Cardi B's 'Fast & Furious 9' Role Revealed Following 'Up' Frenzy
Veteran Hip Hop Exec Dame Dash Proposes To Newborn Son's Mother Ahead Of Studio Relaunch
      Cardi B is taking her talents to the silver screen. After un- veiling her involvement with the delayed Fast & Furious 9 in 2019, her exact role has been uncovered with another official trailer dropped during the Super Bowl on Sunday (Febru- ary 7).
The Bronx bombshell will be playing the character named Leysa, who is tied to Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto past and returns to make her pres- ence felt in Fast 9. Cardi was initially connected to the Fast series in 2019 when she was seen on set alongside Vin Diesel, who posted a video with the “WAP” rapper.
In March 2020, Diesel
shared that his daughter actu- ally suggested Cardi have a role inF9 while appearing as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, “I said, ‘It’s a great idea!’ As she’s listening to ‘I Like It Like That.'”
The 28-year-old isn’t a novice in the Hollywood scene, she starred in the critically-ac- claimed Hustlers in 2019 along- side fellow Bronxite Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu.
Cardi isn’t playing in 2021. With a possible sophomore album on deck, Cardi exploded into the New Year with her catchy “Up” single, which should earn her another Top 5 entry position on the Billboard Hot 100.
Roc-A-Fella co-founder Dame Dash has proposed to the mother of his newborn son. On Tuesday (February 9), the longtime music executive shared an Instagram photo of the moment he got down on one knee and asked now-fi- ancée Raquel Horn to marry him.
He wrote in the caption, “@raquelmhorn it’s official I love you forever.”
RAQUEL AND DAME Dash and Horn welcomed
their son in November 2020
with the 49-year-old an- nouncing on Instagram, “We did it! @raquelmhorn what you did last night was incred- ible your a warrior a fine war- rior ..I love you and the life you created for us ... thank you.”
The couple began dating in 2015 and Dash told HipHol- lywood in 2019 he hasn’t been this happy since he was dating the late R&B icon Aaliyah.
Jay-Z And Michael B. Jordan Joining Forces For Muhammad Ali Amazon Series
 Jay-Z is teaming up with actor Michael B. Jordan to put together an Amazon lim- ited series based on the life of Muhammad Ali. With the late boxing icon’s estate also involved, the show — tenta- tively titled The Greatest — will be executive produced by Jordan’s Outlier Society and Hov’s Roc Nation with Josh Wakely on board as the writer.
During a recent interview with Deadline, Jordan spoke about what the upcoming se- ries will entail and his excite-
ment about honoring Ali as a boxing fan first and foremost. “It’s an incredible honor and I bring tons of respect to it,” he said. “It’s a healthy weight to
carry, to be able to tell the story of Muhammad Ali. It’s called The Greatest right now and we’re partnered with Roc Nation on the music side of things.
“It’s a project where we’ve partnered with the estate and we’ll be able to tell this story with no red tape. It’s a limited series that will really dive into the life of Muhammad Ali. I’m not going to be too specific beyond that, but we’ll be able to get to know him in ways we haven’t had a chance to be- fore.”
  Dr. Dre With Mystery Woman Amid Divorce From Nicole Young
  Dr. Dre appears to be re- covering well.
The music mogul, 55, was spotted leaving BOA Steak- house in Los Angeles Wednes- day night with a mystery woman amid his divorce from estranged wife Nicole Young and recovery from a brain aneurysm.
The woman wore head-to- toe houndstooth with her sheer black bra exposed, showing off her toned abs and stomach tat- too, while Dre tried to shield himself from photographers with his black hat.
The duo exited BOA through the side door with masks on, helping to hide their identities. The Beats by Dre founder was first hospitalized in early Jan- uary with a brain aneurysm and released a couple of weeks later. Two days later, he posted a since-deleted photo of him- self back in the studio.
Dr. Dre and a mystery woman are spotted leaving BOA Steakhouse amid his divorce from Nicole Young.
 While holed up at Cedars- Sinai, Dre agreed to pay Young $2 million in tempo- rary spousal support in their bitter $800 million divorce battle.
Insiders told Page Six that the stress of his divorce, in ad- dition to his health scare, swayed his decision to give into some of Young’s re- quests.
Young filed for divorce
from Dre in June after 24 years of marriage. She subse- quently filed a bombshell law- suit against him, claiming she co-owns the trademark to his name — as well as his land- mark album, “The Chronic.”
Dre also has put up a fight against Young, threatening to summon every single one of their wedding guests in an at- tempt to prove he didn’t co- erce her into signing a prenup.
