The Le'Nalors News of The Week - What's Trending


LL COOL J had presumably pumped the brakes on his upcoming album due to issues with the recording process, but now he’s given a more precise explanation of what happened.

The Queens rap legend took to his Twitter page on Wednesday (February 22) to announce that he would no longer drop his 14th studio album, stating that more work needed to be done on the album.

In a series of now deleted tweets, he revealed that he’s still “trying to figure this album out” and followed that up with a post that read, “just not feeling like this album is worthy of being released [facepalm emoji] I tried.”

He also added: “not dropping it.”

However, LL COOL J returned hours later to clarify that the project is still moving forward and tagged Q-Tip, who’s serving as executive producer. Mr. Smith also trolled fans with a boisterous reason behind the delay with the album.

“Okay so everyone’s been asking me about the new record and my decision and I was considering not putting the album out because IT’S TOO FUCKING GOOD,” LL said in the clip. “Q-Tip you a genius baby this my favorite album I ever made. I can’t wait for y’all to hear this. Tracklist coming soon.”


Nicki Minaj has announced that Queen Radio will return and promoted the moment by showcasing a new striped bikini.

In the candid thirst trap, the Pinkprint rapper can be seen lounging on an armchair while scrolling on her phone. She announced that Queen Radio would return on March 3.

Queen Radio initially launched on Beats 1 Radio in 2018 to promote her fourth studio album of the same name. Nicki announced she had left Apple Music in 2021 after fellow podcast host Joe Budden asked what was the status of Queen Radio during an episode of his beloved show.

According to Nicki, Global Creative Director of Apple Music, Larry Jackson gave his blessing for the rapper to explore new channels, and she announced last March that she’d be bringing the radio program to the Amazon app in an exclusive partnership.

“#QueenRadio 3/3 @3pm PST Bad gyal don’t die die die. Hunnit rounds on dat gratata,” Nicki wrote.


Big Gipp has questioned whether DJ Khaled is actually as talented as people claim, while stating that the Miami-based producer is far from being “the best.”

The comments came in an interview with The Art Of Dialogue,where the Goodie Mob rapper said Khaled undoubtedly has talent, but that T-Pain deserves more praise.

“DJ Khaled is great at what he do,” Gipp said. “But I can turn around and look at a person that’s the real artist and that’s T-Pain. T-Pain really came through and really took it to another level. Song after song, hit after hit. Wrote, produce, singing, I just fuck with them type of artists, bro.”

He continued: “The ones that learned how to put together records because they were sitting besides somebody and figured out, ‘OK, this is how you put a record together. Then the next thing is me just being friends with everybody so they would rap on my music. The first time that I really got to popping was because I got a relationship with T-Pain and he gave me a hook, and after that hook my career took off.’

“But everytime you say you the best and I’m like, the first record that you can say that … that’s T-Pain. That’s not you. So I don’t understand. I don’t understand. It’s like shit, bro. I feel you, but when they say play your biggest records I hear nothing but that n-gga voice. So did you produce the track? Did you write the hook?

“But you producing how a record company produce it … but don’t be telling me you the best at what? Putting a record together? I ain’t mad at none of that. But all I’m saying is if you the best, if you the greatest, get out here and show me you can tour without any of them people rapping on your muthafuckin’ record.”
