Future Lawsuit Rocko Claims Stonewalling I Want the Mask Off His Pay Stubs!

5/23/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tracking down Future's money is like trying to find a "magician in a room of smoke and mirrors" ... so claims Rocko, who wants a judge to help him secure the rapper's financials.

Rocko filed new court docs last week in his lawsuit against Future, asking a judge to force Future's camp to stop stonewalling over his demand for financial records.

Rocko says Future's lawyers at Epic Records have been offering boilerplate answers and legal mumbo jumbo as to why they can't give Rocko the docs. He's says Future's hurting any chance of settlement. Rocko's suit claims he discovered Future, was promised a cut of profits and then was kicked to the curb.

You'll recall ... Rocko also wants a judge to set up a court controlled account to hold cash Future makes from his Nobody Safe Tour that's already underway. 

Rocko's expecting at least $10 mil.

Judge to Snoop, Dre, Suge You're Off the Hook Ain't No Case Here

5/22/2017 2:38 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The guys suing Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Suge Knight and other rappers behind "Ain't No Fun (If The Homies Can't Have None)" are 24 years too late.

A California court dismissed the lawsuit brought by 2 L.A. rappers who claimed Snoop and co. stole the hook to 'Ain't No Fun' way back in the early '90s.

According to court docs, these fellas had 3 years to file a lawsuit ... 3 years from 1993.

We broke the story ... the 2 rappers sued Snoop and his Death Row Records crew last year for using their original hook to the rap hit without living up to their end of the alleged bargain ... getting the dudes a record deal and promoting their careers.

The rappers tried claiming the 3 year period reset every time the song was played ... but a judge wasn't buying what they were selling.

Sources close to production tell us ... April Walker -- who designed for Pac and Biggie in the '90s -- brought back some of her original wardrobe designs for filming the biopic.

We're told April had to remake 2 costumes for the biopic using patterns she saved from back in the day. One of them is the yellow Walker Wear vest Tupac rocked in "Above the Rim" -- and the other is a tracksuit she custom made for Big.

Besides coming in handy for the movie ... we're told April also wants to use her old designs for a museum exhibit featuring the resurrected hip-hop wear.

Rapper T-Wayne Back Off T-Pain & Weezy Fans ... I Didn't Steal My Name!!

5/20/2017 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

T-Wayne -- the Houston emcee best known for his track "Nasty Freestyle" -- says he's fed up with the backlash he's been getting since T-Pain and Lil Wayne's famous collab album dropped.

The rapper tells us fans of the "T-Wayne" album -- nearly 10 years in the making -- are pissed at him because they think he's trying to compare himself to the hip-hop legends.

T-Wayne says those fans got it twisted ... he's been going by his rap name since he was a kid. His first and middle names are Tyson Dwayne, so it's legit -- and Weezy and T-Pain fans just gotta deal with it.

"T-Wayne" the album's been in the works since 2009, when the Houston rapper was 18. He went on to blow up in 2015 when his hit reached #9 on Billboard.

5/19/2017 1:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mathew Knowles has some insider info that should get the Beyhive buzzin' ... about how much longer we have to wait 'til Beyonce has her twins.

Bey's father came on "TMZ Live" and we asked him to give us a ballpark figure on when the twins will be delivered. Like, should we order a bouquet now ... or hold off a few days, maybe weeks?

Mathew answered ... and seemed pretty confident.

You may recall ... Beyonce and Mathew went through a rough patch before reconciling last year. As for recent reports he's NOT in the know about her pregnancy ... he denies that, and certainly SEEMS to be in the loop.

EXCLUSIVE

McKayla Maroney already has a celebrity fan after posting that booty video last week -- Rich Homie Quan ... who's so impressed, he's down to put her in one of his music videos. 

The "Type of Way" rapper was at LAX when he checked out the Olympic gymnast's racy butt video -- the one some people thought was so racy, it must have been hacked (don't worry, it wasn't). 

"I don't think it's a bad thing," Quan says ... "I respect her for doing it."

McKayla has said she wants to be a pop star.

So ... collaboration???

MC Hammer Slays Dance Floor ... U Still Can't Touch This

5/17/2017 12:23 PM PDT

MC Hammer is too legit to quit when it comes to busting a move, but something is noticeably missing from his routine.

Hammer was warming up in a dance studio Tuesday night, and the video looks like a freakin' time warp -- 'cause he hasn't lost a step, at 55 years old.

He says he was learning a routine as a favor for a friend's TV show. Looks like he's got it down pat already.

Bottom line: Hammer's still got it. Everything but the pants.

A$AP Rocky Home Hit in Armed Robbery ... More Than $1 Mil Taken

5/17/2017 5:41 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

12:10 PM PT -- TMZ has learned the suspects got into the house through an unlocked window and A$AP's sister walked in on them. 

A$AP Rocky's crib got rolled Tuesday night by armed robbers ... TMZ has learned.

The incident went down around 11:30 PM and, according to law enforcement sources, 3 male suspects knocked on the door to his L.A. home. When a woman answered, they pulled a gun and forced their way into the house.

We're told the men grabbed the woman and took her around the house while they scooped up a ton of loot -- about $1.5 million in jewelry and other property.

They also took a safe, but left it on the sidewalk for some reason before bolting in their getaway vehicle.

We're told the woman is a relative of A$AP, who was not home at the time. She was not tied up and it appears she was not injured.

Our sources say it looks like this was not a random hit, but rather the suspects targeted the rapper.

To that point ... late Tuesday, A$AP posted a video showing one of his buddies dropping a ton of cash into a bill counter.

 

Treach Wants Flex Fired for Tupac Diss ... Threatens Ninja Skills!

5/16/2017 7:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Loyalty to Tupac Shakur has no expiration date ... according to Treach, who's putting more pressure on Funkmaster Flex and demanding Hot 97 terminate the DJ for dissing 'Pac . 

TMZ broke the story ... Treach has been enraged since Flex claimed Tupac actually shot himself in 1994, but blamed Notorious B.I.G. for it instead. He was still heated when we saw him Tuesday night outside L.A.'s Peppermint Club.

Naughty By Nature's frontman insists Flex won't be able to book gigs anywhere in the country when he's done with him. We suspect Treach had a little to drink ... based on the ninja moves he threatened to unleash on Flex.

He should stick to diss tracks, like "Woooh." Way more intimidating than the ninja stuff.

5/16/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Keke Palmer wanted to test the effectiveness of her new single, so she took it to a strip club with 2 Chainz -- strictly for research purposes.

Keke hit up VLive in Atlanta to promote her new song featuring Quavo, "Wind Up," which came out just last month. We're told she showed up with R&B singer Jacquees, and 2 Chainz joined them a little later.

Turned into a pretty wild night with the strippers -- always a good sign the song's a banger. Folks in the club say Keke dropped around $11k, Jacquees spent $7k ... and 2 Chainz, a sensible $4k.

Costly research.

There were several people who were injured because of the mayhem. Travis was cuffed as soon as he left the stage. 

Interesting side note ... Travis stands at a solid 6 feet. On the dot.

You'll recall ... he got busted for the same thing a couple years ago at Lollapalooza in Chicago.

More recently, Travis encouraged fans in NYC to jump from balconies. It's kinda his thing ... getting fans super turnt, but cops in Arkansas weren't having it.

It doesn't appear Kylie Jenner was with him last night. Not shockingly, #freetravisscott is already a thing ... even though he's already free.
