A$AP ROCKY PLEADS NOT GUILTY IN ALLEGED ASAP RELLI SHOOTING INCIDENT: According to Rolling Stone, A$AP Rocky has pled not guilty after being accused of shooting fellow A$AP Mob member A$AP Relli back in November 2021. Rocky appeared in court to enter a not guilty plea in the incident after he was accused of shooting A$AP Relli back in November 2021. Judge Victoria Wilson set in motion the protective order requested by prosecutors, which prevents Rocky from “possessing any firearms or ammunition and prohibits him from contacting or coming within 100 yards,” from Rell. In return, Caplan said to Judge Wilson, “We request that the protective order be mutual, your honor, because my client does not pose a danger.” Judge Wilson responded, “As the case now stands, there is a case against Mr. Mayers. If one is subsequently filed against Mr. Ephron, we could deal with that then.” The judge also ruled that Rocky should “clear dates” with the court first, when asked about his ability to travel for work. A$AP Rocky has been charged with two counts of using a semiautomatic firearm to assault Relli. His next court date has been scheduled for November 2nd, 2022.

How dare you. How dare you encourage this woman’s children to be a part of your nonsense. When they look back, they’re gonna say, ‘Why, why, why did we do this?’ They’re kids. They don’t know how detrimental this is. But you know, c–ksucker.”

TRILLER RESPONDS TO SWIZZ BEATZ AND TIMBALAND'S LAWSUIT: According to TMZ, Triller responded to Swizz Beatz and Timbaland's lawsuit, saying that they paid the Verzuz creators over $50 million in cash and stock. They said in a statement, “This is not a feud over VERZUZ, but simply about earn-out payments to Swizz and Tim. Swizz and Tim have personally been paid by Triller over $50 million in cash and stock to-date, and they stand to benefit even more over time. In addition, they have annual obligations, which if met, and no breach has occurred, entitles them to additional payments.” The statement continued, “Only one payment of $10 million is in question. We do not believe they have met the thresholds for that payment yet, which include, but are not limited to, delivery of a set number of VERZUZ events for 2022. We have been trying to resolve this amicably and this does not affect VERZUZ operations or Triller’s ownership of VERZUZ. If this does proceed in court, we look forward to a judgment that weighs all the facts.”
MIGOS REVEALS WHY TAKEOFF WASN'T ON 'BAD & BOUJEE': During an interview with Rap Radar, Quavo and Takeoff revealed why Takeoff was left off on “Bad & Boujee.” Quavo said, “I just think it was just timing. We was just trying to get something out. We was actually pissed off because we ain’t have no music out. I think like a couple months before the whole little wave and we was going through the litigation with 300 Entertainment, so we ended up leaking ‘Bad N Boujee’ on SoundCloud first. Sh*t, I wasn’t even gonna be on it. I had to do my verse on some quick fast in a rush sh*t. So it was just like everybody running to the song and trying to get it done.”
