The Shade Room posted a video of Cardi performing at Saturday’s Global Citizen Festival in New York City. One commenter criticized the performance, writing, “She has no stage presence.”

Hennessy Carolina IG Comment

Hennessy saw the comment and responded by insulting Minaj. “But Nicki be on drugs on stage looking like a crackhead,” she wrote.

This is the latest episode in the ongoing beef between the rappers. Cardi attempted to attack Minaj by throwing her shoe at a New York Fashion Week party. She also called her out on Instagram for trying to sabotage her career and speaking ill about her daughter, Kulture.

Minaj denied the accusations and clapped back at Cardi during her Queen Radio show. “She has built her career off of sympathy and payola,” she said, while issuing a warning. “You put your hands on certain people, you ‘gon die. Period!”

Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter V’ Headed for No. 1 Debut

Lil Wayne is returning to the charts in a big way.

The rap titan’s long-awaited album Tha Carter V is expected to debut at No. 1 on next week’s Billboard 200. According to HITS Daily Double, the album is on track to move 475-525,000 equivalent album units in its first week, of which 165-180,000 are traditional sales.

var Tynt=Tynt||[];Tynt.cmd=Tynt.cmd||[];
Tynt.cmd.push({publisherId:’c9kzpIBM0r6ik2aKlId8sQ’,
fn:function(){Tynt.ads.display(this.publisherId,’infeed’,

The combined 23 tracks on C5 earned 49.5 million streams in the first 24 hours on U.S. Spotify, marking the second largest debut in the history of the streaming platform behind Drake’s Scorpion (80.5 million). Tha Carter V has since surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify, according to Chart Data. Wayne also occupies 23 out of 25 of the top songs on Apple Music in the U.S.

While the numbers are impressive given Wayne’s seven-year gap in the Carter series, they are still a far cry from 2011’s Tha Carter IV, which sold 964,000 copies in its first week (prior to the streaming era).

After much anticipation, Tha Carter V arrived Friday featuring appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, Snoop Dogg, and the late XXXTentacion.

Elsewhere on next week’s charts, look out for Logic, whose album YSIV is projected to do 90-110,000 copies (45-55k traditional) in its first week. Meanwhile, Kanye West is expected to release his album Yandhi sometime this weekend.

Kanye West Delivers Pro-Trump Rant on ‘SNL’

Kanye West kicked off the season premiere of “SNL” as musical guest, but it was his off-air comments that had everyone talking.

After his closing performance of “Ghost Town” with Kid Cudi, 070 Shake, and Ty Dolla $ign, West delivered a speech in support of President Donald Trump, which was cut from the live broadcast due to time. The comments were captured on social media by audience members including Chris Rock.

var Tynt=Tynt||[];Tynt.cmd=Tynt.cmd||[];
Tynt.cmd.push({publisherId:’c9kzpIBM0r6ik2aKlId8sQ’,
fn:function(){Tynt.ads.display(this.publisherId,’infeed’,

h.parentNode.insertBefore(s,h);})();

Wearing a red Make America Great Again hat and standing in front of “SNL” cast members, he delivered an impromptu monologue after the credits rolled, which received boos from some audience members. “I wanna cry right now. Black man in America, you’re supposed to keep what you feel inside right now,” he said (via People). “And the liberals bully you and tell you what you can and cannot wear, where you and they can’t not stare. And they look at me and say, ‘It’s not fair. How the hell did you get here?’”

He went on to defend Trump against accusations of racism. “It’s so many times that I talk to a white person about this, and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s racist.’ Well, if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago. We don’t just make our decisions off of racism. I’ma break it down to you right now: If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don’t have to believe in all they policies.”

He continued, “Actually, blacks weren’t always Democrats. It’s like a plan they did to take the fathers out the home and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s the Democratic plan.”

After receiving a few claps, West added, “And what this shows is we can’t be controlled by monolithic thought. You can’t always have when you have a black subject matter like Cosby that you have to have a black comedian talk about it.”

He reiterated his plan to run for president in 2020. “And when I said I’m running in 2020, all my smart friends talked so much s**t about me. And when I saw that man win, I said, ‘See, I told you. I could have been there.’”

When an audience member yelled, “F**k Trump,” West responded, “Now you got a situation where we need to have a dialogue and not a diatribe because if you want something to change, it’s not going to change by saying, ‘F**k that person.’ Try love. Try love. Try love. Try love.”

He also addressed his controversial MAGA hat. “You see they laughing at me. You heard ’em, they scream at me, they bully me. They bullied me backstage they said, ‘Don’t go out there with that hat on.’ They bullied me backstage. They bullied me. And then they say I’m in a sunken place. You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’ma listen to y’all now.

Or I’ma put my Superman cape on, which means you can’t tell me what to do,” he said. “Follow your heart and stop following your mind. That’s how we’re controlled. That how we’re programmed. If you want the world to move forward, try love.”

Chris Rock, who recorded the speech for his Instagram Story, seemed to whisper “My God” at one point.

Following the “SNL” airing, some of Kanye’s peers including Questlove spoke out about his appearance. “Like i find it strange he isn’t trending at all, yet we all typing the same thing, but for all that ‘he cancelled’ talk there was an ounce of hope in our souls tonight,” said The Roots drummer. “But all we got was…well…I’m kinda sad man.”

Swizz Beatz also weighed in on Kanye’s Trump support. “I just seen that ‘SNL’ Kanye and I hate you talking about you being bullied for the hat,” he said. “It feels kinda funny ’cause we was just talking about the hat less than 48 hours ago. Teyana Taylor was in the studio, Ferg was in the studio, a bunch of people was in the studio. And I was just addressing how uncomfortable the culture feels with you representing somebody that’s blatantly hurting our people. Ain’t nobody bullying you, we love you. But you gotta stop that shit. That shit ain’t right.”

Despite the comments, Kanye has apparently been invited back to “SNL” by the show’s creator Lorne Michaels, but this time as host.

“had so much fun at SNL. Lorne agreed that I would host before the year is out,” tweeted Ye. “Need to set a date. Gonna be sooooooooo lit. In the words of Lil Pump …Esskeetit !”

Kanye West Performs with Kid Cudi, Lil Pump, & Teyana Taylor on ‘SNL’

Prior to releasing his new album Yandhi, Kanye West—or YE as he prefers to be called—returned to television to help kick off Season 44 of “SNL” with some special guests.

For the first performance of the night, YE teamed up with Lil Pump for a comedic performance of their hit “I Love It.” Inspired by the song’s lyrics, Kanye dressed as a Perrier bottle, while Pump was a Fiji water bottle. They danced on stage in costume as comedian Adele Givens was shown on the screen behind them.

For the second performance, Kanye brought out Teyana Taylor to perform “We Got Love,” one of the songs that didn’t make her album K.T.S.E. due to clearance issues. Teyana showed off her six-pack abs in a revealing sheer top, while YE stood alongside her. He forgot some of the lyrics, but laughed it off.

For the encore, Yeezy returned to close out the show with a performance of his ye track “Ghost Town” with Kid Cudi, 070 Shake, and Ty Dolla $ign. Wearing his redesigned MAGA hat, YE started off the song before Cudi and 070 Shake joined in, while Ty played bass. The show went overtime, so the end of the performance was cut during the live broadcast.

Yandhi is expected to drop tonight featuring appearances from XXXTentacion and 6ix9ine.
