If you're out and about and just happen to be jonesing for some fresh lemonade and a pair of Yeezys, then Kanye and Kim Kardashian West have you covered. Today, Kim announced on Twitter that Ye and Adidas have linked up to create Yeezy lemonade stands, a charitable venture. "Kanye and Adidas partnered with families across America to create homemade pop-up YEEZY Lemonade Stands stocked with limited pairs of the unreleased YEEZY Boost 700 V2 'Geode,'" Kim wrote.
"In the continued spirit of bringing people & families together, the brand has selected unexpected locations for the stands to connect w communities throughout the country," she continued. "Stand Locations: Indianapolis, IN; Missouri, TX; Waterloo, IA; Minneapolis, MN; Alton, IL; West Chester, OH; Belle Fourche, SD; Cedar Rapids, IA."
The Yeezy kick will set you back $300, and all proceeds made through the pop-up stands will be donated to NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The lemonade stands are up and running, and it's even being reported that the famous couple will have a stand of their own in their neighborhood. Hopefully, security is somewhere around to make sure those Yeezy's get paid for.

The Michael Jackson boycott is in full force these days following HBO's Leaving Neverland docuseries which explores Wade Robson and James Safechuck's allegations of child molestation at the hands of Michael Jackson. The docuseries prompted The Simpsons to remove the late singer's episode from syndication and the series entirely while Drake removed his posthumous collab with the iconic singer from his tour set. In Jordan Peele's latest film, Us, the director made reference to Michael Jackson which seemed to upset a few people. However, he explained that there was a symbolic meaning behind it.
Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesSpeaking to Variety at the premiere of Us, Jordan Peele explained one pop culture reference that caught everyone's attention. In the opening sequence, Lupita Nyong'o's character is a little girl when her dad wins her a "Thriller" t-shirt at an amusement park. She puts on the shirt before walking into a house of mirrors.
The reference of Michael Jackson didn't cause any sort of issues between the studio and director, according to Peele himself. “No, we start in the eighties and it’s an image of well documented duality and the film is about duality,” Peele said. He added that the reference is, “a tone-setter, and I think it sets a chilling tone, but one of much duality.”
Jordan Peele's Us serves as his directorial follow-up to 2017's critically acclaimed, Get Out.

Skinnyfromthe9 is probably more well known for the incidents he's involved in more so than the music he releases. Ever since he began to gain popularity, his name has been in headlines but not necessarily for the right reasons. Most recently, Adam22 of No Jumper recently shared a video of the rapper getting jumped in the middle of a restaurant.
Skinnyfromthe9 got into an altercation at Hibachi's earlier today with the footage from the fight posted to Adam22's Twitter page. The 14-second clip shows the rapper and another man wrestling before the attacker threw the rapper against a wall. The rapper has since issued a statement regarding the attack.
"The dude that hit me is a straight bitch. He came up to me while I was eating at a restaurant by myself with a girl and was like, 'Yo, I know you eatin' right now, but can I take a picture?' I got up, put my arm around him like we was gonna take a picture —like we was posin'— and the dude snuck me," he said. "And then we started wrestlin', and that's what happened. My face is fine. I still fuck bitches. I still got all my jewelry - the dumbass didn't even get my jewelry. He tried."
He continued to throw shots at Adam22 for posting the video and said the guy who attacked him didn't want to squabble up one-on-one.
"Dumbass nigga. He ran outside like a bitch," he added. "He would not fight me one on one. I would beat your ass, Adam, you a whole rat. Shut the fuck up. Skinny Gang. Where I'm from, when you wanna fight somebody, you go up to them and niggas square up. Niggas throw they sh*t up and fight it out. Not no bitch shit, where you go and sneak niggas. That's corny."
Peep his response below.

It looks like there may have been a feature missing from Nav's latest project but the rapper assured fans that it will arrive. Earlier today, the rapper hopped on Twitch with Ninja for a "Fortnite" session while they discussed the rapper's latest project, Bad Habits. The "first brown boy who got it poppin'" revealed that he and Future have some heat on the way.
Jon Kopaloff/Getty ImagesNav and Future are gearing up to drop some new heat in the future, the Toronto rapper confirmed during a live stream. "So, yeah, that song is gonna be with Future... Yeah, Nav featuring Future coming up, very soon," he told Ninja. "It's kind of like 'what's next, now?'" He added.
Over the years, Future's formed a strong bond with the XO crowd, collaborating with The Weeknd on two different occasions. Future also worked with Belly in the past on the song, "Frozen Water."
Aside from the Future collab, Nav shared some unfortunate news ahead of the release of his latest project. The rapper claimed that Don Cannon and DJ Drama weren't going to give him or the XO team clearance on Lil Uzi Vert's verse on "Habits."
"I know y’all wanted habits on the album," NAV wrote. "I had an open verse for the longest and Uzi blessed us one. Unfortunately DJ Drama and Don Cannon won’t clear his verse legally," he added.
Hopefully, we get that Uzi/Nav collab in the future but atleast we know that Nav got something on the way with The WZRD rapper.

Saba and the rest of the Pivot Gang must have had some pretty bad experiences with randoms in the studio because they made an entire song to lay down some quick ground rules if ever you find yourself in their Chicago space. The rules are pretty simple. If you want to keep chilling with the Pivot Gang, all you have to do is shut your mouth, don't call "next" on NBA2K, don't smoke bad weed, and stay seated. With an album reportedly in the works according to The Fader, this is just the latest single from the collective.
Vocals are laid down by Saba, MfnMelo and Frsh Waters with the trio explaining what makes good studio etiquette. They previously released "Blood" and "Jason Statham, Pt. 2," choosing today as the best time to unveil their latest creation. Are you here for this?
Don't stand out, sit down, shut up
Oh you smoke? Roll up, don't stand out
Don't call next on 2K, you not next
Don't pop up, be lowkey 'til we say you can speak
Don't talk loud 'til we laugh
Oh you rap? Don't rap for us, don't pass us no square smoke
Don't stare bro, Snapchat or IG
High key, be lowkey, don't come with your posse
Be dolo or plus one if we- look, you get it right?

As a Nike and Jordan Brand collaborator, Drake is the owner of several exclusive Air Jordan PEs, ranging from a pack of unreleased "Snakeskin" Air Jordan 11s to a rare "Tokyo" Air Jordan 5, and likely many others that he hasn't shared yet.
Among the kicks stashed in Drake's vault is an exclusive "Charles Oakley" Air Jordan 8 PE, which he first showed off back in 2017. As it turns out, there may be other pairs of the Oak 8s in existence, because instagram user @Qiasomar recently provided new images of the kicks.

The Air Jordan 8s come equipped with a Toronto Raptors color scheme, highlighted by Oakley's #34 on the crossing straps and "OAK" on the ankle collar, as well as the gold OVO owl on the heel. The kicks won't ever release, but we can still admire them from afar.
Scroll down for some additional images, as well as the original video that Drake posted a few years back.
