Breezy says he had no involvement in bottle-throwing fracas at New York City hot spot.

Trouble seems to keep calling Chris Brown and he hasn’t been answering, as of late.

Brown is denying any involvement in a New York City nightclub brawl early this morning (Sept. 11), that sounds a lot like his infamous bottle fight with Drake two years ago.

He was hosting an event at the VIP Room in the city’s Meatpacking District when a fight broke out at around 3:20 a.m. Bottles were thrown, one person was injured, but no arrests were made. According to the “New Flame” singer and a witness at the club, he had nothing to do with the melee.

"There was no brawl involving me or anyone from my camp last night at VIP room.The devil is in full effect at all times.  God is the way," he tweeted today.

This recent melee comes less than a month after Suge Knight was shot at a nightclub party hosted by Brown, who had no involvement in the incident.

While the negativity keeps trailing, Brown's focal point is walking a positive path, as he told Billboard recently. “I can say that I am only human and I have made mistakes. I can say that I try to live my life in the most true, honest way that I can. I am not perfect, no one is.”

Breezy’s new album, X, comes out next Tuesday (Sept. 16).

Detroit's hottest shoe salesman, Big Sean, has another new deal to celebrate this week. The Hall of Fame rapper is the latest Roc Nation signee, according to a tweet from the company's official account, and from Sean himself.

"Welcome to the Roc Nation family," the online announcement read.

"Glad to be apart [sic] of the Roc. And we still GOOD," Sean replied, confirming that in addition to his agreement with the house that Hov built, he'll keep his paperwork with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music label.

The Roc Nation deal is for management. The company also handles Rihanna, Meek Mill, DJ Mustard, and their flagship signee, J. Cole.

Sean is currently on a mini-tour promoting his new Adidas original, the Metro Attitude. No plans have been revealed as yet for the "Best Mistake" collaborator's next studio album, his third. He did however, add some G.O.O.D. news to his Roc Nation announcement. "New music...tomorrow," he tweeted Thursday (Sept. 11).

Childish Gambino has been on a roll this past week after releasing his original track “Candler Road” and assisting Logic’s on “Driving Ms. Daisy”.  Yesterday, Gambino took to Twitter and Instagram to announce his forthcoming “STNMTN KAUAI” mixtape. I would assume ‘STN MTN’ is referring to Donald Glover’s childhood stomping grounds of Stone Mountain, Georgia. Kauai is likely referring to Hawaii’s oldest island. Seems like it might be a double sided tape from the looks of the artwork. Also really left wondering what role Jaden Smith will play in the role of the Kauai side of the tape. A release date is still to come, so stay tuned

Taylor Gang leader Wiz Khalifa was among the defendants named in a lawsuit filed in West Virginia. Ryan Smith is suing Khalifa (born Cameron Thomaz), along with Rostrum Records, 4.0 Entertainment, Tunez and Cue LLC, Daryl Tyler Jr., Drew Ellison of HowFlyHipHop, Leyonne Pryce, Courtney Williams, and 40 unnamed others, for an alleged assault that took place on April 11, 2013.

 

 

According to The West Virginia Record, Smith claims he was attacked at the Tunez and Cue restaurant in Morgantown, and as a result he suffered a broken jaw and other injuries which led to him undergoing reconstructive surgery and dental work.

 

 

The suit states the defendants’ acts and omissions were the direct cause of Smith’s loss of income, disability, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. The complaint was filed on May 26 in Monongalia Circuit Court.

 

Smith says he attended the Taylor Gang Goodstock Tour event organized by Rostrum Records, 4.0, and HowFlyHipHop at Tunez and Cue. During an intermission Tyler and the unknown defendants allegedly started an “unprovoked” assault against Smith. The alleged attackers were said to be contracted by the named defendants.

Beyoncé is coming back to HBO, but instead of airing another music concert special, she's doing something a little different. Beginning June 29, the premium cable channel will air "Beyonce: X10," a series of four-minute performances taken from recently completed Mrs. Carter Show world tour.

 

 

The episodes will include Beyoncé's performances of "Blow/Cherry," "Drunk in Love," "Ghost/Haunted," "Flawless/Yoncé," "Get Me Bodied/Baby Boy/Diva," "Girls," "Heaven," "Partition," "Why Don’t You Love Me?" and "XO." Each new episode will air immediately before a new episode of "True Blood" on Sunday nights.

 

 

 

Beyoncé's last special for HBO was the 2013 autobiographical documentary film she directed, "Life Is But a Dream," which combined behind-the-scenes footage, private home movies and concert footage from her four-night revue in Atlantic City.

 

 

 

The first airing of the film had an audience of 1.8 million, which was the largest audience the channel had seen for a documentary in nearly 10 years.

DJ Funk Flex has had his fair share of beef lately. After going back and forth with Dame Dash the DJ has taken aim at fellow radio personality, Power 105’s DJ Envy. The Hot 97 host got personal with Envy posting a picture of a cease-and-desist letter from The Breakfast Club host’s attorney.

 

The picture’s caption said, “McGriff the Snitch aka lil power ranger always talking to police and lawyers sending over paperwork!!! #stoptalkingtopolice.” Envy went on to post a response on Instagram upholding the same letter, adding the following statement. “Now this is a Cease & Desist…. Full letter… No snitching, no police, no statements… this is a letter to a business… Stopping a coward from lying and making up stories…

 

Any TRUE Dad or HUSBAND would do the same… Chess not checkers… @djfunkflexYour a lying, worthless, jealous, pathetic, old man… we all know your going thru a lot.. But lying is not the answer.. You have been in this business to long to go out like a bitch!!!

 

You are 55 years old acting like a child… Be truthful with yourself bruh.. you are killing your legacy… We know your not tough, your not a thug, no fists, no gunplay just a man that likes to DJ… Be that man… We are excited Angie is part of the team and will continue to celebrate that…. I will not respond to your shenanigans again… Lights Out!!!”

 

This is not the first time the two have had issues. For years they have gone at it. Funk Flex’s beef with The Breakfast Club started when the morning show covered a story on Hot 97’s DJ Mr. Cee’s sex scandal with a transsexual.

As planned, All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony will file notice with the New York Knicks on Monday that he plans to exercise the early termination option on his contract and become a free agent on July 1, a league source told Yahoo Sports. Anthony has a Monday deadline to opt out of the $23.5 million deal for the 2014-'15 season.

 


Anthony is determined to explore free agency and will closely examine opportunities with the Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets, league sources said. New York can offer Anthony, 30, the most money and security -- a five-year, $125 million-plus contract -- but he's intrigued with the chance to join an immediate contender in Chicago and Houston, league sources said.

 

 

New York can't begin to get out from under its salary cap issues until next summer. Chicago and Houston have work to do to clear salary cap space to sign Anthony to four-year deals in the $90 million range but are working on contingencies to do so should Anthony decide he wants to sign with them.

It is rare that Hip Hop fans get the chance to see how some of their favorite rappers interact with each other off camera. Chuck D allowed the world to get a glimpse at his relationship with the late icon Tupac Shakur.
Chuck posted a picture to Twitter of a letter 2Pac supposedly wrote to him in September of 1995.

 

In the hand written note, Pac said he loves and respects Chuck, and he also asked the Public Enemy member if he would collaborate with him on a new program, song, and movie.
