img_8540-1

He got Nicki he know that he hit the jackpot!

Although rap duo Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill have been dating for over a year now that native Philadelphian admits that dating the mega pop star is like living a dream come true. In a recent interview with Noisey Raps the MMG rapper tells them he knew he had  to be with a girl from the hood who would understand his lifestyle. He says:

Where I come from, I can’t just be from the hood and just have a like a total opposite girlfriend, she don’t know nothing about where I come from… she don’t understand me. So, it’s somebody that’ll understand me, somebody that hustles, you know what I’m saying? Somebody that’s aggressive. You know, these the things I like.

Wearing his heart on his sleeve, Meek said being with Nicki is a dream come true because it was something he always wanted in life.

I always seen it like this. I always seen me having one of the top hustling, prettiest girls in the game. That’s how my account was set up. I could wake up in my bed and just look at Nicki, like man this shit, it gotta be a dream ’cause we used to dream all this shit and it’s just going on right now.

Lil Wayne Talks Marrying Gay Couple And Drake Sleeping With His Girl While In Prison

lil-wayne-gone-till-november

Lil Wayne found himself reminiscing while he was incarcerated at Rikers Island in New York during March of 2010. Dwayne Carter Jr. spent eight months in prison out of a one year sentence but he used his time spent very wisely.

The 33 year old rap legend is publishing Gone Til November on October 11. From performing a gay marriage ceremony for two inmates, Drake confessing to sleeping with his then girlfriend, getting multiple female guards suspended from their jobs, and watching shows such as American Idol. Prison actually brought life into perspective for the Louisiana native.

Imagine seeing grown a– men in jail hanging tissue for wedding decorations, and one of them is Lil Wayne. Crazy.

To waste time Weezy enjoyed watching American Idol however when The Wendy Williams Show came on he would much rather be occupied in his cell. Even behind bars The Mrs. Officer rapper had the ladies falling for him. During his stay two female officer guards were suspended for visiting him.

Maybe there will be some female groupies in this b-tch after all.

Weezy wrote.

Wayne requested for one girl to visit him during this stay and insisted she shouldn’t wear underwear but his plan back fired in his face. He says:

They got caught because they have extensive a– searches before you come in here, so they made her put on a pair of boxers because they knew she didn’t have on panties. Damn!

Wayne also received visits from P.Diddy and Kanye West whom all underwent body searches, according to Page Six.

Although Drake was his YMCMB homie, it didn’t stop him from sleeping with his then girlfriend behind his back. Wayne explained how this troubling news motivated his lowest point while incarcerated.

Finding out that she (bleeped) Drake was the absolute worst thing I could have found out. Drizzy came to see me, he was like, Yeah it’s true. Damn! This is the type of (bleep) a man never wants to find out while he is locked up.

Wayne also ended with stating how prison changed his thinking process and elevated his creative mindset.

I always thought I needed things like being high with my ni–a, a Bugatti, a dope a– crib or some big booty b-tches to be creative. But once it was taken away from me, my creativity was put to the ultimate test.

Will you be buying his upcoming memoir?

Donald Trump Shows Lack of Empathy Over Dwyane Wade’s Murdered Cousin

IMG_7815

Sadly we live in a world where acts of senseless violence continue to plague our communities. On Friday Dwyane Wade’s 32 year old cousin Nykea Aldridge was fatally shot and murdered while pushing a baby stroller in Chicago’s Parkway Gardens. Aldridge was clearly at the wrong place at the wrong time, when two men began to open fire hitting her in the head and arm. Although she was not the initial target she was later pronounced dead at the hospital, and now four kids will forever live without their mother.

My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence, four kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughIsEnough. The city of Chicago is hurting. We need more help and more hands on deck. Not for me and my family but for the future of our world. The YOUTH!

This is something that didn’t start today, this is something that isn’t going to end tomorrow, hopefully,eventually, we can stop it.

Wade expressed his frustration through twitter as the world and NBA fans shared their condolences with sentimental posts to the Chicago Bulls player. With the sudden lost of his cousin you would’ve thought the living nightmare ended there. Unfortunately emotional intelligence is something Trump has lacked since the beginning of his political run for office.

Dwyane Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African Americans will VOTE TRUMP!

Trump tweeted. After Trump’s distasteful tweet twitter was filled with so much outrage leaving hateful comments on his page, which initiated Trump later apologizing for his comment tweeting,

My condolences to Dwyane Wade and his family, on the loss of Nykea Aldridge. They are in my thoughts and prayers.

Don’t forget the GOP nominee publicly discriminated African American voters last week during one of his rallies saying,

Look how much African American communities are suffering under Democratic control. To those I say the following, what do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump? You’re living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. Fifty eight percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?

Frank Ocean Ends Silence With New Albums ‘Blond’ And ‘Endless’

frankocean.0.0

On Saturday August 20th Christmas came early when the world was found drooling over their iphones and androids due to the long and highly anticipated sophomore album. As a result of the torture Ocean put us through, crazed fans lost their sanity when Frank Ocean blessed the hip hop spectrum with his visual album titled “Endless”, music video to intro “Nikes”, and surprised pop up shops located throughout New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and London. Ocean’s team handed out free copies of his initial title LP, Boys Don’t Cry. The exclusive magazine also included the 17 track LP Blond with features from Kanye West, Beyonce, the late David Bowie, Kendrick Lamar, and Andre 3000. This elaborate magazine was far from disappointing; its size could be compared to a Vogue magazine which contained essays, poetry, and photos by many high ranked artists in the industry such as Yeezy himself.  

The Grammy award winning artist disappeared from the face of the Earth. After four years of speculation to whether Ocean could ever redeem himself has truly come into fruition.

See more below.

I had the time of my life making all of this. Thank you all. Especially those of you who never let me forget that I had to finish. Which is basically everyone of yall.

He’s definitely not lying about that part, fans have been pouring their outrage and frustration out on Twitter and Instagram for the past year. Although Apple Music has categorized Blond under the pop genre, his vocal tracks, feeds off of blues, soul, all while remaining centralized to R&B. Ocean expresses himself as a male whom isn’t afraid to put away his masculine ego and open up to his vulnerabilities, especially to “Ivy” singing:

I thought that I was dreaming when you said you love me.

I’m pretty sure every man and woman can correlate to that one past heartless lover. With his new album and soulful approach can Frank Ocean earn Best R&B album of the year, or is it too early?

BFA_16918_2115447-640x427

Free tickets, free drinks, a view of some of the newest and dopiest art pieces plus live performances, you had me at the word free.

Last week Swizz Beatz held his national The Dean Collection also titled No Commission event geared to appreciate the aesthetics of a range and diverse culture of arts around the globe. Each artist was able to display their artwork for free and was given 100% of the sales which went straight back to the artists. If you weren’t there I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but getting lit isn’t one.  

Throughout Thursday and Sunday Swizz Beatz entertained his guests with drinks (sponsored by Bacardi), food, special guests, and an overall good time. Live performances and special guests varied from Asap Rocky, Fabolous, Pusha T, Remy Ma, Fat Joe, DMX, Young Thug, Angie Martinez, and etc. This private event took place in Bronx, New York where artists and entrepreneurs from fashion, music, and art enthusiasts were able to network while spreading the importance of art to young millennials via social media. To top it off this event hit home for Swizzy because he grew up in the Bronx, guests were able to see the same projects that raised him on the Ferris wheel. While being interviewed by Angie Martinez from Power 105.1 he had this to say:

I want my outlet and platform to be a freedom for the artist and for the people.

I wanted this to feel like a cultural event where your vibing and hearing Spanish, African music, art collectors, billionaires, people that live with their moms, a gumbo pot the U.S. haven’t seen.

Us as a brand can really give back to the culture and do cultural moments like this where everybody can fit in.

His special message to the people at home was, “if you free the artist you free the world.”

kanye-west-drake-album-joint-ovo-fest-750x522-1470251710Drake-and-Rihanna-OVO-Fest

As you may or may not know, The 6 God just celebrated the 7th annual OVO Fest in his hometown of Toronto, Canada this past weekend. The Canadian pop star had guest appearances from the likes of Future, Rihanna, Popcaan, Kanye West, and other countless artists.

Fans were gazed by Drake and Rihanna’s flirty performances to Work, as well as Too Good, and was later able to turn up to the trap lord Future. And just when you thought this concert couldn’t possibly get any more lit, Kanye being his godly self delivered an important message before his performance. While the crowd was amazed at Yeezy standing on stage, he stated that he and Drake are coming together for a collaborative album.

Kanye blurted out,

Toronto, I got one question for you, Is you all ready for this album, I’m not talking about Pablo.

Later Drake came out on stage to clear up any confusion by saying,

What my brother was asking before was, are you ready if we make an album

And you can imagine how the crowd lost their minds from there. Take a look below.

With Drake and Future’s collaborative mix tape What A Time to Be Alive, making headlines within a few hours of its release there’s no telling what these two may have up their sleeves.

The concert expectedly sold out back to back within the next two nights, showing how much Toronto is in support of Drizzy. In addition to this dope event, Drake made the crowd go insane with his beaming lights, and colorful balls dropping from the ceiling rapping hit singles such as, Started From The Bottom, to HotLine Bling with the crowd echoing every single word. 

Catch a few of the performances below.

Discussion: Is Desiigner Still Labeled A One Hit Wonder After Release Of Timmy Turner?

The “I got broads in Atlanta” rapper is the viral topic of conversation after his follow up to No. 1 smash hit Panda”. You may not be able to make out what he’s saying, but his catchy lyrics are memorizing. After being introduced to the hip hop industry with his iconic memes and remixes, Desiigner has marked his territory with his newly single “Timmy Turner”.

With the pressure of being inducted into the XXL Freshman class of 2016, Desiigner launched another banger for  his fans and anticipated doubters with one freestyle. “Timmy Timmy Turner, he been wishing for a burner to kill everybody walking,” sings the rapper whose voice has been compared to the dirty sprite rapper Future. It seems Kanye was spot on when choosing the 19 year old Brooklyn native rapper to represent the G.O.O.D music family. With his first mixtape New English released with features from his own squad Pusha T, it may seem safe to say Desiigner isn’t a one hit wonder. While we have to anxiously wait for his next move to kill everybody walking we’ll gracefully break down his contagious hook to Timmy Turner”.

Read more and listen below.

Timmy Timmy Turner

He been wishin’ for a burner

To kill everybody walkin’

You know that it’s on in the furnace

Fine bitch on BET

Hottie, why you aren’t fuckin’ on BET

Wildin’ for wallet

To kill everybody walkin’

He throwin’ his soul on the furnace.

Congrats! Wale Births Baby Girl Zala With Longtime Girlfriend

FullSizeRender (10)

Congratulations are in order to newly parents Wale and long term girlfriend Chloe Alexis. The couple birthed their little bundle of joy, Zyla Moon Oluwakemi, yesterday afternoon.

The rapper has always opened up about his personal life in his lyrics. Like on songs such as ‘The Matrimony” where he reminisces on their previous miscarriage. And unfortunately for that reason Wale says that is why he kept the pregnancy a secret this time around.

He took to Instagram with a beautiful message after his babygirl was born.

Check it out below.

Overjoyed . I keep the most important things in my life so far away from people because I’m sensitive . Quite possibly too sensitive to even be in this business nevertheless I spoke on the downward spiral that ensued after complications with my previous child… For that reason I kept this very private as I prayed every day to receive this blessing . Thank You to all my friends so many , Iman/Teyana . Draya and O.Mel and Robyn. Finn Balor Neil Lawi. Bryson, Kehlani WizardEd.. So many ppl that stayed up wit me and talked me thru such a sensitive subject … I named my album SHiNE when I knew my babygirl was on the way …I want to be a better man than I ever been.

My focus is renewed I’m infinitely in love with my princess and I truly appreciate all the love you have shown her and how understanding many people who knew were .imma keep workin on me and pray to God I can design a young princess who flourishes to an absolute queen ..

Drake Drops New Album “Views” And Interviews With Zane Lowe

drake-views-digital-booklet-1

What a time to be alive.

Over the past few months, Drake has consistently supplied fans with just enough new music to keep them comfortable but finally the wait is over! After dropping several hits including the chart-topping single “Hotline Bling”, dancehall inspired “One Dance”, and of course “Summer Sixteen”; Drizzy is finally giving the fans what they’ve been anxiously waiting for with the release of his fourth studio album, Views From The 6.

Earlier this week, Drake returned to social media to drop all the announcements needed to build up anticipation for the Views release. He took to his Instagram to give us a first look at the albums jaw-dropping cover art which featured the superstar sitting atop the famed CN Tower overlooking the Toronto Skyline.

He then returned to the gram to announce the “Summer Sixteen Tour” (appropriately named after the recently released single) accompanied by Future, Roy Woods, DVSN, and a few other special guests that have yet to be announced.

See more below.

The self-proclaimed Champagne Papi continued to send the internet into a frenzy by releasing the albums 20-song tracklist followed by a short video clip to keep fans occupied until its official release.

While many of you were most likely tuned in to Drizzy’s new album, the rapper was conducting what he says “is his very last interview” with Zane Lowe. Here’s a few excerpts.

On getting Jay and Kanye on “Pop Style:

Jay didn’t really do a verse. I was just trying to get ‘Ye on it first. Jay kinda just did my first few lines for me and that’s how we flexed it … It didn’t play out how I wanted it to go. Sometimes [Jay Z and I] just fall on opposite sides of the spectrum. It’s always mutual respect but sometimes it has to be from afar.

On his relationship with Nicki Minaj:

I don’t really talk to Nicki. Another person I have a lot of love for … Not only for our past and the how much work and time we put it, but for how she dealt with the situation at hand. She dealt with me how I would expect her to — with class. I always have respect and love for her. Unfortunately, we haven’t spoke.

On how he feels Views will be received:

I don’t want you to get it right away … Great music takes a little work. It takes elevating your listening level.
