Jack Harlow has risen to become one of the most exciting young rappers in the game. The 2020 XXL Freshman has been having one hell of a year, popping off on the charts with his hit single "WHAT'S POPPIN" and following that up with his latest record "Tyler Herro".
As he has been having this monster breakout year, people have been wondering when Jack Harlow would finally come through with his debut studio album. The Kentucky rapper's Sweet Action tape has been in heavy rotation but fans have been begging him for even more music, and Jack is happy to oblige.
Closing out the year with a big bang, Jack Harlow has just announced that he will be releasing his debut studio album in about a week's time.
"Thats What They All Say • MY DEBUT ALBUM • OUT DECEMBER 11th," wrote the budding star on social media. The album is already available for pre-order, containing fifteen songs and including "Tyler Herro" and "WHAT'S POPPIN".
Jack also shared the cover artwork, which shows him in the back of a limo signing autographs for a group of children lined up at his window. He has his legs up and he's seated right next to his girl, who lays beside him.

Amid the 2020 US presidential election in early November, Cardi B shared a video of herself on Instagram puffing on three cigarettes at the same time, ranting about politics and venting about how anxious she was to see the results. In an interview paired with her recent "Woman of the Year" cover, issued by Billboard, Cardi went into more detail over her controversial post, revealing that while she doesn't do drugs, she does smoke the occasional cigarette (or three).
"I was having fun with my kid, but then I kept looking on Instagram and was getting jittery. [Before the election], I just felt like Biden had this in the bag," she told Billboard. "Then Election Day came, and I’m seeing so many states are just red, period."
"It just surprises you when you don’t hear people around you saying, ‘Oh, I don’t support Trump.’ There’s other people that don’t really think like us. Millions of people who are not on the same page as you and don’t understand what he did wrong and why we’re so anxious. I’m like, ‘Oh, shit. I’m getting nervous now," she continued. "If I didn’t voice my feelings, I would probably be one crazy b*tch on drugs."
"I don’t do drugs; I smoke a little cigarette here and there, drink a little wine and Hennessy in the club, but those drugs I don’t do," she clarified, adding that she knows she has to watch what she says on social media to avoid backlash. "Let’s say something is ugly, right? Everybody in the comments is saying it’s ugly, but you’re saying it’s pretty. If you have the unpopular comment, then you’re in the wrong. So you gotta be careful with what comes out of your mouth. You can’t even call people ugly nowadays! I’m not saying I want to call people ugly — you just can’t even be yourself anymore."

During a recent virtual appearance on Stir Crazy with Josh Horowitz, "One Night" singer, Tyrese Gibson, opened up about his previously ongoing feud with Jumanji star, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, revealing that the two have finally made peace.
The tension between the two Fast & Furious stars began when Gibson caught wind that The Rock would be receiving a spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw. He sarcastically congratulated his former cast-mate, throwing major shade on Instagram. "Congratulations to The Rock and your brother in law aka 7 Bucks producing partner for making The Fast and the Furious franchise about YOU," he wrote.
"And like you, DJ even if they call I will not be deleting this post – Gn folks see you in 2020 April #FastFamily right? Nah… it’s about #TeamDewayne. 3 yrs will it be worth the wait? #NoShaw just Hobbs will this be another #BayWatch?," he added. Predictably, after that tweet, his and The Rock's friendship went down the tubes.
Ultimately able to hash it out, Gibson revealed in his latest interview with Josh Horowitz. "Me and ‘The Rock’ peaced up, by the way," he said. While he didn't give away too many details of their conversation, he did say that the two spent quite some time talking things out. "We talked for like four hours about three weeks ago. It was great."

LeBron James is officially locked down for the next two seasons, signing an insanely wealthy new contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The King is back, announcing his new deal today, which was reported by The Athletic's Shams Charania. The new contract runs for two years and is worth $85 million, which is the maximum the team could offer. The news comes via LeBron's agent Rich Paul, who specified that the deal runs through the 2022-23 season. Interestingly enough, the extension runs until the time his son, Bronny James, would be eligible for the NBA Draft. Could they be planning to team up at that time?
This is obviously huge news for fans of the Lakers organization, who brought a championship back to Los Angeles last season for the first time in a long time. The franchise is back to its winning ways, which are likely to continue with James' addition.
Anthony Davis remains a free agent, despite all signs pointing to him returning to the Lakers. We will keep you posted on his situation as more news is expected to be announced this week.
Brian Rothmuller/Icon Sportswire via Getty ImagesThis is just the latest move for the Lakers, who have been active this offseason. The team has added Dennis Schroeder, Montrezl Harrell, Wesley Matthews, and more key players, which will all be great additions to the squad.

All eyes were on Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. this past weekend after the two retired fighters got in the ring for an exhibition match, which was filled with high-profile performances from French Montana, Wiz Khalifa, and more. Snoop Dogg ended up winning the night with his outstanding commentary, but another big winner was Jake Paul, who knocked out Nate Robinson in convincing order.
The YouTuber has been trending all week because of his win against Nate, but Fat Joe doesn't think that people on social media are giving the retired NBA star the respect that he deserves.
David Crotty/Patrick McMullan via Getty ImagesPrior to his chat with Mya, Fat Joe took a minute to speak about Nate Robinson, also revealing that he was offered millions of dollars to fight 50 Cent, which he declined.
"I'm talking about my brother Nate Robinson. How many of you would have the heart to get in the ring at a Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight and fight one-on-one against another guy," asked Joe in a video. "And so, yeah, he caught the L. But it's so much heart of a lion to go in there and fight and I don't think people are giving him the respect they should. And then a lot of people on social media, meaning you, just like to talk shit. Basically, you wouldn't do the shit yourself."
He went on to state that not even he would get in the ring on such a grand stage.
Tibrina Hobson/Getty Images"I wouldn't do it. When I had beef with 50 Cent, people were, like, fake offering me $10 million, $5 million, to go fight 50 one-on-one. I'm not scared of 50. I'd fight him for free half the time! But to get knocked out on TV, it's tough and I don't think we're giving [Nate] his respect. He got knocked out, I get it. It was explosive, it was crazy. I get it. But you can't keep trying to kill our people that got the courage to entertain us."

It's been a busy year for Rich The Kid who recently announced that he owns all of his masters, a dream for any artist in 2020. In the past twelve months, the rapper returned with Rich Forever 4 followed by his latest solo album, BOSS MAN, and recently, he teamed up with NBA Youngboy for their collaborative effort, Nobody Safe. Though the project arrived just a few weeks ago, it feels like NBA Youngboy has had a lasting effect on Rich The Kid's creativity as seen on his latest release, "So Heartless." Diving deeper into the melody-driven flow, he glides over the guitar-tinged production professing his sorrows while throwing in a few flexes here and there.
Serving as the first single off of his forthcoming project, it seems like we'll be seeing a new side to Rich The Kid's style in the future.
You know they said you got one shot, I had to take it
You know this money come with envy when you make it
In the morning, I need lean for my breakfast just like bacon
Like bitch I'm fuckin' stressin', all this money that I'm makin'

Candace Owens has become a trending topic yet again with her often unbearable commentary. This time, it's because of one of her targets, Harry Styles, hitting back at her past comments, coming for her on Instagram.
You'll recall that, in mid-November, Candace Owens was under fire for comments she made about Harry Styles, who, at the time, had just starred in a new campaign with Vogue where he wears a dress.
"There is no society that can survive without strong men," wrote Owens on Twitter. "The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men."
Later on, Candace pump-faked as if she was about to apologize, hitting her followers with a "sorry, not sorry".
Harry Styles has been silent about Owens' take on his cover, but he's finally striking back at the right-wing conservative by using her own words.
"Bring back manly men," wrote Harry on Instagram, posting a picture of himself in a blouse, suggestively eating a banana. His response has his fans going crazy on social media, trending both the artist and his rival, with many people praising Harry for hitting back in this manner.
Candace has already responded. Check out her response below, as well as some reactions.

On this Tuesday's episode of Red Table Talk, Willow Smith, 20, revealed that she recently stepped into womanhood, wearing lingerie for the first time at Rihanna's Savage X Fenty show — and even earned her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith's stamp of approval.
Wearing lingerie marked a surprisingly profound step in Willow's life, but getting to wear it for the first time at a major fashion show was, according to her, even more monumental. "You really stepped into your womanhood this year and you showed the world your transformation during your Fenty strut," Jada began.
Willow admitted that initially, stepping backstage was nerve-racking, and she even questioned whether or not she was the right person for the job. "As soon as I got in there I was like 'Oh God, maybe I can’t handle this. Maybe this is not my place,'" she said.
She was eventually able to buck up and let herself feel empowered. "I put on the clothes and I looked at myself and I said, ‘You’re gonna go out there and you’re gonna vibe it out.'" She recalled showing off her outfit to her mom via Facetime, and her reaction was priceless. "'YES! Let them have it, Willow,'" Jada said at the time.
"I was very surprised because I had never worn lingerie in my entire life. My first time in front of the whole world ever wearing lingerie. I just felt so empowered. I felt I was stepping into the year of lingerie and the year of me becoming a woman," Willow added.

Florida rapper Yungeen Ace has been making a name for himself in the music industry. His authentic music and raw lyrics are emotional and can relate to the struggle that so many people face. Pulling over 500 million streams on his catalog, Ace is looking to become the next big force out of Florida's rap hub, watching his blessings rise.
And there have been lots of blessings. Over the years, we've seen Yungeen Ace turn from a relatively unknown rapper to a big star in the business. As his popularity has grown, so has his income. With that said, we needed to have him for a new episode of In My Bag, where he could freely flex all of the belongings that he keeps on his person when he's traveling.
For starters, Ace had to show off his drip, going one-by-one on all of his chains, rings, watches, and more jewelry. Once he got through the entire pack, he finally got to his daily necessities, like gum. Ace claims that he goes through three-to-four packs of gum per day, calling it his "bad habit" and stating that, because he doesn't smoke at all, he likes to chew gum to keep himself busy. Additionally, it seems like hygiene is definitely important for the rapper because, in his bag, he's always storing soap and his toothbrush for whenever he needs them.
Ace quickly re-focused on his style, showing off two pairs of kicks: some white Air Force 1 Lows and Dior lows. While the latter is more hyped, Ace claims that he always needs to keep white Force's on him, often buying out the store for every pair of size 9's he can find.
Watch the brand new episode of In My Bag with Yungeen Ace for more.

Burna Boy's been trending since last night and it's unfortunately not music-related. The African Giant artist is trending because, apparently, he's been creeping on his boo Stefflon Don with Nigerian businesswoman and model, Jo Pearl.
Ian West/PA Images via Getty ImagesJo Pearl shared two Instagram TV videos yesterday where she spilled the details on her relationship with Burna Boy. She said that they've been seeing each other for two years, even after the Nigerian star began dating UK star Stefflon Don. It all started with a DM, she said; one that she claims she was reluctant to respond to. Then, they met at Burna Boy's pop-up show in the UK.
"I feel like what he made me feel like when I met him made me feel like love at first sight. He just gravitated towards me, he was very sweet," she said. She said she ended up moving in with him in London.
She said she ended up finding out about his relationship with Stefflon Don after they got into an argument but that didn't even stop their relationship.
"It's just been like the elephant in the room that we choose not to discuss and we just go about things like it doesn't exist," she said. "In the past two years, he has never mentioned the person I see him with on social media to my face. That person never gets acknowledged, it's like she doesn't exist in our world."
Check the video below.
