"One time [Beyonce] jumped off of a ledge and came running over cause she thought me and Jay had issues. And I'm like, 'What the f**k? Did she really just jump and run up on me like that?'" the 38-year-old rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, told The Breakfast Club on New York City radio station Power 105.1.

The 32-year-old beauty became very protective of Jay because she thought things were about to turn physical between him and the "Candy Shop" hitmaker, but they soon laughed off the dispute.

Jay Z Extortion Case Dropped

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues

Jay ZJay Z is no longer seeking extortion charges over his old recordings.

Producer Chauncey Magan was detained last month after the "99 Problems" hitmaker's label Roc Nation accused him of stealing master tapes in 2002 and demanding $110,000 for their return, but as the rapper doesn't want to pursue charges, Los Angeles police are no longer investigating the case. However, according to TMZ, LAPD officers will hold on to the recordings until a civil judge tells them otherwise.

Mahan - who was interning at Roc Nation when the recordings were made - previously claimed he had been asked by the record label to keep track of the music because the 44-year-old star was just "a stupid kid smoking blunts" at the time, and was reckless with his intellectual property. The producer also insisted he repeatedly told Roc Nation he had the masters - which include "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)" and "Holla" - over the last decade and only requested the money when he could no longer afford to pay the storage fee.
He claims he only asked for the cash as compensation for keeping the recordings for 12 years in Northridge, California.

The 27-year-old singer "flipped out" at the rapper, 44, in an elevator at the Met Gala after-party in New York last week because she was offended by a comment he made. "Solange flipped out over something Jay had said, that she took the wrong way. She took it too hard or too far. Not sure what it was, but she greatly overreacted," a source said.

Solange was caught on surveillance kicking and clawing her brother-in-law as they left the bash held in the Boom Boom Room at The Standard Hotel in New York City, last Monday. Jay didn't appear to retaliate as the brunette beauty screamed in his face, but he did attempt to hold her hands down as their bodyguard struggled to hold her back.

Beyonce appeared to stay calm and collected throughout the scuffle and watched on helplessly as her sister violently attacked her husband.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Features

Dr. DreDr. Dre could be set to become hip-hop's first billionaire.

The rapper and producer is in talks to sell his Beats Electronics headphones business to technology giant Apple for $3.2billion, making him the richest hip hop star in the world, according to the Financial Times.

In a recent article in Forbes magazine, Dre ranked as the second wealthiest rapper, behind Puff Daddy, whose estimated worth is $700 million, but the new deal would put him ahead of the star, who has earned money from his Revolt TV business as well as music.

Dre prematurely described himself as "the first billionaire in hip hop" in a video posted on Instagram, which has since been taken down, as the Forbes.com claims he would only cash in on his 20 to 25 per cent stake in the business, meaning his net worth increase from $550 million to about $800 million.

The "Drunk In Love" hitmaker and Jay Z are now in total control of her career after ditching Live Nation executive Faisal Durrani, although her husband doesn't hold an official professional position.

"Jay has been heavily involved in Beyonce's career for years, and was instrumental in organizing the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. But he isn't officially regarded as her manager - she really is independent," a source said.

"Now the couple have Blue, she wants to make sure her family come first at all times, especially as there's talk of them adding to the brood.

On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought," the "Holy Grail" hitmaker wrote on his Life and Times Blog on Tuesday.
