By now, fans are waiting with bated breath for Eminem to return fire. Both Machine Gun Kelly and Joe Budden seem likely recipients for his wrath, with the former’s “Rap Devil” turning a variety heads. In fact, the history between Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly is rich and full passive aggression; read up on the sordid tale here. Though some may say Em is ficially on the clock, given “Rap Devil’s” potency, others opt for a “patience is a virtue” approach. Still, it seems likely that Em’s response is on the way, especially if friend and collaborator Mr. Porter is to be believed.
We can only assume that Em is hard at work recording his retort. Such theories were given slight credence last night, when Eminem made the rare foray onto Instagram Live. Those tuning in were treated to a lengthy clip Eminem playing “Ms. Pac Man” with zenlike focus. While it’s unconfirmed, it’s entirely possible that the session took place in a recording studio breakroom; where else might it be? In any case, Em and his team are clearly aware the hype surrounding his reply, and an impromptu IG session from a habitual recluse is bound to cause stirrings.
One particular video, as seen below, has even taken their theory-crafting to levels ten reserved for Game Of Thrones and Lost aficionados, pointing out that Machine Gun actually has Ms. Pac Man tattoos. Could everything be connected? We shall wait and see.
Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl running back Le’Veon Bell won’t be on the field for their season opener against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday and it’s anybody’s guess when he’ll rejoin the team. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports people involved in the situation “guess” Bell will end his standf Saturday, to avoid missing out on his $850K check, though comments from Bell’s agent suggest the 26-year old back might wait as long as Week 10 until he shows up.
Amid the holdout, multiple Steelers fensive linemen have criticized Bell, including Maurkice Pouncey who told reporters earlier this week, “Why play hide-and-seek? Why let your agent say this? Just man up and tell us what you’re going to do.” Guard Ramon Foster said Bell, “He’s making seven times what I make twice as much as (left tackle) Al (Villanueva) is making and we’re the guys who do it for him.”
While it’s clear some Bell’s teammates are pissed he has yet to report to camp, other current and former athletes have shown him support, including Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown. AB took to social media last night with a message for Bell that reads, “We all we got, we all we need. Ready to roll whenever you get back with us, family @LeveonBell.”
Dwyane Wade also hit up Bell on twitter: “get what you deserve my brother!✊🏾 If you don’t look out for you no one else will!” Former NFL wide receiver Brandon Stokley and ex-Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew called out the Steelers linemen for getting involved in Bell’s personal business, especially as it pertains to his money.
Check out some the Bell supporters’ comments in the tweets embedded below.
Prior to last night’s NFL season opener between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia natives Boyz II Men performed a harmonious rendition the national anthem that momentarily made fans forget about the league’s issues.
As conservative radio talk show host Michael Berry put it, “Hey @BoyzIIMen, an entire nation is applauding you right now. Beautiful rendition the anthem our nation. One the most glorious presentations it I’ve ever heard, gentlemen.”
Another wrote, “The
@NFL should fly @BoyzIIMen around the country so they can sing the National Anthem at every 1 and 4pm game. That was awesome.”

Cardi B is living her best life sitting front row at the numerous fashion shows that are happening in New York for this year’s fashion week. Earlier in the week, she was at Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer reveal and last night she hit up Jeremy Scott’s show with her sister by her side. At the end the night (and after the after party) Cardi went back to her hotel, stripped down and posed for a photo in front her hotel door that sees her rocking a black body-hugging one piece.
“Whole lotta woman,” she captioned the post.
A couple weeks back Cardi shared a nude photo on Instagram and after receiving some backlash she hopped on Instagram live and defended her choice. “Let me be free,” she said. “If I wanna be half-ass naked, why not? A bitch used to be a whole motherfucking stripper. If I wanna feel sexy, if I want ya all to see my motherfucking body, why the fuck not?”
In one 2018’s strangest, yet altogether not-unexpected pairings, Kanye West teamed up with Pornhub to direct their annual awards ceremony. The event, which transpired last night, found Kanye West premiering a new song with Lil Pump, designing various trophies, and bringing a new line merchandise to life. The exclusive clothing line, which celebrates the night’s big winners, can be seen and purchased at Yeezy Supply. In truth, one has to wonder which demographic the line is targeted for; it takes a truly brazen individual to rock a “Splash Zone: Top Squirting Performer” sweater.
In any case, Kanye West’s newest line will surely find a willing crowd, who have come to cherish his additions to the fashion industry. In case you were wondering which ladies earned the change to be immortalized in Yeezy history, the list goes as follows: Mia Malkova, Riley Reid, Lena Paul, Abella Danger, and Kendra Sunderland. A word warning, however; the shirts are highly NSFW, so if you’re doing your shopping on company time, do so at your own peril.

It’s safe to say that Mike Dean can get it done, even if the time constraints are dubbed unreasonable. Such grace under pressure is one the integral reasons behind his prolific 2018 campaign, which found him working on Kanye West’s Ye, Kids See Ghosts’ eponymous debut, Pusha T’s Daytona, Travis Scott’s Astroworld, Teyana Taylor’s KTSE, and more. Now, Entertainment Weekly has sat down with Dean for an extensive conversation, in which he breaks down some his memorable experiences and practices.
“That’s what usually happens. People come with the record done but just need a little more sauce on top,” says Dean. “That’s what I’m good at.” Clearly, Kanye West agreed, bringing Dean into the fold for his jam-packed summer run, which found five albums released consecutively; apparently, Dean found out about the ambitious release schedule when Yeezy tweeted about it. ” “I was like, that’s a lot work, but I’m used to it. I might have a few panics, you know, but it’s all got to keep moving.”
He reflects on making last-minute revisions the night before Ye’s big Wyoming premiere, which was almost thwarted by a dying phone. “I was literally making revisions that Kanye asked for right before we got in his car,” explains Dean. “We always get shit done, so I was not worried.” Upon arriving to the launch party, Dean premiered Yeezy’s album with twelve percent battery. “They were like, ‘Play it again.’ I was like, ‘Uh…”
Dean also reflects on Travis Scott’s “Stop Trying To Be God” studio session, which found Stevie Wonder walking into a veritable fog weed smoke. His reaction? “I can see!’” Peep the whole story right here.
Looks like it’s ficial. Thursday night (Sept.6th) Childish Gambino kicked f his “This Is America” tour in his hometown Atlanta at the city’s Infinite Energy Arena. While fans piled in to enjoy the show, Gambino made sure they left with a little something—no matter how devastating.
“Number one, if you’re at this show, then you know this is the last Gambino tour ever,” he said before the crowd in a clip uploaded by a user. “I love you forever for supporting me and coming out for this shit. Second, if you’re in here, that means you bought a ticket. So, you don’t need to film this shit. Experience this shit. This is not a concert. This is fucking church. If you’re not here to celebrate life, if you’re not here to enjoy your time here, if you’re just here to hear your favorite song, you should go home right now and do that. I’m here to have an experience with y’all tonight, you feel me?”
Of course, this echoes previous sentiments brought forward by the multi-hyphenate within the last year. After a period “will he or won’t he” debates, he’s put it in the plainest terms. Of course, it isn’t the final nail in the cfin. The Atlanta tour stop was host to a couple new tracks debuted live during the showand the “This Is America” trek will continue well into the end October as he weave through cities like Chicago, Toronto, Dallas, and wraps up at the Voodoo festival in New Orleans on October 26th.

Machine Gun Kelly has been making the best out his “Rap Devil” fallout. Arguably his most popular song in recent memory, the scathing diss has many looking at Gunner in a new light, from occasional crossover rapper to formidable foe.
