CARDI B ACCUSED OF ORDERING AN ASSAULT ON TWO WOMEN OVER OFFSET – (09/03/2018)
Cardi B has been accused of ordering a beatdown of two women that she thinks have been sleeping with her husband, rapper Offset. According to TMZ, Cardi has allegedly been threatening Baddi Gi — a bartender at the strip club Angels NYC, for months. Baddi G’s sister Jade is Offset’s alleged “side piece.” Cardi saw Jade and Baddi G and that’s when bottles and chairs started flying.
The sisters are saying that Cardi saw them behind the bar and ordered her crew to attack them with chairs and bottles and fists and it caused “serious injuries that required medical attention.” Baddie Gi confirms she saw Cardi B throw “at least one bottle” during the altercation.
The girls have hired prominent attorney Joe Tacopina — who is mulling over filing a suit against Cardi and others. Tacopina told Theybf.co that both of his clients plan to file a police report and Cardi will be named.
Meanwhile, Cardi went on Instagram and denied having anything to do with the incident.

G-EAZY RESONDS TO MACHINE GUN KELLY WITH ‘BAD BOY’ – (09/03/2018)
Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive.
G-Eazy has responded to Machine Gun Kelly with a diss song called “Bad Boy.” Last week, MGK stopped by a radio show and dropped a freestyle taking shots at G-Eazy, claiming that he stole his style and that he slept with G-Eazy’s girlfriend Halsey.
On “Bad Boy,” G-Eazy spits, “I answer to no one, nobody can get control of me / MGK, please stop trolling me / Get over me. You wanna be me, you’re mad that you’re not as big as me / I’m everywhere, I’m your nightmare / You can’t get rid of me.”
He continued, “I headline arenas and all of my shits go platinum / You never seen a plaque and your last shit did 30,000 / It’s not a competition / I’d heard you if I start bragging. I’m headlining, heard you opening up for Fall Out Boy / Don’t play with my name, you f*cker / I said it’s not a toy / Disrespect her again, I’ll smack you / I’m not a boy.”
On MGK and Halsey’s relationship, G-Eazy rapped, “‘Him & I’s’ on, bet you’re listening to Halsey sing to me / Can’t f*ck with nobody with so much negative energy / A pillar in this game, bro, I’ll be here until infinity / Ask myself why am I entertaining a mini me / You’re so below my class, you’re reaching, you’re not offending me.”
G-Eazy and MGK have been beefing for some time now. When G-Eazy debuted his blond hair at the ESPY Awards, MGK threw a shot, tweeting, “holy sh*t just be yourself homie” with the laughing emoji.
