NBA Youngboy blessed fans with three new singles this week, including "Rich N***a View," "Blow Yo Rocket," and "Get Me Killed," continuing his busy 2020.
Not unusual for Youngboy, he raps about love and heartbreak on "Get Me Killed." The music video, filmed in black and white, shows the rapper hanging out with his children, working behind the scenes, and more.
Youngboy's latest album, Nobody Safe, a collaborative mixtape with Rich The Kid, was released earlier this month as a surprise for fans. Despite the heavy workload, the rapper is showing no signs of slowing down.
Check out "Get Me Killed" below.
She said she with me forever
I tell her no that's 'til
'Til I do some wrong or find someone better
Nah that's real

The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired general manager Dave Caldwell, the team announced following their 27-25 loss to the Cleveland Browns. The Jags are now 1-10 and last in the AFC South.
"I've met with Dave Caldwell to express my appreciation for his service to the Jacksonville Jaguars as our general manager," Owner Shad Khan said in a statement. "Dave was exceptionally committed and determined to bring a winner to Jacksonville, but unfortunately, his efforts were not rewarded with the results our fans deserve and our organization expects. Our football operation needs new leadership, and we will have it with a new general manager in 2021."
Caldwell had served as the Jags' general manager since 2013, registering just one winning season in his time with the organization.
In addition to Caldwell, Houston Texans' GM-coach Bill O'Brien, Detroit Lions' Bob Quinn, and Atlanta Falcons' Thomas Dimitroff have all been fired during the season.
Trent Baalke will serve as the interim GM until a new manager is hired. The team is expected to finish the season with a top-three pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, barring an unforeseen win streak to finish the year.
The Jags will play the Vikings next Sunday at 1:00 PM.

Dr. Anthony Fauci of the White House Coronavirus Task Force says it will be months before children have access to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Pool / Getty Images“It’s going to be months. And the reason is traditionally when you have a situation like a new vaccine, you want to make sure, because children as well as pregnant women, are vulnerable,” Fauci told NBC anchor Chuck Todd on Meet the Press. “So, before you put it into the children, you’re going to want to make sure you have a degree of efficacy and safety that is established in an adult population, particularly an adult, normal population.”
As for the general population, Dr. Moncef Slaoui, the head of Operation Warp Speed, says Americans could begin having access to the vaccine by Dec. 11: “Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunization sites within 24 hours from the approval,” said Slaoui. “So I expect maybe on day two after approval on the 11th or the 12th of December."
Fauci says even those who have already recovered from COVID-19 will be advised to get the vaccine: “When the trials were done, the Moderna trials and other trials, and we looked at the data, there were people who, when you looked at their antibody response, they actually gave indication that they had already been infected and actually recovered quite well,” Fauci said. “And at the time of the vaccine study, they were actually well and normal, as it were, and yet they still got vaccinated.”
Both Moderna and Pfizer have announced vaccines with over 90% efficiency rates.

In honor of the late Chadwick Boseman's 44th birthday, Disney+ has added a new Marvel introduction in Black Panther which features the actor's performance as King T’Challa.
"To all fans of #BlackPanther: watch the film on #DisneyPlus late tonight, for a special tribute to someone that was and will always be near and dear to our hearts," Disney executive Bob Iger wrote on Twitter, Sunday.
The new intro shows concept art from Black Panther as well as footage from Boseman’s work in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.
“In times of crisis, the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers," reads a quote from T'Challa.
Boseman passed earlier this year after a four year battle with colon cancer. "A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much," a statement shared in his social media read at the time. "From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy."
"Continue watching over us King. Happy Birthday. Miss you," wrote Boseman's Black Panther costar Michael B. Jordan, on Instagram.
Black Panther 2 is expected to release in 2022.

Dave Prowse, the British actor known for playing Darth Vador in the original Star Wars trilogy, has died at 85-years-old.
"It’s with great regret and heart-wrenching sadness for us and millions of fans around the world, to announce that our client Dave Prowse MBE has passed away at the age of 85," Bowington Management, his management company, announced on Twitter, Sunday.
Prowse was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2018.
While Prowse performed as Vader in the iconic black suit, it was actor James Earl Jones who provided a voice for the character.
"So sad to hear David Prowse has passed," Mark Hamil, who played Prowse's on-screen son, in Luke Skywalker, said. "He was a kind man & much more than Darth Vader. Actor-Husband-Father-Member of the Order of the British Empire-3 time British Weightlifting Champion & Safety Icon the Green Cross Code Man. He loved his fans as much as they loved him."
Prowse also performed as the monster in The Horror of Frankenstein in 1970 and as a bodyguard in Stanley Kubrick's legendary film A Clockwork Orange in 1971.
"May the force be with him, always!" his former agent, Thomas Bowington, said to BBC. "Though famous for playing many monsters -- for myself, and all who knew Dave and worked with him, he was a hero in our lives."

The Denver Broncos entered Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints without a quarterback available to play after all four rostered QBs were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Starting QB Drew Lock has now apologized for not wearing a mask around Jeff Driskel, who tested positive for COVID-19, Thursday.
Kevin C. Cox / Getty Images"In a controlled and socially distanced area, we let our masking slip for a limited amount of time. An honest mistake, but one I will own," Lock wrote in a statement. "I sincerely apologize and I fully understand why these safety precautions are so important. Doing the right thing for a majority of the time is not good enough.
"I pray for my teammates' health, safety and success today. I look forward to getting back on the field next week. Go Broncos.''
The NFL's COVID-19 guidelines dictate that masks must be worn around other players.
The team did not forfeit the match, opting to start practice squad wide receiver Kendall Hinton under center. Hinton played as a duel-threat quarterback at Southern Durham high school.
Lock, Brett Rypien, and Blake Bortles are not experiencing any coronavirus symptoms.
The Broncos enter Week 12 at 4-7 and third in the AFC West.

NBA Youngboy might be among the hardest working rappers out right now, even if he tries to detach himself from the rest of the world. He's released a few projects this year. Most recently, he and Rich The Kid teamed up for Nobody Safe which swiftly followed Until I Return. Truthfully, Youngboy has released so much music this year that it's hard to actually track his releases.
Anyway, it doesn't look like NBA Youngboy plans on ditching this formula anytime soon. The rapper dropped off his latest single, "Rich N***a View" earlier this weekend which came along with two other singles, "Get Me Killed" and "Blow Yo Rocket." Evidently, Youngboy is keeping his foot on the pedal, even as the year comes to an end.
Stop in the back, I ain't no robbin' me
Down for the gang, she can buy for free
Perc and the Xan, lay it down for a week

Everytime D Double E pops out, it's always some heat. The legendary grime MC emerged a month ago with the release of his project, Double Or Nothing. Stacked with 12 songs, E delivered collaborations with several major names in the UK scene, both young and old. Artists like Ms Banks, Kano, and Giggs were all scattered across the tracklist but we were left wondering why there wasn't a Skepta feature anywhere. Thankfully, D Double E has resolved it with his latest offering, "DON." Teaming up with Skepta, D Double E takes the "Ignorance Is Bliss" rapper back to his grime roots as they swap bars over heavy eerie grime-centric production along with a cinematic visual to accompany.
Check out the latest offering from D Double E and Skepta below.
Talk about clash, I'll hit him where the nerve is
I don't know why I ever ask man, "Wagwan?"
'Cause I already know what the word is
Fake love got a big man like me flyin' 'round
With a tool in the car like I don't know what a bird is

Leave it to Statik Selektah to have a slew of top tier MCs on wax together. His new project, The Balancing Act does just that. The legendary producer enlists the likes of Conway, Nas, Black Thought, Joey Bada$$, and even Jack Harlow for the album but among the many posse cuts, it's the union of Dave East and Method Man on wax that truly stands as one of the best tracks. The Harlem rapper and the Wu-Tang MC link up on "Hard Living" where they reflect on their upbringing in New York City over grimey East Coast-centric production and crispy drums. Given that Dave East played Method Man on Wu-Tang: An American Saga, their new collaboration feels like a full circle moment.
Peep the cut below.
Off the rip though, I pull that Lil Jon and tell him "Get low"
From the get-go, this pop can cause a panic at the disco
You get what just you get though, I get dough
But you ain't get that info then you ain't really knowing what you in for

Nate Robinson was absolutely decimated by Jake Paul on Saturday night during their boxing match that took place ahead of Mike Tyson's big comeback. Sports fans were hoping for the best from Robinson, noting that he is a natural athlete who can easily take down a YouTube star. In the end, this turned out not to be the case as Paul was simply a lot more prepared for the grueling nature of a boxing match.
Following the loss, Robinson was roasted on social media and there have been a plethora of memes floating around the internet. While many have been quick to put Robinson down, Floyd Mayweather is vowing to do no such thing. While taking to Instagram today, Floyd offered up some encouragement to the fighter.
"Nate, I’m proud of you and I will always stand behind all my brothers. I will never kick my brother when he’s down. It’s ok for people to voice their opinions on social media, but no black athletes or black entertainers, especially black NBA players should make a mockery out of you. We are supposed to all stand with each other through the good, bad and ugly. I’m here to uplift you and let you know we all love you and congratulate you for just making an effort."
Mayweather also noted that he wanted to train Robinson although the former NBA star ultimately declined. If Robinson ever wants to get back in the ring, perhaps Mayweather should be his very first phone call.
