Lala Kent’s Fiance Heads to Hospital With Heart Attack Symptoms Amid 50 Cent Feud

Lala Kent’s fiancé, Randall Emmett, headed to the hospital with chest pain amid the couple’s feud with 50 Cent.

According to a text message conversation posted by the rapper on Instagram on Friday, April 26, the movie producer was having health issues as their disagreement — over Kent and money — escalated.

“I said I’m sorry fofty [sic] I’m heading to emergency room Im not doing well Please don’t text me anymore,” Emmett, 48, wrote according to the screen grab. “This is too much for me I’m so hurt and not feeling well Now my ex is f–king with me after your post this is very bad for me on all levels going to er to make sure not having heart attack. Please fifty no more.”

As Us Weekly previously reported, the Vanderpump Rules star, 28, and the “Candy Shop” rapper, 43, got into a NSFW exchange on Instagram over the story of how she and Emmett first got together. 50 Cent posted a video of Kent telling costar Stassi Schroeder that Emmett sent her a car after “the first night we banged.”

The rapper, who starred in and coproduced the series Power with Emmett, captioned the video, “10 seconds left in the 4 quarter hoe’s are Winning. Do you want A range rover, yes, bitch yassss. Then just run out and suck a d–k. LOL smh.”

Kent — who got engaged to Emmett in September 2018, less than a year after they went public with their relationship — fired back in comments with, “She swears she’s a thug from south side Jamaica queens & she’s up in here watching Bravo. Someone has forgotten where they come from. Coming for me on the gram!? I smell fish coming from fifty’s direction.”

50 Cent claimed in his post that Emmett owes him a million dollars and he wants “the rest” of it by Monday.

In a second post on Friday night, he shared a screen grab of another text message exchange with Emmett, in which the Hollywood honcho said of Kent, “She is my fiancé and I asked you to be in My wedding last week.”

“What the f—k would you want me in your wedding for,” 50 Cent wrote back. “Like I ain’t got s—t else to do.”

He added in a caption that Emmett “sent me 250k today but I want all my money Monday,” adding, “if he ain’t got it he can put his Rolls Royce on the truck to NY.The friend s—t is over rated.”

On Saturday, April 27, the rapper shared a photo that showed the producer taking a selfie at an awards show as 50 Cent stood in the background and wrote, “look at this fool taking selfies, you better get me my money fool.”

Us Weekly has reached out to Emmett and Kent’s reps for comment.

Offset Says That Hip-Hop Heads Should Be Kissing The Migos’ Feet For Bringing Hip-Hop Mainstream — Gets Bashed By Lupe Fiasco!

Offset is making his rounds to promote his new album ‘Father of Four.’ After catching the attention of his baby mama for a comment made about the paternity of his daughter, the 27-year-old is ticking off some of the veterans of popular rap with his latest interview.

Offset chatted with Ebro of ‘Ebro in the Morning’ on Hot 97 about the hate that younger artists receive from the older generation. Although some of the most popular rap songs seem to be a poppin’ beat masking misogynistic and drug-filled references, the genre is the number one type of music listened to in this new age.

If you ask Offset, instead of hating, the hip-hop heads need to be thanking the new wave rappers for making it so mainstream.

“If you’re an older artist, you should be thanking us, kissing our feet. Not just the Migos… Hip-hop has never been the No. 1 genre ever. Right now when you go to Spotify, you’re not seeing the other genres [like] pop, country.”

View this post on Instagram

The disconnect…The Reconnect. Firstly let me say that I’m a huge fan of the Migos (specifically Emitt Smith & Fight Night. Also when I go to the club I only really get up and dance dance my little dance to Migos. True story) Secondly let me say that the only visceral problem with brother offsets statement is the use of the cliche “kissing feet”. That’s not a sign of respect that’s an act of subjugation of something lower to something higher and as Busta Rhymes told me when it comes to rap there are no classes, or superiors vs inferiors. We are all a team. Each with individual attributes that add their special skill set and energy to the whole. The metrics of industry don’t successfully define the essence of hiphop nor do they replace its legacy or the efforts of its pioneers who achieved great things with little to nothing in terms of materials (i.e. the internet and massive marketing budgets) and from that poverty of capital created a Culture, not a business, a legitimate Culture and were actively combatted by opposing forces from all walks of life. Streaming and selling records is only a part of the project that is hip hop. It’s a great feeling and milestone to sell a million records and be celebrated for that achievement. But it is just as great to be an amazing lyricist respected by thousands or just 1 for your abilities to craft amazing pieces of communication that can operate to influence society as a whole not just exclusively on a dance floor. Hip hop got its RESPECT from rappers who spoke truth to power and struck fear in the comfort zones of oppression and inspired folks to take a look at their surroundings, analyze and OVERCOME. Hip Hop isn’t respected because of how many records it has sold or how many dances it has created UNLESS WE TALM BOUT BREAKDANCING. Hip Hop is respected because it’s kisses nobodies feet. And never will. Our feet don’t belong on the mouths of our pioneers they belong on their shoulders. . . . The true rapper is the one who continues to do it when it’s no money, no fame, no cars, no jewelry…just the love of the craft that keeps them on that grind. That’s the bar. Everything else other than that is just filler and cap.

A post shared by Lupe Fiasco (@lupefiasco) on

The ‘Taste’ musician added: “Because of how streams is, people are listening to hip-hop more than any other time. So you should salute us, we made this bigger than it ever was. You fought for it, you set the tone, your style is just different.”

The problem that hip-hop veterans have with today’s popular songs is that you don’t necessarily have to have talent in order to have a successful career. With the right trendy look and a producer who can make a trap beat — almost anyone can be a rapper.

Additionally, many feel that the songs don’t have meaning the way that they used to. Lyricism is not as appreciated as it once was.

Lupe Fiasco shared his opinion on Offset’s recent remarks via Instagram in a lengthy caption that read, in part: “The metrics of industry don’t successfully define the essence of hip-hop nor do they replace its legacy or the efforts of its pioneers who achieved great things with little to nothing in terms of materials (i.e. the internet and massive marketing budgets) and from that poverty of capital created a Culture, not a business, a legitimate Culture and were actively combatted by opposing forces from all walks of life. Streaming and selling records is only a part of the project that is hip hop. It’s a great feeling and milestone to sell a million records and be celebrated for that achievement.”

What do you think about what Offset said? Is he being cocky or does he have a point?

Award-Winning Film ‘Charcoal’ Heads to National Museum of African Art Smithsonian Institution

Francesca Andre combined her experiences with colorism and passion for storytelling into Charcoal, an award-winning film which puts the spotlight on healing from prejudice, discrimination, and preferential treatment based on the skin tone, facial features, and hair textures among people of the same race. Now, her short film is making its way to the National Museum of African Art Smithsonian Institution as part of Skin Deep exhibit: Colorism across the African diaspora.



Black Enterprise caught up with Andre to learn more about her inspiration behind the film and hopes for changing the conversation about beauty in the black community.

BE: What inspired you to produce a film about internal colorism? Can you describe your personal experiences with this topic?

I wanted to tell a story about healing, about women redefining their own beauty and taking back their power despite the pervasive effects of colorism. I wrote Charcoal as I recalled these painful experiences and events with colorism growing up in Haiti. I was made aware of my skin tone and hair texture at a very young age. I noticed that people with lighter skin were praised and considered beautiful compared to others with darker skin. My grandmother joked that I got my “bad hair” from my father’s side of the family because her side of the family had very long and curly hair. While these conversations were common and seemed normal at the time, they slowly begin to erode one’s self-esteem and self-worth. I realized that I had internalized these toxic beliefs in my teenage years throughout my adulthood, so I had to unlearn all these toxic misconceptions about beauty, hair, and its relation to one’s worth. I am happy to say that I now have a very healthy relationship with my skin and hair.

Francesca Andre

BE: In your experiences, what are the impacts of internalized colorism, particularly when it comes to getting ahead in your career or managing healthy relationships?

As a woman photographer working to become a cinematographer, racism and sexism are more of a detriment to my career than colorism. I also think my experiences with internal colorism provide an opportunity for me as a storyteller to reverse the effects by changing the light skin vs. dark skin narrative. Representation in film is important and is a powerful tool to bring attention to these issues.

BE: Charcoal spotlights the fact that beliefs about skin color are passed down in families. In prior interviews, you’ve said “Despite the #melaninpoppin and #blackgirlmagic hashtag movements meant to uplift all shades of blackness, there’s still work to be done. When it comes to colorism, what do you think we as a community need more of or less of?

We need to talk more about it. It’s dirty, it’s taboo and it’s destructive. Just because it’s not always right in your face doesn’t mean it’s not happening. These movements are great at bringing issues to light, but there are also many communities that are not aware of these conversations. Today there are very popular Internet figures in my community who are selling bleaching creams. As long as “light skin” continues to be the standard of beauty, women will continue to bleach their skin as a way to adapt and survive. However, if we celebrate every hue and hair texture, not just the 3C curly hair, we might be able to change minds and change the way that people perceive themselves and their beauty. America can take the lead in this plight.

BE: What are the top two messages you want people to take away from the film?

Healing takes time. These beliefs didn’t happen overnight and it will take time for you to unlearn the lies that you were taught and have internalized about the color of your skin, your hair texture, your voice, your existence as a woman of color. Self-love is a hell of a weapon! Use it, practice it, apply it, and pass it on to your friends, colleagues, and children. Break the cycle!

Trump’s Biggest Fan, Kanye West, Heads to the White House Today

Drew Angerer

One of the many baffling phenomena of the Trump era has been the readiness of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to hang out with the president, despite his overt and well documented racism and sexism.

The process will reach its peak today when Kanye West drops in for lunch and then witnesses the signing of a new bill to update the way music royalties are paid to take account of the impact of streaming services.  

Kim, of course, has already called into the White House for her photo op with Trump (who once said she had a ‘fat ass‘) as part of her successful campaign to secure a pardon for a grandmother caught up in drug conspiracy.

Ex-ESPN Host Jemele Hill Heads To ‘The Atlantic’

Jemele Hill

Source: WENN / WENN

That didn’t take long. After recently saying “peace out” to ESPN, Jemele Hill has a new gig at The Atlantic

Yesterday (Oct. 1), the publication made the announcement that Hill would be getting down as a staff writer. Hill will be tasked with “covering the intersection of sports, race, politics, gender, and culture,” per the Atlantic‘s editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg.

“The Atlantic made perfect sense to me because during this period, it’s critical to be aligned with people who understand this mission: Sports is a great entry point for exploring what’s happening in the wider society,” said Hill via a press release. “You can’t talk about sports without talking about race, class, gender and politics. I want to explore the complications and discomforts with a publication that has a long history of supporting this kind of work.”

Recently, Hill departed ESPN but not before securing a sizeable bag. Reportedly her buyout from the network, where she worked for over a decade, was worth a cool $ 6 million.

Hill became a flashpoint at ESPN after her comments regarding NFL protests got her suspended and even the attention of Donald Trump and the White House.

Nevertheless, she was named the 2018 Journalist of the Year by the NABJ.

Hill starts her new job at the Atlantic next week and she will be based out of Los Angeles.
