Isaac Hayes III (left) says rap legend Snoop Dogg is having second thoughts about Joe Biden.

In an interview with Rolling Out's "A.M. Wake-Up Call," Hayes discussed the abandonment of the Democratic Party by some of hip-hop's elite.

Hayes was disappointed that rap legend Ice Cube is apparently supporting President Donald Trump in the upcoming election.

"I was disappointed that Ice Cube would have a conversation with the Trump campaign. I'm not opposed to anyone trying to bring about change. The thing that concerns me is the timing and who you are talking to. The result was that the Trump campaign used Ice Cube to reach out to Black men. It's not the move at the right time."

When asked what message he had for Ice Cube, Hayes said:

"My message to Ice Cube would have been that Trump is different. He's radioactive. He'll tank your business. You can't align yourself with this man when he won't denounce White supremacy. He says racist things. He stokes division between the Black community and the police. I would have told Cube that this isn’t the guy to have a conversation with. [With] everything that Trump has in his plan he can make a change now. He's dangling change like a carrot to Black people for votes. We have to remove this guy from the office and start fresh."

Hayes said he spoke with Snoop Dogg, who expressed his concern about Biden's plans for Black America.

"Snoop Dogg and I spoke, and he expressed why there is a concern with the Biden campaign," Hayes said. "I had to push back and let him understand that we're trying to get this racist demigod out of office. I know people who have stood in line for 11 hours to vote."

50 Cent's black card was revoked and he was unanimously canceled by Black Twitter after he endorsed his friend Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election.

The fallout continues after the rap mogul announced he was voting for Trump due to challenger Joe Biden's insane tax plan.

Fiddy was outraged that Biden plans to hike the tax rate in New York to 62%.

"WHAT THE F***! (VOTE For TRUMP) IM OUT," Fiddy wrote on Instagram on Monday. He added: "I don't care Trump doesn't like black people 62% are you out of ya f****ing mind."
 

The reaction on social media was swift. Outraged L.A.-based Civil rights activist Najee Ali, director of Project Islamic Hope, canceled his Starz subscription and urged everyone to cancel their Starz subscriptions as well.

50 Cent is executive producer of the drama series "Power" on Starz.

Ali blamed Trump for the weakening coronavirus pandemic and called the president a "racist".

"Trump is a racist president who has never condemned white supremacy but embraced it," Ali wrote on his website. "For "50 Cent" to openly embrace a racist like Trump sends a horrible message. I refuse to support "50 Cent" or any celebrity whose endorsement of Trump is more important than the health and welfare of Black people."

Black Twitter also sounded off on 50 Cent and other Black notables who support Trump.

One Black Twitter user wrote: "Men like Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent aren't Black leaders, they are nothing more than opportunistic puppets who would sell their own people into slavery for a profit."


Another user tweeted: "Liberals just 'revoked 50 Cent's 'black card.'"


And Larry Elder tweeted: "When it comes to taxes, it looks like 50 Cent pretty quickly figured out that he doesn't want to pay 50 percent. #Trump2020."

But Trump's son, Eric Trump, was pleased with the rapper's endorsement. He tweeted a photo of 50 Cent and fellow rapper Ice Cube sitting side-by-side wearing Trump caps. Eric called them "Two great, courageous, Americans!"

Twitter tagged Eric's tweet, "manipulated media."

Tip "T.I." Harris defended fellow rapper Ice Cube for sitting down with President Donald Trump to discuss his ambitious Contract with Black America.

Ice Cube, real name O'Shea Jackson, met with both political parties to discuss his plan for economic recovery for the Black community. Only Trump was willing to share his $500 billion plan with Jackson. The Biden camp told him they would get back to him after the election.

T.I. told Power 106 that people should "give Cube the benefit of his reputation." He said only one party was willing to give Jackson a viable plan to develop businesses in the Black community.

"To add input to this initiative for the greater good of your people, and only one side responds? That's not Cube's fault. If we ain’t never known or seen or caught Cube on no bullsh*t - doing no tap dancing and bending over backwards for no white supremacist. Why you think he gon' start right now 35, 40 years in? Why? You've got to give him the credit of his credibility. And if you ain’t never known him to be on bullsh*t before, why you gon' just automatically put him in the mix of some bullsh*t now?"

T.I. also revealed that Polow Da Don told him that Trump and his team wanted to meet with him.

Rapper 50 Cent endorsed President Donald Trump after seeing Joe Biden's tax plan for the wealthy. The rapper shared a screenshot of Biden's tax plan on his Instagram account on Monday.

He captioned the image: "WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT..."

Fiddy, who was born Curtis Jackson, noted that California would see the stiffest tax hike: 62.6% under Biden's plan.

Biden's tax hike allegedly applies only to people and corporations that earn more than $400,000 annually.

"I don't care Trump doesn't like black people 62% are you out of ya f***ing mind," Fiddy wrote.

50 Cent, a registered Democrat, has criticized President Trump in the past.

Months ago, he called out the president for his response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"You wanted a reality show host as president. Well now you're on Survivor," he said.

Fans of NBA superstar Steph Curry were shocked by his wife's dramatic new look. Ayesha Curry unveiled her new blonde hairstyle on Instagram -- much to the shock of Steph's fans.

"Who is this white lady to the right of him?" wrote one IG user.

Another wrote: "Hell I thought it was a random white girl at first."

Others compared Ayesha to former MLB star Sammy Sosa, a dark-skinned Hispanic who bleached his face white.

Many questioned whether the former brunette bleached her skin to achieve society's standard of beauty.

Despite the criticism, Steph seemed very excited by his wife's new look in a post on her Instagram.

She captioned the post: "Mom goes blonde (temporarily)."

Taraji P. Henson confirmed rumors that she and her fiancé Kelvin Hayden have gone their separate ways.

The Empire star broke the news during an appearance on The Breakfast Club on Monday, Oct. 19.

The 50-year-old Virgo explained that she and the former NFL player tried to fix their problems with therapy sessions, but she said they were "not on the same page".

"It didn't work out," Taraji said. "I tried. I said, 'Let's do the therapy thing', but if you're both not on the same page with that, then you feel like you're taking it on yourself and that's not a fair position for anybody to play in a relationship."

She added, "My happiness is not his responsibility and his is not mine. We have to first learn how to make ourselves happy, to make each other happy. So when one person is taking on the weight of the entire relationship, it's never going to work... You have to still stand up for yourself and be there for yourself, but it's hard to do if the other person isn't doing that either."

Taraji said she learned in therapy that men are not emotional creatures. They shut down when women nag them.

"I just found out, in our therapy sessions, that men have fewer words than women. I didn't know that. They run out of words. Because women are emotional, we want to talk through everything," she told Playboy magazine.

"Of course we have more words; we're the communicators," said Taraji. "Kelvin, he thinks he's a comedian. Anytime we're in a disagreement or I'm like, 'We need to talk about this', he'll look at me and say, 'Baby, I done ran out of words'."

But Taraji hasn't given up on love: "I'm dedicated to the black man, y'all."

The actress and Kelvin, 37, became engaged in 2018, but they grew apart during the forced coronavirus lockdowns that have laid waste to many Hollywood marriages.

Taraji confessed she was considering holding her wedding in her garden after the coronavirus pandemic threw her plans into chaos.

The actress' nuptials were initially set for April 4, but she and Kelvin were forced to pushed the date back to June due to bad weather - and then they canceled again due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.

"It's a mess. It's a mess, so it might be in the backyard," she told Entertainment Tonight. "It's probably going to be a backyard wedding. It would break my mother's heart, (after) all these years, she had been wanting to see me get married and it's got to be virtually?"

Cardi B has temporarily deactivated her Twitter account after blasting teenagers who criticized her for taking her cheating husband back.

Twitter allows users to temporarily deactivate their accounts for 30 days before the account is deleted permanently.

Before deactivating her account, Cardi, 28, threw a temper tantrum on Instagram Live, attacking teens who continue to ridicule her for reuniting with the Migos rapper a month after filing for divorce.

"A whole bunch of 15-year-olds telling me how to live my life like I'm mother f**king Ariana Grande or something. Like I came from Disney or something.

"I'm so tired of people saying I've got to continuously explain myself. I didn't put my divorce out there, a f**king court clerk put it out there, and because people are making rumors up, 'Oh, this guy has a girl pregnant', I have to address it."

Cardi also slammed fans for criticizing serial cheater, Offset: "Then you guys want to be harassing this n**ga. Bro, if I work things out, why are you going to this n**ga's Twitter to harass him? That don't make no f**king sense.

"Y'all want to call yourself fans, I don't give a f**k. I'm tired of it. I do whatever the f**k I want to do. I love my fans and I'm grateful and thankful for what you do but some of y'all really be acting like I be sleeping with y'all. Offset is not the only f**king problem that I deal with. To be honest with you, my marriage is one of the least worries that I have right now."

WENN/Avalon

The couple reconciled over Cardi's birthday weekend and were spotted kissing and hugging in a series of photographs. But fans weren't buying it. They accused Cardi and Offset of staging their "divorce" because both fell off during the coronavirus lockdown.

Days later, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper confirmed they were back together, stating: "One day I'm happy, the next day I wanna beat a n**ga up... Then it's like, I start missing. It's really hard not to talk to your best friend. It's really hard to have no d**k."

Cardi B confessed to being the abusive partner in her marriage. The "Bodak Yellow" rapper proudly says she does the punching and slapping in her household.

Cardi recently reunited with her husband, serial cheater Offset, after she filed for divorce last month.

"It's hard not to talk to your best friend. You know what I'm saying? It is really hard to not talk to your best friend. [We're] two young motherf**krs that got married early. That's just what we are. We're no different than y'all's dysfunctional a** relationships."

When a fan insinuated that Offset was abusive and beat the brakes off of her, Cardi snapped back, "Abusive? Girl I'm the one that do the hitting and the s*** talking. Im just a crazy b**** one day I wanna smack a nikka next week I wanna ride his face and get the c** rag. Ya be tryin to analyze too much we are simply dysfunctional."

Sources say Cardi fell out with her bisexual sister, Hennessy, because she caught Offset between Hennessy's thighs.

Offset and Cardi, both 28, share 2-year-old daughter Kulture. The Migos rapper is also dad to two sons, Jordan and Kody, and a daughter, Kalea Marie.

Chadwick Boseman's widow, Simone Ledward, field a probate case to be named administrator over his estate.

The 'Black Panther' star died in August following a long battle with colon cancer.

Ledward filed a probate case in Los Angeles County Thursday, which shows Boseman's estate is valued at $938,500.

According to the court filing obtained by PEOPLE, Boseman died "intestate," meaning he did not leave a will.

Boseman's parents, Leroy and Carolyn Boseman, are also listed on the petition.

Boseman and Ledward got engaged in October 2019, and made their final public appearance as a couple in February at the 2020 NBA All-Star Game in Chicago.

An unfounded rumor claimed Ledward was pregnant with Boseman's baby.

Cops raided the set of singer Dua Lipa's upcoming music video after concerned locals reported the star for violating lockdown rules.

According to British tabloid The Sun, the "New Rules" star was accompanied by a large crew on the set in Shoreditch, east London, on Wednesday night.

According to onlookers, Dua and her crew didn't adhere to social distancing regulations.

"Dua and her entourage were having the time of their lives, but for those living around them it was a nightmare," the locals said. "It looked as though the people on the shoot were breaking rules and social distancing was totally out of the question.

"There were extras and what appeared to be dancers swarming around. Some people looked as though they were drinking too, so it ended up being quite rowdy," the source added.

"People in the area are respecting the law, so to see a pop star openly break it was poor form. Someone called the police. It was late at night and deserted there but, ultimately, it's a smack in the face for locals who had to listen to it going on."

It's not the first time the artist has been criticized for not following coronavirus rules. In August, the "Physical" hitmaker came under fire for attending a large social gathering in California during the pandemic.

Dua, a 25-year-old Libra, worked as a waitress in London while living on her own at age 15. She gained fame by posting cover songs on YouTube.

Dalton Harris' fans were concerned after The X Factor winner took to Twitter to say he was going through a rough time and contemplating suicide.

On Oct. 14, Harris tweeted that he was on a dark road of despair after breaking up with his lover.

"I had a deep realization last night," tweeted Harris. "The only reason I didn't take my life today is because I spoke with GOD and I decided to make the biggest change [I] will ever make in my life. I want to live my life not running away from pain inflicted on me or the pain I inflict on anyone."

He continued: "I want to be happy and truly smile. I ended a relationship that was the best thing that happened to me and that taught me so many things. Taught me that I am valuable and that I matter and deserve love. Thank you Ayose. I will love you forever."

Fans speculated that Ayose may be a man. The 26-year-old Capricorn grew up in a one-room shack in Jamaica with his single mom, who didn't accept her son's lifestyle.

Harris, who never knew his dad, left home at age 15. He performed dancehall and reggae music in juke joints.

He released many tracks including "I'm Numb", "Watch Over Me" and "That Wonderful Sound" in Jamaica in 2015.

After moving to England, Harris auditioned for season 15 of The X Factor UK. Harris' cover of Elton John's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" moved judge Ayda Field to tears.

His winning single was "The Power of Love", performed as a duet with James Arthur, who won The X Factor in 2012.

"Listen y'all, I'm just a crazy bitch. You know how I be arguing with y'all on social media? That's exactly how we are, between me and my man. So when people be saying I be doing s--t for attention, with this and that, no, I'm just a crazy bitch."

"I do like material things, I like material things and everything, but I just didn't ... What do you want me to do? The n---a gave me a Rolls-Royce and I snub him?"

She added: "And I really wanted some d–k for my birthday. We're just really typical, two young motherf---as who got married early, that's what we are. We're not no different than y'all f—in' dysfunctional a-- relationships. We're the same way. We're just more public," she concluded.

Lizzo and other liberal stars turned the 2020 Billboard Music Awards into a political event Wednesday night.

Lizzo won the award for Top Song Sales at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. The 32-year-old Taurus wore a one-sleeve, off the shoulder black frock with the words "VOTE" printed on it.

"I've been thinking a lot about suppression and the voices that refuse to be suppressed," said the "Truth Hurts" singer. "And I wonder, would I be standing here right now if it weren't for the big black women who refused to have their voices be suppressed?"

Lizzo urged Billboard's viewers to get out and vote: "When people try to suppress something, it's normally because that thing holds power. They're afraid of your power ... So whether it's through music, protest or your right to vote, use your power, use your voice and refuse to be suppressed."

Rapper activist Killer Mike, appearing via CCTV from Atlanta, was honored with the first ever Billboard Change Maker Award. After being presented the award by Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Killer Mike spoke directly to the young people pounding the pavement to seek justice for George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

"You matter more than you know," he said in a reference to the Black Lives Matter movement. "You are needed more than ever."

Killer Mike turned to his wife, Shana Render, standing beside him, and said, "This is our award."

He continued:

"I am first and foremost your husband and I would not be here receiving this if not for your encouragement... I'd probably just be smoking weed, hanging out... by myself. I love you very much and I appreciate you."
