Talib Kweli America Wanted Payback for 'N**** President' ... That's Why Trump Won

4/25/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Talib Kweli thinks Donald Trump's rise to the White House was powered by America's desire for revenge after Barack Obama was elected the first African-American president.

Talib was brutally honest at LAX Monday ... about President Trump's first 100 days in office, and his belief the bar is set incredibly low for white Commanders in Chief. He also referred to Obama as the n-word president, so ... there's that.  

Check out the rant -- Talib does say there's a way for Trump to turn things around, but his demands are lengthy. 

Lil Wayne Here Comes My 'Goon Squad' ... That Flying Drink Was Too Close

4/24/2017 7:23 AM PDT

Lil Wayne called for backup when a fan pissed him off by tossing a drink in the middle of his concert ... and his backup is HUGE. 

Weezy was in the middle of spitting "A Milli" Sunday night in Garden City, Idaho when a drink rained down from the crowd ... nearly hitting Wayne. Just a splash is all it took for Wayne to calmly inform the crowd ... his "goon squad" was gonna handle the situation. 

He cut the show short, but not before reminding the fans ... he's no buster, he's rich. 

Classic.

Lil Wayne never coming back to Idaho!

Migos' Quavo New Napoleon Complex Cost Me $35k in Gold & Diamonds!!

4/24/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Migos' Quavo now has his own piece of bling based off one of the group's hit tracks, but unlike Offset ... he decided to big up the song, "Dat Way."

Quavo threw down $35k for his new rose gold chain and Napoleon pendant covered in over 300 diamonds at a total weight of 10 carats.

It was made by Atlanta's Icebox Diamonds & Watches, where owner Zahir Jooma tells us Quavo is a regular. Zahir says Quavo asked for Napoleon pointing "dat way" since it symbolized power and progress.

Quavo was already rockin' the new bling last weekend at Coachella.

Remember, Offset was at the festival, repping for "Bad and Boujee" with his raindrop chain.


Ex-NBA Star Daniel Gibson My Music Career's Poppin' ... Ask Chris Brown & Wiz!

4/24/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NBA star Daniel Gibson says his music career is BLASTING OFF ... telling TMZ Sports he's been working with some HUGE artists lately, like Chris Brown & Wiz Khalifa.

Gibson put down the rock and picked up the mic some time ago, and when we got him out in L.A., we asked him how things have been going since the career move.

Turns out, Boobie's KILLIN' IT ... telling our guy he's working with some of the hottest artists around, but mostly as a writer because he feels the fact he used to be an NBA star holds his solo career back.

That's a shame ... dude's got some bars, hear 'em below.

Machine Gun Kelly Leaves Stage with Severe Chest Pain

4/23/2017 9:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Machine Gun Kelly's concert was delayed when severe chest pain forced him off stage to get medical assistance.

MGK grabbed at his chest multiple times while performing at Seminole Casino in South FL ... and eventually couldn't stand the pain anymore. He walked off in the middle of doing his hit, "Bad Things."

According to Kelly's reps, paramedics had to come check him out at the venue. It wasn't a heart issue ... turns out Kelly was injured while shooting the movie "Captive State" a day earlier. We're told he's doing some of his own stunts on the flick, and as he described it ... got "punched in the chest 65 times."

Unclear what the diagnosis is -- broken ribs or just bruised -- but MGK toughed it out, and finished the show. He was still in pain though, and gladly accepted (*cough cough*) herbal remedies from a fan.

Lil Wayne I Swear, I'm Roc Nation Now ... Jay's Helping Me Out Any Way He Can

4/21/2017 4:05 PM PDT
Breaking News

Lil Wayne is insisting he's with Jay Z's Roc Nation now, and no longer a part under Birdman's umbrella ... despite his unsettled legal war to flee Cash Money.

Wayne sat down for an interview with Skip Bayless on FS1's 'Undisputed,' and chose his words carefully. Weezy never said he "signed" with Roc Nation ... but laid out what Jay IS doing for him right now.

Lil Wayne sued Cash Money 2 years ago, asking to be released from the label. We know that hasn't been resolved yet, and Wayne admits as much to Skip. Still, he's making it clear where his allegiance lies -- it's the 2nd time in a month Weezy's thrown up the Roc.

Why does it feel like he's doing this for one person in particular?

I don't even know where to start of how amazing the concert was last night!! #youngmoney #weezy #lilwayne #sru #rocnation

Ice Cube Making New 'Friday' Movie Says His Movie Dad

4/21/2017 8:50 AM PDT
Breaking News

HUGE NEWS from Ice Cube Friday morning ... courtesy of his co-star and movie dad, John Witherspoon -- there's a new 'Friday' movie coming!

John was on the radio in Orlando when he dropped the bombshell news, saying he'd just spoken to Cube, who told him the project got the greenlight from studio honchos.

It's been 15 years since "Friday After Next" ... and a lot's changed since then. Cube's a bonafide power player in Hollywood now -- with the success of "Straight Outta Compton" -- which could mean bigger budget for the 'Friday' sequel.

The big question: can he get Chris Tucker, aka Smokey, back this time?

And you know this, mannn!

Mary J. Blige My Ex Blew $420k To Live It Up with New GF

4/20/2017 4:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mary J. Blige is ripping into estranged husband Martin "Kendu" Isaacs for spending her hard-earned money on his new girlfriend, and demanding she support his kids from a previous relationship.

TMZ obtained new docs filed by Mary in the divorce, and she says during the marriage Martin took more than $420,000 and chalked it up as "travel charges." Remember, he was her manager ... but Mary says those expenses were not business-related and did NOT include her. She says Martin spent that dough on his gf.

As we've reported ... Martin is asking for more than $110k per month in spousal support, but Mary says that's outrageous. She says, "I am not responsible for supporting [Martin's] parents and his children from another relationship which he lists as ongoing monthly expenses." 

Plus, Mary says there's no money left for handouts, anyway. In the docs, she says their estate is "underwater" ... to the tune of $10 million. As she put it, she has all the burden of covering their expenses, while Martin "contributes absolutely nothing."

We reached out to Martin's attorney, but no word back yet.

Wiz Khalifa Spark My Kush While You Can!!

4/20/2017 4:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa's got perfect timing -- his Khalifa Kush is back just in time to salute his favorite holiday.

The rapper's indica-dominant hybrid strain is available only at RiverRock Cannabis in Denver, CO ... and the joint's director of operations, Rich Miller, tells us the store stocked up with 6 pounds of the rapper's popular kush.

A bunch of stoners lined up when the store opened Thursday morning to get their weed. It's expected to sell out FAST ... not just because it's 4/20 but because Wiz is scheduled for a concert at nearby Red Rocks Amphitheatre this weekend.

Getting Wiz kinda high will cost ya -- about $55 for an 1/8th, but you get a $10 discount if you're buying it for medicinal purposes.

Happy 4/20!!

Flo Rida I'm No Deadbeat! I'm Paying $5k/Mo.

4/20/2017 2:16 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Flo Rida is calling BS on the baby mama who claims he's a deadbeat dad, saying he already forks over a generous check every month ... and her lawsuit is nothing but a cash grab.

Sources close to Flo tell TMZ he's been making monthly payments of $5k to Alexis Adams to care for their 7-month-old son, and feels blindsided by her taking him to court. We're told Flo and Alexis both agreed on the amount, but he thinks she's being greedy by asking a judge to force him to pay more.

He says they were never a couple.

Alexis acknowledges she's been getting payments, but feels it isn't nearly enough to support herself and the baby -- considering his ailments, and the high cost of living in NYC. She claims she can't afford child care, so she can't leave the baby and go to work.

Our Alexis sources say she never agreed the $5k was a fair amount, but accepted it because she needed the money.
