50 Cent Ridicules Bow Wow: "If You Didn’t Act Crazy You Could Have Been A Tycoon"

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. 

Rapsody Unveils "EVE" Cover Art & Tracklist

Rapsody has unveiled the tracklist and cover art for her forthcoming album EVE. Rather than simply listing the song titles, the North Carolina-bred MC has given each track its own Instagram post as well as singular post for all the features.

“EVE Album cover,” she wrote in the caption. ” AUG 23rd. Pre-order available now. LINK IN BIO. | powered by @jamlarecords @rocnation @defjam and the people! designed by @brickshaus | photography by @_swankshotit | hair by @braid_artistry.”

Queen Latifah, J.I.D, Leikeli47, GZA, D’Angelo and J. Cole are among the special guests who help pay tribute to some of Rapsody’s heroes.

Powerful women such as Oprah, Nina Simone and Afeni Shakur are a few of those honored on the project. In a recent interview with Beats 1, the Grammy Award-winning artist explained the concept behind the 16-track effort.

“I’m influenced by so many black women,” she said. A lot of people already know I’m heavily influenced by Lauryn Hill, MC Lyte, and Queen Latifah,” she said. “It’s just not all or nothing for me. I’m an extension of them, so every song is going to be a different woman and different energy of what makes Rapsody who she is.”

EVE is expected to arrive on August 23.

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.

Watch: Denzel Curry & Slowthai Perform A Banging Unreleased Song At Lollapalooza

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.”

Nipsey Hussle Disses Tekashi 6ix9ine On Rick Ross’ "Rich Nigga Lifestyle"

Rick Ross finally dropped Port Of Miami 2 on Friday (August 9). Fans of the late Nipsey Hussle were presumably anticipating his contribution to “Rich Nigga Lifestyle” featuring Teyana Taylor.

Unsurprisingly, the track comes with a blatant diss Nipsey hurls in Tekashi 6ix9ine’s direction. As part of his verse, the slain MC dogs the incarcerated rapper for cooperating with authorities in an effort to get a reduced sentence in his federal racketeering case.

“I can’t name a fake nigga that was not exposed/How y’all niggas so surprised that Tekashi told?” he spits. “Ain’t a real street nigga ‘less you got a code.”

Weeks before his March 31 shooting death, Nipsey sat down for an interview with Big Boy and made his feelings clear on 6ix9ine. He was adamant people should turn a blind eye to the polarizing rap figure.

“The public should not even react to clown shit,” Nipsey said. “The public should follow the real niggas, if the real niggas ain’t reacting so y’all don’t react.

“Put the dude on goofy time and just let him sit over here doing what he doing till that shit expire, cause it always gonna self-destruct, clearly.”

Cardi B Slams Trolls Joking About Yung Miami’s Shooting: "This Sh*t Is Different"

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 Takes A Big Loss After Selling Atlanta Mansion For $1.8M: Report

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. 

G Perico Announces "Ten Eight" Album With "Big Raccs" Featuring Sonny Digital

Los Angeles, CA – After a period of minimal musical output, G Perico is back with a vengeance on his new single “Big Raccs” featuring Sonny Digital.

The track is taken from his forthcoming Ten Eight album, which explains where he’s been for the past several months.

Ten Eight is named after the block Perico grew up on in South Central Los Angeles. “Big Raccs” serves as the inaugural single from the project and offers up an infectious beat and more tales from the hood.

Ten Eight will serve as Perico’s first proper studio album since 2017’s To Tha Left. In between albums, he dropped 2018’s Guess What? EP but has evidently been hard at work on the forthcoming project ever since.

The 11-track effort is expected to arrive on August 23 Perico’s own imprint So Way Out.

"Black Ink Crew: Chicago" Star Phor Stresses Importance Of Camaraderie On "Whole Lotta"

Chicago, IL – Chicago native Phor Brumfield rose to prominence on VH1’s hit show, Black Ink Crew: Chicago. During one of the episodes, it was clear the professional tattoo artist was a burgeoning rap star with ambitious dreams.

After dropping”No More” in June, Phor — which also serves as his rap moniker — is back with a new single called “Whole Lotta.”

“Contrary to the lyrics, this song is not actually about being in or affiliated with a street gang but rather the camaraderie found between a group of close friends or loved ones,” Phor tells HipHopDX. “It’s about bonding, confiding in and making memories with your crew.“

Phor made his rap debut in 2015 with Sacrifice. It dropped roughly six months before Black Ink Crew: Chicago premiered on the popular music channel. Since then, he’s pumped out a handful of singles, including “Chi-Town” and “LV” featuring Valee.

His fourth studio album, Cake, was released in February and featured the cut “Truly Missed,” which centered on the death of his cousin Jade.

Check out “Whole Lotta” above and cop Cake here. 

Floyd Mayweather Teases Boxing Fans With New Training Watch

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 Shows Off Her Armpit Hair For Harper’s Bazaar Feminist Essay

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.”
