Teyana Taylor Last Rose Petal…Farewell Tour

Last December, Teyana Taylor announced she would be retiring from music. Sharing her Spotify streams from the year 2020, she took to Instagram that despite appreciating her fans, the industry lacked to recognize following the release of her third studio project, The Album.

“I ain’t gone front in times of feeling super underappreciated as a artist, receiving little to no real push from the machine, constantly getting the shorter end of the stick, being overlooked, I mean the list on and on lol…”

Putting the nail in the coffin, Taylor has announced her farewell tour, “Last Rose Petal…Farewell Tour.” Starting Nov. 7 in San Francisco, the 12-date tour features stops in Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, and New York before wrapping Nov. 30 in Atlanta.

“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard…. However for every goodbye God makes the next hello closer,” Teyana told her fans. “Come out and watch me, leave it all out on the stage… One last time… Just for you & as my last rose petal falls, I say farewell…”

Tickets for Last Rose Petal…Farewell Tour go on sale Friday, Sept. 24 at 10 a.m.

Hit-Boy Back Working with Kanye West

Back in November, HS87 producer Hit-Boy revealed on the Rory & Mal podcast that he and Kanye West had a falling out and West tried to have him blacked balled from the industry.

“I haven’t been a fan of Kanye on a personal/ human level since he told me face to face he stopped picking my beats because I worked with Beyoncé,” Hit-Boy told Rory and Mal. “This is after I produced n*ggas in Paris , clique, and a myriad of other songs / projects for him and his label GOOD Music in the 2 years I was signed with them.”

However, Hit-Boy revealed today that he is officially back to working with Ye, presumably for DONDA 2. The producer was seen in the studio with him and The Game and was given production credit on Ye’s latest release, ‘Eazy.’

Jennifer Hough, the woman who was suing Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty for alleged harassment and intimidation in efforts to get her to recant her account that Petty sexually assaulted her, voluntarily dismissed her case against Minaj on Wednesday, January 12.

According to TMZ, there was no financial settlement that made Hough drop the case, however, Petty still remains a defendant, meaning the case against him is still active.

“The case was voluntarily dismissed as to Nicki in NY,” Hough’s attorney, Tyrone Blackburn said in a statement. “The case against Kenneth is ongoing. This does not mean that Nicki Minaj is in the clear. In fact, she’s probably in a worst position now than prior to when the case started. So, I would say, stay tuned.”

Petty was convicted of assaulting Hough in 1995 and served four years in prison. Hough spoke about the incident publicly on The Real, back in October.

Minaj has not addressed the dismissal, but tweeted a unicorn emoji in response to a tweet that quoted her verse on Tasha Cobb Leonard‘s 2017 release “I’m Getting Ready,” which read, “I don’t gotta talk the lord defends me.”

The Queen rapper’s attorney,  Judd Burstein, responded to the dismissal by e-mailing Hough’s lawyer.

“In my view, your conduct in pursuing this case against Nicki represents the worst of our legal system: bottom-feeding lawyers who pursue frivolous actions against a celebrity assuming that they will be paid off if they throw enough dirt.”

Judd continues, “You forced my client to spend over $300,000 in fees to defend a case which even my labradoodle, Gracie, could see was frivolous on both the facts and the law.”

Petty is to return to court in March for sentencing after accepting a plea deal back in August for failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California.
