If there's a trio that can deliver a certified banger, it's these three artists. Freddie Gibbs called on Big Sean and Hit-Boy for his latest single "4 Thangs," a track and accompanying visual that shows the world that the trio is holding it down on top as champions. Gibbs has been teasing basketball-themed images and video clips on social media for weeks in anticipation of the single's premiere, and now that it has arrived, fans certainly aren't disappointed.
Hit-Boy recently worked with both Nas and Benny The Butcher on their acclaimed albums, and it's said that he's in the studio with Ant Clemons. Of course, Big Sean is still celebrating his latest album Detroit 2 taking over the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts, and he just shared the BET Hip Hop Awards stage with Ty Dolla $ign and girlfriend Jhené Aiko during their performance of his track, "Body Language." Check out these three having a great time as top dawgs and stream "4 Thangs."
And the polices know that I'm sellin' it
I did the one and two with the heroin
And my n*gga was snitchin' me, tellin' it
I had to jump off a wall with the Mexicans
Gotta get me a brand new plug
I run out of dope and I'm out of my element

Another Lil Durk single can only mean that the Chicago rapper is inching closer to the release of his next project. Durk has been teasing his album The Voice for months, and when he recently thanked fans for sending him love for his birthday, he confirmed that the album was complete. We'll all have to wait just a bit longer for more information about when it's scheduled to hit streaming services, but we expect The Voice will come sooner than later.
Durkio's Friday (October 30) single "Stay Down" features friends 6LACK and Young Thug, and the release of the track follows last month's drop, "The Voice." Both songs were released on the heels of Lil Durk's standout feature on Drake's "Laugh Now, Cry Later," so fans are anticipating what he has in store. Stream "Stay Down" to listen to the melodic deliveries of these three artists and share your thoughts in the comments.
If you love me would you tell me that you ride for me?
Keep it gangsta, would you die for me?
Let you shop, you go get all designer, yeah
Double up the Rolls, let you ride over here, money ties over here
Mob ties over here, I can load you down with supplies over here

Houston Hottie Megan Thee Stallion is dominating the scene. The rapper has been embroiled in controversy connected to the July shooting incident involving Tory Lanez, but even so, Megan has been able to maintain her position at the top of the charts.

On Friday (October 30), Meg popped up on DJ Chose's track "Thick" that he originally released with Beatking.

Few sneakers would fall into the "must-cop" category but these ones right here... whew.
Coming right in time for Halloween, sneakerheads are officially able to secure a brand new pair of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High "Dark Mocha", which has been a coveted pair all year long. Once the official images started circulating on social media, the people spoke and labeled these one of the hottest colorways of the year and, considering they're a Jordan 1 High, you just know that the demand will be high.
As you likely know, StockX has become one of the premier marketplaces for the re-selling of all the hottest kicks. While there are certain pairs that can fetch a fortune on the stock market-like app, others, like these, are far more affordable than you may think.
Perfect for the fall, and even making for a decent winter shoe depending on where you live, the "Dark Mocha" joints will only be out on October 31 but you can already secure your pair early on StockX. Depending on your size, you'll be paying approximately $400 for these and, once they drop in Nike's stores, the price is expected to fluctuate. However, if you can't wait and you know that you'll need these in your collection, you'll want to act early.
Check out some official pictures for the Air Jordan 1 Retro High "Dark Mocha" below and head here to cop yourself this pair.

Wedding bells could be in the future for Nelly and girlfriend Shantel Jackson. The rapper and his longtime leading lady have been going strong since 2014, and according to Nelly, it might be time for the couple to jump the broom. He's been showing off his moves on Dancing With The Stars, and in a video package for the competition series, Nelly fawned over Shantel and spoke of his love for her.
"I would not want my life to not have Shantel in it," said Nelly. "We've been seeing each other for five or six years. Any time you can connect with somebody like that, it works out for the long run. She's sweet, beautiful, and the more we got to know each other, she's just as beautiful inside."
"We have so much in common," he added. "She grew up in the inner city, she knows what it’s like to go through certain things in life when you grow up in the inner city... She's very driven, very passionate about the things she does and she doesn't accept anything but wanting to be better. And that's what I love. That's exactly what I love."
The rapper was asked if an engagement was in the near future, but he played it coy with his answer. "We're working towards it," he said, adding "When we know, I'll tell you." Check out a few photos of the happy couple below.

Things have slightly subsided in Philadelphia following the police-involved shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. The mentally ill 27-year-old was wielding a knife when he was shot multiple times by Philadephia police officers in the street as his mother shouted for them not to hurt her son. Wallace's death has been a polarizing topic on social media as people have stated that the shooting was justified because Wallace was armed with a knife, while others don't believe that he posed a real threat to the two officers on the scene.
The family of Walter Wallace Jr. is speaking out about the tragic incident, and according to a report made by NBC Philadelphia, Wallace's brother called for an ambulance to come to the scene to "help with a mental health crisis, not for police intervention." Instead, police responded. Wallace's mother, Cathy Brant, told reporters that on one occasion, "they stood there and laughed at us."
"I don’t want my son to have died in vain like he wasn’t nothing, like he didn’t come from a good family,” said Walter Wallace Sr. Shaka Johnson, the family's attorney added, “When you come to a scene where somebody is in a mental crisis, and the only tool you have to deal with it is a gun ... where are the proper tools for the job?”
Walter Wallace Jr.'s wife is pregnant and scheduled to give birth this week. It's reported that he has nine children.

In an interview with Domenick Nati on The Domenick Nati Radio Show, Moniece Slaughter shed some light on her past involvement with Shaq, and why their relationship didn’t pan out. The pair dated briefly from 2011 to 2012, but their relationship was tainted by suspected infidelity on Shaq’s part. Slaughter said that when the swirling internet rumors prompted her to voice her concerns to Shaq in an attempt to work things out, it only aggravated him. She told Nati, “he broke it off with me because I was asking too many questions. He doesn’t want to be questioned. He does not like to be cornered. And I’m the type where I’m like, ‘I don’t give a f*ck who you are. If I’m concerned, I’m going to voice this concern, you’re going to answer it”
Slaughter, who has dated many celebrities, including Ray J and her baby daddy Lil Fizz, went on to confirm that the two are indeed still on good terms, with the former NBA player having most recently reached out this past May, to wish her a happy Mother’s Day.
Slaughter also noted that the two are better off as friends, and it’s all love between them. The same unfortunately can’t be said for her explosive relationship with the father of her child, Lil Fizz, which has made headlines several times recently. Over the past several months, Slaughter has claimed Fizz isn’t allowed around Omarion and Apryl Jones’ kids, threatened to sue him for a 2015 music video, and broken up and gotten back together about a dozen times.
Maury Phillips/Getty ImagesAs of right now, it appears the two are off-again. Watch Slaughter reminisce on her past relationships and all that she has learned from them in her IG Live interview with Nati below.

For months, Jaguar Wright has been an unstoppable force. The longtime singer has an established career in the music industry and has worked with some of our favorite R&B and Hip Hop artists, however, she's recently kicked up dust with scorching accusations against her collaborators. Aside from the comments she's made about The Roots, Erykah Badu, Summer Walker, Diddy, Tevin Campbell, Alicia Keys, and others, Wright said in an interview that she was allegedly sexually assaulted by Common years ago.
Common has ignored Jaguar's repeated verbal prodding until today (October 29) when he addressed the rumors while speaking with Philadelphia's Rise and Grind Morning Show. “God bless, Jaguar. I really don’t have any negative thoughts towards her,” Common said. “I was for surely disappointed and hurt when she said what she said about me because it wasn’t true. I know people that have experienced sexual assault and that’s not anything to just say if it’s not true. But I also understand that she may be going through some things that I don’t understand."
"In all truth, I went through different emotions. I’m like, oh man, why is she saying this? This is not true. How’s this gon’ affect me?” Still, Common couldn't help but be concerned for Jaguar and what she may be dealing with for her to go after so many industry professionals so quickly. Listen to the clip of his radio interview below.

Kim Kardashian turned 40 years old on October 21st and over the past week, she was able to spend time with her family on a private island. While this trip ultimately got the meme treatment due to a tone-deaf post on social media, there is no denying that the getaway must have been nice for everyone considering how the pandemic has affected everyone's mental health for the worse.
Kim's husband, the always interesting Kanye West, has been busy over the past week as he did a massive interview with Joe Rogan all while continuing his Presidential campaign efforts. In between all of this, he was able to arrange the birthday present of a lifetime for Kim. As you can see in the Instagram post below, Kanye got Kim a hologram of her father, Robert Kardashian, who passed away in 2003. In the clip, the hologram directly addresses Kim, telling her how proud he is of all of her efforts, especially when it comes to being a lawyer.
View this post on InstagramFor my birthday, Kanye got me the most thoughtful gift of a lifetime. A special surprise from heaven. A hologram of my dad. ??? It is so lifelike and we watched it over and over, filled with lots so tears and emotion. I can’t even describe what this meant to me and my sisters, my brother, my mom and closest friends to experience together. Thank you so much Kanye for this memory that will last a lifetime ?

"For my birthday, Kanye got me the most thoughtful gift of a lifetime. A special surprise from heaven. A hologram of my dad," Kim said. "It is so lifelike and we watched it over and over, filled with lots so tears and emotion. I can’t even describe what this meant to me and my sisters, my brother, my mom and closest friends to experience together. Thank you so much Kanye for this memory that will last a lifetime."
This is quite possibly one of the most elaborate gifts we have ever seen, especially given just how lifelike it is. Kim has stated numerous times how much her father meant to her, and we're sure this is a gift she will be thinking about and replaying, for a very long time.
