Brockhampton Shares Trailer For "The Longest Summer in America" Documentary

Brockhampton has shared a trailer for their upcoming documentary The Longest Summer in America. Dude Heifetz and produced in conjunction with YouTube Music’s Artist on the Rise program will premiere on September 17th at an exclusive screening in Los Angeles. The night the 17th, Brockhampton will screen the project at 5pm and 8pm for the modest ticket price one dollar. The unitary dollar amount also includes access to soda, popcorn and plenty other refreshments. After the premiere in Los Angeles the Brockhampton boys will option the movie to theaters in New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Austin, San Francisco, Auckland, London, Dublin, and many more to be decided.

The documentary is basically being billed as a road movie. A trailer has been made available the group’s Twitter page (check below). Also later in the month, Brockhampton will drop their first album without Ameer Vann, a project titled Iridescence. Earlier the group’s proto-leader Kevin Abstract told his ‘mates they ought to consider being more selective, and not so quick to release material. He came to this realization after getting a shrewd talking-to from industry vet Rick Rubin.

For now at least, the group’s DIY setup is all part their master plan.

Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov Press Conference Announced

There won’t be an extravagant global press tour for Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov – like there was when McGregor challenged Floyd Mawyeather last summer – but the UFC has scheduled a press conference ahead UFC 229 which should help build even more anticipation for the championship bout.

The UFC announced today that a pre-fight press conference featuring both fighters is scheduled to take place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Thursday, September 20 at 5pm ET. The Lightweight title fight will take place on October 6.

McGregor first laid the groundwork for his fight against Nurmagomedov back in April when he attacked a bus full UFC fighters, including the Lightweight champ, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The 30-year old Irish superstar recently plead guilty to a single violation disorderly conduct as part a plea deal that included five days community service and three days an anger management program.

McGregor (21-3) made his pressional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather last August but he has not fought in the UFC since November 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez at Madison Square Garden. Nurmagomedov (26-0) won the Lightweight belt in Brooklyn on April 7 by defeating Al Iaquinta  unanimous decision, after McGregor was stripped it for inactivity. 

ESPN’s Brett Okamoto writes, “Nurmagomedov has replaced McGregor as the most dominant force in the division, and is the No. 3 pound-for-pound fighter in the world according to ESPN. Stylistically, he is a dominant wrestler, compared to McGregor’s reputation as a devastating striker.”

On October 6 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, McGregor will look to reclaim the 155-pound championship he was forced to relinquish months ago.

Anderson .Paak's New Album Is Done, Dr. Dre Announces

The wait for Anderson .Paak’s forthcoming project, Oxnard Ventura is very real. Fans have been waiting for the project for a hot minute at this point and we’ve been getting bits updates over the course the summer. Anderson previously hinted at an August release earlier in the year but clearly, that wasn’t the case. Thankfully, Dr. Dre and Anderson .Paak just revealed that the project in finally done.

Dr. Dre took to Instagram to reveal that he’s done mixing Anderson .Paak’s upcoming album. It was announced in early July that Dr. Dre began mixing the album. Dre’s a perfectionist so it’s pretty shocking that in a little over two months he mixed the project to his liking.

Dr. Dre posted a picture himself and Anderson .Paak while holding a hat that read, “Oxnard” across it.

“Just finished mixing the album. It’s a celebration bitches!!” Dre wrote on Instagram. 

.Paak also made the announcement on social media. He took to both Twitter and Instagram to share the same photo with the caption, “Album Done. Time to bring it home.”

Anderson .Paak led the campaign for Oxnard Ventura earlier this year with the release his single, “Bubblin” featuring Busta Rhymes. It later received a remix from Canada’s Kaytranada. Shortly after, the single sparked the viral “Bubblin’ Challenge” across the internet.

Paul McCartney Clears The Air About Working With Kanye West

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…”

Kanye West & Lil Pump's "I Love It" Sparks Hilarious Viral Challenge

It was pretty much impossible to skim through your Instagram timeline this summer without seeing at least one your friends doing the “In My Feelings” challenge. Now that the summer’s over, it looks like there’s a new challenge making its waves on the internet with the help Lil Pump and Kanye West’s music video for their “I Love It” collaboration.

Kanye West and Lil Pump’s music video for “I Love It” was a bit outrageous, to the say the least. The unexpected collaboration was debuted during the inaugural PornHub Awards where Kanye West served as the creative director. The Spike Jonze-directed music video found Pump and ‘Ye in the shape Lego people with oversized attire as they rap their vulgar bars. Kanye also took it upon himself to poke fun at the tiny Yeezy slide meme that surfaced after 2 Chainz wedding in August.

The “I Love It” music video was meme-worthy at first glance and it was only a matter time before it sparked its own viral challenge. Over the past few days, people have been dressing up in boxes to mimic Kanye and Pump while dancing along to the music video. There are already a few hilarious ones surfacing around and there will likely be more in the coming days.

Peep a few them below.

Bryson Tiller Dropping Some New Music This Week

Prior to the last few weeks, Bryson Tiller had been taking a break from the music scene to concentrate more on himself, after being in a “dark place” and dealing with depression following the release his first two projects. “I was in a dark dark place after Trapsoul. It hindered me from everything you know, my creative process, everything,” he said. “It made me stop believing in myself. I just wanted to start over,” Bryson said while adding that his depression had a negative effect on his latest album True To Self as well.

However, despite battling his own mindset, Bryson informed fans a few months ago that he was ready to get back to the spotlight and release a new album called Serenity, which he said is “full summer vibes and songs that make me happy.” It was implied at the time that the project would be dropping this Summer, but unfortunately that doesn’t look to the case anymore. While we continue to wait for a release date, the Louisville crooner is about to hit us with some new original music this week in the meantime.

Bryson jumped on Twitter right after sharing his cover Drake’s “Finesse” record Monday night to announce that new music is coming this week. However he didn’t say exactly when that’ll be or what “some” means, but we’ll find out soon.

Check out the tweet (below) and revisit his latest fering “Canceled” while you’re at it. Who’s excited for new Tiller project?

Top Tracks: Machine Gun Kelly Scores Massive Debut With "Rap Devil"

We haven’t seen a song get this many hits in a long time. This past week, Machine Gun Kelly responded to the shots sent to his doorstep by Eminem on his new album Kamikaze with a diss track entitled “Rap Devil,” and it was far and away the most-viewed song the week. Like, we’re talking more than 10 times more people viewed it than the next-most popular track the week. 

Eminem and T.I. are tied for most appearances in the Top Ten this week with two apiece. New tracks barely missing out on spots include Kevin Gates and Don Toliver’s “Diva” remix (#13), Bobby Brown Jr.’s “Selfish” (#14), YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Young Thug, and Quando Rondo’s “Permanent Scar” (#17), and Queen Key’s “Diva” (#18). 

10. T.I. Feat Yo Gotti – Wraith

T.I. began rolling out singles from his upcoming album The Dime Trap this past week, and both songs in question debuted in the Top Ten. The first these is the Yo Gotti-assisted “Wraith,” which comes in at #10 in its first week out. 

9. Eminem – Venom

For all  Kamikaze‘s posing Eminem as an outsider, a maverick veteran the game, the album was anchored by “Venom,” a soundtrack cut from the forthcoming Marvel film about the comic book villain the same name. We waited to post this one until this past Monday, so it makes its debut this week at #9. 

8. Eminem Feat. Joyner Lucas – Lucky You

Another late debut for another Kamikaze cut, this one being “Lucky You,” on which Em calls upon likeminded stylistic fspring Joyner Lucas for the assist. This album cut debuts at #8. 

7. Logic – Everybody Dies

As Rick and Morty explained to us earlier this year in the runup to Bobby Tarantino 2, there are distinct differences between Album Logic and Mixtape Logic. Those are once again apparent on “Everybody Dies,” a track from his upcoming YSIV (aka Young Sinatra 4), which is a lot less thematically heavy than it seems on paper. This one debuts at #7. 

6. G-Eazy – Bad Boy

The sole holdover from last week’s Top Ten, G-Eazy’s “Bad Boy” is here again most likely due to its odd relevance in the MGK/Eminem beef. Eazy’s song, itself an MGK diss, was technically released before Kamikaze and its own MGK diss, making for a weird beef triangle between the three white rappers. In its second week out, “Bad Boy” is down two places from #4 to #6.  

5. T.I. Feat. Meek Mill – Jefe

The second the two aforementioned T.I. album cuts that arrived this past week is “Jefe,” which is probably higher up on the chart than “Wraith” due to the involvement Meek Mill as well as producer Bangladesh, whose beats have become more a rarity these days. “Jefe” debuts at #5. 

4. Jacquees – Trip (Quemix)

As many others have also done in the past few months, Jacquees fered up a remix (or, in his case, “Quemix”) Ella Mai’s sleeper summer hit “Boo’d Up” this past week. He chose to retitle his “Trip,” and unfortunately it’s been removed from SoundCloud sometime over the past few days. Nevertheless, the remix debuts at #4. 

3. Tyler, The Creator – PUFF

A year after Flower Boy lit up the summer, Tyler The Creator’s spent his 2018 warm season releasing one-f freestyles. In the past, he tackled popular beats new songs, but for his latest fering, “PUFF,” he repurposed his own source material, namely Cherry Bomb‘s “Blow My Load.” THis one debuts at #3. 

2. Kanye West & Lil Pump Feat. Adele Givens – I Like It

In one the more bizarre turns in what’s already been a bizarre year for Kanye West, his latest song is a horny collaboration with Lil Pump that came along with a video that features both rappers looking like Minecraft characters. “I Like It” debuts at #2.  

1. Machine Gun Kelly – Rap Devil (Eminem Diss)

For whatever reason, diss songs always play huge on HNHH, but usually not this huge. MGK’s “Rap Devil” racked up a whopping 520,000+ views in under a week, which is a good 480,000 more than its closest competitor, “I Like It.” Clearly, the song debuts at #1. 

Dez Bryant Trolls Cowboys After Week 1 Loss

The Dallas Cowboys suffered a 16-8 loss against the Carolina Panthers in the season opener on Sunday afternoon, much to the delight Dallas’ former Pro Bowl receiver, Dez Bryant. 

Bryant, who has yet to sign with another team, took to twitter following the Cowboys’ 0-1 start to the season to troll his former team. Additionally, he gushed over the possibility lining up alongside Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan on the New England Patriots, and hinted at possibly joining the Cowboys’ NFC East rival, the Washington Redskins.

The 29-year old wide receiver turned down a three-year deal from the Baltimore Ravens earlier this Summer and most recently visited the Cleveland Browns, whom fered him a one-year contract worth less than $5 million, according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio. ESPN reports that Bryant prefers a one-year deal so he can re-establish himself in hopes getting a bigger payday next season, but it’s unclear whether a base value less than $5 million is enough for him to sign with Cleveland.

Check out some his commentary from last night’s Cowboys game in the tweets embedded below.

Cardi B's Tom Ford Lipstick Debut Sells Out In Less Than 24 Hours

Cardi B teamed up with Tom Ford to put her name on a nice cobalt blue lipstick, making the perfect beauty collaboration. The release the shade came just a few days after Cardi stunned in an all-black Tom Ford dress and sat front row at the Spring/Summer preview. Monday brings about great news for the “I Like It” rapper since her lipstick has ficially already sold out. 

We’re not sure if the boost in sales for the lipstick had anything to do with her weekend brawl with Nicki Minaj, but nonetheless, this success in Cardi’s first venture in the makeup market is something to be proud – another money move. 

“People put this pressure on me and these expectations on me and trying to compare me to other women, and it’s like, ‘I never asked for that shit. I never asked for that shit.’ I came into this game trying to make money, make music and go on my way,” Cardi previously stated. “A lot people want to tear me down because they want to put me up there, and I never asked to be put up here.”

Klay Thompson's Next Anta Signature Sneaker Surfaces: Anta KT4

Golden State Warriors All-Star shooting guard Klay Thompson’s fourth signature sneaker with Anta is coming soon, and today we have our best look yet, courtesy Robbie Fuller, a designer for the Chinese apparel brand. Thompson inked a 10-year extension that could be worth up to $80 million with Anta last Summer.

Fuller took to instagram to share multiple shots  the Anta KT4, revealing a “Sport Lux” version the shoe that comes dressed in a sleek, black suede. The kicks also feature an eye-catching midsole design similar to previous versions Thompson’s Anta sneakers, as well as the brand’s FlashFoam cushioning.

Release details have yet to be announced, but we’d expect the Anta KT4 to be released in some Warriors-inspired colorways as we approach the start a new NBA season next month.

Future & His Baby Mama Brittni Are Looking Boo'd Up As Ever

Future typically keeps his personal life under wraps, especially when it comes to his relationships but lately, it appears that he’s back together again with the mother his child. Although they’ve had their ups and downs over the past few months, the two them are still going strong and it looks like they’re putting in the effort to make it work. Brittni recently shared photos her and Future looking super boo’d up and reminding everyone that cuffing season is essentially here.

Over the past few weeks, Brittni’s been showing f Future more and more on the ‘Gram and confirming that the two them are back together. Yesterday, she took to her Instagram story to share a boomerang herself tucking on Future’s dreads while he was asleep with the caption, “Get upppppp let’s gooooooo eat,” followed by a facepalm emoji. 

It seems as though Future was still feeling pretty tired to go out but he still did it anyways. She shared a photo herself with Future resting his head on her shoulder with the caption, “Chill.”

Future and Brittni have been spotted together on numerous occasions over the months. They hit a rough patch in the summer after Future was allegedly spotted creeping with another woman in Canada. Thankfully, they’ve worked their way through it and are still going strong.

Tyga & Offset Hit No. 1 On Rhythmic Songs Chart With "Taste"

This week, Tyga enjoys his first instance as the lead artist the No. 1 track on Billboard’s Rhythmic songs airplay chart.

It’s the Offset-assisted “Taste” that accomplishes the feat on the chart dated for the week September 8th, moving from No. 3 after experiencing a 5 percent boost in plays according to Nielsen Music. It also marks Offset’s first No. 1 on the chart as a solo act and his first solo entry on the chart overall.

The last time Tyga was at No. 1 was in 2014 with Chris Brown’s “Loyal,” which occupied the penthouse for two weeks straight. His next best performance as a solo act arrived with the Breezy collaboration “Ayo.”

Elsewhere,” Taste” moves up from No. 6 to No.5 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, moves to No. 2 on the Rap Airplay chart, and goes to No. 3 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart.

Since its release back in May, “Taste” has been an international summer anthem, ushering in a period resurgence for the Cali-bred rapper. The track is currently certified double platinum and this week, peaks on Billboard’s coveted Hot 100 at No. 8.

The same chart also becomes territory for another win by Drake as “Nonstop” enters the top 10, breaking his own record for the most top 10s on the chart since its inception in 1992.

Currently, Drake claims 45 tracks in the top 10 with the next best tally being Lil Wayne and Chris Brown tied with 40.
