Lil Baby Wants $100,000 for a Feature

Lil Baby has shared his price for a feature, but some of the people close to him think he’s lowballing himself.

The Quality Control artist hopped on Twitter on Friday (June 26) and tweeted the hefty price a rapper will have to pay if they want bars from him on their record. “At this point it’s safe to say I want 100k for a feature,” he wrote.

However, shortly after he posted the tweet, Pierre “P” Thomas, the CEO of Quality Control Music, the label Baby is signed to, and Lil Durk told Baby that he needs to increase the amount. “200k,” Pee wrote. Then, Durk  said, “Fuck that 200k.”

It’s unclear what Baby’s final number will be, but his recently announced price doesn’t seem very farfetched considering his continued success from a top-charting album to platinum and gold RIAA certifications.

On Sunday (June 21), it was announced that the ATL-bred rapper has spent his third week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with his album, My Turn. The release debuted at the top of the chart back in March.

Meanwhile, his record “The Bigger Picture” debuted at No. 3 on the Hot 100. The song, which delves into Lil Baby’s experiences with racism, police brutality and the criminal justice system, is the rapper’s highest-charting track.

Baby released the song just days after attending protests in his hometown alongside city councilman Antonio Brown, who represents the city’s District 3, which includes Vine City, English Avenue and Atlantic Station.

Shortly after delivering the cut, Lil Baby shared that he will be donating proceeds from “The Bigger Picture” to The Bail Project, National Association of Black Journalists, Breonna Taylor’s legal costs and Black Lives Matter.

Lil Baby, who was named Top Song Writer of the Year, so far by Music Business Worldwide back in May, has 22 RIAA certifications in total.

Rubi Rose Shuts Down Age Controversy Over “Bad and Boujee” Video, “I Was 18”

Rubi Rose has swiftly risen to stardom in recent years, gearing up for the release of her debut album following a string of successful singles. Her journey into the spotlight began with appearances in iconic 2010s music videos. While she made waves in Cardi B’s “WAP,” her initial breakthrough came from her cameo in Migos’ chart-topping hit “Bad and Boujee.”

Recently, Rose’s appearance on the Joe Budden Podcast sparked a flurry of controversy. During the interview, she mentioned being only 16 when she starred in the “Bad and Boujee” video, igniting a backlash over the perceived inappropriateness of her casting at such a young age. The public outcry was so intense that Rose felt compelled to clarify her statement.

Taking to Twitter, the rapper corrected the record, posting a clip from the podcast with a caption: “I was 18 in the ‘Bad and Boujee’ video y’all,” she wrote. “My bad.” Indeed, the math supports her claim. Born on October 2, 1997, Rose was 18 when the video was filmed and 19 when it was released on October 31, 2016.

This isn’t the first time Rose’s age has stirred up controversy. In a December 2023 VladTV interview, she hinted at past romantic involvements with rappers Travis Scott and 21 Savage. The interview raised eyebrows as she might have been underage during those relationships. When the interviewer pointed out that she was 21 at the time of the interview, Rose’s evasive reaction added fuel to the speculation.

Internet detectives uncovered old Instagram posts from 2014, liked by Travis Scott, despite Rose being only 16 at the time. They also found a deleted tweet where she implied lying about her age, stating, “Sometimes u have to lie about your age when it comes to NFL players.”

Currently, Rubi Rose is dating Druski, who is closer to her age at 29, seemingly steering clear of the age-gap controversies that have shadowed her past.
