Make it out this town
She bad bad
Hot Dog!!!! Now you know DivaWhispers does not like MESS and that’s just what this is. DivaWhispers has much respect for Jay Z, his wife Beyonce and Foxy Brown. With that being said my girl Foxy has opened up a can of worms that I don’t think she will be ready to handle when it comes back to her. Details inside……
Our friends over at TattleTailzz are reporting that Foxy Brown (after a long hiatus) is starting some rumors about her mentor who jump started her career Jay-Z.
Foxy Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, has revealed that her ticket to rap success came at a price — and that it all happened while she was underage. She says the man who put her on to the rap game, Jay Z (then 27-years-old), took her virginity when she was just 15-years-old — adding Hova (who she says has a ‘horse d*ck’) funded her shopping trips and pampering at hair and nail salons while she was still in high school…all to get into her panties!
But that’s not all!!! Foxy claims Jay Z is an undercover tranny chaser. She says she learned that after a tranny began calling and harassing her, not long after Jay Z gave her gonorrhea. WTF?!?! Foxy says one of her sex sessions with Jay Z was all caught on tape. That’s when Foxy says she and Jay weren’t alone. Their company was the real “Wanda” from In Living Color…Mr. Jamie Foxx. According to Foxy, Jay Z signed her to “multiple gag orders for where she, Jamie and Jay engaged in a threesome” and that not long after the incident the tape was ironically robbed from her home. Foxy insists Jay Z had everything to do with that robbery.
Besides alleging that Jay Z chases tranny’s, Foxy says there was one constant man in Hova’s life. According to Foxy, Jay Z and Larry Johnson were ‘f*ck buddies.’ This doesn’t seem so far fetched given the fact that Jay once shared an apartment with the NBA baller who once repped Rocawear.
During her no holds barred account of her experience with Jay Z, Foxy was reported to clearly display a strong disliking for Jay’s wife, Beyonce.
Here’s what Foxy had to say about Mrs. Hova:
“Now he is with Beyonce…Fuck that halitosis-infected heffa.”
Now did you get all that? In no way does DivaWhispers believe any of this and this is for pure entertainment. You make your own opinions on these whispers. I’m thinking she’s stirring up the hype because she’s getting ready to come out with a single with Nicki Minaj or something like that. Only time will tell. SMH….
Beyoncé and Jay-Z Break A Billion
The Carters have reportedly become the first billion dollar couple in music.
Here’s one more reason to “Bow Down” when Beyoncé hits the stage at the Staples Center on Friday June 28 to kick off the BET Experience. Mrs. Carter and her man are officially the first billion-dollar couple in music history.
The International Business Times is reporting that the profits from Young B’s Mrs. Carter tour (reportedly $116 million) as well as her recent H&M campaign have pushed the power couple over the nine-figure threshold.
In case you’re keeping score, Beyoncé has also done endorsement deals with L’Oreal and Tommy Hilfiger, racked up 17 Grammy Awards, and sold over 75 million records worldwide. And that’s not counting her film career.
All that plus she’s raising her daughter Blue Ivy and buying her man private jets for father’s day. (Of course Jay’s got a few assets of his own, but you already know about Roc Nation and the New Jersey Nets.) So when she says “I Been On” you’d best believe her.

Names can speak volumes. Worth a thousand words, a name will automatically alert others of intension, persona, and, of course, vibe. The right moniker can give people a lasting impression so it’s important to choose wisely and very carefully.By the time he was 12, Michael Nguyen Stevenson was already known around his neighborhood as Tiger. Soon after, Stevenson set his sights on becoming a rapper and thought that he needed a new handle. Tiger wasn’t going to cut it, but rather than totally change his name, he simply tweaked it and came up with Tyga. The new name is more than a simple alias. It’s an acronym for Thank You God Always.
Tyga became obsessed with music, diligently studying the work of Eminem, Cash Money Records, Nas and 2Pac, among others. In a move that would soon provide unintended benefits, Tyga started listening to the songs of his favorite artists and spending hours transcribing the lyrics to their songs. He then would rap along to the song as the music played.
About five years ago, Tyga earned a famous fan in Travie McCoy, lead singer of Gym Class Heroes, when they met at a Los Angeles shoe store. Impressed by Tyga’s work, McCoy took the aspiring rapper under his wing, flying him out to join his group on tour. While working and touring with McCoy, Tyga recorded and independently released his No Introduction album and met Lil Wayne. Wayne was working on Tha Carter III at the time. Tyga soaked up everything he could from Wayne, especially his remarkable work ethic. Tyga also started developing his public persona as a gifted lyricist who can make credible songs aimed at women and hard-hitting braggadocio bangers.
Standout performances on Young Money’s We Are Young Money album (notably on the singles “Bedrock” and “Roger That”), Chris Brown’s “Deuces” and a multitude of well-received mix-tapes set the stage for Tyga’s highly anticipated Young Money/Cash Money debut album, Careless World: Rise of The Last King, which includes the debut single “Far Away” featuring Cash Money artist Chris Richardson.
With a rangy set of friends from Fall Out Boy to Lil Wayne, it was obvious from the start that Tyga was not your everyday rapper from Compton. After recording a mixtape and promoting it around the city, Tyga ran into his cousin, Gym Class Heroes member Travis McCoy, in the Flight Club L.A. sneaker shop. Their conversation went from shoes to rappers, and as Travis’ group went from unknowns to MTV stars, he would always remember that talk and his cousin’s unique style. Travis signed Tyga to his Bad Squad label and then invited him along when the punk-pop group Fall Out Boy came calling. Travis and Tyga would appear on the remix to Fall Out Boy’s “Arms Race,” which also featured Kanye West, Paul Wall, Skinhead Rob, Lupe Fiasco, and Lil Wayne. When the remix became a hit, Tyga found himself performing the track on MTV’s Video Music Awards in 2007. He soon entered the studio to do some guest shots for his new friend Lil Wayne before shifting the focus to his solo career. His first single became the hooky “Coconut Juice,” a S*A*M & Sluggo production that borrowed a bit of Harry Nilsson’s hit “Coconut.” As the club track was climbing the charts in the spring of 2008, Tyga was hard at work on his debut album, No Introduction, which was officially released that June. He returned in 2011 with Careless World, an album that featured Game, Snoop Dogg, and Drake among its guests. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
The Internets are buzzing again about a possibility that a new Jay-Z albumwill be dropping this year.
It’s been four years since Based Hov has blessed us with a solo joint but according to Illseed of AllHipHop.com, Jay is currently working on a new solo project that might even feature some new young guns in the game.
From what I have been hearing, Jay is using this tour with Justin Timberlake to set up the new album. I would have expected him to drop it before a major tour but Jay knows what Jay is doing. As for the music, I heard Jay is talking greasy again! I guess he can afford to do that, since he’s still on the court as
a starter. Lots of new bucks coming in the game. Apparently, he’s recorded with one of them already
Are you anticipating a new Jay-Z solo album?
DJ Khaled has put together an all-star list of rappers for his brand new single, “No New Friends”. The track features Drake, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Future.
