  1. The fashion in the NBA is funny. In the short walk from the outside of the stadium to the locker rooms, athletes like to show off their fashion sense. LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, and Karl-Anthony Towns are all players that are known to take their outfits very serious, and in turn, we've grown to critique and enjoy their wild styles. Westbrook is used to the internet gunning on him for his style of fit, but James Harden is the latest celebrity to get roasted. Harden and the Houston Rockets took on the Los Angeles Lakers yesterday (December 13), and his entrance was widely panned by those watching. The Rockets did pull off the 126-111 win, but none of that matters right now. The only thing people could talk about after the game was Harden's snakeskin suit. As if the odd-colored fit wasn't eye-popping enough, Harden decided to don matching snakeskin suit shorts. The sportscasters watching Harden walk to the locker rooms were just as shocked. Meek Mill decided to add his two cents to the conversation as well. The Championships rapper responded to Harden directly by commenting on a picture he posted of the outfit. "I just talked to chief he said that ain't it bro," joked Meek. View the full article
  2. When Spider-Man joined the MCU, the deal wasn't meant to last forever. Sony scooped up the movie rights for Spidey back in the 90's when Marvel licensed their characters out to help make up for failing comic sales. The X-Men sold to Fox and Spidey went to Sony. Nobody wanted the Avengers. I bet industry executives are slapping themselves over that one. Now that Disney has bought Fox, the X-Men and Deadpool will be at home with Marvel once again. Sony and Disney entered into a joint venture to work with Spider-Man, but that deal will be coming to a close after a trilogy is completed. One would think Sony wants to be greedy and take Spidey back, but Sony executive Amy Pascal wants the wall-crawler to stay in the MCU. “I think about crying,” Pascal told Vanity Fair when asked about Spidey leaving the MCU. "I can only hope for a future where things work out. I’ve known Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios producer] since he was [Avi Arad’s] very, very quiet assistant, who for many years sat in that room listening to us and being so much smarter than any of us without any of us realizing. I will say that working with Marvel has been one of the highlights of my professional career." Feige and Pascal's relationship helped broker the deal between Disney and Sony, but the latter's ability to demand when the films drop has caused issues. For example, Sony making sure that Far From Home dropped in 2019 severely screwed with Disney's plan of keeping the details of "dead" Avengers under wraps. View the full article
  3. Kanye West hopped on Twitter last night and went on an hours-long rant against Drake. 'Ye started by trying to get Drake's attention, and the rant seemed to end after Mr. West tweeted that Drake finally called him. Afterward, West hopped back on Twitter though and claimed that Drake threatened him and his family. Kim Kardashian even hopped into the online feud, and admonished Drake for threatening the fam. Both West and his wife took shots at Drake, claiming that 'Ye paved the path for his success. The out of control Twitter feud had many wondering... Don't Kanye and Drake live right next to each other? Apparently, Tyrese feels the same way. TMZ caught up with Tyrese on Friday (December 14), and asked him how he felt about the Twitter war. "Oh, they got a history man. You know, it's the male ego," started the Fast & Furious actor. "I don't know nothing about that, that ain't none of my business," explained Ty when asked about Kanye's claims that Drake threatened his family. "When you from the hood, you know how to stay out of folks business." When the TMZ reporter brought up Ty's online feud with Dwayne Johnson, the singer and actor just laughed. "Take it from me, handling shit on social media when you're beefing with somebody is not always the smartest thing to do," he admitted. "They live literally 2 blocks from each other," he continued. "They both live in Hidden Hills. They putting shit on social media when they live that close." View the full article
  4. Papoose and Remy Ma are celebrating the birth of their first child together this evening. Remy gave birth to the child on Friday (December 14), and took to Instagram to announce that the little bundle of joy is a baby girl. "The Golden Child is here!!!," she wrote on a pink color post with the gender announcement. "Thank you @papoosepapoose for making me the the (sic) happiest wife in the planet🥰 #BlackLove #RemAndPap #BabyMackie #ShesMADDDDcute😢." The birth of the precious baby girl comes at the end of what was a long and tough labor for Remy. "Tough labor... but my wife, is still fighting through it. She's a warrior," wrote Papoose earlier in the day. Last year, the couple was hit with tragedy after Remy Ma suffered a miscarriage. At the time, she was told she wouldn't be able to give birth. "This was a hard time for me & my husband & we thought long and hard before deciding to share this part of our lives with you all," Remy wrote on Instagram at the time in a since-deleted post. "I was totally against it but in a fit of crying @papoosepapoose said 'you are not the only one going thru this , we will get thru it' ...made me realize how many women like myself experience the same thing and don't have a strong partner by their side to say it will be alright." We're happy to see Remy and Papoose defy the odds and start their own family. God bless. View the full article
  5. The love story between Cardi B and Offset came to an end last week when the "Bodak Yellow" rapper revealed that she left her husband. Rumors began to swirl before leaked text messages unveiled Offset's adulterous ways. Since the break-up, Cardi has been devout in her intentions to get a divorce. This may have been the final straw for her, and the hip-hop audience has suspected for a while that Offset was doing his own thing. Remember, fans believed the song "Be Careful" was about Offset at the time. Maybe it was prophetic. Christopher Polk/Getty Images for Coachella On Friday (December 14), Offset took to Instagram to post a video where he pleads for Cardi to come back. He admits that he entertained the idea of sleeping around, but he never actually did it. Still, he is genuinely remorseful and wants his wife back. "I only got one birthday wish," he begins. "That's to get my wife back. Cardi, you know what I'm saying, we going through a lot of things right now, a lot of things in the media. I want to apologize to you Cardi, you know I ain't mean to embarrass you. I made you look crazy, doing things I had no business. I was partaking in activities that I shouldn't have been 'takin in. And I apologize, for breaking your heart." View the full article
  6. The feud between Ski Mask The Slump God and Vic Mensa is apparently over, according to the Stokeley rapper. Ski Mask recently told TMZ that he and Vic Mensa are now cool after speaking with each other and putting their differences aside. "A lot of shit was going on in the backend with me and Vic Mensa. It could've got to more dangerous shit. We stopped it," Ski Mask said. "Our people talked and basically, we just deaded it from where it was going. Because it was going in a dangerous route. You know what I mean? There's enough black violence. There's enough gun violence. There's enough young people with money out here just wasting their careers on stupid shit like that. I guess we both just figured it would be smarter to just dead that shit." However, just because the two of them are on good terms, doesn't mean a collaboration is in order. When asked if he would do a song with Vic, Ski Mask responded, "Peace is enough. I don't think I would collab with him." Vic Mensa sparked controversy earlier this year when he dissed XXXTENTACION while the late rapper's mother was in the crowd. Ski Mask issued a warning to Mensa, saying that if Mensa apologizes, there won't be any issues. Mensa apologized to X's mother, but he has continued to stand by the statements he made during his freestyle. View the full article
  7. J. Cole and Logic who receive an overwhelming amount of hate for little reason. They both mind their business, make their music and don't start any trouble. Unfortunately, they also face the wrath of Internet trolls on a daily basis. Cole's managed to remove himself from the public eye when he's not releasing music, but Logic serves as more of a public figure. In his recent cover story with Billboard, Logic explained how J. Cole helped him open his eyes about Internet troll. As Logic's fame increased, so did the amount of hate he received. The rapper recalled the hate he received on social media following his very public divorce from his ex-wife. He ended up having a conversation with J. Cole -- a fellow rapper who's often described as corny -- for some advice about the situation. “I was like, ‘It’s just so fucked up that people can think I’m this way or that way. I’m a good man. Why would someone talk shit about me?’” Cole, according to Logic, responded, “‘Well, why do you care?’” Logic began to ask himself: “Why do I care that that person said my music isn't that good? That I’m a fuccboi or I’m corny or I’m a hypebeast? Why does it matter?” Cole then began to dig deeper into Logic's mind and ran through a list of questions for the YSIV rapper to answer for more clarity. Are you corny? “No, I write from the heart.” But why does it hurt when someone says that about you? “I guess it hurts because they don’t really know who I am.” Well, why do you need that person to really know who you are? “Because I feel like if they know who I am, then they’ll like me.” Why do you need that person to like you? “I guess I don’t need them to like me, I just want them to like me.” View the full article
  8. Many emerging R&B acts dropped off impressive debut albums this year including Arin Ray. The former X-Factor contestant has been steadily winning over the hearts of fans across the country with each one of his efforts. Platinum Fire, his debut album, dropped in March and he's been on the road and pushing the project heavily. Before the year wraps up, Ray delivers the deluxe edition to his debut album. Arin Ray comes through with three new tracks on Platinum Fire (Deluxe). The deluxe edition of the project has a collaboration with legendary R&B singer, Babyface. The two link up on "Always." The project still has the rest of the project including Ray's collaborations with YG, DRAM, SiR, Ty Dolla $ign, Childish Major and more. View the full article
  9. Kanye West acknowledged the fact that he's changed over the years on TLOP acapella cut, "I Love Kanye." However, many people feel that his wife Kim Kardashian is to blame for his behavior and attitude in recent years. Kanye's mother Donda never had the chance to meet Kim or even approve of her. Donda's best friend reportedly said recently that if she was still alive, she wouldn't have given Kanye West the approval to marry Kim. Frank Micelotta/Getty Images BBC Three's new documentary, Searching For... Kanye, Ben Zand speaks to some of Kanye's closest friends and family about the recent years of his life and career, The Sun reports. Dr. Brenda Aghahowa, Donda West's best friend, said that she doesn't think the rapper's late mother would be confused about his relationship with Kim Kardashian. "I don't know where some of this is coming from," she said in the doc. "I think Donda would've been scratching her head a bit about it." She added, "I can hear her saying about Kim Kardashian: 'You couldn't find an African queen? Are black women not good enough?'" The documentary is set to air this Sunday on BBC Three. Aside from the doc, Kanye West went on a Twitter tirade against Drake yesterday, accusing the "In My Feelings" rapper of threatening him and his family. Drake's yet to respond and it feels like he might only do it on wax. View the full article
  10. Over the years, Gucci Mane has built up an impressive roster as he continues to put a focus on developing young talent. Atlanta is bursting at the seams with rap prospects and 1017 Eskimo houses a good number of upcoming forces. Mal & Quill have been bubbling for months as they recently impressed with their Souf6 effort with Richie Souf. Now, the duo returns with seventeen bangers, packaging the new songs as part of their fresh mixtape Blessed Young Bastards 3. The work includes features from Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Lil Gotit, Q Money, Guap Tarantino, and more as Mal & Quill continue to show off their skills on the mic.

  11. Nancy Wilson sealed her fate in jazz and R&B and the Great American Songbook, as “a song stylist with an unmistakable stamp of icy hauteur,” as the writer James Gavin perfectly put it in a Facebook post memorializing her. Wilson died Thursday at 81 at her home in Pioneertown, Calif., after a long... View the full article
  12. Many of us only know Khia for her raunchy single "My Neck My Back." The 2002 single is undisputedly her most popular single as it still gets referenced sixteen years later. The singer has had a lengthy career, releasing a handful of albums for her fans. Khia is definitely what one would call a "bad bitch" and she's making sure that she breaks a couple necks on the street when she walks around town. A few weeks ago, she showed off the results of her surgery and now, she's back at it as she looks better than ever before. She's feeling herself and her new look, putting both hands on her behind and flaunting that work. Khia notes that she still feels sore but that she's loving the results of her Brazillian Butt Lift. A few videos were posted online from her live stream at the doctor's office as she flaunted her new accentuated curves. During the operation, the doctor made sure she ended up with a big booty and a slim waist so that she could be the talk of the town again. What do you think of the appearance changes Khia has made? She seems to be happy with the results. View the full article
  13. Yung Gravy's satirical style has caught the attention of the Soundcloud rap world. The rapper's been buzzing throughout the year following the numerous singles he's unleashed, but today, he might have dropped what could be his biggest single to date. Alongside Atlanta's rising star, Lil Baby, Yung Gravy returns with his new single, "Alley Oop." Yung Gravy teams up with Lil Baby for their new collaboration, "Alley Oop." The song, which Gravy describes as the "hardest song" he's ever made, kicks off with Yung Gravy over a bass-heavy, string-based beat that fits Baby's style well. "I was in Atlanta making a song about Atlanta to show love back (ATL stays my #1 fanbase) and about hooping cause @karltowns made me love the culture way more than I had. It got played in the QC studio and @lilbaby_1loved it so now we got ALLEY OOP," he wrote on Instagram. "Gravy with the assist , baby with the finish."

  14. Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz was recently diagnosed with Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, aka TOS, which will keep him on the sidelines for several more weeks. Though Fultz hasn't played in nearly a month and is currently rehabbing in Los Angeles, several NBA teams have reached out to the Sixers in hopes of trading for the 20-year old former #1 overall pick. However, as Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports, those offers have all been rejected. Buckner notes: "According to people in the league, the Sixers have rejected multiple trade offers for Fultz. It’s not just that Philadelphia remains hopeful in getting Fultz on track to be a star in Philadelphia — much like prior top picks Ben Simmons and Embiid, who both missed their rookie seasons because of injuries." "The Sixers have not received trade offers with what they believe to be equal value, a telling sign that indicates how other teams in the league view Fultz and the rocky start to his career." Among the teams that have reportedly expressed interest in Fultz is the Detroit Pistons. Fultz, the 2017 #1 overall pick by the Sixers, missed most of his rookie season with a shoulder injury and his struggles shooting the ball have been well documented over the course of his young NBA career. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that there's optimism Fultz will return in three to six weeks, depending on the success of his rehab and pain tolerance. In 19 games this season, Fultz is averaging 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists. The Sixers, 19-10, will host the Indiana Pacers tonight. View the full article
  15. Kim Kardashian has been vocal about her daughter's love for makeup before and it seems like it's gotten to a point where rules have to be enforced. Kim chatted with Refinery29 and said that five-year-old North West loves doing makeovers on her friends and dolls and is even lucky enough to get a lot of free makeup from her mom. "When companies send makeup and I have a lot, I’ll give it to her," Kim told the publication. Kim plans to take some notes from her father's handbook when it comes to knowing the dos and don'ts when it comes to beauty tricks. "I remember when I was 14, my dad for Christmas got me a makeup class," Kim explained. "And I went to makeup school. He was like, 'I don't want you girls looking crazy. If you’re gonna wear makeup, I want you to learn to do it in the right way.' That was really helpful and I think I will take a cue from that. I’m definitely going to set guidelines." As for the two things North can't wear it's simple: "I don't think she should wear lashes or too dark of a lipstick," Kim said adding how makeup is "a form of expression." "So I want her to express herself, but I want her to be appropriate, too." View the full article
  16. The beef between Drake and Pusha-T has reached new levels at this point. There are sub-feuds to it as now, the most intense back-and-forth is happening between Kanye West and the 6 God. Kanye has already promised that he won't be recording any diss records directed at Drake but Pusha-T didn't hold back as much. The Virginia rapper unleashed a furious barrage onto Drizzy, revealing that the Canadian has a secret son with Sophie Brussaux, a former camgirl. Although every episode of Everyday Struggle is pretty entertaining, this week introduced Tory Lanez to the panel as he gave his opinion on who won the heated battle. A few years ago, Tory wouldn't have hesitated before choosing Pusha-T as the winner. However, now that his own issues have been settled with Drake, Lanez made an unorthodox choice and pick his fellow Torontonian. The general consensus remains that Push dropped the better diss songs of the two. Many of his references were built on shock value though, which Tory alludes to, saying that he wasn't a fan of the way Push went about things. Specifically, the line about Drake's producer 40 and his MS diagnosis went a little too far. Tory touched on a few other hot topics, including Kodak Black's walk-out of his interview with Ebro. Tory took Kodak's side there, saying that Ebro was on some "b*tch ass n***a shit." View the full article
  17. Despite having a new hit song with Swae Lee at the moment called “Sunflower,” off the new Spiderman soundtrack, Post Malone looks to be readying another record for fans. Late last night, the BeerBongs & Bentley rapper took to his Twitter to inform us that he’s dropping a new song by the end of the year, or better yet within three weeks. He didn’t provide any other information about the record, like what it’s called or where it’s coming off of, but it’s definitely nice to hear more tunes from Posty is on the way. The announcement came on the heels of Post Malone’s new croc’s selling out this week and being resold for nearly $800 dollars. Hopefully Post Malone will have a third drop of the Croc release for fans to try and cop, or better yet maybe he inks a partnership deal altogether. While we wait for Posty’s upcoming song to arrive, hear him on the newly-released Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse soundtrack right here. Other features on the soundtrack include Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Juice WRLD, Ty Dolla $ign, and Vince Staples, among others. View the full article
  18. A few weeks back The-Dream reappeared to let his many fans know that he's working on three albums that will be available by the end of the year, arriving on December 21st. He accompanied the big news with a message letting us know that he "never f*cking left" which makes us assume he's been taking in all that 2018 was musically, waiting for his own time to shine. The "Shawty Is Da Shit" music maker has now dropped off the official track list for all three of his LP's titled Ménage à Trois: Sextape Vol. 1, 2, 3. “On December 21st, all artists that want that smoke go find a bunker… hide!,” Radio Killa said. “This ain’t church R&B ni**a. I changed that 10 years ago. Don’t show your face until the storm has blown over. I am out of my fucking mind!!! 38 songs, no fillers! Three complete bodies of work.” The tracklist looks to have zero features and the 38 songs (40 including the two interludes) ties in exactly with the name of the tape, as all titles allude to bedroom happenings. Check out the full list below, are you guys hyped for this? Volume 1: 1. “Hardcore Pleasure” 2. “No Rappers Allowed” 3. “Forever” 4. “Challenger” 5. “Back In Love” 6. “Night Thang” 7. “Tuxedo” 8. “On the Regular” 9. “Platter” 10. “Top” 11. “Hell Mary” 12. “Life” 13. “It’s Yo Birthday” 14.

  19. Tekashi 6ix9ine is currently sitting behind bars, awaiting trial for his racketeering and firearms charges. He's not here to promote the album, but the fact that he's currently jailed might play a factor in the commercial success of DUMMY BOY. Although he never earned his rightfully earned number one album, the rapper's still doing numbers on the chart. DUMMY BOY showcased the various styles of 6ix9ine: his aggressive rapping style, his autotune-laden radio hits, and of course, his Latin pop sounds. The rapper collaborated with Anuel AA on two songs -- the previously released "BEBE" and "MALA." The latter of which serves as Tekashi 6ix9ine's latest single to enter the Hot Latin Songs chart. Tekashi 6ix9ine earned his second top 10 single on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart with "MALA." The song climbed up three spots to number 7 after debuting at #11 with only three full streaming days. "BEBE" previously topped claimed the top spot on the chart. "MALA" gained 6.8 million streams in the U.S. in the week ending on Dec. 6. For Anuel, this serves as his fifth top 10 single on the Latin Songs Chart. In addition to "MALA," the Latin artist currently has four songs in the top 10 including "Ella Quiere Beber" with Romeo Santos, "Bebe" which sits at number 6 and "Asesina" with Brytiago, Darell, Daddy Yankee and Ozuna which currently sits at number 9.

  20. On the artwork of Cassius Jay and Lil Uzi Vert's new collaboration "Big Racks," the "Lil" has been conspicuously dropped from Uzi's moniker. Perhaps it signifies a sense of artistic growth, from boy to man; perhaps it merely speaks to a desire to give the snake's face more room. In any case, the rapper has returned with an official follow-up to the acclaimed "New Patek." While he's not exactly going off for six minutes, Uzi is still bringing enough bars to please both ends of the musical spectrum; naturally, however, the drip remains a dominant element of his persona. "Used to watch that Sailor Moon, but I still feel like a goon," snarls Uzi, "I was broke pockets had room, remember I didn't have rooms." One has to wonder if he used to imagine himself as a Tuxedo Mask of sorts, though he never has been one to forsake a colorful outfit. On that note, Uzi makes sure to line his lyrics with materialistic references, reminding listeners that his AP is indeed lined with diamonds. If you've got it, flaunt it. Stay tuned for that new Uzi album Eternal Atake, presumably coming next year - unless the Heaven's Gate cult kidnaps him. Quotable Lyrics Used to watch that Sailor Moon, But I still feel like a goon I was broke pockets had room Remember I didn't have rooms Now my new crib, that bitch got hundred rooms View the full article
  21. Earlier this year, the identity of Drake's baby mama was revealed to the world. Unfortunately, the Canadian star didn't have a chance to tell the world in the manner that he wanted. Instead, the information was leaked to Pusha-T, who released a diss track called "The Story of Adidon." You've all heard the song by now. Push accuses Drake of fathering a secret child with a camgirl, which turned out to actually be true. After Kanye West went wild on Twitter last night, Drake seemingly responded with threats and laughing emojis. His baby mama was a little more vocal though, commenting on an Instagram post with her own shots at Ye. While Kanye insists he's not the person who leaked the information to Pusha-T, Sophie Brussaux is still backing Drake in this battle. Ariana Grande tweeted that the "two grown men arguing" should calm down so that her single can get some attention. The tweet was reposted by The Shade Room and Sophie Brussaux decided to step in, firing off a few shots in the comment section: "I would hardly call Kanye arguing with himself 'grown men.'" Yikes. She's right, though. This has been fairly one-sided as the only public statements have been made by West at this point. Drake has saved his big talk for the phone call he allegedly made to Ye's residence. This is getting serious. [via] View the full article
  22. Grammy-winning Colombian singer Shakira was charged with tax evasion on Friday by Spanish prosecutors alleging that the artist failed to pay more than $16 million in taxes between 2012 and 2014, according to the Associated Press. The charges come after a year-long investigation into the singer’s... View the full article
  23. With R&B in the midst of a resurgence, there's been an upswing of artists pushing the genre out of the shadows of hip-hop. And it's the ladies who are doing the heavy lifting of getting R&B back to its soulful roots. Here are some of the risk-takers pushing R&B into the future. View the full article
  24. In the '90s, R&B's influence was indelible. Artists dominated the charts with record-breaking singles and the explosion of groups - both male and female - created a boon for the genre. But as hip-hop continued its rise, the genre lost its way. View the full article
  25. As a crop of young R&B singers looking toward the past land hits with forward-thinking yet nostalgic tunes, longtime veterans of the game have continued to feel the pinch. Here's how Tank, Ledisi, Tamia, Mary J. Blige and more stalwart R&B talents have adapted and survived. View the full article
