Tekashi69 has been the Internet’s number one topic conversation ever since his controversial Breakfast Club interview. Everyone learned something different from the hour long conversation, but most came away with the idea that 69 is not one the good guys.
Regardless what you think about the Brooklyn native, he has a loyal fan base that actually sees the good buried deep inside him. Just ask DJ Akademiks:
All jokes aside, Tekashi is known for giving back to his community and uplifting young kids, despite the wild boy antics:
He ten tells the story his rough upbringing to let kids know that if he can achieve his dreams, so can they:
Just last year, 69 took a few lucky kids back to school shopping:
He also let’s fans take pics rocking his infamous chain:
Speaking jewelry, 69 even gifted his buddy Ak with a $150,000 chain; which we’re almost certain he took back:
We’re not sure if Tekashi is just a complex kid putting on for social media, or if he’s really a gangster with a good heart.
Over the years, DJ Khaled has been behind some the world’s biggest bangers. Guaranteed to put together dream collaborations, the DJ and producer has rarely disappointed with his last few full-length projects. He is also one the most popular figures in Miami’s music scene. Along with Rick Ross, Khaled is ten seen as an icon in Miami, growing his brand to become a mogul in the last few years. Although he has an abundance Floridian fans and a plethora hits to play, the pre-game crowd at the Miami Marlins game did not understand the hype.
MLB’s regular reason began today with plenty highlight moments already assured to appear on ESPN tonight. In possibly one the biggest fails the regular season opening day, DJ Khaled was slated to perform before the game and attendance was incredibly low. Khaled has previously sold out arenas on tour around the country but fans did not feel the need to get to the stadium early to catch the performance, which was in his beloved hometown. From the looks (and sounds) it, a small chunk the crowd was there to catch the show, with a select few cheering throughout the performance.
We need to congratulate Khaled though since he did not seem deterred by the lack attendance at all, keeping his energy high and continually attempting to rile up the fans that did show up. The performance was broadcasted by Fox Sports, who noticeably avoided showing too much footage the empty seats. Watch the videos below to see what we mean.
For some reason, the man who killed 17 innocent lives at his high school in Parkland, Florida is getting tons fan mail while he’s facing the death penalty at The Broward County Jail. The Sun Sentinel reports that 17-year-old Nikolas Cruz has been flooded with love notes and money from teen girls in different states.
Some the letters include sexual photographs, letters encouragement, greeting cards and more.
“In my 40 years as public defender, I’ve never seen this many letters to a defendant,” Nikolas’ public defender Howard Finkelstein explained. “Everyone now and then gets a few, but nothing like this.” He added: “The letters shake me up because they are written by regular, everyday teenage girls from across the nation. That scares me. It’s perverted.”
The publication got its hands on some the notes and honestly, it’s pretty disturbing.
“You’re in a tough spot, Nik, and that is something I know, because I’ve been there myself,” one person wrote to him. “If you need something, I can mail to you…ask. If you need to talk…I’ll listen.”
“When I saw your picture on the television, something attracted me to you,” an 18-year-old woman from Texas wrote. “Your eyes are beautiful and the freckles on your face make you so handsome.”
Nikolas does not get to see all the letters that have been sent to him. Howard told the publication that they read him the “religious ones that extended wishes for his soul and to come to God.”
Hot f the “Walk It Talk It” video, Migos keeps “Fucking Up Prits.” The trio gets the bag on their new money-making anthem, which was released as part Birdman’s Before Anythang: The Cash Money Story soundtrack.
Over trap-soaked production from Budah Bless, Quavo kicks things f with the chorus. Rhyming about flooded watches, and stuntin’ on haters, Ratatouille delivers a warning to other MCs. “I rap the best, don’t cut it,” he raps. “Gotta make the fiends love it.”
Following his trademark name ad-lib, Offset comes in with a strong statement about the rap game. “Everybody claim they the goat, but these ni**as the sheep,” he raps, while Takef adds, “I can’t go outside, the gang and family need me.”
Before Anythang premiered last month Apple Music and two additional installments are set to follow. “Fucking Up Prits” is a cut f the documentary’s soundtrack, which also features Young Thug, Gucci Mane, and Snoop Dogg.
The internet is going nuts over the news Howard University student, Tyrone Hankerson Jr.‘s financial aid scam. How did he do it? Why? Here’s what we know.
Multiple Howard University employees were fired after a whistleblower uncovered their scheme and blasted them on social media. The employees allegedly stole over a million dollars from the school. Hankerson is accused embezzling $429,000 from Howard’s financial aid while working as a student employee in the financial aid fice. The irony in all this is that he used that stolen money to help him earn a law degree.
Here is Hankerson for reference.
As a student employee in the financial aid fice, Hankerson received tuition remission, which means for the most part he attended college for free. However, he and a few other employees fixed the system so that they could receive grants and scholarships as well. These were grants and scholarships that they didn’t need because they were already going to school for FREE.99!
So, what did Tyrone Hankerson Jr. do with all that money?
He lived his best life.
He bought Gucci bags.
He bought $2600 shearling fur coat (looks more like Snuffleupagus fur but…)
It goes without saying that the internet is having a field day with the discovery Tyrone’s scheme and the results all the things he was paying for. A college student being able to afford Gucci bags and expensive trips definitely looks sketchy. I wonder how he was able to get away with this for so long. Needless to say, Tyrone has released an ficial statement in hopes that he can prove his innocence.
Regardless, Black Twitter is going to get these jokes f and there’s nothing Tyrone Hankerson or anyone at Howard University can do about it.
Still, some students were unable to receive financial aid and thus, unable to attend school because this. Hopefully, justice is served.
Guard your grills, literally. A woman in Wisconsin was arrested earlier this week after shoving a teen McDonald’s employee into the fryer over an incorrect order.
Surveillance footage shows the customer receiving her order at the drive-thru window, but instead receiving the bacon biscuit she wanted, the customer mistakenly received a sausage biscuit. She’s then seen tossing the bagged order through the window and onto a counter before she walked to the restaurant to complain to the manager.
The rest my friends is criminal and viral history.
Mickie D’s should never be that serious. The teen reportedly suffered a bump on the head, but is expected to be fine. Meanwhile, the woman could face felony assault and physical child abuse charges.
Working night and day on her debut album to make sure it ends up exactly as she wants it to be, Cardi B is looking forward to the release Invasion Privacy next week. While the rapper has not ficially dropped an original song in months, that could all change tonight. With one tweet, Cardi had her fanbase going insane as she revealed just enough information to cause a whirlwind anticipation.
Cardi tweeted, “I hope ya up at Midnight ;),” hinting that something is on the horizon. With Rich The Kid dropping tomorrow and a surprise project from The Weeknd, Cardi is going up against stiff competition but the world has been craving to hear more what she has to fer. While the details whatever is happening at midnight are incredibly vague, the songstress has written that she is not referring to the long-awaited music video for “Bartier Cardi.” While there is much speculation surrounding the post, a new single is arguably the most likely option.
She could be referring to anything; it can range from something as elaborate as an early album release to something as mundane as pre-order details. One thing is for sure though, we will be up at midnight to see whatever she has planned. What do you think Cardi B has up her sleeve?
Bow Wow’s been doing a lot lately. Most notably his Twitter rants that started out as a cry for help to his fans that claim to have his back, but apparently don’t defend him when he needs it most. If there’s one person that’s on his side it’s got to be his girlfriend Kiyomi, as Bow is looking to marry the “Wildnout girl” – or may have already?
Being that it’s Kiyomi’s birthday, the Instagram model posted some revealing pics a photo shoot to her feed and Bow Wow commented calling himself her “husband.”
“Happy birthday! I love you so much. Pack your bags I’m taking you out the country for a few days. We’ve done so much in so little time. You deserve everything and as your husband ima make sure that. Baby wait til the world sees your talent. THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU CAN DO. I love you! @kiyomileslie ? aint nothing i wont do for you. I SWEAR YOU AINT EVER BEEN SPOILED THE WAY IM BOUT TO SPOIL YOU.”
He even tweeted the same message with a photo he and his lady.
Considering how public Bow Wow has been about his feelings, it’s hard to think we could have missed (or he didn’t share) the news eloping with Kiyomi. They could also be making it ficial during this surprise trip. The two made their love be known back in January when Bow shared a video to his Instagram with Kiyomi and a caption saying “My girl bad. My bag right. And we upping the standards.”
Darius Bazley, a projected top-10 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, has announced that he is decommitting from Syracuse in order to play in the G League.
Bazley, a five-star recruit and a McDonald’s All American, has told Yahoo Sports that he plans to commit to a rigorous pressional workout regimen in preparation to join current and former NBA players in the G League.
According to Yahoo, players in the G League have base salaries $19,500 or $26,000, and Bazley’s decision to forego the traditional route to the NBA will give the G League its first test in handling a premiere prospect.
He tells Yahoo Sports:
“I’m aware that this might start a trend and that’s one the reasons why I am doing this,” Bazley told Yahoo Sports. “I’m outspoken and I like to speak on things. This is me speaking through my actions, speaking through my character. This is going to happen down the road and become more common. But someone has to start the fire — and I believe I’m going to do that, and it’s very important to me.”
“Whenever I’m at basketball camps, I never hear any discussion about going from high school to the G League. But I believe now, there will be discussion about it. Not only are you getting paid to play the sport you love, but you’re getting the development that you need and want. You don’t have to worry about going to class, and don’t get me wrong, education is important and I’m going to still take classes at my own pace. But I’ll be around NBA games, focus on my body and focus on my development 24/7, without having to worry about anything else. This is strictly basketball. That’s what I want.”
Bazley, 17, is a 6’9 small forward form Cincinnati, Ohio who had fers from Cincinnati, Ohio State, Georgetown, Florida and Syracuse, the school that he committed to last July. 247Sports.com, ranks him eighth overall in the class 2019 and the fourth best at his position in the country.

Earlier this week, a video XXXTentacion hitting a girl in the face surfaced online. Now, the controversial rapper’s camp claims to fear extortion due to the clip’s release.
Sources say that XXXTentacion and the young lady in question made the video as a joke when they were both 15, according to TMZ. They say that she initially agreed to come forward about that. However, she later backed out.
Insiders claim that her grandparents called XXXTentacion’s legal team to ask how they can “make everything good.” They believe the family was after money, according to the report.
However, the alleged victim has a different story. “For those who are questioning why I didn’t come forth earlier,” she wrote on Instagram Stories. “It] was because I was terrified for my life. Imagine someone doing that to u unprovoked.? At 16? Let alone the people he associated himself w/? … I would still be holding on to this secret if it wasn’t leaked.”
XXXTentacion’s lawyer Jaclyn Broudy also addressed the statement. “This ‘terrified’ woman decides to post this video now, conveniently, when XXX] becomes famous,” she said. “Draw your own conclusions.”
The rapper is currently awaiting trial on several charges for allegedly beating his then-pregnant girlfriend in a separate case. But his career hasn’t halted due to controversy. In fact, his sophomore album ? debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this month.
