DJ Jazzy Jeff is in just as much awe as everyone else, taking in the sprawling metropolis laid out before the W Hotel Taipei. "This is amazing," he says from the immaculate 10th-floor pool deck, enamored by not only the sweeping city views, but also the manmade green oasis decorated with ivy walls, spindly trees and peaceful, picturesque nooks. As he imagines what the space would look like if he were here in June and not January, it's hard not to imagine his and Will Smith's anthemic (and Grammy award-winning) 1991 hit, "Summertime," queued up to soundtrack the hypothetical party. But as Jeff gawks at the sights, the real on-site marvel-and part of the reason scores of worldwide DJs have flocked to Taiwan's buzzy capital-is him.
The man born Jeffrey Allen Townes has spent the better part of his week in Taipei bonding with not only his Vinyl Destination tour bredren Rhymefest and Dayne Jordan, who came along for the trip, but also with what feels like a brotherhood (and sisterhood!) of DJs striving to keep the culture alive. Prior to his rooftop break, Jeff sat in front of a packed room of Red Bull Music 3Style attendees leaning forward in their seats, listening to him backtrack his journey from being a West Philadelphia "street DJ" to rocking booths and stages all around the world.
The animated tone made familiar by his character's witty quips on The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air hasn't changed too much. He still sounds borderline cartoonish when he cracks well-timed jokes or cuts the air with cuss words. Only now, that signature voice belongs to a more relaxed, less wiry, and salt-and-pepper haired Jeff. "She's in the kitchen cooking. She had to endure me working out stuff without her saying, 'This sh*t is getting on my nerves, can you turn that down?'" he said, drifting down memory lane. Jeff, now 54, still remembers the days of his mother tolerating his many teenaged practice sessions.

Offset's solo debut album drops tonight.
Offset will finally be releasing his long-awaited debut solo album tonight. It's been a long time coming. After the summer, QC and Migos began rolling out the solo projects for the ATL trio. Quavo came first with Quavo Huncho before Takeoffgot his chance to shine with The Last Rocket. Unfortunately, while many expected Offset's album to drop in December, it never happened, nor did he offer another release date. For the past few months, we've been left in the dark wondering when he would be releasing it. Tonight, he'll finally unleash Father Of 4 and now, he reveals both the cover art and tracklist.
Offset's Father Of 4 cover art features the rapper on a throne in front of wall covered in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics while his four children are around him. His oldest son stands next to the throne while Offset and Cardi B's daughter, Kulture, sits on her fathers lap. Meanwhile, the middle child sits at Offset's feet.

It was always inevitable that the children of Kylie Jenner, plus Kim and Khloe Kardashian, would become a part of the family empire.
According to TMZ, the three aforementioned sisters have filed documents to trademark the names of their children, including Saint, North, and Chicago West, as well as True Thompson and Stormi Webster. The documents obtained by TMZ say that the purpose of this was to put the names of the kids on products that include a clothing line, skincare products, and toys (among other things).

D-Generation X is heading to the WWE Hall of Fame, Tim Fiorvanti of ESPN.com confirmed Monday.
"Both key versions of DX will be recognized as a collective group of six, including Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Chyna, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and X-Pac," noted Fiorvanti, who provided a comment from Triple H.
"I think it's the most meaningful for us all to go in together and to be recognized together," Paul "Triple H" Levesque told ESPN. "Because I think both groups were [just] as impactful."
An ad promoting DX's Hall of Fame induction leaked Sunday despite there being no announcement from WWE at the time.
Michaels will become the second two-time WWE Hall of Famer, joining Ric Flair.
The DX stable debuted in 1997 with Triple H, Michaels, Rick Rude and Chyna. Rude exited the faction when he returned to WCW, but DX quickly ascended to the top of WWE's roster due to its not-so-PG antics and antagonizing of authority.
Triple H also spoke about Chyna's importance and impact in professional wrestling, per Fiorvanti: "It was completely different. No one had ever had a female [enforcer] before, especially one like that. It just worked out. The timing was right."
Michaels was later kicked out of the faction following his loss to Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania XIV, with Triple H assuming control (as Michaels was about to retire for several years from wrestling due to chronic back injuries).
