  1. The shocking news of Josie Harris's death was shared back in March, and since that time, the family of the mother of three has been doing their best to restructure their lives without her. The 40-year-old was reportedly found unresponsive while inside of her vehicle outside of her Valencia, Calif. home, and it was later revealed that she died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl and Xanax. Floyd Mayweather and Josie were together on and off for 15 years and the death of the mother of three of his children was devastating for the championship boxer. He took to social media to share old photos of their time together as he publicly grieved for his ex, and it has recently been reported that he has filed paperwork to take charge of her estate. According to The Blast, Mayweather fled legal documents requesting that he be named the executor of Josie's estate. She reportedly died without a will, and while two of their children are legal adults, Mayweather states in the documents that they "have 'failed' to act on behalf of their mother." The documents reads that Mayweather is "the father of (Josie's) children and he is a creditor. (Josie) has no spouse and her two adult children have declined to act." Immediately prior to Josie's untimely death, she was engaged in a lawsuit against Mayweather with millions of dollars on the line. Harris sued Mayweather for $20 million over an interview he conducted where she claimed he lied about her, including allegations that when he was arrested in 2010 for domestic violence again Josie, she was abusing drugs. She also stated that he was repeatedly physically abusive throughout their relationship. Now, Mayweather has requested that a "special administrator" of his choosing, attorney Ron Rale, handle her estate "in her child support case" against him. The sports star would like Rale to "settle or to dismiss the case." The paperwork also suggested that Josie Harris was only worth $22K when she died, but that doesn't include any of her assets or property. [via] View the full article
  2. The dissension regarding the 2021 Grammy Award nominations rolls on, but The Recording Academy's Black Music Collective Honorary Chairs have issued a statement to the Black Music Collective Leadership Council. Many have complained that there is a lack of women and Black representation in this year's nominees, leading some such as Drake or Charlamagne The God to speak openly about the division between the Grammys and the culture. Nicki Minaj recently spoke about her snub back in 2012 when she didn't win with numerous singles still on the charts, and The Weeknd had one of the most celebrated albums of the year with After Hours but he didn't receive any nominations, at all. In the letter from the Honorary Chairs including Jimmy Jam, Quincy Jones, Debra Lee, and John Legend, they congratulated all of the nominees for the 2021 year. "Especially the Black nominees who represent one of the most inclusive Black artist nomination rosters in years," the letter reads. "It's a historic year as 10 Black women are nominated in the top four categories and more than 20 Black nominees are represented in the General Fields. Also, for the first time, all 6 nominees for Best Rap Album are Black independent artists. This is progress." They acknowledged that "every awards cycle" can bring disappointments, but The Recording Academy is looking to become more inclusive as there is still work to be done. Read through the statement in its entirety below. View the full article
  3. Just when you think that this situation can't get any more strange, Kelsey Nicole surfaces with a diss track. The former best friend of Megan Thee Stallion has been taking hits from the public following the July shooting incident involving the Houston rapper and Tory Lanez. There has been much speculation as to what really went down that fateful night when Megan was injured, but each party involved has shared their version of the truth. Megan insists that Lanez shot her following an argument, while Tory claims that he wasn't responsible for Meg's injuries. The public has weighed in heavily for the last four months and after she was accused of being the shooter, Kelsey adamantly denied that she pulled the trigger. At the stroke of midnight on Thursday (November 26), Kelsey Nicole decided to bring in the Thanksgiving holiday by sharing her diss track "Bussin Back." It's a response to Megan's Good News intro "Shots Fired" where the leader of the Hot Girls took aim at both Kelsey and Tory. Megan once again claimed that Tory shot her unprovoked and accused Kelsey of taking money from Lanez in order to keep quiet about what happened. On Kelsey's track, she stated that Megan was lying about the incident while she continued to deny that she shot her ex-friend. Megan seemingly responded to the song both on Twitter and Instagram. On the former, she dropped a few crying laughing emojis while on the latter, she shared a video of herself with four of her friends as they sing along to her Good News track "What's New." Megan rapped on the song, "Tеll a hater, 'F*ck you' (Ah) / They keep comin', tellin' me these b*tches mad, what's new?" In the clip, Meg and her friends give the camera the middle finger and in the caption, the Stallion wrote, "GN from thee besties." Stream KelseyNicole's "Bussin Back" here and check out Megan's posts below. View the full article
  4. Just when you thought everyone would come together for the holidays, we have another diss track on our hands. Back in September, Tory Lanez released his Daystar album after a long silence following the July shooting involving Megan Thee Stallion. The Good News rapper fingered Tory as her shooter—an accusation that Lanez has denied since it surfaced. Meanwhile, Megan and her best friend Kelsey Nicole have also been at odds, but the Houston rapper didn't speak about Kelsey until she released her debut studio album. On it, she called out Kelsey on a track titled "Shots Fired" where Megan claimed that her ex-friend took hush-money from Lanez's camp and turned her back on her. For months, Kelsey has been promising that she would one day share her side of the story, and it seems that "Shots Fired" was the final straw. On Thursday (November 26) Kelsey dropped her diss track "Bussin Back" where she spits rhymes targeting Megan Thee Stallion. Kelsey suggests that Megan has been lying to her label about what happened during the shooting incident and stated that the "WAP" rapper has allowed fame to cloud her judgment. Megan seemed to respond to the track with a stream of crying laughing emojis. Stream Kelsey Nicole's "Bussin Back" and share your thoughts. Quotable Lyrics Are you lying to your label Do they really know what happened (Who shot ya) 'Cause you know it wasn't me I was 10 toes down whenever you had beef It's a goddamn shame All you had to do was clear your best friend's name All you had to do is keep it real and stay the same But you switched up on me for the money and the fame View the full article
  5. As millions are preparing for their gluttonous Thanksgiving meals for the food-centered holiday, Juicy J is readying the release of his next album, The Hustle Continues. The Oscar-winning rapper-producer has been in the game for decades and has a number of albums under his belt, and he's not holding back on his next project. The record is stacked with features including looks from Lil Baby, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Megan The Stallion, Ty Dolla $ign, Key Glock, Conway The Machine, A$AP Rocky, Young Dolph, Jay Rock, and two appearances by Logic. Just ahead of the album's release, Juicy J decided to drop one of his Logic tracks as a single and shared "1995." With the track comes an accompanying music video where we see the two artists take over a cabin in the woods as they play a little pool and ride around on ATVs. You won't find a fast rhyming Logic on this one as the vibe is set to those mid-90s rhymes, so stream "1995" and let us know if you're looking forward to The Hustle Continues. Quotable Lyrics My lane different, too sufficient, my brain different I'm ill though, fifteen, mastered the skill, though Since I was working at the supermarket, every week, another new department 'Til I signed my deal with Def Jam in a new apartment View the full article
  6. He's petitioned for his shot at Verzuz all year long, but it's unknown if Timbaland and Swizz Beatz are any closer to getting Juicy J on their series. The hit show was bred under the guise of being a music battle, but it's grown to a "celebration of the culture" as artists come together to not so much try to see who's the best, but more to enjoy the memorable music they've created. In every Verzuz comment section, fans can find tidbits from Juicy J as the rapper-megaproducer continues to ask for his fair shot on stage, but it seems that his requests have fallen on deaf ears. J has suggested that Three 6 Mafia go up against N.W.A., or that as a solo artist he should share the spotlight with the likes of Nas or Dr. Dre. In a recent interview with 97.9 The Box in Houston, Juicy J stated that he now has his eyes keenly set on Pharrell Williams. “I got such a long... I could easily kill somebody in a Verzuz battle," said J. "I could pull up that old Three 6 [Mafia] and pull up my new catalog and smash you with my middle catalog. I mean there’s three decades of music... I think you can you can only play twenty records, I got so many hits." He added, "You know what, I'ma tell you something. A match-up, me and Pharrell. He a artist, I'm a artist, he a producer, and I'm a producer." The radio host slipped in there that there were rumors that T.I. may be matched up with Lil Wayne next, but we'll have to wait on news about that. Watch Juicy J's interview below as he speaks on Verzuz and his Friday release, The Hustle Continues. View the full article
  7. The rumors regarding the relationship status of DaBaby and DaniLeigh have been slowly burning for months. The pair seemed to be the hot new couple on the hip hop scene after internet sleuths pieced together that they were at the same places without openly acknowledging one another. Then, when they finally were snapped by the paparazzi hand-in-hand, they were pegged at hip hop's "It" couple, but things quickly took a turn and it looked as if DaBaby reunited with the mother of his daughter. Still, there were musical connections between the two artists. He reportedly penned lyrics about her on his album and they collaborated for her Movie project on the track "Levi High." DaniLeigh conducted interviews where she made it clear that she wasn't interested in clarifying the status of her relationship with DaBaby to anyone, but it was assumed that the romance was over. However, a brief video shared on social media has fans back at it as they speculate about the two artists' personal lives. The Def Jam singer-rapper shared a video to social media where she showed off bits of her home, and people couldn't help but notice that one of DaBaby's plaques was hanging nicely next to her accomplishments. In the video, she plays her song "Famous" where she sings, "So I'ma just keep hangin' plaques on the wall (Yеah) / Don't bother, don't call (Don't call) / I don't need your love, I don't need your love no more." Check it out below. View the full article
  8. 'Tis the season for another Drake leak. It's unclear if Drizzy will drop of Certfied Lover Boy as a holiday gift to his millions of fans, but in the meantime, it seems that we have yet another leak from the OVO mogul. We've witnessed as Drake tracks have mysteriously surfaced over the years, but there has been an uptick in 2020. Tracks include "Rollin," "Don't Let Me Fall Asleep" with PartyNextDoor, "Stay Down" with Busta Rhymes, a reference track for Dr. Dre's Detox, a collaboration with Roddy Ricch, and most recently in June, "Sound 42/Need Me." On Wednesday (November 25), another unreleased Drake track titled "Come Back To Me" suddenly appeared on various social media platforms. "It's okay, say that you made a mistake / You love me, love just don't fade away / It's okay, okay to miss me," Drake croons on the slow-burning, lovelorn track. Fans have joined together on social media to take their wild guesses as to when this one was recorded and for what album, but we'll leave that for you to decide. We know you're disappointed that we won't be sharing "Come Back To Me" here, but you won't have any trouble finding the song on Twitter or SoundCloud. View the full article
  9. He's known for his outrageous antics just to keep him in the spotlight, so Jake Paul's take on coronavirus isn't surprising. Many social media stars have found themselves in trouble with the law this year as they've hosted mansion parties across the United States. Hundreds, even thousands of guests have attended their clandestine, illegal pandemic get-togethers that have often ended in arrests, fines, or lawsuits. As COVID-19 cases surge across America and beyond, we're entering yet another lockdown phase. That's not something that will stop Jake Paul from living his best potentially super-spreader life because he reportedly believes that the virus is a hoax. Phillip Faraone / Stringer / Getty Images In a bizarre interview with Daily Beat, Jake Paul spoke about how his "medical friends" have told him that masks are ineffective. "People like yourself, or people who go on Twitter and read articles all day, you know, 98 percent of news is fake, so how do we know what’s actually real, and what we’re actually supposed to do?" asked Paul. "I see people on Twitter complaining and being all upset, and saying this person knows this or that, but no one actually knows what to believe. Medical professionals have also said that masks do absolutely nothing to prevent the spread of coronavirus," he continued. The interviewer told him that wasn't true, and that's when Paul seemed to come unhinged. "Yes they have. Yes they have. You’re arrogant. You’re very arrogant for saying that they haven’t said that," Paul replied. "I’m referring to dozens and dozens of my medical friends—doctors, people with PhDs—who say masks do absolutely nothing to stop the spread of coronavirus... I’m not here to have a debate with you about it, I’m just telling you what I’ve been told." He then told the writer that they needed to open their mind "as someone who controls media, and influences a lot of what people read and say and breathe and do." Jake Paul also condemned celebrities for virtue-signaling about the virus while secretly attending no-mask parties. [via] View the full article
  10. The Grammys discussions have only intensified as the hours tick by, and Drake is sharing a few thoughts about how he feels regarding the snubbed artists. Yesterday (November 24), The Recording Academy shared the nominations for the 2021 Grammy Awards, and almost immediately social media lit up with criticisms from not only fans, but musicians. There were notable exclusions that have continued to make headlines, and Drake shared that as a culture, we need to stop leaning on award shows such as these for validation. John Phillips / Stringer / Getty Images "I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artists that exist now and the ones that come after," penned the rapper. "It's like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just can't change their ways." "The other day I said @theweeknd was a lock for either album or song of the year along with countless other reasonable assumptions and it just never goes that way," Drake continued. "This is a great time for somebody to start something new that we can build up over time and pass on to the generations to come." He then named Lil Baby, Pop Smoke, PartyNextDooor, and Popcaan as just a few artists who deserved more credit. Some people pointed out that there are award shows like the BET Awards, the BET Hip Hop Awards, and the Soul Train Awards that cater to rap, hip hop, and R&B music, but we'll just have to wait and see if Drake "builds up" something for the culture in the future. In the meantime, we'll all continue to impatiently wait for Certified Lover Boy's release. Instagram Instagram View the full article
  11. If there's one thing capable of bringing the people together, it's the return of mixtape Lil Wayne. As it happens, it's about that time for his triumphant return, with Weezy confirming that his anticipated No Ceilings 3 would be arriving in full glory on Friday, November 27th. With DJ Khaled set to handle hosting responsibilities, it's sure to be an appropriately large-scale affair, a fact already evidenced by a few promising snippets -- including one that finds Young Money reuniting in a refreshing blast from the past. Ethan Miller/Getty Images And while some fans were admittedly annoyed with Lil Wayne following his support of Donald Trump, who ultimately went on to lose to Joe Biden in the recent election, it would appear that all has been more or less forgiven. After all, Mixtape Wayne doesn't come around too often, and when he does, you can bet he's liable to snap. And few can do so in such a compelling fashion as Weezy, a frequent contender for the coveted best rapper alive position. Honestly, his mixtapes played a prominent role in getting him there in the first place, so it should be interesting to see how No Ceilings 3 adds to the conversation. With the project only a few days away, we've collected some of the early reactions to the big reveal. Clearly, Lil Wayne can still get the people going, and don't be surprised to see Weezy topping all the trending topics when Friday and No Ceilings 3 roll around. Will you be tuning in?

  12. Young Nudy has been quietly building one of the consistent catalogs in the game, managing to stay compelling without sacrificing his fondness for strange and whimsical production. Most recently, the Atlanta rapper came through with Anyways, a sixteen-track effort that picked up where 2019's back-to-back barrage of Sli'merre and Faded In The Booth left off. Scott Dudelson/Getty Images And while he's been slightly active in recent memory, having dropped off new singles like the Metro Boomin-laced "Vice City," the hard-hitting "Never," and the strange and off-kilter "All White," many have wondered Nudy was looking to end the year with another new album. After all, he's frequently made a habit of dropping two projects in a single year, and this flurry of singles seemed to indicate that Nudy has indeed been cooking up something truly diabolical. Lo and behold, it would appear that a possible name has arisen. One that seems in keeping with his mischievous and downright endearing brand of villainy. Responding to fanart depicting four distinct eras of Young Nudy, he proceeded to tease that Dr. Evil would be the most dominant of them all. A welcome homage to the classic Mike Myers character who originally made his debut in the 1997 comedy Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery. While it's unclear as to which of Dr. Evil's qualities spoke to Nudy on a personal level, perhaps we'll have a better idea whenver his next project rolls around. Will you be checking it out?

  13. Good news (pun intended), Megan Thee Stallion released her album, Good News,last week, and with it, a viral music video to contend with her last Internet sensation, "WAP." The star-studded video for her latest single, "Body" has appearances by Jordyn Woods, Blac Chyna, and Taraji P. Henson. But what really caught everyone's attention was the intense, thigh-quaking choreography. It was only a matter of time before TikTokers got their hands on it and turned it into a major trend. Unsurprisingly, everyone and their mothers have now recorded themselves attempting the "Body" dance challenge, and let's just say, it is not for the weak. I digress. The video starts off with Meg sporting a scandalous, sheer, black unitard, black lipstick, and high heels that look impossible to walk in, let alone dance in. As the video progresses, more dancers are added to the mix. The one minute mark is where things really start to escalate though — outfit changes, celebrity cameos, and of course, the aforementioned synchronized choreography that TikTok can't seem to get enough of. The whole thing is — like her album — a masterpiece. It's really no wonder it went viral. Undoubtedly, she is on a roll right now. With the release of her new album, having her music video go viral, launching her own Fashion Nova line, getting texts from Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and yesterday's Grammy nomination, hats off to Hot Girl Meg. She is a force to be reckoned with. View the full article
  14. Playboi Carti truly is a different breed, a rare sort of artist that only comes around once in a generation. For one, it's difficult to ascertain whether a portion of his fanbase listens to his music ironically or with unyielding sincerity. Two, his output tends to receive universal acclaim, with some even going so far as to deem him the avant-garde GOAT. And three, people seem to be enamored with his baby-like cadence, to the point where songs like the lost "Pissy Pamper" become cult classics as a direct result of it. Steven Ferdman/Getty Images Regardless of how you might feel about the Die Lit auteur, whether you deem him the scourge of modern rap music or the chosen one set to usher in a new renaissance, it's impossible to deny the je ne sais quois surrounding Playboi Carti and his surefire means of moving the masses. And with the hype for his upcoming album Whole Lotta Red reaching a feverish pitch, Carti has done his part to stir the pot even further with a flurry of typically cryptic social media behavior. "LOVE ME NOW NOT WH3N IM DEAD," he Tweets, alongside a black-and-white picture. Shortly thereafter, he made a point to extend a greeting to both Post Malone and Pharrell, which naturally sparked further anticipation for his next move. It's hard not to view anything Carti does as a clue of sorts, so with that in mind, consider the possibility of both parties being involved with Whole Lotta Red to some degree. At this rate, perhaps we won't have to wait much longer for a proper answer. The only question is -- will you be tuning in? View the full article
  15. The Cool Kids MC, Detroit rapper, Chuck Inglish, just dropped his first single since signing with Warner Chappell Music, "Driver" featuring Ye Ali, who released his last project, Ye & Chill, back in 2018. You might call this a comeback, since it's the first track we've heard from Inglish in three years, aside from the brief appearance he made on "Pots and Pans" Boldy James, which featured The Cool Kids and Shorty K. Evidently, it was worth the wait. The beat itself gives off clear R&B and old school funk vibes — that, in combination with Inglish and Ali's smooth, modern flow made for the perfect recipe. Even some of the references peppered into the lyrics let listeners know what and who inspired this song. Keep your eyes peeled in the upcoming months, because if this is any indication, we're in for a lot more surprises from Chuck Inglish — at least we hope so. Quotable Lyrics: I just seen Bruh Man at the Whitney Houston concert On them triple gold spokes Rollin’ slow like old folks Dennis Edwards coke jaw Candy Lincoln Towncar View the full article
  16. By now, much has been made about The Weeknd's Grammy snub(s), whereupon neither "Blinding Lights" nor his After Hours album were recognized by the Recording Academy. In fact, The Weeknd actively took to Twitter to retaliate against the slight, accusing the organization of corruption among other unsavory claims. And while the fans were quick to mobilize behind the Canadian artist, one of his biggest votes of support arrived by way of Sir Elton John, who previously compared The Weeknd to the late, great Prince. Kevin Winter/Getty Images "In my humble opinion," prefaces Elton John, one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters in modern history, mind you. "'Blinding Lights' song of the year, record of the year." A massive co-sign, and one that should go a long way in dulling the sting of rejection The Weeknd is currently nursing. And rightfully so, given the nature of his pointed callout of the Grammys organization. And while it's likely that the rift between The Weeknd and The Recording Academy will take time to fully heal, it's still nice to see one of music's most iconic figures showing his support. Though The Weeknd isn't exactly hip-hop per se, this latest co-sign is but one of many instances that Elton John has pledged allegiance to the culture. His longtime friendship with Eminem is no secret. In 2006, he collaborated with Timbaland on the Shock Value album closer "2 Man Show." He provided vocals and piano on Kanye West's "All Of The Lights," and showed major love to Young Thug for his "Rocket Man" sampling "High." He also recently connected with Future in the studio, among other notable rap co-signs. Suffice it to say, Sir Elton is no stranger to the rap game. View the full article
  17. It's 42 Dugg's birthday and he's celebrating in a major way, dropping his latest single, titled "Free Me". The Detroit-based rapper has been one of the biggest names in rap over the last year, steadily rising under the tutelage of Yo Gotti and Lil Baby. Alongside Baby, he's behind one of the year's biggest songs, the hard-powered "We Paid". In the last few weeks, Dugg has been trickling out new music, dropping two singles ahead of his upcoming project. "Free Merey" introduced the new chapter for 42 Dugg, who continued his buzz with "Free Woo". Those two songs are dedicated to his incarcerated friends and will be included on the new project. He's also dealt with his fair share of legal issues, getting locked up (and actually learning to rap in solitary confinement!) for six years. With that, "Free Me", the latest record from 42 Dugg, was born. The track arrives on Dugg's twenty-sixth birthday and it serves as the perfect gift from him to all of us. Listen to the Antbeatz-produced single below. Quotable Lyrics: I'm from the Eastside, look up the street signs, we made it When Reecе died, I seen them real n***as was fakin' And I keep fivе hunnid in small bills for Baby Never turn my back on my brother, momma, I love you Half a million on a house, Val took care of me Real n***as winnin', bitch, so I took care of the streets View the full article

  19. Those familiar with the Detroit hip-hop scene probably know the name Marv Won, lyrically deadly member of the Fat Killahz and a prominent name in the battle rap circuit. Some eagle-eyed viewers may even remember him from an 8 Mile bonus feature battle, during which he went head to head with Eminem in a tilt that has since garnered half-a-million YouTube views. In fact, Marv recently held it down with an appearance on Math Hoffa's My Expert Opinion podcast, where he discussed his battle with Slim Shady at length. "Everybody that was an extra in that movie was a rapper in the city of Detroit," explains Marv. From there, his longtime collaborator Quest Mcody (also appearing on the podcast) added that "people who say that Em don't do shit or hasn't done shit for the city outside of the philantrophy that isn't promoted, I know for a fact that as a teenager I got paid a lot of money per hour to do absolutely nothing but stand around and meet some of the greatest rappers in the world." "At that point, we were rowdy," explains Marv. "What the director decided, was he was going to do a contest. We gon' pick three people to come up here and pantomime scenes. [Em] was going to rap, and it was going to be some b-roll." Though he was originally hesitant to sign up, Marv's manager told him to sign up and try to land the position. "I was one of the n***as that made it to the finals. So they bring [Em] in, and they like alright, just spit a verse." "It got more of a reaction than he wanted," reflects Marv. "What people don't know is he was rapping when the beat came on, but the mic was off. So the beat dropped, and he's rapping but nobody hears it. And I'm trying not to break character, like "for real?" And I'll never forget, he's flipping his mic, and he's like I got something for your fat ass, Marv. And he raps, and I'm like you can't let me have this moment?" "He raps, I beat him," says Marv, his nonchalance sparking laughter throughout the room. "That's my man. But what I'll say, is that shit literally changed my life. Not even on a money standpoint, but the fact that when that DVD dropped, they used that scene to sell DVDs. Up until that point, my mom thought I was wasting my time. Honestly, I had been all these places but it didn't resonate. Until she's looking at Entertainment Tonight and they're playing the scene....I'm forever indebted, nobody can say anything bad about that man to me. That's my actual man." And to make it even better, Em actually ended up asking Marv for a rematch during a party at the Slim Shady manor. For those who might not know, Marv Won is a formidable battle rapper in his own right. In the early millennium, he and Quest McCody held it down in the World Rap Championships, representing Detroit all the way to the semi-finals, where they were eliminated by the eventual champions TheSaurus and Illmaculate. To this day, Marv has been a fixture on the battle circuit, and those who appreciate that particular side of the culture will likely hold his opinion in high esteem. Be sure to check out Marv and Quest chop it up with Math Hoffa on My Expert Opinion, a must-watch if you're looking for some insight into the underground. View the full article
  20. There have been rumblings that Lil Wayne could be gearing up for one last full-length release before the end of the year and, after today's major reveal by DJ Khaled, those rumors have been confirmed. No Ceilings 3 is officially on the way. Lil Wayne previously announced that he was working on the latest addition to his popular mixtape series, and it's looking like his fans won't need to wait too long to listen to it. The DatPiff exclusive video, which was shared by DJ Khaled, shows snippets of songs performed by Lil Wayne and his longtime collaborator Drake, as well as a remix of "We Paid", the anthem released this year by Lil Baby and 42 Dugg. Not long after the trailer came out, Weezy F caught up with Complex to deliver some news regarding the tape's release. The publication is confirming that No Ceilings 3 will be out this week on Friday, November 27. It will be exclusive to DatPiff. "The mixtape game seemed to be a dying art and since I’m one of the pioneers of the craft, and it played such a big part in my career, I felt it was only right to resurrect it," said the legend in a statement. "Also, it’s a lot of songs out here I wanted to kill my way!" There will be three cover artworks for the project, with one designed by HustleGrl, who designed the first No Ceilings tape's cover. Check out all three below.

  21. Following the release of her latest album, Good Newslast week, and her much-deserved Grammy nominations yesterday, Megan Thee Stallion revealed to Ebro in the Morning that her diss track "Shots Fired," directed at Tory Lanez, was "ready to go" just one day after Tory allegedly fired shots at her. "It comes a time where it gets hard to be the bigger person sometimes," she began. "And at the end of the day, I can't just keep letting people walk all over me." Cassidy Sparrow/Getty Images "I can't keep letting people take these jabs at me and I'm not gon' say nothing. That's just not in my nature," she went on. "When you know you're right and you know you have nothing to prove, you really don't have to give a response. "But once you made it rap beef, you put it on wax, now I gotta say something. I really had the song all ready but I was like, you know what, let me just save it for the album." She revealed that she considered dropping the track right after the incident, but then opted to wait until she had cooled down. "Because it was ready to go the next day. I was like, you know what, let's be calm. Let's be patient. Let's see how this plays out and let me just wait and put it on my album," she said. [via] Y'all muthafuckas so confused.

  24. One week after releasing his debut album Welcome to O'Block, King Von was gunned down in front of an Atlanta hookah bar. The shocking death of the rising Chicago rapper continues to stun the rap community as Von's loved ones grieve his death and celebrate his life. As the legal system attempts to piece together what happened the evening King Von was murdered in hopes of bringing justice in his case, Von's girlfriend, Asian Doll, continues to take to her social media accounts to memorialize the man that she loved. Last week, Asian Doll, or Asian Da Brat, shared that she had plans to get King Von tattooed on her face, but it looks as if she opted to get ink elsewhere. The rapper shared her latest bit of body art to her Instagram Story and Twitter account, and she's chosen to get an impressive portrait of her late boyfriend tattooed on the back of her hand. Asian Doll shared a video that showed her new tattoo in detail and she's excited to carry Von with her for the rest of her life. "Know How We Rocking DAYVON," she wrote in the caption to her tweet. She also added that people were already criticizing her tattoo prior to it being completed. "My tattoo so raw I ain’t even finished & mfs already haten but soon as my sh*t get finished they finna be d*ck riding." Check out videos of Asian Doll's new ink and let us know what you think.

  25. Just when you thought the OnlyFans hype has dissipated, another celebrity adds their name to the list of participants. B. Simone knows how to hustle as she has her own beauty brand as well as her music and comedy careers, so it was only a matter of time before she brought in dough from OnlyFans. She joins names like Amber Rose, Chris Brown, Tyga, Rubi Rose, LisaRaye McCoy, Michael B. Jordan, Swae LEe, Cardi B, Jordyn Woods, and dozens of others who have launched pages and raked in big bucks through the fan-friendly—and often adult—site. Instagram B. Simone made the announcement on her Instagram Story as she shared a black and white photo of herself where it looked as if she was wearing only her underwear while text covered her breasts. She gave viewers instructions on how they could access her OF, but it's unclear what subscribers can expect. Earlier this year, B. Simone was entangled in controversy after she was accused of plagiarizing bloggers to create her manifestation book. After going viral, she quickly apologized for the mix-up, but it doesn't seem like people have let that scandal go because they had quite a bit to say about it after learning she'd launched an OF.
