Suge Knight has recently criticized Master P for his alleged misrepresentation of events concerning his visit to Knight in prison and the acquisition of Snoop Dogg’s rights for No Limit Records.
Ahead of the launch of his podcast, “Collect Call With Suge Knight,” from his prison confinement, Knight dropped a teaser disputing Master P’s narrative. In the preview, Knight disputes the notion that Master P visited him in prison to secure Snoop’s rights for a $2 million deal.
Knight stated in the clip, “[Master P] slipped up and said he came to visit me in prison, gave me a couple of bucks — $2 million I never would have taken for Snoop.” He emphasized that Master P wasn’t approved for a visit and that the deal with Snoop was executed through Bryan Turner at Priority Records.
Following Snoop Dogg’s tenure at Death Row Records, he transitioned to Master P’s No Limit Records in March 1998. Snoop has credited Master P with “saving his life,” a sentiment he expressed during an interview with The Breakfast Club in 2020.
According to Snoop, he planned to release an album titled “F*ck Death Row” and received an offer from Mack 10 for a million dollars to produce it. However, Master P intervened, granting Snoop $35,000 and advised him not to pursue the controversial album, stating, “You ain’t gon’ live to see that album out.”
In separate interviews, both Snoop and Master P have emphasized the impact of the No Limit Records deal, with Master P expressing that he saved Snoop’s life by intervening when Snoop was about to sign with another label at Suge’s behest. Snoop’s tenure at No Limit Records concluded in 2006, following which he moved to Geffen Records.
Cam’ron Reveals Why He’ll Never Date Erykah Badu
Cam’ron, the legendary rapper known for his unfiltered opinions, recently discussed his stance on dating and made it clear that Erykah Badu is off-limits for him.
During the latest episode of his show “It Is What It Is,” co-hosted with Ma$e, Cam’ron delved into the topic of Badu’s rumored romantic influence, expressing his determination to resist her allure.
Referring to Badu as “André 3000’s baby mom,” Cam’ron emphasized the transformative effect she allegedly has on men, warning against falling under her spell.
“She’s a homie too, but I told n-ggas, ‘She can’t get nowhere near me with that pussy,'” he asserted. “That shit she be doin’ to n-ggas is crazy. N-ggas be regular up until they fuck her. Then you start wearing turbans, yarmulkes, the tie-dye shirts. No, no, no! You got to chill.”
Cam’ron likely alluded to Common’s notable style transformation during his relationship with Erykah Badu in the early 2000s, suggesting her influence transcends mere romantic connections.
Badu herself addressed the rumors surrounding her romantic prowess during an appearance on The Tamron Hall Show last year, humorously noting that she often wears a hat to downplay her alleged powers.
But Badu emphasized that her “magic” extends beyond romantic relationships, affecting “women too, and children and animals.” She maintained that her true power lies in her intellect rather than physical attributes.
In other news, Cam’ron hinted at the possibility of taking “It Is What It Is” on a live tour, suggesting a potential road trip by the end of February or March.
Additionally, fans can anticipate new music from Cam’ron and Ma$e, as the duo has collaborated on new tracks, with Ma$e having the final say on their release.

Rihanna, known affectionately as RiRi, celebrated her birthday on Tuesday (February 20), prompting Minaj to share her admiration for the Bajan superstar, with whom she has collaborated on hit songs like “Fly” and “Raining Men.”

While Minaj recently hinted at a collaboration with Rihanna on the deluxe version of her Pink Friday 2 album, teasing fans with the promise of “gag city deluxe” once Rihanna sends her vocals, no official track has been released yet.
Minaj has been vocal about her respect and admiration for Rihanna, especially after Rihanna announced her pregnancy in 2022. In a now-deleted Instagram post, Minaj expressed her joy for Rihanna, celebrating her accomplishments and wishing her happiness in this new chapter of her life.
In a recent interview, Minaj opened up about her long-standing admiration for Rihanna, highlighting her as one of the two women she has looked up to in the music industry, alongside Beyoncé.
However, Minaj stirred controversy with recent comments referencing Rihanna’s past experiences, including her 2009 assault by then-boyfriend Chris Brown. While discussing her rap rival Megan Thee Stallion in a conversation with Joe Budden, Minaj compared Rihanna’s response to her assault to Megan’s handling of Tory Lanez’s shooting incident, applauding Rihanna for her resilience and refusal to dwell on the past.
Despite the controversy, Minaj’s birthday tribute to Rihanna underscores the deep respect and admiration she holds for the music icon.

21 Savage Unveils New Look, Drawing Comparisons to Don King, Amid Controversy
21 Savage has surprised fans with a dramatic new look that appears to pay homage to the iconic boxing promoter Don King. However, reactions to the rapper’s transformation have been mixed, with some struggling to appreciate his vision.
In an Instagram post shared on Monday (February 19), the “Bank Account” artist showcased a bold new appearance, accompanied by a wide grin, likening himself to Don King in the caption. Notably, 21 Savage seemed to have abandoned his trademark locs, a departure from his usual style — although he has experimented with different looks in the past.
While some fans appreciated 21 Savage’s daring change, others couldn’t resist poking fun at his transformation. One fan humorously posted a GIF of Sideshow Bob from The Simpsons, while another jokingly inquired about the whereabouts of his bonnet, a reference to a common hair accessory. Another fan playfully referenced a recent controversy involving Adin Ross, teasing, “me after scamming adin ross.”
Setting aside the Don King-inspired appearance, 21 Savage has been embroiled in controversy following a purported “scam” involving Adin Ross, which gained traction after the rapper’s subsequent launch of dice and card decks.
The controversy initially erupted when 21 Savage allegedly attempted to defraud Ross of $120,000 during a high-stakes card game on the streamer’s platform. Ross raised concerns after discovering marked cards used during the game, leading to speculation about foul play.
Subsequently, the rapper’s official website began selling branded dice and card decks, prompting speculation that the entire controversy may have been a calculated marketing ploy. Fans theorized that the feud with Ross was orchestrated to bolster 21 Savage’s image and generate publicity for his new merchandise.
While the specifics of the controversy remain subject to speculation, it underscores the blurred lines between authenticity and marketing tactics in today’s entertainment landscape. As fans continue to dissect the events, 21 Savage’s bold new look and the accompanying controversy have undoubtedly sparked conversations across social media platforms.
