Music Biz: Britney Spears is Drafting a New Will to Protect Her Kids

EXCLUSIVE Britney Spears is going back to the drawing board and redrafting her will ... all for the benefit of her 2 boys. Britney's longtime conservators have filed legal docs asking for permission to change her will, which was drafted before she gave birth to Sean, now 11, and Jayden, now 10. We've learned the current will simply provides ... when Britney dies her kids inherit her entire estate. Problem is ... they would get her entire fortune -- estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars -- when they turn 18. It's not wise to open the vault all at once to 18-year-olds. Our sources say the new estate plan creates a trust for the kids, who will inherit her entire estate. But they will not have access to the entire fortune until they turn 35.

Music Biz: How DJ Sickamore Went From Hustling Mixtapes to Music Exec at Interscope...

Randall "Sickamore" Medford may not be a household name, but if you're anywhere near the rap game you know he's been an integral part of the success of hip-hop heavyweights like YG, Travis Scott, and more. Now a senior music exec at Interscope Records, Sickamore continues to play a key role behind-the-scenes for established and up-and-coming acts alike, and based on his track record, you'd be wise to bet on what and who he's working with. In our new episode of The Culture, Jinx chops it up with Sickamore to find out how the Brooklyn representative turned his passion for music into a career hip-hop heads could only dream of. A major turning point in Sickamore's journey can be traced back to his days of selling bootleg mixtapes on Canal Street in Manhattan, which then led to an A&R gig with Atlantic Records at the age of 21. The jump from hustling to corporate didn't effect Sickamore's drive, who saw the transition as an opportunity to capitalize on som..
