Tekashi 69 has recently been snapped in a Colombia dental establishment flashing his signature grin – only this time, he’s rocking a new and improved shine. It seems the rapper was able to set aside some time from blasting his haters on Instagram, and celebrating his recent contract with Create Music Group to visit the dentist.

Don’t act like I forget y’all niggas were talking about that this Spanish song was not going to be a hit. ‘It’s 8 for 9. It’s not going to be on the Billboard.’ Nigga I made a full fuckin’ Spainsh record and the shit made it onto the English Billboard.”
The music industry is not the only area the rapper is set on conquering however. He recently begun branching out into the realm Fashion with a venture in New York which saw his Tr3way Entertainment label and online retailer Fancy.com collaborate in hosting a clothing pop-up. Unsurprisingly the event was received positively upon announcement, who better than Kanye West to co-sign an undertaking in fashion?

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch is known as one the most devastating running backs in the NFL, dishing out just as much punishment as he receives on any given Sunday. Even at age 32, which is considered old for running backs, Lynch has shown that he still has the quickness to hit a hole and the force to move a pile 300-pound linemen.
Just take his 10-yard TD run from last night’s game against the Los Angeles Rams for example:
That said, Marshawn wasn’t always as intimidating. He was a different beast during his days at Oakland Technical High School and during last night’s Monday Night Football broadcast, ESPN revealed a shocking photo what “Beast Mode” used to look like.
Naturally, the photo took the internet by storm and by this morning there were plenty memes comparing Marshawn today vs Marshawn in high school. Scroll through the tweets embedded below for some twitter’s best memes.
Earlier this summer, it was reported that Beatles legend Paul McCartney was warned against working with Kanye West, by none other than Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn. At the time, Albarn claimed that “Kanye West trapped Paul McCartney,” dubbing the collaboration “abusive,” and essentially using McCartney’s name for clout. Though he claimed to have texted McCartney, advising against the idea, Sir Paul decided to throw caution to the wind. Now, McCartney has sat down with GQ to open up about Albarn’s comments, explaining his perspective on the Yeezy studio sessions.
“I love the respect someone like Damon is attributing to me, but I’m not that fussed,” McCartney says. “If I want to go somewhere else from where I normally go or where I’m expected to go, I’ll go. And if I enjoy it, that’s enough for me. The great thing is, all sorts hysterical things come out it. I mean, there’s a lot people think Kanye discovered me. And that’s not a joke.” When asked whether he actually received a cautionary text from Albarn, Paul essentially shrugs it f. “He might have. I don’t remember. But I wouldn’t listen to him. I don’t listen to people.”
He proceeds to explain his rationale for using autotune on a new song, which caused him a fair moment anxiety. “I know people are going to go, ‘Oh no! Paul McCartney’s on bloody Auto-Tune! What have things come to?” Still, he managed to provide a welcome explanation, and one that few Beatles fans can deny. “You know what? If we’d had this in the Beatles, we’d have been—John, particularly—would be so all over it. All his freaking records would be…”

Kim Kardashian’s fame is her ass, no doubt. Her come up from a sex tape with Ray J reached an unparalleled height thanks to the creative displays her curvy figure. The fact that the social media star is now claiming to dislike her own tush is mindboggling.
During the last episode Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim shocked her family with her feelings towards her plump assets. Her sister teased her about the size her badonk, and although it was meant as a friendly joke, Kim was quite unhappy with the remark.
Kourtney Kardashian pointed out how Kim’s butt appeared in a particular position: “Kim, when you sit down your butt looks so huge”
Their mother, Kris Jenner, came to the rescue, defending Kim K’s sensitive soul. She told Kourtney that her comment wasn’t “very nice.” Kourtney was taken aback, course.

Subsequently, the names those who lost their lives in the attack were read aloud.
President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump commemorated the tragic event in Shanksville, Pennsylvania where a memorial was erected in memory the brave men and women who attempted to take control the hijacked plane.

What does this day mean to you?
It comes as no surprise that Kanye West would call someone on such a day that is Christmas to talk about his creative ideas and ways to collaborate. Maybe now that Kanye was three children and a very large extended family, he may no longer make such a call, but back in the day when he collaborated with Lily Allen on Common’s “Drive Me Wild,” he did the damn thing.
Lily recently chatted with Brisbane’s Hit105 Radio and explained a time she had to politely get Kanye f the phone one Christmas morning “a long time ago.”
“He wanted to speak about for like an hour and a half, and I was like ‘ahhh I’m kind busy Kanye. I have some presents to open and turkey to cook and stuff, but thanks for calling!'” she said, NME. She later praised his work ethic since witnessing it first-hand calling him “very focused”.
In other Ye news, he’s ficially back on Instagram. No one really knows how long his Insta-returns will last but he’s posted a few things that make give clues to his next creative idea. Check it out here.
Nicki Minaj has been all over the place during this year’s edition New York Fashion Week, making headlines for her insane episode Queen Radio yesterday where she ripped into Cardi B, and for her fight with the artist at an exclusive event. On yesterday’s radio show, Nicki found a soundbite the “Bodak Yellow” singer saying that nothing is f limits in a beef, even children, revealing her as a possible hypocrite. With their feud centering around how family should never be brought into a beef, this may have been the perfect opportunity for Nicki to step out with her mother, attending the Oscar de la Renta show with Momma Minaj.
Nicki held hands with her mother, Carol Maraj, as they posed for some quick photos and the resemblance is truly uncanny. You can tell that Nicki picks up a lot her facial features from her mom and the “Chun-Li” singer even inspired her matriarch to rock a similar hairstyle. The two looked stunning in their gowns at the show and Nicki made sure to publish a few the shots they took together.
Cardi B has been pretty silent since the Queen Radio tirade yesterday, choosing to remind everyone her influence in an indirect fashion. This feud is likely nowhere near finished and we’ll keep you posted throughout.
While superhero movies don’t always fare well at the Academy Awards, barring exceptions like Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight or James Mangold’s Logan, perhaps the winds change are blowing. Disney is willing to hedge their bets on it. Today, the studio has revealed their For Your Consideration list, which reveals intentions pushing Black Panther for damn near every available category. The move marks the first time Marvel has made a serious Oscar push, and it’s hard to say whether or not such designs will yield tangible results. In any case, Marvel clearly values Black Panther’s chances for the following:
Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Chadwick Boseman), Best Supporting Actor (Michael B. Jordan, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Sterling K. Brown, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis), Best Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, and Angela Bassett), Best Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Film Editing, Costume Design, Visual Effects, Original Score and Original Song for “All The Stars.” The latter would mark an Oscar nomination for both Kendrick Lamar and SZA, which would tick f another box in K.dot’s EGOT checklist.
Despite Black Panther’s status as a fan favorite, it’s hard to say whether or not a Marvel film can successfully reign supreme in such a ceremony. The Academy historically tends to value a certain type film, though they have broadened their horizons late. It’s still a little too early to tell which films are shaping up to clean house at the upcoming Oscars. Do you think Black Panther has a chance?
Yesterday we reported on the burglary that took place at Post Malone’s former home, where two armed robbers broke into the residence, pistol-whipped the tenants and yelled “Where’s Post Malone?!” before stealing $20K worth merchandise. The robbers didn’t realize that Post does not live there anymore and the new owners have no connection to the rapper.
According to The Sun, the burglary only took place after Jake Paul (Logan Paul’s brother) posted a video on YouTube showing where Post Malone lived (address and all) as he dropped f a box merchandise, filming one his many vlogs. Cops are investigating if this break-in has anything to do with the numerous other robbings that involve Wiz Khalifa, Christina Milian and John Mayer.
This misfortune is Post’s third traumatic situation that has happened in just a short number weeks. First, his plane had to make an emergency landing, then he seriously crashed his Rolls-Royce and now this targeted robbery gone wrong. Luckily he’s lived to tell the tale each.
The Capo has spoken. With the anticipated Diplomats reunion still in the works, Jim Jones has come through to provide an update on the project. The veteran rapper took to Instagram to reveal a tracklist, which may or may not be complete. In any case, we’re looking at nine songs, and contributions from Jim Jones, Cam’Ron, and Juelz Santana. As for features, it seems like Belly is the only supporting player on deck, set to appear alongside Santana and Jones for “On God.”
It’s strange, but it doesn’t appear to feature any songs in which Cam, Juelz, and Jim Jones grace the mic as a unit; the majority selections appear to feature two artists, unless the tracklist is incomplete. Either way, with Heatmakerz on deck for production, this one should be some nostalgia-inducing fire. The tracklist reads as follows:
1. Intro (Juelz)
2. Live Forever (Jim Jones x Cam’Ron)
3. Sauce Boss (Jim Jones x Juelez)
4. On God (Juelz x Jim Jones) ft. Belly
5. Big Deal (Cam’Ron x Jim Jones)
6. Oh Lord (Cam’Ron x Jim Jones)
7. Celebrating Life (Julez x Jim Jones)
8. By Any Means (Julez x Jim Jones)
9. Sets Back (Cam’ron x Jim Jones)
