Fade Magnet XXXTentacion Claims Migos Jumped Him, Twitter Goes In

XXXTentacion is back on the struggle stallion once more, this time alleging that he caught a bad one in Los Angeles. According to the embattled Florida rapper, Atlanta trio Migos allegedly put the hands on him and even pulled a gun on him.

TMZ reports:

XXXTentacion says he got jumped by Migos in L.A. — and even posted video of what appears to be one of its members walking away from the fight … plus Cardi B’s photo.

X went on an Instagram rant Monday claiming he’d just been jumped by the rap trio, adding they allegedly pulled a gun on him during the scuffle.

He then deleted almost every post from his IG page and left only 2 — one was a video of what he claims is Takeoff walking away from the brawl, and the other was a portrait of Offset’s fiancee, Cardi B.

The Florida fade magnet hasn’t had a banner 2017, and this just adds to his collection of Ls. Twitter, naturally, exhibited no hint of chill and went in for the kill with relentless slander. We’ve caught the best we could find below and on the following pages.

Don’t Touch My Hair! Lupita Nyong’o Calls Out Magazine For Editing Her Edges And Photoshopping Her A Fade

Lupita Nyong’o Calls Out Magazine For Editing Her Hair

Just like Solange, Lupita isn’t here for magazines deciding what Black hair “should” look like.

The award-winning actress did a recent cover shoot for Grazia magazine, with her curls pulled back into a puff-ponytail. However come print time, her wavy roots had been photoshopped smooth, and for whatever reason, the true length of her hair had been edited away.

Lupita wasn’t shy about showing the source shots, and letting the mag know she didn’t appreciate them reimagining what her hair looked like…

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh

SMH, when will these mags just let Black hair be?



Chief Keef Fade Victim Ramsay Tha Great Sentenced To 10 Years For Pimping

Ramsay tha Great was making cash pimping women he met on the Internet. The Los Angeles producer’s scheme has now led to a 10-year jail sentence. 

No one said pimpin’ was easy, or legal (in L.A.).

Reports CBS Los Angeles:

Brandon Christopher Ramsay, aka Ramsay Tha Great, made thousands of dollars a week pimping out women in Orange County, whom he found on social media sites, the district attorney alleged.

They said Ramsay used his influence and social media presence to coax four Los Angeles women into prostituting themselves for him.

The 25-year-old can be seen posing with stacks of $ 100 bills on his artist Facebook page.

One woman who thought she was Ramsay’s girlfriend said the 25-year-old threatened her with a gun when she said she wanted to quit. Ramsay is said to have demanded she make $ 1,000 a day.

Guess the rap game proper wasn’t paying the bills.

Yes, this is the same Ramsay who caught a proper fade at the hands of Chief Keef and got robbed, too, allegedly.

Ramsay pleaded guilty to charges including pimping and pandering, human trafficking, and assault with a firearm. The judge hit him with a 10-year sentence.

The struggle is real.

Drunk White UM Fan Caught Fade Of The Decade After Getting Tossed

A woman who was apparently inebriated at a University of Miami football contest between Virginia Tech had to be ousted from the Hard Rock Stadium by four officers. The woman, who was white, struck the Black officer after an initial failed attempt, with the officer striking back with his arm with such force that it appeared to knock the woman unconscious.

Local10.com reports:

The Miami-Dade Police Department is investigating a violent exchange between a police officer and a University of Miami football fan who was removed from Hard Rock Stadium Saturday night.

Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said MDPD received a copy of the video and the investigation of the incident in Miami Gardens was ongoing Saturday morning.

The 14-second video shared late Saturday night on Bartstool UMiami’s social media accounts shows three male police officers and a female police officer pick up a woman who was wearing a UM T-shirt.

The woman’s first attempt to hit the officer, who was holding her right leg, failed. She was able to slap him in the face during her second attempt, and the officer struck back with his right arm, as he was using his left to hold her leg.

Reactions to the viral video have been mixed with some observers stating she was resisting arrest. Others are highlighting the racial ramifications as well, but it’s been quiet on the Blue Lives Matter side of things. There is also some chatter that if race roles were reversed, the outcry would be startling.

A Warning: the clip showing the blow is quite violent so proceed cautiously when viewing.

Hey @ndbarstool even she’s better than Rudy

Princess Nokia Says She Delivered Hot Soup Fade To L Train Racist

Princess Nokia might the heroine America needs right now, this after the Bronx rapper has come forth to say she is the person who threw hot soup to a man hurling racist slurs on an MTA train. Using Twitter to retell her side of things, Princess Nokia also issued a challenge to other racists who might be itching for a fade appointment.

“When I slapped him he called me a n*gger, and when I did all my brothers on the train came to my side and held my hand and comforted me,” Nokia wrote via Twitter regarding the incident that took place last Saturday. She continued with, “[A]lthough painful and humiliating we stood together and kicked this disgusting racist off the train so we could ride in peace away from him.”

Nokia, perhaps realizing the gravity of her actions and what it represented on a larger scale, spoke about how she doesn’t intend to mute her fight against injustice.

“The important matter is: I will do anything to defend the honor of my brothers and sisters,” Nokia, added by using the Black Lives Matter hashtag, then concluded with, “But I be damned if i let some drunk bigot call a group of young teenage boys racist names and allow him to get away with it.”

Right on.

Peep the tweets from Princess Nokia regarding the hot soup L Train fade below and on the flip.

Drake’s Security Almost Blessed Singer Shawn Mendes With A Fade [VIDEO]

Overzealous fans and music industry associates take note—Drake’s people are not playing when it comes to his safety. Shawn Mendes almost caught a major fade from Drizzy’s bodyguard.

On a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Pop crooner told a cautionary tale of how he went up to the 6 God and almost got manhandled by security at a recent concert both attended.

“I’m watching The Weeknd and we’re up on this riser and Drake’s also there watching the show with like another few artists and stuff. I go over like, ‘Oh, that’s Drake. I’ll go say hi. He must remember me from previous experiences like twice.’”

But then life came at Mendes pretty fast.

“So I go over to touch his side and his 6’6,” 300-pound security guard. Next thing I know, I’m in the middle of The Weeknd’s show with like my arm hooked behind my back. Drake’s security guard just has me completely at his mercy. And I’m like, ‘Oh no!” he admitted.

Thankfully the incident was in Drake’s eyesight and the “Gyalchester” rapper intervened thus saving his fellow Canadian. “I see Drake look over and in my eyes, it was like, ‘Please help me. Please, Drake.’ In that moment, if he didn’t remember who I was, I probably would have… I don’t know what I would have done” Shawn said.

You can see his Jimmy Fallon appearance in all its glory below.

Famed Gamer PewDiePie On Fade Watch After Blurting N-Word Online

PewDiePie, a popular live gamer who runs a highly-viewed YouTube channel, has found himself once again the focus of controversy. The native of Sweden blurted out the n-word with the hard “r” over the weekend during a live stream, adding himself once more to the on sight fade watch for being a spineless racist masking his harsh words as jokes.

Born Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, the 27-year-old YouTube “star” boasts over 57 million subscribers on his channel and well over 14 billion plays. A figure in the “Let’s Play” movement, PewDiePie’s gaming exploits, and over-the-top humor has made him something of a cult star in that select circle.

During a broadcast, while playing PlayerUnknown’s Battleground, an opponent was assaulting him with shots which Kjellberg replied online with, “What a f—–ng n—-r sorry, but what the f–k.”

Kjellberg then said, “I don’t mean that in a bad way.”


This latest offensive slip comes after PewDiePie lost contracts with Disney’s Maker Studios and YouTube after urging his fans to post anti-Semitic jokes and videos of his featuring reported Nazi imagery. Game makers  Campo Santo plan to file DCMA takedown requests to remove videos of Kjellberg playing its Firewatch title, according to Variety.

PewDiePie has yet to respond to the drama, but according to his Twitter feed, he’s not worried about the fade that should be raining down on him from on high soon.
