The last time that I mentioned anything about i SQUARE as a group, it was in July of 2011, when group member Destiny revealed that their album was near completion.

Since then, there has been no news and it is clear from the Twitter profiles of the individual members of the group that they are now focused on their solo efforts.

Destiny is now recording and releasing music as Donna Glytch. Her Twitter profile says that she "belonged to Interscope's i SQUARE... now solo." Meanwhile, Briddy, 10beats and Mike Jay have all been working on various independent projects.

I sent a couple of Twitter messages to group members, asking them if i SQUARE was on hiatus or if the group was no more and I did not receive a reply. At the very least, it appears that the group is on the back burner. But, given Glytch's bio remarking that she formerly belonged to the group, it may be more than that.

in line with this, I will be concluding the coverage of i SQUARE here on Bad Boy Blog. If anything changes that is related to Bad Boy, we'll have an update.

It's been a long time since Bad Boy released any information regarding Ness. Since I've covered them, Bad Boy has never done a good job of communicating comings and goings at the label.

But, here at Bad Boy Blog, I tend to maintain coverage until we receive some sort of confirmation. When all parties are silent, I try to maintain coverage because, even if there is a long period of silence, it's not for me to say who is and isn't affiliated with the label.

Recently, Ness participated in a freestyle battle and some of the coverage referred to him as a former Bad Boy artist. So, I thought that it might be a good time to revisit this again, especially since the rapper is active on Twitter again.

I reached out to him today and he confirmed that he has been officially released from Bad Boy. Best of luck to Ness in his future endeavors.

According to a tweet sent by Diddy and Bad Boy-affiliated talent manager James Cruz, and retweeted by French Montana, the rapper's single "Pop That" has gone gold.

When someone says that an artist has gone gold, they are usually indicating one of two things: that the song or album has sold at least 500,000 units or that it has been certified gold by the RIAA, signifying 500,000 copies solid in the United States through tracked retail outlets. The song has not yet been added to the RIAA's searchable database, but that often happens after the artists themselves have been informed. The Daddy's House Recording Studios Facebook page labeled it as "gold certified." Once it is added to the RIAA database, we'll have an update.

Billboard reports that Machine Gun Kelly's debut album, "Lace Up," will debut on the Billboard 200 at #4, having sold 51,000 copies in retail outlets tracked by Nielsen SoundScan.

On Twitter, MGK compared the debut to where "Wild Boy" debuted (and peaked) on the Hot 100 singles chart, at #98. But, a slightly more apt comparison might be where his EP album, "Half Naked & Almost Famous," debuted. It came in at #46 with 8,519 copies sold.

Earlier this year, Machine Gun Kelly said that he was initially against "Invincible," but happy with the subsequent success of the song. Later, he said that he "hated" the song.

In a new interview with HipHopDX, he says that he apologized to Jimmy Iovine, the chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M, over those remarks.

DX: I asked if you wanted to retract at all those statements to Semtex because I know recently you felt compelled to withdraw your previous statements about hating ďInvincible.Ē I understand you actually called [Interscope Records CEO] Jimmy Iovine and basically apologized for saying that?

MGK: No, no, I had seen him in person and did that. Iím more of like an in-person type guy. ...

DX: I got a feeling you never apologized to your manager at Fuddruckers. [Laughs]

MGK: No, no Ö. That was my only [boss I've apologized to]. You know why that was my only one? Because, genuinely he is a musician. So itís like, regardless, Jimmy Iovine is a musician. That was something I had got to know. When I was in his office before Ė which is a rare thing for an artist to be Ė I was just like [in awe]. I mean, heís been around since f*****í Lennon, man. [Anybody] that was f*****í with John Lennon you canít really question that type of s***. I mean, you can, Ďcause obviously I did. But, you definitely know when not to bite the hand that is willing to feed you.

I think thatís the biggest part of being a soldier is that. Iím not trying to be one of those guys that just blames the label for mishaps in my career. At the end of the day, like I said, I started this shit organically and Iím gonna continue that. So if I fuck up itís on me.

In an interview with Complex, French Montana said beef was bad for business and referenced the 50 Cent/Rick Ross disputes as an example.

How did you get all these people? You seem to be able to secure a lot of relationships.
Iím the underdog and everybody wants the underdog to win. I feel like people have seen where I come from. When you come around me, itís not fake, itís the real. I guess a lot of people you be around, itís not really them. Itís their man thatís sitting next to them, whispering in his ear every two minutes, telling him what to do.

You know if you follow our history youíll know itís like, from when we started until now, weíve been good. Weíre not the hottest, weíre not number one, but guess what? Everyday that goes by, we getting bigger and bigger. So I would rather do that, then come in and have a short run. Iíd rather have a Cash Money run. Not to say that in a bad way, but 50 Cent could have been a lot bigger.

Really?
Of course. I feel like beef hurt him. I feel like it helped Ross unite people. Thatís why Maybach Music is one of the biggest labels. It just makes sense.

Do you think Ross will have a longer run than 50 did?
Of course, Ross is on his fifth album. And like I said, heís only getting bigger. This is going to be Rossí first platinum album. He never went platinum. So when 50 came up, 50 sold 10 million. Then after his first album he just kept on going down. You think 50 could come out and sell 10 million now?

50 Cent responded on Twitter.

It wasn't long until Montana replied.

The Bad Boy Records performance just happened at 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards. Let me set the scene.

Future began his set with "Turn Off the Lights" before transitioning to "Same Damn Time." But, it wasn't the album cut, it was the remix. Diddy rose from beneath the stage, spotlight shining, to recite his verse with Los and Future serving as hype men.

After he finished, Machine Gun Kelly floated down from the rafters for "Wild Boy," working from the stage and climbing up into an area where people were seating. All while everyone was rocking to the song.

The final song was French Montana's "Pop That." Uncle Luke, who is sampled on the hit's chorus, came out for his part and Montana emerged. As he performed his opening verse, everyone was on stage: Diddy, Los, MGK, Luke, Montana and Future. The set concluded with an explosion of fire. Diddy, throughout the set, proclaimed that Bad Boy was back.
