Cardi B‘s daughter, Kulture, is well fed, according to a post about her school lunch. The post included photos of her mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, fruit, cereal, flavored milk and other treats. “Kulture school lunch be everything,” Cardi tweeted.
Kendrick Lamar was spotted at the University of Arizona Global Campus, where he attended his sister’s graduation. Kayla Duckworth graduated Sunday with a bachelor’s degree in marketing.
Ice Spice reunited with Taylor Swift for the deluxe version of her album Midnights. “I’m a massive fan of this brilliant artist and after getting to know her I can confirm: she is THE ONE to watch,” Swift announced. “Karma Featuring the incredible @icespice will be out TOMORROW night at MIDNIGHT ET.”
Dame Dash believes the rap crew he helped found is the greatest of all time. During an appearance on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast, he said Roc-A-Fella was the best crew, noting, “For me, the criteria is making a rapper a billionaire.” “It gave me the life I have now,” he said, adding people “still talk about the crew like it was yesterday.”
Ice Cube was a guest on the Earn Your Leisure podcast, where he shared his belief that his song “No Vaseline,” aimed at former group N.W.A., is one of the best diss tracks of all time. 2Pac‘s “Hit ‘Em Up,” Nas‘ “Ether,” Boogie Down Productions‘ “The Bridge Is Over” and Kool Moe Dee‘s “Let’s Go” round out his top five.
Tamar Braxton‘s cooking up some new music. “I’m still working on me,” she sings in an Instagram clip of her in the studio. Her last song was “Changed,” released back in March.
