Unlike consoles which are super difficult to acquire alone, bundles are usually much easier to get your hands on due to the already high price. These two bundles include three games, a controller, a charging dock, and a GameStop gift card. Bundle A: PlayStation 5 Console Ratchet &amp; Clank Rift Apart PowerA DualSense Charging Dock Death Stranding Director's Cut Call of Duty: Vanguard GameStop Gift Card Bundle B: PlayStation 5 Console Ratchet &amp; Clank Rift Apart PowerA DualSense Charging Dock Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut Call of Duty: Vanguard GameStop Gift Card No word on how much each bundle cost, but we expect it to be in the $700-$800 range. The announcement of this bundle comes on the heels of Sony reportedly ramping up PS4 production again to address the PS5 shortage. We <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1103752/sony-making-more-ps4-to-address-ps5-shortage/" target="_blank">previously reported</a> the company is looking to manufacture about 1 million PS4 consoles being that it uses significantly less advance parts and is less expensive to make.

MTV Raps and Rap City, the Tri- State area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut had the gift Video Music Box, hosted by VJ Ralph McDaniels and the Vid Kid aka Lionel C. Martin. It was like Santa came into our homes every day at 3:30pm, but instead of a chimney, he came through channel 31. When the introduction of the show kicked off, a large boom box in front of the NYC skyline and Whodini's "5 Minutes of Funk" playing in the background, viewers were hypnotized for an hour with videos from local, now globally recognized artists, and any party anywhere in the area. In 1983, a music show called Studio 31 was released, which eventually morphed into Video Music Box-airing Monday - Friday (and early Saturday afternoons), unless a soccer game came on and we would be almost brought to tears (#iykyk). Since it was WNYC-TV, public television, there just wasn't a guarantee that VMB would get played. In a conversation with Ralph Mc Daniels about the program disruption he said, "I didn't know until the day of either." But, when the show did come on, Uncle Ralph (as the VMB audience lovingly calls him) would be at every party, concert, talent show or dancerie in NYC and New Jersey, and we all felt like we were personally invited. It was reaching neighborhood celebrity status if you happened to be at an event that Ralph was and got the opportunity to make a "shout out" on air-VMB is the first place where "shout outs" were made famous (more on that to come). Minister Louis Farrakhan once told Ralph, "You have a big responsibility because people don't read, they watch TV." For the show and Ralph to have played such a momentous role in Hip-Hop, not enough people are aware of the cultural impact that Video Music Box has had and continues to impart. In addition to the show, McDaniels and Martin have individually directed and produced hundreds of music videos, and films, such as Wu-Tang Clan's "C.R.E.A.M," the Stop the Violence Movement's "Self Destruction," Tupac's "Toss It Up," and Netflix's Roxanne, Roxanne biopic, among others as well as collaborative efforts via their Classic Concepts production company. Ralph has surely collected the largest amount of visual Hip-Hop content, spanning from the early 80's to present day. Some of that content has new life in the digital era and has gone viral: think, the clip of Jay-Z at Summer Jam, everyone hyped behind him, while he's looking absolutely unbothered, or Wendy Williams being asked about her engagement ring at Kiss FM NYC studios, with A Tribe Called Quest as guests. Both clips are VMB archives and both have been seen by millions, some who don't have a clue about what Video Music Box exactly is. In speaking with Ralph about the origin of VMB, he said, "I've been through the eras of Run-DMC, Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest, Biggie, Nas, Jay Z. It was my job to pay attention to it all. Looking forward to the next sound...that's happiness. I want people to know what I know." Getting in the know and securing knowledge resonated through the show. Now Uncle Ralph is also part of that historyand he got his well-deserved flowers and acknowledgments in late 2021 on Showtime when the network airing a documentary You're Watching Video Music Box, directed by rapper and mogul Nas. In the doc, not only did you learn the importance of the show and the talent who started on VMB, but it made you feel like you were sitting on the couch with any one of us from NY/NJ/CT. On behalf of anyone who has ever seen an episode, given a shout out, ran from the bus stop to make it in time to hear the intro music, had your video played on the show, or has aspired to do so, we thank you, Uncle Ralph. We thank you for playing the entire videos of "Protect Ya Neck," "The Symphony" and "Self Destruction." We thank you for "Doin' it up at The Arc," one of the many clubs that were frequented on the show. Thank you for giving us a video show on local television because most of us didn't have cable in the 80's. Lastly, thank you for capturing and sharing almost 40 of the 50 years of Hip-Hop.

The incident took place in Los Angeles in the city's downtown section. Local outlet Fox 11 News broke the story first. The incident took place outside near the Soho Warehouse early Thursday morning (Jan. 13), although it isn't known if Ye was an attendee of the establishment. More from <a href="https://www.foxla.com/news/video-kanye-west-punches-fan" target="_blank">Fox 11</a>: The alleged victim said that around 3 a.m., he spotted the Chicago native leaving the SoHo Warehouse located near the intersection of Santa Fe Avenue and 7th Street. The venue is an exclusive members-only club that includes a rooftop bar and a restaurant. The fan says when he approached Ye, the rapper jumped out of his car, punched him, and left. The rapper could face battery charges in the incident. Reps for Ye have yet to issue a statement, nor have there been any announced charges from LAPD. This story is developing. - Photo: Getty via: <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1103835/ye-aka-kanye-west-under-investigation-for-allegedly-punching-fan/" target="_blank">https://hiphopwired.com/1103835/ye-aka-kanye-west-under-investigation-for-allegedly-punching-fan/</a>234237News, Video, Kanye West, Newsletter, Ye, Ye AKA Kanye West Under Investigation For Allegedly Punchinblogs/1-2022/234237-ye-aka-kanye-west-u-s.jpgHHW Gaming: Sony Reportedly Planning To Make More PS4 Consoles To Address PS5 Shortagehttps://hiphopwired.com/1103752/sony-making-more-ps4-to-address-ps5-shortage/features/blogs/dablazefm-hhw-gaming-sony-reportedly-planning-make-more-ps4-console/Posted by dablazefm0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dablazefm-hhw-gaming-sony-reportedly-planning-make-more-ps4-console/#commentsThu, 13 Jan 2022 19:00 GMTSource: SOPA Images / Getty The <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/927326/xbox-series-x-ps5-review-roundup/" target="_blank">PlayStation 5</a> is still <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1060718/sony-cutting-ps5-production-chip-shortage/" target="_blank">difficult to acquire</a>, and that will be the case for the foreseeable future due to a shortage of the next-gen console. Sony has a solution for that problem, make more PS4 consoles. Sony initially said it planned to stop PS4 production at the end of 2021. Thanks to the global chip shortage affecting the company's ability to manufacture PS5 consoles, Sony is possibly doing an about-face on that plan. According to a report from <a href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-01-12/sony-tackles-playstation-5-shortage-by-making-more-ps4-consoles" target="_blank">Bloomberg</a>, Sony wants to address the PS5 shortage issue by making an additional million PS4 consoles being it uses significantly less advanced plus much cheaper to produce. Now granted, this is not what people who already have a PS4 console want to hear because they want to upgrade to the PS5. But, for those who don't have either, this could be considered good news to gamers because PS4 still has some life left in it. With games like <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/976627/horzion-forbidden-west-ps5-gameplay-footage/" target="_blank">Horizon: Forbidden West</a> and <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/spiderman-2-wolverine-god-of-war-ragnarok-playstation-showcase/" target="_blank">God of War: Ragnarok</a> coming to the PS4 and giving players the option to upgrade to next-gen when they find a PS5 console, this could be a win for them. Again, this is speculation, but we wouldn't be shocked if Sony does indeed go in this direction. Let's continue to hope President Joe Biden and House and Senate Democrats get that legislation passed to get these bots out of here so gamers can get their hands on a PS5. - Photo: SOPA Images / Getty via: <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1103752/sony-making-more-ps4-to-address-ps5-shortage/" target="_blank">https://hiphopwired.com/1103752/sony-making-more-ps4-to-address-ps5-shortage/</a>234223Gaming, HHW Gaming, Newsletter, Playstation 4, PlayStation 5, sony, video games, HHW Gaming: Sony Reblogs/1-2022/234223-hhw-gaming-sony-rep-s.jpgBart Scott Says Bills QB Josh Allen Should Take Viagra Ahead Of Gamehttps://hiphopwired.com/1103803/bart-scott-says-bills-qb-josh-allen-should-take-viagra-ahead-of-gamefeatures/blogs/dablazefm-bart-scott-says-bills-qb-josh-allen-should-take-viagra-ahead/Posted by dablazefm0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dablazefm-bart-scott-says-bills-qb-josh-allen-should-take-viagra-ahead/#commentsThu, 13 Jan 2022 18:56 GMTSource: United Archives / Getty The<a href="https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/nfls-cole-beasley-refuses-to-take-coronavirus-vaccine-twitter-attacks/" target="_blank"> Buffalo Bills</a> and the <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/cam-newton-mac-jones-new-england-patriots-reactions/" target="_blank">New England Patriots</a> are set to face off against one another in a wild card NFL contest this coming weekend with single-digit temperatures forecasted. Bart Scott, a former football star, had some advice for Bills QB Josh Allen, stating he should take Viagra ahead of the contest. Scott, who became a meme and viral legend via his "Can't Wait" quip, now spends his days as a member of ESPN's morning program, Get Up. Yes, we realize the pun just sitting right there. "Take some Viagra before the game, baby," Scott said. "That'll get that circulation going right. Viagra was first a heart medicine, right? So, it builds up circulation, which makes sure it gets circulation to the feet." Scott's co-hosts had nothing but questions and chuckles in response to the advice, but there might be some science to Scott's suggestion. Viagra was initially given as a medicine to increase circulation for heart patients when doctors discovered its effects on the lower extremities. We don't need to spell that out, right? Back in 2015, an Argentine soccer team took the medicine to help fight off altitude sickness as seen in this article from <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/early-lead/wp/2015/02/19/argentine-soccer-team-takes-viagra-to-combat-altitude-sickness/" target="_blank">The Washington Post</a>. Dating back to 2006, studies have been established pointing to the drug's usage among cyclists and other reports examining Viagra as a performance-enhancing drug. Many of the latter claims have been disproven but the circulatory benefits of sildenafil, the scientific name for Viagra, can't be disputed. Josh Allen might just up to warm up with heaters on the sidelines, we imagine. "Josh Allen listening? Can people get this message to him? Vi-a-gra. Take a viagra before the game, baby." - Bart Scott Added: "A lot of NFL players, at least in my day, took viagra."

Jennifer Hough has dropped the harassment lawsuit against her. As spotted on <a href="https://www.complex.com/music/jennifer-hough-voluntarily-dismisses-harassment-lawsuit-against-nicki-minaj" target="_blank">Complex</a> the Queens, New York native got some good news regarding some potential legal troubles that originated with her husband Kenneth "Zoo" Petty. On Wednesday, January 12 Jennifer Hough's lawyer confirmed that his client has dropped the "Super Bass" rapper from the suit. "The case was voluntarily dismissed as to Nicki in NY," Hough's lawyer, Tyrone Blackburn, told Complex. "The case against Kenneth is ongoing." Back in September of 1994 Hugh accused Petty of raping her for which he served four years in prison. The attorney went on to claim that she is not in the clear just yet though. "This does not mean that Nicki Minaj is in the clear," Blackburn added. "In fact, she's probably in a worst position now than prior to when the case started. So, I would say, stay tuned." Jennifer Hough has voluntarily dismissed her harassment lawsuit against Nicki Minaj. <a href="https://t.co/imTin0smfG" target="_blank">pic.twitter.com/imTin0smfG</a> &mdash; Rap Alert (@rapalert6) <a href="https://twitter.com/rapalert6/status/1481352835572936707?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">January 12, 2022</a> Fast forward to August of 2021 Hugh filed a harassment lawsuit against the celebrity couple citing that the duo attempted to silence her via intimidation tactics and bribery. That following month she appeared on The Real to detail the alleged rape. Since then Nicki has vehemently denied the accusations. "During the call, I never asked her to change her story; I never offered her any money in return for a statement, and I did not threaten her with any type of harm if she chose not to provide a statement," she said in a formal statement to Judge Eric Vitaliano. "In fact, I emphatically told her that I did not want her to lie about anything and to tell the truth about what she had just revealed to me only if she was comfortable with doing so."

As a leader of the Black Arts Movement that first began in 1965, Baraka was acclaimed for his expression of the Black experience through his poetry such as "It's Nation Time" and his written work beginning with Blues People: Negro Music in White America. The film, which gets its title from the poem Baraka performed on HBO's Def Poetry Jam, takes an in-depth examination of his family, focusing also on his widow, artist, and activist Amina Baraka as the guiding light. There is also insight given to the tragic murders of his daughter Shani (noted as one of the first openly gay Black activists) and his sister Kimako as well as the rise of his son, poet <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/931043/newark-ras-baraka-covid-19-shutdown-measures/" target="_blank">Ras Baraka</a> to his current position as the mayor of Newark. The film will also look at the city of Newark throughout the decades as its Black community felt the impact of systemic oppression through local government policies and law enforcement, and show how that community organized to resist against it. Ms. Hill is among those interviewed in the documentary, which is directed by Udi Aloni and Ayana Stafford-Morris. She shares executive producer credits with screenwriter Oren Moverman. Ras Baraka is also interviewed along with his daughter, Amandla as well as Larry Hamm, the Chairman of the People's Organization for Progress. "Spanning decades of social activism, poetry, music, art, and politics, this kaleidoscopic family saga is framed by on-camera interviews with Ms. Lauryn Hill, rare archival footage, and revealing personal testimonials," distributor Corinth Films states in press releases for the documentary. "And as we connect with the iconoclastic poet, and his tight-knit family, a portrait of a city emerges with an inspiring call to arms in the fight for class and racial justice." Why is We Americans will open at the IFC Theatre in New York City on January 14th. It is also slated to run at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles being held in April.

On Wednesday (Jan. 12), the pair issued a joint statement saying that the two would be parting ways, prompting some expected responses from the Twitter masses. Taking to Momoa's Instagram page, the statement of the split was eloquent and kind as expected of such a long partnership. From the IG post: We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times... A revolution is unfolding ~and our family is of no exception... feeling and growing from the seismic shifts occurring And so~ We share our Family news~ That we are parting ways in marriage. We share this not because we think it's newsworthy ~ But so that~ as we go about our lives we may do so with dignity and honesty. The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived. We free each other ~to be who we are learning to become... Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life &amp; our Children Teaching our Children What's possible ~ Living the Prayer May Love Prevail J &amp; L Momoa and Bonet began dating in 2005 after Momoa was introduced to his future wife in a jazz club, and were married in 2017. Momoa stated in previous interviews that Bonet was a dream woman to him, dating back to when he was just eight years old. The pair have two teen children together, and Momoa helped Bonet raise Zoe Kravitz from Bonet's previous relationship with musician Lenny Kravitz. On Twitter, considering the adoration that Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet gained over the years, the reactions have been all over the place. <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CYprLX4pTdW/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CYprLX4pTdW/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Jason Momoa (@prideofgypsies)</a> - Photo: Getty 1.

Now Roddy Ricch is the latest big name that the Rona might've come into contact with and due to possible exposure to the virus, RR will not be able to take the stage at his scheduled gig on Saturday Night Live. <a href="https://variety.com/2022/music/news/roddy-ricch-saturday-night-live-covid-snl-1235152694/" target="_blank">Variety</a> is reporting that the "Late At Night" rapper has pulled out of his upcoming SNL appearance this Saturday (Jan. 15) due to COVID exposure on his team. SNL moved quick to replace his absence and were able to get the Jack Antonoff-led band Bleachers to take his place on such short notice. See you Saturday! <a href="https://t.co/pK3BjxbZcH" target="_blank">pic.twitter.com/pK3BjxbZcH</a> &mdash; Saturday Night Live - SNL (@nbcsnl) <a href="https://twitter.com/nbcsnl/status/1481364347855249413?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">January 12, 2022</a> That was hella quick. With the <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/omarion-omicron-variant-black-twitter-reactions/" target="_blank">O-Rona</a> spreading like wildfire these days, Ricch has become the third artist to have to cancel and SNL appearance this season and likely won't be the last as even vaccinated people are vulnerable to the latest variant. "In October of 2020, Morgan Wallen's scheduled appearance was canceled by the show after photos emerged on social media of him breaking protocol just days before the show by socializing in Alabama without a mask at a crowded bar and a house party. He posted an apology soon later, saying he respected the show's decision and noted that although he had not tested positive, "my actions from this past weekend were pretty short-sighted, and have obviously affected my long-term goals and my dreams," he said. The show rescheduled his appearance for several weeks later." Charlie XCX was also scheduled to perform on the final show of 2021 but with the positivity rate for COVID skyrocketing like it was 2020 again, the show decided to cancel not only Charli's performance but also the cast and crew itself as they didn't want to risk anyone getting infected. It was a hella struggle episode if you ask us but it wasn't their fault. Luckily it's looking like the Omicron infections are peaking as cases have begun to slightly dip but it feels inevitable that another variant will eventually make it's debut and wreck havoc on the world once again.

We all remember the Pok mon GO mobile game app. We remember that it started out as something fun for anime fans or anyone who just enjoyed that kind of thing, but it quickly devolved into a public safety hazard for the accident-prone. What probably wasn't on any of our radars regarding the dangers of the game, was the possibility that police officers might be so distracted by the virtual Pok mon hunt that they would ignore crimes that were happening around them. And yet... According to <a href="https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/12/us/los-angeles-officers-fired-playing-pokemon-go-trnd/index.html" target="_blank">CNN</a>, now-former Los Angeles Police Department officers Louis Lozano and Eric Mitchell were fired in 2017 after their patrol car's in-vehicle dash-cam caught them ignoring a robbery call so they could chase after imaginary figures on a screen instead of robbery suspects. Capt. Darnell Davenport reportedly heard the call come in while he was on his way to investigate an unrelated homicide. From inside his car, Davenport could see the Macy's at Crenshaw Plaza that was being robbed. He could also see a police car in a nearby alley that left the scene without responding to the call-Lozano and Mitchell were sitting in that car. Davenport later questioned the two officers about why they didn't take the call. Both officers claimed they never heard the call come in because it was really loud where they were located. Mitchell is quoted as saying there was "a lot of music" and that it was "really loud in the park," while Lozano said, "We have no control over the system and all the loud noise-it was loud." But they were both lying their little blue a***** off. Lozano and Mitchell tried to challenge their firings, but a California appellate court upheld their firings Monday and stated in the ruling that they were caught "willfully abdicating their duty to assist a commanding officer's response" and that they were "disingenuous and deceitful in their remarks" to superiors, according to <a href="https://www.courts.ca.gov/opinions/documents/B307412.PDF" target="_blank">court documents</a>. The ruling was largely made based on the fact that Lozano could be heard on the dash-cam recording saying "screw it" shortly after the call came in and Mitchel was heard telling his partner that a "Snorlax just popped up at 46th and Leimert." (Apparently, a Snorlax is a rare Pok mon.) The LAPD investigation also found that the two went on discussing the game for "approximately the next 20 minutes." I mean, at least they were out harassing imaginary Pok mon instead of Black people, amirite? &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; via: <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1102969/court-upholds-firings-of-ex-lapd-cops-who-ignored-robbery-call-to-play-pokemon-go/" target="_blank">https://hiphopwired.com/1102969/court-upholds-firings-of-ex-lapd-cops-who-ignored-robbery-call-to-play-pokemon-go/</a>234175News, Court Upholds Firings Of Ex-LAPD Cops Who Ignored Robbery Call To Play Pok mon GOblogs/1-2022/234175-court-upholds-firin-s.jpgNelly Responds To Woman Who Claims She Returned $300K & Only Got $100 Rewardhttps://hiphopwired.com/1102851/nelly-woman-returned-300k-reward/features/blogs/dablazefm-nelly-responds-woman-who-claims-she-returned-300k-only-go/Posted by dablazefm0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dablazefm-nelly-responds-woman-who-claims-she-returned-300k-only-go/#commentsThu, 13 Jan 2022 00:32 GMTSource: Scott Legato / Getty We are only a couple of weeks into the new year and the internet is already interneting. <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1025579/ashanti-closes-door-on-nelly-reunion-by-announcing-shes-booed-up/" target="_blank"><strong>Nelly</strong></a> says that a woman's claims about returning luggage filled with money to him are false. As spotted on <a href="https://www.complex.com/music/nelly-responds-claim-he-lost-300k-rewarded-person-found-it-100-dollars" target="_blank">Complex</a> the St. Louis, Missouri native has no idea what an unidentified woman is talking about on social media. Last week she took to Instagram and claimed she found a duffle bag that contained over $300,000 dollars in cash. While it isn't clear where she found it or how she knew it belonged to Pimp Juice, she went on to return it to him and only was awarded a mere $100 dollars. In the clip the woman can be seen with some of her friends and as a man narrates the alleged jig. "We up here at the bowling alley, she found Nelly bag, it had $300,000 in it," he says while laughing at her. "And guess what she do? She gave it back." The man then goes on to say she only got one hundred for her kindness. "What they give you? Tell 'em what they give you." He points the camera at himself, saying, "They gave her $100 f***ing dollars. ... They gave her $100 for giving him back $300,000." Naturally, the story quickly picked up traction throughout several high-profile media outlets, prompting <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/972062/ti-tiny-nelly-sexual-assualt-allegations/" target="_blank">Nelly</a> to clear the air. In the comment section of The Neighborhood Talk Mo wrote "Cap...SUUUUUUUPPPPPEEEEEERRRR CAAPPP." He followed it up with another comment saying he did not fumble the bag. "I didn't lose sh*t idk what bag or who's bag they talkin bout but it dam show wasn't mine."

Per <a href="https://www.theverge.com/2022/1/11/22868220/xbox-forced-crossplay-warzone-halo-infinite-issues" target="_blank">The Verge</a>, Xbox gamers are making it very clear they are tired of being forced into crossplay with PC players. Before it became an issue, crossplay was a big request from Xbox and PC gamers, with Microsoft being firmly behind the feature. Now, as cheating becomes more rampant in free-to-play online shooters, Halo Infinite and Call of Duty: Warzone, Xbox gamers are now demanding that Microsoft introduce some sort of opt-out feature. Both titles listed above force Xbox players to face off against PC gamers in featured playlists in the games. Forced crossplay is a scam by Microsoft," one post on <a href="https://forums.halowaypoint.com/t/forced-crossplay-is-a-scam-by-microsoft/483900" target="_blank">Microsoft's Halo Waypoint forums</a> said. "Forced crossplay is a mistake," a <a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/halo/comments/qurwr9/infinite_forced_crossplay_is_a_mistake/" target="_blank">Redditor wrote</a>, while others just want an option to disable crossplay all together. "Now that cheating in Halo is confirmed on PC, can we have to option to opt-out of cross-play?" another person <a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/XboxSeriesX/comments/qzkinm/now_that_cheating_in_halo_is_confirmed_on_pc_can/" target="_blank">asked on Reddit</a> back in November after Halo Infinite's multiplayer launched. Xbox boss Phil Spencer who is on the record saying, "I'll never force somebody in our games whose playing with a controller or a mouse and keyboard to play against somebody with a different control scheme," in a <a href="https://www.gamespot.com/articles/xbox-head-talks-gaming-across-xbox-one-and-pc/1100-6436153/" target="_blank">2016 interview with Gamespot.</a> Spencer has been catching some serious flack on social media for those comments. It&#39;ll be a tough decision to allow Xbox gamers to disable crossplay. Those servers will become drier than a nuns vag overnight. Can&#39;t wait to see how yall handle this one chief <a href="https://twitter.com/XboxP3?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">@XboxP3</a> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/13.1.0/72x72/1f914.png" title="" /></div> Remember, PC iz Xbox and Xbox iz PC.<div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/13.1.0/72x72/1f602.png" title="" /></div> <a href="https://t.co/ibi763NKzS" target="_blank">pic.twitter.com/ibi763NKzS</a> &mdash; Banterbox (@BoxDone) <a href="https://twitter.com/BoxDone/status/1481051559404449794?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">January 11, 2022</a> Warzone players have been complaining about crossplay for more than a year, showcasing how annoying it is playing PC gamers in YouTube videos and expressing their grievances in multiple forums. A significant portion of the complaints is the influx of PC cheaters, who Activision <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1081065/call-of-duty-ricochet-anti-cheat-software-now-live/" target="_blank">has been banning at a substantial clip</a> since launching its anti-cheat software, Ricochet. PlayStation owners don't suffer from this issue because the console gives its players the option to turn off the crossplay features. They have been rubbing it in the faces of poor Xbox gamers on Twitter. Sony was a right all along disabling cross play. Dealing with cheaters is a mess on Xbox right now. On Playstation you can disable cross play across all games. CrossPlay = TRASH. Cheating ruins online games. &mdash; Hugo Azevedo <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/13.1.0/72x72/1f1f5-1f1f9.png" title="" /></div> (@iHuGi) <a href="https://twitter.com/iHuGi/status/1480950108380348417?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">January 11, 2022</a> Now, it's not like Xbox can't disable the feature. Battlefield 2042 initially launched in November with forced crossplay for Xbox gamers while PlayStation owners had the ability to disable it. DICE would eventually bless Xbox features with the ability to opt-out of crossplay. Sea of Thieves, a game that both PC and Xbox gamers enjoy, later added the option to disable crossplay. We won't be shocked if Xbox decides to follow PlayStation's route when it comes to crossplay because there is enough noise being made about it on Twitter. Sometimes a little social media bullying does work. You can peep more reactions in the gallery below.

The Doggfather's latest business venture might see the Triple OG moving into the glizzy gang with a potential line of hot dogs. According to <a href="https://www.billboard.com/business/legal/snoop-dogg-trademark-hot-dogs-1235017107/" target="_blank">Billboard</a>, Snoop Dogg filed a trademark order for a brand known as "Snoop Doggs," keeping things on brand per usual. A look at the<a href="https://uspto.report/company/Broadus-Calvin" target="_blank"> U.S. Patent and Trademark Office report</a> for the 41 trademark applications that Uncle Snoop filed over the years shows that Snoop Doggs was the latest filing, happening in December 2021. There is also a "Snoop Dogg's" trademark from 2020. As of now, it isn't known what Snoop Doggs will materialize into but the speculation is heavy. At any rate, it's due to be a huge success like everything else Snoop Dogg graces with his likeness and presence. - Photo: Getty via: <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1102930/snoop-dogg-snoop-doggs-trademark/" target="_blank">https://hiphopwired.com/1102930/snoop-dogg-snoop-doggs-trademark/</a>234100News, business ventures, Newsletter, snoop dogg, D-O-Double-Glizzy: Snoop Dogg Planning Potential Snblogs/1-2022/234100-dodoubleglizzy-snoo-s.jpgReebok & Bape To Drop Some New Colorways Of Instapump Fury & Classic Club C 85https://hiphopwired.com/1102855/reebok-bape-to-drop-some-new-colorways-of-instapump-fury-classic-clufeatures/blogs/dablazefm-reebok-bape-drop-some-new-colorways-instapump-fury-cla/Posted by dablazefm0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dablazefm-reebok-bape-drop-some-new-colorways-instapump-fury-cla/#commentsWed, 12 Jan 2022 20:26 GMTSource: Reebok / Reebok Collaborating clothing brands are all the craze these days as hypebeasts and fashionado's go gaga over two hot brands dropping exclusive capsule collections and the latest collaborative drop will be coming courtesy of Reebok and A Bathing Ape. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://hiphopwired.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/43/2022/01/1642013845967.jpg?w=819&#038;strip=all&#038;quality=85" title="" /></div> Source: Reebok / Reebok A few weeks ago the <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1095139/bape-reebok-tease-collaboration/" target="_blank">two teased the upcoming collaboration</a> but now we got a look at what they have in store and it's going to be a problem. For their highly anticipated drop, Bape will be giving the colorful camouflage treatment to Reebok's Instapump Fury while keeping it casually clean with the Classic Club C 85. Giving their signature camo imprint on the Instapump Fury's, Bape decided to get extra colorful with the silhouette instead of going the traditional green camouflage colorway and giving each foot it's own distinctive color blocking. Meanwhile the Classic Club C 85 will be boasting a clean white look while sporting red and white stitching to make them pop and bears the BAPE logo on the tongue. Definitely a summer banger. The BAPE x Instapump Fury and Club C 85 are set to drop on January 15 at the tune of $200 and $150 respectively. Check out pics of the upcoming collaboration and let us know if you'll be picking up either of the pairs some this Saturday. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://hiphopwired.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/43/2022/01/16420138414357.jpg?w=819&#038;strip=all&#038;quality=85" title="" /></div> Source: Reebok / Reebok <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CYmnBg3LWJl/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CYmnBg3LWJl/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by HYPEBEAST (@hypebeast)</a> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="https://hiphopwired.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/43/2022/01/1642013817961.jpg?w=1024&#038;strip=all&#038;quality=85" title="" /></div> Source: Reebok / Reebok <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image4"><img id="bvimg4" src="https://hiphopwired.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/43/2022/01/16420138237881.jpg?w=1024&#038;strip=all&#038;quality=85" title="" /></div> Source: Reebok / Reebok <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image5"><img id="bvimg5" src="https://hiphopwired.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/43/2022/01/16420138354055.jpg?w=1024&#038;strip=all&#038;quality=85" title="" /></div> Source: Reebok / Reebok <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image6"><img id="bvimg6" src="https://hiphopwired.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/43/2022/01/16420138297136.jpg?w=1024&#038;strip=all&#038;quality=85" title="" /></div> Source: Reebok / Reebok via: <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1102855/reebok-bape-to-drop-some-new-colorways-of-instapump-fury-classic-club-c-85/" target="_blank">https://hiphopwired.com/1102855/reebok-bape-to-drop-some-new-colorways-of-instapump-fury-classic-club-c-85/</a>234094News, bape, Newsletter, sneakers, Reebok & Bape To Drop Some New Colorways Of Instapump Fury & Classblogs/1-2022/234094-reebok-bape-drop-so-s.jpgDr. Fauci Slams Rand Paul For False Claims Inspiring Threats Against Himhttps://hiphopwired.com/1102850/dr-fauci-slams-rand-paul-for-false-claims-inspiring-threats-against-features/blogs/dablazefm-dr-fauci-slams-rand-paul-false-claims-inspiring-threats/Posted by dablazefm0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dablazefm-dr-fauci-slams-rand-paul-false-claims-inspiring-threats/#commentsWed, 12 Jan 2022 20:12 GMTSource: Pool / Gettyfauic The top infectious disease specialist in the U.S., <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1025359/dr-fauci-responds-to-nicki-minajs-cousins-friends-swollen-testicles-claim/" target="_blank"><strong>Dr. Anthony Fauci</strong></a>, slammed Senator <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/558932/rand-paul-caught-universal-fade-shrubbery/" target="_blank"><strong>Rand Paul</strong></a> (R-KY) once again for making inflammatory statements about him during a Congressional hearing in Washington, D.C. During the Senate Health, Education, Pensions and Labor Committee <a href="https://www.rawstory.com/anthony-fauci-rand-paul-2656340585/" target="_blank">hearing</a> discussing the present COVID-19 variants held on Tuesday (January 10th), Republican Senator Rand Paul accused Dr. Fauci of using his government position to defame three conservative academic professionals who didn't share his viewpoints and opposed lockdowns in 2020. It was found that Fauci merely sent an email to colleagues containing a link to an article debunking "herd immunity" claims. "In usual fashion, Senator, you are distorting everything about me," Fauci said to Paul. "There you go again. You just do the same thing every hearing." Paul denied the accusations. Dr. Fauci, showing some signs of being highly frustrated, went on to describe the Senator's false claims as a distortion of reality and cited them as the fuel for <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/steve-bannon-banned-twitter/" target="_blank">threats made</a> against his life and the lives of his family members. "What happens when [Paul] gets out and accuses me of things that are completely untrue," Fauci stated, "is that all of a sudden that kindles the crazies out there, and I have ... threats upon my life, harassment of my family and my children with obscene phone calls because people are lying about me." The doctor then pointed out that Paul is profiting off of the slanderous claims he's making, noting that the Senator is using them as a fundraising strategy on his website where "Fire Dr.Fauci" is listed towards the top. "You can do $5, $10, $20, $100," he said. "So you are making a catastrophic epidemic for your political gain." Senator Paul dismissed Fauci's allegations, replying to him that it was "disappointing for you to suggest that people who dare to question you are responsible somehow for violent threats." via: <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1102850/dr-fauci-slams-rand-paul-for-false-claims-inspiring-threats-against-him/" target="_blank">https://hiphopwired.com/1102850/dr-fauci-slams-rand-paul-for-false-claims-inspiring-threats-against-him/</a>234080News, Politics, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Newsletter, Rand Paul, Dr. Fauci Slams Rand Paul For False Claimsblogs/1-2022/234080-dr-fauci-slams-rand-s.jpgHHW Gaming: TikTok Star Rory Teasley Allegedly Strangled To Death By Boyfriend Over A Game of 'Overwhttps://hiphopwired.com/1102887/tiktok-rory-teasley-killed-by-boyfriend-overwatch/features/blogs/dablazefm-hhw-gaming-tiktok-star-rory-teasley-allegedly-strangled-d/Posted by dablazefm0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dablazefm-hhw-gaming-tiktok-star-rory-teasley-allegedly-strangled-d/#commentsWed, 12 Jan 2022 19:42 GMTSource: Alex Pantling / Getty <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1091270/nintendo-amazon-2021-best-selling-video-games/" target="_blank">Video games</a> are supposed to be fun, but for TikTok star Rory Teasley, an innocent <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1014814/overwatch-league-in-person-playoffs-canceled/" target="_blank">Overwatch</a> match with his boyfriend turned deadly. Per the <a href="https://nypost.com/2022/01/12/tiktok-star-rory-teasley-dead-after-alleged-fight-over-video-game/" target="_blank">New York Post</a>, Teasley died after his boyfriend of 10 years allegedly strangled him during a fight over the video game Overwatch, Michigan's Oakland County Sheriff's Department report. Local news outlet <a href="https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/local/2022/01/10/pontiac-man-choked-boyfriend-of-10-years-to-death-during-argument-over-video-game-police-say/" target="_blank">Click on Detroit</a> reported Officers went to the Pontiac apartment Thursday night (Jan.5) responding to Docquen Jovo Watkins 911 call reporting he and Teasley had a physical altercation. Watkins (31), told the officers he and his boyfriend had gotten into a fight and that Teasley was "sleeping" on the couch. Authorities soon discovered Teasley was not sleeping, he was unconscious and no longer breathing. He was immediately rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead by medics. Per the New York Post: According to the report, Watkins had reportedly choked Teasley during a dispute over the 2016 shooting game "Overwatch."

"We see far too often across the country these days when people resort to violence over trivial and insignificant disagreements," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard told Click On Detroit. "There is never a reason where violence is acceptable over a disagreement. Those who do so will be held accountable." Authorities said Watkins and Teasley had been together for 10 years. Teasley was beloved on TikTok for his comedy sketches, following the news of his tragic death fans immediately reacted. "Rip really hurt the city off this one you will be missed such a beautiful soul," one heartbroken commenter wrote. Another said, "It's sad you didn't even get to make it to 30... we love u rory." Another fan wrote, "The whole city is hurt but best believe justice will be served!!!! We luv you baby rest in power." Such a tragic story, may Teasley rest in power peace. - Photo: Alex Pantling / Getty via: <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/1102887/tiktok-rory-teasley-killed-by-boyfriend-overwatch/" target="_blank">https://hiphopwired.com/1102887/tiktok-rory-teasley-killed-by-boyfriend-overwatch/</a>234081Gaming, Tech, domestic violence, HHW Gaming, Murder, Overwatch, video games, HHW Gaming: TikTok Starblogs/1-2022/234081-hhw-gaming-tiktok-s-s.jpgMarvel Got A Gang of Movies & Series Dropping in 2022https://hiphopwired.com/1102822/marvel-got-a-gang-of-movies-series-dropping-in-2022/features/blogs/dablazefm-marvel-got-gang-movies-series-dropping-2022/Posted by dablazefm0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dablazefm-marvel-got-gang-movies-series-dropping-2022/#commentsWed, 12 Jan 2022 18:57 GMTSource: Marvel / Disney+ After the COVID-19 pandemic gave millions of fanboys a break from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel has slowly but surely gotten back on track with it's Disney+ series and blockbuster films in 2021. Now it further plans on making up for lost time with a slew of new movies and Disney+ series in 2022 and we're as excited as can be. Planning on expanding their already successful cinematic universe by adding more superheroes such as She-Hulk and Moon Knight, Marvel has revealed this year's slate of series and movies and it's going to be a doozy. Having ended 2021 with the new classic known as Spider-Man: Far From Home, Marvel Studios will continue to expand on the multiverse aspect of their world in Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness while adding to their growing roster of superheroes with Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight and She-Hulk via Disney+. Then come November we'll finally learn who the new Black Panther will be when Black Panther: Wakanda Forever drops on November 11. While there's been speculation that Letitia Wright would take on the mantle of the protector of Wakanda, a new poster "leak" seems to insinuate that we'll be getting an entire new male Black Panther sometime in the future. <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CYcEi2cvs7T/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank"> View this post on Instagram </a> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CYcEi2cvs7T/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by marvel girls dc <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/13.1.0/72x72/1f49e.png" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/13.1.0/72x72/1f48b.png" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/13.1.0/72x72/1f984.png" title="" /></div> (@marvelgirlsdc)</a> Though we can only see the arm of a superhero on the right, it seems to be the costume of one Black Panther complete with the claws and black and purple colorway.

Taking to Instagram, the triple threat, along with A&amp;E and Lifetime unveiled a new three-minute trailer from episode one of the two-part docuseries, which is scheduled to begin airing on Jan. 28. Executive produced by Janet and her brother Randy Jackson, the four-hour film, which was shot over the course of the last five years, features interviews with a host of celebrities including Whoopi Goldberg, Mariah Carey, Regina King, Ciara, Janelle Mon e, Tyler Perry, Missy Elliott, Teyana Taylor, Samuel L. Jackson, and Paula Abdul - who've witnessed and been influenced by Janet's legendary career, weigh in on her life and accomplishments in the trailer. The latest trailer from the movie shows highlights from <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/twitter-reacts-to-bobby-brown-humpin-around-with-janet-jackson-more-in-pt-1-of-his-bet-miniseries/" target="_blank">Janet's life and career</a> - from her and her siblings' humble beginnings in Gary, Indiana, to her feelings on her late legendary brother,<a href="https://hiphopwired.com/821471/estate-of-michael-jackson-earn-win-over-hbo-in-leaving-neverland-battle/" target="_blank"> <strong>Michael Jackson</strong></a>, and the 2018 death of her father Joseph. The movie also tells the little-known story about what it was like for Janet to grow up with her famous Jackson 5 brothers, whose sometimes abusive childhood has arguably received more public attention than that of their equally famous sister. "There were times when I just didn't understand where I actually fit in," Janet says during the clip. "My father was very strict. He was in charge of my life, my career. My father said, 'You're going to sing.'" The trailer also features the singer sharing how<a href="https://hiphopwired.com/966673/wade-robson-lawsuit-michael-jackson/" target="_blank"> the allegations against her brother</a> affected her own career, sharing that she was treated "guilty by association." Janet Jackson also had a few choice words for critics over the way she was treated after her <a href="https://hiphopwired.com/763973/cbs-exec-les-moonves-attempted-to-destroy-janet-jacksons-career-allegedly/" target="_blank">2004 Super Bowl performance with Justin Timberlake</a>, during which her breast was briefly exposed due to a "wardrobe malfunction." "They build you up, and then once you get there, they're so quick to tear you down," she says in the trailer One scene in the new trailer suggests that Timberlake invited Jackson to perform with him again at the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show. Since she did not join him, it appears that the documentary will explain why.
