From Hacienda Heights to Hollywood, Fergie took over the streets of L.A. while shooting a video for her DJ Mustard-produced single “L.A.LOVE (la la)” over the weekend. The Black Eyed Peas frontwoman loaded up her tricked-out double-decker “love bus” with friends and rode through her ‘hood.

“Hanging with my boy, @YG on the #LALOVE set. #MLKblvd,” tweeted Fergie.

She is working with Mike WiLL Made-It, Rae Sremmurd, and will.i.am on her first solo album in eight years.

“This next record put me in the Guinness Book of World Records,” said Ashanti before performing the Biggie-sampled song, which spent 10 weeks at No. 1 in 2002.

Draped in a gold fur-lined jacket, a slimmer Rick Ross bumrushed the stage with French Montana and some twerking fans for “Pop That” and brought out Stalley for “One More Shot.”

Rick Ross

The Biggest Bawse is slimming down. Rick Ross has shared some new photos of his dramatic weight loss.

Thanks to his high-intensity CrossFit training program, which he dubbed “RossFit,” he has shed an estimated 100 pounds.

“I just wanted to get in some better shape, put myself in a better position,” he told Tim Westwood in May. “I still eat the way I want to eat…I just go to the gym. I do this shit called CrossFit. I call it ‘RossFit.’”

The MMG mogul has also been laying off the Wingstop. “The most I used to do for exercise was stand up to count the money,” he said. “But now they give me fruit to eat. I forgot what fruit tasted like. I eat pears now and shit like that.”

His fans reacted to his new look on Instagram. “Didn’t even recognize him,” wrote one commenter, while another added, “He is too skinny now, nooo.”

Rozay is getting in shape for his upcoming album release. On November 24, he will drop Hood Billionaire featuring Jay Z, R. Kelly, and Project Pat.
