  1. We just saw her share intimate details of her Ruff Ryders rise, and now Eve is sitting down to talk more about her personal and professional life. This weekend, Eve will be featured on Uncensored as she discusses what marriage has been like with a blended family in England as well as some of the accomplishments and pitfalls of her career. In the early 2000s, from 2003 to 2006, Eve starred in her own self-titled sitcom on the UPN network—a show that even had a theme song performed by Missy Elliott. While discussing her hit series on Uncensored, the rapper shared that the show's cancelation may have had much to do with Eve's propensity to party and show up to set late. Peter Kramer / Staff / Getty Images “Having my own sitcom was everything... it was pressure, it was fun, it was stressful, it was amazing," the rapper said. "I was the youngest at the time of the cast, and a lot of them were just getting married, just buying their first house or like, just having babies. I was still going to the club trying to get to set at 9:00 a.m. Trying to get to a table read, which was...don’t do that, ever." Eve said she'd been used to the rap star lifestyle on the road, performing shows, and going club hopping. It was a struggle for her to adjust from that lifestyle to one of a television actress. "When the show ended, it was definitely heartbreaking because at that time. We had done three seasons and we were family at this point," said Eve. "I do believe a lot of it had to do with the fact that I was trying to kinda straddle both sides of my life. Still trying to hold on to kinda hanging out. And I was late a lot. That’s not cool. You know, I do think a lot of it had to do with my actions at that time, and I do think about it sometimes. When I look back on it, I’m like, wow. I don’t believe in regrets, but that is one time in my life where I feel like I wish I would have taken it a little more seriously than I did." Watch the clip of Eve's appearance on Uncensored below.

  2. When Steve Nash was hired as the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, fans and pundits were fairly shocked. No one even knew that Nash was a name being considered for the job. After all, he has no prior head coaching experience, which makes him a bit of a wild card as far as candidates go. Regardless, he has a huge task ahead of him as he will now get to coach two of the best players in the league: Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. In a recent interview via Nets Daily, Nash spoke out about his plans for KD and Kyrie and how he hopes to create the ideal rotations. Based on his comments, it's clear Nash is all about versatility. Maddie Meyer/Getty Images “Ky is a weapon off the ball. Kevin can play all five positions and I plan to use him in all five positions,” Nash said. “(Me and Kyrie) have had a relationship since his rookie year. It’s something I’m looking to develop. Obviously, I have a much more developed and longer history with Kevin, but with Ky, I’m excited. He’s one of my favorite players. He’s kind of a savant with the basketball. But also to get to know him off the court.” It remains to be seen when the 2020-2021 season will officially begin, which means Nash will have quite a bit of time to implement his systems. Either way, his reign as Nets coach is going to be very interesting. [Via] View the full article
  3. Don't expect to see Jeezy making any appearances on Kanye West's campaign trail. The Yeezy mogul has been turning heads left and right as he's stolen attention in multiple circles. His presidential bid for America's 2020 election has been fraught with controversies as states have removed or refused to include him on their ballots. Then, Kanye West publicly declared war on Sony Music and Universal Music Group over their handling of artists' contracts, and this was before he was faced with a 12-hour Twitter ban for posting a journalist's phone number while calling him a White supremacist. Paras Griffin / Stringer / Getty Images His methods may be unorthodox, but many people have continued to support Ye as he progresses professionally and politically. Pertaining to the latter, Jeezy told Deadline that he's decided to endorse the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris presidential ticket, suggesting that while he respects Kanye, he doesn't believe the rapper's petition for president is a serious one. “I think he’s a great artist, but I don’t think he needs to be nobody’s president," said Jeezy. "Bless his heart if he feels he can do the job, but right now is not the time. This is real, people are dying. This ain’t entertainment, and we love Kanye dearly, but this is not the time for that. This is real. We need help. We need change.” Relating to Biden, Jeezy said he is enthused that the presidential nominee is opening to discussing the grievances of the Black community. “There’s so many things wrong that nobody’s going to be able to fix it all in one swipe, but at least somebody is willing to hear it out and understand what we are going through as Black men,” Jeezy added. “Being a black man in America is definitely a hard job right now. So anyone who is going to come and try to help us with that burden, I have to take the time to hear them out, see what their plan is and see how they are going to go about these things.” [via] View the full article
  4. LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are about to take on the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals, and fans are excited to see the matchup play out. For now, it's clear that the Lakers are the favorites to take the series, although the Nuggets have proven they are a formidable foe. They recently came back from down 3-1 against the Clippers, to win their second-round series. Now, James and company will have to face that same resiliency. While speaking to Clutch Points reporter Tomer Azarly, LeBron spoke about the Clippers loss and whether or not he wanted to play them in the Conference Final. James noted that he didn't feel like there was a score to settle and that he is happy to play against anyone. LeBron also explained what he thought about the Clippers' Game 7 collapse and how he approached watching the game. “I really don’t have a comment about it,” James said. “I was just sitting back and watching the game from a fan’s perspective, watched big shots be made, big plays be made, missed shots, things of that nature, but also I was a scout. Scouting both teams at the same team. I was trying to get as many log-in minutes for myself scouting both teams at the same time because we knew Game 7 would decide who we’d play. That was kind of my mindset.” Regardless of who the Lakers have to play next, it's clear they have a huge opportunity to go out and win a title. View the full article
  5. Restless fans are taking matters into their own hands in the demand for Savage Mode 2. There were rumors that the sequel to the 2016 collaborative mixtape involving 21 Savage and Metro Boomin would arrive back in March, but soon, the world was hit with a global pandemic and the project didn't arrive. By May, fans were growing tired of the delay so on Instagram Live, 21 Savage gave an update as to why Savage Mode 2 hadn't yet hit streaming services. “You know, I gotta perfect my sh*t. This sh*t take time," he reportedly stated months ago. "I be putting a lot of hard work into my sh*t. I ain't finna drop anything. My sh*t gotta be hard. So, it’s gonna take me a little bit longer. We working. I got a lot of other sh*t going on in my life too, that I gotta balance, make all this sh*t work. But I promise you I’m working. It’s finna drop. I promise, it’s on the way.” On Thursday (September 17), people began sharing unsubstantiated information that Savage Mode 2 would arrive next week. At the same time, a petition was launched on Change.org for the two artists to speed up the process and drop their joint record. There are already over 15K signatures and counting as the number increases by the minute, so it's clear that fans aren't messing around when it comes to receiving what's expected to be a beast of a project from 21 Savage and Metro Boomin. Are you ready for Savage Mode 2? View the full article
  6. While we might not get to celebrate Halloween as normal this year, it's impossible to forget that the Holiday is right around the corner. The weather is starting to get colder and the rain has been more frequent, which means the Fall is upon us. Halloween is always the centerpiece of Fall, which is then proceeded by Thanksgiving and eventually, Christmas. With Halloween approaching, numerous brands are looking to capitalize, especially sneaker companies who want to create some scary-themed shoes. Nike is pulling all of the stops for their Halloween output, as seen on this Nike Air Max 95 which can be found below, While this isn't an official collab, it's quite clear that the colorway is inspired by the wardrobe of the infamous Freddy Krueger. The upper contains burgundy and khaki mesh with some beige suede at the toe box. Meanwhile, the back heel has some red blood drip graphics which helps add to the overall horror theme of the shoe. As of right now, a release date has yet to be determined, so stay tuned for any updates as we will be sure to bring you all of the latest information.

  7. Months ago, news spread that hip hop legend Biz Markie was battling an illness. There were reports that the "Just a Friend" rapper had been hospitalized for weeks, causing fans to join together virtually to wish Biz Markie well. For years, Biz has struggled with diabetes and he's previously stated that there was a time that things became so severe that doctors believed that his foot needed to be amputated. As he's attempted to get his health in check over the years, there have still been pitfalls in his journey. This week, rumors began to circulate that Biz Markie had fallen into a coma. The gossip regarding his alleged dire condition caused panic within the music world, but it's being reported by HipHopDX that Biz is alert and doing well as his team has confirmed that Biz Markie is not in a coma. Because the rapper hasn't updated his Instagram in months or shared the status of his recovery, people were quick to believe the gossip. Markie's recent hospitalization had nothing to do with the COVID-19 crisis and his rep stated “he is receiving the best care from an amazing team of medical professionals and we remain positive about the outcome" for the treatment of his type 2 diabetes.

  8. If it were up to Rick Ross, righting the wrongs of injustice would be in the hands of the people. The rap mogul released the powerful music video for his single "Pinned to the Cross" featuring singer Finn Matthews, and the visual struck a chord as it called attention to a controversy that currently plagues the political climate. Artistically, Rick Ross gave a nod to Breonna Taylor, the young woman who was killed at home while in bed after police issued a no-knock warrant on her residence. There has been a call for the officers responsible for the slaying to be held accountable, but it doesn't seem as if the legal system will prosecute. In the "Pinned to the Cross" visual, Ross shows a team of young, Black militants who storm a police officer's home, pin him to the ground with a knee to the back of his neck a la George Floyd, and light his house on fire. The clip ends with Ross and the destructive crew standing in front of the blazing house as they hold their Black Power fists in the sky. Watch Rozay's latest music video and let us know what you think about the message. View the full article
  9. If you've been a longtime fan of LeBron James, then you probably remember his days with the Miami Heat quite fondly. This was when he was finally able to win himself an NBA title, while freeing himself from all of the slander he used to get in the past. The time period was significant in terms of his Nike sneaker output, as well, since this is when he brought out some of his most beloved models. In 2020, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Nike LeBron 7, and at the end of this year, the LeBron 8 will be celebrating its coveted 10th birthday as well. With this in mind, it has been reported that Nike will be releasing numerous LeBron 8 retros through 2021 and fans are excited. Recently, an account on Instagram called Foamkicks got their hands on a pair of the Retro LeBron and as you can see in the photo below, we have ourselves a red colorway. So far, there is no word on which colorway this is a reference to, however, it's surely proof that the LeBron 8 is, indeed, on its way back to the market. As of right now, there is no word on an exact release date, so stay tuned for updates as we will be sure to bring them to you. Image via Foamkicks View the full article
  10. Anthony Davis has been one of the best defensive players in the NBA all season long, and this has certainly extended well into the bubble. Throughout the first two rounds of the NBA playoffs, Davis has been a dynamic player for the Los Angeles Lakers and when paired up with LeBron James, they can truly do no wrong. Now, Davis and company will be taking on the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals, and perhaps Davis' biggest challenge is on the horizon. Davis will now have to guard the likes of Nikola Jokic who is easily one of the best players in the entire league, regardless of position. He was able to impose his will on the Clippers in the second round, and he'll be looking to do the same to the Lakers. Even Davis couldn't help but acknowledge just how good Jokic is. “He’s a tough guy to guard,” Davis said. “(He’s) able to shoot the ball, he can pass extremely well. He can go in the post. There are a lot of ways he can beat you.” Regardless of Jokic and Jamal Murray, the Lakers are favored to win the series and for good reason. While it won't be a walk in the park, it's clear the Lakers are destined to go to the Finals. View the full article

  13. It looks like Kanye West isn't the only artist looking to air out their grievances with their label. Despite being shunned by Twitter for sharing the personal information of a Forbes journalist, Kanye West has received support from his fellow artists as it pertains to his contract complaints against Universal Music Group and Sony Music. Trippie Redd shared a video saying that he agrees with everything the Yeezy mogul has been saying in his tweets and now Logic is co-signing West's concerns, as well. Nicholas Hunt / Staff / Getty Images Earlier today, Ye tweeted, "90% of the record contracts on the planet are still on a royalty A standard record deal is a trap to NEVER have you recoup, and there’s all these hidden costs like the 'distribution fees' many labels put in their contracts to make even more money off our work without even trying." Logic retweeted this message and added that he had plans to release a remix to "Perfect," a track on his final album No Pressure, but his label, Def Jam, isn't trying to cough up the cash to pay Lil Wayne for the feature. Def Jam's parent company is Universal Music Group. "I feel you, Def Jam ain’t tryin a pay @LilTunechi his fee so I guess the perfect remix aint coming out," Logic wrote. "Owe a few of my folks they money honestly." We'll just have to wait and see if this one ever hits streaming services. View the full article
  14. Many artists in the Hip Hop and R&B worlds have adopted healthier lifestyles as they've gravitated to cleaner, vegan or vegetarian diets. Jermaine Dupri, Andre 3000, Janet Jackson, YG, RZA, and many others have made the shift, and it looks as if NLE Choppa has joined the movement. The young rapper has taken to his social media accounts to preach on the importance of a healthier lifestyle, and he's even shown off his budding garden where he plans to grow his own food. Because of his new outlook, NLE Choppa has also spoken out against Travis Scott's McDonald's meal, urging consumers not to purchase the coveted burger. The outrage has caused Jack Harlow to move in with a few jokes. Carmen Mandato / Stringer / Getty Images On Instagram, Jack Harlow was taking a few questions from his fans over on his Stories. Someone asked him if he had tried Travis Scott's McDonald's meal and the XXL Freshman couldn't help but tease Choppa just a bit. "I been wanting to go but yesterday I heard NLE Chakra say that they use human meat and it was enough to make me say hmmmm i might not go." "NLE Chakra" hasn't responded to the playful jab just yet. Even without Jack Harlow's support, it's been reported that McDonald's has been faced with a food shortage due to the popularity of their Cactus Jack meals. View the full article
  15. Throughout her career, questions floated regarding Beyoncé's family members carrying the last name, "Beyincé." Many people just assumed that Tina Knowles-Lawson must have really liked the look of their surname when naming the megastar, but Beyoncé and Solange's mother revealed that her daughter's first name is her maiden name. It's a moniker that she grew up disliking, but later learned to accept. Dimitrios Kambouris / Staff / Getty Images "A lot of people don't know that Beyoncé is my last name. I'’s my maiden name," she said. "My name was Celestine Beyoncé, which at that time was not a cool thing to have that weird name. I wanted my name to be Linda Smith because those were the cool names." That's not all; the last name "Beyincé" exists due to a clerical error that occurred when Tina's brother was born. Authorities refused to change it. "I think me and my brother Skip were the only two that had B-E-Y-O-N-C-E," said Tina. She asked her mother why she didn't just get it changed to the correct spelling and her mother told her: "'I did one time... I was told be happy that you're getting a birth certificate because, at one time, Black people didn't get birth certificates.'" So, Beyincé it was for one of her siblings and his children. No one seems to have a problem with it all these years, and generations, later. [via] View the full article
  16. He was having a hard time hearing the naysayers on his track "Said Sum," so he called on a few of his rap star friends to bring some clarity to the remix. Moneybagg Yo closed out the month of June by sharing his viral hit single "Said Sum," and now he's returned with the updated version featuring City Girls and DaBaby. When the track was first released, there were a few lyrics that caused a bit of a stir as the rapper was accused of slick-dissing his fellow celebrities—specifically his girlfriend Ari Fletcher's ex, Gervonta Davis. Moneybagg never spoke on the controversy, but "Said Sum" has become a social media phrase where people send sub shots to foes they may be beefing with. On the remix, DaBaby gives a smooth verse about enjoying his come up while the City Girls stayed true to their brand and boasted about relishing in the finer things in life. Check it out and let us know what you think. Quotable Lyrics I hop out the backseat just like a boss I two-tone the Maybach My seats Ronald Reagan It came wit the pillow, I came from the pavement Thought somebody said I ain't made it View the full article
  17. We're days away from receiving Alicia Keys's self-titled album, so it's only fitting that the celebrated singer shares the tracklist to her project. The world was set to receive ALICIA earlier this year, but after we were hit with a global pandemic, the project was delayed along with many others. As time moved forward, it was unclear when and if ALICIA would arrive in 2020, but Alicia Keys continued to share new music from the unreleased album, leaving many hopeful of its arrival. Terry Wyatt / Stringer / Getty Images On Friday (September 18), ALICIA will finally hit streaming services and today (September 16), Keys revealed that the record will have 15 tracks with a handful of impressive additions. We've already received singles including "Love Looks Better" and "So Done" featuring Khalid, but Keys is mixing things up as far as her features are concerned. Expect to hear Sampha, Diamond Platnumz, Snoh Aalegra, Tierra Whack, Miguel, Khalid, and Jill Scott on the singer's seventh studio album. Fans can also expect news of Keys's rescheduled tour dates sometime soon, as she derailed those plans because of the pandemic, as well. Earlier this year, a press released described the tour as “a special multi-media, artistic experience… A mediation on love and life, the show will be a true celebration, filled with magnetic energy that only live music can create.” Check out the tracklist below and let us know if you're looking forward to hearing ALICIA.

  18. The clock is ticking down to the arrival of Nicki Minaj's bundle of joy and the Barbz are making sure that the world doesn't forget about it. Nicki Minaj announced her pregnancy months ago amid gossip about the rapper expecting her first child with husband Kenneth Petty. After assisting Tekashi 6ix9ine with his "Trollz" single, Nicki dipped out of the public eye to take care of herself during this delicate time, but that doesn't mean that her fans aren't receiving some Nicki news from her loved ones. Minaj's mother Carol Maraj shared her excitement about becoming a grandmother to Nicki's little one. Carol took to Instagram to repost her a picture from her daughter's pregnancy photoshoot along with a sweet message that touched the hearts of readers. "Is it too late to post a #WCW? Thank you @david_lachapelle for capturing my heart on the outside," Maraj wrote in the caption to the photo. "Onika has always been so nurturing , caring, loving, bold, beautiful, God-fearing and selfless... motherhood already looks beautiful on you!" The last line made some believe that Nicki may have already given birth, but we'll all just have to wait for the rapper's big reveal—if it happens at all. Check out Carol Maraj's post below.

  19. While Blac Chyna is inevitably bound to appear in the news on frequent occasions, some may be relieved to see that this time, it’s within a rather pleasant context. The reality star and entrepreneur retained public interest with her participation in a recent installation of SiriusXM’s Hip Hop Nation, where she expressed pride in being a single parent, independent of external funding from her ex, Rob Kardashian. Said Chyna, “Just honestly taking care of my kids by myself as a single parent, but no child support. So that’s my biggest flex.” In addition to having a three-year-old daughter, Dream, with Rob, Chyna also has a seven-year-old son, King Cairo, from Tyga. Despite the complicated nature of her family structure, she has characterized interaction with loved ones as a healthy experience, stating “Coparenting is actually really good.” Amy Sussman/Getty Images She explained, “They [Tyga and Kardashian] do give me that break so I can rejuvenate myself as a woman and just get back focus. Or, if I have to do something, it just gives me that leeway. So, that’s, I think, key.” Her introspection seems to reflect a new leaf of less conflict, as she continues to be further removed from times of seeking a restraining order against Kardashian and rather publicly fighting with Kylie Jenner over both having dated Tyga.

  20. Flaunting her lavish lifestyle is an intricate part of her brand, but it's believed that Kim Kardashian's social media posts may have aided in the Paris robbery back in 2016. It was then that the reality star was handcuffed, held at gunpoint, and robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry. Kanye West rescheduled his Saint Pablo Tour dates to spend time with his wife, and since that time, there have been numerous theories as to how and why Kim was located and targeted. Frazer Harrison / Staff / Getty Images The Sun reports that legal documents include statements from the "mastermind" involved in the robbery who faults Kim Kardashian for being too open on social media. Alleged career criminal Aomar Ait Khedache reportedly called Kardashian an "easy target" because she would post about where she was and who she was with online. The 64-year-old said the 2016 robbery was an "internet giveaway" because all he and his crew had to do was look at her social media posts. "The jewels were shown on the internet, explaining that she did not wear fake jewels," Ait Khedache reportedly stated. He also noted that she publicized "the timing of her arrival in France" and added that "you just needed to look at the internet to know everything." He and his gang of alleged thieves were able to access Kim Kardashian after her bodyguard left her alone in her hotel room to accompany her sisters to a local nightclub. The group of burglars took off with expensive jewelry items, including sentimental pieces that Kanye gifted his wife. Surveillance footage helped identify and track down the thieves, and DNA evidence tied them to the case. "Ait Khedache has told police the gang melted down and sold off most of the stolen jewelry, but managed to sell Kardashian’s engagement ring, which has never been recovered," The Sun reported.

  21. Some things are just distinctly American, like Apple Pie, 90’s rap, and….anti-maskers apparently? That at least seems to be the case with the latest COVID-19 story out of Florida. As the official U.S. death toll approaches 200K, with projected deaths by January 1st, 2020 set at over 400K, some people have reached a breaking point. Although admittedly, it seems people have reached some diametrically opposed breaking points. Whereas Democrat-led states are typically at the forefront of retaining social distancing requisites, others have decided to showcase their unrest by opposing the common requirement to wear face masks in public. The viral clip from a Florida Target shows a group of roughly a dozen people walking through the store without masks, with some of them yelling “take off your masks!” and “we’re not gonna take it anymore!”. The clip currently holds over 14.8 million views and has led to Target trending on Twitter. The participants in the protest were readily criticized on Twitter for their actions, with celebrities and common at-home viewers alike referring to them as “assholes,” “maskholes” “dipshits”, and more for not abiding by Target’s requirement that guests wear masks. While some have floated a federal mask mandate, President Trump has not expressed ample interest in the subject. He has been criticized for responses ranging from indifference to masks, to leading overall contempt among conservatives against mandates requiring them. Despite protests, the CDC still recommends wearing a mask and social distancing while in public in order to slow the spread of Coronavirus in America, which has accounted for roughly 25% percent of all COVID-19 deaths worldwide, despite containing only 4% of the world’s human population.

  22. With his third consecutive No. 1 album under his belt, Big Sean has much to celebrate. He took his time in crafting Detroit 2 and it was well worth the wait. Not only were there features from his fellow rap and hip hop artists, but there were appearances by the likes of Dave Chappelle and Stevie Wonder. The introspective rapper poured his heart out on the project, and he recently sat down with Jen DeLeon to discuss his latest record while also touching on the topic of developing his work ethic. Throughout Detroit 2, Big Sean spoke a lot about his grind, and he revealed that one problem he had to overcome was equating how much time he worked to how successful he could be. "I was in the studio all day, I used to be like, I'm going hard," he said. "But really, sometimes I would be in the studio all day just forcing it as opposed to really being in there 'cause I was inspired. I used to think that the amount of hours you put into something translates into it being successful, but really, it's not about that. It's about working smarter." It's common for artists to believe that they have to grind 24-7 in order to be recognized in the industry, but Sean revealed he had to unlearn that lesson. The rapper also talked about being more vocal after feeling silenced due to judgment. Being in the public eye can cause many celebrities to not say much of anything because of the criticism from the public, but Big Sean has learned how to navigate his public persona with his personal life. Watch Sean Don share a few noteworthy deep thoughts below. View the full article

  25. When asked why he had failed to set a national mask mandate during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic at ABC News' Town Hall on Tuesday evening, Donald Trump had a strange excuse. "They said at the Democratic convention they're going to do a national mandate," Trump said. "They never did it, because they've checked out and they didn't do it. And a good question is, you ask why Joe Biden - they said we're going to do a national mandate on masks." Biden's long history of urging local governments to issue mask mandates aside, Trump seemed to ignore that he was the only one between the two with the power to institute a national mask mandate. When it was pointed out that Biden had in fact been in support of mask mandates for a while, Trump was unflinching. "But he didn't do it. I mean, he never did it," the president said. Joe Biden responded to Trump's remarks on Twitter, joking "To be clear, I am not currently president." The deflection was part of a series of bizarre statements that Trump made at the event. He followed up by maintaining that "a lot of people think that masks are not good." When asked who those people were, he replied simply. "I'll tell you who those people are: waiters."
