Last week: Meek Mill took shots at Cassidy and Kendrick Lamar, ASAP Rocky assaulted a fan, details were revealed about 2 Chainz' latest arrest, and Lil Wayne looked back on his decision to leave high school.
Meek Mill Releases Cassidy & Kendrick Lamar Diss Songs
Meek Mill has responded to slights from Cassidy and Kendrick Lamar with disses of his own. On "Kendrick You Next," he tackles Cassidy and questions the Philly lyricist's street reputation. "You said you's a gangsta, but you never pop nothin'," raps Meek over the instrumental to 50 Cent's "Wanksta." And you locked your homie out when you heard the cops comin'..."
He takes on Kendrick over an instrumental that includes snippets of the West Coast classics "Forgot About Dre" and "The Next Episode." He bashes Lamar's boast of being the "King of N.Y." and mocks his style of rap. "You've been in the game like a year and some change / and you feeling yourself so I'm killing these ni**as," spits Meek on "Ooh Kill Em."
Thus far, neither Cassidy nor Kendrick Lamar has responded to Meek's disses.
ASAP Rocky Charged With Assault
ASAP Rocky has been charged with assault following an incident involving a fan Saturday at the Made in America Festival in Philadelphia.
According to the victim, the New York rapper was walking through the packed crowd during his performance when several female fans begin pulling on his clothes. Angered by their grabs, ASAP allegedly turned around and slapped the victim. In her criminal complaint, she claims that the slap caused her to suffer whiplash. The DA reviewed the case and decided to move forward with a misdemeanor assault charge against ASAP. He has not responded to the allegations.
Police Report From 2 Chainz Arrest Reveals Drugs & Weapons
The police report from 2 Chainz's arrest in OKC has been released. Cops uncovered two semi-automatic pistols, a 12-gauge pump shotgun and prescription painkillers on the tour bus, in addition to drug paraphernalia like metal marijuana grinders, pipes, rolling papers and scales. Thus far, charges have not been filed.
Despite all of his legal troubles, 2 Chainz remains hopeful that things will be cleared up.
"At the end of the day, we're supposed to be kind of on the same team," said the Atlanta rapper during an interview with Peter Bailey on NBC's NiteCap. "I'm not the bad guy. I'm only in town to entertain people. Once they know I'm not trying to incite riots, I'm not trying to be disrespectful, I'm only trying to feed my family and entertain."
Lil Wayne Talks About Dropping Out of High School, Prison Time
During an interview with Katie Couric, which will air Sept. 16, Lil Wayne talks about dropping out of school and how he was treated during his year-long stint in prison. According to the YMCMB rapper, it was ultimately his mother who decided to pull him out of school because it was no longer safe. And although the other inmates were at first excited about seeing him, the hype quickly wore off.
"It was my mom's idea. I had an album out. I was platinum already, thank God. I was still trying to go to regular public school, and she saw me getting ready for school one day...and she saw me putting my gun in my backpack," recalls Wayne. "...She walked back to my room, she said, 'You don't go to school no more. You getting a GED,' and I was like, 'OK.'"
