Tory Lanez is starting to feel like the guy who shit-talks during a PS4 session, to the point where controllers get lobbed. Still, that hasn't stopped the Canadian from engaging in a post-Joyner Lucas beef "victory tour" of sorts, which included a recent stop on Everyday Struggle. During the conversation, Lanez was his usual confident self, doubling down on his position as the feud's winner.
The idea was given further fuel by his new pal Akademiks, sporting a new hairline of Tory's own design. Lanez proceeded to raise a glass and toast to "the Joyner Kid," doling out an L to the Grammy-nominated rapper; though Ak happily acquiesced in raising his cup, it should be noted that Wayno and Nadeska did not participate. In any case, Joyner got wind of the spectacle, and had a few words for Tory.
"I think the doctors put something inside his head when he got his new hairline replacement," wrote Joyner, via IG. While the clapback is somewhat harmless, we can only hope that Tory's nonstop provoking is akin to bear-poking. Should Joyner decide to drop another track, however, he better make sure that his A-Game is brought, and nothing less. Nobody wants the PS4 shit-talker to reign supreme forever. The karma police'll getcha.

"They tried to get rid of me, but from ocean to ocean, they gonna have to deal with me," begins Pitbull's new cover of the iconic (and most overplayed of all time) "Africa" by Toto. Whatever you may think of the original song, it's here, it's not going away and Pitbull's version actually does some sort of justice to the original which already isn't exactly the pinnacle of good taste. Not only has he turned it into pure 2018-pop candy, he has beat the internet at its own game. As Buzzfeed put it's "a meme covering a meme:"
As a YouTube commenter put it, "I didn't know a track could SMELL like 2008." The song was made for official soundtrack of the forthcoming Aquaman movie starring Jason Momoa. Maybe the biggest thing this shows us the difference between DC and Marvel. The Black Panther soundtrack was a whole Kendrick Lamar album, while Aquaman's has Pitbull covering Toto's "Africa."
This is not uncharted territory. Earlier this year Weezer covered the song after a 14-year-old kid from Cleveland started a Twitter account called @weezerafrica in an effort to get the band to do a version:"@RiversCuomo it's about time you bless the rains down in Africa." They did, and they got Weird Al for the music video. Who will do the next "Africa" cover?

While he was alive, XXXTentacion spoke often about death. Much of his music centred on the inevitability of his demise as he seemingly predicted he would be gone soon. We've heard a good chunk of his music and while some of it sounds unfinished, it's still nice to hear what he was working on prior to his murder. He clearly had a lot of music in the vault because now, he's popping up for a few posthumous features. X was a special guest on the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse soundtrack as he guested on a song by Lil Wayne and Ty Dolla $ign. His fans have started to point out how eerie some of his lyrics are in "Scared of the Dark," especially considering it was released after his death.
In the song, XXXTentacion raps, "If only you count the tears I've cried/ A million times, I swear I've died." A few of his verses have referred to death but this particular reference is turning heads. Lil Wayne also speaks about death as he notes that he's not afraid of his demise.
According to Genius, X's vocals were repurposed from his scrapped feature on Bhad Bhabie's "Trust Me." Another portion of his verse is from an unreleased song that is yet to be identified. What do you think of the track?

Yesterday, Kanye West went off on Drake after the artist asked a member of his team if he could clear a sample. It sparked one of the most furious Twitter rants we've seen all year from Kanye as he demanded an apology, spoke about threats made against his family, the Pusha-T brawl in Toronto, and more. Later that night, he said that Drake called him and made threats over the phone, adding even more drama to their feud. One person that wasn't feeling the one-sided argument was Ariana Grande as she kindly requested that Kanye take a break so that she can push her new single without it getting lost in the shuffle.
Grande was seemingly unhappy about how she wasn't the first thing on people's minds last night as Drake and Kanye's beef dominated social media until the late hours of the day. She promoted her own single and Miley Cyrus' new release as she tweeted, "guys, i know there are grown men arguing online rn but miley and i dropping our beautiful, new songs tonight so if y'all could please jus behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that'd be so sick thank u."
An Ariana Grande single is going to get attention regardless of whether "two grown men" are arguing online. However, she still decided to step in and call a recess on the beef.

After weeks of promotion, which included hearing the songs like “No Budget” & “Do Right (Green Day),” Kid Ink decided to come through today and share his new EP called Missed Calls, featuring Lil Wayne, Rich The Kid, Saweetie, Valee and more. Looking to highlight one of the standout tracks, here goes arguably the biggest feature off the EP with Lil Wayne called “YUSO” featuring Saweetie.
Going in over production from D.A. Doman (“Taste” & “ZeZe”), Ink raps about being a “nasty nigga” while handling the chorus. Weezy comes in for the second verse, spitting some raunchy lyrics about the same thing, being a nasty guy. “I’m a nasty fuck, I like a plastic slut, They always glad to fuck, I'm always last enough/ I let her ride my face, just like a passenger, I let her drink my kids, come lick these bastards up,” he spits.
Take a listen to the anticipated collab and let us know what you think. Missed Calls available on iTunes.
Let her hit my drink, let her pop two illies
Let her say my name, she say "You got too many"
I like to pull her hair, she like to pull mine too
I hit it raw so when you suck, it taste just like you

Gucci Mane and his wife, Keyshia Ka'oir, have dabbled in the world of reality TV, showcasing their love to the masses. It's not uncommon to find the couple on social media swooning over each other as Keyshia loves to get a little risqué in her comments. The hip-hop power couple is clearly in love and Gucci loves to show her off to the world any chance he gets. During a recent photo shoot, Ka'oir decided to give her fans some quality content by covering herself with a bucket of red glitter and rolling around on the floor. Here's the catch, though: she was naked throughout.
Keyshia pulled up on Instagram to show off her rocking body to her millions of fans today. The entertainer posted a video of herself going nude as the only clothing she's wearing is the red glitter that covers her skin. For obvious reasons, we can't post the clip here but you're able to view it on Keyshia's page here.
In the last week, much of the content she's posted has had to do with her husband's new album, which released a week ago. While we're sure Gucci Mane enjoys the promotion she's given him, he's probably pretty pleased about this too.

Ariana Grande just released a new single last night called “Imagine,” and fans are already finding clues in it that could relate to Mac Miller. In fact, many people on Twitter believe the song is about Mac Miller.
As pointed out by Twittersphere and the Ariana stans, Mac actually had the word “Imagine” tattooed on his bicep, giving us the first strong hint off the rip. Second, prior to the song coming out, Ariana admitted the track was about "denial" and "pretending it never ended”. Back in November, she tweeted the song was about "a simple, beautiful love that is now (and forever) unattainable,” providing us with more evidence that it could indeed be about Mac.
Another big hint is her line about her love for take out food. Ariana sings, “staying up all night, order me pad Thai”. Fans believe the verse mirrors Mac's lyric on his song "Cinderella," which he raps: "And when you hungry, I can chef you up a stir fry.”
Lastly, Ariana also sings about her object of affection not being who she imagined herself being with at first: "Feels like forever baby, I never thought that it would be you.” That line echoes a line from Mac’s “Cinderella,” which read: "You used to tell me all the time I ain't your type. Now you always wanna spend the night."
Check out fans’ theories of Ariana’s new song (below) and let us know what you think. This about Mac or nah?

The Joakim Noah era in New York was a complete and utter failure. There are a number of reasons why things didn't work out, but the 33-year old center says part of the problem was he was just "too lit" to play in NYC at his age.
During an interview on the Chris Vernon Show in Memphis, Noah says, “I can look back on it and say I thought I was ready for New York City, and I wasn’t. It’s something I have to live with."
“I remember after the first game, I probably had, like, 60 people at my house. I’m lit. I’m too lit to play in New York City. Memphis is perfect for me . . . We were lit in Chicago, but I was young. You recover faster, you know?”
Noah added, "When I got kicked off the team, it was New York Fashion Week. I was getting paid a lot of money and I had no direction. I really had to make a decision of how I wanted to live my life. If I kept going in the direction I was going in and stayed in New York, then I probably wouldn't be here right now."
The Knicks had signed Noah to a monster four-year deal worth $72 million in July 2016 but things didn't go as planned, at all. The former Defensive Player of the Year appeared in just 46 games for the Knicks in the 2016-17 season and was later suspended by the NBA for 20 games for taking a banned substance.
Noah appeared in just seven games during the 2017-18 season and left the Knicks in February following a heated exchange with then head coach Jeff Hornacek. New York desperately tried to trade Noah but never came close to striking a deal and ultimately decided to waive and stretch the final season of his contract, therefore freeing up more than $10 million in cap space for the Knicks in the summer in 2019, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.
During his 53-game tenure with the Knicks, Noah averaged just 4.6 points and 7.9 rebounds per night.

In case you missed it, PornHub just released their year in review for 2018 and it is absolutely exhaustive. The site was visited 33.5 billion times (as they point, the equivalent of the populations of Poland, Australia and Canada visited the site very day), which means PornHub may be uniquely situated to tally some worldwide numbers that no one else can. Not to mention that it's just interesting to see what people really watch in the heat of the (alone) moment and the comfort of their homes, as most people probably aren't broadcasting this kind of information (with some notable exceptions).
Pornhub begins their list with what they call the "searches that defined 2018," a list that seems about right. The first place on the list is Stormy Daniels, who was bound to be there as a porn star and also one of the biggest stories in American politics. But then it gets more interesting. The second search is Fortnite, which is a little surprising considering it's a video game but also only natural considering the popularity of the game. As the people at Pornhub put it:
Fantasy plays a big role in pornography (and indeed in human sexuality), so it’s only natural that people will desire seeing sexual scenarios involving the game characters they emotionally connect with. In April when Fortnite’s servers crashed, searches for Fortnite increased by as much as 60% over a 24 hour period.
The rest of the list is, in order: 4k, Romantic, Trans, Outdoor, Tattoos, Tinder, Bowsette and Threesome. The Director of Pornhub's Sexual Wellness Centre describes how this list is not just about watching sex: “searches like these serve as an indication that people use this site to not only satisfy sexual urges but also to get a different angle on something they are already interested in. To see a famous character or hot topic in a sexual context.”

Method Man has been quiet of late, though don't assume inactivity was the cause. The legendary Wu-Tang rapper was putting in work, touring the world and crafting The Meth Lab 2: Lithium, alongside creative partner Hanz On. The second season of his Staten Island-centric series dropped at midnight, and many have been quick to praise Meth's razor-focused bars, which have yet to dull after over twenty-five years in the game. The extent of his effortless skill is evident on "Episode 2: Eastside," which finds Snoop Dogg and newcomer iNTell lining up for the occasion.
It's not the first time Meth and Snoop have joined forces, having appeared together on Tical 0 banger "We Some Dogs." Here, they move with a notable sense of authority, with Meth in particular turning in a scene-stealing performance. "Need to be Proactive, these rap kids need to know the meanin' of what rap is before they say they rappers," spits Meth. "I can say I mastered everything they talkin' 'bout, and after it's all said and done, you'll see my jersey in the rafters." Snoop makes sure to honor his fellow veteran's presence, as the Doggfather keeps the flow slick like only he can.
Peep The Meth Lab 2: Lithium now, and pay respect to one of the best to ever do it.
Need to be Proactive
These rap kids need to know the meanin' of what rap is before they say they rappers
I can say I mastered everything they talkin' 'bout
And after it's all said and done, you'll see my jersey in the rafters
- Method Man
