What happens when Juice WRLD and Future join forces? You’re about to find out.
The rappers are teaming up for a joint project called WRLD on Drugs, which they teased on social media. Both posted what appears to be a tentative tracklisting featuring 17 tracks with titles like “Jet Lag,” “Astronauts,” “Red Bentley,” and “Transformer.”
“Pluto x Juice #WRLDONDRUGS,” Juice WRLD captioned the photo.
On Monday, they dropped the first release from the project, “Fine China.” They were also recently spotted shooting a futuristic video in the desert while wearing metallic outfits and driving a DeLorean.
Their joint mixtape could drop as soon as this week, according to Hndrxx. “Me & @JuiceWorlddd in the studio rite now…we jus did enough heat to drop a tape this week,” he tweeted on Wednesday (Oct. 17).
He also asked fans to help them design the cover artwork so they could “put it out ASAP.”

Justice is rare when it comes to Black people and the law, but a judge in Florida put one in the win column for the brothers after tossing a pair of cops in the slammer. The officers framed a Black teenaged boy in the town of Biscayne by pinning a string of burglaries on him.
By helping the feds make a case against a corrupt ex-Biscayne Park police chief, two convicted former officers were hoping to avoid prison time for their roles in framing a black teenager with a string of burglaries.
Instead, Charlie Dayoub and Raul Fernandez were handcuffed and led by U.S. Marshals into custody on Tuesday after U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore sentenced them to the maximum: one year in prison for the false arrests.
As family members cried in disbelief, Moore chastised federal prosecutors for agreeing to recommend eight months of home confinement for Dayoub and one year of probation for Fernandez based on their grand jury testimony and other assistance in helping target former Chief Raimundo Atesiano, who had pressured officers in the mostly white suburban town to pin property crimes on people of color. He pleaded guilty last month.
Judge Moore said that giving the officers a lighter sentence would be akin to a “slap on the wrist” and pushed back at the prosecution’s suggestion of granting leniency after the 16-year-old boy was pegged for the break-ins in 2013 under the direction of police leadership.
In a recent interview Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky surprised the good folks at Esquire when he admitted to getting freaky as a young teen. Pretty Flacko told the publication, he had his first orgy at 13 years old. We repeat: first.
“My first orgy was when I was in seventh grade,” he explained. “Thirteen years old. Yeah, I was at Booker T. Washington in New York City. My dad had went to jail for drugs, so my mom moved us to a homeless shelter on 104th and Broadway. Our school was like three blocks away, and they used to let us out for lunch, for 45 minutes.”
It seems 45 minutes was more than enough time for the fashion god to stumble upon his first group sex situation. “The first time was in this apartment building. We took the elevator to the roof, and everybody put their coats on the ground. There were like five girls and 10 guys, and we all just took turns,” he confessed.
In less scandalous parts of the interview, he also talked about not f*cking up his money, fashion, and having a $100,000 bed. Click here to get into their chat.
It went up last night at the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards, as some of the most prominent names in Hip-Hop hit the stage to do their thing.
Cardi B shut the internet down with a performance full of attitude and booty, T.I. performed “Wraith” with Yo Gotti, A$AP Rocky and YG hit the stage together, and more. If you weren’t able to tune in, click into the gallery to see how it all went down.
G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha-T might have to send bottles of champagne to Noah “40” Shebib. The hip-hop veteran has credited Drake‘s longtime friend and producer for having a direct connection to his now-infamous “Story of Adidon” diss record.
“The information came from 40. It didn’t come from Kanye. At all. 40 is sleeping with a woman. He talks to her daily, five, six hours a day, provides opportunity for her. Ultimately speaks on how he’s disgruntled about certain things. Notoriety and things involving Drake and his career and so forth. With that also came the fact that Drake has a child. With that also came the trip that everybody took to go see the child and bring him gifts. All of this information.” (The Joe Budden Podcast)
“In rap, rappers feel like they have to engage – I feel like it was a lot of legitimate factors he left out the situation. Pusha-T just dropped an album. He dropped a diss record the next day and mentioned his wife. He could have not did a record and straight up punched Drake in the face when he seen him because that’s a violation. Once you bring somebody family [into the battle], you don’t know how Pusha-T, he just got married, you don’t know how his wife feel. You threw her in the battle and then you’re asking him to follow a guideline. That’s off the question. Then something else you’re asking him is to not follow tradition. Pusha-T is not a new rapper, he’s been around for a while. There’s no rules in this. He’s heard it all when he’s heard beef. He’s heard it all. And then Drake, you’re the biggest guy in the game, just chill. There’s nothing wrong with that. It shouldn’t have been a battle. I like Drake’s music, I think he’s a star. I put him up there with Kanye, Puff, he’s a star. But I think we’re beginning to forget a lot of rules in this culture with the stars and we start switching them around – I don’t got nothing against Drake but how does a guy say what’s the rules in a rap battle who had a ghostwriter before? That’s not fair, dog. You’re letting a dude who had a ghostwriter say what we can do in the dirt. Nah dog, you gotta stay up there. And you’re beautiful up there. But don’t come down here. You can’t change the rules.” (Hot 97)
Nothing is wrong with not engaging in warfare it’s actually the wiser thing to do . But never engage and expect rules . That’s with rap or the streets ..
A few days ago, Drake explained his motivation behind not releasing a career-ending diss song aimed at Kanye West and Pusha-T.
“I got home and I just listened back to it, and I was like, man, this is not something I ever wanna be remembered for,” he said. “This is not even a place that I necessarily want to go. And to all the people who enjoy that, I tip my hat to you. By the way, hell of a chess move. The song, I thought it was trash. But the chess move was genius. Back against the wall. I either go all the way filthy or I fall back and I have this sort of chink in my armor for the rest of time to a rap purist. Which is fine, I can live with that. I would much rather live with that than the things that I was about to… the research I did, the things that I was gonna say, and the places that I was gonna go. Not only for him, but the other guy too.” (“The Shop”)
The Rap-A-Lot Records CEO tells us Drake was, in fact, ready to respond to Pusha’s “The Story of Adidon” before J Prince stepped in and told him to stand down. According to Prince, what Drake had “cocked and loaded” would’ve “ended” Kanye, and caused a lot of pain. He insists they’re not in the business of destroying families … which is why he told Drizzy to stand down. (TMZ)
Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. is ready to see UFC superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov face-to-face in the ring. The sports mogul has announced his intention to put the gloves on and face-off against the MMA fighter.
In a new interview, Mayweather Jr. said he’s down to take on Khabib a year after defeating UFC fighter Conor McGregor in a boxing match.
“What I exactly said is CBS, Showtime, MGM Grand, get that check book ready because you already know I’m Floyd Money Mayweather. I’m in the check-cashing business. I’m about that money. We fighting. I mean, I’m my own boss. So I can’t say what’s going on on Khabib’s end but on my end, we can make it happen. Then I saw on IG and social media he put, basically he’ll fight but he doesn’t want to fight in Vegas. Of course we know Vegas is the fighting capitol and after the fight you have to conduct yourself as a professional. Not just inside the ring but outside the ring. You must conduct yourself as a professional and it was a big melee. I haven’t had a chance to see it but from what I heard it was a crazy melee [after UFC 229].
“My favorite was the official one we put out with Nicki and Quavo. But I liked all of them honestly. T-Pain killed it. I think Fab killed it. Music is personal preference – I think everyone killed it but to be fair I wasn’t expecting everyone to jump on it – Plies did one too that was really cool. So just to have people do it organically because they loved the song so much was really cool to me. I think Dave East did one too.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
As Page Six reports the 28-year-old was the guest on Van Lathan’s “Red Pill” Podcast most recent episode. Naturally. his blatant use of the N-Word throughout his music and social media in 2015 became a topic. When asked he pointed his fingers to a sorry mix of seeking acceptance and problems with cocaine.
“Number one, I was on a lot of drugs. I wanted to be, like, down, you know what I mean? I just felt like I wasn’t enough” he explained. Born Chester Hanks the former wannabe MC now recognizes he went about the wrong way with his previous musical aspirations. “Low-key, like subconsciously, looking back on it now I realize I was trolling,” he said. “I thought, like, crazy antics and just wilding the f—k out and doing some crazy s—t was going to like spark my career.”
While he did not directly offer a formal apology for his cultural appropriation he went on to admit that he played himself. “I did the ultimate lame thing,” he confessed. “I did the ultimate cornball thing. And that s—t wasn’t cool.”
Luckily Haze has left rapping behind him. He has since followed in his father’s footsteps and pursued acting, landing roles in Empire and Shameless. Footage of his struggle bars below.
