Ciara vs. Future

Like Superman and Lex Luthor, Ciara and Future just can't seem to get along. Ahead of Ciara's star-studded nuptials to football player Russell Williams, new reports surfaced about the former couple's ongoing legal battles. At the heart of the trouble is their son, baby Future, and Ciara's defamation suit against big Future...

This week things reheated when Ciara's lawyers filed documents alleging that Future's new song, "Juice" was a veiled threat against her fiancé. Ciara seemed to be particularly concerned with the following line...

Tryna f*** my baby mama, dog what's up with you? You gon' make me get that heat, I'm pulling up on you.

Future

Ciara also noted that Future tweeted and deleted gun emojis pointed at footballs...

Despite the fact Ciara officially tied the knot with Wilson on Wednesday, Future seems to be trying to move past the brewing drama...

Joe Budden vs. Drake

This week saw Slaughterhouse rapper Joe Budden dropping a second diss track aimed at Toronto's first son, Drake. The not-quite-beef isn't as random as it may seem given that Drake did take a slight dig at Budden on "4pm in Calabasas," rapping the following...

Look at me now, they look at me like the golden child

Drake

Budden currently hosts a podcast on which he gave a less than stellar review of the Views album in April. During the episode he referred to Drake as rap's "golden child" before going on to say...

I miss the Drake that starts the waves, not hops on other waves. And I’ll say it again: I miss the Drake that pushes the fuckin’ agenda, not let the agenda push him.

Joe Budden

Budden seems to come back to this sentiment on both diss tracks, respectively titled, "Making a Murderer" and "Wake"...

Budden, who also poked fun at Meek Mill, went on to say that he doesn't actually dislike either artist but is merely trying to motivate the younger rappers to rise to the occasion. He clarified this stance in a recent interview with Pitchfork...

I’m not addressing Drake, or addressing Meek because I am malicious toward either of them or I wish either one of them harm or ill will. I am celebrating hip-hop. I want the people who are talented to be talented.”

Iggy Azalea vs. Nick Young

Iggy Azalea and Nick Young could very well be on their way to being Future and Ciara 2.0. The formerly engaged couple has been taking subtle shots at each other since parting ways after Young's infidelity came to light...

After ending their engagement Azalea took to Twitter to claim that she had only recently learned that the mother of Young's first child, Keonna Green, was again pregnant by the NBA player. This week when paparazzi caught up with the Aussie transplant in the airport she offered the one finger salute to both pregnant Green and her former fiancé...

For his part Young has continued to dismiss the publicity from the breakup...

Reports also indicate that Azalea's lawyer sent a warning letter to Green earlier in the week to warn the expectant mother that mentioning the rapper to media outlets or a tell-all story could result in legal action...

Ms. Green has done enough to embarrass herself by her pathetic efforts to profit from Iggy’s hard-won celebrity, all in exchange for whatever paltry sums she can garner in exchange for peddling tales of her tasteless exploits. … Any mention of Iggy in your client’s efforts to sell a story to whatever tabloid needs to fill its pages with the fetid story of your client’s classless antics will be considered a violation of Iggy’s rights of publicity … subjecting Ms. Green and any publication that airs your client’s soiled laundry to significant liability.

Desiigner vs. Future

Last week in a Rolling Stone interview Future let it be known he's over the Desiigner wave. This week the neophyte rapper returned the favor with a little trolling of his own. During an appearance in Atlantic City he performed "I Got the Keys," aka Future's single with Jay Z. Troll lol lol lol lol....

Chance the Rapper vs. Whirlyball

Chance the Rapper loves Whirlyball, but this week he took to Twitter to explain why he doesn't feel that the sport loves him. According to Chance, Whirlyball, which sees basketball and bumper cars joining forces, isn't necessarily accessible to all people. In a series of tweets Chance explains why...

The company has since updated some of its policies to make them slightly less stringent, but nevertheless it seems that Chance has moved on to new sporting grounds...

Chris Brown vs. Landlord

Breezy is probably R&B's baddest bad boy since the days of Bobby Brown and New Edition, but this week the frequently maligned singer was genuinely minding his own business when he was falsely accused of vandalizing a vacation home. TMZ reported the below...

Chris Brown is once again in the crosshairs of cops, but this one's weird. Chris rented a villa in Ibiza for the last week in June, and the landlord went to police and accused Chris of trashing the house. According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Chris or someone in his crew either threw knives at the wall or carved them up. And the alleged damages gets worse ... the landlord says someone peed the bed and there was vomit everywhere. As for why cops got involved, according to the report, Chris was supposed to be out hours ago and wouldn't leave, so the landlord got police to help give him the boot. The landlord says Chris is also on the hook for $26k in rent, and with damages the landlord is now gunning for around $60k. A source close to Chris says the rent issue has been resolved, and was a banking problem on the landlord's end.

TMZ

Brown was not taking the accusations lying down. His sixth sense apparently kicked in for the better because the singer made sure to record the rental property right before he left. In a series of videos he shows a clean, undamaged home with the exception of a small dent in a wall which he cops to on video...

Hard to argue with receipts...

Vic Mensa vs. Justin Timberlake

Following activist and actor Jesse Williams' BET Award speech several celebrities took to Twitter to share how inspired they felt. Justin Timberlake was among the admirers...

However after several Twitter users pointed out that he might be considered one of the parties Williams' speech took issue with the singer responded in a manner that indicated he may have missed the point of the speech entirely...

Twitter then proceeded to drag Timberlake...

Following the incident Vic Mensa appeared on The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore and revisited Timberlake's perceived faux pas, further explaining what social media users had been saying...

Our problem here is that Justin Timberlake himself, you know, is definitely benefiting from using black culture for his sound, his dance moves, his dancers, and blowing up off of it. But if you roll down Justin Timberlake’s Twitter for the past two years, which I just did, you see nothing that supports black people when it’s more difficult, when there’s a struggle.
