Lil Baby Go All Out To Honor Jayda Cheaves For Mother’s Day

Lil Baby never hesitates when it comes to showing appreciation to Jayda Cheaves.

On Sunday, May 9th millions across the country celebrated Mother’s Day. It is a day to show our appreciation to all of the women who have raised or are raising the future generation.

Despite Cheaves publicly calling an end to her relationship with Lil Baby back in February, the two continue to co-parent their son, Loyal. The superstar rapper certainly showed up and showed out for his son’s mother on Sunday. Jayda took to her IG story to showcase the Mother’s Day gifts that he copped for her.

The decorated room was filled with white floral designs as well as candles. He even topped it off with a number of Birkin Bags to add to her collection, as well as a new car.

Jayda celebrated the rest of the day with a family brunch.

Check it out the gifts she receives from Lil Baby below.

Charlamagne Tha God Receives Honorary Doctorate from S.C. State

Charlamagne Tha God Suggests That Drake's Hip Hop Reign is Over: 'I Don't Know If He Has Another Gear'

Put some respect on his name and address him as Doctor Charlamagne Tha God.

The Breakfast Club radio host was chosen as the commencement speaker for this year’s graduating class of South Carolina State University. While Charlamagne, born, Lenard McKelvey, has always been vocal about his non-attendance of college, he is a testament to faith, work, and purpose. The New York Times Best-selling author’s topic of focus to the class of 2021 was doing what is “necessary.”

He spoke on the change the world endured over the past year and how it has altered what is necessary for our lives. He also touched on the importance of speaking up as Black people within corporate spaces. These choices can only make it easier and kick down the door for those coming after you. While doing so Uncle Charla added in the story about one of his inspirations, Denmark Vessey.

Charlamagne has numerous ties to the South Carolina HBCU. His mother and wife are both South Carolina State alumnae. Prior to his speech, he acknowledged the 360 moments and echoed the same sentiment in his IG caption.

“Couldn’t ask for a greater Mother’s Day weekend….,” he said in his caption.

“Giving the commencement speech at my mothers alma mater on Mothers Day Weekend while she’s alive to see it was surreal. Thank You God for engineering my life and Thank You @scstate1896 for the opportunity. It was an honor and a privilege!!!!”

Back in 2019, McKelvey also set up a scholarship fund at S.C. State for $250K. Congrats to the now Dr. Lenard “Charlamagne Tha God” McKelvey.

Check out his full speech below.

Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival Sold Out In Under One Hour

Screen Shot 2021 05 06 at 9.23.27 AM

Texas-born, GRAMMY Award-nominated, and multi-platinum hip-hop artist Travis Scott are excited to announce that his Astroworld Festival has fully sold out in under an hour with over 100,000 total guests scheduled to attend the weekend event this fall. The music festival is slated to return for a third year to NRG Park in Houston, Texas with an expanded two-day format on Friday, November 5, and Saturday, November 6.

Tickets for the music festival went on sale earlier today at 10:00 am CT but in less than 60 minutes, the entire weekend event was sold out without a music performance lineup attached. Every year since its inception, Scott’s festival has sold out in advance of the lineup reveal, with 2021 setting the record for the fastest sell-out yet.

This fall, Astroworld looks to once again become the largest artist-curated music festival in the world, as well as the largest music event in Scott’s hometown of Houston. Every detail of the Astroworld Festival is an extension of Scott’s personal creativity and unique vision, truly making Astroworld a festival like no other. 

Scott is confirmed as the festival’s headlining performer as he prepares for the forthcoming release of his highly-anticipated new album, Utopia. The full music lineup will be revealed at a later date closer to the festival. 

With a new creative theme, “Open Your Eyes To A Whole New Universe”, the critically-acclaimed rapper turned mainstream culture phenom will once again curate and produce a larger-than-life multi-stage music festival experience in his hometown of Houston, while also bringing back the beloved spirit and nostalgia of AstroWorld, the legendary and now-defunct amusement park that Scott visited countless times during his childhood. 

Most recently in November 2019, the festival played host to over 50,000 fans from across the globe for Scott’s special celebration of hip-hop, pop music, and Houston culture. As Scott himself solely curates and hand-selects the festival’s music lineup, past festival performances have featured some of today’s most sought-after music acts beyond just hip-hop and R&B including Post Malone, Rosalia, Pharrell Williams, DaBaby, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Playboi Carti, Megan Thee Stallion, among many others.

A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to the festival’s official charity partner, Cactus Jack Foundation.  Founded by Scott, the nonprofit organization looks to empower and enrich the lives of youth by providing access to education and creative resources to ensure long-term success. Please visit CactusJack.Foundation to learn more.

[WATCH] DJ Akademiks Claims Down Low Gay Rappers Are Sleeping with Music Executives

Screen Shot 2021 02 10 at 7.43.12 PM

On a recent post on Twitch, controversial internet personality DJ Akademiks made some startling allegations while discussing the T.I./Tiny assault and sex abuse scandal, accusing male music executives in “Hollyweird” of sleeping with down low, male rappers.

Ak states in the video below, “There’s a couple of executives that I’ve heard are f***king the male rappers, and they’re male too.” He goes on to insinuate the truth to the rumor of a “gay mafia” in the entertainment world, adding, “I don’t want to get randomly killed.” 

Last month, Inspectah Deck of the Wu-Tang Clan made similar allegations, stating that he saw some “weird shit” going on at private Hollywood parties to which he and the Clan were invited.

See the full statement by Akademiks below.

Young Thug Supports Lil Uzi Vert’s $24 Million Forehead Diamond Teardrop

Young Thug

Thugger is all for Lil Uzi Vert’s multi-million dollar investment.

Lil Uzi Vert sent the internet into a frenzy after revealing his new look. On Wednesday, (Feb. 3) the “XO Tour Life” rapper posted a video stunting with his $24 million dollars, multi-caret diamond on his forehead. The embedded diamond was made by popular jeweler Eliiot Eliante.

Of course, Uzi’s latest investment sparked a number of hilarious memes. The Tone of the most popular memes derived from Marvel’s latest Avengers movie. The Philly rapper’s forehead diamond mirrors the Infinity stones from Avengers. Fans even joked that Thanos is looking for Lil Uzi Vert as we speak. Tory Lanez took to his social media to join in on the fun by taping a diamond cross to his forehead.

While the jokes were plenty, the Eternal Atake rapper received support from Young Thug. Thugger took to his IG story to express the admiration of his “slime.”

“Slime rule the world, believe it,” said the YSL CEO. “Young ni**as out this motherf**ker spending $24 million on they heads. Ni**a put $24 M on the front of they head. Y’all hoes get in line.”

Not everyone was enthused as Young Thug about Uzi’s forehead diamond.

Prior to Uzi, Sauce Walka recently embedded a million-dollar diamond teardrop next to his eye. The Houston, TX rapper quickly roasted Uzi for stealing his sauce.

Uzi quickly responded, saying that Lil B was his inspiration.

Despite the backlash, he is confident with his decision.

Lil Uzi Vert faced some complications when he began to bleed from his forehead. He later tweeted that everything was fine a few moments after. What do you think of his diamond implant? Which rappers will be next in line to do so?

50 Cent Trolls Young Buck After Another Transgender Scandal

Screen Shot 2021 01 19 at 9.21.56 AM

Even though Young Buck has denied being involved with a transgender woman in any way, allegations from different transgender women continue to pop up and 50 Cent is there for all of the shits and giggles.

On a YouTube talk show, Unwine With Tasha K, the show’s host reveals the identity and some of the messages shared between another transgender woman and the former G-Unit member.

“There are actual messages, if you care, between Buck and [an alleged accuser] @crackbadazz with him asking, ‘Where you at?’ and he about to tear that a**hole up, ‘I’m about to come and put this d*** in yo a**,” the host said.

The host continued to question Young Buck’s version of the story, saying, “But you know, I knew Buck was full of s*** when he called me and said, ‘I didn’t even know it was a man.’ So you walked into a room high, pulled down your pants, and let anybody just suck your d*** without checking to see who it was? And then when she got the camera, he talking about, ‘I looked back, saw the camera, and got the f*** up out of there.’ You said you didn’t even know if it was a camera there. You didn’t even know that. Listen, too many trans women have came out to out his a**. At this point, this man is bisexual…I’ve been talking to @crackbadazz for years and [her] story has not changed at all.”

50’s take on the continuing rumors?

Drake Teases First Look At His Yacht

IMG drake

When it comes to Hip-Hop’s Cash Kings, it is no doubt that Drake rounds out the top earners on the list. In 2020, the OVO founder came in at No. 42 in the Forbes list of highest earning celebrities. According to Celebrity Net Worth, he came in at 7th with a net worth of $180 Million for the richest rappers list. To be in the top percentile of earners speaks to his consistency, dedication, and execution as Spotify’s most-streamed artist.

Drake recently took to his Instagram story where he previewed one of his wealthiest assets. In a post and delete, his followers caught a glimpse of his Yacht. According to the picture, the Titanic-like infrastructure resembled the hallway of a home. Instead, it was his home on the water. The caption under the photo read: “Yacht finishes all 2021.”

If his caption is any indication, it looks like we’ll be seeing more of Drizzy’s latest acquisition. In 2019 he stunned fans when he revealed his own personal private charter plane, “Air Drake,” that costed over $220 million according to CNN.

Drake Shares Words of Wisdom to Start the New Year

Drake Releases 'Certified Lover Boy' Nike Collab

It is a New Year, meaning there is new Drake coming soon. Toronto’s golden child has everyone on the edge of their seats as they await the arrival of his 6th studio album, Certified Lover Boy, at least almost everyone. While fans received a project and some surprise features from Drake in 2020, nothing compares to a full-length album.

The OVO CEO recently took to his Instagram story to share his first message of 2021. It was written from his iPhone notes. The basis of the post is grounded on the principles of “self-work.”

“Can’t love someone more than they love themselves
Can’t respect someone more than they respect themselves
And def can’t want more for someone than they want for themselves
That’s all self work

It is unclear whether the post was reaction to a specific occurrence, but we certainly appreciate the words of wisdom from Drizzy.

Dwyane Wade ‘Appreciated’ Mike Tyson Checking Boosie Over His Transphobic Comments About Daughter Zaya Wade

dw

Earlier this year, Boosie caught hell for transphobic comments he made about Dwyane Wade’s daughter Zaya. In October, Boosie sat down with Mike Tyson for the boxer’s podcast, Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson. Instead of berating Boosie about his comments, he instead tried to get to the bottom of why Boosie said what he did about Zaya Wade.

“I really commented on the Dwyane Wade situation because I got offended because it’s a child,” Boosie told Mike. “That’s really why I got offended.” Tyson gave Boosie the best advice he could and told him that he should have just been quiet.

Dwyane Wade sat down for an interview with Central Ave and said that he had spoken to Mike Tyson and appreciated how he handled the situation.

“He’s one of those people … he’s so smart, he’s so educated and knowledgeable about life and for him to drop that nugget on the world … to me, it was great to hear him say that,” he said. However, Wade wasn’t phased by Boosie’s comments. He said that he “understand(s) that everyone has their own path, their own journey toward accepting things.”

He added that “I’ve never came out and said anything to anybody that feels a certain way about me or someone else in my family, my loved ones — because they don’t know us, they don’t know our heart and they definitely don’t know Zaya.”
