Police in Omaha, Neb., are investigating a shooting that followed a rowdy concert by rapper Tyga. Authorities say heated words were exchanged between members of Tyga's act and some audience members Monday night at Sokol Auditorium, south of downtown. Some garbage was thrown up on the stage, leading Tyga to confront the audience. "Who threw this shit? Who threw it? You threw it?… alright, see my outside."
It's been years since Nas and former manager Steve Stoute formally worked together, but when the two reunited on-stage at a keynote Q&A at South by Southwest Friday it was as if little time had passed.
In anticipation of VH1's "Behind The Music" episode focused on the rise of Compton rapper Game, the MC tells Billboard.com that he's already working on new music to follow up last year's "R.E.D. Album."
The Game was sued for including bonus footage in a DVD that showed him getting beaten by North Carolina police officers. An appeals judge affirms a $5 million judgment that could rise to $15 million upon remand.
