A$AP Rocky must love white chicks, ’cause he pissed off Black women everywhere — including model Toccara Jones and rapper Trina — by saying dark-skinned girls have no biz wearing red lipstick.
A$AP dished his makeup tips to fashion and beauty blog The Coveteur, saying … “I feel like with the red lipstick thing, it all depends on the pair of complexion. I’m just being for real. You have to be fair skinned to get away with that.”
Jones — a Season 3 vet of “America’s Next Top Model” — tells us, “His comments show he has self-hate. Doesn’t he love himself? How do you make a comment like that when you’re brown yourself?”
Trina agrees … saying A$AP doesn’t know what he’s talking about, because she’s seen women of all shades “look beautiful in red lip wear.”
Rap’s ‘Baddest Bitch’ added A$AP can kiss something that needs no lipstick.

Is there a beef cooking between Popcaan and Chronixx?

The gritty single will be released on the MP40 Riddim, produced by Miller 9 Records.
“Yow NotNice the last time mi check courage mean brave, Yow miller true some p—- hear man seh di party buck dem think seh we party nuff, Not even Selassie or Jesus cyah save dem when di bloodc—- 40 buss,” Popcaan deejay.
Speculations are that Popcaan is responding to an alleged Chronixx diss track titled “Odd Ras” released last year.
However, Chronixx management says the single was not aimed at anyone in particular.
Popcaan is also responding to Black Ryno’s diss track titled “Courage” released after their infamous brawl at Sting 2012.
During an interview with Winford Williams of OnStage in January, Popcaan says he would not be engaging in a lyrical feud with Black Ryno.
“First thing is me and that boy not going to clash… I have to have a different rival because he is not qualify,” Popcaan said.
Christian hip-hop icon Lecrae recently commented on a controversial text conversation between him and “professing” Christian rapper The Game, regarding the latter’s Jesus Piece album that offended the Christian community.
Upset with the way The Game portrayed the exchange, Lecrae wants to set the record straight.
“It didn’t go down like [Game] said it went down, but it’s love,” Lecrae told The Daily Caller.
The Game was the first to reveal the conversation even happened. Back in December The Game told HipHopDX that though he had never met Lecrae, the Christian rapper felt the need to address the album’s content.
“I know of him, just never met him,” Game said at the time. “And he was sort of concerned with the way that some of the lyrics were coming across, and the portrayal of Jesus on the cover. But after we finished having an in-depth text conversation, I explained my vision and what I was doing, and at the end of the text we didn’t necessarily agree but I told him good luck on his path and he wished me good luck on mine.”
Lecrae first tried to contact Game before he released Jesus Piece, which features Jesus on the cover looking like a gang member with a gold chain, and red bandana on his face.
The two rappers have spoken several times since then and Lecrae says they’ve reached a mutual understanding.
Jesus Piece debuted at #6 on the Billboard chart and Lecrae was the first Christian hip-hop artist to win a Grammy. Seems like both have been blessed by God but use their gifts for two seemingly different purposes.
