According to the man he was told no because his finger nails were colored. In the video the Mayweather is heard responding "You got painted nails, I don't take pictures with guys with no painted nails". As expected the young man was dejected. "Damn bro. Floyd is a homophobe. You guys saw that first bro. Floyd didn't want to take a photo with me because my nails are painted. Bro really?" he asked rhetorically. While the boxing promoter isn't a fan, the male nails the trend continues to soar in popular culture.

Titled "King Kong Riddim," the cut features three of Hip-Hop's hardest rappers in Jay-Z, Jadakiss, and Conway The Machine and features Backroad Gee and in the snippet we can hear Jada and Jay drop the kind of bars you'd expect to hear from them during their block-huggin' days. With Kiss rapping about being "wild boys/King Kong of the cowboys/you see the blood shed after you hear the the loud noise," and Jay spitting about Brooklyn being a zoo with heads walking around with "banana clips," y'all know this one is gonna be for the heads. Unfortunately we didn't get any bars from Conway The Machine but fans know that man does not disappoint and if he's on a track with Kiss and Hov, y'all know he's going to bring the heat of three summers on it. We can't wait to hear this joint in it's entirety. Hopefully a video drops with it.

The oldest sons of the Yonkers rapper have been officially named the administrators of his estate which is potentially worth at least six figures. Dark Man X's family issued a statement announcing the late rapper's oldest sons-Xavier Simmons, Sean Simmons and Tacoma Simmons, all with his ex-wife Tashera Simmons-have been appointed as temporary co-administrators of his estate. The decision was handed down by Westchester county Surrogate's Court on Monday, October 25. "They will now exclusively manage the affairs of their late father's estate," reads the statement. "The estate has retained entertainment attorney Ron Sweeney of Ron Sweeney and Company to exclusively handle all entertainment related matters. Estate Attorney, Herb Nass is the attorney for the Earl 'DMX' Simmons estate and the sons as co-administrators." The tumult surrounding DMX's estate was due to the rapper passing away without a will. X's fiancee, Desiree Lindstrom, petitioned to be his estate administrator but she was denied by a judge. Most recently, a <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1047933/georgia-woman-claims-to-be-15th-child-of-dmx-in-estate-battle/" target="_blank">Georgia woman named Raven Barmer-Simmons has come forward claiming she is Simmons' daughter</a>, which would place his total number of children at 15. Needless to say, paternity tests to establish who's who, for the record, are forthcoming.

On Twitter, a fan took a dig at the Macaroni Wit Da Cheese by saying he doesn't have any songs without features, and the original Coke Boy shut the fan down. Playing on the popular Squid Game memes that have cropped up on social media, Twitter user @sticktalkz asked posed the question, "for the next game, you need to name FIVE French Montana songs without features" using a caption of the maskless figures who worked in the deadly facility. As the tweet gained traction, the Morrocan rapper and Max B affiliate fired back with a list of tracks proving that he's had quite a number of singles featuring just his voice. From French Montana's tweet in response: Ain't worried about nothing Sanctuary F*ck with me get bag Don't panic Shot caller Everything's a go Famous Devil want my soul Henny and my 44 What it look like Salam alaikum Hotel bathroom I'm so special Water Now eat a d*ck I'm droping a solo track this week Welp, there's that. Fans of Biggavelli and the Coke Boyz wave are well aware that Montana has a bevy of songs on his own but does have a number of collaborations that, at several junctures, he stood out the most. Of course, Twitter being the toxic cesspool it can be at times, they're trying to flip Montana's response back on him as an L but the fact is, a lot of those joints he named are indeed dope and no, we're not in the Coke Boyz camp or anything but folks thirsty to get clout chips will do anything to slam someone online without fear. As Montana said, he's set to drop something this week so stay tuned. Keep scrolling to peep the reactions.

Do we say Big Sean five times in the mirror or Candyman? Just askin.'

His manager gifted him the exact Rolls-Royce he used to rent to keep appearances. As spotted on <a href="https://www.complex.com/music/drake-gifted-rolls-royce-phantom-used-to-rent-keep-up-appearances" target="_blank">Complex</a> October's Very Own turned up for his 35th birthday over the weekend. As expected there was a theme to the festivities as he and his guests were in full Narco mode. <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/future-and-drake-producer-d-hill-has-died/" target="_blank">Champagne Papi</a> was dressed as "Chico Amante," which translates to "lover boy" in Spanish. The look included a Stetson hat, a tan fringe jacket and a bolo tie. Naturally he was given some presents and the one from his manager Future The Prince took everyone by surprise; even his die-hard fans. His long-time friend and former DJ tracked down the Roll-Royce Drizzy used to rent back in the day for the look. He detailed the car's history in a very detailed but inspirational Instagram post. "Back in 2007 we used to finesse this Rolls Royce Phantom rental to convince people in the city we were destined to make it. I used to scrape together 5k a month somehow to keep up appearances." he wrote. He went on to put an obvious disclaimer on anyone thinking they just have to manifest their future without putting in the work. "Even though I don't recommend putting yourself in financial trouble for material things I realize now that this was just my way of extreme manifesting. I needed to see it and feel it and have it to believe that I could see and feel and have anything I wanted. Today in 2021 my brother @futuretheprince tracked down the exact car I use to stress over and gifted it to me...it's mine now. Manifestation complete." <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CVbov3nl1eu/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CVbov3nl1eu/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by champagnepapi (@champagnepapi)</a> Aside from the Phantom he was also gifted a flooded pendant with chain from Young Thug.

When 343 Industries first showed off Halo Infinite, it received heavy criticism from gamers. Xbox apologized<a href="https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/halo-infinite-graphics-explained-xbox-series-x/" target="_blank"> for showing off a watered-down version</a> of the highly anticipated game. 343 Industries managed to get back in the good graces of Halo fans thanks to great reactions following multiplayer technical previews. However, there were still worries about Halo Infinite's campaign mode. Monday (Oct.25), 343 Industries dropped a roughly 6-minute trailer for Halo Infinite's campaign, and it's going to take the game in a new direction. As first revealed, Halo Infinite's revamped campaign is more of an open-world adventure than a more linear story mode we have grown accustomed to in previous Halo games. The trailer showed off plenty of combat involving Master Chief's new grappling hook, his new AI companion called "The Weapon," created to stop his old buddy Cortana. The sprawling open-world features forward operating bases, a garage, and enemy bases. We also see that the legendary Spartan will be taking on a bevy of new enemies, including multiple bosses, throughout the campaign. Another surprising reveal is the fact Halo Infinite's campaign will be introducing RPG-like features. Master Chief will now earn XP that players can use to unlock upgrades to his Spartan armor and learn new techniques. Despite the co-op campaign and Forge modes being delayed to 2022 to ensure the game keeps its December 8 launch date, Halo Infinite is shaping up to be the game Xbox Series X owners were hoping to get their hands when the next-gen console first launched. You can peep the campaign overview trailer and reactions to it in the gallery below. <center><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=XCbMVbeKlCg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/XCbMVbeKlCg/default.jpg" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> - Photo: 343 Industries / HALO Infinite 1. now THAT is what I wanted to see from a Halo campaign December 8th can't get here soon enough <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/HaloInfinite?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">#HaloInfinite</a> <a href="https://t.co/uA9wdp7NYv" target="_blank">https://t.co/uA9wdp7NYv</a> &mdash; Parris (@vicious696) <a href="https://twitter.com/vicious696/status/1452625435880132610?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">October 25, 2021</a> Parris is happy, that is a good sign. 2.

The inventor of the dance, Shawn "Jeranimo" Oliver of Rumpletilskinz fame has reportedly passed away. Few details are known about Oliver's passing, but Jazz from the group, The U.N., shared a tweet on Monday (October 25) mourning the loss of his Long Island brethren in Jeranimo.

In the flick, Phife is pretending to punch Jeranimo, who dramatically appears as if he's knocked out. Jeranimo joined the Leaders crew as a dancer and was a part of the larger New School Society that included his Hip-Hop group, Rumpletilskinz, famous for its single "Attitudes," a high-energy track that showcased the abstract rapping abilities of Sha-Now the Remedy Man, the Capital LS, and Jeranimo with R.P.M. on the boards. Prodigy used the hook in his classic track "Keep It Thoro" and while the Rumpletilskinz only released one album, they have appeared on both Leaders Of The New School albums on the tracks "Sound Of The Zeekers" and "Spontaneous (13 MCs Deep)."

As spotted on Nice Kicks the emerging designer has been spotted holding down <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1035087/nike-opens-the-lebron-james-innovation-center/" target="_blank"><strong>LeBron James'</strong></a> and <strong>Maverick Carter's</strong> clothing label. While UNINTERRUPTED is largely synonymous with the hit talk series their brainchild has successfully executed some noteworthy collaborations with Sue Bird and the Space Jam franchise. The appointment was announced via the brand's Instagram account. "Proud to welcome @uninterrupted's new creative director, Salehe Bembury. Big things coming soon" accompanied an image of James shaking Bembury's hand. For those not in the know the Syracuse University alumni is valid when it comes to the fashion game. He designed for YEEZY, The GAP and Cole Haan. He was also responsible for the 2 Chainz inspired Chain Reaction trainer during his tenure as the Vice President of Men's Footwear at Versace. <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CVRA08bPVnY/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CVRA08bPVnY/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Salehe Bembury (@salehebembury)</a> In a exclusive statement to <a href="https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2868764-exclusive-uninterrupted-hires-salehe-bembury-as-creative-director-for-apparel" target="_blank">Bleacher Report</a> he detailed his enthusiasm about the role.

While it is unclear what his plans are for UNINTERRUPTED it is obvious that LeBron and Maverick trust his eye. "With UNINTERRUPTED, we intend to create product that leaves the audience with a feeling" he explained. "It's that feeling when you reach into a new jacket and there's a pocket exactly where you wanted it to be.

But that isn't keeping Paramount from dropping another installment into the franchise and director Steven Caple Jr. announced on Instagram that Transformers: Rise of The Beasts has officially wrapped production. Sharing a photo of himself driving the truck better known as Optimus Prime with a caption that reads "That's a wrap," the Creed II director seems more than confident that he'll be able to right the wrongs of the previous Transformers films. <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CVOw5z2r9TP/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CVOw5z2r9TP/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Steven Caple Jr. (@stevencaplejr)</a> As per <a href="https://hypebeast.com/2021/10/transformers-rise-of-the-beasts-production-wrap-optimus-prime-set-photo" target="_blank">Hypebeast</a>, the new film aims to give fans that nostalgic feeling that's been missing while introducing some new elements to the world of the Autobots. Looking at the truck that is Optimus Prime, it does more closely resemble the OG truck from the 80's than the newer "stylish" model used in the Michael Bay films. For that, we're grateful. "You have the Autobots and the Decepticons, and I would say my new flair to this is the Terracons," he said. "The Terracons are a new threat to Optimus Prime, and it's something I pride myself on when entering the franchise. I've done Rocky with Creed, and you bring the nostalgia that fans want, but also bring something they aren't expecting, and the Terracons are that." Well, the franchise could definitely use some new blood as viewers have grown tired of the same ol' Autobots versus the Decepticons storyline over and over again. Luckily Steven Caple Jr. seems like he's up to the monstrous task of doing just that. Transformers: Rise of The Beasts is set to drop on June 24, 2022. via: <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1048648/transformers-rise-of-the-beasts-wraps-production-optimus-prime-pic/" target="_blank">https://hiphopwired.com/1048648/transformers-rise-of-the-beasts-wraps-production-optimus-prime-pic/</a>225838News, Newsletter, Transformers, 'Transformers: Rise of The Beasts' Wraps Production Optimus Prime Piblogs/10-2021/225838-transformers-rise-b-s.jpg'Insecure' Back: Fans React To Issa Dumping Lawrence, & Tiffany Being an AKA & More In The Season 5 https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/issa-dumps-lawrence-insecure-season-5-premiere/features/blogs/dablazefm-insecure-back-fans-react-issa-dumping-lawrence-tiffany-be/Posted by dablazefm0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dablazefm-insecure-back-fans-react-issa-dumping-lawrence-tiffany-be/#commentsMon, 25 Oct 2021 16:26 GMTSource: Glen Wilson/HBO / Glen Wilson/HBO <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1033315/hbo-insecure-trailer-for-final-season/" target="_blank">Insecure</a> is back, and so are the emotions the show always invokes out of its viewers. The moment we have been waiting for and at the same time dreading has arrived, the final season of the HBO hit dramedy, Insecure, has begun. The first episode aptly titled, "Reunited, Okay?!" sees Issa, Molly, Kelli, Tiffany, and her husband Derek return to their alma mater Stanford for their 10-year reunion, where a whole lot of reflection takes place. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://hiphopwired.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/43/2021/10/16351706802277.jpg?strip=all&#038;quality=85" title="" /></div> Source: Raymond Liu / HBO During a panel where Issa falls flat, she begins to ponder her future and her current professional trajectory. Molly's dating life is back to being in shambles after she and Andrew broke up. After bumping into an old friend with benefits, she's wondering if she should go back to being more like her younger self. Kelli questions her legacy after a misprint labels her dead while fondly remembered for her ability to do a good stanky leg. Kelli, who has easily become the MVP of the show due to her comedic timing, questions the feeling of only being seen as a joke. Nothin' sadder than a sad stanky leg. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/InsecureHBO?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">#InsecureHBO</a> <a href="https://t.co/4J2pnsgPUR" target="_blank">pic.twitter.com/4J2pnsgPUR</a> &mdash; insecurehbo (@insecurehbo) <a href="https://twitter.com/insecurehbo/status/1452458532368896001?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">October 25, 2021</a> Tiffany is, well, just being Tiffany, but her character did draw the ire of the AKAs.

Right on cue, he has apologized for the offensive music video. According to <a href="https://www.tmz.com/2021/10/24/j-balvin-apologizes-for-perra-video-with-black-women-on-leashes/" target="_blank">TMZ</a>, J Balvin issued a public apology on his Instagram page for having Black women on leashes while on all fours with prosthetics to make them look like dog people. "Not just that, but some of the Black people are in cages at certain points, Tokischa is depicted in a dog house throughout the video and eating from a bowl ... and the most striking image is when J Balvin himself is walking a couple of Black ladies on leashes."

We get that the song revolves around a canine theme, but this was truly in poor taste. Aside from everyday critics calling out the Colombian artist for the racist and sexist video, Colombian Vice President and Chancellor Marta Lucia Ramirez also voiced his displeasure and took J to task for the offensive visuals. After getting the backlash, the video was taken down and yesterday (October 24) J took to IG to apologize saying "That's not who I am. I'm about tolerance, love and inclusivity. I also like to support new artists, in this case Tokischa, a woman who supports her people, her community and also empowers women." The man even apologized to his mother before thanking everyone for listening to him. Guess we'll just have to wait and see if his apology is enough to get him back in the good graces of his offended fan base. .<a href="https://twitter.com/JBALVIN?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">@JBALVIN</a> apologizes for the video of &quot;Perra&quot; with <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Tokischa?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">#Tokischa</a>.

Kyrie Irving was not in the building, nor has he seen an NBA court since the <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/brooklyn-nets-sit-kyrie-irving-vaccine/" target="_blank">Brooklyn Nets GM Sean Marks announced</a> that Irving would be benched because he refuses to get vaccinated against COVID-19, but his "supporters" were definitely on the scene. Ahead of the Nets matchup with the Charlotte Hornets, a large group gathered outside the Barclays Center to protest New York City's vaccine mandates demanding Irving be allowed to play. Per New York protocols, the all-star point guard is not allowed to play in Nets home games, with the organization opting to put its foot down and announcing it would rather bench Irving instead of allowing him to play in away games. Irving "supporters" showed up wearing shirts with slogans "Stand with Kyrie" and chanting "Let Kyrie play," the protest quickly got out of hand, giving off Jan.6 insurrection vibes with protestors storming past barricades. Protesters just broke through barricades to Barclay&#39;s Center, barricades thrown and security rushed to close the doors and people chanted &quot;I&#39;m with Kyrie&quot; <a href="https://t.co/IBx2qgUir0" target="_blank">pic.twitter.com/IBx2qgUir0</a> &mdash; Scootercaster (@ScooterCasterNY) <a href="https://twitter.com/ScooterCasterNY/status/1452356134266888194?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">October 24, 2021</a> According to <a href="https://twitter.com/meanbarb/status/1452351474659430406" target="_blank">Newsday reporter Barbara Baker</a>, supporters of President Donald Trump and people holding Black Lives Matters signs were in the group, plus a reference to the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol was heard according to a source. Things got so out of hand the Barclays Center was put on lockdown briefly, but it was quickly opened back up once security and law enforcement got things under control. The Barclays Center confirmed the lockdown happened in <a href="https://twitter.com/NotoriousOHM/status/1452388462162812931" target="_blank">a brief statement</a>. "Barclays Center briefly closed its doors today in order to clear protestors from the main doors on the plaza and ensure guests could safely enter the arena. Only ticketed guests were able to enter the building and the game proceeded according to schedule." Since Irving decided to be a voice for the "voice for the voiceless," he has become the champion of such individuals like U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump Jr., who have been in staunch opposition of the vaccine mandates. Cruz is vaccinated. It would be a safe bet to assume Trump Jr. has also got the shot. Irving's stance on the COVID-19 vaccine may have resulted in him being snubbed from the NBA's recently announced top 75 greatest players list. Some internet sleuths noticed some deleted articles suggesting that Irving was indeed part of the list. Twitter users also pointed out the NBA's YouTube page shared a highlight reel of Irving showcasing his on-court skills.
