2 Chainz is one of the many artists who has been using Instagram Live to stay connected to his fans. During a recent session, the rapper formerly known as Tity Boi revealed the second installment of his collaborative album with Lil Wayne will arrive sometime in 2020.
“I’m also dropping ColleGrove 2 this year,” he said.
The first ColleGrove project arrived in 2016 and featured production from a bevy of notable beatsmiths, including Southside, Mike Will Made-It, TM88, Infamous, Zaytoven, Lil’ C, Metro Boomin, Ben Billions and London on da Track.

The album debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 upon its release with roughly 53,000 total album equivalent units sold in its first week. While technically a joint project, 2 Chainz received sole credit due to Wayne’s label problems at the time.

The “The Ballina Cup,” as its being called, will be held over eight days with a total 16 participants. TMZ says celebrities will include Travis Kelce, Rob Gronkowski, Sports Illustrated Swim model Camille Kostek, Johnny Manziel, Machine Gun Kelly, Kane Brown, Trevor Bauer, Mike Clevinger, and more.
The event will be conducted through video chat from the celebrities’ homes, in accordance with social distancing practices. Entry fees will be collected and given to relief funds.
The Ballina Cup begins next week, with two matches per night. A trophy and wrestling belt will be awarded to the winner.
Planning the Ballina Cup, reportedly, is not taking away from Malone’s time in the studio. His longtime manager Dre London hinted at the rapper being in “Quarantine Album mode,” last week: “I’m sorry I can’t stay away from my brother Posty! I’ll take the chance,” wrote the music executive on Instagram. “Tonight we made a smash on FaceTime now we gonna just go into Quarantine Album mode! If we don’t connect energy how the world] gonna enjoy this summer?”

We will make every effort to ensure that this change, imposed as a result the current global health crisis, affects the festival’s program as little as possible.”

Trump explained the idea to reporters outside the White House, Saturday: “We’d like to see New York quarantined because it’s a hotspot — New York, New Jersey, maybe one or two other places, certain parts Connecticut.
“We might not have to do it but there’s a possibility that sometime today we’ll do a quarantine — short-term, two weeks for New York, probably New Jersey and parts Connecticut,” he added.
Saturday afternoon he tweeted, “I am giving consideration to a QUARANTINE developing “hot spots”, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. A decision will be made, one way or another, shortly.”
Many states are coming down hard on New Yorkers looking for an escape. Nearby, the National Guard, in Rhode Island, is pulling over any New York plates and enforcing a two-week quarantine travelers who plan to stay in the state. The National Guard is also going door-to-door to enforce the quarantine.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo hopes New Yorkers will not have to avoid any quarantine, telling reporters, “I don’t know how that could be legally enforceable. … Not even understanding what it is, I don’t like the sound it.”
Kourtney Kardashian’s oldest child, Mason Disick, went ahead and made himself a TikTok account after his mom removed him from Instagram for spilling the real tea about his aunt, Kylie Jenner, and her baby daddy, Travis Scott, over Instagram live recently. It’s true that kids say the dardnest things, and more ten than not, they’re telling the truth. That’s why it was such a big deal when Kourtney Kardashian’s 10-year-old son, Mason, answered a KarJenner fan’s question about his youngest aunt, Kylie Jenner, and her baby daddy and rumoured on-again boyfriend, Travis Scott. The user asked Mason if Kylie and Travis were actually back together, something that the famous co-parents have seemingly been leading the public to believe. However, Mason flat-out denied it, exposing some internal secrets within the reality show family. After the clip him shutting down the Kylie/Travis rumours went viral, Kourtney deleted Mason’s Instagram account altogether.
The oldest member the new generation Kardashians bragged that he “went viral” and complained that he “would have had 2.7 million] followers] by now if I kept it up.” He also responded to a few questions from fans about his famous family, revealing that he hasn’t seen his cousin, Stormi, in awhile “because corona.” However, it looks like his parents have now taken control this account, too, and promptly deleted it, as well. Both TikTok and Instagram have an age restriction 13 years or older, so Mason is technically not allowed to be on those apps anyway. Maybe he’ll sneak his way onto Twitter next.
As the coronavirus pandemic forces people into self-quarantine and scientists around the globe work tirelessly to find a cure (or at least a vaccine) for COVID-19, Donald Trump and former host of The Apprentice is facing criticism for not getting ahead of the situation.
On Saturday (March 28), 50 Cent made it perfectly clear how he feels about the way Trump is handling the pandemic50 Cent Sends Shots To Donald Trump On Instagram , sharing an Instagram post that read, “You wanted a reality show host as president. Well now you’re on Survivor.”
He wrote in the caption, “yeah we fucked up big time, but we gonna be alright watch. LOL.”
It was only two weeks ago that 50 was hitting a strip club in New York City as the coronavirus was making its way across the globe. In video of his wild night out, 50 threw dollar bills at the dancers and wasn’t adhering to the social distancing rules set in place.
But the situation has grown exponentially more serious since then. The United States now has more reported cases of COVID-19 than any other country in the world. New York alone has over 52,000 cases.

New York officials forecast the apex of the pandemic in the state is still 14 to 21 days away. At that point, the state expects it will need 140,000 hospital beds. According to the latest report from the CDC, there are 103,321 reported cases in the U.S. and 1,668 deaths.
Twitch’s live event, ‘Stream Aid 2020’, is helping raise money for the World Health Organization.
The 12-hour stream features celebrity guests, music, and games like Fortnite. The event went live on the main Twitch website at noon EST. Twitch hopes to raise as much money as possible to help the WHO fight COVID-19.
Diplo, Die Antwoord, and Charlie Puth are just a few of the music stars stopping by.
Gaming streamers on the platform are also headlining a tournament. Those streamers are participating in doing their part to help raise funds to fight coronavirus.
“Literally, every single person who’s in my live stream has someone who’s affected,” one streamer said. “A lot of people are a little nervous. They don’t know how long they’re going to be out from work, out from school, and they realize how serious it is.”
Twitch is rapidly growing as more and more people are forced to stay home. While the site is geared primarily toward gamers, it has seen an during this crisis.
The site even partnered with SoundCloud to help to affiliate status. Twitch affiliate status allows users to monetize their channels and collect donations from the audience. Twitch itself is no stranger to live streams to benefit causes.
Last year, a game streamer raised more than $2 million in 24 hours for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Other charity organizations like Awesome Games Done Quick also use the platform to reach its audience to benefit their chosen charities.
Some users have concerns about Twitch’s ability to keep the show rolling, though.
Last year during the Fortnite event, Twitch went offline with 3.4 million concurrent viewers. Since the coronavirus outbreak, Twitch has seen numbers rise drastically. So far, the stream seems to be staying up – Amazon probably learned a lesson last year in catering to more massive crowds.
YouTube Music now displays lyrics to listeners on the iOS and Android apps.
Users can tap the “i” button while a song is playing to see the lyrics. YouTube Music finally joins the ranks of Apple Music and Spotify, showcasing lyrics to listeners. The only downside – all lyrics are static, you have to scroll through manually.
While YouTube Music lyrics are available for some songs, not all songs have the option.
LyricFind is still the main partner for powering YouTube Music’s lyrics – despite being caught stealing lyrics from Genius. That revelation ended up with Genius suing Google over the stolen lyrics. Apple made its Genius partnership official last year – complete with original content.
Recent albums like Childish Gambino’s 3.15.20 and Jay Electronica’s A Written Testimony are missing lyrics. YouTube says they receive lyrics daily from LyricFind, but there’s no timeframe for when a song will get its lyrics.
This new feature is only available in the YouTube Music mobile app – not the web player.
Sorry, desktop listeners. YouTube says the feature will come to the web player “soon.” YouTube seems to be prioritizing those who use the mobile app. Just recently, YouTube Music finally got a long-awaited feature – the ability to . Many Google Play Music users have been hesitant to switch, thanks to YouTube Music’s lack of features.
YouTube Music supports FLAC, M4A, MP3, OGG, and WMA files and metadata. One neat feature, YouTube Music removes duplicates from your library automatically. Despite the ability to upload files to YouTube Music, there is still no ability to migrate Play Music libraries easily.
GPM users are being told to “stay tuned” for a way to transfer music between the two seamlessly. The music upload feature also seems to be a selective rollout – some accounts have it, and some don’t.
Atlanta, GA – Future’s FreeWishes Foundation has teamed up with Atlanta Sewing Style to create custom masks for healthcare professionals and patients currently hospitalized due to the coronavirus pandemic — the appropriately dubbed #MaskOn Campaign.
According to a press release, the Atlanta Sewing Style collective is comprised of over 500 sewists and designers who will “create, cut, sew and deliver the much-needed masks to local hospitals.”
“There is so much that needs to be done during this crisis and if everyone can step up in some way, we can all get through this together as we serve our community,” Future’s mother Stephanie Jester said. “I think that our healthcare professionals are the heroes in this situation and they are risking their lives for everyone, so it is our responsibility to help protect them.”
Tia-Wilburn Anderson, Future’s sister and FreeWishes Foundation co-founder, added, “It is important to my brother, Future and I that we are of service to our community, especially during this pandemic and throughout the year. This is why our family created the foundation.”

Drake probably isn’t flying anywhere anytime soon (we hope) but that doesn’t mean he can’t prepare for when the lockdown is over. Many rappers and celebrities have flaunted flying private. Drake, on the other hand, flexes a little bit differently than most. The rapper debuted his personal jet last summer as he celebrated the Raptors win, among other things.

Taking to Instagram, Virgil Abloh appeared to confirm that he’ll be the one redesigning Drake’s private jet. Virgil Abloh hit the ‘Gram where he shared a sneak peek at some redesigning he’s doing to Drake’s plane in an unknown location. “the tail number is a problem and the FBO is a whole other story,” he wrote. From the look it, Drake’s trying to camouflage in the sky with style as Virgil Abloh added some Nothing Was The Same-type aesthetic to it.
Odell Beckham Jr. is one the biggest sneakerheads in the entire NFL and continues to show f his massive collection on Instagram. He even turned some his favorite shoes into cleats last season and if we are lucky enough, he will do the exact same thing in 2020. In light his love sneakers, Nike gave him a huge deal and have allowed OBJ to give his own unique take on the Nike Air Max 720. One OBJ’s model is a utility-like slip-on fering that has recently been given a new colorway.
As you can see in the ficial images below, the shoe is covered in vibrant blue materials and textures. There is even a black OBJ logo on the tongue and on the insole. Air Max 720 branding is placed on the black heel to let you know exactly what model you are wearing. While it may not be for everyone, this shoe will certainly stand out on your feet when you pair it with a summer outfit.
These are slated to drop on April 1st so be on the lookout at Nike retailers.
LeBron James and the rest the NBA are stuck at home right now through no fault their own. Of course, we’re all at home right now due to the Coronavirus. With LeBron f the court, we haven’t been able to see him in new colorways the Nike LeBron 17. Even with this being the case, Nike has still made it a point to show f new colorways, particularly the new low top version.
The latest fering to be revealed is this “Easter” model. As you can see, the entire upper is covered in creamy beige while the back heel has a blue crown on one foot and an orange crown on the other. These little hints color help make this more an Easter-themed shoe. While many you probably won’t be hitting the court anytime soon, these could certainly be a great cop in preparation for what is to come.
If you want to scoop these up, they will be dropping in Europe on May 16th for $160 USD. A stateside release date has yet to be determined so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Steph Curry has been doing his best to keep busy during the NBA’s Coronavirus hiatus. In fact, earlier this week, Curry did a Q&A with Dr. Anthony Fauci who has been one the leading experts in regard to this pandemic. Just like everyone else, Curry has been at home and is looking to stay isolated from the outside world as we try to curb the spread this virus, once and for all.
Many NBA players have been struggling during the pandemic due to the fact that they don’t have workout equipment at home. Curry hasn’t exactly had to worry about this as his home is well-equipped. According to his trainer Brandon Payne, basketball hasn’t really been on Curry’s mind anyway. In fact, he’s more worried about Cam Newton leaving the Panthers.

“To be honest with you, we’ve talked more about the Carolina Panthers’ quarterback situation than we’ve talked about anything else,” Payne said according to Tom Haberstroh NBC Sports. “We talked a little bit about workouts and what he can do, but it’s not a whole lot right now. Stephen is fortunate because he’s got a larger home with a workout area with some pretty nice equipment in it. He’ll be able to maintain things physically pretty well because he’s got the tools to do so. Some the other guys I’ve been talking to? They’re a little bit more challenged.”
Hopefully, we can see Curry back on the court, sooner than later. He was just starting to get back with the Warriors when this pandemic hit and now, we have been deprived his infamous shot.
It seems like everyone has been tuning into Netflix’s Tiger King this week. Viewers have been hashing out their thoughts surrounding the incarcerated Joe Exotic ever since Netflix debuted the docuseries recently. Joe Exotic’s found some pretty famous supporters, as well, including Cardi B.
Seeing as how she’s been practicing social distancing, Cardi B has clearly had some time to dive into Netflix. Though she admitted on Thursday that she was lost in the second episode because she was having , she clearly caught up on all the details. “Carol you think you slick bitch,” she wrote on Twitter. She later retweeted a fan meme that read, “Carole Baskins fed her husband to the tigers.” That’s been a running theory throughout the series that Carole has denied.
Exotic is currently locked up for allegedly trying to set up the murder Carole Baskin, who serves as the onscreen antagonist in the series. However, Cardi pledged to free the man. She even went as far as vowing to launch a GoFundMe in his honor. “Bout to start a gundme account for Joe .He shall be free,” she wrote. Chances are she’s joking, though, but she clearly got invested in the series.
