Jay Z hopped on DJ Khaled’s new track “They Don’t Love You No More” and had a few choice words for the NCAA and fired a subliminal shot at Drake. Listen for yourself inside…
Seems Hip Hop heavyweight Jay Z is pissed off at the NCAA for not paying college athletes, so the rapper put the organization on blast in a verse on DJ Khaled's newly released track “They Don’t Love You No More” featuring Rick Ross, Meek Mill and French Montana.
As you know, Jay Z founded sports agency Roc Nation Sports and is also a licensed NBA & MLB agent, so he’s all about getting his clients paid. There has been recent debate surrounding college athletes getting paid for the large amounts of money they generate for the NCAA and their respective schools.
NCAA President Mark Emmert told CNBC "We want to make sure they get degrees, and that they really have the education that sets them up for life," Emmert said. "That's the game-changer here. Not the 3 to 4 percent who make it to the NBA."
Some feel athletes should see some of the profit they generate and Jay sides with that argument. He sent a special message to the NCAA in his new verse rapping,
But wait…there’s more…
Jigga then takes a subliminal jab at Drake rapping,
You’ll recall last week, Drizzy hit up a Toronto Raptors vs. Brooklyn Nets game where he threw in a jab at Jay. Talking to TSN commentators, Drizzy made a comment about Jay being too busy to attend his beloved Nets games saying, “Jay is somewhere eating a fondue plate.”
Take a listen to Jay going in on the NCAA and Drizzy at the 3:23 mark below:
In other Jay Z news, The Carters recently confirmed they will be trekking across the nation for their 16-city “On The Run” tour. $1 from each ticket purchased will be donated to the Shawn Carter Foundation to support students. Pre-sale tix went on sale at 8AM this morning. Did you cop your pre-sale tix yet?

Rapper The Game and comedian Nick Cannon spent their weekends getting in some quality family time with their little ones. Check their cute family photos when you go inside…
It was a weekend full of family fun…with the dads!
After his alleged physical altercation with his now ex-fiancée Tiffney Cambridge, The Game finally got to spend some quality time with all of his kids…together. Game made claims that Tiffney was keeping his kids away from him but it seems she may have recently had a change of heart.
Game’s son King Justice (whom he shares with Tiffney) turned 7-year-old recently and to celebrate, he gathered up his clan and took them to Disney Land for a weekend full of fun.
On Friday, Game was spotted lunchin’ in L.A. with model/dancer Britt Lucio but soon got into daddy mode for a day out with the fam. Game rounded up a slew of kids and treated them to a day of roller coasters, games and Disney characters captionining the moment, “1/3rd of today's @disneyland squad for @kingjusticetaylor's weekend birthday #turnup #family #weekend #fun #disneyland #happybirthdayjustice”
Little Miss Cali is so adorably cute!
Game bought along his assistant LoLo for the fun-filled family day.
And cutie Cali seemed to extra excited as they made their way to park. She was captured in the backseat singing Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” on their way to the amusement park:
And another celeb dad on full daddy mode this weekend...
On Sunday, “AGT” host Nick Cannon spent his down time with his twins Monroe and Moroccan…or as Mariah likes to call them, “Dem Babies.”
Little man Moroccan flexed his muscles in his “Dad’s #1 Tough Guy” shirt. Too cute for words.
While his sister…or should we say little Ms.Mimi…posed it up just like her mama donning an “I Love Mommy” shirt with a caricature of her fabulous mother.
Nick captioned, “Her face says it all!! It's Monroe's World!!! #AProblemOnMyHands #GotMeWrappedAroundHerFinger”

In an interview airing on Access Hollywood on Tuesday, Porsha Williams speaks out about the "RHOA" reunion fight and what led to her outrage. After the incident says, "I had regrets immediately after. "I saw the hate. I saw the anger. I saw all of that in Kenya's eye that moment. And I felt threatened, honestly I did, [the scepter] was a weapon."
Porsha also made remarks about her approach to reality tv versus some of her co-stars. "For Kenya, she looks at this as a job. It's a show to her; it's just entertainment...So she doesn't take anything seriously . . .Here I am living this real life and here she is portraying one."
And for the first time, she calls Kenya a bully. "It's not about team Porsha....I appreciate the love, but understand the deeper thing that's going on here, it's bullying. Bullying can happen as an adult, it can happen as a child, in college, or your work place, everywhere."
The Porsha Williams interview airs on Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday, April 30.
In sports news...

WAIT FOR IT..........
If you guessed Ashanti, you're right!
Taking a break from promoting her newest album, Braveheart, Ashanti slipped into a itty, bitty bikini to catch some rays as she put the “bullsh*t” aside and showed off her curves in a teal and yellow bikini.

She captioned, “With all the bullsh#t in life.. Ya gotta find chill time... @kevajswimwear #braveheart.”

Over the weekend, Laura Govan and her man Gilbert Arenas were on double duty as they threw a joint birthday bash for their sons, 7-year-old Alijah and 3-year-old Aloni. Check the fam’s fun party pics inside…
On Sunday, former “BBW LA” star Laura Govan and former NBA baller Gilbert Arenas held one big birthday bash for their young sons, Alijah & Aloni at the Sky High Trampoline Park in Woodland Hills, California.
The couple (who share four kids together) rented out the indoor trampoline park filled with bouncing rings, face painting and dodge ball. Fellow celeb friends in attendance included “Let’s Stay Together” actress Kyla Pratt, Kevin Hart’s ex-wife Torrei Hart, Martin Lawrence’s ex-wife and “Hollywood Exes" star Shamicka Lawrence, radio personality Big Boy and others.
Gilbert appeared to be just as excited as the kids at the party. He shared some birthday love, hugging up on his 3-year-old son Aloni.
And he was spotted loving up on his daughter Hamiley during the party. Cute.
New mommy-of-two Kyla Pratt brought along big sister Lyric and the father of her children Danny Kilpatrick to join in on the bouncing activities. Looks like they left behind their newest baby girl being that she’s only about 9-months-old and not quite old enough to jump on the trampolines.
We spotted Torrei Hart and her two children, Heaven and Hendrix, whom she shares with her ex-husband Kevin Hart. Torrei recently dished to TheYBF.com about her messy divorce from her Laugh At My Pain comedian husband. She revealed she's no longer dwelling on the past and has decided to focus her energy on their children and her new career. Torrei is also expected to star on VH1’s reality series “Atlanta Exes” which will debut this summer.
Martin Lawrence’s ex-wife Shamicka Lawrence was there. She posed alongside the former wife of Keenen Ivory Wayans, Daphne Wayans. We will get to see what Shamicka has been up to on May 7th when the premiere of “Hollywood Exes” airs.
Laura and Gilbert gifted their sons with two 4-foot tall cakes designed by Larenz Tate’s wife Tomasina Tate (above). Little Aloni was surprised with a giant Despicable Me minion cake and Alijah enjoyed a huge volcano cake.
Big Boy was all smiles as he entered the party.
And Hamiley had a huge grin on her face as she got her arm candy.

Cynthia Bailey appeared on "WWHL" last night where she called NeNe Leakes her worst enemy. Watch the clip inside and get the deets on Nicki Minaj's movie debuting at number one.
Following the controversial "RHOA" reunion episode, Cynthia Bailey appeared on "WWHL" with singer Rita Ora and tv host Steve Wilkos.
The ladies both donned white with Cynthia stepping out in a Catherine Malandrino dress and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes while Rita wore a Michael Kors suit and Sofia Webster shoes.
Once "WWHL" got started, Cynthia gave her side of the NeNe Leakes fallout (even calling NeNe her enemy) and addressed how she felt about Nene's appearance on "WWHL" last week.
What does Cynthia need from NeNe?
Cynthia also had a few words for NeNe (who suggesed that she be fired):
You'll recall that after last night's "RHOA" episode, things got VERY nasty on social media with NeNe attacking Cynthia on Instagram about "flip flopping" on her feelings and the downfall of their friendship.
We do hope that Cynthia (shown above with designer bff designer Kithe Brewster) will be able to patch things up with NeNe. But it's not looking good....
Part III of the "RHOA" reunion airs SUnday at 7/8E. In the meantime, watch Cynthia call NeNe her worst enemy:
In movie bits.....
Nicki Minaj is topping the box office! Nicki's film debut The Other Woman, raked in $24.7 million on opening weekend and beat out Captain America. Nicki co-stars in the film with Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton.

Amid the controversy surrounding LA Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling and his racist rant to his then girlfriend V. Stiviano, Donald is now desperately trying to save his a**. Find out what he asked his ex and get deets on who might have leaked the audio inside…
Since more audio has been released after the initial audio leak of Clippers owner Donald Sterling demanding his model ex-girlfriend V. Stiviano STOP bringing “blacks” to his games, he’s now desperately attempting to keep more possibly incriminating tapes under wraps. Don believes his former mistress is in possession of more than 100+ hours of recordings which could be detrimental to his already tainted reputation.
If you're wondering why there "might" be more tapes....a source says V told friends that Don wanted her to record his conversations because he used the recordings to refresh his memory (remember....he's 80!).
But...after Clippers made a silent statement Sunday afternoon, Donald allegedly contacted his ex-girlfriend asking her "How can we make this go away?" What did she say? The response was...talk to my lawyers!
Now......V (via her lawyers) has released a statement to TMZ stating she was not the person who leaked the tapes:
"Due to the present litigation and its absurd allegations, which Ms. Stiviano vehemently denies, Ms. Stiviano and this office have no comments at this time."
So.....if V didn't release the tapes, who else would have something to gain from this? ENTER Don's estranged wife Shelly (who sat courtside at the Clippers game on yesterday). In addition to seeking a divorce from Don, Shelly has filed a lawsuit against V making claims that she stole $1.8 million from Don.
Hmmm...This is MESSY. But it gets even dirtier.
There are reports that V is possibly working on writing a book (she's been posting pictures on Instagram with the tags #RandomHouse and #Simon&Schuster) and the whole "talk to my lawyers" statement may lead to settlement talks.
We'll keep you posted..
