Budget Nazis Arrested For Shooting At Crowd After Richard Spencer Speech

A trio of struggle Nazi members thinking they were doing something important with their time got arrested last week in Florida for recklessly shooting into a crowd after a speech from white nationalist, Richard Spencer. Tyler Tenbrink, and brothers William and Colton Fears all face various charges, including attempted homicide following the Gainesville event that saw a man wearing swastikas catch the most exquisite fade.

Gainesville.com reports:

Three supporters of white nationalist Richard Spencer were arrested Thursday in connection with a shooting, according to Gainesville police.

William Henry Fears, 30; Colton Gene Fears, 28; and Tyler Eugene Tenbrink, 28; were charged with attempted homicide and held in the Alachua County jail. Tenbrink was also charged with being a felon in possession of a weapon.

At 5:20 p.m. Thursday, a silver Jeep with William Fears and Colton Fears, who are brothers, and Tenbrink pulled up to a bus stop at 3315 SW Archer Road, where a small group of people were sitting. The men began cheering Adolf Hitler and chanting.

One person hit the vehicle’s rear window with a baton, and the car sped away before abruptly stopping.

The outlet adds that Tenbrink was the man who fired a lone shot at counterprotesters about a mile away from Spencer’s talk. The men tried to flee the scene but their tags were written down and handed over to the authorities. Several outlets interviewed the trio of men, who seemingly had plans to cause some kind of scene from the onset.

All of this trouble for Richard Spencer. Probably doesn’t seem all that worth it now, as we can imagine.

Senator John McCain Had Bars For Bum Trump Over Ducking Draft?

Senator John McCain Had Bars For Bum Trump Over Ducking Draft?

Senator John McCain has earned the right to talk his ish when it comes to all things military as a Vietnam War veteran and POW survivor. The longtime Arizona politician appeared to take a jab at President Donald Trump and other wealthy Americans who were able to dodge the draft claiming they suffered with “bone spurs” and other ailments.

The Hill writes:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) took what appeared to be a swipe at President Trump during an interview about the Vietnam War on Sunday, criticizing how upper-income Americans were able to obtain a draft deferment for having a “bone spur.”

McCain made the remarks while discussing the draft on an episode of C-SPAN3’s American History TV.

“One aspect of the (Vietnam) conflict by the way that I will never ever countenance is that we drafted the lowest income level of America and the highest income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur,” McCain said. “That is wrong. That is wrong. If we are going to ask every American to serve, every American should serve.”

Also, props to Sen. McCain for spitting that real about how the draft targeted poor Americans across the board thus thrusting them into a war much of the country didn’t even want.

Myeshia Johnson Confirms Trump “Couldn’t Remember My Husband’s Name” [VIDEO]

Myeshia Johnson must be protected at all costs. The widow of U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson has confirmed Rep. Frederica Wilson’s account that President Donald Trump couldn’t remember her husband’s name when he called to give his condolences

Johnson appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America today (Oct. 23), and gave her side of the story.

“What [the President] said was, ‘He knew what he signed up for, but it hurts anyways.’ It made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it,” said Johnson, who was wearing her late husband’s dog tags. “He couldn’t remember my husband’s name. The only way he remembered my husband’s name [is] because he told me he had my husband’s report in front of him. And that’s when he actually said ‘La David.’ I heard him stumbling in trying to remember my husband’s name.”

Johnson also said she was still not able to see her husband’s body and still has unanswered questions about what really happened in Niger.

Myeisha Johnson is pregnant and already has two children with La David.

The President, a known liar, has responded, like a true cretin.

Meek Mill Gets Airport Assault Case Dismissed

Meek Mill‘s lawyer game is proper. The Philadelphia rapper’s airport assault case has been dismissed. 

Back in March, Meek got charged with misdemeanor assault allegedly putting hands on someone who wanted to take a photo with the rapper at St. Louis International Airport.

According to TMZ, the case will be dismissed so long as Meek completes community service. According to his attorney, Joe Tacopina, the community service was completed at the Veterans Association in Philadelphia. 

Recently, Meek had a reckless driving case in NYC dismissed.

So far so good for Meek Mill in 2017.

WATCH: Just Drake Sipping Wine During A Toronto Raptors Broadcast

During the broadcast of the Toronto Raptors taking on the Philadelphia 76ers over the weekend, Drake joined the home court broadcast team but with an added twist. Drizzy, a usual fixture at home games for the Raptors and an ambassador for the team, did the most Drake thing ever by helping call the game with a glass of pinot grigio.

Sitting alongside his friend and alleged muscle Chubbs, Drake was taking in the game courtside while having a chat with Matt Devlin and Leo Rautins from the broadcast team. The Canadian superstar opened up his small segment with the team by asking if the team ever had a sip of pinot while calling the game, with both men questioning what Drake was sipping on.

In another portion of the broadcast, Drake gave his early take on the Raptors season and was in an especially good mood considering the team was easily handling the overmatched Sixers squad.

Check out Drake having a good old time with the Toronto Raptors broadcast team in the two videos below.

ESPN’s Jemele Hill: “I Deserved That Suspension” [VIDEO]

‘ESPN sports analyst Jemele Hill has quietly been serving her 2-week suspension for trumped-up charges—pun very much intended. Hill recently revealed that she’s not mad at the network and went as far as saying that she deserved the suspension. 

TMZ spotted Hill at LAX and asked her about the situation. After saying she was grateful for and humbled by the support of her supporters, she gave a very diplomatic answer.

“Me and ESPN are fine. We’re in a good place and I’m happy to be back at the network,” said Hill, who said she’ll be back Monday (Oct. 23).

She added, “So, here’s how this works—it doesn’t really matter what I think…. It matters to people, but here’s the reality—ESPN acted [how] they felt was right, and, you know, I don’t have any argument or quibble with that. I would tell people, absolutely, after my Donald Trump tweets, I deserved that suspension. I deserved it. Like, absolutely. I violated the policy; I deserved that suspension. Going forward we’ll be in a good healthy place, it’ll be fine. I’m looking forward to it.”

Although Hill regrets putting ESPN, and her co-workers on the show, in a bad spot—she does not take back anything she said.

Respect.

Jay-Z & Beyoncé’s Bel-Air Crib Heading Towards 0M

It took Jay-Z & Beyoncé longer than expected to find their West Coast crib. The Bel-Air crib is inching toward $100M when considering the additional work the couple is putting into the property. 

Reports TMZ:

The Carters have taken out 2 permits in the past month for work on their recently purchased Bel-Air property — one to install a backup generator and make a $30k alteration to the pad, and another to add a living area under the pools for around $750k.

Bey and Jay closed escrow on the mansion in August for $88 MILLION — a dream come true for one new neighbor. But apparently $88 mil only gets you so much.

Hey, it’s not like they can’t afford it.

The Carter’s are a family of five, so surely they need the space.

The TL Is Lit After News Cardi B & Offset Broke Up, Get Back Together Again

The TL Is Lit After News Cardi B & Offset Broke Up, Get Back Together Again

Twitter was on fire Saturday night after news that Cardi B and Migos’ Offset ended their romance, but it appears that the “Bodak Yellow” star is ready to work on things. Even though it looks like the Hip-Hop couple will still be a thing, the timeline has been lit with both sadness, support, and a little doubt even into this morning.

In a series of cryptic social media posts, including a very obvious Boomerang gif captioned “Single,” Twitter fans were shook by the announcement as it seemingly came out of nowhere. The online sleuths also connected other dots, such as Cardi’s ex-boyfriend Tommy Geez being released from jail recently and possibly adding that had something to do with the split from Offset.

Adding to the chatter was Bardi posting up an Instagram photo throwing up double peace signs with the caption “Peace Nikka,” which only added to the speculation. Lastly, a message on her Snapchat with her saying leaving a message of “don’t get used” was a final salvo. But the tune changed this morning when Cardi wrote that much of her posting was impulsive with a public apology to Offset, and an offer to take him to Waffle House to make up.

We’ve collected some of the best Cardi B and Offset break up and reconciliation reactions below and on the following pages.

Lil B Catches A Fade From A Boogie & His Crew For Def Loaf Comparison? [VIDEO]

Lil B was supposed to perform at the Rolling Loud Bay Area festival today (Oct. 21). However, the curse dispersing rapper reportedly got jumped by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and his crew. 

The Based God took to the stage to confirm he caught a fade, and that he doesn’t plan on retaliating.

“A Boogie and his whole crew just jumped me in the back and beat me up in the back, that sh*t crazy man,” said Lil B. “But I’m tell y’all like this, it’s all love. I don’t promote violence, I’m never with the violence so I love them, it’s all good.”

“I said something about Boogie music and they all got mad and they jumped me about that, he added.

Sounds like he’s referring to this tweet.

Lil B went on to say that he got jumped by “like 10 motherf*ckers” and that he couldn’t do his show because they stole his sh*t. Allegedly, PNB Rock was involved in the beat down as well.

The Based God forgives, though.

Just A Bugged Out Stranger Things Teaser [VIDEO]

The second season of Stranger Things is less than a week away, and it can’t get arrive fast enough. Today (Oct. 21), a new teaser was released that will have you ready for more WTF moments in Hawkins. 

The clip is a video of an OG tube television playing various, 80’s nostalgia-inducing ads. The main spot is actually a news report of pumpkins going bad (maybe it’s a prank, probably it’s something more sinister) and Chief Hopper is on the case.

Pumpkins, Halloween, kinda makes sense. If you need a recap of season 1, this is dope.

As for the teaser (see below), not as lit as the previous trailer, but still a worthy watch. Stranger Things season 2 will begin streaming on Netflix on October 27.

Suge Knight Threats Had Straight Outta Compton Director F. Gary Gray Shook

Suge Knight Threats Had Straight Outta Compton Director F. Gary Gray Shook

Suge Knight cuts a menacing figure, so it should come to no surprise that the incarcerated former Death Row Records boss would have people terrified to cross his warpath. Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray was reportedly a victim of one of Knight’s bullying threats, and a new report from the Los Angeles Times suggests that the director lived in fear for his life.

The Times examined transcripts from a grand jury hearing from earlier this year, releasing the documents on Friday. In the court records, Knight reached out to  Gray, apparently angered at how he was depicted in the N.W.A. biopic. Further, Knight was pressing Gray to get paid and the tension between the pair grew after a violent threat sent via text message.

From the Times:

“I will see u in person … u have kids just like me so let’s play hardball,” Knight, 52, wrote, ending the message with a pair of expletives and a racial slur, according to court records.

The messages left Gray so shaken that he spent nearly two days dodging questions about the incident during a grand jury hearing earlier this year, according to transcripts made public for the first time on Friday afternoon.

During the hearing, Gray repeatedly claimed he could not remember anything about the messages, according to a copy of the transcripts reviewed by The Times. At one point, Gray seemed to have difficulty even recalling details about the film he’d directed, which was nominated for an Academy Award and received numerous other film tributes.

The director’s testimony — or lack of it — illustrated the level of fear Knight had instilled in Gray, Deputy Dist. Atty. Cynthia Barnes told the grand jury.

“He’s so afraid he came in here and lied under oath,” Barnes said. “He’s perjuring himself because he’s that afraid.”

Jurors indicted Knight on a charge of a death threat or great bodily injury after the February hearing was held. This had no immediate impact on Knight’s pending homicide and robbery cases.

Chance The Rapper’s Unboxing Grammy Awards With Daughter Is Priceless [VIDEO]

Chance The Rapper took home three Grammy Awards earlier this year, putting a cap on one of the best feel-good stories in Hip-Hop. The Chicago star finally has the trophies in tow after they were mailed to his home this week, and he uploaded a video alongside his adorable toddler daughter who shared in the moment with him.

The 2-minute clip shows Chance, complete in his signature “3” cap and decked out in a Polo fit and khakis, sitting on a floor to open the first of the boxes with his daughter hanging on to Poppa’s neck. Chance, who appeared to be humbled by the moment as it was being filmed, opened the first box which held the Best New Artist Grammy.

Chance’s daughter, very much the star of the show as her daddy was, made sure to keep in close contact see what else was coming from the box. She’s also proving to be a smart cookie with Dad holding up the number “2” and his daughter yelling out the correct answer when asked what it was.

It truly is just an adorable moment.

The Game Says Reports He Got A 15-Year-Old Pregnant Are A Lie

The Game had to take a sabbatical from his quasi-vacation from the public eye to set the record straight. The Compton rapper is vehemently denying reports that he fathered a child with a 15-year-old girl. 

Twitter was on fire with slander after Fameolous and other sites reported that the game had impregnated a 15-year-old in the UK, noting it was the reason for his going AWOL on social media.

Byt Jayceon Taylor is calling bullsh*t.

“This story is a lie made up by a child whom I’ve never met nor talked to in my life,” the Game told Complex in a statement. “I wish big media outlets would stop giving inaccurate news & liars a platform to tarnish their brand & make them look like the Enquirer.”

For the record, we told y’all the story sounded suspect from the jump.

Unfortunately, you can guarantee the correction won’t travel as far as the initial story. He added another message on the ‘Gram…

New Samsung 360 Round To Allow 3D VR Livestreams In 4K

New Samsung 360 Round To Allow 3D VR Livestreams In 4K

Already one of the leaders when it comes to introducing the world to VR, with the announcement of the new Samsung 360 Round they are taking things to another level.

Announced at Samsung’s Developer Conference (SDC 2017), the 360 Round was built for specialists and enthusiasts who demand a superior virtual reality experience while streaming high-quality 3D content.

Suk-Jea Hahn, Executive Vice President of Samsung Electronics’ Global Mobile B2B Team had this to say about the 360 Round:

The Samsung 360 Round is a testament to our leadership in the VR market. We have developed a product that contains innovative VR features, allowing video producers and broadcast professionals to easily produce high quality 3D content.

The combination of livestreaming capabilities, IP65 water and dust resistance and 17 lenses makes this camera ideal for a broad range of use cases our customers want—from livestreaming major events to filming at training facilities across various industries.

Samsung 360 Round

 

Looking like something out of a Metal Gear Solid game, the 360 round uses an astounding 17 2-megapixel lenses, 6 microphones, and 2 mic ports to deliver 3D VR video that is stereoscopic. Oh, and it will also be powerful enough to Livestream in 4K at an amazing 30 frames per second thanks to impressive software.

Sounds good.

As far as durability is concerned, the Round 360 can handle harsh elements, its compact design features IP651 water and dust resistance. The round 360 is also fanless to help reduce weight and silence background noise when recording. Now if you’re wondering how it keeps cool without a fan? Its uni-body chassis is specifically designed to help reduce heat and reduce power consumption for continuous shooting.

The 360 Round also features expandable connectors and ports for additional equipment like microphones and storage for saving for large files.

No information as far as the price has been released yet but owning one of these bad boys is just half the battle. You are also going to need a pretty suped up computer to handle what the 360 Round dishes out as well. Hence this is why the 360 Round is for amateurs but for Pros.

The Samsung 360 Round will be available in the United States in late October and will be available in other markets over time. For more information head over to Samsung to learn more about the 360 Round.

Apparently, the haters have been circling the block questioning the authenticity of the cakes, with her posting a couple of times that women in her home country of Liberia are physically built this way. She’s also known for posting positive quotes about the feminine form, which brings balance to the thirst.

Whether it’s nature, nurture, or otherwise, anyone looking at Wehjla’s body looking for a complaint have absolutely no joy in their heart, obviously.

Nicki Minaj To Be Witness In Brother’s Child Rape Trial

Oct 19, 2017 by admin - 0 Comments

Nicki Minaj To Be Witness In Brother’s Child Rape Trial

You can’t choose your family. Nicki Minaj is scheduled to be a star witness in her brother’s ongoing child rape trial in Long Island

The Queens rapper’s brother, Jelani Maraj, is accused of raping a then 11-year-old girl, his step-daughter, and it seems like the defense will be using her star power in the hope of getting him acquitted.

Reports Page Six:

Minaj will be, in fact, the crux of the defense; in opening statements in Nassau County, the brother’s lawyer said Thursday that the whole case was an attempt to extort $25 million from the hugely successful “Anaconda” rapper.

The little girl’s mother, Jacqueline Robinson, “related to Nicki that, ‘I can make the charges go away for $25 million,’” said David Schwartz, lawyer for Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj.

Robinson and the brother had just married when Robinson’s then-11-year-old daughter told officials in graphic detail that her new stepfather was raping her as many as four times a week, prosecutors say.

In her own opening statement, Assistant District Attorney Emma Slain told jurors that the girl’s brother, who was then 8, first revealed the abuse to child services.

If true, the following details are damning.

The boy said that he’d been beaten by his stepdad after walking in on him having sex with his big sister in a spare bedroom, the prosecutor alleged Thursday.

The school called the cops; a search warrant at the house recovered a pair of the girl’s pajama pants, soiled from the inside with the stepdad’s DNA, the prosecutor said.

“He had sex with that 11-year-old girl sometimes four times a week,” the prosecutor told jurors.

Yeah, this is going to be one messy trial.

Hopefully, the truth, whatever it may be, comes out. For now, there is no word on when exactly Minaj will take the stand.

And if you’re looking for more irony, it was Nicki Minaj who paid for her brother and Robinson’s wedding.

TMZ is reporting that the happy couple’s wedding cake alone ran a cool $75,000. That’s most people’s entire wedding budget, honeymoon costs, and then some.

Cake double my size

A post shared by Gucci Mane (@laflare1017) on Oct 18, 2017 at 6:27pm PDT

As you can see the 10-foot masterpiece is so massive that Gucci was relegated to using a sword straight out of Game of Thrones just to cut through the mountain of a desert.

The cake was put together by Edda’s Cake Designs and the decoration alone only took 3 months of planning, 8,000 handmade sugar flowers and 2,500 Swarovski crystals. As for the delicious insides those consisted of layers of red velvet, amaretto, carrot, banana nut and Jamaican rum cake. Oh, and it took 3 days of baking to complete the process. Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “piece of cake” doesn’t it?

While we’re sure Gucci would’ve had no problem shelling out the 75G’s for the royal pastry, BET actually picked up the tab as part of the $1 million budget for it’s The Mane Event wedding special.

Edda’s Cake Designs were even nice enough to throw in the sword for the wedding ceremony. We’re just wondering if it’s made of Valyrian steel or not.

Wiley Feels Guilty Over Rival Dizzee Rascal’s 2003 Stabbing

Wiley Feels Guilty Over Rival Dizzee Rascal’s 2003 Stabbing

Wiley and Dizzee Rascal are among the top stars in the Grime genre, but the United Kingdom rappers have not been friends for over 14 years due to a stabbing incident in 2003. Wiley, speaking at an awards ceremony this week, said he feels a bit of guilt over what happened to his rival and doesn’t see reconciliation in the pair’s future.

The Sun exclusively reports:

Dizzee reignited the pair’s feud earlier this month in a series of tweets aimed at Wiley, accusing him of having sex with a schoolgirl and denouncing his position as the Godfather of grime.

But speaking at the Q Awards tonight, Wiley, who denied all of Dizzee’s allegations told The Sun Online: “I love that boy. He knows I love that boy but we’re not gonna be friends, not because we argue.

“We’re not gonna be friends anymore because he holds me responsible for being stabbed.

“And I take responsibility – I didn’t stab him – I take responsibility because he was with me but after 14 years I would have thought you would have realised I didn’t stab you.

Wiley hopes to make amends with Dizzee Rascal but that bridge is still under construction it appears.

“I need to find these bastards, I gotta kill them,” says Frank Castle (aka Shane from The Walking Dead aka Jon Bernthal) in the latest trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher. 

That about sums it up.

Okay, not really. There’s more insight into what the season will be about (Frank’s old military handlers coming back to try and silence him (good luck with that) for knowing too much.) And guns and ammo—lot’s of it.

We also get a drop date. The Punisher will start streaming on Netflix on November 2017.

Dipset Back: Cam’Ron & Jim Jones To Reconnect For NYC Show

The Harlem rap crew, Diplomats, better known to fans as the Dipset, defined the sound of New York for the early part of the century. While the music has moved on from that epic sound, the city will get a taste of it once more as Cam’Ron, Jim Jones and the gang are putting the band back together for a show next month.

According to a post on Spotify’s Rap Caviar Instagram page, the Dipset massive will co-headline a show with fellow multi-member crew, A$AP Mob. For a while, things seemed a bit tense between Killa and Capo, longtime friends who grew up together in the Harlem borough. With the apparent bad blood behind them, the Set will take over the Hammerstein Ballroom on Nov. 21 with the Mob.

A look over at Juelz Santana’s IG revealed that things have long since been good with the crew as he posted a photo of the gang to celebrate the birthday of crew member Freeky Zeeky.

Starting to feel like Dip season again!

Kardashians Says Blac Chyna Sniffing Coke All Day Led To Rob Catching A Fade

Kardashians Says Blac Chyna Sniffing Coke All Day Led To Rob Catching A Fade

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are struggle goals. According to sources amidst the former’s fam, the former stripper was on a coke and drinking binge when she allegedly put hands on their sibling.

Reports TMZ:

TMZ broke the story … Chyna is suing Rob, Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kim, Kylie and Kendall, claiming they conspired to torpedo her reality show and also caused her great pain over an alleged domestic violence incident in April. She says Rob knocked her to the ground and hit her in a rage.

Our Kardashian sources say the real story is this … they claim the day before the incident, Chyna was using coke and drinking alcohol from morning till night. They say later that night Chyna and Rob went to a strip club and Chyna got a stripper to come home with them.

We’re told Chyna partied with the stripper all night long, doing more coke and continuing her drinking binge while Rob watched Dream and King Cairo.

Our sources say Rob confronted Chyna the next morning, kicking the stripper out, calling Chyna irresponsible. He claims she went ballistic, hitting him, throwing things at him and berating him. Rob insists he only defended himself and never struck her.

The sources say Rob actually had an appointment that day with the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services, which had an open case against Chyna. He says he protected her by not mentioning the incident.

Shawn Holley, the Kardashian lawyer, tells TMZ, “We have witness statements and other evidence which will demonstrate conclusively that it is Chyna — not Rob — who is the violent and aggressive abuser.”

The sources also say Blac Chyna tried to basically extort the Kardashians for millions.

You care. Ok, probably not.

Post Malone Gets First #1 Billboard Hot 100 Single With “Rockstar”

Oct 17, 2017 by admin - 0 Comments

Post Malone Gets First #1 Billboard Hot 100 Single With “Rockstar”

Lil B‘s favorite sort of rapper, sort of singer Post Malone has won fans over with his particular brand of rap crooning with his megahit “Congratulations” alongside Quavo still getting burn. The Texas native is flying high again with his first #1 Billboard Hot 100 single in “Rockstar” featuring Atlanta’s 21 Savage, which knocked Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” from the top spot.

Billboard reports:

Congratulations are in order for Post Malone, whose “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage, hits No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Oct. 28), marking the first leader for each artist. Plus, Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still” reaches the Hot 100’s top five, and takes over atop the Radio Songs chart, while Sam Smith returns to the Hot 100’s top 10 with “Too Good at Goodbyes.”

“Rockstar,” released on Republic Records, becomes the 1,068th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 59-year history. Post Malone (born Austin Richard Post) had previously peaked at a No. 8 high with “Congratulations,” featuring Quavo, in July, while 21 Savage (Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph) had hit a No. 12 best with “Bank Account.”

Post keeps adding to his epic 2017, this after late last month “Rockstar” broke the Apple Music streaming record. Pretty safe to say Post Malone won’t be talking that he wants to be a rock and country star garbage anymore.

The Reviews Are In, Google’s Pixel 2 The Best Android Phone On The Market

Oct 17, 2017 by admin - 0 Comments

The Reviews Are In, Google’s Pixel 2 The Best Android Phone On The Market

Google is looking to make their presence felt in the smartphone market with the Pixel 2 and based on the latest reviews for it they most certainly will.

Google Pixel 2

The competition is always steep with Apple and Samsung both offering new versions of their popular smartphone lines. It’s hard to make a dent in the market that Apple has sure grip on but with these latest reviews, the Pixel 2 might catch the attention of smartphone enthusiast.

Dieter Bohn of The Verge gave the phone a very solid 8.5 and in his review states:

The Pixel 2 works really well

Still, there are just a lot of little things that are better on the Pixel 2. You find yourself using the Assistant more because it’s giving you better answers over time. You are able to triage your notifications a little faster. The camera makes it much easier to get great shots, even in low light.

The Pixel 2 isn’t the nice dining room table with the fancy silverware. It’s the kitchen counter where you actually eat. It’s not as impressive, but it’s much more comfortable. That’s what makes the design of this year’s Google Phones great. They’re meant to be of use, and they are.

David Pierce from Wired on Pixel 2 in his review:

My whole Pixel experience comes down to this: It has the fewest flaws of any Android phone on the market.

But if you want a phone you don’t have to learn to use or fuss with just to make work properly, you want a Pixel 2. It doesn’t try and make you use Bixby, or provide three browsers and email apps just to confuse you. Google’s version of Android is simple, stable, and eminently understandable. Its hardware design doesn’t scream “the future!” but it feels good and won’t break in a rainstorm.

There’s no better Android phone, anywhere, than the Pixel 2.

Sam Rutherford from Gizmodo, had this to add about Pixel 2 in his review:

The second-gen Pixel XL is kind of handsome in a simple, stoic way, especially on that black and white model with the orange power button. Meanwhile, the regular Pixel 2 feels like it got neglected. Either way, you’re not buying this phone for its build or its style, you’re getting it because you think Google’s software has the answers. And more often than any of its competitors, it does.

Mostly all reviews enjoyed the phone’s simplicity, newest features as well as maybe it’s most important feature, the camera. The biggest complaint is the phones lack of a headphone jack and no wireless charging.

If you’re in the market for a new smartphone and want to steer clear of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, iPhone 8 or X (which drops in a week) this is the phone for you.

The Pixel 2 starts at $650, $850 for the Pixel 2 XL and is currently available for pre-order and will ship officially on October 22nd.

Kickstarter Started For Smithsonian Anthology Of Hip-Hop And Rap Project

Our culture’s timeline will soon be officially chronicled. A Smithsonian Anthology of Hip-Hop and Rap is in the works.

The box set will include over 120 songs via a seven CD set and a 300-page book. It will include anecdotal accounts from artists, producers, DJ’s and music executives and more. Additionally it will feature never published essays and photography from the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). Smithsonian Folkways Recordings will produce and release the set.

Today (October 17) a Kickstarter campaign was announced to bring the anthology to fruition. In a formal press statement Lonnie G. Bunch III, founding director of the NMAAHC, detailed why this initiative deserves the culture’s attention. “Hip-Hop is a musical revolution that embodies the voice of an entire generation. That’s why it’s important for the museum to partner with the Hip-Hop community and Folkways Recordings to tell this story. Hip-hop helps us to understand the power of black music and the impact of African American culture on the world.”

The goal is $250,000 and fans who donate to the fund will receive the finished project before it is available for sale. This endeavor will join very elite company as The Anthology of American Folk Music and Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology the only two anthology entries at The Smithsonian. The deadline to contribute is November 15.

7 Things We Learned From Kendrick Lamar In i-D Mag

True to heart Hip-Hop fans recognize Kendrick Lamar as the best MC in the rap game. And though he hasn’t experienced the commercial success of a Drake, he’s still considered by most to be light years ahead of the King to the North (sorry Drizzy).

Sitting down for an interview with i-D magazine, the Compton, LA rapper opens up about how he goes about creating his art, how Donald Trump helps him in his efforts, and why he can rest easy when his career is all said and done.

Here are the 7 things we learned from Kendrick Lamar in i-D.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s Wish Bone To Kyrie Irving: “We’ll Put Hands On Him”

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s Wish Bone To Kyrie Irving: “We’ll Put Hands On Him”

Put Wish Bone on what could become a growing list of Kyrie Irving haters who felt like the current Boston Celtics guard betrayed the city of Cleveland, Ohio. The Bone Thugs-N-Harmony rapper said the former Cleveland Cavaliers star and his return to the city won’t be a warm one.

TMZ reports:

Kyrie Irving could have some serious issues when he returns to Ohio … so says Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s Wish Bone, who thinks Irving’s DEAD WRONG to say Cleveland’s not a sports city.

ICYMI — K.I. struck a chord with Cavs fans for saying he was finally playing in a “a real, live sports city” after his trade to Boston … which was taken as throwing shade at his old city.

Wish Bone — a huge Cavs supporter from Cleveland — says Irving’s no longer welcome in northeast Ohio … and hints he’ll have to keep his head on a swivel if he tries to walk the streets of Cleveland again.

Let’s hope Irving doesn’t run into any funk in his former team’s town. It’s only basketball. And in case you’re a true hoops fan, LeBron James and the Cavs take on the new-look Celtics tonight at 8 PM ET on TNT.

Waka Flocka Flame Says He Is Not Black, Has A Tribe

Oct 14, 2017 by admin - 0 Comments

Waka Flocka Flame Says He Is Not Black, Has A Tribe

Waka Flocka Flame needs you to get his ethnicity correct. Apparently, the Atlanta rapper isn’t African-American or Black but actually Native. 

We’re not talking the run of the mill “I got Cherokee in my family jig, either. According to the “No Hands” rapper, he is 100% native by blood.

Our sisters over MadameNoire broke down Waka’s “enlightenment” during his appearance on Sway In The Morning:

“When it comes to talking about African Americans, I have no education with that. Period. I’m not even connected to that. That’s a system. That’s like connected to ‘Hey he’s a bad guy. Don’t hang with him.’ I’m not African American at all. My folks is not from Africa. A lot of people in this room’s folks not from Africa. Might be a couple. People just don’t understand. I ask my grandma, what’s your background? She like, ‘Red foot and Black toe Indian.’ Yeah, my mother and father, we’re 100 percent Indian.’ Ask my other grandma, we got Cherokee in us, European and Italian, a little Dominican. It’s crazy. Y’all looking at me funny like, ‘N*gga, I’m African. You’re not though. 80 percent of slaves was already here, was natives.

Sway: 80. Where you get that number from?

Waka: Sh* I just check the books.

Sway: Which book?

Waka: I got a whole laptop full of this sh*t. Just from me reading. It’s not a solid book, like ‘Hey only a thousand slaves came here.’ Nah n*gga you gotta read. You have to literally read. I’m so deep into it I don’t think about a slave ship. I think about what was a slave ship called? Jesus. What the f*ck was the slave ship called that Christopher Columbus was on?

Oh yes, there was plenty more struggle.

When one of the hosts asked about his identity, Waka said this.

Waka: “I’m other. I’m uneducated. So for me to sit here like a college professor, I’m wrong. I’m uneducated. I’m confused. But I’m damn sure not Black. You not going to call me Black. My grandmother is not Crayola. I’m connected to a tribe. I’m from a tribe, not a country. It’s a big difference. Different laws, different everything. Big difference.”

It’s clear that in the midst of this, someone, likely from Waka’s team taps Sway and probably told him to change the subject because homeboy was f*cking up.

But Waka circled back, “I don’t want to make n*ggas feel like I’m on some other sh*t because I’m saying I don’t want to connect with African Americans like I’m saying f*ck Black. It’s nothing like that. It’s that my eyelids is up. And when your eyelids is up, you read about everything you put in your mouth, you say out your mouth, you walk, you talk and conversate with. I don’t live for money everyday no more. I live for the truth.”

Someone, please send Waka Flock one of those DNA heritage tests before he confuses himself any further.

No shots.

Jimmy Fallon Says Being Anti-Trump Is “Just Not What I Do” [VIDEO]

Jimmy Fallon Says Being Anti-Trump Is “Just Not What I Do” [VIDEO]

Jimmy Fallon is going to have to make a choice, but right now he’s toeing the line. The host of The Tonight Show’s ratings have been slipping while his lack of Trump slander is raising eyebrows. 

Fallon is getting the side eye, especially considering his nightly music crew, The Roots, are the type of people Trump wouldn’t bother inviting to the White House.

Reports the Huffington Post:

The dramatic downward trajectory is likely due to Fallon’s decision to refrain from having hard-hitting segments about President Donald Trump’s administration, while Colbert and Kimmel have had massive success doing just that.

Amid the ratings drop (and to promote Fallon’s new children’s book, Everything Is Mama), fellow NBC show “Sunday Today” will have Fallon on for an interview about “The Tonight Show” this weekend. As a teaser, “Today” released a segment of the interview where host Willie Geist asks Fallon why he isn’t going after Trump.

“It’s just not what I do,” Fallon said in response. “I think it would be weird for me to start doing it now. I don’t really even care that much about politics. I’ve got to be honest. I love pop culture more than I love politics. I’m just not that brain.”

The comedian did add that it’s tough to make fun of Trump’s daily struggle because a lot of it is more scary than funny. He said “With Trump, it’s just like every day’s a new thing he gives uh, you know, a lot of material. A lot of stuff is hard to even make a joke about because it’s just too serious.”

To be fair, Fallon did poignantly respond to the Charlottesville riots, saying, “It’s important for white people to speak out against this.”

Pick a side, Jimmy. Even Michael Jordan isn’t rolling with that “Republicans buy sneakers, too” jig.

Nelly Rape Accuser Wants To Drop Case, Refuses To Testify

The saga of Nelly being accused of rape took a dramatic turn. The accuse now refuses to testify and wants the case dropped. 

However, she isn’t saying that she wasn’t raped.

Reports TMZ:

The woman’s attorney, Karen Koehler, says her client has told the Auburn PD in Washington State, and the King County D.A. to “put a halt to the criminal investigation of [Nelly]. She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him.”

ZKoehler says the young woman feels the system has failed her and she can’t stand up to a celebrity. “Who will believe her. People are saying horrible things already. She cannot handle this. She is about to break.”

The woman accused Nelly of rape last Saturday morning.

The St. Louis rapper was never charged and maintained his innocence, saying that the woman’s claims are bogus.

50 Cent Savagely Claps At Wendy Williams, Calls Her “Ugly Motherf**ker”

50 Cent Savagely Claps At Wendy Williams, Calls Her “Ugly Motherf**ker”

Wendy Williams has made it part of her brand to call things as she sees it, which hasn’t made her a favorite of celebrities when she goes on to spill the tea. When the television host took a swipe at 50 Cent over recent news regarding the child support woes between the rapper and his eldest son Marquise Jackson, the G-Unit general went full savage on Instagram.

Much like T.I. did very recently, Fif grabbed a now-viral photo of Williams in a Black bikini that was viciously picked apart on social media.

“Wendy williams just told me to get my life together, smh your husband is not a bad man. he deserve a side chick for talking to you, you ugly motherf*cker Focus on your own sh*t b*tch. Oh yeah we in club LUST tonight you’re invited.LOL,” 50 Cent wrote.

It didn’t end there with the mogul posting yet another image on his Instagram page, this time using an image of the character Vincent from the 1980’s romantic drama, Beauty and The Beast, with Ron Perlman dressed as the half-man, half-lion beast alongside an image of Williams.

“Yeah b*tch, you f*cking around in the wrong section. Every time you call me,I’m a show up,” Fir added.

Ouch.

While it could have ended there, 50 took another jab early Saturday morning (Oct. 14) by posting an image of Angie Martinez at work, taking an indirect dig at Williams again.

Twitter Blasts Headass Trump For Claim He Met With President Of Virgin Islands, Himself

Donald Trump has proven over and over again that he cheated on all the tests, and that Rex Tillerson told no lies. Today (Oct. 13), the Moron In Chief claimed he spoke with the President of the Virgin Islands. 

Everyone but Cheeto quickly realized that he is the President of the Virgin Islands, which being a U.S. territory has a governor.

The slander on the Internets was swift, hilarious and totally deserved.

Peep the best of the best.

Chance The Rapper will be one of the headlining performers during this month’s Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago. Joining the hometown hero onstage will be The National and Gloria Estefan, along with a series of speakers and facilitators from all walks of life.

President Barack Obama announced the summit back in September via his foundation’s website, and Chance, who is everywhere these days, followed through Friday (Oct. 13) to announce his involvement with the festivities.

From the Obama Foundation:

On October 31st and November 1st, the Obama Foundation will welcome civic leaders from around Chicago, the U.S., and the world to join us for a two-day immersive event in Chicago. During this inaugural Summit, hundreds of leaders from around the world will come together to exchange ideas, explore creative solutions to common problems, and experience civic art, technology, and music from around the world.

Chano is also the lead person heading the “creative design” of the event. Check out Chance The Rapper’s announcement for the event below.

Kanye West Steps Out In New adidas Yeezy Sneakers That Look Like Moon Boots [Photos]

Yeah, we get it, adidas jumped over the Jumpman and Kanye West Stans won’t let you forget. But West was spotted out and about in some new adidas Yeezys that look like moon boots. 

Don’t let anyone tell you different.

The kicks kinda look like a high cut version of the Yeezy Wave Runner 700, a pair of dad-friendly looking shoes that didn’t exactly blow people away.

But upon closer inspection, they are on their own level of struggle. No matter, because you can bet they’ll sell out on release fetch chunky price boost on the resale market.

The adidas x Yeezy partnership is supposed to be delivering a basketball shoe, so this may be what we’re looking at. Good luck with that.

NEW YEEZY ALERT 🏀

Rick Ross Threatens Birdman Via Snapchat, Tells Him To Pay Lil Wayne

Rick Ross has been quite firm in standing up for his friend, Lil Wayne, and the ongoing dispute the Young Money captain has with Cash Money Records honcho, Brian “Birdman” Williams. The Maybach Music Group boss took to Snapchat to firmly check Birdman with demands he gives Weezy owed monies, all while throwing a veiled threat in the mix too.

“Boy, you a year late, and five years late paying that man his money. Pay that man his money,” Ross in the short clip. “We know you ain’t right. Stop with the jokes, n*gga. Bring that sh*t.”

The clip switches to Ross pointing the phone camera to a blue sky where he said, “that’s what’s so beautiful about life, ain’t no ceilings. You go far as you want to go. Have no fear. All that talking sh*t, all that sh*t don’t work around here, baby. We’ll put you in check, n*gga, We’ll put you somewhere else.”

Yikes.

Watch Rick Ross giving Birdman that verbal smoke in the clip below. Hopefully, this doesn’t escalate past talk.

Irv Gotti Talks How The Hip-Hop Game Changed In Interview With Cycle

Irv Gotti Talks How The Hip-Hop Game Changed In Interview With Cycle

Once one of the top players in the music game Irv Gotti‘s career was derailed in the mid 00’s thanks to the meteoric rise of Hip-Hop rival 50 Cent and an FBI investigation that scared away potential business partners from working with the embattled music producer.

But for the last few years, Irv has been clawing his way back to relevancy and has been able to once again establish some stable footing courtesy of BET and 300, with the latter helping Irv relaunch Murder Inc.

Continuing his quest to back to Hip-Hop domination, Irv Gotti sat down with Cycle for an interview for its Inner Circle series in which the Queens native spoke about the yesteryears of the golden era of Hip-Hop, how the rap game has changed for both the better and worse, and how the Nielsen ratings box isn’t doing Hip-Hop programming any justice.

Some excerpts:

On Drake’s success and the glory days
“I be telling Drizzy all the time, I’m like, ‘Drizzy, if yous in my thing you’d be selling 15 million every trip. You’d be diamond every trip.’ Like Eminem. Eminem was like 18 – Eminem was doing obscene numbers. There will never be another time like the time when we had it. It was – you could point your finger at like mid-90s to like 2005 and in that ten year span where guys like me from the hood. There was never a time we was getting more money. The music business, when it was flourishing, you would have your guys that would sell five million to ten million crowds. That was when Foolish, Ain’t it Funny, Unreal, Always on Time. We would do it too, we would get off the place, ‘Yo turn the radio on, play the top 40 shit.’ Killing ‘em. ‘Play the black station.’ Killing ‘em. ‘Rhythmic.’ Killing ‘em. That has all been eliminated.”
On Jay Z putting him in his place
“Jay’s album had came out and we sold 2 million. Double Platinum. And I was livid. ‘F–k this fucking bullshit!’ Because Jay and X, the other projects that I was working – Jay was at like 8-9 million worldwide, I always talk worldwide, right? DMX was at like 7 million. So 2 million? I was pissed. Just ‘f–k this shit!’ And Jay’s looking at me like, yo, you mother f–ker. And he checked me. He said, ‘You got a double platinum album and you’re sitting here complaining?’ He said ‘F–k you!’ and walked out.”

Man Poses As Messenger, Steals K Worth Of iPhones From Apple Store [VIDEO]

Apple stores are still not pardoned from the jux. A man recently walked away with $58K worth of iPhones in a simple but yet truly effective delivery scheme.

On September 14 an unidentified man walked into a downtown Manhattan Apple store claiming he was a messenger. According to NYPD he told store employees he was there for a pickup and was handed over three boxes totaling to $58K worth of smartphones. He proceeded to load up the pricey merchandise to his van and sped off to an unknown location.

The thief is said to be anywhere from 45-55 years old, 5’10” and 195 pounds with a bald head. Police have released video surveillance footage which can be viewed below.

Considering the street value of the smartphones dude came up on a big score. This is not the first time Apple retail has gotten hit for big money. In 2015 a Queens Apple store employee was arrested for stealing one million dollars worth of gift cards.

The Wu-Tang Clan Finally Drop The Saga Continues [LISTEN]

Once again the killer bees are finally flying high with their stingers out and ready to attack!

After a lengthy hiatus the Wu-Tang Clan have returned on this Friday the 13th with a new full length LP that fans have been clamoring for what feels like centuries.

The Saga Continues is a 10 cut deep album with a few skits that any old school Hip-Hop head will appreciate.

Mostly featuring the likes of Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, GZA, Inspektah Deck and Masta Killa, the new album is bound to take you back to the time when a sharp sword and a steady flow separated the men from the boys and lyrical content determined your place on the rap totem pole.

We’re just glad Pharma Burger didn’t get the chance to cock-block the culture on this one.

Check out the new LP below and let us know your thoughts on the group’s latest effort.

Lupe Fiasco Launches New Hong Kong & LA-Based Biz Venture

Lupe Fiasco might be a touch quiet on the music front for some, but that doesn’t signal that the Chicago MC isn’t working. Lupe joined forces with business executive Bonnie Chan Woo to form Studio SV, a Los Angles and Hong Kong-based content production venture with big plans in store.

Per the press release released Thursday (Oct. 12) and published by BroadcastingCable.com:

Operating out of both Hong Kong and Los Angeles (where Lupe is based), Studio SV is a multifaceted cross culture entertainment studio producing high-end, mainstream TV programs, digital content and films for global audience, with a mission to foster cross-border collaboration and inclusivity.

The company aims to stray from the norms and traditional boundaries and maintain an edgy disruptiveness, consistent with Lupe’s outspoken nature, to produce content with inspirational celebrities and influencers, introducing fans to personal passions which are mind expanding.

With this mandate in mind, Studio SV’s debut project is “Beat n Path” – a docuseries that follows world famous music artist Lupe Fiasco as he drops everything to embark on a cross-cultural journey of epic proportion across China. In the pilot series, he lives out his other passion – martial arts – practicing with Kung Fu Masters throughout China, while also taking the opportunity to explore China’s burgeoning hip hop scene.

Salute to Lupe Fiasco for this brand new money move.
