Meek Mill plans to slap Cosmo hotel with discrimination lawsuit

Meek Mill and the Cosmopolitan hotel are allegedly headed to court.

On Tuesday (May 28), Mill’s lawyer Joe Tacopina confirmed to TMZ that the hip-hop star plans to sue the Las Vegas hospitality company for “heavily monetary damages” over racial discrimination.

Tacopina is accusing several of the hotel’s personnel of “lying and humiliating Meek” upon his arrival at the Marquee Dayclub on Saturday (May 25).

“The assertion that the Cosmopolitan denied Meek because of capacity concerns at Marquee Dayclub is outright false,” Tacopina told TMZ after Meek was denied entry. “In the recorded video, Meek also inquired about getting a meal at one of the hotel’s restaurants, yet their security team continued to deny Meek and said he would be arrested for trespassing regardless of location in the premises. The Cosmopolitan’s conduct continues to be deplorable.”

For his part, Meek once again addressed the entire situation on Tuesday morning. “And I don’t care about that casino I bring in millions every time my name mentioned on a Vegas casino event where I am always welcome … but y’all not gone just treat us like shit and act like it’s normal Put some respect on our race [‘]please and thank you,[‘]” Meek wrote in the tweet.

The conflict is said to have occurred after the hotel’s security team denied Mill entry into DJ Mustard’s show. They allegedly threatened to arrest him if he got out of his vehicle.

Mill has been on a straight and narrow path since being released from prison last year, but it seems his criminal history is taunting him as the hotel also claims he has been blacklisted from the property over a previous incident with their security on an undisclosed date.

La Doña releases debut EP ‘Algo Nuevo’

Published

on

La Doña by Thalia Gochez

Latina artist La Doña has officially released her debut Algo Nuevo EP via Human Re-Sources. Produced heavily by Doña herself, the EP includes previously-released singles “Quién Me La Paga” (“Whose Going To Pay For It?” in English), an infectious cumbia-led track that denounces life’s ever-increasing expenses, and the self-coined “femmeton” anthem “Le Lo Lai,” which reverts the machismo paradigm so prevalent in reggaeton and hip-hop.

Speaking on the EP, La Doña says: “Algo nuevo is a gift of something new; it is a statement about the versatility of musical forms and diasporic rhythms; it is a marriage of the traditional with the contemporary; it is an offering and a statement to la raza, the boss girls, las malas, the non-binary and queer homies, ‘I see you, I am you, and I made this for you.'” 

The EP is a fruitful and masterful collage of La Doña’s world. The artist composes songs influenced heavily by Bay Area hyphy styles, lowrider culture, Mission muralismo, and musica de la (U.S./Mexico) frontera, while exploring radical brown femininity alongside love and pain.

Algo Nuevo also arrives alongside La Doña’s release show at The Chapel in San Francisco tonight where she’ll be joined by Sazon Libre, Chulita Vinyl Club, and Mariachi Juvenil La Misión.

After touring North America in support of Cuco, opening for legendary Mexican rock group Café Tacvba, and being named one of YouTube Music’s Foundry artists with past alumni including Rosalía, Dua Lipa, Chloe X Halle, and Gunna, La Doña is entering 2020 in full force.

“Heathers”and “Jawbreaker” vibes ooze from The Naked and Famous new video

Published

on

The Naked and Famous are giving off a dark comedy vibe (think Heathers and Jawbreaker) in a major way with their new music video for their latest song “Bury Us”.


Alisa Xayalith accidentally murders her boyfriend, leading herself to enlist bandmate Thom Powers to help cover up the evidence. Additional chaos ensues all amidst bright colors, perfectly matching the shimmering synth sound of the track.

“Bury Us” is a track off of the duo’s forthcoming album ‘Recover’ which is a full-throttle dosage of the 2010s-era synth pop sound they helped define (remember “Young Blood”?!) mixed with a powerful sentiment of survival, and the very human process of self-preservation — of saving, choosing and celebrating oneself in a world constantly trying to put us down.
