Common previously chatted with The Breakfast Club about his former dating patterns.

“The pattern I found myself in—and my therapist broke it down—was the feeling being in love and that honeymoon period.

Chance The Rapper Tells Former Fan To "Eat A D*ck" In Heated Twitter Exchange

Chance The Rapper seemingly had all the time in the world to clap back at a former fan who expressed their distaste for the rapper’s new music. By the looks it, things really got heated when a Twitter user called Chance out for letting his ego get in the way how he responds to criticism. Chance didn’t care too much about the user’s explanation things and just replied with, “eat a dick.”

Things didn’t stop there, though. After the user, who goes by Chris, called Chance out again, the “Same Drugs” rapper called Chris a “spoiled child” who thinks he’s is making music just for him.

“You’re a spoiled child who thinks artists are making music for you. I never intended for you to find or like anything I made. If I knew you existed, I would’ve tried my hardest to keep you from being able to enjoy it. Now go eat a dick again,” he wrote

Chris responded by trying to add some clarity to the situation, explaining how he didn’t say whether Chance’s music was “good or bad.”

“I said you treat your fans poorly. You’re supposed to be a role model but you’re out here telling people to eat dicks for fering you criticism. SMH,” he added. 

Chance didn’t seem to care and told Chris to once again, “eat a dick.”

Aaron McGruder & Sony Set To Reboot “The Boondocks” In 2020

Annecy, France – Fans of The Boondocks can rejoice as it appears that 2020 will bring a new season of the critically acclaimed animated series — with creator Aaron McGruder back at the helm.

As first reported by Variety, the announcement was made on Wednesday (June 12) by Sony Animated Pictures president Kristine Belson during the 2019 Annecy Animation Festival, in Annecy France.

A co-production with Sony Pictures Television, the reboot is set to be a “complete re-imagining” of the OG series fans first fell in love with in 2005.

“[The show] chronicles the adventures of the Freeman family against the evil local government tyrant Uncle Ruckus, who rules fictional Woodcrest County, Maryland with an iron fist,” a statement from Sony explains.

John Witherspoon, who voices Granddad, first confirmed that the show would be returning during an interview with Joe Rogan — though he didn’t elaborate on timelines.

The Breakfast Club’s very own Charlamagne Tha God witnessed the imminent comeback firsthand, having previewed a few new comic strips on his Instagram this year. And he understands the cultural significance of the show’s return.

The Boondocks is one of my top three TV shows of all time,” Charlamagne tells HipHopDX. “Aaron Mcgruder is a genius and I don’t use that term loosely. Programming like The Boondocks is what always made me my platforms have the perfect balance of ratchetness and righteousness because if you ever watched The Boondocks you understood the messaging in it was way deeper than animation.

“They truly knew how to put the medicine in the candy and this new incarnation of The Boondocks aligns with my current adult sensibilities the things I care about the most now will definitely be seen the lens of the World of Woodcrest and I can’t wait,” he added.

The series was initially set to end after three seasons but was revived without the involvement of the show’s creator — citing the reason for the spilt as a disagreement over the production schedule.

#DXCLUSIVE: Jamo Gang Announce Fat Beats Deal & Drop First Single From Upcoming LP

New York City, NY – Following up their 2018 self-titled EP, Jamo Gang — the trio of Ras Kass, El Gant, and J57) have announced their debut LP Walking With Lions will be dropping this fall a brand new deal with Fat Beats Records. In anticipation, they’ve released a brand new single, “Francis Scott Key.”

The single takes an aggressive stance on the current administration in office and the US system, and how they feel it sets people — especially those of color — up for failure.

“As soon as J57 sent the track over I knew exactly what direction I was headed in with this record”, El Gant tells HipHopDX. “It had energy where everything I was thinking and feeling just poured out of the pen effortlessly.”

He adds, “We had just gotten off a tour where the three of us had a lot of driving time and discussions about how we felt, so this song was very natural for us and full of raw emotion.”

Ras Kass shares a similar sentiment about the single. “This song is just the musical version of what I speak about every day. Without speaking about the atrocities committed against people of color, and those in a position of disadvantage, nothing gets done.”

He notes that when Trump first took office, the only positive point he could find was that music would start becoming political again.

“I was hoping people would take a stance like in the early nineties and late sixties … for the most part shockingly, that didn’t happen,” Ras Kass states.

“We all couldn’t wait to release this song because of how strongly we felt, but we also knew the timing had to be right,” J57 — who produced the track along with PJ Katz — adds. “Freedom of speech means that if you don’t agree with the way things are, you speak up about it, that’s how the pendulum swings in the other direction.”

Cavaliers Hire Cal Women’s HC Lindsay Gottlieb As An Assistant

After their first season without LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers were absolutely abysmal as they finished the season with a record 19-63. In the fseason, the team hired head coach John Beilein which was a move that came with a lot criticism. The Cavaliers clearly don’t care about this criticism and are doing everything they can to give their team an edge heading into next season. Today, the team made even more steps to beef up their coaching staff as they announced the hiring Cal women’s basketball head coach Lindsay Gottlieb.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, this is the first time in NBA history that an NCAA women’s basketball head coach was hired to be an assistant coach. There are already a few women assistant coaches in the league, although Gottlieb’s status as a head coach at the college level certainly makes her a significant hiring.

The Universal Studios Fire In 2008 Destroyed an Estimated 500,000 UMG Master Recordings

Universal’s 2008 fire reportedly destroyed 500,000 recordings, including Chuck Berry, Ella Fitzgerald, and Eminem master tapes, according to the New York Times.  UMG says the report isn’t entirely accurate.

Additional information concerning the tragic 2008 fire at Universal Studios has recently emerged, with the New York Times describing a massive and depressing loss.

Per internal Universal Music Group (UMG) documents obtained by the Times, over 175,000 master tapes perished in the blaze. These tapes, which were not backed up, are estimated to have stored more than 500,000 songs, including tracks from all-time greats like Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, amongst many others.

This element of the fire’s damage wasn’t previously known to the public. The physical destruction, however, was widely reported in the media, and it included the Courthouse Square set (featured in many movies and television shows, including Back to the Future) and a mechanical King Kong replica, which was part of an amusement ride.

More modern-day icons like Eminem also had material obliterated. The Times noted that Universal Music Group kept the losses an “open secret,” while hiding “the biggest disaster in the history of the music business.”

The fire was accidentally started by roofers using blowtorches while performing a job. These individuals watched the area for an hour after completing their work, as they are trained to do, but the heat applied to the roof did not dissipate, and the fire broke out soon after the roofers left the site.

Once again, both public and internal comments at the time indicated that valuable masters weren’t lost.

It’s unclear why exactly Universal Music Group painted such an encouraging picture to the public (and took so long to reveal the truth), but in addition to the aforementioned artists’ master tapes, original, irreplaceable recordings of the Andrew Sisters, Chuck Berry, Neil Diamond, Elton John, Tom Petty, Nirvana, and many other groups and musicians, were also reportedly destroyed.

As the Times piece started spreading, UMG initiated a PR counter-offensive.

In a statement issued to Variety, the mega-label chastised the Times piece for “numerous inaccuracies, misleading statements, contradictions and fundamental misunderstandings of the scope of the incident and affected assets.”

“Music preservation is of the highest priority for us and we are proud of our track record,” the statement continued. “While there are constraints preventing us from publicly addressing some of the details of the fire that occurred at NBCUniversal Studios facility more than a decade ago, the incident – while deeply unfortunate – never affected the availability of the commercially released music nor impacted artists’ compensation.”

Interestingly, Universal doesn’t seem to be disputing the actual destruction of the masters themselves. But the label is attempting to minimize the losses by pointing to backups, optimized copies and remasters. A Chuck Berry original recording is priceless, of course, but its loss doesn’t mean high-quality versions of the recording are also gone.

Though Universal Music Group is the largest and most successful record company in the world, the pieces of music history are simply irreplaceable.  And so are all the extras that accompany a master, including notes, extra outtakes, and other priceless bits.

While this fact is discouraging, it can be used to spur UMG professionals to take steps to prevent a similar tragedy from occurring, both because of the wonderful art that was destroyed and because the fire, which took 24 hours to extinguish, could have resulted in the loss of human life.

Lil Duval & Charlamagne Tha God Drop “Black Men Don’t Cheat” Single

Lil Duval wants to “change the narrative” with his latest Charlamagne Tha God-assisted single, “Black Men Don’t Cheat.”

The comedian, rapper and R&B artist first gained musical success after his single “Smile (Living My Best Life)” landed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart last year.

The Hot 97 radio host and author echoed Duval’s sentiments about their collaboration and need to “stand together.” He went further by announcing June 12 as, “National #BlackMenDontCheat Day,” asking his three million Instagram followers to “Stand With Us In The Name Of Faithfulness.”

The pair of longtime friends are clearly enjoying the release of their new single, which is already trending on Twitter.

That is, until six weeks into their marriage the pair were involved in a domestic violence incident that left Lozada with a gash on the middle her forehead.
