Diddy & DJ Khaled to be judges on an upcoming Hip-Hop show on FOX.

Diddy & DJ Khaled are deep in negotiations with Fox for a new talent competition show called “The Four.” While neither have officially signed on yet, sources told TMZ both are far along with the process.

TMZ reports that the show, “The Four,” will consist of 4 judges just as the title depicts. Diddy would serve as the mogul, DJ Khaled as the producer, and there’s two more spots available, one of which will be a songwriter, and the fourth judge will be a performer. At least one of the remaining two spots will be a woman they say as well, and rightfully so.

The focus of the show will be contemporary pop with an emphasis on hip-hop. It will be an ongoing battle, with new competitors trying to knock out the front-runners. In the end, the winner will get the entire judges panel behind them to launch their music career… a mogul, a producer, a songwriter, and someone to perform onstage with.

Lil Wayne Reportedly Released From Hospital Following Seizures

Lil Wayne was hospitalized in Chicago on Sunday (September 3) in connection with epileptic seizures, but the Young Money rapper has reportedly been released from the hospital. Doctors are suggesting the hardworking artist take a break for awhile until he’s back in top form.

Although many people speculated his seizures stemmed from his use of Lean (or Purple Drank), sources close to Wayne told TMZ the seizures were due to a hectic schedule and sleep deprivation, and not because of the codeine-laced drink.

On Monday (September 4), his daughter, Reginae Carter, assured fans on Twitter Weezy was “doing fine.”

Wayne is reportedly taking two weeks off, but will perform his next show on September 23.

Lil Wayne was found unconscious in a Chicago hotel room on Sunday (September 3) after suffering at least one seizure, according to TMZ. The Big Easy native was rushed to Northwestern Memorial hospital, where he reportedly had another seizure.

Wayne was scheduled to perform with Rae Sremmurd at the Drais Beachclub in Las Vegas later that evening, but doctors advised him to remain hospitalized. Wayne’s reps told TMZ his Vegas performance was canceled so he can rest.

Wayne has been plagued by seizures for years. One of his first documented episodes was in 2012, when a Los Angeles bound jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Texas after Wayne reportedly had a seizure. Although his team denied it at the time, the illustrious rapper had yet another seizure the following day.

In 2013, he finally confirmed he has epilepsy. In an interview with Power 106, Wayne explained,”This isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures. Y’all just never hear about them. But this time, it got real bad because I had three of them in a row.”

Master P Thinks His New Co-Ed Basketball League Can Beat Some NBA Teams

Master P is working hard on his Global Mixed Gender Basketball league, and it looks like they might be a real force to beat in the world of sports.

The No Limit CEO speaks with TMZ about his co-ed league, which is gearing up to start their season in the near future, and claims that his teams may be able to give NBA teams a run for their money.

“I feel we could beat a couple NBA teams,” Master P explains. “You guys gotta see how good we is and how fast-paced.”

If you recall, the hip-hop mogul has a star-studded staff as part of the league, which he co-owns with Tiny Harris. So far, he’s signed on Lisa Leslie as a head coach, with former NBA stars on board such as Metta World Peace, Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis, as well as the Gonzalez twins. So far, there are just three teams in the league, but we should be seeing a growth down the line as the games start to play out.

The GMGB league is going to also be extremely helpful in giving back, as each community that gets involved will equate to the league donating one scholarship to a high school male graduate and one to a high school female graduate.

Young Jeezy Sued and Accused Of Murder

The heirs of slain concert promoter Eric Johnson are suing Young Jeezy, accusing the rapper of killing their father.

Johnson was shot dead backstage at a Jeezy and Wiz Khalifa concert in Mountain View, California in 2014, and now his family is calling for justice.

The dead promoter’s kids claim an eyewitness told Mountain View police officials the shooter looked like Jeezy, and the witness repeated that claim in a deposition – and picked the rap star out of a photo line-up as the killer.

A second witness described the shooter to a police sketch artist, who drew someone that looked “eerily similar to the way Young Jeezy looked” according to TMZ.
