Seattle Seahawks’s quarterback a.k.a. Future’s ex-fiancee/baby mama, Ciara’s, new husband be great.
Since the idea of Future singing the anthem as well as its accompanying petition was shot down, Future’s allies had to sneak that music in somehow.
It’s all ridiculous to me. Future has no reason to be beefing with Russell, and their fan bases really have no business going at each other’s throats.
Although Atlanta-native and Falcons’ DJ Jay Envy says he’s playing Future’s music because he was raised in South Atlanta, we know why he really is . LOL.
Well Future Hive, there will be quite a bit of Future music played before and during the game this weekend. The funny thing is, I feel like Wilson doesn’t even care. Future might as well start working on all of them being a nicely blended family honestly.Tweet
(AllHipHop Rumors) Look at Turk doing some good!
Kodak Black certainly got people talking when he declared that he was the best rapper alive over Lil Wayne.
While many of us wondered what drug of choice was he on that week, a lot of others took it as serious disrespect.
Kodak may have been bothered by one of Lil Wayne’s interviews where Weezy said he didn’t know who he was along with a lot of these other trash rappers.
Well Tunechi was immediately backed by fellow former Hot Boys member Turk. Turk addressed Kodak’s claims by saying,
“I f-ck with Kodak Black, but come on man, y’all already know. Ain’t no n-gga f-cking with Wayne when it comes to this motherf-cking pen game…….[Wayne’s] going down as the greatest.”
Now Turk has called up Kodak Black to address the comments.
Turk let Kodak Black know that Wayne doesn’t have a problem with Kodak and that Wayne would probably f-ck with him if he actually got to meet him. Turk reiterated the point that Lil Wayne allegedly is in his own world and that he really doesn’t “be knowing” about a lot of things that are going on.
Okay well now I need to hear a public apology from Kodak because he was tripping.Tweet
