Paparazzi started filming Future while he was out for dinner but refused to stop when he asked. In response, the rapper got into his car and took off, throwing a cup of water at a photographer as he drove past.

Juvenile‘s complaints have worked in his favor. Though initially left off the Essence Festival lineup, the rapper revealed he’s now on the bill.

Kid Cudi called out Apple Music for publishing the wrong lyrics to his single “Porsche Topless.” “I put in the time to write out all my lyrics and send them to u.
