Tekashi69 Under Investigation In Chief Keef Shooting

6/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cops are taking a hard look at Tekashi69 to see what, if any, role he played in the events leading up to the attempted shooting of Chief Keef ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources say NYPD wants to see if Tekashi has any connection to the 2 men who shot at Keef outside the W Hotel in Times Square. 6ix9ine was in L.A. at the time of the shooting, but we're told cops want to know if he ordered the hit.

We're told NYPD has 2 suspects based on surveillance video, and know they stalked Keef the night of the shooting -- first showing up at China Chalet restaurant where Keef was hanging downtown ... then jumping into a dark-colored Ford Econovan.

After driving to midtown, we're told the suspects parked the van around the block from the W and walked to the hotel to wait for Keef. When the rapper walked outside with a friend to smoke a cig, the suspects pounced. Keef and his friend heard shots and saw a muzzle flash.

As we reported ... the shooters missed, hitting only a nearby sign. We're told the suspects fled in the van. Cops eventually found it in Brooklyn.

Tekashi's denied any involvement. We reached out to NYPD for official comment. So far ... no word back.

Post Malone Choke Slammed by The Undertaker!!!

6/17/2018 9:52 AM PDT

Post Malone might have a side gig in the WWE after a killer entrance into his concert, which featured The Undertaker and a pretty badass choke slam!

Post performed in Austin, TX Saturday night, and during the show he played a video of him bumping into Undertaker backstage. You gotta see how well they pulled off the slam. 

Later, he brought out 21 Savage for their huge hit, "Rockstar" and that's when Undertaker returned for his encore -- all 3 guys smashed the hell out of guitars. 

The only thing missing here is a Tombstone Piledriver. Post ain't ready for that just yet.

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin reunion is now complete after an intense make out session in a Brooklyn park ... which looks like it's straight out of a Nicholas Sparks movie.

Biebs and the Baldwin were overlooking the NYC's East River on Saturday while their lips got totally reacquainted up against a railing. After the PDA in BK's Domino Park they didn't exactly come up for air. They crossed the river into lower Manhattan in the evening, and kissed some more in Rockefeller Park.

All this romance tops off more than a week of non-stop contact between the former exes.

The couple spent all last weekend together in Miami, before jetting off to NYC ... where Justin's been in a ridiculously great mood.

Now we can see why.

Beyonce and Jay-Z working together is a win, win, win -- for their marriage, for their fans and for music, in general ... according to Common.

EXCLUSIVE

Pete Davidson was technically single when he started dating Ariana Grande ... TECHNICALLY, but "Friends" fans might not agree.

Sources close to the newly engaged couple say Pete and his ex-gf, Cazzie David, were "on a break" in early May -- but not necessarily broken up for good -- when his relationship with Ariana sparked. But they hit if off, and it quickly became clear Pete was serious about moving on with Ariana.

The good news -- it seems all parties involved are happy with the end result. As we reported, Cazzie's not upset or dwelling on her ex's quick rebound. Hey, if it's good enough for Ross and Rachel.

As for Ariana and Pete -- they're still in full PDA mode with Davidson posting a pic wrapped up with his fiancee, captioned ... "u know what you’d dream it be like ? it’s better than that."

u know what you’d dream it be like ? it’s better than that

21 Savage Had Every Right To Pull Out Gun ... Says Rapper BlocBoy JB

6/17/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

21 Savage was looking out for 21 Savage when he pulled out a gun at that party, so cut the kid some slack for trying to protect himself ... says his friend and fellow rapper, BlocBoy JB.

We got BlocBoy at LAX and asked him about the intense showdown at a pool party he attended in Georgia last weekend. As we reported ... a group of people crashed the shindig and rubbed Savage's crew the wrong way. It got heated, but things escalated when someone from the crashers' crew pulled out a gun, prompting Savage to do the same.

BlockBoy -- who has a track featuring Savage -- says, hell nah ... there ain't no shame in 21 arming himself. Gotta look out for No. 1.

Iman Shumpert Not Releasing Music With Teyana ... Here's Why

6/17/2018 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Iman Shumpert says he doesn't need his wife's help with his rap career ... 'cause releasing songs with Teyana Taylor will only HURT his music goals!!

The NBA star told us he takes his rap seriously ... and if he blows up 'cause of songs he released with his famous boo -- he says it just wouldn't feel right.

"I could use my wife, but it's just I would rather people connect with me in certain ways," Iman told TMZ Sports at LAX this week.

Don't get it twisted ... Shump's got songs with Teyana -- and he says he has even more with celebs that would skyrocket his career.

But building a following that doesn't revolve around hoops or the big-name people he knows is something he takes seriously.

So, sorry, Teyana ... that collab looks like it's gonna be on ice for another minute.

TMZ Sports spoke with the King of the Youth at the Fortnite Pro-Am in L.A. on Tuesday ... and naturally, we had to ask which spitter was best at the uber-famous battle royale game.

While Lil Boat didn't know who should be deemed the best, he DID know Drizzy's far from earning the title ... and has some words for the dude's game.

Sounds like Drake needs more time playing with Ninja.

Tupac's Birthday Keep Ya Head Up ... Would've Turned 47 Today

6/16/2018 10:57 AM PDT

It's Tupac Shakur's born day, and rather than dwell on the sad fact we lost him nearly 22 years ago ... we're gonna celebrate the good times he had.

Makaveli would be 47 now -- imagine that -- and would most likely be raising a glass with a lot of the people in this photo gallery. Check out Pac chilling with his closest friends ... including Treach, Bone, Thugs & Harmony and, for some reason, Carl Lewis.

Tons of California love on display here. Happy birthday, Tupac!

Beyonce & Jay-Z Blue Ivy Shows Fans How It's Done ... This is the Roc, Baby!!!

6/16/2018 9:55 AM PDT

They came for Beyonce and Jay-Z, but the fans stayed for Blue Ivy Carter, who put on a clinic in the London crowd that would make Dad very proud.

Jay and Bey played to a packed London Stadium Friday night, and, of course, their 6-year-old daughter had great seats, where she became a very cute side act ... dancing along through the show.

Blue was spotted throwing up the roc while Jigga ran through a string of his hits. It's pretty obvious she's been watching some of his old music videos, 'cause she's got it down pat.

Consider it an early Father's Day gift, Jay!

The Game Rich the Kid Needs to Be Armed ... Or He Needs to Call Me!!!

6/16/2018 7:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Game has some advice for Rich the Kid on the heels of the young rapper getting attacked in a home invasion, and it's basically ... get the strap!

Game pulled up to Catch L.A. Friday night, and when we asked him about the brutal beating Rich suffered, he dropped some philosophy on us. His first tip was for Rich -- who's recovering from the Friday morning attack -- to holla at him ... strongly suggesting he's got the 25-year-old rapper's back.

Then, Game got all 'hood Socrates on us. Using 21 Savage's recent pool party incident as an example, he said it's always best to have a gun on you. Ya gotta see how he puts it, though.

Game's POV -- "People get out of jail, people don't get out of caskets."

Peace and love, it ain't.

Robin Thicke 10 Million Reasons to Celebrate ... Plus His Smoking Hot GF!!

6/16/2018 7:58 AM PDT

Robin Thicke is grinning from ear-to-ear again, and it's not just because of April Love Geary ... he just achieved a rare feat in the music world.

Honestly, it looked like Robin Thicke circa 2013 Friday night outside Catch L.A. -- paparazzi blinded Robin and April as they walked out of dinner, and the singer's got a lot to celebrate.

"Blurred Lines" was recently certified Diamond -- which means it's pushed 10 million units sold or streamed. Only 21 other songs, IN HISTORY, have reached that mark! Some of the other artists who've achieved it include Eminem, Katy Perry, Elton John, Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Lady Gaga.

Of course, it might be a little bitter sweet ... since the lawsuit from Marvin Gaye's family cost him and Pharrell millions.

Still, it's clear from this clip, Robin was feeling good Friday night. April's see-through outfit probably didn't hurt.
