  1. Ariana Grande took some time off after the Manchester Bombing in 2017, but she came back with a vengeance in 2018. In August, Grande dropped off her fourth studio album Sweetener. The project debuted at number one on Billboard 200, and spawned a handful of charting singles such as "God Is A Woman," "No Tears Left To Cry," and "The Light Is Coming." Just about six months later, Grande is gearing up to drop another album. Entitled Thank U, Next after her sensational single, Grande's fifth studio album will touch down on February 8. "Thank U, Next," "Imagine," and "7 Rings" are the leading singles for the project, to which Grande shared the tracklist for on Tuesday (January 22). The tracklist features some interesting titles, but the one that grabbed my attention and kept it was "Break Up With Your Girlfriends, I'm Bored." If Grande's DMs weren't overflowing before such a suggestive title, they will be now. "Bad Idea," "Fake Smile," and "Ghostin" are also intriguing titles that hint at some kind of storytelling element. Grande's relationships with Mac Miller and Pete Davidson are addressed on the title track of the album, but we're sure that she will dive deeper into her emotions throughout the project.

  2. Cardi B's rant towards Trump's decision to shut down the government garnered a lot of traction from both Republicans and Democrats alike. Following her lead, Offset also shared his thoughts on the ongoing government shutdown during a recent interview with Esquire. Theo Wargo/Getty Images Offset rarely gets political, but it's likely we'll get a rare glimpse into that side of him on his forthcoming project, according to his interview. The rapper is getting ready to release his solo album which was initially scheduled to drop in December. The ongoing government shutdown seems to have sparked some inspiration with Offset who thinks America as a whole is going through a rough patch. "We’re going through a fucked up time," he said. "Both sides. Black and the white. You know why? The government shutdown. Black people aren’t working, white folks aren’t working. It's everybody." Offset, who's traveled across the globe with the Migos, said the reality of America is much sadder than the perception of the country from overseas. Scott Legato/Getty Images “This ain't supposed to be going down. Not in America. We got our chest out, we got the money, we got the cars, we got the celebrities, we got the stars, everybody wants to be like us. All these other countries when I go there, they're inspired by us,” he said. “Seeing people talk about how they can't pay their bills but they have to work. That's some slave shit. I don't really get into it politics because I'm usually on the other side of it. There’s black mothers with jobs, and now you take their jobs away. And then the president, I don't really want to speak on him but he's rich. Make a n*gga respect you, because a n*gga don't respect you. He's rich and has these folks struggling." The government shutdown is on its 31st day as of today (Jan. 22nd). According to CNN, there's a very slim chance that the government will fully reopen at a quick pace. View the full article
  3. Tekashi 6ix9ine's pre-trial conference took place earlier today and it may have resulted in more complications in the rapper's legal battle. According to XXL, the presiding judge ruled in the opening portion that the rapper's lawyer might have to be taken off the case until they resolve whether Lance Lazzaro's involvement is a potential conflict of interest to the case. Bob Levey/Getty Images The judge's ruling came after it was revealed that Lazzaro previously represented two of 6ix9ine's co-defendants, Faheem "Crippy" Walter and Kifano "Shotti" Jordan before taking on 6ix9ine for this specific case. The judge expressed his disappointment in Lazzaro for failing to disclose the information, saying that Lazzaro's previous dealings with 6ix9ine's co-defendants could be a conflict of interest. Lazzaro explained he didn't think it would've been a big deal since he represented Shotti in several cases between 2009 to 2015. He further explained he represented Walter after his client was charged with gang assault in 2018. The judge said Lazzaro wasn't in any position to decide if the matter would be considered a conflict of interest. The judge said Lazzaro couldn't represent 6ix9ine until he sends detailed letters explaining his prior dealings with both co-defendants. If Lazzaro fails to submit these letters or if it's found there's a conflict of interest, Lazzaro could very well be relieved of counsel for 6ix9ine. 6ix9ine's other lawyer, Dawn Florio, will presumably continue to represent the rapper regardless of Lazzaro's fate. XXL also revealed that 6ix9ine didn't apply for bail, despite his lawyer's claims. The next pre-trial conference for 6ix9ine's racketeering case is set for Feb. 27th with the trial date set to start on September 4th. View the full article
  4. It's been a hot minute since we heard new music from A$AP TyY. Although he emerged as the mastermind producer behind A$AP Rocky's singles, "Pe$o" and "Purple Swag," he's flourished into an artist in his own right. Over the past few years, he's been putting his best foot forth as a solo artist, flexing both his production and rapping skills. Now, he comes through with a new single to kick off a new year. In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., A$AP TyY pays homage to the late civil rights leader with his new single, "Luther." The rapper's new single comes a few days after the Mob's annual Yams Day event. The rapper delivers a dreary and haunting track over ghostly production carried by strings and a haunting choir sample. TyY closes out the track with a snippet of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech. Quotable Lyrics Why every leader, they wanna assassinate? Why my character they wanna assassinate? Rocks and stones, we walk miles away That's why we pray everyday View the full article
  5. Eminem's life in Detroit is set to be the focal point of the upcoming virtual reality documentary, Marshall From Detroit. The VR doc is set to make its debut at the Sundance Film Festival this week. It isn't a typical documentary -- Felix & Paul Studios and director Caleb Slain explore Detroit from the point of view of the city's pride and joy, Eminem. The directors recently shared the trailer for Marshall In Detroit which explores the city during a nighttime cruise with the MC. The usage of VR in the new Eminem documentary helps give a more intimate look at the rapper's private life in his hometown. Caleb Slain explained the usage of VR helps bring a "mystic version of Detroit" that many won't have the chance the witness first-hand. “Our idea was to extend the blanket of intimacy offered by VR beyond the once-in-a-lifetime ride with Marshall and introduce you to a more mystic version of Detroit you could never see for yourself,” Slain told Variety. "We wanted to take the ‘reality’ out of VR and cook it down into something more unreal, but also truthful.” Bill Pugliano/Getty Images Felix & Paul Studios, the production company behind the documentary, have a history of using technology to offer a more interactive experience with their videos. “Our studio has a history of using technology to tell stories in new, more immersive ways, to create experiences that are at the convergence of the intimate and the extraordinary,” the company's co-founder Paul Raphael said. "Marshall From Detroit is a sparkling expression of that, inviting you on a surreal ride through Detroit with Eminem himself.” View the full article
  6. Suge J Knight has caused some buzz with his claims about Tupac Shakur. First, he denied the West Coast rapper's death. Then, he announced that Pac was not only alive and well, but he was actually in the process of making new music. The social media post earned quite a few sly comments, outrage, and side-eyeing. Despite the overwhelming response that mostly leaned toward disbelief, The New Deathrow saga continues. Junior recently announced that he is on the lookout for talent to produce the project he claims 2pac is crafting. He issues a callout on social media that read: "I need the hottest producer to work on a project for Pac." The caption reiterates this information without any contact information. One can assume that his DMs are open to talent. He also took some time to aim at those who accuse him of being on drugs, including DJ Akademiks. The media personality echoed the comments of many critics when he shared Knight's post with an unflattering caption. Junior responded by asking, "why the young black moguls gotta be on drugs?" He continued by drawing a parallel between himself and another controversial figure in Hip Hop. "First Soulja boy now it’s Suge." View the full article
  7. Gustavo Dudamel now has more to celebrate this year than his 10th anniversary as the music and artistic director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. On Tuesday morning, the world-renowned classical music conductor received the 2,654th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which will appropriately reside... View the full article
  8. Chris Brown is in the clear for the time being. According to CNN, The singer was released from police custody earlier today without any charges filed against him. Brown was detained along with two other people, who were reported to be his bodyguard and his friend, over accusations of aggravated rape and drug possession. A 24-year-old woman filed a police report last week, claiming the singer raped her before his two associates allegedly abused her. She also claims that the singer provided cocaine and weed to those who were at the after-party at the hotel. Although the singer was released without any charges, the Paris Prosecutors Office said the investigation is still pending. Brown addressed the allegations earlier today on Instagram, referring to the accuser as a "lyin ass b*tch." "I wanna make it perfectly clear ..... This is false and a whole lot of CAP!," he wrote on Instagram. "For my daughter and my family this is so disrespectful and is against my character and morals!!!!" The singer received support from Joyner Lucas, T.I. and Boosie Badazz who pointed out the allegations surfaced after Chris Brown landed a historical deal with RCA records, becoming the youngest artist to own any of his masters. While T.I. simply pointed out the coincidence, Boosie took it a step further to call the accuser a liar and claiming that he wishes that she gets raped for making a false accusation.

  9. The Carmelo Anthony experiment in Houston officially came to an end today, as the Houston Rockets traded the 10-time All Star (as well as draft rights to Jon Diebler and $1.56 million) to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for draft rights to Tadija Dragicevoc. Anthony is expected to be waived by Chicago, but ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Bulls could wait until the February 7 trade deadline to do so. As the situation continues to unfold, Melo's former teammate, James Harden, says he just wants to see him happy and hooping again. (Photo by Cameron Spencer/Getty Images) "I just want to see him hoop, see him happy, and I mean, he deserves it, honestly," Harden told reporters of Anthony's situation on Tuesday. "Like, he's put so much time and effort into this game that he should be able to hoop and still have fun playing the game of basketball." "Yeah, man. Melo is one of the best to ever hoop. He loves the game of basketball," Harden said. "Some guys just do it just because they're gifted or they're athletic or they can shoot the basketball. There's not that many players that like, love to hoop. ... It kind of sucks that it didn't work out. It is what it is. I just hope he finds somewhere where they can embrace him and he can still hoop. So he [gets to] make that decision that he's done [playing]." Anthony appeared in just 10 games for the Rockets this season, averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds on 40.5% shooting along the way. Once he finally becomes a free agent, it is believed that the Los Angeles Lakers will be among the teams interested in signing him. View the full article

  11. Cardi B has a knack for offering some of the most memorable soundbites. Her latest was conjured during an interaction she had with the equally vocal Tomi Lahren. When the conservative reporter mocked the rapper for speaking on political issues, Cardi snapped in response: "Leave me alone I will dog walk you." A brave Lahren posted up and wrote, "Come dog walk me. I dare you." Social media users were glad to oblige. Some of them wielded photoshop and creativity to illustrate how that might go down. The usual reaction memes were also included in the party along with some cosplaying. Peep some of the reactions below. Rich Polk/Getty Images for Politicon Tomi has since called out the apparent hypocrisy displayed by her left-leaning critics. "Libs applaud @Gillette for taking on violence, sexual misconduct & bullying. They then applaud @StormyDaniels for saying she wants “fist me,” @iamcardib for threatening to dog walk me, and now enjoy depictions of me being walked like a dog. You’re hypocrites and you’re sick." Cardi B has also expressed similar sentiments prompted by recent interactions with political figures. View the full article
  12. Chris Brown was taken into police custody after a woman alleged the singer raped her. The singer has maintained his innocence, recently taking to Instagram to address the allegations. However, many have been quite skeptical of the validity of the accusations. Boosie Badazz is among those who are in disbelief that Chris Brown was accused of such a heinous crime. In fact, the Louisiana legend said that he hopes Breezy's accuser actually gets sexually assaulted for lying. Boosie Badazz isn't fond of the #MeToo movement. In fact, he's defended R. Kelly in recent times. However, he recently went into a tirade on Instagram after Chris Brown was accused of raping a woman in Paris. The rapper shared a screenshot of an article with the headline, "Chris Brown Signs New Deal & Becomes Youngest Artist To Own His Master Recordings." Boosie suggested that this is either a conspiracy or a money grab from the accuser. "FIRST THIS MAJOR MOVE Now he raped somebody. MY NIGGA BE ON DA JET WITH 7-10 BADDIES FRFR RAAAAAAAAAPPPPEEEE. GTFO. They coming for us all WHOS NEXT [?] BITCH U LYING I HOPE U GET RAPED FR NOW BY A GANG GANG U MONEY HUNGRY ASS HOE," Boosie wrote. "SOMEBODY GOTTA START BEATING THESE HOES ASS. WHERE THE HOOD BITCHES AT" Chris Brown denied that allegations earlier today on Instagram, also accusing the alleged victim of lying. View the full article
  13. It is well documented that the Los Angeles Lakers have been battling a plethora of injuries as of late. Lonzo Ball just went down with an ankle sprain, while LeBron James and Rajon Rondo both went down with injuries on Christmas Day in a match against the Golden State Warriors. LeBron has been nursing a groin injury while Rondo has had a torn ligament in his finger. The Lakers finally have some good news though, as Rondo should be back in the lineup on Thursday, according to head coach Luke Walton. "I think Rondo will play Thursday as long as he continues to move with no setbacks until then, but that will be something that we'll keep pushing him and we'll re-evaluate each morning," Walton told ESPN. Harry How/Getty Images He continued by commenting on LeBron's status as he continues to rehab his groin injury. "I haven't seen him do contact yet, so I don't feel as confident," Walton explained. "But I know you know how serious he is about his rehab. So he's doing everything possible and we've talked. I know he's dying to get back on the basketball court, but he also knows that getting healthy is the top priority." The Lakers are ninth in the Western Conference with a record of 25-23 and will take on the Minnesota Timberwolves Thursday night in L.A. View the full article
  14. Unconventional though he may be, Danny Brown sits among the closest we've got to a hip-hop auteur. Selective in his instrumentation, the unapologetic visionary has continuously forged onward while crafting albums on his own terms. Sadly, it's been a minute since we've heard a full-length drop from Danny, with Atrocity Exhibition a little over two years behind us. Of course, the Detroit rapper has been hard at work on his upcoming project, which may or may feature the exclusive production stylings of a "legendary" producer. At the time, many wondered whether Run The Jewels producer El-P was Danny's newfangled creative partner. Recently, however, El took to Twitter to tease the upcoming Danny Brown album, reacting like a fan hearing something for the first time. "Welp @xdannyxbrownx just played me his new album and even unmixed it’s an instant classic, imho," writes El Producto. "True story." Hype-inducing to be sure, and low key informative. We now know that Danny's untitled project is awaiting the mixing stages, and given that El has managed to score an exclusive listening session, it's entirely possible he's involved in the album to a degree. Perhaps he's even taking a behind-the-boards role. Are you ready for an "instant classic?" View the full article
  15. The Los Angeles Rams defeated the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship game on Sunday by a score of 26-23 in overtime. It was an incredibly exciting game, however, one interesting storyline was the lack of playing time for Rams star running back Todd Gurley. Gurley was seen on the sidelines for the majority of the game, with some thinking he may be injured. Rams coach Sean McVay explained what happened with Gurley on Sunday. “I for sure should’ve done a better job of getting Todd more involved,” McVay explained to reporters. “Todd’s healthy. He’s feeling good. … I’ve got to get him more opportunities.” Gurley was involved early, but he dropped a couple passes and wasn't effective at picking up yards, although he did end up punching in a touchdown in the first half. “The whole team did its thing,” Gurley said, via “Everybody kept me up during the game. That's why it's a team sport. This is the greatest team sport in America. It takes everybody, everybody on the team and that's what we did.” Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images McVay continued by saying Gurley will definitely get a better shot to show just how good he is when the team goes to the Super Bowl. “He didn't have a lot of opportunities to play much better,” McVay said according to Sporting News. “I think that's where I've got ownership in that as well and the great thing about it is he'll get a chance to make a big-time contribution and have a big-time role in our game against the Patriots.” The Super Bowl will be played on February 3rd in Atlanta.
