TMZ says celebrities will include Travis Kelce, Rob Gronkowski, Sports Illustrated Swim model Camille Kostek, Johnny Manziel, Machine Gun Kelly, Kane Brown, Trevor Bauer, Mike Clevinger, and more.

If we don’t connect energy how the world] gonna enjoy this summer?”

Drake’s Personal Private Jet Seemingly Gets Virgil Abloh Makeover

Drake probably isn’t flying anywhere anytime soon (we hope) but that doesn’t mean he can’t prepare for when the lockdown is over. Many rappers and celebrities have flaunted flying private. Drake, on the other hand, flexes a little bit differently than most. The rapper debuted his personal jet last summer as he celebrated the Raptors win, among other things.

Taking to Instagram, Virgil Abloh appeared to confirm that he’ll be the one redesigning Drake’s private jet. Virgil Abloh hit the ‘Gram where he shared a sneak peek at some redesigning he’s doing to Drake’s plane in an unknown location. “the tail number is a problem and the FBO is a whole other story,” he wrote. From the look it, Drake’s trying to camouflage in the sky with style as Virgil Abloh added some Nothing Was The Same-type aesthetic to it.

Drake and Virgil Abloh have maintained a steady relationship throughout the years. In recent times, the rapper recently debuted a customized Patek watch that he rapped about on “Life Is Good.” Sharing a clear image to his Instagram, Drizzy made fun all the hypebeasts in the world by captioning the image, “New designer you guys probably have no idea what’s going on in the scene super underground all good I will put you on to Veerjil Ablow.”

Drake & Popcaan Have New Collaboration In The Works

Popcaan made his ficial OVO debut in December with Vanquish. Surprisingly, there was no Drake feature on the project but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a few songs in the cut. We heard the “Controlla” leak which, let’s be real, should’ve made the final cut  Views but we haven’t heard anything from the two them as recently. Thankfully, that could change very soon.

Even though the summer is uncertain, it looks like Popcaan and Drake are getting ready to have the summer on lock. Tapping in with each other on Instagram Live, the two artists promised to send each other new music to collaborate on, even though they can’t physically lock into the studio together. “Yo, alright, watch. I’mma make a tune tonight. I’mma fawad it,” Drake promised before Popcaan stated that he too would make a song and send it back to Drake.

Drake did compliment another song that Popcaan sent over to him prior. Perhaps that might be something that Drake ends up on, maybe for his own album. He did recently confirm that he was in the studio working on a new project, though he hasn’t shared many details about it. It seems like there’s a good chance he waits until the Coronavirus pandemic to die down before he does that, though. 

Nike Air Max 2090 Drops In "Triple-Black" Offering: Photos

Nike‘s latest Air Max iteration for 2020 is called the Nike Air Max 2090 thanks to its contemporary aesthetics that remix the ultra-popular Air Max 90. There have been quite a few unique colorways so far and now, Nike is coming through with an fering that should be familiar to all you sneakerheads out there. Of course, I am talking about the “triple-black” colorway.

Pretty well every single sneaker in existence has come in a blacked-out model and the Air Max 2090 is no different. As you can see from the images below, the shoe is covered in black materials while the upper is somewhat translucent. This combination makes for a sleak and stealthy sneaker that will work with any outfit you decide to pair with it. As the summer approaches, these could certainly be a great pair running shoes for when the quarantine comes to a close.

If you’re looking to cop these, you can scoop them up over at Nike.com for the modest price $150 USD. Let us know in the comments below what you think this Air Max model compared to some the other iconic ones.

Shaq Displays Dad-Like Dance Moves Alongside His Sons

Let’s face it, this quarantine has provided very little sports content. Athletes and analysts are bored out their minds as there is simply nothing to do. Leagues are on pause and seasons are in a state purgatory. No one knows what’s going to come next and unfortunately, it’s not looking too good for anyone. Regardless, we are all in this together and now that we have some extra time with our families, many are taking advantage.

One those people is none other than NBA legend, Shaq. The former superstar has been spending time at home with his sons, Shaqir and Shareef. Shaqir has his very own TikTok and has been getting his dad to partake in the festivities. In the video below, Shaq brings the dad vibes as he tries to emulate the dance moves his children. While his moves leave a lot to be desired, you can’t help but commend him for trying.

With the NBA season destined to be on pause until the late summer, it will be interesting to see what Shaq and other analysts begin to do. Perhaps he will start doing breakdowns old games he was a part . If that’s the case, his social media will certainly be must-watch material.

In the meantime though, boredom has prevailed.

Flo Rida Allegedly Dodging Expenses Of Sick Son’s Medical Care

Flo Rida has not come through with the cheque to cover the medical expenses for his sick toddler, Zohar, for months now, says Zohar’s mother, Alexis Adams. According to Flo Rida’s custody and child support agreement, the rapper must reimburse the unpaid medical costs for 3-year-old Zohar’s treatment. However, Alexis claims that Flo, who has a net worth $38 million, has been violating the terms their legally binding agreement and has been ignoring the court’s order to pay up. As a result, Zohar’s medical insurance briefly lapsed due to non-payment, leading Alexis to pay thousands  dollars in the interim in order to regain coverage. Zohar, who was diagnosed with autism last year, has been battling health issues for most his life, and requires continuous medical treatment and therapy. Last summer, Flo Rida relinquished custody Zohar after a nasty court battle with Alexis, who fought for sole custody but demanded that Zohar’s father be required to pay a certain amount child support every month to ensure that the child’s medical bills were covered.

She’s been mailing the medical bills directly to Flo Rida’s lawyers, but has yet to receive any kind response.

Meek Mill Confuses Fans With "Best Summer" Tweet

Many us are anticipating the next few months to be pretty hellish. As we were prepping our summer bodies, a global pandemic broke out and we likely won’t be able to show out at the beach this summer. With social distancing becoming our new reality as we fight to prevent the spread COVID-19, Summer 2020 has effectively been canceled. Music festivals are being postponed, pool parties will not be allowed, and all our travel plans have gone up in smoke. For some reason though, Meek Mill believes that the coming season will be the best ever.

“This probably be the best summer,” wrote the Philadelphia rapper on Twitter in an excited manner.

His replies are primarily perplexed, with fans asking why he believes this summer is going to be so special. If we’re not allowed outdoors, what can we do that will be so fun? Does Meek Mill know something that we don’t?

Of course, this brings to mind the possibility a new album from Meek Mill. Despite the current state the world, music has remained a constant and many our favorite artists have already invested in home studios, meaning they don’t have much to do other than record new vibes. Perhaps Meek Mill will be dropping in the summer? That might be the only thing that could save us at this point.

In other music-related coronavirus news, Lil B has considered whether or not to use the Based God Curse on COVID-19. Hopefully, he comes through.

Lovers & Friends Festival Rescheduled for August

The show will go on. As more and more festivals get postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, Lovers & Friends is the latest to announce changes.

The sold-out festival was originally a two-day event scheduled for May 8-9 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif., but has now been scaled back and postponed due to the coronavirus. The one-day festival will now take place on Aug. 8 at the same location.

The lineup remains mostly intact with headliners Ms. Lauryn Hill, TLC, and Usher with special guests Ludacris and Lil Jon. The star-studded bill also includes Jhené Aiko, Summer Walker, Megan Thee Stallion, Nelly, Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown, Brandy, Ja Rule, T-Pain, Eve, Ma$e, Doja Cat, and more. Monica, Mya, Akon, and Sean Paul are no longer listed as performers.

“Thanks for your patience as we figure out how to make the show go on. Lovers & Friends has been rescheduled to Sat, Aug 8 (one day only),” the festival organizers wrote on Twitter. “All purchasers will be notified in the next few days with details about their order. We look forward to hosting you this summer.”

It’s unclear how they plan to accommodate fans who already purchased tickets. An email will be sent to ticket holders in the next few days with more details.

When it was announced last month, Lovers & Friends made headlines after several performers including Lil’ Kim and Ma$e claimed they had nothing to do with the festival. Snoop Dogg, who along with Goldenvoice is a promoter and booking agent, cleared up the confusion and assured fans that it was real.

LeBron James Goes Off On High-Fives & Playing Without Fans

LeBron James has been very vocal about the Coronavirus and how it has effectively shut down the entire NBA season. The Los Angeles Lakers star was recently on an episode ESPN’s Road Trippin’ podcast where he spoke about the virus and how it will change the way the league plays its games this summer if they decide to resume play. As he explains, this whole pandemic has him not wanting to give out any more high-fives.

“So what happens when a guy who is tested positive for corona and you’re out there on the floor with him and it’s a loose ball?” LeBron asked. “I ain’t high-fiving nobody for the rest my life after this shit. No more high-fiving. After this corona shit? Wait until y’all see me and my teammates’ handshakes after this shit.”

LeBron then went on to say how the league just wouldn’t be the same without any fans in the stands.

“What is the word ‘sport’ without ‘fan’?” he asked. “There’s no excitement. There’s no crying. There’s no joy. There’s no back-and-forth. There’s no rhyme or reason that you want to go on the road and just dethrone the home team because their fans and vice versa.”

James went on to say that he hopes the league doesn’t thrust itself into the playfs as they should still go through with at least a few regular-season games. Needless to say, LeBron is a bit worried about what is to come.
