Welcome to #InMyFeed, ESSENCE’s daily digital show that offers you a cheat sheet of the hottest topics already on your timeline.
Rapper beef is all the rage these days. First up, is the slightly aged beef between rappers Ja Rule and 50 Cent. Their beef has a little bit of history, reportedly starting in the 90s, making its way into our present by way of 50 Cent behaving badly. The rapper reportedly purchased 200 front row tickets so that the show would appear empty.
We caught up with the rapper on the red carpet of Nobody’s Fool and asked him why he did Ja Rule like that? Check out the video for 50’s response.
In more beef news, Cardi B. versus Nicki Minaj just might be coming to a close. The two rap goddesses went back and forth—first Nicki on her Apple Music Queen Radio station and then Cardi on Instagram. After Nicki liked a bunch of negative social media posts about Cardi and Cardi revealed that her sister, Hennessy Carolina’s phone number was leaked and Cardi’s daughter, Kulture’s life was threatened, both women decided they’d had enough.
Nicki tweeted that she wants to focus on “positive things” and has nothing more to say about the “nonsense.” Good! Can’t we all just get along?
And finally, our forever queen, Ava DuVernay recently announced that she’s working on a Prince documentary with Netflix. Ava and The Purple One?! This is going to be epic! What stories from Prince’s life would you like to see played out in this documentary? Check out the story for more details.
