50 Cent‘s mockery Bow Wow started up again this afternoon, his underlying motive being: the tacked-on interest he forgot to tabulate when he wiped the slate clean in the month June. If you’ll recall, Bow Wow was accused stealing 50’s hard-earned cash during a romp at the strip attended by many famous observers.

From there, things escalated to the point where Fty began referring to the Summer months as the “Bow Wow War” before it reached its end. Fast forward to this afternoon, and Bow Wow’s career downfall was once again, plastered on the face the teleprompter for all to see. “If you didn’t act crazy you could have been at TYCOON now you stuck in London. LOL,” 50 Cent languished on Instagram, at Bow Wow’s expense if that wasn’t already obvious.
Rather than sit there and idle, Bow Wow responded the gag in the comments, by assuring 50 Cent that he was doing well financially. “Hahahahaha motherf****** im getting this bag tho bro! Yall turn up for me,” he wrote, before crawling to the kitchen for another hot pocket. No need for the coast guard this time around, as the constituents appear to be sun-soaked, delirious, and completely out quarters.

While it may not be at its peak popularity these days, there is no denying the impact and the importance the Nike Air Foamposite. The Nike Air Foamposite Pro is known for having the swoosh on the side and because this trait, it isn’t as popular as the Foamposite One. Regardless, some people can’t get enough the shoe even if it’s almost impossible to pull f with certain outfits these days. Either way, Nike continues to release new colorways the classic shoe and the latest will surely have Foamposite heads and funny enough, BAPE fans, foaming at the mouth.
In the Instagram post below, courtesy @zsneakerheadz, we have some detailed photos the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Purple Camo.” The shoe has pink and purple camo all the way throughout the upper while a black Nike swoosh is found near the back. The rest the sneaker is black as to create a nice bit contrast.
These kicks will be coming out on Saturday, August 17th for $230 USD so if you’re in the market for new Foams, these might be the ones to go far. They might be loud but they would definitely stand out amongst the rest your Foamposite collection.
Alchemist has announced that his next album, Yacht Rock 2, will release on August 30. While the first installation in the series – released in 2013 – was only a two-track EP, Yacht Rock 2 will boast a whole twelve tracks Al and his friends. The tracklist includes his frequent collaborators, like Action Bronson, Meyhem Lauren, Roc Marciano and Westside Gunn.
Given the theme the Yacht Rock series, expect a beachy, blissful sound. Alchemist tweeted at the end last month that this project will “RULE] THE SUMMER” and we don’t doubt him. While Alchemist revealed the cover in an Instagram post what appears to be a photo the LP, the vinyl pre-order is not yet available in his Bandcamp store. However, all you vinylheads should be on the lookout for it because his records tend to sell out. The 500 copies his last release – the excellent Schoolboy Q collaboration, “W.Y.G.D.T.N.S.” – are all gone.

The first weekend August marked the arrival the ever-awaited, annual Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago. The yearly festival features a line-up really hot names, and usually some crazy antics, and Instagrammable moments tend to go down – like this year when Meek Mill brought along a sex toy with him onstage, and Thugger pulled up a huge fan his, in a wheelchair, with him on his own set. With big festivals like this, artists usually premier new songs, or perform (otherwise unexpected) duets with others, such as 21 Savage and Childish Gambino performing their “Monster Duet;” in the case Denzel Curry, he took to bringing British rap-sensation on the rise, Slowthai, with him onstage to perform an unreleased song theirs.

Though it’s not the first time the two have teased this song live — Slowthai has occasionally closed his concerts with it in the past, and the two them performed it together at Glastonbury earlier this year — this version was a particularly banging rendition it. The two can be seen performing with as much energy as one can hope for in a live performance, with Denzel even taking to walking between the crowd and Slowthai getting close enough for fans to be able to feel as though they are performing right alongside him. We hope we’ll be seeing the ficial release the track sometime soon, but in the meantime, if you’re itching for some new Curry tunes, you can check out his feature on Rick Ross‘ recently released Port Of Miami 2, where the two linked up with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie for “Running The Streets.”
Just yesterday, Yung Miami debuted her feature in Galore Magazine and in it she named her favourite female that was none other than Cardi B. Just one day later we understand why she loves Cardi so much and it’s clearly because the “Press” rapper has her back. After Yung Miami was the subject a studio shooting in Miami (that thankfully left her unscathed) Cardi shared a video aimed to the trolls that have had the audacity to make fun Yung surrounding the incident.

“What happened to her is a miracle! Her car got shot up a lot times!” Cardi said, as seen in the video below. “And I see a lot people in the comments joking about it, doing little jokes like, ‘I thought you kept a baby glock!’ Bitch shut the fuck up! This shit is different. She’s pregnant.”
She added: “Y’all love to joke around! Just remember those little comments that y’all be doing for clout, that shit ain’t worth bad karma to you, bitch. ‘Cause that karma come! Y’all want to be fucking funny in the comments, hoe? That shit come right back to you, bitch. Your baby father might get clapped up. Or your mama.”
She said what she said.
Young Thug‘s facing a few financial problems these days. Just a day after news broke that he was hit with a $145K tax lien, it’s now being reported that he’s also taken a huge loss in the sale his mansion in Atlanta. According to The Blast, the rapper’s seven-bedroom, 11-bathroom home in Atlanta was going for $3M back in November and he’s had a bit a struggle selling the spot. After months trying cutting the price down, the rapper reportedly found a buyer that bought the mansion for $1.8M.
The mansion, which was described as “an entertainers delight! Former Celebrity Home. Million Dollar renovation nestled in an exquisite gated mansion,” was originally purchased for $2.75M in 2016 so he lost nearly $1M. However, the home already had flaws in it by the time it was purchased, according to Thug. Back in 2017, the rapper sued the real estate agent for trying to sell him on a home that he claimed had any flaws the company failed to disclose. He filed a countersuit against Heritage Select Homes who claimed Thug refused to make a $2.2M payment in March 2017.
Thug made several claims against the company including working with the real estate agent to get an inspection firm that wouldn’t tell him the issues the home. He also claimed that they knew about the problems but never disclosed it. The case is ongoing.
Ever since Manny Pacquiao defeated Keith Thurman just a few weekends ago, fans have been clamoring for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather. Pacquiao has expressed overwhelming interest in such a fight but as right now, it doesn’t look like Mayweather wants any part in that. He recently said Pacquiao is relevant and that he only wants to fight Floyd to keep his name in the news. Either way, people want this fight to happen and at the end the day, it’s all contingent on whether or not Mayweather agrees.
Recently, Mayweather took to Instagram where he showed f a training video and it doesn’t look like he’s missing a beat. At 42 years old, Mayweather is still winning fights and fans want to see if he can keep his undefeated status alive. Based on this video, he certainly looks like he’d be ready for some action.
If these two were to end up back in the ring, there is no telling how much money they could wield. It would certainly be a fight for the ages as the two are legends in their own right. Mayweather won the first fight but based on Manny’s performance against Thurman, there is a good chance Pacquaio could do some damage to Floyd.
Who do you think would win?
Emily Ratajkowski is no rookie to showing f every angle her body in it’s toned and fit form. From her tiny orange bikini looks to her nude shoots to fight anti-abortion laws the 28-year-old isn’t afraid to step into her birthday suit for the sake normalizing a woman’s body. The latest the latter sees Emily posing with an armpit full hair to accompany her open letter Harper’s Bazaar on feminism.
“On any given day, I tend to like to shave, but sometimes letting my body hair grow out is what makes me feel sexy. And there is no right answer, no choice that makes me more or less a feminist, or even a ‘bad feminist,’ to borrow from Roxane Gay,” she detailed in her piece. “As long as the decision is my choice, then it’s the right choice. Ultimately, the identity and sexuality an individual is up to them and no one else.”

“As a culture we are scared women generally, but also, more specifically, the innate power that female sexuality possesses,” she added. “A woman becomes too powerful and thus threatening when she takes strength from embracing her sex. Therefore we insist on shaming; we insist that a woman loses something when she flaunts or embraces her sexuality.”

Kyrie Irving’s Nike signature line is among the best on the market right now, and fans the Kyries are surely eagerly awaiting the reveal his new on-court sneaker. Of course, there are still some Nike Kyrie 5s in the pipeline – most notably the highly anticipated SpongeBob pack – but it’s about that time to start looking ahead to what’s next.
The Nike Kyrie 6 has surfaced on instagram in the last few weeks, but we now have our best look yet, courtesy the man himself. Irving recently gave his new signature sneaker a test run on the hardwood, giving fans the first on-foot look the upcoming Nike Kyrie 6.
The sneakers seem similar to the Nike Kyrie 4, although it comes equipped with a midfoot strap akin to the Kyrie 2. The midsole also looks to feature Zoom turbo in the forefoot, which was first used on the Kyrie 5. Overall, the silhouette actually bears a slight resemblance to the Nike Air Yeezy 2.
Check out some additional images the Kyrie 6 below, while we await the ficial reveal.
