Word, Dunny? Lonzo Ball Says Future Has More Classics Than Nas, Riles Up Timb Boot Twitter

Lonzo Ball Vs. Timb Boot Twitter

Ex-Laker-turned-Pelican Lonzo Ball has Timb Boot Twitter in a TIZZY after basically saying Future has more classic projects than legendary lyricist Nas during his now viral interview on Big Boy’s Fuse Show.

Now, to some this sounded like pure blasphemy while many (MANY) others actually agreed with the 21-year-old baller/rapper who stirred up another spicy millennial vs. old head war across Twitter.

Peep the hilarious chaos over Lonzo siding with Future over Nas on the flip.

Jay-Z Performs ‘B-Sides’ Set At Webster Hall

Jay-Z always knows what to do to get people talking all while pushing the culture forward. The Brooklyn legend made New York’s Webster Hall great again for the venue’s reopening by performing one of his “B-sides” set with an intimate show. But it wouldn’t be a Hov show without some special guests in the building. Nas hit the stage with Jay to perform their 2007 track “Success” followed by the classic “Dead Presidents”, then the Queens legend closed out their set with “New York State of Mind”.

One of the biggest surprises of the night was Jay brought out former nemesis Cam’ron to perform their 2002 collab “Welcome to New York City.” The audience went wild seeing the semi Roc-A-fella reunion, and ish got crazier once Jim Jones joined them on stage to perform “I Really Mean It.”

A standout moment from the classic performance was Hov’s tribute to the late, great Nipsey Hussle. He freestyled:

“Gentrify your own hood before these people do it. Claim eminent domain and have your people move in. That’s a small glimpse into what Nipsey was doing. For anybody still confused as to what he was doing.”

Jay’s “B-Sides 2” set is Webster Hall’s first show since it closed down for renovation in August 2017. Shout out to Hov for bringing the culture back to NYC in such a dope way.

Kelis Reportedly Going To Trial After Pleading Not Guilty To 20 Counts Of Violating Custody Deal With Nas

Kelis Pleads Not Guilty to Violating Custody Deal With Nas

According to The Blast, Kelis is headed straight to trial with her child’s father Nas after denying she violated their custody agreement by taking their son out of the country.

According to court documents, Kelis entered a plea earlier this week of not guilty to 20 counts of contempt. The trial has been scheduled for June 20, when Kelis could be sentenced to fines or even as harshly as jail time if the judge sees fit. Earlier this year Nas filed court documents wanting Kelis to be found in contempt and claimed she had violated their custody agreement over 17 times since last year.

In his affidavit for contempt, the rapper explained how Kelis had violated the terms that they set.

“In or around December of 2018, Petitioner (Kelis) moved to Cartagena, Colombia and took the minor child without my consent.”

Nas said Kelis told him she intends to stay in Colombia and planned to tend to a farm with her husband. He also wrote,

“On Christmas, (Kelis) informed me by text message that although her ‘plan’ had been to bring the minor child back to me in Los Angeles for New Year’s, the plan had changed. She then stated that the new plan was to come back on January 4, 2019.”

But she reportedly did not return to L.A. on January 4, instead, she made him wait until January 14 before bringing the child back into the States.

During this time Nas claimed that he was unable to reach or speak with his child when he was in Colombia.

Nas accused Kelis of knowingly violating the custody order and refusing to allow him to see his son. He also claimed Kelis refused to pay $8k in sanctions she was ordered to pay previously.

Is Kelis Trying To Migrate Her Milkshake & Nas’ Son To A Farm In Cartagena, Colombia?

Nas Claims Kelis Is Trying To Relocate Their Son To Colombia

Kelis seems to have plans of becoming a Colombian farmer, but Nas isn’t about to let that milkshake move too far if he can help it. According to a new report, the “Bossy” singer didn’t provide proper travel notice so the move might be a violation of her child custody agreement with the Queens rapper.

From TMZ:

“Nas is pissed off about a bunch of child custody issues — the biggest being Kelis’ plans to hightail to Cartagena. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Kelis already took 9-year-old Knight to Colombia last month. Nas says he was supposed to get their son on New Year’s Eve … but Kelis texted him to say the plan had changed. He says she didn’t come back to the states until Jan. 14.”

It seems she’s already been making moves on the low, low…

“Further, he says Kelis has told him she and her new husband have a farm in Colombia and she intends to stay there. Nas says she’s already withdrawn Knight from his private school in L.A. … and he says Kelis is currently homeschooling the kid in Colombia.”

Hopefully, they’ll be able to work this out for their son’s sake. In the meantime, Nas is making headlines after he reportedly signed a $340 million deal with Viacom to purchase Pluto TV. Catch up on that here.

Pluto TV is also compatible with almost every device with streaming capabilities, including Andriod and iOS devices, for a standard monthly rate.

Pluto TV is added to the list of startups that the legendary rapper has invested in. If you recall, the Queensbridge MC invested in Ring (the smart doorbell security system) that was acquired by Amazon; a move that netted him a cool $40 million.
