Mariah Carey

Rips Nick Cannon

You're Broke and Alone!

30 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF



Forget Jay Z, Dr. Dre and Eminem ... the new king of diss rap is now ... Mariah Carey!!!

Mimi's new song "Infinity" just dropped and she absolutely tears Nick Cannon apart.  

Talkin' 'bout you're mad
Could it be that you just lost the best you've ever had

His fame:

Boy you actin' so corny like Fritos
Wouldn’t have none of that without me, though

And his money:

Is it lack of ice got you so cold?
Have you ever felt this on your own?
Why you tryin' to play like you’re so grown?
Everything you own boy you still owe 

It wasn't long ago that Nick was leaving the door open for reconciliation ... but this song is the equivalent of her slamming that door in his face. And dead bolting it. And putting on the chain.

breaking news

Things just went NUCLEAR between heavyweight boxing champ Deontay Wilder and former champ Shannon Briggs -- with the two TEARING INTO EACH OTHER in the middle of NYC. 

The boxers were at the weigh in for the Wladimir Klitschko vs. Bryant Jennings fight when they started talkin' smack to each other. 

Shannon called Deontay a phony champion ... "they GAVE you that belt."  And Deontay essentially called Shannon a pathetic has-been.

The whole exchange was captured on video by ANOTHER boxing champ, Lennox Lewis -- who posted the footage on Twitter. 

Briggs has been trying to lock up a fight with Klitschko ... but now, his focus may be changing. 

Stay tuned ...

Ariana Grande

Big Sean's 'Billion Dollar P***y' Lyric

The Final Straw

4/24/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande Big Sean Broke Up Ariana Grande has a big problem with boyfriends screaming from the mountaintops that she has a priceless p***y ... which is why she says she called it quits with Big Sean.

Sources connected with Ariana tell us ... the last straw was when Sean dropped his track, "Stay Down," in which he raps:

I ain't even gonna lie, I got a million dollar chick
With a billion dollar p****y
Every time I c*m, I swear to God I feel like I be rich

We're told Ariana felt humiliated because Sean was treating her like a piece of meat. Ariana's grandmother came to her and asked about the lyrics, which was especially embarrassing.

But there was plenty of tension leading up to the song. Sean claims she made him pay for all sorts of extravagances. But our Ariana sources say SHE is the one who foot most of the bills, including vacations and private flights.

As we reported, Sean complained that Ariana didn't show up for his big House of Blues performance in February because she selfishly cared more about her Grammy's performance the following day.  

But our Ariana sources say it was Sean who was self-absorbed. Ariana's Grammy performance was live and during the day on Saturday when she rehearsed her voice was strained and her vocal coach ordered her not to even speak for the rest of the day, and Sean got pissed.

As for Sean saying Ariana set up the Bieber stage grab to humiliate her, Ariana says it's total B.S. ... they were already broken up and she did NOT ask Bieber to engage in a stunt.  And she says Sean never even brought it up.

Tyga

Takes High Road

After Blac Chyna Claims He Wants Her Back

4/24/2015 6:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0423_blac_chyna_tyga_texts-tmzWe expected Tyga to go on a profanity-laced tirade after his ex, Blac Chyna put his texts to her on Instagram for the world to see -- but instead he's taking a low-key approach ... at least for now.

Blac Chyna posting the texts was her going nuclear in her war with Kylie Jenner -- but Tyga is clearly a casualty too. In the messages, Tyga (who is apparently "Kings Father" in BC's phone) begs, "Can I just come for a lil. Just us 3. Do something or spend a lil time."

The direct shot at Kylie comes when he allegedly tells BC he wants "to be a family again" -- and adds, "Want to start this friendship. Relationship."

Tyga responded early Friday morning, writing, "Focus on what's real in life. And surround yourself with people that you really care about.its simple."

Not sure how long cooler heads will prevail in this mess.

Charlamagne Tha God

To Iman Shumpert:

Your New Song Is Garbage!

4/24/2015 6:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0423_Charlamagne-Tha-God_iman_shupert_tmz_gettyMTV star Charlamagne Tha God has a message for Cavs star Iman Shumpert ... back away from the mic slowly ... telling TMZ Sports he's heard Shumpert's new rap song, and it's totally garbage.

You might remember ... the last time Iman stepped in the studio it was to record a diss track aimed at the radio host, who Shumpert labeled as a hater for blasting his rap skills on "The Breakfast Club."

Shumpert's latest track -- a motivational song dedicated to the Cavaliers' playoff run called "The Offs" --  dropped yesterday and Charlamagne says although Shumpert's changed teams, his rap skills haven't changed at all.

"It's garbage. He needs to focus on his defense and not his rapping."

It gets worse ... Charlamagne says he questions Shumpert's focus -- and wants to know why he's making terrible rap songs when Cleveland is still 10 wins away from a championship.

"LeBron doesn't even tweet in the playoffs, and he's making rap songs!? The best motivation he could provide for his team is getting in the gym."

Ouch.

Jerry Heller

Suge Knight's Getting His Comeuppance and ...

Eazy-E's Loving It!

4/23/2015 9:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Never would've pegged Jerry Heller as a John Lennon fan -- but the ex rap mogul says Suge Knight's murder case is absolutely a case of instant karma.

Heller and Suge's famous rivalry goes back decades ... to when Knight allegedly forced Heller's client Eazy-E to sign over the rights to Dr. Dre.

So Heller didn't pull any punches last night outside Craig's when we asked him about Suge's murder trial. He even compared Suge's arrest to O.J. Simpson's ... calling it "payback time."

As for the upcoming NWA movie, Heller's still angry he wasn't consulted, but says he'll be watching very closely ... with someone special. This is gonna get interesting ...

Questlove

Kanye Was On Troll Patrol ...

Against Amy Schumer

4/23/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West had a great excuse for shooting Amy Schumer the death stare when she pulled her red carpet stunt on him and Kim Kardashian ... at least according to Amy's good friend, Questlove.

The Roots, and 'Tonight Show' drummer thinks Amy's pratfall at Time's Most Influential gala went right over Yeezy's head because the guy never lets his guard down in public ... and is way too worried about getting trolled.

The other reason, according to Questlove is ... Kanye thought Amy was just a random troll, and not a popular comedian -- with her own TV show, btw.

Check out the clip ... Q seems to think Amy can try this again next year -- and get different results.

Kimbo Slice

to Ken Shamrock:

I'm Gonna Break Your Jaw!

4/23/2015 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

MMA star Kimbo Slice doesn't just want to beat down Ken Shamrock -- he wants to BREAK HIS FACE ... telling TMZ Sports, "To end his career, that sounds pretty good to me."

41-year-old Kimbo and 51-year-old Shamrock are scheduled to do battle at Bellator 138 in June -- and Slice says he won't be satisfied unless he actually SHATTERS several of his opponents bones. 

"I'm gonna break his ribs and break his jaw."

In fact, Slice says he's willing to fight BARE KNUCKLE -- because he really wants to inflict as much damage as possible. 

So, why the hatred? Part of it has to do with the fact that Ken recently dissed Kimbo's legendary beard ... check out the clip.
