While the coronavirus pandemic is impacting the entire world, the world of sports and entertainment has been severely impacted, with two Houston Hip Hop artists becoming advocates for prevention and protection from the virus. Now, Scarface has come forth with some shocking news about the actor best known as “Big Worm.”
While giving an update about his own health during an Instagram Live with Ludacris, Scarface revealed that actor Faizon Love has also contracted COVID-19, but added that Love’s level of improvement is similar to that of his own.
Love, who is best known for his role as “Big Worm” in Ice Cube’s 1995 silver screen smash Friday, has yet to confirm to the public whether or not he has tested positive for the virus.
As artists see their shows getting canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, they’re trying to find creative ways to entertain their fans while social distancing.
Swae Lee is taking the step to perform via Instagram live Friday night. The 1/2 of Rae Sremmurd posted on Instagram on Thursday to let his more than 8 million followers know he’ll be going live at 8 p.m. for a free show.
Swae Lee was hitting the road with Post Malone for the Runaway Tour, but due to the viral outbreak, the tour dates were postponed.
It’ll be interesting to see how much production will go into this IG live concert and also to see if this becomes a trend throughout the industry as people across the globe continue to self-quarantine.
It was like being at the Palladium! The Red Zone! The Garage! The Warehouse! Plastics! The Tunnel!!!
And it was all generated from the comfort of your home, and in the convenient locale of your telephone. D-Nice did what few DJs ever have done, but he opened his home for that old school party jam at 6 pm EST and rocked out into well into the night with his “Homeschoolin’: Social Distancing Dance Party.” He plans to continue doing to shake off the doldrums that has had so many locked up in their homes with nothing to do.
But he saved the day.
Who is D-Nice? Well, Derrick “D-Nice” Jones originally was a part of one of Hip-Hop’s most legendary crews, Boogie Down Productions, as one of their principal DJs. One of the best personalities ever, he has checked several meaningful boxes throughout the culture: DJ, Emcee, Producer, Photographer, and Influencer.
Now that you know who he is… what does he do?
D-Nice gets busy. And for the last two days, he has been doing, doing, doing it until his Instalive fam was satisfied.
For hours he rocked jams from every era that has touched the Hip-Hop enthusiast and he did it live from his living room in his sport out in Los Angeles. He did the one thing that so many believe could never be done: He connected technology with legacy.
Legend after legend has joined the party! He has had visits from Unsigned Hype Alum Common, Mary J. Blige, Russell “Uncle Rush” Simmons, Black Thought, Damien Hall, Naomi Campbell, Quest Love, Joe Budden, Big Daddy Kane, Fat Joe, John Legend, Spice Adams and soooo many more!
He will be back at it tomorrow, Friday (and maybe every day ever after) until we get through this… one turntable at a time! Rock with him on his Instagram @dnice at 6 pm EST (3 PST) and see exactly what a real party supposed to feel like.
Almost a month after announcing that she was “done with fame,” Bhad Bhabie has now announced that she will be taking a break from social media “due to her mental health.”
“I hate to say it but y’all won! Congrats mission complete! Y’all made the lil 16 year old completely loose it! Social media has not only made me who I am but also every reason I can’t sleep at night. Imagine being called a racist white cunt every second of they day,” she stated in a post on Instagram.
In December the rapper received a lot of backlash when she posted a video of herself rocking box braids to her Instagram. She was blamed for cultural appropriation for wearing the hairdo, which led to her going on a furious Instagram rant.
“To all the black females that are saying my hair ain’t meant for box Braids guess the f*ck what y’all hair ain’t meant to be straight but y’all glue whole wigs on to your heads and sew Brazilian/Indian/Peruvian hair which is anything like your natural hair texture at all and I don’t say a god damn thing neither do the other cultures that you get the hair from.”
The Instagram controversy didn’t stop there, at the top of the year Bhad Bhabie posted a video and fans noticed something that seemed to appear different on the 16-year-old. When fans accused her of having lip injections she simply responded by saying, “I think a lot of yall forget I’m getting older so I’m gonna start looking different…stop making up sh*t I don’t have any surgeries… leave me tf alone.”
Although fans were on her side, trying to convince her that she didn’t have to pay attention to the negative comments so much, it seems as though Bhad Bhadie just has had enough. “When I do come back I will be Turing all my comments off,” she mentioned.
There have been no further details on when the 16-year-old plans to return to her social media, but we hope her mental health gets in the best state during her break from social media.
Adrien Boner is once again doing the most. This time the pedophile eyebrow has been raised.
As spotted on Page Six the boxer was caught in a precarious situation when it was found out that he had slid into the wrong woman’s girl’s direct messages. On Friday, January 3 he apparently had reached out to Bhad Bhabie with a personal message. Considering their wide age difference the viral star turned struggle rapper put him on blast for creeping.
Danielle Bregoli shared a screenshot of her inbox where he allegedly said “text me crazy girl.” She proceeded to put him on blast by including Akon’s classic “Locked Up” in her post alluding to the possible legal ramifications from his desert thirst.
Naturally, the incident caught fire on social media forcing AB to formally comment on the matter. In a exclusive interview with The Shade Room the Cincinnati native said “Nobody want to date a kid but I fault Instagram for not having people’s age on they profile,” Broner said. “I thought she was grown the way she out here moving…” but he said it’s clearly not time to “catch her outside.”
Broner’s former love Arie Nicole chimed in on Instagram “Sh*t I done told him to find a step mama not a step child.”
If taking the loss last year Manny Pacquiao wasn’t a big enough L for boxing favorite Adrian Broner, then trying to slide in a famous 16 year old’s DM definitely will be.
Internet sensation Bhad Barbie put the boxing big mouth on the public hot seat after he sent her a provocative DM via Instagram in response to the “Cash Me Outside” teen’s pic in a croptop.
Barbie attached the screenshot above to a clip of Akon’s “Locked Up” hit, insinuating that the former boxing champ might end up behind bars for his IG antics.
With Barbie, whose real name is Danielle Bregoli, being only 16 and Broner being a 30 year old boxer, this presents an ugly accusation and even uglier perception of Adrian Broner and his intent with a girl half his age.
Dipset lieutenant Juelz Santana began his federal prison sentence earlier this year and the 37-year-old emcee looks like he’s holding up in his flick from behind bars posted on his IG.
Santana, whose real name is LaRon James, was sentenced to 27 months in prison in a plea deal for charges stemming from him trying to bring a loaded gun and drugs on an airplane at the Newark International Airport. The Love And Hip Hop: New York regular is being held in Petersburg Medium FCI in Virginia until his tentative 2021 release.
Alicia Keys took fans to church after an incident at a nail salon with her son made her questioning how society applies labels.
On Sunday (Nov. 10) Alicia Keys took to her Instagram page to discuss labels when it comes to masculine and feminine energies after her four-year old son Genesis wanted to paint his nails with a rainbow nail polish. During the relaxing visit, Genesis shared that he wanted to have a myriad of colors on his nails, although the “Diary”singer was excited for her son’s bold choice, the excitement turned to sadness after her son decided he no longer wanted to wear the polish out of fear of being judged.
“The other day I went to the nail salon with Genesis. He’s in the chair and he’s like I want rainbow. So he tells the lady that he wants rainbow colors on his nails,” Keys shared. “And she brings all of these colors and she paints each nail a different color and after he painted his nails he looked at me and says ‘mommy, I don’t want this on my nails.’ I said why, you were so sure you were good and he goes ‘people are not gonna like it.’”
Alicia Keys then went onto explain how the incident made her examine all the ways people judge others, which led her to post her thoughts on Instagram in protest of these judgements and labels.
“It got me thinking how completely judged we are all the time,” Keys continued. “The way I see it is there is masculine and feminine energies inside us all. And that’s, period. That’s just how it is. And it gets concerning to me that we can’t explore these different sides of ourselves, these different energies that are within us.”
There have been several conspiracy theories ever since our Instagram feeds have been 50 Cent-less. But he took the time out on Twitter to set the record straight.
The mogul has been getting dragged from Twitter to Instagram for reposting a meme that made fun of Naturi Naughton’s hairline. Although Fif be cutting on everyone, people are slamming him because he apologized for making the joke already on Instagram because she admitted that she was publicly offended.
Fifty retweeted a tweet that had an article that claimed he got banned for trolling the Power actress and dubbed it as “fake news.” He claims he deactivated his own account. “LOL Im cool with all these false report, if you don’t know why something happens you can’t just make some shit up,” 50 Cent wrote. “smh I turned my own IG page off SUCKERS.”
There’s is nothing 50 Cent loves more than trolling every person he can on Instagram. But the hip hop star is having to find a new hobby these days because Instagram has suspended his account It was first noticed on Thursday afternoon that the Power producer’s account was no longer available on the platform. And it’s still a no-show nearly 24 hours later. (Metro UK)
