Hip-hop is a tough game in which only the best survive. From the early days of the male-dominated genre, female rappers have proved that women, though few in numbers, are fearless, strong especially when unified and are not only capable of standing as tall as the next man but also of outshining them.
Many female rhymers, from Queen Latifah to Nicki Minaj, have destroyed the proverbial glass ceiling to become legends in their own right.
The 20-minute film covers the Memphis native’s trip across the country in preparation of his album release. Gotti’s new music project features Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Meek Mill. YFN Lucci, French Montana, and 21 Savage.
Nicki Minaj has been secretly sending money to help provide villagers in India with access to clean water and basic education.
The “Starships” hitmaker has taken to Instagram to post a video clip of a man showing off a new water well and expressing his thanks to donors including Pastor Lydia Sloley, the New York-based minister who first brought Nicki’s attention to the cause in 2015.
“This is the kind of thing that makes me feel the most proud,” she captioned the clip. “The money I’ve sent to this village in India for the last couple years (via my Pastor Lydia Sloley), has gotten them a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS.”
“We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some ppl (people) don’t even have clean water,” she continued. “Blessings to India. Our work is far from done. I’ll tell you guys more about my charity work in the near future in case you’d like to be a part of it. Love”.
Brown announced his induction into the Diamond Club by posting an official letter sent to him by YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki. In the note, Wojcicki praised his channel for becoming a “movement” and awarded him the Diamond Play Button.
PewDiePie sits atop the proverbial throne with the most subscribers on YouTube. The Swedish comedian currently has over 55 million subscribers.
The digital reach of Brown is a huge asset for promoting his music, including the upcoming double album Heartbreak on a Full Moon. Two weeks ago, CB unveiled the tracklist for the 40-track project, which is expected to drop later this year.
