In today’s YBF kids round up, we have the name of Evan Ross and his wife Ashlee Simpson’s infant daughter, an editorial of Damon Dash & Rachel Roy’s daughter Ava Dash modeling for VOGUE Mexico, Fabolous & Emily B’s sons bringing the brotherly cuteness and Kevin Liles having daddy time with his baby girl. More inside…
New baby deets have been revealed!
Singer/actor Evan Ross and his wife Ashlee Simpson welcomed a healthy, bouncing baby girl on Thursday (July 30th). And now we know her name!
Once news broke that Evan and Ashlee gave birth to their precious baby girl, Evan told PEOPLE magazine that their little bundle of joy’s name would be something unique. And unique it is.
The couple decided to name their new addition Jagger Snow Ross, we assume inspired by Rolling Stones founding member Mick Jagger. With the couple both having musical backgrounds, it sort of makes sense the two would choose a name that’s inspired by music.
The "How To Live Alone" singer took to his Instagram page to make the announcement:
He captioned, “@ashleesimpsonross I love you #JaggerSnowRoss we love you”
Little Jagger joins her big brother Bronx, whom Ashlee shares with her ex-husband/rocker Pete Wentz.
Congrats again to the couple!

It appears Future is feeling some type of way over Ciara bringing Baby Future to watch her boyfriend Russell Wilson during his NFL training camp this weekend. And he’s making it known he’s NOT feeling it. Find out what he said and check out new pictures of CiCi and Baby Future returning to the field for another day of camp inside….
You mad or nah?
Over the weekend, pics of Ciara and her son Future Jr. cheering on Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson during training camp surfaced. And the Atlanta rapper is NOT happy about it.
The “Commas” rapper made it known on social media that he’s not here for Russell spending time with his son. So much so, he posted the picture above of him holding his middle finger up. THIS guy.
But there’s more….
Last night, the “Kno the Meaning” rapper, who’s DS2 album currently sits at the No.1 spot on the Billboard 200, hopped on Twitter to air out his frustrations. While he doesn’t directly name Ciara or Russell, it’s clear who he’s referring to.
He tweets (read from the bottom up):
Ciara continues to be unbothered by her ex-fiancé’s antics, returning to the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton, WA yesterday to support her boyfriend Russell Wilson for another day of camp. And, of course, the “I Bet” singer brought Baby Future along.
But this time, Future Jr. was “stunting like his step-daddy” as he wore a jumpsuit closely resembling Russell's training jersey. Take that, Future! After field practice, little Future ran up to Russell and embraced him with a hug. How cute!
On the field, Russell was spotted dapping up former Seahawks cornerback Roy Lewis. The two were likely celebrating Russell’s new 4-year $87.6 million contract extension. Did we mention he’s guaranteed $61 million from the deal? Yep. Dude is winning right now as the 2nd highest paid baller in the league.
Seahawks cornerback and new dad Richard Sherman looked ready to get back to work. In between drills, he snapped an us-ie with Roy on the field.
And Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (aka “I’m just here so I don’t get fined") chopped it up with free safety Earl Thomas as he held his daughter Kaleigh Rose Thomas. Cute!

In terms of new releases, Drake announces the official release date of his OVO Air Jordan 10 sneakers, while Dr. Dre dishes deets on his final album. And it isn’t the long-awaited DETOX album. Plus, Ne-Yo adds his baby mama Monyetta Shaw as co-owner of his $1 million Atlanta condo. Get the deets inside…
Amid his sixth annual OVO Festival in Toronto this weekend, Drake announced the official release date of his new sneakers with the Jordan Brand.
Drizzy’s OVO Air Jordan 10 sneakers will be released to the masses at select retailers (globally) on Thursday, September 10th. And his white and gold kicks will set you back about $255.
The 6 God hit up his Instagram early this morning to make the announcement posting the picture below with the release date attached:
Dr. Dre dropped a bomb on the Hip Hop world announcing the release of his final album this weekend. But get this, it ISN’T the long awaited DETOX album!
The Hip Hop mogul’s new album titled Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre will drop in less than a week, making its arrival on Friday, August 7th (get your coins ready), marking his first album in 14 years.
So what happened to DETOX? Dre tells his Beats 1 radio show, "The Pharmacy,"
“This is something you’re not gonna hear many artists say. The reason why Detox didn’t come out is because I didn’t like it. It wasn’t good. The record, it just wasn’t good. I’ma keep it all the way 1000 with you. Seriously, I worked my a** off. I don’t think I did a good enough job, and I couldn’t do that to my fans, and I couldn’t do that to myself, to be perfectly honest with you. I just wasn’t feeling it.”
The Beats by Dre co-founder also explained how his new LP came about, dishing that he was inspired to do the album while working on the blockbuster motion picture Straight Outta Compton. He said,
“I decided during principal photography [for Straight Outta Compton] that I was leaving the set, coming to the studio, and I felt myself just so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album,” he said. “I started recording a soundtrack. I kept it under wraps, and now the album is finished.”
Well there you have it. No DETOX album…but something better (according to Dre). The upcoming 16-track compilation will feature big names such as Ice Cube, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Jill Scott and more. Check out the tracklisting below:
1. “Intro” 2. “Talk About It” (feat. King Mez & Justus)
3. “Genocide” (feat. Kendrick Lamar, Marsha Ambrosius & Candice Pillay)

In co-parenting news....
Ne-Yo is looking to receive the Baby Daddy of the Year Award. According to new reports, the “Money Can’t Buy” singer, who’s currently dating Crystal Renay, has added his ex-fiancee and mother of his two children Monyetta Shaw’s name to the deed of his $1 million Atlanta high-rise condo.
His reason? The Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter wants to be sure his daughter and son, Madilyn and Mason, are well taken care of and live a comfortable life. How sweet.
We hear it’s 3,001 square feet of gorgeousness, featuring 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a full gym, swimming pool and plenty of other amenities to keep them happy.
Well good for him. We’re sure Monyetta is one happy camper.
