A Drake impersonator -- who looks nothing like him -- earns thousands of dollars for club bookings where he lip-syncs as the Canadian rapper.

The bootleg Drake, who goes by "Izzy", sat down with No Jumper for an in-depth interview. Izzy claims he went to Miami where people told him he looked just like the rap star.

They encouraged Izzy to shave a heart in his head -- and that's when the money started rolling in.

"People DM me, like, 'Do you want to come to my event? We can't pay Drake because he's too expensive," said Izzy. He claims club owners cover his travel expenses and hotel bills.

"I've been doing my thing, you know. That's all I'm gonna say."

One promoter in Las Vegas booked Izzy to perform at a club there, but the promoter didn't want to anger the real Drake. So he put in a call to his management, and got in touch with Drake himself.

Drake reportedly told the promoter, "Let the guy get his bag."

Most rappers upon hearing that someone is impersonating them in clubs would threaten lawsuits. But drake is so rich, he can afford to be unbothered.

He makes me want to be better every day. And I pray that I do the same for him. This love is FOREVER and I'm honored and overjoyed to do forever with him."

DaniLeigh might spend the Christmas holidays behind bars after her fight with rapper DaBaby over the weekend.

DaBaby wisely called police after the 26-year-old singer/rapper allegedly attacked him when he ordered her to leave his condo with their 3-month-old baby girl.

"I just want her peacefully removed, which they need to hurry up (and) do as we speak," he said on IG Live. "I ain't even want that behavior on display but it's OK, man this too shall pass, it's all good."

North Carolina officers responded to DaBaby's call and arrested DaniLeigh. A police source tells TMZ she is facing two counts of simple assault. She may face jail time if convicted.

DaniLeigh, born Danielle Leigh Curiel to Dominican parents, is seen in Instagram Live videos yelling at the rapper.

"This man is mad bc I had a plan b sent to his condo," she claimed on social media.

"All he wanna do is cum in me with no responsibility... Obviously he [probably] want me out so he can f**k on his baby mother and other hoes who been known we been together this whole time while I just had my first child. This all goes to say that this man is a f**king coward!"

She also accused DaBaby of sleeping with his other baby mama and a plethora of groupies.

DaniLeigh appeared depressed, exhausted and unkempt as she raged at her baby daddy, who accused her of moving into his condo with their baby and 2 suitcases.

DaniLeigh, pictured in March, admitted she tried to play house with DaBaby in an effort to domesticate him, but he refused to play along.

"This all goes to say that this man is a f–king coward !!!!!" she shouted. She added that she was asleep after cooking him dinner when he came in with his assistants and tried to kick her out.

"Ima learn and Ima grow ... but this right here ain't it.. and I'm sorry to my baby that her father is kicking her out her home at 3 months," she said.

Someone edited DaniLeigh's Wikipedia page to drag DaBaby to say he went live on DaniLeigh's Instagram to "gaslight, disrespect and embarrass both mother & child".

Rapper DaBaby denied kicking his 3rd baby mama, DaniLeigh, and their child out of his home over the weekend.

The drama started when DaBaby filmed the obviously distressed singer feeding their 3-month-old daughter. At one point, she held up a pillow to prevent him from filming her.

DaBaby later claimed the singer hit him and yelled at him while chasing him around his home.

DaBaby's assistant stopped by and told her boss to handle the situation. At which point he made a video to clear the air.

He claimed he called the police for his own safety after Danileigh showed up at his house with their child and two suitcases.

He accused her of stalking his first baby mama and he called the police because she wouldn't leave his home.

"We're not about to do that," DaBaby said in in updated video.

"Me and Danileigh is not together... We do not go together. She does not live with me. I been made it clear... this is not what we doing. I care about my kids fa real. My kids ain't no marketing schemes..."

DaBaby admitted, "I done skeeted in the wrong thang."

Minutes later, Danileigh stood over DaBaby as he livestreamed. She even swatted her manicured fingers at his cell phone.

"Somebody need to come and make shorty leave," the rapper pleaded.

"I already left your ass," she said. "You want to get on line to talk shit and put everybody in our business trying to act like we haven't been together," she said.

She claimed DaBaby was doing what all rappers do: sleep around with a bunch of groupies. For some reason she thought she was special and that he wouldn't cheat on her.

DaniLeigh criticized DaBaby for allegedly abandoning her when she was pregnant and using their personal private life to promote his EP and upcoming tour.

DaBaby's rap career was resurrected from the ashes after LGBT+ groups gave him their blessings to go on tour.

He was nearly cancelled for his homophobic rant in Miami earlier this year.

Cardi B was worried her hair would fall out while she was pregnant with her son, who was born in September.

The mom-of-two rapper took to Instagram to share her hair growth journey. She posted throwback photos of her shoulder length hair alongside a video of her bra strap length hair.

She captioned the video:

"Why everytime I post my natural hair I hear 'you're MIXED you're supposed to have long hair?' That's not true and very misleading. I been posting pics of my hair journey for years and being mixed don't mean your hair is always long and curly, that wasn't my case."

Cardi, who was born Belcalis Almánzar to a Dominican father and Trinidadian mother, continued:

"Since I was a child I have problems with managing my hair and couple years ago I find different methods that work for me and look at my length now. They'll try to make us believe our hair won't grow this long it's not true. A lot of hair products we used back then wasn't good for our hair but that's all we had to choose from also we couldn't afford to get to the salon regularly, if at all... I want women of color with tighter curl patterns to know that you don't have 'BAD HAIR' there's no such thing as bad hair. and 'good' hair don't mean a certain texture. ALL HAIR IS GOOD."

Cardi B's hair grew long and thick thanks to the female hormone Progesterone.

Progesterone reverses hair loss in women by inhibiting male androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that causes hair thinning.

Pregnant women have excess levels of progesterone which explains why their hair is voluminous, thick and healthy while pregnant.

Progesterone is produced by the ovaries and thickens the lining of the uterus to support the fertilized egg/embryo.

After 8-10 weeks, the placenta takes over progesterone production from the ovaries and substantially increases progesterone levels. During this phase a pregnant woman's hair is thick and lovely.

After pregnancy, progesterone levels drop down to pre-pregnancy levels. For some women, that means hair loss and thinning hair again.

An attorney representing Travis Scott claims the troubled rapper wasn't aware that people were dying as he performed at his Astroworld Festival in Houston.

Nine people died and hundreds were injured during a stampede at the music festival on Nov. 5. But Scott performed for another 40 minutes.

Attorney Edwin F. McPherson claims the rapper was unaware of the chaos and deaths until the next morning.

In an interview on ABC's Good Morning America on Friday, McPherson called the chaos a "systemic breakdown" and said people should wait for the investigation before "we start pointing fingers at anyone.".

McPherson claims the rapper nor his crew were ever informed that officials declared the concert a mass casualty event.

"He's up there trying to perform. He does not have any ability to know what's going on down below," McPherson said. "Travis didn't really understand the full effect of everything until the next morning. Truly, he did not know what was going on."

When asked about Scott's history of inciting the crowd to violence, McPherson said the rapper did what any other performer has done.

"Travis as an artist has really grown up a lot. I have spoken personally to him about this and he really didn't understand the magnitude of his power up on the stage as a young performer. He's really matured over the years."

So far, 150 lawsuits have been filed against Scott, Live Nation Entertainment, and NRG Park where the concert was held.

The festival was insured for $26 million, but wrongful death claims are expected to surpass $100 million.

Scott has earned around $65 million overall from the festival, according to reports.

Watch the interview below.

Toronto rap legend Pressa (right) sparked a firestorm when he claimed Black Americans "don't have no culture."

Pressa is best known in America for dating rapper Benzino's daughter, fellow rapper Coi Leray (left).

The 25-year-old, who recently dropped his 2020 EP Gardner Express, made the observations about Black Americans in tweets this week.

"Americans got no culture their biggest culture is Hip Hop mtfs dont even know what island they from they just BLACK like the color [black square emoji][crying laughing emoji]."

The delicate rapper, who is sometimes confused for a girl, went on to say:

"N*ggas be like im BLACK no n*gga u built like a mtf Nigerian [black square emoji][black circle emoji]."

Pressa's views are shared by Africans, Caribbeans and Black Brits who turn their noses up at Black Americans.

The response from Black Americans was defensive and apologetic. One Twitter user told Pressa, "Well thank slavery for that."

NeNe Leakes has expressed an interest in returning to Real Housewives of Atlanta, the reality TV show she helped create with Bravo Network.

After the death of her husband, Gregg Leakes, NeNe is alone for the first time in her adult life. Friends say money is tight and NeNe is struggling to keep her Linnethia Restaurant & Lounge open.

NeNe's million Duluth mansion is still sitting on the market after 52 days. She is asking $3.8 million for the property she purchased for $2 million in 2015.

Last week, NeNe admitted she would absolutely be open to returning to the show if her former friend, Bravo producer Andy Cohen would give her a meeting.

Andy has responded to her request.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch, Andy Cohen responded to NeNe on his SiriusXM podcast, Andy Cohen Live.

Here is what he said:

"What I don't want to do is get into a public thing with her. I think she would probably prefer that I keep her name out of my mouth and that is what I'm going to honor."

Ouch.

'Woke' Apple Music infuriated social media users by referring to singer Summer Walker as a "female-identifying" artist.

Social media users were offended by the term "female-identifying" which is typically a term used to describe people whose identity differs from their biological sex.

Apple Music recognized Summer's second studio album, Still Over It, as the "biggest album debut ever by a female-identifying artist."

Black Twitter was confused because a person who is "female-identifying" is someone who was born a biological male and who now identifies as a female. An example would be a male-to-female transgender.

Summer Walker has never been ambiguous about her sex. She certainly doesn't look like a male. The R&B singer has never indicated that she was born in the wrong body or that she believed she was a male.

Black Twitter had questions.

One Twitter user wrote: "Female identifying? What's wrong with calling her what she is A WOMAN!!!"

Another tweeted: "Why are you referring to Summer Walker, a black woman, as "female identifying" when you just referred to Taylor Swift as a "first woman"? ...newsflash both of these artists are women and female. Neither word is a dirty word."

And a third person wrote: "Female-identifying? Why tf did you word it like that? That’s disrespectful. She’s a woman, acknowledge her as such."
