The “American Idol” judges tells MTV News she’s “lyrically better” than most male rappers, but doesn’t get the credit she deserves. The Queen “barb” claims she’s underrated compared to male rappers because “men run the hip-hop game.” She says men in the rap industry don’t want to recite feminine verses because they will “feel funny.” READ MORE

Yesterday LL Cool J, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Busta Rhymes and Mary J. Blige were among the extended family members who helped lay hip-hop manager Chris Lighty to rest (Wednesday) at his funeral in Manhattan. An emotional LL — who had once been a client of Lighty’s — told MTV News after the service that his former manager was a “jewel” and a “treasured person in the community.” The rapper added that Lighty was an “architect of our culture,” but he was also a friend. During the ceremony, Q-Tip, Busta Rhymes and other artists also shared their personal memories of Lighty. The 44-year-old died last Thursday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

JackThreads co-founder, Jason Ross, grabbed the one and only Dwayne Michael “Lil Wayne” Carter, Jr. at MAGIC Marketplace in Las Vegas to talk about TRUKFIT, Weezy’s new skate-inspired line.

Nicki tweeted:  READ MORE
