Meek Mill Returns To Social Media with New Video “War Stories”

Meek Mill Announces He's Officially Off Probation

Meek Mill has made ghosting all social media before dropping music a strategic rollout strategy it seems.

On July 21, when the Philadelphia rapper announced his fast from social media, smoking and sex fans suggested that new music was coming, the fans stand correct. 

Saturday the “Dreams and Nightmares” rapper dropped a new song and video for “War Stories.”

“War Stories On YouTube now https://youtu.be/3VZzO2UENsQ,” was Meek’s first tweet in about two and a half weeks. 

This track comes two months after releasing “Flamerz Flow.” The track samples the Isley Brothers’ classic ’80s hit “Ballad for the Fallen Soldier,” and the visual displays classic Meek. 

Director Carter Visual captures Meek Mill in his traditional element. A Philly rapper who emerged from the streets, still in the streets. Only this time, he does it for inspirational purposes.  

Meek’s outside whipping the Maybach, and he’s feasting with his gang. A true definition of boss status. Lil Uzi, and Bobby Shmurda both make cameos in “War Stories.”

As far as the song goes, Meek gives warning the opposition. Just because he rich doesn’t mean he isn’t active in the streets. 

“Think it’s sweet we getting money, but now we’re popping out. Ain’t throwing flags I’m dropping tags and n****s rocking out.”

Hip-Hop always feels better when Meek’s fans receive that intense energy and motivational street substance from him. They took to Twitter with their excitement of Meek’s return.

After you check out “War Stories” tell us what you think.

[WATCH] Tory Lanez and DaBaby Link Up For “SKAT”

Tori Lanez and Da Baby Skat | The Source

Tory Lanez and DaBaby link up for an energetic collaboration with “SKAT.” 

Initially there was some doubt that “SKAT” would actually be released stemming from the controversy involving Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion. When Lanez announced the song title and collaboration with DaBaby back in January, he received heavy online backlash. We’re all familiar with Meg’s accounts of her being shot in the foot by Tory last summer. Currently Lanez has pled not guilty to the charges and has continued to publicly deny involvement in Thee Stallion’s accusations. However some of her fans were still displeased with the Canadian rapper joining forces with her frequent collaborator, DaBaby. Thus leading Megan to weigh in unbothered on Twitter stating, “That sh*t was old and not cleared.” 

But today Tory Lanez delivered the video all cleared. 

The “SKAT” release follows Tory’s 12 track R&B project Playboy, which was released in March of 2021. Playboy spawned the emotional single “Feels” with Chris Brown, as the only featured collaboration.

Tory Lanez and DaBaby are known for bringing out of the ordinary visuals and “SKAT” is no different. On the scale of fun and catchy the video falls right at the top. Both artists actually stand out playing multiple character personas in the video.

Watch all the fun antics below in the visual for “SKAT” where Tory Lanez re-enacts Pinky’s character from the cult classic Next Friday to embody a young Michael Jackson’s aesthetic in the iconic “Thriller” video. While DaBaby is seen flexing as a boxer, priest and police officer. All while firing off his usual aggressive cadence trading bars with Tory over a victorious Nils & Foreign Tek production. “SKAT” is directed by Christian Breslauer.

Tory Lanez raps…

I ain’t got time for two things, what?

These stupid a** h**s and they feelings, ayy (Okay)

All independent, my b***ches just call and they get it

They know that this ballin’ authentic (Okay)

Chocolate vanilla get hot so I hopped out the dealer

I copped a new car and I tint it (Okay)

The Ultimate Rap League (URL) launched its latest Ultimate Madness 3 tournament back in April with both expected and surprising results. Round two of the battle rap showdown takes place Saturday night (May 8) as the competitors prepare to unleash their best bars at a chance to snag a $100,000 cash prize from Drake himself.

The preparation and turnaround time was a swift ordeal as the winners of the opening round last battled on April 24 live via the Caffeine app. In round two, the lineup is another star-studded list of rising battle rap wordsmiths and established veterans who have graced a number of big stages during their careers.

Saturday’s Ultimate Madness 3 Round 2 lineup is as follows:

  • Jakkboy Maine vs. Cortez
  • Drugz vs. Rum Nitty
  • Casey Jay vs. Prep
  • Swamp vs. Geechi Gotti

At this stage of the game, the hunger should be high for all involved and the added incentive of the cash grab to go along with the bragging rights comes complete with an appearance at the URL’s upcoming Night Of Main Events (NOME) show this June.

Check out the teaser for round two of the Ultimate Madness 3 tournament. Click here for more information.

#JayZ: Fans Praise Jay-Z’s Bars On DJ Khaled’s “SORRY NOT SORRY”

2019 Roc Nation THE BRUNCH - Inside

On Jay-Z‘s excellent “A Million and One Questions,” the Brooklyn superstar playfully asks “Is he gon’ ever fall off” to which most know the answer by now. After delivering yet another powerful string of bars on DJ Khaled’s “SORRY NOT SORRY” track, fans are propping up Hov and rightfully so while also giving his track partner Nas some shine too.

First, let’s share the lyrics from “SORRY NOT SORRY” below:

Sorry, that’s another B/Haters still ain’t recover from the other B/Mm, that’s a double B/Nah that’s a triple B, can’t forget ’bout the other Bey (Hey)/It’s the white gloves for me/Hater know not to touch me, I’m with the f*ckery (F*ck with me)/Humbly (Humbly), nah, respectfully/I’m a project baby, f*ck y’all expect from me (Technically)/’Merica’s disrespect for me/You killed Christ, you created religion, unexpectedly/Circular ice on Japanese whiskey, on my mezzanine/Overlookin’ the City of Angels, the angel invested in things

Nas glided on the track as well, making sure to mention his recent investment win in the cryptocurrency space with CoinBase among his other ventures. Jay-Z’s slight mention of angel investing also caught folks’ ears as well. The song has emerged as one of the early favorites from DJ Khaled’s Khaled Khaled album.

Thus far in 2021, this is the second major appearance of Jay-Z on a track, the first being “What It Feels Like” featuring the late Nipsey Hussle from the Judas & The Black Messiah: The Inspired Album project.

While it might be a long shot if we’ll ever get a follow-up to the excellent 4:44, Jay-Z is solidified in the eyes of many.

Travis Scott

Travis Scott has kept a lower profile of late after last dropping a project in 2019 with the collaboration album JackBoys. While he preps his latest studio album in Utopia for a 2021 release, the raging star announced the return of his Astroworld Festival for this coming November in Houston.

On Friday (April 30), which also happens to be Cactus Jack’s 29th birthday, Scott shared that the festival is on its way back with an expanded two-day format.

The event will hit H-Town’s NRG Park in the fall on November 5 through November 6, kicking off a weekend that will leave lasting memories for Scott’s legion of fans and for any concertgoers who miss the feel and energy of the live show due to the pandemic robbing many of that outlet for over a year and change.

The theme for Astroworld 2021 is “Open Your Eyes To A Whole New Universe” and the lineup will be meticulously curated by Scott himself and fans can expect to see rock star energy from all performers and set designs that will match the expectation of fans.

As the festival’s headlining act, Scott won’t disappoint in terms of performance and theatrics and while we don’t know yet who will join Scott on the Astroworld stages, his address book is stacked with some of the game’s best and brightest.

Passes for Astroworld Festival 2021 will be available on May 5 at 10 AM CT at AstroworldFest.com. Two-day General Admission and VIP packages will be available. Portions of the ticket sales will go towards the Cactus Jack Foundation which supports the educational endeavors of young people.

Check out the trailer for Astroworld Festival below.

Teyana Taylor Retired From Music Because She Felt Unappreciated At G.O.O.D. Music

Street Style - Paris Fashion Week - Womenswear Fall/Winter 2020/2021 : Day Three

Even though she released one of the best projects in 2018 Teyana Taylor didn’t feel comfortable at her recording home. She now says she left the game due to G.O.O.D. Music’s lack of support.

As spotted on Yahoo! Entertainment, the Harlem native is shedding more light on why her critically acclaimed album K.T.S.E. was her last. During a recent appearance on Sip ‘N Smoke, she revealed to Cam Newton her decision to retire from the music industry.

“At the end of the day, I’m a mom first,” she explained. “A mom, a wife, a woman. And I think for me, I put in a lot of work. I work very, very hard. So, if you feel unheard and unseen—like how I said earlier with my husband. He sees me, he hears me. I take that sh*t serious. Everything that I do. So if you’re my husband, or I’m signed, everybody that I’m aligned with should see me. They should hear me. They should feel me. If you don’t see me, hear me, or feel me, it’s a dub for you.”

The “Never Would Have Made It” singer went on to say that she felt very unappreciated at her record label.

“And I felt like the label wasn’t really hearing me and seeing me,” she continued. “I felt underappreciated. So, for my mental health, my mental well-being, for my kids, let me just put this on ice for a little [bit]. It’s not that I retired permanently. It’s more like, I just don’t feel like I want to move another inch for a company.”

Cypress Hill’s B-Real Roasts Steve Harvey For Disrespecting Hip-Hop Music

Celebrity Sightings In Los Angeles - May 29, 2020

Source: gotpap/Bauer-Griffin / Getty

Over the years, Steve Harvey has managed to annoy his fair share of people for various reasons, but more recently Cypress Hill rapper, B-Real has taken issue with the game show host’s lack of love for Hip-Hop music.

In a recent sit-down interview with Tony A. Da Wizard on Roadium Radio, the OG Hip-Hop legend explained his beef with the comedian turned game show host and where it stems from.

Reminiscing about the time Steve was hired at 92.3 The Beat in Los Angeles to give OG Hip-Hop host Big Boy some competition, B-Real remembers Harvey constantly talking down on Hip-Hop music in the hallways.

Detailing how he too was working at The Beat doing the Soul Assassins mix show, Real recalls the time Harvey began working there and recognizing him due to his career as a “famous comedian.”

“But, we also knew him because he was overtly against Hip-Hop. He would speak against it, ‘Man, f*ck that sh*t ain’t music… Y’all don’t know how to talk to women and y’all be disrespecting the women and all this violent sh*t.’ Like just keying in on all the negative and not the positives.”

Yeah, that sounds about right.

Continuing to explain his stance on Harvey’s disdain for Hip-Hop, B adds “He’s sh*ttin’ on something that saved a lot of Black and Brown lives and that should be something that he celebrates because you’re a part of that in some indirect way,” B-Real opined.

He even pointed out how Harvey took a few more shots at Hip-Hop after the Earth Wind & Fire and Isley Brothers Verzuz that he hosted a few weeks back saying, “‘You see Hip Hop ain’t got this type of swag and blah, blah, blah. You ain’t gon’ see fly songs like this on some Hip Hop.’”

We wonder if Steve Harvey’s going to address this at all. Probably not but you never know.

Peep the comments at the 1:43 mark and let us know your thoughts on B-Real’s take.

Peep The Video for DJ Khaled’s Jay-Z & Nas Featured “Sorry Not Sorry”

DJ Khaled - "Sorry Not Sorry" Music Video

Source: screencap / Youtube

Last night DJ Khaled finally released his much-hyped album, Khaled Khaled, and to accompany the drop he came through with visuals for the first single off the project, “Sorry Not Sorry.”

Featuring Hip-Hop icons, Nas and Jay-Z, the track also incorporates the vocal talents of James Fauntleroy and Harmonies by The Hive. For the visuals to the dope cut, Nas, Jay and Khaled get their grown man on by styling in high-end tuxedos while toasting to decades of success and reminding everyone they’re still not to be played with.

“Its white gloves for me/haters know not to touch me, I’m with the f*ckery (f*ck with me),” Jay matter-of-factly states. Real talk, we believe him. You can take the man out of Brooklyn but you can’t take the Brooklyn out the man.

It’s hella dope to see Jay and Nas on a track together again as it shows they’ve come a long way from their drama and the first collaboration, “Black Republican.” Yeah, a title like that in 2021 would have social media outraged one way or another regardless. Just sayin.’

Check out the visuals for “Sorry Not Sorry” below and let us know if you’re f*ckin’ with this or not.

T-Pain Discovered Instagram’s Direct Message Hidden Folder In Hilarious Fashion

Premiere Of Columbia Pictures' "Bad Boys For Life" - Arrivals

Source: Jemal Countess / Getty

T-Pain, the Call Of Duty master that he is, might not be the savviest person in the world when it comes to social media tools. The “Rappa Ternt Sanga” just discovered a hidden folder for direct messages on Instagram and shared his findings in a hilarious fashion.

By way of a TikTok video, Tallahasse Pain shows off the long list of celebrity direct message requests from folks in the same business as he is.

“I was today years old when I found out about the request folder on Instagram that’s full of celebs trying to reach me,” T-Pain’s caption read with a helium-tinged voiceover effect and the artist’s making an amused face.

Folks such as Fergie, YBN Nahmir, Viola Davis, Diplo, Keri Hilson, and even entities like Nickolodeon all attempted to reach T-Pain unbeknownst to him.

As T-Pain added in the captions, he assumed that any time someone sent him a DM that it would go to the main folder. However, if you’re not following people or they’re not following you, the messages will sometimes get grabbed by the request folder.

“I apologize to everybody on this list and the hundreds of others I couldn’t fit in this video,” T-Pain shared in the caption.

One can only imagine the massive amount of bags and potential collaborations that T-Pain missed out on over the past few years but hopefully, this gets the ball rolling creatively so he can mend some of those mistakenly broken bridges.  Also, T-Pain, hire a social media manager pronto!
