Offset Migos-Chris Brown Fight All About Money & Haters

6/27/2017 4:25 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown just ain't on the same level as Migos ... at least according to Offset, who says he's not sweating the fight they got into with Chris after the BET Awards.

We got Offset Tuesday on Rodeo and asked him what really set off the melee. There's obvious speculation it was about Quavo dating Breezy's ex, Karrueche Tran. Offset didn't exactly deny that when he blamed it on a "whole lotta paper, whole lotta haters, man."

But you gotta see what happened when we asked if he's got a message for Chris.

He also had an awesome reaction to the other BET weekend fight -- Meek Mill and Safaree. #LMFAO

Rick Ross B.P.F. (Blowing Pounds Fast!)

6/27/2017 6:56 AM PDT

Rick Ross is almost unrecognizable ... save for his trademark beard and tats.

Da Boss was looking like a man in charge Monday at LAX as he flaunted a seriously slimmer physique. He was flanked by his entourage as he headed to security.

The rapper, who has reportedly lost around 100 pounds, credits CrossFit for his transformation. And in true Rozay fashion ... he dubbed the popular regimen as RossFit.

Props for not only sticking to it ... but for taking the healthy route.

Taylor Swift Bizarre Congrats to Russell Westbrook ... Who She's Never Met

6/27/2017 6:30 AM PDT
Breaking News

This is weird and fun ...

Taylor Swift just made a congratulations video for newly crowned NBA MVP Russell Westbrook joking with the guy like they've been buddies for years -- even though they've never met.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star got the award Monday night -- and hours later, Taylor released the video saying, "Russell, it’s Taylor. Remember? I was the one who taught you how to play basketball?"

She jokes that she taught him everything he knows about basketball ... he gave her the idea for "Shake It Off" ... and that they go back 20 years.

She then admits they've actually never hung out together once. 

Kinda funny. Kinda weird. Kinda sweet.

What's interesting ... Taylor really hasn't done any public interviews or appearances since February -- so this is sorta like her reintroduction to the spotlight. Who'da thunk she woulda used the NBA as a way in?

Who cares ... welcome back!

Meek Mill Warned Safaree Stay Away from BET Awards

6/27/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill fired a warning shot but Safaree Samuels didn't care ... and that's why he got his ass kicked.

We're told Meek's crew delivered the message days before the BET Awards weekend kicked off in L.A. The message was simple -- stay yo ass away or else. Our Safaree sources tell us he didn't flinch when he heard the threat and wasn't gonna be a punk and hide out.

TMZ broke the story ... Meek's crew jumped and attacked Safaree Friday. Nicki Minaj's 2 exes had shown up almost around the same time to DJ Khaled's pre-BET party at Penthouse in WeHo when it went down.

We're told the beef at this point is way beyond Nicki ... it's gotten personal following the exchange of verbal jabs for more than a year. Meek has denied he was involved in the latest showdown.

But a boiling point's clearly been reached -- cause Safaree's now challenged Meek to a fight.

Stay tuned ... 

Migos, Chris Brown Fight New Video Shows Future & Khaled Got Sucked in Too

6/26/2017 3:42 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

When Migos and Chris Brown's crews went HAM at a BET Awards after-party, everyone in the vicinity of the violence got drawn into the melee ... and that includes DJ Khaled and Future.

We just obtained this video of the brawl which started inside the party. Witnesses say someone in Chris' crew threw the first punch at someone in Migos' entourage. You can see, it immediately heated up after that.

Friends held back Chris, and the scrum eventually spilled into Future and Khaled ... whose fiancée and son, Asahd, were standing nearby -- you can hear her scream.

As we showed you, the whole fight ended up spilling into a parking lot ... where ultimately everyone parted ways. Chris never threw a punch and was not arrested. 

Most importantly, no one touched a hair on Asahd's perfect head.

BET Celeb Hoops Game Soulja Boy Benched Due to Chris Brown Beef

6/26/2017 10:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Soulja Boy is second rate compared to Chris Brown ... at least to BET, which chose Chris over Soulja for Saturday's Celebrity Basketball Game.

Sources close to Soulja tell us a BET rep reached out to his manager, Miami Mike, Friday ... one day before the sold-out event, and asked him not to come because of security concerns. Everyone knows Chris and Soulja don't like each other ... there have been multiple violent threats between them.

Still, Soulja was scheduled to appear, and his face was even on promo posters.

We're told Soulja's camp tried to reassure BET there'd be no problems, but execs didn't buy it ... and cut him from the game. Chris not only showed as scheduled, but earned co-MVP honors.

Soulja, on the other hand, had to settle for BET compensating him for travel expenses.

EXCLUSIVE

New van trouble for Rich Homie Quan, and this time he's the one filing a police report after someone broke into his tour van to jack up to $2k worth of stuff.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... RHQ's Savana Explorer van got rolled early Sunday morning ... while he was performing at a club in Meridian, Mississippi. 

Cops say Quan discovered someone had smashed the back window around 2 AM, and he told cops the thieves took between $1,500 and $2,000 worth of property.

As we reported ... he recently got busted for felony weed possession in a different van just a month ago.

No suspects have been ID'd yet.

Migos & Joe Budden Nearly Come to Blows After Hostile Interview

6/26/2017 6:33 AM PDT

Migos taught Joe Budden a valuable interviewing lesson -- don't abruptly end it and walk off unless you feel like getting your ass kicked.

The bizarre scene went down Sunday as Budden, DJ Akademiks and Nadeska Alexis interviewed the rap trio on their "Everyday Struggle" show before the BET Awards.

Tensions flared when Akademiks brought up the fact Takeoff was left off the hit single "Bad and Boujee" ... prompting the rapper to fire back. After a brief exchange, Budden demands Akademiks wrap up the interview but Akademiks apparently was taking too much time for Budden's liking ... who drops the mic and walks off.

Check it out ... Migos wasn't having it and all hell nearly breaks loose.

We asked Lil Yachty for his take on the beef ... no surprise whose side he's on.

Beyonce, JAY-Z Still Dealing with Twins' Premature Birth

6/26/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce gave birth 2 weeks ago Monday, but she and Jay-Z are still dealing with premature birth issues ... sources connected to the family tell TMZ.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, as of 4 days ago the infants were still in the hospital. As we reported, they are "under the lights" ... which typically means they have jaundice, the result of elevated bilirubin issues. The lights lower bilirubin in the blood to eliminate the jaundice.

We're told none of the medical problems should pose serious long-term issues ... nonetheless, we're told doctors did not want the babies released until they were stabilized.

As we reported ... Beyonce had a boy and a girl.

The release date is unclear.

A$AP Rocky Give Peace a Chance!

EXCLUSIVE

A$AP Rocky would have thrived in the '70s ... he's all about the peace movement.

The rapper was leaving Craig's Sunday night in WeHo and we wanted to know -- what the hell happened earlier that day when a scuffle broke out at 1 OAK?

TMZ broke the story ... a fight erupted at a table near the main stage but the rapper was NOT targeted. He did, however, intervene to break up the melee.

As Rocky likes to tell it ... that's what he's all about.

Chris Brown Squares Off with Migos at BET After-Party

6/25/2017 11:18 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Migos and Chris Brown's tempers just got things jumping at the BET Awards after-party ... so much so, cops had to respond.

Sources at the party tell us Chris had just finished premiering his new music video with Future at the event ... near Microsoft Theater in downtown L.A. We're told the guys from Migos were walking in at the same time, and when they came face-to-face with Chris' crew things got tricky.

Witnesses tells us someone in Chris' group pushed Quavo, and then one of the Migos guys jumped in  ... but then he got punched. We're told Chris kept walking while all of this was going on -- perhaps, wisely, realizing he don't need any heat from Johnny Law.

However, we're told Migos and some friends followed Chris to his car and surrounded him.

Ultimately, Chris was able to leave without anyone getting hurt ... but not before some very tense moments.

We're told cops showed up too, but everyone had split by then.

6/25/2017 8:48 PM PDT

Prodigy got the honoring he deserved at the BET Awards ... and it came courtesy of his partner in rhyme, Havoc, Lil Kim and a surprise mention from Kendrick Lamar.

We broke the story ... Havoc and Kim followed through on plans to give a special shout out to Mobb Deep's Prodigy Sunday while presenting the Best Male Hip Hop Artist Award to Kendrick. 

Even Kung Fu Kenny -- in what appeared to be an impromptu nod -- paid his respects to the fallen rap legend ... saying he inspired his first mixtape at age 16. 

As we reported ... Prodigy's cause of death has been delayed pending toxicology results. His camp suggested he died after a lifelong battle with sickle cell anemia, and our sources tell us he also choked on an egg in the hospital shortly before he died.

RIP
