Kanye West “DONDA” Still Not Out Despite Todays Release Date

DONDA

When Kanye West announced that his album DONDA would be released today, Friday, July 23, fans instantly anticipated his new music.

Unfortunately, after back-to-back listening parties, numerous praises for the project, and a few last-minute feature additions, DONDA is still incomplete. This is a fact because the album isn’t out yet, despite the reported release date. West has yet to address why DONDA failed to drop at midnight.

Yesterday the Chicago rapper filled Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium for his second listening party for Donda.

During the Donda show, which is named after West’s late mother, Ye played several tracks with features from some of the biggest names in rap music.

Fans were even able to live-stream the event on Apple Music.

The last track Kanye played featured a verse from Jay-Z. Hov’s verse nearly broke the internet with a bar from his verse. Jay-Z raps: “This might be the return of the throne Throne/ Hova and Yeezus/ Like Moses and Jesus/ You’re not in control of my thesis.”

We all know Kanye is a perfectionist, so the fact that he wants to put out a perfect project is expected from the music and fashion mogul. But fans are still upset that the album isn’t here today.

Fans took it to Twitter to express their frustration.

Do you think we’ll get Kanye West highly anticipated release DONDA before the day is over?

Lil Uzi Vert Looking To Purchase Planet

lil uzi vert planet

Lil Uzi Vert has his sights set on his next big purchase — a planet.

His close friend Grimes took to Twitter to show her followers the planet that Uzi is in the process of purchasing. The tweet claims it’s called WASP-127b and it’s almost one and a half times bigger than Jupiter.

“Apparently @LILUZIVERT owns this planet – just a heads up.”

Uzi responded by saying he was trying to surprise fans with the purchase but he’s still working on it.

Grimes claims he would be the first human to legally own a planet.

The Philly native was recently in the news for a diamond facial piercing that cost $24 million. Uzi acquired the rare pink diamond from famed jeweler Elliot Eliante. It was inserted into the center of his forehead, via dermal implant. Within months fans noticed the diamond was missing on a date night out with his girlfriend JT. Uzi never made any official comments as to why he removed the gem but there was speculation around his mental state.

Complex reached out to NASA to see if this was even a real possibility, with no response so far.

There is an outer space treaty that prevents nations from owning planets but not individuals. Lil Uzi Vert can now add outer space to his list of assets.

Details on Fredo Bang and Lit Yoshi Arrest in Miami Overnight

fredo bang arrest

Add Fredo Bang’s name to the list of rappers with arrest by the police. Bang and another Baton Rouge rapper, Lit Yoshi, who was already out on a $1.82 million bond, were arrested yesterday in Miami. 

Thursday afternoon, federal agents searched a south Florida home that Bang, whose real name is Fredrick Givens II, and Yoshi stayed in. The motive and what authorities discovered during the raid are still uncertain, but it’s reported that the two artists were arrested on Louisiana warrants. 

The arrest came one day before the rapper was supposed to take the stage at South Florida’s Rolling Loud music festival. 

Yoshi, whose real name is Mieyoshi Edwards, now faces new charges as he waits for his trial in Baton Rouge for what prosecutors are calling a violent gang war allegedly involving fellow Baton Rouge rapper NBA Youngboy

Bang and Yoshi are in a rap group known as Top Boy Gorilla, or TBG, which had been allegedly feuding with the Youngboy’s NBA, or Never Broke Again Crew. 

According to the Miami Herald, two years ago, Miami-Dade police homicide detectives had been looking to speak to Givens and Edwards about the feud. The reason: somebody in a passing car opened fire on YoungBoy — whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden — outside the Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach.

The shoot-out ended with YoungBoy’s girlfriend being shot and wounded. Three innocent bystanders were grazed; a man from Texas, his girlfriend, and her 5-year-old son. Lastly, one stray bullet killed Mohamad Jradi, 43, a Hertz rental car employee who had just finished his shift across the street.

No one has been charged in the Miami-Dade shooting.

Unfortunately, prosecutors in Louisiana have publicly linked Edwards and the TBG group to the Sunny Isles Beach shooting. According to the Advocate, a judge in Louisiana ruled that evidence of the Sunny Isles Beach shooting could be used against Edwards in his upcoming trial.

We’re keeping an eye on this as more develops.

There were no injuries and the stage is being reset for the weekend.” They added, “In case you see it on the news, a screen fell down at one of our stages. Nobody was hurt and it will be fixed before doors open tomorrow. The show goes on!”

Rumored Drop of Cactus Jack x Fragment x Air Jordan 1 Highs July 29

rumored fragment Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Release Date 1

Travis Scott and fashion are seemingly hand-and-hand now. If the ASTROWORLD rapper isn’t making hits, he’s making fits.

Fresh from his Pop Smoke-inspired Dior collaboration, it’s alleged that the Houston rap fashionista is dropping a new version of his Cactus Jack 1s. 

According to the respectable shoe platform Sneaker Newsit’s rumored that the high-top Fragment Travis Scott Air Jordan 1’s will drop on July 29. 

The Fragment 1’s, which is a combination of the Japanese musician Hiroshi Fujiwara and La Flame’s respective designs on the ubiquitous silhouette, is the sequel to his May 2019 drop. 

Last week, images of the shoe surfaced on the web. The shoe features a premium tumbled leather upper in white but is paired with Fragment’s signature blue accents and the large reverse Swoosh on the sides pulled from Scott’s pair. Adding to the design is the duo’s logos stamped on the heel while a sail midsole and a blue outsole sit underneath.

Sneaker News said, “This triumvirate of designer, entertainer, and brand will go down as one of the year’s best releases, and with a rumored release date of July 29th, this drop will stand as one of the most important of the year and of Travis Scott’s ever-growing catalog of Nike/Jordan collabs.”

Cactus Jack’s merchandise has been a hot commodity and the hypebeast and sneaker resellers will make it difficult to cops these drops. However based on past performance and a loaded product page on Scott’s online shop, there’s speculation that an early raffle for the shoes could happen.

This has been the protocol for nearly all of his footwear collaborations. 

Although there is technically no “official” release date for the Cactus Jack Fragment 1’s, the rumored released date of July 29, looks promising.

Tory Lanez Calls Cassidy One of His Favorite Rappers

Tory Lanez Cassidy

After Tory Lanez delivered a firery freestyle on Funkmaster Flex, Cassidy didn’t waste any time accusing the Canadian rapper of biting his style.  And the Canadian rapper didn’t waste any time responding. 

Tory snapped in the booth with his freestyle. While he spit a plethora of punchlines, Lanez also seemingly addressed being framed for the alleged Megan Thee Stallion shooting, which went viral. But when the Larsiny fam rapper heard Tory Lanez freestyle, he heard many similarities in his flow. 

Cassidy took it to Twitter to call out the “SKAT” rapper. Cass said, “I’m @torylanez favorite rapper #RNS Ain’t no denying that  #GoatGang  Show me the respect I deserve & #LetsGetToThisChicken  #BARSisBack #DaEnergy”

Tory followed up and responded to his comments. “U are one of my favorite rappers Cass,” stated Lanez. “What’s the problem?” Then Tory spoke on the respect he had for the Philadelphia battle rapper. “I guess this is what happens when you try to pay homage,” he writes. “The first freestyle I shouted ya name out because you did inspire me. The second one I went on YOUR beat. Sh*t is sad how you old n***as be mad at the young n***as for not showing love then when we do…we get responses like this.”

F267ECC1 81BC 4B46 86CD D89B8C5C7AE6

It’s safe to say, Cassidy could have took Tory’s freestyle out of context, and rather than Cass seeing it as respect, he took it as a threat. At least Tory did not escalate it too far. Instead he showed the world that he is definitely inspired by Cassidy.

[WATCH] Cassidy Accuses Tory Lanez Of Stealing His Flows

Screen Shot 2021 07 22 at 8.33.56 AM

Tory Lanez recently visited HOT 97 and dropped a five-minute freestyle over Cassidy’s “I’m A Hustla” beat, but it didn’t take long before Cassidy noticed that the guy accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion sounds just like him.

Cas took to IG last night to compare Lanez’s raps with his own, showing that Lanez flow sounds eerily similar to Cassidy, not only on this week’s HOT 97 freestyle, but in a rhyme Lanez spit as far back as 2017.

“I’m @torylanez favorite rapper #RNS,” he wrote. “Ain’t no denying that. #GoatGang. Show me the respect I deserve & #LetsGetToThisChicken #BARSisBack #DaEnergy.”

In the most recent freestyle, Lanez even went as far as saying that he was framed in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting, which only got him dragged further in the blogosphere. Listen the full freestyle below.
