Berg has had a big year from a production and TV standpoint, but early this morning things took a turn for the worse as he was arrested in NYC for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, Masika Tucker.
Yung Berg — the rapper who stars on “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” — was arrested in NYC early Wednesday for allegedly brutalizing his girlfriend, and the charge is “obstruction of breathing” … TMZ has learned.
Berg — aka Hitmaka — and the woman were at the Gershwin Hotel when they got in an argument … where he allegedly grabbed her by the neck, threw her to the floor, dragged her by her hair and hit her in the face.
Apparently, the neck grab was enough for the breathing obstruction charge.
When cops came, the woman had bruises and complained she was in pain.
He’s currently in custody.

The accolades and good fortune continue to pour in for Chicago legend, No I.D., as it was announced earlier today that the executive has been promoted yet again at Def Jam — this time to the head of A&R. If you remember correctly, he was named EVP of Def Jam back in April, so his responsibilities and power at the label only continue to grow. Congratulations are most definitely in order.
Def Jam Recordings has promoted industry veteran Dion “No I.D.” Wilson to executive vice president in charge of all A&R activities at the label. It’s a title bump for No I.D., who was previously co-head of A&R. According to a press release, the producer/executive will continue to oversee his own label, ARTium Records, whose artists include Jhene Aiko and Common, and will report directly to Def Jam’s CEO, Steve Bartels…

Rumors have run rampant for months, and speculation has reached a fever pitch in the city, but today it’s officially official: J.R. Donato has inked a deal with Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang imprint.
The North Pole artist has been working closely with Wiz for a while now, and thankfully the partnership is now a done deal. In celebration of the signing, J.R. has decided to cut loose a brand new video for “Couldn’t Wait,” which was produced by Paris Beuller. This will be the last leak from Donato’s North Pole album, which drops this Thursday (11/6).
Of the signing, Wiz Khalifa tells us: “We have worked with J.R. for a while now and are happy to finally have him join Taylor Gang. I kind of scooped him up and put the Taylor Gang stamp on his as soon as I met him. J.R. is young energetic and self-sufficient. He is very in touch with his fans and what’s going on in the world around him. He looks good with us and we need his energy on the label.”
So there you have it. More power moves being made in the Chi. Hit the jump now to check out the video for “Couldn’t Wait” and definitely congratulate J.R. when you see him — he’s just joined one hell of a roster.
