Freddie Gibbs Celebrity Lookalike Is Iggy Azalea & We Can’t Unsee It

If you’re not following Freddie Gibbs on Instagram, you’ve probably escaped a few mental images that are very hard to remember. His Instagram Story is filled with all sorts debauchery from the depths the Internet’s hell. However, there is also some PG-rated content on it. As you’ve probably seen, there’s been an incline in popularity in the celebrity lookalike app, Gradient. Gibbs was the latest to use it and the results were hilarious.

A lot people would argue that Gibbs looks a lot like Tupac but apparently, the Gradient app didn’t agree. The rapper shared two separate results that suggested he shares physical similarities to pop stars — white pop stars. He first shared one that resulted in showing his facial similarities to Iggy Azalea and another one with Justin Bieber. Like the rest us, Freddie Gibbs was quite confused about how he could possibly look like Justin Bieber or Iggy Azalea, captioning the posts with a simple, “D’fuck?”

Freddie Gibbs is a few months released from his latest project, Bandana with Madlib. The album is undoubtedly a contender for Album Of The Year which is actually the name his forthcoming tour. Gibbs will be hitting the road with Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine, and Cousin Stizz. The tour kicks f in Minneapolis on Nov. 11th. Peep the tour dates here.

According to OK! Magazine, the star was involved in a “serious” car crash over the weekend, getting arrested after attempting to get away with a hit-and-run. The model was reportedly texting and driving at the same time when her Mercedes-Benz SUV hit another car and flipped over. The driver the other vehicle reportedly pulled her out the car but she attempted to flee before the police arrived. She was apparently arrested on two charges but did not spend the night in jail. “She was arrested for the two charges and released on scene,” says the source. “Not booked. She identified herself properly and signed a written promise to appear in court.”

In other Lori Harvey-related news, some her fans believe she was catching lunch with Future yesterday after both celebs were spotted at Nobu in Malibu.

Daz Dillinger & Notorious B.I.G. Forged East/West Alliance In Throwback Pic

The animosity between the East and West coasts is one hip-hop’s most notorious narratives. Kicking f in the early-to-mid nineties, many artists found themselves in the thick it. At the centers were New York’s Bad Boy Records and Los Angeles’ Death Row, helmed by infamous mogul Suge Knight. Some this tension can be examined through the 1995 Source Awards, in which Suge’s disrespect toward Diddy‘s Bad Boy Records reached critical mass. Even artists like Nas found themselves feeling the residual effects, having a tense encounter with Tupac Shakur in 1996

Despite said tension, many artistic alliances formed between coasts, albeit in a behind-the-scenes capacity. Case in point, Death Row’s own Daz Dillinger recently took to IG to share a crossover event for the ages. Though it’s unclear as to when this was taken, it’s certainly legendary to see The Dogg Pound linking up with The Notorious One. In fact, Daz once told VladTV that he and Biggie used to smoke weed together, even teasing a couple collabs in the stash.

True, those songs may or may not ever see the light day. But we’re never unhappy to see a new Throwback pic, especially one that unties two warring factions in such a harmonious way. Gotta love it when Bad Boy and Death Row unify.

The ‘Gram – Congrats are in order for City Girls’ Yung Miami as she gave birth to her daughter on Friday (October 18). She made the announcement on Instagram captioning she was “so happy and blessed.”

The photo showed the newborn named Summer sleeping along with the Grammy-nominated producer Southside, the child’s father and Miami’s boyfriend. Her group member, JT commented, “Auntie snook snook now it’s 3 city girls let’s get it.”

Miami’s pregnancy took a tumultuous turn when she was a victim of a drive-by shooting. Luckily, no one was harmed in the attack. Since then, after much anticipation, JT was finally freed from prison, which brought her and fans of the rap duo much joy.

This is the Florida rapper’s second child; she has a son from a previous relationship. As for Southside, this marks his sixth child. Lil Kim, London On Da Track, LaLa, Quality Control bosses Pierre “Pee” Thomas and Kevin “Coach K” Lee all congratulated Miami in the comment section of her post.

Nas On "Illmatic" Anniversaries: "I’m Tired Of Celebrating It"

Nas career goes back to 1991 but it wasn’t until the release  Illmatic that he made his imprint in the rap game. The album shifted hip-hop for the better and in the past 25 years since it’s release, it’s been regarded as the greatest hip-hop albums all time. This year, Nas celebrated the 25th anniversary the album’s release with another performance with the National Symphony Orchestra. However, it doesn’t look like Nas will actually be partaking in any more anniversary celebrations the album moving forward.

In an interview with Haute Living, Nas actually expressed his true feelings on the legacy  Illmatic. Now, it’s not that Nas doesn’t like the album but he explained that he’s done so much other work that he feels has been overshadowed and outweighed by the success  Illmatic. 

“I’m tired celebrating it,” he said. “I’m grateful, but it has started to take on a life its own. I just did the 20th anniversary with the National Symphony Orchestra five years ago and, the next thing you know, five years go by and it’s a calendar that I didn’t ask for showing me how fast time moves.”

Adding, “Twenty-five years is a lifetime. So I did another Symphony Orchestra show for Illmatic this year; I got another plaque for it. I’m very grateful—it’s so crazy—but to celebrate one album when I’ve made over 10, all the things I’ve worked on—and I’ve been working for so long—to celebrate one album over all else is corny to me. I don’t want to celebrate another Illmatic anything. I’m done. Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for appreciating that record, but it’s over.”

Ja Rule To Bury His Music In Time Capsules In 6 "Regions Of The World"

Ja Rule is working on music videos and visual albums but not for any new music, but rather his old releases that he wants to bring back to life. The 43-year-old “Mesmerize” rapper previously spoke about his plans to rerelease every album he’s created and now he’s got a new plan to create a music time capsule.

“I had a really great idea, you may think it’s crazy, but I’m actually going to make it a time capsule. I’m going to bury it in six different regions the world,” he explained, according to ET Canada. “If the world ends tomorrow, all they’ll have is Ja Rule. That’s the only music they’ll know.” Ja Rule noted how his plan has never been done before by any artist living or dead. 

Speaking his past releases, Ja Rule made it very clear that he would love to accompany Jennifer Lopez onstage during her Super Bowl performance to show love to their past collaborations. “If Jennifer asked me to come to the Super Bowl to perform with her, course I will come. When have I ever not come when she asked to perform with her?” he said.

DaBaby Opens Up About Self-Made Success, Going Pop, & His Father’s Death

DaBaby is on top of the charts and the cover of Billboard.

Fresh off the No. 1 debut of his album KIRK, the 27-year-old Charlotte MC graces the latest issue of the magazine where he opens up about the highs and lows of his personal life and career, including his father’s death, legal battles, and building his brand from the ground up.

His past has also made headlines. In 2018, he shot and killed a man at a Walmart in Huntersville, N.C., claiming that he acted in self-defense. But he’s not losing sleep over it. “From my end, it was unavoidable. It wasn’t my action, it was my reaction,” says DaBaby. “At the end of the day, my family was right there. My daughter. So, hell no. I don’t lose no sleep.”

In addition to collaborating with the likes of Lizzo, Post Malone, and Lil Nas X (he reportedly earns six figures per feature), DaBaby has launched his own independent imprint, Billion Dollar Baby, to which he has signed Stunna 4 Vegas, Rich Dunk, and 704Chop.

And the future continues to look bright. “I’d bet the house on me every time,” says DaBaby. “I do it every motherfucking day—and I ain’t been wrong yet.”

Read highlights from the interview below.

On his father’s passing: “When it happened, I didn’t really have time to grieve. I was getting on the bus to start the tour, and the very next day I found out [he had passed]. So I went straight from seeing him at the damn mortuary to the show — not knowing what the fuck happened, because it wasn’t like he was sick that I knew of.”

On lessons from his past: “Not taking shit personal. Business is business. Do my own thang. Knowing how to deal with people. And just knowing how to move, you get what I’m saying? In the streets, you gotta know how to watch out for the police. But rap is really more dangerous than the streets, for sure.”

On being compared to LeBron James: “It’s just the way I’m set up. Being that once-in-a-generation, once-in-a-lifetime, once-in-an-era type of star. Like I got the creativity of a Kanye [West], the consistency of a Lil Wayne, the versatility of a Drake to make male and female songs. I’m still about whatever, like a [Lil] Boosie or a Gucci [Mane]. I’m God’s work, bro.”

On going pop: “I feel like with me, I can’t ever just go pop. I’m still going to be me. So you can call it pop, but I would change pop. You got pop stars, right? And then you have motherfuckers like Rick James.”

On his self-marketing strategies: “They see how comfortable I am in my skin. It just makes sense. I’ve had myself figured out for the longest [time] — it was getting y’all to figure me out, that was the task.”

On making sure legal issues don’t interfere with his career: “I turn piss into lemonade and put it in a cup with some ice and make a motherfucker drink it.”

Nipsey Hussle and The Game had a very close relationship but ever since the passing the Crenshaw native, many have wondered just how close they actually are. The Game went from posting daily about Nipsey following his passing to dedicating the beginning the week to #MarathonMondays. Recently, The Game announced his new label, Prolific Records, which was inspired by Nipsey Hussle’s face tattoo. However, many didn’t look at it that way.

Immediately after announcing the label and rolling out the merch, which reportedly sold out in half an hour, fans began taking issue with Game using Nipsey’s name for prit. A member All Money In even took to Instagram to blast The Game for even pulling a move like that.

The Game has since posted a lengthy message, not only defending his actions, but making it clear that he hasn’t used Nipsey’s name without the approval from his family, namely Blacc Sam.

“The use the world ‘Prolific’ by myself is the only way helping to carry on my bro’s legacy,” he wrote. “Out love for Nip, Blacc Sam and his immediate family etc. I purposely did not include any pics Nip nor his likeness & directed all traffic to @themarathonclothing as I’ve done since bro’s passing. I’ve spoken closely to ‘Blacc Sam’ every step the way & have had his blessing with things I’ve done to help honor bro’s name and continue his legacy.”

Japanese Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Fan Flies To U.S. To Meet Group, Gets Stranded

You gotta applaud anyone who’s willing to risk it all to make their dreams come true. Unfortunately for a Japanese rapper, his plans to hand Bone Thugs-N-Harmony his CD didn’t end up as planned. According to Fox 8, Ryo Muranaka flew from Japan to America to meet Bone Thugs-N-Harmony in Cleveland. “I thought I could get in the US in exchange for my CD,” Muranka said. “No. No plan. One-way ticket.” Muranka added that he considers Bone Thugs his “heroes.”

Muranka wasn’t met with the welcome in America that he thought he’d receive. It turns out, he ended up getting his luggage robbed and was broke. What’s worse is that he reportedly sold all his belongings in order to travel to America in the first place. He was found by local activists  James Norton and Kwas Bibbs who found him and helped him out a little bit.

With Muranka’s temporary permission to be in the U.S. expired, he’s now getting help from U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rep. Marcia Fudge who are trying to help him find a solution.

However, his trip wasn’t unsuccessful. After catching wind his story, Layzie Bone briefly met Muranka and put him up in a hotel. Later on, Krayzie Bone also heard about the story and reached out.

“I commend him for his determination and passion for what he’s trying to do because I can relate. I’m quite sure he heard our story and how we pursued Eazy-E and this is what inspired him,” Krayzie Bone told HipHopDX. “But I will also say this to other fans and artist that are looking to do the same thing as us or this gentleman did — follow your dreams by all means, but you have to be very careful when you go to places you know nothing about.”

He added, “We’re not from the suburbs, we’re from the ghetto. The area we grew up in is not nice by any means, and I’m just thankful all they took from him was his luggage and not his life because it gets real like that. So, be very careful and have some kind plan.”

Jonah Hill Reportedly Dips From "The Batman" Talks

With Joker continuing to forge an unstoppable path, news its counterpart The Batman is starting to heat up. With the recent development that Zoe Kravitz would be joining Robert Pattison as Catwoman, many began openly speculating on who might take the caped crusader to task. Rumors that Jonah Hill was in the mix to portray Oswald Cobblepot himself, better known as The Penguin, began to shape. And yet, it was not to be. A new report from Complex indicates that while Hill was indeed “in talks,” the Oscar-nominated actor has since bowed out.

Apparently, the talks between Warner Brothers and Hill’s camp “broke down,” though it’s unclear what proved to be the deciding factor. Now that Hill is no longer in the mix, the studio has once again returned to the hunt for their two villains, going so far as to express interest in none other than Seth Rogen. Though negotiations have yet to kick-f, the idea that comedically-inclined actors like Hill and Rogen are being considered is a revealing insight in itself.

Do you think Seth Rogen could take up the Cobblepot mantle? Perhaps the film will feature a subplot centering on Gotham’s black market cannabis industry. Look for the freakin’ bat, as he’s so lovingly referred to in the Arkham games, to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.

Andre Iguodala Comes To LeBron James’ Defense Over China Issue: Watch

LeBron James has been facing a ton scrutiny over the last week due to his lack opinion on the China situation with the NBA. It all started when Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey sent a tweet that showed support for the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. James appeared to scold Morey for putting the players in a compromising position and then went on to say that he didn’t want to get involved in the affairs another country.

Since then, James has been criticized from all sides and now, he is finally receiving some support. During an interview with Hot 97, Andre Iguodala spoke about the China issue and how there seems to be a double standard at play.

“It’s interesting in this situation with China, they’re shoving a camera in our face and be like, ‘No you can’t say no comment we need you to speak on this,'” Iguodala explained. “They ready to attack LeBron for making a statement because they don’t like his statement, they feel like he should have took another stance. But when he’s home and he makes a stance about… and it’s like, ‘No this is not your place to make that statement.’ That was just mindblowing. That’s what bothered me the most.”

Iguodala’s perspective is one that hasn’t been shared thus far so it’s interesting to listen to what he has to say. The former Warriors star certainly makes a great point although, on the flip side, LeBron is a player who has built his brand f being more than an athlete. With that in mind, we expect him to make political statements at this point, so his lack opinion came f as disappointing to many fans.

Snoop Dogg’s Dog Unsuccessfully Shoots His Shot At Megan Thee Stallion’s Dog

Megan Thee Stallion has been all over the place this year. As one  music’s fastest rising stars, people want to know what she’s all about and the best place to find that out is through her social media pages. Right f the bat, you’ll realize that the H-Town Hottie loves to show f her twerking ability. You’ll also peep that she’s friends with a lot the music industry’s hottest talents. Another thing that’s pretty clear through her online presence is the fact that she has an insanely cute dog.

Showing f her pupper 4oe to the world, Megan Thee Stallion is clearly in love with her pooch. We all are. Snoop Dogg‘s pet managed to find his way on social media and, considering the fact that they’re the same breed, he instantly fell in love. Since he doesn’t have thumbs though, he couldn’t send a direct message to Megan for 4oe to see what was good. Instead, the doggo got Snoop to shoot his shot for him but, unfortunately, things didn’t exactly work out.

Sharing a video to his page, Snoop Dogg hilariously spoke for his precious pup, directing the message to Hot Girl Meg. “You wanna holla at Megan Thee Stallion’s dog? Man, Megan Thee Stallion’s dog ain’t fucking with you! You too low-budget cuz, back up,” said Snoop. He went on to add that 4oe isn’t looking for “no old ass n***a like” him. Hilariously enough, Megan responded in the comments, saying that 4oe is down to “go get some girls together.”

Do you think 4oe and Juelz would make a cute dog couple?

Odell Beckham Jr. Claims He’s Open To Playing Second Pro Sport

Odell Beckham Jr. is already one the best wide receivers in football but he seems to be wanting more out his career. As right now, OBJ is struggling on the 2-4 Cleveland Browns who are already reminiscent his New York Giants from just a couple years ago. There isn’t a lot to cheer about when it comes to the Browns and OBJ hasn’t been as good a partner for Baker Mayfield as originally thought.

In a recent interview with Pat McManamon The Athletic, OBJ opened up about the impending lockout in 2020 as the CBA is about to expire. If the league and the players can’t come to a proper solution, we could see a lockout that extends into the season. With that in mind, Beckham says he is interested in pursuing a second sport. In fact, he’s confident he can make it work because “there’s not much that he] wasn’t just naturally good at.”

Based on his statements above, it seems as though OBJ wouldn’t mind pursuing any sport as long as a team wants him. The only sport he probably wouldn’t be great at is hockey considering he’s never shown us his skating ability.

Beckham’s statements are certainly ambitious but probably won’t come to fruition anytime soon. If a lockout does happen, Beckham will most likely be forced to sit out like everyone else.
