Aretha Franklin reportedly 'gravely ill,' surrounded by friends and family

Aretha Franklin is reportedly “gravely ill” and surrounded by her friends and family in Detroit... Showbiz411’s Roger Friedman reported on Sunday the Queen of Soul's family is “asking for prayers and privacy.” Franklin’s family also confirmed the news to WDIV Local 4. No further details about her health were immediately available, and reps for Franklin did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment. Franklin, who turned 76 in March, has been battling health problems for years, but continued to perform until as recently as last year. Her most recent performance was last November for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in New York. The soul singer was also forced to cancel a series of concerts last summer on “doctor’s orders.” In March, she announced she would not be at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival because her doctor recommended she take a break from touring. “Aretha Franklin has been ordered by her doctor to stay off the road and rest completely for at least the next two months,” Franklin’s management said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “She is extremely disappointed she cannot perform at this year’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival as she had expected and hoped to.” Franklin had been planning on slowing down. Last year, she announced she was preparing to retire following the release of her new album and would be reducing the number of performances she does each year.  "I must tell you, I am retiring this year," Franklin told WDIV in 2017. "This will be my last year. I will be recording, but this will be my last year in concert. This is it." Although Showbiz411 reported Franklin battled cancer in 2010, the singer has long denied she was ever diagnosed. “I don’t know where ‘pancreatic cancer’ came from,” Franklin told Access Hollywood in 2011. “I was sitting there reading the newspaper and it was saying someone in my family said that. No one in my family ever said that to anybody.”

Nicki Minaj -Coco Chanel- ft. Foxy Brown (LISTEN TO AUDIO)

Nicki Minaj and Foxy Brown are old war buddies; Foxy has come to Nicki’s defense in feuds against Lil Kim and Remy Ma, and Nicki has dubbed Foxy “the only rapper she competes with.” They’re both Trinidadian-Americans from neighboring New York boroughs who have fought the testosterone-powered rap paradigm from the inside. They team up for the first time on “Coco Chanel,” from Nicki’s new album Queen, which she unceremoniously released today a week early. Through interplay, the two formidable rappers find the space where their styles meet and complement one another, building on years of mutual admiration. They bridge a generational divide with big-city swagger and island cool. With “Coco Chanel,” they take a classic dancehall riddim and warp it into a mean-mugging rap flexer. At her most dynamic, Nicki is a puncher who lands heavier blows than anybody. She has struggled to find balance and perspective in recent years, but she summons some of that command in these verses. As the drums stagger below, she unloads stacking cadences, emphasizing what her goons are capable of: “If they take your cocaine then they making crack of it/If they grab your gold chain then they make a plaque of it,” she snarls. It’s a far cry from her more delightfully unconventional writing, without the glow of her immensely colorful personality, but shows she is still capable of stinging barbs. Not to be outdone, Foxy Brown musters some of her hardest raps in a decade, leaning into the sway of the beat and bounding forth with threats for rap rivals. The two artists play off each other well, reveling in their mutual island roots and trading lingo. It’s that chemistry that makes “Coco Chanel” stand out as the crown jewel on Queen.

How Kanye West is becoming a billionaire two years after asking Mark Zuckerberg for $53 million to pay off his debt

Kanye West is reportedly a member of the ‘three-comma’ club, joining the ranks of sister-in-law Kylie Jenner... Kanye West could be the next billionaire... West’s apparel brand Yeezy, a partnership with Adidas, is said to be valued at close to $1.5 billion, The Blast reported. The 41-year-old rapper and fashion mogul partnered with Adidas in 2013 to launch his clothing and sneaker line, Yeezy — and since he’s a majority stakeholder, his personal net worth has reportedly also reached around a billion dollars. The “Fade” rapper, who debuted his new album “Ye” in June, dropped new Yeezy merch upon the release, including a line of T-shirts and hoodies that retailed for $65 to $145. He sold $500,000 worth of merch in just 30 minutes, his former manager Scooter Braun revealed at the album listening party in Wyoming. West’s wife, reality-star entrepreneur Kim Kardashian West, hinted to fans last week during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that her husband would soon reach billionaire status. When asked if she was “almost a billionaire,” the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star replied, “I would say my husband is, so that makes me one right? Close by proximity.” Kardashian, meanwhile, is valued at $300 million, with television deals, her namesake cosmetics company, a video game and an emoji app. News of West’s net worth skyrocketing comes just two years after he revealed he was in financial trouble. The musician tweeted in 2016 that he was in $53 million in personal debt and asked for help from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg: “Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas,” he wrote. Zuckerberg didn’t respond to the plea. West also seems to be keeping up with his sister-in-law Kylie Jenner, 21, who covered the July issue of Forbes magazine as the youngest self-made billionaire with a reported net worth of $900 million. The outspoken rapper has received his fair share of criticism for his fashion line. In 2016, media skewered his “Yeezy Season 4” fashion show after they were bussed out for a viewing on New York City’s Roosevelt Island during a show started nearly two hours late. Days later while performing at Harper’s Bazaar Icons ball, he gave the fashion crowd the finger during a performance before dropping the mic. The Chicago native predicted his massive fortune earlier this year. “We have 160 positions to fill by the end of the year,” he tweeted. “Yeezy will hit a billion dollars this year. It is the 2nd fastest growing company in history. It is a unicorn on its way to becoming a decacorn.”

Rapper 6ix9ine arrested after allegedly choking 16-year-old

He was reportedly detained by police at JFK Airport... Rapper 6ix9ine (also known as Tekashi69) has been arrested by police in New York in relation to a outstanding warrant from Texas. The arrest is believed to be connected to an alleged altercation that occurred in January 2018. A 16-year-old claimed that they were choked by the musician, real name Daniel Hernandez, at Houston’s Galeria Mall. Representatives for the rapper are yet to comment on the arrest. The star’s arrest was initially reported by TMZ, before subsequent confirmation from the New York Police Department. He was reportedly detained by police at JFK Airport as he returned from his European tour. Although achieving prominence with the song ‘Gummo’, 6ix9ine’s career has been fraught with legal issues. In 2015, he pled guilty to a felony count of a use of a child in a sexual performance. The charge originated from videos that featured a 13-year-old girl. In one video, she is seen naked and sitting in the rapper’s lap. In another, Hernandez is seen  “making a thrusting motion with his pelvis and smacking her on her buttocks“ while the girl performed oral sex on another man. In May this year, he was also detained for assaulting a police officer and driving without a license.

(WATCH VIDEO) 'We got bills to pay, sweetie.' Cops forced to return stripper's $19,934 in cash

.mcclatchy-embed{position:relative;padding:40px 0 56.25%;height:0;overflow:hidden;max-width:100%}.mcclatchy-embed iframe{position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%} Miami-Dade police is on the hook for legal bills after cops illegally seized a cache of guns — and nearly $20,000 in stripper cash... The department has agreed to pay more than $3,000 to defense lawyers hired by Ras Cates, 33, and his wife, Lizmixell Batista, a 20-year-old stripper at Cheetah Gentleman's Club in Hallandale Beach. Presumably, the legal bills won't be paid in singles. Back on May 25, an officer pulled over Cates and Batista, his passenger, when their car cut off a patrol car in Miami's West Little River neighborhood. From the car, patrol officers seized six guns, three of them assault-style rifles, plus the cash, suspected marijuana oil and several bottles of powerful codeine cough syrup without a valid prescription. Miami-Dade police touted the arrest to a local TV station, showing off photos of the guns. “It’s amazing how something as simple as a traffic stop can lead us to crack a lot of cases,” a police spokesman told WFOR-CBS4. “A lot of serial killers are behind bars because of traffic stops." The couple was charged with armed drug dealing, among other felony charges. But defense lawyers immediately challenged the arrest. “What is most disturbing is that immediately following the arrest, the department went on TV and engaged in incendiary speculation without knowing the facts or even acknowledging the rampant violations of my clients’ constitutional rights," said defense attorney Jude Faccidomo. Faced with defense evidence, prosecutors moved quickly to dismiss the case. Cates told cops he legally owned the weapons, and also had a valid concealed-weapons permit. His story checked out. And body-camera footage showed that an officer, while friendly with Cates, never got permission to search the trunk but instead "commanded defendant to pop the trunk," prosecutors wrote. "Search of the trunk was illegal," prosecutor Johnathan Nobile said in a memo explaining why the state declined to press charges. Who possessed the drugs or possibly illegal codeine syrup was never clear either, prosecutors said. Neither Cates nor Batista admitted who owned the marijuana. And whether the syrup was actually codeine was also unclear — Miami-Dade police never took the liquid to the forensics lab for testing. Lawyers for Cates are still trying to get the guns back. As for the money, the bills were discovered in Batista's purse. Body-camera footage obtained by the Miami Herald showed she immediately told cops about her cash-only job. "I was supposed to go the bank to deposit the money. We got bills to pay, sweetie," she told police. The Miami-Dade police department's legal bureau, suspecting it was dope money, asked a civil-court judge to allow the department to keep the $19,934 seized in the car. The department said a Miami-Dade police dog, Roxie, alerted that the cash had been "in close proximity" to large amounts of narcotics. But at the hearing, a fellow stripper named Haley Heath testified that her friend, Batista, earned "significant cash tips" at the Cheetah club. “I felt that the glitter on the seized cash was compelling evidence, but apparently the police department disagreed," said defense lawyer Faccidomo. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Rodney Smith agreed there was no probable cause for the seizure and ordered the money returning to the couple.

Drake breaks streaming records with Scorpion

Drake has shattered streaming records with his fifth album, Scorpion... The rapper dropped the 25-track release at midnight on Thursday (28Jun18), and pulled in more than 170 million streams on Apple Music in 24 hours.

Scorpion is also on track to shatter the single-week streaming record of 431 million streams, currently held by Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys, with experts predicting Drake's album could one billion streams in its first week. The 31-year-old star celebrated the success of his new album in Miami, Florida at a party with friends and fans on Friday night. Drake showed up around 4.30am at the E11EVEN club and entered via a side door, an eyewitness told E! News. He arrived with a crew of about 50 people from his OVO record label, including fellow rapper PartyNextDoor and producer and songwriter Murda Beatz. The group drove the crowd at the club wild by throwing money into the air from their VIP table. While the DJ played the entire 25-track album, Drake did not speak to the fans or interact with anyone other than his 50-strong crew, who reportedly left after a couple of hours.

Maxine Waters responds to death threats: 'You better shoot straight'

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has addressed a series of recent death threats she said she has received, telling would-be threateners to "shoot straight" during an immigration rally on Saturday... “I know that there are those who are talking about censuring me, talking about kicking me out of Congress, talking about shooting me, talking about hanging me,” Waters told the crowd in Los Angeles. “All I have to say is this, if you shoot me you better shoot straight, there’s nothing like a wounded animal,” she added to cheers.
