After a handful of impressive singles, Pro Era member, Powers Pleasant, has finally dropped his new project, Life is Beautiful. The album kicks off with a pep talk from none other than Sway Calloway from the legendary Sway in the Morning radio show. Afterward, a myriad of impressive rappers poke their heads out on the project. Life is Beautiful features the likes of Denzel Curry, IDK, A$AP Ferg, Jay Critch, ZillaKami, and more as well as fellow Pro Era members Joey Bada$$ and Kirk Knight. Totaling only twenty-three minutes, the project and short and sweet and wastes little time on needless filler songs. One highlight is “Please Forgive." The track might be the hardest on the album. Denzel Curry and City Morgue's ZillaKami come through with characteristically impressive verses, and IDK destroys the hook.
Powers Pleasant has had himself a busy year. He’s still fresh off the release of the latest Beast Coast record, Escape From New York, which landed him several production credits. Check out his newest venture below.

As the month of August winds down, another helping of binge-worthy Netflix content approaches. The month of September looks to be a streaming friendly one with an ample number of shows and movies scheduled to hit your computer screens, TVs, tablets, and phones.

BROCKHAMPTON released their fifth studio album GINGER on Friday, and fans have been soaking in the Los Angeles-based hip hop collective's vibe ever since. They'd previously shared their singles "BOY BYE," "I BEEN BORN AGAIN," "NO HALO," and "IF YOU PRAY RIGHT," but the second track on the album, "SUGAR," is a noteworthy addition.
Ryan Beatty is responsible for the melodic chorus as the lyricists stick to the theme of GINGER and deliver rhymes that are emotional and oftentimes introspective. "Some stuff I feel like you just can’t control," Kevin Abstract told Rolling Stone. "I don’t know what makes a song connect anymore, and I don’t think people really know. Our album is very summery right now. Even though it’s maybe rooted in sadness, the goal is to make it feel right and to uplift and to help people get through."
And she gave me all I need for the night, 40 suffice
Morally alright but I need some advice
And I know that I'm acting foolish
Could you pick me up around noon-ish?
Half a blunt, yeah, we coolin'
Twist it up, putting on OutKast
I'm the taxi, and yeah, we cruisin'

Someone else besides Johnny Depp's ex-wife Amber Heard is looking to take the acclaimed actor to court. Back in 2018, Depp starred in the film City of Lies alongside Forest Whitaker. In the film, Depp portrayed real-life Los Angeles Police Department detective Russell Poole who investigated the murders of Tupac Shakur and Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace.
One month before the film was to hit theaters, it was pulled and shelved. While there hasn't been any further announcement regarding a worldwide release date (although it has been leaked), it hasn't kept the movie from making headlines. Earlier this year, a crew member from the film named Gregg “Rocky” Brooks filed a lawsuit against Depp claiming that the actor punched him twice in the ribs when Brooks attempted to impose the restrictions of certain permits.
According to The Blast, new documents state that Brooks is asking for $70K from Depp, but Depp isn't having it. The actor reportedly counters that the assault never even happened and Brooks didn't ask for medical expenses. Brooks is seeking damages for lost wages which is how he came up with his number.
Depp also wants the case to be moved to a lower court, something Brooks is adamantly against because the most the alleged victim would be able to take home would be $25K.

It was almost a year ago when the Reading & Leeds Festival announced their 2019 line up. The two-day event planned to host artist like Post Malone, Billie Eilish, Stefflon Don, Foo Fighters, DaBaby, Yungblud, and Chicago's very own Juice WRLD. United Kingdom fans couldn't wait to purchase their tickets and see their favorite artists take to the stages, however, the hoards of people waiting on Juice WRLD were left with disappointment.
According to NME, the 20-year-old artist was all set to begin his performance at 4:10 p.m. There was a DJ hyping up the massive crowd that was gathering together awaiting Juice WRLD to take to the stage, however, just five minutes later host Huw Stephens instead grabbed the mic and delivered a message. "We have an important announcement to make and we’re afraid it’s bad news," he said. "Juice WRLD will not be able to perform today due to a flight issue."
Before leaving the area, fans reportedly let their frustrations be known by booing the stage and storming social media with criticisms. Fans also shared that Lil Uzi Vert was supposed to perform as well, but he, also, backed out at the last minute. However, his name isn't listed on the festival's website.

Fantasia's career has been much like a roller coaster ride. The American Idol winner's career catapulted into the stratosphere as her debut studio album Free Yourself went platinum and its follow-up, Fantasia, went gold. Yet, over the years there were unfavorable headlines and dramatic moments that haunted her personal life, and it seemed as if her talents took a backseat to the tabloids.
However, Fantasia has pulled herself together, refocused, and is preparing for her next project titled Sketchbook. The first single from the album is "PTSD," a collaboration featuring T-Pain. "This was a much edgier song for me but one that I felt was needed on the Sketchbook album," Fantasia said in a press release. "Many people have experienced disappointment in the pursuit of love, but refuse to let one bad experience dictate their entire outlook on love and romance overall."
Fantasia has also announced that she's hitting the road once again, this time with R&B singers Tank, Robin Thicke, and The Bonfyre. The Sketchbook Tour will run from October 17 until Dec 6. Check out her latest effort and let us know what you think.
Had one job, couldn't do it, she fumbled
You was talkin' like you was gon' be something, ooh
I gave it to you but you messed it up
Wasn't good enough
One thing I won't do is be with anyone
'Cause I'm not for everyone

Tekashi 6ix9ine found himself on the wrong side of Rap-A-Lot's J Prince Jr. when the rainbow-haired rapper decided to pull up at a party. J Prince Jr. hosted a get-together in Houston for his birthday and 6ix9ine pulled up with his posse uninvited. The "GUMMO" rapper was stopped at the door and told that he wasn't welcome, reportedly because it was during a time when 6ix9ine was at odds with multiple people in the industry and on the streets and no one wanted to be caught in his crossfire.
J Prince Jr. shared a video of the moment when 6ix9ine was being escorted out of the area, but DJ Akademiks later reported that Tekashi's team called foul on claims that the rapper was kicked out. "Although I might not condone in a bunch of the moves you’ve made, I don’t know u and I know that your young and new to this so u have a lot of learning to do," J Prince Jr. wrote in the caption of his video clip. "So with that being said, I’m still willing to sit down and have a conversation with u but not for one second do u get it misunderstood that u can get away with the disrespect in my city the way you’ve shown in others. We won’t tolerate it. Make your next move your best move!"
It's been over a year since the hoopla went down, and J Prince Jr. addressed it with the press for the first time during an interview with No Jumper's Adam22. "I had to put a kid in his place," he said. "And as you see, once I addressed the situation, I said nothing more about it because I'm not no lip boxer. I'm not gon' go on social media and back and forth with you. Imma check your temperature. And, you know, respect can be shown in a bunch of different fashions. He showed me respect when he come to the Worldstar show. That was respect whether he want to say it or not or the world want to say it or not. It was respect. He [respected] the power. So, I seen he respected me and I never spoke up on it again."
