Your Stay-At-Home Work Outs Playlist

   



Although gyms everywhere are closed for the foreseeable future, we don't need to use that as an excuse to let our fitness and health goals fall by the wayside. Now's probably an even more important time than ever before to get your health and fitness in check, actually. Not only that, but influencers and health brands, as well as local gyms, are making it easy for you to do that by sharing at-home work out routines or else putting on group Instagram Live fitness classes for you to follow along in the comfort of your living room. That all being said, we decided we needed to give you a new edition of the Fit or Die gym workout-from-home playlist. 
This week's playlist starts off with Fivio Foreign’s (who is officially Coronavirus-free) new drop, “Wetty”. The energy he brings, every time, is perfect for working out, including “Big Drip (Remix)” featuring Quavo and Lil Baby, “2 Cars” with Mr. Swipey, and to end the playlist “Pop Out.”
Lil Baby fits quite a few tracks in as well with “Solid,” “Gang Signs,” “Never Recover” featuring Gunna and Drake, “Forever” with Lil Wayne. He is also featured on Rich the Kid’s “Stuck Together,” 42 Dugg’s “Not A Rapper” with Yo Gotti.
Joyner Lucas’ tribute to Will Smith called “Will” is fun, positive and also fits perfectly into the playlist. Let us know what songs you've been vibing to for your at-home work outs in the comment section.

Don Toliver is one of the most exciting new artists right now. His official debut album Heaven Or Hell has earned rave reviews and as the Houston native continues to gain traction as an artist, he is enjoying the most successful stretch of his career. Preparing to head out on tour with The Weeknd (if the summer ever arrives...), Don Toliver is getting the wheels ready to go but, this year, he's been working like crazy on just getting his name out there. A lot of hip-hop heads finally took notice when the Cactus Jack Records signee popped up as a featured guest on Eminem's surprise album Music To Be Murdered By.
Speaking to Ebro Darden and Apple Music about how that feature came together, Don Toliver explained how he even ended up on Em's radar.

"That's one for the OGs," says Don Toliver about the D.A. Doman produced track "No Regrets" with Marshall Mathers. "I was in the Cactus Jack studio [when I got the call] and I was recording. I think Em was already on tip with what I had going on but who really I think plugged the spot was D.A. Doman. No cap."
Don didn't wait to record his chorus for the song. He says that he hopped in the booth right away and had it finished within the hour, ready to be released the next day. 
Watch the interview with Ebro Darden below.

CDG PLAY x Converse Chuck 70 Release Date



Comme Des Garcons' Play collection is known for the red heart with eyes. This logo has become an iconic piece of streetwear history and continues to find its way onto various clothes and collaborations. Perhaps the most popular CDG Play pieces are the sneaker collabs with Converse. The Converse Chuck 70 Low and High models have all received a heavy dose of the Play logo over the years and with the summer quickly approaching, both Converse and CDG are coming through with their most colorful collab yet.
In the images below, you can see that the high and low top models will all have neon green, pink, and blue colorways with the CDG heart placed on the side. The placements of the branding are very similar to that of the white and black models except for this time we are getting a much-needed injection of color.
If you are looking for something to spruce up your summer outfits, these are the perfect way to go. They will be dropping at CDG retailers as of April 2nd for $150 USD each. Let us know in the comments below how you're feeling about them.

Numerous hip-hop fans have been reflecting on the life of Nipsey Hussle as today is the one year anniversary of his tragic murder. He was shot and killed outside of his store in California and the hip-hop community is still looking for answers as to why it happened. Since his passing, numerous fans have created tributes in Hussle's honor and today, there has been an outpour of support. 
While those in the hip-hop community have been paying their respects, there are plenty of those in the sports world who have done the same thing. Kyrie Irving recently took to social media where he stated "I didn't know you personally Nip, but just know you inspired me beyond measure. Thank you." Russell Westbrook was one of the athletes who knew Nipsey and shared a message of his own on Twitter.

Some of the other athletes who came through with messages of support are none other than Dez Bryant, DeSean Jackson, and Victor Oladipo. Isaiah Thomas had a special connection with Nipsey and shared a note on Twitter stating "We love you Hussle man." 
Michael Thomas of the NFL had a similar message and so did Matt Barnes who shared a hyper-realistic Nipsey tattoo. These messages just go to show how well-respected Nipsey was in the world. His influence transcended music and into other walks of life.

Doja Cat Gets Her First-Ever Top 10 Hit

   



Several years ago, Doja Cat was viewed as a meme in the hip-hop community. "Mooo!" may have been funny, but it didn't get her off on the right foot if she wanted to be taken seriously. After spending some time on her branding and her sophomore studio album, the Los Angeles native has re-established herself as a force to be reckoned with, cementing her as one of the most popular female rappers in the world and proving to her naysayers that she can do more than just look pretty in a cow costume.

Rising five spots on this week's Billboard Hot 100 tally, Doja Cat has officially earned her first-ever Top Ten single with "Say So." The song has been dominating on TikTok, and its popularity transcended social media to become a nationwide hit. In addition to its new position on the chart, it has also become the most-streamed song by a female artist this year according to Chart Data.
This is a big week for Doja Cat, who has also officially clocked in her first billion streams on Spotify, surpassing 500 million total streams on her new album Hot Pink. 

Congratulations to Doja Cat, who has worked very hard to get to this stage of her career.

Jay-Z is a legend of hip-hop and will most likely go down as the greatest to ever do it. This has been well-documented by much more qualified people than myself, although sometimes, it bears repeating. Back in 2002, Hov released the sequel to The Blueprint with the appropriate titled The Blueprint 2. As a means to commemorate the release of the album, Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella records teamed up with Nike for an Air Force 1 Low that encapsulates the project.
Thanks to Sole Collector, we now have some detailed images of one of the samples that was produced. As you can see, the entire shoe was made with a white leather upper while a Roc-A-Fella logo is found on the tongue and near the back heel. The outsole is an olive green while the insole has The Blueprint 2 branding.

While we're sure members of Roc-A-Fella and Jay-Z himself have these shoes in their stash, it's safe to say that us mere mortals will never get our hands on these. They will remain samples that we can come back to every once in a while to fawn over and think of what could have been. Regardless, these are a dope piece of history and every sneaker collector/hip-hop heads dream.
Let us know in the comments below what you would do with these if they ever came into your possession.

R. Kelly Prosecutors Are Tired Of His Complaints Over Prison Conditions



R. Kelly is doing everything in his power to get out of jail. In wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, he's continued to demand freedom on claims that the prison conditions aren't up to par to prevent the spreading of COVID-19. Unfortunately for him, prosecutors aren't budging on their stance and they're actually sick and tired of his complaints, according to new docs.

Antonio Perez - Pool via Getty ImagesThe Blast reports the prosecutors in R. Kelly's case are asking the judge to deny his most recent plea to be released on bond. As the singer remains incarcerated inside of Chicago's MCC, he's tried to pick at every possible flaw imaginable to get out of prison. “If released, there is a risk that the defendant will flee and that the defendant will obstruct, attempt to obstruct, threaten, intimidate or attempt to threaten or intimidate one or more prospective witnesses," the prosecutors wrote in documents.
Even though he's made a case that he's susceptible to catching COVID-19 inside of the prison, prosecutors added that his recent surgery went on without a hitch. “[R. Kelly] had his post-surgery follow-up appointment and has been discharged from the doctor’s care.” They added that he has access to cleaning products and that he “may purchase additional soap from the commissary if he so chooses.”
Looks like the prosecutors aren't budging on Kelly's plea for his release.

NBA fans have been looking for any kind of sports content they can get their hands on and now, the league is set to deliver with a brand new NBA 2K tournament that will air on Friday on ESPN. This tournament will reportedly go on for ten days and is being called "Players-Only" due to the fact that only NBA talent can participate. In fact, some of the league's biggest names will be in the tourney.
The bracket has already been made and has been split up according to who has the highest ranking in NBA 2K. For instance, Kevin Durant has an overall of 96 which means he is the first seed. He will go up against the 16th seeded Derrick Jones Jr. Some of the other big names in the tournament are Trae Young, DeMarcus Cousins, Donovan Mitchell, and Devin Booker. You can see the entire bracket, below.

This will surely be an entertaining tournament and we can't wait to see if the players use their teams in real life. If so, some players will certainly be at an unfair advantage, especially Durant who would get to play as himself and Kyrie Irving. Not to mention, Montrezl Harrell and Patrick Beverley would get to use Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, and Lou Williams.
Let us know in the comments below who you think will end up winning the tournament.

Offset Releases Trailer For His New Show

   

Offset Releases Trailer For His New Show



We could all use some extra quarantine material to keep us entertained for the next month -- or however long this will last. Thankfully, there's an abundance of content waiting for us to press play and escape from the perils of our new isolated lives.
Migos rapper Offset is at the helm of a new show called Skrrt With Offset, which he will be executive producing with Quibi, and the service has just released a new trailer for the program.

Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesOffset is the main character in a reality show where he will be racing luxury cars with a few other superstars in the hip-hop community. The trailer features appearances from his bandmate Quavo, his wife Cardi B, and his friends Dapper Dan, Chance the Rapper, T-Pain, and more. In addition, he will also be working with the likes of Jay Leno on the show.
The 28-year-old Atlanta native recently made his acting debut on NCIS, which flows nicely into his foray to reality television. It will likely be some time before we ever see Offset or Cardi B on another episode of Love & Hip Hop so this is probably the closest we'll get to the couple through the small screen. 
Skrrt With Offset premieres on Quibi on April 6. Will you be tuning in?

Kevin Durant signed with the Brooklyn Nets in 2019 and while he might not get to play this season, there is no denying he will be a huge help to that team once he is back on the court. Durant barely got to play in the Nike KD 12 although that didn't stop Nike from releasing a plethora of new colorways throughout 2019 and the early portions of 2020. Now, the NBA is on pause and sneaker brands are trying to tide the fans over with some teasers. Over the past couple of weeks, we have seen what the Nike KD 13 will look like and as you would imagine, new colorways are being shown off.
The latest offering to get a teaser comes courtesy of the Instagram account, @kix.r_us. This colorway is meant to be an homage to the Brooklyn Nets although with a bit of a twist. As you can see, the midsole of the shoe is filled with colorful camo while the upper is white and black.

A release date has yet to be set for this model so stay tuned for updates as we will be sure to give you the latest information. In the meantime, let us know if you plan on rocking these out on the court.
