A post shared by Dreamville (@dreamville) on

The Hip-Hop world was on notice after J. Cole and his sprawling Dreamville Records team rolled out a series of images highlighting the gang was hard at work on a new compilation project featuring, well, everybody. After months of preparation and a behind the scenes documentary, Revenge Of The Dreamers III is now available and the reaction on Twitter has been robust.

In the early hours of Friday morning (July 5), J. Cole announced the release of the new album via Twitter but not without sharing some thoughts on the process.

“Revenge album dropping 2nite. Know that this album represents community and the unheard unsung artist that fight and bleed daily to be felt. There will be someone you never heard of on this album. Look them up and support them if they resonate with you. A follow goes a long way,” Cole tweeted just ahead of its release.

He added, “Same goes for the producers that go unheard and make beats all day every day hoping to cut through. To the producers and artists that came through but didn’t make the album, you are there in spirit. Thank you for your presence, the energy of those sessions was the most magical.”

Cole ended the line of tweets with, “Thank you to Every artist on Dreamville for allowing me to be a part of your journey and in turn inspiring me and making me proud constantly. I’m proud of y’all for this album.”

On Twitter, several hashtags related to the release of Revenge Of The Dreamers began trending and we’ve scoured them all to get the best reactions which can be seen below.

MAGA Twitter Plays Itself Again With New Nike Boycott #WalkAwayFromNike

The MAGA nutballs are back at it again after Nike decided not to run a special 4th of July edition of its sneakers featuring the Betsy Ross version of the American Flag due to its ties with racism and slavery. Blaming Colin Kaepernick and political correctness, folks with Right-leaning politics have a new boycott rallying call but it appears misguided.

The hashtag #WalkAwayFromNike began trending Wednesday morning (July 3) and the responses have ranged from users saying that the sports apparel company has betrayed American values, to place all of this on Kap and his continued fight for social awareness.

Just like MAGA Twitter’s last boycott, this current incarnation has spawned jokes and slander, which we’ve got featured below.

PrettyLittleThing X Ashanti Launch event

Ashanti is proving that things to get better with time and at 38, she is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful women walking the planet. Over the weekend in Los Angeles, the R&B singer stunted in all gold to promote her new swimwear line collaboration with Pretty Little Thing, which was designed by her sister, Shia.

It’s fitting that Ashanti is getting into the swimwear game, this after she’s found a great addition to her brand visibility via her Instagram page in where she shows off an array of revealing yet classy looks. Considering the interest in the field and being a woman of, ahem, considerable assets herself, swim fashion could be a smart game for her to place herself in.

Check out the images of Ashanti in all her glorious gold below.

Kendrick Perkins Breaks News That Kawhi Leonard MAY Go To Lakers, #NBATwitter Is On Fire #KawhiToLA

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Toronto Blue Jays

Source: Vaughn Ridley / Getty

To say that the NBA free agency period has been wild would be a massive understatement and no bigger name is left on the docket than Kawhi Leonard. After free agent big man Kendrick Perkins suggested in a tweet that the Toronto Raptors superstar was heading to the Los Angeles Lakers, NBA Twitter has been on fire since.

“Just heard that Kawhi is meeting with the Clippers tonight but the Lakers hold the upper hand, unless Doc work his Magic tonight it’s looking very strong that Kawhi will be in Purple and Gold,” Perkins tweeted on Monday (July 1).

With Leonard hailing from Los Angeles, most analysts figured he’d want to return to his home state and try his hand in the game there despite bringing Toronto its first championship and bringing a winning culture to the franchise.

Leonard, who just turned 28 a few days ago, is entering his prime and was already an elite player. If he does indeed head to Los Angeles, he’ll join an older but still capable LeBron James and talented big man Anthony Davis.

We’ve got reactions from the trending topic #KawhiToLA below.

Bobby Bonilla secured perhaps the biggest bag finesse in all of sports by way of a deferred contract payout from the New York Mets, and each year he’s due 1.19 million despite not having played since 2001. Since 2011, the retired MLB slugger has been getting paid on July 1, known by baseball media as “Bobby Bonilla Day.”

Now 56 years of age and off the radar, for the most part, Bonilla’s name began trending on Twitter as it has in times past. From sportswriters to casual observers, users on the social media platform are having a great time with the jokes at the Mets’ expense.

Check out some of our fave reactions to Bobby Bonilla Day below.

B2K just wrapped up its Millenium tour to the delight of fans of the longstanding group, but it appears that it might be the final time folks see the gang together.  Omarions ex and baby momma Apryl Jones appears to be dating B2K member Fizz and there’s footage out there to prove it.

Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Moniece Slaughter made earlier claims that her son’s father and ex-boyfriend Fizz was with Jones, fueling speculation as to why Omarion wanted off the Millenium Tour, not including the drama Raz B was contending with.

Although there was just chatter about Fizz and Apryl dating, Twitter was on fire today after several images hit the Internet of the two in bed and doing things that couples do.  As it stands, the reactions on Twitter are on fire as to be expected.

We’ve collected all the images and footage we could find online, and we’ve captured a handful of the tweets as well.

Rapper & YG Affiliate Slim 400 Shot In Compton, Twitter Sends Up Prayers

Interscope BET Party

With much of Southern California Hip-Hop fans still reeling from the senseless death of Nipsey Hussle, another rapper has been reported shot. Slim 400 was reportedly struck 10 times in Compton and is currently in critical but stable condition.

TMZ reports:

Rapper Slim 400 was just rushed to a Los Angeles Hospital after suffering multiple gunshot wounds.

Law enforcement sources tell us they got a call around 8:30 PM Friday night for a male who had been shot in Compton. We’re told Slim was the victim, though it’s unclear exactly where he suffered the gunshot wounds.

Our sources say what led up to the shooting is currently unclear … though a black vehicle suspected to be involved in the incident was seen leaving the scene.

The outlet adds that Slim 400 has worked alongside YG and Sad Boy Loko for the track “Brusin” in times past. Some fans are noting how this must be especially difficult for YG after losing his Nipsey Hussle just months ago.

Reaction on Twitter to the news of the shooting has been ongoing. We’ve collected some of the responses below.

Madlib & Freddie Gibbs Drop Long-Awaited BANDANA LP, Hip-Hop Twitter Reacts #BANDANA

Pitchfork Music Festival 2015 - Day 3

Source: Daniel Boczarski / Getty

Madlib and Freddie Gibbs astounded listeners with their unlikely audio pairing back in 2014 for their Piñata project. The duo is back after five years for its latest project, BANDANA, and the reaction on Twitter says quite a bit about the potency of the record.

Featuring Black Thought, Pusha T, Killer Mike, Anderson.Paak, and Yasiin Bey, Gangsta Gibbs carries the rhyming load without pressure. Over Madlib’s typically dusty and dope sound, Gibbs and the features torch everything they touch and despite the stylistic differences, each artist appears to be right at home.

We’ve collected some of the reactions from Twitter below from the #BANDANA hashtag. Before you get there, stream the album first.

The 2019 BET Awards has concluded and without doubt, it’s been all the buzz since the curtains were drawn. In the wake of the lavish affair, those in attendance and watching at home were treated to some star-making moments and saw icons grace the stage as well.

From Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus taking us once again down that “Old Town Road” to Lizzo effortlessly twerking and playing the flute to the eternally beautiful Mary J. Blige letting the youngsters know that she’s still very much a force in the game, the performances will go down in history as some of the best for the awards program. Also, a moving tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle was also on deck.

Check out the gallery of the 2019 BET Awards performances below.

2019 NBA Draft Class Didn’t Know Who Outkast Was, Old Head Twitter Is Distraught #Outkast

2019 NBA Draft

Source: Sarah Stier / Getty

The incoming 2019 rooking class of the NBA is packed with young talent, emphasis on the youth part as evidenced by their lack of Hip-Hop knowledge. When challenged on trying to guess the name of famed Atlanta duo Outkast, the draftees failed miserably but that’s to be expected due to age.

ESPN invited the rookies to a game where they had to guess several key figures and culture items from the 1990s and it was clear that these twenty-somethings were not exposed to some of the references although some of their parents surely lived through it. It was when Outkast was flashed on the screen in the lighthearted game where the gang somewhat stumbled.

It’s all in good fun and the moment began trending on Twitter Saturday (June 22) for good reason. We’ve collected some of the reactions from the social media network below.
