All week, social media has been buzzing about the two mystery features that were added onto Ariana Grande's highly-anticipated remix to her raunchy single "34+35". On Thursday, it was revealed that Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat were the two artists expected on the joint, and they've lit up Twitter in a frenzy now that the song has been officially released.
Off the bat, fans of the pop star and the two women in rap have been dissecting lyrics as they look for their next Instagram caption, and everyone came correct with their quotable punchlines, almost asserting that this goes off on socials and on the charts. Many are expecting a big jump for this song on the Billboard Hot 100 because of the new remix, and Doja Cat helped kick off the feature fun with a quick little reference that hip-hop fans will appreciate.
At the beginning of her verse, Doja Cat took a shot at one of modern rap's biggest villains, Tekashi 6ix9ine. Considering the song is about 69, the sexual position, the line makes sense. "I want that six-nine without Tekashi," she said, using 6ix9ine's former moniker Tekashi69 to create a memorable moment. The Brooklyn star has been reference plenty of times in pop culture events, songs, and more. Clearly, he made a lasting impression on the world.
Aside from getting name-dropped on the new "34+35" remix, 6ix9ine hasn't really been up to much at all, seemingly chilling in the comfort of his own home as more and more people forget about him by the day. Do you think he'll eventually stage another comeback?

UnoTheActivist doesn't get much mainstream attention, but he's one of the most consistent and exciting forces out of Atlanta. Bringing intergalactic and cloud-like energy on the production end, Uno always manages to slide on top of the most unconventional trap beats. Family friends with Playboi Carti, the two have been at odds over the last few years but, after the release of December's Whole Lotta Red, Uno extended an olive branch. Now, he's returning with new music of his own, dropping his latest 10-track album Unoverse.
We're all living in UnoTheActivist's world. The one-of-a-kind artist is officially back with his new project, calling on Mar90s and MDMA as his sole features. After releasing a handful of full-length projects last year, it looks like we can expect that same kind of output from Uno again this year. If you're here solely for WLR-adjacent sounds, check out the standouts "Die Of Old Age" and "Tears On The Southside".
What do you think of Unoverse?
1. The Vision
2. Taco Bell
3. Percocet Feelings (feat. Mar90s)
4. Die Of Old Age
5. Tears On The Southside (feat. MDMA)

Though Logic is technically retired, fans have remained cognizant of an integral truth -- in hip-hop, retirement is only temporary. If there's anything rappers love more than the hype surrounding a retirement run, it's declaring themselves to be back. To Logic's credit, he has been keeping a low profile since bowing out with No Pressure, though he's made sure to scratch his creative itch by getting back into his beat-making bag. Now, it would appear that Bobby Tarantino is looking to test the waters once more, announcing and unveiling the latest BobbyBoy signee Doctor Destruction.
Joseph Okpako/WireImage/Getty ImagesTaking a page out of the late MF DOOM's playbook, Doctor Destruction appears to prefer the incognito route, donning a mask that conceals his true identity. In fact, the rapper's mysterious nature has some speculating that Logic has actually created a new alter-ego, one that might allow him to slide back into the game without the fanfare. For the most part, however, Logic appears to be fully committing to the rollout, praising his new signee's imagination and teasing a debut mixtape release on January 22nd.
Explaining that he originally met Doctor D three years ago ("he claims to be from the year 2097"), Logic seemed particularly impressed by the rapper's dedication to preserving hip-hop's roots. "This kid is full of imagination. So strap on your space suit and get ready for his free debut album (not mixtape) releasing on Friday the 22nd on @DatPiff," tweets Bobby. "Go show him endless love and support. It’s a special project."
Despite sharing a brief clip of the two artists vibing together in the same room, that hasn't stopped the fans from believing that Doctor Destruction is Logic in disguise. In any case, we won't have to wait much longer to find out. Look for vocal modulation to be the dead giveaway when Destruction's debut mixtape drops on January 22nd.

At the beginning of the month, media outlets began reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were moving forward with their divorce. Since then, rumors of Ye's alleged new relationship with makeup influencer Jeffree Starr have been flooding the headlines leaving Kim "humiliated." Kimye's union was rumored to be in trouble as far back as July 2020, but People magazine is now reporting that it actually went south months before that.
An industry source told the magazine today that, "the love story between Kim and Kanye has been over for a long time, more than a year. They adored each other but have too many differences."

"Kim has become more independent and has lost patience with his antics, rants, the presidential campaign and tweets," the source continued, adding that "Kim is capable of moving her life forward without him. She is busy studying [to be a lawyer], running her business, promoting it, and raising their children. That is what she wants to do."
Another source told People that Kim intends to do everything in her power to make sure Kanye can maintain a good relationship with their four children. "She will do everything she can for the kids to have a great relationship with Kanye," that source explained. "She just doesn't want to be married to him."

Earlier in the week, a source claimed Kim was reportedly humiliated by the Jeffree Starr and Kanye West media coverage. "Kim is humiliated by everything with Jeffree and the divorce as a whole," said a source to The Sun. "She has a lot of friends and a lot of respect in the makeup world so she was embarrassed with all of those Jeffree rumors."

Well, this is a surprise. Last night, nobody was expecting any sort of activity from Houston rapper and commercial marketing darling Travis Scott, but he came through with a random gift for all of his fans, dropping a remix of "Goosebumps" over four years after the original release.
The new dance remix of "Goosebumps" is backed by Travis Scott and HVME, a young producer from Spain. It's unclear how these two linked up but, clearly, Travis was a big fan of the remix-- enough so that he decided to officially release it during the lead-up to Utopia.
Let us know what you think of it!
Most recently, Travis Scott has been teasing the arrival of his next studio album, rumored to be titled Utopia, which is currently expected to drop in March 2021 according to a few unofficial sources. Perhaps the rapper will be re-living some of his best work through remixes like this one in the coming weeks? Stay tuned.
Through the 2-8-1, yeah, I'm ridin', why they on me?
Why they on me? I'm flyin', sippin' low-key

Rising artist Flo Milli is said to be next in line when it comes to the conversation about women in the rap game, and she's ready for her seat at the table. The Alabama-raised rapper has been catching the attention of rap fans worldwide, especially after she made an appearance at last year's BET Hip Hop Awards where she dropped a few bars during one of the network's coveted cyphers.
The newly-21-year-old artist has returned with another single, "Roaring 20s," a track that boasts a production from Kenny Beats. If the sample sounds familiar, it's because Beats has switched up the popular show tune "If I Were A Rich Man" from the famed musical Fiddler on the Roof. Fans have already begun flooding Flo Milli's social media with praise, so check out "Roaring 20s" and let us know what you think.
Stupid sh*t, it's just a double standard
I made my own lane and I took advantage (Flo Milli shit)
You can't hate on p*ssy if it rule the planet (Yeah, yeah)
I just came in the game and I'm doin' damage (If I was a rich man)

Netflix is slated to premiere the film adaptation of White Tiger on January 22, so the streaming service has begun sharing music from the silver screen project. On Friday (January 14), Indian rapper DIVINE delivered his addition to the soundtrack, a single titled "jungle Mantra" that includes features from Vince Staples and Pusha T. The Mumbai rapper shares his stage with the acclaimed emcees as they trade verses over a vibrant production.
White Tiger is described as a "dark humor" style drama film that takes place in India. The movie follows a young man determined to rebel against a system that has pigeon-holed him into being a servant as he takes on a quest to reach new heights. We expect to hear more from this soundtrack in days to come, but in the meantime, stream "Jungle Mantra" and let us know what you think.
Slaves to the bag, just hatin' my blackness all 'cross the atlas
Fatal attraction, money like magnets
Yeah, I gotta have it, I'm a fanatic
Chasin' it, takin' it, playin' in traffic
Get it and stack it, you livin' average, not in my bracket
Hustling a habit, then put what I earn in my casket, ashes to ashes
