Apparently, the rapper had agreed to headline at the festival and was paid $35,000 in advance. Yet the day of, the L.A. rapper did a no show for his set after he found out that he had been bumped down from the headliner spot.
According to Courthouse News, the game was wired a deposit before the show. Although, he didn’t show the rapper did not pay the amount back.

As most of you probably know, Snoop Dogg posted continuously on Instagram about Iggy Azalea yesterday. Not only was he posting images of her but he was continuously dissing her via social media.
Snoop began by posting a photo of Iggy without any makeup and this led to Iggy going on a Twitter rant about him basically saying that he was acting two-faced, that in person he acted like they were cool.
Instead of apologizing, Snoop decided to continue posting memes about the rapper and upsetting her even more. He even posted an image of Nicki Minaj with a caption that said Iggy doesn’t write her own raps.
Iggy then turned to Twitter to respond to Snoop’s behavior.
She tweeted, “for the record I only had an issue with the meme in the first place because he acts another way to my face, he even follows me. But the real joke here is the middle aged man who’s butt hurt I asked why he was pulling a Regina George move on social media.”
This afternoon Snoop took it upon himself to apologize to Iggy by saying, “I just got off the phone with my homeboy Tip, king of Atlanta, and it’s officially over. No more bad talk. I apologize. Yeah, I apologize. I won’t do it again.”

Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder; and his wife Priscilla Chan have announced on Tuesday that they will donate $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation.
The outbreak of Ebola in West Africa has infected at least 8,000 people and killed more than 4,000, which makes it the worst in history. The world Health Organization has estimated that they will need at least $1 Billion to stop it.
Zuckerberg’s donation will provide funds that are well needed, but how will they be used?
The CDC director Tom Frieden, said, “This significant contribution from Mark Zuckerberg and Dr. Priscilla Chan will help us rapidly advance the fight against Ebola.”
He then added that the generous donation “will provide flexible funding allowing [the] CDC to address the most pressing needs as the epidemic shifts and evolves.”
The donation is going to the CDC Foundation’s Global Disaster Response Fund, this will help address needs that are identified by the CDC.
“It’s easy to say Ebola is still small compared to other diseases of that it’s mostly in other countries and won’t affect us,” wrote Zuckerberg.
“But if we don’t get this under control soon, then it will spread and become an epidemic we have to deal with for decades to come," he added.
What do you think about his generous donation?
At the beginning of the year Wu-Tang Clan made headlines all over the United States when they announced that only one copy of their album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin would be released, the Clan has now announced a new strategy for the release of their new album, A Better Tomorrow.
Yesterday, RZA revealed that the album would be released around Black Friday or November 28, and that a limited edition Boombotix portable speaker would be released with five album tracks and three bonus tracks. He also added that only 3,000 would be made.
“I had the idea pop up into my head, for a while, about music being kind of disconnected to us. Of being so digitized and accessible, but yet not tangible,” said RZA as he described his motivation for the idea of the speaker.
“But this thing here, a tangible item, like your old Walkman or your old cassette, or your old record, that’s what this is bringing back,” he added.
What is your opinion on the idea of the speaker? Do you think it will be successful or a fail?
