Compton's Femcee Rap Legend by itstheboombap0, 28 May 2023 09:32 GMTYolanda Whittaker, more <a href="" target="_blank">commonly known as Yo-Yo</a>, is an American rapper and actress from Compton, California. However, to deduce her as solely an MC would be an undersell of her talents. She's better defined as an actress, educator, philanthropist, and Grammy-nominated rapper. In February, Yo-Yo even partnered with AspireTV for a new cooking series, Downright Delicious with Yo-Yo. Born on August 1971, she was thrown into a chaotic environment from a young age. However, she also began to take notice of the burgeoning hip-hop scene throughout the area. By the time she was 18 years old, <a href="" target="_blank">Ice Cube</a> had started to take note of her unique flow and straightforward narratives. In fact, Atlantic Records had to wait for Yo-Yo to graduate high school to sign her. The narrative meaning encompassing Yo-Yo's sound was aimed at enhancing women's empowerment. She first appeared as a guest on Ice Cube's 1990 debut album <a href="" target="_blank">AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted</a>, contributing a verse to "It's a Man's World." Cube would return the favor on 1991's "You Can't Play with My Yo-Yo." Narratively, the track entrenches the listener into Yo-Yo's plans around woman power in the male-dominated landscape of West Coast rap. Rapping over a slowed sample of Earth Wind &amp; Fire's "Devotion," the Compton classic sees Yo-Yo rightfully hype herself up alongside Ice Cube. She told ABC News, "The song has a lot of femininity, adult femininity in it, and it's powerful to me because it's everything that I am." Black Pearl Solidified Yo-Yo's Notoriety NEW YORK, NEW YORK-FEBRUARY 23: Rapper Yo-Yo (aka Yolanda Whitaker) appears in a portrait taken on February 23, 1992 at a Billboard Magazine Grammy Party in New York City. (Photo by Al Pereira/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images) Yo-Yo's debut album, Make Way for the Motherlode, was released in 1991. However, it would take her time to grow into the mother of West Coast rap she's associated with today. "At first, it was just like, 'Wow. Mama, I made it,'" she told HipHopDX. "I'm not asking, 'Can I buy a car?' I'm buying a car. 'I don't have to put up with your stuff, I'm moving out.' But after a while, I would say certain stuff in interviews and didn't know what I was saying, you know? I was so fake. I was trying to be something that I wasn't instead of just allowing it to take." However, her sophomore effort Black Pearl expressed significant artistic and personal growth. Black Pearl solidified her influence in the hip-hop industry. At the time, gangsta rap was inherently focused on the violence and Black plight surrounding impoverished communities. <a href="" target="_blank">Ice Cube, Tupac, and Dr. Dre</a> were all impactfully raging at the world around them. With Black Pearl, listeners resonated with her steadfast focus on uplifting themes, a stark contrast to the negativity that hip-hop heads had become accustomed to. Grounded in hard raps and thudding beats, many regard it as her best project. However, she would release other successful albums such as You Better Ask Somebody, Total Control, and Ebony. She Was In A Relationship With Tupac <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Speaking of Tupac, the two would meet in a recording studio in the 1990s. Continuing to bump into each other while on tour, their relationship would become romantic for a time. Yo-Yo told EURWeb Spotlight, "<a href="" target="_blank">We were in love </a>and we loved each other until the day he died. Pac became like a brother to me. We were just two people on the road who found each other, fell in love with each other. We spent many nights on the road together. He wasn't perfect, nor was he trying to be. He wasn't afraid to talk about his community, about his parents, stuff that people don't what to hear about, stuff people don't want to talk about. People don't want to talk about their truth. That kind of love he had for truth made me love him more." Yo-Yo's Influence On Women's Empowerment Is Beyond Music <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> By 1995, she had begun visualizing a life outside of the scope of hip-hop. Her musical career would take a backseat in favor of her acting career. No longer solely a rapper, Yo-Yo made appearances in the film Panther (1995), the television show New York Undercover (1994), and a recurring role on Martin (1992). In addition, she went back to school to obtain an associate degree in business at Bergen Community College. Reflecting on the experience, she told AARP, "I did not have the skills of business even though I had been in this music business for so long. Going back to school gave me confidence and that was my first step to do something for me." In "You Can't Play with My Yo-Yo," she references the Intelligent Black Woman's Coalition. The mastermind behind the IBWC's core purpose revolves around standing up for Black woman's rights and advocating for an end to gun violence. Her influence lies beyond hip-hop verses, advocating for creative rights. In 1994, she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about whether the government should require rating labels on gangsta rap. Additionally, she's enhanced her love for teaching by founding the Yo-Yo School of Hip-Hop. In essence, Yo-Yo is one of the pioneering influences of West Coast <a href="" target="_blank">hip-hop and feminine empowerment</a>. <a href="" target="_blank">[via]</a> <a href="" target="_blank">[via</a>]<a href="<a" target="_blank">[via]</a> via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271333Features, Music, Original Content, golden era, ice cube, Yo-Yo, Who Is Yo-Yo?

The City Girl always spills plenty of her own gossip of course, but during the latest episode, it didn't take much for her to get <a href="" target="_blank">Summer Walker</a> talking. The mother of three had plenty to discuss, from some of her unique approaches to parenting to her new relationship with Lil Meech. She and the BMF actor seem to be incredibly happy together at this point, though it's still early on in their time spent together. While she had nothing but positive things to say about her new man, Walker also took a moment to acknowledge a noticeable difference in her first baby daddy, London on da Track. He himself has moved on with Jamaican songstress Shenseea, who the <a href="" target="_blank">Still Over It hitmaker</a> happily credited with bringing out the better side in her former frequent collaborator and lover. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Shenseea Dodges Question About London On Da Track Relationship At The VMAs</a></strong> Summer Walker Wishes London on da Track and Shenseea The Best <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> "Shenseea, shout out to you bitch," Walker told Yung Miami and listeners tuning in earlier this week. "After she got in the picture, he started acting right. I was like, 'Thank God, n*gga done moved on.' It was wild in the beginning." The pair spent months publicly feuding while attempting to co-parent their young daughter together. Seeing as Summer's Instagram Story has been filled with sweet selfies of her and Meech lately, rather than rants about London, it's safe to say they've come to a healthier place in their situation. Aside from that, the Atlanta native also discusses her biggest ick in a man, the rumoured "death" of R&amp;B, and her stage anxiety, which has earned her some serious backlash in the past.

We saw this recently with her "Princess Diana (Remix)" collaboration with Ice Spice, but that's not the only verse the Queen of Rap was willing to hand out this spring. This New Music Friday (May 26), she joined Sexyy Red and Tay Keith for "Pound Town 2," which features some of Minaj's most salacious bars in recent memory. After allowing the response to the single to die down, Sexyy Red reposted an adorable message from the mother of one on her Instagram. "Barbz!!! Omggggg!!!! I'm so excited about this dope new collaboration. I ain't get this ratchet in a minute chile!!! ENJOY!!!!!!" Minaj began. "I met with Sexyy Red and found her to be so down to earth and sweet. I couldn't hear myself on this song at first but once I let go and decided to just have fun with a bad b!tch, I ended up LOVING how it came out!" <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">NLE Choppa Recruits Sexyy Red For NSFW "Sl*t Me Out" Remix Video</a></strong> Nicki Minaj and Sexyy Red Celebrate "Pound Town 2" <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by SEXYY RED (@sexyyred)</a> In her own caption, Red wrote back, "Thank you @nickiminaj this made me blush lol.

The rising rap diva cautioned her followers not to believe the gossip online, revealing that the "Moment 4 Life" artist is "sweet and very nurturing." On top of providing her new friend with a fire verse, Minaj apparently also gave her "great advice that [she's going to] remember foreva." Other features we've heard from the Trinidadian so far in 2023 include "Alone" with Kim Petras, "WTF" alongside NBA YoungBoy, and of course, her own "Red Ruby Da Sleeze" single, which she recently shared an <a href="" target="_blank">accompanying music video</a> for.

The father of six linked up with <a href="" target="_blank">Fabolous</a> and the City Girls for the catchy new song, which is sure to be bumping in clubs all across the country over the coming months. Following the track's premiere on New Music Friday (May 26), Sean Combs and his collaborators also unveiled the raunchy music video for it, which finds the Bad Boy founder dancing naked after a wild night of partying. Despite the fact that Miami told The Cut she and Diddy went their separate ways earlier this year, the Caresha Please host has been spending plenty of time with the producer lately. Not only did they attend the Met Gala together, both dressed to the nines in custom designer duds, but on Saturday (May 27), they also stepped out for the Miami Heat game. The pair looked happy to be at the event when the jumbotron caught them sitting courtside, aptly labelling them "Mr. &amp; Mrs. Act Bad." <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Yung Miami Makes Diddy Buy Her Bags Of Chanel In Instagram Skit</a></strong> Yung Miami Joins Diddy for Another Date Night <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by The Neighborhood Talk (@theneighborhoodtalk)</a> Even though the number one girl in his life is now his <a href="" target="_blank">infant daughter</a>, Love Sean Combs, the Florida native still looks happy to be by Diddy's side.

The 21-year-old was taken into custody in connection with a 2022 fatal shooting in the city's North York area. Police reports claim that on October 6, officers responded to a call at 5 Needle Firway around 1:40 PM. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and has since been identified as 28-year-old Osman Bangura. Duvy appeared in court earlier today (May 27), but no further updates are available at this time. Investigating authorities are asking anyone with information to consider coming forward or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously. If the rising star did commit the crime, it would've taken place months after his 12-track, almost featureless debut hit DSPs. At the time, titles like "Clear the Spot," "Shlime Talk," and "Nightmare Z" were helping him make a name for himself amongst the other artists coming up out of the 6ix. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Smiley &amp; Duvy Reflect On Making It On "Topic"</a></strong> Duvy Charged in Osman Bangura's 2022 Death <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">#REPORT</a>: 21-year-old Toronto Rapper "Duvy" charged in 2022 shooting death of Osman Bangura in the Jane &amp; Finch community <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; 6ixBuzzTV (@6ixbuzztv) <a href="" target="_blank">May 27, 2023</a> The only artist to appear on GRASSWAYZ alongside Duvy is Vory, who joined him for the opening track, "Thugz Don't Cry." Speaking with Complex about his album (which is based on his childhood), the former said, "It's is a lot like every other neighborhood. It's dangerous. There's a lot of ups and downs. You see a lot of people change. But if you're not from there, the only thing I would tell you is not to come here. You know what I mean?" Prior to his arrest, the "Barcelona" lyricist had been delivering heat in 2023 as well. He teamed up with Waveroom and SDawg17shit for "Bloody Mary," shared a solo effort, "Ladders," and dropped off the deluxe cut of How Did I End Up Here in between. It remains unclear what the next steps in the ongoing murder investigation are, but the news certainly puts a hold on any big plans the Canadian may have had for the upcoming summer months.

The <a href="" target="_blank">long-term couple</a> celebrated their three-year anniversary earlier this month, and to celebrate, caught a flight to beautiful Dubai together. The social media star was definitely appropriately dressed for the hot weather, posing for photos in an extra cheeky zebra print bikini. She shared a carousel on Instagram on Friday (May 25), showing off her notably slimmer figure from various angles. Followers have taken notice of Woods' weight loss, and some of them have accused her of relying on Ozempic to aid her. Recent posts have been riddled with hateful comments, which is likely why the 25-year-old opted to limit replies to this one. "Nothing but hard work. Gotta love a natural body," one response that made the cut reads. Another comes from Jordyn's boyfriend, who revealed he was the one responsible for capturing her beauty on camera. "I snapped on these photos," the NBA player wrote. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Jordyn Woods' Weight Loss Has Social Media Speculating She Used Ozempic</a></strong> Jordyn Woods is Feeling Herself <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by HEIR JORDYN (@jordynwoods)</a> Elsewhere in the replies, some have been chastising Woods for her decision to bare so much skin in the Middle East. "Dubai isn't a place known for the display of nakedness!" one of them condemned the reality star. "Not you <a href="" target="_blank">making clothes for the thick girls</a> and going on Ozempic... Bye," another critic wrote for Jordyn to read. No matter what the haters have to say, Jordyn Woods has continued to share stunning content from her trip to Dubai on IG. On Saturday (May 27), she shared another photo dump, this one primarily focused on the beauty of the nature surrounding her. From watching camels to catching the sunset while standing in the endless sand, she's had no shortage of adventures on her anniversary getaway with her basketball beau.

Back then is when he was <a href="" target="_blank">sentenced to seven years</a> behind bars. The rapper was booked on federal charges of Possession of an Unregistered Firearm, Aggravated Identity Theft, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Ammunition, as XXL reports. On top of serving time, 9lokk will also be required to live under supervised release and drug treatment for an additional three years and pay $10,416 in restitution. It's been relatively quiet on his front since he went away. However, on Thursday (May 25), an Instagram fan account dedicated to the artist lit up with some new photos of him. "But You Know I Hold On Staying Strong I Keep My Helmet High <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="" title="" /></div> ," they wrote in the caption. In a series of photos, we see 9lokk kicking it with fellow inmates, all wearing matching sweatsuits and sneakers. The most obvious difference in the young star's appearance is his hair, which he's begun growing into an afro. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">9lokkNine Sentenced To 7 Years In Prison</a></strong> 9lokkNine Gives an Update From Prison <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by GlokkNine (@9lok9afnf)</a> Aside from that, he's also obviously had time to hit the gym in the last year and a half, as his figure is substantially bulkier than before he went away. Apart from the aforementioned charges, 9lokkNine is also accused of allegedly shooting a gun into an Orlando home in July of 2021. For this, he's facing attempted second-degree murder, as authorities believe he was targeting another rapper at the time. A woman and her children were inside at the time, but thankfully, no one was harmed. At the time, a witness told detectives that the "Crayola artist" wanted to be "the only rapper coming from Orlando. He previously rose to fame with projects like Loyalty Kill Love and Mind of Destruction. While he reportedly landed a deal with Cash Money Records, nothing ultimately came of it before his arrest.

He told The Art Of Dialogue that he remembers meeting and smoking with Biggie, sharing that he "[remembers] him being like, real down to Earth." He also claimed that if the timing were different, he thinks Biggie could have definitely become part of the group. We got an opportunity to meet Big," Macadoshis revealed. "We went tour and we was doing the Thug Life tour. We started out at Jack the Rapper and <a href="" target="_blank">'Pac actually bought Big up to the room</a>. We was staying at the Marriott Marquis and Biggie came up to the room and he was hella cool, bro. I remember him being like, real down to Earth.

"We was moving forward with the Thug Life album at the same time Big was with Puff. So, it was not a conflict of interest, but I don't feel like Puff was tryna let Biggie really come over there and do no Thug Life shit at the time while he was working with him," Macadoshis shared. He added, "He wanted to be the first to break him and bring him out. He only had 'Party and Bullshit' out during that time. So I think that's what really kinda held it up." Macadoshis explained, "It's just the timing was kind of off. I think if <a href="" target="_blank">'Pac and Big</a> would have got together before he got with <a href="" target="_blank">Puffy</a> then it definitely would have been a go. But at the time he was already with Bad Boy so I think that kind of like, put the stall on bro being apart of the group. But it was official though. It was definitely a thing.

On Friday (May 26), Toosii gave us an idea of what we've been missing out on. At the time, he teased an unreleased collaboration between him and the Savage Mode hitmaker. As HipHopDX reports, the 44-second long snippet is more than enough to pique fans' interest. "I'm Mr. Get Out on Feet, 21 / He tried to run through the cut - boy, where you goin'?" Savage raps as the clip shared on Toosii's Instagram Story begins. "Get hawked down the street, 21 / Glock with a switch, hit a n*gga with a left hook, right hook, Muhammad Ali," the UK-born artist continues, comparing himself to one of the world's most well-known boxers. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">21 Savage Songs: His Best Collaborations</a></strong> Toosii Teases Heat with 21 Savage on Instagram 21 Savage goes &quot;Muhammad Ali&quot; on unreleased Toosii collaboration <a href="" target="_blank"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; HipHopDX (@HipHopDX) <a href="" target="_blank">May 27, 2023</a> His impressive bars only continue with, "On God, if you ain't signing no major, you better off not even askin' my fee / Straight up / That shit a couple hundred G's, 21 / He a pussy cat like Garfield, stick make a n*gga do a cartwheel."

The pair came together to remix the former's <a href="" target="_blank">"Favorite Song,"</a> putting together the "Toxic Version" as only Hendrix can. Aside from that, the New York native has also given us <a href="" target="_blank">"Magic Potion"</a> in 2023, following his Boys Don't Cry project last year. He later expanded that with the <a href="" target="_blank">Boys Don't Cry: Men Do</a> edition, featuring five new songs, all of which have only helped to grow the multi-talent's audience.

Cam'ron stated that people bring guns to strip clubs all the time, claiming that if <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Durk</a> brought a gun to their club they would have been fine with it. He suggests that the dancers are just hopping on the bandwagon after Morant's recent controversy. The conversation took place after <a href="" target="_blank">one of the exotic dancers claimed they never received an apology</a>. "I don't foresee an apology [anytime] soon," she told the New York Post, "He's a boy." Another employee of the club also spoke on the incident. "<a href="" target="_blank">He's clearly begging for attention and trying to be a baller</a>," she claims. "He should be banned from all clubs and get his NBA career taken away given our country's current circumstances on gun violence." The club's owner Deborah Dunafon, however, called Morant "exceptionally respectful, and sweet," shortly after the incident took place. <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Is Ja Morant's NBA Career Over?</a></strong> Cam'ron Says Dancers "Want To Kick Ja Morant When He's Down" <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by No Jumper <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> (@nojumper)</a> Following the incident, Morant shared an apology. "I know <a href="" target="_blank">I've disappointed a lot of people</a> who have supported me," his statement begins. "This is a journey and I recognize there is more work to do. My words may not mean much right now, but I take full accountability for my actions. I'm committed to continuing to work on myself." Morant was later <a href="" target="_blank">accused of using AI to generate the apology</a>. Ja Morant was recently suspended from the Memphis Grizzlies following the Instagram Live incident. A wellness check was also conducted on Morant earlier this month, following<a href="" target="_blank"> him sharing several cryptic messages</a> to social media. Fans were concerned about the posts, which included the athlete telling various family members he loves them, and concluded with him saying "bye." <a href="" target="_blank">Police later confirmed that Morant was okay</a> after visiting his home where he claimed to be simply "taking a break from social media." <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Ja Morant Sneakers Sell Out Instantly After Recent De-Listing</a></strong> <a href="" target="_blank">[Via]</a> via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271314News, Pop Culture, guns, Ja Morant, strippers, Cam'ron Defends Ja Morant Tells Strippers: "Y'all B*tbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Starr Gyal Accuses Mellow Rackz Of Stealing, Calls Her "The Worst Prostitute In History": Watch by itstheboombap0, 27 May 2023 22:37 GMTMellow Rackz may appear to be living the dream after <a href="" target="_blank">signing with Young Money</a> a while back, but according to Starr Gyal, looks can be deceiving. The latter starlet took to her Instagram Story this weekend to call the <a href="" target="_blank">"What I Want"</a> hitmaker out, publicly labelling her "the worst prostitute in history." Starr went on to savagely say, "You are a disappointment to our ancestors. How the f*ck you f*cking all these rappers and you ain't even get a song?!" "So you gotta resort to stealing because yo' p*ssy can't get you no... You see my p*ssy get me tings! I ain't gotta steal and look like a motherf*cking clown! Do better!" the social media starlet continued to lash out at Mellow. Elsewhere on her Story, Starr admitted that others advised her against trusting the Florida native, but she instead relied on her "tendency to see the good in people." She included receipts of DMs from others who have apparently been victimized by Rackz, as well as the mother of one's personal message to her after seeing the posts for herself. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Mellow Rackz Talks Mentorship From XXXTentacion's Mom, Relationship With Lil Wayne &amp; Drake, Kodak Black's Help, &amp; More</a></strong> Starr Gyal Shares Her Thoughts on Mellow Rackz <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom)</a> "Lie to me.

Not including money for shopping for her shows. All lies. In total, she got me for $322K. You should see how she left my house." Another person claims to have taken Mellow in when she was homeless, resulting in them also being taken advantage of. "If anyone DM you about her owing money, DM me. I need it for my lawyer. So far over 30 people DM me about her stealing," they urged Starr. While the Punani artist didn't share the entire message she received from her new enemy, it obviously begins with an obscenity. "[Please] tell her she can't afford to DM me!! Stop stealing," Starr Gyal wrote when sharing a screenshot of the drama. Do you believe the allegations arising against Mellow Rackz?

The lawyer shared a statement with Urban Islandz, where he also claims Vybz Kartel is being kept in solitary confinement "lockdown" for up to 23 hours each day. He was convicted of murder in 2014, and sentenced to life in prison. Vybz must serve 35 years before becoming eligible for parole. "The concerns are two-fold," Buchanan begins. "The Department of Corrections does not have adequate facilities to care for persons with ill health while incarcerated as a guest of the state. <a href="" target="_blank">Mr. Palmer</a> is under private treatment at his expense. It is within the knowledge of prison officials that his health is a concern." He continued, "To be placed under a 23-hour lockdown as an appellant given the state of his health is most unfortunate. His medical condition requires access to clean air. Breathing is essential to life that is common sense. It is inhumane punishment [to] execute this form of punishment on Mr Palmer and others given the state of the prisons." <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Vybz Kartel Drops Off "God N' Gun"</a></strong> Lawyer Claims Vybz Kartel Is Living In "Inhumane Conditions" <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by vybzkartelmuzik (@vybzkartelmuzik_)</a> According to <a href="" target="_blank">the artist's</a> parents, he's being punished in this way due to guards finding contraband in his cell block. They claim that Vybz Kartel is the only prisoner being punished, despite other prisoners also being guilty of the offense. "Strangely enough, in addition to the 100s of cell phones found daily at that institution, thousands at lockups across the island. The supt seems to have ill will against Kartel," a representative of the family also claims. An Instagram post made by what claims to be the artist's record label also similarly reads, "Since Tuesday the superintendent at tower street adult correctional centre, Superintendent Campbell has given strict orders to have <a href="" target="_blank">Adidja Palmer</a> aka Vybz Kartel under 23 hours lock down in a poorly ventilated cell despite his failing health at the tower street adult correctional centre as a form of apparent draconian style punishment." <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Vybz Kartel Delivers "3 Little Birds"</a></strong> <a href=";ig_rid=62ffb78f-6720-4c25-88f1-c8b97d0f9f2d" target="_blank">[Via]</a> via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271312Music, News, lawyer, prison, solitary confinement, Vybz Kartel's Lawyer Believes His Life "Is In Danbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Lil Durk Gets Negative Feedback On "Sad Songs" by itstheboombap0, 27 May 2023 21:52 GMT<a href="" target="_blank">Lil Durk</a> has been receiving some negative reviews for his track, "Sad Songs." The song is from his latest album, Almost Healed, which he shared with fans yesterday. The album has been <a href="" target="_blank">projected to be one of the hottest of the year</a>, with the LP already taking over streaming charts. "Lil Durk <a href="" target="_blank">shoulda dropped his album</a> when he was fully healed because this ain't it," wrote one Instagram user. Several other dissatisfied listeners followed suit, claiming that the track's sound did Durk no favors. One user sounded off about their disappointment, writing, "We Don't F*ckin like it straight up." They continued, saying "[Durk's] last album was good every artist won't have a hit album all the time." The user suggests, "he needs to grow more and develop more he already don't care about lyrics which is really undeserving of him in the industry that's why it's garbage." <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Young Thug &amp; Lil Durk Computer Meme: Rappers Have Vowed Not To "Snitch" On Story Behind Photo</a></strong> Some Listeners Think Lil Durk's "Sad Songs" Is A Skip <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom)</a> Lil Durk's fans came to his defense in the comments section, with one writing, "I like it so keep it cute .. if y'all don't got nun nice to say don't respond.

Earlier this week, Durk <a href="" target="_blank">shared more about his healing process</a> with DJ Akademiks during his Off The Record podcast.

Granted, they eventually became trendy thanks to <a href="" target="_blank">MSCHF's Big Red Boots</a>, but now, Ye is proving that he's already on to the next big things with his latest fashion choices. He's been showing off his curves in so-called "yeggings" over the past few weeks alongside his new wife, Bianca Censori. Apart from that, we've also seen the couple in "sock shoes," which are quite the opposite of his winter attire. Earlier in the week, West stepped out with the Australian architect in their questionable outfits, causing photos and reactions to go viral online. For the most part, users have been comparing him to a Roblox character due to the larger-than-life shoulder pads he's been rocking on a regular basis. Regardless of what the haters have to say, however, the <a href="" target="_blank">Yeezy</a> founder continues to keep all eyes on him with his bold looks. On Friday (May 26), he was joined by his two eldest children, North and Saint West, for a trip to the Griffith Park Observatory in Los Angeles. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Kanye West Eviscerated For His Shoulder Pad Outfit</a></strong> Kanye West Makes a Spectacle with His Style Choices Kanye West and Bianca Censori are seen on May 13, 2023, in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Rachpoot/Bauer-Griffin/GC Images) For the outing, the father of four donned a black t-shirt reading "Polizei," or "police" in German on the front, his shoulders obviously emphasized. He stayed comfortable in a pair of sweatpants, once again opting to forego normal footwear in favour of his new favourite sock shoes. Ye's offspring also looked comfortable, wearing Yeezy shirts and shoes with their cloth shorts. It remains unclear what the Atlanta-born lyricist is planning with his daring decisions as of late, though his ex <a href="" target="_blank">Kim Kardashian</a> has made it clear that she thinks his antics will have more of a long-term impact on <a href="" target="_blank">their kids</a> than her past sex tape with Ray-J.

Earlier this year, the young girl joined <a href="" target="_blank">Beyonce</a> on stage in Paris (where she was previously conceived) during the RENAISSANCE World Tour. She appeared during <a href="" target="_blank">"My Power,"</a> and managed to keep up with the gaggle of dancers around her, as well as her mother who was beaming with pride at the sight of Blue Ivy being cheered on by 80,000 fans watching them. No matter how pleased the Carters were with their eldest daughter's work, miserable haters on the internet still found time to criticize her. For the most part, people appear to take issue with Blue being "stiff" while dancing. "Dear Black Women, Blue Ivy is 11 years old performing for the first time in front of 80K people," one Twitter user wrote amid all the negative discourse. "Stop hyper-sexualizing her saying she's too stiff or making inappropriate comments about her body. Y'all are no different than the men. She's a child. Y'all acting like pedos." <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Blue Ivy &amp; Jay-Z Support Beyonce's "RENAISSANCE" World Tour Debut In Sweden</a></strong> Beyonce Brings Out Her Eldest Daughter <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> "There is no need to oversexualize her but she is still stiff. And it's okay for y'all to admit that. I have seen a lot of kids younger than her dance way better," someone attempted to argue in the replies. "You don't understand what age-appropriate means," the OP shot back. In response to another comment, they later wrote, "She dances like most 11-year-old kids. It's beyond weird it's [mostly] women making comments comparing her to a seasoned pro and adult." Even with the hate, Blue looked cool and composed after finishing her iconic show, and will likely make more appearances at her mom's future tour dates. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Beyonce &amp; Blue Ivy Look Like Twins In Throwback Snapshot</a></strong> Twitter Sticks Up for Blue Ivy Keep scrolling to read more social media reactions to Blue Ivy's debut <a href="" target="_blank">RENAISSANCE World Tour</a> performance.

According to their investigation, three companies based in Colorado have been scamming the reddest of the MAGA loyal by getting them to buy into a fake currency. There is no evidence that these companies are linked to Trump or his re-election. Pro-Trump novelty items have been common since his election defeat in 2020. However, these items are more often than not clearly labeled as decorative or novelty items. Not Trump Bucks though. Pushed by three Colorado-based companies, Patriots Dynasty, Patriots <a href="" target="_blank">Future</a>, and USA Patriots, Trump Bucks were presented a something of a preparation for the future. Buying Trump Bucks allowed the purchaser to gain a standing in the "Trump Rebate Banking System" (TBR). This system, which Trump would purportedly announce upon retaking the White House in 2024, would turn the Trump Bucks into legal tender. Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Trump digs himself into a hole for his second defamation case</a></li> </ul> Trump Bucks Explained <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> The pitch was simple - buy Trump Bucks from one of the three companies and cash it in later. For example, $99.99 got you 10,000 Diamond Trump Bucks. Once the TBR was live, that card could be exchanged at any major bank or retailer for $10,000. The advertisements that the companies used in the scam claim that the Trump Bucks Membership Card can be used as legal tender in the United States. Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Trump's alleged mistress spills details about mid-2000s affair</a></li> </ul> The scam was spread using advertising that appear to show Trump and other figures such as Elon Musk promoting the product. These fraudulent endorsements were achieved through the use of vocal AI. "That Trump certificate is not a joke, it's real. Everyone needs to get as many as they can. I spend one million dollars on Trump certificates and this week I'm going to cash out my Trump items. Soon I will be the richest person on the planet again," an AI version of Musk says in one advertisement. Furthermore, people are legitimately falling for this. While total numbers are unclear, NBC spoke to one Houston man who had spent over $2000 on Trump Bucks, only to find that they were not in fact legal tender.

The film, starring Halle Bailey, premiered in the U.S. yesterday. The Little Mermaid is projected to see Disney's fourth highest-earning opening weekend, behind Top Gun: Maverick, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Disney believes the film should also bring in around $80 million overseas this weekend, bringing the total to around $200 million. In an interview with Glamour, Bailey also recently shared her experience watching young black girls react to seeing her play Ariel.<a href="" target="_blank"> "When I saw [the videos] for the first time, I just cried,"</a> she revealed.

Bailey called the rapper her "prince charming," adding that she thinks "the best thing about young love is that you're able to continue to find yourself through this journey of loving somebody else." The performer continued, "You're discovering new parts of yourself and maybe things that you didn't notice before about your heart." "I feel like things change when love gets more involved in your life," she revealed. "I have definitely discovered more within myself as a woman....It's a really cool thing to go through, but a transformative experience." She also <a href="" target="_blank">shared her experiences dating in the public eye</a> recently. She shared, "The biggest thing I've learned in dating when it comes to dating in the public eye, is that everybody's gonna have an opinion about you, whether it's good or bad." Bailey added, "I've had this since I was younger. I think because I've grown up, kind of in the public eye, people think they have this sort of... I don't know, that they can say what they feel about my life. Like they do with everyone in the public eye."

Sure, there's the spectacular concert itself spanning a lot of her best work, but the show also had quite a few famous faces show up. For example, her husband Jay-Z and Roc Nation-managed MC <a href="" target="_blank">Megan Thee Stallion</a> <a href="" target="_blank">danced along to her hits</a> and seemed to have a great time at the show. However, despite the many, many fans that went ecstatic when they saw her, it seems like <a href="" target="_blank">Selena Gomez</a> ran into more than that at the show. Furthermore, clips surfaced online of the actress having a heated discussion with security. While it's unclear what could've provoked this interaction, it does remind fans of another superstar that raised their voice at security at a massive concert. That time, though, it was the superstar themselves. During a Philly stop of her <a href="" target="_blank">"Eras" tour</a> (which is almost as in-demand and hyped as Quee Bey's), <a href="" target="_blank">Taylor Swift</a> told security to get off of fans on the barricade. As such, many theorized that Selena Gomez was probably running into a similar situation, or at least something else that was hindering her experience or that of fans at the show. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Selena Gomez On Justin Bieber Split: "It Was The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me"</a> Selena Gomez's Brush With Security At Beyonce Show In other Selena Gomez-related news, she recently had to deal with fans pitting her against Hailey Bieber, her ex's wife. Fortunately, the two smoothed any speculated beef out and addressed fans who kept trying to incite problems between them. "I want to thank Selena for speaking out, as her and I have been discussing the last few weeks how to <a href="" target="_blank">move past this ongoing narrative</a> between her and I," Hailey expressed on Instagram. "The last few weeks have been very hard for everyone involved and millions of people are seeing so much hate around this which is extremely harmful. While social media is an incredible way to connect and build community, moments like this only create extreme division instead of bringing people together." Meanwhile, maybe one day we'll hear an explanation of what went down at Beyonce's show. Still, you'll find so many clips on social media of fans screaming for Selena and reaching their hands out to say hello as she walked past them. With that in mind, whatever happened with security is at least balanced out by the wave of admiration and love she surely felt. Regardless, stick around on HNHH for the latest news and updates on Selena Gomez and Beyonce's RENAISSANCE tour. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Kourtney Kardashian Uses Selena Gomez Song In Brand Promo Amid Beef With Kylie</a> <a href="" target="_blank">[via]</a> via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271306Antics, Music, News, Beyonce, concert, paris france, security, Selena, Selena Gomez Confronts Beyoncbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Snoop Dogg Says Ice Cube's "No Vaseline" Is The Best Diss Song by itstheboombap0, 27 May 2023 19:50 GMT<a href="" target="_blank">Snoop Dogg</a> agreed with <a href="" target="_blank">Ice Cube</a>'s recent take that "<a href="" target="_blank">No Vaseline</a>" is the greatest diss song of all time.

"And then they came with another couple of little disses. I said, 'Okay, man, I'm tired of this. I'ma end this real quick. We gon' set it all the way off.'

He wrote, "I wish I could take bacc all the times I put my business on the internet." Known to share his business frequently with the internet, he's previously <a href="" target="_blank">thrown jabs online</a> at former partners, haters, and more. In March, Quando Rondo was accused of looking a <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Durk</a> look-alike in his "Soul Reaper" music video. He denied the claims, saying, "These fans make up anything." "Man, you know, I'm growing my hair out right now. I'm tryna grow me some wicks, alright?" he added. "In my city, a lot of people do that style of hair," he claimed. "<a href="" target="_blank">With me being a celebrity</a>, I guess people always say, 'Oh, he got wicks.

I love the blonde look so that was actually one of my homies who just had dyed their hair color and I really liked that color on him. It was nothing like that," he said in the interview. Quando Rondo also claimed in December that his girlfriend at the time betrayed him by hanging out with some of his rivals. He shared in an Instagram story, "This just on some real shit I'll never fw follow like up up with an opp that Nie disrespect my dead homies and wanna harm me if I'm going through with the person I love or so call love."

Moreover, Conway The Machine announced last week that he would have to cancel his upcoming tour and postpone it to other dates due to a <a href="" target="_blank">severe leg injury.</a> Of course, messages of support, sympathy, and well-wishes poured in from fans and industry peers alike. However, never doubt the <a href="" target="_blank">former (but forever)</a> Griselda member's resilience and strength in the face of adversity. This week, he shared a video of him starting to walk with his broken leg and put on a song from another New York legend as its background music. Furthermore, the track in question was none other than <a href="" target="_blank">50 Cent</a>'s album cut "Gotta Make It To Heaven" from his 2003 classic Get Rich Or Die Tryin'. Given the song's inspirational lyrics and thematic focus, it's no wonder that it would inspire Conway The Machine to get better every day. While fans wait for an update on his next shows, at least we have a whole new album of material to celebrate. <a href="" target="_blank">WON'T HE DO IT</a> is more of what you'd expect from the Buffalo native, and it's a testament to his inherent skill and ability that it's still a standout project of the year. <strong>Read More:</strong> <a href="" target="_blank">Conway The Machine Net Worth 2023: What Is The Rapper Worth?</a> Conway The Machine's "Gotta Make It To Heaven" Through The Pain Of His Leg Injury Conway The Machine gathers strength to walk on dislocated knee with help from 50 Cent <a href="" target="_blank"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; HipHopDX (@HipHopDX) <a href="" target="_blank">May 27, 2023</a> However, this is far from the first time that Conway The Machine <a href="" target="_blank">overcame adversity and physical trauma</a> to continue striving for success. Back in 2012, shots to the face and neck left the right side of his face being paralyzed. "When it initially happened I was only in [the hospital] for a couple weeks and then I got out. But see, what I'm saying, in the hood for somebody that got shot in the head and the neck, that's fast," he told Ebro In The Morning. "But you know how it is when your insurance is not that good and you go to the hood hospitals and stuff," he continued. "They need them beds and them rooms so they're just trying to get you up out of there, and they actually released me kinda too early and I had to go back for another period of time... I had one surgery and that was just to get the bullet out of my neck." We wish him the best on his path to recovery and health, whether physically or <a href="" target="_blank">mentally</a>.

Born in Germany in 1923, Kissinger and his family fled to the United States to escape the Nazi regime in 1938. 40 years later, Kissinger would become one of the most pivotal figures in the Nixon White House. After retiring from politics, his legacy and reputation kept him deep in the bowels of Washington. In reality, Kissinger is as close as America gets to a National Angel of Death. His time as National Security Advisor and Secretary of State was marked by millions dead across the world. In perhaps the most bitter pill of irony, Kissinger's "work" on "ending" the Vietnam War saw him earn the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize. Elsewhere, Kissinger at best ignored and at worst supported the war crimes committed by dictators and tyrants installed by the United States to turn nations into American puppet states. Is Henry Kissinger Trending Because He Died? Not yet &mdash; Is Henry Kissinger Dead Yet? (@DidKissingerD1e) <a href="" target="_blank">May 17, 2023</a> The hopes of many were buoyed on May 27 when "Henry Kissinger" began trending on Twitter. As veterans of the ailing social media platform know, a celebrity trending name can mean a few things. Usually, they're either dead, in trouble, or beefing with someone. So when "Henry Kissinger" started trending, there were many people who hoped for the former. "SAD NEWS: Henry Kissinger found alive and well at 100" wrote one Twitter account. Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Trump's alleged mistress shares details of mid-2000s affair</a></li> </ul> Alas, it was not to be. Instead, Kissinger's name is trending because on May 27, he turned 100. While many outlets shared simpering adulations of the politician, many users took the opportunity to voice their disdain for the man and express their disappointment that he hadn't died. Left-wing outlet Jacobin shared a quoted from Anthony Bourdain, in which the late chef said that seeing the state of Cambodia made him want to kill Kissinger with his "bare hands". As another account noted, "Former national security advisor and secretary of state Henry Kissinger turns 100 today. His legacy includes but not limited to prolonging the war on Vietnam facilitating genocides in East Timor, Cambodia, and <a href="" target="_blank">Bangladesh</a> and supporting coups and death squads across Latin America."

The rapper captioned the Instagram post, "karma," referring to the new remix of Swift's song she is featured on. Her post also features shots of the two artists performing the new remix onstage. Yesterday, it became clear <a href="" target="_blank">how Ice Spice's fans felt about the collaboration</a>. "That verse was so bad," one user claimed after the premiere of the remix. Other fans speculated that the remix was dropped amid Swift's rumored romance with Matty Healy as a means of damage control. In Feburary, Healy appeared on The Adam Friedland Show where he made some <a href="" target="_blank">controversial comments about Ice Spice's look</a>. <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Read More: Taylor Swift And Ice Spice Drop The Video For "Karma" Remix</a></strong> Ice Spice's Fans Aren't Loving The Collab <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Ice Spice (@icespice)</a> Healy called the Bronx rapper "an Inuit Spice Girl," before mocking Inuit, Hawaiian, and Chinese accents. Yungblood fired back on Twitter, "Love listening to three privileged white dudes sit around and objectify <a href="" target="_blank">a young black female artist</a> who's blowing up." Many viewers thought the comments were racist and insensitive. "You can really tell the 'Karma (Remix)' was done last minute for damage control to clear Taylor Swift &amp; her [Nazi] boyfriend image after he said all those racist slurs to Ice Spice," one user wrote about the collab. <a href="" target="_blank">Swift announced the collaboration earlier this week</a> on social media. She wrote in an Instagram post to fans, "Um. SO much to tell you. I'm a massive fan of this brilliant artist and after getting to know her I can confirm: she is THE ONE to watch."

Moreover, reports broke that <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Durk</a> is expected to sell about 150K units first week with his latest album. Not only that, but it seems like the album is dominating the Apple Music and YouTube charts, as well. On the former, he currently holds the top spot on their albums charts, right in front of <a href="" target="_blank">Taylor Swift</a>'s Midnights deluxe edition. Still, publications project that The Voice will debut at number two, as Swift is expected to push around 300K units in the release's first week. Also, Lil Durk is all over Apple Music's top songs chart, including previous singles and new collaborations and solo efforts. On the other hand, the video for "<a href="" target="_blank">Therapy Session</a>" and "<a href="" target="_blank">Pelle Coat</a>" with <a href="" target="_blank">Alicia Keys</a> sat at the top of the YouTube trending videos charts for music.

The clip features Lil Baby losing his footing, and clutching on to a nearby skater to regain his balance. The video's caption references the rapper's upcoming tour, reading, "Don't fall twin. We got a tour this summer," along with a laughing emoji. Last month, Lil Baby <a href="" target="_blank">announced his "It's Only Us" tour</a>, which kicks off in July. It features over 30 dates across the U.S. The summer tour will also feature The Kid LAROI, Rylo Rodriguez, <a href="" target="_blank">GloRilla</a>, Gloss Up, and Hunxho. He later dropped "Go Hard," alongside an accompanying video. He <a href="" target="_blank">teased the previously-leaked track's music video</a> on Instagram prior to releasing the full version. Fans also <a href="" target="_blank">spotted Lil Baby's ex</a>, Jayda Cheaves in the music video. <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Baby Is A Man Of The People In New IG Photo Dump</a></strong> Lil Baby Nearly Falls <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Our Generation Music (@ourgenerationmusic)</a> In April, Instagram model Daliesha Keyes <a href="" target="_blank">shared a DNA test for her son</a>, claiming that Lil Baby is the father's child. "For all the haters and everyone who was trying to silence me, the truth out now," she wrote alongside a DNA emoji. Internet detectives quickly brought forth evidence that supports the idea that <a href="" target="_blank">Keyes could have been lying</a>. Users said that the paternity test appears to be photoshopped, claiming that the original image is from another DNA test found elsewhere on the internet. He has not responded to allegations that the child is his. Last month, the rapper was also seen dining out with Khloe Kardashian. The photos naturally <a href="" target="_blank">sparked rumors that the two may have been on a date</a>, much to his fans' dismay. "Protect Lil Baby at all [costs]. He must not fall prey to the Kardashian clan," one social media user wrote. Another added, "His music 'bout to be ass now." The rumors have not been confirmed nor denied, and some commenters suggested that the two could have just been out as friends. "Y'all do know two people can just go out and eat without their needing to be anything else right," one fan wrote. <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Baby Takes His Family To Hawks &amp; Celtics Game</a></strong> <a href="" target="_blank">[Via]</a> via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271298Music, News, fall, instagram, Roller Skating, Lil Baby Almost Wipes Out At Roller Rinkbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Milwaukee Bucks Reportedly Planning To Hire Raptors Assistant by itstheboombap0, 27 May 2023 18:05 GMTAfter their shocking first-round playoff exit, the Milwaukee Bucks parted ways with head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer led the Bucks to 58 wins and the Eastern Conference's first seed. However, the team struggled against the Miami Heat, losing in five games. The Bucks became just the sixth one-seed to lose in the first round of the NBA playoffs. In five years as the Bucks' head coach, Budenholzer went 271-120 in the regular season and won the NBA Championship in 2021. The Bucks joined the Suns and Sixers as contenders looking for a new coach. All three teams had deep and wide-ranging candidate pools. Notably, the Bucks became the first team to be publicly linked to a college candidate. <a href="" target="_blank">Houston Cougars coach Kelvin Sampson met with the Bucks last week</a>. However, the team now reportedly has settled on a head coach. Bucks Eye Raptors Assistant LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLORIDA - AUGUST 12: Assistant coach Adrian Griffin of the Toronto Raptors reacts during first-half action against the Philadelphia 76ers after head coach Nick Nurse stepped down for the night to let Griffin coach at The Field House at ESPN Wide World Of Sports Complex on August 12, 2020 in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. (Photo by Ashley Landis-Pool/Getty Images) According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Milwaukee Bucks' next head coach will be Adrian Griffin. Griffin went undrafted out of Seton Hall in 1996 but found his way to the NBA in 1999 after three years split across the USBL and CBA. The small forward and shooting guard spent just under a decade in the NBA with the Celtics, Mavericks, Rockets, Bulls, and Supersonics. After retiring in 2008, Griffin joined the coaching staff of the Bucks before moving to the Bulls in 2010. He spent five years in Chicago before spending a season in Orlando and two in OKC. However, he has been with Toronto since 2018, helping Nick Nurse win an NBA title in 2019. Milwaukee will be his first official head coaching position. He is set to take over a team that has the talent to win another NBA title, but has consistently fallen short in recent years. What do you think about the hire? Let us know in the comments.

Then, he proceeded to rap a couple of lines from the track: "What you doin' with all that a**? Let me touch it, she say it's mine, so I smack it when I f**k it." Perhaps the funniest part of the whole exchange is that, whether genuinely or for more laughs and engagement, the interviewer seemed to have no idea he was talking to one of the biggest rappers out of Tennessee right now. Furthermore, Moneybagg Yo is getting fans ready for his next mixtape Hard To Love: Heartless Edition. Unfortunately, hype for it slightly quelled when the "<a href="" target="_blank">Ocean Spray</a>" MC announced that he <a href="" target="_blank">delayed it</a> from this week to the next (June 3) out of respect for <a href="" target="_blank">Taylor Swift</a>. She dropped her Ice Spice collab, <a href="" target="_blank">the "Karma" remix</a> this week, and as a big fan, he had to open up the door for her. it's not like she would've sold very little otherwise, but big props go out to the 31-year-old for that one. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">All About Memphis Hitmaker Moneybagg Yo</a> Moneybagg Yo Gets Reminded Of His Ex With A Specific (And Obvious) Song <a href="" target="_blank">@nicolasnuvan</a> Memphis accent <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> <a href="" target="_blank">#rap</a> <a href="" target="_blank">#hiphop</a> <a href="" target="_blank">?

During a 2020 interview, Moneybagg Yo <a href="" target="_blank">spoke briefly</a> on what caused his split with Megan Thee Stallion. "Two strong personalities just bumping heads a lot," he shared. "It didn't work but I always wish her the best. I'm really proud of her. The Megan I know and the Megan ya'll know are two different things. It's still love, we just didn't see eye to eye." In addition, he explained that they weren't able to spend that much time together in the first place. "That's why I ended up getting a dog for her, cause I feel it'll still be a part of me." Meanwhile, the two seem to still be in healthy relationships since, Meg <a href="" target="_blank">with</a> Pardison Fontaine and Moneybagg <a href="" target="_blank">with</a> Ari Fletcher.

Since then, we've seen him make his acting debut on season two of HBO's Euphoria, quickly becoming a fan favourite among household names like Zendaya and Jacob Elordi. Now that he has more free time to pour back into music, the "3 Nights" hitmaker is gearing up to drop his sophomore album, Sunburn. The singer shared the big news earlier this month, along with confirmation of a July 7 release date. So far he's given us one single, "Dancing In The Courthouse," which was followed this New Music Friday (May 26) by another sure-fire hit. Called "Ant Pile," the latest release finds Fike candidly reflecting on his first love, which definitely came with plenty of awkward moments during his younger years. As Uproxx notes, the forthcoming project is autobiographical in nature, and inspired by his childhood in Florida. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Dominic Fike Reveals New Album Title In Teaser Clip</a></strong> Dominic Fike Previews Sophomore Album with "Ant Pile" <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> "First grade / Somebody tied you to an ant pile / And that wasn't even the worst day / Back then you knew I always liked you," the multi-talent begins his first verse, revealing to listeners that his feelings for the girl in question stretch far back long before he found fame.

Fans in the comments section of a post of the clip by The Hip-Hop Wolf had mixed responses to the list. "So New York don't have no down south rapper in top 5 just asking??" one user wrote.

Belair was featured on a recent episode of Wild 'N Out, along with her husband, fellow pro wrestler Montez Ford. Cannon remixed the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. "I get in one little fight, my mom got scared," he began. "<a href="" target="_blank">Because I wanted to impregnate Bianca Belair.</a>" Some viewers claim that Belair seemed uncomfortable with Cannon's remark, while others were more concerned that he said it in front of her husband. "Nick Cannon is so disgusting with his behavior," one Twitter user wrote. Another says, "Nick Cannon lucky af Montez Ford let him walk outta there after this. Bianca Belair was disgusted." "I know my ears deceive me ain't no way nick cannon said he wanted to get Bianca pregnant @BiancaBelairWWE that's a threat girl contact the authorities," a different commenter claims.

Russell, who is coming to the end of a four-year, $117,325,500 contract, is eligible to sign a two-year, $67.5 million extension before June 30. Russell averaged 17.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 6.2 assists per game. However, he is just one of many questions for the Lakers. They have a number of pending free agents, as well as the possibility of <a href="" target="_blank">LeBron's retirement</a>. Another source of <a href="" target="_blank">free agency speculation is Kyrie Irving</a>. The 31-year-old is set to explore the market after speculation that the Mavericks would not be re-upping after a few months of the Kyrie-Luka experiment began to emerge. While the Lakers have publicly waved off interest in Kyrie, they remain a popular candidate to acquire his services. However, the offseason is still in its infancy. Despite this, former NBA star and current analyst Jalen Rose believe that the team sent both players a message about their intentions during the playoffs.

"I don't care what number it is, what years it is because when you get benched in the close-out game while Kyrie Irving is sitting in front row, that's a double message because how did he get his tickets? And so, based on that alone, at halftime of Game 3, everybody knew that D'Angelo Russell should be benched. He was like -53 on the floor, they were like +35 with him off the floor." Russell averaged 6.3 points in 23.5 minutes of play against the Denver Nuggets. He continued. "When they didn't bench him, to me, that was them saying to him 'you know what, we're not going to do that to you right now because we hope to sign you this offseason. When they benched him in Game 4, that let me know that they're not gonna try to sign him." What do you think the Lakers will do with Russell and Kyrie? Let us know in the comments.

Moreover, her husband Jay-Z and collaborator <a href="" target="_blank">Megan Thee Stallion</a> pulled up to one of her various tour stops in Paris, France to enjoy the show together. In addition, this was apparently the same show in which Blue Ivy <a href="" target="_blank">joined her mom on stage as a dancer</a>, getting lots of love from fans at the show and online alike. In the short clip of their visit to the show, they dance along to the music and laugh with each other. Not a bad place to hang out and have fun for the Roc Nation representatives; the best place, in fact, some would say. After all, this was quite the stellar concert in particular for many reasons, even if fans have been loving the entire tour so far. For example, Beyonce also took some time to <a href="" target="_blank">tribute</a> the late great Tina Turner during her performance. Whether it's through her passion for her own music or that of other legends, Meg's fellow Houston-born friend always finds meaningful ways to connect with fans. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Megan Thee Stallion's Most Streamed Songs</a> Megan Thee Stallion &amp; Jay-Z Dancing At Beyonce's Paris Show JAY-Z &amp; Megan Thee Stallion spotted vibing out together at Beyonc Paris show <a href="" target="_blank"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; HipHopDX (@HipHopDX) <a href="" target="_blank">May 27, 2023</a> Meanwhile, Megan Thee Stallion is still locked in a <a href="" target="_blank">legal battle with her former label</a>, 1501 Entertainment. For those unaware, the Hottie accused the imprint of holding her contract hostage and not allowing her to release music under her own terms or those set out by said document. Furthermore, she believes they imposed various obstacles on her music drops and refused to acknowledge long-form releases as apt fulfillments of her deal. Ironically enough, these issues surged after the rapper signed a management deal with Hov's Roc Nation, allegedly much to the surprise of Carl Crawford of 1501. Still, at least she could hopefully get a nice distraction from all of that from seeing a fantastic show. It's been a rough few years for Megan, but she kept her head up through it all and is sure to feed fans more greatness in the future. Until then, we're all patiently waiting... and envious of everyone else who was in Paris that night.

Trademarked since 1989, the phrase is legally owned by two entities. The primary owner is the Wyoming-based Taco John's chain. Additionally, there is Gregory's Bar &amp; Restaurant, a family-owned eatery in Somers Point, New Jersey. In their efforts to force a move on the part of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Taco Bell has enlisted NBA superstar LeBron James as part of their efforts. LeBron "never misses a Taco Tuesday and can often be seen celebrating the weekly tradition with his family," a spokesperson for Taco Bell told HotNewHipHop. Furthermore, Taco Bell's campaign involves a new ad featuring LeBron as well as a petition. Gregory's Hits Back Taco Bell drive-thru with open daily hours and surrounding plants, located in a city landscape with a clear sky above, Walnut Creek, California, March 27, 2023. (Photo by Smith Collection/Gado/Getty Images) However, one of the trademark holders is now hitting back against the latest efforts of Taco Bell. Gregory's Bar &amp; Restaurant has been a staple of Somers Point, New Jersey since 1946. It is currently owned by Gregory Gregory, the fourth generation of Gregorys to own the restaurant. "It truly is a David vs. Goliath scenario," Gregory told Furthermore, Gregory wasn't amused by the efforts of Taco Bell. "It seems unfair to me Taco Bell can have a trademark for the sound of the bell on their commercials, but they don't want us to keep our trademark for 'Taco Tuesday,'" Gregory said. "Everyone rings a bell." Furthermore, Gregory recalls that this isn't LeBron's first tangle with the trademark. The NBA veteran reportedly pursued it in 2019. "We reached out to his people back then," Gregory said. "We would have been happy to sell it to him. But we never heard back." However, Gregory admitted to the scale of the fight. "We are weighing our options to whatever steps we are going to take," said Gregory. He is eager for Taco John's will lead the fight since they are the bigger entity. Taco John's controls the "Taco Tuesday" trademark in every state except New Jersey. "For us, does it make sense to spend a ton of money fighting this over a basket of $2.50 tacos?"

Turner, who <a href="" target="_blank">passed away Wednesday</a>, was born in Brownsville, and attended Carver High School near Brownsville's Heritage Park. Mayor Rawls shared that he wants the statue to live in the park, memorializing the performer's legacy. He's also getting support from various other local leaders, who share his desire to <a href="" target="_blank">commemorate Turner's career</a>. "When Tina stepped on stage, she owned it," Mayor Rawls told TMZ. He added, "We want this statue to represent <a href="" target="_blank">that passion</a>. Tina was an inspiration to the entire world." Rawls says Turner, "showed the people of Brownsville no matter where you start, you own your story about where you end up." Brownsville is also the home of the Tina Turner museum, which has seen a surge in visitors since her passing. <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Tina Turner Mourned By Questlove, Erykah Badu, And More</a></strong> Tina Turner Was An Inspiration To The People Of Brownsville Hamburg: After the German premiere of the musical "Tina - Das Tina Turner Musical", Tina Turner (M), singer, and ensemble will be on stage in the Operettenhaus.

"There have been a few people <a href="" target="_blank">leaving flowers</a>." Outlaw-Clark went on, telling Morning Edition more about the museum. The Tina Turner Museum houses various pieces of memorabilia, including costumes, records, photos, and more. "My favorite piece is the [high school] yearbook because it shows her before she ever started her music career," the executive director revealed. "They asked the students what they wanted to be, and she listed 'entertainer.' So we know she had aspirations of that even before she left Brownsville." Outlaw-Clark believes that "[Turner's] story of overcoming, <a href="" target="_blank">becoming whatever you want to be</a>," is what fans admire the most. "And making things happen regardless of where you came from or what your circumstances are." <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Beyonce Honors Tina Turner At France Tour Date: "Scream So She Can Feel Your Love"</a></strong> <a href="" target="_blank">[Via]</a> via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271283Music, News, mayor, statue, tennessee, Mayor Of Tina Turner's Birthplace Wants To Build A Statue In blogs/5-2023/271283-mayor-tina-turners-s.jpg1Brian McKnight & Ex Clashed Over Daughter's Birth Control Payments: Report by itstheboombap0, 27 May 2023 15:26 GMTBrian McKnight's family drama has been <a href="" target="_blank">quite the hot topic</a> for the past month due to a few different public scandals. Moreover, court documents reportedly obtained by Radar Online on Thursday (May 25) show that he and his ex Patricia Driver had quite the contentious court affair. Not only that, but it also brought up the various medial services that the singer refused to pay for their daughter. Furthermore, their court struggles specifically revolved around the young one's healthcare plan, her therapy sessions, and birth control pills. What's more is that the judge took different stances on each side of the aisle. For those unaware, Briana McKnight is Brian's daughter with Patricia Driver, and was born while her father was still married to Julie McKnight. The first issue that came up in their legal battle was Briana's health insurance, despite the fact that she turned 18 and was responsible for her own affairs. Reportedly, Patricia argued that Brian McKnight agree to pay her insurance costs in full during his divorce settlement and had apparently neglected the payments. Then, the judge ordered him to reimburse her for nearly $1,800 for healthcare expenses. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Brian McKnight Responds To Backlash, Shares Photos Of His Biological Children</a> Brian McKnight At iHeart R&amp;B Concert Series ATLANTA, GA - JUNE 26: Brian Mcknight attends iHeart R&amp;B Concert Series Featuring Brian McKnight on June 26, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia.(Photo by Prince Williams/Getty Images) Readers may remember that this is the same daughter that sued Brian McKnight back in 2020 for <a href="" target="_blank">incest slander</a>. In fact, that story is what got a lot of public interest in his family affairs circulating like wildfire, in addition to his appreciation of his new family over his old one. Another element in the court proceedings was Briana's therapy sessions. Apparently, the 53-year-old "did not know why it was necessary," although he eventually changed his mind after a few months of meetings. Still, it shows a clear disconnect between both sides of the family. Meanwhile, the Buffalo-born artist also allegedly did not want to pay for Briana's birth control medication. Despite Patricia explaining that it was for a medical situation, he claimed that he refused to cough up the cash because he wasn't notified in time. The judge took his side when it came to that caveat. While he continues to <a href="" target="_blank">defend himself</a> against accusations of abandonment, he did so by maintaining that he shares much more love for his current family.

When asked why he and the rest of the crew continue making films in the series, he labeled it the "dumbest fucking question in the world." Explaining why, he argued that they still make "billions of fucking dollars" with every movie. "That's the dumbest fucking question in the world. I'm going to tell you why," Ludacris told hosts, Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson. "Because no matter what industry we're in: podcasts, music, movies - it's all about a bottom line." <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Read More: NBA YoungBoy Hops On "Fast X" Single, "Won't Back Down"</a></strong> Ludacris At Trailer Launch Of "Fast X" LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - FEBRUARY 09: (L-R) Ludacris and Michelle Rodriguez attend the trailer launch of Universal Pictures' "Fast X" at Regal LA Live on February 09, 2023 in Los Angeles, California.

Bro, and I'm saying that like, I'm giving you my heart. I'm not trying to brag or nothing. So when you say - when some of ya'll keep saying, 'Why the fuck do ya'll keep shooting these movies?' Let me tell you why. 'Cause if you spend $200 million and you make a billion, who the fuck is going to tell you to stop shooting the movies when you making 800 muthafuckin' million dollars. How?" From there, he told haters of the series to stop asking that question because he feels the answer is obvious. Since its release, earlier this month, Fast X has grossed $387 million at the box office. The Fast and Furious franchise as a whole recently crossed the $7 billion mark globally.

The picture features another man rocking the shirt which has a portrait of the Atlanta rapper and "Free Slime" written in lime green. The post didn't feature a caption. Thug has been in prison since May 2022, when he and 29 other people associated with YSL were arrested on gang-related charges. Authorities charged Thug with seven additional felonies related to the possession of illegal substances and illegal firearms after a search of his home. <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Read More: YSL RICO Update: Young Thug Being Charged With 8 Counts</a></strong> Future With Young Thug ATLANTA, GA - AUGUST 15: Rapper Future and Young Thug attend Young Thugs 25th Birthday an PUMA Campaign on August 15, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Prince Williams/Getty Images for PUMA) Thug's attorney, Keith Adams, recently argued that his client is dealing with brutal living conditions in jail. "I know he's had some difficulty of a similar sort at the Cobb County Jail a few months ago, and so I'm obviously concerned about his wellbeing," Adams told Judge Ural Glanville. "Mr. Williams is sleep deprived, mandated to wake up on court days between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. and not having more than five hours of sleep per night.

Who knows. The 20-year NBA veteran made it clear that <a href="" target="_blank">he was contemplating it</a> after being swept out of the playoffs by the Nuggets. However, his final decision remains uncertain. <a href="" target="_blank">A source told ESPN that they believe LeBron is leaning towards returning to the Lakers</a>. Furthermore, the star has expressed that he would like to play alongside his son Bronny before he retires. Then again, there is every chance that this is it for LeBron after such a whimpering playoff performance. Charles Barkley has never been one to stay quiet about his opinions. That's what makes him such a great TV analyst. Recently, <a href="" target="_blank">Barkley slammed the individuals who have defended Ja Morant</a>. However, there's one subject that's gotten his proverbial goat...and it's the NBA GOAT. Charles Barkley Sounds Off &quot;HELL NO LeBron isn&#39;t gonna retire&quot; Charles Barkley <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">#PMSLive</a> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) <a href="" target="_blank">May 26, 2023</a> Barkley shared his thoughts during a call-in to The Pat McAfee Show. "I love LeBron, but he knew what he was doing," Barkley said. "I don't think he should have said anything about [retirement] and I was very disappointed... the first thing you said to me was 'Man, how great is The Joker', I'm like 'Yeah man, if y'all quit talking about LeBron retiring, [we could] talk about how great The Joker is!'" Furthermore, Barkley is adamant that LeBron will return. "Hell no LeBron ain't going to retire," Barkley exclaimed. He continued, "I love LeBron, but he knew what he was doing. He knew what the hell he was doing. First of all, he going to make $50 million a year the next two years. He ain't walking away from $100 million." LeBron is about to start a two-year extension with Los Angeles which will pay him $46.9 million next season and $50.65 million in 2024/25 if he picks up his player option. Furthermore, it's not the first time Barkley has expressed frustration about the Lakers this week. Over claims that the Nuggets didn't get enough coverage compared to the swept Lakers, Barkley said he went as far as turning off his TV because of the pro-Lakers bias. Unfortunately for Barkley, it's unlikely that the LeBron speculation will go away until the future Hall of Famer makes his decision either way.

Moreover, Drey Barrymore is one of many figures <a href="" target="_blank">boycotting Hollywood events</a> in order to make their support felt on a large scale. While it's been a rough month for the guild, they continue to make powerful statements both online and through their physical presence to put pressure for a greater goal. What's more is that their efforts transcended beyond the film and TV industry. For example, <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Wayne</a> is the latest rap icon to stand by the writers on strike, sending them a Fatburger food truck to feed those on the picket line. Furthermore, Weezy graced them with the truck on Thursday afternoon (May 25) for lunch. At the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, California, actor Greg Berlanti had already provided breakfast. "Thank you, Lil Wayne, for sending a @Fatburger truck to the picket lines today," TV writer Gennefer Gross wrote on Twitter. "AND for having a turkey burger so I can keep this #StrikeBodSummer going! #WritersStrike #WGAStrong." <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Lil Wayne Net Worth 2023: What Is The Rapper Worth?</a> Lil Wayne Does His Part To Support The Writers' Strike Thank you, Lil Wayne, for sending a <a href="" target="_blank">@Fatburger</a> truck to the picket lines today AND for having a turkey burger so I can keep this <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">#StrikeBodSummer</a> going! <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">#WritersStrike</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">#WGAStrong</a> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; Gennefer Gross (@Gennefer) <a href="" target="_blank">May 26, 2023</a> Previously, <a href="" target="_blank">Snoop Dogg</a> also shared <a href="" target="_blank">his support</a> of the WGA strike and spoke on the negative effects of streaming platforms on the industry. "[Artists] need to figure it out the same way the writers are figuring it out," the California rap legend asserted. "The writers are striking because [of] streaming; they can't get paid. Because when it's on the platform, it's not like in the box office. "I don't understand how the f**k you get paid off of that s**t," Snoop Dogg continued. "Somebody explain to me how you can get a billion streams and not get a million dollars? That's the main gripe with a lot of us artists is that we do major numbers. But it don't add up to the money. Like, where the f**k is the money?" Hopefully the industry does what it must to support the writers who are its backbone. We'd guess that this won't be the last (nor the biggest) way in which these entertainment industries support each other.

The history of promotions such as "One Dollar Hot Dog Night" and "Bobblehead Night" can be traced back to legendary sports owner Bill Veeck. Veeck began promotion nights during his stint as owner of the then-minor league Milwaukee Brewers in the 1940s. The tradition followed him throughout his long tenure of ownership across a number of major league teams. Nowadays, promotions are incredibly common and the Atlanta Braves are no different. The Atlanta-based organization has had plenty of giveaways and events throughout this season so far. Furthermore, it's been a great season so far. At the time of writing, the Braves are 31-20 and lead the NL East by 4.5 games.

On May 25, at the start of a three-game series against the Phillies, the Braves hosted <a href="" target="_blank">OutKast</a> Night to celebrate the Atlanta rapper. This included giving away bobbleheads of the musician while also having Big Boi throw the first pitch. The night was designed to celebrate the vibrant musical culture of Atlanta. It's the only non-baseball giveaway that the Braves have on the schedule for this season. Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">How the 1920 World Series could explain the finale of Succession</a></li> </ul> However, that wasn't Big Boi's involvement in the night. After throwing out the first pitch, which he claimed he had torn his rotator cuff practicing for, the rapper headed up to the broadcast booth. He fitted in perfectly, adding some entertaining play-by-play commentary as the Braves took an 8-5 win. The hometown Braves took a win in a close game, with a 3-run bottom of the eighth breaking a 5-5 tie. Some of Big Boi's best moments came over the pitching of the Phillies' Aaron Nola. "He put both the mustard and mayo on that one," Big Boi said over a particularly nasty strike. Here's hoping he becomes a regular fixture at Truist Park in the coming seasons.

Whether it's <a href="" target="_blank">Future</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">21 Savage</a>, or Morgan Wallen, Smurk put together a concise but exciting set of guest appearances. One of the most notable comes courtesy of <a href="" target="_blank">Juice WRLD</a>, who appears on the track "Cross The Globe." Of course, as expected with a Juice appearance, it comes with a somber weight, and not much is known on how this specific song came about regarding his tragically cut-short time on this planet. Regardless, it's still a compelling albeit loose collab. For one, topically the two Chicago MCs focus on much of the same: sex, drugs, and street violence. Still, the eerie guitar-led beat gives the track a melancholy feel to it, accentuated by their understated vocal deliveries. On Juice WRLD's end, he provides a fitting chorus that meshes well with Lil Durk's heartfelt verse. In fact, it might be a disservice to his lyrical themes on this track to call it a typical focus. After all, the "<a href="" target="_blank">Pelle Coat</a>" artist reflects on the harsh violence in his city, his community efforts, fallen and imprisoned MCs, and the Internet's propensity to spread negativity. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Lil Durk Net Worth 2023: What Is The Rapper Worth?</a> Juice WRLD &amp; Lil Durk Bring Melancholy Love &amp; Street Bars To "Cross The Globe" <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Recently, Durkio spoke on <a href="" target="_blank">how he processes grief</a> internally through a personal and private means.

Commenting on a post from The Neighborhood Talk's Instagram page on Friday, Lennox admitted she was in the wrong for coming at them. "Y'all can take this however you want," she began. "But my passion is SINGING. I am not an actress first nor have I been auditioning for anything. I'm beyond content with what God has blessed me with.

We all have a million reasons as to why we become who we become and I don't see the point in being judgmental and evil towards people figuring it out. I'm here with no agenda or motive. I was wrong and I want to be very clear about it. I don't mind being real about it. It's not my intent to impress you or please any of you." Lennox originally called out the two for bringing up Kobe Bryant's rape allegations following the Los Angeles Lakers legend's tragic death. "Fuck ass, fucked up, fuck Gayle [King], and fuck Oprah," she said at the time. "Y'all are some self-hating pieces of shit fuck-asses. I have never seen a c-n more fucking c-nier than got damn kale and okra. I'm over y'all. I don't give a fuck how rich y'all are, how much you fucking accomplish.

STEM refers to the education and careers defined in the industry of "science, technology, engineering, and mathematics". However, that 20% is presumably much lower in areas without sufficient or inequitable educational funding. Legendary rapper <a href="" target="_blank">Future</a> was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Previously, the Atlanta Metro area had been named one of the best areas for a STEM career. However, there is a great disparity between the corporate world and STEM education at the high school level. However, Future is now doing something to help fix the inequity at the high school level. According to a press release shared with Yahoo!, the rapper is founding the I Am A Dreamer STEM Lab at a school in Atlanta.

She continued, "Our objective in providing educational opportunities is to ensure inclusive and quality education for all students, regardless of income and background. There is a major gap in STEM education that impacts marginalized communities, and we want to close that gap so that no child is left behind."

Moreover, people questioned their status for months following a lot of social media posts and outings together, plus the lavish gifts they've given each other. Regardless, they seemed to <a href="" target="_blank">dispel a lot of that at the Met Gala</a> and thanks to the City Girl stating that she's officially single. According to them, they just went out on a great date night for the event and nothing more, even though questions about them had Diddy sweating bullets. If they're not in a relationship, at least the Bad Boy mogul is willing to drop a major bag for his platonic twin flame. Furthermore, the two just put on quite the show for a new Instagram skit promoting the City Girls' single with Diddy and <a href="" target="_blank">Fabolous</a>, "<a href="" target="_blank">Act Bad.</a>" In the clip, they stop by a Chanel store that Yung Miami absolutely raids, emerging with a heap of bags from the store. Diddy, in a bit more of a casual fit, walks out behind her looking almost exhausted, probably because of all the money he spent on her. After all, it's exactly the kind of advice that their song's lyrics contain, down to the Chanel reference, and they even got an employee roped into the skit as well. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">City Girls' Best Collaborations, From Doja Cat To Moneybagg Yo</a> Yung Miami Thanks Her "Sponsor" Diddy For Heaps Of Chanel Bags <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Caresha ..<div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="" title="" /></div> (@yungmiami305)</a> In addition, this is far from the first time that the Florida native showed her love to the fashion brand. Speaking of the Met Gala, she decided to <a href="" target="_blank">act bad</a> for her afterparty fit that was nonetheless creative and showed her fandom. Yung Miami wore a <a href="" target="_blank">dress made out of 55 handbags</a> directly inspired by Chanel, and of course looked stunning in it. She always kills it on the style side of things, and started so many extracurricular endeavors that things like rap beef just confuse her. "I be at home with my kids, ugly with a bun and all, I don't even get into that," <a href="" target="_blank">she said of female rap beef</a>. "But I really don't know. I feel like it would be so much [more fun] if everybody could just be together. We could bring each other out on shows and just link up. I feel like bad b***hes should really link up. That would be dope if everybody could just... bring their personalities together." Given that her and <a href="" target="_blank">Nicki Minaj</a> recently <a href="" target="_blank">traded words</a>, maybe she understands it more now, although that might've been in jest.

In this era, energy is really all you need sometimes. Although he is much more than just a bundle of energy, it is still an important factor in getting fans to listen to your music. Overall, when you go to a concert, you want it to be loud. Moreover, you want something that you can rage and mosh to. <a href="" target="_blank">Travis Scott</a> is one of the pioneers of this movement. However, there are plenty of other artists who have carried the mantle. <a href="" target="_blank">Playboi Carti</a> is someone who comes to mind. Interestingly enough, Cochise is compared to Carti all of the time. That said, Cochise is an artist who continues to grow his fanbase. He subsequently does this by creating music that can pop off at a festival. Consequently, he attracts more fans who otherwise wouldn't be familiar with him. Festivals are a place of music discovery, and you will only listen to those who impress and convince you. Cochise is someone who proves to be very persuasive. Now, he is offering a double dose of persuasion with his latest EP dubbed No One's Nice To Me. Cochise Pops Off <center><b><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" width="73" height="73" border="0" /></a> <a href="" target="_blank">Listen on Spotify</a></b></center> If you are looking for a lot of new music, well, you may be fairly disappointed here. Overall, there are only seven tracks to be found on this project. However, he definitely uses up that time to his advantage.

A 57-stop tour across Europe and North America to further the success of her smash-hit album of the same name. Currently, Queen Bey has hit Sweden, Belgium, Wales, northern England, and France. Furthermore, she is set to make a five-concert stop in London next week. She has already been breaking records, such as marking the large audience for a female act this century at King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels. Furthermore, she became the first act in history to sell out Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. Obviously, everyone who is anyone is eager to <a href="" target="_blank">see Beyonc live</a> and it should be expected that a lot of famous faces will be in attendance, especially when the US leg of the tour starts in July. However, it appears that at least one famous face couldn't wait until Beyonc was back in the States.

The star announced a surprise collaboration with red-hot rapper Ice Spice in the form of a <a href="" target="_blank">remix of Swift's top-10 hit "Karma"</a>. However, despite the star power, the track has met with a fairly cool reception outside of the pair's respective die-hard fandoms. Many social media users have <a href="" target="_blank">called the "collaboration rushed</a>", pointing to a fairly muted verse from the usually savage Spice. Furthermore, there are myriad theories that the track is nothing more than a PR stunt. Swift is currently rumored to be dating The 1975 frontman Matty Healy, who was involved in a podcast episode earlier this year where a plethora of racist comments were made about Spice. Despite this, it hasn't stopped the pair from putting on a show. Ice Spice Rocks All Black For Eras <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Ice Spice (@icespice)</a> As mentioned, Taylor Swift is currently deep into her 52-stop Eras Tour. The current leg sees her in New Jersey, performing at MetLife Stadium. Furthermore, she's received a warm welcome from the state - having the state sandwich named after her and getting Jets quarterback <a href="" target="_blank">Aaron Rodgers to declare that he is a die-hard Swiftie</a>. However, fans at the May 26 show got an extra surprise when Swift brought Ice Spice out on stage. Dressed in a stylized wraparound top and matching black skirt with a black shift, Spice wowed alongside Swift, who was dressed in a midnight blue mini dress. The pair performed their "Karma" remix, to the delight of the packed crowd. It's the perfect spot for Spice to appear. Spice hails from the Bronx, which lies just 11 miles from MetLife Stadium. However, it's unclear if the Spice will appear at the other two New Jersey shows but fans certainly wouldn't complain if she did. After MetLife, Swift is headed to Soldier Field in Chicago. Furthermore, the Eras Tour is set to continue until August. Swift will conclude the tour with five shows at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. Furthermore. what did you think of the "Karma" remix?

Get To Know Hip Hop's Greatest Storyteller by itstheboombap0, 27 May 2023 11:05 GMTFrom humble beginnings to global recognition, <a href="" target="_blank">Slick Rick's journey</a> is the stuff of legends. Born Richard Martin <a href="" target="_blank">Lloyd</a> Walters in London in 1965, he migrated to The Bronx, New York, with his family as a child. Encountering Hip Hop culture first-hand, he became entranced. This British-American kid, grappling with his identity, soon found his voice in Rap. Soon, he adopted the stage name "MC Ricky D." Rick's talent caught the attention of Doug E. Fresh, and soon, he was featured in Doug E.'s "The Show" and "La Di Da Di"-two tracks that would signal the advent of the "Slick Rick" persona. His cadence and flamboyant style set him apart. But his knack for weaving intricate narratives laid the foundation for Rick becoming the storyteller we know and respect. Slick Rick's Ascension: The Greatest Hip Hop Storyteller Slick Rick during The 4th Annual Jammy Awards - Show at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, United States. (Photo by Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic, Inc) Being dubbed the Storyteller isn't a title earned overnight. His debut album, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, truly cemented his place in Hip Hop. From the hilarious exploits in "Children's Story" to the poignant social commentary in "Hey Young World," each song was an intricate narrative. Additionally, he was among artists bringing light-hearted fun to the Rap scene. Rick's signature eye patch certainly set him apart, but that wasn't just a fashion choice. As an infant, broken glass would blind him in one eye. Moreover, Rick's vivid storytelling brought characters to life, using music as a canvas to depict real-life issues. He was no ordinary rapper; he was a raconteur. Each album became a new chapter, a fresh saga in the ever-evolving story of Slick Rick. Cultural Impact &amp; Peer Recognition: Hip Hop's Unrivaled Storyteller <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> The impact of Slick Rick is far-reaching. His narrative-centric style revolutionized Hip Hop, influencing countless artists. <a href="" target="_blank">Names like Snoop Dogg</a>, Biggie Smalls, and <a href="" target="_blank">Eminem</a> openly attribute their storytelling abilities to Rick's influence. His peers' response was overwhelmingly positive, affirming his status in the industry. Slick Rick's rhymes were not just entertaining-they were groundbreaking. He pushed the boundaries of what Rap could be, changing the landscape forever. Slick Rick's Legacy: An Unmatched Success Story <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Slick Rick's success wasn't confined to acclaim from his peers. He enjoyed remarkable commercial success, too, with The Great Adventures of Slick Rick going platinum. His subsequent albums, The Ruler's Back, Behind Bars, and The Art of Storytelling, also found chart success, a testament to his enduring appeal. Even today, his music is sampled extensively, his stories told and retold by generations of rappers. Rick's legacy is a beacon guiding hip hop's next generation. The <a href="" target="_blank">Future</a>: Slick Rick In The Modern Landscape Of Hip Hop <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> Pos &amp; Dave Jolicouer of <a href="" target="_blank">De La Soul</a>, working with Slick Rick on Second Installment of "Art Official Intelligence", at Quad Recording Studios, NYC, 7-18-01 (Photo by RJ Capak/WireImage) Hip Hop continues to evolve, yet Rick's influence remains undeniable. His storytelling abilities set a high bar that new artists strive to reach. While his style is inimitable, the echoes of his narrative-centric approach can be found in the works of modern rappers like Kendrick Lamar, <a href="" target="_blank">J. Cole</a>, and Joey Bada$$. The Slick Rick storyteller phenomenon isn't limited to his music either. It extends to his iconic fashion sense, notably his love for extravagant jewelry and eyepatches. These aspects have left a lasting mark on hip hop's aesthetic, demonstrating that Rick's influence is just as visual as it is auditory. As a pioneer, we salute Slick Rick and his contributions to the culture-this year for Hip Hop's 50th anniversary and many more milestones to come.

The winning streak continued when <a href="" target="_blank">Taylor Swift</a> <a href="" target="_blank">announced their collaboration</a>. Swift took to social media to reveal that Ice Spice would be featured on the remix of her 2022 track "Karma." The song is part of Swift's latest album, Midnights, which she is currently promoting during her tour. Both artists expressed their excitement online. Along with the announcement, Swift shared some almost Interstellar-inspired cover art depicting Spice and Swift in a space-themed setting. In her announcement post, Swift praised Ice Spice and expressed her admiration for the artist. In fact, <a href="" target="_blank">she even described herself</a> as a "massive fan." Despite not being part of the rap community, Swift's words hold significant weight coming from a successful artist of her caliber. The remix is included in Swift's new deluxe album, titled Midnights (Til Dawn Edition). Ice Spice responded gratefully, referring to Taylor Swift as the sweetest person and expressing her love for the artist. Now, the two have dropped the music video for the collaboration. Taylor And Ice Are A Surprisingly Good Match <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Taylor Swift and Ice Spice are glowing in the new video for their collaboration. Featuring a dazzling array of insane set pieces, the video allows both artists to shine on their own and together. For Ice's part, it's quite nice to see her in such a large budget video with such fantastical sets. One might think that she would seem out of her element, but she owns it. During her verse, she sits gracefully in a human sized shell as pearls fall from the sky into the water around her. She and Taylor are a surprisingly good match in the video, as well. Some, however, may disagree. Some of Taylor's fans <a href="" target="_blank">are not really into</a> the Ice Spice feature. The reasoning they may have is debatable. Many, however, are bothered by the fact that she is dating The 1975 frontman Matt Healy. Earlier this year, he made fun of Ice Spice's appearance. Now, many are referring to him as a racist and a nazi. One fan said, "That verse was so bad. You can really tell the 'Karma (Remix)' was done last minute for damage control to clear Taylor Swift &amp; her [Nazi] boyfriend image after he said all those racist slurs to Ice Spice." The fan went on to write, "Hope she got a massive cheque though." Whatever the reason for the collaboration, Ice certainly shines on it. What do you think of the pair's music video?

However, the physical altercation didn't showcase any exceptional fighting skills. At the very least, they certainly weren't skills worthy of a professional fighting contract. White, known for his role in Black Dynamite, <a href="" target="_blank">shared this incident during an interview</a> with VladTV. He mentioned that despite his interest in fighting, he found the situation amusing rather than impressive. White <a href="" target="_blank">described the scene</a>, saying that there were bulky bodyguard-like individuals posturing. They were making aggressive statements like, "What do you want to do?" However, White found it comical when Snoop's crew, instead of returning with weapons as expected, brought two pit bulls and commanded them to attack, exclaiming, "'Get em, Sparky!'" The actor elaborated on his amusement, explaining that he finds it funny because many people assume others, especially in bodyguard roles, possess fighting skills. However, he believes that a lot of these individuals don't train in a gym. Nor do they have real experience in street fights. Witnessing such incidents makes him chuckle due to this disparity between perception and reality. Snoop And Mack 10's History Snoop Dogg performs at the 2022 LA3C Festival at Los Angeles State Historic Park on December 10, 2022 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Sarah Morris/Getty Images) Snoop Dogg and Mack 10 were not personally involved in the altercation described by Michael Jai White. The focus of his comments was primarily on the security teams and entourages associated with the two rappers. Snoop and Mack 10 have collaborated before. Most notably, they appeared alongside <a href="" target="_blank">Ice Cube</a> in the song "Only In California." In a previous interview with Bootleg Kev, Mack 10 mentioned that he almost signed Snoop to his Hoo-Bangin Records before Snoop joined No Limit Records. Mack 10 went on to explain that the paperwork was completed and the deal was nearly finalized. He expressed that if Snoop were a free agent and he was in the music industry, it would be a missed opportunity not to pursue signing the biggest free agent available. Mack 10 likened it to Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, aiming to recruit the best talent in the field. Although circumstances changed, the paperwork had already been completed at the time. What do you think about Michael Jai White's story? Let us know in the comments below!

During the session, a viewer inquired about <a href="" target="_blank">his stance on splitting finances equally with his partner</a>. Gates responded by recounting his own personal experience. The rapper mentioning that he had been involved with a woman who offered him something invaluable that money couldn't purchase. It was a nice moment of clarity for an artist that often posts some pretty odd or explicit things on his social media accounts. "I have been in a relationship where the woman provided me intangible wealth," Gates said of the previous union. He said that "no amount of money" could buy what she gave him. "She did everything to make my life peaceful and it motivated me and allowed me to focus and make more money," Gates continued. "50/50 wasn't half of the rent, but she provided a place of peace to me in order to reach my highest potential." Gates went on to say that there are several types of wealth. Some are tangible and others are intangible. <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Kevin Gates Net Worth 2023: What Is The Rapper Worth?</a></strong> Gates: "Find Me That N*gga Who Could Say He Stuck His D*ck In Me" <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by DJ Akademiks (@akademiks)</a> Kevin Gates recently came back to Instagram to send a message to his followers. The rapper seems to have gained a certain level of peace in his life recently. In interviews not too long ago, he even spoke about hunting for his own meat. He also posted an extremely <a href="" target="_blank">NSFW video of a child being born</a>. While some may find it disturbing, one can see the value in posting it. The rapper's latest video, however, has some confused. In it, Gates seems to be relaxing in the ocean as he speaks directly to the camera. He had quite a bit to say. Some parts of it made more sense than others. "Let the record reflect, he or she that ever did me dirty when I wasn't nothing but genuine with you people... Hey, I forgive you. I didn't understand it when I was going through it, but I thank you," Gates said sincerely. "'Cause y'all... provoked me to be something that I never, ever thought I could be." This is where the rapper's message started to go a little bit off the rails. "I'm gonna step away for a while, and I'm gonna have my executive assistant take care of my affairs... Hey but do me two favors," Gates said. "Find me two n*ggas. Find me that n*gga that could say I told on him, and find me that n*gga that could say he stuck his d*ck in me. Everybody that comes around takes my style and tries to steal it." Many were confused by the second half of his statement. What do you think about it?

Timbaland acknowledged that this experience elevated his skills as an artist, stating that Missy prevented him from settling for <a href="" target="_blank">anything less than exceptional</a>. He further likened Missy's work ethic to that of an NBA player, highlighting her unmatched dedication and preparation. Missy was quick to respond to the interview on social media. She expressed her gratitude for the experience and called Timbaland a genius. "Awww @Timbaland I love you bro this interview made me tear up because of how far we come," the rapper wrote. "BLESSED I knew from the day I came to your house after school that you would change the sound &amp; cadence of music as we knew it multiple times! #genius I Thank you." Of course, Missy just made history as the first female rapper to be inducted into the Rock &amp; Roll Hall of Fame. So, it looks like her tough demeanor paid off.

Cole On "Audio Hug" by itstheboombap0, 27 May 2023 02:06 GMT<a href="" target="_blank">According to a recent interview</a> with singer <a href="" target="_blank">Summer Walker</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">J. Cole</a> has moved her to tears with a new song collaboration. During an episode of Young Miami's REVOLT TV talk show Caresha Please, Walker provided some insights to viewers about her new track featuring the Grammy Award-winning rapper. Walker began by mentioning that the song is called "Audio Hug." She had initially asked Cole to work on a song together, but due to her being heavily pregnant at the time, they couldn't meet in person. However, Cole ended up sending her something called "Audio Hug," which deeply touched her. "So we have a song called 'Audio Hug,'" Summer Walker began. "I had asked him to do a song, he really didn't get time to do it. He wanted to meet and I was so f*cking pregnant, oh my God, I can't. I don't know if you seen them pictures, I was like 200 pounds. My ankles were huge. It was crazy. So we didn't meet. But, he did end up sending me something called 'Audio Hug.'" Although they didn't meet in the studio, they did have a chance to hang out at Dreamville, where they had a good time. They also went to Dave &amp; Buster's afterward and played basketball, where Cole and everyone else got beaten. Walker mentioned that she doesn't typically like working in the studio, but their interaction was enjoyable.

Since then, her fans have been eagerly anticipating its release. Earlier this week, Walker decided to give her fans a sneak peek of the EP. She shared a video on social media, showing her enjoying the company of her friends Sexyy Red and Sukihana. They can be seen lounging by the pool and comically sampling caviar. In a lighthearted moment, Walker humorously questions, "So this is what the Caucasian people be eatin'?" Towards the end of the video, she finally reveals the details that her fans have been eagerly waiting for-the tracklist of the EP. Finally, the wait is over, and the EP is now available. As seen in the tweet above, <a href="" target="_blank">the EP is getting lots of love</a>. Sukihana, who was featured in some of the teaser material for Summer Walker's EP, tweeted her love for the project. "So proud of my sister summer that listening to her tape has me in tears," Suki wrote. "All my fans stream Summer walkers new project all day and night."

When asked about her style during the interview, Mon e claimed she was looking to be a positive role model for young girls, claiming that she believed covering up was the way to do so. "People don't ask Jay-Z to take his shirt off when he rhymes," she explained, "Redefine what it means to be sexy and what it means to be a woman." "Showing my skin is not what makes me sexy," she claimed, "I like skirts and dresses just like everyone else, but I had a message I needed to put out there. It was up to me to show people and young girls there was another way." Users have dug up the interview, calling Mon e out for stripping down more than a few times as of late. Her "self-renaissance" has included posing topless for Rolling Stone, telling them, "I'm much happier when my titties are out and I can run around free." Mon e also r<a href="" target="_blank">ecently revealed the album art for The Age Of Pleasure</a>, which again, features the performer posing topless. She explained to Rolling Stone, that a personal evolution has allowed her to feel, "more nude, more present, and less anxious," than ever. The artist also recently <a href="" target="_blank">flashed her chest during a performance</a> earlier this month, leading to a Twitter uproar. <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Janelle Mon e Explains Her Recent Antics: "I'm Much Happier When My Titties Are Out"</a></strong> Mon e Is "More Nude" Than Ever <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; Janelle Mon e<div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image4"><img id="bvimg4" src="" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image5"><img id="bvimg5" src="" title="" /></div> (@JanelleMonae) <a href="" target="_blank">May 22, 2023</a> Social media has been quick to scrutinize the performer amid her newfound confidence in revealing her body. "Sad to say, but money and fame do change some people," one social media wrote in response to the resurfaced comments. Another added, "She literally 'changed' from trying to show girls a better way to being on some nut shit." Someone else chimed in, saying, "It's called she trying sell albums lol." Some users, on the other hand, came to Mon e's defense, claiming, "It's ok to evolve and change your mind." One user showed their support, adding, "She showed y'all that for over a decade. Now she's on a different time."

Kai is no stranger to chatting up rap superstars, though. Recently, the streamer returned from his brief Twitch ban. Interestingly enough, one of his biggest supporters during the ban was <a href="" target="_blank">Nicki Minaj</a>. After he was able to return, <a href="" target="_blank">he publicly thanked Nicki for her support</a>. "Auntie Nicki, I see what you said," Kai said on a stream. "Nicki Minaj said, 'Why would y'all do that to that boy? Why would y'all ban him?' She said she gotta get all nice and cute to come on a stream, but Twitch, hold on! This is chess, not checkers. Should I give y'all a big stream like that?" Kai rightfully points out that<a href="" target="_blank"> bringing someone like Nicki onto a Twitch</a> stream would be a huge deal. But, if they are going to ban him, is that something he should be offering to the platform? Luckily Kai got to stream with Nicki eventually, although not on Twitch. A few weeks ago, the two went live together on Instagram. It made for a pretty interesting interaction, with Nicki asking the streamer to <a href="" target="_blank">show off his bedroom moves</a>. During the stream, Nicki asked the all-important question: "So how you be whinin' in it?" Kai responded by moving his camera backward so the audience can see his whole body as he gyrated. It was all in good fun, though, as Nicki is married with a baby. his interaction with GloRilla, however, was a little more serious. Kai Cenat Made GloRilla Blush <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by No Jumper <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> (@nojumper)</a> Kai Cenat may be the king of Twitch, but that doesn't mean he's above shooting his shot on live. The streamer went live with GloRilla recently, and the two seemed to have hit it off. In the clip posted by the No Jumper Instagram account above, the streamer asks the GloRilla if she has a man. She giggles and says that she doesn't. Kai seems to express surprise at this, and she tells him that he made her blush. It's an interesting interaction given GloRilla's forward, tough rap persona. No word on whether or not she and Kai exchanged numbers. Kai Cenat continues to have huge celebrities on his stream, whether in person or over video call. Given the frequency with which they tend to appear, it seems that it's only a matter of time before Cenat has an official show of his own, a la Queen Radio.

Users were quick to pop off in the replies, sharing various memes about the photos. "I think I got da funniest teenage pictures on da internet," GloRilla said alongside laughing emojis. One fan responded to the rapper, "Cuzzz who was ya sending a message too and putting Fear in?" <a href="" target="_blank">Earlier this month</a>, another photo of the rapper holding a gun as a child went viral.

Professional sports are no exception. Ever since classic episodes like "Homer at the Bat," the series has incorporated sports-themed narratives. Naturally, these episodes often led to cameos from professional athletes willing to poke fun at themselves. Some of the most notable cameos have been from the <a href="" target="_blank">world of the NBA</a>. From Shaq to <a href="" target="_blank">Magic Johnson</a>, some of the greatest players to ever set foot on the court have visited Springfield. 6. <a href="" target="_blank">Lebron James</a> &amp; Yao Ming <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> The Season 16 episode "Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass" seemed like an unlikely platform to host professional athletes. The episode parodied early viral internet videos and the controversy <a href="" target="_blank">surrounding Mel Gibson</a>'s film, The Passion of the Christ. However, "Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass" incorporated several professional athletes, including Lebron James and Yao Ming. In a scene where Homer tried to recreate the story of Noah's Ark for a halftime show, things went terribly wrong. Homer employed several professional athletes, including Tom Brady and Michelle Kwan, to help mobilize the makeshift boat. Yao Ming gets a wonderful snipe regarding the difference between labor in China and U.S. during the scene. Lebron also gets a moment to shine in the episode where he ruins a Simpson's family dinner. 5. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Living legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has never been a stranger to the world of film and television. The 7' 2" NBA titan has appeared in classic films like Game of Death and Fletch. In the Season 22 episode, "Love Is a Many Strangled Thing." Abdul-Jabbar made his debut in Springfield, where he made fun of his own large stature. In the episode, Homer went to anger management to help quell his violent tendencies. Kareem took the position of Homer, while the Simpsons patriarch embodied his son. The result was both hilarious and uncomfortable. The scene had a metanarrative regarding Homer and Bart's relationship, which has been scrutinized for over 30 years. 4. Dennis Rodman <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> The Simpsons' Halloween special "Treehouse of Horror" has been a seasonal hallmark for over 30 years. "Treehouse of Horror XVI" was no different. In the segment "I've Grown a Costume on Your Face," the show parodied The Twilight Zone episode "The Masks." The story centered around the residents of Springfield being cursed by a witch, who made <a href="" target="_blank">their Halloween costumes</a> come to life. In the episode's final moments, power forward Dennis Rodman appeared as an anthropomorphic baby pacifier. Rodman acclimated to the show's self-deprecating sense of humor, casually commenting on his controversial life. Plenty of NBA cameos on The Simpsons have been bizarre, but Rodman's was probably the most surreal. 3. <a href="" target="_blank">Steph Curry</a> Steph Curry on The Simpsons last night. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; Jawn Cena (@27inchZenith) <a href="" target="_blank">March 13, 2017</a> Some episodes of The Simpsons will dedicate their entire runtime to poking fun at a particular subject. The episode "22 for 30" was one of them. Presented in a documentary format, "22 for 30" follows Bart's rise and fall as a Springfield Elementary basketball team star player. The episode hilariously poked fun at sports documentaries with characters arguing for camera time and declaring conflicting anecdotes. Steph Curry makes a hilarious cameo as himself. His gag was throwing a paper ball into Principal Skinner's coffee through the Lard Lad Donuts' mascot. It was a brief appearance from the Golden State Warriors point guard, but it felt right at home in the faux documentary. 2. Magic Johnson <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> One of the earliest NBA cameos on The Simpsons was from one of the greatest ever to play the game. In the Season 3 episode "Homer Defined," Homer is named Employee of the Month by Mr. Burns. However, the superlative was not earnestly won as he accidentally diverted a nuclear meltdown. Homer realized his win was not well-earned. This caused him to feel guilty once Lisa started to look up to him as a role model. His guilt further deepened when he received a <a href="" target="_blank">call from Magic Johnson</a>, congratulating Homer on his heroism. 1. Shaquille O'Neal <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Shaquille O'Neal had been<a href="" target="_blank"> featured in The Simpsons</a> before his vocal debut in the episode "Gone Boy." Kevin Michael Richardson voiced the four-time NBA Champion in a previous episode. However, Shaq took the wheel in the recording studio to lend his vocal talents to the Season 29 episode. The episode is a loose parody of the hit film and novel Gone Girl. The story centers around Bart disappearing and Sideshow Bob trying to manipulate Milhouse for information on his whereabouts. Homer and Grandpa Simpson run into Shaq while tracking Sideshow Bob. However, the NBA All-Star gets creeped out by the father-and-son duo for ridiculous reasons. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271252Basketball, Features, Original Content, Sports, TV, nba, Shaquille O'Neal, the simpsons, Every NBA Cbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Obsessed Moneybagg Yo Fan Arrested After Bragging About Stealing Car by itstheboombap0, 26 May 2023 22:49 GMTA Moneybagg Yo stalker was recently arrested. Previously, the woman who goes by the name of "Poison Ivy" had been making unsupported claims about the rapper. She said that Moneybagg was the father of her child and that Ari Fletcher wanted to be like her. Social media users have often referred to this woman as an obsessed stalker. They say she has taken her infatuation with Moneybagg Yo to extreme levels. Now, a popular esthetician who has provided services to Ari has accused Poison Ivy of stealing his vehicle. Adding to the already troubling situation, Poison Ivy seemingly posted a video on Twitter featuring the stolen vehicle. In it, she danced provocatively on the car, clearly bragging about having stolen it. In the caption, she mentioned Ari and claimed that Ari's car gets towed every six months. Apparently, this happens because she spends all her money pretending to be Poison Ivy. The woman also boasted about owning three Rolls-Royce cars while mocking Ari for not having any significant assets. It seems that the woman will do whatever she needs to do to take Ari Fletcher down and get Moneybagg Yo's attention. Fortunately, with the assistance of the Atlanta police, the esthetician was able to recover his vehicle. The woman responsible for the theft was subsequently arrested. Disturbingly, it was revealed that she had four children with her at the time. See the video below. Moneybagg and Ari Are Focused On Other Things <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by The Neighborhood Talk (@theneighborhoodtalk)</a> Moneybagg Yo recently took to social media to share that he would soon be releasing his upcoming project, Hard To Love: Heartless Edition. He also created anticipation among his fans by teasing another album. Apparently, it is currently in the works and set to be released later this year. The rapper has been effectively using captivating teasers online to build anticipation. In a separate Instagram post, Moneybagg Yo openly discussed the inspiration behind this mixtape. It will serve as a continuation of his Heartless series. He has now released two singles from the project, "Motion God" and "<a href="" target="_blank">Ocean Spray.</a>" On the other hand, Ari Fletcher, Moneybagg Yo's girlfriend, playfully hinted at the <a href="" target="_blank">possibility of launching an OnlyFans account</a>. However, there is a condition. She stated that she would only pursue this idea if Moneybagg's highly anticipated mixtape achieves top-ranking status on the charts. To further encourage fans to support the rapper, Ari Fletcher took to Twitter and shared her intention to create an OnlyFans account once the mixtape reaches the coveted number-one position. She even mentioned that she has already prepared her first video for it. However, it seems that fans will have to wait a bit longer for the mixtape release and Ari Fletcher's debut on OnlyFans. The rapper announced last night that he was <a href="" target="_blank">delaying his new album until June 2nd</a>. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271253Antics, Music, News, ari fletcher, crazy fan, Moneybagg yo, poison ivy, Obsessed Moneybagg Yo Fan Arbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Scar Lip Hits Haters Asking About Her Lip Below The Belt by itstheboombap0, 26 May 2023 22:25 GMTNYC rapper Scar Lip recently took to Instagram to respond to haters who wouldn't stop asking about her scar. When asked during a Live, "What actually happened to your lip?" <a href="" target="_blank">she responded</a>, "What actually happened to that little tiny wee-wee of yours?" She continued, saying, "That's nothing but a tiny wee-wee of yours. It's like the n**gas with the tiny wee-wee's you fall in love with them, right? or Nah, not really." Scar Lip shared the origin of her lip scar with XXL, revealing that it's a result of being attacked by her brother. She began, saying, "It was a situation where I was going to a football game and my aunt was like you gotta come back at a certain time and I was like 'alright whatever...'" "I came back before I was supposed to be in the house, and then my family is acting like they're not home," Scar Lip explained. "They cut off all the lights to make it seem like they wasn't home. So I'm knocking on their door because mind you, I'm 16, I live with them I don't got nowhere else to stay. So I'm knocking on the door waiting for them to open the door and that's when my little sister came downstairs and she said, 'Oh you can't come in,'" she continued. <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Who Is Scar Lip?

Nevertheless, the 23-year-old is still adored in the eyes of her latest lover, 070 Shake. The actress confirmed her relationship with the singer via Instagram recently. At the time, she revealed that they've spent the past four months getting to know each other. While they didn't make their red carpet debut during the <a href="" target="_blank">HBO show's premiere at Cannes</a> this week, Shake was waiting for her partner at LAX upon her arrival back in the US on Thursday (May 25). As Page Six reports, the creatives shared a passionate kiss as paparazzi cameras snapped away. Depp was casually dressed for her flight, wearing a cropped white tee with no bra underneath and black sweatpants. She attempted to conceal her identity with a pair of sunglasses. Now that she's achieved TV star status, however, it'll be nearly impossible for the blonde beauty to blend in with the crowd. Especially once The Idol makes its world debut in the coming weeks. <strong>Read More:</strong> <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>070 Shake &amp; Lily-Rose</strong> <strong>Depp Confirm They're Dating With A Passionate Kiss On IG</strong></a> Lily-Rose Depp at The Idol Premiere Abel 'The Weeknd' Tesfaye and Lily-Rose Depp attend "The Idol" photocall on May 23, 2023, in Cannes, France.

Even with the scathing reviews slamming the hypersexualization of Depp's pop star character, she seems far more focused on the love unfolding in front of her. According to The Hollywood Reporter, there are hardly any scenes "without the camera showing flashes of [Lily's] breasts or ass." "You start to wonder if this is building to anything, and by episode two it seems likely that it's probably not," they further noted. Rolling Stone previously shared similar criticisms of the show, but The Weeknd and his co-star <a href="" target="_blank">didn't seem bothered</a> by those either.

The news of Turner's passing <a href="" target="_blank">deeply saddened fans worldwide </a>when it was announced on Wednesday, May 24. Turner's official Instagram account confirmed her death. They expressed sadness and acknowledged her remarkable <a href="" target="_blank">musical talent and ability to captivate millions of fans</a>. They also brought up the fact that she inspired future generations. The post served as a farewell to a dear friend and recognized Turner's music as her greatest legacy. Heartfelt condolences were extended to her family, highlighting the profound impact Turner had on the world. Numerous notable figures, including Beyonce, former US President Barack Obama, and <a href="" target="_blank">Usher</a>, immediately offered tributes. Beyonc had the incredible opportunity to perform with the legendary Queen of Rock &amp; Roll. Her tribute included a photo of their performance of "Proud Mary" at the 2008 Grammys. The iconic pop artist expressed her deep love and gratitude for the late singer, praising Turner's inspiration, resilience, power, and passion. Furthermore, she emphasized the profound impact she had in paving the way for others. Beyonc went beyond a simple social media message, as the <a href="" target="_blank">tribute is prominently featured on the homepage of her website</a>. If You're A Fan Of Beyonc , You're A Fan Of Tina Turner Beyonce took her tribute a step further by asking fans to show the late Tina Turner some love.

Exuberant displays of wealth no longer tantalize the masses in the way they used to. Instead, the world prefers to hear about celebrities giving up their wealth to charity, and stepping out of their bubbles of fame and fortune to remember what life is like for the majority of the population. Earlier this month it was not only announced that <a href="" target="_blank">Beyonce</a> could earn <a href="" target="_blank">upwards of $2 billion in ticket sales</a> from her RENAISSANCE World Tour, but also that she and Jay-Z made history by purchasing the most expensive mansion in California history - in cash. Obviously, members of the BeyHive were as pleased to hear of their favourite singer's continued success as ever. Elsewhere on social media, others have been expressing feelings of disgust over the displays of mass spending, which arguably could be put toward more humanitarian efforts than another mansion for the Carters. "[Who] cares, people can barely afford their rent. No one is happy for them," one Twitter user declared after hearing the news earlier this week. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Beyonce &amp; Jay-Z Paid Cash For Their Impressive New House</a></strong> Beyonce and Jay-Z Expand Their Empire Jay-Z and Beyonce perform on stage during the "On the Run II" tour opener at Principality Stadium on June 6, 2018, in Cardiff, Wales.

Others shared their opinions that the couple bought the home to help them during tax time, proving how money savvy they've become throughout their careers. Aside from those ranting about Bey and Jay keeping their cash to themselves, others are simply annoyed that a home which looks so plain from the outside could cost $200M. "Looks like a concrete prison. I guess there's no accounting for taste," one critic wrote. "The only thing that looks good is the ocean," another added, admiring the view. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Beyonce's Latest "RENAISSANCE" Tour Photo Dump Is Giving "ALIEN SUPERSTAR"</a></strong> Twitter Reacts Keep scrolling to see more Twitter reactions to Beyonc and Jay-Z's new California home.

The tour began in March and runs through August, hitting 20 cities. Swift has set multiple records at a variety of the stadiums she is playing at. However, Last week she was in New England for a trio of shows at Gilette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots. She also received a governor's citation from Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey. For their part, the <a href="" target="_blank">Patriots made sure that Swift felt welcome</a> during her time in their stadium. Leading the way amongst the Patriot Swifties was quarterback Mac Jones. The three-year starter attended one of Swift's tour stops alongside her girlfriend Sophie Scott. Furthermore, the Patriots put together a video highlighting some of their other players' favorite T-Swift songs.

After the Patriots showed out, it was clear that <a href="" target="_blank">Rodgers, the new signal-caller for the hometown Jets</a>, would be asked about the pop star's concerts. Turns out Rodgers is a major Swiftie. "I'm a fan, big fan," he began when asked before going into a deep dive into Swift's discography. "It's tough. It's really tough. I think my favorite album is Folklore and my favorite song off that album is probably "August." And my favorite music video is 'I Bet You Think About Me.'"

Murphy announced the "Taylor Swift ham, egg, and cheese" sandwich ahead of her stop at MetLife. After East Rutherford, Swift hits another 10 NFL stadiums so expect to learn the Swiftiness of Justin Fields, Joe Burrow, Pat Mahomes, Brock Purdy, and Russell Wilson to name a few.

While she herself is still coming down from the high of crossing that off her bucket list, Ice Spice continues to beef up her resume, now adding the first rapper to collaborate with <a href="" target="_blank">Taylor Swift</a> to her list of accolades. The pair teamed up for <a href="" target="_blank">"Karma (Remix)"</a> on Friday (May 26), and while the idea is certainly admirably ambitious, it missed the mark with many listeners, and they weren't afraid to express their feelings on Twitter. "That verse was so bad," one user wrote after the song premiered. "You can really tell the 'Karma (Remix)' was done last minute for damage control to clear Taylor Swift &amp; her [Nazi] boyfriend image after he said all those racist slurs to Ice Spice," they further speculated. "Hope she got a massive cheque though." Several others agreed with this sentiment, noting the odd timing of the New Yorker's link-up with Taylor amid her rumoured relationship with The 1975 frontman Matty Healy. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Katy Perry Says She Wants To Collaborate With Ice Spice</a></strong> Ice Spice Lands Another Major Collaboration <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> As we reported earlier this year, the "Somebody Else" singer <a href="" target="_blank">poked fun at Spice's appearance</a> earlier this year. A few months later he offered an odd apology while on stage, and Swift has avoided commenting on the situation entirely. This has also <a href="" target="_blank">sparked outrage</a> amongst some fans, who expected more from the Red hitmaker. "Taylor Swift failing to address the racist comments Matt Healy made towards Ice Spice and then finding a way to profit off of her with a new collab is a textbook example of white woman feminism," one of them pointed out.

Still, the superstar keeps finding new ways to not just treat them to a special experience, but do so for her family, as well. Recently, she brought out her daughter Blue Ivy to dance with the rest of her team during a performance of her track "MY POWER." Of course, Ivy kept up with grace during the show, which is unsurprising since <a href="" target="_blank">this isn't the first time she's joined her mom on stage</a>. Still, this is a level up, and it's great to see her enjoying some quality family time in what should be a pretty busy and distracting time for the Queen. Furthermore, Beyonce's family is as much of an emotional and audience support as they are a literal part of the team. For example, Blue Ivy and her dad Jay-Z <a href="" target="_blank">watched her opening show</a> in Stockholm, Sweden along with the rest of the BeyHive. In order to keep a low profile and blend in within the pit, they wore simple black and white clothes as they watched the spectacle. After all, they can't try to top the 41-year-old's amazing fits on her special night. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Beyonc 's Ivy Park x Adidas Partnership From Start To End</a> Blue Ivy Performs With Beyonce <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by The Neighborhood Talk (@theneighborhoodtalk)</a> What's more is that this isn't the only way in which Blue Ivy is following in her parents' footsteps. Sure, she's clearly gotten a lot of help along the way, but how many other celebrity kids can say that they have <a href="" target="_blank">two RIAA-certified gold singles</a> at that age? Her first was for her contributions for the closing track (aptly named "Blue") on Beyonce's 2013 self-titled album. Furthermore, the second is on The Lion King: The Gift for the song "BROWN SKIN GIRL." Meanwhile, she also got in touch with some heavy star power earlier this year- though, again, it can't be too uncommon for her these days. During the 2023 Super Bowl, the 11-year-old <a href="" target="_blank">snapped some pictures</a> with <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Uzi Vert</a>. Given that Queen Bey <a href="" target="_blank">performed their track "Just Wanna Rock"</a> during her tour, the connection is unsurprising.

She shared an Instagram post recently, claiming that her mother showed up on her doorstep looking to work things out with her estranged daughter. The star says that despite it having been three years since their last visit, "time heals all wounds." She went on to share that she feels "blessed" to have the opportunity to heal her relationship with her mother. Social media users had mixed reactions when it came to the news of the star's rekindled relationship, with some feeling as though she should be careful who she trusts. The post includes a photo of Spears as a child. It reads, <a href="" target="_blank">"My sweet mama showed up at my door step yesterday</a> after 3 years ... it's been such a long time." She adds, "with family there's always things that need to be worked out ... but time heals all wounds !!!" Spears says, "after being able to communicate what I've held in for an extremely long time, I feel so blessed we were able to try to make things RIGHT !!!" She tells her mother, "I love you so much !!! Psss... I'm so blessed we can have coffee together after 14 years !!!

According to TMZ, "reliable insiders" claim that Britney was engaging in frequent yelling matches and even physical altercations with Asghari. Upon the release of the trailer for the outlet's documentary on Spears, rumors that she had a <a href="" target="_blank">"fascination with knives"</a> also began to circulate. The sources told TMZ that Britney has a "constant fear of being institutionalized," feeling that the knives are a "means for protection." Her husband took to social media to <a href="" target="_blank">respond to the media surrounding their marriage</a>. He said, "All of a sudden - after 15 years when she's free after all those gaslighting."

For foodies, Hulu is releasing Flamin' Hot, a film about the, alleged, origins of the Flamin' Hot Cheeto. Meanwhile, the sneakerheads were treated to Air, starring Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, which chronicled the origins of the <a href="" target="_blank">Air Jordan</a> brand. Elsewhere, Taran Egerton headed up Tetris, which chronicled the wild journey that brought the smash-hit video game to the United States. The football world lost an icon in December 2021 when Hall of Famer <a href="" target="_blank">John Madden passed away</a>. Not only was Madden a Super Bowl-winning coach, but he also helped spawn the equally iconic Madden video game franchise. That franchise will now be the focus of its own biopic. Will Ferrell Tapped To Play Madden LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - APRIL 26: Will Ferrell holds canine cast member Sophie as he speaks onstage to promote the upcoming film "Strays" during the Universal Pictures and Focus Features presentation during CinemaCon, the official convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on April 26, 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images) According to Deadline, a film about the origins of the Madden video game franchise is in the works. The film reportedly "picks up with the legendarily fiery coach after his exit from the NFL, as he teams with Electronic Arts to become the unlikely co-creator of a pioneering video game franchise." Furthermore, Will Ferrell will star as Madden. It's a throwback to a time when Ferrell made a string of sports comedies like Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Blades of Glory, and Semi-Pro. However, the film is not expected to be an outright comedy. Helming the project is director David O. Russell. Known for hits like Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, and Silver Linings Playbook, Russell's star has faded in recent years. Amsterdam has gone down as one of the biggest flops of 2022. Furthermore, and more pressingly, Russell has had multiple accusations of abuse and misconduct leveled at him. The film is set to be written by Cambron Clark, a freelance writer for The Onion and Weekend Update. Madden will be making his featuring debut.

Reactions to the news were mixed, with some expressing sadness over no more interviews from The Matrix actress and their favourite celebrities while others, <a href="" target="_blank">such as Nick Cannon</a>, suggested that the Will Smith and Chris Rock beef at the 2022 Oscars may have had something to do with it. Regardless, it certainly won't be the last we'll see of Jada on our screens, though some past guests aren't hesitating to shade her years after their own sit-down on the show. Ayesha Curry, for one, had plenty to say during her recent interview with Insider. The basketball wife is the cover star of the publication's latest digital issue, and she made it clear that she's not as insecure or "crazy" as editing on the internet show made her sound. "Stephen is very nice by nature and he's very talkative," the fashionista said of her NBA star husband at the time. "Everything is always very friendly and sometimes to the point where I'm like, I'm a grown woman so I'll just insert myself. I'll be like, 'Hello. How are you doing?'" <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Biggest "Red Table Talk" Moments That Got People Talking</a></strong> <a href="" target="_blank">Steph Curry</a>'s Wife Has Beef with Red Table Talk <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by The Neighborhood Talk (@theneighborhoodtalk)</a> "The ladies will always be lurking, hoping for their moment and waiting. But for me, I honestly hate it," Curry further added. Looking back on the moment now, the 34-year-old asserted, "It's not what I said, and the context was weird. Yeah. I took that one personally." Elsewhere in her conversation with Insider, Ayesha discusses her decision to begin therapy following the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as stepping away from the spotlight. Rather than acting and making public appearances, she's now been pouring into charity work and entrepreneurship.

There was always some doubt that LSU's visit to the White House might not go ahead. Angel Reese, the team star and unofficial leader, very publicly beefed with the White House after comments made by Dr. Jill Biden. <a href="" target="_blank">Reese went as far as to joke about visiting the Obamas</a> instead before confirming that she would respect the team's decision to visit the White House. The first sports teams to be invited to the White House were two amateur baseball teams in 1865. It quickly became a tradition amongst professional teams. In 1976, the Indiana Hoosiers Men's Basketball team became the first collegiate visitors to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It has since become an annual tradition for collegiate champions to visit the President in the months after their title.

During President Biden's remarks, freshman forward Sa'Myah Smith fainted. She was immediately swarmed by her team as the live stream cut out. However, President Biden could be heard reassuring the crowd. Later, Biden apologized, "It's a lot of standing," Biden said. "I apologize. It's OK. It's happened lots of times." A few minutes later, head coach Kim Mulkey gave a quick update on Smith. "As you can see, we leave our mark where we go," Mulkey said. "Sa'Myah planned that. No, Sa'Myah is fine, for those of you who are concerned. I'll assure you of that. ... She doesn't want to leave. She wants to stand with us but she needs to be checked out." Angel Reese shares a hug with Jill Biden: <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; philip lewis (@Phil_Lewis_) <a href="" target="_blank">May 26, 2023</a> Meanwhile, Dr. Biden and Angel Reese appeared to squash their beef. Reese presented the Bidens with a custom LSU jersey before embracing the first lady, Dr. Jill Biden. Dr. Biden had been the primary target of Reese's wrath after the National Championship Game. This was due to Dr. Biden's comments that appeared to imply that she intended to invite National Runners-up Iowa to the White House as well. However, the two appear to have no bad blood now.

Moreover, a lot has been speculated over <a href="" target="_blank">what they would be up to today</a> had they not lost their lives. During a recent appearance on the Jay Hill Podcast, <a href="" target="_blank">DJ Drama</a> added his hat into the ring of that conversation. Furthermore, the Gangsta Grillz legend believes that they would be at the same level of today's most successful and entrepreneurial rap titans. He brought up <a href="" target="_blank">Dr. Dre</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Diddy</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Snoop Dogg</a>, and Jay-Z as names that the two deceased MCs would rank among. "When you go back and you listen to Big's albums or Big's lyrics, he's still 20-plus years of saying s**t that's still impeccable bar-wise," DJ Drama shared. "'Pac, the same thing. They both died when they was like 25. Let's think about where all those that were around them are now. If we think about Dr. Dre, we think about Snoop, we think about Hov, we think about Puff. These are all people that are some of the biggest, most successful and richest people in our culture today. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">DJ Drama Net Worth 2023: What Is The Legend Worth?</a> DJ Drama's Comments On Biggie &amp; Tupac On The Jay Hill Podcast <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> "Big and 'Pac would've been right there, if not bigger," DJ Drama continued. "Let's really think about it. Look where Snoop and Dre are, look where [Puff] and Hov are. Why would we not think by any means that Big and 'Pac would not be right up there, billionaires within the culture? They was on their way. Big and 'Pac wouldn't have fell off, by no means. They would've been up there with the n***as I just named doing amazing things in music and outside of music for sure." Of course, Biggie and Tupac's legacies are so legendary and widespread that they manifest in many ways, whether respectful, culturally impactful, lucrative, or unconventional. On that last category, artificial intelligence renditions featuring Biggie's voice have been <a href="" target="_blank">quite controversial</a> lately, for example. While <a href="" target="_blank">Timbaland</a> made his dream collab as a result, many wonder whether this is the right way to preserve fallen artists' memories. Regardless, there's no doubt that no amount of money could ever quantify their impact.

They all contributed to the group's evolution and impact on the music scene. This article delves into the ensemble that made up this iconic band. The Core Of Public Enemy: Founding Members Chuck D, Flavor Flav and Terminator X, members of the hip hop group Public Enemy, photographed on May 1, 1987. (Photo by Jack Mitchell/Getty Images) The founding members are at the heart of Public Enemy: Chuck D and <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Flavor Flav</a></strong>. These two have been the only consistent members of the band since its formation in 1985. Both icons have maintained the group's distinct sound and message despite the many lineup changes over the years??. Chuck D, born Carlton Ridenhour, is Public Enemy's primary lyricist and lead vocalist. Known for his powerful voice and politically charged lyrics, Chuck D played a crucial role in establishing Public Enemy's strong social and political stance. His partner in rhyme, Flavor Flav, born William Drayton, added a unique flavor to the group. As a rapper, hype man, and comic foil to Chuck D's intensity, Flavor Flav provided a dynamic balance to the group's sound and stage presence. Key Contributors: Professor Griff &amp; Terminator X <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Professor Griff, born Richard Griffin, served as the group's Minister of Information. He joined Public Enemy at its inception but left in 1989. He rejoined in 1998, only to part ways again some years later?<a href="" target="_blank">1</a>?. His input in the group's thematic content was pivotal, especially in their critique of American society. Additionally, Terminator X, born Norman Rogers, was Public Enemy's original DJ. His turntable skills were an essential component of the group's sound. However, he was replaced by DJ Lord in 1998 after deciding to step back from the group?<a href="" target="_blank">1</a>?.

His turntable acumen has helped to maintain the group's signature sound and high-energy performances. Sammy Sam is a recent addition to the group. Though not as well-known as the founding members, he plays an essential role in the current lineup.

Despite these shifts, the group has managed to retain its distinctive sound and powerful message, thanks to the contributions of each member.

That decision could determine the direction of the Lakers' offseason. LeBron is about to start a two-year extension with Los Angeles which will pay him $46.9 million next season and $50.65 million in 2024/25 if he picks up his player option. No one is quite sure what LeBron will do. He looked all of his 38 years at several points during the playoffs. Furthermore, this season marked the <a href="" target="_blank">first of LeBron's career where he did not receive at least one MVP vote</a>. However, LeBron has also expressed the desire to play at least one season alongside his son Bronny. James' eldest son will play just 1.7 miles from as he spends a year at USC. Despite this speculation, sources are starting to talk about which way LeBron is leaning. Close Source Says LeBron Stays LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - MAY 22: LeBron James #6 of the Los Angeles Lakers sits on the bench prior to game four of the Western Conference Finals against the Denver Nuggets at Arena on May 22, 2023 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images) A source "close to James" has told ESPN that he believes that LeBron star will be back next season and fulfill his contract. While his payout is astronomical, that would allow the Lakers to attempt to run it back next season. "I would say this resoundingly clear: Our intentions are to keep our core of young guys together," Lakers vice president of basketball operations and general manager Rob Pelinka said Tuesday. Furthermore, the Lakers would likely prefer to keep LeBron, as it would be one less contract they would have to worry about. The Lakers will already be pursuing an extension with Austin Reaves, Rui Hachimura, and DeAngelo Russell. Furthermore, they have longer-term options to worry about, such as extensions for the likes of Anthony Davis and Jarred Vanderbilt. However, we won't know for a while what LeBron plans to do next year. He was most recently spotted at the high school graduation of his son Bronny. What do you think LeBron will do? Let us know in the comments.

After four seasons and hundreds of twists, turns, and backstabbings, we finally get an answer to the question "Who will succeed Logan Roy?" It's a question that was put sharply into focus following Logan's death earlier in the season. There are three primary candidates to finally and permanently take over at Waystar Royco from the <a href="" target="_blank">late Logan Roy</a>. You have Kendall Roy, Logan's son and his presumptive successor for most of the show. Furthermore, Kendall has been running the company since his father's death. However, there is also youngest son Roman who has been gunning for his brother's gig after the collapse of CEBros. Finally, there is Shiv, Logan's daughter and one-time preferred choice for the role. She is currently playing the long game, budding up with Swedish tech magnate and potential new Waystar Royco owner, Lukas Matsson. But a baby name website might have solved the show's highly-anticipated finale. Nameberry Reveals Sports Reference As Solution <a href="" target="_blank"></a> Do the names on Succession reveal the show's ending? <a href="" target="_blank">#succession</a> <a href="" target="_blank">#hbomax</a> <a href="" target="_blank">#tomwambsgans</a> <a href="" target="_blank">#billwambsganss</a> <a href="" target="_blank">#shivroy</a> <a href="" target="_blank">#successionhbo</a> <a href="" target="_blank">#successiontok</a> <a href="" target="_blank">#successionfinale</a> <a href="" target="_blank">#babynames</a> <a href="" target="_blank">#nameberry</a> <a href="" target="_blank">? Epic Inspiration - DM Production</a> In a TikTok video, the editor-in-chief of Nameberry broke down a fascinating baseball reference that has been sat in plain sight for the entirety of the show. Tom Wambsgans is Shiv's husband, baby daddy, and recurring villain. He has spent the show working his way up the corporate ladder at Waystar Royco and is seen as the "anti-nepo baby" option by the company's old guard. Wambsgans, as Nameberry explains, is a very rare and somewhat unique German surname. The best-known example of the name is Bill Wambsganss, a second baseman who played in the MLB between 1914 and 1926. However, this is where things get interesting. Wambsganss is not especially notable, except for his unassisted triple play in the 1920 World Series. To put it another way, a man named Wambsgans took out three people in the season finale. It's an intriguing theory to be sure and one of many currently floating around. Meanwhile, sportsbooks currently have Shiv as the odds-on favorite to take over the company. What do you think about this theory - is Wambsgans a nod to the successor? Or is this simply a red herring to stir up a little drama?

Get To Know Hip Hop's Boom-Bap Icon by itstheboombap0, 26 May 2023 16:35 GMTListening to an Alchemist beat is unlike anything else in hip-hop. The boom-bap icon's beats convey pure happiness and freedom, ranging from his works with Boldy James to <a href="" target="_blank">Freddie Gibbs</a>. Raised in Beverly Hills, California, he quickly identified with the rebellious nature of hip-hop. By the mere age of 14, The Alchemist, born Alan Daniel Maman, decided to spearhead hip hop duo The Whooliganz in 1991 alongside Scott Caan, who went by the moniker Mad Skillz. They initially grabbed the attention of B-Real of Cypress Hill. While the two recorded an entire album for Tommy Boy Records, the label would decide not to release their project in 1993 after their debut single failed to reach commercial success. Eventually, Caan would venture into acting to great success. However, The Alchemist fell further in love with the creative process of hip-hop. While The Alchemist's first musical initiative had failed, hip-hop contemporaries noticed his hunger. He would quickly become fascinated with the production aspect of rap. Under DJ Muggs' guidance, he learned the functionalities of using a sampler and a mixing board. By the late 1990s, The Alchemist had become the go-to producer for Dilated Peoples. This opened the gates for his work with Mobb Deep and eventually, collaborations alongside Nas, <a href="" target="_blank">Ghostface Killah</a>, and Snoop Dogg. He became a household name in hip-hop, and by 2005, Eminem recruited him to be his official DJ under Shady Records. While he had reached the pinnacle of hip-hop production by the 2000s, his heart remained in the rugged sounds of underground hip-hop. On top of his production credits, he also released several solo projects, including 2004's 1st Infantry and 2022's The Alchemist Sandwich. The Alchemist's Beats Have Revived New York Rap <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> The <a href="" target="_blank">Alchemist's production style</a> attempts to unite the sound of the underground with radio. Polished yet rugged, his golden-age sampled loops attracted a wide range of elite MCs from New York to Los Angeles. However, his reputation is most associated with the long-lasting trait of hard work. There's seemingly an announcement of a new Alchemist-produced album every few weeks. So far, 2023 has seen the release of <a href="" target="_blank">Larry June's The Great Escape</a>. The project features mellow beats entirely created by The Alchemist that pair perfectly with June's laid-back California flow. In addition, he contributed to an astounding 17 hip-hop albums in 2022 alone. While The Alchemist grew up in Southern California, his beat-making days have most heavily influenced the revived boom-bap sound of New York. He's played a crucial role in reviving the East Coast underground through his many production credits with artists such as <a href="" target="_blank">Earl Sweatshirt</a>, Navy Blue, Wiki, and the Griselda crew. He told <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>Complex</strong></a>, "My process is to become friends first, or just to get to know a person and like them. When I think back on a lot of the good music I made with people, when we first met, there was a moment when I was like, 'I like this guy.'" That perspective is a fresh one in hip-hop, especially as many producers work with artists for underlying financial motivations. The Alchemist Supports Smaller Artists <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> That focus on creating great music has been more apparent as The Alchemist has continued to develop as a producer. Rather than work with the biggest MCs in the game, many of his recent records have been with underground and independent artists who are carving out their legacy. However, that hard work would culminate with a Grammy nomination for Freddie Gibbs' Alfredo in 2020. Combining Italian mafia themes and electrifying guitar strings, many hold Alfredo as the best album in Gibbs' deep discography. The Alchemist continued that classic streak since then, releasing critically acclaimed projects such as Roc Marciano's The <a href="" target="_blank">Elephant Man</a>'s Bones and Curren$y's Continuance. Many modern-day beat lovers wouldn't know it, but The Alchemist is also a talented verse-dropper. While he briefly ditched his pen game after his teenage project wasn't deemed entertaining enough to hit the charts, he's still dabbled with creating his own verses during his spare time. Take 2012's Russian Roulette, a project that he expanded on with <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>Tidal</strong></a>. "At first it was instrumental, then I filled it in with some rhymes and just wanted to spread my wings a little bit as far as the stuff I was accustomed to making. I wanted to subvert what people were expecting and just go left a little bit." Most recently, he traded bars with <a href="" target="_blank">Hit-Boy</a> on "Slipping Into Darkness" off of Surf Or Drown. Only Getting Started Now approaching the halfway mark into 2023, The Alchemist has yet to announce another project for us to look forward to. However, Vince Staples <a href="" target="_blank">recently expressed frustration </a>regarding the leak of his unreleased Alchemist-aided tracks. If the past is any indicator, we'll be hearing much more from one of boom-bap's most iconic producers by the end of the year. The Alchemist has garnered a reputation as hip-hop's hardest worker throughout a career that now surpasses three decades. Impressively enough, it looks as if the 45-year-old is only just getting started. <a href="" target="_blank">[via]</a> <a href="" target="_blank">[via]</a> via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271211Features, Music, Original Content, boom bap, Soul Assassins, the alchemist beats, Who Is The Alchemibvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Coi Leray Confuses Fans With Picture With NBA Trophy by itstheboombap0, 26 May 2023 16:32 GMTCoi Leray is hard at work promoting and gearing up for her next album <a href="" target="_blank">COI,</a> but her latest post left many basketball fans confused. Moreover, she posed with an NBA trophy ahead of the Finals, which begin on June 1 pitting the Denver Nuggets against whoever wins between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat (the series is currently 3-2 in the Heat's favor). "Winnnnnerrrrr @nba x (CL)," she captioned her post with a bizarre set of hashtags. "#TeamCeltics #TeamLebron<a href="" target="_blank"> </a>#WNBAForever." Given that <a href="" target="_blank">LeBron</a> and the Los Angeles Lakers <a href="" target="_blank">lost against the Nuggets</a>, many are urging the rap star to catch up with the news. Jokes aside, she clearly just wants to show her love and support to a legend despite the disappointing loss. Also, as a Boston native herself, it's no surprise that Coi Leray's rooting for her team to make a massive comeback, which is already halfway done. If the Celtics reverse a 3-0 deficit against the Heat, it would be a monumental moment. Still, the series is <a href="" target="_blank">far from over yet</a>, and the comments filled up with many skeptics of the Massachusetts team's chances of winning. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Coi Leray Talks "Bops," Body Shaming, &amp; Her Sophomore Album With Apple Music 1</a> Coi Leray Poses With NBA Trophy Screenshot via Instagram @coileray However, this isn't the only big hunk of metal that the 26-year-old posed with recently. While performing at Revolution Saturdays at REBEL in Toronto, she brought our a <a href="" target="_blank">platinum plaque</a> for her single "<a href="" target="_blank">Players."</a> The song, which flips the classic hip-hop track "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, became one of her biggest tracks ever. With other sample-heavy tunes like "<a href="" target="_blank">Bops</a>" and "Make My Day," it seems like Coi Leray found a solid recipe for success that fits her style. Despite the confusion that this brought about, the trophy makes one thing clear: right now, no matter the hate, she's winning. Still, another post of hers also left fans with a head-scratcher, which was when she revealed the <a href="" target="_blank">tracklist and features</a> for her upcoming album. Not only are <a href="" target="_blank">David Guetta</a> and Saucy Santana in the mix, but also Lola Brooke, Skillibeng, Giggs, and the one and only James Brown. Sure, there are some prominent rap names in there, but others have fans wondering what this project will sound like. We'll have to wait and see how the hitmaker capitalizes on her hype.

With a hard cap of 144 roster spots available, it's incredibly hard for rookies to secure a spot in the league. This year, just 15 of the 36 players selected in April's draft made an opening-day roster Furthermore, <a href="" target="_blank">several high draft picks from recent years were also released</a>. Among those cut was Alexis Morris, who was taken at #22 by the Connecticut Sun. Morris played for four college teams between 2017 and 2022. However, she is best remembered for the two seasons she played at LSU. Furthermore, she ended her college career with a National Championship. But Morris' reaction to her cutting earned her backlash. Morris Apologizes <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Lex Luth<div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> r "The Don General" (@alexismorris45)</a> In now-deleted tweets, Morris put WNBA veterans on blast after being cut by the Sun. "The vets gotta know when to cut the net, and pass the torch bro," she wrote. "If you knocking at 35, hang it up and I mean WIRED HANGER 'Hang it up," Morris wrote. However, her comments earned her swift and fierce backlash from players across the league. "Don't speak on someone else to make yourself feel better," longtime veteran Kayla McBride wrote. "We all got stories. Just go write yours. As a whole the WNBA (is) fighting for respect and each of our stories look different. And should be respected," she wrote. Furthermore, she added, "Respect the grind. Respect those around you. It'll get you a long, long way." Morris has now apologized for her comments. "To the veterans of the WNBA, please accept my sincerest apologies. I never thought joining the W family would be easy, but now I understand just how hard it is to do that. My energy would have been better served directed toward league executives who have a say in expansion and other logistics. I look forward to celebrating your individual and collective careers and giving you all the flowers you deserve." She continued, "I hope you can empathize and find it in your hearts to forgive me. I will continue to work hard in hopes of joining you all one day soon." Additionally, Morris apologized to the fans. Furthermore, follow all the latest sports news here at HotNewHipHop.

One of the latest phrases she's been using is "acting bad," or <a href="" target="_blank">"real bad,"</a> ultimately inspiring her to team up with JT, <a href="" target="_blank">Diddy</a>, and <a href="" target="_blank">Fabolous</a>, to create what some are already calling the "song of the summer." On Friday (May 26) the collaborators dropped off "Act Bad," along with a wildly raunchy music video that sees the New York native dancing naked during an evening of wild partying. "It's going to be an 'Act Bad' summer," Sean Combs declared in an Instagram post the day before dropping off his latest banger. As Hypebeast reports, the father of six has previously defined the phrase as "being free, enjoying yourself, letting go, and not giving a f*ck." If nothing else, today's Kid Art-directed visual perfectly emulates all of that, with the Bad Boy founder getting even wilder for the camera than his Florida-based friends. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Yung Miami Claps Back At Twitter Troll Asking For New City Girls Music</a></strong> Diddy Declares "Act Bad" The "Song Of The Summer" <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by LOVE (@diddy)</a> Of course, Yung Miami and JT have their moments too, taking turns rapping the chorus for the camera while twerking and showing off their bodacious bodies. <a href="" target="_blank">"Act Bad"</a> marks the partner in rhyme's first release of 2023, following their promise from a few months ago that this summer will mark the arrival of new music from the City Girls. They previously previewed a title of their own, called "Pi ata" during Rolling Loud California, but opted to drop off their sure-fire hit with Diddy first. Interestingly, the new joint effort comes just days after Caresha clapped back at a Twitter troll asking about upcoming releases from them. It remains unclear when they plan to give us more, but it likely won't be much longer seeing as the three-year anniversary of <a href="" target="_blank">City On Lock</a> is quickly approaching.

On the final track of her sophomore album, <a href="" target="_blank">Still Over It</a> - mostly dedicated to her toxic relationship with London on da Track - the Atlanta native begins by singing, "I wanna start with your mama, she should've whooped your ass." "4th Baby Mama" has since gone on to become an anthem for women scorned, and it wasn't the last time Walker spoke out about her feelings on the topic. More recently, she joined City Girls rapper Yung Miami on the <a href="" target="_blank">Caresha Please podcast</a>. The duo discussed "all the smoke" as the rapper loves to put it, dishing on everything from Walker's recently revealed relationship with Lil Meech to her plans for having more children in the future. While things with the BMF actor sound to be going great, the "No Love" songstress did have some things to get off her chest about the mothers of men she's previously dealt with. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Summer Walker &amp; Lil Meech Snuggle &amp; Smoke Shisha On Her Instagram Story</a></strong> Summer Walker Talks Toxic Mothers on Caresha Please <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by The Neighborhood Talk (@theneighborhoodtalk)</a> "I have no regrets," Summer confirmed of her decision to release the relentless song. "There's nothing worse to me than, like, men who have enabling mothers. Like, narcissists that have enabling mothers. Like, you could call a n*gga mama and be like, 'He just did this, he just did that.' And they'll be like," the mother of three explained as Miami cut him off to add, "'What you do that make him do that?'" The two women agreed that it's painful to deal with women like that. "And that's why he acts like that now, because you never disciplined him or told him when he was wrong," Walker ranted before revealing that her two youngest children are boys, and she's determined to not raise them in such a manner. "I wish a girl would call me and tell me my son did some crazy shit to her. I would be like, 'N*gga is you crazy?! I ain't raise you like that. Don't be out here embarrassing me.'" <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Yung Miami Hints At Cancelling "Caresha Please" Podcast: "N*ggas Scared Of The Smoke"</a></strong> R&amp;B Starlet's Full Interview with Yung Miami Tap into Summer Walker's full stint on the Caresha Please podcast below.

Moreover, Raz seemingly went to Saint Luke's Hospital for a surgical procedure and had posted an Instagram video calling for help as he feared for his well-being. When authorities caught wind of his exit, police talked him inside and he is currently under evaluation with medical staff. In his video, the 37-year-old suggested that he didn't think he would survive the surgery at the hospital. As such, this latest incident only further alerted supporters and brought up more discussion surrounding his health. "All day I've been trying to clear miscommunications up, but I want everybody to know right now ... I don't feel safe," he remarked in his post. "I'm in Kansas City, I'm at the Hilton Hotel and I'm telling everybody right now, Raz B does not feel safe. Put out an APB for Raz B in Kansas City, I don't feel safe. That's the location where I'm at. Call all my Army friends, Marine friends. No, I'm not good. That's exactly where I'm at. Come get me. Yup, I'm standing right here and everybody's gonna be compliant.

However, he later explained the less worrisome circumstances concerning <a href="" target="_blank">the raid</a>. "At around 1:30 a.m. this morning, I realized I unfortunately locked myself out of my apartment when arriving home from an event," he wrote. "I was able to enter after several attempts, however someone did contact the local officials. I was able to speak with the police chief and explain the situation. He was an angel and all is well now. You can only imagine how I felt being an African-American male in today's society, and you have the police randomly knock on your door in the middle of the night."

The public conversation around B2K's legacy has also brought about much concern and care for Raz's physical and mental state. Hopefully he gets the help he needs and is able to live a prosperous life without having to escape unwanted medical procedures. That being said, we hope the surgery actually results in his recovery.

Overall, he has been getting some pretty major co-signs from some big artists. For instance, in 2021, he even got to be part of <a href="" target="_blank">Kanye West</a>'s Donda. Although he was eventually taken off "Keep My Spirit Alive," he was immediately remembered by fans who were paying attention. These days, he continues to make his own music, all while performing at huge festivals like Rolling Loud. Simply put, he is here to stay. Subsequently, he has been teasing a brand-new project with the likes of Gesaffelstein. Gesaffelstein is a super producer of sorts who has worked with the likes of <a href="" target="_blank">The Weeknd</a>. He has a very dark and brooding electronic sound that fans love. Overall, we get to hear a glimpse of this project with <a href="" target="_blank">the amazing song "Roll The Dice"</a> in which KayCyy shows off his singing chops. Now, they are here with a full 7-track EP together called TW2052. KayCyy Continues His Ascent <center><b><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" width="73" height="73" border="0" /></a> <a href="" target="_blank">Listen on Spotify</a></b></center> Gesaffelstein's production is fantastic all across the album. Loud drums, electronic soundscapes, and quite a bit of ambiance allow for KayCyy to shine. Some of these tracks take an industrial hip-hop approach, such as "No Cold." However, the first three songs have more of an r&amp;b vibe that some could compare to The Weeknd and others of that ilk. Either way, this is KayCyy at his absolute best. He is experimenting quite a bit and is doing some great things here. This new project cements him as someone to continue watching. With KayCyy making big moves, it will be interesting to see what he sets out to accomplish next. Of course, he is still young and still has so much upside as an artist. That said, let us know what you think of this latest project, in the comments section down below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for the latest news and updates from around the music world.

The Grammy Award-winner is once again proving this after winning her defamation lawsuit against Tasha K. A month ago it was first reported that the YouTuber's social media checks are being seized by Bardi. She's presently awaiting the remainder of her <a href="" target="_blank">nearly $4 million payment</a>. The mother of two first received upwards of $10K from Tasha's ad revenue. Shortly after that, she reportedly took home another $640. While still nice to receive, they're hardly making a dent in the massive amount still owed. Late on Thursday (May 25), @theneighborhoodtalk exclusively reported that the embattled internet star has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy as of yesterday. "A Chapter 11 debtor usually proposes a plan of reorganization to keep its business alive and pay creditors over time," the outlet explained. "The plans are designed to keep the business operational during and following the bankruptcy process." When filling out these applications, a list of assets must be submitted. This information revealed that Tasha K has just $95 in her Chase account at this time. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Cardi B Seizes $640 More From Tasha K Via YouTube Checks</a></strong> Cardi B Leaves Tasha K Broke After Winning Lawsuit <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by The Neighborhood Talk (@theneighborhoodtalk)</a> Her personal belongings (purses, cars, clothing, her engagement ring, and business-related properties) are reportedly worth $58,595.56. At this time, Tasha K is not being evicted from her home. Nevertheless, Cardi has explored options around <a href="" target="_blank">seizing her enemies' property</a> in the past. It remains unclear if the YouTuber has a clear plan in place, or any idea when she'll be out of debt, but the road ahead of her certainly seems like a long one. After Cardi B was declared victorious against her last October, Tasha K attempted to appeal the judgement. The rap diva's legal team promptly urged that it be thrown out, but the 41-year-old continued to <a href="" target="_blank">plead for another trial</a>. Ultimately, the judge took the side of the New Yorker, who was left traumatized after Tasha falsely claimed she had an STI, among other damaging comments.

After his dramatic exit from the NFL in 2021, Brown made his return to football earlier this year after buying a majority stake in the Albany Empire, an arena football team in New York. However, drama has followed Brown like a shadow. There is an overarching mystery about just who actually owns the team. An investigation recently released that Brown is actually more akin to a mouthpiece for an ownership trust. Furthermore, Brown's tenure has been marred by scandal. Despite the Empire being two-time defending champions, they are 1-3 in the 2023 season. Furthermore, they lost a well-respected head coach after multiple payment deadlines were missed. That was followed by <a href="" target="_blank">rumors that Brown will be suiting up for the team</a>. Now more drama, and more rumors, have surfaced. New Rumors, New Drama ATLANTA, GA - FEBRUARY 03: Antonio Brown attends Friday's at Red Martini Restaurant and Lounge on February 3, 2023 in Atlanta, Georgia.(Photo by Prince Williams/Wireimage) Let's start with the drama. Brown recently had to eat humble pie after a local Italian restaurant claimed that the team walked out on a $700 tab. Eventually, after a days-long local media blitz, Brown visited the restaurant to pay the tab and offer an apology. However, that is not the end of the recent problems for the team. Brown has long claimed that he owns "95%" of the Empire. The other 5% is currently owned by a local couple, Charlotte and Steve von Schiller. The von Schillers purchased their stake last year but now want to be bought out due to the infamy that Brown's ownership tenure. Furthermore, the von Schillers have indicated they are willing to pursue legal options if needs be. However, Brown now has his eye back on the NFL. According to his agent, JR Rickert, Brown has been receiving "genuine" interest from NFL teams ahead of the 2023 season. "He is exploring the right fit," his agent told CBS. "I think that he is a multi-talented individual who does everything at a high level," Rickert continued, "and whatever he commits to, he goes all in." Do you think an NFL team should re-sign Brown?

The label closed out 2022 on <a href="" target="_blank">a high note with releases</a> from <a href="" target="_blank">Ab-Soul</a> and SZA. However, Top Dawg confirmed that they had more in store for the year. Reason's on pace to light on the year with a new project. Although it's been nearly three years since New Beginnings, he's released a string of singles, from records like "<a href="" target="_blank">Barely Miss</a>" to <a href="" target="_blank">The Game</a>-assisted, "Impalas &amp; Hydraulics." On top of the number of freestyles he dropped, Reason is evidently in go-mode. To kick off the campaign for his next body of work, the rapper released "At It Again" earlier this year. With production from Coleman, Motif Alumni, and Tariq, who deliver a triumphant soundscape, Reason comes out the gates swinging with anthemic flows and instantly quotable bars. However, he leveled up the record today with the release of the official remix with a little help from <a href="" target="_blank">Jay Rock</a>. Jay Rock Joins Reason On Remix <center><b><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" width="73" height="73" border="0" /></a> <a href="" target="_blank">Listen on Spotify</a></b></center> It's been a minute since we've heard from Jay Rock. However, he didn't disappoint fans with the release of his new verse on "At It Again." Joining forces with Reason, Rock comes through with a firm reminder of why he's one of the coldest MCs on <a href="" target="_blank">TDE</a>. Rock glides through the horn-heavy production for his first offering of the year and matches Reason's high energy. It's a verse that highlights Jay Rock's successes from getting it out of the mud to establishing himself in hip-hop. Thankfully, he also gave fans a little update on what he has in store for this year. "Top Dawg hit me like 'we at it again,' Rock comin' soon, new bag for the win," he raps. Earlier this year, <a href="" target="_blank">Top Dawg confirmed</a> that there were a handful of projects from the label on the way. He confirmed Jay Rock would drop this year while also hinting at a potential <a href="" target="_blank">Black Hippy</a> EP. Although no update surrounding the reunion of the rap supergroup has surfaced since, it's been five years since Redemption so we're long overdue for a new album from Jay Rock.

In 2021, they went to the Elite Eight of March Madness. However, a year later, they crashed out in the first round. But they could be about to bounce back given their 2023 recruiting class. The big name is obviously <a href="" target="_blank">Bronny James</a>, ESPN's #19 prospect and the son of NBA legend LeBron James. He's the star power, Mr. Hollywood, the poster child. But he's not the premier prospect in the class for the Trojans. That would be Isaiah Collier, ESPN's #1 prospect. Together, along with the rest of USC's young core, the Trojans could be looking at their first Final Four appearance since 1954. However, questions are starting to be asked about some of the things that USC is doing in light of this major recruiting class. USC Dismisses Claims Of A "Bronny Tax" LOS ANGELES, CA - JANUARY 07: Wheeler guard Isaiah Collier guarded by Sierra Canyon guard Bronny James during a high school basketball game between Sierra Canyon and Wheeler in The Chosen-1's Invitational at Galen Center on January 7, 2023 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Brian Rothmuller/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images). There's no denying that Trojans tickets are about to become a hot commodity. "There is an added tier here, an added level, for sure, with the family ties Bronny comes with and the friends that not only he has but that his family has. And the following that could follow him and come to games on any given night," USC Chief of Marketing Craig Kelley told ESPN. "It's up to us to prepare." Among that, Kelley acknowledged that ticket prices at the Galen Center are set to rise. However, he objected to the price hike being seen as a "Bronny Tax". "I know it's going to be hard to believe, but with or without Bronny, the prices were more than likely going to go up by a few percentage points just because that's just the nature of the business," Kelley said. "Most teams are increasing their prices 2% to 3% annually. We've actually been flat for quite some time. And so we were going up in price just because the team has just gotten better. And you do add some notable name players." Furthermore, USC has never shied away from high-profile students. Their 2023 graduating class included Sasha Obama and Princess Salma bint Abdullah of Jordan. However, that won't be much comfort to the Trojan faithful who are going to feel a bigger pinch of their wallet next season.

Moreover, this new offering comes just a couple of months after the Kentucky MC dropped his latest album, <a href="" target="_blank">MAD</a>. Featuring <a href="" target="_blank">Young Scooter</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Boosie Badazz</a>, and Kada, it continued a hot streak of prolific and consistently energetic long-form releases, whether on his own or collaborating with 42 Dugg. Now, it seems like Gee is capitalizing on the success of that album with this new single, which for longtime fans, is more of what you probably love about the 29-year-old. It's hard, it's confident, it's murderous, and yet it doesn't slouch on lyrical creativity and melodic sensibilities. Furthermore, this track comes tapped with a catchy and effortless hook from EST Gee, working in some impressive flow switch-ups and a unique vocal cadence. On that note, the "<a href="" target="_blank">25Min Freestyle</a>" MC's voice sounds gruff but focused on this song, making sure to not slur his delivery and deliver his bars with emphasis. Given his evocative imagery, cheeky turns of phrase, and engaging rhyme schemes, this is a more lyrically proficient offering than meets the eye. Then again, that's always been one of his standout talents. In addition, he even features Dugg on the outro, who seemed to call in <a href="" target="_blank">from jail</a> to urge Gee to... well, "Turn The Streets Up." <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">EST Gee &amp; 42 Dugg "Last Ones Left" Review</a> EST Gee's Music Video For "Turn The Streets Up" <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Meanwhile, the instrumental on here has a lot of powerful and rapid bass kicks that keep a balanced bounce. Along with eerie synth patches and key lines, it's a textbook example of contemporary rap production, with more subtle instrumental additions ultimately serving to emphasize the rapper's flow and the drum pattern. Go blast this in your car on your next drive and let us know in the comments if you're already excited for more from the CMG signee.

Not only did the Chicago native share his highly anticipated Almost Healed album today (May 26), but he's also been doing some press to promote the 21-track effort. Earlier in the week he spoke with DJ Akademiks on the media personality's Off the Record podcast, during which he discussed the late <a href="" target="_blank">King Von</a>, the YSL RICO trial, and his latest work, among other things. While Durkio made it abundantly clear that he <a href="" target="_blank">believes Gunna snitched</a> on his co-defendants, he simultaneously showed plenty of love to <a href="" target="_blank">Young Thug</a>. "If you a rat, I f*cking hate you. Because I love Thug," the father of six told Ak amid his rant about <a href="" target="_blank">Gunna</a>. Elsewhere, the host brought up the famous photo from 2018 in which Durk watches on in amazement while the So Much Fun hitmaker seriously works on the computer in front of them during a studio session. "What the f*ck was y'all looking at?" Akademiks asked his guest. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Lil Durk Accuses Gunna Of Snitching In YSL RICO Trial: "That Man Told"</a></strong> Lil Durk Discusses Young Thug Meme from 2018 Lil Durk speaks on the viral picture of him &amp; Young Thug looking at a computer screen In the studio <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; 2Cool2Blog (@2Cool2Blog) <a href="" target="_blank">May 25, 2023</a> Smurk responded, "He told me not to tell nobody." To this, the embattled blogger cracked a joke, "That's the same thing he said. Y'all must have been watching some porn." Rather than deny the rumours, the 7220 artist pointed out that it's clear that he and Thugger have a seriously strong bond. "That's how you know we won't snitch on each other," Durk declared. As HipHopDX notes, the multi-talent publicly spoke about the photo in 2020, tweeting that the YSL leader <a href="" target="_blank">"showed him $20 million."</a> The pair has made plenty of magic in the studio together before with Young Thug helping out with two tracks on his pal's 2016 I'm Up project. <strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">Yeat Releases New Collab With Young Thug, "My Wrist"</a></strong> Smurk's Full Interview with DJ Akademiks Check out both episodes of Lil Durk's appearance on DJ Akademiks' Off the Record podcast exclusively on Spotify below.

Earlier this month, <a href="" target="_blank">Bronny announced that he would be committing to USC</a> to play at least a year of college ball. Furthermore, Bronny is expected to declare for the NBA draft after his freshman year and could be as high as a top 10 draft pick. However, his NBA future could be linked to his father's, at least for his rookie contract. However, before he does all that, he needs to officially leave high school. Bronny has been a student at Sierra Canyon High School, where he developed into a highly sought-after college prospect. After all, LeBron James' son still needs to show that he can hoop. But all of that was forgotten as Bronny officially graduated on Thursday. Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">NBA will consider punishment for flopping</a></li> </ul> LeBron Attends Son's Graduation LeBron's still-active, for now, NBA career has meant that he has to miss some of his son's big moments. Recently, LeBron was unable to attend Bronny signing his Letter of Intent. This was because he was in Denver for the Western Conference Finals. However, now out of the playoffs, LeBron is free to revel in his son's success. LeBron and his wife Samantha were sat in the front row as Bronny and the rest of the Class of 2023 crossed the football field at the elite Chatsworth high school. It presumably took LeBron back to his own graduation in Ohio, just months before he became the first overall pick of the 2003 NBA Draft.

For Bronny, he begins his preparation to join Andy Enfield's team at the Galen Center. The hope is that Bronny as well as elite prospect Isaiah Collier can turn the team's fortunes. The Trojans have not reached the first Final Four since 1954. Meanwhile, LeBron will decide his future. He has <a href="" target="_blank">openly contemplated retirement</a> after his playoff exit. However, he has also acknowledged his desire to play alongside Bronny before stepping away from the league. However, for now, the James family is celebrating the most recent success of their eldest son.

There's no doubt that Drake is one of the <a href="" target="_blank">most streamed artists</a> in the world and the rapper continues to set new records with each release. Most recently, Drake reached a huge milestone on Spotify as the most streamed rapper in the world. Thanks to the success of <a href="" target="_blank">"Search And Rescue,</a>" which recently reached 100M streams on Spotify, Drake surpassed 80 billion plays across his whole discography on Spotify, per ChartData. Drake's pull on Spotify hasn't gone unnoticed over the years. In 2021, Spotify declared Drake as the most-streamed artist in the U.S. with 8.6 billion on-demand streams. In addition, one out of 131 streams that year also belonged to his songs. Needless to say, Drake continues to reign supreme on Spotify and it seems like he could possibly continue his dominance in the near future. He recently debuted the long-awaited "At The Gates" ft. <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Uzi Vert</a> on Sound42 while fans have speculated that the release of Scary Hours 3 is near. Drake's History With Spotify .<a href="" target="_blank">@Drake</a> becomes the first artist in Spotify history to surpass 80 billion streams across all credits. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; chart data (@chartdata) <a href="" target="_blank">May 23, 2023</a> In a matter of months, Drake raked in another 5 billion streams on Spotify. Back in January, the rapper reached a milestone of 75 billion streams. However, Drake used the opportunity to <a href="" target="_blank">urge streaming services to compensate artists</a> for their success. "We should get bonuses like athletes to motivate the future artists to be consistent and competitive," Drake wrote. "Feel free to send me a Lebron sized cheque. I have enough dinner plates." Spotify has yet to respond but it's certainly something that's worth considering. Besides his Spotify milestone, Drake is gearing up to embark on his first tour in nearly five years. The rapper and <a href="" target="_blank">21 Savage</a> will hit the road for<a href="" target="_blank"> the It's All A Blur tour</a> across North America. The tour kicks off on June 29th at Memphis' FedExForum before closing out at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena on October 7th. Hopefully, we'll get some more music from Drake before then.

Is a lot of that conversation due to his <a href="" target="_blank">feud</a> with fellow car show host DJ Envy, as they've sent each other shots back and forth? Well, yes, but well before that, Rozay made it clear that he would put on an opulent and lavish event for his community. In fact, he made that all the more clear with his latest Instagram promotion, where he revealed over $300,000 in gold and diamond chains as prizes for the event's winners. Moreover, categories include "Best Car," "Best Bike," "Hustler Of The Year," and many more. Fortunately for the Promise Land's host, previous obstacles that could've prevented the celebration from taking place resolved themselves shortly after they came up. For example, local officials originally did not give Rick Ross an official permit to be able to host the car show. However, earlier this week, the Biggest Boss confirmed that <a href="" target="_blank">they gave him the all-clear</a> on his Instagram page. As such, now the stage is set for his event to thrive, and the battleground with him and DJ Envy on each side has a clear view between them. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Rick Ross' Biggest Beefs That Took Over Hip-Hop</a> Rick Ross Shows Off His Car Show Prizes: Over $300,000 In Chains <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by THE HIP-HOP WOLF (@thehiphopwolf)</a> However, there are plenty of people out there who think that beef has gone too far, including <a href="" target="_blank">Fat Joe</a>. "<a href="" target="_blank">Don't like</a> what's going on with Rick Ross and DJ Envy," the New York rap icon said in an IG video. "Don't like it. I love 'em both. Beautiful men in their own right, successful, do their thing. I don't like where it's going. I know I've had my share of beefing with people, but I don't like it because they're both beautiful, beautiful people." Meanwhile, this weekend will see the first stage of this "showdown," with Envy's show in Memphis (in benefit of <a href="" target="_blank">Young Dolph</a>'s family) taking place on Sunday, May 28. On the other hand, the MMG mogul will host his event at his Promise Land estate in Fayetteville, Georgia on Saturday, June 3. If one of those chains catches your eye, or what DJ Envy is offering, then you better find yourself a nice whip soon.

However, his latest alleged purchase might just top the rest. Moreover, SuperCarBlondie reported that Fif bought the White Lightning Jet Car for a staggering $1.5 million, and the hefty price tag isn't just for show. In fact, the Parker Brothers designed the whip with inspiration from Formula 1 and built it from scratch. According to reports, it can reach up to more than 400 horsepower and ride at 250mph on the streets. Considering the <a href="" target="_blank">G-Unit</a> mogul's insane portfolio, it's crazy to think that this is just a hobby for him at this point, albeit a passionate one. Apparently, he actually brought things down a notch when it comes to his crazy purchases. "The stuff that they see that I've learned, it kinda kept me out of trouble at points," 50 Cent told Ari Melber. "The stuff I was saying in the music in the very beginning, I was crazy to tell you the truth, Ari.

However, during a recent Instagram Live session with fans, he suggested that "The Final Lap" might be a literal title for his tour after all. While it will commemorate the <a href="" target="_blank">20th anniversary of Get Rich Or Die Tryin'</a>, it seems like it will be his farewell trek. Still, the Queens legend said he sold 500,000 tickets in seven days, so in any case, it'll be a successful and fulfilling last ride. "Because ticket sales are doing so well, they're adding new markets," he told fans. "So the U.K., North America and possibly Australia will be in there. I gotta get to Africa, I got a lot of spots I gotta hit before I be done, because this is the Final Lap Tour. <a href="" target="_blank">I won't be running around like this no more</a>, I gotta do my film and television stuff. Got a lot of other things going on behind the scenes that I gotta work on, so I won't be out touring as much as I've been touring.

Overall, some eras are <a href="" target="_blank">looked back at more fondly than others</a>. For instance, when he was just dropping mixtapes, he had the Young Sinatra phase. Although this was about a decade ago, some fans still yearn for this time. The artist has continued to evolve over the years, but recently, he decided to go back to those roots. As you can imagine, this promise has had fans brimming with anticipation. The artist had <a href="" target="_blank">been teasing a track called "Juice II."</a> For those who listen to Logic, you know that he has a song called "Juice" on his Young Sinatra project. Having said that, it is easy to see how fans would immediately get excited. After all, that mixtape was an exciting time for Logic. In 2011, he was hungry as ever looking to make it in the rap world. Consequently, his lyrics and flows reflected that hunger. On "Juice II," Logic is successful in bringing back some of that motivation-driven rap. Logic Drops A Sequel To An Old Track <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> As you will immediately hear with this new song, Logic is giving us those fast flows he is so known for. Furthermore, the track has some braggadocios lyrics here. The artist can be heard talking that talk, which is quite refreshing. There are many times when he has gone a different route, but fans will definitely appreciate this approach. Ultimately, it is a great track that his hardcore fans will enjoy quite a bit. He has been quite busy with his latest string of releases, so it will be interesting to see if he decides to drop another project soon. Either way, there is no doubt that he has been a content machine as of late. Let us know what you think of this track, down below.

The Canadian R&amp;B star returned to History Nightclub in Toronto for his homecoming show, which led to a <a href="" target="_blank">Drake</a> cameo. The OVO Boss sang PND's praises during a brief freestyle while he was on stage. "<a href="" target="_blank">I'm going on tour</a> but Party droppin' PND 4," he sang to the audience to applause. Between speculation of Scary Hours 3 and a new PND project, it sounds like the OVO clique will hold us down for the summer. PartyNextDoor has been ramping up the anticipation for his forthcoming album for a few months now. In late 2022, he popped up with the release of OG Parker for "No Fuss." Then, he joined forces with <a href="" target="_blank">Diddy</a> for "<a href="" target="_blank">Sex In A Porsche</a>," leading to the release of his first solo single since 2020, "<a href="" target="_blank">Old Friends</a>." Fans have been demanding the album's release, which Party further hinted at on Instagram ahead of his homecoming concert last night. Hopefully, we won't have to wait much longer for PND4.

"First of all, can I just say on behalf of everybody in this room, can you come home more, please? Please!" Drake <a href="" target="_blank">began</a>. "I would not be the artist I am if it wasn't for you. And that's not like even some like I get on stage with people and I'm nice sometimes but this is really actually, like, my favorite artist in the world and I love this guy." Hopefully, we'll be getting a new collaboration from the two of them this summer. On stage, Drake proclaimed that he already heard PND 4 in its entirety, adding that it was going to be "one of those summers." PND released his last project, PartyMobile in 2020, featuring singles like "Loyal" ft. Drake and "Believe It" ft. <a href="" target="_blank">Rihanna</a>.

While Jayson Tatum led the way, the Celtics relied on the first proper team performance of the series to avoid crashing out. However, they were far from safe. The Miami Heat still lead 3-1 and have three more chances to secure a showdown with the Denver Nuggets in the NBA Finals. Jimmy Butler and the other leaders of the Heat squad shrugged off the loss and chalked it up to the unpredictability of the playoffs. "If anything, it will build momentum for us knowing that we have to play with a lot more energy," Butler said. "We've got to play like our backs are against the wall. But I think all year long, we've been better when we've had to do things the hard way." Heat Drops Game 5 That&#39;s two <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="" title="" /></div> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">#UnfinishedBusiness</a> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; Boston Celtics (@celtics) <a href="" target="_blank">May 26, 2023</a> The Celtics came out of the gate hot and lead by 15 at the end of the first. Every time the Heat scored, the Celtics would just re-establish the lead. While Miami didn't let the game get away from them in the second, they still trailed by 17 at the half. The second half followed much of the same pattern, with the Heat never able to find a scoring run that would get them back in the game. The Celtics led by 18 heading into the final quarter. While the Heat were able to add some garbage time points, the game had long been over by that point. The Celtics sent the series back to Miami with a 110-97 victory. It was an embarrassment of riches for the Celtics, with four starters scoring at least 20 points. Meanwhile, the Heat failed to even have one starter reach 20 points. However, the Heat are struggling to refind their rhythm with two key starters in Gabe Vincent and Tyler Herro sidelined by injury. Duncan Robinson, who played 28 minutes off the bench, led the Heat in scoring with 18 points. Meanwhile, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo combined for 30 points. The other three Heat starters combined for 14. While the Heat still have two opportunities to close out the series, they need to find an answer for the reinvigorated Celtics offense.

Of course, Toronto is known as the land of <a href="" target="_blank">Drake</a>. However, to boil the city down to just Drizzy would be a mistake. Artists like Pressa have kept the scene going for a very long time. The young star has even received co-signs from Drake, which just goes to show how solid of an artist he is. For years, he has been dropping an array of tracks, projects, and amazing collaborations. Off the top of our heads, we always think back <a href="" target="_blank">to the success of "Attachments," which featured burgeoning</a> superstar Coi Leray. Now, Pressa has signed with RCA Records, and he is looking to take his career to the next level. With more fans waiting on new music than ever before, the Toronto native has been hard at work. It's been a while since we have seen a new single from him, although today, he made sure to change that. Below, you can find the lyric video for his brand-new single "Unfollow Me." The song has no features and showcases exactly what Pressa can do on the mic. Pressa Is Back With A New Song <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> With this track, we get some upbeat yet hard production that allows Pressa to truly shine. Overall, he delivers aggressive yet confident flows with braggadocios lyrics. He has a unique voice, and he is not afraid to use that to his advantage here. That said, longtime fans of Pressa are going to appreciate this effort. The same can be said for new listeners who may just be getting into him for the first time. Hopefully, Pressa will turn around with more new music soon. He is a fun and interesting new voice in the rap world, and fans want to hear more. Let us know what you think of the track, down below.

Overall, his cypher with 21 Savage, <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Uzi Vert</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Denzel Curry</a>, and <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Yachty</a> was legendary. However, since that time, he has been able to keep up the success. He has released a plethora of hit albums and has a ton of massive songs to boot. Moreover, last year, he was hit with the ultimate co-sign as <a href="" target="_blank">Kendrick Lamar</a> put him on Mr. Morale &amp; The Big Steppers. Needless to say, Kodak Black is a massive artist with millions of adoring fans. These supporters are always waiting to hear what he is going to do next. Although he doesn't always give updates, we did get some information last week. <a href="" target="_blank">Kodak revealed to fans that Pistolz &amp; Pearlz</a> would be released today. If you checked your streaming service of choice this morning, you would have noticed that he delivered on this promise. Kodak Black Blesses His Fans <center><b><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" width="73" height="73" border="0" /></a> <a href="" target="_blank">Listen on Spotify</a></b></center> This project is quite the undertaking as it has 21 tracks is over an hour long. Although the front half of the album has a lot of features, Kodak Black takes on the majority of the songs by himself. This is especially true on the back half of the track. That said, Kodak gives us a plethora of different sounds and there is no doubt that he continues to grow as an artist. Overall, this is yet another solid effort from Kodak Black. Whether or not his fans agree, still remains to be seen. Let us know what you think of this album, in the comments section below.

Although, his standing in the music world is certainly controversial. Throughout his young career, he was hit with allegations of abuse. Consequently, there are many who refuse to listen to his music. Overall, it is easy to see why people would feel this way. However, <a href="" target="_blank">it would be disingenuous not to point out that he also has millions of fans.</a> Unfortunately, any mention of his alleged transgressions will subsequently lead to an angry mob of these same fans coming after you. With that being said, XXXTentacion's estate is still preoccupied with coming out with new tracks every now and then. Although some people are upset about posthumous music, it still keeps happening with X. However, the latest release to come from the deceased artist is not a new album or a new song. In fact, it is a song from 2015 that had just never hit streaming before. Of course, we are talking about "let's pretend we're numb." XXXTentacion Pours His Heart Out <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Overall, this is yet another XXXTentacion track in which he truly puts his thoughts, feelings, and emotions on full display. The young artist had a range of styles. Sometimes, he could go into a full-on hardcore punk cadence, while other times he would sing. However, on this track, he just dropped bars, almost as if it we're a freestyle. Not to mention, at barely 90 seconds in length, this was yet another short cut from the artist. For now, there doesn't seem to be any plans for more posthumous releases. In the eyes of some fans, that is probably a good thing. Either way, you can now enjoy this old track on your favorite streaming service. Let us know what you think of "let's pretend we're numb," in the comments section below.

In a recent Twitter video, Moneybagg Yo <a href="" target="_blank">shared some unfortunate news</a> for those waiting for the new mixtape. He had just found out about the <a href="" target="_blank">Taylor Swift</a> remix featuring Ice Spice that was scheduled to release today as well. Sitting in his red sports car, he played Taylor Swift's music loudly, singing along before delivering the news. Moneybagg expressed his love for Taylor Swift. Because of his love for her, he decided to push back the release of his album Hard To Love by a few days. He asked his fans to be patient and let Taylor have her moment. With that, Moneybagg continued singing alone and drove away from the camera's view. While this may disappoint some fans, it shows a kind act of solidarity towards another artist. Moreover, the delay might give Ari Fletcher more <a href="" target="_blank">time to prepare additional videos</a> in anticipation of Moneybagg potentially reaching the number-one position. However, it's not as if Moneybagg is leaving his fans empty-handed. He just released a single called "Ocean Spray," which is the first track on the new mixtape. Bagg Looks Back On His Struggles With Lean <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> After releasing the track along with its <a href="" target="_blank">visually captivating video</a>, Moneybagg Yo took to Twitter to share some personal thoughts. He candidly expressed his previous belief that sobriety would negatively impact his creative process. However, he says he now realizes it was just an issue with his mindset. He mentioned that he has been more productive and that his skin is glowing now that he's sober. He also said he has been consistently releasing impressive music. It appears that Moneybagg Yo has followed through on his plans to get sober. The song itself, however, seems to reminisce about his past when he used to consume lean. "I'm juiced up / Ocean Spray / I'm poured up / Let's drink some more today," Moneybagg raps on the song's chorus. "I'm high now, might float away / If I was outside now / I'm vibed out / new Cartiers hide my eyes now." The song serves as a reminder of how something like an addiction can take precedence over everything else in your life if you let it. What do you think of the new track?

Now, <a href="" target="_blank">he has teamed up</a> with <a href="" target="_blank">Young Thug</a> to amplify the excitement. Last month, the California-born rapper shared a preview of some new music. In an Instagram Live session, Yeat played bits of several new songs, including a fresh track featuring Young Thug. Previously, the pair collaborated on the song "Outsid " from Yeat's 2022 album, 2 Aliv . In the teaser, both rappers delivered their verses over a backdrop of synth pads, snares, bass, and trippy ambiance. The release date for the track remained uncertain for quite some time, but fans were eagerly anticipating their reunion. Unfortunately, any new Young Thug feature is overshadowed by the current negativity in his life. The YSL leader, along with 13 other defendants, is facing substantial RICO charges. The case has garnered significant attention and media coverage for almost a year. In courtroom footage last month, the rapper seemed to display a <a href="" target="_blank">positive attitude and determination</a>. At the time, fans had hoped that things might not be as dire as they seem. Sadly, since then, Young Thug has had several significant <a href="" target="_blank">health scares that ended with hospitalization</a>. Everything seems to be stable for the moment, luckily. At least fans now have something to listen to in the meantime. Yeat And Young Thug Are Showing Off On New Collab <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Yeat and Young Thug have released a flashy new collaboration, "My Wrist." In their synthy, almost lo-fi hip-hop song, the two artists flaunt their wealth. They showcase their opulent lifestyle through extravagant watches and jewelry, hence the track's name. Although Yeat is generally more reserved and keeps to himself, the undeniable chemistry between him and Thug shines through on this boastful track. During the chorus, they invite listeners to admire their wrists, which are presumably adorned with luxurious accessories. "Hand me my bag, she wanna hold the Hannah Montana," Young Thug raps. "Only no tag, they wonder where Miley's at." The song is all about opulence as both Yeat and Young Thug brag about cars, money, and women. It's definitely summer banger material.

For those who haven't heard of Sexyy Red, she is an up-and-coming rapper out of St. Louis. She is rapidly establishing herself as a name to watch, partially because of her collaborations. In recent months, she has collaborated with well-known names in the industry such as <a href="" target="_blank">Summer Walker</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">NLE Choppa</a>, and Kali. Additionally, she has gained significant attention with her own singles, notably the viral hit "Pound Town." Her growing presence in the music industry indicates a potentially promising future. Some may recognize the name Sexyy Red not because of her association with Nicki or other acts but because of two viral lines from the original "Pound Town." The audio and a clip from the music video have been memed to death on TikTok and other social media outlets. "I'm out of town, thuggin' with my rounds," Sexy Redd raps. "My coochie pink, my booty-hole brown." It's not exactly top-tier lyrical genius, but it <a href="" target="_blank">definitely garnered the rapper some attention</a>. Now, the St. Louis rapper has enlisted Nicki Minaj to take things to the next level. "Pound Town 2" Proves That Nicki Can Shine On Anything The Barbz probably wouldn't have expected Nicki Minaj to hop on "Pound Town," but the rap icon sent an email out to her fans explaining the decision. In it, she tells the Barbz how the remix came to be. "I met with Sexyy Red &amp; found her to be so down to earth and sweet," Nicki wrote. "I couldn't hear myself on this song at first but once I let go &amp; decided to just have fun with a bad b!ch, I ended up LOVING how it came out!" The song was already pretty dirty, but the Queen of Rap found clever ways to make it even dirtier with her verse. "I'ma flip like a hundred bricks, get back on my licks / I'm a b*tch, I want fish and grits, throwin' hissy fits," Nicki raps on her verse. "I ain't talkin' about chicken when I jerk it with my t*ts / I be twerkin' on that d*ck, plus, I'm slurpin' every drip." Could this be another summer anthem now that Nicki hopped on it? Let us know what you think in the comments below. <strong>Quotable Lyrics:</strong> Ayo, Red, my name is Pink, I made him go get that ink Let him eat it, pretty p*ssy, now he keep trying to link I-I'm pimpin', pinky ring, his exes is rinky-dink I'm 'bout to pop a thingy then sip on this drinky-drink <center><b><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" width="73" height="73" border="0" /></a> <a href="" target="_blank">Listen on Spotify</a></b></center> via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271183Songs, new song, nicki minaj, pound town 2, remix, sexyy red, Nicki Minaj Jumps On Sexyy Red's "Pounbvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Lil Durk Finally Drops His New Album, "Almost Healed" by itstheboombap0, 26 May 2023 04:06 GMTAfter much anticipation, <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Durk</a> has finally released his new album, Almost Healed. This comes two weeks after the album was delayed during a heated feud between Durk and NBA YoungBoy. The rapper has been building up excitement over the past few months. He has been providing updates and teases, and recently dropped the album's first single, "All My Life" featuring J. Cole. As expected, the single quickly climbed up the Billboard Hot 100. In fact, it matched the performance of Durk's highest-charting single, Drake's "Laugh Now Cry Later." This single gave fans a taste of what they can expect from Almost Healed. The tracklist for Durk's new album is impressive, featuring a notable lineup of guest artists and producers. The inclusion of Kodak Black and <a href="" target="_blank">Future</a> has generated excitement, as their collaborations are likely to become summer anthems. However, what caught people off-guard was the unexpected appearance of <a href="" target="_blank">Alicia Keys</a>. The singer lends her vocals to the project's intro, titled "Therapy Session," which Durk <a href="" target="_blank">previewed in the recent music vide</a>o for "Pelle Coat," the album's second single released prior to its official drop. Lil Durk Takes Us To Therapy In Second Video From "Almost Healed" <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> The music video for Lil Durk's latest single "Pelle Coat"<a href="" target="_blank"> features a powerful introduction</a> by Alicia Keys, who takes on the role of his therapist. Keys encourages Durk to express his vulnerabilities and emotions, creating a safe and non-judgmental space for him to freely share. The video follows Durk through the streets of Chicago, highlighting his friends, significant landmarks like a mural of <a href="" target="_blank">King Von</a>, and showcasing his introspective journey. It captures Durk in the backseat of a Suburban and praying with his father at a Mosque, effectively complementing the song's themes and displaying Durk's artistic maturity. Lil Durk has recently been taking big steps to make positive changes. He wants to not only change himself but also his community. The album represents much of that mindset. That doesn't mean it's totally devoid of bangers, but there is a <a href="" target="_blank">depth to much of it</a>, as well. What do you think about Lil Durk's Almost Healed?

It went on to sell over 63,000 copies in its first week. The album achieved 2x platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in February 2019. It had already sold a million copies by December 2001. DJ Khaled and Nas have collaborated multiple times throughout the years. It makes sense that he would like to have such an important piece of Nas' history. The pair's most recent joint effort was "Sorry Not Sorry" featuring JAY-Z. It was included on Khaled's 2021 project, Khaled Khaled. What do you think of DJ Khaled's reaction to getting the picture? Let us know in the comments below!

R&amp;B, as a genre, boasts many successful Gemini singers. There's no shortage of Gemini talents between the legacy acts written in the history books and the newer, rising stars. Coming in right at the end of the Taurus season, the Gemini season is covered between May 21 and June 21. Every year, fans celebrate many R&amp;B singers that were born during Gemini season. It's a season stacked with some outstanding vocalists, from Lenny Kravitz to Lionel Richie to Maxwell. Here are more major Gemini singers that deserve all the love. Patti LaBelle <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> The Godmother of Soul needs no introduction. Patti LaBelle has been blessing the world with her insane vocals for over 60 years. The multitalented artist kicked off her successful career as the lead singer of Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles. Since then, the powerhouse vocalist and actress has been inspiring generations to come. Patti LaBelle was born on May 24 in 1944. <a href="" target="_blank">Lauryn Hill</a> <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Lauryn Hill has received several honorific titles in her career. However, the one that sticks for most fans is "Queen of Hip Hop." Despite being one of the most <a href="" target="_blank">famous Gemini rappers</a> of all time, she also makes the list of the best R&amp;B singers that share the star sign. Lauryn Hill's contributions to Hip Hop and R&amp;B are magnanimous. She has influenced many established artists today, including Beyonc and <a href="" target="_blank">Nicki Minaj</a>. With a soulful voice equally as bright as her sleek rap tone, Lauryn Hill has always been in a league of her own. Moreover, she was already a showstopper in The Fugees before her outstanding solo career began. She was born on May 26 in 1975. Gladys Knight <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Gladys Knight has been widely referred to as the Empress of Soul. The legendary star has won hearts with her soulful voice since she was young. She became a household name in the '60s as the lead singer of her family group Gladys Knight &amp; The Pips. Consequently, her solo career proved even more of a hit worldwide. One of the most revered Gemini singers, Gladys Knight's music has influenced generations of artists. She was born on May 28. Normani <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Nike LA (@nikela)</a> Normani has achieved superstardom with the girl group Fifth Harmony and as a solo artist. The Atlanta native is known for her musical versatility and incredible dance skills. Her music videos often feature elaborate dance sequences and performances, earning <a href="" target="_blank">her a growing reputation</a>. In a promotional video for <a href="" target="_blank">Nike</a>'s "Conscious Movement" program, the singer referred to the Gemini season as "the best season." However, she cheekily pointed out that she's definitely a little biased as she's a Gemini. Normani's voice was made for R&amp;B, and it's no wonder her fans continue riding with her. She is undoubtedly one of the world's rising Gemini superstars. She was born on May 31 in 1996. Prince <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Prince's legacy will always be monumental. He is one of the most talented artists in music history. His music covered various genres, and he quickly rose to fame with his explosive on-stage persona. Additionally, <a href="" target="_blank">Prince was praised</a> for being a highly skilled multi-instrumentalist. The Grammy and Oscar winner is one of the most influential musicians ever. Moreover, his works are often cited as musical masterpieces, and his stage presence is always a lesson in dedication, energy, and power. The fashion icon and music legend was born on June 7, 1958. For his work on his eleventh studio album, Prince introduced his alter ego Gemini to the world. The album also served as the soundtrack for the 1989 film Batman. In the music videos for the songs "Batdance" and "Partyman," the character donned makeup on one side of his face, referencing the villain Joker. The other half was bare, referencing the heroic nature of Batman. <a href="" target="_blank">Faith Evans</a> <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Faith Evans dominated the late '90s with the albums Faith and Keep the Faith. Both records went Platinum and put the singer in the limelight. Despite a troubled <a href="" target="_blank">relationship with The Notorious B.I.G.</a>, she honored him with the song "I'll Be Missing You." The Grammy-winning tribute became one of her signature songs. Besides her music career, Faith Evans has starred in several shows in the reality TV genre. Another one of many talented Gemini singers, Faith Evans is R&amp;B royalty. She was born on June 10. Jorja Smith <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Jorja Smith is one of the UK's most appreciated R&amp;B exports. Known for her relaxed singing style, Jorja Smith has captivated audiences with her vocals. She has ventured into trip-hop and grime, all while maintaining her signature style.

In addition to this exciting news, he generated anticipation among his fans by <a href="" target="_blank">teasing another album</a> currently in the works, which he plans to release later this year. Now the self-proclaimed "<a href="" target="_blank">Motion God</a>," the rapper has been effectively building anticipation through captivating teasers shared online. In a separate Instagram post, Moneybagg Yo openly shared insights into the inspiration behind this mixtape, which serves as a continuation of his Heartless series. Meanwhile, Ari Fletcher, MoneyBagg Yo's girlfriend,<a href="" target="_blank"> playfully hinted at the possibility</a> of launching an OnlyFans account but with a condition attached. She expressed that she would only pursue the idea if MoneyBagg's highly anticipated mixtape attains top-ranking status on the charts. To further encourage fans to support the rapper, Ari Fletcher took to Twitter and disclosed her intentions to create an OnlyFans account once the mixtape reaches the coveted number-one position. She even revealed that she has already prepared her first video for it. However, it looks like fans might have to wait a little longer for the mixtape and for Ari Fletcher's OnlyFans debut. Moneybagg Bumps Taylor In His Car During Announcement Ima Let My Baby <a href="" target="_blank">@taylorswift13</a> Drop Tonight New Date "Hard To Love" June 2nd FRIDAY ! <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; SPEAK (@MoneyBaggYo) <a href="" target="_blank">May 25, 2023</a> Moneybagg Yo just posted a video to Twitter with some not-so-great news for his fans. Apparently, he just found out about the <a href="" target="_blank">Taylor Swift</a> remix featuring Ice Spice that's dropping tonight. In the video, the rapper sits in his red sports car blasting Taylor and singing along. Then, he delivers the bad news. "I just got the news my little baby Taylor dropping tonight. I ain't gonna lie, y'all know how I feel about Taylor, man," Moneybagg said. "So I think I'm gonna push Hard To Love back just a few days, y'all be patient with me. Let Taylor have this sh*t." With that, Moneybagg starts singing alone again and speeds off out of the view of the camera. This isn't great news for fans of the rapper, but it is a kind show of solidarity for a fellow artist. It might even give Ari Fletcher time to work on a few more videos to have ready for the possibility of Moneybagg hitting number one. What do you think of Moneybagg's decision to delay the mixtape release? Let us know in the comments below.

On Monday, an individual, evidently not a fan of the West Coast icon, took to Twitter to criticize Cube. They claimed that he only appeared "every four years" to encourage black people to vote for Republicans who "openly suppress the black vote." Spotting the tweet, Cube swiftly fired back at the criticism. "I never told yo' Black ass who to vote for," the rapper said. "So stop lying and get that 'click bait' out'cha mouth." Over the years, <a href="" target="_blank">the former</a> <a href="" target="_blank">N.W.A.</a> rapper has been actively involved in political matters. In 2020, Ice Cube faced intense scrutiny when Katrina Pierson, an advisor to Donald Trump's campaign, publicly acknowledged his assistance. Apparently, he took part in the former president's Platinum Plan. Subsequently, Cube had to do damage control by confirming his collaboration with Trump. However, he was <a href="" target="_blank">aiming to advance his Contract With Black America</a> (CWBA) initiative. <strong>Read More:<a href="" target="_blank"> Ice Cube's Greatest Acting Roles</a></strong> Ice Cube Will Work With Whoever He Needs To In Order To Help The Black Community At that time, Cube tweeted, "Let me get this straight, I get the president of the United States to agree to put over half a trillion dollars of capital in the Black Community (without an endorsement) and n***as are mad at me? Have a nice life." Despite the backlash, Cube later revealed that he was approached by Joe Biden's camp after Biden's victory in the 2020 election. The new president was seeking his support in implementing the CWBA initiative. Cube emphasized that the ultimate goal was to pressure candidates to incorporate elements of his plan, which received widespread agreement, into their agendas. In addition to his ties with Republicans, Ice Cube has faced <a href="" target="_blank">longstanding accusations of antisemitism</a>. He has been an outspoken supporter of Louis Farrakhan, a prominent religious leader known for <a href="" target="_blank">his antisemitic views</a>. In 2015, Cube was accused of allegedly instructing his entourage to assault a rabbi. Moreover, <a href="" target="_blank">during the peak of the pandemic in 2020</a>, Cube drew criticism for sharing memes that implied Jewish people were responsible for causing disruptions in the country. Cube defended these memes, referring to them as "pro-Black." What do you think of Ice Cube's response to the troll? Let us know in the comments!

For the most part, a few comments on Twitter or Instagram can galvanize the timeline into a frenzy, especially when its legendary rap figures are at the center of the controversy. While Rick Ross hasn't necessarily traded bars with any of his foes recently, he's added to his list of beefs after <a href="" target="_blank">trading shots with DJ Envy</a>. Last weekend, the two began trading shots over their competing car shows. Things escalated rapidly for a few days. What began as slight jabs on social media transformed into <a href="" target="_blank">a war of words</a> where DJ Envy would dress up as a correctional officer to mock Ross' previous career path. In response, Rozay turned up the hostility by mentioning The Breakfast Club host's wife - an evident sore spot, as we've seen with Desus &amp; Mero.&nbsp; Fortunately, there's always room for forgiveness (at least, we hope). In his autobiography, Hurricanes, he revealed tension between him and DJ Khaled that began when he put up $1,000 for a Terror Squad chain belonging to the DJ. His reason? "Dissing Khaled and everybody else was my way of trying to get something going," Ross said. Of course, that feud didn't last long; these days, they comically debate the origins of almond milk. In the wake of Ross' latest feud with DJ Envy, we decided to dive into some of Rick Ross' biggest beefs that rattled the rap world. Although many of his feuds deserve to be unpacked by themselves, we're briefly breaking down Ross's issues with other figures in pop culture. Birdman&nbsp; LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 25: Recording artist Birdman speaks during the Genius Talks sponsored by AT&amp;T during the 2016 BET Experience on June 25, 2016 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Jerod Harris/BET/Getty Images for BET) Thanks to Rick Ross, "idols become rivals" became cemented in hip-hop jargon due to his issues with Birdman. Now, there were a few moments that <a href="" target="_blank">led to their feud</a>. For starters, Drake and Meek Mill's beef blew up, leading to the infamous bars in 2015's "Color Money," where Ross raps, "I got more money than that pussy that you're signed to." Birdman ultimately brushed it off, feigning ignorance of Ross' motives before the MMG boss came out the gates swinging with "Idols Become Rivals," where he finally addressed the root of their issues. It was not only Birdman's dealings with Lil Wayne but also his friend DJ Khaled during his Cash Money stint that left a bad taste in Ross' mouth. Ultimately, the issues appear to be water under the bridge, as neither Birdman nor Rick Ross has addressed the matter further. "Freeway" Ricky Ross <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> ATLANTA, GA - FEBRUARY 01: "Freeway" Rick Ross (L) attends the Super Bowl LIII Power Of Influence Awards at Coco Studios on February 1, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Johnny Nunez/WireImage) Rick "Freeway" Ross, the reformed drug kingpin, sued the Miami rapper Rick Ross for using his name without permission. In a $10M filing, Freeway accused Ross of copyright infringement for<a href="" target="_blank"> using his moniker as a rap name</a>. Although Rick Ross seemingly denied knowing about the notorious drug trafficker, the reference was undoubtedly evident, especially for a rapper who continues to namedrop drug lords as a benchmark of wealth. Ultimately, a judge ruled in the rapper's favor. 50 Cent <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="" title="" /></div> NEW YORK, NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 10: Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson attends WE TV's "Hip Hop Homicides" New York Premiere at Crosby Street Hotel on November 10, 2022 in New York City. (Photo by Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images) The <a href="" target="_blank">long-standing issues </a>between Rick Ross and 50 Cent stand among the pettiest of beefs in recent rap history. Apparently, 50 Cent looked at Rick Ross the wrong way at an event, although Fif denied ever seeing the Miami rapper. However, things only worsened when Ross released "Mafia Music," where he dissed 50 Cent. In response, 50 unloaded "Officer Ricky (Go Head, Try Me)." For over a decade, the two continued to throw shots at each other - through social media and diss tracks - while dragging other affiliates into the issue. As 50 stated on "Warning Shot," "I'mma f*ck your life up for fun," vowing to use his resources to make Ross' life miserable. He followed through on the promise once he dragged the mother of Ross' child into the equation, who confirmed Ross' past as a correctional officer. In addition, 50 Cent also began to aim at DJ Khaled while <a href="" target="_blank">members of G-Unit</a>, namely Lloyd Banks and <a href="" target="_blank">Tony Yayo</a>, piled on. Eventually, Meek became involved when he defended Ross on 4/4 EP. Rick Ross and 50 Cent still haven't resolved their issues, nor will they ever. Both have seemingly made peace with the idea of taking this one to the grave. Jeezy <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="" title="" /></div> NEW YORK, NEW YORK - AUGUST 21: Rapper Jeezy visits Sway In The Morning with host Sway Calloway at SiriusXM Studios on August 21, 2019 in New York City. (Photo by Roy Rochlin/Getty Images) What began as a shout-out to America's biggest kingpin became one of the most explosive beefs in Rick Ross' career. Rick Ross hit single "BMF" appeared on the Albert Anastasia EP before landing on Teflon Don. However, the song's success seemingly spurred tension between the two parties. When Jeezy released his remix of the record - including a cameo from Big Meech himself - fans dug deeper into the line, "How you blowin' money fast, you don't know the crew? Oh, you part of the fam, sh*t I never knew." Although Jeezy and Ross denied issues, things began to bubble following several subliminal shots. Ross released "The Summer's Mine," containing what seemed to be a slight jab at Jeezy. However, the ATL rapper later returned fire in an interview shot in the streets of Miami. Despite being signed to the same label (Def Jam), it seemed that no industry executive had the pull to put their issues to rest. The two rappers ran into each other at the BET Awards in 2012, where their crews got into a physical fight. Rumor has it that <a href="" target="_blank">G-Unit</a> was also involved in the melee.&nbsp; Eventually, the two rappers put their differences aside and joined forces on 2014's "War Ready," ending their long-standing issues. Ironically, Rick Ross, who received a few shots from then CTE-signee <a href="" target="_blank">Freddie Gibbs</a> at the time, recently said that he wanted to help the Atlanta rapper and the Gary, IN MC patch things up with one another.&nbsp; Gillie Da King <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image4"><img id="bvimg4" src="" title="" /></div> NEW YORK, NEW YORK - AUGUST 23: <a href="" target="_blank">Gillie Da Kid</a> spotted at 'Bike Rides for Black Lives', a 16-mile bike ride from Chinatown to Harlem supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement on August 23, 2020 in New York City. (Photo by Steven Ferdman/Getty Images) In recent years, Rick Ross has found more value in trolling his adversaries online than on wax. Such as the case of DJ Envy, Rick Ross found himself trading barbs with Gillie Da King. Ross called Gillie a "fraud" following the podcast host's run-in with his former adversary, Lil Wayne, at Jackson State University.&nbsp; During Southside's interview on Million Dollaz Worth Of Game, Gillie slammed older rappers who resort to social media antics to regain their footing in the culture. However, Gillie specifically began mentioning Ross' collection of cows before resorting to the correctional officer jabs. In response, Ross said he spends more monthly money on his cows than Gillie does on his family. Eventually, Ross joked about joining the podcast circuit as a direct competitor to Million Dollaz Worth Of Game. Gillie then suggested Rozay call his podcast the "Mickey Mouse Show." Sure, it lacks originality, but it seemingly silenced their online beef. Tory Lanez <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image5"><img id="bvimg5" src="" title="" /></div> NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 27: Tory Lanez discusses his creative process during BMI's How I Wrote That Song 2018 on January 27, 2018 in New York City. (Photo by Roy Rochlin/Getty Images for BMI) While some of Rick Ross' beefs have been nothing short of petty, his <a href="" target="_blank">tirade against Tory Lanez</a> appeared to come from a good place. A day after a Kentucky jury declined to charge the officers involved in Breonna Taylor's murder, Tory Lanez released Daystar. This album attempted to clear his name from allegations surrounding <a href="" target="_blank">Megan Thee Stallion</a>'s shooting. "Tory Lanez, poor decision brother," Ross said. "Dropping that project... Just outta respect for Breonna Taylor, bruh, we gotta respect these sisters. That ain't how you address the accusations you are facing. That was a poor choice, homie. You ain't getting no money with that shit." While Tory claimed that Ross wasn't even attending the protests for Breonna Taylor in Miami, the MMG Boss refuted that the Canadian rapper only showed his support because the rally passed by his home. Following a few more shots between the two, Ross offered a SmartCar to Tory Lanez - an apparent jab at the I Told You rapper's height. Eventually, the two linked up and squashed their beef while Ross began promoting his annual car show at the Promised Land. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271163Beef, Features, Music, Original Content, 50 Cent, Birdman, DJ Envy, feuds, jeezy, Rick Ross' Biggestblogs/5-2023/271163-rick-ross-biggest-b-s.jpg1Moneybagg Yo Reacts To Ari Fletcher's OnlyFans Announcement by itstheboombap0, 25 May 2023 21:53 GMTMoneybagg Yo recently took to social media to reveal the forthcoming release of his next project. The new effort is titled Hard To Love: Heartless Edition. The mixtape is set to be unveiled tonight at midnight. Additionally, he created excitement among his fans by <a href="" target="_blank">dropping hints on Instagram</a> about another album in progress. According to him, it will also be released this year. The rapper, AKA the "<a href="" target="_blank">Motion God</a>," has been steadily increasing anticipation through intriguing teasers posted online. In a separate Instagram post, Moneybagg Yo candidly shared insights into the inspiration behind this tape. It serves as a continuation of his Heartless series. Ari Fletcher, MoneyBagg Yo's girlfriend, <a href="" target="_blank">playfully alluded to the idea</a> of launching an OnlyFans account, but with a catch. She stated that she would only proceed with the plan if MoneyBagg's highly anticipated mixtape achieves top-ranking status on the charts. To further incentivize fans to support the rapper, Ari Fletcher took to Twitter and revealed her intentions to create an OnlyFans account once the mixtape reaches the number one position. She even mentioned that she has already prepared her first video. Now, Moneybagg is responding to his girlfriend's offer. Moneybagg Is A Supportive Boyfriend <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by justin_credible (@justin_credible)</a> Moneybagg Yo responded to Ari Fletcher's intentions to launch an OnlyFans account and appeared to express strong support for the concept. During an interview with Power 106, the Memphis rapper acknowledged that it wasn't his place to dictate Fletcher's decisions. However, he tried to offer the same support to her. Moneybagg made sure to emphasize that his fans should back his project if they desire to witness her presence on OnlyFans. "Y'all better run it up," he said. "Y'all better run it on up, man. You wanna see this OnlyFans, man? Run it up... She already locked and loaded man. I believe it. I know what's up man." Moneybagg's new mixtape is set to drop tonight at midnight. When he announced it on social media, the rapper went into the meaning of the album to him. "Yooo, I know it's been a minute. I miss y'all more than y'all miss me," Moneybagg said in his post. "When I came up with the title Hard 2 Love I was referring to myself, but when I started working more on the project, I realized that it's more than me being hard to love. It's hard to love people because a lot of them don't have good intentions. Just want something from you. It's hard to love your life when the same people that you sacrifice everything for don't even get to enjoy the rewards with you. Through it all my biggest source of strength is my fans. I appreciate all of y'all equally."

The <a href="" target="_blank">default answer is N.W.A</a>. Featuring <a href="" target="_blank">Ice Cube</a>, Eazy-E, <a href="" target="_blank">Dr. Dre</a>, DJ Yella, MC Ren, and several others, their high-octane raps took over the hip-hop world behind tracks such as "F**k Da Police." However, <a href="" target="_blank">N.W.A.</a> wasn't the only group stamping a lasting impact on the West Coast hip hop scene. Adjacent to N.W.A., you had the MC Eiht-led Compton's Most Wanted. While many claim that Compton's Most Wanted was impersonating the commercially recognized N.W.A., MC Eiht, Boom Bam, DJ Mike, DJ Slip, and Tha Chill were actually recording demos before N.W.A. had released their debut album. It's 1985, and crime is running rampant through Compton. During that time, a 15-year-old MC Eiht was brainstorming ways to let loose the violent emotions of his chaotic childhood. He formed a duo with Tha Chill, embarking on a journey that began with writing raps and recording demo tapes when the two weren't immersed in street culture. However, the duo's full-time job remained on the violent streets of Compton. Selling crack to survive, Compton's Most Wanted was forced to grow up fast. Compton's Most Wanted Didn't Replicate N.W.A <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> MC Eiht and Tha Chill had begun dabbling with scratched hip-hop beats. However, it would take the two taking notice of N.W.A's financial success to be inspired to pursue rap seriously. After recording music for a few years, the two garnered attention from The Unknown DJ. He was immediately intrigued by the duo's unique chemistry and laid-back flow. Their momentum would continue to build over the next three years, leading to their debut project, It's a Compton Thang! Feeling a need to prove themselves as rappers, the group primarily boasted about their skills on the mic throughout the album. Even if they were following in the <a href="" target="_blank">footsteps of N.W.A.</a>, Compton's Most Wanted's sound was very much distinctive. The unique screams or growls from other West Coast MCs weren't heard in their sound. Instead, producers DJ Slip and The Unknown DJ were focused on curating a smooth collection of funk jams. The project's highlight was "Late Night Hype," solidifying the group plenty of recognition throughout the West Coast scene. The group would follow up their debut with Straight Checkn 'Em and Music to Driveby, with "Hood Took Me Under" becoming one of their most successful tracks to date. They Intricately Rapped Over Funk-Based Beats <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> However, Compton Most Wanted's influence went beyond their numbers. Their most successful project peaked at No. 66 on the U.S. Charts. In essence, MC Eiht and Tha Chill walked so that future Compton MCs could run. Implementing a more relaxed style into the West Coast scene helped solidify the sentiment that West Coast hip-hop was more than the sound of N.W.A. Rather than Compton raps being a sub-genre of hip-hop, Compton Most Wanted helped make Southern Los Angeles the crown jewel of experimentation and creative expression in the hip-hop world. This isn't to say that Compton Most Wanted was creating blissful music in a time of violence and chaos. MC Eiht was still painfully in-tune with the world around him, telling bloody tales of blacktop warfare. On No Jumper, he stated, "It basically gave a way of expressing what I saw on the daily. Now, did I think it was going to transform me to star status? I never looked at it like that." He approached topics such as redlining and the militarization of police with a sense of intimate sorry rather than utter outrage. While he was still a self-described menace to society through his lyricism, executing that narrative on an Isaac Hayes sample opened up the future of hip-hop in the area. That contrast would later appear in projects such as Compton's modern-day star <a href="" target="_blank">Kendrick Lamar</a>'s Good Kid, m.A.A.d City. They Released Their Last Album Gangsta Bizness In 2019 <center><b><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" width="73" height="73" border="0" /></a> <a href="" target="_blank">Listen on Spotify</a></b></center> Compton's Most Wanted are the unsung heroes of West Coast hip-hop. With MC Eiht as their frontman and star, the overall proved that potent messaging could exist without aggressiveness. While N.W.A. were screaming out their rage at the corporations and establishments around them, Compton's Most Wanted had a potent storytelling impact without all of the rage. As a result, future generations of West Coast MCs were approaching their sonic direction in a more broad-minded manner. Ultimately, Compton's Most Wanted's success would propel frontman MC Eiht into a successful solo career. While Tha Chill was in prison for two years during the group's run, he would eventually return while developing his solo career. By the early 2000s, the group was no longer consistently creating music.

Moreover, the Harris County District Attorney's Office confirmed that authorities officially charged Clark on Thursday morning (May 25). The <a href="" target="_blank">Migos</a> rapper, real name Kirsnick Khari Ball, died on November 1 in a <a href="" target="_blank">shooting</a> outside of a private bowling alley party that left two other individuals injured. Previously, much speculation surged in the media concerning Clark's whereabouts, status under officials who arrested him, and other factors in the case. Now, it seems like a formal trial will follow suit and finally give the MC's loved ones at least some sort of closure and peace. Furthermore, police confirmed their <a href="" target="_blank">arrest</a> of Clark back in December of 2022. Since then, not much came out concerning his status, especially after authorities <a href="" target="_blank">released him on a $1 million bond</a>. Before that, officials set bond at $2 million, and his release became odder when news broke that neither his family nor Clark himself put up the money for his freedom. "A <a href="" target="_blank">concerned citizen</a> and family friend who believes in Patrick's innocence posted the bond on his behalf," his attorney Letitia D. Quinones told KTVU News. "Like any other defendant, Patrick is presumed to be innocent and has the right to bond. He also has an obligation to comply with all the terms the court has laid out." <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Is Takeoff Actually Quavo's Nephew?</a> Murder Suspect In Takeoff's Case Formally Charged <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by DJ Akademiks (@akademiks)</a> Meanwhile, reports also emerged that Clark sought to <a href="" target="_blank">claim self-defense</a> in the case. "We feel comfortable that when the time is right that Mr. Clark will have a valid and meritorious claim for self-defense," one of his lawyers reportedly stated according to the Associated Press. In addition, Clark <a href="" target="_blank">vowed to move in with his parents</a> in court, amid efforts to reduce his bail and fight back against beliefs that he was a flight risk. After all, he reportedly <a href="" target="_blank">tried to flee to Mexico</a> and get an <a href="" target="_blank">emergency passport</a> before his arrest for Takeoff's murder. While this is promising news for justice, the Migo's legacy lives on in much more important ways through his loved ones, fans, collaborators, and family alike. <a href="" target="_blank">Offset</a>'s new album will feature <a href="" target="_blank">his last Takeoff collaboration</a>, whereas Quave dedicated his next project <a href="" target="_blank">Rocket Power</a> to him as well. The rap world waits for Clark's fate, but they will never hesitate to keep Take's legacy alive.

It has especially come to a head in the playoffs. <a href="" target="_blank">A betting platform offered a $1000 giveaway for every time Joel Embiid flopped in Game 6</a> of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Celtics. Elsewhere, <a href="" target="_blank">Draymond Green called Jamal Murray "soft" for a flagrant foul called against De'Angelo Russell</a>. Furthermore, the flopping problem has reached a tipping point for many fans, who see it plus the current epidemic of hair-trigger foul calls to be a combination that could cripple the league. It appears that the league is aware of this, and is considering a new rule to address it. Previously, the league implemented a fine policy ahead of the 2012-13 season. Flopping Could Soon Earn A Charge LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - MAY 08: Head coach Steve Kerr of the Golden State Warriors gestures against the Los Angeles Lakers during the first quarter in game four of the Western Conference Semifinal Playoffs at Arena on May 08, 2023 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images) First reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic, the league is exploring the possibility of implementing a punishment for flopping. According to Charania, the NBA is considering testing a rule change to implement a technical free throw for the charge of "flopping". Furthermore, this could be tested as early as the Las Vegas Summer League in June. The proposed change comes a few weeks after Steve Kerr publicly begged the NBA to address the issue. "I think, to me, what I've learned coaching in FIBA ... There's a flop rule. If a referee deems a player has flopped, they just call it a technical foul, and it's pretty penalizing. And so the flopping has basically been eliminated from FIBA, and we have the ability to do the same thing in the NBA if we want. I think we should address it, because the players are so smart, and the entire regular season is about gamesmanship and trying to fool the refs. And this is how it's been for a while, and it's up to us as a league. Do we want to fix this? ... These are all things that are my personal plea to the NBA. I think we can do better in terms of cleaning up the flopping. In the meantime, I give the Lakers credit for the plays that they've been able to sell."

Of course, he's an incredibly prolific artist, but the 29-year-old Rochester native boasts much more than a seemingly endless body of work. Neph is a bizarre storyteller, a hilarious presence lyrically and delivery-wise, master of off-beat and ramble flows, and is able to broach harsh topics of paranoia, violence, hardship, and identity through some of the nuttiest, most vivid, and most tough-as-nails verses and beats you'll hear. All that said, that fact that <a href="" target="_blank">Rihanna</a> might have introduced you to him is an insane possibility, yet that's exactly what she did with her latest TikTok. Moreover, RiRi's latest contribution on the social media platform is a simple POV clip of her walking. But there's one big factor that steals the show- well, two, if you count the huge diamond ring on one of her toes. Still, <a href="" target="_blank">diamond flexes are nothing new</a> for the "Diamonds" singer. The TikTok's audio is RXKNephew's track "I Love My Girlfriend." On that track, he takes joy in the fact that his girlfriend is apparently just as wild as he is. "My girlfriend like robbin' n***as," he raps in various voices over a jittery trap beat. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Rihanna Net Worth 2023: What Is The Megastar Worth?</a> Rihanna Cosigns RXKNephew With Latest TikTok <a href="" target="_blank">@rihanna</a> quiet luxury <a href="" target="_blank">? original sound - Rihanna</a> With Rihanna's new album still nowhere to be seen, a collab with RXKNephew (however unlikely) would be an absolute ankle breaker, and we won't give up on the possibility until it lands. In addition, this opens up a whole lot of questions on whether they've met, how she came across the song, or how she found his work in general. After all, A$AP Rocky is from New York, as well, and he's surely still in tune with much of the underground scene. In any case, if the work of Neph and similar artists like Zelooperz, frequent collaborator Rx Papi, and other is unknown to you, let this TikTok be a sign that there's some homework on your desk. Meanwhile, the Barbadian singer also showed love to the New York hip-hop of the past as of late. Well, the <a href="" target="_blank">Wu-Tang Clan</a> is so influential and beloved that it's pretty much always hip-hop of the present. The couple <a href="" target="_blank">named their son</a> <a href="" target="_blank">RZA</a> after the legendary producer and continued a tradition in Rocky's family of honoring rap pioneers.

He just released his latest single, "On My Soul," with <a href="" target="_blank">Nas</a> and Jacob Banks for <a href="" target="_blank">the new film that he also stars in</a>, Transformers: Rise of the Beast. The eccentric Houston rapper has had multiple breakout years, widening his exposure in hip hop while collaborating with high-profile artists. His repertoire continues to grow as he now transitions into acting. Nwigwe is quite active, releasing five full-length compilations of loose singles released during his Get Twisted Sundays music series, and also has multiple EPs and live recordings. Everywhere you see Tobe Nwigwe, you see his wife, Martica "Fat" Nwigwe, who appears alongside Tobe in his songs, in his music videos, and at his live shows. With the help of his wife, Tobe Nwigwe has slowly become one of hip hop's latest exciting artists that have carved his own lane. Keeping It In The Family <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Tobe Nwigwe and his wife Fat have been together since the start of his career and now have four children together. Their friend and producer, LaNell Grant, was one of their longtime collaborators, producing most of Tobe's beats before they parted ways in 2022. On every single cover from their Originals music series, Fat and LaNell appear on the cover, as well as in every music video. The outro track on one of his breakout albums, Fouriginals, is titled "For Family Only" and features commentary from Tobe, Fat, and their loved ones. With his wife, children, and close friends by his side, family is clearly an essential part of who Tobe is, and a key component of his musical identity. A Signature Sound &amp; Look <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Aside from the family aspect of his music, Tobe Nwigwe's sound and look set him apart from his contemporaries. His image and signature sound are distinct, as one can see in his music videos and live performances, and in the actual music itself. Musically, he takes inspiration from his Nigerian heritage. Tobe Nwigwe also continues the lineage of traditional Southern rap, paying homage to his <a href="" target="_blank">hometown of Houston</a> and collaborating with many iconic Southern artists. Religion also plays a major part in Tobe's sound as he incorporates his Christian faith into his lyrics. The family has developed their brand and image with the color mint as they consistently wear it in music videos and performances. The artists featured in their music videos also stick to the style of clothing as Tobe brings his guests into his musical world. The visuals are an important part of Tobe Nwigwe's career, as his videos display his unique artistry. Pandemic Breakthrough <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> With each Originals album release, Tobe Nwigwe has grown in popularity but reached new heights during the pandemic. His song, "I Need You To (Breonna Taylor)," went viral in 2020 during the height of the <a href="" target="_blank">Black Lives Matter protests</a> as the song advocates for the arrest of Breonna Taylor's killers. The song was a part of his Pandemic Project, which also consisted of one of his most popular songs, "Try Jesus." These viral moments led to numerous cosigns and collaborations from many notable hip hop artists, including Royce Da 5'9", Black Thought, <a href="" target="_blank">Bun B</a>, and <a href="" target="_blank">Big K.R.I.T.</a> These rappers appeared alongside Tobe Nwigwe and his wife on Cincoriginals, his biggest album to date. Tobe Nwigwe's Recent Mainstream Success <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Following Cincoriginals and several other collaborations and cosigns, Tobe Nwigwe has reached a new level of notoriety. He has performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, an NPR's Tiny Desk Concert, and various festivals, including Coachella and <a href="" target="_blank">Pharrell</a>'s Something in the Water Festival. Nwigwe was also nominated for Best New Artist at the 2023 Grammy Awards. Furthermore, he also contributed a song to the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack. The recent success of Tobe Nwigwe has led to him branching outside of music, landing roles in the Netflix series Mo and the new Transformers: Rise of the Beast film, which includes his latest single with Nas on the soundtrack. Tobe Nwigwe and his wife have also recently collaborated with Pharrell, CeeLo Green, and <a href="" target="_blank">2 Chainz</a>.

On May 14, Morant was suspended by the Memphis Grizzlies pending an NBA investigation. The day before, a video of Morant flashing a gun on Instagram Live had gone viral. It was the second time in 2023 that Morant had pulled such a stunt. In March, he had been suspended for eight games after flashing a gun on Instagram Live while at a Denver strip club. Morant issued an apology that rang hollow with many fans. Furthermore, his apology was only released after NBA Commissioner Adam Silver publicly spoke about the video. On May 24, a <a href="" target="_blank">cryptic post on Instagram from Morant prompted a police welfare check</a>. The NBA is yet to announce a punishment for Morant. However, league insiders expect it to be lengthy. Jalen Green Trolls Gun Incident WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 09: Jalen Green #4 of the Houston Rockets reacts against the Washington Wizards during the first half at Capital One Arena on April 9, 2023 in Washington, DC. (Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images) Jalen Green took to Instagram Live on Wednesday, engaging with followers while driving and listening to NBA YoungBoy. The similarities to Morant's infamous video were already apparent, but the YoungBoy, intentional or not, sold it for many fans. Morant is a massive YoungBoy fan, and has adopted the lyric "It's a parade inside my city" as his unofficial motto. "Don't flash no gun," one follower said as another added, "Don't pull a Ja and pull the gun out." "Everybody's commenting, 'Don't pull no pistol out,'" Green told another person in the car. "They wildin', my n***a, man. I don't got no gun." Green is one of the young stars on a slowly rebuilding Houston Rockets team. Skipping college for the G League, Green was drafted second overall in 2021. The Rockets currently hold the fourth overall pick in the 2023 draft as they continue to try and return to contention in the NBA. However, the incident clearly shows that Green knows how to have a little bit of fun. Follow all the latest sports news here at HotNewHipHop.

Even more unsurprising, somehow, was <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Nas X</a>'s humorous satire of the whole ordeal. Moreover, the superstar took to Twitter to let out a parody tweet imitating the backlash to people complaining about "the rainbow agenda" and "the woke mob" and what have you. Unfortunately, right-wing threats actually prompted the store to pull back on its campaign. Maybe they should take a page out of Montero's book and see it for the ridiculous bawling that it is. "Can't believe target is supporting this nonsense" Lil <a href="" target="_blank">Nas</a> X tweeted. "I'm never shopping there again, my son is not "too cool for school" these shirts are ridiculous. He is going to school and he WILL learn." Of course, this is far from the first time that the Georgia native made fun of overblown LGBTQIA+ backlash. Recently, he <a href="" target="_blank">clapped back</a> at Woah Vicky claiming that he's faking his sexuality by referring to her as <a href="" target="_blank">Ja Rule</a>. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Lil Nas X's Most Streamed Songs</a> Lil Nas X Trolls People Mad At Target's Pride Month Campaign can't believe target is supporting this nonsense, im never shopping there again, my son is not "too cool for school" these shirts are ridiculous. he is going to school and he WILL learn. &mdash; pussy (@LilNasX) <a href="" target="_blank">May 25, 2023</a> However, that's not to imply that the "STAR WALKIN'" rapper and singer never faced <a href="" target="_blank">some pushback of his own</a> for seemingly insensitive comments. Last March, he tweeted: "where do the gays be in africa i wanna come there." It's unclear what intent he had in relaying such message, considering that Uganda had just passed destructive anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation that poses a serious threat to the community. Perhaps Lil Nas X wanted to invite people to express themselves regardless rather than blindly wondering where he could find them. No matter how you look at it, the message certainly didn't land. Meanwhile, that's just one instance among many others where the 24-year-old championed freedom of sexuality. As such, it's much easier for fans to take tweets like his Target parody with a healthier and more inclusive light, unless you're one of the ones offended by it.

He exceeded 30 points in three of the four games against the Lakers, including back-to-back 37-point games. The tighter the Lakers guarded Nikola Joki , the better Murray played. His continued success will be absolutely crucial as the Nuggets turn their attention to the NBA Finals. They will face either the Heat or Celtics, with the Heat currently up 3-1 in the Eastern Conference Finals. However, a months-old interview with Murray is going viral in the wake of his recent success on the court. In a laidback interview while playing NBA 2K, Murray shared his thoughts on who the greatest players to ever the grace the NBA were. While many of his answers could be construed as mainstream or "bandwagon", they clearly show that Murray had a good eye for the game.

Jordan was already a four-time champion by the time Murray was born in February 1997. Furthermore, Murray hadn't left high school before the two other retired players on his list, Kobe and Shaq, had left the NBA. However, the final two players on his list are two that Murray has actively played against. The first is LeBron James, whom Murray helped eliminate from the playoffs earlier this week. The other is <a href="" target="_blank">Steph Curry</a>, the career Warrior against whom Murry has played 14 games. Left off Murray's list is a wealth of stars like Kareem, Bird, etc. but it's also a pretty hard list to argue against, if a little mainstream. What do you think of Murray's thoughts?

A Look Into His Case by itstheboombap0, 25 May 2023 18:58 GMT<strong><a href="" target="_blank">Fetty Wap</a></strong>, an artist who once dominated the charts, now finds himself entangled in a complicated legal situation. Through this deep dive, we will explore the circumstances surrounding <a href="" target="_blank">Fetty Wap</a>'s 2021 arrest and how it has impacted his career. Fetty Wap's Rise to Fame WHITE PLAINS, NEW YORK - MAY 21: Fetty Wap visits Prime on May 21, 2021 in White Plains, New York. (Photo by Johnny Nunez/WireImage) Before diving into the Fetty Wap prison case, let us briefly walk you through the rapper's rise to prominence. Born Willie Junior Maxwell II in Paterson, New Jersey, Fetty Wap first burst into the music scene with <a href="" target="_blank">his 2014 hit single "Trap Queen."</a> This song became a commercial success, reaching No. 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. In 2015, the artist continued to claim his space in the rap game with singles like "679" and "My Way." These songs helped establish his distinct style, characterized by its sing-song delivery and catchy hooks. He soon released a self-titled debut album, which debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart. It appeared that Fetty Wap was destined for greatness, but his path took an unexpected turn. The Downfall: Fetty Wap Prison Case The Arrest <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> (Photo by Theo Wargo/Getty Images for Firefly) Fast forward to 2021, and Fetty Wap's name has become synonymous with legal troubles. On October 28th, 2021, FBI agents arrested Fetty Wap at the Rolling Loud music festival at Citi Field in Queens, New York, just moments before his scheduled performance. Prosecutors charged him with conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute controlled substances, specifically more than 100 kilograms of narcotics, including cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine. The Allegations <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="" title="" /></div> LONDON, ENGLAND - September 23: Fetty Wap performs on stage at o2 Forum Kentish Town on September 23, 2019 in London, England. (Photo by Ollie Millington/Redferns) As per the allegations outlined in court documents, Fetty Wap and five other individuals were part of a large-scale drug distribution network. The operation <strong><a href="*1edw9yi*_ga*MTkwMTA1OTgzNS4xNjg1MDM1MzYw*_ga_0DZ7LHF5PZ*MTY4NTAzNTM1OS4xLjAuMTY4NTAzNTM4MS4wLjAuMA..&amp;_ga=2.73009552.2083518493.1685035364-1901059835.1685035360" target="_blank">reportedly sourced narcotics from the West Coast</a></strong> and distributed them throughout the New York and New Jersey areas. Authorities confiscated about $1.5 million in cash, 16 kilograms of cocaine, two kilograms of heroin, fentanyl pills, handguns, and a rifle during the investigation. The Accomplices <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="" title="" /></div> NEWARK, NEW JERSEY - NOVEMBER 21: Fetty Wap performs onstage during Power 105.1's Powerhouse 2021 at Prudential Center on November 21, 2021 in Newark, New Jersey.

It also involves Anthony "Ant" Leonardi, Brian "Brazy Bucks" Sullivan, Robert "Webs" Brown, Kalyas "Yaya" Temple, and Robin "Rob-Boo" Blue. The individuals face drug, firearms, and narcotics trafficking charges. The investigation into this network began in 2019, leading up to the high-profile arrests late last year. The Implications: Career Hanging In The Balance <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image4"><img id="bvimg4" src="" title="" /></div> LONDON, ENGLAND - September 23: Fetty Wap performs on stage at o2 Forum Kentish Town on September 23, 2019 in London, England. (Photo by Ollie Millington/Redferns) Given the serious nature of the charges brought against him, Fetty Wap's once-promising career now seems to be in jeopardy. He initially pleaded not guilty to the charges but then <a href="" target="_blank">changed to a guilty plea</a> in 2022. The public's response to the allegations has been mixed. Some fans express sympathy and hope for the best. At the same time, many others criticized him for engaging in these activities despite his previous success. Regardless of public opinion, the Fetty Wap case has undoubtedly tarnished his reputation and career prospects. The Consequences <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image5"><img id="bvimg5" src="" title="" /></div> NEWARK, NEW JERSEY - AUGUST 26: Fetty Wap attends the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards at Prudential Center on August 26, 2019 in Newark, New Jersey Fetty Wap appeared in court on November 2nd, 2021, and was subsequently released on a $500,000 bond. He was also required to surrender his passport and stay on home confinement, where he was electronically monitored. The rapper would finally be sentenced in May 2023 to <a href="" target="_blank">6 years in prison</a>, and he apologized to his family during his time in court (via the <strong><a href="" target="_blank">New York Post</a></strong>): "I always aimed to lead," he told the judge at his sentencing in Long Island federal court. "I ended up hurting the community, hurting the people who look up to me, hurting my family, hurting my children, hurting myself," he continued. "I only wanted to do right by my family and loved ones... In doing so, I never asked myself - is it all the way right?" A Cautionary Tale: Pitfalls of Success As Fetty Wap's story unfolds, it serves as a stark reminder of the pitfalls that often accompany sudden wealth and fame. It is also a cautionary tale about the importance of surrounding oneself with positive influences and making sound decisions. In the end, the Fetty Wap case is a sad turn of events for the rapper who once enchanted fans around the globe with his unique sound and style. As the world watches and waits for his day in court, many are left to wonder: What could have been if Fetty Wap's path had not taken this unexpected and dark detour? via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271152Crime, Features, Music, Original Content, drug distribution, new jersey, trafficking, What Happened blogs/5-2023/271152-what-happened-fetty-s.jpg1Shannon Sharpe And Kwame Brown Beef Over LeBron Comments by itstheboombap0, 25 May 2023 18:22 GMTEarlier today, retired NBA player <a href="" target="_blank">Kwame Brown had some choice words about LeBron James</a>. Brown, the first overall pick in 2001 who never quite lived up to the hype of that draft position, was angry at LeBron following the Lakers' exit from the playoffs. "I have never seen a guy of your caliber, supposed caliber, you don't even get a shot off?" Brown said at one point in his seven-minute rant. "You're probably the best scorer in the game, you got all these points. But you were looking for a bailout, again." At another point in the video, Brown argues that "Throughout history, the little nerds are gonna look up your statline and say 'He's gotta be the greatest player to ever play the game'. And people who actually play are gonna know that is bullshit." Shannon Sharpe And Kwame Brown Feud PHOENIX, ARIZONA - FEBRUARY 09: Shannon Sharpe attends SiriusXM At Super Bowl LVII on February 09, 2023 in Phoenix, Arizona. (Photo by Cindy Ord/Getty Images for SiriusXM) "Of all the people, [Brown] should never ever question anyone's greatness," Sharpe said on Undefeated. "You on the Mount Rushmore of all a joke real talk." Drafted first overall by the Wizards in 2001, Brown averaged 6.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 0.9 assists over a 12-year career. Other players drafted after Brown in the 2001 draft include Tyson Chandler, Pau Gasol, and Tony Parker. By comparison, LeBron averaged 27.3 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 6.9 assists over the first 12 years of his career. Brown has since responded to the Hall of Fame tight end's comments. "How you gonna invalidate a number draft pick, boy?" Brown said early in his lengthy response to Sharpe. "How about you put some bass in your voice when you talk?...You on a panel with a white boy who blames his coach for not making it to college." Brown proceeds to mock the way Sharpe talks while reiterating that Sharpe is a "guest in the house of basketball". Brown, who received 0 votes for Rookie of the Year and never made an All-Star Game or All-NBA appearance, did not appreciate Sharpe's take. However, what do you think? Is Kwame clowning or does Sharpe need to stay in his lane? Let us know in the comments.

Moreover, the rapper pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter, thus raising expectations that his sentence would last 21 years given the charges and <a href="" target="_blank">previous court proceedings</a>. Authorities arrested the West Coast artist, real name George Harris, back in 2019 and faced charges of first-degree murder in connection to the death of a Vallejo man, 26-year-old Rashied Flowers. Furthermore, the plea deal excused him from serving an extended 50-year sentence if officials found him guilty. Unfortunately for Lul G, legal issues plagued him from the onset of his career alongside his group co-members. During a cover story for THE FADER back in 2018 along with SOB x RBE, he spoke on his struggles with the probation system that stemmed from armed robbery and gun charges since he was 17 years old. "They've been making it difficult," he expressed. "Like, it'll be a big opportunity that none of us will probably ever see again in our lives and they'll just tell me, 'No.' Straight up. It's like, basically, y'all want me to lose my career, so I have nothing, so I'm forced to do stuff that'll have me stuck in this system." <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">SOB x RBE's "GANGIN" (Review)</a> Lul G Performing At The Day N Night Festival In 2017 ANAHEIM, CA - SEPTEMBER 10: Rapper Lul G of the hip hop group SOB x RBE performs onstage during the Day N Night Festival at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on September 10, 2017 in Anaheim, California. (Photo by Scott Dudelson/Getty Images) When Harris <a href="" target="_blank">pleaded no contest</a> to the crime, Deputy Public Defender Max Fuentes spoke to XXL about the upcoming sentence back in March of this year. "It is accurate that Mr. Harris plead [no contest] to voluntary manslaughter and will be serving 21 years in prison in relation to the 2019 shooting death of Mr. Flowers," he remarked. "All I can say at this point is that [Deputy Public Defender] Ms. Tanasa and myself feel honored to be representing Mr. Harris, as well as fortunate to have secured this plea deal on his behalf." The 24-year-old admitted to using his own gun in the incident, which resulted in a shortened sentence. Meanwhile, other members of SOB x RBE continued their careers in various ways. For example, Yhung T.O. and DaBoii dropped a collaborative project <a href="" target="_blank">Demon &amp; Mufasa</a> featuring <a href="" target="_blank">Snoop Dogg</a>. The group's members' futures remain to be seen, and we will surely know how other members react to this ordeal soon.

Epps got his big acting break in 2000's Next Friday, playing Day-Day Jones, the sidekick to <a href="" target="_blank">Ice Cube</a>'s Craig Jones. Meanwhile, Tucker got his break in the first Friday film in 1995. Later in the decade, Tucker would become well-known for his starring role in the Rush Hour films alongside Jackie Chan. Both men had a crucial role in the Friday franchise. Furthermore, both men had helped define comedy for a generation of people. But who was funnier?

Furthermore, he acknowledged that they wouldn't have had Epps' Day-Day if Tucker hadn't left the Friday franchise after the first film. "Yeah, I'm glad he didn't do it," Cube said. "'Cause we wouldn't have Mike." Furthermore, Tucker was reportedly offered $12 million to reprise his role as Smokey but declined over "religious reasons." Cube elaborated on this, explaining that, "Yeah, we wanted him," he said. "He turned it down. You'll hear a thousand different stories, but we wanted to pay him $12 million to do that movie and he turned it down. He said it was for religious reasons...He didn't wanna cuss and he didn't wanna smoke weed on camera." Meanwhile, Tucker gave his own version of events in 2021. "I never really told people this 'cause I kinda forgot about it ... I didn't want to represent everybody smoking weed," he said. "I kind of made it more personal than a movie ... I wanted to move on because when I did something, I never wanted to do it again. Back then, I was all about going to the next level.

A Defining Sound Of Hip Hop by itstheboombap0, 25 May 2023 17:49 GMTOne subgenre has steadily maintained its influence in the vibrant and ever-evolving hip-hop world: Boom Bap. Born from the gritty streets of New York City in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the style is defined by its distinctive sound palette. Named onomatopoeically for its hard-hitting drum sounds, "Boom" for the kick drum, and "Bap" for the snare, the old-school version of the genre has become synonymous with East Coast hip-hop's raw, authentic spirit. The niche emerged as a response to the highly-produced, synth-heavy sound that dominated the hip-hop scene in the mid-'80s. Pioneers such as <a href="" target="_blank">DJ Premier</a>, Pete Rock, and <a href="" target="_blank">KRS-One</a> sought to strip hip-hop back to its roots. They focused on complex lyricism and stripped-down, sample-heavy beats. The result was a gritty, raw sound that has remained a cornerstone of hip-hop culture. The Anatomy Of Boom Bap Teenage boys listening to music friom a stereo wearing American style football and basketball tops in Paris. (Photo by Phil Knott/PYMCA/Avalon/Getty Images) Its unique musical anatomy sets the style apart from other hip-hop subgenres. The beats in Boom Bap are typically slower-paced. This allows the listener to focus more on the lyrics and the rhythm of the emcee. Additionally, the drums are always front and center, with the "Boom" and "Bap" sounds providing a steady, rhythmic backbone to the track. Equally crucial to the sound is the use of samples. Producers pull from various sources, but classic soul, funk, and jazz records are common staples. These samples are often chopped and recontextualized to create a fresh yet nostalgically familiar sonic landscape. Golden Age Of Hip Hop <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> NEW YORK, NEW YORK-NOVEMBER 01: Rappers <a href="" target="_blank">Method Man</a>, Nas Kurious and <a href="" target="_blank">Redman</a> (aka Reggie Noble) who is shown giving the middle finger obscene gesture are seen in a portrait taken on November 01, 1993 in New York City. (Photo by Al Pereira/Getty Images/Michael Ochs Archives) No discussion of Boom Bap could be complete without acknowledging its integral role in what many consider <a href="" target="_blank">the Golden Era of hip-hop</a>. From the late '80s to mid-'90s, artists like Nas, Gang Starr, and A Tribe Called Quest pushed the boundaries of lyrical content and delivery. This was done against the backdrop of BB-styled beats. Boom Bap became a vehicle for artists to express complex narratives, social critiques, and personal stories. It significantly broadened the scope of hip-hop as a cultural and artistic medium. The raw authenticity of the sound also served to ground these narratives. It created an unfiltered connection between the artist and the listener. Boom Bap In The Modern Era <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="" title="" /></div> NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 26: A view of atmosphere during YouTube brings the BOOM BAP BACK to New York City With Lyor Cohen, Nas, Grandmaster Flash, Q-Tip, Chuck D and Fab 5 Freddy on January 26, 2018 at Industria in New York City. (Photo by Brian Ach/Getty Images for YouTube) In the late '90s and 2000s, the mainstream hip-hop scene shifted from Boom Bap to more polished, commercially viable styles. However, Boom Bap never vanished. Instead, it found a home in the underground scene, where it thrives today. Modern artists like Joey Bada$$ and <a href="" target="_blank">producers like Madlib</a> have not only kept the tradition alive, but they have also injected it with fresh energy and perspective. They honor the subgenre's roots while pushing its boundaries, incorporating elements of trap, lo-fi, and other contemporary styles. Conclusion: The Legacy &amp; <a href="" target="_blank">Future</a> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="" title="" /></div> (L-R) Bobcat, Cut Creator, LL Cool J, and E-Love take a ride in a limousine in New York City during the filming of the video for LL Cool J's single, 'I Need Love', 1987. (Photo by Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images) So, what is Boom Bap? It's more than just a hip-hop subgenre. It's a testament to the enduring power of authenticity in music. Its gritty beats and lyrical depth are also a bold counterpoint to commercialized trends, serving as a reminder of hip-hop's roots in the streets of New York City. As we look toward the future of hip-hop, the spirit of the sound continues to resonate. Artists worldwide draw inspiration from its raw energy and authenticity, ensuring that Boom Bap continues influencing hip-hop's evolution. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>271141Features, Music, Original Content, boom bap, golden era, Rap Subgenres, What Is Boom Bap?

This would be the first film in a franchise that has become a pop culture behemoth. The most recent film, Fast X, is on course to pass $1 billion at the box office and served as an Avengers-esque beginning of the end to the franchise.

"Arguably these have gotten better and better," the rapper and actor declared. "To the point where it's like people just trying to understand how the hell we keep doing this shit. I also hear people say all the time 'Why do y'all keep doing these movies?' That's the dumbest fucking question in the world. I'm gonna tell you why, because no matter what industry we're in; podcast, music, movies, it's all about a bottom line. It's all about how much you spend compared to how much you make.

He is always wearing something unique, even if everyone else thinks it is dumb. For instance, <a href="" target="_blank">he wore some shin pads the other day</a>, which felt like an odd choice. However, he did it with confidence, and sometimes, that is all you really need. Either way, Kanye has no shame when it comes to his personal choices, and that extends to politics and music. Recently, Kanye West and Bianca Censori were spotted again, this time on an ice cream date. If you have been following along, they are frequently out together. The couple seems to be quite happy, even despite recent comments made by <a href="" target="_blank">Kim Kardashian</a>. Once again, Kanye is under the microscope for his outfit on this date. As you can see in the tweet down below, Ye was wearing a black t-shirt and some black pants. All of this is normal. However, what is not normal are the shoulder pads he is wearing that make him look like a football player. <strong>Read More: <a href="" target="_blank">Kim Kardashian Thinks Kanye West's Behavior Will Hurt Her Kids More Than Her Sex Ta</a><a href="" target="_blank">p</a><a href="" target="_blank">e</a></strong> Kanye West With Some Questionable Taste Ye Kanye West showed off his very unique sense of style as he took &#39;wife&#39; Bianca Censori for an ice cream date in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Daily Mail <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &mdash; YE ? yefanatics (@yefanatics) <a href="" target="_blank">May 25, 2023</a> Overall, this is not a look that we have seen from Kanye West before. However, as one fan pointed out, this does look eerily close to his outfit from the infamous "I Love It" music video with <a href="" target="_blank">Lil Pump</a>. It is one of those fashion choices that really make you scratch your head. Perhaps a brand would be brave enough to try this out on the runway, but as an individual, it takes a lot of gumption to be seen like this in public. Although, we have certainly seen Kanye is worse states before. Fans React Subsequently, Kanye was heavily roasted for this new look. As you can see down below, some compared him to a character from Roblox. Meanwhile, there were some other comments that suggested how poor this outfit was. They are brutally honest comments, but that's the internet for you. Let us know what you think of this fit, in the comments section below.

The arrest stemmed from a March incident where <a href="" target="_blank">Mahomes allegedly forcibly kissed the owner of a restaurant in Kansas City</a>. Surveillance footage shows Mahomes grabbing the woman by the throat from behind and pulling her back towards him before kissing her. The woman appears uncomfortable during the interaction. Additionally, a male server at the restaurant has accused Mahomes of shoving him. Mahomes was initially held on a $100,000 bond and will face a court hearing later this year. However, Mahomes has vehemently denied the allegations. "Our investigation has revealed substantial evidence refuting the claims of Jackson's accuser including the statements of several witnesses," Mahomes' attorney Brandan Davies said. "We have reached out to law enforcement to provide the fruit of our investigation so that they may have a complete picture of the matter."

However, his biggest claim to media attention is that his brother is Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes.

"At the end of the day," the QB told the media, "I come here to play football and try to take care of my family, at the same time. So, [I] just kind of keep it to myself and just go out there and play football when I'm in the building. It's your family," he said, "but you have to come in here and do a job. And that's what I try to do every day." With that, Mahomes has made it clear that he doesn't want to be asked about Jackson, especially as the case unfolds against him.

As such, she's probably very busy shooting visuals, taking press deals, and apparently debuting new looks like the one she just teased. Moreover, the rapper posted an Instagram Reel of her getting ready for what seems like a shoot, whether for a music video or something else entirely. Foregoing her usual long locks, she apparently rocked a short haircut with curls as her team put some hairspray on. Looking sultrily at the camera as her single "<a href="" target="_blank">Bops</a>" played in the background, she said that there are "<a href="" target="_blank">good things coming" very soon.</a> Of course, this is far from the first time that she teased some sort of visual for that song in particular. Just last weekend, Coi Leray and a couple of her friends put on <a href="" target="_blank">a twerk show</a> for the camera while "Bops" played, yet it's unclear if it'll be a part of the music video or if she just built some hype. Regardless, the 26-year-old keeps leveling up and making waves that set the stage for her next moves. We're only a month away from COI's release, but we're sure that there will be much more to cover from her in that meantime. <strong>Read More: </strong><a href="" target="_blank">Coi Leray's Best Collaborations</a> Coi Leray's New Look <a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a><a href=";utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Coi (@coileray)</a> However, a lot of fans were left a little confused with <a href="" target="_blank">the album's tracklist</a>, which the Boston native revealed on Monday (May 22). Furthermore, a lot of that confusion stems from the features, which don't include the array of U.S. rappers and hitmakers that appeared on Coi Leray's debut album Trendsetter. Rather, COI will bring on <a href="" target="_blank">David Guetta</a>, Saucy Santana, Giggs, Lola Brooke, Skillibeng, and none other than James Brown, somehow. All this points to more genre diversity, but singles like "Players" and the teased "Make My Day" (with Guetta) hint towards <a href="" target="_blank">heavy sample use</a>, plus a more electronic and dance-inspired direction. No matter what you think of these teases, it's clear that the "<a href="" target="_blank">My Body</a>" MC set herself up for a big splash. Whether she capitalized on the hype remains to be seen, but we're sure that she'll continue to make waves no matter what. Until then, we have to find out whether she debuts any other new looks to usher in another era in her career.

Her influence is indisputably felt in every successive generation of singers, from her timeless classics to her iconic vocal techniques. Her treasured hits never cease to captivate audiences and fill dance floors. Above all, she became an embodiment of strength, a living testament to the power of resilience. After battling multiple operations and a debilitating stroke, Turner returned to the stage a force to be reckoned with. Her legacy lives on, inspiring generations of artists, while her classic hits remain timeless club staples. Paring down her discography to only a few songs proved challenging, as a list of fan favorites could easily span twice as long. Yet, indisputably, these tracks showcase the best of Turner - the cream of the crop that continues to mark global charts even decades past their release date. 7. "River Deep - Mountain High" (1966) <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Tina Turner's unmistakable vocal power epitomized her incomparable talent. Resonant with native Tennessean soul, her music often included vivid reflections of her life in the rural town of Nutbush. This song conveys a unique, if brief, snapshot of Turner's upbringing as she celebrates her beloved "rag doll." Despite its universal appeal, "River Deep - Mountain High" was not initially successful in the US, yet it gradually gained recognition. Presently, it stands among the most well-known songs of its time. 6. "Nutbush City Limits" (1973) <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Tina Turner belts a vibrant, funky ode to her birthplace, "Nutbush City Limits." Filled with brassy horns and powerful guitar, the track transcends its Southern roots as it forges between classic soul and early disco. Despite its 'little old community' origins, the song resonated around the globe. Consequently, it climbed the charts to reach No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100. Captivating audiences live, it has become an integral part of Australian dance culture. Conversely, even inspired a popular TikTok dance known as "The Nutbush". 5. "Private Dancer" (1984) <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Mark Knopfler's masterpiece, "Private Dancer," is a melancholy seven-minute ode to unachievable dreams. In the track's middle eight, Tina Turner delicately conveys the forlorn sentiments of the protagonist with her astounding vocal range. Her calming yet powerful approach delivers an eloquent reminder that no matter how hard one strives, their hopes may never come to fruition. Presenting listeners with a lasting impression, the piece builds to a spellbinding guitar solo before abruptly fading away. 4. "Proud Mary" (1971) <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Tina Turner's rousing rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Proud Mary" became the archetype for all future covers. She infused her <a href="" target="_blank">performance with infectious energy</a>, boldly proclaiming the transition from soft dynamics to hard power with a spoken-word introduction. "We'll start this song off nice and easy, then finish strong." Her fervor and finesse created a masterpiece that gave new life to the classic. 3. "Typical Male" (1986) <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Tina Turner's 1986 album Break Every Rule made a valiant effort to replicate the success of "Private Dancer," enlisting the same production team with additional songwriting input from Mark Knopfler and David Bowie, as well as a dreamy cover of an Al Green classic (although ultimately omitted). Commencing with the memorable "Typical Male," this record explores an empowering take on little-me coquetry with a self-assured resolve palpable in the refrain. Donning Phil Collins on drums and a fiery red dress for the music video, Tina Turner's 1986 single "Typical Male" found immense success, climbing to No. 2 on the charts and becoming a pop culture staple. Championing female empowerment, the song speaks of an independent woman confidently turning the tables on men, its tone playful yet unwavering in its message. Boosted by a blazing saxophone solo, this classic track truly sparked an era of liberation. 2. "We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)" (1985) <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Exploring the desert wasteland of a post-apocalyptic world, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome was an iconic film in its era. Featuring the enthralling performance of Aunty Entity by Tina Turner, and her heartfelt contribution to the soundtrack, the song "We Don't Need Another Hero" resonated with viewers of all ages. Though the lyrics seem disconnected from the movie plot, they encapsulate the narrative's thematic subtext. Its chorus carries a power that still holds today. 1. "What's Love Got to Do With It" (1984) <center><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Tina Turner's later work often fails to capture the dynamism and gritty energy of her iconic '60s and '70s hits. Her iconic smash hit, "<a href="" target="_blank">What's Love Got to Do with It</a>," exudes a fiery energy that truly embodies the essence of Rock 'n' Roll. The track catapulted her back into the limelight from her triumphant Private Dancer album and astonished audiences everywhere. By weaving together crisp synth sounds with her signature soulful vocals, the Queen of Rock injected new life into her soundscape, a tapestry of countless instruments and heart-wrenching emotion. While lyrics may paradoxically reflect a cynical perspective on love, their vigor and vivacity instantly capture one's heart.
