The award-winning recording artist and wife, Amber Najm, announced Wednesday (May 11) via social media that the inaugural Wiscansin Fest will debut June 11 in Milwaukee at Rave.

The “Buy U A Drank” creator, who has been building up anticipation for the first-ever festival with a 19-city “The Road to Wiscansin Tour,” names a 17 acts line-up with the announcement that includes chart-topping superstars and longtime collaborators of the Tallahassee native, featuring Lil Jon, O.T.

“The first of its kind @nappyboyentertainment presents a line up that I hand picked myself,” T-Pain wrote with celebration emojis in the Instagram caption with a photo of the Festival flyer. “This one means so much to me. Go get your tickets link in my bio before they sell out. See you on June 11th in the only place that felt right- Milwaukee, WISCANSIN.”

The word “Wiscansin” originates from T-Pain’s verse on the 2008 classic “Can’t Believe It” featuring Lil Wayne from his gold-selling third album, Three Ringz (Jive). T-Pain changed the pronunciation of the state, Wisconsin, to “Wiscansin” to make a rhyme with “mansion. The success of “Can’t Believe It” spawned a remix with Justin Timberlake. In 2018, T-Pain launched a collegiate-themed apparel line, Wiscansin University, inspired by the word.

Many are still mourning the untimely passing of Juice WRLD. One person in particular is the late rapper’s girlfriend, Alli Lotti, who made it a point to let the world know what kind of individual he was.

As spotted on Hip-Hop N More Juice’s significant other showed courage and heart by making an appearance at the recent Rolling Loud Los Angeles. As an unexpected surprise, Ally Lotti took the stage to speak about her love and his legacy. “I just wanted to come out here and let everyone know that Jarad loved every single person that he helped on this Earth,” she said. “He literally loved every single one of you guys” she revealed.

Lotti continued to further detail his connection to his fans. “There was not a time that he showed me any different love than he felt for you. He wants everyone to know that you need to take any negative thing in your life – he would tell you every time he saw you – and change that to a positive situation.”

She also used the platform to call out the country’s growing prescription drug crisis. “Addiction knows no boundaries and its impact goes way beyond the person fighting it. Jarad was a son, brother, grandson, friend and so much more to so many people who wanted more than anything to see him defeat addiction,” she revealed.

The festival also curated a 20 minute video to commemorate the fallen rapper with A Boogie wit da Hoodie, G Herbo and Ski Mask the Slump God all performing their collaborations with Juice. Naturally the crowd was receptive as the Chicago native was originally supposed to perform a set.

You can see the footage from the event below.

Cardi B Suffers A Wardrobe Malfunction While Performing [Video]

Cardi B proves once again that she is quick on her feet. She called a cozy audible while performing at a recent concert.


The Grio is reporting that the Bronx Bombshell got thrifty during her set at the Bonnaroo Festival. As expected there were copious amounts of twerking while she rapped through her first couple of songs. Unfortunately her sequin outfit couldn’t handle all the gyrating and it split. In typical Bardi fashion she didn’t hide anything from her fans. “I just wanna let y’all know that my outfit rip” she admitted. She promptly exited the stage.

Upon returning she was wearing a white terry cloth, that means very soft, bathrobe. She proceeded to let the crowd know that she would be making the best out of the mishap. “We gonna keep it moving, baby,” Cardi informed her fans. “We gonna keep it sexy. I don’t know how in this f***ing robe, but we gonna do it!”

You can see Cardi give the people in attendance her best post shower vibes below.
