Meek Mill Safaree Who? 'I Don't Even Fight'

6/25/2017 10:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill's happy to play the "who" game when it comes to questions about Safaree Samuels ... and he probably ain't squaring up with him anytime soon either.

Paps got Meek Saturday night leaving the District in Bev Hills -- rolling SUPER deep with bodyguards -- where he ducked and dodged questions about Safaree claiming Meek ordered his crew to jump him on Friday.

It's like a Dr. Seuss book here at first, but then Meek gets into Safaree's request for a 1-on-1 fight straight up. As he puts it, he's a "Don" ... and Dons don't fight. Okay, bud.

6/25/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LeBron James' bald-headed workout jam session has worked wonders for Tee Grizzley's bank account ... 'cause the Detroit rapper says his record sales have TRIPLED since LBJ posted a vid vibin' to his song.

We spoke with the 23-year-old up-and-comer about Bron's "First Day Out" shout-out just 2 days after the Cavs lost in the NBA Finals ... and T.G. says the move earned the King free concert tickets for life!!

The song already had millions of views on YouTube, but the "LeBron Effect" has brought a ton of new fans (and customers) to Grizzley's music ... and he shows us the financial impact by whippin' out $80k CASH in the middle of the airport.

The Game Meek and Safaree Should Fight ... But I'm Staying Out of It

6/24/2017 4:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Game says he's not getting involved in the beef between Nicki Minaj's exes, Meek Mill and Safaree Samuels ... but he's got no problem encouraging them to slug it out.

Game was leaving BET's Celebrity Basketball Game Saturday when we asked him about Safaree getting jumped -- allegedly by Meek's crew -- and he offered a "fair" way for them to solve their differences.

It's pretty straight forward -- and he thinks the 2 grown men can figure it out on their own.

Wonder who he's got in the fight?

Rae Sremmurd's Slim Jimmy has a road map for staying out of trouble during BET weekend ... chase the chicks and stay away from the b's.

We got Jimmy at LAX Friday and he told us his M.O. ... not just for BET weekend but all the times. Keep your head low, your nose clean and your business private.

BET Awards Last Minute Changes To Honor Prodigy

6/24/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The BET Awards will pay tribute to Prodigy, but it won't be a major spectacle -- instead, his rap partner Havoc and Lil Kim will do the honors on their own.

Sources involved with the production tell us Kim and Havoc were late adds to the show as presenters. They will also share some personal words, paying respects to the Mobb Deep rapper. 

We're told BET Awards execs scrambled to put together a tribute performance after Prodigy's death Tuesday, but it was too late. Artitsts had already signed contracts to perform at the awards, and BET didn't want to burn bridges by changing their sets, which have been planned for weeks.

We reached out to BET to see if they've been able to make any late changes, but we haven't heard back. 

Lil Yachty Hey Denzel & Oprah ... Holla and I'll Cut My Locks!

6/24/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Yachty has a message for Hollywood stars, directors and moguls -- y'all should f*** with him!

The 19-year-old rapper was at LAX when our photog asked if he'd ever change his famous hair color. Yachty, it turns out, already has an age set for when he'll not only change color, but cut his locks altogether. All he needs is the right phone call from some key players in Hollywood.

Yachty says he's got range to play all kinds of roles. It's also safe to say he's a big fan of "Moonlight."

Kid's got Oscar-worthy taste.

Dennis Rodman Uses Women's Restroom at Airport ... While Bumping Staind

6/23/2017 2:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

He's worn dresses ... maybe that's why Dennis Rodman felt so comfortable using the women's restroom at Long Beach airport Wednesday night.

A female witness tells us she noticed Dennis in the airport around 9 PM -- but couldn't believe it when she saw The Worm walk straight into the women's restroom while blasting Staind's "It's Been Awhile" on his mini-speaker.

We're told he was inside for about a minute -- and acted normal while a bunch of confused women looked on ... some doing double takes.

Ultimately, he left without issue and went on his merry way ... continuing to play that Staind song.

Dr. Luke Settles With Kesha's Mom Drops Defamation Suit

6/23/2017 1:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

Dr. Luke's nearly 3 year saga in a defamation lawsuit against Kesha's mom is finally over -- the suit's been dropped and they've reached a settlement.

TMZ broke the story ... the music producer claimed in a 2014 lawsuit that Pebe Sebert orchestrated a smear campaign of sexual lies against him. He also claimed Pebe wanted Kesha to break her contract with him, and when she couldn't, Pebe got Kesha to spread lies that he raped her.

But the parties have now agreed to dismiss the case with prejudice -- meaning it can't be refiled. Translation: They settled it, and one thing Luke got was a statement from Pebe regarding his sexual assault case with Kesha.

According to the statement ... "Pebe admits she has no firsthand knowledge of the events occurring on the night of the alleged rape. Pebe was not present that night. At that time, Pebe was in Nashville, and Kesha was in Los Angeles. The dispute between Kesha and Dr. Luke about the events of that night is the subject of the New York case, and will be decided in that case."

As we reported ... Pebe countersued Dr. Luke claiming he tormented and abused her by allegedly date raping her daughter. That case was dropped in April 2016.

6/23/2017 11:17 AM PDT

Will the real Slim Shady please stand up ... because that dude with the beard standing between Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar can't be him, can it?

Eminem posed for a pic with his fellow rap gods and label mates ... along with famed West Coast hip-hop producer FredWreck. It was Wreck's birthday, but Marshall Mathers stole the spotlight with his new facial hair.

The normally baby-faced rapper premiered his scruff at the premiere of "The Defiant Ones" in L.A. Thursday night ... a documentary about the partnership between Dre and Jimmy Iovine.

Brandy Serenaded by Common ... After Health Scare

6/23/2017 10:10 AM PDT

Brandy Norwood is doing just fine after her airplane medical emergency ... but Common treated her extra special at his concert Thursday night anyway.

The rapper brought Brandy onstage at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento and put her front and center. As he performed his 2002 track, "Come Close," she smiled and waved her arms ... then got serenaded with the final verse.

We broke the story ... Brandy fell into unconsciousness earlier this month on a Delta flight at LAX just before takeoff, and was rushed to the hospital. She said the collapse was the result of exhaustion, although at least one witness on the plane says she had taken a pill just before the medical emergency.

EXCLUSIVE

Zac Brown wants a judge to excuse him from a court date to settle a fan's lawsuit.

Zac's being sued by Karen Perry, a blind woman, who says she was gravely injured during his 2015 concert at Fenway Park. She claims Zac incited the crowd to storm the disabled section where she was sitting.

According to docs ... Zac's promoter for the show, Live Nation, is stepping in to defend him at next week's scheduled mediation hearing.

Zac says the Live Nation rep who will be there has full authority to settle the lawsuit ... so there's no reason for him to show his face.

6/23/2017 7:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Amber Rose appears to have at least one bush backer in rapper 21 Savage ... after they left a show together in L.A.

We got them Thursday night walking out of the Belasco Theater where there was a music show put on by Red Bull. They got into his red Ferrari, and since it only seats 2 ... the math was looking good for a hookup.

Amber's not shy ... she claims she hasn't had any sex partners this year because work's kept her so busy, there's "no time for penis." Raises the question: for whom is she bringing that bush back?

21 Savage might have the answer.

Aaron Carter Hospitalized After Getting Bullied

6/23/2017 7:04 AM PDT

Aaron Carter ended up in the hospital, apparently for exhaustion, following a concert -- the cherry on top of an awful night, which he says included some major body shaming.

The singer performed at the HOT 107.9 concert in Syracuse Thursday night and afterward said he was headed to the ER for a checkup ... something about staying strong following a string of shows.

He also revealed he had a run-in with a fan who said he looks like he has cancer. Aaron says the fan was talking to someone else, and didn't realize he was listening, but added ... he needed to eat 5 cheeseburgers because it looks like he's dying.

Aaron took it hard, saying ... "They literally won't stop bullying me" and "I'm sorry I'm not fat enough."
