Tyga Shoots Down Rumors Of Sex Tape With Kylie Jenner
West Hollywood, CA – Tyga has admittedly had a stress-free media run far away from the negativity stemming from his breakup with Kylie Jenner, but things took a left turn when he appeared on The Breakfast Club where he immediately grilled about his ex. During the 27-minute interview, he said he warned Rob Kardashian about Blac Chyna.
Coincidentally, the interview came the same day T-Raww dropped his feature-heavy project Bitch I’m The Shit 2, the sequel to 2011’s Bitch I’m The Shit. To celebrate, the Compton rapper held an exclusive pop-up shop/listening party for his fans at Dom Gallery in West Hollywood, California.
With all eyes back on Tyga thanks to the release Bitch I’m The Shit 2, the mixtape track “Run it Back” prompted rumors there was a sex tape him and Jenner. The song (which features Young Thug), finds T-Raww rapping, “Reaching for my phone / Let me record that ass / Let me record that ass / If the shit leak, don’t be mad.”
HipHopDX caught up with the “Rack City” rapper who quickly disputed the rumors. In fact, he wasn’t even aware they existed.
“Nah, nah, nah,” he laughs. “We ain’t … who said that? Nah. I ain’t got no sex tape.”
In addition, fans can expect a music video to “Flossin,” which features his son King Cairo.
“It’s dope,” he says. “I did that with him maybe six months ago, ‘cause he always comes in the studio. So I wanted to put him on something. Because when I’m shooting videos and he’s on set, he always wants to be on scenes with me. So I was like, ‘I need to do a whole song with him, so I could do a video with him.’”
New York, NY – Tyga stopped by The Breakfast Club on Thursday morning (July 20) and quickly got into a conversation about his relationship with Kylie Jenner and their subsequent breakup. Eventually, he was asked about the ongoing drama between Jenner’s brother Rob Kardashian, and Tyga’s ex-girlfriend and mother to his son, Blac Chyna. The “Rack City” rapper was adamant he warned Kardashian about what he was getting into.
“I told him what the play was,” Tyga said. “I told him what he was going to deal with and I told him, ‘Be careful.’ I was with her for three or four years, and this is what you’re about to deal with.”
He also claimed Kardashian was not the type man who could manage a relationship with the former stripper turned reality star.
“She’s Chyna,” he said. “She just got a different mentality. She really is a good person at heart, but she been through a lot in her life and she really didn’t have people to help guide her and stuff like in her life.
“I just knew a nigga like him ain’t going to be able to handle somebody like her,” he added. “He coming from a whole different world. He don’t know how she move or how she think.”
Earlier this month, Kardashian put Chyna on blast in several social media posts and accused her cheating. He also posted a handful elicit photos the mother his only child, Dream. Chyna has since hit him with a temporary restraining order.

Blac Chyna’s Ex Claims She Bullied Him To The Point Of Attempted Suicide!
(AllHipHop Rumors) While Angela Renee Kardashian aka Blac Chyna is with all the sh-ts and stunts, she may have a match in one her exes!
Blac Chyna’s ex, Pilot Jones, says he wants another 15 minutes fame too. According to Jones, he doesn’t see how Blac Chyna is going in on Rob as he claims she once did the same things to him.
I would like to believe that Chyna never even dated this man, but judging by the other men she allegedly cheated on Rob Kardashian with, he fits her strange] type.
Pilot Jones accuses Blac Chyna ruining his life after their breakup when she posted his phone number online.
Jones claims he began receiving a significant amount death threats. He also goes on to say that he had to move out L.A. because it got so bad.
Pilot says that when Blac Chyna outed him as bisexual, the situation became so bad that he attempted suicide.
Apparently the only reason Pilot made it through is because he became a Buddhist.
Bullying and mental health issues along with suicide are no joking manner, but most don’t believe anything Pilot Jones has to say. It seems like he’s just trying to get in on the Rob and Chyna controversy!
Isn’t this the same dude that claimed he was Dream’s father until Dream came out looking JUST LIKE Rob Kardashian?! Idk man; IDK.

Los Angeles, CA – Omarion has been in the music business since he was a teenager. The former B2K member has taken all his life lessons and packed it into his next musical endeavor, Reasons. Although it doesn’t have a release date (yet), O promises it will be released soon, leaving it up to the fans and music lovers to connect with his songs.
Enveloped within a successful and long-standing career, the MMG-signed singer’s fifth album aims to be spiritually enlightening and he says it’s his most important album yet.
The number five is very special to Omarion. It’s symbolic manifestation and all five elements — earth, wind, fire, air and water. It represents life lessons and creative freedom. Channeling Philip Bailey and Earth, Wind & Fire’s 1974 love ballad, Omarion’s “Reasons” fits perfectly into the symbolism his fifth studio album.
“That’s a powerful number,” Omarion explains to HipHopDX. “As far as the music business goes, I shouldn’t be here. I shouldn’t have ‘Post To Be’ and shouldn’t be 3x Platinum. The number ‘5,’ being the number my album and titled Reasons, and all the different things I’ve learned over the years, it’s like this is an important album for me.”
Despite Reasons being complete with no release date in sight, Omarion continues to push his music to the masses when he can, releasing quality music videos and teasers while fans wait on the label to make its move.
“As far as the album being done, it’s mixed and mastered,” he says. “Sounds lit, okay? But this is the record business, so business is complicated. I’m hoping over the next, whatever time, that I have the opportunity to put the album out. But I will be honest with you, I really just want the right opportunity to be able to put the album out and for it to be appreciated. I’ll give you this example and that is, when we put out ‘Post To Be,’ it was like the end 2014. We dropped it and it literally took six months in order for it to gain any type traction. So, it’s really up to the fans. The power is really in they hands.”
Two previously released songs f the forthcoming album — “BDYONME” and “Distance” — were followed up by “Word 4 Word,” a song about self-discovery and everything else in between. It’s a theme Omarion consistently explores.
The visual for “W4W,” shot as a short film in Tokyo, takes on a certain aesthetic value set in Eastern philosophy. Everything O learned from being a kid in the music business to now brought him to this very moment, where he was able take on the role as an editor for his own music video.
“Everything just makes sense for me now creatively that I am able to share with my fans something that they’ve never gotten from me — a more personal side, more in-depth,” he says. “If you’re looking, watching and listening, it’s all there. The information about me is all there. I think it’s really a reflection. I think we are all a reflection one another. I think that’s what I really want people to understand about my art is that it’s my connection to you. It’s my connection to the person walking down the street. It’s what brings us together. I really just hope that people appreciate it and understand what it’s for.”
Omari touches on leveling up a lot, so it’s safe to assume everything about Reasons is on that topic. He credits his two kids, Megaa Omari and A’mei Kazuko, for making him strive for more.
“When I had kids, it shifted the purpose,” he says. “It gave me more purpose and it invigorated the process. It invigorated me as an artist to just level up and the hours are looking crazy. When I really think about it, I was really on tour as a kid with Solange and Destiny’s Child — in London. You feel me? I was 16. I’m here now, two kids later, and still excited about creating and making music and performing and connecting with people. You know everyone is going to tune in to the award show, but what are they tuning in for, you feel me? What’s up? Are you entertained? I mean I love Bruno Mars]. Bruno killed it. I started it f and put it on the wave, you know what I mean? I’m not dissing anybody or anything, but I’m challenging. I’m challenging the levels because I put my hours in so I can talk like that.”
As lead singer multi-Platinum R&B group B2K, 16-year-old Omari Ishmael Grandberry was already showing signs leveling up after his departure from the group. While Lil Fizz, Raz B and J-Boog wanted to part ways with their manager Chris Stokes, O chose to stay. This broke the hearts many B2K fans across the globe. It was devastating, but O kept putting out music and setting trends after B2K. His iconic dance moves in the “Touch” video and from 2006’s “Ice Box,” which found him pounding on his chest while reciting the words, “I got a icebox where my heart used to be,” helped the Grammy Award-nominated artist to separate himself from the pack.
Omarion has had some great moments after B2K, but for B2K fans, the breakup was a surprise. The reasons behind it remained a mystery aside from the alleged sexual abuse rumors aimed at Stokes. Fans could only assume. It’s part their past that they’ve all pretty much agreed to let go and not talk about — except for Raz B. Raz loves living in B2K’s memory despite the reported pain it’s caused him. He even commented under a picture Pleasure P’s recently, insinuating that a B2K reunion was in the works and the promoter wants Pretty Ricky on the bill. According to Omari, that’s not happening.
“What people don’t understand and fail to realize is that, it’s just like your family member,” he states. “If you get into it with your family member and you not really fooling with your family member, but you have love for your family member. You’ll always have love for your family member, but right now that ain’t really what it is. Everyone is doing their own thing. Everyone has their own life and has love for one another, but it’s not like what everyone wants to make it.
“People want to make it like New Edition and people want to make it like this connection for people versus the connection for us,” he adds. “When people see how we don’t really talk about it, it’s because it was a different connection for us. It wasn’t what it was for y’all, what it was for us. It was work for us. It was time away from our family. It was a lot different things that was tedious for us. That’s as real as I can give to you and being honest with you. It wasn’t that for us. This ain’t no Pretty Ricky where we will link back up after. We’re not N.W.A. Look how long it took them … because it was real. If it’s going to happen, it’s just going to happen, but that’s just what it is.”
As harsh as that may sound to B2K fans, leave it up to the universe to possibly one day hear them sing “Gots Ta Be” together live in the future. “Lord willing,” O hesitantly adds. “If it can be done the correct way, the proper way — Lord willing.”
In the meantime, Omarion fans living in Australia and New Zealand have the opportunity to catch him live in concert this summer while everyone else waits for Reasons to ficially drop.
Wyclef Jean and Jagged Edge Get Deep For 11th Season Of “Unsung”
Evidently inspired by JAY-Z’s new album, 4:44, and the opening track, “Kill Jay Z,” Nicki Minaj got a little sassy in a recent Instagram photo she shared on Friday (June 30). Judging by what people know about her rocky relationship with ex-boyfriend Meek Mill, Minaj’s mention Eric Benet, who is referenced on JAY’s song and also the cheating ex-husband Halle Berry, could be aimed at Meek.
“Oh so u niggaz gon sit up here & act like #Wifey aint BEEN tell y’all 1. Don’t lose the baddest girl in the world. #EricBenet,” she captioned the photo. “2. Stop throwing money ya ass ain’t rlly got. 3. Stop posting them tired stacks on the gram. oh but when Jay say it it’s #bible tho. Bad btchs unite!!!! We ain’t BEEN droppin jewels on these niggaz behind closed doors? tuh! every girl is making one these 3 faces at a nigga right now. womp womp #PrettyGang #FAX.”
Black Barbie’s post possibly attracted the attention Meek, who fired f a now-deleted post his own shortly after Minaj’s hit the web.
“When they gone come out wit a cd about all these fake b#%ches be doing????, he wrote. “fake skin color … fake weaves…. fake ass … fake mileage … fake nails…. fake friends etc … can somebody speak up. when you finally see them without everything on niggas be sick forreal #dontmakeme #youknowimsavage #howdareyou.”
Since then, it’s been all quiet on the Instagram front, but it’s seems pretty clear Meek and the “No Frauds” rapper are on shaky ground since their breakup in January 2017. Meek appeared to take shots at his ex on his Meekend Music EP and have gotten into it on Instagram before, with Meek even taking aim at her shoes, calling them “wack.”
