Diddy & Gina Huynh Share Kisses In Instagram Video

In February, internet sleuths shared that Diddy may have moved on from his breakup with Cassie and found himself a new woman. At the time, LoveBScott reported that the hip hop mogul was spending time with Gina Huynh at the Super Bowl, a woman who they report was the reason behind Diddy and Cassie taking a brief break back in 2015. As Cassie has been steadily sharing images her new relationship with Alex Fine, it looks as if Diddy, too, has moved on and found another love.

While Diddy hasn’t confirmed anything, Gina shared clips herself cuddled up close with her alleged man. In one video, she smiles for the camera as he sticks his tongue out before she turns and gives him a kiss. In another, they have fun with SnapChat filters and in a third, they both rock reflective sunglasses as they pose for the camera.

For months, the only woman Diddy has spoken about is Kim Porter, the mother four his children. He’s talked openly about Porter being the love his life and has said that he played himself by not marrying her. Meanwhile, TheJasmineBrand reports that Gina also once dated Floyd Mayweather.

Netflix Raises Its Prices Again — This Time In the UK

Netflix just announced that UK users’ monthly subscriptions fees will be increasing.

Amazingly, Spotify hasn’t raised its prices in more than a decade, citing extreme price sensitivity and competition from similar services.  Netflix, however, has been aggressively hiking its fares, spurred partly by its differentiation.

Netflix UK’s two-device plan will now cost £8.99 ($11.36) —up from £7.99 ($10.10). The barebones package (one device, no HD) will still be available for £5.99 ($7.57), but the ultra-HD package, which provides 4K and allows for up to four individuals to use a Netflix account simultaneously, will cost £11.99 ($15.16) — two more pounds than before.

While an exact timetable hasn’t been set for the price increases to go into effect, it’s expected that most existing UK subscribers’ scheduled payments will reflect the new rates. All new UK customers will pay the heightened rates upon signing up.

It can be hard to put a positive spin on price increases.  But Netflix UK subscribers have it better than US customers, who started paying a higher rate in January of this year (and who saw the cost of subscriptions increase several times before that).

Moreover, it isn’t difficult to see where these funds are going.  The streaming platform has kicked its content-creation and license-buying efforts up during the last two years. There are more original Netflix programs being made now than there have been at any other point in the company’s history — even with a record-breaking 2018 in the books.

Additionally, Netflix has partnered with big-name actors, studios, and networks as part of an effort to produce world-class content.  Ricky Gervais and the stars of The Inbetweeners — who are very popular in the UK — currently have exclusive agreements with Netflix.  The BBC regularly partners with the digital-streaming giant. Global demand for the work of famed director Martin Scorsese has long been strong, and UK subscribers will be able to watch his upcoming film, The Irishman, which Netflix funded for an estimated $200 million (about £158 million).

And so, the Netflix UK price hike is bittersweet.  Bitter because, well, who likes paying more for something?  It’s sweet, however, because subscribers will gain access to even more quality content.

Meek Mill & REFORM Take First Major Legislative Action For Probation Reform

Ever since Meek Mill‘s release from prison, he’s been working towards bringing reform to the justice system. As you know, he’s been on probation for the better part his adult life because Judge Genece Brinkley. Along with Van Jones, Michael Rubin, Jay-Z and Robert Kraft, they’ve been working towards bringing change for probation and parole laws. Today, REFORM Alliance teamed up with bipartisan bill sponsors Rep. Jordan Harris and Rep. Sheryl Delozier to introduce the Smart Probation and Parole act to the legislature for consideration.

REFORM has introduced their first major legislative action towards probation and parole reform. The Smart Probation and Parole Act is meant to:

  1. Incentivize good behavior and rehabilitation for people on probation and parole.
  2. Reverse damaging measures that led to Pennsylvania having the third highest percentage its citizens on probation and parole in America.

The current component the Smart Probation and Parole act includes.

  • Setting standards for probation term lengths according to the crime (2 years for misdemeanors, 5 years for felonies)
  • Standardizing “good time credits” in exchange for certified rehabilitative programming, i.e. GED courses and vocational training
  • Minimizing the types technical violations for which an individual can be re-incarcerated
  • Increasing due process and effective communication when someone is suspected a technical violation
  • Retroactive application for all components

“I’ve been on probation in Pennsylvania my entire adult life, for over a decade. Every aspect my life is restricted,” Meek said. “We need to pass HB1555 and make sure individuals in Pennsylvania never experience confining and oppressive barriers that make it nearly impossible to re-enter society, travel to a job or even provide for their families.”

Wiz Khalifa Amazes Joe Rogan With How Much Weed He Smokes

Is there really any guest who would deny Joe Rogan an appearance on his podcast? The much-beloved podcast host had hip-hop fans wagging at the mouth for a possible Kanye West episode, although the absence such a podcast sounds like it’s more because Joe Rogan doesn’t feel as though Kanye is in the right place mentally right now to even do it– it’s more a Joe lack–desire than a Kanye one, perhaps. The guy did just go on David Letterman’s new Netflix show, after all.

Nonetheless, if you’re one Joe’s millions subscribers, you woke up this morning to a new episode in your Podcast library that features none other than Wiz Khalifa. We all know that Joe Rogan smokes a blunt or two from time to time, although, when put in the presence Wiz, that’s light work. The rapper divulges he smokes an ounce a day, in comparison to Joe’s paltry one-joint (maybe) a day. This revelation leaves Joe shook.

The unlikely pair don’t stay on the topic marijuana and related drugs for too long though, although Wiz does reveal that Amber Rose is using CBD to help cope with her pregnancy pains. As anyone knows if they’ve seen Wiz on Instagram this past year, the rapper has gone through quite a physical transformation. The two bond over Muay Thai discussions, talking about where and how they train, with Wiz detailing how training in Muay Thai has helped him beyond just the obvious physical aspects. Khalifa discusses his current health protocol, which involves meal prep (for inquiring minds, he does confirm “I’m single” on the podcast, and thus there is no lady at home to cook him meals), as they delve further into fitness talk.

In true Joe Rogan fashion, the conversation spans more than two hours. There is plenty to sink your teeth in here, watch below and enjoy.

R. Kelly Charged with 11 New Counts of Sexual Abuse

R. Kelly is facing more charges.

On Thursday (May 30), an Illinois grand jury indicted the R&B superstar on 11 new charges in his sexual assault and sexual abuse case, including four new felonies that carry maximum penalties of 30 years in prison, reports CNN.

The new charges include four counts of aggravated criminal sex assault, three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim between the ages of 13 and 16, two counts of criminal sex assault by force, and two counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse, according to CBS News.

Eight of the alleged incidents occurred between January 1, 2010 and January 31, 2010. The three other incidents allegedly took place between May 1, 2009 and January 31, 2010.

Kelly’s attorney says his client has been recharged in his existing case involving the same alleged victim. “These are the same conduct, just charged differently, same alleged victim, same time frame, same facts. We expect the same results,” tweeted Steve Greenberg.

Prior to this, the 52-year-old singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He was accused of abusing four women, three of whom were underage at the time of the alleged events.

Kelly has maintained his innocence. In March, he told “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King that the abuse allegations are lies and that he is the victim of a smear campaign. “I didn’t do this stuff,” he said during the explosive interview. “This is not me. I’m fightin’ for my fu**in’ life.”

Kevin Durant To Return Midway Through NBA Finals: Report

Two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant is reportedly expected to make his return to the Warriors lineup “at some point midway through the NBA Finals,” according to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes. Durant is reportedly considered a long shot to suit up for Game 2 on Sunday night.

Haynes notes: “There’s some optimism within members the organization that a Game 3 arrival could be ble, but there’s a stronger possibility that Game 4 is the most logical option, sources said.”

Durant, who travelled with the team to Toronto, has not played since suffering a mild calf strain during Game 5 the Western Conference Semifinals against the Houston Rockets. The 10-time All Star is averaging 34.2 points per night to go along with 5.2 rebounds and 4.9 assists in the playfs

The Warriors had won six straight without KD but they dropped Game 1 the NBA Finals Thursday night in Toronto, as everyone not named Steph Curry or Klay Thompson struggled to put the ball in the basket. Curry finished with a game-high 34 points while Klay chipped in 21, but Golden State’s next highest scorer was Draymond Green, who finished with 10, 10 & 10.

Meanwhile, Toronto had three players score 20+, including Pascal Siakam who led the way with 32, in addition to Fred VanVleet’s 15 f the bench. Game 2 the NBA Finals is set for Sunday night at 8pm ET, airing on ABC.

Draymond Green Downplays Post-Game "Scuffle" With Drake

Drake has thrust himself right in the middle the NBA Finals discussion, just as he did during the Toronto Raptors series with the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals. Drake trolled the Warriors both during and after the team’s Game 1 victory, which included picking some lint out Stephen Curry’s hair, doing his “Hotline Bling” dance after Klay Thompson was hit with a technical, and calling Draymond Green “trash” as the teams left the court.

When asked about his post-game “scuffle” with the Raptors’ global ambassador, Draymond downplayed the incident, saying he wouldn’t really consider it a scuffle.

“It wasn’t really a scuffle because I didn’t hit him and he didn’t hit me, or I didn’t push him or he didn’t push me,” Green said. “We talked; we barked a little bit. But I wouldn’t necessarily consider it a scuffle. It wasn’t] what I personally would consider a scuffle.”

Prior to the start the NBA Finals, Draymond was asked how he would deal with Drizzy’s sideline shenanigans. His response:

“Drake can’t shoot,” Green told reporters on Thursday. “Nor can he pass.”

“You ever seen Drake play basketball?” he added. “I saw a couple highlights. It wasn’t so hot.”

Game 2  the NBA Finals, airing on ABC, is set to tipf at 8pm ET on Sunday night. 

Drake Received His "Air Drake" Private Jet For Free: Report

If these new reports are to be believed, Drake didn’t flex and purchase his “Air Drake” private jet for himself. Earlier this month, Drake showed f his new luxury ride: a 767 jet that reportedly retails for about $200 million. Few people questioned how the hip hop mogul could afford the luxury airliner because it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to believe that the rapper had those kinds stacks in his bank account.

However, TMZ is stating that they’ve learned Drizzy didn’t put down a dime for “Air Drake” at all. According to the publication, Cargojet, a Cana-based airline that made the plane, gifted the rapper with the private jet. It’s their belief that the publicity surrounding “Air Drake” will create enough revenue that the plane will eventually pay for itself. This would be one helluva deal if it’s true and one has to wonder how many other artists can capitalize f such an arrangement.

TMZ goes on to say that all Drake has to do is travel around the world while showing f his personalized private jet, something that shouldn’t be too difficult for a world-touring rapper. Following the Toronto Raptors’ win against the Milwaukee Bucks, Drake immediately jetted to the Bahamas where Page Six reports he was seen kicking back with Michael Jordan, Charles Oakley, Ahmad Rashad, and Michael Rubin.

Kodak Black Back In Prison After Judges Rules Him a 'Danger'

Kodak Black remains behind bars after a U.S. District Court ruled the rapper to be a danger to his Florida community.

The 21-year-old rapper was arrested by federal agents on weapons charges earlier this month. A judge granted Kodak bond for $550,000 and a house arrest agreement. However, state prosecutors successfully appealed that decision based on the rapper’s previous criminal record.

Born Dieuson Octave,  is accused of falsifying documents to purchase firearms on three separate occasions. Prosecutors say Black falsified information on federal forms to obtain a 9mm handgun, a .380-caliber handgun, and a semi-automatic Mini Draco from a Miami-area gun shop.

Black has pleaded not guilty to all charges. He is facing additional drug charges in New York, where agents are attempting to connect the rapper to a shooting in March. Black is expected to remain in prison until the Miami weapons case starts trial. If he is charged, he faces up to 30 years in prison.

Right now, things aren’t looking good for the rapper.

Black was arrested during the Rolling Loud Festival in Florida in May. Authorities are seeking more information about three separate shootings that may have connections to the hip-hop festival.

The rapper was also arrested in April in Upstate New York on drug and weapons charges. Black attempted to cross the Lewiston-Queenston International Bridge from Canada into the United States with marijuana and firearms.

The rapper informed U.S. border agents that he had the drugs, including a loaded Glock 9mm pistol. Black was released from a county jail in Western New York last month after he posted bail.

Judge Moreno ruled that it seemed unlikely Black would be able to stay out of trouble, even under supervised house arrest. His lawyer justified the rapper owning firearms because Black “faced security threats from gangs and other rivals.”

'Rambo: Last Blood' to Feature Lil Nas X's 'Old Town Road' — Here's the Trailer

Lil Nas X’s ‘Old Town Road’ is proving to be one unstoppable horse.

The track, rejected by Billboard for not qualifying as a country song, is now jumping into a major Hollywood film.  That film is Rambo: Last Blood, starring none other than Sylvester Stallone.

The high-budget action flick, which also stars Adriana Barraza, Paz Vega, Yvette Monreal, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Oscar Jaenada, and Joaquín Cosío, is slated for release in September of this year.  Lionsgate is producing and distributing the pic, with Millennium Films, Balboa Productions, and Campbell Grobman Films also sharing production credits.

Earlier today, Lionsgate released a trailer for the film, which featured a cinematic version of ‘Old Town Road’ throughout.

Both Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus were singing on the Last Blood version, which has been seriously expanded into a cinematic soundtrack.  The evolution from eerie ambient song to trap remix to full-blown cinematic soundtrack is mind-blowing to say the least.

Exactly how integral the track will be in the actual film is unclear — though we’re guessing it’s a serious part of the Last Blood soundtrack.

That suggests that any copyright issues related to the song have already been resolved, with contributors growing the pie instead of fighting over it.  Just yesterday, it emerged that ‘Old Town Road’ was , potentially opening the door to millions in copyright damages.

The infringed track was originally released by Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor in 2008, though it looks like a deal was quietly arranged while the track took off.  Reznor currently enjoys a publishing credit on the song, though it’s unlikely that the song was cleared prior to the involvement of heavyweights like Sony Music Entertainment and Billy Ray Cyrus.

Lil Nas X, aka Montero Hill, first licensed the track on beats marketplace BeatStars, which offered the trap-infused country backdrop for $30.  The beat, created by Dutch teenager Young Kio, sourced the Nine Inch Nails song ’24 Ghosts IV’ from YouTube.

Here’s the trailer for Rambo: Last Blood.

DaBaby Appears To Spit At Crowd After Fan Allegedly Throws Singles At Him

Footage circulated on social media this week DaBaby getting heated at an audience member. Thankfully, this time he didn’t swing on anyone but he clearly felt disrespected. The rapper was performing on stage when someone decided to throw single dollar bills at him as if he were a stripper. Without really missing a beat, the rapper hacks a loogie at a fan and continues rapping.

It seems like common knowledge at this point that if you try and provoke DaBaby, he will react in a less-than-pleasing manner. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen him at the center a few controversies including a scrap with a Charlotte rapper named Cam Coldheart who tried to test DaBaby at the Louis Vuitton store. In a video uploaded to Instagram, Coldheart began pestering DaBaby at the high-end retail store before the “Suge” rapper went ham on him and beat him down.

This incident followed another altercation that DaBaby’s security had with a fan who asked for a photo. Ahead a scheduled performance, one the openers asked him for a quick picture but was met with the fists the “Goin Baby” rapper’s security team.

DaBaby later issued a warning after dealing with Coldheart at the Louis store, essentially letting everyone know that if they want to play with him, they will face repercussions. 

Swae Lee Backs Meek Mill’s Anti-Cosmopolitan Hotel Plight

Hollywood, CA – Swae Lee has revealed he’s also experienced discrimination at the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In a TMZ video shot days after Meek Mill was rejected from the Sin City hotel, the Rae Sremmurd rapper empathized with Meek’s situation.

“I feel [Meek Mill] 100 percent,” Swae said. “I was just there and they’re really aggressive for no reason.

“To people that discriminate against the Hip Hop community, I want you to remember we’re all people. You can learn something from somebody who’s different from you … All that racist shit is setting us back as people.”

The hotel refused Meek’s entry on Saturday (May 25), later citing a capacity issue. However, their security team initially barred the Philly rapper due to an alleged previous altercation and threatened to arrest him for trespassing if he got out of his vehicle.

Swae, Yo Gotti and others have supported Meek in his decision to sue the Cosmopolitan for discrimination.

Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, believes the hotel will pay “heavy monetary damages” and claims several black rappers have experienced racism in other Vegas hotels.

Kodak Black Denied Bond, Will Remain in Jail Until Trial

Kodak Black will spend the summer behind bars.

The “ZEZE” rapper has been denied bond and will remain in a Florida jail cell at least until September, according to TMZ.

On Wednesday (May 29), a judge in the federal case ruled that Kodak stay in jail until his trial gets underway.

The 21-year-old MC previously requested to be released on bail while under strict supervision, so he could travel to South Carolina and deal with his sexual assault case from 2016. However, the Department of Justice agreed with prosecutors, saying he’s a danger to the community and shouldn’t be released before trial.

Kodak was arrested on weapons charges at Rolling Loud Miami earlier this month. He is scheduled to go on trial for allegedly making false statements on two different occasions while trying to purchase guns in January and again in March. Prosecutors say he acquired weapons during at least one of those transactions.

DaBaby Rap RAPS On His Funk Flex Freestyle

New York City, NY – DaBaby, alongside collaborator Stunna 4 Vegas, recently stopped by Funkmaster Flex, where the “Suge” rapper dropped off an impressive barrage of bars. Beginning the segment — posted Wednesday (May 28) — by complimenting their live performance, the veteran DJ said that he was not only impressed, but he was “amazed.

Zion Williamson’s Hunt For An Agent Has Finally Come To An End

Zion Williamson is easily one the most hyped up NBA draft prospects all time and next month, he will be drafted into the association where he will have a ton expectations thrust upon him. The New Orleans Pelicans have the first overall pick in the draft which means Zion will most likely be headed to Louisianna to start his career. Williamson has a ton endorsement deals coming his way, especially when it comes to sneakers and other sportswear brands. Having said that, it’s important for Zion to find an agent that can represent him and work within his best interests.

Over the last few weeks, Williamson has been searching for an agent and according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, it appears as though that search has finally come to an end. Zion has reportedly signed with agency CAA and will be represented by two agents in Austin Brown and Lisa Joseph-Metelus.

Now that Zion’s agent situation has been secured, you can expect the Duke Blue Devils star to sign some pretty lucrative deals soon. Williamson’s contemporary, Ja Morant, recently signed with Nike on a multiyear deal and is expected to be the second overall pick in the draft.

Either way, Zion is getting paid.
