Well, this is awkward. Yesterday (Nov. 10), Young Money rapper Tyga was handcuffed by police officers during a video shoot in South Central LA. According to a report from TMZ, the 24-year-old rapper was pulled over while driving in a Rolls Royce, and was put in handcuffs as a result of reckless driving; a report that has been confirmed by the Los Angeles Police Department.
It’s not clear why Tyga was put in handcuffs, but he was eventually released. His bodyguard on the other hand, was arrested for possession of a gun that was not registered in California.

Despite the drama Iggy Azalea has been dealing with lately, she still has a reason to smile. The Australian rapper and her NBA player boyfriend Nick Young have just been named the new faces of Forever 21‘s holiday campaign. Azalea, who also serves as a Wilhelmina model, recently chopped it up with People to discuss her first national campaign and how fun it was to shoot with her man.
“As the hours rolled by I think Nick started to realize photoshoots are hard work too,” said Azalea to People. “It was funny watching him have that revelation!” Young also had a great time taking pointers for his rapper/model girlfriend: “It was real cool. We had great chemistry,” said Young.
The two also revealed their chemistry on set, what apparel they would love to wear and how childhood gifts like a Mongoose bike and Baby Born doll gave them feelings of nostalgia.

British R&B singer Jay Sean has decided to part ways with Cash Money Records after six years on the label. Sean dropped three albums while on CMR but appears to be looking for a change of scenery. The label has had its share of controversy recently with both Tyga and Lil Twist expressing their disdain. But, according to the singer, his split was amicable. “I had and still maintain a great relationship with Slim and Baby,” he told Billboard. “They believed in me and my talent and our partnership obviously garnered a lot of pop success.”
Sean looks to be taking his career in a different direction. “It got to the point where I was chasing pop success and ‘the smash’ when really my heart wasn’t in it anymore,” he said. “That’s not why I got into this game.” The uber popular UK artist will be putting on a new mixtape titled, Mistress II, in November. Check out the latest release from the project, “Tears In The Ocean,” below.

Kanye West has always been selective when it comes to things he puts his name on, so what seems impressive to some might appear mediocre to him. According to TMZ, the Chicago native recently turned down a lucrative $4.5 million deal in Vegas, which would have earned him the title of highest paid performer, outranking Celine Dion, Britney Spears and J-Lo.
The offer involved Yeezy performing three shows a week for three weeks at the Axis at Planet Hollywood. He would have racked up an impressive $500,000 lump sum per show. For the man designing a diamond ring for his 16-month-old daughter, money is clearly no object but for some reason the Vegas deal just didm’t attract the controversial rapper.
Kanye’s reasoning for walking away from the deal has yet to be disclosed.
