Travis Scott Reportedly Spoke to Colin Kaepernick Ahead of Super Bowl Gig, Kap’s Camp Says That’s a Lie

News that Travis Scott was joining Maroon 5 during the Super Bowl halftime performance in December, but it was officially announced three weeks later. That declaration just came after Scott reported that he and the NFL would give $500,000 to the non-profit social-justice association Dream Corps. The move was clearly made to show that he is still an ally and due to a great extent to the league’s treatment of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.

Scott and Kaepernick reportedly had at least one phone discussion before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety. A source near Scott said that while the two did not really agree, they understood and respected each other’s stance manner and he felt that the cash going toward Dream Corps, joined with the stage given by the Super Bowl, will benefit a few. The source additionally said that Scott would not confirm his performance until the point when the donation was secured.

A rep from the Know Your Rights camp completely denied Scott’s claims. “I use my personal ig for my personal opinion. I would always take a positive platform to share the good work of our Know Your Rights camp where we are impacting thousands of lives rather than to add on to a conversation such as the one above that offers no value,” said Patricia Robinson.

After the three entertainers were confirmed, an appeal by Change.org requesting that Maroon 5 canceled his performance, which had gathered almost 85,000 signatures, was updated to ask them all to take a knee during their performance. “It appears these artists aren’t backing out at this point. So now what?,” the petition reads. “There’s one way they can still redeem their reputation with their fans. Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi: take a knee during your set.”

Cardi B Wows With Her Lavishly Luxe “Money” Music Video

After already making it to the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, despite being leaked just a few days prior of its official release, Cardi B’s new single “Money” now has a music video that’s a visual treat from beginning to end. And yes, our girl Belcalis is baring all!



The video, directed by Jora Frantzis, for the latest single that will appear on the upcoming deluxe edition of her chart-topping debut album Invasion of Privacy proves that Cardi is truly a queen in every sense of the word, from the opulent gold-laced wardrobe design to the overall tribute to her unashamed days as a New York City-based stripper. As of now, “Money” is sitting comfortably at No. 29 on the charts, but we’re sure it’ll rise now that we have this eye-grabbing music video to gaze at and stream to the top of the charts. We even think Kulture makes her directorial debut in a few scenes as well!

Watch the music video for Cardi B’s “Money” music video above, and expect the Invasion of Privacy deluxe edition to drop on January 25.

[WATCH] Offset Crashes Cardi B’s Set At Rolling Loud To Apologize

When saying sorry goes wrong…

Hoping that a large, public apology would win back the heart of his estranged wife Cardi B, MigosOffset showed up unexpectedly on stage to pour his heart out, but it didn’t work

Offset popped up at the Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles with a large “TAKE ME BACK CARDI” before the “Bodak Yellow” star began her set, but if you watch the footage, she wasn’t having it.

Last week, Cardi publicly announced that the Hip Hop couple split and it was publicly known that it was due to Offset’s infidelity.

Just go harder, Offset. Just go harder.

Thousands Petition for Maroon 5 to Cancel Super Bowl Halftime Performance

Thousands of people are compelling Maroon 5 to drop out of the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

About a month ago, it was reported that Rihanna declined to perform for the league’s biggest game in support of Colin Kaepernick, the previous 49ers QB who’s in a progressing collusion case with the NFL.

The 31-year-old player filed a grievance against the association in 2017, guaranteeing he was boycotted for his peaceful protest against police brutality. From that point forward, numerous fans, big names, and activists have made a move against the NFL for their treatment of Kaepernick. One of these people is Vic Oyedeji, the man behind the Change.org request for Maroon 5 to drop out of the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

“Maroon 5 has made music over the years featuring artists from all genres, including Rihanna, Cardi B and Kendrick Lamar—all of whom have publicly supported Kaepernick in his decision to protest the violent racism sweeping the United States. Maroon 5 must do the same,” the petition reads. “The band has a chance to stand on the right side of history […] Rihanna, JAY-Z, Amy Schumer, and others have refused to work with the NFL. Maroon 5: Americans look to artists and celebrities as leaders, and you have huge opportunity to use your influence to take a stand.”

Australia Artist ChillinIt’s Independent Debut Album Goes #1

Far from an overnight success that he may appear to the casual fan, ChillinIt has been patiently developing and honing his craft for many years into one of the most exciting rappers to emerge out of Australia.

With an impressive independent 1.5 million-plus streams with no playlist help or distribution deal in the first week alone, the proof is in the numbers for the versatile wordsmith with the album charting at #1. Along with contemporaries Wombat, Nerve, Talakai, Shadow, Huskii, Lil Sknow, Mitchos Da Menace, Triple One, TRYL and Skrub, ChillinIt has led the charge for the new generation of skilled emcees to emerge from down under – aided by the excellent work that the affiliated Body Bag Media platform has been able to develop. Building on the style of the independent foundation created by the likes of Kerser, Fraksha, Fortay, and Alex Jones before him, ChillinIt has certainly emerged in the last year or two with a legion of fans and a strong potential to take his refreshing sound truly global. His music has already organically linked him to the UK, scoring a spot on JDZ Media and a collaboration with English grime emcee Kamakaze. The charismatic ChillinIt oozes star factor and has cultivated a family of fans known as the #420Fam. It is easy to see why he has developed such a rabid following in the recent years, with skills and authenticity on the microphone only matched by his energetic live shows that have many saying are some of the best in the country. There’s no rapping off phones, there’s no stumbling and fumbling his way through live shows just near complete hungry, raw, professionalism. Amassing tens of millions streams/views in the last year or so alone, ChillinIt definitely has the potential to be one of the first rappers from Australia to truly break through to the contemporary American market and has already sparked significant major record label interest. The hungry rapper is keen to showcase his many different styles with lyrical content to match almost any mood. If reaction videos were a gauge of his potential overseas, he may eventually prove to be as fire globally as he is at home. With a strong, consistent work ethic already in the young talented artist, it will be an interesting few coming months to see how ChillinIt is able to negotiate his increasingly new levels of success which only seems to develop by the hour. A truly talented rapper at the core, Australia is proud that such an artist is leading the charge and expect him to level up again soon. Expect to see him on further major Australasian tour support and festival slots by his own accord soon – before taking the world by storm.

Did Nicki Minaj Send Shots to Drake in Tyga’s New Song, ‘Dip’?

Following the success of his most recent singles, “Taste” and “Swish,” Tyga is continuing the winning streak of his successful comeback with his new Nicki Minaj-assisted single, “Dip.”

The Queen songstress definitely added sparkle to the record. Aside from addressing her recent physical altercation with Cardi B during New York Fashion Week, she may have sent shots to Drake.

“All these niggas want me to love ’em like I’m Kiki / Got ’em in they feelings since they seen me in FEFE (Ooh),” she spit towards the end of the track.

Coincidentally, the last time Drake and Nicki were spotted together was after her Tekashi 6ix9ine collaboration, “FEFE” was released. In the clip that Nicki posted to Instagram, you can hear Drake ask her “What’s your song called again, Fefe?”

Tekashi wanted all the smoke with Drizzy over the Summer. The “GUMMO” rapper tried to boast superiority over the 6 God by noting that he has an unbroken Billboard streak, and being a “real gangsta” in comparison to Drake who lost his rap feud to Pusha T.

Oddly, Drizzy didn’t promote Nicki Minaj’s latest album, Queen, but he did show love to Travis Scott’s project who also felt Nicki’s wrath over the Summer.

Although the “Barbie Dreams” emcee wished Drizzy a happy birthday last week, that bar sounded like a shot.

We’re not saying that there’s trouble in paradise or that her new bond with Tekashi is the reason, we’re just reporting our observations.

Watch 18-Year-Old Mac Miller Freestyle in his First Interview

A rare freestyle in what is allegedly Mac Miller’s first interview recently surfaced the web. Miller appears to be in High School and has no tattoos.

The unreleased freestyle video was taken by Masked Gorilla in 2010, when Miller was 18 years of age. In the YouTube video depiction, the production’s organizer Roger Gengo shared some insight about the day the video was recorded:

Here’s a video of Mac Miller freestyling in 2010 after I interviewed him for Masked Gorilla. He was still in highschool. So was I. It was before he released K.I.D.S. Before he had any tattoos. It was his first interview. It was mine too. He was in New York City for a few days. Before he left to fly home I met him at his hotel near the airport. I was incredibly nervous driving there. So nervous that, even though his manager Quinten instructed me to come up to the room when I arrived, I waited in the lobby for him to tell me again. Eventually Q came down. I asked Q why they were in NYC. Someone flew them out, but their parents didn’t know the trip was paid for, so they gave them travel money. They were excited about that. We were, literally, all just kids pretending that we knew what we were doing. I walked into the hotel room and greeted Mac. He was very energetic. I don’t think either of us could believe that the other wanted to do the interview. We filmed the interview. It felt like the greatest thing I had ever done in my life. Then we all piled in my mom’s car to get food. We did some other things, too, then I dropped him back off at the hotel.

Mac Miller passed away on Sept. 7, of an overdose, when he was 26. The terrible news landed about a month after he released his fifth studio album, Swimming, in which he talked about his fight with substance abuse and self esteem.

His Self Care Tour, in help of the collection, was set to commence on Oct. 27. The tribute show Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life will be livestreamed at Los Angeles’ Greek Theater on Oct. 31 at 6:30 p.m. PT/9:30 p.m. ET.

The occasion will profit the Mac Miller Circles Fund, which plans to help youngsters in underserved communities by giving them access to programming and extra assets fixated on inventiveness and network building. Travis Scott, SZA, John Mayer, Action Bronson, Chance the Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, Thundercat, and Vince Staples are among those on the lineup for the show.
