Kanye West Honors Kobe Bryant at Sunday Service

Kanye West pays tribute to Kobe Bryant.

In the wake of his tragic death on Sunday, Kanye honored the NBA legend during a special midnight Sunday Service in L.A. According to Billboard, guests included Kirk Franklin, who delivered a moving spoken word, while Chance the Rapper performed his verse on “Ultralight Beam.”

At one point, Kanye freestyled a verse in honor of the former Los Angeles Laker. “When I was driving home, they was pinning your jersey on the freeway and I just broke down,” he sang.

“If Kobe was here, he’d maybe grab the mic / If Kobe was here, he here tonight,” said a somber Kanye.

Ye also paid tribute to him on Twitter. “Kobe, We love you brother,” West wrote alongside a photo from a 2010 studio session with Bryant. “We’re praying for your family and appreciate the life you’ve lived and all the inspiration you gave.”

His wife Kim Kardashian West also penned a heartfelt note. “My heart is so heavy,” she wrote. “No one should ever experience what the families involved are going through. This has affected us all so much but I cannot begin to imagine what Vanessa is feeling losing her husband and her baby girl. I cry just thinking about it. I am praying for the Bryant family, the Altobelli family and the families of all who perished in this unthinkable tragedy. Rest In Peace Legend.”

Kanye was in attendance at Kobe’s final game for the L.A. Lakers in 2016 and honored him on his last day on the court with a line of Mamba Day-themed merch that read “I Feel Like Kobe” on the front and “Greatest of All Time” on the back.

Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash on Sunday in Calabasas, Calif. His 13-year-old daughter, Gianna “Gigi” Bryant, also died in the crash, along with seven others.

Other celebrities including Drake, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Bruno Mars, and Barack Obama have also penned tributes to Bryant on social media.

Tory Lanez Grinds On Megan Thee Stallion’s Booty & Realizes They’re "Evil Twins"

Toronto native Tory Lanez and Houtson-bred rapper Megan Thee Stallion both have the ability to spit absolute bars when they feel like it. As he continues to grow as an artist, Tory has been giving us flashes his old self, foregoing the melody magic and coming through with some quick-paced lyricism during his feud with Joyner Lucas and in select instances afterwards. Just starting out as a major label highlight, Megan Thee Stallion is making her mark on the industry with her grit, using her hard influences to craft a unique sound that was untouched in female rap. The two were in attendance at the star-studded Roc Nation Pre-Grammy Brunch and they decided to get a little silly with their photos, uploading them to social media.

“At this moment, me and @theestallion realized we were evil twins,” wrote Tory Lanez on a photo both musicians laughing maniacally. Earlier in the day, he had posted a similar shot him going wild with DJ Khaled. The second shot has Lanez placed behind Meg, grinding up on her frame and just being a general goball. Kehlani was a fan that one, commenting, “the second pic is SENDING. ME.”

Artists continue sharing moments from the Roc Nation Brunch, which we’re absolutely living for right now. Take a look at the photos below. 

Kobe Bryant Spent Saturday On Daddy-Daughter Date With 3-Year-Old Bianka Bryant

The last moments for the nine people who lost their lives in the Calabasas helicopter crash is something that no one could imagine. Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria-Onore “GiGi” Bryant were killed in the accident along with John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Alyssa Altobelli, Sarah Chester, 13-year-old Payton Chester, Christina Mauser, and pilot Ara Zobayan. As devastating as this news continues to be for a world mourning an icon, it’s reported that Kobe’s last hours were spent with his daughters.

It was previously reported that on Sunday (January 26) morning, prior to boarding the helicopter with his daughter and seven others—which was headed to the Mamba Sports Academy in nearby Thousand Oaks, California—Kobe and Gianna went to church together. According to The Daily Mail, the father-daughter duo attended “Catholic Mass and received Communion at the Cathedral Our Lady Queen the Angels in Newport Beach.”

TMZ now reports that the day prior on Saturday (January 25), Kobe spent the late afternoon with his three-year-old daughter Bianka Bryant enjoying the simpler things life has to fer as they strolled around Newport Beach’s Fashion Island Mall. The pair were captured on camera as Kobe watched his toddler admire the koi pond (you can check out that brief clip here). It’s reported that the Bryant family frequently visited the Fashion Island Mall and that it was a normal occurrence to see the icon with his girls at many the Orange County city’s local establishments. Scroll through a few Kobe’s family photos and videos from his Instagram account below.

Meanwhile, over on C. Breezy’s Instagram page, the entertainer left fans gossiping after he shared an enigmatic caption to his post. He uploaded a video that showed himself smiling flirtatiously during an interview and wrote, “When someone asks, after all this time… why are u still in love WITH HER? My ANSWER: BECAUSE TIME HAS NO RELEVANCE WHEN ITS UNCONDITIONAL ❤️.”

At first, Chris kept the comments open but after thousands came in within minutes, he shut his comments f. It didn’t take long for the singer to delete the post altogether, but that didn’t keep people from speculating about who this mysterious “her” is. People believed that Brown and Ammika Harris have been in a relationship as he’s shared loving messages about Aeko’s mother on his social media pages.

Yet, this new puzzling caption has caused the public to believe that he’s talking about his on-again-f-again ex-girlfriend Rihanna who is newly single following her split from billionaire Hassan Jameel. There’s also Karrueche Tran who is in a relationship with Victor Cruz. Tran and Brown dated on and f from 2011 to 2015 and reportedly split after Tran learned that Brown fathered Royalty with Nia Guzman. Check out his post below.

Tory Lanez Asks DJ Khaled For A "Rich N***a Laugh Picture" & Succeeds

If you were scrolling through the ‘Gram, you probably caught a lot those pictures among rappers where they’re all laughing at the same joke while a photographer captures the “candid” moment. 9 times out 10, the caption is along the lines “caption this” or “what do you think we were laughing at.”

Tory Lanez got one those pictures for the ‘Gram but to his own admission, it was plotted. The rapper congratulated DJ Khaled for his first Grammy win on Instagram as the two shared what appeared to be a genuine laugh. However, Tory Lanez made it clear that he was longing for one these “rich n***a” laugh photos for a while and had to hit up Khaled to accomplish this.

“Dead ass told @djkhaled I need the “rich n***a laugh picture “ … 😭🤣😂🤣😭 now all I need is one these with jay z and I’m set lmao … PS : CONGRATS TO MY BROTHER ON HIS FIRST GRAMMY,” he captioned his IG flick.

Last night was a huge night for DJ Khaled. Along with his efforts alongside the late Nipsey Hussle and John Legend, their collaboration, “Higher” earned them the Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. DJ Khaled also joined Meek Mill, John Legend, YG, Roddy Ricch and more in paying tribute to the late rapper with a powerful performance a medley singles. 

Dave Chappelle’s Reason For Missing Grammy Award Acceptance Revealed

When it was shouted into the microphone that Dave Chappelle’s “Sticks & Stones” had won the Grammy for Best Comedy Album, many viewers probably got excited that he would appear onstage to give a humorous acceptance speech. Instead, they got one those awkward moments when the presenters – in this case, Brandi Carlile and Tanya Tucker – wait for the applause to die down for them to inform the audience that the winner is not there to receive the award.

Considering how marred the Grammys have been by controversy, every absence from the ceremony tends to be interpreted as an act boycotting. This may explain why Taylor Swift was not in attendance at this year’s show. However, there’s a more simple reason for why Dave Chappelle wasn’t there to accept his golden gramophone: traffic. 

A representative for the comedian told Page Six that “It was nothing more than #LATraffic.” While this could suggest that Chappelle’s absence was beyond his control, he probably would have made sure to head to the Staples Center earlier if the Grammys were a top priority for him. He did eventually make it there, though. Photos show him mingling with Ellen DeGeneres backstage.

Machine Gun Kelly & Noah Cyrus Spark Dating Rumors At Grammy After Party

A few weeks ago, rumors circulated that Machine Gun Kelly left a Golden Globes after party with 46-year-old actress, Kate Beckinsale. She later shut down speculation that anything happened between her and MGK, who is best friends with her ex Pete Davidson, but MGK continues to build his reputation as an after party menace. The rumor mill is spinning again because he was spotted cozying up with Noah Cyrus at the Sony Music Entertainment 2020 Post-Grammy Reception on Sunday night (Jan. 26). 

Photos show the two recording artists posing with their arms wrapped around one another in a way that is usually reserved for couples. In one picture, Miley Cyrus‘ little sis affectionately lays her head on MGK’s shoulder. This marks the first time that Kelly and Noah have been seen getting this close, so we don’t have enough evidence to confirm whether they are dating or not. However, we’ll probably receive confirmation in the near future.

Tyler, The Creator, Lil Baby & More Brought Their Moms As Grammy Dates

While this headline could probably be read in the snarky tone an elementary school bully, I assure you it is not intended to be. There is nothing cooler than paying respect to the mothers the world. Especially in the lives artists, mothers can play a crucial role – supporting their children’s creative ambitions despite the whims and lack financial security they might entail. For that reason, when being honored at an event like the Grammys, it may not feel right for an artist to not be accompanied by someone who contributed so much to their success. Several rappers made sure to have their mommas by their sides at the award show on Sunday night.

Tyler, The Creator‘s creator shared the spotlight with her son as he accepted his award for Best Rap Album. She celebrated onstage, appearing just as ecstatic as she was when Tyler won Best New Artist at the 2011 VMA’s. Her boy has had his eyes set on this moment for a long time – despite his reservations about the Recording Academy – so it was special that she got to witness it in-person.

Lil Baby is another Atlanta star who walked the red carpet with his mother on his arm. He summarized how special a moment that was when writing in an Instagram caption: “Getting Mom Dressed Up , An Its Not For A Trial Or A Funeral , You Won.” 

While YBN Cordae’s “ma dukes” didn’t get the chance to see her progeny take home the award for Best Rap Album last night, she must have been incredibly proud that he was recognized f the strength his debut, The Lost Boy
