Dame Dash Calls Out Kanye West
Former Roc-a-Fella CEO Dame Dash has been on a roll calling out industry cats as of late. And this time around, his once somewhat-humble signee Kanye West is in the hot seat. During a stop at Shade 45’s VIP Saturdays, the infamous champagne popper revealed a major gripe he has with Mr. Kardashian concerning his lack of support for the Roc’s now-detained co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke.
In 2012, Biggs was sentenced to five years in jail for drug trafficking and conspiracy charges, and Dame says Ye hasn’t even made a phone call to check up on the man who was one of the most instrumental figures in jumpstarting Yeezy’s career. “I’m a little tight with Kanye ’cause he hasn’t reached out to Biggs. I don’t like that sh!t. So Kanye, holla at me,” Dame said.
According to the original Champagne Papi (sorry Drake), the laidback boss of Roc-a-Fella was the one who pushed Dame to really pay attention to Kanye and his music. And now, this month’s GQ cover star has turned his back because he’s too busy keeping up with the Kardashians.

Beyoncé Teases Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer
While she hasn’t been starred in any films since he lent her voice to the kid-friendly animation Epic, Baddie Bey is still getting that movie money. No, she’s not kicking homewrecking hoochie ass like she did in Obsessed. But one can assume that Beyoncé will be featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming film adaptation of the bestselling porn book series, Fifty Shades of Grey. Mrs. Carter recently released a teaser of the movie’s official trailer—scheduled to drop this Thursday—to her Instagram account, along with a screwed version of her classic “Crazy in Love” line (“uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, oh, no, no”).

Former Destiny’s Child Member Farrah Franklin Arrested in South Carolina
This may be a hard one for some of you, but it’s time to strap on your thinking caps and try to remember the fourth Destiny’s Child member to join the group back in 2000, along with Michelle Williams, as a replacement for LeToya Luckett and Latavia Roberson. (Ya know, the child who lasted for a couple months before she got booted and her destiny came to an end?) Well, now that you have her face in mind, her name is Farrah Franklin, and although we may not have been hearing anything from her in the past few years, the justice system sure has.
At 5:00 Sunday morning, Ms. Franklin was arrested in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for disorderly conduct, and sources say Farrah had been hittin’ the bottle pretty hard. She was booked into the Horry County Detention Center and later released on bond, but this ain’t the first time that crazy juice got Destiny’s stepchild locked for disorderly conduct. Back in 2011, she was arrested in L.A. for the same misdemeanor. Let’s just hope she gets some help.
