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.

Twitter Gives Mostly Positive Props To DJ Khaled’s ‘Khaled Khaled’ Album

Celebrities Attend The 69th NBA All-Star Game - Inside

Source: Kevin Mazur / Getty

DJ Khaled is now 12 albums deep with the release of his latest set, Khaled Khaled, another project packed with stars that some expected to appear and others who came as a surprise. Fans on Twitter are taking in the album after its Friday (April 30) release, and the reactions are still pouring in.

Khaled Khaled, which is the actual real name of the boisterous personality and executive, features an epic list of famed performers that include Cardi B, Lil Wayne, Meek Mill, Justin Timberlake, Migos, and more.

The album opens with the aforementioned Weezy F. Baby with vocals from Jeremih, and it’s good to see his name in the credits considering his health woes. The track, “THANKFUL,” is produced by Khaled and Kane Beatz and sets the tone of the album. The next track, “EVERY CHANCE I GET” pairs Lil Baby with Lil Durk over production from Khaled and Tay Keith, teasing what should be a potent mixtape collaboration between the pair that is forthcoming.

One of the apparent early faves is “BIG PAPER” with Cardi B all by her lonesome and produced by Khaled and Cool & Dre, and she’s definitely talking heavy on this one.

DJ Khaled flexes his production muscles on his own with “WE GOING CRAZY” featuring H.E.R. and all three of the Migos in a refreshing audio reunion of sorts. But the record folks were mostly wondering about was “SORRY NOT SORRY” with Jay-Z and Nas alongside James Fauntleroy and what most speculate to be Beyonce under the guise of “Harmonies Of The Hive.”

The album features two previously heard tracks featuring Drake in “POPSTAR” and “GREECE” and Megan Thee Stallion joins forces with Lil Baby and DaBaby on the single-ready “I DID IT.”

Justin Bieber, Bryson Tiller, 21 Savage, Buju Banton, and more round out the rest of the album. The reactions to the project in full have been largely positive with the requisite criticism here and there. We’ve got the reactions listed out below.

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!

Black Samurai Anime ‘Yasuke’ Drops On Netflix, Twitter Honors The Warrior

Yasuke

Source: Courtesy of Netflix / Netflix

Netflix has been churning out a high amount of content monthly, and many anime fans were anticipating the release of Black samurai series, Yaskuke, with Lakeith Stanfield voicing the lead. Released on Thursday (April 29), fans on Twitter seem to be approving of the show thus far.

The fictionalized tale of the Black servant to an Italian missionary adds elements of magic, mischief, and mecha, although the real-life version of Yasuke’s story was just as astounding. A Japanese warlord, amazed by the size of Yasuke, named him a bodyguard and bestowed upon him the rank of samurai, the first foreign-born and Black person to do so.

We haven’t seen the series yet so we’re going to Twitter to capture some of the reactions, spoiler-free at that.

Sen. Tim Scott Claims Progressives Called Him “N Word” & Says America Isn’t Racist

President Biden Delivers First Address To Joint Session Of Congress

Source: Drew Angerer / Getty

Sen. Tim Scott is usually trotted out by the Republican Party as an example that America has shed its racist past due to him earning one of the top elected positions in the land. Scott, who is Black, claimed that progressives have called him names like “Uncle Tom” and the “N Word” but then goes on to say America isn’t a racist country.

President Joe Biden held his first address with the United States Congress, laying out a number of ambitious plans while also highlighting some of the challenges and triumphs made by his administration in the wake of COVID-19, civil unrest, police reform discussions, and economic upheaval that is still ongoing.

CNN uploaded the address to YouTube, which can be viewed below.

Thursday (April 29) marks the 100th day of President Biden’s time in the White House, and many of the moves he’s made since taking office in January have been examined at length with criticism coming from Republicans and many on the right along with a few of Biden’s fellow Democrats who too had some issues with some of his moves.

The Republican Party’s response came from Sen. Scott of South Carolina, a Black man who boldly declared in his rebuttal that, “America is not a racist country.”

In Scott’s estimation, Biden’s call for many measures that progressives and liberals believe in is splitting America apart. There was also the typical talk that the response to COVID-19 and the closing of schools robbed children and the working public of normalcy they’ve grown used to. But what was baffling is Scott claiming progressives have called him a racist slur, which no real progressive would ever do.

“I get called Uncle Tom” and the N-word — by ‘progressives’! By liberals! Just last week, a national newspaper suggested my family’s poverty was actually privilege because a relative owned land generations before my time,” Scott said.

Scott then leaned into his stance that America isn’t racist and said, “it’s backwards to fight discrimination with different discrimination.”

He then goes into defending his side’s call for voting laws reform in some phantom attempt to stop cheating at the polls, a claim from the Republican Party that holds less and less merit over time as the evidence of voter fraud doesn’t add up to the belly-aching from conservatives and Republicans about voting.

“This is not about civil rights or our racial past. It’s about rigging elections in the future,” Scott fired off.

We don’t need to share any more of Sen. Scott’s speech to know that he’s selling the lie that progressives would call him a slur and that his party’s claims to right the imbalance of voting laws are about anything other than making a process that was largely error-free in the last major election despite all the tricks employed by former Blowhard-In-Chief, Donald Trump.

If you must, Sen. Tim Scott’s rebuttal can be viewed below. Keep scrolling to see responses from all sides on Twitter.

TDE Boss Top Dawg Announces May 7 Date, Twitter Thinks Kendrick Lamar Is Coming

60th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

Source: Christopher Polk / Getty

Top Dawg Entertainment might just have the most talented roster in music today, hence why each release from one of its stars causes shock waves throughout the industry. TDE boss Top Dawg tweeted out a date for next month attached to a mystery release some expect to be Kendrick Lamar’s return to the world.

“THE WAIT IS OVAH!!!! #TDE,” read the tweet from the TDE founder. The tweet features a timer and the TDE logo, with the end of the short clip revealing “5/7/21” but nothing else. The speculation occurring online at the moment is sky high, but the label likes to do things differently than most.

Between Lamar, the beloved SZA, SchooHboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SiR, Reason, Isiah Rashad, and Lance Skiiiwalker, a new full-length from any of them would be a huge musical event.

K-Dot hasn’t dropped a full-length studio album since 2017’s DAMN., and he was the lead curator of the Black Panther: The Album release. There have been reports that the Compton wordsmith would be leaning into a rock-influenced sound for his next album, another leap forward from Lamar.

SZA’s last release Ctrl was also in 2017, and she dropped a pair of singles in “Hit Different” and “Good Days” from what most expect to be her sophomore release. She also featured alongside Doja Cat for the “Kiss Me More” track.

Ab-Soul has been away from the album release schedule since 2016, but he had a relatively active 2020 with features and the surprise “Dangerookipawaa Freestyle” single.

Jay Rock’s slept-on Redemption in 2018 was his last full-length, and ScHoolboy Q’s last drop was 2019’s CrasH Talk.

Check out the Twitter reactions to Top Dawg’s tweet below.

Things Get Spicy Between Wendy Williams & Joseline Hernandez, Twitter Reacts

Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen - Season 17

Source: Bravo / Getty

Joseline Hernandez has been in the news of late due to the success of her Joseline’s Cabaret reality show series. Hernandez was a recent guest on The Wendy Williams Show and the pair got into it just a bit, which has Twitter reacting in kind.

As the episode hasn’t aired in most markets, the reactions we’ve seen on Twitter thus far are from clips fans have posted along with their observations of the perceived shade between Hernandez and Williams. The two are familiar with one another as Hernandez has been a guest on the show in its live format.

In the episode set to air Wednesday (April 28), fans say that the testiness of the conversation was notable considering that Hernandez has been a “Hot Topic” recipient in the past. From what we can ascertain, it appears that Hernandez felt that Williams undersold the success of Joseline’s Cabaret, which most might know from the chilling “double homicide” viral moment.

The Zeus Network series is definitely a popular one, which Hernandez proudly proclaimed as being number one in its market, but it appears that Williams didn’t agree with the assessment.

As a result, the clip that has surfaced by way of one Twitter user seems to be about Hernandez wanting Williams to recognize her success rather than tear her down. According to some observers, Hernandez should’ve opted to skip the show if she was looking for approval from the popular media personality.

When the episode is uploaded to the show’s website or YouTube, we’ll come back with more breakdown of the chat. For now, check out the reactions from Twitter.

UPDATE: The interview segment featuring Joseline Hernandez is now live and running on The Wendy Williams Show. Check it out below.

The JBP Boyz Are Byke To Business: Rory & Mal Return To ‘The Joe Budden Podcast’

Joe Budden Podcast Live - New York, NY

Source: Johnny Nunez / Getty

The Joe Budden Podcast went through a lineup change recently when longtime co-hosts Jamil “Mal” Clay and Rory Farrell left for reasons only known to them. On Wednesday (4/28), the JBP Boyz joined host Joe Budden after a few weeks and it appears that loyal fans of the pod are excited about the news.

While Rory and Mal’s presence was definitely missed, Joe Budden’s friends, Ice, and Ish, filled in capably while learning the job of podcasting on the fly. Both men, just like Rory and Mal, have career and business interests not related to the podcast world, but they brought a certain amount of real talk and tough love that fans of the show have rarely witnessed over the past five years.

Fan speculation as to why Rory and Mal vacated their microphone duties has ranged from unspoken beef to money issues and a host of other maladies. While we haven’t listened to the latest podcast episode to know exactly what Rory and Mal’s takes are, it is known that Budden was in contact with Rory over the break and it was apparent Budden missed his friends more than he missed them being co-hosts.

The return to the normal format might be a bit of a shakeup again for some considering the chemistry Ice and Ish provided, along with vocalist Emanny and other random guests. The podcast was just finding a good rhythm with the updated lineup, but the fans were committed to a return of the original crew during the duration.

At any rate, it’s good to see the gang back together. Hopefully, and perhaps with a larger space, Ish and Ice can make it back on later episodes.
