Kendrick Lamar’s ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ Leaked a Week Early

Last week the title, tracklist, and release date of To Pimp A Butterfly, Kendrick Lamar’s hotly anticipated follow-up to 2012’s Good Kid… M.A.A.D. City, were all unveiled. And although To Pimp A Butterfly was scheduled for a March 23 release, late Sunday night Lamar tweeted a link to iTunes that allowed fans to buy a clean version of the album. Shortly thereafter, the unedited, explicit version became available for download, with the album appearing on Spotify shortly after that. But while this may seem like yet another surprise album release from a high-profile artist, Anthony Tiffith of Top Dawg Entertainment—which represents Lamar—tweeted that the album’s release was, in fact, the record label’s mistake.

As of now To Pimp A Butterfly has been pulled from iTunes, with only the album’s first single, “The Blacker The Berry,” available for download. The record is still up on Spotify, however. Those looking to hear the album before March 23 may want to hurry, however, in case that stream ends up getting pulled too.

Somebody’s getting fired.

Earl Hayes Accused Wife Stephanie Moseley of Affair With Trey Songz

music-trey-songz-Earl-Hayes-Stephanie-MoseleySpeculation mounts about what led to the tragic deaths of Stephanie Moseley, 30, and her husband, Earl Hayes, 34, some saying that the rapper went into a jealous rage over the VH1 star’s alleged adulterous relationship with Trey Songz.

“He was crushed and never got over it,” a source close to Hayes told TMZ.

Apparently the infidelity with the singer was one of many that he accused her of having, and was the cause for a separation between the couple two years ago.

Songz has not responded to the rumors, but did post a message of prayer for the actress/back-up dancer soon after news broke that she and Hayes were found dead inside an L.A. apartment. “R.I.P babygirl. Once an angel on earth, now watching over us from Heaven. You’ll b missed but never forgotten. Love,” he tweeted.

An LAPD SWAT Team responded to a call for backup Monday morning (Dec. 8) after patrol officers were alerted to shots fired, and heard additional shots themselves.

According to reports from the initial investigation, Hayes shot Moseley, then turned the gun on himself in an apparent murder-suicide. The LAPD is still investigating.

VH1 Star Stephanie Moseley Dead Alongside Rapper Husband Earl Hayes In Apparent Murder-Suicide

rapper-suicideRapper Earl Hayes and his wife Stephanie Moseley, actress/dancer on VH1 series, “Hit the Floor,” were found dead in their Los Angeles apartment Monday, according to TMZ.

Multiple reports state that neighbors could hear a woman screaming Monday morning and gunshots. SWAT arrived on the scene and found two bodies believed to be Hayes and Moseley. 

VH1 said in a statement the network was “incredibly saddened” at the news of Moseley’s passing.

“VH1 and the entire ‘Hit The Floor’ family send our thoughts and condolences to her family and friends at this difficult time,” spokesman Chris Delhomme told Fox411.

Burrel Wilks, self described life coach to Hayes, has confirmed the news to press.

“Stephanie was exceptionally beautiful, an absolutely amazing and incredible dancer, and judging by how the other girls spoke about her, a lovely human being,” co-star Dean Cain said. “I’m heartbroken and saddened.”

Hayes was once signed to boxer Floyd Mayweather’s record label and was often seen partying with the famous boxer. Before her VH1 series, Moseley had been a backup dancer for Chris Brown and Britney Spears among other performers.

Chris Brown instagrammed a photo in memory of the dancer with a caption, “RIP baby girl. Danced with me on tour and was always the coolest person. My prayers go out to you and HAZE family.”
