There are still some folks out there who think the vaccine was made too quickly and that it's a form of population control. Meanwhile, those who have gotten their vaccines have been protected from the virus and the death tolls have quickly lowered as a result. <a href="" target="_blank">Former President Barack Obama is among those doing</a>&nbsp;these campaigns and recently, he spoke to Charles Barkley and Shaq about why people need to get the vaccine.&nbsp;"We don't know the kinds of long terms effects that were having. There's some folks who get it and 6 months later and they're still not feeling quite right," Obama said. The former President also hit Barkley with some fat jokes during the interview as he spoke about Barkley's daughter's wedding and how Chuck lost weight for the event. Cliff Hawkins/Getty Images for The Match"You also felt like you need to get in shape because The Hora (the traditional Jewish dance) when you're lifting the chair, nobody could do that at your current weight," Obama said. Barkley immediately laughed the whole thing off which is typical for Chuck as he typically takes these kinds of things like a champ. As for the vaccine, millions of doses continue to be given across the United States and it's looking likely that everyone who wants to be vaccinated will get their shots by the Summer.

New York rapper Bobby Shmurda is finally a free man, being released from prison earlier this year. He has&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">not released new music since getting out</a> but he's been&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">enjoying time with his friends, reuniting with his family</a> and the GS9 collective, including Rowdy Rebel, Fetty Luciano, and others.&nbsp; When they were getting sentenced, Bobby Shmurda famously struck a deal with prosecutors where he <a href="" target="_blank">agreed to spend extra time in prison if Rowdy Rebel got a lighter sentence</a>. Rowdy was set to receive a twelve-year sentence, which was ultimately reduced to six years. That was because of Bobby's actions. The "Hot N***a" rapper is officially speaking out about his decision to take on more time in a recent interview, explaining why he decided to do what he did. Neilson Barnard/Getty Images"They tried to play that against me 'cause they wanted me to cop-out," said Bobby during the interview. "They tried to use Rowdy [Rebel] against me as leverage like, aight, we gone give Rowdy twelve [years], we gone give him the max if you don't cop out with him. And I'm like, you gone do that to my side?" Bobby says that he had an opportunity to&nbsp;come home&nbsp;much earlier than he did, saying that he could have been released three years ago. "I could have been home way earlier, 2018 or 2017," he said. Jim Jones recently praised Bobby Shmurda, saying that the rapper "paid his debt to society."

With each one having mastered their craft behind the mic, it's hard not to count the Buffalo emcees as the best rappers of today's current era.&nbsp; Following the release of his <a href="" target="_blank">brand new album&nbsp;</a><a href="" target="_blank">La Maquina</a>,&nbsp;which features standout turns from his Drumwork&nbsp;talent Jae Skeese and 7xvethegenius, as well as J.I.D, Ludacris, Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher, 38 Spesh, and more, many were quick to celebrate everything Conway has been bringing to the table during his triumphant run. Clearly vying for immortality atop the fabled hip-hop Mount Rushmore, it would appear that Machine&nbsp;has already been accepted by <a href="" target="_blank">many of the faces currently lining the monument</a>.&nbsp; Steven Ferdman/Getty Images&nbsp;On that note, Conway recently found himself connecting with the legendary Jay-Z, who has been a longtime supporter and fan of the Griselda movement. In fact, his recent&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">2020 year-end playlist featured a fair number of solo cuts</a> from Gunn, Conway, and Benny, to the point where fans have begun clamoring for Hov to follow their musical lead and enlist production from Alchemist, Daringer, and Beat Butcher. And if we're really&nbsp;fortunate, some collaborations on wax with the Griselda emcees.&nbsp; <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> Kevin Mazur/Getty Images&nbsp;Perhaps we're closer to that reality than once thought. "Politics as usual," captions Machine, alongside a few pictures of the pair posted up. While it's not exactly an in-studio picture, it's clear that conversations are being had, and it's hard to believe that the prospect of uniting on wax isn't entirely unrealistic. And let's be honest -- if anyone can stand a chance at outshining Jay-Z on a track, it's The Machine. Best believe that lyrical battle would be among the year's most memorable, were it to actually go down. Check out the pictures below, and sound off if you'd welcome a collaboration from Jay-Z and Conway The Machine.&nbsp; via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>204018article, Conway The Machine & Jay-Z Link Upblogs/4-2021/204018-conway-machine-jayz-s.jpg1Damian Lillard Perplexed By KD's Top 5 Teammates List by itstheboombap0, 19 Apr 2021 09:35 GMT <a href="" target="_blank">Kevin Durant can be a controversial figure at times as some fans believe</a>&nbsp;he is too sensitive for his own good. His constant Twitter use has led to some hilarious interactions and while some may feel like he is doing too much, there are others who appreciate his engagement. Throughout his career, KD has had well-publicized issues with some of his teammates, and sometimes, his comments give credence to the rumors. Such was the case recently as&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">KD omitted Russell Westbrook from a list of his top 5 best teammates.</a> This omission led to a lot of debate on social media as fans reacted to what KD had to say. Even Damian Lillard opted to weigh in on the whole ordeal as he simply provided a thinking face emoji to show that KD's take here was suspect, to say the least. Eventually, Durant was asked about Westbrook, which led him to admit that he completely forgot about his former OKC teammate. Considering these two have a ton of history, some fans were not willing to give KD the benefit of the doubt, and it's easy to see why. As for Lillard, he has had his own run-ins with Westbrook although even he can see that Russ is one of the best players in the league right now.

On every single team, he has been on, there have been at least two other future Hall of Famers. For instance, in OKC, Durant played with<a href="" target="_blank"> Russell Westbrook and James Harden</a>. In Golden State, he had Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, while in Brooklyn, he has Harden and Kyrie Irving. During a sitdown interview with Gillie Da King, Durant was asked to name his top five teammates of all-time, and while some of the names aren't surprising, there was certainly a shocking omission. For instance, Durant named Irving, Curry, Thompson, Harden, and even Serge Ibaka, which prompted the host to interrupt and ask about Westbrook. Sarah Stier/Getty ImagesEventually, Durant claimed that Westbrook had completely slipped his mind and that he was indeed a top-five teammate. Despite the correction, Durant refused to name who he would take out of the list, which seems to be an indication that he may have purposely left Westbrook off and was just hoping not to get called out on it. Fans on social media ended up giving Durant a lot of grief for his take here, <a href="" target="_blank">as some felt like Westbrook was being blatantly disrespected</a>. Over the years, Westbrook has been dissed by fans due to his lack of playoff success but when it comes to talent and tenacity, he is one of the best in the league. You can see the full extent of what Durant had to say, below. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>204020article, Kevin Durant Almost Forgets Russell Westbrook In Top 5 Teammates Listblogs/4-2021/204020-kevin-durant-almost-s.jpg1Tom Brady Gives Update On His Knee Surgery Recovery by itstheboombap0, 19 Apr 2021 08:56 GMT <a href="" target="_blank">Tom Brady is coming off of his seventh Super Bowl victory</a>&nbsp;and fans are eager to see if he can somehow match the energy of last season and come through with yet another title. Brady will be entering the <a href="" target="_blank">season as a 44-year-old which typically means his career should be over soon</a>. However, Brady has defied the odds and is still playing some of the best football of his entire career. After winning the Super Bowl, Brady was forced to get surgery on his knee and now, the superstar quarterback is speaking out on whether he will be back in time for the season. As he claims, he will be fine for September although he might not be ready for the start of workouts which go down this week. Patrick Smith/Getty Images"I feel pretty good, and I push myself pretty hard,"&nbsp;Brady said via TMZ. "I feel pretty good. I don't know if I could go this week, but we'll see how things play out.&nbsp;It's a long time between now and the beginning of the season and just be smart about all these different things that we have to do and fulfill; but we all take a lot of pride in being ready to go, and I'm sure we will be." This recovery timeline is good news for the Buccaneers who are bringing back all of their players from last season. They have an opportunity to do something special and it seems like they are all motivated to get it done.

In fact, the affable mogul recently shared a status update on the project's overall completion, teasing that it was&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">sitting at a healthy 97.7 percent.</a> Guests, while not confirmed by way of a direct tracklist, appear to include Post Malone, Lil Baby, <a href="" target="_blank">Roddy Ricch</a>, Migos, H.E.R, Buju Banton, <a href="" target="_blank">Nas</a>, and many more. As of today, a new name can be added to the mix, as Khaled recently shared an Instagram post indicating that he joined forces with the legendary Lil Wayne.&nbsp; In true Khaled fashion, his caption tells us little about the nature of what's to come, instead focusing on the DJ's unbridled enthusiasm for the art of the collaboration. To his credit, Khaled has never been shy about giving <a href="" target="_blank">his favorite artists their flowers</a>, and&nbsp;his ability to play nicely with others has clearly proven fruitful. "ICON ALERT," he captions, alongside an intriguing image of him and Weezy gazing sky-bound. "My brother!" Brother indeed, given their frequent collaborative rate. Of course, Wayne's presence still lingers every time the "We Taking Over" instrumental kicks off, given how thoroughly he bodied it not once but twice.&nbsp;While it's unlikely that Khaled will quarterback another bar-heavy banger of similar nature, given that his last Lil Wayne-assisted single was "I'm The One," it should be interesting to see what the duo manage to cook up for&nbsp;Khaled Khaled. Check out the update for yourself below, and keep an eye out for concrete details on DJ Khaled's next body of work. Given how much he tends to love the summer months, you can bet the album will be coming sooner than later. <strong>LISTEN:</strong> Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled at peak performance level via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>204005article, DJ Khaled Hints At Lil Wayne "Khaled Khaled" Appearancebvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Jake Paul Challenged By Yet Another Former NBA Player by itstheboombap0, 19 Apr 2021 08:31 GMT <a href="" target="_blank">Jake Paul's boxing career has been fairly brief although it has certainly been successful</a>&nbsp;from both a notoriety and financial standpoint. Over the weekend, Paul was able to defeat the likes of Ben Askren through first-round knockout and now, he is looking for his next opponent. Many want to see Paul fight against a real opponent with boxing experience. So far, Paul has fought FIFA YouTubers, a former NBA player,&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">and a washed-up MMA fighter, which doesn't exactly give his career too much legitimacy.</a> While Paul looks for that next challenger, it seems as though yet another former NBA player has come out of the woodwork to propose a fight. This time around, it is the likes of Kendall Gill, who had a solid NBA career. Gill is now 52 years old and over the last decade, he has taken up boxing and is actually 4-0 for his career. Michael Hickey/BIG3/Getty ImagesGill has been pressuring Paul to give him a fight contract for over a week now and there are some former NBA players who are encouraging this matchup. Of course, Paul is less than half of Gill's age, which certainly would be a detriment for the ex-NBA star should they actually lace up the gloves. At this point, it seems like Paul is gunning for someone more esteemed in the fight game, although Perhaps Gill could get his shot in the future should Jake decide to reverse course. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>204006article, Jake Paul Challenged By Yet Another Former NBA Playerblogs/4-2021/204006-jake-paul-challenge-s.jpg1Lil Yachty's Friend Found After Going Missing by itstheboombap0, 19 Apr 2021 08:15 GMT Lil Yachty shared on Sunday afternoon that his friend, 23-year-old Nicholas Anthony Lynch, had gone missing. He was last seen near Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles. He was found within the same day. The Atlanta-based rapper shared an urgent message for his fans on social media, telling everyone that&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">his friend had gone missing in Los Angeles</a> without a phone or a way to contact anybody. "Help find my brother pls," he wrote on Instagram, sharing Nicholas' information. Pointing out any pertinent information in the description, including the clothing he was wearing, his height and weight, and more, Lil Yachty gratefully told his followers that his friend had been found. "Nick Found," he wrote on Twitter. "Thank u to everyone who helped share the missing post of my friend, I am grateful." Perhaps as a celebratory means, Boat announced that <a href="" target="_blank">he would be releasing a new song on Monday</a>. "I&rsquo;ma drop a song tmmr on my YouTube," he said shortly after his friend was found.

As part of the Hot Topics portion of her popular daytime talk show, the highly opinionated host has criticized the 21-year-old "Make No Sense" artist <a href="" target="_blank">for a myriad of reasons, including the number of children he's responsible for</a>. After recent reports this weekend, it's rumored that <a href="" target="_blank">NBA Youngboy is presently expecting his eighth child</a>, this time with his girlfriend Jazlyn Mychelle. On past episodes of her show, Wendy Williams has <a href="" target="_blank">made "baby mama charts" for rappers</a>, including Youngboy Never Broke Again, making fun of the artist and his personal life. She has taken aim at Yaya Mayweather, one of his ex-girlfriends, after she <a href="" target="_blank">allegedly stabbed another one of YB's baby mamas</a>. She's also exchanged words with Youngboy's mother, who used her social media platform to call out Wendy for constantly having something negative to say about her son. It looks like enough is finally enough and Youngboy is speaking out for himself, addressing Wendy in an alleged letter from jail. Currently incarcerated <a href="" target="_blank">following an arrest a few weeks ago</a>, NBA Youngboy allegedly wrote the following letter, which has been shared by multiple sources. "I can leave my kids millions of dollars to divide but can't give them the time they truly deserve," he wrote in the post. "Nobody understand me they never did sh*t some times I don't understand myself but that's fine because I'm okay I ain't looking for you to feel sorry I just ask for one thing- For you to let me suffer in peace tell MS. WENDY WILLIAM I say she got a good soul and she's a beautiful women I can see that threw all the bad comments thrown at her tell her count her blessings (STAY IN GOOD SPIRIT) Sincerely Kentrell."

"Finding it extremely hard to order froyo from [The Bigg Chill] when you have to walk past tons of sugar-free cookies/other diet foods before you get to the counter," the&nbsp;singer&nbsp;posted on her Instagram story. "Do better please." She added that she's using the hashtag "#dietculturevultures" to call out "harmful messaging from brands or companies that perpetuate a society that not only enables but praises disordered eating." Lovato, who has spoken about dealing with an&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">eating disorder in the past,</a> has also struggled with drug addiction. She recently spoke about how <a href="" target="_blank">DMX's death impacted her</a>:&nbsp; Any time that I see somebody OD or even pass away that's in the public eye, I immediately think, 'that could have been you had you not been putting all this work in the last couple of years of your life. I feel like there's times where I've even talked about feeling survivor's guilt because you do ask yourself, well, why am I still here? And why are others not? It's a challenging thing to get over but, ultimately, I had to realize that every day is a day that someone else doesn't get. Every day that I'm here on this earth is a day that I need to be counting my blessings and just being appreciative and grateful. Also, it makes me want to live the best life I can possibly live knowing that others didn't get the same chance that I did.

She leaves behind 68 grandchildren, 125 great-grandchildren, and at least 120 great-great-grandchildren. &ldquo;She was a pillar and stalwart to our family and provided much-needed love, support, and understanding to us all,&rdquo; Ford&rsquo;s great-granddaughter, Tanisha Patterson-Powe, said in a statement. &ldquo;She was the seed that sprouted leaves and branches which is now our family. God saw fit to make her the matriarch of your family and blessed us to be her caretakers and recipients of her legacy.&rdquo; Hester was born in 1905 and married John Ford at 14. She gave birth to the first of 12 children, one year later. John died in 1963. Following the death of Alelia Murphy at the age of 114 years in November, Hester became the country's oldest living person. &ldquo;She not only represented the advancement of our family but of the Black African American race and culture in our country. She was a reminder of how far we have come as people on this earth,&rdquo; Patterson-Powe said, per the AP. <a href="" target="_blank">Charlotte </a>Mayor Vi Lyles declared August 15th to be recognized as Hester McCardell Ford Day back in 2019.

Coogler prefaced his decision by first railing against the passing of Senate Bill 202: The fight for full enfranchisement is fundamental to the African-American struggle in this country and to this country&rsquo;s claim to functioning democracy. As an African-American, and as a citizen, I oppose all attempts, explicit and otherwise, to shrink the electorate and reduce access to the ballot. I say this as I return to Georgia, a state that holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Atlanta for eight months while filming my last movie. I have long looked forward to returning. But, when I was informed of the passage of SB202 in the state, and its ramifications for the state&rsquo;s voters, I was profoundly disappointed. Coogler added that pulling the film out of Georgia would negatively affect those working on the film and small businesses in the area. Kevin Winter / Getty Images"For those reasons, I will not be engaging in a boycott of Georgia," Coogler wrote. "Our film is staying in Georgia. Additionally, I have made a personal commitment to raise awareness about ways to help overturn this harmful bill." <a href="" target="_blank">Senate Bill 202</a>&nbsp;will shorten the absentee ballot request period, shorten the absentee application return deadline, limit the number of drop boxes and the hours which they are available, criminalize handing out water/snacks to voters in line, and much more.

The list of teams that will be participating includes AC Milan, Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Internazionale, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Tottenham Hotspur. The included teams will withdraw from the European Club Association. Michael Regan / Getty Images"We will consider all measures available to us, at all levels, both judicial and sporting in order to prevent this happening," the statement read. "Football is based on open competitions and sporting merit; it cannot be any other way." FIFA commented on the move saying it "can only express its disapproval to a 'closed European breakaway league' outside of the international football structures and not respecting the aforementioned principles." The UEFA also criticized the league in a statement: "If this were to happen, we wish to reiterate that we -- UEFA, the English FA, RFEF, FIGC, the Premier League, La Liga, Lega Serie A, but also FIFA and all our member associations -- will remain united in our efforts to stop this cynical project, a project that is founded on the self-interest of a few clubs at a time when society needs solidarity more than ever."

He helped produce the massive Culture II&nbsp;hit "MotorSport," featuring&nbsp;Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. Culture II&nbsp;was released in 2018 and is the last Migos project to be released.

"Bout That Time To Bring The Heat," Quavo&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">wrote in the caption</a>. The project could likely feature some bars about Quavo's ex, Saweetie. Earlier this week, the Migos rapper shared a preview for an upcoming song with lyrics dissing Saweetie.

"How many more?" Cuomo asked. "Die of the <a href="" target="_blank">pandemic</a>, dying from police shootings. George Floyd, Daunte Wright. I wonder if you'll remember their names six months from now because they'll be replaced by so many others." Michael Loccisano / Getty ImagesIn the midst of the Derek Chauvin trial, Wright was killed at the hands of the police, while body-cam footage of the officer who shot 13-year-old Adam Toledo was released as well. "Forget that police are trained to deal with non-compliance with force that is not lethal. Hey, comply or die," Cuomo said sarcastically. "And you know what the answer is. You really do. You don't like it, I don't like it, it scares me. Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons. Oh, I know when they'll change. Your kids start getting killed, white people's kids start getting killed."

Regardless, the comments have Knicks fans speculating about a possible move to New York in Williamson's future. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m glad you asked that,&rsquo;&rsquo; Williamson said following the game. &ldquo;New York is the mecca of basketball. I love playing here. I played here in college [at Duke]. This is my first time playing in the pros. This atmosphere, whether they&rsquo;re cheering for you or booing you, it&rsquo;s amazing. Outside of New Orleans, obviously, this might be my favorite place to play. I can&rsquo;t lie to you.&rsquo;&rsquo; Ronald Martinez / Getty Images<a href="" target="_blank">Williamson</a>&nbsp;went head to head with Knicks' forward Julius Randle, scoring&nbsp;34 points compared to Randle's&nbsp;33. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s a tough matchup,&rsquo;&rsquo; Randle said afterward. &ldquo;We know he&rsquo;s athletic. He&rsquo;s long, nimble on his feet, quick so he gets to a lot of balls and offensive rebounds you wouldn&rsquo;t think he&rsquo;d get to. He gets to those balls. He&rsquo;s a tough cover and finishes around the rim well, too.&rsquo;&rsquo; Williamson is set to become a&nbsp;restricted free agent in 2023.

He said that the studio said they strongly were against him doing Green Lantern. &ldquo;We shot a version of this scene with Green Lantern, but the studio really fought me and said, &lsquo;We really don&rsquo;t want you to do Green Lantern,&rsquo;&rdquo; Snyder said. &ldquo;So I made a deal with them, and they let me do this [instead].&rdquo; Zack Snyder's Justice League&nbsp;was released on HBO Max on March 18 and is over four hours long.

While LeBron introduced the LeBron 18 to the world last year, <a href="" target="_blank">Nike is now promoting the Nike LeBron 18 Low</a>, which is made for those who prefer a smaller profile when they are out on the court. There have been some unique colorways thus far, and now, yet another has surfaced on social media, this time via the Instagram account @okki0910. This new model is a reference to the Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 "Viotech" which released all the way back in 2003. As you can see from the image below, the shoe has a mostly brown upper all while the Nike swoosh is purple and the midsole has a brownish-orange tint to it. It's definitely not going to be everyone's cup of tea although if you like the Air Max 1 and you like Atmos, these should prove to be a solid cop. For now, release details on these are pretty scarce so there isn't much information to give just yet. In the meantime, keep it locked to HNHH as we will be sure to keep you updated on these.

In the past, it has always been a tradition for the championship-winning team in any sport to go visit the President at the White House and get their pictures taken. Whether it be the Clinton, Bush, or Obama administrations, we always saw NBA players make the visit to DC and it always turned out to be a joyous occasion. Due to Trump's policies, many NBA players felt it was necessary to step away from the tradition. After the Lakers won the championship in October, there was speculation as to whether the team would visit President Biden once he took office. In fact,&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">LeBron stated he was down to go to the White House</a> and would be eager to make it happen. Unfortunately, according to ESPN, it simply isn't going to happen this year. Harry How/Getty ImagesAs a direct result of scheduling conflicts and COVID-19 protocols, the Lakers simply won't be able to go to the White House. The team is set to visit DC for their upcoming game against the Washington Wizards, and that's when the visit was supposed to take place. Unfortunately, the pandemic has made it so that it won't be possible for the team to do it this year, which is disappointing considering this was the first opportunity for an NBA team to go to the White House, since 2016. Perhaps next year the NBA's championship-winning team will be luckier, especially as the pandemic begins to subside. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> Elsa/Getty Images[<a href="" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203965article, Lakers Won't Be Able To Visit President Biden Due To COVID-19blogs/4-2021/203965-lakers-wont-be-able-s.jpg1Post Malone Makes Diamond History With Latest RIAA Certifications by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 14:17 GMT Post Malone is&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">very recognizably one of the biggest&nbsp;names</a> in music right now. While he prefers to keep a lowkey social media presence and has yet to release a follow-up to his 2019 project Hollywood's Bleeding, he's been recognized by listeners&nbsp;and critics alike for his thrilling blend of multiple music styles, effectively keeping the audience engaged.&nbsp; Taking his success to even greater levels, the Grammy award winner's latest&nbsp;Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certifications are a testament to his commercial success.&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">Three of the 25-year-old artist's biggest singles</a> have all&nbsp;topped sales of 10 million copies or more,&nbsp;earning&nbsp;him three diamond plaques. At his age, he becomes the youngest artist in history to have a total of three diamond-certified singles.&nbsp; Frazer Harrison/Getty Images The singles that helped Posty&nbsp;make history include &ldquo;Congratulations&rdquo;&nbsp;with&nbsp;Quavo,&nbsp;&ldquo;Rockstar&rdquo;&nbsp;with&nbsp;21 Savage&nbsp;and&nbsp;&ldquo;Sunflower&rdquo;&nbsp;with&nbsp;Swae Lee. On Friday (April 16), Dre London, who discovered the critically acclaimed artist, took to Instagram to rave about Posty's success.&nbsp; &ldquo;Mama!! We did it again!!,&rdquo; he penned. &ldquo;This stuff don&rsquo;t&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">just happen in the movies it happens</a> in real life too!! Who would have ever thought your son from the streets of Brixton South London would have ever discovered the youngest artist in history to EVER have 3 diamond records. Congrats to my bruv @postmalone We did it!!&amp; we just getting started!!! #2021 #DreVision.&rdquo; Additionally, as his hit single "Rockstar" crossed the two billion streams threshold on Spotify, Posty further cemented his&nbsp;position as one of two artists to have more than seven songs streamed one billion times or more each on the platform. Justin Bieber is the only other artist to have achieved this.&nbsp;Aside from music, Malone is <a href="" target="_blank">set to star in Guy Richie's action-thriller&nbsp;</a><a href="" target="_blank">Wrath of Man</a>&nbsp;as a yet-to-be-named bad guy in the film.

After years of obscurity, the Dunk Low has returned to the forefront of sneaker discourse as fans have a renewed interest in one of the cleanest silhouettes to ever come out of a Nike factory. As a result of this popularity, we have seen a whole slew of colorways get made,&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">including a "Purple Pulse" model which was revealed just a few days ago.</a> Now, we have the official images for a "Yellow Strike" offering which seems to be of the same style as the "Purple Pulse" except for this time, it is not a women's exclusive. The sneaker has a mostly white base although the overlays are constructed with a white and yellow swirl. From there, the Nike swoosh is solid yellow which adds a dynamic glow to the overall look of the shoe. These are expected to drop sometime in the Spring so keep an eye out at your local sneaker shop for more details. In the meantime, let us know what you think of these, in the comments below.

He had numerous upcoming appearances scheduled as well, including one next month at a Texas bar.&nbsp;&nbsp; X fans hoping to catch a glimpse of the late icon at the show are not completely out of luck, however. The owner of the Wildcatter&nbsp;Saloon in Katy, Texas Justin told&nbsp;TMZ&nbsp;that he and his team grew up loving DMX and his music, so booking him had been organized well in advance.&nbsp;X was scheduled to play at the venue May 29th, but Justin says the event&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">will instead be made into a memorial concert</a> honoring him.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Theo Wargo/Getty Images TMZ&nbsp;reports the tribute show will still include the originally scheduled opening acts already booked for DMX's original performance. Tone Royal and hip hop/rock band&nbsp;Coozablack &amp; Sin City will open up the tribute, but Justin notes they're still in need of a headliner.&nbsp; The bar owner tells&nbsp;TMZ&nbsp;that the ideal performer would be someone&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">who was closer to the late rapper</a> to make the night more personal and special for fans, with Busta Rhymes, Trae the Truth, and Snoop Dogg being thrown out as early potentials. X&nbsp;died on April 9th after suffering an overdose that resulted in him losing the oxygen supply to his brain for nearly 30 minutes a week prior to passing.&nbsp; On his death,&nbsp;close friend of the rapper Snoop Dogg <a href="" target="_blank">optimistically put it</a>, "Legends never die, their soul will continue to bless the world and he was a great spirit who always looked out for everybody.

For starters, we were blessed with some new heat from Emotional Oranges. The R&amp;B group delivered their latest single, "Down To Miami" this week which features Becky G. Together, they offer a laidback and breezy record that's only fitting for summer nights. Toosii is still maintaining a steady momentum in both the worlds of R&amp;B and hip-hop. The soulful bars have made him one of the promising young artists in the game with tons of potential for big things in the future. This week, he returned with his latest single, "what it cost." The single serves as the latest offering from his forthcoming project,&nbsp;Thank You For Believing. It was only right that we included his latest single of this week's playlist update. Canadian singer Ruth B. released her last project in 2017, though she has offered a few EPs since. In June, she'll drop off her second studio album,&nbsp;Moments In Between. Her latest offering, "Situation" is a soft and calming effort with upbeat production that gives us a better look into what she has in store on her follow-up to&nbsp;Safe Haven.

The shoe was created back in 1997 and over the years, Jordan Brand has helped bring forth a ton of dope colorways. One of the models everyone loves is the blue and grey "Flint" offering which was an OG model of the shoe. Now, Jumpman is back with a new "Flint" model except this time around, the blue has been swapped out for red. As you can see in the official images below, these colors work perfectly together to create one of the best new Air Jordan 13 colorways we have seen in quite some time. If you like the "Flint" aesthetics but prefer a shoe that is mostly red instead of blue, then these are an absolute no-brainer. If you are hoping to cop a pair, you will be able to do so as of May 1st for $190 USD. There is a slight chance the shoe could be delayed so be sure to keep it locked to HNHH as we will bring you all of the latest sneaker updates.

He maintains a similar ethos to the hustlers-turned-rappers that came before him who kept a steady stream of music on deck. On Sunday, the rapper emerged with his latest single, "All Night Long." It's an ode to the almighty dollar sign and the unmatched hustle that has positioned him as one of the brightest young stars in the game.&nbsp; The&nbsp;Long Live The Kings rapper is only a few weeks removed from releasing his latest single, "Miseducation" ft. Lil Wayne. Hopefully, that's a sign that a new project is on the way soon.&nbsp; Check out Calboy's new song and video, "All Night Long" below and sound off with your thoughts in the comments. <strong>Quotable Lyrics </strong>On my block it's Zombieland as we chase dead man I got money on my brain, it's tied like headbands Told 'em once, won't tell 'em twice, and now ya mans dead Glock came with a switch, 6-0 so he was dead fast via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203960song, Calboy Is Getting To The Bag "All Night Long" On His New Singlebvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1The Rock Cops Massive $27.8 Million Mansion In Hollywood by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 13:07 GMT Dwayne The Rock Johnson is worth a whole lot of money and it is easy to see why.&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">From his lengthy career in the WWE</a> to his massive movie catalog, "The Rock" has proven himself to be one of the best entertainers out there. He has even contemplated a Presidential Run in the future although for now,&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">that seems like more of a pipe dream than anything else.</a> In the meantime, Johnson has used his wealth to purchase an incredible 3.67-acre property in Hollywood, worth $27.8 million. From the jump, The Rock will have some very famous neighbors as people like Denzel Washington, Sofia Vergara, Eddie Murphy, and even Sylvester Stallone live in the area.&nbsp; Eamonn M. McCormack/Getty Images for SonyThe place is fairly stunning as it features six bedrooms, 11.5 bathrooms, and some massive entertainment rooms. There is a gym, swimming pool, tennis court, and a gorgeous backyard that will provide The Rock with plenty of time to explore around the property. This place was originally built by Alex Van Halen, which just goes to show the vast range of celebrities that have lived here. Considering all of the amenities, it is easy to see why such a property would cost so much money.

He is currently facing charges of second-degree and third-degree murder as well as second-degree manslaughter. All of the witnesses have given their testimony <a href="" target="_blank">all while Chauvin decided to exercise his fifth amendment right</a>. Depending on how quickly the jury comes to a decision, we could very well have a verdict in the case this week. As a result, many are gearing up for the possibility of protests and unrest, should Chauvin be found not guilty. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, even the NBA is preparing for this as the league has sent memos to teams, preparing them for the possibility of protests amongst players and even some postponed games. Mario Tama/Getty ImagesWhile in the NBA bubble, players protested in the middle of the playoffs following the shooting of Jacob Blake. Not to mention, there were protests in&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">Minnesota this past week following the shooting death of Daunte Wright.</a> NBA players have always been active when it comes to social justice and it's safe to say many will have something to say about the verdict of the Chauvin trial. The case will most likely be updated this week so stay tuned as we will be sure to bring you the latest information. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> Ramsey County Sheriff's Office via Getty Images[<a href="" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203948article, NBA Prepared For Stoppages Ahead Of Derek Chauvin Verdictblogs/4-2021/203948-nba-prepared-stoppa-s.jpg1Shooting In Kenosha County Tavern Leaves 3 People Dead & 2 Injured by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 12:37 GMT Unfortunately for Americans, the reopening of the country as the COVID-19 pandemic comes to a simmer has inadvertently welcomed <a href="" target="_blank">back the reality of mass shootings</a>. Most recently, a shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin has left five men with gunshot wounds, three of which have died while the other two remain in critical condition. CNN&nbsp;reports that an unknown gunman opened fire both inside and outside the Somers House Tavern around 12:40am on Sunday morning. Sherrif Department head David G Beth reports that the shooter has yet to be identified and is still at large, but adds he is not believed to be a danger to the public&nbsp;since the&nbsp;men were targeted.&nbsp; Beth said, &ldquo;It sounds like one person got removed from the establishment and possibly came back a short time later&rdquo; <a href="" target="_blank">and began shooting</a>. &ldquo;We don&rsquo;t believe this was a random act,&rdquo; the sheriff continued. &ldquo;I don&rsquo;t believe that the people in this area are in harm&rsquo;s way because of the suspect still not being captured.&rdquo; Right now, it is unclear who or why the person was forced out of the tavern <a href="" target="_blank">or if there was more than one shooter</a>. More than 100 officers are currently working hard to search &ldquo;the area trying to come up with any video footage and anything that can help us at the scene right now,&rdquo; Beth said.&nbsp; Kenosha is also the city that saw the police shooting of Jacob Blake last year. Blake&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">was shot in the back seven times by police officer</a> Rusten Sheskey, leaving him&nbsp;severely injured.

Most recently,&nbsp;the Devil-filled visual for his latest single "Montero (Call Me By Your Name) and&nbsp;its accompanying Satan Shoes <a href="" target="_blank">provoked a very split reaction from audiences</a>, some of whom celebrated his creativity while others disapproved of the use of Satanist imagery.&nbsp; Additionally, the Georgia native caught flack from social media users last week&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">when a video of his mother begging for money on the street</a> surfaced. He has already previously addressed his relationship with his mother, who suffers from&nbsp;substance abuse. "She's an addict so we don't have the closest relationship. Even trying to get her better - things didn't quite work out. But there's still love...," he said at the beginning of 2020. Doubling down on those comments, the pop star took to Twitter to clarify he absolutely feels guilty about his mother.&nbsp; Jason Kempin/Getty Images "I hate speaking on my personal life," began the 22-year-old in a since-deleted tweet. He continued, "but y'all n*ggas don't know how many nights I've cried myself to sleep feeling guilty because nothing i tried would help my mom."&nbsp; He finished, "paint me as the bad guy all you want, but at the end of the day, you don't know me outside of this internet sh*t." This tweet-and-delete clarification from the Grammy winner&nbsp;comes after his father jumped to his defense on Instagram. "Despite what people say @lilnasx is the greatest kid a parent can be BLESSED with. Although his mom is in a&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">struggle with an addiction</a>&nbsp;she's STILL a QUEEN and he goes through great lengths to make sure we're taking care of," he wrote. He continued, "Those who have family members and friends dealing with addiction understands that there ain't enough money you can throw at this situation to make it right.

Despite all of this, Paul has won every single one of his fights and on Saturday night,&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">he defeated the likes of Ben Askren with a first-round knockout</a> that left many fans shocked. While Askren tried to get up, the referee deemed him unfit to continue which allowed Jake to walk away with the win. Due to the quickness with which the referee ended the fight, <a href="" target="_blank">many began to claim that the entire thing was rigged in Paul's favor</a>. Of course, Paul has a small stake in Triller, and since the fight was broadcast through Triller, there were some conspiracy theories floating around. Al Bello/Getty Images for TrillerJake Paul ended up seeing all of the allegations on social media, and this afternoon, he decided to respond. Taking to Twitter, Paul wrote, "Everyone saying the fight was rigged is tweeting off their moms WiFi." While this doesn't exactly prove anything one way or another, it's an indication that Paul has seen what you're all saying, and he doesn't appreciate the slander. From an objective standpoint, it was apparent from the beginning that Paul was the better technical boxer, and had the fight gone on longer, Paul probably would have finished the job. As true as this may be, the internet is always going to go for the more entertaining option. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203951article, Jake Paul Responds To Claims That Ben Askren Fight Was Fixedblogs/4-2021/203951-jake-paul-responds-s.jpg1XV Shares New Project "Soil" by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 12:05 GMT Rapper XV has remained a favorite from the blog era.

The rapper is readying a massive debut on 50 Cent's <a href="" target="_blank">upcoming&nbsp;BMF&nbsp;show</a> along with a slew of other stars. Over the past few months, she's offered a few updates on set but it appears that during those times when she isn't shooting, she's channeling 50 Cent's&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">online presence on social media.</a> Paras Griffin/Getty ImagesIt was only a few weeks ago when Kash Doll&nbsp;and Kevin Durant had a<a href="" target="_blank"> brief back-and-forth on Twitter debating who the real KD is</a>. Kash tweeted lyrics from JT's verse on "Said Sum (Remix)." "All these n***as wanna fuck KD," she tweeted before Kevin Durant reminded her that she isn't the only KD in the game. "You did not have to use those initials to get this tweet off... U have to relax with the KD talk, your name is KASHDOLL," Durant replied. The ongoing debate took a hilarious turn last night when Kash Doll revealed that she pranked Durant into thinking that his fanbase attacked her. She explained that she was on set for the final day of&nbsp;BMF&nbsp;filming with her make-up on from the show which included a black eye and a bloody nose.&nbsp; "Y&rsquo;all i FaceTimed Kevin Durant last night on set while my (black eye and bloody nose make up was on) and told him his fans did that to me bc of the KD argument," she tweeted. "y&rsquo;all should&rsquo;ve seen his face!!! He was so concerned until i started laughing then he hung up." <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> Ezra Shaw/Getty ImagesUnfortunately, documentation of this interaction hasn't been released to the public but she said there is a screenshot of his reaction on her phone. "He said that&rsquo;s yo problem you play too much," she added with a laughing emoji. She later confirmed that 50 Cent was on set while this happened, presumably laughing at the entire interaction.&nbsp; Check her tweets out below.&nbsp; via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203942article, Kash Doll Trolled Kevin Durant Into Thinking His Fans Jumped Herblogs/4-2021/203942-kash-doll-trolled-k-s.jpg1Carmelo Anthony Hilariously Fails The "Pass The Phone" Challenge by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 11:46 GMT <a href="" target="_blank">Carmelo Anthony's time with the Portland Trail Blazers has been a story</a>&nbsp;of triumph. Just over a year ago, Anthony was considered down and out, all while fans weren't giving him much of a chance at a comeback. In the end, however, Melo was able to prove everyone wrong and as a member of the Blazers, he has been impeccable. Players like&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum have completely embraced him, showing what an impact Melo has had thus far.</a> As one of the stars on the team, Anthony is always being asked to participate in extra-curricular team challenges that are meant for social media. For instance, over the weekend, Melo was asked to do the "Pass The Phone" challenge with other Blazers stars. For those who don't know, the challenge asks the first person to deliver a description of who they are passing the phone to, without naming that person. Then the next person does the same thing and the process repeats over and over. Steph Chambers/Getty ImagesUnfortunately, Melo did not get the message that you are not supposed to say the person's name. As you can see in the clip below, Melo immediately begins to describe Enes Kanter, and even says his name numerous times. Eventually, the clip went viral after being posted by HouseOfHighlights, and Melo couldn't help but laugh at himself as he took to the comments with some laughing emojis. To be fair, Melo is one of the older players in the league, so when it comes to TikTok challenges, we should all be giving him a break. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203943article, Carmelo Anthony Hilariously Fails The "Pass The Phone" Challengeblogs/4-2021/203943-carmelo-anthony-hil-s.jpg1Young Thug & YSL Score Win Big With 'Slime Language 2' Sales Projections by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 11:38 GMT Young Thug and the various talents under his Young Stoner Life imprint finally released <a href="" target="_blank">their long-awaited and highly-anticipated album&nbsp;</a><a href="" target="_blank">Slime Language 2</a>&nbsp;on Friday (April 18th).

According to these projections,&nbsp;Slime Language 2&nbsp;will most likely debut at the summit of the Billboard 200 chart.&nbsp; The compilation album is expected to move between 125,000 to 140,000 album-equivalent units within its first week, with 3,000 to 5,000 of those sales coming from pure album sales. This&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">is a&nbsp;stark contrast</a> to the pair's original&nbsp;Slime Language&nbsp;installment, which debuted at the 8th spot on the&nbsp;Billboard&nbsp;chart with 41,000 copies sold.&nbsp; Likely catching wind of the sales projections,&nbsp;Thugger took to Instagram to celebrate the news. "I just took a whole company number one," gushed the label head.&nbsp; &ldquo;I&rsquo;m ready to die about Future. I&rsquo;m ready to die by a Lil Baby,&nbsp;Durk&nbsp;And Uzi. I&rsquo;m ready to die by these people. You know what I&rsquo;m saying?&rdquo; Thug explained about the star-studded feature list of the project. &ldquo;If it ever comes down to it, this shit ain&rsquo;t got nothing to do with no music.

More importantly, the stories that were shared by fans and friends about&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">personal encounters</a> with X offered a glimpse into how much he often put others before himself. Evan Agostini/Getty Images<a href="" target="_blank">Desiree Lindstrom</a>, X's fianc&eacute;e, was by his side at the time of his passing. After his passing, Krystal Kills of Black Ink Crew revealed that Lindstrom got an X tattoo on her arm in dedication to the rapper.

Flights" by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 11:08 GMT One of the most promising new acts on the scene Lil Poppa has been busy&nbsp;kicking off the rollout of his highly anticipated debut studio project&nbsp;Blessed, I Guess.&nbsp;He's been teasing fans about the upcoming album for some time and this week treated listeners to&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">the brand new Toosii-featured single</a> "A.M. Flights."&nbsp;&nbsp; The&nbsp;result of the exciting collaboration between the relative game newcomers is a tune that shows the softer side of both artists. Inspired by the lovely lady in the Jacksonville native's life, who also stars in the video, the track pays ode to her being a positive presence in his life. As for&nbsp;his upcoming full-length project set to be released via Interscope Records, more details about the date of its release and guest&nbsp;features will be revealed sometime soon.&nbsp; Alongside debuting the track, the duo shared the accompanying&nbsp;visual.&nbsp;Tap into "A.M.

While many feel like De La Hoya should probably stay retired, he is adamant that he wants to be in the ring, and overall, it should prove to be a lucrative return for him, especially since he will be paired up with Triller who were responsible for the Jake Paul and Ben Askren fight. Last night,&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">De La Hoya got to do some commentary on the fight prior to the Paul Vs. Askren</a> bout and fans immediately felt like something was off. Throughout the entire proceedings, De La Hoya seemed to be high out of his mind and was saying a lot of nonsense all while saying "baby" about a dozen times in the span of just 30 seconds. Ethan Miller/Getty ImagesWhile it was a little unhinged, there is no denying that it was fun to watch, and fans immediately made note of that on social media. Pretty well every meme had something to do with Scarface or Dana White, <a href="" target="_blank">who made a snide comment about De La Hoya's drug use a few months ago</a>. Regardless of the jokes, De La Hoya seemed to be having a very good time, and it made for a fun broadcast that will certainly get people hyped for his comeback fight. Who do you think De La Hoya should fight this summer?

Even more tragically,&nbsp;the suspected gunman and sole person of interest&nbsp;in the case is the youngest brother of the rappers, Michael Sullivan.&nbsp; He was taken into police custody and underwent a psychiatric evaluation following the incident. Before recently, neither Slim Jxmmi or Swae Lee had opened up about what went down. As part <a href="" target="_blank">of his new Snapchat series&nbsp;</a><a href="" target="_blank">Swae Meets World</a>,&nbsp;the younger half of Rae Sremmurd discussed how painful the death was for him.&nbsp; Rachel Luna/Getty Images "My&nbsp;dad, my pops, yeah he&nbsp;passed away recently.

They previously debuted the single "<a href="" target="_blank">Step Child"</a> for the&nbsp;American Skin soundtrack. Last night's Triller Fight Club with Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren included an array of performances from some of the big acts in music such as Doja Cat, Justin Bieber, Saweetie, and more.&nbsp; Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesIce Cube and Snoop Dogg also <a href="" target="_blank">hit the stage </a>last night to perform some of the most iconic tracks in their catalog. Cube opened up with "Today Was A Good Day" before delivering the bass-heavy "You Can Do It." Snoop Dogg&nbsp;had a similar approach in his performance by opening up with a 90s classic "Gin &amp; Juice" before jumping into his early 2000s hit "Drop It Like It's Hot." Following the rapper's performance of solo cuts, they were joined alongside Too $hort and E-40 for the debut of Mount Rushmore.&nbsp;The as-of-yet-to-be-titled record is reportedly produced by Kato On The Track, Hip-Hop-N-More reports. It's an upbeat, bass-heavy West Coast party anthem. Snoop Dogg also had a hefty role in the evening, besides his performance duties. The rapper also served as a commentator throughout the evening.

During his time with the Golden State Warriors, he has been able to win three championships and is constantly making All-NBA Defensive teams.&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">These accolades recently led him to a bold proclamation as he said he was the best defender</a> to ever play the game. In his heart, Green truly believes he's the best and no one is going to tell him otherwise. Recently, John Salley sat down with VladTV for an interview and the former basketball star was asked about Green's comments. As you can imagine, Sallley was not sold on Green's assertions and even said the Warriors star was "Trippin." Carmen Mandato/Getty ImagesWhen asked who should be considered the best defender of all-time, Salley was quick to suggest that the honor should actually go to Dennis Rodman who won numerous titles with the Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons. Rodman was the rebound king and he was almost impossible to play against. Salley saw this first hand so it only makes sense he would pay homage to a Hall of Famer. Salley made sure to explain that he respects Green and everything he does although, at this point, Green has a long way to go before becoming the best ever. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203939article, John Salley Questions Draymond Green For Saying He's Best Defender Everblogs/4-2021/203939-john-salley-questio-s.jpg1Future, Rick Ross & More Attend Pharrell's South Beach Miami Hotel Launch by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 10:10 GMT Back in March, Pharrell and his business partner David Grutman&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">announced their intention to open up a brand new hotel</a> in South Beach, Miami.

He has caught the attention of various big artists and with each new song, it's clear that Keyz is getting closer and closer to a breakout hit. Recently, the artist came through with his latest single called "What Love" which features another up-and-comer in Calboy. The song has a dope trap beat that is filled with flutes and rattling hi-hats that prove to be quite catchy. From there, Keyz drops sung bars about his enemies and those who are rooting against him. Keyz notes that he doesn't always feel love but despite this, he is out to prove people wrong. Calboy's verse is a dope addition to the song and overall, it's a solid effort from both artists. <strong>Quotable Lyrics:</strong> Killing the vibe with the negative energy Knew I was hot so they try to belittle me Counting me out and they count to infinity Smoking this dope while I pop all my enemies via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203929song, Laney Keyz & Calboy Collaborate On Fresh New Banger "What Love"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Lil Durk's Smurkchella Ends In Gunfire, One Woman Injured: Report by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 09:56 GMT Fans have been long anticipating the return of&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">live concerts.</a> While certain venues across the South have allowed&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">several artists to perform</a> shows and make appearances, it's the festival setting that people truly miss. Last night, Lil Durk touched the stage in Arizona for Smurkchella where he brought out a slew of guests and performed some of his biggest hits. Unfortunately, the evening ended with a police investigation into a shooting that left one woman injured. Paras Griffin/Getty Images&nbsp;Per ABC 15, police were called to Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, AZ after a woman was injured during a shooting.&nbsp;Police said that a woman at the front of the stage was grazed in the leg by a bullet.&nbsp;Police said another person was also injured from scrapes after trying to flee the scene. Police said they did not apprehend any suspects. Footage of the incident emerged immediately after shots were fired. Many were seen scrambling to get out of the venue, resulting in several minor injuries. There was also a video of Lil Durk hopping off stage immediately after and nearly getting into an altercation with someone. It seemed that everything was going well prior to the shooting. The rapper brought out a few guests including Pooh Shiesty and Coi Leray who performed&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">"Back In Blood,"</a> and "<a href="" target="_blank">No More Parties</a>," respectively.

With fast hi-hats and snares, the song gives you that early to mid-2000s EDM feel all while incorporating rap elements and even some singing. On her latest effort called "SPEEDRACER," James links up with artist ilikebloo for a collaboration that acts as a perfect mesh of their respective styles. With this latest track, James raps over an instrumental similar to the one we described above. The lyrics are on par with the name of the song as we get some bars about fast cars and making money.

Since 2015, the rapper released five projects including his most recent effort,&nbsp;Flu Game. The project arrived on Friday, showing Tracey's versatility as an artist, especially with collaborations from both the UK and the U.S. The best moments on the project are when Tracey is left on his own. "Cheerleaders," for instance, is a shivering banger that unites Tracey with producers Kazza and Swidom. It's a perfect example of Tracey's ability to crossover into the ever-popular drill sound while keeping the essence of UK garage and grime infused into the vocal samples and his sharp flow. Check the highlight from AJ Tracey's&nbsp;Flu Game below. <strong>Quotable Lyrics </strong>I'll never hear the opps get play Unless it's on a drill ting or they trollin' Hear my tunes on dates when I'm bowling Check my BlackStar, bare pattern in golden That's what I thought I told them If they never heard, then I must show them I'm patrollin' and controllin' and it's stolen and it's holdin'<strong> </strong> via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203933song, AJ Tracey Lives His Life Like A Movie On "Cheerleaders"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Pete Davidson Censored For Asking Jake Paul A Sensitive Question by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 08:56 GMT <a href="" target="_blank">Many fans were surprised to see that Pete Davidson was one of the commentators</a>&nbsp;for the Jake Paul Vs. Ben Askren fight last night. In numerous clips, it seemed like Davidson was just looking to secure the bag and actually felt like the whole thing was a sham from the start. Not to mention, his dry humor didn't always land with the rest of the commentary team, especially when you see just how much Snoop Dogg was looking to avoid any sort of interaction with him. <a href="" target="_blank">At the end of the fight, Paul came out victorious</a>, and Davidson appeared to be quite shocked at everything that had gone down throughout the short first round. Prior to the match, Davidson actually got to interview Paul alongside rapper Jack Harlow. While the two seemed to be having a good conversation, there was one point where Davidson asked Paul a question that was immediately censored by the Triller production team. While we don't hear the question, Paul immediately says&nbsp;&ldquo;you can&rsquo;t joke about that.&rdquo; Some are speculating that Davidson asked Paul about CTE while others think it may have been about his sexual assault allegations. Regardless of what it was, the speculation has been rampant. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like we will get an uncensored version, anytime soon.

The rapper cackled as he marveled at his pop-prowess to propel the entire crew to the top of the Billboard 200. It's quite an impressive feat for any compilation album, really, especially when you think bout how many rappers he really brought into the game. The project unites Lil Baby with Gunna and Young Thug on "Paid The Fine" ft. up-and-comer from the YSL camp, YTB Trench, who holds down the hook. Baby kicks things off, reflecting on how far he's come in the rap game before Gunna and Young Thug swap bars on the second verse over Wheezy's concoction of his signature bass and dreamy vocal samples.&nbsp; It's a promising look at what we can expect from YTB Trench who still holds his own alongside the three rap giants. <strong>Quotable Lyrics </strong>Half a million dollars on me, I feel it in my chromosomes I don't talk to that bitch, when we meet up, she know I'm only bonin' Lifetime, send it, I made millions without a mobile phone Two hundred thousand stacked up I could bought myself, you need a drone<strong> </strong> via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203920song, Lil Baby Unites With Young Thug & Gunna On "Paid The Fine"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Nate Robinson Weighs In After Jake Paul's Win Over Ben Askren by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 08:35 GMT Jake Paul went&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">into the boxing ring last night and absolutely decimated Ben Askren</a> with a first-round knockout. <a href="" target="_blank">Despite claims that the fight may have been rigged</a>, there is no denying that Paul connected with a huge punch and that Askren simply wasn't ready for the boxing world. Paul's technical ability throughout the first few moments was impressive and it seems like had the fight gone on longer, Paul probably would have won anyway. Regardless of this,&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">fans are still giving their reactions to the ordeal and some even want their money back</a> as they felt like they got finessed by Triller. Now, some are even bringing up Nate Robinson, who was infamously knocked out by Paul back in November. Many noted that Robinson was able to last longer in the ring, which is ultimately a huge diss to Askren. Al Bello/Getty Images for Triller Robinson saw these comments and immediately took to Instagram where he noted that he is looking for a rematch against Paul. "I still want that rematch FOH," he wrote while reacting to Stephen A. Smith burner account meme. At this point, Paul is most likely looking ahead to more accomplished fighters like Dillon Danis, although perhaps Robinson can find another person to get in the ring with. For now, however, Paul will be basking in this win that has certainly brought forth a ton of controversy. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203921article, Nate Robinson Weighs In After Jake Paul's Win Over Ben Askrenblogs/4-2021/203921-nate-robinson-weigh-s.jpg1Conway The Machine Makes It A Drumwork Affair On "Sister Abigail" by itstheboombap0, 18 Apr 2021 08:33 GMT The Griselda takeover continues in 2021 and they are still maintaining a high standard with each project, even with the quick turnaround rates. This week, Conway The Machine let off his first project of the year (and surely not his last), La Maquina&nbsp;on Friday.

Asken was able to stand back up, but the ref decided to waive it off.

You're a bad motherfucker," Snoop Dogg said at the announcer's table. "I told y'all I would do it in the 1st round. I told you I'm a real fighter," Paul remarked. Paul warned that the fight wouldn't go the distance.&nbsp;&ldquo;I don&rsquo;t think the fight will last long enough for him to even think about taking me down,&rdquo; he said Wednesday, adding,&nbsp;&ldquo;My distance control is 10 times better than his. And if he does, he&rsquo;s going to get busted up on the inside. That&rsquo;s one thing we really worked on in this camp is my inside fighting game.

When asked to elaborate, she explained that she plans on sampling for the "rest of my life" and that the technique is her specialty: I think greatness makes people uncomfortable. And I think people try to come up with excuses to not like me and to make themselves feel better about their life. I don't get as offended as I used to, because there was a point in time where I was dragged for, like, two years on social media. I was trending on Twitter for some bullshit every other day. I never defended myself, because I'm not really a social media pop off-er&mdash;I'd rather just pop off in person. So overcoming those obstacles and those negative viral tweets was just to work super hard. I&rsquo;m gonna sample for the rest of my life; it&rsquo;s my specialty. Tons of people sample, but my samples just get the most recognition. Alberto E.

He continued to defend himself in two more tweets: I have a lot of confidence in my work ethic, I love to grind and to chase my goals. You can ask anyone who has been in my life. That being said, I am secure in who I am, and what I believe. I don&rsquo;t need football to make me feel worthy as a person. I purely love the game and everything that comes with it.

It's a public image that he carried with him from Three 6 Mafia's&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">heyday</a> but he made sure that it never affected his business, according to Crunchy Black. Frazer Harrison/Getty ImagesDuring a recent interview with VladTV, Crunchy Black recalled some of the strict rules that were put in place to make sure that no member of Three 6 Mafia went overboard with the vices. He explained that both Lord Infamous and Koopsta Knicca's death were from health issues, <a href="" target="_blank">not drugs</a>, because Juicy J made it clear that he wasn't playing.&nbsp; "Nah, none of us actually OD&rsquo;d or no shit like that," he said, adding that Juicy J took on a leadership role within the group to make sure everyone was on a straight path. "Juicy is the father of all of Three 6 Mafia and he would tell you, 'N***a, if you do too much? We fining you.' And he&rsquo;ll fine the fuck out of you and Paul would be with him with that shit. I appreciated them niggas for them fines. I&rsquo;m still here &rsquo;cause if it wasn&rsquo;t for the fines, I probably would be gettin&rsquo; high as fuck.&rdquo; <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> Mike Brown/Getty ImagesHowever, it wasn't simply taking substances that would spark a fining but rather, allowing the drugs to&nbsp;interfere with any of their operations. "[Juicy J didn't fine Three 6 Mafia] if we got high but if we let the drugs get in the way of studio, shows, important stuff that they would set up for u because we wanted them to do it and that was they job," he explained. "And then we'd come behind them when they set up big shit like this and then we don't show up or we show up fucked up on drugs."

"It wasn&rsquo;t hard it wAs more like go more harder show em this shit run to deep," he wrote. "Put it like this u can hate on me and hate real or u can respect me and become more realer choose wisely cuz I ain&rsquo;t letting up."

The rapper emerged this week with his new single, "K.A.T." The song's production is similar to Problem's "Don't Be Mad At Me" which lit up last summer. Tae Bae oozes charisma and confidence in this fun record as he discusses the array of women in his life.&nbsp; Check the song out below. <strong>Quotable Lyrics </strong>I bang for the weekend I got drank, I got drugs, we can be friends I heard baby got that WAP, I go deep in Better check them stats, do that dance just like Megan Let me hit you from the back via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203871song, Tae Bae Is Ready To Light The Summer Up With "K.A.T"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Quavo Hits YK Osiris With The Ankle-Breaker During Basketball Game by itstheboombap0, 17 Apr 2021 14:00 GMT <a href="" target="_blank">YK Osiris tried to show off his basketball skills last weekend </a>although his attempt largely backfired on him as he could be seen getting blocked by a guy who wasn't that much bigger than him. While his shot was fairly decent, it also seemed like Osiris simply didn't have the dexterity necessary in order to play defense while out on the court. Unfortunately for him,<a href="" target="_blank"> those suspicions were confirmed recently as he took to the floor against Quavo.</a> This basketball matchup was formed as both men were in Atlanta for Legends Day. As you can see in the Twitter clip below, Quavo had the ball and was coming down the court all while Osiris was following him. That's when Quavo made a quick move that ultimately put Osiris on skates. Osiris eventually fell out of frame, and Quavo went on his way. Frazer Harrison/Getty Images for The Recording AcademyQuavo has proven himself as someone who is not to be messed with when he is out on the basketball court. <a href="" target="_blank">He's a multi-sport athlete and over the years</a>, he has made some pretty impressive moves that are undeniable if you are into basketball. If anything, Osiris could learn a thing or two from the Migos artist. In the future, it will be interesting to see just how much Osiris is able to improve. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> Gabe Ginsberg/Getty Images via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203872article, Quavo Hits YK Osiris With The Ankle-Breaker During Basketball Gameblogs/4-2021/203872-quavo-hits-yk-osiri-s.jpg1Jimmy Butler Calls Heat "Soft" Following Yet Another Loss by itstheboombap0, 17 Apr 2021 13:37 GMT <a href="" target="_blank">Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat were expected to thrive this season</a>&nbsp;especially after going all the way to the NBA Finals last season. Unfortunately for Butler and company, things haven't gone according to plan as the Heat are seventh in the Eastern Conference and have lost 10 out of their last 16 games. In fact, after last night's loss to the T-Wolves,&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">Butler called out his teammates for being too soft.</a> &ldquo;We&rsquo;re just being soft. That&rsquo;s it,&rdquo; Butler. &ldquo;Not getting into bodies, scared of some contact. Soft overall.&rdquo; Butler made sure to note that he actually believes this is a good thing as it will force the Heat to look within and improve. Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images"It&rsquo;s not frustrating because we do it so often,&rdquo; Butler said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s almost like it&rsquo;s expected, in a bad way to put it. We just think we&rsquo;re such a good team, and then reality hits us, we&rsquo;re humbled. And I&rsquo;m glad because that&rsquo;s what this game does for you. Home, away, no matter what opponent you&rsquo;re playing against, you just stroll into the game thinking you&rsquo;re nice, you&rsquo;re good, this is what happens. With the regular season coming to a close within the next month, the Heat don't have much time to get it together before the playoffs. Despite this, the team is full of players with deep-run experience which will certainly come in handy once the playoffs start. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images[<a href="" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203867article, Jimmy Butler Calls Heat "Soft" Following Yet Another Lossblogs/4-2021/203867-jimmy-butler-calls-s.jpg1Young Thug's YSL Dominates This Week's Fire Emoji Playlist by itstheboombap0, 17 Apr 2021 13:30 GMT Ever since last summer, fans have been anticipating the release of Young Thug and Young Stoner Life's&nbsp;Slime Language 2. The sequel to the 2018 compilation project has been in the works with several release dates teased until it was finally released onto streaming platforms on Friday. This week's Fire Emoji playlist update is filled with new music from&nbsp;Slime Language 2, and more, so here's your breakdown: The YSL camp land three songs this week on the playlist. Stacked with tons of guest features,&nbsp;the YSL camp really outdid itself on the latest compilation project. Young Thug brings on his young signee Yung Kayo to connect with Lil Uzi Vert on "Proud Of You." We also got the Travis Scott-assisted "Diamonds Diamond" with both Thug and Gunna, though Twitter spent a good portion of Friday debating whether it was better than Future and Drake's collaboration of the same name. Finally, the TikTok-friendly anthem, "Ski" with Thug and Gunna also made its way onto the playlist. Polo G has been having a hell of a run in the past year which seems to be setting him up for an even bigger year ahead. "RAPSTAR" is expected to&nbsp;be his first #1 single. If that's the case,&nbsp;unroll the red carpet for a new titan in the rap game. Finally, we have new music from IDK who linked up with Offset on "Shoot My Shot."

Every year,&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">Jumpman chooses a new silhouette for the WINGS sneaker</a> and in 2021, they have decided to go with the Air Jordan 5 Low which is certainly an underrated choice. In fact, this year, Jordan Brand has opted to go with something classy yet stylish at the same time. As you can see in the images below, this shoe is going to have a mostly black upper all while gold highlights can be found throughout. On the sides, we can see the numbers 20 and 21 written in gold, which is meant to be a tribute to all of the students who are graduating this year. It's a nice little touch that will mean a lot to all of the people out there who are graduating. There is no concrete release date for these just yet although it is believed that they will be dropping in May. Let us know if you plan on grabbing a pair, in the comments below.

The pandemic appeared to allow him to tighten the squad up, after the initial 1017 Eskimo roster fell flat. However, artists like Pooh Shiesty and Foogiano are holding down the streets with Big Scarr right behind them. The Memphis rapper emerged on Friday with his debut on the label,&nbsp;Big Grim Reaper. With 17 songs in total, Scarr offers a well-rounded introduction into his world, though members of the 1017 team are scatted across the tracklist. Among the project's many highlights is "Ballin In LA," a bass-heavy, flex-heavy banger that finds Big Scarr swapping bars with Gucci Mane and Pooh Shiesty. The three rappers maintain that they stay dangerous in L.A., which&nbsp;Gucci describes as "the place where rappers get extorted." Pooh Shiesty slides on the second verse before Scarr closes the track out on the third. It's an excellent display of the level of talent that 1017 is bringing to the table. Scarr is clearly aiming to follow the success of Shiesty and Foogiano with his latest tape. <strong>Quotable Lyrics </strong>I'm all in Cali, dressed in Bally, strapped up at the Fortress These shoes I got on cost at least 10x your pair of Forces Ballin' in L.A., the place where rappers get extorted But I'm a walkin' murder charge in case I can't afford it via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203861song, Big Scarr Taps In With Gucci Mane & Pooh Shiesty On "Ballin In LA"bvc/187/40384-wrbb-return-boombap.jpg1Paris Hilton Explains How Sex Tape Gave Her PTSD by itstheboombap0, 17 Apr 2021 12:50 GMT <a href="" target="_blank">Paris Hilton became the subject of headlines back in 2004 when her sex tape</a>&nbsp;with then-boyfriend Rick Saloman was posted on the internet. The tape was actually posted by Saloman himself, unbeknownst to Hilton. Now, there are various laws against this sort of thing but at the time, there was nothing Hilton could really do. Someone she trusted had betrayed her and over the years,&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">it left various emotional scars that have yet to go away.</a> During an interview with Vanity Fair, Hilton admitted that the whole ordeal gave her PTSD and that she still deals with the effects of what happened. As she noted, the tape was meant to be between her and someone she cared for at the time. Mike Coppola/Getty Images for American Heart Association&ldquo;That will always be something that will hurt me for the rest of my life,&rdquo; Hilton said.&nbsp;&ldquo;It&rsquo;s always there in the back of my mind. When it happened, people were so mean about it to me. The way that I was spoken about on nightly talk shows and the media, to see things with my family was just heartbreaking. I would be in tears every single day, I didn&rsquo;t want to leave my house, I felt like my life was over.&rdquo; Now, Hilton is in a much more loving relationship as she is currently engaged to Carter Reum who is her long-term boyfriend. Hopefully, Paris is able to heal from everything that has happened. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> Kevin Winter/Getty Images for dcp[<a href="" target="_blank">Via</a>] via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203862article, Paris Hilton Explains How Sex Tape Gave Her PTSDblogs/4-2021/203862-paris-hilton-explai-s.jpg1NBA Youngboy's GF Rumored To Be Pregnant With His 8th Child by itstheboombap0, 17 Apr 2021 12:37 GMT It's been a year filled with&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">hardships</a> for NBA Youngboy who is currently incarcerated. The rapper has been in police custody since mid-March and from a recent update from his lawyer, it appears the rapper will have to do&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">some sort of prison time.</a> The unfortunate circumstances mean that he won't be able to provide for his family or be with his children for an extended period of time. To make matters worse, it appears as if he's expecting another child. Prince Williams/WireImage/Getty ImagesEarlier today, NBA Youngboy's girlfriend<a href="" target="_blank"> Jazlyn Mychelle </a>shared photos to the 'Gram which appear to show her pregnant. Fans immediately began speculating that she's currently expecting NBA Youngboy's child which is reported to be his eighth. The news arrives shortly after Michelle shared an update from the rapper. "He said 'it's cool cooler than my ice im waiting to put back on my beck its all good believe that' -- Sincerely Kentrell," the message reads. Yaya Mayweather, who also has a child with Youngboy, shared a similar message to her 'Gram, though she added,<a href="" target="_blank"> 'GIRL BYEEE' </a>in the caption. Before&nbsp;rumors of Jazlyn Mychelle's pregnancy emerged, the rapper&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">appeared in front of a judge</a> where he pleaded not guilty to firearms charges. Additionally, he's expected to face a judge on April 20th on "state weapons and drug charges."

The Jordan Delta has been a source of success for the brand and now, they are right back with the Jordan Delta 2 which is loaded up with some React cushioning. New colorways of this sneaker continue to be revealed and now, the brand is showing off a model that is meant to be a women's exclusive. This colorway is mostly made with some tan tones on the top, all while orange and blue are thrown in on the tongue and the midsole to add some contrast. These colors all come together extremely nicely and it makes for a unique offering that should appeal to a broad audience. This sneaker can be worn either on the court or in a more casual setting, which certainly makes these a solid cop. As for the release date, these should be hitting the market soon, for a price of $130 USD. As always stay tuned to HNHH as we continue to bring you all of the latest sneaker news.

When you spend so much time in the WWE, you can certainly afford some of the finest things life has to offer, including a gorgeous mansion in Marina Del Rey.

Considering Ball was drafted to the Lakers, these were massive shoes to fill and it immediately became clear that such pressure was simply too much for the young player. While Lonzo remained a solid talent in the league, many scouts and fans were shifting their attention to Lonzo's youngest brother LaMelo who, at the time, was playing with his brother LiAngelo in Lithuania. By all accounts, it was clear that LaMelo was the most talented Ball brother. From his passing to his shooting and to even his defense, LaMelo could do it all, and every time he stepped onto the court, it seemed like he was putting up otherworldly statistics. He eventually went and played in Australia for the Illawarra Hawks where, once again, he proved himself to be the most talented player in his 2020 Draft class. Due to positional need from the Minnesota Timberwolves and Golden State Warriors, LaMelo was passed up in the first two picks and eventually went third to the Charlotte Hornets, where he now gets to play for the legendary Michael Jordan. Jacob Kupferman/Getty ImagesWith LaVar making even more bold assertions about LaMelo, many were worried that he would face the same fate as his brother. In pre-season, LaMelo was making some beautiful highlight reel passes although he struggled to score and his shooting was not very accurate, to say the least. In his first career NBA start, Melo struggled mightily and it immediately led some to ring the alarm bells. Fortunately for the Hornets, the NBA, and all of the fans, a beat was awoken inside of LaMelo and he quickly became the most exciting part of the season. You see, due to the shortened offseason, the NBA's product this season has been fairly uninspired. It's clear that the players are tired and the plethora of injuries to teams like the Lakers are living proof that the NBA should have started in February as opposed to December. LaMelo, however, had all the time to prepare for this season and his energy was truly infectious. Every single night, LaMelo was giving us highlight-reel passes, while improving his scoring ability. In some games, LaMelo was able to explode for an impressive 30 points, and garnered praise from the likes of LeBron James and Draymond Green. Not to mention, these results were helping his Hornets get deep into the playoff race, especially with the Eastern Conference proving to be full of parity in terms of the mid-pack teams. Every single thing Melo did pointed to him being the obvious favorite to win the Rookie of the Year. Sure, Anthony Edwards and Tyrese Haliburton have been good, but no rookie has shown more superstar potential than LaMelo. Ball has been averaged&nbsp;15.9 points, 6.1 assists, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.3 steals per game this season and there is no doubt that these numbers will only improve over time. Unfortunately, LaMelo hit a horrendous setback on March 21st, just a day after LeBron James suffered an ankle injury. While going for a layup, Ball fell awkwardly on his wrist and ended up fracturing it. At first, it was reported that LaMelo would have to miss the rest of the season, although now it is believed that Melo will be able to come back in early May. Despite this good news, it's safe to say that Melo will be put on a minutes restriction for a few games and even at that, there still won't be much time left in the season. While his Hornets have put up a solid fight, this does not help them in the playoff race, especially since they are on the verge of being overtaken for eighth place. Sure, getting LaMelo back will certainly help them, however, coming off of a wrist injury isn't exactly easy when you're a basketball player. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="" title="" /></div> Harry How/Getty ImagesPerhaps the worst part for LaMelo from a personal standpoint is the fact that his Rookie Of The Year case has now been tampered with. If he isn't able to come back at full strength, then players like Tyrese Haliburton and Anthony Edwards will most likely be put ahead of him. One would just have to go back to last season when Ja Morant won Rookie Of The Year over Zion Williamson, despite Zion's dominance when he did play. Overall, Morant had more games to choose from and that's ultimately why he won. The very same thing could happen to LaMelo, which would certainly be a shame. Prior to his injury, LaMelo was having a rookie season that we seldom get to see in the NBA. It was one of the most exciting things fans got to see in a very long time and for once in the team's history, the Charlotte Hornets were actually relevant. Fans outside of North Carolina were tuning in to see Hornets games just to see Ball play, which is exactly what small-market teams like to see. Now, the Hornets are fading back to obscurity, and they're going to have to rely on rushing LaMelo back if they want to regain some of that juice.&nbsp; This NBA season has been one of the worst in recent memory. The players are physically and emotionally exhausted, while the league's best players are getting injured on a nightly basis. Through no fault of his own, LaMelo was given the tall task of carrying the entire season and while he was well on his way to doing so, fate had other plans. Even if he does come back, it just won't be the same. With the schedule so overloaded with games in order to get the season in before July, Melo risks aggravating his injury, and if he were to&nbsp;somehow gets hurt again, then the season will be that much worse off. Ball's rookie season could have been one to remember and in some ways, there is still hope that he can fulfill that prophecy. For now, however, fans will just have to settle for quite possibly one of the most depressing seasons in professional sports history. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203849article, LaMelo Ball And The Rookie Season That Could Have Beenblogs/4-2021/203849-lamelo-ball-rookie-s.jpg1Jake Paul Gets Called Out For Trying To Act Like Conor McGregor by itstheboombap0, 17 Apr 2021 10:53 GMT <a href="" target="_blank">Jake Paul is a controversial figure</a>&nbsp;when it comes to YouTube and boxing. For many professional fighters, Paul has no business being in the boxing ring and they even feel like he is doing the sport a disservice. There are various other people out there who think Paul has earned his spot in the ring and that he actually has quite a bit of talent that could take him far if he sticks with it. On Saturday, he will have his toughest test yet as he&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">goes up against Ben Askren in a match that will determine how serious he actually is.</a> Yesterday, the weigh-in took place in Atlanta and as one can imagine, Paul appeared to be in great shape. However, it was his antics that stole the show as it was fairly obvious to everyone that he was trying to act like Conor McGregor the whole time. Ethan Miller/Getty ImagesFrom his poses to his facial expressions, Paul was doing everything that McGregor would during a weigh-in. The two are both controversial and it's clear that Paul wants people to think of him when they also think of Conor. Of course, MMA and boxing fans took exception to this, as Paul was roasted for what he tried to pull off. Regardless, Paul comes into this fight as the favorite, and it should prove to be a compelling fight. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203850article, Jake Paul Gets Called Out For Trying To Act Like Conor McGregorblogs/4-2021/203850-jake-paul-gets-call-s.jpg1Snoop Dogg Joins Ne-Yo & Kent Jones On DJ D-Nice's "No Plans For Love" Remix by itstheboombap0, 17 Apr 2021 10:51 GMT Many are still in quarantine so, it's only right we tip our hat off to DJ D-Nice who played a major role in keeping us entertained in the early months of 2020.

Now,&nbsp;Askren is retired from Mixed Martial Arts and is taking his talents to the boxing ring. On Saturday, <a href="" target="_blank">Askren is going up against Jake Paul and surprisingly</a>, there are a whole lot of doubters out there, with many claiming that Paul is a lock to win the fight. Despite this, most people on the internet would prefer that Askren wins, as Paul isn't exactly the most likable character out there. Yesterday, the weigh-in took place in Atlanta and while Paul seemed to be in excellent shape, Askren appeared to be in a much different state. In fact, Askren pulled up to the weigh-in with a dad-bod, almost as if he hasn't been doing any sort of training for this fight. Ethan Miller/Getty ImagesTwitter immediately caught on to his appearance and rushed to the platform to deliver a plethora of jokes at his expense. Some noted that it seems like Askren simply doesn't care about the fight and would rather just show up for the money. Others correctly noted that plenty of other fighters with dad-bods have won in the past and that his physical appearance shouldn't have any sort of effect on whether or not he's able to win. Let us know who you think is going to win this fight, in the comments below. via: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>203852article, Ben Askren Roasted For His Dad-Bod Prior To Jake Paul Fightblogs/4-2021/203852-ben-askren-roasted-s.jpg1Bino Rideaux & Drakeo The Ruler Come Alive On "Incredible" by itstheboombap0, 17 Apr 2021 10:28 GMT The West Coast is alive and well these days, especially with Drakeo The Ruler back on the streets.
