Somali father defends FGM after daughter, 10, dies

Image copyright AFP The father of a 10-year-old girl who died after undergoing female genital mutilation (FGM) in Somalia has defended the practice. Dahir Nur’s daughter died of blood loss on 17 July, two days after being taken to a traditional circumciser. But he told Voice of America (VOA) “people in the area are content” with FGM even considering the dangers, adding it is the country’s “culture”. According to Unicef, 98% of girls and women in Somalia have undergone FGM. This is despite Somalia’s constitution prohibiting – although not outlawing – the practice, which involves the partial or total removal of the female external genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons and can cause profound health ...

Trippie Redd Stops Show to Help Passed Out Fan

Trippie Redd Stops Show for Passed Out Fan We Gotta Worry ‘Bout Her! 7/22/2018 12:01 PM PDT EXCLUSIVE Trippie Redd put on his good Samaritan hat this weekend when a fan passed out at his concert, which he abruptly stopped to help the girl out.  The Ohio rapper was performing in Minneapolis Saturday night when a female in the crowd collapsed. Eyewitnesses tell us Trippie noticed the commotion and quickly cut the music to figure out what had happened … and soon started demanding someone help her. It almost sounds like he’s chastising concert-goers for standing around — although, it’s unclear from the video who is (or isn’t) springing into action on the ground level. Either way, Trippie did his part. We’re told he threw a water bottle out to the girl,...

Floyd Mayweather Goes Off On 50 Cent: “You Are A Certified Snitch”

The frenemy relationship between 50 Cent and boxing star Floyd Mayweather has apparently veered back into the enemy territory. The undefeated boxer slammed his sometimes friend, sometimes rival in an Instagram post on Saturday (July 22). Mayweather directed a myriad of insults at 50, claiming the G-Unit boss is a snitch and calling out his relationship with his son, Marquise Jackson. “Curtis ‘Confidential Informant’ Jackson, you’re mad because your oldest son Marquees mother doesn’t want to be with you!” Mayweather wrote. “Your Son, your own flesh and blood don’t want nothing to do with you! You haven’t had a hit song on radio in who knows when and you’re definitely not hot enough to even sell records anymore so Interscope dropped you. You are jealous of any rapper, athlete or entertainer ...

T.I. Calls Grand Hustle A Cultural Institution & Reaffirms His Creation Of Trap Music

In the latest installment of Soulful Sundays, HipHopDX’s Editor-In-Chief Trent Clark chats with Grand Hustle CEO T.I. at Comfort LA in downtown Los Angeles. “I’m always me,” the rapper says with a smile when asked how he’s able to juggle so many business endeavors. “I mean, I don’t ever put any hats on that don’t fit.” While he does have his hand in many ventures, music is still the first priority. August 19 marks the 15th anniversary of his platinum-selling sophomore record Trap Muzik, as well as his Grand Hustle imprint. “I’m not going to tell you what we have planned,” he says, alluding to a series of interactive experiences. “Just know it’s gonna be an event.” With the anniversary talk on the table, the persistent topic of T.I. coining the term “trap music” came up — and the rapper gla...
