7. Turk & B.G. Of Cash Money Had Serious Heroin Addictions.
When you hear “Cash Money taking over for tha’ 99′ & 2000” you’re automatically transformed to a time when Cash Money Records could do no wrong. Two of the infamous “Hot Boyz” members Christopher “B.G.” Dorsey and Tab “Turk” Virgil struggled with heroin addictions while in the spotlight. During an interview with Hiphopdx.com
back in 2013, Turk stated: “I was shooting heroin and cocaine, and I introduced B.G. to shooting heroin and cocaine. We was on the Cash Money/Ruff Ryders tour. B.G. had been getting high; I had been getting high.”
6. Jay-Z Sneak Dissed Aaliyah & Beyonce in Songs.
Lyrical heavyweight Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter has more than a way with words. Him being no stranger to voicing his opinions about the fairer sex, “Hov” may have taken some light shots at songstress Aaliyah and future wife Beyonce. On Angie Martinez’s 2000 track “Mi Amor” Jigga man said:
Love sexin girls on that boricua shit /
Love black girls that’s when the Levi’s fit /
Chicks that play hard to get on that Aaliyah shit /
If at first I don’t succeed, then believe I split.
Those bars were directly in response to Aaliyah’s “Try Again” single for the “Romeo Must Die Soundtrack”.
Jay didn’t stop there, he also sent a subtle shot at Queen Bey. On Missy Elliot’s “One Mintue Man Remix” Jay-Z raps:
“Look, I’m not trying to give you love and affection/
I’m trying to give you sixty seconds of perfection/
I’m trying to give you cabfare and directions/
Get your independent ass out of here. Question?”
That last bar was in response to Destiny’s Child single “Independent Women” in which Beyonce sings:
Question? Tell me what you think about me
I buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings
Only ring your cell-y when I’m feelin lonely
When it’s all over please get up and leave
Question? Tell me how you feel about this
Try to control me boy you get dismissed

3. Diddy Assaulted Drake At Club “LIV”.
Though there is no footage of the incident but TMZ
“Diddy punched Drake at LIV nightclub in Miami Beach, and we were told it was because Diddy felt disrespected by the rapper, and now we know why.
Our sources say, producer Boi-1da had given both Diddy and Drake a song to record more than 8 months ago. We’re told Diddy sat on the song, which frustrated Drake because he wanted to record it. So recently Drake recorded the song on his own and it did well, which pissed Diddy off.
Diddy saw Drake at LIV Monday for the first time since the song was released. Sources close to Diddy say he confronted Drake, who just blew him off, and that’s when Diddy said, “You’ll never disrespect me again,” and then punched him.
