Tory Lanez Roasts Drake’s Poolside Photoshoot & "Duckface" Habits

While breakfast is said to be the most important meal the day, Tory Lanez has adapted an alternative lifestyle. As he tells those tuning into his recent “Men’s Health” interview, the secret to his boundless morning energy is simple: weed. His glossy red eyes reveal the truth. With Chixtape 5 around the corner, Tory Lanez took to the corners the internet to field a few comments on some pure class clown energy. When asked how he manages to stay in shape, Tory refers to a blunt-smoking, McDonalds-toting picture as his “final form.”

“I eat tons food but every night I go on stage and do like 60-70 minutes cardio,” he explains, citing his forays into the 60-thousand-plus crowd as the ultimate in resistance training. “I’m making my way to the top like Hercules in that bitch,” he says. Next up, Tory revisits the time Drake roasted his “Gene Simmons Kiss Ass shoes,” his “Goth Babe Hot Topic Ass shoes.” Tory retorts as any man should – by roasting in retaliation. “Boy, if you don’t get your kissy-lips at the camera,” laughs Tory. “Your ‘my body looks good today I’ma take one in the pool-head-ass! Your lemme post five pictures like this! You my brother so I’ll leave you alone.” 

He also correlates the consumption weed and junk food to his receding hairline. “I was like fuck this, I’m going bald,” says Tory. “Then one day my assistant’s little sister was like ‘I like Tory’s music but ever since he cut his hair he looks like he’s forty or fifty years old.” He chuckles. “I met Tyga, I said ‘Tyga you didn’t have all that hair at that time and now you do. That shit is boomin. Let’s go. Got Tyga’s doctor on the phone, got my edges back.” All it cost him was free features for life. Check out the hilarious Tory Lanez interview below. 

The Weeknd Fails to Reduce Copyright Lawsuit on 'A Lonely Night'

A California federal court has a request by The Weeknd to reduce the scope of a copyright infringement lawsuit brought against him by three British songwriters who believe his song “A Lonely Night” plagiarizes theirs.

The suit was filed by Brian Clover, Scott McCulloch and Billy Smith, who claim The Weeknd copied their 2005 song “I Need To Love.”

The singer, whose real name is Abel M. Tesfaye, wanted to reduce the scope of the trio’s lawsuit by eliminating state law violations as well as secondary copyright infringement claims. But U.S. District Judge Percy Anderson denied this request, insisting that the plaintiffs had met what is known as the “plausibility standard” that has been adopted by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“The court concludes that the [complaint] alleges sufficient well-pleaded allegations to plausibly allege the secondary infringement and state law claims as alternatives to the unchallenged claim for direct copyright infringement.”

In April of this year, the 3 songwriters accused The Weeknd not only of copyright infringement but also of unjust enrichment.

The three claim that, in 2005, Big Life Music bought the rights to “I Need To Love” as well as other songs they wrote, which they believe were pitched to artists around the world. Three years later, Universal Music Group bought Big Life Music and the rights to “I Need To Love,” which they relinquished in 2016 after telling the three that they were unable to sell the song.

According to the three, The Weekend — only two weeks later — released “A Lonely Night” on his Starboy album, which not only topped the charts but also won a Grammy Award.

Judge Anderson has already dismissed many parts of the original suit, including claims for punitive damages, statutory damages and attorney fees. He also dismissed claims of contributory and vicarious infringement, accounting, constructive trust and unjust enrichment, but he gave the three the opportunity to amend these claims.

Subsequently, the three filed an amended complaint in September.

#DXCLUSIVE: J57 Premieres ‘We Can Be Kings’ Album

Veteran rapper/producer J57 is showing off his skills on the mic and behind the boards on his new solo album We Can Be Kings, which drops Monday (November 11). Ahead of its official arrival, the Brown Bag AllStars and Jamo Gang member debuts an advance stream of the entire LP on HipHopDX.

The 11-track project features collaborations with Ras Kass and El Gant of Jamo Gang, The Audible Doctor and DeeJay Element of BBAS, Choosey, Sid Wilson of Slipknot and more. Production is handled entirely by J57.

“I do the boom bap thing with Brown Bag AllStars, Jamo Gang or with my collaborative albums,” he tells DX. “I’m a very eclectic music listener. I also create music outside of Hip Hop, but everything I touch has the DNA of boom bap hip-hop in it, even if it isn’t easily detected. My solo material is a mix of all my favorite genres of music that I grew up listening to: Jazz, Indie, Alternative, Rock, Stadium Pop, Southern Hip Hop, but it’s all rooted in traditional Hip Hop.”

He adds, “When I do my solo thing, I bring in a ton of singers, musicians, sometimes co-producers and a few MCs. I approach my solo material with the attempt of making the best music I can make, with no specific genre in mind … it just happens to be genre-bending and I love that.”

House Passes Small Claims Copyright Bill for Damages Under $30,000

There’s big news on the copyright front — for small infractions.

Small claims court systems exist throughout the world and are a fixture in every U.S. state and county. The processes are streamlined and quick, with judges typically reviewing dozens of rapid-fire cases for claimed damages that are often lower than $10,000.

But does U.S. copyright law need a small claims tribunal of its own?

Now, a bill that would create a small claims division within the U.S. Copyright Office is inching closer to law.

Late yesterday (October 22nd), Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who is the chairman of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, strongly came out in support of the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act (CASE Act). The bill currently has bipartisan support in Congress, and just passed the House of Representatives this morning.

The controversial bill, which has raised the wrath of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the broader tech industry, would allow copyright holders to sue violators in a special and voluntary small claims court when damages sought are less than $30,000.

Nadler says that he supports the bill because he believes that many content creators cannot afford to protect their copyrights.  For starters, the costs of filing a suit in federal court are high.  He is now a co-sponsor of the legislation.

“Today, many small creators, especially visual artists, are unable to protect their rights because the cost of pursuing an infringement claim in federal court is far greater—as much as ten times or more—than the damages they could ever hope to receive,” Nadler stated.  “And, few attorneys would take a case where such limited damages are at stake because they would not likely recoup their costs.”

“It is a fundamental principle of the American legal system that a right must have a remedy. But if it costs $250,000 to recover a few thousand dollars from someone who has infringed your copyright, then what remedy do you really have?”

The bill would create a small claims board that would operate within the U.S. Copyright Office.

This board, which would be appointed by the Librarian of Congress, would resolve infringement claims with proceedings that would be less expensive than court cases and far simpler. Litigants would not even need lawyers (though they could receive free assistance from law students), and they would not have to travel, as the proceedings would take place over the internet and by telephone.

Infringement penalties would be capped at $30,000, but $15,000 per work infringed.

Nadler stressed the voluntary nature of the proceedings. Not only could plaintiffs decide whether to use the board but defendants, too, could decide to opt out of the proceedings if they would rather have the case heard in federal court.

“Importantly, the proceedings would be voluntary. Plaintiffs can decide whether this is the proper forum to file their claim and defendants may opt out of the process if they prefer to have their case heard by a federal judge,” Nadler said.

Nadler also thanked Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), who is the sponsor of the bill, and Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), who is the ranking Republican member of the Judiciary Committee.

The House passage is receiving wide approbation from the music industry.

In response to the passage in the House, the Association of Independent Music Publishers (AIMP) offered the following statement.

“The AIMP is glad to see the CASE Act moving toward passage thanks to the U.S. House of Representatives’ overwhelming vote in its favor. For too long, independent publishers and songwriters have languished under outdated laws that allowed their works to be exploited without proper compensation. Coupled with the recently passed Music Modernization Act, the CASE Act gives these rights-holders the tools they need to stand up for their rights. We encourage the Senate to pass this legislation as soon as possible.”

Daryl Friedman, Chief Industry, Government, & Member Relations Officer for the Recording Academy, also offered a thumbs up. “The Recording Academy applauds the House for passing the CASE Act today, another victory for music creators almost exactly a year after the Music Modernization Act was signed into law,” Friedman relayed.

The Recording Academy oversees the Grammys and advocates for the broader recording industry.

TikTok, Pandora Advertising Found on Pirate TV Platform TeaTV

An investigation by CNBC has shown that not only are pirated versions of popular movies and TV shows appearing on an online platform called TeaTV, but so are ads from major companies.

The companies, which include music industry heavyweights Pandora (owned by SiriusXM) and TikTok (owned by ByteDance), are inadvertently funding these activities through ads.

The investigation discovered ads on TeaTV from the following companies:

  • TikTok
  • Pandora
  • Hulu
  • Amazon
  • Walgreens
  • BET
  • Madden Mobile
  • Pluto TV
  • Yahoo! Mail

CNBC is pinning the blame for these ads on the complexity of the “digital content supply chain,” which makes it difficult for companies to track where their ads are appearing.  That’s an easy excuse for some, and many assert that companies need to do a better job in conveying to ad-tech firms which sites are unacceptable for their ads.

Beyond that, the ad-tech firms themselves could be more conscious of where they are placing ads. Still, it may be impossible to completely stop ads from appearing on sites like TeaTV.

The problem is exasperated by the fact that sites like TeaTV are not very transparent.

CNBC could not find where the company was located, or even if they are an actual company. There are no people publicly associated with the platform and no telephone numbers to call. All this makes it difficult to take these companies off the net and out of the digital content supply chain.

Cesar Fishman, who is a senior vice president for CreativeFuture, says that the placement of mainstream ads on pirate sites causes a multitude of problems. Not only are these advertisers in essence funding piracy, but the ads give an aura of legitimacy to the sites. It is quite possible that viewers do not even realize that they are watching pirated content.

While the advent of cheap streaming services has thwarted piracy in recent years, piracy is still a lingering issue. But massive piracy is now more of a video problem than an audio one, with music fans ditching torrents and downloading for free or low-cost alternatives like YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music. That’s putting enforcement groups like the IFPI and RIAA in a pickle, given that a major part of their missions are to eradicate piracy — which could be creating a perverse incentive to .

Azealia Banks Shares Message For Fans: "I Wish You Would All Shut Up"

Many would argue that Azealia Banks’s career and incredible musical talent have been tainted by her tendency to take shots at literally everyone. Many artists have been subject to Bank’s wrath, either being accused  stealing her style or simply not being too good at what they do. She even recently came for the universally-adored Rihanna for her weight gain

One can fantasize about an alternative universe where Banks hadn’t incessantly made such caustic comments and people would be able to stan her free any guilt. However, that is certainly not the reality we’re living in and there have been no signs that we’re heading in that direction. On Sunday, the “212” artist posted photos from her Elle Russia photoshoot and announced that she would be changing her Russian stage name. Banks has been spending time and recording in Russia, which seems to have been the birth place her recently-released mixtape, Yung Rapunxel II.  

After a fan commented on one her IG posts that they “just wished] she would shut up” so that her words would stop interfering with her work, Banks clapped back with a lengthy response. She even took a screenshot her response and posted it so everyone hears her message loud and clear. “I wish you would all shut up too!,” she wrote. “It’s really hard to focus and concentrate when the Internet allows non-ARTISTS and people with zero talent to have an opinion about anything.” The rest the reprimand follows along these lines telling people that their constant commenting on her life is responsible for the stifling  her career and output. “Music doesn’t come from me just because you demand it. Once you understand how you as an audience member need to stay in your place, stay in your seat, be quiet and not disturb the show on stage THEN… Azealia Banks will be the goody two shoes world wide phenom you want her to be.”

The Beatles Release a Monstrous Box Set: 23 Vinyls, 46 Remaster Songs

For fans of the Beatles, Christmas will be coming a little early this year.

On November 22nd, the Fab Four will be releasing a new box set of all their remastered singles.

The box set is entitled The Singles Collection and will include 46 remastered songs presented on 23 7” vinyl records. What’s more, the singles will come within reproductions of the original international sleeves.

The Singles Collection will also include an exclusive double A-side single that features both “Free as a Bird” and “Real Love” as well as a book of photos and ephemera. The book further comes with a set of essays written by Kevin Howlett, who is a noted Beatles scholar.

Formed in Liverpool in 1960, the Beatles are considered by many as the most influential rock band of all time. They were certainly among the most successful, with sales of 800 million records worldwide, with 178 million of these coming in the United States.

Interestingly, of the 46 songs included in the box set, 20 of them reached no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, which is still a record.

The news of the new box set comes less than a month after the release of another Beatles box set.  This one features a remixed edition of the group’s classic album Abbey Road, which came out a little more than 50 years ago. Produced by Giles Martin — the son of the original producer George Martin — and engineer Sam Okell, the remixed edition of Abbey Road also includes demo recordings, alternative takes and surround-sound mixes.

Abbey Road was the 11th and last studio album for the group before they split up.  While at first the record was panned by a number of critics, history has judged it as not only one of the best Beatles records, but also one of the best albums in rock history.

Tekashi 6ix9ine "Snitch" Costumes Might Be Huge This Halloween Season

Whenever Halloween rolls around, you can expect to see a ton people dressed up in reference to a recent trending topic. Remember all the people copying Miley Cyrus‘ look in the “Wrecking Ball” video or her infamous VMAs performance during the Bangerz era? There was also an unfortunate amount Donald Trump lookalikes at house parties around the election. 

Well, the meme the moment (or one them) is surely Tekashi 6ix9ine being a serial snitch in his ongoing trial. Many have been following the updates from his hearings, in which he name-dropped a remarkable number people, ranging from his former homies to fellow members the hip hop community. His comical willingness to tattletale spawned many jokes about him on social media, so his name and face are at the forefront everyone’s minds when they’re brainstorming Halloween costume ideas. 

Tekashi has a pretty distinct look – face tats, rainbow hair and all – so he’s the perfect caricature to emulate. Someone already anticipated this wave Snitch9ine imitators and decided to photoshop a ready-made baby costume for the occasion. A fake Amazon product has gone viral called “‘Lil Tattletale’ costume for baby,” hilariously sold by FBI Toys.

While the Amazon posting was fabricated, there is a kid who has already given the costume a try. He has all the requisite face tats and completed the snitch look with a t-shirt that says “I’ma tell on it.” 

Keep an eye out for the snitches this Hallow’s Eve. The Game has shared his thoughts on the potential trend

Tyga Wearing Travis Scott’s Sneakers After Kylie Jenner Drama Has Twitter In Tears

Somehow and someway, Tyga found himself back in all this Kardashian drama. He’s been trying to call “cap” on the events last week, including reports that he and his ex-girlfriend Kylie Jenner were spotted together just hours following her break-up with Travis Scott. As the internet does, everyone was gathered around their small screens with a bucket popcorn, waiting to see what would happen next. Already, we can see how this is going to play out on Keeping Up With The Kardashians but the juice just keeps on getting sweeter. This week, Tyga posted a photo himself with his stunning whip and phenomenal drip. It only took one person to get the comments started about his kicks though. Adding even more fuel to the fire, T-Raw was posted up in Travis Scott‘s Air Jordan 1 collaboration, making this situation even more dramatic.

The choice may have completely passed over Tyga’s head. He probably woke up in the morning and wanted to wear some fly-ass sneakers, opting for the Cactus Jack’s. He must have forgotten that the internet doesn’t play around with things like this though, pointing out the TS logos and running with it on social media.

Some fans are calling Tyga “disrespectful” for the post while others are just calling the move petty and moving on. Do you mess with this level sub-foolery or do you think it’s a little extra? Alternatively, y’all think Tyga just woke up and wanted to wear the one’s or was this calculated?

Vaping Related Deaths In America Rise To 17

CNN reports that vaping related deaths in the states has hit 17, days after popular e-cigarette brand Juul halted all its American marketing campaigns after the CEO the company stepped down. Alabama recently reported it’s first death due to lung disease that was associated with vaping, followed by Virginia and New Jersey health ficials who reported a similar cause. 

“While this current outbreak is being investigated, the safest option is to refrain from using any e-cigarette or vape product,” State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris stated. The publication details how The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has 805 confirmed cases patients with lung injuries due to vaping. New York has already taken measures to ban vaping and flavored e-cigarettes. “Vaping is dangerous. Period,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomoy stated. “No one can say long-term use vaping — where you’re inhaling steam and chemicals deep into your lungs — is healthy.”

“I have long believed in a future where adult smokers overwhelmingly choose alternative products like JUUL,” Juul’s new CEO K.C. Crosthwaite stated. “Unfortunately, today that future is at risk due to unacceptable levels youth usage and eroding public confidence in our industry. Against that backdrop, we must strive to work with regulators, policymakers and other stakeholders, and earn the trust the societies in which we operate.”

Cardi B "Tiger Woods" Album: Fans React To The Odd Title

After gracing us with a number hard-hitting mixtapes, Cardi B made her worldwide impact last year by releasing her debut album Invasion Privacy. The project is still picking up heavy streams on a weekly basis, serving as one the top hip-hop/pop albums its year. She’s been hard at work on her next album, teasing it for quite some time with cryptic information about when it could be released. At first, fans believed they may get it by the end 2018 but clearly, that wasn’t the case. Now that this year is coming to a close, Cardi has finally revealed her intentions to drop in 2020, telling the world that she plans to name the album Tiger Woods

The name the project took everybody by surprise but, with her explanation, it all started to make sense. “I’m going to name my album Tiger Woods, because remember when everybody was talking shit on Tiger Woods and then he fucking came and won that green jacket? That’s what I’m going to name my album,” she said during a live-stream. While the title falls in line with Bardi’s war against the media and how she continually gets slandered in headlines, some people still didn’t understand why she would go and name the album after one golf’s biggest legends ever. Social media was ablaze with people trying to understand her reasoning and some fans even gave her suggestions for alternatives.

Check out some the most confused posts below and let us know what you think the name.

Chris Rock Shares He Was A DJ Before Comedy Career While Honoring Rap Legends

The first time audiences saw Chris Rock on the silver screen was in the 1985 film Krush Groove. Rock had but a bit part in the legendary hip hop movie and his name wasn’t even mentioned in the credits, yet it was the beginning what has shaped to be a long-standing, successful career. At the time, the comedian got his hands on a copy the Krush Groove soundtrack that featured artists like Chaka Khan, Kurtis Blow, LL Cool J, and The Fat Boys. Rock was familiar with all the artists listed, except for this group called Beastie Boys.

From that moment forward, Rock was a fan New York City’s alternative hip hop group, and he paid homage to them and another iconic collective by writing the foreword for the new photo book Together Forever: The Run-DMC and Beastie Boys Photographs. Famed photographer Glen E. Friedman shares his images both the group’s rise to fame, and he called on Rock to pen the introduction.

“People always get caught up in what these two iconic groups stood for, but can we just step back for a moment and say, who gives a f*ck? They were good!” Rock said. “They made amazing records!…Rap parallels punk rock: Destroy everything that came before it and borrow little bits to help you get there. Bring it full circle: it helps us understand how and why these two groups did what they did, and why Glen E. brings us into the picture deeper than anyone and brings it all together. Forever. These photographs inspire and excite us to this day.” 

The comedian mentions in his foreword that prior to his bustling stand-up and film careers, Rock was spinning jams on the ones and twos. “I was a DJ way before I told jokes,” he wrote. “Run-DMC’s ‘Sucker M.C.’s’ taught me a lot about controlling the audience. I learned things about control and timing from playing the record at block parties that I use to this day.” Rest in peace to Jam Master Jay and MCA.

Ex-NFL WR Percy Harvin Says He Got High Before Every Single Game

Former NFL wide receiver Percy Harvin recently opened up about his eight-year career during an interview with Bleacher Report’s Master Tesfatsion, including his struggles with anxiety and how he constantly smoked weed to level himself out.

As seen in the latest episode “Untold Stories,” Harvin explained that he smoked weed before every single game during his time with the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets and Buffalo Bills. That would include Super Bowl XLVIII, when Harvin returned a kickf for a touchdown at the start the second half, as his Seattle Seahawks steamrolled the Denver Broncos 43-8.

Although Harvin won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks, he described his time in Seattle as “probably the worst years my life” because his anxiety is “worse when I go into unfamiliar situations.” Specifically, Harvin addressed an altercation with teammate Golden Tate prior to Super Bowl XLVIII.

Following the NFC Championship Game, Tate was asked about Harvin’s return to the field following a concussion that caused him to miss the game. Tate brushed f the speedy wide receiver’s impact, saying the Seahawks made it to the Super Bowl without him, which led Harvin to lash out.

“I was already wrapped up it didn’t even probably matter what his answer was. … I was already at 10,” Harvin said about his confrontation with Tate in the locker room (H/T Bleacher Report). 

Harvin noted that marijuana helped him deal with the anxiety throughout his career, and he made it clear that weed was a far better alternative than popping “at least” seven prescription pills.
