Ronda Rousey Unsure Of WWE Future: "We Want To Have A Baby First"

Ronda Rousey recently invited her fans to Browsey Acres, where she and her husband, Travis Browne, seem to be enjoying the time away from WWE.

The duo have made it clear that they’re trying to start a family  their own, meaning Rousey will be out the ring for an extended period time. In fact, Rousey revealed that she won’t truly know her future in WWE until after the baby is born.

As seen in the video embedded below, Rousey discussed her plans to have a baby and provided an update on the broken pinky she sustained while flipping over a table during the main event Wrestlemania 35.

“As for WWE plans in the future, we want to have a baby first. I don’t know what it’s like to have a baby,” Ronda said (H/T TMZ Sports).

“I could look down at this beautiful child and be like ‘f*ck everything, I don’t care about anything else other than this baby.’ And, you’ll never see me again.”

“Or, I could be like my mom, who she trained while she was 8 months pregnant and then won the U.S. Open judo] 6 weeks after giving birth. Which was unbelievable.”

“I don’t think I’m going to try and aspire to her level. But, I’m just saying, you never know, I don’t want to make any promises about the future when I don’t know how I’m gonna feel in the future.”

#DXCLUSIVE: Marcel P. Black Condemns Donald Trump In "Hallelujah" Video

Marcel P. Black has revisited his Seven EP to provide some visuals for the standout track “Hallelujah.” The politically-charged video utilizes imagery from the infamous Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and denounces Donald Trump.

“I released ‘Hallelujah’ in the fall of 2017, and it quickly became a fan favorite due to its hard-hitting production and anti-Trump content,” Black tells DX. “I’ve had people all over the country from Oakland to Maine to Minnesota to Nebraska screaming ‘Fuck Donald Trump!’ at the top of their lungs.

“So last fall when I had the opportunity to route through Charlottesville, Virginia, where the Unite The Right rally a.k.a. Tiki Torch Race Riots were held in 2017, I jumped at the opportunity to shoot a video for this song there. The video was shot on location in Downtown Charlottesville by Alex C. Brown.”

Scrapp DeLeon Talks Non-Relationship With Moniece Slaughter & Praises Tommie Lee

VH1 viewers are currently watching Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Mona Scott-Young and friends document Scrapp Deleon’s release from prison and acclimation back into society. However, fans were thrown a curve ball when they saw Tommie Lee’s ex-boyfriend cuffed up with L&HHATL newcomer Moneice Slaughter, someone who has previously been linked to Rich Dollaz from Love & Hip Hop New York, AD Diggs from Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, and, course, the father her son Lil Fizz from B2K and Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.

Scrapp spent his Easter weekend partnering with T.I. to post bail for 23 non-violent fenders, but he took some time out to chat with the Domenick Nati Show about his ties to Moniece and Tommie. When asked about the seriousness his relationship with Moniece, Scrapp said they’re just friends who were enjoying some benefits.

“Me and Moniece are really good friends. We’re really good friends at this current moment. I don’t think I’m gonna be proposing to anyone anytime soon. I mean, I would love to get married. It’s definitely on my bucket list as something I wanna do and I look forward to doing. It’s just I don’t see it as being next month or next week…We were never in a committed…relationship. We had an understanding. I like you, you like me, we did things that couples do, you know. You know how it goes, Domenick. Don’t act like you don’t know,” he said while laughing.

When it came to Tommie and her recent child abuse charges that could put her away for 50 years, Scrapp said he never witnessed his ex lay a hand on her children. “What’s actually crazy is that when I heard about those charges, I was completely shocked because me and Tommie were together at one point. I’ve never even seen Tommie whoop her children. The most she may do is threaten to whoop ’em or just holler at them, but Tommie takes really good care her kids. They love her to death. She actually spoils them. I think Tommie’s a really good mom. When I heard those charges I was like, ‘Nah, not Tommie’.”

“I’ve never seen any signs that,” he continued. “To be honest, I actually just wrote a character letter for her and just sent it to her lawyer just yesterday. Just speaking highly about her and the person that I know she is and things that nature. I don’t want her to get convicted. I don’t think she’s gonna get convicted. I’m rooting for the win for her.

Check out Scrapp’s entire interview, including what he had to say about Kodak Black talking recklessly, below.

Lil Uzi Vert’s "Sanguine Paradise" & "That’s A Rack" Earn Him Big Charting Week

Even though a trio new songs by Lil Uzi Vert have arrived in recent weeks, there is still an air mystery surrounding his immediate future in the music industry and the imminence Eternal Atake. DJ Drama and Don Cannon have seemingly been working against the artist, who has fought back with ficial releases after both songs were leaked online. Uzi’s strategy ended up paying f, even with minimal promotion, because both have ficially debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Sanguine Paradise” performing best out the two.

According to Chart Data, the upcoming edition the Billboard Hot 100 will see the introduction both new Lil Uzi Vert songs. The two tracks, which were produced by the Working On Dying collective, squeezed into the mix this week with “That’s A Rack” hitting No. 76 and “Sanguine Paradise” reaching No. 28. The latter showcases an impressive start for the artist but considering how long it’s been since the last Uzi single, we can’t say we’re surprised to see both songs hitting the charts. 

Do you think the two songs have already peaked or do you see one or both them continuing to creep up? Which is your favorite the two?

Kanye West Debuts New Song ‘Water’ at Coachella Sunday Service

Yeezus rises again.

Kanye West brought his Sunday Service to Weekend 2 of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Easter morning (April 21). Thousands lined up starting at 6 a.m. for the spiritual-themed performance, which took place on a “mountain” in the camping area of the festival grounds in Indio, Calif. and was streamed live on YouTube.

A purple-haired West led the gospel choir and band, dressed in oversized purple sweatpants and sweatshirts, through the 90-minute set, which kicked off around 45 minutes after its 9 a.m. start time. The livestream was broadcast through a fisheye peephole and showed an aerial shot of the hilltop stage, which resembled an eye.

Surrounded by collaborators including Ty Dolla $ign, Kid Cudi, and Chance the Rapper, West opened with a mix of “Ultralight Beam” / “Ultralight Prayer” intertwined with the gospel song “How Excellent” before delivering gospel-inspired renditions of hits including “Power,” “Otis,” and “Fade,” mixed with classics like Stevie Wonder’s “As,” Soul II Soul’s “Back to Life (However Do You Want Me),” and Kirk Franklin’s “Brighter Day.”

Teyana Taylor belted out her K.T.S.E. track “Never Would Have Made It” and Chance the Rapper delivered his verse on “Ultralight Beam.” DMX preached to the crowd with a powerful spoken word, which brought West to tears.

Kanye, who joined Kid Cudi on stage in the Sahara tent the prior night, smiled but didn’t say much until the end, when he rapped on “All Falls Down” and the closer “Jesus Walks.”

Sunday Service also saw the debut of a new song called “Water,” which includes the refrain “We are water.” The spiritual song also includes the lyrics, “Let your light reflect on me / Take the chlorine out of conversation.” It’s unclear if the song will appear on Kanye’s upcoming album Yandhi.

Kanye’s family and friends were in attendance for the Easter Sunday performance, including Kim Kardashian and their daughter North West, along with Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, 2 Chainz, and La La Anthony.

Merch aka “church clothes” were available for purchase, including $225 “Holy Spirit” sweatshirts, $75 ponchos, $50 “Jesus Walks” socks, and $70 “Trust God” T-shirts that said “Sunday Service at the Mountain” on the back. The items are also available online at shop.kanyewest.com.

Jimmy Butler, Jared Dudley Fined For Roles In Game 4 Fight

Philadelphia 76ers shooting guard Jimmy Butler and Brooklyn Nets forward Jared Dudley won’t be suspended for their roles in the fight that took place during Game 4 in Brooklyn on Saturday. However, Butler and Dudley have been issued fines – Dudley was fined $25,000, while Butler received a $15,000 fine. 

The incident occurred roughly halfway through the third quarter the Sixers’ 112-108 victory over the Nets on Saturday. Dudley and Butler were both ejected, while Joel Embiid was hit with a Flagrant 1. 

According to Tom Moore  the Bucks County Courier Times, Embiid says he’ll be paying Butler’s fine.

“I’m going to pay the fine,” Embiid said after Saturday’s game, per Tom Moore.

Embiid also shared his thoughts about Jared Dudley after the Sixers secured a 3-1 series lead.

“First all, he’s a nobody,” Embiid told TNT Dudley. “And when opponents try to do stuff like that, that’s just to get us out the game. Especially, I’m too valuable for my team. That’s why I didn’t react. I did not do anything and I did not think that was a flagrant foul because I played the ball, too. But in that type situation I just got to stay composed and be mature.”

Game 5, taking place at Wells Fargo Center, is scheduled to tipf at 8:00pm ET on Tuesday night.

Blazers’ Jusuf Nurkic Chirps Russell Westbrook After Pivotal Game 4

Damian Lillard outdueled Russell Westbrook yet again in Game 4 on Sunday night, as the Portland Trail Blazers picked up a 111-98 victory in OKC to take a commanding 3-1 series lead. 

After the game, in which Westbrook was 0-7 with just one point in the second half, Blazers’ center Jusuf Nurkic took a jab at Westbrook twitter. 

Westbrook scored 14 points on 5–21 shooting with nine rebounds and seven assists, but he simply could not buy a bucket down the stretch. According to ESPN, the All Star point guard missed his last 10 shots.

“Sometimes you have nights like that,” Westbrook said. “That happens sometimes. But it just wasn’t good enough for us to get the win.”

Meanwhile, Lillard connected on 5–7 shots in the third quarter, which allowed the Blazers to take control the pivotal Game 4.

“I didn’t feel the need to get overly aggressive in the first half, once I saw how the game was going,” Lillard said. “But then in the third, I felt like that was the time when we needed to hit the gas.”

CJ McCollum led the Blazers with 27 points, and Al-Farouq Aminu chipped in 19 points with nine rebound. The series now shifts back to Portland on Tuesday night, as Lillard, McCollum and co. look to close out the series in Game 5.

George Zimmerman Kicked Off Tinder For Posing Under Fake Identity

In what has to be the least expected update concerning George Zimmerman’s civil status, Creative Loafing is reporting that he’s been given the boot by popular online dating platform Tinder for operating under a fake name.

Zimmerman was famously acquitted murdering Trayvon Martin, causing him to become a virtual “enemy the state” for taking his civic duties to a whole other level bigotry. The Tampa-based periodical claims that Zimmerman listed “himself” on Tinder as a self-employed consultant seeking quote-unquote “carefree fun,” as well as a partner to share in his love  camping and outdoorsy activities.

“At Tinder, we take our users’ safety very seriously and our team has removed this prile from our platform,” a spokesperson for Tinder told the Washington Post once the news had come to light. “We utilize a network industry-leading automated and manual moderation and review tools, systems and processes — and spend millions dollars annually to prevent, monitor and remove bad actors who have violated our Community terms and guidelines.”

It’s not readily known whether the false identity Zimmerman created on Tinder had any effect on the dating pool within his geo-network. A similar situation occurred late last year when Bumble forced him f their platform as well, citing the same old ruse a false identity. I gather it’s pretty hard to get a date when most people know you as a cold-blooded murderer, and rightly so.

The Essential "Wake & Bake Playlist" For All Your 420 Needs

The ancient wisdom bunning weed isn’t lost on the hip-hop faithful, and thankfully so. Every 420, the ardent smokers within our community become shamans for one-day-only.

This year’s Spotify submission retains much the irrevokable material from past issuances (this is our 3rd-year serving this public need).
