Frank Ocean Calls Miguel’s Music “Sloppy”

Looks like we’ve got a full on war of words between Frank Ocean and Miguel. The Odd Future crooner clapped back after the Cali-born singer said his own music is better. Taking to his Tumblr page, Ocean posted some lyrics that don’t name names, but are pointed directly at his rival. “You could stay seated/I’m taking that Grammy. Your music is sloppy. N-ggas is heated/They keep on repeating the evening in slow mo,” Ocean wrote, nodding to Miguel’s non-acknowledgment of Channel Orange’s 2013 Grammy win over Kaleidoscope Dream. Bars! Let’s see if these make it onto Ocean’s anticipated new album.

DMX Is Going to Jail (Again)

The Dog is back in the doghouse. DMX was sentenced to six months in jail last night (July 14) after racking up $400,000 in unpaid child support. The 44-year-old rapper, who’s been in and out of legal trouble through much of his career, was nabbed last month just before he was schedule to perform at Manhattan’s Radio City Music Hall. DMX hasn’t yet publicly commented, but Shaggy shed some light on the sentencing via Twitter. “It comes with sadness and regret,” Shaggy tweeted, “But DMX will not be attending this year #shaggfest. —  he got locked up today for 6 months.”
