Macklemore Reportedly Involved In Serious Head-On Collision

(Radio.com) Macklemore is reportedly recovering from a serious head-on collision in Langley, Washington. Though his representatives haven't been reached for comment, the incident allegedly took place on Friday.

According to a TMZ report, a pickup truck crossed into oncoming traffic and struck Macklemore's Mercedes. The pickup truck driver was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt and, upon impact, collided with the windshield.

After he was revived, he reportedly told officers he'd had a drink "awhile back" and gave incoherent answers. He was driven to the hospital where a blood draw was administered to determine if he was under the influence. Read more here.

Q-Tip Says NYC Show Was Tribe Called Quest's 'Last'

(Radio.com) The death of Phife Dawg forever changed the face and sound of A Tribe Called Quest. The hip-hop icons performed at New York's Panorama Music Festival and Q-Tip shared a cryptic message about the group's future:

'This is our last show here in New York, that's it -- as Tribe," he said earlier this week. "You know, we gotta honor our brother, Phife Dawg." It's not clear whether the remaining Tribesmen plan to go their separate ways, or regroup under a different name. Either way, the Panorama set marks a historic final hometown performance for the Queens rappers--and Phife's parents were in the audience.

'We wanna thank everybody in New York City for supporting A Tribe Called Quest since 1988 up to now," Q-Tip continued. 'And we want to thank all of y'all who extended all of your wishes and empathy and prayers -- not only to us, but to Phife's family as well." Read more here.

West's team filed a claim just days after his meltdown during a Sacramento concert and subsequent tour cancellation stemming from a mental breakdown which required hospitalization.

According to the report, West's company has not received payment from the insurers and feel they are simply getting the run-around. And, rather than attempting to settle civilly, the defendants immediately secured legal counsel.

"What do I think's the right thing to do? I think, obviously, you have to be in a good position mentally," the former One Direction singer told 92.3 AMP Radio. "But I also think to a certain degree, when you're signing up for something you should see it through."

Tomlinson was asked what keeps him motivated in the moments when burn-out starts to creep in. The answer was easy: his fans."There are days that it's harder than others, but wherever you can give back it's really important," the "Back to You" singer said. Read more here.

Now, Kelly has canceled three stops of his After Party tour: Shows in New Orleans, Dallas and Baton Rouge will not take place.
