Waka Flocka's been teasing the arrival of Flockavelli for atleast five years at this point and we've yet to receive the project. Between announcing the project's completion in 2013 to the current state of his career, he's gone through a lot. His falling out with Gucci Mane (although they're now on good terms) had an impact on his career, he ventured into reality TV alongside Tammy Rivera, and at one point, he was pretty much just making EDM music. However, it looks like Waka is back in action and ready to release his new project in the new year. Today, he comes through with his "Birthday Freestyle."
It isn't Waka Flocka's birthday, but he is back with his "Birthday Freestyle." The rapper hops on some heavy, trap production while laying down some frightening bars. This marks Waka's second release of the month following "December 6th Freestyle." It's a hard-hitting anthem that hopefully indicates that Flockavelli 2 is coming soon.
Keep your eyes peeled for that.
I clothesline a shark
Beef to me is art
They callin' me the God of War
I'm Kano, rip your heart

Skinnyfromthe9 is slowly making his name known across the rap game. The rapper's built a strong buzz for himself over the past few months since releasing the PnB Rock-assisted single, "Jump Out That" and dropping project, It's A Evil World. The newfound recognition has found him rolling in the same circles as some of the biggest rappers in the game. Unfortunately, this seems to mean that he's also dealing with the same type of girls as other rappers including Trippie Redd's ex-girlfriend Ayleks which has seemed to cause a strain on Skinny's relationship with Youngboy Never Broke Again.
Skinnyfromnthe9 took to Instagram to claim that Youngboy Never Broke Again tried to press him over Ayleks as well as another woman named Mariah. He claims that Youngboy was denied after reaching out to both females while they were with him.
"Yo this n***a really mad because when I was talking to Mariah, this n***a hit her up, and she dubbed his shit. And then me and Mariah stopped talking, and I started talking to Ayleks and the same thing happened with her all over again," he said. "You soft as hell, my n***a. That's some hoe shit."
He added, "This man tried to press me over Ayleks, but ain't Trippie your mans though?"
Youngboy has yet to respond, but we'll keep you posted if he does.

At this point in the digital era, celebrities can expect to receive some criticism for doing...anything, really. Some forms of negativity still come as a slight surprise, especially when it comes to the public figures' children and the relationship they have with their famous parents. Brooklyn Doris Daily, the 6-month-old daughter of Kenya Moore, is currently at the center of one of these virtual situations. The proud mom shared a picture of herself kissing her darling baby. Comments, both positive and negative flooded her feed.
She captioned the post with love: "May God bless you and may all your heart’s desires come true. I never gave up, kept praying and believing in God’s plan for my life. Stay prayerful He has your back. ❤️ "
One of her naysayers was keyboard happy enough to type up the following: “Of course, she was going to share it today. Queen of shade. But seriously, Kenya doesn’t hold her underneath her armpits. She’s just a bundle of soft tissue and can become QUITE sore from all the manipulation of being constantly picked up and held/dangled in the air by her armpits. People, please stop kissing babies in the face. The amount of germs that we have on us is crazy.”
This criticism comes after Gabrielle Union's similar experience. People will, hopefully, let parents show affection to their children in peace from here.

The iconic "Black Infrared" Air Jordan 6 that Michael Jordan wore during his first NBA title run is reportedly returning to retailers in February of 2019 as part of Jordan Brand's annual All-Star game collection.
According to sneaker source @Pinoe77, the kicks will come in OG form, featuring the familiar black leather upper, infrared detailing, full-length Max Air unit in the sole, visible Air bubble in the heel and "Nike Air" logo on the heel. It is believed that the sneakers will drop on February 16 for the retail price of $200.
The beloved 6s have been retro'd multiple times in the past, including as part of the 2010 “Infrared Pack” and then again most recently in 2014, but they have not released in OG form since the 2000 retro. Both the 2010 and 2014 versions did not include the "Nike Air" branding.
Early images of the 2019 "Black Infrared" Air Jordan 6 have already leaked, so if you forgot what this timeless classic looks like you can get reacquainted with the kicks via the IG post embedded below.

The bromance of Ski Mask The Slump God and XXXTentacion was one of the new school's most iconic. Though the pair suffered a few ups and downs, they ultimately reconciled their differences, setting their sights on a forward trajectory. Sadly, everything changed when XXXTentacion was murdered in June of 2018. Naturally, the event proved traumatic for Ski, who continues to mourn his friend to this day.
Today, Ski took to Instagram to share a few unreleased photos of XXXTentacion, a treat for his expansive fanbase. Given the close nature of their friendship, many of the pictures have a candid feel to them, from day-in-the-life to action shots at concerts. It certainly puts their run into context, and given the momentum X was experiencing before his death, who knows what might have happened.
At least we can take some solace in the fact that Ski Mask is doing his best to do right by X's legacy. He recently opened up about an argument he and X had, which caused him to reevaluate his place in the game. The end result found a Slump God reinvigorated, which eventually culminated in Stokeley, his best body of work to date.
Check out the pictures below. Respect to the Slump God for sharing them.

Today, one of hip-hop's greats has reason to celebrate. DMX, who once dropped two number one albums in the same calendar year, has turned forty-eight. Be sure to honor the rapper's legacy by queuing up your favorite track, as every self-respecting hip-hop fan can likely rattle off a favorite X joint. From the haunting Dark Man X era to the Ruff Ryders collective, DMX' iconic voice has been at the center of many a banger, and his first three albums rival any three-album run the game has ever seen.
Sadly, DMX will be spending his 48th birthday in jail. The rapper is currently serving time for tax evasion, where he's nearing the end of a one-year bid. At this point, he'll be out in March, though forced to experience three years of supervised release. Though the later stages of his career have been rough, DMX remains a legend in the game, responsible for giving us three classic albums in It's Dark And Hell Is Hot, Flesh Of My Flesh, Blood Of My Blood, & And Then There Was X. Plus, the man starred in iconic films like Belly, Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds, and From The Cradle To The Grave, where he literally ran up a wall and did a flip, something few rappers can boast.
In short, DMX is a legend, and should be respected as such. Happy birthday X! Keep your head up, as the game awaits your return.
