Where’s The Lie?: DaBaby Says Social Media “Ain’t A Place For The Truth”

DaBaby hits the Z107.9 Summer Jam stage!

DaBaby was in his feels this morning (Jan. 7), and got some of his thoughts off, on Twitter. The rapper pontificated on the merits and negatives of social media.

“If social media wasn’t such a lucrative tool in the business I’m in I wouldn’t even be on it,” tweeted the “Suge” rapper. “Lost souls influenced by lost souls.”

He added, “I encourage people to have the courage to find themselves without the false sense of security they search for on the internet.”

Lately, DaBaby’s own career was knocked at least slightly off course thanks to issues with the law. The first, being detained and cited for marijuana possession seems like a case of being targets by the cops, or so he claims. The second, running the pockets of an alleged janky promoter that shorted him thousands of dollars, sounds more like an incident that could have and should have been easily avoided.

The latter caused DaBaby to spend a few days in jail thanks to a warrant in Texas and held him up on bailing out. Shortly after his release he teased new music, before waxing philosophical today.

Fans looking for him to explain further what happened had to settle for introspection, for now.

He continued, “I always preferred to say less because social media ain’t a place for the truth. But lately I been feeling like it’s my calling to say more. ion know how I wanna play it though, I respect my mind too much to allow myself to be indentifed as one of these internet mfs.”

Where is the lie? DaBaby closed shop by stressing that his reflection was not a sign of depression.

“The internet so lost they think if a n*gga say something with substance he sad. Bitch I’m GOOD. GOD just moved me to send out a message this morning. Don’t send pity where it isn’t needed. Just soak up the game for what it’s worth. Sh*t it may not be worth nothing at all.”

Fans Share Spotify Wrapped Year-End Lists, Pop Rap Category Has Some Confused

Mobile applications

One of the most innovative features of Spotify is its visually-rich #SpotifyWrapped, an annual tally of what fans listened to the most. This year, the music streaming service and audio content company listed out listeners’ artists of the decade as the 2010s closes out.

This year’s Spotify Wrapped, like previous versions, examines a user’s listening habits down to the small details like countries, new artists, discoveries, and also lists out which podcasts get the most burn.

As fans continue to share their Wrapped lists, some are confused over the category “Pop Rap,” although it should be assumed that it refers to popular Hip-Hop songs that hit the mainstream. And for those of you who listen to a little bit of everything, Spotify has designated the term “genre-fluid” for those users.

We’ve been looking at the chatter over Spotify Wrapped and some of the other reactions, and we’ve got them listed below. If you’re a Spotify user and want to use the feature as well, click here.

Twitter is undefeated when it comes to the memes and jokes, and the latest hot trend has unveiled more of that comedic brilliance. We’ve found the best “I’m Gonna Tell My Kids” memes that have cropped up over the last couple of days.

The concept of the meme is simple: a user posts an image or gif of a person and then adds the “I’m Gonna Tell My Kids” sentence that usually has some over the top connection. One of the early faves was a user posting an image of Harriet Tubman writing in the caption, “I’m Gonna Tell My Kids This Is Julia Roberts.”

Check out the best of the rest below.

50 Cent Claims he Deactivated his Own Instagram Account

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.”

Many people began speculating that because 50 Cent is a known bully online, he violated Instagram’s new code of conduct and was banned. But now he claims this was his doing.

What do you think his reasoning was?

50 Cent’s Instagram Has Been Deactivated

If you’re a daily Instagram user then you can look forward to seeing a post from 50 Cent. But it seems like his account has been disabled.

He’s nowhere in sight when you type his name in the search bar. This has been going on since Wednesday afternoon.

50 Cent's Instagram Has Been Deactivated

The mogul has taken his talents to Twitter without mentioning his missing IG account. But he did post a cryptic, hilarious message alluding that the platform snatched his account.

Twitter users in the mentions asked him about his Instagram, but he didn’t respond like he usually does on the Facebook-owned platform.

So you’ll have to get your daily dose of Fif on Twitter in the interim.

In other 50 Cent related news, he retweeted a panel that he’s participating in alongside Power creator, Courtney Kemp, and president and CEO of Starz, Jeffrey A. Hirsch, at SXSW.

The hit series will reach its finale by then so the conversation will definitely be lit.

Antonio Brown Bashes NFL On Twitter, Changes His Mind In A Day

Antonio Brown says hes done with the NFL again

Source: Miami Herald / Getty

Antonio Brown seems to be trapped in a glass case of emotion. In 24 hours the athlete has changed his stance on his former employers.

As spotted on Hot New Hip Hop on Thursday, November 7 the former wide receiver let the world know how he really feels about the National Football League. In a Tweet, that has now been since deleted, the Miami native claimed he has no love for the organization. “Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100 percent to see them treat me like this is unfairly!” he wrote. “Making money off my sweat and blood F*** the @nfl I’ll never play in that sh*t treat black people the worse! Clear my name and go f*** your self.”

He also took to his Instagram to further vent. “F*ck @nfl I’m going down another path no more making money off my blood and sweat! No more control of my name and body clear my name I am done with it ! So you fantasy f*cks can let it go.” This post has been since deleted.

While he seemed like he was going ten toes down on Roger Goodell and crew, he had a change of heart several hours later. “I just want to play and I’m very emotional about that. I’m determined to make my way back to the NFL asap”.

Shortly after being dropped by the New England Patriots Brown filed a grievance against the NFL in an effort to recoup the remaining 40 million dollars left on his contract. 2019 has been a tumultuous year to say the least for AB. He allegedly was hostile against a General Manager at the Oakland Raiders which led to his termination. The Pats released him after after allegations surfaced of rape and sexual assault.

Twitter Is Not Feeling How Dirty Mack Lil Fizz & Apryl Jones Are Disrespecting Moniece

Twitter Not Feeling Lil Fizz's Disrespect Towards Moniece Slaughter

Source: Vincent Sandoval / Getty

If you have been tuning in to this season of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, you are well aware of the mess involving Omarion’s ex, Apryl Jones, and his B2K bandmate Lil Fizz. The two have finally gone public with their suspect relationship, and the internet just isn’t here for it.

While Omarion just doesn’t seem to care at all, #LHHH viewers are absolutely disgusted with what they are witnessing, more specifically Fizz’s treatment of his baby mama, Moniece Slaughter. Since rumors of Fizz’s dirty macking ways began to circulate, Slaughter has been the primary recipient of disrespect and lies from both Fizz and Jones.

Apryl and Fizz tried to play Slaughter for a fool by claiming they were “just friends” and failed to acknowledge Moniece when they both saw her at a skating party. During a brief conversation with the couple, Moniece expressed that she knew they were together, but they never confirmed it to her. The whole scene was just awkward, with both Fizz and Apryl walking away from the situation.

Moniece spoke on the Apryl and Fizz smashing during an interview with fellow co-star Jason Lee on his Hollywood Unlock podcast, and she let the chopper ring. This time she doesn’t have to really say much because Twitter got her and are dragging the sorry couple for filth.

You can see all the well-deserved ether sent Apryl and Fizz’s way in the gallery below.

Twitter Explains Why It Won’t Suspend Orange Menace Donald Trump’s Account

Twitter Explains Why It Won't Suspend Donald Trump's Twitter Account

Source: EVA HAMBACH / Getty

Twitter is Donald Trump’s favorite weapon of choice when it comes to talking to loyal followers and dictating struggle policy. After Senator Kamala Harris called for his account to be suspended, Twitter has explained why it hasn’t and probably never will.

During last night’s (Oct.15) debate, Kamala Harris pressed Elizabeth Warren if she would join in the fight calling for Trump’s Twitter account to be suspended. In a Tweet, Harris pointed out that the occupant in the White House’s Tweets “incite violence, threaten witnesses and obstruct justice.”

Twitter responded to the Senator in a blog post, basically punting. The company stated it will only take action against “world leaders” if they explicitly violate Twitter’s rules. So basically, they won’t be doing anything.

Per Twitter:

“When it comes to the actions of world leaders on Twitter, we recognize that this is largely new ground and unprecedented. We understand the desire for our decisions to be “yes/no” binaries, but it’s not that simple. The actions we take and policies we develop will set precedent around online speech and we owe it to the people we serve to be deliberate and considered in what we do.”

“We focus on the language of reported Tweets, and do not attempt to determine all potential interpretations of the content or its intent.”

“However, if a Tweet from a world leader does violate the Twitter Rules but there is a clear public interest value to keeping the Tweet on the service, we may place it behind a notice that provides context about the violation and allows people to click through should they wish to see the content.”

A spokesperson for Harris reached out to BuzzFeed News doubling down on Harris’ argument to have Trump’s account suspended stating:

“When Trump is using his tweets to make threats, incite violence, and intimidate witnesses, this is insufficient.”

While it can be easily assessed from the blog post from Twitter won’t do anything, the company did share “enforcement scenarios.” Still, there is plenty of wiggle room for Trump to get aw with what he doing. Don’t expect to see Donald Trump’s suspended no time soon.

Chrissy Teigen Cooks President Trump On Twitter, Calls Him A “P*ssy Ass B*tch”

Premiere Of NBC's "Bring The Funny"

Source: FayesVision/WENN.com / WENN

Chrissy Teigen has become something of a legend via Twitter, using razor-sharp wit to great effect on the social media service while inspiring a hell of a lot of laughs. The wife of R&B singer John Legend became the target of one of President Donald Trump’s zany Twitter rants, prompting the model to fire back and call the former business mogul a p*ssy ass b*tch.”

Trump went on one of his typical early Twitter sprees on Sunday, calling attention to the push for criminal justice reform and slamming President Barack Obama in the process for, in his words, “couldn’t come close” to getting the bill signed. Trump’s critique came after an NBC Nightly News town hall featuring John Legend and hosted by Lester Holt from inside Sing Sing Prison, and the criminal justice reform bill came up in the discussion.

The president went on a four-tweet rampage over Republicans not being mentioned for bringing the bipartisan bill into fruition, taking swipes at Legend and his wife, writing, “Guys like boring musician, [John Legend] and his filthy mouthed wife, are talking now about how great it is – but I didn’t see them around when we needed help getting it passed.”

Teigen took the bait and railed on President Trump as only she can, prompting a number of retweets and responses to boot. Along with her name, the hashtag #FilthyMouthWife has also cropped up in the top trending topics across the nation.

Check out the chatter below.

Megan Thee Stallion 1st Artist To Take Over @TwitterMusic Handle, Holds Hot Girl Q&A

Megan Thee Stallion Takes Over @TwitterMusic, Hosts Q&A Session

Source: Bernard Smalls / @PhotosByBeanz

Megan Thee Stallion is out here living her best damn life. The leader of the Hot Girl Summer movement added another first on her list when she took over the @TwitterMusic handle.

During the Twitter takeover, Megan held a Hot Girl Q&A session with the account’s 12M followers sharing all sorts of tips and answering questions presented to her.

When fans asked her the burning question, what is the secret to her “strong knees?” The “Big Ole Freak” rapper had a surprising answer, Popeye’s legendary chicken sandwich.

Megan has already had some significant collaborations with her anthem “Hot Girl Summer” featuring Nicki Minaj currently charting. When asked what artist she wants to do a song with most, the name that came up should come as no surprise.

When asked if she would hop on a song with Ariana Grande, Megan gushed over the singers vocal skills and confirmed she would love to collaborate with her as well.

One hottie even asked if Megan would make Hottie World a reality television show? Thee Stallion seemed to be on board with that idea and also pressed MTV to make it happen.

Last but certainly not least, she also shared her personal tips in a thread for those hot girls currently in school who want to have a “Hot Girl Semester.” We would also like to see that on HD televisions as well, the world definitely needs more Megan. With the summer coming to a close, “Hot Nerd Fall” is in full swing.
