Tyga Drops TikTok-Inspired Single ‘Bored in the House’

Tyga has turned his boredom into a quarantine anthem.

Amid the global lockdown, T-Raww unleashes his latest single “Bored in the House,” inspired by the viral TikTok video of him lip-syncing to Curtis Roach’s original song. Tyga takes Roach’s rap and transforms it into a full-fledged twerk slapper, with lyrics drawn from his quarantine experience.

“I need me a thick chick / Sittin’ on the couch and I’m goin’ through my Netflix / Bored than a motherfucker / I ain’t even doin’ shit,” he raps over the bass-heavy beat. “Tell her pull up, make it shake like Nesquik / Neck frozen with nowhere to go, bitch.”

Tyga’s 10-second “Bored in his House” clip has racked up more than 35 million views in just seven days. He also teamed up with Chris Brown for some joint TikTok videos.

“Bored in the House” follows Tyga’s recent “Freak” collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion and his “Ayy Macarena” remake of Los del Río’s hit, which has over 250 million streams.

Tyga can also be seen and heard in the video for Kygo’s new single “Like It Is” featuring Zara Larsson.

Kyrie Irving Shares Fond Memories Of Kobe Bryant

Kyrie Irving was a huge fan Kobe Bryant growing up and when he entered the league, the Los Angeles Lakers legend welcomed him with open arms. They had a solid relationship for years which is why Irving was so distraught when Kobe tragically passed away in a helicopter crash back in January. Since Kobe’s death, multiple players have shared some their favorite stories regarding the legend. Recently, Irving did the exact same thing during an Instagram live session.

Irving spoke about a particular moment in which Kobe dropped 42 on him. What made the game so special was an instance in which Kobe blocked Kyrie and then got the bucket going the other way.

Per Kyrie:

“Kobe had 42 points that game and he guaranteed that he was gonna give us 40. So I get it at the top the key, I hear the crowd and the crowd was like; they;re all erupting silently. They’re like: ‘oh!!’ and everybody starts clapping like: ‘oh yeah!’ and it’s at the top the key. Now what does that remind you ?

Back in the city, back in Jersey, when you get in that moment, this is your time. So I get at the top the key and I make a move, he stutters for a minute and I spin. When I spun, this dude was waiting for that and he punched that shit. He punched it, he punched it bro.”

Irving’s story is yet another example just how great the Black Mamba was. Needless to say, this entire NBA season is dedicated to Kobe.

Lil B Considers Placing ‘BasedGods Curse’ On COVID-19

If there was ever time for a BasedGod Curse — it’s now. As the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc on the world, Lil B is contemplating putting his infamous curse on the insidious virus.

The former Pack MC made the announcement Twitter on Thursday (March 26).

“ALSO I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT ABOUT PUTTING ‘THE BASEDGODS CURSE’ ON THE VIRUS BUT I HAVE BEEN WAITING TO SEE IF ITS AN ACT OF GOD OR IF THE VIRUS IS MAN MADE,” he wrote in all caps. “STAY TUNED.”

Lil B’s wheels are already churning. While speaking to HipHopDX, he revealed he’ll be meeting with a doctor on the frontline soon who can educate him on how to handle the unprecedented situation.

“The curse is as real as the cure,” he tells DX. “I am going to talk to a doctor soon who is with patients that have COVID-19 and get more information if I should put a curse on this virus. Also, I’m going to get more information if this is an act of god or man made. Stay tuned.”

Lil B Considers Placing ‘BasedGods Curse’ On COVID-19

Lil B Permanently Calls Off Curse On Houston Rocket James Harden

Lil B hasn’t issued a curse in awhile. In August 2018, he actually lifted a curse from Houston Rocket James Harden, explaining he’d met with the late Bushwick Bill, J. Prince Jr. and the Rap-A-Lot team.

“Huge announcement, man,” he said on Instagram at the time. “Courtesy of the mob, mob ties, Rap-A-Lot. Hey, James Harden, shout out to Houston. The curse is officially done. Mob ties, they made it happen. Shout out to J. Prince Jr.”

During an interview with DX, he explained how the BasedGod Curse worked — most importantly, BasedGod — not Lil B — is the only one who can issue it.

“Right now, everybody’s good, but Lil B can’t curse,” he said. “The BasedGod curses. I just let folks know. Don’t put the blame on Lil B. No, no, no.”

Yung Berg’s Alleged Attack Victim Granted Restraining Order

A woman who claims she was pistol whipped and held hostage by Yung Berg after the two had in his home has been granted a restraining order against the rapper-producer. Earlier this month, Talia Tilley alleged that Yung Berg, also commonly known by the alias Hitmaka, had hit her across the face with a pistol multiple times. She also accused him holding her hostage and threatening to kill her. She was treated in a hospital following the alleged attack on March 14th, and found out she had suffered a “closed head injury, closed fracture nasal bone, and facial lacerations.” As a result, the LAPD issued her an emergency protective order against Berg, which prevented him from contacting her and coming near or or her home. However, the temporary order expired last Friday, so Talia decided to file for an extension, which the judge has granted her a week later.

The alleged incident went down at Berg’s place at around 5:00am on March 14th. Talia claims he invited her over a few hours earlier, and the two them proceeded to have before she fell asleep. Talia was woken by Berg, who complained that her phone kept ringing. Berg then allegedly began to get violent, slapping her with his pistol and threatening her life. According to her story, she was later let out the house, but Berg and his security guard made her hand over her ID and social security card. She says she fears for her life because he knows where she lives, and she believes he wants her dead.

Berg has vehemently denied these accusations, claiming that he acted in self-defense because Talia was supposedly apart a ploy to rob and kill him. He alleged that Talia was attempting to let in a gang armed robbers to carry out a home invasion, but that they were caught by the security system before they could complete their mission. Talia has denied these home invasion claims. Berg has also accused her making up the story just to get money from him.

Patreon Gains 30,000 Creators as COVID-19 Crisis Rages On

Patreon Gains 30,000 Creators as COVID-19 Crisis Rages On

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic preventing artists in the United States and much of the world from working traditionally, many are attempting to earn a living remotely. And in a testament to the depth of the all-digital movement, subscription-content platform Patreon has gained over 30,000 creators this month.

Patreon enables musicians, podcasters, writers, gamers, and all manner of other professionals to offer content for a monthly fee, and it’s unclear what portion of the 30,000 new creators are in fact artists. However, it seems likely that a substantial number of these individuals specialize in music; virtually all upcoming concerts and music festivals have been called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the majority of recording studios have temporarily closed to comply with government orders.

Notably, British rapper M.I.A. released her first song in three years, “OHMNI20209,” on Patreon earlier this week.

Musicians have also started livestreaming and collaborating remotely to entertain fans—and secure paychecks—during the coronavirus crisis. Miley Cyrus, for instance, has dropped a live program entitled Bright Minded: Live with Miley on Instagram. Each weekday at 11:30 AM Pacific (2:30 PM in the east), Cyrus streams something of a talk show to her more than 100 million followers. Paris Hilton, Reese Witherspoon, Hillary Duff, Ellen DeGeneres, and other prominent celebrities and figures have appeared on Bright Minded.

Yesterday, UK government officials revealed that freelancers and gig employees will be eligible to receive up to 80 percent of their monthly salaries in unemployment benefits. Additionally, the United States’ contains support provisions for those, like artists, who are paid through intermittent fees as opposed to regularly scheduled paychecks.

Countless music-industry organizations, artists, and companies have announced support plans to help musicians cope with the coronavirus financially. The Recording Academy, Spotify, Rihanna, and others, for example, have made multimillion-dollar donations to relief efforts.

Doctors have diagnosed close to 550,000 COVID-19 cases globally, including nearly 100,000 infections in the United States. Earlier today, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed that he’d tested positive for COVID-19. His symptoms have been mild, and he’s self-quarantining and working from home.

R. Kelly Requests Prison Release from Judge Cites Coronavirus Risk

R. Kelly submitted a request to a federal judge for a prison release on bond due to coronavirus.

R. Kelly is awaiting trial for several ual abuse allegations. The singer says the unsanitary conditions at the Chicago federal jail leave him at risk of contracting COVID-19.

Kelly filed the motion on Thursday as a third attempt to get his prison release. He is being held without bond since he was arrested on f. He is in holding at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, a high-rise federal jail in Chicago.

R. Kelly says the social distancing practices recommended by the CDC are “impossible” to practice – he’s seeking prison release.

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons has not confirmed any cases of COVID-19 at the prison. Kelly’s attorney’s nevertheless filed an 18-page motion to get the embattled singer an early prison release on bond.

His attorneys say many inmates have “flu-like symptoms” in the jail and guards are quarantining them as necessary. The motion also says guards are not wearing proper protective gear to prevent infection of inmates.

“No matter what steps they take, the sanitation will be substandard,” the motion reads. “The risk of an internal pandemic at the MCC is great, and if one does get sick – jail healthcare is notoriously substandard,” said Kelly’s lawyer, Steven Greenberg.

“Imagine how poor it will be given the overall lack of resources, even at the best hospitals. Requiring people to reside in a custodial jail setting is tantamount to making them drink poison,” the lawyer argued.

Some countries are freeing their prisoners amid the risk of coronavirus spread.

Iran released 80,000 prisoners as it grapples with the outbreak. In Poland, some prisoners are being sent home to serve the rest of their sentence. Prisons in England and Wales are also canceling visits for the next few weeks in an attempt to control the spread of the outbreak.

LaVar Ball Seen As "Wild Card" In Regards To LaMelo’s Draft Stock

LaVar Ball has become a solidified member the basketball world over the past few years thanks to his various antics. He is typically gassing up his kids to an absolute insufferable degree. I mean, who can forget when he said Lonzo would be a better point guard than Magic Johnson? Now, LaVar’s youngest son LaMelo is poised to go high in the NBA draft although, with everything that is going on with the Coronavirus, there is a chance teams won’t be able to vet him like they wanted to.

With this in mind, LaMelo could actually fall in the draft and it mostly has to do with his father. A GM in the Eastern Conference was speaking to Ric Bucher Bleacher Report and noted that if his team was to draft LaMelo, they would need to have a conversation with him and his father first. Clearly, there are some questions that need to be answered first.

“You’re still going to investigate all that, but I’d want to meet with the kid and the dad, personally,” the general managers said. “The dad is such a wild card.”

For now, it remains to be seen where LaMelo ends up going. With the Coronavirus pandemic picking up steam, there are a lot variables at play leading up to the NBA draft and realistically, no one knows what’s going to happen.

Here’s Why Da Brat Fully Backs Jermaine Dupri’s “Strippers Rapping” Comment

He recalled selling Da Brat her first car when she released her first single “Funkafied” released on Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def imprint in 1994.
