MGK’s Bodyguards beat the sh-t out of some Actor for calling him a Kitty Kat


Machine Gun Kelly’s bodyguards beat the bloody hell out of an actor who called out the rapper over the blood feud with Eminem … TMZ has learned.

The violence started late Friday night in Atlanta … cops say MGK and his crew were in a restaurant bar when the actor named Gabriel “G-Rod” Rodriguez walked up to him with his phone out and started recording. In the video, obtained by TMZ, you see G-Rod point at MGK and say, “I’m gonna say it because it has to be said, you’re a pus*y for going for family!” G-Rod tells us he was especially upset because he’s a husband and father of 3 kids.

G-Rod was pissed at Kelly for his beef with Eminem — which started when Kelly said Em’s then-teenaged daughter, Hailie, is hot.

In the video, MGK appears to shove G-Rod and turn the phone away. The video stops there, but G-Rod says that’s when 5 of MGK’s bodyguards swooped in and, as he puts it, MGK suddenly got tough and started challenging him. G-Rod claims Kelly shoved him. He says the bar manager immediately sided with the celebrity … and kicked out G-Rod.

 

 

G-Rod says 2 hours later he was walking toward a Hampton’s Inn — across the street from the bar — when he noticed MGK and his crew hanging outside their tour bus. When they started barking at each other an Atlanta PD officer stepped in to cool things down, but G-Rod says MGK went off … calling the cop a “pus*y” and “pig.”

G-Rod says the officer did nothing in response — which pissed of G-Rod. He told us if a black or Latino person had said that to a cop … they’d immediately be tased or worse.

G-Rod says he went into the hotel lobby and MGK continued jawing at him … with all his bodyguards standing around him. G-Rod, who’s a pretty big dude, says he told them he’d fight each of them — one at a time — if they wanted a fight. Instead, he says the bodyguards all jumped him at once.

According to cops, who’ve seen surveillance video, one guard body slammed G-Rod and then 3 others started punching and kicking him in the face. G-Rod — who’s had roles in “Ozark,” “Power” and “NCIS: New Orleans” — says MGK wasn’t involved at that point, he just let his bodyguards get physical.

G-Rod tells TMZ he’s already hired a lawyer and intends to file a lawsuit against MGK, however, he adds, “I will drop the lawsuit if we both sign waivers and meet in an octagon and go man-to-man without goons or weapons.”

Police are investigating, and G-Rod is at an ER getting treatment for severe facial injuries

Scarface Battling Lung Cancer


Houston Rapper Diagnosed With Cancer

Scarface is fighting for his life against an aggressive and deadly form of cancer, BOSSIP has learned.

The veteran Houston rapper is battling lung cancer after years of “chain-smoking” cigarettes and marijuana, according to a source close to the star.

Scarface, whose real name is Brad T. Jordan, has been receiving treatment for the lung disease in his native Houston at Memorial Hermann Medical Center, which is renown for exceptional oncological care, the source said.

We’re told his condition has been up and down, and he had a close call a few months ago, telephoning a loved one in tears to complain that he was having trouble breathing and he believed it was the end.

However, the former “Geto Boys” member was able to bounce back and has booked a number of performances and other engagements since. He is now set to be in New York City this weekend for a show at the Source360 Conference and Festival in Brooklyn.

Scarface has not commented on the diagnosis, and we’ve also repeatedly reached out to his lawyer for comment.

Lung cancer disproportionately impacts the African-American community compared with other ethnic groups, and African-Americans are more likely to develop the disease and die from it, according to the American Lung Association

Rest in Heaven Mac Miller


“To everyone who sell me drugs / Don’t mix it with that bulls–t / I’m hoping not to join the 27 club / Just want the coke dealer house with the velvet rug / F–k the world, there’s no one else but us.” – “Brand Name” Mac Miller

Sadly, Mac is gone….way too soon…Mac was just 26…

Though Mac Miller was known to many as the former boyfriend of Ariana Grande, the late rapper was a prolific artist who spent a decade crafting his artform.

But his immense talent also came with great struggles and, on Friday, the 26-year-old died of an apparent drug overdose.

The young artist, who referred to himself as “the coolest Jewish rapper,” was pronounced dead at 11:51 a.m. at his Studio City, California, home, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner confirmed in a statement to PEOPLE. A cause of death is yet to be determined, but a source tells PEOPLE the rapper had gone into cardiac arrest after appearing to suffer a drug overdose.

The rapper was born in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. His mother, a photographer named Karen Meyers is Jewish, while his father Mark McCormick, an architect, is Christian.

Miller’s love for music began at an early age and he taught himself to play numerous instruments in grade school before turning his attention to rapping. “Once I hit 15, I got real serious about it and it changed my life completely,” Miller told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 2010.

He released his first mixtape But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy in 2007 under the name EZ Mac.

Miller, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick, then dropped The Jukebox, another mixtape, in 2009. “I was still trying to figure out who I was at this point,” Miller told Post-Gazette about his first two projects. “When you’re a young kid and you’re trying to rap you listen to the radio and you don’t know what you want to talk about. I didn’t know what I wanted to talk about. I just wanted to tell people I could rap.”

After releasing his next two mixtapes K.I.D.S. and The High Life and embarking on a college tour, Miller went on tour with Wiz Khalifa in 2012.

In total, Miller has released five albums: Blue Slide Park (2011), Watching Movies with the Sound Off (2013), GO:OD AM (2015), The Divine Feminine (2016) and Swimming (2018).

Machine Gun Kelly “Rap Devil” (Eminem Diss)


Em just got murdered….

Man bolted toward Jay-Z and Beyoncé at their Atlanta show. (He didn’t get far.)


Someone just had to spoil the party.

The Beyoncé/Jay-Z spectacle that is “On the Run II” was wrapping up its Saturday night stop in Atlanta when a man ran up on stage and bolted after the couple.

He didn’t get far, and everyone’s fine. But it did make for a “what just happened?” moment to close out a show that already had plenty of “what just happened?” moments (albeit of the good kind).

Here’s what happened:

The Carters were walking off the stage after tag-teaming through two and a half hours of their respective back catalogs at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The last few strains of “Apes**t” were closing out the show with a bevy of dancers doing their thing.

A man in a white jersey jumped on stage and made a beeline toward the couple.

For a nanosecond, the dancers looked at one another. Then they sprinted into action, as did the security team.

You can see it unfold from this fan-shot angle:

Later, the tour issued a statement recounting the whole thing. The bottom line: No one’s hurt and the Carters have chosen not to press charges.

“At the end of last night’s show, we had an intoxicated male enter the stage. At this point, we had a controlled evacuation of all crew on the stage in order to safely defuse the situation. We are happy to confirm that nobody was hurt during the incident, and Mr. & Mrs. Carter are choosing not to press charges against the individual.

“We would like to thank the hard work of our tour security who effectively restrained the individual and all of our dancers and team who handled the situation so professionally.

“Mr. & Mrs. Carter look forward to seeing you all tomorrow in Atlanta.”

Sunday is night two of the spectacle in Atlanta. And what a spectacle it is.

It started with “This. Is. Real. Life” emblazoned on gigantic screens as Jay-Z and Beyoncé took the stage and turned the private turmoils of their marriage into public art. The set list lifted heavily from the paroxysm of Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” and the penance of Jay-Z’s “4:44.” It was carefully curated and exquisitely choreographed.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Faces Up to 3 Years In Prison & Sex Offender Registration


Fresh off the success of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Hot 100 hit “FEFE” featuring Nicki Minaj, the controversial rapper is feeling the heat from the New York District Attorney.

The D.A. is recommending he serve a stint of one to three years in state prison and register as a sex offender for violating his plea agreement, The Blast reports. A letter from Manhattan’s D.A. Office outlines the reasoning behind their decision.

“Defendant has had over two years to demonstrate to this Court that the role he played in the sexual exploitation of a thirteen-year-old child was an aberration in his otherwise law-abiding life,” the letter reads. “He has failed to do so.”

The rainbow color-haired artist previously pled guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance in 2015. In exchange for his guilty plea, sentencing was to be deferred for two years. This made him eligible for Youthful Offender adjudication, which would seal his criminal record. All he needed to do was stay out of trouble.

6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, has struggled to satisfy the court’s demands though. He’s facing assault charges in Houston for allegedly choking 16-year-old fan in January. In May, he was arrested for driving on a suspended license and accused of assaulting a police officer, which he denies. Charges in the latter case have since reduced to a misdemeanor.

Sentencing for 6ix9ine is scheduled to take place on October 2.
