Hit-Boy & Boi-1da Drop New Drake, Big Sean & Nipsey Hussle Tracks During Instagram Live Battle

The ‘Gram – On Thursday (March 26), Grammy award-winning producer Boi-1da posted a promo of his Friday night beat battle against fellow producer Hit-Boy slated for Friday night on Instagram Live.

The epic duel lasted over two hours and stunned its audience that peaked at over 17,000 viewers as Hit-Boy and Boi-1da dug deep into their bags and leaked new songs that they crafted in collaboration with Tee Grizzley, Drake, Roddy Ricch, Nas, Big Sean and Nipsey Hussle.

Several high profile viewers who tuned in simultaneously were Drake, Joe Budden, Kevin Durant, Russ, Timbaland, Swizz Beatz.

Hit-Boy also reached back into his back catalog of production credits including A$AP Rocky’s “Goldie,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle,” and “Bow Down/I Been On” by Beyoncé.

But as the battle intensified, Boi-1da swung back some hard moves by putting out new tracks such as Big Sean featuring the late Nipsey Hussle on their song possibly titled “Street Legend.”

Boi-1da Explains His Participation In Rémy Martin’s Producer Competition

Big Sean even suddenly appeared for a short tag team with Boi-1da to surprise the viewers, much to Boi-1da’s chagrin.

“Yo, Sean, why’d you snap like that? Relax, bro,” Boi-1da said.

Hit-Boy also dropped an untitled new Nas cut, which Hit-Boy had to admit “that’s nasty.”

Just as several viewers thought Boi-1da was on the ropes, he struck back with his own heat with an earnest warning.

“You remember when Trump and Kim Jong-Un were beefing and talking about nukes and shit? You know all that shit? I gotta press the red button. I’m not even playing with you, Hit-Boy,” Boi-1da said before he released Drake and Roddy Ricch’s new song.

Boi-1da doubled down for Drake fans by releasing his other new track with 6ix god’s which is speculatively called “I Did.”

The Twittersphere and Instagram realm was on fire as viewers chimed in about who they believe was the victor.

But Boi-1da was respectful to his opponent by tweeting about the competitive fun following the battle.

“Hit-Boy is one of the greatest of our generation. DON’T AT ME… That was epic, love to everyone that tuned in,” Boi-1da said.

Britney Spears Was Only Joking About Beating Usain Bolt’s World Record

Britney Spears was “obviously joking” about being faster than Usain Bolt, when she claimed to have beat the world-renowned sprinter’s 100 metre dash world record time. The super fit former pop star is constantly documenting her workouts on social media, and on Wednesday, Britney shared a fitness update with her followers  Instagram. In a since-deleted post, Brit had shared a screenshot her stopwatch app, which had a “00:05.97” timestamp on it, and claimed in the caption to have sprinted 100 metres in that short time, beating her previous attempts. Many fans doubted the validity Brit’s supposed time, considering how absurdly fast she’d have to be to do the 100 metre dash in less than 6 seconds. Many them pointed out that it was highly unlikely she was telling the truth, since Usain Bolt currently holds the world record for running that same distance in 9.58 seconds. Did Britney really think we’d believe she was faster than the fastest person on earth?

Apparently, no. In another since-deleted post, Britney cleared the air about the whole “I beat the world record for fastest sprinter” thing, indicating that, course, she was kidding. “Obviously I was joking about running the 100 meter dash in 5.97 seconds,” she wrote on the post. “The world record is held by Usain Bolt which is 9.58 seconds …. but you better believe I’m coming for the world record 😂 !!!! #joking #workbitch.” We’d honestly love to see Britney actually beat Usain’s world record. Anything is possible!

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been proving himself to be one the best players in the entire NBA and prior to the NBA hiatus, he was in the discussion to win his second-straight NBA MVP award. Now, he spends most his time on IG Live where he answers fan questions. Recently, Giannis was talking about who he hatest to play in front the most. Giannis even mentioned the Toronto Raptors and how Drake is pretty up there. However, Giannis immediately retracted his Drake statement and claimed that Raptors Superfan Nav is the one who annoys him the most because the way he is constantly talking trash.

Nav saw the clip Giannis’ admission and immediately took to Twitter where he noted that everything he says is all fun and games. The superfan even fered Giannis a meal for the next time he comes to Toronto.

Hahaha @Giannis_An34 love you like family before and after the game but during those 48 minutes I have to do whatever it takes to give my boys the edge! You have to know when you visit Toronto you get the 1-2 punch @Drake then the superfan 🙂 dinner on me next time #staysafe,” Nav wrote.

Clearly, these two have a friendly rivalry that is all in good fun. For Nav, the rivalry has been just a tad one-sided so far. Perhaps that will change when the Bucks beat the Raptors in a playf series.

"The Office’s" Final Season Almost Introduced A Surprising Twist

The Office is one the most popular sitcoms all-time and is beloved by fans all over the world. Two the most popular characters on the show were Jim and Pam. These characters started out as good friends and as the seasons progressed, they fell in love and got married. If you’ve seen the show, then you know the ninth and final season was pretty turbulent for these characters. Jim accepted a job in Philadelphia which left him apart from Pam. While their relationship was strained, they eventually pulled through and stayed together.

In a new book by Andy Greene called The Office: The Untold Story the Greatest Sitcom the 2000s, the show’s writers and actors talk about how they actually wanted to have Jim and Pam split up while eventually getting back together in the final episode. As Jim actor John Krasinski noted, it could have made for an interesting dynamic.

"The Office's" Final Season Almost Introduced A Surprising Twist

“My whole pitch to Greg Daniels] was that we’ve done so much with Jim and Pam, and now, after marriage and kids, there was a bit a lull there,” Krasinki said to Greene. “For me it was, ‘Can you have this perfect relationship go through a split and keep it the same?’ which course you can’t. And I said to Greg, ‘It would be really interesting to see how that split will affect two people that you know so well.’”

Had this storyline taken place, numerous fans would have been in shambles. Luckily for the hearts many, the show finished on a happy note for all the characters, specifically Jim and Pam.

While the two them are cool with each other now, Tristan’s various cheating scandals has caused a ton tension between them in the past. Back when Khloe and Tristan were not on great terms, Khloe’s siblings—particularly Kim Kardashian—were not the biggest fans Tristan. Considering the show was filmed many months ago, the events the episode are long behind them, but it’s still uncomfortable for Khloe to watch Tristan hear what her sisters have said about him behind his back. Khloe was live-tweeting the premiere on Thursday, and admitted that watching the show with Tristan is “awkward.”

“I love that tristan is watching this premiere with me and he is now seeing what they say when he’s not around,” she wrote. “Lol AWKWARD!!” The first episode chronicled the lingering fallout from Tristan’s cheating scandal with former family friend, Jordyn Woods. At one point, Kim confronts the NBA star at dinner and tells him she is “livid” with him. 

“The most uncomfortable dinner EVER lol,” Khloe tweeted about the scene. However, onscreen, Kim claims that the evening was completely fine with no tension. “I love that Kimberly says nobody was awkward,” Khloe tweeted. “Because I was tense watching that.”

Kim also addressed the events the episode on Twitter while the episode was airing, indicating that she feels very differently about Tristan now. “I actually LOVE Tristan now like a brother FR!” she tweeted. “We totally bonded and worked through our issues and love him.”

The episode also saw an explosive fight break out between Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, which was previewed in a clip last month. The altercation turned violent after Kim criticized Kourtney’s work ethic.

After having two kids with Omarion, Apryl Jones made waves by sending out some serious Yoko Ono vibes and linking up with Omarion’s B2K bandmate Lil Fizz.

I can’t not be happy because I think that the happiness comes from being happy and y’all trying to really make me mad, but I don’t know how to be mad. I’m not a mad person.”

“So, the game goes on and the fourth quarter comes. I mean he’s getting every call, he’s foulin’, they not callin’ shit. And he’s like, ‘I told you … Let’s go, let’s give the world what they want to see,” Anthony said. “He’s foulin’ me, grabbin’ me; he come down, I foul him hard … we just talkin’ trash. I had my braids done. The most disrespectful thing you can do is touch someone’s braids … He hit the bottom my braids, like ‘Calm down, little bro.’ He little-bro’d me. He sonned me!”

Melo’s play eventually earned Kobe’s respect and the two had been friends since that incident. Wade couldn’t help but laugh as they both came to the conclusion that Kobe was one the best to ever do it.
