Floyd Mayweather Addresses The Cooking Of His Ankles By Bone Collector

2nd Annual Monster Energy $50K Charity Challenge Celebrity Basketball Game

Floyd Mayweather was the butt of jokes after a video of the legendary boxer getting crossed up by street basketball legend Bone Collector made the Internet rounds.  In typical Mayweather fashion, the Money Team honcho praised the vicious crossover but not without letting the world know he’s filthy rich still.

TMZ Sports reports:

The boxing legend hit up a fashion show at Avalon in L.A. — thrown by BoomCups — just 1 night after the $50k Charity Challenge Celebrity Basketball Game … where Bone crossed him up so hard, Mayweather hit the deck.

“It was a cool move,” Mayweather admitted … “but did they tell you I got MVP? So, we gotta talk about me being MVP!”

He’s right, Floyd did get MVP of the game and his team won by 40 points — but all everyone is talking about is that viral clip with Bone Collector.

“It was a good move, but that comes with the territory. It’s not the NBA, and we live and we learn.”

As Mayweather steps off, he let the cameras know that his name will ring beyond his own existence despite getting dropped to the hardwood. And on top of it, Money stunted on everyone by saying he owns a $52 million Beverly Hills home that he’s never slept in.

Snoop Dogg Says U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Should Get Paid More Than “Sorry Ass F*cking Men*

U.S. WNT Arrival at Newark Liberty International Airport

Snoop Dogg has become more than the living Hip-Hop icon that he is, and has emerged as a worthy cultural commentator as well. After the U.S. Women’s Soccer squad captured the World Cup in epic fashion, Uncle Snoop has some sharp words for the U.S. Men’s team.

Taking to Instagram, a relaxed Snoop got right to business and wasted little time in blasting the disparity in pay. Snoop notes that the women earn $90,000 per player in capturing getting to the semifinal round versus $500,000 each for the men. In all, according to reports, the women will get $260,000 each while the men’s team would go home with $1.1 million each.

“The sorry ass f*cking men from the U.S. soccer team, they ain’t ever won sh*t, ain’t gonna ever win sh*t, can’t get out the f*cking first round,” Snoop said in the video. Not that we’re soccer experts, but he’s right, you know.

Check out the clip below. Lower your speakers because there’s some colorful language.

YG’s SUV Involved In Police Shootout, Rapper Says He Was Not On Scene

BET Awards 2019

Source: FayesVision/WENN.com / WENN

An SUV registered in the name of YG was involved in a high-speed chase and police shootout earlier this week, but the rapper is stating he was nowhere near the scene. The “Go Loko” star has gone on record saying he was in a recording studio at the time of the shooting, and reports state the vehicle was a company car.


TMZ
reports:

The Compton rapper tells TMZ … “I was nowhere near the scene of this incident and had been in a recording studio all day in Hollywood. I was there until after midnight on the Fourth of July and didn’t learn of these events until after they happened.”

Our sources say YG is the registered owner of the black Cadillac Escalade that was involved in Wednesday night’s pursuit, which began with a deputy-involved shooting in Compton. The SUV had aftermarket bulletproof glass and armor. We’re told the Escalade is a company car, and YG did not know the car was being used at the time.

Police say they were initially called to apprehend a reckless DUI suspect, but detectives then responded to a deputy-involved shooting after an innocent bystander was caught in the crossfire and shot dead at the scene.

Following the deadly shootout, a high-speed chase ensued and the pursuit finally came to an end in Inglewood.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says more shots were fired during the chase, with suspects shooting at deputies and a Sheriff’s helicopter, which was not struck by bullets.

One suspect has been arrested while another is at large.

Lil Nas X Says Backlash Has Increased Since Coming Out As Gay [Video]

Hot 97 Summer Jam 2019

Source: Bernard Smalls / @PhotosByBeanz

Lil Nas X took ownership of his story and identity after coming out as gay and has handled much of the response in the savviest ways possible. The “Old Town Road” star says backlash has increased sine his big reveal and in a new BBC interview the Atlanta native seems at peace with his decision.

BBC News reports:

US rapper Lil Nas X has revealed he has experienced a backlash on social media since posting cryptic hints on Twitter that he is gay.

“I’m not angry… because I understand how they want that reaction,” said the 20-year-old performer. “So I’m just going to joke back with them.”

Lil Nas X – real name Montero Lamar Hill – told BBC Breakfast he felt like he was “opening doors for more people”.

“I don’t want to live my entire life… not doing what I want to do,” he added.

He said he hoped his fans would “feel comfortable” but admitted homosexuality was “not really accepted in either the country [or] hip-hop communities”.

Denzel Curry’s Performance Demonstrates Why He’s A Real Master Of Ceremony (Video)

Denzel Curry is a contemporary Rap star who is influenced by the greats. The Carol City, Florida MC channeled JT Money’s Poison Clan with the artwork of his 2019 album, ZUU. Signed to Loma Vista Recordings through the same executive (Tom Whalley) responsible for first signing Tupac Shakur, Curry is reaching new audiences after years of pushing through. A highlight from ZUU is “RICKY.” The FNZ-produced single calls back to a spectrum of Southern Rap sounds. Denzel delivers wisdom that can be mistaken for simplicity as he breaks down the differing life-lessons from his parents surrounding women and loyalty. In spitting the bars, Curry shows a Punk Rock-informed energy. Heads who caught his Rage Against The Machine “Bulls On Parade” rendition (including some original bars) are familiar with the pride Curry puts into his shows. Denzel Curry Covers Rage Against The Machine & Slays The Evil Empire For the “Open Mic” spot, he does the same. With a hoodie up and fronts in, the Flying Lotus, Rick Ross, and Juicy J collaborator commands a performance to the camera. No bar is delivered without intensity. ZUU features Ross and Tay Keith, among others.

Blueface Releases Full Video Of “Clout Chasing” Mom & Sis, Says They Tried To Fleece Him

BET Awards 2019 - Pre Show

Source: Maury Phillips / Getty

Blueface found himself going viral earlier this week but it wasn’t for his chosen profession of rhythmically-challenged rapping. The “Thotiana” star was recorded booting his mother and sister in a video where he accused them of clout chasing and has released the full video of the altercation while stating his sister tried to fleece him for bread.

From Blueface’s Instagram:

“Sense they wanna go viral so bad this the real story my mom got tired of my broke ass sister free loading at her house so she brought her to mine an I wasn’t going for it I already got her an apartment guess that wasn’t enough she want my car she want me to buy her a car off the lot an some more stuff I was homeless in my own car for years ain’t nobody wanna let me stay at they house I had to thug it out but I C my fans ain’t real fans y’all turn like corners fucc all you fake ass fans that’s y I’m in it just for the money.

Okay, then.

Blueface caught a lot of heat on Twitter and across social media for literally KICKING his sister out his home, and it was alleged he did so in favor of his two live-in girlfriends. The sister expressed as such that the women in her brother’s life were the reason he shunned his family from his home and riches.

Talib Kweli & B-Real Discuss People Of Color Being Blocked Out Of Legal Cannabis

B-Real is the latest guest on People’s Party With Talib Kweli. There, the member of Cypress Hill and Prophets Of Rage tells the co-founder of Black Star and Reflection Eternal about the origins of his groups. The Los Angeles, California native breaks down Cypress’ distinction among the the handful of artists on SNL‘s all-time “banned” list. The legendary MC/producer/entrepreneur also opens up about his neighborhood ties, and how gang graffiti coined him a name that he’s kept hot for nearly 30 years. In addition to music, B-Real and Talib discuss cannabis. Apart from “Dr. Green Thumb” recalling his days rolling with Brand Nubian to Harlem to cop a legendary strain en route to New Rochelle, B-Real offers some blunt reality surrounding the booming bud business. Bun B Tells Talib Kweli Why T.R.O.Y. Is The Biggest Hip-Hop Song Of All Time (Video) At 43:00, Talib describes the efficiency of recently buying cannabis at a dispensary in Colorado. “It was so easy, and I got really good weed. I was amazed at how people are caking up on it. But the Black and Brown people are locked out of that. It’s hard for us to even get into those spaces when we took the risk—our communities took the risk.” B-Real, who is involved with Gas Co. (and wears the hat for his appearance) responds, “They have this thing called social equity, which means if you’re an offender, where you’ve been convicted of a sort of cannabis-related crime, it’s supposed to put you in the front of the line [to get sanctions]. And for most, it does. And that’s a lot of Black and Brown people that can apply and actually get some of these licenses. But the problem is, a lot of us can’t afford those. And when we try to come into the scenario, we usually come in by ourselves, independent, with not much financial backing. They make it very hard for us to exist in that market because of what it costs to actually invest in actually becoming a cannabis brand or company. Supposedly, the system is that at some point, if you can’t afford that permit, they have a backup fund that pays for it for you because they want these permits working. But the problem is, even if they give you that, you still have to have the capital to actually start the business. My advice to any Black and Brown person trying to get in the game: there’s a lot of people operating sort of the same way that the corporate structure does. The corporate [structure] is a collective of a lot of people with money, obviously. They move all their money pretty much together. So what a lot of people are doing now is they’re partnering up with people that want to invest in the cannabis game, but they’re all investing together and going in as one. That’s what our folks need to do: they need to f*ckin’ get together.” Kweli summarizes, “Collective and cooperative economics.” B-Real Details How He Developed 1 Of Hip-Hop’s Most Distinctive Voices (Video) Co-host Jasmin Leigh interjects that she noticed a Black-owned dispensary in her neighborhood becoming white-owned overnight. B-Real explains, “They’re not making it easier for us. But that’s why I say we have to sort of unify our money and sort of move together in that business to have a presence there. They’re not gonna make it easy for us. They’ve made it easy for the corporate structure to get in. It’s just that some people have figured out how the corporations move.” B-Real notes that his proposed strategy has worked, and private investors have found success without outside backing. “It’s just a matter of people approaching the right people within our community and saying, ‘Hey, let’s move in this together.’ Like you see, a lot of athletes now are getting into the cannabis sector.” Kweli draws on what B-Real says regarding Black and Brown unity and stresses the importance of that bond regarding issues approaching the 2020 election. The two veteran artists move into politics for the close of the extensive and dynamic discussion. Fab 5 Freddy’s Documentary Sets The Record Straight About A Chronic Problem (Video Trailer) Elsewhere in the interview, B-Real describes bringing in percussionist Eric Bobo as an official member of Cypress Hill. He also describes an especially significant episode of his Smoke Box involving Pop/Rock singer Melissa Etheridge. #BonusBeat: Talib Kweli and B-Real were both featured on Chris Webby’s 2015 song “Dopamine,” which also has Trae Tha Truth and Grafh:
