Not too long ago Lil Duval and Charlamagne Tha God had social media in a craze when they dropped their monogamous anthem “Black Men Don’t Cheat” and though Duval might’ve rubbed some people the wrong way with a recent tweet they might be willing forgive him after peeping the clip to his latest hit… or not.
Linking up with the God for the visuals to the aforementioned cut, Lil Duval continues to live his best life in the pool while rebuffing the advances of bikini clad women looking to get his attention. What’s the chances Eric Benét hops on the remix?
From the glitz to the gritty, Ghostface Killah enjoys the come up he claimed in his previous clip and turns up in the club with his goons and girls for his video to “Party Over Here.”
Even though we had high hopes for Woodstock 50, it now looks like the often-delayed, plague-ridden music festival that was supposed to go down in just a few weeks has officially been called off.
Variety is reporting that multiple sources have confirmed the news, with many of the vendors and stakeholders being informed of the cancellation as of this morning. There’s also an official statement that was released that tries to explain how the 50th anniversary celebration made a turn for the worse.
Read the official statement from Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang below:
“We are saddened that a series of unforeseen setbacks has made it impossible to put on the Festival we imagined with the great line-up we had booked and the social engagement we were anticipating. When we lost the Glen and then Vernon Downs we looked for a way to do some good rather than just cancel. We formed a collaboration with HeadCount to do a smaller event at the Merriweather Pavilion to raise funds for them to get out the vote and for certain NGOs involved in fighting climate change. We released all the talent so any involvement on their part would be voluntary. Due to conflicting radius issues in the DC area many acts were unable to participate and others passed for their own reasons. I would like to encourage artists and agents, who all have been fully paid, to donate 10% of their fees to HeadCount or causes of their choice in the spirit of peace. Woodstock remains committed to social change and will continue to be active in support of HeadCount’s critical mission to get out the vote before the next election. We thank the artists, fans and partners who stood by us even in the face of adversity. My thoughts turn to Bethel and its celebration of our 50th Anniversary to reinforce the values of compassion, human dignity, and the beauty of our differences embraced by Woodstock.”
— Michael Lang, Woodstock co-founder
After losing major headliners, including JAY-Z and most recently Miley Cyrus, the music festival organizers were still hoping to put on a show at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Baltimore for Aug. 16 to 18, even going so far as to make it free to attend. Hopefully they can find a way to honor the Woodstock legacy because it truly does hold huge significance in music history.
Were you planning on attending Woodstock 50? Let us know over on our Facebook and Twitter, and peep one of our favorite memories from the original Woodstock 1969 festival below from the legend Jimi Hendrix:
Woo hah! Busta Rhymes put a passenger in check on a flight to London.
Shortly before take-off in New York on Monday evening, the rapper reportedly got into a heated confrontation with another passenger for putting her belongings in his first-class luggage space.
According to The Daily Mail, Busta boarded a British Airways flight at JFK Airport just before the doors closed carrying five bags. He discovered that his overhead bin was already occupied before demanding: “Who’s got all their stuff in my locker?”
According to witnesses, he became “agitated, aggressive, and rude” as he hurled insults at a British woman in her late 20s, who began crying after he shouted at her.
“He was ranting and raving, getting really angry and demanding to know why she had used his locker,” said one witness. “He told her to move her stuff immediately.”
Her husband eventually intervened and told him to stop being rude to his wife, who offered to move her luggage from the bin. “The husband was trying to diffuse the situation, to which Busta replied, ‘Let’s go homeboy.’”
As the argument escalated, other passengers got involved and another called British Airways staff to intervene. Passengers were given the option to exit the plane and catch a later flight.
When the plane arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport on Tuesday morning, Busta was met by police officers at the request of a passenger, but was not arrested.
“Officers at Heathrow were requested by the airline of an inbound plane to Heathrow Airport from the US to attend following an alleged verbal altercation involving several passengers,” said a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police. “They boarded the plane once it had landed … and spoke to the parties involved. There were no reported injuries, and no offenses disclosed.”
British Airways also confirmed to Page Six that an incident occurred on board: “Our cabin crew and Captain reassured all the customers involved. All those in the cabin were given the option of moving away, and the flight did not depart until everyone confirmed that they were happy to continue.”
Busta performed on the Greek island of Mykonos on Tuesday and is set to perform at Romania’s UNTOLD Festival on Friday.
Rick Ross is currently on a press run promoting his highly-anticipated project, Port of Miami 2.
His most recent stop was at Big Boy’s Neighborhood and he was asked to explain his relationship to Kodak Black, considering they have a collaboration together. More specifically, Ross was asked if he advised the young rapper about his disrespectful comments towards his late friend’s girlfriend, Lauren London.
It may surprise you, but Rozay gave him the pass because he “respects the streets.”
“I got some homies that’s close to Kodak they sent the energy that of course homie didn’t mean no true disrespect,” said Ross, detailing the fact that he never actually had a conversation with the Project Baby about the shade. He then went on to blame drugs for Kodak’s erratic behavior, saying that his lean usage likely prompted the comment. “You know, me knowing Kodak, I know that Tussionex mixing with that lean will have you say some things. You may hear it a few days later and just realize what it was. But me knowing Kodak, I know he respects the streets. I know he wouldn’t disrespect Nipsey Hussle,” he said.

While viewership for the NFL might’ve come down a notch the past few years, gamers have continued to support EA’s yearly installment of Madden and now that the video game franchise is a few weeks away from releasing it’s latest installment Madden 20, Nike is taking the opportunity to congratulate the few players who have a 99 OVE rating in the game.
Re-imagining some classic Nike silhouettes with gold and white colorways, Nike has blessed the likes of Bobby Wagner, Aaron Donald, Khalil Mack, and with Nike 99 Club cleats which are designed “to each superstar’s unique style and skillset.” While Wagner probably got the grail of the 99 Club cleats with a golden pair of Air Jordan 1 cleats, Aaron DonaldandKhalil Mack didn’t get scraps either as they both received white and gold-lined custom versions of the Nike Force Savage Elite.
While we doubt the players will be rocking these 1 of 1 pair of cleats on the field anytime soon, it’s definitely a nice item to add to their trophy cases.
Check out pics of the kicks below and see what’s possible if you’re nice enough to get a 99 OVR rating in a Madden game.

Drake and LeBron are once again working together in an effort to drive culture forward. The 6 God will be helping the NBA great promote his digital initiative in Canada.
As spotted on The Hollywood Reporter King James is getting to the bag with the assistance of long time friend Drake. The deal finds Drizzy becoming a part owner and ambassador of Uninterrupted Canada. Originally launched in 2015 Uninterrupted is an athlete empowerment media brand that affords players the opportunity to curate original content and provide it directly to their fans sans a intermediary.
The “Money In The Grave” rapper detailed his enthusiasm in a formal statement. “Uninterrupted has been an incredible platform for athletes to tell their stories and connect with fans. I’m honored to partner with LeBron to bring Uninterrupted to Canada, a country that continuously supports innovation and creativity,” the rap star said in a statement. His Canada operations will be ran by CEO Scott Moore and Chief Content Officer Vinay Virman.
“When we started Uninterrupted, it was to give athletes a platform where we could share our stories and connect with our fans in a way we never had before,” James said in the press release. “It’s exciting to see that idea now leading a whole new era of athletes around the world feeling empowered to do more and be more.”
This is not the first time Drake and LeBron have collaborated on business. The two connected in 2017 to produce the The Carter Effect, a documentary on basketball phenom Vince Carter.
Roger Morton and his pregnant fiancé Porsha Shields were pulled over in Mississippi earlier in the month for speeding when two white officers escalated the situation, with one drawing his weapon while another grabbed Morton by the neck. The video of the exchange has since gone viral after it was posted publicly on Facebook this week with Morton and Shields demanding answers.
Porsha Shields shared the clip of the July 12 incident on Facebook, and then told friends on Tuesday, “I AM NOT ok and I haven’t been for weeks now.”
The 4 1/2-minute video showed her friend Robert Morton, 34, standing behind his car, on the side of the road in Clay County, chatting with a state trooper.
The trooper can be heard telling Morton he was under arrest for going 101 mph in a 65 mph zone. Morton refuses orders to put his hands behind his back to be handcuffed.
“Why am I getting arrested?” Morton repeatedly asks.
A second trooper then pulls up and immediately put his hands on Morton’s throat. The two troopers then wrestle him to the ground.
“Oh my goodness!” Shields screams. “You ain’t got to do all that! Sir, you ain’t got to all of that!”
Morton was cited for several charges, including going 20 miles over the speed limit, not wearing a seat belt and resisting arrest among other charges. In the video, the police officers seemingly pushed the aggression angle although in fairness Morton appeared to not be initially complaint.
Sabrina Claudio is dangerously in love on her new single “Holding the Gun.”
On the smoky slow jam, the R&B songstress celebrates a love that has no limits. “My love for you is infinite / I’d ride and die and live in it,” she sings. “And if my life depends on it / I’d use my last breath to tell you this.”
In the cinematic companion video, Claudio and her man are on the run. The wanted couple drives through the desert in a vintage red convertible on their Bonnie & Clyde-inspired journey.
“‘Holding the Gun’ symbolizes loyalty and an everlasting type of love,” explains Sabrina. “I wanted to make sure that showing violence was not a factor within the visual as violence, conceptually, isn’t what the song is about. The blood and insinuation of crime represents the lengths one would go when so deeply in love.”
“Holding the Gun” marks the first single from Sabrina’s new project, due later this year. The track follows her recent collaborations with Wale (“All My Love”) and BURNS and A$AP Rocky (“Energy”).
This fall, Sabrina will embark on her “Truth Is Tour.” The North American trek kicks off Sept. 21 in Los Angeles and travels across U.S. and Canada through early November.
