Meek Mill has not only been bodied by a singing rapper, but also by a rapper that will soon have his own lipstick via Tom Ford. According to Buzzfeed the lipstick will be named after Drake and will be available here for $52.

The lipstick will reportedly be released on October 30th– just a few days after Drizzy’s birthday–as apart of Ford’s Lips & Boys collection.

If Drake had any input in the color choice, then he definitely likes his women with a darker lip because the shade of the lipstick will be a metallic burgundy.

Looks like 2015 really is a time to be alive. Will you be shelling out $52 to have Drake on your lips?

CelebriTEA: Family Matters Tour

Y’all already know I go up for Chance the Rapper and naturally, I had tickets to his Family Matters Tour. His second show of the tour was last night in St. Louis at the Pageant and it was lit.

Opening the show was Towkio and I’m grown enough to admit I hadn’t heard much of his music beforehand. However, his energy was so contagious I had to look up some of his projects immediately after the concert. ]

Next, was DRAM – naturally everyone was waiting for his hit single “Cha-Cha” but in the true spirit of performance and artistry he performed some of his just as dope but lesser known tracks in a way that engaged the crowd and solidified our fandom. And of course, he closed with Cha-Cha during which I was able to get a good two step in Jesus’ name.

Up next, Metro Boomin who is the record producer behind plenty of well-known jams like Dead Presidents by Ty Dolla $ign, Tuesday by ILOVEMAKONNEN, and Jump out the Face by Meek Mill.

When Chance finally came out not only was the crowd hyped but you could tell Chance was ready to give a great show. With cohesive lights and visuals and the accompaniment of Donnie Trumper and the Social Experiment he performed hits from #10Day and Acid Rap in a way that was both entertaining and deeply personal. He closed the concert with “Wonderful Everyday” a rendition of the children’s show “Arthur” repeating the line “Everyday…could be wonderful.”

And last night, everyone in the crowd believed it could be.

CelebriTEA: I Forgot to Give Myself Credit

I’m going to go ahead and give myself a point. When I talked about upcoming music I said “what a time to be alive” in a few years when I’m sipping a martini and living with the beautiful people I’m going to give myself the credit for the title of Drake and Future’s new album.
Let’s give a round of applause for Future, he’s managed to make most of us forget that he really is trifling for the situation with Ciara. Released DS2 and now this?
And Aubrey! Let’s go ahead and say Drake won this year. 2015 is poppin’ for Drake, to be sure. He drags Meek Mill, releases an album, and we’re still waiting on Views from the Six. His music is going to be the soundtrack of my Senior year. And I’m not mad about it at all.
Were not your hearts filled? What are some of your favorite tracks from the album? What projects are you looking forward to?
And ain’t Frank Ocean promise us an album like…months ago?

Pour The Honey: One Beef Turns Into Two Beefs?

At this point, everyone is aware of the ongoing beef between Drake and Meek Mill. Not only did Meek start and lose this beef, but he’s currently in the process of being investigated by the WWE for use of their theme song in his lack luster Drake diss track- but that’s another story.

In Meek’s diss track, “Wanna Know,” he referenced Ja Rule and 50 Cent’s decade old beef: “Real ni**as back in style / This sh*t is lit / This that Ja Rule sh*t and 50 Cent.”

Clearly Ja Rule listened to the song because he took to Instagram and posted a picture with the caption “Which one supposed to be Ja Rule??? #Over30millionrecordsSOLD #IwriteallmyS–t #MeekvsDrake.”

He didn’t just keep his comments on Instagram, he took to Twitter to clarify his comments and to squash any belief that there were any comparisons to his and 50 Cent’s beef and Drake and Meek’s.

If we know anything about Tyler Petty, I mean 50 Cent, then we know that he wouldn’t let his name come up in a conversation without saying something himself. Later the same day that Ja Rule took to Twitter, 50 Cent posted a tweet–that he later deleted–that read “Oh I herd what you said on the power 105 morning show, you fu**ing punk. Everybody know I put your ass to sleep.” 50 was referring to a radio interview that Ja did for “The Breakfast Club” back in 2014 where he talked about a brawl between the two of them.

Ja Rule didn’t let that slide, he fired back via Instagram, writing, “How u doin… 😂😂😂 this ho has a lot of balls!!! Unfortunately she also has a p**sy shut up before somebody put a d*ck in ya mouth.”

The timing of this beef is quite interesting considering that Ja Rule has a new song called “Wake Me Up” as well as an MTV docu-series, “Follow the Rules,” which premieres Oct. 26. Sound off below, is this for publicity or is this for real?

CelebriTEA: The Dragging

Can we all just take a moment of silence for Meek Mill and his career?

I tried to hold off on the updates because I figured yall, like myself, saw nothing but memes and shade for about three days on twitter and Instagram. But here’s a cute little update for those of us who missed some stuff while we were at work/minding our business/not beefing with rappers on the internet.

After Meek Mill came for Drake there was an eerie silence from Drake’s side. It seemed for a moment, Drake would take the high road and wait to throw some carefully crafted shade at Meek on some upcoming tracks.

But, oh, Aubrey wasn’t having it.

Instead, Drake released diss track after diss track. “Charged Up” which took playful shots at Meek Mill with lines about Meek’s career, Drake’s success, and a little nod towards his relationship with Nicki.

Meek Mill hopped back on social networks (his poor publicist) calling the track soft but wasn’t even slightly as vocal as he was in the days leading up.

Drake dropped another diss called “Back to Back” and arrived at OVO fest wearing a “Free Meek Mill” t-shirt. During his performance he had memes of Meek Mill running in the background  and even dropped a few lines from “3Peat.”

In short, Drake has dragged Meek Mill and I’ve been so here for it.

In an unrelated note, Safaree (Nicki’s ex) dropped a diss. I’m not sure who invited him to speak. But the link is below in case you need a laugh.

Oh, and before I forget – Meek dropped a response track after Drake’s first two disses. But…he could have kept that too.

What do yall think of the drama? Did Meek Mill underestimate Drake? How much longer do you think Nicki and Meek Mill will be together? Who knew Drake could be this shady?!

The social media beef between Drake and Meek Mill, already has fans sipping their tea. But it looks like Meek is stirring up trouble in the city of Detroit.

The Philly rapper is now being accused of plagiarizing a track from Detroit’s very own, Lil George.

Oh no! This can’t be true, right?

Back in October, 17 year old Lil George dropped his single-“I Got the Sauce.” The local artist, recieved a lot of respect and attention from his hometown.

Meanwhile, Meek Mill’s newest project – Dreams Worth More than Money – is now rising on the billboard charts. However, one particular track – “I Got the Jucie”- sounds extremely familiar.

According to TMZ, Lil George does believe Meek was inspired by “I Got the Sauce ” to create the hook on “I Got the Juice.” Get this,  Lil George isn’t seeking a check, he simply wants to be acknowledged. Seeing how Meek Mill is claiming to have never heard of Lil George or  “I Got the Sauce” he just might not get the credit he is looking for.

Tell us what you think? Did Meek get “inspired” By Lil George or is it just a very ironic situation?

Twitter was jumping last night.

In case you missed it, the VMA nominee list was released and Nicki Minaj received a little love for “Anaconda” but felt a little slighted in the overall nominations. Nicki felt that her work didn’t receive the credit it deserved  and suggested that her videos would have been better received if they featured slimmer, perhaps Eurocentric, bodies.

nickiGiven the other nominees in that particular category it was kind of clear Nicki was alluding to Taylor Swift. Taylor reached for her @ button and shared disappointment in Nicki for trying to pit female artists against each other going so far as to invite Nicki up on stage…

*cackles* Girl, what?

It looks like Taylor missed the point and Nicki is having a tough week. I wonder how many times Meek has called Nicki this morning?

Now we all know that nothing about Hollywood (or Houstatlantavegas) is what it seems – it’s all lies and lacefronts. But Meek Mill decided last night he was going to let it all hang out. He tore Drake apart and blasted him for having a ghostwriter. Allegedly, Meek and his people found out that Drake had a ghostwriter after recording RICO and Meek claims he wouldn’t have let the song get out if he knew Drake wasn’t the authour. Meek went on to claim Drake never promoted Meek’s music because Meek knew Drake was a fake.

Pardon?

If that’s the case – why is Meek all of a sudden putting Drake out there? Don’t most artists have ghostwriters? If memory serves, both Drake and Meek have credits on their albums for other people. Some suggest Meek may have gotten the truth about Nicki and Drake’s past and took to Twitter in a fit. Others speculate that Meek just has a bone to pick with the industry in general.

Rick Ross tweeted that Drake was better than Meek but soon deleted his tweet.

Let this be a reminder that celebrities are just your average folks with a lot more money and more time to kill.

I’m off to listen to some Kendrick Lamar.

Nicki Minaj’s Ex Safaree Samuels Releasing A Shady Diss Single About Nicki

Ex means: “Thanks for the EXperience. Our time has EXpired. Now EXit out of my life!”

Nicki Minaj’s heart-broken ex , Safaree Samuels, seems to have a different thought about what an Ex is.

Samuels is set to release his new single “Love The Most” this week where he dishes what happened between him and the doll, Nicki.

“Did the good out weigh the bad, or did the bad out weigh the good?” Safaree begins by asking. “You ain’t do it all alone. We took ourselves up out the hood,” Safaree raps in his song as he continuously reminding Nicki of the past.

So far everything seems cool, but as the song continues he just starts to lay out every incident that these two faced together. Asking Nicki,  “You remember what you told me when you wasn’t on those pills?”

Woah..Stop the press! Is he insinuating  that Nicki used to pop pills? SHADY  MUCH!

Of course, Safaree’s heartbroken rant didn’t stop there, as he mentioned her kissing Naz, her new fling with new bay Meek Mill, her refusal to carry his child, and even her alleged cheating.

“Had to watch you kiss Nas and pretend it’s all cool. Inside I was feeling like a motha f–king fool.” Is this the way 12 years should end?

Now if that ain’t just down right dirty! It’s a mere cry for attention. Have you ever made a point to publicly embarrass an EX? Share below.

The gang down at TMZ share a sample of the song. Check it out:
