Rick Ross Reportedly “In Fear Of His Life” After Being Turned Away From Detroit Concert

Rick Ross was scheduled to headline Detroit radio station HOT 107.5′s Summer Jamz 17 last night, but he didn’t perform due to a hundred person mob that blocked him from entering the venue.

Earlier this year, Detroit’s Trick-Trick released a single entitled “No Fly Zone” that saw him and Royce Da 5’9″ attempting to enact a citywide ban on rappers who don’t collaborate with Detroit artists or contribute in some way to the city’s hip-hop scene. Now it seems like his call to action has been answered by other Motor City residents, as one hundred people congregated outside of local radio station HOT 107.5′s annual Summer Jamz concert last night, with the intent of barring headliner Rick Ross from entry.

Their plan worked, as Rozay didn’t end up performing, and HOT 107.5’s program director, Jay Hicks, was forced onstage to explain the MMG rapper’s absence to the crowd. “We had Rick Ross right outside here tonight. At about 11 o’clock, when he was pulling up to come into Chene Park, he was met by 100 individuals outside. We have tried to pull every resource together and asked him to come back. He is in fear of his life.”

Though Hicks’ claims (the last one in particular) have not been backed up by anyone from Ross’ camp, Rozay did post a tweet and accompanying picture that deemed the human barricade a “peace protest.”



Nicki Minaj Compares Upcoming “The Pink Print” Album To Jay Z’s “The Blueprint”


Promoting her upcoming album The Pink Print, Nicki Minaj spoke with DJ Semtex on BBC 1Xtra and explained her own anticipation for the body of work. While she has yet to announce an official release date, Minaj shared that she will be releasing new music in the coming weeks.

“I’m super excited about the music that I have in store for people,” she said. “I have some stuff coming out in the next couple weeks that are gonna blow people’s minds. I’m just gearing up for this album. I took my time with the album. I’ve never felt better to be honest.”

Speaking about the motivation behind the album’s title, Nicki Minaj started by mentioning a recent step away from the industry.

“I think sometimes it’s good to deactivate yourself from the machine of the industry,” she said. “I think I did that. I got enough time to really just focus and get a new perspective on who I was in relation to the industry, in relation to rap, and all of that. I am a lot more confident. This album that I’m working on is called The Pink Print. Of course I named it The Pink Print and of course Jay has had his Blueprint albums. That’s what I feel like this album is gonna be. I really feel like this album will be a blueprint for female rappers to come. That alone should tell you how confident I am about the music.”

While on the show, the Pink Friday rapper also shared coming together with Lil Herb for the original version of “Chi-Raq.”

“I contacted Lil Herb from Chicago,” she said. “He had a record out that was doing that flow that he’s doing on the hook. I was feeling the flow that he did on that song. We did an original song. That ‘Chi-Raq’ beat is my beat. Boi-1da did that beat for me and I rapped on it and then I called Lil Herb like, ‘Yo, I’m feeling you. I love your style. I love your movement. Come down to L.A. and lay a new verse on this song.’

“I knew the shit was hot,” she added. “I knew the beat was hot…I didn’t really expect that many—I’m telling you, a lot of people remade that song. Like people did videos to that song. We don’t even have a video to that, and I had the original version.”

“The Game bodied it,” Minaj said of her favorite remix. “He kinda surprised me. That was one of the most lyrical Game verses I heard in years. I didn’t really expect him to go that crazy on it. That was one that really stood out to me. He was mad. Somebody made him mad or something.”

Later in the interview, Nicki Minaj spoke on her working relationship with Lil Wayne and their continued chemistry.

“One of the biggest motivators in my career was just watching Wayne’s work ethic when I first came in the game,” she said. “I would see him go so hard, and do so many features, and so many mixtapes, and do so many albums. Whether he and I are on a song or not, we always have this insane connection that I can’t explain…You gotta play that ‘Sweet Dreams’ Beyonce freestyle, you gotta play when me and Wayne did ‘Go Hard.’ People need to be reminded that that has not been done since…We were like animated superheroes. When we were doing that, it was not being done, and it has not been done since.”

She made this declaration while in an online interview with HVP. Audu, whose first love is acting, said, “ I have people I admire their acting skills and crave to work with. But I don’t have a crush on anyone and I am hardly attracted to fellow actors.”
The Edo State-born actress believe that her veering into acting was accidental. According to her, “I didn’t believe I could end up as an actress because I wasn’t so bold to stand and express myself if front of people. But I wished I could and was so happy when I was bold enough to take the step out.”
Describing her ideal man as one that “listens and motivates me, makes me laugh, brings out the best in me, a hardworking, and understanding man,” Audu said, even though she is still climbing the ladder of success in her chosen profession, she’s indeed living out her dreams.
Audu is combination of brain and beauty. Apart from acting, she’s also a model, blogger, voice-over artiste and a foodie as she likes to call herself. She has been around for quite sometime. A holder of B.A degree in French and Masters in Public and International Affairs, the actress admits that her heart is with the arts.

Kim Kardashian is a ‘strict mum’

Los Angeles – Kim Kardashian is a “strict mother”.

The 33-year-old reality TV star has certain routines she likes her 12-month-old daughter North, whom she has with her husband Kanye West, to follow every day and she doesn’t allow her to sleep in their bed, unlike her sister Kourtney and partner Scott Disick do with their kids Mason, four, and Penelope, 23 months.

She explained: “I am a strict mother. I’m really fun and playful, but I’m really strict on nap time, and sleeping in her own crib.

“Like Kourtney’s style is where her kids sleep in bed with her, so especially with the third baby coming – they’re going to need a bigger bed or they’re going to need some other rules.

“And maybe on weekends, North will come and sleep in the bed with us. But … I’m not crazy strict.”

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty admits she and Kanye, 37, who married in Italy last month, are planning to have at least one more child as they’d like to have a little sibling for North.

Asked whether she would like a brother or sister for North, Kim told the MailOnline: “I hope so.

“I grew up with a lot of siblings so I know what that’s like. I don’t know if I would really follow in my mum’s footsteps and have six; that’s a little crazy. I don’t know how they did it – they were in their 20s and they weren’t really thinking right! I like a big family and I would definitely like one more and see how that goes.”
