Kit Kat Reveals New Permanent Flavour

Your beloved snappable candy bar is about to introduce a new friend. There have been rumours for weeks about a possible new flavour being cooked up at the Nestlé headquarters but finally, an ficial announcement has been made. Kit Kat hasn’t introduced a new permanent flavour to their collection candy bars in nearly ten years but they’re ready to unveil a new vibe for our taste buds, coming through with the Kit Kat Duos Mint and Dark Chocolate.

The only unfortunate thing about the announcement is that we’ll have to wait until wintertime to try out the new mini bar. Hopefully, it will be worth the wait. The new Kit Kat will combine two flavours as suggested in its title. The top layer will be minty and the bottom layer will be composed dark chocolate. In the middle, the same familiar wafer will be completing the delicious treat’s blueprint. 

As noted by Thrillist, it makes sense that Kit Kat would wait until the end the year to roll out the new flavour. With all the winter holidays happening around December, mint is always in season during the later months so it only makes sense that their new mini bars would be made available then. Gotta capitalize on the season, right? Will you be trying to new item?

Dwyane Wade Generating Interest From ESPN & TNT As An Analyst

Dwyane Wade went on an epic farewell tour this year as he announced at the beginning the season that this would be his last year in the league. Wade won three NBA titles in his 16 seasons, with all three coming during his time with the Miami Heat. Wade spent a couple seasons with the Chicago Bulls although that part his career has been forgotten by most his fans.

With Wade retired from the game basketball, he is already starting to receive interest from television networks such as ESPN and TNT. According to a report from The New York Post’s Andrew Marchand, both networks could potentially want Wade as a TV analyst. As for ESPN, Wade could be added to NBA: Countdown should the network want to change things up personnel wise. When it comes TNT, Wade could be added to Inside The NBA with Shaq, Charles Barkley, and Kenny Smith.

In the report, it states that both networks are currently making pitches to Wade and are even considering him for as early as this year’s playfs. Wade’s transition to television could be a quick one, although the star has never made it clear as to whether he’d be open to a career in broadcasting.

Young Buck Threatens To Destroy 50 Cent’s Career: "I’ll Ja Rule You"

Young Buck‘s been subject to many roasts at the hands 50 Cent. With Buck’s new project on the way, 50 Cent took an unorthodox route in raising awareness for it on social media.

“Young buck is almost ready to drop his album. He worked hard on this project, I told him his personal choice to date a tran sexual will confuse some his core audience but with the support the LGBT he should be fine,” 50 Cent wrote on Instagram, reminding everyone  Buck’s alleged affair with a transgender person.

Buck caught wind the topic and threatened to “Ja Rule” the Power executive’s career on Instagram Live.

Young Buck dished out a response to 50 Cent for his comments earlier today. Buck called out Fif for not only trolling on social media but also for his shady business practices that have left the former G-Unit member tied to a contract. He also threatened to destroy Fif’s career, saying, “I’ll burn your career down. I’ll Ja Rule you.”

“I thought you was 50 Cent… I thought you had some real n***a tendencies,” Buck said on Instagram Live while waiting for his flight to take f. “You a real life sucka, n***a,” he added before claiming 50 Cent’s trying to manipulate the fans with unsubstantiated rumors. “If you such a real n***a, why don’t you let me go? You understand what I’m saying? And we’ll fight the battle like that,” he continued. “Line me up like Ja Rule. Go bar-for-bar with me, n***a. Play that game, you scared?”

Buck also seemed to suggest that he has some dirt Fif that he’s willing to dish out if the feud continues. Considering that he was once good friends with Fif, it doesn’t seem far fetched that Buck might have some tea to spill on him.

From Kanye To Uzi: What Does Streaming’s Ability To Alter Music Mean For The Album?

Embroiled in one the more bitter contractual disputes we’ve seen in recent years, fans Lil Uzi Vert were relieved when his first ficial track since 2018 emerged. Hot on the heels his reinterpretation G Herbo’s “Gangway” on the short-lived “Free Uzi,” the man that had felt stifled by DJ Drama’s Generation You imprint came back with a vengeance on “Sanguine Paradise.” Initially leaked under the title “Money Keep Coming,” his audience were left bewildered when the track’s beat was switched out just days afters its release. By reverting back to the original Working On Dying production, it has relegated the MIDI horns to the cutting room floor and expunged the first incarnation its “ficial” release from all streaming services. Met with a polarizing response from his fanbase, it recalls the commotion that the formerly “retired” Pittsburgh MC caused when there were alterations made to his worldwide smash “Xo TOUR Llif3.” With listeners torn between the original and the “remastered” edition, Lil Uzi’s penchant for amending music in real-time strikes to the heart a huge debate in the music industry. Although it segues f into different areas the landscape, the prevailing question is as follows: Is the ability to amend music on streaming services a good or bad thing?

From Kanye To Uzi: What Does Streaming's Ability To Alter Music Mean For The Album?

Above all others, one man that emphatically brought this debate to the table is Kanye West. A tactic first enlisted by Ye back in 2016, it allowed for his seventh record The Life Of Pablo to undergo numerous shifts and alterations. When he live-streamed “Yeezy Season 3” at Madison Square Garden, conventional wisdom dictated that what we and the 20 million others that tuned into to watch the album’s first spin would be hearing the finished article. Yet as we’d soon come to realize, the record was and still technically is, subject to change. Between its initial release and January 2018, the album underwent a number renovations and refurbishments. Consisting changes to its tracklisting, additional samples and tweaks in its production, this interchangeable approach to a record was in adherence to his rhetoric during this period. Unveiled at a time where his relationship with Tidal was at its apex, Ye had decided to leave physical copies behind and placed all his eggs in the streaming basket. A month after TLOP’s rollout, he made it clear that the album would only ever exist interactively rather than the industry standardized format that his previous project had laid to rest: “the Yeezus album packaging was an open casket to CDs r.i.p. uuuuuuum, so there it is… No more CDs from me.” Although it may have seemed like a sweeping generalization, this claim correlated with his belief that TLOP wasn’t an album in the traditional sense but more a “a living breathing changing creative expression.”

Two years on, Kanye has quietly back peddled on his grim prognosis towards physical media. For 10 or 15 dollars a pop, fans could have copies Ye whisked f to their home from his online shop. That being said, it hasn’t changed his stance on altering tracks after they’ve been completed. Back in November 2018, Yeezy made some decisive changes to album opener “I Thought About Killing You.” Given his desire to revisit his work, it could be argued that this is the optimal way for Kanye to release music and– if Working On Dying’s Brandon Finessin is to be believed– it may be the best tactic for Uzi to employ as well. In a recent interview with Genius, Brandon inadvertently outlined why this fluidity and leeway would take a lot the strain f the recording process: “It’s tough because he’s such a perfectionist that we’ve probably had 11 versions Eternal Atake. He records every day. But he’s not gonna put it out until he feels like every one is to his liking, and sometimes that pace is gonna be slower than what his fans like.” In the case notoriously fickle artists such as Ye and Uzi, the technological advances that are afforded by streaming could be a way to quell any nagging creative dissatisfaction that they may have.

While some see this as a death knell for the art the album as we know it, the British Phonographic Industry’s head Gef Taylor sees that as little more than scaremongering. At an event in 2018, Taylor proclaimed this to be a rebirth for the entire concept a project as a cohesive body work: “Some commentators have been quick to consign the album to the great format graveyard in the sky. But the album is not some fixed physical thing. It’s an idea, a concept, that is used by both artists and fans to provide a richer experience music… We see the album as a canvas that the artist can use to tell a story or communicate an idea. An album can also evolve through time. The elements an album aren’t fixed: they can be added to or remixed by the artist, so the album becomes an ever-changing body work.”

Concluding with the quip “if it’s good enough for Kanye, it should be good enough for a lot other artists,” Taylor’s outlook is one that’s receptive to the deconstruction the album or song in its conventional parameters and into something that can be altered at any time. A modernist approach to art that trades out timelessness for transformations, the concern lies in whether this could damage the prospect a “classic” track or album due to the fact that they will never be frozen in time. In this sense, the power to edit on command could become something a double-edged sword that artists the past were unburdened by. If Nas had any reservations about Illmatic or Pac wanted to add an extra track to All Eyez On Me, these issues were time-sensitive and couldn’t be rectified at a later date. Now that the weight finality is removed from their shoulders, it could mean that albums the future would be trotted out with haste and gradually amended later. In many ways, this is diametrically opposed to the immersive experience picking up a record from the store and consuming every single bar and note that they’d laid down for eternity.

However, those that refuse to heed the call progress are destined to be left behind. Drilled home by Billie Eilish’s revelation that she’d never bought a CD, the industry is now led by those who’ve grown up on the internet and its culture instant gratification. So rather than grieve over the loss our perception music’s immortality, we should perhaps be more concerned that the algorithms and bureaucracy that comes with streaming has meant that it is now playing an active role in the creative process. In order to appease the services’ systems, songs are being made shorter in order to maximize their impact. Coupled with the phenomenon artists padding their track lists purely to make as much money as possible from revenue, it seems as though the rules these services enforce are far more harmful than Kanye, Drake, Uzi or any other artist deciding to slyly reconfigure some their material.

Whatever the future holds, what we can say with certainty is that the mechanics the music industry will never be the same. Now, there’s nothing to do but watch it unfold and see whether this power to amend is to the benefit or detriment the genre that we know and love.

Do you think this is a positive or negative development for the music industry? Sound f in the comments below.

Future’s Alleged Baby Mama Shuts Down A Commenter After Giving Birth

Throughout her pregnancy, Eliza Reign made sure that everybody knew who she was. She clarified that she was carrying Future‘s child several months ago. In an emotional turn events, Eliza said that the rapper actually threatened to have her killed in November and after she made that claim, Hendrix just stopped paying attention to her. He has not denied or confirmed the allegations that he fathered her child but Eliza seems pretty sure that he’s the one. She recently snapped at a fan who assumed she didn’t have anything set up with Future regarding child support or paternity and today, she hit back at another commenter who asked about the baby’s last name situation.

“Some said he threatened to kill her and she was so shook. Now the baby has his last name,” said the commenter. When Eliza Reign caught wind it, she decided to work her retaliation magic again and told the fan to sit down. “Whatever last name I choose to give MY BABY is my BUSINESS… If I wanted her last name to be TOUCH YOUR NOSE, that would still be my business. Y’all trolls be worried about the wrong things,” she wrote. 

Reign then went on to say that she doesn’t need any Future’s money because she’s out here getting the bag herself. Do you think Future will ever acknowledge the birth his alleged new daughter?

Childish Gambino’s "Algorythm" Song Arrives On "Pharos" AR App

The scope Donald Glover’s artistic vision extends beyond the traditional. With a seemingly boundless well creativity from which to draw, Gambino has been increasingly busy late, forging out a unique and eclectic musical path. Now, he’s come through and delivered an innovative means discovering his “Algorythm” song, which has been a recent staple during some his live shows.

Should you be interested in hearing the ficial version “Algorythm,” all you need to do is download the App and partake accordingly. It’s not entirely dissimilar to Radiohead’s “Polyfauna,” which launched back in 2014. With “Pharos,” users will find themselves staring at a 3D world, where they can trigger aural phenomena by pointing their screen at neon symbols. Eventually, you’ll be able to build the full song, which may prove too large an ask for the impatient folk. 

How do you feel about experimental releases such as this? Are you feeling it, or are you simply hear for the streaming? 

Karlie Redd Blasted By Party DJ For "Eating Out Pooh’s Cookie Jar"

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta returned for an 8th season back in March and as such, the series continues to wow viewers with impending drama. At the highlight the show’s primary storylines stands reality television star Karlie Redd, both jolly and in high spirits following her engagement to new beau Maurice “Mo” Fayne.

Earlier this season, a newly introduced cast member named Pooh Hicks made her debut on the show. The housewife was quickly linked to Karlie once she mentioned not having been invited to the anticipated engagement party. In an attempt to sort things out, Pooh showed up to Karlie’s store with questions. Karlie Redd revealed she no longer wished to affiliate with Pooh, resulting in an exchange insults and injuries.

As Pooh became Karlie’s arch nemesis, the ex-friend found herself doubly uninvited to the television personality’s engagement party. Though, in true Love & Hip Hop messiness, it did not stop there. After sharing heartfelt words appreciation with her future husband, Karlie received an unexpected message from her nemesis the DJ she hired to spin at her party. Che Mack, the DJ in charge, proudly revealed to be Pooh’s friend and delivered an insulting message where she exposed Karlie for munching on Pooh’s cookies. Awkward…

In this situation, I believe the saying “don’t shoot the messenger” fails to apply.

ScHoolboy Q’s "CrasH Talk" Survived 3 Versions

Calabasas, CA – ScHoolboy Q scrapped three albums worth of material before settling on his upcoming CrasH Talk LP. In a feature story for GQ, the Top Dawg Entertainment artist revealed he axed multiple projects that could’ve been his follow-up to 2016’s Blank Face.

According to Q, he canned two albums because “they were trash.” His third attempt was stopped by labelmates Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock, who told him it wasn’t up to par for his next release.

The GQ article also details how Q’s new hobby, golfing, has changed his life.

“Being in the house so damn much can drive you crazy,” he said. “Golf taught me patience, and you need that in the music industry, because this shit is evil.”

He noted, “I’d be in the house smoking weed, just waiting to go to the studio every day. That’s not a good life. That brings on depression. You know how bad it is when you’re going through all this shit in your head and all you’re doing is going to the studio and back home? It’s toxic for your kid, too.”

Q’s CrasH Talk is scheduled to drop this Friday (April 26). Listen to the latest single from the project below.

New "Game Of Thrones" Promo Photos Highlights Upcoming Battle

It’s almost time. Next Sunday, Game Of Thrones will be airing its long-anticipated Battle For Winterfell, which will take up the bulk the hour-plus runtime. Of the shoot, which ultimately spanned across fifty-five nights, led to Peter Dinklage to claim “It makes the Battle the Bastards look like a theme park.” Lty, considering said battle featured Jon Snow nearly suffocating beneath the weight retreating soldiers in a truly claustrophobic fashion. In any case, last week’s “A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms” set a beautiful tone, acting as a calm before the proverbial storm. Now, with the Storm arriving in mere days, HBO has delivered a few new pictures the untitled episode.

The pictures, which you can catch over at Hypebeast, largely derive from the teaser trailer above, with a clearer shot a shook Ser Jaime, Ser Brienne, and some Vale soldiers likely questioning the decisions that brought them here. Jon Snow appears equally distraught, while Sansa and Arya share a moment pre-battle reflection. As for Varys and Tyrion, the pair appear to be holding it down in the crypts, though there’s no telling whether they’ll have to step up and fight or not. From the look it, Sansa is also in the crypts, which means several key players will be sitting this one out – at least for the time being.

Bill Cosby Accuses Judge Behind Bail Rejections Of "Racial Hatred"

Bill Cosby currently sits in a correctional facility in Pennsylvania since his guilty verdict on three counts aggravated indecent assault. The latter occurred after a year-long trial where numerous women claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Coby throughout his active years as an actor and entertainer. As such, it’s been recently reported that the former stand-up comedian was suing his previous defense team for allegedly cheating him out millions. The actor asserts the lawyers overcharged him and bamboozled him into a $9 million dollar invoice over the span 9 months. While we wait for further details on the matter, it seems Cosby decided to come for someone else.

Bill Cosby’s attorneys issued a statement the actor’s ficial Instagram page. Herein, they accuse the judge responsible for the rejection all  Cosby’s bail attempts racial bias. According to Page Six, the lawyers filed for temporary bail while awaiting a thorough review the 2017 trial’s technicalities. The reasoning behind this stems from countless appeals set forth by Cosby’s legal team, all which were reportedly dismissed by trial Judge Steven O’Neil.   

The disgraced star continues to deny any wrongdoing and has since deemed his imprisonment to be the result a set-up. One within which Judge O’Neil apparently plays a role. The Cosby Show star’s lawyers have asked for O’Neil to be removed from the case altogether due to his racist judgment impairing the case’s owed impartiality: “We’re asking that this scandalous judge be removed immediately, and Mr. Cosby be granted bail throughout the appeals process, because the judge’s racial hatred towards Mr. Cosby, clouds his better judgment to be a good steward the bench.”

Tyreek Hill Child Abuse Prosecutors Hosting Press Conference: Livestream

Tyreek Hill was implicated in two separate child abuse cases that allegedly occurred back in March this year. In a report, we published last month, it was revealed that Hill was allegedly a part a child abuse/neglect case that was opened up on March 5th, although by March 8th, the case was deemed as closed. This case also involved his girlfriend Crystal Espinal.

Just a week later, Hill was implicated in a more serious alleged incident where his three-year-old son ended up breaking his arm. Espinal was listed as one those involved in the report, although Hill was not. Regardless, the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office has been investigating Hill and Espinal and today, they are holding a press conference on their findings which can be viewed below, courtesy TMZ.

Hill and his girlfriend were not charged with any crimes at the time the investigation.

Hill has had a past domestic abuse as he plead guilty in 2015 to domestic assault and battery by strangulation. The abuse was directed towards Espinal who was pregnant with their son at the time.

Stay tuned for updates on this case.

50 Cent Disses & Promotes Young Buck All At Once For Alleged Transgender Partner

Last month, 50 Cent decided to turn one his old friends into an enemy. Young Buck had called him out for allegedly keeping him from releasing any new music and fulfilling the terms his G-Unit contract. Buck still has a lot to fer but the powers that be appeared to be stopping him from exerting his creative freedom. Shortly after that, Buck became the victim a brutal attack by 50 Cent when he exposed the rapper for having an alleged relationship with a transgender individual. As you know, sexual orientation is still a very touchy subject in the world hip-hop. If you identify as anything other than heterosexual, you automatically become a niche rapper or get clowned online. Young Buck faced the bare minimum humiliation that LGBT rappers have historically been subject to when Fiddy called him out and today, the tirade continued.

50 Cent tried out a different approach this time around, actually letting fans know that his former G-Unit compadre would be releasing an album soon. “He worked hard on this project,” said Curtis. Then, things took a turn when the message went from an encouraging promotional opportunity to a full-on roast. “I told him his personal choice to date a tran sexual will confuse some his core audience but with the support the LGBT he should be fine,” he wrote, adding his trademark hashtags at the end.

Young Buck will hopefully get over this situation, which has haunted him for months now. Keep an eye out for new music from Buck.

Justin Bieber & Ariana Grande Slam Morgan Stewart For Coachella Criticism

Ariana Grande invited Justin Bieber on stage during her last Coachella set and while it was a beloved moment for fans, Nightly Pop host Morgan Stewart had something else to say. “I did not realize it was going to be that bad.” Morgan said on her show, adding how Justin “definitely looks like he put an oxy pad on that forehead, but I don’t care. That is fucked up!”

Morgan’s comments came back to bite her after Justin called her out on Twitter. “Just saw a video you ripping me to shreds saying I was lip-syncing. They played the song and i just sang overtop it.. regardless why spend your time tearing people down. It’s People like you that are bullies at school that are making kids suicidal,” he tweeted.

The “Sorry” singer continued: “Imagine if you spent even half the time you spend laughing at other peoples expense actually building people up and encouraging people how much positivity you could bring. What hurts about this is the fact that you have a platform to make a difference.”

Ariana chipped in, explaining how Justin’s set was a surprise. “We also decided to do this ten minutes before my set started. we had 0 soundcheck, 0 rehearsal. u were singing with the back tracking like most cameos do. people are bored. people don’t know how it feels to be under such scrutiny. the world was happy to have u on stage again.”
