Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma beef aside, Queen Latifah still believes there is U.N.I.T.Y (pun intended) in the female rap community. HipHollywood caught up with her at the press day for Girls Trip where she talked about the need for female MCs to support each other.
“I don’t think there’s no unity, just because a couple of rappers are not feeling each other,” she said alluding to Remy and Minaj’s recent rap battle. “It can be a competitive sport almost but I think at the end of the day we all need to move forward. I want to hear female rappers everywhere so we need to be clicking up and we need to be supporting whose ever out.”
“Obviously you can’t just say whatever and do whatever without there being repercussions,” she continued. “There are consequences to actions and we see that. But at the end of the day the most important thing is let everybody say what they want to say just play the damn record.”
Latifah whose been busy making movies did say she’s been toying with the idea of making another hip hop album. In the meantime you’ll have to check her out in Girl Trip in theaters July 21.
Exclusive Details: Trey Songz Arrested For Domestic Violence + Singer’s Public Response
HipHollywood can confirm that singer, Trey Songz, was arrested on Monday morning on domestic violence charges.
The Los Angeles Police Department tells us that Tremaine Neverson, the r&b crooner’s legal name, was taken into custody around 6:30am. The arrest stemmed from an alleged violent incident on February 18.
We are told the singer was let out on bail, which was set at $50k.
After being released, Songz took to Instagram to respond to the arrest, writing on Twitter:
“For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain”
He added, “I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support.”
The singer was also clearly unbothered by the arrest because he went as far as to share a string of stories on Instagram, which included him raving about the beautiful day and blasting music throughout his home.
As previously reported, during All Star Weekend, a woman claimed Songz unleashed fury during a Hollywood Hills party after he spotted her talking to another man.
Following the incident, the woman went to the hospital where she was treated before calling police.
The alleged victim’s lawyer, famous women’s rights attorney Lisa Bloom, even took to Instagram earlier this month to ask for any witnesses. “Went with my client today for her second police interview re her allegations that Trey Songz choked and punched her earlier this month,” Bloom tweeted. “Many were present. We need just one to have a conscience and step forward as a witness.”
