TMZ got a copy of Shia's latest verse, which will air Monday afternoon on Power 106 in L.A.
On this one Shia compares himself to Marlon Brando (bad timing, maybe) ... and really gets out on a limb, by claiming he spits better than Eminem.
He saved his best for last, calling out Yachty one more time -- and Soulja Boy, who banned Shia from Atlanta after his last verse -- saying they're "just pop and MMMbop, and obscure fruit like kumquat."
Derick Ion Almena -- the guy who ran the Oakland art commune that went up in flames -- has a rap sheet, and not just in the Bay Area ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... Almena was pulled over in L.A. County for having expired tags in March 2015, and while searching his car cops discovered he had 2 stolen license plates from vehicles registered in Oakland. We're told he was arrested and booked for petty theft.
Almena was never charged though -- the D.A. declined to prosecute.
As we reported ... he was also facing a stolen property case in Alameda County, and is currently on probation for that one.
Michael's son appeared in a Santa Monica court Monday for a hearing regarding Katherine getting a new attorney. The new lawyer is Joy Bass, and she says she's now representing Katherine in all matters related to Michael's estate.
This, apparently, was news to the Katherine's current attorney ... and sources close to the family tell TMZ Prince is in court now to tell the judge they're disputing the new attorney's claim she's now speaking for Katherine.
We got Prince and TJ Jackson (Tito's son) on the way into court and they were tight-lipped.
Marlon Brando's son is coming to his late father's defense, saying there's no way his father would ever have plotted to sexually violate his "Last Tango in Paris" co-star.
Marlon's oldest living son, Miko Brando, tackled the controversial confession from the film's director, Bernardo Bertolucci. A video recently surfaced of Bertolucci saying, in 2013, he and Brando planned at the last minute to use a stick of butter on Maria Schneider during the sex scene, and never gave her any forewarning.
In the vid, Bertolucci says he wanted an authentic reaction to rape ... not acting. Schneider, who died in 2011, has said no intercourse took place, but she was shocked and strongly objected to the way things went down.
Miko calls the story pure crap, and says, "That's not the human being" my father was. He has a theory about why Bertolucci ever made the comment.
Celebs like Jessica Chastain, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick and Ava DuVernay have expressed outrage at Brando and Bertolucci for essentially plotting to rape a woman -- but Miko's just not buying it.
Brad Pitt's child custody arrangement with Angelina Jolie is in the hands of one man ... according to docs filed by Jolie.
Right now, the exes and their 6 kids are operating under a temporary custody deal agreed upon by both sides. As we've reported ... she has primary custody and Brad gets monitored visits, but the docs Angelina filed spell out the details.
According to the docs ... when and how Brad sees the children is determined by a psychologist who specializes in child custody issues. The deal says, the "frequency and conditions of the therapeutic visitation shall be determined by Ian Russ, Ph.D." Brad and Angie also must participate in group therapy sessions with the kids.
The terms of this deal must stay in place until there's a court order, or both parents agree to change it.
Additionally, the docs say Brad will submit to random drug and alcohol tests at least 4 times per month.
Pitt and Jolie made this arrangement in October, while Brad was still under investigation by the DCFS, but as we've reported ... the agency cleared him of any wrongdoing a month ago.
Jolie's filing essentially memorializes the temporary deal with the court. The judge signed it on Friday.
Matt Barnes is adamant he did NOT start the brawl in an NYC club Monday morning -- insisting all he did was DEFEND HIMSELF after he was attacked by a violent group in the VIP section.
A rep for the NBA star tells us ... Barnes was having a good time at Avenue Nightclub with his teammate, DeMarcus Cousins, when he went to sit at his VIP booth and accidentally "butt bumped" a woman who was at the next booth over.
Barnes claims the woman reacted by slapping him in the face, hard -- and that's when all hell broke loose.
Barnes claims the woman's crew -- which included several men -- jumped in and began to get violent. Barnes was knocked to the ground in the melee and one of the men began to choke him.
We're told Barnes got physical in an effort to protect himself. Cousins also jumped in to defend Barnes. In footage shot moments after the fight, Cousins references Barnes getting choked.
Barnes feels he's the victim in the incident -- and is even taking pictures of his injuries which he believes backs his side of the story.
We spoke with Barnes' attorney Alex Spiro who tells us, "We do not believe a crime was committed and are hopeful no charges will be pressed."
He also added, "we are cooperating fully with authorities."
Doc Rivers knows he crossed a line when he LOST HIS MIND on an NBA ref Tuesday night -- saying plain and simple ... he shouldn't have acted that way.
The outburst went viral -- Clippers players had to restrain Doc from going after ref Ken Mauer when he was issued a technical foul for talking to another ref during the 1st overtime period against the Nets.
"Yeah, you don't act like that," Doc told us at Catch in West Hollywood this weekend ... "You should get thrown out for that."
Don't worry ... Doc says he's cool with Mauer too -- calling him a good guy.
There's more ... we also asked Rivers about certain NBA players saying they would boycott a White House championship visit during Trump's administration. It's clear he's NOT on board with that.
Add another boxer to the list of people calling out Conor McGregor ...
This time, it's "Sugar" Shane Mosley saying the UFC star wouldn't have a scintilla of a chance if the two stepped inside of a boxing ring.
Mosley admits McGregor would have the upper hand in an MMA fight -- but Shane says he's too smart to put himself in that situation ... and knows exactly what happens when combat fighters try to expand outside of their sport.
Fetty Wap remembers his struggling days, and while he avoided tragedy like the Oakland fire -- he knows exactly how up and coming acts can fall victim to disastrous venues.
Fetty told us all the safety measures his crew takes when he performs -- he admits there are a lot because he has one eye. It's all good now, but he hasn't forgotten what it was like in his early days.
He has some advice for more established acts -- don't forget the little people on your way up the ladder. Clearly, the deadly fire during an EDM rave has him thinking.
