Grammy-winning rapper Lil Nas X might have just dropped his craziest music video to date. The hip-hop superstar has come through with his new “Industry Baby” and the visual lives up to all the hype with help from hitmakers Jack Harlow and Kanye West. Lil Nas X’s ‘Industry Baby’ Is Pure Must-See Craziness X goes […]
After teasing the track earlier in the week, Lil Nas X drops his new single “Industry Baby” featuring Jack Harlow.
The triumphant track, co-produced by Take A Daytrip and Kanye West, finds the 22-year-old rapper addressing his critics who labeled him a one-hit wonder. “And this one is for the champions / I ain’t lost since I began / Funny how you said it was the end / Then I went did it again,” raps Nas, who has two No. 1 hits on the Hot 100.
The openly gay rapper also addresses his sexuality: “I don’t f**k bitches, I’m queer / But these ni**as bitches like Madea.”
Alongside the song, he has debuted an epic video, which takes place after he is sentenced to five years in Montero State Prison for his Nike Satan shoes lawsuit. But Nas makes the most of it while he plots his escape, passing his time by polishing his Grammys and working out. He and his fellow inmates dance naked in the shower in one provocative scene, while Jack Harlow gets electrocuted by Nas.
“I already knew this song was going to be very much a rap heavy song,” Nas told Apple Music. “And I felt like I knew who’s going to listen to this. So let me make sure I’m doubling down because a lot of people have been saying, ‘Oh, well I like his music, but he’s sus sometimes.’ It was like, ‘No,’ like this is literally… This is me. This is me moving forward. That wasn’t a moment. I’m not really trying to make sure any audience that’s listening to my music is comfortable. I am going to do me.”
“Industry Baby” follows the chart-topping hit “MONTERO (Call Me by Your Name)” and “Sun Goes Down” from Nas’ upcoming debut album Montero, due later this summer.
The Throne is back? Music mogul JAY-Z breathes new hope into a much-needed Watch The Throne 2 album courtesy of his presence on longtime friend and protégé Kanye West‘s Donda album. JAY-Z Comes To Kanye West’s Rescue During Ye’s Donda album listening party, West shocked attendees at Atlanta, Georgia’s Mercedes Benz Stadium with some unexpected […]
Kanye West premiered his 10th studio album DONDA at a listening event at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Thursday night. Following collaborations with Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Pusha T, Travis Scott, Roddy Ricch, and more, Ye played one last song that had the stadium shook.
JAY-Z’s voice echoed through the speakers for the final track. “Donda, I’m wit your baby when I touch back road,” he raps. “Told him stop all that red cap, we goin’ home / Cannot be with all of these sins casting stones / This might be the return of The Throne / Hova and Yeezy like Moses and Jesus.”
Elsewhere on DONDA, Lil Durk referenced Kanye and JAY-Z’s relationship on his verse: “Ye and JAY still brothers / They both billionaires.”
The song marks Ye and JAY’s first collaboration since Drake’s “Pop Style” in 2016. The longtime friends and collaborators have had an estranged relationship for years, but briefly reunited at Diddy’s 50th birthday in December 2019. Kanye admitted that he felt “hurt” when JAY and Beyoncé didn’t show up to his and Kim Kardashian’s wedding in 2014 and called out the superstar couple on stage during his “Saint Pablo Tour” in 2016.
The new song has reignited talks of a long-awaited sequel to JAY-Z and Kanye’s 2011 collaborative album Watch the Throne.
Just hours before his 10th studio album drops, Kanye West will host a global listening event at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. While tickets are sold out, fans across the world can tune in to the livestream starting at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on Apple Music and watch the premiere in real time.
“The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again,” tweeted web personality Justin Laboy, who got an early listen. “The man changed the sound of music on this project.”
A day before Rolling Loud Miami kicks off, one of the stages has collapsed.
According to a tweet from the festival, a screen that was going to be used for this weekend’s performances fell down. Video footage from local news shows the stage folded in on itself as crew members asses the damage. It’s unclear what caused the collapse.
Thankfully, there were no injuries and concert organizers assured fans that the stage will be fixed by the time the festival opens tomorrow.
“In case you see it on the news, a screen fell down at one of our stages,” read a tweet from the Rolling Loud account. “Nobody was hurt and it will be fixed before doors open tomorrow. The show goes on!”

The “Fancy” rapper is calling out a fan of her ex-boyfriend Playboi Carti who criticized her son Onyx’s clothing. Taking to her Instagram Story, Iggy shared a photo of the 1-year-old in a green dinosaur costume.
But Onyx’s mom was not here for anyone disrespecting her baby. “Imagine being so miserable that you bully a one year old child for picking his own outfit,” she shot back. “Y’all so corny and bored and it’s really a damn shame.”
She also warned them not to come for her kid again or else they may face repercussions. “My child is not a sub-brand for his fathers fans to obsess over or clown on because the reality is that y’all don’t like his mom so you think it’s cute to be rude about a baby and what funny stuff he wears,” she added. “Know that I will smack you in person, and so will his dad.”
When someone else told her “it’s not that deep,” she replied, “Come say that shit in real life and find out that it is.”
Added Iggy, “I don’t play about my baby. At ALLLLLLL.”
Iggy and Carti split in late 2019, months before welcoming their son Onyx in June 2020.
