6ix9ine Enjoys Street Tacos In Mexico


In a recent social media clip, 6ix9ine is seen chowing down on some local cuisine in Mexico. The video shows the rapper at a food stand, watching nearby as a worker makes his tacos and he eats a pepper. He's also recently shared some other, more unique, food choices with his fans. Last month, 6ix9ine scarfed down a tarantula in a video shared to social media, much to viewers' disgust. Another clip of 6ix9ine eating a handful of bugs got the attention of user, going viral in May. "Chasing grasshoppers with tequila is crazyyyym," one wrote, "ole bro lost a few brain cells in that bathroom beat down." The user was referring to a recent incident where 6ix9ine was jumped by three men in a gym bathroom.

6ix9ine also recently had a mural painted in Mexico in his honor. The mural was created in Mexico City, Tepito, a neighborhood known for crime. It's often referred to as Barrio Brava," which means "fierce neighborhood." He posed with fans and took photos in front of the mural last month.

His recent attack led to the arrests of three men. Charges against one man, Anthony Maldonado, were later dropped. "I walk out the house and literally they have six detectives outside," Maldonado explained. He further described, "Everybody with assault rifles, German Shepherds and stuff, walking me out like a killer." He then said, "They take me to the police station, and they don't even do a proper investigation. The didn't ask me who I was with, where I was at that night, none of that. They just said, 'You look like the guy and that's you.'" The man claims he was at Bible study when the attack occurred.

6ix9ine's bathroom attackers aren't the only ones to want to get their hands on the rapper. Last month, Lil Durk shared what he would like to do to the alleged snitch on DJ Akademiks' Off The Record podcast. He said, "I'm knocking all your teeth out your mouth that's all I think of in my head." Durk added, "I see you I'mma knock all your teeth out ya mouth. Ion want nobody dead. Why I want you dead? Give me a good reason why I want 6ix9ine dead?"

For once, let's not talk about Ja Morant's ongoing suspension from the NBA. Instead, let's talk about his love life. In 2017, Morant met KK Dixon while he was a freshman at Murray State. Announcing their relationship in 2018, the couple had a daughter in 2019. Kaari has since become a regular fixture at FedExForum after Murray was drafted in 2019. However, it remains to be seen if Murray will remain a regular fixture in Memphis. Everyone is expecting a heavy suspension to be handed down to Morant after he flashed a gun on Instagram Live last month.

However, Morant and Dixon amicably split in early 2023. Despite this, they appear to be co-parenting Kaari. Instead, Morant has been linked with influencer Brooklyn Nikole since March 2023. The pair were spotted in late 2022 and people took posts from Nikole in March to indicate that they were dating. Aside from her 400,000 Instagram followers, Nikole is also the older sister of Latto.

    Kai Cenat Backtracks On Brooklyn Nikole

    A post shared by DJ Akademiks (@akademiks)

    In a recent stream, Kai Cenat pulled up Nikole's Instagram. As Cenat looked respectfully, his Twitch chat began to grow frantic. After Cenat finally noticed, he began to yell "Ja? Ja Who?" as chat tried to warn him that Nikole was linked to Morant. After finally spotting Morant, along with claims that Morant would shoot up him for sliding Nikole, Cenat completely backtracked. Previously, the streamer has gotten flirty with GloRilla and gotten a little risque with Nicki Minaj. Earlier this year, Cenat became the most subbed streamer on Twitch.

    However, it appears that Centa's chat is working with some outdated information. As recently as May 20, it was alleged that Morant and Nikole have split up as a result of Morant's latest controversies. Little was known about their relationship but Nikole appeared to call it quits with an Instagram post with the caption "that's a wrap". Regardless, it remains a very funny moment for the vastly-popular streamer. Follow all the latest sports news and viral moments here on HotNewHipHop.

    Blueface throwing shade at Chrisean Rock on social media isn't exactly anything new, though the 26-year-old has been particularly nasty to his future baby mama as of late. He's been near-constantly subtweeting her with messages about wishing his Crazy In Love co-star had gone through with another abortion, as well as taunting his first co-parent, Jaidyn Alexis in her face. The two have a tumultuous history. It certainly hasn't gotten any less messy in wake of Rock's pregnancy.

    While a video of her making plans with another man has been making rounds on social media, the Baltimore-born baddie has mostly taken the high road and avoided drama. Instead, she's been focusing on her career and bringing in money to support her little one, as well as spending time with close friends who she can count on in her time of need. Among them is Blac Chyna, who organized a beautiful maternity photo shoot for Chrisean, as well as GloRilla, who tapped her friend to join her on stage for her latest performance.

    Prior to their concert, a video of a very pregnant Rock happily rehearsing alongside the Memphis native appeared online. At the time, it was unclear what they were working on. However, we now know it was the choreography for the concert, where the "Lit" rapper's baby bump certainly didn't hold her back from twerking up a storm. After the group finished dancing, Chrisean was overwhelmed with emotion while the crowd cheered her on. In the time since some fans are speculating that she has far more potential as a star than her baby daddy.

    "I hope she wakes up and realizes that she's the star and not him," one IG user wrote in @theshaderoom's comments. "She doesn't need him to be her." Who do you think has more star power, Chrisean Rock or Blueface? Let us know in the comments, and check back later for more hip-hop/pop culture news updates.

    Aaron Gordon Gifts Jamal Murray Diamond Pendant

    According to TMZ, Gordon gifted Murray a diamond pendant ahead of the NBA Finals, which began on June 1. The pendant is shaped like a bow and arrow, a nod to Murray's sharp shooting and signature archer celebration. Furthermore, the pendant included Murray's initials and his jersey number, 27. Gordon had it done at Mile High Jewelers in Denver, with an expedited turnaround so it would be ready for the Finals. However, even with an expedited turnaround, the piece still took ten days to make. The pendant includes ten carats of white and blue WS diamonds.

    Deyjah Harris has shared her thoughts on Chika's recent rant about children on a plane. Chika took to Twitter last week to go off on a mother whose two kids sat near the rapper on a flight. She complained that the children's behavior disturbed her rest, and received a great deal of backlash for her comments. Zonnique Pullins later responded to the Tweets, revealing that the children in question were hers. Harris shared her thoughts about the recent incident, claiming that Chika handled the situation poorly.

    "The lady next to me who thought it would be a good idea to buy yourself and your twin infants first class seats on a red eye flight, who just woke me up by bringing your screaming bastard to OUR seats to soothe her, i just bought $34 wifi at 4 am to call you a stupid B**ch," Chika wrote. She continued, telling Zonnique she hates her, calling her a "senseless wench," and asking her if she's "mentally delayed." "You should [have] just sat there and been mad babe..she sky priority af," Zonnique wrote in response.

    Following backlash, Chika initially apologized for her behavior on Twitter. She did, however, later share Instagram stories where she said, "I know it was real harsh but sorry, I cant give a f**k." She continued, claiming that at the time of her posts she hadn't slept in two days, and was having "really bad thoughts." Chika later discussed "double-standards." She claims, "We all go through it we all say things," adding, "I don't feel bad cuz the response is disproportionate to the mistake."

    "As someone who deals with depression, anxiety, self harm, attempts or ideation myself.. i understand being on the verge of a panic attack or feeling the need to release your anger, but this was NOT the way to go about it," Harris wrote. She went on to tell Chika, "there are so many more healthier ways to release your emotions." She then claimed that Chika's rant "shows that [she is] not emotionally mature/intelligent," adding that "it feels like there is no accountability being taken on [her] end." Harris finished her post, "You have plenty of options so you must be honest with YOURSELF + keep it real as to why you brought this to social media."

    LaMelo Ball Ruins A Perfectly Good Watch


    LaMelo Ball played just 36 games in the 2022/23 season. After suffering a number of ankle and shoulder injuries through the first months of the season, Ball was sidelined by an ankle fracture in February. It was part of a massive drop-off for the Hornets, who went from winning 43 games in 2021/22 to just 25 in 2022/23. In his 36 games, Ball averaged 23.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 8.4 assists. However, the Hornets still went 13-23 during his 36 games.

    Ball's name is now becoming commonplace among trade rumors as, despite his injury history, the #3 pick in the 2020 Draft could still find a bright future in the NBA. Meanwhile, the Hornets could probably still net a decent package for Ball if they wanted to completely tank. However, Ball was gone viral for another reason in recent days.

    LaMelo "Flexes" Terrible Watch

    A post shared by Drip by RapTV (@drip)

    LaMelo turned a perfect good Cartier watch into a monstrosity. The watch is completely encrusted and looks a little like a sea mine, with a lot of random spikes and nodes. It's ugly, impractical, and the only purpose it really serves is as a cry for help from a financial advisor. "LaMelo is a jewelers' dream: Bad taste and deep pockets," one Twitter user commented. No word on who customized the watch, but there's every chance that they don't want their name on this one.

    Elsewhere, the watch has drawn comparisons to a number of pop culture icons. There are a lot of people calling it a "Bowser" watch, referencing Mario's arch-enemy. Elsewhere, social media personality Ladidai noted it the piece should have been "King Triton's watch in The Little Mermaid". It does have that barnacled look that we all know is very much in vogue right now. It's unknown how much Ball's watch cost. However, we can safely safe that any amount is too much for that abstract sculpture of a timepiece. What do you think about Ball's watch?

    Gunman Storms NYC Restaurant, 1 Injured


    Gunman Storms NYC Restaurant, 1 Injured

    Yesterday afternoon, a gunman entered a Queens restaurant and opened fire, leaving several guests running for cover. Footage obtained by the Long Island City restaurant's security camera shows the gunman storming into the Boishakhi Restaurant wearing a red hoodie. As he wields his gun, various patrons, including a couple with a young child, are also seen running down a nearby staircase to safety.

    One man was shot in the buttocks, and later taken to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition. Though the motive of the gunman is currently unclear, he seemed to chase his victim in the footage. "My body is shaking," a restaurant worker claimed following the attack. "I [heard] the sounds, but didn't know if it was a shot or something," he added, revealing that he was in the back of the restaurant at the time of the shooting. The gunman and the victim reportedly knew each other, and the victim was his target.

    The restaurant's owner, Abu Taher, spoke on the incident. "At first gunshot he did that side. We had a lot of customers inside," the owner explained. He continued, "Once he move around, then he come here and shot and went behind my counter and did the third shot to one of my employees." Taher says the gunman "didn't say anything. He just come and shot and ran away." He went on to say that he's "Definitely scared, you know. It's a very small business." Taher continued, "I'm really scared to run a small business in New York City. It's not safe, actually. We are not safe. Our life is not safe."

    "The guy didn't even know he got shot until we saw him bleeding and then from there helped him I just helped him and I called 911," Nelson Burgos, who was working nearby explained about the victim. He continued, "He seemed calm. I kept him calm and I just told him wait for ambulance, it will be alright. He wasn't bleeding too crazy, so I think he'll be alright." Police are currently still searching for the gunman.

    Last week, Baby Keem and Kendrick Lamar dropped "The Hillbillies". A surprise release from both of them, the song included a sample of Bon Iver's "PDLIF" and an interpolation of Drake's "Sticky". It was the first collaboration between the two cousins in almost two years. Many people were excited for the new song. "it's a great summer song. got a good bounce to it and kendrick and keem both have dynamic performances with their lyrics and their voice. also the hook by keem is hard asf," a fan wrote on Twitter. However, not everyone was thrilled about the song. "its cool but if this is the single for a collab album then im worried," one person wrote on Twitter.

    Also notable was the music video. Filmed on a VHS camcorder, the video featured retro visuals as well as outtake footage from Lamar's Big Steppers Tour. Notably featured in the video was an airport worker at Dublin Airport. Dublin Airport is a common hub and layover between Europe and North America. Furthermore, RapTV tracked down the now-viral airport worker.

    "So he literally came up to us while we were just waiting at reception," the man said in a recent video. "Literally came through the door, full of life. He was running around reception, throwing his arms around everyone. I knew his fella was recording but there was nothing said about a music video or anything. Oh it was crazy like, can hardly believe it. I was getting sent messages from everyone, even people I haven't spoken to in years."

    It's high praise for the two rappers and some much-needed good press for Lamar. Lamar was thoroughly roasted for his subpar freestyle on Beyoncé's "America Has A Problem". Aside from the underwhelming performance, many fans felt that Doechii deserved the remix instead. What did you think of "The Hillbillies"? Let us know in the comments.

    21 Savage And His Kids Rock Out In The Car


    21 Savage was recently joined by his children for a performance in his car. They serenaded social media in a clip shared yesterday, which got a lot of love from fans. In the video, the family shared their renditions of songs by Toosii, Tems, and more. They also sang along to their father's song with The Weeknd, "Creepin'." Though it's likely fans won't get a chance to see 21 Savage's kids perform live any time soon, they can catch the rapper on his current tour with Drake this summer.

    "This just made my heart smile," one social media commented in response to the sweet clip. Another called it, "too cute." The rapper and his children also performed a version of Lil Durk's "All My Life," featuring J. Cole, which he recently shared his thoughts on. He gave J. Cole credit for his contribution to the song, writing, "Cole just went so crazy on that verse wtf," in May.

    21 Savage also recently made a surprise appearance at the Dreamville Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina. Drake brought him out onstage at the event, co-headlined by J. Cole. He performed "Knife Talk" and "Rich Flex," and later shared behind-the-scenes photos from the fest of him with two of his children. "Dreamville was different," he said in his post.

    Drake and 21 Savage announced their It's All A Blur tour in March, which features over 50 stops across the U.S. Drake revealed plans for the tour during a Twitch livestream, where he said, "Ah, man, I can't wait to see the people." He continued, explaining, "It's like one thing to make the music but to see it is the most gratifying feeling. It's different when you're performing, you look out in the crowd, someone locks eyes with you and you can just tell it's a moment." At the end of last year, 21 Savage and Drake shared their collaborative LP, Her Loss, with fans.

    Celebrities undergoing cosmetic procedures to enhance their appearance isn't uncommon. Still, rarely do the results turn out as disastrous as Jacky Oh's "mommy makeover" last week. As we previously reported, the TV star was declared dead on Wednesday (May 31) following a procedure. At the time, few details were known about the circumstances surrounding her death. Now, however, Local 10 has come through with an update on the tragic situation.

    According to a Miami police report, authorities were contacted just before 10 PM. Local fire rescue teams responded to the Homewood Suites by Hilton Miami Downtown/Brickell Hotel at 1750 SW First Ave. They received a call about an unresponsive woman and promptly transported Jacky to Mercy Hospital in Coconut Grove. Medical professionals made various attempts to resuscitate the 32-year-old, but they ultimately failed. Officers are currently looking further into the mother of three's unexpected death along with the medical examiner.

    Jacky Oh's Death Under Investigation by Miami Police

    Things are presently in the preliminary stages, and information about where or when Jacky underwent her surgery is being kept under wraps. As friends and family await more answers, heartfelt tributes to the blonde beauty continue to surface on social media. Boosie Badazz shed a tear after hearing the news, and Moneybagg Yo publicly showed love to Jacky's partner, DC Young Fly on Instagram. Seeing as he lost one of his own co-parents just a few months ago, the Memphis native knows the pain all too well.

    The Wild N Out starlet welcomed three children with the comedian - daughters Nove and Nala, as well as their son Prince. The latter was born just last year, and after giving birth on three occasions, Jacky was clearly excited to see how her body would transform with her operation. In the time since many fans have expressed sadness over seeing someone as stunning as Oh not recognizing her own natural beauty and ultimately losing her life as a result. Our thoughts are with DC Young Fly and his children at this time. Make sure to check back later for any updates on the investigation into Jacky Oh's death. RIP.
