So there’s this guy who goes around terrorizing the clothing brand Supreme’s customers, who are waiting in line for new merch. He does stuff like kick your bag, bully you, throw your hat to the ground and even fights you just because you like Supreme. And he does it all in the name of BAPE. Now the brand BAPE releases a statement saying they have no affiliation with this character.
Since July of 2010, Tyler, The Creator has been on Twitter under the infamous handle, @fucktyler. Of course, this isn’t the most family-friendly name, but as an artist who thrived off controversy and whose popularity reigned mainly on an underground level, this wasn’t much of a concern for the young rapper. Times have changed, however.
Over the weekend, Drake took the opportunity to throw more shots at Meek Mill, once in D.C. and then again in Meek’s own hometown of Philly. Some see it as sport and don’t feel bad for Meek because he started the beef, while others feel like Drake is taking it way too far (he did call him a “p*ssy,” after all,) and should let it go. Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg falls into the category of the latter.
Over the weekend, rumors started circulating that Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., would reprise his father’s role in a remake of his 90s classic, Friday, alongside comedian DC Young Fly. Because of both young actors’ resemblance to the original characters, memes suggesting the remake should happen have been circulating since O’Shea was introduced to the masses in last summer’s Straight Outta Compton. However, they seemed to become a reality when what appeared to be O’Shea’s official Facebook page posted this weekend that it was happening.
Chance The Rapper is fully independent, and made history earlier this year when his album became the first streaming-only project to chart on top 10 on the Billboard 200. His success comes solely from the support of fans who attend shows, buy merch and stream the music, but now he wants to bring it even further. “I want you to share my music in whatever city you’re in with as many people as possible,” Chance tweeted yesterday. “The radio is like a huge listening party for people of all demographics to get in tune. In those moment its mad ppl in harmony. #optioncee requires your twitter and will take place over the next few weeks. It has phases so I’ll keep tweaking it but let’s take over! I present #optioncee aka rapperradio.com. When you type in your city, a tweet to city button should appear. Will be up ASAP.”
Drake made quite the moment on stage last night in Detroit, bringing out the city’s hometown hero, Eminem, to perform their 2009 song, “Forever.” While this is a moment in and of itself, the impact it had was that much more, considering the rumors that circulated last week about the pair having beef because of Eminem’s close affiliation to Joe Budden. As you know, the rumor was started when Ebro referenced a convo with Drake where he joked about the possibility of a diss from Em on Joe‘s behalf, and listeners thought he was saying it was a serious conversation.
Wale has been known to go at it with fans and just about anyone else with a Twitter profile. Next victim up is the hailing SnapChat queen, YesJulz. The blows get pretty nasty once she starts publicly roasting the DC rapper for everyone to see 😳
