The artist, born Darryl Kevin Richardson, and a friend were found outside of the car on the ground when authorities arrived at the scene, according to TMZ. Both were incoherent and could not explain the events leading up to the wreck. 

While the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star believes his pal fell asleep at the wheel before the vehicle crashed into a pole, police say Scrappy was actually the driver. 

The 34-year-old, who suffered a broken foot, is currently recovering at a hospital, and he later took to Instagram to update his followers on his progress.

“Man God is great I can’t even show u the car o, thank God for given me a fam and people that rides with me,” he wrote as the caption of a picture of him in the hospital. “God saved our lives.”

He said his mother, known as Momma Dee, and his wife Bambi are at his bedside.

Scappy has released five studio albums since 2006. In 2012, he was cast as a member of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.” He and wife are expecting their first child together.

“As an African American woman who founded her own media company and became a cultural icon watched by millions of viewers around the world, Winfrey harnessed the power of the media to break down barriers, empower herself, and inspire others,” the museum stated on its website.

The exhibit will feature photos and videos illuminating the mogul and activist’s long career, as well as original artifacts from Harpo Studios in Chicago, home of the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Visitors will experience content divided into three parts: “America Shape Oprah,” a biographical section leading to Winfrey’s rise; “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which dives into the 25-year history of the hit show and “Oprah Shapes America,” a section that examines Winfrey’s role as host and executive producer amid America’s changing race and culture issues.

“What’s interesting is the same way America thought about Walter Cronkite — you could trust Walter Cronkite and his opinion — they trust Oprah,” museum director Lonnie G. Bunch III told the Washington Post. “An African American woman becomes the person America turns to.”

Issa Rae wears belt with N-word to CFDA Awards

CFDA Awards host Issa Rae had social media buzzing on Monday night — thanks to both her bold outfit choices and her monologue.

The “Insecure” star didn’t shy away from mocking rapper and designer Kanye West, husband of Influencer of the Year winner Kim Kardashian.

“I’m about as fashionable as Kanye is black. Only when it’s convenient,” she said, according to USA Today. “That joke was my choice, just like slavery.”

West came under fire in May for a TMZ interview in which he claimed that slavery was a “choice.” The statements followed days of unpredictable behavior, in which he praised President Donald Trump and referenced the “sunken place” from the film “Get Out” (a comparison wife Kardashian West told Elle was “dumb”).

Rae walked the carpet wearing a custom Pyer Moss blue gown that featured more than 180,000 Swarovski crystals — and it had an added accessory that grabbed even more attention.

Pyer Moss designer Kerby Jean-Raymond spoke to People all about his work with Rae, and how the complex look came together.

“(It was) interesting and new for me because a lot of it was done via phone and pictures because of our work schedules,” he said. “The sketching process was very fun.”

As for her belt, which featured the words “Every (N-word) Is a Star,” it was all Kerby’s idea. It’s the title of a song by Boris Gardiner that played during Pyer Moss’ fall/winter 2018 runway show (and appeared on the soundtrack for Oscar-wining best picture “Moonlight”).

And many on Twitter praised Rae and Jean-Raymond for their choice.

Overall, Jean-Raymond said working with Rae was “important” simply because “it’s Issa.”

“Comedically, she’s my spirit animal. It’s also very important because (the CFDAs are) in Brooklyn, a mile away from where I grew up,” he said about the awards’ new venue this year.

But the gown wasn’t the host’s only look. For the show, Rae changed into a bright green Sergio Hudson double-breasted suit.

Chrissy Teigen shares precious video of Miles sleeping in her arms

It’s never too early in the day to take a nap.

On Sunday morning, Chrissy Teigen shared in an Instagram story a sweet video of her and John Legend‘s 2-week-old son, Miles Theodore, seemingly fast asleep in her arms.

While cradling her slumbering son, the new mom seemed determined not to disturb the bundled up baby as she mouthed a few words to the camera.

Teigen, 32, and the 39-year-old “All of Me” singer are also parents to daughter Luna Simone, 2.

Teigen’s sweet moment with Miles comes just days after she and her husband donned their best ‘70s threads for a glamorous disco date night.

“slayin alive slayin alive aaaahahahahhhaahhahhahhagaggaggaghahakdkdkjdjdishsbjsidiixjshshyznsizos,” Teigen captioned a shot of the pair lounging together by a pool table as she referenced the classic Bee Gees song “Stayin’ Alive” used in the movie “Saturday Night Fever.”

But even though the pair seemed to be enjoying their night, Teigen might be suffering the consequences for the rest of the week.

While popping her body in another pool table-adjacent shot, Teigen jokingly wrote, “I will be sore from this” all week.

After welcoming their second child, Teigen and Legend only waited a couple of days before sharing the first photo of their baby boy along with his name. Teigen also told her Twitter followers that Miles was born “a few weeks early” ahead of his June due date, “so he’s litttttttle and makes the teeniest noises.”

While the couple’s 2-year-old daughter hasn’t had that much time to adjust to being a big sister yet, the pair are already having some sweet sibling moments.

On Tuesday, Teigen shared a sweet photo of Luna giving her newborn brother his pacifier as he laid on a fuzzy surface in his crib. Fittingly, the new mother captioned the image with a heart emoji.

Kanye West reveals he was diagnosed with a 'mental condition' at age 39: 'It's a superpower'

Kanye West is continuing to open up about his mental health.

“I had never been diagnosed until I was 39,” West said during an interview recorded with radio host Big Boy following the 40-year-old rapper’s Wyoming listening party for his new album “YE.”

After clarifying that he was diagnosed with a “mental condition,” West added, “But like I said on the album, it’s not a disability, it’s a superpower.”

Although the musician declined to specify what he had been diagnosed with during the interview, West had already confirmed on his new album that he is bipolar, calling it his “superpower.”

Additionally, the album’s artwork — which West shot on the way to the listening party — features an image of the mountains with a lime green text overlay reading, “I hate being bipolar it’s awesome.”

In the interview, West also revealed that following the backlash he got for suggesting slavery is “a choice” during an interview with TMZ, he “completely redid the album” and even “took out a bar” referencing the controversial topic.

“It was just too sensitive,” West explained, adding that he felt “so blessed and privileged because think about people that have mental issues that are not Kanye West, that can’t go and make [an album] and make it feel like it’s all good.”

“Think about somebody that does exactly what I did at TMZ and they just do that at work, right? But then Tuesday morning, they come in and they lost their job and they can’t go back and make that. That’s why God put that on me at age 40,” he continued.

However, while the rapper may have edited out a reference to the hot-button topic, he did reveal how his wife Kim Kardashian West reacted after the interview was published on track “Wouldn’t Leave.”

“I said, ‘Slavery a choice,’ they say, ‘How, Ye?’ / Just imagine if they caught me on a wild day / Now I’m on 50 blogs gettin’ 50 calls / Wife calling screaming saying we’re about to lose it all / I had to calm her down ‘cos she couldn’t breathe / I told her she could leave me now but she wouldn’t leave,” he rapped. “This is what they mean for better or for worse, huh?”

While many fans have supported West’s new album — it currently holds the No. 1 spot on the U.S. iTunes charts — the rapper took some time out of his day on Saturday to give a shoutout to one of his youngest listeners: his daughter North West.

One day after releasing his new album, West shared an adorable video of his almost 5-year-old daughter singing the chorus to his song “Make No Mistake.”

In the cute clip, North holds onto a box of chocolate milk in the backseat of a car while looking directly at the camera and singing, “Make no mistake, I still love you.”

Overflowing with love, her proud papa simply captioned the clip with three heart-eyed emojis.

The incident occurred in front of the W Hotel in Times Square when a gunman fired shots at the building, TMZ reported. 

The shooter did not strike 22-year-old Keef, whose legal name is Keith Cozart, but instead struck the signage.

“Chief Keef, who was in New York for an event, along with his team and the other members of Glory Boyz Entertainment (GBE) that were traveling with him are safe,” Keef's representative Portia Stamps told Billboard.

Police believe the shooting may have been a result of the musician’s feud with Brooklyn rapper 6ix9ine. 

As news of the shooting spread, some headed to social media to express their concern.
