  2. Katherine Johnson, a pioneering NASA mathematician, died Monday at the age of 101. Johnson is celebrated for helping send Americans into orbit and to the moon. NASA tweeted about Johnson's death, saying "we celebrate her 101 years of life and honor her legacy of excellence that broke down racial and social barriers." Our @NASA family is sad to learn the news that Katherine Johnson passed away this morning at 101 years old. She was an American hero and her pioneering legacy will never be forgottenhttps://t.co/UPOqo0sLfb pic.twitter.com/AgtxRnA89h — Jim Bridenstine (@JimBridenstine) February 24, 2020 Read more...

  4. The Chainsmokers recently wrapped up their expansive World War Joy tour with 5SOS in support of their latest album of the same name. With blink182, a motorcycle globe of death, and more memorable moments, the tour was a smashing success and the trio have now cemented themselves as one of the biggest artist groups in the world. But, now that the tour is over, it’s onto the next one… and before that, TCS4 is on its way. In order to focus more on the album and force themselves into that creative mode, The Chainsmokers have announced a break from social media. “Hey everybody. We are going to be taking some time to create our next chapter in music. We have never been more inspired and are already hard at work on TCS4 but we are going to be taking a break from social media (minus a few obligations) to give it the attention it needs.” They assure fans they’ll be back “soon (ish)” and the next time we see their faces on IG will be when the next album is ready. The group still has loads and loads of unreleased bangers, many of which they showed off at Ultra 2019. Hopefully those aren’t just live IDs and will eventually be released, if not as part of their next album, then as some sort of EP series in the interim like Griz’s Bangers series. Either way, brace yourself for a break from The Chainsmokers in 2020. Photo via Rukes.com This article was first published on Your EDM.

  7. Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were killed in a helicopter crash on January 26th in California. There were seven other people on board who also lost their lives. The news sent shockwaves throughout the NBA and the world at large. Since the tragic accident, numerous tributes have poured in for the nine victims. In fact, today, there is a public memorial at the Staples Center where Kobe and Gianna will be honored. Kobe's wife, Vanessa, has made a few statements on social media since the passing of her husband and daughter. As you can imagine, Bryant is extremely hurt by what's happened and she is looking for answers. According to TMZ, Vanessa recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Island Express which is the company that owned the helicopter Kobe was flying in. Harry How/Getty Images Vanessa is saying that the helicopter never should have been allowed to fly in such terrible conditions and that the pilot, Ara George Zobayan, was flying too fast. In the report, it states that Zobayan had been punished for violating rules in the past. Court documents allege the pilot was going 180 MPH while flying through the fog. Stay tuned for updates on this case as we will be sure to bring them to you. View the full article

  9. The Los Angeles Lakers will be holding 'A Celebration of Life for Kobe and Gianna Bryant' today, February 24th (2/24), as a nod to the numbers worn by both Gigi and Kobe.

  12. Never one to box himself in, Young Nudy has officially shrugged off the traditional Friday release date and dropping off his brand new Anyways album this afternoon. Clocking in at sixteen tracks and fifty-eight minutes, it's a major effort from the affable Slime Boss, who has continued to perfect his whimsical trap formula. And why not, given that it has helped set him apart as one of Atlanta's more interesting up-and-comers on a musical level. Given that Anyways only recently arrived a half-hour ago, it was difficult to engage in a deep dive off the bat. Yet there was something about "No Comprende" that called out to me. Perhaps it's the infectious beat from 20 Rocket, which sounds like a young robot discovering that drug dealing is hardwired into its coding. Lyrically, Nudy has more questions than The Riddler and he's eager for answers. "Damn, where your potted pan?" asks Nudy. "No weight on your block, who is this man?" He proceeds to float over the instrumental in typical fashion, firing off his free verse bars and taking the piss outta anyone he deems unworthy. "Kick a n***a head like Jiu-Jitsu," he warns. "When it come to gettin' money that's what I'm gon' do!" Quotable Lyrics How do I know you? You ain't been in these streets for none Been in the field busting guns Tunnel vision runnin' from twelve for none Duckin dodgin bullets, n***a it was fun Shit mo' better when a n***a got a gun View the full article
  13. Things were out of control between Alexis Skyy, Ari Fletcher, and Jayda Cheaves on social media this weekend after Skyy claimed that she paved the way for the latter two to succeed -- a comment that did not sit well with them in the least bit. Jayda, who is Lil Baby's girlfriend, went into attack mode and when she got a little too spicy, Skyy attempted to sit her down by claiming she's having a side fling with the "Drip Too Hard" rapper. Prince Williams/Wireimage/Getty Images "I suggest you sit TF down b4 I come around & snatch MY N***A back aga... NVM you'll see," wrote Alexis Skyy in response to one of Jayda's comments. She even threatened to drop receipts on the matter. Well, Lil Baby doesn't play about his name or his girl, and he decided to step into the ring to clear up those allegations. "Won't let the devil in but I stay with some demons," wrote the rapper before hammering off a few other tweets. "You tried it hoe, that shit ain't work. Ain never cap in my rap! That shit embarrassing." While Lil Baby doesn't necessarily specify that he's addressing this particular situation, the timing adds up perfectly. Jayda Cheaves was heavily involved in the back-and-forth, which will likely continue into this week. View the full article
  14. When a recording artist passes away, there are two different ways that fans tend to react. They either dive into their discographies and interviews, hoping to honor the artist's legacy and salvage the artist's memory. While some may be able to derive joy from the artist's work and pay tribute to them in this fashion, others may find this too painful of a reminder that someone they admired is gone. For those who can muster the strength, Pop Smoke's final interview is making rounds online. He speaks to the hosts of BBC Asian Network, DJ Limelight and Kan D Man, about his wave of success and his recently-released project Meet The Woo 2. The clip serves as a devastating reminder of where the Brooklyn rapper was heading and also how respectful of a guy he was. Before the hosts start asking him questions, he asks them where they're from and establishes a connection over their shared Middle Eastern roots. He goes on to discuss his breakout song, "Welcome To The Party", and the various UK producers he had linked up with. He seems genuinely appreciate of all the good fortune that was coming his way. "Life just work like that," he said. "You never know when the blessing comes your way." Last Wednesday (Feb. 19), Pop Smoke suffered a fatal gunshot wound during a home invasion in Hollywood Hills. Police are still investigating whether it was a targeted hit. View the full article
  15. Zion Williamson came into the NBA with the weight of the world on his shoulders and very few people expected him to live up to the lofty expectations thrust upon him. When you're the number one overall pick, people expect a lot out of you and with Williamson, that was no different. After sustaining a knee injury prior to the start of the season, there was this fear that Zion would be a bust. Just a month ago, Zion finally came back into the Pelicans lineup and he has been on a tear ever since. Last night, Williamson helped propel the Pelicans to a win over the Golden State Warriors as he scored 28 points. Perhaps his best highlight was immediately after missing a free throw. In the clip below, Williamson gets his own rebound, misses the put-back, rips the ball away from Damion Lee, and scores before being fouled. It was an incredible play that speaks to just how good Williamson has been this season. Zion has all of the strength in the world and it's clear that some teams don't know how to properly play against him yet. To be fair, this happened against the Warriors who haven't exactly been an NBA-caliber team this year. Regardless, Williamson is already looking like a superstar and you can't help but just marvel at his athleticism. View the full article

  17. The Atlanta rapper Young Nudy has come up rapping on the bleary, chaotic beats of ascendant producer Pi'erre Bourne. Nudy was the first artist of any note to work with Bourne, and last year, the two of them teamed up for the collaborative album Sli'merre. At the time, I mostly heard Nudy as … More »View the full article
  18. The Sony Xperia 1 II. It would have been Mobile World Congress this week if not for the panic over the coronavirus—so get ready for plenty of news from the world of international smartphones. First up, we have a reminder that Sony is still out there making cellular telephones, and last night it announced the "Sony Xperia 1 II." Wait, the what?! The "Sony Xperia One Two?" Actually, this is branded similarly to the Sony cameras, so just as the "Sony A7 III" is pronounced "Sony Alpha seven mark three," this thing is apparently the "Sony Xperia One Mark Two." Wild. Like most of the phones that will be announced this week, this is a flagship 2020 smartphone with the Snapdragon 865 and 5G, though Sony opted to only include mid-band 5G and not mmWave. There is a 6.5-inch, 3840×1644 OLED display, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4000mAh battery. The phone is IP68 rated, and it has a MicroSD slot and wireless charging. It may also be the only flagship smartphone in 2020 with a headphone jack. Like every other Sony smartphone, the design is very square and rather handsome looking. While the rest of the industry is all about maximizing display space with camera notches and other display blemishes, Sony has a pair of symmetrical bezels on the top and bottom that house front-facing stereo speakers and the front camera. The combination of bezels and a 21:9 display makes this one of the tallest smartphones on the market, with measurements of 166mm × 72mm × 7.9mm.

  21. Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is apparently no longer interested in playing football, at any level, despite his recent tweets about joining the XFL. On Friday, prior to Week 3 of the XFL season, Manziel tweeted, "I'm Back!!!!" before hitting send on another tweet, offering to take the XFL's ratings "to another level." "Oliver Luck. If ya wanna boost your ratings to another level just send me the contract tomorrow and we’re in there. Like I said YEARS ago... XFL2020 give the people what they want," Manziel tweeted. However, Johnny Football insists that he was just messing around. Wesley Hitt/AAF/Getty Images Shortly after his tweet started to pickup steam, the former Heisman trophy winner tweeted the following, "Have zero desire to play any football these days. Just love stirring up controversy." He added, "Love trollin." Even if the 27-year old QB was dead serious about playing for the XFL, commissioner Oliver Luck maintains that the league is just fine without him. When asked why guys like Manziel, or former Colts running back Trent Richardson, aren't currently rostered, Luck explained (H/T Tampa Bay Times): "I would argue that the players we have are better than those guys, to be honest with you. Johnny has his own history, and we have coaches from the CFL (Canadian Football League) who have seen him close up. I watched Trent when he was with the Colts, and I watched him when he was with the AAF. He was in the draft pool. Coaches and scouts looked at him and didn’t think he was going to help their team. I think the guys we have on our teams are the best 560 that aren’t playing in the National Football League." Following his disastrous NFL career, Manziel was given opportunities with the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the now defunct Alliance of American Football (AFL), but it doesn't look like he'll get a chance to complete the cycle in the XFL, whether he wants to or not.

  26. Cruise recently received a permit to transport passengers in its autonomous vehicles in California. Granted by the California Public Utilities Commission, the permit is part of the state’s Autonomous Vehicle Passenger Service pilot. As part of the program, Cruise must provide data and reports to the CPUC regarding any incidents, the number of passenger miles traveled and passenger safety protocols. Cruise must also have a safety driver behind the wheel and not charge passengers for rides. Cruise is now one of five self-driving companies allowed to participate in this program. The others are Zoox, Waymo, Pony.ai, Aurora and AutoX. This program is a bit different from the one run by the California Department of Motor Vehicles, which has granted 66 companies permits to test their respective vehicles in the state. Cruise originally aimed to launch its robotaxi service last year, but it scrapped those plans last July due to technical challenges, and the creation of a vehicle platform and the ride-hailing app itself. At this point, it’s unclear as to when we can expect to see Cruise deploy any type of public service. TechCrunch has reached out to Cruise and will update this story if we hear back.
