When you’re making $59 million dollars year and becoming the highest paid comedian in the world, its easy to laugh f critics or anyone coming for you, and that’s exactly what Kevin Hart did yesterday. Fellow Philadelphia homie Meek Mill decided to have some fun at the expense Kev’s image, and roast him for his latest IG pic.

Lil Uzi Vert Teases Remix Of SimxSantana’s "FLEXIN N’ FLASHIN"

It’s an amazing thing to watch a one-f song with a DIY video on YouTube blow up out seemingly nowhere. SimxSantana’s “FLEXIN N’ FLASHIN” is following this trajectory. Posted only four months ago, the music video is now approaching 8 million plays. The Philly artist took a year hiatus from music and returned with this song. The story the song’s success is SimxSantana doing a little dance to it at a cookout, and then as is ten the case with a catchy song and well-suited dance, people shared themselves trying to copy it on social media. With only “FLEXIN N’ FLASHIN” on streaming services and two music videos on YouTube, the 19-year-old has already signed a deal with Columbia Records.

When you start buzzing in your city, the ultimate validation comes from receiving the recognition your hometown heroes. SimxSantana has already gotten a co-sign on Twitter from Philly legend, Meek Mill, and the two have been seen in the studio together. Now, another big Philly name is paying his respects: Lil Uzi Vert. On Tuesday night, Uzi shared a snippet a remix he recorded to “FLEXIN N’ FLASHIN” on his Instagram story. In his No Jumper interview last month, SimxSantana said that his goal is to work with artists from his city first, listing Uzi as one them, so seeing him hop on the remix must be incredibly gratifying. 

Be on the lookout for the remix and expect to be seeing a lot more SimxSantana soon. 

Meek Mill Reflects On Sharing The Stage With Nipsey Hussle

Before he was violently murdered on March 31st, Nipsey Hussle was in the midst preparing a prolific run. Evidently, one his plotted releases happened to be a collaborative project with Meek Mill, which he detailed to Billboard. “We’ve been cutting ideas and just getting in. We got a couple records that’s going to go f for the summer. It’s not hard at all we just got to lock in and get the records done,” said Nipsey, on March 11th. “We working right now as we speak. We on album time right now. Next thing we going to put out musically is an album.”

Sadly, the project never came to be. Yet such is a testament to Meek and Nipsey’s mutual respect, as both friends and collaborators. As such, it’s no wonder that Nip left a lasting impact on the Dreamchaser. Meek recently took to Instagram to pay homage to Neighborhood Nip, sharing a picture the Motivation Tour with some uplifting words to match.

“Anything can happen when you out here popping every night,” writes Meek, quoting his recent SAINt JHN collaboration “Anything Can Happen.” “Gotta risk it all tryna live a legendary life!” While it’s uplifting to see Nipsey’s presence inspiring the game to this day, it remains difficult to process the harsh reality his passing. Respect to Meek for keeping his memory alive, and it stands to reason that Nip would be proud his friend’s recent business endeavors. RIP Nipsey Hussle.

Meek Mill Shares Hilarious Video Of Rick Ross Dancing & It’s Our Monday Mood

With Port Of Miami 2, Rick Ross managed to earn himself the No. 1 hip-hop album in the country this week, debuting at the second spot on the overall chart. With the achievement, Rozay has charted his tenth major-label album inside the Top Ten, which is a pretty solid feat. We don’t regularly see the Florida legend turning up to celebrate these sorts things and, if he is out and about, he’s usually pretty reserved. He’ll still hit the club but it’s generally all business for the Bawse. Things were different this weekend when Meek Mill decided to share a video his good friend enjoying the accomplishment with a quick little dance and you’ve never seen the rapper do anything quite like this.

Rick Ross Responds To Nicki Minaj’s "Sit Your Fat Ass Down" Comment

New York, NY – Rick Ross stopped by The Breakfast Club this week to discuss Port Of Miami 2, his forthcoming memoir Hurricanes and a bevy of other topics. After revealing he used to sleep on Erick Sermon’s floor back in the day, he was inevitably asked about the comments Nicki Minaj made about him during a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast. 

Nicki claimed she went to speak with President Obama about Meek Mill, her boyfriend at the time, and saw a text from Ross calling her a “keeper.” So when Ross dissed her on 2017’s Rather You Than Me track “Apple Of My Eye,” she told Budden she believed it was a cheap tactic sell records and ordered Ross to “sit your fat ass down.”

Ross explained to The Breakfast Club (rather diplomatically) that Nicki was an obstacle between Drake and Meek back then but is grateful everyone moved on.

“I mean, if somebody went to meet Obama with you, she is a keeper until you find out otherwise,” Ross said. “She was around me a few times but other than that, she was a huge talent but she was playing a very important position at the time. She was in between Meek and Drake at the time. And what she don’t know, and what she might not understand coming from a big homie like myself, playing that position, that was a very fragile role. And it would be very easy to put that responsibility on her. But that ain’t what I tried to make it to.

“But most definitely when I seen it go sour, it would be easy to assume she may have had something to do with that and if somebody tells you they didn’t, they’re lying. But everybody moved forward. She moved forward, she doing her thing. I’m happy to see her do that. Meek doing his thing. Drizzy, they doing they thing.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Ross opens up about his various business endeavors, his relationship with T.I., health issues and more.
