The self-proclaimed visionary behind Tina Snow's most creative and insane nail designs, the manicurist has also previously done nails for celebrities like Summer Walker, Normani, Jhene Aiko, Cardi B, and Rosalia. Michelle has been doing nails since she was six years old, thanks to the exposure provided by her family's nail salon, and is the one responsible for the almost daily sets that Megan has been posting lately.&nbsp; Image via HNHH.&nbsp;<a href="https://www.instagram.com/timstype/" target="_blank">Photo by @TimStype.</a>We've gathered a list of Megan's best sets below. Good News SetThis set was designed for Megan's 2020&nbsp;Good News&nbsp;album, and is worn by Megan on the album's cover art. The intricate design includes Megan's name etched out in bold, mimicking a headline, along with other impossibly small details that perfectly capture a copy of a print paper.&nbsp; Rolling Loud SetThe manicurist crafted this neon, floral masterpiece for the rapper's 2021 Rolling Loud Miami festival appearance, featuring neon flowers that complimented Megan's bright orange fishnet fit. The singer coupled the nails with a bedazzled bra top, glittery orange eye makeup, and gold-orange rings.&nbsp; <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://ssl.ulximg.com/public/userfiles/2021/10/15/GettyImages-1330938605.jpg" title="" /></div> Megan performing at RL Miami 2021 -&nbsp;Rich Fury/Getty ImagesJade Jewelry SetMichelle initially tried out this set on herself, posting the demo pictures on her Instagram. The two teamed up for a picture of their nails, showing off the unique clear, geometric jade-green vision, decked out with gold jewelry decals and finished off with white tips. &nbsp; Jojo's Bizarre Adventure SetMegan is widely known for&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/megan-thee-stallion-rates-anime-dating-apps-and-more-for-over-under-news.107834.html" target="_blank">her anime obsession</a>&nbsp;and she has always been vocal on her Instagram about the latest shows she's watching. She even cosplayed as Todoroki from My Hero Academia for her&nbsp;Paper Magazine&nbsp;cover. This set shows off one of her favorite anime,&nbsp;Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, with the face of a different character from the show embedded on each finger. In an interview with&nbsp;Vogue, Michelle revealed how Megan and she formed a bond over their mutual love for anime, and how the singer put her onto the show, especially its Stardust Crusaders arc.&nbsp; Hello Kitty SetThis Hello Kitty-inspired set flexes Coca's versatility,&nbsp;as she takes a spin on the children's cartoon show by adding in designer elements, such as the Chanel logo. The addition of super cute decals such as donuts, bows, and pearls displayed atop different pastel colors makes the set stand out. Thermal Cam SetMegan headed out to Atlanta in September sporting this set for the return of Music Midtown's yearly festival. The blue and orange thermal cam nails matched the hot girl coach's fit for the show, an orange "Hot Girl" crop top and metallic booty shorts. Galaxy SetCoca proves that not even the sky is the limit when it comes to her skills and creativity. The nail tech went hard on these galaxy nails, showcasing a different planet on each nail and countless stars and nebulas in beautiful splatters of blues, oranges, reds, and purples.&nbsp; Spooky SetThe first set of many for the spookiest month of the year, Thee Stallion shows off her simple, but hard design. Square, classic white nails are coupled with a dripping blood design styled in a stiletto shape to look like blood on teeth. X-Ray SetContinuing on the spooky theme, this next set demonstrates Michelle's knowledge of textures in an x-ray design. The almost glow-in-the-dark black and blue work of art features a different body part in x-ray, with a hand on each pinky, a skull on a middle finger, and a spine on an index. Venom SetMegan showed some love for Venom, the anti-hero from the&nbsp;Spider-Man&nbsp;franchise with this set. "This is probably my favorite anti-hero ever," wrote Megan. The black and white nails capture the alien's design with white polish used to mimic its liquid-like form. Decals include Venom's bulging eyes, its sharp, pointy teeth, and signature slimy pink tongue. &nbsp; <strong>Let us know which design was the most fire in the comments.</strong> via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/instagram-gallery-megan-thee-stallions-most-fire-nails-news.140966.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/instagram-gallery-megan-thee-stallions-most-fire-nails-news.140966.html</a>225009article, Instagram Gallery: Megan Thee Stallion's Most Fire Nailsblogs/10-2021/225009-instagram-gallery-m-s.jpg1Young Thug Rides Out To The Ms On "Road Rage"https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thug-rides-out-to-the-ms-on-road-rage-new-song.1992986.htmlfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-young-thug-rides-out-ms-road-rage/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-young-thug-rides-out-ms-road-rage/#commentsSun, 17 Oct 2021 09:58 GMT Young Thug announced&nbsp;Punk&nbsp;two years ago, shortly after releasing his official studio debut,&nbsp;So Much Fun. The&nbsp;lengthy wait for the album's release left fans with much anticipation, though, projects like&nbsp;Slime Language 2&nbsp;and&nbsp;Slime &amp; B&nbsp;with Chris Brown effectively held fans over until&nbsp;Punk&nbsp;dropped. The tracklist is stacked with features&nbsp;from Drake, J. Cole, Gunna, Future, and even the late Mac Miller. Many of his collaborators join the ever-eccentric world of Thugger but the rapper himself pushes the boundaries of his universe even further on&nbsp;Punk. "Road Rage," for example," finds Thug diving into his desires to obtain wealth by any means. With Taurus and prodbysmo handling the dreamy production on the track, Thugger showcases how he's manifested his dreams of buying a Corvette to crashing it, only to purchase another one. Check out the record below. <strong>Quotable Lyrics </strong>Red and white diamonds on my mans, he a ambulance Half a million to my dad, salad dressing, bought a ranch His&nbsp;last two weeks been busy from movin' in My mom took out her window to another Benz&nbsp; via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thug-rides-out-to-the-ms-on-road-rage-new-song.1992986.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thug-rides-out-to-the-ms-on-road-rage-new-song.1992986.html</a>225010song, Young Thug Rides Out To The Ms On "Road Rage"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Hotboii Takes A Shot At His Enemies On "All The Opps"https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/hotboii-takes-a-shot-at-his-enemies-on-all-the-opps-new-song.1992988.htfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-hotboii-takes-shot-his-enemies-all-opps/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-hotboii-takes-shot-his-enemies-all-opps/#commentsSun, 17 Oct 2021 09:52 GMT Coming out of Orlando, Florida, Hotboii has been impressing his fans with a plethora of dope high-energy tracks that speak on a variety of topics, including gang culture, money, jewelry, and any other hedonistic tendencies. His drops have always been consistent, and this past week, he delivered for his fans as he dropped the brand new song "All The Opps." As you will immediately notice, this song is incredibly catchy and features that energy we all know Hotboii for. Throughout the track, the artist takes aim at his opps and disses them in some pretty creative ways. From bad music to being simps, Hotboii has a lot to say about those who oppose him. Overall, this makes for a great song, that can be streamed below. <strong>Quotable Lyrics:</strong> All the opps music straight garbage, I need ear plugs All the opps broke as hell, ain&rsquo;t hard to get no income All the opps be beefing &rsquo;bout a bitch and then forgive her All the opps would be relevant, probably if I dissed them via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/hotboii-takes-a-shot-at-his-enemies-on-all-the-opps-new-song.1992988.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/hotboii-takes-a-shot-at-his-enemies-on-all-the-opps-new-song.1992988.html</a>225011song, Hotboii Takes A Shot At His Enemies On "All The Opps"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Dwayne Johnson Is "Brutal & Uncompromising" As "Black Adam" In New First Lookhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/dwayne-johnson-is-brutal-and-uncompromising-as-black-adam-in-new-first-features/blogs/itstheboombap-dwayne-johnson-is-brutal-uncompromising-as-black-adam-new/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-dwayne-johnson-is-brutal-uncompromising-as-black-adam-new/#commentsSun, 17 Oct 2021 09:50 GMT After the DC FanDome event this weekend, superhero fans have a lot to look forward to. Not only were we give the <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/the-batman-trailer-shows-a-badass-robert-pattinson-and-zoe-kravitz-in-gotham-city-news.141089.html" target="_blank">highly anticipated trailer to&nbsp;The Batman</a>, starring Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz, but we were also given a&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/the-rocks-muscles-astound-fans-as-he-shows-off-impressive-build-and-black-adam-regimen-news.133018.html" target="_blank">first look at Dwayne Johnson in his new role</a> of&nbsp;Black Adam. &ldquo;Ladies and gents&hellip; Enjoy your WORLD EXCLUSIVE first look,&rdquo; the 49-year-old tweeted yesterday. &ldquo;He is ruthless. He is unstoppable. He is the reason the hierarchy of power in the DC UNIVERSE is about to change.&rdquo; The four minute clip begins with an intro from Pierce Brosnan, who plays Dr. Fate in the film. &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve never seen the likes of it before,&rdquo; he says. &ldquo;Having done&nbsp;James Bond&nbsp;for ten years, four films, nothing compares to this. Black Adam&nbsp;also stars Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher. Speaking on his co-star, and the leader of the pack, Johnson, Hodge said, &ldquo;he&rsquo;s more brutal, uncompromising, fuelled by the depths of his pain &mdash; he&rsquo;s&nbsp;Black Adam.&rdquo; We then get to hear some words from the Man in Black himself. &ldquo;As you guys know, this character, this film, this universe, have been a gigantic passion project of mine for a very long time.&rdquo; &ldquo;The truth is, I was born to play&nbsp;Black Adam,&rdquo; the actor said with confidence, before sharing that the film is currently in post-production, and of course, giving fans a sneak peek at the intensity that will be coming their way when Johnson takes the big screen.&nbsp; The movie is set to hit theatres on July 29th, 2022. See the first look from the DC FanDome in the clip below.&nbsp; [<a href="https://www.nme.com/news/film/black-adam-dwayne-johnson-debuts-first-look-at-dc-character-in-new-trailer-3072397" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/dwayne-johnson-is-brutal-and-uncompromising-as-black-adam-in-new-first-look-news.141111.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/dwayne-johnson-is-brutal-and-uncompromising-as-black-adam-in-new-first-look-news.141111.html</a>225012article, Dwayne Johnson Is "Brutal & Uncompromising" As "Black Adam" In New First Lookbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Jamila Woods & Peter Cottontale Link Up For Lovely New Track "WYD"https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jamila-woods-and-peter-cottontale-link-up-for-lovely-new-track-wyd-new-features/blogs/itstheboombap-jamila-woods-peter-cottontale-link-up-lovely-new-track-w/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-jamila-woods-peter-cottontale-link-up-lovely-new-track-w/#commentsSun, 17 Oct 2021 09:36 GMT Peter Cottontale is a master of r&amp;b production all while Jamila Woods is one of the most interesting singer-songwriters out there. With that in mind, it should be no surprise that they would want to come together and deliver a truly enticing collaboration that would get fans excited. On Friday, that is exactly what they delivered with the brand new track "WYD (You Got Me)" which features both artists at their best creatively. The track sees Woods starting things off with a verse about a relationship in which the two partners always have each other's back. They are so in tune with one another that they know when the other is sad or unhealthy, which leads to a beautiful pairing. Peter Cottontale enters the track with some high-pitched vocals that ultimately work well within the instrumental. Overall, this makes for a great collaborative track, and you can check it out, below. <strong>Quotable Lyrics:</strong> You know my mood before I know it myself You hit me up just checking in on my health When you as if I'm okay I'm asking myself via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jamila-woods-and-peter-cottontale-link-up-for-lovely-new-track-wyd-new-song.1992987.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jamila-woods-and-peter-cottontale-link-up-for-lovely-new-track-wyd-new-song.1992987.html</a>225013song, Jamila Woods & Peter Cottontale Link Up For Lovely New Track "WYD"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1This Wilt Chamberlain Highlight Reel Has NBA Fans In Awehttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/this-wilt-chamberlain-highlight-reel-has-nba-fans-in-awe-news.141110.htfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-this-wilt-chamberlain-highlight-reel-has-nba-fans-awe/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-this-wilt-chamberlain-highlight-reel-has-nba-fans-awe/#commentsSun, 17 Oct 2021 09:18 GMT Wilt Chamberlain is one of those players who young NBA fans simply cannot comprehend. When you look at his career averages, you quickly realize that he was one of the best scorers to ever play the game. Unfortunately, due to the era in which he operated, his talents are sometimes undermined. In fact, you can't go one day on Twitter without someone trying to question Wilt's infamous 100-point game and whether or not it was legitimate. Thankfully, some of the doubts surrounding Wilt were put to rest yesterday as a 4K HD colorized video of some of Wilt's best highlights made its way to the internet. As you can see down below, Wilt was nothing short of dominant as he hit fadeaway jumpers all while making defenders look pretty silly. For many, this was the first time they got to see HD Wilt highlights like this, and it turned out to be quite the experience. As you can see in some of the tweets below, fans were impressed, although some still believe Chamberlain is a myth. For instance, there are still some questioning the validity of these defenders. On the flipside of that, many are convinced that Wilt could dominate in this era, especially at 7'1".

Cole, and Drake to up-and-coming acts like YNW BSlime and Lil Double O. To celebrate the album's release, he slid through to NYC for <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kim-kardashian-and-young-thug-to-appear-on-new-season-of-saturday-night-live-news.139692.html" target="_blank">his&nbsp;SNL debut.</a>&nbsp; &nbsp;Jean Baptiste Lacroix/Getty ImagesYoung Thug delivered a memorable performance as last night's musical guest on&nbsp;Saturday Night Live. Joined by Travis Barker, who teased his appearance during Thug's set hours before&nbsp;SNL aired, Thugger delivered an electrifying performance of "TICK TOCK." For his second song, Thugger came through on a softer note, alongside Gunna and Nate Ruess to perform, "Love You More." Thug has been teasing the album's release over the past few months. "TICK TOCK" kicked off<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thugs-quirkiest-punk-lyrics-news.141003.html" target="_blank"> the campaign for the album</a>, though he didn't end up including the song on the final tracklist. "Punk&nbsp;is just real life stories. The whole album is purified. It&rsquo;s just real,&rdquo; he said.&nbsp;&ldquo;The whole album is just focused on one point. The hard part about this shit is making 12, 14, 16 songs about one thing, without crossing up and saying the same thing. That is why this shit takes time. This shit has been going on for two years now.&rdquo; The rapper's new album is expected to move&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thugs-punk-estimated-to-debut-with-85k-95k-sales-news.141105.html" target="_blank">85K-95K</a> in its first week.

The Chiefs were projected to do big things this year but <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/stephen-a-smith-declares-an-end-to-the-reign-of-the-chiefs-news.140799.html" target="_blank">if there is one thing for sure, it's that their defense is horrific</a>. They can't stop anything and it is forcing Patrick Mahomes to play hero ball,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tyrann-mathieu-goes-off-on-chiefs-after-embarrassing-loss-news.140778.html" target="_blank">which has led to numerous turnovers.</a> Now, the Chiefs are ready to make a change as according Ian Rapaport of the NFL Network, Daniel Sorenson is out at safety, while Juan Thornhill is coming in. Despite this change, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo wanted to make it clear that the team isn't putting the blame on just one player. Jamie Squire/Getty Images&ldquo;First of all, it&rsquo;s not about one guy,&rdquo;&nbsp;Spagnuolo explained. &ldquo;To focus on one person, I don&rsquo;t think is fair. Did Dan struggle a bit last week? Yeah. &hellip; We take a guy who has a starting position, we think a guy has been doing a good job. Sometimes when you have plays that to the eye of everybody in there look worse than other ones, nobody sees the plays that he&rsquo;s making when you&rsquo;re covering somebody and they don&rsquo;t throw it there. I think Dan&rsquo;s had a lot of good snaps for us.&rdquo; Luckily for the Chiefs, they will play the Washington Football Team today, which should prove to be an easier matchup for them. If they end up losing, then this team is officially in big trouble. via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/chiefs-make-big-changes-on-defense-after-terrible-start-news.141109.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/chiefs-make-big-changes-on-defense-after-terrible-start-news.141109.html</a>225007article, Chiefs Make Big Changes On Defense After Terrible Startblogs/10-2021/225007-chiefs-make-big-cha-s.jpg1Conor McGregor Allegedly Attacked Italian DJ Unprovokedhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/conor-mcgregor-allegedly-attacked-italian-dj-unprovoked-news.141108.htmfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-conor-mcgregor-allegedly-attacked-italian-dj-unprovoked/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-conor-mcgregor-allegedly-attacked-italian-dj-unprovoked/#commentsSun, 17 Oct 2021 08:37 GMT <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/conor-mcgregor-shows-off-his-humongous-lamborghini-yacht-news.140700.html" target="_blank">Conor McGregor is currently recovering from a leg injury</a>, although that doesn't exactly mean he can't fight. According to TMZ, McGregor and his wife were in Rome this weekend, where he was hanging out with famous DJ Francesco Faccinetti and his wife. While the evening was going smoothly, Faccinetti claims that McGregor ended up striking the DJ in the face, pretty well unprovoked. It was a shocking turn of events for the DJ, who ended up getting his nose broken. &ldquo;I took a punch for nothing. That punch could go to anyone. My friends, my wife, or other friends. That&rsquo;s why I decided to sue Conor McGregor because he is a violent and dangerous person," Faccinetti said. Bennett Raglin/Getty ImagesMcGregor has been known to get into these fights before, but this situation seems truly bizarre. Faccinetti's wife also gave her thoughts on the situation, and as you can see, it was truly out of nowhere. &ldquo;Then out of nowhere, he threw a punch in the face of Francesco. He was inviting us to another party. Francesco said, &lsquo;Okay, let&rsquo;s go&rsquo; and he hit him. Luckily, he [Francesco] was very close so he [Conor] couldn&rsquo;t load up on his punch. Francesco flew back, fell on the table, and then on the ground. The first thing that came to mind was &lsquo;are we kidding? Is it a show?&rsquo; Then I was paralyzed," she said.&nbsp;"I turned around and saw that his friends were holding him against the wall because he wanted to continue beating Francesco. Then they took him away. I turned on the light and the guards turned them off. Francesco was bleeding. I wanted to help him and the guards chased us away. He will stay in Italy until October 26th. If you see him stay away from him. Don&rsquo;t go near him and ask for autographs because he is an unstable and dangerous person.&rdquo; There is still a lot that needs to be unraveled here, so keep it locked to HNHH as we will be sure to bring you all of the latest updates on the situation.&nbsp; [<a href="https://www.tmz.com/2021/10/17/conor-mcgregor-attacks-dj-breaks-nose-rome-italy/?adid=social-twa" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/conor-mcgregor-allegedly-attacked-italian-dj-unprovoked-news.141108.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/conor-mcgregor-allegedly-attacked-italian-dj-unprovoked-news.141108.html</a>225008article, Conor McGregor Allegedly Attacked Italian DJ Unprovokedblogs/10-2021/225008-conor-mcgregor-alle-s.jpg1Michael Porter Jr. Explains Why He's Not Vaccinatedhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/michael-porter-jr-explains-why-hes-not-vaccinated-news.141106.htmlfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-michael-porter-jr-explains-why-hes-not-vaccinated/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-michael-porter-jr-explains-why-hes-not-vaccinated/#commentsSun, 17 Oct 2021 08:10 GMT With 96 percent of the NBA vaccinated, the league has proven to have one of the most progressive vaccination campaigns in professional sports.

Recently, Porter Jr. got to give an in-depth answer on the topic, as he claimed that because he already got COVID twice, he has the antibodies to fight it. The science on this isn't fully backed up just yet, although Porter Jr. is confident that he will be fine as the team progresses throughout the season. Matthew Stockman/Getty Images&ldquo;We don&rsquo;t have years and years of data for how it can affect you. So for me, I know I&rsquo;m immune to COVID right now&mdash;more immune than a lot of people with the vaccine are.&rdquo;&nbsp;Porter Jr. said. &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve had it&nbsp;twice. I&rsquo;ve got the antibodies, all those things. It&rsquo;s just laying off on it for now.&rdquo;I&rsquo;m not against the vaccine. What I&rsquo;m against is not allowing other people to have a choice, or people trying to force it on other people.&rdquo; While some might be mad at Porter Jr's stance, there is no doubt that nothing is going to change his mind at this juncture. The Nuggets star is standing strong on his beliefs, and it will take a lot for him to change course on a dime. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://ssl.ulximg.com/public/userfiles/2021/10/17/GettyImages-1233441816.jpg" title="" /></div> Dustin Bradford/Getty Images[<a href="https://www.theringer.com/authors/rob-mahoney" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/michael-porter-jr-explains-why-hes-not-vaccinated-news.141106.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/michael-porter-jr-explains-why-hes-not-vaccinated-news.141106.html</a>225004article, Michael Porter Jr. Explains Why He's Not Vaccinatedblogs/10-2021/225004-michael-porter-jr-e-s.jpg1Young Thug's "Punk" Estimated To Debut With 85k-95k Saleshttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thugs-punk-estimated-to-debut-with-85k-95k-sales-news.141105.htmlfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-young-thugs-punk-estimated-debut-with-85k95k-sales/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-young-thugs-punk-estimated-debut-with-85k95k-sales/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 23:59 GMT Young Thug's <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thug-shares-sophomore-album-punk-first-impressions-news.140998.html" target="_blank">newest album, Punk</a>, is expected to move&nbsp;85,000 and 95,000 units in its first week after release, according to new estimates from&nbsp;Hits Daily Double. The majority of the units will come from streaming with 2,000 and 5,000&nbsp;coming from pure sales. With&nbsp;85,000 and 95,000 units, Punk will likely debut inside the top three on the Billboard&nbsp;albums chart.

The rapper mentioned that he focuses on strategy over emotion when working on music: &ldquo;strategy. I feel like your flow and your cadence, I feel like all of that comes from strategy.&rdquo; He also explained that &ldquo;Stupid/Asking," and&nbsp;&ldquo;Drive Slow&rdquo; are his favorite songs on the project, but that&nbsp;&ldquo;Road Rage" features the best lyrics. &ldquo;See the pussies on the sideline wishin' that I fall/Pull the skeletons out the closet, I'm 'bout to tell it all/Just want my money, my hoes and all my kids to ball/I'm road raging to the millions if I have to crawl,&rdquo; Thug raps on the chorus. Thug also appeared in another one of this year's&nbsp;highest-selling albums, Drake's Certified Lover Boy. Thug is&nbsp;featured on the track &ldquo;Way 2 Sexy," along with Future.

McCartney had said that the Stones are a "blues cover band."&nbsp; &ldquo;I&rsquo;m not sure I should say it, but they&rsquo;re a blues cover band, that&rsquo;s sort of what the Stones are,&rdquo; McCartney told the New Yorker. &ldquo;I think our net was cast a bit wider than theirs.&rdquo; Thursday, Jagger joked about the comments from McCartney: &ldquo;There&rsquo;s so many celebrities here tonight. Megan Fox is here, she&rsquo;s lovely. Lady Gaga. Kirk Douglas. Paul McCartney is here; he&rsquo;s going to help us &mdash; he&rsquo;s going to join us in a blues cover later.&rdquo; Michael Hickey / Getty ImagesThe Beatles and The Rolling Stones have had a long-standing rivalry since the '60s when both groups were among the most popular in the world. In&nbsp;April 2020, Jagger trolled the Beatles during an interview with Apple Music&rsquo;s Zane Lowe, when asked to compare the two bands: &ldquo;One band is unbelievably luckily still playing in stadiums, and then <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/paul-mccartney-reveals-that-john-lennon-instigated-the-breakup-of-the-beatles-news.140773.html" target="_blank">the other band doesn&rsquo;t exist</a>.&rdquo; That same month, McCartney slammed the Stones during an interview with Howard Stern:&nbsp;&ldquo;They are rooted in the blues. When they are writing stuff, it has to do with the blues. We had a little more influences &hellip; There&rsquo;s a lot of differences and I love the Stones, but I&rsquo;m with you. The Beatles were better.&rdquo; Check out Jagger's comments during the concert below.

The movie is a retelling of&nbsp;A Christmas Carol&nbsp;and will also star&nbsp;Will Ferrell and Octavia Spencer. &ldquo;Singing, dancing, and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made a whole lotta dreams come true,&rdquo; Reynolds said on Instagram. &ldquo;And this is my second film with the great [Octavia Spencer]&hellip;Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making. I&rsquo;m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists.&rdquo; He added: "These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I&rsquo;ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both." Steven Ferdman / Getty ImagesReynolds' wife, Blake Lively, teased the actor, referencing&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/michael-caine-clarifies-that-he-is-not-retiring-news.141090.html" target="_blank">Michael Caine's retirement</a>&nbsp;in the comments. In 2019, Reynolds discussed balancing his work life with family life during an interview with&nbsp;People: Blake and I don&rsquo;t do movies at the same time. If she is doing a movie in Thailand and I am doing a movie in Vancouver we would just never see each other. We operate as a unit, and that works really well for us. The kids stay with us, and the family stays together, and that is where home is. So if we are in Spain or Utah or New York, as long as we are together, we&rsquo;re home.

The fan clapped back at Sherman by drawing attention to his&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/nfl-free-agent-richard-sherman-arrested-in-seattle-for-burglary-domestic-violence-denied-bail-news.135731.html" target="_blank">domestic violence arrest</a> from over the summer. "Disappointed. Going to bounce back soon," Sherman admitted in a tweet. "Asked a lot from my body in a short amount of time. Will be back better." "Can&rsquo;t possibly come back any worse," the fan replied. Sherman fired back with: "I could come back as you." "You&rsquo;d immediately no longer be a threat to your wife, so that&rsquo;s good," the fan retorted. Adam Glanzman / Getty ImagesSherman was arrested on suspicion of burglary domestic violence, in July, but the charges were later dropped. The NFL opened an investigation into the matter shortly after. The legendary cornerback spent the first several weeks of the 2021 season without a team, until&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tampa-bay-buccaneers-sign-cb-richard-sherman-news.140120.html" target="_blank">joining the Bucs in September.</a> "I went with the best offer I had, the best opportunity to go out there and put some great tape on, to lead another group," Sherman said at the time. "I feel comfortable and confident in my abilities to go out there and execute and help that team win." Check out the Twitter interaction below.

They request that her&nbsp;daughter and seven others take the exam as well. The County claimed in a&nbsp;motion filed Friday that independent medical examinations will be needed to prove the extent of their "severe emotional and mental injuries." They explained that the plaintiffs are seeking "tens of millions of dollars to compensate them for their alleged mental and emotional injuries," and&nbsp;that the examinations will help evaluate the "existence, extent and cause" of their "alleged harm." Maddie Meyer / Getty ImagesThe County added that a "central tenet" of&nbsp;their defense is that the "severe emotional and mental injuries were not caused by any conduct of Defendants, but rather by the tragic helicopter crash and resulting deaths of their loved ones." They argue that&nbsp;the plaintiffs "cannot be suffering distress from accident site photos that they have never seen and that were never publicly disseminated." In response,&nbsp;attorneys for Bryant argued, "It does not take an expert -- and it certainly does not take an involuntary eight-hour psychiatric examination -- for a jury to assess the nature and extent of the emotional distress caused by Defendants' misconduct." A hearing on the issue is scheduled for&nbsp;November 5.

The event was a&nbsp;memorial service for fallen law enforcement officers and their families. "We expect everything of you, and it's beyond the capacity of anyone to meet the total expectations. Being a cop today is one hell of a lot harder than it's ever been," Biden said.

In Week 1, referees called&nbsp;11 taunting penalties, more than were called during the entire 2020 season. "We're right where we need to be and we're now seeing the correction we were looking for," NFL executive Troy Vincent told The Associated Press. "We saw the spike the first three weeks and now we're seeing the decline. The coaches and the NFL Competition Committee are pleased. Coaches have told us their players are adjusting, they're thinking about what they're going to do, knowing it may cost the team. These are game-changing penalties for a selfish act." Wesley Hitt / Getty ImagesThe decision to&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/fans-slam-nfl-over-strict-new-taunting-rules-on-display-in-preseason-news.137548.html" target="_blank">emphasize sportsmanship</a> reportedly comes directly from the NFL Competition Committee and the Coaches' Subcommittee, a group populated by&nbsp;team owners, presidents, general managers, and coaches. "The coaches felt over the last few years it had gotten out of control. We cannot move away from sportsmanship being the core of our game," explained Vincent, a former&nbsp;Pro Bowl cornerback. He added:&nbsp;"Sportsmanship has always been the core. The rules are very clear. Don't do it toward the opponent's sideline or at the opponent. That doesn't mean you can't celebrate, you can't have fun, you can't have spontaneous actions. You can jump, flip, celebrate. You just can't do it at an opponent. It leads to bad outcomes like players spitting at each other's face, players throwing punches and fighting, players kicking and stomping one other. Make a play like a professional and get back in the huddle. You can have fun, but you cannot get in another player's face. It leads to bad outcomes."

We did an exhibition of his work at the Louis Vuitton Foundation a few years back. We know he loved New York, and that he loved luxury and he loved jewelry. My guess is that the [blue painting] is not by chance.

McCaffrey&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/christian-mccaffrey-and-panthers-get-sobering-injury-update-news.139818.html" target="_blank">suffered a&nbsp;hamstring injury</a> during the team's win over the&nbsp;Houston Texans in Week 3. "It just hasn't been there yet,'' Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said on Friday. "He's doing everything he can. It's been three weeks. We hope to have him out there next week.'' Grant Halverson / Getty ImagesDespite being one of the <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/gerald-mccoy-calls-christian-mccaffrey-the-most-skilled-white-dude-in-nfl-history-news.96530.html" target="_blank">best players in the league</a>, McCaffrey has dealt with countless injuries in recent seasons. In 2020, McCaffrey played just three games for the Panthers, battling&nbsp;ankle and shoulder injuries. "I wish I had the answers, man,'' McCaffrey said, last week when asked about his injury. "If I had the answers, man ... I tell you what, I wouldn't be standing here answering these questions.'' Offensive coordinator Joe Brady says he's confident rookie Chuba Hubbard can continue to play as the team's starter. "It's nothing like, 'Oh, man, we lost our whole offense because we have one guy [out],''' Brady said. "We have enough playmakers on this team. I have to do a better job of getting the ball in their hands and we have to execute at a higher level.'' The Panthers will take on the Minnesota Vikings, Sunday, at 1:00 PM, EST.

"I haven't retired and not a lot of people know that," Caine wrote on Twitter, Saturday afternoon. The rumors began following an interview Caine did with&nbsp;BBC's Simon Mayo. Caine explained that he's being offered fewer roles as of late, and that, coupled with his deteriorating health, may mean Best Sellers will be his final role. &ldquo;Because I haven&rsquo;t worked for two years, and I have a spine problem which affects my legs so I can&rsquo;t walk very well, so&mdash;&rdquo; Caine told Mayo. Pascal Le Segretain / Getty ImagesCaine also referenced moving into the field of writing, having published several books. When pressed for an explanation, he added: &ldquo;There haven&rsquo;t been any offers honestly for two years, because nobody&rsquo;s been making any movies I&rsquo;d wanna do. Also, you know I&rsquo;m 88. There&rsquo;s not exactly scripts pouring out with a leading man that&rsquo;s 88, you know?&rdquo; Caine has appeared in over one hundred films throughout his storied career and won several&nbsp;Academy Awards. Since 2005, he has appeared in numerous Christopher Nolan movies including The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception,&nbsp;Interstellar, and more.

The Atlanta-born star has been busy celebrating, but he still found time to chop it up with Hot 97 about the work that he put into making&nbsp;Punk. When asked if he prefers to prioritize strategy or emotion when making his music, Thugger didn&rsquo;t hesitate to respond with, &ldquo;strategy. I feel like your flow and your cadence, I feel like all of that comes from strategy.&rdquo; Punk boasts a 20-song long tracklist, including features from J. Cole and T-Shyne on &ldquo;Stressed,&rdquo; Gunna on &ldquo;Recognize Real,&rdquo; Post Malone and A$AP Rocky on &ldquo;Livin It Up,&rdquo; and Drake and Travis Scott on &ldquo;Bubbly,&rdquo; just to name a few. While chatting with Hot 97, Young Thug revealed that his personal favourite tracks from his latest release are &ldquo;Die Slow&rdquo; with Strick and the solo track, &ldquo;Stupid/Asking.&rdquo; As far as his best lyrical work? The rapper believes that he killed it on &ldquo;Road Rage.&rdquo; &ldquo;See the pussies on the sideline wishin' that I fall/Pull the skeletons out the closet, I'm 'bout to tell it all/Just want my money, my hoes and all my kids to ball/I'm road raging to the millions if I have to crawl,&rdquo; the song&rsquo;s chorus goes. During his interview, Young Thug also spoke on how he&rsquo;s influenced other rappers like Drake and J. Cole, his experience writing for Adele, and his growth as an artist.

The clip has since made it&rsquo;s way online, giving fans a first look at Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz in character. &ldquo;Fear is a tool,&rdquo; the British actor can be heard saying as the famous bat logo shines upon a wall. &ldquo;When that light hits the sky, it&rsquo;s not just a call, it&rsquo;s a warning.&rdquo; The trailer is dark, sharp, and intense. It comes with a certain strength that shows that this version of&nbsp;The Batman isn&rsquo;t coming quietly (despite the COVID-19 related delays). Just yesterday,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/zoe-kravitz-shares-catwoman-photos-from-the-batman-ahead-of-trailer-s-release-news.141085.html" target="_blank">Kravitz posted a photo to her Instagram</a>, providing followers with a first look at her in costume as Selina Kyle, or Catwoman. Fans have been speculating what sort of persona she and Reeves have crafted for the role, and today&rsquo;s trailer tells us all we need to know &ndash; she&rsquo;s badass, well dressed, seductive, and tough. &ldquo;I can take care of myself,&rdquo; she says to Batman about a minute in. &ldquo;I don&rsquo;t care what happens to me,&rdquo; Pattinson says, wearing his superhero outfit. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s only going to get worse for you,&rdquo; Catwoman responds before the screen cuts to an action-packed battle sequence. While standing on top of a building, Kravitz says to her co-star, &ldquo;maybe we&rsquo;re not so different. Who are you under there?&rdquo; Cue more violence before Batman responds, &ldquo;I&rsquo;m vengeance.&rdquo; The Batman proves his strength over and over again throughout the trailer. Now that fans have seen the Twilight star in his bat suit, excitement is sure to to reach even higher levels than it already has. The movie will hit theatres on March 4th, 2022.

Earlier today, the streamer released the trailer for the upcoming eight episode series, which will give viewers a bit more insight into the life of the laughable character.&nbsp; &ldquo;Are you sure those two kids came out of those parents,&rdquo; Cena asks, while looking at a photo in the clip. &ldquo;That&rsquo;s an attractive couple, that one came out of them but the other one looks like a butt baby. My older brother told me there&rsquo;s two types of babies: One that comes out normal and then butt babies. Worse in every way, they come out of a woman&rsquo;s butt.&rdquo; &ldquo;Peacemaker is more of everything that you like about&nbsp;The Suicide Squad,&rdquo; the 44-year-old told&nbsp;PEOPLE. &ldquo;Step one, see&nbsp;The Suicide Squad. Step two, like&nbsp;The Suicide Squad. Step three, watch&nbsp;Peacemaker.&rdquo; Complex reports that Gunn wrote all eight episodes of the series himself, and directed five of them. &ldquo;We learn a lot about other characters, but I felt with Peacemaker, we really just scratched the surface of who this guy is, what makes this douchebag tick,&rdquo; the explained in an interview. &ldquo;I called up John immediately and I said, &lsquo;Hey, do you want to do this thing?&rsquo; And he was like, &lsquo;Yeah.&rsquo;&rdquo; Peacemaker will also star Danielle Brooks, Freddie Stroma, Jennifer Holland, and Steve Agee, among others. Check out the trailer above, and mark your calendars for January 13th, when the show will premiere on HBO Max.&nbsp; [<a href="https://www.complex.com/pop-culture/hbo-max-peacemaker-series-teaser-john-cena" target="_blank">Via</a>] [<a href="https://people.com/tv/john-cena-peacemaker-hbo-max-teaser-suicide-squad/" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/john-cena-reprises-his-character-from-the-suicide-squad-in-new-peacemaker-trailer-news.141088.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/john-cena-reprises-his-character-from-the-suicide-squad-in-new-peacemaker-trailer-news.141088.html</a>224971article, John Cena Reprises His Character From "The Suicide Squad" In New "Peacemaker" Trailerbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Jay Williams Claims He Got Death Threats For Kyrie Irving Takeshttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jay-williams-claims-he-got-death-threats-for-kyrie-irving-takes-news.14features/blogs/itstheboombap-jay-williams-claims-he-got-death-threats-kyrie-irving-ta/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-jay-williams-claims-he-got-death-threats-kyrie-irving-ta/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 15:40 GMT Kyrie Irving's stance on the vaccine has a lot of people up in arms these days.&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kyrie-irving-needs-to-be-traded-before-he-costs-the-nets-a-title-news.141032.html" target="_blank">There have been various hot takes on the internet</a> as to what the Nets should do with Kyrie, and as you can imagine,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/stephen-a-smith-issues-stern-warning-to-his-haters-news.141020.html" target="_blank">one of the loudest voices has been Stephen A. Smith.</a> Smith has received his fair share of criticism for dunking on Kyrie, although it seems as though Smith's ESPN colleague Jay Williams has gotten it just as bad. While speaking to TMZ recently, Williams revealed that he has received death threats due to the fact that he has defended Kyrie. Williams believes that the backlash against Kyrie is unfair right now, and as it turns out, these takes have some wishing death on the former Duke star. &ldquo;Thank God I almost passed away when I was 21 years old,&rdquo; Jay said. &ldquo;You know some of the crazy s*** that people say to me on the internet when they disagree with my opinion? Go hit a pole, go die again, aww Duke education. Thank God I went through that experience, &rsquo;cause I don&rsquo;t need other people to justify how I think about myself.&rdquo; Needless to say, these topics have become extremely polarizing to the point where people are issuing death threats. It is a truly unfortunate situation, and hopefully, Williams is able to find some peace sooner rather than later.

Vic heard it and felt it. I loved the idea of having a male perspective on assessing mental health,&rdquo; Jauregui said, according to&nbsp;Complex. The 25-year-old was once a member of Fifth Harmony alongside Camila Cabello, Normani, Ally Brooke, and Dinah Jane. The group announced their split back in 2018, with the girls having dreams of pursing solo careers. Jauregui&rsquo;s first project on her own is to be titled&nbsp;Prelude. The release date remains under wraps for now, but with the singer dropping singles this consistently, it likely won&rsquo;t be long until she&rsquo;s ready to share more with the world.

While some thought the album would be rock-inspired, it seems as though the artist has opted for more acoustic-based sounds as the album is filled with guitar ballads and softer songs. One of those efforts is "Insure My Wrist" featuring Thug's favorite protege, Gunna. Throughout the track, we get both artists rapping about their jewelry and their wealth. Thug talks about his jewelry costing so much that he has insurance on it, which is certainly a massive flex. Meanwhile, the instrumental is nice and soft, which leads to some nice melodies that wash over the track. Let us know what you think, in the comments below. <strong>Quotable Lyrics:</strong> Half a million, got insurance on my watch Half a million, I went got me some insurance on my wrist I told lil' ma "Be careful bitch, this all on my expense" I told her "Watch the wheels on the Bent', cause' it ain't rented" via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thug-and-gunna-do-some-flexing-on-insure-my-wrist-new-song.1992985.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thug-and-gunna-do-some-flexing-on-insure-my-wrist-new-song.1992985.html</a>224967song, Young Thug & Gunna Do Some Flexing On "Insure My Wrist"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Zoe Kravitz Shares Catwoman Photos From "The Batman" Ahead Of Trailer's Releasehttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/zoe-kravitz-shares-catwoman-photos-from-the-batman-ahead-of-trailer-s-rfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-zoe-kravitz-shares-catwoman-photos-batman-ahead/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-zoe-kravitz-shares-catwoman-photos-batman-ahead/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 14:36 GMT The trailer for the latest take on&nbsp;The Batman is set to drop at some point this afternoon, but ahead of the big reveal, some cast and crew members have been providing fans with sneak peeks.&nbsp; Yesterday,&nbsp;High Fidelity&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/the-batman-star-zoe-kravitz-reveals-her-intense-training-to-play-catwoman-news.105699.html" target="_blank">actress Zoe Kravitz shared a photo to her Instagram</a>&nbsp;showing her in costume as Selina Kyle, also known to some as Catwoman. The photo was also shared by director Matt Reeves, who&rsquo;s also been dropping hints about his latest project over on Twitter. &ldquo;What&rsquo;s Black and Blue&hellip;and Dead all over?&rdquo; he quote tweeted a post containing images of posters for Batman and Riddler. On October 14th, he also posted a fuzzy screenshot from the highly anticipated trailer, showing Batman&rsquo;s signature pointy ears looking out over a beautiful cityscape. &ldquo;Good Morning, from Gotham City,&rdquo; he wrote. &ldquo;Can&rsquo;t wait to show you more at #DCFanDome this Saturday.&rdquo; The plan is to premiere the trailer today, at the FanDome where some of the biggest DCEU fans will get to see it first. As&nbsp;Uproxx&nbsp;points out, it&rsquo;s unclear which direction Reeves and Kravitz will be taking for the character of Selina. In the past, we&rsquo;ve seen Michelle Pfeiffer play the role of a woman killed and brought back to life in&nbsp;Batman Returns, and Anne Hathaway portray a criminal turned good girl in&nbsp;The Dark Knight Rises. There&rsquo;s also been a lot of curiosity surrounding the casting choice for the latest Batman &ndash; Robert Pattinson. The British star first rose to fame after playing Edward Cullen in the cult vampire franchise,&nbsp;Twilight, and has gone on to diversify his portfolio since. See more of Reeves&rsquo; sneak peeks below, and look out for&nbsp;The Batman&nbsp;trailer dropping later today.

Various artists came out with some dope albums, while others re-released classic mixtapes from the last decade. Of course, the big release this week came from none other than Young Thug who dropped his album&nbsp;Punk,&nbsp;while Mac Miller had a posthumous release in&nbsp;Faces which is a re-release of his 2014 mixtape that had yet to make its way to streaming services, until now. Thankfully, our "Fire Emoji" has brought forth some of the best tracks of the week, and as you can imagine, Mac and Thugger are well represented here. For instance, the playlist kicks off with "Bubbly" by Thug featuring Drake and Travis Scott. From there, we have a Thugger and Mac collab in "Day Before," as well as songs like "Stressed" with T-Shyne and J. Cole. As for&nbsp;Faces, we made sure to include "Diablo." Some of the other additions here include "Da Truth" by Key Glock, as well as "Pissed Me Off" by Lil Durk.

Earlier today, the rapper went on a Twitter rant, airing his grievances about the shows so far since the tour kicked off on October 1st. &ldquo;Too much bitching and complaining on this tour,&rdquo; Bow Wow wrote. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m bussn cats asses EVERY NIGHT! Every night they try and complain and take something away from me!&rdquo; The 34-year-old then went on to tell Atlanta audiences that he plans to &ldquo;BUSS YALL ASS FOR 45 mins straight.&rdquo; Followed by a tweet reading, &ldquo;this might be my last show! I&rsquo;ve had enough.&rdquo; &ldquo;Here&rsquo;s the truth,&rdquo; Bow Wow shared. &ldquo;I do 15 min EVERY NIGHT! I can&rsquo;t even do my full songs. AND I STILL BE BUSTING FOLKS ASS!&rdquo; The&nbsp;Like Mike actor then said that the only way he would perform at this evening&rsquo;s show is if he&rsquo;s allotted the time to perform his full set. The Millennium Tour also has Omarion as a headliner, with Ashanti, Soulja Boy, and many others supporting alongside them. Apparently, Bow Wow has been in touch with &ldquo;O&rdquo; since his meltdown this morning, and the two have made plans to ensure tonight&rsquo;s show goes better for the &ldquo;Bound With Me&rdquo; rapper. &ldquo;Just got off phone w O. Tonight gone be one for the ages &hellip; I promise you that! I&rsquo;m going CRAZY I swear to god,&rdquo; he tweeted two hours ago. In another post, Bow Wow predicted that tonight&rsquo;s Atlanta concert will be the best performance that he&rsquo;s ever done.&nbsp; Only time will tell if the rapper delivers.

It has been a while since her memorizing 15-minute album from 2018, although since that time, she has come through with various singles. Now, she is back with another song, this time as part of the compilation album for&nbsp;Pokemon 25. The track is called "Art Show" and as you will hear, the song has a very interesting sound to it. There is this nursery rhyme element to it as every line rhymes, all while the production is super light and something that you would hear from a children's song. This should not be surprising, given the fact that at its core, Pokemon is a show and game for young children. Needless to say, this is a song you need to listen to understand the description we just gave, so check it out below. <strong>Quotable Lyrics:</strong> I wanna get inspired (Hey) I'm trying to go higher (Higher) I paint a perfect picture (Pic) I am the biggest bidder (Ba-boom) I love the different colors (Woo) They're mixing with each other (Yeah) It's such a combination (Hey) I call it integration (Aww!) via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tierra-whack-lends-her-voice-to-pokemon-25-album-with-art-show-new-song.1992983.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tierra-whack-lends-her-voice-to-pokemon-25-album-with-art-show-new-song.1992983.html</a>224962song, Tierra Whack Lends Her Voice To "Pokemon 25" Album With "Art Show"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Nike To Release "Iowa" Dunks As Lows: Photos & Release Detailshttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/nike-to-release-iowa-dunks-as-lows-photos-and-release-details-news.1410features/blogs/itstheboombap-nike-release-iowa-dunks-as-lows-photos-release-details/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-nike-release-iowa-dunks-as-lows-photos-release-details/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 14:02 GMT Last December, Nike released the "Iowa" Dunk Highs as part of their "Be True to Your School" series for their Dunks, however this year, it seems a new, low-top version of the popular series' shoe will be dropping at some point soon.&nbsp; Recently on Twitter, @Brandon1an posted&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/nike-dunk-low-iowa-officially-unveiled-photos-news.140256.html" target="_blank">early images and info concerning the new Nike Dunk Low "Iowa",</a> hinting at a potential release of the shoe coming sometime this fall. Inspired by the University of Iowa Hawkeyes' team colors, details of the Nike Dunk Low include a black based leather, surrounded by often called "Goldenrod"-yellow overlays around the shoe, with same colored yellow laces. Additionally, the shoe is supported by a yellow outsole and a white midsole.&nbsp; The "Iowa" Dunk isn't only known for the "Be True to Your School" series line by Nike, as the shoe has previously been reissued a few times since it originally debuted more than 35 years ago. It also previously released with a signature "W" on its heel, as an exclusive drop for famous rap group Wu-Tang Clan, and their family and friends, according to solecollector.com. Nike has&nbsp;revealed that the Iowa Dunks will be dropping on November 17th for a price of $100 USD.

Over the last 36 years, this shoe has received a ton of innovation, and every year, Jordan Brand comes out with new variations that play on the original silhouette. Even in 2021 and beyond, Jumpman has been looking to change things up and turn some head at every single opportunity. Heading into 2022, <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/air-jordan-1-high-element-surfaces-in-new-gore-tex-equipped-colorway-news.140709.html" target="_blank">Jumpman has some interesting Air Jordan 1s on the horizon</a>, including this latest women's exclusive that was just shown off by @zsneakerheadz and @pvasneakers. As you can in the post below, this shoe is called the Air Jordan 1 LV8D and it will debut in an iconic "Bred" colorway. What makes this shoe so unique and out there is the fact that it features a low-top silhouette, with a chunky midsole that essentially makes this sneaker a platform shoe. It is very much in the same vein as the Fenty Creepers we used to see from Puma, but with the Air Jordan 1 twist. Needless to say, the purists are not going to like these. In terms of a release date, nothing concrete has been announced although it is believed that these will be on the market by February of 2022. With that in mind, stay tuned to HNHH for all of the latest updates from the sneaker world.

Immediately after reaching its ATH, the currency began to weaken, and eventually, it suffered a month-long correction with prices hitting the $28,000 mark. Many felt as though the Bull Run was over, however, in August and September, the market started to go back up and investors were excited to see what would happen. On Friday, Bitcoin hit a massive milestone as it went above $60,000 for the first time since the aforementioned May correction. There are some very high projections for Q4, and some are stating that they already knew this was coming. According to the Financial Post, the recent pump was ultimately triggered by rumors of a Bitcoin Futures ETF which is set to be approved by the SEC this week. The ETF would potentially add billions of dollars into the market. Carlos Alvarez/Getty ImagesBitcoin has also been approved as an official currency in places like El Salvador, where inflation has ruined their fiat currency. There are various other countries that are interested in getting into Bitcoin, which means global adoption is almost here. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that the value is back to where it was back in May. For those who may not remember,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/elon-musk-tanks-bitcoin-price-after-voicing-environmental-concerns-news.131890.html" target="_blank">Elon Musk announced earlier this year that Tesla had added Bitcoin</a> to its cash reserves as a way to make profits and skirt inflation. Needless to say, his investment is paying off, as the company has made $1 billion from the investment. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://ssl.ulximg.com/public/userfiles/2021/10/16/GettyImages-1320843498.jpg" title="" /></div> Edward Smith/Getty Images[<a href="https://financialpost.com/fp-finance/cryptocurrency/bitcoin-tops-60000-nears-record-high-on-growing-u-s-etf-hopes" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/bitcoin-breaks-back-above-s60k-after-months-of-uncertainty-news.141080.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/bitcoin-breaks-back-above-s60k-after-months-of-uncertainty-news.141080.html</a>224958article, Bitcoin Breaks Back Above $60K After Months Of Uncertaintyblogs/10-2021/224958-bitcoin-breaks-back-s.jpg1Pa Salieu Drops Party Banger "Bad"https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/pa-salieu-drops-party-banger-bad-new-song.1992982.htmlfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-pa-salieu-drops-party-banger-bad/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-pa-salieu-drops-party-banger-bad/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 13:06 GMT Coming fresh off his latest EP,&nbsp;Afrikan Rebel, Pa Salieu is back with his latest single, "Bad," marking his first-ever collaboration with Manchester song-writer Aitch.&nbsp; The track is an absolute party rager, with groovy African beats, an insanely catchy hook, and synergy between the collaborators. The Coventry-raised rapper has been tearing up the UK Drill scene for a hot minute, with his debut single "Frontline" steadily taking its place as the most played track of 2020 on BBC Radio 1Xtra. The hit single led to exposure for the up-and-coming artist, who made his US TV debut with his performance of the song on Jimmy Fallon, followed by his first tour last May.&nbsp; Check out the song and music video below.

In fact,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tyson-fury-expresses-impatience-with-jake-paul-and-tommy-fury-news.140601.html" target="_blank">even Tommy's brother Tyson Fury is starting to get annoyed.</a> Recently, however, Fury was approached by TMZ, where he revealed that the fight will be made official within a month or two.&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tommy-fury-urges-jake-paul-to-send-him-fight-contract-news.140647.html" target="_blank">The two have been working on the deal,</a> and it seems like there are only a few things to work out. "Things are looking up now between that fight," Fury said "So hopefully we should get it closed in the next few weeks so we'll see." Jason Miller/Getty ImagesAs for the fight itself, Fury says he is going to destroy Jake Paul and that he is doing the former YouTuber a favor by even entertaining the bout. Paul doesn't do much for Fury's career, but he is up for the challenge anyway. &ldquo;This is an easy fight for me. A real easy fight. I&rsquo;ve been doing this since I was 7. He&rsquo;s not a boxer, he&rsquo;s going to see that when we fight. I will end his boxing career, there is no more Jake Paul after this fight. That&rsquo;s it," Fury said.&nbsp;&ldquo;Beating Jake Paul doesn&rsquo;t get me a shot at the world title. It doesn&rsquo;t get me any respect from other fighters because we all know what they think of him. All it is, is a good payday, an easy fight.&rdquo; For now, it seems like fans can expect the fight to go down soon. Whether or not it takes place in 2021, still remains to be seen.

He has been able to secure talents like Sheck Wes as well as Don Toliver, <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/don-tolivers-life-of-a-don-is-projected-to-sell-55-65k-copies-in-first-week-news.140762.html" target="_blank">who just came through with a brand new project</a>. With the Cactus Jack empire growing steadily, Scott is looking for some new people to sign on, and recently, it appears as though he just added a TikTok and social media star to the label. <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/swae-lee-and-malu-trevejo-dating-rumors-surface-she-denies-romance-news.133877.html" target="_blank">Some of you out there might know Malu Trevejo,</a>&nbsp;who is a 19-year-old social media star who has been in the spotlight since she was around 16. The star took to her Instagram account recently where she spoke about her birthday celebrations and how they involved being signed to Travis'&nbsp; label. Based on her previous social media output, it should come as no surprise that fans were surprised by this partnership. Mike Pont/Getty Images"Birthday girl I&rsquo;m so happy dreams come true got signed to&nbsp;<a href="https://www.instagram.com/cactusjack/" target="_blank">@cactusjack</a>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<a href="https://www.instagram.com/atlanticrecords/" target="_blank">@atlanticrecords</a>," she wrote.&nbsp;"I&rsquo;m so happyyyyy Libra gang." It remains to be seen what her role at the label will be, although perhaps some new tracks could be in her future. Influencers and social media stars love to try their hand at music, so perhaps this isn't as surprising as one would imagine. Either way, Trevejo's addition to Cactus Jack should bring about some interesting results, so stay tuned for more details as this story continues to develop. via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/travis-scott-signs-malu-trevejo-to-cactus-jack-records-news.141076.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/travis-scott-signs-malu-trevejo-to-cactus-jack-records-news.141076.html</a>224953article, Travis Scott Signs Malu Trevejo To Cactus Jack Recordsblogs/10-2021/224953-travis-scott-signs-s.jpg1Lamar Jackson Shocked By Louisville Jersey Retirement Announcementhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/lamar-jackson-shocked-by-louisville-jersey-retirement-announcement-newsfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-lamar-jackson-shocked-by-louisville-jersey-retirement-announ/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-lamar-jackson-shocked-by-louisville-jersey-retirement-announ/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 12:06 GMT Quarterback Lamar Jackson has already made his mark on the game of football, and he's still just 24 years-old. From winning the Heisman Trophy in 2016 playing at the University of Louisville, or winning the NFL's Most Valuable Player Award in 2019 with the Baltimore Ravens, Jackson's resume speaks for itself. Recently, the University of Louisville announced that they would be retiring Jackson's famous No. 8 jersey, only the second time in the school's history after Johnny Unitas' No. 16 jersey was retired back in 2003, well after his playing days, and a year after his passing. An incredible accomplishment for Jackson, whose excited but humble reaction reflected how much the gesture meant to him. Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty ImagesWhen surprised with the news of his Louisville jersey's retirement, on an ESPN set in which Jackson simply thought he was at for an interview, the star QB showed his excitement and appreciation, saying: "It's unreal. Can't really put that in words. It's like, you usually hear [names] like Johnny Unitas, those guys...That's crazy. And it happened so fast and I'm still alive to be able to see stuff like that. Be able to talk to those people still, you know, that I was in the building with, who I was seeing everyday, that's crazy," Jackson said. "That's touching right there. I ain't gonna cry on camera though. I'll cry when I get in the house," he joked.&nbsp; Jokes aside, the former Heisman winner and NFL MVP's career trajectory and accomplishments are no laughing matter.&nbsp;After finishing as the youngest Heisman Trophy winner of all time at nineteen, while also accumulating the second most total offensive yards in Heisman history, Jackson was selected 32nd overall by Baltimore in 2018, and proceeded to lead the Ravens to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons in the NFL.&nbsp; Check out the full video of Lamar's response, below:&nbsp; via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/lamar-jackson-shocked-by-louisville-jersey-retirement-announcement-news.141073.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/lamar-jackson-shocked-by-louisville-jersey-retirement-announcement-news.141073.html</a>224954article, Lamar Jackson Shocked By Louisville Jersey Retirement Announcementblogs/10-2021/224954-lamar-jackson-shock-s.jpg1Adele Breaks Spotify's Single Day Streaming Record With "Easy On Me"https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/adele-breaks-spotify-s-single-day-streaming-record-with-easy-on-me-newsfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-adele-breaks-spotifys-single-day-streaming-record-with-easy/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-adele-breaks-spotifys-single-day-streaming-record-with-easy/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 12:03 GMT From the looks of things,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/adele-previews-new-single-easy-on-me-on-instagram-live-news.140753.html" target="_blank">the world has been craving the return of Adele</a>. On October 15th, the 33-year-old released her first song since 2015, an emotional track titled, &ldquo;Easy On Me.&rdquo; According to Chart Data on Twitter, Adele has already begun breaking records with her re-entry into the music world. This morning, it was revealed that &ldquo;Easy On Me&rdquo; has already been played over 19.479 million times on Spotify, making it &ldquo;the biggest single day stream count for any song in chart history.&rdquo; The same account also announced that Adele&rsquo;s single had debuted at #1 on the global Apple Music singles chart. As if that weren&rsquo;t enough cause for celebration, the English artist is also breaking necks over on YouTube, where the accompanying music video has received well over 52 million views in just one day.&nbsp; Clearly, people all over the world have been enjoying &ldquo;Easy On Me,&rdquo; including Drake, who took to Instagram to&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/drake-calls-adele-one-of-his-best-friends-and-praises-her-new-single-news.141039.html" target="_blank">promote Adele&rsquo;s single to his followers</a>, even referring to her as one of his &ldquo;best friends in the world.&rdquo; Ahead of the song&rsquo;s release, the mother of one has been keeping busy, catching up with fans on social media.

That is exactly what happened last night as the artist's Spotify page was hacked and filled with some pretty bizarre images. First off, <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/6ix9ine-tries-to-argue-his-album-didnt-flop-disses-trippie-redd-and-lil-durk-news.117649.html" target="_blank">his profile picture was changed to Trippie Redd</a>, while there was another image of an Animorphs that turns 6ix9ine into a rat. There were also various images of penises, although we will not be showing those in this article. Perhaps the most egregious part of this was the artist's bio which read "I grew up always wanting to be like Trippie Redd and lil durk I&rsquo;d let them hit my girl and my mom. My mom p***y stand I came from the sewer. Wack 100 my boyfriend and he secretly crip.&rdquo; The Spotify hack came as a huge shock to fans on social media, who were egged on by others to take a look at what 6ix9ine was up to. As you can imagine, many were surprised by what they came across, although there were some who theorized that it was Tekashi himself who did the hack. The rapper has yet comment about it, so clearly he isn't pressed about the whole thing. In the meantime, dozens of hilarious memes were made to mark the occasion, you can check them all out down below. via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/6ix9ines-spotify-hacked-with-various-explicit-images-fans-react-news.141074.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/6ix9ines-spotify-hacked-with-various-explicit-images-fans-react-news.141074.html</a>224956article, 6ix9ine's Spotify Hacked With Various Explicit Images Fans Reactbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1FBI Agents Accuse Chicago Drill Scene For Violent Crimes Following FBG Duck Murder Arrestshttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/fbi-agents-accuse-chicago-drill-scene-for-violent-crimes-following-fbg-features/blogs/itstheboombap-fbi-agents-accuse-chicago-drill-scene-violent-crimes-fol/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-fbi-agents-accuse-chicago-drill-scene-violent-crimes-fol/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 11:45 GMT Law enforcement blamed the Chicago Drill rap scene in a press conference for its influence on crimes earlier this week as they&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/lil-durk-affiliates-c-thang-muwop-and-dq-arrested-for-fbg-duck-murder-report-news.140916.html" target="_blank">arrested five suspects tied to the 2020 murder of Chicago rapper FBG Duck</a> &mdash;&nbsp;Charles &ldquo;C-Murda&rdquo; Liggins, Kenneth &ldquo;Kenny&rdquo; Roberson, Tacarlos &ldquo;Los&rdquo; Offerd, Christopher &ldquo;C Thang&rdquo; Thomas and Marcus &ldquo;Muwop&rdquo; Smart. An agent, in a clip of the conference, explained that it was easy for the Feds to crack the case because the suspects bragged about committing the crime on social media. &ldquo;What&rsquo;s happening on social media and what&rsquo;s happening in music videos that are on YouTube, particularly in the drill rap genre, it shows you what&rsquo;s happening in the city,&rdquo; the agent said. &ldquo;It shows you exactly what&rsquo;s happening in the city, which are people are flooding the streets to commit acts of violence and then either bragging about acts of violence or talking about how they&rsquo;re going to retaliate through other acts of violence, and it&rsquo;s happening on a regular basis." "Again, that is why it&rsquo;s significant that as law enforcement, we&rsquo;re able to investigate and hold people accountable for the acts they&rsquo;re committing. For instance, you can go on the internet right now, you can see people in music videos, guns all over the place.&rdquo; FBG Duck and two others were killed last year, August 4th, 2020, in a drive-by shooting on a shopping trip in Windy City's upscale Gold Coast neighborhood. The suspects, alleged gang members of Chicago's infamous O-Block faction, with territories in South-side Chicago, were arrested on charges of murder in aid of racketeering, federal firearm violations, and assaults in aid of racketeering. Prosecutors attributed the suspects' motives for the killings to &ldquo;the purpose of maintaining and increasing position in O-Block, an enterprise engaged in racketeering activity, did knowingly commit the murder of Carlton Weekly, a/k/a &lsquo;FBG Duck.&rsquo;&rdquo; Shortly after the arrests had been made, Duck's mother took to Instagram Live to reveal the names of those detained and seemingly, to get some closure for the year-long case. "Muwop, C-Thang, whatever the fuck they call 'em, I was told that I could say it," said Duck's mother. "Them people promised me I would hear about my son's killers before the internet. So y'all heard it from me first, they got they ass." via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/fbi-agents-accuse-chicago-drill-scene-for-violent-crimes-following-fbg-duck-murder-arrests-news.141071.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/fbi-agents-accuse-chicago-drill-scene-for-violent-crimes-following-fbg-duck-murder-arrests-news.141071.html</a>224957article, FBI Agents Accuse Chicago Drill Scene For Violent Crimes Following FBG Duck Murder Arrestsbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Gabby Petito's Family Visit Wyoming Lake Near Where The 22-Year-Old's Body Was Foundhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/gabby-petito-s-family-visit-wyoming-lake-near-where-the-22-year-old-s-bfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-gabby-petitos-family-visit-wyoming-lake-near-where-22yea/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-gabby-petitos-family-visit-wyoming-lake-near-where-22yea/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 11:15 GMT For the last month,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/fbi-issues-warrant-for-brian-laundrie-after-he-illegally-uses-debit-card-news.139800.html" target="_blank">Gabby Petito&rsquo;s name has been all over the media</a> as the world came together to try to solve the mystery of her death. As the pieces come to light, we now know that the 22-year-old died of strangulation, but her fianc&eacute;, and the main person of interest in the case, Brian Laundrie, remains missing. While the hunt for Laundrie continues, the family that Petito left behind continues to mourn their loss and celebrate the young girl&rsquo;s legacy. Yesterday, her father, Joseph Petito, tweeted out a sweet message to Gabby. &ldquo;I now know why you came here,&rdquo; he wrote, alongside a photo of a beautiful blue lake, surrounded by trees and mountains. &ldquo;#gabbypetito has a beautiful view from now on. Love you, and miss you.&rdquo; According to TMZ, the lake the Joseph visited was in Wyoming, not far from where Petito&rsquo;s remains were discovered. The family is reportedly headed to the area to pick up their daughter&rsquo;s ashes and take them back to New York. At the end of September,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/gabby-petito-s-family-holds-funeral-in-new-york-as-search-for-brian-laundrie-continues-news.139949.html" target="_blank">the Petito family held a funeral for Gabby</a>, during which Joseph encouraged people to live the way his child did &ndash; by being kind, and spreading love to everyone. Her step-father, Jim Schmidt also shared kind words about the 22-year-old, saying that she taught him in a valuable lesson in learning how to value spending time with his loved ones over making money. Earlier this month, a&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/brian-laundrie-spotted-by-hiker-on-appalachian-trail-report-news.140359.html" target="_blank">man hiking the Appalachian Trail claimed to have crossed paths with a disoriented Laundrie</a>, who was reportedly headed for California.

Bayless is one of the biggest Michael Jordan stans out there, so perhaps he feels as though LeBron is a threat to MJs legacy. Either way,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/skip-bayless-lebron-obsession-reaches-criminal-levels-of-cringe-news.137937.html" target="_blank">Skip usually doesn't have nice things to say about LeBron,</a> but these days, that seems to be changing.&nbsp; In fact, after scoring 30 points in a preseason game on Thursday night, Skip offered big praise to the Los Angeles Lakers star. While speaking on&nbsp;Undisputed, Bayless claimed that LeBron is looking like an MVP candidate and that if he keeps up this pace, he will be well on his way to one of the best seasons of his career. Michael Loccisano/Getty Images for IAVA&ldquo;I will start off with your man LeBron James,&rdquo; Bayless&nbsp;told Shannon Sharpe. &ldquo;The quote on quote &lsquo;king&rsquo;. The phony GOAT. I thought LeBron James played great last night. I thought he looked, I&rsquo;ll go this far, an MVP candidate. Going into his 19th season, I&rsquo;m gonna give you MVP candidate. &hellip; He came out on a preseason mission last night. He said &lsquo;enough is enough&rsquo;.&rdquo; LeBron is going into his 19th season which makes his play that much more impressive. It is hard to be this good for this long, and LeBron is proving that you don't need to be young to be successful in the league. via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/skip-bayless-praises-lebron-james-in-shocking-turn-of-events-news.141070.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/skip-bayless-praises-lebron-james-in-shocking-turn-of-events-news.141070.html</a>224949article, Skip Bayless Praises LeBron James In Shocking Turn Of Eventsblogs/10-2021/224949-skip-bayless-praise-s.jpg1Former Raiders WR Andre Rison Defends Jon Gruden Amidst Resignationhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/former-raiders-wr-andre-rison-defends-jon-gruden-amidst-resignation-newfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-former-raiders-wr-andre-rison-defends-jon-gruden-amidst-resi/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-former-raiders-wr-andre-rison-defends-jon-gruden-amidst-resi/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 10:56 GMT Former NFL and Raiders wide receiver Andre Rison recently defended his former coach Jon Gruden, telling TMZ Sports that he knows Gruden is "not a racist", <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jon-gruden-resigns-from-raiders-after-racist-homophobic-sexist-emails-surface-news.140831.html" target="_blank">amidst his resignation as Head Coach of the Las Vegas Raiders</a>. On October 11th, Gruden released a statement to the media announcing he'd be stepping down from the position, as to not be a distraction for the team moving forward, f<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/keyshawn-johnson-calls-jon-gruden-a-fraud-after-racist-emails-force-raiders-resignation-news.140862.html" target="_blank">ollowing the use of racist and homophobic words in various emails spanning</a> nearly a decade being brought to light.&nbsp; Rison, however, told TMZ that regardless of the email scandal, he still believes Jon Gruden is a good person, who simply just made a mistake. Telling reporters that, "We all say some things behind closed doors that we regret or we wouldn't say in public. We've all made mistakes." As far as the context of the emails getting out, Rison said, "I believe who he said and what he said and who he intended it for, it was for that person and nobody else." Ethan Miller/Getty ImagesThe former Raiders wideout last played under Gruden back in 2000 but has since kept his relationship with his former head coach. Adding that throughout all the years that he's known Gruden, he'd never seen anything that hinted at him being a racist or a bad person. He even went as far as to offer an apology on Gruden's&nbsp;behalf, as he admitted that his former head coach was intentional in what he said in his messages to people like DeMaurice Smith and others.&nbsp; Rison then spoke on what he'd say to Gruden and what's potentially next for the former head coach, with this potentially being his last stop in the NFL. Saying that "You've already given this game some of the best tutelage and best leadership you could possibly give. So if you don't ever touch the game again, don't feel any type of way... Go on with your life and enjoy it with the rest of the Gruden family."&nbsp; Las Vegas' special team's coach, Rich Bisaccia, has taken over as the interim head coach for the Raiders since Gruden's departure.&nbsp; Check out Rison's entire response, below: <a href="https://www.tmz.com/2021/10/16/andre-rison-jon-gruden-las-vegas-raiders-email-scandal-nfl/" target="_blank">[via]</a> via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/former-raiders-wr-andre-rison-defends-jon-gruden-amidst-resignation-news.141068.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/former-raiders-wr-andre-rison-defends-jon-gruden-amidst-resignation-news.141068.html</a>224950article, Former Raiders WR Andre Rison Defends Jon Gruden Amidst Resignationblogs/10-2021/224950-former-raiders-wr-a-s.jpg1Dax Delivers Fresh Debut Album, "Pain Paints Paintings"https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/dax-delivers-fresh-debut-album-pain-paints-paintings-new-mixtape.122070features/blogs/itstheboombap-dax-delivers-fresh-debut-album-pain-paints-paintings/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-dax-delivers-fresh-debut-album-pain-paints-paintings/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 10:54 GMT Days after wrapping up his short but sweet 10-city tour, Dax is back with his debut album,&nbsp;Pain Paints Paintings. The album includes features from Nasty C, Tom MacDonald, Snow Tha Product, Lecrae, Yelawolf, and Clever. The emotional project boasts tracks with titles like &ldquo;The Devil&rsquo;s Calling,&rdquo; &ldquo;Battles with Faith,&rdquo; &ldquo;Does God Cry?&rdquo; and &ldquo;Bad Things Happen to Good People. &ldquo;Tbh this is the most thought I&rsquo;ve ever put into anything in my entire life,&rdquo; the rapper revealed via Instagram. &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve released a lot of music but this is my 1st official full length album and I laid it all out on the line.&rdquo; Dax shared that he put &ldquo;every single fibre of [his] body, mind, and soul&rdquo; into the creation of&nbsp;Pain Paints Paintings. &ldquo;Anger and Pain have always been a double edged sword in my life. They drive and destroy.&rdquo; For the artist, music has become an outlet that&rsquo;s allowed him to &ldquo;express and cope,&rdquo; but he spent many of his younger days facing confusion and bottling up his emotions. &ldquo;My goal is that my pain can be somebodies healing. Music is a part of all of our lives whether we know it or not and I know the blood, sweat, and tears that went into this 1st Album will provide a soundtrack you can carry with you for the rest of your life.&rdquo; Stream&nbsp;Pain Paints Paintings below and share your initial thoughts in the comments. <strong>Tracklist:</strong> 1.

The project brings back old-school 90s rap with features from Tee Grizzley, Peezy, Babyface Ray, and many more. The 18 track EP feels substantial, in both content and length, with standouts "Hustlas Soul" "Like That" and "Invested In Rap" alluding to the backstory and struggles behind-the-scenes of the rapper's come-up. The album is littered with a variety of themes &mdash; it's about staying true to your roots, staying true to yourself, and also about family. Cameos from Giovanni's girlfriend and daughter in tracks like "Hustle Muzik 4" bring back the feel-good feeling tied to memories of oldies rap, a style that the Detroit rapper is known to execute well, with previous projects like his 2020&nbsp;Spirit of A Boss and 2019&nbsp;No Validation Necessary.&nbsp;It's clear that it's a style that Payroll Giovanni has got on lock. Giovanni lays down comfortable and easy-going verses without fail, cementing in stone his old-school style in balance with a contemporary twist.&nbsp; via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/payroll-giovanni-paves-his-own-with-giovannis-way-new-mixtape.122069.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/payroll-giovanni-paves-his-own-with-giovannis-way-new-mixtape.122069.html</a>224952mixtape, Payroll Giovanni Paves His Own With "Giovanni's Way"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Cardi B Receives Support From The GOP After Political Backlashhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/cardi-b-receives-support-from-the-gop-after-political-backlash-news.141features/blogs/itstheboombap-cardi-b-receives-support-gop-after-political-backla/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-cardi-b-receives-support-gop-after-political-backla/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 09:56 GMT Cardi B has always been known for having a political side to her. During the 2020 primaries on the Democratic side, <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/cardi-b-goes-live-with-bernie-sanders-to-discuss-the-election-and-coronavirus-news.108492.html" target="_blank">Cardi B had numerous interviews with the likes of Bernie Sanders</a>, where she spoke about taxes and the potential success of a democratic socialist platform. Once Bernie was defeated,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/cardi-b-jokes-about-performing-wap-for-joe-biden-news.125268.html" target="_blank">Cardi started to talk to Joe Biden as he was set to take on Donald Trump in the General Election.</a> Ever since that time, Cardi has continuously voiced her political opinions, which typically fall on the same side as the Democrats. Despite this, Cardi continues to receive backlash from both sides, and recently, she took to Twitter to voice her displeasure,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/cardi-b-explains-why-she-no-longer-speaks-about-politics-news.141030.html" target="_blank">noting that she hasn't said anything political in a while because it never goes her way.</a> "I was tired of getting bullied by the republicans and also getting bashed by the same people I was standing up for," she wrote. These comments drew the attention of GOP spokesperson Paris Dennard, who told TMZ that Cardi should continue to voice her opinion, regardless of the backlash. Dennard, a Republican, believes that if Cardi stops speaking her mind, then other young people will too out of fear of political persecution.&nbsp; Dennard's message is a good one to send, as young people should be involved in the democratic process, regardless of political affiliation. Without youth engagement, there won't be many young people to uphold our institutions when the old guard eventually leaves the political sphere. Hopefully, Cardi feels more comfortable about sharing her opinions, very soon. via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/cardi-b-receives-support-from-the-gop-after-political-backlash-news.141066.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/cardi-b-receives-support-from-the-gop-after-political-backlash-news.141066.html</a>224944article, Cardi B Receives Support From The GOP After Political Backlashbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Britney Spears Speaks On Conservatorship: "Lord Have Mercy On My Family's Souls If I Ever Do An Intehttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/britney-spears-speaks-on-conservatorship-lord-have-mercy-on-my-family-sfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-britney-spears-speaks-conservatorship-lord-have-mercy/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-britney-spears-speaks-conservatorship-lord-have-mercy/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 09:38 GMT After what&rsquo;s felt like an eternity,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/britney-spears-celebrates-her-conservatorship-ending-with-provocative-photo-dump-news.140237.html" target="_blank">Britney Spears is breaking free from her conservatorship</a>. The &ldquo;Gimme More&rdquo; singer has had several facets of her life controlled for the last 13 years, and now, she&rsquo;s able to speak out about the horrors that she&rsquo;s endured.&nbsp; &ldquo;I&rsquo;ll just be honest and say I&rsquo;ve waited so long to be free from the situation I&rsquo;m in,&rdquo; the 39-year-old wrote in an Instagram post on Friday. &ldquo;Now that it&rsquo;s here I&rsquo;m scared to do anything because I&rsquo;m afraid I&rsquo;ll make a mistake!!!&rdquo; Spears then revealed that for many years, she was told that if she succeeded at things, her conservatorship would end, but it &ldquo;never did,&rdquo; no matter how hard she worked. The mother of two also shared that she&rsquo;s seen paparazzi running through the trees and onto the road as she drives home; her theory is that they want her to &ldquo;do something crazy,&rdquo; but she&rsquo;s incredibly fearful of losing her newfound freedom. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m celebrating Christmas way early this year,&rdquo; Spears told her followers. &ldquo;I believe any reason to find more joy in life is a good idea &hellip; and it&rsquo;s no secret that I&rsquo;ve been through it in the past &hellip; so I might have to do things a little differently from now on. The Mississippi-born star then wrote, &ldquo;Lord have mercy on my family&rsquo;s souls if I ever do an interview!!! In the meantime &hellip; I&rsquo;m staying clear of the business which is all I&rsquo;ve ever known for my whole life.&rdquo; Although she&rsquo;s been cautious, Spears has been taking time to celebrate her newfound freedom. She and her fianc&eacute; recently took a tropical vacation together, and she&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/britney-spears-says-shes-writing-a-book-about-a-ghost-stuck-in-limbo-news.140723.html" target="_blank">announced that she&rsquo;s got a book about a &ldquo;ghost stuck in limbo&rdquo; on the way</a>.

On Friday, <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/twitter-reacts-to-the-re-release-of-mac-millers-faces-and-his-new-young-thug-collab-news.141001.html" target="_blank">his infamous 2014 mixtape called Faces made its way to streaming services,</a> and it has a lot of fans feeling nostalgic, and rightfully so. Mac was looking to innovate with his sound, and there is no doubt that his mid-2010s output is looked at and remembered fondly by the fans. Back in 2014, Miller was looking for a major label deal, and while he ended up signing with Warner, it's no secret that he almost ended up with Jay-Z's Roc-A-Fella Records. As the artist's engineer&nbsp;Josh Berg told GQ, however, Mac didn't want to go that route because he thought that fans would accuse him of getting big off of a Jay-Z co-sign. Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images&ldquo;[Mac Miller] didn&rsquo;t sign to Roc-A-Fella because he was like, &lsquo;I&rsquo;m not gonna have it be that I needed the Jay-Z feature to get famous, for people to validate me and then people think it&rsquo;s about that validation,&rsquo;&rdquo; Berg explained. Eventually, Mac found his home with Warner where he produced some of the best albums of his career. Of course, Mac had respect for Jay, but he knew that people would undermine his success if it came from one of the biggest artists in the world. At this point, no one can question Mac's impact, and for all intents and purposes, he made the right choice with his label. <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/mac-millers-2014-faces-mixtape-hits-streaming-platforms-new-mixtape.122059.html" target="_blank">As for the re-release of&nbsp;Faces</a>, you can't help but look back and realize how that project changed the direction of Mac's career. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://ssl.ulximg.com/public/userfiles/2021/10/16/GettyImages-173742090.jpg" title="" /></div> Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images[<a href="https://www.gq.com/story/mac-miller-faces-making-of" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/mac-miller-was-motivated-to-become-a-star-without-jay-zs-help-news.141065.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/mac-miller-was-motivated-to-become-a-star-without-jay-zs-help-news.141065.html</a>224946article, Mac Miller Was Motivated To Become A Star Without Jay-Z's Helpblogs/10-2021/224946-mac-miller-was-moti-s.jpg1Kyrie Irving Needs To Be Traded Before He Costs The Nets A Titlehttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kyrie-irving-needs-to-be-traded-before-he-costs-the-nets-a-title-news.1features/blogs/itstheboombap-kyrie-irving-needs-be-traded-before-he-costs-nets-t/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-kyrie-irving-needs-be-traded-before-he-costs-nets-t/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 09:15 GMT When Kevin Durant was making his free agency decision in 2019, there were plenty of rumors surrounding where he would ultimately go. Some felt as though he would come back to the Golden State Warriors, while hopeful New York sports fans thought it was a done deal that he would join the Knicks. Instead, KD went to Brooklyn Nets alongside Kyrie Irving. At the time, it was reported that Kyrie and KD were always going to team up together and that in the end, it was Kyrie who chose Brooklyn over New York. Needless to say, if it weren't for Kyrie, KD would have never gone to Brooklyn. Just a year later, the Nets found themselves with a third superstar on the team in James Harden. Harden wanted out of Houston and with two&nbsp;big&nbsp;players&nbsp;on the Nets, he knew that Brooklyn was the place to be if he wanted to win his first NBA title. Last season, things didn't go as planned as Kyrie hurt his ankle in the second round of the playoffs, which ultimately led to elimination at the hands of the eventual champion Milwaukee Bucks. Heading into this season, fans were convinced that 2021-22 would be their season, as all three stars would be healthy. Unfortunately, those plans have been wiped away due to Kyrie's stance on the COVID-19 vaccine. Elsa/Getty ImagesWhile Kyrie claims he isn't anti-vaxx, he is still refusing to get the jab. In some cities, this would not be a problem, however, there are strict restrictions in Brooklyn that would keep him from playing home games without a shot. In fact, Kyrie would have to miss 45 games this season due to mandates in opposing markets. While Kyrie was eager to take on a part-time role with the team, the Nets quickly told him that such a thing was simply not possible. The Nets are not going to tolerate any player dedicating only half of their time to the team, which is certainly a good precedent to set, given Kyrie's history with treating the NBA like it's a part-time job that he can clock in and out of. As of right now, there is a lot of discourse surrounding whether or not Kyrie is being selfish with his decision. Quite frankly, Kyrie can do whatever he wants with his body. Any reasonable person can agree that we should have full control over our bodily autonomy. If you don't want to get the vaccine, that is simply your right. However, when you are part of a team, and that team requires its players to be vaccinated, there becomes a very conflict. Everyone on the Nets was willing to do whatever it took to be able to play this year. Kyrie, on the other hand, is trying to make a statement on behalf of the "voiceless," who just so happen to be about 40 percent of the United States.&nbsp; <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://ssl.ulximg.com/public/userfiles/2021/10/15/GettyImages-1321225736%20%283%29.jpg" title="" /></div> Sarah Stier/Getty ImagesGiven his constant backpedaling and circular speak, it's clear that Kyrie has no interest in getting the vaccine, and no one on his team is going to be able to convince him otherwise. KD and Harden are his two most prominent teammates, and as they have noted in the media, they have no clue where Kyrie truly stands right now. After following him to Brooklyn with the promise of a championship, they have been left in the dust, and it's not a good look for anybody. This is ultimately why the Nets need to trade Kyrie immediately. When Kyrie is healthy, which isn't often, he is one of the best point guards in the NBA. As of today, however, Kyrie isn't even injured and he still can't play. As a result, he, effectively, holds no value to the Brooklyn Nets organization. The Nets' point guard situation is now mangled, and they have nothing to show for it. If the team were to trade Kyrie, they could get a very serious haul in return, and that haul would certainly have to include a point guard. The big issue here is that the Nets are limited as to who they can make a trade with given the various mandates around the United States. Not to mention, any team that trades for Kyrie has to prepare for the possibility of him not being available for away games in the postseason depending on who they are playing against in any given series. Regardless of how you look at it, the Nets are in a near-impossible situation. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://ssl.ulximg.com/public/userfiles/2021/10/15/GettyImages-1322723849.jpg" title="" /></div> Sarah Stier/Getty ImagesThis doesn't mean something can't get done, it just means it might take a bit more persuasion for a team to bite. Perhaps the Nets will even partner up with the Philadelphia 76ers, who are looking to get rid of Ben Simmons right now. Given the fact that most teams don't want to give up too much for Simmons, Kyrie could prove to be the perfect bargaining chip. Of course, there are also the rumors that Kyrie will retire if he's traded, although that seems to be more of a bluff than anything else. The Nets can do whatever they want with the point guard, and if they find a willing trade partner, it will be up to Kyrie to suck it up and report to his new team. Once again, Kyrie does not have to take the vaccine. Only he knows what is best for his body. With that said, the Nets know what is best for their franchise, and at this moment, Kyrie just does not fit that bill anymore. via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kyrie-irving-needs-to-be-traded-before-he-costs-the-nets-a-title-news.141032.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kyrie-irving-needs-to-be-traded-before-he-costs-the-nets-a-title-news.141032.html</a>224938article, Kyrie Irving Needs To Be Traded Before He Costs The Nets A Titleblogs/10-2021/224938-kyrie-irving-needs-s.jpg1Brittany Renner Issues A Warning To The Men Of Jackson Statehttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/brittany-renner-issues-a-warning-to-the-men-of-jackson-state-news.14106features/blogs/itstheboombap-brittany-renner-issues-warning-men-jackson-state/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-brittany-renner-issues-warning-men-jackson-state/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 09:14 GMT Brittany Renner has become a controversial voice as of late, <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/pj-washington-responds-to-brittany-renners-stepdaddy-season-video-news.139293.html" target="_blank">especially after her failed relationship with PJ Washington</a>. Many felt as though she had taken advantage of the young NBA star and that she even groomed him. In the end, nothing really came of the internet scrutiny, as Renner has become the ultimate troll. <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/brittany-renner-vows-to-stand-her-ground-amid-pj-washington-drama-news.138265.html" target="_blank">She is always saying things to get a rise out of people</a>, and you can tell that she truly thrives on being the villain. It has proven to be a successful grift for her, and it won't be stopping soon. In fact, Renner drew some more criticism just yesterday as she took to Twitter with a small update on where she is. The model is now in the state of Mississippi, where she is now set to go after the men at one of the leading HBCUs in the state. Tommaso Boddi/Getty Images for Fashion Nova"Hey Jackson State! Hide your sons," she wrote with a tongue sticking out emoji. Of course, Jackson State is a college with various athletes, which had many feeling as though she was threatening to groom some up-and-coming talents. Renner told some of her detractors to shut up about it, but as always, she has done a solid job at getting people to talk about her antics. As for the men of Jackson State, hopefully they watch out, as you never want to find yourself in a compromising position.&nbsp; via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/brittany-renner-issues-a-warning-to-the-men-of-jackson-state-news.141063.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/brittany-renner-issues-a-warning-to-the-men-of-jackson-state-news.141063.html</a>224939article, Brittany Renner Issues A Warning To The Men Of Jackson Stateblogs/10-2021/224939-brittany-renner-iss-s.jpg1Drake Shows Off His Long-Range Jumper During Shootaroundhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/drake-shows-off-his-long-range-jumper-during-shootaround-news.141062.htfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-drake-shows-off-his-longrange-jumper-during-shootaround/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-drake-shows-off-his-longrange-jumper-during-shootaround/#commentsSat, 16 Oct 2021 08:43 GMT <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/drake-gets-into-it-with-the-ref-at-bronny-james-jrs-basketball-game-news.133718.html" target="_blank">Drake is one of the biggest basketball fans in the rap game</a>. He is currently an ambassador for the Toronto Raptors, and in that role, he has seen them win an NBA title. At this point, there is no one prouder for his hometown team than Drizzy, and it has always made Raptors games a whole lot of fun to watch.&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/drake-returns-to-toronto-raptors-broadcast-talks-kawhi-and-going-on-tour-news.140856.html" target="_blank">Drake can typically be found sitting courtside with one of his associates,</a> and the energy he brings is simply unmatched. The artist recently dropped his new album&nbsp;Certified Lover Boy, and since that time, he has been enjoying time with his family, all while relaxing and indulging in various leisure activities. One such activity just so happens to be, you guessed it, playing basketball. Cole Burston/Getty ImagesIn a recent video posted by DJ Akademiks, Drake can be seen doing some shooting drills on the court in his Toronto home. The artist is putting up long-range jumpers, although he is just ahead of the three-point line. Regardless, the artist is doing a pretty good job of knocking shots down, although there is definitely some room for improvement as he missed a shot at the end. <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/drake-trolls-yk-osiris-over-basketball-game-dog-walked-b2k-osiris-news.140151.html" target="_blank">Drake has played basketball against other artists</a>, and he always seems to put up a solid effort.

Ever since the release of iSpy with Lil Yachty a few years ago, KYLE has ascended the ranks of pop-rap, and to this day, he continues to thrive. With that said, KYLE recently came through with a brand new track called "Sunday," which sees the artist going for an r&amp;b type sound. Throughout the song, KYLE sings about Sundays and how he wishes to spend the evening with a girl he likes. He sings about a failed situationship in which the two parties simply cannot get away from one another.

The artist has been going at it for a very long time now, and on Friday, <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thug-dominates-on-punk-ft-drake-travis-scott-j-cole-gunna-juice-wrld-mac-miller-doja-cat-and-m-new-mixtape.122058.html" target="_blank">he dropped off his brand new album&nbsp;Punk</a> which appears to be a spiritual successor to&nbsp;Beautiful Thugger Girls. Acoustic ballads can be heard all across the tracklist, and there are some dope tracks to be found here, including "Stressed" with J. Cole and T-Shyne. Throughout this track, we get some nice melodies all while J. Cole comes in and spits some bars, all while doing a Thugger impression later on in the song. Overall, it is a solid effort from these three that goes hard. If you're a fan of any of the artists billed here, then this is a must-listen track for the weekend. <strong>Quotable Lyrics:</strong> Rocky Balboa, I'm boxin' with ya, hey (Woah, woah, woah, woah) I don't know if I wanna sock it to ya, hey (Woah, woah, woah, woah) I told her buy Huaraches for me (Woah, woah, woah, woah) Skeletons out the closet for me, hey (Woah, woah, woah, woah) via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thug-teams-up-with-j-cole-and-t-shyne-on-smooth-track-stressed-new-song.1992979.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thug-teams-up-with-j-cole-and-t-shyne-on-smooth-track-stressed-new-song.1992979.html</a>224937song, Young Thug Teams Up With J.

Many, like Gabrielle Union, apparently, wanted to be&nbsp;the <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/dababy-settles-with-video-vixen-news.104667.html" target="_blank">"it girl" in Rap videos</a>. She's celebrated for her film and television roles, but Union recently sat down with JJ Redick and Tommy Alter on The Old Man &amp; The Three podcast where she spoke about her dreams of fame early on in her career. &ldquo;I got this internship in my last year of school, and I was like the office gofer, help, or whatever, and I worked in the kid's department," she said. "So we were working with Hayden Panetierre and Jessica Biel and Shane West and all of those young child actors." Charley Gallay / Stringer / Getty Images"I&rsquo;d talk to their parents and managers and whatnot, and when my internship ended, they were like, &lsquo;Would you ever consider like, being one of our clients and us representing you.&rdquo; The actress said she "had such low self-esteem" but admitted that she&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/saweetie-reveals-her-mother-was-once-a-video-vixen-news.118753.html" target="_blank">"wanted to be a video hoe so bad."</a> Union had no aspirations of being in films, television shows, or commercials. "I wanted to be the chosen video hoe. That's what we called them then," she added. "Now they are video vixens, IG models, yeah, but I wanted to be a hot b*tch." Apparently, she lacked "big boobs or an ass" so she didn't feel as desired as other women. "I was literally auditioning for like, 'California Love' video with Tupac." Union said she booked other gigs quickly, but they weren't aligning with her <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/cardi-b-was-a-video-vixen-for-pusha-t-before-beating-him-for-best-rap-album-news.72293.html" target="_blank">music video goals</a>.

Earlier this week, we reported on<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/chuck-liddell-sent-to-jail-after-domestic-violence-arrest-news.140788.html" target="_blank"> UFC icon Chuck Liddell's arrest </a>following an alleged altercation with his wife, Heidi. The pair have been married for 10 years and have lived a relatively quiet life, however, that all came crashing down on Monday after reports surfaced that Liddell was taken into custody on charges of domestic battery. It was reportedly around 12:00 a.m. when police responded to a call regarding a "family disturbance." A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department told PEOPLE,&nbsp;"Upon arrival deputies determined Charles Liddell and his wife had been involved in a physical altercation." Vivien Killilea / Stringer / Getty ImagesLiddell was later released from the Malibu Sheriff's Station after posting his $20K bond. He did not waste any time ending his marriage as it has been reported today (October 15) that the champion fighter has filed for divorce. His estranged wife has not issued any public statements regarding the incident, but Liddell took to his Instagram to allege that he is a<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/chuck-liddell-caught-on-camera-following-domestic-violence-arrest-news.140804.html" target="_blank"> victim of domestic violence</a>, not the perpetrator. "The deputies informed me that my wife would be arrested, as I did not respond<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tyga-breaks-silence-on-domestic-abuse-allegations-news.141044.html" target="_blank"> to her assault</a> while I sustained bruising and lacerations. I volunteered to go in her place," he wrote. "This was one of many times I have tried to shield a family mental health issue from the public purview. It has become painfully apparent that this cannot continue, as our private life has now reached a public breaking point." Read through his full statement below.

He has gone on record to say that his most recently released record was <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/meek-mill-chooses-between-expensive-pain-and-championships-news.140358.html" target="_blank">better than 2018's Championships</a> in his eyes, and Expensive Pain went on to debut at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.

There are artists who would love to accomplish those numbers, but Meek Mill isn't concerned with where he lands on Billboard. Theo Wargo / Staff / Getty Images"Even before my album just came out.

He was asked if he cares about where he debuts on the Billboard charts, and it is clear that securing top spots are the least of his worries.&nbsp; "Me, I'd rather take me off Billboard," said Meek. "You gotta think about, what is the purpose of me being on Billboard. If Jay-Z talkin' 'bout he don't believe Billboard...he been in the game for 30 years. Why should I put myself in a position to be where they say, allegedly, something is being manipulated, and then I'm&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/rick-ross-shows-meek-mills-expensive-pain-some-mmg-love-news.140161.html" target="_blank">putting my brand</a> on a list that's being manipulated."

Santana's best friend is Yung Miami, a rapper who Minaj apparently has blocked. While the City Girls star has petitioned for Minaj to unblock her, we're not sure if her request has been fulfilled. Meanwhile, Santana jokingly-non-jokingly asked Minaj for a feature, and while she did not give him a direct answer at the time, she returned to show that<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/nicki-minaj-faces-bullying-accusations-after-tiktok-user-calls-her-out-news.140890.html" target="_blank"> she supports him</a>.

Initially, it was unclear what had occurred, but later, a promoter pressed charges.

A clip of controversial social media influencer Myron Gaines from Fresh &amp; Fit podcast has gone viral, and in it, he shared a tidbit about what he has heard from women regarding how Drake interacts with him at these events.

"That's what I want guys to put in their minds is that the by-product of his success is the women are coming there chasing him and he doesn't pay attention to them. He's more focused on the music, meeting the other guys there, the other musicians there and that's where I kind of want guys to be with."

Drake has obviously dominated the music industry for years as he's won awards, broken records, and set himself apart in a category all his own. The OVO Sound mogul has a dedicated fanbase that often goes to bat for him, so much so that some target other artists on social media. We previously reported on the news that&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/doja-cat-passes-drake-to-become-rapper-with-most-monthly-listeners-on-spotify-news.140971.html" target="_blank">Doja Cat has surpassed Drake</a> as the&nbsp;rapper with the most monthly listeners on Spotify, and his fans did not skip a beat in expressing their disapproval. Rich Fury / Staff / Getty ImagesOne person caught Lil Nas X's attention after Pop Base tweeted that he and Doja both had the&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/dababy-surpasses-drake-in-monthly-spotify-listeners-news.132222.html" target="_blank">most&nbsp;monthly listeners</a> on Spotify. "The worst era of music ever," the person wrote. Nas X replied, "It&rsquo;s crazy how every single generation says this when a new era of music approaches. like it&rsquo;s millions of artists out, nobody forcing y&rsquo;all to listen to anyone." Politician Frangell Basora told Lil Nas X to use the criticism as an opportunity to "level up." "You get what he means, though. That <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/drake-reportedly-hits-500-million-spotify-streams-in-2021-alone-news.125883.html" target="_blank">Drake and Nicki era </a>was absolutely everything &mdash; and then the Jay and Eminem era before then. Use the criticism to level up," he said. "Make the music that&rsquo;s on the level of the people who&rsquo;ve inspired you to make music in the first place. Don&rsquo;t settle."

She has been receiving a steady stream of well-wishes following the news that she was hit by a car&nbsp;yesterday (October 14). According to TMZ, the accident occurred in Los Angeles as Segal was crossing the street. Frazer Harrison / Staff / Getty ImagesReports state that it was approximately 11:40 a.m. when Segal was at a crosswalk, and when she began to make her way across, a Tesla struck her. TMZ reports that the vehicle was making a left turn and apparently did not see the actress.<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tiger-woods-posts-first-photo-since-car-accident-news.130736.html" target="_blank"> She was hit</a> and the driver is said to have stopped to help Segal.

The record has caused the Atlanta icon to trend throughout the day, but there is a legal hurdle that Young Thug is facing now that he has filed a lawsuit against a woman he claims handed over his personal property to a stranger. According to AllHipHop, Young Thug returned home to his luxury apartment and while exiting his vehicle, he accidentally left a bag behind. He claims an employee of the complex did not follow protocol and gave away his bag that housed stacks of cash, jewelry,<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/young-thug-and-asap-rocky-spotted-in-studio-ahead-of-punk-release-news.140037.html" target="_blank"> and unreleased music</a>. Bennett Raglin / Stringer / Getty Images"Upon arrival at The Trace, Plaintiff entered the parking garage with his resident parking pass and parked on the third (3rd) floor. Plaintiff unloaded his belongings and then went to his apartment," the lawsuit reads. "Unbeknownst to Plaintiff, a leather Louis Vuitton bag was left beside his vehicle. A resident of The Trace reported the bag next to Plaintiff's vehicle to Lillie Bouie, an employee with The Trace concierge service." "At approximately 6:30 p.m. on November 2020, Ms. Bouie retrieved the Louis Vuitton bag. Ms. Bouie knew the bag belonged to Plaintiff due to the brand of the bag and because it was immediately next to <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/karlae-hands-young-thug-s100k-for-his-birthday-news.137775.html" target="_blank">Plaintiff's black Lamborghini</a>." The court documents state that she then placed the bag in a secured and locked location along with a note to the other employees "not to release the bag to anyone without contacting her first" in order to make sure that it went to the right person. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://ssl.ulximg.com/public/userfiles/2021/10/15/GettyImages-618685920.jpg" title="" /></div> Theo Wargo / Staff / Getty ImagesHowever, another employee named Latoya Guest reportedly did the opposite. She is accused of seeing the note and handing over the bag to "an unknown person." The contents of the bag included: A. $40,000.00 in U.S. Currency; B.

The Brooklyn Nets baller has become the topic of discussion as his choice to remain unvaccinated has been debated. Sports leagues are cracking down on players who remain unvaccinated as mandates around the country shift the way companies do business. It has been determined that Irving will<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/florida-politician-likens-kyrie-irvings-vaccine-status-to-magic-johnsons-hiv-diagnosis-news.140921.html" target="_blank"> sit out home games</a> for the time being and he may not be able to play in certain states, depending on the regulations. Irving recently took to Instagram Live to&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kyrie-irving-speaks-on-vaccine-drama-people-are-losing-their-jobs-to-mandates-news.140936.html" target="_blank">defend his position</a> and to let people know that he does not have any plans to retire. In a recent interview with Minnesota Timberwolves&nbsp;center&nbsp;Karl-Anthony Towns, the basketball star revealed to NJ.com that he supports people's rights to choose.

"I'm obviously a strong believer in the vaccine," Towns&nbsp;said. "I've been through so much and it would be kind of contradictory to not be on the pro-vaccine side... But what I will say is that I believe in choice and I like to give people their choice and I have no problem with people having their choice." He believes Americans have the right to refuse the vaccine, however, he was against how people are going about making excuses. "They make their own decisions on their own bodies and their own families. I have no ill will towards that.&nbsp;The only thing I would say is just<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/nba-player-karl-anthony-towns-reveals-mom-in-coma-due-to-coronavirus-news.107141.html" target="_blank"> don't give me a bullsh*t excuse</a> why [you choose not to get vaccinated]," said Towns.

The Brooklyn Nets are trying to win a championship and with Kyrie Irving out of the lineup, <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kevin-durant-reacts-to-the-ongoing-kyrie-irving-situation-news.141009.html" target="_blank">KD is now going to have to carry the load alongside James Harden</a>. It should make for a very interesting dynamic, especially as the Nets look to fix up their point guard situation which is in a very bad place right now. Regardless, Durant has always been one of those players who likes to engage on social media, and he is well aware of the hot takes that are circulating prior to the season. In fact, KD took to Twitter tonight where he acknowledged that things are starting to get out of control. Sarah Stier/Getty Images"Season bouta start, I see shitty hoop takes everywhere," Durant said. Bad takes on the cusp of an NBA season should never be a surprise. In the preseason, the media tends to overreact to poor-performing teams. Case in point, the Lakers are 0-6 right now, and some think this is indicative of how the season will go. Needless to say, these are the kinds of takes KD is talking about. With the Kyrie situation going down, KD will probably have to deal with a lot of hot takes this season, and they won't slow down anytime soon. Hopefully, he's prepared, because it could ramp up very quickly. via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kevin-durant-is-already-seeing-some-atrocious-hot-takes-news.141049.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kevin-durant-is-already-seeing-some-atrocious-hot-takes-news.141049.html</a>224919article, Kevin Durant Is Already Seeing Some Atrocious Hot Takesblogs/10-2021/224919-kevin-durant-is-alr-s.jpg1Jeannie Mai Details Sexual Abuse That Made Her Question Motherhoodhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jeannie-mai-details-sexual-abuse-that-made-her-question-motherhood-newsfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-jeannie-mai-details-sexual-abuse-that-made-her-question-moth/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-jeannie-mai-details-sexual-abuse-that-made-her-question-moth/#commentsFri, 15 Oct 2021 19:20 GMT Over the years, Jeannie Mai has expressed that she wasn't interested in having children.

This came as a surprise for those that have been keeping up with Jeannie, and now, she has come forward with an emotional explanation about why she previously avoided growing her family. In an episode of her Hello Hunnay YouTube series, Jeannie tearfully shared her story of abuse and not wanting to bring a child into a world where she could not protect them from the potential harms that come with life. "If you took every penny I had and everything I loved and bet that <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jeezy-and-jeannie-mai-expecting-their-first-child-news.139524.html" target="_blank">I would be pregnant</a>, I would absolutely bet against myself," she said.&nbsp; "As a child, when you are taken from things that<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jeannie-mai-explains-why-she-threw-vows-into-pool-after-marrying-jeezy-news.129917.html" target="_blank"> feel good </a>and whole and safe, it's hard to see anything being trustworthy moving forward," she said. "I realized that the reason why I didn't want to have kids is because that feeling when I was a kid was so real and so damaging to the point that I'm forty-two today still dealing with trust issues." "It still scares me on whether or not I can keep a kid safe from someone else who might hurt them," she said. "It scares me if my child will be in a situation and not be able to tell me or if I'm not going to be there to help them. something can happen." She credits her relationship and love for Jeezy as being instrumental in changing her perspective.

Despite this, some of the circumstances around his discontent still remain a bit murky. Today, however, some of those details got out thanks to an in-depth report from the likes of Ramona Shelburne of ESPN. In the report,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/ben-simmons-and-sixers-inching-towards-temporary-reconciliation-news.140792.html" target="_blank">we got some unique details on what Simmons has been up to,</a> as well as his mentality when it comes to requesting a trade from the Sixers. In her article, it was revealed that back in August, Simmons sat down with the Sixers executives at Rich Paul's home, and told them exactly what he thought about the ordeal. As Simmons noted, he believes that it is time for him to go somewhere else and that he felt like the Sixers aren't a team that lets him make mistakes. Simmons didn't think he was treated as fairly as other players his age, and it's why he wants a new home. Tim Nwachukwu/Getty ImagesPer Shelburne: &ldquo;'I appreciate you guys coming out here,' Simmons said, according to ESPN&rsquo;s sources who were at the meeting. 'I understand how you feel. But I feel how I feel. And it&rsquo;s just time for a change.'" The Sixers felt as though they could remedy the situation, although, at this point, Simmons is holding firm on his position. After all, the fans don't really want him anymore, and it would be a hostile environment for him to play in. Stay tuned to HNHH as we continue to bring you updates on Simmons' status heading into this season. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://ssl.ulximg.com/public/userfiles/2021/10/15/GettyImages-1324606328%20%281%29.jpg" title="" /></div> Tim Nwachukwu/Getty Images[<a href="https://www.espn.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/32401328/ben-simmons-philadelphia-76ers-evolution-offseason-most-complex-saga" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/ben-simmons-had-a-surprising-message-for-the-sixers-back-in-august-news.141047.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/ben-simmons-had-a-surprising-message-for-the-sixers-back-in-august-news.141047.html</a>224914article, Ben Simmons Had A Surprising Message For The Sixers Back In Augustblogs/10-2021/224914-ben-simmons-had-sur-s.jpg1Eve & Maximillion Cooper Announce They're Expecting First Child Togetherhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/eve-and-maximillion-cooper-announce-theyre-expecting-first-child-togethfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-eve-maximillion-cooper-announce-theyre-expecting-first-child/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-eve-maximillion-cooper-announce-theyre-expecting-first-child/#commentsFri, 15 Oct 2021 18:58 GMT Congratulatory messages have been pouring in for Eve after she made a huge announcement on social media.

When LeBron James and Chris Bosh teamed up with Wade in Miami, the Heat were known as the Big 3, and their most obvious rivals were the Boston Celtics who had Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo. For years, there has been a lot of trash talk between these parties,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kevin-garnett-still-hates-ray-allen-news.137962.html" target="_blank">especially as it pertains to Kevin Garnett, who still hasn't forgiven Allen for joining the Heat.</a> While making an appearance on the&nbsp;Old Man &amp; The Three podcast with JJ Redick, Union got to speak at length about the Heat and Celtics rivalry, where she did not hold back. As she explains in the interview, the Celtics had a superteam first, and that it didn't help them in the long run, as their fans and cheerleaders didn't even care about the team towards the end.&nbsp; Theo Wargo/Getty Images&ldquo;I was here for all of that s&mdash;,&rdquo; Union said per Heat Nation. &ldquo;But I was also here for when KG (Garnett) and Paul and [Rajon] Rondo and Ray [Allen] all came together, even though they don&rsquo;t want to admit it that they kicked that b&mdash;- off. There&rsquo;s been superteams before. They just didn&rsquo;t, they didn&rsquo;t have, it wasn&rsquo;t in this era with this platform and with social media and sports talk radio 24/7.&nbsp;It&rsquo;s different, and how you look at it, it&rsquo;s different. And the whole, &lsquo;Built, not bought,&rsquo; whatever. Boring is what it says to me. Okay, you built it. Did anyone come? No, your fans are leaving at f&mdash;&mdash; halftime. Cheerleaders can&rsquo;t be bothered.&rdquo; Union's comments might not ring true for most NBA fans as the Heat were notorious for having fans who showed up late, left early, and couldn't be bothered to support the team. Meanwhile,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kyrie-irving-says-celtics-fans-are-treating-people-like-theyre-in-a-human-zoo-news.133013.html" target="_blank">Celtics fans are pretty hardcore about their team, for better or for worse.</a> Regardless, the Heat vs Celtics animosity still runs deep, to this day.

The rapper's ex-girlfriend, Camaryn Swanson,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tyga-cooperating-with-police-after-being-accused-of-assaulting-ex-gf-report-news.140826.html" target="_blank">reportedly pressed charges</a> and alleged that Tyga physically assaulted her. Earlier this week, Swanson spoke about the case on her Instagram Story and revealed why she believed it was&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/camaryn-swanson-reveals-why-she-pressed-charges-against-tyga-news.140926.html" target="_blank">necessary to come forward.</a> "Unfortunately 'someone' released a false narrative to TMZ painting me out to be somebody I am not, accusing me of things that did not happen and that I did not do," Swanson wrote enigmatically. "With that being said I took matters into my own hands and posted the TRUTH with proof tagging tmz AFTER they released the fake news." Bryan Steffy / Stringer / Getty ImagesThere were also reports that Tyga&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tyga-turns-himself-in-to-police-over-domestic-abuse-allegations-report-news.140851.html" target="_blank">turned himself in to authorities</a> after an alleged arrest warrant was issued, but he now claims that was not the case "I want everyone to know that the allegations against me are false," he wrote on Instagram. "I was not arrested. I took myself into the police station and cooperated.<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/soulja-boy-mocks-tyga-for-domestic-violence-charge-news.140884.html" target="_blank"> I have not been charged </a>with any crime." It is unclear what the status of this case is, but Tyga denies being hit with charges regarding the incident. Meanwhile, photos of Swanson's black eye have circulated on the internet and she insists that Tyga is responsible. via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tyga-breaks-silence-on-domestic-abuse-allegations-news.141044.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tyga-breaks-silence-on-domestic-abuse-allegations-news.141044.html</a>224910article, Tyga Breaks Silence On Domestic Abuse Allegationsblogs/10-2021/224910-tyga-breaks-silence-s.jpg1Billie Eilish x Air Jordan 15 Collab To Get Another Release: Detailshttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/billie-eilish-x-air-jordan-15-collab-to-get-another-release-details-newfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-billie-eilish-x-air-jordan-15-collab-get-another-release/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-billie-eilish-x-air-jordan-15-collab-get-another-release/#commentsFri, 15 Oct 2021 18:03 GMT Billie Eilish continues to be one of the biggest pop stars in the world, and as a result, she has been able to enjoy some success with other brands. The singer recently teamed up with Jumpman where she dropped a pair of <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/billie-eilish-x-air-jordan-15-gets-official-images-release-details-news.139302.html" target="_blank">Air Jordan 1 KOs and even an Air Jordan 15</a>. The Jordan 15 was originally released on her website, but it has yet to make its way to the SNKRS App. Now, that is about to change. As you can see in the images below, this shoe takes on the iconic Air Jordan 15 shape, all while covered in a neutral beige and grey tone. This look is extremely basic at its core, however, it still looks pretty good overall. The Jordan 15 might not be beloved like some other models, but you can't deny that these look pretty great. For those of you out there who want to grab these, they will be available as of next Friday, October 22nd for a price of $225 USD. Let us know what you think of them, in the comments section below, and stay tuned to HNHH for all of the latest updates from the sneaker world.

He has a stranglehold on streetwear and music right now, so it should be no surprise that he has <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/ranking-travis-scotts-air-jordan-collaborations-news.140589.html" target="_blank">his very own collaboration with the likes of Nike and Jordan Brand</a>. One of his best shoes was the Air Jordan 1 Low, which came in a black and brown offering. Recently, the shoe got another collaboration with Fragment, and now, it seems like the&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/travis-scott-x-air-jordan-1-low-official-images-revealed-news.86108.html" target="_blank">Travis Scott x Jordan 1 Low will be back</a> again in 2022. According to Instagram account @mr_unloved1s, the shoe is going to drop next year in a brown and white offering that has some beige on the backward swoosh. It has been noted that this shoe has been given the nickname "Reverse" as it is meant to be a reference to the first Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low which dropped back in 2019. At this point, there is no release date attached to these, so keep it locked to HNHH as we will be sure to bring you all of the latest updates from the sneaker world.

One year later, the Kodak Black-affiliated rapper is still working hard to achieve his goals as an artist and an entrepreneur, and during his recent appearance in the latest season of&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jackboy-on-florida-rap-influences-leaving-sniper-gang-for-his-own-label-and-more-news.140663.html" target="_blank">HNHH's&nbsp;On The Come Up</a>, Jackboy discussed everything from&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jackboy-details-the-nba-youngboy-toilet-paper-situation-news.140913.html" target="_blank">his social media antics</a> to his plans for <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jackboy-explains-why-he-chose-to-buy-his-mom-a-house-instead-of-a-richard-mille-news.140962.html" target="_blank">building generational wealth</a>. At one point in his&nbsp;On The Come Up interview, the Haitian artist also offered praise&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kodak-black-shares-pic-with-xxxtentacion-and-ynw-mellys-mothers-news.134203.html" target="_blank">to XXXTentacion and YNW Melly</a> for bringing their unique&nbsp;artistry to <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/trick-daddy-and-trina-radio-show-gets-canceled-report-news.139977.html" target="_blank">Florida's Hip-Hop scene</a>. "People like Melly, people like X, they real different from regular Florida artists you see everyday," Jackboy said. "People like X is the reason I want to switch up my flow. We got a whole other sound in Florida that motherfuckers not tapping into. Nah, let&rsquo;s get this bag. X is really the one that influenced a lot of my new sound. You from where I'm from, and you sound like this? You know what&mdash;let me get comfortable in there too, and open up and try more new things."&nbsp; <strong>Image provided by the artist &amp; label - photo by Lestyn Park</strong>After giving them their props,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/jackboy-unleashes-the-sequel-to-his-self-titled-album-jackboy-2-new-mixtape.121872.html" target="_blank">the Jackboy 2 artist</a>&nbsp;went on to detail his personal relationships with the two controversial Florida rappers. When discussing his relationship <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/podcast-about-ynw-mellys-first-degree-murder-charges-coming-to-spotify-news.139768.html" target="_blank">with YNW Melly</a>, Jackboy&nbsp;said, "Our relationship, it&rsquo;s pretty much been through the phone because when he was on the streets, I was locked up and talked to him. Then he blew up, and [when] I came home, he was locked up. It was always through the phone, but I rock with him." Jackboy also confirmed that he has&nbsp;turned in a feature for&nbsp;one of YNW Melly's&nbsp;songs, but unfortunately, Jackboy reveals that he never&nbsp;collaborated <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/xxxtentacion-and-lil-peep-sued-over-2018-song-falling-down-news.139601.html" target="_blank">with XXXTentacion</a>. According to the 1804 Records founder, XXXTentacion was one of the only people to offer&nbsp;Jackboy support while he was in jail, and&nbsp;but due to his&nbsp;drug use when he was released from prison, he&nbsp;always passed up the opportunity to get into the&nbsp;studio with <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/xxxtentacions-sad-goes-diamond-news.137786.html" target="_blank">the late&nbsp;17 and&nbsp;? artist</a>. See what he had to say about his relationship with XXXTentacion below. I rock with X heavy because every single time we talked &mdash; and I talked to him a couple times, a lot &mdash; he reached out to me. Throughout that whole time, he was already a superstar. He was already bigger than me, so for you to come back and just steady do that, I super respect it. I'm in jail. He&rsquo;s hitting me up, &ldquo;Aye, bro. What&rsquo;s your inmate number so I can send you money?&rdquo; Then he&rsquo;s sending me the money. Stuff like that was like damn, what the hell? I met him, and then he was like, &ldquo;Hey man, come to the studio.&rdquo; He&rsquo;s trying to force me to get in the studio, and I'm just like, &ldquo;Nah, man, I'm on lean&rdquo;&mdash; stupid! I'm not understanding what it was because I was thinking we&rsquo;re here forever. So I'm not understanding that this shit important. Even though we didn't get the song, I still respect [him] super heavy like we got it, like we was in there. This man was hitting me up. He did not have to. I wasn't really trying to be a rapper at that time, and he seen it, so he was trying to be like, &ldquo;Aye man.&rdquo; He would stay stuff, but I was like, &ldquo;Nah!&rdquo; At the time, the music wasn&rsquo;t putting no money in my pocket, so it [didn&rsquo;t feel] worth it, like &ldquo;Whatever, I&rsquo;ll do it later. I&rsquo;ll get to it.&rdquo; I always had that mentality, but really, it's like we gotta be getting to it right now. However, Jackboy does insist that if he were to do a posthumous collaboration with his late friend, he would ensure&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/xxxtentacion-and-his-son-gekyume-look-identical-in-new-photos-news.138417.html" target="_blank">XXXTentacion's son Gekyume</a> would receive 100% of the profits from it. "I ain&rsquo;t get to the studio with him, but I sent him shit. And I think I could still get a X song, but I&rsquo;m not really pressed for it," Jackboy explained. "I fuck with him, and it&rsquo;s deeper than that. I wouldn't even want it certain ways. Say right now, if we had a song, if we were to record it&mdash; I would&rsquo;ve tried to find a way for everything to go to his son or some sh*t, every dime. Then I would try to find a way to do it instead of just, &ldquo;Aight, let me drop this, and juice up real fast!&rdquo; Nah. I would have to finesse it another way so it could make sense. I respect [him]."

This shoe was a brand new variation of the&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/adidas-yeezy-boost-350-v2-surfaces-in-bizarre-cmpct-variation-news.140814.html" target="_blank">Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 called "CMPCT."</a> What made this shoe so interesting is the fact that it takes the classic midsole of the 350 V2 and slaps on a sock upper that is unlike anything we have seen from Yeezy thus far. The very first colorway is meant to be blue and brown, but now, it appears&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/adidas-yeezy-foam-runner-receives-red-october-makeover-news.105498.html" target="_blank">the shoe is getting another variant with some "Red October" vibes.</a> In the Instagram post below, you can find a shoe that is being dubbed "Slate Red," however, we're sure diehard Kanye fans will oppose the nomenclature. As you can see, the shoe is covered in red tones, and it is a monochromatic vibe that fits the actual silhouette quite well. Yeezy has always been innovative with its shoes, and this is yet another example of that.&nbsp; As for the release date, you can expect these to come out early in 2022, although an exact time frame has yet to be unveiled. Let us know what you think of these kicks, in the comments below, and stay tuned to HNHH for all of the latest updates from the world of sneakers.

The song has been incredibly well received so far, and even earned her some love from Drake. &ldquo;One of my best friends in the world just dropped a single,&rdquo; Drake wrote on his story, along with a stunning portrait of the singer. &ldquo;@adele WOIIIIIIII.&rdquo; @champagnepapi/InstagramSome may be surprised by the unlikely BFFs, but if you remember back to Drizzy&rsquo;s birthday party in 2019, he included a sweet snapshot with Adele in his photo dump, showing the two friends laughing hysterically while celebrating the big day.&nbsp; Just days before she dropped &ldquo;Easy On Me,&rdquo; Adele confirmed the long-swirling rumours that she&rsquo;s got an album on the way. On Wednesday, the 33-year-old <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/adele-shares-30-album-cover-release-date-and-letter-to-fans-news.140901.html" target="_blank">revealed that her next album will be titled&nbsp;30</a> (she always names her projects after the age she was when she began working on them) and is set to release on November 19th. Like so many other stars, the &ldquo;Chasing Pavements&rdquo; singer enjoys staying out of the spotlight while working on her music, but recently she&rsquo;s emerged on social media again. During an Instagram Live session, Adele played an early sneak preview of her new single, and made waves across Twitter with her&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/twitter-hilariously-reacts-to-a-fan-asking-adele-about-her-body-count-on-ig-live-news.140761.html" target="_blank">comedic response to a fan inquiring about her body count</a>. &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve learned a lot of blistering truths about myself along the way. I&rsquo;ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones,&rdquo; she wrote along with her album announcement. &ldquo;Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I&rsquo;ve finally found my feeling again.

It was a gnarly injury and just a day after it took place,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/russell-wilson-could-miss-up-to-eight-weeks-details-news.140670.html" target="_blank">it was revealed that Wilson would have to miss about 6-8 weeks.</a> Since that time, the team has put its trust in Geno Smith, which is not something I thought I would be typing in 2021. It is clear that the Seahawks are going to need a full team effort to pull off some wins here, especially with Wilson gone. In fact, today, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told reporters that Wilson was going on the injured reserve. Steph Chambers/Getty ImagesBased on a report from Field Yates of ESPN, Wilson will only be able to return by Week 10, although there is no guarantee that he will be ready to go by that time. It is all dependent on how Wilson feels and whether or not he believes his finger is ready to go.&nbsp; As for the Seahawks' QB situation, if Smith starts to lose games, then the franchise could find themselves making some rash decisions for a temporary solution.

In the end, Fury came away with an <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tyson-fury-defeats-deontay-wilder-with-11th-round-tko-news.140729.html" target="_blank">11th round knockout that was heard around the world</a>. After the fight, Wilder had no interest in congratulating Fury, which is something that the winner found to be in bad taste. Regardless, the two have always had bad blood, so this shouldn't have come as much of a surprise. This past week, it was revealed that Wilder actually suffered a broken hand in his fight. He will now have to wait until next summer to get back in the ring, which is certainly going to be a highly-anticipated event. In the meantime, Wilder is changing his tune on Fury, as he recently took to IG with some kind words for the fighter, as well as an update on his current midset. Al Bello/Getty ImagesPer Wilder: "Wow, what a hell of a night! I would like to first and foremost thank God for allowing me to give the world another part of me that&rsquo;s driven with passion and determination. I would like to thank my team and my fans for sticking by my side through this long process. I would be lying if I said that I wasn&rsquo;t disappointed in the outcome but after reflecting on my journey, I now see that what God wanted me to experience is far greater than what I expected to happen. We didn&rsquo;t get the win but a wise man once said the victories are within the lessons. I&rsquo;ve learned that sometimes you have to lose to win. Although, I wanted the win I enjoyed seeing the fans win even more. Hopefully, I proved that I am a true Warrior and a true King in this sport. Hopefully, WE proved that no matter how hard you get hit with trials and tribulations you can always pick yourself up to live and fight again for what you believe in. Last but not least I would like to congratulate&nbsp;<a href="https://www.instagram.com/gypsyking101/" target="_blank">@gypsyking101</a>&nbsp;for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever." The Wilder vs. Fury trilogy has been special to watch over these last few years, and there is no doubt that both fighters can continue to thrive, regardless of what's happened. Fury is probably looking at a unification fight for the Heavyweight titles, while Wilder can build his confidence back up with some unique fights. Perhaps a bout against Anthony Joshua could be in his future. Let us know who you think Wilder should fight next, in the comments section below.

The Netflix original has been&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/video-shows-dave-chappelle-completely-unbothered-by-backlash-over-dababy-comments-news.140571.html" target="_blank">causing a stir for quite some time now</a>, after viewers called out the comedian for his jokes on sensitive topics. &ldquo;We have let go of an employee for sharing confidential, commercially sensitive information outside the company,&rdquo; a spokesperson said. &ldquo;We understand this employee may have been motivated by disappointment and hurt with Netflix, but maintaining a culture of trust and transparency is core to our company.&rdquo; The employee reportedly revealed to&nbsp;Bloomberg that Netflix spent a whopping $24.1 on Chappelle&rsquo;s latest special and $23.6 million on his 2019 show, Sticks &amp; Stones&nbsp;&ndash; even more than the $21.4 million they spent on&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/squid-games-breaks-massive-record-on-netflix-news.140914.html" target="_blank">Squid Game, which is their new most successful release</a> to date. The Bloomberg&nbsp;report also shared that&nbsp;Sticks &amp; Stones reportedly generated an &ldquo;impact value&rdquo; of $19.4 million, meaning production costs were higher than what Chappelle&rsquo;s special made, as determined by Netflix. According to&nbsp;Complex, the recently fired employee was also the leader of the company&rsquo;s trans employee resource group, and was&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/trans-netflix-workers-planning-a-walkout-in-response-to-dave-chappelles-the-closer-news.140924.html" target="_blank">planning an internal walkout on October 20th</a> after the company refused to remove Chappelle&rsquo;s jokes at the expense of the LGBTQ+ community from&nbsp;The Closer. &ldquo;Several of you have also asked where we draw the line on hate.&nbsp;We don&rsquo;t allow titles Netflix that are designed to incite hate or violence, and we don&rsquo;t believe The Closer crosses that line,&rdquo;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/netflix-ceo-ted-sarandos-stands-up-for-dave-chappelle-amid-ongoing-comedy-special-drama-news.140817.html" target="_blank">Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos said, earlier this week</a>. &ldquo;I recognize, however, that distinguishing between commentary and harm is hard, especially with stand-up comedy which exists to push boundaries. Some people find the art of stand-up to be mean-spirited but our members enjoy it, and it&rsquo;s an important part of our content offering.&rdquo; Elsewhere, Chappelle has been seemingly unbothered by all the drama, and&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/dave-chappelle-says-he-loves-being-canceled-after-receiving-standing-ovation-in-la-news.140651.html" target="_blank">even said that he &ldquo;loves being cancelled.&rdquo;</a> [<a href="https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/business/digital/netflix-fires-employee-for-leaking-confidential-information-on-chappelle-special-1235032108/" target="_blank">Via</a>] [<a href="https://www.complex.com/pop-culture/netflix-fires-employee-leaked-financial-information-dave-chapelle-special" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/netflix-employee-fired-for-leaking-financial-information-about-dave-chappelle-s-comedy-special-news.141035.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/netflix-employee-fired-for-leaking-financial-information-about-dave-chappelle-s-comedy-special-news.141035.html</a>224897article, Netflix Employee Fired For Leaking Financial Information About Dave Chappelle's Comedy Specbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Grafh Releases Posthumous DJ Shay Album, "Stop Calling Art Content"https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/grafh-releases-posthumous-dj-shay-album-stop-calling-art-content-new-mifeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-grafh-releases-posthumous-dj-shay-album-stop-calling-art-con/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-grafh-releases-posthumous-dj-shay-album-stop-calling-art-con/#commentsFri, 15 Oct 2021 15:26 GMT Grafh and the late DJ Shay begin&nbsp;Stop Calling Art Content with a powerful message &ndash; &ldquo;when it comes to work created out of passion or artistic sensibility, calling it &lsquo;content&rsquo; doesn&rsquo;t do it justice. When you create art with passion, that&rsquo;s probably the purest form of yourself that you can offer.&rdquo; The &ldquo;Intro&rdquo; track continues, saying, &ldquo;Calling it &lsquo;content&rsquo; just devalues that. Content kills art. Passion and content doesn&rsquo;t live in the same house. Culture and content have nothing in common. Content has no soul. Content is all business. True art has always been much more than just content, and it always will be.&rdquo; The album comes in at just under 45 minutes, and includes features from Benny the Butcher on &ldquo;Very Different,&rdquo; Heem and Rick Hyde on &ldquo;Promise,&rdquo; and Chyi the Prynce and 3d Na&rsquo;tee on &ldquo;Slums.&rdquo; Other collaborators include Bun B, Styles P, and Elcamino on &ldquo;From the Start,&rdquo; and Sheek Louch and Ransom on &ldquo;Valid.&rdquo; The album&rsquo;s other eight tracks are taken care of by DJ Shay and Grafh. Earlier this afternoon, Grafh took to Instagram to share that&nbsp;Stop Calling Art Content&nbsp;is sitting at #17 on Apple Music. &ldquo;No radio or none of that, just street shxt &amp; bars,&rdquo; the 39-year-old captioned his post. <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/westside-gunn-mourns-the-death-of-griseldas-dj-shay-news.116322.html" target="_blank">DJ Shay passed away in August of 2020</a>.

More recently, Drake invested in a company that might make his fried chicken investment even more lucrative.&nbsp; Investing in Bullrider, a Toronto-based cannabis brand, co-owned by&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/noah-40-shebib-shares-appalling-marvins-room-story-involving-michael-jackson-news.125164.html" target="_blank">Drake's producer 40,</a> the&nbsp;Certified Lover Boy&nbsp;rapper has made another foray into the cannabis space. After launching&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/drake-steps-into-the-cannabis-industry-with-more-life-growth-co-news.95100.html" target="_blank">More Life Growth Co. back in 2019,</a> it was only a matter of time until Drake found his way back to the cannabis industry and what better company to invest in than one that 40 co-owns? The two have made an endless amount of&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/noah-40-shebib-gives-a-behind-the-scenes-tour-of-ovo-studios-news.55546.html" target="_blank">magic in the studio,</a> so it's only natural they try to make more magic outside of it.&nbsp; Drake, joining Bullrider as an investor, partner and strategic advisor, will "play a role in advising and helping the brand develop its strategy for the North American market," according to the company. The size of Drake's investment was not revealed but just nine days ahead of his 35th birthday, the Toronto rapper says this move is entirely based on his trust in 40.&nbsp; "I&rsquo;ve always viewed 40 as the expert when it comes to cannabis so I&rsquo;m very excited to invest, partner,&nbsp;and contribute to setting a new standard for a premium cannabis experience," Drake said in a statement.&nbsp; 40, who has publicly battled multiple sclerosis, says the Bullrider name is derived from the "Afghani Bullrider" cannabis strain, which he credits with helping manage his MS symptoms.&nbsp; "My involvement with Bullrider stems from the urge to help consumers access high-grade strains with the same recreational therapeutic benefits that I&rsquo;ve been able to enjoy. It&rsquo;s not just another cannabis brand, Bullrider has a deep reverence for quality cannabis and its medicinal properties which I&rsquo;ve always been extremely passionate about," the Grammy-winning producer said.&nbsp; View this post on Instagram<a href="https://www.instagram.com/reel/CUGhPuugrD9/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Noah &ldquo;40&rdquo; Shebib (@ovo40)</a> The Bullrider flagship store is set to open later this month in Brampton, Ontario.

The new record arrives alongside a new music video, which fans are leaving comments on, reflecting on what happened last month and wishing Spotem well in his recovery.

With many inspirational lines about finding the courage to fight and flying high above all the negativity life has to offer, "If It's To Be" is a change of pace for Uchis, but is a glowing example of her range and ability to mold her voice for any purpose.&nbsp; <strong>Quotable Lyrics </strong>Do the Gods seek Greater Gods that hear them when they pray?

The rumour&rsquo;s stem from a dossier, released by a British spy named Christopher Steele. Reportedly, the dossier contained the infamous &ldquo;pee tape,&rdquo; or a video of Trump instructing two prostitutes to urinate on a bed at the&nbsp;Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Moscow, where Barack Obama had previously slept. According to&nbsp;Salon, former FBI director James revealed in his book that the 75-year-old had an obsession with removing the rumour from national discourse as soon as possible. &ldquo;I'm a germaphobe,&rdquo; he once told Comey. &ldquo;There's no way I would let people pee on each other around me. No way.&rdquo; Back in 2018,&nbsp;ABC News pressed the FBI alum for more details. He responded, &ldquo;I&nbsp;honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don't know whether the current President of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013.&nbsp;It's possible, but I don't know.&rdquo; Donald Trump has been making his way back into the news as of late. The New York native has been&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/donald-trump-asks-judge-to-force-twitter-to-give-his-account-back-news.140389.html" target="_blank">attempting to get his Twitter account reinstated</a>, and has been receiving backlash for&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/donald-trump-faces-backlash-after-making-problematic-comments-about-haitian-immigrants-news.140645.html" target="_blank">controversial comments he made about Haiti</a> during an interview with&nbsp;Fox News.

While she was one of the loudest celebrity voices on&nbsp;several important topics, the "WAP" rapper has seemingly decided to move away from politics, explaining to her fans on Thursday night why she hasn't been sharing her thoughts on the state of the country lately. When a fan remarked that&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/cardi-b-on-why-biden-won-trump-supporters-getting-out-of-line-news.120922.html" target="_blank">Cardi used to always talk about politics</a> and asked her why she's been so quiet as of late, the rapper actually responded and said that she's fed up with <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/cardi-b-calls-out-blue-check-republicans-who-are-silent-about-police-brutality-news.130244.html" target="_blank">all the&nbsp;conservatives in her replies speaking nonsense every time she opens her mouth</a>. "I was tired of getting bullied by the republicans and also getting bashed by the same people I was standing up for," she said. Francois Durand/Getty ImagesThen, when somebody insulted the rapper and said she sounds "slow" when she talks, Cardi clapped back and said, "It was the only way YOU would of understand me." Aside from her move away from politics, Cardi also revealed that she hasn't&nbsp;been feeling too well, but she informed fans that she doesn't have COVID-19.&nbsp; "What&rsquo;s a very good booster shot I should take for a cold? I feel terrible and I want to be wit my babies already," she wrote on Friday morning. "I don&rsquo;t have covid just a cold." <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://ssl.ulximg.com/public/userfiles/2021/10/15/GettyImages-1203232615.jpg" title="" /></div> Dia Dipasupil/Getty ImagesHopefully, Cardi feels better soon.

Over three years after the massacre, it&rsquo;s been reported that the gunman, Nikolas Cruz, will plead guilty. The 23-year-old has been charged with 17 counts of first-degree murder (killing 14 students and three staff members), and in a courtroom on Friday, Cruz&rsquo;s attorney announced that he will plead guilty to all charges. Complex reports that the former Marjory Stoneman Douglas student is expected to be sentenced to life in prison without parole, although his fate could be as severe as the death penalty. Cruz also pleads guilty to&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/parkland-shooter-nikolas-cruz-attacks-jail-officer-in-tussle-over-stun-gun-news.64546.html" target="_blank">attacking a guard during his time behind bars</a>, back in November of 2018. The criminal allegedly wrestled the officer to the ground, exchanged punches with him, and attempted to steal his taser. A separate trial will take place for that incident, and Cruz could face an additional 15 years for it. CNN&nbsp;reports that Cruz&rsquo;s legal team offered a guilty plea long ago, but only if the death penalty would be taken off the table. Prosecutors rejected that, making it abundantly clear that they were seeking the death penalty. Earlier this week, the Broward State Attorneys Office shared that &ldquo;there have been no plea negotiations with the prosecution,&rdquo; and that if the 23-year-old does plead guilty, &ldquo;there would still be a penalty phase.&rdquo; Before the shooting, Cruz was expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after a laundry list of incidents occurred. While he attended, he was prohibited from wearing a backpack out of fear that he might conceal a weapon.&nbsp; If you&rsquo;re seeking more info on the Parkland tragedy, check out&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/prosecutors-release-videos-made-by-parkland-school-shooter-nikolas-cruz-news.51487.html" target="_blank">our story detailing Cruz&rsquo;s motives for his attack</a>.

Explaining that he was in New Mexico shooting a movie with Queen Latifah when his phone started blowing up with notifications from his wife, the "How Low" rapper told Ellen the race was on.&nbsp; "I&rsquo;m on set, I&rsquo;m shooting a scene and I look at my phone and I&rsquo;m getting all these missed calls," Luda said. "It&rsquo;s towards the end of the day, and she&rsquo;s like, 'You need to come to Atlanta.' I&rsquo;m like, 'Baby, I&rsquo;m shooting a movie. What are you talking about?' She said, 'The contractions started. (The) doctor says you need to get here.'" Continuing on to explain that all commercial flights from Albuquerque to Atlanta were full, Luda said he had to get his private pilot to fly from the ATL to New Mexico and back in order to be there for the big moment.&nbsp; "So I have to call my pilot.

There are very few quarterbacks in the NFL who are better than Tom Brady right now, which just goes to show that experience is everything when it comes to the QB position. Over the last few months, Brady has made various claims surrounding his longevity. For instance,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/tom-brady-offers-new-insight-on-playing-until-50-news.139314.html" target="_blank">he told Rob Gronkowski that he could play until the age of 50.</a> In a recent interview with Hannah Storm of ESPN, Brady insisted that he could play until the age of 55, although there is simply one thing holding him back from doing so. Mitchell Leff/Getty Images"I really think I can play as long as I want.&nbsp;I really do," Brady said.&nbsp;"I don't think I will, obviously.&nbsp;My physical body won't be the problem.&nbsp;I think it'll just be, I'm just missing too much of life with my family." Brady has been playing professional football for the last 20 years now and it has forced him to miss out on a lot of family time. For many players, this can be a truly sad reality, and it is one that Brady continues to grapple with.

Smith Issues Stern Warning To His Hatershttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/stephen-a-smith-issues-stern-warning-to-his-haters-news.141020.htmlfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-stephen-smith-issues-stern-warning-his-haters/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-stephen-smith-issues-stern-warning-his-haters/#commentsFri, 15 Oct 2021 12:40 GMT Stephen A. Smith is one of the most opinionated men in sports and while Smith is usually on the end of vitriol, he is now getting it from all sides. <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kyrie-irving-trade-and-retirement-rumors-resurface-amid-vaccination-saga-news.140661.html" target="_blank">This is all thanks to his opinions on Kyrie Irving</a>, who has refused to get vaccinated.&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/stephen-a-smith-responds-to-kyrie-irvings-ig-live-statements-on-first-take-news.140968.html" target="_blank">Smith believes Kyrie is an inherently selfish player,</a> and many aren't liking his opinion. The vaccine remains a personal choice, and fans believe that Smith is trying to rip Irving's autonomy away from his. For instance, this is what Smith had to say on&nbsp;First Take yesterday: &ldquo;So you don&rsquo;t have a problem with taking the vaccine? Your position is that you&rsquo;re going to sit up there and compromise the championship aspirations of a Nets organization you signed on to represent. You coaxed&nbsp;Kevin Durant&nbsp;into signing on to represent. You played a role in coaxing&nbsp;James Harden&nbsp;to signing on to represent. You&rsquo;re gonna compromise all of that because you want to give a voice to the voiceless? You asked KD and James Harden to come on board to Brooklyn to establish your own legacy, and then you leave them hanging.&rdquo; Yesterday just so happened to be Stephen A. Smith's birthday, and to celebrate, he was living it up at a club where he was surrounded by guests. Unfortunately, Smith suffered some light harassment as fans chirped him over his Kyrie stance. This forced him to create a Twitter video where he went full Joker. In the clip below, you can see Smith engaging with his detractors, noting that he won't be stepping down anytime soon and that if someone wants to get the smoke, they can watch&nbsp;First Take today. Smith takes a lot of pride in his takes, so it should be no surprise that he is refusing to back down right now. After all, <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kyrie-irving-speaks-on-vaccine-drama-people-are-losing-their-jobs-to-mandates-news.140936.html" target="_blank">the Kyrie saga is one that will continue well into the season</a>, and it would be weak of Smith to take his foot off the gas at this juncture.

While the&nbsp;Folarin rapper sprinkles in political references and gives fans legitimate food for thought, "Down South" is a banger. From the instrumental to the hook to Beezy and Maxo doing their thing, this record is meant to be played loud and proud and get a crowd moving.&nbsp; And with Bun B prowling in the background of a handful of shots, Wale was able to find the perfect Texas environment for a record about moving weight across the southern&nbsp;United States.&nbsp; Following&nbsp;<a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/wale-and-j-coles-poke-it-out-gets-new-music-video-new-video.46715.html" target="_blank">the success of "Poke It Out"</a> which saw Wale and J. Cole going back and forth about women and Instagram angles, "Down South" will get the party jumping and is *hopefully* a sign of what's to come on&nbsp;Folarin 2.&nbsp; Check out the visuals for Wale's "Down South" and let us know what you think in the comments.&nbsp; via: <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/wale-heads-to-the-lone-star-state-for-the-down-south-video-with-yella-beezy-and-maxo-kream-new-video.46732.html" target="_blank">https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/wale-heads-to-the-lone-star-state-for-the-down-south-video-with-yella-beezy-and-maxo-kream-new-video.46732.html</a>224867video, Wale Heads To The Lone Star State For The "Down South" Video With Yella Beezy & Maxo Kreambvc/191/41326-Turtledad-logo---thum.jpg1Steph Curry's Next Signature Shoe Revealedhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/steph-currys-next-signature-shoe-revealed-news.141019.htmlfeatures/blogs/itstheboombap-steph-currys-next-signature-shoe-revealed/Posted by itstheboombap0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/itstheboombap-steph-currys-next-signature-shoe-revealed/#commentsFri, 15 Oct 2021 12:19 GMT <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/steph-curry-marvels-at-lebron-james-longevity-news.140694.html" target="_blank">Steph Curry is one of the best players in the league right now</a>, and when all is said and done, he will be the best shooter the NBA has ever seen. With that being said, it should come as no surprise that he has his very own signature shoe. <a href="https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/steph-currys-under-armour-curry-flow-8-revealed-photos-news.122311.html" target="_blank">His Under Armour models continue to improve</a>, and this season, he will be delivering the Under Armour Curry Flow 9 to the world. This is a sneaker that his fans have been waiting for, and UA certainly isn't going to disappoint. As you can see in these new images below, the shoe is set to debut with a seven-shoe collaboration with Sesame Street. These kicks will pay homage to the show's various characters, and as Curry explained, it's a way to get the kids engaged with sneakers and basketball gear. There are some dope offerings that are on the way, and as you can tell, the silhouette itself is sleek and low to the ground. The very first colorways to drop will be the "Big Game" and "Count It" offerings, which will sell for $160 USD. The release date has been set for November 19th, with pairs reaching stockists and the Under Armour website. Let us know what you think, in the comments below.
