Are vodka wars the new hip hop beef? And are Serena Williams and Drake an item? That and more in the latest hip hop news this week. The 411 at 4:11 is the best way to catch hip hop weekly news. This week: Serena Williams and Drake, French Montana vs 50 Cent vs Diddy, Gucci Mane on LinkedIn, and we remember Aaliyah. Check out this week’s top four stories in our weekly news roundup.
First, the French Montana vs. 50 Cent vs. Diddy saga continues. French posted a video of him dumping a box full of Effin Vodka in the trash. 50 retaliates by posting some shocking allegations against French and members of Diddy’s inner circle. Hmmm, seems like Vodka wars might be the new rap beef.
Next up, how many of you miss Gucci Mane while he is on… “hiatus”? Well, you don’t have to miss him anymore! Gucci Mane can now be found on LinkdIn! For those that don’t know, LinkdIn is the popular business networking site. I wonder what useful information Gucci’s business profile offers… How to clean your gold teeth? How to violate parole? How to put out countless mixtapes from jail?
Our third story: this week we remember the life of the beautifully talented Aaliyah. 14 years ago we lost Aaliyah to a tragic plane accident. Her unexpected passing shook hip hop to its core. Rest in Peace Babygirl, we will always miss you.
Okay, back to Drake and Serena: Recently they’ve been spotted together globetrotting at several of Serena’s tournaments, including her win and Wimbledon. This week, photos surfaced of the two swapping spit in a restaurant in Cincinnati. Meanwhile, Serena’s friends are hating on them rekindling their romance. They’re warning Serena to stay away from the “Thot Lovin’” lightskin lover.
