Smokepurpp has been spotted working with the likes Nav, Lil Pump, Murda Beatz, and even possibly Drake for that matter since releasing his Deadstar project back in October and signing with Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Records, but it appears that’s not all he’s got on the way. On Tuesday night, footage surfaced online Smokepurpp and ATL rapper Lil Yachty previewing some new music together while in the studio.

There’s no information about the possible collaboration unfortunately, like what it’s called or where it’ll end up, but from the little we can hear it sounds pretty dope. “Dont call my phone, that shit on do not disturb,” Purpp can be heard rapping over the hard-hitting production.

Robinson, 33, last played in the NBA during the 2015-16 season when he made two appearances as a member the New Orleans Pelicans. Since then, he has played overseas in Israel and Venezuela, as well as a brief stint in the NBA’s G League for the Delaware 87ers.

“I’m not a money guy,” Robinson said. “If basketball in the NBA was free, I would] still play. If the NFL was free, I’d play. Just because I love to play the game. Financially, it’s for my family, for my kids. It’s not really for me. I don’t care about the fame. I would still play. Even if it’s soccer, I would play.”
During his NBA career, Robinson averaged 11 points and 3 assists per night while appearing in 618 games.
He now joins a Tri-State roster that went 3-5 in the Big3 League’s inaugural season. In addition to Jermaine O’Neal, Tri-State included Bonzi Wells, Dominic McGuire, Lee Nailon, Mike James, Jeremy Richardson and Lou Amundson.

While Chief Keef is typically a quiet person for the most part, that doesn’t mean he’s afraid to speak his mind. The rapper uses social media as a way communicating his thoughts, whether anyone agrees with it or not. Like many other people, Chief Keef isn’t a big fan Donald Trump and he decided to share some thoughts the current president on Instagram yesterday. Today, he decided to send another message to Trump but it has nothing to do with his presidency and more to do with the Secret Service.

In honor Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, Chief Keef shared a photoshopped image himself walking alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at a rally with a sign behind him that read, “G.B.E FUCK TRUMP.” The rapper captioned the photo “Last time I was locked up Donald sent secret service after me!”
Today, the rapper hit his Instagram story to further elaborate on the photo’s caption. “Donald. Don’t send the secret service. K? It’s just a pic. No threat,” he said in the short video.

While it’s kind hilarious, his precautions aren’t unreasonable. Considering what many perceive Chief Keef to represent, a disclaimer to a president who could’ve taken it seriously was probably done out safe measures. And if Chief Keef’s claim that Trump sent secret services after him during his last arrest, he should probably make sure that Trump doesn’t do it again while he’s free.
Although Dr. Ronnie Jackson said the exam “went exceptionally well” there are still some areas Donald’s health that could be improved. “We discussed diet, exercise and weight loss,” Dr. Ronnie says in the video below. “He would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat, carbohydrates and from a routine exercise regime. He has a history elevated cholesterol and is currently on a low dose Crestor.”
Ronnie also listed other medications the President is taking that aim to help his receding hairline, rosacea and cardiac health. He takes multivitamins daily for overall health maintenance.
Donald also underwent a cognitive test that proved he was all clear in that particular department. “All clinical data indicates that the President is very healthy and he will remain so for the duration this presidency,” Dr. Ronnie adds.

The phrase “Gucci Gang” wasn’t necessarily something that anyone thought would’ve entered the public consciousness by the end 2017, but here we are. Thanks to Lil Pump, the man who is responsible for that eponymous viral hit, has (for better or for worse) galvanized the next generation hip-hop listeners with his standout track. Despite what you may think about the emcee, his song is actually doing more good than some may realize, specifically for those in need.

However, it’s not totally Pump’s doing. YouTuber Graham the Christian took on quite the challenge as part his mission to raise money for charity: to say the phrase “Gucci Gang” 1 million times. I repeat: 1. Million. Times.
Though that kind task would more than likely crush mere mortals, Graham was able to persevere and complete the verbal trek to a milli in just over two weeks. An added and underrated part all this as well: he had to click his mouse 1 million times to ensure that his counter was accurate. His voice and finger must have been sore by the end it. View a clip his last 1,000 utterances the phrase below.

Graham used the stunt to raise money for something called Red Nose Day, which helps children in poverty. Even though he completed the challenge, you can still donate to this very worthy cause here. There’s no word on if Pump himself is aware the initiative or if he’s made a donation, but I feel like Graham will have a whole batch new fans from the rapper’s support base to call his own after this.

Drake and his business partner Nessel Beezer, better known as OVO Chubbs, are set to open their new restaurant in Toronto named Pick 6ix. Though the restaurant has yet to announce an ficial opening date, it was recently the location for Cleveland Cavaliers star Dwyane Wade’s birthday bash, hosted by LeBron James.
In an interview with Food Writer Karon Liu the Toronto Star, chef Antonio Park — who Drake has tapped to design the menu for the restaurant — gave some insights into what local fans and foodies can look forward to from the new downtown destination.
“It’s a restaurant and sports bar … but it’s not going to have sports bar food,” he said “There are screens everywhere, so we’re not going for an eight-course omakase or white tablecloths. It’s something affordable for everyone, and I want to provide for families and couples who wouldn’t normally go to a sports bar.”
He also explained that the 30-item menu ranges from Mediterranean-style dishes, steaks and sushi to Latin and Korean fare.
“You don’t have to eat chicken wings and fries,” Park said. “I wanted to create something healthier.”
Park highlighted that he was aiming at a $50 per person price point.
“I want it to be affordable,” he noted. “If you eat a salad and a hot dish from the kitchen with some sushi, then you should be able to pay $50 or $60 per person.”
Pick 6ix is Drake and Chubb’s second foray in the restaurant business. Their first, Frings in Downtown Toronto, opened back in September 2015.
