UK rapper Skepta has announced the release date and the tracklisting for his debut album. Konnichiwa will be arriving on May 6, with pre-order available tonight at midnight on iTunes. This comes a week after Drake’s Views From The 6 on April 29, who speaking of which, seemingly will appear on Konnichiwa as well. On the handwritten tracklist, “Shutdown” has an owl drawn into the word, and considering their close friendship and now business relationship, it’d be crazy if Drizzy WASN’T on the album. Check out the tracklist and the cover in the gallery. Are you looking forward to this one?
When he tweeted to clear up the drama between him and Justin Bieber yesterday, Post Malone added an additional tweet at the end:
“end of story i love jus more than life <3 and THE MIXTAPE IS ON THE PRECIPICE OF RELEASE. God bless my fans <3”
Malone shot to fame in 2015 thanks to the success of his breakout single “White Iverson,” and though he’s released a few songs since, he’s been mainly busy with touring alongside Fetty Wap and now Bieber. That being said, this will be his first official release, and fans are certainly anxiously awaiting its arrival. Late last night, Malone added even more fuel to the fire, revealing the project’s artwork, though not yet giving any details as to a name, tracklist or a release date. Hopefully it’s sooner than later! Check out the cover below.
It seems like just yesterday Rick Ross and Lira Galore were engaged. After they split and he moved on to his new girl @justcort, he was spotted on snapchat with another new mystery woman. Hit the jump for pics.
We all know that Drake has loved him some Rihanna for years now, and he just made it even more known. The folks over at @TeaTenders have discovered that Drizzy got a tattoo of Rih’s face on his arm, AND he has the very same photo that he tattooed hanging up in his Toronto restaurant, Fring’s. Oh, and another thing? Guess what his nickname for Rih is. Yep, it’s Fring. Check out the receipts in the gallery. Wonder how Travi$ Scott feels about all of this…
Welp, looks like FADER mag can put away their bulletproof vests. They’ve obtained the trust of young Metro Boomin, and thus he appears on the cover of their April/May 2016 issue. Thanks to Future rapping the now-infamous tagline, the successful producer is now seeing a lot more mainstream fame, and is even selling his own merchandise. Sitting down with FADER, he discusses how he OJ The Juiceman was the first rapper to give him a shot, how his mother was so supportive she’d drive him roundtrip from St. Louis to Atlanta weekend after weekend so he could work with OJ, how he’s working on Views From The 6 and more. It’s a REALLY great read.
In 2015, Erykah Badu responded to a fan who’d asked if she listens to Azealia Banks, and wrote, “Tried.” Simple enough, but of course because Azealia is Azealia, she couldn’t take it in stride. She responded to Badu with, “…. Jealousy,” and then a brief exchange occurred, with Azealia actually wanting to fight Badu. SMH! Now over a year later, the pair have buried the hatchet, after Badu decided to extend an olive branch to her younger peer. “sis. 1 thing I know 4sho about YOU is that you r an advocate 4 your folks. For that I humbly apologize,” she tweeted. Banks then accepted the apology, an added, “i apologize for all the stupid things I said in response. I honestly look up to you and think your incredible.” Check out the full exchange in the gallery!
The Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me, has been filming in Atlanta since earlier this year, and yesterday, they moved over to Las Vegas to complete the film. As you know, Pac died following the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand in Vegas in 96, so the cast will be reenacting “the hours and events leading up to that fateful night.” According to a press release, some of the cast and crew will be honored by the City of Sin today with a proclamation from Clark County Commissioner, Lawrence Weekly. This includes the film’s director Benny Boom, and the actor portraying Tupac, Demetrius Shipp Jr. No word on when this will hit theaters, but I’m looking forward to it. Will you be checking for it?
