Chris Brown’s Daughter Adorably Sings Along To Drake Collab "No Guidance"

Chris Brown is currently on tour to promote his new album but he’s not missing out on seeing his beautiful daughter grow up in front his very eyes. Although he will surely have less time to spend with family as he travels across the country, we’re sure he’ll be fitting in some quality time with his baby when he can. For now, he’s stuck watching videos her on his family’s proper social pages, including this one RoRo singing his most recent hit single.

After Drake and Chris Brown squashed their longstanding beef this year, the two talented artists decided to hop in the studio and create a smash song that would go on to perform numbers on the charts. Anything Drake releases is bound to do well but when you mesh Breezy and Drizzy on the same cut, they’re guaranteed to do some damage. “No Guidance” is one the inarguable songs the summer and Royalty Brown is definitely feeling it. 

She went for a swim with her grandmother when the camera came out, capturing Royalty in her element. Breezy’s mom prompted her to get a move on with her vocals as the song played in the background and she came through, belting out Drake’s verse in her adorable way. If Chris’ daughter isn’t the cutest kid on the planet, then we don’t know what’s good. Watch the video, reposted by a fan page, below.

Kings Announce Results Of Luke Walton Sexual Assault Investigation

According to the Kings press release, Tennant did not to participate in the investigation. As a result her unwillingness to cooperate, and the available evidence, the investigators determined that there was not a sufficient basis to support the allegations made against Walton.

“During the investigation, more than twenty individuals were interviewed, including Coach Walton, and numerous documents and other relevant materials were reviewed. The investigators made repeated attempts to interview Ms. Tennant, but, through her counsel, she declined the opportunity to participate. The investigation is considered closed unless new evidence becomes available.”

Tennant, a former Spectrum SportsNet LA host, filed a lawsuit against Walton for assault, battery, sexual assault and sexual battery, alleging that he forced himself onto her in his hotel room back in 2014. Tennant had told the media, “I thought he was going to rape me.”

The Kings reportedly had no knowledge the allegations before hiring Walton as their next head coach – but they promptly launched their own investigation alongside the NBA after the story surfaced. 

G Perico Announces Partnership Deal With Roc Nation

G Perico’s been a fixture in Los Angeles’ hip-hop scene for the better part the last decade, if not longer. Perico’s done everything as an independent artist, campaigning from a grassroots level to become an underrated hip-hop giant from the West. Today, he released his latest project, Ten Eight but that came along with a huge announcement for the L.A. artist. The rapper’s new project was released from his newly inked partnership deal with Roc Nation.

The expansion the Roc Nation empire expands with the release  Ten Eight. But for G Perico, the deal is deeper than just rap — it’s the principles and cultural impact surrounding Roc Nation that drew G Perico to ink a deal with Big Hov.

“Roc Nation is a big conglomerate, a fixture in the culture. It’s Black owned, Black created. It was created out adversity. Nobody was fucking with JAY-Z, and they turned Roc-A-Fella and eventually Roc Nation] into one the strongest entities] in rap music. I’m coming from a similar situation,” he told Complex. “The conversations make sense, as opposed to me going to another label that’s only focused on the bottom line and doesn’t understand the impact that G Perico has in the streets.”

Now, you might ask why he decided to go that route to sign with Roc Nation when he’s been doing it on his own for the entirety his career. The rapper explained that this deal made sense to him in the long term. Although the deal is currently a two deal project that will also include the release his next project, Broadway which is produced by Terrace Martin.

“It’s more than just a deal or partnership. These are people I can see myself doing business with my entire career in some capacity, even if it’s not music,” he added.

50 Cent Teases His Return To Music With New Song Preview

Street King Immortal is gone. At least, that’s what 50 Cent fans have come to accept as fact. When 50’s musical discography is discussed, the story appears to have ended with Animal Ambition, a project sadly deemed to be his most underwhelming in terms overall quality. Yet hope is not lost. It feels like Fif’s buzz hasn’t been this high in years, with many routinely tuning in to see what the brazen mogul has up his sleeve. As many those loyal fans originally pledged allegiance during his musical heydey, it stands to reason that they’d be more than willing to come full circle.

Luckily, it appears as if 50 is indeed plotting on a return to music. At least, he’s certainly testing the waters. Taking to Instagram, Fif shared a snippet a song he originally made for Power (no surprise there), in order to make them “understand what he wanted to do.” The track, called “Remarkable” harkens back to one his signature vibes; which is to say, the Thug-Luv formula originally explored on “21 Questions.” Off the bat, it’s evocative a simpler time, and should fuel nostalgic vibes in any tried-and-true 50 fan.

Now, the idea him releasing a full album certainly feels like wishful thinking. Yet maybe, should the response to “Remarkable” prove overwhelming, Fif will see the light and return to the booth. Would you be down for a new project from the G-Unit capo?

Saweetie is burning up the charts with her summer anthem “My Type.”

Now she recruits two boss babes, Jhené Aiko and City Girls’ Yung Miami, for the London On Da Track-produced remix.

The “ICY GRL” herself also delivers a brand new verse.

“My Type,” which can be found on Saweetie’s ICY EP, is currently No. 33 on the Hot 100. Saweetie has hinted that this is just the first of more remixes to come.

Re-up with the remix below.

Aretha Franklin Died With More Than $1 Million In Uncashed Checks

Just when you thought the fight over Aretha Franklin’s assets couldn’t get any stickier.

As Aretha Franklin’s sons c, there’s this.

A court audit has now revealed that The Queen of Soul had about $1 million worth of uncashed checks in her possession when she passed away.

Franklin’s August 2018 passing saddened the music world, and countless artists, public figures, and fans mourned the loss of one of history’s most versatile and capable singers. Behind the scenes, however, the stage was being set for Franklin’s children to become embroiled in a vicious dispute over her estate.

A court battle over who will receive Franklin’s funds and handle the estate’s long-term management is threatening to last for years.

It initially seemed that Aretha Franklin hadn’t written a will at all; her assets would have then been evenly distributed amongst her children.  After her passing, though, three handwritten wills were discovered under a pillow in her Detroit home.

The most recently written of these wills placed control of the estate with her youngest son, Kecalf Cunningham. The problem was that Aretha’s vast estate had previously been managed by Sabrina Owens, Franklin’s niece.  Another son, Theodore White II, with Owens.

The uncashed checks (one of which is worth more than $700,000) appear to have greatly angered Aretha Franklin’s four sons, each of whom has retained a legal team.

These sons released statements through their legal teams that indicated their overall dissatisfaction with the fact that it took so long to determine exactly how much money — and which possessions — Aretha Franklin had at the time of her death.

It’s not uncommon for family members to fight over a deceased loved one’s assets, though this legal battle is noteworthy in that the winner will have control of Aretha’s deals for many years to come.  Song licenses, royalty agreements, and a long list of lucrative opportunities are handled by the manager of an estate.

History suggests that this dispute won’t end in the near future, but here’s to hoping that the Franklin children are able to put their differences aside and make a deal that works for everyone.  The sooner Aretha Franklin’s estate is competently managed by one or more individuals, the better Aretha Franklin’s legacy can be maintained.

Though given the state of affairs, that’s probably wishful thinking.

Get Ready for AirPods With Noise Cancellation and Water Resistance

Apple is prepping a refresh of its iconic AirPods line amid new phones and tablets.

Apple is planning to unveil at least three new iPhones at an event next month. Sources familiar with the company’s plans say the new phones will go on sale in September.  Alongside that push, Apple is rumored to be launching several new product refreshes, including AirPods with noise cancellation and water resistance.

Bloomberg’s sources say you should expect a refreshed iPad Pro, entry-level iPad, new Apple Watch, and a revamped MacBook Pro.  Also among the refreshed items are AirPods and the HomePod smart speaker.

On the laptop side, Apple is now under pressure to give its laptop users a better solution than the butterfly switches.  On the mobile end, Apple is rumored to be planning on copying the reverse-charging feature Samsung built into its devices.  As a result, the latest version of AirPods will be able to charge in-case, simply by setting the case on the back of one of the new iPhones.

The new AirPods model is rumored to be more expensive than the current $159 model.

Other new features will include water resistance and noise cancellation. Sources did not include a specific launch date for the new AirPods other than “by next year.

The HomePod will also get a refresh due to the poor sales performance of the current model. Apple severely lags behind the competition in the smart speaker category.  , but both Google and Samsung have carved out a niche. So far, the HomePod has only captured about 6% of the smart speaker market share in the United States.

Incidentally, Apple just introduced a in March, featuring Siri support and longer battery life.  But that’s more of an incremental update.

Despite all the new product reveals, Apple is increasingly relying on its subscription models. iPhone revenues have dropped year over year as devices have launched with fewer exciting new features.  That, coupled with general market saturation, has forced Apple to reinvent into subscriptions — and double down on platforms like Apple Music.

The man involved in a bar dispute with UFC superstar Conor McGregor recently spoke with the Irish Daily Star to give his side the story – and to make it clear that he’s 50, not 60, as some outlets previously reported.

The victim, who opened up on the condition anonymity, explained that he thinks McGregor swung on him at the Marble Arch Pub in Dublin, Ireland on April 6 because he turned down a shot McGregor’s Proper No. 12 Irish Whiskey.

“He is a bit a bully, a bully with money … I’m glad people saw the video. I don’t like him.”

“Look-it, I can take a punch,” he told the Irish Daily Star.

 

The surveillance footage shows McGregor pouring Proper No. 12 for several bar patrons, and then taking a swig himself, before hitting the elderly man upside the head with a swift left hand.

Lil Tjay’s "Arrest" Was Part Of A Music Video All Along

Looks can be deceiving. Especially in an era where cameras are at an all-time high and context is at an all-time low. Case in point, a recent clip that found rising rapper Lil Tjay getting arrested and shoved into a police car, all while surrounding fans get good and riled up. Despite the seeming authenticity the clip, made all the more effective by some going hard with the trash talk, some were quick to sniff out a hoax. Well, not a hoax per se, but rather part an upcoming video.

Today, a scene from the finished project has surfaced, as put forward by Tjay himself. The conceptual, narrative-based video adds another layer to “F.N,” and looks to be his most cinematic drop thus far. You can check it out below and see for yourself. Given that many already concluded the clip to be part something bigger, it’s hardly enough to warrant a sigh relief. On the plus side, it does reveal a visionary aspect to Tjay’s character, which plants the seed for longevity to come.

Are you looking forward to watching the “F.N.” clip in full? Check back tomorrow for the ficial release.

Aaliyah’s Brother Delivers Powerful Homage At Wax Figure Unveiling

Hip-hop has never forgotten Aalyiah, an enduring talent taken too soon in a tragic plane crash. In honor preserving her memory, Madam Tussauds recently commissioned a wax figure the icon, and unveiled it last night to a packed house. Standing beside the lifelike figure was her brother Rashad Haughton, who took a moment to deliver a powerful homage to his sister’s memory.

“To capture the beauty, unique style, and grace my sister was no easy task,” explains Rashad. “And everyone involved did an extraordinary job, as you can see, right? It’s amazing. My sister is famously quoted as saying, and I paraphrase, that she was only in competition with herself. You guys all know that quote. I think we can all agree that she chose some really tough competition.”

“Some you in this room knew her personally or had the chance to meet her and experience that special quality,” he continues. “Others could see it radiating through the screen in her videos, films, and interviews. This special quality I’m talking about was my sister’s humility. Being kind and so down to earth is what drew people to her. The ability to treat everyone around her like stars. And let them shine just like her was incredible. Each and every one you in this room are stars, I want to let you know that. I want to thank you from the bottom my heart for being here.”

6ix9ine Fears for Family’s Safety as Trial Nears

6ix9ine is fearing for his life as his trial nears.

The 23-year-old rapper, who has been behind bars since November on federal racketeering charges, is expected to testify next month about the kidnapping and assault he claims he fell victim to in 2018.

Cops arrested a suspect in the case, Anthony Ellison, who pled not guilty and says Tekashi is lying. Ellison, a former member of Tekashi’s management team, allegedly has ties to the Nine Trey Bloods, the same gang Tekashi was affiliated with prior to his arrest.

According to TMZ, Tekashi will testify in open court against his alleged kidnappers including Ellison with the fear that it could make his family members targets of gang retaliation.

The ramifications for testifying could be serious. Sources tell TMZ that 6ix9ine is “crapping his pants over testifying” and fears for his own life as well as the safety of his mother and brother.

He has already spent thousands on security to protect his mom, but still feels that his loved ones are vulnerable if the Nine Trey Bloods want to seek revenge for snitching. As part of his plea deal, he’s required to cooperate with the feds and must testify unless Ellison and prosecutors strike an 11th-hour deal.

Tekashi was facing 47 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to nine federal charges, but his girlfriend Jade recently hinted that he could be released in as early as six months.

The rainbow-haired rapper has received backlash from some in the hip-hop community for snitching. Snoop Dogg and the late Nipsey Hussle have both made reference to his case. “Can’t name a fake ni**a that was not exposed,” raps Nipsey on Rick Ross’ “Rich Ni**a Lifestyle.” “How y’all ni**as so surprised that Tekashi told? / Ain’t a real street ni**a ‘less you got a code.”

The "DMX Challenge" Is Taking Social Media By Storm & Fans Are Loving It

You know we can’t go a full week without a social media challenge, and thankfully, this one doesn’t require vegetables. DMX fans, specifically black women, wanted to celebrate the many ways they switch up their hairstyles. They decided to do so with the New York rapper as their soundtrack as they decided to draw inspiration from DMX’s 2000 Sisqo-assisted single, “What These B*tches Want” from his 1999 album, …And Then There Was X.

On the song, DMX lists f names women that he’s encountered or dated: “There was Brenda, LaTisha, Linda, Felicia / Dawn, LeShaun, Ines, and Alicia / Teresa, Monica, Sharron, Nicki / Lisa, Veronica, Karen, Vicky / Cookie, well, I met her in a ice cream parlor / Tonya, Diane, Lori, and Carla / Marina, Selena, Katrina, Sabrina / About three Kims, LaToya, and Tina / Shelley, Bridget, Cathy, Rasheeda / Kelly, Nicole, Angel, Juanita / Stacy, Tracie, Rohna, and Ronda / Donna, Ulanda, Tawana, and Wanda.”

In the challenge, black women have carefully placed together photos or video clips themselves wearing various hairstyles when each name is stated, suggesting that they’re a different person for every look. It’s one the tamer challenges that has made the rounds on the internet as late and it seems that it’s an unproblematic way for some to get wrapped up in their vanity and deliver a handful selfies. Check out a few highlights below.
