​Megan Thee Stallion is hitting back at claims from one of her ex-boyfriends that she abused him.

Megan Thee Stallion’s love life has always been a point of interest for the masses, with rumors following her of links to Trey Songz, Tristan Thompson, G-Eazy, and others. The only relationship which Megan has publicly acknowledged was with Moneybagg Yo, and the pair split up last year, with the “Said Sum” rapper having been dating Ari Fletcher for at least nine months. The latest rumor involving Megan’s name claims that the Houston hottie assaulted her ex, Karim York after the latter wrote a message about a former girlfriend who had abused him while on drugs.

50 Cent is ripping Irv Gotti for admitting in a new interview that he tried to blocked Fif’s career before Dr. Dre picked him up.

50 Cent has more than his fair share of enemies, and he stays ready with a clapback whenever one of them wants to rehash old beefs. This time it was Murder Inc. co-founder Irv Gotti who stirred up new trouble over the past when he did an interview with Hot 107.9’s B High and told a behind-the-scenes story that quickly had hip hop fans abuzz. Claiming that he was responsible for holding Fifty back from success for a long time before he was finally signed by Dr. Dre, Gotti admitted, “I blocked the n***a until he fell into Em and Dre’s lap. Labels would call me and I was so hot,

I was just the hottest thing, I’d be like, ‘Yo, if you f*ck with him, I ain’t f*ckin’ with you’. And they’d be like, ‘We ain’t f*ckin’ with him then Gotti, forget it.’”

My name is Lesley Seale and I am a visual artist and also a member of the Multifarious Dance Crew.

What's new with Lesley Seale?

Well, let's start from early this year when I began to work at an establishment where I knew I didn't want to stay because it was a means to an end, a place holder until I could work at the NIFCA Art Exhibition once again. Then, the COVID-19 pandemic arose and quickly halted my plans for the year. Due to some serious complications with the job I made the decision to leave that job and push myself as a creative.

Posted by Azania Tuesday, September 8, 2020 9:00:00 AM Categories: Shaquille GFG

What’s the story about ‘Own Ting’?
In terms of the minor details it was written by myself (Shaquille), produced by Jus D and mixed and mastered by Jus D. It’s actually on a riddim called the Inside Out Riddim and there are about 3-4 other songs on the riddim as a well.

The concept behind the song ‘Own Ting’ is really and truly…it speaks to women and uplifting women…letting them know that their own ting. They don’t need to depend on men for anything but it’s kind of like a twist on it…like if the man not treating you right stuff like that. It’s basically going down that line but when you look at the lyrics you would kind of get the gist or idea….

The explicit lyrics in the song caused a polarising effect, with some claiming that it preached female empowerment, while others felt that it was simply crude to gain attention. Either way, the fans enjoyed listening as it earned the largest number of first-week streams for a song in Billboard history, and the music video broke the record for the most views within 24 hours for a female collaboration.
