According to People Magazine, Jay Z & Beyonce have renewed their wedding vows recently while overseas.

Remember that rumor over the Summer that Jay Z & Beyonce were heading for divorce? Well just as we thought, it turns out not be true as the Carter’s are indeed “drunk in love”. According to People Magazine, music’s most powerful couple have recently renewed their wedding vows while overseas.

A source told People that the couple’s relationship did face “major problems”, but they worked it out and renewed their vows. According to that souce, Jay & Bey decided to “work it out for [the sake of] their reputations and for [their 2-year-old daughter] Blue Ivy”.

The two were recently spotted house hunting in Paris over the past month or so. They’ve also toured a villa near the Seine, a home in a gated community known as “Millionaire’s Row,” and a townhouse next to the Elysee Palace (see photos in gallery).

To coincide with all this, the couple is reportedly in the studio overseas working on a joint album that’s rumored to be released later this year or in early 2015. Hopefully all this is true in the name of hip-hop.

Tyga has been on the radar for controversy lately. First, he unleashed some tweets that signaled that there was some friction between him and his Young Money/Cash Money family. Now, he is alleged to be dating an underage Kylie Jenner, which he denies. In the midst of all the tension, the LA native has graced a digital cover of VIBE and has given his truth about it all.

When asked if YMCMB would be apart of his creative process for his new album, he said he was trying to distance himself from them and go independent. While discussing why, he dropped a bomb.

“I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki,” he told VIBE. “I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is.”

The “Rack City” rapper also touched on not only whether he is dating 17-year-old Kylie Jenner, which he firmly denied, but his relationship with the whole Kardashian clan.

“Kylie? Nah. See the thing about Kylie… I’ve known Kylie and the whole family for four years. I introduced Chyna to Kim about a year ago. So everybody’s been cool, but like it’s just so hard, their world is different. If somebody wanna hang out, cool, I’m not opposed to hanging out with somebody. I hang out with her [Kylie], her sister [Kendall], I hang out with Scott [Disick] sometimes, I hang out with Khloe sometimes. But people wanna take the situation [with Kylie] to the next level.”

Loaded Lux and Premo: a match made in hip-hop heaven?

DJ Premier has his hands full nowadays. On top of producing an entire collaborative project with Royce Da 5’9”, the legendary producer has also agreed to handle the boardwork on upcoming album from battle rapperLoaded Lux.

“I was like, ‘Yo, we gotta work on a project,’” Premier tells RapIsOuttaControl. “We haven’t put it out there, but we’ve been having verbal meetings about doing an album project together, and we’re gonna make that happen.”

There’s no confirmation yet whether or not the Lux LP will see the light of day before or after Premier’s long-awaited collaborative album with Nas, which is on the back burner while Nasty finishes his upcoming solo project.

Does the prospect of a Loaded Lux/Premo LP interest you? Let us know what you think in the comment section.

Mac Miller and his Remember Music imprint have found a new home with Warner Bros.

Mac Miller proved that a rapper can be successful as a completely independent artist, paving the way for artists like Macklemore who found similar benefits doing things on their own. This makes news that Mac has signed with Warner Bros. an even bigger deal, making this his first ever pairing with a major label.

According to FADER, Mac will take his indie label, Remember Music to Warner as an imprint. Under this new deal he will release both his own records, and those of the artists he chooses to endorse. The whole package is rumored to be worth $10 million.

Mac commented on his decision to sign in an email.

“Warner is the most independent thinking company I met with… It is a partnership and now I can focus on building my label Remember through music and let them handle everything I don’t like doing. Nothing will change in how I do things,” he said, making a good point, “They have Prince.”

Interscope has possibly parted ways with 19-year-old drill star Chief Keef.

Since Chief Keef signed with Interscope in Summer 2012, he’s given them his debut album, Finally Rich, and… not much else. Since dropping that project in Decemeber 2012, Keef has not only failed to put out a follow-up, but his already-lengthy rap sheet has gotten longer — and now Interscope has reportedly dropped him from their roster.

AllHipHop says they have info from an unnamed source inside Interscope, and write, “Interscope began to ‘subtly disassociate’ itself from the 19-year-old rapper after he had a series of legal cases sprout up in 2013 and 2014.” Adding that Keef’s been “quietly dropped,” the source says “Keef and his people tried to keep the label accountable (once Keef moved to Los Angeles) but Interscope didn’t seem interested in dropping a new album. Keef’s team tried to have formal meetings but nothing moved.”

Stay tuned for official confirmation, and expect Keef’s new output (which has already been pretty weird) to keep getting weirder.

Kevin Hart and Drake trade teasing, but good-natured jabs on Instagram, spurred by Drake’s recent air ball.

Everyone who’s ever played basketball has shot an air ball at some point, but only those whose wild misses are caught on camera face the consequences. Drake, who has alleged in the past that he’s “Steph Curry with the shot,” is one of them, and he’s currently serving as the butt of jokes across the country for his much-publicized whiff while on the court with the Kentucky Wildcats. Comedian Kevin Hart has joined in on the fun, posting a funny clip to his Instagram, and now Drake has responded on IG in an equally hilarious fashion.

Hart’s post is below, and he wrote: “That moment when you forget your profession and try and live in the moment!!!! #WTFwasHeThinking #WhyIsHeInFulluniform #HesBringingTheProgramDown #iHopeHeWasntWearingaJerseyUnderThatJacket #CanadaHatesThatHeDidThis #iHopeHeDoesaSongButHowStupidThisWas #DrakeMakesBadDecisions.”

A rep for Lil Boosie confirms an official switch to “Boosie Badazz.”

Since getting released from prison earlier this year, Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie has made guest appearances on big albums by Jeezy and T.I., but his name did not appear on the official tracklists of either album. Instead, a moniker that had always functioned as more of a self-referencing nickname, Boosie Badazz, appeared in its place. According to XXL, a rep for Boosie says that the rapper has changed his name to its more badass, mature incarnation.

Also using the name “Boosie Badazz” in his tweets, Boosie has yet to change his Twitter handle, but then again, so does (Young) Jeezy.

Has Boosie joined the ranks of Bow Wow (Shad Moss), Romeo, Jeezy and, if you consider “doggy” a synonym of “puppy,” Snoop Dogg as a rapper who has matured his formerly juvenile-sounding name? Only time will tel

Cam’ron is selling completely useless “Ebola masks” with his face on them.

According to Wikipedia, “The spread of Ebola between people occurs only by direct contact with the blood or body fluids of a person after symptoms have developed.” Despite that, Cam’ron seems to think that you can catch Ebola by simply breathing the same air as an infected person. He’s now selling completely useless “Ebola masks” with his likeness on them.

Killa Cam announced via an Instagram post (below) bearing the following caption: “Ebola is no joking matter.. So if u have to be safe.. Be fashionable. #CamEbolaMask get’m at @dipsetusa1997nx week, made by @chinagramwww.dipsetUsa.com.”

The worst part is, he doesn’t seem to be alone in his misguided beliefs. T.I.also seems to think a mask is a necessary step to preventing an Ebola infection.

Although the Center for Disease Control and Prevention may have never been responsible for an album as dope as Purple Haze, you should probably trust them on the subject of Ebola before you trust your favorite rapper.

Dej Loaf has been on the rise ever since her hit “Try Me” started getting buzz in the streets. The hardcore tune has caught the ear of many and got the remix treatment from the likes of Wiz Khalifa, the LOX, E-40 and also has an official remix on the way featuring Ty Dolla Sign and Remy Ma.

The major labels have taken notice and it seems that the Detroit singer/rapper has been snagged by Columbia Records. In a radio news post, Hits Daily Double listed that Columbia Records is servicing her hit “Try Me,” so it can be assumed that she is their newest signee.

Artists like Juicy J, Raury, Rita Ora and Beyonce’ also call Columbia home.
