“I can’t say her name, but at the time I was dating this girl,” began Smith. Patrick then asked for the first letter of the mystery woman’s name, but Smith balked. “Nah, because it kinda makes it easy…we’re talking or whatever, and she comes to a game, and this other guy sits right next to her, [and] they’re quote unquote dating.”

While Smith doesn’t let on as to the identity of the woman, many folks are convinced he’s talking about Tahiry, while others think it’s Khloe K., and still others believe he’s referring to K. Michelle.

ScHoolboy Q Gifts Injured Fan Grammy Hoodie

Groovy Tony loves his fans. The Top Dawg Entertainment rapper recently caught wind of a die-hard supporter who suffered several injuries in a car accident while wearing her favorite ScHoolboy Q sweater and he surprised her with a special package.

“Behold, my most beloved @groovyq sweater that I wore on the day of the car accident,” she wrote in a candid post on Instagram. “That blood is from the scratches and gashes from the broken glass window pieces, especially the hole it made underneath my chin. The paramedics rushed to the scene as fast as possible, bless their souls for saving my life and rushing me to a Trauma1 hospital in Fresno.

“They told me they needed to cut up my sweater but I wouldn’t let them,” she added. “Even with my fractured ribs I somehow made myself strip this piece of clothing to save it. At the time I didn’t think of my concussion, shattered pelvis, fractured ankle, broken and dislocated toes, lacerated kidney and spleen, fractured ribs or my punctured right lung. No, I thought of @groovyq @topdawgent and how I was still finna rock this crippled or not.”

Q saw this post and offered some surprises. “How bout I send u 3 sweaters??” he wrote in a reply on IG. “Also I’ll send you tHe ‘GIRL POWER’ HOODY I WORE AT THA GRAMMYS!!! Ima Have my ppl get ya info for me… get well youngin.”

On Twitter, he added: “I got sum stuff for u…. sorry about wat Happened to u get well”

After her story began circulating, Baltazar celebrated Q’s positive message. “Hoova’s hoodie is making headlines because it spoke so much when he wore it to the Grammys aside his daughter who he dressed in a full Gucci suit,” she wrote. “The sweater was also one of a kind made by his designer: sewn, died, and printed for him to match his daughter for the event. I am so appreciative that I don’t falsely love a famous person for having zero talent or any impact on the world which is sadly so prevalent these days.”

ScHoolboy is currently working on the follow-up to last year’s Grammy-nominated Blank Face LP. Recently, he said it will show fans a “different side” of his personality. “This is more so my life after I made it to the point of ScHoolboy Q,” he explained. “I gave you me [on past projects], but I never gave you the other side of me, the father, the dude that’s actually happy, the dude that doesn’t be in the hood just hanging out, the dude that’s trying to put his homies in position now.”

Jay Z Blasts Modern Radio During Frank Ocean Interview

Earlier today, Frank Ocean launched blonded Radio on Apple Music’s Beats 1. So fans were shocked when Ocean’s surprise guest was none other than TIDAL owner and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee Jay Z.

Hova, one of the most celebrated artists of all time, appeared on the show in snippets, talking about the music business and the state of modern radio.

“Radio, for instance, is pretty much an advertisement model,” he said in one clip. “You take these pop stations. They’re reaching 18-34 young white female, so they’re playing music based on those tastes. They’re taking those numbers and going to advertising agencies. People are paying numbers based on the audience they have. These places are not even based on music. Their playlists are not based on music. A person like Bob Marley, right now, probably wouldn’t play on the pop station, which is crazy. It’s not even about the DJ discovering what music is best.”

In another clip, Jigga continued to talk about the effects of traditional music business models on artistry, seemingly praising Ocean for going independent.

“There should be a better way that music, musicians, radio, and these things that are supposed to be instruments for the arts, should exist and it shouldn’t be about advertisements,” he said. “The more times someone like yourself can bypass that, it’s better for the arts, and it’s better for the audience because you have to have a level of discipline and a belief to put music out in this place. People want to shoot for that and then they’re making music that’s not really conditioned to who they are so they can reach a certain platform.”

Frank and Jay have had a strong relationship for years. The two collaborated on songs like “No Church in the Wild,” “Oceans,” and “Made in America.”

Recently, Jay Z sold a 33 percent stake of TIDAL to Sprint for an unconfirmed sum. He also launched a venture capital fund with Roc Nation co-founder Jay Brown. On top of all of this, he and his wife Beyoncé are expecting twins and he is reportedly working on his own new album, expected this year.
