Machine Gun Kelly x Amber Rose

Amber Rose and Machine Gun Kelly were spotted out in New York City holding hands and looking quite cozy last week, but we haven’t heard too much about the pair since.

(Video) Wiz Khalifa Talks Putting Kendrick On, “See You Again” vs.”Black & Yellow” & More

Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa has been a highly talked about member of the rap game for quite some time, whether it be for his music or his personal relationship issues. The Taylor Gang front man recently chopped it up with MTV to take a little walk down memory lane to reminisce about his past summer tours, “See You Again” vs. “Black & Yellow,” collabing with PARTYNEXTDOOR and putting Kendrick and Mac Miller on.

“Every last one of my summer tours: ten, ten, ten, ten, ten,” Wiz said. “Mac Miller was awesome. A lot of people don’t remember that I took Kendrick [Lamar] on tour with me. Give me some credit for that,” Wiz says about giving Mac and Kendrick some shine in the industry.

When talking about taking over the Billboard charts not once but twice with “See You Again,” which was on the Furious 7 soundtrack, and his first real hit “Black & Yellow,” he explains how he transitioned throughout the years. “When I did ‘Black & Yellow’ I was kind of unknown, chilling, on the rise and then boom, a number one record. Then I had all these opportunities in front of me,” he said, before comparing it to his recent number-one hit “See You Again.” “Then a lot of time went on. It wasn’t like I just came out with another number one right away…now I have a lot of other opportunities.”

(Video) Fetty Wap & His Mom Explain His Eye In More Detail (Plus – Find Out How The Drake Collab Came About!)

Fetty Wap x TMZ

As he was leaving Fallon last night, TMZ cameras stopped Fetty Wap, and asked him about his eye. Though he’s already explained why he only has one, Fetty included some new details we haven’t heard before, and Mama Wap was there to co-sign. (He’s also speaking SO much clearer than he has in previous interviews – a sign of what was likely some lovely media training!)

He also spoke with FADER yesterday, and explained how the Drake collab came about:

Drake reached out through Instagram, Fetty said. “He sent me a DM, and I sent him my number. When I landed from Tampa a couple of days ago, and as soon as I landed and turned my phone off of airplane mode, he was FaceTiming from DC where he was playing ‘My Way’ at a club. He was like, ‘Yo, I want to cut the record tonight.’ Next thing I know, I checked my email and it was there.”

(Video) A Healthy Dose Of Truth: Chris Hayes Talks About Problems In The “White Community”

IFWT_chrishayes

This is a must watch! Chris Hayes uses a creative method of showing how unfairly media depicts the “black community” when choosing what to report, and even more so when choosing how to report it. He touches on sensitive topics like why “White On White Crime” (which does exist), is something we barely ever hear about in the news; yet, “Black On Black Crime” is reported daily and the term has become a common and familiar phrase. This coming after the coverage and scrutiny of African Americans displaying justifiably outrage; and lack thereof in regards to White American’s who riot for illegitimate reasons. Watch the full video for yourself!
