Gammell will now petition the court to order Flava, real name William Jonathan Drayton Jr., to provide generous child support for herself and her 2-month-old son, Jordan.

The 60-year-old Pisces is best known as the hype man for Chuck D, 59, and the iconic hip-hop group Public Enemy.

Flava went on to make a name for himself as one of the pioneers of early reality competition television shows.

Flava fathered three children with Karen Ross and three more kids with Angie Parker. He also has a young son, Karma, with Elizabeth Trujillo.

In addition to starring in WEtv's Growing Up Hip-Hop: New York, Flava Flav graduated from culinary school and worked in several restaurants.

Gammell's pregnancy was documented on Growing Up Hip-Hop, leading to speculation that her pregnancy is made-for-TV.

Flava previously denied he was the father of little Jordan.

Lil Kim is not at all insulted that Beyonce Knowles-Carter has repeatedly jacked her "Queen Bee" alias over the years.

The original Queen Bee says the hotel lobby singer is welcome to call herself "queen bey" because she's earned the title.

"I feel like Beyonce rightfully so has the right to call herself Queen Bee as well. Her name is Bey-once."

 

The 45-year-old Brooklyn MC was honored when Beyonce and her husband, Jay-Z, dressed up as her and Notorious BIG for Halloween in 2017.

"Lil Kim Appreciation. Hip Hop would not be the same without our original Queen B," Kim wrote on her website.

But Kim has no love for Beyonce's "disrespectful" fans.

"I feel like some of her fans that's disrespectful. 'Cause some of them be like 'Y'all both the queen bees.' Some of her fans are so respectful and some of them just give it up. 'Cause she even did. She was like the original Queen Bey, and that was love to me."

Kim says she was the original beehive before Beyonce's fans jacked it.

"That was me, and then I had a group… That was my whole thing. I was the beehive. My fans kind of adapted the name. It's so funny because even back then my fans would run up like, 'I'm beehive! I'm a part of the beehive!' They would be following me and they would all come to my concerts, and they would wear shirts with the bees on them and say they were the beehive.

Lil Kim's debut studio album, Hard Core (1996), set the standard for female rappers from MC Lyte to Nicki Minaj to follow. The album was certified double platinum and sold over 6 million copies.

It was on her debut album that Kim first referenced herself as the "bee" in her single "Queen Bitch".

"You wanna bumble with the bee?" She rapped on Puff Daddy's all-star track "All About The Benjamins" in 1997.

But Kim says she doesn't mind Beyonce laying claim to the queen bee title because Kim prefers the title "icon".

"Oh my goodness, I love the word icon," Kim told The NY Post after receiving the I Am Hip Hop Award for career achievement at the BET Hip Hop Awards last month. "I love it. I embrace it. I'm happy to own it. I like inspiring other women. I love it — 'cause other women have inspired me."

Bushwick Bill, founder of legendary rap group The Geto Boys, is battling stage 4 cancer of the pancreas. The 52-year-old told TMZ that he was diagnosed in February, after doctors found a mass on his pancreas that they initially believed was benign (non-cancerous).

Super Bowl 49 halftime

I confess, I missed the over-hyped Super Bowl 49 yesterday. So I missed singers Katy Perry and Missy Elliott's much ballyhooed halftime performance that had all of social media in a frenzy. After scanning the tweets on Twitter.com, I noticed that most of the social media platform's users had no clue who Missy Elliott was.

Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim

Who can forget when Nicki Minaj was a young stud who had the hots for rapper Remy Ma? In case you did forget, you can watch the video of Nicki professing her love and affection for Remy after the break. Nicki was crushed when Remy spurned her advances and basically told her to kick rocks.

But prison has a way of changing people like Remy Ma, who had a lot of free time to think about Nicki's meteoric rise to the top (and how she can ride Nicki's coattails now that's she released).

Special Ed

Some of you weren't even born when the youngest in charge, Special Ed dropped his blazing debut album of the same name when he was a mere lad of 16. Propelled by the album's scorchers, "I Got It Made" and "I'm The Magnificent," Ed's album, Youngest in Charge, went on to sell more than 500,000 copies in 1989.

The Jamaican-born rhyme slayer followed up those hits with "Come On, Let's Move It" off his sophomore album Legal, which dropped in 1990 when Ed turned 18.

But where is Special Ed now?
